Martin Bottom: Context is a Con


I was flicking through my Bible the other day and found a wonderful promise from God to me. Here it is:

and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold. (Daniel 2:38)

Praise the Lord! This clearly describes my prophetic and apostolic ministry! It’s like it was written just for me. In fact, it probably was. And it's spot on. God has given me such powerful anointing that he gives people into my hand. Furthermore, I have God’s own authority when I preach and teach. People look up to me because of the deep mysteries I share and which I declare into the heavenlies. And yes, as a Kingdom Builder, I am not made of bronze or silver, but the very best gold! I am a head in the Church, and I am valuable and precious! This verse is so clearly talking about me, and was given to me by the Holy Spirit himself when I randomly turned to that page!

I was at a pastors’ fraternal when this wonderful anointed passage was given to me. I shared it immediately, expecting everyone else there to applaud and thank God. Unfortunately, a boring guy with no prophetic call was present, who started blabbering on about ‘context’. Of course I blocked my ears to his unbelief and lack of faith: other people’s poison sure ain’t gonna rob me of my blessing, no siree! I let him drone on for a while: “blah, blah, ‘pagan king’, blah, blah ‘judgement on Babylon’, blah, blah ‘original meaning’”. I then stopped him and quipped that he worships the Father, Son and Holy Bible! Thankfully, the others present roared with laughter, and we carried on as before. So the next time someone says you can’t have a verse or prophecy spoken over you and that you have got to read the context, remember this: context begins with a con! Don’t be conned!

BE BLESSED! I certainly am.
