2 Chronicles 19: 5-10.
Key verse: 2 Samuel 23:3 “The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.”
This commandment is to me to ensure my judgment over you is perfect, my administration over you is perfect, my teaching, my oversight and my counseling is perfect. I am always careful with every counsel I give because to me if I miss his operation over a man, the danger is that the man is dying. That is why in everything we say we must not be careless.
This is due to the fact that, there is God that is hearing me and I will give account. It is a delicate job, be ye not many teachers because we that teach shall be judged with greater judgment. So we do these things without respect of persons, whoever you are you cannot submit we will have to follow scriptures on you because you are not greater than the scripture.
You are not the Lord that employed me in this service; it is grace that brought you. If you want to confuse grace, then you are removed from the place because preachers have already destroyed enough.
Are we going to get another preacher that will come and be destroying again? No. that is why we say get away from the place and let another person take, his bishopric, that is what we do. According to the word of God and the mind of God as a father having children and as a master having servants I must discipline the erring ones according to the scriptures.
The scriptures are used for correction. Brother, your life is not agreeing with the scripture. The scripture says this and you are doing that. Woman this is what the scripture is saying but you are doing another thing. That is where discipline comes in. Who is that father that does not discipline his own children? Definitely we must discipline, we must chastise, we must remove people from service when they are not performing, that is normal.
We must rebuke and we must correct somebody it . A father does so to his children. A master does same to his servants. If I am a father in Holiness Revival Movement, if I am a master to people who serve under me, can I not therefore correct them? Can't I frown and disapprove of an ungodly character? So, this is done for their perfection and it is done for their holiness that they may inherit eternal life.
But many among them who refuse correction of a loving father go about to abuse and curse me on the street, on the internet, through radio and on Facebook. They say every manner of thing. Well, the Lord has said leave them for Me and go forward. I leave them for God and move forward, I do not answer them because I feel I will become like them.
Thought for the day:
The Lord says leave them for Me and go forward
Song for the day:
I love my Jesus, my Jesus loves me......
Bible reading for the day:
Daniel 5-6; 1 John 4
