Self Examination! Look In The Mirror!

2 Corinthian 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.

This is a call to self reflect, a call I was made to answer truthfully lately. I wonder how many answers that call! It is not an easy call to answer for it lays you bare before your very eyes.

You may see some yuckness, the kind you see in others! That’s right, it’s your turn to weed out all those tares. For while men slept, the enemy came and sowed stares – Matthew 13:25-30.

What have you allowed to creep into you, cling unto you, what is that thing you are romancing?

Help is available to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. The blood of Jesus Christ is available for you today. You know what? It requires realness, genuine desire to be made whole, to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Talk to God, asking for help, and grace! He will not fail thee!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Pulpit! Your Platform!

A very dangerous trend in “Christiandom”, an error, a deviation from what “Christianity”- Christlike living is all about is what the pulpit, Christian platforms are been used for these days. I AM ALSO GUILTY! AND YOU!

The pulpit is been used these days to settle scores with those we do not see eye to eye with. Those not on our “good books”!

The pulpit is used to “Call out” those that we differ with on doctrinal issues. This is causing disunity of the body of Christ!

The pulpit is used to market ourselves, not Christ, as alpha and omega, how awesomely smart and perfect we are.

The pulpit is used to flaunt our wealth, pedigree, and our interconnectionism to the high and mighty of our world.

The pulpit is used to manipulate, oppress, oppose, and suppress others for our own selfish gain and reasons.

The pulpit is used to carryout the agenda of Satan, albeit disguised as “the work of God”!

The pulpit is been used to dissuade and persuade those genuinely seeking The Truth, The Way, and Life that there are other ways, and thus led astray!

Who are we deceiving when we discredit everything the true gospel is all about by eschewing humility, justice, and agape kind of love?

It is time we realize that we are doing more damage than repairing the old ruin, building on the solid foundation which is Christ Jesus. For with every one convert we think we may have “won” over to Christ, many more are been discouraged. Every man’s work shall be tested by fire! See therefore that you are not building with straw.

Lord, many a time I have deviated from your will, oh how I have lashed out from a place of anger and not a place of love. Please forgive me.

I have tried to remove the specks in my brothers and sisters eyes while I have logs in my own eyes blocking my views of myself, clogging my ears to hear you clearly, hardning my heart from doing the right thing, to uphold justice, peace, love, and fairness.

Abba Father forgive me. You have forgiven me much Lord, help me to forgive others.

Help me to overlook the fault of others, thier errors, arrogance and boasting, for it is your grace that has kept me humble and makes me boast only of your goodness and love towards me.

Thank you Lord Jesus for your mighty hand upon my life! As your hand is upon me Lord, no other hand shall be upon me in Jesus name, this I know!

May the light of your countenance continuously shine upon me to guide and illuminate every dark places in and around me!

Lord, would you make me terror to the kingdom of darkness? Let your fire come out of this vessel to devour everything that is not of You! Yes Lord, make me a vessel fit for your use in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Boasting In God!!!!

As-it-is-you-boast-inJeremiah 9:23 Thus says the Lord:

“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
24 But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

25 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that I will punish all who are circumcised with the uncircumcised— 26 Egypt, Judah, Edom, the people of Ammon, Moab, and all who are in the farthest corners, who dwell in the wilderness. For all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.”

There are quite a lot of Us brethren that are so puffed up with our “suffering” for Christ, triumphs, victories, exploit and so on that we have forgotten that we are Vessels through which God makes His manifest power known. Our victories and successes have so much blinded us that we have become to share the glory with God.

Our hearts have become so calloused that we have become the alpha and the omega, all knowing, all seeing mini god!!!! Humble thou yourself now under the mighty hand of God. In your private space friends, is God enthroned?

Or have you and I gone off tangent, in darkness without an iota of consciousness. Are we subverting the work of God – carelessly speaking, acting and living in a way that unbelievers don’t really want to know the kind of God we say we serve. We preach and speak love but hatred and wickedness is our undergarment. Lord have mercy!!!!

God Almighty is Sovereign and rules in the affairs of men. Oh yes, we have mastered some things, we are intelligent and knowledgeable, self sufficient, self made, etc! Where is God in the equation of our lives? Is our hearts really circumcised? Or maybe it is riddled with wickedness, hatred, greed, envy, jealousy, deceit, pride – our nature before Christ found us.

Most High God we come to you today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Cleanse us, purify us and help us to see ourselves through your eyes. Our eyes have been blinded by the deceitfulness of sin.Wash us clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. Please Lord help us in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

We want you Lord to work in Us to will and to act in order for your good pleasure to be fulfilled in our lives. That we might be a sign and a wonder to this world of wickedness. We pray Lord that your light will shine through us to the uttermost part of the earth. Let our lifes, conduct and all bring others to the sheep fold in Christ Jesus name. May you open the eyes of our hearts to see wondrous things in your words Oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
