Doubt your leader? Heb.13:7, 17

Insult yourselves!  Especially when you are in a church for a long time!

A. Scriptures as recorded:

1. Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God:

    watch the result of their conduct, whose faith follow. Heb.13:7

***Simply read and do what it says:

   a. Remember them which have the rule over you!  (This means remember to do what they tell you!)

   b. Who have spoken unto you the word of God!  (Compare what they preach with word of the Bible!)

   c. Watch the result of their conduct.  (Yes, be sure to watch!)

   d. Whose faith follow. (Are you following?  Never late for worship!  Man of your word! … )

2. Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that

    must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.Heb.13:17

***Thank God this following verse explains further!

   a. Obey them that have the rule over you! (You know who have the rule over you! Move on if dislike!)

   b. Submit yourselves!  (You have the choice!  You can choose go where you willing to submit…!)

***As I said other times: Never say believe Jesus but do the opposite of what Jesus said!

***Think about why Italy, England, France, Brazil…. So much more Covid-19 death than Russia and India!

   c. For they watch for your souls!  (Observe whether they really do this!)

   d. Not many of you become teachers.  Teachers will be heavier punished!  2917 James 3:1

B. In a church for a long time but doubt the leader?

1. Covid-19 rightfully exposed one’s own faith in the Lord!

2. Island City in North Eastern Oregon population is 1052.

3. Light House Pentecostal Church never stopped singing, yelling, dancing and jumping together in one place!

    Until 5 members had to check into hospital authority found they never obey stay home order!

4. 365 of them tested 236 infected with Covid-19!  Then they stop meeting together in one place!

    We claim to be the church in the Bible church of Christ afraid to meet for worship in one place? Shameful!

5. The River at Tampa Bay Church in Tampa Bay Florida with 4000 members!

    Singing, yelling, dancing together never stop!  Neighbors complain many times!

    Authority warning many times until pastor arrested ….

    They bus people in for worship bus full of people with no mask!  They had no Covid-19 problem!

6. We, with all these precautions done some still doubt?!  Where is their faith in the Lord!

    Does the Bible say God decide how long we live? Ac.17:26

C. When doubt is found in your teacher it is time to move on!

    But where or which church can you move on to?!

1. If you look for a Chinese speaking church in America, you can’t find one!

2. If you look for an English speaking church, I doubt you can find one!

3. It is time to reach out see if you can find one help their leaders to know the truth you have learned!

4. Reach out to their church leaders and show them correct translation for Matt.5:3 and John 8:31!

5. Actually this is the best time in your life!  Now since you have cumulated over $1500 contribution!

    I know church of Christ some where each week has $1000 or less contribution!

    Suddenly with your present their contribution is doubled!  They will be very impressed with you!

D. Doubt your own faith rather than your leader’s faith! Matt.14:26-31

1. When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the lake, they were terrified.

    They said: It is a ghost and cried out in fear. Matt.14:26

2. But Jesus immediately said to them: Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid. Matt.14:27

3. Peter replied: Lord, if it's you, tell me to come to you on the water. Matt.14:28

4. Jesus said: Come. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 14:29

5. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out: Lord, save me! Matt.14:30

6. Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.  (We all know what this mean!)

    He said to Peter: You of little faith!  Why did you doubt? Matt.14:31

***Take this as an opportunity to grow in your faith in the Lord! 

Conclusion: Stay in this church of Christ.  Jn.10:27-28 

Jesus said: My sheep listen to my voice. I know them, and they follow me.

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.

***I wonder myself!  How I found these scriptures!  All the glory belongs to God!

May the Lord grant you good health and peace!  Preach this July 12, 2020.
