Come!!! by AdetoyeAyomikun: 1:39pm On Apr 29
I was talking about this with a friend yesterday. "Don't break the hedge, or else the serpent will strike, and even if the Son of Man will help, you will suffer the pain."

Last year, a man contacted me about having symptoms of HIV, which his family now shares. The problem is not the HIV itself, but that the hospital is saying they're negative. The doctors acknowledge the symptoms resemble those of HIV, but the tests show they are all negative.

He has sought help in several places with the same result. He asked me, "Sir, what can I do? Please pray for me." I told him HIV has one sure way of transmission, above all others. I had to ask him how it started, and then the explanation began.

A story of adulterous acts emerged, but things escalated with his last encounter. He tried to contact the woman involved, but she angrily refused to respond further.

He is now left alone with his problem as the woman has disappeared. I felt compelled to pray, but I sensed that until his wife agrees, my prayers might not suffice.

The next day, I inquired about his wife. He said the incidents started around 2020 and worsened by 2022 when he lost his job. As the sickness became a weekly ordeal for the family, his wife took their two children and left. I was ready to contact his wife directly, but the way he later spoke of her, noting she was the only one working, stopped me.

All I could advise him was to apologize to his wife. "The devil is not that strong against unity. The bridge was destroyed by one but must be mended by both of you. Only then will your prayers be meaningful," I concluded.

Here is my point: Some preach 'once saved, always saved,' but be careful—there are things you shouldn't do. When we discuss consecration, it doesn't just end with fornication or pornography; even a small lie is an abomination.

I know you are a new creature and all things are past, but check your family. What destroyed many of them? Are you not repeating the same mistakes?

The serpent will bite when we give it space—don't give it any. Here's the good news: there is a Savior. Just as the bronze snake was lifted up in the wilderness, and anyone who looked up was healed, so the Messiah is available. No matter the poison, He is still ready to amend both the amendable and the unamendable. He is calling your name like a father to a son, saying, "Come." Fornication may be sweet, but the repercussions are more costly than the sweetness. He is saying, "COME."

The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Leave this notion of hyper-grace and 'I'm saved forever.' You've tarried enough here; "COME" is the message. Drop it all and come. He is ready to wash and clean you. Forget about praying daily, fasting, or being called 'papa.'

Come. He is saying, "Come," before it escalates further. "COME."

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.

John 3:14-15
