He speaks! Are You Listening?

giftGod speaks! Are we listening? His words( The Bible) are the means through which we primarily hear from him. He also speaks through dreams and visions. He has spoken again! He who has ears should listen. We must all examine ourselves! What error have we fallen into? What pact have we agreed to?

The Lord showed me myself, in a place taking care of children, lots of them, more like a teacher in a school. I looked and saw a scene, a boardroom sort of, with men in suit. Then a crash, a break in through the walls. Here comes in, a gorilla, huge, fearsome looking stretching out its hands. The men collectively wrote out a cheque and gave it to the gorilla and it left. 

The men were converging to discuss what just happened when the gorilla returned and demanded cash. In my heart, I was wondering what this was all about. I moved quickly like a mother hen to defend the children, but the gorilla was not looking our way.  

I saw the men carrying bags of money, lots and lots of it to give to this gorilla, still looking on when I woke up.

What is this Lord I asked in my prayers when I woke up! What could it mean? Could it be that the men made a pact with the gorilla and it has come to get paid as agreed? What does the gorilla represent? Who are those men in suits? A boardroom? What is this Lord? Refusing a cheque and demanding for cash means now. It wants to be paid right now!.

What pact could these well-dressed men have made with a gorilla that warrants it barging in on them like this? Many questions have been raising in my mind since then! I have been praying but honestly, I don’t even know how to pray other than for mercy, whatever that means in this situation! 

Lord God Almighty you are the All-knowing, all-seeing, and only wise God. You know what these means and only you can protect and shield the innocent. Lord have mercy on all concerned. Prevail over the wicked and strike evil down among your people in Jesus mighty name. Let your name alone be glorified.

Let every evil pact be destroyed today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Let us not pay the debt we do not owe Lord. Let the blood of Jesus that speaks of better things than that of Abel speak for your children.

Oh Lord arise! Arise in judgment over the wicked. Every tongue speaking guile be silenced. Expose every wolf in sheep’s clothing! Arise Oh Lord! Arise in your wrath and execute vengeance upon the unrepentant evil one I pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Let your  Kingdom come and, your will be done. Praise unto your Holy name Oh Lord! Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!



Dedication And Re-dedication! Are You In?

The invitation has been sent. Have you received yours, my friends? Here it is!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Don’t tell me you don’t have any burdens for that would be a lie! Yes, and that my friend is a burden! Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is need to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ this moment.

truth gets enemies

Are you in the faith? There is a need for the rededication of our lives to the Lord. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.   Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though we may seem disqualified. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

Matthew 28:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


No Longer A Slave! I Am A Child Of God!

Boldly do I declare, I am no longer slave to fear, I am a child of God. I am no longer a slave to sin, I am a child of God. 

Galatians 4:1 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of allbut is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the fatherEven so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.


Friends, be aware though that the enemy will still come to deceive you. He will come through many means to question you. He will ask you if you are sure you are an heir of God through Christ Jesus. Oh, he will surely remind you of when you were a child under guardian and slave to sin according to Galatians 4:1.  

Do not hesitate to declare your status. Don’t allow him to remind you of your past, shut him up by telling him of his future – Revelations 20:7-10

You, my dear one, are redeemed and set apart for good works for Christ’s glory, do not let the devil tell you otherwise! Hold your stand in faith, let their words not find a resting place within you. Rather, sing of your freedom in Christ Jesus always! Give glory to him who sits upon the throne, to whom be all glory, honor, and adoration!

Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so, it is now.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


Insight From The Eyes Of An Outsider Like You!

Hello friends, here are some things I want you to know from the book of Galatian.

Paul is not an apostle through man, but of God  Galatians 1:1. Christ Jesus gave himself up for our sins so that he might deliver us from this present evil age- vs 4. If you live to please men, you cannot be a bondservant, a follower of Christ Jesusvs 10. That means you cannot serve or follow anyone outside of Christ Jesus.

speak truthWhen Paul received the gospel by revelation through Jesus Christ, he did not confer with any man – vs 12. Instead- vs 16, Paul immediately went on evangelizing just like the Samaritan woman in John 4: 5-30 at the well with Jesus. After the encounter with Jesus, she went into the city inviting the whole city to come and meet with Jesus Christ.

What have you been doing since your encounter with the Lord Jesus? How many people, city have you invited to meet with Jesus Christ? We often wait for validation, ordination, and all the protocol and traditions of men endlessly. In the scriptures, every encounter with Christ Jesus broke protocols. It made a bold evangelist out of the most unlikely individualsJohn 4, In Mark 5:19 Christ himself said, in response to the madman of Gadara, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.

characterTherefore, make sure to be led by revelation, by the Holy SpiritGalatians 2:2. And be cautious of false brethren, fake Christians who act as a spy: looking for information to blackmail you, to bring you into bondage. Your freedom in Christ Jesus is of concern to them. They will rather prefer you in bondage for their own selfish gain- vs 4.

Do not yield to their distractions, but continue with your workvs 5. Those puffed up due to their position or whatever need not intimidate you. Stand your ground and you will see that they will come to accept the grace of God upon your life.The Lord shows no favouritism to no man”. His grace is available to all – Galatians 6:6

Anyone concerned about the Kingdom of God perceiving the grace of God upon your life should extend to you a hand of fellowship. If they do not, you should know then, that they are definitely not building the Kingdom of God, but their own personal Kingdom –Galatians 2:9

You are not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. Believing in Christ Jesus justify you! No flesh shall be justified by the works of the lawGalatians 2:16

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!

Live then as unto Christ Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


Caution Against Error!

advocate1Luke 11:33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”


2 Peter 1: 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 3:17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

1 Corinthians 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!



The Delivery!

To be an effective and efficient messenger you must really be willing and ready to take the “hard road” regardless of your personal conviction. The hard road here refers to obeying and carrying out instruction as specified promptly and to the letter. It is hard if you are a logical person who questions everything. I always examine things to “see for myself”, that is to be convinced beyond reasonable doubt that it makes sense.

Though a lot of times things do not make sense, however, if God says it, so be it. David at a point was told to listen to the sound of matching on a mulberry tree. What does that mean? How can soldiers match on a tree, no matter how big the tree is, men are not meant to walk on trees. Well, that is the instruction given in 1 Chronicles 14:15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.

Neither should water placed in jars turn into wine. John 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

Many a time also emotions get in the way of our being effective and efficient as messengers. Love also plays a part in our delivery also. Lack of love is what makes people withhold life-altering information from a potential beneficiary. Lack of love, insecurity, greed, and much more will make us to know a remedy for someone’s ailment and not tell them, or see disaster looming without warning!

Jonah was such! He felt that the people of Nineveh do not deserve to be pardoned. He was actually looking forward to witnessing their calamity. Jonah 4:5 So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

The love of God in our heart will help us to deliver messages effectively and efficiently with the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


A Way To Live!

It has been a challenge to declutter my mind lately! Many times I am not even aware that I have junks all over the place! It only surfaces when the sanitation inspector in the person of the Holy Spirit walks through my mind and heart.

I wonder if my mind is different from my heart! Can someone explain please, cos lately my heart seems to be playing tricks on my mind! Hmm! That’s food for thought! Will come back to that sometime!

I found out that a lot of stuff that I thought I threw out a long time ago were sitting on the chest covered by dust. Alas, having been preoccupied gave me a sense of wellness until the dust was lifted!

Okay, what am I saying here? A while back someone threatened what was dear to my heart. Overtime, with the help of the Holy Spirit, I healed and moved on thinking all was and is well.

At a point it seem what transpired never did. You know when there’s an open sore, it’s painful and leaves a scar right. When it’s totally healed the scar would still remain as a reminder of the sore and it’s circumstances. The scar miraculously disappeared I believed for the longest time! Until..

Until I saw similar circumstances center stage before my eyes. The dust rapidly lifted revealing the old wound and kazoom, the old scar appeared!

I revisited the scene and dwelt there until it dawn on me! Is it really worth It? Especially when the circumstances is unchanged? Should I let the inconsiderate action of another steal my joy? The words of Paul in the book of Philippians reflects an attitude, a way of life that will, regardless of the restrictions placed on our liberty, keep our joy intact. To borrow from Chuck Swindoll’s Laugh Again : What A Way To Live!

Maintain your joy by weighing the importance of what is, with regard to your core,your purpose,and goal. Is it really worth your trouble?

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
