Tick, Tock, Tick...

It is counting down
2013 is rounding off.

It started just like yesterday full of dreams and hopes
Some were achieved and some weren't
Some were redirected and some were thrown out

2014 is on the way
It is just three days (about) away and I am anticipating as usual
I am anticipating better dominion in 2014 than in 2013
More divine health than last years, more prosperity in spirit, soul and body
More strength, glory, honor, wisdom, riches, power, & blessings
than I have ever experienced before

Come 2014, I am standing on this promise
My path is shining brighter and brighter, me and mine
No matter how dark the world gets, we are separated and sanctified unto God.

Got this understanding this morning
I had always wondered about it.

The psalms say that 'the earth is the LORD's
and the other part of the bible says that satan is the god of this world
I always wondered which superceded the other and why one could make the other a lie
and if one could at all.

This is my belief:
The earth is the LORD's
The world is the system by which this world is run
So I am not in this world system or ruled by it
I operate the system of the kingdom by the grace of God
So I am separated from this world and its troubles
I am living in the peace of God, me and mine
We are protected under the shadow of the almighty
His angels are active on our behalf
As we march into 2014, we will experience victories
that the human hands cannot birth for us
The supernatural will be our experience even for
things that we can seemingly do ourselves.

The resources and the help of heaven is available to us in Jesus name, amen

nekaparadosinakaraba hedabahondokodohandabayada in Jesus name, amen.

Cheers everyone
Happy 2014 in advance
Its in 3 days time.

Under the influence of the Holy Ghost as always

God is amazing!

I am grateful for my God
Naturally, given my background I should never have gotten saved
but God came for me and mine.

He sought us and He found  us. Knowing God is a gift I would never exchange for anything else
I have known the mercy of God and it is marvelous in my sight.
Naturally I would never have qualified for mercy but I am grateful that God sent Jesus.
Jesus has been to me more than Father, Mother, Brother, Sisters, Friends
He has shown Himself strong and I am thankful for 2013

I have seen Him in directing my life, He is my compass, my beacon and my direction
He tells me what to do, what to say, where to go, how to act.
I am thankful for my business that He has ordained for me to do
I know that He will prosper it and cause it to be fruitful in all ways.

I am thankful for goodness and prosperity and thanksgiving
Glorious!

I look forward to a more glorious 2014
Love you all bushels and bushels.

Awesome week...

I am amazed.

God is so good
Building, building, building

I anticipate a glorious week with amazing opportunities
and my mind filled with witty inventions to conquer babylon

I am filled to overflowing with God's love
I am manifesting the fruit of the Spirit in all ramification
expecting strange works and strange acts by a mighty God
I am thankful for the unspeakable gifts of God
and soaring on the wings of the Holy Ghost

I am taking my God-ordained place and excersing dominion
everywhere I go.
Favor is my name.

Ciao!

It's December, Yay!

I am so thankful

I prayed this morning and I felt so washed by the word
It strengthened, built and renewed me

I am expectant

My advocate
The advocate of my professions
You can't make me speak wrong
I am speaking God's word

I have no pics
Finally started my business

I will work hard but I am not depending on the hard work
I am depending on God's word to me

#Worship is who I am
I am entering into God's best

Let the heavens bear witness
Let the earth bear witness
Let beneath the earth bear witness

I am entering into God's best

Have a great day

#Thankful

Thank you is the best prayer that anyone can say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility and understanding - Alice Walker


I want to say 'Thank You' for the last five years, It hasn't been easy, it has been productive.
I wish I could say that the production is my credit but I can't take credit for anything.

It has been the goodness, favor and the mercy of God all the way.
Congratulations to those who have it all together, you have my sincerest admiration
But I haven't had it altogether many times in the last five years, but God has.

His grace has kept me and mine and still keeps us.
I am apprehensive and yet excited about my next step in life
My confidence comes from the fact that God is leading me along His path for me

I can hear the nay sayers already
just like I heard them in 2008, they didn't stop me then, they won't stop me now.

I am just thankful to God and to everyone who came my way. I am thankful for the roles
that they played. I am thankful to my family. It is my last day and I am eternally grateful
God has shown Himself the most to me here and in spite of all the challenges
God can bring honey out of a rock or any other thing He choose to bring honey out of
I am truly in awe of God's goodness and His sovereignity

As usual, I am walking in love...
and achieving God's purpose for my life too.

Ciao!


'Trusting in 'Yahweh as usual' 
Excited but anticipating good things ahead.

Easiest definition!!!

Faith in God is believing that He loves you and will be good to you.
-Joseph Prince
Especially for those who don't get the difficult King James definitions, this definition is easier for me to believe and not include my works and my strivings.
 We learn so much about God what he requires and all that thingy and then sometimes some one says something so simple that we are able to receive.
God is good
He does good
He takes care of me and mine irrespective of my need to feel in control
Everything is working together for my good.
Not because I am too good but because He sees Christ, God I mean, when He sees me
and nothing is withheld from me.
 

Faith is

"He who comes to come must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him" - Writer of Hebrews.

How easy these words seem to be? But how difficult they are to put into practice.
This is what the faith walk is.

If you know me well, you will know that I prowl all around social media like it is a supermarket but I am discerning in the type of content I allow into my space. I am diligent in guarding my heart.

I am reading this scripture above from somewhere in Hebrews (Go read and maybe we can share this stuff) and I see that God wants to be diligently sought.

Scripture says that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. So when I seek out God and look for His presence in my day and in the little and the big things that I do, God is well pleased. God is pleased when I can take out five minutes in my day to see what he is thinking.

One of the first beliefs I should have is that, "God is".
This should be my belief not just when I am feeling good, this should be my belief even when contrary winds are blowing. I know that, God is. I always know that God is, when I am happy and when I am sad; I still know that God is.

This is faith. This belief in the existence of God and that He rewards those who seek Him. I am not trying to do anything or get Him to do anything. I just know that He is and that He is sovereign over all and everything.

He is God.
He is.
He exists
He rewards those who diligently seek Him
He is love
He loves

This is faith!

Foundation
  • Faith, hope & Love is of God
  • I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me

New Month, New Mercies!

My dp message for the 1 November was "New Month, New Mercies.
Amazing message abi. I wrote it passively from my spirit but didn't pay much attention till @anafricandiva told me this is so inspiring.

I said thanks then I began pondering, "Theresa, were you expecting any new mercies this month or were you getting religious about the mercies of God. Guilty I was religious about it right up until the diva reminded me. I am thankful to God for His mercies and expecting more in November and December.
With people it is more blessed to give than to receive but with God, it is more blessed to receive than to give. So in this month of November my stance has changed, I am expectant of new mercies this month. Concerning my finances I receive God's will concerning me in increasing measures. I change levels by the grace of God and not the sweat of my brow.

I am led by the Spirit of God every day.

Still working on the spiritism post. It is in the book of Galatians. I will post some time during the week with scriptural reference.

Foundation scripture for me:
"I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus"

It took me ages before I could say this scripture. I used to read the bible with a sense that I did not deserve the great things I read in them. But today I read the bible with confidence.

I read the bible with confidence because I am reading about Daddy God and my brother Jesus. I am glad to belong in their family and be a partaker of divinity. I have confidence in Daddy God and I am conscious of being a joint heir in Christ.

I can't be responding like a human anymore. I have to respond like God because my Daddy God gave birth to me and made me a god. If you understand the faith walk you will understand what I am writing.

If God says you are rich, you take your position as the rich one even when your bank account is red (1 Cor 8:9). Apply the kingdom principles concerning wealth. If God says you are healed, you take the position of the healed one. If God says you are bold, you take that position by responding from your spirit (Isaiah 53, 1 Peter). If God says that He is enough, He is your God and He will help you, then you believe Him (Isaiah). If God says that you are one with Him then don't be thinking of yourself as alone, God is with You, living in you (1 Corinthians 6:17). If He says you are wise, have counsel, understanding, the fear of God (Isaiah 11), agree with Him. Don't go in the flesh, go in the Spirit.

Live renew. Live in a position where your mind is always renewed to the word of God, this faith, this living is the victory that overcomes the world.

Colossians 3 says that "If you are from above, then dwell on the things that are above"

Writing my thoughts Yay!

I am happy, truly happy
Hard work is ahead of me, but favour is also.

I have learnt to look at God through hard times
Pray and not complain or grumble
I have learnt to trust God for tomorrow
and give Him the things I cannot handle to sort out
I have had so many dreams, not so good.

But I am trusting God on this and breaking bread...
I am grateful for the speaking blood of the covenant
Jesus cut a covenant with me and that day is still my greatest.

I am blessed on all sides.
I am blessed so much it is pouring out of me
I am not perfect but then I don't want to be
I have known the fullness of God in my imperfections
Without my imperfections I may not have sought God so much
and He would have had a difficult time finding me

Through God and through the journey of my love
I have learnt about the love of God, heard about His promised
Experienced His promises, learnt to hear from God
That is a treasure that I can't say thank you enough for.

Because of my journey I have heard about that thing called 'spiritism'
I had to know what it meant because a lot of folks were confusing
the baptism of the Holy Spirit with spiritism
They are two different things, I  have spiritual reference finally
I saw it in the book of Romans or Corinthians, not sure
but it is in the bible, the word that is; and I am preparing a post.

I am thankful for the Holy Spirit's discernment and direction
Many times I could have been confused but I am thankful for the wisdom of God
that protects me and for the mercy of God that covered me and mine.

Thankful for courageous men who were able to speak the mind of God for the season and not hold back because they were embarrassed. I guess I would have been embarrassed but I am praying for courage everyday to embrace what God has for me with boldness.

I cannot be stopped, I cannot be defeated, I cannot be talked down
I have the help of the Holy Spirit and He is talking me up everyday
The more my environment tries to talk me down, the more the Holy Ghost talks me up
I have found a new Christian group that edifies me, they can't find them because
I will not be advertising them. Not everyone is my friend and I won't kid myself
So I will keep my private things private.

Peace
Joy
Love
Self control (Temperance)
Goodness
Kindness
Faith
Gentleness
Long suffering
Meekness

All these are my portion in the month of November
Against this, there is no law.

Blogging today...

There is a reason why I am a writer...

Lol (On a roll from this morning)
The Holy Spirit makes me feel lighter and He fills my mouth with good things anything I spend time just chatting in tongues and speaking His will into being...

On my way to work this morning, I was in a bus, I saw the back of a man's t-shirt, it read: "I can't get no satisfaction"by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

I believe I have heard the words before, being sung, probably in a movie. I can even figure out the rhythm, in my head, humming and all.

I always like to place myself in some other person's shoes to understand the person better or something (I am an analytical buff; the brain doesn't stop moving until it figures out what it wants).

I can't get no satisfaction, truly. At least that was the feeling that dogged my footsteps all through my teenage years. I wish I could let Mick know that he is never going to get any satisfaction from anything in this world. It wasn't made to satisfy him; only Jesus does that.

Anything else fails. I grew up with a lot of money; don't have much now, but I certainly don't feel poor, is there a feeling? I know I am rich. I may not be able to proof it to you; exactly the way I can't prove a host of other things but I know that I have them. I can't prove to you that I have peace but I know that I do. I live in a crazy world but I aint moved by it.

Why?

Because I am more conscious of my country, the one where Papa Abraham and Jesus sorted out the issue that got me citizenship. Now when I need anything from this awesomely limited world; I call out to my Dad in the city of Zion. "Hey Papa, I know you know I need this stuff; thank You because I have access to the resources of heaven right here on earth. And I get provision.
He recently changed my wardrobe and I want it changed again, my scenery is changing so I think I might have to change my wardrobe again. Thank you 'Abba' for your resources are available to fill every vacuum that me and mine have"

So now I am expecting?
No I am expecting!

Christians calling themselves wicked left, right and center. Christ didn't die for that. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, I have the life of God in me and I have the mind of Christ to boot!

Isaiah 55 says that "...his ways are not our ways..."
Nah, read again, that scripture refers to the wicked man and since my heart has been changed, I am no longer wicked, that man doesn't exist. I have the mind of Christ and I know His ways.

"To the pure, all things are pure"

Now unlearning a bunch of bad habits and wrong thinking I have picked up over  the years, I am renewing my mind as usual.

Too random

I am growing and changing
It is so difficult
Not really it is just hard work
I am closer to God
Not really
I am just more aware of Him
I miss my friends
Old ones at least
The friendship is over rated card
So not true
I know a lot of people can prove me wrong
But David did have Jonathan
Friends are not really my thing right now
My work is.
I want it to succeed
I want to be the best I can be
Tired of running on the spot
Was I running on the spot?
Not really
I can only say that I wasn't running on the spot
Because God did show up
Much to my amazement
and of course the amazement of others
Now I am tired of the spotlight
I even hate it
I didn't ask for it
Worse I can't control
Some people don't even know you
And yet they hate you
I wonder what planet they are from
How can you hate someone you don't know

Phase 2
I know that you are keeping track of this phase
But it just seems so slow
I know what to do
I really do
Or at least I will know what to do at the right time
Just really done with all the drama
Only because I have heard from you
...
This doesn't make any sense
Well it shouldn't
I wrote it just so
It makes no meaning to anyone else
But me

Blogging of life!
Let me call it an abstract poem.

In other news, I am interviewing this very funny guy on twitter
Look out for the interview.

What's happening?

I am exploring...

Yeah, I have gotten a lot of people's comments, 'girl yi o serious'
All I say is "Bite Me"
I am exploring, I think He has gifted me with more
and if I choose to explore it, that's fine, I will make discoveries.

Meanwhile I am learning a lot o
I got my blogs tested
How readable is my blog?
Check yours at read-able (Just click)
I went like 'yay' when it told me that 11 and 12 year-old adolescent peeps
can read my site easily so I should be expecting more traffic around here.

I discovered what Copyscape is. (You can click also)
That is $5 overhead cost o but its necessary
I wrote something for some foreigner (my idea of racism) and he
mailed me back to say it didn't pass copyscape.

So to be an excellent writer, being good was the least of my worries
Every time I write something, I have to run it through that copyscape machine
Abi it is another kind of photocopy
I promised myself when I grew up, I wouldn't become
rank xerox 'we taught the world to copy'
the nasal droning of some lady doing what passed as good adverts then
they are light years away from who we are now

Yeah
'We are the Future' (Kudos to TY Bello)
I need to be exceeding the sky o
Holy Spirit, please open this eyes to understand
I know I am so much better than this
I will be stopping here
no one read too much content or so the researchers
Of which I am one of them

One thing I am sure of:
In book knowledge I am so much smarter than last month
been reading so much, burning both sides of the candle

So many good things happening
That wick that wanted to quench, it is burning again

"...but at the scent of water, it will bud"

New Words
Girl yi o serious - very bad yoruba
Bite Me - Another style of 'whatever'
o that I say at the end of my sentence - proof that I am actually Delta; I did get influenced a little
Abi - It is pidgin English for Likely, lol

Random thoughts in my favorite month...

Okay
I have a scripture that has been preying on ma mind
It's usually a good thing, I just can't get it out of my mind until I find out what I need to.


For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. KJV

Wow!
When I pray in an unknown tongues my spirit is praying.
That is just so awesome.

A lot of times, my mind does not even know what to pray
Cos my intelligence is limited in what to pray about and how to pray
But glory to God, my spirit isn't

I think this is cool for this week
Still on

"There is that scatters yet increaseth..."

Mindblowing!
There just is no logic to this
Its spiritual truth plain and simple
It cannot and will never make sense but it is truth
I don't need to understand this; I just need to practice it!

Anything but ordinary

God said to me,
"You need to take your eyes off them so they don't color the word...just as I say is enough"

Philippians 4:6
"Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks"

I have been preoccupied for weeks
When I am not blogging you know my mind is on something else.

My meditation scripture for today is Philippians 4:6
I don't want to be among the people talking, I want to be among the listeners
When I talk too much, I fail to listen to the voice I should be focused on

What part of Philippians 4:6 don't I understand?
Father I thank You for grace to stay out of church politics, Grace o!

"Do not worry about anything..."
Yeah, the world is calling me everyday with all kinds of things, it draws me into living an ordinary life, it calls me through my eye gate, ear gate, mouth gate, it wants me to think I am simply human when my spirit knows that I am more than a man, I am a god on this earth. Yes I said it. Eat your heart out nigga  I am supposed to take my mind off them abi, I will try No I will take my mind off them and put it on the word.

...but pray and ask God for everything you need...
God knows everything I need and I have asked but that is not the reason I have proof abi evidence of the things I have asked. I have them because my Father loves me perfectly. I am not going to embellish this any further than that.

always giving thanks.
I give thanks to my Father daily. It is a part of me experientially now. I remember the time I used to criticize everything about me. Thank God those days are gone. I don't have those issues anymore, I can safely say that God's grace has carried me thus far and He is still on moi!

Spiritual eyes...

Two things that amaze me

Jairus and recognizing divinity in Jesus

I want to think like the world briefly to explain Jairus ‘predicament. Jairus has a twelve year old daughter who was ill and at the point of death. Now the bible does not say what Jairus’ idea of Jesus was before his daughter fell ill but he had certainly heard about Jesus. All kinds of people talked about Him and the good that He did (you know those who have experienced His goodness like me) and they also talked about what they considered His badness (the people who had experienced his shining like the Pharisees) they talked about his eating and drinking with sinners, they called him traitor, drunkard, friends of sinners and everything that went against their religion. But when Jairus daughter was at the point of death, Jairus went looking for this man Jesus.

You might not know the gravity of what Jairus did if you did not understand that Jairus was a leader of the synagogue. The synagogue were the Jews who were pissed that Jesus was making himself equal with God and they were convinced that he was doing His wonders by Beelzebub; they were planning to kill him and even attacked him a couple of times but Jesus always slipped out among them.
Jairus went into the public streets and bowed before Jesus, he put His confidence in the kindness of Jesus and he acknowledged His divinity. Jews bow to no one (Do you remember Mordecai from the book of Esther and the story of the three Hebrew boys; they are pretty popular because of their stand), well Jairus publicly acknowledged that Jesus was God.

I have two questions for you
1.      Have you acknowledged publicly that Jesus is God?
2.      What does that mean to you?

There is a grace that sustains and there is a grace that brings one out of situations, you need to be able to look out for the two and recognize them when you see it.


To be cont’d (I didn't get around to saying the second thing that amazed me about Jairus)

Wisdom...

There is some wisdom that you learn from scriptures:

One of the things you consider when you are hearing God's word is the might of God, His goodness and His nature of love, along with His character and attributes, who He is.

The second person you shouldn't underestimate is the enemy. He is broke of power now but he works on human limitations. Here's some things you should remember.

1. He wants to steal God's word from your heart. Why? Because if you learn how to use God's word, you will fulfill your purpose and he will fail in his mission, to get souls to go to hell with him, his destination is already sure.

2 He brings cares for other things and deceitfulness of richness to take your attention away from God's word, they are all legitimate needs but it is the fact that he succeeds in distraction you from the word, that is should he succeed?

3. He has another strategy. When you believe God's word, he brings persecution so that you will fall away from the word because of the persecution and if you fall away from the word; he achieved his purpose.

4. Only those who with a honest heart and who understand the meaning of patience are able to bring forth fruit from God's word that was planted in their heart.

God's word is always being planted. What part are you playing to ensure that your attention does not stray from the word to other things?

Learn to focus!

You have an active enemy. You must know that. God knows that also; that is why he has equipped you to win over all the wiles of the enemy. Ensure that you are putting on the whole armor of God. Don't be distracted from God's word; that is your weapon as a child of God!

The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places...

"When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving..."

I did not finish yesterday.
I did not tall no write about ...and the unbelieving...
I got the initial scripture from revelations:

When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars" (Revelation 21:8)

What does it mean to be unbelieving?

The legalistic nature of the human mind wants to dwell on whoremonger and sorcerers and idolater, not much on liars 'sef' but God cares about all of them. And without the Holy Ghost we won't be able to live the life: Zoe anyways.

What does it means to believe?
Galatians says: 

I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live BY FAITH in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20 AMP
(making some capital for the sake of emphasis)

Romans 12:3 says

For by the grace (unmerited favor of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance], but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the DEGREE OF FAITH apportioned by God to him. AMP

So it is established that we now live by faith from the book of Galatians and that everyone has a degree of faith given to us by God. That cancels out the excuses by some that their faith is nit strong enough since it is the faith of Jesus since we are inhabited by the MESSIAH, and also the ones who say they don't have any faith; the verse in Romans 12:3 checkmates you.
What is ignoble is when you have all of this and then you are armed with conversations of the heathen. 

Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]. Colossians 4:6 AMP

The above verse gives an idea about how we should talk as Christians but if our talk is vain or coarse then we cannot complain about the things that we get out of life because there is a king in you and by your words you build your aeon (world) with God or evil.

Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God]. Ephesians 5:4 AMP

If you talk filthy, indecently, silly, corrupt or sinful or make dirty jokes that are not fitting or becoming, Dwell you have made your camp with the heathen and even though you are different you will get what the heathen get. Do you ever voice your thankfulness or instead you wonder what to be thankful for, you have located yourself with the heathen. 
Voicing your thanks is not difficult. It is your nature to be thankful and gracious and pleasant and winsome and for your words to be seasoned with salt.
Since you have but one nature, which is the nature of God, those issues are not your issues except you have forgotten who you are.

Foolish words, empty words: If you have the life of God in you, that is not who you are.

So by now you gather that your conversation influences your faith, your conversation is something only you can do something about. 

A friend once said, the children of the King should speak the language of the court, there are some things you don't see kings do; they carry themselves with grace and honor because they understand whose backing they have and they speak as such.
Recognize that you have the backing of the most High God because He loved you enough to send his son to die for you. Never forget who you are, don't go to the gutter to drink when you can be drinking from the springs. 

Do change your speech and your world.
Faith follows your speaking
Not just in church but everywhere you are.

Ramblings or Truth, you decide!

When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars" (Revelation 21:8)

This statement is downright scary!

but it does something, it makes me glad to be the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

My focus though is the a part, lemme cut it out and just talk, write actually.


"When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving..."


I just want to say that I miss being a believer, easily trusting, not second guessing God.

It is sad that I second guess and I do. I am just glad He doesn't hold it against me, thank God for His mercy. If it was O.T I would probably have gone up in smoke long before I finished second guessing Him. But that is not what I want to talk write about this morning, I want to talk about this morning.

I miss when I use to jump at God's word. I heard Genesis 17 read this morning and in it, God asked Abraham to circumcise his entire family and before the chapter was done, Abraham had his entire family circumscised, had started calling sarai, Sarah and started seeing himself as Abraham as opposed to Abram.


I could argue that my generation has the issue of their love waxing cold, well Abraham had no precedence whatsoever and he was the first one to believe God, the father of faith. Now today God doesn't ask us to circumcize our male (the only peeps who still do that are the Jews, they still await the Messiah; the anointed One) the rest of us do it for health reasons and not because we are acknowledging God as Lord.


These days (our era) it is a heart circumcision, I can even argue that my heart is circumcised but my actions betray me. I work at fellowship with God but it is not as good or as consistent as I know I need. I need the word day and night, it keeps me safe, it keeps my thinking right there with God. 


I am wondering if it is ramblings today:


The bible says the fearful and the unbelieving will not enter...

If the bible says the fearful and the unbelieving shall not enter, then I am glad I am neither of those things; glory to God.

2 Timothy 1:7 says God has not given me a spirit of fear but that of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND mind. I am glad that I am of the generation that believe on the name of Jesus, that look on the person of Jesus.


I am of the class that operate as Christ on earth, doing the will of the Father,  I am the seed of God's word, born of God and born of the word, I am a joint heir with Christ, I read and study the word daily so that my mind is renewed, my family are safe and secure because I am in the ark ( a type of Christ for the new testament). because of the blood of Jesus, we are safe and secure and enjoy angelic ministration daily, God sets each and every one of us apart in a million people, we are chosen because we carry the mark of Christ on us, His favor is mighty upon us daily, a shield and a protection in Jesus name, our steps are ordered, we do not stumble in darkness because we have the light of life living in us, we are joint heirs with Christ Jesus and because of our covenant with the Lord, we enjoy His protection and covering in Jesus name, amen


...About to study the word I was talking about just now!

Guest blogger not really

Today, I learnt something from Francis Frangipani
I knew I would blog today but I was going around and around in circles and I knew that I wasn't getting the tone I wanted that was till I stumbled across the article on Francis Frangipani, he got me with his talk on what ministry was, everything in me rejected it but I knew it was truth so I listened...

"God says success is becoming Christlike".
If so, how much more successful am I last year than this year?

"If you don't carry the cross, you will lose your love

I have lost my love-walk a couple of times and those times were like being in hell on earth, there is nothing like pretending to put you in a place like hell. Sincerity is a big deal if you want to live a victorious Christian life.

"In fact, I have discovered that only to the degree that we die to self do we lead others. Everything else is just religion without power".

Am I willing to die to self in many things? My flesh always says no. By that, I am not surprised. But my spirit is willing and since my spirit rules, I will be able to die to my flesh daily no matter what because the Holy Spirit is my leader, He is the one who leads me in predestined paths. I am willing to follow, I wonder what good will come out of this now.

In the mean time I strengthen the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit in my life, reading this scripture and doing it has done wonders for me.

2 Peter 1:5-7
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

These help to walk in the kingdom of God
Look at the word Kingdom - Kingdom.  
It refers to the King’s Domain, implying authority and lordship.  Jesus came to offer the benefits of His world to all who surrender to His rule.  The realm of God’s dominion, that realm of all sufficiency, is the realm called the kingdom.  The benefits of His rule were illustrated through His works of forgiveness, deliverance, and healing. 

If you get this, your life will be dynamite!
Do seek His kingdom!

Still learning, still growing!

Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are –face to face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiselled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it.
2 Corinthians 3:16-17 MSG Translation

God is a personal personal God, sometimes I forget and I am just doing my duty, robot-like. But when I remember that He is God, there is a peace that feels my heart that has no comparison. God is so personal that He looks beyond my church building and sees me, I matter; this is so amazing.

I could be braggadocious and say that I don’t care if He recognizes me or not but I really do. It is pretty important to me that God stops to ask me, “Child, what did I say?” not reprimanding but reminding, guiding, leading, He is God and yet He is a gentle leader.


At times, I get anxious and I try to join the rat race again (you know those things are subtle) and He says, “Child, that way is not My way, wrong direction, turn around!” not because He wants His rights at all cost but because He is leading me somewhere and only by following His way can I get to His destination for me!

I see some things and He says, “Child, no! Praise, I am working on it, remain at rest; don’t try to work things out yourself, let Me!”

Sometimes I just want to get out there and fix things cos I am a pretty good fixer, I have got a sharp brain but He says, “My purpose is better, My way is faster even if it doesn't look that way, it is stress-less, trust Me”

Then I see that my works, all of them; are proof that I don’t trust in my Father, so I stop. But when I rest in Him, confident and serving Him, He works things out to His glory, He is the author anyway; if I can trust Him to be author, then I can trust Him to be finisher.

All I need do, is what He says!

La di da



Why do I need so much convincing anyway? He made the whole earth, everything that was made was made by His word, He can make every area of my life, family, career, destiny, purpose beautiful!

#1 You’re kidding!


You’re kidding
If you think you want to put on Christ and also blend with the rest of the world
It is my opinion that a Christian should be so devoted to doing what God has said,
he/she has no time to be criticizing other Christians

If you find yourself doing that, losing your gentleness and spewing hatred towards another Christian
Be assured that you have gotten lost in the mews of comparing yourself with another
In case you are mistaken, Christianity is not a contest
It is a race against yourself to please God better today than yesterday walking in the
righteousness that is of faith
whatever your understanding of that is, is your problem
If you get the understanding right, deep down in your spirit, you will get a witness
you will know
The desire to be better than another, to tear down another, fear, guilt, the terror of not measuring up will disappear
you will be in that place where you are secure in His love, in His saving grace
And you will be fully persuaded, convinced that you are qualified for His goodness and every good thing in God
not because a man ticked you right and said, ‘nike’ with a ‘you got it right’ on his result pad
But because the most high God put His sign of approval on you
Because of the cross of Christ
You are approved, loved and accepted
No one, no argument or legal defence can make you feel otherwise
not when you have the Holy Ghost who is your legal advocate constantly defending you against the accuser; the enemy

believe me,
no, believe God’s word
just the fact that you are a Christian ensures that you are different
You will never be just another man on a street corner when you have Jesus.
who is now seated at the right hand of God
and because of the Holy Ghost
He is always present knocking at the door of your heart asking and waiting like a gentleman to see if you would let Him in and let Him bear your burdens (If you aren’t saved)
But when you are born again
You gotta accept this truth: HE LIVES IN YOU
Biology can’t explain it, physics, chemistry, logic will fail you
but it is truth all the same; its reality
Reality will witness to you, that you are God’s tabernacle
this is the greatest testimony of love
That the most high God would inhabit a man
and make Him the temple of God

A man in Christ is different from a man in the world
A man who lacks understanding will call it mystical
I call it spiritual
1 Corinthians 6:17 says same
If you don’t believe that, live it and respond to that truth
in your daily life; that is too bad

I am done with what anyone says
I am born again, born of the spirit and I make no apologies about it
I don’t even intend to prove it to you
You don’t matter
I zeroed everyone the day that I walked down that aisle and said
I accept Jesus as Lord’
If you don’t believe it, too bad, I do not live to please you
And yes, I have authority
I have the believers authority
Being a member of a church did not qualify me for authority
being a man in Christ qualified me to walk in authority

breaking-it-down

I have authority because I believe in Jesus Christ and on Jesus Christ
I believe that he was sent by God to be crucified on a cross for my sins
so that I might be free to walk boldly into God’s presence without fear, guilt or condemnation

I recognize and honour authority
but I also have the wisdom of God
Christ is my wisdom
so I walk pleasing God in all that I do
I believe Jesus will be the only one presiding in the white throne judgment
I long for that day with all that is in me
when the all-knowing only wise God will preside.
Glad that I know Him theoretically and practically
because He does exist beyond the pages of the bible
I see Him in my life daily doing His purposes and great things
I have seen Jehovah Rohi
I have seen El roi
Jehovah Mekoddishkem
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Jehovah Rapha
Jehovah Shalom
Jehovah Jireh my provider
My counselor

If you don’t know all the aspects of God or desire to experience all of God
you will not progress in many areas but it is up to you to seek Him
It is not something a Wednesday/Sunday service will do for you
It is a daily spending time with God, reading about and experiencing Him
Doing this will ensure you are not shaky in your faith
It will build your confidence in the goodness of God so that you don’t find it convenient to blend in or/and be like the rest of the world

If you want to know if God speaks, read Genesis 2-3, He spoke to Adam and Eve
read Jeremiah, he spoke to Jeremiah and showed him visions
He spoke to Isaiah and Ezekiel of the famous dead bones living again
That was God speaking to Ezekiel
He was a friend of Abraham, not a fake friend but a genuine friend who speaks with you, is concerned about your life, where you are going.

He spoke to Jesus Christ, told Him what to do, where to go, when to go, who to listen to
(Just read the Jewish feast where he yelled, "If anyone thirsts, come to me and drink")
He spoke to John on the Island of Patmos, the bible speaks of John being transported and seeing the revelations of the end.
If he can speak to John, why do you think he won’t speak to you?

God laughs
God rejoices when a soul is saved
God gets hurt and grieved
God sees
God speaks too

Can you find out more ways in which God expresses Himself?
if you look out for it while reading your bible, you will see it
It would help you get to know Him better and more
I did!
Am still doing!
