How I Started blogging:

I have always remembered writing things and having papers all over my house growing up. I dream a lot and write down the ones I remember which over the years seem to be a foretold of what will be. With moving houses and all sort, I lost most of my notes. 

Then the Lord found me one day and spoke to me. Yes, He did and told me to get a pen and paper and write down what He was about to tell me. I did not want to lose this information, neither did I want to put it all out there, yet I know I must speak what He says! For what He says to one, He says to all, Watch! Mark 13:37

At this point, I knew that as God was transforming me, what He reveals to me in His words and my daily everyday living must be shared with others like me out there, who may not be very fortunate to hear, see, and feel what I experience almost on a daily basis. This is what gave birth to Joansanusi.com. aka Radiant Glory of God

Nugget: 

  1. Be real! Be authentic! Share from your heart! Be true!
  2. You have something that many people need. Do not deprive them. Share what you know! Also, be open to learning from others!

The Word! The Heart!

Romans 12:6-8 If you preach, just preach God’s Message, nothing else; if you help, just help, don’t take over; if you teach, stick to your teaching; if you give encouraging guidance, be careful that you don’t get bossy; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t let yourself get irritated with them or depressed by them. Keep a smile on your face.

9-10 Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.  

11-13 Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.

14-16 Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.

17-19 Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”

Let these words find a resting place in our hearts Lord! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Just Own Up! Woo Sing And The Mirror!

An ancient Chinese proverb says “The fire you kindle against another often burns you more than it will ever burn another. To keep your temper under control is the toughest kind of discipline it says.

This story goes thus. A boy named Woo Sing was on the field like all little boys playing. His father came home from a long trip while Woo Sing was not home, with a mirror. Woo had never seen a mirror in his life. This mirror was hung in the main room, and when Woo came home, he did not know what it was. He thought his father had brought home a boy just like him. A friend?

The thought made him happy as he took steps towards this other boy before him. Woo spoke to this boy but the boy did not answer. He smiled and waved and the boy did the same.

Woo stopped, deep in thought, does this boy not hear? Maybe, I should go closer. As Woo walked towards this boy, the strange boy walked towards him, mimicking his every move.

Woo Sing was livid with anger, “This boy mocks me; he does everything that I do.” The more Woo thought about this strange boy, the more irritated he became. He was so enraged that he took a long stride towards the boy and struck him, the boy in the mirror, ouch, Woo felt a searing pain and watched in shock as the boy in the mirror crumbled in pieces all over the floor. He ran to his father crying.

His father said to him, “The boy you saw was your own image.” This should teach you an important lesson, my son. Do not lose your temper with other people. What you see in them is in you! You struck the boy in the glass and hurt only yourself. And broke my mirror!

The moral of this story is that “In life when you strike without cause you will hurt yourself most of all”

2 Corinthians 13 asked us to5-9 Test yourselves to make sure you are solid in the faith. Don’t drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular checkups. You need firsthand evidence, not mere hearsay, that Jesus Christ is in you. Test it out. If you fail the test, do something about it. I hope the test won’t show that we have failed. But if it comes to that, we’d rather the test showed our failure than yours. We’re rooting for the truth to win out in you. We couldn’t possibly do otherwise.

We don’t just put up with our limitations; we celebrate them, and then go on to celebrate every strength, every triumph of the truth in you. We pray hard that it will all come together in your lives.

10 I’m writing this to you now so that when I come I won’t have to say another word on the subject. The authority the Master gave me is for putting people together, not taking them apart. I want to get on with it, and not have to spend time on reprimands.

Just own up! Own up to your mistakes, your assumptions, and miscalculations! Own up to the fact that you do fall into errors like everyone else! Come off your high horse, my friend!

You reveal so much about your character, who you are in your core by the way you treat others, especially those you think are beneath your social class or are disadvantaged. Repent! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Just Own Up!

As a parent or guardian of young people, you must learn to own up for your mistakes so your wards can learn from you that owning up for wrongs done is not a sign of weakness, but of tremendous courage, strength, humility and truthfulness!

Accepting our fault does not come easy from time immemorial! Adam had to blame Eve for eating the forbidden fruit in Genesis 3 instead of owning up for his own short coming.

We see this play out in all sort of relationship! Pride has blinded many to the point of not seeing the log in our own eyes and seeing those of others with magnifying glasses! Examine yourself!

Naturally, we have inflated ego, and accepting we have done something wrong is like been stripped and whipped! We will dance around this and point fingers and all sort of acrobatics!

Just own up!

This inability to simply say “I am sorry”, have broken many homes, severe families, and caused unnecessary heart aches! It’s a sore thumb we most often are willing to play ping pong with, ofcourse with a touch of super strength Tylenol every now and then!

To be continued!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

A Call Out! Repent?

It is a pity that the Leadership in “Churches” of this age do not see the handwriting on the wall. Like the days of Martin Luther and the then Catholic Church, the masses, though ignorant are been awakened! The Spirit man is being enlightened! The Truth is made known by the Holy Spirit poured out in these last days!

We must study history to understand the present, and prepare for the future! The Spirit of man once awakened will not go to sleep, this we all must acknowledge and adjust ourselves to!

Change is coming! Change is here! If the present day “Saints” do not repent and amend these evil ways, God’s elect prepared and immersed in “water” are about to rise up like a mighty flood! A call out to “The Establishment”! A call? A warning? Take it as you may!

Repent of your evil ways ‘cos God will require of you and I, recompense for the distortion of The Truth that are leading many into damnation!

A word for the discerning! Open your heart and hear what the Spirit is saying!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Open Wide Your Mouth! Psalms 81:10

What will the wicked not do to subvert the plan of God? Anything done for the glory of God will always come under attack of the devil.

OOOh! How much time has been wasted by many who have listened to strange voices?Voices of limitations, condemnation, persecution, accusation and all kinds of negative voice!

You are unloveable, not good enough, not educated, too educated, not capable, not beautiful, too fat, too thin, too short, too tall, you don’t know the words, not enough understanding of the Scriptures, too young, too old, not married, single, separated, divorced, jobless, not rich enough, and so on!

I heard you, Father! I am just the perfect soul for what God wants to do! Everything about me, soul, spirit, and body is perfect! The circumstances and situation of my life? God said that is part of His plan! What a relief? I have let this hold me back for too long!!!  It is time for the doing! You heard right! No limit! I heard God even backs up troublemaker! I will touch on this soon.

The apostles of old were limited in many regards in that they were not educated, struggling in business, and maybe idle like Nathaniel who was found under the Fig tree in John 1:48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered“I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”

How do you measure up? What qualifies you to speak, live and act the word of God? Your degrees? I don’t think so! Except for the part that says “if you are thirsty come and drink, without money? Come and buy is a lie!

John 7:37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. 39 By this, he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Isaiah 55:1 “Come, all you who are thirsty,  come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

I have subjected my ears to those limiting voices for so long and too long! They were almost drumming out the still small voice of God in my heart. I had allowed them to discourage me to the point that I restraint from writing down what God is speaking to my ears and heart. I did not want some to think my writings was about them! Can you imagine that? My mouth is open Lord! Please fill it upPsalm 81:10

When the Lord had instructed that whatever he says to one, he says to all – Mark 13:37! God reveals things to us individually for our use first and for others. If your sermon, writing, words are not first for you, I doubt if you heard from God. God’s words should be a yardstick for you first before you can convincingly deliver it, and it becomes a word for the season for someone else.

Therefore, I repent today! I repent of disobeying the voice of God! I am not going to cherry pick and deliver again. Father, as you speak your transforming words to my heart, let it change me, and help me to deliver such as instructed. Help me not to look at the faces! But stay focused on you, my helper and friend!

Yes, Lord, I heard you! Those I am worried about are actually feasting on the words while I am worried of been misquoted. Please help me to live, write, and take action in love! I am too tough on myself, help me to be gentle so I can be soothing. I guess I am more critical of myself than The Word is of Me!

Thank you, Lord for the victory you have given me in my mind! It just a matter of time before I see myself mounting up with wings as eagles! This is so for you also friends! May you win the war raging in your mind. May all strange voices speaking to you be silenced in Jesus mighty name.

Thank you, Lord, for showing me that I am very good, good enough for what you have entrusted to me. Greater works you promised I would do if I remain in you! Thanks, Daddy Lord, my Father, God, Saviour and Lover! You shield, protect, provide, and support, my husband, my King, be magnified!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

You Can Talk! He Listens! He Will Act!

It’s that moment again! I don’t know about you, but sometimes, just to be sure, I ask God, “is that you?” You know those time when you are not very sure of yourself. I mean you know you heard quite alright, or maybe saw clearly, or better still something was impressed on your mind, a word from the scripture, a message stamped on your heart, beating so loudly!

Yet, you are like, is that you Lord? You know it is not from Satan, because you know He will fight to steal or tamper with whatever will be against him! Still, you want to be sure, it is not your head playing tricks on you. You want to be sure this is God. You ask, like many others before you for a sign. Like Gibeon in Judges 6, you want God to show you a sign that He is really the one speaking, and not a lying Spirit, the Spirit of error, or zeal motivated by self – what’s in it for me?.

Judges 6: 36 So Gideon said to God, If You will save Israel by my hand as You have said— 37 look, I shall put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor; if there is dew on the fleece only, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that You will save Israel by my hand, as You have said. 38 And it was so. When he rose early the next morning and squeezed the fleece together, he wrung the dew out of the fleece, a bowlful of water. 39 Then Gideon said to God, “Do not be angry with me, but let me speak just once more: Let me test, I pray, just once more with the fleece; let it now be dry only on the fleece, but on all the ground let there be dew.” 40 And God did so that night. It was dry on the fleece only, but there was dew on all the ground.

In my case, I said to God, why are you keeping silent? Talk to me! I heard Him speak right away, not like in recent times, so I was like, is that you Lord?. He responded right away! So I said, show me a sign that you are the one really talking to me and not myself talking to myself! I do speak to myself! Crazy right? Well, my spirit talks to my soul and my soul moves my body as required. So I do talk to myself! You will catch that one day!

So the Lord asked me a question! What do you see on your horizon? I answered right away without so much as a thought. God said that is Me. You would not have been able to see what your saw without Me with you!

So friends, what do you see on your horizon? Can you see at all? Is it clear or blurry? Talk to God about it! He is readily available to calm your fears and strengthen you with might by His Holy Spirit in your inner manEphesian 3:16. You must be born again though! You must consciously cultivate a relationship with Jesus Christ. Ask Him into your heart, to forgive you and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. Tell Him to come and abide with you. Oh, friends, He really wants to be with you! Jesus Christ is the friend that sticks closer than a brotherProverbs 18:24. Talk to Him right now!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Clothed In Glory!

Hebrews 2:6 But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him?You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor,  And set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”

Eagles wingsJust as Jeremiah 1:5 said this of you. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;  I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

You have been crowned with glory and honor! Yes! Glory and honor are yours. It is your right and portion, your inheritance! You did nothing to obtain or receive it. It was a gift from God, your creator, Father, and Savior.

Psalms 8:4 also said this of you:

What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

You sure need some catching up to do! You must walk in the fullness of all that is yours in Christ Jesus. You must walk in the fullness of what has been wrought for you before the foundation of the world was laid.

You have wings like eagles, use them to soar! You are a success, an enigma – be as it may, a force of grace and love, and you carry the radiant Glory of His love – Hebrew 1:3.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

When The Fire Falls!

Fire fire fire, fire fall on me. Like the day of Pentecost, fire fall on me!

When this fire falls on you, you will never be the same again. Your eyes of understanding will be enlightened –  Ephesians 1:17-18. You will know the truth and it shall set you free from every form of bondage – John 8:31-32.
