Prepared Unto Every Good Work [podcast]

Want to be used of God? Well just begin today…. a small step, beginning in a private prayer time with our LORD, crying out to the Father in Jesus Christ to break and use us for His glory.

DO you desire to minister for Christ more effectively? 1. Learn more Scripture (KJB), 2. Seek God in intimate prayer, 3. Learn, live out His cross!

“The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:28

Is God’s Word, His recorded revelation, abiding rich in your spirit, mind, and life? If so, speak it forth.

GOT A WORD? …IF you don’t have and aren’t speaking THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, please cease all “ministering.” Do not push forward, insisting you are called AND prepared. If you do so, you will be cast upon the trash heap of the “many false prophets” we were so often warned about, whose end will be eternal “damnation.” (Matthew 7:15; 24:11; 2 Timothy 3:13; 2 Peter 2:1-3; 1 John 4:1, etc.). To the biblically illiterate, please know that the LORD has not sent you, yet, He wants you to humble yourself and be prepared – to know Him, to learn HIS Word and ways.

“But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:” Titus 2:1 

The only way to learn to walk and talk Biblically/biblical is to study God’s Word like He told you to (2 Timothy 2:15). Do it now.

If you won’t be faithful to learn God’s Word, He can’t use you to minister it – because you don’t know it (2 Timothy 2:15). And if you go forth trying be minister, you’ll be a false witness.

“Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.” Proverbs 24:27 

Prepare in private and God will use you in public (Matthew 6:6).

Prepared by God

In the Bible when God chose a man or woman for a mission, calling, an exploit, we can see a pattern of preparation, we see these called out ones always being hidden before they were seen – always being prepared in private to be used in public.

  • Joseph was hidden in prison not in prestige. He was then promoted to the palace and prime minister of the most powerful country of that day.
  • Moses was hidden in the desert not a palace.
  • David was hidden in a field, a pasture tending to sheep, not a castle.
  • Lazarus was hidden in death not in life.
  • Peter was hidden in his failure and his father’s fishing business not in preaching.
  • Paul was hidden in the Arabian desert not revival.

Stop fearing the hidden moment, the season of testing, training, and preparation.

God’s Word cannot be in me unless I am in it – daily in reading, study, meditation, and obedience.

Today, we have an epidemic of people in ministry, doing ministry, who’ve never been personally grounded in God’s Word. In many cases, they have followed the convoluted teachings of others, of mere men. Sad yet so true. On social media we see arrogant novices spreading a poisonous mixture, a diatribe of half-truths and heresies (1 Timothy 3:6). To say they are shallow would be an understatement. Beware and be not one of them. Get soundly grounded in God’s Word for yourself. Begin immediately studying God’s Word for yourself, which is a divine mandate (2 Timothy 2:15). That’s exactly what Paul told Timothy to do and exactly what God tells you to do here in 2 Timothy 2:15.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 

Nothing replaces Bible reading, Bible knowledge.

“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet (fit, prepared, equipped) for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” 2 Timothy 2:21

God has chosen to mightily use those who have and are daily submitting to His cross, His will, purpose, and power in their daily lives (2 Timothy 2:21; 3:10). They cry out to be one with Him, to fruitfully abide in vital union with Christ! (John 15, 17).

The only way the disciple of Jesus can be “prepared unto every good work” of the Gospel, is via the Word of God, by way of a personal knowledge and understanding of the precepts of God and his personal use of that divine truth, wisdom.

“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect (equipped, mature), throughly furnished (with God’s Word) unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:15-17

“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrews 5:14

“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” Matthew 6:6

DOES this not sum up what ministry is? Read closely: “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.” (Ezra 7:10)

It is your duty and personal responsibility to study and learn and increasingly know and be filled full of the truth of God. And, this cannot and will not happen outside of diligently, daily study of God’s Word. Memorize 2 Timothy 2:15 and 3:15-17.

How shall a man be prepared to speak the oracles of God other than getting those precepts, those truths into his own heart and mind by diligently studying God’s Word?

Any man who is not full, who is not grounded soundly in the “oracles”, the written, recorded words of God, is not yet ready to minister effectively, fruitfully to God’s people.

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:11

How can God’s words possibly get into us unless we get into and stay into His Word?

No man has ever been used of God without being prepared by God.

Some people’s money has insulated them from the blessing of trials and tribulations and due to this they are shallow. No Christ-like character has been forged in them through the rigors of having to trust God by faith through afflictions…..
