Vacuum? Truth Or Lie!

When the truth of God is suppressed, wickedness abounds. Even though the truth of the Lord can be seen in creation, for it speaks of the awesome power, beauty and majesty of the creator, and though it is obvious, many do not still acknowledge this.

We ought to be in awe and give thanks, but instead of giving thanks for such awesomeness of the creator, majority refuse to acknowledge him. We thought we were wise and could reinvent the wheel, change things up to suit our darkened mind, but instead we lost it. Creation lost its stand!

There is no vacuum in the human soul. Either Christ is in it, or the devil is resident.

The result is what we see individually and collectively. Romans 1:21 speaks volume if you and I care to see things for what it is. Here is the cause of the depravity we see and hear about!

Romans 1: 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Father Lord, help us to take heed, examine our ways and repent of all evil. Help up to repent of our evil ways Father. Restore us. And for those taken over by darkened heart, Lord let your light shine in. For all those taken over by sexual impurity, Lord let there be deliverance.

We must therefore endeavour to preach love, in and out of season – Love of the Father for the soul of every being. He created us in His image. Only His love can transform our heart!

I know that many are not comfortable addressing this like I, however Father, you know it ought to be addressed. We are all your creation. Let your light shine upon the dark places in all our hearts. Dislodge the lies of the devil in the heart of your people oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen

Only the Truth, the love of the Father in the heart of sinful man can effect a lasting change. May that love find a place in each of our heart I pray in Jesus name.

Amen

Proclaiming Good News

“When people realize it is the living God you are presenting and not some idol that makes them feel good, they are going to turn on you, even people in your own family.

There is a great irony here: proclaiming so much love, experiencing so much hate! But don’t quit.

Don’t cave in. It is all well worth it in the end. It is not success you are after in such times but survival.

Be survivors! Before you’ve run out of options, the Son of Man will have arrived.

We Are Watchmen!

In the Open Heavens Devotional of this morning by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. It is about Christians being God’s Watchmen.

watchman

Watchmen are those that have been charged to keep watch and warn others of impending danger – Read Ezekiel 33: 1-6. They are those that the eyes of their understanding has been enlightened and specifically instructed for this task.

Ezekiel 33: “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.

Proverbs 8 34

As a Christian, born again and spirit filled you have been charged to go into all the world and preach the gospel, warning people of eternal death if they do not receive the unconditional love of Jesus Christ, the truth, the way, and life, who says, no one can come to the Father except through Him -John 14:6, and no one that comes to Him will He cast away – John 6:37.

To be effective in this charge then, ” we need to avoid falling into the sin of covetousness, pride, self-centeredness, love of money, and ambition for power” Open Heavens Devotional. These vices is what has enabled the world to creep into The Church, where materialism is glorified, holiness without which no one can see the Lord is at best superficial, men and women have become lovers of self, vain, and lukewarm.

The Lord is saying to us all, ” return to the great commission”. Let the undiluted word of God be preached to all, in your sphere of influence speak the truth of the word, glorify Christ in your word, body, and in all your ways! Do not let the fire of the Holy Ghost be quenched.

We must work the works of Christ, not our own agenda, Christ Kingdom, the people He died for must be warned! There is damnation awaiting the wicked, everyone working unrighteousness, hiding under the umbrella of Christianity to commit evil will be damned. We all must repent, so that the fire of the Holy Spirit can have full expression in us, and convict sinners of their sin. 

Lord we need fresh fire, fresh oil on our heads, rekindle the fire on the altar of our heart as at first when you met us and cleaned us up. We desire to do your will Lord Jesus, help us today we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
