2 Timothy 4:5 NKJV
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
You want to fulfill the purpose of God in your life, but you never wanted to pass through all the processes. YOU WANT TO DIE IN JERUSALEM WITHOUT FULFILLING ALL THE SCRIPTURES.
YOU WANT TO WEAR THE CROWN OF GLORY WITHOUT WEARING THE CROWN OF THORNS.
You want to wear the Robe of Glory on the body which have not been torn with the lashes and stripes of the Roman soldiers. You don’t want your body to be battered, scourged and dragged on the ground…yet you want to be exalted far above the Principalities. NO CROSS, NO CROWN.
You hate the suffering of the cross…you enjoy the glamor of the world, yet you are a child of God…
THAT AMOUNTS TO COMMITTING SPIRITUAL SUICIDE.
BEWARE OF ALL THESE SWEET TONGUES PREACHINGS THAT DECLARE PEACE! PEACE! WHEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT IN PEACE WITH YOUR GOD.
Beware of all these Bread and Butter Sermons that fail to rebuke your sinful lives and careless living. YOU ARE CHOOSING TO COMMIT SPIRITUAL SUICIDE ON THE PINNACLE OF THE TEMPLE INSTEAD OF CARRYING YOUR CROSS TO GOLGOTHA YOURSELF TO BE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST.
They said our perpetual sinful life do not matter, that Grace would cover it…and our sins are not rebuked.
Their Sermons make us comfortable in our sinful life and Heaven makes no meaning to us again because we have been too worldly to think of heaven.
THAT IS JUMPING DOWN FROM THE PINNACLE OF THE TEMPLE..IN THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM…!
You don’t want to suffer in the ministry, yet you want to be great in the work of God,…IT MEANS YOU WANT TO DIE IN JERUSALEM WITHOUT WALKING THROUGH ALL THE PROCESSES OF Healing people, preaching to the masses, crossing the sea to go and heal a mad man…healing and delivering the multitudes from the bondage of the devil…YOU NEVER WANTED TO RAISE ANY DISCIPLES TO CONTINUE THE WORK…You just want to go to Jerusalem and die ANYHOW…
To experience the Glorious Resurrections, NO CUTTING CORNERS…NO AVOIDING PROCESSES!
May I patiently walk through the Process to my place of Glory.
May I never cut the Corners that will lead me to cutting relevance in HIS end time Agenda.
