Being A True Servant Of God's Kingdom

Our Message Is Saving Souls

“It must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave” (Matthew 20:26-27 HCSB). 

Sometime in the year 2009, my family and I attended a Sunday morning service at our previous Church. During this particular Sunday morning, our pastor invited a guest speaker, a very confident young brother in the Lord who appeared then to be in his late 20’s. From what I learned, this brother was a regular invited guest speaker at the Church. However, with his preaching that morning, he delivered a very good message (Romans 10:15) to the delight and encouragement of everyone present. However, his frequent references to his achievements and association with well-know ministers during his sermon equally discouraged me and others. Now to some of us though, it appeared as if he was trying to draw attention to himself and his work (Jeremiah 9:24).

Man’s Self-imposed Authority

Brethren, like many others we observed, such preachers overflow with confidence and with a boastful sense of authority. As we know, Moses walked fearfully and humbly before the Lord (Hebrews 12:21; Numbers 12:3; Deuteronomy 9:25) faithfully serving his people. The Lord requires His servants to be humble and not to elevate themselves before the people and when this same Moses and Aaron lost sight of God’s Holiness, they were punished and humbled (Numbers 20:10). We agree, the preaching of God’s word should be proclaimed boldly however, our fear and respect for God should allow for the ray of humility to be visible and shine forth (Matthew 11:29; Philippians 2:6-8).

About 15 years ago, when I was in hospital sharing an apartment with a few other patients, my attention was drawn to one particular patient who was very sick and he was frequently visited by the leadership of his Church. On one occasion, a leader who was sent to the patient came in the name and authority of the ‘chief apostle’ came to boldly pronounce healing and bless the patient in the words of the ‘chief apostle’, however a few days thereafter the patient died. What I learned from that was the following, the words of healing and blessing was from a heart of faith but it had no effect on the patient because the patient had faith in the authority and words of man.

Kindly allow me to repeat myself here, many Christians will readily believe the statements of faith of their pastor and priest (whatever they are called) but they have no faith to believe for themselves what the Lord says. Just yesterday, (18/02/2018) Charis highlighted a point saying, many people would believe when you said that you have prayed for them but when you tell them the Lord spoke to you, that triggers their doubts. Like we alluded elsewhere on this blog, the Lord said that not everyone would believe and accept our testimony but there will be those who would listen and believe our message.

The Distinguishing Marks Of A True Servant

Briefly, a true Christian servant is selfless, mindful of others and showing real concern and consistency for those he or she is serving in the name of the Lord (Luke 10:30-37). Let me add, many Christians today regard their serving of others as a burden so they give up and think them serving is a weakness. No! Serving is no weakness God Himself continue to serve even the ungrateful (Matthew 5:45). Brethren, we know it is impossible to compare ourselves to our Almighty Lord Jesus; however, the Scriptures encourage us to imitate our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:1-2). First, a true servant of the Lord follows his teachings and abides by His word (Matthew 4:19; John 15:7). And of equal importance, a true Christian complaints to God if the burden of God’s work is too demanding (Numbers 11:14) for him or her instead of complaining or arguing (Philippians 2:14-15) such actions are seen as rebelliousness and God will met out punishment (Numbers 14:9-12). Furthermore, a true servant is driven by an unselfish spirit and inspired by love to see the good and well-being of others (2 Corinthians 8:9; 6:4-10). Also, a true servant does NOT stand back or make excuses not to serve nor does such a servant say NO to do God's work despite the challenges (1 Corinthians 9:16). Even God's Angels who are much powerful than humanity are obedient servants of God (Hebrews 1:14).

Finally, if we lack being a true servant we better repent and pray taking courage and putting on the apron of servant hood or humility and fulfil your Christian calling (1 Peter 5:5; Luke 12:37).

To accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please begin by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Keeping The Lamp Standing

Don't Flirt With Sin

"Be ready for whatever comes, dressed for action and with your lamps lit (Luke 12:35 GNB).

Vision by Claudia (21/04/2020).

I had a vision from the Lord during the early hours of above date, the devil appeared and an Angel of God (Jude 1:9). They were discussing me, I heard the Angel of the Lord saying to the devil 'the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking to Claudia and she is doing well' (Job 1:8). I sensed some evil spirits moving all around the devil and he said in reply, "I don't think she can keep the lamp standing". The Angel of God looked at him and walked away. End of vision! Like Job, he attacked her by inflicting her with a condition (Glory to God she is recovering daily from this affliction). As her parent's we are praying very hard for her daily while teaching her the scriptures and we know there is no reward for turning back (Hebrews 10:38), she is equally Heaven bound to follow the Lord no matter the devil's attacks. We know the devil issues challenges and our Lord Jesus Himself was tempted as His followers we must just be ready for whatever comes (Matthew 4:1-11). The night before [20/04/2020]Claudia received this message the devil appeared to me (Brother Glenn) in a dream and he attacked me verbally and physically to cause me to fear him, but I rebuked him in Jesus name and he flee (James 4:7).

Important note: The Lord have also given Claudia a vision relating to the end things on April 24, 2020, it is also very symbolic in nature we are and have been praying for interpretation and once the Lord provides more clarification we promise to share with you. 

Now brethren, the Lord had me write this article regarding this matter for this week. The Lord says many Christians that He called and anointed to serve the body have also received gifts from the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:4-11) are falling under the weight of Satan's attacks and consequently they cannot keep the lamp standing (Matthew 5:15). Please read this entire message and after this article, I promise you would have gain much faith and truth to build your salvation on in Jesus name. What Satan has left is just fear, sin and intimidation those who belongs to Christ he has no power to harm with death.

Brethren, this is a very important message that the Lord gave us for this week it is equal in importance to all the articles we wrote here and what we are yet to write if the Lord permits (James 4:15). As a reminder, the Lord once told us that every teaching from His Word should be treated with reverence, urgency and importance (2 Timothy 3:16).


Satan To The Opportunity

It is a fact that many Christians are not ready or well equipped to withstand the devil when he strikes (1 Peter 5:8). As there are many sins (Galatians 5:19-21; Revelations 21:8) people commits and which afflicts humanity and with Satan’s presence in the world (Revelations 12:12; Luke 10:18) so much options and chances does he have at his disposal to work against us. In addition, it is true that most people including Christians are repeating some of these sins daily; and as long as some of these sins are present in our lives the devil has control over that particular area of our lives. In other words, he has an opportunity to retard our progress in Christ and stagnate our spiritual growth and (Ephesians 4:27) thus denying us of spiritual gifts and blessings (John 9:31; Matthew 6:33; Deuteronomy 28:1-14).

Furthermore, I’d like to add by saying the following; please do not ‘flirt’ with sin. What I mean by this is that we often ‘try’ things out which appears to be ‘innocent’. However, as we continue ‘as casual’ observers the devil sows a seed of desire for that particular indulgence and when we bite he provides lots of ‘support’ to lock us in and this results in a daily struggle and practice. Therefore, if you ‘flirt with sin you ‘flirt’ with the devil and he is ready to enhance your desire and appetite for the thing(s) you crave for (Genesis 3:1-6). Being a minster of the gospel, we have been privileged to hear from some people who wandered from the path of truth into the addictive trap of sin by a simple casual indulgence into some sins. This has sadly trapped countless people deeply into sin where some just don’t have the courage and faith to escape the soul obsessive pleasures.


Did God Create a Devil?

Additionally, the Bible says that Satan is a fallen angel (Luke 10:18; Ezekiel 28:12-17) and his nature is corrupted with sin and because Adam and Eve listened to him humanity became equally corrupted and adopted the sinful nature which separates us like Satan from a Holy God (Isaiah 59:2). But thanks be to God almighty for the gift of salvation through Christ our Lord for all the humanity (John 3:16).

As for the devil, someone once asked me is there no chance for the devil to repent and be saved? NO! The bible says salvation is for people and not for angels including Satan and his fallen angels (Hebrews 2:16). Why? Well, people earn salvation by confessing their sins and renouncing it and by receiving God’s gift of salvation through faith and that’s the basis of being saved (Hebrews 11:6). Does Satan need faith to be saved after having being created by God (as a guardian angel) and being in God’s Presence (Ezekiel 28:14-15)

Not at all! He can certainly not have faith which operates through hope if he has been in God’s Presence and ministered before God. Being a biblical fact which the Lord Jesus Christ revealed to me (Brother Glenn) recently (early April 2020), that Satan set himself up as God’s rival (Isaiah 14:12-15). In other words and on account of the preceding scripture, the devil’s rebelliousness against God is as such that he thought he was higher or above the God Almighty. Therefore, God did not create a devil to oppose humanity, but he chose to be one and people follow their desires either to follow the devil or God. Scripturally, God tolerates no rivals, before Him there was no God even after Him (if it was possible) there will be no other God for He is God alone (Nahum 1:2; Isaiah 43:10). In the light of this scripture, the Almighty God was not created nor formed, He exists from ancient times with no beginning of time or days (Daniel 7:9-10; Psalm 90:2; Hebrews 7:3).


The World Where Good And Evil Exists Which One You Choose

The bible says, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matthew 7:13-14 NIV). 

Now, being in rivalry with God, the devil set himself up as a god (with evil and debarred from possessing any good it is when he became a devil) and he (2 Corinthians 4:4) inherited the nature of sin and evil and all who follows him shares in that nature of sin and rebelliousness against God’s standards of morality (1 John 3:10; 1 Peter 1:16; John 8:44). He could not rival God in terms of holiness, since all things in all creation lives and exists through Him and are dependent on Him and subjected to His authority (Romans 11:36; Colossians 1:16). Therefore, the devil can only satisfy that nature and being consumed by evil and hatred for God, he attacks humanity to blind and deceive while turning people against God (2 Corinthians 4:4). Now since Satan operates as a god, on the evil side, he opposes and competes against God and he has accepted his faith as being eternally doom for destruction (Revelations 12:12; Revelations 20:20) and the nature of evil cannot exists in God’s creation (Revelation 21:4) and so God will be all and for all (1 Corinthians 15:8).

In conclusion, the choice to do sin always rests with us and to trust the Lord Jesus Christ is also a matter of choice we must decide wisely and avoid little traps those are ingredients to fall deeper into sin (Deuteronomy 30:19). In Jesus name, we beseech you brethren to keep the lamp standing and that is possible through faith, endurance, obedience, humility and prayerful devotion to God (Matthew 7:24-27). Finally our doubts, complaints, rebellion and our unbelief will never be able to change the eternal purposes of God. His plans are firm, unshaken and laid out, the devil failed and the future belongs to God Almighty and all those He called to be part of it (Proverbs 21:30; Revelations 21:5). Don’t you want to be part of God’s new beginning?

If you would like to receive God's forgiveness and be set free from the guilt of sin, and be born again please pray using this suggested prayer, our  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

HOW DO I REALLY FORGIVE FORGIVE OTHERS?

Forgive As An Expression Of Love

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matthew 6:14-15 NIV).

Given to the above scripture, God demands of us to completely forgive without repeating every time the nature of the offence to the person. Some time ago a brother shared with us what a brother in the Lord wrote to him.  He wrote, ‘I have forgiven you for the offence you committed against me’ while he was repeating the offence the brother committed against him and at the same time he was piling more offences onto the record. After reading the entire lamentation, I felt the spirit of unforgiveness and bitterness from the content of that letter. Now, not only did that brother not forgive, he showed his unforgiveness through his disengagement with the other brother. Additionally, this brother’s unforgiveness was further expressed through him repeating to others the offence, now isn’t that a grand unforgiving spirit?

Scripturally, God is Love or Love is God. Let us consider what we read in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ‘’Love is patient, love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes, and always perseveres”.

Repeating The Offence To Others Equals Unforgiveness

Have you ever forgiven someone and when they commit another offence to you; you simply go back to the past reminding the person what he or she did some time ago, are we able to really say I forgave you in the first instance? (Luke 17:4). NO! Needless to say, many Christians are struggling to forgive but they sing very loud and preach well-prepared messages but when they see the brother or sister who offended them they are being clothed with the spirit of Haman-hatred but he wanted an audience with the King (Esther 5:13). In contrast, how would a Christian be given an audience with King Jesus when they hate and harbour unforgiveness towards their brother whom they can see?

There is a huge difference between brushing something aside and really forgiving someone. With me (Charis), God really deals with me when I am struggling to forgive someone. I will literally dream about the person several times in a week (imagine how uncomfortable that is) until I surrender to God and really allowing God to take over and ‘flush’ me clean with His Holy Spirit. I literally give Him that load and once the Lord took the load (burden) I enjoy an unexplainable feeling of deep peace, joy and comfort.  

Going back to the previous two articles we shared with you: ‘’Including God’’ and ‘’Beauty in Christ’’ we emphasised that we need to include God in our journey of forgiving others and let that add to our beauty in Christ, not to mention all the blessings we stand to inherit!

 Finally, we never ‘’have’’ to forgive just because we are ‘’Christians’’. We forgive because of who we are in Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

 Forgiveness leads to Love and we know who is Love, God Almighty! Now, remain blessed and encouraged, brothers and sisters.

 With the love of Christ

Cast Aside Your Fear Of People

“I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, and of the son of a man who will be made like grass? And you forget the Lord your Maker, Who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth; you have feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor when he has prepared to destroy. And where is the fury of the oppressor? (Isaiah 51:12-13)

“Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

Previously, we shared a message on fearing God, in which we mentioned the fear of man as one of the factors that can hinder us from experiencing a strong relationship with the Lord. The truth is that if you don’t have reverence and fear for God, then most certainly you will live your life in fear of man and the uncertainties of life. In this week’s message, we will emphasize what the Bible teaches us about fearing man.

As the day of the Lord’s return draws near, Christians all over the world are finding themselves encircled by a permissive society that is hostile to God’s truth (2 Timothy 3:1-4; Matthew 24:12). If you don’t agree with these “modern” lifestyles and sinful behaviors, you will find yourself being looked down upon, isolated, or even being hated. We are living in the days when we have many who “call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20 NIV). Additionally, we are seeing an upsurge of violence against Christian believers as Satan continues to use deceived individuals and false religions to discourage or destroy God’s children. These may seem like isolated incidents and the world’s media tries to “cover-up” or ignore the many cases where Christians are being targeted for persecution because of our faith. However, for those who are discerning the times, you will remember that the Lord Jesus forewarned us that there will come a time when we, His followers, will be “hated by all” for His name’s sake, and He encouraged us to endure to the end in order to be saved (Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13). He also forewarned us to “stay awake at all times, praying that you may have the strength to escape all these things that are going to take place and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36 ESV).

Should we be Afraid of Man?

The Lord created man to have free will, and He operates with us on the principle of choices and consequences (Deuteronomy 11:27-28; 30:15, 19; Joshua 24:15; Galatians 6:7-8). On the other hand, Satan uses force, coercion, manipulation, and other schemes and devices in order to force us to comply with his will (Job 1:13-18; Job 2:4, 7). Persecution of believers is not new; throughout the ages, Satan has used wicked men to abuse and misuse power in order to force their will on others. Children of God who stand firmly on God’s Truth have been threatened, excommunicated, insulted, abused, tortured, and persecuted in all forms, even by being put to death because of their faith (Hebrews 11:36-38).

In both the Old and New Testaments, we see righteous men being mistreated by others, for example, Abel being murdered by his brother Cain (Gen 4:4-10), Peter and John being beaten and threatened not to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 5:28, 40), Daniel’s three friends being thrown into a fiery furnace for disobeying a king’s order to worship an idol (Daniel 3:13-20), Jeremiah being thrown into a cistern for prophesying truth (Jeremiah 38:1-6), etc. In these examples and several others, the Lord encourages us not to fear man. As human beings, naturally, we are fixated with life here on earth, but God sees from the beginning to the end, and He is the Righteous Judge who ultimately avenges the righteous (Deuteronomy 32:35; Romans 12:19).

As King Saul experienced, fearing men can cause us to be rebellious and disobedient to the Lord, hence displeasing Him while losing His favor and promises (1 Samuel 15:1-3;10-11;17-24). Fear of man also causes us to be snared, trapped (Proverbs 29:25), and to carry out shameful things (Matthew 14:6-10).

Instead of fearing man, we should take courage in God’s Word and promise, and not given to the spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). The Lord Jesus came to lay down His life for His sheep (John 10:15-17; 1 John 3:16), and He admonishes us to pray for our enemies and for those who persecute us or mistreat us (Matthew 5:44). As a result of sin, the ungodly reject the message of repentance and turning to our Lord Jesus Christ for salvation (Romans 10:16; Acts 2:38; 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10), but our duty is still to love them and pray for them as the Lord commanded.

Fear of Man when Witnessing

For those of us who go out to share the gospel, there are many instances where we are threatened or kicked out of certain places and warned not to witness there. In such instances, it is important to remember that we are sharing a life-giving message, and we should therefore take courage, like Peter and John, to obey God rather than human beings (Acts 5:29). As an encouragement, some of us at times have learned to quickly walk away and leave when we see someone who seems to be walking towards us to stop us (John 10:39).

There are also times when you might feel intimidated to witness a certain person, especially if they appear to be of a higher social class. Following our Master’s example of boldly sharing the good news with the rich young ruler, we likewise are called to share without fear because the Lord Jesus is able to save all who choose to follow and obey Him (Luke 18:18-27). You may also have friends or church members who you are afraid to correct for fear of losing them. Prosperity preachers avoid rebuking sin in order to maintain members and financial offerings. However, for true children of God, it would be good to pray for deliverance from the fear of man and simply obey the Lord as He leads us to share in the love and for the sake of eternal life (Ezekiel 33:7-9). We see in the Bible that the Lord shared truth even at the departure of many of his disciples (John 6:60-66). But those who are the Lord’s will humbly accept the truth and remain in Christ (John 6:67-69), for the Lord Jesus said: “..no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them” (John 6:65).

Finally, turn away from the fear of man that you may enjoy the blessing of fearing the Lord, walking in obedience to Him (Psalm 128:1-4), trusting Him, and being kept safe (Proverbs 29:25). To begin a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Bitterness Has It's Roots In [D]Evil

Reconcile And Meet The Other Halfway

“Pursue peace with all men, as well as holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. Be careful that no one falls short of the grace of God, so that no root of bitterness will spring up to cause trouble and defile many” (Hebrews 12:14-15 NIV).

Before we share today’s message kindly allow us to share an interesting vision my wife had on the 23rd of September 2017, (which was on the birthday of one of the women in her vision) she saw two women boarding a train together. Now in real life, these two women had a bitter feud a few months ago and there still exists some strong feelings of hurt and unforgiveness between them with neither of them willing to submit and ask for forgiveness. They were meant to get off at the same train station but they chose to get off at different stations. As it were one of the women got off first and saw the other women coming towards her from a long distance and she decided to walk towards her in an effort meet her halfway.

Thus and after prayer, the Lord revealed to my wife that people (especially Christians) who were involved in a dispute should be willing to forgive one another and be prepared to meet each other halfway and reconcile to pursue peaceful relations (Luke 15: 20; Hebrews 12:14).


Bitterness, The Cause Of Divisions

Being a Christian or a follower of Christ we are commanded amongst other things to “rid [y]ourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind” (1 Peter 2:1 NIV; Ephesians 4:31). However, and on the contrary for some Christians, these reprimands from the Word of God does not exist for them, they give full vent and without regard for the Lord to their ill-feelings towards others (Proverbs 29:11).

Earlier this year, and as a minister of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, I was invited to a discussion that involved the proposed enactment of laws by our government that could potentially impact on the work and activities of the local Church here in South Africa. As a collective body of leaders, we were supposed to organize ourselves into a unified force but sadly, some pastors are not good listeners and neither are they willing to learn in humility, instead they are the ones who want to be heard (James 1:19). From that gathering, there was no unity or unity of purpose, despite the guidelines that were provided in fact each one had his or her own way of dealing with the situation.

Now from what I observed, I could tell that some people were driven by their own agendas. Consequently, after just one meeting almost all the pastors abandoned the discussion and the main reason being bitterness! Some pastors could not stand each other, there was bitter envy, rivalry, and recognition for attention. What I heard from them, these pastors are well-versed in the scriptures and flawless in speech but they had no love and respect for each other. In my observation, they have learned how to rightly divide the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15), while unity in love was not pursued.

Love For God With A spirit Of Bitterness Equals Hypocrisy

Additionally, we could be consumed with love for the Lord and His Word and being eloquent speakers but harboring bitterness and hateful feelings towards your brother in Christ renders you just a ‘talker’ who is inflamed with evil (1 John 4:20). Let me give it to you, this kind of a state of heart dishonors the Lord and renders our salvation useless (Matthew 6:15). Why are some Christians finding it hard to make room for love in their hearts if they disagreed with others? Why don’t they just forgive? Because they equally have no room for the Word of God in their hearts that is why they don’t have love, instead they hate and walk in unforgiveness and as we rejected the Word of God, He rejected us (1 Samuel 15:26).

Brethren, let me put it this way if we cannot stand the presence and existence of our fellow brother or sister in the Lord, we are in DARKNESS which is driven by a bitter and grudging spirit (1 John 2:9-11).

Being found in such a state of heart drives us away from the Presence of the Lord, we would either have to repent or live away from the Lord with feelings of bitterness. Furthermore, we can recall how the Lord strongly corrected a few brethren who openly showed hostility towards those who offended them and sadly such bitterness has driven some of them away from the Lord. And disturbingly, when they were being corrected they grew bitter roots and not only were they bitter but they teamed up with Mr malice in an expression of the condition of their hearts.

It is true, none of us are immune to the sharp arrows of bitterness which come through the operation of Satan (1 John 3:8; 2 Corinthians 2:11). In other words, if we accept the evil of bitterness we essentially reject the command to love and forgive and the Bible says, we must guard our hearts against the influence of evil thoughts and desires which will eventually affect our behaviour (Proverbs 4:23; Matthew 15:19).

Furthermore, I recently listened attentively how a God-fearing father corrected two of his daughters who were involved in a quarrel that created bitter feelings between them. In his address to them, he gently encouraged them to resist harboring feelings of bitterness, despite the contentment of ‘getting even’ by being malicious. Instead, he warned them to resist the temptation of accepting malicious thoughts and he further explained to them that opening their hearts to evil intent is an invitation to the devil and demonic influences as he firmly rooted his correction on the value of the Scriptures (Ephesians 2:1-2; 5:8-11).

Having said this, we would also like to add that a person who is full of bitterness is in hiding regarding his or her true feelings. Let's face it, the heart of a person in such a condition is far from God because he or she would be acting deceitfully, irrational and in self-justification (Jeremiah 17:9). Being in a state of bitterness unsettles us emotionally and being judge of our own hurts makes us blind. When this happens we chose to give effect to our hurt by repaying back hurtfully while we subconsciously reject scriptural guidance and adopts anger over peace (1 Peter 3:9; Romans 12:17).

Finally, as Christians are we willing to humble ourselves and meet each other halfway in a bid to uphold our Christian values? Or are we content to reject peace and the loving ways of the Lord while avoiding each other and carrying around the hurt and the unforgiveness? Brethren, while we position ourselves daily to yield to the Lord and His Holy Spirit we encourage you to do likewise and repent from any bitterness, unforgiveness, and grudges because in the eyes of the Lord the one carrying this bondage is guilty of being disobedient to Him.

For those who are not saved yet, we encourage you to give your life to our Lord Jesus Christ to receive eternal life when you pass from this life by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments about this article or our ministry, you may please contact us.
