Often the preacher takes some abuse for the sermons he preaches. Yet, if he is listening to the Lord, he is in reality only the mailman. When the sermon is Bible based and the preacher is Spirit-filled, then the Lord is responsible for the sermon and for it's contents! With that in mind, consider what it would be like if the Lord Himself came here to preach this evening. Many folks have the impression that Jesus was some sort of soft spoken, mild-mannered wimp of a preacher. But, I believe that Jesus was willing to preach the truth and expose evil among His people. Regardless of what people think, everything is not OK with the Lord! Sometimes sin must be rebuked and evil dealt with. So, what would it be like if the Lord came here this evening, looked around and began to preach to this church? In the book of Revelation, there are 7 churches mentioned. Jesus took the time to speak to all of them. Only 2, Smyrna - the persecuted church, and Philadelphia - the evangelistic church, did not receive a complaint from Jesus. 5 churches were rebuked for their failures. It might be today that some of the traits that caused Jesus to rebuke these churches, might be found here at Gilead. If that is the case, then we must deal with these flaws. How would Jesus preach to us if He came here today? Would all be in order? Or would the Lord find things to speak against? This evening, let's listen in as JESUS brings the message. Let's notice the 5 rebukes He levels at His people.
