EYE OPENER WORD
1Pet.1.15 But just as he who called you is holy so be holy in all you do; (NIV)
Glory to God, when God says it, I believe it! There is this category of people who seem wise enough to the point of challenging the Scriptures, this they either do it by giving contrary statement that directly undermines the scripture or even claim to observe the Scriptures and yet openly leading otherwise.
2Tim.3.5 They will act as if they are religious but they will reject the power that could make them godly You must stay away from people like that. (NLT)
I am quite sure you have heard of statements like, “No one can be holy enough.” Sir, madam, come here and explain to me your understanding of this verse. The Bible is very clear that we can reach a level of perfection that is desired by God, a level of Holiness that is equal to that of God. No amount of excuse is going to challenge what God said. You better agree with the word of God. Yes, a state where one can stand before God without a sense of guilt and condemnation. Understand that there is no contradiction in the word of God.
In the earthly army Troup, when the commander in chief has given a command, it is a Mandatory duty of every soldier to hearken to it. No questions allowed, whether you feel like it or not, whether you feel it or not.
It is a command for us to be holy as even He(God) is holy. When it is a command, you have no business arguing around. Whether you like it or not, you must execute that command, standards aren’t going to be lowered for anybody.
Another statement that people like using as an excuse, The commandments are difficult hard grievous to keep. Again, who told you? That should be the voice of the devil speaking in you! It is only the devil that is known to contradict the scripture, you remember in Genesis 3 what caused the fall of man? It was as a result of man hearkening to the very deception of Satan. Just in case you are forgetting, let me take you back.
“Gen.3.4 And the serpent said unto the woman Ye shall not surely die” (KJV)
What had God said?
Go to Gen.2.17
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
— Genesis 2:17 (KJV)
Yes, are you with me? The last part of this verse, God made it clear that man would die if he would eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Satan offers a direct contradiction to what God says. Have you heard this voice before, a conviction against the word of God? It’s the voice of the adversary.
I tell you the commandments of God are not grievous either. Don’t allow deception from the accuser of the believers.
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”
— 1 John 5:3 (KJV)
I love the New Living Translation. Hear what it says, Loving God means keeping his commandments and really that isn’t difficult. (NLT)
Dear friend, choose today to hear, believe and obey God’s word,His commands, His word is true and Amen, agree with His word! It is not burdensome as some count.
All in all, God has given us grace to help us obey Him. He has given us the Holy Spirit too, who is our ultimate helper.
Are you afraid of falling? Dear one, it is not within your power to keep and sustain yourself from falling, surrender it all to God.
He is the only one who can keep you from falling.
“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,”
— Jude 1:24 (KJV)
Bro Levis prays for you, that you will the master the art of giving a deaf ear to what the devil has to say and that you will hear and obey the voice of God always.
May the Holy Spirit tune you to the frequency of God in the name of Jesus Christ.Amen.
