Outsiders! And The Fire!

Ģod is raising up “outsiders”, those the “Jews” of our times have labelled unfit to be used of God.

Outsiders are those that does not fit into the picture perfect image of religion. And Jews? Those are the religious, self righteous bigot of today!

Well! Here’s what the scriptures says:

There was dead silence. No one said a word. With the room quiet, Barnabas and Paul reported matter-of-factly on the miracles and wonders God had done among the other nations through their ministry.

The silence deepened; you could hear a pin drop. James broke the silence.

Friends, listen. Simeon has told us the story of how God at the very outset made sure that racial outsiders were included.

This is in perfect agreement with the words of the prophets: After this, I’m coming back; I’ll rebuild David’s ruined house; I’ll put all the pieces together again; I’ll make it look like new So outsiders who seek will find, so they’ll have a place to come to, All the pagan peoples included in what I’m doing. “God said it and now he’s doing it. It’s no afterthought; he’s always known he would do this. Acts 15:13‭-‬18 MSG

Brethren, look around you! Take a look! Who are the ones on fire for the Lord? Who are signs and wonders?

The Outsiders, once bartered, rejected, abandoned, traumatised, abused, discarded, murderers, doubtful, prostitute, I mean, the once good for nothing walking on the way to hell.These are the souls on fire, ablaze and burning for the Lord now!

The religious, self righteous, picture perfect, law observing, and enforcers? The Holy Spirit may bypass you in this last days! I am being generous here! 🙂

Lord Jesus, be merciful unto us and rekindle the fire on the altar of our hearts. Deliver us from self righteousness and help us to take up and hold unto the righteousness that is ours in Christ Jesus, we pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Share The Good News!

Brethren, there is a group, there is a kind, there are people, that you have been specifically designed to reach, to bring the gospel of Salvation to!

Go out there today, and be led by the Holy Spirit to speak about the saving grace in Christ Jesus!!!

Go! Make disciples of all nation! Tell the good news!!

Many are waiting to hear, for their hearts have been prepared!

“”So then [since they were unaware of these developments] those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with [the stoning of] Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, without telling the message [of salvation through Christ] to anyone except Jews.

But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Greeks as well, proclaiming [to them] the good news about the Lord Jesus.

And the hand (the power and presence) of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord [for salvation, accepting and drawing near to Jesus as Messiah and Savior].
ACTS 11:19‭-‬21 AMP

Discernment! Prevent Errors!

It’s time to start questioning what you hear about others, those words that were dropped in your ears that made you to “hate” on your brothers and sisters, those remarks that have affected your disposition towards them in a negative way!

There are many from the Synagogue of the Freedman, who could not, and cannot stand up against the wisdom the Spirit has given Stephen as he spoke, and you as you live your life as best you can. Acts 6:10

They have stirred up other people against one another. This causes factions in families, Churches, community, and even in nations. A little unwholesome fire kindling hatred and division.

Do not buy into the murky waters of deception friends!

Pray for eyes that sees and ears that hears what the Spirit says.

It wasn’t what Stephen has said or is saying! It is about that which the Lord has filled him with, God’s glory, His Holy Spirit, and power! They could see it, and it’s blinding their eyes!

They do not want to see themselves in the light of God radiating through Stephen!

“”””Now Stephen, full of grace (divine blessing, favor) and power, was doing great wonders and signs (attesting miracles) among the people.

However, some men from what was called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (freed Jewish slaves), both Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and some from Cilicia and [the province of] Asia, rose up and questioned and argued with Stephen.

But they were not able to successfully withstand and cope with the wisdom and the intelligence [and the power and inspiration] of the Spirit by whom he was speaking.

Then [to attack him another way] they secretly instructed men to say, “We have heard this man [Stephen] speak blasphemous (slanderous, sacrilegious, abusive) words against Moses and against God.”

And they provoked and incited the people, as well as the elders and the scribes, and they came up to Stephen and seized him and brought him before the Council (Sanhedrin, Jewish High Court).

They presented false witnesses who said, “This man never stops speaking against this holy place and the Law [of Moses]; for we have heard him say that this Jesus the Nazarene will tear down this place and will change the traditions and customs which Moses handed down to us.”

Then all those who were sitting in the Council, stared [intently] at him, and they saw that Stephen’s face was like the face of an angel.”””” ACTS 6:8‭-‬15 AMP

May the Lord deliver you from every evil alliance. May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened that you might see clearly and understand the underlying cause of what you behold, hear, and perceive! May you not fall into error of stoning the righteous- Stephen, Naboath, and permitting the witch – Jezebel, and tbose of the Synagogue of the Freedman to live!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

So Easy! Falling Into Error!

It is so easy to fall into error! Test every spirit the Lord said! 1 John 4:1

As the Lord lays tables before His own, remember it is in the presence of the enemy! Psalms 23:5

Satan will always table error arrayed as the real thing before God’s children. He did when he took Jesus to a very high mountain in Matthew 4:8-9. Satan showed the Lord, the world and asked Jesus to bow to him.

What revelation have you received? If it contradicts the Word, or requires you to twist the Scriptures- the Holy Word of God, then it is counterfeit. It is not of God!

What pressure, need, desire are you bowing before? What are you idolizing, worshiping, other than the creator? Mammon?

By discernment of the Holy Spirit you will be able to weigh revelations in light of the Scriptures.

Peter had to question Jesus when he was asked to eat unclean animals! Acts 10:9-15.

You need to question what you receive of the Lord!

Is it for the advancement of the gospel, for the good of all?

Or is it for your ego trip, personal gain, self-serving, self-esteem, feel good kind of thing?

May the Lord keep us all from falling into error! Mercy on your chosen Lord!

Error makes false teacher!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Declaration! Make It Yours!

Therefore, since I have been justified through faith, I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ, through whom I have gained access by faith into this grace in which I now stand.

And, I BOAST in the hope of the glory of God. Not only So, but I also glory in my sufferings, because I know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

And hope does not put ANYONE to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into me – you, my friends, and I’s hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to US. Romans 5:1-5

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Turning Point! Faith

So how do we fit what we know of Abraham, our first father in the faith, into this new way of looking at things?

If Abraham, by what he did for God, got God to approve him, he could certainly have taken credit for it. But the story we’re given is a God-story, not an Abraham-story.

What we read in Scripture is, “Abraham entered into what God was doing for him, and that was the turning point.

He trusted God to set him right instead of trying to be right on his own.”
Romans 4:1‭-‬3 MSG
