Just remembered what normally happens then, during growing up stage.
Anytime I broke the plate, damaged an electronic device or have offended my dad before he left for work and have been promised cane when he gets back, I won’t go to the dinning room when everyone is eating during dinner so he wouldn’t see me and remember(some of those times, you might not even get hungry and if you are, you would have told your brother/sister not to finish his/her food). Or I will go and stay in the toilet and be forming ‘i am purging or go and hide somewhere when He starts calling.
Did it happen to you too?
This is just what happens that causes most believers to cheat themselves.
Instead of eating from the bounty placed on the table, with their Father, they would rather stay under the table and feed on crumbs or leftovers from their fellow brethren while Some would rather go and hide than to be seen.
This is just the way it is happening to believers in Christendom. Luke 12:43-48
Some, due to their disobedience cannot join the Father on the table to eat (Luke 12:47-48), they will rather ask those eating with the Father on the table to remain food for them (their words are like this;”pray for me sir, heal me sir, deliver me sir, It’s you i look to sir” etc…) rather than go and ask the Father for forgiveness, receive punishment if there is any and jejely sit down at the table to eat.(Matt 15:26-27)
Some, due to their foolishness(after hearing the Word, backslides, and refuses to repent – Galatians 5:19-21) will rather go and hide in the toilet or wherever, rather than come and face the punishment and be able to eat with the Father on the table, because they know the secret sins they are involved in which they are still enjoying. (2 Peter 1:9, Isaiah 59:1-2;3-15, Hebrews 10:26).
Some of these ones too asks the ones eating with the Father to give them out of their food.(their words are like this;”pray for me sir, heal me sir, deliver me sir,It’s you i look to sir” etc…) while the others don’t care, they are just in the house because that’s where they grew up [in church to mark attendance (A way of life, ‘go to work mon-fri, party/club on saturday, church on Sunday)], when it gets “too strict” (thinking – “this Man’s own sef is too much”) for their likening, they pack out and move into their friend’s house (devil – the world) 2 Corinth 11:14, John 8:14, 1 Tim 5:15, Rev 2:9
It’s a pity that most believers in this cadre still believes they are connected to God (thinking – He is a merciful God, he’s able to forgive me BUT they are still sinning, still at their ‘friend’s house’) but are not.
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
Those eating at the table with the Father are the ‘Heavenly’ anointed Men/Women of God(who are wise, they obey so as to get the ‘good of the land’, so as to be able to get a pat on the head at the end of the day). Matt 13:23, Luke 12:43-44, John 3:21, 1 John 2:10.
If you read Matt 27:51, Mark 15:38, Luke 23:45 with a divine understanding, you will know that when Jesus died on the cross and the veil tore, it gave everyone EQUAL ACCESS to the presence of God. No need to tie a rope around a priest (Pastor) and send him in again (which most believers – in the ‘disobedience’ and some in the ‘foolishness’ hierarchy are still doing).
1 Corinth 3:4-21
4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
There is equality in God’s kingdom – Gal 3:26-28, Ezekiel 18:25; 33:17, Philippians 2:6, 2 Corinth 8:12-14, James 1:17. We are the architects of our misfortunes……*sighs*
You know now, so you better start repenting so that this Words won’t stand against you on ‘that day’.
