We are example setters


1 Timothy 4 –

As sons and daughters of the Most High GOD and brothers and sisters of CHRIST JESUS. We are to be example setters; leaders not followers. Did you know that just by our character and integrity we could win more souls for JESUS than we do? We don’t have to bible beat or convict people of being sinners. We should draw people to us with our pure love; let them see how we love JESUS and that it’s real. Eventually, you will find that open passage where you could ask an individual have they ever thought about salvation and what it means to them. Or, maybe someone will eventually come to you and ask why are you the way you are and you can tell them about the love JESUS has for you and share your testimony of salvation with them. Look, it’s time this very second that we stop playing church and get real. Lives are at stake; some of our brothers and sisters are so selfish with salvation that they are actually bidding for JESUS to come right now. Why would you want JESUS to come now when you still have family members on the way to hell; neighbors; school mates; co-workers and the drug addicts and alcoholics that you pass by each and everyday? The Holy Spirit has already revealed that many of our brothers and sisters in CHRIST JESUS will depart / fall away / walk away from the faith of JESUS. They will give into deceiving demonic spirits and demonic doctrines. These doctrines have been around for many centuries and doing very well because there is too much playing going on in the church. We are not doing what we are commanded to do according to the Word of GOD. I have heard with my own ears Farrakhan with the black Muslims blaspheme the Holy Spirit and yet there are many in the body of CHRIST who look at him as a hero. I have heard various lies about JESUS being married to Mary of Magdala and having children. I first heard this from a friend of mine and I set him straight; the name Jesus is not a unique name. There were many men given that name just as there are many men in the Hispanic culture given that name. So if Mary of Magdala was married and had children; her husband could have been named Jesus. But don’t get it twisted it was not JESUS the CHRIST. And to think that this lie had even begun to circulate within church buildings from pulpits; how ignorant. One minute it’s being said from the pulpit that JESUS is the only way to salvation and that HE alone is GOD. The next it’s being said out of the same mouth that HE was not a virgin, that HE was a drunkard, that HE was just a prophet and good teacher. You are a hypocrite and your own conscience has been branded with a hot iron. There are some faiths who are teaching not to marry; well if you don’t marry than you are committing fornication. What about those faiths that teaches not to eat certain foods because they are forbidden by GOD. Keep up my brothers and sisters; that was in the Old Testament. The New Testament dealt with that very well with Peter.  In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. And a voice came to him,“Rise, Peter; kill and eat.”  But Peter said, “Not so, LORD! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.” And the voice spoke to him again the second time,“What GOD has cleansed you must not call common,”Acts 10:12 – 15. In this very scripture we see that nothing is off limits; there are cultures that eat roaches, worms, flies, rats, mice, dogs, cats, elephants, hippopotamus and so on. Just like you maybe saying yuck to their way of eating; I’m certain in other cultures they are saying yuck to our way of eating chicken, cows, pigs (every single part of a pig) and so on. Nothing is off limits and all we have to do is go to another country and find out for ourselves. Don’t ask what it is just pray and give thanks to the FATHER for the provision in JESUS name and enjoy. After you have enjoyed your meal than you may want to know what you have eaten. You see the LORD GOD has said that every creature that HE has created is good and nothing is to be refused. However, because of some of our weak intelligence in the Word of GOD and lack of faith we do have away of escape. I know and am convinced by the LORD JESUS that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. Yet if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one for whom CHRIST died. Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil; for the kingdom of GOD is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves CHRIST in these things is acceptable to GOD and approved by men. Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another. Do not destroy the work of GOD for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense. It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak. Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before GOD. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin, Romans 14:14-23. Again, all food is good but if we have a sister or brother who is not free in their walk of faith to eat that food; than we are not to eat it in their presence. Eat something else; this is being loving and understanding. It’s okay if at that moment they don’t understand that the LORD GOD has sanctified the food because of prayer and at that time; it’s not the time to make a federal case of it. There will be another time when together you can read that scripture and talk about it but the LORD GOD’s Word is never up for debate. Instruct each other about the Word of GOD be a good minister of CHRIST JESUS. The Word is a good doctrine and is not manmade but GOD breathed. The Word is good for food; it builds and nourishes our faith which keeps us strong and healthy so follow the Word. We have a promise of life in CHRIST JESUS that is now and that which will come; so be godly it’s profitable to us. Place your complete trust (100%) in the Living GOD; who is The Savior of all mankind; especially of those of us who believe in JESUS. We are to teach and command the things of CHRIST JESUS. Be as HE is, do as HE did and greater. Be an example to all believers in word, conduct, love, spirit, faith and purity. Read your Word everyday; we are commanded to give attention to the Word of GOD. Advise in the teaching of the Word of GOD. If you have a gift from the LORD GOD do not neglect what has been given to you. Do not pimp your gift out. Meditate on the things of GOD; give yourself entirely over to HIM and the gift given to you. Progress in JESUS that it maybe evident to all. Observe yourself and give careful attention to the Word of GOD. Continue in what pleases the LORD GOD; in doing this we save ourselves and those who will hear us.  http://about.me/amfbministry
