It’s Time To Give Up!

Are you stuck between a rock and a hard place? Give your predicament Up, to The Rock that is higher than you. “This is what the Almighty LORD says: I am going to lay a Rock in Zion, a Rock that has been tested, a precious cornerstone, a solid foundation. Whoever believes [in Him] will not worry.” Isaiah 28:16

Are you heavy laden? Cumbered with a load of care? Give your burdens Up to the Lord. “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Are you blessed coming in and going out? Give your gratitude Up, to the Lord. “Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good.” Psalm 136

Is your quiver full of arrows? Give your children Up to The Lord, who is their Father. “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.” Psalm 127:4-5

Are your barns overflowing with grains and your vats bursting with new wine? Give your first fruits Up unto the Lord, your Provider. “Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first of all your produce.” Proverbs 3:9

Are you alive and kicking? Give yourself Up unto the Lord. “Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.” Romans 12:1

Are you dumbfounded by the happenings of this world? Give your tongue Up to the Lord. “My heart is overflowing with a good word; I speak of the things which I have done concerning the king; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.” Psalm 45:1

Are you tired of running your own life? Give Up ownership and let Christ be your Lord and Savior!

Are you ready to give up? Would you like Jesus Christ to take over? Allow me to pray with you. Say, “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

How To Seal The Deal

To effectively sell a high-end product such as a house, a genuine connection between the one shopping for a home, in this case known as the home seeker, and the one selling the house, in this case known as the realtor, has to be created. This is because the buyer needs to make a decision that’s largely dependent on the seller’s pitch and the seller needs to have a product that fully meets the buyer’s needs. Both parties have therefore got to be very sincere throughout this process: the buyer has to lay out his/her specific needs and the seller has to outline everything that the product offers. Considering the fact that buying a house is a costly affair, the seller has to be willing to customise some features of the house to fully satisfy the new homeowner, or otherwise lose that sale.

Below is a step-by-step guide to a successful process:

  1. Lead Generation – finding those seeking to buy a house. This is done by the realtor. Most of the times, the home seeker sets out to look for his/her dream house. The realtor must therefore position his/her product well on the shelf (a place where it’s visible e.g. online advertising, Showhouse at site, activations, etc.)
  2. Lead Qualification – among your findings, narrow down those who fit your product i.e their needs (budget, location, size, etc.) versus your offer (price, size, features, amenities, etc.). A lot of activity lies here. This includes: site visits, to and fro negotiations, lawyer to lawyer representation, until a common ground is finally reached.
  3. Close – deal or no deal. Sale or no sale. Seal or no seal.

Our bodies are the houses on sale, our spirit-man is the realtor and God is the one seeking a home to come and dwell in. Jesus Christ is the Lawyer (Advocate) representing both sides in the entire process.

img_2361

Our spirit man is hungry for something deeper thus attracts spiritual leads whenever we seek for answers (lead generation).

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.Hebrews 11:6

We come across very many interpretations of the answer (different religions). God, being the one drawing us to Himself, softly communicates to us (through the Holy Spirit) His need to dwell in us thus what He requires us to do so that He May come and make our hearts His home. We end up settling for that which we feel is the solution (lead qualification), based on our values, beliefs, etc. We lay ourselves bare before this Lead (God), asking Him what changes need to be made to make His stay in our hearts pleasant. As the realtor, we should be willing to make those changes God recommends, since all of them are within His budget (His Son dying for us on the Cross). The features of our the house (our hearts desires) begin to mirror God’s fruit and gifts. The amenities of the house (what we do and where we go) begin to line up with God’s purpose for our lives.

The Home Seeker came already convinced about purchasing the house (For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God 1 Peter 1:18-19). He even paid for it way in advance (the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the worldRevelation 13:8). His budget is the Blood of Jesus, His location is your heart and His size is all of you – your everything. The Advocate (Jesus) has already put a seal on the offer. He knows what’s best for His client since He was involved from the onset.

Is your house still available for sale? Are you yet to seal the deal? Allow me to pray with you. Say, “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

Day One Of The Year 2019

Planning to have a pretty easy year.

I’m greener than this dress about my tomorrow, clearer than this blue sky about my open heavens, surer than this gate about God’s protection, hotter than this scorching weather and as eager to face the new year as my feet are eager to get off the burning tarmac.

May my smile be warm enough to communicate to you that God’s got everything under control. Happy New Year!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

THE TESTIMONY OF THE CHURCH – WITNESSES FOR CHRIST

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *17/08/2018*
📜 *-Revelation 12:11*
_*“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”*_

💥The Church of Jesus Christ of which we are is the most powerful force this earth has ever encountered, for we are called to be militant (Warrior-Bride) _*(Ephesians 6:12)*_ and we got a privilege that we joined the company of men and women who proclaimed their testimony to the world till death (The saints of old),
_*(Hebrews 12:1).*_

☀The testimony presented to us in our theme verse, was attesting to Christ’s power in the mouth of these saints and they lived for it even in the face of death. For we are called to live after the same manner if we are to overcome the prince of this age, they testified of His victory until death, for these were/are true disciples. Our testimony must bear record of the victory of Christ’s cross over the enemy of His Kingdom.

🔥Our Lord admonished us that if we are to be His disciples, we are to bear our cross daily and follow after Him even to death _*(Luke 14:26-27).*_ Ask yourself a question today, does your life bear this witness that you’re living for Him and are not ashamed of His testimony? We all at a certain moment of our lives must face this truth that if Christ is worth living for, he is worth dying for, we must unashamedly carry this testimony, as Paul put it “for I am not ashamed of the Gospel, it’s the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes” _*(Romans 1:16).*_ It’s this testimony and the power of His blood that keeps us (The Church) a powerful force in this earth. We must count the cost, this testimony we bear carries death and glory with it. For everything we do must point men to The Christ, and when we do He will draw all men unto Himself. Let Christ be revealed in you, and the gates of hell shall not prevail in the midst of your testimony
_*(Matthew 16:18)*_

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father I thank You for the glorious power of Your Word and the testimony of Your Son Jesus Christ that drew me to You in Your mercy, by Your grace I declare that I will be true to the cause of Christ to the end, for I will be faithful to the end to bear Your glory. For I am not ashamed of Your gospel because it’s the power that saves humanity. Reveal Your glory through me to men in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen_

IN THE QUIET – HE IS SPEAKING

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *14/08/2018*
📜 *—Psalm 46:10 NIV*
_*“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”*_

💥When you enter into prayer, you need to eliminate distractions and become quiet. You can’t pray effectively when all around you the children are playing, music is blaring, the television is on, and people are asking you questions.

☀Prayer necessitates collecting yourself—your thoughts, your attention, your concentration. We are usually distracted by many things when we come to prayer. Our bodies are there, but our minds are somewhere else. We might be experiencing all kinds of emotions. Therefore, you need to put yourself in a position where you can become quiet.

🌹Let the Lord calm your heart, for He is more than enough. “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” _*(Isaiah 26:3).*_ God provides everything you need, so you don’t have to be distracted by worry when you pray. When you come before the Lord in your private place, be quiet and listen to nothing but Him. The Lord says, “Be still and know that I am God.” In relation to this command, we can say, “Prayer is the expression of man’s dependency upon God for all things.”

🥀Let’s learn to spend time in quiet contemplation before the Lord. Don’t worry about speaking. It’s all right to say nothing. Just be quiet and bring your whole self to God in prayer. Calm your heart and come into the quiet place where you can hear Him. That’s when you are really praying.

☝ *GOLDEN THOUGHT*☝
_Silence helps bring you into a unity of heart and purpose with yourself and God._

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I long to be still and know You. I want to commune with You in the quiet of my heart. Help me find that place of rest in You in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

THE UNSEARCHABLE RICHES OF GOD’S GRACE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *13/08/2018*
📜 *—Ephesians 1:3 NIV.*
_*“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”*_

💥Imagine an elderly couple living in a dilapidated farmhouse. They can barely afford the few groceries and medicines that they need. There isn’t even enough money to keep the heat on all the time.

☀Then a short while after they both have died, a huge deposit of oil is discovered on the old homestead. All their years of poverty were lived out sitting on top of untapped wealth.

🌹Sadly, many Christians go through life like that elderly couple. Such believers have distilled Christianity down to its most basic elements: God saved me and someday I’ll go to heaven. Though Jesus offers an abundant life now _*(John 10:10),*_ they aren’t living it. Spiritually poor believers fail to tap into the reservoir of God’s grace. Eternity begins the moment we are saved; there is no reason to wait until heaven to enjoy the Lord’s riches.

🥀God has lavished His grace upon believers. We receive righteousness, freedom from legalism, and an unbreakable union with our Father. In return, He desires that we invest time and energy in our relationship with Him. As we open ourselves to the Father, everything He has to offer pours freely into our lives. Our connection with Him makes it possible for us to live joyful, contented lives overflowing with blessing.

🌺True wealth isn’t measured by your bank account or automobile. As fellow heirs with Christ _*(Romans 8:17),*_ believers have access to God’s riches, which include unspeakable joy, unconditional love, and peace beyond understanding. Invest in your spiritual life, and enjoy these blessings of grace.

☝ *GOLDEN THOUGHT*☝
_Spiritually poor believers fail to tap into the reservoir of God’s grace. Eternity begins the moment we are saved; there is no reason to wait until heaven to enjoy the Lord’s riches._

SHABBAT DECLARATIONS

🙌 “`Praise Our God, Precious Saints……..“`

📜 *Job:22:28*
_*”Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”*_

👌Remember there’s power in declaring The Word of God over your life daily.

🙏I boldly and audibly decree and declare that:-

🔥 _I am confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ_ *(Philippians 1:6).*

🔥 _God works in me both to will and to do His good pleasure_ *(Philippians 2:13).*

🔥 _I do all things without grumbling or complaining so that I will prove myself to be blameless and innocent. I am a child of God who is above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom I appear as lights in the world_ *(Philippians 2:14-15).*

🔥 _I hold fast to the word of life. In the day of Christ’s return, I will have reason to glory because I did not run or labor in vain_ *(Philippians 2:16).*

🔥 _I always rejoice in the Lord and my gentleness (graciousness or forbearance) is known to all people_ *(Philippians 4:4,5).* In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!

GOD — THE EVERLASTING ONE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *10/8/2018*
📜 *—Isaiah 40:28-31 KJV*
_*“Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”*_

💥Depending on The EVARLASTING GOD is not a slogan; it should be a commitment, and the foundation for our lives. Isaiah provided important reasons why we must focus on Him.

☀First, He is “everlasting.” This means that He is beyond time. He is God today, and throughout all eternity. He is the same in every generation. He is the LORD of every place, and every person. The Creator. The One who originated all things. He knows everything about everyone, and everything.

🌟Since we are limited, we can forget that He has no limits. Since we have weaknesses, we can forget that God has no weaknesses. His power never ends. We can call on Him with confidence, at any time, for any need.

⭐Isaiah tells us that His understanding is unsearchable. This means that, no matter how hard we try, we never can fully grasp all that He has done, or planned. Knowing these truths, to realize the importance of prayer. To seek a more intimate relationship with Him. To study His Word.

👌If we grasp these truths, we will understand why God rewards those who wait on Him. He is prepared to give us what we need from His inexhaustible resources. Even young people, in the prime of life, become weary. But, eventually, every person will fall, and fall short.

🚨Everything changes for those who wait on the Lord. When we aren’t impatient but expect Him to answer our prayers. When we don’t waiver. As we wait, we demonstrate that we trust Him and understand His character. That we have placed our hope in Him.

🛑 *GOLDEN THOUGHT*🛑

_Father I thank You because You’re the Everlasting God, my heart rejoices in that fact, therefore I wait on You, I’ll not run out of strength, I run and not grow weary and I will walk and not faint this year in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

A CALL TO SHINE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *9/08/2018*
📜 *—Daniel 12:3 KJV*
_*“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”*_

💥In a series of visions, Daniel was told of a time filled with distress. But he also was told that “everyone who is found written in the book” will be rescued.

☀While these words pointed to the future, Daniel also was given insights with practical implications for our daily lives. In fact, we are to “shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven.” Here, in this life, we are to point others toward God.

🌟The message is that our lives are to be characterized by a shining brightness. For us to demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through our lives.

⭐As Jesus taught, His followers are to be “the light of the world.” As lights, we are to shine for Him. This means realizing that He puts us in situations so that others might see His light through our lives.

🚨In these situations, we are to let the light of the Gospel shine through us. Others should see that the Gospel is real through our example. We are to shine in such a way that others will glorify our Father in Heaven _*(Matthew 5:14-16).*_

☝Remember the old hymn? “`“We Shall Shine as the Stars.” In this present world, we may “tarry awhile here as strangers,” but after Jesus comes again, He “will crown us in glory.”
We may not be famous or “rich in earth’s treasures.” But in eternity we will “be rewarded.” Then we will “shine as the stars of the morning.” Thanks to Jesus, eternally we will “shine as the sun.”“`

👌This season, make sure that your light is shining brightly through the words that you speak and the things you do. Allow God’s light to shine through you.

🛑 *GOLDEN THOUGHT*🛑
_The message is that our lives are to be characterized by a shining brightness. For us to demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through our lives._

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I dedicate my life to You. May Your light shine brightly through me. Use me that others might know the truth and that the Gospel might be brought to the Nations in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *8/8/2018*
📜 *John 8:44*
_*When [the devil] speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.*_

🤷‍♂Some people find it difficult to believe God’s promises because they’ve seen so many things in the natural world that seem to contradict them. They’ve seen faithful tithers go broke. They’ve seen sick Christians fail to receive their healing.

🚫In reality, it would be more accurate to say that they think they’ve seen those things. Because, you see, there’s a deceiver at work in the world. A deceiver who’s busily doing the same thing he’s been doing ever since the Garden of Eden: tricking mankind into believing God’s Word isn’t true.

❌And, after working on it for thousands of years, he’s a master at it. Think about that the next time he tries to make things look as though God’s Word is not going to work for you, when he makes it look like all hope is lost. Say, “I don’t care about appearances. I believe the Word and I refuse to doubt it.”

☝Let me show you what I mean. Have you ever seen a magic show where someone crawls inside a box and then is sawn in half? You can see it with your own two eyes. The guy’s feet are sticking out one end of the box and his head is poking out the other, and the box is plainly cut in two. Then the magician slides the two halves back together and the sawed-apart fellow jumps out of the box in one piece.

👏Now tell me, did you really believe, even for a moment, that fellow was truly cut in half? Of course not! You knew that you’d seen a trick, a deception, something that appeared one way when, in reality, it was a different way altogether. You may not have known how it was done. You may not have been able to explain it. But you knew a person couldn’t be sawn in half, then put back together, so you refused to believe your eyes.

✋That’s exactly the way you need to be where the Word of God is concerned. You need to learn to trust it and rely on it to such an extent that when Satan shows you something in the natural world that appears to contradict it, you just say, “Well, I saw that, but I’m not going to be gullible enough to believe it. I’m just going to stick with the Word.”

♦If you’ll do that, the father of lies will never be able to put one over on you.
*I pray for you, that God will grace you to stand firm on His promises against all odds.*

🛑 *FURTHER READ*🛑
Psalm 119:89-104

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, Thy Word is Truth, for it makes the simple wise. With the whole amour of God on me, I stand to rebuke all the lies of the devil sent to endanger my faith. I believe the Word of God, I can do what it says I can do, and I am what it says I am, In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

WAKE UP TO GOD’S DREAM

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *7/8/2018*
📜 *Exodus 3:11-12*
_*And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said, Certainly I will be with thee.*_

💭Have you ever had a Holy Spirit-inspired dream, a dream of doing something really great for Jesus? A dream of being so prosperous, for instance, that you can finance a nationwide revival? A dream of leading thousands of people to the Lord?

⛔At one time or another, you probably have, but perhaps you backed away from it. You thought, Oh my, I couldn’t do that. satan’s kept me defeated for so long I have a poor self-image.

♦If so, I have some good news for you. If you’ll believe God, even a poor self-image won’t keep you from success. Look in the book of Exodus and you’ll see a man who proved that. His name was Moses.

🔴Moses didn’t have a very good self-image. He’d made a terrible mistake early in his career. It was a mistake that drove him into the wilderness and kept him there for 40 years herding someone else’s sheep.

📍He’d once dreamed of being a deliverer of God’s people, but no more. As far as he was concerned, he was finished…a failure…a flop!

👏But God didn’t think so. In fact, when God came to Moses in that wilderness, He didn’t ask for Moses’ credentials. He didn’t mention his shady history. He just told him to go see Pharaoh and tell him to let God’s people go.

💥Moses, however, was still wrestling with his poor self-image. “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh?” he stammered.
You know what God said in response? He just said, “Certainly, I will be with thee.”

☀You see, it didn’t matter who Moses was. What mattered was that the living God was with him. The same thing is true for you today. You don’t need a history of successes behind you to answer God’s call. You don’t need a string of spiritual credentials. All you need is the presence of the Lord.

💫Think about that when the devil tells you you’re a failure, when he says you’ll never be able to do what God has put in your heart to do. Put him in his place. Tell him it doesn’t matter who you are because the living God is with you. *Then dare to wake up to God’s dream for Your life!*

Exodus 3:1-14

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I praise You for Your generous call on my life. Here am I LORD, fulfill Your agenda through me like You did with the prophets of old. Deliver me from the traps of satan that are geared to hinder me from Your dream for my Life. Let my life bring You glory in Jesus Christ’s Name.Amen!_

PATIENTLY WAIT ON HIS PROMISES

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *3/8/2018*
📜 *Hebrews 6:12*
_*…Be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.*_

👣You’ve been walking by faith. You’ve been believing God to meet your need. But what do you do when the results seem slow in coming and you are tempted to give up?
*Be patient!*

☝There is not much said about patience these days. But, when it comes to receiving from God, it is just as important as faith.

👌It will make the difference between success and failure for you.

👉Patience undergirds and sustains faith until the result is manifest. After you have meditated on the promises of God and have them in your spirit, patience will encourage you to hold steady. Patience is power. It has the courage to refuse the lie of Satan that says the Word is not working for you. It knows that God’s Word has never failed. Patience will not draw back in fear but will press forward in faith until you have the answer.

🏁When the results of your faith seem slow in coming, don’t give up! Continue to put the Word first, with patience, and you will surely receive the promise of God!

GET READY FOR THE OUTPOURING

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *2/8/2018*
📜 *Joel 2:23*
_*Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.*_

🌊There’s a spiritual flood coming. God has promised it. He’s promised us an outpouring of Holy Spirit power that will bring in the greatest harvest of souls any of us have ever seen.

🕎As believers, we’ve been reading about it in the Word and hearing about it from the pulpit for years. We’ve been staring toward heaven so long, waiting for it to come, that we’ve gotten cricks in our spiritual necks. We’ve had this mental image of God pouring down His Spirit from some sort of big heavenly pitcher above us.

👇But you know what? We’ve been looking in the wrong direction!

🏺The pitchers God is going to use to pour out His power are right here on earth. Jesus explained it this way. _“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”_ _*(John 7:38).*_

💧The end-time flood we’ve all been expecting is going to be composed of living waters that will pour forth from believers. The Holy Spirit within us will be the source of all the signs and wonders and miracles the prophets foretold. And when we begin to fervently pray the prayer of intercession, the flood of that power will begin to flow.

✝ *Zechariah 10:1* says, _“Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.”_

🛐Our prayers, our intercession, are what will release the great outpouring of God’s Spirit. As we begin to join together and cry out to God, the rivers of living water within each one of us will join together and become a flood of spiritual power in the earth.

☝So, ask, pray for a Holy Ghost gully-washer. Intercede for the outpouring. Make this mighty flood of spiritual power a priority in your prayer life.

🙌Glory to God, The outpouring is here

👏 ~*NOTE:*~
*I urge us wherever we are and whatever Church we go to, go back and join the intercessory group to ask God for the release of this promise in our world today.*

LOOK INTO HIS GLORY

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *1/8/2018*
📜 *2 Corinthians 3:18*
_*But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.*_

✌Have you ever thought about the fact that man is the only creature God created who has to wear clothing to cover himself? All the other creatures grow their own coverings. Some grow fur, some feathers, others scales or leathery hide. But all are clothed from the inside out!

☝Most people don’t realize it, but in the beginning, man was clothed that way too. He was made in the image of God. And, if you’ll look in _*Ezekiel 8:2,*_ you’ll find that God is clothed in fire from the loins up and from the loins down. That fire is His glory emanating outward from His innermost being.

💡When man was first created, he was like that too. He was covered with the very glory of God. It radiated from his inner being outward. That’s why he had no sense of nakedness until after he sinned and the glory departed from him.

👉It was a tragic day when man lost that glorious covering. But I want you to know something today. It’s not lost forever. _The Word of God says we can gain it back._

🛐You see, when you put your faith in the blood of Jesus and were born again, the glory of God once again took up residence in you. It may be well-hidden right now, but believe me, it’s in there.

✝And the Bible says that as you gaze into the Lord’s face by studying the Word and fellowshiping with Him, as you renew your mind to understand who you are in Christ, you’ll be changed into His image on the outside as well. As you learn to hear His voice and obey it, you’ll start giving outward expression of the glory within you. Little by little, you’ll be turned inside out!

♦Instead of simply staring into your closet every morning, spend some time gazing at Jesus and beholding His Word. Let Him clothe you in His radiant presence. Once His glory starts shining through, anything you wear will look beautiful on you.

RESIST THE DEVIL

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *31/7/2018*
📜 *—James 4:7*
_*Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.*_

🛐If you’ve been crying and asking God to run the devil out of your life, stop! The Bible says you’re the one who’s supposed to overcome the devil.

👊How? By resisting him. By rebelling against him when he tells you to do something and doing what God says instead! When satan tells you some lie, contradict him with the Word of God. Oppose him. This verse says when you do that, he’ll flee from you. He’ll “run as in terror.”

💣That means everywhere you go, as you walk in faith and oppose the devil, darkness is pushed back.

✋So start pushing back that darkness. You can do it! The life of God is within you. Jesus Himself is living inside you. Everywhere you go, He goes. Every problem that rises up against you, every evil spirit that tries to influence your life, is coming up against God when it comes up against you.

✝All you need to do is become conscious of that. Begin now living your life moment by moment, knowing that the light of God is in you. The Word of God is in you. The Spirit of God is in you.

👉Live knowing that Jesus, the Son of God, is in you. Then watch the devil run!

MY GOD – MY DELIVERER

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *30/7/2018*
📜 *—Psalm 32:7*
_*Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.*_

🛡In this day and time, trouble seems to surround us on every side. If it’s not a failing economy, it’s a failing business, a failing marriage or failing health. Yet, in the midst of seemingly overwhelming problems, God has promised to deliver us.

☝Let me give you a word of advice though. _*If you want God to your trouble, then you must let Him be God and LORD of your heart. God honors those who honor Him.*_ So, if you’re facing some problems today, don’t just start kicking and screaming and begging Him to save you from them. Honor Him by going to His Word and doing what He says you should do.

♥ _*Psalm 34*_ is a good place to start. It says, for example, that you should seek God _*(verse 4).*_ As you seek Him, He will deliver you from the things that threaten you.

✌Secondly, it instructs you to cry out to the Lord. He will save you out of all your troubles _*(verse 6).*_

👏Next it tells you to fear the Lord. If you don’t know how to do that, _*verses 11-14*_ will tell you exactly what you need to know: You must keep from speaking evil and deceit; depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

♥Remember, _*if you want God to be God in your trouble, let Him be God of your heart.*_ When you do that, all of heaven will get involved in your deliverance—and your triumph will be guaranteed.

THE SUPERNATURAL LIFE

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *27/7/2018*
📜 *—Exodus 14:15-16*
_*And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me?… Lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.*_

🌹If you hang around God very much, it won’t be long before you’ll start wanting to do things the world considers supernatural. You’ll start wanting to lay hands on the sick and have them recover. You’ll start wanting to cast out demons. You’ll start wanting to cast mountainous problems into the sea.

👉 “`What’s more, you can do it if you want to!“`

🛠How? Not by jumping out and “trying” to do supernatural things, but by obeying God one step at a time. By doing the things He’s already given you power to do.

♦That’s how it happened with Moses. He didn’t have the power to divide the Red Sea. But he did have the power to stretch his rod out over it. And when he did that in obedience to the Lord’s command, the Holy Spirit did the rest.

👌It will be the same way with you. When you start doing your part, the Holy Spirit will do His and supernatural things will start happening around you.

👏What is your part? _Feeding on the Word. Praying in the spirit. Listening to what the Spirit of God says to you._ As you do those things, as you begin to move as God impresses you to move and take your direction from Him, you’ll flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies in the air.

💡You won’t struggle and strain and try to “part the sea.” You’ll just trust the Lord and stretch out your rod…and watch the miracles roll.

GOD’S ORDER OF CREATION

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *26/7/2018*

📜 *—Hebrews 11:3*
_*Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.*_

🌍 *God uses words to create.* He used His Word to “frame” the worlds. Just look in the first chapter of Genesis and count how many times you see the phrase, “And God said.” “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light…. And God said, Let there be a firmament…. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together…. And God said, Let the earth bring forth…” _*(verses 3, 6, 9, 11).*_

☝God doesn’t do anything without saying it first. _That’s His order of creation._ If you’re smart, you’ll use that mode of operation too. You’ll take His words and speak them out until they take on form and substance and become a reality in your life.

👉“Well, I tried that and it didn’t work. I said, ‘By His stripes I’m healed’ four times and nothing happened.”

♦Big deal. God started saying that Jesus was coming in the Garden of Eden. He said it again in Exodus. He said it again in Numbers and Deuteronomy. He said it in Isaiah and the other prophets. He said it all through the Old Testament, over and over again.

🕎Then after about 4,000 years, the book of John tells us, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” (1:14).

✝So if you’ve said you’re healed four times and nothing’s happened, don’t worry about it. Just keep saying it! You might think it’s taking a long time to manifest, but I’ll guarantee you, it won’t take 7,000 years.

⬆Do you want to operate in God’s power? Then use His way of operation. *Speak out His words and let them frame a life full of blessing for you!*

🛑 *FURTHER READ*🛑
Genesis 1

🙏 *PRAYER*🙏
_Father, I thank You for Your Word which is life for me. By the same order of creation demonstrated in Your Word, I declare that my world is being framed to the will of God. I flow in God’s divine mandate without struggle by the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen!_

STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH

🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *25/7/2018*
📜 *—1 Peter 5:9-10, The Amplified Bible*
_*Withstand [the devil]; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace…will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen and settle you.*_

👏No matter how long you’ve been living by faith, no matter how much you’ve learned about it, every once in a while you’re going to suffer a setback. You’re going to run into some circumstances that just don’t turn out the way you expect them to.

👉When that happens, remember this: _*Those setbacks are just temporary.*_ _You may have lost a battle, but you’re not going to lose the war. Just get up and go at it again._

🚫“But I don’t understand it,” you say. “I did the best I could. I walked in all the truth I knew to walk in. Why didn’t I get the victory?”

👌Because there was something you didn’t know! It shouldn’t shock you too much that there are things you don’t know about the realm of the spirit. Many a times, we spent untold hours in the Word. Yet it seems like the more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know.

✊So, in tough situations where we can’t seem to get victory we have to ask God for more wisdom _*(James 1:5).*_ If you’ll look in _*2 Samuel 21*_, you can see a time when King David had to do that. His country had been suffering from a famine for three years and David just didn’t understand it, so he inquired of the Lord. You know what the Lord told him? He told him the famine had come because of something Saul had done! Isn’t that amazing? Saul had been dead for years, yet what he’d put in motion in the realm of the spirit was still affecting his country.

♦David could have just given up when his usual confessions of faith and ways of praying didn’t drive out that famine, but he didn’t. He inquired of God for more wisdom. He used his temporary setback to cause him to seek more knowledge from God.

👣Follow his example! Overcome the habit of quitting because of temporary setbacks. Refuse to let them knock you out of the game. After all, this thing’s not over till it’s over. And the Bible says when it’s all over, you’ll have won. So just be steadfast in your faith. In the end your victory is guaranteed.

FREE FROM THE PAST

🔥 *DAILY DEVOTION*🔥

📆 *24/7/2018*

📜 *—Philippians 3:13*
_*…But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.*_

💔Failures and disappointments. Aches and pains from the past that just won’t seem to go away. Most of us know what it’s like to suffer from them but too few of us know just what to do about them. So we limp along, hoping somehow they’ll magically stop hurting.

🚫But it never happens that way. In fact, the passing of time often leaves us in worse condition—not better. Because, instead of putting those painful failures behind us, we often dwell on them until they become more real to us than the promises of God. We focus on them until we become bogged down in depression, frozen in our tracks by the fear that if we go on, we’ll only fail again.

☝Too often we pattern our thoughts off the past instead of the future. We ought not to do that! Unbelief looks at the past and says, “See, it can’t be done.” But faith looks at the future and says, “It can be done, and according to the promises of God, it is done!” Then putting past failures behind it forever, faith steps out and acts like the victory’s already been won.

🕎If depression has driven you into a spiritual nose dive, break out of it by getting your eyes off the past and onto your future—a future that’s been guaranteed by Christ Jesus through the great and precious promises in His Word.

⬆Forget about those failures in the past! That’s what God has done _*(Hebrews 8:12).*_ And if He doesn’t remember them anymore, why should you?

🛐The Bible says God’s mercies are new every morning _*(Lamentations 3:23).*_ So if you’ll take God at His Word, you can wake up every morning to a brand-new life. You can live life totally unhindered by the past.

👉So, do it! Replace thoughts of yesterday’s mistakes with scriptural promises about your future. As you do that, hope will start taking the place of depression. The spiritual aches and pains that have crippled you for so long will quickly disappear. Instead of looking behind you and saying, _*“I can’t,” you’ll begin to look ahead and say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me!”*_

🛑 *FURTHER READ*🛑

GOD SAYS, “YOU ARE MY PEOPLE”

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, June 4, 2018

Good Morning! 🙂

📜2 Corinthians 6:16 “And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”

🏰God has chosen to dwell in us. This goes to show how important we are to Him. Consider this: Even the heavens cannot contain God due to His vastness (1 Kings 8:27). We can therefore have as much of God’s presence within us as we want. The key is to have enough timber to keep our spiritual lives burning for more. “An immense amount of timber will be needed, for the Temple I am going to build will be very large and magnificent.” 2 Chronicles 2:9

🌊The more we abide in God, the deeper our relationship with Him gets, thus we get to know Who exactly dwells in us. We get to know His likes and dislikes, His Power, His desires, etc. We basically get to know the essence of Him coming into our lives. (Study John 15:1-11)

💡Once we have known Who God is, then we will be able to manifest His presence. We can only manifest that which we have taken time to study. We shall lay hands on the sick and they shall be healed only after we have been with the Healer. There must be a place of experience and encounter with the God behind the Power.

🌹Let us therefore treat our bodies with utmost care; keeping away from sin, eating well, taking enough rest, appreciating and empowering ourselves, etc. Prioritize growth in God above all other things.

🔥The fact that God dwells in me makes my body holy! Pastor Paraz. (Ref: 1 Corinthians 3:16,17)

🙏🏾Father, what an honor it is for me, that You have chosen to make my heart Your home! Thank You for staying. I pray that I may host You in the best way possible, that I may become more like You, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾Have a God-filled day always!🙏🏾

🔥I deeply love the Lord my God with all my heart, and with all my soul, and with all my might. Deuteronomy 6:5

🔥We’re a holy people unto the Lord our God: The Lord our God has chosen us to be a special people unto Himself, above all who are on earth. Deuteronomy 7:6

HOW GOD REMEMBERS US

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Friday, June 1, 2018

A Glorious New Month To You! 🙂

📜Nehemiah 13:14 “Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and do not wipe out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God and for His service.”

📜Nehemiah 13:22b “…For this also remember me, O my God, and have compassion on me according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness.”

📜Nehemiah 13:31b “…Remember me, O my God, for good.”

🛠Year after year we have followed the teachings in the Bible; doing good, serving in church, observing the Sabbath, giving, praying, fasting, etc. None of this has gone wasted. “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

🤔We therefore need to know why we do the things we do. “Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people.” Colossians 3:23

🏰 When we do good, we establish the Kingdom of God and when the Kingdom of God is established, our issues are sorted. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33

🕕Half of the year is almost done. Do not feel as though it’s gone wasted. Every effort counts. Commit everything to God. (1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your cares on Him, because He cares about you.”)

💡You’ve got to first be a member, to be ‘re’membered (renewed membership). Subscribe to the Kingdom of God.

FATHER-SON RELATIONSHIP

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 31, 2018

Good Morning🙂

📜Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

📜Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

🔗 We’re only able to enjoy a limitless life when we’re linked to God since He is the only One who is all knowing. “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired His understanding is inscrutable.” Isaiah 40:28

👑 God governs heaven and He has graced us to govern earth. “The heavens are the LORD’s, but the earth He has given to the human race.” Psalm 115:16. The only way to be effective in governing earth is by inquiring from the Maker of heaven and earth, and that’s why we pray like this, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

✅For us to enjoy continuous success, we simply need to do what we see our Father in heaven do. “So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.” John 5:19

🔥After you have become a son of God, don’t stop there. Daily commune with your Father and you will be surprised at the things you’re capable of achieving. #SupernaturalLife

💡Father + Son = Limitless Possibilities! ©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, thank You for making me Your son and empowering me to do the things You do. I pray I may never disappoint You, by the Power of Your Spirit in me, in Jesus Name, Amen.

A TWO-IN-ONE AGENDA

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

📜Hebrews 4:12 “For the Word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

💪🏾We know that God is all powerful and we also know that He has magnified His Word above His Name (Psalm 138:2). He goes ahead and assures us that no Word that proceeds from His mouth returns empty, without accomplishing His desire and without succeeding in the matter for which He sent it. Isaiah 55:11

✝We should therefore be very careful with the Word of God. The same Word that delivers also destroys, depending on the state of our hearts. The Spirit of God is never absent from His Word.

💥Everytime we come into contact with the Word of God (through personal study, sermons, or even one-on-one exhortation), something happens within us. The Word illuminates our innermost beings and sorts the good from the bad. Thereafter we need to take action, as the Spirit of God leads.

🤷🏽‍♂”But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.” Luke 12:48

🔥👉🏾You’re better off not reading the Bible than puffing yourself up with knowledge without following the instructions therein.

💡The Word of God works; not by us bending it to suit our situation, but by God mending us to spot the revelation. ©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, only You could make The Word alive and active. Remind me to remain aware of the Power (The Holy Spirit) behind Your Word (Jesus Christ) at all times, that I may not abuse You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

CHRISTIAN CODE OF CONDUCT

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 29, 2018

📜1 Peter 2:12 “Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when He judges the world.”

🇮🇱Watch that you do not misrepresent The Kingdom of God. Act as though you are the only ‘Bible’ the people around you will ever read. They will only come to believe in a Gospel that’s already been tried and tested and proven successful.

❓Am I saying that we should live a lie? Certainly not! What I’m trying to say is that we should publicly give God the glory that is due to Him; for who He is and for all that He has done for us, and to privately seek Him for deliverance in the areas we’re still allowing Him to work on.

🗑There’s usually a clothes basket at a hidden corner in your bedroom meant for the dirty clothes and a clothes line right outside your house meant for the laundered clothes.
🧥“👚“👖“👔“👗“👘

⚠Having dirty linen accumulate is bad enough; airing this dirty linen out in the open is another horrible story altogether. Deal with your inner heart issues so that you are able to truly live as the Kingdom expects you to. “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the Truth by our actions” 1 John 3:18

🤔God in His Sovereignty would have caused Christ to be born on earth and when He was 2 years old, He’d have allowed King Herod’s plan in Matthew 2:16 of killing the Messiah to succeed thus Christ dying for our sins. The reason Jesus Christ stayed a while before ultimately being killed is so that we could have a ‘Master Copy’ to work with. “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6

🚫No situation we face should act as an excuse for us living substandard lives. Approach the Master whenever you face challenges. “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.” Hebrews 4:15.

💡Retreat into the secret place with the burden and rejoice in the public place with the blessing. ©αnne¤bure

🙏🏾Father, forgive us for all the times we have misrepresented Your Kingdom in commission of sin or omission of a thriving existence. Guide us to be Your true ambassadors, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

FIRST CLASS TICKET/HEAVEN BOUND

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, May 28, 2018

📜Exodus 33:21 “Then the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the Rock.”

⛰Jesus Christ is the Rock. He’s the One who has prepared for us a place next to God. “And since I’m going away to prepare a place for you, I’ll come back again and welcome you into My presence, so that you may be where I am” John 14:3. He rose from the dead and took His position in heaven. “But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” Luke 22:69

🛋Victory is guaranteed for us who are in Christ since we rule from above. “The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1

⚖”And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

🚞In summary, we departed from home (God’s presence) when we sinned. God created a train (salvation) to bring us back. Christ paid the price by booking a ticket for two (His and ours), went ahead of us to prepare a place and it’s now our responsibility, not only to accept the complimentary ticket but to begin to enjoy God’s presence immediately we do so, for as He is, so are we. “This is how Love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.” 1 John 4:17

🙏🏾Lord, where would I be if it were not for Your Blood? Thank You for saving me and empowering me instantly. I choose to abide in You all the days of my life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

📜John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He *gave* His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”

🔥The highest form of worship is *giving* that which you hold dearest. This act speaks volumes.

Take care of your body since you are to give yourself as a living sacrifice; holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1

🤲🏽Receiving the Son of God is the greatest Love language portrayed by man, unto God. It is our responsibility to *give* ourselves to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Power of the Holy Spirit.

♻We will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word.Acts 6:4

🙏🏾Father, thank You for loving us by giving us Your Son. We give ourselves to You; for Your service, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit.

FROM VICTIM, THROUGH VICTORY, TO VICTOR

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 24, 2018

📜2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the merciful Father, the God from whom all help comes! He helps us in all our troubles, so that we are able to help others who have all kinds of troubles, using the same help that we ourselves have received from God.” GNT

💭Let your TBT (Throw Back Thursday) for today be all the troubles that God has delivered you from. There was a time you had an ‘impossible’ situation and the God of all possibilities came through for you. “…with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

⏭Don’t stop at that. Use these experiences as tools for helping others that are experiencing similar troubles. Let the Light of God in you shine by glorifying Him (giving Him the glory for the deliverance you received) by sharing your testimony, so that they too can glorify your Father. “Matthew 5:16”

😨Having the problem was a headache;
🙂Getting your problem solved is a relief;
😇Helping someone solve their problem will be glorious.

📝Therefore take notes as the Lord delivers you. Each step is crucial; not only for you but also for those you are called to.

💡 In the morning, the issue was a problem. At noon it is a problem solved. In the evening you become a problem solver.©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, over and over You have bailed me out. Today I ask You to remind me of all the successes I have had in You so that I may encourage others. Thank You for Your Word, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

EARTH – LIMITED EDITION

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Praise God!

📜Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely.”

🕒Compare our time here on earth with eternity. There is definitely no comparison at all. The former is short (in a limited way) while the latter is long (in an infinite way).

🤔Our choices here on earth will determine our final destination (life after physical death). Choose Christ and live forever.

↩Yesterday was Tuesday the 22nd of May, 2018; gone, never to return. Today we are a day older; there’s no time our age will reduce.

⬆If we’re convinced of eternity, then we’re better off allowing only the things that positively affect our final destination to take up our time. “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2

🌍”And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.” 1 John 2:17

🕚Time and tide wait for no man. St Marher, 1225.

💭Today we celebrate the life of Mr. Obure Ochoro (Dad) who went ahead of us on this day, 9 years ago. He always emphasized on “Doing the right thing, at the right TIME, at all TIMES.”

🙏🏾Father, thank You for reminding us of the things that truly matter. Help us to fully utilize our time here on earth with heaven in mind, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

GRACE – GOD’S CALL, NOT MAN’S

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Praise God!

📜Psalm 84:11 “For the Lord, God is a Sun and Shield: the Lord will give Grace and Glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

🔥Grace is only found in the sight of the Lord. We’re not the ones to ‘grace’ ourselves. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:8

🤲🏽Therefore if grace is found in the Lord’s sight, then we should labor to be in God’s presence at all times, even when we feel like we have gone contrary to His will. That’s why it is defined as undeserved favor.

✝Christ died, that we may approach the throne of grace boldly (Hebrews 4:16). Here’s where ALL our needs are met. Therefore do not frustrate the grace by keeping away from the Throne (God’s presence) due to one reason or the other. Remember if your ‘righteousness’ was the gauge, then you’d be disqualified since this is like filthy rags before the Lord. Isaiah 64:6

✝Grace is synonymous to Jesus Christ (Philemon 1:24). We’re justified by God’s Grace (Titus 3:7).

👉🏾So then, when the Bible tells us where sin abounded, Grace did much more abound (Romans 5:20), The Word is referring to the sin that has been brought to the foot of the Cross by the repentant man and not the sinner continuing in his/her sinful ways. (Romans 6:6).

💡Grace is a prerequisite for doing every good work. The more you abound in Grace, the more you abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8). You abound in Grace by choosing to remain in the Lord’s eyes night and day.

👎🏾Frustrating Grace means departing from the Cross and expecting It to work for you. © _anneobure_

🙏🏾Father, thank You for Your Grace. Help me to remain at the foot of the Cross, where divine exchange takes place, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

PREPARE YOURSELF

Monday, May 21, 2018

Praise God!

📜1 Corinthians 14:12 “Even so you, for as much as you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that you may excel to the edifying of the church.”

🧙🏽‍♂❌Christianity ain’t magic. There’s order in the Kingdom of God. You should therefore not sit back and expect things to work themselves out. Be an active team player in the body of Christ.

💥The Lord in His Sovereignty can produce something out of nothing and this is the reason He is Supreme. We on the other hand, have to believe in the Lord’s Word and create room for the blessing. “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and became the heir of the righteousness which is by faith.” Hebrews 11:7

🤔God helps those who help themselves is not scriptural. He however adds to those who are ready to receive. You have to be expectant (prepared). “…your expectation shall not be cut short. ” Proverbs 24:14

•Has God said you will run a certain business? Do your research on it. Empower yourself in that line.
•Do you desire to own a car? Learn how to drive.
•Do you believe God wants you rich? Be a giver and save up as well, rather than squandering all.
•Has God healed you? Take care of your body (eat healthy, exercise, etc.)
•Have you read the Bible? Practice the Word.

🍇Practical Example: A farmer who’s looking forward to a bountiful harvest tills the land in readiness for the rain that will cause his crop to sprout. (Read Ecclesiastes 3)

👂🏽When you listen to the Word with the act of attention, you will receive the message being conveyed in its entirety, and this is what will release your miracle.

💡Preparation meets opportunity. Bob Owii

🙏🏾I will play my part in ensuring that what is written/said about me comes to life in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

RECORD THE VISION

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Praise God 🙋🏾‍♀

📜 Habakkuk 2:2 “Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision And inscribe it on tablets, That the one who reads it may run.

🔥God speaks to us at all times; when we’re awake and when we lie down to sleep. Sometimes He does this through our thoughts and dreams and other times through open visions and audible voice.

✒Write everything down, that you may not forget. This is the only way you will keep up with God’s purposes for your life on a daily basis.

🎓 Remember our years in school: the teacher would come and dictate notes and it was our responsibility to write notes so that we revise them in preparation for exams. The same applies to the things of God. There’s always a test that follows. Jeremiah 17:10

👌🏾Remain focused on the subject matter. The Lord created you for a purpose and is more than willing to guide you through every step. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

🙏🏾Father, thank You for Your continuous guidance. Help me to prioritize Your instructions and remind me to implement them whenever trials come, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

UNDIVIDED ATTENTION

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Praise God!

📜 Matthew 22:37 “Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.'”

👑 In this Kingdom you’re either in or out; there’s no in between. (Read Revelation 3:15,16)

❤Have a heart-to-heart with your Father. Be bare before Him. He’s already looked into your heart, thus there’s nothing to hide. (1 Samuel 16:7)

🍲Let the Lord be your Soul food; the only One who satisfies your soul and feeds you with Good things. Develop an appetite for the things that please Him by hanging out with Him as often as you breath ☺. “For He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul He fills with good things.” Psalm 107.9

🧠Mind God’s Business. “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2

💝Live a life totally sold out to the Life Giver. ©AnneObure

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, May 14, 2018

Praise God 🙋🏾‍♀

📜Philippians 2:12 “Dear friends, you always followed My instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.”

✝Step One was to accept the finished work on the Cross; The Resurrected Christ. This is just the beginning. You’ve got to grow; become more and more like Him by the help of the Holy Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18

👍🏾Being a Christian simply means being Christlike; demonstrating Christ’s nature.

👉🏾It is therefore our responsibility to read the Word (synonymous with The Son, Jesus Christ) so as to get to know Him; His likes, dislikes, power, desire, etc. God’s waiting for you to seek Him. “and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:26

🤔Is there anything unclear? Go ahead and ask. Do you feel you lost it somewhere? Go ahead and seek. Does the world seem to hand you road blocks, go ahead and knock. “For everyone asking receives; and the one seeking finds; and to the one knocking, it will be opened.” Matthew 7:8

🤝🏾For as much as this walk is your responsibility, fear not, for the Lord is there to guide you through the journey. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them (issues of life), for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

🏆Go ahead, make your Father proud. Just as someone shared Christ with you through words and deeds, begin to consciously live for Christ so that others may also be saved; otherwise there would not have been a need for you to accept the faith in the first place. 🙂

♻ The Lord knows we’re not yet perfect, therefore our current shortcomings should not be an excuse to unfruitfulness. Take everything to the Lord in prayer (Philippians 4:6) and He will perfect it. (Psalm 138:8)

🙏🏾Father, thank You for saving me. I choose to be a responsible child by doing my part, just as You have faithfully done Yours from the beginning of time. Thank You for Your mercies everytime I have missed it, and Your guidance back to the Way Everlasting, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

👌Remember there’s power in declaring The Word of God over your life daily.

🙏🏾I boldly and audibly decree and declare that:-

🔥I shall reach my promised land by God’s grace and I shall possess it. Numbers 14:24

🔥I shall take care of my body which is the temple of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 6:19. Therefore no wrath, no plague, no disease shall fall upon it. Numbers 18:5

ANGELS

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Friday, May 11, 2018

Praise God 🙋🏾‍♀

📜Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”

💭Yesterday we learnt about being heirs of the Kingdom of God. Today we look at one benefit: having servants called angels that minister to us.

👍🏾God’s got you covered by providing heavenly backup!

👨🏾‍⚖The Bible goes ahead and tells us that we will judge these angels. 1 Corinthians 6:3

🧚🏽‍♂As an heir to the Kingdom, you’re entitled to a 24/7 surveillance security, courtesy of angels. “For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.” Psalm 91:11-12

🤔Picture this: angels serve God by ministering to man, while you serve God directly. Ain’t this cool? 😎

‼As you begin to experience the ministration of the angels, be careful not to worship them. They are your fellow servants. Worship God. Revelation 22:8,9

🙏🏾Father, I’m so grateful for the position You have given me. This day I choose to thank You for equipping me with Your angels, to minister to me and watch over me. I worship You and You alone, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.🙏🏾

KINGDOM BUSINESS

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 10, 2018

Praise God 🙋🏾‍♀

📜Luke 2:49 “Why is it that you have been searching for Me? He replied, ‘Did you not know that it is My duty to be engaged upon My Father’s Business?'”

🤔You’re a Child of God thus an heir to His Kingdom (Romans 8:17). Have you been to an Indian man’s shop? You will notice that all his children are doing one thing or the other so as to hit their father’s targets. The Indian man does this knowing that one day he will die and his kids will inherit his business thus he teaches them everything that pertains to his trade. How much more our Father in heaven?

👍🏾You’re a shareholder in God’s Glory (all that He is and all that He has). Anne Obure

👍🏾You therefore are one of the key determinants of this business’s produce. You share in profits and in losses. (sharing in Christ’s glory as well as sharing in His suffering).

🗝The Job Description of Kingdom Business can be summarized into two words: Soul Winning. You may be employed in a bank, school, hotel, airline, hospital, real estate, or even directly in ministry but you should know you are a Kingdom Citizen even before you mention your title at work. God has put you in that position for such a time as this for a purpose. God has given you that cash for such a time as this for a purpose.

✝Esther 4:14 “Who knows if you haven’t come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?”

💭The purpose of your current blessing is solely for the advancement of the Kingdom of God, a.k.a Kingdom Business 🙂

🙏🏾Father, severally I have deviated from my JD knowingly or unknowingly. Help me to come back to the heart of worship, where it’s ALL about You, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.🙏🏾

GOD WILL REMEMBER YOUR SACRIFICES

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Wednesday, May 9, 2018
_Courtesy of Charity Kibaru_

📜Psalm 20:1-4 “May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the Name of the God of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose.”

💡Choose to be grateful, patient, humble, etc. That in itself is a sacrifice.

👍🏾God’s timing is always the best!

🤗Keep your mind steadfast in God and He in turn will keep you in perfect peace because of your trust in Him. Isaiah 26:3.

🗝Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. Joyce Meyer.

💭Meditate on Psalm Chapter 20

THE RHEMA WORD

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Daily Nourishment That Awakens Your Spirit

📜Matthew 4:4 “But He answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

💡There are two primary Greek words that describe Scripture which are translated “Word” in the New Testament. The first, *logos* , refers principally to the total inspired Word of God and to Jesus, who is the living Word. The second Greek word translated “word” is *rhema* , which refers to the spoken word. Rhema literally means an utterance (individually, collectively or specifically).

👂🏽Just as your body needs food on a daily basis to remain alive, your spirit too needs to hear a fresh Word from God on a daily basis so as to remain on course.

🧚‍♂Just as the Lord sent an angel to Mary with her Word in season, so does He minister to us direction through people, angels, sermons, songs, nature, thoughts, audible voice, etc. “Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your Word.” And the angel departed from her.” Luke 1:38

🔔For you to clearly receive the RHEMA, (spoken) Word of God, you need to first and foremost know the LOGOS (Written) Word of God. “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in It. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

💭The voice in my life that speaks the loudest is the voice that I will heed.

🙏🏾Father, work in me, give me the desire and the Power to focus on that which pleases You, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.🙏🏾

THE GRACE, THE LOVE, THE FELLOWSHIP

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Monday, May 7, 2018

📜2 Corinthians 13:14 “The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Love of God and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”

🙏🏾The Grace – unmerited favor; undeserved gift; unearned kindness, coming from an All-Perfect God to an all-fallen man. This was done through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Read Ephesians 2:8-10)

🙏🏾The Love – the reason behind The Grace; this is the explanation to why an All-Perfect God would give His One and only Son to close the gap created by an all-fallen man. (Read John 3:16)

🙏🏾The Fellowship – this is what was birthed when the Love permitted the Grace. We’re now able to walk and talk with God directly. The Holy Spirit reveals Christ in our hearts. We’re in constant communion with our Father! (Read John 16:12-14)

💡The Grace=Jesus Christ
💡The Love=God
💡The Fellowship=The Holy Spirit

💭God’s Grace is unselective – Joel Osteen

🙏🏾Father, I receive Your Grace (Jesus Christ) through Your Love, that I may fellowship with You through The Holy Spirit now and forever more, Amen🙏🏾

The Ambassadorial Anointing

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Friday, May 4, 2018

📜Luke 10:1 “Now after these things, the Lord also appointed seventy-two others and sent them in two by two before His face, into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.”

🔥When God appoints you, He also anoints you. You are His ambassador wherever you go, and He only sends you where He Himself is going too. 🙂

🔔Begin to expand in your thinking and planning. God has made you a great Nation thus you will begin to attract Nations. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” Genesis 12:2

👔Be intentional in upgrading yourself. Read books, research on diverse topics, know something about everything. Remain current so that you have something to talk about with the kings that are about to come your way.

💡Do not plan because you have; plan because you do not have. That is faith. Furthermore, your husband (God) has it all. “For your Maker is your Husband, the LORD of hosts is his Name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth He is called.” Isaiah 54:5

💭You attract what you think. Begin to think Provision since hosting kings requires a fat budget. As an ambassador you are fully catered for by the One who has sent you; The Great I Am!

👘Dress like one who is going to be addressed. You cannot afford to misrepresent The Kingdom of God. Dress to kill the devil!

🤗While at God’s service, remember to feel good; no better place to be than where God wants you to be. Your feelings matter to God. Until you feel good, you cannot make others feel good.

💭Meditate on Genesis Chapter 12

🙏🏾Father, I accept Your appointment and deeply grateful for Your anointing. May I learn to work with Your budget as I occupy until You come, in Jesus Name, Amen🙏🏾

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥

📜Joshua 22:5 “But take diligent HEED to the commandment and the law:… LOVE the Lord your God, WALK in His ways, KEEP His commandments, CLEAVE unto Him and SERVE Him with all your heart and soul.”

🔥The following keys will unlock all your doors when you choose to put them into use:

🔑Heeding to God’s Word – unlocks success. “Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD.” Proverbs 16:20

🔑Loving God – unlocks intimacy. “But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.” 1 Corinthians 8:3

🔑Walking in God’s ways – unlocks deliverance. Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in Wisdom will be delivered. Proverbs 28:26

🔑Keeping God’s commandments – Unlocks manifestations. “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:21

🔑Cleaving to God – unlocks security. I cling (cleave) to You; Your strong right hand holds me securely.” Psalm 63:8

🔑Serving God – unlocks forgiveness, healing, redemption, steadfast love and mercy, satisfaction and youthfulness. Psalm 103:1-5

✝Christ is the Master Key to all locks.

💭 Meditate on Psalm 103

🙏🏾Father, I intentionally choose to heed Your Word, to deeply love You, to obediently walk in Your ways, to keenly keep Your commandments, to tightly cleave to You and faithfully serve You all the days of my life, in Jesus Name, Amen🙏🏾

Does God Respect Man?

By God’s Grace (kindness) and Mercy (compassion), we are respected. What do I mean by this? Sin came into the world through man and this caused God to turn His face away from man. Man was cursed (due to sin) and could only be delivered through the Sinless Sacrifice, causing God to give His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die in the place of man, and glory be to God, death could not keep its hold on Him! (Acts 2:24). This is indeed God’s Grace and Mercy.

What does respect mean?

Let’s break this word into two:

  1. Re – a prefix meaning ‘again and again’, repetition.
  2. Spect – to see; to observe; to look; to watch over.

Therefore, respect means:

  • To see someone in a positive Light
  • To show concern; to show pity
  • To turn back towards; to return
  • To help; to extend favor (to favorably look upon)

Why did God do this? Do we really deserve respect? The answer is no. Respect is the undeserved ‘favor’ that is portrayed by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The two words can be used interchangeably.

This is the main reason why destruction CANNOT and will not come upon us.

On A Light Note: Now I understand what scholars mean when they say, ‘Respect is earned and is also two – way’ As I respect God, He in turn respects (favors) me.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your Grace and Mercy over my life that has caused You to respect (favor) me. Thank You for seeing me in a positive Light. Thank You for showing concern over my life. Thank You for returning; turning back towards me. Thank You for helping me. Because of this, destruction shall NEVER come my way in Jesus Name, Amen!

Music Corner:

You ask, ‘What does it take to be respected (favored) by the Lord? All you need to do is to say this simple prayer: “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Now I surrender. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

Salvation is A glorious epilogue to man’s existence! Being Swallowed up by the Love of Christ, the Word of God being my Favorite Place; I am no longer Faceless! Not a Foreigner in the Kingdom of God, but a Child of God!

If you prayed this prayer, feel free to contact me and I will guide you as Christ guides me. Follow  Nations Arise Revival Ministries for your Daily Devotions and grow to be more and more like Christ. God bless you.

Would you like His Name as your surname? I invite you to say this simple prayer: Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Now I surrender. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

Love…And Her Components

Spiritual Growth. My Candid Nature as a Child of God.

The fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, humility (meekness, gentleness), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. Galatians 5:22-23

Prayer: Holy Spirit, I surrender to your teaching and guidance. May Your fruit grow in me, and make me a better person in Jesus Name, Amen.

Spot On!

A Loophole To Academic Performance. Maturity Over Time.
School assembly had just ended with a prayer from the Senior Teacher, Mrs. Pendo. The pupils began to systematically stream out of the hall; girls first, followed by their male counterparts; from the pre-units all the way to the candidates. Being a school prefect, it was my duty to ensure that this order was kept, every pupil in their correct position.

Now, our school was very keen on detail; one of its positive attributes that has made me who I am today. Apart from the pupils being arranged according to their classes, they were also arranged according to height. Taabu happened to be the tallest girl among the Grade 7’s thus expected to be the last girl to exit, followed by the shortest Grade 7 boy, Kadogoo. The difference was usually so noticeable, considering the fact that the girls had already hit puberty, shooting up overnight, while the boys, who usually delay on this milestone, were still quite tiny and cheeky.

On this particular day, I noticed that Rehema, slightly shorter than Taabu, completed the queue, and being the disciplinarian I was, I quickly called to the two young ladies to switch positions before we could proceed with the exit. They hesitated a bit, but after locking eyes with the Senior Teacher who was overseeing this process, they had no choice but to obey. Taabu took a step back as she quickly fumbled with her pullover, to tie it on her waist; which was yet another No! No! at Lavington Primary School! Fear took over and her hands let go of the sweater, leaving her seriously stained yellow dress right in front of Kadogoo’s face! (She was quite tall, and Kadogoo ridiculously short; her waist line was at the same level as Kadogoo’s hairline). Spot on!

Have you ever wanted the earth to open up and swallow you like it did with Korah, all his supporters as well as their households in Numbers 16? That was my wish. Taabu was embarrassed beyond measure, as the boys pointed at her and jeered. Mrs. Pendo and I were speechless! The other girls quickly surrounded Taabu and guided her towards the washrooms. A day I remember with regret.

“And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained to Korah, and all their goods.” Numbers 16:32

Every day we have similar situations surrounding the girl child. The cost of living has risen in a way that parents are barely able to feed their children, let alone cater for their other needs, sanitary towels included. This magazine will not only give you a chance to be a blessing to the teenage girl, but also offer guidance to these girls on how to take care of themselves during this time of the month, as well as how to handle the changes taking place in their bodies, including emotional imbalances. Watch out for our next issue for more exciting stories and give-aways too!

Singapore Masters Swimming Championships 2017

20171007_210159.jpg
On your left is Clare Mungai and I am on the right.

Beyond Superficial.
Timeless Athletes! With Conventional Wisdom.
Aquatic Pedestrians.

Kenya’s Anne Obure and Clare Mungai will be flying the country’s flag in the Singapore Masters swimming Championships planned for October 29.
Obure, 33, will be making her debut in the event and will feature in three events thus 50m freestyle, 50m breast stroke and 100m breast stroke.
Mungai, on the other hand, will feature in 50m back stroke and breast stroke (50 and 100m).
Mungai, 35, is fresh from featuring in another masters event in New Zealand last April, where she posted personal best times in all her events. She said her target this time round will be to improve on her events. “In New Zealand, I also took part in the 50m butterfly but I will not compete in the event this time round,” she said.
_20171007_210446.jpgObure qualified for the event by virtue of her good time and hopes to win some of her categories. Besides, she said she will be hoping to gather enough experience and exposure during the event as she seeks to form a masters team back at home. “It’s unfortunate that Nairobi Amateur Swimming Association (NASA) no longer cover masters events in their calendar and this is proving hard for those of us who have a passion for swimming,’ she noted.
Obure said they are currently operating under ‘Ogelea Africa Swimming Club’ and would like to make it big after their tour of Singapore. She said they will have to cater for their own travel and accommodation but they are hoping to get sponsors in future events. The two will depart on October 25th via Hong Kong in a bid to have some days to acclimatize.

Work – At – Home Management Tips

Physical Location – Set an office space in one of the corners of the house. Ensure that it’s not facing the door/gate. This way you will be able to minimize on unnecessary distractions.

Facilitation – Make sure you have everything you need within arm’s reach: drinking water, remote control, phones, notebook, pen, laptop, etc.

Organization – Prepare a daily schedule and purpose to stick to it, no matter what. Prepare two kinds; one that is a bit flexible and another, strict.

Communication – Alert all your household members regarding your office hours and make them respect that. Ignore them if they try to breach this rule (These include toddlers – ensure there is someone watching them as you work).

Presentation – Dress up! Look good. Take a shower before getting into the office. Put on make up if that’s your thing.

Reorganization – If you have to attend to anything urgent during your office hours, be sure to make up for the time lost before the next day (if possible) thus avoiding procrastination.

Relaxation – DO NOT exceed your working hours! Overworking is the beginning of your downfall. Take a break whenever you feel you need one (Without allowing indiscipline to creep in). This includes napping as often as possible.

Time Allocation – Like prep and elementary school, break your day into sessons. Here’s an example:

  • 0800hrs – 0900hrs Quiet Time. You may play soft music at the background even as you work.
  • 0900hrs – 1000hrs Recap of the previous day’s tasks.
  • 1000hrs – 1115hrs A start on the current day’s tasks.
  • 1115hrs – 1130hrs Tea/Water break. Roam around the house/compound, checking whether there’s lunch for the home dwellers, making informal calls, etc.
  • 1130hrs – 1400hrs Serious work, formal calls, online research, etc.
  • 1400hrs – 1430hrs Lunch Break (Remember to keep it healthy).
  • 1430hrs – 1700hrs Work, work, work, with lots of 10 minute strolls/naps, ensuring the day’s tasks are completed satisfactorily.

If you’re yet to work on your discipline, set alarms on your phone as well as setting your machine to sleep for the times you’re supposed to be offline. Ensure you take a jog/walk/gym session after the sun goes down. Have a cool down thereafter with family, visit a neighbour, dash to the store, etc. If you’re a night person, get back to your machine after dinner (without an agenda) and let your imagination guide you. If you’re a morning person, get to bed by 2100hrs and wake up earlier than your office hours so as to have time for your day dreaming session.

The most important attribute to have for you to be a successful home worker is discipline! In short, the moment your schedule begins, your house automatically becomes the office you’d have gone to if you weren’t working from home.

Be your own supervisor; Be a stress free supervisee!

That Taut Feeling

Dense Thoughts, Tough Questions,
Not A Coincidence But A Joyous Launch.

It’s the 28th day of the month. This date is synonymous to bill-payments-reminder-day. You are woken up in the morning by a preset alarm on your mobile phone that reads ‘to pay mortgage’. You begin the day by spending some Quiet Time in prayer, but there’s this continuous annoying beep that interrupts your soaking; it’s the noise made by the electricity token machine when your units are about to run out.

Before you’re done, the door bell rings. Usually you do not receive any visitors early in the morning but since the water company realized that most guys leave their houses early so as to beat the traffic jam, they decided to be sending their agents much earlier; that they may register the readings on the water meters. This is a sign of an e-bill about to be sent to you.

You proceed to the shower, just to be stopped midway by your House Manager informing you that she’s not able to prepare your Spanish omelette just as you like it because the gas is finished; your child tagging on you, reminding you of the school trip you’re yet to make payments for! This is where you gasp out loud, ‘I’m finished!’ No, you’re not. Stay calm, breath in, breath out.

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

Aha! There goes a timely Word from the Holy Spirit. He’s brought you back to a stable mindset. Your focus has now been redirected to the right place. He says to you, “Consider it nothing but Joy, …whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], Lacking In Nothing.” James 1:2-4 [AMP].

Now that you know that you lack nothing, you’re ready to face the day and everything that comes with it. The joy you have chosen to consider, becomes your StrengthNehemiah 8:10. The strength enables you to:

There you go! All you need to do is shift the focus from the nagging need and towards the All Sufficient One. Spend your time giving thanks for everything He has done and is continuing to do, as opposed to grumbling over the pending tasks. Keep reminding yourself over and over again that, furthermore, you are not yours, but His.

You are God’s responsibility,
The apple of His Eye;
You are God’s point of unity,
Where all that you need lies.

The aim of things all happening at the same time is not to overwhelm you but to remind you that in this world, you cannot make it without God – John 15:4-5.

Prayer: Father, I thank you for your strength that comes to replace this taut feeling with unfathomable strength from You by the Power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

An Audience Of One

His Presence Never Tentative.
I Keep My Focus On My Superhero.

He watches me as I wake up. You see, He already knew that I’d make it to see this day. In fact, He already knows what’s in store for today. Isn’t this reason enough for me to begin my day by spending time with Him? Curious AnneObure would love to sneak a peek into the day’s events, that way, know her lines and follow the script. Only my audience of One can tell me the future before it even happens. Everything He plans will come to pass, for He does whatever He wishes. [Isaiah 46:10 – NLT].

Daily I begin a new slate. Last night before I slept, He reminded me of all the things I was to repent of. This was not easy, considering I was still mad over some.  He said to me, ‘Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Do not let the sun go down on your anger, for this will give a foothold to the devil’ [Ephesians 4:26]. In obedience, I was able to literally have a good night sleep. No nightmares manifested because the devil had nothing on me; neither foot nor toe. That’s why it is easy comprehending His mercies this morning, knowing that my audience of One helped me empty my trash can before I slept.

I begin by acknowledging the fact that:

  • I am not my own. [Acts 20:24]
  • I am not alone. [Isaiah 41:10]
  • The Battle is His. [2 Chronicles 20:15]
  • Victory in mine. [1 Corinthians 15:57]

Thereafter, I lean closer, that I may hear His voice. He says, “My child, I AM bigger than what people say. I AM The Alpha and The Omega; The Beginning and The End. None can compare to Me. Do not put your trust in man [Isaiah 2:22]. If you do, you will fall. However, trust in Me and you will be safe [Proverbs 29:25]. Do you know why you are alive this day? So that you may worship Me [Psalm 146:2].

He goes on by saying, “You are beside Me as a master workman; you are daily My delight. You rejoice before Me and I rejoice in the world, My earth, having My delight in you. [Proverbs 8:30–31] Come, let us prepare today’s work plan. Let us reason together [Isaiah 1:18]. Yesterday we talked about you being A Jack Of All Trades And A Master Of All, as long as you follow My lead. Today’s agenda is as follows:

  • Drive to town. While on the highway, pray for safety; for yourself and for your nation.
  • Once you get to the office, spend some time meeting and greeting your colleagues. Find out if they have any troubling issues and direct them to Me. Share some of your victories with them. That way they will receive the comfort I shared with you and their hearts will be encouraged.
  • Get down to work. Whatever you do, work at it will all of your heart, as though you are working for Me and not for your boss [Colossians 3:23].
  • During your lunch hour, let’s catch up, just in case there were one or two things we missed out in our morning glory. We could take a walk by the garden behind your office as you receive some fresh air and stretch your limbs.
  • Once back from your lunch break, finalize on work so that you do not procrastinate anything. Accomplish all that you can today. We shall talk about tomorrow when it comes [Matthew 6:34]. Feel free to consult with me whenever and wherever you need advice. [Jeremiah 33:3]
  • On your way back home, pass by the market and buy some food for your neighbour. She’s a bit low on cash and could do with some bread. [Isaiah 58:10]
  • When you get back home, relax with the members of your household. Find out how their day was. Share yours with them too. If possible, call a few friends over for tea and fellowship with them. Where two or three of you are gathered in My Name, I’ll be present [Matthew 18:20].

Once you have fed, cleaned up and are ready to end the day, come and tell Me how you feel. Share with Me the challenges you faced. Bring your burdens to Me because I care about you [1 Peter 5:7]. Don’t allow yourself to worry over anything. Come and tell Me what you need, as you thank Me for all that I have done today [Philippians 4:6].”

Wow! It’s as simple as that. This walk is doable. One day at a time. All we need to do is to focus on one thing: An Audience Of One.

Music Corner:

I want to believe that my Superhero is yours too. If not, would you like to meet Him? If the answer is yes, I invite you to say this simple prayer: Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

A Jack of All Trades And A Master of All!

A Glorious Discovery!
My Roots.
Am I a doctor? No. I’m more than one. Every time I meet the sick, I get the urge to lay my hands on them and through my obedience, Christ heals them.

“…they shall lay hands upon the sick, and they shall be healed.” Mark 16:18b

Am I a teacher? No. I’m more than one. Spending time reading the Word and in fellowship with God makes me wiser and wiser thus able to impart knowledge to others.

“The Law of the LORD is perfect, restoring life. The testimony of the LORD is steadfast, making foolish people wise.” Psalm 19:7 – ISV

Am I a linguist? No. I’m more than one. The moment I allowed the Holy Spirit to fill me, I began to speak in new languages.

“These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.” Mark 16:17 – NLT.

Am I a heckler? No. I’m more than one. When I Think about the Lord, How He saved me, how He raised me, How He filled me, with the Holy Ghost. How He healed me, to the uttermost, makes me wanna Shout! Hallelujah! (Hillsong United – When I Think About The Lord)

Am I a dancer? No. I’m more than one. God has turned my mourning into dancing. He has lifted my sorrows.

“You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,” Psalm 30:11 – NLT.

Am I an electrician? No, I am more than one. I not only give solutions to power failure problems, but supply the whole earth with electricity!

I am the Light of the world; Like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 – NLT.

Am I an aquatic centre? No. I’m more than one. I flood the Nations with my overflow that’s brought about by my belief in Jesus Christ.

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” John 7:38 – NASB.

Am I a mason? No. I’m more than one. As I encourage others, I am building them up.

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 – ESV.

Am I a magician? Far from it! I’m more than one. Everything I touch, prospers; Everything I set out to do, as led by the Holy Spirit, excels.

“The LORD your God will make you abundantly prosperous in all the work of your hand,… For the LORD will again take delight in prospering you, as he took delight in your fathers,” Deuteronomy 30:9 – ESV.

Who am I? A believer! All I have to do is believe. I believe in God the Father, I believe in God the Son, I believe in God the Holy Spirit. All that’s needed is a partnership between God and I. Nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37

Believe and you will receive,

Believe and He will reveal Himself to you;

Believe and you will achieve,

All that He has already purposed in you.

Only Believe!

Prayer: Lord, Thank You for enabling me to be all that I ever want to be. Father, help my unbelief. This I ask in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ and by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Music Corner: 

Are you a believer? If not, I invite you to say this simple prayer: Dear God,

The Peculiar Artist

The Greatest Innovations in the World!
Spectacular!
…A Peculiar People From Above.

“What are you doing?” I asked as he keenly painted very tiny black dots within a red figure. He had just switched from a big brush to a smaller one. This man lived in a house located way above other houses, what you could term as top floor or better still, an attic.

Slowly but surely, the artist completed his drawing and out popped a ladybird, one so beautiful and full of life. It lingered a bit, and finally flew away. You should have seen the look on my face! Never in my thirty something years on planet earth had I witnessed anything close to this: simply unbelievable!

“Then I was beside Him, as a master workman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him” Proverbs 8:30 (NASB)

A new sheet was open. This time the theme was black and white, as opposed to the previous colored painting. The artist drew the back side of a man in a split of a second! He was done even before he began. While I still marveled at his immeasurable speed, he embarked on inserting trendy detail on this man’s haircut. Wow! You should have seen how much concentration he put on every stroke, every dot, every cut. As soon as he was done with this magnificent piece, the drawing came to life! Without turning to face us, the figure walked away, down an alley and round the bend. I was concerned, The artist wasn’t.

Face Turned Away.jpg

The artist then casually stood and asked me to follow him.

“Where are we going?” I asked. “Are you not going to teach me more?”

He answered, “It’s now time to rest. Follow me and I will teach you my kind of rest.”

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”….. “And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.” (Genesis 1:26; 2:2)

We left the studio, down a long flight of stairs and onto a road, kinda like a street within an estate. We came to this ordinary looking shack and a huge guy opened for us the door. Although we didn’t enter but conversed with him at his patio, I could tell that these two had a good relationship; a father – son relationship. The resemblance was also quite evident: very polished.

Father asked son, “How do you manage to remain composed, knowing that your little brother lives on the ground floor of your building, in the assembly of thugs, yet you still come to intercede on his behalf?”

“Who is the one condemning? For it is Christ Jesus, the one having died, now rather having been raised up, who is also at the right hand of God, and who is interceding for us.” Romans 8:34.

The artist began to cry as he was deeply moved. Immediately, another look – alike appeared, this time round, a lady. She embraced him for a very long time, leaving me in an awkward position. All I wondered was how I could help this family reconcile with their son, brother, friend. That is when I woke up! A dream so real, I can still see, hear, feel, smell and touch the encounter.

Here’s The Key:

Dream Analogy Reality
Canvas Universe
Attic Heaven
Ground Floor Earth
Artist/Son God The Word – Jesus Christ
Father God the Father
Lady God The Holy Spirit
Little Brother Lost Man
Me Saved Man

Prayer: Father, thank You for the clear reminder. Help us Oh Lord not to come to You with questions on why the world is the way it is, but rather teach us Your kind of rest. Forgive us for the times we have walked away from You after receiving our blessings. Teach us to walk in Your ways. As we are on earth, may we learn to do only the things that we see You do in heaven. Jesus we thank You for continuously interceding for us. You have remained faithful to us even after we abandoned your teachings (The Word). Holy Spirit, without You we cannot make it. You have been our Comforter (2 Cor 1:4), wiping our tears and holding us close. Thank You for leading us to the Artist. Thank You for the dreams and visions. Thank You for the spiritual gifts in whole. Here we are, ready to learn Your kind of rest. Father Lead us in the Name of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior and by the Power of the Holy Spirit we pray and believe, Amen.

“For if you return to the LORD, your brothers and your sons will find compassion before those who led them captive and will return to this land. For the LORD your God is gracious and compassionate, and will not turn His face away from you if you return to Him.” (2 Chronicles 30:9)

Kenya had turned away from God and followed after the heathens round about them. Because of this, the Lord’s voice was silenced, the remnants were scattered abroad as Kenya was not in a position to receive the Word of God and judgement was set.

Glory be to God for He gathered us to repent on behalf of the Land, that His glory may return to us. He has indeed accepted our sacrifice and this is what the Lord is now saying to Kenya:

….Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come…..I will even gather you (remnants of Kenya) from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I’ll give you the land… (Kenya). And they shall come and take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from there. And I’ll give them one heart, and I’ll put a new Spirit within you; and I’ll take the stony heart (tribalism and pagan practices) out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh (righteousness and brotherly Love): That they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:16-20)

Brethren we repented and the Lord heard our sincere cry and saved us from the judgement that was upon this Land. It is now our responsibility as the remnant:

  • To propagate the Spirit of oneness.
  • To manifest brotherly Love.
  • To pray unbiased.
  • To occupy.

As we continue praying for Kenya, let us remember that the rerun is just but a very small prayer item as compared to God’s bigger picture. He has entrusted us with souls. The time has now come for Restitution!

Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire

Visceral Thoughts.
The Element – FIRE!

While in the frying pan, I had limited growth. The boundaries determined how far I could stretch. Here in the FIRE, I am free to expand, as long as the flames within me keep burning.

While in the frying pan, I received input from all corners, more like spices that helped season my life to bring out the taste. Here in the FIRE, I am responsible for the aroma that emanates from my life, depending on the type of wood I select for the purposes of ensuring that the flames within me remain burning.

In the frying pan there was regulation of heat. I was protected from direct burns and scalds. Here in the FIRE I am thoroughly roasted into the expulsion of all the chaff and unwanted stuff.

In the frying pan I lay flat, awaiting to be tossed and turned by every willing cook. Here in the FIRE I have no choice but to create my own motions, testing the sources of heat and selecting only the ones that keep the flames within me burning.

The frying pan was kinda dull; black in color.

The FIRE glows…brighter as the flame grows.

(The frying pan denotes Anne in control of her life while the FIRE denotes the Lion of Judah in control of Anne’s life.)

consuming-fire-white-12-29-web

In both I burn; the former with fear while the latter in gear … towards the deep things of God.

This is a new season; one of personal responsibility, freedom, growth and maturity. One of total reliance in God, the real walk of faith.

Am I scared? A bit.

Am I worried? Not at all!

Am I alone? Far from it.

Am I covered? Over all!

Source of Inspiration For This Post: We recently moved houses; from a shared one and into our own. Time to brave the tides of life, with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit by our side.

Prayer: Lord, Thank You for new beginnings. You are the fire burning in us. Your flame is all we need. Holy Spirit, help our unbelief in this walk of faith. Father, may we always look on You as our main Supplier of everything we need. All glory and honor unto You, now and always, giving thanks through the Mighty Name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Easter Prayer & Awakening Conference 2018 – Kenya

Come & Congregate in God’s Glory!
Open Gates. Real Satisfaction.
Captivating & Uncompromising.
A Wondrous Season!

The Kingdom of God is looking for people to fill the following positions:

  • Doctors

Are you a qualified doctor? If so, we will need you to confirm the healing that will be occurring in this restitution period that we are getting into. Your previous experience in prevention and cure is an added advantage since it will help you realize that our God is bigger than any disease. Carry your HIV test kits, cancer screening kits, scanners and any other equipment you use on a daily basis. Real Satisfaction comes from declaring that your patient is free from all diseases forever more. The Latter Rain is here!

Be patient therefore, brothers, to the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. James 5:7

  • Farmers

Are you good with different types of soils? If so, we are ready to sow and therefore need your expertise on how to go about it. The ground is ready. we are expecting a humongous harvest. Come teach us on how to care for the seedlings as well as the mature fruit. You need not carry any fertilizers for the Lord has sent a River from Heaven; in it is everything needed for a ripe harvest. Real Satisfaction comes from erecting extra barns after the harvest exceeds your expectations. This is what God means when He says our cups will run over. The Latter Rain is here!

  • Bankers

Are you a qualified accountant? If so, we definitely need your services. The God who owns cattle on a thousand hills (Psalms 50:10) is pouring a blessing we cannot contain (Malachi 3:10)! Your previous experience with various currencies will be highly appreciated since these monies are coming from different Nations thus the need for your knowledge on forex matters. Ensure you come with the latest digital equipment to avoid software being overloaded by numbers. Real Satisfaction comes from running accounts that keep growing rather than those which have been stuck on minimum balance year in year out. The Latter Rain is here!

  • Investors

Are you a risk taker? If so, we welcome you on board! This new wave is bigger than our little minds can fathom (1 Corinthians 2:9). Come and challenge as on the investments we need to plug into. We have been commanded to give, to save, to sow, to build, to test God and see the outcome. We need your knowledge on real estate, shares, market trends, etc. The more we become channels of these blessings rather than hoarders, the more the blessings will keep coming. Our jurisdiction is the Kingdom of God. We will learn from you as you learn from us. Real satisfaction comes from seeing how investing in God’s agenda has sure returns. It never goes bad. The Latter Rain is here!

Acts-20-35-01-01.png

  • Teachers

Are you a trained tutor? If so, we welcome you to the School of the Spirit! God is unleashing heavenly modules at an alarming rate! We need your expertise on creating lesson plans so that we may be able to reach out to the world. Come with an open mind. This wisdom is not like the wisdom of men. Prepare for a paradigm shift! Follow us as we follow Christ. Be prepared to work since this syllabus is revised on a daily basis. Please remember to carry your full learning kit, for you will be required to translate these messages into notes, diagrams, charts, thus making it comprehensible. Real satisfaction is when your class finally graduates and everyone has excelled with flying colors. The Latter Rain is here!

  • Cleaners

Are you a sweeper, cleaner, domestic worker? If so, we have positions for you too! The Glory of God is coming! The angels of revival are coming with healing on their wings! As we lay hands on the sick, growths will begin to fall off. Skin diseases will begin to peel off. Plastic and metallic appendages will drop as new legs and hands grow. Tumors will roll out of bodies and cancers will be dried up. You will be required to sweep the floors and gather all the ‘dirt’ the devil had put on man. Carry your full cleaning kit but leave out air fresheners because the fragrance of heaven will be hovering all around. Real Satisfaction is when you know the ‘dirt’ you’re sweeping out has come as a result of someone’s supernatural encounter with the Hand of God. The Latter Rain is here!

  • Counselors

Are you a qualified hope giver? If so, you don’t wanna miss this move! We specifically need you to apply for this position because we want you to see your patients coming out of depression, oppression, suppression, and all the sessions you’ve had to counsel them. Does this render you jobless? No! You will now be required to confirm that their total well being is complete. No more sorrow, no more tears, no more heartache. You may design graduation certificates for them. Come ready to work long shifts because the queue for those receiving their letters of completion from worldly troubles will be longer than that of voters on the election day. Real Satisfaction is when you do not have to sit through another session where you have to ask your patient, ‘How does that make you feel?’ The Latter Rain is here!

  • Musicians

Are you good at writing music? If so, we need your knowledge on staff notation. We’ve got lots of songs downloaded into our spirits every time we worship God. We need you to document this for generations to come. Carry all the instruments you can play, although some of the sounds we hear in our heads have not yet been played on planet earth. Real Satisfaction is when you hear a tune that has been composed; one that neither goes off nor flat. God is the Composer and He loves music with a passion. The Latter Rain is here!

Requirements: 

First and foremost, you need to have experienced the Former Rain (Allowing Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of your life). Secondly, you need to welcome the Holy Spirit into your life. You were born spirit, soul and body. After salvation, you became spirit, soul and SANCTUARY (Pastor Robert Kayanja). This means that The Holy Spirit lives in you. This is mind blowing! Nothing you do should fail. Thirdly, yield yourself to the leading of your new found Friend, Teacher, Doctor, Sower, Counselor, Cleanser, Musician, Investor, Banker. That way you are automatically qualified to fill all the above vacant positions! Ain’t this Real Satisfaction?

Prayer: Father, I am willing to be all that You have purposed in me. This way I will be fully representing Your Kingdom. Holy Spirit I totally yield to You. Guide me, help my unbelief, I wonna be more like Jesus Christ. Daily I take up my cross and follow You. I want to see Heaven here on earth. I’m desperate for this new move. This is my desire. Thank You for allowing me to partner with You. Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. All Glory and Honor unto Your Mighty Name, trusting and believing in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

So should I say ‘We’re Hiring’ or ‘We’re Highering – Going up higher and higher; away from the world and towards heaven!’

Main Feature – 77 Days Of Glory: There’s a Mighty Move of God happening in Uganda. People are giving their lives to Jesus Christ in thousands. HIV, Cancer, Sickle Cell, diabetes, ulcers, etc healing on a daily basis. Many have left their wheelchairs, crutches and braces after miraculously rising up and walking. Creative miracles just as the Bible said. Witches and wizards are resigning from their evil trade and surrendering to Christ. I urge you to plug in. I’m in Kenya but able to follow via YouTube (We thank God for Technology). Feel free to do the same. This move has been termed as the 77 Days Of Glory. Good News! This Easter we shall be having a Prayer & Awakening here in Kenya, linked to the Revival In Uganda (See poster below for more details as well as the video that follows. For any inquiries, call +254 726 402 397. You don’t wanna miss this Glorious Visitation. See you there!

Heart To Heart

A Perfect Match!
Plucked Out!
A Magnetic Effect!

It all began when I surrendered my heart to God (Proverbs 23:6). My heart stopped trusting in itself and began to trust in God (Proverbs 3:5) thus plucking out fear and troubles (John 14:27) since it was now being guarded by the peace of God (Philippians 4:7). Like a magnet, my heart began to derive its strength from God and not flesh (Psalms 73:26) through tests and exams set by the Lord (Psalms 26:2). This process involved breaking it, with the intention of drawing it closer to God (Psalms 34:18).

The final result is a pure heart (Psalms 51:10); a blessed heart (Matthew 5:8); a heart not trusting in an idol or swearing by a false god (Psalms 24:4); a heart whose meditation pleases God (Psalms 19:14) by having all its desires in line with God’s delight (Psalms 37:4) through following after the treasures of heaven (Matthew 6:21) and is forever wholly giving thanks unto the Lord and telling of His wonderful deeds (Psalms 9:1).

Action Plan: Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life. (Proverbs 4:23)

Prayer: Father, our hearts intentionally choose to trust wholly in You. We surrender all our heart’s desires, plans, thoughts and everything within us to Your Lordship, that you may guide us, guard us, strengthen us, break us. Lead our desires to be in line with Your delight that we may follow after heavenly treasures, daily meditating on Your Word.  May our hearts respond to You as metal is to magnet. We therefore pluck our hearts from our own control as the magnetic effect takes place. Ours is to thank You for all that You have already done as we tell of Your wonderful deeds to the ends of the earth. Lots of love coming from our hearts to You in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

From Nonbeliever To Unbeliever – Suicidal Act!

Commitment Is Mandatory!

I’m talking about:

  • Confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord over our lives and not living a life greater than His. John 14:12 says, ‘I assure you: The one who believes in Me will also do the works that I do. And he will do even greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.’
  • Giving our lives to Jesus Christ and still acting like our own bosses. Matthew 16:24-25 says, ‘Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.’
  • Not practicing what we preach. Romans 2:21 Says, ‘Well then, if you teach others, why don’t you teach yourself? You tell others not to steal, but do you steal?’
  • Merely surviving instead of thriving. John 10:10 says, ‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’
  • Approaching the Kingdom with a ‘touch-and-go’ mentality. Luke 9:6 says, ‘Then Jesus declared, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and then looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.’
  • Settling for the crumbs falling from the table rather than dining with the Father. Matthew 15:27 says, ‘And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.’ 
  • Living a defeated life yet Christ already paid the price on the cross. John 16:33 says, ‘I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.’
  • Crying for revival and not daring to live a revived life. Psalms 119:93 says, ‘I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have revived me.’
  • Bombarding heaven with our earthly needs and not inquiring of the Lord of His purposes. Daniel Henderson says, ‘If you seek God’s hand, you will miss His face.  If you seek His face, you will get His hand also.’ The Bible says in Matthew 6:33, ‘But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these. things shall be added unto you.’

In short, let us set our minds on things above, and not earthly things (Colossians 3:2) for that’s where our help comes from (Psalm 121:1). We ask ourselves why there is so much suffering in the world. Well, the answer lies in us: We’ve got to allow God to work in us and through us, because He has given us the authority to rule and reign. (Luke 10:19; Mark 6:13; Matthew 10:8). Do not give the devil an opportunity (Ephesians 4:27).

Begin to live the God – ordained life! We have all it takes to do what Jesus Christ did and much more. 1 Corinthians 2:16: We have the mind of Christ! Romans 8:9: The Spirit of God dwells in us! Wow! That summarizes it all.

Prayer: Father we need your help. Your Word says everything is possible for one who believes. We therefore pray, we do believe; help us overcome our unbelief. We are your ambassadors here on earth. May we live up to our status as Kingdom citizens in Jesus Name, Amen.

The Exchange Programme

Total Relief!

A New Creature.

When I was in High School there used to be an Exchange Programme whereby the two top scorers in Form Three got a chance to visit the United States of America as two Americans came to Kenya and schooled with us during this season. Oh how we had a steep competition as we all yearned to travel overseas, knowing that only 2 out of 200 would ultimately enjoy this opportunity.

In those days there was no internet to show us how America looked like. We would wait for the two who’d be coming from there and befriending them would be our number one goal, with the objective of learning all that we possibly could about this foreign land. They dressed differently, talked with a peculiar accent and even looked different. Everything they did was our interpretation of how America was like. On the other hand, they were so fascinated with Africa! Most of them went through serious culture shock and after a few days were crying to return to America, where everything seemed easy and enjoyable.

This can be compared to Jesus’ visit to planet earth. He came from heaven to earth, to show us the Way. He came to ultimately redeem us from sin and death by dying on our behalf. He came with the look of heaven, dressed in the Full Armor of God and speaking a heavenly language; ready to demonstrate to us how we ought to live and show us where we belong. In short, He is our Exchange Programme; One to take our part and we, His; The Divine Exchange. He says:

  • I died for you that you might live with me (1 Thessalonians 5:10)
  • Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
  • I give beauty for ashes, strength  for fear, gladness for mourning and peace  for despair (Isaiah 61:3)
  • Come now, and let us reason together… though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
  • I have turned your mourning  into dancing; I have taken off your sackcloth and clothed you with joy (Psalms 30:11)
  • Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. (Joel 3:10)
  • Give, and you will receive… (Luke 6:38)
  • I have called you out of darkness and into My marvelous Light. (1 Peter 2:9)
  • Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Another illustration of this Divine Exchange is seen through the Sermon on The Mount (Matthew 5:3 – 12):

Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.“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.

From 1 Corinthians 11:29, I can boldly say that after discerning the Body of Christ and accepting that He died on the cross and rose again, every time we partake of the Holy Communion, we are revived (as opposed to judgement), we are strengthened and healed (as opposed to weak and sick) and we receive life (as opposed to falling asleep – dying).

Prayer: Here we are Father, approaching You in the Name of Jesus Christ and by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Everyday we receive something new from You as we surrender our burdens at the foot of the Cross. We’re transformed into Your likeness (2 Cor 3:18) as we gaze upon You. We shall no longer hide from You when we need help, knowing that our help only comes from You. Thank You Lord for drawing us to Yourself. We desire to know You more; to drink from the River that never runs dry. You are the God of Love and this is exactly what we need since Love conquers all! (1 Peter 4:8). Amen!

Warfare Above Welfare!

Put On God’s Armor!

Yesterday morning I went into prayer and I had a vision. Kind of like a trance within a vision. Here goes:

My sisters and I were sitting in a certain living room that was L-shaped and very squeezed. The seats were old fashioned, not spongy but lots of wooden parts showing. There was a wall unit at the L interception and it had a small TV in it. We were getting ready to watch a movie which we were so eager to start. The TV’s reception was not colored but black and white. When the first scene of the movie came, I began feeling uncomfortable (This happens a lot when I’m about to travel in the Spirit. The physical becomes heavy) God began to whisper to me ‘Come I show you something’. I told God to take me up quickly (I’m always so excited when this happens because I know it’s an open portal).

I begin to pray in tongues and watch as my spirit man leaves my body and I begin to go up at lightening speed. All this time I was so excited because I knew we were going to the 3rd heaven and out of experience it’s the greatest place to be. But shock on me! We get to the 2nd heaven (outer space) and God leaves me there. I am still moving but not as fast. I could see the stars and the earth. Such a spectacular view that leaves you gazing with your mouth open. Then I spot this huge sharp arrow going towards earth at tremendous speed. Fear fills me up and I scream so loud! I hear two sharp clap-like noises as it tears into planet earth. Then I remember where we all are, watching a movie. I yearn to proceed with my journey to the 3rd heaven but I feel a need to go back and warn my sisters of the coming doom.

Immediately I am back into my body but now I’m in kneeling position (Remember this is still in the vision, not physical). I find all of us asleep deeply and snoring. My youngest sister has now moved from her single seat to the three seater I was occupying. Then the vision ends. (This is from 8.12 am to about 9.45 am)

Oh! What a wake up call to us, the bride of Christ. We’re in battle brethren. Take up your weapons of war and fervently advance this Kingdom of God. It is okay to watch a movie and very okay to sleep. In fact God gives sweet sleep to His beloved (Psalms 127:2). However, it is not okay to be caught unawares. There’s a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).

  • Let’s not continue with business as usual.
  • Let’s knock on heaven’s doors with prayer and supplication;
  • Let’s stand in the gap on behalf of the world;
  • Let’s be a voice of hope to the lost;
  • Let’s be somewhere working for the Lord (representing the Kingdom everywhere we go and in everything we do);

Prayer: Lord, as we await Your return, may we not get too comfortable with life’s issues that we forget our purpose on earth. Help us to know the times and seasons that we are in. We yield to Your voice as you keenly lead us in our daily walk and assignments. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

The Day of The Lord

Crisp, Clear and Concise.
The Final Trumpet.
Greatest Reprieve!
Closer To The End of The Earth.

Let’s begin by summarizing the 3 steps before eternity checks in:

  1. Creation: It all began with the creation story. Adam was created by God solely for the purpose of him worshiping God. He used to commune with God face to face. The idea was for him to fill the earth with the likes of him and his beloved wife  Eve. Unfortunately the devil managed to trick him (as well as his wife) and sin checked in, giving birth to death. They could no longer appear before God as they used to. Man lost authority over the earth to the devil. Sin brought a curse into the world. Every one born of Adam was therefore born with this decaying nature, destined to suffer and ultimately die.
  2. Redemption: Thanks be to God for He already had a plan (He always does). God knows the end from the beginning. He is the Alpha and the Omega. Knowing that everyone born of man could not save man from this eternal death, He sent Jesus Christ, born of His Spirit, blameless in all His ways, to save the world. That is why Jesus had to be born of a virgin: so that He doesn’t possess the blood of man, which is already defiled. Did you know that in the fetus’ blood does not mix with it’s mother’s blood? Read more on this here. He came and died, went to hell and won back the keys to life. He did it all for you and I. Hell was never created for any man to occupy. The Holy Spirit came after Jesus returned to the Father so that He may guide us into all Truth – showing us how to become more like Jesus, that we may show the world the Word that came to set us (them) free.
  3. Salvation: God created us with self will. He calls us, by His Spirit, to His own and gives us the final choice to make. Salvation undid the curse and brought a blessing into the world. The only way to enter the Kingdom of God once again is through accepting the Lordship of Christ: allowing the blood of Jesus to wash away our sins and His death to speak for us, that we may attain eternal life – a place with no disease, no sorrow, no war, no sadness, no devils, no heartache. A place we shall forever worship our Father and our God.

The day of the Lord is near: a day when Jesus, our groom, is coming for us, His bride, to forever dwell with Him in eternity. This day is drawing nearer and nearer with every passing day. Isaiah Chapter 13 describes this day vividly (I hope to come up with a movie on it one day). Let me summarize it: God has prepared His army by placing His eternal purpose in all who have accepted His call. By prayer, fasting, witnessing and living a God – Centred life, we advance the kingdom of God, and He in turn draws the world to Himself. Why so? Because this earth is passing away. Scientists have proven that the ozone is depleting, the water bodies are exceeding their boundaries, earthquakes are coming, etc. In short, creation is groaning for the manifestation of the Sons of God. (Romans 8:19). Great destruction is coming and it will consume every fallen thing that will be on earth then. The earth will be destroyed and a new heaven and a new earth will arise. Should we panic? Not at all! God’s got us covered.

Action Plan:

  • Let us walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:15-16)
  • Let us speak boldly of the Gospel of Christ because it is the only power that can overcome the world. (Romans 1:16)
  • Let us go boldly to the ends of the earth because God is going with us and is giving us victory (Deuteronomy 20:4)
  • Let us do all that the Father tells us to do because everything works together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called by His name (Romans 8:28)
  • Let us gather together to pray and fast because it is the Lord mobilizing an army for war (Isaiah 13:4)
  • Let us remember to give God all the glory because He is the One causing us to triumph in His Name as we spread His Word – Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 2:14)

Prayer:

Thank you Lord for creating us, Thank You Lord for redeeming the world and saving us from death and into eternal life. Thank You for empowering us for the calling You have appointed us for. Thank You Holy Spirit for revealing Christ to us and guiding us in every step that we take. Lord You said, ‘Occupy till I come’. May our occupation be a fruitful one: winning souls, prospering in body and in soul, overcoming the evil one, doing what we see our Father in heaven do and making use of each and every resource you have made available to us, including social media.  I speak victory all round. I speak brotherly Love. I speak divine health. I speak salvation to every creature. I speak in the Name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Happy Mother’s Day

God’s Finalists!

From Left To Right: Bella Obure, Eunice Obure, Jedidah Obure (Mommy) and AnneObure.

Bella: You came into this world two years after I did but overtook me in the motherhood field. I speak God’s blessings over your princess and princes, always giving thanks to God for their existence. Seek God for guidance and direction for each of them, that they may fulfill God’s call over their lives. Happy Mother’s Day Kid Sis.

Eunice: You mothered me even before you were old enough to bring forth your own. I swore to thoroughly beat your children as payback for the pinches and punches I received when Dad and Mom left me in your care. You now have one gorgeous queen, a little adorable princess and the most handsome prince I’ve ever seen. God has smiled on you. He handpicked you for these bundles of joy and can therefore trust you with their lives. Always inquire from Him before making decisions pertaining to them for He never disappoints. Happy Mother’s Day Big Sis.

Mommy: You nurtured me, trained me, took me to school but one thing I’m forever grateful for is the fact that you and Dad introduced God the Father to me. You have been there for us in many ways. You are still there for me in an unspeakable measure. You are not perfect for sure, but the greatest we know. My prayer is that you shall always prosper in everything that you set to do and live to see your children’s, children’s children. May the Lord always be your motivation. Happy Mother’s Day Dear Mom.

Kid Sis (1).jpg

Chichi Obure (Pictured Above): I prophesy over you lots and lots of children, a number equivalent to your heart’s desire. You shall be ready for them when they come and God will download to you their destinies in advance. Thank you for your vote of confidence to us in regards to motherhood. The same is your portion in Jesus Name. I could not leave you out on this day dear Patricia; my look-a-like. You are blessed and highly favored. Happy Mother’s Day Smallest Sis.

Prayer Corner: Lord I present each and every one of these ladies to You this morning: in thanksgiving for what You are doing in their lives (and mine too). I lack words that can fully describe how grateful I am for them. Reveal Yourself more and more to us as we seek Your face. Our children are blessed (including those we’re yet to conceive that you already know). We celebrate You as the Maker of Mothers this day, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Love’s Pursuit

The Greatest Pursuit.
Creation Reflecting The Creator.
Nature is one of God’s beautiful creations. Through nature, God is able to teach us, speak to us, and provide for us. In many ways has He made Himself known to man.

‘For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.’ Romans 1:20 (NLT).

Take a look at everything around you. Begin with the birds and examine their flight. Go to the fish and marvel at their existence. Proceed to the ecosystem and try figuring it out. Conclude with your precious life. He knew you even before you were conceived. That’s why He pursues you; to guide you on how to go about occupying this amazing earth.

Just ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish in the sea speak to you.…. For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being.’ – Job 12:7-10 (NLT).

It’s amazing to learn that amidst all these glorious and magnificent creations of God, you and I form the center of His Love. You are the apple of His eye.

‘For thus says the LORD of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.’ – Zechariah 2:8.

Prayer Corner: Lord, thank You for loving us as You do, that You did not wait for us to draw nigh to You, but You showed Yourself in frail humanity; that You did not wait for us to cry out to You, but You Let us hear Your voice calling us. (Forever Grateful – Song By Juanita Bynum).

Thank You for stepping down, that we may step up,

Thank You for laying down, that we may be raised up;

Thank You for coming down, that we may climb up,

Thank you for pursuing Your own, that we may look up.

Hydro Power Plants

Supernatural Discoveries.

Let’s look into the various components:

  1. Dam – this is the most important component of hydroelectric power plant. The dam is built on a large river that has abundant quantity of water throughout the year. It should be built at a location where the height of the river is sufficient to get the maximum possible potential energy from water.
  2. Water Reservoir – This is the place behind the dam where water is stored. The water in the reservoir is located higher than the rest of the dam structure. The higher the height of water, the more its potential energy. The high position of water in the reservoir also enables it to move downwards effortlessly. This also helps to increase the overall potential energy of water, which helps ultimately produce more electricity in the power generation unit.
  3. Intake or Control Gates – These are the gates built on the inside of the dam. The water from reservoir is released and controlled through these gates. These are called inlet gates because water enters the power generation unit through these gates.
  4. The Penstock – this is the long pipe or the shaft that carries the water flowing from the reservoir towards the power generation unit, comprised of the turbines and generator.
  5. Water Turbines – When water falls on the blades of the turbine the kinetic and potential energy of water is converted into the rotational motion of the blades of the turbine. The rotating blades causes the shaft of the turbine to also rotate.
  6. Generators – Here is where the electricity is produced. The shaft of the water turbine rotates in the generator, which produces alternating current in the coils of the generator. It is the rotation of the shaft inside the generator that produces magnetic field which is converted into electricity by electromagnetic field induction. Thus in hydroelectricity power plants potential energy of water is converted into electricity. Info courtesy of Brighthub Engineering

Hydroelectric Dam

This is exactly what happens when we pray using a heavenly language.

  • The Dam is the Spirit of God in us. He is all knowing and comes into our spirit to enrich our reservoir.
  • The reservoir is the total amount of knowledge we have regarding God and His purposes in our lives. This is formed when we read the Word of God and listen to His teachings. The more knowledge we have from God, the easier it is to receive from His Spirit.
  • The control gates are our mouths. The moment we open our mouths in supernatural prayer, we allow the Spirit of God to speak mysteries through us. These discoveries enter the generator through the control gate and cause an edification process.
  • The penstock is the length of time we dedicate in prayer using the heavenly language. The longer the session, the more the generation of heavenly mysteries.
  • The Turbines are our tongues. As we open the gates and allow our tongues to move in faith, the Spirit of God takes control and is able to physically download the heavenly solutions to earthly problems.
  • Finally, the generator is our brain. The tongue’s rotation causes the transmission of spiritual messages to the brain, allowing the brain to give instructions to the various body parts on what is expected for the pending need. These instructions are accurate electric currents that have been directly released from heaven, thus the results are always victorious.

The outcome of this activity (praying in God’s language) is miracles, healing, restoration, empowerment, and every good thing that the Lord has kept for us. This is what we mean by heaven on earth.

Benefits of Praying in the Language of Heaven:

  • It activates the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation.
  • It empowers you for your calling.
  • It Causes Healing of your brain and mind.
  • It prays out your fears, anxiety and traumas.
  • It enables you to tap into the treasures within you.
  • It’s God’s language, thus you are able to talk to Him directly and accurately.

‘But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Pray in the Holy Spirit.’Jude 20.

On A Lighter Note: There are many reasons why my life still has some form of darkness: could it be that my reservoir level (knowledge of God) needs to be raised? Could it be that the length of time spent in prayer (penstock) ain’t long enough? Could it be that my gate (mouth) is shut or my turbine (tongue) is rusty thus causing no transmission to the generator (brain)? In one thing am I confident: That the source of the Dam will never run dry.

I Lost My Mind

I Lost Control. Deeply ImmersedThe Best Option.

It all began with a whisper. A still small voice that kept nudging me to come closer. The more I ignored this voice, the more the voice faded. The more I listened, the louder the voice became and clearer my circumstances. I decided to take a risk and listen. That’s when it all began.
‘And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.’ 1 Kings 19:12.
I named the voice Mr. Know-It-All. Why? you ask. Because he was always so confident that what He had to say was worth listening to. Sometimes He’d invade my thoughts and suggest a parallel. Such times I’d shake Him off since I was still in control, and furthermore, His ideas were outrageous. He never gave up.
‘The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.’ – Psalm 29:3-5.
I decided to do a simple analysis: write down the results of the decisions I made before Mr. Know-It-All checked in and those that He convinced me to make and I took a risk. I was blown away!
  • My mind told me that I’ve got to behave a certain way so as to fit in but Mr. Know-It-All told me that my uniqueness compliments my fitness.
  • My mind told me I’m not good enough for certain positions and cliques but Mr. Know-It-All told me I’m incomparable and qualified to be anything I wanna be.
  • My mind told me I’m alone in this walk and I tired but Mr. Know-It-All told me He’s with me and will never leave; to will and to do, and thereafter, renew my strength.
  • My mind made me accumulate wealth in this temporary chapter but Mr. Know-It-All gave me a glimpse of eternity and is still in the process of teaching me how to acquire eternal treasures.
  • My mind fought this voice during the day when it was busy but Mr. Know-It-All still found time to talk to me by invading my dreams the moment I lay down.
  • My mind told me I was limited to what I’ve seen and what I’ve heard over the years but Mr. Know-It-All negated this by showing me that I can do all things in Him.

Luke_18-27
King James Bible Online

With time, I put my guards down and allowed Mr. Know-It-All to take control. He began downloading stuff into my spirit: answers to past predicaments, guidance for present plans and even secrets to future victories. My mind was still in the picture, but compared to His knowledge, I literally felt like a drop of water in the ocean.
And that is how AnneObure lost her mind; in the safest place one could ever imagine.
On A Lighter Note: Sometimes my mind tries to swim downstream when Mr. Know-It-All says upstream and thoroughly drowns in the process. Thank God for His mercies. He envelopes me with His Love and sets me back on course.

Toxic Ingredients That Kill

Dangerous Recipe! None Adds Value.
Bitter Cycle.

Bitterness is resentment. It is disappointment at being treated unfairly. What benefit does it bring into our lives? None at all! On the contrary, bitterness leads to anger.

Anger is a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. What benefit does it bring into our lives? None at all! On the contrary, anger leads to hatred.

‘Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.’ – Ephesians 4:31-32.

Hatred is an extremely strong feeling of dislike or ill will. What benefit does it bring into our lives? None at all! On the contrary, hatred leads to conflict.

‘Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all transgressions.’ Proverbs 10:12.

Conflict is serious disagreement or argument, typically a protracted one. What benefit does it bring into our relationships? None at all! On the contrary, conflict leads to darkness.

‘Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.’Romans 12:17-19.

Darkness is wickedness or evil. What benefit does it bring into our lives? None at all! On the contrary, darkness leads to death.

‘But you are a chosen race, A royal priesthood, A holy nation, A people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;’ – 1 Peter 2:9.

Death is the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism. What benefit does it bring into our lives? None at all! On the contrary, death is the end of life.

Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured.‘ – 1 Corinthians 13:4-5.

On a Lighter Note: This is the only recipe that does not lead to obesity when taken in excess, mainly because the organism dies instead.

Push! I Can See The Head!

Expectation

This is how it all started. You had this great idea that came to you like a mere thought. Do you know that this thought was influenced by what you were reading, watching, experiencing? This thought was a seed planted into your system. This was the conception stage.

‘And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.’ – Genesis 1:24.

Slowly by slowly, you began to research on this new thing. You were so excited. 100% of your time was spent online, reading testimonials of those who have successfully embarked on it. All of a sudden, the idea took control over you. Remember this was a strange entrant into your normal day-to-day activities. It came with it’s demands (cravings) and began to alter your routine. This was the first trimester.

After a while, you and the idea got used to each other. Although you had to adjust your system (new eating habits, bigger clothes, etc.), The idea now seemed tangible. Others began to see it in you, you too got used to your new image and comfortably readjusted. You even stopped researching further; kinda like felt as though you have become a guru. You knew what time to wake up, when to eat what, and who to avoid (Hahaha. mothers know exactly what I’m talking about). You even wanted to write a book on it. This was the second trimester.

‘Be positive, cheerful, grateful and expectant’ – Earl Nightingale.

All of a sudden things began to escalate at an alarming rate. Nothing could fit any more. No room for food. Your emotions began to lack direction. You laughed when it was time to cry and wailed when you were happy. You became impatient. You began to wonder what this great idea looked like, whether it actually existed, when it would materialize and so on. This was the third trimester.

‘Hope is favorable and confident expectation; it’s an expectant attitude that something good is going to happen and things will work out, no matter what situation we are facing.’ – Joyce Meyer.

Here you are now. It is time to deliver. Your nesting instincts are on point. Everything required for the great idea to take shape is already here. The different stages pushed you to prepare for this moment. The great idea is fully grown. It will push itself out very soon. The world needs it. You were created to reproduce ideas that will make this world a better place. This is the time to remember everything you have learnt regarding this great idea.

‘He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that THE BIRDS OF THE AIR come and NEST IN ITS BRANCHES.” – Matthew 13:31-32.

Hold on to every Word. Spare every ounce of energy you have left for the coming birth. Surround yourself with people who will encourage you rather than those who’ll instill fear. What lies ahead ain’t easy. The delivery part is just the beginning. You will need to nurture this great idea until it is mature enough to be on its own.

I am talking about your dreams, your talents, your desires, your ideas, anything you have ever wanted to be and to do. It is time to proceed to the delivery room. Believe in yourself. You can do this!

On a Lighter Note: This pic was taken a day before my son was born. You and I must agree that that smile is fake. I was soooo scared. Now I know better.

Get Out!

Knackered Box!

The city is knackered – every thinkable business already exists, all vacancies filled. Get out of the city and empower the small counties and towns by sharing your great ideas and expertise.

The church buildings are knackered – those in service are burned out while those in need go in and leave the same way they came. Get out of the four walls and be the church of God everywhere you go, by sharing the Love He has put in you.

‘And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’ – Mark 16:15.

The government is knackered – our leaders are not efficiently performing their duties due to one reason or the other. Get out of the blame game and play your part by first and foremost covering them in prayer, and thereafter obeying the law of the land.

‘Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God…..’Romans 13:1-7.

We are knackered – no longer having the zeal we had when we first encountered God. Get out of familiar grounds and affordable targets. Our purpose in life is much greater than our physical ability. God is calling us deeper. We cannot hear His voice where we are because He has gone before us. Do you remember the last assignment He gave you? Begin from the known to the unknown.

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.’ – Romans 12:11-13.

Get out of your worry and into your calling. 

  • There we shall be empowered because our assignments are bigger than us.
  • There we shall exercise our talents as well as the gifts He’ll add unto us.
  • There we shall find contentment and a blessing commanded.
  • There we shall not only see the hand of God, but His face too.

There you shall reproduce,
So open your heart for His use;
There you shall multiply,
So spread your wings and fly.

She didn’t bid anyone farewell when she left;
A divine firewall was created thus no connection was felt.

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered.

Via Roots

(In Memory of The Late Mr. G. O. Ochoro – Daddy)
‘Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.’ – Hebrews 12:1.
I came to the precious land of my forefathers,
I came just to love on others;
I came to the pleasant memories of my late father,
I came just to honor my Heavenly Father.

I saw food, friends and family.

I saw peace, prosperity and power.
I saw abundance, acceptance and allowance.
I saw love and length of life.

I conquered greed, grudge and grumpiness.
I conquered pity, poverty and powerlessness.
I conquered death, denial and dumbness.
I conquered lies and linear ties.


I came, I saw and I conquered;
My roots, my rite of passage.

On a Lighter Note: Today heaven must have given dad a front seat as he watched me relive his precious memories at Jusa Estate!

The Winning Vote

Via Grey/Gray!

We are in the season of nominating those who will represent different parties in the coming elections. Campaigns have been done and now is the time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Picture this: an area with two candidates having an ordinary citizen approaching the station, picking the ballot, and ignorantly ticking both boxes!

  • This vote holds no water,
  • This vote is equated to no vote;
  • This vote is out of order,
  • This vote is a spoiled vote.

This is what happens every time we mix fear and faith. These two principles belong to opposing kingdoms. They cannot correlate. It’s always either one or the other.

  • The former brings death, while the latter, Life!
  • The former brings darkness, while the latter, Light!
  • The former has no future, while the latter’s Bright!
  • The former resembles black, while the latter, White!

Both candidates are campaigning in our lives. Both have shown us their referendum. It’s our responsibility to avidly scrutinize each, and note that there are pros and cons (all pros lie in faith while all cons in fear). Thereafter we will be able to cast an informed vote towards the principle we want to live by. Each principle activates the kingdom behind it and negates the other principle’s kingdom.

‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.’ – 2 Timothy 1:7

What therefore is the definition of the word(s) ‘grey/gray?’ This is a mixture of fear and Faith; a mixture of death and Life; a mixture of darkness and Light; a mixture of black and White.

‘For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.’ – Ephesians 5:8

On a lighter note: Even the word ‘grey/gray’ in itself is yet to decide whether she should be spelled using ‘e’ for fear or ‘a’ for faith. A vote of no confidence goes out from me to her.

Silence The World – Awaken The Truth

Via Zipper!

  • They taught me: necessity is the mother of invention; I have learned that simplicity is the Father of revelation. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.’ – Psalm 119:130.
  • They taught me: God helps those who help themselves; I have learned that God lifts those who humble themselves. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.’ – James 4:10.
  • They taught me: Out of sight out of mind. I have learned to walk by faith, not by sight. ‘For we walk by faith, not by sight.’ – 2 Corinthians 5:7.
  • They taught me: Fight back when beaten up. I have learned to offer my left cheek after the right’s been slapped. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.’ – Luke 6:29.
  • They taught me: First come first served. I have learned to wait on the Lord. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.’ – Isaiah 40:31.

Nature’s Little Secrets

Via Avid! Via Earth!
Ever since childhood, when I would visit my grandparents, I always found myself asking many questions, with the aim of trying to understand why things are the way they are – specifically nature. I am at their ranch visiting again and this time round, avidly examining nature; its beauty, its actions, its existence and so on. One thing has stood out: the fact that all creation is worshiping God. That is what everything was created to do.

Some through color;

Others through sounds,

Pictures I have gathered;

To help me expound.

18119043_10154516980526167_2586851225775771886_n (1)
Look at the smile on Grandma’s face. Makes me wanna melt. Lesson Learnt: Celebrate your loved ones while they are still alive. There’s a lot to learn from those who have been there longer than us.

18118667_10154516982031167_6872904952104820967_n
This is fresh from Grandpa’s farm. The little things we take for granted. Lesson Learnt: They live longer than we do because they eat healthier than we do.

18157357_10154516986321167_3704301954763649049_n
This picture gives me a worship feel. Looks as though the banana trees are bowing down in worship. Lesson Learnt: I will lift my hands in worship and bow down in adoration because He has given me the ability to do so.

18057183_10154516983186167_3218345577679631026_n
This little garden is quite welcoming in front of Grandma’s porch. Lesson Learnt: Always look good.

18118752_10154516974806167_1815195957782678304_n (1)
I used to think I was tall until I met these guys. Lesson Learnt: There’s always something I can learn from another. I have not yet attained all knowledge.

Ain’t she beautiful? She looks to me as though she’s trying to make the ‘ok’ sign with her petals even though she can see that her leaves have been eaten away. Lesson Learnt: Always remain positive, even when everyone around you is negative.

On a lighter note, this tree resembles the one Adam and Eve were hanging out under when the serpent showed up. What do you think?

  • I now believe that the word ‘Analogy’ simply means Anna using Logic to understand how God can use anything to communicate to her.
  • I now understand why the Gospel needs to be preached to every creature: because they too were created to worship the Creator, thus should not be left behind in this Great Commission.

It’s time to show a keen interest on everything around us. There is so much to learn. God is at liberty to speak to us through anything: both living and non – living, with the aim of ensuring that we clearly understand what He is saying.

‘And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature’ – Mark 16:15

We Are Family

Harmony!

I am for Soprano. I am your Sister;
I am A for Alto. I am AnneObure.
You are for Tenor. You are my Teammate;
You are for Bass. You are my Brother.

When combined, we form chords that cannot be broken!

Together we produce a symphony;
Divided we generate unnecessary agony.
Together we release a sweet smelling fragrance;
Divided we allow the enemy to advance.

Heaven resounds our unity;
When we combine every ability.
Grab your corner and instrument;
Let’s penetrate every firmament.

Psalms 133:1 – ‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

Game Shot!

Via Spike.

My dad used to love darts with a passion! He’d take us with him to the canteen where there’d be tournaments and most of the times he used to win. I never got to learn the rules of the game, but I loved it when the referee would shout, ‘Game Shot!’ right after dad has thrown a missile. He’d run to us and throw us in the air with so much excitement!

In like manner, when our Heavenly Father spikes you with His glory, there’s a sharp increase in the magnitude of your ability to fulfill your Kingdom assignment. You are able to walk in His will without having to guess.

  • Luke 4 18The poor are delivered!
  • Everything you do is spot on!
  • The brokenhearted are healed!
  • The captives are delivered!
  • The blind begin to see!

Draw near to God and learn the rules of the game. There is a missile called the Word of God (Jesus Christ) and a Referee called the Holy Spirit. The board stands for this world. This missile needs to be as sharp as possible so that it can penetrate the board, rather than fall on the ground. At the same time, the referee will let you know when the time is right for you to throw.

Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers! The LORD has aroused the spirit of the kings of the Medes, Because His purpose is against Babylon to destroy it; For it is the vengeance of the LORD, vengeance for His temple. – Jeremiah 51:11

Now go ahead and take a step of faith and throw your missiles! I hope I have demystified this wonderful journey we are in. Enjoy every assignment the Lord has for you because the end of it is already known: ‘Game Shot!’ He will pick you up and flood you with blessings and you will receive your reward – 1 Cor 3:8

Come Up Higher

Via Climbing!

As a child, I heard about God;

In my youth, I was taught His ways.

In my pride, I ran away from God;

In my doom, I see His Face.

 

And I begin to rise with Him;

From Glory to Glory.

A change occurs within;

I sing Holy! Holy!

 

He’s beckoning you

To draw closer

He’s challenging you

To surrender

 

Taking the first step

He will do the rest

Climbing up for help

He will be your nest

Hell Fire

Via Fry!

As the Spirit of the Lord leads us to repentance, sometimes He uses the harsh reality of damnation so as to soften our hardened hearts. He doesn’t do this to scare us back to The Way Of Life Everlasting but rather to salvage us from eternal death that was not designed for man. This bottomless pit is real guys. Even the fallen angels don’t wanna be sent there.

Things shall fry, and not die
Things shall fry, I not lie 
Things shall fry, my heart cries
Things shall fry, the time’s nigh

Turn away from these things that are not of God while Grace still abounds. Place them at the foot of the Cross: our cusp. Divine exchange will begin to happen:

He’ll give beauty for ashes
He’ll give strength for fear
He’ll give gladness for mourning
He’ll give peace for despair

I have had a taste of heaven and it has changed my life forever. I not only look forward to spending eternity beholding God’s Beauty and Splendor, but I also look forward to sharing this paradise with you. My hearts desire is that when the Spirit of the Lord leads you to repentance, you shall yield to Him.

This is my message to all who have tasted the goodness of the Lord but have become callous. The Angel of Revival is coming with judgment on her wings. Only two things will happen: The good will begin to fly (soar in the things of God with no struggle, life to all areas of death) and the bad will begin to fry (flesh will eat itself up, death in all areas of life)

“Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster.”  – Deuteronomy 30:15

A Choking Reality

Via Cranky.

I have worn these clothes for years on end. The body has increased while the fabric has decreased (due to washing) thus giving a cranky effect.

  • Why don’t I do myself justice and give them away?
  • Then I’ll create room in my closet for the new ones I desire.

I’m fond of eating too much just before getting into bed. My body huffs and puffs, trying to rest while I sleep and at the same time, digest this food. The reason I wake up cranky is because morning comes when both activities are not complete.

  • Why don’t I do myself justice and reduce my portions?
  • Then I’ll have loose change to give to the hungry.

Did I just forget to comb my hair, brush my teeth and iron my clothes? Could it be due to the fact that I’ve accumulated too much knowledge and pushed the basics to some dark corner at the back of my mind? Am I getting cranked up?

  • Why don’t I do myself justice and begin to share what I’ve learnt?
  • Then I’ll be able to think straight.

God has been speaking to me ever since I met Him; about anything and everything. Recently, His voice has become more audible to my ears and His presence even more real in my spirit. I humbly asked Him, ‘Why me Lord?’ And this was His response:

  • ‘You did yourself justice by vomiting all the excess stuff that was choking you and woke up to My reality: …..It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35)’

Conclusion: Let me do myself justice by passing this revelation on to you, lest you miss out on the most important things in life. Before you go, listen to the song below. I’m sure it will get rid of any cranky feeling you have.

Unspeakable Joy

Via: Chuckle-Filled Day

Chuckle

 

  • I wake up in the morning, actually The Spirit of The Lord wakes me up, and fills the room with so much joy, puts a song in my spirit and keeps me locked in for a while. I get carried away and almost wake my child. I chuckle!
  • As I lazily decide to catch another wink, I receive a message from Nations Arise Revival Ministries:  Rejoicing In Our Tribulations. I chuckle!
  • My day begins with an 8 o’clock Skype meeting with my supervisor, whom I have never met (remember I work from home), and I get to learn that we went to the same primary school: thirteen years apart! I chuckle!
  • A friend was having a bad day yesterday and I tried all I could to lift his spirits, but he went to bed quite low. I made a simple prayer to God, that He, in His own loving way, may visit the man in his dream. I receive a text from him in the morning that there was a lady in his dream who asked him what he wanted. He asks this lady (I am convinced she’s an angel) for paradise, his parent’s blessings and God’s blessings and mercy wherever he goes in this world. God, let’s chuckle!
  • The Spirit of The Lord leads me to pray for Kenya, and I’m tempted to take my phone and text a friend at the battle front who has been offline for many days, but after overcoming the temptation, spending time in God’s presence, I hear my phone vibrate and Alas! My friend is online, carrying good news of victory. I cry for joy, and I chuckle!
  • I bump into Eddie James’ songs, listen to almost all of them, and decide to send Bilha one called I Need You just for her to inform me that, of all his songs, this happens to be her favorite. Who would have guessed! I chuckle!
  • Some urgent payment was to be done yesterday morning. I get carried away with work, and the moment it dawns on me that it was 3 pm, I pick up my phone to make a call before the banks close, and a text comes in, ‘The deposit was done in the morning, kindly follow up with the accountant’. Isn’t that a good reason to chuckle?
  • The Daily Post suggests ‘chuckle’ as today’s prompt. I’m chuckling!

Today I have indeed followed the steps that God had already ordered for me. May this be so for all of us all the days of our lives. Have a chuckle-filled day!

From Opaque To Awake

If Light does not penetrate, how will we see?
If we are thick – headed, how will we be able to understand?
If we are not transparent, how will others learn from us?
If we are opaque, how will our Maker reach us?

I am awake, watching and waiting
I am awake, searching the Word
I am awake, interceding for the Lost
I am awake, communing with my Maker

Wake up! Open your eyes.
Wake up! Clear your mind.
Wake up! Receive the Light.
Wake up! Your Maker beckons.

Opacity kills! Light gives life!

A Ripple Effect

Jolt

 

The source of knowledge has evolved over the years. There was a time African children sat in circles while the elderly poured out generational stories that had educative messages. Women taught their girls how to cook, clean and make good wives as the men challenged the boys on leadership skills as well as providing for their homes. A people were known by their ways of living thus only limited to their ancestral skills and strengths. One was a parent to their children as well as a teacher, a doctor, a leader, and any other need that arose.

As time went by, the missionaries came to Africa and brought with them good things such as schools, hospitals, and so on. Africans were enrolled into these schools (both young and old) and were taught other ways of doing things, other languages, and most importantly, other religions. This began with basic day-to-day skills being imparted on them as well as knowledge in the use of handy tools for making work easier. With time and a period of many years, the system grew and was categorized into progressive clusters: pre – school, preparatory, high school, college, university, and so on. The higher the cluster, the more specialized it became. This has given birth to doctors, teachers, engineers, chefs, political leaders, coaches, drivers, lawyers, beauticians, etc. The key point to note here is that one could only go to one school per time and specialize in one area. For instance, once you attained the grade required for Medicine, you’d receive an admission letter to enroll into a university and as a boarder, spend a few years of your youth learning nothing but doctor – related units.

Now has come a time when the world has come to our finger tips via the World Wide Web! You need a food recipe? It’s a click away! You’re having pain on your lower back? The doctor is right there. You could call the number on your screen , get a prescription emailed and forward it to your nearest pharmacist, who is more than willing to do home deliveries! You feel fatter than fitter? Tune in to online Zumba sessions and even receive a personal trainer! All these, while taking a few online courses: one on Law, another on IT, and yet another on Home Management. To make it even better, you’re a Chat Support Agent for an online Magazine, a Proofreader for an online News website, a Telemarketer for an online Clothes Shop; all of which are streams of income. Can life get any better?

In like manner, God’s plan has been unfolding through various stages. There was a time God led His people through one individual: His Spirit would come upon the chosen one and he would decode God’s message and relay it to the people. These men were the only ones who had a direct relationship with God. They had to come from a priestly lineage. One had to confess his or her sins to these guys and they’d represent the people in the Holy of Holies. Can you imagine this only happened once a year! So if one had committed a sin that was going to defile the community, they had to be excommunicated until the next annual confession day. The ordinary man (one who wasn’t a priest) had no idea who God is. All he saw was what God did. I compare this with our first paragraph that talks about the elders training the children in the traditional African setup.

Then came a time when the Son of God came from heaven to earth. What was His main agenda? To take away the sin of the world, that we may approach God’s Throne. He, through the scriptures, has shown us how we ought to live, and therefore set a syllabus that prepares us for my next paragraph.

  • He is our School of Medicine – Matt 8:5-17 (He healed the sick),
  • He is our School of Law – 1 John 2:1 (He advocates for us when we sin),
  • He is our School of Diet – 1 Cor 11:23-34 (The Holy Communion),
  • He is our School of Bio – Chemistry – John 2:1-11 (He turned water into wine),
  • He is our School of Creative Arts – Matt 14:22-33 (He walked on water),
  • He is our School of Ecology – Matt 8:23-27 (He calmed the storm),
  • He is our School of Political Science – Matt 21:12 (He whipped the money changers),
  • And many more Schools, according to the needs thereof.

During this era, God taught man via illustrations and these were geographically limited to Jesus’ physical location, as my paragraph above that speaks of man having to do one course at a time.

Now has come a time when the Holy Spirit, once we confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, comes in us and makes our hearts His home! Everything Jesus did, we can do, and greater things than He did (John 14:12). He is our Parakletos – He leads us to a deeper knowledge of the Gospel of Truth, and gives us divine strength needed to enable us to undergo trials and persecutions on behalf of the Kingdom. He teaches us all things – even reminds us what we have forgotten! (John 14:26). W

Here comes the ripple effect – When The Holy Spirit, through me, touches the world-wide web and boom! A serious jolt that’s out of this world (literally). That’s the only way I’ll manage to be God’s witness to the ends of the earth!

Sooner Than Later

Just when I had reached my end,

You Rose!

Just when I had lost everything,

You Rose! 

Just when I had lost all hope,

You Rose!

Just when they had branded me fatherless,

You Rose!

Just when I had been swallowed up,

You Rose!

Just when I was about to give up,

You Rose!


You Rose,

And gave me a new beginning!

You Rose,

And restored every lost thing!

You Rose, 

And made me hope again!

You Rose,

And ushered me to the Father!

You Rose,

And snatched me from the enemy’s snare.

You Rose,

And revived me!


The gospel shall be published among all nations,

Then I’ll Rise!

The sun shall be darkened,

Then I’ll Rise!

The moon shall not give her light,

Then I’ll Rise!

The stars of heaven shall fall,

Then I’ll Rise!

The powers that are in heaven shall be shaken,

Then I’ll Rise!

The Son of man shall be seen coming in the clouds with great power and glory,

Then I’ll Rise!

I shall meet Him in the air,

Then together, we will Rise!

Data

Heal & Rejuvenate

There was a time the word ‘data’ was a plural word meaning “facts or pieces of information”. Of recent times, the word data is one way that device users can gain wireless access to the internet.

In my world however, Data is a synonym that stands for:

Daily

Reversing Verses

Daily

Every new day comes with its own agenda. A daily renewal is therefore required so that your software can be current in this dynamic times. You therefore have to make sure that your antennas are facing the right direction so that you may receive the right signals. Begin your day from finding out what’s in store. Spend time with God in prayer. That’s the only way you will receive the Rhema Word. Forget about yesterday. It is gone and will never return. This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it! You have been rejuvenated today. Daily Healing is more like it.

Anointing

This is the wireless enablement received once our data has been activated. Anointing comes from the Triune God: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. I love using the 3G analogy to portray God and 4G to portray my partnership with Him. God and I make a good team! You have been anointed. Empowered is more like it!

To

Once you have been anointed, what next? You are able to:

  • Preach the Gospel to the poor
  • Heal the brokenhearted
  • Preach deliverance to the captives
  • Preach recovery of sight to the blind
  • Set at liberty them that are bruised

You have been appointed. Service is more like it!

“For God is working in you giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him” – Philippians 2:13

Attract

The anointing makes all the difference. This is what attracts the creation to the Creator. No human effort is required. All we have to do is lift God up by fulfilling His call over our lives; by going out and bringing in every creature; by daily walking according to His ways. Jesus is very attractive. Once He is allowed to dominate in our lives, the world automatically acknowledges Him as Lord and Savior!Our lifestyle speaks of our Life – Giver. (Read more of this at http://www.rhema.co.nz/the-word-for-today). Jesus conquered all when He died on the Cross. He bore all our iniquities and sicknesses; he paid the price that we might live; He did it all for you and I.You have been adorned. Beautified is more like it!

Once you surrender to this gospel, do not just preach the Word. Live it! I conclude by echoing St. Francis of Assisi’s words, “Preach the Gospel at all times and if necessary, use words”. You’ve got all the ‘Data’ bundles required for a stable connection: the medium connecting earth to heaven. Your subscription period is eternal. Your Service Provider changes not! He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). When you feel as though the connection is dying, this does not mean that the anointing is any less. It actually means that your battery is running low. Charge yourself up by praying in the Holy Spirit (Jude 20) and your network bars will be full again; ready to decode heaven’s language according to the needs thereof.

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Security
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4

God – Ultimate Security

There are times when we feel as though we’re all alone. These are the times we wanna give up. Everything seems to be caving in on us. This is when I practice my 2 – 3 – 4 rule (Psalms 23:4 – The numbers are sequential thus easy to memorize). You could also term it as Hope, Step and Jump!

  • Hope in God

  • Step Out

What more security do we need? If a mere sparrow doesn’t end up in the wrong hands, how much more you and I? (Matthew 10:29) Focus on Him, the Author of our lives and all these other things shall become non – issues. Nothing is impossible with God. Go ahead! sign up for that task which seems difficult. He has gone before you. He has set angels to watch over you (Luke 4:10). There is light at the end of that tunnel you are in right now.  All you need to do is look up, go deeper and lift Him higher!

I Killed My Old Man

The Cross – My Cusp
Oh Yes, I did!

You ask me why?

There was no other choice. It was either he dies or I die. He was a slave, quick to anger and didn’t have a future. He was physically strong for sure, but I needed more than that; I needed supernatural strength. He was prone to diseases, failure, hurts, destruction and ultimately death. I had to end his life before he dragged me to eternal death with him.

the-old-man-is-dead

Photo Courtesy of https://mudpreacher.org/tag/crucified/

You ask me how I did it?

My Brother helped me out. We hang my old man on a tree. Yes, we crucified him! It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. The Cross became my Cusp – the dividing line between my old man and I.

Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

I began to live the day my old man died. WheColossians+3v3+by+Alyssa+Reevesn he was alive, I was decaying since I had a sinful nature. Then my Brother came and showed me the filth in my old man. He made a way for me by being The Way, The Truth and The Life! He introduced me to Father. He gave me a new body; one that can accommodate Dad in it; How cool is that! Can you imagine He sent the Holy Spirit to guide and protect me on a real-time basis. What more could I ask for. He’s the greatest Resource you could ever have.

You ask me whether I regret it? 

Not at all! He was the reason for all my problems. He was full of generational curses and sin. He was born into this world through Adam’s lineage: certified failure. When I was informed that I have to be born again, I knew for sure that he was too big to go back into mom’s womb, thus had to die.

You ask me what I gained from killing him?

New CreatureEternal Life! I was born into a new family. I became a new creature; totally transformed. This was instant in my spirit, a continuous process in my soul and will be perfected when this body eventually returns to dust. This is the sweetest journey I have had to take; one of knowing my new identity each day; one with assured victory; one with my Father in me and I in Him. He holds me up that I may not hit my foot on a stone. He leads me in the way I should follow. He is teaching me how to be like Him; ever Loving, never-failing. He sent His only Son to take my place on the cross (the Brother I told you about earlier; the one who helped me kill my old man). He did it all for me, that I might live.

Dying to selfMy old man did not want to die. This is the reason why there’s war in my head at times. What should I therefore do? I must take up my cross daily. everyday comes with its trials, problems, sicknesses, temptations, persecutions and so on. To hell with all these (actually that’s where all these belong). I have to consciously remember who I am and why I am still here. It is my responsibility to unlearn the things taught to me by my old man. I have the answers to all life’s issues in the Word and the Word dwells in me through the Holy Spirit. He came and made my heart His home. He became everything I am and all I know. Oh what a joy! Without Him I am nothing. In Him I live, in Him I move, in Him I have my being!

So what exactly am I saying?

My old man died. My new man was born. I can’t keep silent. It is the best thing that ever happened to me. My new man cannot die. He is hid in Christ Jesus. He who is in me is greater than he who’s in the world (1 John 4:4). He will never leave me nor forsake me. He holds my future by knowing my expected end (Jeremiah 29:11).

Now here’s the Good News!

What He has done is not for me alone. He did it for you and I. I’d be selfish to go on this eternal vacation on my own; walking on the streets of gold, owning an immortal body, a place with no sorrow, no sicknesses, no death, and so on. Guess what! He already made a reservation for you and went ahead and paid the full price. What are you waiting for? Raise your tree! Kill your old man! If you already have, take a seat next to me (follow me, like and share this post) as we journey the world-wide web with the intention of making him known in all corners of the earth. Isn’t this the reason we’re still here? to show the world His goodness that He may draw them to Himself?Draw men to Himself

Lift Him Up!

His Name Be Lifted Higher

Lift Him Up!

exalt His Holy Name!

Don’t forget what you were made for.

I was made to Love and be Loved. I was made to share my life with you. I was made to make a difference. I was made to overcome. I was made to thrive. When all is said and done, I was made whole!

James is Trying

You were made to dream.
Made to believe.
Made to have unbreakable faith.
You were made to put everything you have into something.
Made to count on it.
To rely on it.
To know it will always be there.
You were made to be wrong.

You were made to be let down.
Made to question your faith.
Question love.
Question hope.
Question yourself.
You were made to be broken.
Cracked.
Shattered.

Suffering The Child: Your Responsibility

What a joy it is to train a child on a certain task and see them perform it as expected. These little creatures watch us closely and before long, they begin to behave like us. It is therefore important that we take precaution in our daily happenings for the sake of transferring only the right attributes to them. The same applies to the principles of the Kingdom of God. Just as your child will learn how to walk, talk, smile and even clap by watching you and others do it, so does he or she learn of and about God.

Matthew-19-14-Suffer-Little-Children-To-Come-Unto-Me-brown-copy

Picture of hands courtesy of David Niblick at Imagebase

Have you ever wondered why God used the word ‘suffer’? Does it sound too strong to be used in the same sentence as the word ‘child’? The first time I came across this verse, I was perplexed. I know that there are other translations that have used different words in the place of ‘suffer’, but this is purely for the sake of a better understanding to the target audience. After experiencing motherhood, I now support this word completely. It basically means that we have to do what it takes to ensure that these children catch the Kingdom Culture; we have to ensure that they do not miss heaven! Moreover, we have to do this while they are still young, so that we do not regret in the future when it is too late.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

if-we-dont-teach-our-children-who-god-is-someone-7557521

A good example would be potty training. When they are born, children live on diapers as much as milk. There’s no greater joy to a mother than a child who has done a poop. At this stage, the diaper captures fieces; the only communication the infant’s body has with the doctor in case of an infection since speech has not been developed. As soon as the child is able to speak, potty training commences, and this process is very delicate as well as very important. Did you know that delayed toilet training puts children at a higher risk of developing bladder problems such as daytime incontinence, bed wetting and recurrent Urinary Tract Infections? For more information go to http://www.parentingscience.com/science-of-toilet-training.html. If potty training is not done at home, it will have to be done in school and the parent will have no control of the methods used. This may lead to low self esteem. In the same breath, if we don’t teach our children who God is, someone else will teach them everything that He’s not.

Deuteronomy

Teaching our children the ways of God does not necessarily entail a blackboard, some chalk and a stick. These little beings catch anything and everything. What does this mean? Our lives should mirror Christ. Monkey see, monkey do. The same God who has entrusted these kids to us is more than willing to guide us on this process, remembering that he is the Author and Perfecter of our lives, He is the Beginning and the End, He knew us (our children included) even before we were born. Our work therefore as parents and guardians is not only to nurture our children into physical successes, but also to unfold the Kingdom Agenda to them and help them find where they fit into it and together as the body of Christ we will be able to reconcile this world back to God.

Daliela Watkins says it clearly on the video below:
