Matthew 28:18-20 King James Version (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
This really got my attention its TEACH all the nations. Not Preach.
The word teach in greek (matheteuo) you pronunce it like this math-ayt-yoo-o: This means to be a disciple of one, to follow precepts and instructions , to make a disciple, to teach, instruct,
to become a pupil, to disciple, that is enroll as scholar, be disciple.
Interesting what the word teach means in Matthew 28:19. Its not saying go preach , Jesus was saying go and teach all the nations what I have commanded you and baptize them.
Jesus really want us to make disciples , to instruct. Who did Jesus say this too , to His Apostle , to his disciples. But before He said that to them He said all power is given unto me in heaven and on earth.
So that His disciples would understand that Jesus has all authority and we as the body of Christ do as well. So we must go teach , not just win souls and leave them hanging with no one to pastor them.
That’s why its very important we know the Word of God in order to make more disciples. So we can teach the nations the truth and those things Jesus commanded so that they can follow and live what He commanded.
I am sure people by now know I like abiding by what the word of God says and I try not to teach it out of context or teach it for my own benefit like many ministers do. I teach it as it is.
If we want to be good at instructing disciples we need to take heed of what Jesus said. And what the apostles said as well since they put down the foundation in sound doctrine.
But now many are going and listening to doctrine of demons and dont know. Why does the body Christ not know they are hearing doctrines of demons? Its simple there is no love for scripture, the more you read the bible the less of a chance you have to get deceived by demonic doctrines, doctrines means teachings.
Please make the word of God your standard, your source for info, for facts, for revelation. Than when a prophesy comes youll know this is against what the Word says. So I cannot except it. Or you ll know this is exactly what the Word says so I accept it.
If you dont know the Word of God you ll be easily be deceived by false prophesy and false teachings. Look at the church in Ephesus they got to a point in discernment and knowing the word that was taught by the Apostles, that they knew how to identify false apostles. Knowledge in scriptures brings a certain spiritual discernment, The word helps you to know what is from God and is not from God.
So let learn the Word and teach it to others. Also be alert remember we are not under the convent of Moses we are not under the Law given to Moses by angels.
But we are under the new convent which came through the blood of Jesus that 1 Corinthians 11 talks about. We have to know how to rightly divide what is to be practiced now and what was for back than.
Don’t think we are not under any law , Paul said this in romans he talked about the Law of the Spirit. So in the new covent there is a law but its not what the Israelites practiced. Its the Law of the Spirit. So we cant do what we want like most christians live there christianity.
If you want to be part of the apostate church live your life the way you want, live your own gospel, find scriptures to justify you BUT if you go that route I cant guarantee you’ll be with Jesus.
Blessings love you all. Alan Davis
