It is not for the son to disgrace the father. The nakedness of the father is for the son to cover. There people who rejoice and went out laughing and telling the world to come and see how their father is naked. But there are sons who will gather the garments and approach the father from the back and cover his nakedness.
Whoever God used to promote you spiritually or ordain you into an office is like a father to you. You will have to be careful how you relate with that person.
The mistake many do is trying to tore the garments of a servant that was once a blessing to their lives. The garment of a servant is their office and honor. When you go around talking bad and negative against your spiritual father , you invoke curses upon your life and family.
Genesis 9:20-27 Noah began to be a man of the soil, and he planted a vineyard.He drank of the wine and became drunk and lay uncovered in his tent.And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside.
Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned backward, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him,he said,
“Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be to his brothers.”He also said,
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem; and let Canaan be his servant.
May God enlarge Japheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.”
Matthew 14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
Praise and glory be to the Mighty God of heaven and earth . If you want to gain faith and your faith to grow , you must learn to spend time in the presence of God . There is moments that you have to separate yourself from the crowd to that quiet moment with the Lord and the Lord alone . There is the crowd that their purpose is to drain what you already have , there is a crowd of people who will discourage you in your attempt to fulfill the will of God but when you spend time with God , what seems impossible will be possible .
Many a times we cannot understand people of faith because we are not familiar with their lifestyles. There is something that happens in you every moment you enter into the presence of God. There is always a new impactation, new spiritual gifts , fresh anointing , new grace , new strength to overcome evil and fresh power.
When Jesus came out of the mountain after separating Himself from the crowd and the disciples , He came with a new grace the disciples had never seen before . The grace in His life to walk on water . The disciples were not able to understand , they thought He was a ghost . I challenge you today to spend more time with God and less time with men . Don’t spend time arguing with men/women who may not be able to understand your faith , spend time with God who is able to materialize your faith you have in Him.
Matthew 14:25-26 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear.
Wisdom Problem: Proverbs 7:7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding..
Wisdom problem makes a young man who is single go to visit a single lady living alone in the house without expecting a fall into sexual sin and immorality.
Wisdom problem makes a young lady visit a man living alone in their own private apartment or house but expecting to come out a virgin out of that .
Wisdom problem makes a young lady mostly in college to attend wild parties , where they drink until they loose it out but wake up that they were raped in the morning . Then begin looking for society to pity them and punish their rapist .
O our society today is suffering from wisdom problem . The know it all behavior of the mindset of our generation have made them fall into deep ditches and many problems that could have been easily avoided . Don’t think you are too smart than you are !! Avoid all form of appearance of evil . Avoid those corridors you go to date your partner , avoid those physical touches that awakens sexual desires when you are not married . Avoid those age groups and age peers which all they talk about are things that don’t edify.
Avoid those places where sin is insatiable and unavoidable . Above all flee from sexual immorality . Run run for your life both on earth and eternity . A little compromise will cost you your eternity , a little compromise will cost your destiny , a little compromise will lock the gates of Heaven above you , a little compromise will surely demote you .
God’s generals in the Kingdom can be demoted . Even if you are a servant of God , stay in the cause and keep your garment pure , untainted from all evil, a garment that the Devil cannot claim over , a pure garment that can stand the whiles of darkness .
