    8/13 Keep Your Mouth Off God's Anointed (Numbers 12:1-2) Be careful of how you speak about God's appointed leaders. It will lead God to come down and deal with you. The encouraging word and video devotional with Minister Jeff Fannell. For others visit On Good Ground International Ministries
  2. Heres a hypothetical question;
    Your church is suffering, there is lots of money coming in to it but none being spent on the church and your church is suffering because of it, but your leader, who does not work in a worldly Job, has a nice car, nice house and a nice bank account...
    What would you do?
  3. Thanks for taking the time to write. Your hypothetical presents very
    interesting and valid points. Let's look at it again: the church is
    suffering financially, even though money is coming in. The leader, who
    does not have a secular job, has a nice car, nice house and nice bank
    account. You say we need to see the "wrong in that and ... not support
    it." The "wrong" obviously is not the leader having nice things, but must
    be how he or she got them, with the conclusion being that the leader has
    either misappropriated church funds or has set up the church for his or her
    personal benefit. If there's proof of misconduct, then certainly action
    should be taken consistent with church by-laws. However, we must be
    careful not to jump to conclusions, which is often the case. The point of
    the video is to caution members from speaking on things without an adequate
    basis. This happens far too often and it brings the member out of God's
    will, causes divisions and confusion, and often leads to disastrous
    results. What if there is proof of misconduct at play? Even here, members
    must be careful in what they say. Saul was "wrong" for trying to kill
    David and for how he was running the nation. Still, David would not speak
    against him or raise his sword against him even when he had the chance.
    Why? Because David recognized that Saul was still anointed by God as
    leader, and he trusted God to handle Saul's iniquity in His timing. David
    didn't stay around and support Saul, but neither did he put his mouth or
    his hand upon him. There are valuable lessons to be learned in that. - Min. Jeff
  4. I do understand what you mean..
    We do have to be careful.. I just wanted to also make it clear that what Paul says stands...

    Of course, we dont just hastily do that, but its clear in the NT that we must be careful of people;
    What I have got out of the NT is; We need to check peoples fruit if we are in doubt..
    The question I asked was more about fruit, in such a case the fruit coming about is not good, it seems to be all worldly fruit..
    I know in the past, I have looked at a pastors car, I wont lie...
    I noticed how blessed his church was, so I thought why not just have a look at the car he drives, well it cant be worth more than 1,000 dollars.
    I dont know, I guess its hard, something that would need to be prayed about and defiantly wouldn't act on without conformation from God, but the NT does say we need to be careful of people.
  5. Praise God! Just wanted you to know that more commentary has been posted on Facebook. Look for us "On Good Ground International Ministries"
