Faith is an indicator that we should demonstrate each and every day of our lives. It is the essential essence of moving in the knowledge of God. Having faith moves us into the Spiritual realm of God and is the identifying factor that tells us who we are connected to. By preforming and is that agent the Holy Spirit is easily identified because of its desire to move us into the Spiritual realm in heavily place with God. This is where the power wonder working power from the sacrificial blood of the Lamb of God that lives in you and me once we identify it which the spirit of the living God has come from. It like having “a room with two beds denoting one is for you to get out of and the other is to stay in. faith is the outline of something awaiting to happen because of our belief of what faith through Christ Jesus is able to sustain our faith to do great and marvelous things because of the belief and love for God. This creates and enlarges the boarders of our faith. Faith in Christ Jesus makes all things possible releasing the impossible making them possible through showing faith in Christ pleasing to God. Faith can destroy half a city but greater faith can destroy and bring back to life a city. Because of the love for the leader of that city that confines the persons in the city to greater faith. This literally speaks of Jesus Christ in Old Testament times when the heads of households, prominent men of the tribes, and leaders who were rulers in the community believe. The church we read about in the Bible was organized in a very simple way. A general pattern was to have two or more qualified men overseeing each local congregation or church. These men could be referred to as the "eldership". Each man must meet several high qualifications which the Bible lists in two passages that all must go out as to showing faith that it is better for two to walk together than one alone. Elders are the spiritual leaders of a congregation. They also watch out for the souls of the members like a shepherd. Many today became phases and taught false doctrine from their denominations. However it seems that the leaders are being attack from the congregation so that they will cannot move in the leadership that God has ordain them in. Because of this spreading in the church the church becomes powerless because of disrespect to the leaders. There we have it many religions and denominations recognized autonomous branch of the Christian Church. A large group of religious congregations united under a common faith and name and organized under a single administrative and legal hierarchy. They are falsely taught that these are three distinct offices, rather than three descriptive terms that describe the same ONE and true God. However they can never demonstrate the activity in changing people’s lives because of the lack of faith in God and allowing Jesus to take credit for what He through God has done because of Jesus faith in the Father. That cause Him to raise Lazarus from the dead and open blind eyes and the lamb to walk. As He became one with the Father however acknowledge the Father and knew that He was powerless without the Father. He does these things because of the Father. Just as there is one God. Which is the Father Son and Holy Spirit. In one office. But several functions. Failure to be shown that in scripture, these terms are used interchangeably. As seen in God who is the same yesterday and today. Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, through which those who were so occupied were not benefited. Many of us try to change God. And believe that God sent His Son to change man. However He did not come to change He came to save. The changing is where the Spirit of the living God directs us in truth and it is our decision whether we decide to walk in Christ allowing Him to be Lord over our lives. Yes if we confess with our mouth and believe in our hearts Christ died for sinners and that we are sinners we are save by God’s grace. However we must have faith and allow the Holy Spirit to direct us in the leading us in the direction where God desire us to go. Many are called few are chosen. The least we do to each other we do it unto Christ. We are to grow to the stage where not only are teachable but chosen by God just as He chose Paul Mary and all that are the call according to Gods purpose and plan as it was for the Salvation of man. We live in a world where many think yet believe just as it was with the Jews never thinking that God had called the Gentiles to himself. Well now God who called the gentles to himself is calling the world of non-believer to himself. All are welcome not just the gentles believers. Those who were in the snare of the enemy and that once was there father now can also accept Jesus as Lord over their lives. All are welcome For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to promise. , and so on. God is the same and it is He that invites all man who has accept Jesus Christ as their savior and believe in their hearts the He rose on the third day and resurrect from the dead. However man has place this responsibility in his own hands. By misinterpretation that God only called His elect. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ by grace ye are saved and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. It is God who will judge and separate the chaff from the wheat. "As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals John the Baptist says. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. "His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. Which tells us that those who accept Christ don’t have to worry about changing or works for it is the Holy Spirit that will burn up ever ungodly thing in them if they are truly of the beloved Jesus Christ. "And because a person has talent is not the reason why God has chosen them. Are they demonstrating the miracles of God? Are they visiting the sick feeding the poor? Who is their neighbor? We travel all around the world and visit countries to help them however your next door neighbor in need of something is. Before we can serve we must serve those that are the closes to us. If not they are not chosen. The fact remains, that if these four terms all refer to the same office, then most denominational organizations make much of the inspired pattern and are utterly false and to be rejected by God. We walk past angels unaware on the street and do not know they are sent to test our faith. Let love of the brethren continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body. A failure to recognize come from the same Greek word "Presbureros". That the English terms Part of the confusion is that one Bible translation will consistently translation the Greek word "Presbureros" as "Elder, while another translation will render the same Greek word "Presbureros" as Presbyter. An elder or minister of the Christian Church a member of the order of priests in churches having episcopal hierarchies. In the early Christian church) an office bearer who exercised teaching, priestly, and administrative functions. We are find no fault with these translations, but people simply do not look closely enough to notice what is really going on between translations. Each of the three Greek words are translated into two English words, where one of these English word is a true translation and the other is a meaningless man-made ecclesiastical, church term invented by various churches. To prove their point, when in everyday language do we ever use the words, Presbyter as just a minister of the gospel which we all are. Pastor on the other hand leads a group of individual in a church or out the church. They have no use or meaning outside of religion and their meaning is obscure. Not discovered or known about; these are called Pastors by God As faintly perceptible as to lack clear delineation; indistinct. Who are hidden because of lack of communication skills or they have a prophet mentality so those over the church are uncertain and confuse about them. Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. "For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. However meaning the words, Elder or Overseer or Shepherd are understood by all and are used in all areas of life. Another example of this is the word "Baptism", which comes from the Greek word "Baptizo" and is translated "immersion". If Bible translations only used the true translations of all these words, it would greatly reduce confusion as well as immediately prove that "Baptism" is immersion, not sprinkling In the book of Acts, the Apostle Paul appointed elders in the early church, and in 1 Timothy and Titus, the office of elder was instituted. In the church today, elders are spiritual leaders or shepherds of the church. They serve as pastors and teachers and also provide general oversight on financial, organizational, and spiritual matters. The biblical requirements of an elder are described in these passages: 1 Timothy 3:1-7 this is a trustworthy saying: "If someone aspires to be an elder, he desires an honorable position." So an elder must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money. He must manage his own family well, having children who respect and obey him. For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God's church? An elder must not be a new believer, because he might become proud, and the devil would cause him to fall. Also, people outside the church must speak well of him so that he will not be disgraced and fall into the devil's trap. Titus 1:6-9 an elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don't have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. An elder is a manager of God's household, so he must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with money. Rather, he must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must love what is good. He must live wisely and be just. He must live a devout and disciplined life. He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong. However many are Elders in the church but are misunderstood by many and this is the silencer of faith. This is the one that should be taught by the Pastor and be under Him this is the one that hears from God. And have master to call upon Him and God hears this person because of the faith in the heart called by God and love by God and anointed by God Himself.
