IN CELESTIAL THERE IS ISONA(SEEKING THE MIND OF GOD THROUGH PROPHETS)
THERE IS ITONA (COUNSELLING)
THE CHURCH PROPHETS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ISONA.
THE SHEPHERD, CHURCH ELDERS, MALE AND FEMALE (7 elders male and female) ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ITONA
BOTH ARE PRECIDED OVER BY THE SHEPHERD.
TODAY WE FOCUS MORE ON ISONA AND NOT ITONA BECAUSE
1. ISONA BRINGS MONEY FROM SPIRITUAL MATERIALS USED FOR PRAYER RITES
2. BRINGS MORE PEOPLE IN AND PLACES THE FOCUS ON THE PROPHET OR THE SHEPHERD, WHICH IS THE REASON WHY TODAY THE GIFT OF PROPHESY IS SEEN AS A YARDSTICK OF BECOMING A SHEPHERD.
HOW MANY PARISHES COUNSEL ITS MEMBERS?
AFTER A PROPHET GIVES MESSAGE, THE SHEPHERD IS MEANT TO READ IT AND DISCERN IN THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM TO MEET THE PERSONS NEED. HE IS OBLIGATED TO GIVE WORDS OF WISDOM TO THE BRETHREN TO STRENGTHEN HIS FAITH.
ISONA AND ITONA ARE BOTH UNDER THE GRACE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND MUST BE USED EFFECTIVELY FOR THE CHURCH TO FUNCTION AS CHRIST PURPOSED IT. ONLY THEN CAN THE DESIRE TO FEED THE BELLY RATHER THAN THE SPIRIT BE CURBED…..
1 Corinthians 12:7-10,12,14 KJV
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.  For the body is not one member, but many.
