What is going on? Churches is still on lockdown in Lagos, Nigeria. No doubt, if we are asked to name and count our blessings this season irrespective of the lockdown, we will. But God has blessed us so much. Nevertheless, Christians must be awakened to the relations of the devil – the anti-Christ systematic approach to bring darkness upon the hearts of man and the Body of Christ. We put an end to all evil decisions made. and dethrone all evil altars in Nigeria and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ. Men must continue to fellowship together and be united in Christ Jesus. Why is the church still locked? It is high time believers of God took this matter seriously and treat it like an ailment that deserves a cure, or like the devil Himself; that is cast away from the Body of Christ. It is time for all God’s people to exert influence and shine our lights to quench every darkness from the pit of hell; in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
I can see people going to shops, markets and friends houses. Certainly, there is no lockdown. Business is been attended to online and offline. Why is the church still on lockdown?
FEW MONTHS AGO
The pandemic season was brutal. We gave thanks to God for every condition (lives lost, resources wasted, relationships lost) that followed. We fought hard as a people and country; everyday made us champions. It was not easy to go through that season and come out alive. Here we are – alive and of sound mind to the goodness of God. We are aware that God will keep us. H e has been comforting and saving us. Some people have complained about God’s love in compares with the hard times; or why he let us go through that.
Our God is not a God of evil deeds. He is a good God. He never promised us a life free of problems or afflictions and trials. But he promised to be with us forever more.
god sent us a message in his word
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
We came to God in prayer. We saw the harvest of men; men sought God and are still seeking Him. The harvest is ripe. The floodgates of heaven was opened; and the spirit of corona virus was cast away. Yes, that spirit of virus is gone. Covid-19 is dead and gone.
The strict adherence of social distancing has watered down. People can now leave their houses to work, meetings, markets, etc. WHAT ABOUT THE CHURCH? IS THERE SOMETHING MISSING? WHO IS THE ENEMY OF THE BODY OF CHRIST?
WHAT ABOUT THE CHURCH?
Something is missing. The puzzles do not match. Why is there a policy or instruction to keep the church gates locked. Why is it a new norm in Lagos Nigeria and other areas of the world? And why are we not speaking. WHO IS THE ENEMY OF THE CHURCH.
Do you recall that Jesus Christ won the victory and defeated the devil? I have often times asked myself why the devil never stops trying. The devil keeps roaring, and walking about, seeking whom he may devour. The Body of Christ must be alert and awake. Every spirit of slumber is casted out in Jesus name. Now, why is it that the devil never stops trying. Why can he not stoop using people to cause decadence and chaos in this world. God is saying my people have failed to know their maker. they have refused to align to the direction of the Holy Spirit and the truth in my word. Just like the persevered in his desist with EVE until she ate the fruit and gave to ADAM; so will the devil until to tempt you and try to influence you; until you go astray from my presence. The devil will not succeed, unless YOU LET HIM…says the Lord.
Does it mean that there are people who let the devil in? Oh Yes. there are gates through which the devil can enter. this is why my people must arm themselves with my word, watch and pray.
The enemy of the church is the one who does not want the purpose or plan of God come to pass. THE DEVIL HIMSELF IS THE ORCHESTRATOR OF THE LOCKED CHURCH GATES. But Jesus Christ gave us the victory keys to unlock the gates. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
the lord is our shepherd
The Lord is our shepherd; we shall not want. 2 He maketh us to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth us beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth our soul: he leadeth us in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Yea, though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
The devil wants us to roam over the place. As a sheep, we must align to order and move in one direction. We are the bride of Christ and the Church is the Groom. No one should touch the anointed of God. No one should separate the Bride from her Lord.
People of God are to walk in orderly lines towards one destination – Heaven our Home. Thank God for online church, cell groups and home churches. Thank God for the guidance and leading through The Five Fold Ministry (pastors, teachers, evangelist, apostles, and prophets). Thank Hod for the Holy Spirit; bonding the body of Christ together in love and unity. We must all align to the leading of the Holy Spirit so as to put the devil to shame. Yes! The devil wants us to roam about and forget the green pastures.
