Hebrews 5:12-14 There has been enough time for you to be teachers — yet you still need someone to teach you the first lessons of God's message. Instead of eating solid food, you still have to drink milk. Anyone who has to drink milk is still a child, without any experience in the matter of right and wrong. Solid food, on the other hand, is for adults, who through practice are able to distinguish between good and evil. Paul uses milk as a metaphor for weak or elementary in I Corinthians 3:1-2: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able." Paul judges the Corinthians as weak based upon their behaviors and attitudes, which reflected no spiritual progress. So he "fed" these immature Christians elementary knowledge because things of greater depth would have gone unappreciated, misunderstood, and unused. These references directly tie spiritual diet to growth in understanding, behavior, and attitude. Am trying to feel the frustrating scenario of Apostle Paul, having spent a lot of time with Corinthians teaching them and guiding them on the word of God expecting them to mature up and help him in teaching others, unfortunately they couldn't ! Their level of Spiritual growth was in ICU(Intensive Care Unit).they needed special care, it's very frustrating when you find people who ought to be mature behaving as babes. They still rumour monger,they hate each, backbiting each other, jealous of others,and yet they are supposed to have overgrown such behaviours after being taught the word of God, it's very disappointing . When one is a Child,his ability to handle issues is limited,he /she may not be held responsible over issues because his level of understanding is very low, his emotions cannot be trusted,his Spiritual body too is weak. In I Corinthians 3, the embarrassing immaturity that required him to feed the people like babies also produced strife and factions in the congregation, proving that the people were far more carnal than converted. An additional insight regarding an insufficient spiritual diet appears in the next chapter. Paul tells them that their problems are directly related to being lazy. Paul charges them with being lazy listeners; they are not putting forth the effort to meditate and apply what is taught them. They are, at best, merely accepting. That they are not using what they hear is proof enough for Paul to understand that they are not thinking through the seriousness or the practical applications of the teachings. In other words, they are not assimilating what they hear, and the result is a lack of faith and a consequent faithlessness. Paul attempts to shame and shock them into realizing how far they had slipped by calling these grown people—some of them undoubtedly elderly—infants. He goes so far as to tell them that they are unacquainted with and unskilled in the teaching on righteousness. In other words, he attributes to them the one particular trait of infants: that they do not understand the difference between right and wrong, a characteristic that defines immaturity. A parent must instruct and chasten a child until it understands. The Bible provides ample evidence that a poor spiritual diet results in a spiritually weak and diseased person, just as a poor physical diet works to erode and eventually destroy a person's physical vitality. Similarly, we can see that a person can be in good spiritual health but lose it through laziness or another form of neglect. Just as a mature adult needs good, solid nourishment to maintain his vitality and remain free of disease, the spiritual parallel follows. For one to grow to spiritual maturity and vitality, a mature Christian needs solid, spiritual nourishment, assimilated and actively applied, to continue growing and prevent regressing, as opposed to the Hebrews sluggish spiritual deterioration. God bless you. Good morning, Have a blessed day.
Philippians 1:15-18 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. This afternoon after the Service, I got in my house, and this question kept ringing in my mind, " Why do people serve God?? What is their intention??? What is their motives???What is the force behind their services to God??? Well, looking at the scriptures,I found Paul addressing the same subject to the Philippians Church. This time don't forget that Paul was in prison,and it's like other ministers took advantage of his imprisonment. The clear application from this text for all of us in ministry (and every saint is in ministry) is to check your motives. Why do you do what you do in ministry? Check them now for they will be checked later! Because if your motives are wrong, during the trials you will be hit hard!! People were preaching the Gospel as a result of Paul's imprisonment. But those people fell into two different categories. The first group were sharing Christ with others out of good will and love. But the second group were doing it out of envy, strife, selfish ambition, and impure motives. These people were in it for what they could get: things like fame and notoriety, respect and honor, authority and control, money and favors. They envied Paul's popularity, the apostle's ministry. They wanted to prove that they were just as - or even more - effective a minister than he. The amazing thing to me is that Paul rejoiced at both situations. Why? Because although he knew that God would judge their motives, he knew that the Gospel was being proclaimed. In the Churches today,it's no different, we have a lot of competition,not because of the Christ,but because we have become men pleasers!! We want to be seen the best! ( It's not wrong to be the best,) but my question is; to who are you best?? to Christ the head of the Church or to men?? Yesterday I listened to a Christian forum,where they ask questions and others answer. So there was this lady who triggered my Spirit with her question,Huuuh!! Apparently she was discouraged, hopeless,and downcasted, But why? Because she "helped a brother to come to the Lord, (she doesn't know she was only an instrument to be used),the brother became active in the Church serving God,and they continued with the fellowship. In her mind she thought the brother would probably propose to her for marriage! Unfortunately! His mind was not on her but a different sister, and he went ahead and proposed to her. Now!! Haha,Sister???She was asking what to do? According to her,the brother took advantage of her and ended up with a different Sister...... I told her sister am sorry for what you are going through, BUT!! Your priorities were wrong, the first priority is Christ!! Bringing him to the Kingdom was the best thing you did,but having an assumed relationship was the mistake. Serve God as God, don't serve him with strings attached,we have been called to seek the Kingdom of God first,and other things will be added to us.( Mathew 6:33.) If the brother will be lead to you,well and good!! Hallelujah 🤩,But if he looks another direction!! Hallelujah,your work is done, through bringing him in the Kingdom!! Brothers and sisters,if we set our priorities right,we will remain happy while serving God, but when our priorities are wrong,that's when the devil will crip in the Church with jealousy,envy, unhealthy competitions, hatred etc. This will grief the Holy Ghost, God looks at the heart far much more than actions. If today it happens that what was giving you zeal for the service is removed,will you still stand and serve him?? If your hopes are not met, will you still continue?? Let God help us !! God bless you 🙏🙋 Have a blessed, fruitful and joyous week ahead. I love you all😄😄❤️❤️❤️ SHALOM 🙋😄!!
Matthew 7:15 “Be on your guard against false prophets; they come to you looking like sheep on the outside, but on the inside they are really like wild wolves. Indeed we have seen this in our modern lives, many have fallen in their traps ( fake or false prophets) and have corrupted their faith in God and they have taken the wrong directions. Jesus in his nature of OMNISCIENCE, he had the foreknowledge of the soon to happen events in the world and so he put them on alert. Sadly this warning is more needed today than ever before! Jesus said in Matthew 24:11 & 24 that in the last days there would be more and more false prophets. Paul warned the elders of the church of Ephesus in Acts 20:28-31 to be on guard because after his departure “salvage wolves” would come among them not sparing the flock. A few years later the apostle Peter warns in 2 Peter 2:1-3, However,for a Child of God it's easy to over come them by doing the following; (1). Be filled with power of the Holy Ghost 🔥!! Everything done in a Christian life is done through the Holy Spirit, if you have to discern the different kinds of the spirits , it's only possible by the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus said; John 16:13 When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, he will lead you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own authority, but he will speak of what he hears, and will tell you of things to come. The trueth about who is who can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit of God,and if you don't have him,then every wind of religion can toss you side by side. (2). Study the word, understand it,and practice it until you become a walking Bible. -The word that will help you is not that which you heard on the pulpit,,rather it's the one written in your heart. The spoken word becomes effective when practiced . James 1:22-23 Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice. Whoever listens to the word but does not put it into practice is like a man who looks in a mirror and sees himself as he is. (3). Be Prayerful. Prayer is our place of fellowship with our father, this is the position where our souls are connected with God. It's in prayer that things are revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. You won't know the things of the Spirit by your own understanding,but by getting in the realm of the Spirit through prayers.as a way of communication with God, is indispensable to a Christian’s spiritual life. No matter whether everything is going smoothly for us or we are experiencing hardships, what we always need is to truly communicate with God through prayer, because only true prayers can be heard by God. So how can we achieve that? Read these verses, and you will find the way of practice.. Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. God bless you 🙏 Have joyous Weekend in the presence of God 🙏 Much love from me🙋🙋🤣🤣🤣 ❤️❤️❤️.
Romans 5:5-6 This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God's gift to us. For when we were still helpless, Christ died for the wicked at the time that God chose. The gracious gift of hope is secured on the unchangeable and unconditional love of God, which He poured into our hearts by His Spirit, when we first trusted Christ's finished work on Calvary. The love of God was poured out in great measure when we first believed, and it grows into an ever-deepening awareness of God's great love for us, which remains the same yesterday, today, and forever Amen. A worldly hope is founded on irrational thinking, empty vanity, a humanistic philosophy, and man's deceitfully-inspired prospects, resulting in disappointments, frustration, confusion, and shame. But Christian hope is founded on an altogether different principle, which is rooted in God's trustworthy goodness and the gracious promises of our Heavenly Father. Christian hope is centred on the never-failing Word of God and His many precious promises, which are all 'yes' and 'amen' in Christ Jesus our Lord. Christian hope does not fear, because it rests on the character of God. God is eternal, immutable, and faithful; thus, we can count on Him. No one can confound our future because of that. He is not fickle or changeable. Confidence originates in an understanding of God’s integrity in dealing with us. He never disappoints us in life’s issues Praise God!! Why can Christians be so confident about our ultimate destination? Paul's answer reveals the very emotion of God toward us. His love has been poured in our hearts. In other words, God will always, always keep His promises to us because He loves us. It is not just that God is powerfully able to do what He has promised. It is not just that God is good. It is because He cares about us, loves us, so deeply that each of us actually carries His love inside of us, through the Holy Spirit. That makes God's promises powerful indeed!!! Hallelujah 🙋!
1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be fooled. “Bad companions ruin good character.” Show me your friends and I will tell you the kind of a person you. Spirits attract each other. As Christians,we have been called into a life of Holiness ,our way of life should be a reflection of Christ, our character should not be questionable. We are the carrier of an image of Christ Jesus wherever we are. 1 Peter 1:14-16 Be obedient to God, and do not allow your lives to be shaped by those desires you had when you were still ignorant. Instead, be holy in all that you do, just as God who called you is holy. The scripture says, “Be holy because I am holy.” We are representatives of the Kingdom of heaven here on earth,the government of heaven is counting on us to speak well of it until the world desires to have a taste of it. We are ambassadors living in heavenly embassy on earth representing our heavenly government. 2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. As a Christian,you can't keep a worldly culture while claiming to represent the Kingdom of God, that's why you have to chose your friends very keenly being lead by the Holy Ghost. If you choose unwisely using your own understanding,you will fail and by the end of the day they may influence your character negatively, the above scripture maybe fulfilled with you and it's not right. By associating with worldly characters, slowly by slowly your behaviour takes another form ,the evil you knew before starts to take form in your life. What you refered as unholy becomes part of your daily routine,Why? because you allowed that which is unholy contaminate your holiness. You can't be an ambassador of your country and at the same time portraying a culture of your neighbouring country,it's not possible unless you are confused. God's Kingdom has its own constitution with 66 books which as a Christian must read frequently, understand and practice it. It's the only one that keeps one alive. James 1:22-24 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. God bless you. Good night 😴🌃
Isaiah 54:4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.. “Shame…disgrace…humiliation represent three synonyms verbs sharing the fundamental idea of disappointed hopes, the embarrassment of expecting. It's a situation that is not interesting in one's life. As it is to men when disappointed of what they have been hoping for and expecting; it should not be so with the church, With the Church it's not the same for there is hope, faith, and confidence; for there would be a performance of all that the Lord had spoken: Whatever is spoken of God is real and trueth and will surely come to pass. Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. God does not speak idol word,he doesn't say things that he doesn't fulfill, every word that has come to you from God either by prophecy, inspiration, visions, Rhema etc, has to be fulfilled. Numbers 23:19 God is not like men, who lie; He is not a human who changes his mind. Whatever he promises, he does; He speaks, and it is done. God has never given vain promises, he is a faithful father who thinks well of his children, his plans for us are excellent thoughts full of great future and hope. Jeremiah 29:11 I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for. It doesn't matter the amount of oppositions you are facing, the issue is not about oppositions,the issue is about the opposed, are you going to give in?? Are you going to bark off?? No!! remember the word of Jesus; Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. We don't play games with the devil, neither do we negotiate with him, he is not an issue any longer,he got his knock out at Calvary ,all dominion was taken away from him, it's seizing what belongs to you and match forward with Confidence. The greater in you is incharge!! Hallelujah 💪💪.. Amen. God bless you. Shalom 🙋❤️❤️

Psalms 107:13-15 Then in their trouble they called to the Lord, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of their gloom and darkness and broke their chains in pieces. They must thank the Lord for his constant love, for the wonderful things he did for them. This is a choice song for the redeemed of the Lord (Ps 107:2). Although it celebrates providential deliverances, and therefore may be sung by any man whose life has been preserved in time of danger; yet under cover of this, it mainly magnifies the Lord for spiritual blessings, of which temporal favours are but types arid shadows. The theme is thanksgiving, and the motives for it. Whatever others may think or say, the redeemed have overwhelming reasons for declaring the goodness of the Lord. I don't know how many times you go to God just to tell him thank you for what he has done, you know telling someone thank you is a sign of appreciation, acknowledgement,and a complimenting phrase that shows humility. Sadly, many Christians only appear before God when life fills their throats to overflowing that even words are difficult to let out. That's when you find brothers and sisters kneeling, crying with words shocking their throats calling on the God of Israel giving him promises what they will do when he delivers them. Let us be at all times thoroughly fervent in the praises to the Lord, both with our lips and with our lives, by thanksgiving and thanks living to JEHOVAH, for that is the name here used, he is not to be worshipped with groans and cries of asking, but with thanks, for he is good; and these thanks should be heartily rendered, for this is no common goodness: he is good by nature, and essence, and proven to be good in all the acts of his eternity. Compared with him there is none . When the Jesus healed the ten lepers in Luke 17:13-19 ,the scriptures demonstrate to us clearly how man is, very ungratefuland forgetful, among the ten,only one came back to Jesus to worship him ,Luke 17:16 He threw himself to the ground at Jesus' feet and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. But what happened to the rest??? Well, nothing is known about them, we only read about the one who came back,Jesus said,"your faith has made you whole". This makes me to wonder;🙄🤔 Were they healed? Because going with the words of Jesus,when this Man from Samaria came back to worship him, it's here Jesus said to him,"your faith has made you whole"! That means,he acted by faith the words of Jesus and believed him giving thanks to him and health was restored to him.. Our worship to God is by faith, giving thanks to him for what he has done and what he will do. Let's not slack in giving thanks to God at all times for this is a Sacrifice that brings sweet aroma on the throne of God. Amen. Have a blessed week ahead. Love you!!❤️🙋🙋
Isaiah 43:18-19 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah’s writings to the children of Israel came at a bleak period of their history. They are in captivity, they have lost everything they thought they would keep forever, and they were home sick for the land and the blessing God had promised them. The 1st step to embracing the new thing what God wants to do in your life is to I. CHANGE YOUR FOCUS -- QUIT LOOKING BEHIND START LOOKING HEAD v.18 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. If you are continually looking behind you cannot see where you are going. If you are ever going to move on to new things in Christ you must learn that ... A. You Cannot Depend Upon Past Victories To Sustain You. It's okay to thank God for your past victory,but you also need to know that the fight you are facing now is quite different from what you went through in the past. You need directions and new strategies from the Holy Spirit through his word. Spend ample time in the presence of God and in the midst of your meditation and communion with him he will instilll into your heart the right approach you need to take presentry. In Ephesians 6:11-16 . God gives us direction on how to go in the battlefield,and he ends up by saying"After you have done all that he has directed you, Stand! God is never complicated,he gives the counsel and waits for us to follow. Forget the former things; : The children of Israel had many victories in their past:but what they were facing was different, each enemies had their own style of fighting, For example; how they fought Jebusites was not the same as how they fought with Amarekites!! Each had their own experience. And in every battle,God gave them directives. Sometimes God required them to fight, while some other times,he asked them to take instruments of praise and praise him!! 2 Chronicles 20:21-23 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. Some others times he told Joshua,No!! I want you to go fight physically inorder to take Ai, Joshua fought the whole day until the sun had to stand still upto when the battle was won.!! Reaching in Jericho,he tells them !! Shhhhhhhh🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭 going round seven times,and the seventh one! Shout Vistory.....!!!!!!! Hallelujah 🙋🙋 Hallelujah 💪💪!! That is the kind of God we serve brothers and sisters,he is a strategists!! He understands the enemy better than we... Glory to his mighty Name 🙋! We are set for a glorious time in the name of Jesus!! God bless you... Have a joyful day!!! Shalom ❤️❤️.
Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. The above picture it's an image of the same bird in different seasons. We all know about an eagle 🦅, it's dwellings is in the sky,he lives on high mountains, rarely you get to see an eagle walking on the ground. It's one of the fearless bird that has the longest lifespan among its species. It can live upto 70years but inorder to attain this ,it has to make a difficult decision during its 40th birthday. During this period,it's long and strong talons that helps it to catch it's prey becomes weak ,it's long and sharp beak becomes bend, it's feathers becomes aged and heavy due to their thickness making it hard for it to fly. The eagle is left with two options, either to succumb to its condition or to go through a difficult process of renewal. The process takes 150 days (5months). It flys back in the nest on top of the mountain,knocks its beak against a rock until the old one is plucks out,(you can imagine the bleeding), Then the eagle will wait for the new beak to grow back after which it will pluck out its talons. When its talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers. And after this, the eagle takes its famous flight of rebirth and LIVES for 30 more!!!What a transformation!! If we must experience joy in our lives, we have to make up our minds to pluck out our old memories,our old faliars, negative altitudes and we take a new chapter of our lives. In order to take on a New Journey ahead, let go of your negative old limiting beliefs. Open up your mind and let yourself fly high like an eagle! When it rains, all birds occupy shelter. But the EAGLE avoids the rain by flying above the clouds… The problem is common to all but the attitude to solve it makes the difference! Don’t be afraid of change…accept it gracefully..!!! Don't agree to succumb like our second eagle 🦅 on our above photo, instead of flying high it's now walking on the ground, being rained on, discouraged, murmuring alone ,and almost lifeless. In its status,it can become a prey to a dog or a hyena. The same bird that flies above the clouds it's now walking like a man coming from the market tired and worn out. What a pity 😢??? When God looks at us,he sees his sons and daughters who have the capability of soaring above the life challenges and battles, people who do not succumb to their present situation,but people who have Spiritual sensers,when they sense the temperatures are mounting up, they will take a leave and ascend on the mountain of God,and there they will renew their strength in prayer and when they shall come down,ooh Hallelujah 🙋🙋😂!! They will be like brazing fire !! Wiping every flame of the enemy!! And rainstating and restoring every energy that was weakened by the devil!! Hallelujah... brethrens,we have been called into a life of victory and triumph, a life of overcoming obstacles of life,threshing down the hills and mountains, rolling up the rivers of life and commanding them to gives way for us to pass, we don't succumb nor surrender,we match through the walls,if the walls will not come down,we will pass through them! Why? Because we have ceased to function normally,we are functioning divinely!!! Glory Hallelujah 💪🙏🙋🙋😂😂😂!! Wuuuuuiii!!! Am not normal, am not a partaker of normal things,Noo!! Am divine, living divinely!! The Bible States clearly!!! Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. .A righteous man does not move with seasons, his steadfast joy stands immovable in all circumstances. The most important thing to such a man is not what is happening today ,but rather what solution he can offer tomorrow to avoid today's happenings. Situations and circumstances do not determine his state of emotions at any given time because he has made the Joy of the Lord to be his strength. . Irrespective of his present conditions he always finds a way of making himself happy. During his trials and life challenges, he remains immovable, unchangeable, unresponsive, insensitive to any of them. He remains like a tree 🎄 planted by the river side that never experiences drought during the dry season but brings Fourth the fruits in their season. It's roots are forever connected to the moisture thus keeping the tree health. It's the same with the righteous,their lives are forever moistured by the power of the Holy Ghost who makes them bare fruits in all seasons irrespective of the condition of Spiritual weather!! Hallelujah. God bless you 🙋🙋🙋 Have a day full of joy!!😅😅 Love you 💝💝❤️🕺💃🕺💃
Deuteronomy 1:6-8 “When we were at Mount Sinai, the Lord our God said to us, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and move on. Go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all the surrounding regions — to the Jordan Valley, to the hill country and the lowlands, to the southern region, and to the Mediterranean coast. Go to the land of Canaan and on beyond the Lebanon Mountains as far as the great River Euphrates. All of this is the land which I, the Lord, promised to give to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants. Go and occupy it.’ ” The name Deuteronomy comes from the Septuagint's Greek title for the book, to deuteronomion, meaning “second law” or “repeated law,” Writer is Moses himself, written to Israelites in the East of Jordan just before they entered the promised Land .They had camped at Horeb. God is repeting the law he had given to them on the mountain of Sinai(Exodus 34). After which he advises them not to settle there going round but to advance. God is telling them to pull down their tents and advance into the land he had kept for them. They had settled outside of what God had given them,they had made themselves comfortable outside God's promises. See they were just next to their possessing the land but instead they chose to wonder around it. And God comes and tells them to move!! not to settle in what is not meant for them. Many Christians today are in the same position,they are either camping outside their possessions or they have settled down and made themselves comfortable with less of God's blessings that are meant for them. You may be feeling settled and contented,but not until you get to the real point and the position that God is expecting you, you may not experience the myriad or the bounty of God's blessings. It's not the character of God to stagnate his Children,but he moves them from one level of glory to another, 2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. The fulfillment of your vision is in obedience to God,when he says it's time to move on you move!! You haven't acquired all that he has for you,you still have more to conquer . Don't agree to settle in less of what God has purposed for you!! Move forward, advance and brake the camps ! God is waiting for your obedience so that he can grant it you. The best thing is that he is not leaving you to advance alone,he has promised to be with you till the end of times, yours is to obey,and as you take the step of faith to obey,he walks you through for he has already gone ahead of you to straighten the way and to level all the mountains for you. Isaiah 45:2-3 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. Amen!!! Have a Fruitful week full of Joy!! 😂😂😂😂 Love you ❤️🙋
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people.”..HALLELUJAH!!! In the beginning of his ministry,Jesus entered the synagogue and upon taking the scroll,he opened the prophecy of prophet Isaiah... Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. He read what was prophesied and what he was come to do,not for himself but for God the father. No one is given an annointing to benefit or to profit himself but it's given for the Kingdom assignment . When an annointing of God is upon your life whether it's for preaching, Singing, teaching, or whatever ministry is given to an individual, it's paramount for one to understand that it's not personal!!! rather it's for Kingdom purposes. It's also important to know that this annoiting is from God, given for the purpose of divine assignment that requires great responsibility that demands direct connection with God. We read in the scriptures how God annoited Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost 🔥...and with power inorder for him to fulfill his purpose.. Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. To be annoited simply means that you are set apart, empowered or protected divinely by God for his purpose. 2Kings 9:6 , 2) Empowered......2Corinthians 1:21-22 2 Corinthians 1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 3) Protection...... 1 Chronicles 16:21-22 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. When the annoiting of God is upon an individual,it causes one to stand out from the rest, you may not have the best voice for singing, even you may not shake your voice 😅😅,(but it's good to work on them please 🙄 Ok?). But when the annoiting of God is upon you, ooh beloved of God!!! Miracles happen!!! Hallelujah 🙋.. Annoiting as a gospel musician differentiates you from a performer into a worshipper. It differentiats you from an Orator into a preacher of good news. I once listened to a true story given, where two people were called to sing the same song. The first one came sang very well and people were clapping and cheering loudly. The second one rose too sang the same song!! people could barely sit nor stand!! They were falling on the floor speaking in tongues and worshipping God. What was the difference?? THE ANNOITING!!. Freinds we need to take care of the annoiting uopn our lives if we must reach to the world. We need annoiting to open the blind eyes both physical and Spiritual, we need annoiting to mend the broken hearted!! The world is hearting, many are giving up because life is too hand to handle, according to them their world is dead, they need life ,they need hope,they need assurance,. We cannot do all that with ourselves,it's by the annoiting of God 🙏 Hallelujah 💪... through the power of the Holy Ghost!! The Yoke can only be broken down because of the annoiting ,( Isaiah 10: 27) remember, annointing is not annoyance,but it's the power of God that brings salvation to mankind. Many are bound by cultures, habits,strange believes and are in need of liberation,we cannot liberate them after eating too much but it will only be possible if we guard and take care of what has been entrusted to us by God and this is his annoiting. We cannot afford to live carelessly,canaly ,with a don't care attitude and expect to move under his annoiting. We have to make up our minds to remain under the shadow of the almighty. Remember, it's not by power nor by might,it's by my Spirit sayest the Lord.(Zechariah 4:6) Within these remaining months of the year, great things can be accomplished through the Church of Jesus Christ. We are well able,for greater one who is the head of the Church lives inside of us. Amen!! God bless you 🙏🙋 Have a blessed weekend!! Shalom, Shalom. I love you...❤️❤️💖 🚶🚶🚶🚶🏃🏃.
John 19:34,36 One of the soldiers, however, plunged his spear into Jesus' side, and at once blood and water poured out. This was done to make the scripture come true: “Not one of his bones will be broken.” The most favourite message that causes my heart change its rythm is the message of the Cross, because for me it's the climax of the life of my Lord on earth. I don't know about you,but for me it's the most exciting and yet touching message that one would give to the world. This is the message that demonstrates to us how all chaos of the world were calmed down by our Lord Jesus. Prior to this, the world had no answer to it's predicaments, death was not evitable, sickness and diseases crippled the Universe, Man lived as he wished, Devil 😈 ruled the earth 🌍 freely moving from corner to corner of the world without limitations for he was the prince 🤴 of the then world. However,some two thousand and plus years ago,that music was stopped when Jesus agreed to leave his royal Kingdom with a mission of rain stating the order in the earth as God the father had placed them before. The whole process of his conception and his human growth are all recorded in the scriptures upto his start of ministry and ascension. At the latter of his ministry, this is where the rubber met the road, the painful journey to Golgotha( the place of skull 💀)and the difficult process of his vicarious death. Let me state this first ; people should know that devil doesn't know your future unless you disclose it to him, if he knew that by the death of Jesus he would loss all his power and authority to him, he wouldn't have touched him either☝️☝️☝️, only God is OMNISCIENT God!! He knew all about your life long before you saw the Sun . He predestined the paths of your life and placed them before you to follow them. The most remarkable thing that stood out about my Lord is that his death didn't require assistance 😅😅 because it was imparative!! While the other two gentlemen were assisted to die by braking their legs, it was not so to Jesus because he never resisted death rather he voluntarily embraced the it. He couldn't wait for them to brake his bones because it was already prophesied in the old testament that none of his bones will be broken!! Hallelujah!. Numbers 9:12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it. Hallelujah to the lamb of!!! 💪💪🙋🙋 Psalms 34:20 the Lord preserves them completely; not one of their bones is broken The decision of the one of the soldier to pierce Jesus on his side was outstanding!! Because as the Bible records that blood and water oozed out !! And what was the significance of the two elements??🤔🤔🙄🙄 (1). Blood---- It was for our remission of Sins!! Our sins were washed, erased, deleted, dropped and we were justified as though we had not sinned . Praise the Lord 😅💃🕺💃, we walked free ,our charges were dropped,no one can judge us anymore ,the blood of Jesus touched the ground. Everything was rainstated ,the soil was blessed!! Hallelujah 💪💪!! What manner of love it was!!! (2)Water....... This was the symbol of healing!! As our sins were washed away, so were our bodies cleansed from all leprous conditions, it doesn't matter how it presents itself, whether is Covid19, cancer, fibrosis, malaria, menengitise, typhoid,skin conditions and it's characteristics,all those types, through the water oozing out of him, our health was restored!! Amen!! We can live free from all infirmities and it's characteristics because Jesus healed us. Praise God 🙏!! We received two gifts buttoned up together at Golgotha; Remission of sins and good health, and that's how God expects us to live , free from sins and free from infirmities.... Amen! 3 John 1:2 My dear friend, I pray that everything may go well with you and that you may be in good health — as I know you are well in spirit. God bless you Shalom 💖🙋!!
Luke 8:43-44 Among them was a woman who had suffered from severe bleeding for twelve years; she had spent all she had on doctors, but no one had been able to cure her. She came up in the crowd behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and her bleeding stopped at once. Praise the Name of Jesus 🙏!!! Happy Sunday to all!!! . Nobody encountered Jesus remained the same, everywhere Jesus went he went doing good. Acts 10:38, even you today who have encountered him,I know he has done good to you too. The scripture we have read above it's a chapter I can call a chapter of Miracles and Christ affirmation. 1. In verses 19,20,and 21, we see the sisters,brothers also their mother coming to look for him and sending for him from outside. But Jesus knowing the times that he was in,he never bothered to respond to them, rather he sent a message to them which I don't think they understood what he meant! To them he was their elder biological brother and thus they had a right to see him!,they didn't know who he was, But to Jesus his times to be with them was overtaken by his ministry,and so those whom he referred as his family were those who were doing what he was teaching. His time to fulfill the reason for his incarnation had arrived, he affirmed to them his agenda on earth 🌍. As a confirmation of his statement,he took his desciples in the boat and asked them to close to the side of the sea of Galilee. In the middle of the journey,the sea rampaged as Jesus was taking a nap and desciples were greatly troubled !!🤔🙄They run to Jesus who calmed the sea. On reaching the dry ground,he was met by a demon possessed man,who had several demons that called themselves region coz they were many,(I don't why I was thinking could be they were the ones causing trouble in the sea as they tried to resist Jesus arrival 🙄🤔☝️). However,they were driven out with authority and the man went free.!! Hallelujah 💪💪 This is where my attention was.; When Jesus returned from this mission, he found great multitude awaiting for him. Among them the leader of the synagogue called Jairus who had a twelve years old girl who was sick! He begged the Master to hasten to his home to heal his daughter, but on his way, he encountered a woman who was suffering haemorrhage for twelve years too!! The Bible says that she had exhausted all her resources seeking the relief of her predicament but to no avail. The only thing remained in her was her Faith!! This faith divated the route of Jesus and caused him to pass where she could reach him!! Ooh Hallelujah 🙏!! Your faith can cause a lot of changes even where you are not aware, it can cause governments of the earth to redirect their policies,!! Can cause where they were expecting death,life starts to be celebrated,why? Because Jesus does not conduct burial services but resurrection services because he is the ressurrection!!.🕺💃🕺💃 Hallelujah!! We serve a mighty God!! The woman spoke to herself and said(am trying to imagine how people avoided her🤔) "if only I touch the hem of his garment,I shall be made whole", immediately she did it,the haemorrhage stopped instantly!!! Hallelujah 🙋🙋!! When we encounter Jesus at our personal level, our worries stops instantly,the sickness stops instantly , provisions starts instantly,joy unspeakable starts instantly, Why? Because Jesus does not say come tomorrow,Jesus says NOW!!! AMEN!!Jesus performs miracle now!! Your answe is now!! Hallelujah 💪💪 How I pray brothers and sisters,that if we can trust our Lord Jesus this way, nothing,I mean nothing will stop us in this life!! Jesus proceeded to Jairus home, because he was not short of power,the fact that he healed the woman, he didn't need to go for recharge again,NO!! He was full of power as he is even today, Glory Hallelujah!! As he was speaking with the healed woman,the bad report came from Jairus home, what? The girl is dead. Jesus said no she can't die when the master is already aware of her situation,she is just sleeping she will wake up!! How many times have you believed the bad report from the enemy even after you have prayed about it?? No believe not the bad report, believe the report of the Lord.. Isaiah 53:1. As long as the Lord is aware of your issue, nothing will go wrong, northing will be aborted or miscarry, everything will go as previewed...Amen!! After his arrival,Jesus commanded every one out,and he went in took the girl by her hand and said"Taritha kumi!! Meaning"rise up!! And the girl rose and Jesus handed her to her parents. Whatever is troubling you tonight, don't worry about it,it will go as Jesus had promised,Jesus is saying" "Taritha Kumi"!! Raise up!!" And he is handling it to you. -Your health -Your dying businesses -Your relationships -Your job -Bank account Hallelujah!!hallelujah!! hallelujah!!🙋🙋🙏🙋 God bless you 👏👏 Have a blessed week full of FAITH!! TARITHA KUMI!! RAISE UP!!!
Titus 2:3-5 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. One thing I love with Apostle Paul is that he dealt with all round issues that were affecting the Church, Spiritual, Morality, characters and the like. The best way to resist wrong teaching is to give positive instruction in Christian doctrine and its moral application. This will produce spiritual growth and right behaviour in all groups alike, regardless of age or social background. Older men, for instance, should set an example of a well balanced Christian life (2:1-2). Older women also should be a good example. If their lives are free of such bad habits as gossip and social climbing, the younger women are more likely to benefit from their advice and learn how to carry out their responsibilities in the home (3-5). Titus is commanded to teach each of these groups with authority. Paul includes directions tailored for older men, older women, younger men, and younger women. This part of the chapter emphasizes characteristics such as self-control, faithfulness, dignity, respect, godliness, and love. Older men and women are to mentor younger men and women, respectively. Paul also gives directions to servants, regarding submission to their masters. Titus is given instruction, as well, for the correct conduct of a leader. A major reason for right behavior is to leave critics no room to attack the Christian faith. This meant that the older Women had to be of good reputation,and modest inorder to affect the younger generation. They had to be sober and moderate ,when we talk of being modest it doesn't mean worldly,there is a moderation of how things are done in the life of Christian Woman!!!🙆🙆😅😅😅 Let everything that is supposed to be inside remain inside!! don't expose them!!🤦🤦🤦 Gold is not found on the surface,you have to dig deep to find it!!😂😂😂,(ask the miners)if you will ever collect gold on the surface,that is fake gold,it's never exposed to everyone.....☝️☝️🏃🏃 2.) The other area is in loving their husbands and Children, Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. You can't love without submitting and you can submit without loving, When we say that we love God,it's another way of saying that we have submitted to his authority. All that he asks us to do we respond without argument because we are under his authority. Him being the head of the Church,he has given responsibility to the immediate human authority who happens to be your husband!! He expects you as a wife to submit under this authority without questioning just the same thing you do to God. Where there is harmony,love for Children will not be a great deal. When a woman is moderate in her life,there is joy to her, family and the outside world. When each person stands where God placed them right from the beginning, Man remain in your position as the head,Woman remain the best helpmate to your husband then Children will have no hindrance to take after the parents. Amen God bless you.
