Rhema! God Focused!

At a critical point in our lives, when we get a rhema, we often are more inclined to see and apply the rhema to our personal issues rather than God’s Kingdom and will.

It amazes me that this is not the case with the Samaritan woman who met with the Lord Jesus at a well! Her greatest concern even then was about how she can worship the Lord, the sustainer of all lives.

I was surprised she did not ask why her relationships one after another has brought her pain. Why is she unlovable and all sorts!! But rather, she asked for clarification as to where to worship the Lord! She was God focused!

John 4:19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

This woman like the mad man of Gadara – Luke 8-26-39, were vessels of honor that Satan and his demons fight tooth and nail to destroy by all means.

Talk about Jesus Christ himself, Moses, Joseph, Rahab, Daniel and the three, Gideon, Paul the Apostle, you and I. We all are light that shines and darkness cannot comprehend!

Every vessel that are ordained of God for great use will always come under the greatest resistance from Satan, the archenemy of everything God.

Like the Samaritan woman and all the vessels used mightily of God before us, we must learn to be GOD FOCUSED! Focusing on God is the only way to walk on water like Peter, soar on wings like eagles and walk upon our high places.

Seek ye therefore, first the Kingdom of God and all other things shall be added unto you – Matthew 6:33.

When you are focused on doing God’s will, you get victory over all the whiles of Satan.

Stay focused!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

An Onesimus In Us!

In reading Philemon, I realized that we all have an Onesimus in our lives. And we are an Onesimus to some people too! How you may ask? We do not own slaves anymore! This is modern times! Absolutely!

An Onesimus is someone that have stolen something from us! They may have stolen ideals, money, or precious moments from us.

They may have stolen a piece of our trust in people, system, or relationships due to betrayal. They may have stolen our self esteem by emotional, and psychological abuse.

An Onesimus is someone that has chipped away some of our social perception by spreading untruth, gossips, bad-mouthing us or speaking ill of us in our community.

As Paul appealed to Philemon, we must forgive such. Perhaps the reason they were separated from us for a little while was that we might have them forever as brethren, said Paul in verse 15.

Friends, the truth is that we hold grudges against all that have stolen from us. There’s a part that thinks we have forgiven but then, when we remember the action, the pain they have caused us, we realize we still hurt.

The people that we have helped in the past, been a friend to, a confidant, been close to, housed, been kind to, intimate with, when they turn their backs to us, and stab us in the back, it hurts!

Apostle Paul says we should forgive this debt, debt of apologies and restitution that we may never get. This is for our own good. They may have met Paul, Christ Jesus and are on the narrow path while we are still slugging with us the pain they caused us!

Jesus Christ also thought us in the Lord’s prayer to forgive so we can be forgiven Matthew 6:9-15.

This season, I implore us to make up our minds and ask God for grace to forgive all debt so all ours will be forgiven too!

We need clean slate to run this race! May we all find it in our hearts to forgive and receive forgiveness in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Shalom! Shalom!

Sow Fairness!

We often talk about Israel’s slavery in Egypt. Can it be said that what Joseph sowed, he reaped for Israel? For Pharaoh he reduced all Egypt to slaves in their own land for food.

What might have reduced you to a shadow of yourself?

What position are you now that you are exerting authority to reduce others to a shadow of themselves? What role are you playing in the lives of others?

What you sow you will reap friends? It’s the law of creation! What you are sowing now your generation unborn will feel the ripple effect of it! Repent!

Repent now and restitute. It is never too late. Israel ended up being slaves for much longer than the Egyptian were slaves in their own land.

Joseph didn’t have to buy the Egyptian land, he could have given them seed to sow and rightly get a fifth of the produce, but he waited until the people in desperation sold themselves and land for food.

“Power corrupt, absolute power corrupt absolutely”

Only genuine love of God will prevent you from taking advantage of people in their misfortune.

Genesis 47:20 So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh’s, 21 and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other.

We need to learn to conduct and execute our affairs, wedge given authority with tact, fairness, diplomacy, and most especially love.

The Lord is a God of fairness and justice. He always repays!

Shalom!

Supremacy In Him!

Christ is the image of the invisible God. The first born of all creation. For in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers, or rulers, or authorities; all things were created through him and for him.

Christ Jesus is before all things and in him all things holds together. Christ Jesus is the head of the body, the Church; he is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:15-18

Let this sink into your subconscious and no devil, demon, witch or wizard, no principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world will be able to oppress you or keep you in bondage to fear.

Jesus has supremacy over all and you are in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!

Shalom! Shalom!

Jonah! Joan! ….! And You!

Just before this decade walks away from us all, and especially for anyone with a call on his or her life running away from God like Jonah did – Jonah 1:1-3

I want you to reflect and ask for forgiveness from everyone and anyone that your disobedience has cost fortunes.

You see, your disobedience, running away from God was what made that man, woman in your life to operate contrary to expected.

The merchants had to throw their wares overboard. The essence of their journey to Tarshish, their livelihood, wealth, and treasure – Jonah 1:5

You my friend, left a trail of loss, waste, fear, destruction in your path running away from God.

You had the whole picture, you knew what you have done, you knew the cause, you knew you were running from the Lord, and even in the stormy seas you were calm enough to fall into a deep sleep while others ran frantically here and there, afraid, and in panic acted contrarily.

Can anyone really run from God? Why would you think you could? Why put all these people that crossed your path in jeopardy?

You need to ask the Lord to restore that which they lost as a result of your own disobedience.

Oh, you thought you lost relationships? Marriages? Homes? Wealth? Career? Honor? …….?

How about the innocent people on that boat with you? They lost much more!

And the fish?

See! God used everything, and everyone to get you back on track. Instead of being hurt, pained, disappointed with them, be grateful! I say it again, BE GRATEFUL!

Almighty God, Ancient of days, Immortal, Invisible, the All Knowing, Only Wise God. You were there before time and will be when time stops for humanity. Father I thank you for your goodness, working ALL out for the good of your anointed.

Daddy, I ask in Jesus name, that you will restore all that anyone and everyone has lost on my account. Rebuild broken walls, altars, ruins, and fortune.

Thank you Father for I know you have heard.

Let your power manifest mightily in and through US all for the glory of your name alone in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

So shall it be!

Shalom!

Waiting On Grace!

Just wondering how torturous it must have been for Jacob to wait for that seven years for Rachel, the love of his life without breaking rules and sinning against God! Genesis 29:15-30

Honestly, waiting and trusting God for the fulfillment of His promises requires an extraordinary level of grace and discipline that only His love and mercy can work in and through us.

May the Lord strengthen you and I with might by His spirit in our inner man so that Christ may dwell richly in our hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:16

Hold on friends, the vision is for an appointed time, wait for it, for it shall surely come to fulfillment.

I say again, wait for it!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Set The Captives Free!

This just came in! Randomly impressed I believe by the Holy Spirit.

If you can friends, please join me to pray for every man, male in bondage!

Many are in all sorts of bondages, trapped, lost and do not even know because they have been blinded.

Those that are aware and know that they are in bondage do not know the way out!

Father Lord, God Almighty, you said the lawful captive shall be delivered, how much less those that are unlawfully in captivity. We ask Lord that everyone in captivity be released in Jesus mighty name.

Captivity is not limited to prison, many are walking freely, working and engaged in many activities, yet imprisoned in their minds, hearts, and emotion, captivated by pursuits, pornography, strange women, and inordinate affection for strange things.

Many more have lost the essence of their manliness, reduced to puppets by the wicked. They no longer have the drive, the instinct to act like men, to lead, provide, protect, and champion the cause of humanity, and the fruits of their loins.

Raise a war cry friends for the male man to be awakened! To rise up from their slumber!

Almighty Father, save your sons from destruction. Release them from every force holding them captive. Give sight to their eyes, hearing to their ears, let their hearts be tuned to know, so they can call upon you for deliverance.

Set the captives of the mighty free oh Lord our God in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom!
