Brethren, let us again welcome the Holy Ghost into our heart to lead us into all truths today.

The scripture says that darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee  - Isaiah 60:2.  I believe this prophesy of Isaiah is coming to pass before the coming of Christ.

Darkness is covering the earth gradually, and the people gross darkness characterized by people doing their own thing, regardless of the Word of God.  Even in the church today, many are just in the church for their social and business interest, not to seek the Lord and His righteousness.  

The spirit of the world has crept into the church and many of the believers are living like unbelievers.  They are telling lies, worshiping other gods, and bowing to idols.  We have people occupying leadership positions in churches that are not born again. Some of them are leading groups in the church of God, yet they are agents of Satan.  

The good news is that the light of the Lord shall shine upon you and the true church of Christ will shine more and more in the midst of the dark world like never before.

Being Holy in Conversation

Being holy in all our conversation is one of the advices that help believers realize who they are in Christ. I believe it should be followed by the warning ....of Apostle Paul to the Corinthians that "evil communication corrupt good manners" 1 Cor 15:33.   You are not just any one...NO. You are a servant of God, an Ambassador of Christ, called and separated unto God for His praise , so your conversation, jokes and lifestyle should glorify Him.

The word we speak in conversations can bring blessing or curses upon our lives, can encourage other people or discourage them, can build people or destroy them.  In conversation, our strength and weaknesses are revealed; our character also and lack of character is revealed.

One of the way to show forth the light of Christ is in our conversations is to recognize the gift of gifts and ability - God in our conversation and not justify our success to hard work only. Who gave you the wisdom, strength and good people that supported you? What we say in our conversations, business discussions and even the jokes we crack will give an indication of the state of our heart and what we believe - Self, friends or God.  It should be God first, then others in that order.

Be ye holy in all manner of conversations requires delicate separation from the evil patterns of this world unto God.  It requires that you speak the truth and only the truth to your neighbour and your enemies.  It requires that you are the same person on the pulpit and at home and office.  It requires our conversations will be filled with words of grace, words that edify the person we are talking with. 

Truth spoken in love, not only edify, it also heals wounds and help people amend their weaknesses without being emotionally depressed.  This is very important as many people reject any form of judgmental opinion.  Holiness in our conversation with people means we recognize the importance of conversation in our walk with the Lord.  Human activity is full of conversation as all interaction is a conversation with someone, be they familiar of not.

It is to recognize that the purity of our heart, the sanctification of our body finds expression in our comments and opinion.  The proof of our faith is in the confessions we make and other faith actions we take.  Interaction is critical because it is in conversation that we make known our stance on issues.

A conversation need not be in the church or open for it to be holy.  It may be formal or informal, structured and unstructured, planned and impromptu.  All conversations that a child of God find himself engaging in is an opportunity to exhibit his godly characters and convictions that glorify his Father in heaven. It could be text messages,  meetings, the phone calls, the chatting with family members, friends and relations, business associates, your boss and colleagues in the office or on any of the social media, make sure it is edifying. 

God commanded us to be holy...for I am holy, says the Lord.  Every child of God in the race to heaven must a man of his word, honest and truthful person.  A man or child of God must speak the truth in his heart always and be careful not to tell lies or speak half truth.  He must know that the Lord is watching and that every idle word will be judged. 

Being holy in all manner of conversation, which is the will of God, even your sanctification, is helping believers to be mindful of the word they speaks, is with grace and the truth. 

The race to heaven is a noble one that requires everyone running to be discrete and passionate to the end.  The standards of God are not likely to change for any individual or group, so everyone in the race will be judged the same, whether you are a Preacher or a follower, the same standard will be used to judge them.  

Being holy in conversation is critical to your daily purity.  If you dwell in filthy or dirty conversation, you are not only dishonouring yourself, you are also opening multiple doors to the enemy to enter into your heart later and tempt you with those dirty jokes.  I have heard a lady speak and every one there shouted in disbelief...that this gentle looking lady could speak such dirty words. That's the result of filthy conversation over times.

If truely you are holy, have a pure heart, love God and your neighbour, your comments and words will reveal it. 

Beloved, Jesus is coming back soon.  "Where will you spend eternity - In heaven or hell"? This is the time to work-out your salvation.  Now is the acceptable time!

Repent and give your heart to Jesus. He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life.  Will you accept Him today?
