Good shepherd or Hired hand
The principle of God’s work is Word and Act.
Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)
- Revealing God’s plan
We humans also plan and act in everything, even when we go to the market. So is God. He doesn’t act without his plan and purpose.
He always reveals his plan and then acts. That’s why there should be prophets. The Bible is also what the prophets wrote as they were listening to the Lord.
God is working all the time, but the work of God is seen where there’re prophets; God is not seen without the prophets.
- At the time of Moses : Manna, pillar of cloud and fire, water flowing out of rock, quails … everyday was a day of miracles.
- At the time of Joshua : It seemed God reduced his work by half.
- At the times of Judges : It seemed there was no God; sometimes he was seen.
- At the time of Eli : The word of the LORD was rare; there were not many visions before the prophet Samuel came.
- The existence of the prophet actualizes the presence of God!
Jesus, the second Moses, was the Word itself. For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. (Acts 3:22)
The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him. (Deu 18:15)
Where there’s a prophet, there’s God; without the prophet, there’s no work of God.
I pray all kingdomizers may become the prophets of God !
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law. (Pro 29:18)
The time of chaos comes without revelation. Preaching overflows in the Korean churches, but the water of life is dried up.
The pastors preach their own convictions, not the message of God. Pastor’s convictions, theology and philosophy are not the Word of God. Korea has entered the time when the word of the LORD is rare.
False prophets are prosperous, who preach, “Believe in Jesus, and you will be prosperous!”
They are all talk and no deed; sucking the blood of their flock, abusing their powers and having extramarital relationships. There should be no God to manage the mega churches in Korea as someone said.
So many pastors are going to hell!
Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' (Mt 7:22,23)
"Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. (Mt 21:31)
Why are the prostitutes entering the kingdom of God ahead of the religious leaders?
The prostitutes sell their body and earn money honestly. However, pastors sell the body of Christ and earn money; they are more wicked because they are pimps!
The hired hand is the servant who works for the money. They set up the church to make money, for they have nothing to do otherwise.
Pastors, who move to another church that pays more!
Pastors, who have millions of, billions of slush fund, sucking the blood of their flock!
- healed the sick
- cast out demons.
- fed the people with five small barley loaves and two small fish.
- stilled the storm.
However, he never said he would make his followers rich. Instead, he told them to sell the possessions, give to the poor and follow him.
I’ve met Pope Francis at the White House. He has married to the poverty at 23. His car was a cheap, crummy and small one. It looked like I could even pull or push.
After the meeting at the White House was over, he didn’t meet the Senators contrary to the expectations of Americans. But he met the homeless, washing their feet which are dirty and smelly.
He had the corrupted American churches repent.
He has also healed the heart of Koreans, who were hurt by the sinking of Sewol Ferry.
He deserves the shepherd of the 1.4 billion Catholics.
