Against All! Grace Speaks!

You never know who is jealous of You! Read Acts 5:12-20

Those that should celebrate your deliverance from doubt and unbelief, your healings – emotional, physical, and psychological, may have not wanted that miracle to be yours, because of whatever!

But for God!!! Hallelujah!!!

The teacher of the law, if they were good men should be celebrating the good taking place before their very eyes amongst the people, but…

They were filled with jealousy! They tried to discourage, belittle, and maligne the Apostles!

But God?

He will always show up for You!!

Watch out, for as it was, so is, so shall it be!

There will always be those that will work relentlessly to douse your fire, your spark!

I found out that those with what seemingly looks “small” are not envious or jealous, they are content, while striving for more!

But those seemingly with ‘all’? Never content, never satisfied, always wanting to grab from the Naboaths, the David’s, the Mordecais, the Urriahs of this world!!!

At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders (attesting miracles) were continually taking place among the people.

the sick and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all being healed.

But the high priest stood up, along with all his associates (that is, the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with jealousy and resentment. ACTS 5:12‭-‬17 AMP

The Lord is leading you out of the box the enemy want to constrain you!

He leads You! And You! Yes!!!

“But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors, and leading them out, he said, “Go, stand and continue to tell the people in the temple [courtyards] the whole message of this Life [the eternal life revealed by Christ and found through faith in Him].”
ACTS 5:19‭-‬20 AMP

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Joy Of His Presence!

Have you been asked why you are joyful? Or maybe, you know someone who is been watched to see if they are quite right “upstairs”!

You see friends, real joy is dependent on who you have in you! Mr and Mrs insecurity, envy, jealousy, hatred, greed, hypocrisy, wickedness and many more will always, always drive joy away from you!

They always encourage you to compare yourself to the Jones’s and the Stewards. They will always point out how luscious the hair of Mrs Jones is, and her nails. How beautiful the Stewards’ cats are! And how the sun seem to shine on your roof top better than theirs!

What am I saying here? Every single one of us has something going for us that could be our neighbors prayer point and vis a vis!

To each of us a measure of blessings has been given by God. Be thankful, be grateful, and stay with God truthfully, for only then can your joy be sustained.

If you notice that when you see a sister or brother smiling, dancing, celebrating, joyful or what not, you suddenly feel unhappy and sad, please check yourself into the clinic of the Holy Spirit! Let him flush that demon out fast!!

Many times, I’ve had to check myself in there for such and many more like anger, and impure thought! The Holy spirit will always point out to you when you are speaking or reacting from a place of envy, jealousy, insecurity, arrogance and the likes.

Do yourself a favor to listen and ask God to forgive you or else your joy will deflate like a balloon.

Holy Spirit, spirit of the Most High God, thank you for guiding us into all truth. Thank you for revelation knowledge. You alone knows what we are struggling with individually. Help us to overcome our shortcomings, and to overlook others high handedness / shortcomings.

Lord let your love fill and purify our hearts in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Grace of God!

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. There is no insignificant sin! Sin is Sin period!

To some friends out there with self righteous attitude towards those that have come to the Lord like the republican did to have their sins washed away. Note that the republican went away with joy while the Pharisee went home void of real joy. I’d rather be like the republican than be a self righteous bigot.

Please note that you are standing in judgement against the Most High God himself. You are making light of the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree. 

We all should be working together with the Holy Spirit in us to win more sinners into the kingdom, not push the saints in house back to the world. The Lord will require of you every single soul you put a stumbling block on their path. Repent! Repent! Repent! The axe is laid already to every tree that is not bearing fruits unto righteousness in Jesus Christ.

Had Ananias been like you and I, I doubt if Saul, turned Paul would have been able to write those books that we all quote and misquote to justify our “self righteous act”. You were a sinner saved by grace don’t stand in place of a judge for you are not qualified to judge.

Lord I come to you with my friends today to ask for forgiveness in Jesus name. Lord have mercy and deliver us from self righteousness. Let your Holy Spirit work in us to will and to act in order for you to fulfill your good pleasure concerning us in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Love you tonnes friends!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Is That You? Troubler Of My Life!!!!!!!!!

levelofperception-326x235The irony of life.  1 Kings 18:16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?” 

This is King Ahab speaking to Prophet Elijah. How often that we see our helper, deliver, solace comfort as troublers of our soul.The wicked King that has brought evil upon the Kingdom, calls he whom the Lord has sent with good news – Elijah troubler of Israel!  Who is troubling who?  How often are we blinded by our own wickedness, greed, self righteousness, envy, jealousy, hatred of self and others to see the good God in his mercy has sent to us in whatever form they may come.

God put treasures in earthen vessels, I presume to ensure only the discerning and wise will see, take, and possess with joy. Pearls are not meant for swine! 2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us – KJV. NIV stated it this way,  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Jesus Christ our Lord was said to be possessed by Beelzebul by the religious authority of his time. His family said He was out of his mind. What is that? Good is been spoken of as evil while evil walks the isle with applause and admiration like the new law in my next door neighbors land down south.

Mark 3: 20 Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. 21 When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”23 So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. 27 In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house. 28 Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” 30 He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.”

What good has God brought to you and I, across our part that we have looked upon with disdain? That man, woman, child, brother, sister, business, family, gift, organization etc that we have been brought in contact with just might be the solution to that pressing issue/issues that you have. That issue you have that no one knows about but God. Jesus Christ came to his own to save them, they had been looking forward to his coming but failed to see him as he is,  the Savior.

Have you disdainfully looked upon people and the many blessings of God in your life? Will you seek God’s face in prayer of praise, thanksgiving and forgiveness today. Ask for clarity so your eyes can be open to behold the beauty and glory of God as He want you to see. Ask for a seeing eye to begin to see the treasures in the vessels God placed in and around your life.

May the eyes of our understanding be opened to see clearly depth of insight in your word oh Lord in Jesus name. May our ears be opened to hear clearly your instructions and our hearts be receptive to receive of you Lord. May our spirit be energized to obey and do that which is of your great pleasure in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen
