January 2016: Love and Forgiveness; keys to Kingdom Glory and Blessings

Note: A world devoid of love and forgiveness is a world devoid of peace, a restless soul is a soul devoid of the power of love and forgiveness. The Spirit of God cannot reside with the spirit of man that despise others, unforgiving, unloving, bitterness, strife, jealousy and abhors hatred.

For the Holy Spirit is pure and simple and like a dove it cannot abhor in dirtiness or filthiness.

Ephesians 4: 32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us (Psalm 103:11,12).

Colossians 3: 13 Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

As you let go of the hurts, hatred, unforgiveness, bitterness and all manner of unproductive behaviour that hinders our fellowship and joy from the Father of grace with 2015.

Come into 2016, knowing that the grace, love, peace of God awaits you to guide your footsteps into His Plans and purpose.

I decree that any plans or devices of the enemy to hinder your progression in 2016 and beyond shall not hold in the name of Jesus.

I declare that you shall walk into the assigned glory and favour of God upon your life in 2016 and that you shall testify to His Goodness and mercy all the days of your lives.

That you shall know the love of God upon you and all that is yours through the grace in Christ Jesus and the workings of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Have a blessed and victorious year ahead knowing that you are fearfully and wonderfully created and you are special and of a royal priesthood, a people specially elected by God.

His Banner over us is His Love

Apostle John affirms that "God is love" ( 1 John 4:8 ). God does not merely love; he is love. Everything that God does flows from his love
Romans 5:8 says ". . .commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." The lost sinner living in rebellion and sin is still loved by the Lord. He loved us enough to die for us and pay our sin debt while we were sinning against Him. This shows that true biblical love is a matter of will....not of emotion. God choose to love us and His love was not based on our meriting it in any way.
"Agapao" This word is a verb used to describe God's divine love. The noun is "apape." Example is John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) This is the action of totally being committed to the well being of others without regard for their worthiness even unto death. That love was demonstrated by Jesus when He suffered and died for our sins. We, as Christians, are to show that unselfish love to others.

You are everything to me Lord.

Love Unfailing

His Grace and Favour upon you

But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. As He continues fulfilling God's purpose for redemption and grace. May you never be short of such grace and favour this season and the years ahead. Remain in His love and peace.
Yomi & Family

Ephesians 1: 4-6 Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

December 2015: Grace; The Power of the Living God Covers All

Galatians 5: 1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Ephesians 2:8 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves."

Song: Amazing Grace by Chris Tomlin

We might do all the religious things, go through the motion of being a church goer, yet not have the proper understanding of the freedom which we have acquired in Christ and thereby continue in legalism and ritualization of religion, believing we get right with God through our works or good deeds.
Some might still be a non-believer that has yet come to the realisation of the importance of the death on the cross. Either side of the group which we are, we both need to come to understand the freedom in the grace of God that was given to us by the atonement of the blood of Christ on the cross.

The only way any of us can enter into a relationship with God and have fellowship and communion with Him is because of His grace toward us. The love of the father is all encompassing and it never fails, it is everlasting and unmerited grace that while we were yet sinner the Father poured out His love and grace to redeem us back to Him.

Grace began in the Garden of Eden when God killed an animal to cover the sin of Adam and Eve. Genesis 3:21

He could have killed the first humans right then for their disobedience. But rather than destroy them, He chose to make a way for them to be right with Him. That pattern of grace continued throughout the Old Testament when God instituted blood sacrifices as a means to atone for sinful men. It was not the blood of those sacrifices that cleansed sinners; it was the grace of God that forgave those who trusted in Him

The word translated "grace" in the New Testament comes from the Greek word charis, which means “favour, blessing, or kindness.” Further translation in the Strong's Concordance gives this definition; "Graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude)" A Greek word that is related to charis is charisma (gracious gift). Both these words originated from another Greek word chairo (to rejoice, be glad, delighted).

In the Old Testament, the Hebrew term used is Chen, which is defined in Strong's as "favour, grace or charm; grace is the moral quality of kindness, displaying a favourable disposition".

When the word grace is used in connection with God, it takes on a more powerful meaning. Grace is God choosing to bless us rather than curse us as our sin deserves. It is His benevolence to the undeserving.

Grace is not just forgiveness of our sin and mercy on our misery, it is also a divine power that comes to us through Jesus absolutely freely for the sake of ministry.

Ephesians 1: 4-6 Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

“The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you.” Colossians 1:27 MSG

The Law came by Moses, the righteousness and holiness of God written in cold hard stone. The goodness of God leads you to repentance and a change of your heart contents.

Max Lucado says, “Our God is in the business of changing hearts.”

When we truly accept the grace of God and allows it to become operational in our lives we will begin to experience a gradual change of attitude in our heart that demonstrates the power of the grace working in us, we must experience a change in the character of the old man that has been given up through the acceptance of Christ grace and as Apostle Paul recognises in Galatians 2: 20….. It is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me.

Surely if Christ lives in us, there will be that transformation as exhibited by Apostle Paul, who was once a terror to the Christian but became the most influential person for our Lord Jesus.

“I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed not self-willed.” Ezekiel 36:26 MSG

When people talk about being Christian and abhors pains, regrets, un-forgiveness, disappointment, Stigma of their past and other various conditions, it simply means they are not allowing the power of the grace received in Christ to flow and work in them. Perfect Love cast out fear.

Song: I would not go back to the way it used to be – William McDowell

Romans 8: 28-30 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

How much grace do we give others? The battlefield is the mind.

When we completely surrender to the Grace we have in Christ, we will walk in freedom and power of the grace and this will extend to the way we relate to ourselves and the ability to forgive and understand others.

The depth of love must come from within us to the outside expressing a genuine love to others.
Your love starts with God, then your immediate circle is your spouse and children, followed by family/friends/immediate neighbours, then co-workers/people you meet casually, finally outside world. The centre holds all things together.

Note: The good the Lord takes before they become corruptible, while He gives the wicked the chance to repent by the length of time they sojourn on earth so that they to come to a place of understanding of His Grace, goodness and love.

Ezekiel 33:11 Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die…

Jesus asked “What man having a hundred sheep, loses one will not leave the ninety nine to seek out the lost one”

***The power of the living God resides in us through the Holy Spirit. Grace comes with Power***

We love you, but as you celebrate the season, remember the grace and power of his grace is for you.

Grace in Christ Jesus

God's Plan for Your Life

He waits patiently to walk with you to fulfill His plan for you.
Seek him and you shall be blessed of HIm which adds no sorrow.
Have a great day and a lovely weekend in Jesus Mighty name. Amen

November 2015: El-HaNe'-eman: Increase our Faith and Believe

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, (El-HaNe'-eman) the faithful God.

God's faithfulness is a matter of His being. It is not that He chooses to be faithful. God cannot be unfaithful! God is the standard for faithfulness and His faithfulness is indisputable. But we as humans can exhibits a standard of faith that falls below God’s expectation despite our professing believe in God and Christ.

The Israelites fell short several times in their faith and believe in the Almighty God during their walk with Him in the wilderness despite the wondrous works and signs performed to get them out of Egypt. In Mark 16: 14 Jesus rebuked the disciples for their unbelief when they were told that He had risen.

Thomas walked with Jesus and witnessed a lot of His miracles but fell short in faith and believe when he doubted that Christ had risen as in John 20: 29…. Thomas because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

This is indicative that we might go to church, fellowship, pray and do all the religious things, but our faith and believe is still shaky but who can we better call upon than God Himself to help with our faith and believe as was demonstrated by the father of the child in Mark 9:24 as he said to the Lord, please help with my unbelief.

God's faithfulness is at the core of His very nature. He is all knowing, all seeing, holy, the creator, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, just, sovereign, unchanging, and loving, because He is faithful to His own character. God never changes any of His attributes. Paul drew on this truth when he wrote to the Thessalonians in I Thessalonians 5:24, "Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it." Because God is faithful we must cry out to Him in every situation and He will respond.
Faith and belief are core keys with our relationship with God as the righteous shall live by faith in order to receive the promises of the Father to those that are faithful. In Hebrew 11: 1 faith is described as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrew 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
When we exhibit faith and believe we accelerate our receiving as was pointed out by Jesus Christ to his disciples about the great faith of the centurion in Luke 7:1-10 and on several occasions He linked most of the healing to the faith the people possessed and the believe in Him. (See also Luke 8: 43-48, Luke 17: 11-19).

Abraham who is the father of faith, demonstrated the importance of faith by firstly not looking into the deadness of both his body and that of Sarah but believing God that he will be the father of many nations, secondly the child who was be the source of this inheritance, he continued in great faith by his willingness to sacrifice Him. This was accounted for his righteousness.
David exhibited great faith in God’s ability to deliver him from the hands of Goliath through the use of a sling and a stone.

Jesus Christ demonstrated the absolute faith and believe in the Father that sent him, that He is able to resurrect Him on the third day, hence we have appreciation that nothing is impossible with God.

*** With man it is Impossible but all things are possible with God***

For God to help with our unbelief, we must begin to exhibit a degree of trust in Him. We must have appreciation that God is reliable, good, honest and effective and build our assurance on the ability and character of the Father.

We have to have hope which is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to the events we are seeking God’s intervention on. We must desire what we want to happen to be in alignment to the purpose of God for us and seek an understanding through the Word of God.

The word of God in itself is a powerful tool to help with our unbelief, he who must find God must also be prepare to spend precious time (find time) to search and dig deeper into the book of life.

David said I shall not sacrifice to my God what has cost me nothing. This is because there is value on what is given and reward is based on appreciation, fellowship, communion, relationship, worship and knowing the God we serve, as those that know Him shall do exploit.

***Faith demands that we live out what we see in future and live it as now.***

Romans 10:17 so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Love makes us humble, charitable, appreciative and obedient and to operate in faith, we must have the love of the father residing in us, for those who love the Father will have an inherit understanding within which the revelation of the Holy Spirit gives to us as believers. As in John 14:21……. It is He who loves Me. And he who loves me will be loved by my father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.

Psalm 18:31: for who is God beside the Lord? And who is the rock expect our God?

Psalm 86:10 For you are great and do marvellous deed; you alone are God.

The essence of Christ ministry is that the father can do all things, we confess, we repent, we are reconciled and redeemed to him. We come into fellowship, Communion, worship with Him and discover his glorious goodness for while we were yet sinner he has made his love known to us through the Son.

Philippians 2:1-2 therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfil my joy by being like-minded, having same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Note: The thoughts of our mind are powerful and a continuous pure thought will germinate goodness and abundance into life, the battlefield is the heart, purify it, have it sanctified by the word of truth and you shall conquer all.
*** Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid***

John 15:7 if you abide in me, and my words abode in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

John 3:34 For whom God has sent speaks the word of God, for God does not give the Spirit by Measure.

Hear the word of God and apply it with faith, believe it and live it out and God that has called you out of your sinful nature will glorify himself by honouring and granting your requests in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen

***Keep in prayer and fasting***

We love you, remain in faith and believe always that God has your best interest at hand.

Yahweh Tsidkenu: Do not Let us be Deceived

Yahweh Tsidkenu means the Lord is righteous and we can only achieve righteousness through Jesus the anointed Christ of God. God is Spirit and Truth. Those who seek to worship Him must do so in Spirit and truthfully as the Father seeks such to worship and fellowship with Him, only then can His words becomes alive in us. (See John 4: 23-34).

God cannot and will not deceive us but our flesh, thoughts and deeds can easily be manipulated by the devil and his cohorts if we do not constantly engage in fellowship and worship with the Father. We need the engagement of the Holy Spirit to be able to stand the wiles of the deceiver and accuser of the brethren know as Satan because Adam sinful nature resides in us.

Revelation 12: 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Deceit is the act or practice of deceiving; concealment or distortion of the truth for the purpose of misleading; duplicity; fraud; cheating.

Deceitfulness is the simplest arsenal of the devil’s weapon as it can be imperceptibly implemented to convince a person who is not fully in Spirit to believe things that are underline of the actual truth. The fundamental purpose of deceit is to derail the person being deceived from the actual full content of the truth. Satan uses this weapon with full knowledge of the truth about God and so he is better placed to distort the truth as he did with Eve in the Garden of Eden.

In Genesis 3:1 one should take note that the very first question to Eve by Satan was “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” In engaging in further conversation with the devil, Eve left the coverage of God and was thus deceived. The devil understands the weaknesses of man as he is a fallen angel that had served under God before the creation of Man.
Genesis 3:13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate”.
Because of this very first deceit, Sin was born which is now the constant weapon of deceit as it brings us into captivity of the flesh which is at war with the things of God.

Galatians 5:17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.

Lot was deceived by the greed of his eyes when Abram requested that they split the grazing place for their flocks. He chose the land close to Sodom and Gomorrah which cost his wife’s life, his dignity and gave him a disoriented family.
Deceit can be subtle and cunning as these are the attribute of the devil, so we should strive constantly not to feed on the things of the eyes or desires of the flesh as the devil can use anybody close to us to infiltrate our defences such as was done to King Herod through the beautiful dance performed by Herodias’s daughter. (See Matthew 14:1-12). David also fell under the lust of the flesh by getting involved with Bathsheba. (See 2 Samuel 11). For the eyes have a lustful nature to it.

It was also evident that the devil was at work even in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ and on occasions he was able to deceive Peter but for the Spirit of God that dwells in Christ, He discerned the wiles of Satan as seen in Matthew 16: 23 But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's." and his denial of Christ was covered under grace well before it happen through the love of Christ for him.

Peters’ case demonstrated that you might be around the temple of God but if you are not filled with the Spirit of God, One can easily fall prey to the tricks of the devil and in John 13:2 ….. the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son to betray Him. (Betrayal of Christ by one of His disciple)

For he (Satan) lurks around every nooks and comers of where the children of God operates as in Job 1: 7 And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”

Temptation is in itself not sin, it is the practice of the temptation that becomes sin, and for Christ was Himself tempted and was able to conquer through the Spirit of the Father demonstrating that we can also overcome with Christ Spirit in us. (Read Matthew 4: 1-11).
A lot of people fall under temptation and become slaves to sins through the lust of the flesh because they fail to hold on tightly to their faith and their confession in Christ.

We can see from the expression by Apostle Paul that sin can prevail in our nature not because we do not want to do good but we have fallen from grace and we can only operate under grace through the love of Christ Jesus. (Romans 7:15-19).

If we fail to operate in the realm and guidance of the Holy Spirit. We cannot totally control our sinful nature for falling bondage to the wiles and deceit of the devil.

Deceit can be perpetuated by those we consider as working in line for God’s kingdom such is the audacity of the beast know as Satan and his cohorts. We were clearly warned by Christ and the apostles.

Matthew 24: 4-5 Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying I am Christ and will deceive many. Verse: 24 for false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, even if possible the elect.

2 Corinthians 11: 14- 15…. Satan himself transform himself into an angel of light, therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. (see also Mark 13:5-6, 22)

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.

We can also see in Acts 16: 16-18 the girl was using demonic power and the power of divination which is associated with the devil to make gain for her masters.

Mark 13: 23 But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand.

Some people perception of Satan as weird and gruesome creature makes it impossible for them to come to terms that Christ has warned us that the wolves can camouflage in sheep clothing in order to take the sheep prey and many are deceived by false doctrines. There is no other doctrine other that which Christ laid down which central theme is the redemption of sins, believe and faith in Him brings us into eternal relationship and fellowship with God and that all glory and honour is reserved for God the father.

He who must defeat the devil and his principalities must be well groomed in things of God, we wrestle not against flesh but spiritual beings in high places standing tall against the work of God. (See Ephesians 6: 11-18)

1 Peter 5: 8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith,…..


An Apostle or servant of God must live a life that is soberly reflective of the Christ in him, that the calling may manifest the glory of Christ who died and has risen. The focus is on Christ as the ultimate saviour and redeemer of all souls and love is key and central to the heart of such person, daily loving, caring and feeding their flocks with the living word of God. The calling is to serve and not be served as demonstrated by our Lord and saviour Christ Jesus. (Matthew 20:28, Mark 10:44-45, John 13: 12-14, 1 Peter 4: 10-11, Galatians 5: 13-14, Philippians 2: 1-11)

The very essence of Christ coming into the world is to bring us to the knowledge of God the Father and for us to develop a relationship via him totally trusting in Him, worshipping, adoring and glorifying the Father for his agape love for us and His desire that we live righteously for He is an Holy, pure and righteous God. To bring us into a place of communion and rest in Him.

Hebrew 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins….

These days we see people glorifying themselves and taking credits for the glory of God showing in the lives of their followers and accepting accolades that belongs to Christ Jesus and the Father. It should be noted that it is only God that deserves the glory for man remains a vessel of honour used to propagate the kingdom of God now and it’s coming when the Son of man comes back in full glory.

Romans 16:18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. (See also Philippians 3:18-19)

The Devil and his cohorts seems to want to share this glory for themselves but their end is certain. Surely the Lord does not share his glory and honour with anyone and by their fruits you shall know them. It is written that we must test all spirit to affirm which is of God, for all spirits bow to the name of Christ and confess Him as Lord of all.

It is not in eloquent speaking, demonstration of sign and wonders that totally determines that a person or church is of God. It is not in religiousness or legalism that determines the acceptance into the kingdom of God. For some people would claim to be Christian but would bring a different message and a counterfeit Christianity. (Read 2 Corinthians 11: 3-4, Galatians 1:6-7).

Any doctrine that is contrary to that which Christ preached or His crucifixion and the affirmation that He has risen and that He is the anointed son of God is not the Gospel of truth. The full context of Christ’s teaching is in His direction that all things comes from the Father of grace, the truth, the light whom does not a have a shadow of doubt and His desire to have a relationship and fellowship with us.

We love you, remain in faith and believe always that God has your best interest at hand.

Let the Word of God Speak

The word of God is potent and so powerful that it will infuse a new life into that which appears dead.
There is always inherent power in the word of God that enable us to do whatever He commands as was demonstrated by Christ Jesus in John 5: 5-9, the man with the infirmity for thirty eight years walked and in Mark 1: 40-42, firstly the man was aware of his helplessness and hopeless state but he also knew who could change His situation and he obeyed the spoken word and was healed.
Mark 2: 2-12 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”….. He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”
Where our resources are exhausted and situation becomes futile as was experienced by Simon in Luke 5:1-11, we can count on the word of God, Jesus made them go back to the spot where it was impossible for them to make a catch initially by themselves and turned impossibility into abundance because the presence and word of God created a newness in the atmosphere for the change in circumstances.
Today I pray with you and for you that the word of God will manifest in your situation and make a total change to all those fears, worries, anxieties, health and financial problems, mountains or Goliath and any issue that has being troubling your mind, heart and spirit. That the potent word of God through Christ will cause you to receive favour, grace, blessing and abundance of Joy and a new happiness that flows from the throne of Grace in you by the special working of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Be Blessed


Oh taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trust in Him. Oh fear the Lord, you His saint. There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. (Psalm 34: 8-10)
Prayer
From this moment on, you shall cease to lack anything good in your life for your heart desire is for the Lord. The good Lord shall fulfill all your petition before Him in the name of the anointed Christ Jesus and His goodness and mercy shall be with you all the rest of your days through the Holy Spirit that dwell within You. Amen

Good Day and have a blessed weekend to the glory of God in you.

Let your anointing fall

Proverb 4: 7-9 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding...... She will bring you honour, when you embrace her, She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.
This week let God's anointing be upon you as you stand in His presence and word to the glory of Christ Jesus. Amen

Revival Message: Selfless Love and Faith are Kingdom Fellowship Keys

When we have the love of the Father in our heart, we become more than willing to obey His every command and we begin to align our thoughts to His will to achieve that which He has purposed to give to us from beginning of the earth. The word of God becomes established in our lives when we actively begin to seek His kingdom and righteousness. The love of God towards us is unshakeable and all-encompassing to accommodate our inadequacy as long as we demonstrate this with a genuine heart.

John 3:16-17 (EIV) For God so loved the world, which He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.…

David was accounted as a man after God’s heart and if we should take account of his faults, we would not have understanding why he was loved by the Father. In spite of all his inadequacy he exhibited a willingness to testify to the goodness of God and was always quick to acknowledge the errors of his ways. He sought God in everything he did and had a passion of seeking God in everything he does. For He loved and feared God.

Acts 13:22 He raised David to be their King, concerning whom He testified and said “I Have found David the son of Jesse. A man after my heart who will do all my will.”

Our Lord and saviour demonstrated a selfless love for us and in obedience to the Father’s will he laid down His life to be the bridge between us. For this every reason he became highly exalted among all the earth and in heaven.

John 10:17-19
"For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. “No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.

Our calling is to emulate this selfless love to God and our neighbours, when we have the love of the father in us we appreciate and see the beauty in all thing around us.

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.(Philippian 2:5-7)

2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

When we humble ourselves before God and fellowship with Him in Spirit and truth, he will abide in us through the gifting of the Holy Spirit. Exercising faith and obedience comes with our understanding and fellowship with God and this was demonstrated by our father of faith Abraham.

Genesis 22: 11-13 (EIV)
But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” He said, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son.

Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: “Charity is the bond of perfection (Colossians 3:14);” and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God’s: “The principal effect of love is so to unite the wills of those who love each other as to make them will the same things” It follows then, that the more one unites his will with the divine will, the greater will be his love of God.

Mortification, meditation, receiving Holy Communion, acts of fraternal charity are all certainly pleasing to God — but only when they are in accordance with his will. When they do not accord with God’s will, he not only finds no pleasure in them, but he even rejects them utterly and punishes them.

We must imbibe Matthew 5:14-16 into our lives because Christians are the lights of the world and can only be reflected by our conduct and service to God. If we proclaim God’s love and we respond in love, we will actively give generously as a lover will give to his/her new found heartthrob. Our generosity and attitude not only points others to the goodness of God, it also appropriate response to what God has given us.

We as children and followers of Christ must willing conduct our actions with love as in Ephesians 5:1-2 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Note that as His children we are called to imitate Him and our selfless giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response of what he has done

When we demonstrate our love, God is able to react above all our expectation. He is able to uplift us beyond our imagination and cause a change in every situation to favour us even to the point where our enemies becomes at peace with us. For mighty is He who is in us and greater are His miracles. God calls things in to existence as if they already exist and He is abundantly able to fulfil all his promises to us. Who can put a charge against His elect? Nobody

Genesis 22: 15-18
Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

To prosper within the Kingdom, there must be a selfless demonstration of love towards the family of God and His creation. The apostle were able to demonstrate this by giving all they had to follow Christ Jesus and this lead to the birth of the church.

Note: it is only God that glorifies and lifts up. And when he says yes no body can say no. when He opens the door nobody can lock it. He is the one who makes great and brings down. May he not bring us down or shame us due to Lack of obedience.
When a father loves his child and the child reciprocate with same love and does pleasing things all the time in front of the father. Surely the father will go an extra mile to make sure that the child is comfortable.

We pray with you and for you today that as you seek a new anointing and move of God in your situation that you will humble yourself and begin to demonstrate your love and exercise faith to the Father, King of kings, everlasting Lord and that you extend such love to all of God’s creations. Has you do this that He will highly glorify His name through answered prayers to you in the mighty and prospering name of our Lord Jesus the anointed Christ. Amen

We love you but God loves you most. Remain blessed and favoured of the Lord. Receive your anointing and prosper from henceforth. Begin to fulfil all God grand plans for your life in Jesus name. Amen

August 2015: El Elyon: Restore Breath of life to My Dead and Dry Bones

Sometimes we experience Spiritual emptiness in our lives which makes us comes to a standstill and at these times we find it difficult to carry on praying because we are overwhelmed by situations that feels insurmountable. There seems to be problems in everything such as relationships, business, work, debts, finances, and ministries, suffering various infirmity, barrenness, emptiness, dryness of good things, poverty or lack, ill favour, and above all spiritual dryness or lack of God’s power among many other misgivings. These experiences can significantly be liken to a period of deadness and dry bones in the valley. The valley represents a low point in our lives as was illustrated to the Prophet in the vision in Ezekiel 37: 1-10 and what is significant in this vision is the prophet’s realisation that God’s power is immeasurable.

Ezekiel 37: 3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.

*** For with man it is impossible but all is possible with God***

Note: Prophet Ezekiel was fully aware that for any restoration or revival to take place in the deadness and dryness of the bones it was totally dependent on God. We must come to this realisation before there can be a change in our situation to the glory of God.

There must be a realisation as to the hopelessness in our own inability to resolve the situation and an affirmation that God is able to do all things for those that are called according to His purpose. The prodigal son also came to this realisation in the sinful state he was as stated in Luke 15:17 and affirmed that he was better off going back to his father. If sins reigns in our body and it controls our life then we have spiritual death. God can leave us to our devises and fleshy intuitions until we arrive at a place of reasoning and acceptance of His supreme being. The heavens will also rejoice when there is a conversion of a soul from its sinful nature to that which is right with God.

Isaiah 1: 18 Come now, and let us reason together Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow

Luke 15:24 for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost and is found.

Disobedience can bring us into a place of captivity and spiritual death as it was with the Israelites in their Babylonian exile where they were completely dry spiritually, physically, financially and materially. The Israelites became carnally minded, lost the purpose and benefits of God’s covenanted promises and blessings in their lives and nation through disobedience to God’s command. But God remained faithful.

2 Chronicles 7: 14-15 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…

*** You cannot serve two masters, either you serve one and leave the other***

We can come into a place of deadness and dryness sometime through the test of faith as it was for Job in the book of Job 1:9 So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? But the beauty is that when we hold on to the confession of our faith and remain strong in the Lord we have assurance of a better latter days.

Job 42:12-13 Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters.

In the case of barrenness such as experienced by Hannah in the book of 1 Samuel 1:6-7…. because the Lord had closed her womb. So it was, year by year, when she went up to the house of the Lord … therefore she wept and did not eat.

In this situation the bible makes us realise that Hannah never stop from going to the house of the Lord and that actually she recognises her hopelessness and cried out the more to the Lord in prayer knowing that God was the only answer to her problems in verse 10 the bible says that she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish and in verse 11 she made a vow to back up her request to God. It came to fruition and she bore a boy named Samuel and she kept her vow to the Lord.

ISAIAH 55: 8-9 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

God sees our situations most especially the terrible situations of His people attracts Him more than any other. When He sees, He acts to deliver, most often when His people cry to Him. God is full of compassion for us His children, no matter how hard and serious the problems we found ourselves in, whether through disobedience or ignorance or procrastination. God is also full of good thoughts of peace and not of evil for us. This is the first thing we must know and have confidence in whenever we find ourselves in the valley of life exile and captivity.

Crying out can be liken to the prophesy made by Ezekiel as was instructed by God in verse 4-5 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.

***There is no other God beside Him for only God is El Olam (Everlasting God) ***

The word of God is potent and so powerful that it will infuse a new life into that which appears dead. There is always inherent power in the word of God that enable us to do whatever He commands as was demonstrated by Christ Jesus in John 5: 5-9, the man with the infirmity for thirty eights walked and in Mark 1: 40-42, firstly the man was aware of his helplessness and hopeless state but he also knew who could change His situation and he obeyed the spoken word and was healed.

Where our resources are exhausted and situation becomes futile as was experienced by Simon in Luke 5:1-11, we can count on the word of God, Jesus made them go back to the spot where it was impossible for them to make a catch initially by themselves and turned impossibility into abundance because the presence and word of God created a newness in the atmosphere for the change in circumstances.

Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope…….I will be found by you, says the Lord, ….

When one is in this position of deadness and the bones are dry, there are three things that need to take place.

• We must grasp what could be the cause of the situation; Sin, disobedience or test of faith
• We must appreciate our limitation and Cry out or prophesy to the situation through the word of God.
• Know that God is the only one that can breathe life, revive and restore and that He is an orderly God that will perform in the stages of body first then breathe.

Isaiah 44: 3 “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed and my blessing upon thine offspring

Restoration and Revival is of God and only He alone has the power and withal to do just that, a man of God can prophesy into a situation only at the command of God that it is when it can become spiritually fruitful for God has the grace, mercy and compassion to revamp all situation.

We love you, remain in faith and believe always that God has your best interest at hand.

FATHER: IN YOUR MERCY HEAR OUR PRAYERS

God is infinitely wise, powerful and good. He is the total embodiment of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, love and compassion. We cannot accuse Him of being unfair in his dealings with us as humans, it was our sinfulness that entrapped us and condemned us. Yet God, out of His infinite mercy chooses to save and bless us.
The basis of God’s mercy is not in a person’s conduct but His own compassion for us. God’s Sovereign makes Him free to show mercy to whom He chooses and grace upon us is not based on our achievements.

Note: When we pray and expect the answer to our prayers, we must exercise faith and believe that the prayer has been answered. Some people pray, yet have doubts in their mind and their heart is not totally committed to God and when they don’t get the desired answer, they easily fall prey to the notion that “Prayers do not work”.

Matthew 17:20 …. Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there; and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
V21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

Bear in Mind: Our walk with God is an essential and integral part to our prayer life, for you to expect the grace and mercy from a loving father, there must be a relationship.Children expects presents from their parents and makes such demand because they have a relationship with them. When children makes such requests, they often expect instant answers but the parents uses their discretion as to the right and appropriate time for the presents.

*** Relationship is Key ***

Jeremiah 9:24 “But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, exercising loving-kindness, judgement and righteous in the earth. For in these I delight “says the LORD.

*** Relationship leads to Trust ***

Jeremiah 17: 7-8 Blessed is the man who trust in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by waters…… And will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will he cease from yielding fruit.

Note: - God’s love and grace is unmeasurable and as such he is willing and able to grant us our requests through his mercy.
He who must serve and expects answers from God, must first believe that he exists and must be willing to walk in faith and in Spirit and in truth. In seeking the grace of God, one needs to activate the relationship by repentance of sin and firstly requesting for the baptism and direction of the Holy Spirit as was pointed out in Luke 11: 13 that our heavenly father is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask.

***A relationship with God changes meaningless wearisome toil into spiritual productivity and purpose. ***

Romans 8: 26 Likewise the Spirit also helps our weakness. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning’s which cannot be uttered.

Important: It is the Spirit that knows the things of God and as such it searches all things according to the will of God, therefore prompting us to make prayers in accordance to the will of God. Prayers open/unlocks the door of impossibility when we align our faith, believe and trust in God through obedience and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound towards you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things may have abundance for every work.

Matthew 19:26 …. “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

***Prayers of possibility is the grace of God***

Mark 11:24 Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them.
Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

***Grace is unmerited favour and blessing***

King Solomon was aware how important the grace of God was in answering prayers that at the time he was dedicating the temple of God, he prayed that in God’s mercy that all prayers rendered towards the temple should be granted so that people far and near would know that God is the is the “Great I am that I am”.
King David appreciated God’s mercy in all his exploits, that he always sought His grace in every situation. Jesus Christ demonstrated how important it was to seek God’s mercy in order that His grace is manifested in all situation even though He was God personified and sinless before the father as a Son.
As Apostle Paul pointed out in 2 Corinthians 4:1 therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. And he stated in verse 15 for all things are for your sakes that grace having spread through the many may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it was written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have it entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.

Faith is received as a gift but it’s matured by walking in steps of obedience

***Give me an exhibit of your faith and I shall release My blessing (grace). ***

Obedience is key to receiving God’s mercy, sometimes God uses things that might seems to be foolishness in our sight to show his mercy and grace upon our requests such as bringing down the walls of Jericho, God commanded that the people walk around the wall seven times singing praise to His holy name, as the instruction was carried out to the letter, the outcome was glaring for all to see as the walls of Jericho fell down. It is important to realise that has the Lord has spoken surely that is what he will do and take confidence that it is not by power or strength but the Spirit of The Lord.
In 2 Chronicles 20. King Jehoshaphat demonstrated obedience to God’s instruction in order to receive his mercy on their prayers and in V21, He appointed those that will sing praises to the beauty of His Holiness saying “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever”. One should always take courage that the Lord will always fulfil what he has promised to do and no matter the situation, as Apostle Paul rightly said “ His grace is sufficient in our weakness, for in this He is made strong”.

Prophet Jerimiah was sure of a favourable outcome because he had understanding of God’s mercy to win him the battle of set up by his persecutors that he stated in Jeremiah 20:11 but the LORD is with me as a mighty awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble and will not prevail, they will be greatly ashamed for they will not prosper. Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten.

Note: When the mercy of God grants our prayers, the anointing oil and His grace overflows in our situation for the benefit of all to see that His goodness endures forever to those that seeks Him.

Now: The basis of receiving the mercy is also in our conduct towards God. Gentleness and humility are ways to quicken answers to prayer also encompassing obedience and listening to the word of God guarantees His will be done in our lives.Goodness, faithfulness, forgiveness, self- control, meekness, patience, joy and peace, love and kindness are virtues that God expects from us in exchange for the grace and mercy.

All is achievable by the little steps we take daily in developing that wonderful relationship with the father. Bear in mind that it takes a powerful person to wait on God and meekness is strength under control.

James 5:13-15 (NLT) Are any of you suffering hardship? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You sing praises. Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.

***confession is an important key***

Bear in Mind: The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful result by the mercy of our great God.

***The blessing of God makes one rich and add no sorrow with it***

We join with Apostle Paul to say that for this reason we bow our knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named that he would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Remember always that we love you and we always have thoughts of you in our prayers that the almighty Father that loves most will always be merciful towards you and all that is yours and that he will grant his unmerited grace upon you to favour and bless you beyond your comprehension.

Remain in faith and believe always that God has your best interest at hand.

Appreciate God's Presence in the Quietness of Time
In the quietness and coolness of the morning, I seek your face. In the dawn of a new day, I seek your wisdom. In the rising of the sun, I seek your knowledge. In the dusk of the evening, I seek your understanding.
Father, You created the season and time for a purpose, You alone bear witness to creation and You reveal Yourself to those who will humble themselves and seek you by faith. To those who rely not on their ability but totally surrender to you, these you show your innermost treasure and glory.
For those who must know you must come with a clean heart and the right purpose. For your knowledge is beyond comprehension and your wisdom is not for the self-righteous or the wise.
You alone understands the mystery of life and reveal it to those who worship in Spirit and truth.
There is no other God beside you, there is no existence beyond You. To You be all glory and honour. You are highly lifted up, highly exalted and highly revered. You are the most high and I seek only today and forevermore in everything of life. Amen

Know Today: The keys to Blessings
The Psalmist said I shall praise the lord with all my soul and sing of His goodness all the days of my life. He further emphasis that I will sing a new song daily on to the Lord who out of the goodness of His treasures He blesses me. And the bible makes us realise that the Psalmist was counted as a man after God’s heart and He was highly blessed and favoured of the Lord. The psalmist was so much counted worthy that His Lineage is blessed with the most high priest Jesus Christ and under whose name every knee shall bow and confess Him as Son of God. Praise the Lord and give thanks with a grateful heart and see Him pour out His blessing upon you and deliver you from all issues. He deserves the glory and honour.
Important keys to blessing are praising and thanksgiving, as you seek the lord’s favour and grace over any issue, believe you will receive and continue in these keys and I believe the doors are open for your testimonies.
Psalm 86: 11-13 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever. For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.…
Colossians 3: 16-17 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

July 2015: Abba Father, Transform Me by the Power of Your Spirit.

As Christians, we might have assumed that we are transformed by the confession of our sins and the acceptance of Christ Jesus but this is actually the beginning of the process. Transformation is not what we can attain by our efforts but it is what we allow God to do within us to attain the full glory of the transformed and renewed man, this is the total submission to God’s will and the Holy Spirit direction and instruction to the changes required to attain that status of a transformed being. We cannot change ourselves by our own strength or meritorious works.

By Apostle Paul owns confession in Romans 7:14-24, He illustrated what dilemma we face individually, if we have to rely on ourselves for righteousness and holiness without the Spirit of God. For we often will find ourselves doing things we really don't want to do because of our fleshly nature, so we need the Spirit of God to operate within us to bring us to a greater and better purpose.

Transformation is the secret and reality of Christian life, transformation produces what Christianity is all about. Without it, one can be a genuine born again believer for years without experiencing transformation. This is the metamorphosis from the Adam man to the glory man Christ Jesus.

***Those who find me, find Life***

The transformed being works in the fullness and in the glory of Christ Jesus which can only be given by the Spirit of God as was pointed out in 2 Corinthians 3: 18 by Apostle Paul and furthermore in Romans 8: 29 -30 it is confirmed that it is God’s goal for those that He foreknew and predestined to come into this fullness of glorified status. Transformation prove God’s will is good, acceptable and perfect for the purpose of having everlasting life with Him as was intended at the time of creation which Christ affirmed in John 6: 38-40.

A fully transformed person as stated in Ephesians 3:17-18, through the spirit of Christ will be able to comprehend with the saint the breath, length, depth and height of the things of God. It should also be noted that no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God as made clear in 1 Corinthians 2: 11-12. So we must allow that Spirit to absolutely be at the forefront in order that the transformation takes place.

Taking example from nature’s transformation of the caterpillar to a butterfly, one will see that there is a distinctive change in the characteristic from one form to the other form through the stage when the caterpillar remains in its cocoon before blooming out as butterfly. So it must be for a transformed person, there must be that distinctive difference between the sinful Adam man and the transformed Christ-like man.

The cocoon period will amount to each individual ability to stay in the presence of God obeying and living by all His instructions and direction through the working of the Holy Spirit that dwells within us. Bear in mind that there are incomplete metamorphosis, so to reach the full bloom, we must constantly imbibe the very nature of Christ by patiently seeking the face of God daily in everything until His nature starts shining through us. A transformed person must be the beautiful and glorious being of the former being.

***God’s Spirit inspires deeper understanding***

The baptismal power of the Holy Spirit is key to the process of transformation as pointed out in Titus 3:5, for it is the grace of God that develops the process and makes us operate in the likeness of Christ. We can prepare ourselves by preserving our bodies as the temple of God as expressed in 1 Corinthians 6:19.

***The transformed Mind Works in the Fullness of Christ Jesus***

The desire for the change must be stirred up within us through our relationship with the Father of all truth, for it is the Spirit that inspires us to have the yearning to be Christ-like. . The process of true change takes place as we are weaned from our love and worship of self, pleasure and this world; and our hearts become wholly devoted to Christ. Transformation liberates our mind from the things of the world and energise us into the spiritual likeness of God setting us free from the shackles of life. Romans 6: 3-8 gives us understanding that as we are baptised, we surrender our sinful nature to death through the immersion and we rise to begin a new life in Christ. But we must bear in mind we need to seek constant fellowship with God by the renewal of our mind as was made clear by Apostle Paul. When our desire to be holy is greater than our willingness to stay where we are, we have taken a big step toward spiritual transformation.

2 Corinthians 3:16-17 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Ephesians 4: 23-24 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

The gifting of the Holy Spirit stimulates the fruits of the Spirit that helps us in the path of transformation and we begin to have understanding of the things of God by the Spirit helping to search into all things even the deep things of God as stated in 1 Corinthians 2:10 and brings us to remembrance those things that are of God and pleasing to Him.

The process of attaining Spiritual transformation starts with the confession of sin and acceptance of Christ as our personal saviour who died as the son of God for the redemption of our sins for the purpose of reconciliation to the Father.

We must receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift to us By Jesus Christ and be submissive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit as He directs us into the things of God.

Galatians 3:27 ESV For as many as were baptised into Christ have put on Christ

We need to daily fellowship and meditation with God in Spirit and truth, for when we stay in His presence and patiently wait upon the Lord we imbibe the characteristic of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.

Renewal of the mind by daily scriptural reading taking example of Jesus reply to the tempter 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' Also in 2 Timothy 3:16 states that all scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and training in righteousness. Acts 17: 11 ……. in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

Making all supplication known God through prayers, praises and worship by the Holy Spirit. (See Romans 8:26, 28)
Take Note:

2 Corinthians 3:18 … with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

We press on personally to achieve the goal which the Lord has set before us knowing fully well that He who has started His good work within us is able to finish it through His glory in Christ Jesus. We love you but God love you most.

JUNE 2015: Make Me Know Your Counsel Abba Father

Taking counsel from those who truly fear God and have His wisdom impacted on them is key to having understanding and knowledge of what God is telling us or giving us directions about. We pray that wherever you seek such counsel that God will give you the Spirit of discernment to be able to weed out those that are not of His but only fulfilling the calling of their bellies in the anointed prospering name of Jesus Christ. Amen

BE WATCHFUL AND BE DILIGENT: Whom you seek for godly wisdom and advice

Ecclesiastes 5:1 Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil.

“Since it was customary for the king to consult experts in matters of law and justice, he spoke with the wise men who understood the times,” (Esther 1:13; NIV).

Daniel 1: 17-20 As for these four young men, God gave them Knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams……and among them all none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah;….and in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the King examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in His realm.

1 Corinthian 2:4-5 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

The world have those who they consider wise and experts in the things of the world, and the Kingdom of God have those who have godly wisdom and understand the signs of the time. As a child of God, who are you seeking directions from about the laws and precepts of God or Spiritual inspiration?

1 Corinthians 2:10-11 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

This is the time that we in the body of Christ must seek out good godly counsel. We need to seek those who demonstrate the mind of Christ as was in the days of Apostle Paul. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide us in all truth, and He will lead us to the one God has for us to direct us in what we need to do.

1 Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Be careful who you consult about the issues and decisions you face. Make sure they are God’s fearing People and not of the world. Several times the Bible draws our attention to being diligent as the wolves are disguising themselves as agent of light while propagating the agenda of Satan.

Jeremiah 5: 26 ‘For among My people are found wicked men; they lie in wait …..They set trap; they catch Men. Vv31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; and My people love to have it so

*** Bear in mind the Wolves are among the Sheep’s***

Note: Most often the Lord will speak to us via a sermon or directly by reading the word but we sometimes close our heart to the message rather we prefer offering foolish sacrifices through unholy men parading as God’s anointed. We run to ungodly people for advice because we really do not want to hear the real truth, or we do not want to be held accountable to the Word of God. We will bypass God’s ANOINTED people who have His wisdom and discernment because we would rather have our ears tickled than to be godly chastised.

2 Peter 2:3 …their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

1 Timothy 6:5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. (See Titus 1:10-11, 16, 1 Timothy 6:6 Jude 1:4, 16)

God is the ultimate expert who knows what we need to do for each situation in our lives. He has people in place for us who know His Word and can rightly divide it (2 Timothy 2:15). We should not seek worldly people about godly matters. We must seek God-fearing men and women of the Kingdom of God who hears from God, and who will tell us exactly what God is saying, no matter how it might make us feel.

2 Corinthians 2:17 For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.
In the first chapter of the book of Esther, we read about queen Vashti refusing to honour her husband request
(vv.10-12). The king became furious and asked the experts what was to be done to queen Vashti according to the law. We must seek the Lord likewise when we are making crucial decisions.


God wants us to be rich/wealthy, but mostly He wants us to be rich in the things concerning Him, Hence seek ye the Kingdom of God first and every other thing will be added. He gives sound wisdom to the upright, guards the path of justice, preserves the way of the saints and in all matters He gives ears to the supplications of the righteous.

Proverbs 15:8 The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.

In seeking God’s face over matters, because of the fixation of quick and instantaneous result we expect, we tend to fall prey to people whose purpose is to exploit our vulnerability and make demands that even to our reasonable senses are not godly, but they speak to our ears want we want to hear that we become captive of our own soul desires rather than to the prompting of the Holy Spirit within us.

Furthermore, we can equip ourselves to receiving God’s counsel by daily fellowship and devotional time with Him, spend time in His presence, read, digest and meditate on the word, fasting and praying. Most often the steps will be revealed on our heart. The heart is the battlefield of faith and believe. Apostle Paul said that once we were yet like babe and was fed as such, as we grow older we are fed with what is befitting to an adult.

Ephesian 4: 14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

May He increase us daily in His wisdom, open the eyes of our heart to have understanding and knowledge of all the goodness of His works. Amen

We love you but know that God loves you the most, therefore we leave you under His Grace, guidance, love and peace. Remain wonderfully Blessed.

MAY 2015: Make Me Know the Joy of Giving Abba Father


IMPORTANT: Paul wrote, in 2 Corinthians 9:7 that "You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. 'For God loves a person who gives cheerfully”

I started off thinking that the Lord wanted me to write about giving to others and the gift/joy of offerings but it was quickly laid on me that the Lord was pointing me to the Joy of giving ourselves as a continuous living sacrifice to Himself as every other forms of giving stems from this.

God does not required from us a half-hearted worship and conduct as mostly done by us but wants a whole-hearted worship out of a free and willing Spirit as demonstrated by Jesus Christ but in our case this does not require us to die on the cross but we should have proper understanding of His love and respond appropriately.

"For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father." (John 10:17-18)

The ultimate giving brought about the salvation we enjoy under grace today because it was done out of love and freewill and Jesus also pointed out that nobody was ever honoured for what they received but for what they gave.

This was also demonstrated by the first apostles in their attitude to spreading the words of Christ in the early days, most died similar death for their service and belief. This similarity was why Apostle Peter requested that he be crucified differently and their selfless and love of God has added to the foundation of Christ.

Christianity is the deep rooted love we have for Christ and God through the Holy Spirit which causes us to follow in the footstep of Christ and love one another. Richard Braunstein said “It is possible to give without loving, but it is impossible to love without giving”. In order words love prompts us to appreciate and giving then is not duty bound.

John 3:16-17 (EIV) For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.…”

The love of God in Abraham’s Heart caused his willingness in Genesis 22:2 to give, Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, whom you love--Isaac--and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you." What Abraham appreciated and have understanding of was the supremacy of God which caused him not to be doubtfully of His faithfulness. The singular act of obedience and preparedness counted him righteous before God who changed the sacrifice to Ram.

Giving our whole-hearted worship from a pure and genuine heart means we know, love and appreciates His existence in our lives and as such there cannot be any limit to the sacrifice’s we bring to the Altar of service. In Romans 12: 1 Paul says “I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.”

Presenting a reasonable service entails that we remain righteous and abstain from sinful lust as Roman 6: 12-13 stated, this can easily be achieve if we allow the Spirit of God to dwell in us and lead and guide us into the prefect love of Christ. (Read also Romans 8:11-14)

Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: “Charity is the bond of perfection (Colossians 3:14);” and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God’s: “The principal effect of love is so to unite the wills of those who love each other as to make them will the same things” It follows then, that the more one unites his will with the divine will, the greater will be his love of God.

Selfless service must be demonstrated from the principal leaders as examples unto others to follow, this was fully demonstrated by Apostle Paul through his constant teaching of Christ the risen Son of God in very unusual circumstances.

Being a living sacrifice means that we abstain from the lust of the eyes and pride of life and renew our mind constantly in the word of God to transform us. We must seek to hear the word as in Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Reading is essential (Revelation 1:3).

Acts 17:11 ….. in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

We must commit to memory as in Psalms 119: 9-11 implores and constantly mediate on these words as stated in Psalm 1:2 to produces fruitfully at due seasons as stated in verse 3.When we know the love of God, we will sought to fellowship in truth and Spirit for those that will worship Him must do so as in John 4:23-24.

The Holy Spirit that dwells within us is the source that we can rely on to show us the joy of living in God’s presence, it is all we need to be made complete, thoroughly equipped for every good works. The love we have will prompt us constantly to seek to find out what His will is and what He approves.

When we truly believe in God and have understanding of His awesomeness, we will be eager to make ourselves as a living sacrifice to experience the joy of true fellowship. When we are able to offer the most meaningful offering to God, we would be able to give out of a free and willing heart.

What is required as Christian is that we offer our service to God out of our freewill and in obedience to His commandment. If we proclaim God’s love and we respond in love, we will actively give our service graciously as a lover would give to his/her new found heartthrob and find joy in seeing Him/her every time and have pleasure in doing the things that are pleasing in their sight. Giving out of love has two hidden reward that which is attached to the love and the other is to the giving. Giving out of freewill bring about an unusual blessing as the gift given has not been requested by the receiver.

Now: We pray the Lord almighty who has counted us worthy to love us first will give us the grace to love Him with all our heart, body, soul and Spirit and in the same light give us the fortitude to love our neighbour as ourselves in the mighty prospering and anointed name of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. Amen

May our daily giving of ourselves as a living sacrifice come up to him as a sweet smelling aroma and cause Him to have joy in us has He had for Christ our saviour. Amen

May He increase us daily in His wisdom, open the eyes of our heart to have understanding and knowledge of all the goodness of His works. Amen

We love you but that God loves you the most, so we leave you+ under His Grace guidance love and peace. Have a blessed month and a fruitful year.

Fatherhood and Family- God’s Disposition

Woke up this morning to realise that God loves Family and if we are not living like a family, we are just not living God’s destiny.
The love of family unity was so important to the coming of Christ that Joseph was appointed the Father on earth. (Matthew 1:20-21)
When love and unity is in the home it equates to the peace of God.

Fathers have a special role that includes being sensitive to their wife and children.
Fathers needs to demonstrate patience, understanding, and exhibit wisdom of God as used by Joseph in faith.
Fathers need to deal with emotions of the family with a lot of tolerance.

(See Ephesians 5:25-33;Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4;Proverbs 23:24;Colossians 3:21)

***Listening is key and responding with the right attitude is Important***

Wife needs to remain sensitive to the emotions of the Father, aligning their thoughts and energy to the uplifting of their husband and inheritance. A Good wife makes her home a place of joy and happiness. (Proverb 31: 10-31)

Keep the love flowing at home and you are definitely in the right frame of mind to deal with the outside.

Marriage and raising a family is a lifetime learning process and staying the course is a lifetime achievement.

Do not bail out too soon, for the reward is the fulfilment of God’s plan to uplift you.

Prayer

May the God give you the grace to be who he wants you to be and grant peace, joy and happiness into your relationship. May the grant you patience to stay the course and reap the benefit of family-hood to His glory and honour.
