Word: The Spiritual Dullard {Part 1}

THE Spiritual DULLARD {Part 1}

Today in our world, many people have acquired knowledge and have studied so well to become what is known as geniuses. Many are considered as bright, intelligent, sound, clever, innovative, lively, proficient, and knowledgeable in the affairs of this world.
Unfortunately, in the spiritual realm these same highlighted people could also be intellectually weak, dull, sluggish, uninteresting, incapable, gloomy, leaden, and unimaginative.

"For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." {Matt 13:15}
Physical dullness can be in action, outlook and in appearance {visible}. Spiritual dullness is purely spiritual and invisible, yet can be manifested.
The problem of Spiritual dullness prevents us from grasping the deeper truths of the Christian faith.

Attributes of the Spiritual Dullard
1.   Uninterested to listen to the word of God: The only way you can sharpen your spirit man is be educating it; through messages, bible and the likes. {Luke 8:10}.
2.   Weak Prayer: A spiritual dullard will keep praying the same prayers he has learnt for the past 5 to 10 years. He has not grown in it neither has he increased the prayer time.
3.   Their Minds are closed: A spiritual dullard will not see reasons to reality of spiritual facts because he has close up his mind. He is comfortable with his status thereby he remains stagnant. {Luke 8:5-7}
4.   Slow to understand the word of God: The spiritual dullard will find it difficult to understand the spiritual meaning of common simple and clear scriptures. Such people twist the bible and quote out of context just to suite their own self. {Luke 24:45}
5.   Does not do Bible meditation and forgets memorized scriptures.: They will be able to memorize song lyrics and remember all the football players names, their clubs, their positions, their earnings but cannot boast of 2 new memory verse in a week; Dullness.
6.   Weak Family Altar: Such people will hurry out of their homes without prayers thereby opening the home for attack and setting a bad example to children.

7.   Do not Participate in Evangelism: The bible says, he that wins a soul is wise, vice versa; he that does not win a soul is unwise; a dullard I n the spirit realm.{Prov 11:30},{Act1:8}.
8.   Does not observe quality Quiet Time: The time such person use in the presence of God is insufficient thereby the person lacks instructions that God intends to give to him so that he may prosper.
9.   Lukewarm in church activities: Such people will pour out their passion in non-spiritual things rather that contend for the faith. They have been attending their churches for years without joining a group. There is nothing you are doing in that church; if everyone was like you ,will the church still be functional as it is.
10.                   Lateness to church Services: This people will never afford to be late to their offices for five days in a week but will choose to be late to worship God just 1 day in the week.
11.                   High interest in worldly activities: Such people don’t joke with parties, outings even at the detriment of their spiritual life. You see some people go to night parties on Saturday and are too tired to come to church on Sunday.
12.                   Careless in spiritual things: Such people do not take spiritual matters serious. The fact is that the spiritual controls the physical. They disregard dreams hence do not hear God and they let the attack of the enemy be effective.The ten virgins did not prepare enough. Many come to church without a bible.
13.                   Disobedience to men of God: They don’t regard the instructions of God’s prophets {2 Chron 20:20}
14.                   Being easily distracted: {2 Tim 4:10} Demas forsook Paul because of things of the world. Such people will run after God only when in problems, if the problem goes, they return to their worldly way of life. This is the reason the old problems come back; distractions.
15.                   Walking with the dullard: When you walk with the wise you will be wise. Most spiritual dullard have friends and company that are not spiritually sound; if not those people would have educated him.{Prov 13:13}
16.                   No zeal for the things of God: Some even run away from sitting at the front of church; the same people fight for the front at the cinema or the football stadium.
17.                   Lost fellowship: Once the connection to the source of power is disconnected one begin to depreciate. God fellowship with Adam and eve and the moment the fellowship ended, and then tough times began for them. I pray; you will not lose your fellowship with God.
18.                   Easily tempted: A lot fall for so many small things. At any little temptation they fall; they are spiritually dull. {Mat 6:13}
19.    Loosing focus in life: You have to know and understand what you are looking for; then pursue it.
20.    There is spiritual decay: When a person’s spirit man lack nutrient, there is no growth; when there is no growth, stagnancy comes in, and then they begin the decay.
21.     Easily fall into sin and iniquity: A dullard is not sin conscious, so he commits sin at any opportunity because he does not understand the real consequences of sin. {Matthew 24:12}
There is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God {Rom 3:11}
