Bless you my brothers and sisters and greetings in the name of healing and joy.
Before I further comment I would like to recieve a comment from the men and women of God who feels this topic is of importance. Not asking for what you think but the question is, does the title "Bishop" have any spiritural significance? The Word of God teaches us to study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman needeth not to be ashamed rightly dividing the Word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15. The key words "approved unto God", I heard the Late Eliza LaMay say "if you got your way and I got my way we are all on our way to hell, because there is only one way and it is Jesus". So I look forward to our discussion on this topic.
sincerely I serve Christ,
Bishop, Laresa Thompson
Praise Him! As the scripture 2 Timothy 2:15 relates the description here is of the workman of God
that rightly divides the Word of God, it also gives and understanding of the character of such a
workman as it relates to duties for the Lord when you tie them both together. As I understand it :
the workman has the followiing:
- God's approval
- fearless faithfulness
- gives truth appropriately
- possesses the torch of Leadership
- provides skillful teaching
The office or title of Bishop as I understand it is a spiritual supervisor or overseeyer of churches.
A senior member of Christian clergy having both spiritual and administrative authority. Depending
on the denomination it is sometimes used interchangeably with Apostle, although they are not the
same in meaning.Bishops oversee number of churches or diocese. To the best of my knowledge
this is what a Bishop as a "spiritual signifigance". God Bless! Prophetess Teloria WIlliams ( IHS)
