Can a transgender be saved?

The gospel must be preached to all, dead or alive, straight or gay that all may be judged according to Christ at his return.  "For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit" 1 Peter 4:6.
Can a transgender be saved? Yes they can! If the gospel was preached to them that are dead, that they may live according to God in the spirit, it can also be preached to anybody who had their bodies punished with death. 
No one should be shout out of the mercies and graces of God. I would that everyone live according to God in the spirit, regardless. 1 Peter 4:2 says,  "That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God."The end of the world is coming soon!
Everyone will face the Judge of all, living and dead; they will be punished for the way they have lived, and we all will.
God bless,

Understanding Spiritual Growth!

"Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord." Ezekiel 37:5-6
Apostle Peter says, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious" 1 Peter 2:2-3.
From the day you are born again through to maturity, true believers continue to grow, learn and develop themselves, and that development can also be measured. The order in which believers advance from one milestone to the next is roughly the same, however, each believer will develop at a different rate and their development may not progress evenly across all areas.
What do we mean by growth and development? 
Growth is the increase in size of the body – in height, weight and other measurable areas. I hear Job say, "…

Create a Culture of Coaching!

"And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan." Genesis 14:14
Coaching is one tool that can be used to assist others to develop. It is increasingly becoming popular and effective in the ministry of the word. One development tool that is often confused with coaching is training. Training is the process by which someone learns a new skill or acquires a new segment of knowledge. At the end of training, the individual may be able to do the job, like is the case with the scripture above. It is possible to train, but fail to achieve the required standards. Training can be formal (e.g. training courses) or informal (on-the-job). True learning occurs when the learner has transferred it from the training environment into the ‘real world’, and when he/she has made a substantial change in behaviour or way of doing things. This is where coaching comes in.
That’s the reas…

Lord, teach us to pray!

We go to church, but unfortunately many of us go intriguing for our own benefits, not God’s. In Zechariah’s days some also went to church, to seek a blessing and to speak with the priests and prophets about "whether they must continue their traditional custom of fasting...as they had been doing for so long" Zechariah 7:3.
The thing is they were crying to God, but God would not hear. They never tried to figure out why God was ignoring them. I like it when we persist, but only in well doing.
Anyway, the Lord asked them, when you fast and mourn, are you really earnest about leaving your sins behind and coming back to me or you do it for your own benefit? 
We’re not saved to profit carnally; ”It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" John 6:63.

The prophets warned it will surely lead to ruin if we continue with that attitude.
In regard to fasting, God says, "Is not this the fast that I…

The Four Spirits!

"And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass" Zechariah 6:1.
These four chariots were separately pulled by red,  black, white and speckled horses, and the colour coding determined their respective callings or assignments.
"Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth" Zechariah 6:4-5
The four spirits

The Holy Ghost is in our lives to pull us or direct us to do God’s work.
The chariots that was pulled by the black horses went north, and the one pulled by white horses followed it there. The speckled horses went south, and the red horses patrolled back and forth across the earth.  Their task, or the spirit’s task was to execute God’s judgement, and so the red horses carried…

Continue learning!

Continue learning!

One of the reasons the Holy Ghost was sent is that you as a believer may continue learning. He equips you much in every way, and besides, becoming literate preempt the skills you will require in the future.

How do you learn more?

First, avail yourself to the Holy Ghost everyday, to new wine, then decide also what you want to get out of learning. The mistake believers do is read the bible for the sake of doing it. That way you won't get anywhere myself, except to entangle yourself and get confused and be lost in a flood of information. No wonder Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:7, "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
Decide what you want to get out of the learning process, what format would suit you best and, how much to spend.

The good thing with the Holy Ghost is he gives you the tools and the resources you need to continue learning.

Create a desire in yourself to want to learn more and to increase knowledge.

Spiritual gifts!

"Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy" 1 Corinthians 14:1 
First I would like to address this issue of speaking in tongues; it’s okay to speak in tongues, when talking to God, but not to others when you can’t interpret, since they won’t be able to under you.
But if your desire is to help others grow in the Lord like mine is, then prophesying,  encouraging and comforting is it that will help them grow, not tongues, proverbs or dark sayings. 
There is one funny thing with believers; they want God to lower the table for them but themselves ain’t able to lower it for others. I grow up in a church were church ministers it wouldn’t matter where, but they would only preach in English. Com’on folks, we want only simple gospel summations.
It is true that speaking in tongues helps you grow spiritually, but prophesying or preaching, helps others grow in holiness and happiness. 
Paul says, "I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather t…

Growing up in the Holy Spirit

Growing up with the Holy Spirit 
"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant" 1 Corinthians 12:1.
Believers who grow up surrounded and interwoven with the Holy Ghost have their lives also increase for the better.
The Holy Spirit does not come in our lives only to entertain us, folks. He comes for our betterment, we have this treasure, that through us the excellency of the power of God may be revealed.
He equips us, he gives us the skills necessary for us to profit from the word of God, and to understand of how it works too, rather than solely possessing knowledge. Holy Ghost literacy is a requirement for the believer, it’s a necessity for you in today’s age. 
Some Christians, especially pentecostals, and spiritualists are voracious talkers of the Holy Spirit, but they lack the programming skills, their lives are empty. He came that your life, your faith should improve.  "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.&quo…

What do you see now?

Zechariah, in a vision he saw a candlestick with seven lamps, and at the top it had a bowl and oil was flowing through seven tubes feeding the seven lamps. He said to the angel, I see "two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof" Zechariah 4:3, and he then asked, "What are these, my lord? What does this mean?
I am a typical example of him, for I also ask about anything. Anyway, meanwhile Zerubbabel was busy building the temple, and by all means had laid the foundations, facing resistance from every angle. His dilemma was twofold; he was building God a house but the problem God wasn’t building with him, and resistance.
Then the angel said to Zechariah, "Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord." Zechariah 4:5.
It’s good news for Zerubbabel!
"...This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Who art thou, O great …
