GIVE ME AND EVERY OTHER THING CAN WAIT

people of God, how much of Jesus do we really want

The bible says in Mark 8:36-38

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Do you know you will be tested and tried, if really and indeed we want to go all the way with Jesus.

 Mark 9:23, And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

This we cannot do on our own; our own strength, but with the help of the Holy Spirit.

My prayer for us this day, is that as these test comes, we will not fail in Jesus Name, Amen.

Jesus is all we need

Matthew 13:25, But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”

The  planting of the tares by the enemies has brought about all forms affliction and oppressions, suppression, satanic punishments, enslavery, yokes and bondages in some lives.

But do you know if there is a man to pray there is a God to deliver?

Obadiah 1:7 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

Jesus Christ is all we need. for in Him there is liberty, there is freedom,; Galatians 5:1 says Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage and

Romans 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

for the bible says in Colosians 2:14, Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Isa 49?24-26, Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?

 But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

belove, once you confess Jesus as your lord and saviour then your deliverance is sure, and to maintain your deliverance, you must maintain your salvation.

You must stay off sin , Isiah 59:1-2 says

Behold, the Lord‘s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

greater is He that is in you than all they put together, never give room for the devil in your life, never give room for sin.

Jesus is all you need.

Blessed be my God

 

 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

This is indeed the God that i serve.

 

 

AGAPE LOVE

The Love of J esus Christ is overwhelming.

The bible says in John 3:16-19

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

John 15:13 says greater love hath no man than this, that a man would lay down His life for his friend.

this is far beyond the love that we profess to one another, it far beyond our love relationship with our spouses, it is beyond the love relationship between us and our parent, children, friends, etc…

Jesus Christ died on the cross of calvary for you and i, just so that you and i can be save from the wrath to come. He went thru an humilating / painful death, the bible says in

Isa 53: 4-7  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

For no one else could do this, the sacrifice for sin offered by the priest could not do it, only the blood of Jesus Christ could, and has done it.

The bible tells us in Hebrew 10: 4- 7, 10

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

people of God once will have this in our heart, the urge to sin will disappear from our lives, we will be conscious of our way of living/ our lifestyle. we will want to do the things that are pleasing to God.

And this is exactly what God wants for us to do, it a place where God wants us to get to, to do those things that are pleasing to Him.

Because whether we like it or not, we will stand before him one day to give account of our lives.

FULLY PAID FOR!

 

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Jesus is that good shepherd who laid His life for us all, by dieing on the cross of calvary,

John 15:13, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

peeps, Jesus Christ didnt just lay His life, He was tortured, wounded, bruised, scorned, mocked, spat on, laughed at ……..  for our sins, no one else could lay their lives for us, not your wives, not your husbands, not even your parents , Jesus was the only one who cud do it, and had done it, He was made the sacrifice for our sin, He who knew no sin, just so that life eternal can be guaranteed you and that we might be saved from the wrought to come.

For the bible says in Hebrew 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Peeps do you know this same Jesus who laid down His life for you, do you genuinely know Him? do you have a personal relationship with Him?

Isaiah 53:3 says But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Praise God!

 

 

can satan cast out satan, mark 3:23-27

23And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

the bible says if a kingdom be divided against itself that kingdom can not stand.

I see today in our homes, families, churches, and various fellowships, peeople who claim to be believers or christians but are actually satanic agents, they re demon possessed. and are puting hinderanes, stumbling block, barriers in peoples way, stealing, killing and destroying destinies. God can not be mocked, whatever you sow you reap.

I ask myself again just as the bible had said in mark 3:23-27,  a kingdom can not be divided against itself, it is either you are in church to carry out your master assignment : (the devil)  or your evil agenda, which is to kill, steal and destroy, this are your mission according to john 10:10.

So why the pretence? is anything hidden under the sun? you might act all santimonious, disguise and pretend, know for sure that nothing is hidden under the sun,

The Lord sees all, the bible says his eyes move to and fro the earth, He revealeth deep and secret things to his elect. 2 chronicle 16:9

If you want to work for God get deliverance, renounce your evil associations, so you can be  free from every satanic bondage, you cannot be an instrument in the hands of the devil and also be meat for the Master use.

2 timothy 2:19-21, Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work

Some of you attend all weekly activity, all of your services are in vain, the bible says all witchcraft: sorcerers will have their part in the lake of fire. Revelation 21:8

The Lord is saying to you this day, repent and amend your ways, for I the Lord I search the heart and reins to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doing. Jeremiah 17:10.

Your wickedness is come up unto God and he says this monin to you,

seek the Lord while He can be found, call on Him while He is near, forsake your evil ways and return unto the Lord. for He will have mercy and abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7

 

 

 

 

GRATEFUL HEART

I am greatful for life, to be counted amongst the living, what about you? are you grateful for the gift of life? It is just by the mercies of God Almighty, so many wished to see this day but they are no more, you and i are alive this day. in spite of our enemies.  it has please the Lord to keep us alive. dont you think you should be grateful for that singular reason?

Or are you saying to yourselves why should i be grateful? when there are  issues surrounding me, or because of the challenges you are faced with? or that problem? The lord is saying to you this morning, do not feel discourage, forgotten, abandoned, nor dejected

Isaiah 49:15-16 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget, Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me

The Lord is saying to you this morning that He cares for you. He sees and He knows, but you see, if you are not in Jesus Christ, He becomes helpless in some matters of yours,

Isaiah 59:1-2, Behold, the Lord‘s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

People of God, sin is the major cause of the problem we are been faced with today, even in the world at large.

this is why He said abide in Me and I in you.

John 15:4-5, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

For without Jesus Christ we cannot do anything of our own. we must abide in Him, by drawing near to him so He can draw near unto us james 4:8.

We must surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. and as we do so our lives will never remain the same.
