But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; (1 Peter 2:9 NKJV)
Redeemed, set apart, chosen, holy, consecrated and royal – that is what you are.
If you are still dining and dancing with sin, cuddling it and romancing it, then you have lost your bearing. The truth is that you are royal and special. You are not ordinary or common.
You were created to live above sin and the blood of Jesus has made it possible. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin and gives us the ability and grace to live above sin. The blood of Jesus also set us free from past sins that have been forgiven. Our punishments were canceled by the blood of Jesus.
Glory to God who made us chosen, redeemed, free, forgiven, royal, holy people. Thank you Jesus for loving us so much. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. (Revelation 2:23 NKJV)
This is a godly reminder that God is not weak – He still judges as the judge of believers and unbelievers. He has promised to give each one of us according to our works so we should not be deceived.
Jesus was filled with the fear of the Lord and the fear of the Lord is one of the spirits of the Lord. Do not let the false teachers lead you astray and entice you into power without holiness and blessings without sanctity. God wants us to be mature and completely sanctified.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD–Isiah 11:2
Most us us want power but we do not care much for the fear of the Lord, wisdom, understanding, counsel, knowledge and fear of the Lord. It does not work that way, we need to fear the Lord with awe and respect.
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. (1 Timothy 6:11 NKJV)
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1 Timothy 6:12 NKJV)
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14 NKJV)
The good fight of faith is about pursuing righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and gentleness. It is about manifesting and producing the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Unfortunately, some false teachers have twisted the Bible to give Scriptures, meanings that are different from the original meaning.
God hears the righteous, so if your walk is right with God and you are bearing fruits for Him, all other things will be added to you. If you seek and pursue the right things like righteousness, love, gentleness, faith and patience you will not have to seek and pursue a perverted version of faith that teaches you how to worship, mammon, money, pleasure and prosperity.
Worship of God is completely different from worship of prosperity. God wants you to be prosperous but not at the expense of the health of your soul and being filled with the fruits of the Holy Spirit. We were commanded to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness but we were not commanded to seek prosperity and all other things. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him not those who diligently seek prosperity but do not seek God. God is faithful and He answers prayers but we should not act like pagans.
May we seek righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and gentleness. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
Jesus is both the word of God and the glory of God. He is also the grace of God, the wisdom of God, the mercy of God and the life of God. He is the manifest presence of God. We need the word of God and we also need the glory of God but the glory only comes by complete union with the word of God.
The word of God is:
1. What Jesus did for us, that is the gospel, good news or message
2. The laws of Christ
3. The counsel, voice and direction of the Holy Spirit.
The only way that the Holy Spirit can control us, is by us completely abiding in the word of God. We have to walk by the good news or the gospel and believe that we are redeemed and forgiven. We also need to abide in the laws of Christ and the voice and direction of the Holy Spirit. By doing this we are uniting with the Holy Spirit and the Word Of God. The Holy Spirit is the one who gives us the voice of God on earth so loving Him means loving His words.
ThisI say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16
When we obtain union with the word of God and the Holy Spirit, we will then experience the glory of God. The glory of God is constantly present in heaven that is why there is constant life in heaven. However, the glory of God or the manifest presence of God is not always present on earth that is why you see death and the effects of death here on earth. The earth is the dark land of death or the valley of the shadow of death.
The people who live in darkness will see a great light. On those who live in the dark land of death the light will shine.” Matthew 4:16 Good News Translation
the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” Mathew 4:16 NIV
So, what man needs is the glory and the word of God, but man cannot taste the glory of God without submission to the word of God. The word of God, then should take precedence over all else. Those who truly love God are those who seek His word, will, Kingdom and righteousness. They do not run after material things like pagans because they know that seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness is all that matters and that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
May we love the word of God above all else and may great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
Having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation (1 Peter 2:12 NKJV)
Sometimes, believers relegate good works to the background of their Christian Faith but the Bible clearly tells us that unbelievers can glorify God because of our good works. The fruits of the Holy Spirit manifesting through us can also attract, and draw men towards Christ.
Filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through JesusChrist—to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:11
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13
Unbelievers will take us more seriously if we practice what we preach, after all, the summary of the gospel is to love and forgive others the way Christ loved and forgave us. The gospel is all about believing and obeying. We must believe that the blood of Jesus set us free and we must bear and manifest the fruits of the Holy Spirit which is the good works of Christ through us.
In this vision, I was in a gathering and I saw a girl. She was about sixteen years old and was putting on white. Then I ministered to her according to what the Lord showed me. I said to her, “I can see purity all around you. When I look at you, all I can see is purity.” I continued, “the Lord said I should tell you that the Holy Spirit will go into your belly like a ball of fire. You will manifest Him.” I also told her about her future husband and the man she will marry.
Beloved, where is your white garment? Have you lost it or have you forgotten that you need to constantly put it on? The truth is that there is no short to the things of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit loves purity regardless of all the false doctrines and confusion flying around, in the Church. If you have everything and you do not have purity, you have nothing
The Holy Spirit fills up sanctified vessels of honor. He loves clean temples. If the temple of your heart or spirit is unclean or defiled, he will not fill it up. He is there, He is with you but you will not feel His manifest presence. If you truly care, if you truly want and desire Him, crave purity and crave Him. He is just a heartbeat away. If you are thirsty for the living water that flows from the throne of grace, pray to Him to cleanse you, and make you a vessel of honor by His awesome great grace. His grace is always available and He is not stingy. Desire purity and the Lord will cleanse you beyond your wildest imagination.
I have noticed that most of the young girls that the Lord takes me in visions, to minster to have prophesies about their future husbands. I do not know why but I have come to realize that the Lord loves marriage. Now, coming from a place where I wanted to be a nun, and made to believe that being single is a superior, better and exalted way of serving God – my human logic has been overwritten by God’s own logic. He is so compassionate and He understands the struggles of single women and men.
A lot of single women are exploited and abused because they have no physical protection. They have no one to fight for them, especially, if they are financially disadvantaged. Beloved, if you are a young and single woman, take your life and future seriously – pray fervently for your own husband as you walk in God’s ways, and God our comforter, will comfort you by blessing you with a caring, God fearing man. If you are older – also pray fervently for a husband.
I focused on the young women because this vision was about a young girl. It is better to start early to desire a home of your own. A home is not a house. A home is a family. If you are not able to have kids, adopt, as you exploit the various options of medical science. Believe me, loneliness is not good and it attracts depression. It is definitely not good for man to be alone.
God settles the lonely in families; He leads the prisoners out to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land. Psalm 68:6 Berea Study Bible
God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. Psalm 68:6 ESV
He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD. Psalm 113:9 NIV
He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the LORD!Psalm 113:9 New Living Translation
Overall, marriage is good. The Lord said to me sometime ago, “a blessed woman, is a woman that hears everyday, that she is loved.” Men, express your love daily and constantly to your wives. Give them emotional comfort and support. Some people think that it does not matter, but God thinks and knows that it matters. Never take love for granted – be like God and imitate Christ. Love your wives the way that Christ loves the Church.
In this vision the Lord took me into a Church. In that Church, I saw some of the people that write awful things and comments on social media. They were part of the congregation. These were people that openly supported and urged the killing of people that were not of the same tribe, race, ideology, religion and belief system like themselves. I was very shocked to see them in Church and I exclaimed, “ Lord, are these not the same people that openly support and encourage the killing of people who are different from them on social media!”
The Lord replied me and said, “don’t mind them – they are pretenders, they are not Christians.” I was very shocked and came out of the vision. If you really think about this you will realize that no true Christian will support any form of injustice or killing. My spirit was shocked because I could not reconcile their words and actions with their presence in Church as Christians. But the Lord eased my confusion with clarity and truth – they are not Christians.
He said “don’t mind them” because He does not want us to pay attention to their words, actions and works and be confused, deceived or discouraged.
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19
Brethren, the Lord truly knows the pretenders and the real, the true and the false, the original and the fake, the authentic and the counterfeit. He knows those who are His and who belong to Him. If you live your life in hatred and still believe that you are a Christian, then I feel very, very sorry for you.
Do you know why? It is because that is the worst form of self deception and it is the type that leads to death, hell and the grave. Heaven and Hell are very real and unfortunately, some people who think that they are Christians simply because they mention, mouth and do lip service to the name of Christ will be deceived and disappointed.
They will go to hell if they don’t repent and it won’t be God’s fault. That is the word of the Lord. God did not disappoint them – they disappointed themselves with hatred. God’s grace is greater than sin and hatred and it is available. The only thing we need to do now is to choose love and reject evil and hatred.
Our fruits and works will always be an evidence of what we believe and worship. It does not make sense hiding under the canopy of Christianity and misusing the name of Christ yet be full of the worst form of abomination, wickedness, evil, greed and hatred – it does not make any sense. No amount of hiding, pretense and self deception will save us from judgement. God sees every form of pretense by man. He wants every man to be saved but we must choose good and reject evil.
The heart of man is very wicked and deceitful. We have to constantly pray against every form of self deception.
What I took away from this vision is that:
The Lord knows those who are pretenders and that word He called them is very effective in conveying the true nature of these supposed Christians.
It is possible to believe that you are a Christian, yet you are not a Christian but a pretender.
Anyone who calls the name of the Lord must keep away from hatred and sin. He must hate hatred and evil in order to be a real Christian instead of a pretender.
Christian means Christlike so it is great folly to be Satan-like, devil-like and demon-like and claim Christianity.
Christianity is not a label or tag – it is a way of life that manifests itself and bears fruits. Wisdom is known by its fruits.
May God’s great grace be upon us and lead us always. May we always bear fruits to the glory of God. Amen.
Now unto him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. (Jude 1:24 – 25 KJV)
God alone is able to keep us from stumbling and make us faultless. If the Bible says He can, then He can, and we need to believe this word or else we make God out to be a liar. Some believers do not believe that we can be blameless or faultless but we can and it is a function of God’s grace not our power. The blood of Jesus already made us perfect, blameless and faultless but we need to grow into the fullness of our inheritance.
Jesus died so that we can die to sin and live for righteousness – complete righteousness. Some people who have gone off balance with the Faith Message love to contradict any message on works, holiness and righteousness but they are misled. Even the proponents of the faith message will tell you that faith works by love and that if you are not in line with God’s will, your faith will not work. I am an avid reader so even when I was very young, I read most of Kenneth Hagin’s books and did a lot of critical analysis, evaluation and reasoning. I noticed so many contradictions in a lot of Christian books and messages so I became cautious.
After a while, I stopped reading Christian Books and focused exclusively on the Scriptures. That was when the Holy Spirit started exposing Scriptures directly to me in line with my calling. Clarity came from focusing on the word of God, the Holy Spirit and prayer. The Holy Spirit is our teacher and He teaches us with the Scripture. If you examine the Scriptures closely, you will notice that both faith and works are very important. Jesus and Paul had both – they never traded one for the other. That is balance.
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Revelation 3:2
So that you may be innocent and pure as God’s perfect children, who live in a world of corrupt and sinful people. You must shine among them like stars lighting up the sky. Philippians 2:15
In the final analysis and conclusion, God loves faith and He also loves works and wants our works to be perfect. He wants our faith to be complete and He also wants our walk, work, obedience and righteousness to be complete. He wants us to put on the whole counsel of the word of God and the complete armor of God. He does not want us to reject or look down on any armor.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Mathew 5:6
He is willing and eager to make us blameless and faultless. All He needs, is our faith in His grace and ability and our dependence on Him. He wants complete and absolute surrender. He also wants passion, hunger and eagerness. He wants us to hunger and thirst for righteousness so that we will be filled with grace.
May grace mercy and peace be ours in full measure.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9 ESV)
For our sake, Jesus became poor, so that we can be rich. Rich in faith, love, grace, holiness, and divine presence. He suffered so that we will be sanctified, pure and holy. He bore our sins so that we can die to sin and live for righteousness. Glory to God, our God is awesome.
May we never take the grace of God for granted. May we all wash ourselves in the blood of the lamb that makes us clean and holy.
