Come Join Us In Remembering What The World Has Forgotten..... The Seventh Day Sabbath!
One who is charged with conveying news of information; one who is a Prophet.
We read in Malachi 3:1 in part, Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me.
Ministers, Preachers, Evangelist, Teachers and EVERY Saint are Messengers of God “YHWH” and as such should and MUST make a conscious effort to conduct themselves as Christ Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, did in word and in deed.
The Saints are responsible in preparing the Way of the Lord's Return in the Clouds of Glory by sharing the Written Word of the Lord, the Bible with Souls that are lost “Sinners.”
The Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 42:18-25 wrote, Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. **Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’S servant? *Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not. *The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. *But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.
*Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? *Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law. *Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.
Who is so blind as the Soul that refuses to see and who is so deaf as the Soul that refuses to hear or listen? The Soul that refuses to listen or see, thinks that they already know it all.
It seems that all too many of the Lord's Messengers “Ministers, Preachers, Teachers and Saints" in general, are willingly ignorant like those written about in 2nd Peter 3:5.
Have you ever tried to show someone something and they shut their eyes and refused to see or tried to tell someone something and they plugged their ears and refused to listen?
This type of individual is destroyed for a lack of knowledge, Hosea 4:6. They are also blind, in part, because they cannot or will not see the importance of sharing the FULL Word of Truth, the Written Word of God, the Bible.
There are way too many Souls in churches that are like prisons; they have a form of godliness but deny the Power of God. The Power of God is His Laws, Commandments, Judgments, Precepts and Statutes and His ability to enforce them. Their form of godliness keeps them from hearing, knowing and doing the Truth. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Saints to be diligent Messengers of the Written Word of Truth, the Bible.
We that desire to be called Saints must be diligent as good Messengers of the Lord to share the Gospel so that when Jesus returns, in the Clouds of Glory, no one will be able to point to us and say, “You saw me day by day and you knew that I was astray “A Sinner” but you never mentioned Him (Jesus) to me.”
In Isaiah 43:1-3 the Prophet Isaiah wrote, But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. *When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. *For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
Sometimes, living a Christ-like life, as Messengers of the Lord, requires that the Saints walk through as it were, troublesome waters and flames of fire. But as the Lord was with Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, He will be with the Saints of today, because He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Praise His Holy Name!
Mankind was formed, made and created to Serve and Praise the Lord. Our lives should be as the Light of Jesus, drawing Souls unto the Lord. We should be able to communicate with others without being fearful because the Lord said that we are to let Him be our fear and our dread, Isaiah 8:13.
King Solomon in Proverbs 25:13 wrote, As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that sent him: for he refresheth the soul of his master.
The Saints that consciously endeavor to be an effective Messenger of Righteousness are well-pleasing to the Lord.
There is precious little that makes our earthly parents happier than to see and hear that their children are living as they would have them to live. God, as the Heavenly Father of ALL the Saints, is also refreshed with great joy when His children are dutifully faithful Messengers to those that are lost and to one another as well.
In Haggai 1:13 the Prophet Haggai wrote. Then spake Haggai the Lord’s Messenger in the Lord’s Message unto the people, saying I am with you, saith the Lord.
ALL of the Saints of today need to get on board, as it were, and share the Message of the Lord with whomsoever they can. They need to share the Good News that Jesus is and He is a rewarder of ALL that diligently seek Him, Hebrews 11:15. Be a Messenger of Good News and not of Gloom and Doom.
The Prophet Malachi in Malachi 2:7 wrote, for the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the Law at His mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of Host.
Some people might want to say that it is up to the Preachers to share the Message of the Lord (To the people in the World) which is true enough, but in the Book of Revelation 1:6 and 5:10, we read where the Angle of the Lord told John that Jesus has “Present-tense” made ALL of us, who are Called to be Saints, to be as Kings and Priest unto our God.
Therefore, every Soul that confesses Salvation in, through and by the Precious Shed Blood of Jesus is obligated, as a Messenger of the Gospel of Truth, to share the same.
We read in 2nd Kings 5:9-10, So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. *And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.
The Lord God Almighty has commissioned you and I, as Saints, through the Precious Shed Blood of Jesus, His Only Begotten Son by the Power of the Holy Spirit, to be Messengers of Truth in thought, word and deed.
Therefore, let’s not be like the Messenger of Elijah and seek after rewards from mankind, but let’s be like Jesus our Lord, Saviour and soon coming King and seek after lost Souls. Let us also edify one another that we might be found Faithful unto the END. Praise the Holy and Righteous Name of Jesus!
