Order still applies

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MAY 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 4)

ORDER STILL APPLIES IN OUR WALK WITH GOD-SHORT CUTS ARE LONGER- God respects order so do not be fooled by extractions of the Word of God in hype to entice in order to achieve self-gratifying fulfillment. God’s ways ARE. God is not human; we cannot do anything to force Him to comply to our needs. No wonder we ask but do not receive because we ask amiss. And even when us ask, us don’t get it because our motives are all wrong because want only what will give us pleasure:( James 4:3)

Consider this: James4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. The devil will only flee AFTER we submit to God. The Order here is, we must first submit to the Supreme, Superior Authority then resist, in order for the inferior authority to flee. We are to do THE RESISTING PART TOO. That is when satan flees. Remember Jesus resisted in 3 attempts, after He had submitted to God in fasting and praying for 40 days. hint, hint!
Consider Romans 14:17-For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Order, to attain peace and joy, righteousness must come first. We can only receive the rights to this to this Kingdom though, the redemptive blood unto salvation, through a daily lifestyle of wearing the Breastplate of Righteousness (Faith and Love). Then with no time peace come. This is the peace (the one that passes all understanding! I have experienced this peace and still is. And oh, the joy of the Holy Spirit (my dancing, clapping worshiping Polly Joy!) Love Him; the Holy Spirit!
We first seek His Kingdom, then everything else is added to us. This is the intended Kingdom believers should have. That when we pray “your Kingdom come” in the Lord’s prayer, we are embracing peace and joy of the Holy Spirit. I believe the Kingdom of God to be the fullness of God in all aspects of our lives. God’s Kingdom extends beyond a geographical celestial setting. We all can I am live in the fullness of God right now right here. That is why Jesus taught us “thy Kingdom come”. To earth! Or where else was the God’s Kingdom going to. It can only come to earth in order for God’s will from heaven to take place on earth!
God hears us when we HUMBLE(submit) to God) ourselves. 2 Chronicles 7:14. The truth is that King Solomon, the Levite Priests and the Israelites did some major humbling in 2 Chronicles in to Chapter 7: 14. This verse was in response to all that been done. Order! Obedience to one step before the next, followed by a blessed outcome
PRAYER- We are living in times where knowledge and inventions have increased. This requires increased wisdom and knowledge in the things of God also. We are in age of counterfeiters. Let us pray for increased wisdom and understanding of the Word of God this week. When we do this, we can discern accurately by the Holy Spirit, our motives are purified shifting off that which not of God. Our prayers then avail much because flesh or selfish motives get circumcised. Our prayers become Spirit led and we see fruitful results. Wisdom is of utmost importance, therefore get wisdom, and do due diligence to acquire understanding. Proverbs 4.7. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Let us act on our prayers this week

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MAY 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 3)

LET US ACT ON OUR PRAYERS THIS WEEK-Prayer and action go hand in hand. This is what it means to have Faith and Works working simultaneously together towards the desired outcome. First the prayer MUST BE IN FAITH and must align to the will of God, not of personal selfish gain 2) Allow the Holy Spirit to lead your prayer.
Consider this, in order for the walls of Jericho to fall, Joshua, the Priest, the worshippers and the army seven matched around the wall (Joshua 6). Initially there was prayer, followed by ACTION. As I am writing this I am even intrigued by the lineup of this match. First were the priests and the army. To me, this translates to prayer in form thanksgiving & worship, an army, God’s presence (The Ark of the Covenant) followed by another army
As believers, we are watchmen (prayerful people) over our cities, territories, families, children, marriages, careers. As intercessors we must stand on guard while at the same time take action. King David was such a man. He had been in secret prayers while in the caves as a shepherd. He had already experienced and seen God’s saving and delivering power. I believe that most of David’s intimate revelations occurred in the hills and valleys while he was a shepherd. So when it came time for Goliath, David took action.
ACTION-I applaud set apart times to seek God in prayers and fastings. But it is crucial that we are not caught up in the religious spirit of “works”; always praying and not taking action. Without Faith we cannot please God (Hebrews 11.6) Faith without works is useless, (James 2.20). Hence PRAYER WITHOUT ACTION IS POINTLESS! So if you have prayed for a job, fill out the application, study the employer, prepare for the interview, dress appropriately for the interview, SHOW UP FOR THE INTERVIEW! Leave the rest to God. If you prayed for business opportunities, WRITE YOUR BUSINESS PLAN, conduct a market analysis, seek the Holy Spirit to lead to mentors and advisors. (Proverbs 15:22, Proverbs 11;14). Review your budget and develop a strategic financial plan, especially if you plan on leaving a fulltime job to start your business. Review legal and insurance requirements. You want to be well informed before you venture in. Collectively, these are ACTIONS OF FAITH, from the prayer concerning a business.
PRAYER-This week, pray for motivation. Pray for action. You have written your vision, now ACT on IT. Back up and fuel the actions with a different type of prayer; THANKSGIVING & WORSHIP; the army matched 7 times. Praise, worship and thanksgiving is what we do as we wait for God to answer our prayers. Then See What God will do! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

We are genetically engineered

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MAY 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 2)

WE ARE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED IN GOD- Although we were once in sin, the Blood of the Lamb; Jesus Christ DECODED us. Once decoded, this same blood and the power of the Holy Spirit CODED US, making us acceptable as His Children in righteousness. Oh thank you Jesus
In the decoding, we got reengineered to the original nature that we were intended to be, created in the image of God. We have been crucified with Christ and the lives we now live we live by faith in Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us. My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me; Galatians 2:20
With Christ as the main branch we are grafted in, at times in order to fully fit and blend into the branch we are pruned and weeded off so as to be more fruitful. It is in this pruning and processing that were are genetically altered and transformed from glory to glory. Romans 11: 17
If Christ is in us then we have his genes, likeness in us. We have no exceptions but to be what He is in us. Holy because He is holy. The flesh dies, the Spirit lives. We become the light, the salt, the love, the comforters, the teachers, the healers, servants to all.
While being transformed, we begin to get conformed. As the top strand, Christ is now the Head of us all. We are then twirled and hooked with different strands reporting to and guided by the main Head of the Church, Jesus Christ. When united, if we moved horizontally, He stays the Head, if we more vertically, He still remains the Corner Stone, the pillar that holds us all together
In Him we live and move and have our being. We have the assurance of the power of His Blood and Body, He is us and remains the hope of glory, the fullness of His Spirit, the Holy Spirit works with is whenever we request for Him. It is an inseparable connection because He does not allow even one of his sheep to get lost. Nothing can separate us from His love. We are genetically and spiritually engineered. Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.

Do not feed into the tantrums

Let’s Blog, Let’s Talk
(MAY 2016 BLOGS. WEEK 1)

DON’T FEED INTO THE TANTRUMS -Just letting you know that most of the time satan leaves with tantrums. STAND YOUR GROUND! FOCUS ON GOD! Whenever he knows he is about to be kicked out, he puts up a show! OR he puts up a show in attempts to get back in from where he has been kicked out. Satan will do anything to TRY to sabotage God’s purposes. These tantrums can show up in various forms:
Steered opposition/rebellion – by a group of people, family, friends, slander, gossip, rumors, grumblers, When Moses had gone up the mountain to receive the commandments that we should live by, he steered up the camp to build a molten image instead; an alternative (another blog topic), but read what they did make while they were very aware that Moses was with God. Exodus.32:1-6
Being ganged up against-How about when the Israelites had left Egypt? Pharaoh and his chariots decided to go after those God had just delivered from oppression and slavery. Satan has no pity. You would thing Pharaoh would recognize that he had just gone through 10 brutal plagues, his army may be weak because some died from boils, lice, frog bites, hail! No satan racked up a ruckus off the red sea they went. When the children of Israel saw then they screamed, yaicks! behind us look Moses…they paid attention to pharaoh’s tantrum. Be still and see the salvation of the Lord. The tantrums drove pharaoh and his squad smack into the middle of the sea. They perished in their tantrums (Psalm 136:15)
False pretense/mind games/delays- This may play individually in your mind as false belief or the notion that what you asked God for will not happen; simply put mind games or delays to a prayer! Like the story of Jesus and the boy in Mark 9:20. Satan sees Jesus, the boy shakes violently (tantrums) then boy lays still (satan playing dead=tantrums) …. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. he rebuked the impure spirit. “you deaf and mute spirit,” He said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again. “The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” BUT JESUS TOOK HIM BY THE HAND AND LIFTED HIM TO HIS FEET AND HE BOY STOOD UP.
PRAYER-When storms or life start acting out, especially after a period of fasting, commitment to prayer and commitment to God, DO NOT FEED INTO Satan’s tantrums. I ‘ve prayed that you recognize them. This is the prayer for this week. Father in the name of Jesus, I thank you for the Spirit of revelation and discernment. I ask that you open my eyes and understanding to recognize Satan’s tantrums, tactics and shenanigans. I believe and now I am able to see and know by the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus. Amen
So once you see, rebuke, resist and satan will FLEE. We are more that conquers in Christ Jesus. Receive Deliverance, Restitution and Promotion (DRP! I like that!). Believe! Let’s praise God for our D.R.P this week! Be encouraged, God is Faithful and Dependable.
