Obedience is the true test of our love for Christ and the secret to discovering God’s will for our life. The question is What specific area of weakness in your life do you need to bring into obedience to Christ?

Matthew 3:7-8. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Beloved, God the Father teaches saints of all ages on the importance of saintliness He commanded that His people must be saintly and live by saintly principles. He emphasised He called His people to be saints.

Romans 1:7. To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:2. Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

The saints of old were compelled by God to correct  their past ungodly and unsaintly deeds.

Ecclesiastes 3:15  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

Jeremiah 7:5 -7. For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.
Jeremiah 26:13: Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORDyour God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.

No wonder when John the Baptist began his ministry, he re-emphasised the importance  of correcting every wrong deeds done to others in the past as a proof of turning to God fully.

Matthew 3:7-8. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Paul apostle by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit taught same, that believers after true conversion must correct every wrong deeds of the past.

Acts 26:20. But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

Beloved see areas where God compelled saints if old to amend and correct wrong deeds of the past.
1. Marriage:

Genesis 20:6-7. And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

Genesis 20:14. And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.

2. Stolen things:

Exodus 22:1-4. If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.  If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him. If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft. If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

3. Lying and deception:

Leviticus 6:1-5. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour; Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found, Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

4. Restitutions to the Lord, if you can not locate the person defrauded. Inability of not locating the defrauded person is not an excuse,  the fraud committed must be paid to the Lord. Drop it in the offering of the church.

Numbers 5:5-8. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the Lord, and that person be guilty; Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed. But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the Lord, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.

5. Paying back debts and stollen things.

Ezekiel 33:14-16. Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right; If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

Beloved, God said any  past wrong deeds not  corrected will earn the person death, that is eternal separation from God for all eternity. Please endeavour to correct every fraudulent acts of the past, before you meet  the Lord, if you really wants to be part of the rapture or live with Him after death.

Genesis 20:7.  Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine..

Revelation 20:14. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Dearly beloved, Jesus taught believers of all ages to know that, before salvation can be genuine, biblical and acceptable, restitutions of wrong deeds in the time past is compulsory.

Luke 19:5-9. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Jesus taught believers not to give any offering without correcting wrong deeds of the past.

Matthew 5:23-24. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Jesus before ascension compelled His faithful ministers to teach His church of all ages, restitutions and biblical principles that  must  validate their profession of faith.

Matthew 28:20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Paul taught restitutions and did restitution himself. See it.

Acts 24:16. And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

See his restitution.

Acts 23:1-5. And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth. Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law? And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God’s high priest? Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.

These are some of the biblical principles, Jesus commanded His church to be taught.
1. No dishonesty 

2 Corinthians 4:2: But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

No Fraudulent practices 

2 Corinthians 7:2: Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.

2. Honesty and integrity 

Romans 12:17. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

Proverbs 11:3. The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

Proverbs 20:7. The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

3. Justness and unblameness.

1 Thessalonians 2:10: Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

4. Sincerity and no uncorruptness

Titus 2:7: In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

5. No  Bribery

Job 15:34 For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

1 Samuel 12:3. Behold, here I am: witness against me before the Lord, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.

Isaiah 33:15. He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

Dearly beloved, believers that shall partake of the dawning rapture or see Jesus at the end of time must be obedient to these teachings according to Jesus Christ our Lord.

John 12:46-48. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

JESUS TEACHINGS ON BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES TO BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR. BE OBEDIENT.
 Friend, I praised God for you that you are sincerely awakening to the reality of this time.  No doubt we are in perilous time and the entire world inside and outside the church are characterised by ungodliness without impunity.

2 Timothy 3:1-5. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

It is very very sad and unfortunate that good conscience is no more a norm both in the church and the ungodly society globally.

Acts 23:1: And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.

Acts 24:16. And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

What obtains now and is the acceptable cankerworm are defiled conscience and shameful ungodly deeds. Very unfortunately perpetrators of these vices claimed to be expecting the Lord. Such people shall be abysmally disappointed. Pause here and don’t be presumptuous.
Are you also caught in these webs? Your response should be affirmative no. But if in case it is yes. This is the time to repent.

Titus 1:15: Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Revelation 2:5. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

See what should characterise your lifestyle as you are preparing for the Lord. His grace shall be sufficient for you as you commit yourself to doing these till He comes in Jesus name.

Titus 2:11-13. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Hebrews 9:14: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Hebrews 10:22: Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

1 Peter 3:16: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
