CAUTION FOR THE LAST DAYS
By DIGC21 August 2020
Beloved, your prophet determines your profit; and your pastor affects your future. Who pastors you affects where you will end in life. Remain under your God-ordained spiritual cover.
SCRIPTURE: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:25.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Remain under your God-ordained spiritual cover. Do not run up and down because not all that glitters is gold!
Yesterday, we identified three counsels for the end time. We saw that to escape the traps of the end time, we must refuse to be victims of the season, we must watch over our lives and live ready always.
Today, we shall look at some cautions for the last days.
- Forsake not the assembling together of the brethren (Hebrews 10:25).
Do not forsake the gathering together of the saints in church in these last days. The church is your “Ark of Safety”. People that were not drowned by the flood of Noah entered the ark (Genesis 7:7). In the same manner, anyone who will not be drowned in the floods of disaster in this end time must enter the Ark of God’s safety which is the church, the House of the Lord. So, don’t let any business or commitment take you away from church this season. Don’t be too busy to attend church services.
- Remain under your God-ordained spiritual cover.
Find out who your pastor is, and stay under such pastoral and spiritual cover (Ephesians 4:11-14).
God brought me in contact with my spiritual cover in the person of His servant, Bishop Oyedepo more than twenty-five years ago and I have not shifted since then. There are people who shift from following their mentor almost every season but I have refused to shift.
Beloved, your prophet determines your profit; and your pastor affects your future. Who pastors you affects where you will end in life. Remain under your God-ordained spiritual cover. Do not run up and down because not all that glitters is gold!
- Maintain a personal altar of relationship with God (Romans 8:14).
It is good to be blessed by congregational anointing but it is very critical to maintain a personal altar of relationship with God.
You should be so spiritually mature that when you find yourself in a place where you are not expected to be, the Holy Ghost can tell you, “This is not the right place. Leave this place”.
You should be able to see the manifestation of the things of the end time as you maintain fire on your altar.
- Be a person of conviction (Exodus 23:2)
Be a person of conviction and not a person of consensus. Refuse to be a person who does things because it is popular or because everyone is doing it. Refuse to be a victim of societal influence. Even though everyone is dressing naked, collecting bribe, telling lies, and living lawlessly, don’t join them. Be a person of conviction.
Many people have been destroyed because they don’t have the mind of their own. They live their lives based on what other people think, say or do. But you must make up your mind to be a person of conviction to survive the last days.
Remember this: Remain under your God-ordained spiritual cover. Do not run up and down because not all that glitters is gold!
- Make up your mind not to miss the assembly of the saints in church.
- Maintain fire on your personal altar.
- Remain under your God-ordained prophetic cover.
- Be a person of conviction.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word for me today. I receive the grace to be in the assembly of the saints, maintain the fire on my personal altar and remain a person of conviction, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
