the lamb of GodThe Story Behind The Lamb of God.

Numbers 21:5-9 They spoke against God and against Moses, and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” Then the Lord sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against the Lord and against you. Pray that the Lord will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.

John 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.

All problem is associated with sin. There is a link between sin and fruitless effort, bondage and all sort of ills. Yet the Lamb of God made provision for us by His blood. Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Read John 5:2-14, Luke 5:2-14

Psalms 37:35-38 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree, 36 but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found. 37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. 38 But all sinners will be destroyed; there will be no future for the wicked.

Jeremiah 17:11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end, they will prove to be fools.

We have been exempted from sin and its consequence by the blood of the Lamb. Only if we confess and forsake all sin that easily befalls us. We must forsake sin and everything that is contrary to the will of God as contained in the holy scriptures. Accepting Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior making us joint-heirs with Him bestowing righteousness upon us. Psalms 37:39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lordhe is their stronghold in time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them because they take refuge in him.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

For His Names’ Sake!

Remember that God’s intention and will for you is not because of You, but of Him. It is for His great name! Ezekiel 36:22 “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!

don't quitNow that you know God loves you unconditionally, then you must contend against everything mitigating against your peace, message, recipients, channel, and circumstances. You must wage war against every encumbrance within and without.

I was speaking with a dear brother of mine just yesterday about some things. Having faced resistance all this while, I was beginning to think that maybe I am a bad person! Maybe I am too difficult and all sort I said! I was beginning to internalise what I have been experiencing and this is exactly what the enemy of our soul wants. Are the events, people and situation around gaslighting you? Take a cue from Jeremiah 29:11 

I was able to get out of that phase by the help of the Holy Spirit, by putting the spotlight on Gods’ Will, Plan, Purpose, and desire for me. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Resistance is a ploy to wear you out so your dreams can die and he, the devil can gloat over you.

You have to desperately contend for your life, your message, your purpose, your destiny for it to be fulfilled. You must never lose hope on the journey. Keep taking steps after steps, trusting God even when you do not see any cloud of the promised rain.

Dear friends, continue to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight Proverbs 3: 5 and 6. Every promise shall be fulfilled. Stay focus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Blood Still Works!

Hebrew 9: 11 But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

 

The blood works! The blood of Jesus Christ works wonders all the time!

Oh, how the devil comes, to see the edge broken so he can strike. The enemy goes up and down looking for that who will step out of line, stretch forth hands to commit evil so it can strike. He forgot the light of God’s countenance is always upon and about all that belongs to the Lord. The Lord will never leave and forsake His own, in the stormy seas of life, fiery furnace of trials and tribulations, in the valley and rough places the blood still speaks.

The blood of Jesus Christ is powerful to save from the strongest foe, gentle to heal a broken heart, flush out demonic deposit in arteries and every organ in your body, pump life into your heart and restore fire in your bones. The blood of my Savior Jesus Christ is a miracle working blood.

Had he known, he would not have permitted it on Calvary’s Tree! Alas, an antidote to all of the wiles of the wicked is here! The blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God made flesh and dwells amongst us.

Friends, avail yourself of this miracle working power. You must be born again! You must ask for the forgiveness of all your sins and ask Christ into your heart. Forsake your evil ways and cling unto every word of God.

Jesus is Lord!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Manipulating Facts!

Friends, be cautious with those that will use the facts of your life to justify their wickedness. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!- 2 Corinthians 5:17 You have been transformed and are bearing fruit and your fruit is abiding. You are growing and having impact in your sphere of influence. You are standing for truth, justice, and dignity of others. You are upholding sound doctrine, rebuking evil, a shining light in darkness, a voice for the voiceless and walking uprightly minding the business of the Holy Spirit. You have just become a target for Satan. Oh! How He will rise up against you and bring up your past against you. If you do not stand right before God, you will cringe before Satan.manipulator

Paul and Silas are Jews quite alright and were Romans citizen also. However, I want to direct your attention to Act 16:16 -19. They stood against divination which the Lord was against. Those profiting by it brought up allegations that as Jews they have come to impose Jewish custom on Romans. The wicked will manipulatively use something in your past, the facts of your life to justify to perpetrate evil against you.

Act 16:16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.

19 When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. 20 They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar 21 by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.”

You will be lied against, accused, oppressed and denied your right to freely be and participate in rendering service where you have been planted. Your accuser will unabashedly without remorse spread evil report to solicit support from all and sundry. You have to resist! Vehemently stand, unwavering in your faith, prayerfully trusting God for a without which the wicked will succeed in tarnishing your good name. You must not permit that for if you do not stand for truth and justice, you are standing for evil. There is no middle ground.

Come to think of it, the people of the city had not yet encounter Paul and Silas but this guy was able to persuade them to rise up against Paul and Silas! How many Saints have you been manipulated to ill treat? How many have you manipulated others to kill? When you spread evil/slander about someone, you are killing their character.

Father Lord Almighty, we ask that you will forgive us this day our trespasses even as we forgive those who trespass against us, lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil we pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Herod!!! Repent!

Brothers and sisters!!! My religious family and friends!!! Christians!!! Born again tongue talking fire brand!!! How often have we supported evil in the guise of upholding a creed? How many souls, precious to Christ have we handed over to Satan? We count the 99 sheep in house while Christ Jesus is looking for that one lost sheep! You know that lone ranger? The one lost sheep, blind and can’t find the way home? Yes! That is the one Christ is looking for!!!

When we neglect to stand up for truth, fairness, justice and love, we are giving room to the enemy to steal, kill and destroy like King Herod did with James in Act 12:1-3 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

Oh! How it pleased the Jews, the deacons and deaconesses, Pastors, Prophets, Bishops, General Overseers, bench warmers, lay men and women, you and I that, that trouble maker of a man or woman, shouting “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life. No one comes to the Father except by Him – John 14:6” has been seized and killed.

What a nuisance, loud mouthed, shouting the name of that carpenter whenever we are going to the synagogue for worship and sacrifice! What peace we have now they  must have said to each other!

What peace indeed!! Friends, when you see evil perpetrated in your presence and sit passively doing nothing you are in support and will answer for it on judgement day unless you repent today.

God is about to do a new thing! You have all heard and read about it, but are your prepared? Are your garment washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus?

God is about to do a new thing! Herod is about to be put down for the Word of God to spread like never before. Power is changing hands! There is a shift in the realm of the spirit but are we ready Pastor, Bishop, Apostle, brothers, sisters, lay men and women alike? Am I ready? How about you?

Psalms 19: 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.

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!

 

He Is Unchanging!

Many a time when we are in desperate need for a touch, a special kind of touch from God and we feel its eluding us, we begin to second guess ourselves and God. We wonder why He is delaying in showing up. Why God? Why does things have to be the way they are?
Seldom do we ask God what He is doing? Are there lessons you want to teach me Lord? What virtue do you want to birth in me Lord? Are you in this? Cause I can’t see!!! Give me sight Lord should be our prayers for He said He will be with His own no matter what!! Thank God.

Our dependency should always be in the Lord in good times and bad times. The Lord is good when good things are happening in your life and good when bad things are happening. He is God of the hills and on the plains. What He has promised is never to leave you, never to forsake you – Deuteronomy 31:6, 31:8, Joshua 1:5. He will always be near to you whenever you need Him. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
