Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
There are many issues with us. There is corruption in the world through lust. In a country, for instance, the devil can bring financial corruption like in Nigeria where an average Nigerian is financially corrupt.
The way we see the world is to see it from inside. Corruption even controls the way we plan our business. In a system when we do not know what is right, everything is right. Corruption is a nature that corrupts anything. Anywhere it gets to, it shows its nature. To us in Nigeria, the problem is financial corruption but when we look at other countries, we will see other children (expression) of corruption. Corruption has many children. If God looks at what we see to solve our problems, the problem will still not be solved but God looks into Himself to solve the problem.
1 Corinthians 4:4
For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
Corruption causes blindness, corruption veils. What we call decorum is corruption; it is saying things in a way that veils the truth. Even what we call civilization is corruption. To be in a religion where you fight for what you do not know, bombing yourself and the cause for which you do that is a lie.
2 Peter 1:16
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
Even what we are eyewitnesses to can be a lie. Church can be organized to rob man. The world is organized against God and man. Peter kept repeating “we”, which shows a higher witness. God had to use a lot of words to validate His witness to man. It is not easy to escape corruption. That is the glorious liberty of the children of God. In one of the tongues there, God was saying to us that He will expose liars and lies. Truth is not facts, you can have fact and it is a lie. What is in man is corruption. John 2:24.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Corruption is a lie or a liar. It gives something that cannot change man’s state, something we cannot deal with. Nepotism is a higher corruption than financial corruption. Nepotism means favoritism shown to relatives or close friends by those in power. We can even judge corruption by corruption. When we pray for Nigeria, we should understand why we should pray. The whole world lies in the sway of the wicked one. Just as we have it in Nigeria, it is all over the world; it is just in another picture. What sustains the kingdoms of the earth is wickedness and lie. 1 John 5:19. God’s kingdom thrives by unity while the kingdoms of the world thrive by division.
Christ is not an entity of the earth. No religion of the world has the guts to totally deny Christ. Christ is the Light of the morning, He has always been there. God chose the Jews to prepare the way for His coming, but Christ does not belong to the Jews. You could be a Christian and never meet Christ. If you have not met Christ, your zeal and passion would be a lie.
I am he that has been spoken about from of old. I have a part on the earth. I passed through a nation to come to man. I am for humanity. I am that which is to be preached. I have raised apostles so that man can comprehend me. In this day, I will break many walls for me to reach man. I am the one you should long for, I am the one that you must see; the one that can save, the Lord your God. I will break through doors that have been shut against me, for men must see me. I will yet raise many apostles so that man can see me. This message must be preached before the end comes. The wicked one does not want the end to come, he wants this world to continue but the end must come. I am the end, and I will come. When I am seen, this world will pass away. I want to bring in a new world. This world will roll way for I will be revealed.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Christ is the Light. Creation drew its light from Him. Lie is high and it will take Light to reveal lie. Anywhere Christ is preached, it changes the climate of the earth. For our sake, He is both lights. The lower light deals with the world, the higher light deals with the dragon. What they put in Jesus is Light. When we are preaching Christ, we are preaching the kingdom; and his kingdom rules over other kingdoms. By this Light, we will overcome. Amen!
