Relationship between leadership and followership!

A leader leads whereas a follower follows. A leader cannot lead if there are no followers, likewise a follower cannot follow if there is no leader.

Do you now see, why probably some leaders want to hold on to people? It’s followership they want, and of course yourself you want to be led. If you are a believer, ask yourself who should I be following?  Please let it not be a hypocrite!

The Holy Spirit is the only one who can lead you into all truth. Not this business where "one saith, I am of Paul; [and another saying,] I am of Apollos" 1 Corinthians 3:4.

If that’s what you do, you are yet carnal, and you need one teach you again the foundations.

If you’re still looking to men as your leader; you’ve lost the faith towards God and that of sound doctrine. If you’re a leader who’s busy pointing people to yourself, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of he…

Perilous times shall come!

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come" 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

Perilous times shall come; and here is how you will know; "men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" 2 Timothy 3:3-5.

What it means, as believers your faith is exposed to imminent risk of disaster or ruin, "and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" Matthew 24:12.

Iniquity is in nothing but our conduct. Paul said men, meaning you and me shall be lovers of our own-selves. It’s not only the people in world who are proud, but us christians also. It’s not sinners but believers who’ve a form of godliness, who…

The supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ!

Paul says, "in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death" Philippians 1:19-20.

How is Christ magnified in your life?

When the kingdom of God and the name of Christ is always glorified in all that you do.  That’s our calling folks, we’re set apart for the work of Christ, to forgo our ways, and  willingly and unselfishly minister, give, impart, furnish, provide, contribute and towards the needs/wants of other believers.

Paul says, Epaphroditus, "Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me" Philippians 2:30. Hereby we know you’ve the true spirit of Christ, if or when you supply, minister to the needs of others also.

May the Lord put the same earnest care in your heart also; that your abundance in the grace of God  may be to supply of that lacking in others also, that because of you the…

God is a Spirit!

I would like all my friends to know, that, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth" John 4:24 KJV

Deep calls for deep my friend; and they that worship God MUST worship him in spirit and in truth. You don’t serve him anyway you like, but, the Spirit of truth, should "guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come" John 16:13.

The Spirit, (not reason) should be allowed to detect the things of God to you, and guide you into all truth. Sermons should not be based on reason,  but truth. Paul says,

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and receive…

Grant, O Lord, thy protection!

May the Lord keep you safe. May he  shelter, cover, shield and defend you from harm all through your life. May you visibly see that he is doing so, not hearsay. Don’t even guess, but know for children who are under the protection of their parents don't even guess, but they know that their parents are keeping them safe.

"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" How Luke 11:13. He's already given you the Holy spirit.

"How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" Hebrews 9:14. There's protection for you in the blood of Jesus.

"If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?" Luke 12:28. He will cover…

I will not be afraid!

David in Psalm 56:11 says, "In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me."

He said, "this I know; for God is for me." It’s all in the book! Deuteronomy 20:1 says, "When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."

Be not afraid: the Lord thy God is with thee! "Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked" Psalm 91:5 - 8

Be not afraid, of evil tidings, of bad dreams or sudden fear, because the Lord thy God is with you.

Why we go to church

Church is a place where the Lord your God has chosen to place his name there.

Moses said, thou shalt go there, "and worship before the Lord thy God" Deuteronomy 26:10.

You go to Church to worship the Lord, and to "rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house..." Deuteronomy 26:11. While there also you petition the Lord to bless you too.

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 says, "This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, a…

The First vs The Second Covenant

The First Covenant

There was a sacred tent down here on earth.

Inside this place of worship there were two rooms;

The first part was called the Holy Place. "Then there was a curtain, and behind the curtain..." Hebrews 9:3was the second part called the Holy of Holies.
The priests went in and out of the first room whenever they wanted to, doing their work, but only the high priest went into the inner room, and that he would do only once a year, all alone, and always with blood that he sprinkled on the mercy seat as an offering to God to cover his own mistakes and sins and the mistakes and sins of all the people.

Under the old system no ordinary believer could go into the Holy of Holies, even today as long as the entire system it represents were still in use. Gifts and sacrifices were offered, but these failed to cleanse the hearts of the people who brought them; the old system only dealt with certain rituals-what foods to eat and drink, rules for washing themselves, and rules a…

The Tower of Babel

After the flood, people were speaking a single language. These agreed to build a city and a tower tall enough to reach heaven. God, observing their city and tower, confounds their speech so that they can no longer understand each other, and he scattered them around the world.

Why God confounded them is because the tower was never dedicated to him, but was about their pride and ego that they built that city and tower. There is only one way to reach heaven my friend, and Jesus is.

Throughout history whenever people would try to build structures with similar elements, especially not according to his will, God would disapprove, again and again and again. It wouldn’t matter who is doing it. He said to Moses, "And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. [9] 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 25:8-9.

The Bible says, "And the whole earth was …

How you can shape your destiny

"Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them" Deuteronomy 1:8 KJV.

Go in and possess the land

Here is how you shape your destiny; "go in and possess the land." The land is before you. "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth" Genesis 1:28.

But before you go my friend, you need God’s blessing. It comes only when you’re able to hearken, listen or give respectful attention. That you call faith is simply to hearkenThe Lord says, "Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers giveth you" Deuteronomy 4:1.

What’s that…

Christ abideth for ever!

"...the Lord said...", and  "...speak to the children of Israel..." are two interesting phrases which signifies winds of  change, and that God was about to do something new.
Whenever God visited and spoke in this manner, it was life changing; a new promise/ covenant would be enabled, and the people would shift and focus on the new declarations.  Any person who would not change, but continue drinking the old wine would miss it. Each time God visited Abraham,  he entered into a new covenant with him, one  that would superceed the old, that He also did with Adam, Cain, Noah, Isaac and Jacob, and Moses also and the prophets. Each time he visited them He would improve the covenant, founded upon better promises. The event were progressive. There no believer who wants to be caught up holding to old promises, covenants or past anointing. Imagine what Israel would have lost if he had continued with his old name Jacob? He would still be a supplanter. Why are you Jabez? Beca…
