In relation to the Rock Gutter verdict, the reason given for the dismissal is “lack of evidence”, which included the failure to divulge information.
When a person keeps asking, after 24 months, for forgiveness, he grieves the Holy Spirit. Two years proves that your conscience is not free — that you have not honestly asked for pardon.
Another example of grieving the Holy Spirit is when a “pastor” is being called upon to pray for individuals during the altar call and the said “pastor” can make negative statements to the effect that — he is not mixing and mingling. In the same evangelistic public meeting, the said “pastor” also demonstrated a spirit of disobedience when he refused the several pleas of the commander at the time to perform the said task.
It also grieves the Holy Spirit when a “pastor” can walk with his Bible in his hand, especially on a Sabbath or Sunday morning, and doesn’t greet those along his path.
This means, however, that there are specks. Maybe lies, greed, malice, hate, bitterness, envy… But God is love and he dwells in truth.
It is my wish, that those who were accused in the said case do not be conformed to this world but that they would allow the Holy Spirit to transform their lives so that he can complete his work through them and that hearts may be led to Jehovah. Do not continue to allow the enemy to consume and overcome you. Free yourselves from his snares. God can and is ready to deliver you.
Only then would the foundations of forgiveness and healing be laid. Forgive yourselves, liaise with the parents and ask their forgiveness boldly (don’t send public messages).
When you do that, you can join with me to sing: “Tell me who has the final say”. Show that you are really thankful to Jesus for his mercies towards you… Clear your consciences. Allow God to bestow his Grace upon you so that you can sincerely TRUST Jesus more. Only then can we rejoice together, “To God be the glory, great things he hath done!!!
