Scripture Reading :-
Hosea 2:1- end.
ZACCHAEUS-ZEAL FOR CHRIST
There is no character in life called Laziness.
No man is lazy.
When you see a man who love to sit on the Soffa and watched Tv day and night,he is not a lazy man.
He simply direct his zeal from looking for Work to Tv,simple.
It takes a lot of energy to pick up the remote,make tea or coffee and memorise all the channel numbers.
His Zeal was in another land of his own interest.
What is ZEAL
-putting your energy on a thing
-burning desire for a thing(“that” I may know Him-(Phil 3:10)
Working Passage :-Luke 19:1-10
Introduction of Zacchaeus
His life,ways,talk,smells of rottenness.
-He is rich and stinky
Everything goes,all bad things inhabit and enclaves his life.
-Satanic broadcasting stations,
who can analyse his or her fellow xtians(CNN)
JESUS CAME TO CLEAN ALL PUBLIC -CAN
-There is no hiding place,He will locate you,in the name of Jesus.
Many Zacchaeuses are in our churches today,
And Pastors are afraid to talk on this issues,WHY?
Because of FEAR they will leave their church.
There is “NO HIDING PLACE FOR CORRUPTION” in NAHM
-Not in need,
-Not Demon possessed,
-And Not poor.
So the question is :-
WHAT DO YOU PREACH TO HIM?PURIFICATION
PURIFICATION TO THEIR SOULS:-
They must take Jesus to their homes and receive Him.
Start a new life ,
Take away all worldly things.
TODAY,NOT TOMMORROW ,SALVATION MUST COME TO YOUR HOME
You have come to Him,He will come to you.
Jesus describes 4 Groups of people coming to church
Which of this do you belong?
But be rest assured,beloved,
Matt 22:2-4 ,all things are ready for you to be accepted into the kingdom,
HOW DO I RECEIVE THIS EXCHANGE AND ZEALOUSNESS:-
1-Fellowshiping with Jesus in HIS OWN HOUSE(Attending church services)
It’s a good way to grow your love and have faith in Christ.
2-Feed with Jesus (On the written WORD)
3-Genuine repentance,from your heart(out of a mans heart comes issues of life)
4-Depart from your old lives,get new spirit filled friends.
Secretly involving yourself in IMMORALITY,is drawing back His hands from manifesting.
5-Friends exchange visits,you must be prepared to follow Jesus to His heavenly home(John 14:1-3)
-Adulterers and fornicators cannot make it
-evil pastors cannot
-Doubtful XTIANS cannot.
A day is coming when the trumpet shall sound,
WHICH WAY WILL YOU GO:
-the NARROW WAY
-THE WIDE WAY,
The way prostitute,liars,drunkards,
unbelievers go ….,
The way of the righteous
WHO WILL CELEBRATE YOU?
Heaven or Hell?
I pray you will not become GRACE IN THE GRAVE
Do not wait for God to use Jonah’s method on you.
I want to give you One minute,to SETTLE YOURSELF WITH YOUR CREATOR.
Where is your first Love?
What have replaced the zeal?
Is it your new found blessings,business,fruitfulness,marriage or job?
You must retrace your steps back to your creator.
Remember the owner of your life can call you home anytime.
Remember it will be too late to change when your Toes are pointing to the heavens.
RISE UP BELOVED..
He is able,aboundantly able
To deliver and to save ……………
1-I want to be among the righteous ,the saints,
Deliver me from this AWFUL FLESH.
2-Ezekiel 43:10(show the house to the house)
Ask God to reveal yourself to you
Ask for THE HIDDEN MANNA to locate you.
Exodus 16:33-35;God ordered Mosses to keep it for the coming generation .
