Who Is An Unbeliever?
Many Christ-followers have erroneously thought wrongly that unbelievers are the ones that don’t go to Church every service day, not wearing long skirts, pay tithes or first fruit, take part in many other religious activities, or the ones that are not going around the neighborhood with big hats.
Contrary to the above assumption, those that thought that’s where their blessings were, paying for what Jesus Christ has given freely or thinking that is what will give them eternal life are the real unbelievers.
Many men and women of God repeatedly say that if someone is not a good tither or not giving first fruit as at when due, they’re not going to heaven, some even have an opinion that if you’re not attending weekly, monthly, or yearly holy ghost conferences or congress you’re not a believer. That is not true; It is a religious fallacy!
BIBLICALLY, WHO IS AN UNBELIEVER?
This is what Jesus says about that, “Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:7-10. In a simpler way, anyone that enters through Jesus Christ is a believer, while an unbeliever in this term will be the opposite.
HOW CAN SOMEONE LOCATE THAT GATE?
The Apostle Paul that has been on the other side of the aisle before, attests to God’s word, “This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Hebrews 8:10.
The Above Scripture Is called Ratification; Have You Ever Heard About That Before
That was why Jesus Christ says that he must go, then he will send the comforter… Don’t you think that someone that asked any follower of Christ not to come into her father’s house because she’s menstruating is a thieve? Did you know that any men of god, general overseers, or bishops that are collecting “areas of tithes, a seed of faith, or sacrificial offerings from sick persons before praying for them to be healed of cancer or any other illness, while the general overseer s and bishops have multiple doctors abroad are thieves and unbeliever?
The word unbeliever was understood to represent everything that opposes Christian faith and godliness.
1. A believer in Christ supposes to be someone that used to steal and decided to steal no more.
2. A believer in Christ should be someone that was lying before and decided not to lie anymore.
3. A believer in Christ should be someone that refuses to connive with thieves or fraudsters to be living large at the expense of his or her neighbor, community, or nation.
4. A believer in Christ must be someone that has made a decision to always yield to the Holy Spirit leading, regardless of the consequences ahead for him or her.
5. A believer in Christ must make a decision not to be taking advantage of anyone, in other to favor himself or herself.
6. A genuine believer in Christ must be someone that will constantly preach the truth of the kingdom of God.
7. A believer in Christ must be someone that will not tell you to do what he or she cannot do.
8. A believer in Christ must be someone that is ready to lose all he or she has to gain all that God has in stock for him or her.
How can you call someone an unbeliever, yet you and your entire family are living on his or her welfare package and you’re not concerned about the person’s soul?
Because many people want to be playing it safe by not blocking their freebies avenue from unbelievers that they are using to feed their entire family and even paying tithe and Sowing their Isaac as seed to their various gods, while they suddenly shun their eyes unto each of their evil doings.
The irony of it is that the so-called believers can’t even help their church members, except if a daddy g.o or bishops say so, not to talk of unbelievers that we counted not to be among the household of faith. How many people have the privilege to see these gods that you’re calling bishops and g.o?
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. – Professor Bernardo.
TO BECOME A BELIEVER IN CHRIST IT IS A MUST THAT YOU BREAK MANY ERRONEOUS RULES AND RELIGIOUS MYTHS TEACHINGS
Even the Apostle Peter looked down on what he considered as not clean in other words an (unbeliever) before God instructed him to break away from the status quo and he reluctantly obeyed.
REMEMBER, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A CONSEQUENCE FOR EACH OF YOUR ACTIONS ARE YOU READY?
“The apostles and the believers throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God. 2 So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him 3 and said, “You went into the house of uncircumcised men and ate with them.” 4 Starting from the beginning, Peter told them the whole story: 5 “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. I saw something like a large sheet being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came down to where I was. 6 I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles and birds. 7 Then I heard a voice telling me, ‘Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.’ 8 “I replied, ‘Surely not, Lord! Nothing impure or unclean has ever entered my mouth 9. “The voice spoke from heaven a second time, ‘Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.’ 10 This happened three times, and then it was all pulled up to heaven again… 11 “Right then three men who had been sent to me from Caesarea stopped at the house where I was staying. 12 The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. 13 He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, ‘Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. 14 He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.’ 15 “As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. 16 Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ 17 So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?” 18 When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.” Acts 11
Caveat! Believers in Christ must proceed on their mission or assignment to the unbelievers with caution, armed with the truth of Jesus Christ, which means the Holy Spirit’s instruction for direction, not using your stay in their means as an opportunity to be sharing from their loots and largesse.
ASK GOD FOR DIVINE DIRECTION TO KNOW WHEN TO GO OR NOT, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
