A Holiness Is Easily Identified But Very Difficult To Find As I Visited Divine Favour Christian Evangelical Ministries Inc., Benin City

A Holiness Is Easily Identified But Very Difficult To Find As I Visited Divine Favour Christian Evangelical Ministries Inc., Benin City

Ephesians 5:27 “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
Ephesians 1:4 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”
Colossians 1:21 “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight.”
2 Corinthians 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
Song of Solomon 4:7 “Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.”

As we await the soon return of the Master JESUS CHRIST from heaven to rapture His church, you should remember that the office or position you occupied in the local church does not qualify you “for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus CHRIST Titus 2:13. Your membership of a local church assembly nor the role(s) you are playing in such a gathering qualifies you for heaven either. GOD is a holy GOD and He is coming for a holy church (individual) without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. Therefore if you are dreaming of spending your eternity with JESUS in heaven, you must look beyond your church activities and maintain TOTAL LIFE OF TRUTH, HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS in all your doings, otherwise it is a fruitless service you are rendering though there may be evidence of the divine power of GOD in your ministry.

In Luke 12:47, the Bible says “And that servant (that supposed Christian), which knew his lord's will (who knows what the LORD demands for making heaven), and prepared not himself (become indifferent to the world), neither did according to his will (nor obeyed the word of GOD), shall be beaten with many stripes (shall receive greater punishment from demons in hell fire). 48 But he that knew not (that unbeliever and wicked sinner in the world today), and did commit things worthy of stripes (who are already condemned to hell fire as a result of their works), shall be beaten with few stripes (shall receive lesser punishment from demons in hell fire). For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” In the light of the above scriptures, many complacent Christians today who think that by reason of their being used of GOD have been qualified for heaven but still have stains in the garment of righteousness shall be disappointed when they will hear the voice of the Master telling them “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” Matthew 7:23. You can see that GOD is not moved with your awesome divine abilities, but He is moved with a soul that worships Him in spirit and in truth for He is looking out for such a worshipper John 4:23-24.

Therefore as I stepped into the hall of worship of Divine Favour Christian Evangelical Ministries Inc., Aduwawa, Benin City, Edo State, on Sunday, 12th April, 2015, which is pastored by Evangelist Margaret Amure, where I went to fellowship with the brethren, I saw a church environment conducive of the HOLY SPIRIT inhabitation. The modesty of the brethren especially those of the choristers caught my attention, which were dressed with long skirts covering to their heels. In fact, it was a remarkable departure of what obtained in our supposed holiness churches today, where members and particularly choristers in the altar usually dressed in miniskirts while sitting in their stands thereby tempting the men in the congregation with their exposed body parts especially their thighs which they deliberately do for seduction because their pastors are enjoying and filling their hearts with those horrible scenes. Wondered why there is no difference in the dressing of a supposed believer and a confirmed prostitute today?

Stepping into this church no doubt will cause you to discover a true holiness preaching and practising church. Apart from the three women who were new comers that was visibly different from their dressing compared to the other women in the church, everyone here maintains true holiness in their modest apparel. No wonder Evangelist Margaret Amure, who has been a worldly pastor for over 20 years before her divine and GOD saving grace encounter in 2012, and having experienced the horrors that awaits sinner Christians in hell fire at their death, does not pamper her remaining members with sweet coated messages. A look into the auditorium tells that many members abandoned her and left for other churches where their worldly pleasures and appetites are oiled, as she turned into a no nonsense and true holiness preacher after her encounter. Parked empty chairs in the back space of the auditorium leads credence to this assumption of mine. Look out for the video titled ‘Back From Heaven With A Message’ By Evangelist Margaret Amure and bless your soul with it.

In her message titled ‘My Wedding Garment’, Evangelist Mrs. Amure was raw in her sermon. In fact, she will sometimes asked the brethren ‘Do you want me to kneel down for you?’ as she ministered the word of GOD with all boldness and courage. It is my prayer that she will never run in vain in JESUS name. Amen.

This post is not to elevate nor promote her church, but a pointer to the fact that “many are indeed called, but only few are chosen” Matthew 22:14 of GOD and she is one of the chosen few gladdening the heart of GOD with her undiluted message of total and complete truth of the gospel. Her heaven and hell fire encounter have transformed her and her ministry into a prepared bride for the uncompromising BRIDEGROOM, our LORD JESUS CHRIST who will soon return for His faithful bride.

Therefore, a true holiness and righteousness church is easily identified but very difficult to find in today’s world because the god of this wicked world is now the presiding and resident pastor of majority of churches on earth. So, when JESUS will come for His bride in the rapture, will your garment be pure and white or stained with sin? Remember, nothing defied will ever enter through the holiness gate of heaven into paradise Revelation 21:27.

We are commanded. “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16.
