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!

Authority To Forgive

“But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”
Mark 2:10

Sometimes when we read the scriptures to get insight we miss critical information that can and will transform our relationship, and ultimately our world.

It is a guarantee that offense will come. Luke 17:1. I get it that it’s not a relational sin that Christ is referring to here, however, the fact is we all can choose to forgive offenses.

We have the mind of Christ – 1 Corinthians 2:16, the mind that loves unconditional, right, it’s almost impossible to love if we do not know how to forgive eachother!

Lord, amongst so much choices, and free will you have given us, please help us to forgive offenses so that we can genuinely love unconditionally we pray in Jesus name.

Friends, let us exercise the power we have to forgive offenses. It will do us a whole lot of good, plus, it is the right thing to do.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with us all!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Selfless Love! Interceding!

Mark 2:4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, ” Son, your sins are forgiven.”

Oh friends, pray for the Lord to make you a friend, that will bring another’s matter before Jesus, even if you do not get to bring yours before him.

These friends have their own issues do you know? Of course, they do, for they are human, however, they put their issues aside to lower this man.

To lower down or up your friend before Jesus takes a lot of selfless love. It is this kind that can build up faith and transform lives as this man’s life was transformed. He became a reference point unto all eternity. And these gentlemen? They have crowns of gold and for sure their generation is still living even today.

This kind of love is not common, except bestowed by the Holy Spirit. May the Lord bestow such love on you and I in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Rebuilding! Inside Out!

To change the world, you must change yourself.

And, without self reflection, you will not see the good, the bad, and what need an upgrade.

What you see in others is in you
What you see in yourself is in countless others

To change the world then, you must bring what is inside to the forefront

This is where the change begins
Inside out!

☀️Radiant Glory

Welcome July!

Presenting a transformed you to your world.

I believe being born again means reintroducing ourselves, our new being in Christ to the world.

When there is no difference between us and the world other than the words we speak, then we cannot impact the world, try as we may.

The world knows words are cheap.

However, acting out The Word, seeing a transformed being cannot be explained away! This is what can change the world

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


Change the world one person at a time starting with You! Your good self!

Shalom!

Voices, Vices! Truth!

There are many voices speaking daily to us. We speak to ourselves, and many more speak to us, our spouses, sponsors, children, friends, religious leaders, secular leaders, and so on.

Wisdom demand that we sift through what we hear, and take hold of that which nourishes our soul.

Every and any word spoken that gives you unholy sorrow or is contrary to what God says about you, you must reject right away. Do not give room for such words, regardless of the guise in which it was spoken a resting place to alight in your mind.

What has God spoken concerning you, your life’s situation, and circumstances? What are you hearing left right and center? Just because the prophecy is spoken by all and sundry does not make it The Truth.

You need to remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 18 – all 400 prophet prophesied the same thing and they were all wrong. Measure words with The Word of God.

At a point Jesus had to rebuke Satan speaking through Peter. Matthew 16:22b This shall never happen to you! How many good things, godly things have the naysayers say will never happen to you? Rebuke it!!

Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” Matthew 16:23

By now you should know there are some Peters around you that need to be rebuked, from the pulpit to the bedroom, the statehouse to the classroom, and even in your own head!

Rebuke every voice that is not speaking the concerns of God in your ears. You have the power and authority to rebuke! Use it!!!!

Death and life is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21

Shalom!
