Gabi Lupescu – Pavel obisnuia sa ingrozeasca pe unii cu Evanghelia …pe care o predica

„Ci, fiindca Dumnezeu ne-a gasit vrednici sa ne incredinteze Evanghelia, cautam sa vorbim asa ca sa placem nu oamenilor… ci lui Dumnezeu, care ne cerceteaza inima !”. (1Tes.2:4)

Pavel obisnuia sa ingrozeasca pe unii cu Evanghelia …pe care o predica:”Dar, pe cand vorbea Pavel despre NEPRIHANIRE, despre înfranare si despre JUDEACTA VIITOARE, Felix, ingrozit, a zis: “De asta data, du-te; cand voi mai avea prilej… …te voi chema”. FA 24:25

………Pavel nu propovaduia o evanghelie usoara …a evanghelicilor in general !!!. Ci el predica Evanghelia Evangheliilor,Cuvantul Sublim al lui Dumnezeu !.Asa sa facem si noi…nu ceva de rutina , placand lumii si desfiintand conceptul de judecata universala (in care se include poporul lui Dumnezeu), slabim rolul normativ al legilor desavarsite ale lui Dumnezeu si …responsabilitatea obiectiva.
Totul se subiectivizeaza, se relativizeaza si se psihologizeaza…daca nu vom proceda asemenea acestui slujitor a Lui , ca Pavel , care cauta sa placa Stapanului sau inainte de toate cu riscul vietii sale

Puritan Advice on Discovering God’s Will via Jonathan Parnell, Desiring God


John Flavel:

If therefore in doubtful cases you would discover God’s will, govern yourselves in your search after it by the following rules:

  1. Get the true fear of God upon your hearts. Be really afraid of offending him. God will not hide his mind from such a soul. „The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will show them his covenant” (Psalm 25:14).
  2. Study the Word more, and the concerns and interests of the world less. The Word is light to your feet (Psalm 119:105), that is, it has a discovering and directing usefulness as to all duties to be done and dangers to be avoided. . .
  3. Reduce what you know into practice, and you shall know what is your duty to practice. „If any man do his will he shall know of the doctrine” (John 7:17). „A good understanding have all they that do his commandments” (Psalm 111:10).
  4. Pray for illumination and direction in the way that you should go. Beg the Lord to guide you in straits and that he would not permit you to fall into sin. . .
  5. And this being done, follow Providence so far as it agrees with the Word and no further. There is no use to be made of Providence against the Word, but in subservience to it.

Who was John Flavel (via)

jfla.jpgJohn Flavel (1628 – 1691)

John Flavel (or Flavell) was born in 1628 in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. He was the son of Richard Flavel, a minister who died of the plague in 1665 while in prison for nonconformity. John Flavel was educated by his father in the ways of religion, then “plied his studies hard” as a commoner at University College, Oxford. In 1650, he was ordained by the presbytery at Salisbury. He settled in Diptford, where he honed his numerous gifts.

He married Joan Randall, a godly woman, who died while giving birth to their first child in 1655. The baby died as well. After a year of mourning, Flavel married Elizabeth Stapell and was again blessed with a close, God-fearing marriage, as well as children.

In 1656, Flavel accepted a call to be minister in the thriving seaport of Dartmouth. He earned a smaller income there, but his work was more profitable; many were converted. One of his parishioners wrote of Flavel, “I could say much, though not enough of the excellency of his preaching; of his seasonable, suitable, and spiritual matter; of his plain expositions of Scripture; his talking method, his genuine and natural deductions, his convincing arguments, his clear and powerful demonstrations, his heart-searching applications, and his comfortable supports to those that were afflicted in conscience. In short, that person must have a very soft head, or a very hard heart, or both, that could sit under his ministry unaffected” (Erasmus Middleton, Evangelical Biography, 4:50-51). read more….
