(JUST DOING MY JOB!!)
SCRIPTURE - Ezek 33:2-4 FEBRUARY, 2005
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people
of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
SUBJECT - JUST DOING MY JOB
If you have been following this ministry's progression over the years, and have taken notice to some of the messages that I have produced, you have probably thought to yourself, 'Why is he talking about all of this stuff about politicians, who we vote for, and especially, preachers? He should be about spreading the gospel, and trying to get people saved, and not running people away from the Church?'
Well, this is true, I should be spreading the gospel, and presenting the love of God, to all of mankind. And, that is exactly what I am doing. I am spreading the gospel, by telling everyone the 'good news.' Also, I am showing the love of God, by letting everyone know that He loves them.
The problem with what you are seeing, and reading, is that you don't understand just what it means to preach the gospel, and all of the intricacies that go in to preaching the 'good news.'
By the time I get through, you should have a clear understanding of just what it is that I, and every other person, that is a man, or woman of God, should be doing. Especially if they are in the position of an evangelist, pastor, or bishop.
In order to understand just what it is that I am doing, look at the subject scripture text. What do you get from it???
What it is saying, is that God, commands the people to choose someone, to act as a watchman, to insure their safety. After all, that is the job of the watchman, protecting the people from danger. A person that is a watchman, bears a great responsibility. The safety, and lives of all of the people, he is charged with, to protect, depends entirely on him. His alertness, and response to certain situations, can spell disaster, if he fails to function the right way.
The way God describes it in this particular passage (read the entire passage down to verse 9, for this particular subject), 'When I bring the sword upon a land'
, He is saying, a time will come, when He will bring the sword (trouble, cursing, war, sickness, disease, disaster and the like), to the land, the watchman, has to be able to recognize the problem, and warn the people, that the problem they are experiencing, are the result of their wickedness, and if they don't repent, they will perish.
This brings up the real problem with our nation, and communities today.
The watchman is supposed to be a man of God, who is so in tune with God, that he can tell the difference between the natural problems that crop up from time to time, and attacks of, the devil, and the wrath of God being poured out on the people.
Unfortunately for us to day, there are not many preachers in our society that fit the bill as being, 1. knowledgeable of God and His ways, and 2. if they are seeing it, they don't believe it is anything more than the results of, guess who??? The Republicans.
Time and again, I hear preachers, and I am talking about preachers that seem to have no idea as to what is going on, except to follow what the ungodly believe, and that is, it is someone else's fault, and it has to be the Republicans, and the 'religious right.'
First, these, as Jesus Christ once said they are, 'they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. [Mat 15:14]
You see, if the watchman did not warn the people (to repent), two things would happen, the people would die in their sin, and the watchman (pastor, evangelist, or bishop) would be held accountable, to God, for every soul that is lost because of their failure to do what God called for them to do.
When these blind preachers, are called on, to tell the people what they think the problem is, it is like a broken record, 'the Republicans.'
Let me tell you something here, blaming the Republicans, for something that God is doing, is tantamount to blasphemy. How?? Because you are taking something that God is doing, and attributing it to man.
You see, 2 Pet 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
What we are being told here is that God, will allow things to happen to us, so that we will, in our trouble, turn to Him, repent, and be delivered. However, when the 'Republicans' are blamed, then the people feel that all they have to do, is get rid of them, and things will be all right. There is no need to repent, because they aren't doing anything wrong.
And, as a result, when you hear someone like me, saying that the problem is not the Republicans, and, in a lot of instances, it is not the Democrats, it is these blind preachers, that are the problem.
Because when these Democrats come in to the house of God, and are allowed to get in to the pulpit (Holy Ground), and tell God's people what the problem is, this is letting the congregation that the politician knows more about the problem than the preacher does. Remember, it is not the preacher that came up with blaming the Republicans, and the 'Religious right', it is, in effect the devil.
Why do I say that?? Because any action that is taken, by any person, that tends to lead people away from God, and repentance, is spawned by the devil.
Now, when you hear me, and other preachers to turn from the wickness that you are doing, you are hearing from a watchman, that 1. Knows God, and His ways, and 2. Realizes what is really going on, and is doing all that I can do, to warn you, to turn from your wicked ways, before it is too late.
It is my job, to spread the gospel (good news), and the love of God, and that is what I am doing.
The good news is, that 1. you have a God that loves you, and He is sending people out to warn you that trouble is at the door, and you need to repent, so that you can be delivered before you are eternally lost. 2. If God didn't love you, then He would do nothing to help you see the light, so that you can get saved. He would let you die in your ignorance.
Now as for these preachers that are not doing what they are suposed to do, God has a warning for them
Further down in the passage of scripture in Ezekiel, God says, if the Evangelist, pastor or bishop, sees the trouble, and does not warn the people, then the people will die in their sin, lose their souls to hell, and then these pastors, evangelists and bishops, will suffer the same fate, because they didn't warn the people.
If you will notice, these preachers are usually busy, making themselves look good in their communities. They are too involved with the pleasures of this life, to risk upsetting their followers. The way they figure is, they can lie to you, and attack anyone that dares to challenge them, so they can maintain their influence over you.
As I mentioned earlier, all they are, are the servants of the devil. 2Cor 11:14-15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
That's right, these preachers, are really ministers, not of God, but of the devil.
Anytime a person is attacking some other minister, who is
sent by God, to warn you of the impending judgment that is coming, and is even now, in this nation, then they are not operating in God's behalf, but rather, the devil's.
In the black community, they are thriving. They have the popularity, and the power. Whatever they say, the people eat it up. It makes no difference if you can show them in the bible that the preacher is wrong. The people will say that because their particular preacher said it, that is what they will believe. That, my friend, is power.
In some aspects, that is the same problem, Jesus faced, when He walked this earth. It wasn't, the sinners He had the biggest problems with. It was the religious leaders.
They had set up their little religious cults, and did everything they could, to keep the people, under their control. And when Jesus came on the scene, and started revealing to the people, what these men were doing, they started plotting on how to get rid of Him.
It is no different today. God sends His servants, His true servants, out to tell the people the truth about what is going on, and to reveal these false preachers for what they really are, and fearing the loss of their control over you, they start plotting on how to get rid of us.
These preachers have so poisoned the minds of the community, that when they (the people) are faced with accepting what we say, versus what these false preachers say, the people would rather suffer, than change. Just like these preachers want you to.
They don't care about you, you are just a means to an end. That end, is control. What I am talking about, is tantamount to slavery. These preachers are the devil's overseers. They say and do just what he tells them to. And you are being led to the slaughter.
But, not without a challenge from me.
People wonder why I say the things I do. It is because I love Jesus Christ, and Christ has told me to preach the gospel. All of it.
He has told me not to compromise with evil. These preachers have. They won't tell you the truth for one primary reason, and that is, their pride.
Imagine if Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton, suddenly came out one day and told you, that you need to start supporting the Republican party, because they were closer to being in line with the things God says are right, what would you do??? Most of you would turn from them, and call them sell outs and traitors. They know that, so, they won't do it. Their pride, is worth more to them, than your eternal soul.
But, here I am, saying, I don't care how you feel about me, God loves you, and I do too, And as long as God gives me the strength, I am going to continue to do my job, Just like Jesus did, all the way to the end.
