SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE.....Your First Marriage went wrong, Why should you be striken again? - REVIVAL




Beloved, our marriage is unto the Lord, who bought us with His precious blood and is the head of the church - Me and you.

When we objectively look at what is happening to the world today, we can see the 'falling away' of God's people from His ways and His commands. When the Israelites were leaving Egypt to enter the Promised land, God gave them the 10 commandments, statutes and ordinances along the way, to direct their behaviours and make them fit as children of God.

God knew they would have been corrupted with the pagan doctrines and practises in Egypt for 430 years and they needed to be cleansed and purged of those idolatory and fetish practises before entering the promised land.  God did not want them to enter the promised land with idolatory in their heart, fetish rites, sacrifices and amorous lifestyles they saw in Egypt, so He gave them the commandments pending the coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ, the Redeemer and Messiah.

Our era is touted to be the knowledge generation, being an end-time generation, when God promised that knowledge will increase throughout the world and I beg to add that every hidden mystery on earth will be uncovered through wisdom and knowledge, after all, this is the end time and after this time, the entire earth will pass away, so be ready for more mind blowing discoveries in the days ahead.

God is calling His own at this time and saying  "I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me.  Brothers and sisters, have you rebelled against the Lord?  Have you disregarded His word sent to you, His voice and numerous promptings to do good? Have the Lord sent you on errand and you vehemently refused to go - May be to preach the Word and win souls, or be kind to a poor person and a needy sister or brother, and you say you don't have enough?

Imagine that your earthly father sends you somewhere and you refuse to go, whether you are living with him or not, will you be comfortable? Talk less of the Almighty God.  God is speaking to you and sending you on errand because you are His and He says  "The ox knows its owner And the donkey its master's crib; But you that He created and made handsome and or beautiful has forsaken Him and now uses the beauty to serve the devil.  Alot of beautiful women are blinded by their beauty to think they are complete without God.  You can discuss with them a whole day without hearing a simple scripture or even Jesus from their lips.

The handsome qualities God gave some brothers has turned some to  Casanovas - They are handsome and heavily built that all the young ladies are falling for them.  Mr. Handsome, You now have four girlfriends in the church of God, devouring young girls that enter the church  in search of God - Mr. Handsome - consider your ways and depart from evil, iniquity and every appearance of sin.  You are provoking the Holy One to anger and the consequences could be great.

Why Should you be Striken Again?

The question is why should you be striken again - You gave your life to Christ and the Lord answered your most pressing need of that moment, hoping that you will grow in the spirit and in faith and be able to stand the arrows the enemy will throw at you to make you fall.  

Satan is interested in whoever God is interested in.  The first time Jesus saw Simon Peter, He became interested in Peter and quickly changed his name to Rock and later in life, Satan became interested in Peter to the extent that JESUS had to stand in the gap for Peter. I believe Jesus Christ is praying for you, that your faith will not fail...and that you will strengthen your weak sisters!

God sent you to a church and a community of believers who will help you learn how to study the word of God and make it a Priority as it is the food of the spirit, whom you are. He gave you a community of believers who will help you to know God-the-more and how to pray to God for mercy, daily provisions and how to battle the adversary in prayer as well.  The Lord sent you to a community of believers who would help you imbibe the virtues of love, patience, forgiveness and forbearance, long suffering and kindness in the midst of lack and perhaps poverty.  

These believers have learned how to trust and depend on God for their needs and having known Him as the great provider, who will never forsake His own, and so, can afford to share the little they have with others and thereby fulfill the dictates of love. But you have drifted away from that church and community of believers, calling them "old School". Their study of the Word is too boring to you, they are not shouting , jumping up and down and demonstrating human skill and you are not entertained, so you are asking what have you to do with this kind of ancient church...Child of God consider..

Now, after joining the 'reigning' church where they entertain you every sunday, but you remain empty of the Word of God.  Your spirit man is hungry and you are busy feeding your flesh.  As you went for the church and community of your choice, you also got yourself a husband there.  Now the chips are down as it were and you know the man deceived you in many ways, he was not born again, neither a lover of God.  The man after marriage is still keeping girlfriends in the office and other places, so the attention and care he was loading you with have all dried up.

You have been in marriage now for years and there is no conception and he(Your husband) is not bothered and you are saying "God, why me"  Child of God, you are not equally yoked in that marriage, you are not on the same page with your husband and the small light in you is going down every day due to worry and fear of what the future hold for the marriage and yourself.

Why should you be stricken again, child of God? Will revolt more and more against your God, to acknowledge Him and obey His Word and voice, or is the head still sick and the whole heart faints. Are you still grieving from the wounds and bruises and putrefying sores from the beating the devil gave you through your own choice?  Are the bruises still fresh and not closed or bound up or soothed with ointment, but again, I will ask you "is there no balm in Gilead"?


When will you come to terms with the reality of your situation - which is that "there are things others can do and get away, but not a child of God.  Why? The reason is that the devil, if he succeed in diverting a child of promise will afflict him/her with multiple challenges to make it difficult for that person to return to God with all his/her heart.  But, that will not be the same with an unbeliever who is already his child.

Child of God, the entertainment in the 'reigning church' that will not pray and through prayers destroy the works of Satan is an empty noise and that accounts for your desolation and error. Your prayer cannot lift headache out of any one, your beauty and inheritance is burnt with fire and strangers devour your inheritance in your presence.  Agents of darkness divert your blessings before they get to you and you do not even know.  Wicked enemies vow day and night that you will not go anywhere on earth and those unfriendly friends are your best friends.  

Every time, they ask you how you are doing to hear of your lamentation and celebrate what they are doing against you, yet you don't know.  It has become so bad that people vowing against you and making divination against your blessing are the same people helping you to do one thing or another - Child of God....consider!

Why will you be striken again? - because your eyes are not open in spirit, your spirit is hungry of the Word of life and it cannot get it - you think studying the bible is a waste of time and very boring.  I want you to remember that "Unless the Lord of hosts build a city, the builders labour in vein.  Unless the Lord had left to us a very small remnant, We would have become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah. 

Hear the word of the Lord, children of God and leaders in the house of God  "To what purpose is the multitude of your dance and sacrifices to God, when the Word of God is not living inside of you.  Know you not that you are born again by the Word?" Says the Lord.

"To what purpose is your sweet rendition, when you cannot teach my people spiritual warfare, when you know the enemy - the devil is very wicked, a roaring lion seeking who he might destroy.  You cover spiritual warfare with "sow seed and give fat offerings" and my people have no spiritual authority to stand against the enemy of their soul.  Know you not that with spiritual coldness, sin and iniquity will set in and the people becomes vulnerable - they become naked and a prey before the devil?" 

I have had enough of big Cathedrals, And the fat of fed 'shepherds'. I do not delight in the blood of bulls, Or of lambs or goats - I have no pleasure in ill gotten wealth given as Tithe, seed or offering, neither in corrupt and blood money.  Who told you to build my house with corruption?  

"When you come to appear before Me, Who has required this from your hand, To trample My courts?   Bring no more futile sacrifices; Incense is an abomination to Me.   The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies —  I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting. 

Your special programmes where you don't even mention soul winning, kindness, love and righteous living, My soul hates; They are a trouble to Me, and I am weary of bearing them. Your messages that hamper people and make them feel that faith starts and end with declaration is worrisome. What is the evidence that you love Me, when evangelism and soul winning is relegated to the back ground.  No intercession for people in Prison and different places of torment, when the innocent have no helper to assist him in court, even from the church, so that people suffer for the offenses they did not commit. 

Where is the love for the Lord in you, when you don't obey my word given to you.  Where is your love when poor cannot receive help from you, sinners are languishing in their error and dying, while the gospel of comfort and prosperity is the order of the day.  Where is the love for God in you when the weightier things of love for souls, needy and the afflicted is not in you?

Your hands are full of blood. When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; Even though you make many prayers, I will not hear.

What are we expected to Do?

1. "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
2. Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
3. Cease to do evil, 
4.  Learn to do good;
5. Seek justice,
6. Rebuke the oppressor; 
7. Defend the fatherless,
8. Plead for the widow. 

Remember the word of God in Isaiah 1:19 -20  If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land;  But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword".

Brethren, It is time to repent of all our sin and iniquity and return to God.  It is time to shine the light of God in us for others to see and glorify our Father in heaven.  We must be committed to studying and meditating on His Word, which gives power.  The gospel is power and not stories, not dancing etc.  God loves justice and want to see His children stand for justice.  He loves peace and want to see us become peace makers on earth.  God is not prayer or fasting, God is love and God want us to know Him deeply and then live a love life.  A love life is a life of sharing with others, a patient life, a hard working and focused life that is aimed at success, which is later used and spent for the good of others.

Brethren, righteousness must be lodged in our tabernacle, whether we are a politicians, farmers, CEO etc.  We must fear God and obey His word and His voice.  We must never join the multitude to do evil.  We must pray for our leaders in Government and the church to ensure that wine is not mixed with water - so that we will not have hypocrites in position of authority, selfish and corrupt people.  Our prayer will do that for us and the lack of prayer will give us the choice of the enemy. 

Your princes and leaders must not be like the rebellious ones, who disregards the word of God, companions of thieves, people who love bribe and followers of reward. Our leaders should be able to defend the fatherless, the innocent and the oppressed - both small and big and ensure that such defense are institutionalized throughout the nation.  God is a God of justice and love to see the innocent freed.  Without justice, God turns His back on the people, so we must pray for our leaders to fear the Lord and lead us right - Remember  that though the People cast their votes, it is GOD that determines the winner.

Brethren, the fire of God burning in you will not go down in Jesus Christ name! But if there is no fire yet or the fire is getting weaker by the day, say this prayer with me:

"Lord Jesus Christ, I come to you as a sinner, please forgive me and wash my sins away with your precious blood.  I believe you are the Lord, who died for my sins and rose again on the third day.  Come into my heart, be my Lord and saviour, give me the grace to serve you all the days of my life. Thank you for saving me.  Now I am born again" Amen.

Shalom!
