“Exposed II” Pulpit Predators

  Sounds like something horrible and in this case you’re correct.  Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Preachers, and Teachers, each of these has something in common with the rest of the body.  Each are seceptable to demonic influence, oppression, depression, and or possession.                         

     Apostles, a greek word, actually meant in the Hebrew language a sent one who is an emmisary, one who is supposed to be the exact likeness of Jesus Christ, authorized to act in His stead with the same power and influence.  Apostles are supposed to show forth the very same love, charater, and nature of God, but in this new Apostolic movement, pride has entered in and they think their titles, entitle them to be something they were never meant to be.  They walk around in pride, a pride that crept up on them so slow, they never saw it and they still don’t.  They want to be served and recognised as the ultimate authority in today’s church, and what they say goes and anyone who disagrees with them is their enemy.  Discernemnt generally shows you, they have been overtaken by the Jezebel or Leviathon spirit, inflicting this same self-serving spirit on their fold.  These particular Apostles have a tendency to mix truth with falicy, the food they feed their flock is poisoned.  They are true Judus’s, leading their flock straight to the gates of hell for the slaughter and their disciples are more the servant of hell than they are.

     Prophets, one who was intended to speak God’s words and God’s truth, in it’s fullness.  No where in God’s Word does it say a prophet has the right to charge for a word from God.  In fact, Gehazi, Elish’a understudy was fully repremanded for taking goods that Elisha turned down for a word from God that he gave.  Prophets are also called to give blessings and warnings, but they don’t, for reasons I can’t begin to fathom.  Being a prophet and hearing God and what a prophet says to individuals, I noticed they would give them the good news or upcoming blessings, but witheld the warnings.  When I asked these prophets why they weren’t telling them the whole thing, I was told that it was discretionary wisdom, as the person wasn’t ready to receive the warning.  My question with that, was am I hearing everything you are, yet you choose not to telling the whole truth?  Could it be their interests are the need to be liked and the possible financial blessings that come from that.  That in and of itself is wrong as it shows a denial of trust for God to supply all their needs, whether financial or fulfilling the empty voids.

     Evangelists, these are those who God sends out to remind us of the simples truths of God’s good news of redemption.  They for the most part, re-establish the excitement of our salvation in reminding us of the preciousness of God’s gift of His love through His son’s atonement.  At the same time, they are to bring the congregation back to a sober mind, reminding them, each has a call on their lives to go and preach the gospel of the good news to the world and every living creature in it.  They unfortunately drive or fly great distances, sometimes at their own expense, leaving them with a need for financial renumeration.  They try to get everyone so excited with portions of the good news that when it comes time for the offering, people are blindly giving, instead of seeking God.  This effect is true all the way around, they forget to point us in the right direction, with all things, seek God.  They play on people emotions for the greater offerings, while leaving weightier measures out of the message.  This also shows a lack of trust in God to supply their needs, some have even been known to spend at much as 15 minutes on a message and 30 + minutes on the asking for the offering.

     Preachers, these are called to teach truth and even bring forth revelations of God’s Word for the better understanding, in accordance with God’s design for that particular flock.  Preachers have a saying, if it’s spoken of or pointed out 2 or more times in the Bible, then it’s a preach or sermon.  The problem with this, to many have for years leaned to their own understanding about God’s Word, this understanding has led to much misinterpretation and presentation of God’s Word.  This leaning to an understanding void of God’s wisdom, truth, and revelation, leads to a corrupt and amoral teaching.  God’s Word say that the preachers are more responsible for truth and held accountable for just that.  This is a statement worth remembering, because there is more to it that will be presented later in this note.

     Teachers, these are the revelators, those who dig deep for that pearl, the gift of revelation regarding God’s Word that will help the body to have a better and deeper understanding of God’s character, nature, and ways.  Knowledge can either promote or destroy, dependant on the source.  With today’s ability and availabilty to search the internet and get all kinds of information, it is more dangerous to do so than search God’s Word, seek God’s heart, and look back through Jewish history, traditions, and rituals.  How easily we can be misled by something that sounds so good, but in truth ahs no truthful bearing on the revelation from God’s Word.  God’s Word tells us to study to show ourselves approved unto God and not man, if we’re not seeking God for our information, for whom do we seek approval and from whom?

     The body, there are many facets to a diamond or other such shiny high priced gems and God called us all to be gems for His use.  Who is doing the polishing on these gems, is it us, leaning to oour understanding or is it God.  If you’ve ever been rubbed raw by a gritty surface, it hurts, but it also heals, God uses the sandpaper of His choice to smooth the rough edges or polish our facets.  How can we possibly know this unless we study God’s Word, how can we know when we’re not being taught truth if we don’t study.  How can we know hidden truths without discernment, how can we know God’s wisdom for our lives if we’re not seeking God and asking for His wisdom?  How can we know truth, God’s truth, if we don’t seek the Holy Spirit, who brings to us the spirit of truth and none of it will be laced with lies, untruths, or man’s wromgful interpretations.  Going back to the earlier statement about responsibility, though Pastors, preachers are held in higher accountability and responsibility for preaching truth, we hold individually, just as much responsibility to know God’s truth.  They’re held in higher accountability simply because of the number of lives they effect with their words and teachings.

     All in all, everyone in one way or another is suggestive in nature and potentially open to the influence of the demonic, leaving us in a position of vulnerability for the lack of trust and obedience to God’s Word, and even those who wish to speak into our lives, but aren’t hearing or seeing from God.  Matthew 6:33 gives it to us very plainly, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and the things of God will be given according to God’s promises.  Matthew 4:4 says; man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.  Matthew 4:7 says, do not tempt God with foolishness, in other words, our understanding.  Matthew 4:10 tells us worship the Lord thy God and serve Him only, the 4 verses are a strong mainstay and a foundation of discernment. 

Please stop letting man’s ideas and ideals rule your lives, you never know their intent or who’s behind it.  Never forget, this is not true of all of God’s ordained, do not hold all at bay, but seek God, He will let you know, whom He has entrusted.  God bless, seek God!
