What a man listens to forms a life in him, when you become a man that listens to foolish talk in no time you may begin to respond to what you hear.
“Every words we hear are in seed form that will yield a response. For every word listened to demands a response”
Every man takes after what they hear. The response expected of you from every word you hear is obedience. All will become what they hear. Every man will become what and who they listen to.
“When a man listen to the preaching of Christ and give a corresponding response to it, He will become Christ’s, not just Christ in spirit but also in the mortal flesh”
We saw the Apostle Paul saying that our message is the preaching of Christ
2 Corinthians 4:5 FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
“What will birth many Christ’s in churches is when we begin to preach Christ to men”
Apostle Paul by the Spirit of God said we do not preach ourselves but we preach Christ. When a man preaches himself he is only preparing to have a people that will be like Him.
“The product of every man’s obedience is as a result of what he has listened to”
You will understand through Jesus that He speaks like the Father and testifies like the Father because He hears the Father, even Jesus said the Holy Spirit that we have will not speak of Himself but He will speak that He hears. So it tells that the Spirit of God gives response to what He hears the Father and the Son speak. Not a servant to Them but They are One.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK: and he will shew you things to come.
You see, we give response to what we hear, even the angels too they respond to what they hear from the Father.
Psalms 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye HIS ANGELS, that excel in strength, THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, HEARKENING UNTO THE VOICE OF HIS WORD.
So when we keep hearing Christ we will keep behaving like Christ and we’ll give response according to the counsel of the Father’s will. You will notice that some men listen to the Pastor in their local churches and when you hear them speak they sound like that Pastor, it’s because they have stayed under their Pastor’s ministration for a while. So through the preaching of Christ you will see the true church arise and all looking like Christ.
Finally, the essence of preaching Christ is that men will turn to the Lord, so that the light of the gospel of Christ will keep shining upon them and the light is in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
When you read the article THE THREE EFFECTS OF GOD’S WORD IN A MAN’S HEART it will explain this scripture more to you. So as we preach Christ men will come into the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ because the word of God is light and Jesus is light and Father is the Father of light, it turns away veils from men and open their eyes to behold their Lord. The essence of preaching is Christ, when He is not preached the remains we will have is ourselves but God forbid. We will keep preaching Christ.
