Unity In The Holy Spirit

Self-Will Is Not An Expression Of God’s Will

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:3 NIV).

Notice: We are sharing an IMPORTANT Vision and Warning from the Lord here. Also, the vision regarding Mr Cyril Ramaphosa which we shared on 20 August 2017 has now been partially fulfilled. Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ His Words never fails!

The above scripture is the original intention of the Lord that there be unity in the administration of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. While the Lord ensures the unity of the Spirit by directing the activities of the Holy Spirit (John 16:14), it is some members of the Body who wants to control how the Spirit of God should operate as is it evident today. Having being exposed to ministry life for more than 15 years, we have observed how certain man and women of God acts up to make the Spirit of God acts according their expectations.

What we mean is this, some ministers motivated by their own desires are in the habit of ‘prophesying’ or saying things and expects the Lord to ‘perform’ through the Holy Spirit. In other words, in a self-inflated authority without humility they ‘obliges’ God to perform whether His will allows or disallows it (1 Corinthians 12:11). Let me briefly share an experience we had a few years ago, my wife and I heard about a certain person who was drugged against his will and this rendered the person in a permanent vegetative state.

As it were, we fasted and prayed for the person for a full month expecting the Lord to answer prayer and heal the person. After all our prayers and petitions we asked the Lord should we continue praying for the person, He responded by saying no. It was our desire to see the person healed but none of the person’s immediate family members had faith to trust the Lord to heal their loved one. Consequently, for reason only known by the Lord Almighty, He did not answer prayer and the person never received healing. As for us, we expressed faith and genuine expectations but in the end, it is the Will of God that must be satisfied.

However, biblically, the Spirit of God is not under any human control and the Spirit hears from the Lord to act as the Bible states, “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).

Competitiveness In The Body

Now brethren, kindly allow me to state this, it is sad to see how certain Churches are ‘selling’ the gifts of the Holy Spirit to attract more members and what is a fact is that the members are often blamed for a lack of faith when they are unable to receive what they hoped for. It is true that our lack of faith denies us blessings from the Lord, but we also need to discern if the faith of the person did not rest on the messenger rather than on God (Acts 14:9).

Additionally, there is also a general competitiveness amongst Christians as to the kind of Church they attend, the kind of attire culture and the availability of some entertainment value to appease the flesh (2 Timothy 3:4). In the Lord, a Christian is not defined by how loud we are, or how good we sound, or how best we portrays ourselves, the true hallmark of a servant is expressed in humility, obedience with a consistent attitude of being faithful (Philippians 2:7).

In conclusion, the Lord revealed to me in a vision on the 14 December 2017, that many Christians envy the gifts that others have while they overlook and fails to work on their gift(s) (1 Timothy 4:14). In the vision the Lord also revealed to me that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are important and these gifts serves His purpose and nobody should disregard the value and importance of any gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:21-31; Romans 12:8).

If you desire to accept Christ as Saviour and Lord we have a suggested Prayer of Sincere Repentance to get you started on a new way of life leading to Eternal life and for any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, you may please contact us.

Love, The Drawing Power Of God

So he answered and said, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself’ ” (Luke 10:27 NKJV).

Often, these words of great inner transformation are being ignored by Christians because most think that the Lord was just making a statement. To understand and apply this message into our lives we need to deliberate, meditate and internalise this message. In other words, we should bring this message closer to our hearts and own it so that the effect of this command should take root and possess our inner being by releasing the energy of this love in our hearts.

What is Love and Where Does it Originate?

Briefly, love is being defined as a variety of different feelings of strong attraction to someone or something. Therein is trust, peace and security with a comfort that this force of love has no end. As we know, love in any relationship often starts with a promise of lasting endurance, but as a relationship matures our promise of long lasting faithfulness changes into a conditional love, which we base on the promise, actions, and commitment of the other party, and often with selfish and unrealistic demands.

Unfortunately, love is not without ‘eyes’ and it was never meant to operate blindly. Biblically, love has built-in values which should manifest spontaneously when duty calls. The Bible gives us in the book of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 some distinct characteristics of love and any absence of any of these creates an imbalance leading to an incomplete love. In this context, I find no distinction that love should be departmentalized to apply differently to God, family or our neighbours. If it would, we would not be operating on the full force of love as Scripturally defined (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). In our giving of love to others, we sow and a return is guaranteed (Galatians 6:7; Luke 6:38). Like we said in the Good Manners article, love works in co-operation with respect and some of the values we discussed.

Brethren, we cannot emphasise enough that the Christian faith is meaningless unless we prove it through love and the outworking of the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives (Romans 5:5; Galatians 5:22). The Lord likens Christians to a tree which attracts people by the good fruit it bears and a bad tree is for the fire (Matthew 7: 16-20). A good and ideal Christian finds his or her fruits from the Vine, which is Christ (John 15:1-4). In contrast an abrasive, rude and an unkind Christian dwells in the parched land and away from the fruitfulness and nourishment found in Christ alone (Jeremiah 17:6). In Christ love dwells and in a Christian love should blossom as an attractive force of peace and comfort (Philippians 4:7). As we mention in the Experiencing True Peace article, where there is no peace, there is no love because these two fruits co-exist (Galatians 5:22). The Bible says God is love (1 John 4:16). Therefore, with God being love who lives in us, why are we allowing hateful feelings, slander and deceitful living to control us? Are we desiring good and bad to walk with us (Matthew 6:24)? If that is our position, the fullness of God’s Goodness will give way, for light have no companionship with darkness (2 Corinthians 6:15-16).

Identifying the Dark Patches that Clouds our Souls

We are warned in the Bible not associate with sexually immoral Christians (1 Corinthians 5:9-11), those who have a form godliness but deny its power (2 Timothy 3:5), and bad company which corrupts good character (1 Corinthians 15:33; 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 NASB). Otherwise, are we always trying to avoid the company of someone we know? If yes, why? I’m sure you have the answer for that. Whatever our reasons, can we truly say that we are loving God and showing love to that person? The full force of love, which has been packaged by God to resist unlovingness, has built-in values and will always defy human reason and feelings in its quest to fulfil its destiny. What I mean is when love compels against the danger of rejection, reason cease and love fulfils (2 Corinthians 5:14). This tells us that love is not selfish and it NEVER FAILS! It fulfils. In addition, when we operate by our will to decide on love, we give conditionally; but when we give by the will of the Holy Spirit, our lower nature suffers and the Spirit fulfils. This is beautifully summed up by what the Apostle Paul when he said, “Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God” (Romans 8:12-14 NIV). If ‘we have an obligation’, the Holy Spirit is supposed to control us and when He controls, why do we give love short?

The Bible says that fear is an obstruction to love (1 John 4:18); that is why some people are afraid to love. They reason that others might take advantage of them. Are we not sometimes taking advantage of the Lord’s great love for us when we sin or disobey wilfully? Yes, we do! Are we not sacrificing love, a continuing debt we owe (Romans 13:8), which is our obligation and fulfilling fear, which is our distraction? Our will must serve the requirements of Scripture (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

Furthermore, are you always trying to be right and never wrong and rejecting correction while self-serving? Do you pursue quarrels and always in a self-pity mood? By examining yourself, you might find that you don’t have love in yourself because you are taking and not giving. Brethren, while this is not a good rebuke to share but for the benefit of everybody, the Lord rebuked a sister sharply for her lack of love, saying that “My daughter Dawn (not real name) does not have love in herself”. This was a deep rebuke that exposed the patches of anger, hatefulness, selfishness and rejection of the Holy Spirit, who equals love, God and Christ (Romans 8:9-10). In the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ also showed that rejecting Him and seeking glory and recognition from men while failing to seek glory from God displays that a Christian is lacking the word of God and love within themselves (John 5:37-44).

Where to Find and Grow Love

We have all been naturally endowed with basic love to show care to our children and immediate families. However, love to serve others and to treat others with dignity as brethren is found in God alone. By serving and asking God we grow love as He prunes it to develop fully. This is also evident in the animal realm and their love is observed by the care and protection they give to their young (Job 39:1-3; Matthew 23:37). In some occasions in the Bible, animals even show love for God and care for human beings (Numbers 22:21-30; 1 Kings 17:2-6; Jonah 1:17; 2:10). Unlike animals, humans love is dynamic, transitional and incomplete. Our love has a Source, God through Christ (1 John 4:8; John 3:16) and Biblically if we have no union with Christ, there is no God and no Spirit no love (1 John 4:8; Romans 8:9; John 13:20). This truly sets Christianity apart from other religions who are founded on cultural values. We know culture yields laws and if violated punishment, but in Christ, however, we are commanded to love and love covers over a multitude of sin (1 Peter 4:8).

The Lord’s love is real and having been a loveless person myself through my past life of hateful feelings and violence, I gave up my old life to follow the Lord’s ways. In being a Christian, I learned that my love was growing as I walked closer with the Lord. Therefore, the more we spend time in God’s Presence through prayer, worship, church services and Bible reading, the more we generate love (James 4:8). By Word reading, we develop the reality and discernment regarding what love really should be. Human love is interest driven and being fickle we are always looking for the gratification of our ever increasing desires for more and these serve as distractions. God purposely allowed the various distractions (Matthew 13:29) to test our endurance as He refines the dross from the pure gold (1 Peter 1:7). Like we said, operating from two or more personalities stifles the Holy Spirit, which hinders our walk and giving strength to our lower nature to dominate us (Romans 8:13-14). Love is the Golden Key to Heaven and we MUST possess it in abundance. As the love of many is growing cold in these last days (and indeed this is evident everywhere around the world) we encourage you to have love in yourself to give and attract the lost to Christ. Love is the greatest Cause, the single unifier of the human race. All people can identify with the force of love, for it is the only remedy known to man that calms the storms of life in the troubled human soul. This love, is God's gift to us that brought us peace (Romans 5:8; Isaiah 53:5).

In conclusion, have you been failing to seek God daily and remain in the Lord Jesus Christ, the true vine, that you may bear good fruit (Galatians 5:22; John 15:1-5)? Have you been skipping your personal time with the Lord and yielding bad fruit and cold love (Jeremiah 17:6; John 15:6)? If so, seek the Lord in repentance while loving Him and others as yourself (Luke 10:27).

If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please get started by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments about this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed love in fear of God,

Fulfilling Hope

Hope That Never Fails

After our Lord ascended to Heaven He told us, "I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you "...the world will not see Me, but you will see Me..." (John 14:18-19 NKJV). In this instance the Lord gave us hope of His indwelling Holy Spirit and the Hope of such a promise.

Furthermore, in Romans we read "For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it  patience" (Romans 8:24-25). In another Scripture, we are encouraged that "...according to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" (1 Peter 1:3).

Brethren, this kind of article is needed Christ our hope needs our attention daily! Let's hope in Him and not just on the advancement of our earthly careers. When our years winds down and our bodies becoming weary, when our careers starts or end and when the Lord comes or death catches up with us, hope will be there as security to our futures. Let us continue to hope in Christ His precious promises are unshakeable. Now, the above Scriptures remind us of God's eternal promises. There is no good promise of God that ever failed. Throughout the history of Israel, the Lord gave them many promises which served as hope that carried them and their descendants well into the future (Isaiah 43:1-13). The Lord Almighty created hope through His promises, which are vested in His faithfulness and holiness. This is a hope based on genuine faith. It is not just a mere wish for something, but in essence it is placing a strong confidence in God's abilities to fulfill our hopes and expectations (Psalm 42:5; 71:5; Romans 4:18; Hebrews 11:1). Eternal Glory be to Yahweh!

Given to our ever-changing environment politically and otherwise it is always so tempting to for us as people to put our hope in other things than on the Lord, and this results in us moving subtly away from the Lord. In addition, while we are writing about hope, there is need to mention faith as a co-pillar of our Christian belief in this article. Faith and hope are inseparable (Romans 5: 1-5; Galatians 5:5; 1 Peter 1:21). Therefore those without God have no faith nor any hope in the promises God has for "...those who through faith and patience inherit the promises" (Hebrews 6:11-12 NKJV).

What is Our Greatest Hope as Christians?

Some 22 years ago, I was living in an apartment in Johannesburg city centre. Due to economic conditions I lost my first job through retrenchment. I got my last pay cheque and paid my rent, and I used some of the money to buy myself a bed. I did not panic of losing my apartment; I hoped in the Lord to bless me with a new job and after prayer and fasting, my hope was met and I got blessed with a new and better paying job. Naturally, people with no faith run to man for help and not to the Lord; this is their greatest loss.  Unfavorable  circumstances should require us to act by faith, hoping on God's flawless promises. I don't want to sound like a prosperity teacher; however, the Lord promised to supply our needs (Matthew 7:7; Philippians 4:19), to heal us (Isaiah 53:5-6), and He also promised us Heaven and eternal life (John 3:16; 14:2-4). The only condition being obedience (John 15:7).

Moreover, our greatest hope is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, when we will experience the fullness of our salvation and enter with the Lord into the glory of the new age (1 Corinthians 15:19-23; Ephesians 1:18; Colossians 1:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:8). As it is, for the Christian to have the hope of the Lord's return means to eagerly look forward into the future, and the basis of such hope is our Lord's atoning death and His glorious resurrection. Therefore our Lord's entrance into His glory guarantees our entrance and glory (Colossians 1:5; Hebrews 6:19; 1 Peter 1:18-21).

I would like to add this: "By its very nature, hope means that the thing hoped for has not yet arrived. Christ has not yet returned, so Christians must have patience as we wait for our final salvation. We have received God's promises and the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 11:1, 39-40; Romans 8:23-25). This patience therefore has no element of doubt, for our hope is the anticipation of something that is absolutely certain. Like I alluded elsewhere, God confirms the hope of salvation by giving us His Holy Spirit. We have a living hope within us until the day our hope is fulfilled. The Holy Spirit is God's mark of permanent ownership upon our lives (2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30).

Finally, the hope we have received from the Lord gives our lives purpose and stability (Romans 15:13; Colossians 3:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 1:3). Having said that, we should work hard through prayer and obedience to keep ourselves free from sin because our day of salvation is also our day of reckoning (1 John 3:2-3; Matthew 24:45-46; 2 Corinthians 5:10).

In closing, may the word of the Lord through these short, weekly articles increase your faith and hope in Christ Jesus our Lord. Remember, He is the One who commands what we should write and He knows about you. Take heart, the Lord is near!

If you are not yet born again, here is a Prayer of Sincere Repentance to get you started in this great journey of hope. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed Hope,

Brother Glenn.

Faith to Believe

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV).

Notice: As a family and ministry, we would like to heartily thank you in the Lord our most loyal brethren and readers on this platform for the positive feedback, encouragement, love and prayers we have been receiving over the past few weeks. The Lord knows how your messages of encouragement is lifting us up. Being filled with faith ourselves, we know that the good flowing from your hearts to us through those wonderful messages comes from the Lord Himself (James 1:17). We therefore urge you to continue praying for us so that we will continue faithfully in all the Lord's work. Now this week, we are sharing a simple but very important message about faith without it we know from the Bible that salvation, gifts of the Holy Spirit and the supply of needs would be impossible to attain. Brethren, we can assure you that the Lord will continue to provide some great messages and revelations on this website to ensure your readiness for His soon Coming.

Let's reason from the Word of God, the Bible tells us that having faith, that is, believing and trusting God without any reservations, is an important prerequisite for receiving anything from God. The Bible further reminds us that as we believe, so it shall be according to our faith.

He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you” (Matthew 9:29 NKJV).

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive” (Matthew 21:22 NKJV).

On the other hand, expressing doubt in God, who is the I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:14), and not believing that with Him all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), amounts to a lack of faith and we have no hope of expecting any results to our prayers. As much as faith is a gift from God, it is a choice that we should exercise and we know God is very pleased with a person who has faith in Him (Hebrews 11:6).

Before you express contentment and complacency to this message, please read on you stand to gain. Faith is an active consciousness about God, His will and His love for us. In essence we all need a message of faith, because no amount of faith is ever going to be enough (Luke 17:5). The absence of faith brings about hopelessness, doubt and spiritual stagnation. Therefore, we should keep growing in our faith! The Bible says that as diverse as the various members of the body are for the good of the whole body, the gifts are likewise diversified for our edification and maturity in our faith (1 Corinthians 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-13). There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord (1 Corinthians 12:4-5 NKJV).

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ… (Ephesians 4:11-13 NKJV).

Having faith in God involves acquiring Bible knowledge to know Him better and to trust Him to protect us against our fears and insecurities. It is indeed true that the message about faith is ancient, going as far back as the first generation of our faith fathers (Hebrews 11:4). True faith is not simply based on a confession and a belief in a Supreme Being. No! Such faith is casual and hopelessly fruitless because it is neither based on a relationship nor does it give us a fear for God or bring about a change in our character. In other words, simply believing in God, without being committed to obey Him, is not enough; even the demons believe—and tremble with terror and trepidation! (James 2:19).

A living faith is active, fruitful and rewardful (Hebrews 11:6). However, a mere confession of faith without an active commitment holds no hope or reward. Therefore, this kind of faith is equivalent to atheism because an atheist says: “I do not believe in the existence of a God, so I am not going to obey Him or do anything He requires from me!” A person with such an attitude is self-seeking and without hope. An atheist hopes that there is no God so that they may not be held accountable for their sins and lack of faith. For us, faith connects us to a relationship, commitment, and responsibility towards God (James 2:14-26). The Bible clearly says that without faith it is impossible to please God. If we come to God, we must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).

Let us consider an example of faith in the Bible and especially Joseph's experience in Egypt (Genesis 41). When Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream, being pagan, Pharaoh believed Joseph’s message and acted by faith allowing Joseph to implement decisions to save Egypt from starvation, and he subsequently set Joseph in charge over all the land of Egypt (Genesis 41:37-41). Unlike today, if Pharaoh doubted Joseph’s message it would have led to the destruction of Egypt and the then known world (Genesis 41:53-57).

Faith for Salvation

How does faith leading to salvation come about? Well the Bible says first, faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17) and when we hear the Word of God, conviction from the Holy Spirit brings about a godly sorrow and repentance, and God who knows our hearts grants us grace to accept His gift of faith and forgiveness (Ephesians 2:8; 2 Corinthians 7:10). By the preceding Scriptures, we noted that no one inherits faith automatically, the Word of God is the foundation (Mark 4:15; Jeremiah 31:30; Ezekiel 18:20; Galatians 6:5). Therefore, by accepting God’s gift of faith through the invitation of the Word, this led to our salvation. So on our part, we are required to wait for our redemption while we exercise or work on our faith, which is ‘proof’ of God’s Presence in us by our transformed ways and renewed inner intentions (Colossians 3:10; (Romans 12:2; John 15:8; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 John 3:9)).

Faith for Ministry

As for ministry work, we learn from the Bible that God does the calling of people and anoints them accordingly to do the work He needs done (Exodus 31:1-6; Leviticus 8:12; John 1:32; Acts 13:2). In other words, God does the calling and the anointing, which determines the kind of work we are called to do. Over the years, many believers have written to us asking how they could recognize the call of God upon their lives. Still others even asked that we inquire from the Lord on their behalf and ask Him about their ministry callings. In some instances, because of their lack of faith, some people that we inquired for from the Lord did not even realize that the work they were currently doing in the body was from Him! In response to them, the Lord rebuked them for their lack of faith and discernment. Often, some of these believers thought that the Lord would have said that He called them to be prophets or evangelists, thinking only of the official ministry offices. The Lord told us that no ministry activity in the body of Christ is inferior to the other ministry gifts, all work for Him enjoys the same importance (1 Corinthians 12:21). Scripturally, the Lord designed the various gifts to serve just one purpose, and that is to “equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13). When we are involved in any type of ministry work, we do so for His sake (Luke 9:50; 12:34).

Sadly, there are some brethren who are still waiting for the ‘formal’ anointing by the laying on of hands by their leaders before they can accept and acknowledge the calling of God in their lives. They will not do ministry work unless they are acknowledged or ‘ordained’ and ‘blessed’ by some church leader. This kind of attitude gives the impression that there is no formal conviction from the Holy Spirit to witness or pray for someone when God presents such an opportunity. Unlike the disciples who had to wait for the gift of the Holy Spirit, when we become born again we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and as we commit our ways to the Lord, He sets us apart for ministry work (Acts 13:2). It is evident from the Scriptures that God does the calling (1 Samuel 3:4), and when He calls, He also anoints us for the task we are called for (Galatians 1:11-12). It is true, the laying on of hands for ministry service is a genuine Biblical practice, however, the calling and anointing is not from the pastor or the person ordaining us, but from the Lord Himself (Acts 13:2). With faith and commitment, we have examples of lay believers in Christ who went out preaching the gospel, healing the sick and driving out demons (Luke 9:50; Acts 8:4). Let us therefore not limit the work of the gospel by thinking that only a few “special” or specific people are anointed or ordained for ministry work. The truth is that all believers are called to serve the Lord, but only those who express willingness and obedience to do the Lord’s work operate by faith (Matthew 22:14; Luke 10:1-3; 17-20).

Faith for Deliverance and Provision

Briefly, in our ministry we have had a few people who were unemployed, sick, and struggling with certain personal habits. By praying and enquiring for them from the Lord, He encouraged some of them to have faith and to others who lacked faith He encouraged to fast if they need a breakthrough and deliverance. Being true to His word, after prayer and fasting some have experienced healing from various sicknesses, others deliverance from sinful habits and demons, and the jobless got employed. When we delight in the Lord and our motives are pure and pleasing to Him, we will receive answer to our prayers (Psalm 37:4; Matthew 7:11; John 15:7).

Faith is a Choice

From what we were trying show is that faith is a choice or an option we should exercise daily. When we have a committed faith in the Lord, we choose to disregard the opinions of others and instead concentrate on our obedience to Him (Daniel 6:10).

We are all aware of some religions, sects or even some “Christian” denominations that use fear as a weapon to force or coerce their followers to submit and act in a certain way. As fellow believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have learned first-hand from our experiences with Him that He never forces His will upon us (Revelation 3:20). Because, forced obedience does not emanate from faith and love, but from fear.

Briefly, please allow me to share with you an experience I had with the Lord on choosing to have faith. A few months after the Lord showed my daughter Charis that a man closely related to my wife was in hell (we have shared this vision on our website, titled as “Visit to Hell), the Lord in His unfailing mercy heard the pleas of his family and He sent us to go and preach the gospel to them. This was something we desired to do after learning of the man’s eternal fate. The day before going to preach to his family, I experienced a very frustrating day at work, and as such I was so upset to the point that I asked the Lord in prayer to release me from going to preach at his (the man who is in Hell) family’s residence. To my amazement, the Lord did not rebuke me for refusing to go where He had sent me. Instead, as a surprise to my wife, He gently gave my wife a message to go and preach to the man’s family. Being overcame with guilt and shame for being disobedient to the Lord, I immediately repented and told my wife that I would go and preach to the man’s family. Since the message that I was going to preach was very important, the Lord drew many people to our meeting that evening. In acknowledging my obedience, when the Lord visited Charis that evening, He said: Your father preached with the fire of the Holy Spirit!

Praise be to God who gives us His Spirit without limit (John 3:34), we ought to delight in Him and fear Him! (Isaiah 11:2-3). Let us diligently continue to desire further what it means to fear the Lord.

Are you lacking faith in God in any area of your life? We encourage you, don't lose your faith. God is promised and is able to help you through your situation (Isaiah 41:10). If you desire a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and faith leading to your salvation,  here is a Prayer of Sincere Repentance
to get you started. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Being strengthened With Power Through His Spirit

Godly Power Through The Holy Spirit

 So I ask you not to lose heart over what I am suffering for you, which is your glory. For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith (Ephesians 3:13-16). 

Further below, I will try to explain Ephesians 3:13-16 and to give some key points in the text to show how we can be strengthen and what to avoid towards the brethren when it happens.

We know that our reliance is in the Lord Jesus Christ He has promised to help us and to be with us (John 14:16-17). The Apostle Paul spoke, something powerful to the Church when he revealed the mystery of the Gospel, “Christ in us the Hope of Glory” (Colossians 1:27). Therefore, our strength comes from within us through God’s Spirit.

Additionally, I pray that people may become spiritual and understand why we are here, so that they may think before they speak. I am trying to explain to myself, the life we should live is in the Spirit of God and our spirit is aware of this everyday. You may ask how? The scripture says,"...the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father" (Romans 8:15).

God has formed us in his image and our life must be spiritual (Genesis 1:27). God would not have a child without faith love and power, this is what we were created for to look like his Son Jesus Christ and to be strengthened with the Power of the Holy Spirit. A child of God without power is weak, he need then to feed himself and be renewed day by day but he word of life which is the scripture.

I found out recently some believers who cannot stop getting exited to know the word by heart and tell others or .. trying to show off their knowledge.. but are they really building faith and strengthening the brethren or just like to show off their own knowledge to them.

Once our spirit is strengthened we should communicate and inspire others, instead of pointing out their faults and saying to others “I know better that you attitude”.

Being inspired by God and strengthen by His Spirit we also are inspired to talk to others and our behaviour must be different and of a good manner. The Lord Jesus never spoke a word in vain , the incarnate word of life was perfect in talk and actions. Therefore, the Spirit of God must always be the one that should take over in our lives and to work through us.

As it is, we must be vigilant and be humble when we are inspired and strengthen in the inner man.

What we should guard against is that we should not be always intellectually correct, instead, we should consider a matter well before we speak to others, because it is very easy to be tempted and turn others off (Galatians 6:1). Now, let learn something interesting by this; The Apostle Paul revealed in (Ephesians 3:19) that the Love of Christ surpasses knowledge and we may be filled with the fulness of God.

As a testimony, the apostle Paul demonstrated love as it was evident on how he cared for the brethren and praying for them (Ephesians 1:16). It is also evident through his life that Paul was certainly touched by God deeply to be able to achieve this duty and to comfort the brethren. He even told them that God can do the impossible in their beings and could be filled, even asking God that He may grant them what they ask from Him. He told us that in any circumstances we would be renewed spiritually from our spirit through the Holy Spirit. Paul meant that there were nothing impossible for HIM (God’s Spirit) to do in our lives physically and within (spiritually) and that God was in control (Philippians 4:19).

Once we are accepting to hear from God then a door is open in our hearts(our spirit) to receive what He has planned and all the help we can receive coming from the Holy Spirit dwelling in us(Love from the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, visions , words of knowledge, prophecy..)these are surely what the Lord add to our lives to strengthen us even miracles, signs and wonders, this is why we should not always feel sad, but pursue faith expecting from Him, for He is able!

Furthermore, the Lord Jesus recommend us to be vigilant in prayers (Luke 21:36; Matthew 26:41). We also read that the scriptures encourages us to be always joyful (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) and this comes in us through God’s Spirit and by learning how to be grateful and faithful, (1Timothy 1:12; Revelations 14:12).

The word of life is Spirit (John 6:63) when we read it we must try our best to put it into action or we are not progressing and developing Spiritually. How can a child of God grow and be mature in life if the word of the Master is not understood and put into practice?

This is why many do not understand that to be renewed in the inner man we must obey the Lord and put into practice His teachings (Matthew 7:24-27). the Spirit of Might will work in us and will add things that we never thought before.God may give as He will, gifts, visions, deliverance, blessings.

Finally let us be wise and remain humble this is the key to receive from the Lord and to fear Him daily and to love Him dearly.

For those who are not saved yet, we encourage you to give your life to our Lord Jesus Christ to receive eternal life when you pass from this life by praying this Prayer of Sincere  Repentance. For any questions or comments about this article or our ministry, you may please contact us.

Blessings to all.

Being Ungrateful Displeases The Lord

Expectations For Cravings Not Need

“But godliness with contentment is a great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these” (1 Timothy 6:6-8 HCSB).

We will be very brief with our message this week. The Lord commanded that we share with you this message because in His sight, many people ask and work for things they don’t really need; they just want to have "stuff" because they envy what others have (1 Samuel 8:4-5; Ecclesiastes 4:4). From what is known today, the prosperity teachers encourage envy, greed, laziness, and a demand for more material things from God. They tell people to dream up worldly things and "name it, claim it and receive it!" Unfortunately, they are encouraging a destructive lifestyle that uses God for worldly gain, instead of preparing the saints for a life of worship, holiness and reverent service to God (Ephesians 4:12; 2 Peter 1:5-11). Naturally, we are all ungrateful grumblers! aren't we? Yes, we are never happy about the weather and what we have (Philippians 4:11-13). If I may recall, there were people how asked us to inquire a message for them from the Lord and after hearing the Lord's message they simply remark, 'Is that all He said' or 'I expected Him to say so and so!'.

Personal Ambitions Is Self-Driven

Having experienced first hand the Lord's blessings, while we may have some great expectations in order to stress our faith, the Lord would release an initial blessing first (Genesis 39:22) before unveiling and releasing the ultimate blessings (Genesis 41:41). We need to point out that personal ambitions does not feature in God's plans, He blesses us in accordance with His purpose (Philippians 2:3). When I asked God for a job He did not give me what I expected but I accepted and expressed my thankfulness and a humble attitude He accepts which might lead to a refreshing supply of more blessings. We encourage you dear brethren, the least you have be content for God measures your attitude and hearts condition in trying times (1 Chronicles 29:17; Jeremiah 17:10). Scripturally, we know that personal cravings comes not from an actual need but from a demanding spirit (Numbers 11:4). However, disobedience and faithlessness robs us of God's blessings (2 Chronicles 24:20; Mark 11:24).

Furthermore, the worldly lifestyles many Christians are living today have become the acceptable norm. Brethren, I have news for you: The Lord cannot be forced by man into encouraging a lustful lifestyle and giving us what is unnecessary. Having said this, I am not encouraging or advocating deprivation among Christians, neither does the Lord; He promised to give us our daily bread (Matthew 6:11), meet ALL our needs (Philippians 4:19), and enrich us in every way so that we can be generous on every occasion resulting in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:11). Truthfully, the increase of earthly possessions brings anxiety and the fear of losing it. Additionally, most people nowadays have not learned to acknowledge or believe that the Lord has provided them enough (Ecclesiastes 5:10-12).

Many brethren might not agree with me here, but I must share what the Lord revealed to us. The Lord said that the business principles employed by the world are based on greed, because their aim is to "maximize profit or gain". This is said to be stimulating "growth"; which is true indeed, but to the benefit of the few (investors, shareholders and business executives), while it impoverishes the masses. If you have studied business in college, you are probably familiar with the words "wealth maximization" or "profit maximization", which describe the prime objective of businesses. As it is, this solid rule is being applied blindly even by Christian institutions without questions of conscience. A few people in the church hierarchy (such as senior pastors) usually benefit from business transactions while the lay believers are left used, abused and confused, without any benefits. Biblically, trade among Christians should not be for selfish gain, but to help one another and the needy; we should not be greedy but content (Deuteronomy 23:19, 24-25).

Every person born into this world thinks that they deserve, or are entitled to, everything that is available.  Because of this kind of attitude, we complain, slander and envy (Numbers 11:4). An ungrateful person is driven by a spirit of greed, discontentment and rebelliousness (Numbers 11:4-6). From experience, my brethren, I can tell you that The Lord turns a deaf ear to such an attitude.

In sharp contrast, I have witnessed that the truly humble and grateful inherits blessing, peace and freedom from discontentment. In the Bible, Ruth is one of person who was abundantly blessed for her humility and gratitude. Not only did she leave her family to follow her mother-in-law, but she also humbled herself by picking up leftover grain from the fields. She ended up gleaning in Boaz's field and found favor in his eyes (Ruth 2: 1-14). Through her obedience, she eventually became his wife (Ruth 4:9-12) and was blessed to be an ancestor of Israel’s kings, including The King of Kings --Jesus the Messiah (Matthew 1:1, 5-6). Moses also humbled himself by abandoning his royal privileges to be a shepherd in Midian for 40 years (Exodus 3:1). However, the Lord blessed him with a great calling to go to Pharaoh to bring the Israelites out of Egypt (Exodus 3:10; 6:10) and he found favor in God's eyes.
Greedy Christians

In most of our articles we address Christians, and the Lord has called this ministry to challenge, encourage, rebuke and correct the brethren. Those outside our community of faith have no appreciation for our message; if they did, they would obey the Lord and His teachings (John 10:27; Matthew 7:24-27).

Naturally, as human beings we always have very high expectations from God, and when we ask Him something we expect that He will provide according to our will. Again, in our experience with the Lord, He does not succumb to the human will or pressure; He provides in accordance with our faith, need and for His glory (Philippians 4:19). It is known that human expectations are self-centered and we will always overvalue or overestimate what we really need, and this is a proven fact throughout human history (Exodus 16:18). In the same breath, ungratefulness has led many people to change their physical appearances, jobs, marital partners, ministry calling, and other things in order to match the expectations of others. Therefore, when the need is supplied we develop a need for more; meaning greed takes over; why? The fear of too little troubles us, so greed steps in and controls us. Admittedly, often when the Lord promised me something (and He would use the term "something"), this would always run up my expectations to wild imaginations of great things. When the blessing came it would only be what I needed, and though disappointed, I would accept with a good lesson of contentment.

A Word of Encouragement

Faith is not based on feelings, but on an attitude of trust in God’s ability. Our ever fluctuating emotions and feelings are not a measuring stick for faith; instead, our relationship to Jesus Christ proves our faith by our character. Therefore, the fruit of our faith personifies Christ’ indwelling and the values of society are challenged by a gentle, caring and kind conduct. A life richly lived in Christ by faith shows contentment in all situations (Philippians 4:11-14). Paul said “…..I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”( Philippians 4:11-13).  What we will need is simply just faith in acknowledgment and a grateful attitude to appreciate what was provided. How many of us simply want something because others have it? And how many of us when we have received something undeservingly give it up because it was not what we expected?

Remember our expectations are self-centered and The Lord, who is all-knowing, gives what is needed. Surely, we might get away with manipulating people to meet or match our expectations, but not so with God! Wherefore, a humble spirit is unfading, gentle, gratified and at peace. I would like to conclude with this Scripture: “…godliness with contentment is a great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these” (1 Timothy 6:6-8 HCSB). And remember the Lord said "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear" (Matthew 6:25-24); But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well" (Matthew 6:33). Honor Christ in your conduct and your faith would bear fruit and attraction to Christ!

Vision of God The Father

I had a vision this morning (December 1, 2014). I was outside in a big empty space when I saw a figure of a Man in pure white. His appearance was blurred but I immediately knew it was our Heavenly Father. When I recognized it was Him, I prayed saying, "Father please keep me from
falling!" He did not answer and the vision changed giving me a 3D view. I then saw The Father standing far away, yet close enough, but with His appearance blurred. "Glenn!", He called me by my name in a gentle whispering voice, while looking at me pleasingly. The vision then ended.

I am overwhelmed by His love and gracious care. I did not expect this vision! I love the LORD with all my heart. The LORD knows our future and things that might hinder our walk with Him.  He came to show me what I needed to do, and His answer to my prayer was His presence and reassurance of His love. This same love is available to you as well! (John 3:16-17) All the Lord wants of us is to repent and turn away from our sins, wholeheartedly seek Him and obey His Word. Aren't you grateful for what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us, redeeming us with His precious blood and paying the price for our salvation? I am eternally grateful.

Have you been complaining and expressing a lack of gratitude for your life and the things God has done for or given you? Are you waiting until you “have more” before you can love and be obedient to Christ? If so, please repent. Let us accept and be thankful for the things God has provided, however few we may perceive these; then we will be even more thankful for the many things God will provide (Matthew 25:23) in this life and moreso in heaven. If you would like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and begin the journey of freedom and contentment, here is a Prayer of Sincere Repentance to get you started.

Blessed truth and peace,
Brother Glenn.

God's Precious Gift To Christians, The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit, Power For the Christian

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life (John 6:63 NIV).

I remember the day I read that scripture, when Jesus confirmed many things about our life in Christ.

As we learn and grow in the word, and as we understand the Scriptures with the help of the Spirit of God, it is the like a “signature on a cheque”.

We may say that our Lord Jesus is the perfect example of how the Christian life ought to be lived and His was a walk in the Spirit as opposed to a walk in the flesh.

Additionally, the Lord Jesus mentioned also that the life he spoke of was Spirit and life (John 6:63). It is interesting to see that from the beginning of the New Testament Jesus never spoke about physical things, but Spiritual things.

From the Scriptures we learned that the Disciples sometimes dare not ask he Lord question and Him being the incarnate word of life (1 John 1:14) He never made any mistakes by the things He was. In fact, we never heard Him say to His followers “sorry this is not what I meant to say or I made a mistake in explaining things” when he was talking to them. The Lord's speech was flawless and His every WORD carried the force of action, Halleluyah!

It is therefore remarkable to see the grace that followed Him. We read that the Lord would go out early in the morning to pray and this we know was in support of His earthly Ministry's work. Unlike many other Christian's, the Lord knew that the supporting power to His ministry was prayer and that alone sustains every Christian in a life of faith and any ministry's life. Anyway, let us continue with our discussion below.

So if the flesh count for nothing then the Christian life is of the Spirit entirely! this will benefit us to grow, to receive Joy, comfort, and to overcome things in this world that seem impossible to overcome, because there are so many temptations around us.

Thus, the Life in the Spirit is a life without sinning and led for no temptations and to overcome this world.

The life in the Spirit is not something that we do, but rather something that we are led to do (Romans 8:14). I met many Christian people who are well versed in the Scriptures, but sadly some of them their life in the Spirit is very weak, they think they have it all but then realise they don’t hear God properly and pretend they do. Praying is one thing but to hear God answering, is another thing.

Here are some examples of God Speaking to His people and God working with them through the same Holy Spirit, for instance,

(Exodus 3:11) God Speak with Him face to face, as one speak to a friend.

The Spirit of God came mightily on Samson (Judges 15:14).

Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them (Act 2:3).

Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind (2 King 2: 11-12).

The Spirit of God was hovering upon the waters (Genesis 1:2).

We see here that God uses his Spirit to do things and to do exploit, God is Spirit and he said we should worship him in truth and Spirit (John 4:24) this mean we need to trust him in the Spirit, and become conscious of our relationship with him daily. Jesus mentioned that without being born again of the water and Spirit we cannot see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-6).

Jesus insisted on being born again to see the Kingdom of God, because there is nothing of the flesh that can make us entering Heaven. This operation is of God and comes from God.

(1Corinthians 2:14) We need the Spirit to Know God perfectly and to understand him.It is impossible to know Jesus without being born again.

Jesus mentioned how the Holy Spirit comes and how He touches people (John 3:8).

Let us be forthright with the truth hers, the earthly position of holding a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies or any Theological studies won’t make them necessary entering Heaven, if He has not truly been born again.

We know that there must be a consistency between the known word and acting upon His word through the Spirit. The Spirit of God enable us to act upon God’s word and with power when our hearts are given to obedience.

And the word must change us by the guidance of His Spirit.

Knowing the words of the bible by heart does not mean it will make people enter Heaven; only when people are born again and baptised by His Spirit when they follow the Lord Jesus Christ in Humility,Love and through faith in Him. His Spirit will make us live a righteous life with peace within us.We cannot live a righteous or Holy Life without his Spirit, this mean we must be willing to obey God (this is our part) then God will do his part through His Spirit to educate us to change us and to prepare us for Eternity.

Generally most people will develop the some qualities as our Lord Jesus Christ like mercy, love, patience, understanding, visions and find themselves praying.

Why? because what is Spirit is Spirit so the Spirit is the one who transform, heal, deliver, baptise us, blesses us, and educate us. He will never force Himself on us but He is really happy when we obey the Lord and turn to him, or when we are led by Him totally.

This is the beginning of the relationship we have with God’s Spirit or with the Lord Jesus Christ's Spirit (John 14:26 - Galatians 4:6).

Now the most important and beautiful message in the whole world is His salvation for the entire human race.

Because what profit is there to gain the whole world (things to enjoy), and lose your own soul? what will it benefit you?..(Matthew 16:26 Mark 8:36) we know that God has sent his Son Jesus Christ to save us and to look after us, but God has not only come to save us, but to live in us and through us for his glory (John 14:23) this is an amazing and mightiest works that He has done, in the whole universe, even Angels marvelled at his Creation (1 Peter 1:12).

Now it is very easy to receive Christ, acknowledge all your mistakes and be sorry for them while repenting of your wrongs doings (1 John 1:10) and be led by His Spirit and might, learning how to please him and how to follow Him through his Spirit daily, in all confidence, so that your mistakes will be washed away in his precious blood and that His Spirit will enable you to overcome temptations of the flesh (1 John 1:7).

The day you begin to talk to Jesus, is the day you begin a new chapter in your life with Him, a new relationship, not only in this generation, but for all eternity.

Do you trust in the Lord? Are you waiting on the Lord’s promises?  If you are willing to turn your life over to God, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

Patience: An Essential Fruit to Inherit God's Promises

Be Patient in All Circumstances

“Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper- it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land” (Psalm 37:7-9 NLT).

In the Lord’s own words through my daughter, Charis, He said: Your father must write an article about patience”. I quote directly to the glory of God. He says we must not conceal His words or message, but we must proclaim it out loud for everyone to hear (Matthew 10:27). I have a mandate and that is to preach the holy gospel, neither am I ashamed to be a follower of Christ Jesus, because it is He in me to accomplish His work of salvation for those who believe. Generally, we know that demanding circumstances can make us both restless and impatient, but the Lord encourages us to be focused and patient. As a family, we ourselves have and we are still being pushed to a level where our faith is the only thing that remains and carries us through the challenges we are facing (2 Corinthians 4:8-12). We equally know that impatience and frustrations never pleases the Lord and God is moved only by genuine faith and a spirit of humility (Genesis 37:3-11). Now through this message, the Lord is pleading with the brethren not to give up but persevere in prayer and allow this time of testing to shape your character and relationship with God.

The precious fruit of patience has been given to slow us down and focus on God’s salvation and deliverance. Quite often we hear the word patience and we sometimes acknowledge our impatience; we lack the application of this virtue. In this article, we will look at some Biblical examples of people who epitomised this great fruit and our struggle as individual witnesses to exercise patience. We are extremely blessed to hear from the Lord and to learn from Him. This does not make us perfect; it rather shows our ultimate weaknesses, which through His grace is being used to caution you. The teachings we deliver through these articles are for your benefit and for the edification of the individual members of the Body of Christ. There is no difference whether Catholic, Methodist, Charismatic, Pentecostal or Baptist (Romans 10:12). In addition, the Bible says: ”Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things”(Philippians 4:8). This is for you; ready yourself to apply and BE! While perfection is not attainable through the flesh (1 Corinthians 13:9), we are commanded to BE HOLY (1 Peter 1:15-16).

Furthermore, as humans we are dependent on God for our existence. We derive life and sustenance from Him (Acts 17:25). In our dependence on God, we are limited in our abilities, so we will need faith and patience to receive what we could not attain through natural means. God in His Wisdom has purposely withheld certain things from us “so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:27 NIV). We are modelled to seek God and discover His truth as the above Scripture declares. The future is concealed from man, but God holds and knows the future of all things for His glory (Isaiah 46:10). We have a past to learn from but a future to hope for. Our hope is Christ, when He will reveal the purpose of our faith in Him (1 Timothy 6:12). Our quest is to attain salvation and this comes through patient endurance.

God created hope and He paired hope with patience. Hope and patience form faith, culminating into endurance, and resulting in salvation (1 Peter 1:9). If we expect something, we hope; and if we hoped for something, then we must apply patience and only then will we receive the promises. We apply patience through waiting, and waiting is never without faith (Galatians 5:5). When the Lord first called us to faith, He added spiritual fruit which is meant to impart His identity in us (Galatians 5:22; Romans 8:10-11). Through the Holy Spirit and His work within us we are recognised as sons and daughters of God (Romans 8:15-16). The invisible qualities or fruit of the Holy Spirit in a believer becomes visible through practice. The whole experience of faith is spiritual and so is the fruit of the Spirit; naturally people identifiy us as followers of Christ through the fruit in display. Therefore, through our union with Christ, this is how we become and get transformed into His likeness (1 Corinthians 6:17; Romans 12:1-2).

The Application of Patience Results in God’s blessings

Throughout the bible, patience is motivated through God’s promises. The people He gave His promises counted on His faithfulness and His inability to lie and change His mind (Hebrews 6:18; Numbers 23:19).

When Abraham was called to leave Haran, the Lord Almighty sent him out with His promises (Genesis 12:1-3). The Lord added no date on when these promises would be fulfilled; Abraham just had to believe in God’s faithfulness. He only had God’s spoken word as ‘proof’ that what was promised would be fulfilled. This prophetic promise was well in the future and Abraham only saw part of it being fulfilled in his life time, and that was the promise and birth of Isaac (see Genesis 21).

This great patriarch of faith did not waver in faith and patience, nor did he give up on God like many of us do when we have to wait. The Bible say Abraham was ‘hoping against hope’ (Romans 4:18). He held onto God’s promises ‘and so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised’ (Hebrews 6:15 NIV). His patience in God’s faithfulness was tested (Genesis 22:1-19).

Also, King David was given a promise of being King over Israel when he was just a youth (1 Samuel 16:1-23). Many times David had to flee for his life, while anointed to reign as King of Israel (2 Samuel 20:1). Through various tests and threats to his life, God granted him rest and fulfilled His promises. Because David was faithful, God extended this promise beyond his life (2 Samuel 7:5-16).

Moreover, Samuel‘s mother was ridiculed, yet by being patient and enduring in prayer she was promised a son through the priest Eli and God granted her request (1 Samuel 1:9-20). Hannah was troubled in her soul so she sought the Lord and not the counsel of man. Additionally, King Hezekiah, being a God-fearing and peaceful man, did not panic when he was threatened by his enemies; he turned to the Lord for help he was promised deliverance, and he received help from the powerful army of Sennacherib, the King of Assyria (2 Chronicles 32:1-23).

In the New Testament, the centurion’s faith was stimulated through a promise and he endured patiently, the Lord granted his request (Matthew 8: 5-13). The Lord raised a ruler’s daughter from dead; he was made to wait and he received his daughter back from death (Matthew 9:18-26). We further read in the Book of Acts how the Lord called the apostle Paul and set out the ministry work He had for him through Ananias, (Acts 9: 15-19). Paul patiently endured all persecutions and threats against his life and fulfilled his calling (2 Timothy 4:7).

Before going into testimonies, the Lord told us that all Christians are called for ministry (1 Peter 5:10; Ephesians 4:1-13). This was confirmed when the believers were persecuted, and they went as individual believers, preaching the gospel and the Jerusalem ‘mother’ church did not take offence to that (Acts 8:4-8). Today, some believers are discouraged to go out as sole witnesses, and I was a victim of this. My beloved brethren, let me encourage you: if you fish for souls and God laid it strongly on your heart, act by faith and GO witness! This is for the Lord and not for the church. My wife and I were called out of our former church to start a witnessing ministry and not a church. As it is, we go out daily as individual witnesses to witness and as a team upon the Lord’s command.

Patience Fulfils God’s Promises

Like all life’s organisms, things and people grow and develop. On the other hand, patience or any other spiritual entity grows. When the Lord rebukes us and refers to the individual fruit of the Holy Spirit He refers to it as a spirit. In our article “Obedience Through Test,” I pointed out how the fruit of the Holy Spirit responds as we yield by faith and obedience to God. I also pointed out in that article how knowledge of the word of God contributes to submission and desire for holy things, and this affects the self and setting us up for obedience. The fruit manifests or becomes visible only as we go through extremely challenging situations (see Isaiah 53). When we are being tested and we are disobedient and impatient, we will fail and never see the Lord’s Good promises fulfilled (1 Samuel 15:7-23). The fruit of the Holy Spirit is given for our holistic spiritual wholeness and spiritual perfection. This is God’s aid to us for service and to BE. I hasten to add more on the Holy Spirit: we must obey Him through the convictions because He will guide us and equip us for service (John 15:5-15).

Testimonies of Impatience with Failure and Patience with Blessings

As a reminder, all testimonies we share are truthful and we share it with a great conviction from the Holy Spirit. This is to testify to you that the Lord still speaks, He still heals and He has never changed. I reiterate: we are humbled by His grace upon our lives in choosing us to share His testimony with you. All glory, honour, praise and thanksgiving to our eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. Amen!

I was blessed with a job by the Lord which I testified about in one of our articles (see Putting On Shoes the Wrong Way). He promised me the job and provided the date – this part was fulfilled. Secondly, He told Charis that I would earn a lot of money, I would be made permanent, and that I would receive a promotion - for this part He did not give a date. These were the Lord’s promises to me. This was the very best news I ever received in my life. Soon after I started working, I told some of my colleagues that I would be permanent. The company we worked for made use of labour brokers that recruit temporary staff. To me, this was a great company to work for; the Lord provides the best! After about a year I became impatient with the Lord and I asked Him a few times when this part of the promise would be fulfilled. He answered me saying: Your father must not worry, I will provide”. This gave me courage for a few more months and impatience set in again, and this time I earned myself a rebuke. In a nutshell, I was lured by another company and thought this promise would be carried over. I was wrong! My impatience cost me all the promises the lord made; He is faithful, but I failed Him. I was forgiven and provided with another task, I learned a lesson which He commanded me to share with you. We must be patient until the end; only then will we receive what God has promised (Matthew 24:13). Therefore, learn from my mistake and inherit life and God’s good promises; they will not fail as we have seen through some Biblical examples.

Another testimony: one sister in our ministry became badly sick, having TB. She lost a lot of weight and coughed uncontrollably. The Lord promised, through Charis, to heal her saying: My daughter Penny must read her Bible everyday starting from Genesis to Revelations and pray three (3) times a day, and I am going to heal My daughter Penny soon”. This precious sister’s situation deteriorated rapidly and she panicked. We encouraged her by re-assuring her about the Lord’s faithfulness and that she must just obey and be patient. She acted by faith and stopped altogether using her TB medication. The Lord Jesus did not tell her to stop taking her medication, nor did we advise her. This was her decision. I am testifying the truth here in Jesus name. This sister obeyed the Lord and He confirmed her faithfulness, Hallelujah! She was healed and still is; she is a faithful member of our witnessing team, glory to God! Her faith, obedience and patience resulted in the Lord’s promised blessings.

In another case, a friend of mine became very sick with a debilitating sickness; we asked the Lord and He promised to heal him. This friend became very weak and he only lived on liquids. We continued to pray for him and encouraged him in the Lord. In His faithfulness, the Lord touched Him and he started eating solid food and gained some weight. As his strength returned, he went back to his former habits of smoking and drinking. He died a few weeks later in his disobedience to the Lord (John 5:14). He despised the Lord’s counsel in his impatience; we must never test the Lord! This friend did receive a warning of impending death from the Lord, but he ignored it.

Finally, I have only shared this testimony with a few close brethren. I did not intend to include it in this article, but the Holy Spirit laid it strongly in my heart to testify about it. I share it to demonstrate to you that faith and patience operate together. If we panic and become frustrated, we fail to receive God’s good and precious promises.

In July last year, the Lord sent us on a week-long witnessing mission in a township about 15 Km from home. One day, after witnessing all day, my wife decided to nurse (breastfeed) our then two-and-a-half-month-old baby before going to bed. My wife was feeling so exhausted and did not remember to allow the baby to break wind (burp) after the feeding.

Before I continue, kindly allow me to mention this: a few days before this incident, I saw myself in a dream praying for someone I knew and rebuking the spirit of death, and the person came back to life. In the dream I saw that it was a friend and grown man, but when the person was raised it was a child. Little did I know it was my own daughter because her face was disguised!

We were awakened around 4 a.m. by a very strange noise coming from the baby: she was not breathing and her body was very cold and stiff. Rigor mortis had already set in when my wife alerted me of that sound. I immediately took the baby in my arms and I rebuked the spirit of death in Jesus name, while my wife joined in by praying in tongues, which I also did. A few minutes later, the baby started coughing violently for a long time, and we noticed that she could not breathe through her nose because it was blocked. I told my wife to fetch Vicks and apply it on her nose, and she started breathing and the cough stopped. I only realised later on that her violent coughing was caused by the breath of life entering her (2 Kings 4:35). Now, if we had panicked and started crying, we would have lost our daughter. We were endowed with patience and we saw God’s great move. I had nothing else in my mind but to just pray and trust God in that situation. Neither did I understand that dream; it only dawned to me a few days later. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

My precious brethren, we have everything to lose when we abandon patience. This precious and important fruit of the Holy Spirit has been ‘built’ into our salvation as a faith ingredient to present us holy and blameless (Ephesians 5:27). We need patience to help us endure and inherit God’s promises; no fruit of the Holy Spirit has been given in vain and it is to complete our salvation. We cannot desire against patience, we need it! Therefore submit and get the right attitude to go through life and enter eternal life – this is God’s call and standard; give it your all and nothing short (Matthew 19:29; Luke 13:24)!

Do you trust in the Lord? Are you waiting on the Lord’s promises? Do you have the fruit of patience, or are you one of those people who falsely believe in not praying for patience? If you are willing to turn your life over to God, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

The Love of Jesus

 Jesus Loves You! This is the most excellent revelation. Please read on!

But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:4-9).

“This is what I tell you to do: Love each other just as I have loved you. No one can have greater love than to give his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I tell you” (John 15:12-14 NLV).

In the verses above, we see God's great love for us in The Lord Jesus Christ, who in turn calls us to love Him by being involved with Him in giving love!

This article will not seek to define love in general; we will look at how the love of Christ Jesus expresses itself towards the human race (John 3:16). Some people become offended saying we must not patronize them when we convey the love of the Lord Jesus Christ to them. However, the Lord had commanded us to love one another, just as He loves us (John 13:34).

Vision of  Love that has Gone Cold

In a vision given earlier last month (September 2014) to Charis, the Lord lowered what looked like an electronic reader board with words passing by saying, "The reason for all the quarrels and conflict between you and [Lucy] (not real name) is because your love for each other has grown cold, for loveless relationships breeds quarrels, fights and divisions". The Lord reminded her of this Scripture: "Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold" (Matthew 24:12 NIV). Perfect Love from God expresses itself through forgiveness and mercy, and in its fullness it shoots forth all the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Quarrels and strife eat away at any good relationship and literally consume peace, dividing people up into factions. Surely, lack of love is the principal cause of all strife in the family, Church and the world as a whole. Let us be on our guard against evil; Satan aims to steal the Word of God from our hearts in order to dispel love.

When I was about 14 years old, I heard for the first time in my life that Jesus loved me. This message was very timely as it was an answer to a short prayer. A few days before I returned home, I prayed to the Lord saying, "Lord, why should I suffer so much and where will I end up in this life"? How precious His timing is! For on that same day, I returned home after I had ran away for about 4 months due to the abuse I suffered. As it is, I only realized later that it was the Lord who sent this sister to meet me and convey His love to me. This is how it happened: I was sent to the shop when a young born-again lady met with me on my way back from the shop. She came up to us (I was accompanied by two other children) and said in Afrikaans, "Seun Jesus is lief vir jou!", meaning: "Son, Jesus loves you!" I felt somewhat shy and embarrassed when she charged towards me to hug me, and I foolishly ran off, which I regretted later.

I tell you those words melted into my heart like sugar dissolving in hot water and sweetening it; those words remained with me. Back then, I did not know who the Lord Jesus was and how real His love was for me; I innocently knew He was God and that He died on the cross for me. Furthermore, while that statement did not lead to my immediate conversion, it left room for Christ later in my life. When faced with loveless situations, I can remember recalling those words and wished I could meet this Jesus. I did not know then that I did not have believing faith and lacked understanding of the Scriptures, otherwise I would have embraced His love.

The love of the Lord Jesus Christ transformed my heart and brought me into a closer relationship with Him and appreciation of what He did (and still does). Brethren, I do not undermined the love of Christ; it is powerful and His going to the cross laying down His life for the human race is REAL and without condition (John 15:13). I and many other servants of God were drawn to Him by His love; this unconditional love is still available and He is calling everyone saying: “Come to Me, all of you who work and have heavy loads. I will give you rest. Follow My teachings and learn from Me. I am gentle and do not have pride. You will have rest for your souls. For My way of carrying a load is easy and My load is not heavy” (Matthew 11:28-30; 22:9 NLV).

Jesus’ Love Rejects No Humans

Our own sins and lustful desires drive us away from the abundant love of the Lord; it is not the Lord who rejects us (James 1:14). As it is, having been a backslider myself, I was driven away from the Lord by worldly desires and through deep feelings of guilt that led me to self-condemnation. I felt unworthy and powerless; the way I looked at myself is the way I believed Christ was looking at me. Being in a prison of my own self-condemnation, the Lord again freed me by saying to me, “He will not break off a fractured reed, and the lamp that flickers he will not extinguish until he will bring the verdict of innocence” (Matthew 12:20 Gods Word Translation). Fellow believers, stop your self-pitying! Accept Christ’s forgiveness for your past mistakes and serve Him without sinning anymore (John 8:11).

In 2008, I witnessed to a young lady who knew about the Lord, but what was keeping her from serving the Lord was self-condemnation. She told me that she committed very wicked sins and she was thinking the Lord would never forgive her. After explaining to her that it is for such people Christ came, she expressed interest and accepted the Lord (Luke 5:32). There is NO HATRED in Christ Jesus towards any human being. He hates sin and calls us to repentance from sin (Matthew 4:17). When the Lord Jesus Christ started His ministry, He did not go out with a sword and hatred; He went out in God’s love (John 5:43; 1 John 4:8). When He was humiliated, insulted and assaulted, He threatened no violence or retribution; instead, His love compelled Him to forgive (1 Peter 2:23; Luke 23:34).

Therefore, the world has experienced no greater love than the ABSOLUTE ABIDING LOVE the Lord Jesus Christ expressed and gave to the human race (Romans 8:35-39). I declare: no Christian should feel ashamed of their faith in Christ Jesus our LORD, for His all-consuming love stands out and has conquered evil (John 16:33). As it is, the Lord Jesus Christ conquered the world of evil through His abiding love; to what or who can we compare Him? NOTHING and NO ONE! His LOVE is simply all-encompassing and inexhaustible forever! If we reject His love, it will still be there to invite us and to comfort us. All God’s creation is founded on His love for Christ Jesus who came to express and give it to us (John 1:3; Colossians 1:17).

Who is Christ’s Love Calling?

“For God so loved the world [YOU and I] that He gave His only Son. Whoever puts his trust in God’s Son will not be lost but will have life that lasts forever. For God did not send His Son into the world to say it is guilty. He sent His Son so the world might be saved from the punishment of sin by Him” (John 3:16-17 NLV). That is correct! The Lord has extended His love to you; accept and experience a changed life of peace with God and people. Without Christ fear, hopelessness and uncertainty will drive you to unhappiness and a destiny of no satisfaction but endless regret.

In conclusion, in the Lord’s countless visits to us during these past four and a half years, He used no power, miracles or words to attract us to Him. His love which we experienced served as our reassurance that we are dealing with a God of love. There was no need for us to separate Him from the Bible; we discerned His love. When Christ first came to minister to us, He said, I love My children and He showed His love to us by giving, teaching, guiding and correcting (Hebrews 12:6).

Follow the love way in Christ Jesus and make your home, workplace and world an attractive dwelling. Therefore, Christ’s love serves neither threats nor does it place any stumbling block to you,so embrace it! What is greater or more real than the love of God? (1 Corinthians 13:1-13) Why reject it when it works for your good? Stop hating what you can’t or will never be able to undo; the flame of Christ’s love has been ignited in this world; and it is alive in all His children! Remember without love for the Lord Jesus, it is impossible to live pleasing to Him.

If you would like to accept Jesus and His abundant unfailing love for you, here is a Prayer of Sincere Repentance to get you started. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Blessed love in Christ Jesus,

God Cares For Your Life

Why We Sharing This Testimony

"But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy,  and spread your protection over them,  that those who love your name may exult in you. 12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield" (Psalm 5:11-12 ESV).

Notice, we have allowed our Brother Patrice to share a testimony with us which we believe is from Lord and we pray that you will be blessed. This testimony is from Sister Mandy Guilloux.

Since this work was directly translated from French into English, I (Brother Glenn) made some minor editing work to allow the flow of the testimony. As we have already acknowledged, our Brother Patrice might not be eloquent in English, but he certainly has a very humble spirit and sharing about God is his passion. Therefore, such serving hearts are pleasing to the Lord and he will never be without peace! As a Ministry, we are allowing him to share with us so that we may learn in humility and be encouraged too, so please do accept his prayerful labour in the Lord.

Praise the Lord, this is another opportunity for us to share God’s love with you yet again. Therefore, this week our message aims to show you the richness of God's care for his children and this includes the saved and unsaved.

As the Scriptures declares, God's sun shines on the wicked and on the wise man, and God has His plan for all of us. This past week I received a phone call from a brother who told me to watch a recent encounter of a precious sister from his Church in the Lord Jesus.

The testimony was in French and I had many confirmations for myself about what the sister was talking about. Her Testimony is very encouraging and well received here and we trust that you will be lifted and strongly encouraged in the Lord. When she delivered her testimony before the congregation she said that the Lord Jesus is coming back soon, as she share things about Heaven and hell.

So please do not neglect this little writing I have taken the time to translate to my best from French into English for all our readers. Knowing that many will be tremendously blessed and will return to God fearing Him and being bold as a Lion. The Sister who shares this testimony is a very great blessing to the Church and we should not neglect to heed her warnings as we humbly need to prepare for the Lord’s return.

I don’t specially speak about those subject but all the insight are very sound and truthful. Being aware also that there is some people who wants to imitate people like her and have seen NO HELL NO HEAVEN and they will have to give account one day before God for issuing false testimonies and lying.

Testimony of Hell. There was a book opened and about to be written for some who would make it and some not. The sister was concerned about all those people who did not make it and all those who would and God said that they have the choice and decide for their own destiny. She also saw one man with a stone bleeding in his hand pleading with God not to let his family come to this place called hell. So God did not answers the sister’s request about the family’s destiny, God said they already know what to do if they don’t want to come here-She hated to see the people suffering in Hell she saw people taking pills given from demons spirit to relieve the people who were already condemned but the demons in hell were lying and the people suffered horrendous death to the liking of these evil beings.She saw huge flammes of fire.She saw women and men with helmets which was piercing their ears.

There was a 25 years old man who was very angry at God in hell and got to say when he was on earth that: “tomorrow I will stop enjoying myself in amusement “This man made an oath and finally lied ,he finished in hell, even until today he reproached God for being there.God said do not put for tomorrow what you can do today!

She saw so many there and she was suffocating, she asked the Lord to take her away from the pit but the Lord did it on purpose for her to witness all she was saw and that it was not God’s choice to see people condemned for eternity.

experiencing Heaven Jesus then took her and she found herself in the light of Heaven and she saw Angels surrounding her watching her.She was in a front of a door and saw wonderful pearls in beautiful colours and two Angels were on each side, she went to a garden and she saw flowers she was asked to watched them, beautiful they were, she saw the Doors with the name of Moses & Abraham on it but she could not access them, another door with the name called “resting place” it was not yet the time to enter-

Then she entered the prayer room and the floor was like clouds and she saw billions of Pots She realised how the Angels are busy and she was describing the Pots with names on it and some beautiful and some dirty but actually they were representing each one of us (his children), these bottles could be purified and some won’t.

Some pots (representing his children) some never pray and some never have time for me (God) but they are my children, God was sad to see this to happen, some people don’t take time and some do not pray at all.One pot was full of light and God said this is my child , he prays always and take time to pray to me, even when he prays and he has no answers from me he continues expecting he will receive from me so he say thank you in advance, God was very pleased with him.(that’s faith!)

God said that every prayers has a great value to Him and that He hear the smallest to the greatest of prayers from your hearts that you don’t utter.. Every thoughts God is aware, He also know when we are in distress or angry He knows it, even when we hate someone. God hear everyone’s prayers at the same time. All Saints prayers are put in the pots, the sister said that when God was pouring some pots, oil would fall on earth, for some people because it was time to receive their blessings and God chose to pour them and fell between clouds, and she saw that it fell on young people in a camping-The people who received their answered prayers thanked God for it! and knelt down in prayer.

The room of victory. Now the sister was led to enter the room of Victory! God records in Heaven all our victories in life.And He is very pleased when someone overcomes. There were Pots with alphabetic letters (by names) God took care of everyone’s need and every seconds of his children were counted and registered. Furthermore, as the Sister saw, some Angels would be sent to earth to encourage and talk to his children to do good things and being inspired. So the Angels would come and visit the Saints on earth to write everything they were doing and to report it to God in Heaven.

During her visit to Heaven, this Sister asked a very disturbing question to God , saying and asking why people on earth would suffer sickness or die, she thought that God missed something, but then as she was asking the question she felt the fear and presence so strong that she realised she was not God and she was very limited in judgment.God finally said to her I know what I must do ( meaning He is God and knows best about everyone’s need)

God answered her that sometime people would die and it was the way for them , and sometimes people who were sick would not find healing but it was not always God’s will for them because He wanted to heal them.She said also that sometimes as she has been revealed in Heaven that God would just touch people on earth and sickness would disappear immediately and cured.

She also said that we do not understand God properly sometimes when we asked things to God and He may not give answers as we may expect. Anyway, God’s thoughts or judgement are different than ours.

She also said that we truly do not know how much He loves us and care for our every need, she also mentioned that God record our every thank you! when we get things on earth it does not matter if it was for something to eat of something we buy, also she said that it touches very much God’s heart when he sees someone who has not much and say thank you! he will not forget this and it pleases him very much-He also likes when we talk to him and spend time with him-

About Tithing in the Church, she saw a safe deposit box He sees also those who gives with a cheerful heart, He sees some people who give much before others but in reality He is not pleased with them because their attitude in giving is not His ways! they gave to show off their gifts.He said He rather liked the person who gave little that he had with all his heart! This was very pleasing to God.He said he did it with all his heart and God said that person actually gave Much!

Seeing the White Garments ’s room She saw all the white Garments in line (tidy)and was told they are nearly finished and ready,she asked why? and God said because Jesus is coming very soon.An Angel was preparing them.There will be just the right amount of Garments that was destined to people- (no more no less) again.. Jesus is coming!

Belt room All the Belt for our Garment are ready (no more no less)This is the belt we will be wearing around our garment.

Good actions or word count She saw Angels going up and down to earth recording the works of the Saints every hours, and the crowns and every jewels that were put on them (Crowns) were prepared according to the works of the saints on the earth. Angels are working non-stop and they go during the day to Heaven to report our every works before Heaven.

"If I (brother Patrice) may say this is a confirmation for me also because God gave me the gift to see the Glory sometimes at home, and the Angels come and go like a flash I am aware of what the sister is talking about.They truly visit us daily without knowing it.”

Filmed of our lives recorded The sister asked what was that room about and she was told that it was were we found billions of film of every one’s lives so that no one can deny or lie about what they have done in their lives before the throne, no one will have any excuse because everything has been recorded. All lives of the human kind was recorded and the Lord Jesus said some people will want to justify and won’t be able and everything will be counted, in other words, Every thought that was not spoken through words also were recorded as the Lord hears and see everything.

She saw herself in the garden and God described to her the sickness, cancer in a body to explain to her that there is nothing that he forget. The sister asked “but people are suffering” , God said for every matter there is a reason for it, saying that God has all answers but also God show her that there were some cases where God touched people’s body and were cured immediately-God said that certain things must happen because it must happen and also God is not always the consequences of sicknesses-And God also reminded her that He was with us and sometime He would touch people and heal them.He said that people think sickness is bigger than their God but they forget “I am the creator” God is certainly saying we must have Faith in Him.Everything happen for a reason- He said again “ I know what I am doing”

Sight of a church on earth from Heaven She described that Jesus was present but people were not lifting up hands because they were ashamed of him. He Saw how the Church has become lazy and are not working within.Some people had only appearance before others and think they were Christians they came but have no fruits. They think coming to Church nice and well dressed is a reflection of being a Christian, they are lying to themselves and they certainly not have the White Garment of Salvation that will get them to Heaven, they have only the good looking of being well dressed before others-This means that Some Christians are lying to themselves, lazy and are not working, they have only a Physical appearance but their spiritual life is declining or dead.

Finally this sister saw millions of Angels protecting the Saints and also were told how much God cared about his Children.. Thank God for the Host of Heaven!

For a shorter version of her testimony, please find it here.

I hope this will strengthen you faith and heart; to cry out to God in fear, and for those who have seen a greater hope they will be very encouraged to do or continue with boldness in God's work, knowing that Jesus is about to come quickly! and He will reward everyone according to his Faith.

If you need more prayer, please start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance, read the Bible every day, continue to faithfully seek the Lord, and take refuge in Him. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.
