The Letters to the Churches (PART 2)
(The Words from the Lord).
Prince Akogo, a servant of the Living Lord
To the Body, of Christ
Greetings to all.
Thanks be to our Lord Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit, who constantly shares with us spiritual blessings in everyplace.
To the Elect Body, which is the Church of God.
The Lord has finally Spoken:
From the 15th of September, 2017, the Lord began to minister to me words, in which He spoke to me to title as ‘LETTERS TO THE CHURCH.’
These were a set Solutions from the Lord to help the Church breathe life back into the things which are dead. Some of these solutions were in a form of instructions, while others were a form of rebukes from Him. However, the purpose is to help the Church get back on its feet. The Letter addresses various bodies of the Church, to tackle certain issues concerning the Church. I have hereby broken them into subcategories, while putting them into points, for all to be able to understand.
These were the 2ND Points raised by the Lord, on the ‘Letters to the Church,’ which are to His Body, The Church.
To The Elect Body, once again, Peace!
According to the Lord, He charges Parents to take care of their wards, for He gave them the children so that they will take care of them.
And this was how He said they should take care of them-in the fear of te Lord.
The Lord said that, God would require the welfare of their children from their hands; that was why He said that;
‘Train up a child in the way he should go, and when He grows, He would not depart from it.’
Then He also said of Abraham, chosing him to become a father over every Jew.
For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.” Gen. 18:19 NIV
The above scripture gives us here clear understanding of why God gave Abraham, Isaac, in the first place. The Lord was saying here that, He gives us Children, so that we may direct them in the way of the Lord.
Therefore, they must never abandone their children, to do anything they want, and in any lifestyle they want, because they shall be giving account of their children’s welfare, also in the last day, just as everyone else, who was given a talent by God will be made to give account of whatever He was given, by the Master of the home.
So, God gives children, so that they may be directed, in the way of the Lord, while they themselves, like Abraham, are first to keep the Law. Yes, they are first to keep, the Law.
While you doing what you don’t want your children to do, will they not learn from you?
God will not give you a child, and tomorrow you make the child, an armed robber or a prostitute, against His wish. It will attracts God’s instant judgment.
We remember, that God punished Eli for neglecting his children, for doing just anything they wanted, and it had attracted God’s wrath upon them.
He made the children, to live their own lives, as he watched them do it.
God, then sent fire to destroy the children, and Eli himself was punished in the event, falling behind his back and breaking his neck, before the Presence of the Lord.
(The Lord, by wisdom, explained, why He allows little little sufferings to come in the way of the Youth of the Churches).
He said that, they (that is, the youth), must first learn too that there is suffering too, in the Church. If there is no suffering, how do we know you are patient, or you are self-controlled, well mannered, in the midst of trouble, or you are still walking in His love despite everything? The one who loves God is the one who obeys His commandments.
But if you sow in tears, you shall doubtless come back to reap in joy, when the Lord is through with you.
When the Lord is through with us, through our Economic Sufferings, just as He did a bit with the Apostles, there are a lot of great benefits unto us.
Through that, we begin to learn how to
Save (learn how to save). They would not also spend as spendrifts because God hates prodigality.
Work, to feed yourself in a good job, because He has commanded us to work. (If a man does not work, let him not eat)
Also learn to be first content, and as well as appreciate with whatever you have (Paul said; In whatever position it may be, I have learnt how to be abased, and how to abound). Adam was commanded to work, even when God’s grace was upon him. The work he did too had to be fruitful, which brought glory before the Lord.
It would also ignite us to learn a trade, and to educate ourselves, in the trade, and then also use His God-given talents in us, to make fruitfulness, to bring glory to Him. Remember that, our giftings are talents, which God would require, accountability of them, whether we’d used it well or not. So know that whatever you use your gifts, for, and as well the talents you use, to acquire something to eat, is not for you. That is why God, the Maker, expects your first fruits, as well as the Tithes, and Your Offerings, as also a way of showing appreciation, while you are on earth. That is why the Lord has been asking us, ‘Where are my tithes and and the offerings?’, after he has given us all the qualities and talents, to earn money with, and to gain resources of upon the earth. If we don’t pay them today, God would require them from us, during His final judgment.
So that is how God does His things.
Even so, we know that, God has a storehouse in heaven, where He actually saves, for the future
He is married to the Church, so He would save, and not throw the resources away, so He can feed the Church.
Even so the Lord God also learns; He God, who is a father, has educated Himself. Who taught Him knowledge? He has learnt knowledge all by Himself.
He has worked, and has also worked all things for Himself. He has been creative, also by thinking. In the absence of nothing, He God had created the Universe, to fill up the Space.
Hence, His children must learn and be creative.
The Two Types of God’s Children.
The Lord said that, currently and as always, there are two children He has.
There are those who wait patiently, who go through the suffering, and then begin to save, educate themselves, marry to save for the future, pray more to depend on his grace, work hard, become quite imaginative and creative-and they become like Him-in the long process.
These are those who by the parable, in the presence all tribulation and suffering would love to bear fruit, despite the costs. Some of these are the ones who bear fruit, some 60, some 80 and some 100
B. But there are those who do not learn these values; ‘they feel that I have abandoned them; they do not understand what I am doing.’ And so they begin to cut corners, cheat, lie, defraud like the world, and become unfruitful, though the Word was given to them.
But these are the ones who, did allow the cares of world, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the Word of God in them, and thereby abandoned the lessons the Lord had wanted, to give them.
They are those who have abandoned Him, and had forgotten about Him, and would not go an extra mile with Him, for they do not understand Him, and they are offended in Him; so they begin to steal, and they begin to join the world, and in their way of life-Some would, even kill like them and destroy as men do.
According to Him, such do no more have His glory upon them, and such, has left the Lord’s presence; while professing to still be obedient to Him.
But they have become unfruitful.
However the Lord pruneth which ever seed bears fruit, so that it beareth much fruit. But for them who do not bear fruit, what accountability shall they give, for they did not bear fruit? So we must repent and bear fruit, unto righteousness.
Hereby is this parable fulfilled in our age, when many are beginning to cut corners in the church, both men and women, who have abandoned their faith, but some are still standing in strong, bearing fruits, through its a painful process, while waiting in patience, for God’s harvest.
The Lord added and said, that ‘I have no Promised rich-quick schemes in My House. I train my children in the Way they should go.’ This is how the Lord has trained all His children, so that they would be faithful in Him. ‘You should remember the fruits of Long-suffering, and keep at it.’
He said that these were the qualities He invested in the early Church, even though His grace, was upon them.
So then, we must bear good fruit (very good fruit), or this was what may happen to us, according to the Lord’s speaking:
…He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground.
Here, you have what is yours.’
But his master answered him,
‘You wicked and slothful servant!
You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed?
Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents.
For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness.
In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Matt. 25:24-9 ESV
But finally, He said, ‘They like the prodigal Son, when they come to Me, I shall receive them, and will heal their bitterness that was in their hearts, because I the Lord love them, and still loves them to bear fruit.’
We are told by the Apostle Paul that,
the heir, as long as is a child, differeth not from a servant, but is under guardians and tutors, until the time appointed by the Father’
-Until God has considered you are learned and wise, and matured enough, and also through all the standards He has set for you-you’re not qualified for the blessing.
Before the blessing come, you are to come into His education and training, as well as into the creativity of managing all the blessings, before the blessings should come.
Which father, does not train up His Children, before giving them a Resource?
In other words, even though we are children of God, and yet owneth all things, we must be taught and fully trained, so we becometh not bastards-as Paul said.
Even Christ suffered, and was fully trained before giving the glory. He was being trained by God’s Spirit, to grow in wisdom, and stature.
So must all the children be. So, understand the Will of the Lord, and be not offended in the Master.
According to the Lord, this is why, He holds the blessings for a while, and said, finally that,
‘He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying’
To the Church scattered abroad,
Peace and Life to You. To Him be Glory, forever.
To the Elect.
