Hope your week is going well. I know mine is.
I’m still reeling from the whole being a writer on Bella Naija, Naija Stories and now, My church website. Thanks for all your comments and views. I see them all. The Bella Naija story has over 150 comments and the Naija post one has over 400 views!!! Thanks a lot people for all your encouraging words too. I am thankful. God bless you all. Muah!
Anyways, I was doing my usual browsing through/studying of the Bible and I found out something I thought I’d share: Being a lukewarm Christian is worse than being an outright sinner! *gasps*
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot”. Revelation 3:15
The time has come that we choose: God or devil, sin or righteousness, obedience or disobedience, light or darkness and invariably, heaven or hell. There is no in-between. There is no semi-hot hell or not-so-beautiful heaven with bronze floors that the lukewarm people go to.
Whilst watching Daddy GO on a programme called “Shout Hallelujah” (by the way, it is on 8.30-9.00pm every day on OHTV-199), I learned that: Temi, it’s better to go all out for Christ or all out for the devil. Nothing should be done with mediocrity.Our God is an excellent God. He is not average. He loathes average. The devil, on the other hand, can ‘manage’. Daddy GO said, if you want to be bad, please be very very very bad. So that when in hell, you can hi5 the devil and say: at least, I enjoyed myself.
But what a shame it will be if after all the prayer and fasting and long Choir Practices and abstaining from clubs, immorality and not drinking, not womanising with your friends, not doing credit card fraud no matter how broke you are despite all your “guys” doing it, all the tithes and offering, Jehovah says, I know ye not and “I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.” Or after all our soprano and alto and harmony, we hear, “Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols”. (Amos 5:21-23) That will not be our lot in Jesus’ name. We will know the Truth and heed the Truth.
Revelation 3:14-19 sometimes frightens me. Revelation 3:16 says, ‘So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth’. May we not be spued out of Christ’s mouth. Note that for the lukewarm Christian to be spat out of Jesus’ mouth, he was once inside. He got into the mouth in the first place. But then, he lost his zeal. He lost his vision. He perished. John 3:16-God loves us dearly. Revelation 3:16-He will separate the goats from the sheep and cast the goats to eternal damnation. Even the mixed-breed sheepish goat or goatish sheep will be condemned.
Let he that has ears hear.
This earth is just a passing phase. Heaven is our final destination. We will get there in Jesus’ name. We will not be sidetracked. In heaven, we will all rush to each other and hug ourselves. Not one of us will be missing. Then we will rush up to God and confirm about those things we never quite understood such as the Hebrew women, the difference between trial and temptation and then sing Him a special special number maybe “Only You are Holy” by Donnie McClurkin #justsaying.
NB: Please guys pray for me as I know that he that knoweth the truth and does it not, to him is sin. Loads more is expected of they that tell of the Word. The great news is that we are not left alone in this race. We have a Helper in the Holy Spirit!
That’s all folks (for now)
