The Pursuit of God

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.(Jer. 29:13)

What will you consider your greatest achievement in life?
What will you acquire that will be your greatest satisfaction?
I am wondering what your answer will be. Your sincere answer will reveal to you the state of your own heart, for where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
Is it not written that in the last days, the love of many shall grow cold? and that men shall become lovers of themselves?

What is the purpose of life at all?
Why are we here?

We are not here to do our own thing, struggle to pay bills, get a good job, live a comfortable life,
retire early, chill on a yacht and die. Let him that has an ear, hear what the Spirit is saying; I speak
to believers. Today the standard of the world has become the standard of the church.

What unbelievers who have got nothing to do with God have, has become the goals and dreams of believers. Materialism has become the hallmark of God’s blessing in our lives. No wonder the devil is not fighting the church anymore because he is part of the church. If the Bible is the blueprint and foundation of the believer then we have missed it big time.

Okay, what was the life of Paul like, what about Peter and John? Aahhh !!!
Sorry, I know you don’t like messages like this. Honestly speaking, we were not told
what it meant to be a believer; A Death Sentence. The 1st Century church knew this, even
folks in the old testament knew this, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego knew this,
Abraham knew this. It is only the church in the 21st Century that is oblivious.

Let me end here. Have you thought of why the church in Europe is dying?
Now if the gospel was all about prosperity and comfort, then God was very unfair to
men like Paul; who was in prison frequently, beaten with a rod 3 times, given 39 lashes severally,
stoned to death, to John was as dragged from horseback, boiled in oil, drowned in water and when he
refused to die, he was exiled to the Island of death; Patmos with no food and water. Yet even at the Island of death, the heavens opened to him to download the Book of Revelation which he penned down for generations yet unborn to time.

Now when you meet someone like Bill Gates who has all the money in the world to last more than two lifetimes, who does not need healing or miracle, who is not looking for a wife or husband, not looking for rent or school fees or job; what are you going to preach to such a person to give his life to Christ?

Every other area of human life is advancing ie technology, education except Spirituality which is why we continue to be in trouble. The hunter of the souls of men continues to use the same areas of advancement to kill, steal and destroy man.

Do we wonder why people who have all the certificates from world-renowned institutions like the calibrations on a thermometer steal from the poor in society?
Do we wonder what could cause someone with great financial standing and goodwill in society to commit suicide?

It is only the genuine pursuit of God and the preaching of the pure word of God that has the power to transform the souls of men. While education is good, more education without God is a potent tool in the hands of the adversary to the end that the human race be destroyed.

What is your object of pursuit?
Are you pursuing the hand of God (what He gives) or the face of God(knowing Him intimately)?

My heart is heavy

Spiritual Diplomat

There is nothing like cold fire. All fire is hot. Fire does not compromise. Flies do not settle on a hot stove. Fire symbolizes power and aggression. It dominates and conquers. The early Christians had fire in their bones. They were not spiritual diplomats but men and women on fire for God. These days, there are many Christians who are ashamed to broadcast the name of Jesus. But the Apostles collected fire and turned their world upside down. It was side about them “..these that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;” Can we say this is the testimony of our generation? I think not!

Fire empowers God’s people to confront and destroy the works of darkness. How come we attend all manner of well-organized meetings and still produce “ice cream Christians” who cannot even quote one Scripture in the face of the devil.

Fire-emitting Christians are scarce in our time; no wonder darkness is gradually overtaking us on every side. In our time negotiation, compromise, motivational speeches, and counseling has replaced FIRE because there is no power. But it is written “..they overcame him by the blood and the word of their testimony; they loved not their lives unto death”. We almost always forget to add “and they loved not their lives unto death”. Christians are afraid of death because there is no power to deal with the works of darkness, but this was not the testimony of our fathers in the faith.

The devil is not a myth, he is real and interested in your destiny. In fact, he has his destiny for you to fulfill. He is not a diplomat so don’t negotiate with him. If you play with the snake, it will bite you. Don’t sit on the fence because there is no vacuum in the spirit. Arise thou sleeping lion and roar some scriptures, arise and spit FIRE. I am tired of grammar, I want some Power, Give me FIRE.

Be With Him

Sitting under the feet of the master and learning His ways and imbibing His nature and life is better than being all over the place in the name of working for God. He called us first to be with Him before sending us out. He that called us is the same that sends us out. We are unable to stand for Him because we have not been with Him long enough. Our impact is shallow if any because we love activities than real encounters. A form of godliness without the power of God.
Jonah was one man, but his cry brought the entire wicked civilization of Nineveh to its knees.
Today we have churches of 5,000 10,000 50,000 yet darkness is permeating and invading our borders on every side.
Jesus had only 11 men but it was said of them: these men the turned the world upside down have come here hither.
God is looking for depth, not number.

Will you examine your life today to see if you are still in the faith or just going through the motions and performing activities?
Let’s Cry to God for help from a sincere heart and repent.

Biblical View: LGBTQIAP+

As Christians, we are representatives of a superior Kingdom and we are known as such when we bring the values and the mind of the King to bear in our daily discourse. I hear this argument all the time, that let’s put religion out of this discussion and address it from an intellectual perspective. When the mind of a people is reprobate, knowledge has no value to society, and perversion and moral decadence becomes the lot of the people. An intelligent reprobate mind will only find “intelligent” ways to destroy the fundamental blocks of society and nothing else. We need more than intelligence, we need renewed minds here.

As a Chrisitan, God’s word should not only be the moral compass for navigation in a world where the borderlines between good and evil, moral and immoral have been completely eroded but also the final authority on all matters of life.

A true Christian who knows God is not indifferent to evil but loves what God loves and dislikes what God frowns on.
There are too many Christians sitting on the fence because their discernment has been desensitized.
Making arguments outside the parameters of the word of God as a believer is an indication God’s word has no authority and value in your life. By what then, is your yard-stick, what then is your scope of reference? Humanistic and secular views?

Lawyers quote from legal books, Doctors quote from medical books: A Christian must quote and have references from his Bible. There is nothing absolutely wrong with that and that does not make it less intellectual; in fact, it has much more value intellectually. Every discussion has a context and you cannot superimpose your secular, atheistic context over the Christian context.

Of course, because the contexts are different there will be conflicts. That is why every believer is sent to the marketplace of the world to make disciples of nations. Discipling is bringing on board the Christain perspective on all issues of life, not some views of a supposed Atheistic intellectual. We cannot be fishers of men if we remain among men in the same element with them. It is written, come out from among them and be ye separated unto me.

Some argue; it does not hurt anyone, it’s in their rooms. Those are tools to desensitize you and me, to be passive towards their dehumanizing activities. We believers must also do research on some of these things so we can speak with some gusto.

Their activities are not limited to some bedroom escapades between adults as supposed, but active recruitment of the young promising men and women into these acts thereby jeopardizing their future. Statistics show that there is bound to be an 18% rise in HIV/AIDS infections as a result of this behavior. At the end of the day, it hurts everybody and the world at large.

In conclusion, the church of Jesus Christ is being called upon repeatedly, both from within and without, to reappraise its historic posture toward homosexuality. Such a prevailing public challenge demands a response from not only those charged with shepherding the flock of God, but all disciples of Christ, and refuting those who oppose His truth. In the spirit of the Reformers, they must labor so that God’s truth is not obscured by the traditions of men. It is time to study deeper to show ourselves approved unto God a workman that needs not be ashamed.

A Letter From Hell

A guy slept off while
waiting for
his roommate, he
keeps late
night. As he tried
turning around,
a huge dark figure with
flamy
eyes opened his door,
he wanted
to scream but all
strength was
gone. Was it a dream or
vision?
He cant tell. It stared
deep into
his eyes and handed
him a
letter, he opened it…….
Dear Jude,
I couldn’t make it home
last night
because I died. I
thought life
after death is an
elusion but am
here lonely and afraid in
pains
and in
torments The torture
is
unending, I cant explain
it but
am dying a thousand
times in a
second.
You never told me this
place was
for real and
how to avoid it. We
grew up
together, went to
school
together and did
everything in
common but you never
told me
about this new life of
yours. I
asked you severally and
you
jokingly pushed it aside.
I was a
good man with a
charitable heart
but that didn’t count
here. The
angel told me, am
without Christ
and my name is not in
the book
of life. I asked you
yesterday
morning whats this
born again
stuff and you said you
don’t
want to bore me. Am in
pains,
can you hear the
screams, the
torments of the great
and the
less, I was told its for
eternity.
You betrayed our
friendship, you
never told me sex was
fornication but you
cautioned me
against AIDS, you never
told me
getting high was
drunkenness,
you just told me not to
drink and
drive, you never told me
lying
was sin, all you just
said was
don’t be caught. I hate
you for
this….aaaahhh
h…..aaahhhh….aaa am
dying
again here but am alive,
the
flames keeps getting
hotter. I
wish you were here.
You
deceived me to the end.
If you
had told me about
Jesus and
salvation I knew I
couldn’t be
here. I died only a few
hours ago,
I was drunk and ran
into a pole
but it seems I have
been here for
years.
Please tell my family
and all our
friends about salvation.
Am dying
again but death wont
come.
Its me, Henry.
He woke up at about
2:45AM
with a banging
headache and his phone
started
ringing, he picked it up
and what
he heard scared him to
his
bones. “Hello, Henry is
dead”.
Today is still another
opportunity
to tell someone very
dear to you
about Jesus Christ and
His saving
grace. I just told you
because I
will never want you to
end up in
HELL.
HAVE YOU TOLD
SOMEONE ABOUT
JESUS TODAY?
U can copy, share and
paste in
other group chats
please. God
will help us in this race
in the
mighty name of Jesus….

You might not be able to go around evangelising but you can just share this to caution someone.

Hunger!!!

Evans Robert, the pioneer of the Welsh Revival began to chase God as a teenager to a level that sometimes when they call him to the dining table his response would be; “I’m not hungry”

I’ve noticed a level of spiritual hunger that consumes physical hunger…
You’re so hungry for God to a level that you can tarry for days and hours without food or water.

A hunger that when it comes upon you, prayers and fastings will not be an issue.

You’re so carried away with the Deep things of God to a level that you’ve even forgotten that you’ve not eaten, you forgot to take breakfast, you forgot ur lunch and dinner and still feel like continuing.

It was this kind of Hunger that David had that made him to say;
Psalms 69:9 “For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up…”

One major sign that you’re sick is that you’ll lose your appetite.
And anyone who lack hunger for spiritual Food (the word) and Drinks (Tonguing) it’s a sign that he’s sick spiritually.

The Princes of Israel saw God at mount Sinai, and they all ate and dined with God;
Exodus 24:11 “…also they saw God, and did eat and drink.”
They were WINING and DINING with JEHOVAH.

Are there Youths Here?
You say if I fast now, I’ll become lean, and my neck will become long.
No Dear, When you fast you don’t lose weight, you lose Flesh…

Daniel in his days took just vegetables and water for days so that his body will be light; for effective studies and prayers…
And at the end, he became ten times better than his colleagues..

If you must go ahead of your generation, then you must do what others are not doing.
Matthew 5:47 ” …what do ye more than others?…”

You must be ready to drop PLEASURES and seek for TREASURES.

There’s a level of Hunger you’ll have for God you won’t have time to keep Malice.

There’s a level of Hunger for God that consumes LUST.

They say a Hungry Man is an Angry man… A man who’s Hungry for God will be Angry at Sin.

Can you please cry to God; “Oh Lord, give me Hunger…”

Newness of Life

Newness of Life

Only those who do not know Him will be ashamed of Him.
Sense knowledge stands mute in the presence of the tragedy of eternity.

Deity suffered for humanity. When He was pronounced dead, darkness over came
the earth for three hours. Creation went into mourning, when the Creator became
man’s substitute. The earth quaked; Creation was shaken to the very center by the tragedy
of Deity becoming mankind’s substitute.

The veil of the temple was rent in two from top to bottom; the Holy of Holies was no longer
the home to Jehovah. 1 Cor. 3:16 “Know ye not that ye are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
Why did Jesus come?
John 10:10b “I am come that they might have life(Zoe) and that they might have it more abundantly”

There two kinds of life identified in the Bible; Psuche and Zoe.

Psuche is the natural human life we were born with. Psuche operates with the five senses of; hearing, seeing, touching, smelling and tasting. Psuche cannot receive any information outside these sensory parameters; in fact, they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand for they are spiritually discerned. 1 Cor. 2:14. Psuche is the life inherited from the fallen man Adam. This kind of life is terribly limited and an enemy of God. For this reason, Jesus came to impact Zoe; the God-kind of life.

Zoe is the realm of the super-natural, the incorruptible life, the higher life, the life of no impossibility. Jesus demonstrated the possibilities of this life in His earthly walk; He healed the sick, raised the dead, calmed the storm, cleansed the leapers. And he said greater things shall we do, and it is because of Zoe.

This is the reason for the season. This is the end to His death. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Zoe. John 3:16. This is not an idea but a sovereign declaration of all eternity. Zoe exempts and insulates the receiver from destruction; shall not perish!; this is a heavenly legislation!
This is what Jesus brought to all those who believe in Him. Zoe is your present-day possession if you have received Him.

The other day the natural men exclaimed what manner of man is this that even the wind and the storms obey him!
They recognized that this operation is not obtainable in the realm which they lived(Psuche) but not when one is operating with Zoe. Nothing defeats Zoe. Nothing corrupts Zoe. Nothing can kill Zoe, because nothing can kill God.

You can receive Zoe right now as you believe and confess the Lordship of Jesus over your life.
Walk in this newness of Life. Live and manifest Zoe wherever you go. You have the life of God in you.

Shalom.

I Know Who I Am

I am a chosen generation; It is too late for man to reject me!
I am a royal priesthood: I am not in bondage to sin and fear; I am free!
I am a Holy nation; I walk, talk and move in His righteousness.
I am God’s own special, unique creature; I cannot be ordinary for He lives in me, moves in me and talks to me!
I am a promoter for and with God: I proclaim the praises of Him who has called me out of darkness to His marvellous light.
I am God’s garden, His vineyard and field under cultivation; I am God’s building.
I Know Who I AM! I Know Who I AM!
Glory Hallelujah!

Jesus Virus III

JESUS VIRUS 3

Dear believer, why is your heart failing and why has fear and doubt taken the best of you? I will tell you why; because you have become a Corona virus journalist. You know all the statistics and can even quote them off head but you cannot quote a verse about Gods protection for His children from the Bible, you talk about Corona virus all day with your friends and family more than you talk about Jesus and His saving power, you search and research and share every material and information about Corona but you will not share Christian materials sent or forwarded to you. Are you ashamed of Him?

Fear is and has always been a great weapon in the arsenal of the enemy. Fear paralysis faith and renders it inefficient so that it cannot produce the expected result. Fear short-circuits the power of God in the life of the believer. This is the reason God said “Do Not Fear”, 365 times in the whole Bible, one for a day.

Goliath was a real enemy and great threat to the Israelites, which King Saul and his well trained soldiers feared exceedingly, but it took a young shepherd boy who had more faith than fear to bring the giant down. If faith pleases God then God abhors fear because fear is a proclamation of the inability of God to make good His promises.

The time to make the switch is now for are we not to walk by faith and not by sensory perceptions? Let’s get in the word, talk about His promises with friends and loved ones more than Corona, share Christians materials with others more than we share news on Corona because we become what we feed on. Don’t feed your fears but feed your faith and you will bring down any Goliath that stands against you. Don’t be the mouth-piece of the enemy spreading fear and darkness all over the land but be a trumpet in Zion sounding and resounding the goodness of the Lord; His protection for those that reverence Him and bringing light and strength to the faint hearted.

If we could spread the Gospel of Jesus like we are spreading Corona news and statistics, the prayer of Jesus would have been answered “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. Shalom
