Clarity is the main component in making critical decisions in life! Every choice that has to be made must come from a clear mind and a clean heart. Only God can give “clarity” on all things. It is always wise to ‘consult’ the creator for everything concerning life. Sin caused chaos in both the physical and the spiritual world! Since the beginning man is living his life in the “confusion zone!” Because the reason is simple, he is out of fusion with His Maker and Master! The good Lord has laid down all of life principles in His holy (wholesome) book! But many lazy people have neglected it and are living hazy lives! There is no clarity on anything in life so they just float on the waves of chance! Without clarity men not only lose their potential but lose their all! It is wise to come to the Lord of wisdom seeking clarity on all issues of life. Psalm 19:7 says, The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. God’s word is perfect and it helps everyone that comes seeking for understanding. Frequently go to the Lord and seek clarity from His word. You will experience peace, power and productivity.
False teachers are a threat to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. False teachers and false prophets are very dangerous that is why they are described as “ravenous wolves” in the Bible by our Lord Jesus Himself! Whenever Jesus issues a warning about anyone or anything we must take it to heart immediately. Both in the Old and the New Testaments there are many warnings about the accursed teachings and atrocities of the false teachers! God hates “falsehood” of any kind because He is the truth! Last days will see a tremendous rise of false teachers in many places to deceive many! The Bible says that they are the agents of the Devil!! They come in sheep’s clothing but inside they are cruel wolves whose only intention is the devour the sheep. Many Biblically illiterate and spiritually dumb people will “fall” for their manipulative tricks and gimmicks. They have no spiritual discernment hence they are misled easily by these religious charlatans! We must not hear them, we must not subscribe to their ministries, we must not have any fellowship with them in any form whatsoever! Get away from them and stay away from them for your own safety. Do not allow curiosity to carry you off into deception. Beware and listen to the Holy Spirit and obey the holy scriptures.
Gossip is a terrible sin. It is a sin against God and the body of Christ. Gossip not only tears down the person but also plants seeds of suspicion and despise in the mind of the hearer. Gossip spreads faster than cancer. Many by nature love to ‘gossip’ but would not accept it easily! They will try to cover it up under various disguises like “I am just showing concern, sharing for prayer, or trying to help” etc. In fact, they have no desire to help and never really tried to do so. Gossip is the sin of pride and arrogance. It is the disease of the soul! We gossip because we think we have the right to do so about others. We think we can back bite about others and harm their reputation and character. We think we are superior and capable enough to do it! But who gave us the right to gossip about another person? Who gave us the sanction to bad mouth another person in the church? God did not! The church leadership did not!! Then why are we bent upon doing such a heinous crime? Yes, You heard it right. Gossip is a crime because it is “character assassination!” It has devastating effect on the person and it can destroy the church! Gossip separates close friends Proverbs 16:28! Spirit filled believers will never gossip because they would not dare to grieve the Spirit of God and offend their Lord Jesus Christ. The devil is the father of gossip, false accusation, back biting and whispering evil about others. Shun his association, slay the sinful desire to gossip and stay away from those who love and live only to gossip! Don’t slip into the muck and mire of gossip!
The Bible is one of the best gifts of God to mankind! Having access to God’s word is a tremendous blessing to us. Many were denied access to it in the past and others were killed for possessing it. Men and women have paid dearly with their lives for the life giving book of God! For such the word of God was a treasure beyond measure! They longed to arrange their lives according to the holy writ. God miraculously put the Bible together and protected it for generations from all onslaughts of the enemies. The scriptures are our only security in this sin soaked world! Studying the Bible is a great experience because it brings transformation. When Bible study is done systematically, it yields much fruit. Do you value the word of God? Can you live without it? Read what is written about the Bible by someone who knew it thoroughly!
“THIS BOOK contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveller’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here paradise is restored, heaven opened and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand object, our good is its design and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be opened in the judgement, and will be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.” — Anonymous.
Grumbling, mumbling, jumbling and stumbling christians are many! But humbling and God honouring disciples are few. Reason is simple, lack of godliness! Just as a tree without fruit, just as a well without water, just as a cloud without rain, just as a skeleton without flesh and blood are people who are without godliness. Godliness is not easy! The Bible says we must take the time and the trouble to “train” ourselves unto godliness 1 Timothy 4:7! Did you hear the word “train?” Godliness is a product of training, spiritual exercise and hard work. We “train” ourselves for so many things. We pay heavily for the training, we put all our energy to be trained well, we give all of our time to get the best training! But we do not think at all about the “training in righteousness” which leads to true godliness! Is it not like being “pennywise and pound foolish?” We think we are smart but we are not. Smartness or wisdom is seen in the right choices and making life fruitful in God’s sight. Think about your self, your life. What pains are you taking to train yourself to be godly in a Biblical way? How much time are you spending in Holy Spirit inspired spiritual exercises? How much money are you spending for the upliftment of your spirit in Christ? Think about it seriously because it really matters!
The heart of God is beautiful. It is awesome and beyond our clouded comprehension. God’s heart can love the whole world without leaving anyone out. His heart can love all of us equally without any stain of partiality. His heart is perfectly pure so when God loves His motives are selfless. God’s heart has the power to embrace the vilest of sinners, worst of wicked men and the lowest of the ungodly! His heart alone can absorb all our hatred, rebellion, arrogance, sinfulness and unrighteousness! God’s heart plans for our good and for our future. God’s heart desired us wretched sinners so much that He gave up His only holy Son Jesus for our sake! The greatness of God’s heart, the largeness of God’s heart and the depth of God’s heart is demonstrated in Christ’s suffering on the cross! God’s heart offers forgiveness, reconciliation and peace. Oh, beloved how greatly are you loved! Have you responded to this out of the world kind of unique and precious love of God? Have you come closer to the heart of God? If not your life is a waste, not worth living! Come hear, His heart is beating for you!! Begin your relationship with Him today and discover the glorious heart of God.
Sin is a fact of life! All men lie in sin and die in sin. Sin takes many shapes and appears in many forms. Sin’s strength is in its subtlety. It lures us and allures us with the promise of pleasure beyond measure but simply usurps all our God given treasure! Sin leaves us as paupers in the end. People argue against sin, try to down play it and totally deny its existence by giving alternative reasoning but it is sheer waste of time! God declared that all have sinned and that’s the truth! Sin closes our eyes to reality, corrupts our mind to sensibility and captivates our heart to carnality! Sin is missing the mark. Sin is disobedience to God. Sin is a violation of purpose. Sin is powerful in its domination and successful in its damnation of men’s souls! Only the Lord Jesus Christ can deliver men and women from sin’s earthly domination and eternal damnation! He is our only refuge, He is our only redeemer. Sin was crushed to death upon the body of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and He rose again as the eternal conqueror! Sin has no dominion over those that are living under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Who is reigning in your life? Sin or the Saviour?
