Word for Today: There is no darkness in Christ Jesus.
Ministry Of the Word(MOW) : True Spirituality (TS).
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all ” (1John 1:5).
Joyful weekend to the great people of God out there. Please, imitate Christ, not man.
The true message is that God is light. There is no trace of darkness in God at all . There is no darkness in God of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I often wonder why there are so much dishonesty, pretences, deceits, hypocrisies , seductions, manipulations and exploitations in the church. I often wonder why many preachers do not often quote: “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8), yet this scripture was given by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself . I often wonder why many preachers are very good at quoting Malachi 3:10, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”. I often wonder why Jesus Christ Himself, never quoted this Malachi once through out His earthly ministry. Yet, the book of Malachi was already in existence when Jesus was on earth . I often wonder why preachers don’t often quote:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone” ( Matthew 23:23).
Why is it that many Christians do NOT obey some scriptures spoken by Jesus Christ Himself through the Holy Spirit? Such as:
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” (Matthew 23:9).
Yet these scriptures were given by Jesus Himself. Please, ponder on them.
The church is meant to be an embodiment of light. The church is meant to be the epitome of purity and holiness. The church is meant to be the custodian of divine nature. There should be no trace of darkness in the church. Whether you believe me or not, I can say categorically that there is much darkness in the church today . Please, if any reader of this message has revelations or understanding as to why the word of God is being ‘sold’ by men and women of God, under different guises, let him or she educate me. We receive the word of God freely. Why are we not giving the word of God freely to people? Jesus Christ our mentor, never preached the word of God for money or ‘sold’ the word of God once while on earth.
True, if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into a pit ( Luke 6:39).
Ignorance is darkness; yet there is so much ignorance in the church. Fear, doubt, unbelief, sickness, poverty, frustration, stagnation, bondage, failure etc , are products of darkness. No wonder, these challenges are common in the church .
Only the truth can make you free indeed:
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).
Stay connected with Jesus, the Word. Seek knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Stand by the truth. Only the truth can make you free ( John 8:32).
Be followers of Christ, NOT followers of men.
Connect, Change and Live (CCL)
Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that they may enjoy light in your word and be able to separate light from darkness in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Dear Father, we pray that you continue to frustrate, expose and flush out evil doers and pretenders in our midst in Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you Jesus. Blood of Jesus!
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
