Titus 2:1-5 KJV
“1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
Brothers and Sisters are You, Your Brother’s, thy Sister’s Keeper? Your Actions, Your Words, Your Beliefs would say that you are not and by doing so you have allowed Satan, you have allowed False Doctrine to bring The Church, to be trodden under foot by Man and Satan.
Too many of you Think, Believe that YOU Do Not have to watch out for Your Brother or Your Sister, but you cast them all to a church, thinking that it is Not Your Responsibility. What a Fallacy!!! Because of this, there are those who are to be Administers Of The Word, that are Liars, who Fleece The Sheep, Flesh Indulgent, that have change The Word into False Doctrine, that the Sheep, being dumb, have consumed and live in houses full of disease, sickness and death! The Corrupted House Of God!!!!
Scriptures Teach us that in order to keep Order In Gods House, meaning You as a person and the place of Worship and Prayer, that Strict, Structural Living Must take place. Moses is the First one to set this in Gods People, by the council of his father-in-law.
Exodus 18:19-26 KJV
“19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God: 20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do. 21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place [such] over them, [to be] rulers of thousands, [and] rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens: 22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, [that] every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear [the burden] with thee. 23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee [so], then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace. 24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said. 25 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. 26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.”
This was carried out through many generations, but most people miss the one of the most important things about this, that is, they became Thy Brothers Keeper. The count went from those Men who Feared God, Sound Men, a Thousand down to Ten. That means that for every Ten People there was a God Fearing Head over them, Watching Them in how they Lived.
What most people Do Not Understand is this Godly Structure which Is Part Of The Foundation until Jesus comes. Now there are many that would argue that, one, it is not needed because times have changed, the way we do things have changed…uh, those two things are part of the problem for today’s Blood Bought. Two, some would say, it is Not anyone’s business what I do outside of the church and I say to them, then you are Living Ungodly!! Third, if no one is paying any attention how anyone is Living, then who is Instructing Godly Living…Sunday School! That has and is a joke for most places. Most churches find a warm body, hand them a book, tell what to teach and not to teach and tell them when to meet, they are not even Called As A Teacher. There is No Investigation to whom these people really are! But most of the teaching that goes on, has nothing to do with How DO I Live As A Blood Bought, most is Historic!
Now, let us jump to the day Jesus Set another layer to this Foundation.
Ephesians 2:19-22 KJV
“19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Ephesians 4:10-16 KJV
“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: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
If you put what Moses did with what Jesus setup, The Church should not have gone astray!!! But no one is willing to Follow Gods Structural Foundation, but man have created for themselves Their Own Foundation to please the flesh!
The Third part of My Brother’s Keeper involves Church Discipline. Do you know that there is supposed to be a Godly Church Government that is to make sure that, WE, The Blood Bought, Live Godly Lives.
Matthew 18:15-17 KJV
“15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell [it] unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.”
Now, if you not paying attention you will miss what the Trespass Is, most think it deals with the Flesh only, but it deals with the Life Of One Living As A Blood Bought. We know this by verse 17, which says if they do not Hear The Church that they are to be Removed and Treated As A Heathen. Uh, the only ones that are counted as Heathens are those who do not Live Godly Lives. Also, another part that most miss is this is a Brother or Sister In Christ!
But see, the church is not being The Church, there is no Brother’s Keepers, which also goes to the Sisters as well. For most, tell me the last time a Brother, who is Truly Called By Jesus, came and visited your home AND inquired about your Personal Living Habits, allowing them to see your Whole House? For most, the only time they speak to anyone that Jesus has set is in a church, just to let it be known that they were there. Most of you would not Allow the Anointed to come and see how you Live, you have too many things to hide.
If, most, anyone needs any Godly Living Help, from food to marriage counseling, it is only sought when things have gotten out of hand, for most, this is too late! It is the Individual that has to Seek and the Truth of the matter most will not Seek, but will deal with it on Their Own Terms, this is a Catastrophic Failure Of The Church!!!
Where Is My Brother’s Keeper? Who Is Watching Over My Life?
Now most, if not all, would say that Jesus and The Holy Spirit are my Keeper, Watching Over My Life. This is a Half Truth Statement. Stop and think about it, if it was only Jesus and The Holy Spirit that was need to make sure that You Walk according to God’s Will, then we do not need a church, we do not need the Five Fold Ministry (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher), we would not even need the Bible. On top of that the only statement of Faith you would need would be…
Romans 10:9 KJV
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Approximately there are 783,137 Words in the King James Bible, the above is only 29 Words! There would be some that would say that it is that Individuals Responsibility to Read The Bible, it is THEIR Responsibility to Adhere to What they read and What THEY Understand… WHAT A Catastrophe!!!
I am My Brother’s Keeper, if I See or Hear of a Wrong Living, then it has become MY Responsibility to Say or Do something to Correct a Brother or Sister, for it is Jesus that will Hold ME Responsible for doing so! This also means that Jesus will HOLD Me Responsible for NOT Saying or Doing!!
Now to those who say “Judge Not…”, you are ignorant! You say and use this Scripture, but in yourselves you Judge according to you Not Judging, do you Judge, you just don’t want anyone to know you do!!
Jesus said that We, The Church, are to Judge, we are to Weigh All Manners Of Life, both Within and Without the body.
Matthew 7:16 KJV
“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”
How can I know What Fruits they have unless I am paying attention to them? Judging them to What Fruit they bear? Then by Jesus, I am My Brother’s Keeper!!! What Jesus has said goes beyond just what you see with your eyes or hear with your ears when they come to church, it goes into Their Lives, both Physical and Spiritual!!! I AM My Brother’s Keeper!!!
This goes so much deeper than what I am saying here, but to those who are Called into an Office, rather you like it or not, You Are Your Brother’s Keeper, Physically and Spiritually, making sure that no one has an excuse to fall. To those who have not an Office, you are still Your Brother’s Keeper, Physically and Spiritually, keeping watch so that those whom you know do not fall.
As Timothy said, there is a day coming and is already here, that The Church will no longer Hear Sound Doctrine, but will find those who will agree with them, making up False Doctrine to Live By and here we are!
1 Timothy 1:10 KJV
“For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;”
2 Timothy 4:3 KJV
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”
My Brother’s Keeper, is of Sound Doctrine and Bears Fruit that Jesus has Demanded that we Live By…are you Living By Sound Doctrine, are you being Your Brother’s Keeper?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
