Jealousy is not necessarily a bad thing. It is a sign of love.

When you are in a covenant relationship between you and someone to the exclusion of others there ought to be jealousy when third parties break that bond.

A husband who isn’t jealous when a man starts to spend extended time with his wife does not really love her. God loves us and is in a covenant relationship with us. He gets jealous when we try to share His glory with others.

He told us through Yeshu’a in Matthew 23:9, “do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven”.

This scripture is very unambiguous. Apart from your biological father, no one on earth is deserving of the title Father or other acronyms for father such as daddy, papa or what have.

This is why the Lord’s Prayer begins with “Our Father” – Matthew 6:9.

Respect men of God. Honour them. But do not violate God’s commands to please pastors or other men of God.

No matter how large their congregation or anointing may be, the highest any one should ask of you is “follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” – 1 Corinthians 11:1.

Don’t alter Scripture to fit your Church, rather, alter your church to fit Scripture.
