I have been a while out watching and observing in the ministry of the Lord. As there are many of us serving in that purpose as a “Watchman” to God (Eze 33:6) to guide and mobilize His ministry of various purpose as closes as unto His will and revelation.
We warned, given advice and share part of the allegiance experiences as to please God for whom the purpose of His promises unto us. We saw many Minister or Lay Preacher who actually preach and share their experiences for the purpose of garner men support and contribution putting God business as a cloak to their worldly inheritance.
They preached and teach with an agenda in their mind. Although in earlier stages it was about conviction and love of God. Later the worldly disease crept in corrupt the very nature of their spiritual essence, that is why our Lord Jesus Christ is so stern and fervent in his rebuked and correction to those Pharisees at large. Even the very elite of God that is so concentrated in the purpose of God when was glorified too much in the praises of men – a point that our Lord Jesus Christ pointed amongst the Priests and Pharisees began to make the Kingdom of Heaven so difficult to get into. This has generated a lot of man-made legalism and tradition (Matt 15:3,5) a huddle to prevent others to go into the Kingdom of God unless there is a small and serving “contribution” as a gateway to admission (Matt 23:13,19). Aren’t our Lord said that the Salvation of the Lord is free?(Rom 3:24; 5:15-16 ; 6:23) There is no attribute and limitation to serve Him when the veil was torn upward down Matt 27:51)to allow a dynamic and interactive communion with God. No longer are we called servant but a friend to God Himself (James 2:23).
That is why the distinguish character of the preacher of “a doer” and “non-doer” (James 1:22,25) is essential to the healthy Body of Christ. A doer encourages and breeds positive spirituality ultimately into the breeding temple ground of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 3:16-17). While on the opposing end the non-doer always incorporate the essence of worldly nature, inhale the flesh and animalism corrupting the nature of mindset conflicting oneself in “sheep clothing as wolf” with the purpose and people of God. This is in pretext that the Preacher way is “anointed” listening to God as in much weightier as if the laws of Moses prevails and pre-destine forever. But the laws was far more refine with much more authority and liberalization of the Spiritual essence that long have priorities us since the Ark of Covenant in representation (Like 4:18). This is only can be done by the redemption of Christ.(2 Cor 1:21) And only in Christ along we are able to embody our spirit with oneness into the Spirit of the Father.
We are “the Ark” now in contain amplification of His holy communion and existing as an anointed personality into the eyes of God.
The eyes of the Non-Doer deceived them in their interaction with non sincerity toward the pasture and fold that they are guiding and directing.(Matt 26:31; John 10:12) They command and control forgetting and adverting against the greatest commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ; “Love the Lord with all your heart and soul and thereafter love your neighbor as yourself”. Their Fruit of the Spirit has deceives themselves as a false prophet. (Matt 13:22; Although their mouth prophesying the holy words but their heart does not aligned into the deeds and revelation of God. Their character and personality even a pleasant handshake, interactive click, body language and divisive association will even “tell their sincerity” to the assembly but to God himself finding that purpose and tested the heart of man especially the one that so served the ministry. (Luke 6:25-26; 2 Peter 2:1-3; 1 John 4:1)
So let us wake up from our sleep and move on with rejuvenate and refresh in God’s value and start focusing on His basic grace. That is the love of God. To do this let us not be partial and used our wisdom as in moving forward the business of God for a profitable purpose (1 Tim 5:21; James 2:4). But rather we expand God territory with much love and oneness contribution of faith and conviction and let the supplication be obedience to the trust and supply by our Almighty God Himself. For naked we come and thereafter naked we will go to meet the Maker(Job 1:21). There is a season for every reason (Eccls 3:1) and purpose our way will never suffice the revelation of God in our ability and gifts.
Therefore let us set no more rules and tradition value (Matt 15:3,6; Mark 7:9,13) to move on in that justified God principals but let us move forward in a more liberated spiritual essence (Romans 8:21, Gal 5:1)) with the directive of the Holy Spirit as he steer to those that is faithful and loyal to Him alone.
Let abandon our fear in serving in the Ministry of God and put forth our decision and limitation in the seed of faith in us. Trusting that His way is higher than us wanting to do good both benefit to Him and us as his children of the Kingdom.
Let look toward the future without looking into the past of our success coveting after it old glory but humble in our application in serving, encouraging and loving one another towards the business of God. Step by steps gaining the favor of God once again (Like 2:52).
Then we will release the faith within and amongst us that germinate and enlighten power of God, called “The light of Christ” in us to shine to man and turning them back to God. Never will it be hidden and shutter in an enclosure of shame. But rise up with much greatness, boldness and confidence in the challenge and walk with God a pilgrim He arrange for us within this training world. (Philippians 2:15-16)
Thru in the end by the crown of glory we shall be judging angel thereafter. Therefore let us preach and be a doer all the perfect way and truth of God. Never slacken in our faith, never forget to share fellowship within ourselves start with “our enemy of household” (Matt 10:36) and choosing to contributing the work of God on same par with our co-worker rather than placing directive for others to do it (John 10:12-13) and getting the glory for our own claimed by paying others to do the deed of God thru us. (1 Cor 1:26-29)
We need to direct other to Christ NOT directing others thru us to Christ. That is heresy and hypocrisy in nature. (Ephesians 2:18-22)
Think about it!
