“LABOURING IN VAIN WITH CONSTANT FEAR AND RESENTMENT & LYING TO ONESELF” 8-11-17

“(1 Corinthians 15:57-58 AMP), “But thanks be to God who gives us the victory (as conquerors) through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work  of the Lord (always doing your best and doing more than needed), being continually aware that your labour (even to the point of exhaustion) in the Lord is not futile nor wasted (it is never without purpose.”

*“God forgive all my sins for the sake of Jesus.   I have sinned in labouring in vain with constant fear and resentment, and lying to myself for the positioning of myself in areas which you did not provide for me, where I laboured for my own gain, my own popularity in appeasing others, in lying to myself that all was fine and good for me.  I have succeeded to remove your plans for me Lord Jesus, in replacing them with my ambitiousness and planning what I believed would be to my success in all the avenues for my life’s pursuit to be successful in the fields I worked in, and building my house on vanity and pride, whereby it was a constant battle with fear and resentment to remain afloat.  I have gone astray from your ways Lord Jesus, and found myself indebted to many people for what they could provide for me to gain access into my life to suck me dry of all empowerment in making right and honourable choices which would last in the prosperity gain I expected, being fully incapacitated to their whims of appeasement in a life of demise and pitiful returns.
 
I am deeply sorry Jesus for my futile attempts without you in my life, to be the person and live the life I thought would make me happy, but I lied to myself, for everyday was a battle that I lost with trying to keep up the charade of prosperity in my life, when the reality was that through my lifestyle of labouring in vain with constant fear and resentment and lying to myself, I was never happy for what I did, or had, because it was not from you Jesus.  I have successfully manipulated others into giving me what I thought would make me happy, but alas it was a constant battle to appease those who submitted to my will in placing my agendas for life as my priority.
 
Lord Jesus I now stand before you in repentance and the full understanding of my erring in your sight, and I place all of my faults and sins through the lifestyle I believed would make me happy, living and labouring with constant fear and resentment and lying to myself, was all in vain, and I cast it all onto you Lord Jesus, that I might be cleansed of it all once and for all time, for good, with the washing of your precious blood Jesus, that I might receive in its place your plans for my good always, in subjecting myself and my life into your hands, as the Scripture declares in (Jeremiah 29:11 GNT) “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.”  This I trust will happen now through you Jesus, Lord and Saviour of my life, and may the Holy Spirit fill me up with your abundance of grace to, “be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord,” for I am now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, and my life belongs to Jesus now and forever, Amen!  I now draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!  For God is and God will provide!  Amen!”

“SELF-JUSTIFICATION IS AN ABOMINATION IN GOD’S SIGHT” 5-11-17

“We are told by Jesus the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector in (Luke 18:14 GNT), how it is easy to justify oneself without recognizing it.  “Jesus also told this parable to people who were sure of their own goodness and despised everybody else. “Once there were two men who went up to the Temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, the other a tax collector.  The Pharisee stood apart by himself and prayed, ‘I thank you, God, that I am not greedy, dishonest, or an adulterer, like everybody else.  I thank you that I am not like that tax collector over there.  I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of all my income.  But the tax collector stood some distance away and would not even raise his face to heaven but beat on his breast and said, God, have pity on me, a sinner!’  I tell you,” said Jesus, “the tax collector, and not the Pharisee, was in the right with God when he went home.  For those who make themselves great will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be made great.”

What a powerful testimony of his faith we read about the tax collector.  Jesus gave this parable to give us insight of His power over all, and not man’s power over all, for God is all -knowing, omnipotent and omniscient, where He knows us and our true nature before we utter one word in our defence.  Just like the original sin committed in the Garden of Eden, in (Genesis 3:12-13 GNT), the role of self-justification came into play from Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God’s command, not to eat from the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad, in (Genesis 2:16-17), “You may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad.  You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day.”  This dying God informs us about, is called sin, for before they committed the sin of disobedience, Adam and Eve were in harmony with God their creator, but once the disobedience came into their lives, it altered them from the good they had known, into the bad traits of self-justification mode as a self-defence mechanism.  This is the origin of self-justification we first read about in God’s Word the Bible, and it is a clear indication how God is certainly not pleased with our self-defence mechanisms when we pray to Him for forgiveness of any sins we may have encountered in our daily journey of life, for God is a compassionate and loving Father, who sent His own beloved Son Jesus to pay for all our sins firsthand, and we don’t need to justify ourselves whatsoever, but just repent of all our sins with a grateful heart of the availability of Jesus’ blood shed at Calvary, which can wash away all our sins when we pray with a penitent heart just like the tax collector who praised God with his simple prayer of acknowledgement of his wrong doing and humbling himself before the Supreme God of the universe.  Jesus is our only defence, and He alone can forgive our sins, so let’s be humble like that tax collector who heartily acknowledged he was a sinner, and prayed for God’s forgiveness:
*”Lord Jesus we thank you for the parables you have given us in your Word the Bible, that we might display all your qualities of good in our lives, and that when we sin you are there always ready to forgive us and restore the good back to us.
Lord Jesus we have no need for self-justification or self-defence on our own part, for you conquered sin and death on the cross at Calvary with the shedding of your blood for all our sins once and for all, and on the third day you rose from the dead, and you are now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven interceding on our behalf when we repent you are our defence and our righteousness.  Lord Jesus, we now lay at your feet in repentance, all of our sins of self-justification and self-defence, which have furthered our sins to pride, for which we are truly sorry. 
 
Help us by your grace Lord Jesus to remember that you are Sovereign, and all we need to do is truly repent with a penitent heart for all our sins, and you will forgive us.
 
Help us Jesus to be free once and for all from the sins of pride through self-justification and self-defence, by washing us clean now with your precious blood Jesus, and cleanse us of all unrighteousness to now be right standing with you, by your grace through the Holy Spirit to enter us now with the confidence in you alone Jesus, for the joy of the Lord is our strength and our salvation daily to continue in our life’s journey with the hope of good and not bad.
 
In Jesus’ name we pray Father God to you in thanksgiving for what Jesus did on the cross at Calvary for us, with the truth of your Word, that “God is and God will provide,” and we thank you now to draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!”

“WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM LIFE IN GOD’S SERVICE OF OUR FAITHFULNESS?” 4-11-17

"The Bible tells us clearly how God would have us exercise our faithfulness and to trust Him to be with us through any such hardships, even when nothing seems to be going the way we thought it would, we need to be confident it will happen as we know God has told us.
“The sower and the soils” is the parable Jesus told of the various types of stages people can miss out on their salvation, which is written in (Matthew 13; Mark 4 ; Luke 8), “A farmer set off to sow some seed on his land.  He threw it in huge sweeps, and as he did so, some fell onto the well-trodden path on which he was walking.  Almost as soon as the seed bounced on the hard ground, hungry birds swooped down and ate it.
Other seed fell on rocky patches with just a thin covering of soil.  The plants grew quickly at first, but soon shrivelled up, because their short roots could not find enough water to protect them from the scorching sun.
Some seeds landed among thorns that choked the young plants.
Others however, fell on rich soil and gave rise to thirty, sixty or a hundred times the crop.”
“Jesus concluded, “Whoever hears my words, let them hear with understanding.”
“Master,” His disciples then asked Him, “what does this parable mean?”
“Jesus replied, “The seed that was sown along the path is like a person who listens to the message of the Kingdom of God, but does not understand it.  The devil comes and plucks away what has been sown in that person’s heart.
The seed that landed on the rocky soil is like someone who gladly listens to the message and is full of joy.  But without any roots it is impossible to last.  As soon as any form of difficulty or trouble comes, all enthusiasm is lost and the person falls away.
The seed that fell among the thorns is like the person who hears the Word, but is suffocated by the worries and concerns of this life and is unable to produce any fruit.
Lastly, the seed that fell on productive soil is like the person who hears and understands the message.  That person then produces a crop thirty, sixty or a hundred times what was originally sown.”
This account Jesus’ gives, is to awaken our understanding that, it is by faith alone that we are saved, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, nor of works, lest anyone should boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV).  This then is how we should live in faith at all times, even when nothing is going the way we thought things would be for us now, we must keep our faith fully immersed in Jesus, and not our circumstances, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16), and that’s where our faith lies alone, and never on our standards due to the circumstances which may arise to entrap us to give up our faith and our salvation here now, and through to eternity with Jesus who is our faith in all things made possible to us when nothing seems to be working out as we believed would happen.”

“THE MOST BEAUTIFUL NAME IN THE WORLD IS JESUS!” 2-10-17

“(Hebrews 12:2 NKJV) “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  What this all means is this: Jesus took upon Himself all the shame and despise that we have carried through misadventures of ours, that we did not know any better, and where sin invaded our camps undetected.  Jesus was disliked by those in authority who despised and shamed Him in front of the multitude of Jews who at first followed Jesus, wanting to be close by Him and to receive the benefits He could give them, but denied Him when they found out He was not going to rebel against the authority of the Romans in their town of Jerusalem.  People may follow Jesus for a short time when things are good, but when things don’t turn out as they would have thought, they retreat back to their old ways.

We must never turn back to our old ways of living, but, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God,” we too can be sitting in wait for Jesus to complete all His promises to us with joy.  We can endure as Jesus endured the cross – which is a symbol of suffering, because He is the finisher of our faith when the completion is set before us of the long awaited miracle before our very eyes.  Jesus is the only way, truth, and life we need to live by, and all else is meaningless without His authority in our lives, for God is and God will provide, when least we expect it, and in the form we could never imagine possible, but He is the Creator of all things, and can do all things for our advantage, and what God gives, God gives for keeps, and where God guides He does provide for, and what God provides, He cares for.  So let’s affirm with faith solely on Jesus to do His part, and we do our part in our life to remain joyful until the end of the matter, by affirming out loud – “I am looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God, as I have with Him in all that I do and say to be mindful that Jesus is my Lord and my Saviour, Amen!”

“WHAT CAN WE DO TO BECOME MORE AFFECTIVE IN OUR LIVES TO RECEIVE GOD’S BEST FOR US”


“The Bible refers to many ways we can inherit God’s blessings, even the most minute of ways serving Him as described in (Matthew 10:42 NKJV) “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is My disciple, truly I tell you, he will never lose his rewards.”
Many times when we have done exactly what the Scripture tells us to do, and we’ve not seen any rewards forthcoming, it does not mean that God has forgotten us, but rather that He is going to be forthcoming with our rewards for diligently serving Him at the right season when the reward will matter to our lives most.  In general, we can be sure that God notices everything we do for Him as His followers, just as the disciples did, with a fervent heart towards God, and not our rewards for doing so.
People who do good things because of the need for them, do it out of an unselfish ambition to please God, serving Him in their life fulfilling the needs of family and their job responsibilities with integrity always to serve because that is just simply what is a necessary part of our lives, to serve, and be served by blessing others.  To serve God is a blessing in itself, for when we can serve Him in serving others and fulfilling their needs (even if it is offering someone a cup of water) then we do it to Him, and He acknowledges us in that when we need something (even a cup of cold water offered to us) we can remember that what we have sown we also reap back as a blessing.
Many times alas, people have deserted us after taking advantage of our goodwill and kindness to them, but God has not forgotten those times because we did it to Him as is written in (Matthew 10:42).  So let’s not blame God for the times we did good and were repaid evil from those we helped and served.  God is love, and therefore love covers a multitude of sins (Proverbs 10:12 NKJV) “Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.”  This means that we are not to hate anyone for not acknowledging our kindness and generosity to them, but rather forgive them for anything they took advantage of us, and let God deal with them, and may His love fill us up to the brim overflowing with joys immeasurable, that we could, and still can love in His name.
This is a short prayer to bring about His comfort to our “waiting on Him” times to bring about His rewards to us, when others have deserted us:
*”Lord Jesus, I know that you are omnipresent in my life, and I know that Your Word is truth to me.  Help me Jesus to remember that always in those times when I have felt abandoned and rejected for doing your will in my life as is mentioned in (Matthew 10:42) when I have given freely and not received in return anything from those who have used my kindness and generosity for their gain alone, Lord I believe I did them unto you, because the need was required to be filled.  I am truly sorry Jesus for harbouring bad thoughts about those who have deserted me in my time of need, but that’s when I have seen your love and kindness fulfil my every need.  Lord Jesus I love you, and I will serve you in doing good as is needed because that’s what you would do and have done for me.  Help me by your grace Lord Jesus to forgive all who have abandoned me in my time of need, wash and cleanse me of all unrighteousness with your blood shed at Calvary for my sins, and may the Holy Spirit indwell me with the gifts of compassion and understanding  to forgive and forget all my sins and those who have wronged me, because love covers all sins, and I will not keep an account open for them any longer, but I now close off all accounts of my past sins and others’ towards me, with the precious blood of Jesus drawn over the whole lots, Amen, so be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide, Amen!”                                                                                                                  3-9-17

“GOD IS AND GOD WILL PROVIDE!” 10-8-17


“It is written in (Matthew 7:7 GNT) “Ask, and you will receive, seek, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  This is the fundamental basis of our faith in God, for even Jesus, during His ministry on earth during the last three years of His life on earth, applied this principle, for His faith was always in His Father’s provision for Him.  Likewise Jesus taught the disciples and His followers to pray to the Father, He taught them that, “Your Father already knows what you need before you ask Him.  This then is how you should pray;
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever. Amen!" (Matthew 6:8-13 NKJV).
This universal prayer suffices all our needs in life’s most tragic of circumstances, to the joys of the long awaited breakthrough in seeing the fruition of all our awaited prayers before us visible in our lives.  Faith, is believing before we see it, so imagine that which we asked is in God’s hands, and it’s only when God has completed the work to finalizing that event we are waiting for, that He hands it over to us to enjoy.  Nothing is ever half finished by God, for what God gives God gives for keeps, meaning that He has given us what we have so desired in prayer finished and completed to do His will in the given answer to us.  My aim here is to tell you – don’t give up when nothing seems to be happing in the reality while you are waiting – rather believe that each day brings us closer to the prayer request being finalised by God, who will then give us the full and completed work He has done for us.

The Lord’s Prayer above, is sufficient for those times when we are lagging in faith, and it will strengthen us for the long run in all our prayer requests’ fruition.  I affirm this daily, and it soothes me in knowing God is and God will Provide!”

“OUR DEVOTION TO GOD REQUIRES SACRIFICES” 16-7-17


 “Sacrifices = are anything given up for the sake of others”
(Romans 14:8 NKJV) “For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord.  Therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.”
(Deuteronomy 6:5 NKJV) “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your might.”
(1 Peter 4:1-2 NKJV) “Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.”
(2 Corinthians 5:15 NKJV) “And He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
“This is the life we are called to live by, to dedicate our lives to Christ Jesus who is the beginning and the end of all our endurance to be the person He created us to be willing to cast all our problems, worries and concerns onto Him, and then He enables us to do the sacrifices which will benefit others firstly, then ourselves, to glorify Him in all our doings and sufferings against doing what our flesh desires, to resist the devil by fleshly words of opposition, into the will of God to “let go of the situation at hand which is causing strife and anger, and unrest, and let God!”
Cast your cares on the Lord, and He will manage all of life’s difficulties for you in a way you could never know or imagine possible, for an outcome for your good and the good of others, by stepping back and sacrificing what we want for what God knows best.  This is hard when faced with ridicule or misbehaviour on the part of others, but if we stand back and “let go of it all and let God” miracles happen when we are silent and allow God!
I know too well this life, and I can vouch that “GOD IS AND GOD WILL PROVIDE” for so many circumstances which were beyond any human reasoning of a way out.  But God knows all things before they happen, and He never allows more to come upon us than what we can handle, so with that confidence, I can believe and trust in Him in all the occasions when I need to sacrifice my words to Him in being silent and not speak negative words which could inflame the situation, but give Him the honour and the glory in trusting Him to defeat the enemy’s attacks, and he will flee from the situation at hand.
Love is unconditional, and we give without wanting anything back but to be loved as well.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16), this is what true love is and requires our love back to God as He has requested in (Deuteronomy 6:5) “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
Here is a prayer to enable your confidence to be sound and based on God’s Word, that “God is and God will provide” as Abraham placed his trust in God (Genesis 22:1-14):
*”Lord Jesus, I thank you for the sacrifice you paid for my sins on the cross at Calvary.  I look to you for my strength in the times when I am in a position of not knowing what to do, to remember to cast all of my problems onto you, and not to dwell on them by speaking out negative words of fear and doubt, but to leave and let go of all problems to you, who will bring the outcome to a peaceful and satisfying conclusion.  I am sorry for all the times I have not done this, and took the matter into my hands, which was stressful and hard.  But I have learnt through those past events, that only you Jesus are my resolve to any solutions still outstanding, and I thank you Lord to strengthen me to remain sincere and to sacrifice my silence for your glory and not mine in the awaited event’s finality for the common good in my life and the life of others.  I thank you Lord for giving me your gift of peace which surpasses all understanding, at and during confrontations, to speak only positive words of truth to uphold my faith always in you, to let go of it all, and let God on it all!  Amen!
I am truly sorry for all the times of my doubting you would do what you have said you would do for me, and taken matters into my own hands.  Please wash me with the precious blood you Jesus, shed for me on the cross at Calvary, and renew in me a right spirit through the Holy Spirit’s entering me as (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) declares, “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.  For you were bought at a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”  Thank you Jesus for your love and mercies to me, which are  new every morning, and I devote my life to serving you with the sacrifices I face in my daily living by offering them up to you, for God is and God will provide!  Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it!  And I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots.  Amen!”

“THE EVIDENCE OF A DEMONIC ENTITY IN SOMEONE’S PERSONALITY- IS THE GLEE IN THEIR EYE, ESPECIALLY FROM ONE’S OWN GOOD FORTUNE OR ANOTHER’S MISFORTUNE” 3-6-17


“Listen to what God has to say on this matter in (Proverbs 24:17-18 GNT) “Don’t be glad when your enemies meet disaster, and don’t rejoice when they stumble.  The Lord will know if you are gloating, and He will not like it and then perhaps He might not punish them.”  We must pursue after peace in our lives, but if someone is of the kind that finds joy in hurting people and undermining their individuality to be all they can be for their good and the welfare of others, by their taunts and wishing others to fail, will reveal a demonic entity is present. What we should all remember is that God is and God will provide for us to recognize the glee in the eye of the possessed person is just that – possessed by an inferior spirit to God’s workmanship in that person, as the Scripture declares in (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV) “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”  This details the way in which we are meant to be which, is the opposite of the entity’s purpose for their host.
There are various names of spirits, but Jesus did not address them rather He told them to leave.  We can also with the power and authority Jesus’ name gives us as His believers, to cast out demons with the power given to us through His death on the cross at Calvary and His resurrection power from the dead has set us free from the bondages of sin and death.  He tells His disciples in (Matthew 10:8 GNT) “Heal the sick, bring the dead back to life, heal those who suffer from dreaded diseases, and drive out demons.”  Therefore as He instructed, let us do as He instructed.  If we know of an acquaintance being possessed by a demonic entity and they do not know it, we can do as Jesus said in being obedient and praying for the release of the acquaintance like this:
*”Lord Jesus you are the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, I now come before you with thanksgiving and praise for what you have done on the cross at Calvary by shedding your blood for us once and for all for the remission of our sins which have separated us from you.
I ask you now Lord Jesus to send the Holy Spirit to guide me now in what I need to say over this matter of demonic oppression and possession of (name of acquaintance).  In the name of Jesus I now command every demonic entity ruling within (name of acquaintance) to now be bound up and loosed from within (name of acquaintance) to leave them now with the authority Jesus has over the power of darkness and death, never to return to (name of acquaintance) ever again, for I now claim that the shed blood of Jesus at Calvary has set (name of acquaintance) free from the powers of sin and death’s hold on their lives.  I now ask you Jesus to wash and cleanse (name of acquaintance) heart, and soul, and body, mind, will and emotions with the washing of your blood over those areas which have now been vacated, bringing clarity back where confusion and difficulty once reigned, now only your workmanship, to be created by you Jesus within them, which God prepared beforehand for them to walk in, that they might now be filled with the Holy Spirit’s grace to be all that you created them to be, and that they can honour you in their life, by receiving the discernment of the change which has occurred in them of the freedom you have given them.
I thank you Lord Jesus for setting (name of acquaintance), to be free to serve you fully in the good works becoming who they are now evident to all who see them noticeably changed for the better.  Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus, for God is and God will provide, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots!
“I now draw the bloodline of Jesus over all my responsibilities for (name of acquaintance) and I cast them all onto you Lord Jesus, and I thank you Lord Jesus for the perfection of your Kingdom is now within me and (name of acquaintance) Amen!”

"OUR FUTURE HOPE OF THE LORD JESUS IN OUR LIVES & FOR ALL ETERNITY” 27-4-17


“It is written in (Acts 2:21 ESV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  (Matthew 7:21 ESV) “Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord, will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.”  (Romans 2:13 ESV)  “For it is not the hearers of the Law who are righteous before God, but it is the doers of the Law, who will be declared righteous.”  What does all this mean?
Jesus taught in (Matthew 5:17 GNT) “Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets.  I have not come to do away with them, but to make their teachings come true.  Remember that as long as heaven and earth last, not the least point nor the smallest detail of the Law, will be done away with—not until the end of all things.  So then, whoever disobeys even the least important of the Commandments and teaches others to do the same, will be least in the Kingdom of heaven.  On the other hand whoever obeys the Law and teaches others to do the same, will be great in the Kingdom of heaven.”  The Kingdom of heaven is God’s rule and reign in our lives, to humbly acknowledge that Jesus is our instructor and to follow the will of God through His teachings of the Father’s will as He did, not to be better than others, but because it was right to do so, honouring the Father’s will in all He did for the good of men, woman, and children, for whom He was able to set free through His healing them of various problems which afflicted them, and who came seeking His healing as the Son of God, for none were turned away, but healed because of their faith in Jesus, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16), for when we call Lord, Lord, God sees our heart and genuine faith in Him through His Son Jesus who is the author of our faith, and our genuine faith in Him and not just empty words to get for ourselves the salvation only Jesus gives to those who are faithful and true in their lifestyle practices keeping the Law of Moses, the Ten Commandments and teaching others to do the same.  Likewise we are to live quiet and humble lives bringing forth good fruit of righteousness and truth, that we may exhibit Christ like obedience to the Father in Jesus’ name, Amen!”

“THE MIRACULOUS LIFE!” 26-3-17

“According to Scripture, Jesus announced in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:6 NKJV), that “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”  What is righteousness we may ask?  The dictionary explains it to be: uprightness; integrity; honesty; trustworthy.  These are all qualities of honour that Jesus upheld in His daily walk when He lived among His creation over 2,000 years ago.  His life displayed the epitome of the miraculous life we should follow, as we strive for the life He has purposed for us to walk in His ways, and to adapt our lives to honour and obey Him by keeping ourselves pure and true to Him alone, by obeying the Ten Commandments which epitomise His standards, then watch the miracles each day in your life to come to fruition constantly as we follow in His footsteps the impossible becomes possible.

I have seen much in my life, and it never ceases to amaze me how God is never late, but always on time and when we least expect it, my prayer requests are answered, and before me for all to see.
Don’t give up!  For God is faithful and just and does not forget us, He is always at work to make that impossibility happen.  I fervently implore you to never give in to the world’s standards which are “now” orientated, and if it isn’t now, then all hope is lost for it to become possible to receive what you have been waiting for.

Let’s look at Jesus’ life – He was born of the virgin Mary, became man, and at the age of thirty He began His ministry which culminated at the cross, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).  
This is the evidence we all need to see how even Jesus had to wait in hope for the time God the Father initiated for the miracles to flow out to Him and through Him to teach, heal, and forgive the sins of those who approached Him in faith, and raising the dead to life anew.  This shows us that God is and God will provide, and He is never late, but perfectly in time.

Jesus obeyed the Father to the end of His life on the cross at Calvary, when He said those miraculous words over you and me, “Forgive them Father!  They don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 GNT).  This signifies Jesus’ miracle of forgiveness for all our sins when we ask and repent, for it is through repentance that our faith is upheld to all the promises of God that we will have what we ask for in the name of Jesus our requests will always be answered in His time, which is always the right time, and when it happens miracles take place, that just like Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, we too can rise up and take hold of the life free from all expectations lost but to rejoice in the finished work of Christ at the cross at Calvary, “for it is He who is the “Yes” to all of God’s promises.” (2 Corinthians 1:20 GNT), you can be sure of that!

Here is a short prayer for whatever your petition of prayer, be -

*”Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying on the cross at Calvary to forgive my sins.  I now lay at the foot of your cross any sins which could be hindering the resolution and completion for my prayer requests to be possible.  Jesus I now draw your bloodline over them all, and I give you thanks and rejoice in seeing your possibilities to all the impossibilities in my life, for God is and God will provide!  Amen!”
