Message for the Preachers

Sermon By Bishop V Bush

The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Dallas TX

We greet you in the name of our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ. We invite everyone to come and check us out. Come and see how we do business. It has been required by the Lord, almighty God that we summon everybody here because we have a message for the entire human family. No matter where you reside on the planet Earth, if you are a member of the human family, you have been ordered by almighty God to come here and cooperate with The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith. It might sound strange to you, but that’s the way the Lord do business.  And so we are about the business of the Lord. No matter what walk of life you come from, remember you don’t get too busy to check in with The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith.  The church halts everybody because we have something for you that was delivered to us by the Lord to deliver to you. Don’t ignore your invitation because the Lord is holding you responsible to show up. You might be a preacher and have a large congregation and a prosperous organization, but you can’t put it together good enough for the Lord to excuse you.

You know, the young ruler was very rich and he went to Jesus Christ. The bible said he went running. “Good Master what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” Luke 18:18 Jesus Christ answered, “You’ve been reading…The ruler answered and said I have been doing that. Jesus Christ said, “Yet thou lackest one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute to the poor.." Upon that answer, the bible said he went away grieved.

Now I know there are a lot of famous preachers out there. Some are recognized by the news media. They will interview them and tell them how famous they are. But you’ve got to come here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith. Yes you do. I don’t’ care how big your organization is or how famous you are, you got to come here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know you love your association. I know you love your movement. You’ve put much money in it and you’ve done much sacrificing and built it. Some say “I built it from the ground.” But you better let heaven build this thing, and if heaven didn’t build it, your building is in vain.

Israel was a great nation, a big nation with multitudes down in Egypt. But they were in trouble. The people of the Lord were. But the Lord always have a man so that when you get in trouble he will send him to you. He will send you somebody to get you out of trouble. Israel got in trouble once, in the days of Eli the priest, and there was no open vision. The lamp went out and no one was getting any revelation from heaven. But Hannah saw the condition and she prayed to the Lord in the temple and asked the Lord “Give me a son and if you do I’ll give him to you all the days of his life.”  1 Samuel 1:11 The Lord heard Hannah’s prayer and blessed her with a son. She nursed and weaned him and took him up to the temple and gave him to Eli. The bible says when Samuel didn’t know the word the spirit came in there and called him, “Samuel.” 1 Samuel 3:4 He thought Eli was calling him, but it wasn’t Eli it was the Lord. And the Lord told Samuel what he was about to do. He was going to wipe Eli and his whole house out and when he started he was going to make a full end. 1 Samuel 3:11-14 Things were not right, you know. When you do not build on the word of the Lord, it all has to come down. If you did not start with The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, you have to come here and start. And if you started and left, you have got to come on back. Who? Everything.

Now when I send out a message to the preachers, to the preachers I say, you’ve been called here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. You may say “I have a large movement.” I know you do. You may say, “I am rich.”  I know that too. But the Lord said to get rid of all of it and come here and follow me. In Exodus 3:16 it states, “ Go, and gather the elders of Israel together..”

Now that was no isolated incident that the elders would need help because they would be in trouble. The people of the Lord would be in trouble, and the elders that were over the people would not be able to deliver them and the Lord would send them somebody whom they had rejected. Moses showed the capability to get men out of trouble and when he began to minister to the need, they thrust him away. But the Lord went and got him and told him “Come now, I’m going to send you to Egypt. I hear the cry of my people down there. I want you go and gather the elders together."

 Everybody, The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has a message for you. Sometimes I send invitations out to preachers and they will write back and say, “due to my tight schedule…” You’re not that busy. Your schedule is not that important. Some will say, “I will not be able to attend.” Well you’ve bucked the word of the Lord when you’ve done that. When I set up a meeting and say the Lord told me to tell the elders to come together, then you can’t say well I am not going to do that. So when I tell you the Lord wants all the preachers to come together and you say, “Well I am a Baptist preacher”, but you had better come here. You may say, “I am a Muslim”, but you had better come here. You may say, I am this or that, but you have got to come here. That is what the word said, didn’t it?

Some may ask, “Why are you calling all the preachers together Bush?”  Well, the Lord told me to do that. I met up with the Lord on the mountain, and you know, me and him talked. In 1955 I met up with the Lord, and he said go in to all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And so I have been sent to everybody. That is the reason you are hearing from me today.

  I have got a message for you. Don’t be stubborn now. I know you will reject me like they did Moses. They rejected Moses and they didn’t want him, but the Lord went and got him and said “Go and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, the LORD god of your fathers, the god of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob appeared unto me…” The Lord knew he would send somebody else along and Moses wasn’t the last man the Lord was going to say that to.  He knew he would say it to me and when I come along and tell you let us come together, and you say “well I certainly don’t believe that”, then I’ll lay scripture on you to straighten you out. You may say, ”Don’t you know I am a famous bishop?” Pharaoh was famous too, but the Lord sent Moses to him. The Lord said he was going to be stout hearted and stiff-necked and rebellious, but the Lord said he would wipe him out. And when Moses got done, they said “let us alone and let us serve the Egyptians.” But Moses would not let them alone. And I can’t let you alone. I am after you now. Thank God in 1975, He appeared unto me in my house. I was looking at all the trouble the people of God was in.  I was looking at all the trouble the religious world was in and I was praying and asking the Lord to do something about it.  I wasn’t able to sleep. I was up all night contemplating over the condition of the religious world and all of the division and confusion. And the Lord spoke to me in my house and said 1 Chronicles 22:1-12 ”Now my son, the Lord be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee. Only the Lord give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the Lord thy God.” The Lord is my witness and He knows he said it. Yes he did. And so I have got to let the world know I’ve been sent to you now. That’s the reason you are hearing from me today. That’s the reason why I’m giving out this order to let you know that the Lord told me to gather you together. Yes we have got to come together now.

Let’s get it right. Let’s get God’s law right. Let’s get His gospel right and teach the people the right thing. Hear O Israel the Lord our God is one Lord. That’s what he want me to tell you. There is one body, one faith and one baptism. That’s what God want me to tell you. Someone might say, “Didn’t you hear Bishop Bush calling all the elders?, and so why are you having  service this morning? Why aren’t you on your way to Texas to Bishop Bush? My car is ready. If your car is not ready then mine is ready. If you can’t drive that’s why I’m ready to drive. If you don’t have the plane ticket I have it. Or you can say, let’s put on a rally, we’ve got to get to Texas. If you can’t get there, call him and tell him to come here.” And brother I will be there if life last and time last. I’ll be there. I am not afraid of the highway. Sometimes they tell me how far things are. I drive you know, and I drive for hours. Sometimes they tell me you shouldn’t be doing that. But I got to do it. The bible told me to go in to all the world and he told me to get the elders together. I have got bible here on that. Some may not believe it, but it is in the scripture. "I have surely visited you, and have seen that which is done to you in Egypt.." Exodus 3:16. I have seen the trouble you are in, and all the kinds of confusion, trouble and desolation that is among the religious world. The Lord Jesus said “I’ve seen it and I am going to send somebody capable of taking care of the situation. Jesus Christ said Love one another, and I’ve got to come here with the message. He said “To communicate forget not.”  Hebrews 13:16 You have some preachers that will not speak to one another. Some would say, “Well Elder would like to come,” and he would say,  “Well he can’t come in my church.” Well I have a message that will break up all of that. I will bring you here to the word of the Lord, and the word said “Gather the elders together …. “ Now, you say you are a preacher and you have division. You say you are a preacher and you are fighting. You say you are a preacher and you don’t believe. Well if you obey me and come together, I will get rid of all of that. I’ll bring you up out of all of that confusion in running around carrying the bible calling yourself a preacher and then say “can’t anyone understand all the scriptures.” If you would obey me and come together, I will straighten all of that out  and let you know I have a perfect understanding from the very first of all things. Then you’ll get straight on that, and go back and tell everybody, “Come on here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is able to tell you about everything. Just like the woman that ran up on Jesus Christ at Jacob’s well and when Jesus Christ was finished ministering to her, she went back and told them “Come, see a man, which told me all things that I ever did: is not this the Christ?John 4:29 Then you would come together and say come on here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and he can tell you everything. As the scriptures states “the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Issac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me saying, I have surely visited you and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:.." I know if you would obey that, then you would get rid of all of the religious division, and you will get rid of all of the arguments and disputes. You will get rid of it all if you obey this thing. The scripture says “ I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt.." The religious world is afflicted. It has all kinds of problems of all magnitude, but if you would obey this gospel that I am preaching, you will get delivered. ".. and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.  A land that is flourishing, fill with all the good things of God. Exodus 3:8 When you get in God’s church, then you ought to be getting all of the good things. Jesus Christ said, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you."  John 14:1-3. So the best thing is to come on here and line up with this gospel and you will be delivered from everything. Repent, get baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, get filled with the Holy Ghost and line up with everything that’s coming through The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do this, then you will get a blessing from the Lord. So that’s what you’ve got to do now. Come on now. You might be a big preacher, but you have got to humble yourself. Come on out of that organization you’re in. Shut that movement down and come on here to The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and line up and then you will be blessed of the Lord.
