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!

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!

The Companion! His Spirit!

“If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.

This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!

“I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you.

“The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that’s who loves me.

And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him.”
John 14:15‭-‬21 MSG

Discernment! Two Way Mirror!

The gift of discernment does not only tell you about truth and lies, it also tells you about situations unfolding before you, or about people, what they are saying, the lie and acts put out, versus who they really are. Their motives!

Discernment may be a burden if handled by self! It is a gift of the spirit and should be treated as such.

Discernment also checks the discerning, it reveals to you your own motives, errors or what not. This helps you to treat your own illness – remove the log from your own eyes, and to be understanding, forgiving and less critical of others.

However, being able to smell a lie, see, hear and discern duplicity and inauthenticity a mile away, will alter your action and reaction to a situation. You can see the game playing right before your eyes. It may become difficult to keep a straight face and allow the Spirit to work it out! Ask for grace here!

Jesus Christ knew Judas was a thief, yet He put him in charge of the ministry’s finance. Jesus knew he will betray him, yet he kept him close – John 12:5-6, John 13:28-29, Luke 22:3

If you and I hear what is not spoken, see what is invisible, like an X-ray eye, will we be able to look people in the face? Look at ourselves?

I guess not! Purge, therefore, the evil from within and among you says the Lord!

We all, therefore, need to cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, to help us in the renewing of our minds.

May the fire of the Holy Spirit purify our hearts, body, and soul! Only then can we really be a living sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

When The Fire Falls!

Fire fire fire, fire fall on me. Like the day of Pentecost, fire fall on me!

What exactly can you expect when you #letthefirefall? What is the fire we are talking about? This is the fire of the Holy Spirit, the consuming fire, the wisdom of God, the purifier, the tester, revealer of truth, and much more!

When this fire falls on you, you will never be the same again. Your eyes of understanding will be enlightened –  Ephesians 1:17-18. You will know the truth and it shall set you free from every form of bondage – John 8:31-32.

love in the fire of GodCome prepared to be set ablaze, reenergized, reinvigorated, restored, renew, rebirthed, recreated, made new, on June 8th, 2018, 7pm, at The International Convention Center to experience The Fire like never before. Come and have your heart circumcised for your dominion mandate. 

See you there!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

True Friends Are Rare! None Like Mine!

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit -1 Corinthians 2:14.

Radiant Glory Of Love

True friends are rare! I mean the kind of friend that let you know when you act like a jerk. A friend that knows you more than yourself. How possible is one to know another more than themselves you may ask. Friends, praise you, support you, defend, encourage, comfort, and just love you and want you to be happy.

However, there is a limit to what even the closest, kind, faithful, and loyal friends can be to you at every stage of life. The best of us are prone to error, that is just who we are, our perfection is in Him alone.

TruthI want to talk about a special friend and confidant that I have. He is the truest of them all, constant, steady, faithful, loyal, dependable, reliable, true and loving. 

My special friend does not mince words with me. He tells me things as it is. He has never betrayed me except to…

True Friends Are Rare! None Like Mine!

True friends are rare! I mean the kind of friend that let you know when you act like a jerk. A friend that knows you more than yourself. How possible is one to know another more than themselves you may ask. Friends, praise you, support you, defend, encourage, comfort, and just love you and want you to be happy.

However, there is a limit to what even the closest, kind, faithful, and loyal friends can be to you at every stage of life. The best of us are prone to error, that is just who we are, our perfection is in Him alone.

TruthI want to talk about a special friend and confidant that I have. He is the truest of them all, constant, steady, faithful, loyal, dependable, reliable, true and loving. 

My special friend does not mince words with me. He tells me things as it is. He has never betrayed me except to myself, taking my lies and revealing the truth of it to me -convicting me thereby. Never demanding except to request I be the best I can be, to do unto others as I would like it to be done to me.

My friend act as a sounding board to me sometimes, like when I say something not too nice and I hear it played back. You know what friends? We all have some friends that will nod at every word, agree with any idea just to be in our life. Not this my very special friend and I am grateful for having Him in my life.

My special friend is the Holy Spirit. He let me know that it is Him that has kept my secret secret, so that I do not go around telling tales and reveal others secrets.

My friend let me know when my criticism deviate from constructive to destructive due to my own jealous and envious heart. When the discussion moves from the subject – topic of discussion to the object – the person.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit shall guide you into all truth. John 16:12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”

Do you have this friend in your life? A true friend that will let you know you have deviated from the path of truth, living in error, and show you a way back into the light of God’s countenance. True friend that will direct your path and safeguard you in treacherous terrain. A true friend that stir you to do the right thing amidst contrary opinion, a true friend guarded by truth, love, compassion, justice, and a sound mind.

be led by the spirit

It was this friend that instructed Abigail to make haste to appease David – 1 Samuel 25, directed Tamar to take Judah’s seal, its cord, and his staff – Genesis 38. It was this friend that helped Ruth though in pain, sorrow of heart, to see Naomi’s loss and pain and,  decide to accompany her on a journey to a strange land – Ruth 1. It was this friend, unseen, but His presence was felt powerfully, he guarded Rehab’s heart aright to help the spies – Joshua 2. 

Do you have this friend in your life? You must be born again to have this special friend. You must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, forsake all your evil ways, confess Jesus as Lord and cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth. No better friend than Him!!!!!!

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit -1  Corinthians 2:14.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
