Mark 9:42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones -those who believe in me – to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. 43 if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed……
To every believer, Christians who have made it their life’s work to discourage new converts, here is what the Lord says. ” it would be better for you to have a large millstone hung around your neck and be thrown into the sea”.
To every leaders with influence and authority, if you have been a source of discouragement to another believer in their walk with God this is what Jesus is saying to you, ” it would be better for you to have a large millstone hung around your neck and be thrown into the sea”.
It is so easy to use your position and influence as a source of discouragement, for power corrupt and absolute power corrupt absolutely. Many Pastor have fallen into error here and knoweth it not. When you do not understand or have full knowledge of what has transpired, or is happening before your very eyes do not be rash and pass judgement, or speak in such a way as to grieve another’s spirit.
Seek guidance from the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, He will guide you to the truth of the matter and you will save yourself the consequence of standing against God. And if it is of Satan, you will be guided aright. It is a dangerous thing to take a stand contrary to the plan and purpose of God.
Kanye West, knowing his past, and seeing him now proclaiming Jesus as King should be a thing of joy and cause us to ask God to perfect what he has started in him. This is not a time to pass snide remarks, judge the validity of his salvation, the salvation of all that have heard him and have been led by the Holy Spirit to declare Jesus as King, Savior and Master, or ask for proofs, signs, and all sort.
No one who can declare Jesus as King and Lord of Lords without The Holy Spirit. Just like the Holy Spirit worked in you Reverend, Bishop, Pastor, Evangelist to declare Jesus as King, He is working in many that do not look like you and I in our lifestyle to declare thus.
Embrace and do not cause to stumble, do not discourage anyone who call Jesus Christ Savior, King, Lord and Master! Selah!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
