Supremacy In Him!

Christ is the image of the invisible God. The first born of all creation. For in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers, or rulers, or authorities; all things were created through him and for him.

Christ Jesus is before all things and in him all things holds together. Christ Jesus is the head of the body, the Church; he is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:15-18

Let this sink into your subconscious and no devil, demon, witch or wizard, no principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world will be able to oppress you or keep you in bondage to fear.

Jesus has supremacy over all and you are in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!

Shalom! Shalom!

Waiting On Grace!

Just wondering how torturous it must have been for Jacob to wait for that seven years for Rachel, the love of his life without breaking rules and sinning against God! Genesis 29:15-30

Honestly, waiting and trusting God for the fulfillment of His promises requires an extraordinary level of grace and discipline that only His love and mercy can work in and through us.

May the Lord strengthen you and I with might by His spirit in our inner man so that Christ may dwell richly in our hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:16

Hold on friends, the vision is for an appointed time, wait for it, for it shall surely come to fulfillment.

I say again, wait for it!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

You, He, She, It, They, We Are Needed!

The Lord needs it. Mark 11:3

I wonder what it is that you and I have tied down, unused, unapplied, undeveloped, unemployed!! That very thing, skill, talent, and know how?

The Lord NEEDS it!!

Your hand, feet, voice, gait, your very self is needed by the Lord.

There is a very unique space the Lord want you to fill. A task He want you to accomplish. A life to save. A heart to change/touch. A need to meet. A space!

No one else can!!

Yes! No one else is built to fill that space!

You are needed!!

If anyone asks you, ” Why are you doing this? Say, ” The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly” Mark 11:3

Shalom! Shalom! 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!

Receiving The Kingdom!

“Let little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14&15.

Jesus then took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

What then are the characteristics of children?

Children are kind, generous, loving, trusting, moldable, flexible, sensitive, expressive, open, genuine, simple, void of pride, judgement, and manipulation.

Children are forgiving, do not bear grudges, nor gossip, or oppress, they are simply an image of what we need to be in-order to receive from the Lord!

Father Lord, let the child in each and everyone of us wake up to the fullness of your grace in Jesus mighty name Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Abide!

You honestly need to abide in Christ: Abide in the truth of the gospel, and God’s divine presence will abide with you

John 15:4 For as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abide in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me says the Lord.

Get Some Rest!

Mark 6:31b “come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Jesus sent his disciples out in twos to do exploits. They came back, gathering around Christ Jesus excitedly reporting all they had done and taught.

There were other people coming and going interrupting this meeting that Jesus felt it was good to take them aside to rest.

This says to me that in whatever we are doing, we do need to rest. As Christians, after every exploits which I believe is daily, it will be good to cultivate a time alone with Christ where we unburden, and take up his strength.

This weekend dear reader, find time to unwind, rest, breath deeper, and relax in His presence!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Mustard Seed!

You do not know what power that little faith can produce until you plant it – Mark 4:30-32, I mean exercise it!

No matter how small that faith is, it is bound to become a big deal if and when you exercise it!

It can move mountains! You can walk on water with it! – Matthew 14:25-31. It has made the barren mother of children, the lame walked, the blind saw, 4000, and 5000 people were fed with a little lunch pack. Seriously!!

What can that faith of yours in Christ Jesus not yield?

You have to believe and exercise your faith friends!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

No More Obscurity! Believe!

Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, Mark 4:21-22

I don’t know about you friends, but I believe that I am a city set upon a hill that cannot be hidden.

I believe that I am important, endowed with wisdom, talent, skills, and much more to contribute

I believe that I am a pioneer, a signpost of grace and love

I therefore refuse to be hidden or my voice silenced

I have been brought to the forefront to be a sign and a wonder, a testimony

My light shall not be deemed, I will shine even more for the Light shines in darkness always

My sun shall not go down nor my moon wane any more for the Lord is my everlasting light, and my days of obscurity has ended!

Hallelujah! So it is!

I therefore decree in the name of Jesus Christ, every force contrary to The Word of God spoken therein be render of no effect over me and all that is mine.

As wind blows and we know not where it came from, all the forces waging war against me and mine be subdued in Jesus Christ name

May help arise for me today, may the hand that is not of mortals rescue me from the wicked that have determined evil against me and mine.

May the Almighty, All Knowing, All Seeing God frustrate the devices of the wicked that their hands will not be able to carry out their enterprise concerning me and mine.

Gratefully, I bow before you Ancient of days, Lion of the tribe of Judah, gbani gbani lojo isoro, Jehovah man of War, my shield and buckler, my strong tower, helper, sustainer, protector, provider, lifter up of my head, ogbe ni nija keru ba onija, alagbada Inan, ekun Oko Pharaoh, the one that speaks and it comes to past, He opens and no one can shut, you Lord are mighty!

Accept my worship oh Lord!

Friends, you are meant to shine, you were created to give God pleasure! What are you going to do about those things that want to keep you in obscurity?

Take action! Take it to God! He is waiting for your call!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Renewed!Restored!

New Wine In New Wine-Skins

Mark 2: 21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wine-skins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wine-skins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wine-skins.”

We must not continue in the same old ways! There must be a change, a turnaround, a retraction, an improvement, an upgrade of our character to reflect Christ in us, the hope of glory.

We have received of Christ, a character building mechanism in the person of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

So now then, since we have received of the Lord newness of life, let us walk accordingly in line with who we are, a new creation, a renewed being, re-energized, refocused, re-validated, restored, and retracted from every form of unwholesome, unworthy endeavors that does not serve Christ’s purpose.

Declare with me friends, I am redeemed, I am set free from all sorts that binds, I am refreshed, I am renewed, I am re-energized to serve, to love, to honor the purpose of my creation and to fulfill every single dream so help me God.

As you have said in His ears, so will he do. Numbers 14:28

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
