Knowing the way up is knowing the way down and knowing the right way is knowing the wrong one; in this is the right way and the way up revealed, be therefore engraced and enflamed as you embrace and engage the revealed mystery of God’s kingdom. Amen.
Hating what God loves is courting trouble, to despise what God loves is to enjoy disgrace, no man is more unfortunate than the one who defiles or defy what Christ died for.
Come to think of this, if one takes care of what Christ loved enough to die for, would such man not enjoy the blessings of Christ? Can one be a promoter of what Christ gave Himself for and not be promoted by God? Because Mary Magdalene took care of Christ’s physical body, her name received an eternal relevance; what now happens to one who takes care of Christ’s spiritual body? Think of it.
The Church is the body of Christ that Christ loved so dearly and gave Himself up for in other to sanctify it, speaking against the Church (God’s people as a whole and as an individual) is speaking against the body of Christ that He loves so dearly, maltreating the Church or any of the individual therein is maltreating the body of Christ; Now, if 42 children where mauled by 2 she-bears because they mocked the bald headed man of God, do you now see why those who act out of hatred towards the church (body of Christ) find themselves in all kinds of chaos and calamity? THE CHURCH AND EACH OF IT’S MEMBER IS A BODY AND PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, HATING THEM IS LOVING DEATH AND BLESSING THEM IS GETTING BLESSED.
The state of the church notwithstanding, it is still the body of Christ and Christ gave up Himself to sanctify her, WE SHOULD RATHER BE GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR THE CURRENT STATE OF THE CHURCH, FOR THE CHURCH WE NOW SEE IS A PRODUCT OF CHRIST’S DILIGENT DEDICATION TO HER SANCTIFICATION, A WORK CHRIST HAS BEEN DOING FOR OVER 2000 YEARS. Don’t hate that brother or sister, she is a part of the body of Christ and Christ is still sanctifying her, rather love her and bless her.
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THAT THE CLOTH YOU’VE BEEN WASHING FOR LIKE 30 MINUTES IS DIRTY? EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW THE CLOTH IS DIRTY, YOU WILL STILL FEEL BAD AND WISHED THE PERSON HAD ENCOURAGED YOU; THAT IS HOW CHRIST FEELS WHEN WE OPEN OUR MOUTH TO SPEAK EVIL OF THE CHURCH HE HAS BEEN CEASELESSLY LABORING ON FOR YEARS; DEARLY BELOVED, WE CANNOT MAKE CHRIST FEEL BAD AND GOD WILL MAKE US FEEL GOOD, MANY DIE AND FALL ILL BECAUSE THEY FAILED TO HONOR THE BODY OF CHRIST….ONE OF THE SUREST WAY UP IN LIFE IS TO BE BLESSING THE BODY OF CHRIST, BECAUSE MARY ANOINTED THE BODY OF CHRIST, GOD ANOINTED HER NAME AND BECAUSE JUDAS SOLD THE BODY OF CHRIST, HE BURSTED AND HIS BOWELS GUSHED OUT.
Now is the road laid bare before us, choose wisely beloved.
