God Blesses Abundantly in Judgment

Many would raise the eyebrows at this statement: God often blesses abundantly when he gives a final judgment to the wicked. While he holds blessings for the righteous and releases it gradually so it won't be so obvious to the wicked. Often, he wants it to look like the righteous receive nothing so that the wicked will revel in their wickedness. 

"He (the sinner) seldom reflects on the days of his life because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart," (Ecc.5). I've seen wicked people enjoy riches way beyond their need, thinking themselves blessed and favored by God, so they never look deeper into their hearts to see deep-seated wickedness there to repent from. They settle in their comfort zones.

When God sees that you are beyond repair and repentance (John says there is a sin that cannot be forgiven) he blinds you with comfort zones and so much material blessings to keep you occupied, too busy with enjoyment to think seriously of repentance and a genuine holy life. Thus, the more the blessings in wickedness, the closer you are to final judgment. 

The righteous, on the other hand, receive meager supplies of blessings--although they are truly blessed and favored in God's eyes--to appear unblessed to carnal people. In this way, the wicked are dissuaded from following the example of the righteous, because the wicked gauges everything in money terms. If you have not much money, you are not blessed. 

They say, if a church has little or no income, it is not blessed. And because they are blessed financially and materially, then they must be doing the right thing. That is the blessing principle of the wicked, and that comfort zone mentality will lead them to a terrible final judgment. If you teach them what is right, they first look at your lot in life. Are you well off? Do you have money? If so, then you must be in the right track. They'll follow you. If not, they won't believe a thing you say. They may be "touched" or "blessed" by the message, by they won't buy it. 

When you see people drowning in blessings so that they are blinded by their comfort zones, they have signed up themselves for their dismal final judgment.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
