SAYINGS AND DOINGS
The important thing about the ministry of God’s church is centered around the teaching of Jesus. What did Jesus say. The doings of Jesus and all other bible Heroes do not count for as much as their sayings. Jesus particularly taught some vital things that we should know. Why is the teaching part so important in our learning process?
Jesus said what comes out of a man’s mouth makes him or defiles him (Matt 15:11). By this understanding, this will also apply to Jesus. What Jesus said was so important too because it came out of his own mouth (God’s heart).Let us take the very words of God seriously. Learn the sayings of God best and act them earnestly. Let his doings complement his sayings and not vise versa. As concerns you however, your doings too complement your sayings in the reverse order.
I must tell you this with emphasis, everybody you meet in life has and delivers a message. There is a difference between the messages you see or hear and the ones you receive and live by. You live by the messages that you emit.
JESUS SAID THESE THINGS
So many Christians are scarcely ever interested in the key teachings that tell them exactly how God thinks, feels and plans out a thing. They (particularly church leaders) instead go for the kind of things that will tell their hearers that they are spiritual giants and able to dispense spiritual virtues. Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.This may not completely be unimportant but with all emphasis, these category of teachings are second place.
There are people that are offended at the things they hear from God. If the words of Jesus do NOT cause a feeling of joy, then know of course that the spirit inside of you is not of God. The plan of your life should be firmly held by the golden rule of Luke 6:31.
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
6:36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
6:40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
***The unthankful as we saw elsewhere are they that seek justice in the earth, they that do not receive meekness (Luke 6:35). Notice that God has no reason whatsoever to bless an unthankful person.
RECEIVING FOR PERFECTION
If you ever intend to be called a master one day, take my teachings seriously (Luke 4:40). People only prefer the fine things of life but have no time to prepare to face the truth about what God has deposited in their spirits forgetting that this was an investment in the first place. God invested heavily in the talents and gifts delivered to us. What Jesus our lord is saying in Luke 6:40 is that [[among all of us that are his disciples, some will be perfected. These ones will become masters as well, just as the lord is master of us all. I tell you truly; I understand what he means by this. I have received it. Every master is a servant of all.]]
Only a perfected person has eyes to see in the spirit realm (Luke 6:39). Such a person does not see fear because he/she is embodied in truth. The ways of God are revealed to us in spoken words; the man that will receive them is the one that will be what God talks about. The word describes to us the father who is the ideal. Jesus already moved into the father and is one with him (Rev 3:21). He will act the same, be the same, do the same as the father.
Therefore, take heed that you discover the will of the father in the word and live by it.
The man that will do the will of the father has to inhale the father’s habits. All of this stems out of the word (understanding how to walk in the light of God’s word). Only then can he be able to receive the teachings that come from him. I have talked about meekness for example. If a man is too full of himself, such a man will never have enough space for the lord to control.
The word of God teaches us in this fashion;
