About the Book

The people’s opinion of Christ Jesus in the now, that is after the flesh; Christ in the future, which is after the spirit; Jesus in the now, after the flesh. “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in Heaven” (Matthew 16:13–17 KJV). “Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ” (Matthew 16:20 KJV).

About the Author

Bishop Rupert George Lothian was born in 1953 in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. He was called by God through the inspiration of his father and pastor and had his second birth (according to Acts 2:38) in August 1962. At the tender age of nine, he preached his first message in a place called Spicy Hill, in the parish of Trelawney. After migrating to Canada, he met his wife and got married on November 29, 1975. He lived there for thirty-five years with his wife, Hyacinth, and four children: Novelette, Amanda, Elysia, and O’Conner. Elder Lothian served as superintendent of the Sunday school ministry at Bethel Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, for over twenty-five years. This is Bishop Lothian’s first book. While he does not consider himself to be an author, he is not a novice to the Word, having preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over thirty-nine years now. During these years of service to the Lord, he has witnessed aspects of the ministry that weigh heavily on his heart and mind. He struggles with what he calls ministerial misfits—men and women who are trying to be pastors but were never called to be such in the ministry. Therefore, they are living out of the will of God in a leadership role. As a Christian worker under the steady leadership of a pastor, these men and women serving as second-in-command would make a tremendous impact. They could live fruitful lives helping other as mates but not in a leadership position. However, as captains of the ship or pastors, they sometimes create havoc in the ministry.
