“19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Brothers and Sisters let us Examine this List Of Sins, to insure they are Not Among You, Within You. We Walk a Fine Line that Obedience is a Must To The Spirit Of The Father.

Now, Brothers and Sisters this is but a short list of Sins Against The Father, Against Jesus and The Holy Spirit, there are many more that Should Be Being Taught in The Church. If the church that you attend is Not Teaching you such things, they are Not Fighting Against Sin, but in fact Allowing Sin To Take Place WITHOUT OBLIGATION in Their Understanding. In other words, “if WE Do Not See It then it Must Not Exist, so therefore, WE Cannot be Held Accountable”. In fact those who Claim they are Leaders who do not Teach Against such things will be Accountable For YOUR IGNORANCE, YOUR FALL!
“Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that [is] unprofitable for you.”
With that being said, you also will be held Accountable For Your Actions, which means, that even though the Leaders Failed to be Leaders From God, you will Still Give An Account To God.
“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
The Five Fold Ministry was and is established to Bring You Into Maturity, that is, To Be As God Says To Live. If you do not have those who are Chosen, Called By Jesus then you are following after a Man and Not Jesus.
“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone];”
“10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:”
I could tell you anything of My Own Accord, My Own Words, My Own Beliefs, but I DO NOT, accept that which is within me by The Spirit Of God. My point is this, if Jesus did not Call, then it is Flesh that Leads. So, then, how do you know whether one is Called or Not?
There are Three Points to consider as Facts to Their Calling. 1)Jesus is the Only One Who Can Call; 2)They will Lead You to The Truth…No Matter The Cost To Them; 3)Their Actions, Their Flesh, will Bear Witness to the Fact Of Their Calling.
These of us who are Called, who are Anointed, have a Drawing Of The Holy Spirit Continually Within Their Calling. In other words they will always Strive In What They Have been Called To Do.
Dealing with The Five Fold, each Office will Strive to Bring The Blood Bought INTO ONE ACCORD, ONE WORD, ONE SPIRIT, they will not look after their Own Agenda, but will always be concerned with God’s Agenda, Within and Without The Church.
If The Pastor is not Speaking The Truth, that is The Whole Word, then RUN! If the church that you attend has Teachers that have not been Called By Jesus, but are only warm bodies reading from a booklet, then RUN! If you attend a church where there is No Apostle or No Prophet Overseeing the Governmental Affairs In Doctrine, then you might consider where you are. If there is No Evangelist to Proclaim The Gospel, consider why. A “Board” who call themselves many different names, “Pastor Selection Committee”, “Board Of Directors” or any other name, they are NOT THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CHURCH!!! These are Fleshly Committees, Boards made up of Their Own Doctrinal Belief System.
Now, before anyone losses it, show me, write to me, email me your findings that The Church is to be Splintered, Fractured, Their Own Doctrine, that They Are The Only Right Way… ANY WHERE IN THE BIBLE and I will Repent. But see by One set of Scriptures, I Find that it Out Weighs ANYTHING YOU COME UP WITH…
“1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”
When these Scriptures were written, there were No Baptist, No Methodist, No Catholic, No Protestant, No…NO…NO OTHER NAME, BUT THE NAME OF JESUS THE CHRIST!!! Before that, THE TEMPLE OF GOD IN JERUSALEM!!!
Because The Church, The Blood Bought, are Fractured, Divided, then The Truth, that is, The Word Is NOT the same. Each being led by some flesh, either theirs or others before them. If WE, The Blood Bought were Under One Rule, Under One Teaching then we would not have the problems that we have in our society, in the church. Now, let me make it clear, it is not the Physical Building, that is not the problem, but it is those who Claim That Jesus Is Lord. As the Scripture says there are many members, so it is, but there is ONLY ONE CHURCH!
If the Governing Body was truly The Five Fold, then Households would not have Marital Issues, would not have Divorce, and would not have a Thousand Different Teachings! We would be Our Brothers Keeper, that is, keeping a watch over each other so we would not fall into Worldly Affairs. Again before anyone loses it, yes, these things were in the Old Testament, but, if they would have Followed After God AS HE INTENDED, there would be none of these things. So God, once again says Follow Me, Follow My Ways and to Help You to do so, I’ll give You, The Church, The Blood Bought, The Five Fold Ministry to Keep You In MY WILL.
The beginning of this message was to show you, in part, what should be being Taught, that in most cases, which is not being taught. Jesus, wants His Bride, His People, The Blood Bought, to Understand that He has set up the means for us to be One, but it is Flesh and Blood that has brought Division. The Word IS THE WORD no matter what building you go to, but it does matter What Church You Belong To!!!
Are You Being Taught
The Word Of God?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
