The Holy Spirit shows us God’s Divine Order. 3b
It’s a great honor to serve God, but a lot of folks love the fancy titles more, than preaching the truth, however, the person that teaches or preaches the Word of God, will face a stricter judgment.
In Acts 20: 19 this is what Apostle Paul had to say on His way to Jerusalem; Serving the Lord with all humility in tears and in the midst of adversity (affliction and trials) which befell me, due to the plots of the Jews [against me], some Ministers / Christians can’t relate to Apostles Paul’s pain and some Ministers can.
Apostles Paul often boasts of his pain and suffering in serving the Lord; today, Ministers boast of the resources that they have accumulated from preaching the Word of God. In the same Chapter Apostle Paul goes further to say in Verse 26-27
Therefore I testify and protest to you on this [our parting] day that I am clean and innocent and not responsible for the blood of any of you.
27 For I never shrank or kept back or fell short from declaring to you the whole purpose and plan and Counsel of God.
I want to zero in on some keywords in the above verses, the first is, he said, he was NOT responsible for the blood of any of you.
If a Minister or preacher does not warn the people or congregation of their Sin, and if the Minister does not preach the full Word of God, and the people perish then the blood of the people is on the Minister.
Also in Ezekiel 3:18, God says the following, If I say to the wicked, You shall surely die, and you do not give him warning or speak to warn the wicked to turn from his wicked way, to save his life, the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand.
All the seeker-friendly Preachers, and those preaching another gospel, Churches that pray to statues, I have said what God has told me to say, and I do not have any one’s blood on my hand.
This stuff (the Word of God) is serious, we have to repent, Money brings comfort in this world, but you are not taking it with you, your wealth will not be with you in the day of Judgement. Jeffery Epstein didn’t take his Money with him, and his end was not good.
Ministers that manipulate the congregation out of Money, in which such practice has NO reference in the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles, you will have to give an account for it on that day. (I will write about Money- tithes, and offering in a future Chapter).
The other part that the Holy Spirit is zeroing in on is Acts 20:27 27 For I never shrank or kept back or fell short from declaring to you the whole purpose and plan and Counsel of God.
Another word for Counsel is guidance, direction, instruction, information, enlightenment. Therefore Ministers are responsible to preach the full Word of God after correctly dividing it.
Allowing the congregation to pray to bow down to and light candles to statues, means the Minister has shrunk or kept back or fell short from declaring to the congregation the whole purpose, plan and Counsel of God, and according to Apostle Paul, blood could be on your hands.
When a person truly preaches the Word of God, there MUST be afflictions and persecution. It comes with teaching the truth.
Therefore if there are no persecutions, I would question the validity of such Minister and Ministry.
Remember Jesus Christ is the Light & Saviour of the World.
Until Next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
