A self-centered man is a desperate man, and the peak of desperation is greed. Greed if not curtailed will eventually murder – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is the reason and motive behind most of the fall-down-and-die prayers today in the name of Spiritual warfare – Saved to kill Christians.
Hear me and hear me well. The greatest weapon of spiritual warfare is Love. Love conquers completely.
So many a Christian today are Satan’s agent of destruction; helping him to fulfil his ministry of “…to-Kill”, while they have abandoned the glorious ministry of reconciliation because of Self and Greed. Many a brother have prayerfully murdered souls they are supposed to gain and protect in love, simply out of ruthless and self-centered pursuit, desires, and worldly gains.
Cain’s error was simple: SELF-CENTEREDNESS and GREED. He was competing rather than demonstrating Love; both to God and Men. His offering was not looked upon with favour because it was offered without the right attitude. “If you do well, won’t you be accepted? But if you don’t do well, sin is lying outside your door ready to attack. It wants to control you, but you must master it.” (Gen 4:7) But Cain’s response and action later revealed that he lacked love and compassion in his heart, “…Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” (Gen 4:9)
Invariably Cain could have killed God also if it were possible, because he was a desperate selfish man and was all after any means that could get him results. Likewise, the experiences of brethren today, growing from bad to worse, from one height of desperation to another, from sin to sin, multiplying sin upon sin; killing souls we are supposed to win and save for Christ, through the testimony of the love of God and demonstration his grace by our actions, even when we are being persecuted. Is it not true how our Christians experiences today is void of peace that stems from love and contentment? Is it not apparent that many believers today are restless and wandering from place to place, church to church, and deliverance upon deliverance?
