Which Life Matters Most to Us 

Living Godly in a pagan society 
1Peter 2: 11-17
(11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.)
We often forget and become comfortable in this world and become too concerned about the thing of this world and forgetting that, we are just strangers passing through this world.
We need to alwsys remind ourselves that Heaven is our home and not this place of sorrow. Those that have made this place( earth)they permanent home will never inherit the Kingdom of God. 

It simpliy means that they have made treasures on this earth and are not concerned about the salvation of their souls. People today are more worried about the matters of their lives, but tend to forget the Giver of that life. The Creator and Former of their lives, the one that has power and authority to destroy both the flesh snd Spirit. 
God in Heaven and Jesus Christ is sitted on the right hand of the Father. Jesus Chridt is intercedding for us through the Holy Spirit to God. He is hoping that all His children that He created as the Word says that we were created in His owm image, meaning we are like Him. Its not His wish that any of His children should perish into hell.
Hell was never created for us. Heaven was created for us.
Question
Today what are you desiring the most? 

Is your heart desiring to see Christ or is your heart desiring the things of this world?
Where your heart is based is where your God is at!! 
1Peter 2:25
For you were like sheep going astray. but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls

Are We Truly Born Again Christians Part 1

People need to understand what’s Christianity!!! 
lately I have been hearing just everyone saying that 2018 is the year that the Will of God will be done in their lives!! 
I have to admit that even I said that too, but was stopped fast before I could even allow that statement to dwell on my lips. 
This is the question I was asked: 

DO WE KNOW AND OBEY THE WILL OF THE GOD WE CLAIM TO HAVE AND KNOW? 
Are truly our ways His ways?
Its funny how we always say that statement without thinking twice about what it means. How can the Will of God be prefected into our lives, if we the so called born again Christians fail to simply follow His commands? 
The Wird of God clearly states that if we love Him, we will obey His commands!! So what ut actually implies is that onky thise that love Him, will live in each and every Word He has left us with. I kniw many of us always hidIng behind the statement that God is a forgiver and that we can keep on sining and He will never get tired of forgiving us!! 
Well there is danger the. We no longer fear the Lord and His Commands. The Word of God says that “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding”.
Christianity is a life, many of us have lost the most important part of been a christian. Christianity is not for the physical life but its for the Spiritual life, and the source of this Spiritual life is the one and only Jesus Christ. 
We can never have Christianity life without the Food of the Spirit which is the Word of God. This is why many Christians are still in the same positions because our Christianity is dead. We can never conne t to the Holy Spirit as our lives are full of sinful natures. 
Spiritual food is the one that leads us to prayer. We Christians we dont eat too much Spiritual food, that’s is the reason for our Spiritual weaknesses.  
Our Spiritual lives, also needs to drink water, have breakfast,lunch. snack and dinner. Just as our physical bodies has. Thats why today our Spiritual lives as Christians are so poor, crippled because we don’t eat the Spiritual food regularly.  

Question
HOW MANY TIMES Do you in a day? 

The times that we eat per day should be equal to the times we eat our Spiritual food, which is the Word of God. You cant pray without thinking about it. Prayer is a journey. You are going somewhere Spiritual. You need the fuel. The fuel is the Word. You cant pray without the fuel. The Spirit does not go where there is no Word. 
THE SOURCE OF THE SPIRIT IS THE WORD OF GOD!! 
The Spirit of God can never come without the Word. You can never rob the Spirit to come. We need to be submissive to hear the Word and give the Spirit enough time to hear the Word. The Word of God maintains our Spirit after we are full of the Word, Our Spirits are pushed to pray.
Today many of us Christians, our Spirits are on sickbeds because we are not feeding the Spirit proper food (the Word of God) 
Pastors, teachers of the Word are our Spiritual doctors. How can you expect a car that’s not serviced, to go an extra mile? Its the same with been a Christian.  
Christians today are only concerned about deliverance, breakthroughs, marriages and don’t care for the Spiritual lives. We are what they call premature Christians. We were still linked to the things of this world We become Christians but because of our evil desires we cant leave our old evil natures. 
Its only by hearing the Word of God, that we can grow our Spirits. Its only by the Spirit that God hears our prayers. 
Many poeple are Spiritual flat. like a flat tyre. How far will you get with a flat tyre? 
Question
How Many Prayers are you sure, that God heard them?

Today we are praying and our prayers are not answered, why is that? 
God can’t hear or see anyone who does not have His Spirit.
Let us be children of God and carry out His Commands

Married to a Serial Bully

Colossians 3:19 
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Ephesians 5:25 

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

1 Peter 3:7  

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Ephesians 5:28 

In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

Personally I have never been in an abusive relationship. So Im wrting this for all the women in my life and women around the globe that have suffered abuse at the hands of those who had claimed to love and protect them.

First thing we need to establish here is that abuse does not discriminate. It sees no race, martial status, qualifications, your status in your society. This evil enemy of many has destroyed many lives, marriages, homes, and children futures. 

There are women who have been in abusive relationships for years and that had a profound affect on their lives.  I believe, its through those dark moments in your life where you have learned things. You see in most cases those bullies think that they are breaking us, but little do they know that they were preparing us for greater battle that was to come.   

The thing I have noticed is that, a serial bully could be just anybody. One cant say just because he is a respected men of God, he would never. Or just because he is a doctor, lawyer, all those fancy titles we rank high on the moral ladder, they could never even hurt a fly. 

Women today are in marriages holding on to the very last breath they have, in the believe that God would answer their prayers for their marriage, husbands and children. They believe in God’s sovereignty, They believe He is all powerful, and know the abuse in their marriage was not His will since it was totally unrighteous and utterly antithetical to His nature.  Since God answers prayer, and they believe He does. abuse is a violation of His nature, He would certainly answer my prayers to change my husband’s heart, right?

Well I have learned in my journey of been a woman seeking after the heart of God, that yes God does answer prayers but not just how we imagine He would. I have learned He is more interested in turning our erroneous paradigms inside out so we learn the right prayer to pray. God answers prayers in His own time.

what i have noticed is that this evil enemy of our happiness, joy and peace not only does it steal our inner beings but also steals the one thing that is important to us. Our relationship with Jesus Christ. In the mist of all the abuse and trying to keep a brave face in front of all your family and friends, u lose the most important connection in your life. You end up wasting all your energy and time praying for this marriage, this marriage of sorrow, heartbreak, full of bitterness. That you forget about your Lord and what He has really called you here on earth to do. 

I believe we all have assignments that God has ordinated for us to do, to bring glory and honour to His name. But instead we spend years and years praying, hoping, trying to change ourselves to fit into this bully perfect wife image. Till you realise that not even that helps. You are submissive, caring, and loving even when that is not truly our job to do. 

After years you realise, you would not force your husband to change against God’s will, no matter how much you prayed for this to happen for the sake of your children.  God created man with a free will.  God is able to change his mind, but He limits Himself to the parameters He gave man as a unique creation. 

In the pews of every church, including yours, are women who are victims of abuse. It’s tough to believe in the fidelity of God, if all you’re experiencing is ongoing abuse in your life. 

Churches should take time to address these kinds of issues because It deeply impacts how women have intimacy with the Father. If our goal is spiritual vitality, spiritual growth, we will never get thete till we are emotional healed. 

Today we as Christian women find ourselves been abused and submission is held over our heads by men who are emotionally manipulative or abusive in order to get their way and maintain power and control.

Men use scriptures today to abuse women and if we cant run to our church leaders for help, where are we to run to? 

Men love using this verse: “women are to keep silent in the churches” (1 Cor. 14:34)

We remain silent in order to “submit” to our husband. Like many abusers uses this Scripture to manipulate their wife’s behavior.

Today everyone has a role to play:

Pastors can help men better understand their biblical role in marriage by providing balanced teaching on offering marriage classes and counseling and modeling a loving relationship with their wives.

Women, we can support each other by judging less. No women asks to be abused. 
Besides helping men understand their role as husbands, abuse will forever been in our mist.

The Word Becomes Flesh 

John 1-18
( 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, this is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me. 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known)

 

The words says that in the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God. If you can notice the word was mentioned three times. This is the trinity of God. God, the Son and Holy Spirit. You can never accept one and reject the other two. 
Today most people only recognise God but have forgotten that it’s God, the Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus said that no one can go through my father without me. 
What that means is that as long as we are refusing to acknowledge Jesus Christ as our personal saviour, we will never inherit the kingdom of God.

Through Him all things were made, without Him nothing was made, that has been made, In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it 
Jesus Christ came to his own people, yet but His own did not receive Him. Today we have people that are still denying Jesus Christ as the Son of God. God knew when He came in a form of flesh that some people (been the darkness) will never accept Him 
But to those that received Him, He gave them the right to become children of God, children not born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband will, but born of God 

God Himself become flesh and made His dwelling among us 
What I come to realise was that God became flesh so that He could teach us and show us what we as Christians would experience all for His name sake. The word became a living example for many who would believe in it. 
We don’t have to worry and cry too much about the trials and tribulations of this world because our God who became flesh has went through it all and He has overcome them all. Jesus Christ led by perfect example. In all His testing’s He remained pure, righteous and never once did He ever speak bad of others. Jesus Christ was a fair judge till the end. 
Today I want to ask you this question have you indeed received the word and have made the word your personal Lord and saviour?
We need to know that without the word we are nothing. Let us stop chasing after the darkness and start running toward the true light that created heaven and earth. The light that gives life to us.

Daily Register of Your Christian Walk

Today I want to challenge you to a daily register of your Christian walk. I want us to see if indeed we are still on the right standing with our God and His will. 
I want you to draw up two columns and in one write Fruit of the Spirit because the bible says we are new, so we need to cloth ourselves with the Fruit of the Spirit daily been:
Compassion

kindness

humility

gentleness

patience

Bearing with each other and forgive one another.  
We should allow the peace of Christ rule in our hearts at all times. Since we are all members of one body, we were called to peace. 
Collossians 3 speaks about us living as those made alive in Christ. but this might sound funny to an unchristian as we modern day Christians still live likethose ruled by our human nature. Sin is still raging war into our hearts and has taken us hostage in our own lives. Our sinful human nature is still, living within us. We still have elments of weakness of the flesh.

Now this is where you write into the other column the Fruit of the Flesh which is: 
Sexual Immortality

now sexual immortality for all of you know it all. It does not necessary mean having sexual intercourse with someone. Today we are commiting sexual immortality with our minds, mouth but mostly with our hearts.  
Impurity

lust

evil desires

and greed which is idolatry. All those elments will lead us right to hell. we will never inherit nor see the kingdom that our Heavenly Father has promised us. 
If you want to see if your old nature/ old self is still ruling you, Check yourself if you still have:

anger

rage

malice

slander

and any filthy language is still coming from your lips. By this you will see which spirit is ruling and living in your heart!!! 
Remember that because we have been made new with Christ, we are now new beings. Our new self is now full of compassion,

kindness

humility

gentleness

patience. We are people of peace and we bear with each other, forgiving each other. 
Let the two columns show you which God you are worshipping. This will be an indicator to us to check ourselves and pray to God for Him to help us because only He can make us right.  
Let us not take our old sinful natures of 2017 into 2018
Let our 2018 be pleasing to God at all times, Let us walk in righteousness.

Dear 2017

Dear 2017
When this year started I was told that it was a year of love and hardships. What I failed to realise at that time was what it meant by year of love. I automatically thought that it was the year of me finally meeting my Adam, my Boaz. little did I know what it meant was that it was a year I will need God the most. 

You see with it been the year of hardship, I would not have made it if God was not with me. It took me many trails and tribulations that Love is God Himself and what it meant was if I had God by my side, I could endure everything.  
So here im writing this letter to my 2017:
I would be the first to admit that 2017 was full of many hardships and struggles. Struggless of the heart, mind but mostly of my walk in my Christianity. I was pushed against so many waves and because I had God by my side, I survived them all. 

In 2017 I faced and saw many disappointments. I found myself trapped in sins that I never dreamt I would find myself in them and only God could rescue me. You see you 2017 I could say we had a bitter sweet relationship but we made it work. 
With all the hardships I mangaed to pull myself through them all. I have lost many things but what im proud and happy of is that I did not lose my Salvation.  

It was this good News of the Gospel that I received the first day I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savoir, that kept me strong and standing through it all. You see the thought of losing my salvation and losing out snd not inheriting the Kingdom of God triffied me more than all the hardships and trails, I have faced in 2017.

2017 im greatful of all the hurts, sadness, loneliness, disappointments, heart breaks. Because of you im stronger and more Spiritual matured. im greatful that I endured all that I have. 

2017 I thank you very much but your end has come and its with pure joy that I bid farewell to you with gladness in my heart and soul. I thank you for everything.

Jesus the Bread of Life

 For the longest time I did mot understand this statement. Jesus the bread of life. I literally thought that it meant that Jesus would give us bread everyday, till recently I got a very powerful revelation to this statement.  

What Jesus meant when He said Im the Bread of life when His disciples asked Him and He responded by saying, in John 6: 26-27

( very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on Him God the Father has placed His seal of approval. 

Here Jesus was talking about our Spiritual life not physical one. He was saying that we have fed our spirits with His word and in His word there is power, there is life, happiness, everything that we so desire. The word of God says in John 1:1-1
( In the beginning was the Word and the the Word was with God, and God was the Word) 

When we have fully eaten the word of God, we have God Himself inside of us, all the worries and troubles of this world will never affect us as our Father who lives in us will fight all our battles and will grant us enteral life. Who ever comes to Jesus will never go hungry and whoever believes will never go thirsty. 

We need to know that without the word of God been inside of us, we will forever hunger for many things of this world and we will never be satisfied with this world. Hence Jesus was encoyraging us to instead work for food that does not spoil. The word of God will never spoil as its eternal and it gives us life in abandeance.

The word of God is a very powerful tool for us as Christians and today we tend to take little notice of it. We have forgotten the basic statement that Jesus left us. Instead this days we no longer read the word of God but we are so prayerful and fastful. We can never pray to God without reading and eating His word. Its the word that strengthen our Relationship with Chrust Jesus, for its the Word that corrects, rebukes and puts us right again with Christ Jesus.  

The Word of God is life to us, and anyone who believes to this statement has eternal life. He goes to say that our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. Im the living Bread that comes down from heaven. Whoever eats this Bread will live forever. This Bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 

The will of God is for everyone to receive this Bread of life and have eternal life and on the last day He will raise us up. We need to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and savior while the time is still here. Cause there will be a time when all of this will not happen. People today are so concerned with their physical lives. People are chasing after wealth, and the things of this world and not after The Bread of life. 

John 6: 57- 58 says:

( Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the Bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this Bread will live forever. )

Without us accepting and having a relationship with Jesus Christ we will never inherit eternal life and we will never see the kingdom of God. The reason Jesus came down to earth was for the forgiveness of our sins and for us to inherit eternal life. 

Today take the time to ask yourself this question?

Are you truly eating the Bread of life, which Jesus Christ can only give us or are we giving ourselves the bread of this world that will never make us full?

Hence the reason we will never be full and we will forever be looking and seeking for things that will never satisfy us?  

Forget about the pleasures of this world, as one day we will all depart from this world and will leave them all behind. Question is will your spirit raise with Jesus Christ? 

Seek first for the true Bread of Life, which is Jesus Christ!!!
