When it comes to the anointing, play it safe. What do you mean you may ask. Every born again person is the Israel of God, joint heir with Christ, either they have the office or not!!!
David was anointed yet was pursued by King Saul, the anointed of God, yet David sinned not against the Lord’s anointed!
Have regard for every child of God, actually, every human, for you do not know who is backing them!
Trust me, it will save us from presumptuous sin.
Lord God Almighty, have mercy on me and my friends. Forgive us for disrespecting the anointing on your anointed, and within us. Help us to be conscious of who’s we are, and who lives within us at all times in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen
Let the wicked forsake their evil ways The Word says in Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
Proverbs 11:21 Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free.
The Church of God stated in The Destiny of The Wicked thus:
“”The Bible also teaches that there will be degrees of punishment. Paul says that in the day of judgment God will “render to every man according to his deeds” (Rom. 2:6). Men become doubly responsible by the light which they receive. Jesus says, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin” (John 15:22). “That sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful” (Rom. 7:13). Christ said to Pilate, “He that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin” (John 19:11).
Since our sins are estimated in accordance with the light received, our punishment also will be regulated accordingly. For this reason Peter says concerning backsliders, “It had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment” (II Pet. 2:21). “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.… Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God?” (Heb. 10:26, 29). The greater the light and knowledge possessed, the greater the responsibility. (See Matt. 11:20-24; 23:14.)
From the foregoing texts we see that men will be rewarded “according to their works,” that some will receive a “sorer punishment” and “greater damnation” than others, and that it will be “more tolerable” for some people than it will be for others. But all these degrees will be in accordance with the light received and rejected.””
Think of if friends, is it really worth it? A pot of porridge for your glorious destiny like Esau? Thirst and demand for adulation of Haman brought him humiliation and death. Will you quit striving with your maker and yield your heart in obedience wholeheartedly unto the Lord?
Forsake your evil ways, purge wickedness from within you and seek the Lord while He may be found. Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Salvation, genuine repentance is freely given to you today. At no cost to you friends, think about this. for wickedness cost you your life eternity unending. Think about this and repent today.
Jesus loves you!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Are you afraid of not accomplishing what you are created to accomplish? Quit being afraid!! Work out your faith.
“Your calling and divine destiny as well as your present spiritual build up adds up in determining the kind of battles that will come your way. When you consider David, you will observe the kind of opponents that he faced – a lion, bear and Goliath – 1 Samuel 17:34-37.
If you consider your life, you will realise that God has brought you this far because His purpose for your life is yet to be fulfilled.
The Lord that has kept you alive will continue to keep you.
You cannot rely on anybody other than yourself and God when it comes to the issues of making heaven – accomplishing and fulfilling your purpose.”
Pastor E. A. Adeboye 2013
Ephesians 1: 17 -21 Oh Lord, I pray that you will give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I may know you better. I pray that you will allow the eyes of my heart be enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which you have called me and the riches of your glorious inheritance in your holy people and your incomparable great power for us all who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength you exerted when you raised Christ Jesus from the dead and seated Him at your right hand in the heavenly realms far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked not only in the present age but also in the one to come. In Christ Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
Well, friends, the Lord has saved us from the wrath to come and given us liberty. He made His grace sufficient for us! Thank God!!
Whatever you have been given will be required of it! What have you done with what you have been given? Your health, wealth, position, personality, beauty, pain, gifts, disappointment, your talent, disposition and all? They are meant for something. The Lord is a master planner! He gave you all for a purpose. What you do with it is yours to decide!
I have enjoyed good health, I have also had some health scares, but all in all, I have been healthy. I must have taken this for granted for I suddenly realize that with food, I have no dos and don’t. Oh yes! I took the liberty and do not discriminate at all. I mean, I eat whatever my heart desires😀😀.
Then, I found out that it takess extra grace sometime to get the leftover, the unused part out of the body. Have you ever had to pray and ask for help with this regard?
Free will sometimes needs control. I also realize that it is very easy to abuse this free will, the grace bestowed on us. Note though, much will be required of you!!!
Abba Father, thank you for your grace upon us. Lord, forgive us for taking this grace for granted. Forgive us for abusing our health, the extra pounds we have packed on indiscriminately that could hinder us from actively living for your glory. Forgive us for abusing all that you have freely given to us in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
Help us Lord to control our appetite in every which way, that your name alone may be glorify in us always. Thank you Abba Father for we pray and receive answers in Jesus Christ mighty name.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
2 Samuel 14:1 Joab son of Zeruiah knew that the king’s heart longed for Absalom.2 So Joab sent someone to Tekoa and had a wise woman brought from there. He said to her, “Pretend you are in mourning. Dress in mourning clothes, and don’t use any cosmetic lotions. Act like a woman who has spent many days grieving for the dead. 3 Then go to the king and speak these words to him.” And Joab put the words in her mouth.;
The craftiness of Man!!! Joab understood how hurt the King was with the death of a son, the defilement of a daughter and self banishment of another son. The force of darkness came to kill, steal, and destroy. It all started with a thought in the heart of man, an inordinate affection unchecked, unrestrained. – 2 Samuel 13:2.
Yet, Joab, not been a sycophant, knew the right thing was for the King to bring back the Prince, hence the craftiness of his action to employ a wise woman to indirectly speak to King David. The King would not have listened otherwise and his compassionate heart was indirectly spoken to.
Who is speaking to your mind? What are you hearing and seeing? What is all around you? Are you aware what you hear and see affect ultimately your thought, words and action? Be conscious of what you feed your soul? Anyone who has your ears has your heart. Be cautious!!
Guard your heart, for out of it flows issues of life – Proverb 4:23
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
1 Samuel 31:4 Saul said to his armor-bearer, “Draw your sword and run me through,or these uncircumcised fellows will come and run me through and abuse me.” But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it. 5 When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died with him. 6 So Saul and his three sons and his armor-bearer and all his men died together that same day.
Hope against hope! When everything seems to be against you, keep hope alive. Be hopeful and fear the Lord. This armor bearer must have thought a miracle can still happen. My Lord the King may still live after all, so he refused to run Saul through and instead ran himself through afterwards.
Then comes a sycophant on the scene, ill intention-ed, cold and lacking human feelings and respect for the dead, bent on currying favor from David. He misunderstood David! He thought David was like most men, he was ignorant of the divine mandate and heart God placed in this multifaceted instrument in God’s hand.
2 Samuel 1:15 Then David called one of his men and said, “Go, strike him down!” So he struck him down, and he died. 16 For David had said to him, “Your blood be on your own head. Your own mouth testified against you when you said, ‘I killed the Lord’s anointed.’”
This Amalekite had condemned himself to death by the words of his own mouth. How often, in pursuit of the transient have we lost the divine and immortal? To gain supposed honor and prestige, he claimed to be what he is not.
2 Samuel 1:6 “I happened to be on Mount Gilboa,” the young man said, “and there was Saul, leaning on his spear, with the chariots and their drivers in hot pursuit. 7 When he turned around and saw me, he called out to me, and I said, ‘What can I do?’ 8 “He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ “‘An Amalekite,’ I answered. 9 “Then he said to me, ‘Stand here by me and kill me! I’ m in the throes of death, but I’m still alive.’ 10 “So I stood beside him and killed him, because I knew that after he had fallen he could not survive. And I took the crown that was on his head and the band on his arm and have brought them here to my lord.”
Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
It was swift for this young man, but not so for many. Sometimes the word of twenty years ago may still be haunting now. Every such words Lord let your blood stand against it. May every words spoken contrary to our God given destiny be destroy by the blood of Jesus today in Jesus name. Every words of accusation, condemnation, and persecution spoken by us and others against your will for us Lord let it be cancelled and destroyed today in Jesus mighty name. Amen
“Iyan ogun odun a ma jo ni lowo” Simply means Proverbs 12:14, 18:20 Mercy Lord!!!!!
Ephesians 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
