Ministry For Men Praises Only!

To Be Seen Of Men, And, You Know Who You Are!!!

 

Apostle James R, Winfree, Sr, I Am Mandated By The Lord To Cultivate, Enlighten, Empower, God's Nations Son's And Daughters In His Love:

Signs You Are Seeking Your Own Glory and Not God’s

 

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted” (Matthew 23:12)

 

 

 

Jesus Christ, They hated Him because He refused to let them get away with their phony religious ways just as ministers and, also religious people of our days!

 

If there was one thing Jesus despised, it was the very thing every Pharisee majored in at seminary: showing off. Another word for it is "self-righteousness." The Messiah unsheathed His sharp sword of truth that day, exposing their pride. Like never before, the smug show-offs were put in their place!

 

Listen to Matthew 6:1: "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them, all of your ministries, preaching and your teachings and, giving"

 

In other words, stop showing off! Stop calling attention to your righteousness! And then, to make the warning stick, our Lord gave three specific examples of how people show off their own righteousness so that others might have the praises of men.

 

In Matthew 6:2 Jesus says, "So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you." In other words, when you perform acts of charity or assist someone in need, keep it quiet. Remain anonymous. Jesus promises that "your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you" (6:4).

 

In Matthew 6:5 Jesus talks about "when you pray." He warns us against being supplication show-offs who stand in prominent places and mouth meaningless mush to be seen and heard. A show-off loves syrupy words. He's got the technique for sounding high and holy down pat. But Jesus says: Don't show off when you talk with the Father.

 

In Matthew 6:16 Jesus says, "Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do." Fasting is when the show-off really hits his stride! He works overtime trying to appear humble and sad, hoping to look hungry and exhausted like some freak who just finished walking across the Sahara that afternoon. Instead, we ought to look and sound fresh, clean, and completely natural.

 

Our Lord reserved His strongest and longest sermon not for struggling sinners or discouraged disciples but for hypocrites . . . for glory religious ones. Unfortunately, most of them never change because they don't hear what He says to them. Show-offs, you see, are terribly hard-of-hearing.

 

Is your righteousness showing off? Listen to His words His sons and, daughters!

 

Jesus reserved His longest sermon not for struggling sinners but for glory religious ones. Amen.

 

Let Us Come Together And Faithfully Pray As One Heavenly Family In Jesus Christ, Of All Nations.
