TREM Devotional 16 February 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – The Conspiracy Against The Church
Topic: The Conspiracy Against The Church (TREM Devotional 16 February 2021)
“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18 (KJV)
There is a major spiritual conspiracy to intimidate and box the church into a corner. You cannot dismantle the existing evil around us if your voice is silenced. The plan of the enemy is to have your mouth closed. The sons of the wicked are trying to tell you that it’s no more important to serve God. Child of God, you don’t want to come to a point where you are no longer able to talk. I wonder how you want to survive if you are now ashamed of your God. That’s what they want to do- to intimidate you. They want you to hide in the closet and hinder you. They don’t even want you to talk about this God.
What the Church carries is so important; it’s the only weapon that can destroy systems without carrying guns and the devil does not like it. One of the wrong messages from social media that is eroding the minds of church people is that the church is no longer important. They say you can do church in the house via your devices and pay offering through the media. This is a terrible lie from the pit of hell! The Bible encourages us not to forsake the assembly of ourselves together.
Something was trending in our nation recently: the issue about telling Christians to stop paying their tithes because preachers are taking their money. The fact that there are few charlatans around does not change the Bible. They are trying to silence preachers to the extent that when you are taking offering, you are apologizing. It is a master strategy from Satan’s pit of hell so that the gospel can be silenced. They tell you not to obey the scriptures. Unfortunately, people who have been in church where the truths are being taught and who have been blessed by the Word of God are those that are trending this mess. Don’t listen to them!
