Consistency; The Right Approach to Study of the Word

The knowledge of God's Word is very crucial to the Christian race. Proverbs 4:18; But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. You cant afford to live today with the grace of yesterday, and postpone the glory of today to the next (John 4:34; 9:4; 17:22). Not so, because the kingdom business demands urgency; Yes, urgency. Psalms 17:4. Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer. Which means we only overcome the devil by the authority hidden in the Word of God. Why hidden? ...because it has to be searched and applied rightly (2 Timothy 2:15) In fact Jesus knew this, that was why when the devil came [a couple of days after His (Jesus') baptism and public declaration as the Son of God (by the Father)], asking; 'if thou art the Son of God...', Jesus answered the devil it is written. And not; Weren't you there yesterday when God spoke out loud, I heard

Our Totality is In Christ By The Spirit

Galatians 5:25; If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (KJV). NIV translates "Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit", more like keep up, explore... Since we live in/by the Spirit..., that is by the dictates of the Spirit, in the realm of the Spirit. A good analogy of this, is a learner and the driving instructor (associated with Acts 17:28). The learner is registered to/assigned a driving instructor. ( live ) Since the learner has been assigned a driving instructor, he/she has to keep up with the instructor's command/drive by the instructor. ( move ) In the process of following the instructions, the learner becomes accustomed to a level or particular practice, and then it's time to move on to the next level. ( being ) We have The Spirit of God resident in the inside of us (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19), and this is a great privilege, so we have to walk by Him. Acts 17:28a; For in him we live, and move, and have our b

No Not One

I used to say to a friend; if you were the only one on earth, then that would be God's perfect purpose, and Jesus would have still come to redeem(die) for you. You are God's perfect purpose. Despite His majesty; He is meek and lowly, and despite our faithlessness; He is still faithful, In our darkest and hurting situations; He is ever near to love and cheer, Even when we feel the end of hope; He never refuses us the bliss of heaven Jesus knows all about our struggles; He will guide 'til the day is done: There's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus: No, not one! no, not one! What a friend we have in Jesus (John 15:13). What a loving Father, God is; He that spared not His own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall He not with him also freely give us all things? - Romans 8:32. Only Jesus makes the difference, only Him and no other. Find rest in Him today (Matthew 11:28). Remain forever blessed.

The Blessing of the Blessed Trinity

I have always thought that the scripture in 2 Corinthians 13:14 was a conclusive part of a prayer (or a fellowship),  partly because of how and when it is used in a gathering (which is at the end of meetings). So the idea is; when the scripture is quoted, then the meeting is come to an end (y'all can now open your eyes; prayer-time is over :). A probably tolerable reason to think this, is where the scripture is located; at the end of Paul's letter to the Corinthians. Actually, 2 Corinthians 13:14 is the only single verse (I observed) in the bible that references the unique blessing and benefits of the Blessed Trinity (One God in three divine persons) to a Christian. That makes me think; Paul was prophetically praying deep revelation into the lives of the Christians at Corinth. 2 Corinthians 13:14; "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen." Wow this is mind blowing. This reminds me of D

What to do with God's Promises

So many times we come across a portion of the scripture which relates God's intentions (or the father heart of God) for us. I refer to this as God's promises (sometimes as the word of His Grace – in the New Testament). (Personal) I love kids and really, really do. This is partly because, most of the practical things I get to learn (faith-wise) are hidden in their actions (even Jesus affirms this: Matthew 18:3,19:13-14). Let's keep it simple, with a simple analogy – kids. When you tell a kid; I'll buy you a bicycle. Observe carefully a couple of exhibitions that follow; the kid keeps it to memory and sometimes mutters to himself/herself "my uncle said that he will buy me a bicycle", also the kid shares the promise with friends. Secondly (this part gets funny with kids sometimes); they begin to practice/simulate what is not there. For instance, they could get a toy and pretend it was a bicycle to ride (as if they had already gotten it), and for the artis

The Relevance of FAITH to Manifestation

It's possible to undermine the word of God or have less regard to the word of God, especially when we feel - 'I have heard that so many times' or for some other reasons. But that does not change the fact that the Word of God is powerful [Hebrews 4:12]. Have you ever been studying the Bible, and suddenly a particular passage or even just a word suddenly makes new sense to you. At most times God uses that to point to/address our present situation/need or thirst for Him. I call that 'a Word from God', well it could be a sentence or more. Sometimes it could be a clear voice/thought while worshiping/still in His presence. Hebrews 4:12 lets us know that the Word of God is quick and powerful .... However, the power of the word of God is made evident when it comes from God and addresses you. At this point it translates to you and is now spirit and life [John 6:63], it is now light for your path [Psalms 119:105]. At this point once faith is applied, you see unfathomable/u

Dayspring from on High [The Ministry of a Believer]

Dayspring from on high – the revealed ministry of a believer All the prophets of the bible who directly foretold the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, referred to Him by a unique name or names gotten by divine revelation/utterance. Old Testament Ref: Isaiah prophesied Him as Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14), Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), Your Light (Isaiah 60:1-2). Balaam prophesied Him as the Star of Jacob (Numbers 24:17). Micah prophesied Him as the ruler of Israel (Micah 5:2)… [A full revelation of the birth of Jesus was presented by the prophet Isaiah, who through the Spirit covered all the names prophesied (as seen in the book of Isaiah).] An emphasis that was worth making was Him being 'your light'. In Isaiah 60:1-2, Isaiah prophesied: in (v1) arise for your light is come and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee and in (v2) for darkness shall cover the earth…but the LORD [referred to as: your lig

Holiness: His Identity. Pt. 1

The Word of God reveals God in several ways: »Through His acts, and »Through His commands. We can speak of whom He is through these revealing ways. The bible reveals that: God is Love [1 John 4]... God is Gracious [grace] [Hebrews 4]... God is Justice [Deuteronomy 32]... God is Mercy [Psalms 51,136]... God is Wrath [Nehemiah 1]... God is Good [Psalms 100,106]... ... All these are embedded in one: His Holiness; which reveals his totality, his divine identity [Revelation]. His acts and commands of love, grace, wrath, ... are due to his nature of Holiness. This nature of God is heritable [and it's a process that is very much viable - Sanctification Process] You could attempt love without His divine nature, you could be merciful without His divine nature, anyone could try to be good, BUT without brokeness, without His Sanctification Process, you CANNOT be holy, because it is inputed not collected. A revelation in the beatitude [Matthew 5] is that it talks about one thing [

Wholeness: For a Thankful Heart

Philippians 4:6-7 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Luke 17:12-19 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, "Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. " 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, "Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? " 18 "There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this st

The Two Kinds of Marks

A mark set on a thing or object identifies it and could distinct it from others. The bible in some sciptures, implies two different kinds of marks; the mark of bondage and the mark of freedom. Genesis 4:15; God set a mark upon Cain; an indication that He bears a curse, so that no one attempts to kill him. It could be misinterpreted that the essence of the mark in the case of Cain was to protect him from death, but NO, that was not the indication. This was because God had cast him out of HIS presence, and therefore God had no responsibility or divine protection over him. Genesis 4:16 But thank God for the Blood of Jesus (the blood of redemption), and the Grace unleashed. Now we are free to enter into God's presence boldly and obtain grace and mercy (as we bear the mark of freedom). This was the revelation behind the statement of confidence in Galatians 6:17. The marks of Our Lord Jesus Christ, is the mark of freedom. The way to be identified by the Mark of Freedom, is to i
