Scripture reference: John 16:1-8

What does it mean to stumble?

The only way for you to dissect scripture is by scripture.

You may use your understanding to dissect scripture and it sounds right but you must know that scripture was not written by understanding but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he SAID to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

Jesus meant that: I must tell you such that whoever comes after me and tells you anything contrary, do not allow yourself to stumble by accepting it.

Stumbling means having another doctrine. You can remain with a form of godliness; praying, fasting, giving but denying the authority. 

The prostitution of scriptures began a long time ago and it was not by man but by the serpent (Genesis 3:1) when he took on another form and manipulated what God had said to man.

No man is exempted from stumbling; when you become a man of God, you are in fact more prone. Depending on how much of God is on you is how much of Satan’s eye will be looking at you.

No one wants to stumble but they are just made to stumble. Satan uses words to affect a man. 

Liars, murderers, prostitutes, etc. have entered the church and are standing on pulpits and because we are ignorant of WHAT GOD SAID, we cannot tell.

Of all you have heard about God, the dimensions of the move of the Spirit you have seen, and what you have read about the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of faith, IS THIS ALL!!!?

Can’t we manifest more? Who is responsible for the prostitution of Africa?

Unless we return to the original words that Jesus said, the serpent will continue speaking to us: You are human, and whether you like it or not a spirit (either God or serpent) will speak to you. (John 8:11)

The presence of stumbling is a sign that there is a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6)

We must cling to the Truth (what Jesus said) and leave what is true (what has been said by men).

The only way to fight knowledge is through knowledge. Satan is advancing in knowledge but the unfortunate part of it is that the African churches are not.

As children of God, we do not only need miracles but also more training. We need to go after knowledge: Mentorship will save you from many years of struggling.

Daniel 11:32 … but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out [great exploits.]

Our knowledge of God is what gives us the confidence and stamina not to stumble.

Cry to the Lord to expose to you anything that is hidden by darkness within you such that you may know the truth that you should walk in.
