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!

Get Over It! Self!

Jesus looked at him and loved him.One thing you lack,” he said. ” Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.” Mark 10:21

Jesus sees the pitiful state of our hearts and yet loves us deeply. We hold unto things so much so, that we lose focus of why we are saved. We must not focus on ourselves too much less we become an idol unto ourselves.

This is a call to step out of ourselves, to think, act, and live from the premise of “The collective”, God’s Kingdom.

Following Christ, being a Christian is a personal relationship with Christ, however, it is also for the good of the collective, to bring All people – Nations to Him.

Lord help us to step out of our own needs to look into the needs of others. Many are dying hopelessly Lord, help us to point them to the cross I pray.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Are You Good?

Mark 10:18-19 Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. No one is good – except God alone. You know the commandments:

….

….

Everything is summed up by your attitude, and behavior to others. How kind-hearted are you to the plight of others? How generous are you with what is yours? Your time and resources?

How easy is it for you to acknowledge something nice, and note worthy about another? Do you complement others goodwill?

The Simple things done on a daily basis, your actions and reactions tells of your “goodness”, a reflection of the fruit of the Spirit!

Take a look within, look up, and ask for help! Be transformed

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Receiving The Kingdom!

“Let little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14&15.

Jesus then took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

What then are the characteristics of children?

Children are kind, generous, loving, trusting, moldable, flexible, sensitive, expressive, open, genuine, simple, void of pride, judgement, and manipulation.

Children are forgiving, do not bear grudges, nor gossip, or oppress, they are simply an image of what we need to be in-order to receive from the Lord!

Father Lord, let the child in each and everyone of us wake up to the fullness of your grace in Jesus mighty name Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Permitted, Not Ideal!

The scriptures cannot be broken. Divorce is not the original will of the Father for His children. The Lord desires for us to have unity of purpose, for only then can we really worship in spirit and in truth.

However, due to human errors and persistency of purpose, our forefathers were able to get permission from God’s general to divorce. Since then men have exercised this “right” to divorce women at will.

Many a time infidelity on the path of the woman is non existent and the man divorces still because “variety is the spice of life”.

If you find yourself here, the unspeakable, what you dread has happened, don’t sweat it, our God is a merciful God. I know it is easier said than done, it is a process, and I know you can get there. Ask God to forgive you, because either you accept it or not, one way or another you had a part in the dissolution. Own up to your mistakes and God who sees the depth of your soul will help you to overcome this pain.

The ideal is to ask for restoration. There is nothing impossible for those who believe. God can and will restore broken vows.

You will survive, you will move forward, you will yet thrive in the courts of the Lord. Remember divorce is not a death sentence! Live henceforth to please The Father of mercy. He will sustain you!

As many times as you fall get back up and ask for mercy. Mercy never run dry from the throne, it flows ceaselessly for all situation, all sins, all disobedient, and rebellious hearts that have repented of evil.

On the flip side is to be in a union and yearn for that which is out there. More to come on this!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Stumbling Block! Don’t Be!

Mark 9:42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones -those who believe in me – to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. 43 if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed……

To every believer, Christians who have made it their life’s work to discourage new converts, here is what the Lord says. ” it would be better for you to have a large millstone hung around your neck and be thrown into the sea”.

To every leaders with influence and authority, if you have been a source of discouragement to another believer in their walk with God this is what Jesus is saying to you, ” it would be better for you to have a large millstone hung around your neck and be thrown into the sea”.

It is so easy to use your position and influence as a source of discouragement, for power corrupt and absolute power corrupt absolutely. Many Pastor have fallen into error here and knoweth it not. When you do not understand or have full knowledge of what has transpired, or is happening before your very eyes do not be rash and pass judgement, or speak in such a way as to grieve another’s spirit.

Seek guidance from the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, He will guide you to the truth of the matter and you will save yourself the consequence of standing against God. And if it is of Satan, you will be guided aright. It is a dangerous thing to take a stand contrary to the plan and purpose of God.

Kanye West, knowing his past, and seeing him now proclaiming Jesus as King should be a thing of joy and cause us to ask God to perfect what he has started in him. This is not a time to pass snide remarks, judge the validity of his salvation, the salvation of all that have heard him and have been led by the Holy Spirit to declare Jesus as King, Savior and Master, or ask for proofs, signs, and all sort.

No one who can declare Jesus as King and Lord of Lords without The Holy Spirit. Just like the Holy Spirit worked in you Reverend, Bishop, Pastor, Evangelist to declare Jesus as King, He is working in many that do not look like you and I in our lifestyle to declare thus.

Embrace and do not cause to stumble, do not discourage anyone who call Jesus Christ Savior, King, Lord and Master! Selah!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Against The Work? No!

Whoever is not against us is for us. Mark 9:40

With all the talk about Christians supporting Kanye West and the likes, I wonder what main stream Christian clergy/authority are thinking.

We cannot deny that the Lord has used Kanye West as a medium to reach the very people the mainstream are supposed to have reached en-massed, but have not reached due to misappropriation of our priority.

Many should be reviewing the Works done in the name of Christ to actually see if it was for him rather than satisfying our own ego and maintaining status quo!

Every Bible believer should be happy as Jesus was happy when the disciples told him about someone driving out demons in Christ name in Mark 9:38 to which He responded, “Whoever is not against us is for us.”

Let us also intensify our works, The Lord’s Work to preach the Gospel to all nations and people!

In what way can you propagate the Gospel personally as an individual?

  • Share yourself/your God testimony with others
  • Be real with your struggles and triumphs and what difference having a relationship with Christ makes
  • Be genuine with your walk, don’t be two faced, walk the talk

Shalom!

His Cause! My Cause!

“The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it. Mark 9:31-32

The disciples did not understand what Jesus was alluding to, however, amongst themselves they were busy arguing about who is the greatest much like the competition and argument in Christian circle today.

So many disciple of the gospel today are not conscious of the season we are in, the handwriting on the wall written on walls all across the world seem not to mean anything to the Church establishment. Why am I of this opinion you may ask! How else can it be that we (The Church) are busy building structures, investing in esthetics, and bickering about the mundane, while souls in millions are going to decay even while they live?

We all want to be great, we want to be the first, be hailed, celebrated, feel important, fulfilled, but how can we be fulfilled while the very purpose for which we came into being and called forth goes to rut?

It is time for each and everyone, for we all have influence, not only the Pastors, preachers, bishops, but folks on the pews, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, grandparent, teachers, everyone saved by grace are to serve the cause of Christ Jesus. The first shall really be the last and the last shall be the first.

Leadership, influence is about serving a cause. As a wife and mother, sister, aunt and friend, I am called to be of service. I must always ask myself, “what can I do to ensure the future of my kids are pleasant? What does my friend, nephew, neice, or even co worker need? Am I available, willing and ready to serve? For my kids, I invest in their today, serve their need, guide and guard them so that they can be who God created them to be.

Leadership, position, motherhood, fatherhood is not just to be a title, it is a call to serve a cause much higher than yourself. I remember a time I was overwhelmed by life’s event and then a teenager I was serving was acting up. I was so overwhelmed that I cried unto the Lord. I said here is this gift you gave me to care for, what would you have me do! Please step in and guide my hands, emotions and everything to do it right and that was it. God showed up big time!

I knew all along that it was a call to serve, and acknowledging this before God invited Christ to work in me to will and to act in order for his good pleasure to be fulfilled in the situation – Philippians 2:13

Father help us to genuinely serve your cause in spirit and in truth. May we yearn and thirst for your cause – the salvation and well being of all souls you present all around us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

God’s Concerns! Kingdom Business!

He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.32 He spoke plainly about this and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan” he said. ‘You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns” Mark 8:31-33

I wonder how many of all the professing Christians, including my very self have the concerns of God in our minds! You are right there that we have our feel good activities that we engage in day in day out, year after year! Are these really the concerns of God? Lord impress in our hearts by your Holy Spirit, your concerns and will we pray in Jesus name.

It has been written concerning Christ that he will suffer and be rejected by the very people he was sent to, and yet going through what was written of him, though painful, Jesus uttered no words. He lived to fulfill destiny!

Father help us to be about your business and yours only in Jesus mighty name!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
