*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*DO YOU LOVE GOD? (2)*
John 3:30 *He must increase, but I must decrease.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Today, people use all kinds of means to increase themselves so that Christ may decrease.
John the Baptist declared that Christ increased while he decreased.
Yesterday, we looked at a category of five groups who hate God.
Today, we will look at another group of God haters.
This group consists of people who criticize God's most fearful men and women of God for no good reasons.
This group consists of people who may not have through Bible knowledge but have nominal knowledge. Some may have knowledge but have a know-all or hollier-than-thou attitude, and some are heretics. What they all have in common is criticism.
This group is very dangerous and highly destructive to the Kingdom of God. This is their primary focus.
They look for a generation that hates God and prey on them.
They look to persuade as many in this generation of foolish, ignorant, and naive generation further away from God.
With this group of critics, the generation of God haters is no way near loving God.
Rom 1:21 tells us that the most vulnerable heart to darken is a foolish heart. lt says, *"....their foolish heart was darkened.*
This group hopes to multiply a generation of people who hate God
by darkening their eyes that they may not see the truth of God's word.
Rom 11:10 *Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see,...*
With the advent of so many money-making mediums today, many of these critics make money by the many followers they make, not
because they preach Jesus but because they say things that the generation of God haters want to hear.
In addition to being widely accepted, they criticize and speak heresy to make money.
They receive quite a high level of listernership, and this often boost their zeal for more grounds to distort and destroy the gospel.
They are so quick to accuse God's faithful vessels of making money through the gospel while they also are publishing and creating content that would fetch them money and fame through more people who follow and listen to them.
This group will look for loopholes in the service of God and, if found to be untrue, will not humble themselves to admit their falsehood.
Their lies would have traveled far and counted for listenership, leading propagating and endangering generations who hate God.
They wish to increase while the gospel of Christ decreases.
If you belong to the generation who spreads lies about the gospel, you will eventually lose them faster than you gained them.
To all gospel critics, you must decrease while Christ increases!
Do you love God?
To love God, you have to decrease while He must increase.
Look for a vessel who sacrificed his/her achievements for Christ, who admits his failures to his followers who adore him yet is not afraid of losing them.
*Call to Word action.*
Listen to God fearing men and women of God. Remember, what you listen to can determine the generation you will belong to.
Acts 4: 19-20 *But Peter and John replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to listen to you rather than God.*
20 *For we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
A vessel who humbles him/herself under Christ should find the generation that loves God. Look and pray to God to lead you to him/her!
Lord, help me to decrease while you increase in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
