Hi, Jesus loves you.
Jesus started with the word and will end with the word. An understanding of how powerful Jesus’ words are will give you peace and victory in life. It will make you a master over the enemy and challenges of life.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made – John 1:1-3 (NKJV)
He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power… – Hebrews 1:3 (AMP, emphasis mine)
And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh – Revelations 19:19, 21 (NKJV, emphasis mine)
Jesus Christ is the Word
John 1:1 and Revelation 19:13 tell you that Jesus is the word of God. You can’t separate Christ from His word. Jesus is the word of God that became flesh and dwelt among men – John 1:14
An understanding of this truth will help you realize that the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation speak Christ. For example the lifted brazen serpent in the time of Moses represented Jesus on the cross – John 3:14. Everyone that looked upon the serpent was healed of the snake bite and lived – Numbers 21:9. So also, anyone who believes on the lifted Christ will not perish but have eternal life – John 3:15
Furthermore, Christ also confirmed it in John 5:46-47 (NKJV), when He said, “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” The scriptures and words of Christ are one. Christ is the word of God and all the books of the bible, including the books of Moses, talk about Him. An understanding of this will give you clearer meaning of what is written in the scriptures.
Created the world by His word
God created the world by His word. Throughout the history of creation, you will keep seeing ‘God said… and it was so’ – Genesis 1. God spoke the universe into existence; by His spoken words, everything came to be. All things were made through Christ (the word), and without Him nothing was made that was made (John 1:3), whether visible or invisible, thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16).
I can’t imagine how Christ felt when He came into the world, made through Him, and His very own didn’t receive Him – John 1:10-11. It must have been very disappointing to Him. The nature you see and adore was made by Jesus. This is the reason why, everything created obey His words: the wind, sea, trees, animals, birds and fishes. (more…)
Hi, Jesus loves you.
Your choices today decide your tomorrow. You make tomorrow today. For every choice you make today, tomorrow will tell the consequences of those choices.
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; – Deut 30:19 (NKJV).
God has a great future for every person He created, that includes you. God says in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (NLT) No one is supposed to be exempted from God’s glorious plan. But through our choices we knock off ourselves from His plan for mankind.
Your choices dictate the steps you take: steps to a glorious or destructive future. You make tomorrow today. Many people for few moments of pleasure, gratification, fame, power, recognition, etc, have destroyed their tomorrow today. For every act, consider the consequences of choices.
Esau sold out his birthright just to satisfy his hunger momentarily, Gen 25:29-34. He could have waited few more minutes to prepare his own meal. Besides, missing one meal wouldn’t have killed him as he said. Consequently, when he sought his birthright back, even with tears, he couldn’t get it back. Gen 27:34-38. It was too late!
Also Samson for fleshly pleasure of unlawful sex, (fornication) had his eyes plucked out, his glorious destiny crushed to a level of a prison house grinder. He became a laughing stock and eventually, his life was cut short because of few minutes of pleasure, Judges 16.
It is better to deny yourself some things even if people mock you and preserve your tomorrow today. Your destiny is dependent on nobody but YOU and God. Therefore, you should not allow people to dissuade you from making right choices. Choose to endure the mockery today and enjoy the honour and blessings tomorrow. (more…)
Hi, Jesus loves you
Are you having a challenge maintaining peace and joy within and around you? Have you been searching for peace? Maybe it is because you are looking for peace and joy in the wrong place! One sure place to secure peace and joy is in your fellowship with God. Everlasting peace can only be found with the prince of Peace (Jesus Christ)
Many people think that money can give them peace and joy. Some think that power will do so, while some think that getting married is the answer. Yet others think that success in their career or business will certainly make their lives peaceful and joyful. The list can go on and on. But many people have discovered that having all these still won’t give them what they deeply desire: peace that passes all understanding and Christian joy full of glory.
“And he said unto them, take heed and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things he possesseth” – Luke 12:15 (KJV, emphasis mine).
What you possess may give you temporary peace or joy, but to enjoy ceaseless flow of these two you need to get to the source, which is God. And fellowship with God will deliver them into your life
Now, I know you are wondering how you are to fellowship with God. It is so simple that many people don’t pay attention to it. To fellowship with God is to spend time in His word and prayer. You may say you are too busy to do so, but the truth is that you can always make out time for anything, including bible study and prayer. Which one is better, to build a strong relationship with God when there is no crisis or to seek Him during crisis? I certainly will choose the first option. (more…)
Hi Jesus loves you
Have you ever been attacked by a sudden fear, where all manner of negative thoughts are flooding your mind and you feel the worst is about to happen? Fear attack is common but how you respond to it determines how long it will linger in your mind and the extent of its effect on you. And for you to respond positively, you need to understand how to overcome fear.
One thing you must assure yourself, to be able to overcome fears, is that fear is not of God. God cannot give you what He doesn’t have. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Fear is of the devil and is the opposite of faith. When faith comes in, fear disappears.
Another thing you must assure yourself is that you can overcome any sudden fear. Fear no more has any power over you except the one you give it. Romans 8:15 (KJV) says, “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear…” Also Proverbs 3:25 (AMP) says, “BE not afraid of sudden terror…” As a child of God, you have the power to overcome fear.
Now, how do you overcome sudden fear attacks?
- Apply the break to your thoughts.
First thing you need to do is to consciously stop the fearful thoughts from flooding through your mind. Say NO to the devil and refuse to think on those negative thoughts. 2 Corinthians 10:5 encourages us to cast down imaginations, and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
- Take refuge under God’s love
You need to assure yourself that God loves you and will not allow any evil to come on you as His child. God said He will never leave you nor forsake you – Hebrews 13:5. When you remember that God is with you, the peace of God will come on you. As a father loves his children so God loves and takes care of us. (more…)
Hi, Jesus loves you.
In this month of March, I pray that God will lift you to a level you’ve never imagined. Promotion is of God and He desires all His children to be partakers of the same. But the challenge is that many people are not enjoying divine lifting as they should, and when some people do they have difficulties in sustaining it. So, what is the secret of divine lifting that lasts for a lifetime? This post gives the fundamental components that will make it possible.
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father – Philippians 2:5-11 (NKJV)
Promotion comes from nowhere else but from God (Psalm 75:6-7). For every lifting you got it came from God. He orchestrated it and ensured it came to pass. Do you doubt it? Ask those who have not been promoted for a long time. God’s favour upon a man delivers His blessings on him.
But why is it that many lack this favour of God upon their lives? It is because they lack the fundamental Ingredients for divine lifting! And what are these ingredients? Let’s consider what made God to highly exalt Jesus and give Him a name above every name.
- No reputation
You need to empty yourself totally of whatever you have or acquired before God. It is important to have a good reputation but you must not allow it to hinder your progress. Before God you must remain nobody. You need to strip yourself of all privileges and rightful dignity to do whatever assignment given to you per time. Daniel was one of the princes from Israel sent to Babylon as a slave. But he made himself of no reputation and he enjoyed a lasting divine lifting which other princes like him did not enjoy. (more…)
