The Preachy Preacher
“Don’t tell me what to do!” demands the person who’s telling me what to do.
However, I won’t get into how contradictory and hypocritical that demand is. Rather, I am writing as to the reason for my particular page, Devotional And Inspirational. In fact, if we’re getting technical, then this involves this whole site.
Why bother, you ask.
The more you know, I say.
No one cares, you insist.
Well it’s my page, I reply.
So here we are, me giving the reason as to why I am the preaching preacher who writes Bible verses and share short sermons on the scriptures.
It’s because I want to, and because I believe that every faithful Christian should share the precious, soul-saving Word of God. It is a divine Commandment, Appointment and Calling for a believer to witness the Living Word.
Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
The Great Commission of The Lord Jesus Christ; a christian does not argue with it but to obey it. “Go and teach, ” He commanded. Well, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, so why not expand and teach all the knowledge and wisdom at my disposal? At best, souls are saved. At worst, scoffers jeer at The Word. The former is a joyful miracle; the latter a judgement of God.
A witnessing Christian knows of the trials and difficulties in preaching the Word. The most mild rebuke I had read to a believer’s expression of Faith was, “Stop. No one needs you to start preaching here. Your God is a fake anyway.” That mocking comment got so many likes,applause and similar posts, whereas sadly the believer’s had only a few. The other sad thing was, the believer wasn’t even ‘preaching’ but expressing his gratitude to his Lord for making such an amazing thing. It was a ‘open comment’ page.
“Stop preaching….Don’t preach here… I don’t want your sermon…Don’t tell me how to live my life….Eh there is no God….God is not real….Hail satan, your God is not good enough…”
That last one always gets me in the soul, that a human soul would give obeisance (even if in joke) to the devil but rejects The One who is Master over all, even over that old goat. Especially over that old liar and he knows it too, and that his time is short. So the crafty old fly is making sure people hate all the preaching of The Word because The Word is Truth, and he is the father of lies.
I’ve done my preaching in real life, and now I have this page for the same thing. Speaking the True Word of God is not popular with the mainstream crowd. They boo, jeer and might try to run you off. But if you’ve got something very important to say, then say it. Nothing is more important than sharing the Love, Forgiveness and Salvation of God, to see a soul come to repentance and be saved from the devil.
So be that preacher, and preach the Word. Amen.
