Five Fold Ministry - The Teacher

LIES ATTACK TRUTH

 

Perverted leadership and their followers will many times attack those that are teaching truth, and perpetuate lies concerning these faithful ones, causing division in the body of Christ. They ruin the validity of God's true ministers, causing the sheep to fall because they think their leadership is not worthy of their trust. This is especially so when a hard truth requiring change is brought forth such as, we must walk separate and holy. The false minister likes walking just the way they are and usually walks with one foot in the Kingdom and one foot in the world, so they will encourage and allow the sheep be compromising in their walk as well without warning them. Jesus however tells us, if our walk is too easy, and no changes are required, we are probably on the wrong path! In fact He, The Teacher of Righteousness, taught the correct path has a very narrow gate and there are but few that enter it.

 

Matt. 7:13-14 says

13 "Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

 

And of the leadership that set the bad example through their walk and did not seek truth to feed the sheep entrusted to them, God says:

 

Jer. 23:1

1 "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!" says the LORD.

 

HUMANISM INSTEAD OF THE RHEMA WORD

 

Not all non-productive teachers should be classified as false teachers, but simply labeled as the product of the lukewarm church. Many in the denominational church are not even Spirit-filled, and so operate entirely out of a Spirit of Intellect and human reason. Without the infilling of the Holy Spirit, things of the Spirit seem foolish to them and so the sheep are fed man's thinking instead.

 

In 1 Cor. 2:13-14 Paul backs this statement and sentiment.

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man (without the infilling of the Holy Spirit) does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

 

Again, a person that is not Spirit-filled with evidence of speaking in tongues, can only teach what they know in the natural, because the Holy Spirit is not in them to share His knowledge. They do not function in the gifts of the Spirit either, and so are unable to even recognize Word of Knowledge or Word of Wisdom and can rely only on human wisdom and man's education. The above scripture states it should be the Holy Spirit who does the teaching. Look back at I Corinthians 2:13.

 

So in closing, a good teacher, especially one called to the office, is one who dies to their own human thinking and worldly intellect to let the Spirit of God teach through him or her. They will allow the gifting vested within them, and the anointing of God that is on them, to drive truth home the way no other office can. They are ones the great Teacher, Rabboni, walks through today. Through them He will educate the flock of God concerning the knowledge of Christ, until they become the full stature of His body, so He can lead the church victoriously from Christianity to the Church Eternal.
