MORNINGTIME 2082

 

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me TO PREACH THE GOSPEL to the poor; he hath sent me TO HEAL the brokenhearted, TO PREACH DELIVERANCE to the captives, and RECOVERING OF SIGHT to the blind, TO SET AT LIBERTY them that are bruised, TO PREACH the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19. Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His Feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He laid not his hand: also THEY SAW GOD, AND DID EAT AND DRINK. Exodus 24:9-11. God has called us to, among other things, Preach His Gospel. Preaching the Gospel is like setting a smorgasbord, (a great variety), of a Fine Food Feast, eating from the Hand of the Lord Himself. A feast for some people is a cold glass of milk. For others, it's serious meat with lots of good stuff to chew on. And all kinds of food in between. The Gospel will preach to everyone in the room because the Holy Spirit will custom tailor His Word to each individual listening. As in Exodus 24:9-11, the Lord has even brought food Himself to feed a large banquet gathering of people, here on earth. Here's my point. THE GOSPEL is God's provision to Feed His Sheep. NOTHING ELSE will feed (saved and unsaved alike), like the Gospel. The Gospel will feed both the sheep, and the Preacher. The Gospel will cut, both the sheep AND the Preacher. It is the Word of God applied to man, any man, all men, saved and unsaved, across the board. Preachers of Christ will Preacher the whole gospel to all the sheep. Hirelings are "preachers" who only do enough to keep the pay check coming. They serve only themselves. The wolf comes and they're nowhere to be found, the sheep are on their own, and not all sheep survive the onslaught. Preach the Gospel and the sheep Thrive. Don't, and they won't, Be Blessed.
