EFFORTLESS BREAKTHROUGH


Does God have to be loosed from some form of inactivity through one’s white-hot activity, before one can receive from Him? 

“I need a breakthrough” “Pray hard until God intervene” “I will not let God go until He blessed me today” “We need an open heaven today…don’t sit there and pray like you have no problems” “Lift up your voice and pray with passion…violent take it by force” “Receive faith that moves God”. These are some of the passionate sentiments of the believer, pushing real good to ignite the heavens for quick response. Can the believer motivate God to action?

IS GOD BEING LAZY OR BORED – I grew up within the Pentecostal and Charismatic circles, as a Christian. As a charismatic believer, we had the belief that faith has to move God into action. This form of negative believes is the source of “operation push prayer marathon” “breakthrough prayer chain” “power to open heavens” “violent take it by force” and what have you in some circles within the Christendom. It is totally absurd to think that God is lazily sitting in a huge sofa in heaven, with zero interest in the affairs of men, until some spiritual bulldozers pray so hard to bulldozed Him into action. The idea of chain prayer is not wrong and neither are passionate prayers wrong in any sense. We are truly encouraged by scripture to pray without ceasing. I love prayer, fasting and shouting when I am in the presence of God, sometimes. But I don’t try to motivate God with my form or style of prayer when I pray to God. I pray because I love to talk to my daddy and plug into what He is already doing.

FLEE FROM TOILSOME LABOR Jesus wants His followers to be free from worry and self effort, because He already has knowledge about our needs. A knowledge which is accompanied by a strong desire to meet our needs, at all times. The Bible says; “25Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? [Matthew 6:25–26]

Anxiousness will cause you to try to work God to walk you out of troubles instead of resting in the caring heart of your heavenly Father, who leads you as a good shepherd, through trials and troubles [The valley of shadow of death]. The breakthrough mentality to motivate a lazy God to action is an insult to the finished work of Christ. It always birth out unrest and confusion in one’s life, which leads to human mechanization as a substitute for originality. There is nothing you can do on your own to breakthrough against satanic limitations. Recognizing your identity in Christ as a victor is the first step to exercising your rightful authority against Satan and his cohorts. If one does not rest in the already established grace of Christ, there is always a question of when will I breakthrough? You are always looking for what’s next to motivate God into quick response. When we gather in His presence, needing a miracle, we don’t try to bombard heaven with prayer missiles to awaken a sleeping God. We stretch our hands in faith and receive a manifestation of His presence which is always with us. We don’t plead with Him to come. He is already in our midst. The fact that when we come together and we have no feelings about God does not means He is sitting somewhere, minding His own business. Our feelings can be deceptive but His promise is unchanging. The scripture says; “I will not leave you nor forsake you” [Heb 13:5]

GOD IS MOVING OR NOT MOVING? – Friend God is already ‘moved’ through Christ Jesus with white-hot passion to see you prosper in all things. Are you not more valuable than the birds of the air? Just as the birds of the air naturally rest on the established laws of God for their provision, God want to see the believer walk in constant trust, in His abundant riches and love. If your kids had to always motivate you into action by bowing and throwing praises on you like a god before you cover their back with clothing and put food on their table, then you are not a good parent. Our Father in Heaven is caring. We have not learned how to receive. We have become mere beggars in our prayers. We think the harder you pray the greater impact you make. There is difference between noise making and real prayers, which hinges on covenant relationship. Praying longer hours, few seconds, undertone or shouting is not the key. The key is the motivation. Don’t ever think wrong motivation pleases God. We can do the right thing with wrong motivation. In the sixteenth chapter of the Book of Acts of the apostles, Paul and Silas praised God in their prison cells and suddenly there was a miracle. What was the motivation? Were they singing to motivate God to move on their behalf or it was a sense of trust in their God, even in their woes? God did not respond because their song was so touching, heaven could not delay, but to swiftly respond. I believe their songs were not means to compel God, but a faithful assurance in who He. Their faith in God in times of trouble, bear the fruit of supernatural escape. Hear from the lips of the Master; “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words”. [Mathew 6:7 ESV]

THE BREAKTHROUGH EXPERTS – Breakthrough is one of the common catchphrases in the body of Christ. To the Pentecostals or the Charismatic believer, breakthrough is centered on breaking the defenses, barriers, and limitations of Satan and his cohorts with some form of spiritual force or work, in order to receive from God [We always see a glass ceiling over our heads, that needs to be broken]. It’s also a lifestyle of passionate desires for an open heaven on one’s life. There are some folks in the body of Christ who consider themselves as experts in breaking-through into the throne of God, through special techniques and methods. They have the “7 Principles to Break through Into the Heavens”, “14 Ways to Prayers that Move God”, “21 Keys to Pulling God from Heaven to kiss the earth”. Which of the techniques moves God? These man centered prescriptions are based on rules instead of a relationship with God. Those who are not armed with such abilities to breakthrough into a kingdom they are already in are considered as babes. If you can’t shout, fast longer days, pray in a certain way or style, some deeper blessings will elude you, they say. Am not surprised the lack of power and authority within the body of Christ. Men are running around looking for an intermediate experts to connect them to God. You have a privilege to speak to your God irrespective of how weak you are in prayer. Just pray my friend!

FAITH JUDGES GOD RIGHT Faith is not a special ability within the human heart [attained by special men] that compels God to act on our behalf. [See Romans 12:3] The simplest definition of faith is having a good opinion about God. Our faith in God is a foundation of a persuasion in our hearts about who God is, what He has done, and who we are in Him through Jesus Christ. The believer has the measure of faith in his born again spirit to rightly judge God as faithful in all of His manifold promises, in Christ Jesus. You already got faith to believe God.

IT’S NOT ABOUT TECHNIQUES – Friend, in your worries, you don’t need techniques…all you need is Jesus. Just call on Him and believe in His word about your life, and see the Spirit goes to work to comfort your heart. That is an effortless breakthrough. Many Christians has waited for breakthrough for decades and they feel so frustrated about God. God is not wicked to hide himself from us and only special efforts by special men can touch His heart of love. Listen friend, Satan is a defeated foe…yes he will rise against us with doubts in our hearts to weakened our faith. He can be the stronghold in the minds of your children or partner. Yet you don’t need to go through 21 days of prayer works before God will intervene. Your prayer and fasting does not move God…Fasting rather helps you to control the carnal weakness of the body so you can be in alignment with God’s word. I did not say fasting is not good. Fasting is good but it doesn’t change God, it rather changes us.

YOU GOT POWER ON THE INSIDE – My friend, there is Power on your side, every micro second of the day. Just speak the word into reality. Speaking God’s word through the lips of faith is not a command to usher God into action. We can speak to our problems as we recognize the authority of His word and declare it with our faith in Him. Mountains move, sicknesses bow, confusion disappear and victory manifest into our reality. Your confession didn’t move God…your confession recognized an overflowing current of God against Satanic energies. I am not against breakthrough prayers but against prayers that men work on to try to move God into action. Have you ever heard preachers say stuff like; “After I finished my anointed prayers and confession, God moved so powerful, over the place”. God didn’t move an inch…God was already in the place like a mighty wave but men were dull about His activity. God’s power is with you at this moment, whether you are at 7 Eleven or in the train. You represent Christ and other believers like you in that place. Just because you don’t know does not mean you are the only Christian in that place. What about the Church fellowship, family in prayer, or the bible study group. Jesus says that; “20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. [Matthew 18:20 KJV]

HEALING IS A DONE DEAL – Under the New Covenant, we are in a new day of supernatural accomplishment of Christ. Our view of God’s presence, perfect health and healing should not be based on how hard we have to pray and sweat to impress Him, so He will come into our midst and heal. We have already experience break through and open heaven. Remember, healing is a done deal, over 2,000 years ago, on Calvary cross. The Bible says; “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” [1 Peter 2:24 NIV] 

RECEIVE HEALING TODAY – Precious one; you have received the greatest breakthrough in Christ. From degeneration into regeneration, from aliens into royalty, from rejection into acceptance, from death into life, from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, from fear to love, from poverty into prosperity, from sorrow to His peace, from condemnation to justification and from sin to righteousness. You have already breakthrough into health, according in scripture. Faith plugs into the finish work to receive. God is not initiating a project in heaven as men puts on great ritualistic performances. You have already been healed of cancer, diabetes, lung weakness, HIV Aids, abdominal pain, stress, depression, autism and all its siblings. Christ took it away and gave you perfect health, dominion, power, prosperity and wholeness on every side. Rest in Jesus faith and allow yourself to be immersed in the ocean of His love. Most people think there are body organs warehouse in heaven, and if one is sick or had injured his body and needs a replacement of a body organ, we have to call special intercessors who knows how to break into God’s donor house, in lightning speed. In your born again spirit, you have a whole new world of a kingdom which do not lacks in anything. Healing is yours with your eyes on Jesus. It’s only received through faith. Satan do not hold your miracle in the skies, neither do witches sits on your wealth. You are complete in Christ Jesus. Breakthrough is all about knowing who we are and taking new territories for Christ, by establishing the kingdom where it has not been preached.

THE LOFTIEST BREAKTHROUGH – In my estimation, the loftiest form of breakthrough for the believer is what Apostle Paul prayed for the Ephesians in Chapter one and three of his epistle to the church; Having a revelation of who God is, what Jesus has done and capturing the hope of our calling, and the manifold blessings within the saint, through the escort of the Holy Spirit” should be our greatest pursuit. Paul writes; Ephesians 1:15-19 (KJV)15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. He prayed again for the Church… Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV)17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

God loves you and has lavished you with over the-top provision in all areas of your life. If we honestly desire to breakthrough from a life of toil to an effortless life of rest, I recommend to you the so good to be true gospel of Christ. Through the gospel, we will stop trying to breakthrough and enjoy or experience the fullness of God in our lives. This is a day of salvation, rest, prosperity and breakthrough, as it was declared by the Prophets and fulfilled in Christ Jesus [See Isaiah 53:1-8, Luke 4:17-19]. Christ has gone before us and won the victory for us; we are resting in His work, picking the booty of His victory. Hallelujah!

The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head. [Micah 2:13 AMP]

FALLEN FROM OR FALLEN INTO GRACE


Galatians 5:4-6 (MSG) I suspect you would never intend this, but this is what happens. When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Meanwhile we expectantly wait for a satisfying relationship with the Spirit. For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love

We have consciously or unconsciously denied ourselves of the hyper-effects of the finished work of Christ Jesus in our lives, one way or the other. The Legalistic attitudes and mindsets which rise-up-rgb-whitehas subtly crept into our lives, blocks the free-flowing river of grace in our relationship with God. Most of us has zero presence of peace and joy in our lives, as Christians. I don’t mean to condemn you for experiencing turmoil in your life, but want to encourage you that you can rise above the storms of life and live in 100% depressing free life. Peace and joy are a byproduct of the quality life of Christ. You can’t concoct it on your own ability, neither can you survive life through the temporal peace and happiness the world gives. You only have to yield your life to His. The bible says we have fallen from grace. To fall from grace does not mean the lost of salvation. It means we are operating and functioning from the platform of Law, to the neglect of the abiding life of Christ. Christianity is Christ… minus the self ability of men. Receiving what God has already accomplished through Christ Jesus, from the foundation of resting in His unmerited goodness is the fulcrum of Christianity. Anything outside of Christ is futile, no matter how religious and loftier it may look in our eyes or sound in our ears.

Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace [Gal 5:4 KJV] 

NO PAIN NO GAIN? In the field of sports and other arenas, the catch phrase for motivating people to peak performance or achievement is “no pain, no gain”Under this conception, competitive professionals such as athletes and artists are required to endure pain and pressure to achieve professional excellence. I am 110%  believer of hard work, where hard work is necessary. Hard work always pays off. The question is “Do we have to suffer through our own efforts in order to  gain the quality life of Christ? The No pain, no gain ( “No gain without pain”) or suffer to gain mantra, within the body of  Christ, expresses the belief in self occupation, self-dependence, self effort, will power, as a platform to reach the riches of God, in child-labourChrist Jesus. You takes a man’s ego away when you remove the platform of self, and established him on the solid foundation of Christ.

We hate to yield our life completely to His life, that the glory may not be of us but of His mercy and grace. Did you became anew in Christ through paining to gain or through rest in His grace? No pain, no gain mentality in the body of Christ is enshrined in legalistic mold of the believer. We rest in Christ Jesus to gain all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. We don’t have to suffer or sweat to impress God to act on our behalf. God has already set the table for a great banquet with man. All we need to do is to respond to His invitation to His manifold blessings. The Holy Spirit responds to the above question through Apostle Paul, in his Epistle to the Ephesians. He writes;

For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved ([a]delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.] (Ephesians 2:8-9 Amplified Bible AMP)

Almost every believer believes that, they did not work for their salvation in any form or shape. The scriptures emphasize that faith, grace, righteousness are all a gift package from God. You Photo Credit: Google imagebeing righteous, loved, accepted, forgiven, washed, healed, made holy, sanctified, prospered in all dimensions of life, is a pure gift of grace through faith. Sadly to say, most Christians start their pilgrim journey through rest in the finished work of Christ, and then along the line, they feel like they have been left on their own to work out their own salvation through self effort, in order to make it to their destination. You don’t have to go through hell before you get to heaven. You are to live a heaven on earth through Jesus Christ. Many will diligently pray to God for His strength, but at the back of their mind, they are saying; “God, meet me halfway and lets strike a deal”.

Christianity is not more of God, less of us. From start to end; Christianity is all about the total expression of Christ life, in the life of the believer. God doesn’t want you to meet Him halfway with sweat on your brow to prove to Him that you deserve it more. In Christ Jesus, He has made you complete so you can enjoy the liberty of the Christian life, effortlessly. (See Col 1:27, Col 2:10) The Bible says that we should continue our christian walk exactly as we received Jesus. It was by grace through faith and not of self works that got us into the many blessings of God. It is by faith through grace, from start to end. Apostle Paul once again sounds a clarion call to the believer;

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him” [Col 2:6″]

DO GOD HELP THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES? As beautiful and religiously as it may sound in our own religious ears; the popular catchphrase “God help those who help themselves” is a serious cancer in the body of Christ. It has radically awaken self-consciousness above Christ consciousness in the body of Christ. We talk and sing about Christ but we have200549504-001 become the “I generation“. In the first place Jesus did not come to the earth to help us solve our mess. We were completely lost and helpless in a mud of sin and condemnation, needing rescue. It is recorded of Jesus declaring our state of life and His agenda, in the gospels when Zacheaus experienced a radical change, through the super abundant grace of God; “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” [Luke 19:10] Salvation is therefore the work of the gift of grace [Christ] to the helpless. Friend God does not help those who help themselves, He helps the helpless. Those who have reach the end of their rope or come to the end of themselves; knowing that salvation is not in their riches, wealth, fame, deeds or spiritual affiliation but can only be found through rest in Christ. This is how one fall into grace!

Those who are trying  hard through the system of tithing, fasting, good works, prayer, giving, church attendance,  [which are all not bad in themselves] traditions of the church, legalistic rituals,  to prove themselves as righteous before God base on their works, renders the once and for all perfect sacrifice of Christ, ineffective in their lives. They have fallen from grace and living a frustrated life of self works. It’s a stink in God’s nostrils and a clanging cymbal in His ears. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. The Pharisees and the teachers of law in Jesus day are prime examples of work oriented citizens, for everything God. They were applauded by their neighbors for their zeal for God but they were like empty sepulcher before God. Jesus declares to me and you;

“For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven”. [Mathew 5:20]

Thank God, Jesus became  the answer to the far exceeding beauty of righteousness and life, to all who believe in Him. (See Romans 10:9-10) The new breed of believers can shout from the roof top to the deepest valleys that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. One can enter or experience the kingdom of God only through the righteousness by grace through faith in Christ, and not of the self work, self occupation, hypocritical form of righteousness which the Pharisees and the teachers of the law propagated for many years before Jesus arrival. It is centered on “what I do” to become, instead of believing in “what He has done” to experience His life, freely. Self righteousness is emptiness that leads to frustration and death. Friend, Christianity is Christ plus nothing. Let Him take the center stage of your life, as you surrender all your burdens to Him. He knows you cannot do it without Him. It is not just difficult without Him. Beloved, it is impossible without Christ. ( See John 15:1-6)  Listen to the Apostle of grace; 

19 For through the law I have died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ[a] 20 and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body,[b] I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. [Galatians 2:19-21 HCSB]

HE WAS MORALLY GOOD – I had the opportunity, sharing the gospel with a gentleman who was well mannered and cultured in every way. He was morally good. He was very helpful and kind gentleman to his community and family. He never drinks alcohol, curse, fight, or did any crazy stuff, from his youth. He was a gentleman! He looks into my eye and said something that shook the core of my being. He said; “I have never sin against anybody in my life, neither have I sin against God, so I am okay with God”. Meaning he didn’t need to be right with God through Jesus righteousness but on his own good works he believes he has achieved right standing with God. How sadly within our local Churches are filled with men and women who are more of themselves, playing religion. They have never heard the good news of Christ and are enslaved in self works. To cut a long story short…this man was diagnosed with cancer, and was declared never to survive. As I

I-can-helpstood on his dead bed, believing God for a miracle, I realized that he has reach the end of the rope, needing help from the Master. He saw the  emptiness of life without Christ. He gentle requested that I should lead him to Christ, and just few days after confessing Jesus as His Lord and Savior, He died as a righteous man. His righteousness was not based on His moral goodness or church affiliation. He never had the chance to joining any Church organisation. He only cried out onto the Lord and He was saved from the original sin of Adam. (See Romans 5:12)

Paul refutes the ideology of those who believe in grace for the start and their own strength to reach the finish line, with these profound words. He writes; “Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for ChristYea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: [Philippians 3:4-9  KJV ]

If righteousness is based on the flesh, Paul lists all his qualifications before our eyes. In terms of the law… He was a super-duper legalistic man but when he encountered the righteousness through faith, he counted all things as lost for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus. Are you so glued to a person, a religious activity, and yet you find no peace and liberty in your soul? Just ask Christ to open your eyes to the truth of the gospel, that you might be freed from the prison of self in order to enjoy the liberty of His life. Those who do not set aside the grace of God in their Christian life are the ones who bear the radical fruits of righteousness. Remember, we are created unto good works but our position with God is not measured by our good deeds as means to acceptance before God. My prayer for you my friend, is rooted in Philippians 1:11  (AMP) May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and right doing) which come through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), to the honor and praise of God [[a]that His glory may be both manifested and recognized].

LET US PRAY – Thank you Jesus for swapping places with me, that I can freely share in your life. Father God, I believe that in Christ Jesus I have right standing with you, loved, acceptedPhoto Credit: synecticsworld.com, sanctified, made holy, forgiven, justified, born from innocence, blessed with peace, joy prosperity, anointing, favor, wisdom, and total wholeness in Christ. Holy Spirit, you are the light of revelation and understanding. You are guiding my feet on firm foundation in Christ finished work. I refuse to bow to the subtle deceptions of self effort and yield in all aspect of my life into who I am in Christ Jesus. Amen!!

Thank you so much precious one, for taking the time to read, like, comment and re-blogged, to help spread the good news of God’s amazing love. Peace and love to you!

YOU ARE NOT A SINNER BECAUSE YOU SIN.

Do you believe?
Do you believe?

I decided to reblog this post for one reason. My perception of the unbelieving world has to always be in alignment with the heart of God. I share with you today, this timeless inspiration from the pinnacle of God’s grace, to inspire and motivate us all to jump into the fire with a new attitude of grace and mercy and snatch people out of the fire of destruction into the kingdom of God and of His Christ. Be blessed and energized with fresh zeal and passion for Christ Jesus.

A HOLE IN THE GOSPEL| CHAPTER 1


In December of 2011, while we were in a 21 day prayer and fasting for the Church of Jesus Christ, I saw a vision of the Lord in my spirit, whiles I was sitting in my car praying with other Photo Credit: Google imagesbelievers in a phone conferencing…you can call it prayer hotline.

In this vision; “I saw myself and a host of Pastors or the clergy men in their official clerical regalia, each holding a PICK AXE; with passion digging a deep HOLE in the earth surface. This was one big hole…the effort and the passion we were actually putting into this business of digging deeper, is indescribable” I had a teary eye; a whirlwind of sorrow and hopelessness overwhelmed my whole being, as I watch everyone dig like a gold digger in search for precious gems. Instantly, an interpretation was given to me by the Holy Spirit. He said;

“THERE IS AN EMPTINESS IN MY CHURCH” He continued; “my servants have a dug a big hole of emptiness in the hearts and soul of the Church, and they keep digging deeper and deeper and deeper with passion. In time of test and trials due to the emptiness in their hearts (my Church) they struggle to prevail”. “Their prayers have all become an activity before me, they feel condemned and unrighteous; neither do they have an intimate relationship with me Their emptiness is perpetual. I am the only one that satisfies the thirsty, yet my servants are not projecting me unto My Church” 

Colossians 2:8-10 (The Message) Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.

Many in the body of Christ are standing on quick sands and slipping slowly into despair, because Christ Who is the only unmovable rock that will stand the test of time, is not the centre of their religion. Christ becomes the center of your religion not because you sing about Him or tell storie s of His good life. Christ is the center of our life when the life we live in the flesh is His life and all we do is to His glory. Self sits on the throne of ones heart when you, trying to rule, reign and direct your affairs in your own terms. It doesn’t matter how sacred that might look on the outside…that is not Christianity. Just as Moses lifted up the bronze serpent in the wilderness and those bitten by poisonous snakes (life complications) lived again, so must we exalt Christ Jesus like a neon billboard that, all that travels on the untested terrain of this dark tunnel of life, can draw life and light, to accelerate purposefully to their destinations.

CHRISTIANITY IS VERY SIMPLE – It takes complicated people to complicate the life-giving reality of Christ into human traditions and ancient philosophies, which is difficult to assimilate and process by the believer. Christianity is Photo Credit: Google imageChrist. Christianity is not techniques, nor 101 Rules, 7 Special Steps, 21 Keys of human wisdom to reach God! When you try to get access to the will and promises of God through human effort and concepts which sounds good to the ear, it always leads to frustration at the end. Your will power can only sustain you to a certain degree of life, but it has no promise to sustain you at all times. – Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. – It is God, my dear friends who works in us to functions in His will and purpose. It’s only through the Spirit of grace that one can prevail over impossible circumstances and bear abiding fruits. For instance, one cannot and will not be able to live a life of true joy and peace without Christ. These two virtues are the very character of God, which emanates in us, as we abide in Him as covenant children, through faith in His finished work. You want to experience through peace? Don’t try hard to walk in peace…embrace the truth of God’s peace which has already been lavished on you freely as you set your heart on Christ. Meditating on His good opinion towards you in the midst of the complex issues of life, will calm your nerves with unusual peace which only God can give to us ( See Isaiah 26:3)

 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing – John 15:4-5

A SHOCKING STATEMENT BY A LEADER IN NEW YORK – Eastern religion and certain forms of human concepts and ideologies which have no root in Christ Jesus have gain inroads into the body of Christ. These beggarly, weak concepts which have been sold to the masses in the form of motivational mantras, to the neglect of the transforming power of the gospel. Many are in the Church today who have never heard the so good to be true gospel. The gospel is simply the good news of the Photo Credit: Google imagefinished work of Christ and what it has wrought for humanity, independent of our human effort. The clause of this gospel is faith in Christ…appropriating what He has already done. It is sad to say that, many believers sincerely love the Lord but the reality is that they have never heard the truth which takes the burden off your shoulders; all they have known in their entire Christian journey is the junk of emotionalism and self effort legalistic concepts, which has one into total emptiness, on the inside. I had the Chance to minister in a Church in New York City…I saw people literally set free from the bondage of guilt, shame, condemnation, sin consciousness. You could see their faces glistening with life; with tangible miracles of healings and breakthrough for God’s people.

What did I do? I shared the simplicity of the gospel, and the Holy Spirit went to work. After the conference, the Pastor was so touched by hearing the gospel in its unique way, but the sad part of this scenario is his open confession to me. He said; I know this is the truth, but if you keep emphasizing on it, people will leave the church! I was totally shocked! Many Church leaders believe that we were saved by grace through faith and not of our works that we should not boast (Eph 2:7-8) and yet they find it hard to live in the balance of grace and faith. What did you do to get save? Grace through faith! How will the Lord build His Church? Not by your methods and techniques; it is by grace through faith. Faith in what?  In the finished work of Jesus Christ. You don’t start the Christian life by grace and then God leaves you on your own, to live the Christian life in your own strength and effort. That is uncharacteristic of a loving God. Paul writes to the Colossians… So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, Colossians 2:6(NIV) This is so simple yet it’s hard for many souls to comprehend.

This was Paul’s greatest fear when He wrote to the Church at Corinth… But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV)

Do you know that the pulpit which is suppose to build you up can also end up corrupting your mind from operating from the simplest and yet powerful platform of the truth of the gospel which sets free. One great man has said; “wrong belief system always leads to wrong behavior” Christianity is not difficult, its totally Impossible without the life of Christ, which the gospel so much emphasize.

Please to capture the whole perspective of this post…read Chapter 2 here. Is the Church focus is to build and transform lives or to entertain with sensationalism and emotionalism? Chapter 2 answers this question!! Thanks for reading, and you have a graceful journey with Christ in your Christian pilgrim. Shalom

REASON TO SMILE


“The gospel of grace is not about what you do to make God smile it’s embracing what God has done through His Son Jesus Christ, putting a smile on your face.

It’s glad tidings of great joy to all people, not a condemning, miserable, hopeless pills, we can’t swallow.

It’s a gospel which reveals God’s view and opinion about you, is not built on anger but a new platform of persuasion encoded in His loyal love and graciousness”

But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. (Luke 2:10 AMP)

WISDOM ACCELERATION


By wisdom a house is built
By wisdom a house is built

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver! Proverbs 16:16 (NIV)

I think what fascinates me about wisdom is that it is non-discriminatory. You can have a Phd and lack wisdom, but you can be illiterate and be wise. The pauper can obtain it, but the wealthy can’t buy it. And the strong can’t take it from the one who is weak. It would seem wisdom can be obtained by all. The only advantage in obtaining wisdom is time. The longer one lives the more opportunities to amass it, but age is only an advantage, it’s not a guarantee.

So how do we get it?

It seems that humility is one accelerant to obtaining wisdom.

Proverbs 18:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” What could be more humbling than recognizing the character and nature of God and our position to Him? The wisest of people I have encountered do not have even a smidge of arrogance or haughtiness in their person. Jesus, who had every right to power, became nothing, serving his own creation to the point of death. Humility has probably been the most difficult of postures to acquire and greatest of personal struggles I’ve faced throughout life. Every time their is pride, wisdom is absent
