FOLLOWERS OF THEM (The Advantage of Models and Patterns) by Apostle Joshua Selman

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12 (KJV)_One of the ways we excel in the Kingdom of God is through the advantage of models and patterns bestowed upon us by God.

There are two (2) dimensions to transformation:

  1. The principle of followership. (Hebrews 6:12, Isaiah 51:2)
  2. Looking unto Jesus (The law of beholding) Hebrews 12:1-2

When it comes to destiny fulfillment, God’s methods, ways, and strategies are far superior to man’s methods. (Isaiah 55:8-9)When it comes to your becoming, fulfilling destiny, and transformation, life will always present you with two options:a. The way of The Lordb. Your wayGod’s methods, ways, and strategies are far superior to man’s methods. (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Divine patterns forerun the glory of God. The glory of God is a capture of everything that makes God who He is; the multifaceted nature of God being expressed in a man.Every time, you see the glory of God revealed in the life of an individual, it is proof that a divine pattern has been kept.

When you find people rise from their lowly estate to a glorious destiny, it is because they have accessed and adhered to divine patterns. Every time you find a man of stature in life and destiny, among the many patterns that have been kept is the law of followership. (Matthew 4:19)

For as long as you walk in keeping a divine pattern, there will not be a decline in your life.Followership is one of the mysteries of the kingdom by which men become mighty. (Matthew 4:19, Acts 4:13) You’re made in life and destiny by who you choose to follow. Human models inspire hunger and passion in the hearts of those who follow them._You are made in life and destiny, by who you choose to follow. (Matthew 4:19, Acts 4:13)


?A model is an example, a prototype, a template, and a reference. Models in many regards, can be foundations. Transformation and replication are only as hard as the distance between you and a model. ‘Becoming’ is difficult in the absence of a model.One of the ways God answers prayers is by introducing people into your life; to demonstrate that everything you see in prophecy, you can become, not by guessing your way around._Pray: Lord, I am tired of going around in cycles. Now I know that there is an easier way to rise in life and destiny!

To replicate means to reproduce results in men. _ To pioneer means to start something new. Pioneering anything, move or dimension is very challenging because largely, you may not have references or enough references.Pioneering any move of God, any spiritual activity is usually difficult. Pioneering is immensely challenging as it often involves walking alone for many years._Whenever God desires to usher in a new dimension for His people, He selects individuals capable of bringing that potential into the realm of humanity (Isaiah 9:8).

Two limitations of Pioneering:

_1. Pioneering requires humility to keep growing and embrace improvements without resistance when they come.

2. The current move of God often always seems to fight the next move of God.

Most pioneers are emotionally connected to their pain. Every time they see an improvement to what they have done, they fight it. Models must be secured enough to make room for improvements without feeling inferior. Technology is proof to us, that God is in motion. The best of everything still has room for improvement. Every possibility in the spiritual realm opens up a portal on earth, where it is preserved until when needed. Many times, God withholds such possibilities and experiences from Believers to avoid the creation of negative patterns and errors, in The Body of Christ.

If as a pioneer, you are still the best version of yourself, at the end of your life, you failed.The excellence of being a pioneer is that you build people who become improvements to what you pioneered. The stature of a man in the spirit is beyond the quality of Rhema.The excellency of being a pioneer is to raise people who become an improvement of what you pioneered. Your followers success and their greatness, is what proves that you did well.

Models remain models by continuing to be students as they model. As long as you maintain a student mindset in the spiritual realm, there are no limits to how far you can rise. Never be embarrassed or ashamed as a model if you discover yourself in the classroom, in the school of the spirit. Settle down and learn with honor.Let your dedication and commitment to growth be greater than your ego.
