Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.
Do not allow yourself to be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine because of the teachings of some ministers with sugar-coated mouth or threatening revelation and false testimonies of ex-holiness members. I call them “ex” as you would call somebody an ex-governor or ex-president.
You might find such people contending with the truth and bringing you satanic revelations. They would say, “Have you heard the new thing happening in Holiness Movement?” They bring new revelations, for all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing (Acts 17:21).
There are people who spend their time hearing new things: “Do you know what is happening now?” But for you child of God, are you interested in such things? The Bible tells us, if you are interested in those things, to you that is interested, more shall be added, more of that type of news will come to you because you have shown interest, yet they are coming to damn your soul; so be careful so that these people do not carry you away to hell.
Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. You cannot remain a child after all these years, after all these learnings, after listening to all these messages, after reading all these books.
Would you now believe somebody that just came from nowhere and say tithe payment is not the will of God? Will you get excited saying, “Ah, that's wonderful?” If you do, that would mean that you have been paying your tithe reluctantly. It means you have all along been waiting for Satan to come and help you stop paying it.
That is why Satan sent his servant and you agreed with him saying, “Ah, this is true o, this is true!” If sinners who pay tithes to sinful pastors who misappropriate their money will be happy to hear such heresy from the messenger of Satan, will you also join them in saying it is true? Will you say this even with the knowledge you have acquired, with the truth you have known and the word of God that you can read clearly?
Thought for the day:
Buy the truth, don't sell it.
Song for the day:
I hold not the Rock, but the Rock holds me, The Rock holds me, The Rock..
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 62-64; Romans 1
