MORNINGTIME 3290 
 
This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be BLAMELESS , the husband of one wife, VIGILANT, SOBER, of GOOD BEHAVIOR, given to HOSPITALITY, apt to TEACH; NOT given to WINE, no STRIKER, NOT GREEDY of filthy lucre; BUT PATIENT, not a brawler, not covetous; One that RULETH WELL his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (FOR IF A MAN KNOW NOT HOW TO RULE HIS OWN HOUSE, HOW SHALL HE TAKE CARE OF THE CHURCH OF GOD?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; HOLDING THE MYSTERY OF THE FAITH IN A PURE CONSCIENCE. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the Faith which is in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 3:1-13. Righteous Judgment is starting to fall on "the church" in America. That's ALL churches, all denominations, all faiths, all religions across the spectrum, no one gets a free pass. The cheats, hirelings, and false any bodies will fall by the wayside in prominent heaps. Satan's church will fill with these cast- offs. And the Pure, Persecuted, Prosecuted, and even Martyred Believers, the Followers of Christ look like the above verses. Everyone will Know, and Inhabit their Rightful Place in the Body of Chris. No, not all will be deacons and elders, but the men and women of the Bride of Christ WILL LIVE AT THE DEACON AND ELDER LEVEL in and through Christ, and they WILL, Be Blessed.
