Sharon Jefferson: The white-washed house

By Sharon Jefferson - Guest columnist

In the book of Ezekiel 13: 11-15, say unto them which daub it with untampered motor, that it shall fall; “there shall be an overflow shower: and ye shall be an overflow shower; and ye, 0 great hailstone, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall is the same as untampered motor.”

In this season the Lord is attempting to rid the Church of all of the white wash (compromise, defeat, contamination, pollution). Any time you accept standards that are lower than desirable, you are daubing your walls with white wash. When you override the Holy Spirit, more compromise. When you disobey authority, another daub with white wash. When you lash out in anger, more white wash, and the list goes on.

In this season, the Lord is cleansing His Church. It is time out for doing what we want, the way we want. There are good plans, and there are God plans. Only God plans are going to prosper in the days ahead.

There was a time when I would wonder why so many in the Church were not hearing the Word of God; I now understand. There are those in the world called the remnant. A group of people that have been wired and have been predestined to overcome and become very successful, when they follow the plans of God.

The Bible tells us that many are called but few are chosen. There is one word that separates the called from the chosen, and that is obedience. There are many who are claiming they work for the Lord, and they have never been hired for a single assignment.

In Exodus 27: 20-21, we are commanded to bring pure oil beaten for the light in the Tabernacle. In other words, the light inside of us must shine continuously night and day. The oil had to be beaten so that all of the particles were removed, to again walk in Godly authority. Likewise the particles within us all of the sin, all of the adultery, anger, jealousy, envy. All of those things cause the light within us to go out and the darkness to return.

The anointed one is on the inside of us. This is a commandment. Every bit of anointing that you will ever have is already resident on the inside of us. The key thing is the anointing must be activated. We must be clean to activate the anointing. We must be obedient to activate the anointing.

When Adam and Eve fell in the garden, the primary thing they lost was authority. It is past time for the Church of Jesus Christ. Revival is in Africa and Europe but not here in this country. When are we going to clean up our act and walk in the supernatural power of the Lord Jesus?

While I was in Uganda recently, I preached to a village in the bush for about 10 minutes and much to my surprise the entire village accepted the Lord. I preached in a church, and Revival broke out.

And the Lord began adding to the church daily. Revival is still going on. God did that, and the people were ready. What is it going to take for America to be ready?
