Topic: Marked For Demolition – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche “Dunamis International Gospel Centre” | Date: Tuesday, 24th July 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. 1 John 2:15-17.
Seeds of Destiny THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The wisdom of drawing closer to God is the key to not being a victim of the destruction of this world.
On September 11, 2001, an event happened that shook the whole world; the world watched in shock and horror as New York’s World Trade Centre Towers were reduced to rubble by terrorists using hijacked civilian passenger jets.
At that time, I watched on television and saw the horrible sight of planes flying into the Twin Towers, and then all of a sudden, everything collapsed and was engulfed in flames.
Beloved, God made me to understand that what happened to those towers was a shadow compared to what is about to come upon the earth. I want to let you know that the whole world you see today is marked for demolition. If we do not understand the times that we live in, we easily become victims of calamity.
This world is not here to stay; this world is passing away. All the things of the world that people kill themselves to acquire would pass away. The world has been marked for demolition; God Himself marked it for demolition. All the beautiful places and palaces of this world, including The Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, Nigeria, The Presidential Castle in Accra, Ghana, The White House in Washington D.C., all the skyscrapers in New York, Chicago, London, Singapore, and the world’s tallest building in Dubai have all been marked for total demolition.
It will also interest you to know that all those expensive cars, flamboyant houses and mansions, fashionable clothes and all flesh upon the earth are marked for demolition.
A time will come where your wristwatch would be of no use because time would have stopped and eternity would have begun. At that time, hair dressing salons would be deserted, no traffic would be on the road anymore, night clubs and alcoholic joints would be deserted. What would matter at that time would not be the price of your shoes, the style of your hairdo or how beautiful or handsome you look; what would matter would be what you did with the time of your life and its eternal implication.
Beloved, it is important to know this so we can apply our hearts to wisdom – the wisdom of serving God, living a holy and righteous life. It is the wisdom of living the way God wants us to live. The wisdom of drawing closer to God is the key to not being a victim of the destruction of this world.
My counsel is, live with a consciousness that the earth is marked for demolition and would end someday. Let this consciousness draw you closer to God.
Remember this: The wisdom of drawing closer to God is the key to not being a victim of the destruction of this world.
