Test Your Spiritual Eyesight
“Many people enjoyed Mark Jobe’s keynote speech at ‘Founder’s Week’, his speech pretended to be positive, strong and exciting. Americans love messages that flatter God without requiring our response of obedience. Mark did an interesting job of making God sound great, but egotistical. Hint: when you listen to any sermon you probably look for obvious errors, but you should also practice looking for what truths they skip over. A man of God would preach against specific sins with this passage (Isaiah 6), because Isaiah was naming specific sins. As you read this report, you will see several failures that need an answer. Does Mark Jobe value the gospel, or the Holy Spirit’s work inside the MBI family? No. When you carefully study any false teacher, you discover there are many subjects they refuse to teach because it would condemn them from the Romans 2 judgment, as James 3:1 warns.
Mark preached from Isaiah 6:1-7, but v.8 is the best part for a real pastor: Who will go for God and preach against sin? Who will call sinners to repent and live for God? Mark missed the point because he is not even a Christian. Instead, Mark gave a fanciful version of the glory of God. Mark slightly covered the seraphim proclaiming “Holy, holy, holy is Lord of the hosts of angels; the whole earth is full of His glory.” But Mark should have focused on God’s holiness that Isaiah was describing. Isaiah found a holy and purifying fear of sinning against God. Holy fear motivates humans to obey God and leave favorite sins; that is what is called spiritual growth. Because of God’s holiness the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of the angel who cried out, “and the temple was filled with smoke.” When Isaiah became so aware of God’s holiness and that is why God must judge against sin, then Isaiah confessed his sinfulness, he repented saying “Woe is me, for I am undone.! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips…” That is a true repentance with a contrite heart. Isaiah saw the holiness of God, and he honestly repented. Mark ignored the core message of this Passage. Isaiah admitted that his mouth said things that he should never say and his temple friends were the same way. Mark is not anything like a man of God. Mark also tried to make God sound dangerous or incredibly obsessive; because Mark is a seven-mountain-satanist. And this report proves it for you to see….”
