Controlling the Brotherhood
Mainstream Christianity has in the last three decades embraced a doctrine that needs closer examination. When asked, ‘who is your covering, who is your spiritual father, or your mentor,’ how do you reply? Using the Holy Scriptures, as our source for finding the truth, let us read what Jesus said.
Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
He is saying the Anointed One or the Anointing is your teacher, not man.
It may sound confusing knowing that one of the ascension gift ministries is that of the teacher.
(ref. Eph .4) So how is it that we are commanded not to call anyone teacher or mentor. When Jesus says, “for one is your teacher, the Christ.” He is saying the Anointed One or the Anointing is your teacher, not man. “The Christ,” is defined as the Anointed One, Jesus.
These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
1 John 2:26,27
It is very important that we correctly discern between a flamboyant teacher and the Anointing. Eloquent speakers lavishing hyper-sensationalism can deceive many into thinking they are speaking the truth. However, rightly dividing the word of truth requires one to seek the Anointed One within. All should beware, there is a stricter accountability for those who are called teacher.
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.
