What Isn't Planted by the Father Will be Uprooted

GOD's Flesh: And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; 
I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! [Job 19,26-17]

"Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots," [Matthew 15.13]. Jesus said, every plant--there are many who plant, and sincerely at that. I can imagine many of the planters believe their plants are the Father's plants. Like the Pharisees. They were the "licensed," titled, and legitimate spiritual leaders of the true religion at the time. 


"The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 
So you must be careful to do everything they tell you," [Matthew 23.2]

They belonged to the correct, bible based religion that found its origin in Moses, the man of God. Even Jesus vouched for the fact. And yet, they were not of the Father. Their plant was not planted by the Father. Their ministry was illegitimate in God's eyes. Though their ministry was connected to Moses and had been existing for centuries--peopled and moneyed--it was disowned by God and condemned to be pulled by the roots.

What Makes Something Planted by the Father?

A ministry planted by the Father begins and ends with him. He should be its Alpha and Omega, meaning every way and system used by the ministry is God's alone, using only Kingdom principles seen in the bible. For instance, evangelism should be initiated by the Father, not human initiative, design, or plan. "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them," [John 6.44]. True evangelism is the Father drawing people to Jesus, not us forcing or influencing people to receive Jesus. 

Human instigated evangelism can result to thousands of members and mega churches but they're not what the Father has planted. No wonder you later see these church people--products of human-driven purposes--unable to understand Kingdom principles in the bible but very active in their church ministries. They even laugh at the Word of God and basic principles in the bible. What they understand is how their church denominations operate and the money-value system---if what you do does not translate to money or "church income," it's useless. It's a failure. 

Another is, church denominationalism is not in the bible.

That's why they measure everything by how big church membership is and money and possessions. But they do not appreciate Kingdom character, values, and standards--the Jesus LIFE. Your meekness and spiritual life don't mean anything to them. The Father has pulled them by the roots.
