THE ESSENCE OF SERVANTHOOD: DIVINELY INSPIRED BY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER THROUGH REV.TIMOTHY L. FAULS WHO HANDED IT TO DR. GLEN W. JOSEPH. BEFORE I FINISH THIS "ESSENCE OF SERVANT-HOOD." LET ME DIGRESS A MOMENT: THE FOLLOWING WAS GIVEN TO BROTHER FAULS OF WHICH WAS HANDED DOWN TO GLEN W. JOSEPH. WE WILL MISS BROTHER TIMOTHY WHO WAS OVERALL - A MAN THAT FIRST AND FOREMOST WAS A MINISTER OF GOD WHO LOVED HIS FAMILYAND FRIENDS. IN FACT, HE WAS PART OF "CORNERSTONE MINISTRIES ASSOCIATION." NOW LET ME INSERT THE FOLLOWING FROM REV. FAULS PAPER ON THE "GATE-KEEPERS." THIS WILL BE A SHORT INSIGHT, ONE THAT ANYONE WHO READS THIS WILL HAVE TO GO TO HIS OR HER BIBLE AND LOOK INTO: NEHEMIAH 4:1-23. FINDING FIRST, THE WALL DEFENDED AGAINST ENIMIES, SECOND FINDING THE "FOUNDATION" THAT A GATE-KEEPER SHOULD STAND ON. READ: GALATIANS 5:16-26 AND GALATIANS 22 WHICH SPEAKS OF THE "FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT" -- NOT FRUITS PLURAL. THE WORD FRUIT IS "SINGULAR" MEANING ONE , NOT "PLURAL" MEANING MORE THEN ONE! THINK ABOUT IT! MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL THE SCRIPURES ABOVE. IN A SHORT TIME PERIOD THERE WILL BE A BOOK PUBLIISHED ON THE "GATE-KEEPERS." KEEP WATCHING WE WILL GET IT PUBLISHED A.S.A.P. THANK YOU!
THIS PART WILL STAY A LITTLE LONGER: "LEARNING TO TRUST" BY DR. JOSEPH; LEARNING TO TRUST! It has always been difficult with everyone at one time or another. I faced it not to long ago. It was a struggle - Believe me! Many feel that a Pastor would not have that problem, but they do. Pastors are just like anyone else, we can be deeply hurt. The only difference with some Christians and leaders is they hide it just like I did and have done that more then once. The individuals hurt me at the very core of my life. Why? After all they were friends and "yes" still friends. But it took me sometime to work through it with my wife's help, she is a great spiritual loving wife. However, it was certainly the help of the Holy Spirit that really worked in me, giving me Biblical Insight and healing. Let me give you a few pointers. Thanks! First, Proverbs 3: 5-6, its a must when you are reading, to stop at times, think, take some time to study the Scriptures and asking the Holy Spirit about the Scriptures. But in short; it's "Trusting in the Lord with all your Heart, which is the opposite of doubting, being hesitant and or being uncertain. You need to read it, then ask the Holy Spirit to give insight and revelation In fact, God has always proven to be trustworthy, but mankind, well sadly not always so. One thing every christian needs to be assured of; is that Our Heavenly Father loves us and cares for us. Next read Matthew 10:31 and seek out the insight of truths therein. Also go to Matthew 6:8; it states, He knows all our needs not just Spiritually, but also in all natural areas of ones life. As I write this, as a vital and important truth comes to mind; "He Treasures our Faithfulness, Love and Loyalty above all Earthly Things." Other Scriptures to read and study are Jeremiah 29:11-13 it speaks loud and clear! There are three Spiritual principles that came came forth for me, hopefully they will help you as they did me! 1. God desires to do great things through you! 2. God will answer your prayers which is linked with His purposes for our life! 3. In Matthew 6:35-26; It involves surrendering all our anxieties, worries and fears to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This brings us to 1 Peter 5:7 & Phillipians 4:4-7 which are very important in this area of trust. With all of these scriptures now look at and read Ephesians 1:19. One more but not last is Habakkuk 3:17-19 read it in different translations such as the ESV. Then last but not least read Isaiah 26:3; it tells us... "We are living in stressful days all around the world, but God will always give hope and bring stability as we hold to Him, for Jesus is Our Hope, Our Refuge and Our Stability! God Bless with an "Amen"!
