Needed - Hard Headed Baptist Preachers
Ezekiel 3:4-11 And
he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak
with my words unto them. For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech
and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel; Not to many people
of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not
understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have
hearkened unto thee. But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for
they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and
hardhearted. Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy
forehead strong against their foreheads. As an adamant harder than flint have I
made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though
they be a rebellious house. Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words
that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and
speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear,
or whether they will forbear.
Please read v.7, GOD says they are hard hearted and then in v.8 they are Hard Headed. Now to be called hard headed is usually not a compliment. I can ask your wife and she will say your hard headed or ask you did your mama drop you on your head as a baby? What I am talking about is, Are you spiritually hard headed for CHRIST?
So I believe when GOD calls a Baptist Preacher to declare His word and stand for what's right he makes him Hard headed Amen! Amen! If you don't study the KJV you'll be empty headed.
Now here are a few things that I am Hard Headed about, and will not budge one inch.
I AM HARD HEADED WHEN IT COMES TO BELIEVING THAT
(1) Before there was a sinner, there was a savior 1st Peter 1:18-20
A. A lamb was slain - Revelation 13:8
(2) Before there was guilt there was Grace
(3) Before there was punishment of life there was a promise of life Titus 1:2
(4) Before there was a Hell there was a heaven Ephesians 1:4 / Matthew 25:34
Yes sir, put me down that I am hard headed on these thing’s
And plan on staying this way until He calls me home, things like The Book, The Blood, the Blessed hope, The business meetings, The Baptist (that does not stand), the Big shots, Bums in the ministry, bragging preachers and britches, boys with long hair and jewelry, bossy women, backbiters, backsliders, blaspheme, boredom (especially Sunday school ugh) bitterness, brawlers and last beggars (they will preach for JESUS and even pass out a tract or street preach or fly to Israel if my expenses are paid) Pastors your gonna give account for every dime you waste.
YES, GOD NEEDS SOME HARD HEADED BAPTISTS
