TOPIC: WHY YOU MUST LISTEN AND CHANGE NOW

TEXT: Job 33:14-22
*MEMORY VERSE:And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient {Romans 1:28} *MESSAGE:The Almighty God, seen many of the people He created in His image and likeness blindly falling into pits frankly expressed His mind emphatically through prophet Hosea saying, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. And He furtherly said, because His people rejected His knowledge, He also would reject them, and even abandon their children- Hosea 4:6. Nobody, I mean no person God doesn’t speak to warn or stop from living in error. Whenever a man is about to indulge in any evil, sinful or dirty life which is against the knowledge {holy scripture} God engraved down for us to live by, there’s always a whispering voice which slowly tells the fellow not. But when the person refuses to take heed, the voice would seize. Then the louder voice which is the voice of the devil takes over the mind of that fellow. That evil voice can be so comforting and encouraging. It will give you several reasons, points and instances why you should go ahead with the wrong step you want to take. This wrong encouraging voice would give you several examples of other persons who did, or is doing the same which things are still going well for. Why? Because, the major battle the devil is out for is to see we the creatures offending our Creator. It gives him joy. When a man is living erroneous life that can easily drives man to the destruction of his soul, the Devil wouldn’t let that person think that a ‘time of backfire’ will ever come. Isaiah 30:21 says “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it..” Did you hear that statement? Your ears shall hear ‘just a word’. Not two or more words, nor even a sentence or a statement. God doesn’t speak or warns on an issue much. He isn’t a talkative. That word might just be ‘stop, go, don’t, or go ahead’ and it ends there. Verse 14th of today’s Bible passage says when God speak once, man hears it twice. It’s the echoing of His voice that doubles the voice that makes it sounds twice. When He warns on a particular wrong life one is indulged in a little while, and the fellow continues, He stops. The next thing that happens to that folk is divine abandonment. That’s when you see some persons who gradually started little sinful life go into it in full force as time goes on. Because the devil will so police the person till his, or her destruction comes. That’s what our memory verse mean by “And even as they didn’t like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over [gave up on them]” to continue living in erroneous life. Because God vowed in Genesis 6:3, that His Spirit would no longer strive to force any human out of any life he or she choose to live again. My brothers, sisters and friends, do yourself good, stop that erroneous life now before the day of ‘had I know comes’! Receive grace!
PRAYERS:
Lord Jesus, help me, save my soul from this wagon of destruction I am in.
WONDERFUL AND SAFE WEEK IN JESUS NAME!
