God Is Faithful To His Promises

Holding Firmly Onto God’s Promises

Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful(Hebrews 10:23)

Short message from the Lord

Claudia (15 March 2020)

I (Claudia) always ask the Lord in prayer to give me visions and messages, this morning after my morning prayers I heard the Lord said, “I am standing on all My promises”.

Overcoming being weak-willed

Dear brethren, as an online ministry, we will continue to provide messages on this platform to encourage and warn those whose hearts are fixed on the Lord Jesus Christ. As a warning from the Lord in the light of the above scripture, no-one should even attempt to stray from the path of truth. The Word of the Lord warns us that the enemy is operating like an opportunist and he has an evil plan against those who disrupts his campaign of destruction (John 10:10; 1 Peter 5:8). Knowing the overwhelming strength of sin which the enemy exploits through our weakness, (Genesis 4:7) if we blink for a moment and lose focus he’ll be right there to capitalize and launch an attack to bring us down.

Patience

Often, our strength gives way in the midst of constant attacks and we succumb to the pressure of the situation (Luke 22:55-60). Brethren, it would be very easy for us to point a finger to the apostle Peter for denying the Lord and think that we would have handled the situation much better isn’t it? If so, have we ever considered the emotional impact this had on the apostle because he thought his decision to deny the Lord would result in him not losing his life? However, Peter did not fully realise at that moment that the Lord prayed for him not to lose his life and salvation (Luke 22:32).

A brother recently told me that his most constant and pressing attacks always come from within his house. According to Brother Will, (not real name) these frequent attacks are twofold verbal and silent (being ignored and sneered upon) abuse. In his explanation, the brother highlights the tangible presence of an evil hatefulness which leaves him emotionally traumatized that forces him to harbour suicidal thoughts as a way to escape this onslaught.

Now brethren, having been exposed to such an environment both in my adult and childhood life, situations such as this facing our brother Will are serious especially if it involves your parent(s) wife, children or husband. It often leaves us with no shoulder to cry on and when we are faced by this, we have the Lord to turn to in prayer (Proverbs 18:24).

Strength To Endure

Furthermore, while we await the Lord’s coming for our permanent redemption, as an interim relief, the Lord has also provided various ministries and gifts (Romans 12:4-8) of which this ministry is part of. Now as humans, we often run to people for help and sympathy while it is not wrong, not all of us have been endowed to carry the pain of others (Numbers 11:14) and for those of us who have been called to serve God has equipped us with a servant hood spirit dressed up in patience and humility (Numbers 11:16-17).

Finally, we therefore encourage you dear brethren, endure hardships (2 Timothy 2:3), drink from the Lord’s cup of suffering for being a follower of Christ (Matthew 20:22), be obedient and faithful as a servant (Hebrews 3:5), conquer the race (2 Timothy 4:7) to receive the crown of eternal life (James 1:12).

If you are unable to visit a Church to accept the Lord Jesus Christ due the impact of the Covid-19 virus, you can pray this  Prayer of Sincere Repentance, by faith to invite the Lord Jesus Christ into your hear. Once you have done so, 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.


Blessed Hope to our fellow God fearing brethren
