This Is The Message by Apostle Joshua Selman


“This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭(KJV‬‬)
The value of a man of God, a ministry, and any spiritual platform is measured in the kind and quality of the message given to them and how intentional they are in dispensing the message.
Every spiritual attack on a man of God, a ministry, or on any vision is ultimately intended to silence the message.
Satan attacks people so that they get to a point that they’re not heard.

Satan’s Two-fold Attack on a Believer:

1. Attack on the character of the individual:
Satan attacks the character because character is what gives credence and believability to the Minister and His message.
2. Quality of the individual’s message:
The message is powerful; it gives men a new orientation and structures their mindset to receive superior knowledge.
“And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:7-8‬ ‭(KJV‬‬)

Every ministry, calling, and commission from God that seeks to find expression, must have these 5 essentials:

1. The Message/Mandate:
A holistic capture that represents your contribution to the Body of Christ.
(Matthew 4:17, John 10:10, Matthew 10:7-8)
For every vision that must strive, people must be committed to establishing that mandate.
2. The Strategy for Execution (The Pattern). (Matthew 10:5-16)
Having the correct mandate does not equal success; the pattern for it’s execution plays a vital role to guarantee
3. The Platform:
The platform represents any structure, physical or otherwise, that allows you to communicate the counsel of God.
You must have a structure that enables you to carry out the mandate given by God, to you.
4. Resources ( Human and Material):
(Romans 10:14-15, Haggai 1:8)
It is not money that makes the vision; money only amplifies it.
As a Preacher, people will vet and assess you to see if you’re worthy of committing their resources to you.
5. The Backing:
(Mathew 10:1, Micah 3:8, Acts 1:8, Acts 4:33)
In addition to the message, you must obtain empowerment by The Spirit
It is dangerous to run with the message alone, you need the power to run with precision and efficacy.
It is impossible to receive power unknowingly.
There are things that take time to manifest, power is not one of them!
More than oratory, eloquence, and value, it takes power to carry out the mandate.
In the spirit realm, it takes power to see, hear and speak effectively.
Power is the capacity to bring evidence to your speakings and solutions to problems.
You capture the attention of a generation when you become a solution provider by power.
In the name of Jesus, I separate you from a natural life; I stretch forth my hand and declare, receive power!
As a Minister, it takes more than preaching to truly be a blessing.
There are dimensions in the spirit, yet to be manifested; all you see is not all there is.
You must understand the dynamics of prayer, learn how to stretch your spirit man, and enlarge your capacity in the spirit realm.
There is a level of hunger you must sustain to eliminate all forms of excuses that may limit you.
Acts 10:44

Seven Doctrinal Pillars and Mandate that Make up The Vision of Koinonia:

1. The Message of Salvation.
(John 3:16-17, Romans 3:23-24, 10:10-13)
Our assignment is to ensure that the revelation of Jesus as Saviour reaches the earth or to reveal the Gospel of salvation to nations.
2. The Message of Transformation.
(Romans 12:2, Philippians 2:5, Ephesians 4:18, 2 Timothy 3:15-17)
This is to bring people to the mysteries (knowledge) and teachings of God’s Kingdom to equip the Saints.
3. The Message of Empowerment.
(Acts 1:8, 2:42, 6:4, Micah 3:8, Revelation 1:1)
This is to build people up in prayer and help them cultivate intimacy with The Holy Spirit.
4. The Message of the Supernatural.
(Acts 4:33, Romans 15:19)
This has to do with the demonstration of the realities of the Kingdom of God through signs, wonders, deliverance, and breakthroughs.
5. The Message of Purpose (Kingdom advance and societal transformation).
(John 18:37, Acts 26:12-19, Matthew 5:13,16, 28:18-20, 6:10).
This has to do with raising agents of transformation and change in the cosmos.
What gives credence to all our desires on earth is purpose. We must understand God’s program towards societal transformation.

Every Purpose in God has a dual strategy:

1. It benefits (advances) the programme of God.
2. It benefits the territory where the contributor resides.
As a Believer, your purpose represents your contribution first to Kingdom advancement, and then societal transformation.

6. The Message of Unity and Love.

This message is for the unity of faith in the Body of Christ.
Do not use your status, influence, or position to tear down the Church. Respect the fathers of faith and sow seeds of honor into their life.
Zechariah 4:2
As a Minister, when you become the Alpha and Omega of your ministry, it will reflect your limitations. Humility is an essential key to rise in God’s Kingdom.
7. The Message of Lasting Peace and Fulfilment.
(Ecclesiastes 12:12-13, Mark 8:36, Genesis 12:3, 2 Timothy 4:7)
Here we teach messages on relationships, prosperity, and fulfillment.
God desires that we live fulfilled lives and our pursuit in life is to live meaningful lives.
Fulfillment is the satisfaction derived from knowing that you lived your life effectively, serving the purposes of God’s Kingdom, and being a blessing to humanity.
The highest definition of success is Peace; progress is useless until peace is added to it.
