GIVING MONEY TO THE POOR AND BEGGARS CANNOT BUY YOU A PLACE IN HEAVEN
— Pastor W.F Kumuyi Says
Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry spoke to his members at a recent Bible Study Program titled, “The State And Status Of The Sons Of God.” He read from Romans 8:24 which says, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” He said that when Christ was here, He did everything by the power of God, and that was why He succeeded. Because we are joint-heirs with Him, He has made this power available for us so that we also might succeed.
In one of his sub-topics, he talked about “The Perversion Of Backsliders, Hopeless Without Grace.” He said that it is one thing to know God, and it is another thing for God to know us. The Galatians were confused by traditional religious people who turned their eyes away from the truth of the gospel. He then told them that if they were in another religion before who taught that when you give alms to the poor, you buy mansions for yourself in heaven, now that the light of the gospel has shone on you, you must do away with all those old beliefs and embrace the pure teachings of the word of God. Your fasting and prayer cannot buy a place for you in heaven.
He said that when you wrong Madam A, giving alms or gifts to Madam B will not atone for you. You have to go to the person you wronged and apologize to him or her. You must not continue to have anything to do with the law, circumcision and the rest of it, you only come to and stay with Christ. You will not draw back to perdition in Jesus’ name.
Finally, he said that to get to heaven, the just shall live by faith. No one will draw back because you are adopted. Abide in the love of God which was so much even when you were still a sinner and how much more after you have identified with Him.
