John 16:12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.15All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
We have limitations in that we only see in part – 1 Corinthians 13:9-12
However, by the help of the Holy Spirit, God in His infinite mercy will prompt us per time to worship, pray, dance, dream, speak, keep silent, embrace, engage, withdraw, rest and so much more if only we ask for His help and wait for His guidance.
Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
He knows all things and the secret things belong unto Him. You should lean on Christ Jesus more. Play safe!
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
Change is coming to the Spiritual terrain of The Church – African believers, either the establishment likes it or not.
God is releasing those who’s garment are washed by Christ blood, and live for Him fearlessly into the stream of event!
The flood of awakening is flooding The Church. Those that have turned The Church to enterprises, money making venture where people are manipulated and kept in bondage to fear, repent now, preach the Truth of the gospel,
There will be a falling away, but woe to that individual, and groups that allow Satan to use them!
Church leaders, do not equate resistance to your falsity as an apostasy! Far be it!
This next decade will bring surprises in The Church no one has seen coming!
There will be an awakening, Holy Spirit will convict and enlighten the darkness in The Church as we see it now!
As published a while ago, titled “Spiritual Alertness – Communion With God and Man.
The Church, you and I, the body of Christ have been living in safety, at peace and secure. We have been dull of hearing, insensitive to the times we are in like the people of Laish in Judges 18:7-10. We are not playing defense, nor attack, neither are we shining. The Church is complacent, safely playing Church, lukewarm when we should be hot and be in the attack mode, to uproot and to destroy every work of wickedness within and around us.
The Holy Spirit is not having its expression in our midst as He should because of the state of our hearts,the temperature of our gathering. We are minimizing our shine, the power that lays within us. Compromising our faith in other to conform to the world, to be liked by those of this world, when we already know we are not of this world – John 17:14
1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” Says the Lord. There is a remnant though, those that have not sold their heart to the devil, not bought over by the prosperity or hyper-grace gospel. Those whose garment is without a wrinkle sold out to the Lord come what may! Those whose heart is stayed on the Lord, not polluted or distracted by the love of all that we see with physical eyes.
There is a remnant, immersed and submerged in the water, waiting for a time appointed to arise shine for the glory of the Lord has risen. I wonder why many are not feeling the unrest, the troubling in the body even now! There is an awakening, even though sleep has fallen on many! Oh Lord, open our spiritual eyes to see!
Now is the time for the Church as a body and individuals to set aside every encumbrance and arise shine, to let the light of God shine through us to the dark places in the world, bringing salvation to sinners, hope to the hopeless, joy to the heartbroken, and prepare the way for the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to whom be glory, honor and adoration world without end. Amen
1 John 3:1-3 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, let us wake up from our slumber. We need spiritual awakening and the manifestation of the power of God in our midst like never before in order to be relevant in this present generation and stop the loss of precious souls to the kingdom of darkness.
We are to arise and shine for the light has come and the spirit of the living God has risen upon us. For darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples – Isaiah 60:1-5.
Arise oh my soul and be renewed! Dwell not on the transient, that which does perish, but on that which will endure to eternity. Do not be deceived by the deceitfulness of sin. Every challenges has made you stronger and is moving you towards your walking on your high places to the joy and glory of Christ who died to make you live and live abundantly a life that is worthy of the calling upon your life.
Take up the mantle and trample upon serpent and scorpions and over all the power of darkness and nothing shall hurt you. You have the mind of Christ, operate in it to give joy to the sorrowful, deliverance to the captives and declare peace be still to storms raging in the heart and mind of the nations.
To you Lord, the Everlasting Father be all glory, honor and adoration! Amen
1 After the death of Joshua, the Israelite asked the Lord, “Who of us is to go up first to fight against the Canaanites?”2 The Lord answered, “Judah shall go up; I have given the land into their hands.”3 The men of Judah then said to the Simeonites their fellow Israelite, “Come up with us into the territory allotted to us, to fight against the Canaanites. We in turn will go with you into yours.” So the Simeonites went with them.
Friends, the Scripture clearly stated that Christ is the head of the Church and we – all believers is the body and that we can not function effectively and efficiently separately and apart from each other.
Ephesians 4:25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. Also Ephesians 5:30 “ for we are members of his body“.
1 Corinthians 12:12-end “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body ……., Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. ……………..On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are not presentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
Where am I going with all this you might ask? Joshua in Judges 1:2 chose Judah to go in first to possess the inheritance God had given them. Judah asked the Simeonites, his brother to go with them to drive out the Canaanites occupying their allotment and in return, Judah will go with the Simeonites to possess their possession. We can see here partnership among brethren. They had great success and each was no less better.They achieved their goals faster and better.
Brethren, I mean Christ redeemed, heaven bound, conscious believers(many are still in a daze, bewitched by the world), intuitively aware of the times and season we are in, like the children of Issachar. Now is the time to collaborate in / with the work of the Kingdom, we cannot be effective and efficient in Kingdom work as much as when we come together as one indivisible body united by the Holy Spirit for spiritual reawakening, to awaken the slumbering and prepare the way for the return of the Messiah, the Eternal King of Glory.
There is a cloud of witness watching our every move, waiting for us to get it. Yes, get it. As parts, here and there working on our own with limited power and result at best, however, when we unite with one purpose and agenda, the Holy Spirit that baptized us into one body will come mightily and empower us, the body to do great exploit. Its been a long time coming, the Holy Spirit is here to baptize us, empower us to do his bidding. Just imagine the upper room experience with Peter happening in every neighborhood Church and house fellowships! We will take the world by surprise. This is only achievable by uniting and working together in Spirit and in truth, not sabotaging the gospel nor looking down on the part that we perceive to be unimportant and therefor irrelevant.
Remember, the scripture says in 1 Corinthians 1:27-31 “but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
We indeed care, protect and honor that part of our body that is not presentable more than any other part of our body. Now is the time to seek out and court those whom we perceive to be inconsequential, yes, seek them out to prepare for transformation that will soon step unto the world stage, it’s already happening. The insignificant, relegated will soon step to the world stage. God uses the base things of this world, he chose David to kill Goliath, Deborah to deliver a whole nation, and a wedding mishap to launch the ministry of his dear son Jesus Christ.
Let us come together in unity of purpose, love, respect and trust, the wise and the seemingly unwise, rich and seemingly poor, the Kingdom of God need us all to put our hands on deck and work for our God, the Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Only wise God, to whom be all glory, honor, and adoration world without end. Amen
