Leadership -How?

JUST FINISHED EDITING

ADDITION TO "ARE YOU READY?"
as follows:

ALL active anointed ones, including the governing body of "Jehovah's Witnesses" must keep a scriptural principle in mind. This principle must guide not only all anointed who proselytize, but also all those who seek spiritual guidance and understanding from such ones.
That principle is found at 1Cor.3:4,5 and 1Cor.1:12,13.
Today there are many professed Chosen Ones who are actively preaching. There is the small committee of men on the "governing body", Robert King, "Perimeno", "AblebodiedMan", Sas Gavril, myself, and others.
Should any among those who learn from these; surrender their loyalty, faith, or power of scrutiny over to any of these?
Should these prophets or teachers expect such from recipients of their spiritual provisions?
What did the scriptures above assert?

Within those contexts, both 1Cor.1:11 and 3:3 point to the result of such baseless loyalty.
All chosen slaves of God have no reason to boast (1Cor.4:7,6; Luke17:10),
...much less to covet the trust and loyalty, which belong exclusively to God and Christ.
As 1Cor.3:7,11,21,23 and 1Cor.1:13,25,27,28,29,30,31 express, only the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ deserve the loyalty, faith, praise, and thanks of all. Those faithfully feeding Christ's sheep, do so by provisions from the Master. He deserves the credit.

The most any Chosen worker of God should hope for, is that those who receive what is offered, will realize the true source of all light, truth and life. The wise anointed servant prays that all possible, will give their loyalty, faith, praise, and thanks
to God and Christ, by a readers respect of the scriptures offered.
Our hope and goal should harmonize with that of God's and Christ's...
(John14:6; 6:44). According to those scriptures, the only spiritual destination is God and Christ, to whom all Chosen slaves should point their students to.
Still within that context, Paul exposes the spiritual condition of any who lack this mature perspective...
1Cor.3:1,2,3
Such ones are exposed as lacking spiritual maturity, and a deviation from the direction of Holy Spirit.
Simply stated, no Chosen One has been granted by God, to assume God's station;
nor to deflect the glory, praise, loyalty, gratitude, credit, obedience, submission, or trust
that are due God and Christ alone.
(Psalm62:2; Prov.3:5,6; Luke4:8; Mark12:30; Psalm118:8,9; Isa.2:22; Psalm146:3; Jer.17:5; 1John4:1; Col.3:23,24)
Woe to the one who expects anything else,
and woe to the one who gives anything else!
(Eze.14:10,8; Rev.13:8)

Yet we know that such jealous conflict between teachers whose doctrines lack harmony, is inevitable.
Matt.18:7; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14,15; Matt.24:4,5,24,25
Why?
1Cor.11:19; Mal.3:18; Rom.8:19

Does this mean that there is no station due a faithful slave of Christ?
No. God has designated positions within the Body of Christ
(1Cor.12:18,28; Heb.13:17,24; Eze.3:17; Acts20:28; 1Cor.16:16; 1Tim.5:17; Rev.4:10,11).
Those serving God with endurance who provide fine fruit, must be recognized, so that spiritual famine can be alleviated
(1Cor.4:1; Matt.10:40,41,42; 2Cor.5:20; Rev.22:17; Jer.26:5; 29:19).
Christ, through the scriptures, has equipped each one who desires to do God's will,
to be able to recognize those of His servants, who offer fine provisions (John7:17,18; 3:34).
Those who do, should have what they offer, considered and appreciated for what it is....God's provision, not man's.
(Phil.4:8,9; Rom.14:18; Ps.89:7; Mal.2:7; Matt.10:20; 2Cor.2:17; Rev.1:20)
The relative authority of such a one, is from God (Eph.4:7,8,11,12; 1Cor.12:28).

Therefore,
let us all take note of those who expect the fear, devotion, and glory, which are due God alone (2Cor.11:13; Matt.7:15; Phil.3:18,19; James3:15)
as well as recognizing those who expect their students to learn from God.
(John7:16,17; Matt.7:20; Phil.1:27; 2:29; 1Thess.5:12; 1Cor.16:18; Heb.13:7)

  1. Sister Pearl,

    Well said and true.

    Ps 75:
    We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks to you,
    And your name is near.
    Men have to declare your wondrous works.
     2 “For I proceeded to take a set time;
    I myself began judging with uprightness.
     3 The earth and all its inhabitants being dissolved,
    It was I that adjusted its pillars.” Se′lah.
     4 I said to the foolish ones: “Do not be foolish,”
    And to the wicked ones: “Do not exalt the horn.
     5 Do not exalt YOUR horn on high.
    Do not speak with an arrogant neck.
     6 For neither from the east nor from the west,
    Nor from the south is there an exalting.
     7 For God is the judge.
    This one he abases, and that one he exalts.
     8 For there is a cup in the hand of Jehovah,
    And the wine is foaming, it is full of mixture.
    And he will surely pour out its dregs from it;
    All the wicked ones of the earth will drain [them] out, drink [them].”
     9 But as for me, I shall tell [of it] to time indefinite;
    I will make melody to the God of Jacob.
    10 And all the horns of the wicked ones I shall cut down.
    The horns of the righteous one will be exalted.
    To the director on stringed instruments. A melody. Of A′saph. A song.

    As you say may all of us give all glory and praise and honor to Jehovah and Jesus as they through the holy spirit teach us who are really undeserving all of the wonderful things of the Kingdom.

    May we treat each other with humility and respect.
