Topic: Don't Trigger The Curse ✝️

The Spirit's Word: Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll. Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according to this side of the scroll; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according to that side of it.” “I will send out the curse, ” says the Lord of hosts; “It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones.” Zechariah 5:1‭, ‬3‭-‬4 NKJV

We live in a day where thieves are celebrated. Once one is assigned a position of authority or responsibility, most often than not, he or she ends up stealing or misappropriating funds or diverting money that is supposed to be for a particular task. This same group of people will throw stones at a thief that stole to feed his family or solve the hunger problem. There is no difference. There is no white thief. The Bible is clear, there is a curse in the house of he that steals. I found it amazing that the other side of the scroll is for the perjurer. There is no thief that doesn't lie or swear falsely. For you to be a thief in the first place, you have to be a "good liar" . The thief is one that has a thought-out plan. He meditates on how and where to go about his misdemeanor. Such will have prepared an answer for every possible question or accusation that might be made at them. You may not carry guns, but changing figures and pocketing that which was not given to you is stealing. Before I discovered the above Scripture, I was also guilty of some these things. I have also been in positions where people have called me names because I didn't yield to their bidding. Don't trigger a curse that lingers to generations after you.

It is only the fear of God that keeps men from stealing and lying. If you still find yourself in these iniquities, understand that God isn't pleased with such. He doesn't want a curse upon you, especially when you are His child. The funny thing is that, it's not only this curse from God that applies to a thief. Even the people will curse such a person. When Government funds are misappropriated, the people are grieved. Many curses are flying in the air from such pained souls. Hear what the Preacher said: He that withholds corn, the people shall curse him.
Proverbs 11:26. When you deny people what ought to be theirs, they will curse you. It's a normal thing for people to react in such a way to oppression. If you love your family and your generation yet to be born, you will not engage in any form of theft. Whether it is pilfering, theft, diversion, hoarding, inflating, etc., it is not worth it. Some people get involved with other people's venture in other to get gains. When they do, they are like predators that search for unsuspecting preys, who have no idea the actual worth of that good or service, and so they call out ridiculous cost or amount. Don't be wise in your own eyes. It is a great sin.

Reminder: Don't give or do to people what you won't take or accept.

Topic: Let Him Find Nothing ✝️

The Spirit's Word: I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
John 14:30 NKJV

We're in the days of God's grace and mercy. This means that God is not imputing sin to anyone who is born again. Jesus dealt with the sin problem. He took all our sins in His Body when He was crucified, died and buried. He descended into hell as '' sinful Jesus'', but was raised to life as glorious Lord. He didn't return from hell with our sins, but left them there. Hence, He testified, "it is finished". He also spoiled or overcame Satan and his cohorts, when He made an open show of principalities and powers. Colossians 2:15. He rendered the enemy powerless, and stripped him of all his armour. Any power you find the devil wielding today is the one man gave back to him because of sin. Satan is a thief, and he doesn't just steal physical things, but much more, spiritual things. He comes for the gifts of God in a man's life. He wants that power, strength, wisdom, riches, glory, honour and blessings. Make no doubt that he will get it once he comes and finds what belongs to him in you. For this reason, the Lord told us that the evil prince of this world will always come, but He mustn't find anything that belongs to him in your members. Lies, uncleanness, sexual immorality, stealing, evil eye, gossip, evil talks, and the likes, will deposit the filth of the enemy in you life.

Sin is a doctrine. The Bible talks about the mystery of iniquity. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2 Thessalonians 2:7. This means that sin is more than an action. It is a spirit in itself. Don't ever think you can sin, and still be free. Thanks to God for the blood that cleanses us. When the blood cleanses us after we have sinned, what about what the enemy stole. For this reason, God can't use a vessel that is not sanctified. We limit ourselves and spiritual ability or potential when we let sin persist. Hear what God said: If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. Genesis 4:7. God identifies sin as a personality. It is the reason for the dark places of the earth that's full of cruelty. Psalm 74:20. It is also the reason the earth was without form, void, and had darkness. Genesis 1:2. So, next time you think of sinning, God will not judge you, or condemn you. It is the enemy that comes. This is where people miss the grace message. It's not time for God to judge anyone. We are in His era of grace and mercy, nevertheless the enemy is the one that pays the wages of sin. Romans 6:23.

Reminder: He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
I John 3:8 NKJV

GRACE FROM JESUS FOR YOU AND ME:

Sure and His Grace is already and always sufficiently provided for us in each tick of second on this earthly existence
thus
"And he said unto me, *My grace is sufficient for you(each and every human being)*: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Cor.12:9)

then going further

"For the *grace of God has appeared to all human being*, bringing salvation for all people, this same grace trains/teaches us how to renounce/resist/reject ungodliness/sin/temptations and worldly passions/thoughts/desires/imaginations, and this same grace teaches/trains us how to live self-controlled, righteous, and holy lives in this present age(world/generation/country/marriage/job/business/talents/skills/offices/vocation/unmarried-state), this same grace teaches/trains us how to wait for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to *redeem/deliver us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession* who are zealous for good works. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you." (Titus 2:11-15)


Let all of us always pray for this grace and use this grace each moment of our lives then we shall remain without sin till our biological death or the second coming of Jesus Christ and become a vessel usable for the glory of God on this earth till eternity.

There is no level that you attain in your relationship with Jesus Christ Crucified that you do not need to humble yourself always to approach the throne of grace to obtain mercy and have grace to help in times of need (Hebrews 4:16) because each second that ticks on earth is a time of need whether you are in affluence or in physical lack, whether you are currently passing through unbearable situations in human calculations or happy moments.

"But Christ Jesus came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, *but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.* 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 *how much more shall the blood of Christ,* who through the eternal Holy Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason *He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant,* that those who are called(believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified) may *receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.* " (Hebrews 9:11-15)

There is no other religion that can forgive human sin and make any human being holy or have a righteous standing before the eyes of the TRUE LIVING GOD WHO CREATED THE HEAVENS, EARTH AND UNDER-WORLD.

Repent from sin/the-flesh/self-focus/religion/ideologies/philosophies/unbelief and believe/receive the grace-gospel of the Son of God; Jesus Christ Crucified on the Cross of Calvary to save all creation from sin and rose from death to give us His own LIFE (an unbroken eternal relationship with His Father)

Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 11:23pm On Sep 28
The devils' bait sin, his most effective tool for human destruction:

Sin does not just come for you to engage in it just once and you quit from it....
Sin comes to addict you...
Sin has its sweetness and promises to satisfy your soul each moment and makes you look towards another moment of its sweetness such that it can keep you coming for it over and over again with the devil's aim of keeping you in its pleasure/sweetness till you die inside it without repentance or procrastinated-repentance such that you forget death can come before your intended procrastinated date/time and you will end-up in eternal regret with the devil in hell-fire.

Just 1-second of a particular sinful engagement in thought, words, desires, imaginations or lifestyle then watch out as such sin holds such person down not just for 1-day or 1-week or 1 -year but for very long years unless the mercy of God comes with *His powerful grace to break such person away from sin/the-flesh*
This is why it is very easy to start or engage in a particular sin but it is a *great battle to quit from sin/the-flesh*
thus Jesus declared "He who commits sin is a slave(addict) to sin and a slave does not have a permanent position in the household(Heaven) but a Son abides in the household forever therefore if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed" (John 8:34-36)

Cry to Jesus Christ Crucified now with all your soul, spirit and body to be completely set free from sin and the control of sin because ONLY JESUS SAVES COMPLETELY FROM SIN
thus
"His name shall be called JESUS because He will *deliver* His brothers and sisters from their sin" (Matthew 1:21)

Do not give up in praying, fasting and studying the word of God to receive the NEW LIFE that is incorruptible by sin which JESUS gives through our faith agreement in accepting death of our *flesh/old-being/self* in union with Jesus on the Cross and having our old-dead-self *completely replaced* by *this NEW LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED* thus "having been *born again*, not of corruptible seed but *by an incorruptible seed*, through *the word of God which lives and abides forever*" (1 Peter 1:23 )

I am a living testimony that no matter how deep you have dwelt in sin, Jesus will completely set you free if you mean what you say to HIM in prayers about *dying to your flesh in union with HIM ON THE CROSS* and *receiving the new life of His resurrection* because Jesus is *able to save completely those who come to God the Father through HIM anytime or any-day
thus

"By so much was Jesus made *a surety of a better testament*.
23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
24 But this man(Jesus), because *He continues/lives forever, has an unchangeable priesthood*.
25 Wherefore *He is able also to save them to the uttermost/completely* that come unto God *by Him*, seeing *He forever lives to make intercession for them*.
26 For such *an high priest became us*, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;" (Hebrews 7:22-26 KJV)

Topic: From Rejection To Approval ✝️

The Spirit's Word: And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner: This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Mark 12:10‭-‬11 KJV

Our God is marvellous and specialises in doing marvellous acts. He did it for so many in the Bible. The world seeks to bring you down, but God is looking for men to exalt. The stone which the builders rejected and despised became the most important of all. Are you in a situation where men, and the circumstances of life has thrown all manner of darts at you? If only you would turn to God today. He can change your story. He did it for King David. A young Shepherd boy becomes a king, and a most victorious one at that. Don't look for man's approval. It is God that approves forever. Men can't bring you to lasting honour and glory. Only God can lift up a man to the point that nothing, except himself and God, can bring him down again.He approved of Hannah by making her to bare children, thereby ending barrenness. People don't celebrate you until God changes your story. You may use tricks to promote yourself. It won't last, because promotion comes from God alone. Psalm 75:6-7. Tricks come with shame. It may paint a false picture of glory and honour at first, but make no mistake, the end is reproach. Proverbs 20:21; 14:12.

God's eyes are ever on the poor, the oppressed, downtrodden, and afflicted. His mercy and compassion is drawn to the righteous and suffering one. It isn't a hard thing for God to change anyone's story. He is eager to do it. It is His will for everyone to prosper and be at peace. However, He is also bound by His Word. There has to be a seeking, and searching for God. There must be a calling out to Him. And this must be in truth. There's nothing more blessed than loving God. Don't be offended in Him. He is the solution to problems, and not the cause of anything that makes for shame, pain or affliction.
Jesus lamented over Jerusalem, because He longed to gather His people together, and be one with them, but they refused and denied Him. Luke 13:34. That is God's heart - to be one with us. He longs to endorse us to the world. Surely, we that believe are reconciled to Him, and as such, approved. But there is an approval that makes for a glorious manifestation. All men will see the seal of God in a life God marks out. Except you don't want that. Don't ignore there is a higher plane to arrive at. God's favour is only reserved for them that love Him genuinely. 1 Corinthians 2:9. Don't remain in man's rejection. Latch unto God, and let Him approve of you.

Reminder: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. Psalms 113:7‭-‬8 KJV

Pursue personal holiness by grace through faith in Jesus Christ Crucified, it is not for your fellowship members to recognize you, it is not for your parents, priest, pastor, husband, wife, children, school-mates or neighbors to recognize you
but
for you to enjoy unbroken eternal relationship/fellowship with God at each moment of your earthly existence not minding the circumstances surrounding you
thus

"Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears."

Topic: Singularity is Holiness ✝️

The Spirit's Word: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:22‭-‬23 KJV

The first words God spoke was "let there be light". Light is the first thing, being the substance of God, which is holiness. Seeing is one of the most important things in life. God spoke light before creation because He had to see what the situation was, and what needs to be done to correct what went wrong. Light is the foundation of God. Without light, what we have is darkness, evil, chaos, anarchy, and all manner of wickedness. The opening Scripture tells us to have a single eye, which means our eyes must be holy, both physically and spiritually. God's eyes are too holy to behold iniquity. Habakkuk 1:13. This is a literal truth. God can't look upon evil. He only knows it by His omniscience. What does this tell us? The more evil works you behold, tolerate, accept, indulge, trivialise, demonstrate, and commit, the more darkness floods your life. The eye is the gate. Today, the media is full of all manner evil concupiscence, because the enemy with his craftiness knows that's how to catch men. A lot of people are bound by pornography, leading to inordinate sexual engagements. Don't be ignorant of Satan's devices. He steals light.

The Scripture is talking about believers who have exchanged their light with darkness. If the light in you be darkness, how great is that darkness. The unbeliever has no light. The light of men is the life of God. John 1:5. You must expose every hidden work of darkness in your life. Don't keep it secret. Darkness thrives in secrecy. The more you try to hide that sin, the more it occupies your life and becomes a real stranglehold. Don't let Satan kill you. There is no sin that is beyond man's ability to overcome. If you have the Holy Ghost, you can actually be free. Hear what Paul said: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleeps, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. Ephesians 5:11‭-‬14. Make no mistakes about it, if darkness thrives in your life, it is death. Light equals to life. Many are in many kinds of bondage. You can be free. Expose the sin, and watch such strongholds break off from you. Let sincerity reign.

Reminder: No one has power over your will. Choose to yield to God, and His Word. Take it one day at a time. Resist evil by submitting to God. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:22 KJV
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 8:35pm On Sep 30
Living by faith in Jesus Christ Crucified is not about *monthly mess-up/sinful-appearances or freedom from sin*, it is about every second and moment focus on *praying for mercy and grace of Jesus Christ Crucified* in order to be pure and pleasing to HIM *each second on this earth*

Our focus should be on seeking the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ Crucified each second of our lives

Studying the word of God each second of our lives

Meditating on God's word each second of our earthly lives in order to obtain mercy and have grace to help us from the Throne of God's Grace

Believing, obeying and applying the word of God *first within our lives* before we should start praying for other human beings to engage in the same attitude towards God's revealed word of truth or before we go to preach to other human beings

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

We need to pray each moment of our lives in our hearts, minds and mouths asking Jesus Christ to empower us with His Holy Spirit *afresh/anew* because we are not permitted to engage in any form of witness of the unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified towards our own mortal-bodies or even other human beings *with our complex human/carnal nature whom God has concluded that through our wisdom we cannot know God but by the foolishness of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ death on the Cross and His resurrection shall men/women be saved who believe in this gospel(1 Corinthian 1:18-21)*
thus
“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But *stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven*.” (Luke 24:49 NLT)
Acts 1:8 "But *you(believers in Jesus Christ Crucified) shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you*: and *you shall be witnesses unto me* both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

Ask the Holy Spirit to break your flesh on the Cross inside the Crucified body of Jesus Christ and replace *your dead old-self with the FULL-LIFE of Jesus Christ Crucified* such that He can find you useful for His mercy and grace to flow through your mortal-body, free-will, memory, sense-organs, mind and unto each human being that you meet on this earthly existence
thus
"I(put your name here; Chibuogwu Onyemaechi) have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me. [Therefore, I do not treat God’s gracious gift as something of minor importance and defeat its very purpose]; I do not set aside and invalidate and frustrate and nullify the grace (unmerited favor) of God. For if justification (righteousness, acquittal from guilt) comes through [observing the ritual of] the Law, then Christ (the Messiah) died groundlessly and to no purpose and in vain. [His death was then wholly superfluous.]" (Galatians 2:20-21 AMPC)

"And he said unto me, *My grace is sufficient for you(each and every human being)*: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Cor.12:9)
furthermore
"For the *grace of God has appeared to all human being*, giving each human being the capacity to receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God (not minding our different religion of birth/philosophy/ideology), this same grace trains/teaches us how to renounce/resist/reject ungodliness/sin/temptations and worldly passions/thoughts/desires/imaginations, and this same grace teaches/trains us how to live self-controlled, righteous, and holy lives in this present age(world/generation/country/marriage/job/business/talents/skills/offices/vocation/unmarried-state/academics/profession/career), this same grace teaches/trains us how to wait for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to *redeem/deliver us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession* who are zealous for good works. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you." (Titus 2:11-15)

Let all of us always pray for this grace and use this grace each moment of our lives then we shall remain without sin till our biological death or the second coming of Jesus Christ and become a vessel usable for the glory of God on this earth till eternity.

There is no level that you attain in your relationship with Jesus Christ Crucified that you do not need to humble yourself always to approach the throne of grace to obtain mercy and have grace to help in times of need (Hebrews 4:16) because each second that ticks on earth is a time of need whether you are in affluence or in physical lack, whether you are currently passing through unbearable situations in human calculations or happy moments.

Do not postpone any second to pray seeking to obtain *God's mercy which gives you access to have the grace that helps any man or woman on earth in each moment of our earthly existence* such that you can become a vessel of use in God's hands.

There is mercy we seek from God when we commit sin(1 John 1:9) but there is another mercy we must seek from God at the throne of His grace *each moment of our earthly existence* without this mercy we will find ourselves *claiming to walk with God based upon our own merit/efforts/power* but there is no human being that can walk with God based upon *human merit* because "It is not of him that wills or runs in different engagements of human endeavours/vocations/services that offers *pleasing-service* unto GOD but it is by the working power of God *now functioning* inside and around each human being who has obtained mercy from GOD *who alone knows how to please HIMSELF*" (Romans 9:15-16)

This is why when Jesus Christ the Son of God submitted to His Father to obtain this mercy at water baptism and transfiguration the voice of the Father confirmed HIM as being *pleasing to HIM* thus "this is my beloved Son in whom I am well-pleased.... listen to HIM... follow His method/example of being pleasing to me" (Matthew 3:17, 17:5)

This is why each moment of our lives on earth, the best way to walk with God in order to be pleasing to HIM is to *first obtain mercy and have grace* for each assignment or instructions or vocation He reveals to us *before, during and after we engage in them* not just trying to impress God with our efforts or spirituality or even trying to impress ourselves or other human beings that we are growing in holiness or spirituality.

May the Holy Spirit reveal in more details the particular/peculiar nature of this truth in our individual lives in Jesus Name. Amen.

Topic: Pray Against The Darkness ✝️

The Spirit's Word: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonians 2:3‭, ‬6‭-‬7 KJV


Just last night, the Lord was speaking to me, to pray against the darkness, because Revelation chapter thirteen is about to play out. It's about the 666 agenda. We have to understand this is prophecy, and must surely come to pass. However, there is an appointed time for it. The opening Scripture tells us we are the ones to prevent the man of sin from being revealed before his time. Another version puts it this way: The hidden plan to live without any law is at work now, but it will be secret only until the one who is holding it back is out of the way.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 CEB. This is real. Looking at the legislature in most developed regions, we can say the New World Order has only one theme: lawlessness. They want to appeal to people's emotions and senses - that you can do anything you want to do. Removing God from every function, they mock religion, but still believe in governance. Order is not only via governance, every sector of life must be guided by law and order. We must be aware that there are human proponents of this lawlessness, who share table with devils. Satan can only work through human beings.

By the grace of God, the church isn't sleeping. It takes one man in the Spirit to thwart the works of darkness. Why did I say this? The Bible tells us: Ye are of God little children and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4. For this reason, we must be more prayerful than ever. As I prayed, I wondered how many of God's ministers, prophets, Apostles, Pastors, etc., are aware of what is currently going on in the shadows. It grieved my heart that many in church still live like they don't perceive the times we are in. We must pray and also exhibit the love of God. Love is the greatest power. Where there is hatred, be sure to find the enemy apparently more powerful that he really is. God told me it is His love being manifested that turns stony hearts into fleshy hearts. We must walk in love more than ever. In as much as we are closer to the rapture of the church than ever, our cooperation with God will prevent the enemy from moving before his appointed time. All it takes is one man to stand in the gap. God is calling out his priests to stop every evil confederacy.

Reminder: And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19 KJV

Topic: God's Prophets ✝️

The Spirit's Word: Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”
2 Chronicles 20:20 NIV

The devil has done great harm to the idea of prophets. Many who God has called into this office have not prepared themselves well enough to differentiate the voice of God from that of strangers. Let us be real, there are still prophets of God even today. The fact that many of them now do the devil's bidding unknowingly does not give us the right to totally rule out the idea of prophets. The spiritual plane is made up of good and bad. Satan and his minions are still on the prowl until their appointed time of being cast into the lake of fire. The onus is on every believer to be discerning. This is why we must be grounded in the Word of Truth, and of His grace. Know the Word of God for yourself. 1 Timothy 4:15, 2 Timothy 2:15. With this said, it is also important to have prophets around you. God may not show a prophet something about someone who is unknown to the prophet. But when you have crossed paths with a prophet, that way God can always give a message to you via that prophet. God's way of sending His Word can be through a warning, encouragement, plans for the future, calling in life, reprove, correction, instructions, etc. 2 Timothy 3:16-17. We know that scriptures were written by God's servants as they heard the voice of the Holy Ghost.

Don't be quick to push away prophecies. It can change your story. God is willing to speak to His people through dreams, visions, and also His prophets. Many can't interpret their dreams and visions, so they cast them off as insignificant. We must be ready to learn. We must also be ready to prove every word we hear from His prophets. I have seen situations change in the lives of many because God's word came for them. Many are going through a labyrinth of issues that they can't even share with anyone. But a word from God will always bring comfort, and a way forward. The opening Scripture saw Jehoshaphat relying in the Lord through His prophet. The Word came, and so did the victory. Think about all the prophets that God gave to the Kings of Israel and his people. If there were no prophets they may never have gotten those victories against heathen nations and tribes. Thank God, there are always men God separates for his people. Everyone may not hear the voice of God, but God's message can always be passed through His servants. Don't follow those that ridicule prophets today. A prophet can bring life and fortune.

Reminder: When Prophet Elijah thought he was the only one left of God's servants, God's reply was that 7,000 of his servants were reserved in the same nation. 1 Kings 19.

Mercy from the Throne of God's Grace:
"Therefore [even] when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He still stayed two days longer in the same place where He was. Then after that interval He said to His disciples, Let us go back again to Judea. The disciples said to Him, Rabbi, the Jews only recently were intending and trying to stone You, and are You [thinking of] going back there again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? Anyone who walks about in the daytime does not stumble, because he sees [by] the light of this world. But if anyone walks about in the night, he does stumble, because there is no light in him [the light is lacking to him]. He said these things, and then added, Our friend Lazarus is at rest and sleeping; but I am going there that I may awaken him out of his sleep."
(John 11:6-11) AMPC)

It is one thing to know or receive God's revelations for what He wants to accomplish through our mortal-bodies here on earth then it is another thing to obtain mercy from God's throne of grace in order to live through the manifestations of such vision or purpose of God for our individual lives no matter the level of our spirituality.

It is one thing to know that *without holiness no human being will enter into the fullness of eternal life in Heaven with The GOD-HEAD* but without *obtaining that dimension of mercy from the throne of God's grace "with boldness", those who claim to be saved will still be struggling with sinful lifestyle and might end their earthly lifestyle in sin without having the opportunity to repent before their biological death*

Those who can come to the throne of God's grace *with boldness* are those who have obtained the mercy/forgiveness/redemption from God through faith in Jesus death on the Cross and His resurrection because "the righteous as bold as a lion" (Prov 28:1) and no matter our *spiritual level* if we fall from grace into any type or quantity of sin, we cannot have the boldness to commune or fellowship with God *without first obtaining forgiveness/mercy for such sin from God according to 1 John 1:9* hence let no human being deceive you that even in your sinfulness, you can be bold in the presence of God.

This entails that there is a dimension or aspect of God's mercy that involves *forgiveness and remission of our sins through faith in the death of Jesus on the Cross and His resurrection* then there is another aspect of God's mercy which we *must obtain from His throne of grace* in order to have grace to *engage in consistent and progressive holiness on earth and life after death*. It is this dimension of mercy that enables any human being who is saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ to become a worthy vessel usable and re-usable by the Holy Spirit to accomplish all the purposes of God for him/her on this earth effortlessly.

It is not in struggling to please God by our human limited resources or by shouting or by trying to compete and compare yourself with other human being or complaining that the standard of God's holiness is too high for any human being to walk in it on earth or by completely submitting to sinful lifestyle on earth while assuming holiness and walking in God's perfect-will on earth is not attainable on earth or by committing sin with impunity while justifying them with our choicest scriptures.

If you want to remain *effective in the purposes of God on earth till your death* then you should willingly remain on the throne of God's grace *obtaining mercy* for each aspect of your life, day, engagements and vocations. The Throne of God's grace is not a physical location or a particular preacher or denomination rather *your heart to heart fellowship with God after you have received Jesus Christ Crucified as the Son of God and your own personal LORD and SAVIOUR*. Just like Moses told God, we will not go anywhere unless your presence goes with us so also as a child of God who has decided to remain on the throne of God's grace, you should not engage in anything even if it was revealed to you by GOD-HIMSELF until you engage HIM on His throne of grace and has obtained mercy for such engagement or revelations.

This is what Jesus did in the bible passage we have above where Lazarus his friend whom he loves so much was reported to be sick, Jesus has already perceived a word of knowledge from His Father that such sickness will lead him to physical death but God's glory will be revealed to bring him back to life through Jesus however Jesus had to wait extra 2-days for the appropriate time to obtain mercy in order to have grace to bring about the physical manifestation of what His Father has revealed to HIM.

The disciples of Jesus were afraid that the Jews who wanted to stone Jesus previously in Judaea will have the opportunity to hurt Him now but Jesus categorizes Himself as a person who walks in the 12-hours of day-light and will never stumble either by being stoned by the Jews or hindered from entering that city or prevented from accomplishing what His Father has revealed to Him about Lazarus because He has *obtained mercy from the throne of God's grace and has grace to help Him in that situation which is a time of need*

However
Jesus also confirms that those *believers or acclaimed believers* who have not obtained mercy from the throne of God's grace for each and every aspect of what God has planned or revealed to them are like those who walk in the 12-dark hours of the day who will definitely stumble which means they will be hindered from entering into the manifestations of what God's purpose or vision in their lives here on earth has in-store for them before their biological death either by their flesh, or satan.

We are not seeking the mercy of men rather the mercy of God and we seek this mercy from His throne of grace but before we seek to obtain this dimension of God's mercy, we must have repented from our sinful lifestyle and obtained salvation through faith in Jesus death on the Cross and His resurrection(for unbelievers in the gospel) while for believers who have recently backslidden into sin, we need to repent from our sinful lifestyle and confess to Jesus Christ whose blood alone has the capacity to cleanse us from *all and every type/depth of unrighteousness* and He is *always eager and ready to restore any believer who backslides or falls from Grace as long as we are ready to repent and confess to HIM then become a worthy vessel for use and re-use in His hands*" (1 John 1:9)

May the Holy Spirit release His mercy upon each and every human being who sincerely desires to serve the true living God who created the Heavens, Earth and under-world such that we shall come to the throne of God's grace with boldness and remaining perpetually on it obtaining mercy and having grace to help for every aspect of our lives each moment and days of our earthly existence in Jesus Name. Amen.

Inheritance of eternal life by Mercy from the throne of God's Grace:

"Peter, an apostle (a special messenger) of Jesus Christ, [writing] to the elect exiles/strangers/aliens of the dispersion scattered (sowed) abroad in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
2 Who were chosen and foreknown by God the Father and consecrated (sanctified, made holy) by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and to be sprinkled with [His] blood: May grace (spiritual blessing) and peace be given you in increasing abundance [that spiritual peace to be realized in and through Christ, freedom from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts].
3 Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)! *By His boundless mercy* we have been *born again to an ever-living hope* through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 *[Born anew] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you,*
5 Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by God’s power through [your] faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time."

Topic: Live in His Bounty ✝️

The Spirit's Word: O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord , ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Psalms 34:8‭-‬10 KJV

Kindly read the opening Scripture more than once. Digest it. It has the solution to what many are challenged with. Many are in lack and want. Even the Bible tells us that the poor will always be here on earth. You don't have to be in that lot. You can actually live in the bounty of our gracious God. We are instructed to taste and see. How to taste and see His goodness is the big question. God is not insecure, neither is He uncertain about His abilities. He can do all things. Let's recall the children of Israel in the wilderness. They ate manna and meat for 40 years in the wilderness, without sowing and reaping. This is reality. God can do all things, and also exceedingly and abundantly beyond all we can ask and think. Ephesians 3:20. Have you been overwhelmed by God yet? Perhaps you've heard how God blessed people financially, and you wonder when it will be your turn, just be in love with God. It's the secret. Remove all guile, pride, offence, unforgivingness, deception, etc., from your heart. Wasn't it the Lord that fed the multitude with miracle bread and fish? He did this twice. John 6, Mark 8, Matthew 14-15. How can we say He was poor, when He did all these things? He even had a treasurer in the person of Judas for helping the poor. John 13:29.

If you would just love God, all it takes is for Him to open your eyes. He doesn't need to rain manna or quails from heaven, neither would He make money miraculously appear in your room. He would open your eyes to see money everywhere you turn. This is a secret many will never understand. The Psalmist said: The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him;... he will shew them his Covenant. Psalms 25:14. To fear God is to love Him wholeheartedly, and also do what He commands. What is this Covenant God wants to show the one who fears and loves Him? But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18. We have to remember God in all we do - in our thoughts, words, and actions. It's a matter of the heart, to first consider God before doing, saying and thinking. To love is to give, and giving means all of you, back to God and your neighbours. If you're not living this sacrificial life everyday, then it's still a mirage.

Reminder: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:38 KJV.

"Jesus answered and said unto him, “Verily, verily I say unto thee, unless a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said unto Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5 Jesus answered, “Verily, verily I say unto thee, unless a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." (John 3:3-6 )

Are you born-again in Christ Jesus Crucified ?

What does it mean to be born-again in Christ Jesus Crucified ?

1. Hear and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified, Resurrected and Glorified.

2. Become convicted as a sinner because you inherited sin's nature(the flesh) from Adam and your own personal sins by the Holy Spirit through the gospel that you heard.

3. Repentance from sin's nature and sinful lifestyle.

4. Believe in Jesus Christ death and resurrection as your own remission/atonement for sin's nature and sinful lifestyle

5. Decide to live only in obedience to Jesus Christ teachings by praying for the release of God's mercy and grace from His throne of Grace each day and moments of your life even as you engage in personal daily bible studies and fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

6. Submit to water baptism if you have never been baptized before as an outward sign of the new creation life that you have received in Christ.

Topic: Knowing What To Do ✝️

The Spirit's Word: Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.”
Matthew 17:27 NKJV


There was a time Jesus and Peter were in Capernaum, and some tax collectors came for their taxes. Obviously, there was no money on them (Judas was the treasurer). Our Lord is flawless, and wiser than the wisest. He already knew what to do. How did He know that there would be money in the mouth of the fish that Peter takes up first? He was in constant communion with the Father. He testified this of Himself when He said:... I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
John 8:28. He lived in perfect obedience to the Father. He also saw the Father in action daily as He separated Himself very early in the mornings to pray and seek the face of God. We would do well if we lived this kind of life. The Father wants to show us things, secrets that are hid from all the spirits in the world. There are deep things hidden in God. We may try to reason out many things, but man's wisdom is altogether nothing compared to that of God. Remember what Jesus said: I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12. You can know so much.

Studying the Bible is an excellent thing, no doubt, but it doesn't replace hearing from God. We can get all the head knowledge on the Word. However, there is a difference between knowledge and revelation. Many have the whole Bible upstairs, but have never heard God speak to them. Hearing the voice of God is not rocket science. The Bible tells us: the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
John 10:3‭-‬4. The sheep hears the voice of its Shepherd. If you haven't been hearing the voice, why not ask the Father to open your ears. Spiritual deafness is a disability, and thus, the work of the enemy. Don't give it a rest until you hear the voice of your Heavenly Father. You need to push through with prayers, studying more and more of the word, fasting, and being quiet before God. It takes perseverance also to hear from Him for He is a King. Patience is manifestation of peace. His voice comes with peace and stillness. Hearing from God will definitely put you above mediocrity and cluelessness. He knows all things.

Reminder: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isaiah 30:21 KJV

Topic: Tabernacle of David ✝️

The Spirit's Word: After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
Acts 15:16‭-‬17 KJV


The above Scripture was quoted by Apostle James. The Apostles were just coming to terms with the idea of salvation to the gentiles. The tabernacle of David is about the Covenant God made with him, which is fulfilled in Christ. Jesus was the son of David, after the flesh, but Lord of David after the Spirit. Luke 20:41-44. It is not a physical building. We are the temple of God. 1 Corinthians 6:19. Those buildings of old were only a shadow of what is to come. Colossians 2:17. Let's not get carried away. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Covenant God made with all the patriachs of old. He also had this to say: “believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 4:21‭-‬24. This is why spirituality in the new Covenant is not a light thing. Without it, you can't go far with God.

The original prophecy can be found in Amos chapter nine. It was called the Tent of David because King David appointed in it singers to worship God night and day. Now that Jesus has fulfilled the rites of sacrifice in the temple with respect to oblation, atoning with the blood of animals, etc., what we now have left is to offer sacrifice of praise unto God. Hebrews 13:15. Deeper union with God calls for a sacrifice of self. Romans 12:1. David was a king who praised God like no other, and God dwells in the praises of Israel, both Jews and gentiles. Psalm 22:3. David's tabernacle is one of praise, worship and thanksgiving. Jesus finished the works of our redemption, and so, sits on the right of God. Romans 8:34. A clear understanding of what this means will guide you into that same rest. The purpose of the Father is to appoint unto all His chosen ones - that we also enter into the same rest that Christ attained. This rest will never come without death to self and yielding to Christ. When these are in place, Christ will raise you up from the grave, and give you the same authority and peace He received from the Father.

Reminder: For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Hebrews 4:8‭-‬11 KJV

Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 11:20pm On Oct 05
something about studying the word of God, meditating on the word of God and evangelism:
When you pray and ask God through His Holy Spirit to reveal the mercy and grace of Jesus personality as a Christian or even an unbeliever before you study any part of the holy bible especially the new testament

You will be granted access into the whole truth that Jesus Christ Crucified is the Son of God and the only means of human salvation.

You will discover the words that *Jesus used to answer the questions that were arising from the thoughts in the heart of the people around Him* whether *the argumentative jews/scribes/pharisees* or *the crowd following HIM* or *His own believing disciples*. This will help you to gain access into the thoughts/premonitions in the hearts of people around you made clearer by the Holy Spirit revelations to you and attend to them just as the Holy Spirit gives you guidance like Jesus Christ responded, where the jews/scribes/pharisees represents *unbelievers in Jesus in our days*, the crowds represents the set of people who are *indecisive about the gospel and those looking for dramas, miracles, stage performance and benefits from the gospel that they are undecided about*, and the disciples represents both *those who genuinely believe and those who claim to believe in the gospel*. This will also help you *to have access to the right words with which to deal with the questions* your mind will often bring up to you about your faith in Jesus or about any aspect of human living.

You will also discover how Jesus responded to the external words, questions or behaviors of the 3-different categories of people around HIM which the Holy Spirit will also use to help you respond to these category of persons in our present generation.

You will also discover the appropriate words, questions, prayers, attitudes and relationship between Jesus, His Father and the Holy Spirit which will help you to gain access into the right words for dialoguing with God in your heart/mind or vocally as well as when to ask questions, when to pray and how to pray to the Father through faith in Jesus, when to utter a decree as the Holy Spirit prompts you and the best way to relate with the GOD-HEAD(Father, Son and Holy Spirit) now dwelling eternally within you *with or without any human support/teaching*

You will also discover that when you obtain mercy from the throne of God's grace to evangelize whether on the streets, internets, social-media, house-to-house, offices, schools, industries, recreational-parks e.t.c., there are words or utterances or explanations that come out of your mouth which you never knew before that moment of engaging a particular person in evangelism which answers some questions you have been asking God personally or clarifies doubts you have about a particular doctrine/teaching in God's word hence those who do not engage in evangelism are having stunted growth in their faith because of these accumulated unanswered questions in their mind which can only be answered by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit utterance at the point of evangelism thus Jesus declared "But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given you within that [very] hour; for it is not you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you." (Matthew 10:19-20 AMP)

Therefore, if you are an unbeliever who is willing to find out whether the God of the bible is REAL....

I encourage you to ask the God of the bible to reveal HIMSELF to you before you open its content to study each time and I will encourage you to start studying from the Gospel of St. John chapter 1 and make progress from 1-chapter to the next chapter-2 and so on then after going through the whole 21-chapters of St. John's gospel go back to St. Matthews gospel and move from there through to the book of revelation.....

As long as you asked the God of the bible to reveal HIMSELF to you before you open its content to study each moment, by the time you get to the last verse of revelation (Revelation 22:21), The Holy Spirit will convince you that Jesus is the Son of God and the only means of human salvation hence also convict you that you are a sinner that needs to be saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ Crucified.

For believers who have unbelievers in the gospel who are willing to find out the truth about the God of the bible and they are willing to search out the truth for themselves, I will encourage you use advise them to go through the new testament scriptures prayerfully seeking to receive the revelation of the God of the bible in the manner stated above.

For Christians who do not have the desire to study the word of God at-all for each 24-hours or study without commitment or study only at public gatherings of believers or study only psalms for a particular prayer-point or study only the passages given to them by their pastors/priests/fellowship-leaders, you can see what you are missing and the reason why you feel empty, lonely, bored, depressed, frustrated, unable to answer peculiar questions bothering your mind for long now, attracted to sin or under the control of sin even after so many disciplines, fasting and prayers, confession of the same sin over and again to God yet you claim to be a believer in the gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified but the word of God says "We are *born-again by the incorruptible seed of the living word of God* which abides and lives forever not by a corruptible word which does not last forever" (1 Peter. 1:23) hence it is the *quantity and the quality(doctrinal correctness of the gospel you have heard)* of the seed of the word of God which is active in your life as a Christian-per-time will determine whether you are *genuinely born-again in Christ Jesus Crucified* which gives you *the capacity(mercy and grace obtained from the throne of God's grace) to remain incorruptible* from sinful enticements, attractions, thoughts, temptations, imaginations and circumstances around you in this present generation.

For those who are shying away from *vocal-evangelism/witnessing* as a Christian, you can also see why some of the questions of your mind about God, faith and relationship with God and other human beings have not been answered. Do not shy away from vocal-evangelism any more rather pray to God for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit according to Act.1:8 and obtain mercy for yourself and those who will hear you such that you will have grace to release the word of God in such a manner that yourself and those who listen to you will obtain mercy to repent genuinely unto salvation in Jesus Christ Crucified and mercy to grow in unwavering righteousness for those who already believe in Christ.

The Holy Spirit is inviting us back to our first love with HIM in an unbroken fellowship with HIM in personal daily consistent and progressive study of our holy bible as well as evangelism/witnessing.

It is one thing to know about this outcry of the Holy Spirit for us to return to a fellowship with HIM in our daily personal bible studies and evangelism/witnessing then it is another thing to obtain mercy from the throne of His grace in order to have grace to obey this instruction.

Father, we come to your throne of grace seeking to obtain mercy in order to have grace to fellowship deliberately, consistently and progressively with Your GOD-HEAD in your written and revealed word in the holy bible as well as winning souls through witnessing as you instructed in this time much more than we have ever done before through the unlimited manifestations of Your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name. Amen.

Topic: Push the Button ✝️

The Spirit's Word: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7 KJV



Have you ever seen a safety or emergency button? Today, there is no corporation or infrastructure without a safety system. Spiritually there is such a thing as a safety button. It is nothing but the Word. The Word is the arsenal we use against the devil. Please note, it is the Word of God, and not your own words. Don't try to manufacture some lexicons that sound scriptural, based on your own wisdom. It won't work against the devil. The Word is the sword, hammer, fire and truth we are equipped with to call Satan's bluff. Yes, call his bluff. He is a stunt figure. As long as you are a child of God, he has no power over you. We have been delivered from his domain. Just remain submitted to God, and His Word. That's what the opening verse tells us. Satan flees at the Word, and the blood of the Lamb. Revelation 12:11. Nothing else on earth has power over him. Jesus overcame by His blood, and has now given us the same victory through faith in Him. Jesus resisted him with the Word. Don't fear his tactics and schemes. All you have to do when you perceive his motions, is to give the Word to Him. You've to learn how to address the devil, and not just God. This is not prayer. We pray to God, and intercede for all men. As for Satan, cast him out.

One time, I thought the devil had made a mess of all that God was doing in my life. The things I saw brought fear and panic. Then the Holy Ghost spoke to me saying, "there is no devil that can stop the work of God in your life" . What a comfort that the Comforter gives. From that day, He taught me how to push the button. Once I see, or hear, or perceive the movement of the enemy, I just push the button. You've to know the Word without carrying the Bible here and there, because you need to speak the Word always. The enemy is a stunt man. He only needs your cooperation and permission to operate. Don't let him. Tell him what is written, and he flees. Use the blood against him, and he will disappear. David told us: The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places. Psalms 18:45. When God created the earth, He gave man only, dominion over it and all its content. Since the devil wants to remain on earth, dominate him as often as you see fit. You will remain in fear as long as you don't learn or study the Word. The Word is your armour.

Reminder: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

Topic: Light of Men ✝️

The Spirit's Word: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1:1‭, ‬4‭-‬5 KJV

I believe every Christian understands the concept of darkness, as well as light. Darkness is anything evil, while light is of God. What is the light of men? Apostle John talks about the light of men, and he related it to the life of God which is in the Word. Jesus stands in between the seven lamp stands in Revelation chapter one. We were told that the lamp stands represent the seven churches (verse 20). We are the lamps. Recall the tabernacle in the Holy place was set a lamp stand with seven candlesticks. God commanded the priest to ensure the light is always burning, both of the altar of sacrifice, and the candlesticks. The light must never be put out. Eli committed a great sin by ignoring this commandment. He was punished for this by death, including the death of his sons. The Word of God is our light. We must never take the word for granted. It is not a once in while thing we pick up when we feel like. David said: For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. Psalms 18:28. If we don't want the darkness of this world to have access into our lives, we must continually feed on the Word.

The Word is an illuminator. When you constantly get the Word into your spirit, darkness can't have any advantage, because light is far greater than darkness. Devils will only stand afar off. We must not joke with this light. John calls it the light of men. This translates to what Jesus said, when he called us the light of the world. The world is a dark place, and no man can survive or navigate without this light. You are a burning and shining light when you have the Word of life in your born again spirit. Job also attested to this truth when he lamented: ...his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;
Job 29:3. Don't let your light be out or dim. The more of the Word you take in, and by the help of the Holy Ghost, ministering to you, the more your light shines. John the baptist was a burning and shining light. John 5:35. Perhaps, you are yet to receive infilling of the Holy Ghost, just ask the Lord to baptise you. It's a free gift. This world is too wicked to be without this light. Let the Holy Ghost show you how you can brighten your light, so you can be a beacon and succour in this wicked world.

Reminder: Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
Leviticus 24:2 KJV

Topic: No Reputation ✝️

The Spirit's Word: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Philippians 2:7 KJV


For you to be truly humble, you have really died. Our Lord made Himself of no reputation. He didn't care what they called Him. If you still look to people to call you sir, ma, father, mother, mentor, daddy, etc., then there is still something there in your flesh that wants to be exalted. Whenever I read a verse that talks about Jesus' display of humility, I get excited every time. It gives me hope that I can actually live that kind of life. It is the way forward, and also the only path to the heart of God. Don't live a life that can still feel shame or embarrassment. You're only answerable to God. If people mock or despise you, don't lay it to heart. We only owe people love and no more than that. Romans 13:8. Jesus washed the feet of all his disciples as an act of service. We are commanded to do likewise. The summary of it all is that, we ought to think more of others and less of self. Is this to say we should not take good care of self? On the contrary. He that has died to self has handed over his or her life to God. God knows how to take care of His treasures.

Reminder: Reputation keeps you small in God's eyes while humility is the reverse.

Topic: Spirit of Righteousness ✝️

The Spirit's Word: And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Romans 8:10 KJV


All throughout Scriptures, we see the Holy Ghost manifest in many attributes. He is the Spirit of Holiness, the Spirit of faith, the Spirit of boldness, the Spirit of Life, the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of love, the Spirit of Power, the Spirit of a sound mind, the Spirit of burning, the Spirit of judgment, the Spirit of grace, the Spirit of supplication, the Spirit of righteousness, and so many more. The same way God revealed His different attributes per time to the children of Israel, that's the same way the Holy Ghost manifests himself to us under the New Covenant. For this reason, we must study the Word to know how to activate His manifold personalities. The above verse tells us that Christ in us means the body is dead to sin, and the Holy Spirit is life because of righteousness, which is the free gift we received. Romans 5:17. Our own righteousness can never suffice to receive anything from God. We can only build upon what we receive as a free gift. What does this mean? You are made to reign in life by this gift of righteousness. Death, sickness, defeat, failure or poverty should be far from your domain as long as you stand in faith.

The Bible tells us that God's throne consist of righteousness and justice. Psalm 89:14. When you hear righteousness and justice, it means to rule or reign. For this reason, they are the habitations of His heavenly throne. What are we to reign over? All that negates and contradicts God's will for His children. It means darkness and its works must be subdued. Remember, it's not your righteousness. Your righteousness can't even help you reign over the smallest matter because darkness reigns everywhere except where the light of God is. And God's light can only proceed from His Word, and this is the Word of His righteousness. Hebrews 5:13. Jesus manifests Himself as the Word of God when He is out to judge and conquer his enemies. The Bible says: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Revelation 19:11. God's righteousness is given to us to judge and dominate the forces of darkness. However, if you live in sin, your mind and the devil will give you no rest. So stay off sin.

Reminder: This gift of righteousness works only by faith. We must build up our faith with the Word of Truth, and His Grace.

Topic: Strongholds ✝️

The Spirit's Word: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holdswink Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:4‭-‬5 KJV

Paul was writing to believers when he talked about strongholds. It does not apply to the unbeliever. Why? The unbeliever is a prisoner of Satan and darkness, in his body, soul and spirit. A stronghold is not a sin. Sin is what it is, but a stronghold is any lie the enemy makes you believe. You may believe a lie innocently, Satan doesn't care about that. The dictionary defines stronghold as a place built to withstand attack; a fortress. It is again defined as a place of domination by, or refuge or survival of, a particular group or idea. Satan wants to remain in your life by any means. An example of a stronghold is to believe we can't live above sin as Christians. Are you surprised? The Bible tells us that we have died to sin, and so we aren't not supposed to have anything to do with it. We ought to seek the things that are above where Christ is seated. Colossians 3:1-5. Satan is the one who plants these opinions and lies in your mind. He can only live in you through strongholds. For this reason, Jesus told us the prince of this world has nothing in him.

The Bible says the strangers shall fade away. Psalms 18:45. These strangers or demons can only stay in closed places or shadows. And so, we must continually renew our minds. Romans 12:2. Don't give the enemy a habitable space in your life. You are the house of God. When you find yourself uncertain about anything, it is wisdom to go into the Word. Don't live your life based on what an article in the magazine says. The media is full of lies, and many unwittingly broadcast false messages and propaganda to instill fear. Things you have been doing, or eating, or drinking for more than twenty years without a problem, and then, one unfounded or misguided report starts to circulate and majority believes it. The Bible says all meat is accepted as long as it is received with thanks. People have taken ill because of something they read on the Internet. Avoid all unfounded information. No science has been verified. That's why they keep postulating year after year. Only the Word of God is sure fire. Let God's Word be your defence against the lies of men and devils. It's a pity if you believe science more than God's Word.

Reminder: Use the Word of God in condemning any lie you may have believed hitherto.
