OBEDIENCE TO GOD

snap121

In Matthew 21:28-32, Jesus tells parable story to illustrate Obedience to God. A father asked his 2 sons to help work in vineyard family business in a field. The first son agreed readily and said yes but refused to go to work, never changed his mind so did not do the work. The second son said no but changed mind later went to work in the vineyard. The question asked is which of these two sons obeyed their father? Bible says it is important to be instant in season delayed obedience is not obedience so it shows lack of respect for authority. Some say the first son did said the right thing but took wrong action and changed his mind but heart did not softe perhaps later to work. Jesus tells us to readily join others because it is never too late to Serve God. Towards end of day join others to complete day’s work although earlier start is best. Parable is used to teach obedience to God instantly, obey parents, obedience and submission to authority. God is Father to Jesus Christ Son of God Perfect Example of Real Obedience to God. Jesus Obeyed His Father God unto death on Cross.

At Calvary Jesus teaches ‘yes means yes’ if duty calls to respond to Honour God and honour parents. God Words give life to all who Obey God. One’s words build up confidence, trust, encouragement, as Father Expects from us. Respect people like FATHER God KNEW Jesus Obeys God by submission to God’s Authority. Jesus was given ALL POWER and AUTHORITY in HEAVEN and EARTH but Jesus NEVER ABUSED HIS POWER AND AUTHORITY. Jesus Humblef Himself to Obey God. God is JUST and RIGHTEOUS so Instruction to His Children is Reasonable, Appropriate. The Church is the body of Christ to Serve God in Obedience. Not only to serve God but LOVE GOD, RESPECT GOD, ADMIRE GOD. GOD ALONE DOES EVERYTHING ALL THINGS WELL SO ALWAYS RIGHT. God is Worthy of Honour, Praise, Glory through Fear of God. So hear God to Give God ALL Due CREDIT FIRST then give a credit where a humble credit is due. So Jesus’ Privileged Position of Given Power and Authority, Honour did not let Good Success bolster His ego. Jesus Humbled to God and did everything through God’s Approval. God Provided Affirmation yet Jesus stayed Obedient to God throughout His life. Jesus’ Incredible Example used by God to encourage Obedience in all. In Obedience to God life starts to get better because the Fear of God is beggining of Wisdom. Church the TEACH COMPLETE OBEDIENCE TO GOD to get life right. As Sovereign God is The Centre of Focus in Christ people then focus on God more but love GOD’S people. Jesus said that the GREATEST Serves and helps God’s Children realize their destiny in God. It is all about God First, Jesus, Holy Spirit then people in Church as God’s Servant.

A pastor is leader by example not centre of attention or focus so gets angry easily when things do not go his way. Or prays for people to do what he only thinks they should do. He cannot impose his views saying he alone hears from God so Praise time is showmanship and miracles prove his high status with God. Pastors are the sherpherds as Christ the True Shepherd laid down His Life for his flock. In Bible 2 Corinthians 10:8 says God gives pastor authority to BUILD UP God’s Congregants not tear them down. 2 Samuel 5:12 says David knew God had established him for HIS people Israel’s sake.” Life existence is for all to OBEY GOD FIRST then people. Obedience to God in Christ brings a long life blessing wellbeing in life. Father God Gave Instructions in HIS WORDS Obey by LOVE of God. Jesus said if you Truly Love God Obey God’s Words. God Obedience is Appropriate required duty of love action caring , loyalty directed by God. Father GOD’S Request demands Instant Respect and Gratitude for being counted worthy to WORK with God through Jesus Name. God’s Command Obeyed Totally without rearranging an alternative time lapse.

If circumstance impossible beyond one’s control means God Knows so Requires from us what HE Designed us to do. If alternative time must is arranged to help do GOD’S Work talk to God First not just if time permits. Time is never enough but Wisdom of God Helps Prioritise work to do urgent work immediately. Can do all things in Christ who strengthens us to do good works by love action for God. Father God Expects us to do exactly as we are told by Jesus. Obedience means one in setting a good example as a believer to others. To help God’s KINGDOM live in harmony by allowing all to be involved in God’s Family Business work. Mutual Obedience brings miracles in bigger full measure. God’s PLANS lives to OBEY to trust God to bring to pass God’s Higher Thoughts and Purposes for our lives. Our obedience proves to God He can TRUST us to do His will. This parable of Father God and 2 sons are types of believers in Christ Jesus who accept, do God’s WILL or reject Christ and own thing. Some say no to God at first accept Jesus Holy Spirit so understand precious value of the soul. Those who say yes represent the few ready to yield their minds, body and souls to God. The vine is God’s kingdom work so the types of fruits harvested are people meaning the work is yielding results.They love , Glorify and Extol God so are ready to do whatever it takes to please God no matter the obstacles. The yes group dedicated provides resources to Magnify God’s Name to Glorify Christ. Yes Choice to Father God consequences impacts God’s Kindom Vineyard.

A member of the family who refuses to obey the father is not tolerated. So God does not tolerate for too long those who reject him. Also, obedience in the army, is a serious business because lives depend on it, so it is crucial to obey orders before one dare complain. In life people are expected walk in obedience, submission and humility, vice-versa to show respect to all. Similarly, in this Bible story of the father’s actions of intervention impacts 2 sons described as 2 types of people, Jesus challenged to make up their minds in God’s Kingdom. 2 brothers asked to work in vineyard in Matthew 21:28-32 interesting answers in response to their father’s instruction. The leader Abraham obeyed God by faith humility setting off to a place he did not know but believed in God so much, it became the righteousness which made him the father of all nations. A leader’s example shows obedience as he trusts God with assurance Our Father God has our best interest at Heart. We can totally trust and confidence in God by faith, believing God do as Promised Glorify Himself in our lives. Although Abraham was not perfect, he obeyed and honoured God. God the Father’s Considers HIS Children Expects consideration towards others. Leader obeys God by example complies so submits first to God with consideration to impact those led. Grape theology of Jesus Christ True Vine leads branches by His Example consideration fairness, justice with practical hands on leadership style. To help people relate in obedience in the Father God’s Kingdom.

Choice of actions and decisions made in Obedience to God helps mature vines to blossom. Support and encouragement to each other inspires the positive change to flourish in God’s Vineyard. So tender loving care, prayers, produce various types of growth in many characters. By their fruits you shall know them white light – mild green grapes are novice baby step believer need attention. Red grapes represent all BLOOD Bought Children of God. So purple grapes need extra care as lack frontal cortex requires support. Blue grapes are matured adults in faith so take on more responsibility to nurture all people they meet. Blue – black grapes senior citizens wiser with age experience faith so Bible says must guide younger ones through patience and loving care. Wild grapes aggressive, nuisance, weed hurt or inner turmoil, conflict, criticism, complaining but still loved by God and Holy Spirit Transforms their lives. The sour grapes immature tantrum loud outrageous irresponsible so stir up issues to create discord in Church. Yet Careful prayer and love helps overcome barriers. Obedience relates to a spiritual maturity wisdom level of understanding by faith. It important to request what each is able to do because God does not give us more than what we can handle in life. God also makes way of escape to conquer problem His Means. Obedience varies so depends on whether to climb a mountain, circle, tunnel through or wait for God to come to Direct us. Own prayer in the private closet first by Holy Spirit leading enables clarity of thought, ideas, to make better choices and decisions to decide best solution for Obedience. God is Dynamic so fixed previous method of Obedience may not always work exactly the same. Wise SEEK God’s Face each time in Obedience. Jesus Said He did nothing without God’s Approval though perfect Son of God, Sets good example to all to follow. The Gospel Good News is appropriate to support to give attention to types of vines, grapes pruned, tamed. Including edible grapevine branches fall away, helped to reproduce right result to bear good fruit in God’s winepress to flourish with sweet fruit, vintage juices and saved in Jesus Name. When we walk with the Lord, in the Light of His word, what a glory He sheds on our way, while we do His good will, He abides with us still, and with who will trust and obey, Trust and obey, for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. The greatest example of total obedience in leadership is Jesus Christ who obeyed God unto death on the cross.

Jesus Could call angels from heaven to Rescue Him but chose to Give His Life in Obedience as a sacrifice for all. Jesus said GREATEST is the servant as in Mark 9:35 accountable to the flock. Modern society creates impression parents or children at a certain age do not need to Obey God anymore. In world self-aggrandizement, selfishness highly valued and celebrated necessary to teach people it is a privilege to stand STRONG on God’s SIDE Honour God, parents and family. Blessings flow great opportunity to save to win souls as stars for God. The 2 sons disrespected but Father Gid Forgives in Mercy and HIS Compassion so worked later than do no work for God. Son recognised sacrifices all these years father provided for them. Old enough contribute to running family business so keen to do their part. In Church all must behave this Way with God trusting in God with confidence and sure of God’s Strength at work in their life. Obedience to God is highest yielding investment divident and rewarding. So, obey those in authority except if told to disobey God Obey God rather than men. Careful prayer, the compassionate love of God helps overcome these barriers. Obedience relates to a spiritual maturity wisdom level of understanding by faith. It important to request what each is able to do because God does not give us more than what we can handle in life. God also makes way of escape to conquer problem His Means. Obedience varies so depends on whether we must climb a mountain, circle it, tunnel through or wait for God to come to Direct us. This is own prayer in the private closet first by Holy Spirit leading enables clarity of thought, ideas, to make better choices and decisions to decide best solution for each Obedience. God is dynamic fixed method of previous  Obedience may not always work exactly. So wise to SEEK God’s Face each time in Obedience. Jesus Said He did nothing without God’s Approval though perfect Son of God. Set good example to follow.

WATCH AND PRAY

125567-300x300-1In Matthew 26:41 , watch and for  the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.Mark 13:33 says, Take ye heed, watch and pray for you know the time is of temptation and adversity. from Bible. Luke 12:15 says believers are to watch and pray without ceasing against all forms of greed for LIFE does not consist of abundance of possessions. As the world deals with troubles, challenges, recklessness, traumatic consequences, to remain strong in the Lord in the power of His Might. Perilous times are around so there is a sense of urgency to keep watch over one’s life, soul, mind and body with intercession for loved ones. Believers are reassured a thousand shall fall at their side and 10,000 at the right hand side but it shall not come near in Jesus Name. There is so much pressure to make more things, buy more, sell more while the previous purchase has not been used. Things have overtaken life so much, if one cannot afford it, one is encouraged to borrow to get in debt. God says in Proverbs 22:7, the borrower is a slave to the lender who exploits them for excessive profits to grow money to keep pace with current value.watch-and-pray-yellow_386482752To keep driving excessive unrealistic profits, decisions are made daily stretching the earth beyond its capability damaging it beyond repair. Avarice makes it impossible to stop or truly reflect on ethical ways of handling the earth. Craving appetites cause more waste from toxic things that do not decay quickly so destroy natural resources in the name of sophistication. People often feel things made easy or simply affordable means it is cheap and not the best quality so expect complicated input to cater for their demand as long it pleases the eye. The higher the price, the assumption it is the best quality and value for money, so no effort is spared in producing vanities upon vanities that cause excessive ozone waste. The speed to produce more for the sake of business overrules any concerns about the cost passed to consumers while destroying natural habitat resources which needs to be conserved and preserved for future generations. Retail therapy creates good feelings for a short while until the bill comes through.

High self-esteem and happiness are defined by material things, replacing a good old family time of story telling around the fireplace. Some wear everything once and not care to pass it on to less fortunate because their rubbish is too good for such people to use. Brand new shoes or clothes last for years, yet the consumer is blamed, their demands drives the earth to ruin as seen in amazon forests, causing domino effect of drought and tsunamis all over the world. The environment is used beyond measure yet it does not matter as long as profits sour. Waste of healthy foods, things, constant changes to efficient equipment in the name of style and design has taken precedence to compel people to buy more to get rid of the previous one although working perfectly. Instant and disposable has become the norm, yet more than enough land available and perfectly provided by God’s design for homes, businesses, is turned into thousands of acres of rubbish tips while complaining about lack of houses. Profit from insurance claims of company wastage target claims is faster so more appealing than slow pace sale of goods.

matthew-26-41-watch-and-pray-brown_1300066979Hyped exaggerated profit margin is attractive than saving earth to provide needs of all as God provided. Profits and shares outweigh real value of commodities grown for generations or years destroyed overnight. Some living on the cultivated land are displaced without food and water. The privileged few destroy, dehumanize and devalued human life. The people with the lion shares create these problems. But what does it profit to gain the whole world and lose the soul. Things are useless in after life so why let greed destroy the earth? Pyramid mammon schemes are applied daily to drive profit beyond reality to cause bubble and bust resulting in credit crunch. The earth shows signs of stress from wear and tear. Yet beneficiaries continue to destroy next virgin forest no matter what. At this rate the earth cannot continue without tragic consequences like Japan, though people assured everything was safely under control.The titanic was said to be unsinkable by God, so at what level will guerrilla business tactics take notice to change to ethical business of Biblical methods designed by God to preserve the earth. Believers are to watch and pray for God to give them power to get wealth and riches without sorrow in their houses to be enriched to become a blessing to others. Are you seeking God’s Face in prayer as Jabez did in 1 Chronicles 4:10 by applying Godly Principles for increase and prosperity. God answered Jabez indeed so increased and blessed him as he asked God to do. God helped Jabez’s global  business expansion not to cause pain, grief, sorrow, lack, deprivation, poverty, economic under – development, disadvantage, economic slavery using guerrilla business strategies and under – hand tactics to destroy other’s resources while mocking them through propaganda by bragging of billions of profit made at expense of such business decisions? One does not have to return to draconian ways to live in a cave to wear animal skins.Be caring enough to reflect on true cost effect of impact of excessive billions of dollars of massive waste daily on earth. Have a sense of duty to care responsibly, value, appreciate God’s beautiful and wonderful earth God created for all. Put on your thinking skills and do your part to love, appreciate it. Do not take it for granted by constantly exploiting it to produce things not needed. Yet all are paying for the excessive waste produced with billions of pounds thrown away each year. As you love life, alert and vigilant for your soul, so be passionate, active about this lovely, beautiful wonderful earth inherited to preserve it for future generations. As every little helps so plant more trees or sponsor those doing so. Remember, to watch out in the little daily choices to save the earth. Yes we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us to stop the excessive waste for if one can defeat 1,000, two can defeat 10,000, so you do the maths for 7+ billion people stopping excessive waste daily.

PUT ON GOD’S FULL ARMOUR

Put on the Armor of GodEvery believer has to put on the full armour of God through intense powerful prayers. Since lucifer (satan, devil) rebelled against God in Heaven with a third of the angels in Luke 10:18 and Revelations 12:7-9, satan fell like lightning on earth. So the devil continues to blind people, as recorded in 2 Corinthians 4:4, to deceive them to doubt and rebel against God’s love to lose faith, trust and confidence in God. Since the devil lost the war in Heaven the new strategy is to target God’s people to try to create fear, to waver in faith by putting difficulties, confusion, obstacles in people’s way. The angel of light’s deception is so subtle, the very elect can be manipulated if they do not protect themselves with the armour of God as stated in Matthew 24:24. The devil was once the highest archangel in Heaven and the best musician who due to pride, insolence and insubordination wanted to take over God’s Glory. God threw satan out so forever and will be destroyed in hell when the set time comes.

The devil tries to take over God’s Creation from Adam and Eve to date. Trying to deceive people from submitting to God, the Owner Creator of Heaven and Earth. Everyone who works extremely hard to design, create knows the difficulties involved. The challenges, sacrifices, time, blood and sweat it cost them. For example the Mercedes car company creates a prototype and ready to roll into production. Someone turns up to tell them the car evolved so he wants to patent and take credit for the maintenance rights. In addition that person tries to set about advertising and publishing alternative manuals for customers to use to guide them instead of depending on the original instructions of the rightful business owners. Furthermore, the one impersonating Mercedes tries to tamper with the design to manufacture and maintain Mercedes without authorisation. The owner of Mercedes company will never allow such a take over by an incompetent diabolical person to destroy their excellent business reputation.

So does the devil try to control people’s lives, minds, decisions and actions by using suggesting ideas contrary to the plan of God for them. The world subconconsciouly condones the devil more than people realise so it is necessary to get back to the original manual of God’s word to learn and understand it. It is not complicated at all it is people who create confusion with their interpretations.Read, search and choose specific verses that relate to your situation and keep repeating to yourself until it cancels out and resolves that need. Do not be discouraged because your miracle did not happen overnight. Keep on keeping on in the strength of God in faith until something happens in Jesus Name. Give thanks to God at all times. Ask God to help you put on your armour daily to cover you with Blood of Jesus in Jesus Name.

The Holy Spirit helps to open the believer’s eyes of understanding to discern spiritual truth to deal with the root of problems so not to fight against flesh and blood. The power and spirit behind some attacks is the devil, influencing certain behaviours and actions so must be tackled and dealt at source. The person being used must be prayed for and covered by the Blood of Jesus in Jesus Name. It is necessary for the believer to put on the full armour of God, the word of God, which is a two-edged sword which will not return void but accomplish whatever it sent to achieve in Jesus Name. Just as the best army fully equips its soldiers with the latest gadgets to defeat the enemy by air, land and sea, so the believer cannot go to battle without their armour of protection. The equipment by itself cannot guarantee victory because it is the military training, physical fitness, experience, teamwork, covering each other’s back from friendly fire, avoiding distractions, tactics and strategies in place that outwits and destroys the enemy totally.

image324543545

Similarly, Christian Soldiers are fully equipped by the Mightiest Warrior in battle, Jehova Nissi to claim and walk in the Victory already won for them 600,000 years ago by Christ Jesus. In Psalm 20:7 it says although some trust in chariots and horses, the believer’s spiritual weapons are not carnal but Mighty in God to pull down strongholds of the enemy of the soul in Corinthians 10:1-6. Again Matthew 10:28 says believers do not fear those who kill the body but not the soul so Fear and Obey God above all who can kill the body and soul. With God’s armour of protection and Perfect Peace of God satan is already under your feet in Romans 16:20 in Jesus Name. In Hebrews 4:12, God’s Word is Quick, Powerful, Sharper than a two edged sword, Piercing and cutting through the soul, spirit, joints and marrow and is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. So use God’s word to defeat the devil because Jesus won the battle to cause us to triumph always in Jesus Name with Thanks, Praise and Glory to God.

MORE THAN CONQUERORS

IMG_20140126_201121Believers are more than conquerors in the name of Jesus Christ because Roman’s 8:31-39, gives assurance that despite tribulations and challenges of life nothing shall separate believers from the love of God. This verses  encourage one through those moments when feeling blue to hold on steadfastly to God through Christ Jesus no matter what the issues, difficulties and the challenges faced daily. It may be issues from work, neighbours, friends, loved ones, or even the weather and storms of life. Sometimes it may be in dealing with physical, spiritual, emotional or other’s problems which weighs heavily and threatens trust and confidence in God. Whatever the situation, it is important to hold onto God in the midst of adversity. This is because of the cloud of witnesses surrounding and watching to see the manifestation of God’s Power and Faithfulness in your life. With God’s help every situation is under control although the external circumstances may seem contrary to the results expected.

God loves you deeply and is always available for you even if you do not see or hear him like your friends talk to you. He Will never turn His back on you when you draw near to God, He draws near to you. In a family, the one who makes time with parents gets to know them better and is wiser than sticking to only peers. God never separates from you though you may not feel his presence all the time. If one sins against God, He forgives, forgets, restores after repentance, in Mercy, Grace and Forgiveness as Jacob did in Genesis 32:9-31, saw God face to face, his name changed to Israel and his descendants still keep Abraham’s covenant with God today. God separated from satan, due to insolence and pride of trying to usurp God’s Glory, so was thrown out of Heaven to earth with a third of rebellious angels looking for those who let them, to devour. Abide in God’s Secret Place hide in Christ Jesus forever.

People may try to separate you from the love of God by complaining you have Obsessive, Compulsive, Jesus Syndrome (OCJS), as you talk too much about God, and spend too money on things of God by sponsoring church ministries. They may advise you to reduce the amounts given or stop entirely. Yet such people do not mind spending money on things destroying their health, taking loans to go on holidays to enjoy themselves. Some spend the whole nights partying and drinking yet mocking you for going to all night vigil to worship God. Worst of all, life does not seem different although loyal and dedicated in serving God. People cannot separate anybody grounded and rooted firmly in Christ Jesus. Politely thank, pray and bless them for interest but continue to focus on God. Well-meaning friends can lead astray because the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Discern negative people influencing concerns of life. Stop friends who try to separate Job from God’s love, healing miracle restoration. People’s decisions cannot separate you from God’s love in Jesus Name.Above all else, do not separate yourself from the love of God in the Name of Jesus Name. No matter how tough the going gets, remember you are more than a conqueror, protected in Christ Jesus’ Blood in Jesus Name. Do not be overwhelmed by problems to reject God. As a matter of fact, the greater the storm the faster the speed to run into Gods loving arms. Do not allow fear, guilt, shame, rejection by people or anything cause you to separate yourself from God. This is because God treats you differently from how people accept you. God does not define you by your sins, mistakes, past but people judge and call you by problems like ‘the woman with the issue of blood but that did she did not separate herself from Christ. The blind beggar did not let people separate him from his miracle from Jesus. Do not let anything draw or seduce you from God’s Presence, God’s Divine love and protection cover through the Blood of Jesus Christ in Jesus. Remember Jesus has given you All Power in Heaven and Earth, Power over all the power of the enemy so absolutely nothing shall by any means hurt you in Jesus Name. So you are more than Conqueror in Jesus Name with thanks and Glory to God.

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS

Screen Shot 2014-01-25 at 16.13.57It is important to mind your own business by keeping an eye on it to ensure it flourishes and grows to make profit and to expand globally. At some point however, the business becomes to big for the owner to keep eyes on all branches daily. This is why others are hired to develop and maintain growth of the business. Such a move is right and considered appropriately genuine by caring enough to seek other’s, paid for their expertise and services to keep eyes on the business interests and so people do not lean exclusively on their own understanding to avoid pitfalls and destructions. Such help is appropriate when given in good faith to build up and lift up the recipient’s business without hidden motives or agendas to boast only the fat cat’s interests and egos in the process at the business’s expense. This is why people get help and share concerns because it is believed two heads are better than one, since no one is an island one bounces ideas for feedback for progress.

There are numerous occasions when the right intervention of family, loved ones, friends, colleagues, spouses, significant others even those of enemies literally saved lives. It is true a problem shared is a problem halved by comparing inputs from other’s perspective to help clarify deep emotional issues or business concerns. If not, it can engulf one not to think clearly in the midst of stress so cause people to run helter-skelter, telling anyone who cares to listen to off-load their chest. This brings great relief for a short-time then resurfaces again but it is re-assuring to know others care about the situation.At times one is actually advised to inform others on need to know basis for future reference and witnesses. However, if not done wisely it worsens the situation of the restoration process as too many cooks spoil the broth. Claims profess surely inherited secret recipes are the best. But subsequently, ruin food instead. Too much added junk E ingredients destroy culinary perfection. Instead of specific, accurate, right weights and measurement recommended by master-chef. Similarly, in real life some people approach other’s business with too much passion, overzealous enthusiasm than required appropriately in trying to help. They do not realise they do more harm than good because they do not fully understand the boundaries of business relationships. They take other’s private confidential matters and run with it in the name of help since they feel they are always right and perfect. As the master-gossip, they ensure everyone knows about other’s issues through them yet nothing changes for the better to improve that person’s life. They enjoy gossiping as full-time job and always has the latest story but like Chinese whispers their version of the story changes totally so does not sound like nothing like what it began with. Those sharing story due to selfish fear of losing loved one in anticipation of changes, sabotages them to retain friendship. They get negative attention by preferring that friend to remain under their thumb due to blatant jealousy. So they set about destroying that loved one, as they strongly believe they know better how to deal with them than themselves through co-dependency.

They do not let them become independent, so use blackmail, issues death-threat plus manipulations to keep a tab on them. As it takes two to tango, they often hand-pick and select vulnerable, impressionable people who naively trust them. If the worm turns they have tantrums fits, huff and puff curses that return to them 7 fold in Jesus Name sealed by the Blood of Jesus. They also gang up to attack victims due narcissism for if they cannot control or gain selfishly from that person they want to punish, destroy, because they cannot stand to see their success in life without them. In another story of insubordination, rebellious accomplices were punished, swallowed and buried alive from an opening in the earth for attacking God’s anointed. Those forthcoming boldly were threatened to be bitten by God’s serpents for disobedience accused of not following instruction from ministers. Some misquote Bible verse, ‘greater love has no one than to lay down their lives for others. So take advantage of victims forced to join in to do their bidding against God’s will in fear of reprisal.Meanwhile such bullies never lay down their lives for anyone or any of those they ruin in the process. Jesus has already laid down His so no other life sacrificed can save. A classic case is that  of the priest Aaron and prophetess Miriam, the two siblings of Moses. Both though mightily used by God to support Moses’ ministry now felt they too knew God and can make decisions for Moses. Yet forgot God said touch not my anointed and do my ministers and prophets no harm. They complained about the black woman Zipporah, Moses married because they were racists who claimed they were upholding God’s warnings not to marry the heathen on the land. God allowed Miriam to be covered with leprosy and Moses had to intercede to God for mercy and for forgiveness so  Miriam was restored. This is the authority abuse in church by those taking advantage of innocent people who come to serve God under them. Many become too power – drunk so think they are above everyone else so chose to surround them selves with those who dare not complain for fear of losing their powerful position and life. Again, Hophni and Phinehas, are two junior priests and sons of the high priest Eli, took advantage of worshippers by serving best portion of sacrifices to themselves first before God’s Portion was offered on the altar.

Furthermore, they indulged in lustful acts of intercourse with women dedicated to serving in God’s Holy Temple. They were spoilt brats out of control who refused to listen to those who pleaded with them to change and stop such acts of defiance of God. So God called the child prophet, Samuel to prophesy consequences of their actions upon the whole nation and on themselves. Instead of humbling themselves to proclaim a fast, repent lament, ask God for mercy, grace and His deliverance like Nineveh repented or Esther saved the nation from racist murderers they rudely ignored warnings, so accepted punishment and destroyed the whole nation plus their wives and children. They decided they would not change for no one, not even for God or consider the lives of the innocent people dragged down by the consequences of their actions. People needlessly died for something they did not do for cooperate responsibility and accountability. Minding ones own business can protect one’s life for God to intervene on one’s behalf as God did for Moses or ruin the nation involved in the process of condoning sin against God. Ultimately, God Jehova Nissi has the Final Say So WILL Defend the defenceless and all those exploited and treated as underdogs. Keep minding one’s own business in the right way and God will deliver you, keep you safely covered by the Blood of Jesus, for no weapon formed against you will proper in Jesus Name.

Chosen in Christ

religious_024Jesus has been talked about and written about more than any other great person on earth. You watched the films, read the Bible, grown up or attended church all your life. You are biggest giver and the backbone of the church through your contributions. You sponsor ministry projects, built several churches all over the world, built orphanages. schools, given scholarships to several people so the list goes on. The question is, have you given your life to Jesus Christ and are you living in obedience to his Will? One does not have to be perfect but be connected to God through His Son Jesus Christ. One can own everything in the whole world and be celebrated but what does it profit to gain the whole world and lose your soul. Good success constantly makes plans to enjoy life but will God be impressed if invited?

Will it be an atmosphere worthy of His Sacrifice for your life? Will he be willing to partake of what you eat, drink, wear, and do? Think, reflect and be honest with yourself.

Godly Inheritance

velpicstitch20140125_212625Proverbs 1: 22 says a good person out of the goodness of their heart, leaves good inheritance for their children’s children. So is the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just to promote God’s kingdom to win souls into Heaven. So material inheritance is good to be given to children’s children. In addition, the greatest asset, inheritance, treasure and wealth to bequeth to loved ones is wisdom is eternal salvation of soul if a believer. Recently, in 2008 Mrs MacDonald donated 11 billion dollars to Salvation Army in her will. Similarly, many others accumulated wealth but realised they could not carry it with them beyond this life so are generous to charities. It is great to own wealth and riches but not to put trust and confidence in them because the power it gives lasts for a season while the greatest miracle is eternal salvation of the soul. Hollywood wealth is good but still needs Godly inheritance and joy of the lord. It is good to busy but not too preoccupied with material things only. So enjoy life and spend quality time to invest Godly wealth and moral standards God requires as deserved by all. Inheritance left for descendants today and in future must bless generations. So must not batter and bruise them because of decisions of past generations. The rules of democracy and freedom of choice and right of consent must protect children and teenagers. The cortex must develop fully to understand wealth, business management and profit increases.People cannot be encouraged to live anyhow and do exactly as they please to make them happy because it does not matter the consequences of choices as long as they feel good and enjoy themselves it is alright. Sooner or later, the enjoyment for a season becomes a life-time nightmare because a dog is for life so the next generation bears the brunt of other’s choices and decisions. Take the modern logic for example of children who can barely take care of themselves being encouraged to do as they wish with their body which belongs to God the Creator as His Temple for His  Spirit to dwell in. As long as they can afford it, dress anyhow even it looks promiscuous or creates wrong impressions attracting wrong people into their lives. The argument is the skimpier the better because as it shows off private sacred body parts of precious beautiful people including ‘I am aware’ fashion styles that hardly cover the body. Dignity and moderation are no longer the priority as it helps size up one’s choice faster than waiting to uncover it privately at the right time. Very young children who do not control purse strings have tantrums to decide their own style and looks because of what they see others do. Parents must cater to innocent demands decency to teach changes from toddlers to teenagers to dress appropriately. They must start in the first years as parents control purse strings. They must have self-respect to dress decently from home not to secretly change in a friend’s house to blend in with latest fashion. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says the body is not your own so bought with the Blood of Jesus so respect and honour God with body and wealth.

my_treasure_chest_wallpaper_y3flSimilarly, the quality of food eaten to feed God’s precious, intricately and wonderfully made body cannot be left to chance and mood swings based on affordability. One cannot eat depending on what one craves or choose  instant junk foods. Cheap readily available food eaten by people too busy to make time to cook from scratch affects brain development. Children must be supervised to learn to cook to eat healthy family meals. And continue as adults so they can cook themselves healthy. Poor diet has consequences and effects on the body. It includes lethargy, insufficient nutrition for the body, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, (ADHD) treated with strong medications to calm the children down. It affects focus, learning, concentration and increases asthmatic conditions seen in attention reduction from Jamie Oliver’s healthy school dinner programmes. Couch potato syndrome behaviour eat lots of food before the body gets basic nutrients from such foods. This the reason why people become addicted to the combination of fat, salt and sugars that provide quick metabolism but does not last long. It is difficult to undo damage once the child’s taste buds become used to such tastes. The adult has to completely stop buying junk food into the house to replace it with healthy cheaper meals if one shops wisely. In Leviticus 19:28 God warns His people not to cut body or eat certain foods that affect body. The body marked and over decorated by excess body art by believers is forbidden. According to Bible, desire purpose of God involved in lives. Body marks by witch doctors identify DNA logo point of contact marks of incision initiation design cult destiny.

Once a person consults them for protection, healing or wealth they are marred for life. The blood DNA is linked to the altar for direct access into the family for generations unless one deletes one’s family name from demonic registers through continuous deliverance, prayer and fasting until Jesus returns. The marks on the body become a point of contact that attracts demons and spiritual attacks this is why wherever people go problems seem to follow them. God warns believers not to mark their body as the heathen did to t marks the person to suffer no matter how well qualified, trained, efficient, competent, hardworking or excellent they are. It projects a spiritual body dysmorphic disorder so instead of acceptance of divine helpers they wrongly see problems, evil aura around them so reject them. They suffer, are falsely accused and punished through evil occurrences due to the embargo of curses placed on the family through ignorance, jealousy, envy, anger, revenge or error to disgrace, bring shame and reproach to the family.  Another sad story is the curse brought upon innocent children by those who rejected Jesus and pronounced curses that the Blood of Jesus be upon them and their children in Matthew 27:25. This provoked God’s Jealousy and Wrath of God so granted their permissive will which became a self-fulfilled prophecy with global persecutions. The good news is in Roman’s 11:26 God in His mercy forgives so said all Israel will be saved in Jesus Name. Others desecrate God’s Holy Temple, their body by serving beelzebub so allowed evil spirits, demons to invade their body with spirits of fear and infirmity that torment the body because the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy but God gives life more abundantly to enjoy. The devil has nothing good except to destroy, cause rebellion and unbelief against God.So watch and pray because the devil roams like about like a lion looking for those who allow it to devour them. But you are more than a conqueror in Jesus Name so will good inheritance for your children and children’s children in Jesus Name. The family must always teach people what God demands from a believer’s body. Be a good example even if you made a mistake in the past God will forgive and restore your life. Walk in holiness and righteousness ss no matter what others or family members do. You will account of yourself to God so do not let other people’s sin contaminate you to sin to cause you to go to hell. Even if a whole nation edges you to join in to conform to their worldly ways and methods, stand firm even if they feel your holiness embarrasses them remember it is better to obey God rather than men. Forgive all who sin against you so God forgive you also according Matthew 6:14. A young man shared his grandfather’s testimony in church as follows. As a child, his grandfather ate basic mealy meals everyday prepared from their own crop harvests but craved junk foods he was told was not good for him. The whole family sacrificed to contribute to save hard-earned money for his school fees so had no pocket-money. The family hardly had enough left over for the rest of the family after fees and medical bills. One day, the grandfather as a child, found money in a book. He took the chance and went on a spending spree to buy and eat junk food he was forbidden from eating. The great-grandfather angry for losing money sacrificed needs to save. Grandfather did not realise his fees hidden for the term to pay school. His father was enraged for loss so secretly consulted a witch doctor to pronounce a curse on who took money. After return from witch doctor his son suffered strange attacks and illnesses. Worst of all the curse returned against great-grandfather 7 fold and sealed unto sender with the blood of Jesus.

inheritanceThe great-grandfather died prematurely so never lived to see or enjoy the fruits of his labour. The saved, sanctified forgiven grandfather is still alive today because there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. Vengeance belongs to God even if you have the right to punish the one who hurt you. Let God’s Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness Protection Preserve your life through forgiving others in Jesus Name. Although that curse once put shame and reproach on that grandfather for years, and he stopped being the best student in the class to become the worst God had mercy on him for his naive childish sins committed in ignorance. In the past everywhere grandfather went things mysteriously disappeared as evil spirits invoked against him followed him to disgrace him. The more he helped people and worked harder the greater the shame. Eventually, after repentance, salvation, and deliverance he became born again and God revealed the source and effects of the curse from his great-grandfather upon his grandfather and saw the effects on his own father and himself. In Jesus Name, the grandfather broke the curse so God delivered him and future generations. Today that grandfather is a professor of medicine in one of the most prestigious universities on earth. People suffer from unknown generational curses, disputes over land, property, business, chieftancy, polygamy jealousy, ancestral sins inherited. But think in full control of their mind, body and soul. Yet monitoring spirits rule their lives until they come under new management of Jesus to stop suffering due to curses of jilted lovers, ex-spouses among others.

God said if fathers eat sour grapes the children’s teeth will NOT be set on edge any more. Each will account for own sins. Therefore sins will not be passed on to children’s children if they repent and seek God mercy, grace and forgiveness in Jesus Name. Character assassination by gossip defiles as mouth is used to bless and curse. Christianity is not a joke so requires holiness and righteousness in one’s body from drugs, alcohol, smoking and illicit sex which pollutes the body. Romans 12:1 urges true believers to keep their body holy as a living sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. Mohammed Ali once said every great treasure is buried deep underneath the earth so one has to dig deeper to reach it. Similarly, anything easily acquired without the Favour and Blessing of God goes easily. It is only when life processed and refined properly does it shine brightly and perfectly like Kanye West’s engagement ring to Kim Kardashian which was once a mere black coal. So, any long-term life expectation of the precious body involves respecting, valuing, caring, using the body wisely and carefully to maintain and protect it because it is sacred. God said anyone not in control of their body and soul is like a rich city full of precious treasures left widely opened for looters to collect for free. So cover family with the Blood of Jesus in prayer to God to protect family and your spirit by leaving the greatest asset of eternal life. The greatest  as a treasure of salvation in holiness and righteousness to children’s children plus material gifts decided in will in Jesus’ Mighty Name with Thanks and Glory to God.
