Lost In Transit
The devil sometimes makes a lot of sense
One of his key advantages was his ability to prosecute cases beyond every reasonable doubt
No judge will listen to his argument and not be persuaded
He is the king of logic
He understood how the human mind works
He understood how God works
He understood how angels work
The one advantage he had above mankind was mankind’s weakness for coercion
Man wants arguments to come to a logical conclusion
God says if man ate a fruit man would die
The devil understood God perfectly
The devil told man’s wife she wouldn’t die
You will just be like God!
She thought about it
The devil made sense
God does not kill
Nothing God made dies
She believed the devil
She ate the fruit
He ate the fruit
They lost their throne
The devil became their prince
Yet they saw no wrong in what was done
Why couldn’t God come down to the level of logic?
Argue persuasively as the devil did and convince them not to eat the fruit?
The second Adam came
He understood God doesn’t do logic
The devil came oozing logic
He wouldn’t buy it
Strip clubs are springing up all over the nation
Hotels and Brothels are money spinning businesses
The children of promise celebrate and endorse such establishments
Church instrumentalists go to such establishments
"We want to play for you on your JUMP night
We want to be the team for your LIVE shows"
They get the gig and pay their tithe
The church blesses them for being good hardworking Christians
Christians didn’t carry placards to protest
It’s a free country
It’s a free economy
Sons sneak to the clubs at night
Daughters don high heeled shoes and short gowns to taste the fun
It’s all good
Until someone builds a big church for the worship of Jehovah
Common sense will be remembered
You should have given the money to the poor and the needy in the society
You should have built a factory
Religion is the opium of the masses
The shepherd has his flock
Sometimes he also has a dog or two
Dogs follow the shepherd
Dogs run around amongst the sheep
Dogs knows the shepherd’s call
Dogs understand the shepherd’s words
Dogs quote the scriptures as the shepherd did
Dogs hound the sheep and keep them in line
But dogs were not meant for the kingdom
They were not counted as members of the flock of his pasture
They are not his!
The wag their tails
They cozy up to the shepherd and pretend to hear from him
But they are dogs
They insult the sheep of his pasture
Call them gullible
Aren’t sheep meant to be gullible?
If Jesus wanted goats, he would have called them goats
He called them sheep
Dogs would try to tell the sheep
Don’t say “Bah”, Say “woff”
Don’t eat that, eat this
Don’t pay tithe, pay tax
Be logical, be reasonable, USE YOUR HEAD
The very argument of the evil one in the beginning
A believer who uses his head can never walk in the miraculous
A believer who uses his head can never be a true believer
True worship has nothing to do with the head
It is always a matter of the heart
In the realm of logic
Christianity is null and void
A virgin can never be pregnant!
A virgin can never give birth!
Nobody can turn water to wine!
Nobody can speak to the wind!
Nobody can walk on water!
Nobody can heal the sick!
Nobody can raise the dead!
Nobody can die and resurrect!
Nobody can ascend to heaven!
The Holy Spirit cannot come down from heaven!
There is nothing like speaking in tongues!
The lame has an incurable medical condition
The leper can never be healed by spoken word
You cannot use mud to restore blind eyes
How can anybody fall under the power of the Holy Spirit?
Nobody can die to pay for the sin of the whole world
The death of one person cannot redeem the sin of all
Your logic will have to conclude
The Kingdom of Jesus is null and void!
End of story!
Once a believer embraces logic, he is squarely placed in the devil’s stronghold
Nothing makes sense anymore
He or she begins to drift
His language changes
Every pastor becomes a liar
The Kingdom of Jesus becomes the enemy
The church becomes a taboo
Once they leave the safety of the supernatural
They become victims of logic
It is logical
If mosquitoes bite you, you must fall sick
If you fall sick you must go to the hospital
In the hospitals the doctors are god
If the doctor says you will die in five days, just say your goodbyes
That is the world he or she operates in
In the kingdom the supernatural is a must
If a mosquito bites you, the mosquito will die
If you have a growth in your body, you talk to it and it dies
When you pay your tithe, you become more blessed than the person who didn’t pay
You celebrate every great work of God done through your brothers and sisters all over the world
You have life in you
You give life to others
You call doctors a liar
Doctors come to you for help when all else fails
You walk on water
You can be in three places while you are sleeping on your bed
The realm of the sheep and the shepherd is beyond comprehension
No dog can ever understand it
The dog will say but we follow the same shepherd and serve the same King
How come your reality is so different?
How come you cast out demons and heal the sick
How come you command the pneuma with ease?
The shepherd would respond
It is not by power or by might
It is by my spirit
My sheep know my voice
The voice of a stranger they will not hear
Many professors will hold on to their logic and ignore the power of God working right beside them
They will acknowledge that they do not really know how this world came into existence
They will propound theories upon theories and get no closer to the truth
Are you a believer priding yourself upon your logic and common sense?
I daresay you are lost in transit
You started out believing in Him
But now you believe in your sense
How disastrous is that?
To look away from the risen Lord because you can think!
You need to repent
There is nothing logical about Jesus
If you were indeed baptized into Him
There should be nothing logical about you
