7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 but unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
ref. - Ps 104:4 - Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Ps 45:6,7 - Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
In all that we are and all that we do, no matter what we have been called to in Christ, we must exalt his name above all names as it is written. Men have put other names in front of him, they have worshiped false Gods in worshipping men, women, and put other idols before him. But the one thing remains the same. No matter what men do and how many mistakes get put before him, Jesus is still on the right hand of the Father and he has been given power over all things pertaining to heaven and earth. We all have our place and our callings are clearly defined in the word of God. A minister is not a God, nor is he in any way, shape, or form, in position to be compared to Jesus. He is there as a flaming fire, bringing the knowledge of sin to transgressors and to bring those who will believe into a relationship with the one in charge, Jesus Christ. An overseer, of sorts, to guide God's children into the path that is Jesus Christ. The word of God states that there will be no other high priest after the order of Melchisadec except for Jesus Christ.(Hebrews 7:14-17) He will be high priest forever. But man makes idols out of priests and makes high priests still to this day in direct disobedience to the scriptures that we have been given in the Holy Bible.(Matthew 17:3-5) We also put angels in high places and worship them, often praying to them, when the word of God says that they are merely spirits Not Spirits to be worshipped or followed, but spirits. Not the Holy Spirit, but spirits as we will be someday. We speak to those who have passed before us and make requests of those who have no power of delivering such things because we have been misled. The word says that once we pass into the next life that there will be no more remembrance of the former life.(Isa 65:17) In reality, those people that we know, no longer even remember us, nor will we remember them. So, whether we have been placed in a position of leadership or discipleship, we must remember that we are all servants of God in Jesus Christ. Not in Moses, Elias, Mary, or any other name can we reach the Father but in the name of Jesus Christ. If you have been called to be a flaming fire, be a flaming fire, give all that you can and even more, in Jesus' name, to bringing souls to Christ. Nurturing them, lifting them up, correcting them, and ever drawing them closer to God in his Son, Jesus Christ, but stay in the Bible to do so. And if you consider yourself a follower of Christ, or Christian, then listen to what these men have to say, and if they are leading you to Christ through the reinforcement of the word of God, then allow yourself to be drawn to Christ. But remember; in no way, shape, or form is there any way to God but through Jesus Christ.(John 14:6) It has been written for thousands of years and will not change. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.(Hebrews 13:8) Have a great day!!!
