Love one another
I learnt recently that a life style that eliminates hurt /harm to ones self or others banish fear and create love, peace and contentment within us and in those around us.
The positive energy resulting from this loving acceptance and peaceful coexistence, enables success in all areas of our lives..
Hurt and hate create a negative energy of fear which destroys love, produce torment and can eventually kill.
Free and Direct access to God
It is no news to state that organised religion of which the Christian church is one has become an obstruction to oneness with God. The church has become a wall of partition preventing believers from hearing directly from God and being one with themselves.
Much like materialism and consumerism, ruling gods of today’s empty world, the church has created its own gods of prosperity, fame and power. Church leaders/founders have made themselves deities and church members aspire to become as power as their leaders because, they have been taught that prosperity and easy life are signs of holiness.
No excuse people, we know from the bible that these practices are not peculiar to our generation, to be fore warned is to forearmed. Everyone’s relationship with God is personal and direct, our peace comes from knowing this. No other human or spirit is needed to maintain our access to God in any circumstance because Jesus Christ has secured our access once and for all on the cross at Calvary. Ephesian 2;13-14, 18-20.
If any man lack wisdom or is confused, he can go directly to God in prayer for guidance and strength for the way.James 1:5-8
Then why church? we are commanded also to fellowship with one another, to encourage, strengthen and help ourselves, bearing in mind that we are fellow citizens with the saints, no one is greater than the other irrespective of the work God has assigned them to do in the church, the leader is not necessarily more spiritual than the members of the congregation.
Believers are the cause of problems in organised religion, through faithlessness, laziness with studying God’s word and praying by themselves, Christians have given their power to greedy individuals who are doing business in the name of church. these individuals preach false religion, brain wash followers, use members to achieve their personal goals which ultimately is the devils mission – deception and destruction of mankind.
Like the Berean Christians we must receive the word with all readiness of mind, and search the scriptures daily, whether these things were so ( Acts 17:11). No body loves you more than you love yourself.
The ungodly (unbelievers) are people who walk according to
- The course of this world
- The prince of the power of the air
- The spirit that now walketh in the children of disobedience.
BEWARE of people who go to church, call themselves christian and walk as unbelievers, because they are controlled by the rulers of darkness of this world. these so-called Christians are perpetuating spiritual wickedness (quality of being evil by nature and practice) and their lives demonstrate disobedience to the word of God.
To be warned is to be armed. we are to be discerning ( not judgmental), wise as serpents. and innocents as doves.
Has salvation/justification earned through faith in the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross made Christianity a cheesy, entertaining religion of automatic entitlement to personal desires? No *1.
Christianity is not mainly entertainment, praise and worship services in the name of feeling good or reaching out to other (these are necessary too) but, we need to be transformed by the renewing of our mind after our initial encounter with God *2, by fervently studying the word, praying and representing our saviour in words, thoughts and deeds. The word of God is powerful, tearing asunder the hearts of men, transforming souls *3. He puts in us both to will and do his good pleasure *4. We only need to submit to the Holy Spirit within us.
The letter below may be a simple act of love but, anything done in the name of our Lord is lifting him up in worship.
