The God of the Holy Bible, who happens also to be The Creater of Heaven and The earth, and is also The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob, The God of Israel, The Holy One of Israel (The God of Prophet Jeremiah, Elijah, Moses, Isaiah and king David) is a Loving and a Gracious God who indeed Blesses His Sons and Daughters, and wants them to Prosper. Yes, He wants you (them) to Prosper, to have Peace, Success, Happiness and to receive His Blessings. But at the same time, He Always Calls for Accountability in the form of Repentance for the forgiveness of Sins through His Only Begotten Son (The LORD Jesus Christ), and a walk in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. This is captured in the Book of Jeremiah 29: 11-13 which is written as follows: ‘“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”’
This other “God” who is always “dishing out” “blessings” and “success”, and seems not interested in Repentance, Righteousness and Holiness in preparing for The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, I am suspicious of “Him”. “He” must be closely related to Dagon, Baal, Molech, Asherah, Beelzebub, Ishtar: The False/Pagan gods mentioned in the Bible.
The LORD is a God of Order. His Pure Word and Truth remains Constant always. The message from the True House/Ministry/Sanctuary/Vessel of The LORD is always about following His Ways and His Requirements: The Call to come out of a lifestyle of Sins, and Repent of Sins, and thereby walk in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD. That remains His Standard, regardless of the situation or the circumstances. His Standard of Holiness, Righteousness and Truth has never changed, and will never change.
So, when The LORD talks about His House, it is the House (Ministry-s) that bears His Name, and follows (and Preaches) His Ways and His Requirements. Yes, The LORD says He will pour out His Blessings to those who bring Tithes & Offerings to His Storehouse (His House), but therein still is His Call to follow His Ways and Requirements. Remember, No one can bribe God, because all things belong to Him; He just gives us the opportunity to receive Genuine Blessings from Him when He reminds us of His Storehouse. This is very powerfully captured in the Book of Malachi 3: 10-11 which is written as follows:‘“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts.”’
Yes, this (the above) needs to come from the heart (One should not be manipulated or tricked or threatened into it), and that’s why The LORD says through Paul (in New Testament) as captured in the Book of 2nd Corinthians 2: 9: 7-8 which is written as follows: ‘“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”’
He is thus a God of Love, Blessings, Mercy & Grace (and brings Peace, Happiness, Success and Joy of Salvation), but at the same time He is a Consuming Fire (Who passes Judgement on Sin; for He says that the wages of Sin is Death). He gave the ultimate Ransom for redemption of mankind from Sin: His Son The LORD Jesus Christ, who Paid for it All at the Cross of Calvary through His Blood. Wherever this God Speaks, whether it is about His Blessings, Mercy, Love, Grace and Breakthrough upon His Sons and Daughters, He must Always point to the Cross and The Blood of His Son (The LORD Jesus Christ) and the need therefore to embrace Repentance for the forgiveness of Sins and thereby walking in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. He Always has a theme that says: “Seek Yee First The Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and All these others Shall be Added Unto You.” At the same time, His theme is also Always as follows: ‘“Pursue Holiness, without which No one will see The LORD”’.
Therefore, this other “God” who is just in the “Business” of dishing out “Blessings” from January to December, from Sunday to Saturday, from Morning to Evening, from Dawn to Dusk; and Seems not to Rebuke Sin and tell people to turn away from Sin and to direct People to (The message of) The Blood and The Cross of Calvary, in Preparing the Way for The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, I am Suspicious of “Him”. He Cannot be and Must not be The God of Heaven; Him who created the Heaven and the Earth, and gave His Son Jesus Christ for Redemption of mankind; that whosoever Accepts Him and Believes in Him, shall not Perish but have Eternal Life.
Therefore, if your “Pastor”, “Man of God”, “Woman of God”, “Prophet”, “Prophetess” E.T.C is always just busy directing you to a “God” who is always “dishing out” to you “Success”, “Blessings”, “Cars”, “Houses”, “Restoration”, “Happiness”, “Miracles”, “Breakthrough”, and Yet not telling you to Come out of a lifestyle of Sin and embrace Repentance for the forgiveness of your Sins, and thereby endevouring to walk in Righteousness before The LORD, Holiness, Truth according to The Word of God and Complete Surrender to The LORD, then it’s time to Run away from Such. Infact, it’s time to ask them when they will be leading you (and everyone else) to pursuing Righteousness and Holiness, that you may enter into The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven. Holiness essentially means separating yourself (Oneself) from a lifestyle of Sin. Being “Conscious” of Repentance, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ, through The Help of The Holy Spirit.
Therefore, The LORD God Almighty is a God of Love, Peace, Prosperity, Blessings & Grace. But at the Same Time, He is a Consuming Fire; That Consumes Sin and Sinners (Who Refuse to Repent of their Sins).
Being Born-again comes with Responsibility and Accountability: The Responsibility and the Accountability to walk in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ, in Preparing The Way for The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven.
May you receive the Genuine Blessings of The LORD and the Joy of Salvation. May The LORD Prosper you and Raise you (in your area of operation) for the Glory and Honour of His Mighty Name, even as you embrace Repentance for the forgiveness of Sins, and thereby walk in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD; in Preparing the Way for the coming of The LORD Jesus Christ to take to Heaven His Faithful Sons and Daughters.
SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!! SHALOM!!!
