See & Do!
Isa.43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (emphasis added).
You can almost hear the pain in God’s voice when He asks, Do you not see it? And this is usually the challenge God has with people most times. What do you see? What does a pathway through the wilderness look like? What will rivers in the dry wasteland be like? Read the rest of this entry
Ex.34:13-14 “Instead, you must break down their pagan altars, smash their sacred pillars, and cut down their Asherah poles. You must worship no other gods, for the Lord, whose very name is Jealous, is a God who is jealous about his relationship with you.”
Years ago, we went to pray with someone at her house because she was having consistent dreams of something pressing her and choking her. While we were praying, we felt there was something in her room. So, with her permission, we went into the room, Read the rest of this entry
The Nine, IV
Ps.34:1&3 “Lord! I’m bursting with joy over what you’ve done for me! My lips are full of perpetual praise. Join me, everyone! Let’s praise the Lord together. Let’s make him famous! Let’s make his name glorious to all.” (TPT)
Luke 17:17 “Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?” We have been searching for the nine and so far, we have found six. The first one listened to the voice of doubt. The second one said his healing was a coincidence. Read the rest of this entry
The Nine, II
Luke 17:17-18 “Jesus: Didn’t all ten receive the same healing this fellow did? Where are the other nine? Was the only one who came back to give God praise an outsider?” (Voice)
Yesterday, we found two out of nine; the one who listened to the voice of doubt and the one who said his miracle of healing was a coincidence. Third, the one who said, ‘too little, too late’. Unbelievable excuse and it was what actually held him back. Read the rest of this entry
Nehemiah 10:35 “We promise to bring the first part of every harvest to the Lord’s Temple year after year—whether it be a crop from the soil or from our fruit trees.”
A lot of people are confused about tithing and there is a lot of abuse on tithing. But the truth is, it does not change the fact that tithing is a principle legitimately engraved in the Word of God. I shared with you yesterday that I have been tithing for as long as I can remember. Read the rest of this entry
Worship Stance, II
1 Chr.13:14 “The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he had.’” (NIV)
2 Sam.6:20 “On David’s return, he wanted to bestow good favour on his household, but Michal, the daughter of Saul, came out to meet him… (sarcastically) The king has distinguished himself today in front of his servants’ maids. He revealed quite a lot, just as the lowest of the low might expose himself” (VOICE). Stop and picture this for a moment. You are coming from having an amazing time of worship and fellowship with God. You are charged up and taking that atmosphere to your home and then the first thing that greets you is sarcasm from the very people you are going to bless. How would you respond? David did not say, ‘You this woman, you are going to see my red eye today!’ I am sure that Michal’s attitude was not strange to David because he was not shocked. David did not let her sarcasm stop him from bestowing good favour on his household.
Your walk with God must affect your household. If you have a walk with God that is not affecting your family, something is wrong with that. If you have a walk with God that is not impacting your children positively, something is definitely wrong with that. Unfortunately, a lot of Pastor’s children do not want to hear anything about church or have anything to do with God. And it because their parents who are Pastors did not take the same attitude into their homes. Yet, we are also grateful for all of the Pastor’s children who are in church, actively engaging in true worship. David returned home after sacrificing to God and blessing God’s people, to bless his household. God expects us, as true worshippers, to take it back home and be consistent. Bless your home, bless your sons and daughters. Be the priest; take God’s Word to your household, take God’s blessings to your family. Even if they despise you, take it to them anyway. You have a duty to take God’s Word and blessings to your household. Even if they do not respect the prophet, still take it to them because that is your calling.
True worship happens When I Humble Myself Before God In Celebration. 2 Sam.6:20 “When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, ‘How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, disrobing in the sight of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!’ (NIV, emphasis added). Kings have robes, royal garments. David did not rush home to change, he disrobed in front of everybody. It can even be offensive, obviously to his wife, because that is the natural response. However, sometimes you need to be spiritual and ignore what is supposed to be a natural response. David disrobed publicly and wore an ephod as in the inserted image.
Prayer: Father, I pray that my walk with You and my work for You will impact my entire camp positively for the Kingdom of God, in Jesus Name. Amen!
John 19:14 “It was now about noon on the day of preparation for the Passover. And Pilate said to the people, “Look, here is your king!”
Today’s scripture reference is another prophetic occurrence. Jesus Himself was the Passover Lamb and they crucified [sacrificed] Him on the Friday before the sabbath of the Passover week. Hugely prophetic. Read the rest of this entry
John 19:11 “Then Jesus said, “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above…”
Yesterday, we talked about the glory confusion in the Church and how a lot of people are embracing shame because of ignorance. We need to understand that a man can have nothing except that which is given from above neither power nor glory. Read the rest of this entry
John 8:32 “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Has there been a time when all you thought you knew about life or a particular subject was shredded by the truth? Maybe you thought you were clear on a subject, then you encountered truth and realized that you did not know anything. That feeling or such experiences are actually a prerequisite for growth Read the rest of this entry
John 7:45-46 “When the Temple guards returned without having arrested Jesus, the leading priests and Pharisees demanded, “Why didn’t you bring him in?” “We have never heard anyone speak like this!” the guards responded.”
The temple guards were exclusively from the tribe of Benjamin. Israel had been occupied by Rome, Caesar so that they could not have a standing army. Historically the tribe of Benjamin is the bravest tribe among the people of Israel. Read the rest of this entry
