Some people foolishly think they can live the way they like – in sin, wickedness and rebellion – and can always pay tithes, give offering and be active in church, my brother, you can’t BRIBE GOD.

God said to the children of Israel likening them to Sodom and Gommarah in Isaiah 1:11-17

What makes you think I want all your sacrifices?”

    says the Lord.

11“I am sick of your burnt offerings of rams

    and the fat of fattened cattle.

I get no pleasure from the blood

    of bulls and lambs and goats.

Offering and big seed to pastors will not cover your unrepentant rebellion. Any pastor collecting money from you and lying to you that God will look away does not love you. God won’t look away when you make sin a lifestyle.


When you come to worship me,

    who asked you to parade through my courts with all your ceremony?

Today many churches have abandoned preaching repentance and transformation but have locked people in a craze of fake grace message that licenses their sinful lifestyle. God is watching and He is not happy. Grace should transform you not makes you a rotten sinner.


Stop bringing me your meaningless gifts;

    the incense of your offerings disgusts me!

As for your celebrations of the new moon and the Sabbath

    and your special days for fasting—

they are all sinful and false.

    I want no more of your pious meetings.

Giftsm fasting and celebrations can become disgusting to God when they are rooted in sin and falsehood.


I hate your new moon celebrations and your annual festivals.

    They are a burden to me. I cannot stand them!

It is dangerous for anyone to get to a place where God says: “I can’t stand you”, because of your rebellious sinful lifestyle.


When you lift up your hands in prayer, I will not look.

    Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen,

    for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.

Murder for robbery, assassination or abortion can make God not answer prayers except there is heart felt and genuine repentance. Nations that validate abortion and soil their land with blood of innocent children are playing with the wrath of God.


Wash yourselves and be clean!

    Get your sins out of my sight.

    Give up your evil ways.

Repentance is the way out. Stop lying to yourself that you are under grace, being under grace does not invalidate repentance from sinful lifestyle.


Learn to do good.

    Seek justice.

Help the oppressed.

    Defend the cause of orphans.

    Fight for the rights of widows.

Doing good is an evidence that you have truly encountered the grace of God. Rebelliously doing evil means you are trampling on the Grace of God.

Isaiah 1:18-20“Come now, let’s settle this,”

    says the Lord.

“Though your sins are like scarlet,

    I will make them as white as snow.

Though they are red like crimson,

    I will make them as white as wool.


If you will only obey me,

    you will have plenty to eat.


But if you turn away and refuse to listen,

    you will be devoured by the sword of your enemies.

    I, the Lord, have spoken!”

God always open his arms for us to repent and renew our minds and become better persons. Refusing to listen to God hardly ends well.

Anyone who tells you that you can misbehave because you are covered by grace is lying to you.

Repentance for salvation does not invalidate repentance from sinful ways even after you are born again.

Being born again does not give you immunity from the consequences of evil.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.
