At The Dawn Of Friendships


At the dawn of friendship and more

i was an insane man at will, dwelling in caves

At the dawn of friendship and more I was a Joseph

In a cistern, without the coat of many colours

But many woes and more.


The Beloved knocked

on my doors.

”Love has no boundaries. Friendships are born not only in good times but in darker hues of days too.”


But Who runs to the cottage of misfits for a bowl of friendship on this side of town, sir?


”When love leads everywhere is home, and everyone is a friend, a brother, a sister and a song to sing out loud”

Soul soars like an eagle at once, into realms of soft joys; slapped by loves fragrances


He will be at your door today. He will be at your doors today, O’ pieces of rugs and reproach, he’s near

Please, don’t shut your door against him because the neighbour rehearsed his disgust in thy ears, that no one will come, that no one cares

”At the dawn of Friendships, I broke my own door, wiped my disbelief and welcomed the fragrant one.”


Come inside,

I have waited forever

Come inside,

We are forever,

O’ Gardener of the souls garden

Your love is unparalleled.

Welcome Home, My Child

When humanity drifts away from the very presence he was created to enjoy an intimate relationship with his source of reality, he wanders in restlessness.

“So Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod [wandering], east of Eden.” Genesis 4:16 AMPC


Will COVID-19 draw us back to the Eden of God presence? A perfect paradise, where the spirit of regenerated men dances in the harmonic melodies of the whispers of a loving Father. I sense this deep beckoning in the spirit realm. An invitation of the Spirit of the creator for mankind to return to the original place of sacred communion with the Father. It is in this realm of intimacy you and I find authentic power and strength to live the quality life.

Cain represents a generation that wanders away from the perfect plan, the perfect place, and the perfect presence in Elohim, devoid of his glory. In God’s ultimate plan we were to be a people of His presence for the sheer purpose of reproducing the nature of God for His glory, in all of our endeavours. In His presence is the fullness of joy, and at his right hand of administration, we find eternal pleasures to overrule the dictates of the kingdom of darkness.

The multifaceted presence of the Lord can be actualized in our lives today, through a deep longing for the old pathway of staying consistently and intimately in the presence of God through heartfelt prayers and partnership with the Holy Spirit, else we wander perpetually in fear and despair, far away from where rare peace is supplied unabated.

There is a mystical river which flows from God’s presence and we find deep satisfaction within our souls when we are near, our cups are drawn in, drinking to our fill. Regardless of the inconsistencies around us our cups shall not run dry. The psalmist speaks about this river…

“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].” Psalm‬ ‭46:4-5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Today, your Heavenly Father is inviting you and I to journey back to the streams of the spiritual river of his presence, the secret place of God, to rededicate ourselves through the spiritual medium of prayer, and fellowship in the spirit. The world has nothing to offer us. This pandemic has proven to us that all of the little idols we have depended on over the years were an illusion, but the reality is found only in the time we invest in His presence.

The multifaceted presence of God when encountered has the potency of raising ordinary men and women to become an end-time army of God who will exercise dominion and power over the rule of Satan. Do you want to become a true expression of the mystery of the vast possibilities of God in this life, in the midst of the odds? Let’s humbly pray to the Lord 👇🏾 today in the expectation that he will revive our spirits so we can return to him, draped with passion ❤️


Dear Father God,

I have wandered far from you

My heart is empty, my mind is

Filled with earthy pleasures, and I

Have no desire in me to seek you

or to know you intimately as my Lord

I have slipped far away from you

but I trust you are mighty to save when we call

From the deepest depths of our wanderings

You’re my salvation, Lord Jesus. I sincerely

ask you to save me from myself:

Help me mortify my flesh, and I will die completely from the pleasures of this life.

I want to be captivated by your presence

Yes, I want to be completely yours;

And my entire existence with you, and you alone

Investing my time and my energies

By the virtue of the Holy Spirit Set my soul free from the chains of Of a prayer-lessness life, to be a lover of all you have to offer

Dear Lord,

I rededicate my life to you

I rededicate my heart for prayer

I dedicate my heart for revelation

I dedicate my time for the word

I want to be a deposit of heaven

I want to become a pursuer of your

Presence, and a true expression of

Your power and dominion on this side of life, so help me Lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray.

Amen!

REAL QUESTIONS


Real questions, allow us to process or to look at things from a different window. You can open up to yourself or to the world questionsregarding these questions. My idea is not to get your answers through this channel. My aim is to help you have self talk, until you arrive at a place where you can view life from the lenses of God’s word. Why these particular questions, McDaniels? I have personally ask myself these questions, so many times the last few weeks or more.

One of the dominant thought or process flaming through my heart, within my personal journey, is the question of relevancy of Christianity to our daily life. It seems we are so indulged in the ritualistic aspect of Christianity, and by so doing most of us has lost our bearing in our pilgrim journey. Christianity should make sense to the pilot just as it make sense to the caveman. I will be sharing my soul in subsequent posts. But for the mean time…the questions!

1. Do you love showing off?
2. Do you love the Church or your Pastor?
3. Is Christianity real and relevant to you?
4. Are you so religious but empty?
5. What is your purpose here?
6. Are you happy?
7. Does life make sense to you?
8. Have you forgiven yourself?
9. Are you trying so hard to please people?
10. Have you tried something new of late?

11. How may I help you?

Ritual vs Reality 


bio_major[1]There are a few things quite so boring as being religious, but there is nothing quite so exciting as being a Christian! Most folks have never discovered the difference between the one and the other, so that there are those who sincerely try to live a life they do not have, substituting religion for God, Christianity for Christ, and their own noble endeavors for the energy, joy, and power of the Holy Spirit. In the absence of reality, they can only grasp at ritual, stubbornly defending the latter in the absence of the former, lest they be found with neither! They are lamps without oil, cars without gas, and pens without ink, baffled at their own impotence in the absence of all that alone can make man functional; for man was so engineered by God that the presence of the Creator within the creature is indispensable to his humanity. Christ gave Himself for us to give Himself to us! His presence puts God back into the man! He came that we might have life – God’s life!”

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]

DESPERATE FOR GOD?


“True Christianity is not about feeling a sense of hopelessness-desperation for God’s attention. In Christ Jesus, we have 24/7 relentless love and caring attention of our heavenly Father. Our faith is not a stimuli to evoke a speedy reaction from God, but rather our faith embraces and appropriates whats He has already done through the finish work of Christ Jesus, on Calvary cross”
