SPIRITUAL / LEADERSHIP BLINDNESS

The #1 problem in Christendom today IS the “church with a pastor” SYSTEM. It is not what Father set up. It is no where in Scripture. It is totally man made which is why it will NEVER get saints to the place Father wants them to go.

The #2 problem: The self appointed leadership DON’T KNOW where TO lead the saints nor what the primary purpose of Father IS, in HIS saints. In other words, the so called leaders DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE MINISTRY IS ALL ABOUT.

Impact on the community; getting people healed; casting out devils; and being a strong witness IS NOT the primary goal Father had in mind for the so called “five fold ministry”. Depending on what meaning you give to “living the faith”, it could be included in this list too.

IF THE LEADERSHIP DOES NOT KNOW WHERE NOR HOW TO LEAD THE SAINTS, IT STANDS TO REASON THAT THE SAINTS THAT THEY LEAD DON’T KNOW EITHER.

THIS IS CLASSIC “BLIND LEADING THE BLIND”.

The biggest reason for this BLINDNESS is the deception of professing saints by their own SINFUL / WICKED FLESH tricking them into thinking that their “THOUGHTS and INTERPRETATIONS” are spiritual, when they are purely human / fleshly / earthly / WORLDLY.

The flesh can only deal with what is OUTWARD. Professing leadership as well as their followers / congregations are totally focused on the “exciting” OUTWARD things that Lord Jesus did and said while IGNORING or REMAINING IGNORANT of the SPIRIT BEHIND OR UNDERNEATH those things.

They are focused on the LETTER rather than the SPIRIT and don’t even recognize it. Some evidences:

-In Scripture, “church” is people; in our day “church” is a building.
-In Scripture, saints are the HOUSE OF GOD; in our day the building is the “HOUSE OF GOD”.
-In Scripture, the focus is LIFESTYLE OF SAINTS EVERYDAY; in our day, the focus is “churches”, “church services” and leadership positions.
-Scripture focuses on Holy Spirit Leadership while today’s “church” system focuses on human leadership.
-Scripture focuses on unity of ALL SAINTS, while today’s “church” system focuses on individual congregations unity.
-Lord Jesus led BY THE SPIRIT with MEEKNESS AND HUMILITY, while today’s self appointed leaders lead IN FLESH with AUTHORITATIVE ARROGANCE AND PRIDE.

Their is SO MUCH MORE.

CONSIDER what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. (2 Timothy 2:7)

THE LORD’S DAY; EVERY DAY! REJOICE! BE THANKFUL!

Every day is a day that our Lord makes. Doesn’t that make every day, “the Lord’s Day”? Who should know this better than His little born again children? We’ll always be little children to Him, you know. This is why we’re to rejoice and be glad every day, less we be found complaining against our Father.

1 Thessalonians 5  24Faithful and utterly trustworthy is He Who is calling us to Himself; Who also will fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping us.

28The undeserved and unearned favor and blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us all. So be it.

Proverbs 20 11Even a child is known by what he does, whether what he does is pure and right or not.

With us saints, there are always missing facts and surprises; but that is never the case with our God, Father and Lord.

Isaiah 46 9Earnestly remember the former things, which I did in the past; for I AM God, and there is no one else; I AM God, and there is none like Me,

10Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose,

Proverbs 28 14Blessed, happy, fortunate, and to be envied are saints who reverently, thankfully and worshipfully fear the Lord at all times regardless of circumstances

Think over these things I am saying; understand them and grasp their application, for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything.   (2Timothy 2:7)

Wish to Boast?

To my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, God’s dear saints, whose hearts hunger and thirst for the Truth, that IS our Lord Jesus Christ,

Much grace, loads of mercy and abundance of peace to all of us today, from our God, Father and Lord Jesus Christ who lives inside each of us in the Person of His Holy Spirit and is always with us where ever we are, 24/7.

No thought, no intention, no words and no deeds go unnoticed by Him. We are never alone, as He promised. He Loves us; He knows us; He understands us; and He will never let go of us. He will bring us home to glory with Himself.

What are we bragging about these days? What is it that we’re so proud of these days? What is it that makes us crack that huge smile when someone notices or finds out? What is it that we just can’t wait to tell someone? What is it that we just can’t get enough of? What is it that we never get tired of doing? What is it that we talk about more than anything else? What is it that gives us our greatest joy?

More than likely, the first thing that came to our minds as we read each question is the true answer. Everything from our degrees, careers and status to our children, social associations and possessions proudly steps up to the plate to be the answer to these questions.

Jeremiah 9:
23 This is what the Lord says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches.
24 But, those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!

If anyone can put a right perspective on a matter, no one can do it better than our Loving God and Father, Who IS and Who IS Love and always Has Been. Unlike us, our God and Father never changes. He knows, that He IS right whether any one believes Him or not; whether anyone likes what He says or not. YES! He is indeed ALL THAT!

Think over these things I am saying; understand them and grasp their application, for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything. (2 Timothy 2:7)

Your servant for Jesus’ sake,

SIMPLE ADMONITION

By faith, we know that the Son of man; our Lord Jesus Christ, IS going to appear to Israel and the world at our God and Father’s appointed time; and we saints, the Lord’s Body is going to appear with Him in glory (Colossians 3:4).

Therefore; because His appearing with us is going to happen, we saints should deprive our members of power; put to death our members; our human body along with its evil, wicked, mean and sinful human nature, which will fight the Holy Spirit for control of us for as long as we are on the earth in human bodies: (Colossians 3:5)

Because of the totally depraved state of our evil, wicked, mean and sinful human nature, it is impossible for it to accept defeat and give up its fight with the Holy Spirit for control of us. It will continue this fight until we leave our earthly house, which is our body. It will continue to be more deceitful than anything else that we know of; desperately and totally wicked; and impossible for us to know and keep up with, apart from total dependence on the Holy Spirit inside us (Jeremiah 17:9).

Fornication, which is any sexual activity outside of the God of the Bible’s definition of marriage (So that there is absolutely no confusion, the God of the Bible made “male and female” to be husband and wife, which was a mystery hidden in God until He revealed that what He had in mind when He put man and woman together as husband and wife, was His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ and His bride, the Church [Ephesians 5:32]) ,

Uncleanness, which is lust and impure motives, depraved and vile passion, evil desire for that which is forbidden, and covetousness or greedy desire to have more, all of which is the exact same thing as idolatry or worshiping false gods.

Our focus, as true children of God, is not to be on these things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are only temporary; but the things which we cannot see now, except with our eyes of faith, will never ever end. (2 Corinthians 4:18)

Instead, according to our God and Father’s promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, where there will be absolutely nothing but righteousness. (2 Peter 3:13)

Why is it, that doing things the way our God and Father tells us to, just does not appeal to most professing saints? I dare say that it is because most professing saints are NOT true saints OR they are allowing the human body along with its evil, wicked mean and sinful human nature to survive, thrive and control us, instead of depriving it of its power, by giving ourselves wholly to the control of the Holy Spirit of God.

You’ll know that you’re headed in the right direction when the things that seem so great and wonderful to the children of this world, begin to be less and less appealing, attractive and important to you; and our Lord Jesus Himself becomes more and more all that you need in any situation.

BACK TO THE BEGINNING

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. (John 21:25)

 

What the Holy Spirit said here is PROOF that Scripture is NOT a play by play of the LIFE of LORD JESUS or anyone else for that matter.

We can conclude that what is written, in Father’s Mind, is sufficient.
The world’s way of thinking leads MAN to always be looking for something NEW and BETTER / IMPROVED.
This worldly way of thinking, if left to itself by God, would lead to man’s TOTAL ANNIHILATION. (Matthew 24:22)
For those who profess to be children of God IN CHRIST, this worldly way of thinking is called “fleshly” and / or “carnal” minded thinking. Far too many professing saints are UNAWARE that this kind of thinking is ungodly, especially when it comes to the things of God.
Our God and Father / our Lord and Savior says that HE CHANGES “NOT” (Malachi 3:6); that HE is the same YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOR EVER (Hebrews 13:8)
The very Nature of God is ANTI the worlds way of thinking. One of the most ungodly statements a saint could make about God’s way is: “that was then; this is now”. Saints forget that FATHER WAS SATISFIED WITH WHAT HE CREATED FROM THE BEGINNING. We also know that ETERNITY is going to look more like the BEGINNING than what we have now. No one, including animals, will be killing anything to eat.
Father always brought Israel back to the Law of Moses.
When people mentioned present day stuff to Lord Jesus, He said “in the beginning it was not so”.
Saints in Asia were reminded that they had left their FIRST LOVE
SO, unlike worldly minded humans, FATHER DOES NOT FIX WHAT IS NOT BROKE.
This brings me to the main point that the Spirit has put on my heart and mind.
Thirty seven (37) years ago, FATHER, showed me HIS IDEA; HIS CREATION AND HIS EXAMPLE OF KINGDOM LIVING ON EARTH on the pages of Scripture.
Acts 2:40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”
41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
AND
Acts 4:32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common.
33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.
34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold,
35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.
THERE SHOULDN’T BE ANY DOUBT IN ANYONE’S MIND THAT SUCH AS THIS IS HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE.
THIS IS INDEED THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE LIVES OF TOTALLY COMMITTED SAINTS.
THIS GLORIOUS TESTIMONY to our God, Father and Lord Jesus has not been seen for quite some time (over 1700 years). For this period of time, the world has observed the GREAT FALLING AWAY which is characterized by THE LOVE OF MANY GROWN COLD.
Even though the FOUNDATION CHURCH had thousands of “members”, they operated as ONE MAN because it was the mind of Christ through the Spirit of Christ that was actually in operation. THIS CHURCH had individual and whole body of Christ testimony to Christ.
The so called CHURCH that has been in view for over 1700 years has the world’s mentality “every man for himself and God for us all”. There are many individual saints with a good individual testimony, BUT, the WHOLE BODY OF CHRIST testimony is non existent. All that the world sees today are thousands and thousands of organizations called “churches”; some small and some MEGA, but all are SELF SUSTAINING AND AUTONOMOUS: A TESTIMONY TO THEIR LEADERS.
What really breaks Father and Lord Jesus’ heart is that SO MANY who claim to love HIM say that “HIS IDEA; HIS CREATION AND HIS EXAMPLE” is NOT for HIS children today.
They don’t even realize that by their words and actions, that they are saying that there is no longer “ONE GOD”; ONE HEAD; ONE SPIRIT AND ONE BODY, but many.
These same people who claim to love HIM, tell me and others that this message is our personal agenda; that Father is “okay” with not being glorified as in the beginning. They act as if Father would only say something ONE TIME and leave it alone. Where did that standard come from?
How many time must the Lord have repeated the same things during His time on Earth?
Look at how many time Scripture repeats how we are to LOVE ONE ANOTHER
Scripture also tells us to keep each other in REMEMBRANCE of certain things.

I for one will continue to say whatever the Spirit leads me to say, as often as He leads me to say it. No amount of insults or child psychology will have any effect. FATHER ALWAYS DRIVES A MESSAGE HOME UNTIL THE TIME THAT HE APPOINTS FOR IT IS UP; THEN COMES HIS JUDGEMENT.

TRUE LEADERSHIP

Mark 8:31
And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

Mark 9:31
For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

Mark 10:34
And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Here is three different times that Lord Jesus told His disciples that He would be killed and rise again the third day. It was not in parables nor in code, but, in plain language.

This should be evidence that no matter how we speak the Word of God or how simple the language it is written in, NO ONE can or will understand with their human mind until Father OPENS their understanding.

Mark 16:9-11
Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.
10 She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, THEY DID NOT BELIEVE.

Mark 16:12-13
12 After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country.
13 And they went and told it to the rest, but THEY DID NOT BELIEVE THEM EITHER.

The first thing that we should note here is that, for some reason, Lord Jesus DID NOT choose to appear to His apostles first. Today, men and women who think that they are Father’s appointed “leadership” would definitely call the apostles “leadership”.

It is also interesting to note that the bulk of the New Testament is also addressed to the saints and NOT “leadership”. The question is: why would Father address letters to saints if they could not understand the letters “without leadership” AS today’s so called leadership seem to think?

THE MOST INTERESTING THING OF NOTE IS that the men who had spent the most time with Lord Jesus and had been told by Lord Jesus at least three times, that He would be killed and rise again, THESE MEN DID NOT BELIEVE.

Mark 16:14
14 Later He appeared to THE ELEVEN as they sat at the table; and He rebuked THEIR UNBELIEF and HARDNESS OF HEART, because THEY DID NOT BELIEVE those who had seen Him after He had risen.

The evidence is in. Father addressed HIS WORD to HIS saints and it is HIS saints’ responsibility to OBEY what Father says to them / us.

ALL TRUE SAINTS of God should remember that Scripture WAS NOT WRITTEN in chapters and verses. When the saints at Ephesus received what we call “the book of Ephesians”, THEY HEARD THAT WHOLE “BOOK” / LETTER AT ONE TIME. We would do well to read these letters in whole ourselves.

Ephesians 4 as we know it, that today’s so called leadership like to use to justify their existence, WAS PART OF THE LETTER WRITTEN TO THE SAINTS. Father is telling the saints about these gifts and their purposes. IT IS NOT instructions on how to set up hierarchical leadership in local assemblies.

As a saint of God and love slave of Lord Jesus, I am led to point out and remind MY BRETHREN of what Father’s Word actually says when RIGHTLY DIVIDED by the Holy Spirit, as oppose to, what men and women who love to have the preeminence, SAY THAT IT SAYS.

When all is said and done, it is the Word of God that will stand and the Word of God SAYS:

For as many as are LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD,

THEY ARE THE SONS OF GOD. (Romans 8:14)

Just prior to the Ephesian Scriptures that “today’s so called leadership” CLAIM for themselves, The Holy Spirit through our brother Paul said:

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord,
beseech YOU (To the SAINTS who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus)
to walk worthy of the calling with which YOU (THE SAINTS) were called,
with all lowliness and gentleness,
with longsuffering,
bearing with one another in love,
endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
ONE BODY and ONE SPIRIT,
just as YOU (THE SAINTS) were called in one hope of YOUR (THE SAINTS) calling;
ONE LORD,
ONE FAITH,
ONE BAPTISM;
ONE GOD and FATHER of ALL,
WHO is above ALL,
and THROUGH ALL,
and IN YOU (THE SAINTS) ALL.

The whole letter is addressed to the saints. In no part of that letter did the Holy Spirit STOP addressing the saints and start addressing “leadership”. The Scriptures above tell us WHO our leadership IS.

Do not be snared by the “fear of man”. Put all of you trust in Father and He will keep you safe.

Consider what I say; and the Lord give you understanding in all things. 2 Timothy 2:7
