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!

Praising God In Difficult Situation!

Acts 16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

inhabit praisePaul and Silas, having been stripped and beaten with rods, were severely flogged, and then thrown into prison, yet, they prayed and sang hymns unto God. How could they sing, I mean pray unto God who did not send a whirlwind to disperse their accuser? God left us to be humiliated, why should we sing hymns unto Him? This was not questions, not even a thought for these men. They were too far gone in their faith to consider such! “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; – Job 13:15 must have been the thought in their hearts. 

last-breath praiseFriends, how often do we encounter discouragement in our walk and we lose heart. We suffer for our own mistakes and deprive God of quality worship. May we not be replaced! Regardless of what is going on within and without friends, let us endeavor to pray and worship God, for He deserves it. Do you know that your worship in difficult circumstances is a reflection of the depth of your trust in the Lord? You will make a better witness, and produce a finer testimony than when in fair weather.

john-4_23When you pray and praise God in any situation, God moves, He steps into the situation, for He inhabit the praises of His people – Psalms 22:3.

Lord God Almighty, we praise and worship your holy name. Holy Spirit, help us to pray, praise and worship God in spirit and in truth. May we live daily to worship you in obedience and in reverence in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Taking Authority In The Spirit By Faith!

 

Acts 16: 16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.

When a believer walks in the spirit, there will be revelations, what he or she sees, hear, and perceive in the natural will have spiritual undertone because you are seeing with the eyes of the spirit. The spirit of discernment reveals what no ordinary eye can see or mind comprehend and understand.

Paul and Silas saw this “wannabe”, the slave girl “testifying” about them as the servant of the Most High God. She had been fortune telling people in the area for long for a fee for her master, and she is well known. As a visitor, passing by, I would expect that Paul and Silas will be glad someone is advertising for them. She was authenticating them, putting a spotlight on them. However, Paul and Silas saw and heard differently!! They knew the spirit by which she was operating, and knew she was trying to authenticate herself and her master by testifying about Paul and Silas.

believers authority

The bible says for many days she kept at it, following Paul and Silas all around proclaiming, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.”  For many days Paul and Silas saw, heard, and knew by what spirit she was operating, yet kept quiet minding their own business.

Friends, be aware that the enemy is walking around, going to and fro, looking for whom to devour. Our enemy, the devil will not come with blazing fire but gently as an harmless witness, tailing you, an uninvited associate, looking for an opportune time to strike.

I saw a vision once before, of a being with a face of a bird sitting with hands on its chin, seemingly watching someone sleeping. You could see the eyes bloodshot looking on. Why look on? When the bible says the thief cometh not but to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10. It must be the wall of protection God put around His own, so he sat down chin in hand waiting endlessly. He is tailing believers, looking for an opportune time, a time when the hedge is broken so as to strike. Keep your guards up friends, and plead the blood of Jesus constantly! You life depend on it!!!!!

You must walk in the spirit, be alert, and do the needful as the occasion arises. Learn to look intently at those perambulating around you and stop them in their track.

Jesus Christ already gave you authority in Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Use it!!!! Take authority like Paul did and cast out that demonic spirit working with and through them.

Let the Holy Spirit work through you! You can! You will! For He said in Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

Jesus Christ is Lord!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

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!

 

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!

Refuse To Be Silenced!

Every demonic agent that wants to kill, steal and destroy anything that belongs to me be arrested in Jesus Christ mighty name.
I reposses my possession, every single one.  Everything that has been stolen from me, cheated out off, or lost due to my own ignorance, I take back right now in Jesus mighty name Amen

Jesus Christ spoke the heavens heard him, the dead heard, storm and tree heard him, hell heard him, so also as a seed of Abraham, redeemed by the blood of Jesus, I speak and heaven and earth will hear me, the foreigners shall also hear and flee out of thier hidden places.

Every attempt by the kingdom of darkness to silence me is hereby destroyed by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Danger Of Faulty Foundation!

The danger of building a new structure on an old system. This is like putting old wine in a new wine skin and vice versa. When you want to build a structure, a new one, you do not build on an old foundation, except if its the same old plan.

The most logical thing to do then is to strengthen the old foundation, or rebuild a new one altogether.

In respect of a failing company, it would be logical to examine the system in place, revamp it as needed and, or put a new system in place for all aspect of the business as deem fit.

For my dear Sears Canada Inc, it was the other way around. Who put makeup on a dirty face, without first cleaning it up? Sears did!! Pulling down physical structure while leaving the old failing system in place. I knew it was a disaster waiting to happen, so did many!! Yet, it hurt so bad!!!!

Why was there no alternative to what happened?

Is similarity in your life, family, community, and so on! Are there so much activities going on with little effect and you know so? Examine the system in place! For something new to happen, to take place, the old system of doing things has to change! There must be a shift in attitude, orientation, and mind set, in order to garner a projected result.

Lord, help us! We cannot continue doing the same things and expect a different result. Yes, we are putting aesthetics in place with so much funfare on dripping, sour and sore wound! Lord help us to revamp our system, heal our business, career, life, marriage, finances, community, organization, Church, and nation we pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
