|The Teachings Of Grace Reveals Man Hypocrisy by Perfectbeing(m): 2:25pm On Nov 20, 2018|
The teaching of the Grace of God always reveals the hypocrisy in men. It makes you see those who are truly doing what they are doing because they want to do it, and those who are doing what they are doing simply out of fear.
I heard a story about Andrew Wommack.
He had just taught about the grace of God and forgiveness of sins in church. Taught it well according to scriptures.
The next day/Sunday, some of the church members were out there smoking. Andrew was challenged: what you taught last Sunday is the reason our members have started smoking. He replied: what I taught isn't why they started smoking, rather what I taught made them come out openly about what they've been doing all the while that you all never knew (paraphrased).
Nobody suddenly starts smoking because he is taught the grace of God.
The sister wasn't using earring before.
Wasn't fixing her hair.
Wasn't painting her lips and nails.
Wasn't wearing trousers.
Then she hears that all these things don't take people to hell.
And almost immediately.
She begins to do all these things.
You'd look at her and said she's backslided cos she was taught Grace.
She has been putting up an act all the while.
It's now she is living.
This is what she desires to do in her.
She has been living hypocritically
And thing is, the other sister who is also saying this sister has lost it, somewhere inside her, wants to do the same.
But now that she has come out and shown her colour, you can now correct her excess and teach her modesty.
The brother was a faithful tither.
He'd pay first fruit, second fruit, redemption seed, long life seed, etc.
Then he hears that God doesn't curse.
That tithing is abolished with the law.
He stops giving altogether.
You'd say the preaching made him stop giving.
The preaching only showed you that he'd not been giving willingly. He was just afraid of devourers and curses.
Now, you get the opportunity to teach him generosity as taught in scriptures. And from his heart, he begins to give again.
The minister should never be afraid of teaching the grace of God.
Is there the tendency that his people will "misbehave"?
But it's a good thing.
They are shedding off their scale of hypocrisy.
They are casting off that cloak of fear.
Now you can see them clearly.
Now you can teach them to walk in the Spirit.
Now you can teach them to fashion their desires by the word.
And you'll have people, serving the Lord, not out of fear, but out of love and pure devotion to His cause.
It's a blessed day.
