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 mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it." Zechariah 4:6-7.

This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, it’s time now you let God do the work.

It’s good news for you too my friend, you don’t have to labour to do God’s work, "For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth" Zechariah 4:10.

You don’t need to fight in this battle, for God has chosen you to fight for you. "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord" Zechariah 2:10.

Sing and rejoice; for the Lord has chosen you again. He has chosen you to be his portion and Holy habitation.

He says, "lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord." For I, saith the Lord, will be ... a wall of fire round about you, and will be the glory amidst you! "...he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye" Zechariah 2:8.

What is pastor saying? I’m saying have hope, and grace to you ; "And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure" 1 John 3:3.

God bless,

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."…
