Thank You Lord for bringing us to this new month of August.
Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel, therefore hear the word at my mouth and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, thou shalt surely die and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity, but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, when a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness and commit iniquity and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die, because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered, but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous ma, that the righteous sin not and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned, also thou hast delivered thy soul – Ezekiel 3 : 17 – 21.
Most problems we have today as Christians is the issue of not obeying God’s instructions. We always choose to obey man more than God. The above bible verses talked about both the righteous and the unrighteous. No matter how small the instruction might be, all God expect from us is to obey. I want us to ask ourselves the following questions.
Why do we always refrain from obeying God’s instructions? How many people have God sent you to that you refuse to deliver the message? Was it because of the position the person holds in the society? Was it because of the position the person holds in your church? Was it because the person is not a believer? Was it because you doubted that person will not believe you that God has sent you to him? Are you doubting if that voice you heard was the voice of God? Or was it because you doubted yourself that you are not capable to be a messenger God can use?
What ever your answers might be, rethink about the consequences of not obeying that instruction. Any weaknesses that might have been responsible for your disobedience, go back to God and plead for mercy because it is better to be late than not to obey. For us to know the seriousness, of this warning, it was repeated in other two chapters in the same book of Ezekiel – chapter 18 : 23 – 28 and chapter 33 : 6 – 9 and in other part of the bible as well.
You might say O we are in the period of grace because Jesus Christ has come to set us free from any punishment for not obeying God’s instructions in the old testament. Brethren, we should wake up from our slumber because it is not too late for us to restart where we might have missed it because Jesus Christ said that He has come to fulfill the word not some part of the bible but every part of the bible. Some people might say that God forgave Jonah when he refused to go to Nineveh although he later went. Let me ask you, do you have the same grace as Jonah? There is age mate, there is school mate, class mate, street mate but there is no grace mate brethren.
There was a time God gave me a message to one leader, by God’s grace, I did my part by delivering what I was instructed to do but the other person refused to take it. I am not happy to see what has happened to the person and what is still happening to the person till now.
People of God there are great consequences in disobeying God’s instructions. Do your part no matter how you feel about the person. Don’t look or classify the person instead, take it that it is God that is speaking to you. Even if the message dosen’t sound logical and reasonable just obey because in one way or the other, we might be saving a soul and a generation.
PRAYER: O Lord, we don’t have any power of our own. Forgive us in any way we have disobeyed Your instructions. You are a God of first chance, second chance, third chance and fourth chance. By Your mercy, give us another chance my Father and give us the grace to deliver any message You will give to us as from now in the name of Jesus Christ.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and lineage of David). To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child ……..Luke 2: 4 – 20 (Kings James version).
Joseph left Galilee with his wife to be taxed not because of the wife’s delivery. His purpose of living was quite different from the plan of God. Most times we go to places for a specific motive and if our reason of going to the place does not coincide with the plan of God, the purpose of God will prevail. That is why at times we go to places with a mindset and we see ourselves doing another thing. God knows how to change the course of our action. Satan can still change the course of our action as well that is why it is very vital to commit everything we are doing into God’s hand.
When Jesus was to be born, the bible says that there was no place for the mother in any of the hotels, guest houses nor any lodging place but that could not stop the birth of Jesus. The bible did not mention that there were nurses, mid-wifes, doctors, ambulance, stretcher etc. You might say during that time those things were not available then but the traditional way of delivery was in place. The bible did not mention other people that could help her in the delivery process because if there were people that assisted Mary, they can boast of it tomorrow that they helped to deliver Jesus. The word of God say, I am the Lord, that is My name and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images – Isaiah 42:8.
As Jesus was being delivered aparently by Joseph the earthly father, there were people praying to see the unborn child. What a glory and grace upon Jesus. Despite the fact that He was born in a manger, that could not stop His destiny. The place we are born have no power to hold us down no matter how remote it might be. Our mindset need to change. Immediately He was born the first set of people that the angels appeared to was the shepherds. Why? Because seeing to where Jesus was born, if other people make the announcement, people might doubt them but when the shepherds make the announcement there will be no doubt. As they heard the news, they moved and went for the search of the child with the sign the angels has given to them.
Many people do say because of where they came from that is why they cannot have the connection like others. Wrong notion! As a child of God, your place of origin is not supposed to hold you down if you know what you are carrying. The connection you need is your connection with God.
When Simeon and Anna saw Jesus as He was brought into the house of God, they were very happy and thanked God for bringing His promises to reality. The purpose of Christmas is not only to eat and drink but to give thanks to God for making it possible to be part of the celebration of the anniversary of the birth of Jesus christ.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for this gift to mankind. Give us the grace to always remember the purpose of Christmas in the name of Jesus Christ.
Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ. I hope we are all doing great to the glory of God.
- Brethren, I don’t know what God is saying to you and I don’t know how you feel at this moment due to the present situation that is going on in the world. But I want to encourage you that this is not the time to run away from God or quit any Christian group. Of late, many people have left the forum.
The word of God will help us to know the different ways the devil uses to break marriages, the word of God will help us to know how we can build a strong home free of quarrel and misunderstanding, the word of God will help the singles to know their future spouses, the word of God will strengthen us to withstand every evil agenda of satan. God is merciful and He is a God of second and third chance. He is ever ready to forgive us anytime we ask for forgiveness. God want us to come back to Him.
When we switch on our television today anywhere in the world, what do you hear in the news other than how many people lost their lives today to coronavirus in each country, in each city etc. Are those words, words of encouragement that will give people confidence? Absolutely NOT AT ALL. That is what the news have to say. Is it bad to listen to news? No it is important but what I am saying is that we should not allow what they are saying in the news to cripple our mind for Christ because He is the only One that have solution to any problem. This is the time all of us need to come together and call upon God to have mercy on the world.
May God give us the grace to trust Him in the name of Jesus Christ.
For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind – 2 Timothy 1 : 7
The present situation in the world has brought fear to every nook and corner in the world. It doesn’t matter what is happening in the world today, the word of God cannot lie. According to the above opening chapter, God has not given us the spirit of fear, why then should you be afraid of whatever is happening. Can God lie? The bible says in Numbers 23 : 19 that, God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that he should repent. Hath He said and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken and shall He not make it good? We don’t have to be afraid of anything but rather trust God. Most times, we allow what we see, what we hear and what we feel to reduce the size of God. No situation is greater than God. See how common virus has crippled the world in such a short time. The question I always ask people is that ”Can we fear God as the world is afraid of Coronavirus now”? How many countries has been on lock down? We leave who has the key to the solution and start looking somewhere else where the solution is not sure.
Brethren, the bible says in 2 Chronicle 7 : 14 that, If My people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land. Are we ready to humble ourselves and go on our kneels or we are going to continue to look for solution where there is no solution? If we can humble ourselves, no matter how great the error and mistakes might be, God is merciful and He is ever ready to forgive us.
Prayer: May God give us the grace we need to know the truth because the bible says that we shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free in the name of Jesus Christ.
