Sunday 13/11/2022 message.
A very wonderful Sunday afternoon to you all, and then we could think now on how we should or we must live as individuals, God’s children, we could live our lives, not to others but to the will of God, to the rules, laws of the kingdom, because as God’s children we would need to understand perfectly the life we need to or the life that we are living, understanding the christian nature, irrespective of what we are doing as at the time, though sometimes, it might not be easy to stay by the rules, looking at the world that we are in right now, it might not be easy to stay in the position that God has put us, but to some extent understanding the rules. So let’s look at this scripture.
Nehemiah 8 from vs 1.
And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate, and they spake Unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses which the Lord had commanded to Isreal. Vs 2, and Ezra the Priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, which means the laws binding on both men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.
Wow! Wow! I love this scripture, and it says, and all that could hear with understanding, which means not everyone would even hear in the first place, and then with understanding, the law of Moses, the laws of the Kingdom, what they needed to know, and then should do, the laws was read out to the congregation by Ezra the Priest, the rules binding on God’s children, that was why I said earlier, that though it isn’t easy to live by the rules, in most cases, you would or might feel like doing what you want, but understanding to an extent the laws that all God’s children must or should abide to is important, looking at circumstances, trials, trauma, at least God’s children would know what to do and how to do it, they would have faith to stand, and irrespective of whatever it is, be happy always knowing fully well that they are God’s children, and still be ready to stay by the rules, and this was why Ezra the Priest gathered the people and then read out the laws.
Today, we have God’s Priest gathering God’s people, and then teaching them the laws, the rules, and that is why we have services in Church, and then we have God Annointing His ministers and so they could do His work, and this God wants, not for Himself only, but the people might know the extent of His power, the extent of His grace towards mankind and then for the world to be filled with men and women of understanding, understanding who God is to an extent, and then making efforts to shun evil, to shun sin and become the perfect man and woman that could stand in the gap for others, and not having pride to the extent of purnushing others, but staying through to what they know, and what they understand, because it is important that there is understanding, and still it is important that there is action, not just knowing but making efforts to act accordingly, for this is the word of the lord for His people in this season.
