In Christendom over two billion people believe in God in their own way, not the Bible way. The question is, who believes what God has promised? Who believes every word? Only when the Lord speaks to us personally through the proclamation of the Word, which brings forth faith and reveals the promises unto us, then we have a living connection with Him and the communion in the Holy Spirit. That is when we truly believe Him because our faith is anchored in His Word.
God has allotted His Word, a scriptural promise to His people for every age. With the intent of using His Word to open up a door of escape from His impending judgement on the ungodly and unbelieving. That scripture allotted for that age is revealed to them by the mouth of adispensational prophet that was commissioned. The Word of God traditionally comes first only to the Prophet who is anointed to reveal the secrets of God. (Amos 3:7) “God will do nothing but revealeth His secrets to His servants the prophets.” It is instructive to note that His Word don’t come to the local assembly Pastor, the erudite teacher, not even the blazing evangelist or the rugged Apostle besides the General Overseers, Pope, the Arch-Bishops that has no Scriptural recognition. Whoever therefore ignores the unpopular voice of the Prophet of their day and follow the popular internationally renowned preachers will have to endure the condemnation of God.
Follow me to unveil God’s allotted Word for each age because these things happened unto them and were written for our examples on whom the end of the world has come, to the intent that we should not lust after them. (I Corinthians 10:6,11).
- THE ADAMIC AGE
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (Gen. 2:16-17). “The message of the hour for our first parents, Adam and Eve was “DO NOT EAT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, that was the doctrine of the Devil”. It was given by the prophet of all prophets, God. When He manifested as a man in a human body called Jesus, He was called “Son of man” meaning also a prophet. (Matt. 8:20). This revelation was given to Adam and Eve to be protected from the adversary who will definitely come to tempt themto dispossess the Word of God through unbelief to trigger the consequent judgement of death upon them. No other sacrifice supersedes their careful observance and obedience of the commandment. It is said that obedience is better than sacrifice, meaning excuses, interpretations, religion or other forms of godliness are distraction. They failed and lo they listened to another voice. (John 5:43). The consequence of disobeying God’s word is usually severe “and ye shall surely die” and that was the genesis of the entering of death in the human race. We must watch the scripture for our day.
The message of the hour to the age of the people of Noah was “ENTER INTO THE ARK”. (Luke 17:20 – 27) “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Oh, how sad that they ignored the Prophet Noah, their dispensational prophet. The secret of God’s plan of destruction was revealed to him and he in turn went about building the ARK of safety, from death . “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. And God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Gen. 6:8 and 13) Again, the consequence of disobedience, failing to believe Noah’s message to enter the Ark was death by flood. You remember the people then were giants, the ladies were beautiful but unbelief, the original sin was their undoing. We must note that the message of Adam was not relevant for the age of Noah. Only the allotted scripture for Noah’s age was significant to the people. That was the reason Noah could not take the scripture for Adams’ age because it could not have worked.
THE AGE OF LOT
Abraham was the dispensational prophet for that age of the existence of Sodom. The secret of the destruction of Sodom by fire was not hidden from Abraham. “And the LORD said, shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; and the Lord said, because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous. And Abraham drew near, and said, wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? (Gen. 18:17, 20, 23). What was the message of the hour to Lot, his family and to the people of Sodom. “… Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed”(Gen 19:17). Whoever ignored this voice was destroyed. But as it was in the days of Noah, the people in Lot’s age also did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. (Luke 17:28-29). If the Angels had come with the message of Noah, it would not have worked. We must of necessity RECOGNISE and ACT on the message of our age.
