Same Power

Rom. 8:11The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”

Jesus is alive and for us, this is worthy of celebrating every single day. Jesus is alive and it is a big deal. John 14:19 In just a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you’re going to see Me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive!” (MSG, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Blazing Love

Zec. 2:5 (KJV) “For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.”

Yesterday, we established that ashes are proof of a negative progression. Wherever you see ashes, greatness was previously pre-destined, but the enemy has done this. Note that, fire only answers to fire. Fire does not answer to grammar. Read the rest of this entry

True Help

John 11:21 & 40 “Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?”

Martha and Mary had this Jesus that they loved, but the question on their minds was, “Can He help us?” They knew Jesus wanted to help, but they were not sure if He could help. Their dilemma was they were not sure if Jesus could help. Read the rest of this entry

Take A Stand

1 Kings 18:21 “Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him…”

 

Please read 1 Kings 18:20-40a. Owing to the weakness of Ahab as a king and the witchcraft of Jezebel his wife, the nation of Israel turned from the True and Living God and began to worship Baal. Baal is known as the god of rain Read the rest of this entry

Boldly & Confidently!

Heb.4:16 “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

There is nothing that can be done to crush the Church in Nigeria, the Church in every nation of the world (this bit was my addition – thinking globally). Nothing! Read the rest of this entry

Praise Worthy

Deut. 29:29 “The Lord our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.”

Dan.2:27Daniel replied, “There are no wise men, enchanters, magicians, or fortune-tellers who can reveal the king’s secret. 28 But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in the future...” [with emphasis]. Read the rest of this entry

Fully Persuaded?

Gen.2: 16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden— 17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

Eve knew God talked about death, but she did not understand the dimension of death that God was talking about. The death God was talking about was separation from God, spiritual death and she eventually died physically. Read the rest of this entry

Only Jesus

Mark 8:36 “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”

Jesus alone can authoritatively make this statement and it is because Jesus Himself was tempted in every way. Jesus was tempted to go the way of the world. Many years ago, a young man came to me for counsel. Read the rest of this entry

Today’s Scripture reference answers the question posed by today’s topic, the question of how? How are we to show up before God? The Bible tells us, boldly and confidently because of Christ and our faith in Him. Read the rest of this entry

The Path II

You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.Ps.66:12 [NIV, emphasis added].

 

Many people are jeopardizing their hard place by taking shortcuts. The shortcuts are the reason why they do not arrive in the wealthy place. The reason why it appears as if there is no wealthy place is because people insist on taking shortcuts. There is no shortcut! You need to go through the grind. Be prepared because when you are going through the grind, it will be very uncomfortable and sometimes humiliating. If I were to show Read the rest of this entry
