It is very sad when the Word of God is being rejected due to the fact that the vessel in the physical realm in which the LORD uses is female. Selah.
If you have problems reading the bible and spiritual books that focus on Christ Jesus or even watching spiritual movies that focus on Christ Jesus, then, you too, need to submit your life to God and get delivered from this demonic stronghold that might be lurking or exist unsuspectedly in your soul. Christ Jesus is waiting to save and set you free. Selah.
God is so Good, I just saw this warning written in Watchman Nee's book, "The Spiritual Man". This is exactly what I had experienced many many years ago. You do not have to wait so long as I did to understand the truths written in this book.
Readers: You should ASK God to keep Satan from preventing you reading it. Pray as you read; turn what you read into prayer. Pray that God will cover you with the helmet of salvation lest you forget what you read or simply fill your mind with innumerable theories. If God has graciously liberated you from the flesh and the power of darkness, you, in turn, ought to bring these truths to others. So after you have digested the book thoroughly and the truths have become your own, will you gather a few saints together and teach them the truths. If it is too much to use the entire book, then one or two parts would be profitable. The hope is that the truths herein will not be left unnoticed. Even lending the book to others to read would be a profitable thing.
My husband and I once met a native African pastor who spent most of his time helping the poor in his communities. We believed that his intentions were pure at heart so we began to help him. Later in our relationship, he became offended at the way we did things and ended the relationship. We also found out the true intention of his heart in helping the poor in his communities. Whenever he travelled to America, he would tell sad stories and share sad photos regarding the poor in his country in order to gain financial assistance. To ease his conscious, he would spend a tiny amount of money to help the poor in his communities, but the bulk of the money was used to educate his children and help his own family. Christ Jesus knew that the intentions of his heart was selfishness and greed. The sad part to this story is he did not live to see his children grown. He later died of cancer.
When we do the work of the LORD, we need to search our hearts and make sure our intentions are pure and holy in the sight of God, not mankind; for we will truly reap what we have sown. Selah.
Note: This post is not intended to discourage a person from doing good, only to think about the intent of our heart when doing good. The good works may look good in the sight of mankind, but if the intent and purpose of the heart is wrong, then God is not pleased.
