LOVERS OF SELF

Share

There are certain things that won’t make sense to men but is the will of God and if a person loves him/herself too much then there will be a struggle obeying the will of God
Loving self can best be described as when people prefer themselves to God, the scriptures and divine perspective.
[2 Timothy 3:1-2] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Selfish people break rules as far as it profits them and One of the things the devil will use to sweep people off their feet in the last days is the love of self.
Symptoms of Love Of Self
– Self will
A person who will never give up what he wants at any cost and such persons who consistently pursue ‘self will’ are consistently going to miss God’s will
– Excessive hunger for praise/appreciation: Three ways to know,
+ when you still want to be praised even after doing wrong like those who hates to be blamed even when they’re wrong
+ Those that loved to be excessively praised for normal things they should do
+ people who never love to praise anybody for something good
– Excessive self admiration
Don’t be too engrossed in admiring yourself no matter how God has blessed you [Prov 27:2]
– Excess hunger for recognition
– Excessive demand for respect
– Excess hunger to be pleased and loved by everybody
some will love you & some won’t because you also don’t love everybody
[Luke 14:26] If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple
-START BEING INTERESTED IN OTHER PEOPLE-
The matter of dealing with humans is so serious that,
– you need a relationship to come into the earth
– the first food you’ll eat is attached to another person’s body
– and when you’ll die, you won’t bury yourself
I need you and you need me…Stop being over consumed by yourself
Life has taught us that the people most remembered on earth are not the richest but those who touched the lives of other people
Try to be most conscious of God above yourself and then love your neighbors as yourself
A selfish person is only interested in what benefits him but a selfless person is interested on benefiting but not at the expense of others
when you do well, let people praise you
when you do wrong, let people fault you
when you see people who run away from correction is because of love of self and people like that will always be put to the ground by flatterers
One key for overcoming the spirit of the last days is to turn away from those that are possessed with the spirit and the only thing that can neutralize all the onslaught of the devil is a fierce outpouring of the Holy Spirit & fire
