Pilate knew the truth but he chose to coast along with multiple lie.
Whenever you see the likes of Pastor William Kumuyi, Pastor Tunde Bakare, Father Mbaka, Pastor Adeboye, and many more influential men of God that have decided to be coasting along with the politicians lies and deceptions, definitely you need to know that something is wrong somewhere.
Therefore Christians urgently need to consider a few things.
1. It’s either their eyes are blind because they want safe landing for their achievements.
2. Satan might have determined to sift them.
3. How would people see us or what will they say?
Whatever the case may be I don’t mean to be disrespectful but carrying out my assignment, these sets of people men of God genuinely needs the prayers of the entire body of Christ.
THEY TRULY NEED CHRISTIANS PRAYER SUPPORT.
“And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.” Luke 22:31-32.
THE MOMENT YOU CHOOSE TO BE AFRAID OF WHAT PEOPLE WILL SAY, FEAR WILL SURELY PARALYZE YOU
Peter made a promise to Jesus that come what it may he will not deny Him.
But sooner that Jesus was arrested Peter denied Him swiftly. Whatever reason that may have made Peter to denied Jesus, definitely complacency that gave birth to fear cannot be overlooked.
However, Peter later remembered the sign that Jesus has spoken about that exact time that it will happen and it did happen and the cock crow.
BEEN DIPLOMATIC WHEN INJUSTICE IS PREVAILING IS DANGEROUS
Pastor Adeboye and Pastor Kumuyi have been diplomatic with injustice for too long.
Many followers of Christ today know the truth but they are afraid to voice it out because of the consequences that may follow from the priest, rulers or the influential politician’s crowd.
This denial of the truth is what is causing more havocs in many people’s lives and our society.
Especially when the so-called men of God have chosen to hide with the crowd to be diplomatic with the truth. For this reason, many people are ending up denying Christ.
HOW ARE THE OVERSEERS CAUSING PEOPLE TO DENY CHRIST?
Just like Peter was afraid to let people know that he was part of Jesus’s disciples, not even in front of a little girl; So also are many professing Christ followers are denying Christ daily in the presence of the worldly people with diplomacy because of material things.
The Politicians had hijacked almost all the respectable men of God, especially in Nigeria. They are already in Politicians captivity.
Jesus finally told Peter,
”when you have returned to Me, STRENGTHEN YOUR BRETHREN”
Father, I used to be one of these groups of people before you open my eyes.
Lord Jesus open their eyes and ears too to genuinely see the deception of the enemy in your name I pray.
