THE WAY OF THE CROSS VII

Jesus is still looking for fruits. Remember what he did to the fruitless fig tree. Can you find any fruit of the Holy Spirit in a lion? No! Can you find any of the fruit of the Holy Spirit in an eagle? No! So, why become a lion? Why become an eagle? Let’s not celebrate what God calls abomination.

How did Jesus describe the Laodicean Church? “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eye with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” (Rev. 3:15-19).

What brought the Church to this level? The prosperity message! If you give, you will get but you don’t need to be saved to get because you gave. It is a law that works for both believers and unbelievers alike. Gen. 8:22, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” It is a very dangerous theology. The Bible is very clear – by their fruits you shall know them (Matt 7:16). Whenever you are confused, do a fruit test!

Take Note:

  • If you are attending a Church where the truth of God’s word is not being forcefully emphasized, you are in a wrong place.
  • If you are attending a Church where sin is not preached against with vigour, with aggression in this end time, you are in a wrong place.
  • If you are attending a Church where the measure of success is in the beauty and size of the Cathedral and where they teach you to give before teaching you how to be a worshipper, you have missed it.
  • If you are attending a place where the second coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and right living are not being emphasized, you are probably in a wrong place.
  • If you are attending a place where everything has been reduced to money, run! The only place where you need money is here. Nobody can take a dime out of this world.
