Jonah! Joan! ….! And You!

Just before this decade walks away from us all, and especially for anyone with a call on his or her life running away from God like Jonah did – Jonah 1:1-3

I want you to reflect and ask for forgiveness from everyone and anyone that your disobedience has cost fortunes.

You see, your disobedience, running away from God was what made that man, woman in your life to operate contrary to expected.

The merchants had to throw their wares overboard. The essence of their journey to Tarshish, their livelihood, wealth, and treasure – Jonah 1:5

You my friend, left a trail of loss, waste, fear, destruction in your path running away from God.

You had the whole picture, you knew what you have done, you knew the cause, you knew you were running from the Lord, and even in the stormy seas you were calm enough to fall into a deep sleep while others ran frantically here and there, afraid, and in panic acted contrarily.

Can anyone really run from God? Why would you think you could? Why put all these people that crossed your path in jeopardy?

You need to ask the Lord to restore that which they lost as a result of your own disobedience.

Oh, you thought you lost relationships? Marriages? Homes? Wealth? Career? Honor? …….?

How about the innocent people on that boat with you? They lost much more!

And the fish?

See! God used everything, and everyone to get you back on track. Instead of being hurt, pained, disappointed with them, be grateful! I say it again, BE GRATEFUL!

Almighty God, Ancient of days, Immortal, Invisible, the All Knowing, Only Wise God. You were there before time and will be when time stops for humanity. Father I thank you for your goodness, working ALL out for the good of your anointed.

Daddy, I ask in Jesus name, that you will restore all that anyone and everyone has lost on my account. Rebuild broken walls, altars, ruins, and fortune.

Thank you Father for I know you have heard.

Let your power manifest mightily in and through US all for the glory of your name alone in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

So shall it be!


Respecting The Anointing!

Just a thought in the shower tonight!! In 2 Kings 5, the story about the leprose Syrian general, the slave girl from Israel, and Gehazi. 

If Naaman had not listened to the slave girl he would have remained a leper till his death. He was fortunate to have had a good and approachable woman as his wife. 

Bring the scene to our present day and you will see how futile this would be. Imagine an househelp, maid, nanny, whatever they are called in your locale, making suggestion to the woman of the house of a top general or better still the vice president of a country, governor, or top official!

When Naaman took her as slave from Israel, he never knew God was setting him up to be blessed! God just needed to see his obedience all the way to heal him!

There are treasures in earthen vessels friends, pray for the eyes that sees, the ears that hears, a receptive and obedient heart.

Lord help us to see your handwriting on the wall of our hearts. Help us to see you in every situation. Let us not be a Gehazi, covetous and disobedient! May we discern and honor your anointing always in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Obedience ! Key To Breakthroughs !

Obedience is better than sacrifice! When the Lord gives you an instruction friends, do yourself a favor, take action. Do what you have been asked to do regardless if it made sense or not. Your logic can never reason out the workings of The Spirit!!

God told David he will hear the sound of matching on a Mulberry tree 2 Samuel 5:24. Strange it sounds , impossible it seems, yet David listened for the sound, he heard, took action and the result was victory over the Philistines.

In Luke 5:4 When he had finished speaking , he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon a seasoned fisherman knows way too much about this trade. He has fished all night when it was most favourable to bring in a catch and caught nothing. Here is this carpenter, what does he know about fishing? 

Let down your net my foot you and I have said many times to the Lord by our action. That can’t be Lord! You don’t understand what I have been through!! The prognosis/ diagnosis is pretty bad Lord!  I have gone too far, how can can it be? How can I carry now at my age?He/She hurt me so bad, how can I forgive them, especially as they haven’t even apologized ! Oh! he’s/she’s not even sorry what they said, what they did! Forgive the Lord said!!! Let down the nets for a catch the Lord said!!

Do you get it friends? Has the Lord spoken to you about an issue you’ve been struggling with and you are explaining like the Man by the pool in Bethesda John 5:1-8. The Lord is saying to you today ” Pick up your mat and walk.” Listen and obey!! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Present Generation!!!!!!!

obedienceRomans 10:1-4 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelite is that they may be saved. 2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. 3 Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 4 Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.

Friends, like the Istraelite of old. This generation of believers are also Israelite of God. We were bought with a price paid for by Jesus Christ with His blood. Why would a man do that we may ask. Jesus did that because of His love for mankind, he loved us so much that in order to reconcile us to the Everlasting Father, he had to die for us to live.

We in return were suppose to live for him in word and in action, in spirit and in truth, love and unity growing in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of the mystery of The Word. Alas, we have departed from the Word and are been led by the Philosophy of this present age. Our hearts and love for the Truth has waned. We do not live by truth and have become lovers of self instead of lover of God. This is why we are not seeing the manifestation of the power of God in our midst.

Friends, let us be sensitive to the need of the times. We need to reawaken the spirit of the Most High God that has laid down, hedged in within us by desires of this world – legitimate desires of what to eat,clothing and the likes and the pride of life- what and who I want to be, achieve and the likes. These are taking our focus off our Savior. Why are we here? We are saved to do what? Build empires, dynasties, collect accolades while the kingdom of God in our midst on earth is been polluted by the philosophy of men and evil while souls are perishing every minutes and going to hell?

Let us examine ourselves if we are still in the faith and repent today while it is time. Let our heart be prepared and willing to allow the Holy Spirit free reign so we and the world can see the manifestation of the power of the living God as it was and is and is to come. We just have to be willing and obedient and we will eat the fruit of the land.
