LEADING: UNCONFESSED FILTHS
MINISTRY: Emancipation Word
STABLE: The Ark Of Jesus Church
MESSENGER: Rev’d Israel Adegbite
WORD IMPETUS: “Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel”. Zechariah 3:3 KJV
THE OUTREACH: The identity of a pig is filthiness. Pigs don’t pretend about this attribute; they are sincerely a bunch of mess. But they don’t hide these weakness; they exhibit it anywhere. Therefore, swine doesn’t pretend; they are sincerely rough. Now, coming to humans, especially some believers; they are artful dodgers, plastics costumes, and compulsive lairs. They sound pious in guile to cover-up blunders. Classifying filths in secrecy is often tagged diplomacy. They call an instance of unconfessed sins boldness. Covered sins is termed smartness. Trustworthiness, openness and cleanliness are believed to be traits of fools. These hidden filths are not limited to only infidelity, they have permeated other relationships like the church, corporate entities, neighborhood, friendships, associations, nations, and international matters. Most dirty linens are kept in the closet until it becomes indelibly stained. Be admonished by James 5:16 “Confess your faults one to another …..”. The price of unconfessed mistakes are much: 1. Prickly Conscience 2. Guilt 3. Hidden sorrow 4. Health Hazard 5. Fears of Detection 6. Hampered Prayers 7. Strained relationship 8. Can’t do well 9. Shame 10. Can’t Obtain Forgiveness. Unconfessed iniquities hinder forgiveness. Unconfessed sin means it is repeatable. Only those who confess errors receive mercy. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” 1 John 1:9. David confessed his adultery, he received mercy. But Ananias and Sapphira didn’t, they died. I admonish you confess and repent like David before it is too late. It takes a million lies to cover a single lie for just a while.
BENEDICTION: Confess, to receive God’s pardon: “For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. (Isaiah 59:3) In the name of Jesus. Amen.
