Topic: PUT ON YOUR CHRISTIAN UNIFORM 1 (https://burningbush.org.ng/category/devotional/)
Bible Reading: Matthew 22:2, 8-11, 13
📖2….”The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
📖8….Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
📖9….Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
📖10….So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
📖11….And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
📖13….Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
🔥Just as the safety of the Jews in Egypt was dependent on the house they were in, on the night of the Exodus, so is the salvation of believers today. For a house to be qualified to protect the Jews in Egypt, it must put on the uniform of the blood on the lintel, and on the two side posts… Exodus 12:22-23. The blood was a uniform that would admit God into their houses, and a repellant of the destroyer from all Jewish houses that had the blood uniform. The blood on the lintel and the two doorposts, conformed the Jews to God’s people then.
🔥🔥In Matthew 22:1-13, as quoted above, it is explicit in verse 10 that, the king who was organizing the wedding for his son was not bothered about the state of his guests, but he was only after the garment he provided for his guests. Whether guests were bad, once they put on the wedding garment (what we call asho-ebi in Nigeria), you are good to go. Observe that in Matt 22:11 & 13, a guest was cast out because he was without the wedding garment. He could be good, but he was without wedding garment. Some that were not cast out could even be bad, but they put on the wedding garments. Without garment, a police, army, air force, navy, etc, become civilians, and won’t have access into any military installation.
🔥🔥🔥Christianity has uniforms that admit a person into the Church, and into safety in the Church. To be admitted into Christianity, you must have unquestionable faith in God…Hebrews 11:6. But to enter into safety in the Church, you must put on the blood of Jesus to secure you from the devourers that infiltrate into the Church to resist (Zech 3:1-4) and accuse (Rev 12:10) the brethren daily. To be qualified to receive this safety uniform as a believer, is a prerogative of God, given as a result of our works…Phil 2:12. So, work and be clothed with the Christian uniform of salvation.
🙏Thank you Father, for unifying me with the Godhead by the blood of Jesus, to protect me from destruction in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, qualify me into your eternal kingdom by the garments of faith and Christ’s blood in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My father, my father, as I put on the uniform of safety in God’s house by faith in Jesus’ blood today, disallow the destroyer from accessing my life in Jesus’ name.
