Monster is not a palatable word. It is a strange and horrible imaginary creature that has the capacity to instill fears in a person. Sin is likened to a monster because of its destructive tendency. It reduces a man to nothing; its’ wages is death. There is no good virtue in sin. It is horrible and ugly. It stings and destroys its victims at the end.

Sin makes one a vile person. It gives its’ victims unusual boldness to continue in it. In fact, sinners are quick to despise God and make mockery of His word. The way of sinners is hard and leads to death and destruction. The victims are painted with disgrace and shame. The stigma of sin does not leave its captives. The fear of God is not in the life of sinners. A sinner develops a thick skin that makes him wallow in foolishness.

It is only a man that wants destruction that touches sin. Sin separates a man from his God and no one that is separated from his source will ever survive its sting. There is no small sin. Sin is sin. There are no categories of sin. “Small sin” carries the same punishment as a “big sin.” There is no atom of pleasure in sin. Sin has made nonsense of some youths who live in it. Those who engage in sin and fail to repent will die in it. Therefore, this message calls for repentance to those who live in sin.

The youths are prone to lust and fornication. Amnon died as a result of fornication. Absalom defiled his father’s bed and went in for it. The world of youths is filled with lust and those who refuse to flee from it, will die like Samson. Sin does not fear power and anointing. In fact, those who are carriers of power and anointing are extremely careful to avoid it. Sin is cancerous and has to be avoided. Everyone who cares to listen must run away from it. It has the capacity to take its victim to hell.

Sin has nothing to offer to any man. No matter how colourful and attractive it may look, run away from it! Anything that has the appearance of sin must be avoided with utmost alacrity. Kingdom Power is raised to fight this ugly monster and all its friends. Lovers of Kingdom Power must join forces to fight it to a standstill. This is the reason Kingdom Power must not accommodate or conduct wedding for intending couples that have defiled themselves before wedding. The church is not ready to compromise its standard on this.

The mission of Kingdom Power is to defeat sin. The church has avowed covenant not to derail from this mandate. We must stand and defend it with all vigour and zest. As agent of change, our commitment should be geared towards safeguarding this uncommon truth.

It is time to stand for the truth. Endeavour to join in the battle against sin.
