Psalm 127 - In Praise of God's Goodness

1. If the LORD does not build the house,
the work of the builders is useless;
if the LORD does not protect the city,
it does no good for the sentries to stand guard.
2. It is useless to work so hard for a living,
getting up early and going to be late.
For the LORD provides for those he loves,
while they are asleep.

3. Children are a gift from the LORD;
they are a real blessing.
4. The sons a man has when he is young
are like arrows in a soldier’s hand.
5. Happy is the man who has
many such arrows.
He will never be defeated
when he meets his enemies in
the place of judgement.

Everybody's Perfect!

Does anyone ever bring with them the knowledge of Christ when they become born again and baptised with the Holy Spirit? Are not My thoughts not your thoughts – My ways higher than your ways? Is 55:8 NKJV “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.”

When you come to Me, I accept you as you are in whatever place you are at. 1 Corinthians 7:17-24 NKJV “But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all the churches. Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.”

You cannot possibly know all there is to know – this is true – yet so many of you struggle with their daily walk, thinking that they somehow lack knowledge in certain areas, or that they don’t ‘measure up’ to My requirements! Well HEAR THIS! I chose you before you were born! I already knew all about your shortcomings. I have loved and accepted you JUST AS YOU ARE! To Me, YOU ARE ALREADY PERFECT. And not only that, you are whole, complete and lacking in nothing. This is the righteousness in Me. You are the righteousness of God in Christ! 2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

This is why I came! This is why I sacrificed! This is how much I love you! Some of you out there really need to listen to what I am telling you here. Satan would have you believe that you are not worthy to be in My Kingdom. Now this is a lie. It is a part of the great many lies that he is telling you. Right now, he is angry with you, because he knows the truth. He knows all the scriptures too – and he does not want you to succeed. He will go to any lengths to try to tell you that you are not fit to serve Me. Well folks – his time is up! When you start to feel as though you are not good enough, you fight back with the scriptures! You use My word for what it was designed for! Speak it out in faith and watch it change your circumstances! Speak it forth into all your life’s challenges and situations and be amazed at how your life becomes whole – how you become the person that I know you to be.

Romans 5:12-17 NLT “When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. Yes, people sinned even before the law was given. But it was not counted as sin because there was not yet any law to break. Still, everyone died—from the time of Adam to the time of Moses—even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did. Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ. And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”

PS When you find that you are feeling as though you are not acceptable in My sight, remember that I love you now, I have always loved you, and will continue to love you forever and all time and throughout all eternity. You are mine and I am yours. Be that person. Be the one whom I chose long ago. Know and understand that I see you as that person and that nothing you could ever do will change that fact. ALL IS FORGIVEN! Amen. Romans 4:18 NKJV “Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin.” Amen.

All glory for these words, as always, goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Kingdom Rain!

Everybody listen! It is time that we all sing the praises of our Lord Jesus Christ because He is about to rain on you in all His glory! He is about to deliver you to His Kingdom blessings! Behold the lamb has come! Never before have we seen or heard of so much wonder in our lives! It has taken us all many years to arrive at this place of freedom, but now that we are here, let us all give praises to our Lord and King! Let’s all shout hallelujah! Psalm 101:1 NLT “I will sing of your love and justice, LORD. I will praise you with songs.”

The time has come for us all to experience what it means to be a part of His Kingdom. We are about to be filled with so much joy that we will hardly recognise ourselves. We are about to become a part of an amazing time in history that will all unfold very soon. What am I talking about here? I am talking about the coming of His Kingdom to all His followers. Luke 13:29 NLT “And people will come from all over the world—from east and west, north and south—to take their places in the Kingdom of God.”

Our lives are about to be transformed beyond belief! I am saying these things to you as the Lord is putting them in my heart. He knows what you and I have been through thus far, and he knows what is about to happen! All this time we have been waiting and waiting for our miracles, well, I’m here to tell you that the waiting is over! That’s right! We’ve been kept waiting long enough. Satan is not going to win this battle – the battle has been fought and won long ago by Jesus, and His finished work at the cross. John 19:30 NKJV “So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”

There are times and seasons for all things under the sun. We have all experienced much pain and sorrow on our journeys, and now we are being lifted up by His strong arms and catapulted into our new destinies. Our destinies are to be filled with all the joy of the Lord! We are going to be so happy that we cannot help but to sing! Psalm 66:4 NLT “Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs.”

All we need do now is to trust that we are being carried to a new place – a place where we are no longer the forgotten ones. We will be among the many who can say that their lives have been transformed by Jesus. He has saved us all from our sins, and now we can take our place amongst our brethren and enjoy all these great and wondrous blessings as they begin to unfold in our lives. Revelations 14:3 NKJV “They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.”

There will be no more shame – only joy! Nor more tears – only laughter! Nor more slavery – only freedom! Freedom to live as the Lord intends for us all! May God bless you all as you read these words and may He show you the truth for yourselves. Peace, love and mercy be yours in Jesus name – hallelujah! Revelations 21:4 NKJV “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

PS This is only the beginning folks! Just wait and see! Watch and behold with your eyes as the blessings come upon you and your families. Your friends and associates will not believe their eyes! God bless! Isaiah 61:1-3 NKJV “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Amen.

All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Power of God's Love!

Never underestimate the power of God’s love! It is up to you to realign yourself to this truth in order that you may grow accordingly into the wondrous and mighty warrior that He predestined you to be! We are all His warriors – you and I – and we have been chosen to be His instruments all according to the many plans that He made for us long before our birth into this world. Psalm 18:34 KJV “He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.”

Much shall be accomplished if you will allow yourself to be given direction and instruction by Him. He will set you on your path and will provide all that you could ever need so that you will not want for anything throughout your life. The Lord IS our shepherd and indeed we will have EVERYTHING that we need to get the job done. Psalm 23:1 KJV “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”

You will receive much joy from walking this path. Although you will come across many who will not be in agreement with you and the path you are on, and you may receive much criticism from those around you, the one thing to remember always is this: Hebrews 13:5-6 KJV “I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE. So that we may boldly say, THE LORD IS MY HELPER, AND I WILL NOT FEAR WHAT MAN SHALL DO UNTO ME.”

Your enemies may try to cause you problems or afflictions, but the Lord your God will have them fleeing in seven directions! Yes that’s right! He will not allow them to be successful in any of their plans carried out against you because you are now living under His jurisdiction. Psalm 91:1 KJV “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

Our God is an awesome God! He will not let you fail. He will protect you and guide you as you carry out His instructions that He has given you. You will be surprised at how easy this all is and you will be rewarded many times over for your diligence.

As we walk along our paths, day by day, and we are being responsible citizens of His Kingdom, showing Him our faith and trust, the days become larger thereby allowing you to achieve much more than what you could on your own. He has given you ‘length of days.’ Proverbs 3:1-2 KJV “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.”

You will have the same amount of hours as everyone else, but you will be able to just flow from one activity to the next, as though your feet have barely touched the ground! This is what happens when you live in the Kingdom of the Almighty God! This is what it’s like to walk in the supernatural! God will even send His angels to help you to get things done! Psalm 103:20 KJV “Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.”

PS Always remember that although in this life there will be many trials to undergo, the rewards are far beyond anything we can possibly imagine in this earthly life. You will experience Heaven on Earth – The New Jerusalem – and you will spend all of eternity being wrapped up in God’s love! Glory to God forever and ever. Amen!

All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
