WEAPONS

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. FOR  THE  WEAPONS  OF   OUR  WARFARE  ARE  NOT  CANAL  BUT  MIGHTY  IN  GOD  FOR  PULLING  DOWN  STRONGHOLDS, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”. (2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—”. (Ephesians 6:10‭-‬18 NKJV).

THE PATH

…READ THIS NICE STORY…
…….YOU WILL LOVE IT……
I went to Genesis Hotels through
Exodus road. On the way, i saw
Leviticus recording the Numbers
of
people at Deuteronomy, while
Joshua was waiting at the beautiful
gate for Judges to see Ruth
calling
loudly “Samuel,Samuel”.
At a stage, the, first and second
Kings of Chronicles were coming to
visit Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther
for
the misfortune of Job their
brother.
Then they noticed that Mr. Psalms
was teaching his children
Proverbs
concerning Ecclesiastes and
Songs
of Solomon. This coincided with the
period
that
Isaiah and Jeremiah were
engaged
in Lamentation for Ezekiel and
Daniel their friend. By that time, Amos
and Obadiah were not
around.
Three days later, Hosea, Joel and
Jonah traveled in the same ship
with Micah and Nahum to
Jerusalem . Habakkuk then visited
Zephaniah
who introduced him to Haggai a
friend of Zechariah whose cousin
is
Malachi.
Immediately after the old tradition,
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
got
involved in Acts with the
Romans
who were behaving like the Corinthians,
who were also
always
at loggerhead with the Galatians.
At
that time too, the Ephesians
realizing that the Philippians were
close to the Colossians,
suggested
to the Thessalonians that they
should first of all see Timothy
who had gone to the house of Titus to
teach Philemon his younger
brother
how to read and write in
Hebrew. On
hearing this, James asked Peter to
explain to him how the three
Johns
have disclosed to Jude the
Revelation of my journey.

REMEMBER  

“There is a way that  seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death”. (Proverbs 14:12 NKJV).

“The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips. Pleasant words are  like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. There is a way that  seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death”. (Proverbs 16:23‭-‬25 NKJV).

“The Lord  is  my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; HE  LEADS  ME  IN  THE  PATHS  OF  RIGHTEOUSNESS  FOR  HIS  NAME’S  SAKE”. (Psalms 23:1‭-‬3 NKJV).

FINALLY  

“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Blessed are You, O Lord ! Teach me Your statutes. With my lips I have declared All the judgments of Your mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much  as in all riches. I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word. Deal bountifully with Your servant, That I may live and keep Your word. Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me. Teach me, O Lord , the way of Your statutes, And I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, For I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, And not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, And revive me in Your way. Establish Your word to Your servant, Who is  devoted to fearing You. Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me. How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path”. (Psalms 119:9‭-‬19‭, ‬33‭-‬38‭, ‬97‭-‬105 NKJV).

“And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.”
Matthew 21:21, AMPC

Everyone goes through seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During these times, it’s easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you are facing a situation right now that looks impossible. Don’t get discouraged and give up because God wants to do something awesome in your life. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is. Be bold and start speaking favor to that situation. Every day say, “Father, thank You that Your favor is turning this around. Thank You that Your favor is making a way even though I don’t see a way. Lord, thank You that Your favor is doing remarkable, astounding, overwhelming things.” When you release your faith like that, you’ll see God show up and do amazing things that you’ve never seen happen before!
Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. Just do your part and keep speaking to those mountains in your life. Declare favor over those situations and get ready to move forward in the victory and blessing God has prepared for you!

Standing on the Word in Faith.
+Have you ever been in a situation where…
…you have given it your best and it seems as if your best was not good enough?
…you have given it your all and nothing changed?
+What the Lord said to Joshua in Joshua 1:9, He is saying to us today:
“Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed {to be broken down, confused, afraid and beat down}: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go”
+Our circumstances does not change the Word of God. The Word of God and our Faith in the Word changes our circumstances.
+Our God is FAITHFUL.

This is how to have what the Word Says,Mark 11:23 tells us:

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this MOUNTAIN, be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he said shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he said.
+MOUNTAIN in this verse could also mean anything that opposes and contradicts the WILL of God for our lives, examples: sicknesses, diseases, poverty, premature death, etc.
+Please Notice that the prerequisite to have what we say is to FIRST BELIEVE IN THE HEART.
+This means that if we are Saying, Confessing, Proclaiming and Declaring the Word of God with BELIEF in our Hearts we will have what we say, AND WHAT WE SAY WILL COME TO PASS for the glory of God and our VICTORY. Hallelujah!!!
+You are already very familiar with this principle. It is the same principle applied to receive Salvation, John 3:16 and Romans 10:8-10.
+Praise the Lord!!!

•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
Let’s pray:
“Almighty Father God in the name of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, Hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as is in Heaven, thank You for encouraging me to do something in my life. Lord, thank You that Your favor is doing remarkable, astounding, overwhelming things. Today I declare favor of blessings over every area of my life and working things out for my good in Jesus’ name I do pray and declare it all. Blessed are we and blessed we will always be and to our Lord Jesus Christ be all the Glory. Amen”
Praise the Lord as we pray for one another
Your brother in Christ .( Thanks to brother Anthony,and Ricky for their input).

JESUS ,JESUS, JESUS  

Demons tremble at the sound of that Name. Philippians 2:10 & 11 says it best,”That at the name of JESUS every knee should bow,of things in heaven,and things in earth,and things under the earth,and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,to the glory of God,the Father. So let me hear you holla JESUS,let me hear you scream,JESUS. I CAN’T HEAR YOU.

“For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: “ As I live, says the Lord , Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God”. (Romans 14:9‭-‬12 NKJV).

“And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”. (Revelation 5:13 NKJV).

“Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the Lord ? And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me. “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall take an oath. He shall say, ‘Surely in the Lord I have righteousness and strength. To Him men shall come, And all shall be ashamed Who are incensed against Him. In the Lord all the descendants of Israel Shall be justified, and shall glory.’ ”(Isaiah 45:21‭-‬25 NKJV).

The Greatest Man in History

Jesus had no servants,
yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree,
yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines,
yet they called Him Healer.

He had no army,
yet kings feared Him.

He won no military battles,
yet He conquered the world.

He committed no crime,
yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb,
yet He lives today.

I feel honoured to serve such a Leader who loves us.

Tell the world about HIM today!

*The hand that will send this message to everybody shall not labor in vain*

DO YOU WANT GOD’S HELP,OR NOT?

Do you really think you can make it without God ? The truth is,God does  not help those ,who think that they,can help themselves,because  they think  they don’t  need Him.  However ,no matter  what a man thinks  or believe ,we all need God.  

“Woe to those  who  are  wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:21 NKJV).

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord , And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him  with His hand. I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. He  is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell in it forever”.(Psalms 37:23‭-‬29 NKJV).

 “The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord . All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord , And your thoughts will be established. The Lord has made all for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of doom. Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord ; Though  they  join forces, none will go unpunished. In mercy and truth Atonement is provided for iniquity; And by the fear of the Lord  one departs from evil. When a man’s ways please the Lord , He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice. A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps”. (Proverbs 16:1‭-‬9 NKJV).

“There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord ’s counsel—that will stand”. (Proverbs 19:21 NKJV).

“A man’s steps are of the Lord ; How then can a man understand his own way?(Proverbs 20:24 NKJV).

“O Lord , I know the way of man is not in himself; It  is not in man who walks to direct his own steps”.(Jeremiah 10:23 NKJV).

JESUS   SAID, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.  If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you”.(John 15:5‭-‬7 NKJV).

SOLUTION  

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. (Proverbs 3:5‭-‬8 NKJV).

EVERLASTING  LIFE

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “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.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”(John 3:16‭-‬21 NKJV).

“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to  be  compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the  will  of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to  be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can  be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It  is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It  is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.(Romans 8:9‭-‬39 NKJV).

“Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,  as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.  And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent”.(John 17:1‭-‬3 NKJV).

WHY WORRY  WHEN YOU CAN PRAY

Worrying takes your mind off of God,who is the supplier of all your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus ,as Philippians 4:19,tells us. That simple means that your Job ,and your boss, are not the supplier of your needs,GOD IS.

Worrying is one of the Devils devices to steal , kill,and destroy your joy,peace,happiness ,and stability , which ultimately takes your mind off of Christ the true supplier of all your needs.

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble”. (Matthew 6:25‭-‬34 NKJV).

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”.(Philippians 4:6‭-‬8 NKJV).

“as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”. (2 Peter 1:3‭-‬11 NKJV).

Never let Personal Success,and money means more to you than God.
Matthew 16:26
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
+What does it profit in all that we accomplished without giving glory to God?
+What does it profit in all that we say and do without the love of God?
Ecclesiastes 1:2
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
Colossians 3:23 -24
And whatsoever all of you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord all of you shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for all of you serve the Lord Christ.
Ecclesiastes 12:13
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
