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.

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.

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