In military settings, there are sections of military groups referred to as SPECIAL FORCES.
Special forces are officers trained to perform unconventional missions. By unconventional, it means not based on or conforming to what is generally done in the military settings. They are group of soldiers sent to carryout special operations that a conventional soldier may not be able to accomplish.
When they are sent out, they have a clearly defined template of mission.
In like manner scripturally, heaven has SPECIAL FORCES it sends to carryout a definite, specific task on earth. These SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCES are not necessarily angels but human beings.
They are the ones sent by God to introduce a move of God that the world has never known or experienced before. They bring forth a dimension of God that the world never knew before.
They manifest God’s power in a way that the world thought is impossible.
They are there to reveal God in the deepest way through his word and by his HOLY SPIRIT.
In the beginning, Abraham received a promise. Isaac was a promise carrier. In Jacob, the promise was birthed and the twelve tribes of Israel, representing a nation, emerged. But the Lord had earlier told Abraham that his seed shall be slaves in a foreign land (Genesis 15:13). But he didn’t leave them without a plan.
The SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCES:
Joseph was a special HEAVENLY FORCE. He was sent ahead of the Israelites to secure a place for them in a foreign land and to ensure that food was stored in surplus for them. His mission was done.
Moses was a SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE who was sent with a mandate of deliverance upon the Israelites. He was to carry them to the promised land. His mission was done.
Joshua was saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that the Israelites occupied the land of promise. That was his mission template for he was a SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE. In Joshua was the birth of the army of Israel. Israel never fought a war until the time of Joshua. And he asked, “Are you for them or are you for us? And he answered. I am the commander of the Lord’s army (Joshua 5:13-15)
Gideon was a SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE who was sent to deliver the Israelites from the hands of the Midianites. Though Gideon didn’t know, but the angel that came to him addressed him in his official rank in the spirit, “… thou mighty man of valour…” (Judges 6: 7-16) Just as you have names like Lieutenant, Inspector, Commander, General in our worldly settings.
In the New testament:
John the Baptist was sent for a particular purpose – to prepare the way for the Lord. To reveal the anointed One to the world through baptism. He was a forerunner to the Lord. He worked within that mission template not turning to the left nor to the right (John 1:19- 34) The only one who can accomplish this mission is one who comes in the spirit of Elijah – a SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE.
Mary and Joseph were to be parents of the Messiah. Mary said, “I am the handmaid of the Lord”. That was her office. That was their mission for we never heard that she preached the gospel with the apostles.
The Apostles were saddled with the responsibility of continuing from where Yeshua stopped.
Now in our days, we had:
Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa.
He manifested the power of God in great dimension against witches and wizards in Nigeria. God used him to work great signs and wonders that people began to see the acts of the apostles coming alive again. He was raising the dead, healing the sick, restoring broken homes, casting out demons etc
Billy Graham – the great evangelist. I wouldn’t know where to start from in describing him. He was such a great man of God.
Apostle Ayo Joseph Babalola. The move of God through this man was such that one would describe as incredible. He would be suspended in the air during praise and worship. His life was prayer.
TB Joshua was a deliverance minister and had a great gift of prophecy.
John Knox of Scotland,
“Give me Scotland or I die!!!” For him, living was meaningless if Scotland didn’t worship God. The Queen of Scot feared his prayers more than the whole armies of Europe put together. You know what it means? The result; the effect of one man’s prayer is greater than the strength of the whole armies of a continent. That’s John Knox.
Kenneth E. Hagin
It doesn’t matter how long they lived. Their life span was their mission template. Once the task they were given was accomplished, they were called to glory. They don’t die, they are called back to base (heaven)
And they know when it’s time.
God said to Moses, go to mount. and die there.
Paul said, I have run the race, I have finished my cause. What is left for me now is the crown of glory.
Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa called his wife while she was away and told her that he thinks he has finished his mission. Before she could come back he had already been called home.
T B Joshua spoke in parables about his death.
John Knox died while listening to bible readings from his wife and friends.
The scriptures say that we are all vessels in the hands of God. While some are for ordinary occasions, some are for special occasions. There are conventional ministers and there are unconventional ministers. The vessels for special occasions don’t come out anyhow. You don’t see them often. They are sent for SPECIAL MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER OF GOD.
They appear when there is a special task to perform. Which one are you? A vessel of honor or a vessel of dishonor? A vessel for special occasions or for ordinary occasions? You know what? The scriptures say that he that purges himself is fit for the master’s use (2Timothy 2:21)
I am a special vessel of honor. And SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE with the mandate of revealing the deepest knowledge of God through his word like never before.
The Lord said in Jeremiah 3:15 and Isaiah 30 : 20-21 “I will give you a teacher who will teach you the way you should go. And you shall hear a voice behind you saying, turn to your left or right…”
Many choose for themselves teachers who would teach them what they want to hear because of their itching ears (2Timothy 4:1-4) But the Lord has teachers He prepared with his message to teach the people what He wants them to hear. To teach them the mind of God (Jeremiah 3:15)
There is a prophecy of an upcoming SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCES in the book revelations in this end time (Rev. 11:1-14) They would come to perform a definite task and assignment which only the Lord knows. For I have been praying to understand what the purpose of their coming would mean. Their coming has been prophesied and they shall surely come for the word of God never fails.
Which vessel are you unto the Lord? For honor and not for dishonor- a SPECIAL HEAVENLY FORCE.
God bless you.
