My First Love! 

“” I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; ” and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not been weary. “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. “Remember therefore from where you have fallen;  repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent.”” Revelations 2- 5

Dear Lord, do not remove my lampstand! Let me always be in your presence. Forgive me Lord of the errors of my ways! Do not cut me off with the wicked. Open my heart to love as at the beginning.

Let the light of your countenance seek me out and lead me back to my first love! You, Oh Lord, you are my hiding place, my refuge from the storm, my joy and hope, you are my first love Lord. It is in you that I live, breath and have my being.  You are my all in all!
Friends, will you repent today of all your sins? The sins that easily beset us. May we not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin. May all distraction be put into perspective so we may see the wiles of the wicked and wage war accordingly.  

Oh Lord be merciful unto us and help us to do the first work, to love you whole heartedly and love our neighbors as ourself. Reconcile our confusion! Give us clarity! 

Lord, we want to operate from a place of love always, help us! Our spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak! Give us your strength Lord Jesus. 

You said your strength is made perfect in our weakness – 2 Corinthians 12:9, this Lord we believe, and are grateful. We take up your strength today, to do the needful, so the expected mayest manifest! 

We will do the first work by your grace Lord! Thank you for giving us another chance! Be magnified Oh Lord!

Repent today of your evil ways! The patience of God worketh Salvation 2 Peter 3:15

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Prevailing Voices! Let It Be Of Love!

Lord God Almighty, I pray today for my friends and I. Lord let not the voice of our enemies prevail over our lives in Jesus Mighty name. Luke 23:23 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed.

House_Divided

When evil reigns in a land, a life, a community, a group, people with opposing views, not seeing eye to eye will join forces and voices, albeit temporarily, they will come together in unity against a common perceived enemy.  This was the case with our Lord Jesus Christ. The Pharisees and Sadducee have opposing views, yet they bound together against the Lord Jesus, the man they have identified as a common enemy, accused of inciting the people of the land against their rule. The man sent by God to deliver them from eternal darkness. Luke 23:10  The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.

Luke 23:1 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, “We have found this man subverting our nation.  He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Messiah, a king.” So Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “You have said so,” Jesus replied. Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no basis for a charge against this man.” But they insisted, “He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here.”

Friends, many that have heard of your good works, envious of you and threatened by your light revealing the darkness in them will look for occasion to ridicule and mock you. They will band together like Herod and Pilate for the sole purpose of  frustrating your righteous cause. Like Haman, they will seek for your head – Esther 3. You need to be aware of this and pray that as many as gather together against you shall fall for your sake – Isaiah 54:15. May evil not sit in judgement over you. Luke 23:12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends—before this they had been enemies.

I pray Lord that your love will reign supreme in the land. I pray for grace for your children to set aside our differences in order to wage war in unity against your enemies, our enemies the devil. I pray that divisiveness, the doctrine of divide and rule will be exposed and eradicated from amongst your people. For a house divided against itself cannot stand. Help us to build well on the solid foundation we have in your son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Understanding Birth Reflection! It Regenerate And Transform!

In Luke 8 Jesus Christ traveled from one town and village to another proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Jesus was accompanied by the twelve disciples and some women who He had cured of evil spirits and diseases. The women ministered to the Lord from their own substances.

Christ Jesus then told a parable to His hearers. The parable of The Sower. He then said, ” whoever has ears to hear, let them hear”. The disciples did not understand the parable and asked Jesus to explain it. This was the case in Nehemiah 8 also, when the book of the Law was read. The people said “Amen”, without a clue as to what it meant until Ezra explained it to them clearly. Only then where they able to receive, digest and bring up fruit of repentance.

Luke 8 10How often do we hear the word of God and it profit us nothing? Some of us have been following the Lord for decades, hearing with ears quite alright, but devoid of understanding. Why devoid of understanding?

For one, the Word of God according to Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

luke 8 18The Word of God is a two edged sword. It is meant to transform, to change, turn things upside down, down upwards. If we have been with the Lord for a while and our heart has not changed, if our minds have not been renewed, even when things around us have changed, then I doubt if we understand the good news of the gospel.

Luke 8:10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, ‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand”.

This shows that we can hear, know about something, yet not understand it. It then will not profit us, for it is only after we have heard, know and understand that what we have heard can nourish and produce fruits typical of a regenerated soul.

There is a difference then in hearing, acquiring knowledge and understanding.

  • Hearing – You can hear without understanding
  • Knowledge – You can know about something without understanding it.
  • Understanding – You cannot understand anything without hearing and knowing.

It is thus, the understanding of what you are hearing and have knowledge about that will yield and can produce results, that will bring about transformational change from within.  

Except we understand the greatest commandment, we cannot be regenerated and transformed to the image of Christ Jesus.

Matthew 22: 36 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.   39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Whatever we are doing, if it cannot pass through this filter unscathed, then it is not worthwhile, it is of no eternal reward, be it paying tithe, worship, activities, service, “working” for God, whatever!!

Father Lord, give us understanding. Help us Sovereign God to understand your every word so that it may profit our soul in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

How Concerned Are You?

How concerned are you? How concerned am I for the house of our Lord that lies in ruin? You have two to ten properties giving you income, investments here and there, I mean you are set up financially for the next three to five generations! You care less what happens to the house of our Lord as long as the status quo is maintained!!! Or like me, you are barely surviving, I mean, you are working hard to put food on the table, keep your head above water, and have a little investment, something for the next generation. I care less if Jerusalem lies in ruins. I have too much trouble of my own to look after, what do I care about the heart bit of God? Is this you? And I? For real Friends?

Matthew 3

This is where Nehemiah is different from you and I. He was saddened by what he heard about Jerusalem – Nehemiah 1 & 2. He was the cup bearer for King Artaxerxes, the King of Persia, the “iku baba ye ye of his days”, the paramount ruler, powerful and influential person. Nehemiah was a creme de la cream of his days. He had risen from been a captive to stardom. He bears the cup for the King of Persia. What more can a man hope for. Nehemiah had it all!!! Why should he care about what goes on in Jerusalem? Good luck to them in Jerusalem would have been his thought if he were like you and I, present day professing Christ followers!

nehemiahbgFriends, you and I are far from been like Nehemiah, who had everything going for him, but risk everything to rebuild the ruins of what was left of his ancestors homeland. What are you doing to rebuild the house of God! What are you and I doing to infuse hope into the hopeless? What are we doing to revive the downcast, bowed down, weighed down by life? What are we doing to encourage the broken hearten, strengthen the feeble hands, share good tidings to the lost? What are we doing about disciplining nations for our King?

identifyNot surprising how we live our christian life, for to most of us, our relationship is “transactional” as Pastor Sunday Adelaja put it, our relationship with the Father of Spirits is not transformational. We are into Christianity for what we can get from God and not what we can do for him, and His people, the soul He died for.

If we care just a little bit like Nehemiah, then we would not stand in the way of the Lord. We would engage every gift, talent, resources at our disposal to rebuild the ruins of what is left of Christianity, Christ followers in our locale, and the world over.  “Ruins” because majorities belief in the community of believers is faulty. Spiritual growth is at best superficial. The word is misquoted and used to back up the lie we live. The true gospel of peace to all is far from our lips!

Unlike Nehemiah, you and I, oppress, beat down each other, withhold good from each other, and God’s Kingdom. We work for ourselves, enriching our pockets, building mega churches with “transactional” Christians in the sanctuary for material wealth and to maintain the status quo. We should have transcended this by now friends. Christianity is beyond social status, title, position, props and speeches to tingle the ears of Saints. Christianity means to rebuild what has been torn down, give hope to people, heal the sick, empower the weak, enlighten the ignorant, build up an army well equipped to disciple nations. 

Friends, do not be a Sanballat, or Tobiah, against the welfare of the people of God. Do not hinder that which will benefit everyone including you, just because whatever!!. Everything does not have to revolve around you dear. God is more than able to raise up stones – Matthew 3:9, Luke 19:40.

God at this time is raising up an army, presently submerged under water. At the appointed time, when they rise up, what we know of , presently existing will be no more, for the flood will sweep the sanctuary clean of all those buying and selling!! This is a revelation for the wise to take note and readjust. His kingdom shall come and His will be done!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Watch “RT Kendall Respect the Anointing” on YouTube

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
