SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe is the purpose of ministering, watching over God’s people and nourishing them with things pertaining to righteousness. “Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth. He will not fail nor be discouraged, Till He has established justice in the earth; And the coastlands shall wait for His law.” Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk on it: “I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness, And will hold our hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles…” Isaiah 42: 1-6 NKJV
SERVANT – From the time your forefathers left Egypt until now, day after day, again and again I sent you my servants the prophets. But they did not listen to me or pay attention. They were stiff-necked and did more evil than their forefathers. Jeremiah 7: 25-26 NIV
Zechariah 1: 6 –…”’Through my servants the prophets I gave your ancestors commands and warnings, but they disregarded them and suffered the consequences. Then they repented and acknowledged that I, the LORD Almighty, had punished them as they deserved and as I had determined to do. ‘” GNT
To Watch Over, Lift, and Strengthen Those Around Us – We at VAL-TE’ also believe we have been made servants of the church of God, who gave us this task to perform for your good. It is the task to communicate his message, which is the secret he hid through all past ages from all human beings but has now revealed to his people. God’s plan is to make known his secret to his people, this rich and glorious secret which he has for all peoples. And the secret is that the Spirit’s presence is shown in some way in each person for the good of all. So we make God known to everyone: If our spiritual gift is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; if it is to encourage others, we should do so.
