Title:The Third Vail Preventing People From Seeing God: Religions’ Founders


This week,as the Lord had given us the grace,we are discussing the third vail that prevents people from seeing their Creator,God:FOUNDERS OF RELIGION.
The Founder of a religion, in some cases,speak on behalf of God. Some of them were raised and used by Some even told and taught the truth.They lived to please their Creator.On the other hand,some of them were spoken to,raised and used by opposing forces working against the pleasure of God.They worship Creatures.
About the followers of those that were raised by the Creator of the universe,many do believe the Messenger, not his message and He that sent him.Let me raise three reasons for this:
One,they may be interested only in the ability and capability of the man who was sent;the acts of God in or through him.Psalm 103:7 reads,
“He made known His ways to Moses,
His acts to the children of Israel.”New King James Version(NKJV).
These people of God,like many others today,believed and still believe in whom God is using who happens to be the founders of their religions.
They enjoy and rest only the miracles and wonders the Lord is doing in their lives.This is dangerous.Psalm 106:7,13 read,
“Our ancestors in Egypt were not impressed by the Lord’s miraculous deeds
They soon forgot his many acts of kindness to them.
Yet how quickly they forgot what he had done!
They wouldn’t wait for his counsel!” New Living Translation(NLT)
Two,the followers,sometimes,do not understand fully,if at all, the teaching of their Religious Leader,and many do not want to know.Their declaration is always”You(leader),speak to God and tell us,what He(God) commands us,we will do”.Deut 5:27.
They never bother that God speak to them.Whereas,the will of every God-sent servant is that every one(followers especially) must have a direct relationship with God.They must all yearn to see His face.
Three,the people find it greatly difficult to follow God’s commands and see no reason they must attempt to see His face.They now prefer their nominal attachment to the Religions and its founders.So,the Founders stand between God and these people.These kind of people seize every opportunity to ignite fire of commotion when anyone tries to show the way to see God.They glory in this only.They are zealous for the Founder of Religion.We read about a group of people in Acts 21:20-21,
“And when they heard it,they glorified the Lord.
And they said to him,”You see,brother,how many myriads of Jews there are who have believed,and they are all zealous for the law;but they have been informed about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses(their Religion’s Founder),saying that they ought not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the custom.” (NKJV)
This group of people are busy defending Moses and the commandments handed over to them by God,although they did (and still do not) not understand the man of God and his teachings.
They allowed the person of Moses to obscure their vision of God.As it was,so it is today.
About the other religious leaders of the opposite group to that of God,they know who they have believed and where they are going at the end of this life:hell! These Founders do not know their Creator and will not allow their followers to.They were believed by their followers who do not bother to know their Creator.
It must be restated here that Jesus Christ did not come into the world to begin or set up a religion.The same was true of Moses. The purpose of their coming into the world is freedom,call it salvation.Matthew 1:21 records this about Jesus Christ,”And she (Mary) will bring forth a Son,and you shall call His name Jesus,for He will save His people from their sins.”
His disciples were first called Christians in Antioch,(Acts 11:26)
I bring this to an end with “May God reveal Himself to all those whose eyes are covered with the vail of a Religious Founder.”
Meet you with joy next week to discuss the fourth vail in Jesus’ name.
