Everything God created was on the platform or vehicle of words. Man was not left out from creation. Everything God created was out of spoken word. Permit me to say that for man to also enter his created future it will still be on the vehicle of words. Friend seven visions that are given to us most times are written down! Habakkuk 2 verse 2 says,‘Write the vision and make it plain on tables so that he that readeth may run with it’.
There is a place to read those words in order to speak them!
It may interest you to know that the life we live today is faced with the battle of words. Even God! Numbers 23 verse 19 says, God is not a man that he should lie neither the son of man that he should repent, has he not said it, and shall he not do it has he not spoken it and shall he not make it good’.
If God must transform a man it is from the spoken words The spoken word!
So our existence is on the platform of the spoken word! Now we know that all these came to life by this force!
WHAT IS WORD
Word is define as an order or command or a combination of sounds
that has a meaning and is spoken or written. Friends for you to get the abundance of the spoken word you must be buoyant and be a custodian of the written word.
The bankruptcy of the written word is the incapacitated state of a man to receive abundance of the spoken word. That is to say you can’t hear God audibly daily if you don’t hear him from his written word (The Bible). We live in a generation where we want to hear God audibly and we deny hearing from him in his written word! If you can read him desperately and daily friends you will hear him daily and audibly.
Words as an order or command are on the vehicle of instructions! Spoken and written words come on the vehicle of instructions, The first proof that you are a follower as a believer is that you are instructed. Absence of instructions in a life of a believer causes malnutrition in that believer.
Now please let’s examine this, From the day your mum gave birth to you till now you will agree with me that she has been talking with you right?That is to say your build up was on the premise of instructions. And not to follow or adhere sometimes to these instructions is to be identified that you are character deficient. Every believer’s life is characterized and built by instructions!Not to be instructed is to soon get destructed as a follower.
WHAT IS TOTAL OBEDIENCE
Total Obedience is an absolute agreement and compliance with an order or command to an authority. Now take note of the definition.
3.Order or command.
If you must totally obey sometimes you must either partially or fully agree to what you want to obey. After partial or full agreement then compliance is effected. Most times all obedience is to an authority! Can I submit to us that as a believer our full duty is Total Obedience.
As seen in Ecclesiastes 12 verse 13, the conclusion of the matter is to fear God and keep his commandments forth is is the whole duty of a man. In the life of a believer there is no such thing as partial obedience. Partial obedience is equivalent to disobedience. I will like to establish some authorities to which Scripture shows us to obey.
Scriptures to consider, Matthew 16 verse 24, John 14 verse 15 and 23, Ephesians 6 verse 1, Colossian 3 verse 18, 1peter 3 verse 7, Philippians 2 verse 8.
From Matthew and John we see that the first authority is to Jesus! The proof that you love God is that you are totally obedient to him. Remember Christ loved us while we were yet sinners. The only return is to follow him as he makes your life. Total obedience is your response to his love for you. As children we are admonished to be totally obedient to our parents in alignment with the will of God for it is right.
Wives are also to be obedient to the husbands as it is to the Lord, A pastor was asked by a woman whose husband doesn’t allow her to go for vigils and that she wanted to disobey the husband and be attending. The pastor laughed and said Colossians 3 verse 18. The woman didn’t understand! ‘Until he releases you, you can’t go’, he told her. That’s why it is profitable to marry the will of God (husband) so as to be totally obedient to Him.
Husbands are not left out on obedience ‘oh’. A woman can close the heaven of the husband! You know how? If she is not happy your prayers can be hindered. Hindered prayers most times are as a result of close heavens.
As I round off about the concept of total obedience.
Our master Jesus is a perfect example of a man that total obeyed God!He was obedient unto death! As we progress the teaching we will get to learn about this.
On a final note, Every believer that must gain mastery in the things that pertain to this kingdom must sentence his or herself to a life of Total Obedience. Be blessed everyone! God bless you all.
