Divine Inner Caucus Part 1 by Dr D.K Olukoya
This message is not for everybody but those who understand the power of that popular hymn which says, “1 am thine 0 Lord, 1 have heard thy voice and it
spoke thy love to me; but 1 long to rise in the wings of faith and be closer drawn to thee. Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord to the cross where thou hast died, draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord, to thy precious bleeding side. ”
James 4:8 says, “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and pur0D
This is a very deep verse.
EXECUTIVE MEN OF GOD
There are some people who operate like executive men and executive women of God. It appears as if they sit in a meeting with God and take decisions together with Him. These people belong to the inner caucus of God and of the Holy Spirit. There was a man like that in the Bible called Elisha; he was a very interesting personality. It will take us one year to study this man and his ministry. Some people call him Elisha, the executive man of God.
Elisha was a bald headed prophet, unlike Elijah that was hairy therefore, he did not have a handsome appearance. Elisha performed more miracles than any
other person in the Bible, apart from the Lord Jesus Christ. Elisha related
with all classes of people, whether poor, rich or noble. Elisha was a man
of uncommon faith and uncommon courage. He was never afraid of anyone. At one time, he told a king, “You came to look for me? Why don’t you go to the idols of your father’s house? If not for the fact that this king of Judah is with you today, I would have known what to do to you.” He was completely dedicated
The Bible says whosoever lays his hands on the plough and looks back is not fit for the kingdom of heaven. As soon as Elijah discovered Elisha, the latter waved goodbye to farming the same day.
He abandoned that assignment and followed God. A great example of a
loyal and faithful disciple. Elisha was on the hills, while the Syrian army surrounded them, and his servant was so afraid of what he saw. He drew the attention of his master to this frightening sight but Elisha was not moved. He only said, “Father, open the eyes of this servant so that he may see that those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” In other words, there
were some unseen powers backing them up. Likewise there are divine forces backing us up. And the power with us is more than those with the adversary. When God opened the eyes of the servant, he found that the chariots and armies of heaven were all over the hills.
This message focuses on the people who are not happy with their spiritual life and want to climb higher. If you are still interested in a life of sin or a low-level-Christian life, this message is not for you. If you are still wallowing in sin, this
message is not for you. It is for those who are determined to get admitted
into the circle and inner caucus of the Almighty.
The Bible says, draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you. This means that you are as close to God as you personally want to be. If you decide to be far away from Him, He too will be far away from you. It may be only one step that you have taken away from Him but He will take ten miles away from you. This
is why you must be very careful and not allow yourself to be deceived.
MANY OF US ARE TIRED OF BEING
PUSHED HERE AND THERE BY THE
ENEMY BUT OUR SPIRITUAL
HANDS ARE TOO SHORT TO DO
BATTLE WITH THE ENEMY
God has favourites. Every man is equal before God but God has favourites. The Bible says that God does nothing except He reveals it to his servants the prophets, which means those prophets are His favourites. There are some people
He does not talk to. Would to God that everyone reading this can become a prop everyone reading this can become a prophet or prophetess of God. Would to God that sisters will realise that there is an acute scarcity of prophetesses and that many of the things they are running after affectionately such as fashion, jewelry, money, make-up and all kinds of worldly things will perish as soon as they are dead. None of those things will be able to answer any question for you once you close your eyes in death. Will it not be more useful to move close to God and be able to download what is in the mind of God into your life? Will it not be more useful to move close to God and be in that inner caucus?
God does nothing except He reveals it to His servants the prophets. If God has to abandon you and seek someone else to send a message to you, it means you have a problem. If God cannot talk to you again and you have to run to the mountain to see someone about what God has for you then, there is a problem. You should instead cry to God and say “Father, why? What is it in my life that needs to go so that heaven will come down into my soul?”
God has favourites. The Bible says, Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and God did not care or bother. The same Bible says Jonah went away from the presence of the Lord but God pursued him. God sent fire and brimstone upon Sodom and Gomorrah and warned Lot and his family as they departed not to look back. Lot’s wife looked back and became a pillar of salt. The Bible says, Abraham the friend of God, sat down and was watching the inferno and did not become a pillar of salt.
Why should God come into the temple and call for Samuel and not Eli? In fact, Eli did not even hear. Why is it that each time the angel wanted to visit, he would always go to the mother of Samson and not the father? God has favourites. One man I am going to ask the Lord to show to me when I get to heaven is a man in the Bible called Ananias. Paul was killing and persecuting Christians until God confronted him on the way to Damascus, and changed him.
Paul, after that encounter, went into the city while on three days dry fasting and prayer. God said, “Ananias” and he answered, “Lord, here I am.” God sent him to a particular house to meet Saul and lay hands upon him that he might
receive his sight and also receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Ananias
said, “Lord, that man came here to kill us.” God said, “Don’t worry, he
is now an instrument in my hand.” And because Ananias was part of the
inner caucus, he was not afraid. He went there straight and it is lovely to
read in the Bible that when Ananias met Paul, he said, “Brother Saul.”
Here was someone who came to kill him but God used Ananias to deliver
Paul, and he rater wrote two-thirds of the New Testament Bible.
Ananias was God’s favourite.
If you have made up your mind that you do not want to be an outer court Christian but to be in the inner caucus, raise your right hand up and pray thus: “My Father, this is my life, appear, in the name of Jesus.”
INNER CAUCUS OF JESUS
Jesus called seventy disciples to start with. After sometime, He narrowed down to twelve disciples.
Later, they became three: Peter, James and John who were in the inner caucus. And later, it was only John the beloved. It was to John the beloved that Jesus handed over His mother when He was on the cross.
He said to John, “Son, behold your mother. Mother, look at your son.”
If you want to become God’s favourite, there are conditions that
must be met. The eyes of the Lord are ever going to and fro to see those
whose hearts are close to Him. The scarcity of the power of God and the
scarcity of the move of God in any generation is not the fault of God
but lack of usable materials. There is always vacancy in the inner caucus of God. The serious question to consider is, by the time you leave this planet, what will be written about you? Will men be able to trace your footsteps on the sands of time?
Many of us are tired of being pushed here and there by the enemy but our spiritual hands are too short to do battle with the enemy.
Sometimes, when I go through the Bible, and I read church history, I wonder whether we are going to the same heaven with the people in the Bible. Paul the Apostle was beheaded. Peter was crucified upside down. There are men and women of God who are deep in the things of God in our generation. I mean those who belong to the inner caucus of Jehovah. I am talking about those who operate beyond the level of normal human beings.
Many people are seeking deliverance instead of moving close to God to receive power that the enemy can never overcome. There are men who belong to that inner caucus and you too can belong there if you want to. You are as close to God as you personally want to be. If all of a sudden, you increase your prayer temperature, Bible reading, consecration, and fasting level, you will find that your life will begin to change because the closer you move to God, the better and hotter you become, and the farther the enemy.
Only a crazy mosquito would play on the surface of a hot iron. This means that when you move close to God, and God is a consuming fire, you too will become fire. And when you become fire, the enemy cannot handle you. This is the challenge of our present-day Christianity. This generation like I always say, is the most powerless generation of Christians that we have.
OTHERS MAY YOU CANNOT
If you want to belong to that inner caucus of the Almighty, get ready to be crucified because God will draw you into a life of crucifixion and humility. He will demand serious obedience. He will cause you not to be able to follow
. other people. He will cause you not to be able to measure yourself with
other Christians. He will let other people do things that He will never allow you to do. Other Christians may be doing some things and it would seem as if nothing happens to them but you that want to belong to the inner caucus, if you do those things, He will deal with you thoroughly, That is why I said earlier that this message is for those who really want to-mount up.
Others may be playing tricks on God, you cannot. Others may be scheming and manipulating, you cannot. Others may be dressing one way to church and another way outside, you cannot. Others may have hidden concubines, hidden
girls and hidden. boys all over the place but you cannot. If you try to copy them, you will meet with failure. Others may know the drugs to take and not get pregnant during fornication, but if you try it, you will meet with a sharp rebuke and opposition from heaven. Others may be very careless with the opposite
sex but you cannot. If you practise the things that others are doing because you see them doing it, and nobody complains in their church, you will discover one day, that your heavenly vision, divine mission and dreams will vanish. Others may be stealing from God, but you cannot because the hands you are using to
steal cannot be a hand of signs and wonders. You cannot afford to step
out of line because you have been consecrated and sanctified for higher calling.
These are conditions for being a member of the inner caucus of God:
It is a personal decision to serve God and to be one of His favourites.
- Anything in my life that is preventing my walk with God, come out and die, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost fire, incubate my life, in the name of’ Jesus.
- All evil strangers, flee from my spirit; and let the Holy Spirit take control, in the name of Jesus.
- Blood of Jesus, laminate my life, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, make me a mysterious wonder, in the name of Jesus.
Kindly share God’s word to bless others!!!
