7/14/2013 DIVINE SCALE
The message of today is
titled “DIVINE SCALE” this is the hour for every one of us to measure
ourselves; we need to measure ourselves in the scale of God. We are the
children of the most high; we need to understand the principles of our Father. Jesus
Christ spoke to us about the parable of the sower. Matthew 13:3-9; 18-23……  Then He spoke many things to them in parables,
saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some
seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5
Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they
immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when
the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered
away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and
choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop:
some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to
hear, let him hear! It is my prayer that everyone will have their own seed in a
good land in the name of Jesus Christ…… 18 “Therefore hear the
parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom,
and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what
was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20
But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and
immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself,
but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises
because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received
seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and
the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But
he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and
understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some
sixty, some thirty.”  Verse 19 talks
about understanding the word of God; today understanding is the best thing for
us. Proverbs 4:7&5-….. Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding. 5 Get wisdom! Get
understanding! As we come before the Lord, let us understand what the Lord says.
The word of the Lord is perfect; nobody can add anything to it. Psalms 19:7…. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is
sure, making wise the simple. God wants us to receive our seeds in a good land.
When you consider God as number one, He considers you as number one in His list
of prosperity, blessings, and abundance. Everyone has to weigh himself/herself
to know the area they belong; whether the ones received at the wayside, the
ones that fell on the stony places; the ones received by the thorns, or by the
good land. God is not mocked; Galatians 6:7…… Do not be
deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Everyone that sows good things will receive good things; God gives abundantly,
He is a gracious God. Psalm 86:5&15….. For You, Lord, are good, and ready
to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You. 15
But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, Longsuffering and
abundant in mercy and truth. Matthew 9:13…. But go and
learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.
‘For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” The grace
and mercy of the Lord is upon us; and when the mercy of the Lord is upon us,
what we are struggling for will begin to struggle for us; may the Lord answer
that prayer, in the name of Jesus Christ……
Those you received it by the
wayside, are those who hear the word of God but do not understand it. I love
Peter so much; because whenever Jesus Christ told a parable, he will always ask
the meaning; because he wants to know. It is very important for us to
understand the word. The word of God says honor your father and your mother
that it may be well with you; that you may live long in the land which the Lord
your God has given you. In the life of the children of Israel; when a father is
dying, he releases blessings upon his children. In Genesis chapter 49, Jacob
blessed his 12 children; he blessed those who desired blessing. Isaac blessed
Jacob in Genesis 27:28-29….. Therefore may God give you Of the dew of heaven,
Of the fatness of the earth, And plenty of grain and wine. 29 Let
peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, And
let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, And
blessed be those who bless you! In Deuteronomy chapter 33 Moses blessed all the
children of Israel; making us to understand that the father’s blessing is so
important; and I pray that the Lord will bless you; in the name of Jesus Christ…..
When we have become great,
we should not forget what the bible says. Jesus Christ died for the sinners,
and if Jesus died for sinner, it means that everyone must embrace sinners. You must
make sure to pray for them and not to mock them. In John chapter 8; a group of
people brought a harlot for Jesus to judge but He said to them “whoever has not
sinned among you, let him cast the first stone” nobody threw the stone; instead
they departed one by one. Jesus then said to the woman “Woman, where are those
accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one,
Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” If
we remember that Jesus Christ told us to love; we will understand that we need
to love even the sinners. Praise the Lord every one……. Ephesians 5:22…. Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. You
do not need to submit to another person’s husband; some people have rated other
people’s husband more than they have rated their own husband. If you do not
have the spirit of submission and you are holding the bible then, you do not
understand the word. These are the seeds that fell by the wayside; and the
birds came and devoured them.
Ephesians 5:25…. Husbands love your wives, just as Christ also loved
the church and gave Himself for her. Do we love our wives as Christ love us? Jesus
Christ gave His life to us; is there any man in the house that can say “father,
anything that is coming as calamity to my wife let it fall on me. Any man here
that will say instead of my wife to die, let me die.” But that is what Jesus
Christ said, and it is supposed to be your prayer “instead
of my wife to die, father let me die”. Jesus gave His life; for us to be
destroyed Jesus was destroyed; for us to die, Jesus died; for us to suffer
Jesus suffered; in order to receive the crown of life, He received the crown of
thorns. Every good thing that is happening to us, opposite of it, Jesus Christ
took; and that is how it is supposed to be. Is there any time your wife is sick
and you say “father, lay that sickness on me.” The bible says in Isaiah 53:4-5…..
Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him
stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for
our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our
peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. So He was wounded for us;
how many people want to be wounded because of their wives? We need to understand
the scripture.
Divine scale, weigh yourself.
Jesus Christ made us to understand that your neighbor had to offend you 70
times 7 before you can retain that sin; which is 490 times a day. When you
curse every day in your prayer “holy ghost fire consume”, if holy ghost fire
comes down and consumes, if the person dies, you have not saved a life. Am not
saying we should not pray; but we pray for victory, to destroy their spirit,
and if they fail to withdraw their evil hands from us, they will face the judgment
of God.  If you do not love, you cannot
see God. 1 John 4:7-8….Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God;
and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does
not love does not know God, for God is love. Many times we feel we know God;
but we don’t know God because we do not love. If you love your neighbor as you
love yourself; you will do everything you are doing for yourself for your neighbor.
If you do not love your neighbor as you love yourself, you are just holding the
bible and coming to church for nothing. The judgment of God will come into the
house of God, and it going to be so severe. 1 Peter 4:17-18…. For the time has
come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first,
what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18
Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the
sinner appear?  There are some ministers
of God who do not understand what they are holding; some organizations are full
of enemity and hatred. Some pastors are using charm; everyone will stand before
the judgment seat of Christ; because Christ will judge everybody according to
his work. There is no partiality with God; Romans 2:11-12…. For there is no
partiality with God.12 For as many as have sinned without law will
also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged
by the law. God is working and is telling every one of
us to change. Many times we pray and call on the Holy Spirit to fill the
church; the church that is full of enemity where people fight themselves, go
against each other, full of jealousy and envy; God is not in that church. We might
think that the presence of God is around, but it is not; because at times we
see emotion as spirit. Emotion is different from spirit.
When you hear the word of
God and you do not understand it, ask. God is not an author of confusion; a
house divided against itself cannot stand. There is no way we can turn our
house upside down and we want to pray; the husband is praying one side and the
wife is praying somewhere else; maybe the children are somewhere too; and we
say that God is in the house. God is not in that house; and if it is happening
in the house of God, God is not in that church. James 3:13-18….. Who
is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his
works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter
envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15
This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16
For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are
there. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then
peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without
partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness
is sown in peace by those who make peace. 
Hebrews 12:14….. Pursue peace with all people,
and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. In this church, let
church make us, do not let church break us. If we have come to church, we have
become one family; if we want the miracle of God to take place; let us love one
another. Psalm 127:1….. Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor
in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake
in vain.  I do not understand how
a husband and wife cannot talk to each other for one week, will come to church
and lift up their hands to praise God. God will say what kind of hypocrisy is
this? Ephesians 4:26……. “Be angry, and do not sin” do not let the sun go down
on your wrath.  To be angry is not a sin,
but to extend it beyond necessary is a sin.
Ladies and gentlemen, some fell
by the wayside; the bird came and picked it up, so there was nothing there
anymore. When you hear the word of God, you must understand it; when we are
unhappy the devil is happy. The only thing that can make the devil to cry every
day is when we are rejoicing. There is no sin in been angry, but you are
brothers and sister, we need to come and pray together. Your brother or sister
can be naughty, that does not mean that it has to be forever. Go and hold your
family together and let peace reign, because charity begins at home. If anybody
is going to heaven, you must love. Any exam you do on earth and fail, there is
an opportunity to retake it; but if anyone misses heaven, he/she has missed it
forever. To miss heaven is to get lost forever, and we really need to adjust
ourselves today. Whatever stony heart that we have, let us break it. In the day
of Pentecost, the power of the Lord came down from heaven because they were in
one accord. Something that I want to tell all the heads of the family; make
sure that whatever happen; if it happens at night and it cannot be settled
then, make sure it is settled in the morning; if it happened in the morning,
settle it at night. Do not let the sun set on your wrath; because if God says “this
is the way I am going to bless you”; you are going in different way, how can he
bless you?
1 Corinthians 13:8….Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies,
they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is
knowledge, it will vanish away. This means God never fails; so if love never
fails, God never fails. Love covers multitude of sins, for if you genuinely
love the person, no matter what he/she does you must forgive. If you do not
forgive, that means you do not love; an unforgiving spirit is a demonic spirit.
When you receive unforgiving spirit you can kill, destroy or destabilize
because you do not have it. You need to forgive, go home and call those you
have not called in a long time; those whom you have not talked to in a long
time, go to them; talk to them and pray with them. They may say he has failed
that is why he called us; do not worry about the words; if you continue to
think about it, you will not do what God asked you to do. When Jesus was on the
cross, people were mocking Him; they said “you saved people, why can you not
save yourself”; are you telling me that Jesus cannot save Himself? But He had to
remain silence for the scripture to be fulfilled and for our salvation. I want
to say to all the couple make peace with your wife, make peace with your
husband. Today everybody must make peace with family members and friends. You have
been coming to church, paying your tithe, little thing can make you miss your
blessings. Do not let anything make you miss your blessings.
Do not be the one that falls
on the wayside, because of no understanding. Do not be the one that fell on the
stony ground, because there is no root there; the storm of this world just took
it away from them and they ran dry. I do not want the word of the Lord to run
dry in your heart.  May the blessing of
God be upon you in Jesus Mighty name……
Remain Blessed in the Lord
