Ministers of the Spirit vs Ministers of the Flesh
GOD is the only one who sets up leaders in his church, GOD is the only one who sets some in the church first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and diversities of tongues.
And just because you went to some prestigious bible school, seminary school, Catholic school, school of theology, and religious institution to learn about religion from other religious men, that does not mean you were sent by GOD.
Just because you paid thousands of dollars for an education in religion, religious studies, theology 101, and mass communication skills, that does not mean you are sent by GOD or anointed by GOD.
Just because you paid thousands of dollars for the titles of pastor, apostle, doctor, prophet, evangelist, and minister, that does not mean you are sent by GOD, or anointed by GOD.
For carnal religious men give titles away for money, respect of persons, education, and favoritism, but GOD is nothing like them, for when GOD sets some in the church first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and diversities of tongues, then GOD makes sure they are fully mature in the word of GOD, the wisdom of GOD, the truth of GOD, and the revelation knowledge of GOD.
For GOD is not ignorant or foolish as many of your religious leaders are, who raise up men who are immature, unqualified, and lacking the revelation knowledge of GOD in CHRIST JESUS.
GOD does not raise up men based off their status, respect of persons, favoritism, education, how much money they have, how important they seem to be, how well they speak, or how big their church institutions are…………LOL
Brothers and sisters, the word of GOD says GOD gave them to the church, and GOD set them in church, it says nothing about men giving themselves, men raising themselves up, or men paying thousands of dollars to learn about worthless religion from other religious mem……..LOL
(1 Corinthians 12:28-31) And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
(Ephesians 4:10-15) He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Brothers and sisters, what are the high callings of GOD? And how do callings of GOD operate?
It’s so sad to hear preachers preach on those subjects because when they do they separate themselves from the Spirit of God and preach the carnal things. And they have preached it in such a way that we have a world full of self-appointed leaders leading the masses into captivity and religious slavery.
Elihu puts it this way in (Job 32:20-22) I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.
Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.
For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
Brothers and sisters, sadly I must say the “churches” have become gatherings that are leading people into the captivity of religious slavery, in droves.
I don’t say that lightly or harshly, but with humbleness.
The masses of people today are respecters of people and respecters of the flattering titles, given because of the flash and style of the person speaking.
People regard people based on popularity, upon fancy clothes, multitudes of books, smooth words, People regard people based on gender, on ethnicity and so on and so on.
While the Poor man is given no honor, the weak things are despised and the base things are not heard which is who God has chosen to be rich in faith and rich in His word and rich in speaking His word and who God has chosen to operate the Gifts through.
They are those known of God and despised by man, They know God by His word and can testify of Jesus through the scriptures and the word is confirmed through the operation of the Spirit in their lives.
(1 Corinthians 1:25-29) Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men are called after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, had God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
(John 3:5-8) JESUS SAYS, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
The wind blows where it wants to blow, and you hear the sound of the wind, but cannot tell where it comes from, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
(John 6:44-45) JESUS SAYS, No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him to me: and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
(Galatians 1:11-12) But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it by man, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
(1 John 2:25-27) And this is the promise that JESUS has promised us, even eternal life.
These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
But the anointing which you have received of JESUS abides in you, and you do not need that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in JESUS.
Brothers and sisters, this is the real anointing that comes from GOD alone, this is the real anointing which GOD himself raises up, teaches, ordains, anoints, sets up in the church, and gives to the true church of JESUS CHRIST freely.
And you cannot buy the anointing of GOD like you can buy the titles of pastor, prophet, apostle, evangelist, and teacher, because they are not for sale like many of your religious leaders are for sale.
Now days you can get a religious title out the Cracker Jack box, but you have to get the anointing of GOD from GOD himself, and it’s going to cost you all of you, your whole life.
(Luke 14:33) JESUS SAYS, So likewise, whosoever he be of you that does not forsake all that he has, he cannot be my disciple.
(Luke 14:27-33) JESUS SAYS, For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first, and count the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Lest haply, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first, and consult whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand?
Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an ambassador , and desires conditions of peace.
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that does not forsake all that he has, he cannot be my disciple.
