1.The Bible says: “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse” [Romans 1:20] The Godhead is the PROPHETIC REVELATION of God. In Eden, the Godhead was concealed in the TREE OF LIFE and the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL was the PERVERTED IMPOSTOR. The PROPHETIC REVELATION of the Godhead was also not hidden from angels, as it is written: “And again, when he bringeth in the FIRSTBEGOTTEN into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him” [Hebrews 1:6] The FIRSTBEGOTTEN is Jesus Christ, the PRISTINE REVELATION of God and “… the EXPRESS IMAGE of his PERSON” [Hebrews 1:3] But Satan, DISTRACTED by his ambition, derailed from FAITH and subjected the Godhead to REASON. He fell into SELF DELUSION of deity and PERVERTED the Godhead into a mixed brew of GOOD GODS and EVIL GODS. The KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL is the Pandora box of FALSE RELIGION and Satan is the masquerade behind the pantheon of gods. I witness there is ONLY ONE TRUE GOD and in Him is no “YIN YANG” or “…variableness, neither shadow of turning” [James 1:17]
2. The Bible says: “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD GOD MADE COATS OF SKINS, and clothed them” [Genesis 3:21] Evidently, lambs were killed, and BLOOD shed before God made “coats of skins” for Adam and Eve. The “coats of skins” were physical tokens of the PROPHETIC REVELATION of God as the “…. LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” [Revelation 13:8] Adam and Eve were reconciled to God by the BLOOD of the LAMB and taught their children to KNOW and WORSHIP God by FAITH in His REVELATION and not by REASON. In the course of time, “…Cain brought of the FRUIT OF THE GROUND AN OFFERING unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the FIRSTLINGS OF HIS FLOCK and of the fat thereof” [Genesis 4:3-4] Abel stayed through to the Godhead, but Cain denied the SUPREMACY of PROPHETIC REVELATION. There was no doubt Cain had a good religious background. He had the rituals of religion as we do today and was ready to spend his resources in the service of God.” … And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect…” [Genesis 4:4-5] This generation, like Cain, is DISTRACTED by rituals of religion and largely denies the Godhead in favour of a LIFELESS CANDY-COATED GOSPEL.
3. The Bible says: “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH…” [1 Timothy 3:16] John called our attention to God walking among men, saying: “Behold the LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world” [John 1:29] The LAMB OF GOD is God offering Himself as propitiation for our sins before we were formed. When John spoke, he also confirmed that Jesus Christ is the “…. LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” [Revelation 13:8] Jesus Christ is God MANIFEST in FLESH and BLOOD in the same way the Godhead was concealed in the TREE OF LIFE and ”… IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD bodily” [Colossians 2:9] You cannot have any meaningful relationship with God until you KNOW and ACCEPT WHO GOD SAYS HE IS. Satan knows that and does not want you to be established in the Godhead. I cannot REVEAL the Godhead to you! The best I can do is to call your attention to this GREAT MYSTERY and trust God to teach you by His Spirit. If your FAITH in God is limited to what you heard in Church or read in a book you must read the following verse: “… no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to WHOM THE SON WILL REVEAL HIM” [Luke 10:22] I challenge you to consider this sermon prayerfully and in sincerity and the Lord will REVEAL Himself to you as the ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD, who REVEALS Himself in the FATHER, SON and HOLY GHOST according to His PURPOSE.
4. The Bible says: Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” [1 Corinthians 10:12] Every MOVE of God begins with a PROPHETIC REVELATION of the Godhead and burns fiercely with the FIRE of the Holy Ghost. The FIRE burns as long as there are no DISTRACTIONS to the latest REVELATION of God. The Prophet from Judah was DISTRACTED when he REASONED his job was done and sat down to REST [1 Kings 13:1-26] There, the DECEIVER caught up with him and said: “… I AM A PROPHET ALSO AS THOU ART; and AN ANGEL SPAKE UNTO ME by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him” [1 Kings 13:18] The young Prophet had the REVELATION of God until he was DECEIVED by the old Prophet who had the PERVERTED REVELATION of a fallen angel and perished in disobedience [1 Kings 13:15-24] This Church, more than any other in Church history, is DISTRACTED by PROSPERITY OF FOOLS. She is DECEIVED to REST when her warfare is not over. Many of her PROPHETS who went out like FLAMING TORCHES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS are now smouldering embers of their old selves. A great tragedy has befallen the Church as the Bible says: “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, … If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance…” [Hebrews 6: 4-6] Let him that has ears hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
5. The Bible says: “…GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE: That they all might be damned WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH but had pleasure in unrighteousness” [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12] Beloved, you must not be DISTRACTED by the pressing challenges of this dying world. Those who are DISTRACTED from the ONE TRUE GOD are easily DECEIVED to deny WHO GOD SAYS HE IS and end up trapped in STRONG DELUSION of a pantheon of gods. If any man is DISTRACTED or in doubt, let Him turn to the Lord Jesus Christ as John did, when he asked “… Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?” [Luke 7:19] JOHN, the same John who called our attention to the LAMB OF GOD was momentarily DISTRACTED when he stumbled into social and political commentary [Matthew 14:3-4] I affirm God’s love for you and His earnest desire to REVEAL Himself. Seek Him today in sincerity and FAITH and He will clear all your doubts and unveil Himself. Finally, remember, the Lord will come as a THIEF IN THE NIGHT, accept Him NOW as your Lord and Saviour, amen.
