Your Aches Is Profit

Just a friendly reminder!

Do not let anyone profit out of your fear, aches, pain, hurt, bondage, and so on! Believe it or not your heartaches is profiting someone! You have to let it go tonight. Let everything that has held you bound go with this season. Its a new day in the morning. Make the best of it!

I was listening to T. D. Jakes “Woman! Thou Hath Loosed” again and felt I should remind someone about it. Your bondage to sin, fear, low self esteem, trauma, and so on is profiting someone and they don’t want you to be loosed. Someone is laying that bed of “not enough”,not worthy”, “still broken”, “poverty stricken” etc so nicely and comfortably looking to entice you and keep you in perpetual bondage. Don’t take the bait!

You have been set free from fear, pain, aches, sickness, lack, trauma, and whatsoever it is that has plagued you! Declare this, ” I am set free by the blood of Jesus – Revelation 12:11″ I am a new creation, old things are gone, I am brand new” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Acts 16:16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by .fortune-telling. 17 This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” 18 And this she did for many days.

But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.

This slave girl under bondage of divination was profiting her master so immensely that when this evil spirit was sent away by Paul, he had to lie about Paul and Silas to get him out of the way – Acts 16:16-24. The wicked ain’t playing, you must not be slack with your destiny!

You must resist the devil and it will flee. Hold unto God’s word for your life. The Scriptures says him/her whom the Son of God has set free is free indeed – John 8:36. Do not subject yourself to bondage again this new year. Take charge of destiny.

Shalom! Shalom!

Watchmen? Speak Clearly!

Ezekiel 33:7 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. 

Friends, you and I are watchmen. If you see something wrong been perpetrated and you do not speak up against it, you are liable. There is danger in not sounding the alarm now more than ever. Read Ezekiel 33:1-6! Most especially telling the world about Salvation, the gift of Christ Jesus for as many as will accept it. This is the Great Commission!

You have been commissioned as a watchman to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all flesh , baptising them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for the remission of sins – Matthew 28:19.

Often, we lay emphasis on Mark 16:17-18 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

We neglect Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 

As we walk majestically into this next newness, let us resolve to tell as many people as possible about the gift of Salvation that is ours, its freely given, gladly received, eternally worthy! It can be theirs also.

Shalom!

Be Onguard! Words Can Kill!

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Covid 19 has revealed beyond a doubt the evil intention and wickedness of man, the thought of the heart, how murderous it can be.

Revelation 12:15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.

We have seen and heard of those with slight provocation or even without any, intentionally spitting on the face of others, knowing fully well they could be spewing the virus on a more vulnerable person.

We have heard of victims that died as a result of such encounter with the new weapon of mass destruction, a killer, a super spreader, a carrier infected with Covid 19 spitting virus over them.

I wonder if you ever thought of people speaking evil into the lives of others as evil, killers of lives and destinies! The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21.

Many on a whim spew out curses like rain, pouring out words from the deep seated wickedness, insecurity, pain and hurt in their soul on unsuspecting vessels. Matthew 12:35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

Others go around dropping venom on every surface, any ears that is accessible, for the detriment of many forgetting that we all will be judged by every careless and evil words we spew out. Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

Therefore, be careful of that which you feed your soul with as we prepare to walk into this new door of a new year that God in His infinite mercy is opening to and for you and I. Mark 4:24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued.

Be watchful, stay awake, pay attention, stay conscious of what you hear! Does it bring fear? Doubt? Demean you? Exalt Satan and his agent over Christ Jesus? Does it exalt any human in place of God? Does it convict you of your sins? Does it encourages the good in you? Does it inspire you to live a life that is worthy of your precious salvation? Does it glorify mammon? Does it make excuses for your life of sin? The words you hear and feed yourself on friends, does it strip you of human dignity?

We need to remind ourselves that God spoke the world into being! Words are powerful! Any avenue from which words are spoken to demean, discourage, abuse, and degrade you as a human being is not of God.

The whole purpose of the devil is to strip you naked of the Radiance of God’s Glory, he want to strip you of your identity as a child of God so he can rule over you as god! Satan will take over your mind, your free will subtly with the words he speaks to you. He is a master manipulator, a liar and a good orator! Read the temptation of Jesus Christ in the Books of the Gospels. You must resist the devil and counter his lies with The Word of God today as in this new year!

Flee from every appearances of evil1 Thessalonians 5:22. Don’t feed your soul with poison! It will kill ya! Feed your soul with the word of truth. Read the Bible and books that build you up. Edify yourself and others with the scriptures this new year. It shall be well with you and all that is yours in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom!

Blessed Overcomer!

Friends, test and trials transforms us

It builds faith in us, and strengthen Us

Yesterday’s trial is today’s testimony

Today’s trial is tomorrows testimony

Blessed are those that overcomes adversity

Revelations 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

The Lord is ever faithful, ever constant, and always present. He guides you always. Lean on Him!

We Overcame! You And I!

We overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony – Revelation 12:11.

Friends, some of you are taking stock of this year by days, weeks, and months, for me it has been a decade long. Times and seasons are constant, but you and I, experience it all differently, seasons and times happens to us all differently.

I took stock of the last decade. I am so thankful that I can look back and say thank you Jesus! The Lord was my strength, my all in all, the pillar that holds my life, my shield and high tower that kept me safe and sane.

Thank you Lord for the storms that could not sweep me away, the fire that could not kindle upon me, the pit that could not contain me, the voices that could not prevail over me. And the schemes of the wicked that you Lord frustrated! I bet you also have thanks to give. Go ahead and praise God!

Thank you Savior for the near misses, the broken heart that you healed, the blind eyes that you gave sight, deaf ears that you opened, and the hardened heart that your love turned around and changed to be a heart of flesh.

Knowing the Lord intimately is different from knowing God by what someone says. You need to experience God for yourself! He is near thee! Psalms 145:18

I look back and I am thankful for overcoming all the wiles of the wicked. It is a privilege to be here, looking forward to the glorious next chapter as it unfolds beautifully. I see glorious spectacles like crescendo.

If you can relate in anyway, listen to the lyrics of this music and know that it was, and it is Christ in you and I giving us victory by His blood! We ought to give Him praise like never before in truth and in spirit. The Lord our God is worthy of all praises. Psalms 145:3

Whatever is ahead, your victory is guaranteed in Christ Jesus. You are an overcomer by the blood of Jesus!

Be optimistic of the future friends, it shall be full of wonderful pleasure! You will experience the Lord like never before. You need to stay awake and aware in your spirit man this new months, and years ahead.

Shalom!

This Glory! God’s Glory!

The scriptures says the glory of the latter shall be greater than the former. Haggai 2:9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”

The Scriptures also said that we, believers, are the temple of the living God. 1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? It explains in many ways that God lives in Us by His Holy Spirit. And by virtue of the fact that God breathe into the clay He formed even back then- Genesis 2:7, every living human has the glory of God in him. We are sons of God!

I want to establish for you that you have and carry glory. In every stage of your being, you carry glory. Don’t you dare let another human tell you that you do not have glory or that it is shame that is trailing you. Look intently at anyone saying that and say get behind me Satan. That voice is from the pit of hell!

You cannot be a human being without glory! It is the glory, the breathe of the Almighty that makes us different from animals. We all carry GLORY!

See, I grew up in royalty on both side of my family. My mum is from royalty on both side also. On my mother side, I knew the late Ooni Adesoji Aderemi as a little girl. My great grandmother and the Queen were siblings. They both lived long and told story of how they were princesses from Oyo and so on. Both sisters passed on in the 1990s. Ooni’s first child, Aunty Awujo as my mum used to called her, was very close to my mum. My mum is late, but she is still living. On my Father side same story. The family’s progenitor was so powerful that every other Chief and the King in the Kingdom paid homage to him. The respect is still there for The Sora Family today.

Why am I saying all this? Growing up in such an environment, knowing who my ancestors were, unconsciously makes me exude an aura of some sort. I walk like I own the land I have been told many times. There is a glory, a gait in my steps, an aura, that many may have misinterpreted or misunderstood. Knowing who you are exude a knowing, albeit unconsciously regardless of whatever circumstances or situation you are in. I am all the way here in North America where no one knows who all these people were, and frankly who cares? Upbringing, values, and beliefs makes me to carry myself differently.

For someone like me, being star struck is out of the question. I was raised to speak my mind, be bold, respectful, truthful, just, and kind. I celebrate everyone equally as a being, either poor or rich, and to treat anyone in a condescending way because of any erroneous criteria or faulty perception is most repulsive to me. My father was one of those that studied in England in the fifties, and he was a well cultured man who raised us well.

As believers, knowing who we were before the foundation of the earth was laid, and who we are today in Christ Jesus will help us to debunk the lies of the devil. There are many lies flowing around from different avenues that if you do not know who you are, you will be swept under, deceived into being less than you are capable of being.

Joseph knew who he was, he had seen dreams of what his destiny entails. He became a slave in Egypt, yet his glory was evident to Mr Potiphar, Mrs Potiphar, and even to the jailers. You may not have royal blood in you, however you have the blood lineage of Jesus Christ, you are a seed of Abraham, God’s friend. You were purchase with a price. The blood of Jesus was shed for you! Menh, let no one tell you , you carry no glory. I see glory all over you! You hear me? You have glory and honor all over you. Believe this for it is The Truth.

Shalom!

Gossiping is Murder

Let each of us be honest here. We all have engaged in gossiping. But did you know how deadly it is? I be the first to say that I use to gossip, I never saw anything wrong with it. Until one day the Lord showed me just how deadly it is. Today I will share […]

Gossiping is Murder

Called Out! Chaos!

Job 14:15 You will call and I will answer you; you will long for the creature your hands have made.16 Surely then you will count my steps but not keep track of my sin. 17 My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin.

I bet you have not seen half of what Brother Job saw, and I pray you and I will never ever see it. He was tempted beyond human understanding, yet by grace he stood in faith, unwavering!

Photo by ALLAN FRANCA CARMO on Pexels.com

So therefore, if the Lord called Job back from the realm of total chaos as was recorded in the scriptures, God will call you out of that dunghill. I mean, He is calling you out now, this very moment.

The Lord remembered His love for you today, He has been watching over your every step anyways. God is not and will not keep track of your many sins. He packed them all and sealed it with the blood of Jesus Christ and sent it off to the land of forgetfulness.

Don’t you dare allow the enemy and those that are threatened by your wakefulness from slumber talk you down to the emotion of guilt, unworthiness, and fear.

You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus – 2 Corinthians 5:21! Say that to the Devil’s face!

Shalom!

Are You Alive? Reflecting Christ?

What are you known for? What reputation do you have? Whatever reputation you might have, whatever you are known for, if you are asleep spiritually, you are dead.

You might have been a believer, a priest, pastor or what not for 40years, if you are insensitive to the need of the souls around you, the need of salvation and care which invariably is the desires of God, you are but a dead corpse. Jesus Christ was very much in touch with reality, He was intune with the spiritual and physical need of the people all through scriptures.

God is calling us all to wake up from our selfish ambitions to the need of the greater good! Just think for yourself for once, examine yourself, do you see Christ in yourself? Any of Christ person reflecting in your character?

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

I mean, are you a kind person, generous, empathetic, selfless, truthful, humble, passionate about making sure others are comfortable and cared for? Or is it all about you wielding control over, and dominating others?

The message for you and I is “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. Revelation 3:3″ We must shake ourselves loose from the sin that easily beset us. We must strengthen, fan up the flame of the Holy Ghost within. For our hearts is becoming seared. Hearts are dying while still breathing! I can’t begin to mention things, acts, that some believers engage in! Even unbelievers are too principled to go that low!

These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. 4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. 6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3: 1-6

You and I must not step into a new decade with old beliefs, ideas, and behaviors that has not served us well with the things that are of eternal value. They might have obtained for us admiration, accolades, and recognition, some $$ in our personal accounts etc. But all these! Do they have eternal worth?

You know yourself that, it is only that which is done for others on behalf of God Almighty that has significance!

Therefore, we must uproot, and overhaul every limiting beliefs and way of life! We must take hold of truth, love, and humility for this next phase/decade! It will serve us more!

Shalom!
