Mark 7:7-8 “Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.’ For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”
John 9:16 “Some of the Pharisees said, “This man Jesus is not from God, for he is working on the Sabbath…” (emphasis added). It is interesting that as part of their laws, the Pharisees actually forbade spitting on the Sabbath. Read the rest of this entry
Num.23:20 “Listen, I received a command to bless; God has blessed, and I cannot reverse it! 21 No misfortune is in his plan for Jacob; no trouble is in store for Israel. For the Lord their God is with them; he has been proclaimed their king.”
Rom.8:28 “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” [with emphasis].
God does not cause everything to happen to us, but God says He will cause everything happening to work for our good. I want to challenge you to take a particular area of your life that you think is problematic, Read the rest of this entry
2 Tim. 1:6 (NIV) “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
The Bible says that Moses laid his hand on Joshua and the Spirit of wisdom entered into Joshua because Moses had the Spirit of wisdom. You cannot give what you do not have.
Gen.2: 19 “So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one.”
We work because work is God’s idea. People like to paint a picture of paradise as a place where people are just sitting around, eating everything but not working. Remember the Garden of Eden? Read the rest of this entry
Jer.17:5 “The Lord says, “Cursed is the man who trusts in man, who trusts in the flesh for his strength, and whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when good comes. He will live in dry wastes in the desert….”
Yesterday, we pointed out that at first read, it is easy to think that God is harsh for cursing those people who are already experiencing a tough time. But it is important to know that God is not cursing them. God is saying they are cursed. Read the rest of this entry
Isa.49:25 “But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children” [KJV].
People knowingly and unknowingly, enter into covenants with the devil. That is why you need to be aware of it, check if it exists, and engage God to destroy it. I am not saying we should do away with culture or cultural festivals; but some of those festivals are covenants in themselves. There is a thin line between just celebrating culture and entering into the spiritual and the fetish. Some celebrations entail swimming in a river, they are covenanting you with water spirits. I pray that God will Himself, submerge everyone that has Read the rest of this entry
Ps.11:3 “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” [KJV]
God destined man to succeed. But the fact that someone is destined to get somewhere, does not mean he or she will get there. And the reason is that destiny can be derailed and grounded; to think otherwise is to be naive. This is why you and I need to be serious with our lives and destinies. The fact that God has destined you to be great does not mean it is automatic. But I am saying to you again, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, your destiny will not be derailed or grounded and God will give you the grace [say amen].
Gen.27:36 “Esau exclaimed, “No wonder his name is Jacob, for now he has cheated me twice. First he took my rights as the firstborn, and now he has stolen my blessing. Oh, haven’t you saved even one blessing for me?” [emphasis added].
Really, who is the thief here? Gen.25:29 “One day when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau arrived home from the wilderness exhausted and hungry. 30 Esau said to Jacob, “I’m starved! Give me some of that red stew!” …31 “All right,” Jacob replied, “but trade me your rights as the firstborn son.” 32 “Look, I’m dying of starvation!” said Esau. “What good is my birthright to me now?” 33 But Jacob said, “First you must swear that your birthright is mine.” So Esau swore an oath, thereby selling all his rights as the firstborn to his brother, Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and lentil stew. Esau ate the meal, then got up and left. He showed contempt for his rights as the firstborn” [emphasis added]. Read the rest of this entry
