Speed kills, even in pursuit of the Gospel



THE Gospel of Jehovah God, through His begotten son Jesus Christ, does not require speeding believers who are concerned only about quick returns. Such believers cease to be relevant.

Temptations are some of the obstacles we encounter as the devil throws spanners into the works.

Even Jehovah God Himself allows such temptations to come our way in order to prove a believer’s worth.

The Son of the true living Jehovah God was once tempted before when led by the Holy Spirit to the mountain. Because Jesus Christ had solid foundation of the Holy Spirit, He overcame Satan.

If you are not a believer of substance, you can easily quit when the Holy Spirit leads you to temptation.

According to Matthew 4:1, “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.”

Isn’t it amazing that the Holy Spirit is leading someone, for that matter, Jesus Christ, to be tempted?

Now, the challenge facing today’s believer is that they do not devote time and attention to gaining knowledge and wisdom of the Word of Jehovah. Instead, many believers have tendencies of rushing the Gospel hence tiring along the way.

If you rush the Gospel without solid foundation of the Holy Spirit, definitely you shall get tired, choked and eventually left behind.

In my 42-year journey with Jehovah God, I have witnessed newly-repented believers, who come preaching FIRE….FIRE, yet without the actual Holy Spirit of Jehovah God.

More-so, such believers have no patience, genuine love, respect of their parents or elders as well as no obedience of Jesus Christ’s commandments.

All they focus on is forging close relationship with pastors, bishops or prophets yet without listening to the guiding Holy Spirit. Remember it is the Holy Spirit that will start fighting and exposing you as a false believer.

My message to you is, do not get tired in patiently pursuing the knowledge of Jehovah God so that you become the source of wisdom for Holy Spirit.

One of my favourite apostles of all time, Paul of Tarsus, says on 2 Thessalonians 3:13: “As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.”

Now, if believers stop honouring their parents but only their pastors, bishops or prophets, it is this same Holy Spirit that will start fighting the believer left, right and centre.

That is because this is in violation of the natural laws of Jehovah God’s commandments.

In Exodus 20:12, our Creator instructs us to honour our parents so that we live long. “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”

I have often witnessed some believers always boasting of giving hundreds, thousands or millions of dollars in churches, but at the same time never care about their biological parents.

This leads to the Holy Spirit fighting such a believer and choking them.

This True Gospel wants believers with spiritual endurance, perseverance, tenacity, persistence, determination, durability, continuity and lasting power in order for them to complete the race.

The Word of God requires believers who are humble, respectful, prayerful, fasting and most importantly, believers with endurance and are unyielding.

When worshiping a true living Jehovah, always bear in mind that one must develop the qualities of understanding the functions of the Holy Spirit step-by-step in order to have the Word sink deep into your hearts, souls and minds.

Always know that the Holy Spirit produces quality not mediocrity, inferiority, amateurism or nonentity.

One becomes a mediocre believer when he or she violates Jehovah God’s commandments while harbouring selfish interests.

When you take this Word step-by-Step, then Holy Spirit comes your way. Once the Holy Spirit comes your way, automatically your lifestyle changes.

According to Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Most importantly, when don’t rush the Word and allow Holy Spirit to take charge, the Spirit of God will help us with our weakness.

Where we do not know how to pray as we should, then it will be the duty of the Holy Spirit Himself to speak to God on our behalf.

Always remember Jehovah God can see what is in people’s hearts. And He knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit speaks to God for His people in the way Jehovah God wants.

To support my teaching, Romans 8:26-27 says: “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he (Holy Spirit) who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”

When we shelve too much speed for earthly things, then the Holy Spirit comes with practical task to make believers take the necessary steps in their lives.

We are saved, blessed and healed, so that we may go out and save, bless and heal others.

Parents and siblings, the Holy Spirit has a really incredible function. Always bear in mind Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Teacher, Lecturer or Professor, and the best ever Evangelist.

According to John 14:26: “But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative–that is, the Holy Spirit–he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.”

In the book of Acts 10:38, when we stop rushing ahead of Jehovah God, abandoning our too much speed, then the Holy Spirit shall come to guide, teach, heal and work with in everything.

“….how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.”

What excites me most is that the Holy Spirit comforts and leads us into all truth. It brings us to Jehovah God.

The Spirit teaches us to forgive even when hurt, no matter the pain. It is impossible to find reconciliation with your neighbour without the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit does not divide believers, instead, it unites them. We wouldn’t be able to get along, if the Holy Spirit didn’t unite us.

The Holy Spirit causes explosive decisions in us.

When we desist from speeding and follow the true Holy Spirit of Jehovah God, even the untalented and incapable among us will always do mighty works.

Such incapables who come to mind include a young boy called David, used by the Holy Spirit to slay giant Goliath. David was anointed by Prophet Samuel so the Holy Spirit would come upon him.

Mark 16:18 confirms my teaching: “…..they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

When we stop speeding and allow Holy Spirit take charge, we can always jump over shadows or walls, with our God!

Holy Spirit-filled people can go through closed doors. If you’re in difficulties at times, and don’t know which way to turn, the Holy Spirit will show you a way out.

Being a believer without Holy Spirit is suicidal. Trying to be a Christian without the Holy Spirit and you won’t get far.

When we have the Holy Spirit, we know how to LOVE. That’s what is good and lovely about Holy Spirit.

When we have the true Holy Spirit, there is completely nothing that can separate us from Jehovah God.

The Spirit always wants us to work with him every time and again, that we love those that appear unlovable. Love makes us equals. In a church that is filled with the Holy Spirit in a Scriptural manner, you can be yourself! Whether you’re able to do certain things or not, everyone is accepted as they are, because God accepts us as we are.
