The Epistle of Christ

"... our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" 2 Corinthians 3:5-6.
I’m an epistle/letter of Christ, written with the Spirit of the living God. What’s written is manifestly declared on my heart and can be read by all men. He called me nothing else except the kingdom of heaven, not even to preach about Moses, the Jews but Christ. I determine not to know anything among you also, "save Jesus Christ, and him crucified" 1 Corinthians 2:2.

I’m a letter of Christ; meaning he made me a minister of the New Testament, not the letter. I only preach Christ, not the old covenant, "for the letter killeth ...." 2 Corinthians 3:6. That’s the reason why it was discontinued, the first covenant and all it’s ordinances was a disaster, whether it was good or bad, it makes no difference, for as far as I am aware, it was and still is, the ministration of condemnation. "For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second" Hebrews 8:7.
God made us able ministers of the New Testament, a better covenant, "which was established upon better promises" Hebrews 8:6. Don’t worry too much folks, our sufficiency is of God. I don’t flirt with the Old Covenant, there is nothing good in it for me.
When I minister to you, the intention is not to kill you as do the old covenant. Again, it’s not like I am dominating over your faith as is sometimes thought. I have no intention to have dominion over anyone’s faith whatsoever, but am a helper of "your joy: for by faith ye stand" 2 Corinthians 1:24.
My desire is, that "ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end" 2 Corinthians 1:13.
Read the word of God, subscribe to it whole, for by it alone you shall be able to stand the test of your time here on Earth.
I’m a minister of Christ! The vail has been taken away for good. "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" 2 Corinthians 3:16-18.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

"Be not ye therefore partakers …

Christ in you the hope of glory!

God created all things by Jesus Christ, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" Ephesians 3:12
Faith, not your own, but that we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
By the faith of him, "the dispensation of the grace of God", was given to us also. Paul says, "by revelation he made known unto me the mystery...Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed...by the Spirit." Ephesians 3:3-5. The revelation is unique my friend.
He wrote also saying, "Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:8-9. We don’t just fellowship anyway anyway but we’re enlightened, an…
