THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE

“For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” – – Rom_8:2.

THE SIMPLEST child knows something of the law of gravitation. The word is from the Latin gravitas, which is the attraction of weight by weight. What gravitation is to matter, the down-pull of the flesh is to the spirit. There is not a single one of us, who is seeking to live the better life, that is not conscious of this down-pull. Indeed the laws of gravitation in the natural world have their counterpart in our inward experience. There is always a down-pull to the center of gravity, i.e. to self–what I like, what I choose, what I prefer! The fall of the soul toward the flesh–or self-life–becomes increasingly rapid, so that every time we yield it becomes easier to yield, and the velocity becomes headlong. The child of God would fall with velocity equal to that of the depraved sinner if it were not for the law of the Spirit of Life which is in Christ Jesus which makes him free from the law of sin and death.

Overcoming the Earth-pull. You may see it in the soaring of the lark, singing as it rises, until you think it will split its tiny throat with song. One of the delights of an ocean voyage is to watch the gulls, as regularly, evenly, and easily they keep level with the progress of the boat. The bird does not float in the air; it balances itself; it measures its wings against its weight, and defies the earth-pull. But if the means of flight are maimed, it drops helplessly on land or water. Alas for the bird, though it be an albatross, that happens to alight on water covered by the oil discharged from an oil-driven vessel. When once its wings have become glued to its body, by immersion in that oil-bath, there is nothing for it but a miserable end!

The Spirit works according to Law,–“the law of the Spirit of Life.” Do not grieve Him by any act of insincerity or hatred. If you are aware of the subsidence of His energy, go back till you have discovered where you dropped the thread of obedience to His gentle promptings. Pick it up by confession and restitution, and again you will become conscious of His mediation to you of a Law of Life that laughs at sin and death! Yours will be the wings of an eagle’s flight, the soaring of a lark, sunward, heavenward, Godward! But you must take time to be holy–in meditation, in prayer, and especially in the use of the Bible.

PRAYER

Help me, O Lord, to find my life according to Thy promise. I thank Thee that Thou hast implanted the germ of Thine own nature. Leave me not, neither forsake me in the upward climb. Teach me to change my strength and mount up with the wings of eagles. In Jesus’ name: AMEN.

Enoch’s Pleasing Walk With God

By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death, “and was not found because God had translated him”; for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him. (Heb_11:5-6)
It is the will of God that we learn to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord: “that you may have a walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him” (Col_1:10). Again, such godly living can only be developed by faith. Much helpful insight into such a life is provided in Enoch’s pleasing walk with God, by faith.
Enoch was one of our earliest forefathers. “Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah” (Gen_5:21). After the birth of Methuselah (who became, at 969 years, the oldest man ever on earth), Enoch began a three hundred year long journey of close fellowship with God. “After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years” (Gen_5:22). After three centuries of spiritual intimacy, Enoch was taken into heaven without experiencing death. “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him” (Gen_5:24). Enoch’s intimacy with God and his unique home going were related to a life of reliance upon the Lord. “By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death . . . for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Of course, what was so pleasing to God about Enoch’s walk was his trust in the Lord. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him.”
Enoch is a wonderful reminder of what life is all about — walking with God by faith throughout our days on earth, then walking right on into the presence of God in heaven someday. Many will eventually do this, like Enoch, without facing death. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1Th_4:16-17). Others may face death, but the key ingredient of fellowship on earth right on into heaven is the same. “I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory” (Psa_73:23-24).

Prayer
Dear God, creator of heaven and earth, I desire to please You by a life of faith here on earth. Help me to walk closely with You day by day throughout my pilgrimage here below. I eagerly anticipate the day that I will forever be with You in the fullness of Your glorious presence in heaven above, in Jesus’ name, Thank you Jesus. Amen.

The Beginning Of The End Has Hope

Show me dear Jesus my Own mistakes that I may correct them, those I cannot I pray thee correct them for me, search me and find what you did not plant inside of me and pluck it out In Jesus’ Name.

If I say the World – the Human race is likely to become instinct in the near future; I will be to some extent right if i say this! Truth is slowly being rulled out. If only we could turn to him while we still have the time, the better!  The Lord says, “(Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

“Lam 3:26  It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”

But, WE HUMANS, what have we done that the eye has seen the ear? We have committed abomination, outrage, a detestable thing in the eyes of the creator, do we think we can argue with his creation plan? Satan tried and he was thrown down to earth, he left that beautiful place called Heaven – the dwelling of the Most high! What do you think the Lord will do to us? The human race will not overthrow the plan of God, yet, it is indeed known that trying they shall try until the day the Lord lets Abraham’s seed rule the World!

Jer 33:25  Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Jer 33:26  Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.

The Lord Is Still Willing To reconcile with YOU & me today!

Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Act 10:43  To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Go to any living Church, a church that love God, and you will find him there! Read the Bible – It must be a holy Bible, the Man of God Prophet T. B. Joshua has said it more clearly “The Bible becomes Holy when before you read it, pray that God may be involved”. The word is …

Call upon the name of the Lord in truth and in spirit, then shall ye Live!

Prayer,

Father, I pray thee in Jesus’ name. Make me beautiful within, create a clean heart within me and renew the spirit within me and forgive my sins!

Remove every substance (Physical and Spiritual, intellectually or emotionally) that the enemy might have deposited inside of me, whatever it is that I might have eaten through dream, or from the table of the enemy, be removed in Jesus’ name. I break any covenant that I have with the enemy that I know and that I know not, whatever it is with my life that is not yours Lord Jesus, I break it! I stand in the blood of Jesus, and the fire of the Holy Ghost. I know the enemy does make his fake fire too, but I call the unquenchable, the iron smelting fire of the holy ghost to consume every demonic authority in my life, destiny, health, finances, matrimonial, Career, among my children in Jesus’ Name. Straighten me dear Jesus I pray. In Jesus’ name.

Thank you father, thank Jesus Christ for thy LOVE and presence in my life, thank you for answering my prayer and for releasing me and all that is to do with me and all that are connected to me.
