In all the nations under heaven there are offices reserved for the Secret Services all over the world to scout for, gather and process all relevant secret and sensitive information to the advantage of the nations that had set up those organizations. In some cases, these type of information gathering are carried out by human agents or on the other hands by the application of electronic gadgets to gather data and subsequently process them.
One of the obvious code of conducts of these organization would be, “Maintain a high level of confidentiality of the privilege information of our organization.” Perhaps you wonder why, it is all because it is a ‘classified’ information. Although the scripture says that, “there is no new thing under the sun. ” (Ecclesiastes 1:9) This should not be a factor to be used as the reason why privilege information should be mismanaged and allowed to fall into the wrong hands. Every privilege information is time sensitive in the hands of the privileged few. It must be held in trust and be jealously guarded in the hands of those who are privy to have access to the information until it must have been strategically applied for its intended purposes.
Wrong exposure of the privilege information can trigger off unwarranted chaos in the community. It can cause corporate entity to lose a fortune in terms of money and business opportunity especially in this environment of economic and industrial warfare where some organizations steal and hijack the blue-print of industrial research of another corporation to benefit themselves.
This code of conduct is not only applicable in the secular matters, the disciples of Jesus Christ were spiritually instructed to maintain confidentiality of the privilege information they had. When Peter was inspired in the realm of the Spirit to decode the deity of Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ told the disciples not to discuss the knowledge with no one then. “Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.” (Matthew 16:20) On the second occasion after Peter, James and John had witnessed the transfiguration of Jesus Christ, our Lord once again instructed them not to disclose it to no one. “And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.” (Matthew 17:9) Perhaps you are wondering why this precious information should not fall into the hands like the Pharisees and the Sadducees the persecutors of Jesus Christ then.
Having this at the back of our minds, we need to ask ourselves, how we have been processing the divine visions and guidance we received from God? “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” (Habakkuk 2:2) Do we run with our visions according to the word of God or do we make it a subject of debate with the people that do not appreciate nor know the value of the precious vision like the hostile families of Joseph in the Bible? “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29) The prayer points of individuals that we have privilege to pray about, the personal information of others that comes to our knowledge during counseling session are spiritual classified information. It is not meant for public consumption. It is not meant to be disseminated to anyone. It is not a subject of gist with friends. Maintain a high level of confidentiality concerning these unique information that came to us by God’s grace. Process the spiritual classified information on your knees in prayer that divine intervention may may be made manifest to help the person in need. Hold onto it within yourself strictly until the appointed time of praise worthy testimony of divine intervention of God in the life of the person.
Prayer: O Lord grant me the grace to bring before You, the divine vision and privilege information that I received from you in prayer for your guidance and direction so that the purpose of it will be fulfilled for your glory in Jesus name. Empower me, Heavenly Father, to manage and preserve the privilege information that I received through your grace for the intended purposes in Jesus name, Amen.
