Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

It seems that a big "red flag" in a church is when an individual, usually the pastor, does all the spiritual work of the church, creating a sort of little "kingdom" over which he is ruler.

If there is one person leading all the services, doing all the praying, preaching all the sermons, teaching all the classes, conducting all the music, and prohibiting others from doing any of these things, then a kingdom exists in place of a church. That sort of control inhibits the work of the Holy Spirit to the detriment of the believers.

We must pray for our churches and pastors, that they will fulfill the instructions in the Word of God!

God Bless You!

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. To whom was the book of Revelation given and where?

Answer below.

------------------------------------------------------------

--DAILY BIBLE VERSE:

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24&25

To consider one another means to think about and inquire about one another to determine the needs of fellow believers, and in doing so will "stir up love and good works." What a wonderful concept!

--PEARLS OF WISDOM:

My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;

Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;

Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.

Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel

Proverbs 2:1-5
