Where Is Your Armour of Light?

[Romans  13:12,14] KJV  “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.  … But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”


The end of the times of lukewarmness and Spiritual Identity Crisis is nigh.
Let’s not keep dormant that spark of light which was lit in our inner man upon our new birth. That would be as a neatly folded beautiful garment one possesses, yet he walks about without it, in a setting where it is required to be worn.

In a dark and perverse generation, where darkness tirelessly deploys its ammunitions and devices upon the sons of God, shining as the stars which we are is not a choice, but a necessity. Thank GOD that we have not been left at the mercy of the cruelty of darkness,  for we have The garment of armour, even of light, called ‘The Lord Jesus Christ.’ Hallelujah!

Ask me “why is my light not shining?“, and I will in turn ask you “Where is your armour of light?” Where is the Lord Jesus Christ in your life? Has he been kept in  your wardrobe , in the inner reccesses of your being, as a neatly-hanged ‘light-armour’ ? Or He has been rightly drawn from within and put on to illuminate this darkness around?  [selah]


Dearly beloved of God, we are not after the order of the “twinkle twinkle little stars”, but after the order of “The Bright Morning Star”. Let us put and keep on our armour of light and shine like never before.

The Lord grant us Grace. Shalom!

[John 17:1, 6] KJV “…Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: … I have MANIFESTED thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: … ”
Manifestation is a vital sign and an outward work to be showed forth by all TRUE sons. The name of the FATHER – “YAHWEH”, must be manifested to the world.
Dear son of GOD, what are you waiting for?  [selah]

Have a manifestative week, even in the coming month.
Shalom!;)👍

​Stand-Out In Your Profession!👌

[Col 3:23 (ISV) ] “Whatever you do, work at it wholeheartedly as though you were doing it for the Lord and not merely for people.”
Some “trötrö mates” (commercial bus conductors) are so caring and professional. I have seen the daily operational activities of most bus conductors, but in the early hours of today, I spotted one who displayed some professionalism and care in his work. He alighted and approached a prospective passenger to help him with his luggage, waited for the passenger to get on the bus, and gently handed over the luggage to him. The luggage didn’t look very bulky and heavy though.

From a different perspective,  this act may be seen as a marketing strategy. Cool, yet it’s still professional and caring, in the field of work in question.

Today, seek out to be professional in your work, and care for others by helping them. Your ‘little’ help might go a long way to correct a certain false perception one may have about others. It may perhaps spark up a certain dormant hope of the ability of God to send helpers one’s way. The list could go on and on.

Just do whatever you do as though you were doing it for God. Remember, man was made in His image.

Just decide to Stand Out!

Perfection!

Tags

Eph 4:13 (KJV) ” Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ”

Hallelujah!!!

” Perfection isn’t necessarily a high inaccessible mountain to prove man’s weaknesses, but it is a place of all wholeness and completeness that Christ can bring a man to, where hitherto the natural man can never attain.

Beloved in the Lord, while they keep saying ‘No man can be perfect, we keep confessing ‘we are being perfected’. ”

Your vital experience as a ‘Perfect Man’ is attainable in Christ!

Set your heart aright towards ‘Perfection’.

Shalom!

Come Up Thither! – The Mount Experience  (No Distance in the Spirit)

Part 3 – The Mount Experience  (No Distance in the Spirit)

Numbers 11: 26 (KJV) ” But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.”

The opening scripture accounts how that two of the elders of Israel that were selected and invited for the heavenly experience with God did not show up physically for the meeting on the mountain  ( for which ever reason(s), we are not told ). Despite their absence, we see that something notable happened to them in the place they were located as at the appointed time for a heavenly assembly unto God.

One heartwarming fact to know is, when God has you on His list, whatever experience you need to have will meet you up, wherever you are, as far as you are still on course and in tune.

In this light, we need to understand that when God adds you to a commission, or a ministry,  just set your heart right and be in sync wherever you find yourself at any point in time, the experience of the fellowship will be your vital experience too, wherever you are.

The Apostle John was on the rocky island of Patmos with a lot of folks, ranging from all manner of hard-core prisoners to political offenders of the Roman empire, yet he had a call to come up for a heavenly experience, amisdt that harsh environment (He was still on course). He narrates “I John, …was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet …and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” Revelation  1:9-10, 4:1 (KJV)

In the same way, we also, could receive a heavenly experience. All you need to do is to ‘be in the spirit’, as the Apostle John affirms “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet” Revelation 1:10 (KJV). Thank God we already live in the Spirit. Hallelujah!!! Romans  8:9 a (KJV) emphatically states “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.”

Let this consciousness be in constancy in your heart and mind. I tell you, you may be the next in line for a special heavenly encounter with The Lord.

God bless you for being a part of the series “Come Up Thither”.

Shalom!

Come Up Thither! – Positioning For Selection and Invitation.

Part 2 – Positioning For Selection and Invitation

Ex 24:1 (kjv)
“And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel”

What criteria of men does God seek to open up this heavenly phenomenon to? Initially,in the journeying of the people of Israel, the upward experience on the mountain was opened up to one man only-Moses. But later on, God extended this gracious privilege to a number of people as well.

Aside the man Aaron who was a biological relation of the man of God Moses, there were also them that were known as the Elders of Israel. Combing through the Pentateuch, a careful look at their lives point out that their attitude towards their man of God Moses, and the work of the ministry made them stand out, catching the attention of God to be invited by Grace. (It must be understood first of all, that it is by a work of Grace to be selected, but also, one’s attitude toward the things of God puts a person in a position to receive that grace.)

Before we proceed, a simple understanding of how God works with people must be brought to light. He does not move with crowds of people at a time. The Word of God shows how he picks up one man, works on him, then makes him a company of people to execute the divine assignment he has fashioned them for. As a case-study, and a shadow, we see Moses, Elisha, David and ultimately the man JESUS had their lives and ministries follow after the pattern of this principle. (Moses and the elders, Elisha and the sons of the prophets, David and his mighty men, and Jesus and his twelve disciples)

Right from the first assignment God gave Moses, these men, however ‘crazy’ Moses would have sounded to narrate that God (whom they thought had neglected them) had appeared to him, sent him with a ‘stick’ to command the ‘super-power’ of the century – Pharaoh to release the people of God, someway somehow believed the word and rallied behind him.

God however seeing the disposition of their hearts did not hesitate to enlist them in his guests for a holy banquet, and ultimately imparting them with the same spirit he placed in Moses the man of God.

Numbers 11:25 accounts “And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders…”

One thing to note is that to be selected and invited by God into the heavenlies is not a matter of a ‘fun-fair’  nor ‘window-shopping’. It has everything to do with the dream of God, a transgenerational work that has to be carried out upon the earth, via the work of the ministry.

Wanting to have a special heavenly invitation is a graciously honorable thing to desire, but what is your motive? are you one who has God’s dream at heart? seeking to see God’s eternal dream fulfilled? Selah

Come Up Thither!  – The Invitation

Part 1- The Invitation

(Photo credit : google.com)

Exodus 19:20 (kjv) “And the Lord came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.”

One thing God never ceases to do is to throw invitations to men to come up to Him, unto a higher plane in Him. “… the Lord said to Moses, ‘Come up to me on the mountain…’ Ex 24:12 (NIV)
What a Gracious opportunity it was for Moses, to have been invited by God for a meeting and experience up high, from the ‘usual’ daily experiences. This invitation was what opened Moses up to see and receive of heavenly patterns after which the people of God needed to order their lives, living heaven on earth. Nonetheless, the possibilty of the experience lied with Moses. The opening scripture accounts “… and Moses went up.” That is to say, He responded to and honoured the invitation.

God however did not reserve this privilege to the early prophets alone (old testament), he gave same opportunity by Grace to us too, as we see in the lives of the Apostles Paul and John (new testament).

In the second epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, the second verse of the twelfth chapter reveals that Apostle Paul was “…such an one caught up to the third heaven.” 

John had a divine invitation to go up to the heavenlies for an experience and to bring to the church a full revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the fourth book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ , John, the Apostle narrates  “...and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here…”

The good news is, the Invitations have not ceased. God is still inviting men to come up for an experience in the heavenlies. Are we invited too?
(Stay tuned for Part 2)

Boundless Service

You can always make a contribution to someone’s success, in your own little way, whether they are in your ‘significant others’ or your ‘generalized others’. You don’t necessarily need to tell them ‘hey, i want to help you achieve that great goal’.  You can recommend them to others. When you can ,publish their seemingly insignificant yet impactful achievements, and Pray for them (which you always can). In summary, you can serve anybody from anywhere, from near or far, knowingly or unknowingly.  JUST BE A BLESSING TO PEOPLE!

Psalms 53:2 (BBE)

“God was looking down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any who had wisdom, searching after God.”

‘Basic’ Wisdom is simply setting one’s heart to pursue one’s creator – God.

What is your heart chasing after?

What is the disposition of your heart?

Are you on the WISE course?

Keep searching if you already are, for he that seeketh findeth. If you are not, then Now is the TIME to make things right… Re-channel your heart’s course.

Shalom!👍😉
