A Temple Of God! You!!!

That’s plain enough, isn’t it? You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone.

God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together.

We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.
Ephesians 2:19‭-‬22 MSG

Be Sensitive! Be Aware!

Luke 19:42 Jesus wept over Jerusalem saying, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes.

Why was it hidden?

Luke 19:44 because you did not recognise the time of God’s coming to you.

Luke 20:38 He (God) is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.

1 Chronicles 22:12 May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel!

1 Chronicles 28:19 All this, “David said, I have in writing as a result of the Lord’s hand on me; and he enables me to understand all the details of the plan”. The plan for the temple of the Lord to be built by King Solomon.

What has the Lord laid on your heart? Do you have it written down? Do you have a plan through which it can be established, executed?

Remember! Ye are the temple of the Living God -1 Corinthian 3:16-17

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Discernment! Two Way Mirror!

The gift of discernment does not only tell you about truth and lies, it also tells you about situations unfolding before you, or about people, what they are saying, the lie and acts put out, versus who they really are. Their motives!

Discernment may be a burden if handled by self! It is a gift of the spirit and should be treated as such.

Discernment also checks the discerning, it reveals to you your own motives, errors or what not. This helps you to treat your own illness – remove the log from your own eyes, and to be understanding, forgiving and less critical of others.

However, being able to smell a lie, see, hear and discern duplicity and inauthenticity a mile away, will alter your action and reaction to a situation. You can see the game playing right before your eyes. It may become difficult to keep a straight face and allow the Spirit to work it out! Ask for grace here!

Jesus Christ knew Judas was a thief, yet He put him in charge of the ministry’s finance. Jesus knew he will betray him, yet he kept him close – John 12:5-6, John 13:28-29, Luke 22:3

If you and I hear what is not spoken, see what is invisible, like an X-ray eye, will we be able to look people in the face? Look at ourselves?

I guess not! Purge, therefore, the evil from within and among you says the Lord!

We all, therefore, need to cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, to help us in the renewing of our minds.

May the fire of the Holy Spirit purify our hearts, body, and soul! Only then can we really be a living sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

When The Fire Falls!

Fire fire fire, fire fall on me. Like the day of Pentecost, fire fall on me!

What exactly can you expect when you #letthefirefall? What is the fire we are talking about? This is the fire of the Holy Spirit, the consuming fire, the wisdom of God, the purifier, the tester, revealer of truth, and much more!

When this fire falls on you, you will never be the same again. Your eyes of understanding will be enlightened –  Ephesians 1:17-18. You will know the truth and it shall set you free from every form of bondage – John 8:31-32.

Come and have your heart circumcised for your dominion mandate. 

See you there!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Let The Fire Fall!

You are in your raw state my friend if you are yet to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

You are good as you are here on earth, but stubble, waste, for here after. In this state, you cannot leave an enduring legacy, and damned to eternal darkness.

If you are willing to open your heart for Christ to come in, if you #LetTheFireFall, you will be purified and made whole, fit for the Master’s Kingdom, with the assurance of eternal bliss in the presence of the bright and morning star, Jesus Christ, the King Eternal.

#LetTheFireFall on you friend! Let your heart be transformed! #BeBornAgain.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Avoiding Pitfalls With Utterances!

It is a wise thing to learn to be careful with our words. To speak without a filter before God shows the level of our reverence for God. If we revere God as we profess, it will show in our actions. We will mince our words especially when it carries grave meaning and consequence in order not to wound others. At the same time, we need to be careful of mincing words so much so that we eliminate truth outrightly. The truth still needs to be told in its truest form.

Leadership with understanding was lacking in King Saul. On the one hand, he wants to be the peoples King, pleasing and accepted by Israel, at the expense of his reverence for God, neglecting the commandment of God. What is popular with the masses does not mean it is sanctioned by heaven. We need to strike a balance between serving people and serving God acceptably.

King Saul did not inquire of the Lord before uttering the vow of abstinence from food. If he had inquired, I believe God would have told him these people are hungry and fearful, placing a curse on them would make their dire situation even worst. King Saul’s utterance that day capped the victory God had earmarked for the whole of Israel that day for they were too weak to pursue Philistines further, and he also made the people sin against God, in that they ate meat with its blood.

1 Samuel 14: 28 Then one of the people said, “Your father strictly charged the people with an oath, saying, ‘Cursed is the man who eats food this day.’” And the people were faint. 29 But Jonathan said, “My father has troubled the land. Look now, how my countenance has brightened because I tasted a little of this honey. 30 How much better if the people had eaten freely today of the spoil of their enemies which they found! For now would there not have been a much greater slaughter among the Philistines?” 31 Now they had driven back the Philistines that day from Michmash to Aijalon. So the people were very faint32 And the people rushed on the spoil, and took sheep, oxen, and calves, and slaughtered them on the ground; and the people ate them with the blood. 33 Then they told Saul, saying, “Look, the people are sinning against the Lord by eating with the blood!” So he said, “You have dealt treacherously; roll a large stone to me this day.” 34 Then Saul said, “Disperse yourselves among the people, and say to them, ‘Bring me here every man’s ox and every man’s sheep, slaughter them here, and eat; and do not sin against the Lord by eating with the blood.’” So every one of the people brought his ox with him that night and slaughtered it there. 35 Then Saul built an altar to the Lord. This was the first altar that he built to the Lord.

Father Lord, give us understanding and wisdom to live a life that is worthy of your calling.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Pulpit! Your Platform!

A very dangerous trend in “Christiandom”, an error, a deviation from what “Christianity”- Christlike living is all about is what the pulpit, Christian platforms are been used for these days. I AM ALSO GUILTY! AND YOU!

The pulpit is been used these days to settle scores with those we do not see eye to eye with. Those not on our “good books”!

The pulpit is used to “Call out” those that we differ with on doctrinal issues. This is causing disunity of the body of Christ!

The pulpit is used to market ourselves, not Christ, as alpha and omega, how awesomely smart and perfect we are.

The pulpit is used to flaunt our wealth, pedigree, and our interconnectionism to the high and mighty of our world.

The pulpit is used to manipulate, oppress, oppose, and suppress others for our own selfish gain and reasons.

The pulpit is used to carryout the agenda of Satan, albeit disguised as “the work of God”!

The pulpit is been used to dissuade and persuade those genuinely seeking The Truth, The Way, and Life that there are other ways, and thus led astray!

Who are we deceiving when we discredit everything the true gospel is all about by eschewing humility, justice, and agape kind of love?

It is time we realize that we are doing more damage than repairing the old ruin, building on the solid foundation which is Christ Jesus. For with every one convert we think we may have “won” over to Christ, many more are been discouraged. Every man’s work shall be tested by fire! See therefore that you are not building with straw.

Lord, many a time I have deviated from your will, oh how I have lashed out from a place of anger and not a place of love. Please forgive me.

I have tried to remove the specks in my brothers and sisters eyes while I have logs in my own eyes blocking my views of myself, clogging my ears to hear you clearly, hardning my heart from doing the right thing, to uphold justice, peace, love, and fairness.

Abba Father forgive me. You have forgiven me much Lord, help me to forgive others.

Help me to overlook the fault of others, thier errors, arrogance and boasting, for it is your grace that has kept me humble and makes me boast only of your goodness and love towards me.

Thank you Lord Jesus for your mighty hand upon my life! As your hand is upon me Lord, no other hand shall be upon me in Jesus name, this I know!

May the light of your countenance continuously shine upon me to guide and illuminate every dark places in and around me!

Lord, would you make me terror to the kingdom of darkness? Let your fire come out of this vessel to devour everything that is not of You! Yes Lord, make me a vessel fit for your use in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
