BUILD THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, AND THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU AND HE WILL MAKE YOU LIKE HIS SIGNET RING; FOR IN THE PAST YOU EXPECTED MUCH, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE LITTLE:

At this point in time today, The LORD is going to help us to understand a very deep message. This message can be summarized as follows: “Building the House (Temple) of The LORD”, even though the most extensive whole topic is as noted above.

So, as we may be aware, the body (our body) is the temple of The Holy Spirit. The body herein refers to the wholesome segments of the body, including the segments that it shields, harbours, carries, contains i.e., the soul, the spirit, the mind, the heart and indeed the body itself.

Everyone therefore, should submit their body, soul, spirit, mind and heart to The LORD so that The LORD can cleanse it, purify it, test it and refine it so that it can become the temple of The Holy Spirit: The house of The LORD, so that The LORD can be honoured through it. All this is captured in the book of 1st Corinthians 6:19-20 which states as follows: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;  you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

It is thus very important to note that, it is the combination of very many temples (house/body) of The LORD that make up a Church; because a Church is a temple (a body) of believers. So, this is not just about a physical Church building being built but each individual Temple (house/body) of The LORD being built. That is; the body, the soul, the spirit, the mind and the heart of each individual. In other words, a collection of the temples of The Holy Spirit (souls, spirits, minds, hearts and bodies) is what makes a Church.

The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is essentially saying that: enough is enough, and that it is high time that everybody everywhere realize that the season and the moment for The LORD's house (Temple) to be built has arrived.

Everybody must therefore build the house of The LORD in a Holy, Righteous and an acceptable way, so that The LORD who is Holy can dwell upon this now holy house; which initially was in ruins. So everybody everywhere in all the corners of the earth is called upon by The LORD to submit their bodies, souls, spirits, minds and hearts to The LORD, for it to be set forth as the temple (house) of The LORD. This call is very well stipulated in the book of Haggai 1:2-4 which states as follows: ‘“This is what The LORD Almighty says: “These people say, ‘The time has not yet come to rebuild The LORD’s house.’” Then the word of The LORD came through the prophet Haggai: “Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”’

This means that The LORD has watched very carefully and has been watching very carefully for a long time, and has observed that people everywhere on the earth are very busy with their lifestyles and concerns and yet their bodies which actually is a property of The LORD has been left in ruins. For they have not submitted their souls, spirits, minds, hearts and indeed their bodies to The LORD. That's why we see The LORD proclaiming: “Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”

The LORD is thus calling everybody everywhere to build The House of The LORD, so that the house of The LORD be no longer in ruins, but that The LORD to have pleasure in it and be honoured. This is well stated in the book of Haggai 1:7-8 which states as follows: ‘“This is what The LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says The LORD.”’

So, The LORD is essentially saying that everybody everywhere should now go to Him (The LORD) by seeking Him, inquiring of Him and focusing on Him up on His throne room in Heaven so that He can now release upon them (everyone) the raw materials for building His house (Temple) which is at present in ruins.

These raw materials (timber) for building the house (temple) of The LORD includes prayer, fasting, reading the Bible (the word of God), meditating upon the word of God, fellowship, praising & worshiping The LORD, serving The LORD. The LORD will then purify, refine, cleanse, clean up, revive, restore and sanctify them who submit themselves to Him up in the mountains (In His throne room in Heaven) so that they can bring down timber (The Raw Materials) to build the house (the temple of The LORD), which is now in ruins.

The LORD is saying that because His house remains in ruins as a result of sin and wickedness, He has as a result (consequently) withheld blessings and anointing upon the people. That people expect healings, breakthrough, deliverance, satisfaction and success in their life but they only receive very little of it and at times none of it; and so they yearn for more. This is because the sacrifice they bring before The LORD is unacceptable because it is laced (covered) with sin and wickedness. So, the toil and the prayer of the people (individuals) is in vain, because: “The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked but the prayer of the upright pleases Him.” (Proverbs 15:8).

Therefore, The LORD is calling upon everyone everywhere not to lean onto their own understanding but to focus on Him in Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. This is well captured in the book of Haggai 1:9-11 which states as follows: ‘“You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares The LORD Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”’

So, for some time there has not been open-Heavens but closed Heavens (in many places and amongst many people) as a result of sin in the land and amongst the people and individuals (For the house of The LORD is in ruins). So, the Great move of The LORD and the outpour of The Holy Spirit has been lacking in the land and amongst people and individuals because of the filthiness, sin and wickedness that has ruined the house (Temple) of The LORD (The bodies, the souls, the spirits, the minds and the hearts). That’s why The LORD is declaring: “I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”

The LORD is thus saying that everyone everywhere who hears the call of The LORD and fears The LORD in wisdom, by being obedient to the voice of The LORD, The LORD will help them in building His house (Temple), for He will console them and stir up their spirit by touching them with the power of The Holy Spirit and He will declare to them: “I am with you”. All this is well stated in the book of Haggai 1:12-14 which states as follows: ‘“Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of The LORD their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because The LORD their God had sent him. And the people feared The LORD. Then Haggai, The LORD’s messenger, gave this message of The LORD to the people: “I am with you,” declares The LORD. So The LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole remnant of the people. They came and began to work on the house of The LORD Almighty, their God.”’

The LORD is saying that once His house is built by each and every one submitting their bodies, souls, spirits, minds and hearts to Him (The LORD) for purification, refining, testing, cleansing and sanctification, then The LORD will move in a very powerful and very tremendous way amongst the people. That He will now release His glory, power and anointing amongst the people and The LORD will bring healing, deliverance, restoration, renewal, satisfaction, success, revival and peace amongst the people. That this particular move and glory of The LORD will be to a higher (another) level because the house that was initially in ruins and full of sins will have been purified, cleansed, refined, tested and sanctified and will thus be a Holy, Righteous, Repentant and truthful house (Vessel/temple). There will now not be the restrained release of the glory and the move of The LORD that was there previously, as a result of a ruined house (body/temple) brought about by sin and wickedness. This is well stated in the book of Haggai 2:3-9 which states as follows: ‘“Who of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?  But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares The LORD. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares The LORD, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares The LORD Almighty.  ‘This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’ “This is what The LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.  I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says The LORD Almighty.  ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares The LORD Almighty.  ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says The LORD Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares The LORD Almighty.”’

The LORD is thus saying therein, that even blessings of wealth and prosperity, He will release so long as His house (Temple/House) which was previously in ruins, is built in Repentance for the forgiveness of sins through the blood of The LORD Jesus Christ and thereby taking to the path of Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD The God of Heaven. That’s why The LORD is declaring that: “The silver is mine and the gold is mine”. That’s why we also find The LORD Jesus Christ declaring as follows in the book of Mathew 6:31-34 which states as follows: ‘“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”’

So, the outpour of The Holy Spirit will be in abundance and The LORD will even communicate to His children and servants, both young and old; men and women and even little children through dreams, visions and they will even prophesy in the name of The LORD (through the move of The Holy Spirit). This is well captured in the book of Joel 2:28-29 which states as follows: ‘“And afterward (when the ruined house is built), I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days (when the house/temple of The LORD is built.”’

So, it becomes very clear that when the house (the temple/the body) is in ruins as a result of sin and wickedness, it hinders the glorious Great move of The LORD; and without Repentance of sins and taking to the path of Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and complete surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ, then the sacrifice offered is in vain. This is well stated in the book of Haggai 2:14 which states as follows: ‘“Then Haggai said, ‘So it is with this people and this nation in my sight,’ declares The LORD. ‘Whatever they do and whatever they offer there is defiled.”’

Therefore, sin and wickedness which brings ruins in the house (temple/body) of The LORD leads to a curse upon the individuals, the people and the land. Only when the temple of The LORD (the body, the soul, the spirit, the mind and the heart) is built i.e., submitted for purification, cleansing, restoration, renewal, refining (like silver), testing (like gold) and sanctification does blessings descend (is released) from The LORD: The healings, the deliverance, the satisfaction, the breakthrough, the peace and the success.

Here, it is about the genuine success; any success that is not based in the fear (wisdom) of The LORD is an illusion i.e. a lie that soon passes like a cloud. All these are well captured in the book of Haggai 2:15-19 which states as follows: “‘Now give careful thought to this from this day on—consider how things were before one stone was laid on another in The LORD’s temple. When anyone came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty.  I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail, yet you did not return to me,’ declares The LORD. ‘From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of The LORD’s temple was laid. Give careful thought:  Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. “From this day on I will bless you.’”

Those who become obedient to the call of The LORD and build His house (Temple), The LORD will choose them as His servants and children. The LORD will fight their battles and The LORD will protect them against their enemies, for then the eye and the favour of The LORD will be upon them; meaning that The LORD will make them like His signet ring, for He shall have chosen and anointed them and made them a royal priesthood. He will even overthrow the royal thrones of the world for the benefit of His precious royal priesthood; individually and collectively. All these is well captured in the book of Haggai 2:20-23 which states as follows: ‘“The word of The LORD came to Haggai a second time on the twenty-fourth day of the month: “Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that I am going to shake the heavens and the earth.  I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms. I will overthrow chariots and their drivers; horses and their riders will fall, each by the sword of his brother. “‘On that day,’ declares The LORD Almighty, ‘I will take you, my servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel,’ declares The LORD, ‘and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares The LORD Almighty.”’

This then becomes The Great Revival.

SHALOM!!!

MAY YOU (AND I) GO UP INTO THE MOUNTAINS AND BRING DOWN TIMBER AND BUILD THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, SO THAT THE LORD MAY TAKE PLEASURE IN IT (THE BUILT HOUSE/TEMPLE OF THE LORD) AND BE HONOURED!!!

SHALOM!!!

NOTE: I first posted the above Message (Teaching) on 24th March 2014. It remains relevant today, in the past and forever more. Glory and Honour be to The LORD.

2nd Peter: 1-12 ‘“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.”’

(‘“For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.”’).

REPENTANCE PRAYER:

Precious Jesus,

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I Repent and turn away from all Sin

Please cover me with your Precious Blood,

and establish your Word in my life,

that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness

and Baptize me with the Power of The Holy Spirit

in The Mighty Name of Jesus Christ

AMEN.

TITHES AND OFFERINGS BEFORE THE LORD:

A sister in The LORD (Christ Jesus) from the nation of The Philippines wrote to me a couple of days ago, and this is what she wrote: ‘“Good evening, I would like to ask some help please? My pastor wants me to speak on our Sunday school on the topic about “TITHES”. Will you please give me some ideas about this?”’

So, The LORD is going to give us ideas not only for the children of The LORD in Philippines, but also everybody across the nations of the earth. The LORD is thus going to take us through this very very fundamental issue even as His bride prepares the way for the very imminent coming of The LORD Jesus Christ to rapture His bride.

Tithes and offerings should be part and parcel of a believer in The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. It is an act of showing appreciation and gratitude to The LORD. It is actually an act of worship, because it puts the focus of a believer not on the materiality of the wealth, money or income but the focus of the believer is put on the provider of the wealth, income, money and indeed life itself: This is the creater of everything (both seen and unseen) and His name is The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit.

In the olden times, the Israelites were required to bring to the house of The LORD; their first harvest. This in itself was an act of worship by dedicating a portion of their harvest to The LORD, and in so doing this, they were essentially saying (Including the present remnant church): “If it were not your blessings LORD, I would not have got this harvest, money, income, wealth and indeed life itself, and so here I am to come before you and present this before you as I worship you!!!”.

In other words, it’s an act of saying: “I worship the creater and not the created!!!” That’s why The LORD commanded the Israelites in the book of Exodus 23:19 “Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of The LORD your God.” But it is also very important to note that The LORD gave a very powerful disclaimer/caution before telling the Israelites to bring the best of the firstfruits of their soil to the house of their God.

So, when we slightly go back in this very mighty conversation that The LORD was having with the Israelites, The LORD told them in the book of Exodus 23:18 “Do not offer the blood of a sacrifice to me along with anything containing yeast.” In other words, The LORD was requiring absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to Him when one is bringing before Him a tithe or an offering. This means that one should be cleansed of their sins even as they go before The LORD with their tithes and offering.

So absolute Repentance is very paramount as one brings their tithes and offerings before The LORD. Because if you bring your tithes and offerings before The LORD and you have unrepentant sin(s) in your life, then it’s like bringing before The LORD tithes and offerings which are contaminated and defiled i.e., containing yeast. An example of the sins includes Pride, and so when one brings to The LORD their tithes and offering with a boastful heart, while proclaiming: “Look LORD, how my own effort, strength and intelligence has made me rich, let me divide for you some of my wealth just to show you how tough and successful I have become!!!”.

This is where humility comes in, and so one needs to go before The LORD with respect, reverence, thankfulness and a very humble heart; a heart of worship & praise to no one else, but The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit. Present your tithe and offering before The LORD, with humility (a humble heart).

The bringing of tithes and offerings in the onset is best illustrated by Abraham when in a very mighty visitation of The LORD, he offered to worship and praise The LORD by bringing a tenth of his wealth (everything/plunder) before The LORD (Melchizedek The King of Salem). This is well expounded in the book of Hebrew 7:1-10 “This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever. Just think how great he was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder! Now the law requires the descendants of Levi who become priests to collect a tenth from the people—that is, from their fellow Israelites—even though they also are descended from Abraham.  This man, however, did not trace his descent from Levi, yet he collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises.  And without doubt the lesser is blessed by the greater. In the one case, the tenth is collected by people who die; but in the other case, by him who is declared to be living. One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor.”

The LORD goes further to clarify to the Church on the tithes and offerings while having a very mighty conversation with the Israelites (The Church) through His servant Malachi in the book of Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.” 

Meaning, let the people bring an acceptable tithe before The LORD; a tithe and an offering that is brought before The LORD wholeheartedly, with a heart that has embraced Repentance of Sins, so that such tithes and offerings be not contaminated with yeast (sin). It also means that when The LORD has blessed you with harvests, income, wealth etc., then one should faithfully go before The LORD with their tithes and offerings so that the poor, the orphans, the widows, the sick, the helpless etc. that are in the house of The LORD can be taken care of.

It is very very important to note that the tithes and the offerings are not meant to enrich the pastors, the bishops, the clergy etc. that serve at the altar of The LORD. The pastors, the bishops, the clergy etc. should serve The LORD with humility and once their essential needs (if need be, from the tithes and the offerings) are catered for, then that’s okay: The basic needs and the basic sustenance, for personal essentials.

No purchasing of private jets for pastors!!! No purchasing of the latest and most expensive golden wrist watches for the pastors!!! No purchasing of the most spacious and luxurious mansions for the pastors!!! No financing the pastors’ and their wives’ holiday and shopping trips overseas, while the flock; the fatherless, the motherless and the widows go hungry and have no one to feed them!!! NOT WITH THE MONEY BROUGHT BEFORE THE ALTAR OF THE LORD AS TITHES AND OFFERINGS!

The clarion call (message/preaching) at the altar of The LORD should be about (centered on): “Prepare the way in absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ; The Messiah is imminently coming to pick His bride!!!”

What The LORD Jesus Christ summarized as follows: ‘“From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”’ (Mathew 4:17).

It is also important to note that the Levites were set aside as a priesthood (a house of priests), they had no inheritance (their inheritance was The LORD; and their sustenance was from the tithes & offerings brought before The LORD, by the other houses of Israel: The Congregation). Meaning, those who have been set aside as servants of God (The True and Genuine Servants of God, get their basic sustenance & maintenance from The LORD, including--if need be, through tithes & offerings brought to the house of The LORD by the congregation---by the faithful sons and daughters of The LORD, whether in a Church building or any other platform that The LORD has availed, including online platforms). This is also, if need be--to be used to carry out various ministry tasks, including to cater for various ministry expenses etc.

You will know the True and the Genuine servants of The LORD, as you are led by the Spirit of The LORD, including as to their fruits. ‘“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”’ (Mathew 7: 15-20).

Bringing tithes and offerings to the altar of The LORD is an act of obedience and faithfulness to The LORD, without which is a robbery. This is well expounded by The LORD in the book of Malachi 3:6-15 ‘“I The LORD do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed.  Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says The LORD Almighty. “But you ask, ‘How are we to return? “Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings.  You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says The LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.  I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says The LORD Almighty.  “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says The LORD Almighty. Israel Speaks Arrogantly Against God “You have spoken arrogantly against me,” says The LORD. “Yet you ask, ‘What have we said against you?’ “You have said, ‘It is futile to serve God. What do we gain by carrying out his requirements and going about like mourners before The LORD Almighty?  But now we call the arrogant blessed. Certainly evildoers prosper, and even when they put God to the test, they get away with it.’”

So, it is about obedience and faithfulness to The LORD and that’s why The LORD Jesus Christ declared in the book of Mark 12:41-44 ‘“Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”’

The LORD was in essence stressing the need for obedience and faithfulness.  So, The LORD wants obedience and faithfulness in bringing of tithes and offerings so that He can bless His obedient and faithful Children through the outpour of The Holy Spirit, so that His children can be cleansed, purified, refined, sanctified as they prepare the way for the coming of The LORD. Remember also that in the same way, The LORD promised in the book of Mathew 6:28-34 ‘“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?  So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”’

Bringing tithes and offerings before The LORD is an act of investment in the kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, as is explained in the book of Mathew 6:19-21 ‘“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”’.

This is based on the faithfulness and obedience even as one brings an acceptable (without yeast) tithes and offerings before The LORD; i.e. a tithe and an offering that is without yeast. Meaning that, The LORD requires utmost Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Wisdom and complete Surrender to Him when one is bringing before Him a tithe or an offering. This means that one should be cleansed of their sins even as they go before The LORD with their tithes and offerings.

So, the aspect of investment in the kingdom of God becomes very relevant when it comes to tithes and offerings, when one is also walking on the narrow road which leads to the kingdom of The LORD God Almighty: On this road are them who have embraced absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. This means therefore that, when one is on the broad road that leads to destruction (Hell), they for sure cannot invest in the kingdom of God which is in Heaven.

This should thus serve as a warning to the lukewarm Christians and also should serve as a warning to the false/fake pastors, false/fake apostles, false/fake prophets, false/fake clergy etc., so that they may embrace absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ.

Therefore, let me note at this juncture that any preaching that is centered on calling the flock “who want to be blessed through wealth and other earthly material riches to bring their tithes and offerings, so as to have investments, wealth and richness/riches here on the earth”, while not telling the flock to focus on the Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven and the coming of The Messiah Jesus Christ and the Preparation required therein for entry into The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, is a False preaching from hell, and it is known as the “preaching” of Prosperity Gospel. It (prosperity gospel) is a “gospel” that takes nobody anywhere, except hell.

‘“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”’ (Mathew 7: 15-20).

These preachers of prosperity gospel are the ones The LORD Jesus Christ talked about as we have read in the scripture above. These preachers of prosperity gospel normally have such language as: “Sow a seed if you want to receive your blessing. If you want me to pray so that you be blessed with a luxurious house, a big car, a good husband/wife, then run to my feet with $ 2,000, and if you want me to make a special prayer for you, a prayer that will come with more blessings then you better run here with $ 3,000!!!” etc.

It is very important to note that one cannot bribe The LORD God Almighty to bless them, for He is the creater of everything (He owns all the wealth on earth, in Heaven, and in the entire Universe). What The LORD requires is Obedience, Faithfulness, Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to Him.

If you attend any of such prosperity gospel “preaching” and may be also attending a Church/Preaching (including on social media, you-tube, twitter, facebook, websites, blogspots etc.) where there are ferocious wolves, who instead of building the Kingdom of God are building the kingdom of men/women; then it’s high time you run away from such a place because your tithe and offering is (being) defiled and is full of yeast before The LORD. For you have not been taught (in this case, by the prosperity “preachers”) on the proper Ways and the Requirements of The LORD, including on the essence of proper tithing and offering; that is acceptable before The LORD The God of Heaven.

SHALOM!!!

THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILL ALSO HAVE A SOFTWARE COMPONENT:

The mark of the beast will also have a software component therein (in addition to the hardware component). It will be linked to the ordinary (everyday) items that people use (consume/purchase). The software component will be interlinked and interconnected.

I saw myself moving around, telling people, under the power and the inspiration of The Holy Spirit: “Do not partake of this scheme. Do not take the mark of the beast”.

The above is what I saw in a supernatural Dream (Vision) of The LORD The God of Heaven, on 29th July 2022.

SHALOM!!!

Revelation 13: 16-17 ‘“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”’

Revelation 14: 9-11 ‘“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”’

RISE OF MUGGERS IN NAIROBI, KENYA:

In an unrelated supernatural Dream (Vision) of The LORD The God of Heaven, on 28th July 2022, The LORD showed me an upcoming rise of muggers in Nairobi, Kenya. I was shown that the muggers can even remove phones from people’s pockets and can even remove bags (carrying things like laptops) from people’s back shoulders.

I was then shown security risk level (alert) increased for (in) Nairobi. I saw international guests (tourists etc.) being forewarned that they would rather take a taxi than walk on the streets of Nairobi, Kenya.

The Vision of The LORD then ended.

SHALOM!!!

REPENTANCE PRAYER:

Precious Jesus,

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I Repent and turn away from all Sin

Please cover me with your Precious Blood,

and establish your Word in my life,

that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness

and write my name in your Book of Life

and Baptize me with the Power of The Holy Spirit

in The Mighty Name of Jesus Christ

AMEN.

 

Your Brother in Christ Jesus, and a Shepherd of The LORD,

HOW TO OVERCOME A LIFESTYLE OF SIN!!!

This moment in time, The LORD is going to help us to tackle a very critical Question or Dilemma that many People all over the Earth are faced with: “How Can I overcome this Lifestyle of Sin, I try to but I can’t stop this Lifestyle of Sin?”

Some of the sins people are faced with are: Masturbation; Committing Adultery, Fornication, Smoking Cigarettes, Addiction to drugs (drug abuse: cocaine, heroine, marijuana etc), Alcoholism, Hatred, Unforgiveness, Envy, Hypocrisy, Outbursts of Anger, Homosexuality, Lesbianism, Exam cheating, Backsliding, Stealing, Witchcraft, Pornography, Formation of ties with “spiritual wives” and “spiritual husbands”, Idolatry, Kneeling down/before & worship of statues of “Mary” and other “saints” E.T.C. 

The following are also sins: Murder, Abortion, Gossip, Slander E.T.C.

So, The LORD is going to help us understand this very very very critical and fundamental issue that essentially is at the core of the destiny of mankind i.e., whether one spends one’s eternity in Heaven (The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty) or in Hell.

It is very important to note that we are personally responsible for the sins we commit; we cannot blame anybody else, including the devil (satan) for our sins. This is because we have the freewill to choose which path and choices to make.

Mankind started a lifestyle of sin at the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve committed sin by eating the forbidden fruit. This is well expounded in the book of Genesis 3:1-19 which states as follows: ‘“Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals The LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of The LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from The LORD God among the trees of the garden. But The LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” Then The LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” So The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”’

Therefore, this brings us to the definition of the word: Sin. Sin as we have just read in Genesis 3:1-19 is an act of disobedience to God’s Commandment (s) and Direction: The Ways and the Requirements of The LORD. So, any action, thinking or plan that goes against the commandments and direction of The LORD God Almighty; The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is: SIN.

1-Everybody is singularly responsible for the sins they commit, no one can blame their neighbour, colleagues or the devil (satan) for the sins they commit.

This is because The LORD God Almighty has given mankind choices to make and through this, He has also given us which direction to take and the commandments to follow. Therefore, no one can turn and start saying: “You know what, the woman (neighbour) you put here with me, she gave me some fruit (sin) from the tree and I ate it (committed the sin)” OR no one can turn around and start saying: “The serpent (the devil/satan) deceived me and I ate (sinned)”. The LORD did not thus tell the man and the woman that: “It's alright, I have now realized that you are not responsible for this sin that you committed, I will look for someone else to hold liable for this sin you committed!!!”. On the contrary, The LORD rebuked everyone who had sinned and held each one individually responsible for the sins they committed.

2-Committing sin has got consequences. Anybody who commits sin is cast away from the presence of The LORD and is thrown out to be Punished in Pain, Suffering and Darkness.

The glory of The LORD covers those who are Pure in heart and are walking in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. But those who go astray and defile themselves by sinning can now no longer be covered by the glory of The LORD; they are thus left exposed and naked. This is well expounded in the book of Genesis 3:10-11 ‘“He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”’

Punishment, pain and darkness is a consequence of committing sin and this is also well expounded in the book of Genesis 3:14-19 which we had read earlier, where the man, the woman and the serpent (satan) had to bear the consequence of committing sin.

King David knew that the consequence of sin means being cast away from the presence of The LORD, that’s why after he sinned with Uriah’s wife by committing adultery with her, he went before The LORD in mourning and wailing, once the prophet of The LORD Nathan had rebuked him for the sin he had committed. David cried, mourned and wailed before The LORD saying: “Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing Spirit, to sustain me.” (Psalm 51:11-12).

3-Committing sin leads to one’s name being blotted (removed) out of the Book of life; and so being no longer eligible to enter God’s Kingdom in Heaven.

This is well expounded in the book of Exodus 32:31-34 ‘“So Moses went back to The LORD and said, “Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves gods of gold. But now, please forgive their sin—but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.” The LORD replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you. However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.”’

4-Committing Sin brings about a curse on someone’s life.

This curse goes even from one generation to another. This is well expounded in the book of Exodus 34:5-7 ‘“Then The LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, The LORD. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, The LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.”’

5-Those who are committing sin are slaves of and to sin.

Sin is their Master and they are held in bondage by being enslaved by sin, whose patron is satan (the devil). That’s why The LORD warned Cain in the book of Genesis 4:6-7 ‘“Then The LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”’

6-Committing sin leads to destruction and perishing.

Anybody who is in sin is on a path to destruction and perish, because The LORD God Almighty is a Holy God and He hates sin and destroys all that is evil. That’s why The LORD states it as follows in the book of Genesis 6:11-13 which states as follows: ‘“Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.”’

It is very important to note that, as a result of sin, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, as expounded in the book of Genesis 19:24-25 which states as follows: ‘“Then The LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from The LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land.”’

In the same note, all that is evil and unclean will not enter the kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, they will in turn will not have their names written in the book of life OR their names will be blotted out, and so they will be cast out into the outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth forever and ever in Hell and the Lake of Fire forever and ever. This is well expounded in the book of Revelation 20:14-15 which states as follows: ‘“Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”’

7-It is very important to note that ALL have Sinned and Fallen short of the glory of The LORD God Almighty, and thus requires to be Redeemed and Restored back to The LORD God Almighty.

Because sin must be punished, through pain and suffering, that’s why The LORD God Almighty sent His Only Begotten Son The LORD Jesus Christ to Pay The Ultimate Price for the sins of mankind by going through pain, suffering and darkness so that mankind can now be Redeemed and Restored when they accept the Sin offering given by The LORD God Almighty: The Holy, Spotless and Blameless Lamb of God Almighty; The LORD Jesus Christ The Messiah/The Saviour.

Since The LORD Jesus Christ was sent to the earth by The LORD God Almighty as a Sacrifice to Atone for the sins of mankind, Isaiah foresaw this and described it very eloquently under the inspiration of The Holy Spirit in the Book of Isaiah 53:2-12 which states as follows: ‘“He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray,each of us has turned to our own way; and The LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was The LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though The LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of The LORD will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”’

So, all those that want (desire) to be Redeemed and Restored back to The LORD God Almighty must accept the sin offering of The LORD God Almighty: The LORD Jesus Christ. This is well summarized in the book of John 3:16-21 which states as follows: ‘“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”’

-Therefore, in summary, we can only Overcome a Lifestyle of Sin by Surrendering Completely our Life to The LORD Jesus Christ and accepting the Blood offering that He shed at the Cross of Calvary, so that we can be Washed and Covered by the Precious Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ. Thereby asking The LORD to Baptize us and anoint us with the power of The Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us, help us, counsel us and to lead us. This is a journey we cannot walk in alone, because this Road (Path) is very Narrow and we require a Helper, a Guide, a Comforter and a Counselor: The Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh, in Hebrew).

Since The LORD has given mankind freewill to “Choose yee this day whom you shall serve”, The LORD will help us, but as a benchmark on this journey of walking on the narrow road as we overcome a lifestyle of sin we must embrace absolute Repentance for the forgiveness of our sins, and thereby walking & living in Righteousness, Holiness, Wisdom, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. This means coming out of a lifestyle of sin and may also include letting go of even some friends, colleagues and relatives who may be pulling us into the broad road (path) that leads to destruction and perishing. This at times may mean standing alone and walking alone under the inspiration of The LORD, who will keep you company through the baptism and the anointing of The Holy Spirit. You will thus at times, appear lonely (to the outside), but you won't be alone; for The LORD will be with you as your Companion, and as your Best Friend.

This means coming out of the lure of the lifestyles that inadvertently leads to sin e.g. If wearing of miniskirts (ladies) and sagging trousers (men) exposing your undergarment normally leads you to committing sexual immorality, then this is the moment to stop wearing them and discard them. Infact, any God-fearing person should dress in the fear of The LORD, and wearing of miniskirts and sagging trousers exposing your undergarments does not portend any fear of The LORD, because it leads to people lusting after you and in essence committing sexual immorality with you, either physically or imaginarily or both. There is currently a debate in some parts of the World, with people petitioning to be allowed to walk while totally naked in broad day light; they no longer want to put any inch of clothing on them: what an abomination!!! How low mankind has fallen!!!

-Come out of lifestyle of going to discos and bars because there lies the evil spirit of drunkenness, foul language and sexual immorality. In most countries of the earth, most people are always looking forward to Friday nights and Saturdays in what they call “Member’s Day”, a time when people drink themselves “silly”, commit all kinds of sexual immorality, smoke all kinds of drugs. I urge you and beseech you to Run and Run away from such lifestyle, so as to escape the net of Sin Bondage whose Chain-Master is satan (the devil). Don’t allow him to chain you any more in this his very wide (broad) net of his.

-Come out of a lifestyle of watching pornography, soap operas, Hollywood movies; Nollywood (Nigerian) movies, Bollywood (Indian) movies, because these have in them elements of Sexual Immorality (Including Adultery, Fornication), Anger, Slander, Gossip, Idolatry, Unforgivenness, Murder, Violence, blasphemy of The LORD E.T.C. When you watch these, evil spirits of these Sins literally Pop-Out of the screen into your Soul and they lure you, torment you and keep you in bondage of such Sins.

-Come out of a lifestyle of masturbation and other sexual immorality e.g., lust, fornication, committing adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism etc. and also other sins committed in the body. For you will now know that your body is the Temple of The LORD (The Temple of The Holy Spirit). So, use your body, mind, soul, spirit and heart to Honour, Glorify, Praise and Worship The LORD.

When one is in a Lifestyle of Sin, then they literally allow all kinds and types of demons to enter them, and to take reign of their soul, spirit, mind, heart and body. Where there is no sin (The sins having been washed away by The Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ and one is now covered and protected by The Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ), there is no longer the bondage of demons; for One has now been set free by The LORD Jesus Christ.

-Fasting is a very very important tool to empty and “kill” the flesh and build the Spirit. You need to Fast occasionally, so that the desire to gratify the sinful desires of the flesh stops and so you can now aim at gratifying the desires of the Spirit, which include amongst others: meditating before The LORD, praising and worshiping The LORD etc. That now you be able to bear the fruits of The Holy Spirit, and be fruitful for The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty. All this is summarized very Powerfully in the Book of Galatians 5: 22-26 which states as follows: ‘“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.”’

-Read The Bible as often as you can, even daily, so that you know The Word of The LORD as regards His Righteousness, Holiness, Wisdom and Truth; as pertains to the Ways and The Requirement of The LORD. How will one know how to walk in Righteousness and Holiness unless they spend time reading the word of God? Remember, The LORD says in the Bible: “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. So, this knowledge can only be gotten by reading the word of God in the Bible, and as you do this Pray to The LORD to anoint you with The Holy Spirit, so that The Holy Spirit may reveal to you the understanding of what is written in the Bible.

Sin leads to people being destroyed and perish because anyone who is evil and unclean before The LORD due to sin cannot enter the Kingdom of God in Heaven, but will perish in Hell. To help you come out of a lifestyle of Sin, open your Bible and read it every time temptation to Sin comes over you, and also Pray in The Mighty Name and Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ.

Remember also that there is no Big Sin and Small Sin, all are Sin and must be Repented of and cleansed of. Remember The LORD Jesus Christ Himself said that anyone who breaks any one of the commandments is guilty of breaking them all.

Pray as often as you can every day. To avoid falling into the temptation of sin, one must pray and put on the full armour of God as stated in the book of Ephesians 6:10-18 ‘“Finally, be strong in The LORD and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all The LORD’s people.”’

To come out of a lifestyle of sin and to set on a new journey on the narrow road that leads to eternal life in The Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven, you need to embrace absolute Repentance. To Repent is to turn away from sin by taking full responsibility of the sins committed, being remorseful for the sins committed and going before The LORD with sincerity in your heart and praying and pleading with The LORD to have mercy on you and to forgive you of the sins. In so doing, we need to Repent also of Generational sins and curses; we need to Repent of all the sins we have committed from the time we were born till today, by saying something that goes like this: “I Repent of all the sins from the moment I was born until now!!!, Including Generational sins and curses along my family lineage”. Thereafter, let’s sin no more. Let’s now not deliberately sin because in so doing we are returning The LORD Jesus Christ back to the Cross to be Crucified Again!

Let’s Repent as often as we can every day and plead the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ over our life, which include our body, soul, spirit, mind and heart, because as one brother puts it: “We are Sinning Machines”, and thus we require to Repent as many times as possible every day. Remember, we cannot over-Repent and so absolute Repentance is a sure way of overcoming a lifestyle of sin and staying on the narrow path that leads to eternal life: The Path of Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ.

Those who are slaves of sin and are in bondage of sin have been chained by the devil into the sin. Such people always say: ‘“However much I try to come out of this sin and to stop it, I cannot!!!”’. But today I have got news for you, if you are in a sin (s) that leads to you making such a statement, because him/her whom The LORD Jesus Christ sets free will be free indeed, Run!!! and Run!!! and Run!!! and fall at the feet of The LORD Jesus Christ on your knees and Pray to The LORD Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive you your sins and to baptize you with the power of The Holy Spirit. He is right there beside you. Then don’t go back again to the broad road of sin characterized by addiction to sin and gratifying the desires of the flesh, instead of the Spirit. God will help through The Holy Spirit, to stay true to your calling as a purified and a sanctified faithful son or daughter of The LORD.

Walk in absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. Fast and fast as often as possible; maybe ones or twice a week or more as led by The Holy Spirit. It can either be a dry fast, a water-only fast, a juice-only fast or Daniel’s fasting etc. By undertaking this fasting, your spirit will be built and your flesh emptied, tamed and “killed”. Fasting and Prayer leads to one being humbled and being filled with the anointing of The Holy Spirit, since the baggage of a flesh craving for desires of sins to be satisfied has been emptied and tamed, by The LORD. Not by might nor by power, but by The Spirit of The LORD.

A Holy and a True Fasting is very well expounded by The Prophet of The LORD, Isaiah under the inspiration of The Holy Spirit in the book of Isaiah 58 which states as follows: ““Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’ “Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers. Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to The LORD? “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of The LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and The LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and The LORD’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in The LORD, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” For the mouth of The LORD has spoken.””

Remember also that some Deliverance and Healing only come through Prayer and Fasting as said by The LORD Jesus Christ Himself in the book of Mathew 17:21 which states as follows: “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Everything we have discussed today, and what actually everything else eventually comes around to is summarized as: REPENT or PERISH i.e. It's Heaven (For those who embrace absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ) OR Hell (For those who do not embrace Repentance, since they eventually perish because there sins have not been washed away and they do not have the Blood covering of The LORD Jesus Christ upon them, offered as a sacrifice for sins--------Remember nothing impure, unclean and sinful enters the Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven).

So, the question everybody reading this should be asking themselves as we conclude is: “Ever since I was born and/or born-again, have I really embraced absolute Repentance and living in Righteousness, Holiness, Truth, Wisdom and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ, so as to be able to overcome the Lifestyle of Sin?”

SHALOM!!!

NOTE: I first posted the above Message (Teaching) on 10th May 2016. It remains relevant today, in the past and forever more. Glory and Honour be to The LORD.

2nd Peter: 1-12 ‘“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.”’

(‘“For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.”’).

REPENTANCE PRAYER:

Precious Jesus,

I acknowledge today that you are LORD and Savior of all mankind,

and today I have recognized my shortfall,

I Repent and turn away from all Sin

Please cover me with your Precious Blood,

and establish your Word in my life,

that I may be found in Righteousness and Holiness

and write my name in your Book of Life

and Baptize me with the Power of The Holy Spirit

in The Mighty Name of Jesus Christ

AMEN.

 

Your Brother in Christ Jesus, and a Shepherd of The LORD,
