Immoral Conduct Affects Church Health

Immoral Conduct Affects Church Health

Abstain From Immoral Conduct For Church Health

(Passage: James 4)

Immoral conduct affected the early church and God’s miracle stopped happening. The people deviated from the worship of the living God and substituted it for conduct that God disapproved.

Bible detests immoral conducts: Apostle James reproved the early church as stated,

“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures” (James 4:1-3).

Lesson Against Immoral Conduct

A Christian must live a principled lifestyle to enjoy God’s benefits. Christians must prioritize holiness and yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit so that we can prosper.

Believers must understand that immoral activities are detestable to God. God requires his children to abstain from activities that satisfy the carnal appetite.

Christians are required to desist from immoral conduct that violates God’s requirement of holiness.

Immoral conducts are detestable to God, believers must endeavor to avoid it to fully satisfy God!

A believer who intends to enjoy God’s blessing must serve God in Spirit. He must not be a hypocrite who offers fake services with the secret intention of receiving God’s benefits.

Anyone who lives in sin must repent and live a pure life. God cannot be deceived, he will only reward those who refused to succumb to the works of the flesh but serve him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).

Prayer of Holiness

Dear God, please help me to abstain from immoral conduct. Help me and other Christians to meet your expectations with faithful services. Save us from immoral leadership also! Help the brethren to serve you with pure motives to incur your blessings.

I also pray that you please help the brethren to operate in love and submit to the leadership of your Holy Spirit so that your name can be glorified. Please keep the church pure to remain fit for the second coming of your Son Jesus Christ. For in the name of Jesus Christ I have made my requests. Amen.

God Frowns at Sin and Embraces Holiness

God Frowns at Sin and Embraces Holiness

The term “Daughters of Zion” was used on many occasions to refer to the beauty and pride of Israel; however, in some instances, God down tune importance of “Daughters of Zion” into a piece of entity worthy of severe punishment due to Israelites’ sins.

 

One of the instances is highlighted, “Moreover the Lord says: “Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, And walk with outstretched necks And wanton eyes, Walking and mincing as they go, Making a jingling with their feet, Therefore the Lord will strike with a scab The crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, And the Lord will uncover their secret parts” (Isaiah 3:16-17).

 

Lesson on God frowns at Sin and embraces Holiness

assassination-attempt-268910_640God will not turn a blind eye on any Christian who goes against His will.

He can not bless anyone who persists in sin! Since he is just and faithful, the Creator cannot exonerate any of his children from sin – unless the fellow repent.

 

For any Christian to enjoy optimum blessing and protection of God, he (or she) must ensure that he complies with God’s laws.

Holiness is God’s standard, and all his children are required to be holy in order to be in good terms with him.

 

Prayer to frown at Sin and embrace Holiness like God

Praying hands over open bibleDear God, I understand that sin can create a barrier between you and I; therefore, I am determined to run from sin.

I ask for your grace to live a holy and acceptable life before you so that I can qualify for your blessings.

 

Please bless me on earth, and also count me worthy to receive your heavenly blessings.

Please let your grace be sufficient for me so that I can live a satisfying life before you always.

For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Holiness Preaching of Jesus Christ

Holiness Preaching of Jesus Christ

Holiness – The Fundamental Teaching of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, unlike other teachers of his time, taught fundamental truth and God’s principles that could provoke any audience into a protest.

He analyzed different controversial topics and simplified God’s words for people to have better understanding of God’s requirement of holiness.

For example, Jesus taught people and said:

 

    1. Bless those who curse you (Luke 6:28)

 

    1. Give to everyone who asks you something (Luke 6:30)

 

    1. Do as you want other people to do to you (Luke 6:31)

 

    1. Love your enemies (Luke 6:35)

 

    1. Do not judge others (Luke 6:37)

 

  1. Give abundant charity to other people (Luke 6:38)

 

Lesson on Holiness

holinessChristians must continuously follow the principles of Jesus Christ by teaching people the basic facts of God’s kingdom.

Some truth will be uncomfortable and hurtful, yet people need to hear them so that they can understand God’s requirements for his kingdom, and thereby comply with them.

However, we (believers) must ensure to preach what we practice and also lead by examples to motivate people into godliness.

 

Meanwhile, the basis of speaking the truth of God’s kingdom must not be based on anyone’s holiness standard.

That is, whether a Christian still struggles to comply with God’s laws in one area of his/her life or not, he/she is still required to preach God’s truth at all times – without any dilution or over-simplicity.

God’s righteous standard remains irrevocable; therefore, believers have to preach it always.

 

We must learn from Jesus whose preaching throughout the scripture laid emphasis on holiness – as the only requirement that qualifies anyone for God’s kingdom.

Christ even stated,

“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).

 

In addition, for any Christian to adequately comply with God’s righteous standard and preach it, he/she must have been empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Without him (Holy Spirit) in control, it is absolutely impossible for anyone to please God.

The Spirit will encourage us to love God and our neighbors well.

He will also help us to live by example and preach undiluted word of God.

 

Prayer of Holiness

Dear Jesus Christ, please help me to be an honest Christian who will live according to the scripture and also preached the truth of your kingdom.

Empower me with your Holy Spirit to live holy and acceptable life before you; let your divine Spirit give me a contrite heart “To talk the talk and walk the walk” for the purpose of benefitting your kingdom.

When my earthly race is over, please count me worthy in your eternal kingdom to rejoice in your presence forever!

For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Do You Serve An Unstoppable God?

Do You Serve An Unstoppable God?

You should know that God is an unstoppable deity that no one can stop under whatever circumstance.

Have you made your enemies realize they are just wasting their time trying to mess with you – since you are a child of “an unstoppable God?”

Devil is an enemy of righteousness that would intend to attack God’s children.

Christians must prove the awesomeness of their God by keeping the enemy to his debased status.

Each Christian ought to declare with the full affirmation: “No enemy can stop me because I serve an unstoppable God!”

Satan the enemy of righteousness has the common practice of harassing God’s children with the goal of forcing them into subjection and rob them of their blessings.

Christians must be vigilant to stomp their feet in defiance to the enemy’s attacks and prevail over him.

How more firm do I need to stress the need for Christians to understand their worth in God?

Believers are far from being ordinary people. We have the authority of Jesus Christ endowed on us to live above any limitation that the enemy may want to impose on us.

Indeed, we Christians must understand the strength of an invincible God invested in us. In as much the Creator is alive, there is no force, assault, or the onslaught of the enemy that can prevail over us.

Once believers understand their worth, Satan has no choice than to go and hide in the cocoon of his debased status. How far can your enemy run from God’s fierce arrow? ☺

 

The Major Facts That Satan Will Prevent Anyone From Knowing

weaponSatan understands the effective weapons that we children of God can use against him and prevail.

His goal is to prevent us from utilizing the weapons so that we can live under his subjection and prey on us.

The enemy will gain ground against believers in as much he can keep us distracted from using our effective weapons! Believers must understand their roles – as God’s children.

We must understand our rights and exercise them appropriately.

Faith Works

Any Christian who maintains his stand to declare his unbeatable faith in God will fight the devil to a standstill and prevail over him.

However, it is very unfortunate that many people are ignorant of the devil’s plots.

They have been wrongly indoctrinated to assume the enemy as an “All-powerful” being. Whereas he is not!

Satan is nobody special – other than a fallen angel who rebelled against God and was ousted from his prestigious position to await the eternal punishment of hellfire.

“How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14, NIV).

Unfortunately, Satan – the disposed of fallen angel and his co-culprits have manipulated people to ignorantly presume him of having a supreme capability.

The enemy instigated fear into people’s minds, causing them to walk naively into his traps to suffer.

Those victims are out there trying to figure out the way out of their troubles.

How better precise can the Bible be when it declares,

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, KJV).

 

Christian Be Vigilant – Your Enemy Is Full of Garbage!

Get the fact fast and get it right. Satan manipulates his prey to believe his deceptions that he is an “All-powerful” being.

Indeed, the enemy may be skillful, but not without flaws.bible application

Satan does not have all-encompassing strength. He has weaknesses that he keeps from his prey.

 

Ruminate on These Facts!

Whatever notion that could make anyone assume Satan as an “All-powerful creature” ought to be declared absurdity! How can a “created creature” be considered as an “All-powerful being?”

Guess what? The enemy tells lies and creates false impressions. He manipulates the naïve to perceive him as the most powerful being.

However in the real sense,
Satan is nobody special other than a bigot creature doomed to the eternal condemnation of hellfire!

Everyone must understand that a “created” creature (Satan) cannot be more powerful than his creator (God).

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand” (Isaiah 64:8, NIV)

 

The Word Will Liberate You

word liberateThe means of prevailing over Satan – the adversary of God’s children – is to have a clear understanding of God’s word.

Whoever wants to live a victorious life on earth must give him or herself into thorough studying of God’s word.

The need for having a deeper understanding of God’s word cannot be over-emphasized.

A Christian who expects to live a triumphant life on earth must know what the Bible has for him (or her)!

Don’t forget how we started this journey. The topic of discussion remains, “Do You Serve an Unstoppable God?”

Don’t ignore this question but give your affirmative YES for it.

No Christian should assume any devil, demon, or human can stop him from reaching God’s ultimate position designated for his life.

Again, a serious Christian should understand that he or she is serving God that no one can stop.

The Bible states,

“If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31, KJV)

Know who you are in God, and you will live triumphantly throughout the days of your life.

Give an affirmative response that your God – whom you serve – cannot be stopped by whatever circumstance.

The enemy may try to stop you, but he will ultimately fail since you serve an “All-powerful – the Almighty God.”

Saul vs David

Saul attempted David’s life many times. He schemed some persuasive methods to attack and kill the young man.

He even promoted David and set him up for failure, but the young man came on top of the scheme.

When all manipulations have failed, Saul launched direct attacks and mobilized his entire army to go after David.

Guess what? David still prevailed!

None of Saul’s attempts to get rid of David worked – because he served God that no one can stop.

(1 Samuel 18:10-11; 1 Samuel 18:17-21; 1 Samuel 19:9-11; 1 Samuel 20:31; 1 Samuel 23:8; 1 Samuel 31:1-6)

Sennacherib vs Hezekiah

King Sennacherib had a superior army and disdained King Hezekiah to his face.

He even cursed Hezekiah’s God and asked his captain to speak in the Hebrew Language to demean his people.

Sennacherib lashed out to Hezekiah’s people and said,

“Does not Hezekiah persuade you to give yourselves over to die by famine and by thirst, saying, “The Lord our God will deliver us from the hand of the king of Assyria”? Has not the same Hezekiah taken away His high places and His altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, “You shall worship before one altar and burn incense on it”?

Do you not know what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of other lands? Were the gods of the nations of those lands in any way able to deliver their lands out of my hand?

Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed that could deliver his people from my hand, that your God should be able to deliver you from my hand?

Now, therefore, do not let Hezekiah deceive you or persuade you like this, and do not believe him; for no god of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people from my hand or the hand of my fathers. How much less will your God deliver you from my hand?’” (2 Chronicles 32:11-15, NKJV).

God fought for Hezekiah (who reserved his trust in him). Hezekiah did not lift a finger, yet Sennacherib lost the war.

Not only that, but the arrogant king also slumbered to a mysterious death from the sword of his own children. (2 Chronicles 32:20-22).

Lessons to Learn from the Old Kings

 

  • Enemy Will Make Some Efforts
    Satan will try to stop you from having peace and success, but he will ultimately fail.
    Size does not matter when it turns to have faith in God. Jehovah will defend his people irrespective of size, weapon, or influence.Every attempt that Satan makes against you will fail, and you will have victory over him.
  • Don’t Be Scared, Enemy Can’t Win
    Satan will try all means to stop you from reaching your goals.
    His targets may include family, finance, career, and health. The enemy has no other job than to harass God’s children.However, the fact that the enemy will attempt to assault you should not make you scare since you have an unstoppable God that lives in you.

Bible Reader Plan-928

Do you serve Unstoppable God – the one that no one can restrict?

The enemy will try all means to stop you from reaching your goals. His targets may include family, finance, career, and health.

Something not funny about this subject matter is that Satan has gotten advanced in his tactics against believers.

His improved methods include using systematic attacks that are not easily detected.

Have you wondered why nothing you do ever come to the positive side of your boss?

Have you been depressed and dropped your vision because some people are unfair and have fabricated lies against you?

Have you considered yourself a victim of rumors from both friends and enemies – neighbors, family, classmates, coworkers, church members, government authority, and others?

 

Be Smart Above and Beyond: Satan has worse intentions

be smart“The thief (Devil) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus Christ) have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10, NKJV).

Get the grip of your irresistible faith in God, because Satan is all set to stop you by all means.

You shouldn’t give him a chance! The enemy may try you, but he will eventually stumble and fail if you remain immovable in your confession of faith.

Your stand of faith to declare, “The enemy cannot stop me” will pay off eventually.

You will rise higher and higher, while your adversary keeps stumbling.

The enemy’s influences will eventually diminish and shrink to significantly nothing. ☺

If you remain confident in God and declare your unswerving faith that you serve God that no one can stop, you will laugh in victory and have a superb testimony.

Jehovah God watches over his children, and he will take care of their business at all costs to glorify his name.

In this case, you are the child of God destined to prevail over your challenges.

I tell you my friend, whoever attempts your failure is wasting his or her time because you serve an unstoppable God!

M

ay God bless you!

Cheers,
James Taiwo

A Decision to Serve God in Holiness Every Time

A Decision to Serve God in Holiness Every Time

Holiness has always been God’s priority. Children of Israel sinned repeatedly against him with their unholy characters to the extent that they pressured him to allow terrible situations to befall them.

Isaiah, the mouthpiece of God prophesied,

 

“Here is a message about the Valley of Vision: What is the reason that all of you go up to the rooftops? The noisy city is full of raucous sounds; the town is filled with revelry. Your slain were not cut down by the sword;they did not die in battle.

All your leaders ran away together— they fled to a distant place; all your refugees were captured together—they were captured without a single arrow being shot.

So I say: “Don’t look at me! I am weeping bitterly. Don’t try to console me concerning the destruction of my defenseless people.” For the sovereign master, the Lord who commands armies, has planned a day of panic, defeat, and confusion. In the Valley of Vision people shout and cry out to the hill.” (Isaiah 22:1-5 NET).

 

 Lesson on A Decision to Serve God in Holiness

 

Sin is a terrible thing that has ever happened to mankind.

It caused the first man and first woman to fall from grace; it continues to build walls of separation between humanity and God.

Sin makes it difficult for God to perform his wonders in the lives of his people.

Since God is holy, he cannot deal with sin. Meanwhile, Satan, the enemy of righteousness continues to pester humans with all sorts of sinful activities that can irritate God.focus

 

However, God has provided an escape route for people who are trapped in sin.

Jehovah provided his Son Jesus Christ as a sure route of escape.

Any man or woman who believes in Jesus can overcome the craving of sin, and escape the penalty of sin. Christ the Son of God is the pathway to victory.

To enjoy the victory, a person must confess Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior. The scripture stated,

 

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10 NKJV)

 

Prayer on God’s Help to Serve Him in Holiness

sharpDear Lord, I have the desire to serve you in holiness; I want to meet your expectations and live a holy life.

Meanwhile, it is sometimes difficult to meet your holiness standard; therefore, I am asking for your special grace to measure up.

Empower me through your Holy Spirit to do what pleases you so that I can be qualified to enter your kingdom.

 

In addition, I understand that no one can make it to heaven without first confessing Jesus Christ as Lord.

Therefore, I confess your Son Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.

I will follow him today, and throughout my life – so help me God. Amen.
