Over the years, many people have asked me why we do The Platform. A good number of people thought maybe there was an underlying political motive. Let me state categorically; there wasn't then and there isn’t any now.
The Church i.e. the Body of Christ consist of different members with diverse roles united under the headship of Christ. As the human body has various organs carrying out specific assignments so does Paul say there is diversity in the Body of Christ. (1 Cor 12: 5,6)
The Platform is not a believer’s meeting neither is it primarily an evangelistic tool to get people born-again though it may serve that purpose in some unconventional ways that results in the individual being reborn. The Platform simply has the prophetic function of preservation.
The Bible says we are the salt of the earth. Salt preserves and in some instances, helps to stop or at least slow down the decaying process. Whatever we do and however we pray, it is inevitable that this present world being under divine judgment will cease to exist one day. God, to minimize the impact of this eventuality has placed His Church to act in one of its functions as the salt of the earth so that the process of corruption and moral decay is held back.
There is a mystery of iniquity already at work, and we are of the conviction that the only reason why the world hasn't imploded is because there is a restraining force within it, acting as its salt. Amp bible reads 2 Thess 2:7 "For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way".
The Church therefore serves as the restraining force against this complete decay. The Law played this role partially in the old covenant by restraining man with a sense of guilt. This was to avoid the type of situation that occurred in the days of Noah when God had to intervene by judging the earth with destruction. Today, the church with intercession and prophetic acts intervenes in society, pouring out words by His grace, seasoned with salt.
Join us in prayers as we push the frontiers of the kingdom into all aspects of our lives asking God to grant utterance to our speakers. God bless you all.
