Which Spirit Do You Have?

The Chosen Vessel in his final letter to Timothy, and probably, his final letter to anyone, was inspired to write: "For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind"(2Tim.1:7).  Yet, in 1995 when the heretic, Tkach, introduced the heretical teachings into The Worldwide Church of God, the men who were ordained ministers turned out to be fearful cowards.  None of them had the courage to stand up at the lectern, and tell their respective congregations not to believe the nonsense that was being published in The Worldwide News, The Pastor General Report or on the endless cassette tapes, that were then in circulation.

These men could never have had the spirit of God, and yet failed to speak out.  For the Chosen Vessel says, "For God has not given us  the spirit of fear." Yet, Peter Shenton, Ian Martin and Paul Roberts, who were the so-called ministers of the Birmingham, England, congregation all failed to boldly speak out against the spiritual poison that the church was being fed.  Where was their "spirit of power?" 

Furthermore, what about the spirit of love? Jesus asked Peter three times, and the number three is important, "Do you love me?" and each time Peter said, yes.  And Jesus told him, "feed my sheep."  If these wicked men had the spirit of love, they would have died rather than abandoned Christ's sheep, to feed on the poison of Protestant theology.  These evil, wicked men have got some surprises coming, and no one will be bringing flowers - not even to put on their graves! 

Moreover, what about the spirit of a sound mind? Well, it was pretty obvious to anyone who was truly converted, that the hireling ministers, that were in WCG, and who are now in LCG, UCG, RCG, PCG, GCI, COG/Hulme and all the other divided splinters, that hurt people, were and are ignorant of the wholesome teachings of Christ.  Every Sabbath, they regurgitated the nonsense they were taught by Dr Meredith, Dr Hoeh, Raymond McNair and all the other faculty members that were based at the three Ambassador Colleges.

It was said, that Dr Meredith had a unique understanding of the Epistles of Paul.  If that claim was not so pompous, it would be risible.  To understand the Epistle of Paul one has to be led by God through a process of suffering, that leads to humility and sanctification.  Then one can approach to allegory of Galatians chapter four, the doctrine of election, the mystery of Mechesidec and rejoice and be astonished with the Chosen Vessel, when he says, "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways are past finding out"(Rom.11:33).  What did the great Apostle elucidated, that led him to that inspired exultation?

Can any sensible person believe that these evil men, who were primarily motivated by power and money, had a truly sound mind, capable of understanding any of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven?  The answer is no, and that means they were not Christ's ministers, but ministers of the devil.
