IT CAN BE FIXED; YOUR BROKENNESS 


In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old – Amos 9:11 
God is the greatest innovator in history. He’s the master builder of all time. He’s not only capable of releasing his imagination into reality. Without a doubt he’s the only God who has the power to fix back our brokenness to its primal beauty, as if life was never tampered by chaos. Almost all humans look up to Him for the grace to build our lives to the highest peak of purpose. Are you yearning for the wisdom to start or the grace to rebuild your life after a hiccup? Whatever your position is today, there’s hope for you in Christ to walk into victory. 

A SHAKEN — Moreover, there are countless number of humans under God’s heaven who are also going through a shaken, a breaking, a destruction, a collapse of sort in their lives. Sometimes the degree of the collapse maybe deemed impossible for restoration, when they measure the depths of your fall. It could be a business venture, a relationship, the seat of your emotions, ministry, or your spiritual commitments; terribly declining.

REJOICE NOT OVER ME — The greater the fall or the breaches within our lives, chills of fear seizes its opportunity to creep into our souls, giving us a million reason live will never taste glorious again. I’ve been there before in ministry, and so many aspects of life — when everything you’ve labored for collapses in front of you, scattered in all the places, and nothing seems to work, no matter how hard you try. Colleagues will start making fun of you, gossiping about you. Some will even go to the extent of convincing their own soul, that you’ve sinned against God, instead of them to stand with you, encouraging your soul. Good friends may abandon you, even your own shadow may follow the crowd, leaving you to rot in shame. 

EXPECT A MIRACLE — But, here is the good news — God is able to close all breaches of life; healing the old wounds and memories of the past. He’s capable of raising up the ruins of our lives. Those things in our lives which were steady and strong some weeks back, or many years ago. He promise to build and restore us to days of glory. I dearly believe in a God of restoration. He can create, and he can also restore the years that the caterpillar and the cankerworm has eaten. Expect Him to fix your life again. Yes, the life which is in despair now, because of a divorce, separation, or the lost of a love one. 

JUST BELIEVE — Friend, your God will not leave you in the hands of your enemies, as you sit on top of the rubble heap with your hands over your head, whiles the wicked gloat over you. He will surely restore the fortunes of your business, prosper your wayward children, restore your ministry, your dignity, and build your self esteem back, even to the very core of your spirit. Just look unto him today, faith in your eyes, and rare patience within your heart. 

GREAT LESSONS — Don’t be in haste, running around for solutions from people. God will always use your downfall to teach you great lessons you can pass it on to others. I’m taking about life incredible lessons only pain can teach you. It’s not easy, but he will grant you the grace to endure to the end. God will prove those naysayers wrong. May God receive praise, honor, and power today, for he has remembered the reproached, and the beggarly. Oh, builder and restorer of our lives, we thank you for lifting us from the miry clay, setting us on the rock to stand. Amen!

CALL OF HOPE


 7 am.

I woke up under the bridge;

Smiled and strolled down,

on grinding lane.

2 am.

I woke up

Sat up, all night long

Wondering why in the abundance

Of life, I can’t steal a smile.

Then I realized that, riches can offer

You the best in life, but can’t guarantee,

A lifetime of true happiness.

5 am.

I knelt down beside my bed and

called on Him (God) who gives life

REAL QUESTIONS


Real questions, allow us to process or to look at things from a different window. You can open up to yourself or to the world questionsregarding these questions. My idea is not to get your answers through this channel. My aim is to help you have self talk, until you arrive at a place where you can view life from the lenses of God’s word. Why these particular questions, McDaniels? I have personally ask myself these questions, so many times the last few weeks or more.

One of the dominant thought or process flaming through my heart, within my personal journey, is the question of relevancy of Christianity to our daily life. It seems we are so indulged in the ritualistic aspect of Christianity, and by so doing most of us has lost our bearing in our pilgrim journey. Christianity should make sense to the pilot just as it make sense to the caveman. I will be sharing my soul in subsequent posts. But for the mean time…the questions!

1. Do you love showing off?
2. Do you love the Church or your Pastor?
3. Is Christianity real and relevant to you?
4. Are you so religious but empty?
5. What is your purpose here?
6. Are you happy?
7. Does life make sense to you?
8. Have you forgiven yourself?
9. Are you trying so hard to please people?
10. Have you tried something new of late?

11. How may I help you?

A HOLE IN THE GOSPEL| CHAPTER 2


Capture the central perspective of this post by reading Chapter one from here. In Chapter one, I share the vision the Lord revealed to me in 2011, in regards to His Church. He said there is an Emptiness in my Church!!

SENSATIONALISM AND EMOTIONALISM – Apostle Paul warns the Church at Colossae to be watchful of leaders who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. This is the abundant life; the well where the thirsty and dissatisfied souls find rest and Photo Credit: Google imagecomfort.

THE WILDERNESS CHURCH -We see a similar picture in the wilderness Church…The congregation murmured against Moses and were willing to stone him, for lack of water for themselves and their animals. The Lord gave an instruction to Moses, to speak to the rock (Christ) before the eyes of congregation and water shall flow in abundance from the flinty rock.

Numbers 20:11-12 (NKJV) 11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. 12 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”

Moses, out of anger and disobedience stroked the rock twice with his rod and water gushed out. What was missing in this wilderness miracle was the neglect to exalt the Lord before the eyes His people that they can place their trust in Him as their sole satisfier and provider. Moses was not supposed to take the spot light…it was Christ, who was the type of the rock. Moses and the congregation miss the opportunity to reach the promise land. It is not always about the miracle; it’s always about God who is the miracle maker. Who is your focus? Yourself, your leader, your denomination or it is all about Christ?

WHAT TIME IS IT? It is time we drop our pick axe gospel of self works, legalism, commercialization, sexism, materialism, condemnation which has become the order of the day and share light on God’s grace gospel which is simple and yet has the power to build the total man from the inside out and grant us an inheritance with eternal value. Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit spoke to the leaders of the Ephesus Church in his farewell address, to be committed to God and the timeless truth and principles of the word of His grace which has great benefits to keep them from false brethren and demonic concepts. The sound of the great Apostle still echoes through the corridors Photo Credit: synecticsworld.comof time to the 21st century church…

Acts 20:32New (NKJV) “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

A mind corrupted by wrong theology or belief system about God and who we are in Him leads to all kinds of behaviors and malfunctioning in life.  If the body of Christ is denied of her ability to behold the beauty and pleasant nature of Christ through the preaching of the Gospel which Paul says “Is able to build you up and not only that but to also give us an inheritance”  … then we deepen the vacuum of emptiness which plagues most Christians, and not experiencing this amazing grace independent of our self occupation and willpower to get access to the boundless riches in Christ. This is not a matter denominational or doctrinal over protection; it’s a matter of giving people the chance to see Jesus and throwing out all man centered religion and traditions out of the window.  Are you ready to be a part and parcel of this movement?

BUILDING NEW ALTARS I share the same passion with Malcom Smith 110% on what really matters now; preaching the gospel which is the power unto salvation and not works. He clearly sounds the trumpet from the roof top that we will all hear…“Preaching the gospel, we are announcing the news of the revelation of who Adinkra Symbol, Ghana: God's Presence and ProtectionGod is and how He feels about us. We stand on the street corners of the world shouting the news that God is not the way we thought He was – He loves us!!… This is the greatest news in the world… The love of God…is the magnetic north of truth by which we fix our position as we stumble lost in the wilderness of the world…To know that His love for us depends on Him and not on us is the beginning of the way out of the futile, meaningless lives and religious despair”

The pulpit has to be oiled again with the passion to see people transformed and not modified into robots without the ever abiding life of Christ flowing in us. Jesus said He came purposely to give us His own life in full measure. If this is heaven agenda, then the burden is not on us anymore but we must embrace this life by faith to impact us in all that we do on this side of eternity…

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly “- John 10:10 (NKJV)

The pulpit needs repentance from dead works, and come back to a true relationship with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Beating people with do’s and don’ts, when they’ve really not been empowered to know their true identity rather suppress them than doing them good. You don’t beat a servant and torture him to think and work like a king when his mind is beat down and contained in a prison of unworthiness, shame and insignificance. We tell people to become like Christ with child-laboursticks and hammers on their head, when they have no idea of who they are in Christ Jesus. Throwing fire and brimstone on people through condemnation and self occupation messages or sermons always compel sincere people to try hard on their own; because of their inability through self, they fake their identity, and yet we celebrate their outward modifications whiles they struggle under the cloak of hypocrisy on the inside. Teach me who I am and effortlessly, I will discover who I am and live naturally as God intended through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Transformation is an inside out work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer!!

You want transformation and fulfillment in Christ? Find a Christ centered church and resources that will draw you in to the riches of Christ in your daily life as a believer. May Christ be exalted before your eyes today in love and victory over complex issues of this world!!

IN JESUS NAME – DARLENE ZCHECH


This is still blessing meThe essence of life is JESUS. The western underlying thought of abundant living is having mansions in every other state and owning a fleet of cars. There is nothing wrong with having abundance in life. God is happy to see us walk in fullness which is centered on His sufficiency.
The only issue is our obsession for material gains and relegation of the quality of life, which only Christ gives to the attic. Wealth and wellness doesn’t define the abundant life Jesus promise us in John 10:10.

Abundant life is a life full of the fullness which emanates in us through our intimate union with Him. (Christ Jesus) Contentment in life comes as a result of the intimate knowledge or a loving relationship with a being (God) who is our sufficiency. Do you know the reason why the most wealthiest people on the planet who have not submitted to the Lordship of Christ Jesus always feels miserable, empty and unfulfilled in spite of their material wealth? The hole in the soul of every man on this side of eternity can only be filled and satisfied in our complete union with Jesus Christ through eternal life. Jesus is our eternal life. Things around us can change with time…the economy change, husbands and wife’s do change, business change, family members can change their attitude when things fall apart. Remember, everything around us change! Its only God, who remains the same…we can confidently shout from the roof top to the dark valleys when all things change, with joy in our hearts and praise on our lips. Why? Because we have the very life of God on the inside of God which doesn’t stop when the odds are against us. This is contentment…it comes from knowing Jesus.

Got life?

 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:2-3)

 

In Him is life!!

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:3-4)

WISDOM ACCELERATION


By wisdom a house is built

By wisdom a house is built

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver! Proverbs 16:16 (NIV)

I think what fascinates me about wisdom is that it is non-discriminatory. You can have a Phd and lack wisdom, but you can be illiterate and be wise. The pauper can obtain it, but the wealthy can’t buy it. And the strong can’t take it from the one who is weak. It would seem wisdom can be obtained by all. The only advantage in obtaining wisdom is time. The longer one lives the more opportunities to amass it, but age is only an advantage, it’s not a guarantee.

So how do we get it?

It seems that humility is one accelerant to obtaining wisdom.

Proverbs 18:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” What could be more humbling than recognizing the character and nature of God and our position to Him? The wisest of people I have encountered do not have even a smidge of arrogance or haughtiness in their person. Jesus, who had every right to power, became nothing, serving his own creation to the point of death. Humility has probably been the most difficult of postures to acquire and greatest of personal struggles I’ve faced throughout life. Every time their is pride, wisdom is absent

10/10 GLORY


imagesCAV14KZIDo you know you have one life to live and every other thing that temporarily makes you tick has the side effect to make you tired, worn out and burn out in despair today or tomorrow? The life here and tomorrow is guaranteed 110% with glory in Christ Jesus for all who will place their trust in Him. You want to bear fruit that really can last through the inevitables of this side of the cross? Check this;

John 10:10 (HCSB)  A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.

How can a poor tree bear good fruit? Only by grafting… We cannot tell how God has done his work in us, but it is done. We can do nothing and need do nothing to bring it about, for by the resurrection God has already done it. God has done everything. There is only one fruitful life in the world (Christ) and that has been grafted into millions of other lives. – Watchman Nee

Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG) 28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

The yoke of a religion which places the burden on man is not just heavy but it will rather kill your Christian adrenaline halfway through the journey. I dare you to pause for a reflection before you detour on your way to where your name is written upon. Your part of the bargain is to drop from your neck the foundational belief system which says do, do, do, do, try hard and pick the yoke of Christ which is not ill-fitting but empowering to bear much fruit through Him.

I love grace, to be honest with you I am addicted to grace. Not grace as a doctrine but grace as a person of Christ. When Paul said this to the Colossians, he was drawing a line between the shadow of death-dealing religion, and the authentic substance of a life-giving Savior. Religion says it’s about you, but the gospel of grace declares it’s all about him. Religion says “Do, do, do,” but the good news declares “It’s done, done, done!” (E2R)

Truly, truly, we have no power of our own to be able to overcome the devices of the enemy. This bankrupt attitude of pride we have borrowed from the falling world to always want to approach life situations on our own ability is not a match against Satan and his cohorts.

This sort of fallen attitude has created cult heroes who are worshiped in public squares and are seriously beat down with emptiness in their trump apartments in NY and LA and major Cities and later fade away like a shooting star without any trace. Satan is not afraid of our self motivation mantras and jargons; he is incapable to withstand the weakest army loaded with the power of the Holy Ghost, with Christ Jesus as the head of his daily affairs. It feels like jumping from the George Washington Bridge – this is awesome! I got life in Him!! Got life, my friend? (See John 3:15-16, John 10:10 for answers)

“NOW WORD”

Zechariah 4:6-7 (NKJV) 6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:  ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”

Grace is written in bold letters at the entrance of life and like graffiti on the hallways of life to escort you to your destination. Grace is neither a feeling nor an end goal. Grace is Christ! Grace is the life, the empowerment, the wisdom and all you will need to come to the end of the journey with a shout of grace, grace, grace did brought me this far.

Come to the end of self and stop trying by surrendering everything to the Zoë life to experience the glories of God in its entirety.

FAITH FAILS WHEN LOVE FAILS


Your Supernatural revelation of Gods unearned, unmerrited, unconditional love towards you will cause you to trust in Him through thick and thin to meet every need of your sanctified heart. Perfect love cast out fear and unbelief completely.
