True Gospel: Empty talk spoken in tongues
True Gospel with SAVIOUS-PARKER KWINIKA
FATHERS, mothers, brothers and sisters, listen to me very carefully for the Kingdom of Jehovah God is within us.
Jehovah God lives in His heavenly throne yet his force – which is the Holy Spirit, angels and Jesus Christ- is always with us.
According to the book of Psalm, in 145:18, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”
Now, the reason why we pray day and night without getting any responses from the Almighty Jehovah God is because we don’t really know how to pray.
Fellow believers, I beg you to stop idolising people at the expense of God through His son Jesus Christ.
Many believers, whenever they gather, don’t pray to draw closer to Jehovah God, but shout loudly to show off their ability to speak in tongues.
But a closer look into some of those tongues, one would agree most of them, especially from emerging Pentecostal churches, are recited solely for the purposes of showing off.
Matthew 6:8 captures this perfectly when Jesus dissuades his disciples from bragging.
“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”
The New Living Translation reads: “Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!”
Such people memorise their tongues, speak the same issue repeatedly and aloud for show off.
Usually, such prayers do not come from believers’ hearts but are driven by the ego to prove they can speak in tongues. They recite fake tongues.
Prayer is neither empty ritual nor a means of gaining something.
Our prayers must be directed only to Jehovah God. Nothing else. He is the author and finisher of our lives and so deserves to be worshipped by you and I.
Jehovah God always invites us to come into a peaceful relationship with Him.
Isaiah 1:18 backs my True Gospel, “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool,” while the English Standard Version reads: “Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”
Now, when we lack a clue how to pray, usually such prayers do not go far! Jehovah God does not receive such prayers.
No matter how much you show off in tongues, if you sin daily, commit adultery, rumour mongering, engage in lying, unfaithful, greedy for money in cases of some churches, lazy and disobedience, and sometimes being ignorant of the word of Jehovah God, the Almighty remains silent in your life.
According to Psalm 73:28: “But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.”
The same verse in the New Living Translation states: “But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.”
The English Standard Version reads: “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”
What is terrifying these days is that some believers, despite sinning everyday, are taught in their assemblies that through giving, they will always be heard by Jehovah God.
The devil is definitely in control of this planet earth but those that with eyes to see will never be deceived.
Fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, I have an answer for you. Giving is a biblical principle Jesus gave us. The secret about giving is simple. When you give, it shall be given back to you. If you don’t give, don’t expect to receive from others – simple!
When you love others, they will also love you. If you do not love, do not expect to be loved back, whether you pray and fast or speak heavily in tongues of any kind.
This is why Jesus was not blessing people without anything in their lives.
Jesus would ask what they had before he would bless them. The reason we miss blessings is the tendency to give church pastors only, bishops and their wives without applying the same principle to each and every human being.
According to Matthew 14:17, Jesus only fed the 5 000 simply because they had five loaves and two fish.
“We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” reads the scripture.
The New Living Translation reads: “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish,” while the English Standard Version states, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.”
More-so, we should know how to pray in order to draw closer to God.
Drawing close to God is not easy because we live among people who lack faith in God and ridicule his promise of peace on earth.
A major reason for approaching Jehovah is to ensure we have close or personal relationship with Him. Some believers today have sacrificed their relationships with their creator Jehovah God in favour of pastors and their church leaders.
Yes, love one another, not only pastors and their spouses.
The source of blessings must be Jehovah God through Jesus Christ, who died for us all on the cross.
Our prayers must always be directed to Him.
According to 2 Timothy 3:1, we are forewarned that there shall be terrible times on earth hence praying to avert such sufferings both spiritually and physically.
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.”
The New Living Translation states, “You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times,” while the English Standard Version states: “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.”
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS?
For us to draw close to Jehovah God, we must always associate with people who love God. The more we associate with them and reading the bible, the more we draw closer to God.
We can draw close to Jehovah God by meditating on the word. Reading the word of Jehovah God supported by prayer, supplication and meditation boosts our link to Jehovah God’s love and wisdom.
Joshua 1:8 reads: “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
The New Living Translation says: “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”
The English Standard Version states: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
The bible further teaches us in Psalm 1:1: “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.”
The New Living Translation reads: “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.”
You can also be close to God only if you trust in him, if you have faith in him. But faith is like a living thing that needs feeding. You must constantly feed your faith by reviewing the basis for your beliefs.
According to Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
The New Living Translation reads: “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR DRAWING CLOSER TO JEHOVAH GOD?
When we draw closer to Jehovah God through prayer and supplication, we are bound to enjoy some benefits.
Those benefits include being taken care of by Jehovah God Himself. We are also assured of safety and protection.
Most importantly, Jehovah warns us against ways of life that threaten our health, joy and happiness.
According to Psalm 91:1, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
The same verse in the New Living Translation reads: “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty,” while the English Standard Version states: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”
Those who believe this True Gospel, say Amen.
