Please Don't Do Me Any Favors

Once again, I thank you for visiting my site. If you are reading this, you are for bringing order in the church. I pray that you will learn form this information and use it in your bible studies Sunday Schools. As with all my lessons, I charge absolutely no monetary fees for reproduction. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is to be preached throughout all generations. It is my duties as a child of the King to bring forth divine revelations of His word to all of you. This series is entitle Please Don't Do Me Any Favors. This part is in all caps because it is the foundation of the upcoming series. It sets the stage for what is to come. So get you something to snack on and your Bibles and lets be taught how to bring Order in the Church.

TURN WITH ME TO MATTHEW 6:1-4 1. TAKE HEED THAT YE DO NOT TAKE YOUR ALMS BEFORE MEN, NOT TO BE SEEN OF THEM: OTHERWISE YE HAVE NO REWARD OF YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN. 2.THEREFORE WHEN THOUGH DOEST THINE ALMS, DO NOT SOUND THE TRUMPET BEFORE THEE, AS THE HYPOCRITS DO IN THE SYNAGOGS AND IN THE STREETS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE GLORY OF MEN. VARILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THEY HAVE THEIR REWARD. 3. BUT WHEN THOU DOEST ALMS, LET NOT THY LEFT HAND KNOW WHAT THY RIGHT HAND DOETH: 4. THAT THINE ALMS MAY BE IN SECRET: AND THY FATHER WHICH SEETH IN SECRET HIMSELF SHALL REWARD THE OPENLY.

 

PLEASE DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS!!!! SOME OF YOU WILL READ THIS IN A CARNEL STATE OF MIND..BUT TAKE IT THE WAY YOU CHOOSE. IF THE SHOE FITS WEAR IT..BUT I AM HERE TO HELP SOMEONE GET FREE.. I AM TIRED OF CHURCH CLICKS- THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO IF YOU DON'T LOOK A CERTAIN WAY OR SPEAK A CERTAIN WAY THEN YOU ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO THEIR PARTICULAR CROWD. ITS SAD TO SAY THAT THESE CLICKS START FROM THE PULPIT TO THE DOOR. YOU SEE THE PASTOR HANGING WITH HIS/HER ENTOURAGE, PROPHETS WITH PROPHETS, EVANGELISTS WITH EVANGELIST, AND SO FORTH...IF YOU ARE IN ANY OF THOSE POSITIONS IN THE CHURCH, PLEASE DO NOT LET THE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN YOUR CLICK DEFINE YOU.

 

LISTEN... SOME OF US ARE GIFTED FOR THE PULPIT. WE CAN STAND THERE AND PREACH THE ROOF TOP OFF THE CHURCH UNTIL HEAVEN COMES DOWN...SOME OF US ARE GIFTED FOR THE STREET MINISTRIES..SOME OF US ARE GIFTED FOR ONE ON ONE MINISTERING. BUT ALL HAVE A COMMON CALLING. KINGDOM BUILDING. IF YOU ARE NOT KINGDOM BUILDING THAN YOU ARE WASTING TIME. IF SOULS ARE NOT RECEIVING SALVATION, HEALING, AND DELIVERENCE, THEN YOU ARE IN MINISTRY FOR SELF EDIFICATION. DO NOT SHUN THOSE WHO'S GIFTS AND CALLINGS ARE NOT SIMULAR TO YOURS. I FIND THE ONES WHO ARE UNIQUE ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE BECAUSE THEY TRULY HAVE THE LOVE OF GOD AND LOVE DOING WHAT THEY DO. ALL GIFTS AND CALLINGS ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT...AS THE WORD OF GOD SAYS IN (1CORINTHIANS 12:4-6) AND I AM PARAPHRASING: EACH CALLING IS DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER AND OPPERATE DIFFERENTLY AS WELL....BUT THE SAME SPIRIT AND THE SAME GOD OPPERATES IN ALL. PLEASE DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS. I KNOW THE SCRIPTURE IS TALKING ABOUT ALMS. YOU WILL SEE THE TIE IN IF YOU STAY WITH ME..

 

I AM TIRED OF PASTORS TREATING THEIR CONGREGANTS LIKE THEY ARE NOTHING. HAVE THE PASTOR FORGOTTEN ITS BECAUSE OF THE SAINTS THEY HAVE A JOB...OUCH I KNOW THIS ONE WILL HURT. IN SOME CHURCHES THE PASTOR/REVEREND ARE HIRED TO DO BE THE SHEPHERD OF THE FLOCK A-K-A PASTOR/REVEREND. PASTORS, I TELL YOU THIS NOT OF MYSELF BUT OF THE LORD-IT IS YOUR JOB TO TEND TO THE SHEEP AS YOU ALREADY KNOW. IF ONE STRAY YOU HAVE TO GO AND FIND THEM AND BRING THEM BACK INTO THE FOLD. YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT SOMEONE PRAYED FOR YOU AND YOU TOO WERE NOT ALWAYS SAVED.. MORE SAINTS IN THE CHURCH HAVE BEEN HURT, NOT BY THE CLICKS BUT BY THE PASTORS. AND PASTORS, JUST AS JESUS SAID SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME!...SO YOU SHOULD ALLOW YOUR SAINTS TO COME UNTO YOU. NOT JUST AFTER CHURCH ON SUNDAYS FOR A QUICK SESSION BUT ALL THE TIME. THAT MEANS SOMEONE IS STRANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AT 3:00AM, AND THEY CALL UPON YOU..YOU HAVE TO MAKE A WAY TO PICK THEM UP...I MEANT THAT IN THE NATURAL AND IN THE SPIRITUAL....

 

I AM TIRED OF PASTORS PROHIBITING THEIR SAINTS FROM EXERCISING IN THEIR CALLINGS. IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE IN YOUR CONGREGATION HAS A CALLING ON THEIR LIFE AND YOU REFUSE TO LET THEM LOOSE. I HAVE TO SAY THIS...THE BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS..AS A PASTOR, YOU ARE TO CULTIVATE THE MINISTRY THAT IS WITHIN THEM UNTIL THEY ARE FULL GROWN IN THE MINISTRY TO WHICH THEY ARE CALLED. THEN YOU ARE TO SEND THEM INTO THE WORLD. THE BIBLE SAYS ( MATTHEW 28:19-20) AND I PARAPHRASE AGAIN. TO GO TEACH ALL NATIONS TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS THAT ARE COMANDED BY GOD AND BAPTIZE THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST. WHAT GOOD ARE THEY TO BE LIMITED TO A CERTAIN SERVICE. WHENEVER THEY ARE ASKED TO COME FORTH. THE SAINTS ARE NOT FOR THE EDIFICATION OF THE PASTOR..BUT TO EDIFY THE BODY OF CHRIST. HOW CAN THEY EDIFY THE BODY IF THEY ARE LIMITED TO ONLY THE HEAD?

 

I KNOW I AM NOT GETTING A lot OF AMENS ON THIS...BUT I HAVE TO BE OBEDIENT.... NOW I AM TALKING TO WHO I AM TALKING TO HERE ON THIS ONE...STOP VIEWING YOUR SAINTS AS FINANCIAL ASSETS...THE ONLY REQUIREMENT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO IS BRING THEIR TITHES AND OFFERINGS INTO THE STOREHOUSE....IF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS RIGHT THEN YOU DON'T NEED ANYONE TO HELP YOU PAY YOUR CAR NOTE. STOP ROBBING THE SAINTS FOR YOUR WARDROBE...STOP MANIPULATING THEM SO YOU CAN TAKE WHAT THEY WORKED SO HARD FOR TO EDIFY THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT OF GOD.. DON'T YOU KNOW THAT IT IS EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH AN EYE OF A NEEDLE THAN A RICH MAN TO ENTER HEAVEN,(LUKE 18:25)... AND...WHAT PROFITS A MAN TO GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSE his SOUL. ( MATTHEW 6:19-20) PARAPHRASED, DON'T MAKE YOUR TREASURES ON EARTH WHERE THEY CAN BE EATEN UP AND STOLEN. MAKE YOUR RICHES IN HEAVEN WHERE THEY ARE SAFE.

HEARD THE PHRASE," HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS," I'LL LEAVE YOU TO PONDER ON MATTHEW 6:21. PLEASE DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS!!! NOW OUR SCRIPTURE IS SIMPLY TALKING ABOUT BLESSING OTHERS... NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU DO FOR OTHERS IS NOT TO BE BROADCASTED, ANNOUNCED, OR EVEN SPOKEN OF. IT IS TO BE DONE IN SECRET. YOU ARE NOT TO BRING UP WHAT YOU DO FOR OTHERS IN THEIR FACE...WHEN YOU DO, YOU PRACTICE MANIPULATION. MANIPULATION LEADS TO CONTROL, AND CONTROL IS A FORM OF WITCHCRAFT. TOTALLY UNGODLY. BE A BLESSING BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT GOD CALLED YOU TO DO...AND LOOK FOR NOTHING IN RETURN... SOME OF THESE PREACHERS OUT HERE ARE TREATING THEIR SAINTS LIKE THEY ARE TAKING THEM OUT ON A DATE. THEY TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT THEM TO HEAR( TICLKE THEIR FANCY) GET THEM ALL INTERESTED(SELLING DREAMS) PLACING THEM IN POSITIONS(GIVING THEM STATUS) AND BOOSTING THEM UP( MAKING THEM FEEL IMPORTANT). THEN THEY ENTICE THEM WITH WORDS ( COMPLIMENTING THEM) ONLY TO PROSTITUTE THEM ( GET THEM TO DO WHAT EVER THE PREACHER WANTS). BY THIS TIME THE SAINT IS UNDER THE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE PASTOR.

THE SAINTS LIGHT BILL IS IN DANGER OF BEING DISCONNECTED OR BABY NEED MILK, AND THE PASTOR WON'T EVEN TAKE FROM THE BENEVOLENT OFFERING TO HELP. AND IS PERSUADING THE SAINTS TO GIVE THEIR LAST...COME ON PREACHERS, LETS SHAME THE DEVIL RIGHT NOW..STOP PROPHESYING "GIVE YOUR LAST DOLLAR AND GOD WILL GIVE IT BACK TO YOU." GOD IS A REWARDER TO THEM WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM...NOT THE PASTOR...THEN WHEN THE SAINT IS ON TO THE PREACHER, AND WISH NOT TO SUPPORT THEM ANYMORE...PREACHERS STOP PROPHESYING " IF YOU DON'T LIVE RIGHT YOU YOU WILL DIE." THIS IS NOT OF GOD MY FELLOW COLLEAGUES....GET IT TOGETHER....STOP PROSTITUTING YOUR CONGREGATION....

PLEASE DON'T DO ME ANY FAVORS!!! DON'T BE LIKE THE HYPOCRITS-PRETEND TO BE BLESSING OTHERS AND YOU HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA. DON'T LET TAKE YOUR ACCOUNTANT OR YOUR BUDDIES ALONG WITH YOU WHEN YOU ARE BLESSING OTHERS...DON'T TALK ABOUT WHAT CHARITIES YOU DONATE TO AND EXPECT A PLAQUE ON THE WALL...DON'T GO TELLING ALL YOUR FRIENDS WHAT YOU DID FOR SISTER SO AND SO AND BROTHER SO AND SO...PLEASE STOP LOOKING FOR THINGS IN RETURN. I KNOW THIS WAS A HARSH WORD BUT IT WAS SAID OUT OF LOVE.. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THESE PREACHERS WHO ARE IN FELL VICTIM TO THIS WAY OF LIVING, I PRAY FOR YOUR DELIVERENCE. ASK GOD TO CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE. SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.

Stay tuned for Please Don't Do Me any Favors PT 2, " Prophetic Confusion."

Lady LaShonda, I hear you! I Love the Lord and His CHURCH and all He intended it to stand for! But, it is a shame some of the things that are said and done in the name of the Lord! LORD HELP US!

I receive what you have shared in the spirit in which it is intended and that is to enlighten others! You have spoken the TRUTH in LOVE! It is important that we study God's Word and encourage others to do the same so they will not be tossed to and fro...!

God knows all and sees all and that is what is really important! Be encouraged and Bless those who persecute you for righteousness... Thank you for sharing. May HIS Favor & Peace rest upon you Blessings!

This is good Lady LaShonda. You have spoken the truth in Boldness and Authority. Pastoring and leading God's people is no easy task. One must study and be locked in with God to bring deliverance to the church. You've spoken well!

AMEN AMEN AMEN!!! i believe the most important person is the lost!!!! frustrated with the holier than thou people right now that arent getting it!!!


Kyles 4 years ago

While it is not my goal to down play your frustrations, it is important to consider the scripture below.

Matthew 7

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again

Jesus is speaking against being judgmental, that is, judging motives and the inner man, which only God can know.

I would like to encourage, when sharing information such as this over the internet you are planting seeds into the lives of others. It is always good to give prayerful consideration concerning the deposits we make as we too are held accountable. It is also wise to be careful in not becoming a stumbling block to those that are weak in the faith (not as mature, or in lack of revelation due to relationship with the father).

In some cases your words may have validity, however sometimes if we are not careful concerning the spirit in which the message is given, it can have a negative outcome or your good can be evilly spoken of.

I would encourage those that are apt to so quickly agree, to try the spirit by the spirit and see if it be of God. God's spirit is easy to entreat and even those cases where rebuke is necessary it should still be done in the spirit of meekness, love and humility. If this is the case those that may be guilty of what you are addressing may be more readily to receive and repent.

Finally, let's pray for one another, encourage, lift up, build and have compassion, least you find yourself doing the very same thing you are accusing someone else of as we are not exempt from falling short as we all live in a glass house and can't and is unable to throw a stone.

With the love of Christ I speak blessing in your life and healing to all of you that have been ill treated.

Remember God does knows all and sees all and is able to handle all that miss-use his children so we need not worry.

Kyles....I just want you to know that the issues I addressed in this hub are valid issues that have become widespread in most churches here in America. I just specifically spoke on the behalf of the victims that were unfortunately pulled into type of environment in the church. As a fully consecrated, ordained, licensed, and affirmed Apostle in the Lord's church, one of my duties is to bring governmental order to the church. Apostle Paul's ministry was dedicated soley for that purpose. Each epistle to the churches housed all kinds of judgements against those who do not live Christian lives as prescribed by the word of God. We do need to worry about these things....The purpose of this hub was to inform these issues do exist.

And me personally, because I hold all my teachings to heart, I've learned to sacrifice....Never will I ever...and never have I ever used any of my ministers to finance my lifestyle...You are replying to a leader who owns 2 pairs of shoes...1 for church....1 for everyday....5 good church suits....a car brought from an auction that is 16 years old and was not new when purchased....I live in a two bedroom Townhouse with no washer and dryer...I financially can not afford to keep my hair sharp, and nails done...and wear the latest...and through all my struggles financially, I never asked my members for a single red cent...So messages like these I can preach because I live without till God provide otherwise...I pray daily that the Lord will send great people who would bless me financially so that I can be more of a blessing to others...And Just like Apostle Paul...I don't ask for a thing yet I preach the gospel to thousands..FREE OF CHARGE....and I do this because its my reasonable service to the Lord...

Blessing to you sister..I understand your state of frustration.Clicks are a work of the devil within the church. How I wish folks would put this energy in serving the church and Christ. It's in ever church across America, The devil is trying to divide the church with clicks or what ever he can...But the Church will prevail...and go on. I look at them and say WHY LORD? Why does the people feel the need to be in one? What are they lacking in you? We need to get our focus totally on the LORD..and not on ourselves...too me a click is a detraction, from total surrendering your self to the Lord...and dieing to this world. When someone is in a click the attention is on you, that it is the need to be made feel important or expected... We are not going to be expected by this world...for HIS name sake. It is not about US it is ALL about HIM. And that is where our focus and desire should be. I have put it in my heart tonight to pray this click spirit out of our church. Believing God will do the work.

Blessing.
