ONE THING YOU SHOULD NOT SAY TO THE LORD



‘For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.’ - Romans 7 vs 19


Hello Dearly Beloved in the LORD Jesus Christ. I’m excited bringing you the word of the LORD again. It has been indeed a while since this Blog was updated with new articles, but doubtlessly; every word shared already on the Blog brings fresh inspiration daily. GOD Bless you. Be lifted by this word which I bring to you now. AMEN.


You might be interested to know what is that thing a Believer should not say to the LORD? Yea, I will show you in a minute. Before I go into that directly, let’s lay a foundation of Truth first. Let’s examine our opening scripture. That was the writing of the Apostle Paul. There he states that the good intentions of his heart, the righteous steps of his heart are not what he finds out displaying on the outward, instead, the abhorring deeds which he really doesn’t wanna put up with, they are the very things that he does. Uhmmm. Have you ever found yourself in that situation? Probably the Apostle at some point in his life might have done some wrong stuff, and he says to himself, this will never happen again, but the next thing he sees, that very thing he has just concluded in himself never to happen again repeating itself. What a misery. Now it’s important to note that the Apostle Paul was talking about himself when he was yet without Christ, nevertheless, he didn’t by that overrule the fact that when one is now born again, all that life cease to happen in him. No! He didn’t. Though the Apostle Paul made that statement from the angle of him then in the world, nevertheless, all he said are actually and still the normal experiences of men even the Believers; because though we are born again by Faith, we are obviously still in the fleshy body which is the source of all weaknesses. – Selah. Please it’s very important to note that. Let’s see the verse 18;


‘For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.  ’ – {KJV}


Very beautiful line this is! Please did you take note of something? Look at it. The Apostle said, he knows that in him dwelleth no good thing. But I love how he made his statement; he went further to buttress it by saying (in my flesh). Hold on, that gives us a notion that he didn’t make that acknowledgement as of the past, but that was a present term acknowledgement. He had to make the clear demarcation between his flesh (which has the sinful nature) and himself (who is washed and sanctified in the Blood of Christ). If that statement was only acknowledging to when he was in the world, he wouldn’t have made such a revelational demarcation between himself and his flesh. – Selah. At this point, I really want you meditating on my every word because only meditation can pass this Light I’m sharing to you. – Selah


By that, we can clearly see the source of all our errors, mistakes, short comings, sins, the flesh! And now we still live in the body which carries the sinful nature. Now know this, when we talk about the flesh, we are simply talking about the sinful nature resident in the human body. Alright? Okay. Now we live in the body, but by Faith we live in the Spirit. When we shall go to be with JESUS, then it will be it and no more by Faith. But now, we are in the Spirit by Faith. Nevertheless, we are in the body by fact. And we cannot deny the fact that at certain times we yield to the ill characters and displays of the flesh.


Having established this foundation, what is that thing we should not say to the LORD? When we committed sin or anything wrong, we should not say ‘LORD, I will never do it again’. Hahahahaha. Many Believers say that a lot. When they’ve done wrong, they put up with words to the LORD like, Lord this will never repeat itself’. That’s nice, it’s a sign that you’ve learnt from your mistake and have a willing readiness to turn from it; nevertheless, you’re case is not different from what we read above in our opening scripture. If you’re very sincere with me, those things you’ve said never again to, they repeated themselves more than once. Is that right? You see? The Spirit of the LORD thought me this, never say ‘LORD it won’t happen again’, because as nice as that may sound, it’s a mere show of ignorance. – Selah


Listen, when we are convicted by the Holy Ghost when we sin or do wrong, you have to understand the reason for the conviction. It’s very important to note that the Holy Ghost does not convict the Believers of sin. No! HE doesn’t convict us to reveal that we have sinned to us. No! Then what is it? Apostle, I feel heavily convicted in my conscience when I do wrong, and I feel very sorry about it, sometimes, I am stocked in guilt and sadness, wasn’t I convicted of sin? Wasn’t the Holy Ghost the one that convicted me? Of course Child of GOD, The Holy Ghost convicted you, but you’ve lacked all along the understanding of the purpose for which HE convicts the Believer. Let’s see something;


‘And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.’ – John 16 vs 8 – 11 {KING JAMES VERSION}


Because of emphasis I brought to you this scripture, it says that the Holy Ghost will reprove the world of Righteousness. Some other translations use the word convict instead of reprove. Now, it’s simple. HE convicts the world of sin as been sinners. Why? Because they believe not on the Precious Name of JESUS. HE convicts the world of Righteousness as been Righteous. And JESUS gave the reason, HE said ‘because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more’. O lovely. You know why HE said that? Because while HE was on Earth, HE was their defender. Many times the Pharisees and the Scribes always convicted the disciples as sinners by reason of one act or the other even much more what we read in the Bible, but JESUS always stood up for them, defending them before the men. You see? HE was their Righteousness. Hallelujah! Think about it. There was no time JESUS rebuked any one of them for their sins even if they had sins. But we saw JESUS always convicting the Pharisees and Scribes of sin and the rest of the people who believed not. You see? So the Holy Ghost is not doing a new work, HE’s actually continuing the works of JESUS on earth because JESUS Himself is gone to Heaven, so HE continues HIS work, not that HE’s doing a new work. You see now? That’s why JESUS said because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more. Read your Bible very well, anytime sin was recorded against a disciple, JESUS ignored it. Why? Because HE doesn’t convict one who has believed of sin. Why? He’s their Righteousness. – Selah. The first time the Apostle Peter ever believed in the LORD reading from the Book of Luke 5 vs 8, let’s see the scenario;


‘When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.’ – {KJV}

After that the LORD had given him a huge miracle of a great multitude of fishes as seen in the verse 6, Peter believed, and declared before the LORD he was a sinner, but I love the way the LORD responded in the verse 10. The LORD ignored instead gave him hope saying, ‘Fear not’! You see, once one believes in the LORD, the LORD ceases to pay attention to his flaws. Of what use is it to HIM paying attention to our flaws when HE came to be our Righteousness? Then there would have been no need for that Great Salvation. – Selah


Now, when we are convicted by the Holy Ghost, it’s not to make us know we have done wrong as it were, but to reveal in us GOD'S immeasurable Grace and Love towards us. This’ the Revelation you should have; When you are gripped in your heart when you sin, it’s not for condemnation, but for Revelation, to tell you that you could never be perfect by your efforts, to show to you that you are only accepted of GOD because of HIS Grace and HIS free Gift of Righteousness which HE gave to you freely in CHRIST. Once that is accepted, Peace surges into the heart. And having acknowledged that, it increases your appreciation for the LORD, it increases your love for the LORD, and that enables you, empowers you above that mistake not just that mistake, but many errors. You’ll find out that many ungodly appetites fall of. You see? So saying, LORD this won’t happen again is not what makes it not happen again, but your acknowledgement of HIS Grace and mercy in the midst of your grief! – Selah


So what do we get from this, when convicted by the Holy Ghost, it’s for our Total Good and Advancement in the Faith. Praise GOD!


GOD has Blessed you.
