DEFECTORS

DEFECTORS:
Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of ..You are supposed to check on what pastors preach to you from the pulpit (Acts 17:11). Is it accurate? Is it the Word? This will help you to know whether to remain loyal to them or not. You are also supposed to compare what they are preaching now to what they used to preach. This is because some start out with Bible-based preaching and end up with all sorts of weird doctrines. When it is not the Word of God anymore, you are supposed to "defect from the defector". Some ministers have drifted off from the mainstream of Bible doctrines into extreme versions of some fundamental truths. There are great truths about the Holy Spirit, prayer, prosperity, etc. But all of these can be perverted and misinterpreted. Let's stay with the mainstream. We have to analyze the type of messages that our man of God gives us. We are supposed to preach the Word of God and not our opinions. You see, there is a difference between your opinion and the Word of God. Do not just accept what anybody says because of who he is. Some preachers are clever with words. The Bible says they sway the hearts of the simple with their nice-sounding maxims. Anything that you say must balance up with the written Word, or else it is unacceptable.Jesus is revealed as the word of God made flesh on (John 1:14) & also the Christian is born of the word; we are offspring of the word. God gave birth to us through His word, as Jesus came forth of the word, we also are given birth to in the realm of the spirit to be like Him through the word. The Apostle Peter put it this way on (1Peter  1:23), "Being born of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth & abide the for ever". So u see as a Christian, your life is the life of the word. This happens when u receive the word of God & the gospel of Christ's salvation into your heart to be born again. Can u now see that u are not an ordinary person. Christ has taken up His abode in u, & u have become one with Him. No wonder the Bible says, u are partakers of divine nature   (2Cor 1:4); as Jesus is the word made flesh, even u also are offspring of the word, because u are born of the word. In order to grow mature in this Christian life, u need more of God's word. By studying, u also increases your faith; because the Bible says that faith comes by hearing, hearing word of God (Rom 10:17). Increase your faith today by studying more of God's word!

 ASK THOSE WHO SAW THE REVIVAL OF 1930 AND 1980s, THEY WILL TELL YOU WHY WE ARE CRYING OVER THIS "FIRE LESS NESS" WE ARE SEEING IN OUR GENERATION OF BELIEVERS: John Knox prayed: "Lord, Give me Scotland or I die"... St Patrick, a rugged believer that Brought even dead animals and trees back to life prayed: "God, Give me souls or give me nothing else".... Brethren during the Hebrides revival prayed:" Lord, If you will not use us, please, kill us"... The brethren from England who brought the Fire from Azusa Street revival gathered everyday under the terrible cold. Their only prayer topic was: "Lord, give us men that will spread Your Fire in the streets of England". During the Indonesia Revival, those hungry hearts were seen praying day and night: "Lord, The harvest is ripe... If it pleases You, please use us". One prayer that was common during the days of William Seymour was: "Lord, this is another day that hell must lose men and women. Please, we are here use us". Paul said:" Woe is me if I preach not the gospel" Rachel said to her husband, Jacob: "Give me children or I die" But unfortunately, our churches are filled today with people who are not ashamed of spiritual barrenness. We are asking "God give me money. God give me spouse.God give me visa". Where do we see believers again that will be praying and fasting, and when you listen to them, you will be hearing:" Lord, let Your Fire fall in my community and let their be revival"? When Paul encountered Christ, he fell and rose. What He asked was:" Lord, what will You have me do".But today, when we fall under anointing, we stand to start expecting marriage proposals and visas and employment letters.This generation of members in our churches have not had a genuine encounter with the Man of Calvary.No generation has carried Bibles like us without opening it. No generation is materially driven like ours and we expect the land to obey us. Jesus said, pray to the Father that He brings His Kingdom on earth. GOD help us to get it right on time. help us to build up men with the fire of old. empower us Lord to will and to do of your good pleasure .Let's build up our spiritual life cos its very necessary. If you miss heaven u can never miss hell. Think about it. Hell isn't a pretty place. Do the work of an evangelist now by sharing this message with all your contacts.Have you ever wondered what would have happened if we treat the Holy Bible the way we treat our mobile phone? And we really can't live without the BIBLE. The Almighty God will show you a secret that will rewrite your story. Wherever your name is mentioned, it will be for honour and dignity. The Almighty God will open the doors that no man can shut unto you today and forever.Every ancient gate that leads to your breakthrough shall be opened and remain opened. Your doors of favour shall open and remain opened by the special grace of God. l pray that God will always lead you and satisfy your needs in dry lands. He will give strength to your bones. you will be like a garden that has plenty of water,like a spring that never goes dry and victory shall be yours. I pray that God will send you abundant grace to push you up to the ladder of sufficiency and no one will have the privilege to tell you sorry in life. Congratulations is your portion while testimony is your escort.

"HOW TO FEED ON GOD'S WORD"
We must let our light shine everywhere we go. The Word of God is all about love. We as Christians, struggle with love. Love is something you do and not just something you say. We need to minister the message of God's love to everyone we encounter and also our families. One of the most important things you can give your children is love and raise them in the nurturing and admonition of God's love and His Word. No one is born  with racism and hatred. It is taught. Tell your children you love them, often. Love is the universal language. Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Joshua 1:8; "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success." You must study and meditate on the Word of God daily and live accordingly.2 Peter 1:19; "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth into a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:" We have an even greater confidence in the message proclaimed in the Word of God than the experience.John 8:32; "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." There is nothing better than the Word of God to set you free. As long as we keep the Word within us and live accordingly, we can always be free from sin and hatred. Only through our knowledge and practice of the Word of God are we set free from sin and be temperate and have a Christ-like heart that forgives, is caring, loving, gentle, etc. The Word of God is powerful. We must love one another as God loves us. We must remember the Bible is Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth. There is nothing bigger than the Word of God and there is power in the Word.
       
 HYMN FOR TODAY
IS THERE A HEART O’ERBOUND BY SORROW?
Is there a heart o’erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
All your anxiety—leave it there.

Refrain:
All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus!

No other friend so swift to help you,
No other friend so quick to hear,
No other place to leave your burden,
No other one to hear your prayer.

Come then at once; delay no longer!
Heed His entreaty kind and sweet,
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.
