Resisting!

Acts 9 Saul met with Christ on the way to Damascus and that encounter made him to be temporarily blind, temporary because Ananias had been ordained to restore his sight.

Saul lost his sight and was led by his companions to Damascus, to the house of Judas where it has been ordained for Ananias to meet with him.

I wonder how many people, potential Saints, have been blinded by the awesomeness of the encounter they have had with the person of the Holy Spirit!

I wonder how many people, “leaders” have been blinded also, they have lost touch with reality, for they have “spent too much time” in the presence of the light!

And the companions, they heard the sound, but did not see anyone. Had they, instead of leading, informing, guiding, and instructing, they block information from Saul, he would not have become Paul, or maybe not. God always has back-ups! No one is indispensable!

Would reluctant Ananias be patient with the kind of sycophants hanging around our leaders today? Had Saul’s companion hindered Ananias from seeing Saul, he probably would have remained blind. Can you fathom that?

Nowadays, we have countless people that do not have solution or suggestions to temper a looming crises, yet they stand in the way of the solution bearers.

Father, I pray that you will be merciful to us. For as many of us standing in the way of what you are doing in our midst this season, Lord be merciful and help us to move aside, that your will may be done.

May we not resist the power that we should embrace, and embrace the force we should resist.

Pour out your Spirit afresh on us Lord. Let every scale covering our eyes of understanding be removed in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom!

The Jezebel Inside!

When talking about Jezebel, many people refer to the esthetics:

2 Kings 9:30 Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out of a window.

We need to talk about the wicked conniving, rallying of elders, and sane people to take another’s inheritance by force, killing him! 1 Kings 21

You may have become a target because of what heaven endowed you with! Your gifts, skills, your successes, your talent, your predisposition, your aura, and to sum it all up, God’s glory on your life!

Jezebel was a conniving woman, she was a gossip, a witch who will kill and maim anyone, great and small to get what she want, her way, and always!

Jezebel was a manipulator who succeeded in turning the mind of everyone in Jezreel against Naboth – 1 Kings 21. Everyone who knew Naboth intimately suddenly turned against him.

There are many Jezebel in our families, friends, communities, in places of authority, not only turning the hearts of people against each other, but also against God.

Is there a trace of Jezebel in you friends?

I am also checking myself for the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9

Shalom!

Welcome July!

Presenting a transformed you to your world.

I believe being born again means reintroducing ourselves, our new being in Christ to the world.

When there is no difference between us and the world other than the words we speak, then we cannot impact the world, try as we may.

The world knows words are cheap.

However, acting out The Word, seeing a transformed being cannot be explained away! This is what can change the world

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


Change the world one person at a time starting with You! Your good self!

Shalom!

Voices, Vices! Truth!

There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.

Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.

Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.

What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.

You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.

At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23

By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!

Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!

Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21

Shalom!

Be Renewed. Put On Selflessness!

Matthew 9:16 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.
17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

Therefore, you cannot embark on a new way of being/ living/serving with the same old narrative, attitude, prejudice, arrogance, and what not.

Your old ways of not serving humanity must of necessity change. You may have done quite alright for yourself, it’s time to start doing all for the greater good of all. Put off self, and put on “selflessness”!

This, my friend is the highest level of self actualization. This is what will outlive you.

Absolutely!

What you do for others outlives you, even generations unborn.

Get going now with “The Good of All” in sight, and “Self” aside!
