Dreams, Calling, & Life!!

Job 33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night,
    when deep sleep falls on people
    as they slumber in their beds,
16 he may speak in their ears
    and terrify them with warnings,
17 to turn them from wrongdoing
    and keep them from pride,
18 to preserve them from the pit,
    their lives from perishing by the sword.

job 33 14I had a dream, in this dream I was driving a Corvette, parked it and took out its cover and covered it from front to back as it was topless. Then I and others seem to be somewhere not very friendly and we wisely exited and were on our way to some other place.

Then I saw, someone laid on a pedestal in a bush, field, and was attended to by someone. The attendant left to get something white from an old man’s bag opened by this old man who held it out for this young attendant to scoop the stuff out and it was placed on the person laid out who seems lifeless. This lifeless body was then packed up and carried out of the wooded area into a residential area. As the young man carrying this lifeless body was met by others, he fell unto a grassy field tumbling with the lifeless body.

Romans 1 20Then a cloud descended on all on the field and a thunderous voice from heaven was heard asking “What about the thing I asked you to do? The lifeless body sat up and was answering but I did not hear the answer/ response, then I woke up.

I knelt down and prayed asking God what this is all about. Prayed and was prompted to write it down. Oh Lord my God do not interpretation belong to you? Please give me the interpretation of this and those others I prayed. Grant me the grace to interpret my dreams accurately Oh Lord in Jesus name. Lord let every dream from the pit of hell be destroyed in Jesus mighty name.

This was a dream from November 14th, 2014.

Lord in your mercy destroy every work of Satan concerning I and my friends. Help us to obey you Lord, to fulfill your plan and purpose for our lives. May we not die without fulfilling your plan for us. Give us understanding of the times Lord. Lord, we know you are ever present with us, even when everything seem to go crazy around us, and we cannot find our bearing, please help us not to lose hope. Help us to lay aside everything that has been working against us obeying you in all our ways.

Father, let your power, the power that raised Christ from the dead manifest in us to destroy every works of Satan. Reignite your fire within us and help us Lord. We can accomplish nothing except you help us by your Holy Spirit. Let the light of your countenance overshadow us even as we walk on the path of obedience in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

A Time Like This!

A-time-like-this-Pastor-Joel-WellsA few years ago I received Isaiah 28:24-29, and prior to that I had received countless that I could not make sense of. I knew it was particular to me, my situation and issues of life, but I did not understand the depth thereof. I sought for understanding and laid it aside when none was forthcoming. And now I am been prompted to take a look at this closely!

Isaiah 28:24-29

Listen and hear my voice;
    pay attention and hear what I say.
24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually?
    Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil?
25 When he has leveled the surface,
    does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin?
Does he not plant wheat in its place,
    barley in its plot,
    and spelt in its field?
26 His God instructs him
    and teaches him the right way.

27 Caraway is not threshed with a sledge,
    nor is the wheel of a cart rolled over cumin;
caraway is beaten out with a rod,
    and cumin with a stick.
28 Grain must be ground to make bread;
    so one does not go on threshing it forever.
The wheels of a threshing cart may be rolled over it,
    but one does not use horses to grind grain.
29 All this also comes from the Lord Almighty,
    whose plan is wonderful,
    whose wisdom is magnificent.

 

The Church, your family, your world needs you at a time like this!!

When the Lord woke me up this morning with a thought so strong in my heart, I was glad, yet disturbed. What will come of this I thought? What and how am I going to accomplish this? Then I read my devotion in the Open Heavens by Pastor E. A. Adeboye and I was like Lord, why are you doing this to me? The Lord is saying, and I believe to all, He is at work in us to will and to act in order for His good works to be fulfilled in us – Philippians 2:13.

He has bestowed on us His Holy Spirit to work diverse works. 1 Corinthians 12:There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

The Lord is saying to you and I that He has been working within us, preparing, and equipping us for tasks He want us to do – Ephesians 2:10. Enough of our doing the same thing over and over, wasting time in disobedience. Now is the time to step out, step forward, to do what needs to be done.

Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land; 20 but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken. Enough of resisting the Lord friends, you cannot win or change His mind. Open your mouth He said and He will fill it up. Open your mouth and the words are right there! Psalms 81:10 I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. 

It is not that we don’t know where that need is in our life, family, organization, Church, our community, and the world. We do know, but refuse to take action waiting we say for the appropriate time and place when we should be working out our faith. We also have been prepared; for life’s situations have been preparing us for such a time like this. In Verse 24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil? This is the time to sow! Now is the time to speak, let your voice ring out loud and clear. The appointed time to reveal the heart of the matter! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Just Imagine!!! Hmm!!!

When there is unity, unity of purpose, we often see the manifestation of the power of God. What we have been experiencing lately in the family and the Kingdom is individuality, personal marketing, and self promotion as it is in the World. The very fabric of our society is riddled with greed and self centered-ness.

Friends, stop right there!! Just imagine! Imagine we all, the different parts of the Lord’s body, coming together as one!! Yes, as ONE! What a miracle for the World to see.

2 Chronicles 5:13 The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud, 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.

What a beauty!!! The breakthroughs, promotion, increase, expansion, fruitfulness of our bodies, healing, deliverance, and so much more that we need, want, and desire will be birthed in the place of praise unto our God in one accord, unity of purpose in spirit and in truth.

If only we will let go of the pretense and come together genuinely to praise Him who inhabit the praises of His peoplePsalms 22:3.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

There’s Good In It!

There is a time for everything under the sun. In joy, and in sadness, in trials and peace, in plenty and in lack, friends, there are lessons to be learnt.

Are you listening to what the spirit is saying to you this moment of calmness and ease? Please listen and do the Lord’s bidding.

Desire the sincere milk/meat of the word, dwell in it and you will receive sight even for the journey ahead!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Foundation! Living Right-Old Age!

Psalms 92:12  The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; 13 planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

Isaiah 46:4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

1 Chronicles 29:28 “He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth and honor. His son Solomon succeeded him as king.” This is referring to David. The Lord promised His anointed long life as many verses of the scripture states.

I have, in the nature of my work met with tonnes of people, from different demography. The group of people that have made the greatest impression on me are the Seniors/aged. I met a 90 years old young man today. Yes! You heard right. This gentleman walked towards me with a smile and we clicked right there. In the brevity of time spent I learnt, I mean, what I already knew was reiterated and it struck a chord with me.

You see friends, God, many time over in the scriptures promised us long life. I doubt if we even believe this with all our hearts. We pray for it, especially the female species, but do we really believe it is ours for the taking? Believing this will enable us to live circumspectly.

Well, what I learnt from this gentle man and another 83 years old lady was to avoid been around negative and toxic individuals for they seem to be able to suck life out of every situation, live simply, have a positive attitude seeing good in every situation, smile more often, and please do not forget the God factor. Like the gentleman said, putting a smile on your face is already been on a right track. Be kind to everyone along your path. Live a happy life on purpose, have a sense of humor – laugh at yourself, stop looking in your rear view! Face forward with optimism.

God I believe is aligning us to his purpose this season. The platform/foundation the Lord has given us – our salvation, what are we building on it? Are you living right? Do you let every wind knock you down? Your mistakes, if ever there was any such, considering that God works in us. Let leave this for another day! Are you content and satisfied where you are at this scene of your walk of faith? How healthy would you want to be at, say, 70 years, 80, and 90? What are you building on your foundation? Reexamine your ways and make necessary correction. It is not late, this is the appointed hour.

Luke 6: 43 46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

Obey the Lord! Love others as yourself, keeping your garment unstained by acts of wickedness. Let go of negativity, begin to see differently and begin to radiate God’s glory. Teach us to number our days Oh Lord that we might gain a heart of wisdom – Psalms 90:12.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
