"MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN."

   MATTHEW 22:14

 

 

GOD CREATED HUMANS; TO BE IN HIS IMAGE.

GENESIS 1:26

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness."

HEBREWS 7:26

"For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled."

 

NOT EVERYONE HAS DESIRED; TO BE IN GOD'S IMAGE.

THE RESULT OF THAT DECISION ENDS; IN ETERNAL DAMNATION.

JOHN 5:28-29

"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear

his voice,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that

have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."

 

PEOPLE ARE DIRECTED BY GOD TO COME OUT OF THE WORLD,

AND INTO HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH;

THROUGH THE CROSS OF CHRIST.

JOHN 10:7

"Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep."

 

 

 

THE MAP ABOVE SHOWS ALL PEOPLE ARE BORN INTO THE WORLD, AND ARE HEADING

INTO HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE.

ROMANS 5:12

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed

upon all men, for that all have sinned."

 

THE VESSEL MAP REPRESENTS THE TABERNACLE MOSES ERECTED; BY GOD'S DIRECTION.

EXODUS 40:1-33

"And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent

of the congregation.

3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the

vail.

4 And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set

in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

5 And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the

testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

6 And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the

tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.

7 And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar,

and shalt put water therein.

8 And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the

court gate.

9 And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is

therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

10 And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and

sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

12 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, and wash them with water.

13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify

him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may

minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an

everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.

16 Thus did Moses: according to all that the Lord commanded him, so did he.

17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of

the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

18 And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the

boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.

19 And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the

tent above upon it; as the Lord commanded Moses.

20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark,

and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:

21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering,

and covered the ark of the testimony; as the Lord commanded Moses.

22 And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the

tabernacle northward, without the vail.

23 And he set the bread in order upon it before the Lord; as the Lord had

commanded Moses.

24 And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against

the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

25 And he lighted the lamps before the Lord; as the Lord commanded Moses.

26 And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:

27 And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the Lord commanded Moses.

28 And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.

29 And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent

of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering;

as the Lord commanded Moses.

30 And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and

put water there, to wash withal.

31 And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:

32 When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near

unto the altar, they washed; as the Lord commanded Moses.

33 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set

up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work."

 

CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS TO MAKE AN EXIT FOR HUMANITY, TO

COME OUT OF THE WORLD, AND INTO GOD'S KINGDOM.

COLOSSIANS 1:20

"And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all

things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven."

 

ONCE YOU ARRIVE IN GOD'S KINGDOM, YOU WILL SEE THE FIRST CIRCLE.

THIS CIRCLE IS THE ALTAR, THE REFINING OF CHRIST TAKES PLACE HERE.

OUR FLESH IS CRUCIFIED TO THE WORLD.

REVELATION 3:18

"I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and

white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness

do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see."

PSALM 66:10-12

"For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and

through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place."

ISAIAH 48:9-11

"For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for

thee, that I cut thee not off.

10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the

furnace of affliction.

11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my

name be polluted?  And I will not give my glory unto another."

JEREMIAH 9:7

"Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them;

for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?"

DANIEL 11:35

"And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and

to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time

appointed."

DANIEL 12:10

"Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do

wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."

MALACHI 3:2-4

"But who may abide the day of his coming?

And who shall stand when he appeareth?

For he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons

of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an

offering in righteousness.

4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be

pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years."

ZECHARIAH 13:9

"And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is

refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will

hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God."

JOB 23:10

"But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come

forth as gold."

 

THE SECOND CIRCLE REPRESENTS THE WATER,

WHICH IS THE WASHING OF THE WATER;

BY THE WORD OF GOD.

WE MUST READ THE WORD DAILY.

EPHESIANS 5:25-27

"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave

himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or

wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."

LUKE 3:16-17

"John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one

mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose:

he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather

the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable."

JOHN 17:17

"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

ROMANS 12:1-2

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your

bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable

service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of

your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect,

will of God."

 

THE LAST SECTION, YOU WILL SEE THREE CIRCLES.

THIS IS WHERE THE OFFICES OF MINISTRY ARE LOCATED.

MINISTRY IS ESTABLISHING GOD ON THE EARTH, FOR ALL HUMANITY.

EPHESIANS 4:11-16

"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists;

and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying

of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the

Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness

of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and

carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning

craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love,

may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which

every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part,

maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love."

1 CORINTHIANS 12:28

"And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets,

thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments,

diversities of tongues."

 

IN THIS LOCATION:

1. THE FEEDING OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.

1 CORINTHIANS 5:6-8

"Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth

the whole lump?

7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are

unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of

malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."

 

2. BEING THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

MATTHEW 5:14

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid."

 

3. OFFERING PRAYERS WHICH ARE HEARD, AND ANSWERED BY GOD.

HEBREWS 5:5-7

"So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said

unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.

6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of

Melchisedec.

7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications

with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and

was heard in that he feared."

DANIEL 10:1-14

"In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel,

whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time

appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding

of the vision.

2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.

3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did

I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of

the great river, which is Hiddekel;

5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in

linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning,

and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished

brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.

7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not

the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide

themselves.

8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no

strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I

retained no strength.

9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words,

then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.

10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon

the palms of my hands.

11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words

that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And

when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.

12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst

set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words

were heard, and I am come for thy words.

13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days:

but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained

there with the kings of Persia.

14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the

latter days: for yet the vision is for many days."

PSALM 34:17

"The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their

troubles."

 

THE MINISTRY  OFFICES ARE APOSTLES, PASTORS, EVANGELISTS,

PASTORS AND TEACHERS.

EPHESIANS 4:11-16

"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists;

and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying

of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the

Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness

of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and

carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning

craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love,

may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which

every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part,

maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love."

1 CORINTHIANS 12:28

"And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets,

thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments,

diversities of tongues."

 

IN ORDER TO BECOME A MINISTER, AND IN AN OFFICE OF MINISTRY;

YOU MUST BE CHOSEN BY CHRIST.

MATTHEW 22:14

"For many are called, but few are chosen."

 

THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CHOSEN, HAVE GONE THROUGH MUCH TO ARRIVE;

IN THE MINISTRY LOCATION.

THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH THEIR OWN DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION.

PHILIPPIANS 2:4-9

"Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of

others.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant,

and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became

obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is

above every name."

 

THE CHOSEN ONES HAVE:

1. REPENTED.

ACTS 2:38

"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the

name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of

the Holy Ghost."

PROVERBS 28:13

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh

them shall have mercy."

 

2. BECAME; BORN AGAIN.

JOHN 3:6-7

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is

spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

MATTHEW 18:2-3

"And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as

little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

 

3. SUBMIT TO THE REFINING PROCESS; OF CHRIST.

REVELATION 3:18

"I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich;

and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy

nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou

mayest see."

 

4. MADE THEMSELVES CLEAN, BY THE WASHING OF; THE WORD.

REVELATION 19:7

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of

the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready."

 

5. CAME OUT; OF THE WORLD.

2 CORINTHIANS 6:14-18

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath

righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with

darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth

with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple

of the living God;

as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God,

and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and

touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith

the Lord Almighty."

 

6. SEPERATE THEMSELVES; FROM SIN.

LEVITICUS 15:31

"Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they

die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them."

 

7. KILLED; THEIR BEASTS.

PROVERBS 9:1-2

"Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished

her table."

 

8. OVERCOME; THE DEVIL.

1 JOHN 2:12-14

"I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his

name's sake.

13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the

beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked

one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the

beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the

word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one."

 

9. WEAR DAILY; THE ARMOUR OF GOD.

EPHESIANS 6:11-18

"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles

of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against

powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in

high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to

withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the

breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the

word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching

thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints."

 

10. DEPENDENT ON GOD; FOR ALL OF LIFE.

2 PETER 1:2-3

"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and

of Jesus our Lord,

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto

 life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue,"

PROVERBS 8:20-21

"I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:

21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."

 

11. WERE FAITHFUL IN THE ASSIGNMENTS GIVEN THEM; BY THE LORD.

PROVERBS 14:35

"The king's favour is toward a wise servant: but his wrath is against him that

causeth shame."

MATTHEW 24:45-51

"Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over

his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the

drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him,

and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites:

there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

 

12. DRANK THE CUP AND BAPTIZED WITH THE BAPTISM; OF CHRIST.

MATTHEW 20:20-23

"Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping

him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these

my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in

thy kingdom.

22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink

of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am

baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized

with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on

my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared

of my Father."

 

13. FAITHFULLY OBEY GOD; AND REPENT WHEN NECESSARY.

1 JOHN 1:8-10

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to

cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is

not in us."

2 SAMUEL 20:3

"And David came to his house at Jerusalem; and the king took the ten women

his concubines, whom he had left to keep the house, and put them in ward, and

fed them, but went not in unto them. So they were shut up unto the day of their

death, living in widowhood."

 

14. PERFECT; HOLINESS.

2 CORINTHIANS 7:1

"Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from

all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

 

15. LIVE; BY FAITH.

"The just shall live by faith."

 

16. REMAIN; AFTER TRYING.

DANIEL 12:10

"Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do

wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall

understand."

PSALM 105:16-19

"Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of

bread.

17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him."

LUKE 22:31-32

"And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you,

that he may sift you as wheat:

32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted,

strengthen thy brethren."

 

17. SURVIVE AND OVERCOME; TESTING.

MATTHEW 4:1-11

"Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the

devil.

2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an

hungered.

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God,

command that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle

of the temple,

6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is

written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands

they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth

him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and

worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt

worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him."

GENESIS 22:1-18

"And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said

unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and

get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon

one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two

of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt

offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and

the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his

son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them

together.

7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said,

Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the

lamb for a burnt offering?

8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:

so they went both of them together.

9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an

altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on

the altar upon the wood.

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham,

Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto

him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy

son, thine only son from me.

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram

caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and

offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah jireh: as it is said to

this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.

15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done

this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed

as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and

thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou

hast obeyed my voice."

 

18. LIVE IN SUBMISSION; TO GOD.

JAMES 4:7

19. PROVEN.

DEUTERONOMY 33:8

"And of Levi he said, Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy holy one,

whom thou didst prove at Massah, and with whom thou didst strive at the

waters of Meribah."

1 CORINTHIANS 3:13-15

"Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because

it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what

sort it is.

14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive

a reward.

15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself

shall be saved; yet so as by fire."

 

20. WORTHY.

MATTHEW 10:37-38

"He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that

loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."

 

21. GIVE NO PLACE; TO THE DEVIL

EPHESIANS 4:27

"Neither give place to the devil."

 

22. DEPART; INIQUITY.

2 TIMOTHY 2:19

"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal,

The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name

of Christ depart from iniquity."

 

23. HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT;

BECAUSE OF THEIR OBEDIENCE TO GOD.

ACTS 5:30-32

"The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.

31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for

to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost,

whom God hath given to them that obey him."

ACTS 2:22

"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God

among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the

midst of you, as ye yourselves also know."

27. FIND REST IN; AND WITH CHRIST.

MATTHEW 11:28-30

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:

and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

 

28. LOOK FORWARD; TO HEAVEN.

PHILIPPIANS 1:20-24

"According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall

be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall

be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall

choose I wot not.

23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be

with Christ; which is far better:

24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you."

 

29. MINISTERS KNOW THEIR REWARD IN HEAVEN; WILL BE GREAT.

2 CORINTHIANS 5:10

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one

may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done,

whether it be good or bad."

 

30. MINISTERS KNOW THEY ARE GREATLY LOVED; BY GOD.

MALACHI 3:16-18

"Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord 

hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him

for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make

up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that

serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked,

between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."

 

32. MINISTERS TAKE GOOD CARE; OF THEIR BODIES.

1 CORINTHIANS 3:16-17

"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God

dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy;

for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are."

 

MINISTRY IS NOT GIVEN TO THE ONES; WHO DESIRE A SHORTCUT.

1 CORINTHIANS 4:1-2

"Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of

the mysteries of God.

2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful."

"And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give

you that which is your own?"

and to finish his work."

THEIR CROSS, DENY THEMSELVES; AND FOLLOW CHRIST.

LUKE 9:23

"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself,

and take up his cross daily, and follow me."

 

MINISTERS EVENTUALLY ARRIVE IN; WHAT CHRIST PROMISES.

1. THE ANOINTING.

ACTS 2:22

"Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God

among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the

midst of you, as ye yourselves also know."

MARK 16:20

"And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them,

and confirming the word with signs following. Amen."

 

2. ONE HUNDRED TIMES MORE THAN THAT WHICH WAS GIVEN;

FOR THE GOSPEL.

MARK 10:29-30

"And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that

hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or

children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren,

and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the

world to come eternal life."

MATTHEW 19:27-30

"Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and

followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have

followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne

of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve

tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father,

or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an

hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first."

 

MINISTRY COMES WITH REWARDS, AND SEVERE CONSEQUENCES,

FOR UNREPENTED SIN.

BELOW ARE A FEW EXAMPLES.

A. MOSES.

DEUTERONOMY 32:48-52

"And the Lord spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,

49 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in

the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan,

which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:

50 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy

people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his

people:

51 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the

waters of MeribahKadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me

not in the midst of the children of Israel.

52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto

the land which I give the children of Israel."

 

B. KING SAUL.

1 CHRONICLES 10:13-14

"So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even

against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of

one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;

14 And enquired not of the Lord: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom

unto David the son of Jesse."

 

C. UNPROFITABLE SERVANT.

MATTHEW 25:14-30

"For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called

his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to

every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same,

and made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's

money.

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents,

saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside

them five talents more.

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast

been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter

thou into the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst

unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been

faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou

into the joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew

thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and

gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou

hast that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant,

thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not

strawed:

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and

then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance:

but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be

weeping and gnashing of teeth."

 

D. JAMES 3:1

"My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater

condemnation."

 

E. MATTHEW 26:24

"The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by

whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had

not been born."

 

F. MARK 14:21

"The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by

whom the Son of man is betrayed! Good were it for that man if he had never

been born."

 

G. ANANIAS - SAPHIRA.

ACTS 5:1-11

"But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a

certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy

Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? And after it was sold, was it not in

thine own power? Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? Thou

hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and

great fear came on all them that heard these things.

6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing

what was done, came in.

8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much?

And she said, Yea, for so much.

9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the

Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are

at the door, and shall carry thee out.

10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost:

and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried

her by her husband.

11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard

these things."

 

H. REVELATION 2:1-7

"Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that

holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the

seven golden candlesticks;

2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst

not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are

apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured,

and hast not fainted.

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy

first love.

5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do

the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove

thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes,

which I also hate.

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;

To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the

midst of the paradise of God."

 

I. REVELATION 2:12-17

"And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he

which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is:

and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those

days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you,

where Satan dwelleth.

14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that

hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block

before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to

commit fornication.

15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes,

which thing I hate.

16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against

them with the sword of my mouth.

17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;

To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give

him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man

knoweth saving he that receiveth it."

 

J. REVELATION 2:18-23

"And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the

Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like

fine brass;

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience,

and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest

that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to

seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed

unto idols.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her

into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know

that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every

one of you according to your works."

 

K. REVELATION 3:1-6

"And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that

hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou

hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die:

for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and

repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and

thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments;

and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will

not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before

my Father, and before his angels.

6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

 

L. REVELATION 3:14-19

"And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things

saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation

of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert

cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue

thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have

need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable,

and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be

rich; and white raiment,

that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not

appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."

 

M. JEREMIAH 23:1-40

"Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!

Saith the Lord.

2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed

my people;

Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them:

behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.

3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have

driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful

and increase.

4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall

fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.

5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous

Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and

justice in the earth.

6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his

name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.

7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say,

The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

8 But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house

of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven

them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake;

I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because

of the Lord, and because of the words of his holiness.

10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth;

the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and

their force is not right.

11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their

wickedness, saith the Lord.

12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness:

they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even

the year of their visitation, saith the Lord.

13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal,

and caused my people Israel to err.

14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit

adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none

doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the

inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

15 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will

feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the

prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

16 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that

prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,

and not out of the mouth of the Lord.

17 They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace;

and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart,

No evil shall come upon you.

18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard

his word?

Who hath marked his word, and heard it?

19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind:

it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

20 The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have

performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet

they prophesied.

22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words,

then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their

doings.

23 Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?

24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? Saith the Lord.

Do not I fill heaven and earth? Saith the Lord.

25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying,

I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?

Yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which

they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name

for Baal.

28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word,

let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? Saith the Lord.

29 Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh

the rock in pieces?

30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my

words everyone from his neighbour.

31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues,

and say, He saith.

32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord,

and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their

lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall

not profit this people at all, saith the Lord.

33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying,

What is the burden of the Lord?

Thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you,

saith the Lord.

34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say,

The burden of the Lord, I will even punish that man and his house.

35 Thus shall ye say everyone to his neighbour, and every one to his brother,

What hath the Lord answered? And, What hath the Lord spoken?

36 And the burden of the Lord shall ye mention no more: for every man's

word shall be his burden;

for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts

our God.

37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the Lord answered thee?

And, What hath the Lord spoken?

38 But since ye say, The burden of the Lord; therefore thus saith the Lord;

Because ye say this word,

The burden of the Lord, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say,

The burden of the Lord;

39 Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you,

and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:

40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame,

which shall not be forgotten."

 

N. MARK 9.42

"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is

better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were

cast into the sea."

 

A MINISTRY OFFICE IS NOT FOR THE WEAK, FAITHLESS AND UNDISCIPLINED.

A MINISTRY OFFICE IS NOT EASILY ATTAINED; BUT IT IS THE HIGHEST

CALLING ON EARTH.

GO FOR IT AND SERVE GOD WELL; FOR THE SOULS OF MEN.

 

ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY.
