John 17: 11 … Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

GOD IS NOT DISAPPOINTED IN YOU


Legalistic thinking says; “I messed up big time in this pilgrim journey and I am disappointed with myself.  God is seriously disappointed and mad with me”. Grace gospel says; “Your God is not in a mood swing. He is not mad at you, neither is He disappointed with you. He is madly in love and affectionate towards you, to restore you beyond measure”.photo Credit: Google image

Isaiah 54:7-9 – For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

God exhausted all the wrath that you deserved on Jesus Christ, that you may experience the blessings of Abraham. Jesus paid the debt He did not owe because you owed righteousness demand from the supreme justice of God, you could not pay. Did Jesus do all that for you because of your talents or good looks? You deserve death but He gave you life, you deserve condemnation but out of the riches of His kindness, gave you the free gift of righteousness by grace through faith. This is too good to be true. He did it because He loves you.

Photo Credit: Google imageSadly to say; the Church of Jesus Christ have become so beat down in sin consciousness, guilt and condemnation. We focus more on Sin (weaknesses, imperfection, inadequacies, and all the negatives of life) than focusing our emotions on Christ Jesus, and of His righteous acceptance towards us. She has no confidence and assurance to come before God in boldness to receive grace and mercy. Many believers are struggling in this area I have just mentioned, because of a system of belief which says “God reward us on our goodness and punish us on our imperfections” This is not scriptural but a perverse gospel to put people into bondage again, in their Christian life.

God is not angry with you. He’s already dealt with the sin issue and exhausted His full wrath on Jesus on our behalf. God does not condone with sin in His covenant with us, so to keep us on sinning spree. Under grace, He does not impute our sins and weakness, imperfections against us. Paul affirms that in the book of Romans…

Romans 4:6-8 (KJV) Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

 There is nothing you can do to make God love you more or less. He loves you not because you are lovely; He loves you because He’s love. Are you being weighed down by your weaknesses and blaming yourself for what you could have done right? There is freedom for you my friend!! Today, focus on the blood of Jesus Christ which atoned for your sins ones and for all, with the eternal benefit of a clean conscience, through forgiveness and allow the Holy Spirit to remind you of your completeness in Him. The mercies of God are revealed throughPhoto Credit: Google image this Messianic prophecy by  Isaiah, the prophet. God dealt with the Old Covenant saints according to their performance. But now God says, I am establishing a covenant with you through my Son, to meet all the demands of justice. After Jesus has taken our sins and wrath upon Himself; do we still beat ourselves down? If the accuser of the brethren point you to your weaknesses and mistakes point him to your position in Christ. Satan specializes in distracting you from who you are in Christ so that you will be conscious with your self weakness and past mistakes. he does that to poison your mind and heart from embracing the free gift of the quality life which flows from the Spirit of grace. What do you see?

UNBREAKABLE – The covenant that our heavenly Father have with us cannot be broken by anything. God is not pointing His mighty hands on you in disbelief for not fulfilling your part in this covenant. God is not rebuking you! Yes, He is not; under the new covenant of grace. He is always mending and restoring covenant with us through the finished work. The last time you messed up, God did not change his mind towards you and neither is He treating you special because of your performance level.

For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. (Isaiah 54:9)

Under the New Covenant of Grace, God is not condemning you, neither is He disappointed with you. He is not disappointed with you because you are not doing too much or you made a ridiculous decision in the past. Receiving His love and goodness when we are weak in our faith is what cures our inadequacies, so that we can be empowered to do good works. It is time to reckon our righteous position and allow grace to influence our thinking and the emotions of our heart. Sin persuasions do not change God…it rather blurred our eyes from seeing the overflowing stream of His grace and loving kindness in our direction.

THE SECRET TO WALKING IN PEACEBeloved, you have to position yourself in the arena of peace between yourself and that of God. Not knowing that the battle between you and God has been resolved through the shed blood of Jesus will always keep you in a position, trying to earn peace with God through your performance. God was mad with humanity Photo Credit: www.kristendukephotography.comthrough the original sin of Adam, but has now received us through His tender mercies, not on the basis of our performance or works, but through Jesus. You now have peace with God. The curtain of separation has now been torn into two, with complete access to the Father of love and mercies. He has not hidden His face from you, because of your sins and neither has He withheld His goodness because of your low par performance in your Christian life. Here is the good news as recorded by Apostle Paul through the Spirit, in the book of Romans.

Romans 5:1-2 “1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

The message of the angels to the poor shepherds is the greatest news of pure joy God sends to humanity, when God came down in the person of His Son, to reconcile men to himself. This  message of peace on earth and goodwill towards men is not just a cliché on Christmas season. It paints a glorious picture of the place of mankind through the lenses of the perfect sacrifice of Christ. The war is over; a new day of salvation, acceptance, love and favor is here for those who will believe in Christ. Stop fighting your way through the jungles of life and let His peace wash your heart.  Luke gospels trumpet it clearly;

Luke 2:13-14  (NKJV) 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

When it feels like God is mad with you and disappointed in you because you haven’t done enough to make Him fulfill His part of the bargain; you completely falls from grace. God’s healing grace or physical provision cannot be earned by how holy you are or perfect your days has gone by. The gift of righteousness has brought us into the grace terrain to get access to God’s goodness through the persuasion of His great love. God’s goodness towards you is not to condone with our mistakes. Should one not deal with his mistakes before you ask for favor from God? It is only God’s goodness which can break the power of weakness and failure. On our own; we are dead!! Scripture says that;

You surely don’t think much of God’s wonderful goodness or of his patience and willingness to put up with you. Don’t you know that the reason God is good to you is because he wants you to turn to him? He is not afraid to be Good. (Romans 2:4 CEV)

Why should I be afraid to receive His abundant grace, to meet all of my needs? So ask, knock and seek…surely you will find Him when you least expect. He is not angry but closer to you than a brother. I have had people complain to me with anger in their face. They say things like; “I have prayed, paid my tithe, anoint myself with oil and done all there is to be done and yet God has not restored my life”. My friend you don’t deserve any good thing from the Lord on the basis of what you do. He loves you and therefore cried out; calling you to come to His throne when you have even messed up. Lighten up and come to the end of yourself and run to Jesus, even now. Prayer, tithe, and offering are scripturally encouraged, but they are not a means to which God will cause His healing on you. (This is another subject in itself)  What about giving money to God to motivate Him? As a covenant child of God you are guaranteed to walk in the blessings of God according to your position as the righteousness of God. Your giving to God is motivated by His love for you and your confident trust in Him, as your source of sufficiency.

ON YOUR MARK, GO! – The book of Hebrews reveals the heart of our high Priest. Christ Jesus, our chief priest sits on the right hand side of God through His complete work on Photo Credit: Google imagethe tree in royalty and power. He can be touched with our infirmities and weakness. He is not throwing tantrums every passing minute of the day. He has thrown a wild open invitation for all who believe in His name to come;For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

At what time do we come to the throne room of grace? When we feel we are too okay in our own right or when we have needs? I believe scripture challenges us to come with an attitude of boldness and not of shame and self defeatism heart and beat down conscience, trying to negotiate with God with our tears and religious emotions. It is a matter of a complete and sincere knowledge of true righteousness and our supernatural connection with God which goes beyond any human limitation. Nothing; absolutely noting should keep you from the love embrace of the Father.

salt and lightA PRAYER TO PRAY- Thank you Father God for loving me just as I am! Today I come into your very presence; Jesus my high priest to receive grace and mercy. Thank you for saturating my heart with eternal pleasures and beauty for my ashes

A TRUTH TO REMEMBER- I am love and crazily accepted by the God who created heaven and earth. His love for me changes my perception towards life and my relationship with Him

A THOUGHT TO CHEW ON – As a covenant child of God you are guaranteed to walk in the blessings of God, according to your position in the righteousness of Christ.

A LIFE TO LIVE- I will share the truth of God’s mercies to those who are beat down in condemnation and sin consciousness by point them to God’s goodness and open hands.

   My deepest love to you my dear friend. With your eyes on Christ, the victory is a done deal. – McDaniels Gyamfi

A HOLE IN THE GOSPEL| CHAPTER 2


Capture the central perspective of this post by reading Chapter one from here. In Chapter one, I share the vision the Lord revealed to me in 2011, in regards to His Church. He said there is an Emptiness in my Church!!

SENSATIONALISM AND EMOTIONALISM – Apostle Paul warns the Church at Colossae to be watchful of leaders 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. This is the abundant life; the well where the thirsty and dissatisfied souls find rest and Photo Credit: Google imagecomfort.

THE WILDERNESS CHURCH -We see a similar picture in the wilderness Church…The congregation murmured against Moses and were willing to stone him, for lack of water for themselves and their animals. The Lord gave an instruction to Moses, to speak to the rock (Christ) before the eyes of congregation and water shall flow in abundance from the flinty rock.

Numbers 20:11-12 (NKJV) 11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. 12 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”

Moses, out of anger and disobedience stroked the rock twice with his rod and water gushed out. What was missing in this wilderness miracle was the neglect to exalt the Lord before the eyes His people that they can place their trust in Him as their sole satisfier and provider. Moses was not supposed to take the spot light…it was Christ, who was the type of the rock. Moses and the congregation miss the opportunity to reach the promise land. It is not always about the miracle; it’s always about God who is the miracle maker. Who is your focus? Yourself, your leader, your denomination or it is all about Christ?

WHAT TIME IS IT? It is time we drop our pick axe gospel of self works, legalism, commercialization, sexism, materialism, condemnation which has become the order of the day and share light on God’s grace gospel which is simple and yet has the power to build the total man from the inside out and grant us an inheritance with eternal value. Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit spoke to the leaders of the Ephesus Church in his farewell address, to be committed to God and the timeless truth and principles of the word of His grace which has great benefits to keep them from false brethren and demonic concepts. The sound of the great Apostle still echoes through the corridors Photo Credit: synecticsworld.comof time to the 21st century church…

Acts 20:32New (NKJV) “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

A mind corrupted by wrong theology or belief system about God and who we are in Him leads to all kinds of behaviors and malfunctioning in life.  If the body of Christ is denied of her ability to behold the beauty and pleasant nature of Christ through the preaching of the Gospel which Paul says “Is able to build you up and not only that but to also give us an inheritance”  … then we deepen the vacuum of emptiness which plagues most Christians, and not experiencing this amazing grace independent of our self occupation and willpower to get access to the boundless riches in Christ. This is not a matter denominational or doctrinal over protection; it’s a matter of giving people the chance to see Jesus and throwing out all man centered religion and traditions out of the window.  Are you ready to be a part and parcel of this movement?

BUILDING NEW ALTARS I share the same passion with Malcom Smith 110% on what really matters now; preaching the gospel which is the power unto salvation and not works. He clearly sounds the trumpet from the roof top that we will all hear…“Preaching the gospel, we are announcing the news of the revelation of who Adinkra Symbol, Ghana: God's Presence and ProtectionGod is and how He feels about us. We stand on the street corners of the world shouting the news that God is not the way we thought He was – He loves us!!… This is the greatest news in the world… The love of God…is the magnetic north of truth by which we fix our position as we stumble lost in the wilderness of the world…To know that His love for us depends on Him and not on us is the beginning of the way out of the futile, meaningless lives and religious despair”

The pulpit has to be oiled again with the passion to see people transformed and not modified into robots without the ever abiding life of Christ flowing in us. Jesus said He came purposely to give us His own life in full measure. If this is heaven agenda, then the burden is not on us anymore but we must embrace this life by faith to impact us in all that we do on this side of eternity…

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly “- John 10:10 (NKJV)

The pulpit needs repentance from dead works, and come back to a true relationship with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Beating people with do’s and don’ts, when they’ve really not been empowered to know their true identity rather suppress them than doing them good. You don’t beat a servant and torture him to think and work like a king when his mind is beat down and contained in a prison of unworthiness, shame and insignificance. We tell people to become like Christ with child-laboursticks and hammers on their head, when they have no idea of who they are in Christ Jesus. Throwing fire and brimstone on people through condemnation and self occupation messages or sermons always compel sincere people to try hard on their own; because of their inability through self, they fake their identity, and yet we celebrate their outward modifications whiles they struggle under the cloak of hypocrisy on the inside. Teach me who I am and effortlessly, I will discover who I am and live naturally as God intended through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Transformation is an inside out work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer!!

You want transformation and fulfillment in Christ? Find a Christ centered church and resources that will draw you in to the riches of Christ in your daily life as a believer. May Christ be exalted before your eyes today in love and victory over complex issues of this world!!

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

A LETTER TO MY FORMER CHURCH


Dear Former Church:

I hope you are not shocked to be reading my letter. I know it’s been more than three years since we crossed on each others pathPhoto Credit: Google image

Let me go straight to the point. I was reminiscing through memory lane; the years we shared together at East Effort Avenue, until I found the joy of experiencing a personal friendship and intimacy with Christ, which is based on His effort at the cross of Calvary. Life has not been a smooth ride, but I am really enjoying a restful journey – no more guilt, shame, fear and the weight of trying to be wholly on my own terms. It’s a simple principle of simply embracing who I am in Christ, through faith.

I don’t mean to be ungrateful; I was saved at your Church on good Friday of 1979, when the late Reverend Ray Ray preached that fiery sermon on the reality of hell and heaven. I learnt a great deal of things through bible studies and summer vacation bible school, prophetic crusades, street outreach, baptism etc. in my early years as a believer. The joy and the passion were great in the beginning, when all I knew was Christ and His eternal plans for me. I have now realized the reason the honeymoon didn’t last longer…my joy was depleted when I had to try on my own to embark on the Christian pilgrimage with a load of strict traditions and rules to abide with. Honestly, I had to fake it at all times…it was hard to live this life without Christ.

Recently I met some of your sons and daughters at a grocery store and was completely overwhelmed with concern about their attitude. They were Photo Credit: Google imageactually not doing anything evil but they didn’t seem to be happier, joyful and peaceful in themselves just the way I have known them in the past. I figured it out perfectly, because I was in this same bondage years back. I didn’t know then that God has not given me the spirit of fear but of love and sound mind in my born again spirit to walk in liberty and freedom. What a flood-tide of joy that sweeps over your soul, for the sheer knowledge that you already have love, life and peace through the indwelling Spirit off God. Against this background, do you really care enough that you’ve put too much burden on the people of God and yet it has no bearings in the word of God?. I know you exalt man’s traditions, rules, and regulations more than embracing the free gift of grace. Performance oriented religion is a serious cancer in your skin, and it’s eating you of a life of victory. I know you’ve tried so hard through will power and self effort to please the Lord, and to also earn a mark on your score card, but your best day has never met the standard of God.

I feel very sorry for your frustration…I know, you sincerely want to do your best for God, but the truth is; extreme self denials and positive thinking techniques are allPhoto Credit: Google image carnal works of the flesh. God’s standard is too high and there is only one person who perfectly fulfilled the demands of God, so that you would not try but rather receive what He did on the cross on your behalf. He is called Jesus. I know He is like a theory to your dull heart and a doctrine encoded in your Church book for reading sake. He loves you with high-octane love, to personally display His life through you as you rest in His power, through the indwelling Holy Spirit. Does that sound too good to be true? Hear Paul, the Apostle of grace echoing this truth;

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

I am being blunt because it hurts when you’ve turn house of prayer into a prison where people worship you like God. I mean you are the center of your religion – many have come before you and walked in the same route you have chosen, but because wisdom was denied from them, their pride was their fall. I hope you will not tear this letter into pieces; you will never learn wisdom if you’re thinking, I am not a theologian to emphasize on doctrinal issues.

More importantly, I have so many things to ask you but let me leave you with this; you taught us to love our neighbor but we never loved our neighbors from different denominations. I thought the Church is a living organism; bigger than your little Chapel at the store front, which has been customized into an attacking arena, and a lambasting Club against other Churches you deemed as “unspiritual and not part of your assembly” instead of turning it into a greener pasture for hungry souls and a spiritual extension of all the local Churches which calls on the name of the Lord.

I hope you’ve stopped exalting yourself before vulnerable people who thinks Godliness is rooted in your platinum deals and the wealth you’ve surrounded yourself with, instead of Christ. Please don’t vex; I am not trying to tell you what to do or to be mean. Am just throwing light on things you’ve probably not paid too much attention. I am not in any way envious or jealous of your wealth and prosperity. It is truly the will of God that we prosper – I am very much concerned about your lack of desire to exalt Christ before the eyes of people who are so hungry for the truthPhoto Credit: Google image which sets free. I know too well that, it is through the preaching of the gospel, that one can experience the quality life of God.

Since I left you and your religion; many of your prisoners call me a heretic and disown me like their ancestors disown Jesus, because He ate with sinners and the ugliest in society. I would have falling into the ditch of your pettiness, had I not been aware of the good and favorable opinion of God towards me. I am loved, accepted and highly favored by my Father in heaven and His perfect love cast out all my fears…there is no time to waste being consumed by your rumor mongering tactics. I never woke up without praying for you…because His love compels me to do so, than to nurse bitterness and resentment.

I know change is coming your way; which will blow your socks off. For the first time you will know how God loves you unconditionally, independent of your performance and Church traditions. This joy will set you in motion for the deeper life; in and out. I know how we faked up righteousness, holiness, peace, joy, sanctification for others to appreciate us of living the life, but the struggle on the inside was very hurting. I know how you feel because we were in it together. Swallow your pride and let Jesus takes the wheel for an effortless journey of resting on His ability through the highways and byways. If that sound too good you want to hear more of the sound of amazing grace in your ears, please let’s meet at ihop and have some conversation. Lots of love to you!

Yours sincerely
