Praise the Lord.
Let’S Get it.
GO GO Gadget, rockets.
13 When all has been heard, the end of the matter is: fear God [worship Him with awe-filled reverence, knowing that He is almighty God] and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person. 14 For God will bring every act to judgment, every hidden and secret thing, whether it is good or evil.
SO if HE will bring everything from everyone into judgment, why are these so-called pastors telling you that its all about Love and acceptance.
Answer: Rom10: 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile; for the same Lord is Lord over all [of us], and [He is] abounding in riches (blessings) for all who call on Him [in faith and prayer]. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord [in prayer] will be saved.”
14 But how will people call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how will they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher (messenger)? 15 And how will they preach unless they are commissioned and sent [for that purpose]? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”
I don’t care, and neither does God care, how pretty their preaching is, they must stick to the script, the Holy Scriptures and not their own. However, the reason South St Pete is suffering from so many different illnesses is because
2 Timothy 4
4 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word [as an official messenger]; be ready when the time is right and even when it is not [keep your sense of urgency, whether the opportunity seems favorable or unfavorable, whether convenient or inconvenient, whether welcome or unwelcome]; correct [those who err in doctrine or behavior], warn [those who sin], exhort and encourage [those who are growing toward spiritual maturity], with inexhaustible patience and [faithful] teaching. 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold, 4 and will turn their ears away from the truth and will wander off into myths and man-made fictions [and will accept the unacceptable]. 5 But as for you, be clear-headed in every situation [stay calm and cool and steady], endure every hardship [without flinching], do the work of an evangelist, fulfill [the duties of] your ministry.
So, these imposters have paraded as true genuine called and chosen men of God but the evidence says they were NEVER called and chosen or even worse, they were called and chosen but got drunk on their “own” preaching and for some strange reason believed they could compromise, water down, sugar-coat and degrade the Living Word of God just to fill the pews and appear to the people to be a true anointed man of God.
This decision will ultimately cost them a severe penalty, eternal penalty, and unfortunately, the same for those that remain. God will NOT allow you an exemption just because your religious leader has gone rogue and been snared by satan and is now operation under his command. You were commanded by God to 2 Tim 2: 14 Remind the people of these facts, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God to avoid petty controversy over words, which does no good, and [upsets and undermines and] ruins [the faith of] those who listen. 15 Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth. 16 But avoid all irreverent babble and godless chatter [with its profane, empty words], for it will lead to further ungodliness, 17 and their teaching will spread like gangrene. So it is with Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have deviated from the truth. They claim that the resurrection has already taken place, and they undermine the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God [which He has laid] stands [sure and unshaken despite attacks], bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord stand apart from wickedness and withdraw from wrongdoing.”
Dear hearts, apparently I have some who have decided that what I have been writing is an opinion and just my own personal feelings which makes what I write subject to critic. Well, since I have been doing this for the past 7+ years, more than any other preacher in South St Pete, if you had been following and reading my columns you would know that I always bring holy scriptures to back up and support my every word. You would have also known that my Bishop Elect appointment was some 2 years ago as the Weekly Challenger came and did the article and my Bishop Consecration Service was just this past Feb 14, 2021. And if you follow me on Facebook you would have seen and can still go on and see the actual service were there was an Apostle of an International organization, one of his local area Bishops, as well as my International Bishop that conducted the service. So, no I didn’t just reach up into thin air and pluck a title and pin in on. This was a 30 year journey going from Worldwide Church of God to Church of Christ (baptized in 1988), to Dr. Fred KC Price, to Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ (rebaptized in Jesus name), to now Church of God and True Holiness, Intl.
Till next week,
Bishop Dr. Robert L. Harrison, Jr.
