But it’s Not Wrong!!!

Doing things that are not wrong would send a lot of people to the wrong place…

 Luke 10: 38-42

38 As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him in her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to his teaching. 40 Martha was upset over all the work she had to do, so she came and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!”41 The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, 42 but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Martha did nothing wrong, but Jesus rebuked her, not because that was not right, it was not the most important. The Pharisees did nothing wrong by trying to serve God perfectly but the Lord rebuked them (their perfection became to their standard and not His). Scripture says:

Matthew 7:21

21 “Not everyone who calls me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but        only those who do what my Father in heaven wants them to do.

For you to call someone your lord, you must be under him or have accepted to be, when Jesus said this, He wasn’t referring to the “unsaved” (He is their Lord, but they don’t call Him one), NO, He was referring to the “saved”. It’s not wrong to call, accept and make Him your Lord; yet He rebukes them (once the motive is faulty).

Revelations 3:15-16

15 I know what you have done; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were either one or the other! 16 But because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth!

I will pour them out that are neither hot nor cold. Let’s analyse this; there are only two concepts in existence: God and the devil, now when God knowing this says you’re neither of them, what does He mean? This requires you to settle down and think- be still; when someone is not of God, automatically, he is of the devil (and vice versa), God knows this, but do you? Now can someone be of God and not of God? YES, can someone be of the devil and not be of the devil, NO, the bible says

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…

My people perish because of lack of KNOW-legde, when you do things that are not wrong, you THINK you have done right, listen to me, there is only one right! And that right is JESUS, those the book of revelation was referring to, were or are those that think they know Him, not those that know the know Him. Right-Choice people not Righteous people; the former have done nothing wrong but still have not done anything right! Let’s look at it mathematically (parable of maths…lol),once you miss the First formula, no matter how right the other formulas are, you will never get the correct answer, so also it is with Christianity, once you miss the first and most important step, all the rest no matter how good the world sees it becomes useless,

(1+1= 3, 2+2= 4, total =7 wrong even though the 2nd step was correct)

again still with maths, if your 1st step is correct but along the line you make a mistake, unless you realize, and correct, you would end up with a wrong answer, likewise Christianity, if you have drifted away, unless you confess and forsake not just your evil but wrong ways; you will end up in a terrible way. Those that do wrong know they are wrong so it’s easy for them to repent, those that do not do right (actually think they do), don’t know they are wrong so it’s more difficult for them to repent! Wait, what are they repenting from? That’s the point! haha! Sounds familiar… Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him… John 14:6 nkjv

Hi, unless you have said yes to Jesus (in case you haven’t and want to, kindly follow this linkhttps://bib4le.wordpress.com/yes-to-jesus/to do so and also know why you are), all your works with Him might be useful but at the end of the day, you will just be useless…

SIN- Satan’s Influential Nature.

For me, what comes to mind when the word sin is mentioned is, “Satan’s Influence Nothing else” (satan’s influential nature)! this is the state at which one is disconnected from God (it is important to note that the prefix “dis” thus used here stands for distant, meaning God is just distantly connected to us when we are sinners, but so distant, He can’t connect or help us), remember He said:

“…I will never leave you nor forsake you”…Hebrews 13:5b

 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” James 4:8

Meaning He is with us, but in way that requires us going to Him. God doesn’t first of all draw close to us while we are still in sin because as much as He is a merciful Father (Deuteronomy 4:31); He is also a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29). A sinner is who we have become not what we are; the true us is the image of God-

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them”… Gen 1:27

…if it is true that man is defined by life, then the mortal body is not who we are, God in all wisdom knew that man would fall- {someone might be thinking, if God is so good, why didn’t He just pretend the fall of man never happened and just create another master plan, why didn’t He just cover-up, no He had a plan, He still does concerning you, He solved it before it could ever come up-

 

“All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”… Revelation 13:8

 

And we know from John 1:29 that the Lamb spoken of- here is Jesus

 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world “John 1:29

 

And so therefore, here is what you should understand

 

“knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained (appointed) before the foundation (creation) of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you”… 1st Peter 1:18-20

 

This is to say, THE SOLUTION TO THE FALL OF MAN WAS SOLVED BEFORE THE FIRST MANT FELL!!!}

… But since His image couldn’t fall, He created a body to house the fall of man; called SIN. God hates sin not the sinner (not you, just the bad things you do), again this is prove that sin is not who we are, but what we have become. Sin is innate in our natural DNA; it’s not something you acquire after birth-

“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity and in sin, my mother conceived me… Psalm 51-5”

…sin is a recessive gene that is dominant on earth once given birth too, and remains dominant until… (And that is why even a repented soul, after the sin gene has returned to its normal recessive nature even here on earth, when the person gives birth, that recessive gene picks up again in  the child and becomes dominant).

Now, realizing it’s not by your strength that the sin entered you, it is important to also note that, it’s not by your strength that the sin would be gotten out of you. Sin is the distance between you and God, the separation of you from God’s will- here is how it works in a sinner’s life:

GOD—GOD’S WILL—US… (What should be)

Now, since sin can’t take God’s place and can also not take our place, it takes the place of God’s will in our life (this is only because God’s will becomes manifest in us when we allow Him, the devil can control what we allow, if we let him), we now have,

GOD—SIN—MAN… (What actually is)

and so when GOD looks to see His will in man, all He sees is Sin in man, God’s will is defined as anything you can think of- that I know you’re thinking of right now!!! that’s what sin is stealing away (note, its present continuous, His mercies are new every morning, so every time they come, sin legally steals them away)

But, here is something that should interest you-

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”… Romans 5-8

…Christ did not die for us after we sinned, but rather while we were still sinners. This means the solution had been given long before we realized we sinned, of course, the essence of the death of Christ Jesus cannot be over emphasised. Sin was not in our master plan but became part of our master plan as a result of satan’s influential nature, and so, that’s why even while things were wrong, He was making right (He is making right)…He sent His Son to die for us because the devil comes to kill, to steal and to destroy!, the devil is greedy; he doesn’t just stop at trying to steal God’s will in your life, he also wants to kill and destroy our being which is the image of God, he doesn’t only want you to sin but, to also go to hell were, you wish you were killed and destroyed while eternally living, not somewhere even the devil wants to be but has to be…

Satan’s influential nature doesn’t have your name in it, only satan’s. You have been redeemed through the blood of the Lamb; the only  begotten Son of God and so don’t allow satan deceive you otherwise, thereby stealing, killing and destroying God’s will for your life.

“The thief (devil) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly”… John 10:10

The Ambassador

       Have you ever looked at someone and said that person must be Yoruba or better still, you see someone and you’re like she’s a white person or maybe Chinese. When you see someone’s ID card, you know he’s from a particular location, school or office, looking at someone’s face tells you whose son the child is (for those that know the father).

The ambassador of any country is known by his style of dressing, location of the environment placed, his plate-number and most importantly the country he came from. No matter  how well and fun the life of an ambassador is; he always knows he has an expiring date and so works his best to accomplish the much he can before he returns home.

The ambassador’s authority comes from his home country but the country he is based in also pays him. He is responsible for telling that country all he knows about his country, how his country can help improve the present country he is in. Whenever the president of the ambassador’s country comes, he is in-charge of taking the president around, introducing him to the president of that country and showing him what the two countries have done with respect to his country. After the agreed or fixed period of time, the ambassador returns back home where he leaves for ever.

                                                WHAT COULD GO WORNG!

If the ambassador goes and does not do his work, that country gets tired of him and his country removes him. For him to be an ambassador of a particular country, the ID of that country he must keep.

If he gets to a country that is better than his own and decides to take the citizenship of that country, then he is no longer fit to be the ambassador of his former country and so he’s not. A citizen can’t be an ambassador in his own country…

Imagine me been the Nigerian ambassador to Nigeria

                                       WHAT’S THE POINT OF ALL THIS:

WE are God’s ambassadors, whose home we find in heaven; here on earth are we to do, that in heaven, which earth appreciates.

                     “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”…

Mathew 6: 10b

 A reasonable question

If you can look at someone and know his sex, school, state, country etc., just by identifying something that made you know- how then is it that when someone looks at your life; sees your identity, he still doesn’t recognise you are heaven based or does he? (I really pray they do, however, the good news is they still can). As an ambassador of God; does your character, talk, association, conversation, believes, faith shows were your origin is?

      An ambassador of God is someone sent from heaven to do earthly jobs the heavenly way.

                                                                                      Oluwatosin Olabode

He is someone who introduces the lifestyle of heaven to people here on earth, a person who knows his reward and salary comes from heaven.  No matter how well earth is (tempting and all that), an ambassador of God knows, he will one day have to return home to give an account of his stewardship (Luke 16:2); on how he spent earth.

                                Do you even know you’re an ambassador?

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

                                                                                   2 Corinthians 5:20…

Something is wrong if you’ve not been doing heaven business here on earth. It’s Scriptural that all you do be done to the glory of God…

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men

Colossians 3:23

… Meaning that course you’ve studying, that profession you are in, should all be done to the glory of God. If earth hasn’t heard about heaven in your location; where are you from and whose ambassador are you?

       Listen, an ambassador is sent to a location because he fits into that place. If God sent you to earth, (your office, home, continent, for instance), its only because they people you would find there would listen to you best about heaven than anyone else, anywhere else, at any point in time of your existence.

                                                                                  Oluwatosin Olabode

               Kingdom business is what you’re called intoget involved now! Getting  involved however  requires  you to first realize you’re sent from heaven, accept this  fact and receive Jesus  Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour( VISIT my YES TO JESUS PAGE, https://bib4le.wordpress.com/yes-to-jesus/) as He is the only one  with the direction of   both here and back to home. YES TO JESUS page will lead you through the process of doing just that…

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

                                                                                             John 14:6…

When you’ve done the above, ask Him for your assignment as his ambassador, and then together youGuys will do it.
