1. When the Lord Jesus Christ said, in Luke 11:44, “Woe unto you, SCRIBES and PHARISEES…”, He spoke to this generation and was “… WRITTEN FOR OUR ADMONITION, upon whom the ENDS OF THE WORLD are come” [1 Corinthians 10:11] He did HATE SCRIBES, but exposed their HYPOCRISY to bring them to REPENTANCE, that He might SAVE them. Brethren, the SPIRIT of SCRIBES is very much evident in the present Church and we do not well if we keep quiet, because we desire to be RELIGIOUSLY CORRECT or for FEAR of what men will say or do. Thus, says the Lord, “BE NOT AFRAID OF THEIR FACES: for I AM WITH THEE to deliver thee, saith the LORD” [Jeremiah 1:8] Let us, in all SINCERITY, CONTEND for the DOCTRINES of Christ, not having any man in mind but Christ, WARNING all men as “… He said unto them in his DOCTRINE, BEWARE OF THE SCRIBES,…” [Mark 12:38] And this, let us do, not in ENVY, HATRED or “… EYESERVICE, as MENPLEASERS; but as the SERVANTS OF CHRIST, doing the WILL OF GOD FROM THE HEART” [Ephesians 6:6]

2. SCRIBES were first mentioned in 2 Samuel 8:17, and grew rapidly into a professional cadre of TEACHERS of the LAW, as PRIESTS paid more attention to RITUALS than MINISTRY of the LAW. By the time of Jesus Christ, PHARISEES, SADDUCEES and HERODIANS had SCRIBES who TAUGHT and INTERPRETED Scriptures to accommodate their excesses. The SPIRIT of SCRIBES is the reason there are DIVISIONS in the Church and SEMINARIES to INSTRUCT Preachers in sectional THEOLOGY. I assure you, there is no culture of BIBLE SCHOOLS or SEMINARIES in the NEW TESTAMENT Church, “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and YE NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU: but as the same ANOINTING TEACHETH YOU ALL THINGS, and is TRUTH, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him” [1 John 22:27] Let no man be deceived, God does not require a professional DIPLOMA or DOCTORATE in THEOLOGY, “For it is GOD WHICH WORKETH IN YOU both to will and to do of his good pleasure” [Philippians 2:13] The choice is yours; BIBLE SCHOOLS will replicate THEOLOGY of SCRIBES in you, “But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and YE NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU: but as the same ANOINTING TEACHETH YOU OF ALL THINGS, AND IS TRUTH, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him” [1 John 2:27]

3. SCRIBES are neither BORN or ORDAINED by God, but forged in those who once LOVED the TRUTH, but driftedt into perfidious GREED and “… being past feeling have GIVEN THEMSELVES UNTO LASCIVIOUSNESS, to work all uncleanness WITH GREEDINESS” [Ephesians 4:19] Beloved, do more than listen to your Bishop; consider also his PASSION for earthly goods and his disposition to be accepted in the MARKETPLACES of this world. It is not my personal OPINION but the DOCTRINE of the Lord, “And he said unto them IN HIS DOCTRINE, BEWARE OF THE SCRIBES, which LOVE to go in LONG CLOTHING, and LOVE SALUTATIONS in the MARKETPLACES, And the CHIEF SEATS in the SYNAGOGUES, and the UPPERMOST ROOMS at FEASTS. Which DEVOUR WIDOW’S HOUSES, and FOR A PRETENCE MAKE LONG PRAYERS: these shall receive greater damnation” [Matthew 12:38-40] Those who turned the Church into a MARKETPLACE, and cover their LUSTS with LONG CLOTHING” of false piety are SCRIBES, “… men of corrupt minds, and DESTITUTE OF THE TRUTH, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such WITHDRAW THYSELF” [1 Timothy 6:5] WATCH your Pastor closely, when a man who once LOVED the TRUTH is compromised by GREED, he no longer speaks against SIN, does not exalt RIGHTEOUSNESS and neglects JUDGMENT, but “… with FEIGNED WORDS MAKE MERCHADISE OF YOU: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not” [2 Peter 2:3]

4. SCRIBES are smart with words and you may never see the SCRIBE in your Pastor until it is too late, and you are SHUT OUT of heaven, “But WOE UNTO YOU, SCRIBES, and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye SHUT UP THE KINGDOM of heaven against men: for ye NEITHER GO IN yourselves, NEITHER SUFFER YE THEM THAT ARE ENTERING TO GO IN” [Matthew 23:13] It is hard to believe, but there are Preachers in the Church hierarchy propelled by the SPIRIT of SCRIBES, like Simon in Samaria, “TO WHOM THEY ALL GAVE HEED, from the least to the greatest, SAYING THIS MAN IS THE GREAT POWER OF GOD” [Acts 8:10] You see, the GOSPEL is not about numbers, but CONFORMITY with the PATTERN of Jesus Christ, and “YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” [Matthew 7:16] After many years of crisscrossing nations in the name of Christ, the harvest is there for all to see, but without condemning any man’s work, the Bible says: “WOE UNTO YOU, SCRIBES and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, YE MAKE HIM TWOFOLD MORE THE CHILD OF HELL than yourselves” [Matthew 23:15] Beloved, break free of those who make merchandise of your SOUL and prepare yourself for the imminent appearance of Jesus Christ, when “… WE WHICH ARE ALIVE and REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1Thessalonians 4:17]

5. Accept Jesus Christ and be CAUGHT UP at His appearance, amen
