The Mathematics Professor

I will never forget one day while working at a college library, a university professor approached the counter I was attending. Standing in front of him was a relatively small line of people, about four students. Abruptly, he belted out in a loud voice something like, “Excuse me, do not serve them, I am a professor and I need this material now.” I replied, ‘Sir I will address you after I attend to these here, as they are ahead of you in line.” He again said rather sternly, “I am a professor, I need this now!” Well, I confess, at that time I was an atheist and also quite frankly crude in speech, and I said, “Who the “h-expletive” cares? Wait in line like everyone else.” The professor became so irate, he dashed to the counter, and I kid you not, God knows, he began to pound his fist repeatedly on the counter like a child throwing a major temper tantrum. He screamed over and over “I am a mathematics professor, I am a mathematics professor’! I said “I don’t give a “d-expletive” who you are.” (Obviously, I didn’t behave too well either). The students in line began to protest “We were here first. Does this make you any better than anyone else here?” Then a very tall man approached from somewhere, and calmly said, “I will call security here if you do not leave, do you want me to do that?” The professor grunted and left, and we all looked at each other in amazement for what had just happened.

Thankfully God is no respecter of persons. This grand bit of truth is missing in the new apostolic prophetic circles, riddled with hierarchies and the utmost pride in the midst of its dizzying oligarchy.

1 John 2:18-27
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life,
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
