TEXT: MATTHEW 13:24-30
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Key verse: Matthew 13: 25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”
Pastors do not preach against this because they already failed from the beginning. It started when women began to split their skirts so that as they moved their thighs were exposed. They climbed the pulpit area to minister dressed like that and the pastors did not say anything, not knowing that it was from the devil to destroy people’s hearts. Instead of rejecting it, they were managing. “Why not remove your eyes? Who asked you to look there?” So, they kept on managing. At first, they tore it at the back but when they had trained enough people and gathered some converts, they wanted to increase the converts, so they tore it in the front.
You could see these women coming to church with openings into their bodies, but the pastors did not talk because pastors’ wives were among them. They said nothing until information came from the marine world that they should tear it in a way that people should no longer be struggling to gaze through. It became a mini skirt. Still, they did not preach against it although some strong churches withstood them as they began to tear their skirts. I do not allow sisters who dress badly to ask questions in programs; not to embarrass them but to show importance of godly dressing as part of the message of holiness and to know that decency must be established.
With that they will know that we are not joking because the message is made practical. If they had done like that in the churches this ungodly dressing would have died but they ignored it. Then they reduced the mini skirt further and made it so tight that when a woman sits down, she must force her legs together or cover partially with handkerchief. They have now moved on to trousers. They first used bogus trousers because Satan is very subtle. Nobody talked against it; rather he raised up preachers to promote it; “Ah! What is wrong? Does God bother about your dressing? God only looks at the heart.” They argued that they were female trousers and that trousers were for women originally.
Thought for the day: Be sober and vigilant because of our adversary, the devil.
Song for the day: Hold the fort, for I Am coming, Jesus signals still…
Bible reading for the day: Jeremiah 17-19; 1Timothy 6.
