Born To Praise The Lord!

Praising the Lord is what am BORN to do
No power on EARTH or of EVIL can touch me
No! No!
Jesus the Lord has won the VICTORY
And set me at liberty
I’ll praise Him Jesus the Lord
Exalt Him for He has won the Victory
He has SET me FREE and given me NEW LIFE
I’ll exalt Him He’s WON THE VICTORY!!

I will exalt you , Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. Psalms 30:1

Shalom!

 

Depart From The Futile Works of The Flesh!

When misfortune strikes an individual, or a collective, we often attribute it to their sin. It is assumed, albeit, subtly, that they may have a secret sin bringing evil their way.  The Lord said this is not so. May we be shielded from all evil. As the mountain surround Jerusalem, Lord surround us now and forever. Psalms 125:2. We trust in you Lord, therefor, we are are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever-  Psalms 125:1.

Luke 13:1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Jesus repeatedly warns in the paragraph above, “unless you repent, you too will all perish.” He went on to tell of the fig tree that was not bearing fruit. This is to teach us that God’s patience is meant to work out repentance in us 2 Peter 3:15.

Luke 13:6 Then he told this parable: A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ “‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’

works of the flesh

The patience of God with us is to bring us to the place of seeing ourselves through Christ. To see how unfit we are for the assignment we are created for and to seek for the guidance of the Holy Spirit to purge us so we may begin to bear the fruit of repentance.

Lord God Almighty, you are faithful and merciful, abounding in grace, be gracious unto us. Forgive us Oh Lord of all our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Help us Lord to depart, to forsake the futile works of the flesh. Enable us to be spiritually minded that your grace upon us may not be in vain. We honor and praise you Lord for speedy answers to our petition in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

How Concerned Are You?

How concerned are you? How concerned am I for the house of our Lord that lies in ruin? You have two to ten properties giving you income, investments here and there, I mean you are set up financially for the next three to five generations! You care less what happens to the house of our Lord as long as the status quo is maintained!!! Or like me, you are barely surviving, I mean, you are working hard to put food on the table, keep your head above water, and have a little investment, something for the next generation. I care less if Jerusalem lies in ruins. I have too much trouble of my own to look after, what do I care about the heart bit of God? Is this you? And I? For real Friends?

Matthew 3

This is where Nehemiah is different from you and I. He was saddened by what he heard about Jerusalem – Nehemiah 1 & 2. He was the cup bearer for King Artaxerxes, the King of Persia, the “iku baba ye ye of his days”, the paramount ruler, powerful and influential person. Nehemiah was a creme de la cream of his days. He had risen from been a captive to stardom. He bears the cup for the King of Persia. What more can a man hope for. Nehemiah had it all!!! Why should he care about what goes on in Jerusalem? Good luck to them in Jerusalem would have been his thought if he were like you and I, present day professing Christ followers!

nehemiahbgFriends, you and I are far from been like Nehemiah, who had everything going for him, but risk everything to rebuild the ruins of what was left of his ancestors homeland. What are you doing to rebuild the house of God! What are you and I doing to infuse hope into the hopeless? What are we doing to revive the downcast, bowed down, weighed down by life? What are we doing to encourage the broken hearten, strengthen the feeble hands, share good tidings to the lost? What are we doing about disciplining nations for our King?

identifyNot surprising how we live our christian life, for to most of us, our relationship is “transactional” as Pastor Sunday Adelaja put it, our relationship with the Father of Spirits is not transformational. We are into Christianity for what we can get from God and not what we can do for him, and His people, the soul He died for.

If we care just a little bit like Nehemiah, then we would not stand in the way of the Lord. We would engage every gift, talent, resources at our disposal to rebuild the ruins of what is left of Christianity, Christ followers in our locale, and the world over.  “Ruins” because majorities belief in the community of believers is faulty. Spiritual growth is at best superficial. The word is misquoted and used to back up the lie we live. The true gospel of peace to all is far from our lips!

Unlike Nehemiah, you and I, oppress, beat down each other, withhold good from each other, and God’s Kingdom. We work for ourselves, enriching our pockets, building mega churches with “transactional” Christians in the sanctuary for material wealth and to maintain the status quo. We should have transcended this by now friends. Christianity is beyond social status, title, position, props and speeches to tingle the ears of Saints. Christianity means to rebuild what has been torn down, give hope to people, heal the sick, empower the weak, enlighten the ignorant, build up an army well equipped to disciple nations. 

Friends, do not be a Sanballat, or Tobiah, against the welfare of the people of God. Do not hinder that which will benefit everyone including you, just because whatever!!. Everything does not have to revolve around you dear. God is more than able to raise up stones – Matthew 3:9, Luke 19:40.

God at this time is raising up an army, presently submerged under water. At the appointed time, when they rise up, what we know of , presently existing will be no more, for the flood will sweep the sanctuary clean of all those buying and selling!! This is a revelation for the wise to take note and readjust. His kingdom shall come and His will be done!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Dreams, Calling, & Life!!

Job 33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night,
    when deep sleep falls on people
    as they slumber in their beds,
16 he may speak in their ears
    and terrify them with warnings,
17 to turn them from wrongdoing
    and keep them from pride,
18 to preserve them from the pit,
    their lives from perishing by the sword.

job 33 14I had a dream, in this dream I was driving a Corvette, parked it and took out its cover and covered it from front to back as it was topless. Then I and others seem to be somewhere not very friendly and we wisely exited and were on our way to some other place.

Then I saw, someone laid on a pedestal in a bush, field, and was attended to by someone. The attendant left to get something white from an old man’s bag opened by this old man who held it out for this young attendant to scoop the stuff out and it was placed on the person laid out who seems lifeless. This lifeless body was then packed up and carried out of the wooded area into a residential area. As the young man carrying this lifeless body was met by others, he fell unto a grassy field tumbling with the lifeless body.

Romans 1 20Then a cloud descended on all on the field and a thunderous voice from heaven was heard asking “What about the thing I asked you to do? The lifeless body sat up and was answering but I did not hear the answer/ response, then I woke up.

I knelt down and prayed asking God what this is all about. Prayed and was prompted to write it down. Oh Lord my God do not interpretation belong to you? Please give me the interpretation of this and those others I prayed. Grant me the grace to interpret my dreams accurately Oh Lord in Jesus name. Lord let every dream from the pit of hell be destroyed in Jesus mighty name.

This was a dream from November 14th, 2014.

Lord in your mercy destroy every work of Satan concerning I and my friends. Help us to obey you Lord, to fulfill your plan and purpose for our lives. May we not die without fulfilling your plan for us. Give us understanding of the times Lord. Lord, we know you are ever present with us, even when everything seem to go crazy around us, and we cannot find our bearing, please help us not to lose hope. Help us to lay aside everything that has been working against us obeying you in all our ways.

Father, let your power, the power that raised Christ from the dead manifest in us to destroy every works of Satan. Reignite your fire within us and help us Lord. We can accomplish nothing except you help us by your Holy Spirit. Let the light of your countenance overshadow us even as we walk on the path of obedience in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

What Has The Lord Said? To You!

It has been said to me, that I am a city set upon a hill that cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
It has been said to me, that I will not die but live to declare the works of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 118:17
It has been said to me, to remain confident of this, that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Radiant Glory Of Love

Romans 4: 18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Just as it had been said to him, just as it had been said to them, just as it had been said to you, just as it had been said to me! What has just been said to you Joan? What has the Lord Said?

Truth Is In Love?

The human heart and ears accept everything except truth with joy, especially when our wrong is pointed out to us. When you tell the truth to some, you have become their enemies. We must not dilute the truth of the matter just to be in the good books of our hearers! 

Apostle Paul experienced this amongst many others. Galatian 4:16 He asked, ” Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”. This was in the Galatians observation of special days, months and so on. Yet, this can be applied across board.

Friends, the one that tells you, and shows you what you are doing wrong loves you! I mean, if you come out of a bathroom with used tissue hanging out of the back of your skirt, or your zipper is down, and everyone can see your business, you would want someone to tell you right? Why then will you not want someone to tell you that you have become vain in your attitude?

Lord I am asking this day for a friend like no other, true, loyal, and discreet. A friend that will correct me in love, tell me the truth about my oversight, and pray for me. Drive far from me everyone that will sugar coat thier speech around me, tiptoe over my mistakes, and praise my errors, yet gossip about me.

Holy Spirit, let the truth of The Word begin to shape my life to conform to the image of my Lord and Saviour. Jesus Chirst the King eternal, world without end in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
