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!

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!
