“My mum knelt down to welcome me. My wife knows when to switch from calling me baby to my father” – Pastor advises Christians on how to receive their prophets
Nigerian clergyman, Gospel Agochukwu, has taken to Facebook to advise Christians to treat their pastors with honour and respect.
Citing an example, the founder of Shekinah Arena Gospel Ministries, Port Harcourt, explained that his wife knows when to switch from calling him ‘baby’ to her ‘father’, and his mother once knelt down to welcome him to the shock of many.
He said people should not make the mistake of being too familiar with their pastors.
According to him, some people don’t partake of the grace on their pastor’s life because they don’t treat their pastors with respect.
He added that people should not make the mistake of being too familiar with their pastors because there’s a thin line between familiarity and functionality.

“MY WIFE KNOWS WHEN TO SWITCH FROM CALLING ME MY BABY TO MY FATHER.
FROM MY HUSBAND TO MY MAN OF GOD.
TO THOSE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH US WHAT WE WEAR IS CLOTHE, BUT TO SOMEONE ELSE IT IS CALLED MANTLE.
THERE WAS A DAY MY MUM KNELT DOWN TO WELCOME ME TO HER OFFICE AND HER COLLEAGUES ASKED HER NOT TO DO THAT AGAIN BUT SHE SAID I AM HIS MOTHER PHYSICALLY BUT HE IS MY SPIRITUAL FATHER.
SHE TOLD THEM HOW SHE GAVE BIRTH TO ME IN A CRUSADE GROUND AND HOW A DOVE ENTERED THE CHURCH ON MY CHILD DEDICATION DAY.
FROM THAT DAY HER COLLEAGUES BECAME CONVERTS TO PARTAKE IN MY ANOINTING. THEY BEGAN TO TESTIFY FROM MY PRAYERS.
Mathew 10: 41 ” He that Recieves a prophet in the name of a prophet receives the prophets reward”.
The mode you recieve your prophet is to the extent you are made.
When you recieve a prophet in the name of your brother you recieve a brothers reward.
If you recieve him in the name of colleague you recieve a colleagues reward.
If you recieve him in the name of your husband it is husbands reward you must get.
This is why it seems asif oils of Men of God dont Have expression on the lives of certain people it is because of the mode and methods they recieved it.
There is a thin line between familiarity and Functionality.
You dont speak about encounter you manifest encounter.
Any encounter you have energy to explain did not penetrate you.
Dont make the mistake of See Finish so you will not be soon Finished.
Once God gives a man an office dont relate with him on the physical pedestal..
He is your classmate, friend, colleague but God has distinguished the individual to be a spiritual blessing to you.
You know him too well doesnt mean you shouldn’t celebrate him; sow to him or pray for him.”
