LORD LET IT BEGIN WITH ME

In my study this morning… Hosea 4: 6-9” My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also ignored your children. The more the priests increased, The more they sinned against me; they exchanged their Glory for something disgraceful. They feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness. And it will be: like people, like priests. I will punish both of them for their ways and repay them for their deeds”. MY THOUGHTS….. Can you imagine.. God was Accusing the religious leaders of keeping the people from knowing Him.(“destroyed from lack of knowledge “) … They were supposed to be spiritual leaders, but they themselves became leaders in wrong doing.. ( sounds familiar right? Like some of today’s prosperity preachers, who become the face of Christianity, no wonder the world rejects the Word, even those who don’t know the Lord can see through their false spiritual smokescreen.) It led the people to think,” Hey it must be ok if the priests are doing it.” Bottom line… Spiritual leadership is a heavy responsibility!!! Whether we teach a church Bible study or hold a church office, we can’t take our leadership responsibilities lightly, So what is the definition of Leadership? A true Leader… leads others to God period.. Can you imagine that the priests were actually glad and even encouraged the people to sin!!! Because every time a person brought in a sin offering, the priests received a portion of it!!! Come on people, doesn’t that sound familiar??? Like these late night seed peddling Evangelists, or any church Pastor that does the same!! The more the people sinned, the more the priests received!! The priests profited from the continuation of sin; and the more the priests tickled their ears with things they wanted to hear, the more powerful they became in the community!! So instead of trying to lead people away from sin, they encouraged sin to increase their profits!! Not all Ministries are like that, but there are many that are, and the devil will sway people to only scrutinize those crooked Ministries, to keep people away from ever wanting to go to solid churches that stand on the Word of God, and teach biblical principles!!! We all must invest in God’s kingdom, but we have to be careful where!! Bottom line is to read the Bible and it will lead you to spiritual understanding so that we don’t repeat the actions and sins of the people of yesteryear!! I’m not one of those Pastors that will tickle your ears, and I deeply, sincerely ask the Lord to lead me, and to begin with me.. These are hard things sometimes for me to post, and I don’t become to popular because of it, but I’m not in a popularity contest, I only care what the Lord thinks..Lord guide my steps.. I know you are watching…I will not ignore the Word of God.. And I will teach His Word correctly, profoundly, with humble boldness…Let me Minister your Word so that people will fall in love with you…
