I have said it before in many of my teachings that PURITY is not only about getting rid of pollution but adhering firmly to a certain standard without any thought of compromise. Meaning that the reason why you get rid of pollution and filthiness is to ensure that you remain in the standard of God you have embraced, this implies that you can’t be pure until you have known the TRUTH and are willing to hold unto it even if it means you have to die while upholding it.
I saw that the present world is so swallowed up by a dangerous darkness and the only way out of this darkness is to employ the cutting edge of holiness. I know this darkness and I feel it all the time, it has enveloped every soul on earth, it’s a deceiving darkness, it makes people believe a lie as the truth, it makes darkness appear to you as light and light as darkness. It’s a deforming darkness, it has deformed many souls, this darkness has transformed souls into another creature that can not believe and trust God anymore, they don’t love God anymore and can’t accept God’s love for their lives, they can’t obey and honour God anymore! It’s a possessive and controlling darkness, it’s such a darkness that is moving people to do exactly what Satan has set for them to do in a day and every of their thoughts, words and actions are just according to Satan and not according to God. It’s a darkness of addiction, it’s such a darkness that promotes pleasures of sin and worldliness and material wealths to a high point where it appeals to the depths of people’s emotions and feelings such that anyone who has tasted of this darkness don’t want to stop tasting it and they are so enslaved that they are not willing to give up the enjoyment so that they can perish suddenly within the twinkle of an eye. This darkness is also a confusing and discouraging darkness, it makes people feel that their lives are worthless and hopeless, they feel God don’t care about them anymore, don’t love them and doesn’t care about them fulfilling their callings and destinies, it makes people get stuck or arrested in the realm of a thought and can’t find an answer to the conflict going on in their minds and imaginations, and this confusion continues until they end up making wrong decisions or choices that will lead to irreversible damages in their lives.
I stood and looked at this great darkness and I said “God, What is the way out?”, The Lord showed me the way out and I will explain, 1) DON’T BELIEVE YOU ARE WHAT THE DARKNESS IS CHANGING YOU TO BE. The Lord said “Believe that you are not the darkness”, I have seen these darkness make people think thoughts that are not their own and you would think those thoughts were your thoughts but they aren’t (they are devil’s thoughts) and I have seen how they make people feel very strong emotions that are not their emotions (but are demonic emotions and urges). The Lord said those who are born again or saved must believe and agree that they are not what the devil is making them to think, feel and do.
2) HATE THE DARKNESS AND LOVE GOD. You will be easily destroyed if you happen to love the same thing that devil is making you to love, So, you must begin to hate this darkness that has prevailed over billions of souls all over the world, you must hate it with strong passion and love God to the point where you no longer live for yourself but for only Him.
3) APPLY THE CUTTING EDGE OF HOLINESS. You see, I never knew how beautiful, powerful and glorious I am in Christ Jesus until the Lord began to demand that all of ME must die, it was as I practically die to fleshly pleasures and desires, worldly pleasures and desires, fear, pride, lusts, self ambitions and the likes that I began to see that God had actually gave me a very beautiful and peaceful life. I realize that the darkness upon this generation is not making people see and know what God has actually given to them or have done in their lives—It would only make you to see what God hasn’t done yet because you are being driven by your lusts and your faith is powered by those lusts. The more I cut off everything that is according to Self, flesh and worldliness, the more I see how much God has filled my life with His Glory and Power, So I said “Wow, So I had been the one limiting the manifestation of the Original Me who is created in Christ Jesus”. Therefore, I surrendered all to the Lord and allowed Him cut off everything He doesn’t want in my life including hatred, bitterness and anger, and including people I’m connected with who are bringing darkness into my life.
SOMETIMES PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME SAYING “WHY ARE YOU SO STRICT ABOUT SPIRITUAL THINGS, YOU ARE TAKING THESE THINGS TOO SERIOUS?”, ON HEARING THIS, I WILL JUST LAUGH, I LAUGH BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT I KNOW AND HAVE NOT SEEN WHAT I HAVE SEEN…I KNOW THE KIND OF DARKNESS WE ARE DEALING WITH IN THESE LAST DAYS AND I KNOW WHERE THIS DARKNESS IS TAKING EVERYONE IT HAS CAPTURED!!
THERE HAVE NEVER BEEN A TIME WHERE A GOOD THING IS SO DIFFICULT TO DO AS THIS TIME WE ARE CURRENTLY IN. Have you ever asked yourself, Why is doing good so difficult for me, Why is thinking good thoughts so hard these days? Can’t you see how great a darkness you are surrounded with…Is it not the time to embrace a life of daily discipline and deaths to Self that is powered by love, faith, fastings and prayers??!!
WHERE IS YOUR CUTTING EDGE?!!! Amen.
