ESCAPE TO REALITY

HE LIFTED UP OUR ILLNESS, HE CARRIED OUR PAIN.


When we believe wrongly, we are doomed to fail in our walk with God. The religion of “I need to try to become” always renders the religion of “who I am in Christ” null and void. There is no glory in self efforts, except His efforts for our total life prosperity and wholeness, on the Cross of Calvary.

Jeremiah 33:6 ESV Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security”.

…THIS IS FULFILLED IN CHRIST JESUS Thank God we are not the sick and poor by any means, through His life. He has revealed in us; health, healing, and abundance of prosperity. It  takes faith to see life from a prosperity perspective, instead of the weak, poor, miserable, and victim mentality. I can understand how challenging life can be sometimes…the ill health, rejection, pain, poverty, stress, anxiety, and all the everyday uncertainties. These underlying challenges of the fallen world do not nullify the riches and realities of the new covenant, in Christ Jesus. Friend, God’s word can be accessed through believing. Your total life prosperity is a done deal in Christ. The underlying principle of victorious christian life is having right believing. The just shall always live by faith. Having the right opinion about God and right persuasions in our heart. When we believe wrongly, we are doomed to fail in our walk with God. The religion of “I need to try to become” always renders the religion of “who I am in Christ” null and void. There is no glory in self efforts, except His efforts for our total life prosperity and wholeness, on the Cross of Calvary.

Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIVUK) Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

All the agonizing pain Jesus had to go through on the cross of Calvary was to set things right, once and for all. He was to suffer in our place that we might experience a newness of life in His resurrection. If He took it away, then I don’t need to carry it again. The focal point of the gospel is the cross. It was at the cross that the Savior swapped places with me that I may celebrate the quality life, right now. Sickness, pain, and diseases are not master over your life anymore. You now inherited a brand new of life in your born again spirit. The Scripture above says; “Surely, He took up our pain and bore our suffering…” The Hebrew word ‘aken (truly, firmly, surely, we know, in fact) from the root word kuwn which means to be fixed, firmly established, be restored. There is no doubt and uncertainty for the believer who feels like the sky is falling on their head. You can hope again, because Christ Jesus has established and fixed your life firmly on His finished work, without shaking. He did it by taking your pain and having to lift your suffering in His body, for you to share in His quality life. The NET renders it this way, in verse four of Isaiah 53…But he lifted up our illnesses, he carried our pain; even though we thought he was being punished, attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done.

WHEN I THINK OF HIS DEATH Anytime you think of Jesus death, don’t blame Judas, the Jews, the Pharisees or anybody. Just think about your position in Him through His death. To think that He was punished by the soldiers with cruelty,  leaves scars of anger in our hearts against His killers, and that dismisses the reality of His death in our lives. Jesus was pierced for your transgression. He was crushed for your iniquities. The punishment that ensures a life of peace, on this side of eternity was upon Him. Whenever I watch the Passion of Christ, I wish I was there to have

been the hero who saved Him from all the atrocities He had to go through. Tears will run through my eyes with anger against Judas and most of the disciples who deserted Him. At the end of the day, the Saviors love towards me is what I need to grasp. He died for what i did that I may share in His life. (See Romans 6:3-5) This is an established reality and there is no demon or power which can revert what Christ has wrought for you and I on the tree. Today, we can boldly say, through the trials and pain; “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) 14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith”. (Galatians 3:13-14 NET)

Christ is not literally, going to redeem you again; He has already redeemed you from the curse of the law into an everlasting riches of grace. (See Roman 5:1-2) The riches of the new covenant through Christ (Abrahamic blessing) are yours by faith, in what has already been done on the tree. Your faith is the bucket into the crystal clear wells of grace, for where you ails. You are not under a curse of sickness and sin and neither are you under divine wrath. You are the redeemed one that Satan want to make you feel as bound. You are not broke nor poor; you are the blessed one. Satan ploy is to make you see yourself and life from a wrong mirror. Why all this hell? You are probably not utilizing the super abundant grace in Christ. Remember, Jesus did not negotiate confusion and anxiety in your mind, on the Cross. To be earnestly expecting evil in our daily lives renders the grace of God void in our lives. You already have peace in your spirit. The Bible says; “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV)

WHAT HAS GOD NOT GIVEN US? Friend, the complete work of Christ did not approve or endorse fear into our lives. We have not been given the power to fear. Whether it is the fear of tomorrow, or the fear of the unknown, the fear of success or the fear of today! He has given us power; you are not the weak label society has placed on you. Stop acting wimpy and being intimidated by life challenges and demonic illusions. The power that resurrected Jesus Christ, resides in your spirit. (See Roman 8:11) This is the reason you are more than a conqueror and greater, the resident power in you than whatever scares you out there. (See 1 John 4:4, Romans 8:37)

ARE YOU FEELING UNLOVED AND HARD LOVING OTHERS?  Love is abundantly flowing in you like the Niagara Falls. I tell you, you don’t need more love to love or to feel loved.Prayer All you need to know is to tapped into the unconditional and perfect love of God for you, which cast out all fears.(See 1 John 4:15-17) He first loved you by inviting you into a banquet, and His banner over you is loyal love. The perfect love that cast out fear is the revelation of His great love towards you. You cannot enjoy or give what you have not received. (Check my posts on the subject of God’s love for more details)

DO I HAVE SOUND MIND? To answer your question, let scripture speak for itself…For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV) Someone may say; “if God had given me sound mind, why am I walking in anxiety and panic attacks”? It took me many years in understanding this truth, before us today; “but of power, and love, and of sound mind”. The Christian life is an exchanged life of Christ Jesus. We live and move in Him. Just as He is so are we on this world. We have become complete in him, lacking in nothing. The mind of Christ therefore becomes the mind of the believer, in our position with Him as Sons and daughters. When one receives Christ, he automatically becomes a new creature, loaded with the fullness of God in our born again spirit. Inwardly we are loaded with the presence of God, but it only takes faith to draw from the wells of your salvation. We have been taught to work hard for sound mind and all the other virtues instead of resting in Christ Jesus for the manifestation of His life in us. Scripture says that we are complete and wholly whole in Him.

 Colossians 2:9-10 (AMP) For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10 And you [a]are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].

When we fix our minds on the completeness of our spirit, our soul begins to show the very nature of our being, and it automatically affects our external world. This truth applies to everything you are in Christ. Healing manifest in your body, wisdom activates in your mental faculties as you fix or set your mind on the truth of your identity in Christ. You can’t walk in sound mind, power and of love if you are more of yourself, even though you have the fullness of God in your spirit. Isaiah writes; “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.” (Isaiah 26:3 AMP)

ARE WE HOPING FOR GOOD? Whatever you are going through today, my friend you can change what you see or experience that you don’t like, by changing your thought patterns or belief systems. Stop trying to earn peace and wash your heart with constant peace, by being thankful for the finished work of Christ, which has made you victorious over the constant fears Photo Credit: Google imageand loneliness. Begin to expect good from the Lord instead of living in the vagueness of life. Jesus is your hope and to hope in Him for the manifestation of bubbling over peace and joy is to earnestly expect good from Him. Many are fantasizing the quality life, yet feeling empty and bankrupt. Christ in you is the hope of the glory.

Romans 15:12-13  (AMP) 12 And further Isaiah says, There shall be a [a]Sprout from the Root of Jesse, He Who rises to rule over the Gentiles; in Him shall the Gentiles hope.13 May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

BY GRACE, WE ARE LOADED TO BE A BLESSING. When Jesus said signs will follow the disciples, He did not mean to say; “this is just for a moment or temporarily”. He was saying to the Church, all those who will place their trust in me by faith and learn to walk with me on the basis of grace, will experience an uncommon demonstration of power in their lives; continuously and consistently. We become conduits of life to the world. How can the house receive fresh water from its water taps when the pc pipes are clogged with dirt?

 Mark 16:17-18 ESV And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Semeion the Greek word for signs; pronounce say-mi’-on denotes that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and is known of miracles and wonders, by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God’s. What is the proof of the gospel in your life? What are you showcasing to your friends and neighbors? Do they see the freedom and power that distinguish you from them or they are daily witnessing a dismantled, shattered mirror of the bathroom.

HOW DO YOU DISTINGUISH NIKE AND ADIDAS SNEAKERS? You probably wouldn’t have to do too much but to check the logo designs on the item at hand, to prove the difference. The child of God has the trade mark of God, to distinguish us from others. Healing and perfect health is the trade mark of God in our born again spirit and must manifest in our NIKEbodies. They are a byproduct of our salvation. I doesn’t matter what the findings of the Doctor says or the conclusions of the expert on Wall Street. Friend, you can surely believe in the words of Christ for your personal edification and miracle, to walk over scorpions, serpents and not to be buffeted with all forms of diseases and weakness in your body. You are completely marked and sealed in the Holy Spirit (See Eph 1:13-14) to protect you from demonic entrance; for Christ to manifest Himself through you, to impact others. Divine healing for your body and that of others is a sure sign of our eternal redemption! Don’t ignore your honorable place in Christ and embrace erroneous doctrines which approves weakness and honors poverty in all areas of life.

Many don’t see themselves as distinguished; they are wimpy, weak and sickly and complain all day like a falling branch without life and hope for tomorrow. They have been taught that there are only a handful of super believers who have been empowered to walk in power and authority over demons of sickness and ill-health. You are loaded with the life of Christ to be alive on this side of eternity not because of what you can do but on the basis of your position as a child of the son of the Most High God. Check your Christian resume:”You are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you” (Rom 8:37)

I DECREE AND DECLARE: When you stop whining, you start shinning. Arise and shine my good friend in the power of the Lord in all that you do and say. Say yes to an uncommon healthpeace-key-703x201, favor, strength, and recovery, and power manifestation! Say to your soul now, right here; “I am a sign and a wonder to my generation. I boldly confess that I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and His mark of distinction upon my life. I am uncommon and set apart to walk in victory over diseases. I have become a conduit of health and prosperity to my generation. By the laying of my hands, I cast out satanic influence of weakness, defeat, discouragement and sicknesses in any part of my being. I unleash abundant of prosperity and security from the wells of my salvation, to permeate every endeavor of my life on this side of life, in Jesus glorious name”. Amen!

YOU ARE MY PRAISE: THE VIBRANT PRINCIPLE FOR SUPERNATURAL CHANGE!


The believer is encouraged by scripture to approach all of life difficulties with the right attitude, instead of being bundled with anxiety and worries. Paul writes; “My brethren, when you find Photo Credit:shugsprisonblog.blogspot.com -yourselves hedged in by various trials, consider it a pure joy” (James 1:2) and to also be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus (1 Thess. 5:18).

How that sounds oxymoron!  Why should I be thankful when life hurts so bad? We are thankful to God in all circumstances not because we accept the condition (sickness, poverty, hurt or pain) as something God is testing us with, to prove our faithfulness. We are not being motivated to accept life challenges as our fate. It is totally wrong to accept anything bad as your destiny. God want to give us good things. As a matter of fact, every good gift comes from Him. When we rejoice through the storms of life; We are not surrendering to adversity but rather, we acknowledge Him as our very source of hope and deliverance, who has already made a way out through the power of His grace.

To worry over life issues seems to be the path so many believers are treading upon today. They are either worried whether it is God who is punishing them for not doing too well in their Prayerchristian faith or somehow God is not capable of delivering their soul from the snare of the wicked. David said my help comes from the Lord; a very present help in times of trouble …(See Psalm 121, Psalm 46). How many of us by worrying can add an hour to our life span or activate joy to affect us mentally? It has been scientifically proven that worry and stress are two great siblings who can take you to the grave before your time. You matter to God. You can’t die before your time my friend! Hear the words of our Lord Jesus Christ; “Matthew 6:27-31 (NIVUK) 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]28 ‘And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?”

There is a powerful principle in Jesus teaching, about trust. Having a great deal of understanding that God is the source of the quality life for the believer is the first step to freedom. We can trust the Father for all His sufficient grace to walk in victory over the evil works of Satan instead of being torn apart by our surroundings, through doubt. Watch this in Verse 31: “He said so do not worry, saying! What is the point? Worry leads us to saying all the negative stuff instead of affirming the positive. Don’t say what shall I eat or what shall we drink or what shall we wear, Jesus said. Those are questions of doubt and not of faith. How does Jesus wants us to handle the pressure? God simply want me and you to trust Him through it all! Jesus was saying something like; C’mon folks,why are you losing your mind on something God can handle” Why the sweat and self effort? Have you forgotten the birds and the grass of the fields? Your Father in heaven feeds the birds and clothe the grass, even better than the arrays of the richest man that ever lived”. Are you not better and important to my father than the birds of the air?. “Stop worrying with all your complaint and doubts and start believing that I am your source”.
When God becomes your praise and affirmation instead of confessing and affirming your woes, you are aligning your life into His purpose. In the natural environment of faith through love, God dwells and do wonders. The Psalmist,being surrounded by innumerable forces of the wicked did acknowledged God as his deliverer, who is able to save him from all of his fears. He boldly declared; “But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed. [Psalm 22:3-5 NKJV]

Friend, your God is a deliverer! He can be trusted! He is wholly whole and completely complete in Himself, lacking nothing. He sits as King of Kings over our case when we adore and laud

Yes God can and He will fix where life hurts. Just surrender it all to Him!

Yes God can and He will fix where life hurts. Just surrender it all to Him!

Him as our true King and dearly Father. The word praise in the Hebrew is halal pronounce haw-lal’ which has the connotation to shine (fig. of God’s favor), to praise, boast, be boastful, to be praised, be made praiseworthy, be commended, be worthy of praise or to madly make a show of your God by shining forth a celebration of who he is and who you are in Him. To talk about your problems seem to be the usual way many have been taught, to pray to God. Friend, that is not what Jesus wants us to approach negative situations. He want you to speak to the situation by the authority invested in you, as a child of the great God. Always speak to your problems about the goodness of your God and not rather to tell God about your pains. Mustard faith must speak against the mountains of life.

Make God (Rapha) worthy of your praise as you fill your mouth with life giving words, to shine forth His glory, power and anointing over the clouds of negativity which always imprison your mind and hinder you from enjoying the abundant life”. One of my favorite scriptures in the bible admonish us to return to the Lord with words; “Hosea 14:2 (NASB) Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to Him, “Take away all iniquity And [a]receive us graciously, That we may present the fruit of our lips.

We see in chapter twenty of second chronicles; King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah returned to the Lord with words of; “He is good and His mercies endures forever”,e14bfd323fd344_2f_9_76efb21b-post when the latter were disturbed by a  diabolical plan by a confederacy of nations, to annihilate Judah. Paul and Silas returned to the Lord, singing Psalms and hymns, in Acts Chapter Sixteen when he and Silas were severely beaten and thrown into jail. In both of these situations, God enthroned among His people with supernatural deliverance and favored them gloriously, because they were shining forth who God is and who they were in Him. When God’s love filled our thoughts, perfect love from God will cast off the restraint of fear. Faith shall be unleashed when it seem like everything has come to an end, as you talk, pray, sing or thing about God’s great power to save. Your words are your songs or communication tool to the realm of the spirit. You are either in alignment with the principles of God or succumbing to the ways of Satan. Get out from the pity party my friend and immersed yourself into an atmosphere of praise and worship of the only God who is mighty to save, and see His salvation grace envelope your soul with supernatural restoration. To Judah, God ambushed their enemies and gave them effortless victory. In His great power, He shook the foundation of the prison holding His servants with an earthquake. The result of faith in your God is always beautiful. Are you dealing with a bad situation? Agree with Job today; “I know my redeemer lives…” (Job 19:25). Let it be your prayer and confession.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14ESV)

Start now! Sing and talk about God’s love and His desire to want to see you prosper in all things. This may seem as weird, a thing to do when you have been diagnosed with an incurable disease or you are going through all kinds of trials, left and right. I urge you, if you can’t even open your mouth to say a word, let your thoughts be governed by His goodness towards you. To Jehoshaphat, Paul and Silas, boasting in God was probably not cool but they chose not to depend on the arm of the flesh or sitting in the dark, asking why. He is good and His mercies endures forever, to me is the greatest weapon a christian can rely upon. “I know am sick and down, (I am not denying that I am not) weak, empty, sick, broke, confused, rejected and broken, but God you are good towards me, and your mercies and grace is taking care of this situation”. This is a fantastic outlook of the faith life, when one boasts and become still in His God. Friend, the Holy Spirit, always goes to work in your life just as He did in the life of Paul and Silas, and the people of Judah.

I DECREE & DECLARE: “Healing rivers flow like a mighty ocean through my veins, skin, flesh, and tendon, and over every organ in my body today! I praise you my great physician, for thCAK6I5WFyou have save me from the perils of pain and rescue me through the power of the Holy Ghost, in Jesus name. “I boldly confess that your peace, righteousness, and joy in the Holy Ghost is the hallmark of my daily life. You are highly lifted up over my case and save me from the arrow that flies by noon day or the terror by night. For my help comes from you, heavenly Father; you dearly watch over my life through this storm. I will come out unharmed,  through faith in the power of your son Jesus Christ” Amen!

Precious one, you can now expect only good from the Lord. Let your gaze be fixed in all the precious promises of God in Christ Jesus. See you on top of things! Have a blessing and a joyous life in Christ Jesus. You are an over-comer in God. You win!!

EFFORTLESS BREAKTHROUGH


Does God have to be loosed from some form of inactivity through one’s white-hot activity, before one can receive from Him? 

“I need a breakthrough” “Pray hard until God intervene” “I will not let God go until He blessed me today” “We need an open heaven today…don’t sit there and pray like you have no problems” “Lift up your voice and pray with passion…violent take it by force” “Receive faith that moves God”. These are some of the passionate sentiments of the believer, pushing real good to ignite the heavens for quick response. Can the believer motivate God to action?

IS GOD BEING LAZY OR BORED – I grew up within the Pentecostal and Charismatic circles, as a Christian. As a charismatic believer, we had the belief that faith has to move God into action. This form of negative believes is the source of “operation push prayer marathon” “breakthrough prayer chain” “power to open heavens” “violent take it by force” and what have you in some circles within the Christendom. It is totally absurd to think that God is lazily sitting in a huge sofa in heaven, with zero interest in the affairs of men, until some spiritual bulldozers pray so hard to bulldozed Him into action. The idea of chain prayer is not wrong and neither are passionate prayers wrong in any sense. We are truly encouraged by scripture to pray without ceasing. I love prayer, fasting and shouting when I am in the presence of God, sometimes. But I don’t try to motivate God with my form or style of prayer when I pray to God. I pray because I love to talk to my daddy and plug into what He is already doing.

FLEE FROM TOILSOME LABOR Jesus wants His followers to be free from worry and self effort, because He already has knowledge about our needs. A knowledge which is accompanied by a strong desire to meet our needs, at all times. The Bible says; “25Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? [Matthew 6:25–26]

Anxiousness will cause you to try to work God to walk you out of troubles instead of resting in the caring heart of your heavenly Father, who leads you as a good shepherd, through trials and troubles [The valley of shadow of death]. The breakthrough mentality to motivate a lazy God to action is an insult to the finished work of Christ. It always birth out unrest and confusion in one’s life, which leads to human mechanization as a substitute for originality. There is nothing you can do on your own to breakthrough against satanic limitations. Recognizing your identity in Christ as a victor is the first step to exercising your rightful authority against Satan and his cohorts. If one does not rest in the already established grace of Christ, there is always a question of when will I breakthrough? You are always looking for what’s next to motivate God into quick response. When we gather in His presence, needing a miracle, we don’t try to bombard heaven with prayer missiles to awaken a sleeping God. We stretch our hands in faith and receive a manifestation of His presence which is always with us. We don’t plead with Him to come. He is already in our midst. The fact that when we come together and we have no feelings about God does not means He is sitting somewhere, minding His own business. Our feelings can be deceptive but His promise is unchanging. The scripture says; “I will not leave you nor forsake you” [Heb 13:5]

GOD IS MOVING OR NOT MOVING? – Friend God is already ‘moved’ through Christ Jesus with white-hot passion to see you prosper in all things. Are you not more valuable than the birds of the air? Just as the birds of the air naturally rest on the established laws of God for their provision, God want to see the believer walk in constant trust, in His abundant riches and love. If your kids had to always motivate you into action by bowing and throwing praises on you like a god before you cover their back with clothing and put food on their table, then you are not a good parent. Our Father in Heaven is caring. We have not learned how to receive. We have become mere beggars in our prayers. We think the harder you pray the greater impact you make. There is difference between noise making and real prayers, which hinges on covenant relationship. Praying longer hours, few seconds, undertone or shouting is not the key. The key is the motivation. Don’t ever think wrong motivation pleases God. We can do the right thing with wrong motivation. In the sixteenth chapter of the Book of Acts of the apostles, Paul and Silas praised God in their prison cells and suddenly there was a miracle. What was the motivation? Were they singing to motivate God to move on their behalf or it was a sense of trust in their God, even in their woes? God did not respond because their song was so touching, heaven could not delay, but to swiftly respond. I believe their songs were not means to compel God, but a faithful assurance in who He. Their faith in God in times of trouble, bear the fruit of supernatural escape. Hear from the lips of the Master; “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words”. [Mathew 6:7 ESV]

THE BREAKTHROUGH EXPERTS – Breakthrough is one of the common catchphrases in the body of Christ. To the Pentecostals or the Charismatic believer, breakthrough is centered on breaking the defenses, barriers, and limitations of Satan and his cohorts with some form of spiritual force or work, in order to receive from God [We always see a glass ceiling over our heads, that needs to be broken]. It’s also a lifestyle of passionate desires for an open heaven on one’s life. There are some folks in the body of Christ who consider themselves as experts in breaking-through into the throne of God, through special techniques and methods. They have the “7 Principles to Break through Into the Heavens”, “14 Ways to Prayers that Move God”, “21 Keys to Pulling God from Heaven to kiss the earth”. Which of the techniques moves God? These man centered prescriptions are based on rules instead of a relationship with God. Those who are not armed with such abilities to breakthrough into a kingdom they are already in are considered as babes. If you can’t shout, fast longer days, pray in a certain way or style, some deeper blessings will elude you, they say. Am not surprised the lack of power and authority within the body of Christ. Men are running around looking for an intermediate experts to connect them to God. You have a privilege to speak to your God irrespective of how weak you are in prayer. Just pray my friend!

FAITH JUDGES GOD RIGHT Faith is not a special ability within the human heart [attained by special men] that compels God to act on our behalf. [See Romans 12:3] The simplest definition of faith is having a good opinion about God. Our faith in God is a foundation of a persuasion in our hearts about who God is, what He has done, and who we are in Him through Jesus Christ. The believer has the measure of faith in his born again spirit to rightly judge God as faithful in all of His manifold promises, in Christ Jesus. You already got faith to believe God.

IT’S NOT ABOUT TECHNIQUES – Friend, in your worries, you don’t need techniques…all you need is Jesus. Just call on Him and believe in His word about your life, and see the Spirit goes to work to comfort your heart. That is an effortless breakthrough. Many Christians has waited for breakthrough for decades and they feel so frustrated about God. God is not wicked to hide himself from us and only special efforts by special men can touch His heart of love. Listen friend, Satan is a defeated foe…yes he will rise against us with doubts in our hearts to weakened our faith. He can be the stronghold in the minds of your children or partner. Yet you don’t need to go through 21 days of prayer works before God will intervene. Your prayer and fasting does not move God…Fasting rather helps you to control the carnal weakness of the body so you can be in alignment with God’s word. I did not say fasting is not good. Fasting is good but it doesn’t change God, it rather changes us.

YOU GOT POWER ON THE INSIDE – My friend, there is Power on your side, every micro second of the day. Just speak the word into reality. Speaking God’s word through the lips of faith is not a command to usher God into action. We can speak to our problems as we recognize the authority of His word and declare it with our faith in Him. Mountains move, sicknesses bow, confusion disappear and victory manifest into our reality. Your confession didn’t move God…your confession recognized an overflowing current of God against Satanic energies. I am not against breakthrough prayers but against prayers that men work on to try to move God into action. Have you ever heard preachers say stuff like; “After I finished my anointed prayers and confession, God moved so powerful, over the place”. God didn’t move an inch…God was already in the place like a mighty wave but men were dull about His activity. God’s power is with you at this moment, whether you are at 7 Eleven or in the train. You represent Christ and other believers like you in that place. Just because you don’t know does not mean you are the only Christian in that place. What about the Church fellowship, family in prayer, or the bible study group. Jesus says that; “20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. [Matthew 18:20 KJV]

HEALING IS A DONE DEAL – Under the New Covenant, we are in a new day of supernatural accomplishment of Christ. Our view of God’s presence, perfect health and healing should not be based on how hard we have to pray and sweat to impress Him, so He will come into our midst and heal. We have already experience break through and open heaven. Remember, healing is a done deal, over 2,000 years ago, on Calvary cross. The Bible says; “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” [1 Peter 2:24 NIV] 

RECEIVE HEALING TODAY – Precious one; you have received the greatest breakthrough in Christ. From degeneration into regeneration, from aliens into royalty, from rejection into acceptance, from death into life, from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, from fear to love, from poverty into prosperity, from sorrow to His peace, from condemnation to justification and from sin to righteousness. You have already breakthrough into health, according in scripture. Faith plugs into the finish work to receive. God is not initiating a project in heaven as men puts on great ritualistic performances. You have already been healed of cancer, diabetes, lung weakness, HIV Aids, abdominal pain, stress, depression, autism and all its siblings. Christ took it away and gave you perfect health, dominion, power, prosperity and wholeness on every side. Rest in Jesus faith and allow yourself to be immersed in the ocean of His love. Most people think there are body organs warehouse in heaven, and if one is sick or had injured his body and needs a replacement of a body organ, we have to call special intercessors who knows how to break into God’s donor house, in lightning speed. In your born again spirit, you have a whole new world of a kingdom which do not lacks in anything. Healing is yours with your eyes on Jesus. It’s only received through faith. Satan do not hold your miracle in the skies, neither do witches sits on your wealth. You are complete in Christ Jesus. Breakthrough is all about knowing who we are and taking new territories for Christ, by establishing the kingdom where it has not been preached.

THE LOFTIEST BREAKTHROUGH – In my estimation, the loftiest form of breakthrough for the believer is what Apostle Paul prayed for the Ephesians in Chapter one and three of his epistle to the church; Having a revelation of who God is, what Jesus has done and capturing the hope of our calling, and the manifold blessings within the saint, through the escort of the Holy Spirit” should be our greatest pursuit. Paul writes; Ephesians 1:15-19 (KJV)15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. He prayed again for the Church… Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV)17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

God loves you and has lavished you with over the-top provision in all areas of your life. If we honestly desire to breakthrough from a life of toil to an effortless life of rest, I recommend to you the so good to be true gospel of Christ. Through the gospel, we will stop trying to breakthrough and enjoy or experience the fullness of God in our lives. This is a day of salvation, rest, prosperity and breakthrough, as it was declared by the Prophets and fulfilled in Christ Jesus [See Isaiah 53:1-8, Luke 4:17-19]. Christ has gone before us and won the victory for us; we are resting in His work, picking the booty of His victory. Hallelujah!

The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head. [Micah 2:13 AMP]

FALLEN FROM OR FALLEN INTO GRACE


Galatians 5:4-6 (MSG) I suspect you would never intend this, but this is what happens. When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Meanwhile we expectantly wait for a satisfying relationship with the Spirit. For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love

We have consciously or unconsciously denied ourselves of the hyper-effects of the finished work of Christ Jesus in our lives, one way or the other. The Legalistic attitudes and mindsets which rise-up-rgb-whitehas subtly crept into our lives, blocks the free-flowing river of grace in our relationship with God. Most of us has zero presence of peace and joy in our lives, as Christians. I don’t mean to condemn you for experiencing turmoil in your life, but want to encourage you that you can rise above the storms of life and live in 100% depressing free life. Peace and joy are a byproduct of the quality life of Christ. You can’t concoct it on your own ability, neither can you survive life through the temporal peace and happiness the world gives. You only have to yield your life to His. The bible says we have fallen from grace. To fall from grace does not mean the lost of salvation. It means we are operating and functioning from the platform of Law, to the neglect of the abiding life of Christ. Christianity is Christ… minus the self ability of men. Receiving what God has already accomplished through Christ Jesus, from the foundation of resting in His unmerited goodness is the fulcrum of Christianity. Anything outside of Christ is futile, no matter how religious and loftier it may look in our eyes or sound in our ears.

Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace [Gal 5:4 KJV] 

NO PAIN NO GAIN? In the field of sports and other arenas, the catch phrase for motivating people to peak performance or achievement is “no pain, no gain”Under this conception, competitive professionals such as athletes and artists are required to endure pain and pressure to achieve professional excellence. I am 110%  believer of hard work, where hard work is necessary. Hard work always pays off. The question is “Do we have to suffer through our own efforts in order to  gain the quality life of Christ? The No pain, no gain ( “No gain without pain”) or suffer to gain mantra, within the body of  Christ, expresses the belief in self occupation, self-dependence, self effort, will power, as a platform to reach the riches of God, in child-labourChrist Jesus. You takes a man’s ego away when you remove the platform of self, and established him on the solid foundation of Christ.

We hate to yield our life completely to His life, that the glory may not be of us but of His mercy and grace. Did you became anew in Christ through paining to gain or through rest in His grace? No pain, no gain mentality in the body of Christ is enshrined in legalistic mold of the believer. We rest in Christ Jesus to gain all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. We don’t have to suffer or sweat to impress God to act on our behalf. God has already set the table for a great banquet with man. All we need to do is to respond to His invitation to His manifold blessings. The Holy Spirit responds to the above question through Apostle Paul, in his Epistle to the Ephesians. He writes;

For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved ([a]delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.] (Ephesians 2:8-9 Amplified Bible AMP)

Almost every believer believes that, they did not work for their salvation in any form or shape. The scriptures emphasize that faith, grace, righteousness are all a gift package from God. You Photo Credit: Google imagebeing righteous, loved, accepted, forgiven, washed, healed, made holy, sanctified, prospered in all dimensions of life, is a pure gift of grace through faith. Sadly to say, most Christians start their pilgrim journey through rest in the finished work of Christ, and then along the line, they feel like they have been left on their own to work out their own salvation through self effort, in order to make it to their destination. You don’t have to go through hell before you get to heaven. You are to live a heaven on earth through Jesus Christ. Many will diligently pray to God for His strength, but at the back of their mind, they are saying; “God, meet me halfway and lets strike a deal”.

Christianity is not more of God, less of us. From start to end; Christianity is all about the total expression of Christ life, in the life of the believer. God doesn’t want you to meet Him halfway with sweat on your brow to prove to Him that you deserve it more. In Christ Jesus, He has made you complete so you can enjoy the liberty of the Christian life, effortlessly. (See Col 1:27, Col 2:10) The Bible says that we should continue our christian walk exactly as we received Jesus. It was by grace through faith and not of self works that got us into the many blessings of God. It is by faith through grace, from start to end. Apostle Paul once again sounds a clarion call to the believer;

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him” [Col 2:6″]

DO GOD HELP THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES? As beautiful and religiously as it may sound in our own religious ears; the popular catchphrase “God help those who help themselves” is a serious cancer in the body of Christ. It has radically awaken self-consciousness above Christ consciousness in the body of Christ. We talk and sing about Christ but we have200549504-001 become the “I generation“. In the first place Jesus did not come to the earth to help us solve our mess. We were completely lost and helpless in a mud of sin and condemnation, needing rescue. It is recorded of Jesus declaring our state of life and His agenda, in the gospels when Zacheaus experienced a radical change, through the super abundant grace of God; “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” [Luke 19:10] Salvation is therefore the work of the gift of grace [Christ] to the helpless. Friend God does not help those who help themselves, He helps the helpless. Those who have reach the end of their rope or come to the end of themselves; knowing that salvation is not in their riches, wealth, fame, deeds or spiritual affiliation but can only be found through rest in Christ. This is how one fall into grace!

Those who are trying  hard through the system of tithing, fasting, good works, prayer, giving, church attendance,  [which are all not bad in themselves] traditions of the church, legalistic rituals,  to prove themselves as righteous before God base on their works, renders the once and for all perfect sacrifice of Christ, ineffective in their lives. They have fallen from grace and living a frustrated life of self works. It’s a stink in God’s nostrils and a clanging cymbal in His ears. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. The Pharisees and the teachers of law in Jesus day are prime examples of work oriented citizens, for everything God. They were applauded by their neighbors for their zeal for God but they were like empty sepulcher before God. Jesus declares to me and you;

“For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven”. [Mathew 5:20]

Thank God, Jesus became  the answer to the far exceeding beauty of righteousness and life, to all who believe in Him. (See Romans 10:9-10) The new breed of believers can shout from the roof top to the deepest valleys that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. One can enter or experience the kingdom of God only through the righteousness by grace through faith in Christ, and not of the self work, self occupation, hypocritical form of righteousness which the Pharisees and the teachers of the law propagated for many years before Jesus arrival. It is centered on “what I do” to become, instead of believing in “what He has done” to experience His life, freely. Self righteousness is emptiness that leads to frustration and death. Friend, Christianity is Christ plus nothing. Let Him take the center stage of your life, as you surrender all your burdens to Him. He knows you cannot do it without Him. It is not just difficult without Him. Beloved, it is impossible without Christ. ( See John 15:1-6)  Listen to the Apostle of grace; 

19 For through the law I have died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ[a] 20 and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body,[b] I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. [Galatians 2:19-21 HCSB]

HE WAS MORALLY GOOD – I had the opportunity, sharing the gospel with a gentleman who was well mannered and cultured in every way. He was morally good. He was very helpful and kind gentleman to his community and family. He never drinks alcohol, curse, fight, or did any crazy stuff, from his youth. He was a gentleman! He looks into my eye and said something that shook the core of my being. He said; “I have never sin against anybody in my life, neither have I sin against God, so I am okay with God”. Meaning he didn’t need to be right with God through Jesus righteousness but on his own good works he believes he has achieved right standing with God. How sadly within our local Churches are filled with men and women who are more of themselves, playing religion. They have never heard the good news of Christ and are enslaved in self works. To cut a long story short…this man was diagnosed with cancer, and was declared never to survive. As I

I-can-helpstood on his dead bed, believing God for a miracle, I realized that he has reach the end of the rope, needing help from the Master. He saw the  emptiness of life without Christ. He gentle requested that I should lead him to Christ, and just few days after confessing Jesus as His Lord and Savior, He died as a righteous man. His righteousness was not based on His moral goodness or church affiliation. He never had the chance to joining any Church organisation. He only cried out onto the Lord and He was saved from the original sin of Adam. (See Romans 5:12)

Paul refutes the ideology of those who believe in grace for the start and their own strength to reach the finish line, with these profound words. He writes; “Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for ChristYea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: [Philippians 3:4-9  KJV ]

If righteousness is based on the flesh, Paul lists all his qualifications before our eyes. In terms of the law… He was a super-duper legalistic man but when he encountered the righteousness through faith, he counted all things as lost for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus. Are you so glued to a person, a religious activity, and yet you find no peace and liberty in your soul? Just ask Christ to open your eyes to the truth of the gospel, that you might be freed from the prison of self in order to enjoy the liberty of His life. Those who do not set aside the grace of God in their Christian life are the ones who bear the radical fruits of righteousness. Remember, we are created unto good works but our position with God is not measured by our good deeds as means to acceptance before God. My prayer for you my friend, is rooted in Philippians 1:11  (AMP) May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and right doing) which come through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), to the honor and praise of God [[a]that His glory may be both manifested and recognized].

LET US PRAY – Thank you Jesus for swapping places with me, that I can freely share in your life. Father God, I believe that in Christ Jesus I have right standing with you, loved, acceptedPhoto Credit: synecticsworld.com, sanctified, made holy, forgiven, justified, born from innocence, blessed with peace, joy prosperity, anointing, favor, wisdom, and total wholeness in Christ. Holy Spirit, you are the light of revelation and understanding. You are guiding my feet on firm foundation in Christ finished work. I refuse to bow to the subtle deceptions of self effort and yield in all aspect of my life into who I am in Christ Jesus. Amen!!

Thank you so much precious one, for taking the time to read, like, comment and re-blogged, to help spread the good news of God’s amazing love. Peace and love to you!

WHAT DOES GOD SEE WHEN HE LOOK AT YOU? PT 2


She lifted her hands with tears flowing like a river in her eyes. Her belly is filled with uncertainty, before Her God. She is has rehearsed every word she will carefully and Prayerfearfully speak to her God, in her sin conscious state. She cried with pity and weakness in her voice; “Oh Lord I am a sinner saved by grace; have mercy on me”. The weight of her sin filled soul cast a gloom over her righteous heart. Though she has been redeemed, washed, perfected and made whole by the once and for all sacrifice of Christ, she still see herself as the worst of sinner she was, twenty years ago. Alas, she knew not of how highly she is regarded by her Father in heave. Her sad countenance was washed away by the echoes of His tender voice. He looked through her dimmed eye into the core of her inner being, and whispered against her doubts the living word that shook her wrong belief; “You are mine and I am your”.

Are we sinners saved by grace or we were once sinners, but are now made righteous through God’s gift of grace through faith?

It’s either you are righteous before God or you are a sinner. You cannot be both. Most Christians has spiritual bipolar syndrome…They see themselves as righteous and confident before God when they act right and run into their shells of guilt and sin consciousness, when they fail in their walk with God. The lack of proper understanding of our righteous position in Christ Jesus has caused a lot in the body of Christ to be flatly weakened with fear and all kinds moral vices. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 (AMP)21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [[a]endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness]. The Holman Christian Standard Bible renders 2 Corinthians 5:21 this way; “ He made the One who did not know sin to be sin[a] for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him“. Almost every Christian believes that Jesus was made sin for us but not all Christians believe in we becoming the righteousness of God in Him. We cannot pick and chose or follow blindly. The truth is what sets us free. Do you see yourself as the righteousness of God in Christ, before God or you see yourself as disgusting, shameful sinner, working your way to reach a righteousness goal.? Righteousness is not an exit goal my friend. Righteousness is a departure goal.

Strong concordance of Greek words defines righteousness from the root word dikaiosýnē (from 1349 /díkē, “a judicial verdict”) – properly, judicial approval (the verdict of approval); in the NT, the approval of God (“divine approval”). 1343 /dikaiosýnē (“the approvalof God”) refers to what is deemed right by the Lord (after His examination), i.e. what is approved in His eyes.

Jesus passed the demands of heavens judicial system to perfection when He was hanged on the tree. It is on the basis on His innocence, we are deemed right and approved in God’s eyes. When God look at me and you, He is not seeing sinners, He sees a reflection of Himself. Friend, there is now no condemnation for me and you, in Christ Jesus. But McDaniels; “I am not doing enough to mantain my position”. To be righteous is not right doing. Christianity is not a religion which focuses on obedience to rules, laws or right doing, for one to be qualified as righteous. Righteousness is a free gift of God through the obedience of the faith, which produces right doing. The just shall live by faith and not works of the law. Do you see the difference?  There are some unbelievers who do charitable acts and helps society in many ways. Thepeace-key-703x201 question is, does their good works justify them as righteous before God? Nope!  One is a sinner not because he or she sins; one is a sinner because one has not believed in the finished work of Christ, to be justified from the original sin of Adam, which produces condemnation of death. In the same token, one is righteous because he or she has received the new birth through the sacrificial act of Jesus Christ and have been translated from death to life. Apostle Paul paints a beautiful picture of our righteous position in Christ Jesus in his epistle to the Romans. He writes;

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if by the one man’s trespass the many died, how much more have the grace of God and the gift overflowed to the many by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ16 And the gift is not like the one man’s sin, because from one sin came the judgment, resulting in condemnation, but from many trespasses came the gift, resulting in justification.[a] 17 Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. 18 So then, as through one trespass there is condemnation for everyone, so also through one righteous act there is life-giving justification[b] for everyone. 19 For just as through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so also through the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. [Romans 5:15-19 HCSB]

DESTINED TO REIGN – Many died effortlessly by the trespass of one man’s [Adam]. Therefore sin can be defined as missing an inheritance in God. The original sin Righteous-To-Reignchanged our spiritual position and affected the way we function as God’s children. We were dead and operated form a wrong platform of self, producing death, guilt, shame, poverty, lack, evil, rejection, loneliness and all its siblings. Against this background, Jesus came on earth through His act of obedience in meeting the demands of God and the price we could not pay, to restore us to the righteous position, as God intended. Through the overflowing, super abundant, over the top love and the gift of righteousness to those who trust in Him, we shall reign in life through Jesus.

If death reigned over mankind without effort, you have to reign in power, authority, prosperity, dominion and fruitfulness in all spheres of life. You carry the very life of God to shine, my friend. The more you look into the eyes of Christ Jesus and believes that He is your righteousness, radical fruit of righteousness becomes the testament of your life. God did not made us righteous so that we can go to heaven. He made us right so that we can freely partake of His life, on this side of life. Just as He is so are we…We can stand before Satan and his cohorts without fear or guilt. We have become masters over principalities and powers. Death has no more dominion over us…because we are under the influence of the free gift of righteousness (faith base life) and not on the basis of the law (self effort). Apostle Paul’s profound question, thousands of years ago, still echoes in this dispensation. He boldly asks….

Romans 5:17 Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ

WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD, NOT WAR – God i s not hunting you down with a mega score-book in His hands, to vent His displeasure, according to your deeds. Honestly, God is not mad at you, neither is He angry with you for whatever reasons. Friend, Let this truth I am about to share with you smash into pieces all your fears and the confusion you’ve been nursing over the years. Are you running from God because you think He is mad and at war with you? Today, there are millions of believersJohnny Depp (center) who are hooked to a wrong belief that God has unleashed sicknesses, failure, poverty and pain to discipline them or to test them of their faithfulness to Him. Is the devil on vacation? Does God work for the devil? Don’t you know my friend that every good and perfect gift comes from your daddy in heaven. I doubt you will give your kids stones if they ask for bread. I doubt you will you take them to their school parking lot and let all the pupil walk over him, because you want to test his or her loyalty to you, as a father.

Here is the simple but powerful truth that can set you free; THE WAR IS OVER!! You are not hearing the good news if your heart is not full of gladness and freedom that the gospel offers. The good news is not about the bad news that God is angry with you, America, your family, friends and everything around us. The good-news infuses hope to a hopeless world. It paints a picture of enmity at the back of the cross, but on the front of the cross, its paints a glorious picture of a God whose arms are wide open to receive the most hardened sinner and the condemned saint into love. Read carefully and prayerfully; the annunciation of the birth of Jesus Christ to the poor shepherds in Luke gospels and unlock this powerful truth….

Luke 2:9-11 (HCSB)Then an angel of the Lord stood before[a] them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.[b] 10 But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people:[c] 11 Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.

This might be too good to be true for you. God’s news is simple and fantastic. The Angels proclaimed the favorable heart of God towards humanity in the face of Christ Jesus. God was saying; “I was angry with you but now because of my Son, the war is over and I am satisfied, content, and take pleasure in you”. Your Bible says it this way;

” Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors! [Luke 2:14 HCSB].

This is not peace between one another, its peace between God and man. The curtain of separation is broken. The door of eternal forgiveness is available to connect with your heavenly Father. Isaiah, the prophets anticipates the heartbeat of God through the new covenant. God declares through His servant that; “I was angry for a moment and hid my face from you; but with everlasting grace I will have compassion on you,” says ADONAI your Redeemer” [Isaiah 54:8 CJB]. There is nothing you can do on this earth to discredit you from the favor of God. You are loved and accepted. Stop hiding and lets His peace permeate your life. Photo Credit: Google imageUnderstand this my friend; “being favored and had peace with God through Christ Jesus does not mean we are all saved”. Yes, the price is paid in full, yet not everybody who will receive this gift. Both the sinner and the saint had their debts cancelled….it is through this payment that God’s anger has ceased. Apostle Paul opens Romans chapter 5 to his readers who were still controlled by the legalistic mentality of you do good you get good and you do bad you get bad treatment from God. We call it karma, today. In God’s covenant of grace; ‘he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities [Psalm 103:10]   Why?

Romans 5:1-2 (HCSB)Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.We have also obtained access through Him by faith[b] into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.

You can believe God for all the precious promises in Christ Jesus because we have obtained (obtain is in the past tense) access through Him (Christ) by faith, according toPhoto Credit: ICGC the above scripture. Because we have been declared righteous (declared is in the past tense) by faith…we have peace with God. We have good rapport with God on the basis of Christ, into this grace (new position) in which we stand. We stand in grace grounds, unmoved by sins plea nor the inadequacies of our life. You can look yourself in the mirror and declare; “I am the righteousness of god through Christ Jesus” “I am born of God to reign and conquer life with the quality life of Christ”. Be awake to your righteous position in Christ and let not sin [Satan] control your destiny. Many has crept into the Church of Jesus Christ awaken the conscience of the people of God to self-righteousness, self-esteem, through self-help mantras of the old covenant system. Christianity is all about Christ, and He must be preached until He takes the center place in our lives. Paul shouts it out from the roof top, in his letter to the Church at Corinth, for the believers to be awaken to the righteousness which is through faith in Christ Jesus, and not-self occupation.

1 Corinthians 15:34 (KJV) Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

We can experience a revolution of our righteous position and not be full of ourselves; a life dominated by self effort, guilt, shame, fear, emptiness, poverty, sickness and all the negative influence of our culture as we get soaked in the grace gospel. Graceless message places more emphasis on self occupation instead of Christ. Find preachers and authors who unveil to you of who God is and who you are in Him. The change will be something you will thank God for, all the rest of your life. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing the good news about Christ. The emphasis is on the message about Jesus finished work. That is what ignites faith in a believer to live victoriously. So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ. ]Romans 10:17 HCSB]

 So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. [Romans 10:17 NLT]

Friend, you are always seen by your Father in heave as His covenant child. Meditate on these truths and see it transformed your life radically. Peace and favor is your portion in Christ.

WHAT DOES GOD SEE WHEN HE LOOK AT YOU? Pt. 1


photo Credit: Google imageImagine a world filled with people who are living under the influence of innocence, because they are born from the innocence of God. They have no consciousness of guilt, sin, shame and condemnation. They only function from the core of their perfect nature in God. I don’t really know what you think about yourself when you look God in the face. Your opinion of God towards you and others is the sum total of your life story…it practically defines your belief system. The issues of life flow from our belief system. Wether we fall or stand, its hinges on what we believe. Remember, wrong belief system always leads to wrong behavior. I trust that you will develop new foundations for your feet today, to usher you into freedom and success, all the days of your life. Amen!

MY BELIEF WAS MY PRISON – I became born again in my late teen with a couple of friends, in a rough neighborhood of Ghana – Africa. We were so on fire for God in every way possible, without apology. I almost served in every department of the Church, for wrong reasons. I knew I was genuinely in love with God but what I didn’t know was if He loved me with high-octane passion, just like the way I did loved Him. I surely knew I was in love with Him more than He

Photo Credit: Google image did! What was wrong, McDaniels? I was living passionately for God on the outside, but was secretly dying slowly on the inside with the fear of not pleasing Him. I read a text of scripture from the book of Hebrews, which says without faith one cannot please God. That really spoiled my Christian honeymoon for years. I knew back then that you will need the giant faith of Elijah, Morris Cerrullo or Billy Graham, to be well pleasing to the Lord. I never felt the real joy of Christianity, I knew my prayers were not breaking through the glass ceiling or will always fall into the death ears of God. Can you believe it? I was afraid I may end up in hell, with all my spirituality. Wanting to please the Lord when He looks at me, I started working hard for the Lord…daily dose of scripture memorization, evangelism, extreme fasting and self denials, and what have you, just to motivate Him to change His mind of displeasure towards me. I was buying my way to acceptance through works. Christianity is a life of “I am” not “I need to become”. I will explain this statement later, but friend I want you to tattooed this profound truth into your heart.

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

YOU ARE A DELIGHT TO GOD – There is a system of belief which says; one need to have a giant faith or grow in the depths of their faith in order to please God. This wrong assertion or belief has rob the masses of the confidence to approach God, as dearly beloved.  Many has the feeling that until they graduate or matured into that state of faith mastery through their own effort, it will be impossible for them to please God. They go through long periods of fasting, extreme self denials and the practice of Photo Credit: smallbiztrends.comcopying people they consider as men of faith. They travel from one county to the other, looking for a man of God to lay hands on them for the imputation of faith, so they can please the Lord in their walk with Him. There is nothing wrong for a man of God to pray for you but how your Father in heaven thinks concerning you, does not depends on who lays his or her hands on you. First of all, those who do not please God in their hearts are not those who has placed their trust in Him. Do you believe that God exists and is persuaded in your heart that you are born from above?

What is faith in the first place? I love this simple definition of faith; “Faith is having a good opinion about God”. This makes it so simple for me. When you need faith, you don’t have to look at yourself to produce faith. You just need to look at God to activate the measure of Himself in your born again spirit your to have a good opinion of Him. And true enough, in times when you are low in faith, it’s because your opinion of God at the time needs adjusting”.

WHAT DO I MEAN BY THE MEASURE OF HIMSELF? Your Bible says that;“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3) This is so beautiful! The new creation man has being dealt with the measure of faith. My friend when God gave you the measure of faith, how much faith do you think God gave to you? Are you thinking, maybe God gave you a smaller version of faith than He dealt with everyone else? The measure of faith which you received caused you to believe in Jesus Christ as your savior. It is more than enough from start to the end. It is through this faith you walk over the head of the cobra and every form of the enemies attack. hallelujah!

The faith of Jesus Christ is tabernacles in your heart when you made Him the Lord of your life. This faith is not a product of self effort, it is a gift from GOD that allows you to walk in alignment with Him. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” The verse says; grace and faith ‘is the gift of God’. You already have  the faith that overcomes the world. Those who overcome the world are the people who believePhoto Credit: Google image in Jesus Christ. It is one thing to have faith and another thing to develop or to put into use the free gift of faith. Develop your faith by the persuasion of the word of God. The Bible says that; “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”(Romans 10:17) The more you set your heart to be immersed into His word of His grace, which is able to build you up, the more you begin to think like Him and speak like Him in your daily life.

One of the ways I control every situation in my life is to allow the Holy Spirit to escort me to the banqueting house of Christ Jesus and let Him speak tenderly to my heart about how He feels towards me in my predicament. His words of life resonates with His life in me to rise above the evil occasion, effortlessly. What if God finds fault with me? Your God is not a fault finder, the devil is. Even in our mistakes, He leads us to the path of righteousness for his name sake. He will not throw tantrums and lost breath for our actions. He always point us to who we are in Him. You are created to function like God; a faith being. God is not passive…He spoke the world into existence. He did not speak problems into existence. Don’t tell God about your problems, tell your problems and situations about your God. This is how we are wired to function; in authority and power.

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Without faith it is impossible to please God, but with His faith in you, He breath over you with delight. To be pleasing in the Greek is the word euaresteo (pronounced yoo-ar-es-teh’-o) which means to be well pleased with a thing, having pleased or to gratify entirely. It pleased the Lord to give you the measure of Himself, so that He can walk with you in divine romance. The measure of the faith of the people (for instance preachers or faith healers) you admire is not bigger than the measure of your faith in your born again spirit. The difference is that, they have learned to release the supernatural ability of faith in God, that yields results. Friend your God is936750_473999902670979_334376063_n not a respecter of persons!! Remember, you have not been given the measure of faith to force God into action. Your faith only appropriates what God has already done through Christ Jesus. The desire of the human heart to invent its own route to reach God always leads to unfulfilled frustration and ill acceptance. The reason many Christians do not feel well pleasing to the Lord. They are always accused by Satan of their below standard faith, no matter how much they try to walk in faith. Out of desperation and rejection in their soul…they can’t talk to their daddy in heaven, in prayer. Usually, they go through prayer mediators to pray on their behalf to God. The measure of faith God gave to you, whether its like the size of a mustard seed or papaya seed; it’s all you need to stand before the devil without fear and relate with your God, without timidity or shame.

AN ACCOMPLISHED TRUTH – Friend you can be set free from the bondage of ill acceptance. My life is a testimony of a man being set free from the religious bondage of a wrong believe system to tell you that when God look at you He is not disgusted in your walk with Him. According to His good pleasure, He predestined you into adoption by accepting us into the beloved. Scripture says that; Ephesians 1:4-6 (KJV) According as he hath chosen us [past tense] in him before the foundation of Photo Credit: Google Imagathe world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. I love the Andrew Wommack commentary on Ephesians 1:6; “The Greek word translated here “accepted in the beloved” is the exact same word rendered “highly favoured” in Luke 1:28. “And the angel [Gabriel] came in unto her, and said, ‘Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee [Mary]: blessed art thou among women” (brackets mine). These are the only two times this word is used in the New Testament.

Therefore, being “accepted in the beloved” means you are “highly favoured” of God! Look your face in the mirror and tell your soul that your are highly favored, loved and accepted in the beloved. [Jesus Christ]  Adam, the first man, was never in a try and error project to become. He was functioning from who he was until he fell from his original position. Christianity is a life of I am not I need to become. Most Christians are trying to do things ( trying live holy, read the Word, tithe, fast, etc.) to make themselves acceptable to God instead of resting in the beloved to let His life flow freely in us. You are well pleasing to God, because of Christ. Believe and see it transformed your life.

YOUR ANSWER IS YOUR STORY


What does God see when He look at me?

For one to profess to be a Christian then he or she has experienced the new birth through Christ Jesus. Christianity and liberty are like swimming in a pool and feeling completely wet. For one to be in a swimming pool and not experience wetness is out of the ordinary and insane. Walking in the power of liberty is the normal Christian life. Sadly to say, there are a host of Christians who are still swimming in the ocean of Christianity, yet  have not learned to experience the freedom of God’s boundless waters of grace. They are dry in sin, religion, legalism,condemnation, shame, depression, weakness, sin consciousness and defeat in all circles of life. They have wrong opinion about God and see terror when they look God in the eye. They love God genuinely but they are not sure if God loves them enough to freely prosper them regardless of their level of performance!

I have personally listened to many preachers, preach with such conviction and passion, echoing their anger through the aisles of the church sanctuary, Sunday after Sunday, of how disappointing God is about His Church. Sometimes they go on to say that; “He is even surprised about the actions of His people”. These services always ends with searching of your heart for sins, (sins of omission and commission) mourning and weeping before the altar, pleading with God to be content with His children one more time. Most people will go through this prayer bath and still unsure if God is satisfied about their life. Their belief system is wrong, so no amount of prayer can change the way they see themselves through the eyes of God. How my heart bleeds with pain, seeing freed people enslaved in the doctrine of men, which has no power for life. God is ‘shockprised’ and disappointed?

When God look at you what does He see my friend? You may have started so well in your Christian pilgrim but along the line you abused your wife, left home, joined the wrong crowd, turned your back against the church, committed adultery, and you are now living in secrecy? What if I had the red flag waving on my blue skies confirming to the writing on the walls of my heart not to move from town A to town B but I pushed myself through in disobedience to the voice of God, and moved to a new town or city and opened up a booming company, which is now skidding through the ice?

Beloved, Is God looking at a disgusting, shameful, disobedient, stubborn child, who is a disgrace to the kingdom or His mercy and love erases all our negative behaviors as far as the east is from the west? The way we think God see us through our mess, our best times, and the in-between forms the platform of our belief system, which affects the way we function as children of God. Take the time and  ponder over this question…there is good news for all who are stuck in the mud of confusion and loneliness, about what God see when He look at us. There is hope and shelter in the eyes of the Master. Turn your eyes away from the beat-down life and look to Jesus. There is forgiveness, love and wholeness for you!!

When God look at (insert your name)……. He see’s (write His thoughts about you)……..

     I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Isaiah 43:25 KJV

  – McDaniels Gyamfi

 

YOU BELONG


For an item to be declared as missing, then there is an owner. For someone to be said to be missing, then he or she belongs. You definitely belongs.

Of whom do I belong ?

You belongs to the creator of heaven and earth. Where-ever you are today (whether in the valley of addiction) will never changed His mind towards you. He is motivated by an unusual love to find you and bring you home. Because you belongs to a Father who created you in His image and likeness. Every child enslaver knows too well that their captives belongs to a family or a parent that dearly loves them and will do whatever in their capacity to free their child from the claws of slavery. Satan is a slave master, who has mastered so well in brained-washing the masses with orphaned mentality and an outcast syndrome. The orphan mentality says; “I have nobody” “I am on my own in a lonely island, sold to slavery” “God is mad at me and life has nothing good for me”.

THE SAINT AND THE SINNER – The only difference between the guy at the corner of the street who has become a junkie and the guy who enters into the store front Church, with freedom in his eyes is an identity issue. Lost of identity is not lost of ownership…lost of identity is lost of birthright. Once you lose your identity, you lose the platform to share in the glorious benefits of a relationship built on mutual love and acceptance. The saints are people who have been sanctified from a heart and conscience once controlled by death, unto life eternal. Their heart and affection resonates with their Father in heaven. They have found shelter in the city of righteousness.  Satan may have distracted you of who you really are to God: “He has probably told you a lie that; “God is angry with you” “You are not worthy and valuable in God’s sight” or “God has distance Himself from you and all that”. This is the good news; For God so loved the world (See John 3:16) Why should God had to love the world when we were all a mess? He loved us because we belongs to Him and the only way to bring us back into that mutual relationship is to surrender His own life in our place, as a propitiation. Through Christ Jesus many has come home and are enjoying free breakfast with their daddy whiles millions still gropes in the dark with empty stomach, like sheep’s without shepherd. You may have sold your soul to Satan and you serve him with movies_les_miserable_hugh_jackman_anne_hathaway_1passion but I must confess to you that Satan is a deceptive, illegal owner. Your real father and rightful place of belonging is God. You belongs to Him and He is coming after you with a heartbeat. Yes! He is here talking to you through this blog.

Whenever I looked into the eyes of a fellow human being, all I see is someone who belongs to a being who dearly loved them so much that He smiles on them. He is happy about His creation. I do not mean to say everybody is saved. You can belong to a God who loves you and yet miss the chance to enjoy His love and how He feels about you. It is through Christ Jesus that we walk back into the loving arms of our loving Father without any sense of fear. How you get lost and how many years you have been missing is not the worries of God. His heart is only after you. Yes! His heart of love is after you. Because you belong to Him. What should have been your response, if you knew for all these years that God is not mad about your secret sins and addiction, but truly loves you to the core, even in your foolishness? Will you be motivated by His love to continue in slavery and the emptiness or you will run to Him and enjoy Him. God does not need millions of worshipers at every Sunday to worship Him like slaves so that He can bless us. No, He wants us to enjoy Him freely…this satisfaction from God does not hinge on our obedience or performance. You don’t have to do too well before you receive healing or receive your basic needs. God is not like a Father who only offers the best for his children because they serve him well. The more we enjoy God as our father, the more we are empowered to do greater works which puts smiles on our faces. Your greater works makes you fulfilled. It is not what you do that makes God happy or fulfilled. Friend, God is already happy, fulfilled and complete. Alleluia!

THOSE WHO BELONGS, BELIEVES – When Jesus said we should not worry about tomorrow, He really meant it. He was not playing with words my friend. He was talking about meeting our basic needs in life. He was talking about things that drives people who walks in unbelief, too crazy. What will I eat? What will my kids wear? Where will I sleep? Why am I here? Does God has a plan for my life?. What?? Where?? How?? Who?? are questions which has been already answered by your Father in heaven through the finished work of Christ. In Christ Jesus, you are completely complete and wholly whole. You lacks nothing! Because you belong to a God who cares about every detail of your life; you can trust Him to meet all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. When Jesus said; “Are you not worth than the birds of the sky”. He did said that with you and I in His mind. He was saying, these birds has value but there is nothing that resonates my being than yourself. He was spark-aleadershipwisdom.blogspot.comsaying; “You mean too much to me than anything and I will always express my love to you, just as a father looks into the eyes of his new-born child and sees value. What have I done to be worth anything much? Your total life is a life of favor. You are an excellent icon of a living God…your worth is not determined by your performance nor your background. Your worth is determined by your identity with God as a son or a daughter through Christ Jesus. Just as Jesus is well pleased in the eyes of His Father as beloved, so are we in this world. It is recorded in Paul’s epistle to the Ephesian, Chapter one verse six; “ to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved”

The good, the bad and the ugly parents of this evil world, have one thing in common. There are few who do not care about their kids but the desire to see our kids have their basic needs is a common trait of most parents. What makes us think we are better parents and so caring than God? God is faithful and He will never fail a promise. You don’t have to do right to expect right from God. You have to always expect right treatment from God. What ails you? Cast it upon the Lord, for He cares.

Matthew 6:25-32 (AMP) 25 Therefore I tell you, stop being [a]perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the [b]span of his life? 28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and [c]learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin. 29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his [d]magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear? 32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.

OH, THE DETAILER – Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Friend, God knows every detail of your thoughts. He is not looking into your worried heart to condemn you or makes you feel miserable. He wants you to know that He holds they keys to the true fulfillment of your life. Even the number photo credit: google imagesof the hairs on your head is well counted. If He knows this detail, what makes you think He did not care about your health, peace, finances, ministry, family, job, etc. Your thoughts are His concern; He is saying; “you are too precious to be deteriorate with anxiety…hand it to me”. He is saying; “don’t bottled up in fear and despair”. Whether you are happy that you belong or feels like life is throwing curve balls on you, His greatest plan is that you will stay in the persuasion of His good opinion about you. His opinion is that;”Your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all, so don’t worry  about a thing”. You can’t tell a friend to trust you and not worry about his rent if you don’t have what it takes. It is only your God who has ever made such a bold statement. He is able to do according as He has said if and only you will rest in Him. He is not having a mental assent of the desires of your heart. He always goes the extra mile to meet your needs just as He keeps feeding the birds of the sky; who neither sow nor reap into barns. You don’t belong to your circumstances nor the prison of your past. You belongs to a great King, who is so caring to forgive and so loving to wipe away the old slate. You are not a slave neither are you a servant; you are the son and daughter of the creator of heaven and earth. That feels so good and liberating; to know that you are dearly loved, highly favored and accepted by your heaven father with a heartbeat. Glory hallelujah!!

LETS PRAY

“Thank you so much, Father God. You have not disowned me and neither are You angry with me. Your Holy Spirit has brought me to your banqueting house and your banner over me is love. I boldly confess today that I am not an orphan but a child of destiny. I willingly come home to explore the depths of your great love and the riches of your inheritance, in Christ Jesus. I am free from slavery and the power of sin which hinders so easily, in Jesus name””. Amen!!

‘World Trade Center cross’ fight continues as atheist group appeals ruling


Gravity of Grace Note: The Church has been silent for far too long, sitting on the fence. We shouldn’t assume or presume that, we can just parade ourselves in the four walls of the Church building, singing holy songs and the life we so want and cherish for our communities and nation, will happen automatically. Our voices needs to be heard, from the mountain top to the lowest valleys of society. Evil men are parading their evil ideologies and agenda, dictating the way we think and function. Their aim is to silence the Lordship of Christ. This is just one example of what the devil is doing as reported by Todays News           

The "WTC cross" is the subject of a debate that's going back to court Thursday.

The “WTC cross” is the subject of a debate that’s going back to court Thursday. Is it a religious symbol or piece of history? A controversy over a cross-shaped steel beam found in the World Trade Center rubble continues to rage.

A group called American Atheists will argue before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday that the cross does not belong in the private 9/11 museum, which will open on property leased from the government.

American Atheists filed a lawsuit in July 2011 aiming to prevent the WTC cross from being displayed in the museum, but federal judge Deborah Batts of the Southern District of New York ruled last year that the cross and the museum helped “demonstrate how those at Ground Zero coped with the devastation they witnessed.” American Atheists is now appealing that decision.

“It’s necessary to fight this because this is inequality on government property,” American Atheists president David Silverman told TODAY.

Is it a religious artifact or piece of history? A court may decide. 

wtcIn the wreckage of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, construction worker Frank Silecchia discovered the cross-shaped 17-foot-tall, 4,000-pound steel beam. Silecchia told TODAY that the cross comforted him, and it soon became a rallying point for first responders.

“I was already working 12 hours. I was quite weary and the cross comforted me,” Silecchia said. the faith that was crushed on 9/11.” “If you take the religion away from the cross, you’ve got scrap metal,” Silverman said. “Just like all the other scrap metal that fell on the cross. The only reason that this cross is special is because it is religious.” 

The National 9/11 Memorial and Museum is set to open in May.

“To have a piece of the history that provided some spirituality, some faith, some respite in the midst of all this, if we didn’t have that we really wouldn’t be telling the story as it happened,” museum president and CEO Joseph Daniels told TODAY’s Katy Tur.

GOD’S UNDESERVED GOODNESS


Photo Credit: www.neoseeker.comDo you know that every parent; whether saved or unsaved, poor or rich, black or white, all shares a common DNA or trait (Love DNA) of their creator to affectionately love  and give to their children, irrespective of their performance or behavior. What gives most parents the audacity to think that their love for their kids is greater than the love of God towards them? Man’s love is questionable, due to our imperfections, but God’s love is daily loaded with glorious benefits, which never fails.

NOW WORD: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35

IT IS ONE THING TO KNOW THAT GOD IS LOVE AND ANOTHER THING TO BELIEVE IN HIS LOVE FOR US – A belief system which points people to how good God is and yet how inaccessible is His goodness, always leads to wrong opinion and persuasion in our hearts towards God, which limits most Christians from experiencing the goodness of God. Most parents love their children regardless of their children’s behavior. Yet many parents thinks they are more loving than God. That is really interesting… they have been taught that Sure God loves you, but He’s also mad at you”. So you better watch yourself.” They talks about the love of God with strong conditions; it is based entirely on your good behavior and perfect score in religious adherence. Do you believe my friend that God loves you and wants to lavish you with His goodness, without sweat? I grew up loving God so deeply in all of my actions as a teenager, but I had this thing going on in my mind; “God is love and He is willing to bestow His goodness on others but as far as I was concerned, I never thought of being qualified to share in His goodness” My focus was heaven’s bliss, an earthly pain. (A destination goal) I would have been still locked up in the bondage of ignorance had God not shine His light on my heart. He said He is Love and you got to believe!!

Photo Credit: www.redbubble.comWhat makes you think that your love for your kids or your parents love for you is greater than the love of God towards you?  Hear the voice of the altogether lovely Jesus when He reveals the heart of the Father;  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! (Matthew 7:11) Isn’t it beautiful to know that you have earthly parents who cares about you and are passionate about your future? How awesome will it be if you can comprehend the length, the width, the deaths and how unfailing is the loving-kindness of your heavenly father. His love for you is irresistible, relentless and everlastingly unchangeable. He loves you with passion and He is committed to His promise to love you to the end, fulfilling every promise, without any interference. He assures us through the Prophet Isaiah… Isaiah 54:10 “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills depart, his unfailing love for you will not be removed.”

GOD’S LOVE WAS REVEALED IN IT’S PEAK AT CALVARY – In our very state depravity, we deserved to have die in sin but undeservingly He poured forth the goodness of His forgiveness through the obedience of His Son Jesus Christ, for all humanity (See John 3:16). Friend, remember He did love you whiles you were still a sinner, sinning without control. The Just God hates sin; the falling man couldn’t fulfill the high standard of His holiness and righteousness, but out of His relentless love Photo Credit: Google imagefor us, He step down from heaven and swap place with us, to receive the full wrath of God, that we might stand before God without guilt and shame. What did sinful men do to merit this love? Absolutely nothing! He did not wait for us to clean our own mess or go back to Eden on our own to have a fresh start with Him.

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) I love the part which says; “much more then”. Are you enjoying the much more of His goodness through grace in Christ, instead of works to appropriate His precious promises?  Romans 5:9-10 (NKJV) Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

As condemned citizens of this world, we were saved from God’s wrath through the finished work of Christ. Now that we are covenant children of grace, there is a much more of God’s life through Christ, we need to explore. We were justified by the blood from sin through His love, and we are being saved from every form of evil on this side of life, through the quality life of His Son, in our born again spirit. Are you enjoying the much more of His life of peace, joy, prosperity, health, boldness and wholeness through faith? Do not be entangled in the form of doctrine which says; “God is mad at you”. God is not in mood swing precious one. Be happy for you are in His plans, no matter your condition. (I do not urge you to continue to walk in sin…yet in your sins God’s love is still the same. The unfortunate thing is that, sin blinds us from enjoying His goodness)

 STOP TRYING AND RECEIVE – Friend, the good news is love at its best, independent of our human effort for the new creation believer. It is time for the Church of Jesus Christ to stop trying  to qualify for such an awesome love which emanates out from the very nature of His being, without our meritorious acts or deeds? God is not just a giver of Photo Credit: www.marcenangel.comlove. He is love – It is in His nature to love, and it should be the nature of the new creation believer to savor and enjoy His love, which last for a lifetime. He love to bless, prosper, protect, shields, forgive, favor, promote and let all of His goodness to be with you all the days of your life. Don’t be robbed of such a privilege to walk with a being whose love is not based on your performance.

I have personally observed folks in the body of Christ, even in their sick-bed they want to use fasting as motivation tool to compel God to work on their behalf. Don’t get me wrong; fasting is good but you don’t fast to earn your way into God’s blessing. Fasting helps you to control the carnal impulse of the flesh so that you can align your thoughts and emotions with His word, for faith to be activated in response to His good will. Fasting do helps the believer, but does not help God in any way. Do You desire wholeness?

COMPLETELLY ROBBED – We have been completely robbed of the freedom to enjoy a personal God who loves us freely. Enough is enough… break free from this religious cancer of self effort, which is sucking life from millions of believers. Sharing this living message with a young woman; she called me recently and told me of how she felt so personal with God, speaking to Him about small details of His life.  (She talk to God about her hair) Yes! God cares about every details of your life, including your very hair. “I have never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love and more love! (Jeremiah 31:3b MSG) . Expect good instead of the evil which so

permeate the mind of most of us. Are you dealing with guilt, loss, shame, sickness or a very delicate issue and you feel like it not going to end for your good. Let God’s love influence your persuasion and see Him turn the tables for your favor. It is His nature to defend, heal and restore justice to His own. Glory alleluia!!

EARTHLY LOVE – Earthly or human love is established on the platform of human conditions but divine love is spontaneous action, out of the fullness of Gods nature to love. God does not love you because of the good deeds you exhibited and neither does He love you less, because of your inadequacies. He loves you because He is love!! That is the difference between His love and that of men. If your parents did not treat you right growing up and it has cast a shadow on how you see God, you can break free from mental prison to experience a love greater than the love of man. Let this truth sink deep into your heart;  “I have never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love and more love! (Jeremiah 31:3b MSG) 

16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. (1 John 4:16-18 NAS)

THE GREATEST DELIVERANCE MINISTER IS LOVE –  Love (God-consciousness) casts out the torment of fear out of the hearts of the most miserable, and despaired souls when one allow Him to flood his hearts with the liquid presence of His favor. Friend, today let faith arise in your heart as you become conscious of His love for you to see you healed, restored and positioned on the solid rock of His righteousness. All the men and women, who stood face to face with adversity and laugh through their storms to the complete shock of their enemies, were men and women who were flowing deep in the ocean of His love. Some were burned on the stakes and yet they keptPhoto Credit: Google image

praising God without fear of death.  Whether you are in jail or at the end of your rope reading this write-up, be encouraged that God is not in mood swing about His good plan for your life. He always makes all things beautiful by working our mess into a message. Scripture says that …Faith works in love (Gal 5:6).

FAITH WORKS IN LOVE – Your faith does not work in  system of works or performance (your level of performance will not motivate God in any way to love you more. To walk in faith… to have a good opinion of God. When His opinion or His feeling (love) towards you becomes your daily persuasion, you effortlessly open yourself up to personally experience His supernatural power in all areas of your life, as a child of the king. Amen!! In some quarters of the Church some consider faith as a weapon to make God work. Your faith is a response to what God has already done through Christ.
