The Mysteries of God

It should be clear to anyone who is led by the spirit of truth that most of The Worldwide Church of God ministers were actually hirelings. The hireling may hide himself among faithful ministers, of whom there were very few, and “by good words and fair speeches deceive the heart of the simple”(Romans 16:18).  But when the wolf pack comes over the hill, the true character of the hireling is exposed, because he will run away and abandoned the flock(John 10:12-13).  This is exactly what all the former WCG’s “ministers” did who are now mismanaging GCI, UCG, PCG, LCG, RCG, COG/Hulme and all the other so-called independent churches of god.

But in obedience to Christ, none of God’s faithful children have followed these evil men.  For Jesus affirmed, “a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him, for they know not the voice of strangers(John 10:4-5).  So I have fled from the these evil men!  And I have often stated, “If they are the shepherds, then I am not the sheep, for I don’t recognised their voice,”

However, for the benefit of the hand full of God’s faithful people who read this blog, for the next few weeks, I want to focus on why The Chosen Vessel was moved to exclaim, “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out”(Romans 11:33).  What sublime mystery did the chosen vessel elucidated that led him to this exclamation of joy and wonder?  Of course he was a faithful “steward of the mysteries of God”(1 Cor. 4:1).

In contrast, the unfaithful hirelings, leading the above mentioned churches, are completely ignorant of the mysteries of God, which is a clear indication that they are not God’s ministers!

A HIRELING WAS SNARED BY THE TRUTH

Once again I had a fruitless but extended conversation with a minister in The Worldwide Church of God, UK.  I wanted know how he could justify attending with WCG when he disagrees with the doctrinal changes introduced by Joseph Tkach and his son?  So I began the conversation by stating that all faithful ministers and brethren had a God given responsibility to speak out against all forms of heresy, and to “earnestly contend for the faith”(Jude 3).  I then asked the minister if he spoke out against the false teaching, by warning the brethren that they were being feed spiritual poison.
His response to my questions and quotation from Jude was completely irrational.  He stated that “to speak out against Tkach’s teaching amounts to rebellion against God’s servant.”  What nonsense?  One can only rebel against the truth, not against heresy!  However, he unwittingly agreed with me that the reason ministers did not speak out was because they feared being sacked, without the hope of future employment.  After he conceded this fact, I stated that any minister who placed financial consideration before the spiritual welfare of God’s people was a hireling.   But when he realised that I was branding him a hireling, he tried to change the subject.
It was then time for me to take my leave, realising that the discussion was fruitless.
