Many people, especially preachers of the Word of God are on their own making sure that the World does not come to an end yet.
Why and how you may ask? The Bible made it clear that Jesus Christ will not return until the Gospel is preached to ALL corners of the Earth (Matthew 24:14), so instead of preaching the Gospel according to Jesus Christ, they are busy preaching the gospel according to their own personal ministry. ~ Matthew 24:14 (NKJV)
Yes according to their own ministry. Most preachers have gone out of the original plans of God through Jesus Christ, as all they care about now is their own ministry, how big their ministry is, how much of money and in monetary terms their ministry has acquired, all the properties they have acquired and etc.
This is why you see preachers harping on about their ministry more than the Word of God through Christ Jesus. They become so money conscious, self-obsessed, affluence attached, and as usual, find places in the Bible to justify their desires.
The Word of God is Light!
What can you say about a preacher who in more than 3 months of ‘ministering’ in his edifice – Church, has never made a single Alter call, to present the opportunity for people who are yearning to come back to God to do so?
What then can we say about the ‘natural eye service’ that has over run the activities of the Church? What can we say about self-made and self-style preachers who never calls for an Alter Call once there are dignitaries or highly placed persons or government representatives or personnel in their Church service?
These same preachers are so eager to make ‘bloated’ Alter calls once they see that there are people in the service who they feel are of lesser class, because they need God more than the government.
These have resulted to spiritual and psychological manipulation of people’s minds and making them believe that Alter call is only meant for “people they call” the down trodden, the less privileged, the weak, the sinner (because they do not pull in thousand and millions in monetary terms), the sick (because they will permanently depend on the miracles performed by the demi gods all the days of their church life), the yahoozes, because they seek for miracles on their exploits. The list is endless.
But then Jesus Christ will surely return someday, and I do hope He will not find you wanting. It is not just meant for the pastors and teachers of the Word, but for each and every one of us, to preach the Gospel in and out of season. To the rich and poor and to every human on the surface of the Earth.
From all indications, the preachers and every one of us that have taken Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal saviour have gone far off from the original plans of God.
In our days, there are even more preachers and churches than the audience, and each preacher is busy preaching and teaching their own doctrine to their followers and also busy condemning other ministers whom they feel are their rivalries. ONLY GOD knows why there should be rivalries in the Church of God.
Always remember that our mandate directly from God is: “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” ~ 2 Timothy 4:2 (NKJV)
Make your mark today and let God bless you. Do not be an obstacle to the will of God.
