It Is Real! Hell!

When we experience ill health, pain, sorrow, disappointment, betrayal, lack, rejection, oppression and the likes on earth we liken it to hell.  When you are in a situation where nothing seems not to work as it should and you have tough times, it is hard enough but still is not hell. Difficulties of any kind on earth can never be compared with the abode of ultimate torment, where pain is multiplied into infinity.

hellWhat am I saying here? Just that, you cannot afford to go through hard times here on earth and still do not make it to heaven. That my friend is a disaster. Neither should you think because life is good with you right here, how can it not be on the other side. Don’t be like the rich man of Luke 16.

Luke 16:19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’ 25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

eternal punishment

You and I need to make a choice right where we are this moment.  Will it be hell or heaven? Choose ye this day whom you will serve – Joshua 24:15 Will you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today? We all need a savior, to deliver us from eternal damnation. You need to believe in your heart that Christ Jesus is the Son of the Most High God, who himself is God, but became flesh in order to take away our sin. Confess your sins and ask Christ Jesus to forgive you. Confess His Lordship over your life. You are now on the pathway to heaven. Praise God!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

All In The Plan! Destiny Calls!

You know your life, destiny, and breakthrough depends on you following your passion – fulfilling the purpose for which you are created, serving God in spirit and in truth through the people in and around your life. You know the seed of greatness is planted within you, a burning coal, feisty roll of thunder looking for expression more and more. Zeal for the things of the kingdom burns in your soul. You know that you are in the will of God, you know that God is for you, well how come all hell seems to be let loose at every turn?

How come you face obstacles at every turn? Why are the very purpose for which you exist, your message, the recipients, the channel, and circumstances seem to be at loggerheads? Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Very often, you will look inward first if you are like most to examine yourself. You will look at You as a person! Who are you in your core? What do you believe you stand for? Why are you the way you are? What makes you tick? You will examine every aspect of your being. This process will bring so much revelation, your flaws, strengths, weakness, errors and so much more will be brought to your consciousness, and if you are like many that are true to themselves, you most likely will feel inadequate. Please do not dwell there!

If you dwell there, you will be giving a foothold for doubt of what has been written about you and the power of the Holy Spirit who is going to accomplish them in you.  The enemy of your soul will magnify your flaws and inadequacies to discredit what the Lord intend and has purposed to do in and through you.

Remember that God’s intention and will for you is not because of You, this isn’t about you, but all about what God is able to do in, with and for you. It is for His great name! Ezekiel 36:2222 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone.  Quit beating yourself and embrace the unconditional love of God. Do not take this love for granted though! Lean on Christ the Rock in prompt obedience. Stop been afraid! Look unto Jesus!

Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

You are fulfilling purpose even now more than you know.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Come To Him Today!

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Friends, being born again does not mean you will have a trouble free life, far from it. As long as we are in this world there will be something that does not quite sit well in our lives, it is the nature of life itself.

However, the Lord Jesus has promised to give you rest, He is offering to get you to a place where your soul find rest – in His word.  Faith in the Lord does more than guarantee you a place in heaven, it gives you peace even in the midst of storm right here, and makes living a life of victory in all spheres possible. Your perspective changes and you begin to see through the eyes of faith.

Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you this season. He is very much ready, willing and able to meet you at the point of your needs. The question is will you ask Him into your life today? There’s no other way in which we can be saved from the evil in this world except by and through Christ Jesus.

Will you accept Jesus into your heart today? Ask Him to reveal Himself to you through His Word. You will begin to be transformed by the renewal of your mind.

Jesus beckons you to come today!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Good? Bad? Be Rewarded!!!!

The Lord our God will manifest Himself in the midst of His people like we have not seen lately. Are you ready? Am I ready for the Lord’s visitation? Am I ready? Are you friends?Have you been faithful in your charge? Have I been faithful? Are you expectant? Am I?

Luke 12: 47 The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

29fab3c9-d4b1-4c33-a6f0-7b1c8320e969You and I have been entrusted with so much. We have found favor of God, empowered, ordained, and chosen for a time like these! What have we done and are doing with what we have been given? Are you faithful in the little? Are you obedient to the Lord’s commands?

The visitation of the Lord is like a two edged sword. Disobedience will get its reward, likewise obedience. What has been sown will yield and the harvest will be bountiful. What have you sown my friend? What have I sown? Good deeds or bad? The Lord comes with His reward even now!!!!!!!

Please note that it is not too late to make amends as we start this new year, month, week, day, and hour. Repent today, turn on a new leaf, seek God’s face truthfully, serve Him with sincerity, worship Him in spirit and in truth. Friend, be kind and compassionate, look for the good of others and God’s kingdom, do not stand in the way of others, do not be a stumbling block either. Set your heart to be good, see good, do good and sow good, for whatever you sow is what ye shall reap. The Lord will reward you accordingly and speedily this year of the manifestation of His presence.

Welcome to 2017, a year filled with  blessings, treasures, and pleasure at every turn in the pursuit of God’s divine agenda for His Kingdom!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

No matter what you are going through, know this for sure it could be worst, had it not been for the Lord. Will you give your all to the Lord today? Stop striving with your maker, He loves you!

Reach out to Him today for He cares for you! Yes He does.

May His peace be with you today and forever! Amen

What Has The Lord Said? To You!

 

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?

god-is-faithful

Without weakening in his faith, Father Abraham faced the fact that his body was as good as dead- since he was about a hundred years old – and Mother Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God and being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. Romans 4:19:21

Friends, hope against hope, believing that every word written in the scripture that you have received into your spirit is a promise from God and it will be fulfilled if you believe. Trust God!

Shalom! Shalom!

Allow Christ In!

In today’s Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Christ has released an open invitation for all burdened and heavy laden to come unto Him and He will give them rest – Matthew 11:28. “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool – Isaiah 1:18.

Once you answer this call and come to Christ He will wash you with His blood for without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin –Hebrew 9:22 And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. Christ Jesus cleanses us all from all our sins and gives us a clean slate. We become a brand new creation. It does not matter the magnitude of your sins, witchcraft, adultery, fornication, murder, lying, false accuser, evil schemers, disobedience, rebellion, no matter what you have done or not done, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all unrighteousness.

sinners prayer2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.  You and I are brand new, spotless without any sin or traces of it, I mean totally clean and complete in Christ. What a privilege and honor to find love so real, for Christ to die for us while we were yet sinners. Why then my friends will anyone neglect such a great Salvation. Hebrew 2:3 how shall we escape (damnation/judgment) if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,.

Will you come to the throne of mercy today to receive the gift of a brand new life of peace, joy, victory and much more?. Will you ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life today? Friends, remember that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Everyone needs redemption that is Christ Jesus. Go to Christ today to have your sins washed away so you can begin to live a brand new life.

Jesus loves you friends!

Shalom! Shalom!

True Seekers Yearning For God!

Naaman, a Syrian General came to Israel. He was leprous and received a miracle that transformed, not only his flesh but his heart. He realized that the God of Israel is the only true God and makes up his mind to serve him alone. The problem Naaman has is that his boss, the King of Syria worship counterfeit gods and been the King’s right hand, he goes to the temple with the King, Lord when the King bows down to his god holding my hand and I seem to bow down, please note that it is not intentional and forgive me, Naaman prayed. Read 2 Kings 5:1 to end for clarity.

2 Kings 5: 17 So Naaman said, “Then, if not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth; for your servant will no longer offer either burnt offering or sacrifice to other gods, but to the Lord. 18 Yet in this thing may the Lord pardon your servant: when my master goes into the temple of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow down in the temple of Rimmon—when I bow down in the temple of Rimmon, may the Lord please pardon your servant in this thing.”19 Then he said to him, “Go in peace.” So he departed from him a short distance.

miracleThe miracle, signs and wonders unbelievers are meant to see amongst believers, testifying to the goodness of God in our lives are not happening because of many things and the fact that we are standing in the way. We are hindering the move of the Holy Spirit with strife, unholy living, envy, all kinds of wickedness, insubordination, Lording it over ourselves that the Holy Spirit has taken the back seat in our lives and congregation.

There are a lot of Naamans out there, they have heard about the awesomeness of Yeshua and have come in troops, they have journeyed far and wide against tides and perils. In our midst what are they seeing? What are they hearing? The truth of the gospel undiluted and spoken with passion for God’s Will devoid of self marketing and schism?.

Naaman heard about the God of Israel, he journey over and ultimately met with the Lord. He received healing and enlightenment. He was transformed outside in, inward out and declared no other god but the God of Israel. Are we making that effect? Is lives been transformed? Are people really having the conversion experience? Or are we just concerned about the transformation of the bank accounts? Well, that is outwards, that is what eye can see right? What about the heart?

The Lord is waiting for you and I to get our acts together, to position ourselves strategically to receive fresh grace for this season. Now is the time to realign ourselves with the undiluted Word of God in Spirit and in Truth. Enough is enough of distractions and schemes of wickedness rampaging our community. Stand firm and resist, obey the Word of God, the Voice of Wisdom and Grace.

Take action commensurate with the grace received and see the manifestation of God’s power in your life and others. Do not be a Gehazi bent on resisting the Word of God, whose greed and lies took charge, overshadowing the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

Shalom! Shalom!

Good Decision! Repentance!

 

Jeremiah 4:1 “If you will return, O Israel,” says the Lord“Return to Me; and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, Then you shall not be moved. And you shall swear, ‘The Lord lives,’ In truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him they shall glory.”

 

LysaJames 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

Father in Jesus Christ Mighty Name, may I begin to make one decision after another that will bring me closer to you. I want to draw near to you more than before. Help me that I might see wondrous things in your law. Give sight to my eyes, quicken my heart after you more and more. Cleanse thou me from all filthiness in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom!

 

Trusting God!

Where would I be without the saving grace of the Most High? Had not our trust be in the Lord, what will the righteous say? No one by his own knowledge, power and anointing can save himself, no one can shield himself from the fiery darts of the wicked but for the Lord, for His mercy endures for ever.

I-trust-God-with-my-lifePsalms 31:19 How abundant are the good things
    that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
    on those who take refuge in you.
20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
    from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
    from accusing tongues.

21 Praise be to the Lord,
    for he showed me the wonders of his love
    when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
    “I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
    when I called to you for help.

23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
    The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
    but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
    all you who hope in the Lord.

The Lord is kind and merciful to all those who put their trust in Him. The Lord Our God is the Ancient of Days, the Bright Morning Star, the All Sufficient God, the Immortal, Invicible, and Only Wise God. If it had not been for this Magnificent God, where will you be? Where will I be?

And you out there still dilly dallying about making a decision to follow the Lord, I want you to know this moment you are doing yourself a disfavour. Why would you not choose life? Every soul is designed to live eternally, the question is where do you want to spend yours? Heaven or Hell? I bet you’ve seen enough hell in this world, all around is chaos, man’s inhumanity to man abound, minds been taken over by evil permeate every spheres of life. Why would you not choose to be on the Lord’s side? Come to Jesus Christ today! Confess and repent of your sins, acknowledge Jesus as the Son of the Almighty God who has given His life for yours to redeem your soul and reconcile you to your maker. Invite the Lord into your life today, speak to Jesus right now for He is listening. Jesus loves you!

Psalms 84:10 Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,
    blessed is the one who trusts in you.
