Transcript Summary


1. "For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh." (Philipp. 3:3). Making this a reality has nothing to do with the qualification of man; it has to do with God who has called all of us. It is given to every one of us to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. If it were not given to us, we would not be hearing these things at all. We should not throw these things away lest we do ourselves a disservice and affect a generation. As a matter of fact, we have to hold these things tight because of the level of darkness and the amount of delusion that is coming upon the face of the earth. 


2. Many will be deceived as a result of the darkness coming upon the earth, but our escape is that the Lord has given us something stronger. He has given us doctrine that has brought judgment, such that we can remain steadfast and immovable when waves of darkness come, always abounding in what we have been hearing. It is the mind of God in this season to give us incorruptible things and make the incorruptible conversation real. We need to hear these things and also come into their fellowship via those who share the secrets of these things (1 John 1:3)


3. It is only God that has immortality and dwells in light which no man has seen (1 Tim. 6:16). As such, He cannot be seen unless He is revealed. The wisdom that the only wise God has is the wisdom of incorruptibility. There are secrets of everlastingness in God. Creation did not have the substance of incorruptibility, for it is not found in creation but in God.


4. Advancements in technology have only been programmed to sway men. The only thing we have to depend on is what God says in His word. We should not accept anything contrary to the word of God, regardless of who said it. The scripture is the infallible word of God. Heaven and earth will pass away but not a jot of His word will pass away (Matt. 5:18; Luke 21:33). We may not like it, but that is the truth – the scriptures stand sure and will not pass away. No other book has endured the kind of persecution that the Bible has gone through. 


5. There is a delusion coming upon the earth and the only reference point we will have is the Bible. Nothing can be done against the Bible, for it has come to stay. Those who stood against the Bible have all gone, and several kingdoms have been brought down because of it. We must consider the Bible and how incorruptible it is. Men have used it for all sorts of things, but it remains the same and still holds the truth of God within it. The Bible can be referred to as “Blessed Information Bringing Life Eternal”. It is incorruptible and not one jot of it will go unfulfilled (Matt. 5:18).


6. (1 Peter 1:18). A conversation is the lifestyle of a man and without God’s interference, man’s lifestyle will amount to vanity. We received vain conversations from our fathers. Fathers are custodians of conversations and they have the ability to transfer such conversations. God will raise fathers who are incorruptible and have secrets of incorruption that they will pass down to generations. 


7. "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers…" (1 Pet. 1:18). Silver and gold are a kind of fallen wisdom and knowledge. Wisdom always carries knowledge behind it. There is a kind of substance that purchased our redemption – "...the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot…" (1 Pet. 1:19). The Lamb carries life in His blood. He has a life that is incorruptible and that life is also a wisdom and knowledge that will bring forth a conversation in men. We keep going deeper in the fellowship of the blood, for it has properties that can be converted into a lifestyle that is without blemish. It is such a lifestyle that God wants on the earth. 


8. he truth is resident in the blood. Inside the blood is a kind of life we ought to obey. Fervency of love is the key to being born of the incorruptible (1 Pet. 1:20-23). Fervent love entails obeying some specific commandments that would be given to one, which one must obey against one’s wishes and desires. Fervent charity goes beyond giving good gifts to one another; it entails the giving of commandments to alter the wrong arrangements that are within our souls so that we can begin to walk uprightly. 


9. Any soul that is doing fervent charity is dying; this is because the commandments contained therewith are not palatable for the soul. It is the Lord who raises such commandments and He raises them above the terrain the soul is used to. When a man obeys such commandments, he can be said to be keeping charity. Fervent charity will turn a man into a spirit, and it is only a spirit that can take the incorruptible. This is the kind of heart God wants us to possess.


10. Fervent charity is an exercise. One can almost be offended when one is doing fervent charity, but we must constantly exercise our hearts to keep our consciences void of offence towards God and man (Acts 24:16). Whether we are spoken against or not, we must exercise our hearts not to have any offence. As we exercise our hearts to be void of offence, we would not find it easy but painful. Offence disqualifies one from progressing spiritually. As such, we must see Satan instead when offence wants to arise in our hearts. May we be discerning to do charity the way the Lord would have us do it (Amen).
