The words of God are the truth but human beings are not truthful. Many people see and know the truth but refuse to say the truth.
Some people believe what they say is the truth but it is actually untrue verse versa. A lot of people are not honest and courageous to say the truth. The Bible says everybody has failed and this is pointed out in Psalm 130:3.
“If you Lord should mark iniquities O Lord who could stand?“ This implies that everybody is guilty and sinful. There is a thing in everybody’s life that is sinful. Imagine a person will abuse another person using that person’s shortcoming to do so forgetting that he or she has his or her own shortcomings.
Therefore many people are not honest and truthful. People betray God in one way or the other even themselves.
Some men are pursing wives of other men.
Similarly some women do it. A lot of rich people donate huge some of money to churches and mosques and if the sources of the money are not clean, then the money is not accepted by God. It is only the Pastor and the congregation that would appreciate and thank the donor.
The donor can only receive goodness from the congregation because they do not know the source of the money. There is no record of such money and appreciation of the congregation in heaven.
People that receive bribes to prevent normal course or procedure to prevail inflict injuries death on others have committed sin.
For instance those that are responsible to control and prevent the influx of fake drugs into the country should receive bribe and allow the drugs to enter the markets realising that taking the drugs would cause death of people.
Then the giver and receiver of the bribe are guilty and sinned before God because the bribe money is already stained and unacceptable by God. These kinds of people would not be honoured in heaven. In recent time many government pensioners lost their in course of collecting their pension funds.
They were invited to come and collect their pension fund but they were shocked when they informed them no fund was forthcoming. In fact this incidence led to collapse and death of some pensioners.
It was revealed later that some govt officials had embezzled the fund meant for the pensioners inflicting agony and pains on elderly people.
If the people that caused the problems for the pensioners now donates such money to the churches or mosques then they are in danger, they will not be honoured in heaven and God will always be by the side of the oppressed.
The Bible says in Proverb 22 verse 22 – 23 “ Do not rob the poor because he is poor. Nor oppress the afflicted at the gate. For the Lord will plead their cause…”
Some people make others to commit sins and they are always serving God diligently and work in the church. Some ladies seduce Pastors and men of God and make them to fall before. They have commited great sin.
Also some members of the same church would lure other members to herbalists and eventually destroy their lives.
Some years ago a man came to me, he was a captain of a fishing trawler. He was jobless and I prayed for him and did some spiritual work for him and things changed for better for him.
Unfortunately a member of the church took him and the wife to a herbalist where all he had was destroyed and his life. In fact he stopped coming to church again and was avoiding me.
But I sent some people to him when revealed to me that he was toying the path of destruction, he did not heed the message of God. Eventually he and the wife died in a ghastly motor accident on his way back to Lagos.
Brethren what would happen to the person that misled him to embrace Satan.Imagine the person that misled him to leave did not leave the church.
I implore people that know and acknowledge they have perpetrated one evil or other to retrace their steps and docorrection. Let people heed this message because the Bible says in James verse 22 “ But be doer of the word, and not hearer only, deceiving yourselves…”
