Take a Seat...I'll Take Several...100
Whenever criticism is rendered towards a minister we often hear people defend their spiritual or religious leaders with such words as "touch not my anointed" when such leaders are being questioned or spoken against regarding their ungodly behavior. There are some religious leaders that threaten their congregations with a curse should they question their leader or speak against that leader in an attempt to make them accountable on certain issues. A careful look at the origin of the words "touch not my anointed" actually shows that church folks and religious leaders have grossly taken scriptures out of context and mislead, manipulated, intimidated and dominated many in these last days. This is such as a jezebel or witchcraft spirit. When David and the Israelites went to battle against the Philistines the Philistines were defeated and the Ark of the Covenant was brought to the people of God. David rendered these Psalms to God. If we are to read such words, "touch not my anointed" in context contrary to out of context, as it is so often used, it refers to the harming or killing of God's anointed ones-the Israelites. The passage does not refer to holding religious leaders accountable or speaking against them.
The following scriptures explains that all believers are anointed ones and were given a certain measure of anointing:
"Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us [is] God"-2 Corinthians 1:21
"These things I have written to you concerning those who [try to] deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him."-1 John 2:26-27Let's be clear, it does not mean that we don't need pastors and gifts in the body of Christ, but if it doesn't equip and edify believers, then it is operating as a Jezebel spirit.
"Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols."-Revelations 2:20
"And He himself gave some [to be] apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ."-Ephesians 4:11-12I don't know about you but I can't be a part of a ministry where the leader intimidates, manipulates, dominates and threatens with all manners of curse if/when they are questioned. The bible is filled with examples where the leaders were questioned. So are you saying you're better that Moses, Job, and Jesus because all of them were questioned by their followers but they were wise master builders that were equipped with the wisdom to provide an answer instead of an assault. So to the person that texted me saying I need to take a seat...you're right. I need to take several seats, while I'm at it can I get some plants, shelves, mirrors, vases, lamps, frames, dishes, collection baskets, glass tables, glasses, utensils, Christmas trees and decorations since you opened that door. Well, with all hearts and minds satisfied, I would like to close and get ready to prepare my mind to hold the other questionable leaders accountable. There's a regular called meeting tonight at 6:00 p.m.
