Are God's Ministers to be Worshipped Or Honoured?

Are God's Ministers to be Worshipped Or Honoured?

There is a significant distinction between honoring and worshiping.

Nowadays, young pastors idolize elderly pastors. This is where power loving can send you to: you will always bow before others rather than God. Honouring can be worship, but it is limited to our fellow men. 

Revelation 22:8-9

And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Even the angel Gabriel was asking John the Revelator to stop worshipping him.

Acts 10:25-26

And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.

But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.


The majority of you enjoy having power, anointing, and gifts that God gives more than loving God Himself whom we are to worship and serve. 

You've overlooked the crucial element of your calling. Now that you're compromising and crooked, like most of your fathers are,

Where does it say that we are to bow down to our fellow humans or the Apostles in worship?

You claim is what you faith directs you to do? You are mentally ill and lost!

Who bewitched you?

You now put more faith in anointing than in God. While you are in ministry, God's presence will leave you.

Please take caution. Even is angels denied it how much more humans who have recieved droplet of the anointing? 

Why do we fool ourselves?

Why do we love God's things more than Himself?

Why do we tolerate bad cultures in the Body of Christ ?

Why are young ministers doing this? 

Why are the fathers accepting this?

In the past, the Apostles would rather train the young to love God, serve God, preach Christ, and make a significant impact as they lay hands on them to preach Christ...

It's a disgrace to see men of God constantly preaching about their spiritual fathers, even more than they should preach about Christ to the congregation . 

I understand honoring and appreciating others, but now it has turned to another false doctrine that we must confront head on.

1 Peter 5:3. Don't be bossy to those people who are in your care, but set an example for them...

Awww both young and the fathers, let us be humble enough. Let us be example unto them in speech, humility and our sincerity towards God and our fellow not becoming Lord over them.

Have I imparted knowledge?

I don't care if I offended you!!!

If everything I preach all day sweetens you all the time, then I am not telling you the truth.

Don't get offended again, I say.

The majority of the Shepherds are COWARDS. 

I ask the Lord to have mercy on us. Amen

We Can Honour Our Pastors By

1. Acknowledging T

1 Thessalonians 5:12

And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

You must acknowledge them positively, respect them wherever you see them, love them, and see their presence as a blessing. Do not taint the image of those whom God has sent you. It encourages them in their service to God as well as to you, the flock.

2. Respect and admire them.

1 Thessalonians 5:13

And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselve

As a flock of sheep, you must respect and love the shepherds more. Respect them for who they are and what they stand for. Not worshiping them, but lovingly owning them for the sake of the work kindness and honour . They keep an eye on your souls. Give them the respect they deserve, and you will be blessed.

3. Give Them Double and Tangible Honour

1 Timothy 5:17

Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

You can give them money as a token of gratitude for teaching you the correct doctrine and the word of God.

They deserve our respect, but not our worship. You can give them arms, support them in various ways, and make them feel at ease while doing ministry. Make them feel pampered and content all of the time.

Romans 13:1-7

[1]Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

[2]Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

[3]For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

[4]For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

[5]Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

 [6]For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

[7]Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
