EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

Matthew 10: 32-42
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
A man sent a text to me, accusing Holiness Revival Movement of evil doing because his second wife has separated from him. I said, “Bless God! Doctrine of truth is working somewhere. I am receiving proper report now!” That is the other side of the coin. When you see accusations, do not be moved or carried away and believe the people without investigating it. Is it not the Bible that tells us that there are two sides to a matter?
The word of God is a double-edged sword. Is it not Jesus that said there shall be trial, temptation, petition, complain, even with Jesus Himself? Is a servant greater than his Master? We are servants to Jesus doing the same work in Holiness Movement and we do cause the same pain to men, through the gospel truth we preach. So, it is normal to be hated by people.
A man has been married to his wife but that is his second wife. You told the woman that, as a second wife you cannot make it to heaven. If you really love that man, then leave his house.” The woman's eyes opened, and she says, “Oh! I am leaving the wrong marriage right away!” The husband says, “No, you cannot leave me. Who told you this?” The woman says, “Since I came to HOREMOW my eyes opened to the biblical truth concerning this matter.
Thank God I had not died and gone to hell.” Will the man be writing letter of appreciation to HOREMOW? The man may even report HOREMOW to the government saying, “What are you doing? HOREMOW has come into the country and they are separating husband and wives! They are making second and third wives to leave their husbands. What are you doing about it?
People are losing their wives!” These, are people that were using earrings, painting their bodies, wearing trousers, and using things that are worldly but have now repented and renounced them.
Their husbands are protesting and saying that they love their wives to use them. Yet these days, some women with Jezebel dressing, paintings, trousers, and all other worldly dressing, carried their Bibles and went out for evangelism to preach Jesus.
Maybe some serious Holiness Movement members or born again, sanctified and Spirit-filled Christians saw them and perceived that this one preaching Jesus needs help for what they are wearing will hinder them from going to heaven.
It is our duty to preach to such Jezebel preachers as led by the Spirit, whether they like it or not.
Thought for the day:
A servant is not more than his Master
Song for the day:
I want to be like Daniel, to follow Jesus Christ
Bible reading for the day:
1 Chronicles 6-7; John 8:21-36
