Are You Called By God?

Jeremiah 1:1-10

Jeremiah’s early call is documented and proclaimed to the world. The fact that Jeremiah was ordained before he was formed in his mother’s womb has two separate and distinct messages for us. These messages are spoken loud and clear by God through Jeremiah.

The first message is about abortion. The people who are for abortion say that if the fetus is aborted before the third month, it has not been formed and that is not murder. This scripture is proof they are wrong. If Jeremiah had been aborted before the third month, before he had been formed in his mother’s womb, the world would have lost a great prophet.

God doesn’t give children to people just so they will have children. Each child is born with certain talents to pursue. Some may become school teachers, some may become congressman, etc. The fact is that God has already equipped these people to do a job for Him. God wants us to thrive as a nation and satan wants to stop God. That is not going to happen.

Satan is trying, through abortion, to manipulate our nation and the other nations of the world to conform to his agenda. If he can stop at least some of the great people God has already given a mission, he will be able to dictate the outcome of wars and set many nations against their neighbors.

As Christians, we should study God’s word and listen to Him. Pay no attention to the world. Stand fast against any scientist, congressman, or any other person that tries to push abortion. This is our duty as Christians (John 14:15).

The second message is to not let the world dictate the education of this country. There have been many great preachers and Apostles who could not read or write.

When Jesus chose the Apostles, he didn’t choose those who were well educated, he chose those who would be faithful and follow Him. Some of the Apostles could neither read nor write. Yet they were chosen to carry God’s Word to the world. These men learned to read and write from each other

One of these fisherman who only knew how to catch fish and count money, became the “rock” of the foundation of the church and delivered the first sermon after the day of Pentecost. This man who could not write his name, was equipped by God and led the movement of the church to his very death.

Today if some of the preachers who are turned out of the “mind mill” we call a college were told they would have to stop preaching or die, we would have a lot more bus drivers. God doesn’t call anyone to His service that He is not willing to equip for that particular service. Yes, we need the colleges, but they need to be regulated. No one who has not been called by God should be allowed to attend a seminary. After a person is called, they should study on their own for at least two years. In this time God will help them study and teach them the things He wants them to preach. Not every preacher or teacher has the same message. After God has given them the message He wants them to preach or teach, then let them go to college to learn the administration of the church.

These ten verses of scripture, if we heed them, could bring our nation to serve God. Study them and listen to God. Tell the world to be quiet.
