Should a pastor that spends most of his time preaching and teaching get paid for what God has him to do? I know what the scriptures says about this, but would you pastor for free?

I agree sister ,that is a good word.Alot of Saints do want everything for Free except- when Its them doing the work or the sellin ,preaching etc...LOL Then,the price is double,right? And you are correct,our aptitude of attitude dictates our altitude,and many still wonder why they are walking on the ground? hmmmm
You are right when you say..God cant and wont Bless that Mess..
We are not of this world,but we ARE STILL in this world yall!
I do now. I started/founded the ministry nboc in 2003 and i dont recieve a weekly salary. I believe we are called to feed the sheep and not feed off the sheep! just my opinion.

This is the true Preacher

1Timothy 3:1-8 This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

Ecclesiastes 12:8-14 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Isaiah 8:16-20 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Matthew 23:1-12 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

This is a true Preacher

act28:30And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
31Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Shalom Paul was being 'Kept' if you will recall historical evidence. as well the basics of a Rabbi is to accept all who come to him for guidence.the Kingdom of G-d is the very essence within everyone that is being referenced a very base teaching in the Hebrew yeshiva's [ there was more than three hundred and eighty Yeshiva's or houses of learning in Yerushalayim at the time if memory serves me well ] Christ means manifestation or the manifestation of Good among the people...No pass the bucket stuff.
Hey brother if the words we use today, (such as wife, Jesus, God and Israel), make such a difference, how is it that Yerushalayim//// is now Jerusalem on all maps and has been for thousands of years. Is the whole world wrong? Has the wool been pulled over everyone's head except for the true Hebrews such as yourself?
No. The Lord said with stammering and another tongue will he speak to his people. It is in all languages. Jesus is just a good as Yeshua.
Mr. israel writes"Jesus is just a good as Yeshua."
Well,...considering the Mystic side of your Rabbi's teaching indicates that there is power in the use of the Hebrew language when it pertains to invoking healing etc. If someone calls you Kaleb and your name is John when would you correct them???? Considering that Kaleb means dog, I' would want them to know me as in James or Yaakov..So in reverence to your Rabbi Yeshua from all Historical documents or for those not lettered as Hasidic or rabbinic Torah teachers J-sus is well for you. As Paul/ Shual stated to those with little ability to go into the Yeshiva ( academy) or house of study,... He said simply "If you know Elohim then you do well" That is a powerful Salvation theology Now isnt it?
If you know G-d deep within,... If you know G-d,... you do well.

Personally,I perceive he liked the name given to him ~ at his Bris cerimoney~Mar Yeshua ben Yoseph" instead of the misconstruct given from Rome 100s of years later~~'the son of Zeus' as their teaching references.

As always. I could be wrong..we will leave it up to HaShem to sort out, I think however, we need to be of one mind soon.
Old habits of Reverence, Never die, young man...enjoy your journey
I believe that the Lord blesses his Pastors who earn a living and Pastor!.From my own witness,most pastors I have known that Pastor,alot of them dont even have enough members to be in a FULL time pastoring position.Paul worked and preached,Jesus was a carpenter as well,and the bible doesnt not make it clear that while he preached he never used those skills again for work of any kind in his travels.I believe that Any minister of God,not just pastors who pour themselves out to bless the people of God ought to be given something - in finances and prayer.I dont think anybody goes to a steak house eats a fine dinner..doesnt pay & leave a generous tip for a person who simple brought your meal and a drink! I do find this offensive in my spirit,that saints can come to the table of the their fill of your anointing,get their breakthtoughs,get their word of the Lord, and then insult you by saying in their giving that your Not worth but a dollar or two!I am equally as offended that Pastors or Ministers would use "WitchCraft" in the Pulpit to manipulate the People of God for money and self Gain!! We all who are in Christ should be learned enough, that we know what to do and when to do it by His Spirit..God will hold us ALL in account for the way we give,and the way we abuse Spiritual power of priveldge!! so I say to you all,it is very simple..."Just Do the RIGHT THING! PERIOD."
He as given us the ability to make wealth, and He promised to supply all our needs.
The blessing of the Lord will always be upon us. The shepherd should feed the flock the Lord will bring increase and blessings. We are not in the Minsitry for the money but for the souls, as you are faithfully working at your duty post , He will meet you. He will never leave you empty, He will make a way for you at the time you needed it the most. He will never leave nor forsake you. Lets depend on Him for all things.
