WHAT IS THE BEST THING TO ASK GOD AFTER SALVATION? (PART 1) – Exodus 33:13 (KJV) and Psalms 103::7 (KJV)
Exodus 33:13 (KJV)
“Now therefore, I (Moses) pray thee, if I (Moses) have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I (Moses) may know thee (God).
Psalms 103::7 (KJV)
He (God) made known his ways unto Moses, his acts (miracles, signs and wonders) unto the children of Israel.”
Let me ask you first: what is the best thing to ask God after salvation? You shall receive the answer to this question as you read this publication.
The present day Nigerian Christians are the Moses Generation because they are still in the wilderness.
Why? It is because they are miracle seekers as the children of Israel were miracle seekers in the wilderness.
Despite the fact that God wrought raw miracles for them right from the land of Egypt to wilderness, they were never interested in the ways of God but only in the acts of God (miracles ).
It was only Moses who was interested in the ways of God, that is, he was the only one who was interested in having a personal walk and close relationship with God : Exodus 33:13 (KJV) and Psalms 103::7 (KJV) “Now therefore, I (Moses) pray thee, if I (Moses) have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I (Moses) may know thee (God), that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people…..He (God) made known his ways unto Moses, his acts (miracles, signs and wonders) unto the children of Israel.”
For Nigerian/African Christians to get out of wilderness, all the foxes of many pastors destroying the vineyard of God must be completely destroyed and wiped out.
Nigerian Christians are miracle seekers; they are not interested in having a personal walk and close/intimate relationship with God but signs, wonders and miracles. They are Moses Generation. They are full of religion without righteousness. They observe meticulous details of the church doctrinal teaching without personal walk and close/intimate relationship with God!
The Lord Jesus Christ told every believer individually what we should seek first after salvation experience: Matthew 6:33 KJV “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” He mentioned three (3) things:
- Seek ye first the kingdom of God – this is the number one thing to seek first (the first) – an individual salvation experience.
- His righteousness – this is the number two thing to seek (the second) – individual/personal walk and intimate relationship with God by righteousness and holiness.
- All these things shall be added unto you – this is the last thing in the order. It is the third thing to seek (the third) which is the benefits of fulfilling number one (the first) and number two (the second). These benefits include healing, victory, breakthrough, in fact, miracles, signs and wonders. And they are determined and dependent of the sovereignty of God. Therefore even though you don’t get your desired benefit(s), it must not stop you from growing and developing your personal walk and intimate relationship with God
Most pastors or General Overseers of true Bible believing churches are genuine and started well with God but just like one mistake (error) made by Moses, they themselves have made one mistake or the other – they have fallen into errors as any man of God is fallible. They caused their congregants (church members) to be miracle seekers (the last thing to seek – the third thing) while they themselves are miracle workers – they are NOT the workers of personal walk and intimate relationship with God. This is an error!!!
Any genuine pastor or man of God/General Overseer who makes the church members to be miracle seekers has fallen into an error. And any genuine pastor or man of God/General Overseer who has fallen into error (s) and refuses to repent and change, God will raise another genuine pastors or men of God /General Overseers who will be like Joshua to lead the present Nigerian/African Christians to the Promised Land from the present wilderness that Nigerian/African Christians are.
These true Christians will be Joshua Generation who will enter the Promised Land from the wilderness – and these Joshua Generation kind of Christians will not be miracle seekers but they will be highly interested in having a personal walk and close (intimate) relationship with God first: Joshua 24:15 (KJV) “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Do you know that after personal salvation experience, an evil and adulterous generation seeks miracles, signs and wonders? After your personal salvation experience, seek righteousness and holiness by means of growing and developing a personal walk and intimate relationship with God in Christ Jesus.
According to our Lord Jesus Christ, He said evil and adulterous generation seeks miracles, signs and wonders: Matthew 16:4 KJV and Matthew 12:39 KJV “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. But he (Jesus Christ) answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:”
This species of Christianity of Joshua Generation will be the ones that signs, wonders and miracles will follow them – not them following the miracles, signs and wonders because these present day Christians are Moses Generation following miracles, signs and wonders in contradiction to the scripture : Mark 16:17-18 KJV “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
God will raise genuine pastors/General Overseers like Joshua who will be saviors (deliverers ) from the Christian body (from Zion) to take over from the pastors who are like Moses Generation with the mandate of the main purpose of leading the present Nigerian/African Christians to the Promised Land of the practice of true Christianity for God is not respecter of persons: Acts 10:34 (KJV) “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:” God has used genuine pastors /General Overseers who have fallen into errors now to lead the present day Christians from the land of Egypt to the wilderness just exactly like Moses.
I believe all the genuine men of God/pastors/General Overseers who have fallen into error(s) unknowingly/ignorantly will correct themselves and change their mind and messages on prosperity gospel by forsaking and denouncing it (the doctrine of prosperity gospel) as they are Heavenly conscious to make Heaven at the end and also for the sake of the future generation of Christianity in Nigeria/Africa.
True men of God/pastors/General Overseers in Nigeria and Africa all over who have fallen unknowingly/ignorantly into doctrinal error(s) by the prosperity gospel need to correct themselves and change just exactly like what Evangelist /Pastor Benny Hinn did on prosperity gospel.
Benny Hinn, televangelist faith healer and prosperity preacher, has renounced the prosperity gospel. Benny Hinn has a new outlook on this teaching and says ‘THE GOSPEL IS NOT FOR SALE’.
The genuine men of God should look into the future and think what will be the state/level of Christianity in Nigeria/Africa in 50 years time by the year 2072? The genuine men of God should teach the present day Christians how to have a personal walk and close relationship with God after their salvation experience.
If prosperity gospel (raising millionaires, billionaires, trillionaires) continues instead of discipleship (raising real Disciples of Christ) /kingdom Christianity for the kingdom of God in Nigeria /Africa, by the year 2072, many Christians in Nigeria will turn to Islam or become atheists!
Most of the time, ninety nine (99%), God works on His established principles and policies from the word (the Holy Bible ) by the Holy Spirit – not on the wrong messages of the prosperity gospel because many Christians have been discouraged and disappointed by the prosperity gospel pastors thinking that God has disappointed them.
God never disappoints. He is a faithful God and loving Father if you have a robust personal walk and intimate relationship with Him – 1 Thessalonians 5:24 KJV “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
The sad and disappointing experience comes when what the prosperity gospel pastors have told them failed – did not come to pass – did not manifest into the achievement of fulfillment in their lives, even despite the fact that they do pay the sacrifice of all what the prosperity gospel pastors ask them to pay like sowing money seed, seed faith or material seed, first fruit offering to serve as the catalyst to provoke God to answer them or give them their miracles speedily.
The biggest fox (scam) in Christianity in Nigeria and Africa all over is prosperity gospel!!!
It (prosperity gospel ) must be killed and destroyed in the vineyard of God (THE BODY OF CHRIST – THE CHURCH); the fox (scam) of seeking miracles, signs and wonders first, instead of seeking righteousness and holiness by means of growing and developing a personal walk and intimate relationship with God in Christ Jesus after salvation experience.
The grave consequence of fox (scam) of seeking miracles, signs and wonders first after salvation is disappointment, frustration and discouragement to Christians which may nuke/cause them lose their faith; and the outcome is that they will go ahead to forsake and abandon Christianity and thereafter embrace Islam or Atheism (become atheists) or better still any other religion apart from Christianity.
Prosperity gospel ministers have made them believe that they are serving God because of what they can gain from Him (God) – they are not serving God because He is God – they are not serving God purposely and primarily to have a personal walk and close relationship with Him.
The bitter truth is that God will only do for you what you cannot do – and this is miracle but God will not do what you can do – this is how God answers prayer or gives miracles. For instance, a farmer will go to the farm to cultivate the farm land; clear the bush, plant the seeds, weed it, etc.; after all these farmer’s farming activities, then it is the responsibility of God to bring sun and rain on the planted seeds to germinate for harvest and increase, even if the farmer waters through irrigation system, still it is God that will give increase but the farmer has to play his own role through the activities of planting and watering : 1 Corinthians 3: 6 – 7 (KJV) “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase” \
This is how God works by principles – planting and watering are the human activities (never divine activities). God created bamboo tree and other trees but never created chairs and tables for humanity. Why? He had put in place laws of nature, principles, processes, procedures and orders for man to manufacture or produce chairs and tables through the use of man’s brain and mind – Genesis 8:21 – 22 KJV, Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV and Ecclesiastes 7:29 KJV “…the Lord said….While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease… also he (God) hath set the world in their heart (man’s heart using their brain and mind to manufacture/produce by laws of nature, principles, processes and order)… Lo,…that God hath made man…they have sought out many inventions.”
Prosperity gospel pastors are destroying the future of Christianity in Nigeria/Africa presently through the gospel of “name it and claim it”! Instead they should preach and teach gospel of seeking righteousness and holiness after salvation experience.
Seeking righteousness and holiness is growing and developing a personal walk and intimate relationship with God in Christ Jesus and this is the best thing to ask God after salvation.
