THE IMPARTIAL GOD
Deut. 10:17. "For the Lord your God is God of gods, Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and terrible, which regards not persons, nor takes reward (bribes)."
Job 36:5. "Behold, God is mighty, and despises not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom."
Job 37:24. "Men do therefore fear him: he respects not any that are wise of heart (filled with human vanity)."
Acts 10:34. "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. 35. But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness (see Psa. 119:172), is accepted with him."
Rom.2:6. "Who will render to every man according to his deeds. 11. For there is no respect of persons with God."
Gal. 2:6. "But of these who seemed to be somewhat (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me:God accepts no man's person) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me."
(THIS WAS PAUL AT JERUSALEM AND WHOEVER WERE APOSTLES AND WHATEVER THEY WERE IN THE EYES OR MIND OF THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, PAUL, FRANKLY AS WE MIGHT PUT IT TODAY "COULD HAVE CARED LESS." THIS IS ONE MAIN VERSE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, THAT SHOWS AND PROVES THERE IS NO "RANK" OF MINISTRY - ALL ARE EQUAL IN GOD'S SIGHT. THERE ARE FUNCTIONS OF MINISTRY BUT THERE ARE NO "RANKS" - ONE IS NOT OVER ANOTHER IN CHURCH AUTHORITY, AS TAUGHT WRONGLY BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, AND OTHER SECTS AND CULTS OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY.

Eph. 6:8. "Knowing that whatsoever good things a man does, the same shall receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free."
Col. 3:25. "But he that does wrong shall receive for the wrong which he has done: and there is no respect of persons."
1 Pet. 1:17. "And if you call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear."
KNOWING GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS, WE NEED TO HAVE THE RIGHT FEAR TOWARDS HIM - A VERY RESPECTFUL FEAR, FOR WE CANNOT BRIBE GOD, TRY TO PLAY FAVORITES WITH HIM, AND HUMAN ORGANIZATION THAT HAVE PUT MEN IN RANKS OF MINISTRY, AND TAUGHT IT IS THE WAY OF GOD, ARE NOT ONLY IN TOTAL ERROR, BUT GOD WILL SOONER OR LATER DESTROY THEIR "FALSE RELIGIOUS EMPIRE" THEY HAVE BUILT FOR THEMSELVES. THEY MAY GET THE PRAISE OF MEN BUT CERTAINLY NOT THE PRAISE OF GOD!
