KEY SCRIPTURE:2 Timothy 2:19 KJV” Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity”.
The strong exhaustive dictionary defines iniquity as ‘ an unrighteousness of the heart and life’, or a deed violating law and justice. God would not use an individual who violates his laws and is not just. Such a person is crooked. The following is what God will use. 2Timothy 2:21 NET “So if someone cleanses himself of such behavior, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart, useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” May you set yourself apart from every crooked way and be a vessel unto honour ready to be used by the Lord for every good work.
God is holy and cannot work with an unholy vessel. Dear brother or sister you have just one life to lead, and you must make that life count for God indeed. Your days should not be wasted at all. This is the reason you must make yourself “usable”. Every unclean thing in your life must be totally destroyed. It would cause your destruction, if you allow it, like the small-town Ai did to the well favoured army of Israel, led by Joshua. Achan’s accursed stuff made the whole camp of Israel to sting before God. God left them because of the accursed things and so, they were beaten and chased by the Aians. Sin of any form and kind is a reproach unto any people, but righteousness always exalts a people. (Proverbs 14:34).
IT was after the accursed man with the accursed things were found and destroyed that God was ready to work with them and show them how to conquer, and actually won the battle for them. Satan in these last days is devising all kinds of mischievous ways and worsening the condition of sinners. They need to be saved and set free. We need God’s supernatural hands to work along with his servants. We cannot afford to do things that would stay His finger away from our lives. Luke 11:20 KJV” But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.” His finger is all that we need to stop the enemy. May we do that which would keep His finger with us always.
I have renounced every hidden act of dishonesty and by manifesting the truth, I commend myself to the conscience of all men in the sight of God. My life is on fire for God.
2 Corinth 4:2 KJV” But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God”.
Joshua 7:24 &, 25 KJV And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So, the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.
