WHEN THE ADVANTAGE BECOMES DISADVANTAGE
Technological innovations and advancements are supposed to be advantages to us,
They make things so easy with speed.
They make life more comfortable,
They show a revolving world and an advancing world.
The advantage has become a disadvantage
There is a mass decline and reduction in power amongst the younger generations compare to the father despite the so called advantages.
We have the gadgets that should make the gospel easy but it appears as if they have become a disadvantage to us.
Who is crying saying SOCIAL MEDIA
PLEASE DON’T EAT UP MY SECRET PLACE?
WHO IS GROANING FOR TIME TO BE ALONE WITHOUT DISTRACTIONS?
The difference between the older generations and us is that they don’t have the distractions that we have, so they could focus. But guess what, God Will not give you anointing and say because you have distraction I will give you the anointing just like that, my brother the price is the same, and the price is called TIME IN THE SECRET PLACE ALONE.
You can hardly pray without checking watsap or Instagram to see what is happening
When are you going to concentrate fully?, Remember God is a jealous God
I didn’t know it has gotten so bad, until recently I discovered that all the scriptures I knew via diligent studying by concordance, I hardly can remember them without the aid of bible search Kai, who did this to us?
When the devil comes with his battles, will i use the bible app or sword bible search to know the scripture to reply with? you see, we need help ASAP
Now because of all telegram channels and access to messages, you can spend your whole day downloading and listening to messages on telegram whereas you have neglected the study of the scripture for yourself, listening to messages is never and can never be a substitute for the study of the word.
Now we create an emotional spiritual atmosphere around ourselves, by constantly playing messages or sounds, they are good, I do them too but they are never a substitute for staying in the secret without any material but the bible, without any sound but your worship and tongues from your mouth.
Many of us cannot pray now without us playing something, hmmm, the day you have flat battery, I know prayer will be difficult that day, (Pray in season and out of season)
We can stay online and reading and sharing post by great MOG or follow a ministry page and you think you are growing spiritually, Kai, that is just emotions, it is not a substitute for staying alone with God.
When last did you read books genuinely, do you even have a library.
Sir/ma, I hope the advantage has not become disadvantaged now?
Sharing a post on salvation from a ministers page is not equal to going out for evangelism or reaching out to a person or a group of people by the gospel
How I wish God can show many of us our SPIRITUAL PROGRESS GRAPH, we will be amazed that we are not making progress at all.
Many are even studying to share now, hmmmm we study to feed, grow and live then out of our abundance we share .
I KNEW I WAS IN TROUBLE THE DAY I WANTED TO PRAY FOR A SICK PERSON AND WHAT CAME TO MY MIND WAS, (KAI THIS WILL TREND OH, IF IT HAPPENS, IT WILL BE A GOOD TESTIMONY TO SHARE)
THANK GOD HE DISGRACED ME IN THAT MEETING AND NOTHING HAPPENED, IF NOT MAYBE MY MINISTRY WOULD HAVE FINISHED.
TODAY WE SHARE TESTIMONIES NOT TO SHOW BUT TO GIVE GLORY TO GOD AND ENCOURAGE BELIEVERS TO PRESS MORE.
BUT IF GOD SEE IN MY HEART THAT THE MOTIVE BEHIND PRAYING FOR THE SICK IS SO I CAN PROVE A POINT OR SHOW, MAY NO MIRACLE HAPPEN IN THAT MEETING IN JESUS NAME (THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH HIM)
Media can be to advertise the work of Jesus and can also be to ascribe glory to ourselves, that is when the advantage has become disadvantage.
Let me pause here to come back later.
PLEASE GO BACK TO THE SECRET PLACE AND STAY THERE, THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THAT.
CARRY YOUR BIBLE AND READ AND STUDY NO EXTRAS OR AID AT TIMES TO BUILD TOUGHNESS AND CAPACITY
PRAY ALONE IN THE SECRET WITHOUT COMING ONLINE TO SHARE WHAT GOD IS TELLING YOU.
SWITCH OFF YOUR DATA WHILE PRAYING
PUT YOUR PHONE ON SILENCE AND FOCUS.
READ TO LEARN NOT TO DEBATE OR SO YOU CAN HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE.
I hope someone is instructed.
I see a burning generation
