It's a comfort zone. It's a place of peace, but not a place of prosperity. Just established. Planted.
I have seen it in ministries that did really well for a time and then hit the wall. Shut down. Didn't die, just stopped growing. Stopped prospering. They silenced or ignored the prophet.
When the prophetic is suppressed or ignored a church, a ministry will stagnate or even die.
Apply good business principles and you can build a God Club. It will have little power. But you can...for a time. Look at the Chrystal Cathedral. Look at the hosts of mega ministries dying on the vine all around the nation.
They lost their life when the prophetic was silenced.
They ignored a key scripture:
The problem to prosper in ministry is not about being established, it's about heeding the prophet. Too many people try to rationalize, use reason, logic, use worldly patterns and circumstance to deal with difficulty. The word of the Lord is among them and they don't heed.
“And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, hear me O Judah, and ye inhabitant of Jerusalem!! Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established, believe his prophet, so shall ye prosper” (2 Chronicles 20:20), (KJV).
There is a reward for that too.
Silence from the throne.
