I Charge You!! Pray!

So Peter was kept in prison, but fervent and persistent prayer for him was being made to God by the church. ACTS 12:5 AMP

It is sickening that the Church of this last days, do not pray for each other. How we have grown in the wrong direction baffles me.

These days, when we see brethren in bondage to sin, being persecuted, arrested by poverty, troubles, failures, and the likes, WE, the Church, Pastors and congregants alike point fingers, makes jest, insinuates demeaning remarks etcetera, about them.

We are charged by Christ to pray for each other, including those we perceive as enemies – James 5:16, Matthew 5:44

It’s even worst when snide remarks are heard from the pulpit!

Christians! Christ beloved and followers, please repent! We must start loving Christ genuinely by caring for His body, one another!

Just think about it friends! Will Jesus know a brother or Sister in need and not reach out to such?

Take a look around, how many people have you personally touched with kindness?

How many in your congregation, family, friends and acquitances have you shown kindness? Just being nice!!! I mean, this may be all that someone needs!

How about prayer? How many do you know struggling, arrested and in prison, enclosed about by poverty, lack, relationship woes, addiction, and the likes, have you earnestly prayed up?

This is what true Christianity is all about! Caring for one another enough to talk to the Father on their behalf positively.

I said positively because many would rather God takes some off the face of the earth so they can shine more, or covet what belongs to them.

Friends, I charge you in Christ name to pray for a brother or Sister you know or perceive may be going through an unpalatable situation.

Just do it and you’ll see how satisfying it is. Your Spirit man will confirm the heart of the Father and you will feel peace like never before.

Try it! It is liberating!

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!

Against All! Grace Speaks!

You never know who is jealous of You! Read Acts 5:12-20

Those that should celebrate your deliverance from doubt and unbelief, your healings – emotional, physical, and psychological, may have not wanted that miracle to be yours, because of whatever!

But for God!!! Hallelujah!!!

The teacher of the law, if they were good men should be celebrating the good taking place before their very eyes amongst the people, but…

They were filled with jealousy! They tried to discourage, belittle, and maligne the Apostles!

But God?

He will always show up for You!!

Watch out, for as it was, so is, so shall it be!

There will always be those that will work relentlessly to douse your fire, your spark!

I found out that those with what seemingly looks “small” are not envious or jealous, they are content, while striving for more!

But those seemingly with ‘all’? Never content, never satisfied, always wanting to grab from the Naboaths, the David’s, the Mordecais, the Urriahs of this world!!!

At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders (attesting miracles) were continually taking place among the people.

the sick and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all being healed.

But the high priest stood up, along with all his associates (that is, the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with jealousy and resentment. ACTS 5:12‭-‬17 AMP

The Lord is leading you out of the box the enemy want to constrain you!

He leads You! And You! Yes!!!

“But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors, and leading them out, he said, “Go, stand and continue to tell the people in the temple [courtyards] the whole message of this Life [the eternal life revealed by Christ and found through faith in Him].”
ACTS 5:19‭-‬20 AMP

Tell It To The King!What Ails You?

Just wondering! How many Naaman’s do we meet daily? How many of us are like Naaman? I mean, we do not have leprosy, thanks be to God! We however have somethings like leprosy, be it an ailment of the heart, mind, body, financial, relational, career wise, that thorn, or that which bounds, a burden, limiting us in one way or another. 

No one knows about this ailment for we have mastered concealing it over time. It is visible even to ourselves only when no one else is present. 2 Kings 5:1 Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the Lord had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy.

How could Naaman have conducted himself, such that no one in the battalion of soldiers and high ranking officers, and the King of the land himself without any hint?

It seems only his wife and the young slave girl knew that this powerful man had leprosy. God must have hidden this from all but few!  How could Naaman be leprose and it is not readily vicible? Not even under his armour, a piece of flesh giving his secret away!

And the slave girl! Well, one day she had to take the wash basin into the bosses quarters. She thought she heard the master beckon her come in, in response to her knock! Alas, there she stood frozen, face to face with the Master just few steps apart!

Her Master! Leprose? It can’t be! Blinking, for her mind was somersaulting within her chest, really! Master! What ails you? She must have asked with compassion! This compassion did not go unnoticed by Naaman, even in the midst of his embarrassment. Compassion from a heart filled with love! Compassion was what stopped her from been sent to an early grave. 

To the many that have stumbled in over the years into the masters quarters, they never lived to tell the tale. Many were  shocked when the executioner came for them, silenced forever from revealing what brought tragedy their way when the blade fell!

This girl from Israel! She saw a man burdened, and in need of a cure! Her Master, nice and always joking around with the little children whenever he was home. The best slave Master in the entire area. Many slaves pray their master will send them over to help for a little while in Naaman’s yard whenever he is hosting the soldiers.

Just one night at Naaman’s house and off to war! Many are prone to wish. Better die a gallant than live as a worthless slave treated worst than an animal.

Friends, what does Naaman’s leprosy represent in your life? God forbid any disease or infirmities in your quarters in Jesus mighty name. What is that thing, that thorn in your flesh, visible to you, yet not unto others? What has bound you, while you walk like a freeman in the society?

What is that thing? That issue, hidden in our hearts eating us away? Broken heart? Broken dreams? Worry? Unforgivess? Insecurity? Greed? Anger? Pride? Envy, and jealousy , amongst many vices.

Tell it to the King friends! As this slave girl faced her master, his shoulder slumped for a twinkle of an eye and the many years of military training set in, and he uttered, tell no one” as he picked up his robe and walked out unto the patio overlooking the lake.

This girl gingerly positioned the water basin well on its stand and walked back out, but she never forgot what she saw. Since that day she looks at her Master differently, her compassion ultimately spoke to Madam Master and the rest is history! 2 Kings 5:3 She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.”

Speak to the King friends! Your healing, deliverance, upliftment, provision, understanding, wisdom, increase, joy, peace, marriage, relationship, and all that you could ever want, most especially, eternal life, is a reach away! Speak to the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Alpha, and Omega!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Just Jesus Devotional: Loving God & Man!

Memory Verse

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37.

Declaration Prayer

God, thank You for implanting eternity in me, a divine sense of purpose.

I want to love You with all my heart, with all my soul, and with all my mind.’ I want to love my neighbor as myself.’ I know this is the desire of Your heart. You designed me to love.

Breathe Your purpose into my soul that I may live intentionally every day.

Show me how to love every person You put in my path each day. I want to bring You joy by agreeing wholeheartedly with others, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

Give me an unselfish heart that I may not try to impress others. I will be humble, thinking of others as better than myself.

Help me look out not only for my own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Jesus, I purpose to follow You on purpose.

Grumbling For A Purpose!Mercy Lord!

Philippians 2:12  Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.  14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

iron-sharpens-iron-and-one-man-sharpens-another-quote-1Okay, Lord! I heard you! I am working out my Salvation with fear and trembling, for it is you my Savior that works in me to will and to act in order to fulfill your good purpose concerning me. Yes, Lord! I don’t want to grumble or argue, I don’t want to complain either! I want to shine as stars in the sky for you said I am a city set upon a hill that cannot be hidden – Matthew 5:14.

Daddy, where has sound teachings gone? Why from your sanctuary? I mean the kind that feeds my spirit man, stirs me to confess and repent of the sins in my life. The teaching that I used to hear and get inspired to speak to others about you. Those teachings that fire me up to reach out to you more! Those teachings that reveal the deep-seated unbelief and doubt in my heart! Those teachings that open my eyes in worship to see the heavens open with angels descending and ascending like JacobGenesis 28:12? Those words inspired by your Holy Spirit that cuts through the barrier evil was and is trying to build in and around my heart! Where has it all gone?

I don’t want to grumble, but Lord, all I hear these days is one man or woman selling something on the pulpit! As one is selling their newest jet, car, house, another is selling the image of himself, herself, her husband, wife, in-laws, friends, and children! Others are selling their newest toys, beauty product, favorite past time, and all sort! Many are yet building a monument for idols in the heart of your people!  You said not to forsake the assembling of saintsHebrews 10:25!

What do I do Lord? What do we do? Many have fallen away. Many flee to a seemingly greener pasture only to find it a mirage! Many are hibernating with the danger of sleeping the sleep of death – for it is just a matter of time, a once blazing coal easily goes out if isolated! Oh, many more do not even want to come to your sanctuary anymore, deceived by the deceiver that it may probably be a joke! Unreal Lord! We, your children, thirsty and weary need you, we need an iron that sharpens iron – Proverbs 27:17. We wanna be transformed more and more Lord! 

On behalf of my brethren and I, Lord, I ask, send help to us. Your work has been twisted to fan the fantasy of man, Father, send your wind! Let your Holy Spirit reignite the fire on your altars, on the altars of our hearts too! My soul is thirsty Lord Jesus, refresh me in your mercy! Be kind to me and my brethren, send us help, yes, from your sanctuary! Raise up Souls on fire by your Holy Spirit that will rebuild the broken down walls in your Sanctuary we pray Oh Lord in Jesus mighty name!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
