My future is bright, I will get there, wonderful, shining bright, I will get there!
My past? Well, it is wiped off, erased, cleaned up with my saviors blood! How dare you taunt me with it? How dare you? My savior shed His blood for it. Yes, Jesus shed his blood to wipe it off record? And the false accusations?
Exodus 20:16 You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
How dare you, supposed Sister or the devils advocate? Ploy to distract me will not succeed. My face is set like a flint!!!!
The scripture state in Revelation 12:10-12, “Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. 11 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. 12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
Repent now, you judge of Israel! The blood of Jesus is available to wash away your filth. Purge your heart of all the filth spewing out every now and then. Do not let it consume you, Jesus is not willing that any should perish, but come to genuine repentance.
Dear Lord God Most High, have mercy on my friends and I in Jesus name. Lord cleanse us of all filthiness, renew a right spirit within us, endow our lips oh Lord with wisdom – the words that will sustain the weary. Let us not be a stumbling block to our brethren. Let our conduct bring many to your presence and the truth of your love in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Our Lord Jesus after healing many went to a solitary place to commune with The Everlasting Father, however the “people were looking for him and tried to “keep” him from leaving. In the journey of life, the fulfillment of God ordained destiny I want you my friends to know that there will always be issues that will want to keep us from walking according to the agenda of heaven. There will always be people, situations and circumstances that will want to hinder us from walking in the fullness of our God ordained destiny.
We all have been commissioned to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations. Our Lord Jesus stated emphatically the above passage that he was not only to heal and deliver in Capernaum, a city in Galilee, but also to bring liberty to other towns.
Are you saved? I mean born again, redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and heaven bound? Transformed by the renewing of your mind? What are you waiting for? We are to work together to bring this good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the other towns – other people, culture, tribes and so on. It start from our homes, parishes, churches of course and it spread to the ends of the earth.
What are those things that constitute hindrances? People and things that might want to keep us from destiny? Challenges of life, health, finances, material and marital. There are countless issues that will mitigate against us. We however have to learn to stay focus and carry our cross. Jesus Christ was rejected in Nazareth by his own community, he did not let that stop him from going to Capernaum and other cities with the good news.
Friends, we have to be resilient in the pursuit of our destiny carrying our crosses trusting wholly in Him who has saved us. He wants to come back to receive us to himself however there is so many more nations and people that has to come to the knowledge of him before he can come back to reign on earth. The whole nations of the earth and people have to hear the gospel .which we have been charged to deliver
Do we even care that tonnes are dying in their sins and countless living without hope. You and I have unique gift-ens to reach out to various others with the gospel of repentance and salvation by faith in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What are you doing about it? What am I doing with that which God has entrusted to me?
This is the hour, the season to rise up in faith and the power of the Holy Spirit to do the Fathers bidding. Arise and shine for the light has come and the spirit of God has risen upon you. You must share this good news come what may. You’ll find out that the moment you step out in obedience, opportunity and grace will align to give utmost pleasure to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Will you partner with God today? Those personal issues will be resolved, trust God. Paul the apostle had no wife or kid and yet had a thorn, how much more you and I with spouses, children, siblings and so on. With this thorn he preached the gospel, pull down strongholds of ignorance and built an enduring legacy that we are living on even now. What will be said about you and I? Will our excuses stand on that day.
Friends, let us do the work of our Savior with utmost urgency and singleness of purpose. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you.
Everlasting Father, we ask that you will strengthen us by your Holy Spirit in our inner man, that we might know the purpose for which you have called us. Give us courage and boldness to stand with you. We pray that we will be compassionate towards those that are suffering and clueless of your saving grace, warning them of the wages of sin and the need for faith in Jesus Christ. In Jesus mighty name we pray and receive. Amen
Luke 1: 57-80 Elizabeth child was going to be named after his dad Zachariah. She spoke up, John he shall be called! Women do not talk where men are standing in those days I suppose. She spoke up for her son, for his destiny – verse 62-64.The relatives had to confirm before they made final an “error” supposedly. They made signs to the father, Zechariah. He requested for a writing material and as he wrote the name John, confirming Elizabeth words, his tongue loosened and he spoke, John! The dumbness of nine months healed, veil of mystery shrouding Zechariah’s service that day at the temple removed. He praised God who had done so wonderful a miracle for him, his family, the nation of Israel and the world we are in today.
Like Zechariah, you and I have been kept quiet by issues and mystery of life. Depending on your perspective, you and I have seen an angel, or is it a demon? Issues have kept you quiet when you ought to have spoken, staring down in place of looking up where the answer lays while destiny is been nurtured within.
Birthing destiny was not that easy for an aged woman like Elizabeth I can imagine. Here is destiny, finally birthed! Hurrah! To be named “strangely” though, thought the relatives!.
Your actions and reactions now that you have been transformed is going to be weighed, put on different scales, scrutinized and probed. Stay true to yourself and God. Be led by the Holy Spirit through the word of God. I say again friends, be led by the word of God or else your John will be called Zechariah. Yes! There must be an overhaul of the old in your life and mine, making room for the new. The Lord is doing a new thing!
You have been transformed! From glory to glory- it is continuous. Therefore, live life with passion for your mission. Daily ignite your passion with the sincere milk of the word of God.
Your transformation will cause an uproar in the camp, either way! Every one will wonder about what has taken place and is taking place in your life. Therefore, stay rooted in the word, lean on God, The Everlasting Father, he will nurture you to maturity and the fulfillment of his plan and purpose for your life.
Don’t ever forget that as a transformed being, you and I are heralds of hope to a lost world. We are carrying the precious gift of the gospel of Salvation, peace and life by grace and faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Praise God! Friends, we are complete in Christ Jesus. We were bought with a price, the precious price of the blood of God’s dear son Jesus Christ. We are not our own, we belong to Christ and as such joint heirs of the promise. We are beyond reproach! You and I are not permitted to go through life aimlessly.
Colossians 2:9-15 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. 11 In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
We have the mandate to dominate which was stolen from us, however, Christ purchase it and gave us full custody backed up by heaven. We should and must not be tossed here and there. Stand firm and exercise your authority, trusting God to back you up.
There is a plan, there is a guide – the Holy Spirit will guide and guard our every step. You and I will not miss it. Take hold of Christ hands, let him lead you. Christ is asking, what do you want me to do for you? Mark 10:51. What do I want? One thing is sure across board, we all need clarity in every facet of life. Clearer vision? Yes! Depth of insight into the deep things of God. What is the next stage of life? How is it going to play out? Am I on point? On course? Have faith.
So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Verse 8
Most High God, please lead us and help us to keep our eyes on you with the assurance of the victory we already have. Let us not be distracted and cheated out of all that you have ordained for us. Oh Lord in your righteousness, guard our every step from stumbling, keep us firm and strong in Christ Jesus name we pray. Amen
