WHO SHALL I SEND & WHO WILL GO FOR ME? Isaiah 6:8


isaiah6

Isaiah 6:8

Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

After king Uzziah died, I prophet Isaiah saw God for the first time. The terrible connecting between the Prophet Isaiah and King Uzziah is broken. When the eyes of Isaiah were opened he said in verse 5: Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.

Like I said in our previous topic (THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD MEET AND THE PEOPLE YOU MUST MISS), certain people or groups of people should not be in our lives if we really want to become who God intends us to be.

If God was looking for a man to send in the days of Isaiah, imagine what is happening in our days now. The question is, was Isaiah not a prophet of God? Were there no other prophets during that time who could still stand in the gap? God needed a middleman.

Ezekiel 22:30. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. God said: “But I Found None!”

It doesn’t mean these prophets or servant of God were great sinner or fake. Though some were, the good ones were not just up to the standard God was looking for.

We will look at these four key points they are systematically ordered.

  1. After King Uzziah died prophet Isaiah saw God. This is strange but if you study the chronicles of the Kings you will understand who King Uzziah really was and what he did. Isaiah was a prophet in his times, king Uzziah was doing the job of a prophet/priest. Many people are occupying the wrong offices in life, people do things they are not supposed to do.

Success in every ramification is all about correct positioning.

To get God into your boat you must be doing what He endorses. You cannot be a friend of the devil and you expect God to speak and empower you for a great mission Wrong! They view of so many is blocked, like they are working under a closed heave because they operate in the wrong base/place where God will not show up. The spirit of Uzziah is common and until that spirit is terminated in our lives we won’t really be able to achieve what God intends for us.

 As soon as the prophet Isaiah saw God, he realized that he was a man with an Unclean Lips Isaiah 6:5. How does the Eye correlate to the Mouth? Why did Isaiah say he’s a man with Unclean Eyes?  It is what you see that you are bold enough to speak about.

 

  1. An angel brought live coal in his hands from the altar, and laid it upon his mouth saying;

Isaiah 6:7

“See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

The eyes influence the life of a man, what you see all the time becomes a part of you. What you see always have great control over your actions.

Job said; “I made a covenant with my eyes!” Job 31:1.

David said; “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.” Psalm 199:18.

Apostle Paul said; “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,”

When your sight is correct, your vision and purpose becomes outstanding. You see what God wants you to see, understand your mistakes and errors. This narrows you down to a fulfilled life.

 

  1. Isaiah heard the voice of the Lord. Do you know why Isaiah could not hear from God all this time? Which with a mouth will he use to answer God? The unclean lips?

If we follow look at it from this perspective, He saw God, He knew He was Unclean, He asked for Forgiveness, An Angel came and Purified his Lips and Atone for his Sins, He could now Hear God.

 

  1. The final point could only have happened because there was a cascade from verse 1. Which was: See God (Have an Encounter with Him); Understand and Acknowledge your Sins; Be Purged, Purified and made Whole; then finally you will Have the Father Son Relationship with God when you can speak with Him and relate with Him.

Knowing the mind and plans of God for your life comes only when you have this unique relationship with Him.

il_fullxfull.805700271_7bno

Finally, dearly beloved of God. Isaiah had an encounter with God, this lead to many beneficial things in his life. All these happened step after step, meaning our God is God of Order and Precision. According to Isaiah 28:10 Precepts must be upon precept. God is looking for a generation that He can be proud of. I so much believe that we can be that people. That man and woman, that boy and that girl that will boldly stand in the Gap.

Before this can happen, we need to put off the old man, take away that garment that us stained with sin. Lay aside every weight and sin that we easily fall into.

Prophet Isaiah realized this, and his life changed and never remained the same. From chapter 6 to chapter 66 (60 chapters later), Isaiah had wonderful stories and beautiful messages of restoration; prophesies for generations to come, He talked about our Savior Jesus Christ. All these event transpired because he had a dealing with God.

We can have this same story; we only need to be available. Let us yield to the call of God, and remember these four steps.

 

His visitation and power; Acknowledging our mistakes and the repenting heart; His purifying power to purge us and make us whole; Hearing His voice and call; Our resounding Yes and boldly professing Him.

God Bless.

THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD MEET AND THE PEOPLE YOU MUST MISS


Isaiah

Welcome to the new year, if you are reading this post, well I congratulate you, you made it.

The journey of life involves certain rules and regulations to be strictly followed if we want to have good success in all areas of our lives. There are certain people God has ordained for you to meet in life, likewise there are people also you must miss in life in order to attain your God given destiny.

Taking our example from the Bible, we see lots of people who became successful because of the people they met, and those that failed because of the people they met as well.

Joseph was announced to the Pharaoh because he met someone in jail, David survived the trying times of King Saul because he met Jonathan that gave his life in place of his. Samson ended his ministry and life because he met Delilah, Rehoboam the son of King Solomon lost ten kingdoms to Jeroboam because of the friends he met that advised him. Our first Text is a very renowned prophet, one of the greatest among the major prophets.

Isaiah 6:1

 “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple.”

isaiah6_1

The story of Isaiah and King Uzziah is a rare and strange story, to understand this you need to start from the first chapters when you get to the chapter 6, you read the verse 1-8 and meditate on it, there you see the real message of the story.

Uzziah was a king who started well in the beginning, but his later days was not good enough 2 Chronicles 26. Uzziah did start well but the strong man called pride entered into his life. He met the people he was supposed to miss and missed those he should have met. Isaiah was a Prophet in the era of King Uzziah, notice what the Bible says.

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I Isaiah saw the Lord.”

The simple questions are why didn’t Isaiah see God during the reign of King Uzziah? What happened during the time of Uzziah was alive? What event transpired during chapter 1-5?

pride-led-king-uzziah-to-offer-incense-at-the-temple-by-v-gilbert-and-arlisle-f-beers-from-www-visualbiblealive-com

 The answer lies in who you meet and who you miss, this has a great impact on your success and the kind of life you will live.

The connection between Isaiah and King Uzziah was a “Terrible Connection!” Uzziah was the closed Heaven between Isaiah and God, like a blockage between Heaven and Isaiah.

What is a Terrible Connection?

It is a killer at the edge of greatness, a carefully manipulated bond that should never have occurred. It is a wasting bond, a time waster, an emptier. It is planned carefully to obstruct one from achieving their divine goal. A terrible connect is made to waste, empty and render useless an individual. There are countless people who had encounters with the wrong people and wished they did not meet them.

Life is all about who you meet and who you miss, success is all about correct positioning and the right connection.

You came into this world because your parents met each other, either good or bad I leave that for you to decide and judge.

Your purpose in life is to fulfill a destiny, If you Miss Jesus, “Life will be a Shattered Dreams.”

In our journey through life, we will meet certain kinds and groups of people.

You will meet those that will:

  • Inspire you to greatness.
  • Will make you great.
  • Leave you the way they met you.
  • Impact you positively.
  • Impact your life negatively.
  • Those that will De-anoint you.

Uzziah was de-anointing Isaiah, this is a serious matter though overlooked and kept aside. The people we associate with influences the outcome of our lives. Many people have lost their lives, violated in every ramification because the met someone that took them somewhere and connected them somewhere, which triggered tragic event in their lives which could have been avoided assuming they did not meet them.

As Christians don’t just choose people for what hear, assume or see in them. Looks can be deceiving, make sure you know their right standing with God and be sure about it. The right people will propel you to greatness, the wrong people will lead you down the drain.

Finally, dearly beloved and my wonderful youth; Marry the right person so you can achieve your goals. Pray to meet the right one for you, and please pray harder so you miss the wrong person. Watch and Pray with your eyes open. Marriage is deep, and for those with a great destiny, the enemy is working tirelessly to cause them to make the wrong choice.

Abraham, Hannah, Moses, Joshua, Deborah, and others. They married who God intended for them.

“If you want to fulfill destiny then marry the right person.”

You are who you marry because two shall become one! My unmarried fellas, please FLEE FORNICATION; the Bible says Flee, not Preach

Don’t play with your Destiny on the Altar of Pleasure, you will not get it Back.

Don’t be a prayer warrior at the pillar, like Samson in Judges 16:20-31. Don’t start praying when all is destroyed. Don’t find God when He’s already gone. It will be too late to cry when the Head is Cut-Off.

Pray to God so He reveals to you who really are, this narrows your perspective in life, and lead you to the right person with ease. If God is telling and giving you sign about your association, yield to God and obey Him. Don’t get into what God is not involved in.

Samson met the wrong person and she finished it, Ahab met the devil called Jezebel and she wasted him.

Watch your associations, carefully select your friends, pray hard for your partner, Listen to God and Obey His Word. Doing all these God will Save you from every Terrible Connection.

 

God Bless.

THAT I MAY KNOW HIM. Phil 3:1-20


Him

You can be attending church for all your life and still not know Jesus. Your parent might have given birth to you inside the church, baptize you there; you grew up there in the church; later joined the choir and started singing in an Angelic manner; joined the youth ministry, yet you don’t know who the Man of Galilee Is. A preacher once preached for over 20 years and did not know Jesus was.

You might have definitely heard the name Jesus but the power in the Name might not know you.

 We need to understand this… Jesus Christ warned us about the danger of professing without faith. Matthew 7:21-23.

Some people claim to know Jesus but deep down in the type of life they live, they do not. Some confess Christ secretly but never profess Him openly.

To confess is very easy, but professing is more of a strong declaration that Jesus is Lord.

 Many tale-evangelist and many mega pastors do not mention the name of Jesus anymore… they only call the name of God. Like Seriously!!! Phil 2:5-11. The vs. 9-11 says,

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

 Many people these days say “ I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN; I ONLY HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD” My friend please take a Sit! You cannot have a Relationship with the Father without going through the Son. John 14:6.

 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

W

 Jesus said He is the only way to the Father, knowing God means having an encounter with Jesus first. If you obey God, it means your know Jesus, this implies you are with fellowship with the father. Having a Relationship with Jesus makes you automatically a Christian. This means you are Christ-Like, of course, we are not perfect, but the bible says,

“ Perfecting Holiness in the Fear of God”

As a Christian though some claim they are not, but you are called a Christian, or you’re a Christian because you’re “Christ-Like” meaning that you do everything in the way and manner Christ did it.

Having a relationship with Christ Jesus is a must priority. In john 15:1-26, Jesus was telling His disciples about associating with Him, which was their only chance of becoming an overcomer.

Many people think theology is all about Jesus. Never! There is no searching of His understanding. Obedience is a must. If we really love God we should gladly do His will.

You have to bring forth the fruits that are associated with Jesus.

You can’t tell me you’re a Christian (though you say you’re), ok agree but please where are your fruits?

 Your association with Christ will rob you of a lot of things, freedom from being and acting like the world. That’s the meaning of taking up your cross and following Jesus. Matthew 16:24.

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

 You deny yourself first, take up your cross and follow Christ. Then you will understand Philippians 3:10-11.

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”

fc322863af78306675837103a3a525b3

 The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch in Syria. The world looked at them and saw Jesus in them, they saw the characteristics of Christ, and they saw the attributes of our Lord Jesus.

They said, “ These are the Followers of Christ.” Acts 11:21.

We need this kind of identity, the world needs to know us and sees only Jesus in us. From the way we act, behave, to the way we speak. Christ must be seen, no double life, no faking it. Jesus Only, “Jesus Ever, Jesus All.”

We need to get back to basis. Galatians 2:20-21 talks about being crucified with Christ… Christ lives in us… the live in which we now live, we live only by faith of the Son of God, who love us and gives Himself for us… this implies we must be bold to talk about Jesus.

Preach Him, Live Him, and be Proud of Him.

When the chief priest and rulers of the people threatened the disciples never to preach Christ again. Instead of staying silent, they prayed for Boldness and Preached Christ even more than ever before. They could do this because they have had an encounter with Jesus. Acts 4.

In John 15:15, Jesus said we are no more servants but friends. Everything He knew about His father, He has made it known to us, He chose us. All this signifies that we carry the Traits and the DNA of God.

Jesus said, “ Greater will we do.” John 14:12.

We will get all these benefits if we associate ourselves with Christ.

Your spiritual leaders and clergymen won’t save you, only Jesus will. We need to know God for ourselves, self-righteousness will fail us.

Remember in the last days, many events will occur. We’re already in the perilous times, people love to serve only themselves. Covetousness is real, people boast in themselves than in the Lord.

We should never have a form of godliness and deny the power thereof.

Let’s come together and put away all these negative attributes and put on the character of Christ which is found in Gal 5:22-26. We need to crucify the flesh with the affections and lust thereof; pick up our cross and follow Jesus.

Finally, 2 Timothy 3:2.

Endure Hardship like a Good Soldier of Christ. Don’t just partake of the benefit, be part of the hardship. Then you will understand your place and purpose in Christ Jesus.

Stay Bless,

3 John 2. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

THE PREACHER’S UTMOST PRAYER. 1 Corinthians 9:16-27


IMG_163697742828679

1 Corinthians 9:16-27 (KJV)

16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

O’ Lord see me through, Jesus see me through, there is a race that I must run, there are victories to be won! Oh God give me power every hour to be true!!! Lord Jesus see me through!!

As ordained servants of God, there is just one goal. The crown on the head and the voice that says “ Well Done and Welcome Home.”

But how do we achieve this goal? Every true believer is a minister of God and a preacher of the gospel. May I remind you, some people were specifically called, some called themselves and some was just simple availability.

Matthew 19:12.

For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

But I tell you, God Equips the Called, He never calls the Equipped! Availability is a key ingredient in the call of God.

“If God Calls you, He will Provide for the Vision.”

Apostle Paul is our example in this study, and our study is divided into three subheadings.

The Pattern of Self-Denial, 1 Corinthians 9:16-19.
As Christians, preaching the gospel of Christ and everything Christ stands for is unavoidable. We are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

To some, we might look like fools and sound stupid, but whence we know our target and know that our goal is to win them to Christ, we ought to remain steadfast not boasting about it, nor feeling “ I have arrived.” It is a must as true Christians to preach the gospel.

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.

 Jesus Christ said; if anyone wants to be His servant, he must first denial everything including his own self, pick up his cross and follow Jesus. Luke 14:25-33, Luke 9:23.

Self-denial is a must to become a true child of God. We have to deny ourselves a lot of things, from the way speak, to the way we act. We are now a new creature; our old lifestyles have been nailed to the cross.

There’s a reward for selfless service to God and mankind. We should never abuse the gift of God upon our lives. “ Those who preach the gospel must live the gospel”

 

Serving all men, 1 Corinthians 19-23.
As workers in the vineyard, we ought to remember,

“Your Goal is very much more Important than the Role you Play.”

If we have this at the back of our mind, certainly we will preach Christ effortlessly and selflessly. Our utmost desire for should be the desire of total flexibility. I mean we have to be flexible to change in accordance to God’s words and will. Apostle Paul became four different persons on four different occasions.

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might, by all means, save some.

But notice, he was still under God’s commandments and rules. He did not break any of them to please men.

He talks about becoming a Jew so that he could win the Jews; those under the law so he could win them; those without the law; and to the weak he became weak. At the end of the day, he became all things to men, in pursuit of saving them. As fellow laborers in the vineyard, we need to study our situation before we can lead the situation.

We need to add value to our work as ministers before God is going to give us direction.

Striving for a Crown, 1 Corinthians 26-27.
This is it!

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

There is a race to run, a crown to be worn. If we truly understand this, our walk with God will have a huge impact on our service towards the propagation of the gospel of Christ. We have to run with Focus, Train & Compete with Passion, and Fight with Purpose and Master our Flesh.

 Mr. Flesh!

jmJosephAndChrist 001

Mr. flesh is one entity that refuses to let go without a fight. Romans 7:15-25, Apostle Paul was talking about the power of the flesh confronting him and trying to prevent him from serving God.

Romans 7:15

What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise.

Galatians 5:16 give us the Antidote to kill the flesh, we have to walk only in the spirit and do the things that are spiritually minded.

“Watch & Pray!” notice the bible says, Watch first. We need to observe every step we are taking and everything we are doing. Focus on the high calling of God in Christ Jesus lay aside every weight of sin and never pamper our weaknesses. Deal with our internal rubbish, confront our foundation because it will spring up and destroy our calling. We need to set our affections on the things that are above, mortify our body, (fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness). We need to put off the old man, which is lying, anger, lust, greed, pride, and filthy communication. Only then can we safeguard ourselves. It is compulsory we put on the new man and practice charity (love), which is the golden rule in becoming perfect in our walk with Christ. This guarantees our finishing well. Col 3:1-17. 

Col 4:2 &17

Finally, continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving. Please take heed to the ministry, which you have receive from God, that you may fulfill it.

3090240_1425163596.2939_updates

Have great Passion for the Work, which exceeds our Position, Gains and personal Preferences. Remain fixed on our Mission and Flexible in our Methods in Achieving it.

Remember we have to keep under our body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when we have preached to others, we ourselves should be a castaway.

Our goal and target are hearing those sayings from God when we have gone the last mile of the way, and we are resting at the close of the day. We only want to hear God say.

“ Well Done & Welcome Home My Good & Faithful Servant!”

Remembers the true Picture, less you lose sight of the Vision. Priority is key, Discernment is Priceless.

The Valley Of Restoration. Ezekiel 37:1-14


Ezek37A

Can these bones live? Can we actually come back alive from our past and dead self? Can we be totally free from the power of sin? Can the resurrecting power in the Blood of Jesus resurrect us from the grip and power of the grave? Can our dead glory come back alive? Can be breakthrough unto God’s perfect and divine plans for our lives? Can every dry bone in our lives rise again? Only God Knows!

The book of Ezekiel from chapter 36:24-38 was talking about the restoration of the nation Israel. In chapter 37, God gives a vision and symbol of the methods of its accomplishments. Verse 11 of Ezekiel 37 gives us the clue.

  • The bones, which are the whole house of Israel, who shall be living and the graves, are the nations where they dwell.

The order of the procedure is

  • Bringing the people out. (Vs 12)
  • Bringing them in. (vs 12)
  • Their conversion. (Vs 13)
  • The filling with the spirit. (Vs 14)

Resurrection is very important in our new walk with Christ. It means we are dead to sin; we’ve been crucified with Christ. It means we are no more under the law of sin but of Grace. The law is no more our schoolmaster, our flesh is dead to sin and our inner man has risen with Christ. This entails we are a New Creature.

Note: Romans 6:1-2a “ we cannot continue to live in sin, thinking grace may abound. We should not use the liberty we have as an occasion to glorify and satisfy the flesh.

The Valley of Resurrection is a place where:

Screen-Shot-2014-01-06-at-4.55.14-PM

  • The resurrection of the soul occurs from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, to a holy, heavenly, spiritual and divine life by the power of divine grace going down with the word of Christ. John 5:24-25.

God took prophet Ezekiel to a valley full of dead dry bones and asked him, can these Bones Live? The prophet answered only for answering sake, so it wouldn’t be as if he lacked faith! “Oh Lord Thou Knowest”

“In life there comes a time when the situations and difficulties we are facing challenges our faith and hope in God. Then we are asked simple questions, but the answer becomes very difficult. Not because we don’t believe in God or we have lost faith. It’s simply because the situation seems impossible. But thank God we have a God that specializes in making the impossible to become possible.”

 Let’s observe the particulars of this Vision.

  • The Hand of the Lord was upon the Prophet and He carried him to a valley full of dry bones, probably the one of Ezekiel 3:22.

When God asked him if the bones could live vs 3? Is it likely? Can thou devise how it should be done? NO said the prophet, “ I know not how it should be done, but thou knowest Lord.” He didn’t say they couldn’t live, lest it would sound a bit insulting and limiting the power of the Almighty.

Faith and hope are two key ingredients in living a life pleasing to God. We have to trust God no matter how hard and difficult the situation might seem.

  • The spoken command word to bring these dry bones back to life. Vs 4-6.

God asked him to prophesy, pray, speak, and issue a command in the name of the Lord. This means using the power of God to speak life.

“ Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

God is known to speak things to be. Ezekiel prophesying to dry disperses and scattered bones, commanding them to live must have been done only by prophecy. He had to issue a command (preach), he did so and the dead bones lived by a power that went along with the word of God, which he preached.

He must pray, he did so and the dead bones were made to live in answer to the prayer; for a spirit of life entered into them.

Back to us

There are many dead situations in our lives, so many valleys of dry bones. One thing certain and sure, the word of God can bring them back to life.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 Jeremiah 23:29

Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Speak the word of God to every area that needs resurrection in your life. God words are powerful; they have the power to bring the invisible things to visible. His words make the impossible to become possible.

Speak the power of resurrection to every dead area in your life, from sin to lust, to immoralities. It doesn’t matter how bad the situation might seem, the power of resurrection can bring you back on track. God can restore you, don’t give up on yourself. There is hope for a better tomorrow. The grace to needed to bounce back from every unpleasant situation must and only be obtained and sought by prayer.

God grace can save us without our preaching, but our preaching cannot save us without God’s grace. You need His grace to resurrect.

We must faithfully and diligently use the means of grace given to us by faith to speak life into every area of our lives. We have to discharge our trust, we must speak life as we are commanded only in the name of Jesus according to Philippians 2:5-11. Only that name has the key to unlock every dead potential in us. The power in the of Jesus makes us dead to sin, that we may have life and live it abundantly.

Speak life and see life in every situation around and within your life.

God Bless.

THE PROMISES OF A NEW BEGINNING


new-beginnings_t_nv

There come a time when a new page is needed to be open, a time when a fresh start is required. A time where decisions are on the crossroad.

The new beginning is an era of new walk with Christ Jesus, an era where carnality is nailed to the cross of Christ Jesus. The new beginning is an initial and crucial stage of a closer walk with God, a time where a solid foundation is needed for a new start. The new beginning is a fresh start where by the old foundation cannot carry the new structures and standards of God.

The new beginning is a time and season where by you forget the past: past failures, trials, defeats, problems, guilt, bondage, and calamities. And you look only unto Jesus. Hebrews 12:1-2.

New beginning is an era where credibility and honesty becomes maximum priority. A time where No is No and Yes is Yes! It’s a time when purity and holiness is no more an option, but a Divine mandate.

Promises attached to the New Beginning

Bl0__iRIUAIx0-b.jpg-large

  1. The former things are by gone.

Isaiah 42:9:

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

God is assuring us that old things are by gone. We cannot put a new wine into an old one it will sour it. A new start, prize, goal, and target are needed now.

God is promising to do new and great things in the new beginning. Better covenant, better start than we have had in times past.

Isaiah 43:18-19:

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God is promising to do greater things than He has done before. God is saying forget the former things, better days are ahead.

God will do a new thing it shall spring forth. Do you get the revelation here?

Spring Forth: This means for a new thing to happen, there must be the Planting of the Lord. Isaiah 61:3b: a time where God is going to plant new things, the seed of: greatness, prosperity, purity, righteousness, holiness, success and lots more.

God is promising to make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. God is promising us, if only we can fully trust Him. God is guaranteeing us that in the new start, He will be our Shepard and we will not lack anything good. He will be our provider. Psalm 23.

  1. The promises of Mercies and Unfailing Love.

Isaiah 43:25:

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

God is assuring us that the new start comes with total pardon. He said He has blotted out our sins. This implies the devil can no longer accuse us. The devil has no say over our lives because God Has forgiven us all.

The blood of Jesus washes us as white as snow. It cries for mercy, it speaks better things than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:24b.

God is saying, “ He will not remember our sins” our past is forgotten.

Don’t get me wrong!!!

“ Wrong doing is never right, and sin has it payday. Trust me, it is not a good payday.” But grace will find and locate us; it will help us deal with the consequences.

  1. There is complete Redemption with the New Beginning.

Isaiah 44:22:

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

Our transgression and sins are as a cloud, a thick cloud. They interpose and separate us form God. But God is still assuring us that with the decision for a new beginning, He will take away this thick cloud, this burden so we can have a better fellowship with Him.

To have a new start we only need to perform these three things

928724_854888511231689_2071300305_n

  • Walk on the High Way of Holiness: Isaiah 35:8.

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

This is the way of Godliness, the way of Holy worship, Holy conversation and most importantly: Holy living.

The way of holiness carries righteous duties in which we ought to walk and press forward with our eyes focus on Jesus, which is our ultimate goal as Christians.

  • Walk on the Old Path, the Good Old Way: Jeremiah 6:16.

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said; We will not walk therein.

This is the good old way, the old time religion. We have an Unchanging God in a Changing World. His Words, Rules and Standards remain the same!

We need to follow God and obey Him fully to benefit from this new start. It might look very difficult but it is very possible.

God wants to have a new covenant with us. Not the old ones, He wants to be our God and We His people. He wants His laws to be on the table of our hearts written there. He wants us to practice the true religion of truth and holiness.

  • Sow in Righteousness and Reap Mercy: Hosea 10:12.

Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

When you sow in righteousness, you will reap mercy. God wants us to break that fallow/harden ground of sin and worldly pleasures. We need to cleanse our heart from all unfruitful affections and lust, which are as weed and be of a broken and contrite spirit.

Finally,

  • We need to be wise and very vigilant in the journey of the new beginning. We should sow a seed of holy and righteous living. We need to return to the practice of good works according to the law of God. Lets feed our faith, so our flesh can starve and loose its grip over us: Galatians 5:16.
  • Every action is a seed sown let us sow in righteousness. Let us sow what we ought to sow (Holiness and Righteous living). Let us do what we ought to do and we shall have the benefits of it.
  • To get the full benefits of the new beginning, we need to seek God and grace to press on. “ For by strength shall no man prevail.” We can’t run this race on our own, but His grace is very sufficient for us.
  • It is time for us to seek and look for God; if we do our part, He will do His. If we sow to ourselves in righteousness, if we be willing and obedient, if we be diligent and careful to do our rightful duties in dependence upon His Grace: Then He will shower down His Grace upon us and will rain Righteousness upon us. Righteousness is what we need to practice, for by the grace of God we are what we are.

Remember: 2Corinthians 7:1.Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

We have these promises but we have to cleanse ourselves from all dirt’s of the Flesh and Spirit. WE MUST PRACTICE HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.

 

God bless. Pst Zino

Back To Bethel


/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/098/68469332/files/2015/01/img_1068.jpg
This is a story about Jacob and Bethel. Let me first refresh your memory a little bit. Abraham gave birth to Isaac, and Isaac had two sons, actually, they were twins. Genesis 25:19-28. Esau and Jacob. If you remember the Bible said, the younger will be greater than the eldest and eldest will serve the youngest. This was already stated but you trust uncle Jacob, He stole his brother birthright and later he had to run away🚶. He later retraced his step back to God. He had a dream where he saw a ladder going into heaven and there were angels going up towards heaven and down towards earth with the ladder. He woke up from that dream and said

Genesis 28:16. Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

Notice what he did in the next verses.
Genesis 28:18-22. And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.
19. And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.
20. And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,
21. So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:
22. And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

Bethel becomes, because of Jacob’s vision there. ( The name of the city was formally Luz.)
Jacob made a vow, he gave this parcel of land to God. And he also promised God that He will come back and build a house for God right here in Bethel.

When Jacob became successful, God asked him to go back to the place where he made a vow, to the place where he raised an altar for God. God asked him to go back to Bethel
Genesis 35:1. And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
In genesis 35:7, Jacob called the place El-Bethel meaning the House Of God.
What is Bethel?
• Bethel is the place where you had a divine encounter with God.
• Bethel is the covenant place. The place where you make a deal between you and God.
• Bethel is the place of U-turn, the decision making place.
• Bethel is the crossroad between success and failure.
• Bethel is the place of restoration.
• Bethel is a place where dreams are fulfilled.
• Bethel is the promise land.
• Bethel is Zion.

Bethel was dedicated to God by Jacob in Genesis 28 and 35. Many years later, something strange happened and this is where our next subtopic begins.

YOUR DEDICATION.
From the time of Jacob to the time of King Solomon are Twelve Generations. Let us go deeper a bit. After the Death of King Solomon, His son Rehoboam became king. He made a big mistake by increase the tax of the people despite the people complained. This made the kingdom to be divided. 10 tribes followed a man called Jeroboam and the tribe of Judah and the children of Levi follow King Rehoboam.

Now we have arrived at our main topic. The man called Jeroboam did something crafty, he thought he could outsmart God. To prevent the children of the 10 tribes from going to Jerusalem to worship God. He raised Two Alters. One in DAN and the other In BETHEL. 1Kings 12.
This is where dedication comes in place.

God did something very strange. He did not fight for the altar that was raised in Dan👀. Rather He contended for the altar raised in Bethel. And He personally sent a Man of God from Judah to prophesy against the altar.1Kings 13:1-10.
Why did God do that? This is because Bethel was dedicated to God.
God is compelled to protect and guide that which is given to Him. Anything or anyone dedicated to God belongs to Him.

Here lies the reality of life. In life, there are two things involved. Either you were dedicated to God or you were dedicated to the devil.
Where you were dedicated have a great impact on your life.

A woman far back in Nigeria was pregnant and she decided to give birth in the traditional way. Little did she know that it was twins she was carrying. The first child came out with ease in the house of a traditional doctor ( herbalist). During the process of the delivering of the other child, complication did arise and of course what can a traditional doctor do? They rush the woman still in labor with the second child to the hospital. On their way they decided to stop by a church, well the church was having service at the time. The pastor prayed and the woman gave birth to the second child safely. The pastor said, ” many years later when I look at the lives of both children, the difference is so clear!!” One is a great servant of God, and the other is a power servant of the devil👊🏃.

Dedication is very important. Samuel was given to God, His life was already planned even before his birth. Later he became Israel’s last judge.
Your dedication determines the kind of life you will live.

Your dedication tells a lot about your foundation. Because dedication and foundation do work hand in hand. Your dedication determines the foundation in which your life will be built.
There are many African kids born outside Africa. Some of them their parents do send their first hair, nails, and some other things to their family idols. These kids are dedicated to the idols of their father’s house.
Here in lies the tragedy of the dark race, many of them were dedicated to their family idols. That is why you see exact and distinct patterns of problems and conditions that are similar to a particular country, tribe and ethnic groups.

I remember the part I hail from in Nigeria, not too far from my local government. There is a big town close to the banks of the river Niger. When the White men arrived Nigeria those days they got to this coastal areas first. Do you know what the elders and rulers of the town did? They went to their idols and told them that they don’t want their kids to go to the White mans land!!! And trust me, Nigerians are everywhere but this particular tribe and ethnic group are very few, you can actually count them. They have been dedicated to gods of limitations.

Your dedication holds a large amount of your future. You can’t rise above the powers that are watching over you. Bethel belongs to God, God arose and fought for Bethel.

Look at the lives of many kids that their parents are Christians. It doesn’t matter the denomination they belong. God looks at the heart and hence His name is being called there, He is surely present. Check these kids out, no matter how hard the try and err away from God. They always come back to Him why? Because the belong to God.
Kids dedicated in the bible believing churches, they always end up serving God, no matter how hard they try.
Now look around you and see kids that their parents were not strong believers when they were born and up to the age of ten. Watch their lives, only a few are able to trace their steps back to God. It’s not their fault, they were dedicated to the devil. Because if you are not for God, well my dear you belong to the devil 😷.

Every year during my birthday and that of my sisters❤️ my mum❤️ gets a gift on my behalf and put it in church telling God that. I dedicate my son unto you, well you can see for yourself👏😄😘🙌❤️👌💃😊🎊😂😆. Till date, I still do the same. I don’t see myself successful outside God. Why? It’s all because I have been dedicated to God. You can’t compare my life with that of others. The things some people might do, I dare not try it. My foundation was built on Christ Jesus.

Rededicate your life to God, it doesn’t matter what had happened in the past. God is the God that goes back in time and rewrite destinies. Nothing is impossible for God to do. He changed the story of Jabez, Ruth, and Jephthah. He will sure do the same for you.

In this New Year give your all to God and watch Him uplift you in every area of your life. God is very concerned about our life and every step we take.
He is interested in you. And believe me, you will never regret your decisions.
God never fails, put your trust in him, go back to the basics of life, go back to the old time religion. God is a Man of standards and principles, He protects His own. And anything put in His care is forever safe. Don’t make this season pass you by. Let your new year resolution be a life changing decision where you surrender all to God and do His will.

God Bless❤️
