By Twos! Not Much Either!

These were his instructions:”Take nothing for the journey except a staff- no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off you feet as a testimony against them.” Mark 6:8-11

Jesus sent the disciples out in twos without so much and AND THEY IMPACTED THE WORLD SO MUCH THAT YOU AND I, ARE READING AND STUDYING THEIR WORK, THOUSAND OF YEARS LATER. Verse 12: They went out and preached that people should repent. 13: They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

Nowadays we have fleet of airplanes, Gucci suits, Rolex watches, mansions, gold and silver, large auditorium and all the fleeting things that have taken over this age, and yet demons stare us in the face at every service, the sick line up the aisle, people leave Churches and go home to commit suicide, accursed things are celebrated and evil sit at the gate!

Holy Spirit, enlighten us! Are you here as you were at the beginning? Is Joel 2:28 valid for us today? It was valid when Peter quoted it in Acts 2:17, for we saw the result! Why is the temperature and the beating of our hearts so low? Revive your people! Revive us oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen

We are not seeing the move of the Spirit as we should because the vessels are all together corrupt, everyone is seeking after self, building kingdoms on earth, and not the kingdom of God!

Jeremiah 5: “Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, (put your locale here) look around and consider, search through her squares. If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city. 2 Although they say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, still they are swearing falsely.” 3 Lord, do not your eyes look for truth? You struck them, but they felt no pain; you crushed them, but they refused correction. They made their faces harder than stone and refused to repent. 4 I thought, “These are only the poor; (baby Christians if there ever was such. The laymen, those in the pews etc) they are foolish, for they do not know the way of the Lord, the requirements of their God. 5 So I will go to the leaders, (the Bishops, Reverend, Pastors, GO’s, Reverend Fathers etc) and speak to them; surely they know the way of the Lord, the requirements of their God.” But with one accord they too had broken off the yoke and torn off the bonds. 6…………. 7″Why should I forgive you? Your children have forsaken me and sworn by gods that are not gods. I supplied all their needs, yet they committed adultery and thronged to the houses of prostitutes.8 They are well-fed, lusty stallions, each neighing for another man’s wife. 9 Should I not punish them for this?” declares the Lord. “Should I not avenge myself.

We all should repent of our wicked ways, no exemption. From the top to the bottom, we have all backs-lidded, for how else can we explain what is going on in our congregation? How? With all the gadget, ease, and provision, The Church is not impacting her world!

Jeremiah 5: 30 ” A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: 31 The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?

What will you do? What will I do? I will pray and speak up. speak out about the truth that sets free!

Almighty, All Knowing, All Seeing, All Powerful God, have mercy on us the “poor”, and our “leaders”. Open our eyes to see the effect of our coldness to your will, the vacuum we have left for your enemy, Satan, to fill up. Rekindle your fire within us Lord, set our hearts ablaze, aright and in sync to your will I pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Chosen For A Purpose! You Also!

In 1 Chronicles 19:1-20, we see the result of misconceptions – thinking the worst of people and thier intentions, lack of good judgement, ill gotten advice, lack of wisdom and an evil heart.

 

A delegate was sent by King David, with condolences to Hanun, King of the Ammonites who has just ascended the throne after his Father’s death.

Understandably, Hanun was in mourning, the whole city was hurting, and here comes a delegate, with spices, ointment, fruits and all sort from a formidable alliance.

I would have been glad to see them. Welcome them with open arms, threat them nice and respectfully, and send them back to my late Father’s friend with some figs, spices, freshly baked bread, water in their jar, oil and whatever people gift each other those days.

There was no reason, and there is no readon at all, to be mean to anyone extending an arm of fellowship. There is no reason to humiliate and ridicule someone bearing good tidings, a helping hand. Absolutely no justfication to be wicked to any showing kindness to you!!

How could the Ammonite think hiring chariots and fighters for an unjustifiable war will bring them victory? That is the question we all should ask ourselves as Christian whenever we have issues with one another.

Your anger, hatred, envy, unkindness, opposition, oppression, disrespect, insubordination and all kinds of ill feeling we have towards one another, is it really justified?

We have gone to war with those we should be friends with because of the wickedness of our hearts. We have stepped out of bounds of acceptable behaviour for a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation.

You and I often hire Balaam to curse those whom the Lord has blessed! Yes, we did not know the Lord is with His chosen people. They have just left slavery, multitudes not in royal apparel, yet clothed in the radiant glory of the Most High God.

People weary and burdened with issues, seeking a place of rest, hoping in the kindness, grace and unconditional love of the Father have walked into the Sanctuary, and we raised a war cry against them. We don’t want this sort of people in our midst! Thier presence seems threatening! We cook up allegations, magnify thier slightest mistakes – by our faulty perception. Why so! Why so friends?

The Lord will fight for His people, God always rought the chariots of the wicked. He fought for David against the Ammonites, Goliath, and all his enemies. God will fight for His inheritance.

Jehovah will fight for every soul Christ died for on Calvary’s Tree that we present day “Christians” have hired Arameans against. Those we have used the prevailing issues of thier lives to taunt and reproached. The lost and weary that came to the cross genuinely that we crushed, discouraged and shunted thier growth! The ones we drove out, not because they are selling and buying in the Sanctuary, but because thier little light is revealing our own darkness! Oh yes!! The Lord sees!

Friends, let us all examine ourselves if we are still in the faith. Is yoùr heart aligned with the Word – the bread we eat daily. We profess Christ Jesus with our lips, what about our hearts? Hearts!!!!

Oh Lord God of heaven thank you for your love and faithfulness. Thank you for your Word that is able to reveal the hidden things of our hearts.

Oh Lord God Most Holy, Most High, be merciful unto us your Children. Forgive us Jesus and help us to love you through others. Purge our hearts of every evil, expose our errors and help us to correct our wrong. Holy Spirit have your way in our heart, rekindle a right spirit within us. Set our soul on fire for the work of our savior! Help us Father as we pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

These Times!

These are the end times. The days are evil friends. The good is termed evil and the evil is coloured good. Evil is sitting in the place of good and injustice abounds. We have already been warned and the onus is for every bible believing Saints to watch and pray, holding unto our confession of faith.We must not allow the filth all around us to have a place in our hearts. Deceptions will abound, false prophets will arise but we have to get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in us, which can save us – James 1:21 

Blaise-Pascal-truth-is-so-obscure-in-these-times-45114James 1:22-27 Personified and brought home. We must not merely listen to the word of God, and so deceive ourselves. Rather we must do what it says. 23 Anyone of us who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law (of Loving God, loving oneself and loving others as oneself) that gives freedom, and continues in it, obeying and living by it —not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

26 Those who consider themselves pious, religious-in the light and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, they reveal their folly by the multitude of their egocentric words and their religion is worthless.27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world- keeping pride, selfishness, anger, deceit, gossips, envy, and all sort away, at arm’s length.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name, may your kingdom come upon us and your will be done. Lord have mercy on us and lead us by your Holy Spirit. Enlighten the eyes of our understanding that we might see wondrous things in your word and live by it. May your word take root downward in our hearts and bear fruits outwardly in Jesus name. May we experience transformation like never before. Let your Words root out every unprofitable shrubs in our hearts, that we might bear fruits for many to eat thereof . We ask and receive in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen!!

Shalom! Shalom!
