MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 27 September 2019 Devotional
A Nigerian adage states that “Everyday is for the thief, but one day for the owner”. This is the day for the thief’s eventual apprehension to face the wrath of the owner of the stolen articles.
In His response to His disciples’ curiosity, Christ delved into a faultless exposition on the composition of the Church comprising the wise and the wicked, with particular reference to the doom, destruction and damnation awaiting recalcitrant sinners and backsliders.
He pointedly and prophetically explained the eternal separation of the righteous from the wicked into heaven and hell respectively at the final judgment day. Burning, wailing, pain and gnashing of teeth await adamant sinners and backsliders, while the righteous shall rejoice, and shine forth as the sun in heaven forever.
- Today: DCLM Daily Manna 27 September 2019 by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi
The vital questions for every soul in the light of this exposition are: are you a good seed or tare? Are you a righteous or wicked member of the church? Are you a vessel of gold or wood? Who are you in the church? Christ knows the personality of each member of His Church irrespective of their hypocrisy. As such, in order not to scatter His Church and avoid a mistaken identity of the righteous for the wicked, He would do the separation between them at the consummation of all things on the final judgment day. Therefore, the judgment of God is certain and imminent.
However, the uncertainty of the exact day and time of this great judgment requires an immediate repentance by every sinner and backslider. It also requires the believer’s constant watchfulness and prayerfulness. The careless will cry eternally in hell, if he or she misses heaven.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: No hideout at final judgment.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Ecclesiastes 1-3
