Outsiders! And The Fire!

Ģod is raising up “outsiders”, those the “Jews” of our times have labelled unfit to be used of God.

Outsiders are those that does not fit into the picture perfect image of religion. And Jews? Those are the religious, self righteous bigot of today!

Well! Here’s what the scriptures says:

There was dead silence. No one said a word. With the room quiet, Barnabas and Paul reported matter-of-factly on the miracles and wonders God had done among the other nations through their ministry.

The silence deepened; you could hear a pin drop. James broke the silence.

Friends, listen. Simeon has told us the story of how God at the very outset made sure that racial outsiders were included.

This is in perfect agreement with the words of the prophets: After this, I’m coming back; I’ll rebuild David’s ruined house; I’ll put all the pieces together again; I’ll make it look like new So outsiders who seek will find, so they’ll have a place to come to, All the pagan peoples included in what I’m doing. “God said it and now he’s doing it. It’s no afterthought; he’s always known he would do this. Acts 15:13‭-‬18 MSG

Brethren, look around you! Take a look! Who are the ones on fire for the Lord? Who are signs and wonders?

The Outsiders, once bartered, rejected, abandoned, traumatised, abused, discarded, murderers, doubtful, prostitute, I mean, the once good for nothing walking on the way to hell.These are the souls on fire, ablaze and burning for the Lord now!

The religious, self righteous, picture perfect, law observing, and enforcers? The Holy Spirit may bypass you in this last days! I am being generous here! 🙂

Lord Jesus, be merciful unto us and rekindle the fire on the altar of our hearts. Deliver us from self righteousness and help us to take up and hold unto the righteousness that is ours in Christ Jesus, we pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Discernment! Prevent Errors!

It’s time to start questioning what you hear about others, those words that were dropped in your ears that made you to “hate” on your brothers and sisters, those remarks that have affected your disposition towards them in a negative way!

There are many from the Synagogue of the Freedman, who could not, and cannot stand up against the wisdom the Spirit has given Stephen as he spoke, and you as you live your life as best you can. Acts 6:10

They have stirred up other people against one another. This causes factions in families, Churches, community, and even in nations. A little unwholesome fire kindling hatred and division.

Do not buy into the murky waters of deception friends!

Pray for eyes that sees and ears that hears what the Spirit says.

It wasn’t what Stephen has said or is saying! It is about that which the Lord has filled him with, God’s glory, His Holy Spirit, and power! They could see it, and it’s blinding their eyes!

They do not want to see themselves in the light of God radiating through Stephen!

“”””Now Stephen, full of grace (divine blessing, favor) and power, was doing great wonders and signs (attesting miracles) among the people.

However, some men from what was called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (freed Jewish slaves), both Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and some from Cilicia and [the province of] Asia, rose up and questioned and argued with Stephen.

But they were not able to successfully withstand and cope with the wisdom and the intelligence [and the power and inspiration] of the Spirit by whom he was speaking.

Then [to attack him another way] they secretly instructed men to say, “We have heard this man [Stephen] speak blasphemous (slanderous, sacrilegious, abusive) words against Moses and against God.”

And they provoked and incited the people, as well as the elders and the scribes, and they came up to Stephen and seized him and brought him before the Council (Sanhedrin, Jewish High Court).

They presented false witnesses who said, “This man never stops speaking against this holy place and the Law [of Moses]; for we have heard him say that this Jesus the Nazarene will tear down this place and will change the traditions and customs which Moses handed down to us.”

Then all those who were sitting in the Council, stared [intently] at him, and they saw that Stephen’s face was like the face of an angel.”””” ACTS 6:8‭-‬15 AMP

May the Lord deliver you from every evil alliance. May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened that you might see clearly and understand the underlying cause of what you behold, hear, and perceive! May you not fall into error of stoning the righteous- Stephen, Naboath, and permitting the witch – Jezebel, and tbose of the Synagogue of the Freedman to live!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

So Easy! Falling Into Error!

It is so easy to fall into error! Test every spirit the Lord said! 1 John 4:1

As the Lord lays tables before His own, remember it is in the presence of the enemy! Psalms 23:5

Satan will always table error arrayed as the real thing before God’s children. He did when he took Jesus to a very high mountain in Matthew 4:8-9. Satan showed the Lord, the world and asked Jesus to bow to him.

What revelation have you received? If it contradicts the Word, or requires you to twist the Scriptures- the Holy Word of God, then it is counterfeit. It is not of God!

What pressure, need, desire are you bowing before? What are you idolizing, worshiping, other than the creator? Mammon?

By discernment of the Holy Spirit you will be able to weigh revelations in light of the Scriptures.

Peter had to question Jesus when he was asked to eat unclean animals! Acts 10:9-15.

You need to question what you receive of the Lord!

Is it for the advancement of the gospel, for the good of all?

Or is it for your ego trip, personal gain, self-serving, self-esteem, feel good kind of thing?

May the Lord keep us all from falling into error! Mercy on your chosen Lord!

Error makes false teacher!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

True Ambassadors! Integrity!

Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

According to Luke, this is Jesus’s last word to his disciple, and to you and I. Jesus is saying even now that when the Holy Spirit comes upon us that we will be witnesses in our locale and to the ends of the earth.

integrityIs this true of us believers today? Are we truly Christ Jesus ambassadors? Are we truly representing Jesus to the unsaved, lost, weary, discouraged, downtrodden? Is your answer in the affirmative? I guess not! You and I know that the Word of God is powerful and able to transform lives. We know how to wedge the word to dislodge everything contrary to Christ Jesus, however, it seem the world is not changing, our society, community, families and lives are still what it used to be. We have not changed! We lack integrity! 

Integrity! It means saying something, meaning it, and doing it. Integrity refers to your actions matching your words. Many times we say one thing and act another thing. This makes us not to be taken seriously. We are prone to speak from two sides of our mouth, I mean we say something and actually mean another. We have become two-faced! This need to change for us to impact our world effectively and efficiently for the Lord.

integrity when no one sees

As a parent, you ought to know by now, and as a friend, colleague, part of a group, you must know by now that when someone lack integrity, those in contact with you take your words with a pinch of salt, for it is just mere words. You do not inspire the best in others around you if your words mean nothing to them.

The Word itself carries depth of meaning and powerful by itself, however coming from you, hmmm, may connote a different meaning because your actions do not often match your words. All this is seen and heard clearly!

As a child, my dad very often will come with the driver, a chauffeur to pick us up after school. Dad will always have one stop or another to make along the way home. We lived about 40kms from our school, in the outskirt of our city. Dad will always want to see one or other of his relations, friends and acquaintances on the way. Dad will say, ” children, I will be back in a minute or two, and be gone for half hour. We were an okay family, so most times there is always refreshment in the vehicle with us. There was always a cooler with Maltina and a bag with Nasco biscuit to snack on, but we want to go home and play or something. You know children! We were typical children, restless when in one place.

postsAfter a while, we stopped believing dad’s 1 to 5 means just that. We were actually surprised one day when dad took just about 5 minutes or less. We clapped when he joined us in the vehicle.

Most of you must have been in that situation. You can relate to this scenario right? My children these days ask, “are we just going home after church or do you want to stop by the groceries or something mummy?” Can we just go home please?! “You can do that on your way from work tomorrow mummy!” Guess I took after my dad eh. 🙂

actionsWhere am I going with this? As a bible believer who desires to be a true ambassador of Christ, we must endeavor to match our words with our actions! If we say ABC, then we must act ABC! We must not say ABC, and act DEFG.

We must start living the word, not just saying it, preaching it, shouting it at the top of our lungs. We must be living it day in day out. The Word is powerful by itself! It can really change lives, transform minds and heart! Why don’t we allow it to transform us, renew our minds, so we can truly say something, mean it, and back it up with our actions.

There are too many professing Christ, but very few Christ redeemed, ambassadors of faith. We can all turn a new leaf today. Jesus Christ is able to transform you and I!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

He Is Longing For Thee!

Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call on Him [for salvation] while He is near.
ISAIAH 55:6

“It shall also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
ISAIAH 65:24 AMP

‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’
JEREMIAH 33:3 AMP

~‘Behold, [in the restored Jerusalem] I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace (prosperity, security, stability) and truth. ~‘I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first. ~‘I will cleanse them from all their wickedness (guilt) by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon (forgive) all their sins by which they rebelled against Me. ~‘Jerusalem will be to Me a name of joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth which will hear of all the good that I do for it, and they shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace (prosperity, security, stability) that I provide for it.’
JEREMIAH 33:6‭-‬9 AMP

It’s In You! What? Radiant Glory!

“Come now, let us settle the matter,”
    says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
    they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimso9n,
    they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18

Open your mouth and I will fill it up with the words that sustain the weary – Psalms 81:10

Let us come together to unveil the Radiant Glory! It’s already in you! Your sins have been wiped away by the blood of Jesus. His essence within you just need to be activated by faith.

Hebrews 1:3 The Son ( Christ Jesus) is the radiance of God’s glory the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful  word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Come and activate the Radiant Glory. You’ve got it in you! It is resident in you, and you! John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

Let us come together to foster relationships and alliances that encourages, nurtures, and builds up our faith in God, and the finished work done on our behalf. 

Join me on this platform as we unveil our true identity, as daughters of Zion in Christ Jesus! 

It’s In You! Radiant Glory!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
