If but for the birth of Christ…

If but for the birth of Christ where would we be?

Knowing him is the greatest thing that happened to us, his Saints we will always be. When Christ our Saviour was born, the light in our lives, God planned to turn on. No more slaves to sin are we, but now among the chosen few. God in Christ is faithful it is true, always ready for men to renew.

As friends of Christ his mysteries to us he imparts,
not only for us to flourish and grow fat,
but that we will with zeal, the gospel to impart.
To seal many in Christ and soften hardened hearts.

Scriptural Inspiration: John 14:1-5, John 14:11-14, Isaiah 9:6, John 15:-14-16

“1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not…” (John 14:1-5 KJV)

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)

“11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 14:11-14 KJV)

Authority in Christ!

KNOW, DECLARE & EXERCISE YOUR AUTHORITY

“Then he [Jesus] called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Then he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”
(Luke 9:1-2)

“And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, 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)

It Is Finished!

Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!

 As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).

Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your

“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).

Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God. 

When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over. 

We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word.

This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!

Intercessory Prayer: Not by Might Nor by Power, but by your Spirit LORD

Father send your Spirit to chase away every demonic spirit in the land. Send your power to overcome the forces of iniquity & darkness among your people.

Intervene LORD in this nation to turn the hearts of the father to the children and the hearts of the children to the father.

Come and flood this land with your Spirit! Let rivers of truth immerse your people, those you have created; redeemed and marked for redemption.

Arise Father and show your strong arm against leviathan the enemy of our souls.

March forth like the man of war that you are, Yahweh Gibbor and show your strength, O Mighty God of the Armies of Heaven, release your fury upon our enemy, break his neck, stamp on his head and release the captives from the north, south, east and west!

Demand release of those in captivity, reject the sounding trumpet calling them to join Gog and Magog, the enemy in disguise as their deliverer.

Open our eyes, mighty one of Israel!
Shut the mouth of our aggressors!
Destroy the weapons of destruction!
Arm your people with strength, that they may match on in victory.

We are your people, tillers of your land, harvesters of souls; missionaries for your cause, light-bearers unrelenting, Ambassadors of Christ yielding and tireless to bring multitudes into your tabernacle of Praise, glorious to behold.

Not by our might we serve, but by your Spirit LORD…breath on us!

Isaiah 54:17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!

Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Corona Virus, the Government, Us & God…

Many may be apprehensive and fearful at this time because of so many reports on television and in the newspapers about people being ill, dying or dead because of the coronavirus all over the world.

The sense of panic and uncertainty is worsened still because of the need to be quarantined or practice social distancing and isolation even for those who do not have the disease or manifest symptoms.

Brethren God is with us today as He was with Israel and these comforting words apply to His people now as they did in ancient times;

10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you

Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.

12 You shall seek them and not find them— Those who contended with you. Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ (Isaiah 41:10-13 NKJV).

Specifically in relation to God being the protector of those who are his from danger and plagues, the psalmist states:

“1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. And under His wings you shall take refuge” (Psalm 91:1-4 NKJV).

It has been proven that those who do not have symptoms of the corona virus (covid-19) manifesting to any degree and were later tested positive, were found to have infected those they had socialised with before they tested positive. I read several accounts of this.

Therefore it is important to distance oneself socially as much as possible for lengths of time, especially obeying national guidelines.

This is not only for one’s own sake but for the sake of others; You may not contract the disease or you may only have a mild form of it, but you could infect someone or others with underlying health issues (i.e pneumonia, organ transplant etc…) who are therefore vulnerable. Health professionals have also said the elderly are also more vulnerable to contracting the corona virus.

Let us be honest, at the time of writing, most people have not been tested in places where covid-19 diagnosis, illness and death are increasing in number such as the UK.

We must therefore be selfless and concerned for the well being of others as well as our own.

Instead of being alarmed and critical of the strict measures imposed to prevent the transferal of covid-19, and thinking “surely as a believer in Christ I don’t have to pay any attention to what the government is advising, after all God is with me!”, it is time for those who reason this way to come out of the “spirituality bubble” that resists God given common sense and wisdom.

Certainly there is over reporting and too much focus on the cases and issues surrounding the corona virus, but this is the reality of life. Reporters do the aforementioned for a living and human beings generally focus on issues that affect their everyday life to varying degrees depending on what it is.

Cutting out all the “noise” and living in a “spiritual bubble” of the type described earlier is not only disobedient but dangerous to the health of oneself and others; it is a case of also refusing to advise others sensibly because one refuses sensible advice.

God given common sense and wisdom must be the basis for complying with the governments’ efforts in controlling, preventing and resisting the spread of the coronavirus. If in China where the corona virus started, the strict enforcement of social distancing and quarantining worked to dimish and stop people being affected with covid-19, then other countries imposing the same or similar measures are doing the right thing.

Godly common sense and wisdom calls for accessing the situation realistically and when we do, we are able to see what governments are doing from a biblical perspective. It is not everything the secular unbelieving (in Christ) world does that is apart from Elohim. After all He created human beings, the heavens and earth and is in control of everything.

It is worth knowing or remembering as a believer in Christ or for those interested that social distancing, isolation or quarantine were practiced during biblical times.

There is God (of our Lord Jesus Christ) instructed biblical precedence for social distancing, isolation and quarantine. Therefore disobeying the government is not merely senseless but in effect it is disobeying God the Father’s proven method of ensuring the diseased are healed as well as preventing them from spreading it to others. There is nothing new under the sun!

Some of the scriptures are as follows:


45 “Now the leper on whom the sore is, his clothes shall be torn and his head bare; and he shall cover his mustache, and cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 He shall be unclean. All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He is unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.” (Leviticus 13:45-46 NKJV).

This is a type of current social distancing and isolation measures.

In Numbers 12:1-16 when Miriam got leprosy, God instructed that she be kept isolated outside the camp for seven days. Israel led by Moses complied and they did not continue their journey until she was returned.

This is an act of being quarantined or isolated so that Miriam can recover quickly and she is also prevented from spreading leprosy.

In addition in Numbers 5:1-4, God instructed Moses to tell the children of Israel to put outside the camp those among them that have been defiled. They obeyed. This is what is happening now; those who have tested positive for the corona virus are quarantined.

Brethren, may our lives as faithful warriors for Christ be demonstrated among other ways, in our partnership with our government and nation to combat this common world wide enemy: corona virus. This is the will of God in Christ Jesus.
