No More Pain – A Place Called Heaven

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. ” (Revelation 21:4 ESV)

There is a day in the future when God will set us completely free from pain, death, sorrow, fear, torment, disappointment and other bad things.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4

There is a day that victory will be complete and death is completely defeated. There will no longer be anything that makes us sin or causes us to stumble.

For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 1 Corinthians 15:22 – 27

Right now, we live with sin and deception and as long as those two are here on earth, there will surely be judgement, pain and death. Judgement even begins in the house of God.

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:54

Regardless or who you are are, what you think you are in Christ, you can fall, if you are not humble. Of course when you fall, there will be consequences that feel painful but are actually acts of God’s grace and love. Of course when you fall, God’s grace is available to pick you up again.

Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12

God disciplines us so that we will not be condemned together with the world.

So the good news is that there is a place called Heaven, A very wonderful place filled with love, joy and no pain. There, God will wipe away every pain and tear from our eyes.

We will even forget that we ever felt pain or even if we remember, there will be no trauma or stress attached to that memory. Any how, we will be very happy.

Thoughts of Heaven should fill us with thanksgiving and rejoicing. We should rejoice because our names are written in heaven,

However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20

God has shown me visions of Heaven and I have also had glimpses of Heaven. They are instantaneous and there is no distance. One moment I am here and the next moment, I am in a trance, in Heaven.

Heaven is real! God is real! Praise God. There is a day of constant love, peace, joy, glory and laughter waiting for us in Heaven.

First Cause And Second Cause Of Defeat

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin (Romans 4_7 - 4_8 ESV).png

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin (Romans 4:7 – 4:8 ESV)

God has cancelled our sins and forgiven us. He took our punishments, nailed them to the cross and healed us. What then is the problem? Why are we still suffering from past ancestral, parental and personal sins and mistakes. Sins that we have renounced and forsaken. Why?

Our problem is the second cause not the first cause. I hope what I have said is not confusing. We spend all of our time focused on the first cause but the first cause is not the problem. Our past sins and mistakes (which is the origin and first cause of defeat) were swallowed, crushed and cancelled by the blood of Jesus – that word is settled in Heaven forever. Why then is the devil playing football with us and dribbling us? Why is he kicking us around?

He is having an upper hand because of two things:

1. We refuse to be filled with the Holy Spirit

2. Un-repented sins

However, I have realized that most of the time, the main problem is that we are not filled with the Holy Spirit. If we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we will be led by the Holy Spirit and He will reveal the hidden and unconfessed sins that we might not even be aware of. He will reveal hindrances to our prayers.

Confessed, repented sins is not the problem because Jesus bore our sins on the cross. Some people will tell you is it because you do not have faith in the finished work of the cross- wrong. Faith itself is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and it is given. It is in measures and grows by the power of the Holy Spirit. You have faith in Jesus and His blood, that is why you are born again by His Spirit and His precious blood. The real problem is that you are not filled with the Holy Spirit.

Any faith you want to have now, should not be a foundational faith but a faith that takes you to greater heights. A faith that has actions of prayer, thanksgiving, praise, worship, rejoicing in and celebrating Christ’s victory, good deeds, waiting upon the Lords and seeking His face. This kind of faith is the type that leads you to depend on the Holy Spirit alone and be filled and led by Him. Your focus must be on the solution and the fullness of the Holy Spirit is the solution.

If someone pushes you into a deep well by mistake or even on purpose and you are in the well obsessing about how you got into the well and who pushed you into the well, you will never device a solution that will enable you come out of the well. You are defeated and are not being creative anytime you focus on past errors and mistakes.

You can learn lessons from your past mistakes through reflections but you should not dwell in, and live in the past or the cause of your problems. If you are trapped in that well and you focus on the solution, you will eventually plot your way out of that well and know victory. Jesus is our solution and the Holy Spirit is also our solution. Focus on how to be filled with the Holy Spirit and how to have an active working relationship with Him.

We must be forward looking not backward looking. The Holy Spirit is the living word. He is the now and true reality of God. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will truly know and experience victory – every knee will bow to Jesus.

I have noticed that when I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I see my afflictions leaving me in the dream. I see myself repelling and throwing up the evil substance causing the affliction. However, if I stop spending time in His presence, waiting upon Him and seeking Him, the Holy Spirit’s life giving presence in me reduces and I leave myself partially unprotected – I get oppressed or afflicted. So, I try to wait upon Him daily and constantly.

Sicknesses are spiritual substances and the presence of God is also a spiritual substance. When He fills us up, every other negative substance must leave and die off. Spirits and demons must also detach themselves from our aura and flee. They cannot remain when God is personality present – I mean when His manifest presence is present. Sicknesses and demons do not give rest but God’s presence gives rest, comfort, help, joy and peace.

The LORD replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest–everything will be fine for you.” Exodus 33:14 New Living Translation

The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 NIV

The second cause of our problem is the reason why we are not healed or delivered. The first cause which is past, confessed, sins has been destroyed by the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross. We need to focus on being filled with the Holy Spirit – our helper, garment and comforter. If we do not need Him God would not have sent Him as a precious gift. We need to partner with Him and not ignore Him.

Those who pay the price by waiting upon the Lord and seeking Him daily for fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit will be refreshed and empowered. They are the ones who will truly taste the fullness of the victory that Jesus purchased for us on the cross by His sacrificial death. We were redeemed so that we can die to sin and be filled with the Holy Spirit. We must never forget that.

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.

Bought With A Price

Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ. You were bought with a price. (1 Corinthians 7:22 – 7:23 ESV)

Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ. You were bought with a price. (1 Corinthians 7_22 - 7_23 ESV).png

We were bought with a price and that price is the precious blood of Jesus. Our salvation is not common or ordinary, it is glorious and mighty. We need to cherish the precious blood of Jesus that bought us, redeemed us, saved us, washed us, cleanses us and will always cleanse us of sins and afflictions.

The blood of Jesus is powerful and eternally effective to cleanse us of every impurity and uncleanness.

Don’t Despise Me, Worship Me!

For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, (Revelation 5_9 NKJV)

Copy of For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, (Revelation 5_9 NKJV)

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your bloodOut of every tribe and tongue and people and nation. (Revelation 5:9 NKJAnd have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:10 NKJV)

Jesus Christ was slain and by His sacrificial death and blood, He redeemed us to God by His precious blood. God saved us with His own blood. He healed us, washed us, transformed us and set us free – glory to God. The blood of Jesus has set us free. Regardless of the report that you hear the word of God is true and constant. Let God be true and every man a liar.

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. Acts 20:28

And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

The twenty four elders in Rev elations 5:8 fell down before the Lamb and worshiped Him with musical instruments. That is the attitude in heaven and we, as pilgrims on earth who are citizens of heaven must constantly emulate and imitate the heavenly worship and order. We must constantly worship Christ and celebrate Him for the redemption and forgiveness He achieved for us on the cross – nothing else will do. We must be loyal and obedient in thanksgiving, praise and worship. We might not understand our salvation fully until we get to heaven but we must rejoice in it and celebrate it as an act of faith and obedience.

The four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 5:8 NKJV)

We must therefore always rejoice and celebrate God’s love, mercy and grace because our salvation is a great and powerful salvation. The sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross and our redemption should constantly evoke thanksgiving, love, worship, praise, respect, honor and obedience towards God. We must constantly meditate on this good news of our salvation that builds faith, love, praise and thanksgiving towards God.

The mercy and grace of God is not a small thing at all but when we do not meditate on the good news of our salvation, our minds will shrink and look down on it. We will turn back and begin to look at self, the world and the devil and magnify circumstances instead of God. Once we begin to look down on it, faith, thanksgiving, rejoicing, celebration, love and obedience will reduce. It is possible to look down on the blood of Jesus and despise Him even as Christians. Ingratitude comes from despising the blood of Jesus and a lot of Christians are ungrateful. God said that He will not be pleased with anyone that turns back.

What, then, of those who despise the Son of God? who treat as a cheap thing the blood of God’s covenant which purified them from sin? who insult the Spirit of grace? Just think how much worse is the punishment they will deserve! 30 For we know who said, “I will take revenge, I will repay”; and who also said, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God! Hebrews 10:29 – 31

Whoever despises the word brings destruction on himself, but he who reveres the commandment will be rewarded. Proverbs 13:13

And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back. Hebrews 10:38

There was a time I did not know that I was ungrateful and that I despised Christ (the word of God) but the Lord took me in a vision and showed me that I was being ungrateful. At that time, the word of God, the gospel or the good news was very scanty in me. I knew Christ’s law but I did not know the good news. I had heard of it but it was not living in my heart. As a result, I was not rejoicing in my salvation or celebrating my freedom by the blood of Jesus. Jesus then took me in a vision to heaven and told me to worship Him instead of despising Him. He said to me, ‘don’t despise me, don’t despise me, worship me!’ Then I understood that we can think that we love God so much yet, if we reject the good news, we are despising Him instead of loving Him.

But don’t be glad because the evil spirits obey you; rather be glad because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20

We must constantly rejoice in and celebrate Jesus and His great salvation that came through His precious blood. We have enough reason to be grateful and thankful towards God. Our salvation alone is enough to make us rapturous in praise, thanksgiving and worship regardless of our circumstances. Nothing compares to our salvation – not even miracles and all the wealth in this world. Our constant source of joy should be our salvation. We should be clean from the inside out. Jesus told His Disciples to rejoice because their names are written in heaven.

The same applies to us. We must rejoice because our names are written in Heaven – that is not a small thing at all. Those who are constantly sad are not rejoicing. They are looking at their circumstances and problems instead of looking at the word of God and their great salvation. When you focus on your problems, you will be sad and defeated and will find it difficult to celebrate Christ and His great salvation.

If you think that God is small and your salvation is small, then that will be your reality but if you magnify God, His power and your salvation, you will experience glory. When you spend time waiting upon the Lord in worship, thanksgiving, praise, celebration, rejoicing, faith and petitions asking for the fullness of God’s Holy Spirit, you will be filled with the Holy Spirit.

May God give us the grace to constantly seek His face and wait upon Him while clinging to the good news of salvation and redemption.

Jesus the son of God who died and washed us from our sins is worthy of praise, adoration, glory, dominion and thanksgiving. He deserves our honor and respect.

He shines brighter than the heavens in glory and wonder. His power is beyond understanding and His beauty is dazzling. Our great and mighty savior is a precious and rare gem. He is the ultimate prize that we must pursue because under His canopy and presence life reigns supreme.

Jesus Defeated Powers And Gods

1Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. – Colossians 2_15.png

Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. – Colossians 2:15

Jesus Christ defeated principalities and powers and triumphed over them. He defeated them and gave them a resounding knockout. He is the one that has the key and power over death and the world of the dead.

To live in this reality is to know success and victory. This is the good news of our salvation and there is power in it. This good news will chase away fear and timidity and bring faith. There is power in the blood of Jesus to save those who have determined to have faith and confidence.

God is not waiting for you to be perfect and mature before He can heal and deliver you. Most of the people that Jesus and the apostles healed and delivered were not perfect. They were like you and me. They were believers running and marching towards the promised land and Christian maturity.

And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. James 5:15

This Scripture above is nor referring to perfect people but sincere people who are striving and determined to please God and get to the mountain top of Christian maturity. If they have committed sins means that it might have been their sins that led to the sickness or it might not be their sins. However, if they have committed sins they will be healed and forgiven at the same time not wait for when they are perfect before they are healed. If the elders wait for when they are perfect for them to be healed, they could be dead and never be healed or get mature. They will not fulfill their destinies on earth.

So many have afflictions that they were born with and afflictions that came from sins from past lives as unbelievers or even afflictions from sins that they committed as Christians but they had renounced and forsaken those sins. That means that the blood of Jesus has cleansed them of those sins because the Bible says that when we confess our sins we are forgiven. All they need to do is stand on the word of God and wait upon the Lord with faith, worship, love, praise, thanksgiving, rejoicing, celebration, petitions and supplications.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. 2 Peter 1 :9

The truth is that a lot of people are not suffering because of sins that they personally committed. A lot are suffering as a result of ancestral and parental sins and some are suffering as a result of no sin at all by themselves, their ancestors and their parents just like the man that was born blind. They are just victims of evil religions and the evil systems of this world where some people are sacrificed for others by evils priests around the world to sustain the world.

The world is made up of priests, victims and beneficiaries. that is how the god of this world rules through various religions that have one thing in common – darkness and death. They receive life by sacrificing others and by death. Death the god of this world rules through death popularly known as sacrifice.. The unbelievers worship death. The Lord has taken me in visions and trances to show me their kingdoms and many celebrities belong there. Knowingly or unknowingly, they are operating from that kingdom. Their kingdoms appear to look beautiful but are rubbish compared to Heaven.

Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty. Psalm 74:20

Our sins are forgiven and those kingdoms and powers have been defeated and are beneath Christ. We can be delivered because Jesus has already delivered us. If we are led by the Holy Spirit and seek the root cause of our problems, we will be very shocked at the discovery.

We are absolutely nothing without the Holy Spirit who is the source and giver of the word of God. We must depend on Him. We must seek Him to know the root cause of our problems and the solution to our problems and how to pray effectively to be delivered and healed. He does not use formula and he does not generalize. We are all unique individuals with different histories and pasts. Only Him can help us out.

Many years ago, I struggled with certain afflictions and I kept thinking:

  1. That it was my personal sin  that caused my afflictions
  2. That I had to be perfect in order to be delivered and restored

These were false thoughts originating from self. The Holy spirit destroyed all my false assumptions and false thoughts before I could be healed and delivered. They were all obstacles to my faith and restoration. He told me that it was not my sin that caused my afflictions and He also said to me, ‘all  you need is faith.’ He told me this several times and when I obeyed Him and started walking in faith with thanksgiving, praise and rejoicing, my afflictions became past tense.

I have always been someone who did not struggle to love others. I was not perfect, blameless or mature as a christian but I was trying my best to walk in love and had the desire to please God. However, I did not have faith and God rebuked me several times for it and taught me how to walk in faith expressing itself in celebration of Christ’s love, rejoicing in the Lord, gratitude, worship and persistence. Faith without thanksgiving, gratitude, worship, rejoicing in the Lord, praise and waiting upon the Lord is an error. Faith must express itself in actions. You know, understand, thank God and live it.

Walking in love is not an excuse to reject faith – that is imbalance and come from pride. We need faith as an act of humility because works alone did not save us and cannot save us. When I was not walking in faith the Lord told me I was proud.

When we reject the works of Jesus on the cross and His power and grace and refuse to hear  from the Holy Spirit, we are proud. Remember that other religions have good works but they reject faith and the good news that God forgave them and healed them by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

What is the difference between a believer that does not believe and rejects the good news and an unbeliever that does not believe and rejects the good news. We must be very careful. There are many unbelieving believers and we must not be counted among them. They claim to believe with their lips but their hearts reject the good news that we are forgiven and healed. they are the ones with stone hearts as depicted in the parable of the sower. They refuse to rejoice in God’s salvation and celebrate it. They also attack anything that has to do with faith.

Some people have not yet understood the concept of balance in the word of God. They do not understand the mystery of the whole counsel of the word of God. Man has the tendency towards single vision or double vision but God has multiple visions and we must be like Him. We must not cling to only one or two subjects in the Bible and forget the others.

Some people cling to just love and good works and some people cling to just faith. Some people cling to both love and faith in double vision but forget other subjects like prayer, praise, persistence, patience, thanksgiving, intercession, being filled and led by the Holy Spirit and waiting upon the Lord.

If you study the armor of God, you will observe that it is not one or two. The armor is many. Faith is there and righteousness is there but there are other armors that we need in order to be complete and if we do not put on the complete armor of God we will be defeated and not victorious.

Faith as an armor is very vital and must never be neglected because without faith it is impossible to please God. Any time I preach on faith, some work based warriors will get very uncomfortable and angry but they are being short sighted. If you focus only on works and forget faith, prayer, worship and waiting upon the Lord, you are not imitating Christ because Jesus and Paul had giant faith, wisdom and revelation of the word and prayed. They were also led by the Holy spirit.

Can you pray without faith and the direction of the Spirit? Are you led by the Spirit? Do you hear from the spirit?  Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Have you shut out the Holy Spirit and His good news because you focus only on your works and ignore the works of Jesus? Examine yourself, your belief and your works and fall in line with the whole counsel of the word of God.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6

The Holy Spirit told me that faith is part of being clean and putting on your white garment. The white garment is the word of God and we must put on the whole counsel of the word of God not just good works or ‘righteousness’. Your righteousness and holiness is not complete without faith and the direction of the Holy Spirit. Jesus and Paul had faith and were constantly led by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross is the one and only foundation and if you reject that foundation, you will fall in the day of trial because only the blood of Jesus can set you free and heal you even as you show gratitude to God but walking in perfect love.

You can be tested for the word’s sake and for not having faith. If your faith is not pure, you will open the door to the devil and trials. The same word that saiid, ‘love one another as I have loved you,’ is the same word that said, ‘your sins have been forgiven. He took our sins, sicknesses and sorrows, He carried our punishments and by His stripes we are healed.’

And they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away. Mark 4:17

That the trial of your faith (much more precious than gold which is tried by the fire) may be found unto praise and glory and honor at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7

Why do we choose which word to accept and walk in? Faith means confidence in God and His word and it is a way of understanding. We must accept the whole counsel of the word of God including the good news. We should not accept some and reject some – that is lack of wisdom. Love is a fruit and faith is a fruit. However there are many fruits that grow through the word of God and the Holy Spirit and we must have all of them.

Remember that in the parable of the sower, the seeds that fell on good soil produced good fruits to a hundred fold. The fruits of the Holy Spirit are also fruits of the word of God. The son of man plants His word by His Holy Spirit on earth who is the source and giver of the word of God.

If you reject the word, you reject the Holy Spirit who is the giver. We need the seed of the Spirit which is the word of God in our minds in order to bear fruit. Your fruitfulness is determined by how scanty or full His word is in you. You cannot bear fruit without the word of God. The dwelling place of the word of God is the mind and it is the mind that bears fruit.

The Holy Spirit who is in our hearts is the Spirit of faith, wisdom, understanding, revelation, grace and mercy. He is the one who plants His word or thoughts in our minds through our spirits where He lives. We can either reject or accept those seeds, thoughts or words.

“You stubborn people! You are heathen at heart and deaf to the truth. Must you forever resist the Holy Spirit? That’s what your ancestors did, and so do you! Acts 7:51

Do not reject Christ’s foundation and faith even as you strive to walk in perfect love. Find out what pleases the Lord. Love pleases Him and faith pleases Him among other things like humility, prayer, persistence, being filled and led by the Spirit etc. You started by faith and God’s grace and cannot finish by yourself with your good works alone.

Never forget what Christ has done for us by His sacrifice and always believe the good news that tells you that your sins are forgiven and by His stripes you are healed. That is humility and part of obedience, holiness, cleanliness, righteous, blamelessness and pleasing God.

Develop multiple visions of the word of God and reject the tendency and inclination towards single or double vision. Be balanced and you will see your enemies collapse around you in complete defeat. Have faith in God, His word and His good news of salvation and redemption – the blood of Jesus has set us free and healed us. Thank you Jesus! Amen.

The son of God that was preached to us was a Yes. He is the yes to all God’s promises. This Scripture is a reminder that we should always think positively about God and Christ. We must never doubt His love and ability to help us.

Jesus came as Yes, and forgave us all our sins. He defeated death, hell, the grave and sin. He brought grace and by that grace we have overcome and can overcome if we persist in faith, prayer and righteousness.

May we be fully surrendered to His will and purpose for our lives in complete obedience and love. May His grace, light, mercy and love be our crowning glory in Jesus name.

You Will See Those Egyptians No More

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. Exodus 14:13

Stand Firm

This Scripture is just so wonderful to our Spirits. We are commanded to stand firm. We must stand firm in the unyielding belief and foundation that the blood of Jesus has set us free. We are free – no contractions. The enemy will only try to bully us into thinking that we are still slaves of sin, death and punishments but we are not. We only need to grow in our redemption, love, hope and faith

We are redeemed, forgiven, free children of the most high God. That is why we will go to heaven when we die. We are already citizens of heaven and those who are filled with His Spirit experience heaven every day. His presence is Heaven and brings heaven to reality. The kingdom of God is within us but we will not experience that reality if we are not constantly filled with His glory.

We are free. If we were not free from our sins or forgiven, we would not look forward to heaven. The fact that we believe that we will go to heaven means that we have acknowledged that we are forgiven and do not have to pay for our sins in hell, purgatory or any other place.

We are healed by the punishment he suffered,

made whole by the blows he received. Isaiah 53:5

Stand firm in your faith and belief. Our sins and punishments were cancelled by the punishments that Jesus suffered on the cross for us. We do not have to pay twice. Do not let the devil rob you by making you think you have to pay again, you do not. Fight till the end and hold on till the end in unwavering conviction, expectation and hope. Cling to the healthy word of God that sets your soul free from lies and deception. Let His life giving words dwell richly in you.

Do not believe that you will pay in purgatory – that means you have rejected the sacrifice of Jesus and the power of His precious blood. When you try to pay for your sins by yourself you end up rejecting grace and embracing death. You can never pay for your sins or achieve salvation by your own efforts, punishments and blood. Embrace the blood of Jesus and believe in His eternal redemption.

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid. The devil will try to overwhelm you with so many red seas and giants. He will try to make you fear and doubt your redemption but do not be afraid. Hold your peace and believe in God’s saving grace that has set you free and sets you free. Reject doubt and fear and trust in Him who loved you so much and sent His son to die in your place.

You will see the deliverance of the Lord

As you trust in God and cling to His word in faith, persistence, praise and obedience, you will see the deliverance of the Lord. Never give up on God and on your faith. Hold on to God’s word and mercy even with your dying breath. He is the deliverer and will never disappoint those who have faith in Him and cling to Him for help.

You will see the Egyptians no more

The enemies, afflictions, problems and punishments you see, you will see them no more as you worship Him, thank Him, praise Him and rejoice in Him. Do not look at the enemy but at the power of God and the blood of Jesus. Focus on His ability and do not focus on self and the ability of self. The ability of self is a mirage and a delusion. Every good and perfect present comes from God.

Realize the bigness of God and the littleness of your problems. As you grow in faith and dependence on God – humbly praying for the infilling of the Holy Spirit, you will see those Egyptians and giants no more. All you will see will be the glory of God.

The LORD has promised that he himself will be a wall of fire around the city to protect it and that he will live there in all his glory.” Zechariah 2:5

He will dwell in you in all His glory. Amen.
