Burning for God is not a license to forget about the real nature of God!
Paul said in Romans 6:1 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”
many of us are forgetting that the Foundation of Christianity is HOLINESS
I so respect the fact that we are after Fulfilling the will of the Kingdom, and God is pleased with it
But when holiness is neglected, no matter the fire in you, he does not care
When the nature of holiness is forgotten, no matter the level of manifestation, he will not be moved
“Fire fire fire” or “power power power”
as we shout all this, it does not move God at all.
what move God is IF YOU ARE ABLE TO STAND ON THE LAST DAY!
With your level of Spiritual growth, Can YOU BE ABLE TO STAND WHEN THE DAY OF TRIBULATION COMES!
Or you will be among the people that the bible says “even the very elect shall be deceived” and renounce their faith (Matthew 24: 24)
Haaa … this is a very serious matter!
When the Bible says “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12)
The Bible was not joking when saying this!
Have you ever ask yourself these questions below?
why are you growing spiritually???
where are we truly going to with all these Spiritual growth exercises?
why must you serve God???
Why must you WALK IN THE SPIRIT???
Paul and Christ said there is a time which this world is about to Encounter and that is THE LAST DAYS
The last days is THE END OF THIS WORLD
But before that will be made possible, there will be A GREAT TRIBULATION which will hit the earth and Christ said “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13)
It is not about the amount of fire or thunder you can call down, but what matters is CAN YOU BE ABLE TO STAND ON THE DAYS OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION?
There are more to see and know in God than just material things.
There are more to see and know in God than just anointing and power.
There are more to see and know in God than Just programs and Church activities.
There is a time that all churches will stand to face THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
Apostle Paul said to Timothy “For the time(End of the age) will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” (2 Timothy 4:3)
Listen,….Paul was not talking to unbelievers or worldly people,… NO! He was telling Timothy about the people in the church
These people will be carried away with their lust,
Many of them will struggling with sinful life in the secret while crying for power.
Many of them will Pray because they want to FULFILL the will of the flesh
Many of these people in the church and those crying for revival will be rule by the SPIRIT OF THIS PERILOUS TIME…
God is not moved by manifestation, he is moved only by those who can stand on the day of the TRIBULATION
The reason why you have to grow more in his word is so that you can hold unto your God even when you are put into trial and temptation
The reason why you must cry for revival fire so that life of God can be made manifest and dominate every life of the flesh.
The reason why we cry for the power of the holy Spirit, is not for people to fall down, roll on the ground and dirty their bodies… NO! The major plan of God is for you to STAND AS A WITNESS and as an ambassador of the Kingdom, so that when TRIBULATION comes, you can be able to help the fellow saints TO STAND TILL THE END
look at what Jesus said about those that endured; He said; “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” (Revelation 2:10)
It is only those that CAN ENDURE, THAT WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE, not those who are fully anointed or have many titles or influence or fame
All this things does not matter to God,
the question is; IF TRIBULATION COMES CAN YOU BE ABLE TO STAND?
With all your working in the church or with all your going to programs, can you be able to STAND THE DAYS OF TRIBULATION
No wonder! Paul understood this MYSTERY, that is why he cried out and said “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” (1 Corinthians 9:27)
Paul knew that his Apostleship is not a credential to END WELL IN THIS WORLD.
He knew his anointing is not the credentials to END WELL IN THIS WORLD.
He knew his title and activities in church can not guarantee him to END WELL IN THIS EARTH
so the only thing that can help him is when he “keep under his body, and bring it into subjection:” to the government of the holy ghost.
Only the “SPIRIT OF HOLINESS” Can the grant you that access to the strength that can make you stand even in the days of tribulations
Only the THE SPIRIT OF GOD which is the HOLY SPIRIT that can make you stand!
The Holy Spirit has only one function in man, and that is to make you be LIKE GOD, i.e to be holy like God
When your Holiness is fulfilled then it is legal to ask for power, anointing, grace, material things and many more when it is in alignment with his will
But when all these mentioned above are received without Holiness… it is always leading to sin
because “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Romans 11:29)
So until everything you ask is on a platform of holiness (through the help of the Holy spirit) then it is accepted and legal by God.
any one that receive the gift or the calling of God without Holiness will end up like the men in Matthew 7:22-23
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
So when holiness is not recognize then God is also not recognize despite that such person is manifesting greatly
and the danger there is that when they call down angels, Angels of God will Come down and manifest powerfully but God does not recognize such person in his kingdom….. because the “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Romans 11:29)
HOLINESS IS THE MAIN DEAL OF CHRISTAINITY
No church is called unto prosperity or Deliverance or manifestation and many more…. All Churches are called into one thing and that is HOLINESS!
Look at all the prophets in the Bible, Their main target is to bring the nations to God by asking them to repent from their sins and coming into holiness
Look at the Apostles, their sermons and preachings are full of the spirit of Holiness and making the churches to remain in holiness
Look at the book of revelation, from beginning to the end, you will see that many people that entered the new Jerusalem entered there not because of the power but because of Total Holiness and many that entered into the lake of fire is because they refuse to endure more to live in holiness and Righteousness
Look at Christ, The first preaching or sermon that was written in the Bible was; “…Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt 3:2, Mark 1:15)
GOD IS ONLY MOVED BY PEOPLE WHO CAN RETAIN THAT LIFE OF HOLINESS not Life of power or anointing.
Peter said “ And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:” (1 Peter 1:17)
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12)
so the question still remains the same;
is not about the fire or power or anointing, CAN YOU BE ABLE TO STAND FIRM WHEN THE DAYS OF THE TRIBULATION ARIVE?
Remember this! , “For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21)
So Seek God first, so that he can make you stand firm through out this perilous time, so as to join him at the end of our race on Earth and make us come out victorious and rejoice in the new Jerusalem that is about to come.
GOD IS MORE THAN JUST POWER, MATERIAL THINGS, BENEFITS AND MANY MORE….. There are more to still know in our God
For “…Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9)
so don’t seek God for the benefit, seek him for who he is….
