MOST PASTORS HAVE BAD MARRIAGES

So many pastors have bad marriages, and yet they continue to teach the church how to obtain God’s breakthrough in their personal lives and be blessed! How in the world is that possible?

Let me explain.

First of all, the Scriptures clearly teach, that a pastor must manage his own family well, having children who respect and obey him.  For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God’s church? (See 1. Timothy 3:4-5)

Now, what you often see from pastors who have bad marriages is that their wives are not submissive to them, but instead they dominate and take authority over them. These ambitious wives are basically the ones who are leading the church (behind the scenes), teaching and instructing the men. This is the exact opposite of what the apostle Paul taught, namely that,
“Women should learn quietly and submissively. I do not let women teach men or have authority over them!”1. Timothy 2:10-11 NLT
It is no wonder, that there is so much confusion and disorder in the church! The Bible says,
“For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find [...]

A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

A match made in Heaven, is when God joins a man and a woman together in marriage and they become united into one! They will be one of mind, agreeing wholeheartedly with each other on the Word of God, loving Jesus Christ and one another, and working together with one mind and purpose! When it is God who puts a man and woman together, no one will be able to split them apart! It just isn’t going to happen! (See Matthew 19:5-6, Philippians 2:2)

Here is why:

“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.” James 1:17 NLT

Marriage is a gift that God alone gives to those He meant to be in it for His purpose and glory! (See 1. Corinthians 7:7)

 

 

 

 

WARNING: BE AWARE OF JUST SUBMITTING TO A CHURCH LEADER

The church, or the Body of Christ, today is split and fractured into literally countless denominations, fellowships, associations, and the like. Many of them will not allow fellowship with a brother or sister from another church or denomination. Many pastors, church leaders, and ministers tend to be very judgmental and look down their noses at others, who do not belong to the same group as they do. They are proud and arrogant. Too many are prone to “judge their brother” because of doctrinal errors on minor points (or what some might call “major points”), when they themselves have major problems with attitudes, hidden sins, and a wrong spirit. They control the flock with false teachings and doctrines, fleecing them financially, and in doing so, these leaders cause major wounds and hurts in the people!

So, before you commit or submit yourself to a church and its leader or leaders and support them financially, it is important that you should follow these guidelines:
• First of all, a church leader or pastor must be a man and not a woman! (See 1. Timothy 3:1) Why? Because the Bible does not allow women [...]

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOUL AND SPIRIT

Even though the soul and the spirit are connected, they are separable!

The Bible says in Hebrew 4:12 NLT:
“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.”
And in 1. Thessalonians 5:23 NLT, it says:
“Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.”
These passages make it very clear, that there is a distinction between the soul and the spirit.

Humans are spirit beings, who live in a body and possess a soul. The real person inside of us is our spirit. Our soul consists of our mind, will, and emotions. Our bodies are what we live in, while we are here on earth.

When Jesus Christ chooses us to become His follower, our spirit is instantly reborn and made new, as stated in 2. Corinthians 5:17:
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
