THEME: DO NOT ABANDON THE FELLOWSHIP
TEXT: Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 10:20
2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostlesâ€™ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
â€œIf we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. â€œ(1 John 1:6)
At this very crucial period when the end is in sight, abandoning the fellowship of the brethren might be suicidal. It might be a direct invitation for the spirit of anti-Christ to overwhelm you. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. If you do not attend fellowship, your faith will not grow. You will not be opportuned to hear those life-transforming testimonies; you will not grow as a believer. So, make it a point of duty to be part of believersâ€™ fellowship.
For those that attend, do you come any time you like? Some people come late for fellowship. Some come when the service is about to close. Yet, there are others that leave before the last â€˜Amenâ€™. There are many so-called believers that branch off to eat and drink before entering the fellowship. Some people eat and drink inside the auditorium and throw dirt and remnants of food particles inside the church. Which group do you belong? Examine your ways so that you donâ€™t attend a service and go back home with curses instead of blessing.
Sing a few warfare songs, thank God for yet another day and then take the following prayer points.
1. Any power assigned to derail my salvation; be arrested by the Holy Ghost. Any spirit of the world making me to take the things of God for granted; be destroyed, in Jesusâ€™ name.
2. Any power that has vowed that I will never make heaven at last: get thee behind me. In the name of Jesus, I rebuke you. Any ancestral power, marine spirit, witchcraft power, challenging my salvation, scatter, in Jesus name.
3. Every spirit of eating and drinking; distraction, sleeping and slumbering, be destroyed. Any power assigned to discourage me, to work against my faith, to bring doubts in my heart. be destroyed, in Jesus name.
