Unclean Lips Sanctified!

Isaiah 6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.6:6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Luke 12:9 12:8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:12:9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Jeremiah 1:6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.1:7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

Psalms 81:10 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT WORDS TO SAY! YOUR MOUTH IS ENABLED AND EQUIPPED!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Separated, Chosen, And Equipped By Grace!

Apostle Paul as we all know him now was formerly Saul, who persecuted the believers of his days – Acts  9:9. However, when the Lord wanted someone who will say it as it is, bold, unassuming, and zealous, He chose Saul! Acts 9:15 But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. 

Set apart

And Paul on his path ran with the Lord’s request with the same speed, zeal, determination, and boldness with which he persecuted the Church. He did not seek validation, nor approval from anyone, he heard from Christ and obeyed promptly!

Galatians 1:11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.    …….    15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, 16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.

 

How often do we get a revelation of Jesus Christ and we end up looking for support here and there to do what we have been asked to do and in the process end up with a distortion or discarding the instructions outrightly? Note that it is you that will have to give an account of what you did with what you have been given! Everyone will give an account of what they received and what was done with it!

pleasing-god-not-man-bible-verse

It is not too late if you are reading this note. Today, ask for mercy and help from the owner of your life. He will help you and give you new vigor! Run with the vision God has given you. Let nothing hinder or discourage you. You were chosen for a time like this.

Just thinking of this, “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb – Galatians 1:15. This is Paul’s words after been instrumental to many believers death, including Steven’s. How can this be? That is simply a good God holding on still to a child who has gone astray, far away from the original plan of God. Incidentally, it is people like such that God uses in an uncommon way, confounding the wise!

EphesianAre you one of such? A murderer? Adulterer? Idolater? Liar? Gossips? Fornicator? Proud? Greedy? Selfish? A product of rape, incest? Whatever, you have dabbled into in time past, and even presently the Lord will forgive, cleanse, and empower you. Have faith in God! He will transform and use you for His glory, all you need to do is to repent, turn away from your wicked ways and with open arms the Lord wait for you, to embrace you.

Will you ask Jesus Christ to have mercy on you today? He awaits that very whisper from your mouth. Call upon Jesus today!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Broken Vessels In The Hand Of The Porter!

You never can tell what God will do with your life. You might have lost yourself, far away from being found, hopeless and left for dead! But wait! At the scent of water, the dead tree will bud again. You will be found! Love will find you! Don’t give in just yet!

Job 14:7“ For there is hope for a tree,
If it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And that its tender shoots will not cease.
Though its root may grow old in the earth,
And its stump may die in the ground,
Yet at the scent of water, it will bud
And bring forth branches like a plant.

How much more you! Beloved of God, purchased with a price, the ultimate price of the blood of Jesus Christ. As long as there’s breathe in you, there’s hope for a change of story for you. You can still be what you are created to be. You will fulfill your God-ordained, heaven designed, angels supported destiny. Decide that your life is worth it and it is!

It does not matter how far you have walked away from the original plan of God for you. You may not know you’ve gone too far, but God knows and He is willing, ready, capable, and committed to ensuring you get back on track. God will never fail you. He only needs you to turn back like the prodigal son – Luke 15:11-32, come home, be reconciled with your maker.

” The Bible NEVER flatters its heroes. It tells us the truth about each one of them in order that against the background of human breakdown and failure we may magnify the grace of God and recognize that it is the delight of the Spirit of God to work upon the platform of human impossibilities.”

Alan Redpath, The Making of A Man of God: Lessons from the Life of David

The Man/Woman Preferred Of God!

When God has chosen you, heaven and earth can do nothing except to oblige. The Lord will order your steps through the mountains and hills, the plains and the rough places for He is the I AM! He will guide you to your desired place.

The I Am will do wonders in your life that will baffle all including yourself. Note that you did nothing to attract God’s anointing, it was His prerogative to choose whom He will, and looking through the Scriptures and history, there’s none called by God without a hitch. For Saul, it was low self-esteem. He was taller than any of the people from his shoulders upward – 1 Samuel 10:23, yet he was so unsure of himself even after having been anointed secretly, and prophesying publicly, he hid among the equipment!

light in the clayNothing can hide you if God has chosen you. The failed marriages of the Samaritan woman did not hide her, it led her to the well that day. I know that there were many married women in that city. Many wives of the Pharisees, Sadducees and the Scribes, but none went down to the well to meet with Jesus. The facts of your life cannot stop you fulfilling what the Lord ordained for you either. Satan will whisper though, he will taunt you no doubt about that! Don’t allow your mind to play tricks on you, neither allow any human to limit you. Fight for your destiny. Resist till the end!

How often have you and I looked at ourselves and think, maybe God made a mistake? Every single Prophet and deliverer in the Scriptures thought so about themselves except a handful. God is not looking for perfection in human character or personality, He looks for the availability of the soul. Unfortunately human look at what can be seen with the eyes. Only the discerning can see as Samuel did and foretold accurately!

St Thomas Aquinas

1 Samuel 10:1- 11 Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said: “Is it not because the Lord has anointed you commander over His inheritance? 2 …………….Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you. You shall go down before me to Gilgal, and surely I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and make sacrifices of peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, till I come to you and show you what you should do.” So it was when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, that God gave him another heart; and all those signs came to pass that day. 10 When they came there to the hill, there was a group of prophets to meet him; then the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them11 And it happened when all who knew him formerly saw that he indeed prophesied among the prophets, that the people said to one another,What is this that has come upon the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets? 12 Then a man from there answered and said, “But who is their father?” Therefore it became a proverb: “Is Saul also among the prophets?” 13 And when he had finished prophesying, he went to the high place.

Be encouraged and ask God to show you a true picture of yourself. Ask God to open your eyes to the secret things that will make a difference in your life, and help you to make a difference in your community like the Samaritan woman. — Culled from Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, May 2nd, 2018.

7 Things That Will Happen When The Fire Fall!

Excerpt from the just concluded Festival of Life in Boston titled “Let The Fire Fall” by Pastor E. A. Adeboye, The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Worldwide. March 23rd, 2018

Anchor Text: Exodus 3:1-5 and 10-11.

Moses was at the backside of the desert. He was a fugitive, running from Pharaoh, and has been running for 40years, he was lonely, and a failure who tried to rescue the children of Israel using his power but failed. He was as far removed from fulfilling his destinies as anyone could be. Then the fire fell and things changed dramatically. For someone reading this moment, in the name that is above every other name, the fire will fall upon you and you will experience a dramatic change.

  1. It does not matter where you are, God will locate you. Moses was located at the backside of the desert. It wasn’t in the church or city. Irrespective of where you are, when the fire falls on you, be rest assured God will locate you.
  • Judges 6:11-23 Gideon was hiding from his enemies, yet God located him there and told him his time has come
  • 1 Kings 19:9-11 Elisha was busy in his farm, while a conference was taking place between God and Elijah concerning him. You could be anywhere and God will still locate you. You could be in your office or washroom, and God will locate you
  • Act 9:10-21 Saul of Tarsus was located where he was. God sent one of his prophet with detailed geographical instructions of how to locate Saul. God knows where you are, your address to detail. He will locate you
  • 1 Samuel 1: 9-20 In the house of God, with the crowd at Shiloh, there was a woman praying, God so stationed the high Priest that day to locate this woman. He saw her praying and her mouth was moving but she made no sound.  I decree whatever you request from the Most High God, you’ll get it in Jesus name

Prayer: Locate me Oh Lord this moment. In this crowd, Father locate me, you located Hannah, you located Saul of Tarsus, please locate me tonight. You located Gideon, and you located Moses at the backside of the desert, please locate me today

2. God gave Moses a singular miracle. It has not been heard before that a fire burned without the bush burning. God singled Moses out for a miracle. I believe once God locates you, he will be singled out for a miracle.

  • Joshua 5:13-15 Joshua was leading Israel to the promise land when he encountered a wall standing on his path. An Angel came and said there will be a way – a pathway through. And there was a way. The wall fell down!
  • 2 Kings 2:1-15 Elijah was about to be taken away by chariots of fire. There were a lot of the Sons of the Prophet aware of what was about to take place. Yet only Elisha got a miracle
  • John 5:2-9 At the pool of Bethsaida, Jesus had the power to heal all, but it was only this man that was healed

Prayer: Father single me out for a miracle today in Jesus name. Something special, miraculous, a miracle of healing, deliverance, breakthroughs, Lord single me out tonight

  1. All of a sudden, God changed this man who has been a failure to a success. when God locates you and singles you out for a miracle, that miracle is likely to be a miracle of success.
  • John 5:2-9 There were multitudes of sick people at the pool of Bethesda and God singled out just one man. The man God singled out for healing has failed for 38years
  • Luke 5:1-7 Peter fished all night and caught nothing. Success is only measured by result. From now on your labor shall not be in vain
  • Romans 9:15 I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy. It is not that we have not tried or we are not trying, success seems to elude us. However, when the fire falls, failure will be changed to success. A big miracle is all you need to succeed
  • 2 Kings 4:1-7 The widow of the Sons of the Prophet in poverty was about to lose her children. Just one miracle paid off her debt and she lived on the remaining for the rest of her days in abundance

Prayer: Father, this very day, terminate failure in my life on permanent bases in Jesus mighty name.

4. Moses was a very lonely man.

  • Exodus 3:11-12 When God is with you
  • Exodus 12:30-37 A man lonely, at the backside of the desert became a leader of multitudes
  • Matthew 8:1-3 A leper who came to Jesus to be made whole
  • Mark 10:46-52 Bartemeaus cried unto Jesus, but the crowd shouted him down

Prayer: Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, terminate loneliness in my life.

5. When the fire burns, the hunted became the hunter.

  • Exodus 12:33 Moses became a terror to Pharaoh. Those who have been chasing you will begin to run from you
  • Judges 14:5-6 A Lion roared against Samson. The fire fell and Samson tore the Lion
  • Judges 15:9-15 Samson was brought bound before his enemies but the fire fell and the ropes binding him fell off
  • 2 Kings 9:1-15 A King sent soldiers to arrest Elijah. The third Captain seeing and making the calculations of the burned remains of the previous captain and the battalion wisely bowed. Your enemies will bow before you

Prayer: Turn me to a terror to my enemies and the kingdom of darkness.

6. The journey to the fulfillment of your destiny begins. Like Moses, God created you for a purpose.

  • Jeremiah 1:4 -5 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations
  • Jeremiah 29:11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. God has a destiny for you
  • Luke 5:8-11 After God located Peter, he singled him out for a miracle. Jesus then went on to say, once I singled you out, no more separation. You shall become fishers of men. It was after the fire fell that Peter became fishers of men

Prayer: Father whatever it is you planned for my life, let it begin to find fulfillment from this day onward in Jesus name. Let your purpose for my life begin to find fulfillment.

7.When the fire burns for Moses, a new dawn began for him, his life was never the same. The moment the fire falls things will change.

  • Daniel 3:1-13 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego went into the burning fire when these youth came out ….
  • 2 Kings 2:1-15 Elisha was just one of the Sons of the Prophets until the fire fell

Prayer: Father let the fire fall for me today. Let a new dawn begin for me

If you want a new dawn, the best way is to surrender your life to Jesus Christ today. Tomorrow may be too late. Let Christ give you a new beginning.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
