ARE YOU GENUINELY BORN AGAIN IN CHRIST?
YOU’RE EXEMPTED FROM RELIGIOUS RITUALS
Jesus says, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. John 15:1-4.
What Did You Mean By Rituals?
Is a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order. Most of the things that they’re practicing in many Churches of today have not bred righteousness of Christ, except, religiosity and hypocrisy. Practicing one ritual from the old covenant and leave the other is called selective scriptural usage and it is known as a sin. Christians must be careful about the type of template they subscribe to for living in Christ’s kingdom.
BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT INTERPRETATION AND NOT A RESPECTED MAN OF GOD MATHEMATICAL ERRORS AND SHENANIGANS
The words coming from Yongi Cho, Oral Robert, John Hagee, TD Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdoch, Adeboye, TB Joshua, Oyedepo, Abiara, Joel Os-teen, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Fredrick Price, Umah Upai, Kumuyi, Adebayo, or names it; might be enjoyable, encouraging and motivating, but they might not be the truth of Christ, watch out for religious errors.
At any point in time of Jesus Christ’s ministry, Jesus Christ does not ask any of His disciples to go to any respected men of God for instruction or reminder. Don’t get me wrong; I did not say that all these people are not of God, though many of them are not, but taking advantage of Jesus’s name for their businesses. But, what I am saying here is that Christians should allow the Holy Spirit to be verifying for them the truth of Christ before they start to follow any men or women of God’s instructions blindly.
It is very easy for someone that was called out of religious tradition to delve back into it without knowing. No matter what you feel, all believers in Jesus Christ are called out from one kind of religion, tradition, or other ways. I am not here to condemn Apostle Paul. However, if you’re someone that is reading with the Holy Spirit interpretation and not scared of religious guru tagging you as a devil for exercising the discerning spirit that God has given unto you, you will find out that if you have an opportunity to meet Apostle Paul he will either tell you that they misinterpreted him about what he said or that he never say such thing at all. It may happen to anyone; we have to make amends when the Holy Spirit pointed out to us that something is old, obsolete, and updated. Sometimes these things happen because of people’s pressure; because we don’t want to change the past rules or maybe by omission.
Example: From what I read in the scripture, Jesus was here to save everyone, but the disciples told Jesus to send a particular woman that was in need away because of where she came from, and Jesus almost surrender to their religious minds. However, when Jesus saw the tenacity and brokenness of that woman in His assignment, Jesus later commended the woman for her great faith.
You might interpret that commendation to whatever you like, but my point is that Jesus made the woman happy at last despite religious laws. Why can’t believers in Christ imitate Jesus Christ in all our ways, instead of going back and forth to the respected religious guru’s instructions as it pleases us? There is nothing called World General Overseer in Christ’s way it is a fallacy. Most of these actions are bred out of manipulating spirits.
ARE YOU PRACTISING THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTION IN ANY OF YOUR CHURCHES TOO?
“If a spirit of jealousy comes over him, and he is jealous of his wife when she has defiled herself, or if a spirit of jealousy comes over him, and he is jealous of his wife when she has not defiled herself, the man shall then bring his wife to the priest, and shall bring as an offering for her one-tenth of an ephah of barley meal; he shall not pour oil on it nor put frankincense on it, for it is a grain offering of jealousy, a grain offering of memorial, a reminder of iniquity. (then the priest shall have the woman swear with the oath of the curse, and the priest shall say to the woman), “the Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people by the Lord ‘ s making your thigh waste away, and your abdomen swell, and this water that brings a curse shall go into your stomach, and make your abdomen swell and your thigh waste away.” And the woman shall say, “Amen. Amen.” ‘The priest shall then write these curses on a scroll, and he shall wash them off into the water of bitterness. Then he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that brings a curse so that the water which brings a curse will go into her and cause bitterness. The priest shall take the grain offering of jealousy from the woman’s hand, and he shall wave the grain offering before the Lord and bring it to the altar. Numbers 5:14-15, 21-25
ARE YOU TRULY BORN AGAIN? THEN ALL THESE RITUALS ARE NOT NECESSARY BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT ONE OF THE PHARISEES
Matthew 23:23: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
