TEXT: Revelation 3:17-18
KEY VERSE: Revelation - 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
The counsel is, “Buy of me white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear.” The people see you in sin, are you not blaspheming this Gospel? Are you not inviting shame in your life? When you look at the life of your pastor, does he pass for a true Christian? Is he practicing righteousness? Does he know Jesus? Is it not business that goes on between the two of you there? That is why the Lord is saying that you too are naked because you are not hearing the Word that will change you. Jesus is saying, get from Me righteousness, ask Me for real salvation and I will get you born again.
Then ask Me to sanctify your heart and make you thoroughly clean, and I will do it. The Lord also said, “Put eye-salve on your eyes to enable you to see.” What is the Lord talking about? He is saying, “Get spiritual insight of the Word of God. Know it by revelation. Jesus asked, whom men said He was and His disciples replied that some say He was John the Baptist, some say He was Elias, some say He was one of the prophets. Jesus further asked, “But whom do you say I am?” Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God,” and Jesus told him that only by revelation did he know that.
If you are in the choir and you have not gotten this revelation, then you will be engaging in masturbation or lesbianism. However, you will continue to minister in carnality. You will be doing your Christian service in the flesh because the “Revelation” Gospel has not been understood by you. My Father will give you His revelation when you become serious about Christianity.
When you cry out and say, “O Lord, I cannot be a pretender anymore,” then your eyes will open deep inside you. Your heart will understand righteousness. The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the One that makes appearances and visitations to people to give scriptural insight by revelation. But if you say you don’t want to believe, then you will die in your sin. May this not be your portion in Jesus name.
Thought for the day: Hypocrites have no place with God.
Song for the day: You must be holy…….
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 145-147; 1 Corinthians 11:1-15
