Mary of Bethany

 

Can you put down your righteous cloaks and

just show love.

There were three prominent Marys’ in the scriptures. Mary mother of Christ, Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany

Acts 4:31

Ask yourself which God are you worshipping?

The old law and the new laws are in conflict. We no longer follow the doctrine of Elisha or Elijah. We follow the teachings and doctrine of Christ.

The teachings of Love.

Elijah and Elisha are nothing but shadows of Christ.

They are the previews. They are the hype.

Christ is the main event. He is not a preview. He is who we have been waiting for.

Christ is superior to the preview.

God gave his first son to save us. Think about that.

Why do churches meet together?

See what the scriptures say about meeting together

1 Corinthians 11:20
Sometimes more harm than good is done when people meet together as a church

Sometimes the scriptures go against people’s emotions.

But what is written cannot be unwritten.

Some of you have used the words “I feel” to justify what you want the scriptures to represent.

When you use your emotions and not the scriptures to guide you in what is good and what is bad, you have missed the mark.

Acts 4:31
The Apostles spoke the word of God boldly at a certain place.

To speak the word of God boldly, you have to know the word of God boldly.

The Nigerian culture and traditions need to be addressed with caution.

Does your society conform to what the scriptures teach?

The most successful nations have their own cultures and keep them in check.

We have to speak boldly of the word of Yahushua even if it is not favorable.

Luke 18:1

Yahushua was blunt and straightforward

He addressed the Pharisees as blind fools, yet he still ate with them. He was a teacher yet he was all about love

He rebuked them, yet he ate with them.

Luke 7:28
I tell you, of all who have ever lived, none is greater than John. Yet even the least person in the Kingdom of God is greater than he is!”
Luke 7:28 NLT

Money is not mentioned here. Your earthly achievements and accomplishments do not count.

The message of The Free Nation has not been compromised in any way.

It remains a message of Love

Yahushua was open to all who came to him. We are told when “the immoral woman came to Yahushua” he did not send her away.

The Pharisees rejected God’s plan, yet Yahushua still ate with them.

Today we see churches seating in judgement of others and refusing to associate with those they have labeled as sinners

Luke 7:36
Despite the fact that Christ ate with this man who disagreed with his doctrine, this Pharisee sat in judgement of the woman who came to wash Christ’s feet with expensive perfume and he called her a sinner.

Christ did not judge her.

2 Corinthians 4:4
Satan has blinded the hearts of many.

You know the story of Zaccheaus, a sinner, a tax collector, yet Christ extended love to him.

All righteousness comes from God, Human efforts achieve nothing.

Remain Blessed
