"BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER"
TEXT: GALATIANS 4
SIN IS HEREDITARY FROM OUR FOREFATHERS.
Brethren, the theme of our lectures is derived from Galatians 4: 28-31.
The problems, tensions and confusions besetting the entire world emanate from the failure of mankind to comply with the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says that a woman should marry only one husband and vice versa, but a majority of people in the entire world have objected to this divine injunction. It is also said that neither a man nor a woman should commit fornication and adultery, but you do not appear to heed these instructions.
The Bible has also advised us not to kill, tell lies, indulge in the preparations of juju, concoctions etc, but to be humble, patient and peaceful, but nobody wants to comply with these instructions.
Can you realize the gravity of the punishment, which has been meted out to mankind as repercussion for not keeping these instructions of God? All problems, difficulties, wars, famine, economic recession, unemployment which beset the entire world are because of being disobedient and resistant to the divine will and the injunctions of God. God has informed us that Isaac was the son of Abraham and Sarah, and also the son of promise. But Ishmael the son of Hagar, the Egyptian, was not the son of promise. Who is the freeborn and who is the son of bondage? Abraham had two prominent children. He had Ishmael and Isaac, and the latter had to submit more to the instructions of God because he was a child of promise.
As a matter of fact, Isaac was not born of the flesh and blood, but of the spirit, and so, was more submissive to the parents than the other son. You are now privileged to know the difference between the child born of the flesh and blood and one born of spirit. A child born of flesh and blood is the one born through the sexual intimacy of the father and mother during which union the parental tendencies pass through the blood to form the child. The spirit of fornication and adultery, anger, segregation and even sicknesses such as gonorrhea, fits, syphilis etc, also pass from either sex into the child, and that is why it is said that "Blood is thicker than water".
It is through this medium which the Bible says that the iniquities of the parents are visited on the children. It is this blood of theft, fornication, murder, anger, falsehood and other vices which consist of what is known as the flesh and blood which indeed are causing confusion and tension all over the world. When the scripture said that you were sharpened in iniquities and born in sins, these constitute the sinfulness of the parents of the child who are infested or contaminated with theft, fornication, murder, false, anger, treachery, envy, impatience, deceit through whose blood the child is born into the world.
Some of you used to ignorantly say that the children of nowadays are so bad, and I am asking you to tell Me what is responsible for that? It is the parents who are responsible because the sins of the parents are visited on the children. But a child born of the spirit is the promise child born without the sexual union between the husband and wife. This can be made possible through the efficacy of the words of promise by God Himself.
Brethren, there was a certain German national who was hospitalized sometime ago because he was anemic. Consequently, the doctor in charge prescribed that some blood was needed so as to administer blood transfusion for him. When he was informed about this, he emphatically declared that unless the blood is extracted from his fellow German national, the blood transfusion should not be administered. That is the trouble that has engulfed the whole world, racial discrimination. We have various textures of blood because as our faces are different so also are the blood groups on our bodies. Flesh is the carnal body constitution, and you are advised not to get involved in vices such as anger, murder, backbiting, fornication and adultery and the rest of the vices because these tendencies pass through the process of blood into others or even into the children yet unborn. The blood through which a child is born into the world is the true replica of you, and your child will have the tendencies of behaving like you and committing the same vices, which you had been indulging in.
Therefore, when you are told not to commit sins, this instruction is given for your own benefit, and not for the benefit of God Himself, because the sins you commit shall bring more abominations to you, and would further aggravate the tensions and the problems in the world.
THE CHILD DOES WHAT THE PARENTS ARE DOING
You should never forget that whatever you are, that is what your child shall also be. Why do you have to blame your child when he is displaying your tendencies obtained through blood? That is why it is often said that blood is thicker than water because if you are a thief, murderer, malicious person, a fornicator etc, your child certainly will inherit all these characteristics from you through blood and the blood can't be extracted at all. That is the first mistake you have committed. Once you have the sexual union with your wife or husband and you bring forth a child, and you are aware that you are an ill-mannered person or malicious person, do you think that your child will be different from you? Any attempt to exonerate yourself from or dodge the sins your child indulges in is illusive. These are your true tendencies he inherited through blood during birth, and these tendencies are exhibited irrespective of age.
THE ONE SIN THAT CAUSE STANDSTILL IN THE WORLD
If you want your children to be well meaning citizens of your country, you have to cultivate the habits of refraining from all manners of sins, and this is for your own benefit and good reputation. Right now, there is one particular sin, which is waging war throughout the whole world, and it is fighting all the world inhabitants to a standstill, and that particular sin is fornication. Everybody knows that it is bad, yet everybody is enjoying it. It is a truism that your forefathers married as many as five, ten, or twenty wives and despite these numerous wives, they were still not satisfied, they still had to flirt with other women, the numerous children they possessed notwithstanding.
In view of the foregoing, this adulterous blood is transferred into their children during birth. Most of the diseases afflicting humanity today such as syphilis, gonorrhea, leprosy, fits, hypertension etc, are transmitted from one person to another during sexual union, between man and woman. Most of the vices such as murder, malice, anger, hatred, drunkenness are also transmitted to others through blood during fornication and adultery.
That is why when a white man impregnates a black woman or a woman who is not from his race, he will not own that child even though he will do everything humanly possible to support that woman and her child to take care of themselves. If a white man marries a black woman and they bear a child, what do you call that child? Is he a white or black person? That child is mulatto. He is neither a white man nor a black person, and eventually an outcast. His behavior will be abnormal in all respect. Sometime he would have the tendency to behave as a white person and in another period he would equally behave as a black man. Why is it so? If a white man marries a white woman, what will be the complexion of that child? Similarly if a black man marries a black woman, what will be the texture of the body of the child born?
If a black man stays in a white man's country, for a number of years, even as long as thirty years, he will still behave as a black man displaying all the tendencies of a black man, his social interactions amongst the whites notwithstanding. He will still shamelessly display those crude tendencies of uncivilization. It is a surprising thing to notice that the blacks in European countries and in the United States are still behaving in the same way as the blacks in Africa. Involving in bad behaviour although they learn or work as doctors or professors and are professionals in different fields of human endeavours, but yet their many years of stay in these places have never made them change their moral values and concepts because blood is thicker than water.
If you are crafty or indulge in the preparation of juju, concoctions, fornication or murder, you are not just learning how to do it, you inherited it right from the blood because your fathers and forefathers actively indulged in these vices and the tendencies cannot be eradicated just immediately. These are the things which most of the black people do not know, but the whites understand a little bit of this recondite wisdom, but not fully. In the sense that they (the whites) are still indulging in vices such as drinking of alcoholic liquors, snuffing and smoking affecting or destroying their constitution.
If it could be possible for all and sundry to come to the wisdom of this truth, and they refrain from all manners of vices and we hold ourselves together with the surest hope that in the nearest future all will be well. That is why Paul had made a statement, which is recorded in 1 Corinthian 7: 37-40:
"Nevertheless he that standeth steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin doeth well. So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well, but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better. The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth, but if her husband is dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom, she will only in the Lord. But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgement; and I think also that I have the spirit of God".
Why did Paul make this statement? It is because if you marry a child of God, it stands to reason that the blood that will be transferred to your children will be pure with fear, love, peace and other attributes of degree of the qualities of God in the character and the behaviour of the person. Why it is difficult for a man born of the flesh and blood to practice the words of God is that he has been a spoiled and contaminated man right from his nature. What Our Lord Jesus Christ employed in comforting humanity is that we are saved by sheer grace and mercy of God. Well, that should be accepted just like that. Therefore, there is no other way than to accept this concept and to tolerate and practice the love of one another. There lies our salvation. What type of preaching are you going to deliver to people who have been so spoiled or contaminated in sins through parental blood, that means that the old man is still dwelling in you.
1 Corinthians 5: 1-5
"It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as if not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ. To deliver such a one unto Satan for destruction of the flesh, the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus Christ.
GOD CREATED MAN AND WOMAN FOR HIMSELF ONLY
God did not create a woman for any man neither any man for any woman; He did not decreed that a man or woman should be sexually intimated to bring forth any child. Rather His divine intention was that the spirit of God should overshadow a woman to bring forth a child, so that whatever is born of that woman will be spiritual and holy and if that very purpose of God had materialized there will be no problems in the world.
On the other hand, God has created a man to live a pious life, and if a man were to live such a pious and righteous life, his spirit will eventually not be polluted, to this end and the children the man would bear will be pure and sanctified children. And that is why when you have an intimacy with a woman and what comes out as a result of that union is a replica of you, and those tendencies will show themselves in that child who is born.
There was a certain man in this town who was to be ordained a Reverend. Another black already ordained reverend opposed the idea and advised the white reverend gentleman who wanted to ordain him not to do so because his father was a renowned necromancer. He was certain of his opinion that this man, the proposed reverend, would end up as a necromancer. The white man said that such idea was superfluous and beset with a superstitious belief. The man also said that his suggestion was a primitive concept because he never realized the blood tendency problems.
The black reverend insisted that the white man would certainly regret the spiritual short-sightedness of his action because his words will come to a fulfillment. He refused to be associated with the ordination, and so he did not attend the celebration the day this man was ordained. As a matter of fact this reverend gentleman in the course of time was caught red-handed in the preparation of concoctions and charms in a hideout within the vicinity of the town and his photograph was taken without his knowledge. Secondly, the ordained reverend had a place in the ceiling of his church where he placed some fetish and other objects he believed could influence his adherents and compelled their obedience and submission. He used to go secretly to various popular necromancers for the preparation of concoctions with goats, fowls etc, and unfortunately for him in one of his several attempts, he was caught by his members who also took his photographs as a witness to show to his adherents. Whenever this unfortunate reverend gentleman mounts the altar, he would preach about charms, apparitions and witchcraft and all sorts of hideous things to frighten his members. Similarly, he would tell his members that heaven helps those who help themselves, an assertion, which lacks a biblical support. In view of the above, you will acknowledge that the reverend was misdirecting his members. He got involved in initiation into various occult and mystical societies, and finally died a pagan deeply entrenched in heathenish.
You would realize that this very reverend gentleman was invited one day by a member and some leaves were applied in his eyes, and he later discovered that all his members and adherents were wizards and witches. He then stopped it, and was able to know better.
Brethren, this story has then exposed to all of you that the cause of all the troubles and difficulties in the world emanate from the misdirection and the distortion of the Christian doctrines by the worldly orthodox churches. And all forms of religions and the blood we inherit from our parents. If it were possible for a man or woman to stay for a while without having the carnal knowledge of the opposite sex, all would have gained some level of perfection and righteousness. It is very wrong for somebody to say that another person has spoiled my child, this act is self-inflicting. The day you will be privileged to realize that blood is a very precious thing, you will refrain from indulging in vices such as having intimacy and all problems and difficulties will be a thing of the past.
The simplest thing to do therefore so that the spirit of vices in you might die out completely is to stop any further sexual intimacy with any man or woman for at least three to six months. You will be free in mind and you will be in perfect peace. You can undertake a studied experiment on this truth to prove what I am telling you if you chose to do so. Why I say that you will be different is that your forefathers were chronic sinners, indulging in drinking, snuffing, smoking, murder, idolatry, fornication and adultery. All these tendencies are in you. When a person does not have any carnal knowledge of the opposite sex, the person will not experience problems in life, no fear and no lack of self-confidence, but once the person indulges in sexual intimacy, he/she will start to have problems.
That is why many of you are so fearful now. Whereas, you had no such terrible experience before. You were never sickly before, but now you have lost the confidence you used to have in life, you have now resorted to use of charms, talismans, concoctions to protect you, but still lots and lots of evils continue to befall you. You become more prone to all these evil tendencies which have all surfaced once again. If you had the right senses, could you not understand that if you are in sexual union with any person who has all these evil tendencies and diseases such as gonorrhea, syphilis, leprosy, palsy, fits, etc, all will pass through the blood into your body.
WHY HUMANITY HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED
You will now realize that all evil tendencies with the resultant sufferings in the world arise out of the sexual intimacy between a man and a woman. Similarly, all the bad children we bring forth into the world who fight, cause confusion, and commit suicide, emanate from that very reason. It is too late and it will be an exercise in futility for you to pray that God should take this or that. If you use a white earth to mould something, how can you change it to black earth or vice versa? You could then see that these situations had become immutable. To this end, a man of God continues to be a man of God, and a man of the world continues to be a man of the world, and this situation is permanent and immutable.
"He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning, for this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil".
Brethren, have you heard that? That is why you have heard that people will come out from the waters, another plane of creation and when you see them with their beauty or handsome you will be attracted to go and be intimated with them. In the course of doing so, you will infuse and contract to yourself certain incurable diseases and spirits of vices which will be very harmful to you. And that is why St. Paul warned against these vices when he recorded in 1 Corinthians 7: 5. Paul had foreseen these things even though he wrote these things when he was fairly advanced in age. It is quite clear to us that if you have a man who is a celebrated or chronic fornicator who comes into this room, and he finds no woman to fornicate with, he will therefore not do thing with the pillars; eventually he would stay without. But if a woman comes in, he would be aroused to plead with the woman to stay with him because he has now got an opportunity. So it is with you, if you had stayed for quite a while without having any sexual union with any woman, but immediately you do it again, all the tendencies will return back to you in a greater force than before. If unfortunately you go astray to commit that kind of sin, you should fast and pray so that the actual spirit of God which had departed from you might return to you. You should then come to the realization that all the evil things you had committed come from blood, and that is why you find it difficult to understand and to practice the words of God because blood is thicker than water.
A MAN BORN OF SPIRIT HEARS AND UNDERSTANDS THE WORDS OF GOD
St. John 8: 47
"He that is of God heareth God's words, ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God".
If a man is not born of spirit, he cannot hear the words of God. For example, if Isaac had been an ordinary person born of the flesh and blood, he would have resisted his father who wanted to cut off his head as s sacrificial lamb for God. You cannot try it with your six-year old child now, and you will notice his reaction if he would not even reverse the action to sacrifice you instead. All your children are hanging about your neck and if they ask you questions, you will hardly be able to answer.
I am aware that many of you run from your houses because your children so much pester your life, but of -course, that is your blood. There is one Doctor Ikeme whose second son wanted to kill him, and in fact the situation was so tense that he had to obtain police protection and escort. Although the child died a very miserable death some few years ago, that was a very unusual and odd situation. There are many people who now own such recalcitrant children all over the world. They get their parents beaten and driven out of their houses, and that is the result of fornication and adultery which you are being advised to refrain from.
It is often said that children of prominent men are never successful in life, and I am asking you to tell Me, which prominent person who has never been a flirt or prostitute? Is there any chief, paramount ruler, a governor or president etc, who has never been a liar, fornicator, swindler, smoker or drunkard or who does not indulge in the preparation of charms, concoctions, and murder? And if they were so deeply involved in evil tendencies, how could they have good children? When a person is not good, how can he produce good children? When you argue that children of policemen and lawyers are never good or successful in life, can you tell me that these professions are good ones? Incidentally, they are cunning, and liars. Their wives are also bad, because the blood from their husbands have contaminated them and eventually, no amount of preaching can change them from their evil tendencies.
It is something shameful to see that all the African Heads of Governments are swindlers, and they also openly receive bribes. They are drunkards, smokers, snuffers, and liars. They are adulterers and fornicators who flirt about with wives and daughters of their citizens in the public. They also get involved in sharp practices in contract work, whereas if white men are given these positions, they will respect themselves and control their offices judiciously. They will control themselves from the enticing proceeds, powers and the paraphernalia of their offices.
Right now in this country, the whites are still better respected and more trusted than the Nigerians themselves because of their sharp business practices. The Nigerians also betray their fellow Nigerians in business deals. They keep on messing around so they have no self-respect for themselves quite unlike their white counterparts. Have you ever seen or heard when a white man takes another white man to court in Nigeria? But yours, both here and in the white man's country, you freely take court action against your fellow black man with abject abandon. This is caused by evil tendencies in the blood inherited from your fore-parents.
IT IS ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT CAN CHANGE A PERSON
If the Holy Spirit is not with you, it is not easy for you to refrain from fornication and adultery, smoking, drinking, anger, hatred, murder, snuffing and the rest of them because these are inherited from parents. It is expedient for a person to be a man of God and die poor as a man of God, so that your children shall be blessed, and the blood tendencies in them shall be pure and sanctified. You should make an effort and God will help you out of the doldrums of sinfulness.
1 Timothy 4: 8
"For bodily exercise profiteth little, but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life, that now is, of that which is to come".
What I am imparting to you is the recondite wisdom, which even the whites do not understand.
In a certain city, there lived a money magnet that had chains of storey buildings; estates and all sort of landed property. He was very rich by all sense of the word. He went and saw a particular lady who was a paragon of beauty, and needed her hand in marriage. She came from a royal family, when the rich business tycoon asked her for marriage, all the elders in the community advised him not marry from that family. That it was unfortunate that anybody who married from that family had to become poor and wretched and would finally meet with a disaster.
He being a self-centered person and quite perceptive of his enormous wealth thought that to be a joke, because he thought that with his tremendous bank accounts, nothing on this earth can ever render him poor. He said that if he did not marry the girl, he would commit suicide, and took no interest at all in all the pieces of advice the elders gave to him. He asked himself, shall it be that the lady shall eat too much; the elders are talking nonsense, he asserted. He said that even if the lady will be spending as much as five thousand Naira a day, his billions of Naira loaded in the banks shall never be exhausted as to make him bankrupt.
The members of this particular family neither steal or kill, but they are poor and wretched, and of course, that never bothered this young money magnet and popular business tycoon. Finally, he went and contracted all the marriage arrangements with the parents and relations of the lady and paid all the money demanded from him and took the lady home. Within a while, his storey buildings started to catch fire here and there, and less than three months after his marriage with this lady, all his known properties were in great ruins. The trouble was not that of his wife because naturally, she was sober, serviceable and well mannered. She personally was not a spend thrift and she did not eat much and so spent less on food. The history of the man's losses and ruins emanated from his pride; his wife was not instrumental to any of these unfortunate events. That is what the blood tendencies and parental heredity can do.
TEST ALL SPIRITS BEFORE MARRIAGE
That is why I am telling you that there is blood of poverty and wretchedness, there is also the blood of riches and money. When the blood of money enters any place, anything you touch will bring you money, and people will not realize from what sources the money comes to you. There is the blood of peace and tranquillity and wherever such people are found; there will be perfect calmness. The ways of the blacks are so far away from the stack realities of life's norms and values. The case of the whites are quite distinctive since they are not all that so mindful of the physical beauty, but mostly they concern themselves with the spiritual aspect of what a person is. A person must be thoroughly discerned or investigated in order to know how useful she will be in the house, her facial appearance or ugliness notwithstanding. The blacks do not believe in these spiritual investigations of person before marriages. The commonest belief is that once a person has money, it’s all right, you can get any woman to yourself. You can go to the hotels, schools, and even on the roadside and collect as many women as you possibly want, but forgetting that it is that blood which will cause confusion everywhere. If your parents are evil people, they are malicious and idolatrous; it may not be possible for you to serve God because of the blood tendencies in you. Your mother or father will also hinder you from serving God, and even if you make a good attempt to serve God, the ability shall be inhibited because of the blood you inherited from them. That is what is called the flesh and blood, it is not you doing all these things, it is that sinful blood in you which had caused you to behave in the way you are behaving. That is exactly what Paul had said as recorded in Romans 7: 15-21.
"You have to refrain from all manners of sinfulness now and live a life of contentment, and consequently your future will show every element of righteousness".
That is the blood in you, you are desirous of doing good, but the blood in you will prevent you from doing it. The problem is that the blood is fighting against the spirit and vice versa. For instance, when the gospel is being preached to you here, you become very sorry for your life and your evil doings, but as soon as you go out from here, the flesh will take dominion over you, and you degenerate back to your situation you had formerly found yourself.
CHILDREN OF FLESH AND BLOOD ARE IN OPPOSITION WITH THE CHILDREN OF THE SPIRIT
Our Lord Jesus Christ over-come the world, because He was not born out of the sexual union of Mary and Joseph. But was conceived of the power of the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit overwhelmed the blood, and that which was born had the complete attributes of God which are the truth, goodness, love, faith, peace, humility, patience and temperance. His brothers and sisters that were born after Him. Could not believe in Him, because they were born of the flesh and blood in respect of the sexual or carnal union of Joseph and Mary, and so could neither practice the words of God as preached by Our Lord Jesus Christ nor believe in God His Father. That was the reason there were some conflicts between Our Lord Jesus Christ and His brothers and sisters.
St. John 7: 3-8:
"His brethren therefore said unto Him, depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. For there is no man that doeth anything in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, show thyself to the world. For neither did his brethren believe in him, Then Jesus said unto them. My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil".
Why did His brothers and sisters not believe in Him? It was because they were carnally and that was the blood of Joseph and Mary. They waged war against Him because it was a matter of the flesh fighting against the spirit. One was of the spirit, while the others were of the flesh and blood these were incompatible. They had differences in life, and could not agree in anything, They did not understand Our Lord Jesus Christ and He also could not understand them in that Our Lord Jesus Christ was born of the spirit, they were born of the flesh and blood. This is why you all use to spend sleepless nights thinking of the carnal things more than the spiritual things. Preach what you may, you will always see any two people discussing carnal things, while the spiritual things are relegated to the background.
All carnal things are given priority attention, while the spiritual things are given little or no attention at all. If the Holy Father says that He has given promotions, houses, motor cars etc, all would shout 'AMEN' at the top of their voices because these are carnal things. Conversely if the Holy Father asks that all should refrain from all manners of sinfulness, you will not answer anything. These are indicative of the fact that you are carnal minded. But I will not fail to teach and lead you to the path of righteousness. In the same token, if the husband does not believe in God, but the wife is a great believer and does all acts of righteousness, the children born between such union are pious children because of the sanctity of the wife. Similarly, the same situation is applicable to the believing husband who has an unbelieving wife.
This is in keeping with the scriptures which says that I will visit the iniquities of the parents upon the children and upon the third and the fourth generations of them who hate me, and I will show mercy to all those who keep My commandments and love Me.
It is very easy for a believer to convert a person who has not known about God. Especially if a man of God goes to marry from the family who do not know something about God, and the moment you are intimated, the woman and whatever will come out as the result of that union, will be a pious and righteous child. You will realize that the field is wide, but the reapers are few, and we must have to take heart in order to achieve our goal. That is why whatever happens to you, could not be attributed to you, because you are desirous to practice the gospels, but the ability is not there.
Your father spoiled you. It is the blood of murder, theft, swindling, smoking, drinking, fornication and adultery which has been responsible for the state of affairs you find yourself in. It should not be construed that the spirit of God is not in you. That is the warfare which exists, the desire to do what is good, but that blood in you hinders the spirit of doing good, even as recorded in Galatians 5: 17
"For the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other, so that ye cannot do the things that ye would".
Do you now not realize that if we try as much as possible to practice the words of God, this will give your children and your children's children the impetus to practice the words of God much better than you, and eventually you will reach perfection. Have you seen sons and daughters of the rich, the well to do the kings and queens practicing the words of God? They cannot. Those who are pretending to practice the words of God are the juju-doctors, necromancers, fortune-tellers etc; they do it in their own way, the way that suits their fancies. That is why you often find that the sons of the pastors, reverend, or bishops are not doing well or are at variance with the things which pertain to God, because they are not the true children of the bishops or pastors. If they were the real children of the bishops, they would surely be successful in life. The children who are always successful in life are often the children of those who are always in the service of God in the true sense of it. Instead of your parents to die as millionaires or billionaires, kings and queens leaving large legacies for you, let them die as paupers and leave truth as a legacy for you. St. Luke 6: 20-23
"And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now, for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now; for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy, for, behold, your reward is great in heaven; for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets".
REFRAIN FROM SINS IS THE ONLY PASSPORT TO THE KINGDOM
You have to refrain from all manners of sinfulness now and live a life of contentment, and consequently your future will show every element of righteousness. Elizabeth and John had only one child who is more than thousands of children. If John the Baptist were to be the blood child of Zacharias, he would not have been able to do the work of God. Since God works in a mysterious way, whosoever works in good faith for Him, He has to reciprocate that kind gesture to Him equally. Whatever way we have chosen to obtain complete abstinence from sin, whether we are poor, whether we are leprous, whether we have children or no children, whatever may be our situation in life, we should rest assured that our future is very bright. You should ponder over the situation of Job when he openly accepted to serve God. He was stricken with abject poverty, all his children died and he himself was sickly, yet he did not deny God. He neither murmured nor blasphemed against God, and at the end, he had more prominent children, he was richer and more prosperous spiritually and otherwise than before.
You will then come to this realization that it is much more beneficial to be in the service of God. Any person who wants to serve God, must put himself head-deep into His service, not to stand haphazardly with one leg inside and the other leg outside. Then will he testify with his tongue to show that God is good and generous, once you work for God whole-heartedly, all your life; He will reciprocate this kind gesture.
Let My peace and blessings be with the entire world, now and forever more. Amen.

"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold the Tabernacle of God is with is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Rev 21:3-4)
