Precious One of El Shaddai! (Exhortation)

 Let us be reminded that every word or phrase written in the bible has either a redemptive or blessed (or both) relevance to our lives. God’s Word has prophetic significance and never returns void. 

The breastplate worn by the High Priests of Israel had the names of the twelve tribes of Israel written on each of the twelve precious stones. This is how precious each of the twelve tribes are to Elohim God.
Similarly this is a revelation that the name of every child of God who is heir to the promises of the house of Israel through Christ Yeshua (the once and for all sacrificial Lamb and High Priest) is known and precious to Elohim God. 
Scripture says we are treasures in earthen vessels (2 Corinth 4:7). Elohim God’s people are a crown of glory and a royal diadem in His hand (Isaiah 62). 
El Shaddai, one of the names of God means that He is our sufficiency but is also expressed as “the many breasted God”. As a mother He nurtures those who are close to his heart because they are His children. 
As precious ones to God, we are as it were grafted onto His chest or heart. He cares about that which concerns us and works to perfect it (Psalm 138:8).
Being precious to God is being fabulous in God’s sight! What more can I say?

Happiness is knowing God Brings Peace

(Happiness is knowing series) 

Happiness is indeed knowing that God brings peace. Receive God’s Peace like a River in and through you! 
I pray for God’s peace to flow in a never ending manner like a river that forms tributaries into the recesses of your soul (mind, intellect and emotions) so that you would experience a perpetual Sabbath rest of the LORD.
In this place, you will receive revelation from the LORD directly and through His Word so that out of you shall flow rivers of living waters quenching the spiritual thirst of dry souls and hearts making a people ready for the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
There is no peace like God’s peace. Attempts at world peace without God as the source is just a charade and superficial for sooner or later confusion and chaos sets in. This is why Jesus explicitly distinguished his peace from that of the world when he said such comforting words
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27KJV)

As a believer in Christ you have His mind which means your mind or thoughts are focused on God. You therefore have access to God’s peace (Is.26:3) which is perfect.

God speaks His peace in every situation of your life, however He requires that you do not “again turn to folly” (Ps 85:8).
To live a life in God’s perpetual peace, He wants you to know that you need to be determined to overcome anxiety. How? Prayer to God concerning all things (Phil 4:6), while praying be thankful of what you have already received from Him. 
If you can’t think of anything in a moment how about your life? Your caring child, spouse,family or your job ? Also trust Him once you have prayed. It is only after you have done this that

“…the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”(Phil 4:7)

God of Peace be with you!

✝ Poem – Receive the Master’s Peace

Be anxious for nought and pray for what you ought. God’s peace will unfold as a treat,if a slave to worry you are not.

Peace like a barging river, shall knock down fortes of
deceit in your heart to cause the enemy to retreat.

Peace like a fighter plane shall land on the combat fields of your soul to dethrone the Prince of this World, end the cycle of disorder to commence divine order.

A peace foreign to this world in chaos because it knows not it’s Master and his ethos.
Who is it’s Master?

He is the Prince of Peace who saith to his own “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”.

On a mount he sat and taught

“blessed are the peacemakers they shall be called children of God” So be blessed, not stressed.

Do not retaliate but demonstrate his love to haters.

Trade anger with prayer for users and live to unite dividers. With your mates create colonies in a bond of peace and be the harmonies to iron out melodious creases.

Blessed vessel of peace, wrestle for the increase of God’s government and peace to have no end.

(Isaiah 9:6-7, Phil 4:6-7 Matt.5:43-48, John 14:27)

Acts 2:1-21 KJV:

1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

14But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all [ye] that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is [but] the third hour of the day.

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Joy Triumphant (Poetic Exhortation)

Introduction: Whatever plan the enemy has strategised against you, remember today that The LORD has a plan, a strategy to counteract it and outwork His victory for your sake because you are declared from birth more than a conqueror through him who loves you, Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour! So be filled with God’s:

Joy Triumphant ! 
Shout for Joy with a voice of triumph!
Rejoice I say rejoice! Be filled with the joy of the LORD, your Sword of Mirth given at your new birth.

The Word became flesh, imparted lasting joy, spoke so that man’s joy would hit the roof! and stoked flames of truth to perfect the law so men would be perfected, and reject flaws, pull down deceptive thrones and declare the enemy overthrown.

Let not your heart be troubled as you await the Soon Coming King but be clad in the joy of his presence, your armour of strength and use the Sword of Mirth to cut to pieces the ordinances of death.

Rise up, thou anointed and favoured of God! Enjoy abundant life! and never let the destroyer’s ploy mute your voice of joy.

“Shout unto God with a voice of triumph” ! (1)

EXHORTATION – A Christlike Self Perspective: Never disabled, forever unstoppable

Let nothing & no one call you “disabled” (incapable, unable, unworthy, insignificant etc…)

Will you allow others to label you and so define you? Will you accept their definition of you as opposed to God’s ? The negative definition that seeps into not only your conscious mind but also your subconscious, resulting in self limitation, under-valuing your capabilities or even prevents you from seeing what you are capable of!

The state of being “disabled” whether physical or spiritual is a matter of perspective. If you have a life in God, one of your key taglines should be “I am always capable through Christ”. Don’t be like a prisoner

-who has had their chains removed but is still standing in a bound position.

-whose prison doors are open but he cannot see it and is still sitting in the prison. Jesus came to set the captives free (Isaiah 61).

When in Christ, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life, regardless of your

✝️physical state, Nick Vujicic is an example, he said

“I don’t believe I am disabled. Yes, I may have no limbs, but no big deal. It doesn’t matter how I look—

it’s WHO I AM and WHAT I CAN DO that matters!”

(in picture below) check out his life story and achievements to the glory of God.

✝️youth: David who became king of Israel was a youth when God started to use him. By God’s power and might he was able to fight against the lion and the bear while tending to his sheep in the wilderness.

He developed the “I can” self perspective that was from God, so that the giant enemy of Israel, Goliath feared by adults of the army of Israel was “chicken feed” in his eyes.

God brought David up to believe he could do all things through God who strengthened him. This ought to minister to us as to how to bring up children or young people. The perspective of one’s self is so important and will determine the course of one’s life.

In our day, God is using young people mighty as it was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:25).

✝️little or no education: God gives wisdom and ability to excel for His sake and there are many cases of men and women of God who have not had the privilege of being educated at all or have very elementary education, who are doing exploits for God while demonstrating His wisdom and anointing as they do so.

Let us always see ourselves as children of God who can do all things through Him and Him alone.
Jesus said “5I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.”(John 15:5-6 KJV)

It is time for us to discard limiting self-perspectives and live in the reality of Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

You Are An Overcomer

I declare over your life today that
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD” (Is. 54:17 KJV).

What is a declaration? It is a formal, explicit statement or pronunciation or proclamation. The bible says God’s word is forever settled (Psalm 119:89). Therefore this declaration or statement (Is. 54:17) regarding God’s protection of you because you are His is settled! Just receive it and meditate over it, read it out loud, sing it over yourself because your God who wars on your behalf, delights in you and sings over you!
“The Lord your God is with you,the Mighty Warrior who saves.He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing” (Zeph. 3:17 NIV).

To God be the glory great things He has done!

The Lord says to you as He did to the children of Israel, this is your heritage:

1.”No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper…”

What is a weapon in this context? Anything that Satan uses to attack God’s people is a weapon. These include:

i.Objects such as talismans, voodoo dolls and amulets used in witchcraft and the occult.

ii.Human agents (by action or words)

-An individual, even a friend or family member, serving as an agent

-Satanic cults, witchcraft covens that engage in satanic séances, incantations

-A group of people, who could be a group of friends or a group of family members serving as satan’s agents.

Some people whether they are in the church or outside of it do not even realise they are being used as weapons. As we abide in Christ and He in us, our prayer is that we will strong in the LORD and in the power of His might so that we are not used by Satan and his demons.

If the weapons used against you do not prosper it is also true that the works or outcome of those diabolical weapons if they manage to manifest at all are powerless against you by almighty God. This is because you have the authority through Christ Jesus to withstand them. Jesus spoke of the fact that Satan has been defeated and that he has empowered his disciples which you are today:

“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.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 10:18-19 KJV).

 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”(Romans 8:37KJV)
Satan’s weapons and their works cannot stand or prosper because you are in right standing with God (righteous) and prospering in Him.

“2Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.(3 John 1:2 KJV)

Will you grasp these truths if you have not already and walk in the freedom that is your heritage as a child of God? If you have already done so it is time to be even more vigilant as you prepare to enter into the new year!
2.”…every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn..”

As one empowered by the Holy Spirit you are a powerful weapon in God’s hand for you have the power to condemn the enemy who attempts to condemn you!
1[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.(Romans 8:1-2 KJV).
As one who is righteous, empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit who makes intercession for you and through you according to the will of God, your earnest prayers “has great power and produces wonderful results” (NLT). Just take a moment to reflect on that!
Words released out of someone’s mouth a “Human satanic weapon”, which has condemned you, given you a negative picture of who you are and resulted in a sustained low self esteem even since your childhood are powerless once you come to Christ. Why? Because God’s words are the most powerful words which counteract, reverse and thwart the words that have been spoken against you since birth.
As you meditate on the word of God and declare it out loud as one in fellowship with the Holy Spirit who is the power of God,
-the voice of God is released in the atmosphere in all its power

-the testimony of Jesus (who is the Word of God) is made manifest.

Satan and his demons have no choice but to flee from the life of one who lives in the presence of God. This is because as a weapon and a mouthpiece of the almighty God, you are His “Battle Axe” (Jer. 51:20) or an instrument of His anointed voice and Holy Spirit that breaks demonic yoke and bondages.
 4The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.(Psalm 29: 4-5 KJV)

 20Thou [art] my battle axe [and] weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;21And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;…(Jer. 51:20-21 KJV)

If you believe that God’s words come to pass (Isaiah 55:10-12), then it means you also believe that they replace and so withstand the words of the enemy against you. This is what Jesus came to do, to engage in a divine exchange. When he died on the cross, he took on every curse, the written and spoken ordinances against you.

“14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;15[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it ”(Col 1:14-15 KJV).

This is why it is important to meditate on God’s Word (the bible) over and over again and to declare them out loud. In so doing your heart (your innermost being of moral activity, your soul) comes in agreement with God’s word of truth, His predestined identity and destiny for you. There is therefore a renewal of mind and so an exchange of the lies and false presumptuous about life and who you are.

Every plan or scheme of satan through his “principalities, powers and the rulers of the dark world, spiritual wickedness” (KJV) is thwarted by almighty God who is the LORD of the heavenly armies (angels) in Jesus’ mighty name!

Brethren, let us therefore continue to be steadfast in abiding in God through our Lord Jesus Christ because in so doing, we allow God through His Word and by His power to condemn and render null and void all of Satan’s weapons, schemes and plans against us.

Thus living a life that daily bears witness to the LORD “who bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:10-11 KJV).

 Blessed are you “whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance” (Psalm 33:12 KJV).

 You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

Time for reflection on our Salvation & Calling/Poetic Prose: …Them Also I Must Bring” (John 10:16)

Have you ever thought of the fact that when Jesus was praying just before his crucifixion (John 17) for his disciples and those unsaved who “also I must bring” (as he stated about the yet to be sheep in John 10:16) that the “them also I must bring” included YOU ?
Yes, you who was predestined to be born centuries later and would become born again children of God by the outworking of circumstances in your life? 

It is therefore a fact that our pathway to being saved was guaranteed by God to happen because JESUS INTERCEDED FOR US so many centuries ago.

I feel this is a great time for us to spend quality time meditating on this with immense thanksgiving as we celebrate Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection for our sake. 

Having a salvation that was secured by way of his High Priestly intercession before and by the act of his death, Jesus is still to this day making intercession for us at the right hand of Father God! What great security we have in Christ! We also have a clear mandate as believers in Christ to be His vessels to bring the unsaved to him. Are we demonstrating the compassion of God in Christ for the unsaved? Are we seeking opportunities to share the gospel? 
For most of us, coming to Christ was through someone’s prayers (in agreement with Christ’s at the right hand of Father) and/or hearing someone share the gospel. 
Nothing has changed, the Great Commission is as clear as ever, Jesus is still saying to us “I want to use you, for those “also I must bring” (John 10:16) Let us heed to his call for the time is short! The Bridegroom Cometh!! 
Below is a poetic prose about the reality of man’s separation from God & God’s quest for man entitled “…Them also I must bring”
