GRACE DRIVEN LIFE

“The GRACE of God is SUFFICIENT for me!”
Gal.1.12 I'm sure that you've heard the story of my earlier life when I lived in the Jewish way. In those days I went all out in persecuting God's church. I was systematically destroying it.

The aforementioned SCRIPTURE is an extract from APOSTLE PAUL’S reflection on how he transition from a LIFE OF RELIGION to a LIFE OF GRACE, by the mercies of God!
In the time of his former JEWISH-RELIGIOUS LIFESTYLE, he was so convinced that he was living his life according to God’s WILL – he believed so much that he was serving God accordingly. However, that was not so, as a matter of a fact, he had missed the mark completely!
This is a similar, if not, exact mistake most people make when it comes to understanding what the CHRISTIAN LIFE is all about.
CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A RELIGION & IT WILL NEVER BE. JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF TAUGHT AGAINST RELIGION THAT’S WHY HE WAS NEVER ACCEPTED AS THE MESSIAH!
Jehovah God didn’t send His Son on earth to start another “religion”. He looked at the world and saw how confused and lost His people were. From idol worshipping to self-worshipping, Man invented so many ways of trying to reach the CREATOR.
THE ONLY SOLUTION WAS JESUS CHRIST✨
A LIFE OF GOD’S SUFFICIENT GRACE – TO WORSHIP HIM IN TRUTH & IN SPIRIT, A CONSTANT RELATIONSHIP & CONSISTENT FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM
That’s what the CHRISTIAN LIFE is!

The question is, have you let go of all traditions & religious beliefs in pursuit of this LIFE OF GRACE in Christ Jesus?🤷🏼‍♂️
Is God’s IMMORTAL Word the reality of WHO you are?🤷🏼‍♂️

PRAY & LISTEN

Prov.28.9 God has no use for the prayers of the people who won't listen to him.

The importance of PRAYER in the believer’s life can never be over emphasized – that’s what keeps us in sync with the Spirit of God.
However, we ought to understand that PRAYER is not a monolog but a dialog. It’s a two way street. In other words, we are suppose to wait for God’s response after or during prayer! According to God’s Word, we pray with expectation that God will give us feedback that we can then apply to whatever we talk to Him about.
A prayer done without you listening to God’s voice & applying His response, is just a complaint.

Pray & listen!

Managing Difficult Emotions

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23). Yesterday we explored the dangers of anger and how if left unchecked can lead to sinful behaviours. Today I want us to explore how to manage those difficult and harmful emotions that can affect our relationships. “Confess your faults […]

Wonderfully Created In God’s Image!

by Hazel Straub God created you in his image. Self-hatred and failing to love yourself rejects God Your Creator. Accept that God has made you in his likeness. You are a wonderful work of God! Cry out to God for his mercy, so you can love and accept yourself. His mercy will then flow and […]

Conquerors In Dangerous Times

Do we understand followers of Jesus are not immune from troubles in this troublesome world? We are conquerors through Him, and we will not allow demons to separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:37-39) I was fearful being home without my husband when he worked at night. At my request an alarm system […]

No Exclusions on Grace

There are always exclusions, right? Everything comes with fine print. You go to the doctor and have to sign forms—lots of forms! You rent a car and have to sign forms—lots of forms! Your insurance policy comes with pages and pages of paperwork. Why? Because there are always exclusions. Always exceptions. That company is always […]

The danger of a complacent church

Society is in a terrible place. We have become irreligious, emotional, empty and extremely angry. Everyone seems to be driven by a need to be coddled and pampered, ruggedness is no longer the norm. We have everything we want and frivolousness is the mainstay of life. Movies, music, video games, drunkenness, immorality and extreme selfishness […]

Immortal, Invisible God

In April of this year I shared an idea borrowed from blogger Michele Morin, about journaling through hymns and praise songs. Such an exercise allows us to meditate on the lyrics, discovering more meaning than when we quickly sing through the words. In that post I shared from my thoughts on “Come, Thou Fount of […]

Think About The Goodness Of God

by Hazel Straub I will meditate also of all your work, and talk of your doings. (Psalm 77:12 KJV) God does mighty wonderful acts for us every day. He protects us from harm, provides for our needs, gives us family, friends and fellow believers. He shows mercy to us and does not treat us as […]

The Kingdom of the Lord endures forever.

In Ezekiel 30, we read about the fall of Egypt and the rise of Babylon. The history of our world is the history of the rise and fall of nations. Whatever happens, the Lord remains the Lord of history. Kingdoms rise. Kingdoms fall. The Kingdom of the Lord endures forever. This is a great encouragement […]

Did You Gather Your Manna Today?

God’s Word is our “Manna from Heaven”. “Manna from Heaven” has become an idiom of the English language. It means “An unexpected benefit or assistance, especially when it comes at the time when it is needed most.” For example, “Unable to pay my bills, the stimulus check was like manna from Heaven.” Manna sounds like […]

The Pressure To Prove A Point

Greetings saints! This week I sense that there is something that we often struggle with and that’s the pressure to win, win and win or positive prophecies of success, success, and success.Actually, these positive prophecies yields greater dividends than the negative ones because people have developed itchy ears. They want to hear certain things that […]

Holy Spirit, Prayer Coach

“Then He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, ‘Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour?’” (Mark 14:37, NKJV). When you read this question that Jesus asked Peter, what is your inner response? Can you identify with Peter? Sometimes, we as Christians carry around a vaguely guilty feeling about not […]

Our Souls Long for the Lord’s Salvation

However many times we find ourselves lost and alone, God is there listening, waiting for us to draw near. He is our steadfast fortress, our rock and our salvation. No trial is too hard, no tribulation is too difficult for us to overcome with the Lord’s help. “My soul longs for your salvation; I hope […]

Growing and transcending

I’m aware that each time I write a truly vulnerable account of how I’m feeling about my disabled son I probably lose a few readers – understandably so because not everyone wants to read about someone’s suffering, especially those seeking a more uplifting story – so I’m drawn to say thank you to those who […]

God Heals the Wounded

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). It is impossible to go through life, without experiencing some kind of hurt or heartache. Some hurts are emotional or psychological and while some wounds are surface level others are deep seated. Some human beings are said to be more resilient than others. If […]

Lord God, help me to endure

We so easily allow our feeling and circumstances to get the best of us. We give in to the emotions that tell us we’re suffering in ways that we shouldn’t be suffering, and we blame God and get distracted from God’s promises to us. We forget that this world will soon fade away, but God […]

Lord God, help me to endure

HELP ME BELIEVE

“Lord, help me with my UNBELIEF…”

Mark.9.24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

When we live our lives in accordance to God’s Will, we live a life of the Spirit by FAITH. Holding steadfast on to the reality of His Word day by day, maturing in REVELATION & growing in His GRACE. Just like Habbukuk says, ” The just shall live by FAITH!”.

  • So does this mean that we are not allowed to question God about some of His plans for our lives?
  • Is God really expecting us to just believe Him without any moment of doubt?
  • How are we suppose to handle our doubts and UNBELIEF?

The TRUTH of the matter is that you will have moments of DOUBT in your WALK with God. The Enemy will try to draw you back to your former life – a life of UNBELIEF & GODLESS existence. However, the most important thing is your response to such a temptation. Remain FOCUSED on His WORD! Talk to Him about your DOUBTS. Ask Him to take away that hardened heart & give you the heart to believe Him more. Seek clarity from the Holy Spirit – His Spirit.

Decide to start DOUBTING your DOUBTS & make God’s Word the STANDARD for your life. BELIEVE THE WORD, KNOW THE TRUTH & HEAR THE WORD. Nothing more, nothing less!

Faith and Refreshment

For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul. Jeremiah 31:25 NKJV There is no substitute for the refreshing of our soul. God delights in refreshing us as we spend time in His presence. Let all weariness go, let the refreshment flow. Darryl Rodman. Heart Treasure Life is busy, no […]

THE FEAR OF GOD

“The FEAR of God is the beginning of Wisdom!”

Prov.8.13 The Fear-of-GOD means hating Evil, whose ways I hate with a passion–pride and arrogance and crooked talk.

FEARING GOD IS HATING EVIL! PERIOD!
In other words, there’s no level of tolerance that you can ever have for EVIL if you really FEAR God. According to God’s Word, you have not developed enough REVERENCE for Him if you still entertain EVIL in your life.

Before you throw any theological tantrums, go back to the aforementioned verse & read the English used there one more time…
Note that it says, “The Fear of GOD means hating EVIL” not “The Fear of GOD means hating Evil people”
And again it’s, “hating Evil” not “hurting the Evil”
So it’s not what you may assume, but it’s exactly what it says!

IF YOU TRULY FEAR GOD, YOU WILL HATE EVIL 100%!

SPIRITUAL FITNESS

“Build up yourself on your Most Holy FAITH!”

1Tim.4.7 Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness.

Man (Man-kind) is a spirit being, lives in a body & has a soul. Your soul is the link between your spirit & body. There’s no how you can survive as a fully functional human being if you neglect one of the three or maintain one of these more than the other two. According to God’s Word, you are to maintain the fitness of your body & mind (soul) but most importantly, your spirit (inner-man).
SPIRITUAL FITNESS IS VERY ESSENTIAL IN ORDER FOR ONE TO LIVE A LIFE THAT IS CONSISTENT WITH GOD’S WILL!

How many meals do you take a day to provide your body with nutrition ? How many gym sessions do you have a week for your physique ? How much time & money have you invested in your appearance ? Clothes ? Makeup ? What about on your Medical Aid ? Your gynecologist ? Or therapist ?

Today I challenge you to start INVESTING your time & energy in becoming SPIRITUALLY FIT & ACTIVE! Study God’s Word more than ever. Live by FAITH, exercise your FAITH everyday & hearken to the VOICE of the Holy Spirit in your heart! START FLEXING THOSE SPIRITUAL BICEPS FOR GOD’S GLORY!

Travelling towards “eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand (Psalm 16:11).

Past Mistakes Are No more

You are guaranteed acceptance.   By accepting Christ as your Savior, you have essentially nailed all your sins including your past mistakes at the cross. Your sins died with Him at the cross and you are reborn to a new life in Christ. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the […]

FAITH & WORD MIXTURE

“Because of your FAITH, it will happen!”

Heb.4.2 For this Good News–that God has prepared a place of rest–has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t believe what God told them.

With God nothing is IMPOSSIBLE, as long as you believe Him wholeheartedly. All it takes is having FAITH in His WORD for your life – He just wants you to believe Him. The degree to which you are going to have FAITH in God, based on His Word says, determines the REST you will experience throughout your CHRISTIAN life. In CHRIST, you can only become what you BELIEVE!

LIFE WITHOUT THE FEAR OF DEATH

“I have come so that you may have LIFE. Life in ABUNDANCE!”

Heb.2.14 -15 Because God’s children are human beings–made of flesh and blood–Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he deliver those who have lived all their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

There’s a whole lot of LIFE that we can miss out on, if we live our lives in FEAR of death. The mere fact that one day you will take your last breath on the face of this earth can be used by the Devil, to bind your heart & mind with a certain SPIRIT OF FEAR.

God has not given us the Spirit of FEAR, but of LOVE & of a SOUND MIND. We have no reason to fear anything or anyone in this life or the life to come. NOT EVEN DEATH! As a matter of a fact, Christ’s death on the Cross marked the END OF FEARING DEATH. Prior to this, the Devil had power over mankind because of death, he had taken advantage of the fact that Man was not certain about his standing with God & was not sure where he was headed after death.

Then CHRIST came into the scene. Now we have no reason to fear DEATH or what shall become of us after this life. The Devil’s power over our lives, because of death, has been DESTROYED IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

The Most Important Question

Many people have a vast amount of knowledge and a great deal of understanding, but they don’t have the wisdom which leads to salvation, because they refuse to open their hearts to Jesus Christ, the Saviour.

The Most Important Question

ABIDE IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST

“Be a MEEK STUDENT of God’s Word!”

2John.1.9 Anyone who gets so progressive in his thinking that he walks out on the teaching of Christ, walks out on God. But whoever stays with the teaching, stays faithful to both the Father and the Son.

The REASON why God us His WORD was so that we may have a clear & direct INFERENCE as to who He is to us & who we are to Him. His WORD remains the FOUNDATION of our FAITH – what we are to believe must be built on His WORD!

It’s not for us to come up with some ideas or theories on what His Will might be for our lives. He has not left us in the dark. God gave us His WORD as a LIGHT. A light that shines so bright it dissolves DOUBT, CONFUSION & burns all manner of DEMONIC IDEOLOGIES that the world offers as a substitute of TRUTH.

One of the GREATEST deceptions you can ever fall into as child of God, is that of MIND over MATTER – allowing your MIND to drift you away from the REVELATION of God’s WORD. Being carried away by some so called “progressive thinking”, you are slowly losing touch with the TRUTH – the REALITY of God’s Word.

According to God, mankind perishes because of LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. We are doomed if we don’t remain in His WORD. OUR FAITH COMES BY HEARING HIS WORD, WHY SHOULD WHY WE ENTRAIN THOUGHTS THAT ARE NOT IN LINE WITH HIS WORD?

LET YOUR MIND BE INSPIRED BY GOD’S WORD – MEDITATE ON HIS SAYINGS DAY & NIGHT!

Not enough silence

Context: After about three hours of very concentrated writing in bed, I began to surface into awareness of my body and my surroundings. I was just saying (slightly self-pityingly), to God that I never have enough time to pray, and that even a lifetime isn’t nearly enough, when I saw how different this will be in […]

Not enough silence

MY HAPPIEST MEMORY

Frankly speaking, I recall some moments in my life which I can say were my ‘”happiest”. However, there’s one memorable moment I believe stands out from the rest and that’s the day I received Jesus Christ as my personal Lord & Savior, that will always be my happiest memory. To the carnal mind, it might not sound like something special or exciting, but I submit to you, that it was the ultimate defining moment for the author of the deliberation you are reading now. I kid you not. I started living & stopped existing!

“You are not your own! You belong to God!”

Like most young people TODAY, I struggled for years with approval addiction & succumbing to negative peer pressure though my academic performance indicated that all was well. There a was a certain yearning in my heart – a desire to be loved and to be embraced for who I was. I needed to find myself. Where was I going after all those years of schooling? Was my life all about academic success and having a successful career? Was it all about making a fortune? The funny thing about it was that I had arguably normal childhood. Raised by both my father and mother who gave me the best childhood any parent would give their child. It’s not like I was a victim of abuse or depression. No! I was a victim of PURPOSELESSNESS. I was empty. VOID. Little did I know that God had a greater purpose for me. A higher life. A life of spiritual fulfilment and physical prosperity. He wanted me to awaken me to the reality of who He was a Father not some deity.

On February 2019, I met my personal Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Whether in the spirit or in the flesh, I cannot say. What I can attest to, is that He showed me who I was. Since that ENCOUNTER, I have never been the same. Nothing beats the joys and fulfilment I experience in that moment. I no longer live my AIMLESSLY. I NOW HAVE VALUE, PURPOSE, IDENTITY & POWER TO CAUSE CHANGE – I KNOW EXACTLY WHO I AM & WHAT MY DESTINY LOOKS LIKE!

God’s greatest gift – Jesus

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost: Genesis 21:8-21; Psalm 86:1-10, 16-17 or Jeremiah 20:7-13; Psalm 69:7-10, (11-15), 16-18; Romans 6:1b-11; Matthew 19:24-30 Let us rejoice in God’s greatest gift – Jesus. We have here the contrast between Isaac, the child of promise, and Ishmael, the fruit of unbelief. Ishmael was born as a result of impatience, the […]

There’s bad news – and there’s Good News!

In Ezekiel 8, we have a description of sin – “very disgusting things”, even more disgusting things” (Ezekiel 8:6,9,13,17). When we read such “bad news”, we wonder, “Is there good news?” The answer of God’s Word is “Yes”! God does not leave us in our sin. He sends His Son to be our Saviour. This […]

There’s bad news – and there’s Good News!

LET THE VISION SPEAK!

“The VISION is yet for an appointed TIME!”

Hab.2.2 – And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

The Bible speaks of God’s response to Habbukuk’s complaints about a vision the Lord showed him.


There are two things he is told to do
1.Write the vision
2. Make it plain on tables


The reason was so that anyone who reads it may run in response to the vision.
BUT if you read the following verse then trust me you would not want to listen to the “read and run” issue

Hab.2.3 – For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

God goes on to elaborate a few things about the vision. He states that the vision is for an appointed time and everyone knows that, obviously.
And then the Bible says “… But at the end it shall speak, and not lie… “
This is the most important part.
The vision is going to come to pass at a certain time BUT IT WILL ONLY SPEAK AT THE END OF THAT TIME!!!
The Bible continues to say “…though it tarry, wait for it… “
Understand that it is the “speaking” of the vision that is being referred to here…. The vision will take time to speak but wait for it to SPEAK
Then the Bible says “… because it will surely come, it will not tarry… “
Now the vision will not take a long time to HAPPEN but it will only take time to SPEAK!!



The PROBLEM we have as believers is that we are not waiting for the vision to speak!!!!!!
Everyone wants to just READ AND RUN as quick as possible!!
And so we find ourselves in a PIT OF PROBLEMS!!
Our brother Joseph (the dreamer) had a tendency of running around to every family member to broadcast his dreams as soon as God showed him what he was called to do.
The same thing that happens when you read your Bible…
Remember that it is GOD’S WORD so he speaking to you through it….
Don’t just rush through it!!! Take time to meditate on the scriptures until they SPEAK TO YOU!!!!

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO WAIT TO HEAR WHAT GOD IS SAYING ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SEEING!✍

THE CIVILIZATION OF THE IMMORTALS

“Life, as God has it!”

1Pet.1.23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1Pet.1.24 – For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
1Pet.1.25 – But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

First and foremost, I want us to understand that the subject of IMMORTALITY is one most difficult and controversial yet sensitive topics in BIBLICAL THEOLOGY as well as in The Body of CHRIST.
To a point where most BELIEVERS choose not to ponder much on it since their own spiritual leaders cannnot elaborate much on it, as a result of insufficient SCRIPTURAL analysis and lack of CELESTIAL comprehension.

Have you ever asked yourself what is it that makes God not subject to DEATH, besides being a spirit being?🤔
How come God can’t die and can’t age?🤔
What’s making God such an INSTRUCTIBLE entity?🤔
How does God really do this?🤔

The answer is quite simple!😅

IT’S THE WORD✍

I know it sounds simple but I want you to see something…

1Pet.1.23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Look carefully at that verse!
The word “seed” is the word that means “sex gamete” or “sperm” 😅

Remember that physically you are a result of male and female sex cells, sperm and ovum.
But the SCRIPTURE tells us that once you become a child of God, you are now born of a SPIRITUAL GAMETE – The Word of God🔥
In other words, you have the DNA of God✍

Now understand that, if you have the DNA of God as His Word, then it means that God’s DNA is His WORD and thereby making God a PRODUCT of His own Word😅
So God was born by The Word!
His Father and Mother is the WORD, and He is not married😅

Why do you think John says, “In the beginning was the WORD…”🤷‍♂️
That’s cause God comes from His WORD of which He also says He is that WORD😅

Now the reason why God became IMMORTAL is simply because The WORD was IMMORTAL from the very beginning!
In the beginning of God, there was nothing that could be used to create Him other than God’s own WORD!

NOTHING CAN DESTROY GOD BECAUSE NOTHING CAN DESTROY THE WORD😅
AND NOTHING WILL DESTROY YOU IF YOU REMAIN IN THE WORD🔥✍

THE GOD-REALM

“HOW CAN I OPERATING IN THE REALM OF GOD ?”

Before we delve into the SCRIPTURES, I would like to highlight the fact that as a CHILD of God you are a SPIRIT, you have a SOUL and you live in a BODY…
As such, it’s so important that you are always CONSCIOUS of how you can OPERATE in the Spirit Realm as much as you already know how to OPERATE in this physical world!

YOU ARE A BI-REALMIC BEING!😤
And there’s no how you can take your RELATIONSHIP with God to the NEXT LEVEL if you cannot meet Him in His REALM!

Now let’s look at the FIRST verse!

Ps.82.1 – God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

The word “mighty” there, doesn’t jus refer to “powerful” or “very strong”….
But it is the word used to describe an “army of soldiers”

So that means God is standing in the congregation, and this a congregation of an army of soldiers!

And it goes on to say “…among the gods.”

By NATURE, a “cow” gives birth to a “calf” and a “dog” gives birth to a “puppy”…

Even in the matters of the Spirit, “God” gives birth to “gods”😤

I have to be very careful with this one because someone may mistake this REVELATION for HERESY😅

As a CHILD of God, You are a “god” in the sense that YOU ARE BORN OF GOD and therefore have the ABILITY AND SPIRITUAL MANDATE TO EXERCISE YOU GOD-KIND AUTHORITY ON EARTH…

NOT TO SAY THAT YOU DESERVE TO BE WORSHIP LIKE GOD HIMSELF‼️
NO‼️🙅🏽‍♂️That’s not what we are talking about here‼️😅

Let’s quickly look at Psalms 82:5 to 7…✍🏼

Ps.82.5 – They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
Ps.82.6 – I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
Ps.82.7 – But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

(Like I always say, IGNORANCE IS THE GREATEST SPIRITUAL PANDEMIC IN CHRISTIANITY‼️
The difference between YOU and another BELIEVER is this one thing we call KNOWLEDGE‼️)

The reason why you are where you are with your FAITH is as a result of how much your spirit-man has been fed with the KNOWLEDGE of Spirit!
Paul, the APOSTLE says FAITH COMETH BY HEARING, HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD…
If you don’t have FAITH for something, then it means you haven’t heard what the WORD OF GOD says concerning that thing!

That’s why the Psalmist says, “They know not…” and “…they walk on in darkness…”

The issue of DARKNESS is very critical for you to get it as well😅
Because the nature of the SPIRITUAL Realm is that it’s a very DARK place!

YOU NEED THE WORD OF GOD TO ACCUMULATE IN YOUR SPIRIT SO MUCH THAT YOU WILL ABLE TO SEE CLEAR IN THE SPIRIT…

“The entrance of thy WORD giveth LIGHT”
“Your WORD is a LAMP unto my feet, a LIGHT unto my path”

Verse 6 says, “I have “said”…”
Imply that this REALITY OF US BEING GODS AS CHILDREN OF GOD…
Is actually a RHEMA WORD – a living TRUTH that is ACTIVE even to this day!
IT’S A REALITY TO US RIGHT NOW‼️😤

It’s up to you to decide whether or not you will live your life like a god in these PERILOUS TIMES…
Or you are going to jus die like a mortal man via the PLANDEMIC😅

Rom.8.14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Rom.8.15 – For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Rom.8.16 – The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Lastly, for you to OPERATE IN THE GOD REALM you must be led by the Spirit (The HOLY GHOST)…

The easiest way to IDENTIFY your as a SON (A CHILD) OF GOD OR AS A GOD….
It is through submitting yourself to the leading of the HOLY GHOST🔥

So the whole “WE ARE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD” ISSUE is absolute nonsense!🤞🏼😅
IT’S NOT BIBLICAL AT ALL‼️😤

Children of God are those who are led by HIS SPIRIT✨

And guess what!😅
God is the only FATHER who can create you and not be your FATHER✍🏼
In other words, don’t ever think that you are CHILD OF GOD simply because He created you!
NO‼️
YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD BECAUSE YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR HIM AS PER THE LEADING OF THE HOLY GHOST…
THE HOLY GHOST LEADS YOU IN LINE WITH WHAT HIS WORD SAYS…

IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO OPERATE IN THE GOD REALM WITHOUT THE SPIRIT AND THE WORD✍🏼

THE VOCABULARY OF GOD🙌🧎

1 Corinthians 2:13 – And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE [to those who possess the Holy Spirit].

Romans 6:19 – I am speaking in HUMAN TERMS, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.

The SOVEREIGNITY of God does not allow Him to articulate or convey His spoken Word to the human spirit using a simple known human language.
In other words, there isn’t a language on this earth that can fully express the potency of the Spiritual Realm nor God Himself.🤔
There’s some spiritual KNOWLEDGE & INSIGHT that God can give you but you realize that you don’t have the words to thoroughly explain what you heard or saw in the Spirit.✍️
Sometimes you realize that the words you need to explain what God told you, are not there at all or they have just not been invented yet!😅
That’s why God ended up coming with a strategy of introducing UNKOWN TONGUES so that we can at least have a taste of DIVINE communication & interaction whilst we are in this world!🔥

JUST BECAUSE YOUR BIBLE HAS BEEN PRINTED IN ENGLISH, DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT WAS WRITTEN IN ENGLISH!

WHAT A HUGE HARVEST!🙆

Matt.9.38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send out more workers for his fields.”

I believe most of us have come across this SCRIPTURE several times before. Maybe even heard it being quoted by different ministers of the Gospel if not read it for ourselves. The DEPTH of the contextual understanding behind it can never be over emphasized because of the REVELATORY weight it carries. The MAGNITUDE of what transpires there will stir up your inner man!

The first thing I want us to appreciate is that this was actually Jesus CHRIST instructing the disciples to ask God to send more WORKERS for His fields. Look at what the two verses prior say…

Matt.9.36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Matt.9.37 He said to his disciples, “The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few.

Now when you look at verse 36, it seems as if there’s a bit of CONTRADICTION there😅
How is it that Jesus CHRIST, whom the Psalmist called our SHEPERD, looks at God’s people and sees sheep without a SHEPERD?🤔Yet He is right there with them😅One other thing that’s funny is that for the FIRST TIME ever Jesus was so overwhelmed by number of people He had to minister to, to a point where He couldn’t pray for God to help Him😅He had to ask someone else (His Disciples) to pray for God to send ASSISTANCE ( More WORKERS).
IT WAS TOO MUCH EVEN FOR THE SON OF MAN, AS IT WERE.

Are we saying that CHRIST was actually incapable of ministering to each one of them even though He was the Son of God? NOT AT ALL!!!
This is the same reason why God is ALL POWERFUL yet He still needs ANGELS as ministering spirits😅 But anyways😅😅😅

What we should understand is that in doing God’s Work – Preaching the Gospel & Bring the world to the KNOWLEDGE of God’s saving GRACE – It’s not a ONE MAN THING!🙅‍♂️
The CHURCH of God & the Ministry of the Spirit is made up of different VESSEL that carry different UNCTIONS of God’s Spirit.
SOUL – WINNING SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AS A CONTEST BUT RATHER A COMMON COMMISSION.
GOD EXPECTS US TO WORK IN OUR DIFFERENT OFFICES & ADMINISTRATION OF THE SPIRIT, IN UNISON TOWARD MAKING HIS WILL A REALITY!!!
HEAVEN FULL & HELL EMPTY!!!
AND BEARING IN MIND THAT IT IS “HIS” FIELDS NOT “OURS”😅

The BELIEVER’S Siren Song

I know that all of God’s commands are spiritual, but am not🤦‍♂️
Yes, am full of myself- after all, I have spent a long time in sin’s prison!
What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise
So if I can’t be trusted to figure out what is best for myself and then do it, it becomes obvious that God’s command is necessary
But I need something more!🥺
The power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help!
I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it.
I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway.
My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.
It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up.😭
I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight.
Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.
I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope.
Is there no one who can do anything for me?
The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind!🙌🧎

🚢SHIPWRECKED🌊

Luke.8.25 – And he said unto them, WHERE IS YOUR FAITH? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the WINDS and WATER, and they obey Him.
1Tim.1.19 – Holding FAITH, and a good conscience; which some having PUT AWAY concerning FAITH have made SHIPWRECK:

The word “SHIPWRECK” refers to the DESTRUCTION or LOSS of a ship.
It is usually caused by CHAOTIC instances such as SUDDEN changes in WEATHER which often leads to a those traveling on WATER using boats,ship or canoes, to endure the WORST CONDITIONS!
One thing there is to understand about SHIPWRECKS, is that the first thing that they INVOKE is FEAR!
The moment there’s an unusual SHIFT in the WEATHER, the boat becomes UNSTABLE, it tossed to and fro by THE STORMY WINDS.
FEAR on it’s own is an INDICATION of the ABSENCE OF FAITH.
That means the people in the boat also experience INSTABILITY in their FAITH, they are SHAKEN in what they believe SPIRITUALLY.
The issue with THE DISCIPLE in the boat is that they had decided to PUT AWAY their FAITH at a time they NEEDED it MOST.
Hence, the Lord was prompted to give a RHETORIC remark, “WHERE IS YOUR FAITH?”
Once in a while we all find ourselves in situations similar to this one, but fail to understand that OUR FOCUS should be on OUR FAITH!
The only way to AVOID a SHIPWRECK is to HOLD STEADFAST onto your FAITH!
“HOW GROUNDED AND ROOTED ARE YOU IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT JEHOVAH GOD CAN SEE YOU THROUGH THE STORM?”
That’s the question you need to answer for you to ESCAPE that SHIPWRECK!
