With God, Nothing Shall Be Impossible

Published in Articles

Concluding in your heart that your God given task is impossible and giving up on it just because it is proving difficult for you to achieve or because it seems naturally impossible for you to accomplish, is proof of lack of trust and faith in God.  Faith is all about you continuing in righteous actions that are in line with your God given purpose even when it seems as if your actions are unlikely to yield the desired natural outcomes based on the persistent negative natural evidence that you keep seeing. The evidence we are meant to rely on in our walk of faith is in fact not the visibly seen negative ones (2 Corinthians 5:7).  Rather, the evidence we are meant to rely on is the positive spiritual outcome, which God has already established and concluded in our favour in the spirit realm by His supernatural power and expecting us to activate and bring into manifestation in the visible realm at the time appointed by Him through adherence to His faith process (Hebrews 11:1).


Faith is our activation key for bringing the spiritual outcome to the visible realm and hope is what keeps us in line of activation of the established goodness outcome that is already in the spiritual realm. Hope keeps us in vision of the goodness spiritual evidence at all times. And through envisioning the established spiritual good end result, we are able to remain strong and keep on marching forward in the line of faith. Faith does not indeed make things easy. But it keeps us in the righteous plan of God and in the path of all He has already made possible for us to achieve by His supernatural power. Through faith, we deactivate fear which cripples and we activate the spiritually finalised and bring it into manifestation in line with the Will of God. 


Our God given assignment is an assignment of faith. And we evidence faith through our continuous total surrender to God's Sovereign authority irrespective of the natural circumstances or situational outlook of things. If the assignment looks easy to achieve to begin with, then we will have no need for faith. We need faith because although the assignment appears impossible, it is already made possible for us to achieve by faith of God. Therefore, in all situations we must continually evidence our own faith in God by trusting God irrespective of the negative natural pictures that we keep seeing. And as proof of our trust in Him, continually believe that, God is faithful and because He is faithful, He can never let us down no matter what we see in the physical or hope to see and don't see. 


The evidence of God's own faith is Christ. Through Christ, we see that, God standards of faith for us is all to do with us remaining in total continuous obedience to His divine Will in complete selflessness and sacrificial mindset irrespective of the natural situation or circumstances we find ourselves in. Remaining in line of God's faithful standards is only possible if we continually fix our eyes on Christ who is evidence of God's own faith. It is only by fixing our eyes on Christ at all times that, we can remain in vision of the complete goodness outcome God has already achieved for us through Christ's finished work of faith, righteousness and remission for our sins on the cross of Calvary. 


As the redeemed, we are called and saved by grace of God to be benefactors of Christ's finished work. In Christ, we are adopted sons of God through Christ. And as His adopted sons, we are not called by God into labouring works or to be as slaves of some unfinished works (Romans 8:14-17). All works of righteousness and remissions are already fully finished and completed by Christ on the cross of Calvary.  And by reason of the atonement sacrifice He made for us on the cross for the remission of our sins, all things will surely continue to work together for the good of those in Christ no matter the natural situation we can possibly find ourselves in. As joint heirs of God's eternal life kingdom through the Sonship dominion of Christ, we are already fully established in success of eternal life. Therefore, through the success power of Christ and by our continuous total submission to Christ and His divine faith process, we are guaranteed to continue to be full of success in our entire life assignments to the glory of God. 


Our faith and believe in Christ as author and finisher of our faith is indeed proof of our believe in God's own faithfulness. Faith therefore, in this context is only genuine faith and in line with God's standards of faith, if it is a faith centred on continuous trust in God and complete reliance and believe in His Word irrespective of how our natural circumstances and situations makes it appear as if it will never come to pass. In addition, the reliance and trust we have in God, will also only be of a genuine kind if it is based on our soul conviction, that He is faithful and that, His faithfulness and love for us is already proven through His giving us Christ to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:8-11). Christ as evidence of God's faith is also our complete proof, that God's faithfulness standards is all about sacrificial love (Matthew 22:35-40). Operating in the divine loving standards of God is proof that we are in righteousness alignment with Him. 

The divine supernatural power of God, which conquers and overcome all as it is evidenced through Christ is love.  And God as LOVE and His power of love as He has clearly demonstrated for us through the Person of Christ, can never let us down or fail us. The love of God in the form of Christ revealed conquered and overcame all not by physical might or strength but by the sacrificial act of love He demonstrated for us on the cross. 


Faith as God made clear to us through Christ is not about physical conquest through our physical might and power. But all about submitting to God's holiness governing system and power of love in totality as proof of our faithful appreciation of the complete victory He afforded us in all realms through the might and power of His love, that He demonstrated for us in the form of the Person of Christ. Faith in God's standards is all about operating and moving in the power of His love to His utmost glory. And if we are truly in Christ who is evidence of God's love, the natural evidence that are constantly being projected to us by sight cannot stagnated us. And this is simply because, by the evidence of God's love, in the form of the indwelling of His Holy Spirit in us, we will keep on moving ahead by the power of His love spiritually in all realms and dominion even when we are feeling naturally perplexed, weary and tired. The movement of love is a movement of ultimate power and no power can stand in our way as long as God as love indwells in us and we indwell in Him as offsprings of Christ. The power of love is unfailing and by grace of love we cannot fail. Therefore, as long as we remain in oneness with God who is love, we are guaranteed to remain more than conquerors and endlessly successful in all our life endeavours and assignment. 


If it is ordained by God, then it is by His power of love, holy authority and dominion already made possible for you to achieve and manifest in the natural no matter how impossible looking it might seem visibly. For with God and by His power of love, nothing indeed shall be impossible. 

Your trust in God's love can never let you down. The situation may seem as if He does not care or that, He has abandoned you. But if you fix your eyes on Christ then you will clearly see that He cares more than you can ever comprehended. If indeed Christ died for you whilst you are yet in sin and an enemy of God, how much more is God now prepared to do for you now that you are alive in Christ and a son unto God through Christ? (John 1:12). God called you into His sonship dominion in Christ so you can keep on moving by His power of faith and love and never crippled by fear. Therefore, arise daily in Christly Sonship dominion and keep on moving in the line of faith as ordained for you by God. Evidence your faith in God by trusting Him daily and remain always submissive to the holy Will of Christ who is God's love revealed.  Keep marching ahead to the eternal life Promised Land and don't look back to Egypt. Stand daily by the Word of God and remain in all circumstances full of hope of success no matter the negative outlook of the natural picture. I pray that by grace of God, we will never be confined by emotions from fulfilling our assignments in Jesus mighty name.  Amen. 


Hebrews 12:1-3


​ "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 


Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 


For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds."

Do Not Despise Small Beginnings

Published in Articles

The fact that the beginning is small does not determine the size of the end. Therefore, do not despise or forsake small beginnings because everything that ends up BIG always starts small. 

 

Keep marching ahead in the path of righteousness and don't look back. He who began the good work in you has already finished it BIG on the cross for His majestic glory ahead of your conception and birth in the realm of time. Remain always faithfully optimistic and never doubtful or pessimistic.  God is faithful and His Word never fail. And He will surely make everything appear beautiful in your life in His own appointed time in the shape and form that He has already spiritually established and predetermined it, to His utmost glory and honour in Jesus mighty name. Amen. 

 

"For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth."

 

~ Zechariah 4:10

Spiritual Exercise

Published in Articles

The human addiction to various forms of dieting lifestyle and endless workout in the gym in today's world, is often fuelled by the notion that living such healthy lifestyle is a must for anyone seeking to prolong the effect of ageing and increase his or her chances of living longer. Whilst I am totally all for living a healthy lifestyle, the question however is, what is the point of having fleshy 'six packs' when the spirit man, which is the real being is actually dead and decomposed in sin. If we all agree that living a healthy lifestyle is necessary in order for us to have a prolonged healthy natural life, then it makes perfect sense to also agree that it as necessary for us to live a sinless heathy spiritual lifestyle in order to have eternal life. And if our real being is the spirit man, it makes no sense whatsoever to concentrate only on just taking care of the outer flesh, which will eventually dissolve back to dust no matter how well we take care of it.  


Feeding the outward man with such things that we consider healthy and   allowing the spirit man, which is our main being to wither away through feeding on sinful junk is clearly not a wise thing for us to do. We need to ensure that we keep our spirit man mind, soul, body and heart in good shape, by feeding it daily with heavenly Manna, which is the undiluted Word of God. We also need to engage in a daily fellowship of mind renewing exercise with God so, that we can be in righteous alignment with His Holy Spirit.      


As spiritual human beings, our main focus is meant to be on ensuring that we look good spiritually in line with God's own good looks standards and not just on achieving the defined human society outward 'good looks' appearance. Looking physically ‘good’ in line with society norm does not mean that a person looks good spiritually or that, he or she is in perfect spiritual good shape. A person who is spiritually out of shape will be continually dissatisfied with his or her outward appearance no matter how gorgeous looking others might consider his or her outward appearance to be. The only way of overcoming the futile endless obsessions of trying to fix our outward appearance and becoming satisfied with our total look, is by seeing the presence of God in us when we look in the mirror.  The mirror is a spiritual object and it does not lie. A person that is outside of the Holy Spirit of God can never be satisfied with the spiritual picture the mirror will keep beaming on his or her face irrespective of how physically good looking such person might appear to the ordinary eyes.


Feeling good in the real sense starts with us looking good in the spiritual sense. When we look good in the spirit, we will by all means continue to look outwardly radiant no matter the outward appearance of things. God as a God of real beauty does not do cosmetics surgery. God affords us His beautiful standards by saving our souls through Christ from the ugliness of sins when we repent and invite Christ into our lives to be our personal LORD and Saviour.  And once we are in Christ, God as the Holy Spirit keeps us beautiful daily and enables us by His special grace to live and maintain a good spiritual lifestyle through: 


- Daily nurturing our souls with His nutritious Word 


- Guiding us to follow the right physical diets for the perfect maintenance of our physical and mental well being


- Empowering us by His daily grace to live a disciplined sin free lifestyle to ensure we remain free from spiritual sinful contamination. 


Looking good physically is not the key to achieving true spiritual rest, satisfaction and joy. Our only means of having inner joy and becoming fully satisfied with our looks is if the Holy Spirit of God indwells in us. It is only by His presence in us that we will continually feel good regardless of outward appearance.  God's supernatural presence in us is all we need to remain strong and beautifully radiant no matter how challenging the natural situation we could possibly find ourselves in. Therefore, it is essential that you habitually engage yourself daily in holy exercise with God who is goodness itself through riotous worship, praise, fellowship and by feeding on His Word of life. It is only by your daily spiritual walk with Him, that you will genuinely look and feel good inwardly and outwardly, remain genuinely radiantly beautiful in His glorious presence, be of a good cheer and fully contented with the image of your spirit man that, the mirror invisibly projects to your spiritual eyes each time you look in the mirror. 


Psalms 90:14-17


"O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 


Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil. 

Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children. 


And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it."

The Terrible Old Adamic Nature

Published in Articles

"And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 

 

 

And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat" 

 

~ Genesis 3:9-12

 

The first Adam blamed his wife for his fall and he ended up judged and condemned by God (Genesis 3). The last Adam Christ, took the fall for His bride the Church, even though He is blameless. And at the mentioning of His name, every knee bows and all tongues confesses in heaven and on earth that He is LORD (Philippians 2:8-11). 

 

The word LORD, actually means husband. And a relationship can only work when the husband who is meant to be the lord in the relationship is filled with the Spirit of love, which is God (1 John 4:8-11). A woman is only meant to submit herself to a man that is submissive to the LORDSHIP of Christ who is the King of kings and LORD of lords (Ephesians 5:22-33). A man who is not submissive to the LORDSHIP of Christ is incapable of loving his wife selflessly in line with the ordained loving standards of God. A man who as mere flesh is outside of love, which is Christ revealed will only end up causing extreme discomfort to his household body that, he considers himself as head, lord and authoritarian ruler over. The flesh by nature is selfish, abusive, oppressive, obsessively controlling and blame centred. Therefore, it is impossible for a relationship to work if the man that is meant to be the head and lord in the relationship is a fleshy first Adam type who is selfishly blame focused and not selflessly love centred.

 

The old Adamic fleshy nature is a warfare centred nature and as a result, it can never produce peaceful outcomes. Due to old Adamic nature, the world today and particularly the Church arena is packed with several pain stricken internally wounded men and women who simply tolerate each other for religious status quo reasons and not because they genuinely care or love each other. Several women who although appear to be smiling on the outside, are in fact weeping on the inside. To make matters worse, most people in the Church arena who happens to find themselves in abusive relationships, often feels isolated due to lack of proactive support mechanisms for victims of abuse in the Church arena. The attitude of the Church to a great extent towards domestic violence is more or less that of sweeping it under the carpet and pretending no such things occurs. The abusers are also often encouraged with imbalanced flesh motivated sermons, which are masqueraded and presented as a Godly ordained inspired messages for maintenance of order and line of authority in the homes of people that, are supposedly in the body of Christ. And to top it all, the abused victims are usually made to carry the extra burden of having to pretend that everything is perfectly okay at the home front in order to fit in with man made abusive traditions in the Church arena that are made to appear as Godly ordained rules and governing authority for relationships. Sadly, due to flesh centred leaders and satanic influence, the Church arena that is meant to represent God's embassy of love on earth and as such, a place of refuge for the oppressed and an arena of healing for the broken hearted has turned out to be a breathing ground for wicked abusive oppressive spirits to thrive in. 

 

God as love remains forever a God of holy and perfect relationships. And as a God of relationships, He created us for peaceful relationships and not for fleshy centred warfare oriented relationships. We are born into relationships and conceived out of relationships. But relationships in reality sense can only work if it is rooted and centred in God as love and not in the flesh, which is anti-God who is love itself.  A relationship rooted and centred in the flesh can only lead to an outcome of hurt and pain and not the anticipated outcome of peace and heartfelt comfort, that people expect from their relationships. And when fleshy centred relationships between a man and a woman goes wrong, the unnoticed victims in most cases are the innocent children who happens to be born into the line of fire.

 

Relationship as the essence of life itself can either break you apart or mould and help you to be all that God has created you to be. A marital relationship for instance that, is formulated and rooted in the flesh will not only break you apart into pieces, but will most definitely turn out to be a terrible hindrance and obstacle in the way of you fulfilling your God given assignment and purpose in life.  Marriage is meant to be a holy union of peace and not a padlock that locks you in a bitter dead end so called wedlock. If the wedding is locked in sin and centred in the flesh, then the outcome of the union is bound to be bitter and painful  and not the sweet pleasure the parties to the marriage anticipated it will materialise before agreeing to the marital union. Therefore, it is important for those who are yet to be burnt by the fire of relationships to seek God's face carefully and not just jump into any kind of relationships with a supposedly Christian man or woman. Ladies, please seek God to give you a partner that has the last Adam Christ indwelling in him. Any choice made in the flesh is definitely a wrong one. It is in fact better for you to stay single than to just rush into a blame oriented warfare centred relationship out of desperation for a partner. And men, please seek Christ and die to self so you can be the man, husband and father God made you to be. It is actually Godly glorifying for a man as the head to take responsibility for his wife and family. There is no honour, peace or joy in abusing or endlessly blaming the one that is meant to be flesh of your flesh and bone of your bone for everything that appears to be wrong with your life. Taking the blame for your relationship and family affair and standing in position of responsibility is in itself a demonstration of power that commands much respect from he entire family body your are meant to be head and lord over. And ladies, when you come across God's chosen Christlike lord for your life, cherish and humble yourself before him and not humiliate him out of flesh arrogance, so that God who is LORD over all will favour you in all aspects of your life.

Love Not The World

Published in Articles

" For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 

 

 

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."

 

~ 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

 

God is a covenant making and covenant keeping God. God created us to eternally partake in His blessed dominion authority provided we remain in blood covenant relationship with Him as our Father and Creator (Genesis 1:26-28). Man became disengaged from God's dominion covenant of blessings and ended up entangled in a mystery babylonian covenant of sinfulness following the fall of the first man Adam into sins (Genesis Chapter 3, Romans 3:20-31). The covenant of sins placed man under a curse of death, which is judgement for sins. And to release mankind from the curse of death and restore us back again to His dominion blessings, God made His Word, which is His power of creation flesh in the form of the Person of Christ (John 1:1-14). Through Christ as God's Word of creation revealed, we are once again able to enter and remain in living partnership covenant relationship with God. The blessed partnership covenant agreement we are privy to enter into with God through Christ is not for the sake of building our own worldly empire.  It is for the sake of manifesting God's kingdom love for man on earth through preaching Christ as the only means of attaining salvation from sins and redemption from death (Acts 4:12). And when we fulfil our bit of the covenant agreement in the natural by sowing the seed of God's Word into souls, in the form of preaching Christ as man's only Saviour and Messiah, God fulfils His part in the supernatural by watering our seeds in the souls that we have planted it in to ensure it produces His pre-ordained plenteous harvest. 

 

The message of salvation and redemption through Christ as power of salvation is the key to activating and sustaining our faith in God (Romans1:16-17, 10:17). And it is precisely for this reason that the devils of this world inundates a genuine preacher of righteousness with all kinds of trials in order to discourage him or her from focusing on preaching the true Word of God to the lost souls of the world. Satan as chief of the devils does not only inundate the true elect of God with trials for the sake of discouraging them from preaching Christ as the truth, but he has also appointed his own ministers of sinfulness and worldliness whom he constantly showcase and masquerades to appear as preachers of righteousness. Worldly centred messages are diversion tactics used by Satan to ensure the focus, attention and desires of man remains continually fixed on the perishable things of his counterfeit worldly kingdom and not on the imperishable things of God's kingdom. The world is temporary but God's kingdom is eternal. Therefore, by focusing the human mind on the world, which is temporary, Satan not only seeks to prevent man from receiving God's eternal life covenant kingdom promises, but also seeks to ensure that man perishes with him eternally when God draws the final curtain on the world and destroys Satan's counterfeit world kingdom with brimstones of fire (Revelation 20:12-15). 

 

Satan's end times pyramid Egypt formulae economic system is specifically designed to ensure that the human mind remains focused on natural world survival and not on our soul survival. Satan takes evil advantage of the ongoing financial struggles suffered by man under his Egypt formulae financial system and uses it as means of diverting human attention away from hearing and embracing the true message of salvation and redemption through Christ. Unfortunately, due to the human desperation for financial breakthroughs in the end times spiritual Egypt babylonian world, Satan has managed to place several souls firmly under the spell of his repeated lies. The eyes of many have become covered with thick dark spiritual veil. And several have become addicted to only listening to so called preachers who ministers worldliness and promises of big financial payouts supposedly from God in exchange for the sowing of so called 'seeds of faith'.

 

Whilst I am fully convinced that God wants us to live in abundance and that He can enrich us on this earth beyond our wildest dreams, it is important that we do what the Bible says and seek first God's kingdom and trust in Him to add unto us all other things that He deems fit for us to have in our temporary world existence (Matthew6:33). It is essential that we by all means avoid making the grave mistake of prioritising having the perishable things of this world over and above the imperishable things that awaits us eternally in the kingdom of God. In order for us to sustain our lively hope and assurances of inheriting God's eternal life kingdom, the substance of our faith must continually remain centred on God's eternal life promises for our souls. Our utmost focus and desire in all situation and circumstances must always be to have and sustain our covenant relationship with God and not on the temporary things of this world. It is only by prioritising our relationship with God over and above everything else, that we will avoid becoming stagnated from spiritual locomotion due to worldly disappointments. 

 

God sees all that is going on in the world. He knows just how desperately wicked the devils are and He sees our daily struggles. He is mighty to save and deliver us from all the evil pranks of the devil. He is able to supply all our needs according to His riches and glory in Christ. He is able to sustain us in all the seasons of our lives. He is able to nourish us in the drought season and ensure that we blossom in winter. He is able to make a way for us where there seem to be none. He is able to make the impossible possible for us to achieve. He is our light and shield. He is all we need to remain more than conquerors in all situations and circumstances.  He can do exceedingly and abundantly much more than we can ever expect from Him.  In all things He remains now and forever the All in all. And as long as we love Him as the Word and not the world, He will in one way or another continually supply our needs in this world and keep us in His covenant Will of eternal life inheritance. 

 

The LORD as our Shepherd came from heaven to earth in the Person of Christ to make us permanent settlers of His everlasting dominion of green pastures (Psalm 23, Ezekiel 34:23-24). Christ as God's Spirit, blood and living water manifested in the flesh came from the invisible to the visible world to make us to be born again so that through our new birth in Him, we will be completely free from judgement of sin, which is death and united again with the Holy Spirit of God (John 3:3-8). In Christ, we are covenant sons of God and heirs to God's eternal life kingdom (John 1:12, 3:16). Through Christ as our Shepherd of life revealed, the devils cannot touch us and we cannot lack or be in want of our needs in any realms or dominion of our existence (John 10:10-11, Philippians 4:19). As adopted sons of God through Christ and heirs to God's kingdom, we remain exceedingly rich beyond the measure and quantification of man irrespective of our natural life financial situations and circumstances (Romans 8:14-17). And as long as we remain in Christ, no weapons of evil formed or fashioned against us by the wicked can ever prosper (Isaiah 54:17). 

 

Faithful is the LORD who has saved us from death by the covenant blood of Christ and reconciled us to His Holy Spirit of life. Faithful is our God who has fully completed the work of our salvation through the Person of Christ even before we came to conscious knowledge of sins and knowledge of need of redemption from sins through Christ. God has not called us to love the world but to manifest His love for the lost souls of the world through our active and faithful service as His adopted sons through Christ. Let us therefore live and do all things in the assurances of our sonship identity in Christ. Let us in all seasons of our lives trust God our Father as His faithful sons. Let us continually fix our eyes on Christ who as the covenant Word of God revealed in the flesh has made us overcomers of the world in Him. Let us remain active believers of God's Word in all circumstances and trust that He will fully recompense us with eternal life of peace, rest and joy for all that we go through in this world. 

 

God as our Redeemer by His graceful mercies has called us out of the world of darkness fear into His dominion of faith to witness and bear record and testimony of His demonstrated love for man through Christ. And God who by His mighty power delivered us from the evil covenant of this dark fallen world of sins and transported us into His marvellous light of life, which is Christ is able to always make a way for us where there seem to be no way (John 8:12, Colossians 1:12-13). In Christ, even though we are continually tried by the world, we are already by grace of God justified by the covenant blood of Christ and accepted by God as His beloved (Ephesians 1:2-6, Revelation 12:11).  Christ as the Word of God revealed is the anchor of our souls. And by His anchor power and dominion authority, we cannot sink into the sea world of afflictions. In Christ we have overcome the world to the glory of God (John 16:33). And greater always is the Christ in us than the fallen angels Luciferian devils that are in the world who are judged already by God and destined to eternally perish in the abyss lake of fire  (2 Peter 2:4-9, 1John 4:4, Revelation20:12-15). 

 

 To God always be all the glory now and everlastingly. Amen. 

 

" Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 

 

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

 

 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."

 

~ 1 John 2:15-17
