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.

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.

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.

Walking By Faith
"For we walk by Faith and not by sight"(2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV)

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE: Dear Brethren, Please pray for Brother Glenn and his family, their daughter Charis was attacked and viciously attacked this past Saturday (10 June 2017) resulting in some internal injuries that could affect her in the long run. Also, as you know, we recently attended a funeral of my father in law, the Lord has revealed to us his eternal destiny and due to multiple attacks from Satan (1 Thessalonians 2:18), I am unable to report on the visions and the entire testimony. Therefore, this will only be reported in next week Monday, God willing (James 4:15). 

Some time ago, I had a conversation with a brother regarding Abraham and Lot. To start with, Abraham was rich with many cattle sheep goats and Lot had to leave with his animals too but he chose "the green pastures or the well-watered land", while Abraham went to an unknown land but by faith, following as he followed God's instructions wherever he went.

Now, we see in general mostly people are attracted to what they see and look good, they just go for it; it is not necessarily something acquired by faith but a compulsion to get quickly with the eyes of the world it looks good, sounds good and very tempting good to the eyes to enjoy!

Similarly, Abraham was not so doing the same thing, He actually chose to follow the Lord request by FAITH only by Faith He chose to go North South East West wherever he was led He did not see the land but only a promise from God's mouth and decided to walk by faith and he got the best for his people.

How many of us chose the path of Lot but are not prepared to meet faith, rather worldly senses perceptions, which will lead us the wrong way.

It makes sense that faith always pays off it does not matter how long it will take to get us out of problems, situations difficulties, our real trust should be faith in God mighty.

Abraham chose the good part not Lot. Its seems like Lot was attracted by what He saw but later we found out that the part he was near Sodom and Gomorrah. As it is, it things might appear greener on the other 'side' but it may not necessarily be the best choice.

Therefore, let us be wise and trust the Spirit of Might and Faith in us to lead us the right way of the Lord Jesus Christ let us not choose the easy way, but what God ordain in our life, am sure He will make it through and sort your life out as you learn to listen and obey what He has to say.

Perseverance prove our belonging and faith in what we believe , Jesus said when you ask something believe you have received it and it will be done for you.He also mentioned something powerful , that if we have no doubt in our hearts when asking something, we will be able to achieve what he has done to the fig tree that dried up before his Disciples (Matthew 21:18-22; John 15:7).

The life in the Spirit is linked to faith, we must not let the world dictate our lives rather we should maintain our strength and determination in the Lord Jesus, because He said we will move mountains and do greater things than He has done. Of Course this is though his power and might it is his Holy name that makes things come true and achievable.

FINAL WORD : Let us not be tempted by the things of this world but be led by the Holy Ghost in all situations even without seeing clearly where we are going this is called ABRAHAM' S FAITH or FAITH IN GOD, Perseverance plays a major role seeing what we believe coming true. Please read Genesis 13:1-18

If you were blessed by this message, kindly share it. We would also like to encourage those who are not Saved yet to consider repenting and accepting the Lord in their lives by praying this  Prayer of Sincere Repentance. For any questions or comments on this article or our ministry, please contact us.

Let us not have the eyes of the flesh but instead the eyes of the Spirit and Faith.

Be blessed

Faith And Endurance To Reach God's Country

Our Brother Glenn is running some errands, thus we are pleased to share again a message with you which was prayerfully prepared by our Brother Patrice from the beautiful Country of France. Let us learn from the Lord through his message this week.

“If they had been thinking about the country they had left, they could have gone back. But they were waiting for a better country—a heavenly country. So God is not ashamed to be called their God, because he has prepared a city for them“ (Hebrew 11:15 NIV).

-Just before I begin read Hebrew 11:11-39 and then read this article as follow, below I have put in red some very significant words from the Lord in our walk with Him.

The Title concerns our Heavenly home, as we read the chapters we have a clue of how our Father in Heaven wants us to live. We definitely know that the flesh cannot be overcome as an ordinary man, but we need Faith or an extraordinary faith to do might works.Without the Help of the Holy Ghost we could never see Heaven, because it is God’s goodness that works within us, for each one of us.

It is absolutely important that we base our christian life on Faith like all our Fathers in the faith as Paul described it in Hebrew Chapters 11 and 12, they were a great example to us, and triumphed in Faith and were helped to overcome their situations-
Everyone of us are going through something and everyone of us should keep our focus on the Light of Christ and Heaven.Paul mentioned it many times , “set your eyes on things above not on the earth” (Colossians 3:2 NIV).

Strengthening Our Relationship With The Lord

So definitely all we need to develop is a relationship with our God like Elijah Elisha Moses David and even more like our Lord Jesus Christ imitating them in faith and actions-

Our relationship can be so strong and yet sometimes so weak because of our failures our shorts coming and sin.

Until the day we shall depart from earth, we will need to continue to fight the good fight, as Jesus said.

The good fight is our own flesh and for that we need to pass some time in the word and eat the word (speaking it and memorising it) digesting it (understand it )and practicing it in love toward others.

There no greater than love, and love overcome people who are nagging others or put their fingers at others finding their fault and using their faults to destroy them.

The practical Christian life is very important it will help us to overcome also our limitations or sins, looking after someone make us to sacrifice our own selfish ways and develop spiritual virtues and overcoming.

What are the great things or pleasures to find the problem in others ’ life ? while us are so miserable sometimes , this is called a lack of understanding and misjudgment-

Rather I would prefer imitating God than human beings, because our God is full of compassion, mercy, and great Love-

Why then wouldn’t we want to be the same..the reason is that us people need to grow, and should become like our Lord Jesus Christ or God Himself, we will then never be limited and find ourselves full of love and strengthen by Him towards other.

The Holy Spirit is the One who help us, He encourages us to pray for our enemies, to love them, He also show us things to come and reminds all that Jesus has said concerning him.

What a wonderful Lord we serve, let’s believe for deliverance in our daily lives with perseverance to receive breakthroughs as we are willing to follow him whatever situation we find ourselves in-

This earth is only a motion, we are here today but tomorrow? we don’t know.

So let us live for the day enjoying every moment that God gives us and taking advantage to thank him and be part of the reaching out toward people so they may have the opportunity to receive salvation for their souls and a Heavenly Home waiting for them as they decide to put all their effort and Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ-

Never look back and keep focus on things above, Paul said in his letter,  In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood (Hebrew 12:4)

Think how our Hight Priest Jesus is faithful and here asking us to persevere in Holiness thou it is not an easy task.
Be strong and very courageous have a personal intimacy with Jesus and be truthful to him-

Edifying Scriptural References

Hebrew 11:1

11:1 Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it. 2 Faith is the reason we remember great people who lived in the past.

Hebrew 12:1-6

God Is like a Father

You are struggling against sin, but your struggles have not yet caused you to be killed. You have forgotten the encouraging words that call you his children:

“My child, don’t think the Lord’s discipline is worth nothing,

and don’t stop trying when he corrects you.

The Lord disciplines those he loves,

and he punishes everyone he accepts as his child.”
Proverbs 3:11–12

Be Careful How You Live

.. But you have come to Mount Zion,
to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands of angels gathered together with joy.

You have come to the meeting of God’s firstborn
children whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all people, and to the spirits of good people who have been made perfect.  You have come to Jesus, the One who brought the new agreement from God to his people, and you have come to the sprinkled blood[e] that has a better message than the blood of Abel. So be careful and do not refuse to listen when God speaks. Others refused to listen to him when he warned them on earth, and they did not escape. So it will be worse for us if we refuse to listen to God who warns us from heaven.  When he spoke before, his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once again I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once again” clearly show us that everything that was made—things that can be shaken—will be destroyed. Only the things that cannot be shaken will remain.
So let us be thankful, because we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. We should worship God in a way that pleases him with respect and fear,  because our God is like a fire that burns things up.

Do you fear God? If so, make your commitment today to Christ the Lord. Do you want to give your works an eternal meaning? To begin a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, please repent and start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

Good Works Does Not Equal Salvation

Gossip Spreads Doubt And Divisions

Please read (3 John 5-10)

“For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift” (Ephesians 2:8 HCSB).

Vision: Please find it here

We have also inserted links onto our links section to our Brother Patrice's blog and to his Praise and Worship music.

Conviction Of The Holy Spirit Opens Our Spiritual Eyes

Back to our message, it can be said that each one of us had a past life involving some poor decisions that we had taken before we accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour. As we know, no one is born saved, if we were there would be no need for grace. Therefore, the work of the Holy Spirit directly points us to the grace of our Heavenly Father (Zechariah 4:6). What I mean is this, grace manifest through the Holy Spirit who convicts us of sin (John 16:8) which in turn leads us towards a Saviour to obtain salvation (2 Corinthians 7:10).

Without boring you with my testimony which I repeatedly shared in this space. Anyway, before I initially committed my life to Christ back in 1990, I had no regard for Church, but I knew if I needed to know more about the Lord that is the place I would have to go. However, like I shared elsewhere, my life with the Lord began when I started reading the bible for myself, which led me to the conviction of my sins and faith in the Lord. During my worldly ways, I sought the company of my friends to engage in our usual habits of drinking, partying and engaging in various sins, but after all my activities are done, I would often ask myself, ‘how long will I continue like this, and where will all this end?

Let’s be honest, we need to show off something or have something to gain relevance, acceptance, and influence amongst our friends and if we don’t ridicule and abuse will follow. Like all youths, I worked hard to maintain my ‘status’ amongst my friends to remain relevant and influential, but there comes a time when one has to give up that life of competition to impress friends as everybody vies for the top spot. As we know, this involves slandering, backbiting, betraying and dominating others and the evil this brings is a grudge, hatred, and feelings of inferiority. Now, how this relates to our message is that how would I have been able to see my sins and the operation of God’s grace to save me from all that? (Ephesians 2:3-5). Remember, it is not about me here; it is just good to explain from my position as the Apostle Paul so convincingly did (Romans 7:9). Rather, I was plagued by vices other than what you had been, and that brought us both to the Lord, and we received grace unto salvation.

Can Our Good Works Save Us?

We are living in a world where a person is judged by the work we do, success in attracting an audience and good looks which are the normal human measure, the facade. In contrast, the issue of a person’s heart is measured by intentions and motives and evil or good is seen therein. Motives are often well-hidden by words to coat our conscious and hide our motivations. Therefore, the part God is interested in is the condition of our hearts when we do or say something (1 Samuel 16:7; Jeremiah 17:10) the results of what we did. Let me be honest here, we have had an experience where we were helped in our ministry by some people which we greatly appreciated, but after helping the brethren would undo the good they did by complaining and with some painful words to belittle and humiliate. Scripturally, such a person does not perform from love but regret and grudgingly. The Bible says we must not give or help others grudgingly (2 Corinthians 9:7) and the Lord’s grace is without repentance (Romans 11:29). In such instances of complaining, the Lord says keep your gifts and get your heart and life right with the Lord (Colossians 3:23), obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22). Having said this, do we think that our works will bring us closer to God while we neglect the condition of our hearts which He weighs and sees (Proverbs 16:2; Job 34:21-22). Briefly, we had a member in our ministry whom the Lord commanded to do something for Him. At first, the person obeyed, however, later on, the member complaint bitterly and disobeyed the Lord’s command. And this led the Lord to say, “My daughter (name withheld) is not just doing this for you but My sake,” and this led the Lord to say, “My daughter (name withheld) must no longer do the task I gave her.” Therefore, judging from this, the person did this under compulsion, stressfully and void of peace and joy. Brethren, as I conclude, does our works witness peace and relieve in others with joy or regret with bad memories? Do we befriend people or fellowship with them to genuinely help to build and encourage them (Hebrews 10:24) or simply to control or dominate? Adding our works to what or who motivated us, are others able to see us or the love of Christ through our labor? (Colossians 3:23).

As for the religious and those who are content just to attend Church and the unbelievers, do you think your good works and charitable works will earn you a ticket to Heaven and a seat of honor on the throne of the Lord Jesus? (Revelations 3:21). The answer is NO! Salvation is through Christ alone (Acts 4:12) and our good works find meaning in and through Him (Ephesians 2:10) and He should be the motivation of our efforts.

Would you like to be a light in this dark world and experience true peace and joy? Do you want to give your works an eternal meaning? To begin a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, please repent and start by praying this Prayer of Sincere Repentance.

Blessed Regards and Peace in Christ.

Teachings from the Lord Regarding a Christian's Social Responsibilities

Note: Dear brethren, we are re-publishing this message just to remind you of your obligations as a Christian. Let us be ready to serve at all times and endure. The Lord recently revealed to me that many Christians will face betrayal and some of us will feel all alone. Additionally, the Lord said even when we see people abandoning the faith and break faith with us, we must endure.

This week, we will share some short but powerful messages from the Lord regarding a Christian’s duty in our social interactions with others. We may have mentioned some points elsewhere on this website, but it is important that we remind you on what pleases the Lord. In Jesus name, please take these teachings from the Lord very seriously! I know truly humble and sincere Christians are always acting on conviction to God’s messages since they have the Holy Spirit, and such Christians also shares forth the purity of the truth in their hearts.

Secret Sins

First, it is important to remember that the Lord sees everything we do, and He knows the very secrets of the hearts (Psalm 44:21; 1 Chronicles 28:9; Jeremiah 17:10). It is important to be a light to the world, and we should not engage in hypocrisy or pretense. Recently, the Lord gave me a message that I should warn Christians about secret sins. He said, referring to a young man we know, “My son John (not real name) is hiding sins and he is doing some unholy things. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither is anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad” (Luke 8:17).

We therefore beseech you in love, my brethren, to refrain from secret sins. The Lord reminds us that sin hinders our relationship with Him; He does not accept our prayers when we offer them with sin in our hearts (John 9:31; 1 Peter 3:7). Let us be sober and heartily follow the Lord, embracing the Scriptures in complete obedience, and not following the lusts of our hearts (Numbers 15:39).


In a short vision and message to Jaydeen yesterday morning (November 22, 2015), the Lord transported her in the Spirit to some unknown location elsewhere in this world. The Presence of the Lord illuminated that entire area for her to see clearly and as far as she could see, a group of mostly white people were busy erecting white tents for homeless refugees. This is what the tent makers answered when she asked regarding the setup of all these tents (that it was for homeless refugees). She then suddenly saw a black man approaching the tent makers and he asked if he could offer them a hand. They refused and the Lord who knew their hearts spoke and said “People who are racist do not build in love and their work is being rejected”. Additionally, having been born and raised here in South Africa, a very unequal society in terms of social classes largely built on ethnicity (as is the case with some other countries around the world), we experience this kind behavior almost daily. This is even evident among people of the same race, tribe or ethnicity. If we discriminate against others based on the color or tone of their skin, or their physical appearance, we are guilty of great evil and this is despising God and the work of His hands (Galatians 3:28; Psalm 24:1; Genesis 1:26). For love has no divided interest, it is surely not divisive but inclusive in nature (1 Corinthians 13:6-7).

People’s Physical Appearance

Two days ago, on the morning of November 21, 2015, the Lord showed Charis a vision of a young man who belongs to a certain social grouping in South Africa. A young lady met him and asked him: “Why do you look so different from the [social] class of people you are supposed to belong to, and why are your lips like that?” The young man responded, “I did not create myself! Ask God; He made me like this”. Charis then heard the Lord speak and say, “It is wrong to ask people why they look the way they are! I created them so, and I am very pleased with them”. It is indeed wicked and insulting to God to criticize the physical appearance of others (Jeremiah 13:23a); their unique features are pleasing to the Lord. This variety displays the glory of God’s manifold and unmatched wisdom in creation (1 Corinthians 15:38-41; Genesis 1:26).

My encouragement to you, whether you are beautiful or not so handsome according to other people’s judgments and the world’s standards is this: don’t feel despondent, intimidated or inferior! Your unique looks should give you a humble attitude and a grateful heart for the precious gift of life. In the Word of God, this is what we are told about our Lord Jesus Christ, who now has unmatched beauty and glory in Heaven: “… He grew up before Him like a young plant and like a root out of dry ground. He didn't have an impressive form or majesty that we should look at Him, no appearance that we should desire Him” (Isaiah 53:2 HCSB). With this in mind, I am not saying the Lord was unattractive, but physical beauty was not a feature that He used to draw people to Himself. As we see and know today, the mainline media uses the ‘good looks’ or appearance of others in their marketing campaigns in order to lure us to their products, while subtly making a mockery of how we look. As it is, it’s not surprising that many people fall for these satanic deceptions and suffer so much personal self-rejection and end up following these worldly practices in order to feel accepted. This is non-sense! God has accepted you, and that is why He gifted you with life! Our Lord Jesus was incomparable in wisdom, knowledge, power, love and humility I can say, such beauty attracted me and countless others and this beauty is unfading!

Welcoming People Into Your House

This message is all about having the right attitude to welcome people into our homes and country when hardships forced them away (Leviticus 19:33-34). As an encouragement to Christians who will be host and welcome people into their land or homes, we must remember that our testimony about Christ is powerful and as we share Him and display the fruits of His love, we invite people to Him (2 Corinthians 10:4-5; 1 Peter 3:15-16). Some few days ago, on the morning of November 21, 2015, the Lord showed Jaydeen, one of my daughters, a vision of a man who was keen to receive his cousin and his family into his house for the Christmas holidays. While he heartily looked forward to receiving them, his heart was weighed down with sadness and this led him to exclaim, “my wife is very nasty with others!”

The Lord is revealing the heart of this man. We know the man’s wife, and the Lord revealed to us that this woman has an unwelcoming heart. She does not have a love for people outside her immediate family, and she is not willing to share her resources with others. This lady fails to realise what the Bible says: “Don't neglect to show hospitality, for by doing this some have welcomed angels as guests without knowing it” (Genesis 18:1-33; Hebrews 13:2 HCSB). When we practice hospitality, we will never fail to receive a blessing from God (Matthew 10:40-42; 25:40). Surely, by refusing to accept people whom God sent to them, a selfish and unkind person rejects God’s blessings. This is how we know if people or even visitors from God are sent by Him, they always come unexpectedly, and when we are discerning, courteous and caring we will know to care for them and send them away in love and peace.

Caring for Orphans and Abandoned Children

On November 13, 2015, I (Brother Glenn) was shown a vision by the Lord. In this vision I saw myself walking with a boy who was about ten years old, and I had my right hand over his right shoulder. I also saw his father and mother walking in front of us, but they seemed to show very little interest in the boy and me. In the vision, I saw the boy’s father going to a shop and buying cigarettes. He then lit one and started smoking it. The Lord revealed to me that the boy’s father neither dedicates time for his children nor cares about their upbringing in the will of God; all he cares about is the pleasures of his sinful habits. Similarly, the Lord made me understand that the desire of the boy’s mother was to protect her interest by spending more time with the boy’s father instead of her children. In the Lord’s eyes these parents did not care about their children in a godly family. I was further made to understand that God is calling upon men or fathers (as in my presence in the vision) to act as fathers to children who are orphaned or abandoned by their parents (Isaiah 1:17; James 1:7).

Brethren, this is a very serious teaching! In our experience, the Lord has given me children of my own, but he has also added children to my family so that I can guide them in God’s love after their fathers walked out on them. In my observation, and especially seeing this from my own family background, the sad story is that these children grow up with no love for others and only hateful feelings. We see the reality of this by the many heinous crimes occurring in our society. As soldiers of light, let us therefore reach out to orphaned and abandoned children. Even if you do not have children of your own, become a father by adopting children even away from their broken homes, just like I do, and become part of the joy of changing a life.

Adults Setting Bad Examples

This past Friday morning, on November 20, 2015, the Lord showed me a girl who was about thirteen years old. She was puffing away at a cigarette, and this led me to rebuke her. As she left the room we were in, I followed her and she handed the cigarette to an elderly woman who could have been her granny. When I saw the older woman taking the cigarette from her, I proceeded to rebuke her gently and firmly for setting a bad example for children. She did not receive my rebuke and angrily walked away. The message the Lord is giving us in this vision is that some elders and adults are setting very poor examples for their children. They basically lead children in wrongdoing and even approving of the wicked things they do. The Lord said that He will severely punish irresponsible adults who fail and mislead children without correcting them (Titus 2:2-5). Also, in this vision, the Lord is encouraging us as Christians not be silent when we observe such behavior. We should address this ill adjustments and sins in our society, with the aim of saving souls and changing lives.

Blessed Grace in obedient submission to Christ,

But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall[a] of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity (Acts 8:20-23 ESV).”

As we have already warned in our prosperity teacher's article, what these men are doing is rather very displeasing to the Lord, and our Brother Patrice, having experienced this himself would just like to give a confirmation. In order to maintain originality, we have not tried to influence his writing style. These men of God are in the ministry of selling of anointing oil for commercial purposes, which is a ministry type that is totally unbiblical. This matter greatly disturbed him and after prayer, he subsequently shared it with us first and he would like to share it with you as well. Brother Patrice is no stranger to us as a family and to this ministry. In fact, the Lord has given Him a few message saying that He is a humble servant and knowing him and having worked with our brother, he serves the body of believers to encourage and reaching the lost for the Lord. Being passionate for the Lord, our brother roams the streets of France as a lone street evangelist with a passion to save the lost.


Men of God ! REPENT! and it shall be well with you- by brother PatriceI have been pondering for sometime now to write this message and being inspired by the Holy Spirit. Many people shall watch out and be wise as the Lord grows us, while there are shepherds who are thinking that the sheep of the Lord belongs to them! (1 Peter 5:3).

Let me explain my view, we certainly know how the Church has evolved since the 1st century, which is now in a bad condition (Revelation 3:17).

Who is responsible for the mess? Yes the ministers are responsible for the good and bad work in the body and the Lord will either reject or appraise our work (1 Corinthians 3:13-15).

Our first priority is not us or the Shepherd (Pastors), but Christ Jesus who is able to renew transform saves deliver, all his gifts belong to Him, The Holy Ghost and to The Father, there is nothing that does not belong to Him-

The wisdom of God and his great great love is ..GREAT INDEED! how much love the Father has and his Son.

We should never put the priority on the Men of God but Jesus-

Men of God are inspired by God but can never replace God Mighty the Eternal God or the Son.They certainly need to be honoured as the bible say we shall honour all men.

When the Gifts takes over in popularity for their own sake(men of God) then there is a danger for the sheep, they don't really can discern well and must open their eyes and accept the scripture coming their ways too! It is not because The Pastors (or any minister’s title )is so anointed or working miracles that they will necessary enter Heaven. NOTICE I truly still love the ministers but the final judgement is God, not us!May God have mercy !

Humility and not greed shall be emphasized always, being a man of God for the sheep should be this way, and to fear God , never expect to be totally right, even many are doing charity, good works, but yet are deceiving themselves the gifts of God are free and not to be bought.

Think for a moment Peter told the man that wanted to buy the gift of the Holy Spirit!

said to him :


In our days the anointing of God is sold for money and miracles-(and i know this fact by my own experience).

There shall be no other choice and if we love Him we should hold on to him every second of each day and follow him. Following the Lord Jesus might not be easy but He is Faithful and He can make it possible by His grace.

“I can Just imagine on that day when all the rewards are given to his faithful servants !

I can imagine the reckoning day when the Lord Jesus is proud of his servants and no man can take the glory upon any servants (neither our Pastors or servant of God, they will try here on earth and being proud) but imagine this scene , on that Day with the servants that the Lord Jesus Christ is pleased with ,the glory that is upon their heads will return to the Father! not your Pastor here on earth, Jesus will reward his servants accordingly, but all the Glory of the Father will return to Him knowing that through Jesus His Son HE IS GLORIFIED-Amen.

As it is, because all belong to Christ, I can imagine the day it happen seeing The Father receiving his glory back for the Good work of his SON THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!

Therefore, no one can take your glory(in you ministry) belonging to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ, only Him will receive it and shall return to the Father GOD the Eternal Father!AMEN AND AMEN, A BIG HALLELUJAH!

As a direct appeal, I say, "Men of God ! DON'T SELL THE ANOINTING OIL REPENT! and it shall be well with you.

Let us remember when Paul laid his hands on Timothy he never asked him for Money to receive the power or the Gifts. Instead, Paul was trusting his young and faithful brother Timothy. Why then are you selling the anointing oil, which supposedly comes with a 'gift' from God. Thus, God's gifts are free (Matthew 10:8).

20 But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!  You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall[a] of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity" (Acts 8:20-23 ESV) 

If you say, "See, we did not know this," Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work? (Proverbs 24:12 NAS).” I said to myself, "God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man," for a time for every matter and for every deed is there (Ecclesiastes 3:17 NAS).

"Great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds ((Jeremiah 32:19 NAS).

Being a Person after God’s Own Heart

How You Can Live Pleasing to God
‘'… I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do’' (Acts 13:22 NIV).
We are sharing this message again! Now, the Lord is aware that some Christians are craving sin and He recently revealed to us that many have a disregard for His Word as some Christians are openly hating and not willing to forgive. Forgiving others is central to a Christian's salvation (Matthew 6:15; 1 John 4:20) and the Lord said that if we forgive, our light shines on the offending brother or sister for his or her deliverance and salvation. Why are we forsaking our Christian duties and obligations of building up others and caring for the poor? Let our hope of salvation continue to inspire and liberate those who are faithless and hopeless.

 This message is an encouragement to Christians to pursue maturity in their faith, and this will help them acquire the necessary spiritual weapons to overcome sin, Satan and problems which often results in so much complaining. Beloveds, it is a tall task for any man to live to please our Heavenly Father. However, God chose and called David and after anointing him, David succeeded King Saul. Despite his mistakes, King David lived pleasing before the Father, and his reward was a richly decorated dynasty (2 Samuel 7:12-13; Matthew 1:1). Briefly, now since people cannot live forever and God’s promise to David was of eternal value, He had to extend it to our Lord Jesus Christ to fulfil the honor of God’s blessing to King David. When we are driven by a love for God, nothing else will matter. What I mean is that we will not seek attention from a man for their approval. Instead, there would be a constant hunger and desire for God (Psalm 73:25).
Why did David become a Man after God’s own Heart?
Let us examine the answer to this question from the Scriptures. To qualify to be a man after God’s own heart, we have to love God for being God and not just for what He can do for us (Matthew 22:37). Below we consider just how King David pleased God and undoubtedly,
  • King David loved God, and his God-consciousness was an expression of his devotion to God (Psalm 18:1).
  • By expressing his love to God, he regularly prayed to God and worshipped Him (Psalm 5:2-3; 55:17; 103:1; 1 Chronicles 29:10-13).
  • He trusted and had faith in God (Psalm 25:1; 31:14).
  • His devotion was from the heart (Psalm 9:1; 86:12).
  • David feared God, and he humbled himself before Him (1 Chronicles 13:12; 119:63; 2 Samuel 12:13).
  • He delighted in the will or ways of God (Psalm 18:21-22, 119:174).
  • God’s Word was his light and guidance through lives journey (Psalm 119:97-105;).
  • He obeyed the Word of the Lord (Psalm 119:67; 71).
Therefore, from the above Scriptural considerations, we find this basic devotional ‘package’ matchless, and this should be the envy of many Christians.
Why some Christians are always Unhappy, Afflicted and Complaining?
From our experiences with the Lord, He told us that He has a simple yardstick to measure the love of Christians for Him, and this has always evident for all to see. Do you want to know what that is? Well, read on!
As a ministry, we are often requested to deal with questions and concerns from many Christians who seek answers from the Lord. With the Lord’s help and guidance, some brethren received deliverance, help and answers to their prayers. Below, we will attempt to explain scripturally why some brethren fail to receive answers to prayer. The Lord has repeatedly pointed out to us that many Christians who fails to receive an answer to their prayers are living in sin. He said they are wilfully disobedient that is why their prayers are not answered (Joshua 7:10-13).  
After ministering to people, we would normally pray for them. On some occasions, the Lord would answer some of our prayers on behalf of the people on the strength of our faith. The moment people perceives God answered prayer, they grow dependent on the minister and undermines their faith. In other words, their faith and prayer live switches from live to dormancy. However, this the Lord explained to me, to avoid people becoming too dependent on ministers for answers to their prayers, He would not always answer, because ministers are supposed to empower people to lean on the Lord (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Why? In the first place, the Lord does not encourage people to make man their dependence (Jeremiah 17:5; Psalm 118:8-9; Isaiah 31:1). Secondly, some people like shortcuts, they become lazy to pray for themselves to exercise their faith. In a further message, the Lord explained to me that when some people depends on the prayers of others, they surrender their faith to the efforts of others (Exodus 32:1). In other words, people should use their faith and their God-given privilege of approaching the throne of grace themselves (Hebrews 4:16) and this is a call to all Christians and not just to a few. Also, I would like to add; the Bible encourage us to pray for one another (James 5:16; Ephesians 6:18). Brethren, especially those of us who ministers the gospel to others, it is sinful to make others dependent on our prayers with the result that people are no longer praying for themselves and exercising their faith to receive growth, grace, and help from God. We are Scripturally mandated to encourage and teach others to be faith independent regarding our personal obedience and devotion to God (Titus 2:6-15).
As a direct spiritual benefit, the Word of God gives us freedom from the oppressive wishes of others (Ephesians 4:14). This freedom would allow us to hear God for ourselves and follow His lead (John 10:27). Therefore, the aim of helping others is not to run the race for them, but to simply aid them in their walk with God (Ephesians 4:12). As people mature and learn to trust the Lord for themselves, they would develop the joy of the Lord, the employment of God’s Armour (Ephesians 6:10-18) and the character to avoid complaining. Bless you for reading on! And to answer our question on the Lord’s yardstick, He said that people’s faithfulness and consistency is evidence of their love for Him, and this is noticed by all (Daniel 6:10-11). We may also recall Hannah's consistent prayers, year after year she pleaded with God for a child after she realized that her husband could not change her situation but only God, her prayer was heard and answered (1 Samuel 1:6-7; 19-20).
In conclusion, by the Lord’s messages to us, He has always been pleased when Christians expressed obedience and faithfulness to Him. I can recall a message the Lord gave Charis regarding a brother whom the Lord sharply rebuked. The humility the brother expressed by accepting the Lord’s rebuke greatly pleased Him. Can you say the Lord is pleased with your life? And are you a person considered by God to be a man after His own heart? By considering your stand with God right now, would you be able to measure up to the basic devotional package mentioned above? If not, you have work to do and remember your love for God will ensure that your multiple sins are covered in Jesus name. He who loves more has been forgiven more (1 Peter 4:8; Luke 7:47).

Grace to you in Christ,
