Apostle Grace Lubega
Revelation 3:1(KJV); And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
The altars from which we minister must constantly be burning with God’s fire.
Sadly, we live in a time where for some, the altar is ready, the sacrifice is prepared but there are no flames.
People do everything possible and are engaged in all forms of church programs to create the impression of fire but the hearts of men remain cold.
Some are calling fire from heaven and having no results because they have ignored the fact that in this dispensation, we do not call fire from heaven but call fire out of ourselves.
The Bible says of such that they are alienated from the life of God (Ephesians 4:18).
Like the church at Sardis in our theme scripture, they may think that they are alive yet to God, they are dead.
You may have a form of godliness and yet be dead (2 Timothy 3:5), worship God and yet be dead, do all sorts of things to show that you are born again yet you are dead, to the extent that salvation becomes a very heavy burden.
Alienation from the God-life starts from the place of ignorance. This is the highest form of death.
The church at Sardis was dead to God because they were ignorant and did not know it.
What makes you alive unto God is the increasing knowledge and revelation of His person.
FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 4:18, 2 Timothy 3:5
Alienation from the God-life starts from the place of ignorance. What makes you alive unto God is the increasing knowledge and revelation of His person.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your word. We are living in the times of the fulfilment of prophecy that in the last days, knowledge shall increase. I receive knowledge with an open spirit and a ready mind. Lord I choose to pay the price to know. Every day, you launch me into greater depths of your person. The more I know, the more alive I am to you and the more I manifest the God-life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
