Who Is Qualified
Who is qualified?
Yah determines who is qualified; man has only to agree with the Most High or find themselves against Him.
In the Inn of the Sixth Happiness Ingrid Bergman’s character is continually told she is not qualified to do what Yah has called her to do, namely to go serve in China. She goes in faith to God despite the words of man, and God uses her to do a mighty work.
Man looks to man’s things, man’s frailties and perceived short-comings, man-made-church membership, academic degrees, the adherence to man’s doctrines; but Yah’s ways and thoughts are higher than man’s. Isaiah 55:9.
Moses, who put you in charge?, the rebellious Israelites asked before their defiance of Yah’s chosen leadership/spokesman eventually led to their demise. Numbers 16.
Moses himself questioned his own appointment to leadership, making excuses and revealing how he felt unqualified to speak, but Yah shut down these arguments; “And Yahuah said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? … have not I Yahuah? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what to say.” Exodus 4:11-12.
The prophet Jeremiah also resisted his appointment and was told by Yah not to look at his youth, but to the One calling him to go forward. “But Yahuah said to me, Say not, I am a child: for you shall go to all that I shall send you, and whatsoever I command you, you shall speak.” Jeremiah 1:7.
Later the apostle Paul would say nearly the same thing to Timothy. 1 Timothy4:12.
The moral of the story is that Yah qualifies and equips the man.
“For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Matthew 7:29.
“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” John 7:24.
