Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
(2 Chronicles 20:20 KJV).

Loved ones in Christ Jesus, I hope you are moving in the strength of the Holy Spirit. I have been sharing about the ministry keys, and I believe the Holy Spirit is speaking to you. I want to share with you some divine keys that will enable you to connect with your spiritual leader(s). In the ministry of God, God has given every Christian a shepherd to follow. Failure to follow the shepherd will hinder you in your Christian life.

I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.
(Jeremiah 23:4 KJV).

God deals with us according to the knowledge we have about Him. He deals with us according to the covenant we have made with Him. God deals with us by His grace and mercies. Don’t expect God to speak from Heaven if you have not trained your spirit to hear His voice in that dimension. There are various ways the Holy Spirit speaks to us.
  • The Holy Spirit speaks to us through the Word (Holy Bible).
  • He can speak to us through dreams.
  • He can speak to us in an audible voice.
  • He can speak to us through the Visions (it can be an open vision or a closed vision).
  • God can speak to us through trance.
  • He can speak to us through godly friends.
  • He can speak to us through our godly neighbours.
  • He can speak to us through our parents and guardians.
  • He can speak to us through the voice of His Holy angels.
  • He can speak to us through our heart (Inner witness).
  • He can speak to you through the shepherd(s), He has given you.

God speaks in various ways. Contact me if you want my teachings on how to hear the voice of God on my YouTube channel. In this article, I will briefly share with you nine ways the Holy Spirit can speak to you through your spiritual leader(s). I chose spiritual leaders because we are the mouthpiece of God. God will do nothing unless He speaks through His servants.

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
(Amos 3:7 KJV).

Below are some ways you can use to connect with your spiritual leader(s). By the grace of God, these keys work for me. If you follow these keys. You will get excellent results that will help you connect with your spiritual leader. This will help you connect with the purpose of God for your life.

1. Build your spirit with the Word (Holy Bible).
The first key to help you build a strong connection with your spiritual leader is to be a man or a woman of the Word. Building your spirit with the Word is a great asset to your spiritual growth (See 1 Peter 2:2). I have Bible study tools (Power Bible CD, E-Sword, the Word and many Bible study software) on my laptop. I use them during studies. I also have a Ryrie Bible study book and other excellent Bible study books (Hard copies). These Bible study tools help me a lot when I am doing my quiet time.

If you build your spirit with the Word, your spirit and soul become active to the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking through your spiritual leader. The Holy Spirit never contradicts the Word (See 1 John 5:7-8). When you build your spirit and transform your soul with the Word, the Holy Spirit prepares you to hear the revelation coming out from your spiritual leader. Get my books.

2.  Build a prayer life on your own.

Pray without ceasing.
(1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV).

The second key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to build a consistent prayer life. Prayer is a vital element in your Christian life. By the grace of God, I have built my spirit with midnight prayers to the extent that the Holy Spirit always wakes me up in the middle of the night to pray. When I allow my flesh to dominate me, the Holy Spirit will wake me up several times to pray. Loved one in Christ Jesus, never underestimate the power of prayer because prayer empowers our spirit to overcome evil traps. Failure to watch and pray will lead to temptation (See Matthew 26:41).
  • Why did Jesus Christ pray all night?
  • Why did Jesus Christ separate Himself from the disciples and communed with God through prayers?
  • Why did the Holy Spirit drive Jesus Christ into the wilderness to fast and pray?

There are secrets in prayer. When you build a prayer life, it helps your spirit and soul adjust to the spiritual level of your leader. When you build a prayer life, it helps you build your spiritual ears to enable you to hear the revelations behind the words of your shepherd. Some people hear the Word of God with their carnal ears. Such Christians receive little when their spiritual leader speaks to them.

Prayer activates your spiritual senses and makes your spiritual antenna receive the power within the words of your spiritual leader. The reason Apostle Peter walked on the sea was that he was a man of prayer. The reason Apostle Peter said to Jesus He is the Son of God was that he was a man of prayer. Failure to pray will make your spirit insensitive to the spiritual power within the words of your spiritual leader. Get my book “The Seven Secret Keys of Prayer” for a more profound revelation.




3. Soak into the teachings and preaching of the leader.
The third key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to connect with the preaching and teachings of your spiritual leader. When you consistently hear the sermons of your spiritual leader, it builds a fountain of faith within your soul. Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Rome.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
(Romans 10:17 KJV).

The more you hear the sermons of your spiritual leader, you become one with the leader. Your faith increases. It connects your faith to the faith of your spiritual leader. His thoughts become your thought. I wonder why most Christians cannot receive from their spiritual leader. If you want to connect with your spiritual leader, connect with his or her sermons. It doesn’t matter where you live and where your spiritual leader lives, just connect with his sermons. You will receive a new level of anointing resting on your spiritual leader.

4. Be addicted to the books of the leader
The fourth key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to read the books of your spiritual leader. If your spiritual leader has not written books, connect with his or her sermons. Apostle Paul commanded his ministerial associate Timothy to give heed to reading.

Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
(1 Timothy 4:13 KJV).

Reading is another level of connecting with your spiritual leader. When you read the books of your spiritual leader(s), it makes you connect with the grace God has invested in his life. You become a partaker of the grace of the leader when you connect with his books (also through his sermons). Through his books, you will know his ideas, plans, and Spirit resting on Him.

 5. See the leader with your spirit.
The fifth key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to see him as greater than you. It doesn’t matter his age, tribe, and educational level. Most Christians check the educational level, other carnal and unnecessary things about a spiritual leader. If you do that, you will receive nothing from the leader.

When you only look at the physical appearance of a leader before you connect with him, you are carnal, soulish and blind. First check the spiritual level, anointing, authority, mantle, and the leaders your spiritual leader follows because that is the most important thing. If the leader is called and chosen by God, the Holy Spirit will bear witness in your spirit.



6. Honour the leader with what you have.
The sixth key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to reverence him. Have a servanthood spirit. Don’t be too proud to humble yourself before the leader. Humility is a great key. God knows your heart. He knows what you carry. Whatever you can do within your capacity to show that you respect your leader, do it. If you can sow a seed, do it. A seed can be in the form of money, food, cloth, a word of encouragement, interceding for the leader from your heart and obeying his godly counsel. The most important thing God looks at is your heart. If you honour your spiritual leader from your heart, God will bless you with the grace upon his or her life.

7. Bind the spirit of familiarity in your life.
The seventh key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to bind the spirit of familiarity. Familiarity is the most common weapon the enemy uses against Christians. This happens to Christians who are close to the leader. Jesus could not perform great miracles in His hometown because of familiarity. When you become too familiar with your leader, it makes your spirit unable to receive from him. Don’t become too familiar with your spiritual leader, and you will receive from him. Read more: How familiarity affects the anointing.




8. Never speak against, slander, and backstab the leader with your tongue and in your heart.
Most often, people who speak against leaders receive curses. When you slander your leader, you break your connection with his or her spirit. People cannot connect with their leader because they stab them with their tongue and in their hearts. Such people will never receive the blessings and the anointing on the leader. 

Speaking against leaders open the portals for evil spirits to attack you in the realms of the spirit. It can lead to backsliding, sickness, and premature death. Speak encouraging words about your leader when he is around or not around, and you will always receive from him. Backstab the leader, and you will receive curses, the judgment of God and calamities. I hope you know what happened to Miriam, Judas Iscariot, Absalom, and other wicked people who destroyed the integrity of leaders.



9. Disconnect with people and groups who consistently and willfully hate and speak against your leader (s).
The ninth key to help you connect with your spiritual leader is to distance yourself from people, groups, and an environment that speaks evil about your leader and innocent people. People who insult, discredit and slander innocent people are blind, cursed, and lost. If you join them, the curse following them will fall on you. Don’t sit among them! 

If the person or the group is ignorant of their actions, teach them the Word of God and intercede for them. If they know of their actions, rebuke them. If they repent, stay with them, if they retaliate, break out from the environment because it will affect you. When you stay with them, their words will damage your spirit and soul. When this happens, you become rebellious and you cannot receive from the leader. (Meditate on Psalms 1:1-3).
