Fighting Corruption Without Allowing God To Deal With The Religious Leaders Is An Effort In Futility.
Woe to the Scribes and Pharisees
“Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. 4 For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. Matthew 23:1-4.
Many Christian were derailed because they’re looking for men’s approval, that is not where I want to go now.
What do we mean by born again?
To be born again simply means a decision with a strong determination to live a righteous life in Christ; It is not complicated, don’t complicate it for yourself either.
I got it wrong the first time I thought I was born again, Many people have got it wrong at one time or the other too when they said they’re born again.
In the year 2001 that I considered myself been born again from Islam to Christianity at Living Faith Ministries aka Winners chapel Sango Ota Nigeria. It doesn’t take much time for Christ to reveal to me that if you follow their ways, you’ve just joined a bus going into hellfire, I later realized that.
“Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
What I realized then was, what many of us were yearning for was not really the kingdom of God, but meat and bread including nice car, big houses, and connections, as we were thought by “confess them and grab them doctrines”.
Many of us are even carrying stickers of a bishop all-around wherever it can be pasted, showing of selves “I AM A WINNER” knowing that they’re fastly losing their inheritance and the most important part of the kingdom of God daily to the Bishops.
Often the unbelievers’ are confused if truly these people have not lost their mind. They called themselves Christians yet many of them are perfect on strategic stealing more than the ones people called thieves.
In the beginning what many Christians were searching for is meat, due to increasing suffering in the society, not necessarily the word of eternal life. And since meat only cannot change anyone’s life except to become more covetous, then the world is in danger of becoming more greediness By living abracadabra lifestyle of material things; This is why you see our societies today decaying more despite the fact that we have born-again Christians and Churches at every corner.
Is there any difference now and when Jesus was not yet lifted up? NO!
Jesus said, “you’re only following me because of what you will eat… It is the same thing now, except that it’s more worse than during the time of Jesus.
“When the people, therefore, saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?” Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.” John 6:24-27.
Are Christians Fulfilling The Assignment That Christ Has Given To Them? No! Many Christians are still stuck in Daddy G.O or Bishop’s confusion
Until now what many of us were doing or why we thought we are born again is because of meat or bread for our selves or family. Let’s take a look at the Redeemed Christians Church of God of today, they have more personal assistance general overseers than what the government of a nation has. Why? It’s all a gimmicks to compensate the ones that may want to get serious about eternal life and resign from helping in cajoling the ignorant people. However, since poverty has built houses all around the nation, many people’s lives are in danger, and that’s why many are falling for the bait called enticement.
The above and many other the reasons is why they have Personal assistants to the general Overseer on everything here on earth, except for the kingdom of God, and His righteousness.
You will see many of this personal assistants Overseer on their route to a foreign land, lobbying Pastors over their franchises there for a fraudulent favor and many other things, except for Christ mind and righteousness.
Highest level of deception
A few years ago Bishop David Oyedepo was preaching to everyone not to go to “Egypt”, yet an “Egyptian” American Bro Kenneth Copeland was the one that came to ordained his son as a pastor. Why? Maybe there was a shortage of Pastors in their country that have the anointing to ordain.
Moreover, his sons are there in “Egypt” (foreign land) living comfortably and defrauding the innocent ones there too, While he is constantly discouraging other people not to go to “Egypt” but to be sowing fraudulent seeds for divine lifting, while he and his political business partners are jointly looting the national resources.
The kingdom of God is not about meat.
You may be thinking that you’re serving Christ, but it may be that all your works, sacrifices and offerings are a wast. Many people may be wondering why I am interested in this country call Nigeria. Here is one of the reasons
Precisely 2006 under the ministration of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in Dallas Texas the Lord said to me that Pastor Adeboye has fully surrendered to the pressure of his advisers to delve into vanity lifestyle. Mercy!!! And since my assignment in the kingdom of God is to save souls, I don’t see any difference between souls of chronic liars and that of a Bishops or General Overseers.
You don’t need to cajole anyone to carry out your assignment
On my route to Nigeria in 2014 I sat adjacent to a man in the plane, I took advantage of the opportunity to listen to my father while many were asleep, however the man adjacent me was just murmuring something that I knew it was a repetition of prayer, but I cannot grab exactly what he was praying. When we alighted from the plane and took a shuttle to the car park then I understood what the man was murmuring right from when we were in the plane. What he was saying is Father break the chain.
Immediately we entered the bus, he doesn’t waste a minute to pass across his messages. He started with, “praise the Lord”! Then he offered very few but sharp prayers which include father “break the chain” that has bound the nation of Nigeria in the name of Jesus. And immediately after that, he said “you need to turn your life to Christ before He comes, he ended his sermon as follow; “I pray that we shall all meet in the kingdom of God in Jesus name”.
That man made his own impact, What about you? Though you may be abusing or cursing the ones that God has called to warn your spiritual fathers for doing their assignment, however, if the Lord Jesus comes he will testify that they did their part.
Jesus loves you
Brothers and Sisters, I beseech you to surrender your lives to Jesus Christ. Submit unto him totally; let the comforter He promised that He will send to you lead you always. If you believe in him, he will surely guide you. You will be surprised that a lot of pastors, prophets, bishops, overseers know nothing; except reeling out obsolete instructions.
Jesus says; “it is expedient for me to go… Then he says I will send the comforter; that will teach you all things, and remind you everything I have thought you… Take advantage of Him.
Call To Salvation
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, now is the time! Your degree, status, pedigree, wealth, associations will not protect you from the tricks of Satan which is produced in the plots and schemes of men.
Only Jesus Christ can save you, only His Blood can cover you. RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, I ask you today, “WOULD YOU LIKE TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR?”
Please say this short prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of JESUS CHRIST. I acknowledge to you that I am a sinner, I repent of ALL my sins and the life that I lived; I need your forgiveness. I believe that Your Son Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross at CALVARY and died for my sins.
Your word says in Romans 10:9 “that if we confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and believe in our heart that God raised Him from the dead, we shall be saved.
“Right now I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and with my heart, I believe that God raised Him from the dead.
This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, according to His word, I am now saved. Thank You, Jesus, for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
