Know Your Teachers
By Joel Joseph
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
Conclusion by Pastor Boyd

Show me your friends and I’ll tell you what sort of person you are. This is because people identify with what or whom they like. If you identify with a biblically holy individual, there may well be a degree of similar influence and rub-off on you.

As we go forward into critical prophetic times, we go forward into the dual outpouring of the Spirit of God and the spirit of the devil (Antichrist), both of which intensify.

In the things of God we need biblical, Spirit enlightened truth, spiritual gifts like discernment and revelation. We need spiritual weapons, study, prayer, and holiness being able to put on the whole armour of God, his word.

As a believer you need to use all that is available to you to stand strongly and securely in these days.

Perhaps more important than anything else, is your teacher and the spiritual input into your life.

Know your teacher – and know him well!

We are in a time period in which the Bible says, “The love of many will grow cold because of the increase of wickedness.” (Matthew 24:12) “False prophets will arise and mislead many.” (Matthew 24:11) “There will be lying signs and wonders.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

These (above) are just a few of the many characteristics facing the end-time church, and it’s going to get a whole lot more intense quickly.

These are dangerous but incredibly exciting days too.

Your teacher:
A Bible teacher must be: •Above reproach, •sober-minded, •not greedy or quarrelsome, •able to rule his house well. •He must not be a novice in the word of God, • He must not have any pride. •He must be able to endure hardship. (1 Timothy 3:1, 2 Timothy 2:2, Titus 2:7-8, Ephesians 4:11)

The duty of a Bible teacher is not just to inform but transform you. That is only effectively done by one who himself has been radically transformed.

The overall aim, objective and goal of a Bible teacher is to glorify God and His kingdom.

John 7:18 “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true and no unrighteousness is in Him.”

Your trustworthy Bible teacher must be: •Full of knowledge (of God), •understanding of the word and must operate in •wisdom – all Spirit inspired and led. Godly wisdom causes you to fly away, above the world! (Psalm 90:10)

1 Corinthians 4:15 “Though you might have ten thousand instructors in Messiah, yet you do not have many fathers...”

You can receive from a great many, but you should have very few spiritual fathers – those whom you can really trust and feel safe with. Your spiritual fathers (or ministries) must be those who cause you to grow well, in all truth.

Luke 6:40 “A disciple is not above his teacher. He who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.”
What if your source of spiritual growth is suspect and you can see the gross error? What if your teacher is actually stunting your growth because he hasn’t grown? There is a right way to leave a church and move on. Don’t cause strife! Now, consider this amazing verse below:

Psalm 119:99-104 “I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word...Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.”

In all these things your attitude must be that you are receiving from, and being taught by God Himself and not that teacher in front of you. He’s just the vehicle. Make that your prayer.

This verse above will apply perfectly to Israel after the rapture. God Himself will be their teacher!

Teachers to beware of:
▪Beware of those who never, or rarely teach on the cross of Calvary, and its application.

▪Beware of those who present “another Jesus.” This is a crossless Christ, or even those who have a Jesus forever on the cross, perpetually dying, like the Catholics, which is “another Jesus.”

▪Beware of those using manipulative techniques.

▪Beware of those with repeating failed predictions and general teaching error.

▪Beware of those with hobby-horse tunnel-vision, trying to flog a doctrinal dead horse.

▪Beware of those who always simply repeat what others have being teaching. A teacher in his own calling will be successful.

▪Beware of those who never use or apply scripture to present events, like politics.

▪Beware of those who never preach on the hard sayings, the judgement and wrath of God, the goodness and severity of God, and both heaven and hell!

▪Beware of those who are anti-Israel or silent on Israel. If ever there is a time when the church needs to know all things about Israel – it is now.

When Israel is in the news, especially from a prophetic point of view, a big warning sign and flashing red light for a church is its silence on the issue. Run away from such churches.

Most teachers of biblical error don’t endure, neither does their false doctrine.

A trustworthy teacher is one who has lost his life in the world – for God’s sake and yours.

Treatment of God’s teachers by false teachers and brethren:
Jeremiah 18:18 “They said, ‘Come let us devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us attack him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.’”

2 Chronicles 36:14-16 “All the leaders of the priests and the people transgressed more and more, according to the abominations of the nations, and defiled the house of the Lord which He had consecrated in Jerusalem. And the Lord God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers...but they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, till there was no remedy.”

Jeremiah 7:23-24 “Obey My voice and I shall be your God, and you shall be My people...Yet they did not obey nor incline their ear, but walked in the counsels and imaginations of their own evil heart, and went backwards and not forward.”

You could entitle this verse above: “How to backslide successfully.”

2 Peter 3:3 “Know this, that in the last days scoffers will come walking according to their own lusts, and saying, ‘where is the promise of His coming? For all things will continue as they have.’”

All false doctrine comes from the use of Bible verses taken out of context, misused by a wrong spirit, or wrongly interpreted. All false doctrine can be corrected by the use of other verses, led by the Spirit of truth. The teacher must know the word by and in the Spirit – thoroughly!

There are many more Bible teachers out there that are full of hogwash than not, and a few that are really excellent. Be discerning.

▪Be careful what your eyes see and ears hear. Be careful what you do and where you go. Be careful of your thoughts. Be holy!

Psalm 132:4-5 “I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the mighty God of Jacob.”
Stand securely dear brethren, and go forward – forever forward. Know that our Lord is with you plus innumerable companies of angels. (2 Kings 6:16-17)

Conclusion by Pastor Boyd

Through the years as I have learned more and more about God's protection, I have become very angel conscious. I believe all Christians should be aware of God's protective power available to them in the heavenlies.

Angels Watching Over Us
God says he assigns angels to watch over us. Do you realize angels are watching you right now, that they watch you all the time?

Do you really comprehend the power of God's angels? Michael the archangel lead the war that cast Satan out of heaven making him and his minions that followed him fallen angels.

The angels of God have a job description too - to do battle for God's people! Angels, however, cannot intervene for you if you do not believe. The ministry of angels is something you must receive. If you walk in disbelief, you will grieve God and his holy angels as well.

Their Assignment
Angels are on assignment, angels who were sent from God, mighty supernatural beings who are warring and battling on our behalf as they did for Jesus.

In Psalms 91:11(NLV) it says, “For He will tell His angels to care for you and keep you in all your ways.”

Our ways must be of obedience and service to God. Maranantha…..

Great post and thank you. I was greatly blessed by the teaching at Austin Bible church for nearly 40 years where the doctrine was spot on with an emphasis on maintaining one's spiritual walk with the Lord. It makes a huge difference when, having believed on Jesus Christ, a Christian learns the importance of our daily walk with Him, via confession of sins, study in the Word, prayer and fellowship with other like-minded believers.

Conclusion by Pastor Boyd

Through the years as I have learned more and more about God's protection, I have become very angel conscious. I believe all Christians should be aware of God's protective power available to them in the heavenlies.

Angels Watching Over Us
God says he assigns angels to watch over us. Do you realize angels are watching you right now, that they watch you all the time?

Do you really comprehend the power of God's angels? Michael the archangel lead the war that cast Satan out of heaven making him and his minions that followed him fallen angels.

The angels of God have a job description too - to do battle for God's people! Angels, however, cannot intervene for you if you do not believe. The ministry of angels is something you must receive. If you walk in disbelief, you will grieve God and his holy angels as well.

Their Assignment
Angels are on assignment, angels who were sent from God, mighty supernatural beings who are warring and battling on our behalf as they did for Jesus.

In Psalms 91:11(NLV) it says, “For He will tell His angels to care for you and keep you in all your ways.”

Our ways must be of obedience and service to God. Maranantha…..

Know Your Teachers

Conclusion by Pastor Boyd

Show me your friends and I’ll tell you what sort of person you are. This is because people identify with what or whom they like. If you identify with a biblically holy individual, there may well be a degree of similar influence and rub-off on you.

As we go forward into critical prophetic times, we go forward into the dual outpouring of the Spirit of God and the spirit of the devil (Antichrist), both of which intensify.

In the things of God we need biblical, Spirit enlightened truth, spiritual gifts like discernment and revelation. We need spiritual weapons, study, prayer, and holiness being able to put on the whole armour of God, his word.

As a believer you need to use all that is available to you to stand strongly and securely in these days.

Perhaps more important than anything else, is your teacher and the spiritual input into your life.

Know your teacher – and know him well!

We are in a time period in which the Bible says, “The love of many will grow cold because of the increase of wickedness.” (Matthew 24:12) “False prophets will arise and mislead many.” (Matthew 24:11) “There will be lying signs and wonders.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

These (above) are just a few of the many characteristics facing the end-time church, and it’s going to get a whole lot more intense quickly.

These are dangerous but incredibly exciting days too.

Your teacher:
A Bible teacher must be: •Above reproach, •sober-minded, •not greedy or quarrelsome, •able to rule his house well. •He must not be a novice in the word of God, • He must not have any pride. •He must be able to endure hardship. (1 Timothy 3:1, 2 Timothy 2:2, Titus 2:7-8, Ephesians 4:11)

The duty of a Bible teacher is not just to inform but transform you. That is only effectively done by one who himself has been radically transformed.

The overall aim, objective and goal of a Bible teacher is to glorify God and His kingdom.

John 7:18 “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true and no unrighteousness is in Him.”

Your trustworthy Bible teacher must be: •Full of knowledge (of God), •understanding of the word and must operate in •wisdom – all Spirit inspired and led. Godly wisdom causes you to fly away, above the world! (Psalm 90:10)

1 Corinthians 4:15 “Though you might have ten thousand instructors in Messiah, yet you do not have many fathers...”

You can receive from a great many, but you should have very few spiritual fathers – those whom you can really trust and feel safe with. Your spiritual fathers (or ministries) must be those who cause you to grow well, in all truth.

Luke 6:40 “A disciple is not above his teacher. He who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.”
What if your source of spiritual growth is suspect and you can see the gross error? What if your teacher is actually stunting your growth because he hasn’t grown? There is a right way to leave a church and move on. Don’t cause strife! Now, consider this amazing verse below:

Psalm 119:99-104 “I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word...Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.”

In all these things your attitude must be that you are receiving from, and being taught by God Himself and not that teacher in front of you. He’s just the vehicle. Make that your prayer.

This verse above will apply perfectly to Israel after the rapture. God Himself will be their teacher!

Teachers to beware of:
▪Beware of those who never, or rarely teach on the cross of Calvary, and its application.

▪Beware of those who present “another Jesus.” This is a crossless Christ, or even those who have a Jesus forever on the cross, perpetually dying, like the Catholics, which is “another Jesus.”

▪Beware of those using manipulative techniques.

▪Beware of those with repeating failed predictions and general teaching error.

▪Beware of those with hobby-horse tunnel-vision, trying to flog a doctrinal dead horse.

▪Beware of those who always simply repeat what others have being teaching. A teacher in his own calling will be successful.

▪Beware of those who never use or apply scripture to present events, like politics.

▪Beware of those who never preach on the hard sayings, the judgement and wrath of God, the goodness and severity of God, and both heaven and hell!

▪Beware of those who are anti-Israel or silent on Israel. If ever there is a time when the church needs to know all things about Israel – it is now.

When Israel is in the news, especially from a prophetic point of view, a big warning sign and flashing red light for a church is its silence on the issue. Run away from such churches.

Most teachers of biblical error don’t endure, neither does their false doctrine.

A trustworthy teacher is one who has lost his life in the world – for God’s sake and yours.

Treatment of God’s teachers by false teachers and brethren:
Jeremiah 18:18 “They said, ‘Come let us devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us attack him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.’”

2 Chronicles 36:14-16 “All the leaders of the priests and the people transgressed more and more, according to the abominations of the nations, and defiled the house of the Lord which He had consecrated in Jerusalem. And the Lord God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers...but they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, till there was no remedy.”

Jeremiah 7:23-24 “Obey My voice and I shall be your God, and you shall be My people...Yet they did not obey nor incline their ear, but walked in the counsels and imaginations of their own evil heart, and went backwards and not forward.”

You could entitle this verse above: “How to backslide successfully.”

2 Peter 3:3 “Know this, that in the last days scoffers will come walking according to their own lusts, and saying, ‘where is the promise of His coming? For all things will continue as they have.’”

All false doctrine comes from the use of Bible verses taken out of context, misused by a wrong spirit, or wrongly interpreted. All false doctrine can be corrected by the use of other verses, led by the Spirit of truth. The teacher must know the word by and in the Spirit – thoroughly!

There are many more Bible teachers out there that are full of hogwash than not, and a few that are really excellent. Be discerning.

▪Be careful what your eyes see and ears hear. Be careful what you do and where you go. Be careful of your thoughts. Be holy!

Psalm 132:4-5 “I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the mighty God of Jacob.”
Stand securely dear brethren, and go forward – forever forward. Know that our Lord is with you plus innumerable companies of angels. (2 Kings 6:16-17)
