TO KEEP YOU FROM THE STRANGE WOMAN


20140628-011817-4697393.jpg

The strange woman, what is strange about this woman? Why do men really need deliverance from this particular type of woman? Proverbs 2:16-19; 5:3-23; 6:23-35; 7:1-27. The first episode we discussed the evil man TO DELIVER HER FROM THE WAY OF THE EVIL MAN. Proverbs 2:12-15, there we did analyze certain issues about the strange man. All for the sole reason to enlighten our sisters. In this episode, we are helping ourselves.When you carefully study the book of proverbs and to be precise from chapter one to chapter seven, the Bible dedicated a huge percentage tot talk about the strange woman and very few percentages to the evil man. Why is this woman strange? She is strange because everything about her is a mystery. It is impossible to understand her without deep discernment. No one really can understand this woman. To be able to beat her at her game you need divine intervention from heaven. Paul the apostle said in Ephesians 1:18a “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened” It means what we see most times is not the right explanation we give. May I state that this post is not referring to anyone, but it is to address the evil spirit of the end time that is making men of valor err.

To understand the strange woman let us study for a very short time, the life of the writer of most of the chapters in Proverbs. Solomon was the son of the great king David. King David fought many battles and won a lot of territories. In fact, Solomon reign was simple, Solomon inherited greatness and he actually took greatness to another level by becoming the greatest and wisest king ever.

This is the only king that dedicated a temple to God and God Himself came down and His glory filled the temple that the priest could not enter into the temple fire came down and consumed the burnt offerings God appeared to him at night in Gibeon and granted him everything a man could ever want 1Kings 3.

But Solomon inherited something from his father King David that most people will not even consider being anything serious. I keep saying it with no apology reserved,

“what happened to your father/mother will repeat itself in your life if you don’t pray your way and break loose from that.”

David had issues with women, but Solomon took it to a higher level with just only 700 wives and 300 concubines. With this great visitation and encounters with God, what really went wrong in the life Solomon? This question narrows down to one simple answer. The Strange Woman!

1Kings 11:1-5

But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go into them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.

Who is a Strange Woman? Defining the strange woman is a very difficult task, but hose who have been affected by their activities can tell you, it was a Bitter Experience! The strange woman is that person that enters your life and everything changes from better to worst instead of best. The strange woman is the destiny killer specifically placed by the enemy to alter the destinies of great men. The strange woman interferes in your walk with God. The strange woman upholds sin and justifies it.

The strange woman is the valley of sorek Valley Of Sorek. The strange woman is the fragmentary of a soul through sex THE FRAGMENTED SOUL. “SEX!”

 Here lies the bitter truth; the strange woman has entered inside the church with the strange spirit. The devil understands that Christian brothers are becoming alerted and hardly fall prey to their trap. They now come inside the house of God to trap brothers that lack the Spirit of Discernment! Yes, the Bible says “Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: Proverbs 2:1”

They camouflage it is difficult to detect them and totally impossible to detect them by your own strength. You can only save yourself when God is involved in your life. The modern day church has lost its original vision and purpose, so it is rare to see a church with the sound doctrine. We have now substituted sound doctrine with disco messages, rap messages, comedy sections, long music sections and a very very short prayer and message time. The sound doctrine that should enable our brothers to live a holy and righteous life is now watered down. That is why we have a slogan like “Come as You Are and Remain as You Want.” All these effects boil down to a people that are Powerless both Spiritually and Doctrine wise.

 Characteristics of the Strange Woman

1641824

  1. Her Physical Appearance: The appearance of the strange woman can be deceiving but it is very evident. A leopard cannot change his spots. She is dressed in a particular enticing way. Sex appeal attire, to make you lust and fall for her traps. Her looks, steps, and body language are all attractive, but her mission is to waste great lives. The strange woman flatters with her words proverbs 2:16, 7:5. She’s a smooth talker, she can talk you into anything. She’s a covenant violator proverbs 2:17. She’s loud, stubborn, never in one place, dresses in the attire of a harlot, seductive.

May I state that people dresses in accordance to the season and this has nothing to do with them. But remember MODESTY IS KEY & YOU WILL BE ADDRESSED THE WAY YOU ARE DRESSED!!! What I am discussing here is these particular classes of people that dress only to get the attention of men. The Jezebel spirit.

  1. Her Physical Path: Now brothers, you are not justified if you are caught in the trap of the strange woman because they have a known path. You should never be found in their territory because you will definitely fall prey to their snare. Psalm 1:1-6. What are the paths (ways) of the strange woman? Some brothers know very well that this particular lady is dressing in a seductive way, giving some tips and strange feeling and they decide to go visit alone! What are they expecting, Bible study section?

Proverbs 5:5 says “Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold of death.” Proverbs 1-end explains her path. The writer saw among the simple a Young Man void of Understanding. The young man was passing through her street, going the way of her house. These days many people blame the devil for their own actions.

“If you don’t want to eat the forbidden fruit, then stay away from the forbidden tree.” It is that simple! The strange woman will tell you exciting and sweet words Proverbs 7:31-21. She will navigate through the path of death for a sole reason to trap a man.

  1. Her Spiritual Damnation: Her end is bitter, Proverbs 7:22-27; 2:18-19; 5:4-5. The sole purpose of the strange woman is to leave bitterness and sorrow behind her path, where there is a permanent regret.

The spiritual consequences finally lead to the physical one. Already the spiritual effects are countless, they meet in fire for God and leave you empty. They are sent on a mission to de-anoint you from grace to grass, palace to prison and from greatness to emptiness leading to irreversible death in every are of your life.

  1. The Physical Consequences: The strange woman brings a cascade of events. One thing leads to another when one is involved with the strange woman. The final consequences are evident and no more hidden death in every aspect of life.

I knew one man, he could carry different women and maltreat his wife and kids. But something strange happened to this man, he is a civil servant and worked for over thirty years. During those years of labour, he fell into the hands of one woman, bought a land and built a house in her name. Immediately after this ordeal the strange woman chased him out. As we are talking now he is in the streets of Lagos jumping from one slum to another. He gave his life to a stranger and she successfully destroyed him.

The lesson from the strange woman is so vast, the consequences are broad. But there is hope “promises of new beginning” go back to God and reason with Him “come let us reason together”

Do not allow the pleasures you think you are enjoying now to destroy God’s plan and purpose for your life. Now is the appointed time, now is the hour of salvation. Take away the garment of sin, get wisdom, it is the principal things. In all you have, attain understanding. It is not about jumping and vibrating, the Bible says “watch and pray!” We are in the end times brothers please Take away your Garments that is stained with sin and be washed in the Blood of the Lamb. Remember James 1:13-16, the cascade starts from the heart through Lust. Then when lust gives birth to Sin and sin finally delivers a bouncing fatal Death! Death might not be physical, but of what use is a man when his destiny and ability of a man is at zero level.

There is no accidental sin, no sudden fall. Address the issue of sin now before it addresses you in public. Handle your filthiness now before it becomes public. There is a big difference on how God sees you and how you appear before Him. Take off you garment stained with sin before it becomes too late.

The way of the strange woman is bitter, you can not go in her path and comeback normal. Samson ended his great calling because of the strange woman. Don’t fire into your bosom and expect not to get burned, you cannot be innocent if you fall into the trap of the strange woman. If you fall victim is because you lack understanding, if you go into her you are killing your own self.

Brothers Fornication is a killer! “It will keep you longer than you want to stay and make you pay more than you ever bargained for.”

Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To live a successful life, you must love correction. Some might say, well others are living a worldly life and are still making it. Remember Before every man there lies a wide and pleasant road that seems right but ends in death. Proverbs 14:12. You might be enjoying now, but suddenly there is an irreversible and in correctable destruction to your life. Proverbs 7:23. Don’t let your heart decline in the ways of the strange woman. Go not astray in the path of the strange woman. Don’t spend your energy on women or your efforts on those who destroy kings Proverbs 31:3.

He that has an ear let him hear, Choose Life and shall Live, Follow Purity and Holiness and you will Survive.

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 on 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 denial 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 site of the Vision. Priority is key, Discernment is Priceless.

STAYING FOCUSED TO SUCCEED.


focus red word and conceptual target

The word FOCUS is probably one of the most used words for people aiming to be successful. Most successful people when interviewed they say one of their key principles to success was FOCUS. What is Focus? An act of concentrating interest or activity on something, the center of interest or activity. The point at which an object must be situated for it to be well defined. Pay particular attention to something. From the Biblical aspect, I define Focus as Priority. Isaiah 2:10. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.

What is Priority? The fact or condition of being regarded or treated as more important than others. When first things come first. Doing something that is regarded as more important than others. Everyone that had great success in the Bible was people that had a purpose and they focused on their goal and vision. God told Joshua that he would have Good Success if only he could Meditate day and night. This meant He needed to Focus on the Laws and Rules of God for Him to be successful. Joshua 1:8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. This verse is telling us that there are two kinds of success. Normal Success and A GOOD SUCCESS. When your meditate you focus your attention on that thing. “Your Engagements To The Laws Of God; Will Make You A Lord In What Ever You Do!” There is a man in the Bible called Elisha; this man is the definition of Focus. Elisha was the servant of Elijah. Elijah was a prophet during the era of king Ahab and queen Jezebel of Israel. After prophet, Elijah had finished disgracing the prophets of Baal in Mount Carmel and slew 450 of them in 1Kings 18. In chapter 19, king Ahab told his wife Jezebel what had happened. Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah and promised to kill him within 24 hours. Wel, the great the prophet was scared and he fled for his life. He asked God to take his life, and God told him to anoint two kings and also Anoint Elisha as a prophet in his stead.

6253.elizej_12 Elijah met Elisha plowing with twelve yolks of oxen in the field. He passed by him and cast his mantle upon him, immediately Elisha ran after him and said; “ Let me I pray thee, kiss my father & mother, and then I will follow you.” Something strange happened in verse 20! Elisha took a yolk of oxen and slew them, and prepared a meal with the INSTRUMENTS OF THE OXEN, and gave them to his people. They ate and he arose and went after Elijah to minister unto him.Elisha actually burned everything that will make him go back to the past. He needed maximum concentration to be able to serve his master. He destroyed the bridged that will make him go back to the old self. When the time came for Elijah to be taken up into heaven in 2Kings 2, Elisha knew about it, the sons of the prophets knew about it as well. “ In the Path of Greatness, you can’t hide your Potentials. You can only protect it with prayer and staying Diligent.” At this point in the life of Elisha, distraction arose from even corner, he was cast down, perplex, troubled on every side but Elisha Discouraged his Discouragements. Elisha followed his master from Gilgal-Bethel-Jericho-Jordan. At each point in time, Elijah told Elisha to wait in Bethel, Jericho and Jordan. Note that Elisha was focused on his goal, he knew what he wanted: The Double Portion Anointing; he did not allow the distractions around him to stop rom achieving his goal. Elisha told Elijah his master, “ As The Lord Lives & As Your Soul Lives; I Will Not Let Thee Go!” Distraction is the enemy of focus it can come from anybody!!! The sons of the prophets, the messengers of God, they were the available tools that the devil used to try and distract Elisha. They met him at Bethel and Jericho and asked him: “ Know that the lord will take away your master from you today? His response was so perfect, I know; I’m Aware But HOLD YOUR PEACE, BE STILL DON’T SPEAK OF IT!!” Elisha was a focus, he wasn’t ready for side talks and distractions of gossips, who said this and who said that. The double portion of the anointing was his goal. He did not allow the pain of loosing his master to overshadow his objectives. He knew what he wanted and walked towards it. When they arrived in Jordan, Elijah asked Elisha for the third time to wait here in Jordan but Elisha refused. Now the sons of the prophets stood afar and saw how Elijah used his mantle to path the river Jordan and they both passed through dry land. Elisha was focused be he knew that he will have to cross the same Jordan river to get back to his destination. After crossing Jordan, all the distracting forces and element could not do anymore harm to Elisha, they could watch from afar but they could not distract him anymore. Elisha had passed a major test. The double portion anointing was sure. “ There is a particular bridge you must cross, it is the bridge of maximum concentration in whatever you are doing. Once you cross this bridge, the spirit of distraction is not able conquer you anymore.” Elijah had to come to terms with his servant Elisha. He asked Elisha, What is it that I can do for you before am taken up into heaven? Immediately, Elisha asked for what he has been longing for, “ The Double Portion Anointing.” There was a condition; this condition had already been met before. The condition was; “ If you see me when am being taken away from you!” Well Elisha was not blind, they have crossed Jordan together. They started the journey from Gilgal-Bethel-Jericho-Jordan Elisha was focused. Prophet Elijah was taken up and his Mantle fell, Elisha cried with a loud voice.“ My father my father the chariot of Israel and the horsemen.” Elisha picked up the mantle and went straight to the Jordan River. Now Jordan River became an obstacle and Elisha must overcome this obstacle.“ For every new level you attain in life, you will surely meet a new devil.” He used the mantle and smote the waters of Jordan and said; “ Where is the Lord God of Elijah?” The waters of the Jordan River pathways for him to walk on dry land. After crossing Jordan coming back with the mantle of Elijah with him. The same sons of the prophets that were distracting him, those unfriendly friends, they were the first to testify of the Anointing upon his life. They said; “ The Spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha.” They came and Bowed themselves to the ground before him and asked him to heal the waters of Jericho. 31118_000_038_05 Now this is deep! (Remember in Joshua 6:26, Joshua placed a curse on the land). Until you prove to the world and attain certain height in life, no one is going to regard you. You have to stay focus to get the best. To be the best God has destined you to be, you have to give maximum attention to your dreams, your goals, your objectives and your destiny. When you fulfil destiny according to God’s standard, those that wrote you off, that said you will never amount to anything good and that you will never make it will be the first set of people that will ask you for solutions and help to their own problems. You don’t need money to stay focus, you only need your mind, make up your heart and decide you will not be distracted by the distractions around you.?????????

Why should you stay focused? The only answer to this question lies in 1 Corinthians 16:9. For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. We want to defeat the problems at the edge of breakthrough. There is a great door of blessings, promotions the devil will not just fold his hands and let you have them, you must beat him at his own game. You must be wise and vigilant to his devices. A simple breakthrough will change your story and history. Before every breakthrough, there’s a harder battle to fight, one of the key weapon for victory during this battle is Focus. Total concentration gives an edge towards victory in the battles of life. Every man destined to be great have a battle to win against the spirit of distraction. “At the edge/peak of your breakthrough, the devil becomes real to you.” You need total concentration to defeat the spirit of almost there, which is the spirit of Mouth Pisgah, which is the spirit of almost there. (I will blog on that someday!), the near success syndrome. Just like Elisha, Joshua Caleb, David, Joseph, Ruth, and Esther. These great men and women of God were focused people. God is not going to use a man that is easily distracted. Forget the past and press one for the price for greatness, there is a race to run, a price to win, a crown at the close of the day. You can’t afford to loose concentration. Let the glory of your future/tomorrow be the fuel that will propel you during these hard times, better days are ahead you just need to be consistent in the good things you are doing. I encourage you to have a target, aim at it, and never look back. Refuse to be distracted. People can say what ever they feel like. That shouldn’t get to you. “ The opinions of others don’t define you.” Know who you are and what God has placed inside of you. Pursue your dreams, Shoot for the Moon; if you don’t get there, at least you will land among the Stars.

God bless.

TREASURES IN EARTHEN VESSELS PART 1: ” Seeing the future from the present situations “


IMG_1004-0.JPG
The tortures of Christians by other religions or by certain groups did not start today. If you read books like ” Foxes Book Of Martyrs” or ” Tortured For Christ” you will agree with me that it has started since the beginning of the creature. Even the bible recorded detailed sufferings of the apostles after the death of our Lord. The amazing thing about the Bible and Christianity is that, it is still standing through the test of time.
Every true believer of God will face persecution at on point in time or the other. Off course it differs, but how we overcome is a proof of how well we have been preparing and how strong is our faith in God.
Isis is committing their own atrocities all in the name of religion. Despite all, some Christians in Iraq and Syria still refuses to let go of Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!!!
It makes me understand Phil 1:21 when Bro Paul said ” For to me to live is Christ and to die is Gain!!” Wow

I have come to a point in my walk with God, that if He likes let Him bless me, if He likes let Him not bless me, but No Turning Back… ” The World behind me, The Cross Before Me!” I’ve come this far by Faith!! Trust me, HE HAS NEVER FAILED ME!!!
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him Psalm 34:8
To walk with God there is a cross you must bare. Friends will let you down, family will let you down. Everything you so much put your trust in will let you down. But Jesus Never Fails.
We were not promised a smooth journey; but we have the guarantee of a safe arrival to our destination in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

When we read this text, it tells us about the Courage & Hope in all of life’s situations and predicaments.
It makes us understand the will and passion of the apostles towards the propagation of the gospel of Christ. Notwithstanding the challenges they encountered. They ” pressed towards the mark for the price of the high calling of God, through Christ Jesus.”

Our Sufferings & Patients.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

When our Lord Jesus Christ was leaving earth, He told us that we will have tribulations and trials. But He said ” Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world!” John16:33.
It means as humans we will have different challenges, it is guaranteed. Our approach towards the ups and down of life tells of how well we have been equipped.

~ We are “Troubled on every side, afflicted from different angles and in many ways” yet not Distressed. It means we are not free from any side, we are confronted always in cause of pursuing/doing the right thing. But notice one unique thing! We are not DISTRESSED. Don’t allow your situations or problems to weigh you down. Continue without looking back. The cross should be your focus, priority and your purpose.
We should have this same mind set of the apostles, We should not give up because we can see help in God.

~ We are ” Perplexed often uncertain and in doubts, of what will become of our future” but remember Jeremiah 29:11. His thoughts towards us are for good and not for evil, we will have an expected end.
Philippians 1:6 says ” we are confident of this one thing, that God which have begun the good work in us will perfect it for us.”
In all these things the Bible says ” But we are not in Despair!” Even in our greatest perplexities knowing that God is able to support us and deliver us as He has promised. We should always place our trust and hope on Him.

~ We are ” Persecuted by men”, pursued with hatred from place to place. ” Yet not forsake of God.” People may be forsaken as well been persecuted by the trials and circumstances of life. But the Bible assures us in Hebrews 13:5b that, ” He will never leave us nor forsake us!”

~ We are “Cast down and rejected ” They may in a great measure prevail, and our spirit begin to fail us. There may be fear within as well as fighting without. ” Yet we are not Destroyed!!”

We need not to have self pity. It’s not going to work at this end time. We have to encourage ourselves in The Lord like David. We need to have the mind set of Joseph, the persevering spirit of Daniel.
We should not comfort ourselves with our hardships and problem. We have to take every trials and temptation to The Lord in prayer. Just as the disciples did in the book of Acts of Apostles 4:1-34. They prayed for boldness to continue in God’s work.
The ends will always justify the means, it doesn’t matter how long it takes.
Psalm 37:37 say” mark the good man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace”
We need God’s grace, and I tell you it is more than sufficient for us.
Every hard times, trials and temptation that comes our way is a stepping stone to a new level. God will never allow what is greater than us to come our way. We can handle every hard times and bad situation. We just need to be prepared by dwelling in the word of God.
We will triumph and have a glorious victory.
Let’s all stay strong and encourage ourselves in The Lord.
God bless….
