Make sure that your faith is not an idle, dead faith. Make sure you have works attached to your faith. It is by your works and fruits, that you prove that you are Christlike.
God is interested in your faith and your works. He wants you to have complete faith and complete works. Your works will always be an evidence of your faith but faith alone is dead. It is a deception. God wants us to live in complete submission to His will. He wants us to find out what pleases Him and do it with joy and pleasure. Let your faith be living and alive.
May the Lord give you the grace to love Him with all your heart, in Jesus name.
The greatest key to victory is love for God and man. When the Lord said Love the Lord with all your heart, he revealed great truth. Once your love for God is pure and you love Him with purity and innocence, you will taste the reality of His love, power and presence. Love is the greatest so put love first in all that you do,
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14 NKJV)
It is very essential and vital for us to always pursue peace. Regardless of our personal differences, we should always show peace to others. Peace will come when we show love and justice to others.
We must also pursue holiness. This Scripture says that without holiness no one will see the Lord. If you want to experience victory, always pursue holiness. Hunger and thirst for righteousness. That is the key to true victory.
When you have learnt the secret of walking in the whole counsel of the word of God and in complete union with the will of God, you will be walking in the level of holiness that pleases God. You will experience the glory of God, when your heart is totally yielded to Him.
In complete surrender, submission and humility, we will find victory. That is the mindset of a Christian warrior.
Messages and Revelations from Christ to the Church
The Lord spoke to me and said, “ Jesus groomed Himself to hear from the Father.
Jesus had an excellent relationship with the Father, and the Holy Spirit when He lived on earth. He was filled with the Holy Spirit and was constantly led by the Holy Spirit. Those who are led by the Spirit of God, are the sons of God.
Do you groom yourself to hear from the Holy Spirit? Do you spend time reading the word of God, and fellowshipping with God in prayer, praise, thanksgiving and worship?
Do you really crave the gifts of the Holy Spirit, or are you content with mediocrity? Do you have passion for the presence of God? If you do not, start grooming yourself today. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart.
It is not possible to be a victorious, successful Christian without the voice of the Holy Spirit, leading you and guiding you especially in very important decisions. The word of God is key and word if God is made up of the written word and the voice of the Holy Spirit.
He is constantly talking to us to help us, guide us, comfort us, uplift us and warn us. We simply need to learn how to hear and discern His voice and walk with Him.
Revelation 3:21 talks of those who are victorious and the rewards of being victorious.
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. Revelation 3:21
We are called to be spiritual warriors and to be victorious believers and there is no way we can do this by our own power and voice or thoughts. Our thoughts sometimes deceive and mislead us because we live in a fallen world where Satan operates.
God wants us to groom ourselves to Hear His voice through His Holy Spirit as He speaks from Heaven.
May you always be led by the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God in Jesus name.
And when he came near, he asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, let me recover my sight. ” And Jesus said to him, “Recover your sight; your faith has made you well. (Luke 18:40 – 18:42 ESV)
When you go to God in prayer, know exactly what you want God to do for you. Do not be timid and confused in prayer – be bold, confident and expectant! God loves the expectant, persistent, unyielding, patient faith.
Do not loose hope, rather, persevere until you receive. Be a Christian warrior not a Christian coward. God does not like cowardice – He loves bravery and boldness, so be a brave warrior.
May the Lord’s great grace visit you with great power and great glory in Jesus name
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. (Colossians 1:11 ESV)
Never depend on your own power. Power and mercy belong to God. All power in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. God is the only one that can strengthen you with power.
It is very natural for man to rely on himself, and try to save Himself without God. Eve decided to believe that God does not want good for them. She tried to save herself outside God and she fell. The same thing still happens over and over again.
Look at the case of Sarah and Abraham. God had already promised them a child, yet she convinced Abraham to have a child by Hagar. She depended on herself instead of God.
It is only God that can strengthen us with power in the inner man. With power comes ability. It is a function of the grace of God and man’s power is of no use all.
Is there any area of your life that you are struggling with? God is the one that knows all. He can help you with whatever it is that seems very difficult. He can help you to be a better husband, wife, mother, father, son, daughter, son, friend, employee, entrepreneur.
He knows what we need even before we ask Him. He is the one that gives the power to make wealth. He gives knowledge and skill. He gives talents.
And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts. Exodus 3:2-5
God is all powerful and glorious He can make you what He wants you to be today. Simply rest in Him and yield to Him in complete surrender.
May God strengthen you with all power, according to His glorious might.
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. (Colossians 1:9 – 1:10 ESV)
Being filled with the knowledge of God’s will is very vital and essential to our Christian growth and walk with God. Knowledge, spiritual wisdom and understanding precede the ability to please God.
We cannot bear complete fruit without having complete or thorough knowledge of the word of God – discerning between good and evil. Lack of knowledge can actually turn things upside down in our minds and we will be displeasing God, thinking that we are being holy and righteousness
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop–a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Matthew 13:8
Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. acts 18:24
For instance, the Bible clearly tells us not to be unequally yoked with idol worshippers but Christians ignore this, and try to prove that they know more than God.
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
The Bible tells us not to eat with believers who live like unbelievers but we wine and dine with unbelieving believers.
But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. 1 Corinthians 5:11
I never even knew the full meaning of this Scripture until the Lord spoke to me about people in my life that had unclean aura and garments, He explained to me that being intimate with idol worshipers or so called believers that are idol worshippers, stain our inner garments,, so it is actually for our own protection.
The Bible tells us not to forsake the gathering of believers but some of us try to prove that we know more than God. They rationalize not going to Church often. There is nothing to rationalize – if you are not sick, or have a pressing emergency, go to Church. That is after the coronavirus. Unfortunately, most Churches cannot really open normally like before.
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrew 10:25
The summary is that we can think that we know the word of God, and are being holy, yet we disobey very clear instructions in the Bible because we are interpreting the Bible with our own minds without the Holy Spirit. So we need our Holy teacher – the Holy Spirit, everyday to teach us , lead us and guide us. He is the spirit of wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
So, I pray that we may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will, in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of Him, everyday. Amen.
Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist. Isaiah 11:5 NKJV
The right spiritual passion is passion, thirst and hunger for the word of God and righteousness.
Constant desire for the will of God, righteousness and obedience will mean that you have put things in the right perspective and focus. Walking in the right focus, order and perspective will lead to bearing fruits even to a hundredfold!
May we always hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
Amen (Jude 1:24:25 NKJV)
God is able to keep us from stumbling, glory to Him always. He is the source and provider of constant grace. He sent His son Jesus to die for, us so that we will have the grace to keep away from stumbling and wallowing in the miry and sinking clay of sin. Even if we sin, God is able to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all sin and the effects of sin. This is because our sin bearer Jesus was crucified for us. We have a merciful God who has forgiven all our sins and His mercies are new every day. He is the father of mercies.
May we always run to Him for constant grace so that the blood of Jesus will be exalted above sin and death.
