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 CHRIST THE DELIVERER

we see how the Lord delivered the children of isreal from the hand of all those that oppressed them.

In Judges 4, we see how the lord discomfited the king of canaan the captain of whose host was sisera, at the time when Deborah the prophetess judged Isreal.

Vs 14 And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this is the day in which the Lord hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the Lord gone out before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him.

Vs 15 And the Lord discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.

Vs 16 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; and there was not a man left.

Vs 21 Then Jael Heber’s wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

Vs 22 And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will shew thee the man whom thou seekest. And when he came into her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead, and the nail was in his temples.

Vs 23 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel.

Vs 24 And the hand of the children of Israel prospered, and prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan.

Also in 2 Chronicles 20

in the days of King Jehoshaphat king of Isreal ,we see how the children of Isreal cried unto the the Lord, and the Lord hearkened unto their cry, He laid an ambushment against the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and mount seir,  when they came against Jehoshaphat to battle, and how the lord assured them of victory.

VS 17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

Vs 22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

Vs 23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

Also in Exodus 14 The children of Isreal were also oppressed by pharoah king of Eygpt and the Lord God sent a delivever; Moses and how the enemies of isreal were swallowed up in the red sea

Vs 13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Vs 14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Vs 22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

Vs 23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

Vs 28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

Vs 29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

Vs 30 Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

That same God, is still the same today and forever, He wants to deliver you from every form of oppression today, be it opression from satanic bondage, ancenstral altars, household wickedness, satanic jailers and janitors, monitoring agents, demonic agents, satanic punishments, etc, if only you will be willing to cry out to Him, and turn away from sin and genuinely surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Victory shall be yours.

 

 

 

Blessed God

This is for someone out there, who might be feeling discouraged & weary, here is what the lord is saying to you this monin!

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. Jer 29:11

So

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will
Uphold you with the right hand of my rigtheousness. Isa 41:10

Hallelujah!!

WAIT !!!

WAIT!
As God promised a thing and it is yet to be fulfilled? Worry less
Numbers 23:19 says God is not a man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?

There is a waiting period that precedes the manifestation of great expectations.

For the gestation period of an elephant takes about 22 month( almost 2years), it will be premature for an elephant to give birth after 9month, whilst it is a thing of joy for a mother to give birth to her child after 9month.

We see that expectation for a great miracle warrants great patience.

According to Habakkuk 2:3 it says For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie : though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Therefore, be not discourage, hang in there, for God is Faithful.

Detached

Detached!
Re u sick? Ps 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions

Are u afflicted? Ps 107:17 says Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

Are u oppressed? Isa 54:17
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.

For He says in 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.

T/4 are u detached from your source(GOD); for if the branch be detached / cut off from it vine, it makes it impossible for the fluid of life that flows from the vine to reach the branch
Such a detached branch will not only find it impossible to bear fruits, it also stands the risk of dying off.
For as the fish of the sea can not be put on land to begin to swim, for they will gasp for breath and die, so also can the birds of the air not be put in the sea for they will surely suffocate and die.

This morning I admonish you to accept JESUS as your Lord & personal Saviour; connect yourself with the source of life & begin to bear fruit in abundance.

Stillness

For every storm, confusion & discouragement, i speak stillness into that situation in Jesus Name, Amen!

According to psalms 46:10-11, He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

psalms 121:1 “i will look unto the hills where my help comes from , my help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven & earth, he will not suffer your foot to be moved. 

 Jeremiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.

John 14:1a “Do not let your hearts be troubled.

Jeremiah 32:27 “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?

Jeremiah 32:17  “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
