If many of you young leaders keep listening to these bobblehead preachers out here and do not follow the directions and connections God is pointing you to. You will find yourself left behind with no anointing nor power or even an audience and a lack of influence.
It is god who raises
Too many of us are trying to remain faithful to an old system that God is no longer using. When God raised Joshua, Moses’ successor. The Israelites, God’s people had to learn to become warriors – soldiers; and literally put on their battle fatigues and fight for their Promised Land that God had promised them. Those who refused to get with the change, the shift God had made and put on the new mantles, a new outlook, a different perspective, and a new attitude. They died in their stubbornness, both physically and spiritually. (Compare to Exodus 16:3; Numbers 13:27-29; Numbers 16:1-40).
These men and women and far too many of God’s leaders refused to change, to move in the new direction God was showing them. They refused to make room and elevate those God was calling to the frontline of the battle as leaders. Just as Moses did with Joshua.

The word of the lord
When the LORD God gives a word, it is for the sole purpose to teach, reproof, correct, or train His servants - His Body, so that every member within the Body of Christ may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17). For the LORD has given the Body of Christ apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip the Saints for the work of service, to encourage one another, and to build up the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Thessalonians 5:11).
