love

DEEPEST COLD VALLEYS


Cold defeat sits inside his heart like a weakling squirrel on broken branches, after the storm. Tears whipped his pale face as he reminisce his old self. What happened? When did I lost it all, he soliloquies? •

Deafening, melancholic rhythms of chaos within the ears within his ears. Oh, how fragile, even the most strongest among men, is fragile. Like a candle sets on white sandy shores at night, he glows like a lighthouse, guiding mammoth ships, but in a twinkle of an eye the winds slaps him, and he’s no more. He’s gone — to the rabbit holes, where no man knows the language they speak except the man writhing in pain & sorrow

So I said to myself, if life is only meaningful when the Beloved guides thy feet to wherewithal he wants you to be, then it’s worthless for me to go where the Lover has not sent me to be.

Father, Son, Spirit — Pruner of the vineyard Keep me on the path where your grace rules Guide my feet away from the evil that lurks. Oh, the evil that lurks in the darkness around

There is a cup in the hands of God, filled with the wine of love. The taste of it, I do not have the words to express. Whenever I am in His presence I feel lighter, yet intoxicated by the weight of His glory, possessed by mercy; indulging and embracing eternal romance, and deep assurance of love.

Your love is the most sweetest thing my soul has ever bathed itself in. Don’t tell me to jump out of this river, oh man. Freeing, nourishing, and strengthening; the deeper my feet, my soul delve into it’s grandeur —— Ah, nothing feels better than you; Jesus, lover of my soul. 

I could still be sitting on weak branches of self; wounded from within if your love and warmth had not touched the feet of this migrant bird; warming my days in eternal ecstasy.

CHRIST BEHAVING IN US


Romans 7:18 (KJV) 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not


Christianity is not just hard, it’s impossible without Christ behaving himself in us. So much emphasis has been placed on self efforts, and willpower, more than resting in the indwelling presence of Christ in the body of Christ. We have confidence in the flesh that failed many generations before the manifestation of the Spirit of Christ, now living inside our born again spirit.

In the early stages of my walk with the Lord I heard a lot from the pulpit concerning self discipline, self denying, and man’s effort as the path to a victorious Christian living. I saw a lot of my friends succumbed to the pressure of life along the way. They loved the Lord but they lacked the strength to continue the journey. Their spirit was willing but the weakness of their flesh gave up on them after years of trying hard through self discipline, and willpower to walk in the plans of God. Are you weary and worn out? Do you feel the demands of Christianity is too hard for you?Let me show you the secret to an effortless life in God. 

CHRISTIANITY IS CHRIST >>•• Christianity is never possible in anyway if Christ is not the focal point of your actions. I’m sorry for all those who boast in the flesh. Your ability can take you few miles, but the rest of the journey will be cloaked under hypocrisy, guilt, and sheer emptiness. You can never enjoy all that God is in Christ Jesus. Jesus says it this way to His church…

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5)

CHRIST BEHAVING IN US >>•• To do of Gods good pleasure, and to walk in His perfect will, God must work in men, else we fail like the old covenant generation. So God is not just a giver of joy, peace, love, wisdom and what have you. In Christ Jesus, within our regenerated spirit, God dwells in us as peace, holiness, wisdom, anointing, power, safety, healing, creativity, innovation, excellence, freedom, etc. All the things we trying so hard to acquire is already in us. What’s inside you is Jesus. Did you get it? 

Therefore we’re complete in Him by faith to bear much more fruit in our life if and only we are willing to come to the end of self, and let Him do it. How did you know that, McDaniels? Let scripture speak for itself >>•• “Colossians 2:10 So you also are COMPLETE through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

  The struggle of life is not because the devil is powerful. It is because Christ is not seated at the throne of our lives, as the chief umpire. Without me you can do nothing. Nothing means anything that’s is heavenly or divine related. You can do a lot of things by yourself, but it wouldn’t have substance in the end. 

Always remember this; “all that you want to be is already in Christ. You need love? God has already given you love in your born again spirit through Christ. He has not given you the spirit of fear but of love and of sound mind. Fear is as a result of focal change. What do u see? Jesus or the prevailing winds? The more you’re focus on Him the more your life will reflect His life. Just as He is so are you in this world. 

We are not like Christ in love and in power because our focus has shifted from Him to our own strengths. So today just trust Him as the catalyst of your earthly reality. We can trust Him completely to move and behave within us in all areas of our lives through faith. When that happens, the end product of our lives flows directly from Him. Weakness will surrender to His strength. Then Christianity is passiveness? Faith does not equate laziness. Faith bring good results to your actions. Keep on praying. Keep on working, but your eyes on Jesus. 

I SURRENDER ALL TO YOU… WITHHOLDING NOTHING >>• We can surrender or continue in the weakness of our flesh. If fear, sickness, stress or sorrow is dominating your life today, my good friend, lift your eyes to Him by faith, as His life flows through your wilderness. Paul says it’s beautifully….

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring Acts 17:28

I know without any iota of doubt, those who depend on the arm of their own flesh cannot experience the quality life of God. It’s a curse to put your trust in your flesh. Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD (Jeremiah 17:5

BE WATCHFUL >>• There are a lot of self esteem, self motivators in our pulpit today, pushing men to do the things their natural capacity cannot do in God. They shift your focus from Christ; feeding your heart with man made ideals. Don’t be fooled by their 7 steps and 21 ways to bring the best out of your flesh. In the end you boast in your achievements and success. You can’t do the Christlike life without Jesus. Jesus is the answer. Get this revelation and let it sink deep into your spirit. This will be the outcome of your life; “God working in you, creating brand new desires, and purpose as the deer pants for water in the wilderness.” You’ll start seeing yourself doing all the things they thought you couldn’t do, effortlessly. Don’t give up. Hold on to the ever-flowing nectars of God.  

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13

THANK THE LORD >>•• Just take a moment to thank the Lord for taking over your life. Trust me this will change your walk with the Lord. You don’t have to try hard again through human effort to be loving, bold, confident, peaceful, blessed, healthy, safe and sound. Your God is the ever-flowing fountain within you. You can do all things through Christ. Can you imagine the moisture of grace right now, as your spirit wrapped his arms on the pleasures of heaven? Freedom, freedom, freedom, is here, in Jesus name. Hallelujah!

SOUR GRAPES


imagesCATM3FL0

There was a mother who never knew love from no one.
Not even her own household.
______
Daily, she will drive to the cemetery,
cursing the graves of her parents,
for bringing her to a dark world;
living with ungrateful souls.
______
They fed her with sour grapes
Until her teethe was set on edge
She bite life without passion
Consumed with blurry questions
And the labors of her soul
____
Where is my reward?
Where is my honor?
Does love exist?
____
She danced in the dark rain
Wet with unanswerable questions;
Beating under her lungs like an
AFRICAN drum.
____
Maybe, one day I will find love
Maybe, one day love will find me

Whichever way it happens—
Love must find a way through this
Frangible, weary, temple of mine;
Dancing with me to the altar of freedom
___
Sadly, she never found love
Love never found her
Cause her hurt was so deep, wide,
And high than the walls of Jericho
_____
Ah, we go to cemeteries;
showering silver tears upon graves;
Wanting to hold and hug the dead
But the living is forgotten and not appreciated
____
Too bad.
Sometimes, we wait till they’re gone
To the other side of life, before we
Appreciate.
____
To all WOMEN, who feel downcast within —
I sent my love to you,
My wings i share with you –
To give you the momentum to rise
Rising unto another day
Another beautiful day
Filled with the fragrance Of Eden’s Roses
Happy Mother’s Day ❤
_____

NB: I wrote this prose poetry on Mothers Day (5/8/16)
Dedicated to all mothers who for some reason, been
broken by the unappreciative spirit of the ungrateful.
There are countless women around the world, who are
dealing with unexplainable pain – feeling lost and
neglect by society. I pray that God with baptize your
soul with His uncommon love to overcome the emptiness
within. You’re one beautiful strong woman – don’t give
up to the afflictions of life. God, even your God will
keep you from falling from the edge of insanity. Amen!

FRIENDS & FAMILY



Family is a blessing. 

Friendship is a miracle.

You have it both?

Keep it with your two hands

Protect it from the dark moon

Hide it in your heart; a treasure

Why walk with your head down?

Why sit ye lonely, filled with questions?

Blessings & miracles are always under attack

Don’t give up on them, cause of imperfections

Don’t think you can make it alone, without it

Families are a blessing from the Lord

He sets us in mild, and wild families —

The good, the bad, and the ugly, are from Him

Do everything to make it organically good

Don’t ever say; “I wish I belong somewhere”

Sometimes, we pay attentions to the little

Stuff, so we miss the bigger picture

Families are a blessing

Friendship is a miracle

I am glad I belong to a family 

You’re my family, irrespective of your color, Race, creed, religion, and what have you.

I deeply love you, fam!

FOR A MOMENT


questions

I thought I was a failure

For a moment I thought

Life has not been fair to me

Maybe, I was not paying attention to

The little things in my life that makes me

Feel complete rest with the Earth-Maker.

For a moment I thought I made it

Here, by my own strength

Looking deep, beyond my skin,

The scars of yesteryear, engraved on my

Soul, and all the places of my being

Reminded me that, this has to be Gods

Mighty hands; invisibly conjuring miracles

In my life, for all this while

It has to be Him, but no one else

I could have died a long time ago

I could have lost my mind through chaos

No, no, I am not a failure

I have been blessed, but was blind;

To unravel the goodness of my Father God

I have tasted grace when life was sour

I have leapt over walls, and stand tall;

Head above the thick clouds of evil

Sorry, for having all these thoughts in

My heart; holding doubts against your

Faithfulness. You’ve done it. And now

I am thankful and grateful for your grace.

DEAR, HUMANS Pt.1


Dear, humans

Gladden thy heart

with beauty.

Love is beautiful

to the human soul

Why?

You’ve deny thy

heart of its necessary food.

Emptiness conquers,

apathy whispers against

a belly full of chaos,

fear is overwhelmed

and dispelled, at the place

where perfect love dominates.

feast on love, feed on love;

thy soul gets it nourishment

from His loyal  love

towards you.

LOVE REVOLUTION


angry desires, teared my
patience into bits & pieces.
O’ the world refused to hear
I run out of a rebellious city,
a dark world; hiding myself in
an isolated dark cave, burning
with rage. How I have wanted
to change her, but she paid deaf
ear to my beautiful song.

Let me tell you a secret; “instead
of changing the world, I decided
to change myself, from burning
with rage; dancing in the rain of
pure love; cleansing my soul from
all other desires.” Just as a maid
watch the hand of her mistress,
the world drink from the cup in
my hands, with deep curiosity

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!
