Are You Alive? Reflecting Christ?

What are you known for? What reputation do you have? Whatever reputation you might have, whatever you are known for, if you are asleep spiritually, you are dead.

You might have been a believer, a priest, pastor or what not for 40years, if you are insensitive to the need of the souls around you, the need of salvation and care which invariably is the desires of God, you are but a dead corpse. Jesus Christ was very much in touch with reality, He was intune with the spiritual and physical need of the people all through scriptures.

God is calling us all to wake up from our selfish ambitions to the need of the greater good! Just think for yourself for once, examine yourself, do you see Christ in yourself? Any of Christ person reflecting in your character?

I mean, are you a kind person, generous, empathetic, selfless, truthful, humble, passionate about making sure others are comfortable and cared for? Or is it all about you wielding control over, and dominating others?

The message for you and I is “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. Revelation 3:3″ We must shake ourselves loose from the sin that easily beset us. We must strengthen, fan up the flame of the Holy Ghost within. For our hearts is becoming seared. Hearts are dying while still breathing! I can’t begin to mention things, acts, that some believers engage in! Even unbelievers are too principled to go that low!

These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. 4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. 6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3: 1-6

You and I must not step into a new decade with old beliefs, ideas, and behaviors that has not served us well with the things that are of eternal value. They might have obtained for us admiration, accolades, and recognition, some $$ in our personal accounts etc. But all these! Do they have eternal worth?

You know yourself that, it is only that which is done for others on behalf of God Almighty that has significance!

Therefore, we must uproot, and overhaul every limiting beliefs and way of life! We must take hold of truth, love, and humility for this next phase/decade! It will serve us more!

Shalom!

Your Joy Shall Be Full!

“When a woman gives birth, she has a hard time, there’s no getting around it. But when the baby is born, there is joy in the birth. This new life in the world wipes out memory of the pain.

The sadness you have right now is similar to that pain, but the coming joy is also similar.

When I see you again, you’ll be full of joy, and it will be a joy no one can rob from you. You’ll no longer be so full of questions.

“This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you.

Ask in my name, according to my will, and he’ll most certainly give it to you.

Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks!
John 16:21‭-‬23‭, ‬23‭-‬24 MSG

When The Fire Falls! Result!

Let the fire fall! Let the fire fall on me Oh Lord and ignite your Spirit within me. Let the fire of God Most High fall upon my family, Church, Community, and Nation and set our soul on fire! We want to see Jesus lifted high, a banner that flies across the land, that all men may see and know, that He is the way to Heaven! 

Oh that the fire will fall upon us and cause rivers of living water to flow from out of us –John 7:38. Let this living water flow to quench other’s thirst. Bless me and make me a blessing Lord – Genesis 12:2.

a-revival-frank-bartlemanYou Oh Lord!, you are a consuming fire – Hebrews 12:29, Deuteronomy 4:24. And you, Heavenly Father, lives within us by your Holy Spirit  – Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

I pray Oh Lord in Jesus mighty name that your living water will flow out of me to refresh troubled souls, use me to quench the thirst for others. And as a consuming fire that dwells within me, let the fire flow out of me to consume every wickedness wherever I am.

Make me terror to the Kingdom of darkness. Let the dread of Christ in me fall upon every force of darkness as they come in contact with me. Let strangers flee out of their hidden places as I open my mouth and you fill it up with your wordsPsalms 18:44-45.

This I pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
