As of 2/15 of this year all employees not in the field of accounting will be retrained or released. It has been determined by the new administration that accounting is the most relevant field in government, due in part to the leaders past in that field, and therefore all other functions of government will be reassigned. Those unwilling to be retrained will be regarded as irrelevant to the purpose of government and therefore promptly released.
Thank you for your cooperation.
That would be an unwise way to run a government wouldn't it. The position of accounting is an important part of any government or corporation but so are many other functions. How long would a country last in our world without a military to defend it, or a police to keep order. What about a judicial system to help insure that people are not unjustly convicted or unrighteously tormented by wicked people without consequence. Not to mention the departments that keep the roads driveable, the water drinkable, etc.
A problem i have had in the past and have seen in others is recognizing that God's kingdom is no less complex. For a while i couldn't understand why everyone wasn't hearing God the same as i. It seemed pretty clear to me what He was saying and very few seemed to be hearing Him. They were all busy doing something different than what He was telling me to do! What was wrong with these people!
Well the Spirit finally got it through this thick head of mine that God has been moulding people for specific tasks in HIS kingdom and most of them wouldn't be very good at what He had asked me to do because they weren't made to do it. Neither would i be very good at what they were called to do for the same reason. What freedom!!! i don't have to measure up to what someone else is able to accomplish because the same Lord that called, trained, and provided the opportunity and resources to allow them to do what they do, is working in me to make me an overcomer as well! The only thing i need to concentrate on is being the best me i can.
Some people are called AND equipped to be an evangelist and preach before thousands at a time. Some people are called and equipped to raise a family of godly children and may only see a few opportunities to bring someone into the kingdom. Some people are called and equipped to feed thousands of poor people and some a few. Some people are called to stand in the pulpit every week but for every one of them there are many that are called to make sure that it happens as trouble free as possible.
Don't despise everyone that isn't called to do what you are called to do. This, as much as anything else, divides the body one against another, as well as congregation against congregation. He needs us all to do our part and to love one another and the devil would do anything to keep that from happening.
Here are a few examples, there are many more than i could put here. If it hadn't been for people who teach about the prophetic portion of the bible, i might never have been saved. In contrast there are untold numbers of people who would never have been saved if someone wouldn't have fed and clothed them first, yet i have seen people who are called to feed the poor invalidating those who teach the prophetic, and i am sure it has gone both ways.
Another conflict i have witnessed is the love and fire and brimstone crowds. There are people that will only come to the light by being loved into it and there are people that will only come by being told of the consequences if they don't but can't you see that both are an expression of God's love. Is it love when you discipline a child that won't stop wondering into the road where they might get killed?
1st Corinthians 12: 27-31
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
John 17: 18-23
You know, God didn't call me to be Billy Graham, Jack Hayford, or any other person past or present. He didn't charge me with separating the sheep and goats, in fact He told me not to (Matthew 13: 24-30). He called me to hear His voice and do all i can to obey. He has called you to do the same.
