Walk worthy of the vocation!

God wouldn’t be God if we were to serve him whichever way we want. Jesus left us an example, that’s why he’s Christ. He left us a standard, a way or pattern worthy to be followed by us who believe. "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it" Exodus 25:1,8-9.


I don’t know how you are making yours, but I want you to know the things of God ain’t that confusing as is purported by false prophets. Remember, "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all" Ephesians 4:4-6.

For that reason Paul says, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:1-3.

We each should endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit, not as dictated by us or our feelings, but ordered by Him in the bond of peace, and us flowing together according to the measure of the gift of Christ, or grace given to each one of us. 

In the body of Christ is enough grace for everyone; to be humble, and gentle, and to be patient with each other, whether it be for our faults because of love.

It’s sad that  some prophets, some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers are busy destroying the body of Christ, who instead of perfecting or edifying the body of Christ are walking in uncleanness, fornication and covetousness. How do I know that’s what they do? By their fruits of course. They even toss believers to and fro, "with every wind of doctrine.....and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive" Ephesians 4:14. 

But I write like this because I want you to grow in Christ in all things; "the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part..."Ephesians 4:16. 

I want you to grow in Christ in all things, not in ignorance or vanity of the mind. "If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another" Ephesians 4:21-25.

Some of us we got to learn to put off literal old prophets from our lives, false prophets which we know are corrupt and dishonest in our feast of charity. After you’ve done it, put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…
