JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part V

Dear Lord, open the heart of men and women to Jesus Christ those that seek rest … In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.- John 6:63

JESUS WAITS FOR HIS BRIDE

Jesus said to the disciples the words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. They are eternal, ever revealing to the heart of man by the wonderful Teacher Holy Spirit the nature, acts and glory of God. Ever making the bride love God more and more. Ever preparing her for Him. Even in Heaven we learn of the great revelations of God. If you do not desire the revelation of Jesus in your life, your walk with Him is very dry and boring. When you walk without Him, you desire always teachers for yourself, yet unable to learn from God the Holy Spirit. But there are some of you WHO DO NOT BELIEVE.

WHY THE CROSS ? 

In the Body of Christ, there are many, who do not believe in carrying the cross, who do not speak of the Holy Blood and of the Lamb of God. To them it is a DUTY and want to put God in a BOX. Yet, He will not get into it. Thus, it is a dead meeting with no overflow of Joy, love and no willingness to suffer for Christ. No desire for the Lord in their midst. No desire for the Fire of God, no desire for fresh revelation of Jesus. They don’t want disturbance, they don’t want to awaken their dead – spirit, they don’t expect healing, preachers don’t want to speak on healing, miracles. Poor and needy are kept OUT.

Why is the heart living without compassion for those outside?

How sad, yet Jesus already knew from the beginning who were the people who did not believe and would betray Him. He knows the heart of man, He tests man, HE sees who is it who wants and desires God. Yet, He knows those that will walk away.

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart – 1 Sam 16:7 .

Even the Prophet Samuel was taken by the beauty of the son of Jesse, Eliab. Thought this is one whom the Lord has anointed! Yet, God gave him a new revelation that God does not see man as man does. He sees the heart. He sees what is in the heart of Man.

IN THE HEART OF MAN IS DEEP SECRETS

Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. – Matt 12:34

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. – Matt 12:35

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. – Matt 15:19/ and He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness – Mark 7:20-22.

But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you. – 1 Corin 14:24-25

TAKING THE CALL

Then Jesus said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father. From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more.

Why does man not want to follow the One who made him? He has come, prepared the way for us. We just have to believe. Yet, some will deny Him, some refuse to walk with Him, Do you understand ? these disciples walked with Jesus, they sat there engrossed in His teachings in the synagogue. Many today may have a believer label … the Lord is not with them. For they have refused His WORD. His WORD IS LIFE. They refuse instructions, they refuse to forgive, to leave what He asks, They make fun of workings of Holy Spirit, they laugh at the power of God, they laugh at the shakings that one experience under the anointing of God. They laugh at prophets, they laugh at the poor and needy, the messengers of God, His hearts grieve to see them so hardened in heart.

It GRIEVES GOD to see them in pride. But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly And run down with tears, Because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive. – Jere 13: 17

For Pride destroys our spiritual walk in Christ. Pride exists when we do not bow to God’s instructions to life, He saved us to follow Him in everything. When you allow disobedience in your life, you become slaves of satan. He sits on you and takes you to your destruction, whereas God waits until you surrender and leads you to life eternal making this journey on earth a beautiful time with Him and His people.

Then Jesus asked to the twelve , Jesus gets even more intimate now and asks those that He hand-picked to follow Him. Do you also want to go away? I wonder at the condition  of the heart of dear Jesus as He asked this question, do you also want to go away?  Do you also desire Me no more, do you also want to go away from Me?

THE CRY FROM PETER’S HEART 

LORD, YOU HAVE THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Thank God for the revelation that God gives to our heart to know whom we follow is God Almighty, the Shepherd of our soul. Yet after all this, Simon Peter cried to the Lord Jesus, Lord to whom shall we go? Where can we go – we have come to know that You carry life within you for You are Life and light of men. You have the words of eternal life. Lord our spirit longs for you.  We now  believe you and that You are Christ, the Saviour and the Son of the Living God. Yes, You are the One whom our souls longs for.

Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, for it was he who would betray Him, being one of the twelve.

Jesus foresees the betrayal and knows from the beginning who will ultimately walk away to death and destruction of body, soul and spirit said didn’t I Choose you twelve and one of you is a devil.  Was Judas not really enjoying the Word of God, the teachings and the sermons of God, the heart to love the poor and needy, the need to live in discomfort for some time.

GOD THE SON WARNS ABOUT THE BETRAYER 

The betrayal of Jesus was not by someone who was outside but by someone who was intimately with Jesus for the last 3 yrs of His earthly and ministerial life, He even knew the place of the Lord’s prayer…  He later repented but there was no place for repentance.

Do not allow today for satan to use your soul to fulfill his desires and satisfaction. Hell is full of rebellious people and satan is here to destroy your walk but HE WHO IS IN ME IS GREATER THAN he who is in the world. remember God the Holy Spirit is in you as you called on the Lord Jesus . Do not die in the wilderness and Come to Jesus and get cleansed as the Lord removes every uncleanness out of you.

Until you are broken the Living Water will not flow. Let every small and big sin be confessed, repent and forsake it. Do not pick what you like to hear in a sermon, teaching and leave out the correction, chastisement and ways to change.

The changes in you  others will see, Godly character is pleasing. Today when you eat of the Bread, enjoy and be blessed in deep communion, love and intimacy with Christ Jesus

LET GOD EMPTY YOU, CHANGE YOU, FILL YOU TO OVERFLOW IN HIM

            Dear Lord Holy Spirit , guide me through everyday life, that in everything I surrender to God. Let the peace of God rule my heart and I pray that I resist the devil with all his lies, snares and temptation. I yield where I have not yielded before, I pray feed me with the Word of God that I be more like the Lord Jesus. I give myself unreservedly to God. I Pray give me a heart of receiving chastisement and rebukes from the Lord and His servants whom He has chosen and placed in my life. I pray I obey God, break every doubt, fear and anxiety from my heart. Lead me in the path of righteousness, I grow every moment in Christ Jesus, that I am being transformed from Glory to Glory. Father God, I pray for forgiveness for every sin, and repent. Let the Love of Jesus again flood my heart, soul and mind. Let me think of Him every moment. To Jesus be all the Glory for ever and ever.

In Jesus name

Amen

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part IV

Lord Holy Spirit, let the revelation of Jesus as the bread of Life be unfolded into the hearts of Your children, In Jesus name Amen. 

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to youunless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.- John 6:53 

JESUS WHO WAS, WHO IS, AND WHO IS YET TO COME! THE RISEN LORD

JESUS: THE DIVINE WORD OF GOD

There was a division among His disciples and they quarrelled among themselves, How can this man give His flesh to eat? Yet Jesus said to them, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.

The Life of God is manifested in Jesus when we look unto Him and believe the work of the cross. For He was revealing to them the new order! That God spoke through the Laws, the prophets and Psalms. God became flesh for us and He condemned the sin in flesh as He laid down His life for us. Of Jesus it is written – Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good.  – Isaiah 7:14-15.

THE MESSIAH FORETOLD

In Him we stand and have our being. Without the Flesh, the Holy Word of God we are nothing. He so wants us to become a living Epistle in our hearts writing the songs of Heaven and cleansing and purifying us from the pollutions of this world.  When you hear the Word of God, do not harden your heart to the Lord your Maker and Creator, who loves you. You who believe in the Lord – do you reject feasting on His Flesh and drink the life from His Holy Blood. His flesh is Word of God and His Blood is the life! There is power in the Blood that cleanses every trace of sin, darkness and corruption. Satan is so scared that he will not open his mouth to speak the Blood. For it is the power that defeated him, it is the day when Jesus Blood was released on the face of the earth flowing from His body through the glorious suffering and Holy wounds on the cross that satan forever remains defeated.

What satan began in the garden of Eden by deception, lies and evil desires in the heart of man was broken on the cross by Jesus. How can you call yourself a Believer and not Praise the Lamb of God. IT is the Sacrifice of THE HOLY LAMB OD GOD that satisfies the wrath of God. Every enemy has to go as the Blood is sprinkled upon you. Your bondages are broken, your misery crushed as the Lion of Judah enters you ! His beloved. Arise Feast on the Word of God, not on the perishable things of this world.

He knows, He judges between the goats and sheep. DON’T LIE! For the spirit of lie is binding you to darkness. Let go of all pain and suffering and know there is no pain in the wilderness of God, the Word of God says – there garments did not wear out, they ate quails that fell from heaven~ ARISE O BEAUTIFUL ONE , your own vineyard you have not kept and thus blackened! Come, wash yourself and cleanse yourself in the Water of Life. Let the Spirit of God – The Holy Spirit guide and lead you. Not the voice of your desires, not the voice of traditions and dead doctrines of men, not the voice of satan. Let the Mighty and Gentle voice of God speak in your heart. Do not shut the door to The LORD.

Don’t fool yourself when you reject His commandments, He is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not live in perpetual backsliding. Jesus said I live because of the Father, For the Father and I are inseparable. Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else-believe Me for the sake of the works themselves – John 14:10.

JESUS KNOWS THE END OF MAN

He witnessed to the House of Israel that He is the One, The Messiah that they have been waiting for. The One written in ancient scrolls. Even the disciples that Jesus chose complained within themselves. He knows when you complain in your heart. For it is not in vain it is written – the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart – Heb 4:12

OFFENCE OF THE CROSS – SELF DENIAL

Does this offend you? Asks the Lord JESUS CHRIST. Does it offend you –

1)    To be told you are wrong when you are wrong 

2)    To receive correction from those whom you call elders of Church? 

3)    Does it offend your pride

4)    Does it make you complain

5)    Do you reject the gentle rebukes of Holy Spirit ? 

6)    Do you hate to be told the truth of the misery you are in ?

7)    Do you reject prophecy which deals with instructions 

8)    Does it offend you to carry the cross ? 

9)    Does it offend you to give your all to Jesus?

God the Son Jesus asked His disciples who were gathered around Him, who now stood in confusion and murmuring within themselves … They liked it until it was the cross, they liked the miracles, the fan following, the multitudes, the Romans curious looks… but now  the Lord is speaking such things that are driving away the crowd and the collection, the offerings ! He is speaking what no one is able to understand. What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? If the word of life while you are here on earth OFFENDS YOU, makes you feel REPULSIVE, you avoid it and think YOU CAN ESCAPE. What will you do when you see Jesus in the RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER IN POWER REIGNING AND RULING!

Now Jesus speaks the center of Bible teaching.  It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. Every word of God that you study, learn, hear and make notes of is to build the inner man. God does meet our natural needs , but at the end it is the spirit man that will be resurrected and your spirit man will last forever with God. So God wants to build the spirit man. Your body must be kept clean and in order, keeping away every evil spirit and sanctified to the Lord to dwell. The Word of God is life for the spirit man and it can feed on the Word of God alone, your inner man will reject every other thing you offer and you hunger and groan for the Word of God, not knowing this is what you seek, Jesus alone can satisfy the deepest cries and despairs coming from within. The flesh profits nothing, the flesh is to be crucified. 

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. – Gal 5:16-26

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE : Part III

Dearest Holy Spirit, open the hearts to  the Truth of God , In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead – John 6:48-49

MANNA AND WILDERNESS

Jesus now says, I know the manna that your fathers ate and are dead in the wilderness. Jesus wasn’t speaking of the death of natural life. Everyone who went through the wilderness with Moses died at some point in time. But He was speaking of those who ate the Manna which the Lord provided for them in the wilderness and met every need and want in their life. So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you. – Deut 8:3-5

WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOUR WILDERNESS? 

As the Lord leads us through the life as a Believer, He takes us through important lessons, when the tempter prowls around us to destroy. Yet in all this, the Lord is with us. Nothing happened to them in the REAL DESERTS where there were scorpions, poisonous serpents, sand storms, and inhabitants not seen for miles and miles away. For everything they depended on the Lord and He FAITHFULLY PROVIDED. He is always there in the wilderness of your life, not to make you a resident of the wilderness but to overcome the scorpions and serpents and teach and chasten you for when He strips you from the comfort of this life, He clothes you with the provision of Heaven that will not be torn down by lust or cares and pleasure of this life which will one day not be. He prepares you to acquire the promise He made to you that you are worthy of it.. that people may know that GOD TRULY IS WITH YOU.

Yet many died in the wilderness, some hated the wilderness, they hated coming out of Egypt, they hated the commandments of God spoken constantly through Moses, they complained and murmured. They thought foolishly they were better off as slaves of satan than walking through the desert. They didn’t want any chastening. They didn’t want any revelation. They just HATED IT. THEY COMPLAINED, COMPLAINED. They forgot the miracles, the mighty deliverance. THEY SOON FORGOT THE ACTS OF GOD. The Wrath of God was stirred many times, yet Moses always intervened.

Complaining against the plan of God

Then the Lord said to Moses: How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them?

I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they. And Moses said to the Lord: Then the Egyptians will hear it, for by Your might You brought these people up from among them, and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, Lord, are among these people; that You, Lord, are seen face to face and Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. Now if You kill these people as one man, then the nations which have heard of Your fame will speak, saying, Because the Lord was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.’ And now, I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken, saying, ‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’ Pardon the iniquity of this people, I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy, just as You have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.”Then the Lord said: “I have pardoned, according to your word; – Numbers 14:11-20

Yet the people rebel against the Holy God and died in the wilderness. When you are in wilderness only God can bring you out, not the lies of satan. Don’t run your own rules, it will fail! They complain again!

And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who complain against Me? I have heard the complaints which the children of Israel make against Me. Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the Lord, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you: The carcasses of you who have complained against Me shall fall in this wilderness, all of you who were numbered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above. Except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun, you shall by no means enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in. But your little ones, whom you said would be victims, I will bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised. But as for you, your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness. And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection. I the Lord have spoken this. I will surely do so to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.’”

Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land, those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the Lord. But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive, of the men who went to spy out the land. – Num 14: 26- 38

This is what Jesus was addressing in John 6: 49 – Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.  God is very gracious, yet they vexed Him constantly by speaking against the plan of God and grieving the Holy Spirit. In the wilderness God teaches patience, He builds faith, character and to trust in the Lord always. Wilderness is  your school to learn and unlearn, Jesus is full of grace and TRUTH. 

FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN

Now Jesus said the Bread that is from Heaven is My flesh! Oh FLESH??? Yeah the Lord’s flesh. Oh how could they EAT THAT? Yet God said – man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that came out of the mouth of God. A man is not able to live on his own, nor in the things of this world. One can have much possession still he is lacking. Still he and she is wretched and miserable. Yet they are not able to quieten the cries that come from their soul. Inside they are withering away.

Jesus said,, I AM BREAD FROM HEAVEN.EAT AND LIVE.

If outside is all that is there in a man then man would have been content by now. For we have learnt much and seen much, but God says, without Me, you have no life. You are only living, there is no life.  Jesus didn’t mean physically to eat Him, for yet the Son of God was not revealed to them. For Jesus is the Word of God. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. – John 1:1-4. In the beginning God the Word – Jesus was with God and the Word – Jesus was God…

Dear Father  in Heaven, I pray that you pour out a spirit of repentance on all that have waited on you yet with complaining for the promises You have given them. Forgive for every murmuring, anger, complaining, frustration, doubt, unbelief which has been spoken over Your Holy plan in their lives, release the Blood of Jesus Father, create in them a meek and humble heart to love and trust You always … For Your Word declares – THAT GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHALL LIE, let us look lovingly towards You always, All Glory and Honor to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  In Jesus name Amen.

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part II

Dear Lord Holy Spirit, feed our spirit with the bread of life… in Jesus name Amen. 

WALKING THROUGH BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst –  John 6:35

THE MANNA IN THE DESERT : A SIGN

The crowd said to Him, what sign will You perform and that we may see it and believe You?  What work will You do? Our Fathers ate the Manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from Heaven to eat.  What is it Jesus you will do that we must see and believe?

Jesus said to them, Moses wasn’t the one who gave the bread from Heaven, but My Father gives you true bread from Heaven. For the Bread of life is He who comes down from Heaven and gives life to the world.

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE

JESUS IS LIFE

Now their heart begins to want this bread; desires, seeks and yet does not understand. Jesus said to them I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. Oh what a glorious Truth, how awesome, the Word of life is the bread of life. Beautiful and lovely are your words Jesus, sealing my heart forever in You.  He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Jesus reveals in Me you do not hunger and thirst, here the quenching of your soul is satisfied. Here you rest in Him. You will not be a wanderer on the face of the earth, but rest in God forever. Here, you taste the Lord and His Life giving word, Word that are not created by man but Him who made you that when you hear you know the Lord. Yet there are some who believe in the Lord and still do not believe in the Lord as the Lord speaks. But the Ones whom the Father will give Me, will come to Me. Yeah their heart and soul will want Me and not just gifts from Me, They will believe who I say I AM. They will believe even when they are alone, even when persecution arises, they will believe in Me and I will by no means cast them out. These are the ones who wait on the Lord.  For I have come down from heaven and to do the will of God who sent Me. Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord GOD and His Spirit Have sent Me – Isa 48:16. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. – Col 1:16, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. – Col 1:20. He is the Living Hope, that He will raise us up at the last day!

THE MURMURING DISCIPLES

Complaining in the wilderness makes you WITHER AWAY

Even today, many claiming to follow Him, reject Him when the Truth is given, He is shut out of many hearts and they are content in eating the bread that perishes. They followed Him, they attended meetings, sang songs to the Lord, they said they will always seek Him, now the bread of life is rejected.

Now the murmuring increased among His followers, the crowd. He said – do not murmur within yourself! Oh it was not just through words, but in hearts … have you murmured against the Lord when He said something that didn’t digest well with you… you thought this is not from God, IT IS! No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God. Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father.

 

Yet the Son of God stands amidst this unbelieving multitudes and says, IT is the Work of God and not yours. Only Father God can draw your hearts to Mine. These are the ones who are taught by the Lord, not corrupted by vain doctrine of men, and not learning of God as a subject or philosophy of life. But they are TAUGHT BY GOD, God teaches them and everyone that hears from Father, the Spirit of Father reveals the Son and they come to Me.

Yet none have seen the Father God except He who is from God. You are of purer eyes than to behold evil, And cannot look on wickedness. Why do You look on those who deal treacherously-  Hab 1:13. Holy are the eyes of Maker, fire comes from His eyes, such purity that it cannot behold sin. Wickedness will be consumed instantly. Yeah, a veil lies in many hearts. Veiled from light, truth and living in darkness. Unwashed. God reveals to Man the Maker and Creator, Yet He works in our hearts when we think He doesn’t care about us, doesn’t see us, doesn’t know us. Do not assume about Him, His love is more real. Even though you doubt and know Him not, yet He stands by the door of your heart and gently knocks. From morning till night He waits as you buzz around the day and sleep in tiredness, want. God hears the tiredness of your life. 

BREAD OF LIFE REVEALED

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part I

Dearest Lord Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Truth, Let Your Word penetrate into my heart and reveal to me the Blessed Jesus  the Bread of life, the Son of God and Perfect Son of Man always, In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

I am the bread of life. – John 6:48

LOVE JESUS

Jesus went over the other side of Sea of Galilee and He saw great multitudes following Him, His fame had spread wide and crowds gathered because they saw the mighty miracles He did. Truly they were amazed by Him. He walked in a calm, peaceful way and there is love flowing from His face. He delighted to see people made whole. Then more people pressed in, of all age, young, old, married,  unmarried, sick , poor and needy.. curious… He went up a mountain to pray and there He sat down with His disciples. The chosen twelve disciples.

THE DISCUSSION ON BREAD

Jesus lifts up His eyes and sees a great multitude coming towards Him. He said to Philip Where shall we buy bread that these may eat? And the next verse says Jesus asked this Question to test Philip for He knew what He would do. God knew what He will do. Even before a need arises, God is ready with a solution. However, Jesus was teaching Philip to lean on Jesus and not to worry. He would reveal to them that He is the One that provides, the necessity is not bigger than the Provider. He is Our Provision.

Philip tells to Jesus even 200 worth of denarii isn’t enough to feed such a large crowd,  Jesus now hears Andrew say, there is a lad with five barley loves and  two small fish and what are they among so many? Here, Andrew not knowing what is in the heart and mind of Christ Jesus, begins to tell Him that what can we do with so little ? Yet, the Lord is not disturbed by the questions these little disciples were posing in front of Him. The people had gathered and were hungry and thirsty. They needed rest and Jesus said Make the people sit down. Isn’t it wonderful, He was so concerned about them, that He said make them to sit. He wanted them to rest, the Blessed rest.

The Multitudes sat down in the green pastures, Jesus took control. He looked at what Andrew thought was insignificant and gave thanks to Father and distributed them to the disciples and then the disciples to the multitudes. Jesus thanked the Father. “Thanked Him”. The multitudes ate and must have really relished the Bread and fish that was given to them. Tired and hungry, walking for miles to see the Lord and here, the Lord does not disappoint them.  God blessed them abundantly that they were left with 12 baskets of fragments! The Provision of Father is always sufficient, the Lord is my Shepherd and there is no lack. The people who had seen the sign and the miraculous multiplication of bread and fish were amazed, their minds could not comprehend what happened. Truly He is the Prophet who is to come into the world. Yes, only He could do it. Suddenly, the teachings in the synagogue must have come flashing before their eyes, as the scriptures was read : The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear – Deut 18:15.

Now Jesus perceived that they would make Him a King by force, He departed to the mountains alone… for the Lord didn’t come to acquire any earthly throne and earthly recognition; He looked unto Abba Father, for everything. He is the way, the Truth and the Life. He is the Lamb of God, the Son of God. As you walk in this life do not get entangled in the recognition from this world, serve Him faithfully.

As the disciples went out in the boat and Jesus had not yet come to them. How often, we leave where the Lord asks us to stay and are troubled by the events of the day. Wait on the Lord. Wait beloved, He will come and will come. Yes in the utter darkness, the waves rising high in the air and tossing the boat to and fro, their hearts melting within them –

Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

They see the works of the Lord,

And His wonders in the deep.

For He commands and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

They mount up to the heavens,

They go down again to the depths;

Their soul melts because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end.

Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He brings them out of their distresses. – Psalm 107: 23-28

Then the Lord speaks His voice yet calm – It is I be not afraid and they willingly received Him into the boat. Yes, you can hear His voice when you seek Him. He calls out to you – do not be afraid. It’s the same voice that calms you even when you do not hear it.

WHAT BREAD DO YOU SEEK?

The news spread wide and His name increased even more, that more boats from Tiberias came looking for Jesus. Eyes looking for Him , they looked  for Jesus, they saw neither Jesus and nor His disciples were there and got into the boats and came to Capernaum.  How they must have been eager going from place to place and they found HIM… oh what a rest! And they could not contain themselves their perplexity and blurted out – Rabbi, when did You come here? Jesus looking at the crowd addressed them and He said –

SEEK THE BREAD THAT DOES NOT PERISH

You seek me not because you saw the signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not labour for the food that perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him. They ask Him, what should we do? How can we get this everlasting life? How do we labour for it. Jesus knew the intention and the motive why they followed Him, for they desired the bread that perishes. You who call your self a Believer Why do you follow Him , do you follow Him for the food that perishes, do you seek Him for what perishes? We all have needs, we all have necessity to meet. But what is the purpose for which you come to the Lord ? for the bills to be paid, marriage to be repaired and restored, do you come for Him to give you a house, a car and a suitable bride or groom. Do you come to Him for something and not for Him. You that use Him always, seek Him only desiring SOMETHING from Him – Hear well what He said – Do not seek what Perishes, what is destroyed by moth. Do not store riches that will be destroyed one day, which is not everlasting, but the BREAD OF LIFE IS EVERLASTING LIFE.

People still desire the bread that perishes, they said how do we now seek for the everlasting life – what should we do? Man that need to be provided can he work out his own salvation? Yeah, we think it’s in some charity and some deed, we think we got to be good and HEAR YE ALL , what the Lord had to say  –

This is the WORK OF GOD, that you believe in Him whom He sent! How beautiful Jesus, wonderful, that we don’t have to do anything. How can we erase what we are not able to identify? When you don’t understand the root cause of your own misery and don’t see pass the pleasures of life and the cares of life. God says THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD, not man’s.

What happened in the Garden of Eden, I will bring forth deliverance, I will lead My people out, I am the Lord their God and you frail man, woman JUST BELIEVE, I will over throw the enemy from your life. I have overthrown the satan, the accuser, the Liar, the Thief, the Murderer, the Fallen one. I have overthrown the deceiver. Do not fret! Believe in the Son whom the Father has sent.  

To be contined…

Love

JESUS OR THE WORLD

Dearest Holy Spirit, Let Your Word be my word now, “Impart to me the Spirit of wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of Him that the eyes of my understanding being enlightened in the Hope His calling, In Jesus name Amen. 

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. – Matt 10:37-28

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven – Matt  10:33

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. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  – Luke 9: 23-24

What the Lord has said stays settled in Heaven and Earth .. No one can change it.. That’s the TRUTH..There are many in this present world, we don’t have to seek out the Anti-Christ for time to come, we have many and numerous of satan’s domain… to turn the sheep from following the True shepherd.. The hireling are many.. In many masks, numerous philosophies… and teachings, doctrines.

The leaven is already mixed in.. And the tares are growing with the wheat. The unwanted weeds have colored themselves into saints, and messengers of God.. The Lying spirit deceiving the world and the church.. Many are Like Alexander whom Paul the Apostle mentioned.. Leaving the flock and turning away from the Truth. (2 Tim 4:13-15)  Men don’t stop to exalt self and their thoughts. What does the camel know of being a mountain.. But it considers itself too BIG TO BOW until it comes under the mountain and see’s its  own self, shadow and frailty.

Many have issues with these verses quoted above – HATE.. Parents, siblings, children, friends and finally self and then only WORTHY of JESUS.. Is it worth all this.. (Luke 14:26) Why did Jesus want such a severe denial of self?? 

What is self.. Let’s being with self,… I, me, my self – idols of your life! 

      • I love people to adore me
      • I love to be complemented
      • I love people to say yes to me
      • I love to say I am egoist
      • I love not to accept my errors, mistakes
      • I find it too hard to say sorry to some one whom I have genuinely hurt, grieved
      • I love to watch fun stuffs even if it is not right at times
      • I don’t mind to lie to save myself from few embarrassing and difficult situations.
      • I LIE when it’s convenient
      • I love to put on a mask to my neighbor, to the world, to friends, to close friends, to hi-bye friends, to colleagues, to visitors and to self
      • I am faking so long that I have forgotten what the real me is all about
      • I am always complaining
      • Murmuring is my 2nd name
      • I love speaking about my pride and lust
      • I love gossiping, and back – biting
      • I don’t bother about God
      • I don’t think much about His opinion
      • I love to think of heaven and earth, hell as the way I see best
      • I don’t think of helping the poor, needy and animals
      • I am partial to whom I love
      • I am mean to my enemies
      • And so on…

If self has such a big list.. How much more the parents and children…after all they too are human.. Just like us.. Why does it make them any different because we are family. The human frailties that you carry.. So they do..Lord doesn’t mean to dislike our loved ones … but not to keep them and self in par with the Lord..

For no one can be compared to who He is.. He is GOD.. Creator and maker and Lawgiver of Righteousness and Holiness God Said I will never share My glory with another.. Because His Glory is spotless and Holy, It carries His presence… How can He reveal it to those that don’t honor Him and His Word.

DEATH TO SELF

We die daily to this world for each new day brings new earthly desires, we have a lot of desires that births in us and we want what is of the world such that we are accepted , we FIT IN! and we are ACCEPTED.  How would you feel when you know that the latest car is brought by your best friend and you want it too or something better.. That’s the self.. With all it’s desire that Lord said hate! Hate to feed the flesh, Hate to live to fit in the world, hate to exalt what is perishable.. Hate the enemy.. Hate .. Perfect hatred.. . It is a constructive hatred, which builds us spiritually and the carnal man is put to death. It isn’t the hate to hate  a stranger, fellow believer! for remember we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. ( Eph 6: 12-13) 

Only when the Flesh has died to its desire can the flesh be crucified on the cross ..  Only when Jesus said to Father God  not My will but Thine be done.. was the plan of salvation unfolded.

THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU O LORD

Even the Son of God had to say not My will Father, Yours be done..  Only then Jesus could enter the Glory which He left behind for us. We are being transformed into the Image of the Only begotten of the Lord..

How can two will exist?

Every one likes the glorious part of being Jesus, the power and the resurrection.. His death.. No one wants to be part of. But that’s where Holy Spirit is leading us every day.. To crucify the flesh .. That we can live in glory of His resurrection.. For the Spirit in us can do great things when we are an instrument in His Hand. Then this body the temple of the Living God, can mightily conquer the deeds of the enemy and its snares and net.. and let the victories  that Abraham and His descendants enjoyed and also the Apostles of Jesus Christ can be tasted by the Church of today..

THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST –

We are the Church. It’s not the building where we gather .. It’s us.. We are the channel through which God Almighty planned to operate.. He plans to give us the privilege to be the channel for His Spirit to flow. Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb of God..  Only the death of self can be the beginning of the Life of Christ in us.. If you are alive and your desires are alive in u..to satisfy the flesh and all its demands then you miss the plan of God.. The goal of God Almighty.. When we are the channel .. Even nations will be blessed and delivered.. Lost souls saved, unity and peace and mighty healings will begin and the devil will bow to Jesus . We can see these miracles only when the Church will rise.. Only when we EMBRACE the cross, the shame, denial, rejection, humiliation and total abandonment to receive the Truth in our beings.. To be the One who says Thus says the Lord.. And demon power will be broken..

Only to be His Voice in the desert.. That there will be rivers of Living Water everywhere.. To be the voice and to be the crown of Glory in Father’s hands.. We have yet to see the mighty things Jesus spoke about.. When will the church stop being in the world and arise to the true heir ship it belong to? …and reign for what it was created.. You are the Light of the World.. Come..  And deny self and the resurrection power awaits you.. In Jesus name Amen .

I WILL LOOSE MY LIFE WHEN I TRY TO SAVE IT.. BUT WHEN I LOOSE MY LIFE FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND FOR HIM, I AM SAVED.. I AM SAVED.. I AM FREE. I AM WHOLE, I AM CLEAN, I AM IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD, I HAVE ANGELS TO MINISTER TO ME…

HALLELUJAH..

LOOSE WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER, AND SEE WHAT ONE DROP OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CAN DO .. WHEN U SEE UR WILL CRUCIFIED! TO LIVE IN THE HOLY WILL OF GOD.. HALLELUJAH!

Love

Sugi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT EVER YOU DO

Dear Lord Holy Spirit, let Your Word guide and lead me in the eternal truth that Jesus Christ reigns forever… In Jesus name Amen.

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. – Col 3:15-17

WHEN U CHANGE FROM WITHIN … THE PEACE OF GOD OVERFLOWS THROUGH YOU

LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOU

God speaks to us every moment and many of us cannot hear His Voice  because so much noise has filled our hearts and mind. When every moment we desire Him to help us in the ways of this life, we need the Saviour Christ Jesus and He alone can help us know what we must do.

The peace of God is spoken so much and so little lived in. there are times when I have not been in peace and was ashamed and yet God doesn’t give up and wants us to learn from Him.

God desires us to have the peace of God rule in our hearts and it is not difficult. For we must cast our selves at His feet constantly. Do not think the enemy of your soul rests and has forsaken you, since the day you called on Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour, you have become his favorite target to push you down.  Knowing this, many anxieties, worries and tensions are not humanly and originated from satan’s domain. After being saved you still are having these anxiety pangs? It’s because this area has not been dealt with… what is not dealt with remains.. Thus, it is discovered in times when we are not Christ like and must be removed … we must not pity what God does not pity.. Self Pity is the worst crime ! Because it makes us feel like a lame man not able to rise. We magnify the wounds, the scars, the situation and circumstances, we then magnify our own misery than needed.  How many hours one has wasted after becoming a born again Believer, in brooding and weeping for things we were asked to conquer.

OVERCOME MOUNTAINS IN FAITH

Yet, we do not see our difficult situations  as  a means to Glorify God and for His Kingdom to come. What enemy has caused you to trip, fall and remain in  a place of spiritual lethargy, God wants to show that He is above every old scheme of satan. God calls him old serpent! Now God has a command for His chosen people, to let the peace of God rule you in your hearts. i.e., to allow the peace of God to rule you. God wants you to allow and permit Him to rule you.

What is ruling your heart and minds ? What is occupying you lately that you have withheld your Praise to God Most High. There must be something and that is ruling, Here beloved In Christ God wants His peace to rule you. His peace is not a feeling of mind, His Peace is Himself – Jesus Christ. He must rule your hearts, He must be the ROCK of your soul. He must be the captain of your life! He must be the Shepherd of your soul, He alone can rule you. Everything else will destroy you ultimately.

YOU ARE CALLED IN ONE BODY – God expounds that to which also you were called in one body and be thankful! Yes, you are called in one body. We are one body and Jesus Christ is our head! How often we are tearing apart the Body , yet the Body is us… and thus hurting and grieving self and Christ our Lord, For He laid down His life for us to live in His Resurrection power.  Many may be the fiery darts of the wicked one, I will trust in my Maker and Lord – I will trust in Him more than the giants that I face, I will trust in my heavenly Father to provide when it seems impossible … because whom I believe , Lives! He is Risen and watches over me…

LET CHRIST DWELL IN YOU

Lord says – Let the Word of Christ dwell in your hearts, create in your hearts room for His Word to dwell. Today it isn’t too late for you to change and make amendments. If your room is dirty , you will clean it, why not your soul. All you have to do is believe In His Word, for years, centuries…the prophets and the Children of Israel believed in the Word given to them, they trusted the Lord against all odds …  for God’s wisdom speaks to us to lean and trust in Him when times are difficult and thus we can encourage those who need encouragement, a word of Hope and LIFE. God expects His Elect to Teach and Admonish!!  Admonish means to warn, to put in mind, to caution and reprove gently, calling attention to, it also can be a mild rebuke and correction. We have this authority in Christ Jesus. What are you doing with the authority that Christ has given you. Do you know that Satan only possesses power that is feeble than the power of Christ and he has no authority over you. You belong to Christ Jesus, He has given all power and authority to you. In His name you can dismantle the invisible web of darkness that is trying to overtake you.

PRAISE IS BEAUTIFUL

WHAT EVER YOU DO  – SING SONGS OF PRAISE

God wants us to sing songs of praise and love to Him in grace! In your hearts to the Lord! How wonderful. God  wants us to sing with the congregation but more importantly in our hearts to Him … Praising truly.. Why? When you are on your own .. .do you love Him, to sing to Him… and adore Him for who He is to you…

Above all, our action speak louder.. So God says … What ever you do in word and deed , Give glory to God, Let not a deed that is disapproved by God be done and seek to justify it by twisting the context of the Word of God. Do all for Him – for when you begin to see that in everything you are serving Him, there will be joy and the heart of complaining, cribbing will be completely removed  . Yes, God will be magnified. Depend on Him when you do something and on His person. Do nothing without Him. Let this mind be far from you – to leave the blessed Holy Spirit counsel in  your acts.

In all this, the peace of God will rule you as you obey and surrender and Trust Him.

WHAT EVER YOU DO – DO TO EXALT THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS !

Peter did come out of the Boat, but sank when he saw a large wave come at his direction, fear gripped his heart and he forgot the sense of walking on the water with the Lord. How wonderful that moment must have been when Peter walked on water! yet fear distracted him. What ever you fear cast it at His feet. Replace fear with the Word of God in faith in whom you trust – Jesus Christ. Now, know He cares for you. He has displayed on the cross what He can do and did for you and how much more His love is enough for us…

LET HIS PEACE RULE YOU 

Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness – Psalm 143:10.

Father God, touch your sons and daughters now in Jesus name. open their hearts to your peace and your wisdom and let the Word of Christ dwell in their soul and spirits, lead them in the path of love and righteousness, to Jesus be all the Glory forever and ever. Amen. 

Love

Sugi

 

 

 

 

 

 

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART IV

Dear Holy Spirit, as we come to know what grieves Your precious heart and help us come to You with a repentant heart and seek the forgiveness of God the Father in Jesus, let us not vex and grieve You anymore.. In Jesus name Amen. 

And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. – Gen 6:6 

GOD LOVES YOU

Just after the Fall of man, we see how God’s heart is grieved to man’s sin and the Word of God declares God’s heart was grieved. He was sorry, but now He has reconciled man to Himself through Jesus and yet we grieve Him. He is our Father, Friend and God above all, He’s seeking us to live in a way He created us to be … to fulfill His will and walk in righteousness and not in the lust of the flesh, eye and pride of life. 

How God grieves when we sin against Him, He is speaking to His chosen people who have the Word and still continue to sin – 

GOD IS WEARIED  – But you have burdened Me with your sins, You have wearied Me with your iniquities. – Isa 43:24

You have wearied the LORD with your words; Yet you say, “In what way have wearied Him?” In that you say, “Everyone who does evil Is good in the sight of the LORD, And He delights in them,” Or, “Where is the God of justice?”- Mal 2:17

God will judge those who continue to reject His correction and blaspheme His name through immoral living. 

But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And He fought against them. – Isa 63:10

THE SIN OF GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE – 

23.  REJECTING GOD’S WILL – God has a plan and purpose and His thoughts are higher than ours. He has a mind infinitely wiser and greater than any human being that ever was. What we see from Solomon’s wisdom is a small and tiny portion of His wisdom. For God is Wisdom, Knowledge and understanding. He doesn’t get it from somewhere, He is Wisdom! We all have a plan chartered out by God which is more adventurous than you can imagine, there is the price to be paid, there is also sweetness in it! When He magnifies His servants its beautiful. God’s will is for His kingdom to come, to overthrow satanic influences. When He tells something, He knows your circumstances, He knows the place, condition and problems that you face, He knows everything. So don’t give excuses, Seek Him and His heart and mind to do it. To accept it, when you reject His will , you are walking in darkness, the pleasures and happiness is short-lived. For some it is total darkness, there is only pain and suffering, He is a very loving Father and cares for you, but as an obedient son or daughter receive His instruction that are life for you. You will hear His voice when you give up yours.For it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure – Phil 2: 13, “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you. “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. – Matt 25:11-13,

Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.  When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ 26 then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets – Luke 13:24-26

JESUS BRIDE IS WITHOUT SPOT, WRINKLE AND BLEMISH, HE IS COMING FOR SUCH A BRIDE WHOSE HEART SAYS YES TO GOD’S WILL.

24.  DO NOT QUENCH THE SPIRIT – Do not put off the voice of God every time you hear it, do not run away from God. DO NOT IGNORE GOD’S CORRECTION. God is everywhere. There is no place that He can’t see or far from Him. Do not quench the Spirit – 1 Thes 5: 19. 

These sins have been highlighted for you to forsake it. God doesn’t condemn us but wants us to realize what grieves His Spirit. His Spirit is gentle and yet Mighty! He is the Power of God. No power is greater than the power of Holy Spirit. God is here for a purpose and in due time , the Trumpet will sound and Holy Spirit will ascend. He is gathering the church to meet the Lord in Glory, Pray we all are prepared to meet the Lord in His Glory. For the day of the Lord Jesus is at hand, Only HE knows when. We are to watch and pray. Let not satan deceive you, let not the cares and riches of this world put you to sleep and you walk away.

To those that are backsliding, God is willing to take you back – repent and turn away from sin.

God is mercy and He is love. He is also Just Judge, let the Holy fear of God lead you in Holiness. The fear is not of bondage it is of liberty. You have rebelled and live in defeat and satan has lied to you that you have no chance, God has forsaken you. God will not forsake you – you come back to Him who ever you are. He will abundantly pardon. God will embrace.

REPENT TODAY AND TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SINS ! 

Seek today the presence of God in your life. Seek the Lord your Creator.

Why are you sad in heart? It’s because He Isn’t with you. You need Him.

Come Spirit of the Living God,
We give you all the Honor and Glory
We worship and Bow down to you
As you led the children of Israel out of bondage, out of wilderness into the Promised land
Lord be with us , the Church of Jesus

Prepare us to be saints
Prepare us to be ready

Teach us to live in Christ Jesus
To be satisfied in Jesus alone O Lord

Help us to hear Your voice when you speak

Make us wiser than the wolves around us,
Empower us to tread the serpent underfoot
Let the mouths of lions be stopped.

O Lord, Put this song in our heart  – I am willing , I am willing to carry the cross
To deny self!

Let our hearts receive the commandment of God
Let the bride put on Her choice clothing
Let us shine in Your vineyard
Let our sweat fall in the vineyard of the Lord
Let us labour and rejoice
Let us sing as we are faint and weak
Let us uphold the weak and needy
Let us cry out for mercy and justice for the oppressed

Come Holy Spirit,
Thou great Lord, the Holy Person of the Trinity
O God, Come upon us

Teach us not to neglect the gift of God
O Lord forgive us for grieving the church
O Lord forgive us for allowing satan to blaspheme the name of God because of our sins
O Lord Forgive

Teach us to live for Jesus , to honor and love Him
Come Jesus , come Jesus, Come Jesus

Come O Father in Heaven, Glorify Your name

We welcome Holy Spirit

Wash us today afresh in the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ

Let us enter in Boldness in the Holiest under the Blood of Jesus for the veil has been rent

Father we come running to you, 

Embrace us in Mercy.

Father in Heaven, Let us turn away from the sin of grieving God the Holy Spirit. I pray that we are built in Christ Jesus and do not weary You with our sins, that we bring the flesh under subjection and our spirit man be cheerfully submitted to God the Holy Spirit and walk in the light of God, I pray enlarge our hearts to run the course of Your commandments. Let the fire for the love of Jesus and Your Holiness burn our hearts always and forever. Create in us a humble heart and break deception of satan in Jesus name, To God be the Glory for ever. Amen. 

Love

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART III

Dear Holy Spirit, touch us in our hearts and melt every hardness of heart towards the voice of God and towards the will of God, In Jesus name amen.

GOD WEEPS OVER OUR SINS

We do not willingly grieve Holy Spirit, but yes many of our actions, thoughts and deeds grieve the Lord. A believer must know and change the ways that are not right in the sight of the living God. Holy Spirit is the mighty person of the Trinity and He is in us. Jesus could not bear the sight of dove sellers and made a whip and threw out every one who defiled His glorious temple. It was sin that angered the Gentle Son of God.  Now, our body is the temple of God and we are COMMANDED BY GOD to keep it holy. Our heart must be completely yielded to God alone, there cannot be idols in our hearts.

LET”S PUT OFF THE SINS THAT SO ENSNARES US – 

17. BEING GLOOMY – Without reason and for everything when you are gloomy, sad and grumpy – you do not honor God. Sometimes we are sad, but when Joy, happiness and laughter is in you – why are you sad? Why do you grieve Holy Spirit ? There may be thousand reasons to remain sad, but there are more than ten thousands reasons to be merry! You are merry because Jesus lives in you. Draw nigh to Him, ,He will fill you with Joy inexpressible! He is JOY, HAPPINESS. Be joyful not because you have money or other things you own and people around you. Jesus is above all. He is Joy. Bring smile to others, Be of Good cheer. Rejoice always – 1 Thes 5:16. Being Happy in God is a place of resting in Him. When you are down, remember His grace is sufficient for you. 

18. PRAYERLESSNESS – How often prayer is neglected because of business in this world. Every morning He waits for you to fellowship . You are not doing God a favor, but He favors you. He is the Delight of nations, He is the desire of all nations ( meaning people) He is the Alpha and Omega, HE is the beautiful Saviour, the angels surround Him with songs of praises, they stand in awe of Him. He has thousands of saints worshipping Him in Heaven. He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him. If you wonder why you are failing – it is because you don’t fellowship with Him. For fools say in their heart – why should we pray? But the children of God always seek Him. He loves to fellowship with you. He is your friend that hears every thing you say, you friend or your girl or boyfriend, spouse, and family – will miss out on your hearts cry, but not Him. He loves when you speak to Him, because He loves you. He will empower you in prayer to get through every day life and be a victor and live in righteousness , to glorify His name. pray without ceasing – 1 Thes 5:17 , Pray for others in need, pray for the lost and for your brethren, elders and nation. Call to God to have mercy, Pray for every thing that you know needs God to intervene. There are lot of causes, but it needs Him – Brethren, pray for us – I Thes 5:25

19. BEING UNFRUITFUL IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD – you are building your self everything that you need, family, friends, and career , fame and richness and reputation , for everything you ask people, pastors to pray for you. You are there in every miracle meeting ? God is rewarding you because He is faithful! What are you doing to build the kingdom of God ? Are you labouring in His vineyard for His gospel? Is someone receiving the comfort that He gave you or He sent someone to comfort when you were down? God doesn’t need our help, He is not dependent on you – don’t be mistaken. God honors us by partnering us with Him. To allow us to be called Joint heirs with Christ. Because We are His children, We do His will! God wants us to bring forth fruits of righteousness, love, long-suffering and kindness . Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God – Phil 1: 11 , Only let Your conduct be worthy of the Gospel – Phil 1:27

DENY YOUR SELF, TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME!

20. NOT WILLING TO SUFFER FOR CHRIST’S SAKE – Sometimes when we are rejected and go through fiery trials for Jesus name, God allows such trials to form us that we through suffering might be made whole as Jesus suffered, so must His disciples. It isn’t about inflicting pain on self, whipping self, or doing self – harm. It is understanding that when the Truth is spoken, those that dwell in darkness will rebel against you, will fight your words and put you to shame. God is with us and wants us to trust Him as He said to Paul the apostle – when you are weak, My Grace is sufficient for you. His grace strengthen us. Don’t be afraid, give your fears to Him and He will strengthen you, make you bold for the righteous are as bold as lions. For it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake. Phil 1: 29, Faith is built when it’s difficult to cross over, when it seems impossible and we look unto Him in faith believing for things unseen.

But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly And run down with tears, Because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive.- JERE 13:17

21. BEING PROUD, HAUGHTY –  God hates pride, Pride is the sin of heart where the heart is lifted above God’s desires and will. Pride will blind a person to grieve the Holy Spirit. Pride causes divorces, friendship is broken, pride will stiffen you, you do not receive correction because there is pride, you don’t have peace because you didn’t yield. Pride will isolate you, pride will bring you down suddenly. God looks from afar at the haughty. Pride is the deadliest sin because you don’t hear anyone’s voice when they speak with you. You hear you own voice which deceives you. You have blotted out God in pride, you mocked His prophets, His servants, His children. You hurt others and receive hurt. Pray today that your pride be broken by God, otherwise you will be broken and destroyed. In pride you reject God’s will, your prayers go unheard, you surround yourself with false prophets, teachers and guides for they satisfy your wicked desires, they say what your itching ears want to hear! You don’t humble your self to God, the Almighty will show who He is by humbling you. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Phil 2: 5-11

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – PART II

Dear Holy Spirit, pray many are touched and the sin of grieving the Holy Spirit is broken, In Jesus name Amen.

WHAT GRIEVES  THE HOLY SPIRIT – 

Holy Spirit is Spirit of God the Father and God the Son Jesus Christ, He reveals the hidden truth of God to His children, however what hinders the relationship is existence of sin, as much as we want to know Jesus, He is more than willing to reveal Him to us. When Jesus said those who follow Me, must deny themselves, take up the cross and Follow Me. Only those who abide in His Word, have deeper walk with God and God corrects us to mold us into the image of His Son Jesus Christ.  Indifference to sin existing in our members will not eliminate it, but will hinder and be a road block to our fellowship with God. Today is a day to repent and change and turn back to God. 

Cry out for His mercy, Help! 

 

8. UNFORGIVENESS – Unforgiveness is the reason for no growth in Christ Jesus. As long as unforgiveness is in your heart, there is unforgiveness of your sins in the Sight of God, God is just . The Lord’s prayer  simply states – forgive us our sins as we forgive those who are indebted to us. Healing is a process, let go today and see God heal every heart that is wounded and broken and thrashed by people. God loves you and don’t let unforgiveness grow. And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you – Eph 4: 32.

9.  FORNICATION – Don’t play with your body for it is the temple of the Living God, He is in you when you allow your mind, body to wander and commit deep sins against God. He is watching and what you sow of the flesh, will of the flesh reap corruption. God isn’t mocked!  God is Holy. He will help when you confess. Put away every sort of addictions that is perverse in nature. There is power in the blood of Jesus to cleanse every addiction and remove it’s power and satanic influence. Don’t enjoy sin and then seek forgiveness. Resist the devil, He will flee from you. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness , let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints – Eph 5: 3. your body is the temple of Living God, As the soul and spirit of man belongs to God, even your physical body. God has power over your body to build or destroy, continuous sins causes satan to control.  Jesus has purchased your body with HIS OWN BLOOD, and your BODY BELONGS TO HIM. 

10. FOOLISH AND FILTHY TALKS – you cannot have one foot in the world and one with God. It is two separate kingdoms. God’s kingdom is full of grace and truth and Holiness and the world is corruption. Not everything is bad, but there are things that are abominable in God’s sight. There are habits that are not fitting for saints. Like filthy and double meaning jokes, you may not say it – but are you listening and enjoying? Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks – Eph 5: 4. Do not mock, insult someone. Do not laugh at those who do not know the Truth of God. Do not put down people when you are in power, authority. Seek to be gentle and loving. Enjoy life in Christ Jesus in a way that is acceptable to God.

11.  FELLOWSHIP WITH DARKNESS – The Word is our guide, Holy Spirit enlightens where there is darkness. For the light shines in darkness. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them, for it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret – Eph 5: 11-12. Do not consent to evil , though it appears naïve and harmless, inside is the wicked scheme of satan to destroy you.

12. DO NOT SLEEP – Awaken your spirit man , and let the spirit man be subject to Holy Spirit. Do not let the flesh and its desires rule and reign you. Crucify what is fleshly. The hour is here, when the bride is preparing to meet the Lord. Don’t forget your true identity as you run each and every single day with your earthly responsibility, remember He who does not bear His cross is not worthy of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Its not about the symbol that you are wearing around your neck ! It’s living for Him and denying self and saying no to the lust of flesh, eyes and saying NO to pride. Therefore He says – Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light – Eph 5″ 14

13.  NOT KNOWING THE WILL OF GOD – Be wise, learn from Holy Spirit , spend time and know the purpose and will of God for yourself and work towards it. Let your desires be surrendered to know His perfect will for you. Live for Him, let Christ live in you. Do not get your options and ask God to select one and declare this is the will of God, God can select something OUT OF YOUR OPTIONS! What you see, God doesn’t see like that! For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. – Isa 55: 8-9There fore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is, and do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit. – Eph 5:17-18. 

14.  DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN – Do not be divided, stand united in Christ Jesus, don’t just fellowship with those who are of same church, be willing to reach out to those to whom God leads you, break all barriers of divisions. Do not put down your own brethren, do not be hostile, Do not point out faults, but be loving! Speaking to one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs , singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord – Eph 5: 19

15.  UNTHANKFUL – Did you thank God truly from your heart today? Did you thank God for being alive? For salvation, for every good thing you own and have. We are blessed because of not things and people around us , it is surely is a blessing from God, the greatest blessing from God is to be under His grace and receive His forgiveness, to know that with open hands He wants to welcome us when we return home. Do you thank Him for all the prayers He answers? He protects you when you walk , sleep and keeps the fiery darts away from you. Don’t see what you don’t have, you will accomplish them in Christ Jesus., but look at Him whom you have and is able to meet all your needs. Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ – Eph 5: 20 / in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. – 1 Thes 5:18

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

16. DO NOT DESPISE PROPHECIES  – Seek the Lord when a prophecy is uttered to you, God will not always use the prophet you know, He can bring His prophets from the ends of the earth.  Don’t reject and despise i.e, hate,abhor a prophecy because you don’t agree with. Seek Holy Spirit, for the prophet speaks or sings under the inspiration of God, it is the breath of God flowing through that person. It is the voice of God for you, do not let the wrath of God come on you by rejecting a true prophet of God. Turn to Holy Spirit and ask Him to know whether this prophecy is from God. Do not despise prophecies ,  Test all things; hold fast what is good – 1 Thes 5:20-21

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – Part I

Dearest Holy Spirit, as we walk in Christ Jesus, We remember of Your beautiful presence in us and that U are grieving because of many sins that we commit, let us look to God in mercy and seek forgiveness for grieving Your precious heart. In Jesus name Amen.

Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter;  but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”—  because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.” – Mark 3:28-30

Once we begin the beautiful walk with Lord Jesus to guide, mentor and mould us, Lord sent His Spirit – the beautiful Third Person of Trinity to dwell in us, after the Resurrection Jesus breathed the Spirit in the disciples. Today again Jesus is the One who breathes His Spirit in us that we may be directed  in the right way.  But, Jesus prayed the prayer that He won’t leave us as Orphans but would send a Helper to help us and prayed to God the Father on our behalf and the Lord Father in His great mercy allowed the Holy Spirit to dwell in our midst.

Holy Spirit is the One who makes the Word of God alive for us, He teaches and exhorts. He edifies and comforts. He comes to those hungry and thirsty for Truth, Holy Spirit convicts and corrects. He came to reveal JESUS CHRIST, to Glorify the Son of the Living God.

But, we believers often have grieved Him –

We grieve Him when we do not do the things He nudges in our heart to do and much more. Let’s see through the Bible how the precious Holy Spirit can be grieved and let us forsake the sin of grieving Him. For continuous grieving can turn into Blasphemy. When Holy Spirit came – we all know He came, because He comes like a rushing mighty wind and fills us and we know He is in us… we are new creation. The Word is alive, everything is new now, however when He leaves – it’s so quiet we don’t even know He left. I pray that Father in Heaven will melt each and every heart as they read for His name sake. 

WHAT GRIEVES THE HOLY SPIRIT –

1. LYING – Do not lie when it’s difficult to speak the Truth, do not deceive your self – by ignoring the Truth. Therefore, putting away lying, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. – Eph 4: 25 NKJV. God expects us to speak the truth.For any form of lying, however light it may seem when you utter it – is from enemy. The source is satan. Lying is darkness, and God has no share in it, so we shouldn’t . Learn to be honest. God exhorts us by commanding us to put away LYING. Do not lie to anyone. Treat your neighbour as yourself. If you do not like to be cheated neither does the other one! So, apply what you are expecting from others. 

2. WRATH OF FLESH – due to what ever reason , a quarrel, argument has occurred – pray and seek forgiveness from God for self and forgive those that have grieved you. Be angry and do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your wrath – Eph 4:26 NKJV, don’t wait for the person to forgive, when you come in prayer – forgive that person and let God be in control. Let God be exalted. Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath – meaning don’t sleep in anger, don’t let the matter be. Put it off! You release yourself from hatred and anguish of heart before the day ends. God even doesn’t approve of cold wars! Humble and forgive. Speak out the matter openly and do not have secret feeling! Speak the hurt, pain caused. 

3. DO NOT INVITE THE DEVIL – satan has a lot of ways to entice and tempt us, but we have a greater One in us than he that is in the world. Look unto the Lord and not to satan. –Do not give place to the devil – Eph 4:27. A habit that appears harmless and which you know isn’t the will of God later turns out to be a snare. Check what are you doing that grieves Him. Do not rush through the confession of sins, take time and confess one by one and apply the Blood of Jesus against every sin committed and ask the Lord to release His Blood and strengthen you through His Good Spirit to overcome the sin. Rebuke the habit, renounce it in Jesus name. 

4. DON’T STEAL – God saved the thief on the cross, who asked Him to remember him when the Lord would enter the paradise. where ever you are, Seek forgiveness and you will be touched by Him. Be not a stealer of joy, happiness, let that habit die ! Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labour – Eph 4:28, 

5. LET NO CORRUPT WORD COME OUT – the words that comes out either brings death or life. The choice is ours, how do you speak to someone unpopular, when you are not in church or with church elders and members. How do you speak to family, spouse, children, strangers, friends, poor and needy. It is in these moments that we are really tested. When NOBODY IS WATCHING! . Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. – Eph 4: 29, the psalmist says about Jesus – grace is poured upon your lips – Psalm 45:2.

6. DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – when we do what He doesn’t want us to do, He is grieved. He is grieved when we don’t obey His voice, when we don’t listen to Him. When we neglect Him, neglect reading the Word, neglect prayer and don’t fellowship. Grieving is when He weeps over our sins, when we reject a man or woman of God and mock His servants. Don’t joke about servants of God. He grieves when we resist Him. He grieves when we enjoy sin and the pleasures of this world above the call of God. He grieves when we ignore GOD. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption – Eph 4:30

7. HOLDING ON TO ANGER, HURT AND PAIN – God is our comforter and Healer. It is the work of God to heal us of every wound of past and fresh. The walk in Christ Jesus is not one where it’s a rosy road ahead , like tales from story books that we grow up with imagining and full of fantasy. God said the path to life is narrow and few strive to enter in. Many times people and church may not understand you, there will be false accusations at you and rumors or things that you haven’t done – you have been blamed for. The person you trust walks away, betrayal, etc. – thus our heart is hurt and we have wounds and we create a invisible wall between God and us and do not allow God to heal and help us to come out of darkness.

You read the Bible , you pray, you sing praises and you help the poor, needy, you are active member of church – still you are not whole. Still there is no joy, happiness, no answers, no wisdom and understanding. Why? Because you are not honest to God about yourself. You are not allowing Him to touch you where He wants to. Until then – you are on your own – Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, calmor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice – Eph 4:31. God want us to be like Jesus and who said it was easy to be like Jesus. Everyday He was persecuted and the nearer He came to crucifixtion = more snares were laid, let all your pain be released at the feet of God, Jesus died on the cross to set you free! Be free from emotional bondages

GRACE OF GOD

Dear Holy Spirit, Teach us to walk in the grace of God which is revealed in Jesus each and every day, In Jesus name Amen.

Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. – Col 4:6 KJV

GRACE IS CHEERFULNESS AND BLISS IN GOD

God says our speech must be with grace. How do we speak with grace when we are not operating under grace. When thousands of thoughts are disturbing us, God has equipped us and redeemed us that powers of darkness does not influence us, satan can use boredom, and desires to trap us into not giving thanks to God for the things He has given us. He has not left us as orphans but given us His Spirit that we can walk as He walks. In Love, mercy, grace and humility.  Enjoying this life without being entangled with the lusts of this world. 

God loves to see us smile and enjoy the benefits of His salvation. Heaven smiles, is full of happy people.

God Himself is Happy and He desires that we are Happy. 

When our speech is with grace, we are a comfort to the weak, needy and poor.  Let YOUR LIGHT SHINE! 

The original Greek translation of this word is CHARIS and Pronounce as KHAR’-ECE which means divine influence upon the heart of man. Grace in our speech cannot be brought out by human effort, that will be false humility which falls away in times of trials so quickly. Grace is the divine influence of God in our mannerism and acts. Also Grace is benefits, favour of God, gift. It is originated from CHAIRO – be glad and rejoice, to be cheerful, calmly happy or well off.

Because of the divine influence of God in our hearts – we are blessed with

 1. Cheerfulness

 2. We are glad

 3. Rejoice in God

 4. Happy –

 5. Calm

 6. We receive divine favor and benefits from God

 7. Grace is a gift of God

HE TOUCHED ME , AND I AM HAPPY

Wow this is amazing ! isn’t it .. that we must always be in a state of bliss .. how often we are not and take for granted the gift .. the grace of God lightly. 

I Hope today you will walk in His grace, that there will be lightness in your heart despite the circumstances. 

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace – Psalm 29: 11

God bless and strengthen you

PSALM 121

Dearest Holy Spirit, Reveal Your Word to me in the name of risen Lord Jesus. amen

I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth – Psalm 121:1-2 

How many times calamity or distress has come upon a person and we all think of reaching out to the nearest and closest person to help us out and didn’t find any help!

But God wants us to reach out to Him as the Psalmist lifts up his eyes and looks to Him who made Heaven and Earth. He reached out to God, He reached out to the most influential Person. A heart that really trusts God , will look to Him first.

TRUST HIM AND DON'T TRUST YOUR DOUBTS

Do not worry and be not dismayed! God is very close to you where ever you are. As you trust Him, He provides help. He even make sure the path that you are walking into is covered, that though you walk either in weakness or strength that He will not allow your foot to be moved. He will not allow the perils to overtake you, He is the same God that led the Israelite by night by a pillar of fire.

GOD MAKES THE CROOKED PATH STRAIGHT

He is not a God that sleeps, if you ever think that! it’s a LIE.  He is awake and watching over you, He keeps you alert and active.

He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep. – Psalm 121:3-4

He keeps you in perfect peace, He watches and guards over you. He protects you from the perils that fall along the way in life. He knows every wicked scheme of satan and He is way ahead of His scheme. In verse 6. To know He cares for us is refreshing to the soul. GOD CARES FOR OUR WELL – BEING, HEALTH, HAPPINESS OF SOUL AND SPIRIT.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night. – Psalm 121:5-6

promises of God are YES N AMEN in Christ Jesus

Above all, God preserves you. You who trust God, who call on the name of Jesus. Remember – though many trials have come upon your soul and you have been wearied at times by it, He will preserve you from all evil. Preserve means to hedge you. To keep you under the center of His protective eyes. He watches over you. Evil will not overtake you. He shall preserve your soul. To know He knows every anxiety and comes to deliver you from all of it! He doesn’t want you to worry and act worried for it brings forth nothing.  All you have to do is lift up the name of God in that circumstance.

When you GO in the world and do the works of God and are sent by Him, He preserves you. He knows that you go to places where satan’s throne is, at times you are scared. even though in obedience when you do what you are meant to do God is in control, God preserves your every step. He marks the path, releases His angelic hosts to take charge. He Himself is with you.

God is not with you just for now! but for eternity. Eternity to be spent in His presence! How Glorious.

HE IS MY ROCK, FORTRESS OF REFUGE

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore. – Psalm 7: 8

Where ever you are, LIFT UP YOUR EYES TO THE CREATOR GOD. LIFT UP YOUR NEEDS, CIRCUMSTANCES, SITUATIONS TO HIM, LIFT HIM UP ..FOR HE IS ABOVE ALL, EVERY GIANT IS SMALLER THAN A SPECK TO HIM. HE CAN CRUSH THE SATANIC FORCES THAT BIND YOU AND BRING PEACE AND COMFORT TO YOUR SOUL. KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND EVERY SECOND HE IS WITH YOU AND WATCHES AND GUARDS YOU. ENEMY CANNOT BREAK IN.

SEEK HIM WITH A HUMBLE HEART

God bless you and love you always

Love

PSALM 18 – PART III

Dear Holy Spirit, Let Your Word arise and let us sing to Jesus in psalm n hymns always. In Jesus name Amen. 

WALKING AS A WARRIOR & WINNING BATTLES IN CHRIST JESUS

MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU!

He declares to God, with God all things are possible. Satan devices every scheme and lets it out as planned, David had to fight a troop, a troop of people led by evil spirits, the situation was so impossible that it seemed like a wall before him, but with the arm of God holding him, he leaped, like it was a hurdle! He learnt the art of good fight of faith. He learnt to use God’s given instruments – His Will to fight and win the battle. In the tents of enemy were pain and cry, but no help for them!

  • For by Thee, I have run through a troop,
  • By My God, I Leaped over a wall
  • He teaches my hands to war – so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms
  • Enemy cried, but there was none to save them
  • Even unto the LORD they cried, but He answered them not

TEACHING GOD

HOLY SPIRIT MY TEACHER

God is a leader, He knows everything and we must accept we don’t know everything. We don’t know what lies ahead for tomorrow. But He knows, So let Him teach you, to be a saint, to be a child of God, to represent that you belong to His family by following Him, not placing rules on Him. He is the Helper and Provider, Let God in .. and seek Him and surrender. David says when God taught him, though he was unsure, his feet did not slip.. i.e., he didn’t fall nor was ashamed.

  • Thou has also given me the shield of Thy salvation
  • Thy right hand holds me up
  • Thy gentleness has made me great
  • Thou has enlarged my steps under me
  • That my feet did not slip

VICTORIES OVER ENEMY

I REJOICE IN THE WORK OF THE LORD

This is where we boast, because the enemy is finally driven out of your life! His bow and plans, snares and all attacks over your life is completely destroyed. This is where we boast in the Cross of the Lord Jesus, that as we put ourselves in His hands, trusting Him that as we die in flesh, His resurrection power will flow into the spirit and soul and empowering the flesh to act as the spirit leads, hallelujah! The battle is won when the enemy is a slave, is cast out! Completely. God intends to cast out every problem… God is Victor. Don’t give up in between, the battle will be fierce, you might face the heat of the battle, where sometimes you are tired fighting, fighting … and you wanna rest. You cannot rest with the enemies round about you. There are many troops around you, lift up and cry to God, He will help and deliver. Don’t turn back, don’t ignore the threats… Listen to God and ask Him for guidance.

  • I have pursued mine enemies
  • I have overtaken them
  • Neither did I turn again till they were consumed
  • I have wounded them that they were not able to rise
  • They are fallen under my feet
  • Then, did I beat them small as the dust before the wind
  • I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets
  • God delivered me from the violent man

God delivered him from the striving, the fights with the people. People who rebelled against him… God delivered him.

VICTORY OVER PEOPLE WHO REPROACHED HIM

  • God has delivered me from the strivings of the people
  • Thou has made me the head of the heathen
  • God lifts me up above those who rise up against me

GLORY IN THE SIGHT OF ALL PEOPLE

GOD WILL MAGNIFY

Blessings that you didn’t expect, comes your way.. for God has good things stored for those who love Him. 

  • A people whom I have not known shall serve me
  • As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me
  • The strangers shall submit themselves unto me

PRAISES TO GOD

Burst forth in praise, for all the work God has done and bask in the Glorious present and prosperous future, which He has for you. Praise Him in humility and joy in the Spirit, Praise Him for the Lord has rested, taken His Seat and sat down!

  • The Lord Lives
  • Blessed be my Rock
  • Let the God of my salvation be exalted
  • It is God that avenges me and subdues the people under me

Praise and Thank Him always, in the high and the Lows, especially when He has helped you… When He took all your pain away. Time and years spent with Him is not waste, but is like a diamond under process, Gold in the hot furnace until your Gold shines, He lets enemy think he can kill you, but when you pray demons tremble, because he knows who is gonna show forth, the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY , Ruler of Heaven and Earth.. Pray in peace, in failures, in darkness, in Joy… Prayer suits a saint!

THANKS TO GOD

  • Therefore, I will give thanks unto Thee
  • O LORD, among the heathens
  • Sing praises unto Thy name
Blessed be the name of the LORD forever! Praises, Honor, Glory to His awesome name. 

Love 
Sugi 

 

PSALM 18 – PART II

Dear Holy Spirit, Let Your thoughts flow afresh, In Jesus name Amen. 

God now helps the believer, His very presence moved the mountains that stood … the earth and all the powers of air bowed to God. The psalmist confesses that the enemy is too strong for me but not for the Lord, for the Lord delivered him from all those troubles. God scattered the enemies by His mighty Arm.

GOD’S HELP TO THE BELIEVER

  1. He sent from above, he took me
  2. He drew me out of many waters
  3. He delivered me from the strong enemy
  4. From them which hated me – for they were too strong for me
  5. God brought me forth also into a large place
  6. He delivered me – because He delighted in me.
  7. God will light my candle, meaning man’s spirit
  8. The LORD God will enlighten my darkness
  9. It is God who strengthens me with strength
  10. And makes my way perfect
  11. God makes my feet like hinds feet
  12. He sets me upon my high places
  13. God has girded me with strength unto the battle
  14. Thou has also given me the neck of mine enemies
  15. That I might destroy them that hate me
  16. God delivers me from my enemies
  17. Great deliverance gives he to His king

BELIEVER’S ENCOUNTER WITH ENEMY AND GOD’S INTERVENTION

  1. They prevented me in the day of my calamity but the LORD was my stay

God not only delivers, God honours and rewards him for his righteousness. The moment and phase that he was in, was unbearable and too difficult but he did not lose heart. He didn’t forsake God’s law. As a believer in Christ, what God commands us to do – when all is fine, there is temptation, when everything is in a mess – you don’t want to do it. In that you are rebelling. You don’t want to do it why? Because you are weak, you have lost your vision and your hope. You feel down and left out by God. You think He doesn’t care. But He does, for the reward is for those who endure, trust and believe. Those who went-back didn’t come out nor received His Favour. There is a reward, a prize and a blessing.. that we need to claim, these are the promises that God promised when you read the Word, these are yours for taking, how can you go back when He has the palace for you, the Title of a KING for you, when He is gonna robe you in Purple, in Love and Honour and Grace and Abundant Mercy. 

GOD’S REWARD TO BELIEVER FOR HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

  1. The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness
  2. According to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me
  3. For I have kept the ways of the LORD
  4. I have not wickedly departed from my God
  5. For all His judgements were before me
  6. I did not put away his statues from me
  7. I was also upright before Him
  8. I kept myself from mine iniquity
  9. Therefore, the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness
  10. According to the cleanness of my hands in His eyesight

God’s character is revealed, He is a merciful God to those who impart mercy to others, who are not selfish. Who are upright in their heart and deeds – God will show His righteousness by blessing you…

GOD’S WAYS

  1. With the merciful God will be merciful
  2. With an upright man thou will show Thyself upright
  3. With the pure Thou will show yourself pure
  4. With the froward (devious) thou will show Thyself froward (shrewd)
  5. His Ways are perfect
  6. The Word of God is tried

GOD’S HEART

GOD IS LOVE

 God’s nature is to save, especially those who cannot save     themselves. Who have tried each and every known & unknown trick and still failed. They went everywhere and nothing good happened. Yes, they went to all sorts of people, did all kind of things and theories. Nothing is happening, the soul is still afflicted …still bears the pain and is down and heavy, unable to rest. There is mental torment and oppression, insults and captivity, persecution. To such, God is your help, rescuer and Hero ! He is here to help and love and give always and forever.

  • Thou will save the afflicted people
  • But will bring down high looks
  • He’s a buckler to all those that trust in Him
  • God shows mercy on His anointed – To David and to his seed forevermore.

LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord GOD – Ezekiel 14-15.

Dear Holy Spirit, Teach me Your ways and impart to me Your wisdom and revelation of the Word of God, that I may know God’s heart, Anoint my writing.. In Jesus name Amen

KNOWING THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS – In  Ezekiel 14, God shares His Just and Holy heart with Prophet…  We take sometimes the Path of God to be too light and easy. We are saved and there is nothing that can damage me or touch me. The truth isn’t that, God says the persistent unfaithfulness God abhors, He disapproves of it. He has saved us from grace and paid the full price of our sins.

BE READY ALWAYS

Some of God’s blessings are missed out because of lack of self disciple in a Believer’s life. He may wonder why? God is watching us when we are not watching over ourselves, God is watching us when no one else is there. His eyes are ever on you.. Not to condemn you, but in love and in Love He endures your shame, fall and weaknesses. God isn’t weak that He will not ask of you what you have done or doing.

Persistent unfaithfulness is a condition when the person has fully yielded their bodies and soul to the will and desire of the enemy, Initially it must have been a few moments, but now when you don’t even know what you are thinking, those desires control you and lead you to fulfill the desire that has birthed in satan. You become a puppet, a slave.

Who was initially a free man now slave under bondage that is beyond his capacity to free himself.

In such times does God forsake you? Does not He remember His loving son, whom He came to set free? He does, even in the times of persistent – continuous and repeated unfaithfulness toward God and His covenant …God looks at you. To bring you back, clean and wash you. Whom God loves, God chastises. God is Just, He will not allow sin unpunished, sin is the existence of satan’s domain and God doesn’t want satan to dominate His children.

To get back, a person must repent to God. Must will to come back whole-heartedly. Jesus forgave the person who hung on the cross next to Him, moments away from death. In the Prophecies by Jeremiah, There is a cry that is heard through the lips of Jeremiah the prophet which comes from the heart of God for the backsliding children, Return to Me, and I will heal you of your backsliding.

What you think and believe above God’s righteousness is your power, is the power of darkness and a net that you are under that you don’t even know are trapped. Lord save Your people from false hopes of false doctrines. For the Lord is Our Righteousness, Our Righteousness He establishes for us… through His Word! Eternal. Jesus is same Yesterday, Today and Forever.

But a believer under sin never know when the knock will come!

So Let your ears hear what the Spirit says , when the Truth is spoken to you by God , open and receive.

SET HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE YOUR EYES

There is nothing covered that will not be revealed.

PSALM 18 – PART I

Dearest Lord Holy Spirit, Teach me Your Word and let me be victorious in every battle and strengthen me in Jesus name Amen.

Psalm 18 revealed – 

The Psalmist enters His prayer chamber with lots of trouble that he is undergoing currently, he is reproached by his known people and there are lot of obstacles from the enemy which are shown in the natural realm through lot of chaos and confusion and stagnancy. He is a sure believer. In spite of that, there is a desperate situation where inside and out there is turmoil, He declares in prayer to God – Whom he believes God to be … He opens his heart to God in declaring the strength of the Lord, Believing God is all sufficient, able to help. But do know, in the process of prayer – he is receiving the victory he wanted. He left the prayer chamber with answers to his prayers and victory spiritually & naturally. 

Jesus is my ROCK

JESUS IS MY –

  1. The Lord is my Rock    – meaning foundation, faith in Him
  2. The Lord is my fortress   
  3. Deliverer
  4. My God, my strength
  5. My buckler
  6. The horn of my salvation
  7. My high tower
  8. For who is God save the LORD? Or who is a Rock save the God?
  9. I will call upon the LORD, JESUS is worthy to be praised – I will be saved from mine enemies

David now declares and cries out to God about his troubles, why does he cry to God about his troubles, when God knows it, it shows his humility and also helps him to unburden himself and come out of the realm of flesh – which is death, he is putting his flesh to death that he can enter the peace of God and be in the presence of God and pours out his heart to God knowing God hears every word. The troubles he faces are not minor which he can solve, its beyond his control – he goes into length describing it- that the pains of death surrounds me. I feel the thorn in my flesh

TROUBLES HE IS FACING

  •  Sorrows of death compassed me
  • Floods of ungodly men made me afraid – sometimes the enemy does not give one big unsolvable problem, underneath that is floods of other unsolved issues
  • The sorrows of hell compassed me about
  • The snares of death prevented me

Believer decide to call – seek God in prayer, pray and wait in prayer … yes, you are weak now, but God by His Spirit will empower you. For the Holy Spirit will pray through you. For you are the temple God dwells in, though weak stand on the Rock, He will deliver. To the weak, frustrated… Come to Christ, ask Our Blessed Helper to pray and intercede. Reach out to Him like never before. You have to maybe spend more time, but you will meet the Lord and be victorious. There comes a time in prayer where tears become your language, you cry and hear the groan of the Spirit. You come in weakness, but you don’t stay weak, you rise in Success and Joy.

ACTION BY THE BELIEVER IN TIME OF TROUBLE & DISTRESS

  • I will call upon the LORD, JESUS who is worthy to be praised – I will be saved from mine enemies
  • In my distress i called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God.

You prayed once, twice, a year and waited for long, but believe this is your day for a miracle when the Most High will rise to help. Ask help to pray a prayer that will move God into actions. God is merciful, His heart melts at the tears of his children.Believers in fiery trials will gird themselves in prayer to reach out and bring themselves to Him. Wow, the greatest joy is to know God heard your voice..above all the praise of saints in heaven, all the angels and elders praising God and declaring His Glory.. God’s heart was seeking His children who will set their heart to seek Him, that voice is more pleasing to Him than all the angels praising in paradise. He longs for you to come to Him, He longs as a father who has 100 children, but still longs to love each one of them. 

Running after GOD

CALLING THAT REACHES TO GOD

  • He heard my voice out of His temple, my cry came before Him, even unto His ears

We don’t pray that the situations remain same, we don’t pray because it looks nice and feels nice to pray, we pray because we have to get out of the mess satan has created, our wrong decisions that has brought us in trouble.. we pray to seek Jesus, He alone can help. It’s Jesus, It’s Jesus, It’s the Holy and the Mighty One.. who can come and save you. God isn’t interested in religious acts of prayer, that is full of words and spirit is away, He is wanting prayer that will bring Him into action. He seeks those who set their heart in Him.Because of the cry of His Child , God comes into the scene. Finally, He rises to defend and protect His child, Yes prayerlessness kept Him away but when we just took time to pray… He comes in .. To destroy the enemy.

GOD Intercedes

 GOD’S RESPONSE

  1. Then The earth shook and trembled – after the prayer.
  2. The foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was angry
  3. There went up smoke out of his nostrils
  4. Fire out of his mouth devoured, coals were kindled by it
  5. He bowed the heavens also
  6. He also came down,
  7. Darkness under his feet
  8. He rode upon a cherub and did fly
  9. He did fly upon the wings of the wind
  10. He made darkness his secret place
  11. His pavilion round about him were dark waters
  12. Thick clouds of the skies
  13. At the brightness that was before Him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire
  14. The LORD also thundered in heavens,
  15. The Highest gave His voice
  16. Hail stones and coals of fire
  17. He sent out his arrows and scattered them
  18. He shot out lightning, and discomfited them – against the enemy
  19. The channels of the waters were seen
  20. The foundations of the world were discovered at your rebuke
  21. O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils
