The Devil Knows!

Mark 3:11 Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.”

Friends, this should explain the animosity you get from some quarters. You see, the wicked can perceive the grace of God upon your life. They can see

Christ in you the hope of your gloryColossians 1:27

and this is not their wish for you, so they will antagonize you.

You wonder why your mere presence causes discomfort? This is why!

You my friend carry the very presence of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Like my sister said, a good morning to some people is an invitation to find fault with you. This ought not be so if Christ lives within!

Jesus said they, the wicked, the haters of anything good, and Christ-like will hate you and I. John 15:18-27. It is a guarantee. Don’t take it personal my friend, they will never like you and you do not have to care about it. You cannot please these and Christ at the same time. You have to choose who’s side you want to be!

Friends, be wise like a serpent and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16. Ask for grace to keep your heart free from offenses. Do not stray from the path of righteousness. The Lord Himself watches over you!

Do not forget to pray for your perceived enemies. Matthew 5 :44

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Rebuilding! Inside Out!

To change the world, you must change yourself.

And, without self reflection, you will not see the good, the bad, and what need an upgrade.

What you see in others is in you
What you see in yourself is in countless others

To change the world then, you must bring what is inside to the forefront

This is where the change begins
Inside out!

You Are In Rhythm! Flow With It!

Overtime as you walk with the Lord and He works in you to will and to act daily in order to fulfill His good pleasure in you, with you, and through you, you begin to grow and mature.

Those irritants, the irritants of life becomes less and less of an irritant because He is working in you and you are getting it!

You see the games as its been played on different angles, God and His sovereign plan and purpose on the one hand, and the devil and His manipulating cohort on the one side.

You then daily choose to dance a tango in rhythm to the tune of heaven knowing fully well who is holding your hands.

Fear and doubt begin to dissipate as you step here and there in rhythmic patterns as ordained of God!

No happenstance friends! It’s all part of His plan.

You are much wiser, see clearer, understand better, more confident and grounded. You are evolving! Own It! It Is yours! ☀️Radiant Glory

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

So Easy! Falling Into Error!

It is so easy to fall into error! Test every spirit the Lord said! 1 John 4:1

As the Lord lays tables before His own, remember it is in the presence of the enemy! Psalms 23:5

Satan will always table error arrayed as the real thing before God’s children. He did when he took Jesus to a very high mountain in Matthew 4:8-9. Satan showed the Lord, the world and asked Jesus to bow to him.

What revelation have you received? If it contradicts the Word, or requires you to twist the Scriptures- the Holy Word of God, then it is counterfeit. It is not of God!

What pressure, need, desire are you bowing before? What are you idolizing, worshiping, other than the creator? Mammon?

By discernment of the Holy Spirit you will be able to weigh revelations in light of the Scriptures.

Peter had to question Jesus when he was asked to eat unclean animals! Acts 10:9-15.

You need to question what you receive of the Lord!

Is it for the advancement of the gospel, for the good of all?

Or is it for your ego trip, personal gain, self-serving, self-esteem, feel good kind of thing?

May the Lord keep us all from falling into error! Mercy on your chosen Lord!

Error makes false teacher!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

True Ambassadors! Integrity!

Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

According to Luke, this is Jesus’s last word to his disciple, and to you and I. Jesus is saying even now that when the Holy Spirit comes upon us that we will be witnesses in our locale and to the ends of the earth.

integrityIs this true of us believers today? Are we truly Christ Jesus ambassadors? Are we truly representing Jesus to the unsaved, lost, weary, discouraged, downtrodden? Is your answer in the affirmative? I guess not! You and I know that the Word of God is powerful and able to transform lives. We know how to wedge the word to dislodge everything contrary to Christ Jesus, however, it seem the world is not changing, our society, community, families and lives are still what it used to be. We have not changed! We lack integrity! 

Integrity! It means saying something, meaning it, and doing it. Integrity refers to your actions matching your words. Many times we say one thing and act another thing. This makes us not to be taken seriously. We are prone to speak from two sides of our mouth, I mean we say something and actually mean another. We have become two-faced! This need to change for us to impact our world effectively and efficiently for the Lord.

integrity when no one sees

As a parent, you ought to know by now, and as a friend, colleague, part of a group, you must know by now that when someone lack integrity, those in contact with you take your words with a pinch of salt, for it is just mere words. You do not inspire the best in others around you if your words mean nothing to them.

The Word itself carries depth of meaning and powerful by itself, however coming from you, hmmm, may connote a different meaning because your actions do not often match your words. All this is seen and heard clearly!

As a child, my dad very often will come with the driver, a chauffeur to pick us up after school. Dad will always have one stop or another to make along the way home. We lived about 40kms from our school, in the outskirt of our city. Dad will always want to see one or other of his relations, friends and acquaintances on the way. Dad will say, ” children, I will be back in a minute or two, and be gone for half hour. We were an okay family, so most times there is always refreshment in the vehicle with us. There was always a cooler with Maltina and a bag with Nasco biscuit to snack on, but we want to go home and play or something. You know children! We were typical children, restless when in one place.

postsAfter a while, we stopped believing dad’s 1 to 5 means just that. We were actually surprised one day when dad took just about 5 minutes or less. We clapped when he joined us in the vehicle.

Most of you must have been in that situation. You can relate to this scenario right? My children these days ask, “are we just going home after church or do you want to stop by the groceries or something mummy?” Can we just go home please?! “You can do that on your way from work tomorrow mummy!” Guess I took after my dad eh. 🙂

actionsWhere am I going with this? As a bible believer who desires to be a true ambassador of Christ, we must endeavor to match our words with our actions! If we say ABC, then we must act ABC! We must not say ABC, and act DEFG.

We must start living the word, not just saying it, preaching it, shouting it at the top of our lungs. We must be living it day in day out. The Word is powerful by itself! It can really change lives, transform minds and heart! Why don’t we allow it to transform us, renew our minds, so we can truly say something, mean it, and back it up with our actions.

There are too many professing Christ, but very few Christ redeemed, ambassadors of faith. We can all turn a new leaf today. Jesus Christ is able to transform you and I!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
