Are you Two-timing?

Before you read this, you should know I'm still a 'work-in-progress' myself and I'm definitely still working on some of these things. But the truth has to be said whether I'm comfortable with it or not.
1. You believe in saving sex till marriage because the bible commands it, but yet, you’re comfortable watching TV shows, movies and music videos that openly practice and promote these very things that the bible preaches against.

2. You don’t curse or swear because you strongly believe that as a Christian you shouldn’t, but yet, you’re very comfortable listening to songs that are filled with such profanity.

3. You dress modestly at all times because you know your body is the temple of the Holyspirit, but yet you have no issues complementing your friends and celebrities on social media who are pretty much naked.

4. You believe Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and you believe He is the only way to an eternity with God, but yet you are comfortable being in a relationship with someone who doesn’t share the same beliefs as you do.

5. You say you love the Lord deeply and you say He comes first in your life, but yet you are comfortable with giving him just 2 hours in your seven-day week. The two hours is the time spent in church, by the way.

6. You say you love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind, but you ignore the fact that loving Him means obeying His commandments which includes preaching the gospel to every creation.

So check yourself, are you really sold-out to Him or are you just two-timing and picking and choosing?

Blindness in the Church

“Rev 3:15-17 “I know everything you have done, and you are not cold or hot. I wish you were either one or the other. 16 But since you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17 You claim to be rich and successful and to have everything you need. But you don’t know how bad off you are. You are pitiful, poor, blind, and naked

In these last days, the church has become blinded by so many things or should I say everything? And by the way, when I say church, I mean members of the body of Christ.

Remember when you first gave your life to Christ and you felt like talking about Christ to anyone and everyone you saw? Remember how you used to constantly think about the rapture and meeting your King? But now are those thoughts still there? Or have you become so consumed by your everyday life, needs, wants that you’ve totally forgotten about God? Think about that before you answer it. 

I’m not asking about whether you still go to church or read your bible, no! I’m asking about whether you’re still connected to God. Being connected to God means being in tune with His will and His heart. It means you live everyday as though it’s your last and going all out for God. Being connected to God means your prayer time is not always filled with “I need, I want”. So again I ask, are you still connected with God or have you become lukewarm- neither cold nor hot? You’re not cold in the sense that you still stick to the ‘rules and regulations’- you know, still going to church, having your quiet time daily, not fornicating, not swearing and so on. But at the same time, you’re not hot because there’s absolutely no fire for God burning in you anymore.

Consciously and unconsciously, you’ve been blinded by the things you see (the job, the family issues, the money e.t.c.), completely forgetting that they are temporary- 2 Corinthians 4:18 “Things that are seen don’t last forever, but things that are not seen are eternal. That’s why we keep our minds on the things that cannot be seen. When I say you’ve been blinded by them, I mean you’ve let them consume you completely. That’s what is always in your thoughts, your actions, your conversations and even in your dreams.

You need to check yourself, has rapture become such a distant reality to you? I mean, you know the end will come, but have you’ve subconsciously made it an event that would not occur in the foreseeable future? Think about it before you answer and check if your current lifestyle reflects the same answer you give.

In rounding this up, this is what God is saying to you right now “If you remain in that state of lukewarmness, I’ll spit you out of my mouth”. It’s time to wake up from your slumber and do away with the blindness.
