2021/2022 OPERATION 18-18 DAY 1F (THE HEART OF THE MATTER)

DIFFERENT CONDITIONS OF THE HEART

2. Stony heart.
Matt. 13:20-21. “But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it. Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.” The Bible made it very clear that in the last days, wickedness will increase; men will be lovers of themselves more than lovers of God. Because of this heart condition, there is no room for the word of God to penetrate, the word cannot take root; they are there in the Church. Every Church is a mixed multitude of people; people who are not ready to receive the word, people who are not ready to grow. They have an attitude that blocks the word of God.

3. Thorny heart; the heart of thorns.
I believe that this is where we have greater concentration of people today. They receive the word, they can even quote the word of God to an extent but the thorns in the heart will rise up to choke the word out. What are these thorns?  Cares of the world, lust of the flesh, pride of life, lust of the eyes, the riches and pleasures of life and so on. This is why it is better to teach people character before teaching them prosperity. Sometimes error manifests in priority, sometimes, it is in the presentation and yet sometimes it is in emphasis. What comes first? The Bible says, seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness. What is uppermost in your heart? This is what matters most. What is your motive? Many people are looking for a God to use to get things and not a God to worship, or serve, not even a God to obey. When they obey, it is in order to get. This is broad way Christianity and it is being celebrated today. At the end of everything, the wisest man that ever lived, Solomon’s advice was, “fear God and keep his commandment for that is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring everything to judgment whether it be good or evil”. (Ecc 12:13). Be very careful. Anything that defiles and damns the soul cannot be of God.
