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.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
