Text: Mal 1:1 – The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.

Zechariah 9:1 The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.

You may call it Evangelism, you can call it the good news gospel if you like, whatever name you ascribe to it, it is surely the Word of God.

Right from the beginning, God had always intended to share His Word with man.

Before the fall of man, God would come in the cool of the day to commune and share His Word with man.

After the fall of man, the Word of the Lord would still not leave man alone. The same Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us; as men, we beheld the glory of the Word as of the only begotten Son of the Most-High God.

There is never a time the Word of God is not available to man.

With the ascension of Jesus Christ, the Word of God, the Almighty Father would still make His Word available to man through the help of the Holy Spirit, inspiring men to write and Chronicle the mysteries inherent in the Word of God which today is known as the Holy Bible.

And for all the prerogative mercy and grace made available by Divinity to make this infallible Word available to humanity, man has consistently treated the truth of God’s Word with kid gloves.

There are indeed very few amongst us who recognize, appreciate, esteem and respect the truth of God’s Word.

Listen to me my Friends, the Word of God is real food. It is the only known food that can sustain the soul of man from eternal destruction.

Quite unfortunately however, very few have the burden, the thirst and hunger for this great menu.

For some, the word of God is one of the most boring things to encounter. For yet others, it is just not interesting.

But we know that the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword; we know that the Word of God has trans-formative capacities of turning a sinner to saint, the wicked to righteous, the foolish man to a custodian of sound wisdom.

Our world is in a dark and chaotic state today because we have a lot of people who are malnourished when it comes to the Word of God.

So many want to hear the Words of Obama, but very few want to listen to the words of Jehovah!

In my life time, I have seen people analyze and meditate on the reports and speeches of great presidents with seriousness and deliberateness. In my life time, I have also seen so many treat the living Word with disdain, contempt and unworthiness.

Think about it. Every Sunday and perhaps every weekly service day, you see countless number of bibles left behind and forgotten in Church.

The owners don’t even remember they have left the Sword of the Spirit behind until another service day. The same people who forgot their bibles will not stay an hour before returning back to church if they left their mobile phones behind.

It is only in our generation that mobile phones carry more weight in the hearts of men than the word of God.

What a shame. What a great Tragedy.

Just like in the days of Noah, Enoch, Malachi, Zechariah, Jesus Christ, etc. the Word of God is still fresh and powerful and shall answer to those that crave for it.

You are under the oppression of witches and wizards today because of the scarcity of Word of God in your heart.

The enemy is having fun molesting the destinies of many because the lack the burden to crave for the perfect law of liberty.

Listen, no one fears the Word of God more the Satan and its demons.

We must therefore develop an infinite capacity and an insatiable burden to listen and obey the Word of God.

The Word of God is not really what your pastor tells you, it is what the Holy Spirit teaches and reveals to you.

You will therefore require the Author of the Word, to make available the revelation and mysteries in the Word.

The one who gives you this burden is the Holy Spirit Himself.

You must however come to terms with the Ultimate sacrifice done by Jesus Christ. The Word of God is not like any other literature that you read like novels and articles, it is the mind of God. Come to Jesus today and receive an insatiable burden for the Word. And till I come your way again, I want you to be a reflector of His divine image, a carrier of His power and an ambassador of the of the righteousness of Christ in this sinful world. Remain blessed and bye for now.
