THE AGE AND THE MESSAGE *PASTORAL GUIDE*

‘And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.’ – Matthew 24 vs 12

Hello Dearly Beloved, as I had fellowship in the presence of the Holy Spirit, He spoke these words into my heart. And it is a word specifically targeted to the Pastors and ministers in entire in the vineyard of the living God. If you are not a Pastor or a minister reading this, still go ahead with reading it, you will still be instructed by the Holy Ghost as you read. But if you are a Pastor, give keen attention to what you are about to read with an opened spirit as the Holy Spirit will pour instructions into your heart. God Bless You.

Now, we are talking about the age and the message, in other words, we are talking about the message for the age we are currently in, and before we can know what that message is; we have to first look into the age we are currently in. What all about this age? From our opening scripture, the Lord Jesus prophetically depicted to us what this current age would look like, and He said, because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. We are in the era of iniquity, the era where the love of many Believers are waxing cold and cold, and their lives are a dispensation of iniquity and all manner of uncleanness. Jesus wasn’t speaking of the unbelievers when He said iniquity shall abound and the love of many shall wax cold, no. But He was expressly speaking of the church because in the first place, unbelievers have no love (The love of God) in them, so what love do they have that now waxes cold? You see? So the Lord was clearly speaking of the Believers, those that have confessed His name and professed His majesty out of their mouths.

In our churches all around the world, there is a current gross level of ineffectiveness, a situation where Brethren hide themselves, a situation where the Brethren don’t wanna take up responsibilities in the house, and here is the reason, Guilt and Condemnation which are as a result of iniquity just in accordance of the words of the Master concerning them. Now I talked about the Brethren hiding themselves in shame and condemnation, not willing to be effective in the house, and now I wanna show you why with details;

‘And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.’ – Genesis 3 vs 8 {KJV}

You see that? That’s the story of Adam and his wife Eve after they had committed the iniquity, the Bible declares that they hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God. Why did they hide? Because they were condemned! Condemnation!! And this is still the case in our present day churches, condemnation and guilt have made a huge shipwreck of the effectiveness and committed of the Brethren towards the Lord Himself and the things of the Lord. Now, what is the cure for them? What therefore is the divinely orchestrated message for this condemned age?

Some preacher can just hold on to the mic, mount the stage, and begin to rail condemnation on the Brethren by his message, and hat makes the whole matter worse. You that teach that men should stop sinning, you do more harm than good in he real sense, because these people already know they are sinners and it seems like they can’t change or stop it even when they are frustrated with it. So by judging them with your message of works, you do much more harm than good, and their ineffectiveness continues, and they wax more cold in their love for God and in the things of Him. – Selah

Dearly Beloved, do you get my Phronesis? This then is the message for the age;

‘This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief’ – 1 Timothy 1 vs 15 {KJV}

Yes! This is it! What we must deal with in our churches is not necessarily sin because where the Gospel of Grace is taught regularly, sin can’t strive there. But what we must deal with with all seriousness is condemnation, as nothing sponsors ineffectiveness and more unrighteousness as CONDEMNATION. – Selah

The more we show them from the scriptures how forgiven they are by God, how clean they are because of HIS Blood, and precious they are in His sight, guilt is expelled from their conscience, the fears, the doubts, the worries, and all such things as condemnations and accusations are gone from their consciences, and once that is achieved, the love of God fills their hearts producing joy, rest, and peace of mind. Under such elated state, they can be do anything and be anything for the Lord. – Selah

Preachers, let’s stop the condemnation by our messages, but rather, let us teach the true Gospel that liberates, that lifts, that fills with joy, and above all, that saves!

The Gospel of Grace Rocks!

God Bless You.
