1 corinthians 13: 1-13 KJV
Ch 13…. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
HR; tinkling cymbals, clanging gongs peddlers of “the word” these folks are not only noisy and irritating, but offend many people and harden them away from Jesus Christ. Maybe the worst of all they are rooted in deception, having no root in God and no fruit in this world, noisy dead branches in the winds, no sap in the wood no sap in the vine, just noise. terrifying noise like a bad dream.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
HR; The fruit of the Saved above is evidenced above, thank God if we are awake and aware we can see it glaringly opposite from the gong people, lets have discernment and be real in love with God.
HR says; Gongers, tinklers and clangers all have many doctrines, banners, and beliefs, many come from the Dem-on-inations of the day all of which were rooted and founded in human pride, and Jesus Himself condemned sectarianism. Come out of Her my people He cries. Come out of her lest you share in her sins. Yeah I have, I have been there and shared in their sins, because I stopped listening to Gods Spirit, and began listening to “Them!”
Its never the one with the biggest sound system that plays the best music, nor has the true anointing of YHWH
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
HR; we know in …PART…, Paul once said that when we think we know something we need to know that we DON’T know anything as we should! We know in part we prophesy in part, but let us know that we know…NOT… and then prophesy in the FEAR of the Lord God before whom we truly do prophesy.
If you knew that he was right there and watching and listening to you, how brazen would your prophesying be?
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
HR: like a child, but out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants sometimes comes much innocence, and grace and wisdom. child likeness is good, childishness is often the fruit of the peddle.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Ch 14 verse 1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts but rather that you may prophesy.
HR: Follow after real love, real charity, and the love that serves and gives, and lasts forever…
HR; Why prophesy? because true prophesy brings deep edification, and is a fruit of the spirit of wisdom, if we ever needed true Godly wisdom, and true charity , it is now. Forget your gifting and callings of man, and turn your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, then… WAIT!
Wait on him and he will place your foot steps into his paths. amen.
Charity / Love, has heart there’s a lot to the heart, no cymbals, or gongs but life flowing rivers of blood, let that blood be as the blood of Christ in you, the hope of His Glory in your life.
