This is why the word says that under the New Covenant no man will teach another saying to know God . . .Now compare this to God saying the words of such a sermon to them directly and they "hear" God saying the words... as clearly as Ananias receiving his instructions. Who could not submit? Who would not feel convicted and not be accountable when they can hear God. Jonah didn't and he became fishfood
The reason is because the Holy Spirit teaches. Now, this doesn't mean that we don't need preachers. It just means that a preacher can preach all day long, but unless a person is open to receiving it by the Spirit of God they will not be taught. This is what happened on the occasions I'm referencing above. If someone just gets offended then they are not open to receiving from the Spirit of God. They will not be taught, and they will not have the ears to hear.
Agreed. Folks want to be anointed for ministry but they don't want to submit to the One who does the anointing.People don't want to be in submission to God. Some don't exercise the faith to handle it. They even ask God why don't they have a purpose in His will and God is saying... BECAUSE YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH (in a Jack Nickelson voice).
