Your Righteousness Must Exceed That Of Scribes And Pharisees

Sunday 2nd June 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 1 Kings 17:1-7

Topic:- Your Righteousness Must Exceed That Of Scribes And Pharisees

Text:- Matthew 5:20

For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. See Matthew 5:20.
Before a Man of God can become a Man of Fire, his righteousness must be greater than that of the Pharisees, Scribes and Sadducee. Even Jesus Christ told the people to do what they say and that they should not do what they do, for the say, and do not. See Matthew 23:3.

There are numerous so called Men of God that are not good, in which examples you can’t follow. If you move closer to them, you will see that they are full of maggot inside. They make strict rules that are hard for people to obey, they try to force others to obey all their rules, but they themselves will not try to follow any of those rules.
Some of these false men of God put their members in bondage and captivate them to the extent that even if they are seeing their wrong doings, they will not be able to correct them or say anything.
They are so proud that they did not respect even their boss; they use money to pay their way through. They want everything to be done by them, and the people follow them dogmatically.

This will make us to talk about four kinds of Churches:-
1. An Empire Church. This type of Church is kind of wrong Church which emerges from the decision of a man, the founder. Is for personal ambition, and for his need to be met. And as a result of all these, he will start a Church that God did not send him.
2. A Club Church. A club is when a group of people decide to have a Church for God without God’s authorization. What they would have is a club and it will not be a Church supported by God.
3. A Cult Church. This kind of Church originated when the devil or his agents start a Church to deceive people. This type of Church are numerous in this dispensation. They will put animal on the ground before the foundation will be erected.
4. A God-Ordained Church. God is the foundation of this God Ordained Church. And is Him that calls a man by Himself to lead the Church. He will make a covenant with the Man of God to refer whenever he faces any challenges. He will also calls people to become member to team up with the Pastor to achieve His original purpose. So the Man of God of this fourth Churches will be a Man of Fire, if he did not later derail. See Acts 2:47b.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, give me the grace to be the hearer and doer of your Word, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, uproot from my all my character and attitudes the doings like that of Pharisees and Scribes, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, with Your mighty hand, deliver all the ignorant members that have been captivated in a Cult, Empire and a Club Church, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Oh Lord God, remove every spirit of copycat from me henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5. Oh Lord God, give me the grace to be a good example to others, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
