UNBEATABLE CHURCH


“There is a grace ethos that says; “I will never ever abandon or leave a fallen comrade”. “When we are one; we are Unbeatable!!

IN CHRIST I MOVE AND HAVE MY BEING


” The grace gospel is the only message which puts Jesus at the center of all things. The very essence of life is Christ. In Him is life

GRACE GRAVITY


“Grace Gravity is like a scuba diver who plunges deep into the deep oceans of the Atlantic; observing, savoring and being mesmerized by the beauty of the depths of the ocean bed. He is so in tune with the pull of this whole new world… the captivating evil pleasures of his natural world, can hardly stand in parallel to this extravagant beauty of grace”

I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD


” God exhausted all of His wrath and fury that we perfectly deserved on Jesus Christ at Calvary cross, that we may experience the full blessings of Abraham. Jesus paid the debt He did not owe, because we owed righteousness demand from the supreme justice of God. A bill we could not pay through our rigorous legalistic performance. Did Jesus do all that for you because of your talents or good looks? You deserve death but He gave you quality life. You deserved condemnation, but out of the riches of His kindness and grace;He gave you the free gift of righteousness.” This is too good to be true!!

SIGNIFICANCE


“I think the surest way to affect the next generation for a greater awakening of significance, is the unveiling of the grace gospel to our children. A gospel which point them to their true identity and significance; on the basis of grace through faith in Christ Jesus, and not a daily audition for the rat race of society”

GOD IS NOT DISAPPOINTED IN YOU


Legalistic thinking says; “I messed up big time in this pilgrim journey and I am disappointed with myself.  God is seriously disappointed and mad with me”. Grace gospel says; “Your God is not in a mood swing. He is not mad at you, neither is He disappointed with you. He is madly in love and affectionate towards you, to restore you beyond measure”.photo Credit: Google image

Isaiah 54:7-9 – For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

God exhausted all the wrath that you deserved on Jesus Christ, that you may experience the blessings of Abraham. Jesus paid the debt He did not owe because you owed righteousness demand from the supreme justice of God, you could not pay. Did Jesus do all that for you because of your talents or good looks? You deserve death but He gave you life, you deserve condemnation but out of the riches of His kindness, gave you the free gift of righteousness by grace through faith. This is too good to be true. He did it because He loves you.

Photo Credit: Google imageSadly to say; the Church of Jesus Christ have become so beat down in sin consciousness, guilt and condemnation. We focus more on Sin (weaknesses, imperfection, inadequacies, and all the negatives of life) than focusing our emotions on Christ Jesus, and of His righteous acceptance towards us. She has no confidence and assurance to come before God in boldness to receive grace and mercy. Many believers are struggling in this area I have just mentioned, because of a system of belief which says “God reward us on our goodness and punish us on our imperfections” This is not scriptural but a perverse gospel to put people into bondage again, in their Christian life.

God is not angry with you. He’s already dealt with the sin issue and exhausted His full wrath on Jesus on our behalf. God does not condone with sin in His covenant with us, so to keep us on sinning spree. Under grace, He does not impute our sins and weakness, imperfections against us. Paul affirms that in the book of Romans…

Romans 4:6-8 (KJV) Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

 There is nothing you can do to make God love you more or less. He loves you not because you are lovely; He loves you because He’s love. Are you being weighed down by your weaknesses and blaming yourself for what you could have done right? There is freedom for you my friend!! Today, focus on the blood of Jesus Christ which atoned for your sins ones and for all, with the eternal benefit of a clean conscience, through forgiveness and allow the Holy Spirit to remind you of your completeness in Him. The mercies of God are revealed throughPhoto Credit: Google image this Messianic prophecy by  Isaiah, the prophet. God dealt with the Old Covenant saints according to their performance. But now God says, I am establishing a covenant with you through my Son, to meet all the demands of justice. After Jesus has taken our sins and wrath upon Himself; do we still beat ourselves down? If the accuser of the brethren point you to your weaknesses and mistakes point him to your position in Christ. Satan specializes in distracting you from who you are in Christ so that you will be conscious with your self weakness and past mistakes. he does that to poison your mind and heart from embracing the free gift of the quality life which flows from the Spirit of grace. What do you see?

UNBREAKABLE – The covenant that our heavenly Father have with us cannot be broken by anything. God is not pointing His mighty hands on you in disbelief for not fulfilling your part in this covenant. God is not rebuking you! Yes, He is not; under the new covenant of grace. He is always mending and restoring covenant with us through the finished work. The last time you messed up, God did not change his mind towards you and neither is He treating you special because of your performance level.

For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. (Isaiah 54:9)

Under the New Covenant of Grace, God is not condemning you, neither is He disappointed with you. He is not disappointed with you because you are not doing too much or you made a ridiculous decision in the past. Receiving His love and goodness when we are weak in our faith is what cures our inadequacies, so that we can be empowered to do good works. It is time to reckon our righteous position and allow grace to influence our thinking and the emotions of our heart. Sin persuasions do not change God…it rather blurred our eyes from seeing the overflowing stream of His grace and loving kindness in our direction.

THE SECRET TO WALKING IN PEACEBeloved, you have to position yourself in the arena of peace between yourself and that of God. Not knowing that the battle between you and God has been resolved through the shed blood of Jesus will always keep you in a position, trying to earn peace with God through your performance. God was mad with humanity Photo Credit: www.kristendukephotography.comthrough the original sin of Adam, but has now received us through His tender mercies, not on the basis of our performance or works, but through Jesus. You now have peace with God. The curtain of separation has now been torn into two, with complete access to the Father of love and mercies. He has not hidden His face from you, because of your sins and neither has He withheld His goodness because of your low par performance in your Christian life. Here is the good news as recorded by Apostle Paul through the Spirit, in the book of Romans.

Romans 5:1-2 “1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

The message of the angels to the poor shepherds is the greatest news of pure joy God sends to humanity, when God came down in the person of His Son, to reconcile men to himself. This  message of peace on earth and goodwill towards men is not just a cliché on Christmas season. It paints a glorious picture of the place of mankind through the lenses of the perfect sacrifice of Christ. The war is over; a new day of salvation, acceptance, love and favor is here for those who will believe in Christ. Stop fighting your way through the jungles of life and let His peace wash your heart.  Luke gospels trumpet it clearly;

Luke 2:13-14  (NKJV) 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

When it feels like God is mad with you and disappointed in you because you haven’t done enough to make Him fulfill His part of the bargain; you completely falls from grace. God’s healing grace or physical provision cannot be earned by how holy you are or perfect your days has gone by. The gift of righteousness has brought us into the grace terrain to get access to God’s goodness through the persuasion of His great love. God’s goodness towards you is not to condone with our mistakes. Should one not deal with his mistakes before you ask for favor from God? It is only God’s goodness which can break the power of weakness and failure. On our own; we are dead!! Scripture says that;

You surely don’t think much of God’s wonderful goodness or of his patience and willingness to put up with you. Don’t you know that the reason God is good to you is because he wants you to turn to him? He is not afraid to be Good. (Romans 2:4 CEV)

Why should I be afraid to receive His abundant grace, to meet all of my needs? So ask, knock and seek…surely you will find Him when you least expect. He is not angry but closer to you than a brother. I have had people complain to me with anger in their face. They say things like; “I have prayed, paid my tithe, anoint myself with oil and done all there is to be done and yet God has not restored my life”. My friend you don’t deserve any good thing from the Lord on the basis of what you do. He loves you and therefore cried out; calling you to come to His throne when you have even messed up. Lighten up and come to the end of yourself and run to Jesus, even now. Prayer, tithe, and offering are scripturally encouraged, but they are not a means to which God will cause His healing on you. (This is another subject in itself)  What about giving money to God to motivate Him? As a covenant child of God you are guaranteed to walk in the blessings of God according to your position as the righteousness of God. Your giving to God is motivated by His love for you and your confident trust in Him, as your source of sufficiency.

ON YOUR MARK, GO! – The book of Hebrews reveals the heart of our high Priest. Christ Jesus, our chief priest sits on the right hand side of God through His complete work on Photo Credit: Google imagethe tree in royalty and power. He can be touched with our infirmities and weakness. He is not throwing tantrums every passing minute of the day. He has thrown a wild open invitation for all who believe in His name to come;For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

At what time do we come to the throne room of grace? When we feel we are too okay in our own right or when we have needs? I believe scripture challenges us to come with an attitude of boldness and not of shame and self defeatism heart and beat down conscience, trying to negotiate with God with our tears and religious emotions. It is a matter of a complete and sincere knowledge of true righteousness and our supernatural connection with God which goes beyond any human limitation. Nothing; absolutely noting should keep you from the love embrace of the Father.

salt and lightA PRAYER TO PRAY- Thank you Father God for loving me just as I am! Today I come into your very presence; Jesus my high priest to receive grace and mercy. Thank you for saturating my heart with eternal pleasures and beauty for my ashes

A TRUTH TO REMEMBER- I am love and crazily accepted by the God who created heaven and earth. His love for me changes my perception towards life and my relationship with Him

A THOUGHT TO CHEW ON – As a covenant child of God you are guaranteed to walk in the blessings of God, according to your position in the righteousness of Christ.

A LIFE TO LIVE- I will share the truth of God’s mercies to those who are beat down in condemnation and sin consciousness by point them to God’s goodness and open hands.

   My deepest love to you my dear friend. With your eyes on Christ, the victory is a done deal. – McDaniels Gyamfi

The imago dei

She is so beautiful

Gorgeously blessed

Through and through

She lost it all;

A decade ago

When beauty took a new form

A direction;

The wrong direction

3

Alas!

She joined the rat race

Unending universal marathon

4

Tell her!

The crushed petal of the flower;

You are beautiful

Just as you are

5

Tell her;

Come out from them

Stand tall

Live happily

The goddess of significance

She is weary and worn-out

Bruised and battered on both feet

She didn’t know she got  what

She has been chasing for a decade

You are;

Priceless

Rare

Worthy

Dearly loved and accepted

Into an abiding beauty of God

 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or hair arrangement.  Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit that is so precious to God. 1 Peter 3:3-4  (TLB)

YOU ARE NOT A SINNER BECAUSE YOU SIN.

Do you believe?

I decided to reblog this post for one reason. My perception of the unbelieving world has to always be in alignment with the heart of God. I share with you today, this timeless inspiration from the pinnacle of God’s grace, to inspire and motivate us all to jump into the fire with a new attitude of grace and mercy and snatch people out of the fire of destruction into the kingdom of God and of His Christ. Be blessed and energized with fresh zeal and passion for Christ Jesus.

In Christ Love

He that kneweth not sin became sinful

He that kneweth sin was made righteous

Have I not made thee in my likeness?

Shall I measure thee, Oh fairest among all?

To the societal standards of significance

Thy beauty surpass them all, on every scale

The dark seasons of time changeth thee not

The flower fades the grass withers but thou art

Completely complete and wholly whole, within

Art thou not a reflection of the true essence of life?

Just as I am so art thou in this blemished world

A salt to preserve

A light to shine

Ashes to ashes,

Dust to dust;

 An end?

WISDOM UNMERITTED


“Divine wisdom is the towel which dries out perspiration and restlessness from the face of a failure, and moisturizes him with a winning attitude, to face tomorrow with conviction and passion”

– McDaniels Gyamfi –

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7 NKJV)

Sin corrupted the mind of humanity, to the extent that walking in alignment with the thoughts of God was hardly possible. This is the fall from glory in the dimension of

our mental capabilities. Adam; the first man, was not educated in man’s educational system. His complete knowledge of God and all the creation, surpasses the intelligence of our modern sciences and that of the wisdom of the ages. He had a conscience that was so sharp and accurate. Guessed work was not a part of his DNA. Adam knew the very mind of God, effortlessly; naming of all the animals in the garden of Eden was executed with precision and with such grace, just as God would have named each one of them.

The Lord God formed out of the ground every living animal of the field and every bird of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man named all the animals, the birds of the air, and the living creatures of the field, but for Adam no companion who corresponded to him was found. (Genesis 2:19-20 NET)

Wisdom is the ability to know what to do when you don’t know how to do it. You can also say that, wisdom is the application of knowledge. Adam did have a perfect knowledge and unusual ability to execute so well than any other creature, because he was created in the very image of God. The believer is not an upgrade in status; through recreation. We have received a brand new nature in the likeness of God, through the second Adam, as icons of godly wisdom to execute the will of God. The child of God can walk in supernatural wisdom, irrespective of how low ones IQ level is. Yes! It does not matter how bad your grades were, in high school or college!

How do you see yourself my friend? Do you feel like nothing good can come out from you, because of how negatively you have branded yourself or have allowed the standards of society to cut you into nothing? I dare you today and double dare you to rise from the self defeatism branding. You are not a sinner saved by grace into a sinful nature of ignorance. You were a sinner saved by grace to inherit the righteous nature and wholeness nature of God, to prosper in your mental capacity.  Here is the good news; Christ has become to us wisdom from God to grant us the ability to know, understand and to connect us into the purpose of God through the indwelling Spirit.

The world of sin does not have the guiding light of a higher consciousness of God; it is the believer who has been endowed with supernatural knowledge of the plan and the will of God through our regenerated spirit, to be able to walk in Godly wisdom in this life. The failure of the Church in the 21st century is due to her lack of dependence on this gracious place of the quality life of God, which enables us to download profound and absolute solutions for our chronic lives and perpetual uncertainties.

1 Corinthians 2:16 (NKJV) For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

walk not aloneWe have the mind of Christ…Do you know that if you constantly walk with a wise man, you will literally be changed by his wisdom to act in his principles and values
in life; in so doing you literally become skillfully in your doings. The mind of Christ is a position and identity through grace; in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit escorts us daily into the very creative thoughts and principles of the creator of the universe, to act with certainty and peace without any iota of doubts or failure. What are you talking about McDaniels? One had to be well-educated in formal educated for you to be abreast with times, seasons and purpose!! I do not discourage formal education. Education only touches the surface of life, but the deep things in life really belongs to God and He reveals it to His covenant children through the Holy Spirit.

I have personally seen great results in so many areas of my life and ministry over the years. I don’t consider myself as a smart guy by world’s standards – I live with this principle of allowing God’s word to dominate my mental faculties when I have to make a complex decision or step into a new horizon of God’s purpose for my life, in general. This grace is not reserved for some selected few; you can walk in this ability which has been given to you freely to know all things by listening to the voice of the Spirit and executing His perfect will in all things. Are you overwhelmed by life puzzles or you feel so inadequate to handle the difficulties of life? You have the mind of Christ…is Christ mind redundant? If you believe that your Saviors mind is without error or fail, and then understand that, just as He is so are you in this world. (See 1 John 4:17)

The believer has an advantage over the unbeliever. We can learn to trust the Holy Spirit to empower us to know the mind of God, because the finished work of Christ has placed the new creation believer in a position with His Father through Christ, to get access to the depths of His heart, about all things in life. Do you know salt and lightmy friend, that office politics cannot stop a believer to live beyond the expectations in the work place?

Cease every opportunity to excel at your work place whether you toss pizza or you mop the floor. Your boss or supervisors inability to drive the company to peak level performance frustrates his heart and changes his or her demeanor. He easily becomes angry for no reasons…in spite of all his management credentials and many years of experience in organizational maximization. You can calm him or her down with practical solutions that no management guru can offer, because you have access to the ocean of wisdom from above which can stabilize a tilting corporation. Your wisdom and guidance will marvel coworkers and superiors. How do I do that? Rest in your position in Christ and the wells of life flow through your mental outlet.

Joseph and Daniel were men who shined so bright in heathen nations. It is recorded in the Bible to remind us that mountains and odd situations do not stop the believer from shining. Was it because they (Joseph and Daniel) were schooled to be that great by men’s educational system? Surely they were educated through the system of their enslavement, but their dependence was on God was seen in complex situations which were beyond the wisdom of the wise. They outshone the wisdom of the wise, because God’s light was their guiding principle in their decisions. That is exactly what Jesus does for the believer whose mind is centered on Him – you shine almost all the time.

It is recorded about Daniel; Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the highest realm of his kingdom. So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him. Daniel 6:3-4 (NKJV)

idlogo2And of Joseph, it is recorded of how he relies on Godly wisdom to helped fellow prisoners who were dealing with uncertainties in their life; Then the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, had a dream, both of them, each man’s dream in one night and each man’s dream with its own

interpretation. And Joseph came in to them in the morning and looked at them, and saw that they were sad. So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in the custody of his lord’s house, saying, “Why do you look so sad today?” And they said to him, “We each have had a dream, and there is no interpreter of it.” So Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me, please.” – Genesis 40:5-8(NKJV)

It is recorded in the New Testament of how the Spirit of Christ leads us into greener pastures, effortlessly. The dumb and the dumber by societies label can shout from the roof top through the valleys of darkness that wisdom is their portion too.

 1 Corinthians 2:10-13 (NKJV) 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For which man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we 

a walk cover (1)

have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to 

us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words that man’s wisdom teaches but those the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Don’t shut this book down friend – I am totally not against what secular education has done. These folks (Daniel and Joseph) prospered in the dark ages of history because they were favored by the light of God’s wisdom, for a greater purpose. This is your season and moment to plug yourself into the grace dimension of God, as you relinquish the throne you have built for self weakness and allow Christ to take the center stage of your life. Be still in prayer and in the meditation of the word for the renewing of the mind. Set yourself free from the shock of uncertainty holding society down and completely align your thoughts with the heartbeat of God. You will know what you have to do at any moment of your life. Wisdom is available to anyone who asks, and with a heart of faith, the shackles of fear shall be broken. You are wise in your position as covenant child; walk with solution expectations on your feet, with your eyes on Christ.
