A call to stand out for Jesus

By Witness Kenpaul Obieke

Reference Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 KJV

[16] And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. [17] Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, [18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”


If you have not answered this call to stand out for Jesus, you are useless to God no matter what you are doing or think you are achieving. Some might be as well standing out for religion not Christ in ignorance. You are called as a Christian ✝️ or believer to stand out for Christ not to fit in with the world in anyway. When you are not standing out and up for Christ you are standing out and up for Satan. There is no sitting on the fence. God is looking for people in the order of Christ Jesus who He will move and walk through their lives right now. Jesus came to show us an example to follow.

He stood out for God even against Jewish religion and God moved and walked in Him. Jesus is the First among many brethren and if you are not looking unto Him as perfect example you cannot be used of God. There are people who think God is using them but soon and very soon will be rejected by Jesus that He never knew them. God only uses the available. Many of the people you see today performing abracadabra are being used by Satan despite calling the name of Jesus and using the Bible. Some of them don’t even know and that is why they preach accursed gospel to their accursed congregation.

1 Timothy 4:11-12 KJV

[11] These things command and teach. [12] Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

You see some people boast of their calling outside the real and main calling without which their so called calling is useless. Anywhere you are, the call to be an example for Christ is on you. University today is ‘unimorality/uniniquity’. But if you are a lover of Christ you can always stand out for Christ and don’t eat out of the contaminated table of Satan like others. That is what makes you unique and Heaven proud.

1 Peter 2:9-12 KJV

[9] But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: [10] Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. [11] Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; [12]. Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.”

Having understanding of the issue of your calling by the Lord to stand out in this life is the decider of your glorious destiny with God. Our perfect example will ever remain Jesus Christ. He stood out in the midst of all rejections and persecutions. Knowing who you are called to be makes it possible for you to really stand out in front of any form of challenge. Let it always wring bell in your ears that there is a special Heavenly call upon you to stand out for Jesus.

1 Peter 2:21-25 KJV

[21] For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: [22] Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: [23] Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: [24] Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. [25] For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”

To follow the footsteps of Jesus Who answered His Father’s call and today is seated at the Right Hand of His Father in honor and glory, should fire you up. Stand out for Jesus in every way and see Heaven celebrate you in time and eternity. Separate relationship with God through Christ from religion and stand out for Christ. This is how God becomes both your Father and God and will stand out for you any time. When you don’t touch unclean things God makes you untouchable. This is the place of the remnant. Those who have answered their call to stand out and stand up for Jesus as soldiers of the Cross, the end-time soldiers. They are disciples not apples, depopulating hell and populating Heaven, lifting up Jesus high anywhere. Their consecration is the concentration of their power. They know it and so holiness and righteousness means a lot to them. This world is not their home.

They know it that a man’s life doesn’t consist of what he possesses but the souls he is returning to Heaven. They don’t beg for blessing for they are a blessing. All powers bow before them because they have become mobile temples for the soon coming King of Glory, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Answer your own call to stand out for Jesus and stop forcing to fit into the perishing world. Stay Christlike and Heaven worthy.
