Have Faith Persistently

Hebrews 10:35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Do not throw away your confidence

You must be persistent in the pursuit of your divine calling. He who called you is faithful – 1 Thessalonians 5:24. All God’s promise to you shall be fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God

The dream God placed in your heart, the baby in your womb of destiny, the burning desire you cannot seem to lay aside, that is your destiny, you will give birth safely, your dreams and aspirations and all, it must be fulfilled! You will fulfill your destiny if you stay at it in faith!

Be persistent! You will fulfill every divine mandate! Stay focus.

You Are Known!

It was the will of God for Paul to be an Apostle of Jesus Christ according to the opening statement of the book of Ephesians chapter 1 verse 1

Ephesians 2 verse 10 says we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that God created in advance for us to fulfill.

This means God created Saul before the foundations of the world was laid according to Ephesians 1 verse 4. The book of Jeremiah 1 verse 5 also state that, before I formed you, in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Let me state this here for you: Before God formed you, I and Saul, now Paul in our mothers wombs, God knew us. Before we were born He set us apart, he appointed you, I and Paul as prophet to the nations! Wow! Isn’t this something? You can rest assured you are exactly where you ought to be! In God’s WILL!

Friends, the Lord knew you, had a plan for you, a path to walk through, and walk on. Believe it or not, every single detail of you life and mine are ALL for the glory of God’s holy name. The ups and downs, our successes and failures, the mistakes, the highs and the lows are ALL part of God’s plan to glorify Himself in YOU! Read John 9:3

Do you want to tell me God did not know Saul, now called Paul will be instrumental to the death of Stephen and other saints? God is Sovereign friends! He knows! And He works in ways we cannot simply understand. Ephesians 1:11 says God works out EVERYTHING in conformity with the purpose of his will.

This should encourage you to rejoice even now! You are in God’s will, walking the path He ordained for you, thriving, and flourishing like the cedars of Lebanon, proclaiming , ” The Lord is upright; He is My Rock and there is no wickedness in him”. Psalms 92:15

My message for you today is to trust in the plan of God for your life. In whatever situation and circumstances, ask God to give sight to your eyes so that you might see His mighty hands even in the bleakness around and in the sunshine all over you.

God is in the midst of you, you will not be shaken – Psalms 46:5

Shalom!

Advance Prep!

Okay Lord Jesus!

You said to me in Mark 10:27 that ” With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

I have left everything to follow you. I am asking you, “Teacher,” I want you to do for me whatever I ask.”

My request is ” Let me sit at your right in your glory.”

Jesus said to me, ” that I don’t know what I am asking”! Can I drink the cup Jesus drank and be baptized with the baptism He was baptized with?

Even then, that is, If I am able to drink the cup and be baptized with the baptism He was baptized with, to sit at Christ right hand is not for Christ to grant.

I have not even been bold enough to stand for truth, justice, fairness as He want me too, so what cup am I really drinking? What cup are you drinking?

The position, status, eminence, …. Is preordained!!!!

These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.” Mark 10:40

What am I getting at here, there are “things” many of us are striving for, and against, that are already set in stone.

Many things have been prepared in advance of us that we cannot change, bend, override, or overrule. Ephesians 2:10

Our destiny:

The rulers of this dark age can tinker with it but they cannot change it. We must stay tuned up and turned on by heaven though!

Regardless of human maneuvering, what is ordained is ordained! Ask for mercy where you have erred and grace to stay on The Path!

Whatever you are asking for that is not ordained for you, heaven will never release no matter how many mountains you climb and the many sacrifices you are willing to give! You cannot buy your way out, or pay your way in!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

What Is Written Of You?

Jesus said, “But Elijah has come and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him.”

I wonder what has been written about you! Remember that before the foundation of the earth was laid, God knew you and has ordained some certain things concerning you – Jeremiah 1:15 also cross referenced in Ephesians 1:4 and Romans 8:29

Brothers and Sisters, a lot has been written concerning you before you came to be, before you are who you know yourself to be. You should realize by now that your steps are being ordered of God -Psalms 37:23. There is no happenstance, it is ordained. You really must fulfill all that has been written of you.

I have come to assure you that the great destiny God ordained for you before the foundation of the earth was laid shall be fulfilled. You must believe this. You will walk the path ordained of you. And you are walking the path! Rejoice, you are going somewhere!

Everything is working for your good – Romans 8:28, can you not see? Even in that seemingly uncomfortable situation, destiny is being fulfilled. The divine is ordering your steps, working within your misteps, detour, and all stops to guide and guard you into His rest, His best for your life.

You should put a praise on this. Sing unto the Lord a new song. Shout aloud the praise of His Holy name. Rejoice and be glad.

Please note that if you do not have a relationship with Jesus, a personal one, your steps are not in tune with your God ordained destiny.

You need to call upon Jesus today to help you to align yourself with your God ordained destiny. Acknowledge your sins, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23, ask for forgiveness and the grace not to go back into willful sinning. Ask the Lord to be your guide and guard by His Holy Spirit. Spend time studying the Bible and your eyes will receive sight.

Welcome onboard as we all work in tune with fulfilling our destiny!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

It Shall Not Prevail Over You! Luke 23:23

The enemies of righteousness, truth, and justice have been shouting. On the mountaintop, the valley, hills, and plains! Everywhere you go, the voice can be heard “crucify him” in your case it may be crucify her! Voices of oppositions, accusations, and condemnation have been heard ahead of your entrance, along your walk, accompanying you at every turn, and behind you! Friends, be rest assured it will not prevail! They cannot prevail!

Lion

Yes! It shall not prevail for the word says in Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord

The Lord Jesus, your Savior suffered the same faith! Luke 23:1 Then the whole multitude of them( the Pharisees, Sadducees, teachers of the Law, the religious, those living to maintain status quo on earth, with no thought of hereafter – eternity!)  arose and led Him to Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.” 

be-strong-in-the-lord

How they lied and schemes, tailing Christ every step to find him in an instant breaking the law, yet they failed. They however resorted to falsely accusing him. The Lord knew all the schemes, but for the Will of the Father to be fulfilled, He, Christ Jesus obliged their schemes. Jesus Christ allowed it!

Luke 23:21 But they shouted, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!” Mark 15:13 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!” Luke 23:23 But they were insistent, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And the voices of these men and of the chief priests prevailed.

fear not

Today, over your life and destiny, the voice of accusation, condemnation, opposition, and every other strange voice seizes over your life. Christ Jesus took it all, he allowed it to prevail over him so it will not prevail over you and I. Open your mouth and condemn every evil voice speaking against your life and destiny! Silence them! You have the authority and the power to do so in Christ Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Great Destiny-Your Destiny!

“The right experience that will build your character to reflect Christ Jesus does not come natural to us. Remember our nature is of this world, corrupt, self seeking and self gratifying. It is in Christ Jesus that we are transformed daily to be who God created us to be.” ☀️Radiant Glory

Radiant Glory Of Love

You have a great destiny! Embrace it prayerfully!You have a great destiny! Embrace it prayerfully!

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship , created in Christ Jesus for good works , which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Friends, please note that God had plans for your life. You are not here by accident. It does not matter what you are going through right now, it will work out for the good for which God created you.

You see, God had a great task to be accomplished in the future. He then stood in the beginning of time, created and formed you in Christ Jesus as a spirit being equipped to do this lofty future task.

Remember that as humans God gave us free will. You came to earth through whatever means which plays a part in who you are destined to be. Everything must of necessity work for your good even though you…

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!

 

Psalms 25 – Prayer For Days Ahead!

Psalms 25:1 

1 In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.

I trust in you;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one who hopes in you
    will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
    who are treacherous without cause.

Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
    for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
    and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
    for you, Lord, are good.

Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
    and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
    toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
11 For the sake of your name, Lord,
    forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?
    He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
13 They will spend their days in prosperity,
    and their descendants will inherit the land.
14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
    he makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,
    for only he will release my feet from the snare.

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles of my heart
    and free me from my anguish.
18 Look on my affliction and my distress
    and take away all my sins.
19 See how numerous are my enemies
    and how fiercely they hate me!

20 Guard my life and rescue me;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    for I take refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
    because my hope, Lord, is in you.

22 Deliver Israel, O God,
    from all their troubles!

Defence And Shield!!!

Psalms 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. 4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. 5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

Defend your heritage from the wickedness of evil.  Selah

 

The Blood Still Works!

Hebrew 9: 11 But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

 

The blood works! The blood of Jesus Christ works wonders all the time!

Oh, how the devil comes, to see the edge broken so he can strike. The enemy goes up and down looking for that who will step out of line, stretch forth hands to commit evil so it can strike. He forgot the light of God’s countenance is always upon and about all that belongs to the Lord. The Lord will never leave and forsake His own, in the stormy seas of life, fiery furnace of trials and tribulations, in the valley and rough places the blood still speaks.

The blood of Jesus Christ is powerful to save from the strongest foe, gentle to heal a broken heart, flush out demonic deposit in arteries and every organ in your body, pump life into your heart and restore fire in your bones. The blood of my Savior Jesus Christ is a miracle working blood.

Had he known, he would not have permitted it on Calvary’s Tree! Alas, an antidote to all of the wiles of the wicked is here! The blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God made flesh and dwells amongst us.

Friends, avail yourself of this miracle working power. You must be born again! You must ask for the forgiveness of all your sins and ask Christ into your heart. Forsake your evil ways and cling unto every word of God.

Jesus is Lord!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
