ODM April 2019 Day 19 : GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION

ODM April 2019 Day 19

TOPIC: GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION by Bishop Dr Chris Kwakpovwe 

BASIC SCRIPTURE: 2 TIMOTHY 1:6-14

I got Born Again on Tuesday, February 3rd 1976 at about 9.30pm! In those days, churches were few in my country and the believers were fewer but we were bonded in uncommon love! It was a time we served the LORD without a care for ANYTHING! Nobody taught us that miracles existed and we did not care! We were just seeking the LORD and not miracles! Those were days when: Preachers preached because they had a message and not because they wanted money; they were days when Christians rejoiced because they had the VICTORY! Preachers preached from the Bible and not just motivational teachings to excite humanism/itching ears, those were days when church choirs sang from the heart and not for entertainment; sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED! They were days when a new birth meant a new life, Salvation meant a changed life, Following Christ led to eternal life.

But Today, we have turned churches to I theatres, altars to stages of shows, I the Gospel to secular motivation of “sales men.” Today, we have turned Faith to management! Ah! In those days of the OLD TIME RELIGION, being a preacher meant you proclaimed the Word of God, being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord without eye service, being a Christian then, meant you would live for Jesus; and being a sinner meant someone was praying for you! Ah! They were days when Laws were based on the Bible, Homes read the Bible, And churches taught the Bible. I remember! Those were days when preachers were more interested in new converts than new clothes, new cars or new offering bags. In those days, church was where you found Christians on the Lord’s day, rather than in the park, on the golf course, cinemas or being entertained somewhere else.

Today’s scripture Vs. 13 says: “Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me… Paul was saying: HOLD SOUND WORDS TIGHT because they are so easy to lose and so easy to DILUTE! Indeed, as I see the degeneration of this end-time church and preachers with churches without power on every street, I cry out daily: LORD, GIVE ME THAT OLD TIME RELIGION AGAIN! It was good enough form! I am tired of the new Gospel! I am tired of hypocrisy! I am tired of betrayals! I want the old! I want it badly! I want it now! ODM April 2019 Day 19

There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus –  Hymn

1) There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
No, not one! no, not one!
None else could heal all our souls’ diseases:
No, not one! no, not one!

Jesus knows all about our struggles;
He will guide ’til the day is done:
There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
No, not one! no, not one!

2. No friend like Him is so high and holy,
No, not one! no, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly,
No, not one! no, not one!

3. There’s not an hour that He is not near us,
No, not one! no, not one!
No night so dark, but His love can cheer us,
No, not one! no, not one!

4. Did ever saint find this Friend forsake him?
No, not one! no, not one!
Or sinner find that He would not take him?
No, not one! no, not one!

5 . Was e’er a gift like the Savior given?
No, not one! no, not one!
Will He refuse us the bliss of heaven?
No, not one! no, not one!
