Through whose “eyes”?

Humans see the LORD GOD (and circumstances) from two different perspectives; JESUS or SATAN

Through JESUS (The Way, Truth & Life) eyes, we see JEHOVAH for who He truly is….and through SATAN (the deceiver, killer & destroyer) eyes, we see JEHOVAH ‘negatively’…for who He is not.

Everything GOD created is “good”…even Satan was created “good” until he chose to become “evil”… and GOD (who is LOVE personified) couldn’t just destroy him (for “reasons” which you and I will have to make it to heaven to ask GOD for if we want to become privy to it)

A mother cannot erase the fact that she gave birth to her son who later became a hardened criminal or worst still… a serial killer…
…How much more GOD the ONLY perfect ONE denying He created evil → Satan. Isaiah 45:7

Just know that when you see JEHOVAH as “heartless, bad, non-existing, uncaring, unloving, name it”….. the devil is in control of your perspective at that moment…
…And when you see JEHOVAH as loving, caring, faithful, awesome, kind (even in adverse situations), Jesus→the Way, Truth & Life is in charge of your (inner visuals) perspective at that moment.

Shalom!

GRACED.

Gen 3:16-19 → Curse: 1st Adam (Physical)
John 10:1-18 → Grace: 2nd Adam; JESUS (Spiritual)

2 Corinthians 4:15-18 →Not under the curse anymore but under Grace.

1 Corinthians 15:21-22 →”Alive” in Christ now, NOT “dead” in Adam again.

From all these, we can note that the LAW deals with the “physical” while GRACE deals with the “spiritual” (Romans 7:22-25)

Furthermore, it is expedient we note here that “serving GOD” is a “mind” thing; on a spiritual NOT physical plane. So we shouldn’t give Satan the “power” to make us feel useless or not up to standard each time our flesh (physical plane) derails.
Little wonder, Jesus said in Matt 5:20-28 that the “sin” starts from the heart (mind) and NOT when it’s being acted out in the physical plane…

…But should all these now serve as an excuse to SIN willingly and at ease? (Romans 6:1-2) NO!…because Romans 8:1-14 (emphasis on 13 & 14) went on to further explain how WE (believers) can “conquer” and rule over our “physical plane”→(flesh demands which leads to SIN) by simply fulfilling our spiritual demands first. Matt 6:33
All these, I believe is the SECRET to living a “righteous” life; “Mortifying the deeds of the body via the Spirit”.

Remember: JESUS promised The Holy Spirit who is to come guide us into all TRUTH and also comfort us. John 16:7-14
#Pray earnestly that The Holy Spirit take charge of your life. Hunger and thirst for HIM and you’ll surely be filled.

Study GOD’S WORDS and OBEY HIM. Shalom!

REPENT OF YOUR “GRAVEN IMAGES”.

The Israelite believed GOD then through Moses (who they can see); their “belief” wasn’t independent, it had a dependent factor → ‘Moses’… Goes to show that the Israelite never really believed in GOD…guess that’s why they went on to construct a golden calf (which they can see) when Moses was nowhere to be found…Exodus 32:1

This is same way most believers’ faith hang on “corruptible” men OR images (different faces of “Christ” in a framed pix or His statues) Romans 1:20-23. It is only a few that have an “independent” faith in GOD which came to via their “relationship” with GOD(Matt 5:6) or their ordeal in life; testimonies and miracles.

THE COMMAND IS CLEAR →  “Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:” ~  Deuteronomy 5:8. Read Leviticus 26:1 for more emphasis.

 

Acts 17:29-31

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.”

 

 Romans 12:2

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

BE NOT CONFORMED INTO SLAVERY (demonic mind control); BE TRANSFORMED INTO A FREE PERSON. John 8:32

Study The LORD God’s WORDS and OBEY HIM.

Shalom!

FEAR GOD.

 Hosea 4:6
    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

The “Pornography” companies are becoming very “cunning” in their (evil) “marketing strategies”. All they do now is tag their “wares” online with titles that will arouse the masses curiosity; “prophet caught with a married woman”, “bankers caught pants down”, “leaked sex tapes of so, so, so, and so”, “pastor caught in the act”, “nude pictures revealed”, “two children caught in the act”, etc and before you know it, everyone is clicking and even “sharing” thus promoting pornography and helping these “evil agents” spread their evil.

 Proverbs 8:9    
    They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

It’s quite amazing and at the same time very sad that when a Godly message or video is uploaded on the internet, “believers” rarely spread such but when gossips filled with back-biting and “explicit content” videos are uploaded; it gets shared with the speed of lightning.
May God in His infinite mercies remove as much “shells” blocking people’s eyes from seeing as He can remove before ‘that day’ finally arrives in Jesus Name. Amen.

Gen 3:10 “And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” Proverbs 9:10, Proverbs 1:7, Psalms 111:10.
No wonder many “believer” lack wisdom; the “fear” factor is gone because the devil has successfully brainwashed them by twisting “2 Timothy 1:7” around and saying they ought not to fear GOD.

The “serpent” is still using “Eve” to get “Adam” to fall. Look around people, “Eve” is going NUDE [indirectly telling GOD to take his covering (coats of skin) back – Gen 3:21] which is negatively affecting “Adam” who is forced to look at her nakedness and then commit SIN.
Take note “Adam” – Men; there are very few “Prov 31:10-31” ‘Eve’ – Women, BUT very many “Prov 6:24-26 (Ecclesiastes 7:26)” ‘Eve’ out there. Be watchful, be vigilant.

Matthew 15:16    
    And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

Most believers have not yet started SEEING, they are yet to understand and know the “great” importance of The Bible (WORD) they have with them. They are yet to know that The Bible is the “believer’s manual” to see beyond the devil’s cunning tactics in this end times and scale through. This is where GOD’s Mercy and Grace and Spirit come into play; enables you SEE beyond the “Letters”. [Zechariah 4:6, Hebrews 4:16, 2 Corinthians 3:6]
Please pray for divine sight “believers”. Pray that your eyes be opened. [Ephesians 1:17-19, 1 Corinthians 14:20]

 Proverbs 10:13    
    In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
Most “believers” actually needs to be beaten with the “rod” of trials, hardship, and persecutions before they can understand certain things. It is with the help of this rod that many still stand in the Faith, if not they would have been carried away also by the vanity of this world.

Colossians 2:1-3 “For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

The end is here and the kingdom of darkness is striving hard to get in more souls and succeeding at it while the “believers” who ought to be striving hard also to get in more souls into God’s kingdom and not allow those already on God’s side to be stolen by these evil ones are either distracted, lackadaisical, lax or being ‘roped in'(conquered) also. #SMH#

 Luke 10:2
    Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

“Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather FEAR HIM WHICH IS ABLE TO DESTROY BOTH SOUL AND BODY IN HELL”Matthew 10:26-28.

Shalom!

 

AMAZING Grace.

I was once lost but now I’m found; Was BLIND but now I SEE. *AMAZING Grace*

Never really understood it “deeply” enough myself when I got the revelation on The Bible being a “code” which can only be decoded by The Holy Spirit. Although I knew most Words in it have much deeper meaning to it than the world is letting on but now it’s getting much clearer and can I say…’scarier’… Wow!

No wonder “they” always find ways to hinder the furtherance of the gospel. No wonder they tried all their possible best to dilute “The Word” in any way they can… Because “they” know the amount of power The WORD carries, because “they” know if “we” ever get to know “The Truth” then their kingdom is in grave danger.

 1 Peter 5:8

    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

And just so you know, he has already devoured enough and is still doing so. #shakesmyhead#

Each WORD in the Bible weigh so much but “we” take them with levity… which happens to be “our” greatest mistake and “their” greatest gain. “Their” aim & prayer is for “us” to take those “WORDS” at face value so “they” can strike at ease and continue to rob “us” of our GOD-given sanity and it’s coming to fruition because “we” are not sober neither are we vigilant enough.

.

.

“They” are the Children of darkness. “We” are the Children of Light.

 Luke 16:8    

    And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

Matthew 13:18, John 16:33, 1 John 4:4-5, John 15:19.

 Luke 16:16

The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

Meditate on GOD’s WORDS and OBEY HIM!

Shalom!

Overcoming Sin.

GOD knows those struggling to overcome sin and those using “His Grace” as a cover-up not to fight the ‘desire to sin’ when it comes.

Those struggling to overcome sin, GOD finds pleasure in because HE understands that it’s not easy down here and HE is happy that the person is trying his possible best to fight off satan, the tempter and move closer to HIM. Matthew 25:15-25

Those who don’t make any effort to work on the “fruit” (Gal 5:22-23) given to them to make it grow… same as the “one talent guy” in the Bible, to battle with their flesh; fight off the desire to sin (hiding behind “His Grace is sufficient” → A twist of the WORD the devil has successfully instilled in people) will get their rewards too.

Matthew 25:24-25;30

“Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

“IDOLS” WORSHIP.

Thank You Holy Spirit.

 

WOW… What an eye-opener.

Look around believers, it’s being thrown in our faces and most of us are still clueless of the facts.

 

IDOLS! Yes, “Idols” are all around us and are being worshiped “unknowingly” by men… “American idols, Nigerian idols, ” and the likes.

 

“When people think of idols they think of some statue made of wood marble or stone… These “idols” are fallen angels/spirits in the bodies of people. That’s why those celebrities like to be worshipped ~ adored [those fallen spirits love that], walking on red carpet… being worshiped, people taking pix, autographs, some even crying, trying to touch them…etc. That is “idol” worship…”

 

1 John 5:

20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

 

“…Idolatry may be summarized as the worship of idols (or images); the worship of polytheistic gods by use of idols (or images); the worship of created things (trees, rocks, animals, astronomical bodies, or another human being); and the use of idols in the worship of God. According to the psalmist and the prophet Isaiah, those who worship inanimate idols will be like them, that is, unseeing, unfeeling, unable to hear the truth that God would communicate to them.[8] Paul the Apostle identifies the worship of created things (rather than the Creator) as the cause of the disintegration of sexual and social morality in his letter to the Romans.” [excerpts from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou_shalt_not_make_unto_thee_any_graven_image]

 

And just so we have a grounded understanding of the word “bow” here; it doesn’t always take its literal form, which means that anyone’s authority OR “way of life” you see as binding and ruling over yours, takes a “bow” from you. In other words; the “stars” whose lifestyle, dress style, marital style, behavioral pattern, name it, people look up to and emulates (mostly in disobedience to the WILL of GOD) have become an “idol” and “master” to such individuals’ lives unknowingly.

 

That’s why the Bible (Matthew 15:8, Mark 7:6) defines such “believers” as “fake” ~ confessing just with their mouths and not with their hearts. And it’s such that Jesus will be telling on that day to depart from Him (Luke 13:27).

 

Most can’t eat, dress, work, act, and worst of all…”worship GOD” without first finding out “what’s in vogue”…; Slavery of the mind ~ one of Satan’s best tool in subjecting “souls” under himself.

 

Maybe now you’ll get a much clearer view of why you need to know The Truth (John 8:31-32) which can set you free from the wiles of Satan.

 

 Romans 12:2    

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” KEYWORD → be not “conformed” but “transformed”. Believers, did you get that???

Know this; You can’t be “transformed” when all you do is feed the flesh more than The Spirit.

 

Meditate on GOD’s Words and obey HIM.

 

Shalom!
