Let’s start with this verse;
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may liveDeuteronomy 30:19
Now, most people casually read the Bible because they are used to the phrase in the song they used to sing as kids, “Read Your Bible Pray Everyday.” For some reason, they think that the Lord will judge them harshly if they do not read the whole Bible in a year.
This explains why we have poor children of God and erratic pastors with stuffed Bible verses ready to ambush, rebuke and admonish anybody who speaks against what ‘is written’. The so-called modern pastors defend the kingdom of darkness with zeal and vehemence.
If you talk about the glory of God today, you will be stoned to death. If you lets say how you can buy without money or can get healing without going to the hospital, these Bible school chaps will hurl insults at you and call you all manner of things questioning your Theology.
If you speak about abundance, they will say you are a prosperity preacher. I wonder, which God do they serve? A God who is not prosperous? The same people will speak to sinners telling them that they need an abundant God. That there is more gain in the wealth of God.
They love a balance. They speak small about marriage, tomorrow a bit about prosperity the following day a bit about giving and then the rest of the year they speak about sin. Because apparently the Lord hates sin but loves sinners. This explains why so many children of God are downcast, angry and just fed up with this God thing. It is sad that they know a wrong God.
I came to realize one thing. Until these Theological chaps hurl all types of insults backed up with scripture to support their hate, you have still not entered the true Gospel of Christ. Until they hate you and think that you are lost, then you haven’t caused chaos in hell.
If let’s say you had cancer and needed healing, will you go to someone who has knowledge about your healing or someone with no knowledge about your cancer but lays hands on you and you get healed?
Why most children of God leave Church and have satanic mentors as their spiritual fathers is because of one thing; the Theological chaps know all the theory about wealth but the satanic mentors know how to manifest it.
The reason why children of God will go to witchdoctors for healing is because the witchdoctor be outright. They will ask for let’s say their unborn child and they get healed but in Church they will first be condemned of their sin and they will have a completely different view of God.
This brings me to this; there are two paths. i) The path of life – the divine and ii) The path of death – the demonic. Children of God do not know that they can get their breakthroughs through a simple thing like rejoicing.
It is sad that religion taught them not to screw around, not to be angry, not to do this or that because it will interfere with the relationship they have with God and He will punish them. Please note that I am not advocating for those things.
So if that were the case. Ask your pastor these questions.
1. Why does he kill Onan for spilling sperms onto the ground and spares Lot’s daughters for sleeping with their father?
2. Why does he kill the first born of Bathsheba and doesn’t kill the offspring of Lot’s daughters?
3. Why does he kill Aaron sons Nadab and Abihu for a simple mistake of not using fire from the brazen altar and spared their father Aaron for making a golden calf but killing those who worshipped the golden calf.
4. Why does he kill Achan and his innocent family and even donkeys for merely stealing jewellery and a non-Israelite whore Rahab just gets spared for housing two spies? Do you mean a non Israelite whore who has been ‘sinning’ her whole life is better than a soldier who fought many battles for Israel but just stumbled last minute?
5. Why do murderors like David and Moses become great and 42 innocent kids get mauled by bears?
6. Why does a bastard like Solomon who promoted the worship of the devil himself gets to build a temple for the Lord?
7. Why does Solomon who screws prostitutes all over get to be filled by the Holy Spirit immediately after sleeping with a prostitute and gets this mighty power?
And there are tons of many other examples I can share. So from the above, do you still think it is good deeds that please God? I believe your pastor will tell you, “Stop questioning God” or “You leave things of God alone” or “You can never understand God”.
But they will contradict themselves in a sermon and tell you to approach the throne of mercy because the Lord will answer you. They will take you to take your issues to the Lord in prayer for He will answer you.
They will even mention the following verses:
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.James 1:5
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.Matthew 7:7
An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.Proverbs 18:15
If the Lord says we should ask for wisdom and we should seek to understand Him, why should He not answer our questions above?
You see, our Theological chaps go to learn about education but our unlearned disciples walked with God. Do not be intimidated by the amount of theological arguments rather fear and honor those who walk with God. Strive to walk with God not just do things to please Him to get favors.
See, two people can write a book lets say about an indigineous community. One may choose to study other people’s work about the community and ocassionally visit the community and another may decide to permanently relocate to the area for a period of five years.
The two books will be entirely different. One will be a mere reported speech and the other will be an experience. One researched and another studied. What baffled the Pharisees (researchers) about the disciples (let’s call them encounterers) is because people with zero knowledge had power and they didn’t.
There is nothing new under the sun, today our researchers are our Theological chaps with theoretical knowledge of God from heavy research and pieced up knowledge of people who encountered God. They forget that you cannot reverse engineer a miracle, it is either you have it or not.
It is sad that they will preach the goodness of the Lord but have but bile in them. They will always see but not perceive and will defend a Lord who doesn’t exist, well, I was about to say the devil. One may say that I hate pastors but no. Some are doing a very commendable job. All I want for them is to awaken at a time such as this. We simply have got no time.
Now, back to our two paths.
In the garden of Eden, two trees define the path. You can read an article about the two trees here. So the tree of life represents life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil represents death. Most people think death means instant death well, no. You can die every single day of your life.
There is the path of life, a path which Job says that no fowl knoweths not and no vulture has ever seen it. Why a vulture? Vultures eat on carcasses. It simply means that in that path, there is no death.
God, all through the Bible, tries to bring man to this path. And He actually gives the ultimate sacrifice, himself. He says that He has presented two paths one of life and one of death and He even gives you a leakage; choose life.
Then there is the other path, the path of death. This is the path of those that choose to deny God and His power. It is for those who deny God walked this earth and gave salvation through His son Jesus.
So what is sin? Sin is never the action. It will never be. Sin is not about habits or morals. It is not about drinking, smoking nor sexual immorality. Do I take it a notch higher? It is not about murder. I know with this statement, it is not only Theological chaps that want to stone me but also their ‘God-fearing’ followers.
If murder was sin, why does God put a mark on Cain and says whoever hurts him he shall hurt him sevenfold? Why does Moses murder and God doesn’t instantly strike him dead? He actually nurtures him to become a force to reckon? Why does he kill 42 ‘innocent’ kids and not a David who kills for sexual pleasures?
So what is sin? Well, sin is simply walking in the path of death. Simple. Sin is a way of life not an action. You can ‘sin’ or rather do wrong in the path of life and you will be pardoned because you are sinning in what we call the grace.
If you walk in the path of life, you do not walk as you but as Christ. You will not be you and God will not see you but Christ. This explains this verse;
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!2nd Corinthians 5:17
This means that everything you do in this path the Lord doesn’t look at you as a sinner or as you but through the lens of Christ and that why the Bible says that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
So those in this path are not under the law of sin, By the way I did not write those words above. Go read Romans 8:1-2. Because of this, Jesus comes and settles the ground even. He openly says that a murderor and a liar are equal in matters doing wrong. If a young man sleeps with all the ladies in choir, a man rapes and kills a 2 year old and a pastor who told his family I am 15 minutes away and he is 23 minutes away, they are all sinners.
Now, these Theological chaps, because they want to sound holier than though will exalt some sins above others. They think that the epitome of sin is sexual immorality but simple lies are okay with the Lord. They will tell you to bring an offering should you have knocked down a pedestrian to death so that curses doesn’t come to you.
So many people left the faith because of fear and intimidation. During crusades one is told about how they love the Lord. A drunkard will receive the Lord because they were drawn by grace but when they are already in Church, they will be told that God hates drunkards. The devil slowly tells them that they do not belong.
It is sad that we have churches that delve so much into sin instead of preaching the goodness of the Lord which saves. I am going to ask you a question, how did you stop some habits? Is it because it was preached to you that it was bad? Or that addiction just left? You see, if you intensify the annointing, automatically some things just die a natural death but if you intensify the law you keep strenthening those vices as they seem sweet.
Most friends that stopped drinking or vices like pornography just said, ‘I watched until I got bored’ and another will say, ‘I drank until I got bored.’ You stop bad habits because of a journey, a walk, not of fear, not of intimidation but of love.
You drink your beer as you read the Bible. You will not know how you stopped. My Theological chaps will tell me I am advocating for sin and I need deliverance. Actually, get it from me, the best way to evangelize and deliver someone is to tell them to continue having their drink but know that the Lord loves them.
So what is repentance? Repentance is not merely ‘Forgive me father because I have sinned’. Samson did not repent after sleeping with the prostitute. Moses did not tell God, ‘I am not worthy!’ Repentance is simply moving from the path of death to the path of life. It is more of change your ways.
These mere words of rub my name from the book of death to the book of life is nonsense. Surely, do you think because you screwed around Jesus immediately erased your name? Or because you thought about it he was standby with a rubber? If that were the case, I would want to get a tender in heaven to supply rubbers.
You know religion taught us very nonsensical things. There is a day as a small boy I burnt a frog and I thought my name was erased and I had to cry to the Lord to write it back. Another day I called another boy a dog and I had to plead to the heavenlies not to rub my name.
According some pastors there are some acts that will make Jesus erase your name but He will overlook if it was him lying to his family that he was 15 minutes. The path of life is a path of freedom. You can actually do whatever you want to do. But don’t. This fulfills the scripture, whoever the son sets free is free indeed. Your past, present and future sins are forgiven.
The life of grace is bizzare. What the religious church has done is to take the government law and match it with the grace so that they can be in harmony with the devil. To look neutral and also enforce the word of their ‘barbaric’ God. They want to be viewed as a Bible believing church with staunch Christians. Now do you see why Jesus had to go for the ‘noobs’ in the society and not Theological chaps?
What should you do now that you know you can do absolutely anything in this grace and still cheat your way to heaven? Should you sin so that grace may abound?
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires. Do not present the parts of your body to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and present the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.Romans 6:12
Remember, it is not your good deeds that saved you and that means that your bad deeds cannot make you fall short of the glory of God. God will not look bad at you because of your bad deeds, we call that grace. Religion will teach you that you have no money because you sleep around but in fact those that sleep around have more money than the whole church combined. You wonder who is lying to who?
I know you are pondering about the questions I asked above. Let’s chat in the comments section. I promise to answer all of them and any other questions you might have.
All is not lost, the Lord loves you with all His heart and all He wishes for you is prosperity. There is a lot for you to learn, browse through articles in this blog and come for fellowship and learn more. Check the poster below.
