And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 9:62
One of the shortest and powerful message of Jesus Christ is Luke chapter 17:32 which states “REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE”. The story is written in Gen 19:26. The Lord commanded Lot and his wife and two daughters to depart from Sodom and Gomorrah. They were privileged because an angel of God held their hands to lead them out, but the command was “don’t look back”. Unfortunately, Lot’s wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt. Every Christian who looks back that is goes back to his old ways, sins, etc is regarded to have looked back, that means such a Christian has gone back to his vomit. Who is that person that will vomit and like to eat it again? I have never seen anyone except dog. In 2Peter 2:20-22 it is written “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” This is regarded as backsliding, looking back and compromising. It is not a news that every believer or Christian is still living in this world of corruption, temptation and daily invitation and exposure to sin. It is therefore necessary to know what to do to stand firm, steadfast, unmoveable, unyielding so that we can enter the kingdom of God which Christ has gone to prepare for us.
The devil with all his devices (social media, entertainment, pleasure, worldliness, magic, fashion, music, dressing, technology facilities) is pulling us on one side, to his side and God on the other side through his available resources (the bible, Holy Spirit, Pastors, preachers, miracles, revelations) is pulling us to his side, so man is the centre of the struggle and battle between God and Satan, Light and darkness, Good and bad, which side will you go? To be on God’s side then you must not COMPROMISE (means don’t accept satanic offers in place of God). The following will help you to remain steadfast and don’t become another Lot’s wife.
This is my secret as a Christian.
Don’t forget that one will chase a thousand but two ten thousands. Imagine the ratio of what one can do and what ten will do. We are called unto fellowship with God and with one another. Therefore, don’t forsake the assembly of brethren, the saints if you must remain steadfast to inherit our heavenly father’s kingdom. Daniel and his companion Meshach, Shedrack and Abednego were able to change the decree of death issued by the king in Babylon because of their fellowship with God and one another. Daniel 2:17-19.
Nowadays, work has turned many Christians to Sunday worshipers, many parents are now absentee fathers and mothers. It is not right, make sure you attend mid-week services, your absenteeism because of work is end time satanic agenda, God will help us.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I have discovered that what I have written here is the only antidote to COMPROMISE. Also these principles are becoming increasingly difficult for Christians due to global economic recession, civilisation, modernisation, philosophy of men, materialism, immoralities, financial hardship and societal expectations.
Consequentially, it takes personal/self determination, heavenly determination and total dedication to please God and displease self and people to do them. Please, Christ is coming very soon, don’t compromise your Christian faith or look back, be like Daniel in Babylon, Joseph in Egypt, Paul in new testament and host of other disciples who died for their faith in Christ. It is a very hard time to be a Christian but His GRACE is SUFFICIENT FOR US.
Be rapture ready.
