False Ministers

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preached any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed (Galatians 1:8-9).

In the beginning of this epistle,  Apostle Paul is joined with his brethren and he gives a general account both of his office and of the manner in which he was called to it. He assures them that his commission to it was ordained by God. He instructs his readers there is no true peace without grace, and how the world is evil through the sins of man. Informing the believer that Jesus died to deliver us from this present evil world, not to remove his people out of it, but to rescue them from the power of it.Jesus Christ called and ordained Paul to be an Apostle. His ordination didn’t come by a man by way of a piece of paper. Many have been ordained by a man while others have ordained themselves to be in certain positions. A paper title will not give a person the anointing to be in a position, but when the individual has been ordained by God, they don’t need a piece of paper to carry out the position that has been ordained by God.

Many rely on a title rather than the fruit that is manifested through the individual. Just like the Apostle Paul, it’s Jesus who ordains and anoints the individual to be His servant. When the individual has been anointed of God, He gives them the office and the anointing to set the captives free through the preaching of the Word of God and the laying on of hands through praying for individuals, in some cases the minister can just speak the Word of God into the individual life and they will be set free (Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk – Acts 3:6). Anyone who is professing to be a minister should have a manifestation of the office they’re professing.

Too many times, Christians keep the anointing in the past rather than in the present. When Jesus ascended to heaven, He gave gifts to those who were called into the ministry (And He gave some, apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelist; and some pastors and teachers ; for the perfecting {equipping} of the saints, for the work of the ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ – Ephesians 4:11-12). These gifts from Jesus was for today’s church body to bring healing and deliverance to the body of Christ. People shouldn’t attend church and leave the same, the anointing should be upon the pastor as well as the leaders to destroy the yokes Satan has placed on individuals.

Many are in pastoral and other ministerial offices, but don’t believe in the healing and deliverance of Jesus Christ (Behold, I give unto you power {authority} to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven – Luke 10:19-20). Infirmities, sickness, diseases, depression, and suppression and other ailments are spirits that have attached themselves to people, and it’s going to take the anointing of God to set them free, mind you some spirits individual have is because the individual has freely or in ignorance gave them permission. This is why it’s so important to pray, read and study the Word of God to beware of what we’re fighting.

Every sickness is not demonic, but some are, and the people need to be set free. Many Christians are very familiar with the world but have no clue regarding the spirit realm. Many have been deceived by those who call themselves ministers and have led many away from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Teaching they can do anything they desire to do, and still enter into the kingdom of God and heaven, “Once saved, always saved”. Christianity is a lifestyle, it’s not a Sunday action, but every day we submit ourselves to the Word of God and the Spirit of God. Know who is ministering to you, check for the Fruit of the Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit, if none of them are being manifested, it’s a possibility they have been called by themselves into the ministry and not by God.

Just like God has ordained ministers, so has Satan, God anoints and appoints and so does Satan (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 -2nd Corinthians 11:14-16). False teaching derives from people not knowing the Word of God as well as those that have been sent from Satan.

Jesus is soon to return and Satan is trying to influence as many as he can to turn from the true teaching of the Word of God. Believers who have lived by the Word of God for 20 years or more is being influenced by false teachers and doctrines. Christians must put on the whole armor of God and keep it on. Keep a time you will spend with God in prayer, sitting in His presence, reading and studying the Word of God as well as having days of fasting.

We never know when Jesus is to return or when death will knock on our door. Whichever one comes, Jesus or death, we must be in good standing with God if we want to enter into heaven, and the only we can do that is having faith in Jesus and what He accomplished at the Cross as well as submitting ourselves to the written Word and instructions of God. Hell is real and it’s prepared for Satan and those whose under his leadership. Jesus instructed His disciples if they love Him they would keep His commandments (Jesus answered and said unto him, If  a man love me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode [home] with him – John 14:23). Every professing Christian should know the Word of God and shall live by the Word of God!
