“And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds, then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgement” 2 Peter 2:6-9.
I know for some of you, the messages you read on my website and blog are probably what you never expected to read. For some, it is the medicine needed for your soul and spirit.
Beloved, the fact that you are on this page now simply tells me that God is speaking to you and I will advice you not to switch off (which we often do in our mind when we are not comfortable with the message) or worse to close the file.
You see, you and I must go back to basic!
We have been in the Church too long we forget it is not about Church but KINGDOM.
The Church without Kingdom agenda offers us religion and cover up. But when your mindset is geared into fulfilling Kingdom agenda, your walk with the Lord takes a different meaning.
Church that offered us religion also gave us form of godliness without power. The result is imitation, deception and fake. We cover up and we are not even good at it.
Our best cover up is seen as far as eyes could see by all except those who by choice deny the truth!
We justify ourselves by saying that love covers multitude of sins BUT we fail to read IT DOES NOT COVER ALL SINS.
Multitude is not all even according to GOOD OLD ENGLISH WORD.
So as Chosen generation, what are we to do?
Choose to live according to Kingdom principles.
The Kingdom of God is never about eating and drinking (this we will and must do) but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost according to Romans 14:17. If you and I realised this without any preacher manipulating us to think otherwise for their own selfish gain (which again is another gospel – Galatia 1:6-10) we will not be in the mess we all are in today but never mind, Jesus already told us in the parable of the Wheat and the Tares Mathew 13:24-30 the day of Harvest will show the difference.
This message is to help you see life as a believer differently so that when you stand before Him who redeemed you, you will not be ashamed.
Firstly, where ever you are now, is a matter of choice.
You are either a victim of someone’s choice or you made the choice yourself.
If someone made the choice of where to be for you, and you are not living a fulfilled life as a matter of the choice made on your behalf, take your life to Jesus Christ yourself and let Him tell you what to do.
Never allow someone unproductive in their walk with Jesus Christ and ungodly in lifestyle determine where to worship Jesus Christ and how far your life can be as a follower of Him.
You must enjoy the peace of God and His Joy always. These are your rights as redeemed of the Lord after all, why would He die for you and you would still be miserable?
We never know how to please God and live according to His standard hence Christ came to show us and through His Spirit in us enables us daily to live to please God. If all these are not your priorities, I plead with you to make radical changes starting from today.
It is about time you take your spiritual life serious.
He took dying for you and I seriously and did not compromise even when opportunity was given to Him by Pontius Pilate.
There are decisions you cannot make which; has to be made for you depending on your age.
If you are minor under parental guidance, decisions are made for you on major issues which affect every area of your life. What you can do is to pray to God for wisdom and obedient heart towards God’s word for your parents, custodian or guardian.
As member of a church, the decision to advance the cause of Christ is committed to His Shepherd and the leaders of that assembly.
If the cause of Christ Kingdom is not pursued in your church, you can take yourself to Christ and settle your destiny before Him. Remember 2 Corinthian 5:10!
PRAYER: When you pray for your leaders, their hearts can turn to do the things that please God and in turn bring peace and joy to all under their care.
I know you will probably say to me that how many times do we have to pray for these leaders? And I will tell you that as many times as you can pray for us.
Moses did not stop to pray for the leaders of the household of Israel including the people even when God Himself wanted to destroy them and raised a new generation through Moses! Left for some of us we would have been glad for such record. Samuel said God forbid he should not pray for Saul.
To pray is a command but what we pray for is another matter.
Why not allow the Holy Spirit to pray through you for your leader. You will be amazed what He will come up with!
After all is done and your leader still bend on self destruction (after all Judas had the Master Himself and still ended up the way he did) use your legs.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE NO ONE ELSE! BE DETERMINED TO MAKE HEAVEN, YOUR PREPARED HOME.
DO NOT ALLOW OTHERS TO DECIDE OTHERWISE!
