1                             To Be A Minister To Be A Minister 
WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A MINISTER?

  IT IS a noble and worthy calling, indeed. But why do you want to be a minister? 
  Is it so that people will look up to you and call you “reverend so-and-so” and you will be honored wherever you go? Does it seem like an easier occupation than driving a truck, plowing a field or doing construction work? Or do you have a sincere desire to spread the Gospel and to help people no matter how much they demand of you? Are you willing to be “on call” twenty-four hours a day for seven days a week and three hundred sixty-five and a quarter days a year? Are you willing to live out of suitcases for weeks or months at a time as you go from place to place to minister the Word of God? Is becoming a minister something you decided to do, or did God call you clearly and distinctly?
  For a good outline of the duties and responsibilities of a minister of the Gospel, the Apostle Paul’s two books to Timothy is a great place to start. Timothy was a young minister who was converted to Jesus Christ under Paul’s ministry and Paul writes to him the two epistles bearing his name as a guide to help him meet the special problems of the ministry. 
  In this book, we will attempt to answer as many questions as possible that are applicable to ministers of the Gospel in the 1990’s, including such things as what to do when someone stands in your church and says, “Preacher that’s not right,”1 while you are preaching; how to deal with the sower of discord or false doctrine among the brethren; what to tell the abused spouse or child; what to tell relatives of a person that is tragically  killed; how to deal with the person who cannot seem to get victory over a problem or sin in his or her life; how to have the best teachers, assistants in the ministry, and elders or deacons; and other questions.



1  See page 37.


  It is interesting to notice that in the very first word of instruction to Timothy after the greeting from his elder brother and mentor in the ministry, Paul says, “...charge some that they teach no other doctrine. Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.” The prophet Jeremiah and Jesus both spent considerable time preaching, teaching and pronouncing against false teachers and preachers whom Jesus likened to teachers having itching ears and both He and Jeremiah also referred to and spoke woe to “as shepherds that lead God’s flock astray.” Peter speaks of their doctrines in 2 Peter 1:16 as “...cunningly devised fables.” (See also, 2 Corinthians 11:3,4; Galatians 1:6-10.)
  Today, as in Bible days, false doctrines abound. Some are relatively harmless and only raise unnecessary questions that waste time on non-essential matters that could better be spent in outreach to the lost and teaching sound, sure doctrine, others  bring up questions of who is whose son, either spiritually or literally, and still others are serious, striking at the very fundamentals of the doctrine taught and preached by Jesus and the Apostles. We will not spend long, but a brief outline of the original doctrines of the Apostles is included in this book in the chapter called How to Preach Anointed Sermons. Of the most 
deadly false doctrines are those that gratify the feeling or give a confidence that one has met God’s requirements when in fact those requirements have not been met.
 Jesus sent out seventy ministers two by two to go before Him into the places He planned to go to. All too often, we fail to evangelize our neighborhoods and communities because we do not follow this example, and certain cults see great growth because they do follow that example of Jesus.
  Always, always,  do your best for Jesus. He is not satisfied with anything less than your sincere and real best. In fact, if you go back to the original Greek and Hebrew words translated “sin”, sin is really just falling short of God’s plan and purpose for your life. (See page 47) And you, as a minister are being looked to, not only by your own church members, but by your community as a whole, as an example of our Lord Jesus Christ, Himself! (See 1 Peter 2:21.) Always remember that you stand in the place of Jesus as His undershepherd, and that more than any other person in your locality, you have the duty and obligation to be as faithful a reflection of Him as your human body can possibly be.
  You should know several things discussed in this book which will help you to keep strong in faith, confidence and the power of the Holy Spirit and to minister that confidence in God to others, resulting in healing for the mind and body, spiritual and material blessings and Holy Ghost power to overcome all the wiles of Satan. In the late 1980’s and 1990’s people in general have sickened and grown tired of the empty moralizing and legalism of the organized church in general. They are looking for some real reason why they should attend church and worship a stern heavenly Father up on a throne waiting to judge them and send them to hell. The Gospel, the Good News, is that “God so loved the World that He gave His only begotten Son, that  whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). And that all should come to repentance and be filled with a new nature with power to overcome evil, sin and sickness.
  From very early in the Bible, there have been those who through dedication and consecration to God have carried His message to all who would listen. Noah preached holiness to the Lord, but was ridiculed and then spared the judgement God sent upon the ungodly. All through the book of Judges, there were those who spoke out for God, and of course we remember Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Elisha, Samuel, David, Nathan, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, and the so-called minor prophets such as Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, and so on. 
  In the New Testament, we have first John the Baptist, then the Apostles, especially, Peter, Paul, John, Matthew, James and Jude who declared the wonderful Good News of Jesus coming to earth, living, becoming our perfect sacrifice and returning to glory to be forever our intercessor. And we have Timothy and Titus, as well as the unnamed Ethiopian eunuch and the seventy Jesus sent out early in His ministry, who also went forth, sent to proclaim the Love of God.

THE MINISTRY IS NOT ALL FUN!

YOU may be “on call” twenty-four hours a day for seven days a week and three hundred sixty-five and a quarter days a year and your wife and children will sometimes wonder if you don’t think more of everyone else in the church than of them.
  You may have to live out of suitcases for weeks or months at a time as you go from place to place to minister the Word of God to people, many of whom feel that you were supposed to have brought revival in your suitcase and when you tell them you didn’t and that for them to have real revival they must die to self daily, read the Bible and earnestly and fervently pray, they will say you were a flop or, worse yet, a phony and just came for the money or a free vacation!?
 After a long day that began with an hour or two on your knees before you even had breakfast, progressed through an unexpected visit in your home by one of your members whose spouse just gave them a black eye and threatened to kill her (or him), included an hour or two in your study praying some more and reading and studying your Bible or a Bible study, a trip to the hospital to pray for not only members of your own church, but anyone else that was responsive to the reflection of Jesus that they saw in you, included time spent helping your children do homework, learning to play a musical instrument or even some sports activity, several telephone calls (if you have one) from or to people with problems needing effectual, fervent prayer and the “...washing of the Word,” teaching the evening Bible study at church, taking a visiting minister from a distant city to a nearby restaurant for a time of fellowship, another last minute phone call or visit from someone with a problem, you finally go to bed physically exhausted, emotionally drained and mentally worn out. You have snuggled up to your wife, but you have no more than dropped off to sleep when there is the loud ringing of the telephone or a pounding on your door and someone else needing your advice, counsel or prayer.
  Sound like a fun day? Please believe me, if you are known in your community as a real “man of God,” the above day will be all too typical. In addition, although you know “...My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 4:19), and “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [your food, shelter and clothing] shall be added unto you,” (Matthew 6:33),  you may have bills that seem beyond your ability to pay, or you may even be wondering where the next meal is coming from because someone doesn’t like you and has quit paying tithes. On top of that, the car won’t run and must be repaired, the children need new clothes because they have either worn them out or outgrown them, the roof leaks when it rains and the high pollen count or dust or smoke in the air is making your eyes water and your nose run.
  Still want to be a minister? Maybe this is a good time to ask,“What is the rank of the demon soldiers Satan sends against you personally  as a soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ?” Are they new recruits? Privates first class? Master sergeants, lieutenants, captains or Generals? Always remember that you are in a battle, and there are both friends and enemies. All who truly love God through the Lord Jesus Christ are and must be considered friends while those who oppose Him are your enemies. It is not difficult to identify the outright ungodly, the drunkards, thieves, whoremongerers, murderers and the occult and demon or satan worshippers, but sometimes it is difficult to tell those who name the name of Christ in hypocrisy and deceit, because not all who believe error in New Testament doctrine are in that position because they want to deceive, and we have to be careful that we do not pull out the wheat with the tares. It is sometimes extremely difficult to distinguish, even after much prayer and fasting, whether a person is one who truly loves Jesus and has been misled but can be shown the truth in God’s appointed time, or is a sly espionage agent or saboteur of Satan’s army.
  Satan hates man and tries to kill and destroy him because man is created in the likeness and image of God. You, as a minister of God are a special target because you are (or should be) aware of Satan’s tricks and are attempting to point as many souls as possible to our Lord Jesus Christ, to bring deliverance from demonic oppression and sickness as well as from sin. Therefore, you need to be especially sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that He can warn you what Satan is going to hit you with next. One thing is certain. As a minister who tries to avoid the theologies of man and to teach and preach with the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit, you are on the “cutting edge” of the battle and you need to be aware that Satan will stoop to any kind of sneaky trick he can to try to disable, hinder or stop you or to actually kill you. 
  “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” (1 Peter 4:12,13).
  He may get at you through your own wife or children, by tempting them to get their eyes on the pleasures of the world and if you do not keep them close-knit with both the Lord Jesus and yourself, you will certainly have trouble. 

When a member of your family backslides, it hurts your credibility as a minister who can give sound advice to others in the same situation, even though you have done all you know to keep that one close to the Lord, and may have learned some real insights into how Satan works through the experience.
  And God forbid that you are ever divorced from the first person you marry, because there will be those that will dispute your right and authority to be a minister because you are not “the husband of one wife.” This will be especially true if you have remarried, and even more so if you have remarried since you were filled with the Holy Spirit or become a minister. However, if the Apostle Paul was a member of the Jewish Sanhedrin, as many Bible scholars say, then he also had to have been married, but obviously, he was not living with any wife while on his missionary journeys, and referred to his single state in 1 Corinthians 7:7. Many a God-called, anointed minister has been shoved out of the ministry by his fellow ministers and church members because an unfaithful wife divorced him and he was unable to stand the single life and remarried.
  Another family situation Satan throws at God’s ministers is the rebellious child who misbehaves in church, shows no respect for the house of God, and grows up to be identified with the more serious sins. This can seriously undermine that minister’s own faith and at the same time keep others from entrusting him to guide them in how to overcome the same situation in their own families.
  I cannot overstate the importance of effectual, fervent prayer, the systematic study of God’s Word and setting the example for your family to follow. A great many, if not most ministers get so busy doing the necessary things for God that we cannot find time to get alone with God in our closets of prayer and do not realize that prayer is more than asking God to meet needs. It also includes His talking to us, both through His printed word and by His Spirit in tongues, interpretation, prophecy and the still small voice within us. But while we are too busy to pray and study His Word as we ought, we are also usually too busy to spend time with our wives and children and they then begin to feel neglected, setting them up as a target. Satan can then tempt them with the idea that you really don’t care about them and that they deserve better. If God was really real and a God of love, he wouldn’t make you work so hard for Him that you couldn’t spend time with your family. In fact, it is often at this point that he will throw in a little scripture (out of context, of course) and say, “The Bible says that he that provideth not for his own is worse than an infidel.” (A slight mis-quotation of 1 Timothy 5:8.)
  It is vitally important that as a minister, you MUST spend time with your family in a loving and caring situation, demonstrating to them above all, the kind of love Jesus Christ has for His church. Showing them the JOY of the Lord and how to enjoy the goodness of God through nature, sports, good food, and whatever else is appropriate to your Christian testimony and witness. In so doing, you will accomplish two things: 1. Keep your family together in peace and love; and 2. Set an example of how enjoyable it is to live for our Lord Jesus Christ and show up Satan’s lie that makes the Christian life seem a drudgery to people out in the world.
  If you are already experiencing attacks by Satan in any of the areas of life mentioned above, by all means make time to get alone with God, the world forbidden, and let Him direct your paths. And if the problem is in your own family relations, try to reflect the love of Jesus as you show each member of your family your own love.
  It is of crucial importance that, as a minister, you realize that people will be watching you constantly, ready to accuse you of any mistake they can spot, to make themselves look better. True Bible holiness must be evident in your life. Holiness bespeaks purity, cleanness, living pure and wholly consecrated to God with a sense of His Total Perfection. Unfortunately, many of our fellow ministers have gotten bogged down in a holiness of clothing standards which is much like the doctrines of the Pharisees of Jesus’ day. Holiness.and modesty are often seen as what a person wears, rather than why  a person wears this or that, which is what God looks at. Study what the Bible says, in the context in which it says it. Modesty, by definition, is that which sets you apart least, and the commandments about clothing and jewelry in 1 Timothy 2:9  and 1 Peter 3:1-4 are both telling wives to win their husbands to the Lord, not by what they wear, but by their godly conduct and conversation. You lose much credibility in your community by placing standards on your people which the people of the community see as silliness and not holiness. The holiness that honors God is that of love, joy, peace and longsuffering toward your fellow man and an awed reverence for the righteousness and purity of a highly exalted heavenly Father.
  No, the ministry is not all fun. It is a daily battle with Satan, but with Jesus by your side, you can know the joy of overcoming Satan and winning the victory. At first, Satan will be sending out his buck privates and lower eschelon soldiers against you, but as you, with Jesus, prove you can overcome them, he sends increasingly higher ranks against you, but less and less often, because he doesn’t like to get beaten, either! What a joy it is to struggle with a General in Satan’s army and through the blood, anointing and power of Jesus to send that demon packing!

 
3                            To Be A Minister To Be A Minister 
How To Have
The Original Apostle's Power

Miracles come by earnest, effectual fervent prayer in response to unshakable faith in the properly understood and applied promises of God.
  Jesus promised that “...These signs shall follow them that believe, In My name, shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” (Mark 16: 17,18).
  God's Word promises all who truly believe a life of victory, power, confidence, joy and health on this earth as well as eternal life after our earthly body returns to the dust. 
  Christianity, as a whole had a real problem with a credibility gap. We claim to believe Jesus Christ and all His promises, but too often all we can do is tell people what they ought to do.  We don’t have the power to cast out demons, we are afraid to lay hands on the sick and be so sure of their recovery that we lift them out of their wheelchairs or have them taken off life-support systems. In fact, while we proclaim to believe Jesus is the answer to every problem, many Christians are worried about every little detail of life. When will we realize that “Faith is the solid material of the things we hope for (by the Holy Spirit), and the proof positive evidence of the things we cannot yet see with our natural eyes or feel with our natural feelings.” (Hebrews 11:1 literal meaning).
  The Apostles Peter and John, when they went into the temple to pray did not have to get down on their knees and cry out to God to get the power to heal the man at the Gate Beautiful, they already HAD the power, and they KNEW they had the power. “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk,” (Acts 3:6)
  Many people claim to believe  that Jesus still heals, but go to the doctor at the slightest pain, discomfort or scratch. But believing is not just giving mental agreement or assent to a fact, it is trusting in and relying on that fact. There is a difference between believing that an airplane will fly as a fact (after all, you can look up and see them in the sky) and actually entrusting one with your own body and the rest of your family! But if you are afraid to get in an airplane and fly, you are demonstrating a lack of belief (unbelief) that it will safely take you from one place to the other. The same is true of the anointing and power of God for healing. Many can believe God to heal Brother or Sister So-and-so, and can really pray and believe that He WILL do it, and He does. But let them have a pain in their own bodies and right away they just know it is cancer (after all my sister or brother had it and died) and they rush to the doctor for tests and an operation. While it is true that they may get some chances to pray for someone in the hospital or to witness and to tell of the goodness of God, their witness to God’s healing power cannot fail to be damaged by their lack of faith to entrust this illness in their own bodies completely to God. “The husbandman that laboreth must be first partaker of the fruits.” (2 Timothy 2:6). If you expect to have the power Peter and John had to heal the lame man and reach the crowd for Jesus that day, you MUST KNOW that Jesus never fails and He will do that which will glorify the Father by Him.
  There are a great many scriptures that declare God heals His people and wants them to be in good health. Very few instances are given in which God is said to have brought sickness or to have sent an evil spirit (as on King Saul) and all of these instances were in judgement for evildoing. The weight of scripture is that God wants his people to be well, and in good health. Therefore, we must take the position that usually, sickness is from Satan. If sickness is from Satan, why not obey the words of James:“...resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Believe me. If you will rebuke the devil at the first hint of the next cold, flu or other sickness you often catch, remind him that you are God’s child and that to reflect the glory of God you must be also a reflection of God’s health, you will find Satan powerless to put that sickness upon you! (See also: Isaiah 53:4,5; 1 Peter 5:9; Matt. 26:41; Ephesians 4:27 and 6:11-18.)
  Resisting the devil means to completely refuse the entrance into your heart and mind of any thought of an angry, anxious, contrary, critical, depressive, detrimental, doubtful, envious, evil, hateful, impure, indifferent, selfish, resentful, slanderous, unrighteous, unkind, unbelieving, or otherwise negative nature. 
  Our failure to guard against these impure thoughts entering our minds opens the door to all kinds of depression, disease, doubt and fear, demonic oppression, discords, fights and wars, frustrations and unanswered prayer, not only in the lives of Christians, but in all  people in the world. As a Christian, and as a minister in particular, you MUST: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7).
  Can Jesus fail? No!! What if the lame man at the Gate Beautiful had said, “Hey, man, put me down. I can’t walk!” Do you think he would still have been healed? Would that have meant that Jesus failed? Not at all. Nor would it have meant 

that Peter and John did not have the power. Nor yet would it have meant that Jesus did not pay for that man’s healing when He suffered the Roman cat o’nine tails whip on His back . (See Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24).

•   A good rule for you to follow when you first move into a community is to learn what procedure you need to follow to be legally able to perform weddings, funerals, and any other legal function of a minister of the Gospel recognized in that community. Many opportunities to reach out to the lost in your community can be gained if you also let it be known you are available for dedications of buildings, parks, flagpoles, invocations and benedictions at community and civic events and even sports events. You should, of course, register with the nearest hospital(s) and let them know you will be glad to come at any time to pray for the sick, counsel and advise those in emotional or mental distress or comfort the bereaved. You should also learn which funeral homes have a reputation for honest dealings and reasonable prices, so that you can recommend them to families of your church who lose a loved one. It is almost unbelievable the number of unscrupulous salesmen who will swoop on the family and try to sell them everything from overpriced caskets and cemetery lots to newspaper clipping service and living memorials of all sorts. While there is honest need for most, if not all these things, there are also reputable funeral homes which can and will provide every needed service at a price which is substantially below what the rip-off artists charge for the same or poorer service after all the “add-ons” have been added on.
   You may be asked, invited or required to join the local ministerial association which may include many with whose theology you strongly disagree for sound scriptural reasons, and many people feel that joining such an organization is wrong because of the prohibition against being joined together with unbelievers, and Paul’s command to turn away from heretics. But most of these men really want to help their community and to point the way to God, and if you join and show that you are not the “kook” most of them think people of the Apostolic, Jesus’ name Pentecostals are, you can begin to open scriptures to them and open their understanding of the full truth. I have had good success in this area, and recommend your joining and working to get your fellow ministers to study the Word of God in complete context and pray more and let the Holy Spirit bring them on in to the full revelation of the truth. “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” Many battles have been won by infiltrating the enemy!
  The Apostles and others were together with their minds on nothing but Jesus, when the “Holy Ghost Spectacular” came upon them that drew the crowd of three thousand. Paul and Silas were in the Philippian jail in one mind and accord praising God and singing songs of praise in their midnight of adversity when another “Holy Ghost Spectacular” shook the place literally and resulted in the conversion of the Philippian jailer and his family. It was earnest and fervent prayer on the part of the prophet Elijah that caused the three and a half year drought in Israel and again to bring the rain again.
  As long as you have doubts that God can or will do the needed thing, you need not expect Him to move on your behalf or the behalf of the one you are attempting to intercede for. The epistle of the Apostle James goes to great lengths to explain that our doubts cancel God’s movement on our behalf, but that if we ask anything in faith believing, for the glory of God, we will receive it.
  Jesus taught that we should not seek signs and that such a search for signs is evidence of a wicked and perverse generation (Matthew 12:38,39; 16:1-4; Mark 8:11, 12; Luke 11:16-30), but He also promised that signs would follow all who believe (Mark 16:17,18,20). There is no contradiction here. The signs (in 1 Corinthians 14:22, he mentions the sign of tongues) are not for those who believe, but for those who believe not, according to the Apostle Paul. The crowds followed Jesus because of the miracles He did and the spectacular signs they saw and not for the profound doctrines He taught, but they heard the doctrines because they were brought by the miracles. The same pattern followed throughout the book of Acts, and people believed on Jesus Christ because they heard the message and believed unto conviction because they had seen the miracles as proof of His authority and power.
  The same should apply to your ministry and mine today. We should not pray for nor look for signs, but we should have the power of God evident in our lives to make the truth and authority of our words believable to a skeptical and unbelieving world that has seen most of Christianity as “...having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof.” And they don’t need the Apostle Paul’s advice 2 Timothy 3:5 to know to turn away! The thing that should set us apart as ministers of the Lord Jesus Christ is that because we believe His Word cannot fail, signs should follow us even to the point of being embarrassed and followed by people needing deliverance shouting out who we are in God (see Acts 16:16-25).
  Believing God, knowing through study and trusting His Word to the point of leaning back and relaxing in and on it, earnest effectual fervent prayer and fasting whenever the Holy Spirit lays it on your heart, is the key to having the power the original Apostles had and seeing the results by the souls who come to Jesus through your ministry.
