Taking Authority In The Spirit By Faith!

 

Acts 16: 16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.

When a believer walks in the spirit, there will be revelations, what he or she sees, hear, and perceive in the natural will have spiritual undertone because you are seeing with the eyes of the spirit. The spirit of discernment reveals what no ordinary eye can see or mind comprehend and understand.

Paul and Silas saw this “wannabe”, the slave girl “testifying” about them as the servant of the Most High God. She had been fortune telling people in the area for long for a fee for her master, and she is well known. As a visitor, passing by, I would expect that Paul and Silas will be glad someone is advertising for them. She was authenticating them, putting a spotlight on them. However, Paul and Silas saw and heard differently!! They knew the spirit by which she was operating, and knew she was trying to authenticate herself and her master by testifying about Paul and Silas.

believers authority

The bible says for many days she kept at it, following Paul and Silas all around proclaiming, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.”  For many days Paul and Silas saw, heard, and knew by what spirit she was operating, yet kept quiet minding their own business.

Friends, be aware that the enemy is walking around, going to and fro, looking for whom to devour. Our enemy, the devil will not come with blazing fire but gently as an harmless witness, tailing you, an uninvited associate, looking for an opportune time to strike.

I saw a vision once before, of a being with a face of a bird sitting with hands on its chin, seemingly watching someone sleeping. You could see the eyes bloodshot looking on. Why look on? When the bible says the thief cometh not but to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10. It must be the wall of protection God put around His own, so he sat down chin in hand waiting endlessly. He is tailing believers, looking for an opportune time, a time when the hedge is broken so as to strike. Keep your guards up friends, and plead the blood of Jesus constantly! You life depend on it!!!!!

You must walk in the spirit, be alert, and do the needful as the occasion arises. Learn to look intently at those perambulating around you and stop them in their track.

Jesus Christ already gave you authority in Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Use it!!!! Take authority like Paul did and cast out that demonic spirit working with and through them.

Let the Holy Spirit work through you! You can! You will! For He said in Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

Jesus Christ is Lord!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Depart From The Futile Works of The Flesh!

When misfortune strikes an individual, or a collective, we often attribute it to their sin. It is assumed, albeit, subtly, that they may have a secret sin bringing evil their way.  The Lord said this is not so. May we be shielded from all evil. As the mountain surround Jerusalem, Lord surround us now and forever. Psalms 125:2. We trust in you Lord, therefor, we are are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever-  Psalms 125:1.

Luke 13:1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Jesus repeatedly warns in the paragraph above, “unless you repent, you too will all perish.” He went on to tell of the fig tree that was not bearing fruit. This is to teach us that God’s patience is meant to work out repentance in us 2 Peter 3:15.

Luke 13:6 Then he told this parable: A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ “‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’

works of the flesh

The patience of God with us is to bring us to the place of seeing ourselves through Christ. To see how unfit we are for the assignment we are created for and to seek for the guidance of the Holy Spirit to purge us so we may begin to bear the fruit of repentance.

Lord God Almighty, you are faithful and merciful, abounding in grace, be gracious unto us. Forgive us Oh Lord of all our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Help us Lord to depart, to forsake the futile works of the flesh. Enable us to be spiritually minded that your grace upon us may not be in vain. We honor and praise you Lord for speedy answers to our petition in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Understanding Birth Reflection! It Regenerate And Transform!

In Luke 8 Jesus Christ traveled from one town and village to another proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Jesus was accompanied by the twelve disciples and some women who He had cured of evil spirits and diseases. The women ministered to the Lord from their own substances.

Christ Jesus then told a parable to His hearers. The parable of The Sower. He then said, ” whoever has ears to hear, let them hear”. The disciples did not understand the parable and asked Jesus to explain it. This was the case in Nehemiah 8 also, when the book of the Law was read. The people said “Amen”, without a clue as to what it meant until Ezra explained it to them clearly. Only then where they able to receive, digest and bring up fruit of repentance.

Luke 8 10How often do we hear the word of God and it profit us nothing? Some of us have been following the Lord for decades, hearing with ears quite alright, but devoid of understanding. Why devoid of understanding?

For one, the Word of God according to Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

luke 8 18The Word of God is a two edged sword. It is meant to transform, to change, turn things upside down, down upwards. If we have been with the Lord for a while and our heart has not changed, if our minds have not been renewed, even when things around us have changed, then I doubt if we understand the good news of the gospel.

Luke 8:10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, ‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand”.

This shows that we can hear, know about something, yet not understand it. It then will not profit us, for it is only after we have heard, know and understand that what we have heard can nourish and produce fruits typical of a regenerated soul.

There is a difference then in hearing, acquiring knowledge and understanding.

  • Hearing – You can hear without understanding
  • Knowledge – You can know about something without understanding it.
  • Understanding – You cannot understand anything without hearing and knowing.

It is thus, the understanding of what you are hearing and have knowledge about that will yield and can produce results, that will bring about transformational change from within.  

Except we understand the greatest commandment, we cannot be regenerated and transformed to the image of Christ Jesus.

Matthew 22: 36 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.   39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Whatever we are doing, if it cannot pass through this filter unscathed, then it is not worthwhile, it is of no eternal reward, be it paying tithe, worship, activities, service, “working” for God, whatever!!

Father Lord, give us understanding. Help us Sovereign God to understand your every word so that it may profit our soul in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

How Concerned Are You?

How concerned are you? How concerned am I for the house of our Lord that lies in ruin? You have two to ten properties giving you income, investments here and there, I mean you are set up financially for the next three to five generations! You care less what happens to the house of our Lord as long as the status quo is maintained!!! Or like me, you are barely surviving, I mean, you are working hard to put food on the table, keep your head above water, and have a little investment, something for the next generation. I care less if Jerusalem lies in ruins. I have too much trouble of my own to look after, what do I care about the heart bit of God? Is this you? And I? For real Friends?

Matthew 3

This is where Nehemiah is different from you and I. He was saddened by what he heard about Jerusalem – Nehemiah 1 & 2. He was the cup bearer for King Artaxerxes, the King of Persia, the “iku baba ye ye of his days”, the paramount ruler, powerful and influential person. Nehemiah was a creme de la cream of his days. He had risen from been a captive to stardom. He bears the cup for the King of Persia. What more can a man hope for. Nehemiah had it all!!! Why should he care about what goes on in Jerusalem? Good luck to them in Jerusalem would have been his thought if he were like you and I, present day professing Christ followers!

nehemiahbgFriends, you and I are far from been like Nehemiah, who had everything going for him, but risk everything to rebuild the ruins of what was left of his ancestors homeland. What are you doing to rebuild the house of God! What are you and I doing to infuse hope into the hopeless? What are we doing to revive the downcast, bowed down, weighed down by life? What are we doing to encourage the broken hearten, strengthen the feeble hands, share good tidings to the lost? What are we doing about disciplining nations for our King?

identifyNot surprising how we live our christian life, for to most of us, our relationship is “transactional” as Pastor Sunday Adelaja put it, our relationship with the Father of Spirits is not transformational. We are into Christianity for what we can get from God and not what we can do for him, and His people, the soul He died for.

If we care just a little bit like Nehemiah, then we would not stand in the way of the Lord. We would engage every gift, talent, resources at our disposal to rebuild the ruins of what is left of Christianity, Christ followers in our locale, and the world over.  “Ruins” because majorities belief in the community of believers is faulty. Spiritual growth is at best superficial. The word is misquoted and used to back up the lie we live. The true gospel of peace to all is far from our lips!

Unlike Nehemiah, you and I, oppress, beat down each other, withhold good from each other, and God’s Kingdom. We work for ourselves, enriching our pockets, building mega churches with “transactional” Christians in the sanctuary for material wealth and to maintain the status quo. We should have transcended this by now friends. Christianity is beyond social status, title, position, props and speeches to tingle the ears of Saints. Christianity means to rebuild what has been torn down, give hope to people, heal the sick, empower the weak, enlighten the ignorant, build up an army well equipped to disciple nations. 

Friends, do not be a Sanballat, or Tobiah, against the welfare of the people of God. Do not hinder that which will benefit everyone including you, just because whatever!!. Everything does not have to revolve around you dear. God is more than able to raise up stones – Matthew 3:9, Luke 19:40.

God at this time is raising up an army, presently submerged under water. At the appointed time, when they rise up, what we know of , presently existing will be no more, for the flood will sweep the sanctuary clean of all those buying and selling!! This is a revelation for the wise to take note and readjust. His kingdom shall come and His will be done!!!

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
