EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TEXT: JEREMIAH 23:1-6
KEY VERSE: Jeremiah 23:1 “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.”
Some pastors due to inordinate ambition for fame, riches and power seek for anointing from corrupt ones who will just blow air, and everyone will be falling in the congregation and they will be shouting great man of God. They carry demons to go and preach with or they preach on the inspiration of the devil.
Go and turn them from the power of Satan unto God. God is able to keep them. God is able to save them. God is able to grant the desire of their hearts. That they will obtain forgiveness of sin because all those things they are doing in that religion; their sins are still upon them.
All those seeds they are sowing to the man of God; their sins are still upon them. All the fasting you see them doing; 21 days fasting, 7 days dry, 70 days, is going nowhere. Jesus is crying daily. Their sins are upon them. They fast from day 1 to day 70 but sins are still in their lives. What have they gained from it? The Bible says, since I was born, I have never heard that God answers the prayers of a sinner.
The devil responds to these prayers of course. Darkness has covered the church. The devil is the one answering their prayers. That is why their prayers are breaking curses, breaking yokes but can never break sin. They never talk about how to break from sin. Immorality is still there. Then how can you break from your habit?
They fast and are taking glory in fasting and not in righteousness. So, we should go and bring them to God that they might know the gospel of truth and obtain the forgiveness of sin. The Catholic priest will seat down and be smoking, and people will be coming to tell him the sins they have committed. He is smoking and at the same time forgiving sin!
Yet we are watching these evils going on in the church. Do you know that human souls are valuable to God? They are like you. What if you are the one to go to hell? Should you allow somebody else to go to hell? That is why the Lord is telling you to go and bring them out from denominational darkness for the forgiveness of sin through Jesus Christ and so they can receive an inheritance among them that are sanctified by faith.
This gospel of sanctification to believers must be preached to them. Their sins have been forgiven but for higher life of holiness, commitment and purity; sanctification is required of them. They need sanctification so that they may have an inheritance else they cannot go to heaven. Christianity without holiness does not end up in Heaven. It ends up in hell fire.
Thought for the day: Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord
Song For the day: What is the hope you have? The kingdom of God…..
Bible Reading for the Day: Amos 7-9; Revelation 7
