Dear Bros in Christ

,
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Brothers in Christ, this monthly devotional is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him. Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.

IRON MAN OIKODOME BOX TOP 057 "If one carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and with the edge he touches bread or stew, wine or oil, or any food, will it become holy?" ‘“Then the priests answered and said, "No.” 13And Haggai said, "If [one who is] unclean [because] of a dead body touches any of these, will it be unclean?" So the priests answered and said, "It shall be unclean.” 14Then Haggai answered and said, " 'So is this people, and so is this nation before Me,' says the LORD, 'and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean. (HAGGAI 2:12-14NKJV),” “DISOBEDIENCE” Bros something cannot become holy by allowing it to touch the holy things of God. Just as something unclean whatever it touches will also be made unclean… So if we have sin in our lives and serve the Lord and do works for Him, all of our works are unclean. God made it clear that all that they did, every work as a nation was unclean and what they offered to God was unclean because of their sin. If we carry on in sin and try to serve the Lord then all that we do is in vain because sin pollutes the holy things of God. A little leaven leavens the whole loaf… You cannot mix the things of God with the unclean things and sins of the world; it corrupts every work- the whole lot… “A little leaven leavens the whole lump (GALATIANS 5:9 NKJV)”. Sin has the stench of death on it and sin does lead to death and touching a dead body was equated to being unclean and being in sin is equated with being spiritually dead… And separated from God… “because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy (1Peter 1:16 NKJV)." Bros let us all be in pursuit of holiness chasing after Jesus everyday, with everyway. Leaving far behind that stench of death- those sins that lead to death and make us unclean and all that we do that is unclean; unholy before our Holy God. Those sins that touch our ministry destroy every work, the ministry we are called to do before the Lord, the things we offer to the Lord. Abide in the things of the Lord to stay far away from the things of death, the sins of the flesh and of the world. Thank You Lord that we can be made clean by You when we are obedient to You and confess those sins and repent and turn fully back to You-amen! Agape,
