PRAISES, THE GOOD THING

“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High”
Psalm 92:1KJV

➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Glory and honor be unto the Alpha and Omega God for his wonderful love and protection through last month. God richly bless all readers, doers and sharers of this devotional.

There’s nothing God will deny a thankful, praising soul; every desire of his heart will be fulfilled. Even meditating on the beauty and sovereignty of the Lord alone opens the vestibule of heaven. There’s a garment of praise that every christian must daily wear forever: God God inherit His praise here and in heaven. God is to be praised anytime anywhere by those who recognizes His hands in their lives.

If you really believes that God loves you, then He deserves your praise. In all circumstances, He is worthy of thanks. You do not realize what your worship means to Him. The little weak praise of a holy Saint to God availed much.

The good thing is to praise the Lord; yes, it’s a good thing to thank Him. Your soul is healed through thanksgiving. You receive the heavenly joy of the Lord which is your strength. Why won’t you praise the Lord today? Oh raise high your heart and sing a godly song unto the Lord. Don’t undermine your praises to God. He loves you and will dearly accept it if only you do it wholeheartedly in holiness. Yes, enter the Lord’s heart singing praises.

PRAYER: I praise you Lord Jesus. Great is thy faithfulness. Who is like unto thee, there’s none besides thee oh Lord.
AMEN

WOMEN’S ADORNMENT

LACK OF KNOWLEDGE………. HOSEA 4:6

The word of God says that lack of knowledge my people perish (Hosea 4:6).Ignorance is leading so many people to destruction (hell). Many Christians do not know what SIN really is. Sin simply means missing the set mark of GOD. The word of GOD (Bible) and the spirit of GOD are the only ways that tells us the commandment of GOD. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17).The question is how many times do you read your bible? The basic needs of man are: food, clothing and shelter with the knowledge of GOD. Having these basic needs is not sin but how you came by these things determines whether sin is or not. The track is about adornment of women.

Mothers and sisters, it is very sad but the truth is many Christian women who die on earth go to hell because of their dressing. The bible speaks against worldliness. The LORD through his loving kindness is revealing to so many people all over the world about the things that are sending a lot of people including Christians to the hell which include women adornment and as it is written in 1John 2:15 which says “love not the world, neither the things of the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. Some of these adornments include: ornaments (earrings, nose ring, wedding rings, beads, pearls and all kinds of jewels), any pills, palmed, lotion, soap, tubs, use in toning or bleaching the natural colour of your skin, artificial hair Brazilian, Mongolian, Indian, animal (horse), weave-on, wigs, dread locks, twisting of the natural hair, perming, using chemicals and relaxes to change the natural state of your hair etc. All kinds of makeup, powder, lip stick, lip gloss, lip balm, mascara, eye lash, artificial nails, wearing of trousers or short nikas, legens, skinny, under nika, tattoo, short nikas, short skirt, sensual (sexy) cloth, short dress that do not go beyond the kneel when seated, transparent see me through all kinds of wordily cloth that exposes your breast and parts of the body are sinful before JESUS CHRIST. Your body is the temple of GOD. Also if any women defile the temple she shall be destroy (hell) 1cor 3:16, 2cor 3:16-17, 2cor 6:16, Rom 12:1-2.
Gen 3: 7-21 after eating the forbidding fruit, their eyes were opened and saw they were naked. Adam and Eve sew fig leaves and made themselves APRONS (what the women use in cooking) as clothes but GOD Killed a sheep and covered their nakedness and shame with the skin.

Do not put on trousers? Or nika Deut 22:5 because it is an abomination. Trousers are pattern designed for men (Priest) by GOD in Exo 28:2s4, Lev 6:10. Also I Tim 2:9-10 and 1Pet 3:3-5 women adorn themselves in modest apparel with shame fadedness and sobriety and peter says the women of old Sarah, Hannah, Jael, Zeporah, Miriam, and Mary etc, covered their nakedness in the fear and the knowledge of GOD and submitted in humility meekness to their husbands and leaders which in the sight of GOD a great price. And NOT with gold, rings earrings, rings, bracelet, chains that bring pride and arrogance BUT GOOD WORKS in the church and home. Do you cover your hair when praying? Reading your bible? , Ministering in the church and even at home 1Cor 11:1-15. Gen 1:31, GOD saw eve in her natural state and saw she was good. Every hole a women need in her body was created by GOD. Do you think GOD forgot to pierce a hole in your ear? Do you think wearing of earring makes you different from man? how did Adam get to know Eve was a woman? , or how are mothers able to know the sex (male or female) of their newly born babies? Where in the Bible is it stated that wedding rings (wedding bands) must be given as symbol for marriage? Hmmmm. *LACK OF KNOWLEDGE*…….

The women in Jacob’s household brought their earrings as (idol) and gods to Jacob at Sechem, Before they went to worship GOD at Bethel. That made the presence of GOD to come among them and HIS fear to their enemies at Gen 35:1-5. Also GOD commanded the Israelites to remove and never to put on ornament (Jewels) in Exo 33:4-5 and only to pierce the Hebrew men and women who choose to be servant (slaves) forever In Deut 15:12-17. Isa 3:16-26 states the judgment of GOD upon women that put on these things. Are you an Ishmaelite read Judge 8:24?
The first woman that used make-up in the Bible was called JESEBEL. 2kings 9:30, 7-10 when Jehu was sent to kill her, Jezebel painted (make-up) her face and tired her hair to seduce him into committing fornication, JESUS said in revelation 2:20-25 that the church has allowed Jezebel spirit that call herself prophetess of Baal to seduce his servant to commit fornication and to eat food sacrifice to idols. That woman was cursed by JESUS IN 2KINGS 9:30-37 she was killed (in the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel). All women that follow her teachings are daughters of her and will be curse with sickness and death (hell).
Do you know you are causing men to lust after you Luke 17:1-12? Gen 1:31 GOD created Eve and she was good in her natural state in the sight of GOD, are you in your natural state not for fashion but for JESUS? Many women of GOD, very powerful in miracles and winning souls for our LORD are in hell because of these things. It makes you filthy and naked in the sight of GOD. Like the woman (the great whore) in Rev 17:1-5 arrayed (dress) in purple and scarlet colour and decked with gold, precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hands full of abomination and filthiness of her fornication.

This is not about church doctrine or any Pastor, Pastor’s wife but about YOUR ETERNITY. Do not follow the multitude to do evil. Ex 23:2 our LORD is not a GOD of modernity, He is holy and without holiness no man will see the LORD. Heb 12:14. Ask the Lord for forgiveness of sin and *STOP!!! NOW*, because time is running out. Love your soul and not your flesh. Proverbs 31:31. Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain but the women that fear the LORD, she shall be praise.
[JOHN 14:15, 1Tim. 3:12]

REPENT OR GO TO HELL

IS THE SCRIPTURES OPENED TO YOU?

“And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?”
Luke 24:32KJV
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Intimacy with Christ Jesus has the tendency of changing us into His image. The scripture is the Word of God and the Word is Christ. The key to the Bible is Christ. Many read the Bible but do not understand because they haven’t any relationship with the one whom they’re learning about. They just explain it like any other book. They read it like newspaper, and cannot comprehend anything in it. And even when the Truth is expatiated unto them by someone who has intimacy with the Truth, they don’t accept it, for their hearts have not yet burn within them.

The Bible says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” 2Tim. 3:16. The scripture is given by the Holy Spirit. Your heart will never remain cold when Christ explain His words to you; for it will be set ablaze, it will burn within you so much that you’ll be left with nothing less than obedience.

The disciples who were going to the village of Emmaus walked with Jesus before He opened His words to them. Are you walking with JESUS? Does your heart burn when you hear His words? Is the scriptures opened unto you? None can explain the Word of God to you so vividly as the one who is the Word Himself.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
PRAYER: Open my eyes to your Words, Lord Jesus and let my heart burn in love for you in your name I pray.
AMEN

THE FREE LOVE

“I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.”
Hosea 14:4KJV
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
The love of God is such that it’s beyond human comprehension. God loves sinners but abhors sins. The love of God in the life of a penitent sinner deepens when he acknowledges his sins, confesses and forsakes them. It’s never the will of God for any human to face His fierce judgement and end up in Hell.

The free love of God is very classy. It’s unconditional. God loves you because He is love. None deserve to be loved by God but He loves us all. Everyone is worthy of God’s love. God freely gave his only begotten Son to manifest His free love to mankind. His anger is turned away from those who believe in His dear Son— Christ Jesus.

Beloved, if God freely loves you, then what ought you do? Won’t you also love Him in return? How painful it is to love someone and the person doesn’t show any sign of loving you. He said, “If you love me, keep my commandments”.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
PRAYER: Thank you Father for loving me. Please help me love you by obeying your words in Jesus’ name.
AMEN

CHRIST IS TO BE CHERISHED

“What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?”
Song of Sol. 5:9KJV

➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
The confidence that the bride of Christ has in her beloved is so incomparable to any other. The excellencies of the beloved—Christ Jesus, supersedes all. There is something in Him that none other have it. The power of His love is so powerful to illuminate souls to fall in love with Him. And once your heart truly falls for him, you long for him diligently, seek him passionately, and cleave to him dearly.

Our verse today is a question that the daughters of Jerusalem asked the Bride when she sought for him. They were desiring to know what the bride has seen in Christ that she is so much into him and searching for him. So they queried, _”what’s in your beloved that makes him so different from the others? What have you seen in him which the others don’t have that you should pant and search for him this way? Why do you love him more than anyone or anything?_

There are glowing beauties and outstanding qualities in Christ that none other have it. Therefore, He is to be cherished more than anything. Have you yet encounter Christ? Have you seen His loving face and amiable disposition? If others ask you about the excellency of Christ Jesus, will you be able to vividly expatiate to them? What are you telling others about Christ? Do you even know Him personally? Are you ready to describe Him to others now?
*It’s one thing accepting Christ and quiet another knowing and cherishing him.*
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
*PRAYER:* Thank you Lord Jesus for your love and mercy. Please help me to know and encounter you all the days of my life in your name I pray.
*AMEN*

CHRIST, MY BELOVED

“His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
Song of Sol. 5:16KJV

➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
The bride, with regards to what the daughters of Jerusalem queried her and in answer to that, showed them she is very proud of Christ. She lovingly and vividly described Him to them in a most intimate way, for she was acquainted with Him and knew Him in a familiar way. His name is the sweetest name she knows on earth. He is the only love she has in this world. Her heart is for Him, she has dedicated her whole life to the obedience of His words.

The bride was able to describe Christ Jesus because she had an intimate relationship with Him in a most endearing way: His mouth is sweet, his voice is charming, his eloquence is magnificent; His words are sweeter than honey and anything in this world. He is altogether lovely than anyone on this earth. There is none she desires to live with apart from Him. Others can love the world and be moved by the things of it, her heart isn’t in anywhere than her beloved. Christ is who she loves and will spend her life with. Even death can’t do her and Christ part. For death will usher her to the kingdom of her beloved in heaven.

Lovely child of God, can you also describe Christ like this? Are you living your life for Him? Where is your heart? Is he your friend? Are you sharing your love with Him? Do you even cherish His words?
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
*PRAYER:* I know you love me, Lord Jesus. Please help me love and live for you.
*AMEN*

AWAKE O YOU THAT SLUMBER!

“I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”
Song of Sol 5:2KJV
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Praise the Lord! We thank the Lord for ushering us into a new month. And God bless all those who involve themselves in this devotional.

The book of the song of Solomon is an allegory between Christ and His church — the Bride. The bride is very dear to the bridegroom. In today’s verse, the bride had fallen asleep by various reasons. She, like the ten virgins, slumbered and slept, but her heart was awake by reason of the voice of her beloved, Christ Jesus. She knew His voice and was acquainted with it. Christ didn’t reprove her of her slumber but bestowed endearing tittles upon her saying, “Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled”.

He called her undefiled even in her slumber because of His own righteousness on her. Christ call sinners into a covenant and saints into communion with Him. Saints who are espoused to Him are being called to intimacy with Him. He knocks at the heart of all his brides into a lovely and healthy relationship that neither death nor principalities nor angels nor afflictions can separate it.

The Lord called and apprised her of how He suffered for her on that rugged cross; he bore her pains, took her place and wore her shame to pay her dowry. He awaked her from sleep for his head was filled with dew — the blood that oozed from the crown of thorns on his head.
“Wherefore he saith, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.” (Eph. 5:14)
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
PRAYER: Glory be unto you Father, for your love and mercy. Please keep me awake and help me be part of the five wise virgins in Jesus’ name.
AMEN
