Seek and Follow a Real Man of God

“Elisha’s Encounter with Children” (4)

“…and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died.” II Kings 4:20b

In this experience, Elisha had some earlier communication with this family. The great woman of Shunem had recognized he was a man of God and the Lord used him to pray that she have a son. It came true and then tragedy of tragedies, the lad dies. Thus, we have a parent who realizes her child is already lost, gone, dead.

One great lesson in this story is this family’s interest in and care for the man of God, Elisha. Over thirty-five times in these few chapters is the moniker used, “man of God.” You may know men of influence or a man of means, but, how valuable is an association with a real man of God! Elisha brought hope and light into this childless family and then when the light was extinguished and hope forsaken, he was there for the family. This was a man of God who believed God worked miracles. He was touched by human needs and had a visible holiness (vs. 9). He was not just a man’s man, but God’s man!

As a parent, if you have arrived at a brick wall of a belligerent, back-slidden boy or girl, get yourself and them to a man of God. Elisha stretched himself over this child three times and brought him back to life (vss. 33-35). A good place to start would be to get faithful to church Sunday morning, Sunday night and the mid-week service. I’m not talking about just a “run-of-the-mill” minister. I’m saying get them to a man that God knows and he knows God. — Dr. Tim Green

I cannot stress enough the importance of finding and being faithful to God through a KJV Bible teaching preaching church and true man of God. They are getting fewer by the day, but they are still out there. Attending the new-fangled ear-tickling churches who put on the same show or a “contemporary version” on a Sunday morning or Saturday night is not a true Bible teaching church. These “feel good” churches who use the corrupt versions of God’s Word teach corrupt doctrine that helps sinners stay comfortable in their sin. If you visit a church and the Man of God preaches/teaches straight from God’s incorrupt KJV Bible, you will definitely be convicted in your Spirit. Stay there! Those men of God have no problem saying it like it is and counseling from God’s Word, instead of joining us in making excuses for our children’s behaviour. If you are attending a church once a week or less just for a feel good fix, you are not receiving true Godly teaching, run from it! So-called pastors of those churches will be held accountable by God, and so will we if we support them.

“The Peace of God OR Your Peace”

Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of “God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

“I have peace about what I’m doing,” is often the answer for anyone that is seeking to justify their wrong behavior or actions. After all, if one “feels” good about what they are doing it must be good or right! Yet, that which makes something wrong is Scripture. If the Word of God forbids or condemns something, it is sin, and thus wrong. How one “feels” is inconsequential to whether something is right or wrong. This peace that is being experienced is not the peace of God. One does not have the peace of God by doing what is contrary to God’s Word. The peace they have may be peace of mind. They possess this peace because they have thrown out the evidence of the Bible that would convict them of the sin they have done or are doing. They, therefore, are not convicted of their sin and are at peace with themselves. This is the peace the world gives, contrary to “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you;…” (John 14:27).

The peace of God comes from submission and obedience to the Word of God. Notice this peace is not understood by most folk. We are to let this peace of God rule in our hearts, not the peace of mind or of the world. “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” (Colossians 3:15).” –Pastor Murray Douglas

The “peace of mind or of this world” comes when we turn away from church attendance, and soon to follow, searching His Word and spending time with our Lord. I know this because I have been “in the world” and experienced the peace of the world. That peace is nothing compared to the peace of God. Isn’t it something how we can be so easily taken in by satan’s lies and the lies some turn to in the corrupt versions of God’s Word which leave out and change much of God’s original Words that convict. God has preserved His true incorruptible Word in His KJV Word for centuries, and it is “quick” which means it is alive, and it convicts us to get us back on the right track with Him. So many are fooled by “feelings” and “feeling good.” That is just what our, and God’s, enemy wants. After having experienced God’s peace, I have no desire to ever again experience the “false peace” that this world offers.
