Seeking To Know? Repent!

I was somewhere yesterday where I saw the hopelessness of a life devoid of Christ. I remembered the story of King Saul, anointed as King over Israel, prophesied with the Prophets and yet ended up consulting mediums. He lost touch with God in the quest to find relevance. Brethren, relevance is no where else except in the presence of God. It is our relationship with God, through Christ Jesus that gives the tenacity to keep keeping on, giving us hope and helps us to bear fruit that abide in every condition.

jer-29-13So many are lost, lining up to consult mediums in droves, both young and old. It was baffling to me. Everyone wants to know what the future hold for them, we want to know what our past has to do with our present and future. We all want to make meaning of what is going on in our lives. My heart melted looking at these ladies all dressed up, maked up, with expensive clothing, perfume and jewelry to cover up the ache in their heart. Only a relationship with Christ can do that, but they do not know. How I wished I could open them up for this possibility. A lot scoffs at the idea, and some haven’t even heard of Christ saving grace in the land of freedom to worship. How disheartening!

I Samuel 28:Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land.The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem,while Saul gathered all Israel and set up camp at Gilboa. When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. He inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets. Saul then said to his attendants, “Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her.”

15 Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”

“I am in great distress,” Saul said. “The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has departed from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do.”

16 Samuel said, “Why do you consult me, now that the Lord has departed from you and become your enemy? 17 The Lord has done what he predicted through me. The Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors—to David. 18 Because you did not obey the Lord or carry out his fierce wrath against the Amalekites, the Lord has done this to you today. 19 The Lord will deliver both Israel and you into the hands of the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The Lord will also give the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines.”

seek-godKing Saul did not listen to Samuel while he was alive, did not obey God’s instruction either but when faced with fear of destruction he sought a medium. Should he not have sought the living God in ashes and sackcloth? In humility and repentance?  So also is many of us, looking for help in the wrong places.

Father we ask for mercy. Forgive us of all unrighteousness Oh Lord, in our words, thought and action. Please let the light of the gospel touch our hearts and set it aglow for all to see. We need your help Lord. Deliver us from error, enlighten  us – sight for our eyes, hearing to our ears, and a receptive heart. No one that comes to the Father will be cast out, we humbly come to you Lord, have mercy on us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

The Joy of Forgiveness!

How awesome it is to know that all your filthiness has been cleaned off, wiped off, never to resurface by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. What joy it is to bask in joy and love of a redeemer that went through hell to save you! Jesus took special care to fashion you after His image and then you got corrupted by the wicked one, but for His love’s sake He came in the flesh and dwelt amongst mortals, suffered rejection, reproach and every evil you can think of to bring you out of filth into cleanness, from darkness into light, from the path to hell to heaven bound.

The above is just for all those whose sins have been forgiven, whose filth has been cleaned by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. Friends, are you washed by the blood? Are you heaven bound? Now is the time to be saved. These are perilous times! Today is the day of prayer of salvationSalvation, seek the Lord while He may be found. Oh, you think you do not need the Lord because all is well with you? How about your eternity? You are an eternal being either you like it or not and there is only one choice of heaven or hell. Where do you want to be? Choose ye this day whom you will serve! Come to Jesus, repent of your sins, acknowledge your need for a saviour. Jesus is the way, the truth and life, no one comes to the Father except by Him!

The Joy of Forgiveness

A Psalm of David. A Contemplation.

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.

10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Saved By Love! Grace!

703a76cc-669d-49d5-a696-df75b82e1b9eIt is not by what I have done for God or my piety. It is by the mercies of God that I am not consumed. God loves me and He is showing me and the world the depth of His love. Christ died for me and you too friends!  God picked me up in my weakness, when I had stumbled and confused. He gave me His light and established me firmly in His presence.

I declare that I belong to Jesus Christ. I serve and believe in Christ. Every word of God will come to pass in every area of my life in this season of His visitation.

I declare that I am a vessel of honor in the hand of the Most High! A channel through which many will be blessed!

Friends, you can only pray and declare thus with full assurance only if you have accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Will you come to Jesus today, confess and forsake your sins  “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23. Invite Jesus into your heart today. Let Him give you eternal life without which every being is hell bound. By grace are we saved friends, no amount of good deeds can save you from the wrath to come. You have nothing to fear once you are in Christ for  “we are however justified by grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus – Verse 24. 

Now is the time! Open your heart! Jesus loves you!

 

The Great Commission!!! Your Destiny!

Do itThe making of a king, a victor, and champion is like the birthing of a child. It demand courage, utmost care and attention.

It start with conception,  nine month of gestation with all the attending issues, the pain of child birth, the financial, emotional, spiritual and psychological demand of nurturing a child from infancy to maturity. Then the cycle begins with the King, victor and champion conceiving their own dreams or visions and then the cycle begins again .

Go ye into the world and make disciples of all nations the Lord Jesus commissioned all Matthew 28:19. Destinies are meant to give birth to more or else it fizzles out. Your destiny will birth other destiny if you are willing and obedient to birth and nurture that which you have conceived?

It was placed in you to be birthed, do not abort it. This is to the Lord’s glory alone and it sure will give God glory. Nurture and feed your dreams with the Word of God. Be passionate enough about what God has done and is doing in your life to make a difference  in others life.

There are tonnes oppressed that need deliverance, many living without hope and countless lost for eternity. What are you going to do about it?.

Do not let your spark go dim, don’t let it die out, ignite a fire that will burn and rage with so much intensity that will shake thrones and dominion to set captives free to fulfill God’s purpose. 

Are you walking in line with your God ordained vision? Does Christ and the things of His kingdom have first place in your heart?

Make changes today!

Everlasting Father, thank you for your loving kindness. Lord I pray that you will rekindle a right spirit within me and my friends. Let us not loose sight of your call on our lifes, your plan for salvation, the great commission and eternity in Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen!
