In the next month or so I am going to blog about what 'is' and what 'is not' of God, according to the Holy Bible.
Am I a minister?
According to scripture, a minister's job is to be responsible for every soul that God gives them. Those that on a regular basis come to hear them speak or preach. A shepherd caring for his flock.
Every word that comes out of their mouth should be what the Lord put on their mind. This way every person gets what 'they need' to hear from the Lord. In the KJV Bible, it says in James 3 verse 1 'My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation'. 'Masters' means that you are responsible for others and 'greater condemnation' means that you get in more trouble for mistakes than others would! This means that if you don't have to be a pastor of a church, don't be one! If God doesn't call you to be a pastor - don't do it!
God holds ministers accountable for every word they say to his sheep. He Loves every person that comes through his church doors, everyone that made a sacrifice to get to his place of worship and God wants to make sure each and every person gets to hear from him and experience him.
If God has called a minister, then they don't get by with anything. Meaning if they say something in their own spirit, then that mistake is multiplied by the number of people who hear it. God will discipline them and condemn them until they correct it with EVERY person who heard it!
God is so strict with His ministers that if the minister gets carnal and starts blabbing at the mouth, if even one person leaves the church or leaves the faith in God, then that minister can lose his salvation, and will spiritually grow no further!! A calling to be a minister IS THAT SERIOUS.
Church is not about how good the choir sings, even though there are people that go to church for the music, in God's house music is a part of the whole experience. EVERY person that is seeking God and comes to God's churches will have an experience with God - in the music, in the preaching, in the prayer line, and in the testimonies.
Stay tuned for more!

"My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body."
James 3, verses 1 and 2
