Acts 22:18 And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
Whenever any festival comes it may be a happy period for people but those who walk in the Spirit, it is a depressing time. I am not speaking of the Corona calamity, nor of unbelievers celebrating their pagan festivals, but about so called Believers celebrate pagan festivals that too taking the name of the Lord, it is like the Israelites who dared to keep idols in the Tabernacle of the Lord and we know how the Lord beheaded the idol.
People cry out to the Lord when they face problems and find their cries are not heard, but these same people mock God when their so called festival arrives.
There was a time when I would pray like Elijah but then Christ said His Spirit is not like Elijah so now I do not know what to do but try to bear and keep silent for God is slow to anger.
People want of God but do not want God. Their eyes are only on the blessing and gifts that come from the Lord, they do not care to know Him or understand Him. Many a times I think why I waste my time trying to teach people, daily searching scriptures and giving Living Bread that comes from the Lord and not Manna (meaning ‘What is it’). I feel at times like I am pouring water on a ducks back waiting for it to be soaked one find day the same reason why the Lord called His people a stiff-neck lot and even at time tried to consume them in His anger.
Just yesterday I saw a message on social media with reference to what is happening in India stating ‘Corona as exposed India is not suffering due to illiteracy but due to stupidity of the literate’. This is the state of Christians all over the world, they know about God but do not know God.
Today being Resurrection Sunday we will find these stiff-neck people wishing each other ‘a Happy Easter’. They show their poor spiritual discernment and ignorance; some even knowingly will sell their spirit for human praise and glory so as to not offend people even at cost of offending God.
In today’s message things may come to a stage like the Lord told Paul, the Lord may tell His Anointed Ones ‘quickly get out from amongst them for they will not receive me’. I really hope that day does not come.
Lord You are Almighty God. You are a Holy God. Lord we ask forgiveness on behalf on your people like Moses did on behalf of Israel. We pray You do not consume them in your anger as You did to the Israelites who ate Manna and never understood it and thus perished in the desert. Lord we pray your people eat of the Living Bread and not Manna so that their bellies may be streams of living water…
This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables; because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And unto them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall in no wise understand; And seeing ye shall see, and shall in no wise perceive:
15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, And their ears are dull of hearing, And their eyes they have closed; Lest haply they should perceive with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And should turn again, And I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
17 For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which ye see, and saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not.
11 And Moses besought Jehovah his God, and said, Jehovah, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, that thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?
12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, saying, For evil did he bring them forth, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.
13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.
14 And Jehovah repented of the evil which he said he would do unto his people.
Numbers 16:21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
John 6:49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
