1 Samuel 13 - the rebuke of Samuel to Saul 1 Samuel 12 - the rebuke of Nathan to David. Isaiah 55: 8-9:: ““My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry.” Isaiah 55:8-10 NLT As we dive into the series of VERSUS we come to another lesson in our journey. This week we discuss God’s Word vs. God’s Ways. Often times in scripture we see God uses his Prophet to speak yet due to the fabrication of life the spoken word of the Prophet that has been translated into written words of the Prophet has divide us in such a way it is incomprehensible. There although we ate taught not to despised the divide because of the state of the “need for glasses in the year of vision” yet nobody wants to admit they need a Prophet.. Or glasses. Therefore this week as we continue this series I want to breakout the divide and the versus to better prophetic explain and declare this says the Lord. So let’s GO… The rebukes of the Prophets. Both rebukes came and came by a Prophet but yet the ability to progress was in the hands of God. The selection process that determined the development process was based on their response. Similar to Jesus in the Parable of the Sabbath. Jesus broke the law, sinner but yet was justified and graced because of the divine diplomatic immunity he walked in. His response was different. READ ALOUD MATTHEW 12 “At about that time Jesus was walking through some grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, so they began breaking off some heads of grain and eating them. But some Pharisees saw them do it and protested, “Look, your disciples are breaking the law by harvesting grain on the Sabbath.” Jesus said to them, “Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He went into the house of God, and he and his companions broke the law by eating the sacred loaves of bread that only the priests are allowed to eat. And haven’t you read in the law of Moses that the priests on duty in the Temple may work on the Sabbath? I tell you, there is one here who is even greater than the Temple! But you would not have condemned my innocent disciples if you knew the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ For the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!”” Matthew 12:1-8 NLT

obedience is better than sacrifice by sometime
sacrifice to win! LOSE TO WIN… ruin ourselves of pride. Next Week Let’s Talk About… VERSUS: PROPHETS vs PASTORS 👂🏽the Holy Spirit said “THE PASTOR TAKES CARE OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE TEMPLE... THE PROPHET HAS A SCHOOL...” 🤯😫😆 (Nehemiah Walls) 🤔 Prophet make that make sense: the Pastor operates in a pastoral capacity meaning he has authority over the sheep, the gatekeeper of his temple, the sheepdog and etc... pastors often operate as teachers because what they have authority over. However there functionality is to pastor. #ProphetVsPastor ✍🏽 so while I am a full blown PROPHET OF GOD I have to sometimes operate in the grace of a teacher. Why? Because God didn’t grace me to pastor, yet! I’m grace to be a Prophet, and Prophet have schools to TEACH! Therefore in a certain season I may be able to walk in the grave of a “teacher” but still lack the grace to Pastor. Which is while the Bible say 1 Corinthian 12:12 “The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit. Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.” In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. And the parts we regard as less honorable are those we clothe with the greatest care. So we carefully protect those parts that should not be seen, while the more honorable parts do not require this special care. So God has put the body together such that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity.” 1 Corinthians 12:12-19, 21-24 NLT Define Dignity: PRIDE
TO WIN IS TO LOSE… to be his discipline we gotta down size! LETS GO HOME… (hoop) “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” Matthew 16:24-26 NLT
