Insight From The Eyes Of An Outsider Like You!

Hello friends, here are some things I want you to know from the book of Galatian.

Paul is not an apostle through man, but of God  Galatians 1:1. Christ Jesus gave himself up for our sins so that he might deliver us from this present evil age- vs 4. If you live to please men, you cannot be a bondservant, a follower of Christ Jesusvs 10. That means you cannot serve or follow anyone outside of Christ Jesus.

speak truthWhen Paul received the gospel by revelation through Jesus Christ, he did not confer with any man – vs 12. Instead- vs 16, Paul immediately went on evangelizing just like the Samaritan woman in John 4: 5-30 at the well with Jesus. After the encounter with Jesus, she went into the city inviting the whole city to come and meet with Jesus Christ.

What have you been doing since your encounter with the Lord Jesus? How many people, city have you invited to meet with Jesus Christ? We often wait for validation, ordination, and all the protocol and traditions of men endlessly. In the scriptures, every encounter with Christ Jesus broke protocols. It made a bold evangelist out of the most unlikely individualsJohn 4, In Mark 5:19 Christ himself said, in response to the madman of Gadara, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.

characterTherefore, make sure to be led by revelation, by the Holy SpiritGalatians 2:2. And be cautious of false brethren, fake Christians who act as a spy: looking for information to blackmail you, to bring you into bondage. Your freedom in Christ Jesus is of concern to them. They will rather prefer you in bondage for their own selfish gain- vs 4.

Do not yield to their distractions, but continue with your workvs 5. Those puffed up due to their position or whatever need not intimidate you. Stand your ground and you will see that they will come to accept the grace of God upon your life.The Lord shows no favouritism to no man”. His grace is available to all – Galatians 6:6

Anyone concerned about the Kingdom of God perceiving the grace of God upon your life should extend to you a hand of fellowship. If they do not, you should know then, that they are definitely not building the Kingdom of God, but their own personal Kingdom –Galatians 2:9

You are not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. Believing in Christ Jesus justify you! No flesh shall be justified by the works of the lawGalatians 2:16

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!

Live then as unto Christ Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Letter To Womenfolks

To all the ladies like Ruth and Naomi, the Lord shall redeem you. To all the unloved women like Leah the Lord is your joy and lover.

godslovestillworkingTo the Abigails, the Rebeccas, Deborahs, to the Sarahs and Hagars, the Zipporahs, the Tamars, the Rehabs, Bathsheba’s, Vashti’s, Esther’s, and all those like the Samaritan woman – John 4, the Lord Jesus shall meet with you. Jesus will redeem you, and restore you for he loves you with an everlasting love – Jeremiah 31:3.

His covering of goodness and mercy shall be upon your life forever. Christ radiant glory shall be your covering, his mighty hand shall keep you steady –  Ezekiel 43:2.

Christ LoveYou must, however, turn towards the Lord with your whole heart (Jeremiah 29:13-14) to see the love in his eyes. Reach out and place your hands in Christ’s hands stretched out to touch, hold and lead you on the pathway of righteousness, peace and real joy.

To all the Delilahs and Jezebels, those that promote idol worship, materialistic, vain, and wicked, killing those with great destinies and colourful glory through betrayal, gossips, backbiting, envy, covetousness, and jealousy, the Lord frowns on you – 1 Kings 16:31-33, 1 Kings 18:4-13, 1 Kings 19:1-2, Revelations 2:20

To every woman opposing the work of God and his Prophets, killing the righteous through manipulations, divination, sorcery, and witchcraft – Exodus 22:18, 1 Kings 21, the Lords judgment will come swiftly upon you. The rod of his wrath is stretched against you except you repent.

Repent today of your many sins for the Lord loves you still. You are the work of his hands!!! No one that comes to the Lord will be cast away – John 6:37. Repent and forsake your sins and you will be accepted in the beloved.

Living The Word! Truth!

“This means put into practice the truth you have already comprehended. We are responsible for the truth we currently possess.” NIV Commentary

What truth do you already know? Are you living by It? We all know the greatest commandment! Don’t we all? Don’t you? Well, let me tell you! 
It is according to Jesus Christ, to “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 the 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. Matthew 22:37 – 39

Let us act out on this truth, all of us that knows this truth, and I know, certainly so, we will be able to make a difference in our world, starting from our family. Charity begins at home! 

Let us endeavour to live a life of love! Just think about this for a moment. Treating everyone the way you like to be treated, doing unto others what you expect to be done to you. 

We will be kinder, nicer, thoughtful, selfless, respectful, giving, we will live more freely, be authentic, less judgemental, and the list goes on. Our world, I mean our relationship, family, Churches, community, will be different from what it is now! 

“No matter what I am going through, love always pulls me out of whatever darkness wants to drown me! Love is my life’s anchor!” Joan Boldact

Help us Lord to live the truth we already know! Help us to not only love in words, but in action. Help us to forgive so we can be forgiven we pray in Jesus mighty name.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

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.”

housedivided

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!
