Jesus' prophecy for End Time Ministers
Jesus' words foretell of 2 distinct profiles of End Time ministers. One group pleases God & the other does not, being Ministers who FAIL God's charge.
America's Religious TV airwaves & Church pulpits are filled with the 2nd group of FAILING MINISTERS.
The FIRST group profiles a true Minister who is "faithful" to God AND to the charge given to him to oversee and feed the Lord's people. Of these the Lord said:
"Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his Master put in charge of His household to GIVE THEM THEIR FOOD AT THE PROPER TIME? BLESSED is that slave whom his Master finds so doing when He comes." (Matthew 24:45,46)
(v 47) "....Truly I say to you, that He will put him in charge of all His possessions."
On the other hand, the Lord had alarming words for the SECOND PROFILE of End Time Ministers. These were SLOTHFUL and NEGLECTFUL End Time Ministers "in charge of His household". He named them as "evil".
These are End Time ministers who DO NOT give His children "their food", NOR "at the proper time". (V 45). Of these He said:
(V 48) "But if that evil slave says in his heart, 'My Master is not coming for a long time' ..and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards,
(V 50) then the Master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know; and shall cut him in pieces, and will assign him a place with the hypocrites; weeping shall be there and the gnashing of teeth." (Matt 24:48-51).
America's BLIND, WORLDLY GUIDES are serving themselves, NOT God's children
Many (MOST) of America's TV Ministries, popularized Church Leaders, so-called 'prophets', BLIND SELF-SENT 'Watchmen' and UnChristlike Ministers today STILL NEGLECT the body of Christ by NOT "giving God's children THEIR FOOD". (Matt 24:45)
This is a tangible fact seen/heard daily with an onslaught of empty sermons, ear-tickling messages & elementary teachings. (Heb 6:1)
Why? They're too busy promoting & serving themselves & loving the applause & recognition of men rather than serving God AND serving His people as #1 priority.
They have what I call a "Which camera is on me now?" mindset.
Imagine, children hungering for food but the ones put in charge of the food ( the "evil slave" being the End Time Ministers in Jesus' words ) NOT "giving it to them" and witholding it from them.
This is EXACTLY what is occurring with America's TV Ministers (TBN, Daystar, Atlanta 57, etc), Church Pastors, popularized religious speakers/authors and so-called 'prophets & apostles' today. (LINKS below)
They dish out only shallow words & empty proph- ecies to a thirsting body of Christ who hungers for the deeper things of God. But, God's children leave empty-handed every time, having heard a 'speaker' only, with no signs or miracles or demon- trations of power whatsoever following America's flashy celebrity preachers.
In fact, any 'minister' who does not have the true Gifts of the Spirit operating with demonstrations of power in his/her 'ministry' is nothing more than a 'religious speaker', AT BEST.
NOW IS THE "PROPER TIME"
What could be WORSE in "not giving His household their food" than witholding it at the very 'time' when they need it the most ?
This is precisely why the Lord labeled these self-serving End Time Ministers as "evil".
NOW ! IS THE EXACT "PROPER TIME" to "GIVE" God's children their food. Yet, today's ministers are STUCK in the shallow, ear-tickling & elementary things of God's Word (Heb 6:1) and to His people's harm.
Jesus' Words to 'GIVE THEM THEIR FOOD AT THE PROPER TIME" COULD NOT BE MORE RELEVANT AND URGENT TO ANY GENERATION'S 5-Fold MINI- STERS than to this generation, right now.
This is clear in view of the TANGIBLE Nearness of Christ and "seeing ALL these things" (Matt 24:33) lined up on the world's stage today and as pinpointed at Heisnear.com.
Yet America's Religious Broadcasters (TBN/ Daystar/ Atlanta 57) STILL fill the airwaves with RELIGIOUS FOLLY, false prophecies, false prophets and unqualified ministers who are not 'tested nor above reproach' which, according to Apostle Paul, makes them unqualified to serve even as a "Deacon", much less as a 5-Fold overseer of God's people. (1Timothy 3:10). (LINK below: Bulls-eye Profile of true Leaders)
Like the Laodicean Church, America's top TV Reli- gious Networks & exalted TV Ministers have all but THROWN OUT the true PROPHETIC WORD OF THE LORD for His people AND for America in today's crucial End Times.
WHY? Because when the Laodiceans pushed Jesus out, they ALSO pushed out 'prophecy' too, having pushed out the prime prophet Himself: Jesus ! (Rev 3:14-20)
HUMILITY and REPENTANCE REQUIRED
Today's money-changing Ministers & Religious TV platforms themselves are responsible for keeping God's children in AMERICA in the current LUKE- WARM state over the last 20 years or so, having created it in the first place.
In the days ahead, more "tables will be turned over" by the Lord of money-changing Ministers who fleece God's people and serve themselves while living in sin.
It will take great humility on the part of today's top Religious Broadcasters (TBN, Daystar, etc), popularized Ministers, exalted "prophecy" authors and self-sent 'prophets, apostles, bishops and Reverends' to recognize AND then also admit their many errors in teachings & false prophecies which have led God's people into slop-Christianity & its obvious LUKE- WARM state in America and around the world.
FULL REPENTANCE REQUIRED AT THIS TIME
UNLESS top Religious TV Broadcasters & popularized TV Ministers hear God's true voice & prophetic Word at THIS CRUCIAL TIME, then part of America today (being their audience) will remain EXACTLY LIKE the Laodicean born again believers who had PUSHED JESUS ALL THE WAY OUTSIDE of His own church. (*Laodicea America LINK below).
To some degree in America, this is definitely coming & foretold by the Lord in the parable of the 'ten virgins'. (Matt 25:1,2). These worldly believers are those who 'went away' back into the world at "midnight", named as "foolish virgins". (Matt 25:6,10)
But, according to Jesus, the BLIND Laodiceans' FIRST requirement to GET BACK ON TRACK was to "HEAR MY VOICE". (Rev 3:20). This requires true humility to 'hear' and/or to 'see' the truth of God's Word.
But, just "hearing" God's Word is not enough by itself. It requires ACTION & abiding in, continually.
Secondly, they were ALSO REQUIRED to 'OPEN THE DOOR' and invite Him back in. (Rev 3:20)
BOTH of these actions together (Hearing His Voice PLUS humbly OPENING THE DOOR AND Inviting Him in) from a heart of HUMILITY, will ALWAYS cause the Lord to IMMEDIATELY RESPOND.
THIS IS EXACTLY what the Spirit of God is saying to AMERICA RIGHT NOW, in this divine order of steps: 1) Hear My voice, 2) then OPEN the DOOR and INVITE ME BACK IN.
God's VOICE to His True End Time 5-Fold Ministers TODAY ( apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers / Ephesians 4:12 )
RIGHT NOW, God is calling His true born again Spirit-filled servants/Ministers "who KNOW THEIR GOD, to display strength and DO MIGHTY EXPLOITS" (Dan 11:32) to His glory; and to MAKE CHRIST KNOWN !!
...while ALSO: "Providing understanding to the many" (Dan 11:33) regarding Crucial End Time truths ("their food") required for God's HUNGRY and thirsting HOUSEHOLD of children AT THIS CRITIICAL TIME.
WHY? IN ORDER TO EQUIP them (Eph 4:12) and TO READY His people into UNITY & Maturity (Eph 4:12) & HOLINESS towards His coming, being WITHOUT ANY SPOT OR ANY WRINKLE in the garments which He has graciously & lovingly clothed us with. (Eph 5:27)
THE GOOD NEWS & PROMISE OF THE LORD:
Those Ministers (and ALL BELIEVERS) who... "have not soiled their garments will walk with Me in white; for they are worthy." (the Lord Jesus Christ / Rev 3:4)
