Blessing Or Habitation?

If there is one Scripture that has caused so many wonderful sons of God to stumble in our time it will be “therefore, come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord; do not touch any unclean thing and I will welcome you” (2Corinthians 6:17). So many find it hard to reconcile this Scripture with us loving our neighbor as children of God; they equate loving their neighbor to mean condoning and tolerating the evil perpetrated by their neighbor. Such are unable to walk in the Truth and are quick to betray the Lord once their well-being is threatened. These, water down the Scriptures by the way they live or masked who they are in Christ Jesus in order not to offend their ‘neighbor’. They feel because they are being blessed by the Lord, He approves of them. God's desire is not only to bless us but to inhabit us so we would look like Him. Sadly, the people desire blessing rather than God inhabiting them. No wonder the land is in dire need of a revival because evil has danc…

How Is Your Scent?

      “But thanks be to God, who always puts us on a display in Christ, and spreads through us in every place the scent of knowing Him. For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To some we are a scent of death leading to death, but to others a scent of life leading to life. And who is competent for this” (2Corinthians 2:14-16)? Praise God, our competence is not of ourselves but in Christ Jesus! Beloved, on a daily basis, we are put on display for the whole world, to show the world what it means to serve the one and only Jesus Christ. One place that had truly showcased this scent is the social media. Unfortunately this platform has equally proven that so many carry a contrary scent, since their scent is repelling people from coming to the Lord because of the conflicting smells emanating from them. They forgot the mandate: “No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone i…

Someone Is Listening…The Ball Is In Your Court

One would think that as technology improves the lives of the people around the world, the people themselves will be more caring and loving towards one another. On the contrary, people are more uncaring and calculating in their disdain for their fellow humans. Terrorism, domestic violence, wanton killings and hurting of people are at an all time high across the globe. People care more for their pets and other animals than they do for humans like them. In Christendom, the desire to get ahead in life has turned so many to competitive monsters in their homes, offices and their environment. Attitudes and characters that should not be heard or spoken of are common place amongst children of God. This in itself is a pointer that Jesus Christ is truly on His way back: “Sin will be rampant everywhere and the love of many will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12, NLT). Jesus Christ left a mandate for us His disciples and those who believe in Him as a guide for our dealings with one another: “This is…
