Relationship On My Mind! Unequally Yoked!

The Lord knew what effect and damage unequal yoke, alliance with those who do not know, love, and or submit to Christ can and will do to His Children. Apart from the strain of paddling in opposite direction in the same boat, it jeopardizes us as redeemed of the Lord from maintaining fire on the altar. It is a dangerous thing to fall away friends! The pain will subside, the wound will heal by the mercies of God, however as stated in the Open Heavens of November 11, “wounds can heal, but the scars would remain”.

Every instruction in the word is for our good, however in the hardness of our hearts, ignorance, and in many instances due to error, and youthful exuberance – I call this the state where we believe we have “super powers”, believers fall away from God ordained pathway for relationships into outright disobedience.

Deuteronomy 7:Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, for they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods, and the Lord’s anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you.

2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 17 Therefore,“Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”18 And,“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Nehemiah 13:23 Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. 24 Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. 25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves. 26 Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women.   27 Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?”28 One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me.

King Solomon, the wisest king who ever lived was led astray, away from God. This reveals to me that our choices is not based on how wise we are. Solomon loved the Lord and was zealous in his worship of his fathers’ God, yet the desires of his flesh, lust of the eyes led him away from the path of righteousness. At the end of his life, he was deluded, vanity upon vanity he wrote!

The mercies of God is available to us today by the blood of Jesus. The Lord will indeed restore us to him if we call upon him with a repentant heart. He will make all grace available to us to bear our crosses and follow him, salvaging what is left of who we are and transforming it into who we are meant to be.

Nehemiah beat some of the men and pulled out their hair after raining curses on them. There is no one to do that, I mean no one has to do that now, for the situation and circumstances are the things pulling our hairs today better than any Nehemiah could ever do! We must learn to obey God’s instruction!

Father Lord, thank you for your mercies. For bringing us out of bondage, giving us another chance time and time again to live in obedience to your will for us.

Father, we ask that you will heal every broken heart that have come to you in repentance. Restore us to you Lord in your mercy.

For those that are in the middle of the hurricane Lord, show them mercy, speak peace to them Lord for many are hurting and cannot see beyond their noses now.

In your mercy Lord, let the light of your countenance shine upon the dark places and show them a way back into your will we pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

 

 

Respecting The Anointing!

Just a thought in the shower tonight!! In 2 Kings 5, the story about the leprose Syrian general, the slave girl from Israel, and Gehazi. 

If Naaman had not listened to the slave girl he would have remained a leper till his death. He was fortunate to have had a good and approachable woman as his wife. 

Bring the scene to our present day and you will see how futile this would be. Imagine an househelp, maid, nanny, whatever they are called in your locale, making suggestion to the woman of the house of a top general or better still the vice president of a country, governor, or top official!

When Naaman took her as slave from Israel, he never knew God was setting him up to be blessed! God just needed to see his obedience all the way to heal him!

There are treasures in earthen vessels friends, pray for the eyes that sees, the ears that hears, a receptive and obedient heart.

Lord help us to see your handwriting on the wall of our hearts. Help us to see you in every situation. Let us not be a Gehazi, covetous and disobedient! May we discern and honor your anointing always in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Watch “RT Kendall Respect the Anointing” on YouTube

When it comes to the anointing, play it safe. What do you mean you may ask. Every born again person is the Israel of God, joint heir with Christ, either they have the office or not!!!

David was anointed yet was pursued by King Saul, the anointed of God, yet David sinned not against the Lord’s anointed!

Have regard for every child of God, actually, every human, for you do not know who is backing them!

Trust me, it will save us from presumptuous sin.
Lord God Almighty, have mercy on me and my friends. Forgive us for disrespecting the anointing on your anointed, and within us. Help us to be conscious of who’s we are, and who lives within us at all times in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Truth Is In Love?

The human heart and ears accept everything except truth with joy, especially when our wrong is pointed out to us. When you tell the truth to some, you have become their enemies. We must not dilute the truth of the matter just to be in the good books of our hearers! 

Apostle Paul experienced this amongst many others. Galatian 4:16 He asked, ” Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”. This was in the Galatians observation of special days, months and so on. Yet, this can be applied across board.

Friends, the one that tells you, and shows you what you are doing wrong loves you! I mean, if you come out of a bathroom with used tissue hanging out of the back of your skirt, or your zipper is down, and everyone can see your business, you would want someone to tell you right? Why then will you not want someone to tell you that you have become vain in your attitude?

Lord I am asking this day for a friend like no other, true, loyal, and discreet. A friend that will correct me in love, tell me the truth about my oversight, and pray for me. Drive far from me everyone that will sugar coat thier speech around me, tiptoe over my mistakes, and praise my errors, yet gossip about me.

Holy Spirit, let the truth of The Word begin to shape my life to conform to the image of my Lord and Saviour. Jesus Chirst the King eternal, world without end in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Discernment!

This is why I turned from you my friend!! I love you, but I love God more than you! I cannot afford you coming between God and I! It is that simple!!

Radiant Glory Of Love

Love In Perspective

Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere – not twofaced – let words=actionwe are only permitted to Hate what is evil – do not turn a blind eye, dress/paint/cover it up, excuse/explain it awaycling to what is good – uphold justice, do the right thing 10 Be devoted to one another in love – regardless of whatever. Honor one another above yourselves – not just the “high and mighty” – the wealthy, and affluent 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervoras you are not lacking in zeal do not quench anothers fire, do not be a stumbling block – hindering and discouraging othersserving the Lord.12 Be joyful in hope , patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need – not oppressing, ridiculing, or as subject of gossipsPractice hospitality – not just to those we hope to reap from, but to all.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”says the Lord. 20 On the contrary; “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


Just putting scripture in perspective! We quote these very often, believe it, but are we living it? Make amend from today.

Ask the Lord to help you by His Holy Spirit to live by His words!


Father thank you for your faithfulness. Be magnified Eternal King of glory in Jesus name. Amen


True Friends Are Rare! None Like Mine!

True friends are rare! I mean the kind of friend that let you know when you act like a jerk. A friend that knows you more than yourself. How possible is one to know another more than themselves you may ask. Friends, praise you, support you, defend, encourage, comfort, and just love you and want you to be happy.

However, there is a limit to what even the closest, kind, faithful, and loyal friends can be to you at every stage of life. The best of us are prone to error, that is just who we are, our perfection is in Him alone.

TruthI want to talk about a special friend and confidant that I have. He is the truest of them all, constant, steady, faithful, loyal, dependable, reliable, true and loving. 

My special friend does not mince words with me. He tells me things as it is. He has never betrayed me except to myself, taking my lies and revealing the truth of it to me -convicting me thereby. Never demanding except to request I be the best I can be, to do unto others as I would like it to be done to me.

My friend act as a sounding board to me sometimes, like when I say something not too nice and I hear it played back. You know what friends? We all have some friends that will nod at every word, agree with any idea just to be in our life. Not this my very special friend and I am grateful for having Him in my life.

My special friend is the Holy Spirit. He let me know that it is Him that has kept my secret secret, so that I do not go around telling tales and reveal others secrets. My friend let me know when my criticism deviate from constructive to destructive due to my own jealous and envious heart. When the discussion moves from the subject – topic of discussion to the object – the person.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit shall guide you into all truth. John 16:12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”

Do you have this friend in your life? A true friend that will let you know you have deviated from the path of truth, living in error, and show you a way back into the light of God’s countenance. True friend that will direct your path and safeguard you in treacherous terrain. A true friend that stir you to do the right thing amidst contrary opinion, a true friend guarded by truth, love, compassion, justice, and a sound mind.

be led by the spirit

It was this friend that instructed Abigail to make haste to appease David – 1 Samuel 25, directed Tamar to take Judah’s seal, its cord, and his staff – Genesis 38. It was this friend that helped Ruth though in pain, sorrow of heart, to see Naomi’s loss and pain and,  decide to accompany her on a journey to a strange land – Ruth 1. It was this friend, unseen, but His presence was felt powerfully, he guarded Rehab’s heart aright to help the spies – Joshua 2. 

Do you have this friend in your life? You must be born again to have this special friend. You must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, forsake all your evil ways, confess Jesus as Lord and cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth. No better friend than Him!!!!!!

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit -1  Corinthians 2:14.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
