In the book of history that I believe so much, some leaders led and did so much evil that they made others to do evil as well. These were influential people; and through their lifestyles or laws did make people to sin against their bodies and ultimately against God. Is this model not replicating itself in my generation today? I see my leaders do things that make youths to be determined to be corrupt. People now find genuine excuse to do evil because of the hardship in the land as a result of these leaders’ decision. My leaders are making my people to commit sins against their bodies and ultimately against God.
Oh! Can these leaders forsake their evil ways? Yes, they can. But will they listen to the call of repentance to turn away from the ways of sin? I remain hopeful because Apostle Paul said that his bonds in Christ manifest in all the palaces and in other places as he was able to change people of caeser’s household.
I believe I am a restorer of a true conversion in my generation and those to come after. I begin by consciously doing what is right in the sight of God. I will draw out my soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul. They that shall be of me shall build the old waste places, I will raise up the foundation of many generations. I shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in.
I have great confidence in God that told me to stand in the ways to see, and ask of the old paths; where is the good way, for me to walk therein and I shall find rest for my soul. Alas! Not only me but all that will enter a covenant to seek the lord God of our fathers with all our hearts and our souls.
Take up courage with me, let’s put away the abominable idols out of our hearts and lands, let us renew the alter of the lord, let us earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. And we know that our work shall be rewarded in Jesus name, Amen. Then shall others see and shall ask the way to Zion with the faces thither ward saying “come let us join ourselves to the lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
