VICTORY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO SERVE THE LORD
By Justin N. Citro
"What sorrow for those who say
that evil is good and good is evil,
that dark is light and light is dark,
that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter."
For the members of the Church, Victory is hard to find nowadays for there are some church members who feel like Christ is not the center of the Church but more like a side character.
Let me explain: Some people who claim to be Christians seek worldly advice rather than seeking advice from the Scriptures. Some people go to a psychic to find out about their future or who they will marry. Some people participate in yoga claiming that they had no clue it was demonic because it had the word "Christian" draped over it. Then, the same people who consult psychics and other forms of divination as well as participating in the Eastern Meditation Philosophies such as yoga, go to church, pretending to be godly, expecting God to hear and grant them victory. However, we are told in Isaiah 5:20, "What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter." The Lord will not grant us victory when we are not living the way the Lord expects us to live; what the Lord calls evil is evil and what the Lord calls good is good. He expects us to walk in holiness and righteousness. It is only when we are walking in holiness and righteousness, remaining in Him, walking with Him, and obeying His commands that we have victory.
If the Church desires to see more breakthroughs, the Church must start enforcing the true and godly way to live. Brothers and Sisters, if you are living in an ungodly manner, how I ask you, are you going to receive victory?
