Creation Is Waiting!

Mark 5:2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue himNight and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.

In perspective, this man must have thought he could not be tamed. He held sway over the dead for he was living in tombs. He was in charge and have been able to scare people off the path, he was a constant hindrance to the people in the area going about their legitimate business, trying to take the path through the tombs to get to one place or another.

However, when he saw the Lord Jesus in verse 6, he ran and fell on his knees in front of himHe shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High GodIn God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”

This is what came to my mind, it may sound unchristian-like but I believe it is of the Lord.

There are individuals, like you and I, even a collective among a collective, in serious bondage, possessed by legions, holding sway among the dead, in tombs yet unaware. They are not aware of the dark that have shrouded their world because the Sons of God have not yet been revealed. Mark 5

When this man saw the Lord he knew an end has come to the darkness in him, however, having not seen the light, he was afraid. This is the only world he has known, he has gotten used to the evil all around. Mark 5:6

Are you a Christian? You reading this? Do you look inward and around, among our brethren, in our gatherings and see a shadow of this man? I do! I see evil daily, injustice, hatred, wickedness, oppression, betrayal, animosity, sorcery and divination sitting in high places and so much more!

What are you going to do about it? What should I do about it? You and I need to come out from among them. We need to set ourselves apart for the Lord. We must be sold out to the Lord, obey his voice in the Scriptures.

You and I, we are the Sons of God that must manifest God’s presence for the light of God to eradicate the darkness that is taking over our families, gatherings, and communities, and ….

I restrained myself from inferring that darkness has taken over The Church, because darkness CANNOT, but it is holding sway right now according to Isaiah 60:2 see, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.

Isaiah 60: 1 says “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

Romans 8:19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Discern? Understanding Heart!

In reading the account of the two prostitute in the book of 1 Kings 3 with one dead son and one living, we found out about the depravity of the human nature. These two women reflects what transpire in the heart of man that can only be reversed, changed and eradicated by the Holy Spirit alone. Only the Holy Spirit can transform a depraved heart.

discernThe human mind will say, if I can’t have that which does not belong to me, then no one must have it. If I don’t have that gift or I can use it, then it must not be used at all. If I am in sorrow, then every other person must sorrow also. If this is of no benefit to my ego, though it is for the greater good of all, I will not permit it. Once I am not happy, then no one around me must be happy. If I am in darkness, then light must not come to lighten the path of those others.

1 Kings 3: 26 Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, “O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!” But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.

This other woman, with the dead son had no iota of compassion for the living, she neither sorrow over her own child but in deception took another’s son as hers in the cover of the night. This is why as believers we need to be sensitive. A lot of blessings have been stolen in the thick of the night when men slept, a lot more are been wasted by our ego too. Christians are been cheated out of heavenly endowment – blessings brought from heaven.

When we were yet sinners the bible says Christ died for us restoring and endowing us with grace and love. Now we are Christ redeemed and wickedness should not be permitted in our midst however without understanding to discern justice we permit what does not please God. It is time for us to stand with God for His people.

Enough of playing Church, with divisiveness in honor in our midst. Creation is waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God while we are busy playing Church. When will we rise up and uphold that which is for the greater good of all, that which pleases the Lord. Justice, love, empathy, kindness, uprooting the seed of wickedness from our midst,compassion, edifying each other, uplifting Jesus as Lord and Saviour?. Only then can we make a long lasting impact in this world. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of unity, spirit of the understanding to discern justice as in 1 Kings 3:11, we should allow Him to help us to bridge the gap in Christendom.

Lord we ask for mercy as your beloved. We have been very selfish and greedy please forgive us. Help us to yield ourselves totally to you in spirit and in truth.Give us Oh Lord an understanding heart. Work in us to will and to do that which is of your great pleasure Oh Lord in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Have a great week ahead friends!

Shalom
