Living in Christ, Christ Living in Us

Our Foot PrintsHe who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him… At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. (Joh_6:56 and Joh_14:20)
In our verses, we again see the extent of the intimate relationship that the new covenant of grace provides. An astounding intimacy is declared in these words: “abides in Me, and I in him.” We have not merely come near to Christ, nor has He simply drawn close to us. Rather, we live in Him, and He lives in us! We live by being in Christ (by being related to Him, by being united with Him, by drawing our spiritual life from Him). Moreover, He lives in us and desires to express His life through us.
This unique arrangement for spiritual intimacy is experienced by the one “who eats My flesh and drinks My blood.” Although the language sounds strange to the natural mind, the picture is common, that of eating and drinking to find life-giving nourishment. The unusual aspect is that the source of the nutrition is a person. Earlier in Jesus’ discourse, He had indicated what this process encompassed. “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” (Joh_6:35). Eating and drinking of Jesus’ flesh and blood involves simply coming to Him in faith. When we come to Jesus, we are counting upon who He was (His person, His flesh, the Son of God becoming a man). When we believe in Jesus, we are also relying upon what He did (His work, His blood poured out for us upon the cross). As we relate to Jesus in this manner, we are finding our spiritual sustenance in Him. Thus, we abide in Him and He in us.
Of course, the Holy Spirit would participate fully in this process. “At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” Jesus was leaving His disciples soon, to return to the Father. So, He comforted them: “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also” (Joh_14:18-19). On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was poured forth in fullness and power. Now, the Spirit would make the very life of Jesus available to all of His followers. As they trusted in Him, Christ would live in and through their lives.

Prayer
Dear Lord of life, help me to learn to live this way — me living in You, and You living in me. Help me to see it is as simple as eating and drinking. As I trust food and drink for my physical life, I want to trust in who You are and what You have done for my spiritual life, In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

One of the Testimonies That Will Remain Ever Remembered, Now Shared With you precious souls, beloved of the most high!

My Friends, You that fear the Lord and Join in the Praise with Angels as they Bow and Worship him as long as he has been, is and still will be – Revelations 4:11;

I have learnt it through and quite well, but; I haven’t arrived yet! Am still in this training which I do not know at all if it will come to an end. All my life I have seen the Hand of God guide me in every way. I have made a few mistakes that are very frustrating to the Lord but I have also done reconciliations with Lord and he has accepted me back to him.

Not by Works, It’s All His Grace

Our Lord Jesus Christ

It is the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ that will save us, of course he will also consider our works.

I have come to learn today that indeed according to his word, the Lord rewards us only by his grace and not by works. If it were by works, today I would have been blessed massively because am doing things that are right my eyes – judging that what I am doing is pleasant to the Lord, and later perhaps I would be punished when I do those disgraceful things in the eyes of the most high God. We all need to understand “Rom_11:6 and if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.; Eph_2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Our works 90% are all not righteous that at the end of the business day or normal activity day, if requested to give account of what good we have done on that day according to the teachings of our Lord Jesus, only 10% will be revealed to be true. Therefore, brethren; let us come together in faith and join the angels in giving thanks to our God as stated in Rev 11:17 saying: “Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was! We thank you that you have taken your great power and have begun to rule!

The Lord God almighty deserves the glory, and the praise and the honor as long as we live. Praise him at all times.

Christianity is Not a Life Style, It is the life of Jesus we have to live not to emulate, to do as he taught!

This started in the dreams, someone stood from afar and was commanding me to stop praising the Lord & worshiping his holy name else I would see trouble in my life. And to this person saying that to me, I said; how can I stop praising the giver of my life? I will not.

During the first week of January 2013, the Lord revealed Don Moen’s Song afresh to me, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIj6k3yYWo0 and when I heard it this time; it was as if the song was sent anew to speak to me, but I did not understand what the song meant until I faced a few challenges that almost turned my mind upside down. This was one of the toughest times I had ever experienced in my life. {The Wife & Daughter’s permits expired and to renew them, I was charged three times more than the normal charges}, I fought of course with the help of the Lord I managed to overcome the financial situation and went ahead, 12 days later; it started raining while I had gone into the reserve doing a few monthly duties, when I received a phone call from my office that my office and the entire lodge including my households are drowned in water. I live within the Lodge premises which is located right on the river banks of the Limpopo River in South Africa. Driving wasn’t easy to get back and rescue my household as the road was muddy though I was Driving TDI Land rover. I managed after about 45 minutes to get back to camp, when I arrived; it was quite surprising, it was as if someone had opened a fire fighters hose reel and placed it on the doors of the house and offices. At this point there was nothing we could do but escape to higher land. I had found my wife and kid have been rescued by one of my colleagues and taken to my office. I rushed to my house to pick a few important belongings I could, when I got to the house; the only way to get in was by swimming, the water level in the house was going through my waist. I managed to collect only a file case that contained mine and my Family’s IDs. That was all I could get, the rest was in water!

The place being a game reserve has lots of dangerous animals including venomous snakes which we feared at this time, if one sustains a bite, they will die without help. Thank God all the venomous snakes and dangerous predators where running for their lives too. The only place we had to take refuge to, is our staff complex which is on a hill where the water could not reach.

While I was swimming in my house my colleagues were pushing my car to higher ground which wasn’t easy, thank God they are my team so dedicated and strong. I pray for them always that God may bless them mightily. What was most amazing was that, it took us 45 minutes to fight against the strength of water while we swam to rescue employees who were on duty in a range of 50 meters. Some were capsizing in Water while others swam slowly in a water depth of 2.1 meters high. We were so lucky that even though it took us time, we managed to rescue everyone and isolated our abode which we could do nothing about. It took 18hrs for the water levels to go low. During this time, my household praised & thank God for his grace that saved every soul.

Properties I had worked for, for the past 15 years including academic qualifications and Study resources, disappeared in 18hrs. Today I remain empty with nothing to show that I have anymore.

The Miracle still remain today, no life was lost; all the material gain will take you nowhere as they can go anytime. Yet the Lord will never leave you by yourself. He will save you with your family and take care of you in any situation that may come. I am so thankful to God today because he alone promised to be with me, to see me through all this toil.

Afterwards, my feet though so big; when I entered into my house before cleaning it, could not be seen as I was fully covered in thick mud. We later killed 4 Deadly snakes black Mambas in my house during and after the cleaning – Mar 16:18 they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; …

I want you to know brethren that the Lord will be with you at all times whatever the world can bring, the Lord Jesus will stand with you. Here I am today, I still remain the same; when I go into the midst of people who know me not, no one will tell what I have been through; the flood I experienced is just a dot of all the things I have seen in a short life I have so far lived. But, even today; I still boldly strand to say, the Lord as old as he is; he is what he says he is. Psa 89:34  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Rev 3:7 … he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; Only Jesus Christ of Nazareth does what he promised.

1Co_12:6 and there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

Eph_4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

 

Last Word:

Heb_10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised 😉

NB* I have received lots of warnings that in this place
I am, I should stop worshiping the Lord. But, brethren; let me tell you. We can only receive command from the lord Jesus not those we are supposed to Command. God bless as you journey on and may he give you the grace to stand faithful to & in him. Love you all, for Christ. In Jesus Christ’s name. Amen!

 

 

Trial Of Your Faith

There is a popular adage that says, “When a child is trained with hard labor, he is well trained”.

“The trial of your faith.” – 1Pe_1:7

Faith untried may be true faith, but it is sure to be little faith, and it is likely to stay dwarfish so long as it is without trials. Faith never prospers so well as when all things are against her: tempests are her trainers, and lightning is her illuminators. When a calm reigns on the sea, spread the sails as you will, the ship moves not to its harbor; for on a slumbering ocean the keel sleeps too. Let the winds rush howling forth, and let the waters lift themselves, then, though the vessel may rock, and her deck may be washed with waves, and her mast may creak under the pressure of the full and swelling sail, it is then that she makes headway towards her desired haven. No flowers wear so lovely a blue as those which grow at the foot of the frozen glacier; no stars gleam so brightly as those which glisten in the polar sky; no water tastes so sweet as that which springs amid the desert sand; and no faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs in adversity. Tried faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness had you not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would never have known God’s strength had you not been supported amid the water-floods. Faith increases in solidity, assurance, and intensity, the more it is exercised with tribulation. Faith is precious, and its trial is precious too.

Let not this, however, discourage those who are young in faith. You will have trials enough without seeking them: the full part will be measured out to you in due season. Meanwhile, if you cannot yet claim the result of long experience, thank God for what grace you have; praise him for that degree of holy confidence whereunto you have attained: walk according to that rule, and you shall yet have more and more of the blessing of God, till your faith shall remove mountains and conquer impossibilities.

Prayer

Father we thank you, Jesus Christ we thank you, Holy Spirit we thank you that you have opened our minds to understand why we are tempted and the value of temptation, Lord Jesus give me the grace to continually see your light in all my tempted walks of life. Give me the grace to continually hold on to thy hand; But God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able … 1Co_10:13 (KJV); Dear Lord I thank you that you have me in your daily plan every day. Thank you Holy spirit for talking to me every time, Thank you Jesus Christ for answering my everyday prayers. I Cover myself and my household, with the blood of Jesus and the fire of the holy ghost. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Aside

Marriage; Motherhood

God is in Support of FamilyWhat a divine assignment. A mother is a role model to her children. She is the perfect picture the children look at for their first steps in life. You can tell by their speech when they play with friends on the streets; mostly, they will quote; “mummy said I can’t do that, mummy said she loves me, mummy bought me a panda! It’s all about mummy this, mummy that. This in the divine context implies that mummies are the role models for their children until a certain age at which they are let go for their own expedition to begin and learn from the worldly experiences after being shown the conjectural part of it by MOTHER.

Sometimes one at the age of 60 years is still caught saying my Mother taught me this. My Mother has been a good friend of mine; what do they mean? They intend to say that they came from a family; they were brought up by their own mother. Mothers are a source of life.

Transformed to Motherhood

Before the very concept of mother should come into being; God had and still has the same meaning from beginning of creation: Family. A mother is one who becomes known as one through the act family with a man who then is respectively called Husband. Family is God’s divine grace in the flesh as to increase his creation through human productivity. Humans are a grace from the Lord Jesus himself though it is clear today most people are lost due to the many things the world has brought before them to complicate their choices and follow unreal tracks of life. It is only through marriage that genuine motherhood is lived; a mother must always have a husband. When today’s instance is given, we have lots of the so-called single mothers! In the first place one did not come to motherhood without experiencing husband in one night or day. This act however has been abused to the love for lust. If one should know or be reminded; these things are intended for family – Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. This tells us that there is a proper way of becoming a mother. God is in support of marriage, he wants each one of us to have a husband/wife; Gen 2:24 – Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Lev 21:14 – note that in this scripture there are some restrictions under which marriage should legally occur. Therefore, since the age we are in is much damaged by the antichrist;  the grace of the Lord Jesus is enough for all to say, whatever uncleanliness there is among the restrictions mentioned that should be void of marriage; the blood of Jesus is still accessible by faith to cleanse all such as mentioned. He is faithful that promised.  He is forgiving. Just as his blood flowed from the cross that day, so does it to those who believe in him today. Take thoughtful meditation and do not think the Lord will reject you when you turn to him asking him to make you a wife/husband: Isa 1:18, Mic 6:2, Eph 1:6, Rom 5:20 – Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: [emphasis mine] it is not by works of righteousness that we have done, it is grace. The grace of the Lord Jesus – we have read this in the scripture.

Mother; if at all these conditions according to the word of the Lord are obeyed, there will be total comeback to the Lord and peace will once again reunite. When we have children in the way of the Lord, they are easy to train, to bring up because the Lord will be in support of such. Trust the Lord’s word; it surely comes to pass as he says.

Work and Family

True and I 100% agree that a woman a mother/wife as at this age must be well involved in the up bring of the family in view of the fact she must contribute to the family by means of work or financial responsibility. Look at it this way; is it not wise to take care of the children in the house until they are of age to have learnt from their mothers to stand alone? MAID/BABY SITTER: it is imperative today that almost each well to do house-hold has one in the house for the care of children not really of house work. Every mother/father has a way of thinking on how their children should be brought up – You know I am right when I say this! Now, here you go and get a maid/baby sitter – someone who has her own way of doing things, quite negative to your own ways/thought of child up-bring. She is here in this house to make a living by taking care of your children, teaching them things you do not know, if the kid has a problem with feeding, she may leave them alone to suffer that since she knows at the end of the month her salary will be paid – this is just an example. There is more to it than this. Think about it. Work can wait if seriously we must have responsible children in the future; I mean those who have husbands. I am speaking in the Lord’s way and not life’s way – I speak of living by faith and not by sight! Children are a blessing and therefore, should be natured with LOVE! The Love that you wish would have been given to you if your mother/father was there. Though we only realise that we were loved at old age.

Think about these things and then will you know how to embrace your family. The Value of family is of tremendous vitality. Come together and reason, especially you that still have an opportunity to make families – use this time to groom children that shall fear the Lord, it is a profitable thing, so rewarding on your own life when your children know the Lord and can pray for you, when they can trust in the God of Abraham. The Lord still has his plans for us, to give us expected ends. Psa 33:11 the counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. For the sake of we his children! Lam 3:26 it is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Let us not rush, the Lord has the plans for us, if we live according to his word, we shall finally land into the place of his designation upon us. Dear Jesus we thank you! Heb_3:14, Heb_10:35; 1Pe_1:13. Jesus Christ, you are my life Alleluia!

Prayer

Dear Lord, thou kind and loving father of Abraham’s seed, ancient of days, creator of heaven and earth and all that is in them, we thank thee, Jesus we thank thee, holy spirit we thank thee! Thou art holy. Let thy name be glorified above all names that claim existence. We pray that thou abide with us, we plead the blood of thy son Jesus Christ upon all those that are given to marriage, and that they may praise thy name forever; we pray that thou manifest thyne strength upon their weaknesses that their doing may be of thee. That they may fear thy name forever and know thee and the power of thy son’s resurrection, father we thank thee, for protecting these marriages and making them know that thou art pleased with them in Jesus’ Mighty name. Amen. Thank you Lord Jesus for freeing us from the Law of No Marriages!

Motherhood! God’s Intended Purpose

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.
