praise the lord church i greet you in the name of our lord and savior jesus christ in case you don't know me i am brother hosanna devi if you have not subscribed please subscribe to my channel hosanna ee david and also visit our website where my message is downloadable hosanna hosannatv.com i'm prompted in my heart to preach this
00:35
message today i didn't actually plan it that i'm going to do this video but the lord place is a burden in my heart and i don't want to let it go today i want to talk about a topic that some may not like but it is a burden and i have to talk about it you are the message you preach
01:05
you are the message you preach the quality of messengers has a long way to do with how people are going to receive the message balak knows this very well when he was sending people to balaam he sent the first set of people and when he did not get a good response he sent another set of people
01:45
who were more honorable than the first set of people the same message that different categories of people why is it that a lot of people think that the messenger has nothing to do with the message in my walk with god i've come to discover that god is very very much interested in the messenger as much as he is interested in the
02:21
message the way i know it is the holy spirit that impresses the word of god into the hearts of sinners into the hearts of people it is god who convinced these people he convicted them of their sins but a lot of times we see situations of people who are supposed to welcome the gospel of jesus christ making mockery of the gospel
02:52
why because the messengers failed to live up to standard the message of christ has a standard and those who must run with the message of salvation must live up to standard i'm not illegally suppressing i am not a perfectionist i believe that we are all humans but the bible that we read
03:25
tells us that many of us should not be masters as a matter of fact james chapter 3 verse 1 says my brethren be not many masters know me that we shall receive the greater condemnation that means god is going to be stricter with us when he is going to judge us you are the message you preach we see a lot of preachings today a lot of teachings today
04:00
but with little or no impact why i have come to understand that many of the people that preach christ don't live the life of christ there are so many unconverted preachers to the point that the very things that the bible condemn are the things that they practice and they go outside to tell people that repent and give your life to christ
04:33
the standard of the bible is different and the standard of their lifestyle is different yet they want to present the standard of the bible it doesn't work like that he who must preach the word must be the word himself he who must tell people to repent must be a repentant person and must be a converted soul for someone to be unconverted
05:05
and the person the same person who is raw from the world because he learns a few things if he goes into the world to convert sinners he may not be effective i want to read second corinthians chapter three verses three and four ye are peaceful ye are our episodes written in our
05:36
hearts known and read of all men for as much as ye are manifestly declared to be the episode of christ ministered by us written not with ink but with the spirit of the living god not in tables or stone but in fleshy tables of the heart
06:06
and in matthew chapter 5 13 to 17 we are told that we are the salt of the earth we live in a world that is confused people are confused a lot of people don't know what to do there are hundreds and thousands of religions in the world today people don't know which one to follow and which one not to follow
06:38
everybody is claiming right people could just wake up and declare that they have founded a new religion and they can't follow us as a matter of fact i have been thinking because of the things i see around and i have been thinking and talking to myself that it doesn't matter how bad somebody is if they come out to say the lord has called me they must get followers we are living in
07:10
a world that is confused but the bible says that we are the salt of this earth there is bitterness out there but we are to salt the lives of these people we are to flavor this world we are to preserve this world because that is what christ wants us to do we are the salt of this earth the bible goes on to say jesus christ said ye are the light of the world a time
07:42
built on a hill cannot be heated neither do people light a lamp and put it under a budget under a bowl instead put it on the stand and it gives light to everyone in the house in the same way let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven we are the light we are to give lights to people in our ways
08:16
preaching is not a difficult thing but i was telling a a church staff we worked together for about 10 years and i was telling her on phone two days ago okay yesterday i was telling her that if you are preaching if you are on the puppet and you are preaching and you are saying stop fornicating stop committing adultery and your voice is so high and then bring it down in your eyes you know in our churches many of
08:48
our churches the purpose is always higher than the peers so when you bring down your eyes and your eyes locked with a lady you are slept with before i was telling her how would you feel we supposed to be the message we preach until we become the word until we leave the word until we do the word and not just preach preachers of the
09:21
world we will never be effective in the kingdom of god we have had situations of people preaching and people are becoming angry in the congregation why because they know that the person is just reciting the words of christ and not not actually teaching them because teaching the one that is teaching has to be eat first before you can teach it
09:55
how many of us today who are preaching christ who are christians in church have been converted how many of us practice what we preach today it is more of do as i say but don't do as i do we have paul in the bible and he has this to say in philippians chapter 4 verse 9 those things which ye have
10:27
both learned and received and heard and seen in me do that means look at it he said those things that you have learned which i've taught you the one you learned from my character the things you have received the things you have heard and the ones you have seen in me
10:58
the ones you have seen in me he said do and this is the standard of christians that jesus christ actually wants who can say even though they are humans people who can come up to say what you have seen in me practice what am i trying to tell you i'm not trying to say we are perfect i'm not trying to say that uh every one of us
11:34
must be very perfect the way the very day the very moment we receive christ but what i am saying is this we must put in conscious efforts to live the life we preach to live the life of the bible so that we don't become confucianist what we are saying is not loud because it is being overshadowed by what we are doing
12:05
what we are doing sounds so loud that people don't even hear what we are saying because action sounds louder than voice how many of us can boldly say whatsoever thing you have learned and received and heard and seen in me do and in first quarter 11
12:36
verse 1 part says be imitators of me even as i also imitate christ be followers of me as i am a follower of christ he was bold to make these statements this very strong statements because he lived an exemplary life if we are doing one thing and we are telling
13:06
people to do another thing we will become more or less useless to the kingdom we will confuse people let us put in conscious efforts to do what we are preaching we have to do it first before we teach others i was told the story of a doctor who a mother met with a young boy a little boy
13:38
who loved sugar so much and then the mother took the shot to the doctor and told the doctor please doctor talk to my son you are a medical personnel he loves sugar too much he takes a number of cubes every day it is bad for his head i'm trying to explain to him but he doesn't seem to understand and then the doctor says come back again he gave them another appointment he didn't talk to them and then the mother went to
14:09
took the son to him and he said i had to ask you to come back again because i said when you came i have been taking sugar i knew it was bad but i couldn't just stop it but i have to take the challenge and stop it before i could talk to your little boy jesus christ says if there is a plank in your eyes remove that plank first before you can
14:44
see clearly to remove the dust in the eye of your neighbor let us put in conscious effort in making our lives the very image of christ let us put in conscious effort by making sure we are transformed by making sure we are converted it is very very difficult for someone who has become a preacher
15:15
for someone who has become a christian and is holding positions in church to repent of some sins especially when it has to do with telling people what you'll be doing in secret telling people your secret life so that they can help you to come out it is very very difficult because of pride because people you you don't want people to see you as uh someone who
15:45
has grown so high and is still doing some things you don't need to be ashamed it is about your relationship with christ how many of us have really repented how many of us are not confusing people we have to stand up for the work of the kingdom jesus christ called the disciples and they were with him for three years and he talked them it came to a point
16:21
that people call them christians because why because we are behaving like they are masters until we start living our lives like the master until we start dressing like the master until we start talking like a master until we become the message we preach we will continue to deceive people and confuse people remember when the people
16:53
went to capture jesus the savior the miracle worker the one that was so popular in his time that multitude could throw him and thousands of people could gather just to hear him it came to a point the very night that he was betrayed they wanted to arrest him but they did not recognize him
17:24
why because the disciples were looking just like him even though they had different faces they were dressing like him they were looking like him they were talking like him and there was a confusion in the midst of the people that wanted to arrest him judas had to go and betray him with a kiss he said the one i am going to kiss that one hold him arrest him
17:54
it would have been very very possible for the disciples to be easily recognized for jesus to be easily recognized among the disciples if they hadn't changed their physical appearance if they hadn't changed their behavior if you have been in church for years now if you have been a man of god a woman of god a prophetess
18:25
a prophet if you have been holding position in the church if you have been going for evangelism yet you have not yet repented fully please do so the bible says in the james chapter 3 verse 1 that i've read that we who are teachers who are leaders who are masters
18:55
will be judged with greater condemnation we have to continue to repent every day so people have confused baby christians those in the world the masses they have confused many more than they have confused more people than those they have affected their lives positively please let us change i remember a story
19:29
a young ma a man told that a young man two young men entered a church compound and then a woman mastered woman raised her hand and armpit unshaved hair in an armpit in a church compact the woman attends the church and the two young men saw her armpits with her hair in an armpit
20:03
and they started saying dirty things in the church compound somebody let them astray to say those things they are not even things i should be saying to you here a believer confusing unbelievers these were boys from the street let us be very very careful it is about the kingdom of god
20:39
the church is not a building it is not a an association it is not a cooperation it is a kingdom it is the kingdom of christ let us not confuse people let us do what is right i am not saying it is easy it is difficult but jesus christ says that his yoke is no body so that means he gives us the grace if we are ready to follow him thank you
