How Concerned Are You?

How concerned are you? How concerned am I for the house of our Lord that lies in ruin? You have two to ten properties giving you income, investments here and there, I mean you are set up financially for the next three to five generations! You care less what happens to the house of our Lord as long as the status quo is maintained!!! Or like me, you are barely surviving, I mean, you are working hard to put food on the table, keep your head above water, and have a little investment, something for the next generation. I care less if Jerusalem lies in ruins. I have too much trouble of my own to look after, what do I care about the heart bit of God? Is this you? And I? For real Friends?

Matthew 3

This is where Nehemiah is different from you and I. He was saddened by what he heard about Jerusalem – Nehemiah 1 & 2. He was the cup bearer for King Artaxerxes, the King of Persia, the “iku baba ye ye of his days”, the paramount ruler, powerful and influential person. Nehemiah was a creme de la cream of his days. He had risen from been a captive to stardom. He bears the cup for the King of Persia. What more can a man hope for. Nehemiah had it all!!! Why should he care about what goes on in Jerusalem? Good luck to them in Jerusalem would have been his thought if he were like you and I, present day professing Christ followers!

nehemiahbgFriends, you and I are far from been like Nehemiah, who had everything going for him, but risk everything to rebuild the ruins of what was left of his ancestors homeland. What are you doing to rebuild the house of God! What are you and I doing to infuse hope into the hopeless? What are we doing to revive the downcast, bowed down, weighed down by life? What are we doing to encourage the broken hearten, strengthen the feeble hands, share good tidings to the lost? What are we doing about disciplining nations for our King?

identifyNot surprising how we live our christian life, for to most of us, our relationship is “transactional” as Pastor Sunday Adelaja put it, our relationship with the Father of Spirits is not transformational. We are into Christianity for what we can get from God and not what we can do for him, and His people, the soul He died for.

If we care just a little bit like Nehemiah, then we would not stand in the way of the Lord. We would engage every gift, talent, resources at our disposal to rebuild the ruins of what is left of Christianity, Christ followers in our locale, and the world over.  “Ruins” because majorities belief in the community of believers is faulty. Spiritual growth is at best superficial. The word is misquoted and used to back up the lie we live. The true gospel of peace to all is far from our lips!

Unlike Nehemiah, you and I, oppress, beat down each other, withhold good from each other, and God’s Kingdom. We work for ourselves, enriching our pockets, building mega churches with “transactional” Christians in the sanctuary for material wealth and to maintain the status quo. We should have transcended this by now friends. Christianity is beyond social status, title, position, props and speeches to tingle the ears of Saints. Christianity means to rebuild what has been torn down, give hope to people, heal the sick, empower the weak, enlighten the ignorant, build up an army well equipped to disciple nations. 

Friends, do not be a Sanballat, or Tobiah, against the welfare of the people of God. Do not hinder that which will benefit everyone including you, just because whatever!!. Everything does not have to revolve around you dear. God is more than able to raise up stones – Matthew 3:9, Luke 19:40.

God at this time is raising up an army, presently submerged under water. At the appointed time, when they rise up, what we know of , presently existing will be no more, for the flood will sweep the sanctuary clean of all those buying and selling!! This is a revelation for the wise to take note and readjust. His kingdom shall come and His will be done!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Revealed Word! For All!

Revelations from the study of the word of God must first speak to you as a minister, before you can deliver it forward. When God speaks to one, He speaks to all by His Holy Spirit – Mark 13:37.

Therefor, when a word is received, it must first, as light pass through you, examining, correcting, instructing and so on before it can have an impact on the recipient and we all as in beholding Him in a mirror can be transformed by the renewing of our minds. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

He who has ears let Him hear what the Spirit says!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Apple Fell- The River Walk

David said, “I am going to show loyalty to Hanun because his father, Nahash, was always loyal to me.” So David sent messengers to express sympathy to Hanun about his father’s death. But when David’s ambassadors arrived in the land of Ammon, the Ammonite commanders said to Hanun, “Do you really think these men are […]

My Confession!!!!!

resisting-or-being-shapedThe greatest story scripted with the most precious blood in heaven and on earth, presented for all humanity by the Holy Spirit for the joy of mankind and the glory of the Most High God – my salvation.

Things haven’t changed as I expected, yet I know everything has changed. I was on a look out for something dramatic, like lightning and the sort. Instead it was the brush stroke of a master artist, a gentle breeze on a cool night.  I felt a feathery touch, a quiet whisper.  I see everything changed and changing with the eye of my Spirit man. I have been transformed! I am being renewed by the renewal of my mind by the Word of God.  The Word of God is daily taking root downward and bearing fruits upward in my life. The eyes of my understanding is been enlightened.

I am beginning to walk in my destiny to the praise of God Most High. I am embolden by the Holy Spirit to stand in and with the truth in the Word with courage and assurance of victory. I will not fail nor falter nor fall! The pillar that holds my life also set a limit for the ocean and holds the world in its place, in the palm of His hands. He that keepeth me does not sleep nor slumber, heaven is His throne and this earth that I live in at the moment, is His foot stool.

God knows my beginning and end, and has everything planned out and on schedule. Nothing happens that He does not know about, and He is working EVERYTHING out for my good, including my mistakes. I would have loved to have the full picture of my tomorrow right now! He never showed me all, just a glimpse and it is beautiful.  God asked me to walk in faith with Him a step at a time, believing, confessing, and acting on His Words daily. He promised me that IF I stay rooted in Him it shall be WELL with me. Eternity is promised by grace alone, with the assurance that my obedience and living for the glory of His name will give me joy even here, now in this body.

What more can I say? What do I say to this great and mighty King, the Sovereign God, immortal, invisible, the only wise God. Who knew me before the foundation of the World was laid and counted me worthy to be called by His name. Nothing qualified me but the blood of JESUS shed on Calvary’s tree! I am eternally secured and protected, I and all that concerns me. No weapon of wickedness formed against me shall prosper, every tongue that has and shall rise in judgement against me I condemn in Jesus name.

I declare that it shall be well with me all the days of my life, I and my household. Our destiny is secured by the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I can see a very bright and colorful future, a glorious destiny and eternity spent with my maker, the Most High God.

Friends this is my confession today, this moment by faith. What about you? Do you see God working it out for you? Do you even know this God? Would you like to know Him? Then draw near by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, confess and repent of your sins – yes all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Jesus beckons you to come to him so He can give you life, and more abundantly. Jesus is Lord!!
