Teaching, Preaching, and Healing

Do you want peace on earth and goodwill toward all men and women?  We can demand our individual rights from our governments in an attempt to modify the behavior and laws governing the country we live in or we can minister Love and change the hearts of those around us.  In turn, they will want to pursue the righteous path of respecting the rights of all.  Man’s way is to pursue change by force whereas the way of Heaven is by Love.  There are a multitude of philosophies and theory but truly the only path we should pursue is one which FATHER reveals to us.  HE will confirm our path by signs and wonders.  Shouldn’t our priority be to bring Heaven to earth?  Won’t that solve the problems besetting the world today?  Do you think that more demonstrations and/or bloodshed will convince others of what is right for all to live by?  People want to be treated fairly and ultimately according to the principles of Love.

By THE SPIRIT Matthew wrote in chapter 4:

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

Jesus came to show us FATHER but He also came to show us “us”.  He is our Example to walk and live by.  Why spend time focusing, analyzing, and assessing the ministry or life of others when our Perfect Example is already provided?  Oh how simple it is if only we will embrace this Truth!  We have the solution for change yet many continue to only concern themselves with “me and my four and no more”.  Jesus gave His life for us yet are we willing to do the same for others?  He told us what our priority should be in Matthew chapter 24 when He spoke:

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Without FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, we have nothing to offer except another man’s opinions, traditions, or philosophies.  FATHER has chosen us to carry HIS Word unto all the world thus HE trusts us to do so.  As we walk in Love we will then value and esteem each person whom FATHER sends across our path in order that we might minister life.  We Love and serve FATHER by Loving and serving mankind.

We have the power to plant seed in other peoples’ lives.  This is what teaching and preaching is all about.  But how do we engage a greater audience?  By walking in the power and authority given to us by FATHER.  This power and authority is entrusted to those who walk in the same manner as Jesus, centered around unconditional Love.  We must ponder and consider this until we come to the place where we trust the seed of the Word to accomplish its mission.

Have you surrendered your will to man’s tradition and philosophy?  Have you accepted an empty life of neutrality where darkness is an acceptable way of life?  By THE SPIRIT it is written in Isaiah chapter 5:

​​20  Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

​​Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

​​Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

​21 ​​Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,

​​And prudent in their own sight!

What is your level of commitment to the Gospel?  What are you willing to give in order that the Great Commission will be fulfilled?  Many believers want to live out a passive life and be insulated from the works of the devil.  They want to be left alone and pursue their own interests without being inconvenienced in any manner.  Jesus spoke to this issue in His Revelation chapter 3:

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:

15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.

16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—

18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”

It is time to heat things up.  You may not be called to teach, preach, and heal in a public forum but you can support those who are called to be at the forefront.  It is time to be counted as a supporter as a minimum.  Take heed to what Jesus specifically said about those who remain in their passive, self-centered state.
