To The Church Of Our Lord God Jesus Christ As Your Brother And The Apostle Too All Nations, I Speak In One And As One For You And To You Life, Health And Prosperity In The Lord Jesus Christ!
One of our main mission of Apostle James & Betty R Winfree & Team Ministries is to see many people come to Christ for Salvation and for their lives to be changed through The Lord Jesus Christ that we promote and share here online free of charge to all. If you do not know The Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, please read the following: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). "Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ, and YOU WILL be saved" ( Acts 2:38 ) And (Acts 16:31).
I wish I could tell you that most MINISTERS are preaching the Word. I can't—some are not. Here are Five Truths We Must Teach, Preach and Share to Christ Believers so they will know how to please God instead of preaching and following after the M EG A Stars ministries and preachers.
1. Entertainment Alone Is Not Working Preachers!
“Music, Drama,Movies And Videos, Taking The Place Of Jesus Christ Holy Spirit”
None of those things is wrongfulness they displace the preaching of the Word of God. Some teachers will tell you that you need to tell stories in your sermons or you will bore people. I'm not bored. If you're not bored, no one is going to be bored. Can you take hold of the Word of God and take hold of a group of people and make them listen because you have something to say? Its Time And Long Over Due To TEACH, PREACH AND LIVE YESHUA, JESUS!!!
Are you bored? The greatest sin in ministry is to bore people with words with no action or works. I will say this over and over again until your eyes and hearts are open, “Preaching is YESHUA Truths coming through a person who is on fire in Him. A person who can speak about these things dispassionately has no right whatsoever to be in ministry; and should never be allowed to stand before God people.”
You have to get the Word of God, let it grip you heart by the power of the Holy Spirit, and drive over to church with something to say.
Now if a story fits in, I might tell you a story before I sit down, but don't make that your thing. If people come up to you afterward and say, “I love that story you told,” it should make you crazy. Really, that’s what I am? I'm a storyteller? Christ’s gospel is the main story that you should be telling.
2. Share Our Blessings With Each Other!
“There are some things I just want to share with you today first ministers and them saints We must not only say We love each other, But must show it in our actions and our works . Do something. .”
Since when is the man of God some Dr. Phil and Oprah combo? You're supposed to proclaim a message. If you're not preaching, glory is not coming down. You have got to preach YESHUA, JESUS—people have to hear a word from God in The Holy Spirit.
3. People Pleasers Just To Get Their Support!
“Careful, careful, don't offend, always comfortable, never pressured, just a pinch of truth, when they're ready to handle it.”
The preaching of the gospel has become so watered down that the non-elect can't even reject it. If you don't have people walking away from your ministry saying, “This is a hard word, who can accept it?” then you don't have a ministry like Jesus had.
I just hate this notion that we can be so clever and sophisticated that we can remove the offense from the gospel. It is foolishness to those who are perishing; it is the power of God to those who are being saved. It is the aroma of death to those who are perishing; it is the aroma of life to those who are being saved.
Listen, preacher: If you don't want to be the aroma of death to those who are perishing, you can never be the aroma of life to those who are being saved. That’s why preaching is hard work.
4. Intellectualizing In Your Flesh!
“I've been thinking and researching this in the original languages . . .”
We're supposed to love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength. And preaching that stops at the shoulders is defective preaching. It has to move me—it has to call me to action—mind, emotions, and will. If you're just preaching your theological construct, you're blowing it.
Stop preaching the scaffolding around the Bible and preach the Word, what God actually says and you do it first preachers.
A powerful brother in the faith once said and a minister in the faith said, “God deigns [considers it proper] to consecrate to himself the mouths and tongues of men in order that his voice may resound in them.” Your preaching is at its best when your people have forgotten that you're even standing there, and God’s Spirit is moving through you. I am afraid that we've lost sight of this.
5. YESHUA, JESUS Said If A Child Comes In My Name Receive him!
“Twenty-minute sermons get the people money and run too the bank”
I don't know how it works at your meeting place, but for us it takes five minutes to set the rig up and another five or 10 minutes to take it down. If you're only preaching for 20 minutes, that gives you five minutes to drill. You're not going very deep, are you? It takes some time.
“The One who hears you hears me JESUS Said.”
“The One who hears you,” JESUS said, “hears me.”
Yet there’s no pridefulness, is there? It’s so humbling. It’s a crushing weight, isn't it? I tell people the weekly message preparation is the crucible of my sanctification. Never get in a habit of getting up before Christ Believers when things aren't square everywhere. That by itself will keep you going in the right direction. “The One who hears you hears Me,” YESHUA said. I love that challenge—to be that person so please stop thinking I'm in competition with you.
