Idolatry starts with “I”

“Pastor” Micah Wood serves on the pastoral staff at the heretical Ramp Church. At the five minutes mark in the below video, you will witness a very narcigetical message from Micah Wood on Jairus’ daughter from Matthew 9. We do not think the below teaching needs to be explained.

5:10 – “Now the interesting thing is to me, there are many interesting things to me about God’s story – but one of the most interesting things to me is that all throughout the bible you find Jesus telling people to follow him:

“Follow me. I will make you fishers of man.

Drop down your nets and follow me.

Follow me. Let the dead bury their dead. You follow me.

Uh, you know, a man who sets his hand to the plough but looks back is not fit for the kingdom of God. You just follow me.

Peter, don’t worry about what John’s gonna do in his life, you just follow me.”

All through out the bible you see Jesus saying, “Follow me. Follow me. Follow me. Follow me.”

But here we meet a man named Jairus who is a ruler of the synagogue who doesn’t just live in such a way to follow Jesus, there’s something about what he does with his life of worship that causes Jesus to follow him. That Jesus all through out the bible that says, “Follow me. Follow me. Follow me.” And He meets one man that Jesus does not just say, “Follow me,” Jesus says to him, “I’m going to follow you”. Because genuine revival and genuine awakening and the genuine purpose of God for your life does not happen when we occasionally bend ourselves or push ourselves where Jesus is. Genuine revival and awakening and purpose happens when we bend our lives in such a way that Jesus is willing to follow us. And for years and years we’ve had a concept that’s long as we occasionally put ourselves in the middle of whereever Jesus is then we’re doing good.

But what’s really doing good is when you so develop a lifestyle of worship that Jesus and the presence of Jesus follow you around wherever you go.”

    Just read this this morning from John MacArthur Daily Readings

    Our Lord commands that all His followers be evangelistic fishermen. The command “follow Me” in the Greek literally means “come here.” The original text also has the term “after,” which indicates the place we must come to: “Your place is following after Me!” This is His chosen place and posture for you.
