My believe is based on the word of God.

I am not moved by What I See. I am not moved by What I feel. I am moved by what I believe.

Hope and faith

Heb 11:1; Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Our Father in Heaven tells us that faith is the Substance of things hoped for. Now let’s take a second to let that Statement sink into our Subconscious. In Chemistry a substance is defined as a matter which has a specific composition and specific properties. In order Words a Substance has a physical mass. Yet faith which is generally perceived as an abstract term is being referred to as a Substance of Things hoped for.

In order to understand This Statement, we first have to differentiate between hope and Faith. Hope and Faith in my opinion are very similar yet worlds apart. For they both refer to the ability or act of believing in Something which isn’t, for example we all hope for a bright future, for health, Wealth, joy, peace, for a good job, for success in Exams etc. Hope is the ability to look beyond the present (which may not be favorable) and see the possibility of that which we want to project into our future. For The Word of God says in

Romans {8:24} For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? {8:25} But if we hope for that we see not, [then] do we with patience wait for [it. ]

From the above passage we can deduce that hope is primarily there to save us from falling into despair in our present Situation no matter how dire the realities surrounding us may seem. It gives us strength to continue moving ahead and not to throw in the towel and give up, on everything. For if we yield to fear and despair, even the little which we have in the present would also be taken away from us. Hope is passive it involves patiently standing firm and believing in a brighter future. However, hope in my opinion does not guarantee the future we hope for. Whereas faith Is the evidence that, that which we hope for will come to pass.

Hoping in a Brighter future is patiently awaiting and believing in the possibility of a brighter future. Whereas, having faith in a brighter future is having evidence that the possibility of a brighter future will come to fruition based on the application of the Word of God in our lives. This is so simple and yet so complicated, for in my opinion I believe that a lot of us Christians, my self not excluded, have confused hope for faith. For we proclaim that we have faith in God for a specific matter, yet all we do is sit down and wait for a miracle to suddenly happen. Whereas we ought to study the Word of God base on the matter at hand, find out what we ought to do to qualify us for that blessing or miracle e.g. fasting and praying, tithing, studying the Word of God, giving up worldly habits, forgiving those who have sinned against us etc. and doing it. For Faith with out works is dead.

Therefor in order to have faith in God on a certain matter. We have to find out Gods Word based on that issue, believe in the potency of the Word, act on the Word and confess the Word of God based on that issue. For then and only then can we as Christians claim to have faith.

Stay blessed and full of faith.

PS: for further Reading I would strongly refer you to the book of Hebrews Chapter 11

The Word of God

John 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV); 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Without beating too much around the bush, let us dive right into the meat of the matter. The Passage above enables us to understand that the Word of God is God. For us to further understand this, let us imagine that we are making an Application, purchasing items, cashing a check or acting on behalf of someone else. It goes with out saying that in other to do these things, one would need at least a Letter of Authorization or something that proves that we are acting in consensus with the will of the person in question. In other words, even though the person that authorized one, with a check to collect money from his or her Account, or with a Letter of Authority to perform a certain action/task in his or her name is not physically Present, one is still able to operate as if the authorizer in question were present or as we and the authorizer were one and the same person.

The Word of God in my Opinion can be equated to a Letter of Authority from God. For when a Christian is imbibing and Operating with the Word of God. It is equivalent to him of her operating as a god. For according to the scripture above, the Word of God contains life and that life is that light of men. Therefor the amount of light we wield is dependent on the depth or amount of the Word of God we Practice.

Mind you there is a difference between reading, understanding, writing, preaching and actually practicing the Word of God. Knowing and understanding the Word of God are very necessary, but at the end of the day, it is putting the Word to use consciously and subconsciously that bring fort fruits.

Matthew 7:15-20 New King James Version (NKJV);15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Therefor I employ everyone to read and understand the word of God with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Stay Blessed.

Dominion

The Anointing of Our God is a Gift, which one cannot buy with money or Merit. It is the Gift of the Holy Spirit in Our Lives.

The word “Anointing” can be literally defined as the act of rubbing or smearing or pouring aromatic oil over the head of a Person or Object. The act of Anointing signifies the act of consecration/dedication, healing etc.

However, the Gift of the Holy Spirit is not Simply the pouring of aromatic oil on one’s head but the Release of Fire, yes, the Release of Power on one’s life.

Luke 3:16; John said, “I am just baptizing with water. But someone more powerful is going to come, and I am not good enough even to untie his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

The manifestation of the Gift of the Holy Spirit in a Christians Life makes the difference. It is the level of anointing/power active in ones Life that differentiates the victims from the dominators. In my opinion, victims can be described as honorable, God-fearing women and men. Who do their best to keep the commandments of God but are still subject, due to their level of anointing, to the realities of life i.e. powers that be in this world. This often results in them always having to make compromises that go against their Christianity.

On the other hand, the dominators can be described as the very few Christians who have received the Holy Spirit i.e. power, light and actively apply the word of God e.g. prayer and fasting, wisdom, charity etc. to manifest light God in us. In order to consume very darkness around us thereby dominating our circumstances.

1 John 4:4; Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Therefor very Christian, including myself, has to strive to operate in the realm of domination. That means being conscious of the fact that God is in us and that, the power of God is at our disposal to dominate the powers that be in this world, if only we are willing to access it.

BEWARE OF MAJORITY!

Today: 2016-01-16

 

Never be enticed or carried away by public views or majority stand.

To join the crowd is to get lost in and with the crowd. Always stand on what is right and not on what is popular. God boycotted the popular majority to bless the minority. Elisha with double portion of the anointing. God is never moved by the majority, but by a heart that greatly pants after him. 2 Chronicles.16.9, Isaiah.66.1-3

But why do people easily drift to the majority and popular side?

Fear of been different

Fear of been alone

Fear of been maligned

Disloyalty.

Insincerity.

Beware. If you bend you will blend and if you blend you will loose your identity. And if you loose your identity you will loose your uniqueness.

RESPONDING TO CHALLENGES

Today: 2016-01-04

 

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
Proverbs 24:16

In the journey of life challenges will certainly come.
They don’t require your opinion or invitation.
They will come without prior notice. Therefore, live ready for them.
They come as waves on their own not necessarily to hurt, damage or destroy.
While some are swept off and fizzle out with challenges some others glide over them as if nothing ever happened or ever came their way.
It’s all a matter of attitude, the mind set, mentality and expectations.
You can glide over the waves while some others are swept away by it.
Even if you are ever swept off your feet by the floods of life, you can come over the waters again by the scriptural provision that you will rise again, even after seven times of fall if you ever fell up to seven times.

Wenn Sie glauben, Sprechen

Heute: 2016.01.01

 

Erinnere, siegreich zu sein ist eine Funktion deines Glaubens. Und der Glaube wird durch Perspektive, Gedanken und Wortern zum Ausdruck gebracht. So beginnt es mit dem was Sie sehen, oder wie Sie das Leben im Einklang mit dem Wort Gottes bringen. Und dann wird der Prozess fortgesetzt, weil das, was Sie sehen, werden Sie denken und das was Sie denken, werden Sie natürlich sagen.

“… Für aus der Fülle des Herzens der Mund  redet”  (Mt 12,34). Der Glaube spricht immer! Was auch immer Sie nicht sagen können, ist das, was Sie  wirklich nicht glauben können. In 2. Korinther 4.13 sagte Apostel Paulus:

13 Dieweil wir aber denselbigen Geist des Glaubens haben, nach dem,
das geschrieben steht : »Ich glaube, darum rede ich«, so glauben wir
auch, darum so reden wir auch

Das was Sie sagen, ist der Beweis für euren Glauben. Und Markus 11,23 versichert Ihnen, dass Sie das haben werden, welches Sie sagen.

Als Mose 12 Spione in das gelobte Land schickte, kehrten sie zurück und 10 von ihnen sagte: “Wir sind nicht in der Lage, um das Land zu nehmen.”  Aber zwei von ihnen sagte: “Lasst uns hinaufziehen, denn wir sind voll in der Lage, um das Land zu nehmen. Unser Gott wird das Land in unseren Händen tun “.  Sie alle sahen die gleichen Dinge in das Gelobte Land; die Früchte, der Milch und die Riesen. Aber wegen der unterschiedlichen Perspektiven, sagten sie unterschiedliche Dinge, und Gott sprach zu Mose:

28 Darum sprich zu ihnen : So wahr ich lebe, spricht der Herr, ich will euch tun, wie ihr vor meinen Ohren gesagt habt. (Numeri 14 : 28).

Also, tut Gott nach, das was Sie sagen. Was auch immer Gott Sie sagen hört, ist das was seine Hand für Sie durchzuführen wird. Gottes Hand wird für Sie nie größere Dinge durchführen als das, was man in seinen Ohren sagt.

Es gibt viele Dinge, die passieren, und Sie werden entweder der Schuld Gott oder die Schuld der Teufel zugeordnet, aber die Wahrheit ist, dass es Ihrer Wahl war ist. Sie wählten es durch Ihrer Rede.

Die 12 Spione gingen an der gleichen Stelle, aber, während 10 von Ihnen Umständen sahen, sahen die beiden anderen Möglichkeiten. Wenn Umständen alles ist, was Sie in Ihre Umgebung sehen können, werden Sie weiterhin, um die Umstände beschreiben, bis es auf Ihrem Herzen eingeschrieben ist und danach fängt es an, in Ihrem Leben zu manifestieren. Passen Sie auf! Was Sie beschreiben, wird in Kürze auf Ihrem Herzen eingeschrieben sein. Was auch immer auf Ihrem Herzen eingeschrieben ist, wird bald Expression durch Ihren Mund finden. Und wenn Sie es sagen, wird es für Sie eingerichtet.

Die 10 Spione sahen sich als Heuschrecken neben den Riesen und so wurden sie eingeschüchtert. Sie können nicht ständig an Ihre Opposition schauen und am Ende nicht eingeschüchtert werden. Der einzige Weg, um Einschüchterung zu entkommen ist es, dein Gott zu sehen, der größer ist als Ihre Opposition. Und dann öffnen Sie Ihren Mund weit auf um zu erzählen, was dein Gott, für Sie tun wird. Prahlen Sie mit Stolz in den Herrn und so wird er Sie steigern, bis du deine Gegensätze überholst.

Meditiere über diese: Psalm 81:10,

10 daß unter dir kein anderer Gott sei und du keinen fremden Gott

anbetest.

11 Ich bin der Herr, dein Gott, der dich aus Ägyptenland geführt

hat : Tue deinen Mund weit auf, laß mich ihn füllen !

 

Markus 11,23

23 Wahrlich, ich sage euch : Wer zu diesem Berge spräche : Hebe dich

und wirf dich ins Meer ! und zweifelte nicht in seinem Herzen,

sondern glaubte, daß es geschehen würde, was er sagt, so wird’s

ihm geschehen, was er sagt

It’s quite simple

The secret to a fulfilled and content life is actually not complicated, but somehow we just keep up making things more complicated with our lusts and prejudices against this or that. Most times when I am at crossroads I often find it easier to stand there and contemplate about what the better choice would be rather than “manning up” and making a decision. Even after the decision has been made, I always tends to want second guess that decision. However after reading the Word below from Proverbs 2:5-6

5 ¶ Trust in the LORD with all

thine heart; and lean not unto thine

own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him,

and he shall direct thy paths.

I’m feeling quite silly with myself, for as stated earlier, with Christ Jesus issues aren’t complicated but quite simple. For the answer to indecisiveness and doubt is simply trusting in Our Lord Jesus Christ with all our heart in everything we do.

I really don’t how people without our Lord Jesus Christ handle these complexities of life. However I can assure you out of experience that the simplest, most Joyous and sorrow free way to overcome this world which we live in, is through accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and working with him.

GOD IS CLOSER TO US THAN THE ENEMY IS

Today: 2015-12-29

…Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

Matthew 28:20

Contrary to man’s thinking that God is far away in time of
problems.  God is the very present help in trouble. Ps 46:1.

1 God is our refuge and strength, a
very present help in trouble.

Solution is closer to us than problems are.Gen.21:19

19 And God opened her eyes, and
she saw a well of water; and she
went, and filled the bottle with water,
and gave the lad drink.

Light is closer to us than darkness is. Psalm 27:1

1 The LORD is my light and my
salvation; whom shall I fear? the
LORD is the strength of my life; of
whom shall I be afraid?

Solution is closer to us than question is.

God is closer to us than satan is. Psalm 46:1-11,

1 God is our refuge and strength, a
very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear,
though the earth be removed, and
though the mountains be carried
into the midst of the sea;
3 Though the waters thereof roar
and be troubled, though the mountains
shake with the swelling thereof.
Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams
whereof shall make glad the city of
God, the holy place of the tabernacles
of the most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she
shall not be moved: God shall help
her, and that right early.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms
were moved: he uttered his voice, the
earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the
LORD, what desolations he hath
made in the earth.
9 He maketh wars to cease unto the
end of the earth; he breaketh the
bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;
he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am
God: I will be exalted among the
heathen, I will be exalted in the
earth.
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Matthew.28:20.

20 Teaching them to observe all
things whatsoever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with you alway,
even unto the end of the world.
Amen.

The door is closer to you than the barrier is.

Whenever you are face to face with the enemy, turn aside and
you will see God.

That is what made the difference between Moses and the
children of God. Exodus 14:10-16

10 ¶ And when Pharaoh drew nigh,
the children of Israel lifted up their
eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians
marched after them; and they were
sore afraid: and the children of Israel
cried out unto the LORD.
11 And they said unto Moses, Because
there were no graves in Egypt,
hast thou taken us away to die in the
wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt
thus with us, to carry us forth out of
Egypt?
12 Is not this the word that we did
tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us
alone, that we may serve the Egyptians?
For it had been better for us to
serve the Egyptians, than that we
should die in the wilderness.
13 ¶ And Moses said unto the people,
Fear ye not, stand still, and see
the salvation of the LORD, which he
will shew to you to day: for the
Egyptians whom ye have seen to day,
ye shall see them again no more for
ever.
14 The LORD shall fight for you,
and ye shall hold your peace.
15 ¶ And the LORD said unto
Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto
me? speak unto the children of Israel,
that they go forward:
16 But lift thou up thy rod, and
stretch out thine hand over the sea,
and divide it: and the children of Israel
shall go on dry ground through
the midst of the sea.

When you look at the enemy you see an end but when you see
God you see a new beginning.

When you set your eyes on the enemy you end as dwarf, but
when you look at God you grow as giant.

As the children of Israel looked at the sea and the pursuing
Egyptians, they feared but as Moses looked at God he returned bold.

When you see the invisible you dare and do the impossible.
Hebrews11:27

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not
fearing the wrath of the king: for he
endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

When you see the invisible God you endure the existing trying
opposition.

Now begin to see opportunities in adversities.

Nichts tun heißt nichts bekommen

Heute: 2015.12.28

 

Die Formel um nichts zubekommen ist einfach und geradlinig: man muss einfach nichts tun.

Dies ist die Grenze zwischen Erfolg und Misserfolg.

Erfolgreiche Menschen sind immer dabei etwas zu tun, während Misserfolge beobachten, nichts zu tun, was auch immer.

Wenn man nichts macht, dann sollte man nichts erwarten.

Nichts zu tun, disqualifiziert Sie davon, etwas zu erhalten.

Diejenigen, die nichts tun, sollten nicht erwarten, etwas zu haben.

Kein Mensch erntet, von wo er nicht gesät hat!

Was Sie tun, bestimmt, was Sie erhalten.
