Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. Isaiah 55:7
God is a merciful God. He is full of love and compassion, and He also loves justice. God’s love and mercy does not mean that He will watch injustice, wickedness and violence happen to innocent people, and He will do nothing. His mercy is not an invitation for all to live as they please, including believers – that is error.
Men will reap what they sow, so today should be your day of repentance and serious thought. Do not postpone your day of repentance because you do not know the future.
Repentance is the right way to embrace God’s love, mercy and forgiveness. The best things in life are free. Forgiveness is free – God freely pardons.
According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. (1 Peter 1:3 – 1:4 ESV)
To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:5-6 NKJV)
Jesus the son of God who died and washed us from our sins is worthy of praise, adoration, glory, dominion and thanksgiving. He deserves our honor and respect.
He sacrificed Himself and willingly gave up His life to set us free. He is the lamb and the perfect sacrifice. He is the first and the last – the morning star. He shines brighter than the heavens in glory and wonder. His power is beyond understanding and His beauty is dazzling. Our great and mighty savior is a precious and rare gem. He is the ultimate prize that we must pursue because under His canopy and presence life reigns supreme.
May Jesus and God’s will be our only and final quest and desire. He is worthy of our love and devotion. Thank you Jesus for your great mercy and salvation.
This Scripture reminds us that we must bless those who revile us. This is a very difficult thing especially for the natural man because man instinctively protects himself by defense and revenge. However, God is actually telling us to walk in the Spirit and be different from the flesh and the natural man. We must pray and leave all our cares and worries at the feet of God, the just, supreme and sovereign ruler who administers justice to all.
We are also reminded that we must endure persecutions. Christ and Paul were persecuted and we are not greater than them. The only thing we should imitate is their attitudes during times of persecution. Were they bitter and defeated or did they pray and trust in God? They never lost focus but put their faith and reliance on God who called them and sent them. They also prayed. God also called us to be blameless like Jesus and Paul – it is very possible.
We are also instructed to love our enemies. Some people have openly criticized this law but they are short of wisdom. God will not be fooled or mocked. All we should concern ourselves with is being pure, blameless and holy. Those who want to keep being evil should keep being evil but that must not bother us or make us bitter.
When He avenges blood, He remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the humble. (Psalm 9:12 NKJV)
He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still. revelations 22:11
There is a good way, and there is a perfect way. Christ and Steven prayed for their killers to be forgiven. Some other Scriptures show where we are asked to pray for vengeance against our enemies. None is bad just that one is a higher way – the perfect way.
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of my adversary. Luke 18:3
Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done. 2 Timothy 4:14
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12: 17-21
Evil doers might think that forgiveness is a license for them to go wild and untamed in their quest for evil and in perpetuating evil but that is foolishness. God is a righteous judge and He will always administer judgement starting from the Church because judgement begins in the house of God.
The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.” Matthew 26:24
Jesus prayed for those who killed Him to be forgiven but He was aware that those unrepentant ones among them would be judged and the repentant ones would be forgiven. He is the law and the word of God and knows all. Judas was unrepentant and was judged. Peter denied him out of fear but he was not among those that killed him. Peter wept bitterly in regret and went on to do great exploits for God as the chief Apostle. To err is human and to forgive is divine. God is mercy and love and loves to forgive however, man must repent, renounce and forsake sin.
The way of Jesus is the higher way because He loved His enemies and prayed for them to be forgiven. There was no bitterness, malice or evil in Him towards His enemies.
Judas was forgiven by Jesus but He bore His judgement. So we can see that one thing is constant. Unrepentant evil doers never go unpunished whether you bless them or pray for their punishment. One thing is sure – If they do not repent, they will be judged. The law must stand.
I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is troubling you will bear the judgment, whoever he may be. Galatians 5:10
So the higher way is better because, you will not have bitterness or hatred in your heart and at the same time, your enemies will still be punished if they do not repent but if they repent, they will not be punished. So the only constant thing here is the word of God and the law – flee all appearances of evil. On the other hand, praying for judgement against your enemies does not mean that you hate them or are bitter against them – you are simply invoking the law.
God Himself is not doing evil when He judges, rather He is being righteous in judgement and simply upholding His holy and righteous law of love. When you pray for judgement you are also not doing evil because God who will judge is not doing evil when He judges. You are not trying to get God to do evil but you are simply pleading for God’s justice.
I know, O LORD, that Your judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. Psalm 119:75
It is good for me that I have been afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes. (Psalm 119:71 NKJV)
Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight – That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge. (Psalm 51:4 NKJV)
There a spiritual justice system just as there is a physical justice system. Is the person who is taking her child’s murderer to court for judgement doing evil or trying to get the judge to do evil? No – she is simply invoking the law and asking for justice. The judge is not evil and blaming the victim or the judge is evil and demonic. Some people blame God the pure and just spiritual judge and some people blame the spiritual victims who are pleading for spiritual justice.
The same people never blame physical, earthly judges and the physical victims rather, they praise and applaud them. They never blame the physical justice system but are quick to blame, condemn and accuse God and the spiritual justice system of evil when God judges. They also blame the spiritual victims asking for judgement. Do you see the hypocrisy of it all? They do this because they love evil and do not want to repent. Mercy triumphs over justice but the unrepentant in evil will experience judgement including hell, the lake of fire and the second death if they refuse the mercy of God by not repenting.
There is already a spiritual and physical law that says “man must not kill man or do evil to man and harm others” and that law must be respected. We must not allow ourselves to be confused and be denied of our birthrights. The widow who prayed to God to avenge her of her adversaries in Luke 18:3 was described as pleading for her rights. Jesus Himself gave that example. He loves justice and hates oppression and wickedness especially against the weak and poor. The woman in the story was described as a widow.
Hatred or bitterness is when you start revenging and taking the law into your hands and wishing them evil. Never wish anyone evil. Anything you do outside God’s justice system is evil and any wish or desire outside God’s justice system is evil.
Some people pray for the defeat of their enemies without wishing them evil just like David did with Saul and some people pray for defeat of enemies and at the same time wish them evil and hate them. The latter is evil. David never stopped loving Saul. The truth is that either way, God will defeat your enemies if you focus on being filled with the glory of God and being blameless like Jesus. Either you pray for forgiveness of enemies or defeat of enemies, none is is bad, so be led by the Spirit but do not hate them or be bitter towards them.
When you go to God to plead for judgment, God himself will assess how to deal with the situation. He is long-suffering and patient and will deploy His mercy first, if your enemy repents, good for him but if he does not repent, God will administer judgement just like in the case of David and Saul and in the case of Pharaoh and the Israelites.
Note that David loved Saul and Jonathan too much and never wished them evil. However, he prayed for his enemies to be defeated. At the end of the day, God executed judgement on Saul and Jonathan and David wept for Saul the way that a son weeps for his father. He loved Saul but had to be free to fulfill his destiny. Saul wanted him dead at any cost even at the cost of his own life.
Do not be bitter with your enemies or be vengeful. Love and and never hate them. Pray for them and bless them and allow the law to run its course. Also, pray for any enemy who wants you dead or who is opposing your destiny to be defeated.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, (Ephesians 1:3 NKJV)
He gave us life, love, forgiveness and eternal blessings. We were once sinners, lost in the world without hope and stumbling around in the dark. God knew from the beginning of time that we would need grace and forgiveness and He gave us grace, mercy, love and forgiveness. He sent His only son to die in our place and He purchased our redemption and delivered us.
But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. 2 Peter 1:9
As redeemed, sanctified children we are free from past errors, mistakes and sins. Death, hell and the grave have been defeated and we have life. Confessed, forsaken sins no longer have power over us.
The only sin that has power over a redeemed child of God is active sins that have not been forsaken and discarded. Praise God there is hope for the hopeless. All we need to do is divorce any active sins that are openings doors of judgement and death into our lives.
And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11
For all the brethren struggling with afflictions inherited from the womb or suffering for sins they committed when they were in the world or even sins committed as a believer which has been renounced and forsaken there is a good news. The good news is that, that sin has been destroyed by the blood of Jesus and has no legal power over us..
All we need to do is to keep praying with faith, thanksgiving, praise, worship, and persistence until God uses His mighty power to enforce that freedom and deliverance.
The word of God is superior to all the forces of nature because everything was created through the word of God – when Jesus says yes, no one can say no and His word is yes and Amen. The word of God says we are free, cleansed, washed, sanctified, justified, redeemed and delivered. Praise God!
When vileness is exalted among the sons of men (Psalm 12:8 NKJV)
Vileness With Focus On Sexual Immorality
Humans exalt vileness. Yes, they do and I will tell you how. When humans defend sin and perversion, they are exalting vileness. Men are the ones that make excuses for fornication, adultery and homosexuality. What is the meaning of all this? I really don’t know.
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie (Revelation 22:14 – 22:15 NKJV)
A minister I once knew said to me, ‘fornication is not a sin and is not bad, God can forgive Evangelists anything because of their high calling.’ I shuddered. That is one big lie. I examined his life and found out he lived what he believed and would always make excuses for fornication.
That is the same way that adulterers and homosexuals make excuses for what they practice. Some non homosexuals even make excuses for them and campaign on their behalf but the word of God advises us not to share in the sins of others. We must never make excuses for our sins and the sins of others.
We must not encourage ourselves in our sins and we must not encourage others to keep on sinning, rather it is our obligation to pray for ourselves and others to repent and turn away from sin. That is love. Love is when you know that a certain lifestyle can attract judgement and harm and you enlighten people to desist from actions capable of attracting the judgement of God into their lives. The worst judgement is hell – we must help people escape hell not push people into hell.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Mathew 10:28
If you love the fornicators, adulterers and homosexuals then pray for them. With God, nothing is impossibly. I know for a fact that some homosexuals are victims who were unwittingly sacrificed on the alter of life. They need prayers not encouragement to persist in an abnormal lifestyle. Homosexuality is also some sort of judgement for idol worship, God rejection and refusing to retain knowledge of God.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:21-32
People can disagree with me for saying some of the homosexuals were scarified and get angry but I speak the truth as a an Apostle, prophet, evangelist, and teacher of the good news. The Lord has shown me deep mysteries and shown me the operations of several kingdoms and there are some I cannot even share. Life is a mystery and life is spiritual – if you look at life from the physical perspective without fear of God, you are not wise. James says we must ask for wisdom if we lack wisdom.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. Psalm 111:10
Sin is deeper than we think – it is spiritual. Sinners including homosexuals are victims and slaves in bondage and must be prayed for in love but never encouraged. The unbelievers are permanent slaves while Christians are temporary slaves. When you go out there and march for gay rights as a Christian you are a partaker of something that is not your business. Love everyone and pray for everyone but don’t share in the sins of others. Pray to God for supply of more grace to heal people from every form of sin. Sin is sin and is a perversion of nature and creation.
Very soon some so called Christians will go out there and march for adultery right and fornication right. Mind your own business and pray. Do not march for anything that is against the word of God. When you do that, you are marching against Christ the stone and if Christ decides to fall on you, you won’t be able to bear His weight.
As it is written:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense,
And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame (Romans 9:33 NKJV)
“And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” (Matthew 21:44 NKJV)
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
’The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing,
And it is marvellous in our eyes’ ? (Matthew 21:42 NKJV)
We Christians must stop giving God bad name by our actions. We must decide whom to follow and stop being in between and lukewarm.
Sin is not the problem, pride and attitude is the problem. There is no sin that God does not forgive. We must not claim to know more that God. If God calls something a sin, we must accept it and agree with that word. Humility is agreements with the truth. When we oppose what he has said out of stubbornness and pride, that is where the real problem lies.
Just as Eve believed that God lied to her and believed the devil, when we reject what God has said concerning homosexuality and sin we become opposers, criticisers and judges of God – that is the real problem. We become haters of the word of God and God.
Even if at one time we judged Christ according to human standards, we no longer do so. 2 Corinthians 5:16
The blood of Jesus already set us free, it is our pride and stubbornness that destroys us not the sin. Why? If we admit and agree that we sinned or that fornication, adultery and homosexuality are sins, and sincerely plead with God for help and grace in humility, God is so loving, kind and gracious that He embraces us with extraordinary love. It is the hatred of the word of God that grieves God. Hatred of the word of God is hatred of Jesus.
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. Revelation 19:13
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.” James 4:6
When we oppose and contradict the word of God, we are dragging and contesting superiority with God, and that is the real problem.
Our mindset is what grieves God. Brethren, if you claim to be a Christian and a lover of Christ – the word of God, do not defend any thing that has been labelled a sin by the word of God even lying and gossiping that look like they are little compared to murder. Sin is sin and must be denounced and rejected publicly and vigorously.
Sin is nothing and less than nothing – we must look at sin as inferior to the blood of Jesus. When we put sin in its proper place, the desire and temptation will die.
If I fall into any kind of sin, I don’t pamper that sin or make excuses for it. I admit it before God, ask for forgiveness and ask for grace to completely eradicate it from my life – that is what God expects. Ultimately, we must get to a place of maturity where sin becomes alien to us. That is God’s expectation and desire. He hates lukewarmness and halfhearted devotion.
So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16
The urge for any sin can die, by the grace of God and the blood of Jesus, if we decide to let go of that urge and not glorify the urge or evil desire. All God wants is admission, repentance and humility.
Only acknowledge your guilt– you have rebelled against the LORD your God, you have scattered your favours to foreign gods under every spreading tree, and have not obeyed me,'” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 3:33
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Are you ashamed of your state and sin, run to Jesus. He understands every struggle with homosexuality, fornication and adultery. He is waiting with love and arms opened wide to hug you and heal your broken heart. Yes, it is broken heartedness that leads to evil desires. Once He fills you up, and you feel complete and whole, you won’t have those desires again.
Recently the Lord appeared to me and my white garment was stained. I had not spent the usual number of hours that he commanded me to spend each day with Him because of certain events beyond my control that needed my attention.
In the vision I talked with Him and told him I love him. I was a bit far from Him and He said, ‘my love come to me.’ I went closer and He looked so handsome and I said, ‘Daddy! My father, please I need you, don’t deny me yourself because I can’t live without you. Come upon me, ‘ He did, and I started speaking in tongues as I exclaimed, ‘you are handsome, so handsome! You are the most handsome man I have ever seen and I don’t look good.’ I bent my head in shame and I could not look Him in the face. He put his palm under my chin to raise it up so I could look at Him. ‘I understand weakness,’ He said tenderly and lovingly with great compassion. Then I prayed, ‘please give me the me the grace to be loyal to you always.’ I also made some specific requests concerning my assignment and ministry and I finished with , ‘ I love you.’
I came out of the vision and His words kept on ringing and echoing in my mind. He understands weakness. He was so loving and so compassionate that I was energised and invigorated to come out of my weakness. I went back to my normal routine of spending hours in His presence and my garment became white again.
The Lord commanded me to denounce sin everywhere so it is my obligation before God to denounce idolatry, fornication, adultery, homosexuality and every other sin in line with that command. I do it out of love for humanity and man. I believe that every Christian owes it to Christ who saved them to denounce sin and not pamper sin.
If we do that, combined with prayer, the captives of the mighty will be delivered and the world will be a better place with less evil and less divine judgement.
The Lord Himself understands weakness and our struggles with fornication, adultery and homosexuality. He was tempted too but He did not sin. We must fight off sin because our great compassionate big Daddy is here to help us win the battle against sin. We must not hug and pamper any sin including homosexuality.
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. Hebrews 12:4
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5 NKJV)
A son of sin is the one who believes in gay rights, loves the sin and approves of it without any desire to repent or ask for help. The slave is the one who struggles with sin including homosexuality and is ashamed. The slave repents and asks for help while the son sees nothing wrong with it.
A son of sin campaigns for gay rights and spits at the face of Christ. The son is the one who hates Christians and anyone who dares to tell him to change his lifestyle. The slave will go to heaven through the blood of Jesus because of his humility and the son will go to hell because of his pride. Christians who commit sin and are remorseful will be saved.
Christians who are trapped in sin and seeking God will be saved even by the destruction of the same flesh that is drawing them into destruction. Christians who persist in sins are handed over to the devil for the destruction of the flesh so that they can be saved in the day of the Lord. Judgement also begins in the house of God and that judgement should lead to godly sorrow.
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgement in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,ab so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 5: 1-5
Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme. 1 Timothy 1:18-20
For it is time for judgement to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10
Vileness must never be exalted by the sons of men – it is pathetic and sad when men exalt and pamper vileness. It is simply ugly and profound in its ugliness and it is a road to nowhere.
