OUT OF THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

🔊 Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1178


Gen 4:16-17 [NKJV]
16. Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. 17 And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son — Enoch.


Pious was twelve when he accepted Christ. Even at this age, he enjoyed fellowship with God so much that his life was led by the Spirit.
When he got to the university, he made friends who don’t care about God. He gradually lost his consecration and eventually fell to peer pressure. Even at this, things went well for him. And when brethren visited and advised him to return to God, he’ll simply mutter “what do I need God for? I am just okay”.

Pious eventually became so hardened that he was made the leader of a cult group on campus. He became very famous and got whatever he wanted on campus. He died in a shoot-out between two cult groups after his graduation.

Many have backslidden; done all kinds of evil to get money and are now very rich. Just like Cain, who left the presence of God and built himself a city, many have left the presence of God and yet grew very famous, wealthy and renowned. But their end is destruction (see Ps 73:16-18). The end of the godly is peace (see Ps 37:39). Note that the end of a man is not physical death.

Go into today knowing that true prosperity cannot be gotten outside God’s presence. Ask the Lord to show you the path of life. For in God’s presence is fullness of joy and at his right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:11
-Dr. James Emmanuel
