new creation

AMBUSHED


Do you believe?

Do you believe?

Ambushed by fantasies

Chasing, chasing; after the wind.

Stumbled;

Drowned in flames.

Burning in the ocean

Tears so hot and dry

Slippery road to hell;

Your love ambushed me.

Prisoner of  this world:

Clad in fig leaves, wasting away.

Turned my night into day.

Prisoner of life;

All I know is you

All I have is you

All I love is you.

I may not have a name,

But I have a name.

The day you changed my name,

The you in me made you me.

This mystery overwhelms

This freedom; priceless!

YOU ARE FULL: STOP PRAYING FOR FULLNESS!


Photo Credit: Google imageThe just shall live by faith! Faith in what? The Christian life is impossible or meaningless without the believer judging God to be true and faithful in what the cross has wrought for us. In Christ Jesus you have been supplied with all things to the fullest. To be conscious of your lack, weakness and impotence, instead of your fullness in Him cuts you off from the grace of God. You may think, I am not strong enough, holy enough, righteous enough, blessed enough, accepted enough, forgiven enough, loved enough, anointed enough or fruitful enough. Your bucket is not half full…In Christ Jesus you are complete and whole, but it takes faith to walk in fullness.You may ask, “How can I believe I am full when am already broke busted and disgusted?”.

Beloved, you can believe you are full because your life is hidden in Christ and He is full and loaded. Paul sounds the trumpet so loud in our unbelieving ears; “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. [Collossians 2:9-10a] Did you saw that? In Christ, you have been brought to fullness! That is good news, to rescue your soul from toilsome labor, guilt, anxiety, fear and insecurity for tomorrow. Stop praying; “God make me full and start recognizing your fullness in Christ through faith. You want to overcome sin and sickness? Recognize that in Christ your sins has been punished to non-existence and your life has been redeemed from the curse of the law so that you can enjoy good health, even as your soul prospers.

THIS DRESS OF ANTIQUITY


Angry-baby-at-the-Givenchy-show

You defined me as not beautiful

The first day I cried and saw the light

That first day she saw this innocent face

She puts on me this dress I wore

I wonder when I will grow bigger, than this dress

Occasionally, I cut myself lose from this dress of antiquity

Only to be reminded by society; “the new you don’t fit”

Imagine how I have wanted to be like you, in your dress

From the corner of your eye; a despicable worm on the sidewalk

Your lips drip with the poison that killed my innocence

Like an old dog to its vomit, I sew myself back into this dress

Itchy, tight texture to my wounded skin, I wear it day and night

Allergic to life, infected with death, that delays and delays with hurt

Who will throw stones on this mirror they’ve invented in my head

Please, break me free from this repulsive world; end this ugly war

Standing at the edge of the bridge, reciting my pain; at the night watch

If she has a friend she could have sent a text message to tell why

Cold virgin feet, slipping fast to the grave;

Yet she has a little time to say a little prayer

A friend she never knew solicitously tapped her cold shoulder

The warmth of your touch; a bundle blanket on my cold soul

You breathes on me with contentment: You’ve woken me up to live

You’ve made my life so beautiful; there is nothing greater than this

Just as you are: You have clothed me with the beauty of thyself

On the sidewalk; she walks majestically with smiles on her face

Defying the odds of a vicious society, with a new self, a new song;

Yes Jesus loves me

Yes Jesus loves

Yes Jesus loves me

For the Bible tells me so

GOD REJOICES OVER YOU WITH JOY


My Savior is a great shepherd. My Jesus is a good shepherd. Each sheep at His sheep pen are His favorite. He watch over us with equal attention and rejoice over every one of us with gladness of heart. He is in the midst of us, in the midst of the storms. He calms us with His over the top love. Even those who are overwhelmed with sin and their heart fails in fear, and the ones wounded in heart, through trying times; He carry upon His shoulders and send them to quiet waters, to refresh their soul. From the riches of His abundance, we drinks to our fill and eats to our satisfaction. All we ever needed, He anticipated and made super abundant provision, for our daily benefits. We are the sheep of His pasture, and all that He has is ours.

good shepherd

  The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing. [Zephaniah 3:17  AMP]

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.

CLOTHED IN PERMA-GLORY


The manifest presence of God is a reality we all need to plug-in. God is here; living gloriously and in power within the believer, to bring us into supernatural reality of heavenbottle-on-beach on earth; in solemn intimacies with divinity. Many Christians still operates under the old covenant mentality of trying to work their way out through religious rituals and holy slaving to experience a visitation from God. They have ignored His abiding presence, due to their “maranatha come mentality” in all aspects of their Christian life. They have never learned through their union with Christ, to exercise their righteousness and authority over demons and the works of darkness. They whine and cry with sad face, desperately asking God to overcome the devil for them when they have already been empowered with the life of Christ to walk over serpents and scorpions. Jesus, in His discourse with the disciples before His death at Calvary cross, promised the believer of the abiding presence of the Holy Ghost on this side of the cross. Through our new life in Christ Jesus, wrought by His finished work on Calvary, we are crowned with glory of the Father, to express His power on earth.  John echoes the Masters prophetic agenda, which is already fulfilled……

”John 14:16-20 (KJV)16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

The phrase  he (Holy Spirit) abides with you forever is the Saviors thoughts and not men’s own words and therefore must be highly regarded as the truth, without any biases. I believe forever has not changed in meaning. It still means all the time or continually… the presence of God is with us and in us continually. What a blessing! We have received of the fullness of Christ through the indwelling presence of God so that, we can walk or experience a new day of glory, on this side of eternity without fear or timidity. We don’t need to break open the skies with prayer for the flood gates of heaven to open for a second outpouring. Friend, we don’t need a team of prayer warriors to intensify their groaning through self-denial and white fast to motivate God to show up either. We don’t need the double portion of Elijah’s anointing which are being sold for  hundreds of dollars through the ignorance of the prayer shawl. The anointing or power is Christ, and thank goodness  He lives, we also must live in His present glory of Christ. Will you keep on begging for what has already been given to you? (See Ephesians 1:3) That may seem a bit insane to keep begging for what you already have. Sadly to say, most Christians love slaving and begging for wrong reasons. They have waited on God for thirty years for healing revival when all they have to do is to jump into the stirring pools of the unstoppable flow of grace. Go to any business center in your city and pray for one disable person to be whole, and see what will happen. Revival will breakout in no time!! The glory is in us. This is not pride. This is identity by revelation. Glory! We are the answer to this world!!

We should not live as slaves begging for bread with pale face but as sons and daughters of the King, with smiles in our faces and songs of praise in our mouth? In Christ Jesus, we are living in the reality of the riches and glory of God, which now covers the earth. (See Is. 6:3) We do not have to travail for His glory for months, but to exercise in His glory. We have to believe that Jesus is enough, and walk with smiles on our faces, as carriers of His glory. Jesus profound words should settle the confusion in our hearts and let’s throw our human efforts out of the window and rest in Him; “for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you”I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you”. I wonder why we love the ritualistic works of religion to the neglect of the reality of scripture. In holy tears, most congregations gather on Sundays or in revival meetings and sings in unison, with great passion, filled with unbelief; “pass me not my gentle Savior, hear our humble cry”.

Friend, Jesus dwelleth with you and is in you. He will not leave you comfortless nor forsake you. Why? He has already rent the heaven when He poured Himself on humanity, on the day of Pentecost. (See Acts 2) Friend, God is not moving an inch, irrespective of how loud and miserable our faces portrays that we so desperately needs Him. The days of praying beggarly prayers are over. We are living in the moment of representing Christ, as ambassadors and living icons, coloring the earth with the sweet fragrance of God. Wherever we find ourselves in this life, the presence of God is fully available for good works. We can love effortlessly and bless people genuinely, as conduits of His glory. Our feelings may sometimes be blind to the waves and waves of His glory. His glory is not an on and off activity switch. We can be switched off through sin or unbelief, but He is always present, at work, and moving in the midst of His people to save and deliver. hallelujah! Therefore, we no more pray like this….

“Come, O’ Lord and heal our land…Please, we need you in our midst today. We waiting on you for a humble touch. Father, We are kneeling before thy altar, for one more touch. Open the heavens and send down rain, O’ Lord…Send down revival and break our fallow grounds…Heal our weak and sinful bodies. We are desperate for your glory and power for greater works…Come Holy Spirit and saturate this atmosphere with life. Please, take over this service in thy power and thy strength…Oh, we need a double portion of you, sweet Holy Spirit”

  John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

The knowledge of the dynamics of the Father and the Son’s relationship is the key to understanding the dynamics of the Son and the believer’s relationship. Jesus in His earthly ministry had an abiding union with His Father, always all the time. He always plugged into what His Father was already doing. He never begged His Father to love Him or show up when it was necessary. He was living in the consciousness of a close-knit intimacy with the Father, through it all. He was swimming in the ocean of the Fathers activity. No wonder He was victorious in all things. When the Pharisees questioned him of why He healed a sick person on the Sabbath, He had this to say;

John 5:17-20 (AMP) 17 But Jesus answered them, My Father has worked [even] until now, [He has never ceased working; He is still working] and I, too, must be at [divine] work. 18 This made the Jews more determined than ever to kill Him [to do away with Him]; because He not only was breaking (weakening, violating) the Sabbath, but He actually was speaking of God as being [in a special sense] His own Father, making Himself equal [putting Himself on a level] with God.19 So Jesus answered them by saying, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but Heis able to do only what He sees the Father doing, for whatever the Father does is what the Son does in the same way [in His turn].20 The Father dearly loves the Son and discloses to (shows) Him everything that He Himself does. And He will show to Him (let Him see) greater things

yet than these, so that you may marvel and be full of wonder and astonishment.

The Father is still working. This is not an end goal; it’s an exit goal – The Holy Ghost is with us to show us what Jesus has already done. He shows  us that, we are more than conquerors, accepted, empowered, forgiven, complete and full of power, to walk in dominion and fruitfulness through faith. Peter, a disciple of Jesus caught the revelation of what the finished work has wrought for him. A man, who rejected his master three times for the fear of his life, became a firebrand, turning Jerusalem and its surroundings towns, upside down, for the glory of the gospel of Christ. His life was impacted three hundred and sixty degrees when he realized that he was clothed in perma-glory, as promised by Christ before His death. When we see whatever the Father is doing, we plug into His activity and flow in that supernatural dimension. This is the difference between trying and knowing. Lack of knowledge, leads to all kinds human ability, trying to get access to God’s unmerited favor, which always leads to frustration

BEAUTIFUL GATE–We are all familiar with a gentleman who was born crippled in Acts chapter three. He was daily carried to the entrance of the temple not to experience the glory of God but to rather ask for alms. Probably he had done that for many years and had no idea that his healing had already been paid some months from The Very First Christians Concordia Publishing Houseearlier, when Jesus was hanged on the tree. Peter and John were heading into the temple when the crippled man begged for a gift. The attitude and reaction of Peter and John is the core of Christianity. Let the Bible speak for itself… Acts 3:4-6(HCSB)Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, “Look at us.” So he turned to them,[a] expecting to get something from them. But Peter said, “I don’t have silver or gold, but what I have, I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” Christianity is a shared life of Christ fullness (See John 1:16-17) through union (See Romans 6:2-4). It is a demonstration of the Christ in us the hope of glory. (See Col 1:27) Peter and John did not look into the skies telling God about the predicament of the crippled man. They did not ask God, if He was willing, He could make the guy whole, neither did they beg the man to give them a month or two to bring special intercessor’s and prayer warriors to fast and bind the principality which rules that jurisdiction. Here is the good news; “What I have, I give you”. We can only give what we have received, through the promised Spirit irrespective of the color of your skin, age, gender or nationality. There is joy, favor, wisdom, power, authority and all of God in our born again spirit; faith will unleash His glory to affect us and those around us. Peter and John walked in the faith of what they already had through the name Jesus. The manifestation of what is in us is the answer for the world today. I tell you, profound miracles and mega impact can only take place within the body of believers if and only we can walk in a new consciousness being clothed in perma-glory.

Acts 3:7-8 (HCSB)Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strongSo he jumped up, stood, and started to walk, and he entered the temple complex with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.

 YOU DON’T NEED GIANT FAITH TO WALK IN HIS GLORY You already have the measure of His faith in you.(See Romans 12:3) Stop trying to make God work and start receiving what He has already accomplished, through faith.  “One of the best explanations of faith that I have learned is this: “Faith is simply a good opinion of God”.This makes it so simple for me. When I need faith, I don’t have to look at myself to produce faith. I just need to look at God. And true enough, in times where I am low in faith, it’s because my opinion of God at the time needs adjusting”.- GraceNet Your faith does not adjust God to work but rather brings you into an alignment with God to receive or appropriate His manifold blessings. hallelujah! Do you know healing glories already abide in you? (See 2 Peter 2:24) Don’t believe in the lie that God want to test your faith with sickness and weaknesses, on this side of eternity until you reach heaven, where there will be no health issues and pain. You can live heaven on earth. Your heavenly Father has made provision through His Son, that you may live real good. Heaven is not a location goal, it’s an exit perma-glorygoal. Heaven is already in you to overcome earthly evils. You have the power of God residing in you as partaker of the nature of God. Lay hands on the sick, cast out demons, speak life, rejoice in the spirit, walk in boldness in the midst of your fears, believe you can be successful in all your endeavors because the glory and the favor of God, shall always lead the way.

My friend, never limit your place of glory to human activity. You don’t have to serve the Lord for a decade before you are matured into deep waters of His presence. God is all in all doing wonders on earth, through ordinary vessels. I love the words of Peter when the crowd of people who saw the healing of the paralyzed, run and surrounded them, as though they have done that through their own power or holiness. Peter echoed this truth; “Acts 3:12 (HCSB) 12 When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though we had made him walk by our own power or godliness? They affirmed that, the miracle took place because of the activity of the glory of the name Christ, unleashed into a territory which Satan was controlling through the power of infirmity, upon a man created in the image of God, but bound by hell. Mere men, (Peter and John) just like you and I was turned into new breeds through covenant of the new birth, not on the basis of their own effort or godliness but on the basis of faith in what is already accomplished or done. You got faith to change the odds pile up against you, as you yield or rest in the glories of God for uncommon wisdom and guidance of the Spirit, for guaranteed results. Why are you waiting when you already have His life in you to rule and reign? “But am waiting on God to move in His own time” “The clouds have to gather before it rains, McDaniels” That sound very spiritual by my Friend, the clouds gathered and His rain fell on our dry land, once and for all, two thousand years ago. Open your eyes, for the harvest is ready!!

John Crowder trumpets this truth so loud and clear: “But by far, the “open up the Heavens” slogan is one of the more popular mottos of unbelief today, google imageaccompanied by obligatory groans, pleas and mournful entreaties. It sounds like a romantic request indeed, but it is an accomplished one. Opening and closing the heavens is not an on again, off again affair. “Last week, when our worship leader hit that one chord on the guitar, the Heavens opened up!” Wow. All we needed was a guitarist I suppose! If Jimi Hendrix had come a little earlier, perhaps Jesus didn’t need to die after all? I don’t deny that you had a good service and that people felt the Glory. But in reality, the Glory of God was already there. You just became aware of it. God’s heavenly presence is not a fleeting, or gradually oncoming thing that is subject to the whim of the congregation’s mood. In fact, the Bible never even says that His Glory is a future-coming thing. It’s already here.Some people think that one day His Glory – His manifest presence – will cover the Earth as the waters cover the seas. That’s a misquote of Habakkuk 2:14, which actually says that the “knowledge” of the Glory will one day cover the Earth… Instead, read Isaiah 6:3 which says that Heaven and Earth are right now full of His Glory. The Glory is here, but one day the whole Earth will be aware of it… You will not live a consistent, daily life of open heavens reality if you can’t acknowledge that you are in perma-glory”.

DESPERATE FOR GOD?


“True Christianity is not about feeling a sense of hopelessness-desperation for God’s attention. In Christ Jesus, we have 24/7 relentless love and caring attention of our heavenly Father. Our faith is not a stimuli to evoke a speedy reaction from God, but rather our faith embraces and appropriates whats He has already done through the finish work of Christ Jesus, on Calvary cross”

Hebrews 13:5 … For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

IMPOSSIBILITY IS NOTHING


“Whatever God demands from you, He himself will faithfully do it, in style”

You are a step away into fulfillment. That one step into good health, finding the right partner,discovering your purpose, fulfilling a career goal or living in total victory in all facets of life, has birth a deep longing in our empty hearts throughout human history, for answers. The quest for fulfillment and the pursuit of happiness by the masses has drowned many citizens of this world into the sea of frustration, stress, disappointment and the lack of fulfillment at every scale of their life. The reason being that, we have given our attention to the wrong prescriptions and formulas of the natural man. Tons and tons of believers have been hypnotized by the noise makers, to the neglect of the Godly principle of tapping into being. We are always caught up in doing instead of resting in the overflowing current of the quality life of God.

Are you in search for the next guru on TV to give you a formula or the token and canticle Prophet, who boasts of having the answers to take you into a blissful destination?  When we are at one with divine influence (grace), no matter the color of your skin, economic status, tribe or geographical location, you have the power to make it. In essence life becomes effortless. This sounds like laziness or a prescription for passivity? Friend, doing nothing is laziness…the life of rest is about surrendering and alignment to a whole new world of God’s unlimited grace through you, for an uncommon possibilities. You become a walking warehouse of the enabling power of God to stand before every challenge with deep conviction for supernatural change.

He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1 Thess 5:24  

You will agree with me my friend, that sometimes we all become so overwhelmed with uncertainties which cast gloom over the future, and limits acceleration in our own callings and journeys. All kinds of thoughts begin to flood over the brain with a tsunami-like force; without breathing space to escape from the prison of one’s own thoughts. Your belly begins to bloat with regret, and the inner critics begin to talk you out of your purpose in life. These moments are always not pretty… you don’t feel the sense to keep holding on to the towel in your hand but to let it fizzled out into oblivion. When the odds are against you and the writings on the wall seems to guarantee a no way out; as a child of God, quitting is not an options.

Do you find yourself at the dead-end of life? Writing a suicidal note, going through a hard time getting a job or guiding a company to peak performance, feeling Google Image

defeated, bad report of the doctor, no sign of success in any area of your life or dealing with an addiction are all limitation hurdles one needs to overcome. There is nothing in the realm of the Kingdom of Christ, called dead ends!! Dead ends are the perception of a mind which has lost alignment with the truth of God’s enabling power, which is available for all who will believes in Him. Here is the secret for an exponential breakthrough my friend.. “every assignment in your life, if its God’s ordain… certainly have 110% of heavens backing, irrespective of what happens today or tomorrow”. What God demands from your life, (you can smile on this one) is what He will faithfully, carry out!! I say it again; He will faithfully bring it to pass.

Do I have to worry and be afraid, if God will do it? You do not have what it takes on your own power to navigate through untested terrains in life, to make things happen in your own terms and ways. The good news is that; “You can fulfill any life assignment or purpose which seem unreachable or impossible in any sense, as you learn to surrender through faith in the work-ability of God. God’s power swallows your weakness and questions with tangible supernatural solutions. The frustration in the life of most believers is as a result of trying too much. Most believers make it their own business to conjure some form of magic they have no ability to do to beautify God’s will. Self reliance is a serious cancer which has crept seriously into the Church of Jesus Christ over many centuries ago. Precious one, sink this glorious truth into your heart, and let it dominate your emotions, will and mind. You will ignite a brand new perspective in your spirit towards life and see God turn the impossible situation around, without any sweat. Jesus and the early Church were a model ofgoogle image this principle of trust. Paul states that clearly; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)

If this truth still sounds like a doctrine of passiveness, then listen to what Jesus said in regards to the Fathers activity through Him. “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner”.John 5:19 (NKJV) Jesus came to this earth to show us the dynamics of God. He never depended on His humanism in accomplishing the Fathers task. He humbled himself, (He tapped into the activity of  His Father) even to the point of death. At the cross, the episode was a demonstration of a life under complete obedience to the quality life of God to fulfill the very demand of heaven. Why was Jesus able to sustain physical pain and all the negative emotions He has to walk through? He was able to love because, He learned to plug into the wells of love through faith in His Father instead of the toxic vibration of the Pharisees and the Jewish community.

Jesus, unveils this powerful and profound principle which was hidden from man, after the original sin in the garden. This is the Christed principle of total surrender and connectedness to an ocean of grace, which causes one to bear much fruit, even if you find yourself in a dark hole; “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing”. “John 15:5 (NKJV)

Impossibility is absolutely nothing when we are plugged into Christ. In Him is life and through Him are we complete. Whatever your needs are…Jesus life is your sufficiency. alleluia!! Peace, joy, hope, love, and all the Christian virtues that shapes us to be considered as a victorious soldier of Christ is not a self effort or Photo Credit: Google imagediscipline act. Fruit bearing is the direct work of the Spirit of Christ in the life of the believer who sets His mind and affections on Christ, instead of following a certain form of legalistic rules or rituals. You can’t bear fruit without spirit rest.There has been many a time in my personal journeys, that I have felt it’s my own business and responsibility to make things work. This attitude sounds positive to our carnal minds on this side of eternity, but it has an underlying limitations of stress, worry, anxiety, disappointments, inadequacies, limitations, scarcity, shortsightedness etc. which so well plagues the falling man.

I have gone through emotional burnt out, failure mentality, fear and a host of other negative emotions. I saw the light of peace shining in my heart and impacting everything that I do in life for unusual turnaround, because I realized that my existence in life is by divine mandate, and the one who call me into design, will surely order my steps, if I learn to rely on Him totally day by day, as my source of everything. I don’t fret over anything; I chose to trust Him when even circumstances don’t make sense to my peanut mind. alleluia! Beloved, you can break any form of limitation in your life today, as you learn to take the yoke of the job from your neck by resting in His indwelling ability through you, to fulfill His plan effortlessly. You have no need to worry and be burdened about your assignment or the mountain before you. Trying is not the normal Christian life, and a model of the quality life of God for us, as believers. From A to Z, Christianity is a life of resting in God whiles He worked through us, effortlessly. There is calmness, humility and assurance in surrendering than human efforts and self centeredness.

Be still my friend!! To His covenant children at the banks of the Red Sea, who were so traumatized by the galloping horses and chariots of Pharaoh and his legions of soldiers, in pursuit for the dear lives of God’s chosen people en-route to the promised land. The last thing to have crossed the mind of  the Hebrews was Pharaoh coming for them after he has pronounce them as free people. Their lack of identity and knowledge of the ability of God brought them to the edge of their weakness. The rays of murmuring and panic was like a robe on the back of the great and the weak among the congregation. Heaven had to kiss the earth one more time to teach us the mode of photo credit: google imagesoperation of God, among His own. God spoke to Moses, the leader of the Hebrews and the entire congregation in pilgrim journey to the land flowing with milk and honey, whose heart were melting because of the Egyptians; “to be still and know that He is God” Nothing is impossible with God, when we are still. There is a fantastic truth in that simple phrase “be still”. Are you at rest in the overflowing favor of God or you are conscious of your own inability?

Friend read this verse aloud to your own hearing, repeatedly. It sum up our own distractions in our personal journeys when the odds are too high…

“Exodus 14:11-16 (NET) 11 and they said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the desert? What in the world have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Isn’t this what we told you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone so that we can serve the Egyptians, because it is better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!’” 13 Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord that he will provide for you today; for the Egyptians that you see today you will never, ever see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you, and you can be still.” 15 The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 And as for you, lift up your staff and extend your hand toward the sea and divide it, so that the Israelites may go through the middle of the sea on dry ground”

To stand firm is to work from the platform of the persuasion of God’s word which is the final authority. One can choose to build his house on the rock or on sinking grounds. Jesus (word) is the rock on our feet and the game changer on every situation. Spend time in God’s presence by meditating on the word to set you on alignment with the power of God to annihilate the cascading army of the wicked one. Beloved, you are a step away to a land flowing with milk and honey through surrendering to the provisions of His promise. Always remember; “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it… (1 Thes 5:24 NKJV)

I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD


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

NEW CREATION


www.middletownbiblechurch.org

He that kneweth not sin became sinful

He that kneweth sin was made righteous

Have I not made thee in my likeness?

Shall I measure thee, Oh fairest among all?

To the societal standards of significance

Thy beauty surpass them all, on every scale

The dark seasons of time changeth thee not

The flower fades the grass withers but thou art

Completely complete and wholly whole, within

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

Just as I am so art thou in this blemished world

A salt to preserve

A light to shine

Ashes to ashes,

Dust to dust;

 An end?
