God Wants You To Be Trainable.

God Wants You To Be Trainable.

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?

Hebrews 12:7

  1. It is not always going to be easy. A lot of people get shocked, because they became believers and life got more difficult mmm. So, let’s look at the word of God.
  2. John 16:33 says,  “ have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
  3. John 15:20 says, “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”

It is just what it is. Believers will experience purification and trials. Jesus said that the branches in him that bear fruit, the Father will prune, so that they can bear more fruit.

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. John 15:2

Remember He cursed the fig tree that did not bear fruit. He is merciful to us and not cursing us – He is simply pruning and refining us. They are meant to train us. The way of Christ and the word of God is a narrow way. It is not easy.

We are in the world but not of the world. Some days ago, the Lord spoke to me and said, “the devil pampers his own in order to take them to hell.” Also, in a vision the Lord revealed certain mysteries to me about believers and the kingdom of Heaven.

If I reveal this secret in it’s raw form, a lot of believers won’t be able to understand or comprehend it. Sometimes, when people do not understand a revelation or message, they get abusive. There were certain mysteries that were shown to Paul, that Paul said he could not utter.

All I can say is that the Lord told me that believers are not of this world. We are from heaven and belong to heaven. He told me that Heaven is an ancient Kingdom that has always existed, and He told me other things about life in heaven and its structure, but the part that I want to bring out is that He said that the world hates us, because we are not of this world. That is what He said.

The hatred is real and tangible and the world and the devil stives to harm, hurt and eliminate us. They do this simply because of where we come from. Our origin is of God.

Do not be disturbed when you pass through trials and hardship. Simply commit yourself to God and keep praying for help. Also, be trainable, and climb higher in Christ. If you do not strive to get to maturity and sonship, those trials will keep coming.

Determine to constantly pass your tests and respond right during discipline and correction. If the Lord does not correct you, you will go astray.

A long time ago the Lord said to me, “believers are always complaining about what they are going through, but they do not realise that without those things, some of them would have abandoned the faith a long time ago.”

  • Cling to God when you go through hardship.
  • Keep praying for help and restoration. Don’t let go. Don’t let go of your faith. Keep moving.
  • Let your faith carry you through and persevere. Persist, in the place of prayer because the victory is won through prayer and faith with the complete armour of God.
  • Hardship is not easy at all to endure. It devastates and traumatizes but in Christ, it will not traumatize you, if you have the right mindset.
  • That is why this word in Hebrews 12:7 is telling you to look at hardship as discipline from God so that you won’t be bitter

Verses 8 to 11 says, “If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

  1. It is important to note that this scripture is not talking about inherited curses and covenants or sickness that you were born with. When I was in the Catholic Church, we were trained to look at every bad thing as cross from God, yet we go to hospital to get treatment for so called cross from God. This defeats the law of logic and clear thoughts, and is a contradiction.

We were trained to see evil as God’s will. God’s permissive will is not God’s will. He permits those things because of man’s rebellious will. When man goes astray, God allows man and later, sin gives birth to death. Remember that death gets its power from the law.

It is our unwillingness to submit to the word of God, championed by human priests that play God and offer sacrifices to demons, that pollutes this earth. The Lord revealed to me that human priests are the root of the problems on this earth, because they constantly offer human sacrifices to death and the grave. Human will is the problem not God’s will.

The same people who sacrifice people to death are the ones telling you that your cross is from God. The heart of man is infinitely wicked and deceitful.

Your cross is mostly from human priests. Some curses are the result of ancestral, parental, and personal sin, but majority are from human priests. Think of children born blind or with terminal illnesses.

It is not God. God is our saviour and deliverer. Man unites with the devil to destroy, so man creates the cross and evil, not God. God does not do evil or delight in evil. God is not the source of any cross that anybody is carrying, including temptations and trials. They all come from the fallen nature of man.

So, we need to correct ourselves and seek the face of God when we are in God’s permissive will, and the devil gets an upper hand over us. It’s of no use yielding to evil, and saying you are carrying your cross – the cross that Jesus already carried. Don’t submit to evil, reject it, and cut it out from the root where sin dwells.

Your own cross is to deny self, crucify the flesh, resist the devil, and submit your will completely to God’s will, so that the devil will have nothing in you.

If you are sick, go to the hospital and keep praying to God for healing. The apostles experienced hardship but they were not crippled by sickness. Sickness and ancestral curses can stop you from fulfilling your destiny, so this Scripture is not about sickness and ancestral curses. The Bible says that if you are sick you should go to the elders of the Church for them to pray for you. Also, go to hospital.

  1. God who can use any experience to train you. God can use your unpleasant experience to train you, that is, if you are trainable. Some people do not know how to respond right with God. They fail the same test and trial over and over again, simply because they are not responding right. That makes them get stuck in one place.
  2. The Bible says that tests and trials happen, so that our faith which is very precious to can be as pure as gold. So, if we are not mature and our faith is not pure or perfected to bear fruit, we face trial. Jesus said to Peter in

            Luke 22:31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift     you like wheat.”

  1. If we do not grow to the full stature of Christ and are not of full age spiritually, tests and trials will definitely come. If we endure and respond right and pass the test, then we emerge victorious. Some believers get chastened, disciplined, and tested, yet they repeat the same mistakes. They experience set back. They must undergo the same examinations and trials again. So, our mindset should be the mind set of changing and responding right with God, and constant growth in biblical understanding, wisdom, and knowledge.
  2. Christ and God’s will should be our first love. When we get to that place where our faith is pure as gold and we live above the flesh, then there won’t be need for testing, discipline, trials and chastening again. That will be the time to manifest as sons of God.
  3. There is a place that God wants us to get to in Christ, and if we don’t get there, whether we like it or not, the devil will get upper hand over us, and harass us because he has something that he is using to accuse us before God. Let the devil have nothing in you like he had nothing in Jesus our Master.
  4. Do not let the devil constantly outsmart you. Put on the complete Armor of God and the whole counsel of the word of God and outsmart the devil. Give him a technical knockout by constantly walking in the complete word of God and being led by the Spirit.

As long as, we are focused on walking in the word, and in the Spirit, and responding right with God, the hardships we face will purify us, and take us to a place of glory.

May God, make you complete by the blood of Jesus

May He purify you completely

May the Lord be your glory and the lifter of your head

May He crown you with His presence
May the Lord bless you, and keep you.

Depend On God’s Grace

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3:16

  1. We cannot overcome sin by our own flesh and power. This is one mistake that a lot of people make but as they grow in maturity, they understand this truth. Ability and help come from God and God alone. Every good and perfect present comes from God. It is not Him that wills but God who shows mercy. Let the Spirit sanctify you. Depend on Him in prayer and keep feeding your soul and hiding His words in your heart, so that you will not sin against Him.
  2. God strengthens us with power. We need power, grace and help from the throne of grace. Jesus is the high priest that meets all our needs. He is the life and grace giver. Tell Him to strengthen your inner man and help you to overcome sin. The more grace you receive from the throne of grace the easier it will be.
  3. You need more power in your inner man. The inner man needs help. Pray for power in the inner man.
  4. The glory in you needs to increase and you need to be transformed from glory to glory until you are filled with grace and glory
  5. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of grace, mercy, truth and glory. By Him, God fills us with grace, glory, truth and ability.

2 Corinthians 12:9
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me

  • God’s power is made perfect in weakness. In weakness you realise how much you need His grace. Paul recognised his weakness and need for God. Remember that He said in Romans 7: 23-25

But I see another law at work in my body, warring against the law of my mind and holding me captive to the law of sin that dwells within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I serve the law of God, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.…

  • God’s power needs to rest upon you before you can be completely victorious
  • Psalm 28:8 says
    The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.

The Lord is our strength. Ability comes from God

  • Jeremiah 31:33
    But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

God is the one that writes the law in our hearts. When we meditate on the word of God and pray, God writes His word in our hearts. It is God that causes the word to grow.

  1. Romans 2:29
    But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Circumcision by the Spirit is when the Holy Spirit tackles the sin in your members and cuts of sin from within. He is the one that will destroy that desire for sin that lives in your members.

2 Thessalonians 2:13 says,

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.

1 Peter 1:2 says

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

  1. Sanctification is of the Spirit and by the Spirit. We cannot sanctify or purify ourselves. God wants us to be meek and humble. He gives grace to the humble but resists the proud. Keep praying for more and more grace and keep feeding on the sincere milk of the word.

May great grace be upon you. May the Lord Himself establish and perfect you to His own glory.

Let The Holy Spirit Lead You

The Holy Spirit Leads

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14

Psalm 143:10
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

Proverbs 8:20
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:

The Holy spirit will always lead you to do good, obey God and live in the perfect will of God. That is why He was sent by the father. He was sent to lead us into all the truth. All the truth reveals the perfect will of God.

The Holy Spirit leads those that are sons of God.

So, who are those that are not led?

Those Who Are Not Led

Jude 1:19

These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

Those that follow the flesh, and their human nature are those that are not led

The Bible clearly tells us to be led by the Holy Spirit. This means we should be constantly led by Him and let Him guide and direct our thoughts, paths and ways. It is a commandment. You do not have a choice. If you are not led by the Spirit, you will go outside God’s will and judgement will follow. If you want to live a joyful, peaceful victorious life, follow the Holy Spirit. Let Him guide, control, direct, lead and own you. Let Him be your boss and Lord.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 
Romans 8:14
Galatians 5:18
 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

To be led means that He is our Lord indeed, not just in words. He rules, controls and directs our thoughts, paths, ways, actions and life. This means we take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5

To be led by the Holy spirit means that we become totally submissive to the Spirit’s voice and the written word. It means that we stop letting our human nature or flesh lead us.

Romans 8:5,9
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit…

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. Romans 8:5

The human nature is a death nature, because judgement of death was decreed after the fall of man, but glory to God, Jesus saved us from the human nature so that we can live supernatural lives above sin.

Romans 8:5,9
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit…

However, we need to cooperate with God’s grace by the Holy Spirit and not allow the world and the flesh and human emotions dictate for us and tell us how to live. We should reject every thought, idea or philosophy that contradicts and opposes the word of God.

Jude 1:19

These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

 Jude 1:9, talks of those who divide and follow natural instincts rather than the Spirit. So, you see that following the natural thoughts, instincts and ideas of our human nature is what fights God.

It is man that fights God. The Devil does not force us to sin. Man, sins, because man loves sin. Man loves the benefits and pleasures that are attached to sin. The devil is not the one that enjoys the benefits of sin.

The culprit and law breaker is the one that enjoys the stolen wealth and other benefits and pleasures of sin. The Devil is simply the thief that catches thieves and the liar that catches liar.

Jesus said the devil had nothing in Him. Meaning that it is possible for you to live in such a way that the devil will have nothing in you.

You can only achieve this when you live in the whole counsel of the word of God. The word of God comprises of the written word and the direction of the Holy spirit.

The Holy Spirit leads you when you obey the written word and the voice of the Spirit and constantly make decisions based of the Word and the voice of the Spirit. When you constantly know the mind of the Spirit and walk in it, it means that you are walking in the Spirit. When Spirit leads you, you are walking in the Spirit.

Let the Holy Spirit lead you always.

God Does Not Live In Bottles Of Water, Oil and Handkerchiefs

snow capped trees

The presence of God does not live in man made objects like bottled oil water and handkerchiefs.

The only temple that the presence of God comes upon is the human spirit.

However the glory of God does not come upon humans permanently. It comes and goes and must be renewed daily in constant fellowship. His mercies are new everyday.

Look at Jesus and Paul they never bottled the Glory of God in a bottle of oil or water or salt or handkerchief, they lived lives of constant fellowship and dependence on God. Jesus waited upon the Lord and renewed the anointing daily.

On the other hand, demons can dwell in bottles of oil and water, salt and other man made objects.

The anointing does not rest permanently on an object, if that were the case, the clothes of Jesus would have replaced Jesus. His clothes would have been taken to all the sick people in Bethany and Galilee.

The handkerchief of Paul would have also replaced God and would have been used permanently until they decay.

Also when Paul was tormented by messenger of Satan and Timothy was sick with stomach trouble, Paul would have just brought out his used handkerchiefs and healed himself and not seek God’s face, and in the case of Timothy, Paul would have just sent Timothy his used handkerchiefs.

But nothing like that happened. Paul did not do that, because the power of God dissipates.

When his handkerchiefs were sent to the sick, it was for the moment. Those handkerchiefs were not used forever, permanently as idols.

The handkerchiefs did not replace God and seeking God’s face daily. No. Paul however kept renewing his anointing day by day.

The Bible says lay hands on them, anoint them with oil and the prayer of faith will heal the sick. The oil is merely symbolic. It has no power. Only God has power and it is the prayer of faith that pulls down the glory of God and heals the sick and not the oil.

Power belongs to God and mercy too. God will not share Hos glory with anything and anyone. Never attribute power or any of God’s eternal attributes to a man, object or created things. That is the definition of idol worship.

Flee idolatry witchcraft, occultism and magic. God’s judgement is coming upon all those who pervert the scriptures to worship man made objects, idols and demons. God loves you so keep away from idols. Judge yourself so that you will not be judged. Judgement begins in the house of God and anyone that bears the name of Christ must depart from sin.

May great grace be upon you.

Keep praying For the Holy Spirit to Lead You Into All The Truth

green grass on sand overlooking body of water

Keep praying for the Holy Spirit to lead you into all the truth. It is only when you walk in complete truth, that you will experience complete freedom. 

Wisdom and truth come through meditation on the word of God and prayer. The more truth you know, the more armed you are to overcome the deception and tricks of the devil. It is only through deception, that the enemy gains upper hand over us. Truth is a powerful weapon and an armor of God. Put on the complete armor of God!
