Thankfulness!

The key to contentment & peace is developing the habit of always being thankful to The LORD for all that He has done, is doing and about to do for us.
Thankfulness should be the order of the day regardless of our circumstances for when we go through trials (“fire”) He is with us (Isaiah 43:2/James 1:2-3) and molding our character as well as teaching us to be solely dependent on Him” Have a blessed day

One Way Ticket to Heaven on the Metro

image

Riding on the London Metro
late one evening turning to the left,
I saw a man standing, swaying back and forth.
He ruffled his hair and shouted
“This goes to Euston Square,
how do we get a train to Euston!”
“Get a new brain Dr. Triston!”
a woman jeered.
“A rage filled man approached the
noisy pair, shook his fists and said
“one more word from you two and
I’ll leave you as good as dead!”

Turning my gaze away, I imagined Dr Triston’s
life what was, is and is to come.
I pictured him in his surgery,
bespectacled with nicely groomed hair,
busy and respectable seated in his chair.
He began the day in his surgery sober,
then off he went to the social bar
and then picked up this tart!

Rolling my eyes, I began to imagine
this woman’s seedy life
but suddenly I heard the doctor say
“a penny for your thoughts, me lady”. I shook my head nervously as sly as a fox. “Do you know Christ, who is God’s Son…?”
“Euston is on the Northern line”
I said cutting him short.
“God’s calling you on this main line through Jesus Christ His Son”.
I sighed and thought “He’s had too much to drink and sounds so thick!”
Then I asked “Dr Triston, who is this Son?!”

“My name is Marlon Jones, my wife
is Martha and we live for God.
Acting is my vocation;
tonight I played the part of Dr. Triston, who became a friend of Christ Jesus, the great physician.

Marlon testified of his miraculous
healing and his journey from
the occult to Christ.
He left a life of vice, went back twice but finally the prodigal
learnt what was right, and
now speaks of Christ with love and
obeys his commands from above.

He said “I present my Saviour
to you this day, but know, this is not a play and I have much to say,
’cause of time, I can’t but
tell a thing or two and hope that you would want to know him too.”

Marlon spoke a great deal and oh I felt such a fool, for I imagined he was a drunk and to be frank, I thought his Mrs. was one too!
I listened to his blessed words.
His voice was as the sound of one drunk, not with wine, but God’s Spirit and his eyes were diluted with tears of love.
“Could I a sinner, whose mouth is full of venom, eyes aglow with hatred and a mind clogged with filth, ever be like Marlon and his wife?”

As one who read my mind, Martha
began to say “There is no condemnation for those in Christ, for what He did for us,
God can do for you!”
I felt the power I knew was God,
like a mower it started to work,
for I began to holler “Lord Jesus,
I need you in my life! Come teach me to be holy and make me whole!!”

Martha and Marlon hugged me and
from deep within these words I heard:
“My precious child welcome to where your belong, for before your birth in Montreal, this day was planned, that you will
have your one way ticket to heaven on the Metro” .

Jesus said of himself “For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”1

Scriptural inspiration: The New Testament /Gospels Quote 1: Luke 19:10 NLT

“1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh” (Romans 8:1-3).

Perfect Peace

rainbow

Perfect peace is Father’s reward He entreats
to mindsets stayed on Him in intimate retreat.
Perfect peace is Father’s mealtime treat
so we can calmly say
“…my meat is to do the will of him
that sent me”1

Perfect Peace is Father’s empowering gift
so we can boldly say
“I am not miffed, I labour under
divine favour!”
At Father’s Banquet Table,
rewarded, we feast on meat in fervour
and drink the zeal of divine favour.

On the Mission Field,
commissioned, our works
“Speak and preach Perfect Peace
to change mindsets and speech”2

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee. (Isaiah 26:3 KJV)

DISCOURSE – PERFECT PEACE

These are the quotes and the messages derived from this prophetic poem with the Isaiah 26:3 theme I felt inspired by the LORD to write:

Quote 1: This quote is from John 4:34 KJV:
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
Quote 2: This quote is part of what I sense the Lord is saying. The whole message is as follows:
“Speak & preach about perfect peace to change mindsets and speech. My perfect peace, I give to those who trust me. This type of peace the world cannot give and comes from me is sustained when my people live in a place of steadfast intimacy (Father’s Banquet Table) with me.
Perfect Peace cannot be sustained in their hearts if they treat their time with me as though they were employed in a part-time job; here today, gone tomorrow and only appear sometimes”.
Perfect Peace, the “mealtime treat” reward enables us to engage in the “doing” (the meat) in Christ-likeness with excellence. The “empowering gift” is another way of expressing Perfect Peace as the “Mealtime treat”, this time revealing the power and divine favour which gives us confidence when we engage in works for God.

Gracious Father, help us to partner with the Holy Spirit for a “check-up” on our mind’s focus & trust level in our relationship with you. In this way we can repent if need be and overcome any barriers to attaining your perfect peace in Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

The Word of God vs Your word

silverwordExhortation
The Words of The Lord are pure Words as Silver tried in the furnace of the earth purified seven times! That is how perfect the Word is!
Let us think of every word we say and action before we do it and ask ourselves, what does The Lord say about this in His pure, perfect Word? Will my speech & action be pleasing to Him who called us from darkness into His Light, through Christ Yeshua our redeemer the Light of the World?

“16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” (Col 3:16-17)

“Sanctify them through thy Word”

Jesus prayed for those who are his as follows:
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17 KJV)

As believers we know we are saved by Grace through faith. Faith in a God who daily answers Christ’s prayer in John 17 for every believer;

He sanctifies us by the truth that is in His word. I have to pause here and say what is really true: He can only sanctify us through His pure and true Word if we allow Him to do so. We have our part to play which is to read, study and live according to His Word of Truth.

The Holy Spirit only responds as a teacher and source of divine revelation to a truly yielded heart. We get nothing (zilch, nada!) for doing nothing because our relationship with God is a two way process. May we always remember that.

Poem: Pure & True
Pure, Pure, Pure
are the words of the Lord.
Sweet as the honeycomb to hearts yielded and ready for integrity.

True, True, True
are the words of the Lord
Fragranced with the scent of grace that only seekers of truth can appreciate.

Gracious Father,
we pray that you would sanctify us through your word.
Forgive us if we have been slack or disobedient in anyway.
We acknowledge that apart from you we can achieve
nothing and all our works are in vain.
Help us in our weakness for when we
are weak we trust you alone to give us strength.
Revive us again, LORD.
In Jesus’ mighty name we pray.

“Dialling numbers”: Ask, Decree/Declare & Believe While Living Obediently.

What are you desiring from God? Jesus said “whatever you ask in my name I will do it” (John 14:13-14)

As long as God is your LORD, that promise holds true, so ASK.
Don’t ask amiss or half heartedly saying “I will pray but “Que serra, serra” (French for whatever will be, will be) or “If God feels like it, He will answer… ” or “Oh I’m not sure He will give it, but let me ask anyway!”

No! Ask with the confidence that you will receive it. A double minded person cannot receive anything from God.

As long as what you are asking is in line with what God through His Word says you are entitled to, then ask with confidence knowing you will receive it.

“I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24 NLT).

Remember though that God, being sovereign and the controller of your life and destiny may not answer your prayers in the way you expect or prefer. This is true even if they are based on His will according to the written or the prophetic word. However when God does answer, whatever the answer may look like, you will know God is the source and give Him thanks for it.

As our heart condition before Him is of great importance, God would expect us to live in holiness as best as we can according to His Word as we seek to receive answers to our prayers.

He may also not answer the prayer in the timing you desire. But as the saying goes “God is never late, He is always on time”. His timing may appear to be delay but God is putting certain things in place, preparing you and the circumstances associated with the outcome. Therefore brethren let us exercise the spiritual fruit of patience which is indeed a God given virtue.

If you know that you have entitlement to what you are praying for because you are a covenanted child of God, also remember that you have the authority through Christ Jesus to engage in spiritual warfare prayers and make decrees and declarations according to the written and personal prophetic word.

Spiritual warfare prayers involve the relentless pursuit of God in prayer for all that He had for you while declaring openly and in confrontation to natural and spiritual enemies that they have no power or authority over your life. This is because you are an anointed covenanted child of God.

“19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”(Luke 10:19 KJV)

“27Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.28Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways” (Joel 22:27-28 KJV)

I have many testimonies of answered prayers; I first of all gain insight into what God wants for me, pray about it and then declare it by faith until I see it come to pass.

One example is how I used to take my prophetic word about the call of God on my life to write many books before the LORD many times declaring and decreeing that as it is a prophetic word of God concerning my destiny, I trust Him to bring it to pass. It was a personal word I received in 1994, affirmed by a prophet who did not know me at a Christian International Ministries prophetic conference in February 2000.

I started of with a bimonthly newsletter in 2015, then writing in blogs (websites) and then I published my first book (Bible study & meditation) in April 2016, a book I started writing in March 2014, in April this year. I have published two more books (on Poetry) as at September 2016 and thinking of others I have manuscripts ready for.

Brethren, God knows what He has in store for you, through abiding in Him and His Word, you are sure to know what they are so that you can partner with Him for them to manifest.

Prayer is key, prayer is powerful, but the fuel that results in prayers being heard or rising up as “flames with smoke” that is pleasing incense unto God is obedience to God and His Word.

Always remember that you are more than a conqueror through him (Jesus) who loves you (Romans 8:37) and God is always eager to answer your prayer calls (Jer. 33:3). All you need to do is to “dial the right numbers” according to His Word.
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

All that Glitters is not Gold

image.jpegThere was a pretty young lass who desired to accomplish much, and set her sights on writing fiction. Befriending achievers she became popular by association.

So called friends, the learned and posh and dimwits with a lot of dosh passed through her life leaving their opinions
and thoughts. “Wow that’s a bestseller!”, “Excellent work get a publisher!” said they full of praise. Her ego was raised and she became full of self praise.

This lass became a spendthrift to fit among the top notch, made regular purchases of new bags with shoes to match. Also dating a rich publisher to her was quite a catch. The lass cared not for old friends, shunned them and laughed at mama’s prayers and tears.

The knock on the door was almost unheard as in unison thunder announced the coming storm. A delivery of newspapers it was, for the day of media reviews of the book had dawned.

Her face beamed with a smile, looking back with delight at her gold trimmed writing world with a sugar daddy for a publisher and top class publicity. The promise of free book signing events she received in a club was to her a seal of his unending love.

Sitting pretty awaiting her man, she began to read review after review…
As lightening struck, her smile cracked and shattered in an instance, tears streamed down as she prayed to awake from the horrible dream.

A dream where she was pinned down by critical words as sharp daggers causing unbearable pain. Her sobs were as the sound of the raindrops and became wails, louder than the hurricane late into the night!
Such was her state, in shock for two days.

Mr lover man, the publisher answered not his phone, nor did he and her uppity friends return her calls. In shame she called her mama who sobbed on the phone and rushed to cradle her baby girl, home alone.

Mama the wise, her tongue uncoiled as a scroll and out came these words:
“Have a vision, run with it but never leave your true self and her backers behind. People in shallow places, pout what they know their peers want to hear, to tease the ear.

To be in the click, they stroke each other’s backs and throw kisses as enticing cats. You were too naive and tame to know my child that with them elevation at all costs for fame is the name of the game.

Mama repeated her words into ears as sink holes and a heart as quick sand, creating in mama’s girl a desire to depart from the old, so that she craved for a new start. Mama prayed, she repented and with bags packed,
homeward bound they drove with mum singing praises at the wheel.

The lass fell asleep and saw a man, then he became the Door and in she went. There a pasture of beauty appeared, full of books and scrolls embedded in the soil “as potatoes ready for the picking…” were her thoughts.

She heard a voice say “Now you know trusting self and the deceiver avail nought and all that glitters is not gold. A repentant heart is my writing board, a place wherein I impart my vision.

The reality you now see, a field of finished works are for an appointed time, my dictates of truth from your hand to bless the world.”

From henceforth I commission you to write in pastures green where a dreamy destiny does become reality.”
Then a pen was placed in her hand, on it was written her name “Jemima” and the words:
“Reverence for God and His True Word are more desirable than Gold”

Scriptures

John 10:9 KJV: “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

Psalm 19:9-14 NLT :
9Reverence for the LORD is pure,
lasting forever. The laws of the LORD are true; each one is fair.
10They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. 11They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them. 12How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin. 14May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

 

A Circus in the Dead of Night

image

The world is a circus in the dead of night with bestial ways abounding
as men display their skills and talents
to an audience preferring the vile and dangerous feats in life’s parade.

The hypocrite and deceiver is the masked mocker, the clown who
manipulates and seduces the crowd for loud laughs and reverence, but strikes when one’s guard is down.

The broken and maimed form a continuous procession along the streets as on a carousel.
A people whose fate is for the gain of the owner of keys to their chains.

Fearful and oppressed nerves jitter as on a roller coaster,
Confused and worried minds dizzy in thought as on a merry go round.

Well suited masses are a shadow of their true selves, each a reflection of someone else.
The living dead, consumed with self are performers in the concert of life. As circus artists in camouflage they dance the jive of death to the tune of funeral criers and church bell chimes.

The world is a circus in crises in the dead of night, will it welcome broad day light and the appearance of the healer, a true giver of life?
