Daily Devotional for Wednesday 16th September

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 



WEDNESDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER.


THERE ARE FALSE BRETHREN


And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage (Galatians 2:4).


The Bible tells us about these three groups: false teachers, false prophets, and false brethren. It also clearly shows us the different things they’ll do in these last days. Could there really be false brethren in churches? Absolutely! False brethren are those who come in amongst God’s people, not for their love for Jesus Christ, but for a different purpose.


Our opening verse says they come in unawares, to spy out our liberty in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage. They present a false image, in order to gain some advantage. The Bible says, “And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments…” (2 Peter 2:3 AMPC).


False brethren always look for ways to make money off other brethren. Meanwhile, they’re the ones who neither tithe nor give in church. Their goal is to make merchandise of the brethren. They can do anything for money, including betraying their Pastor, leader, or even the church. 


They’re the ones who take church matters to the public or report to the authorities or news media for pecuniary reasons. The Bible says they’re among us to spy on us, hoping to get some matter of accusation against us.


It may not be so easy to identify false brethren because of their pretentious ways. But Jesus said, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them” (Matthew 7:20). One of the identifying signs of false brethren is that they despise authority. They’ll try to convince others on why they shouldn’t believe or do everything the Pastor or leadership of the church says. If they heard you wanted to seek pastoral guidance for something personal to you, for example, they’ll ridicule the idea and make you feel you’re being naïve.


God’s counsel to us concerning false brethren is that we mark, and not associate with them, because of their corrupting influence. Many true Christians have fallen away from the Faith because of such unwholesome association. Therefore, do what the Word says: “Withdraw yourself from every brother or sister that walks disorderly” (2 Thessalonians 3:6).



PRAYER

Thank you Lord, that through the Spirit, I can identify the spirit of error and act wisely. The Word guides me in the right paths and in my relationships. I’m piloted in the direction of your perfect will and purpose for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

TALKINGSESSION 16TH SEPTEMBER.

KINDLY SAY THESE WORDS OUT LOUD.


Dear Father, thank You for calling me unto the fellowship of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Now, I can boldly declare that I am in You and You’re in me. What an honour! 


My passion and desire are to please You with my life as I do all that You’ve destined for me, knowing that in You, I have life to the full. Hallelujah. Thank You for the guidance of Your Spirit. As I speak in tongues, the eyes of my understanding are flooded with light. I don’t walk in darkness,

for I have the light of life in my spirit. With every challenge I face, Your light and wisdom well up within me, showing me precisely what to do, how to do them, and when to do them.


 I am inseparably one with Christ, for in Him I live, move, and have my being! My inseparable oneness with Him makes me supernatural, impregnable to sickness, disease, and infirmity.


No matter what comes my way, I’m bold and fearless! I speak wisdom, yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world that come to nought, but divine wisdom; it’s heard in my words and seen in my actions. 


And as I affirm the Word, it prevails and catapults me to a greater and brighter future with higher levels of success, victory, and prosperity, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!





God bless you

DATE: WEDNESDAY, 16TH SEPTEMBER, 2020.

TOPIC: CHOOSE YOUR COMPANY WISELY

MEMORISE
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” - (2 Corinthians 6:14)

READ: Psalm 26:4-5 (KJV)

4. I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

5. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

MESSAGE

You can attract blessings just by being around the right people. Likewise, it is possible to pick up curses by being in the wrong company. That is why the Psalmist said in Psalms 26:4-5
“I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”

Some time ago, I travelled abroad for a crusade and noted the absence of a particular son of mine who was ill at the time. I went to the hospital and while praying for him, I felt the power of God come down mightily. The next day, I got a report that not only had my son been healed and discharged, but also everyone else in the ward. They got their healing just because they shared the same ward with my son.

Who you associate with has a great influence on what you attract. This is why you must be friends with good Christians. Search for people who are wiser than you and be their friends. Proverbs 13:20 says:
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

Don’t stay in the midst of gossips or people jesting about their sinful acts. If you find yourself among those smoking and drinking, leave immediately.

Always choose your partners and associates carefully. Partner with genuine children of God. If the person carries the blessings of God, you can be sure that your project(s) will be blessed. When you are in business with one who is suggesting you cut corners, give bribes or cheat, break such relationships because that fellow will invite the devil into your enterprise.

God commands us to love our neighbour as ourselves, not that everyone must be our friend. We must choose our friends wisely. Keep your associations pure.

ACTION POINT
Dissociate yourself from every ungodly friend today.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Daniel 10 - 12

HYMNAL:
HYMN 20 - NEARER, MY GOD TO THEE

1. Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E'en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee, (2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

2. Though, like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee, (2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

3. There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou send'st to me
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee, (2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

4. Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I'll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee, (2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

5. Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee, (2ce)
Nearer to Thee!
