Between Saint and Sinner. pt 1.
Between Saint and Sinner. pt 1. Preaching the Gospel is sometimes the most controversial position on Earth. Preaching or Ministering the Gospel is two different things, 1. The Truth of Life and 2. Information. Lets look at the Information side first. Information has become wide spread in this world but how much of it is the truth? Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. [Ref; Dan_8:26; Rev_10:4, Rev_22:10 Dan_12:9, Dan_8:17, Dan_10:1, Dan_11:40 Dan_11:33; Isa_11:9, Isa_29:18, Isa_29:19, Isa_30:26, Isa_32:3; Zec_14:6-10; Mat_24:14; Rom_10:18; Rev_14:6, Rev_14:7] John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. How many here are saved today? Are you sure? Have you kept the commandments of Christ? Have you loved your enemies, have you prayed for them, do you know some one that really gets on your nerves and still prayed for them. Are you doing what you are supposed to do and acting like a Christian each and every day or are you just going thru the motions? In scripture, when God demands His prophets to seal up a Book, He means that all words have been said on that subject and no more needs to be written.This is the Amen of each prophecy.
We increase our knowledge each and every day in scripture. Each time the scripture is preached or taught another idea and revelation comes out and we know a little more. But as the Bible states, man has gone after knowledge of a different sort and has left others behind. Many are going after knowledge that they think will make it easier to enter into the kingdom of Heaven and others have come up with knowledge that they believe dictates that there is no God, so no reason to worry about what they do. Some people have gotten so much knowledge that they cannot see the truth. Its like not being able to see the forest for the trees getting in the way. Knowledge is nothing without understanding. Understanding is what leads us to Christ and the Kingdom. Knowledge without understanding is like a blind man with a road map. Jesus stressed three things in His teachings, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding. One without the other two is next to useless. Lets put it this way, We all have the knowledge of Jesus, even those that dont believe, many of those are in Church today. We all have a some amount of wisdom in Gods word. If you get out on the street and ask everyone that passed,
