Being Persecuted For Practicing Your Faith

IF YOU WERE ACCUSED OF BEING A CHRISTIAN, WOULD YOU BE FOUND GUILTY?


Dear brethren, this brief message was prepared for us by Charis, please be blessed as you read it as we have been. Let us continue to pray for one another, times like these requires prayers, some faith, steadfastness, and humble perseverance. 

now as for today's message, I was watching something on the news a few days ago and this very question came up. It really got me thinking about my own Spiritual walk with God.

Today I want us to ask ourselves this question, as we analyze ourselves:

·        Am I reading my bible faithfully? And if so am I doing so because I have to or for God’s glory (1st Corinthians 10:31: Well, whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, do it all for God’s glory.)?

·        Am I praying only because I have to (Philippians 4:6 and James 5:16)?

·        Do I share my faith with others or am I shy of criticism (Mark 16:15-16)?

·        Do I offer the other cheek when being insulted or do I act in defence in order to protect my feelings by insulting back (Matthew 5:38-40)?

·        Do I judge people who openly sin and apply my own sinful standards whilst I’m sinning in the dark (John 8:1-8)? Often, some weak-willed Christians are being discouraged by those who pretend to 'better' than others by pointing finger at the sins of others. We know the Bible says we must rebuke others in a gentle spirit and with love and not in a hateful and 'better than thou attitude' (Galatians 6:1) often the one who judges others is the one who will himself be excluded from God's Kingdom (Luke 18:12-14).

                           Would we be found guilty or walk free?

Brother and Sisters, today we would like to encourage you to get in touch with God in a solemn and dedicated way and this we do by really calling upon him for that priceless relationship. We read in Jeremiah 33:3 where God tells us to call on him and he will answer us, he will show us great and mighty things that we know not of. Also in 1Peter 1, we are called upon to live a Holy life.

Furthermore, 1Peter 2:12 we are told: “Your conduct among the heathen should be so good that when they accuse you of being evildoers, they will have to recognise your good deeds and so praise God on the Day of his coming.”

 Blessed Love and A Blessed Merry Christmas to all God's dearly loved Children

Dying In Your Sins

Confess Your Sins

“Therefore I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I am he you will die in your sins” (John 8:24).

We are reposting this message for this week. The Lord revealed to me (Brother Glenn) twice (to confirm that this is bound to happen) on 1 December 2020 and 4 December 2020 that the world will not recover from the economic effects caused by COVID-19.  Furthermore, the world leaders will soon be introducing a new way of trading without cash and people will be encouraged to move away from 'backward thinking' but to embrace the changing times. We thus encourage you all dear brethren to endure in prayer and be steadfast in your faith and convictions, our KING IS COMING SOON! 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Brethren, the Lord Jesus says that Christians should not look to political leaders for solutions but we should look to Him for answers. The Lord said He commanded us instead to pray for our leaders (2 Timothy 2:2) and our Land (2 Chronicles 7:14) and NOT to look to them as if they are irreplaceable and that He (Lord Jesus) is the answer! 

Also, we sincerely apologize for not posting messages, in fact, we did but the Blog did not update automatically it is only after a reader referred us to this that we noticed. 


Vision by Claudia (20 May 2020).

I had a vision from the Lord just before my morning prayers, the Lord showed me one of our faithful ministry members saying something bad to her son which hurt him. Immediately after uttering those words, she died and I saw her going to HELL. A messenger of the Lord in the appearance of a man appeared and said to me, "This woman would have gone to Heaven but she did not repent from the wrong thing she uttered to her son before she died so she went to HELL".

In the light of the above vision, we strongly encourage you dear brethren to take warning and continue to read the rest of the article, not just for you but to warn others as well! Some Christians often thinks they can say things to others without consequences just because we are saved and others are not. The bible warns us to tame our tongues and if we don't we risk losing our salvation (Matthew 12:36).

It is very sad that there are many Christians who think that once saved always saved applies with the Lord. That is really not true at all! Even after we are saved and born-again, we still need to acknowledge our mistakes daily and confess it in order to ask the Lord forgiveness (1 John 1:9). The apostle John did not write this epistle to the unsaved, he wrote it to Christians and this is in line with the Old Testament teaching. I’ll briefly explain below.

The Bible says, sin is not imputed where there is no law (Romans 4:15) that is why the apostle Paul said when the law came into operation he died, meaning his sin was acknowledged and he was to be judged accordingly (Romans 7:9). Similarly, in the Old Testament especially before the giving of the Law there were no sacrifices to atone for sin and people perished without the law (Romans 2:12).

However, after the Law was given on Mount Sinai (Exodus 20:1-17), the Lord knowing that people are naturally sinners and that people will be guilty of sin before Him (Romans 3:10), He provided the Levitical priesthood system and put in place an animal sacrifices to atone for sins so that God can forgive the sins of the people (Leviticus 4:3-35). When God established the Levitical priesthood to serve the Israelite's by making atonement for their sins, He knew the people would repeat their sins and they would have to offer sacrifices and confess their sins in order to receive forgiveness (Leviticus 5:5).


Do Not Be Deceived By Once Saved Doctrine

Therefore, what makes the once saved doctrine so dangerous is the fact that there is a general assumption that Christians are incapable of sinning after they are saved and we all know that is simply not true (Galatians 6:1). In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ whom I fear and who’s voice my family and I have heard warns that every brother or sister who is born-again if you sin purposely or unintentionally when you become aware of your offences, please confess your sins to the Lord and ask f
or His forgiveness that is the Lord’s provision to help us in our weaknesses to get right with God (1 John 2:1-2). If we fail to make right and sin, and it happens that we die without making right we will die in our sins and go HELL (John 8:24; Revelations 21:8).

In conclusion, the vision we shared above serves as a warning to us and reminds us of the Lord’s holiness and uncompromising Word that states, “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14 NIV).

Again, we extend an invitation to those who are not saved yet to make right with God and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.


Peace
Brother Glenn
