Depart From The Futile Works of The Flesh!

When misfortune strikes an individual, or a collective, we often attribute it to their sin. It is assumed, albeit, subtly, that they may have a secret sin bringing evil their way.  The Lord said this is not so. May we be shielded from all evil. As the mountain surround Jerusalem, Lord surround us now and forever. Psalms 125:2. We trust in you Lord, therefor, we are are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever-  Psalms 125:1.

Luke 13:1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Jesus repeatedly warns in the paragraph above, “unless you repent, you too will all perish.” He went on to tell of the fig tree that was not bearing fruit. This is to teach us that God’s patience is meant to work out repentance in us 2 Peter 3:15.

Luke 13:6 Then he told this parable: A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ “‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’

works of the flesh

The patience of God with us is to bring us to the place of seeing ourselves through Christ. To see how unfit we are for the assignment we are created for and to seek for the guidance of the Holy Spirit to purge us so we may begin to bear the fruit of repentance.

Lord God Almighty, you are faithful and merciful, abounding in grace, be gracious unto us. Forgive us Oh Lord of all our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Help us Lord to depart, to forsake the futile works of the flesh. Enable us to be spiritually minded that your grace upon us may not be in vain. We honor and praise you Lord for speedy answers to our petition in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Relationship On My Mind! Unequally Yoked!

The Lord knew what effect and damage unequal yoke, alliance with those who do not know, love, and or submit to Christ can and will do to His Children. Apart from the strain of paddling in opposite direction in the same boat, it jeopardizes us as redeemed of the Lord from maintaining fire on the altar. It is a dangerous thing to fall away friends! The pain will subside, the wound will heal by the mercies of God, however as stated in the Open Heavens of November 11, “wounds can heal, but the scars would remain”.

Every instruction in the word is for our good, however in the hardness of our hearts, ignorance, and in many instances due to error, and youthful exuberance – I call this the state where we believe we have “super powers”, believers fall away from God ordained pathway for relationships into outright disobedience.

Deuteronomy 7:Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, for they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods, and the Lord’s anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you.

2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 17 Therefore,“Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”18 And,“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Nehemiah 13:23 Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. 24 Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. 25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves. 26 Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women.   27 Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?”28 One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me.

King Solomon, the wisest king who ever lived was led astray, away from God. This reveals to me that our choices is not based on how wise we are. Solomon loved the Lord and was zealous in his worship of his fathers’ God, yet the desires of his flesh, lust of the eyes led him away from the path of righteousness. At the end of his life, he was deluded, vanity upon vanity he wrote!

The mercies of God is available to us today by the blood of Jesus. The Lord will indeed restore us to him if we call upon him with a repentant heart. He will make all grace available to us to bear our crosses and follow him, salvaging what is left of who we are and transforming it into who we are meant to be.

Nehemiah beat some of the men and pulled out their hair after raining curses on them. There is no one to do that, I mean no one has to do that now, for the situation and circumstances are the things pulling our hairs today better than any Nehemiah could ever do! We must learn to obey God’s instruction!

Father Lord, thank you for your mercies. For bringing us out of bondage, giving us another chance time and time again to live in obedience to your will for us.

Father, we ask that you will heal every broken heart that have come to you in repentance. Restore us to you Lord in your mercy.

For those that are in the middle of the hurricane Lord, show them mercy, speak peace to them Lord for many are hurting and cannot see beyond their noses now.

In your mercy Lord, let the light of your countenance shine upon the dark places and show them a way back into your will we pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

 

Understanding The Goodness!Gives Overflowing Joy!

When I think of the goodness of Jesus
And all He has done for me
My very soul shall shout
Hallelujah
Praise God for saving grace

It has not always been like this
For I kept beating myself up
For all the lies I had believed
The dumb things I have said
The wicked way I had acted

Believing the lies gave me nothing to work with
I was tossed here and there by every wind of doctrine
Until the Lord in His mercy stepped in
He got my attention when my back was to the wall
Boxed in at every side with nowhere to turn

I lifted up my eyes unto the hills
I cried out for mercy and He heard me
He reached down to lift me up
He held me close and soothe my pain
Reassuring me He will never leave nor forsake

All those who put thier trust in Him
Rejoice therefor and be glad
Sing a new song to the Lord of our Salvation
To Him who was, who is and who is to come
Glory, honor, and adoration belongs to you

 In Nehemiah 8 – Ezra the Priest brought the Law before the assembly, made up of  men and women and all those who were able to understand. He read it aloud from day break till noon. And all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Law.

As the ceremony began, everyone stood up. Ezra praised the Lord, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, “Amen”. Excitement was high until the words that were been read made sense. When the Levites explained what was been read clearly, giving it meaning for all to understand. The people must have realized how rebellious they had been, for their countenance changed and they became sad. Their understanding birth reflection.

psalm-143So have I been each time the Lord shows me another of my flaws, in my character, speech, interactions and reaction to others. Friends, as our hearts are been transformed by the renewing of our minds by the word of God, we will be saddened here and there by what we see of our true self.

However, the Lord has gone ahead to tell us in Nehemiah 8:9 “This day is holy to the Lord your God. Do not mourn or weep.” For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law. 10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

This means that , when we notice our errors, flaws and mistakes, we should actually celebrate, for it means the word of God is actually profiting our soul, it is a time of jubilation. It means that we are growing, we are understanding The Word, and it is transforming us from within! We are beginning to take root downwards, and bear good fruit upwards.

nehemiah-8-10Therefor friends, celebrate your salvation, celebrate the fact that you are living to make as many mistakes as you have made! Celebrate the fact that all is working out, a plan, a purpose for God’s glory. Your mistakes are been transformed to a message for God’s people and His glory. Look deeply into the word and you will see a pattern of God’s great mercy and love in your life. Rejoice I say, rejoice in the Lord! You are highly favored.

Nehemiah 8:12 Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Do you know you are blessed more than you know and acknowledge friends? Your disposition, and every single particle that makes you who you are was knitted together with love!

You are blessed more than you know!!!  You are remarkable! Pat yourself on the back dear! You are doing very great! 

Keep smiling, keep believing, keep faith, keep doing what you know how to do -living as best you know how to! I see pleasant surprises on the horizon for you! Yes! Joy unspeakable, the kind that silences all fear! 

Rejoice and be glad dear! The tide is turning for your good!

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

Determined To Live Life!!!

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time, this very season

I shall possess all that is mine in destiny

For the hand that is not of mortal is fighting for me

Recovering all that I have lost, withheld from me, and robbed off!

Great are you Lord! Be magnified!

Radiant Glory Of Love

bestrongI refuse to be hardened by the working of the elements

The seemingly conspiring of the universe

For all that God created are meant for my good

Although, I have been cheated many a times

Ridiculed, maligned, and oppressed

I counted it as nothing for the price set before me

For I know that faithful is He who called me

For at the appointed time, in a short time

As ordained of God, Most High

The Universe, all creation will conspire

To favor my righteous cause

I therefor will stand my ground

Resisting evil fiercely if need be

For God’s kingdom suffers violence

That I might see the Salvation of the Lord

For there is yet beauty beyond the ashes

Celebration, joy and peace

In the place of the storm

Life is still worth living

Beauty encased in!

Only to be revealed

To the willing, obedient, and determined

To get…

Dear Lord Almighty, I pray that you will have preeminence in my life, family and community. That you will fill me and my brethren with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so we may walk worthy of You our Savior, fully pleasing you in all our ways, so we may be fruitful in every Good Work, not hindering or being a rock of offence to each other, but being supportive of each other to the fulfilment of your plan and purpose for our lives.

For you have delivered US from the kingdom of darkness and translated us by your love to the kingdom of your dear Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth in whom we have redemption through His death and the shedding of His blood on Calvary’s tree, cleansing all our sins, nailing it to the Cross.
