Popular Nigeria Gospel Music Minister, Pastor Nathaniel Bassey has send a message to Gospel Music ministers and to every believer of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In his message on IG he said “Dear Music Ministers, our songs will be empty and mere entertainment if we don’t spend time in the WORD OF GOD. Singing the revelation of the word, breathed by the Spirit of God is the KEY.
He also went further to write and said:
“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places:”
Numbers 33:51-52 KJV “…those you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes… and they shall harass you in the land..” Saints, when God speaks, please understand that He is speaking from the view point of eternity. He has the total picture. He sees the end from the beginning and vice-versa. Also understand that His instructions are more for our benefit. Please note, that God is a very merciful God. And like I stated some weeks back, when He forgives our acts of disobedience He does so without keeping a record. Which means that those forgiven deeps can never come between You and Him. HOWEVER, the CONSEQUENCES of those actions may affect us, at least on this part of eternity.
This scripture right here is a classic example.
Oh Saints of God, believe me I get messages on such every other time.
People have virtually lost their marriages because they were sentimental about those God expressly warned against being in their homes. Folks have lost monies and businesses, Jobs because they rationalized God’s instruction on who to partner with, and those people have become irritants and thorns in their life. Even in ministry, people have suffered loses and pain because they argued with God’s directive. Remember the testimony of the dear sister in UK whose domestic staff almost sent her to jail? Same. God had warned her to let her go. Oh what needless pain we.
People have married into trouble because they thought the people would changed after God warned expressly against it. Everyone of us, in one area or the other can attest to this. Suffering needlessly if we just obeyed completely.
Do you know that part of the things Israel suffers today is because of this particular verse? The fruit and consequences of our actions and decisions transcend us.
May we find abundant grace to obey completely always in Jesus’ name.
