Lord, I will live for You; I will die for You; whatever You want me to do, I’ll do; I will not deny You; I will live all my life for You. It’s not word of mouth. Your Spirit and soul must bear witness to whatever you’re saying. It’s not easy to die because you'll deny me if I’m not with you. You will deny Me because you love your life. You will deny Me because of the circumstances around you. You will deny Me in various ways. Many people made that confession but were nowhere to be found in the end. If you search the whole of Heaven, as big as it is, they’re nowhere to be found. I Am the Alpha and Omega. I Am the Beginning, the Middle, and the Ending. I Am the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. I Am Holy, and in Me, there is no sin.
You can promise to go with a friend on a journey; you can change your mind at any time, but not with Me. You can promise somebody something tangible; you can change your mind anytime, but not with Me. If you promise to walk with Me, you must hold on to your word. You must live by your word. You cannot put your hand on the plough and look back. If you look back, that means you don’t know what you’re doing. When I came, I passed through everything. I passed through many hardships, pains, humiliation, and suffering, but I held to My Word. Before I came to this Earth, I’d already given My Father My Word and would not revoke it. Is it easy to die? Is it easy to be crucified? If you committed a crime and you’re being punished for your crime, you’ll understand. But I committed no crime! I committed no sin that warrants Me to be humiliated and die a shameful death. But My Father wanted it to be so, and there was nothing I could do. I Am reaping the reward of My obedience even today.
When you gave your life to Me, you promised Heaven and Earth. Not very long, you swallowed your word and went back to your vomit. Everything you’ve forsaken because of Me, you went back and began to do them again. But you’re not a dog! Why do you go back to your vomit? Why do you deny Me? Can you change your life by yourself? If I don’t change your life, you’ll remain as you are. If you decide to walk with Me, you’ll not be in haste. You’ll stroll with Me until I lead you to your destination. The journey of holiness is a journey of peace, and it’s not a journey you can rush to finish. You must take each step at a time with Me. Whichever direction, whichever route I want Us to take, that’s what We will take. I Am the One leading you, not the other way around. You cannot lead yourself. Therefore, you must be patient with Me.
It’s very shameful to see many of My children go on their own way. All of you claim you’re serving Me, but your hands are full of abomination. Everything My Father and I hate are what you’re doing. But We want you to come to Heaven whenever you finish your journey on this Earth. Why do you choose to go to Hellfire? Any soul that chooses to live in sin chooses to go to Hellfire, especially when you claim you gave your life to Me. When I went to the cross, did I give them half of My body to be crucified? If I had given them half of My body to be crucified and withheld the other part, the mission wouldn’t have been accomplished. Because I gave all My body, this is why you can pray for forgiveness today, and I’ll forgive you. Why then do you give half part of your body to Me? I give You my heart, but not my soul or I give You my soul, not my heart. Why are you deceiving yourself? Do you think you can deceive Me? You cannot deceive Me; you can only deceive yourself. If you decide to walk with Me, keep to your word, and I will not abandon you on the way because I love you.
Lord, I want to walk with You. I want to walk with You because I need Your company. I need You to lead me through this darkness because Your light overpowers every darkness. I cannot lead myself because I can’t see the road ahead. I have eyes, but I cannot see. Therefore, Lord, I ask you to lead me in this journey.
If you promise your child something and you forget, he’ll ask you about it. But if you tell him that you won’t give him again for whatever reason, he will no longer trust you as a father. If you’ve given your life to Jesus Christ, many things are at stake here. Everything you love to do, every life you love to live, must become the things of the past. You must embrace the life of Jesus Christ and His ways. The Bible says in the Book of Luke 9:57-62 that, ““Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.””
It’s very easy to decide that you want to give your life to Jesus Christ; if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’ll quickly go back because you love an easy life. Those who made such a decision in the past carried their death in their hands. Some were sawn in two; some were crucified, and some were crushed to death, all because they decided to walk with Jesus Christ. It’s not an easy journey at all. You must die to the things of this Earth. As a man, you may see a woman you love and ask for her hand in marriage. You may spend all you have and invite your friends and loved ones to attend your wedding. Years later, you may decide you don’t want to marry her again. Nobody will arrest you for it; it’s your decision. When you first married her, it was your decision alone. If you want to divorce her, it’s also your decision. But walking with Jesus Christ isn’t like that. It’s a journey of life. You cannot change your mind halfway. If you do, the same person you disgraced will eventually disgrace you, and you know who I’m talking about. Jesus Christ will neither deny nor abandon you halfway. He will guide and guard you until the end.
Beloved of the Most High, it is good to walk with Jesus Christ because the Earth has nothing to offer than pain, hardship and sorrow. There is no other better life than the life of Jesus Christ. If you’ve given your life to Him, keep to your word and your promise. Serve Him with your Spirit and soul. If you do, you’ll receive a great reward in the end. I pray for you today that Jesus Christ, who shed His precious blood for you, will not abandon you but will keep and guide you until the end in Jesus' name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
