THE GENIUS OF ARROGANCE IS ITS ABILITY TO CAUSE BLINDNESS WITH THE EYES WIDE OPEN.
Pride and Tilapias have something in common, it’s that they both have scales. While the fish uses its scales for protection in the water pride uses its scales to hinder the sight of the proud. Arrogance arrogate honor to itself…when it’s not in honor.
Arrogance sits on a throne that lacks legs…so therefore it actually sits on the floor, among the dung of the earth and it’s dust but pride never sees it…
Pride is selective in truth…it knows the truth and accepts it only when it agrees with what it sees.
Yet visions are colored even when we refuse to agree…..colored by admiration of someone, hued by what you really want to believe, tinted by some unknown desires to be relevant, stained by the passion to be the only right person and pigmented by things I can’t even capture in this post…what you call light is probably only red in the spectrum if you know what I mean…it’s probably a blue in the spectrum…
From Einstein to Faraday, From Newton to Galileo…the beauty of physics and it’s completeness is in that which they all brought together.
From Hagin to Oral Roberts, From Katherine Kulman to Aimee McPherson, From Idahosa to Ayo Babalola….I have learnt so much and come to a realization that God is bigger than a camp. He is broader than your so called interpretation and limitations and the little box you so call correctness desiring to cramp us all in.
I saw Baba Adeboye on Instagram yesterday and I smiled all through seeing all he has done for God in a lifetime…that usually take about 4 generations to get that done.
A strong evangelistic work with a pastoral edge. Did you hear their Vision. Yeah…more evangelistic than didactic! The criticism therefore is uncalled for.
If you never see anything good with what he does for God and he is doing for God…maybe, just maybe you have something in common with Tilapias. Scales…Scales…Scales.
I have personally seen heaven, yes I have seen heaven. In my mind that is…LOL…I see there will be a lot of laughter as people who felt they were the gatekeepers of heaven and determine who got in and out and shocked…also I see those who feel they are the gatekeepers of the hallway of the revelation of God are shocked…and the doormen of the corridors of truth are shocked as we do away with our part interpretation and part knowledge and stand before HIM who is Holy and Perfect.
But while we are here, focus on your assignment, do it well, don’t pay an ounce of attention to those whose job is to police you on your own lane. And as you go by, nod to a fellow soldier and give a pat of encouragement and show with all kindness the right way when you must.
I hope it’s simple enough.
