Righteous Stand

Prov.28:1 “The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” (NIV, emphasis added)

Over the next few days, we are going to be taking bold steps in life. “The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion” does not mean there are no bold wicked people, and it does not mean there are no timid righteous people. Some people are wicked and are bold about it. Read the rest of this entry

In Prayer

1 Kings 17:1 “Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, “As surely as the Lord, the God of Israel, lives—the God I serve—there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word!”

Jesus is not just pleading for mercy when it comes to us, Jesus is pleading for justice. It is unjust to punish the same sin twice; Jesus already received the full punishment for our sin on the cross of cavalry. Jesus is saying to God, ‘You have to be just with them; look at Me I died for them. Read the rest of this entry

Approved!

Psalm 106:4-5 “Remember me, O Lord, when You favour Your people. Visit me with Your salvation [when You rescue them], That I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, That I may glory with Your inheritance.” (AMP)

Let us start our time in God’s presence today by thanking Him because it is our time for favour, in the Mighty Name of Jesus. God will lay His hands upon you in the Mighty Name of Jesus and do miracles in your favour instantly, silently, and completely. Read the rest of this entry

Christ Alone

Rom.5:18-19 “Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. … because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous.”

Let me tell you the story of a student and his professor. The student completely displeased with his result, barged into the professor’s office complaining, “I do not deserve to get zero on this course. How can you give me such a grade?” Read the rest of this entry

Advocate I

John 16:7 “…I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counsellor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you].”  (AMP].

If you had the option of physically having Jesus with you everywhere you go, be your friend, solving your problems, and returning to the sender all the arrows fired at you. Or having the Holy Ghost with you, which will you choose? Most people will want Jesus with them physically. Read the rest of this entry

The Witness

John 7:45-46When 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

In Person

John 1:14 “The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father’s only Son.” (GNT).

If you have a good relationship with The Truth, you are righteous. If you have a right standing with God, you are righteous. Knowing the truth is not necessarily about being right and proving that others are wrong. You can know the truth and be wrong, but you still know the truth. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange II

Ps. 126:1-2 (KJV) “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.”

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. God is giving us beauty for ashes, from sorrow to Joy. God is giving us His joy in the place of sorrow. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange I

Job 42:5-6 “I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Sometimes, because we cannot see very far, we tend to argue with God. We look at our lives and we question God’s heart and His goodness. Why did You not do this and why did You not answer that prayer. 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
