Wait on God

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Psalms 27:14 NIV

When we become impatient and react without thinking, we can do damage to ourselves and others. Sometimes when we pray and God doesn’t respond quickly enough, we decide to take matters into our own hands and things get worse as a result. When God tells you to wait, He is saying, “Trust me with the timing, the ways and means, and you will get a better result.”

David wrote: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!” (vv. 13-14 NKJV).

Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out?

It can be tough to wait on the Lord. It’s much easier in the heat of the moment to lose your calm. Stop and look back. How did the hasty and prayerless decisions you made in the past turn out? Do you think this situation will be different? Not a chance! What do you want? Temporary relief or a permanent solution? Haste makes waste!

When you act in haste, you do things you can end up regretting and having to apologize for. Or worse, justifying! Impulsiveness got King Saul into serious trouble. Instead of waiting for the prophet Samuel to arrive and the priests to offer a peace offering to God ensuring their victory over the Philistines, Saul grew impatient, usurped the role of a priest, and offered the sacrifice himself. When Samuel asked him why, he replied, “I felt compelled” (1Sa 13:12 NKJV). And the result? “Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly…now your kingdom shall not continue’” (vv. 13-14 NKJV). So, wait on God.

A new birth

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him will not perish but have eternal life. Amen!

The objective of Jesus Christ on earth subsisted in bringing humanity to a fresh experience with God, the old way had failed thus he came to begin a new thing altogether. For a new system to come to force the old one had to be eradicated.

He came to fulfill what the Mosaic law failed to achieve since righteousness by works had proven to be difficult a new system of Grace had to be introduced. In place of being justified by works, a new system had to be introduced to mankind. God has loved mankind from the beginning of times we see that in his relationship with the Israelites how he loved and protected them.

He loved Israelites so much that whenever they followed after pagan gods, it infuriated him. How was this generation after all God had done for them, still they went after idols? A lasting antidote was needed to conserve people. Everyday people trespassed and sin ignited God to anger.

We were lost in sin, worshipping cows, monkeys, and trees so our land was cursed with infirmities. We were lost to the extent of idolizing kings, cultures, and worldly systems. Every society existed in an isolated world, different gods meant different rituals and customs. Confusion abounded and people became more wicked for whoever worshipped a different deity was a sworn enemy to a different tribe.

A new system had to come into force whereby the whole universe would worship one God. Worshipping one God meant unity, thus we became one body through the Christ. The cross reflected the unification of mankind to their creator. Our sworn enemy lucifer the father of lies and hatred was defeated on the cross, the cross became a new symbol of hope to mankind.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly].” Then He rolled up the scroll [having stopped in the middle of the verse], gave it back to the attendant and sat down [to teach]; and the eyes of all those in the synagogue were [attentively] fixed on Him. He began speaking to them: “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing and in your presence.”
Luke 4:18‭-‬21 AMP

Jesus Christ was sent to set us free from slavery. Yes, it is possible to quit alcohol and smoking, all it takes is a new birth in Christ. Nothing is impossible the gospel of Christ can change the poor and make them rich. The reason for failure is ignorance, our sworn enemy has kept people in poverty and darkness for a long time. This is the season to advance and claim what we deserve.

Why would you live your life chasing after vanity, the world has nothing to offer. Worldly fashions and beliefs are completely a trap to keep us in cognitive slavery. Adultery destroys the very essence and integrity of any marriage, shun worldly advice of experimenting with sex. God designed you to make progress thus anything wasting your time and life is a weapon of the devil.

These are the times humanity more than ever needs to give their lives to Jesus Christ. We are only stronger in Christ. The world and its ideologies have offered us nothing but merely arguments and confusion. We can’t afford to live in this darkness anymore, only Jesus Christ can offer us the light. God has never changed and his words never changed, scientists are now turning to the Bible for solutions.

It only provokes sense for us as individuals to lament our old ways and be immersed in the kingdom of God. You still have an opportunity today to submit your spirit to Christ it’s not excessively late. You have searched after the happiness the world proposed but it only got you sick, frustrated, and disappointed, why not try Jesus Christ today.

The real meaning of freedom

What really is freedom ? Are we ever free ? I have been asking myself this question for some time now.The word freedom comes from the word freo which simply mean a situation where you are not in bondage to something or someone or /in possession of particular privileges.

With that in mind being in bondage is simply a state of not getting any particular privileges. This is a difficult case , some spend years as Christians but still not getting privileges of good health. If you have a chronic problem you are now identifying with chances are you are under attack.

The privileges we have in Christ are love ,health ,riches and so forth. Being in Christ washes away all condemnation thus we no longer live in guilty. Being in Christ also means we can approach the throne of Grace with confidence without no fear at all for Jesus Christ is our advocate.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 
2 Corinthians 8:9 NIV

Most people live their life in bondage ,their mind has become accustomed to a slavery mentality , even after the yoke of slavery has been removed from their necks they can’t move from the place they were enslaved. Their mind has been programmed to taking orders from their masters ,they have lost faith in themselves and in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

God created man for dominion , He equipped man with management skills on creation .Adam was given the garden of Eden to manage .Adam was given the power to name things as his mind perceived them . Whatever he saw in an animal he would name it as such. From the outlook he separated wild animals and domestic animals. He named trees ,infact he named everything he saw , including a woman.

With all that freedom ,God only gave him one law or / condition , not to eat from the tree of life. Funny he chose to obey his wife disregarding the owner of the garden. Of course we know that snake gave them ideas ,and Eve she saw that the fruit was good for food ,but Adam ate too ,whether to please his woman to just experiment with disobedience we are not sure.

Adam sacrificed his relationship with God in trying to please his woman. The funny part about this story is that while Eve was busy discussing God’s ordinances with the devil Adam wasn’t around. The devil won Eve’s mind first and Eve simply convinced Adam …

It’s basically a tricky situation the one in charge of the garden was nowhere to be found , and Eve was just wondering around the garden alone when the snake saw an opportunity to destroy humanity.

God gave Adam the responsibility of the garden and he told him the do’s and don’ts so he was to train wife and kids about the dangers of eating fruits from that tree … but did Adam teach Eve at all?

They had freedom (possession of privileges) as long as they adhered to the rules stipulated for the Eden experience. Thus their freedom was dependent on Adam playing his part in educating his family about the importance of obeying only that single law (command).

But Adam was hibernating while Eve was going around Eden without any understanding of the importance of that law. Without a full understanding of any law , we are bound to err in judgement. Rules of the land if not properly explained ,are useless to our families.

For freedom to exist Adam had to be a priest in his family .God designed a man to be fully responsible for teaching his generation about God’s ordinances. Once man move from this responsibility the whole generation is destroyed.

We are facing the same problem in our society , our men are busy indulging in worldly pleasures and at the same time exposing their families to satan’s agenda . Whilst our man are getting intoxicated with alcohol and drugs our children are adopting homosexual tendencies from the television.

Whilst our men are occupying themselves with sports and entertainment who is grooming the kids for kingdom purposes . Our kids start drinking and smoking at a younger age and parents can’t notice anything because they are too absorbed in vanity.

Change is possible and we are here to help. Is addictions destroying your marriage contact us here .Man was created to be priest in his family, it is a man’s duty to protect and meet all the demands of his family.

You can be free from that yoke of addiction.

You can be free today ,let us help you reach your full potential .It is possible for your marriage to be restored . Change begins when man start taking full responsibility of their families.

Freedom can be yours today ..

Shalom

You need to do this it’s urgent

So the five men who had explored the land around Laish spoke. They said to their relatives, “There is an ephod in one of these houses. And there are also household gods, a carved statue, and a silver idol. You know what to do.”
Judges 18:14 ERV

The mystery or rather the effectiveness of a believer is solely based on the decisions he makes be it for or against something. An aggressive positive response to any situation or circumstance gives us the edge. The whole idea is not to judge things or condemn  but to actually be seperate from any evil connection in your midst.

A different kind of Christian is being addressed here … ,in Micah’s house there  is teraphim , ephod ,a graven image and a molten image so the last phrase is what I really want us to understand …  We see the responsibility being placed on the shoulder of a prayer warrior here … Yes they are worshipping idols … but in our culture you know what we do in these circumstances…

Teraphim (household gods) were known as givers of prosperity , they were ancestral gods carved in  human shape..the pagans worshipped these things but now we see the same idols in the midst of Israel.. So now it wasn’t a question of who owned these things but a question of getting rid of this taboo… The whole nation could not afford to perish just because one person was worshipping foreign idols.

Listen it’s true we are living in dangerous times , the devil is on the rampage destroying humanity , marriages and our children but are we going to stay idle?

No we are called to war this is the season to double-check our environment , sanctify our houses and ensure there are no idols in our midst.This is a season to take decisive action , we can’t continue living a life of sin ,God requires man and woman who are righteous and are always obedient to him. In

This is not the time to be living on the fence , decisions have to be made and it has to be now. In our houses we must not allow things that God doesn’t like. This is the time to focus our energy on God thus resist anything that might derail us from our faith.

We can’t afford to let these foreign gods dwell in our midst it is an abomination . These is the season for cleansing thus get rid of all the doctrines the enemy taught us and be true to I AM THAT I AM.

He rescued us from Pharaoh ,and with the same intensity he is destroying the Devil in his every attack he was rendered useless on the cross thus Jesus Christ made a public humiliation of him .The devil is defeated we have nothing to fear anymore ,he is only using intimidation skills to keep the masses in bondage.

He has no right to be in our midst , our finances ,our health ,our marriages and our businesses. He got no right at all , destroy every weapon he is using we need to burn down his altars and the graven images.

We refuse to be in bondage by associating ourselves ,with these gods in our midst. Sanctify yourself today remove anything linking you to these fallen gods be it addictions ,ungodly communication, pride ,envy , jealousy , ungodly soul ties. Be it ungodly habits it’s time to burn those habits .

Flee from ungodly covenants , flee adultery we can’t afford to have these household gods in our midst anymore.This is the day of your salvation come as you are though your sins are many , even if you are dying inside from sins you haven’t confessed before God will give you a second chance .

Unconfessed sins keep you in bondage , you tend to live your life with a guilty conscience and that is exactly what the enemy wants ,so that he will keep reminding you of your failures ,your downfall , your background , curses spoken against you ,ideas you believed and everything else he can use to keep you from achieving your goals.

Let’s take time today to confess all our sins , things we didn’t do ,the fears we had ,the opportunities we did not take . We need to confess our failures too , the failures you don’t talk about destroys you.Lets remove all these gods from our midst they are a black cloud these things are restricting our growth as an institution.

This is the day of our atonement thus anything reminding us of Egyptian rule and it’s system need to be wiped off from our memories. This is no longer the time to envy the slavedriver and his systems of keeping people in bondage.

For we are the children of light ,where there is light darkness has to move away. This is the season to take over authority of our destinies.Dont dwell to long on what you lost this is the season to focus our minds and energy to what the Spirit of God is doing.

We can’t afford to have the slavery mentality when we are co heirs in the kingdom of God .As co heirs in the Kingdom of God thus we have the authority to crush the system of the enemy ,destroy it so that it won’t be mentioned anymore in the future generations.

In place of what you were taught , start encrypting the laws of the Kingdom of God. Completely wipe of the database powering the enemy’s dominance in your life ,bring it to null .His dominance is a thing of the past ,we are the new generation and I AM THAT I AM is our King thus his Kingdom has come to redeem us from this yoke of slavery.

In place of the enemy’s dominance,laws and systems it is I AM THAT I AM laws and ordinances that will apply in our lives. We are the head and not the tail ,that mentality that made you a second class citizen should be utterly removed from your mindset.

No more limitations now , no earthly system can cripple us anymore for we operate on Heavenly principles . We deserve the riches of the land thus every authority descriminating against us getting our hands on the gold and diamonds of the earth should be destroyed ,it’s a spirit and it has to be dealt with.

Every arrangements ,or committees that were involved in keeping us in this cobweb of poverty should be brought to ruins. A new mindset is imperative , all these gods should be removed from our midst and real action is necessary.

This is a time for action , we have prayed long enough ,but couldn’t get results because of these foreign gods amongst us …This is the time to destroy them. Get rid of all the iniquities , anything the enemy was using to violate you it must be discarded.

Sanctify yourself therefore , do not be found wanting by entertaining foreign gods in your midst. This is our Canaan we can’t afford to ruin it by entertaining the very same gods that kept us in slavery.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:8‭-‬9 NIV

We are free already from the enemy , he is trying to tie us down by intimidation.He lost already and he knows it . His influence on our lives was destroyed a long time ago. He can’t influence your marriage and your finances he lost already .

Don’t grant him access to people in your community and those under your authority ,we are the priests of this generation the revival starts with us . And I am here to remind you not to loose focus of who you truelly are and what I AM THAT I AM requires of you.

The Son of Man Jesus Christ came to remind us to be united in the pursuit of enlarging the kingdom of God ,thus this message must reach the ends of the Earth. And all the crooked path will be made straight.

This is not the time to be idle you need to support the kingdom of God , be it evangelism , financially and in prayer. Don’t sit on the fence support the ministry of God today and it shall be well with you.

Once you devote yourself to enlarging the Kingdom of God , you are rest assured of victory in your every endeavour for we were promised security by I AM THAT I AM . Everything you own will be secured from being devoured by this enemy. Sacrifice all you have to the enlargement of the Kingdom of God thus you will be victorious.

The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you. The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
Deuteronomy 28:11‭-‬13 NIV

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.” Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.
2 Corinthians 9:8‭-‬13 NIV
