Working From ‘Home’

Working from home is not new to me, but this time round, it has shed some amazing light in my Christian journey. Let me explain:

Jesus Christ came to earth and stayed a while before dying and resurrecting to save it. Why so? He wanted to demonstrate to us how we should live. This is what He had to say, “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 does.”John 5:19. Isn’t this a perfect example of ‘Working From Home?’ He left heaven and came to earth, but could only do what He saw being done in heaven. He was coming from heaven, thus heaven is His home. Jesus Christ worked from ‘home’ while on earth.

Before leaving earth, He said, “Occupy/Engage in business, until I come.”Luke 19:13. If Christ, who was 100% man and 100% God while on earth, still needed to consult heaven before making a move, how much more we CHRISTians? We’ve got to knock on heaven’s door. God gave us an assignment and Christ demonstrated how we’re to go about fulfilling it. We’ve got to go back ‘home’ and work from there.

Again, we know that, “Our business/citizenship is in heaven and from there we look for the Life Giver, our Lord, Jesus Christ”Philippians 3:20. This means that we cannot achieve any results here on earth, if we do not consult heaven. We’ve got to stay ‘home’.

And how are we supposed to do this? First and foremost, we need to be aware of our positioning. “For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in heaven because we’re united with Christ Jesus!”Ephesians 2:6. Once we accept Christ, We’re with God 24/7. We’re ‘home’.

Our Father says, “Come now, let us reason together. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”Isaiah 1:18. God has an open door policy (open heavens) in His relationship with us. “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”Hebrews 4:16. Nothing can separate us from the Love of God. Romans 8:35-39. Hallelujah! We’re home to stay! Praise the Lord!

Dear friends, our need for God will keep growing more and more as this world keeps getting closer to the end. We can not afford to live a natural life anymore. The supernatural should be our new normal. We’ve got to work from home (heaven), now than ever before. That’s the only answer to these problems that we’re facing. “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”Matthew 6:10. There’s got to be a difference between we (the church/bride of Christ) and the world. It’s time for Maneno na Matendo (faith and action). We’re in this world for a time such as this – Esther 4:14. The home we’re supposed to be working from has no fear and uncertainty. The home we’re supposed to be working from has all the solutions. Heaven is our home. Let us work from home.

Are you yet to call heaven your home? 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 (Romans 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.

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.

He Talks, I Type; I Walk, He Guides!

He died that I may live for Him;

He lives in me that I may move in Him;

He moves in me that I may walk like Him;

He walks with me that I may see His works;

He works in me that I may complete the task;

He completes me that I may be His Body!

He did not force me but gathered.

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

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.

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!

The Cycle Revealed!

butterfly-egg

I Started off as an egg. Very innocent, didn’t decide where to be born, no specific figure (simply round). At this point, I uniquely resembled those who bore me. They nurtured me and gave me their all as a head start of what was ahead. The cycles of life began to work on me. These again were beyond my control. I had to feed my way into growth.

 

I fed on mom (the leaf that carried me when I was an egg, I fed on the things I came across as I crawled; both good and bad. All these moulded me and prepared me for my next stage in life. The environment I was in determined my diet. I too was a danger to others as I tried to defend myself so as to survive. This, I must say, was a very influential part of my life. The schools I went to, the neighborhood I lived in, the God I was introduced to, and so on. Everyday is a learning experience and I, with the help of my seniors, managed to make the best out of it without missing the mark. Slowly by slowly I began to understand the reason for living. I began to look forward to beincaterpillar-with-bowg a butterfly. I had role models to look up to while I was faced with the challenge of selecting which colors I wanted to have on my wings. Some were already predetermined by my genes and upbringing, but others had to be acquired by the choices I made. Slowly by slowly I began to realize that this whole process was highly dependent on what I fed myself with; either Faith or fear. Whenever I was eating the right diet, exercising what I’ve learnt, my colors would begin to glow. Whenever I fed on rubbish and shamelessly practiced the same, my colors would fade. This became a cycle. A Kingdom citizen living in Babylon. Forces within and without began to fight. Since my exoskeleton does not stretch no matter how much I eat, the molting process began. A lot of outgrown skin had to be shed. This is the most painful process I have had to go through. Disconnecting myself from those who create distraction, dissension and disrespect. Choosing those who will go with me to the next stage to assist me in preparing to be a butterfly.

In my hearts of hearts, I thank God for my one Friend who will never leave nor forsake me; The One who knows my coming in and my going out. The One who knows my expected end; The One who came and made my heart His home; The One who breathed life into the egg that was nurtured into a larva and is now gearing to hibernate as a pupa; The One who will color the stripes on my butterfly  wings; I am talking about My Father, My Savior, My Paraclete!

4640501-butterfly-pupa-milkweed-butterflyHere I am now. I have fed my way into this. I’m finally done with the circles I made while feeding on the leaves. Having reached my full length and weight, I have acquired a new name – Chrysalis (Does it sound kinda like ‘Christ’ to you?). You can call me Christ’s Ally. From the outside, I may look as if I am just resting but the inside is where all the action is. I am rapidly changing. My old body parts are undergoing a remarkable transformation – You could call this metamorphosis – to become the beautiful parts that will make up the butterfly that will emerge.

I’m letting go of fear, failure, poverty, lack, disease, infirmity, laziness, doubt, hatred, hopelessness, bitterness and death.

I’m embracing Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Humility, Self – Control, Prosperity, Divine Health, Faith, Success, Abundance, Creativity and Zoe Life. I am learning the ropes of my call; getting to know my purpose, repenting of the damages I caused in my previous stage that had to be molted out of my life and thanking God for bringing me this far, despite lots of wrong turns taken again and again. I am also learning how to embrace those around me that have been assigned to take me through this stage. I need all the rest I can get.

I am about to burst out of this and pump the Blood that gives me strength from day to day so that I am strong enough to fly and begin to reproduce. My eggs will be determined by my character. They nebutterfly-18aed to be Kingdom minded eggs and not earthly ones; they need to be given a good head start in their own cycles so as to enjoy the process. The earth needs to be filled thus I need to save on time. Oh how I look forward to this day; a day when I will be soaring on high; seeing the world from above, where I am seated; manifesting God’s goodness in all its aspects. Sharing what I have with those who need it; totally and completely putting my trust in the One who never fails; walking the talk and making my Father proud!
