The Garden

Luke 13:19 “It’s like a single mustard seed that someone took and planted in his garden. That tiny seed grew and became a tree so large that the birds could fly in and make their nests in its branches. (Voice, emphasis added).

How do you establish the Kingdom as a teacher, a writer, an entrepreneur, a solopreneur, or a journalist? Jesus says the tiny mustard seed was planted in the man’s own garden. Luke 13:18-19 Then he said, “How can I picture God’s kingdom for you? What kind of story can I use? It’s like an acorn that a man plants in his front yard. It grows into a huge oak tree with thick branches, and eagles build nests in it.” (MSG, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Like A Seed

Luke 13:18-19 “…Do you want to understand the kingdom of God? Do you want Me to tell you what it’s like? It’s like a single mustard seed that someone took and planted in his garden. That tiny seed grew and became a tree so large that the birds could fly in and make their nests…” (Voice)

Yesterday we learnt that the money given to the servants was both a gift and a seed. Similarly, the gifts and wealth that God gives to us is just a seed and it is what we do with it that determines our future. My mind immediately goes to the servants that wrapped up the money and did not do anything with it. Read the rest of this entry

Significance

Luke 19:13 “Calling ten of his [own] bond servants, he gave them ten minas [each equal to about one hundred days’ wages or nearly twenty dollars] and said to them, Buy and sell with these while I go and then return.” (AMPC)

We are to remain occupied in working hard for His invisible Kingdom until He returns with the visible Kingdom. We are to occupy with the gifts, with the talents we have been given. As Christ’s ambassadors, we must be relevant in the marketplace. Read the rest of this entry

The Mandate

Luke 19:13 “Before he departed he summoned his ten servants together and charged them, ‘I am entrusting each of you with fifty thousand dollars to invest while I am away. Trade with it and put the money to work until I return.” (TPT, emphasis added).

You and I are to bring the invisible Kingdom of Jesus to bear until He returns with the physical Kingdom and His rewards. We have a mandate to bring the invisible Kingdom of God to all our situations, to all our spheres of influence. Read the rest of this entry

Engage

Luke 19:12-13 “He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” (KJV, emphasis added).

Our text over the next few days is from Luke 19:11-13 (KJV), Luke 19:15-26 (NLT), please read. The first thing we are told is that Jesus was near to Jerusalem, meaning Jesus was approaching the cross, the time He would leave His disciples and lay down His life. Read the rest of this entry

At Thy Word

Ps.107:20 “He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death.”

God’s Word is Omnipotent; it has all the Power. Yesterday, we learnt that God can create from Pre-existing Parts [Matter Or Energy] and from nothing [“ex nihilo”]. In the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37, God did a combination, creation of pre-existing parts and creation ex-nihilo. Read the rest of this entry

Living Word

Isaiah 55:11 “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it”

According to the Word of the Lord in Ezekiel 37:1, the same way the hand of the Lord was upon Ezekiel, the hand of the Lord will come upon you now in the Name of Jesus. Your Maker is laying His hands upon you even right now in the Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

Just Flow, II

Eze.37:3Eternal One (to Ezekiel): Son of man, do you think these bones can live?

Ezekiel: Eternal Lord, certainly You know the answer better than I do.” (Voice).

Ezekiel is teaching us about an aspect of God through the way He addresses God. Ezekiel knew that God could do anything, but he also knew that God would do what He wants to do. He is God all by Himself. Read the rest of this entry

Just Flow, I

Eze.37:3 Eternal One (to Ezekiel): Son of man, do you think these bones can live? Ezekiel: Eternal Lord, certainly You know the answer better than I do.” (Voice)

You prophesy your destiny by The Words That You Speak, The Name That You Bear, and thirdly by Flowing With God – The Creator. You prophesy your destiny by flowing with God – the Creator. Ezekiel 37:1-3The hand of the Lord came upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Read the rest of this entry

Word & Name

Ex. 34:5-6 “Then the Lord came down in a cloud and stood there with him; and he called out his own name, Yahweh.] The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, “Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.”

You prophecy your destiny in three ways and the first way is through The Words That You Speak. My grandmother taught us to always have the last say. She taught us to talk back and have the final say. Read the rest of this entry
