The two sons.
Facts about the younger son (5)
Some weeks ago, we began this series with the focus of exploring maximally and sufficiently the relevant truths and mystery of the two sons but we began with the prodigal son.
We were able to see about four things he did wrong like;
# Leaving his father's house (Presence)
# Being in a hurry to travel out and manifest.
# Went to a FAR Country.
# Spent all His possession on self without sowing.
Today, we are looking at the fifth thing he did which is called Wrong association because Bible says he went and joined himself to a citizen of that FAR Country.
Far means far. For the country to be called far, it means their system, operations, covenant, practices and possibly their gods were different from what he had earlier grown up to meet in his father's house.
Each time you loss value or respect, if you can check well, you will see that you associated with a far country citizen.
As soon as he joined himself to that citizen, the next thing he did was to send him to his Pigs.....God forbid.
How can a palace personality be sent to pigs?
But this was because he went far to where his worth, potential and relevance wasn't recognized..... A far country.
(Mathew 7:6) Explains that nothing precious should be given to pigs, But this citizen sent this Son to pigs where he could never gain anything of value.
# Pigs enjoy corruption (Sin)
# Pigs are not really advisable for consumption more because of excess fat (Less impact or relevance).
# Pigs are never sensitive.
# Pigs forbid being neat etc
Yet he sent this son to Go to pigs because he was a strange citizen in a far country.
Have you lost favour today?
Have you been demoted in life?
Have you noticed that you are a complete shadow of your successful self in the past?
The answer is simple.... You have joined your self to a citizen, a friend, a system in a far country.
You don't need to waste further time or think you need deliverance... NO! All you need is to think twice like this prodigal son did and return back.
On your journey to success, U-Turn is always necessary if you have discovered you are on a wrong track.
Citizens of far country are out for two reasons;
# To make you comfortable with sin (Pig life)
# To strip you off from your Dignity.
In the name of Jesus, you are divorced from far countries citizens!!!
COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE YE SEPERATE.
