RCCG OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR AUGUST 14, 2022 (LETTER TO THE THYATIRAN CHURCH 2)
TOPIC: LETTER TO THE THYATIRAN CHURCH 2
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” – (Matthew 18:6)
READ: Revelation 2:20-23 (KJV)
In our Bible reading today, Jesus tells us what will happen to Jezebel if she does not repent. There are many people in the body of Christ now, talking about old-fashioned Christianity. They say some of the things which form the foundations of living a Christian life are no longer necessary and we can do things differently and still remain Christians. They say as long as your heart is in tune with God, it does not matter how you dress, it is the heart that matters.
They forget that it is what is in the heart that will reflect outside. They say you can have intimate friends who are sinners as long as you do not join them in committing sins. They forget that it is evil communication that corrupts good manners. If you are one of those encouraging people to be a little slack with their Christian life so that they can enjoy some of the benefits of this world, you are a Jezebel. How can you say there is something like old-fashioned Christianity when Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)?
There is nothing like old-fashioned or modern Christianity. Christianity is about becoming like Jesus. Any doctrine or teaching that encourages a mixture with the world system is not Christianity at all, it is the doctrine of Jezebel. Stop teaching, tolerating or encouraging it.
God said He will punish Jezebel by confining her to a bed. Many people develop some stubborn sicknesses without knowing that the root is from God Himself. Unless they repent, they will die from the sickness and not only them but their children also. Jesus said in Matthew 18:7;
Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! You had better be careful what you teach the children of God so that you don’t end up being cursed by God Himself.
There is no old-fashioned Christianity; always teach the undiluted word of God When given the opportunity.
