Triumphant Daily In Christ

Published in Articles
Emotions are barriers to our devotions towards God. In order for us to be devotional in fellowship, prayer and worship, we must avoid becoming crippled and stagnated by emotional feelings arising from negative thoughts about the past and fearful thoughts about what tomorrow is likely to bring.

Grace Is At The Heart of Righteousness

Published in Articles

God's grace is not for the sake of binding us in sin, but for the sake of delivering us from sins, and keeping us delivered.

Temptation is the one major avenue for falling back into sin, and when it comes to temptation, none of us are immune from temptations. But by grace, we can overcome temptations, and remain in the path of righteousness.

We overcome temptations by yielding our entire members to Christ, in appreciations of grace and as evidence of our desires to remain in Him as righteousness itself revealed, and separated from sins.

Evidence that, we are living under grace and no longer under wrath is in our desire to abstain from sin and not to continue in sin. The desire to continue in sin is in itself proof that the spirit man is still dead to righteousness, and subject still to wrath. God's grace was activated and afforded to us through His righteousness, and God's righteousness manifested by, which we have His grace is Christ (Jeremiah 23:5-6). Therefore, anyone who propagates a notion of grace that is void of righteousness or that encourages continuation of sin under a so called argument of grace is not of God, because at the heart of grace, is God's righteousness. As such, grace and righteousness are inseparable.

God's grace indeed abounds with us, in all situation, but let us be careful not to abound in sin because grace abounds with us. Let us be desirous daily to remain in God's righteousness, which is Christ. And, let us daily seek God's face to deliver us from temptations and to keep us delivered from falling back into sin through wilful fall into temptations under the excuse that we are covered by grace! Grace does not cover sin. It covers the sinner that, is willing to let go of sin and indwell in the righteousness of God, which is Christ Jesus.

Let go of sin, remain in righteousness, which is Christ so that the grace of God can continually abound with you!

Romans 6:1-15

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid."

Meditating On The Power of Worship

Published in Articles

When worship takes over, worry disappear! My worship belongs to the LORD God Almighty. The Omnipotent Invisible Mighty Warrior. In His presence, my joy shall remain everlastingly full. With my worship, I will exalt and reverence my Christ my Saviour. With my praise, I will glorify the King of kings. With my songs, and highest praise, I will lift up the holy name of the LORD of hosts in the highest.

The LORD Jesus reigns forever. His dominion is from everlastingly to everlastingly. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is my defence, what can man do to me? My praise and worship cannot be hindered by worry. My worship is evidence of my surrender to the sovereignty of the living God. Worship is proof of my spiritual victory. And with worship, I no longer wage war against the enemy for victory but waging war from a position of victory!

My worship is manifestation of God's glory upon my life. It is an expression of presence His joy in me. With worship I conquer sorrow. With worship, I delete worry. With worship, my soul is in good delight in the land of the living. With worship I will be full of the joy of the LORD, and the joy of the LORD shall always be my strength. No spiritual weapon of the evil dark forces can stand against my worship. Worship keeps me in the presence of the LORD. And by His grace, I will remain standing in the position of worship and praise in all circumstances, giving glory unto whom all glory is due.

With my relentless hosannah praise, I will continually remain more than a conqueror. With my worship, no wall of Jericho or red sea can stand in my way. The worshipper of the LORD shall not suffer sorrowful lamentations. The LORD is my whole armour and shield, and in His presence my soul is in good defence. His praise and worship shall not depart from my mouth. I will remain head bowed to the LORD in worship all of my days and for eternity. With my worship, He will keep me in His presence to worship Him at all times in spirit and in truth. The LORD is the defence of His worshippers. And those that worship the living God in spirit and in truth shall never be put to shame.

Only the living can worship the living God. Let the living souls arise and give praise unto whom all holy praise is due. Those that are in the grave cannot worship the living God. They worship but they know not what or who they worship. They worship in a state of unconsciousness. But those that worship the LORD shall worship Him in consciousness of soul, spirit and, with a heart full of passionate love for Him.

The LORD God Omnipotent is a God of relationship. He is not a God of synchronised, vicious circles religious activities or perpetual darkness oriented veiled feasts that are masqueraded as righteous festivals. The holy LORD God our Righteousness is not into feasts-of veils or veiled-feasts! He seeks for man to enter into relationship with Him through Christ so, that we can know Him, and worship Him in consciousness of our soul, and in spirit and in truth.

The LORD God of Abraham is a covenant making and covenant keeping God. The mighty King of glory is life itself. By His grace, He released His living breath to the earth to resurrect us from the graveyard of dry bones back into His holy presence. The living breath of the LORD God Almighty is Christ. And those that are in Christ shall know the One and only true God and, worship Him in spirit and truth to the delightfulness of their souls. Let all that has His living breath give the LORD a worthy praise and worship. Let the living saints of the LORD arise with praise and worship! Let those that are in the land of the living exalt the holy name of the LORD in the highest. The LORD God Omnipotent reigns everlasting. His dominion endures for ever. Let His saints proclaim His glory across the earth. Let the living saints worship the LORD in the beauty of His holiness in the land of the living now and for ever. Amen.

Psalms 103:1-22

"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul."

Food For Thoughts - Awake To Righteousness!

Published in Articles

Way back in the time when there was no laptops, phone gadgets, world medium such as; TV, Internet, Radio, which are now daily being utilised for the breaking of sensationalised bad news to the world non-stop, the Bible as the authentic Word of God already has detailed in it accurate prophesies relating to end times events, and timeline occurrences that we are meant to watch out for as signs of the end times. The last days events detailed in the Bible as signs of Christ Second Coming that we are meant to be on the look out for as prophesied by Christ and buttressed by the follow up prophesies and revelations of His disciples include:

1. An increase of false Christ, prophets, teachers, false doctrines etc, (Several wolves in human suits are now indeed daily busy deceiving people as false prophets, teachers etc. Across the world there are now quite a number of serpents in human bodysuit that are daily busy proclaiming themselves to be Christ. These serpents in human bodysuits have tons of followers that they are relentlessly deceiving and keeping bound in hell!):

"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many" (Matthew 24:4-5).

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer" (1 Timothy 4:1-5).

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:1-4).

2. Rumours of wars and wars, famines, pestilence, extreme bad weather, increase in natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, etc, (Note, Jesus never said in His end times prophecy below that the weather problems and natural disasters will be as a result of any so called ozone layer problems):

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows" (Matthew 24:6-8)

3. Extreme rebellion against God by the human population, huge rise in ungodly activities, increased sexual immorality activities in human society, etc,

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

4. As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the end times.... (In the days of Noah fallen angels engaged in illicit sexual activities with human beings (Genesis 6:1-8). These fallen angels are aliens, meaning illegal immigrants on earth but given right of abode by the fallen man to manifest on earth their wickedness and filth. Today, these fallen angels are operating through their hybrid seeds most of, which are in the high places of the world parading themselves all over the place in human bodysuits. Also, demonic sexual interactions with mankind is now on high increase. People are being raped by demons most especially in the dream world. In order to keep the human mind locked in promiscuous lustful desires and in pursuance of fulfilling insatiable immoral sexual urges, the fallen angels working through their possessed human portals have inundated the human society with highly sexualised images that are dubbed as entertainment, and also with all kinds of immoral concepts and ideas that are intended for keeping the human being enslaved in all manner of sexual sins. The human society has gradually disintegrated into an oversexed almost everything goes society whereby almost all acts of sins are now labeled as lawful freedom of expressions.

4.(a) As it was in the days of Lot so it shall be.. (In the days of Lot, there was extreme aggressive homosexual activities in Sodom and Gomorrah to the extent that ten righteous men could not even be found in the City in order for it to be spared from destruction by fire and brimstone (Genesis 18:32). The end times world of today is gradually turning into a mass population aggressive Sodom and Gomorrah sin world. The end times agenda of the devils in this regard, is to use carnal laws to criminalise righteousness and decriminalise sinfulness. Sin is now labeled as love and rebellion is labelled as freedom of expressions. But the fact of the matter is, God is love and love is not sinfulness but holiness (1 John 4:8-11). Therefore, anything that is deemed to be a sin by God can never amount to love under the holy and righteousness order of God.

"And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:26-29)

5. Extreme financial persecution through massive job cuts and displacement of humans from the workforce and, the replacement of human beings with robotic systems, big brother watch fear hype system, dehumanisation of humans through robotic tracking systems and humanisation of robots through evil and wicked usage of technological system.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six" (Revelation 13:16-18),

These key prophesies amongst others as signs of end times and evidence that Christ's Second Coming draws near are daily unfolding itself before our very eyes. However, although these prophesies are daily coming to pass right before our own eyes to the letter and form, the world for obvious reason wants people to only focus all attention on sensationalised media coverage of all sorts, and not give any hearing to the Good News of salvation. At the heart of satanic end times godless society agenda is mind engineering through for instance globalised one world educational curriculum system designed to make people from a very young age disapprove of things of God, approve sexual immorality as norm, and deny the existence of God. In addition, the subconscious mind of the human is constantly being poisoned to passionately hate God's righteousness through subliminal messages that are carefully hidden in films, musical videos, soaps, billboards, magazines, etc. The human society is becoming increasingly aggressively sinful, and self-righteousness and not the righteousness of God is now the governing force that controls the human minds and desires. The question is, what is the true body of Christ meant to do amidst all of these things? Are we living in the understanding of the times that we are in or are we as end times elects being distracted from focusing on God's mandate for us by all the sensationalised media coverage that are going on? Are we focusing on spreading the Good News of salvation as mandated by God or too busy listening and deliberating on the breaking news of the world, which are clearly meant for distracting people and for breaking people into emotional pieces?

The fact is, whatsoever end times activities that are unravelling itself daily in the world, God has already forewarned us about them so as to prepare us and, to ensure that we live in understanding of the times and not in ignorance as the devil desperately seeks for us to. The clock is ticking, time realm is drawing to a close and the devils like never before are busy unleashing every trick they have in their magic hat to deceive man from seeing and embracing the truth, which is Christ (John 14:6). They are addictively bent on deceiving, distracting mankind from understanding the need for repentance before it is too late, and dedicated to debilitating and stagnating mankind from making any spiritual advancement. The fallen angels are wise beasts and they are clearly busy cunningly fulfilling their evil end times purpose. They are warfare eccentrics, highly strategic in their warfare tactics, and structured in their hierarchical regimental order of evil forces. They are wicked by nature, completely void of compassion and, desperately hateful towards mankind (Ephesians 6:10--12). They know that man independently of God is no match for them. And this is why they are consistently busy deceiving man to rebel and reject God.

God as Creator of mankind is man's only hope of deliverance and salvation from the hands of the evil fallen angels. God executed His divine deliverance and redemption plan for mankind through the Person of Christ, and it is only through Christ that man can become saved from becoming a permanent partaker of the curse of eternal damnation that is upon the head of the fallen angels (Acts 4:12). The Gospel, which is all about the Good News of salvation from eternal damnation through Christ is not a message of hate but of God's divine love for mankind. The hater is none other but Satan --the evil old rebel serpent and stubborn sinner, and his rebellious demonic fallen angels gang. The world is spinning, and hell is coming to the surface. The response of the true Church of God ought not to be of shock but of obedience, perseverance and commitment to God's great commission of spreading the Good News of salvation to the ends of the world!

Yes, we will be persecuted but we cannot be destroyed. Yes, we will be tried but we are already justified and victorious by the blood of Jesus. Yes, some or several elects might even get killed in the line of our righteous duty by heartless demonically possessed beings, but we live forever in Christ (John 11:25-26). Until the day that Christ will return to judge the world, God's remnant will continually shine as light and operate as His heavenly portals on earth. The earth is of the LORD God, and the enemy cannot succeed in completely emptying the earthly realm of righteous soul through aggressive killing and wicked persecutions (Psalm 24:1). In all generations, God has reserved for Himself remnants and those remnants will fulfil their call of duty before exiting the world in one way or another. Yes, we will be bullied, we will increasingly be called haters for speaking the truth, and yes, the enemy will aggressively persecute us like never before. But, the fact remains that the power of God, which is on our side is the power that is above all! God is the one in charge and not man or the devils. And as His Word is daily coming to pass in the world, let us awake to righteousness, respond in faith and not in fear, unite in righteous love, march forward in boldness and daily fully commit ourselves to declaring the truth in all realms and dominion that Jesus is indeed the only way to eternal life and no other way. The suffering of the saints is temporary but that of the devil and his cohorts is eternal damnation in hell fire!

I pray that by God's grace we will continue in faith actions, and meet our quota of harvest in this generation and in generations that is to come to the glory of God. I also pray that we will never give up on God's missions and purpose for our lives but remain in diligent service, and righteously pass the baton of the race of life to the coming generation to the glory of our God, our everlasting Father and Creator of all. Amen.

Shalom to all true saints in Christ Jesus.

Amos 3:7-8

"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?"

2 Peter 2:1-11

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.

Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord."
