(What Does The Bible Teach About Preachers?)
Part 100: God’s Preachers Preach/Teach Christ Jesus The New Covenant Not The Old (II Corinthians 3: 1-18)
Peace be unto you. We come thanking Almighty God our Father for His Son our Saviour Christ Jesus and for the Holy Spirit.
Brethren patience is the way to the kingdom. In all things fret not as you keep your eyes on God. Our prayer today and for all the days to come is for peace and love throughout the land. A man that sees not peace is lost and headed to destruction. Let it be written that there will be and can be peace.
Peace and Love, Carl A. Patton a willing servant of Almighty God in service to Christ writing for the Freedom Journal April 25, 2007.
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
We will begin our discussion at this point regarding the role of the Preacher and the new converts taken from II Corinthians 3. However we will begin with verse 17 of the preceding chapter.
II Corinthians 2: 17: “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.” (Also see II Corinthians 4: 2).
Paul reveals that one of his primary qualifications is that he is not one that corrupts the word of God. His sincerity also was noted in that his preaching was unmixed with human tradition.
Brethren during the days of Paul and the days in which we now live many come to preach only for money. This is one of the great tragedies of humankind. This is why we (FreedomJournal) try so hard toward advising you to read and study the Bible. Our sad report is that most Preachers are not God’s Preachers thus they Preach not Christ but a denial of Christ as they reach back to the Old Testament to use a law once for the Jews to entice people to give money to the church.
It is written that giving during the New Covenant is a heart principle. It is not a commandment. God will judge those that don’t give of their time and finances that have resources to give because Christ will come back for the Day of Judgment.
II Corinthians 3: 1: “Do we begin to commend ourselves? Or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?” (Also see II Corinthians 5: 12 and 10: 12).
Many false teachers carried forged letters that noted certain credentials. For example many false teachers today carry bogus degrees and letters by their names noting certain educational credentials. Thus we have many unaccredited Bible College that offer phony degrees for a price. However one is not guaranteed scriptural Truth at the colleges that are accredited as false teaching abounds throughout the schools and church.
Meanwhile Paul did not need any letters of recommendation. But Paul had written letters of introduction for his brethren (for example Romans 16: 1-2 and Timothy I Corinthians 16: 10-11).
