Many people are ordained, consecrated, or Affirmed. My question is WHO did it? Do they have authority in your life? Have they witnessed your breaking & making? Have you ever submitted to them as an authority in your life? From left to right... Bishop Anthony Johnson (ordained me as an Elder, years later ordained me as a Prophet, years later Affirmed my Apostleship), Bishop Tudor Bismark (has been my apostolic covering since before we planted our church...in fact he recommended the name change of our church from Ekklesia Worship Assembly to his church's namesake New Life Covenant Church. We first met him and connected with him 15 years ago), Bishop Aaron Sneed my first mentor, coach, & Dad. He was the first voice to prophesy all that we are walking in today. From the time I interviewed for membership with him at Prayer Tabernacle [22 years ago this year] until now he has been a consistent pillar & voice in my life. He also married my wife and I]), Archbishop Hartman (not pictured - has been a mentor and dear friend for about 15 years. He's observed our ministry and all it's phases and stages), and Bishop J.C. White (not pictured) who can forget the SHUT-INS at TFT with Youthful Praise more than 20 years ago....I spent TIME at TFT on that floor or walking/running "The Track." These are the fathers and voices of my formative years. When THEY affirm you, it carries more weight. So if there be any opposing or dissenting voices, they really have NO voice - because they weren't even there. These men of God have a credible witness.
