A MEASURE OF CALLING

A MEASURE OF  CALLING TO MINISTRY

WELCOME TO ALL, AND LOVE TO EVERYONE.  ANOTHER SERIOUS SUBJECT, THIS TIME GETTING DOWN TO BASICS AND NECESSITIES.  THE BOTTOM OF WHERE THE FAILURE LIES, AND INDICTMENT OF THE SPIRITUAL LEADERS IN TODAYS WORLD.  THE SPIRITUAL FAILURE OF THIS NATION, HAS TO BE LOOKED AT, IN AN HONEST WAY, NOT ACCORDING TO 'MAN'S'  IDEOLOGY AND ACCEPTANCE, BUT BY THE ADMONITION AND INSTRUCTION OF THE WORDS OF SCRIPTURE.  THE VERY FIRST PART OF THIS SPECIAL 'CALL' IS, THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.

IT IS NOT A 'CAREER', NOR ANYTHING OF THE SORT.  IT IS A DECISION BASED ON THE HEART;  THE FIRES OF THE 'HOLY SPIRIT' THAT MOVES A MAN OR WOMAN, TO TURN THEIR LIFE OVER TO A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PARADIGM, FROM WHERE THEY ARE.   A TRUE 'CALLING' DEMANDS A  LIFE OF SACRIFICE, A LIFE OF GIVING,  A LIFE OF SOLITUDE, MUCH DAILY PRAYER.  FULL SUBMISSION TO THE ALMIGHTY FATHER AND HIS COMMANDMENTS,   A LIFE OF SERVITUDE, AND FORFEITURE OF THE 'SELFIST MIND'.   

IT IS THE PRIMARY 'WORK' OF THE CHURCH, THE HEART OF ANY CHURCH;  IS TO ''CONVERT'' THE WORLD TO THE ALMIGHTY FATHER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.  THE CHURCH IS NOT A PLACE OF ENTERTAINMENT, NOR JUST A PUBLIC SERVICE IN A COMMUNITY, IF--IF THAT HAS BECOME ITS ROLE, ITS BETTER OFF TO CHANGE ITS NAME AND ITS OFFICE, AS IT NO LONGER QUALIFIES AS A 'CHURCH'.

BIBLE COLLEGE DID NOT EXIST, WAS NEVER REQUIRED IN THE DAYS OF THE APOSTLES,  IT WAS SUBMISSION TO THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,  LOVE FOR, AND FOLLOWING OF MESSIAH, HIS COMMANDS, AND THE WHOLEHEARTED  'GIVING OF THEIR LIVES'  TO TAKE THE FULL GOSPEL MESSAGE TO THE LOST CHILDREN OF THE NATIONS. 

EVIDENCE WAS CLEARLY SEEN BY OTHERS OF THEIR FAITH AND DEVOTION REGARDLESS OF THE 'COST' TO THEIR OWN LIVES, WHETHER PHYSICALLY OR EMOTIONALLY.  THEY SPENT TIME FASTING, IN DEEP PRAYER  AND FELLOWSHIP THEY WERE FILLED WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF THE ALMIGHTY, PREPARING TO LEAVE THE COMFORTS OF THEIR HOME, FOR WHATEVER WAS TO FACE THEM IN THE FUTURE.  THEY HAD NO BIBLES THEN, A FEW HAD SOME COPIES OF CERTAIN WRITTEN PAGES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.  THEIR FAITH AND COMMITMENT WAS BUILT UPON AND ATTAINED BY A TOTAL SUBMISSION TO AN ONGOING  PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ALMIGHTY FATHER AND MESSIAH.  IT WAS A TOTAL WALK ''OF FAITH'', THEY HAD NO MONEY, NO CONVENIENCES, JUST THE CLOTHES ON THEIR BACKS.  IT WAS A FULL GIVING OF THEIR LIVES TO DEPEND ON, AND LIVE IN THE CARE OF THE ALMIGHTY FATHER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. 

TODAY IS SO MUCH DIFFERENT,   MUCH IS EXPECTED BY THE 'ONE WHO DECIDES TO 'HEED THE CALL'.   FOR MANY IT IS DECIDED TO ATTEND A BIBLE COLLEGE.  WHICH IN MOST CASES AFTER SPENDING SEVERAL YEARS IN THAT REALM,  THE STUDENT FINDS THE 'FIRES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT' HAVE BEEN QUENCHED BY THE RIGORS OF THE CLASSES AND PROFESSORS.  ALONG WITH THE BIBLE STUDIES, OTHER SUBJECTS ARE REQUIRED INCLUDING THE ''FAITHLESS PHILOSOPHIES AND PSYCHOLOGY NONSENSE, THAT DISTORTS THE MEANING OF A 'CALLED' OUT LIFE.  THE TEACHINGS OF TRADITION AND  'MEN' NEVER HAVE A GOOD RESULT.  SADLY, THE SCRIPTURES  AND RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR CREATOR, ARE NOT THE FOCUS, IN MOST CASES. AND IF A STUDENT FULFILLS THE PROCESS, BY THE TIME HE IS AT THE PULPIT, HIS MIND IS SET ON FOLLOWING THE FORMULAS AND PATTERNS OF 'PREACHING' HE HAS BEEN TAUGHT, RATHER THAN ALLOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TAKE THE LEAD IN ALL THINGS.  THE 'POWERS' OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE LAID ASIDE FOR WHAT HE LEARNED, IN A SCHOOL, TAUGHT BY COMPROMISED MEN; NOT WHAT THE ALMIGHTY FATHER HAD 'CALLED HIM TO DO'' 

IT IS A TOUGH THING TO LOOK AT THIS SUBJECT MATTER;  IN HONESTY AND WITHOUT BIAS.  BUT THIS REPETITIVE PRACTICE FOR YEARS,  HAS BECOME A REAL MEASURING STICK IN THIS NATION, OF THE 'TRAINED'  MEN OF ''RELIGION'' WHO INHERIT THE PULPIT;   MEN OF CAREERS, MOSTLY,  NOT ''MEN OF CALLING'', WHICH HAS CAUSED MOST OF THE SPIRITUAL  DOWNFALL. “Behold, I am against the prophets,” says Yahuah, “who use their tongues and say, ‘He says.’”  Jeremiah 23:31

“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for BAAL--Jeremiah 23:25-27

ALONG WITH REFUSAL TO USE THE RIGHT NAMES FOR FATHER SND MESSIAH; THE REAL GOSPEL HAS BEEN  DISPLACED BY TRADITION,  CONCENTRATION ON 'NUMBERS', PROGRAMS, THE ONE HOUR CHURCH SERVICE,  AND PLEASING  THE CONGREGATION.  DON'T GET MAD AT THE TRUTH;  GET MAD AT THE OCCURANCE AND MAKE SOME CHANGES.  AFTER ALL  PREACHERS, MINISTERS ARE MOSTLY 'VOTED IN OFFICE', AND THE COMMUNITY OF ELDERS, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHOM THEY CHOOSE.  IF THIS COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS WANT CHANGE, THIS IS WHERE IT HAS TO START. AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LADDER.   CHOOSING MEN AND WOMEN OF PROVEN COMMITMENT, SUBMITTED TO THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, WITH WHOLEHEARTED SUBMISSION TO THE ALMIGHTY FATHER AND MESSIAH;  ALREADY GIVEN TO A LIFE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE WORD,  GIVEN TO SERVITUDE AND LOVE FOR OTHERS.  ANYTHING LESS,  IS PROOF THE ELDERS NEED TO LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR ANOTHER CANDIDATE. 

BE AWARE TO LOOK BENEATH THE COVERS, CHECKING ON EVERYTHING  THEY CAN TO INSURE THE PEOPLE CHOSEN WILL BE  QUALIFIED, TO SERVE THE SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP  OF THE COMMUNITY.  ALSO JUST BECAUSE A MAN OR WOMAN MAY HAVE HAD A 'ROUGH BEGINNING' BEFORE THEY TURNED THEIR LIFE OVER TO THE ALMIGHTY FATHER, SHOULD NOT DISQUALIFY ANY INDIVIDUAL. IT IS THE RECENT YEARS THAT REALLY COUNT;  THEIR PROGRESSION IN FAITH, LIFE AND ACTIONS.  DON'T DISCRIMINATE IN ANY WAY. BE FAIR AND PRAYERFULLY ALERT AND COMMITED YOURSELF;  TO SEE A CHURCH THAT WILL GROW IN ALL THINGS THAT WILL BLESS YOUR COMMUNITY;   IN  TRUE SALVATION FOR YOUR PEOPLE.   REPENTANCE AND TRUE REVIVAL. THAT IS YOUR PRIMARY WORK, TO STAND UP FOR COMMITMENT TO SEE SOULS  SAVED.  A REAL ''CALLING TO MINISTRY'' IS ALWAYS PRIORITIZED ON THE SALVATION OF SOULS. NO OTHER AGENDA IS ON THE PLATE.  TODAY WE HAVE MANY ON TV AND THE WEB, THAT CLAIM TO BE TOTALLY CENTERED ON ''SOULS BEING SAVED'', BUT WHO SPEND MOST OF THEIR TIME ''RAISING FUNDS'' TO SUPPORT THEIR MINISTRY, WHICH FOR MOST IS ONLY A CAREER.  

WE NEED PREACHERS OF THE GOSPEL; THE FULL GOSPEL. NOT 'TRAINED PUPPETS, AND PROGRAM' DIRECTORS.  WE NEED PEOPLE WITH ONLY ONE MAJOR CONCERN, ---''SOULS'': GETTING PEOPLE SAVED;   GETTING PEOPLE TO COMMIT TO THE ALMIGHTY FATHER; TO  LIVE A LIFE OF DECENCY AND SHOW  'EVIDENCE' THEY TRULY ARE BORN AGAIN AND ON THEIR WAY TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WANTING TO SEE OTHERS 'BORN AGAIN' AND BLESSED BY OUR PRECIOUS REDEEMER. ITS GOING TO TAKE PREACHING ON SIN,  PREACHING ON HOLINESS,  PREACHING THAT EXPOSES ''HELL' AND ITS AFTERLIFE.  OUR MESSIAH PREACHED MORE ON HELL THAN ANYTHING  ELSE.

ITS GOING TO TAKE MEN AND WOMEN OF REAL PRAYER TIME, WHO SHUT DOWN THE TV AND SPORTS PAGES, WHO SPEND QUALITY PRAYER CLOSET TIME, LOCKED IN WITH THE HOLY FATHER CREATOR AND MESSIAH. WHO LOVE THE ALMIGHTY WITH ALL THEIR HEART AND SOUL, WHO PUT HIM FIRST IN ALL THINGS.   THIS IS: A REAL ''CALLING''__A GIVING UP OF THEIR LIFE AND THEMSELVES TO THE ALMIGHTY.   ANYTHING LESS WILL CHANGE NOTHING. ANYTHING LESS IS JUST MORE OF THE SAME SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS, LIFELESS COMPROMISED  RELIGION THAT BETRAYS THE 'CALLING' AND THE MASTER HIMSELF !   TODAY IT IS ALSO THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ''CALLED'' TO STUDY THE EARLY FAITH OF THE BELIEVERS, FIND OUT WHO THEY WERE AND WHAT THE GOSPEL REALLY WAS; AND HOW IT HAS BEEN CHANGED, BY ROMAN INFLUENCES AND DECREES. A PERSON CALLED HAS TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, AND HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE REAL GOSPEL. NOT JUST A FEW VERSES OR 'ISSUES' OF COMMUNITY.

MATTHEW 16:24--KJV ''Then MESSIAH said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25-'' For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26--'' For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27--''For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.'' 

IN HUMBLE OBEDIENCE
