Word From The Father
If you embarked on an important journey and you’ve really travelled a far distance until you suddenly discovered that the route you took would land you in a wrong destination, what would you do? You would turn back to where you started your journey. Unless you want to end up in a wrong destination, that’s the only way you’ll continue that journey. Though you’ve wasted time, money, energy, you’ll surely turn back to start your journey afresh. This is how I want all My children to behave. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Owner of Heaven and Earth. I Am the Creator. I Am the Journey and if you want to come to Me, you must take pass through the right route.
If you leave your house to buy something in the market, no matter how late it is, you’ll not sleep there. And if you take ten-thousand steps to the market, how many steps will you take back to your house? The same ten-thousand! Yes, many of you have been in the church for many years, yet, you don’t know you’re on the wrong route. The route you’ve taken will land you in a wrong destination. If you suddenly realised you’re on the wrong route, going back becomes a big problem for you because you’re worried of what other church members will say. “Oh, look at Deacon Andrew, so he’s on the wrong route; but he’s been in this church for thirty years; he even led the church service in the absence of our Pastor; may God save us.” You don’t want people to speak against you and you continue the journey that will land you in a wrong destination. This is the kind of life many of you are living inside the church. Is anything hidden from Me?
You are in the church and you gave birth to all your children in the church, yet, the life you live is worse than those who just gave their lives to Jesus Christ yesterday. But everybody respects you because you’re a leader in the church. Will your position earn you a crown in Heaven? Though it may earn you a crown, only if you walk in the path of holiness. You are a Deacon, you will defraud people; all manner of atrocities full your hands both physically and spiritually, yet, everybody respects you because of your position in the church? I ask you again: Will your position earn you a crown in Heaven if you don’t do it well? I Am the Almighty God and I Am not a partial God. Your work will be tested with fire and if the fire consumes your work, you know what that means.
If you’re a student in the university, you can bribe your way through until you graduate. The lecturer may be your father or uncle. The vice chancellor may even be your father. He can use his influence to push you through. Heaven is not like that! They don’t show anybody mercy. Your work alone will judge you. Your work will lead you to where you belong. But unfortunately, I don’t see any of you coming to Heaven because of the kind of life you’re living. I Am Omnipresent God and I Am right beside you while you’re living your life. You cannot deceive Me and you cannot cajole Me. None of you is higher or greater than Me. All of you are My children whom I rejected because of sin. But I still love you, this was why I sent My Son to redeem your soul. This same love pushes Me into speaking to you right now. I Am a Spirit and not flesh. I want you to trace your footstep back to Me. You’re lost! Come back before it’s too late. You still have life in you. You still have strength in you. Start coming back before you lose your breathe. No matter how far you wandered away from Me, you must also be patient and walk back to Me. Take no shortcut. Take the same route that misled you straight back to Me. Then I will accept you.
If you booked a flight from London to San Francisco in California, but the aircraft took you to Houston in Texas, will you settle for it? When you booked your flight, you also booked for the hotel. That’s not all, you have an important business meeting to attend. Will you settle for Houston in Texas? You will definitely find your way to San Francisco in time. The journey to the Father has only one route, yet, many Christians are on the wrong route and they don’t even realise it.
The Bible says in the Book of Psalms 119:67 that, “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word.” You cannot keep the Word of the Father if you’re far away from Him. You can only keep His Word if you’re near to Him. If you near to Him, He’ll instruct you. If He doesn’t instruct you, how can you keep His Word? The Bible says in the Book of Isaiah 59:1-3 that, “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear.” But why? “For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity.” If you live in sin, you’re multiple times far from your Creator. But to make your way back to Him, you must walk back slowly until you get to where you missed it. You’re the one that walked far away from Him, He’s right where you left Him.
The Bible says in the Book of Proverbs 8:17 that, “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me.” Jesus Christ called in the Book of Matthew 11:28-30 that, “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Jesus declared in the Book of Mark 8:38 and Luke 9:26 that, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." You cannot value the words of people around you by failing to go back to the Father. If you don’t want people to mock or ridicule you and you continue on the wrong journey, you’ll definitely land in a wrong destination. Jesus Christ wasn’t ashamed when He went to the cross. He was crucified for you naked. Therefore, you must close your ears to every word anybody may speak and make your way back. It’s not too late while you’re alive. It’s too late when death envelopes you to the life beyond. I pray for you today that Jehovah God will have mercy upon you as you trace your footstep back to Him in Jesus name. Amen!
My Task For Today
1) I will ask for mercy for straying away from the Father.
2) I will make haste to go back to the Father so that He can accept me back.
3) I will diligently wait and listen to the Father’s instructions before setting out again.
My Prayers For Today
1) Jesus Christ my Saviour, I know you were crucified naked for me. Have mercy upon me and cleanse me with Your blood as I naked myself before you this day.
2) O Lord, take away every worry of this world away from me so that I can remain focus in this journey.
3) Almighty God, may my ears remain open to your instructions.
4) Holy Spirit, be the Leader of my life and take hold of my heart completely and use it as You please in Jesus name. Amen!
May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
