Anonymous: A Question From A Brother

Pastor please apart from a pastor having the responsibility to see to the spiritual growth of the church, does he also have the respinsibility to see to it that members are in gainful employment and doing well in life?

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Brother

Apart from a pastor feeding God's flock with spiritual food, he is also obligated to see to the general welfare of each member of the assembly.

If a pastor just preaches the Word of God behind the pulpit and does not concern himself with the natural life of the people, he is just a preacher/minister of the Gospel. He is not really pastoring. A pastor means a shepherd or an overseer, so he oversees or shepherds the flock, apart from preaching.

He corrects, he rebukes, he discourages and encourages, and he guides the congregation in many ways.

A pastor, therefore, must concern himself with marriages in the church, the employment of his flock, their education, their health, etc. etc. etc. He must have the people at heart. Their concern is his concern, and that's why he is in constant prayer for his flock.

When the people are gainfully employed and are marrying, schooling, and doing well in life, a pastor becomes very happy because his burden lightens.

For instance, in our little assembly, brother Joel has employed a few brethren. That reduces my burden significantly when it comes to employment. Brother Archibold has employed a couple of brethren, too. It further lessens my burden.

I try to get the people educated or employed with the help and support from my wife.

So, yes, a pastor must be interested in the general welfare of his flock, not only when it comes to employment.

Good evening, Pastor. Please do pastors pay tithes, and if so, who do they pay their titithes to?  Thank you

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Brother

Yes, a pastor must pay tithe. All Christians must pay tithe, without which God sees us as robbers.

A pastor must pay tithe to another pastor. Unlike other church members who pay tithe to their churches, where they get their spiritual food, a pastor can pay tithe to a particular pastor and later decide to pay his tithe to another pastor. He can also decide to pay his tithe to a particular pastor all the time.

So, a church member should pay tithe where he/she fellowships, but a pastor can pay tithe to different pastors at different times.

Pastor, please if a husband is not faithful to his wife and lives in sin with another woman and is still in the church, is it going to affect the church and if so why should he continue to be in the church because the prophet said the sin in the church is what is not making it to grow. Thank you pastor.

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Sister

An unfaithful husband is a curse to his family. The prophet spoke strongly against adultery. If a person is in adultery, he must even find it uncomfortable to be in Church services because that sin will make him guilty and the respect he has for the Lord will not make him comfortable to be in His presence. Believers are not to live in sin, and I have been preaching against that. It's a demon in people that make them live that kind of life, and they need to confess and let the church help them in prayer. If the person is willing to quit that behaviour, the Lord comes in, but if the person denies the act and is not willing to live a righteous life, then the Lord can't help him.

He can only feel comfortable in the house of God whilst living in sin when God's grace has not found him and such a person will be wasting his years in the house of God and will miss the rapture if he doesn't repent. It is the Lord's kindness and grace that brings us to repentance.

The church is not like a company where one can be sacked or suspended at any time. The church is the House of God and a clinic for sinners. No one knows when God's grace will find someone to change him, but I will never tolerate any sin of any sort in the church. When it comes to me, I deal with it, but I can't force it when the people deny the act since it's between them and the Lord.

I have said this, and I will say it again. A man should not be friends with a woman, no matter what situation it is. Anytime we advise couples who intend marrying, I tell them.

A man should be friends with men, and a woman should be friends with women. Brother Branham said that in the question and answers session, and I quote, " keep them in Christian company as long as you possibly can. Keep them with... If it's a girl, keep her with Christian girls; Christian boys, vice-versa..".

It's my sincerest prayer that every couple in the church will be faithful and loyal to their partners.

Please can a message believer take communion in a denominational Church, since they have it in the morning


Monday, 22 January 2024
Pastor Idun: A Question From A Sister

No! What the denominations take is not the Lord's supper. It's the Lord's breakfast because they take it in the morning. We don't have the Lord's breakfast in the Bible.

There's a reason why the Communion is taken in the evening. The evening is very symbolic.

The bread the denominations take is not unleavened. It must be unleavened! The drink too must be alcoholic wine to symbolize that the Blood of the Lord has not lost its power, but they take fruit juice!

Because the Communion they take has no resemblance with what is in the Bible, do not partake of it.

I believe this generation will see the coming of the Lord Jesus. If this generation doesn’t do it,
60-0303 - Former And Latter Rain

Paragraph 18
Rev. William Marrion Branham .

Pastor please throw light on what prophet meant by that generation will see the coming of the Lord

God bless you.

Pastor Idun: A Question From A Brother

What the prophet said about that generation seeing the coming of the Lord was fulfilled three years after he said that.

Unfortunately, many Message believers think of the coming of the Lord the same way denominations think about the coming of the Lord. Many denominational believers put the second coming of the Lord in the future. But to a real genuine Message believer, the second coming of the Lord has already happened. We are only waiting for our body change.

The prophet said, at the coming of the Lord, the seventh angel must be on earth. So the Lord came when the seventh angel was on earth.

Consider the following quote:

THE BREACH BETWEEN THE SEVEN CHURCH AGES AND THE SEVEN SEALS 63-0317E

74-2 {40} Now, you see, I'm just not making that up. That's what...It's THUS SAITH THE LORD. I'll read it to you out of the Book: the sounding of the seventh angel's message, the mystery of God should ne finished that's been declared by His holy prophets. That's the prophets who has wrote the Word. The sounding of the seventh church Age, The last Church Age, all the loose ends that through these church ages have been probed at, will be wound up together. And when the Seals are broke, and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head. Now remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming.

The above quote is the fulfilment of Revelation 10: 1-7. There are two angels mentioned in Revelation 10:1-7. The first Angel (in verse one) is Christ. The second angel (in verse 7) is the angel to the laodicean church age, who is the prophet of Malachi 4. The coming of the Lord was in 1963 when the seventh angel was still on earth according to the quote in the BREACH.

Many Message believers are confused about the seventh seal and the seven thunders. If you were in church last Wednesday, it would have been made clearer to you. I explained that quite well.

We know that the seventh seal is recorded in Revelation 8:1 where there was 30 minutes silence. But God's prophet said, the seventh seal is also Revelation 10:1-7.

In other words, the content of Revelation 8:1 of silence is what has been written in Revelation 10: 1-7.

In Revelation 10:1-7, God had come down ( the coming of the Lord). That is why the angels quit worshipping in Revelation 8:1. There was no God in heaven to worship. He had descended.

Consider the following quote:

Revelation chapter 5 part 2 - 1961 paragraph 207:

The Seven and last one of these seals, when they're opened, is found in Revelations the 10th chapter: there was a mighty Angel (which was Christ) came down and put one foot on the land and one on the sea, and raised up His hand, and says, "the day is finished. Time is run out. It's all over. Time shall be no more."... we're right in that front yard of it right now. See? The last one of them is Revelations 10. Foot on land and on sea ; time had run out; redemption is over; now He comes in as the Lion. He was a Lamb then; now He comes in as Lion of the tribe of Judah.
