A Life Changing Message: What Kind Of Men Does The World Need Today? By Joseph Edem Bassey

A Life Changing Message


 Hi beloved readers, I'm excited to share with you, a message from the word of the Lord. Before I continue, it is worth noting that the world has turned a bubbling red and extremely dangerous for human lives.


 The scripture says in Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."


What Is Fate Of The World Right Now?

 Many people may be wondering what will become of the world in years to come. How about now?

 The evil and deceit which descended the Earth has caused high rates and levels of blindness in the eyes and minds of many living beings. The world has become a dark Forest where many souls have been captivated, manipulated and rendered useless to their Creator.


 Many people in the world are into a lot of sinful activities which they cannot control themselves against. Many have become professional killers, thieves, perpetual liers, sexual abusers, home breakers, punctual trouble makers to mention but a few. It is necessary to know that these are not from the nature of creation, rather, they are products of the imputed nature of Satan; the nature of SIN.

 The first Adam in the Bible, turned off the main aim of the making of man by submitting to the leadership of the devil in Genesis chapter 3. Abba Father was very unhappy about such incident, but by love, He made a way for man to take his right position on Earth by sending the last Adam, Jesus Christ, "Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God, our Father." (Galatians 1:4)


 In today's life changing message, we are looking at, What Type Of Men Does The World Need Today?

 Let us briefly look into the conversation between Jesus Christ and the man called Nicodemus.


 St. John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

St. John 3:2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

St. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

St. John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

St. John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

St. John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

St. John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

St. John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

St. John 3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

St. John 3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

St. John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

St. John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?"


 The man called Nicodemus, had a good time conversing with Jesus Christ but was full of doubts. He was in the dark, though right before the Light of the world. (Jesus Christ). He desired to know the truth, but found it difficult to believe when he was told.

 From the story, you should be able to pick out certain qualities that are found wanting in the lives of men in the world today. The tricks are true, but Truth prevails.


Below are the qualities and calibers of men the world needs today. Though the world rarely recognizes them, due to the deceit from the devil, it is worth having the knowledge of them.


Disclaimer: The word 'men' refers to both male and female (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, this message is directed to both genders and without any form of discriminations.


What Kind Of Men Does The World Need Today?

#1. The world needs men that know God:

 Jeremiah 9:6 says, "Thine  habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD."


 >The world needs men who know their Maker (God): No one can do exploit in a world filled with evil save for those who know their God (Daniel 11:32). The knowledge of God keeps the knower above and ahead of the ignorant. No one who is filled with evil devices can know, neither can such understand the knowledge of God.

 The world today needs men that know God to help it become a better place. The good news is, God is raising men for Himself. The question is, Are you among them?

 If no, or not sure, get up and get the knowledge of God. Don't let the deceit of the devil continue to dominate over your life. You were created by God to be incharge, and not discharged by the devil.


#2. The world needs men that love God:

 "Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God." (Joshua 23:11).


>The word 'Love' has many definitions based on the ideologies of men, but the main matter of love is the nature of God (1 John 4:8).

 In this concert, let us look at the verb of love. The affection we have for people and things around us, is the fuel that keeps us around those people and things. The world has been polluted and no place is safe in the world, not even the building structure of the church nor the bulletproofed cars and houses privileged people are living in.

 Therefore the scripture says in 1 John 2:15 to 17;

 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."


 Beloved, what the world needs today is not men who are easily taken away by the pleasures and pressures of the world because the world itself knows its state of being. The devil and his demons are ruling and roaming about as roaring lions, looking for people to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

 That being said, the world is in need of men who are in love with Jesus. The world is looking for men who would prefer God to billions of dollars from the bondage of this deceitful world. People who would say, 'I do' to the things of God.

 Now, for a man to get to know God, he or she must first of all love God. The world is in need of people who love the Lord with all their hearts, souls and substances. People who don't stop at saying "I love" but go further to show they love God by loving the people around them.

 Take a look at 1st John 3:16 to 17 which says;

 "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?"


 Do you love God? How sure are you about your love for God?


#3. The world needs humbled men:

 "And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me." (Exodus10:3).


>The world needs humbled men! Pharaoh was a very proud king who parade himself as a god, thereby enslaving God's people. Today, we have many prominent men and women who use the power they possess to oppress the people. They proud about as if they own their lives, forgetting that before they were others greater than them, who are no more.

 Normally, the world is supposed to be an equalized place for every living being, but the pride of life has led to unpleasantries.

 The less privileged are weeping in sorrow, and the victims of discriminations are seeking for freedom. If they were to be less of pride and more of humility, we would have less of division and more of progression in unison.

 The alarm of the end of the world is sounding the need for humble men to help the world gain more grace to exist.

Why the humbled?

 The reason is because the humbled are the key holders to the doors leading to the holy God. They are the category of people the world needs, to make intercessions by going before the throne of grace to ask for grace and mercy for the needy world (Hebrews 4:16).

 Are you among the humbled? The scriptures says in James 4:5 and 6;

 "Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble."


 Also in 1st Peter 5:5 to 7, it says;

  "Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."


 You are that humbled brother and/or sister that the world needs today. The devil is afraid of what you are capable of doing to his kingdom. Why not go to God for more grace? 


#4 The World Needs Generous Men:

 "Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth." (Ecclesiastes 11:2).


 Job was a man of substances who never withheld from giving to the people. Infact, he was noted as the greatest in his land who housed many people and bore the burdens of the needy.

 It was reported of a man in the scriptures who was very wealthy as his harvest increased vastly. The man decided to store up for his future unknown, and that future was never featured.

 In our world today, the major problem depreciating the development of continents, countries and states is greed among the leaders and the lead. Many leaders no longer see meeting the needs of their followers or people as a priority. Instead, they embezzle the funds meant for the people's needs.

 The people show high level of greed among themselves. One is after another's hurt instead of helping one another. Have you now noticed what is missing? Generous men needed!

 The world is in need of generous men, and the application is to all because everyone has something to offer for the betterment of the world.

 If I may ask, have you ever thought of what you can do to affect the world positively? Do you know that you have what it takes to be better?

Something you should know:

 God has created many people and embedded enormous amount of wealth in their hands. The purpose was and is to help or assist God's creation who are in the need. Unfortunately, many of these people took advantage of what God put in their hands and turned away from God and purpose. Today, people are suffering unnecessarily. Labourers are having issues with payments for their labours. Qualified youths find it difficult to get employed. Meanwhile, their sent helpers are heaping their wealth for their unborn children, even to their tenth generations yet unknown.

 Now I see why Agur the son of Jakeh said, "Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: 

 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain." (Proverbs 30:8-9).

Are there no generous men in the world today?

 Historically, we had many people who were willing to give even from the little they had, to meet the needs of others. Many were even too generous that they could sacrifice their lives to save other lives from slavery. Many did lots of good things that continents, countries and states are still benefitting from.

 The good news is that we have generous men in the world today, but they are less compared to the greedy once. Unfortunately, the good once are going daily as it is with life, and there is more vacuum than expected. There is a note: VACANCY! VACANCY!! VACANCY!!! GENEROUS MEN NEEDED! 

 Why not let go of abusive lifestyles, greed, selfishness, hatred, jealousy and envy. Fill the application and get immediate approval for generosity because generosity, generates the greatest generations.

 Are you generous?


#5. The World Needs Spirit Filled And Spirit Led Men:

 "And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship." (Exodus 35:31).


A letter to the world and the church

 Moses was a leader ordained by God to lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt. Before he could embark on the mission, he encountered God, was filled and led by God's spirit. 

 A time came when Moses was to build a tabernacle for the Lord. He was led by the spirit of God to introduce Bezaleel the son of Uri of the tribe of Judah unto the people as one qualified to partake in the construction of the tabernacle. Reasons being that God had filled him with His spirit, "in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship."

 It is worth knowing that life is more of the spiritual than the physical. In the case where the world has been corrupted as it has, what kind of people do you think we need to correct and reconstruct our world? Is it the canal or the spirit filled/ spirit led?

 Beloved, the scriptures says in Romans chapter 8 from verse 6 to 9;

 "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his."


 The deceit in the world has filled the world with spiritual darkness and spiritual blindness. What we need are spiritual boys and girls, men and women, as well as the youths who possess the Word and light of God. The world needs such to enlighten it, and enable the presence of God to descend in glory and fill the hungry and thirsty souls. As well as set the captives free from the bondage of the devil. 

 Dear world, don't dishonour godly men because you need them in this ungodly world. 

 Better inventions will come in when those filled with and led by the spirit of God, are given the respect that is due to them.

  God's anger is determined upon the Earth against all that dishonour His own. Are you God's own? Are you filled and led by the spirit of God? If yes, you are needed. If no, you are not! For you to be, you must surrender to Jesus Christ.

 

Conclusion:

 Jesus Christ is the answer for the world today! Jesus is the way. Surrender to Him and you will be surrounded with safety in this wicked world.


Prayer:

 Lord Jesus, I thank you for this message. I ask for your forgiveness as I accept you as my Lord and Savior. Have mercy on me and help me to be useful in Thy hands to the salvation and redemption of the world. Thank you for saving me in Jesus name. 

 Thank you for your son, Joseph Edem Bassey. Bless and humble him to fear and follow Thee all the days of his life in Jesus name, amen. 


If you made that prayer, I want to say congratulations and thank you for praying for me. God bless you.
