He will set up a banner for the nations!

Isaiah saw a word that revealed to him the days of the Lord; he saw the Lord’s birth, death and resurrection and the peace we all have received because of Him.  Remember how in time past we were not a people my friend, but now we’re the people of God: we had not obtained mercy, but now we have obtained mercy. Isaiah said; " The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined, " Isaiah 9:2. We’re not perfected as yet. Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in our vexation.  Anyway, let’s move on. Here he said, " It shall come to pass in that day...the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil, " Isaiah 10:27. He said, " And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might; the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord, " Isaiah 11:2. In His days, Christ’s days, our days, all the earth shall be

See beyond the impossible...

Those who are fearful-hearted, " Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come....and save you. " See beyond the impossible; open your eyes and your ears too. Jackals are having their last laugh, because they can’t stand what’s coming. But you shall leap for joy! Water will spring " in the habitation of jackals, where each lay, There shall be grass with reeds and rushes, " Isaiah 35:7. As for the jackals, you will see them no more. " A highway shall be there, and a road, And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, Shall not go astray, " Isaiah 35:8. It’s the Lord’s doing, he’s come to redeem you, " And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away, " Isaiah 35:10. See beyond the impossible, look beyon

We’ve seen a great light!

In time past we were not a people my friend, but now we’re the people of God: we had not obtained mercy, but now we have obtained mercy. Isaiah said; " The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined, " Isaiah 9:2. Not that we have already attained; we’re not perfected as yet. " Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation... " Isaiah 9:1. We now have hope! It is not the same as we were ignorant of God. But now we believe and this hope we have is the anchor of the soul, and we press on like Paul, that we may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of us. He said, " I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained,

Hope in God

Some people are bent on troubling others. It’s true some people are bent on troubling others. They can make war with you for no reason especially if you’re a Christian, but don’t worry my friend for whatever it is they’re trying to do shall not stand. The Lord will surely establish you  if you believe. But how do they make war with you?  They anonymously deploy to you spiritual forces, the tools of wickedness (fear, hatred, lying, gossip, envy) to fight or scare you off, and to make you fill like you are in a storm. But whatever that is people are plotting against you my friend, " thus says the Lord GOD: "It shall not stand, Nor shall it come to pass, " (Isaiah 7:7) for God is with us. What do you need to do, wear a charm? No my friend, absolutely nothing, except that you love the Lord.  " For the Lord says, "Because he loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name. When he calls on me, I will answer; I will be with him in trou

The new birth!

There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. One needs to jump out of his comfort zone to understand or enter the kingdom of God. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, " Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God ..." John 3:2. But knowing should not be your destination, instead perform that you know - " Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God, " John 3:3. Be born again my friend, born of the water and Spirit.  Jump out of your comfort zone, and challenge the status quo; challenge yourself, your vision, your gift, your organisation, your culture, your best practices, your beliefs, etc. You must be born again my friend, born of the Spirit. Do not marvel,  for with God all things are possible - it’s doable! " Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? " John 3:10. If you p

Nations descended from Noah...

Nations were divided on the earth after the flood; " These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood, " Genesis 10:32. After the flood, the sons of Noah, had sons, (and daughters also) born to them according to their generations, in their nations, " everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations, " Genesis 10:5. Chapter 11 tells us how they got spread, and became nations. They were migrating as one group until the incident at the Tower of Babel,  " the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth ..."Genesis 11:8. But, how come some people are white and others black, etc, if we are all descendants of  Noah? The Lord said in Genesis 11:7, " Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech ." It was the doing of the

Behold, I establish My covenant with you...

So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth ," Genesis 9:1. The blessing upon us Christians is to fill the earth with our own kind. That’s our responsibility, duty,  or charge; to be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth with our ways. God enabled us to be in control. " The fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand, " Genesis 9:2. Every demon knows that, they fear and dread of our spiritual essence.  You should know that you’re capable of my friend. Know your limits too, that you’re not supposed to do.  Yes we’re powerful creatures, " but you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood, " Genesis 9:4.   God made us in his image,  that we should thrive together, not that we should eat, devour, destroy, use, or take advantage of each other.
