    Two Types of Ministries Today

    Two Types of Ministries Today

    Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV)And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
    These are the gift ministries to the body of Christ. They are charged with bringing the whole body in alignment with the expressed purpose and will of God which is to bring each member, in conjunction with one another, as holy and anointed and approved by God.
    However, along the way, some have departed from obeying ALL God commanded and have followed after their own hearts, polluting the Holy Word. These have strayed by attending the desires and will of man above the will of God. They have not yielded all to God but have compromised the truth with a lie. Soon the time came that God made a difference between those who served God faithfully and those who did not.
    Ezekiel 44:10-14 (NKJV)10 “And the Levites who went far from Me, when Israel went astray, who strayed away from Me after their idols, they shall bear their iniquity. 11 Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, as gatekeepers of the house and ministers of the house; they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. 12 Because they ministered to them before their idols and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity, therefore I have raised My hand in an oath against them,” says the Lord God, “that they shall bear their iniquity. 13 And they shall not come near Me to minister to Me as priest, nor come near any of My holy things, nor into the Most Holy Place; but they shall bear their shame and their abominations which they have committed. 14 Nevertheless I will make them keep charge of the temple, for all its work, and for all that has to be done in it.
    Many Levites who were called and separated to serve God in His Holy Sanctuary, strayed from following God and began serving other gods; gods from other nations, gods they did not know. As it was then, so it is today, many of those set apart to serve the One true God, have strayed and began to serve the gods of gold and riches, gods of selfishness, gods of convenience, gods of popularity and power. These breaches in trust they have made did not go unnoticed by God although He had withheld judgment, they convinced themselves there was nothing for them to worry about. They reasoned in themselves that if God has not judged immediately, then He will not judge at all. So in this way, they became self-deluded in their thinking.
    But God saw this, their iniquity but continued to allow them to serve in His church. Why? It is because this has already been judged long ago in the verses found in Ezekiel 44. Those who strayed away would be allowed to keep their charge of God’s house but not be allowed to enter His Holy places. They would also be disqualified by God from teaching God’s people the difference between the holy and the unholy and will not be able to cause God’s people to know the difference between what is clean versus unclean.
    The ministry of the outer court is where the sin offerings took place. So the ministers today who have strayed in their hearts away from the holiness of God will still be able to minister the salvation message. However, they will not be equipped to train up God’s people in discipleship. This ministry will remain for those who walk in holiness before the Lord and have not stained their garments.
    The two types of ministries of today are differentiated by their power of God’s Holy Spirit anointing. The fruits of these ministries are also apparent. Those who are the Zadok ministry will be able to minister to the Lord in a level of worship that brings in His presence while the others cannot. Another difference lies in the fruits you see in the members of these churches. To the ones without God’s Holy Spirit anointing, never seem to grow into maturity but tend to remain babes in Christ without the ability to discern between what is unclean and clean or what is holy or unholy. The others, from the Zadok priesthood, have members who are able to reach maturity, rightly dividing the word of truth and are able to disciple new believers. These know the difference between the holy and unholy and clean and unclean are gifted in ministering these truths. There is also a marked difference in their ministry as signs and wonders do follow after them. The others may try to minister as these do but cannot succeed for God’s anointing is not with them.
    I recommend that all believers choose the church(s) they wish to join using extreme prejudice. There are many charlatans and others who use the word of God as a means to profit themselves. There are those with false anointing with false signs and false wonders. These are to be avoided at all costs. The ONLY way to know for sure which church you should join yourself to is to listen to the Spirit of the Lord direct you to the one you should become a part of. He is the ONLY One who can be trusted. It is very important that you nurture your ability to hear His voice accurately. The best way to do this is to try every spirit that speaks to you. When you were born again, you heard the sound of your own voice and could discern God’s voice. The enemy’s voice sounds very similar to your own voice in that he speaks to you of your fleshly desires. Read God’s word so that you may learn the language of the Spirit of God. Test every word until you have removed yourself far from the voice of the enemy and even your own voice. Seek to hear God’s voice only and stand ready to obey whatever He tells you. His voice ALWAYS aligns with His word. Do not be afraid to ask Him to confirm what He tells you to do with His written word. He is always more than glad to show you.
    Remember, there are two kinds of ministers today.
    Those operating outside the holy places of God.
    Those who operate in the holy places and are able to minister to God and teach what the differences are between holy & clean versus unholy & unclean.
