These were his instructions:”Take nothing for the journey except a staff- no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off you feet as a testimony against them.” Mark 6:8-11
Jesus sent the disciples out in twos without so much and AND THEY IMPACTED THE WORLD SO MUCH THAT YOU AND I, ARE READING AND STUDYING THEIR WORK, THOUSAND OF YEARS LATER. Verse 12: They went out and preached that people should repent. 13: They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
Nowadays we have fleet of airplanes, Gucci suits, Rolex watches, mansions, gold and silver, large auditorium and all the fleeting things that have taken over this age, and yet demons stare us in the face at every service, the sick line up the aisle, people leave Churches and go home to commit suicide, accursed things are celebrated and evil sit at the gate!
Holy Spirit, enlighten us! Are you here as you were at the beginning? Is Joel 2:28 valid for us today? It was valid when Peter quoted it in Acts 2:17, for we saw the result! Why is the temperature and the beating of our hearts so low? Revive your people! Revive us oh Lord in Jesus name. AmenTweet
We are not seeing the move of the Spirit as we should because the vessels are all together corrupt, everyone is seeking after self, building kingdoms on earth, and not the kingdom of God!
Jeremiah 5: “Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, (put your locale here) look around and consider, search through her squares. If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city. 2 Although they say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, still they are swearing falsely.” 3 Lord, do not your eyes look for truth? You struck them, but they felt no pain; you crushed them, but they refused correction. They made their faces harder than stone and refused to repent. 4 I thought, “These are only the poor; (baby Christians if there ever was such. The laymen, those in the pews etc) they are foolish, for they do not know the way of the Lord, the requirements of their God. 5 So I will go to the leaders, (the Bishops, Reverend, Pastors, GO’s, Reverend Fathers etc) and speak to them; surely they know the way of the Lord, the requirements of their God.” But with one accord they too had broken off the yoke and torn off the bonds. 6…………. 7″Why should I forgive you? Your children have forsaken me and sworn by gods that are not gods. I supplied all their needs, yet they committed adultery and thronged to the houses of prostitutes.8 They are well-fed, lusty stallions, each neighing for another man’s wife. 9 Should I not punish them for this?” declares the Lord. “Should I not avenge myself.
We all should repent of our wicked ways, no exemption. From the top to the bottom, we have all backs-lidded, for how else can we explain what is going on in our congregation? How? With all the gadget, ease, and provision, The Church is not impacting her world!
Jeremiah 5: 30 ” A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: 31 The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?
What will you do? What will I do? I will pray and speak up. speak out about the truth that sets free!
Almighty, All Knowing, All Seeing, All Powerful God, have mercy on us the “poor”, and our “leaders”. Open our eyes to see the effect of our coldness to your will, the vacuum we have left for your enemy, Satan, to fill up. Rekindle your fire within us Lord, set our hearts ablaze, aright and in sync to your will I pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Yet the Lord is merciful! The person that will not receive forgiveness is that one that refuses to repent and turn away from evil ways.
Is the Lord Jesus, pleasing him first place in your heart? You may have slipped! Like the prodigal, you can go home today, daddy is waiting with open arms. Yes, Jesus’s blood paved the way!
Pretending to still get things together without the inward witness of the Holy Spirit will only land one deeper into mire. Yet Christ Jesus is only a call away! I mean, why don’t you just quit faking it? Jesus cares!!!!
Get acquainted or reacquainted with The Word of God. It fails not! Never! Let the fire of the Holy Spirit ignite your Spirit and transform thee!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

1 Corinthians 6:12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
The society has degenerated to the lowest level of perversion so much that children as young as 3,4 years old are going to be / already taught the intricacy of sex. A whole nation eradicating the first institution ordained by God on the basis of individual rights! What will become of the natural state of being? Where is the world headed?
Destruction! if we all do not repent and forsake every form of ungodliness. Righteousness exalt a nation and sin is a reproach. Let me bring this home. We that are named by God as His own, are we living by example? Are we secretly living in sin and probably doing worst? Repent today!
We need to seek for forgiveness now for every atrocities in our society and stand guard against every devices of the crafty to infiltrate the body of Christ. It’s seeping in gradually. The Church is in the world but not of the world. It is high time we take our rightful place by preparing ourselves to be filled to overflowing with the power of the Holy Spirit. The world has been deceived by immorality,materialism and much more. Will we still be standing when our Lord comes? Will I? Will you?
Please friends, watch and pray! We get tempted here and there, sex is all around us beckoning us to take just a sip of its poison, that’s what it is. Its a temporary satisfaction and afterwards, dissatisfaction, which out weighs satisfaction and causes lingering regret.
Lord please help my friends and I to never forget that you live in our bodies and so therefore keep it clean of all filthiness in our thoughts and actions. Lord, may we be smart enough to know what triggers the inherent sinfulness in all humans and avoid it. May your Holy Spirit guide and guard us that we might not sin against you. For if any man thinks he stand, let him watch less he falls. We want to live holy Lord, please help us to be sensitive to your spirit so we might not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin. We pray and receive grace in Christ Jesus name. Amen
Psalm of David 24:3 and 4. Read whole chapter for better understanding
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god.
Friends, you and I are always in the presence of the Most High. He is omnipresence, sees all things. The secret things of the heart, the schemes, manipulations, intentions and motives. He cannot be deceived! It is possible to deceive the smartest of being, but not our God. Giants of faith like David,Samson, Abraham were deceived at one point, not the Most High God. He knows the nitty gritty of all creation, for they came into being by His words.
Do not take the love, patience and long suffering of God for granted. In due time He will repay. Do you take the communion with hatred, malice, evil, un-forgiveness in your heart. Examine yourself, if you are still in the way of life and repent of all wickedness. God does not want any to perish but have everlasting life. Repent therefor and be cleansed. Don’t just go to Church today in pretense. Repent! repent! repent! Appropriate the blood of Jesus over your life. Let it cleanse and make you whole.
Judgement is coming upon the wicked even in this life. Every workers of unrighteousness shall have their due recompense. Suffer not a witch to live! In the name of Jesus Christ, take authority over every manipulating spirit, deceptive, serpentine and contrary spirit to the Holy Spirit, bind them and cast them out of your life and Church. You have the authority as a believer. It is all there in the scripture. Read your bible friends, your life depend on it. Do not allow wickedness to reign in your midst/member.
Most High God, as your children gather before you, stretch out your hand Oh Lord to deliver and save. Let the captives be set free, the bound loosed, the blind see, deaf hear, dumb speak, let evil spirit be bound and cast out of those oppressed. Lord let righteousness reign in the midst of your people. Purge wickedness out with the blood of your son Jesus Christ. In Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen
Judges 16: 1- end. The Story of Samson
God had spoken to his mother before his conception. God also revealed Himself to both parent, instructing them how to care for this anointed child. Samson was anointed from the womb, yet he grew up doing everything contrary to the commandments of God. Sexual immorality was his undoing. It cost Samson his eyes and life ultimately. He lost touch with the Holy Spirit of the living God that had been abiding in him even before he was born.
Samson did achieve the purpose for which he was born, which was to destroy the very fabric of the Philistines power and dominion over Israel – God’s own possession. He destroyed the Lord’s enemy – Israel’s cruel oppressor.
Oh Samson! Samson! He would have still destroyed Philistines power and rule over Israel and lived, had he not an insatiable desires for strange women.
You see, friends, there will always be something, issues, desires contending for our life and destiny. God has great, wonderful, and beautiful plan for His children. The wicked one also has plans to kill, steal and destroy. Therefore, there is conflict from within and without. Even after salvation, believers still struggle to stand in the Word in righteousness because of the demand of the flesh over the mind.
In the case of Samson, it was women – beautiful women. In our case, there are many – handsome men, power, money, anger, pride, greed, envy, gluttony, hatred, gossip, snitching, backbiting, loose tongue, controlling others free will by all means and so on. These can, and is capable of pushing us out of God’s plan and purpose for our existence.
Friends, will you join me in sober reflection, to identify the sins that easily befalls, and take it to God in prayer. Put a system in place by the Holy Spirit so that you will not trip – fall or fail in your walk in the Spirit. It is do-able friends, we have a great and loving advocate in Jesus Christ who is daily interceding for us (I John 2:1,John 14: 16 and 26). Ministering Spirits are released when we pray to God from our heart to help and assist us in this walk of destiny (Hebrew 1:14).
The bible says, without holiness no one shall see God (Hebrew 12:14). We have the Holy Spirit to help us, we have provision, we are not stranded, nor left as orphans to navigate the treacherous path of life. Let us therefore, hold unto our confession of faith, praying earnestly that we will not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin and the transient glitter of this present world.
Repent therefore and be cleansed, renewed, restored, rejuvenated, and elevated to a position from which you and I are able to offer acceptable sacrifice, service, worship, and praise to the Most High God, King Eternal, Only Wise God, All Sufficient and All Encompassing God world without end. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
