He wanted someone to be saved. He asked “whom shall I send?” then one among them stood and said, “send me”, and he was sent, he was meek and lowly, humble he was and despite coming from a rich place, he accepted to be born in a poor household, in a carpenter’s house. He became natural from being super natural, he did the ordinary yet he could do the extra-ordinary. Amazing he was, he was not a darling to many though, he had his own trials, pains and tribulations.
He became a hero after he conquered all, and he was crowned “The Son Of God”, to him/her who believed in him, he gave him/her the power to be called “The Son Of God” or “The Daughter Of God”. Many came before him and even after him and call themselves “The Messiah”, yet we know it is only one “Messiah” who through him we get salvation. To those who came before him prepared a way for him and to those who now claim to be him are probably “the second coming messiah”.
Pastors, singers and many more people stand in the gap, to represent him; they carry his light and perform what he would have performed by calling onto his name. To the “miracle workers” they attach their power to him, because he who believes in him and calls his name has the power to destroy scorpions and snakes under their feet. Like how he was sent, to the “miracle workers” they are also sent, they do not own any power they use, it is not theirs. Some claim to have the power to heal and chase demons in someone, but it stands the power in them belongs to Jesus only, not the devil, the devil has no power of his own, he was given, but to Christ he owns the power, because after conquering he is now a King, an obedient Son of God.
It is not an ordinary thing, to talk the things of spirituality; some find it funny to speak of God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit in this time and age. It is not funny; it is what defines us, our past, our present and our future. Have you heard of people who always praise the Lord during their victory? Even if their path to success was not guided by Godly principles?
To my quest for understanding, I stand to be counted blameless, to those who are given the power or supposedly lead people to Christ, should stand blameless. A pastor, a singer, a television or radio presenter who represents Christ should stand in holiness and straight living. Immorality should not be mentioned in you neither touch any part of you, because when you do so, you are like the person who has put on a white cloth, he/she is holy but the white cloth is tattered and around his/her legs, he/she is bound by chains and carries a heavy burden on his/her head, going in and out of the doors of Hell.
The story of the person who went to Christ at night, says the man afraid of being associated with Christ went to seek him at night. He was a wise man and despite the “evil” in him, he knew through confession and going to Christ, he would be saved. To those who hold strong positions and are afraid of being associated with the precious Jesus should borrow a leaf and go down on their knees at night, should put off the lights and whisper a repentance prayer.
To those who live a double-life, should realize they are not on either side, neither for Christ nor for the devil, I have a feeling when they die, they will be suspended on air because no one will take them. They too should repent.
THIS IS AN AWAKENING CALL.
