The Simplest yet Powerful Gospel


But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtility so your grace101minds‬ should be corrupted from the ‪‎simplicity‬ that is in Christ  (2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV)


There are uncountable formulas concocted by the religious benchmarks and the unregenerate souls; a misguided reality being accepted as a way of life by the church, because of its complexity nature. Christianity is all about an understanding of your identity in Christ, and the beautiful expression or effects of such glorious position, through faith in Him.

O’ pilgrim soul…sleeping on the wayward street; do you know who you are?


There is no science propounded by men that reveals who you  are better than the simple gospel of Christ. The gospel paints a better picture of yourself in God. My passion ans obsession is to see the beauty of the person of Christ. It is in the revealed knowledge of Christ in our hearts, that open us us to who we are. He is the mirror… our duty is to look unto Him and glow in all aspects of life. It doesn’t matter how zealous you are for God, if what goes through the corridors of your heart is not that which brings freedom and satisfaction to your soul, you can never live the quality life of your new identity. In His last discourse with the disciples, Jesus opened their heart to the solid foundation of Christianity. He has this to say;

John 15:5 (HCSB) “I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me.


I am not here to burst your spiritual bubble…am here to point you to the truth of the gospel which says; “The life (wisdom, holiness, sanctification, righteousness etc.) I live now in this life, is His life, plus nothing” We are called to His life. We are to take the simple yoke and walk with Him, being bound by the unforced rhythm of grace. Christianity is not just hard, (some people usually say, Christianity is hard) it is impossible without the manifestation of the spirit of Christ, in us. I have been very fascinated with the phrase “you can do nothing without me“. Recently, I told the Lord there are a host of things I can do without Him. Interesting right? I think I can cuss, do drugs, fornicate, and do all evil vices without the spirit help. I understand what Jesus was trying to convey to our advantage, was the importance of He behaving His life through us to live the abundant life on this side of eternity as we rest in His power. Without me abiding in Christ through regeneration and continuing to trust in Him to manifest His life of righteousness, wholeness, peace, love, joy and all that He is, Christianity is impossible.

For our minds to be corrupted from a pure devotion to the gospel of Christ, Satan has plastered the world with another gospel which points you to your human, effort to access the reality of His life. There is a form of wisdom in this form of self made actions, but it does not emphasize on the ability of Christ. Apostle Paul hammered on this truth;

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than ‪‎Christ (Collossian 2:8)


I will be trusting God to guide you through some of the elemental humanistic ideas which has crawled into our churches, destroying the liberty and the freedom we have in Christ. The duty of the Christian is simple; let your mind be consumed with the truth of the gospel. This is what is going to happens in your life….

So all of us who have had the veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord -who is the spirit- makes us more and more like him as we are changed into His glorious image. (2 Cor 3:18)

That is exactly how one imitates Christ. You are not copying Christ. He is behaving in you through revelation of the beauty of Himself as you yield yourself to His word. Few days ago a lady was going around trying to tarnish my image for something I have no clue. I became so furious to the extent that I wanted to pronounce curse upon her. Remember, God wants us to love our enemies and bless those who persecute us (that is the quality life of God). To cut a long story short, I began meditation on these verses which commands us to bless and not to curse. What was happening was that, I was allowing God to express His love through me as I yield myself completely to the spirit directed activity. Friend there was no way I could have done this exhibition of beautythrough self effort. His word is Himself. His word is full of spirit and life.

So many of us are struggling with bitterness, anger, un-forgiveness, lust, and all kinds of negative luggage. We cannot walk what we preach, until we rest in His word. The Lord told me; “anytime you ponder on my word and allow it to dwell richly in your heart, you are allowing me to express myself in you, effortlessly”. Take a text of scripture and hang on to it until it becomes a revelation in your heart, to affect your external life. Am not talking about scripture memorization….I am talking about a revelation of Christ in your heart. To God be the glory, anger was dispelled from my heart and love and peace had its throne on my heart. Alleluia!! Satan is conquered, through His life. Friend, you have already overcome. Share your praise report to encourage other believers and brethren in their Christian journeys through the comment section. Thanks and may you be moved your heart by His spirit to do His will and of His good pleasure

DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE ME?


God’s love for us; it’s the most powerful force known by man. Our love for others is the most complex thing in the body of Christ.

It is very common in christian circles to hear people brag about how zealous they are for God and deeply rooted they are in love with Him. Most believers think they get a complete grasp of Photo Credit: Google imagethe depths of love until you begin to questioned them; if their love for frozen yogurt is the same as their love for God, marriage partners, family and friends. There is a huge gap between ones love for yogurt and his love for friends. We easily mixed up agape love (the love nature of God) with conditional love (love based on conditions). My aim in this write-up is to unveil God’s nature of  love. More so, to find out if you are  radiating His love nature on this side of the cross. As new creatures in Christ, we have been transformed into the very nature of God through rebirth, to diffuse His love without measure in every place. We have become an excellent icons of God’s kind of love, on this side. Friend, let’s do a very simple exercise, which will literally change your life and that of those around you in a very profound way.

First Corinthian thirteen list almost fifteen (15) vital characteristics of God’s nature. As you read from one to fifteen on this list, you will see what love is and what love is not. Now, the question we all going to ask ourselves today is; “DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE ME?” Whenever I have asked some of m buddies this unique question, they either froze or begin to sweat from their face, down to the soles of their feet. I have had many scratched their head and ends up asking me the same question, without a clear answer. The Holy Spirit gives us a fine portrait of what love (God) is; (God is revealing His nature. As we see His nature; we also capture our identity in Him.) If God is love, then I believe that Apostle Paul in his epistle to the Church at Corinth, was not just giving the love requirements but rather painting a beautiful portrait of who God is.

 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ESV- 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; [a] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away

 Like I said before, this is a unique questionnaire or exercise to build your love muscles. All you have to do today is to grab your bible or read the anchor scripture slowly and prayerfully  wet your heart with the truth of scripture. As you meditate on God’s word, don’t condemn yourself on areas you fall short, but rather ask the Lord to continue to influence your thoughts and actions with Himself, to become the person He has intended for you to become; loving!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (ESV) 

  1. Love is patient and
  2. Love is kind
  3. Love does not envyparental love
  4. Love does not boast
  5. Love is not arrogant
  6. Love is not rude.
  7. Love does not insist on its own way
  8. Love is not irritable or resentful
  9. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing
  10. Love rejoices with the truth.
  11. Love bears all things,
  12. Love believes all things
  13. Love hopes all things,
  14. Love endures all things.
  15. Love never ends.

LOVE IS A BEING – God is love, and out of His marvelous love for us through rebirth,  has infused Himself into us, so we can live through Him, by faith. This love must be first understood as a noun (a being) in our born again spirit before it can become a verb (diffusing, actions) influencing our daily lives. What I mean is this; you 1390729_476297235817345_1573454466_ncannot demonstrate the agape love out of your bankrupt flesh, until (God) who is love is unleashed through faith, to freely rule and reign through your human vessel which lacks the natural desire to love unconditionally. For instance, I had a very difficult situation with a sister who also loves God. Honestly, I was a complete wreck whenever we had an eye contact,  at Church. My heart and emotions were not ready to let some stuff go. I was right, she was wrong was the song playing in my ears and controlling my emotions. You know what I did? I prayed to the Lord, telling Him of my inability to love, my hurt, pain, resentments all the negative energy. I believe you know what I’m talking about, if you are not living in a lonely Island. I kept placing my trust in Christ to freely love the sister through me,without her having to change her attitude. It worked so perfectly as I confided in God for a breakthrough in my heart. The next thing I knew….I was sending text messages, phone conversation, then a visit to her family for a fantastic dinner. The devil has been defeated by the ability of Christ love, and not by my might or effort.

1 John 4:7-10 (NET) 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God. 8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 By this the love of God is revealed in us: that God has sent his one and only Son into the world so that we may live through him. 10 In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

FATHERED BY LOVE – I love how the Holy Spirit trumpet it through John… everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God. The key to loving others without boundaries and limitation is allowing God to love you freely like a child who is fathered through pure love. Any kid raised in an environment of love, almost all the time grows up loving themselves and that of others. Are you receiving the unmerited love or you are daily working your way to earn His love? Those who are always trying to earn love do not know God through intimacy, to be able to love others. Such folks always expect others to earn their love through their good performances. If you had a bad performance they hold on to their love. Friend, does love look like you or do you look like love?

Photo Credit:www.tlxtransport.comThis is how God’s love manifests through us to those around us; “When we acknowledge His love through the indwelling presence of the Spirit of Christ, who always energized us through faith, to do the impossible and the uncommon”. That is the only way we can emanates or defuse Him like fragrance in every place. Allow yourself to be fathered by love. It has been said that; “Hurt people hurt”. I also believe that those who have embraced His relentless love as dearly beloved sons and daughters, will live victoriously, vertically and horizontally, without striving. Any love outside of God’s love is conditional, and it’s bound to fade out. God’s love never ends! If you have reasons to love me, then your love for me is conditional. You will say something like this; “I love McDaniels, BECAUSE….he is my friend” “he gave me $100 when I was broke, few weeks ago” “He is nice and all that”. “Because” is the clause of your love. Would you love me if am not nice? When you love me at all times no matter what, then you are walking in true love.

Ask the Lord to saturate your life with the agape presence; out of His great love, you will be able to love the undeserving  and be freed from all anti love attitudes and behaviors, which easily besets you in your relationships with people. Tell the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart today, of how dearly God loves you and how willingly He wants to express His love through you.

I WILL NOT DIE, AGAIN!


I SHALL NOT DIE AGAIN

DAILY MEDITATION
But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, 11 because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus (John 12:10-11)

BIBLE READING John 10:10, John 11:1, Psalm 34:19, John 12:1-2, Isaiah 54:17, Ephesians 2:6, Nahum 1:9

REFLECTION
Whatever the intention of the devil against you will not prosper because your righteous position in Christ qualify you eternally for Him to deliver you from every evil situation and guard you against future attacks.

John 11 records the raising of Lazarus from death by Jesus after he was buried for four days in a small village of Bethany. Jesus power over death and the grave was manifested to bring the one who he loves back to live to continue his purpose in life. You will bear with me this news of Lazarus being alive again spread through the land like wild fires that the Pharisaic system couldn’t stand the exponential growth of Jesus ministry and therefore has to find ways to attack Him and to also kill Lazarus.

Lazarus death was as a result of a particular ailment scripture did not mention. He became sick and died through that sickness. The source of this sickness was actually not from God, it is an act of Satan to prematurely take him away from his destiny. He came to steal kill and destroy, but Jesus says, I have come to give you abundant life till it overflows. That is the life God want for you and you must so desire to experience abundant life. alleluia! (John 10:10) There are all kinds of diseases sent against humanity to render many powerless, dysfunctional in society. Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (John 11:1) The same situation Lazarus and his family who were good friends of Jesus might be your experience too. The purpose of God shall always be seen in our tight spaces. Scripture records that, all things work together for our good. If Scripture says that, I believe to be true and therefore not to be moved by your current situation. God is gonna come through for you, real good. I mean too good to be true. Praise God!

The honeymoon celebration of Martha and Mary receiving their brother back to live was almost short-lived. The devil always releases his best arsenals against you on a verge of a miracle or after a major breakthrough. Can you imagine Lazarus sharing his experience with the body of believers and an instant popularity and fame throughout Bethany and even to Jerusalem? He was really living his moment of being a testament to the glory of God. After you being through it all; the divorce, surgery, bankruptcy, sicknesses, ministerial failures and all life valleys and been lifted from the miry clay and set on the rock to stand, you can still smell the scent of the past laying it’s icy hands on you.
My good friend, Your Bible says ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous; But the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken (Psalm 34:19) Whatever is the intention of the devil against you will not stand because your righteous position in Christ qualify you eternally for Him to deliver you from every evil situation and guard you against future attack. Fill your mouth with thanksgiving and see your fears turn to rejoicing. You are activating heavens interference on your behalf and the behalf of your family. He brought you out of death in style? He will keep you in perfect peace. Let not your heart be troubled.

You’re key to thwarting the plot, from Greek bouleuo; which conveys an idea of planned, take counsel, determine, a resolve, planned together to fulfill a purpose is to be conscious of your position in Christ daily. You life, business, family etc. is the subject of the devils attack, but you are already a conqueror through Christ Jesus.
You are the righteousness of God, and therefore no weapon formed against you shall prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) Listen, the greatest work of redemption is your position with Jesus in the heavenly places. Your life is hidden in Christ in His unapproachable light. Satan dare not touch the temple of God. Ephesians 2:6 And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

Did you catch the revelation precious one? The plot against Lazarus never went beyond the planning stage. The reason being Lazarus close connectedness with Jesus! Lazarus sat at table with Jesus while this demonic plot was in the air but the good thing is “Who he was with was a determinant factor”. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. (John 12:1-2)

He was with the mighty warrior and great I am. He was therefore guaranteed of perfect victory without him having to know what the devil is doing. Friend, what the devil does should not bother you and tickle you a bit. You have the whole heavenly army behind you through Jesus Christ. What a privilege to have in Jesus. Isn’t it beautiful and glorious to have a good God who knows being His ambassadors and holding a ministry of reconciliation Satan will attack us and therefore set us higher above all power, rulers, dominion, principalities through Christ. Therefore we are not afraid of ten thousands of the enemy that plot against us.
Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead,[a] whom He had raised from the dead

You’ve seen death, tasted pain and predicament, been through the valleys and high waters of life. It’s too late Devil with your diabolical plans, He has brought you UP to STAY on top. You can only expect the Lords goodness to keep you whole; nothing missing, nothing broken. What do you conspire against the LORD? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time. (Nahum 1:9)

BREAKTHROUGH EXPONENTIAL PRAYERS
1.In Jesus name, I thwart every counsel and plot of the wicked one against me and my family to be frustrated and be destroyed.
2.I resist the stronghold of witchcraft coven, psychics, diviners and all of demonic powers established purposely to terminate my life to fall into their own pits in Jesus name.
3.All kinds of fears exalting yourself against the will of God in my mind to leave right now in Jesus name

MY PROPHETIC WORD
Long life and health will God satisfy me.
My life is a perpetual testimony of Gods preservation and goodness to the world.
I am a living testament of long life, victorious Christian life and not death.
Goodness and mercy is pursuing me in every arena of life

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Affliction will not rise up a second time. Nahum 1:9b

OCEAN OF LOVE MISSION


My sin consciousness would had beat me down and throw me into condemnation and death without the perfect blood that washed my conscience from dead works sot hat I might confidently approach the throne of Grace without a sense of inferiority. You did it for me Jesus, not because I deserve it but it was in your boundless love. Where sin abounded your grace abounded much more. We embrace the riches of your heart and delve into the ocean of your abundance where our soul will be overwhelmed by your goodness and mercy
