Please read 1 Corinthians 16:13-18

Be alert, be on your guard, and watch out for the elements who work against the gospel of Jesus Christ. They ultimately war against your faith.

These people are carefully hidden and embedded in the Body of Christ. These people are stumbling blocks and stooges, with no good intention for the Kingdom of God.

Be on your guard and be alert! These are the last days. These people have compromised the faith, and will encourage you to do so also, if you are not awake.

Peace and Comfort from God.

Please Read 2 Corinthians 1:3

The strong attacks and opposition against Paul in Corinth, eventually resulted in repentance and reconciliation, to which Paul was joyful.

The Peace of God comes through Grace. The Peace that lasts, reigns, when it is given by Almighty God. The God of all Compassion and grace, gives true peace and joy to His Children. He comforts them in all their troubles.

Therefore, rejoice, and be exceedingly glad!

No longer at war…

Pardoned Sin and Reconciliation

The world promises temporary peace and enjoyment, which can often do more harm, than good to the soul.

The Peace of God, promotes your spiritual life and it is given freely to those who believe in Jesus Christ.

There is an inward peace, that can only come from Almighty God. It comes from knowing your sins have been pardoned and that you are no longer at war with God, but reconciled to Him.

Rejoice today, and again I say, Rejoice.

Anchored in the right place

A ship uses an anchor to stop it from sailing off into dangerous and uncontrollable waters. The question I ask you this morning:

Is your ship anchored in the right place?

Let HOPE be firmly Anchored in God.

Cursed” is the person who puts their trust in man. A “mis-placed” hope is hope placed in the wrong place.

Blessed” is that person who places their hope in the right place – on our faithful Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He is that eternal Solid Rock whose Word and Promise last forever. Jesus never fails.

“At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You,

Because of Your righteous judgments.”

– Psalm 119:62

David gave truthful Worship from the depth of his soul.

What does your devotion consist of this morning? Is it full of thanksgiving and praise in the honour of God? Is it Worship that praises God simply for who He is, and not just for his benefits? Let us remember to offer thanksgiving and praises and worship that honours God on a continual basis.

I encourage you this hour to offer up “Secret Worship” where nobody sees you. Worship offered in the secret recess of your room. Worship that is just between you and God.

True sons and daughters

Whoever receives Christ in their heart is a child of God. This is why the term “believer” or “child of God” is preferred to the term “Christian”. For many, the term “Christian” is just a name they tick while filling out a form. For others, it is a term they grew up using; they were born into a family that used the term or they grew up in a predominantly Christian nation. It is possible for a person to grow up using the term “Christian” without having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

It may surprise many that there are people who believe in Jesus Christ and believe that He is the Son of God, yet do not call themselves Christians. Merely calling/naming oneself a “Christian”, ticking a box, does not equate to being a child of God. Church membership, the multitude of good works or being good does not mean you are a son or daughter of God.

As many as received Him”- John 1:12

Whoever receives Jesus Christ, whoever believes in His name: He gives the right to become a child of God. Whether Pharisee, Sadducee, learned, unlearned, male or female, to them He gave the privilege of sonship to God.

Who are those adopted into God’s family?

The family a person is born into does not qualify them as a “son of God.” The Church a person attends does not qualify them as a “son of God.” Only those who have become born again (they have received the new-birth) have been re-born into |God’s family. Only those who have been adopted into God”s family, can be called a true son or daughter of God. To them, He has given power to become a “son of God.”

You become a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ alone (Galatians 3:26).

Whoever believes that Jesus is Christ, is born of God (1John 5:1). There is no sonship to God without living faith in Christ. Those who believe in the son of God are the true sons and daughters of God.

Come boldly before His throne of grace today. Receive Jesus Christ, accept Him with a willing heart today. Take Him as your personal Lord and saviour. . Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice!

Living at ease, in prosperity, with peaceable conditions can encourage spiritual complacency. When King Solomon presented the Temple before God, these were the conditions under which God promised King Solomon the nation of Israel would either be blessed or punished, (2 Chronicles 7:14). If my:

1. “People who are called by my name”

2. “Will humble themselves”

3. “Pray and seek my face”

4. “Turn from their wicked ways…”

God’s promise of gracious providence and tender affection was based on the condition of the people’s obedience.

God said,

1. “Then I will hear from Heaven”

2. “Forgive sin” and

3. “Heal the land.”

To pray and seek God’s face is essential for a nation to prosper, be at peace and be successful. The Lord has promised to “open” his eyes and “hear” prayers that are earnestly made to him (2 Chronicles 7:15).

The fact is that God permits bad things to happen on the earth to bring attention to sin. God will, “shut up the Heavens,” there will be no rain or He will command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among His people” (2 Chronicles 7:13).

When God’s people come in sincere repentance towards Him and earnestly seek His face, it causes His hand to move. Restoration and revival are promised when the people return to God and completely submit to His divine authority. Self-works and stubborn wills collide with the things of the Spirit. Faithfulness and obedience are found where hearts are truly repentant and submitted to God.

I would like to encourage you this hour, Child of God, to never grow tired or weary of seeking God’s face. Repent of your sins, and return to God. The Lord sits on a high and exalted throne which has not been made with human hands. God’s Love is unconditional.

You can approach God’s throne of grace with confidence. In God’s presence, you will find mercy, grace and help which is desperately needed at this moment in time.

In Christ, you have an Advocate, who pleads your case before God’s throne, an Intercessor, who intercedes, daily, on your behalf.

In this time of grace, seek the Lord while He may be found: call on Him while He is near (Isaiah 55:6).

Testings and Trials in the Christian Race.

Having endured so much in the past, will you now turn back?

Christians all over the world, both in the past and present, have endured so much persecution because of their faith. (It was the desire of the Writer of the Hebrews to encourage the Early Jewish Christians). If you have faith in Christ, I want you to be encouraged today. Whatever persecution you are going through, I want you to remember that you have not gone through it in vain. God has promised to reward you with the Crown of Life, the everlasting Crown of Glory, Amen.

Do not be afraid of what is to come. Rather, let the sufferings and persecutions increase your faith. Be patient to do God’s will. God has promised to reward you. God will give you the grace to ENDURE. We know about what is coming on this earth because of what the Bible says. These are the last days. Always remember that your perseverance is not in vain.
