Word for Today:  March 8


Preaching is done by men.  By women.  By children.  By twice-born, Holy Ghost appointed and anointed human beings.  Not by angels.  Not by Seraphim or Cherubim.  Not by heavenly hosts…  but by Human beings who are full of the Holy Ghost and consumed by Fire.  Those who are Called.  Who are Commissioned.  Who are Ordained by God.  Who are Selected.  Who are Sent.

Jesus was a Preacher.  He was called.  He was appointed.  He was anointed.  He was sent.  First and foremost, Jesus was a Preacher.  He had Fire in His bones, Oil on His head and a Sword in His mouth.

However, His outward qualifications would not be adequate to place Him in a modern ministry.  His demeanor would not qualify Him to be a successful preacher in the setting of today’s church.  His education would be lacking and His experience inadequate to qualify Him for a successful pastoral position in today’s religious world.

He did not dress like a preacher.  He did not keep company with preachers or with people preachers normally keep company with.  He did not act like a preacher, talk like a preacher, or live like a preacher.  He did not have a preacher’s education or a preacher’s credentials.  Yet, He was and is the Son of God.  He was a Word preacher…  Ahead of His time but in tune with His Father.  He was literally consumed with His Call and ready to Die for His Cause.

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?   Rom 10:14
