The word of God teaches us that “God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19. I am amazed at the manner with which we have and are presenting God to the world as if He was a man.
Humanity is different from Divinity. God is sovereign and His counsel stand Supreme over the counsel of man. As an African by birth, our tradition taught us about that power of divinity, no true African can deny the fact that spirits are real. their world is real and their assignments are real. John 10:10. Some of us were delivered from their hands through the death and resurrection power of Jesus Christ to good works which God ordained before the foundation of the world and so coming out of that background, we know that spirit realm is real. I have also come to know that this is true of other culture in the continent of the world but I will build my case on my African root.
Now in Christ we know their testimony is not true but back then, before we believed and accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord of our lives, the words of these spirits and their priests were taken serious and never questioned. Also now that we are in Christ, we should not forget that God is the God of all spirits and all flesh, His word is held Supreme over all the words of all spirits. Numbers 27:16
We read in the Book of 2 Chronicles 18:18-22, the account of Micaiah before Ahab king of Israel., “I saw in Heaven the Lord sitting on His throne and all the Host of Heaven standing on His right hand and His left. And the Lord said, “Who will persuade Ahab the king of Israel to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead? So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will persuade him’ The Lord said to him, in what way? So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the Lord said, you shall persuade him and also prevail, go out and do so. Therefore look, the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of these prophets of yours and the Lord has declared disaster against you.’
Ladies and Gentlemen, I come to inform you through this message that God is not a man that he should lie. If He says peace there is peace, but right now what is the point of saying peace when there is no peace and we have deceived many “in the name of the Lord” saying “the Lord told me to tell you that you are to go in peace, you shall prosper and all our messages have centred on physical blessings when you yourself know that your work right now will definitely not give birth to peace!
I am of the opinion that many of us are under the influence of lying spirits from Heaven. As it was in the day of Ahab, so it is today. Ahab was a weak king who submitted himself to the wicked counsel of his wife Jezebel and as a result of this, God pronounced His judgement on his entire household including his wife Jezebel. As God is not a man, what He said came to pass. Let us look into our lives and let’s ask ourselves of what made us to believe that we will live a covetous “Jones” lifestyle and not pay the price of such lifestyle if we refuse to repent? is it because we know how to pray, fast and associate ourselves with certain men and women of God? is it because we tithe and give so call offerings to our churches or because we run charity work to cover our wickedness?
Who has bewitched us like Paul said to the Galatians! To think that we can be as canal as we can be, and expect the Spirit of Christ to empower us is unbelievable. Ok I get it, we are empowered alright especially us who are supposed to be custodian of the Truth but not by the Holy Spirit but by lying spirit to cause many to stumble from faith!
Beloved God is never moved by polluted offerings from heart that is corrupt and wicked. Please read what the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 50:7-15.
We have become a generation that refuse listen to the word of God especially because we live in a civilised society. We have become so civilised that we made ourselves to become pals with God of Heaven.
In the African religions no one dare made the gods their pals. The words of the gods through their priests are final authorities.
Our daughters are marrying pagans just to be seen to marry, even some are marrying heathen for right to live in UK, afterwards they dump them and we smile all the way to the altar. Our sons are on the altar of Jezebel and with women who are turning their hearts away from the living God and no one is saying anything. Have we forgotten the story of Solomon so soon?
All that we do now is partying every Saturday and go to church on Sunday to fulfil our religious duty. Oh I forget, Friday night of prayer, Saturday party (for some after choir practice) Sunday Service and we drop the dollar from last night party in the basket (in a country where Sterling is the currency) and we Pastors smile that we have heard a great service today! Is there no one who will cry out to God for TRUE AND FRESH FIRE TO START FROM SUCH PULPIT OF BAAL?
Remember, God is not a man.
I want you to consider for a minute what He allowed His Son to go through on the Cross in order for my sins and yours to be judged.
What do you think will happen to those who continue to walk in an ungodly manner without repentance?
A man was given opportunity to repent but he said he was not ready. He said he will do so when he is ready. Unfortunately he was never ready till he met his “Waterloo”.
Time is running out beloved. Remember God is not a man. Purpose in your heart to change before change is enforced on you.
