How To Preach And Teach Holiness: 4. Preach It Boldly And Fearlessly Without Compromise

By Arthur Vess

      Preach it boldly and fearlessly, without compromise or adulteration. Condemn everything unholy, and defend everything that is holy. Do not fear being charged as radical, fanatical, etc. "Perfect love casteth out fear." Let holy boldness be your motto and defense. Carnal boldness sacrifices God and others for self, but holy boldness sacrifices self for God and others. Cowards in the pulpits produce hypocrites in the pew.

      "And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together, and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and spake the word of God with boldness." "And when they saw their boldness, they took knowledge." If you want your hearers to respect you, let them know that you love them, but are not afraid of them. It is God's word, and not your own, that you are to preach. "I charge thee, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead."

      Preach the Word, be instant (constant) in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke and exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come (has come) when they will not endure (or tolerate) sound (holy) doctrine, but after their own lusts will heap to themselves teachers with "itching EARS" (for flattery and praise). And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, (holiness) and shall give heed unto fables," untruth, falsehoods, pious fraud, pretense, flattery, counterfeit, evasions, deception, etc. Only crooks do not like straight preaching. "But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of the ministry. For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand. Preach every message as though it were your last one. "Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you -- men -- more than unto God judge ye, for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
