Holy Bible (KJV) 1.5

Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

The Scriptures cannot be broken. Fears are gripping hearts of many across the world. Visible amazing signs in the skies are seen across the world. There are shocking frequencies and magnitude of natural disasters across continents. Political as well as economic downturn and unrests are more manifest. The rallying base and dependable structural unit of the family is being battered under the silly guise of political correctness. Immorality is being celebrated in high and low quarters. There are wars and rumours of greater wars. Weapons of mass destruction are being assembled. Human migration is being handled with looseness, perverseness and heartlessness. Indeed men’s hearts are failing them for fears. As we pray, may the LORD have mercy, deliver us and uniquely deliver his chosen people Israel. May all of us, as children of God, saved through faith in the name of Jesus and cleansed by his precious blood, be preserved faithful and be found blameless and watching when our Saviour comes soon. The atmosphere is charged. Come, Lord Jesus.

Before Jesus returns, please, dear friends, call upon him before it is too late. Repent of your sins and turn to God. Make a U-turn to God. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13.

FLEE TO SAFETY

The following verses of the Bible are a few of many of such that are helpful in emphasising purity and sexual fidelity. We should empasise this more during these days of laxity and permissiveness, under the pretentious guise of political correctness.

1 Corinthians 6:20 – For you have been bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, both of which belong to God.

Ephesians 5:3 – But fornication, and all uncleaness, with covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as befitting and expected of saints.

Colossians 3:5 – Mortify (That is put to death and think and regard as dead) therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleaness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence and covetousness which is idolatry;
1 Corinthians 6: 18 – Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is outside the body, but he who commits fornication sinneth against his own body.             Joseph said to the wife of his master Portiphar, who persistently tempted him with sexual immorality: 

“There is no one greater in this house than I; neither has he kept anything from me except you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?” – Genesis 39: 9.

There is the need to stand our grounds and refuse to yield to the pressure of sin. You should avoid any pleasure that leads to sin. A minimum of five minutes of wrongful enjoyment of sexual intimacy would have led to an everlasting sorrow of loss and condemnation. When the evil woman persisted and tried to force herself physically upon Joseph, the young man released his clothe to her and fled from her presence. The clothe was used shortly after as an exhibit to bring false accusation of rape against Joseph. However, it was good that Joseph fled, leaving his clothe with her. Joseph was wrongly jailed. However, the truth prevailed eventually and in a miraculous turn of events, the divine giftings in the life of Joseph made a way for him. That led to Joseph’s vindication by the king of Egypt, Pharaoh. Joseph had interpreted dreams in the prison for two of Pharaoh’s senior officers who were temporarily jailed while being investigated for alleged offences. Accurately, in line with Joseph’s interpretation of their dreams, one, the King’s cup bearer was pardoned and restored to his office. The second officer, the butler, was found guilty and executed, just as Joseph interpreted  his dream. A time came that Pharaoh dreamt twice and nobody could interprete his dreams. The king was so much troubled that the restored cup bearer was forced to remember his experience with Joseph in the prison. Joseph was promptly cleaned up and ushered into the king’s presence. For interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams, Joseph was elevated from being a prisoner to become the Prime Minister of Egypt. It surely pays to uphold fidelity and integrity. It is important to resist sin. God rewarded him for his stand. Joseph did not stand up once, but he persisted in upholding fidelity and purity in the face of mounting pressure from the mistress of his boss. Ease and temporary pleasure of sin were not permitted to block his reasoning of the eternal blessing that godliness gives. He focussed on God. Each time Joseph resisted the evil woman, he acquired inward strength to fight future battles. When the pressure became too much, he fled, leaving his clothing. He fled in order to be able to fight another day. His fleeing was not an act of cowardice, but a wise military strategy. Staying on in front of the evil woman would have made him fall! He gained a new level of stability to fight the moral battle. In the same way, each ground or level of victory gained helps us to have future victories in life. There is a time to stand up to fight. There is a time to stand still and trust God to fight for you. When Joseph was jailed, he trusted God to fight for him. He stood still and looked up to God. There is a time to flee from sin, when the pressure becomes too much. Flee and replan. Do not become a foolish victim. The truth always prevails. Portiphar’s wife was ready to pollute her matrimonial bed at all costs; even with a slave! Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled, but whoremongers and adulterers God would judge. Hebrews 13:4. It is important for every man to have his own wife and every woman to have her own husband. 1 Corithians 7: 1-5. Grace be with you.

SING THE PSALMS

Psalms 108: 5, 2-3:
5. Be Thou be exalted O God above the heavens:/2ce. and Thy glory above all the earth/2ce (Sing 2ce).
2. Awake psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early.(Sing 2ce).

JESUS THE SON OF GOD IS COMING SOON

Jesus the Son of God is coming soon Prepare to meet him before it is too late to do so.
Jesus said in Rev 22:12
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward [is] with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

SHORT OLD STORY

The Gospel is true. Do we really hold it true? The story was told of a condemned notorious criminal in England, ready to die by hanging, many years ago. A clergy came near him for the customary final rites of prayers. Surprisingly the criminal preached a powerful message. I am paraphrasing his message thus: “If all of you Christians believe the Bible is true and that all the book teaches about heaven and hell is true. If you all truly believe that God sent Jesus as the remedy to rescue a criminal like me; then if I was in your shoes, I would not mind to walk on my knees, through broken bottles to warn every sinner in every city, town,village and corner of England.

That condemned criminal died, but he has left you and I a powerful and challenging message. Brother, sister, friend, son and daughter, what do you say to that? What next? 

The Gospel of Christ is compelling and urgent. May the compassion of Jesus and his marvelous love stir us up and compel us henceforth. May the power of the resurrection fill us up as we go out to share the love of our dead, buried, but risen Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

PRAYER TO BE SAVED

Pray this prayer to give your life to Jesus Christ:
Dear Father in Heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. Your Word says –Him that comes to me I will not cast out. (John 6: 37). So I know you won’t cast me out, but You take me in and I thank You for it.
You said in Your Word, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved “(Romans 10: 13). I am calling on Your Name, so I know that You have saved me now.
You also said “if you shall confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation ” (Romans 10: 9, 10).
I believe in my heart Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe that He was raised from the dead for my justification, and I confess Him now as my Lord.
Because Your Word says, …” with the heart man believeth unto righteousness….” And I do believe with my heart, I have now become the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5: 21)… And I am saved. Thank You Lord Jesus! Amen.
