Forgive As An Expression Of Love

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matthew 6:14-15 NIV).

Given to the above scripture, God demands us to completely forgive without repeating every time the nature of the offence to the person. Some time ago a brother shared with us what a brother in the Lord wrote to him.  He wrote, ‘I have forgiven you for the offence you committed against me’ while he was repeating the offence the brother committed against him and at the same time he was piling more offences onto the record. After reading the entire lamentation, I felt the spirit of unforgiveness and bitterness from the content of that letter. Now, not only did that brother not forgive, he showed his unforgiveness through his disengagement with the other brother. Additionally, this brother’s unforgiveness was further expressed through his repeating to others the offence, now isn’t that a grand unforgiving spirit?

Scripturally, God is Love or Love is God. Let us consider what we read in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ‘’Love is patient, love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes, and always perseveres”.

Repeating The Offence To Others Equals Unforgiveness

Have you ever forgiven someone and when they commit another offence to you; you simply go back to the past reminding the person what he or she did some time ago, are we able to really say I forgave you in the first instance? (Luke 17:4). NO! Needless to say, many Christians are struggling to forgive but they sing very loud and preach well-prepared messages when they see the brother or sister who offended them they are being clothed with the spirit of Haman-hatred but he wanted an audience with the King (Esther 5:13). In contrast, how would a Christian be given an audience with King Jesus when they hate and harbour unforgiveness towards their brother whom they can see?

There is a huge difference between brushing something aside and really forgiving someone. With me (Charis), God really deals with me when I am struggling to forgive someone. I will literally dream about the person several times a week (imagine how uncomfortable that is) until I surrender to God and really allow God to take over and ‘flush’ me clean with His Holy Spirit. I literally give Him that load and once the Lord took the load (burden) I enjoy an unexplainable feeling of deep peace, joy and comfort.  

Going back to the previous two articles we shared with you: ‘’Including God’’ and ‘’Beauty in Christ’’ we emphasised that we need to include God in our journey of forgiving others and let that add to our beauty in Christ, not mention all the blessings we stand to inherit!

 Finally, we never ‘’have’’ to forgive just because we are ‘’Christians’’. We forgive because of who we are in Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

 Forgiveness leads to Love and we know who is Love, God Almighty! Now, remain blessed and encouraged, brothers and sisters.

 With the love of Christ

New World Order In The Making

 Behind The Scenes Formation Of World Order

“Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces (Daniel 7:23).

A vision of a flood by Brother Glenn (15 March 2023)

I received a Vision from the Lord during the early hours of the above date. I saw a devastating flood coming to South Africa. I saw roads being flooded, cars completely submerged, and the waters reaching almost two-meter heights. End!

In today's article, Brother Glenn (Who holds a law degree and studied International Law) has carefully looked at the formation of the New World Order from a legal perspective and how the current legal systems which govern trade treaties prevent the setting up of the New World Order. It is thus our belief that either a war or a complete financial collapse will make way for the introduction of the authoritarian New World Order according to the Bible.

Challenging The Entrenched Legal System(s)

Brethren, I have been wanting to write this article for a long time but due to other commitments and while waiting for an answer to prayer regarding this matter I was delayed. However, I am confident that this article will shed more light on this important new world order. As the Lord permits, we will add to this article.

Also, we need to emphasize that this article will focus only on the political and legal aspects of this so-called new world order. In addition, this article assumes that the reader will do self-research on the legal and political systems of the countries (Notably, Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Iran) that will form part of the new world order. I must mention that those are not the only countries that will embrace the New World Order, the Lord revealed to me that there will be some African Countries and some South American Countries. 

Russian/Ukraine War Changing Point

Let me emphasize a point here, the Russian/Ukraine war has brought about a complete paradigm shift and this serves as a catalyst and break-away from the Western-dominated worldview. I can safely predict that the nations which are the driving forces behind the formation of the coming New World Order have no respect for human lives and they will brutally clamp down on those who do not obey them (Revelation 13:15-17). The World has entered a realm of no return the Lord says and this will lead to the fulfillment of His Word.

Socialists Systems Defies Roman Statutes

Basically, the New World Order is nothing but the changing of legal rules within a new political dispensation. Historically, most of the Western World and some African countries (especially previous colonies) have incorporated Roman common law into their legal systems. It must also be mentioned that the International Criminal Court (ICC) derives some of its rules of procedures from Roman Law and this has shaped most of the treaties between various nations. 

In addition, international Law found its inspiration in Roman law. Having said this, we will not be going into the technicalities of legal systems, you may read it elsewhere. Our aim here was just to explain how our current governmental systems around the world have developed through the historical influences of Roman and English Law.

Now, having briefly explained the above, we may safely say that most governments of the world must comply with the norms of International law as reflected in the United Nations Articles, and non-compliance simply means sanctions and poverty. Furthermore, we will not be going into the historical development of the United Nations and its successes in influencing nations across the world. We will however mention that the culture of freedom and human rights is the order we are currently enjoying. Therefore, the legal system of a body or dominant country sets the rules for the type of government(s). 

Brethren, you may recall that I mentioned in our 'Mark of the Beast II' article that there are some nations that undermine the Authority of the United Nations (UN) especially some of those nations which hold permanent seats. As we know, permanent members of the UN have the power to veto (or render a resolution non-binding) decisions they don't agree with. This we have seen recently leads to the killing of innocent people and the violation of their human rights and dignity. While the formation of the United Nations was to prevent human suffering and wars, one can clearly see that this body is failing to prevent wars because of the unequal status of some Countries. It is a fact that permanent members of the UN Security Council wield more power over those who have no veto powers and this is oppressive! 

I have it from the Lord's authority that Russia, some African nations, Arab and some Asian countries are working behind the scenes to change the rules and usher in the New World Order as they see the current system as only benefiting the West. As it is, the Lord showed me that most of these nations are unaware that they are being lured into a trap of lucrative trade deals, and in the end, they will give up their sovereignty (Revelations 17:12-13). 

In conclusion, the aim of this article was to simplify how influential and resourceful world governments use law to control and influence other countries. As we know, before the emergence of the United Nations rule, dominion or taking over of another's country was achieved through wars, and under the watchful eye of the United Nations Russia, China, and North Korea are leading the world back into the dark ages of war and oppression. Christians need to pray because evil is awaiting the world. I repeat what the Lord revealed to me, the USA and Europe will be toppled financially, and then the birth of the NEW WORLD ORDER!

The Christian Spirit

 Being Childish In Attitude

"He called a little child to him and placed the child among them.  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 18:2-4).

We will be delivering a very brief but important article this week. Humility is not really an attitude that is innate to humans, the bible teaches us that it is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22). A brother in the Lord once shared with me that when he drove his daughter to school one morning, he gently corrected or rebuked his born-again daughter about something she did. Now according to the brother, his rebuke was not well received. While she (his daughter) didn't say anything to him, he could sense that she became angry, at that moment the Lord revealed to him that when a person gets upset or becomes angry for being corrected their attitudinal response is demonic (Galatians 5:20), but when a person's verbal or attitudinal response appears gentle they would have responded from the full conviction of the Holy Spirit (Acts 23:5).

How To Discern The Holy Spirit In a Believer

Often, it is very easy to observe the presence of the Holy Spirit in a person's life, not merely by what they say or their work in the ministry, but a humble attitude is easy to discern and God knows, the attitude of Christ shine through such a person (Philippians 2:5-11). Kindly allow me to share another testimony from a dear brother in Christ. Now, brother Joe shared with me a few years ago, how the Lord humbled which costs him his job after he elevated himself. 

The Penalty For Self-Importance

As it was, about a 10-minute telephone conversation got our brother Joe hot under the collar, which resulted in a yelling and insulting match with neither party willing to back down. Our brother Joe recalled how that conversation transformed him into comparing his elevated job position to the one his 'foe' had, and when he realized later that their conversation was not private our brother Joe felt very ashamed and humiliated because of his behavior and attitude that he decided to resign with immediate effect. As a result of this folly, our brother Joe was unemployed for about two years before the Lord opened another door of employment for him. During that time of being unemployed, our brother Joe was saturated in debt and almost lost his family home. What a price he paid for being self-conceited!

Brethren, it is a serious matter, a Christian should never elevate him or herself, especially when working with non-Christians. Biblically, Haman the Agagite, who considered himself untouchable and who suffered from an obsessive self-love was not just humiliated, he was hanged on a gallows he built (Esther 5:11-15; 6:5-6; 7:9-10). In other words, he fell on his own sword. As a friendly warning, the Lord is not pleased with Christians who think they are better than others and a Christian who gets offended after being corrected shows no submission to the Holy Spirit who imparts conviction and humility in us (Romans 8:14). The Bible says we grieve the Holy Spirit and our disobedience to His convictions is only inviting wrath from God and ultimately as we disobey so do we receive evil spirits which alter our attitudes (1 Samuel 6:14).

In conclusion, let us thus be careful and humble ourselves by accepting the redemptive guidance of the Holy Spirit who is God's seal upon our lives (Ephesians 1:13).

The Trap To sin

Helping The Weak In Faith

For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence” (Psalm 91:3 NASB). Also, “The wicked have set a trap for me, but I have not wandered from Your precepts” (Psalm 119:110 HSCB).

Naturally, it is common practice among Christians to ostracise and ridicule somebody who fell into a sinful trap and what makes it worse the message the Lord gave that person is being sadly undermined, how hypocritical of those ‘judges’ who joins forces with Satan to destroy the faith and salvation of their fellow brother or sister in the Lord, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to cast a stone at her” (John 8:7 NIV). Does not the Bible remind us that the Lord Himself is not willing to lose any one of those who goes astray (Matthew 18:12). In our experience with our Lord Jesus Christ, the One and Only Judge of the World always welcomes back truly repented sinners (Luke 15:20).

Let us share a brief testimony and we have permission from the Lord to share it, a few years ago a certain sister Kate (Not real name) who joined our Saturday evening intercessory prayers fell into a trap and was seduced by a man who appeared like an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). Now, Kate did inform us about her affair with the man and based on some things she told us about him we doubted his genuineness of faith while we cautioned her to be careful. After her affair with him, she confessed her wrongdoing and showed true humility and remorse so we asked the Lord if she could continue praying with us after what she did, and to our surprise the Lord said she could continue praying with us. As it was, upon further enquiry, the Lord revealed to us that we should not reject and push people aside who needs encouragement after they fell into sin, instead we should continue to love them and encourage them to do the right thing (1 Thessalonians 5:14). Briefly, the Scriptures do however have a strong warning for those who resist correction and continue sinning wilfully (1 Corinthians 5:9-11).

First The Benefits And Then The Trap

Being a master of intrigue, the devil is a skilful hunter of souls and he surely knows that in order to trap a Christian he would have to provide a benefit that is irresistible to our ever lustful eyes (Genesis 3:4-6; 1 John 2:16; Haggai 1:9; Proverbs 27:20). In other words, the devil appeals to our various desires and that blinds and weakens us into submission. What are some of those desires? If we have a particular dislike and harbour hateful feelings like Absalom in a brother or sister in the Lord we would fall into the trap and agree to hurt by sending out a spirit dislike and ill-feelings that is the benefit we gain to inflict physical or emotional pain (2 Samuel 13:21,28). Also, if the devil has afflicted us with a spirit of jealousy like King Saul against David we would respond to that desire to eliminate the threat and reap the benefit of our victory (1 Samuel 18:9). And if we are greedy to acquire more wealth and certain things like Gehazi, the enemy has set a trap that will cause us to stumble and sin (2 Kings 5:21-27). Additionally, if we hold a grudge against someone our benefit would be the joy of seeing that person 'suffer'. Equally, a glutton's benefit is his or her constant craving for food. Thus in all situations, the trap has bait which is the benefit, but the penalty is sin which has consequences (Romans 6:23).

How To Avoid The Trap Of Sin

For humans sin is unavoidable (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:10) and we are led into sin either deliberately [by choice] where desires and failure to obey the Lord (Romans 6:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:22) has the better of us or we are forced or cornered by circumstances to please people which the Bible recognised as sinning (Galatians 2:11-14). Either way a trap as we acknowledged above has benefits but it brings shame upon us, it also shows our lack of commitment to the Lord and our failure to exercise self-control (2 Peter 1:5).

Furthermore, there is more than just one way to avoid falling into the trap of sin. Some brethren are driven by anxiousness and the frustrations of challenges (Mark 4:19), discouragements and a cold love towards the Lord (Revelations 2:4). Through the Holy Spirit, we have been reviving our faith and commitment in the Lord through prayer, daily bible reading, discerning and following the guidance of the Holy Spirit, which requires faith and fellowship with the brethren (Hebrews 10:25; 1 Peter 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). Therefore by doing this we will stand rock solid, and firmly rooted in Christ leaving no room for the trap of sin (Matthew 7:24-27).

As always, we would like to extend an invitation to anyone who does not know the Lord Jesus Christ yet, or of you are not born again, to pray our suggested prayer on this link Prayer of Sincere Repentance by faith and follow the Lord (Matthew 4:19). You may also contact us for any questions or comments about this article or our ministry.

Blessed Love to you in Christ,
