Open Heaven, Friday 12 August 2022 Daily Devotional Message
The Church in Pergamos was standing firm. They did not deny the faith even with so much decadence around them. The only thing God had against them however is that they accommodated sinners in their midst without cautioning them that they were doing the wrong thing. It is not enough to live holy; you must also be concerned about the holiness of the entire Church.
You must not be slow to call to correction those who are doing it wrong within the body of Christ. I am not saying that you should confront anyone, but make it clear to everyone that there is the fake and the original. (RCCG Open Heaven 12 August 2022)
State the attributes of the fake and those of the original. You don’t have to mention names, the people will know who and who you are talking about. It will be clear that you are not in support of their actions.
But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. – (1 Corinthians 5:11)
In many Churches today, the line between the Church and the world is blurry. During praise and worship, they are singing songs and drumming just like the people of the world. Members of the congregation are dancing the latest dance steps in the world. You see ladies exposing their bodies and wearing very tight clothes.

Choristers make their faces up so much that when you see them coming, you know they pay more attention to adorning the flesh than the spirit (1 Peter 3:3-4). The Bible says, “Be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17). If light is beginning to look like darkness, then you can be sure it is no longer light but darkness.
We now have amongst us also, people who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans saying, “As long as you have given your life to Christ, then you can go ahead and commit sin; grace will cover you”.
Now, because some of these people are big men of God, the other Pastors who know the truth are too afraid to speak up. Don’t keep quiet! Speak up and tell whoever will listen to you that Nicolaitan doctrine is of the devil and Jesus hates it (Revelation 2:15).
In Revelation 2:15 & 16 Jesus said He is coming to fight those who follow wrong doctrines within the Church. Check carefully; are you one of them?
