The Preacher Must Be Taught.



“For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. Malachi 2:7 New King James Version

Before giving any sermon or lesson in group study the preacher (that is another name for teacher) must be taught the meaning of the Scripture that is being reviewed and how to guide his sheep into putting the application of it into their daily lives. This is something that must be repeated lesson by lesson.

For me if the Holy Spirit does not open my eyes to what is to be learned for my personal life or to share with others in my writing I find it impossible to write two words in an article.

Now this is not the sole domain of preachers.

It is the same method that is to be applied in daily meditation of scripture of the individual.


Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide me in Your divine wisdom so as to enlighten Your cherished children when leading in sermons, Bible study groups or when guiding others to You. I sincerely request this in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. Study all that the bible has to say on the topic you are reviewing. This helps with staying in scriptural context, and that helps with understanding more of God’s word. Good reminder…


    • I also like to read commentaries from those who have studied the Hebrew and Greek writing as many time that gives a deeper understanding of what is being said as well as studying the history, culture and customs of the time it was written in.

      • I can add nothing more to this! You are right completely here. Understanding a bit about the languages can help so much in bible study!


      • It open an amazing world of the Bible and make it so much more relevant to todays world and our personal lives.
