Never Entertain Fear

Fear is a killer. Fear is a destroyer of destinies. Fear is the stealer of good fortune. Fear is a time waster! Fear is one of the tools in the arsenal of Satan. Fear is what principalities and powers use to keep you away from your God given destiny. Fear is what the agent of darkness uses to keep you in perpetual mediocrity. Fear is what oppressors use to keep you subservient to their whims. Fear must never be embraced! Fear must be resisted, and put in its place. Resist and it will flee from you -James 4-7 !

Fear steals your backbone.

There is provision for you and I in 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. We have an assurance every single day to pick one fear not off of our clothing rack every single day plus 1 extra. We must wear fear not as an armour to deflect ever arrow of fear shot at us. Many Bible schoolers have confirmed that there is 366 “Fear Not” in the Book of Life. Pick one up daily!

Fear is what makes you to know the truth yet keep quiet about it. Fear is what makes you to stay silent in the face of injustice, racism, fascism, and every kind of evil towards others. Fear immobilizes you, and erodes your will power. Fear makes you to be less of yourself. Fear is what makes you to sit when you ought to stand! Fear steals your backbone.

To conquer fear, you must look it in the face without blinking. You must face your fears, analyse it, and come up with strategies to confront it. With fear, you must not take a break enforcing your right. Just a leeway is all it need to control you! Be consciously aware of what is real, what is presenting itself to you as reality, and what the true presenting situation is. Be proactive in confronting your fears

How very little can be done under the spirit of fear. Florence Nightingale, 1820-1910 – English Statistician

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. ONLY I WILL REMAIN. Frank Herbert – 1920-1986 – American Writer

Confront your fear, give it no room, put it where it belongs so you can soar on eagles wings. You are capable of flying friends, let no fear keep you bound!

Shalom!

In Touch

Get Intouch With Your Humanity

In our own world, in our own safe space, we tend to lose touch with reality.

The suffering of others we begin to explain away, and gradually, we lose touch with our humanity.

See, you cannot really intercede for me if you are not touched by my infirmity.

Neither can you pray for me if you do not love me.

Find ways to care for someone outside of your immediate family.

I implore you friends to reconnect with your humanity! Look your neighbor in the eyes, and ask how are you, mean it by waiting for the answer!

Let’s find ways to be an extension of love!

Let me know any step you will take in your own little way.

DM me, let’s start the conversation.

Shalom!

Let The Healing Begin

May your ears be open to hear good news.

Words! Words! Words can make or mar! What kind of words are you using to describe yourself? What words are you saying to yourself? What kind of words are you permitting in your space?

You must know by now that words have power to transform. Words can heal, and it can also wound.

Therefore, speak words of correction with love and understanding.

Speak truth, speak life, affirm, praise, instruct, and most importantly, decree and declare blessings along your path!

The Words that I speak, they are spirit, and they are life. Read John 6:63-70

Shalom

He Loves You First

The devil created nothing except chaos. He created no being!. The creator is the Most High God, the Almighty, All, Knowing, All Seeing God. And He created YOU

Therefore, in reaching out to the world, I must let them know of this fact. The Almighty created everyone, and there’s NONE too far lost that cannot be saved. You belong to God already. Psalms 24:1 He is willing to bring you home where love reside.

I mean, until you and I, as Christians stand and speak from this premise, the love of God cannot be shed abroad in our hearts. Romans 5:5.

I know God loves me despite and inspite of me, and he loves me before I acknowledged Him as Lord. God made me fall in love with Him. I love Him now because He first loved me. 1 John 4:19

Like a parent loves their babies, cares, and nurture them, so God has been caring for you.

I need someone to know that you are unconditionally loved by God. You only need to acknowledge His love right now.

Friends, acknowledge God’s love for you. That situation could have been worst you know?

God’s love saved you, made a way of escape, healed you, encouraged you, gave you hope and is preserving you this moment, making room for you to acknowledge Him. Don’t let this moment pass by.

Speak to Jesus from your heart. Ask Him to help you to see Him as He is. Romans 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith, your believe in Jesus that you are saved.

As many as received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe in His name; John 1:12

Praise God

You Belong To God

Maybe you don’t know this, or you do not understanding it.

Friends, this verse says “You”, whatever your name, sex, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social status, or whatever criteria is used to categorize You! You belong to God!

YOU BELONG To GOD! YOU DO! Really!

Accept it or reject it! You belong to God. Psalms 24:1
#AccepttheloveofGodforYou

Shalom

Understanding Birth Confidence

We must learn to read scriptures with understanding, by the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

It is this understanding that can help us to see that the words we read is meant for us. You and I will be able to appropriate scriptures to ourselves, our situation, and that of others and the world at large.

I am God’s little girl. My Father cares for me very much. Joan

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

I, Joan, God’s little girl, I am from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in me is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

An example of me reading 1 John 4:4 this way and meditating on it build up my inner man. Place your name where mine is and read it aloud. Repeat a couple of times. How do you feel?

When you read scriptures with understanding by the help of the Holy Spirit that gives understanding, you will begin to really have confidence in the one who saved you, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Only powerful, All Knowing, All Seeing, All sufficient God!

Shalom

Burden, Confession, Healing

Confessions is tied to healings. It’s God’s word, God’s way! Obey!

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

Is anyone still obeying this scriptures? Not so much I guess!

There are not many that can be trusted to keep confidential conversation secrets including ministers of the gospel! There’s so much lack of ethics and integrity in the institution! You end up hearing your matter from the pulpit!

Friends, May the Lord guide you to a godly burden bearer. It could be anyone, a total stranger could be what a friend of many years can’t be! Be led by the Spirit!

Shalom!

Rebuilding Through The Word of God

Society needs to be rebuilt from God’s Word.

Excerpt from Dr Jonathan Murphy’s Sermon on
Rebuilding Through The Word – Nehemiah 8:1-12

Here we are taken back to basics. As believers we need the essentials from the book of life, the word of God to survive and to rebuild.

6 Essentials To Survive As A Believer

1. Believers must gather as one before God.  Our lives, families, society, and our world can only be rebuilt from the truth of God’s word. We must not forsake our gathering together like some do – Hebrews 10:25


2. Another essential is the need for God’s pulpit preaching Pastor. An expository preaching Pastor is required to rebuild the work of God in his people. The body of Christ need a slow cooking Pastor, cooked in the truth of the word of God

3. Believers must assemble and call for the book of the law of God. It means we should come expectant and demand to hear the truth from the book of God. We need to hold our Pastors accountable to bring forth the word of God. Enough of the merchandising, fables, and doctrines of man

4. As individuals, we must be attentive to the word of God. It is your responsibility to plough the soil of your heart to prepare to receive God’s truth. Your preparation will yield insight and transformation

5. You must then apply the word of God you have received in your life, which is your ministry. You must be doers of what you have heard from the word, only then can you be the Bible that the world will read and come to believe Christ is in your midst

Come out from amongst them and be ye separate

In order to effect a positive change in the world believers have to swim against the current – the political correctness, Idolatry, and all sort in our society demanding our conformity. We cannot be like the world, to change the world. We are in the world but not of the world.

Defined And Known By Love

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds upThose who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to knowBut whoever loves God is known by God.

This pretty much tells us about the nature of love if you can see it from this perspective. Your love for God makes you known to God. It makes you known to others too. For the scriptures says by their fruits ye shall know them! Matthew 7:16-27

Matthew 7:16-20 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

God knows who loves Him. We should also know who loves us. If a supposed representative of God bears no good fruits that you can see amongst all virtues then you must know such is not of God. Do not be deceived. False Christians abound! Don’t be one either!

There is chaos in Texas and a Senator thinks this is the time to go on vacation? What fruit is this folks?

Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder!

It is time Christians begin to look at the fruits a tree is bearing. Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder! But when words are backed up by action, good or bad, you will know who is on the Lords side! We must be intentional in doing good! And for all! Not a selected few!

In our individual lives, we must take stock and weed out every greed, bitterness of Spirit, negativity, selfishness, and egocentrism most especially. Jesus Christ is our model! Be Christlike!

The story of the good Samaritan should teach each and everyone of us valuable lessons. It does no matter if the needy got themselves into their predicament, our duty as Christ’s beloved is to help. In the last 11 months or thereabout, how many of your Church member did you check upon man of God? How many did you send word of encouragement to woman of God? Christians should care for one another!

Love builds up! Love God, love yourself, and love others like yourself!

Shalom!
