FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2019
KEY VERSE: 1Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is
laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Our root in Holiness Revival Movement is deep to Deeper Life Bible Church. That is where I, Pastor Paul Rika, the International Director of this movement cut my teeth as a preacher and teacher of the word of truth, righteousness and holiness.
I served in Deeper Life as a house leader, a zonal leader, a location pastor, a campus coordinator, a district coordinator, a region overseer, a state overseer, and a national overseer. I was well-schooled in all the teachings of Pastor W. F. Kumuyi.
I was given special grace to understand the scriptures very deeply. All our teachings in Holiness Revival Movement are not different from the doctrinal teachings in Deeper Life Bible Church. The only area of difference lies in the fact that we believe God is the God of revelation, but they don't believe in revelation.
If it be so, how can some people say I am preaching wrong doctrines? In which way is that? And concerning these revelations where we differ from Deeper Life, if you believe that revelations come from God and Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, why would you think he has stopped giving revelations to people in our day?
Did God not speak through prophet Joel that he will pour out His Spirit in the last days and revelations shall abound?
Why should you allow anybody to deceive you into believing that Pastor Rika is not well groomed by the Lord for this work?
If Deeper Life could “boast” that they have the truth, I think we in this movement have much more to “boast” about because we have all they have in biblical doctrine and additionally, divine revelations. With both at our disposal, we lack nothing for our doctrinal instruction, spiritual growth and edification.
We are experiencing Jesus more practically because Jesus makes Himself to come alive among us in revelations and prophesies, which are also scripturally proven to be true for the word says, “Despise not prophesying … prove all things and hold fast that which is good.”
We prove the prophesies, we prove the revelations and when we know they are from God, we hold fast to them. If this be so, why should you think that you are being deceived? In which way? Don't allow anybody to steal the treasure in your hand through craftiness.
Thought for the day: The foundation on which HOREMOW stands is sure and unmovable.
Song for the day: On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand……
Bible reading for the day: Proverbs 23-24;
2 Corinthians 5.
