I received an intriguing question today on my YouTube channel, and I wanted to share it with you all.
If the image doesn’t load, it reads:
“1. The other prophets stripped because God was working through them. It was like when Moses was told to take off his shoes because he was on holy ground. When the Spirit of God falls upon you, it’s time to strip away the man-made bandages and just be present with God’s creation and His Spirit.
2. If I’m at the pool, I will keep wearing a bikini. If I’m at the store or gym, I’ll wear shorts. I’m not preaching to already saved people when I go out into the world, I’m trying to reach the unsaved. So often clothes are a barrier, a wall to relationships. If I’m covered up, I don’t want that to be a wall in my witness, as a memorial of judgment against a non-believer, where they feel like they can’t speak to me. If they feel that they’re already judged because of something as superficial as their appearance, how can we talk about the real issue – the heart?
3. My audience is dependent on the topic. The Holy Spirit sends the right people to the right videos. I didn’t come to preach to already saved people, but those who are unsaved – the people who think they’re saved because of their adherence to an arbitrary, artificial standard of behavior. Saved people don’t need saving – lost people need saving and that can only happen through the message of Jesus Christ. I’m here to remind people that Jesus has slaughtered every sacred cow, so they need to let go of the hamburger they’re holding onto.”
I’ve noticed so many people love me for what I have to say, that I tear down and mock the sacred cows of Churchianity – until it gets time to talk about their Bessie. That cow is sacred, and they leave me in their anger. It’s not my message – I’m here to remind everyone that there is not a single sacred cow that Jesus didn’t slaughter when He went to the cross and it’s time people let go of their hamburgers – that cow is already dead.
The Holy Spirit determines the audience and He will always send the right people to the right video. Not every video is meant for every person. Everyone is welcome to listen to the message, but they must recognize that it’s not always for or about them.
Don’t let your frankenburger get in the way of sharing the gospel with others, nor should you allow it to blind you to the fact that everyone is made in the image of God, and that they need to hear the message of Jesus Christ – that there is a King, with a Kingdom, and He is returning, so repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.
