Never you use Church to cover your shortcomings. Don’t ever entrust your destiny into the hands of anyone who does not know God, it could be suicidal.
Brethren, the battle of the age rages on and no one is neutral, you are either for Christ or you are for the antichrist. Your thoughts, words, actions either further the kingdom of God or further the kingdom of darkness. There cannot be any vacuum in the realm of the spirit. Any time there is a vacuum, the kingdom of darkness intensifies their activities. Why? They want to take control. It is a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of the godless no matter their certification. Education cannot change a human beast into a human being, what it does is to produce a refined beast. The Adamic nature cannot be changed by any form of secular education.
THINGS THAT THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD WILL DO FOR YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL
- The knowledge of God will give you strength; inner strength that nothing else can give – it will give you strength of character. The knowledge of God will make you a consolidated person. Those that know their God shall be strong. You will become strong in the real sense of the word, you will have strength to do that which ordinarily you are incapable of doing. You will have supernatural empowerment to do the impossible, to say no when you should say no, to stand when others are dancing, to speak the truth and damn the consequence.
- Those that do know their God will have reverential fear of God. One of the ways to identify those who do not know their God is in their relationship with God. The knowledge of God will make you reverence him.
- Those that do know their God shall not only be strong, they shall be obedient. John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” If you know God, you will not disobey him. I always ask myself, if there is an instruction to be disobeyed, should it be the instruction of the One who spoke the world into existence? Should it be the instruction of the Omnipotent, the Omnipresent, the Omniscient? Does it make any sense?
- The knowledge of God will produce in you love for God. You can’t know God and be passive. You will naturally fall in love with God. It took me some time to realize that if we, preachers of the gospel, can actually bring people to love God, then, we have accomplished our task as Pastors and teachers of the word of God. If you love God, faith comes naturally. If you love God, you don’t need anyone to cajole you to give to the work of God. If you love God, holiness becomes easy, it will become part of your nature. Why? Because you will hate what God hates and love what God loves. If you love God, you will be a worshipper. Worship is placement of value. If you love God, you will not give him rejects, no, you will rather give him your life.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love for me. Grant me the grace to love you above anything else in my heart and to always give you my best, all the days of my life. In Jesus name, Amen.
