"I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth " Exodus: 34:10 (KJV)
Thou art warned

"Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom that we present every man perfect in Christ Jesus." Colossians 1:25–28

 The hectic lifestyle of today’s world does not give us time to indulge in analyzing our path. With or without our cognizance we commit many sins in our life. Shall we ask ourselves, Is my way pleasing before God which includes our business, the way we treat our spouse or children, the way we behave with our colleagues, etc. When we misbehave who is there to tell us what we do is wrong or will we even listen to any of them who advises. Jesus Christ is an ever-loving God. No matter who you are he still loves you. But at the same time he warns you today to turn away from the filthy ways which you follow and repent and mend your ways.

God wants every one of us to heed to his counsel and walk according to his ways to receive his blessings. The Bible says that he has many more blessings in store for you. If we want to receive those blessings, it is for us to listen to his warning today and change our ways.

As the Scripture says, we are here to warn every man of his ways and also teach the man which is the right way and the way of wisdom. So that he may present himself to be perfect in the day of judgement (Colossians 1:28). For those who refuses to listen to instruction will receive poverty and shame. But he that regards the reproof will be honored (Proverbs 13:18). We read about a character called Abner in Bible. When Saul the king points his mistake to him. He raves and rants with anger but alas his end becomes pathetic (II Samuel 3:7,8, 27). When a mistake is being pointed out to you, correct yourself that you may be a blessing for others.

Same way King David when he took the wife of one of his subject, Nathan the prophet went to the king to warn him about it. David reacted by becoming morose and pleaded to God to forgive his sin (II Samuel 12:1-13). He wrote a whole psalm (Psalms 51) to express his sorrow. God saw David’s humility and blessed him with a long and good life.

The scriptures says blessed is the man that fears the Lord and who greatly delight in his commandments (Psalms 112:1). Reject everything that does not get the approval of God and lead a life which is pleasing before the sight of God. You may ask, sometimes I do not even know whether the way I tread in is the right one or not. If the way you walk is right your conscience itself will tell you it is right otherwise it will constantly prick you. Do not reject the counsel of our conscience, it acts as a torch for you in life’s way. To overcome the temptations, fast and pray (Psalms 69:10) that God may give you the inner strength to resist the temptation. Remember, The Lord has chosen you even before you were born (Psalms 71:6, 139:16). He has drawn you in the palms of his hand (Isaiah 49:15,16). He loves you, therefore, he will not allow you to be a failure, be it in the spiritual life or material world.

Are you still resisting the warning from God? Are you saying this message is not for me? Consider once again when there is still time.

May the Lord bless you and your family.

May the Love of the Father, grace of His son, Jesus Christ and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us all.

If you are blessed by this message kindly let us know, that we praise God together at pastor@indiabethel.org
