The world offer us with a pleasure of sin for a season, a pleasure of the flesh, a pleasure of carnality, a pleasure that does not glorify the holiness of the Lord of Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Hebrews 11:25)
Now what is the problem why people find it so hard to submit to the word of God? What hinders the modern generation to look upon the holiness of the Lord, beholding His beauty as King of King and Lord of Lord?
The answer is simply this, “because the carnal world do find it meaningless to desire to seek for God by reading His word in the Bible, nor to call upon His name through prayer in faith”
“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Proverbs 8:17”,
” For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. ”Romans 10:13,
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6
“But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.Psalm 1:2”
People do not desire the truth simply because they refused to obey the Father’s will, and that is to walk as a children of light, submitting ourselves to the word of truth that is found in the Bible, this sinful world refused because it has chosen the path of disobedience that reap the fruit of sin rather than reaping the fruit of the Holy Spirit:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:8-11
So the word of God is commanding us to reprove our evil works that reap the fruit of darkness that leads to eternal condemnation of the wrath of God, which is “death” rather than enjoying God’s inheritance by having an “eternal life”.
“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Ephesians 5:5
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23”
Now God is asking you right now, will you swear allegiance to Him that will give you the privilege to come to His throne of grace and ask for His grace and mercy? Will you come to Christ and swear allegiance to Him by obeying the truths in the Bible?
Brethren, don’t wait for the time wherein the Lord will deny you on the judgment day saying:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 7:21”
Check your heart and asked yourself, am I truly save in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ?
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6”
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 2 Corinthians 13:5”
Seek God now, repent, and asked for His wisdom in faith that will guide you to the path of righteousness.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. James 1:5-7”
GOD IS FAITHFUL
