God Called Preachers Part II (Invading the kingdom of Satan)

What is the the Divine purpose of a God called Preacher?

Simply put the Divine purpose of a God called Preacher is to boldly and fearlessly invade the Kingdom of Satan with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God!

According to the words of the Lord Jesus Christ this good news of the Kingdom is to be preached throughout the entire world.

Some of theses Preachers will stand before thousands and tell the good news of the Kingdom and how one may become a Kingdom Citizen. Others may share the Gospel over a cup of coffee or tea while visiting a friend, neighbor or relative. However all will follow the example of the Apostles of the first century by speaking of the power of the cross for salvation.

1Corinthians 1:17-29 (KJV)

17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

We see from the above scriptures that education is not necessarily a requirement to be a God called Preacher, not to say that an educated person is excluded from this calling of God.

Romans 10:11-15 (KJV)

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

This section is dealing with Preachers who have been sent by God to fearlessly invade the kingdom of Satan with words that are inspired from the Throne of God with the power to impart faith so those who will to believe are saved into the Kingdom of God.

In Romans 10:17 (KJV)

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The Greek word for “word” in this scriopture is the word Rhema not Logos. The word Logos refers to the written word of God while the word Rhema refers to the from the living Christ which comes by way of Holy Spirit.

HELPS Word-studies
4487 rhḗma (from 4483 /rhéō, “to speak”) – a spoken word, made “by the living voice” (J. Thayer). 4487 /rhḗma (“spoken-word”) is commonly used in the NT (and in LXX) for the Lord speaking His dynamic, living word in a believer to inbirth faith (“His inwrought persuasion”).

Ro 10:17: “So faith proceeds from (spiritual) hearing; moreover this hearing (is consummated) through a rhēma-word (4487 /rhḗma) from Christ” (Gk text).

[See also Gal 3:2,5 which refers to “the hearing of faith” (Gk text) – i.e. a spiritual hearing that goes with the divine inbirthing of faith.]

God called Preachers speak words from heaven inspired by the Holy Spirit having the divine power to deliver salvation to the lost of both Jew and Greek. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved into the Kingdom of God by way of the power of the Holy Spirit.

God Called Preachers

Who are God called preachers?

The God called preacher has been called, equipped, and sent by God who hold back nothing that is of benefit to those who hear their words.

One good example of a God Called Preacher is when Peter preached before thousands on the day of Pentecost. Peter boldly stood up before the very men who had crucified Jesus Christ. Peter filled with the spirit spoke words regarding the who, what, and where of this Jesus of Nazareth. Peter held back nothing that was being revealed to him by the spirit of God.

Acts 2:22 – 24 (KJV)

22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

Peter had traveled with Christ as He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout all Galilee. Peter had heard the Lord state that the words he spoke and the works that he did were not of him but of the Father.

Further insight into the words of Christ concerning preaching may be found in Matthew 10:27:

Matthew 10:27 (KJV)

“What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.”

The following is from Clarke’s Commentaries:

Matthew 10:27
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
What I tell you in darkness – A man ought to preach that only which he has learned from God’s Spirit, and his testimonies; but let him not pretend to bring forth any thing new, or mysterious. There is nothing that concerns our salvation that is newer than the new covenant; and in that there are, properly speaking, no mysteries: what was secret before is now made manifest in the Gospel of the ever-blessed God.

See Ephesians 3:1-12.

What ye hear in the ear – The doctor who explained the law in Hebrew had an interpreter always by him, in whose ears he softly whispered what he said; this interpreter spoke aloud what had been thus whispered to him.

Lightfoot has clearly proved this in his Horae Talmudicae, and to this custom our Lord here evidently alludes. The spirit of our Lord’s direction appears to be this: whatever I speak to you is for the benefit of mankind, – keep nothing from them, declare explicitly the whole counsel of God; preach ye, (κηρυξατε proclaim), on the house-tops.

Today it is the same spirit of God which enables men and women like us to preach The Gospel of the Kingdom of God. This good news of the kingdom which began with John the Baptist and continued through the Apostles and followers of Christ is still a viable message the Lord commissioned His followers speak to the world.
