My Faith Says I Can and I CAN

NOW faith is (Heb 11;1)
Faith never takes no for an answer. Faith, real faith says “Yes”
Faith says YES to God’s Direction, God’s mission and God’s calling.
Faith does not look at the bigness of the task, rather it looks to the bigness of one’s God.
Real faith requires a MIRACLE step into a miracle future.
…and that’s always NOW.
Faith is not you doing God a favour.
Faith is you doing yourself a favour.
You owe it to yourself to step out and walk in faith.
Faith don’t benefit God, faith benefits You.
…and that’s always NOW.
Faith does not consider the odds or the physical evidence,
The lack or one’s inability, rather it looks to God’s Ability and the bigger picture.
If God can, I Can. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me for the task assigned me.
Therefore I am always in possession of this supernatural faith, and being found ready at all times,
I’ll give it a GO..
…and that’s always NOW.

Stir Things Up

This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. (2 Tim 1;6)NLT
“fan into flames the gift” (ESV, NIV,), “keep ablaze the gift” (HCSB), “rekindle the gift” (CSB, NRSV).
Light that fire in you.
Start an inferno.
Get yourself up and going again.
Activate the revolutionary in you.
Turn your blog post into fire.
Paul.

Breaking Ungodly Mindsets and Traditions

Breaking Ungodly Mindsets and Traditions

Breaking The belief that Prosperity is Worldly.
Let me ask you how many missionaries can you support when you are broke?
How many churches can you build when you are broke or how many ministries can you support when you are broke?

I’m convinced that our poverty mentality is a hindrance to us achieving our dreams and God’s too. If I believe God’s word then that’s what I am bound to conform to, even if it stretches me and conflicts with my culture, faith or my present lifestyle. For example (Provides 28;20) “A faithful man will abound with blessings,” thats sounds like God’s will to me, but read the rest …”But he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.” It’s not saying I cant abound but it is saying don’t run to it… let me add this, don’t run to it but let it run to you. or don’t run to get rich let God bless you his way.

Here’s another Promise; …”thou shalt make thy way prosperous and have good success.” This too is followed by a condition. “The book of the law shall not depart from out of thy mouth and in therein thou shalt meditate day and night” (Josh 1;8).Here it gives a law of success, If you’re a businessman work the law and the law will bless you. If God has set you in business work the law and God will bless you too.

Here’s another promise… “He(the godly man) shall be like a tree planted by thrivers of water that bringeth in fruit in his season, his leaf shall not wither and whatsoever he doth shall prosper” (Psalm 1;1-3). This too sounds like god talking and wanting to bless us however there’s a a condition. Dont walk in the cousell of the ungodly… Bottom line, don’t blame the government, don’t blame the prosperity preacher, don’t blame your heritage, home, parents or environment for your lack, just ask yourself, am I obeying God. what truth or tradition am I planted in? Is it promoting my promotion or is it hindering my success? If we are not blessed then its not God who is keeping stuff from us, its us keeping stuff from us.

EVERY BLESSING.
Paul.
I shall have plenty in 2020

20 Questions for Those Who Say Church Buildings Are Not Important

There is big discussion today on the need for going to a physical building. As a result of this corona shutdown many are saying there is no need to go to a physical building called the church as we are the church. Here are some questions I am asking for those who are teaching that we don not need to go to church

1. Since we are the church, and now that you have stopped going to a physical building called a church are you now doing more praying at home than you you would be at church?

2. Are you listening to more sermons and doing more bible studies at home now that you no longer attend a physical building?

3. Do you edify more people now that you now longer connect to others outside your home. Since the gifts of the Holy Ghost are given to all for the benefit of all, do you find God using you in more gifts now you are at home?

4. Do you pray as much now as you used to, while you were at church?.

5. Have you become more passionate about the kingdom and doing a work for the lord now that you no longer go to a physical building and meet with others who have a godly passion and mission also?

6. When you went to church, it allowed you to escape the house and get into anther environment, this is healthy and necessary. Now that you are a home can you tell me why these essential social activities are now no longer important?

7. Do you pray for you pastor or has you views of leadership changed now that you no longer believe in church in a building?

8. What would you say to those who in China who would love the opportunity to worship in a building freely and openly?

9. Are there any heart issues that you may have that brought you to the decision that church buildings are unnecessary.

10. What about the climate? are not building a necessity for us where rain is a regular occurance?

11. Can buildings be a witness?

12. What did Jesus say about fellowship and going to the temple? Did he go to the temple.

13. As one who desires to be a minister of the Lord, do you think that a ministry building is important or are you able to use your home as office, media centre, payer centre, products or shop base, counselling room, healing centre etc? if a ministry centre is needed then why not a church building?

14. Do you find that your home is better place for the corporate gathering of prayer? The church was a place where you had no distractions, could make a bigger noise, had all the musical instruments and could invite many people. have these.  “liberties” now been lifted now that you have prayed in the home?

15.Are buildings a witness to the glory of God or not?

16. Why Did God instruct his people to build a sanctuary?

17.How Did God tell them to regard his dwelling place? (Lev 19;30)

18.How did Christ manifest his regard for the sanctuary of God’s house (Mark 11;15-17).

19. If God is against buildings then why did God allow Solomon to build a temple? Surely he could have bypassed the tabernacle and temple.

20. What about mass gatherings for revivals, crusades gospel concerts, do you enjoy these events or should they be avoided. What alternatives have young that you do not thing buildings are important.

What exactly must I believe about God in order to be saved?

Q. Do I need to believe all the things in the bible in order to be saved, I mean I can believe some things and not another, further I understand some things but there are many ore things I do not understand. what role does buy understanding then play in getting this salvation,

A. Salvation is always connected to Jesus. It is he that leads us to God. Jesus is the invisible God made visible and it’s in believing Jesus that we can get to understand and know God.

No man understands God without being born of his Spirit and having his Spirit for it is the Spirit that leads is to all truth and it is the Spirit that reveals Jesus.So Jesus simplified faith or the act of faith that is required for salvation, by commanding us to believe in him..

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: (John7;38,39).

1.To believe in Jesus is to believe that he is
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11;6) This means he exists. Do you believe that Jesus exists? Do you believe that he lives? Do you belie that he is who he says he is, Father, Saviour, friend, healer, deliverer, Lord and God, the eternal life? Do you believe in Jesus, then you truly believe in God.

2.To believe in Jesus is to believe that he offers eternal life.
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him John (3;36).

3. To believe in Jesus is to accept him and his gift of eternal life
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, (John 11;25)

4.To believe in Jesus is to believe in his name
“He [Jesus] came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” Those Who “received him” who “believed in his name”  We note in the acts that baptism was always performed in the name of Jesus, telling us that waling on Jesus did bring us salvation. for that is who he is salvation.

Listen to John 2:23–25, “Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing, But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man.” 

He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3;18)

5.To believe in Jesus is to be baptised
He that believeth
and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned (Mark 16;16)
The believers were and are baptised ones. those baptised into his name. (John3;18).

Establishing Kingship in our Cities

Let us understand one important attribute of the Lord. That he is omnipresent. that is he cannot be absent or elsewhere. He is present and ever-present, a faithful friend in a time of need. Lo “I am with you he said, even until the end oft he age,” then he said “I will come again and be with you.” He did come! Only a fool would say he lied. Only a heretic would deny his presence. The teachings of John Derby are not greater than Jesus, Derby told us of trinitarianism and dispensationalism which places God and Jesus and The Holy Ghost into three different times spans throughout history. This is folly, pure folly. Derby did not understand God’s oneness. GOD CANNOT BE DIVIDED. How do you divide ONE? Further God is whatever he is and every thing that he possibly could be, in every generation and millennium that there is. He is not the king coming back, he is king before he gets here. He has always been king, the eternal king, he has never vacated his throne, he has always ruled. The Apostle Paul cleared this matter up when he stated in his letter to Timothy these worlds. “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever.” (1Tim 1;17). Jesus is king in every generation. 

The idea of Jesus coming back to be king is inadvertently a denial of his rule and reign now in the church the believer. He rules is us, his kingdoms not of their world but in his people in this world. His city is not in a physical place in Jerusalem but in us the new Jerusalem. If it was his will to live in a physical temple made with hands he would have done so when he was on earth. what makes you think he will build a temple when he’s on earth a second time? No, you are the temple of the living God. God dwells in You. a temple not made with hands a temple that cannot be destroyed.

The danger of not living in the kingdom has serious consequences including the fact that we who are kings become subjects to this age, and servants this world. For if we do not know our place in the kingdom now, then are we prone to succumb to every whim and fancy of the secular governments and its agencies and be the tail and not the head. forever a mockery and a byword to those around us who hear our double standard message of one moment declaring our power and God’s rule and in another moment being slaves and subjects to mere man and his carnal rules and ways.

You are a king. Isn’t it time we took what was ours and enforced the kingdom her in our land and most importantly in our lives. We can no longer declare we have authority and live as the scum of the earth. Rise up. You are a King in God’s kingdom.

Be Jesus To a Lazarus Generation

Many folks start their path by following a religion in a belief that a religion will give them the truth about life and God. However truth is a person, and that person is Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul met God and asked the question “who are you Lord?” To which God replied, “I am Jesus!” HIS NAME MEANS SALVATION We can know everything about many things yet know nothing about God. The solution, know jesus first! He alone, the man, the creator is the way the life and the truth.

Salvation is a person. Kingdom is a dimension
Life is a person. Heaven is a dimension.

KEY 1: Its easy for us to see as earthly and heavenly that which God intends to be personally.

Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life.” Life is a person. the person of life. He is life and has it too give. When Lazarus fell ill, his sisters sent a message to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” When Jesus heard the news, he waited two more days before going to Lazarus’ hometown of Bethany. Jesus knew that he would do a great  MIRACLE and bring a great REVELATION to the family there, and for that to happen, time had too take its path. Neither miracles nor revelation comes in a hurry, they come by revelation.When Jesus arrived in Bethany, Lazarus had already been dead and in the tomb for four days. When Martha discovered that Jesus was on his way, she went out to meet him. “Lord,” she said, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

Jesus told Martha, “Your brother will rise again.” But Martha thought he was talking about the final resurrection of the dead.

Jesus said I am the resurrection. Martha was looking for a resurrection as a big an event. Jesus came along and said I am the resurrection, which is a person.

 She believed in events to come, she did not know Jesus as the event. MANY TODAY are looking for future events which they think are biblical, forgetting that Jesus is the final event the more sure prophecy. Everything climaxes with his coming and what’s more he has come to us and is in us and said he will abide with us forever. How much more should we then experience the supernatural! Resurrection is a person, resurrections when the person of Jesus comes to you, then you are resurrected.

Many are denying the resurrection by denying JESUS himself as the resurrection!

When Jesus came to you in the new birth you were buried through baptism and were resurrected with the Holy Ghost our of your watery grave and out of your death bed of being dead in trespasses and sins.

Death does not come to us, life does. We are not waiting for the kingdom to come, we are already in it! When we are born-again of water and Spirit we enter it. Isn’t it time we wee a kingdom people manifesting kingdom glory and preaching a kingdom Jesus. Maybe the kingdom to come is you! Pray this: God let your kingdom come in me. God let me live the kingdom, let me be like you and speak to the dead, those dead in trespasses and sins, those in another world a world of carnality death and decay. Be Jesus is a Lazarus Generation that is waiting for signs. Be Jesus, you be the event others need called revolution.

I Don’t Want to be a Waster Do You?

The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting, But diligence is man’s precious possession. (Proverbs 12;27).

A hunter in Alaska, living off the grid, winter is edging itself in and his stocks are low. He needs to prepare himself for winter so he gathers his gear, and wanders out looking for his game. Tho days of hunting he is hungry and tiring in the hunt. He is nowhere as near as catching his prey let alone tracking it. Finally after three he spots his prey takes aim and takes it down. He approaches it, looks at it and sighs in disappointment. It could have been bigger! and rather than taking it home and roasting it he abandons it and wanders once more in the wilderness looking for more.

How many of us are like that? Men are hunters and have been so since the days of Cain. We hunt women when we are young, we hunt for business deals when we want money, we hunt for clothes when we are naked and hunt jobs when we are unemployed. Men are hunters by nature.

The danger in the hunt is that we roast not what we took in hunting. The hunt is thrilling but the cooking well thats a little less exciting, but necessary if we are to make full use of our season and time. We spend countless days even years looking for the things that matter and after catching what went looking for abandoned it because we thought we could get better? Let me apply this hunting scene to our every day lives. God gives us a platform and we go after our prey. We find it a business idea, a book, a song title, a sermon message,  we catch it, but fail to “roast it” or take it and make it valuable to us, because we are always catching and leaving, running off looking for the better when we could have roasted the best. and the reasons this effort is required, creativity and patience in order to roast you meal and make it something that it was not when you first caught it.

Every thing God sets on our table is a gift, we should acknowledge it as from him. I owe it to him to d something with the gift he has given me, the tools he has provided me with and the challenge he has set before me. God I don’t want to be a waster.

I don’t want to see something as nothing when to you it is full of possibility.  God help me see my game!

What you caught in the field  could be a meal on someones plate. Your idea could mean someone else prosperity. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS to make something out of that which God has already given you and put into your hand

Maybe God has placed a BUSINESS IDEA or DREAM or MINISTRY in your spirit. Spend those hours that are necessary in “working it through” roast it, work with it, until you can eat it or throw it in the freezer for your winter time. Who knows the potential of the catch informs of you. It could feed you in your darkest moment.
