BEWARE OF THIS CELEBRATION CALLED VALENTINE( PART 2)
Text: Mark 4:19, John 3:16.
By God's grace, this series started yesterday, here comes the second segment. The
This message is to warn all Christians and heavenly bound citizens to stay off from Valentine, because anything that is not biblical cannot be practiced in Christendom.
Valentine is for the people of the world, remember we are in the world but not of the world and as such, we as Christians must not follow the ways of the world rather we should follow after the Precepts of Christ - Christ should be our role model.
Bible forewarned us in 1 John 2:15, that if any man love the world that the true love of Christ is not in him."
And to be friend of this world is to be in enmity with God. James 4:4.
THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END AND IF ANY MAN LOVE THE WORLD THAT IS TO SAY THAT SUCH PERSON WILL END UP THE SAME WAY THE WORLD WILL END.
For many years, some bible scholars, preachers, religious leaders and many churches have been debating whether to accept the celebration of valentine or not. Many things have been said about the origin and the foundation of valentine, some said it's a special day set aside for lovers, while others argued that it was a day a man known as ST VALENTINO gave free gift to all his workers while some said it's a day dedicated to remember a particular god.
It may be true or not but the question now is...what are the outcome of this valentine celebration? What has been to results of the valentine celebration? Of what benefit has it become to the lives of our youths ?
Remember, many people has pierced themselves with many sorrow all in the name of celebrating valentine. Many future has been mortgaged as a result of this celebration called valentine.
Many homes/families have been broken as a result of valentine.
The devil has never stop devising means to destroy many people's life and valentine is another strategic means Satan has been using for ages to destroy many souls and this week (14 February being Sunday), he has mapped out plans to fetch more souls to hell fire. Will you fall to His prey?
No matter the angle you look at it, it doesn't worth celebrating.
The consequences of valentine is so damning and as such, we must not join the world in this 'WORLD IMMORAL DAY'!
You see many people are dying to see 14th of February (Val day).
The day of fake love and deceit, The day of one night stand, A day which after-effect comes with heartbreak, diseases (HIV/AIDS,/STDs), unwanted pregnancies, broken marriages/divorce, etc.
Many virgins will equally lost what they have so guarded for years likewise many young men.
Some men has already bought fake engagement rings all in the name of celebrating valentine in order to continue with their sin partner. Many family men has planned fake executive/board meetings abroad just to make sure they celebrate this valentine with their mistress.
Do you also know that, many will shop lift just to make sure they satisfy their girl friends. Time and space will not permit me to go further but its unfortunate many will not read this message and many will read but will not heed to it. So sad, please dear reader be warned to avoid crying had I know at the end.
In yesterday part 1 of this topic this was a response received from one of my READERS;
"The truth is that nobody is enjoying this valentine though many people pretend to be enjoying it.
It's a period when youths allow unnecessary stress to creep into their life. Matured minds have nothing to do with valentine. Must I wait for valentine day to show love to my wife ?
What if I don't have money by that time? Okay now that I'm away from my family, and Valentine day is just a few days to go, what do you think will happen if I've been waiting for Valentine's day to prove my love to her.
People trying to inculcate Valentine's day into the church programs are only doing so for the sake of unbelievers in the church. So if you're a matured Christian, you've no business with valentine day, no matter your class, age or gender. Valentine is full of stress and has nothing good to offer. Ka Chineke mezie okwu."
MAY GOD HELP US AND MAKE US THE DOERS OF HIS WORD.
Dear Lord, bless all my friends and families reading this, open their spiritual eyes to understand that vanity is vanity, never allow them to fall a victim of this Valentine's lust rather show them your incomparable love and grace in Jesus name I pray, Amen!
JOIN ME TOMORROW MORNING FOR THE CONCLUDING PART 3.
REMAIN RAPTURABLE FOR JESUS !
Kindly share to bless others especially, our youths.
