Faith in the Word

John 1:1 In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him, nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The Word created everything that has been created and will be created. Everything that is came out and is coming out of that which was created in the beginning. Everything created, every element, stars, the moon, sun, plant, animals everything must of necessity cooperate with your God given destiny. It is written that all things work well for the good of those whose trust is in the Lord (Romans 8:28). You are not your own, to God you belong, therefore, all creation, experiences, occurrence are and will work together for your good.

Speak the Word to create your world.
Speak the Word to create your world.

Everything that was and will ever be, came into been by the Word, which was with God, was made flesh, dwells among us, died for your sins, redeeming you from the curse of the Law (John 1:1-5). This means then, that in the coven of witches, wizard, occult, and wickedness, whatever is been conjured, put together or spoken against you, having been originally created by God through Jesus Christ, will not work against you. As a believer, Holy Spirit filled and abiding in the word, Christ dwells in you by the Holy Spirit, therefore, the weapon of wickedness will not prosper in your life and destiny.

All creation, all element must cooperate with your destiny, which is in Christ Jesus. For you were crucified with Christ Jesus, nevertheless, you live, yet not you that lives, but Christ that lives in you. The life that you live now, you live by faith in the son of God, who loved you and gave himself for you (Galatians 2:20).

Nothing put together, spoken or pronounced against you and yours by the wicked one will prosper in Jesus mighty name. You have to rise up and condemn every tongue that rises up in judgement over you and yours, this is your heritage in Christ Jesus (Isaiah 54:17) You have been blessed by the Most High God, Almighty, all knowing, only wise God. You cannot be cursed. Every evil pronouncement against the plan and purpose of God for your life shall not stand.

2 Corinthians 1: 20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. 21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Samson – The Anointed, Great, and Mighty.

Judges 16: 1- end.  The Story of Samson

Lean not on your own understanding.... Trust God.
Lean not on your own understanding…. Trust God.

God had spoken to his mother before his conception. God also revealed Himself to both parent, instructing them how to care for this anointed child. Samson was anointed from the womb, yet he grew up doing everything contrary to the commandments of God. Sexual immorality was his undoing. It cost Samson his eyes and life ultimately. He lost touch with the Holy Spirit of the living God that had been abiding in him even before he was born.

Samson did achieve the purpose for which he was born, which was to destroy the very fabric of the Philistines power and dominion over Israel – God’s own possession. He destroyed the Lord’s enemy – Israel’s cruel oppressor.

Oh Samson! Samson! He would have still destroyed Philistines power and rule over Israel and lived, had he not an insatiable desires for strange women.

You see, friends, there will always be something, issues, desires contending for our life and destiny. God has great, wonderful, and beautiful plan for His children. The wicked one also has plans to kill, steal and destroy. Therefore, there is conflict from within and without. Even after salvation, believers still struggle to stand in the Word in righteousness because of the demand of the flesh over the mind.

In the case of Samson, it was women – beautiful women. In our case, there are many – handsome men, power, money, anger, pride, greed, envy, gluttony, hatred, gossip, snitching, backbiting, loose tongue, controlling others free will by all means and so on. These can, and is capable of pushing us out of God’s plan and purpose for our existence.

Friends, will you join me in sober reflection, to identify the sins that easily befalls, and take it to God in prayer. Put a system in place by the Holy Spirit so that you will not trip – fall or fail in your walk in the Spirit. It is do-able friends, we have a great and loving advocate in Jesus Christ who is daily interceding for us (I John 2:1,John 14: 16 and 26). Ministering Spirits are released when we pray to God from our heart to help and assist us in this walk of destiny (Hebrew 1:14).

The bible says, without holiness no one shall see God (Hebrew 12:14). We have the Holy Spirit to help us, we have provision, we are not stranded, nor left as orphans to navigate the treacherous path of life. Let us therefore, hold unto our confession of faith, praying earnestly that we will not be deceived by the deceitfulness of  sin and the transient glitter of this present world.

Repent therefore and be cleansed, renewed, restored, rejuvenated, and elevated to a position from which you and I are able to offer acceptable sacrifice, service, worship, and praise to the Most High God, King Eternal, Only Wise God, All Sufficient and All Encompassing God world without end. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Faith – Power – Dominion

Authority over all creation
Authority over all creation

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. Luke 4:20

Which power? The power of the Holy Spirit which is made available only to those who have experienced a genuine repentance and are abiding in The Word.

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you (and I) have been brought to fullness. He (Christ Jesus ) is the head over EVERY power and authority. Colossian 2:9-10.

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10 : 19

Friends exercise that authority over the situation around you today. Be bold and stand with courage today. Every other force is counterfeit, holds no water. Exercise your dominion mandate in faith knowing that God will back you up with signs and wonder.

Stay calm in His presence. You are covered by The Blood of Jesus Christ.

Faith – A Prayer of David

The expanse of God's greatness and love.
The expanse of God’s greatness and love.

Psalms 17: 1-9

1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer— it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.
3 Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed.
4 Though people tried to bribe me,I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.
5 My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled.
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me.

Through you Oh Lord my heart sings I am free

I am free to love, live, ……………….

I am free to live for you Lord

I know the Son has set me free

I am free to be who you Lord created me to be –

A shinning light of love that shatters every form of darkness

Hallelujah! Amen. 

Faith – Calling and Election

2 Peter 1 New International Version

“1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ.To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Confirming One’s Calling and Election

3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble,11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.

Self-control in relation to sex on my mind friends.

Yes sex! The forbidden word, softly spoken, blatantly displayed and erroneously labelled on another.  You see friends, we often and always condemn others for that thing which we ourselves most fear in ourselves. If tables are turned will you be standing still? Will I? Am I? It takes a lot of grace, praise God!

Beautiful Gift of Utmost Satisfaction
Beautiful Gift of Utmost Satisfaction!

Sex sells and will always sell. We all need, crave, imagine if you will and demand it. We’ve all been there ( for those who have retired?) and are still there as long as we are in this part of eternity. It is a natural, physiological experience like eating. Every human eat and crave for food. Sex is in that category, however like food too much and indiscipline has consequence. Sex is also a spiritual experience, its a union of two souls, it is sacred. Outside of the context of marriage it is a sin, short lived pleasure, feeling of regret and a defilement of God’s temple. Within the context of marriage, it is a very beautiful experience. Hmm reminiscing!!!!! It’s pleasing, whole and complete. All said and done there is need to exercise self-control as stipulated in the word of God in 2 Peter 1- end. We have been redeemed and translated to the Kingdom of God with all fleshly lust in complete remission. Shouldn’t it be left there?  Matthew 4:4 Jesus having fasted for 40 days and night the tempter came and asked him to turn stone into bread and Jesus answered, “It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Friends, don’t allow sex to dominate your thinking, ‘cos it will ruin it. Avoid sexual triggers – we all have it and are different from one another. Avoid situation that places you in a compromising state, most of all flee from all appearances of evil. For my very young adult, stop sex testing – it pollute your mind and ultimately lead to “It”.

Sex appeal sells in the world we live in now, but should it be in the Kingdom? Look out for more on this topic.

Courage! Limitless Access!

Joshua 17:1 – end

The tribe of Joseph – Ephraim and Manasseh got two slot- inheritance from the Lord unlike the remaining tribes of Israel.

boundless opportunityThey however, complained to Joshua that they need more land. Joshua asked them to clear more land in the forest as many as they want. In verse 17 & 18 Joshua said ” You are numerous and very powerful. You will have not only one allotment but the forested hill country as well. Clear it, and its farthest limits will be yours; though the Canaanites have chariots fitted with iron and though they are strong, you can drive them out.

Josephs descendants, though already favored requested for more and Joshua’s answer is insightful and encouraging.  Joshua basically said unlimited access to land is available – unlimited access to whatever you are craving for, as long as its in line with the Word of God and heaven’s plan for you. Unlimited provision is available, you just need courage to access it regardless of how the provision is packaged. You must be hungry and thirsty enough to embark on this daunting exposition – laying hold of destiny.

There is sweetness – juicy thirst quencher in coconut by the beach side but it has to be cracked open. To possess a land or anything whatsoever that is needful for life and godliness then, there is a need to know how to fight strategically to uproot every obstacle and threat  to God’s plan and purpose for your life.

You can uproot every enemy of progress within and without by the help of the Holy Spirit already at work within you. Within? Why not without? You have to and must be born again, accept the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior in order to have access to the Holy Spirit. Will you invite Jesus into your heart now friends?. The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth, strengthen and encourage you as you step out in faith to possess your possession.

Prayer:

Lord God Almighty, help us to trust you to work everything out for our good as we strategically and faithfully step toward, forward, and into your plan and purpose for our life’s in Jesus mighty name. Amen
