Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you – 2nd Corinthians 6:17
A Christian should live a holy life that reflects the nature of God. Holiness, means to be committed to the teaching of the scriptures, the instructions of the Father. As in the natural, children suppose to show some type of sign they belong to the individual who say they are their parents. They should look or talk like them, have some of their characteristics, it’s the same thing spiritually. Anyone who professes to be a Christian, should show attributes of their heavenly Father. As a part of basic beliefs of a Christian, they should separate themselves from actions, influences or people that will contaminate them. The Corinthian church was a immature congregation just as it is today with many churches. Many pastors have stopped teaching on sin and many in the congregation are on their way to hell because they aren’t being taught. Today’s salvation is, if you attend church, volunteer your talent or your body in different areas of the church; give your tithes and offering then you’re Christian. As a Christian, we should do this, but after doing all of this and then live opposite of the teaching of the scriptures, we’re still Hell bound.
According to the Word of God, we must be born again of the Spirit, and the Spirit of God that lives within our being will enable us to live according to the Word of God. It’s the responsibility of the pastors and leaders to lead the people into the promise land, but many of them are too busy and they aren’t spending enough time in the presence of God or His Word to give the people what God is saying.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6
This is the season, believers as well as unbelievers celebrate Christmas. The Christian community celebrates Christmas as the birth of Jesus; although there is no record indicating He was actually born on the 25th of December, but this is the date given for celebration. Religious people have given the day chosen to celebrate Christmas as a pagan holiday. Paganism is an individual that denies there is one God, but many gods, it’s the worship of all gods, it’s a non-Christian, atheist, agnostic, polytheistic. Whatever day Jesus was born, it’s a day that needs to be celebrated, that is why as Christians, we should celebrate His birthday everyday by praise and worship and submitting ourselves to our Father’s instructions through His written Word to the believer.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world (1st John 4:4)
There is much evil being committed in the world, because the god of this world is the author of it. While so many people go day to day ignoring the presence of evil among us; because Satan have convinced some people there is no God or Devil because they have rejected the Word of God. Then it’s those who is playing church, having no sensitiveness to the spirit realm. Many in the church community are being led by Satan rather than God because they fail to submit themselves to the instructions He has given through His written Word. Just as good exist so does evil, when you listen to the media, read the newspaper, word of mouth the majority of the news is bad. What we usually hear and see is nothing that would promote happiness or joy.
