Fear Not

Published in Articles

Fear Not and arm yourself daily with the sheild of faith in Christ! Faith is all about reacting to natural situations in a fearless supernatural manner. Fear is all about reacting to natural situation in a predictable fearful natural manner. Fear is inevitable when we walk by sight. In order for us to walk by faith, we must hold on to Jesus every day. When we walk by faith we see God’s presence and His solutions for us in the midst of problems. However, when we walk by fear, all we see is ourselves in isolation going through it all alone without God.

Faith is to do with believing the Word of God as wholesome truth and evidencing our believe through relying on it without wavering. We need to believe and rely on God's Word in order for us to be able to reject evidence of fear as nothing but false evidence appearing as real. Faith basically enables, but fear cripples. We need faith in order for us to keep trusting in the supernatural working power of God in our lives and to keep believing in it as truthfully working everything together for our good irrespective of how negative or daunting our natural circumstances or situation. We need faith in order for us to remain obedient to God and serve Him diligently in all things. We need faith in order for us to remain fervently prayerful and continually worship God in spirit and in truth no matter our natural circumstances. Our victory in all situations from start to finish is indeed assured by us believing and having faith in the Word of God!

The Word, power and authority of God made flesh is Christ Jesus (John 1:1-14). Christ as God's Word made flesh is the Spirit of truth, love and life itself. And all we need to do in order for us to remain consistently victorious over Satan who is the spirit of; lies, hatred and death: is continually surrender our all to Christ who as Spirit of truth, is the author and finisher of our faith.

Whatsoever circumstances you might be going through today as a redeemed of Christ, fear not! Don’t be deceived by Satan's fearful tactics or by his lies that you are going through it all alone. God never leaves nor forsake His redeemed and He is always faithful to make a way for us where there seem to be no way. Shut down the gateway of fear and magnify the LORD today with your riotous praise and worship. Fix your eyes on Christ and be rest assured of victory in all circumstances through the effectual working of the power and authority that is in the name of Christ Jesus. No matter your situation or circumstances, call upon the name of Jesus and believe without wavering, that you are by the holy authority of His name destined to always win unfailingly. The presence of Christ in your life is all you need to overcome the spirit of fear. When the spirit of fear, which is the devil sees that you are fully surrendered to Christ who is the author and finisher of faith, the devil will surely bow in defeat in all circumstances and he can never succeed in crippling you!

Live daily by faith and not by sight. Irrespective of how daunting or impossible the situational outlook of the natural situation you find yourself in, keep holding on to Jesus every day and never let go of your faith in Christ. Jesus Christ as the author and finisher of our faith has the power to change your circumstances and bring you out of any situation you are in full of His might and strength to the glory of the Father. Therefore, fear not for as long as Christ is in the boat with you, your life boat can never capsize no matter how heavy the storm!

I pray the spirit of fear will never have its way in your and that you will by God's grace through your faith in Christ Jesus reach His predestined destination of glory for your life in Jesus's mighty name. Amen.

"For we walk by faith, not by sight". ~2 Corinthians 5:7

Have a blessed day!

Rejoice

Published in Articles

Rejoice in the LORD oh ye His Redeemed! The time realm is subject to the control of the infinite God, and God in His timeless existence directs all things in all realms to work together for the good of His redeemed in Christ. Today, whatsoever you are facing in this realm of time, remember time exist for the perfection of your eternal existence. The temporary things you are facing in time realm are not for the detriment of your soul, but for the perfection of your spirit man for eternal life abiding with the Ancient of Days. The timeless God sees all the struggles that you are facing in this falling world time realm, and by grace of His perfect finished work through the Person of Christ, time can only work for your good as a redeemed in Christ and not against you.

The LORD God Almighty is on your side and not against you and His thoughts towards you are of goodness and not evil (Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28-31). Do not despair in your trials, for your trials are only for a momentary period, and the endless eternal glory, which awaits you in Christ shall make your endurance and perseverance in your trials all worth your while (Romans 8:18, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18). Submit to the Holy Spirit daily for the completion of your regeneration process. Let His perfect Will be done in your life daily for the eternal goodness of your soul.

Keep your eyes fixed daily on Christ the Ancient of Days (Hebrews 12:1-2). He exists before time. He came before your time to complete the work of your salvation on the cross of Calvary. He knows where you are right now in your journey through time. He is in charge of everything both in time and in timelessness dimension. He is the author and finisher of your faith. He is the author and shaper of your destiny. He has written the story of your life before time began. He ensured you ended with Him in time for eternal life abiding with Him. He knows your name and He understands you more than you can even begin to articulate. He is your Saviour and Redeemer. He is the same yesterday, today and for ever (Hebrews 13:8). He is with you in your daily journey as your good Shepherd (John 10:14-16). He is as the Bishop of our souls our eternal light of life and our everlasting hope of glory (John 8:12, 1 Peter 2:25).

As the Ancient of Days and King of kings, Christ Jesus our holy Redeemer controls the affairs of time from His timeless dimension. His plans never fails because He has made them ahead of time. He is the behind the scene Divine Director of your life. And He has written the script concerning your life to end happily for His timeless glory sake and not in tragedy. He is worthy to be trusted, praised and thanked.

Today, oh ye redeemed of the LORD. Arise! Give thank to the Ancient of Days and praise His holy name. Rejoice and enjoy the day, for this is a day our LORD has made for you to be gladdened and rejoice in His presence.

Rejoice! Rejoice and rejoice. For the LORD is good and the infinite joy of our timeless God is forever our strength (Nehemiah 8:10). Amen.

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” ~Isaiah 61:10-11

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~Jeremiah 29:11

Discernment

Published in Articles

Discernment is simply the ability to tell right from wrong. We can only make the right decisions in all realms of existence and avoid the spiritual consequences of wrong decisions if we are able to see and judge things clearly for what they are and not from a physical blind spot. As believers of Christ, we are meant to always operate by Godly discernment and not through our fleshy inclined feelings of emotions. The devil constantly targets the mind with negative thoughts in order to activate negative emotional feelings. The devil knows that negative emotional feelings is an aspect of weakness shared by man in common. Emotions distorts reasoning and clogs up the thought process. Emotions not only makes us to feel detached from God but it also terribly impairs the mind and adversely affect it from reasoning in alignment with God's  perfect Will and desires for our lives. Emotions blinds the eyes from seeing the spiritual evidence. It focuses the eyes primarily on physical evidence, which of course in reality sense is not the whole true picture. The devil as a chief deceiver of course knows for a fact that the physical world is not the real world. The devil also knows that as long as people make decisions based only on what they can physically see, spiritual truth will continue to elude them. The number one priority of the devil therefore is to manipulate physical evidence and deceive people with the manipulated physical evidence to make wrong spiritual judgement and decisions. The devil as a common enemy of mankind  does not want people to think there is anything called spiritual realm, which is the real realm let alone believe that God even exist. The wiles of the devil are beyond the human scope of articulations and reasonings. And unfortunately, the devil has through his wicked wiles entrapped many people in the world in spiritual darkness through his evil deceptions!

The world is actually spinning right before our eyes with a spin wheel of lies and deception. And in the midst of all the euphoria that are being created by the spin wheel of lies, it is very unfortunate that people who claim to be believers of Christ and who are meant to be living by faith and not by sight have fallen victim to the regime of sight. The world rhetorics is now what is used and relied upon by many as intelligent statements. The worldly role models have found their ways into the arena of the Church through their forbidden knowledge writings that are masqueraded as high intelligent 'inspirational' quotes or words. The words of man is now preferred over the Word of God. The truth is constantly being manipulated by the agents of Satan that are masquerading themselves as saints of Christ in the so called Christianity arena. There seem to be no ending at sight to the debate of how wide the so called church should open its door to accommodate sin and please the wilful sinner. The truth is twisted to suit individual's empire building mandate, and holiness and righteousness is no longer at the heart of the teachings of the Church. The preferred trend now in the so called church arena is all to do with ministering to people's problems and not to their souls. The struggle for natural world survival and aggressive pursuit of financial breakthroughs has made many to become completely blinded in the spirit and entirely vulnerable to terrible deception. The Church that is meant to impact the world has widely opened its door wide not to call in sinners to repent but for the world to impact the Word and change the Church from being the headquarter of God as Word, to becoming the headquarter of sin and worldliness!

The enemies of Christianity are no longer the official non Christians. But the so called Christians who are in fact officially a non Christian from a spiritual perspective. The people who  are now most vocal against the preachers of truth and who are prepared to go out of their way to discourage and rudely tell off a preacher of truth are in fact no longer so to speak 'non Christians.' Rather, they are the people who claim to be Christians but whose ways and actions in reality goes to show that they are in fact not at all of Christ or for Christ, but of the antichrist and for the antichrist. The preachers of truth are labelled as either jealous of so called successful pastors or as some sort of bigots or bitter minded hateful people. The ears have become itchy and many are indeed suffering from the famine of hearing the true Word of God.  The need to operate and walk in spiritual discernment is now a strange concept to many so called professed Christians. Many are simply walking by sight and no longer by faith. The truth is no longer seen from God's own divine perspective but subjectively dictated and interpreted by man to suit their own sinful rebellious agenda. The devil is seductively deceiving many to believe they are in control and many indeed are convinced that they are full of so much power therefore unstoppable. The rush to follow and look up to orators of flesh as role models instead of following and looking up to Jesus, increases day by day. Many people are labouring in vain and fulfilling the empire building objective of man in the believe mindset that they are in fact serving in the righteous vineyard of God and advancing His kingdom. The true vineyard of God is in huge shortage of true labourers and the camp of righteous preachers of truth is constantly looking and appearing physically desolate. From a physical perspective it seems as if the rebellious Satan's camp is winning and unstoppable!  The truth from a spiritual perspective however is that Satan is for ever a loser and those that follows his rebellious footsteps will only end up as losers!

Jesus is for ever LORD and Satan is for ever a LOSER AND LIAR! Therefore, whilst it might seem from a physical perspective as if Satan is winning, the truth is that Satan has lost his entire battles even before the foundation of the world (Revelation 12:7-12). All his hype is simply to create terrible tension, generate fear and distract people from focusing on what counts most, which is salvation and redemption for eternal life purposes. Today, seek God to open your spiritual eyes of understanding so that you can operate in His power of discernment and clearly see things for what they are and not just follow the crowd blindly! Live by faith and not by sight and always test all spirits. Don't see yourself as 'knowing all' already therefore nothing further to learn. You attitude of 'you already know all there is to know' will only block your ears to knowing what God wants you to learn, see and understand for the sake of your growth and maturity.  Ask God daily to order your footsteps and for Him to lead you by His power and auction of His Holy Spirit. You can only grow and mature where God plants you and God will only plant you in His righteous foundation and make you fruitful.  Don't just join a church because of what you can physically see or because of your own personal ambitions for breakthroughs and so on. Don't just rely on what a so called man or woman of God says. Test all spirits, get your relationship right with God, and earnestly rely and depend on Him daily to discern for you. I pray the good LORD will help us all in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." ~1 John 4:1
Humble yourself daily before God. Thirst after His righteousness and yearn for His holiness. Seek daily to please God by walking and living by faith and not by sight. Remain steadfast in all things and continually persevere in your trials to the very end. Don't  be enticed by swell words. Be Godly in your ways and be purpose centred and not problem centred. Focus your eyes on Jesus daily and make receiving God's eternal life reward for your soul your priority. Don't join the rebellious gangs and set up yourself to perish in this perilous times through hardness of hearts!
"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. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." ~2 Timothy 3:1-7

Holiness Is of God

Published in Articles

Holiness Is of God. No one is entitled to be called 'His Holiness' except the LORD God Almighty. In the Old Testament of the Bible God gave several laws to Isreal His chosen nation as representatives of mankind. But, they were unable to fulfil the entire laws of God and they repeatedly backslide and sinned against God simply because by nature man is sinful. God of course foreknew that man will fall into sin and that man in the fall into sin will be unable to meet His standard of holiness independently of Him and reconcile back to His Holy Spirit without His divine intervention. Therefore, God from the very beginning in His foreknowledge intended to make us holy and acceptable unto Him eternally not by the Old Testament sacrificial system or by laws written on tablet stones, but through a new covenant blood relationship sealed by the remission blood of Christ Jesus (Jeremiah 31:31-33, Revelation 13:8).

Our sinful nature, which is impossible for us to get rid of independent of God's remission intervention was the main barrier in the way of man reconciling with God's Holy Spirit to have and enjoy an eternal life relationship of peace, rest and joy with Him. God as our Maker is entirely sovereignly independently divinely righteous and holy because of who He is. And if God will only grant man relationship access to His Holy Spirit if man is sinless and holy just as He is, then unless God who is His HOLINESS in itself intervenes for us to enable us meet His holiness standards, it will be impossible for us as mankind to get rid of the first Adamic man sinful nature that we all acquiesced in let alone attain God's holiness standard independently of His Holy Spirit (Romans 3:19-31).

God's divine remission intervention for mankind came in the Person of Christ. Through Christ's finished work of remission on the cross, God paved the way for us as mankind to completely do away with our sinful nature and fully adopt His perfect holy nature. Christ through His remission work on the cross crucified the corporate body of the sinful natured flesh and in so doing, He once and for all paved the way for us to have forgiveness of our sins from God, reconcile back with His Holy Spirit and have a sinless relationship with God our Maker and heavenly Father. As a result of Christ's complete remission works we are now able to:

1. Do away with our sinful nature when we repent from sins and adopt God's own holy and perfect righteous sinless nature from the sinless Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

2. Have access to God's Holy Spirit and have a sinless peaceful covenant relationship with Him (Romans 5:1-5)

3. Obey God's laws, which is all about divine love through the power of obedience we receive from Christ (Matthew 22:35-40, Romans 1:1-5).

4. Fulfil God's primary purpose for creating us, which is to worship Him eternally as our God, Creator and Maker in spirit and in truth (John 4:21-24).

5. Exercise dominion over sin, evil powers and the wicked principalities forces of this world who are the primary agents of sins (Romans 6:6-23, Ephesians 6:10-12).

6. See and enter God's kingdom through our new birth in Christ (John 3:1-8).

7. Be free from condemnation of sins, live unto God in newness of spirit with a lively hope of eternal life and no longer live unto sin indebted to consequences of sin, which is death (John 1:12, Romans 6:23 & 8:1-17, Galatians 2:19-21).

Christ Jesus as the fulfiller of all Old Testament remission laws remains man's only means of receiving forgiveness for sins and reconciling with God (Romans 10:1-4). Choosing to surrender your life to Christ therefore is not just a choice of a religious ideology amidst the several religious ideologies in the world that are considered to be of equal standing in promoting the attainment of God's holiness and righteousness standards. Instead, choosing to surrender your all to Christ, is in fact a choice of God's holiness in itself and a departure from devil's nature of sinfulness. This choice is not by force. It is a choice we must all make by willingly surrendering our entire being unto God through Christ and not by any forceful means.

If your desire is to avoid the eternal consequences of sin, which is eternal death, and have eternal life in God's kingdom, then as it is written, your only chance of realistically realising your desire is by fulfilling God's holiness standard through Christ. God's holiness standards requirement is not discretionary. It is a mandatory requirement we must all fulfil if we are to end up in His eternal life kingdom. God will not allow an ungodly or an unholy spirit to enter His holy kingdom to have benefits and rewards of eternal life (1 Corinthians 15:50). And none can ever meet God's holiness standards requirement through vain religious practices or by independent works of so called righteousness. Our only means of entering God's kingdom and receiving from Him the everlasting rewards of eternal life is by meeting His holiness and righteousness standard through His own only divinely approved way, which is Christ Jesus.

Holiness is of God and holiness, which is of God is God's very own divine sinlessness standard. Therefore, it is impossible for man to attain it through any naturalistic centred religious prescription no matter how heavy the dosage is. Holiness is only possible through us reconciling with God's Holy Spirit who as holiness itself is the only one that can make us holy! Christ Jesus as the manifested body of holiness and righteousness of God is the only divinely approved sinless body given to us by God to enable us reconcile back to His Holy Spirit and meet His divine sinlessness, holiness and righteousness standard. Outside of Christ therefore, none in the eyes of God can ever be sinless, righteous and holy just as God is holy let alone have a legitimate lively hope of spending eternal life in the holy kingdom of the Almighty God who is forever and ever: Holy, Holy and Holy.

Jesus Christ is calling you today! Not into a religion, but to enter into a sinless, righteousness and holy relationship with the LORD God Almighty who as is His HOLINESS itself is: our Saviour, Redeemer, eternal Rock of Ages, KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS.

Stop wasting your time labouring in carnal vain religious practices, which profits your soul nothing. Come out of sinfulness into God's holiness by accepting Jesus's holy calling upon your life today if you are yet to!

1 Peter 1:2-5

"Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
