Learn from the “Wiser Children…”

 1 Thessalonians 2:13

    “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”

Luke 16:8

    “And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.”

Students burn candles throughout the night, reading the textbook/manual for a course in order to make an A/A+, But believers(children of light) will never burn candle throughout the night, reading the Bible for a course(trials 301, tribulation 402, temptation 505) in order to make an A/A+.

Most will rather be waiting on His Grace and Mercy just like some lazy students do; Not studying to pass, believing the professor who is their father, will pass them.

(At least you will even still have to write something down which the professor – your father, can work with in inflating your marks. Abi no be so?)

 Mark 4:15

    “And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.”

2 Timothy 2:15

    “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

 

 

Luke 4:36

    “And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.”

1 Thessalonians 1:5    

    For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

People follow the Doctor’s prescription to a ‘tee’ but Believers(children of light) doubt GOD’s prescriptions or follow it to a stage that is convenient enough for them.

Ecclesiastes 8:4 

Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?

Jeremiah 29:11-13

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

 Luke 10:19

    Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Romans 2:11-15

“For there is no respect of persons with God.

For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)”

Extreme cases of illnesses are always referred to the highest authorities in the health sector. In the “children of light” sector, the extreme cases are referred to ‘certified’ Men not the ‘highest authority (GOD). Imagine having a personal relationship with Ben Carson and then going to meet one of his mentees or worker to help separate conjoined twins or treat a spinal disorder.

 Mark 15:37-39

37) And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.

38) And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

39) And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

 Matthew 13:22    

    “He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.”

 

 Matthew 4:19

    “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Marketers(workers) in companies are corporately and neatly dressed when going for marketing, believing the cloth itself is marketing them. And they market with all enthusiasm and convictions.

Most ‘Marketers'(workers) in GOD’s company dress shabbily, some dress like they are mourning, some dress like the people(in the market) they are marketing to. Most will just give out the tracts, not bothering to say anything or find out if the person is literate enough to read, some will recite all what they’ve been told to tell the soul, praying the soul doesn’t ask any question because they’ve not studied well enough.

2 Timothy 2:15

    “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

If a person was told to prepare to take some students on addition and subtraction in Maths and that person knows fully well it’s been long he/she did anything on that, he/she will quickly get the textbook for that cadre of students(even read further) and study so as to be able to answer any question asked, right?

The Believer knows He/She is going to evangelize and doesn’t study or prepare towards it, how then does the believer want to be able to answer any ‘tough’ question asked?

Even the Holy Spirit who is supposed to teach you all things(using the WORD) can’t find any WORD in you to start His lecture with.

1 Corinthians 1:20

    Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

# A business man will always look at what his toughest competitor is using to best him and either use the same strategy in a better way OR look for a strategy that will best his competitors own.

N.B: Concerning winning of souls for the Kingdom of GOD, the devil is our toughest competitor. He bombards us with all sorts of trials and tribulations – sickness, lust of the flesh, besetting sins, sorrow, poverty, etc while he is busy with his cohorts getting in more souls into his own kingdom.

Lets start watching out for his tactics and strategies and either use it in a better way for the Kingdom of GOD OR work to get a better one that will best his and enable us win much more souls, even getting back some he has stolen from us (even if it has to resort to paying believers to go and evangelize, the more souls preached to, the more money).

Lets not forget that everything now is going “e” . Internet is now the order of the day(which the devil is making most use of). You can’t evangelize face-to-face? then call, text, e-mail, broadcast it on social network(FB, Twitter, Whatsapp, 2go, Instagram, Google+, Blog, Web, etc.

May God in His infinite mercy strengthen us and also open up our ears to hear and eyes to see in Jesus name.

Shalom!
