Things That Make Ministers: The Eternal Minister

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Peter 1:10-12 (KJV), Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

The prophets of old received revelations of the salvation that was to come but God told them that it was not for them that they did minister but unto us.

This means that when you are a true minister of the gospel, you minister not just for your times but also to the times to come.

God’s mind for you as a minister is that you minister beyond the time of your existence in the flesh.

That is the reason why the writings of prophet Isaiah, Jeremiah or Daniel are still relevant. It is why we still read the psalms of David today.

To understand this more, think about this: there is a period of about four hundred and thirty years between the writing of the book of Malachi and that of Matthew.  

There were prophets, teachers and men of God in those days. There were people who wrote various books but God did not deem their writings worthy to be included in the scriptures. 

Why was this so? The men that ministered in those days did not qualify to go on record as eternal ministers (those whose message is for times to come). 

The question to you is, which times are you ministering to; are you ministering for now, next year or the worlds to come?

Drink from the eternal brooks. Regardless of how many years will pass, your message will always remain relevant. 

FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 71:18, Psalms 78:5-6

Drink from the eternal brooks. Regardless of how many years will pass, your message will always remain relevant.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you because I am an eternal minister. What I do transcends the veils of time and echoes through eternity. Whatever substance I leave upon the earth will benefit men years after my existence in the flesh. That is my story and testimony. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
