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!

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

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Turning Point! Faith

So how do we fit what we know of Abraham, our first father in the faith, into this new way of looking at things?

If Abraham, by what he did for God, got God to approve him, he could certainly have taken credit for it. But the story we’re given is a God-story, not an Abraham-story.

What we read in Scripture is, “Abraham entered into what God was doing for him, and that was the turning point.

He trusted God to set him right instead of trying to be right on his own.”

Confidence IN Him!

I am confident, courageous, bold, and beautiful! I am creative, smart, wise, and kindhearted! I have an excellent Spirit, speak excellently because I have an awesome God!

Is this your confession? Make it yours today friends! He loves you with an everlasting love!

I have a God who looked past what I know of myself, and sees beyond my frailty, weakness, and inadequacies!

He reached down and lifted me out of the miry clay where I had made myself comfortable! God yanked me off that recliner and turned my eyes to see the burning bush not consumed!

He is Jehovah, El Roi, Eloah ‘Asah, my God and Savior, unchanging changer! I don’t know about you friends, but I do have to put a praise on!

Look at yourself my friend! See what God is making of all situation since you put IT in His hands! See the peace and joy that floods your being!

Praise the Lord with a dance! Shout from the mountain top! The Lord is good and His mercies endures forever!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Intimacy! He Knows You!All Nation!

Nothing is as soothing and calming to your soul as a being than to know that you are known, inside out and loved all the same. Your imperfection, weaknesses, inadequacies, all your shortcomings and much more is what qualifies you to be who you are! If you are without all those squirms, you actually are not qualified for a touch from him, Christ Jesus. 

textgram_1536146280321811886.pngChrist came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel first, he gave the command to take away all squirms. Matthew 10: 5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Last Testament – Christ Jesus also said in Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 1Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Friends, He knows you! Jesus knows you deeply! He knows all about you and factored you in before the foundation of the world was made. In all ramification, you are washed cleaned by his blood! You are made whole and complete in Christ – Colossians 2:10 

Are you a Jew or a Gentile? All nation are called, all with physical, emotional, mental, relational and all sort of infirmities are called! This is the gospel!

Those that know this must proclaim so that those others will hear and come! John 10:14 I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also.

Psalms 139:1 You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Knowing Him!

A bystander said, “Master, will only a few be saved?”

He said, “Whether few or many is none of your business. Put your mind on your life with God.

The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention. A lot of you are going to assume that you’ll sit down to God’s salvation banquet just because you’ve been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives.

Well, one day you’re going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you’ll find the door locked and the Master saying, ‘Sorry, you’re not on my guest list.’ “You’ll protest, ‘But we’ve known you all our lives!’ only to be interrupted with his abrupt,

‘Your kind of knowing can hardly be called knowing. You don’t know the first thing about me.’ “That’s when you’ll find yourselves out in the cold, strangers to grace.

You’ll watch Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets march into God’s kingdom.

You’ll watch outsiders stream in from east, west, north, and south and sit down at the table of God’s kingdom. And all the time you’ll be outside looking in—and wondering what happened.

This is the Great Reversal: the last in line put at the head of the line, and the so-called first ending up last.”
