I’m a Christian or am I?


 

Christianity is not a religion

The followers of Jesus were first called “Christian” in Antioch

Acts 11:26 KJV
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

literally means, “belonging to the party of Christ” or a “follower of christ”

Jesus is our perfect examples. A genuine christian shares the same gene and character with Jesus. Any character (fornication, adultery, stealing, corruption, etc) that can’t be found In Jesus is not permitted in you.

Also, Christianity is not a religion neither a philosophy; it does not belongs to any organization. It’s the release of the life of God into human vessels. It’s the manifestation of God’s power in man.

What the 3 proofs of a genuine believer

(1). The proof of love
(2). The proof of results
(3). The proof of faith

The proof of love – There is nothing mystical about love. Simply put love as the combination of the word that we received, believe and obey.

John 14:21 KJV
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Obedience is the cardinal mark of love. The devil can preach. It’s not about preaching it; it’s about doing it. Your being a walking bible who can reel off 100 memory verses per second isn’t a proof that the word of God has gained entrance into you.

Don’t receive God’s word in your head; receive it into your heart because your heart is the good ground (There is no amount of watering that would allow the word in your head or under your pillow to produce fruits).

 How can I love God?

Carry a heart for Christ – How can you say that you love someone if you don’t know His interest. God’s heartbeat is the life of the unsaved/lost. Until you allow this to become your priority on earth don’t expect to become a true believer.

John 15:16 KJV
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

There is nothing theoretical about serving God. Serving God in truth and in deed requires practical. Until you demonstrate the commandments of the scripture results are farfetched.

James 1:22-25 KJV
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

(2). The force of results – Christianity with nothing to show is a sign of disobedience and God is ever ready to revenge all disobedience.

2 Corinthians 10:5-6 KJV
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Sickness, poverty, sweat, stagnation, frustration, darkness and mountains are all in the list of disobedience.

This is the reason many – though born again christian – are still groveling in poverty. They experience the same buffetings and intimidations that the world experience from the wicked one.

Listen to this: irrespective of your age, title, position and the numbers of years that you have spent in church if you don’t start taking responsibilities you will die as liabilities and God won’t come for your rescue.

Collect the blessings from your ‘parents’ by being responsible!

The force of faith – faith is what distinguishes between a winning and losing Christian.

If you love God you will trust Him. When God saw this dogged determination in these three Hebrew guys His heartbeat was like “I must save my children” Nothing works without faith.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Simply put faith as seeing the invincible and believing the impossible.

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

Move with the cloud, everybody is moving. Give up the impossibility syndrome.

Matthew 19:26 KJV
But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Greater than Jonas is here. Greater than John the Baptist is here.
John 14:12 KJV
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Prayer


A prayer house is a power house and a power house is a prayer house

A prayer house is a power house; a power house is a prayer house. A growing church is a praying church and a praying church is a growing church.

Whatever we pray for others answers back to us. Prayer is a spiritual seed that yield open rewards. Prayer is a sure way to seek lord. Seeking that lord is the pathway to all round blessings.

“The young lion do lack and suffer hunger but that seek the lord shall never want any good thing.” – Psalm.34:10.

Hannah, at 84, served God with prayer and fasting in the temple night and day (And she was a widow of about four score and four years who departed not from the temple but served God with fastings and prayers night and day – Lk.2:37 ).

‘Non-self-centered’ prayer (a prayer on behalf of the heathen, lost, unsaved, discouraged, country, etc) is one of the cheapest ways to serve the lord. The platform of service is the platform of sacrifice. It takes a sacrificial approach to collect anything from God.

Wait a minute: If Jesus Christ the Jesus Christ (who was not given the Holy Spirit by measure) could subjected himself to this principle before he could be enthroned, then you and I have no choice than to follow the same principle (You can’t be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow).

Philippians 2:6-10 KJV

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Knowledge is priceless. It's the key to freedom. It

This is a mystery that works. It works like fire. David was a servant (he was in charged of his father’s sheep) before he killed Goliath and latter became a king. Joseph served before he became a prime minister. The alter of sacrifice is the alter of sworn blessings (this alter connects us to ‘Abrahamic‘ covenant of greatness through our lord Jesus Christ).

Galatians 3:14 KJV

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Therefore brethren, take responsibility! Be on the go for Christ, follow His instructions. This is the surest way to secure a destiny for yourself and the upcoming generations.

Get involved, pray for the growth and expansion of your church and God’s kingdom. Intercede on behalf of the heathens, discouraged believers; stand in gap for your nation and intercede on behalf of the anointed men of God. These are the examples of the kind of prayer that attracts God’s attention.

Engage! Be part of this prayer revolution. It’s my prayer that every of your secret tears will engenders open rewards (Mat.6:6).

The Results


The hallmark of obedience
Enter a caption

Results are the capital proofs of our genuine covenant walk with God. Christianity without results is a mockery. If the proofs of serving God have not become realities in your life mockers will ask where is your God?

It’s  good to serve God, it’s better to serve God and see the results. Results will inspire you to serve God the more. It’s good to know about God, but it’s better to practice about what you know about God. It’s the practical steps that you take concerning the instructions of God that produce practical results. Nothing works in theory. It’s the implementation of the word of God that cause things to happen in life(Deu.28:1-3). Results are the authentic evidence of our subscription  to scriptural commandments.

Christianity become too cheap to accept when there are results to show.

The cardinal proof of obedience

The battle field of life

Life is a battlefield. Life is a contest between good and evil, light and darkness, breakthrough and breakdown, sweet and sweat, abundance and hunger. Since the fell of the fallen man, there have been two forces governing the earth – God and devil – one is powerful than the other. God created lucifer. The creature can’t be powerful than the creator. You belong to one. There is no middle way. Ever since the fell of the wicked, he has been on the  mission to upturn all the good things that God created.

And God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Gen.6:5

So, man has been thinking evil since the fell of the devil. You see, this is why will have to renew your mind for the positives. Like i said in my previous post “you are what you think.” Prov.18:21

Life is where we fight the devil for our results (birthrights) through the instrumentality of faith. You will disappoint Jesus if you remain poor.

Understand this: the gospel of Jesus has zero tolerance for poverty.

“The spirit of the lord is upon, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight of the blind, to set liberty them that are bruised.” Lk.4:18

The spirit of God was upon Jesus to preach the gospel first to the poor. There is no poverty where you came from -if you are a true representative of heaven you are not meant to be poor. This is why you must put up a fight by fighting the good fight of faith. “The scripture says fight the good fight of faith” 1.Tim.6:12

 

Be Hungry for God

Whatsoever you hunger for will define you. God is not cheap. You must be responsible to see Him. In this generation God have nothing to do with irresponsible Christians. There is principality in every locality. All men must be thirsty for God no matter where you live on the planet.

O God, thou art my God; early will i seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.” PS.63:1

The hotter our level of love the hotter we are in life. Pulling others out of fire is our only bail out in these perilous times. When you connect to the right source(God),you will be releasing blessings upon yourself and others. When you connect to the wrong source of life (devil),you will be releasing curses and magics upon yourself and others.

The cardinal proof of obedience

If this post has blessed you and a transformation has taken place. Let us have your say so that your miracle can be perfected and don’t think of it before you share this message with others. Testimony shared are victory sustained.

The right words


How forcible are right words

How forcible are right words but what does your arguing reprove?” Job.6:25

In this kingdom, there is no room for arguments. There is no room for disputing. Someone may ask How do I approach God? Approach God without complains. God hates fault finders. God hates grumblers.

“Neither  murmur ye  as some of  them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” 1.Cor.10:10

Approach God with obedience. In most cases what God will tell you to do might look too simple or stupid. Even if it seems too simple or stupid, do it.

“And His mother said unto the servant whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.” Jn.2:5

When they needed wine, He told them to bring water, He used the launch of a lad to feed multitudes.

“There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes, but what are they among many.” Jn.6:9

Obedience is the master key to all the blessings of God.

Take Peter as a case study, Peter struggled with his business all the night and achieved no result. Until Peter obeyed God’s instruction, Peter’s net breaking harvest was not in view.

“And Simon answering said unto Him, master; we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing……And when they had this done(obedience), they in closed a great multitudes of fishes; and their net break.” (Lk.5:5-6)

Approach God with thanksgiving. Come to the presence of God with praises on your lips.  Be happy. If you are not joyful you will be fretful. Approach God with fasting and prayer. Fasting is not an advice neither an admonition. Fasting is a commandment.

When ye fast” Mat.6:9. 

There are some mountains that would not be made plain until you fast.

“Howbeith this kind goeth not but by prayer and fasting.” Mat.17:31

Don’t ever come to God with murmurings. Those who murmured in the wilderness were all consumed by the wicked. Murmurers are programmed for destruction.

“Do all things without murmurings and disputing.” Phi.2:14.

“Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” 1.Cor.10:10

 

Approach God with faith. Faith is our purchasing power in the miraculous market. Life cannot be beautiful more than your faith’s level.

The elements of faith demands that you must cast down all mind debris, idiosyncrasies and negative and cultural  orientation. They are by-products of the wicked. It requires that you speak inline with what you believe with bold declaration. For instance, “I can never be poor” “I can never be sicked” etc.

Hmmm! Right words are right words. When God was making the covenant of greatness with Abraham, He did not expect him to actually see all his seeds(children) with his naked eyes, God must be speaking of another kind of eyes, the imaginative faculty. If you can see it you can have it. A future that you can’t picture don’t expect to be featured in it. Whatever that you can see(picture) from Genesis to Revelation can be yours. Your mind can either break you or make you. Picture the positive and speaks the positive. You are what you say.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21.

You are what you think.

“As he thinketh in his heart, so he is.” Prov.23:7

Once upon a time, there was an ugly situation on the earth. Darkness reigned that God needed a change of situation. What was God’s approach? He called out light. Light emitted darkness. Light swallowed up darkness. It dispelled the dark area of the planet.  If God could use this approach to turn the negative tide around, then you and I have no choice than follow the same step.

 

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep…..and God said, let there by light: and there was light.” Gen.1:3-4

Everybody gets what they see. Life answers to seeing. You can’t see hunger today and wake to see a life of abundance. This is divine setting. God cannot break this principle because of you.

“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever.” Gen.13:15

Right words are right words. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Never waste your time with an argumentator.

 

 

Life is a choice


 

Life is a choice

My father can take care of me – I’m not talking about my biological father. I mean my father in heaven. Thank God, I have not lost my son ship ties with my father.

My father is God, I am god. John.10:35. My father is rich, I can’t be poor. My father is healthy and He is the healer, I can’t be sick.

My daddy is the wiser than the wisest, smarter than the smartest, richer than the richest. Whatsoever that can’t be found in Jesus, can’t be found me.

I shared Jesus’ gene. I possess the character of Jesus. Failure is alien to Jesus, as well as sickness, poverty, intimidations, shame, reproach, begging, and borrowing. Darkness is alien to my kind.

 

I declared this for myself. Declare yours and be free from the shackles of the enemy.

 

 

Breaking New Ground.


Those that win souls are stars

There is a groundbreaking opportunity for us on the platform of demonstrating our love for Christ. There is not mystical in love. Love is just the word we hear, receive and obey.

 

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my father: i will love him and manifest myself unto him.”Jn.14:21.

 

There is no record breaker in his comfort arena. If you are the one that doesn’t want to die as a liability, it’s better that you begin to take responsibility.

 

Breaking records demand going extra miles, stretching forth, discipline. Discipline is the key word. Discipline doesn’t mean how comfortable or convenient a task is. It means to give what it demands to complete a task.

 

Those who are stars are those who have bore the scars. All record breakers paid a price. Likewise in God’s kingdom, nothing is for free. Hear this truth, there is nothing valuable that is for free. Nothing in this kingdom that is free.

 

Those who approach God casually will die as casualties. Lift your hands which hanged down, straighten your feeble knees.

 

The good news is that Our God is not a task master, He is a paymaster. All commandments of God are meant for our benefits. Deu.28:1-3. Your obedience does not add anything  to God or remove from God, it expands all areas of your life, it enlarges your coast.

 

God will not tell anybody thank you for obeying Him, He will rather bless us in return.

 

God has integrity. He knows that His integrity is at stake if you obey Him and He didn’t bless you. The scripture can’t be broken… Jn.10:35. Even God Himself can’t break it.

 

Therefore, don’t be panic of anything. Just do what he tell you to do. “And His mother said unto His servant whatsoever He tells you to do, do it. Jn.2:5 – even it is foolish thing – just do it.

 

 

 

 

Soul Hunter


He that win soul is wise

God has no problem in blessing us. He created the universe – out of nothing – and everything inside of it.

 

God is God. He doesn’t change. Until He sees our investments Into His kingdom, the blessings are out of view. Our God is a God of order. He basically operates by carrying out order.

 

For instance, until we become an addicted thiter, our financial enthronement is farfetched.

 

“But thou shalt remember the lord thy God. For it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this days” – Deu.8:18

 

The covenant platform of GIVING and RECEIVING is our only bailout in this era of  economic holocaust. If you are not an addicted giver, you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activities.

 

He is more faithful than you and I. DON’T BLAME GOD, blame yourself. DON’T QUESTION GOD, question yourself.

 

It is good to know about God, it is better to practice about God. Wisdom is applied knowledge. Wisdom is to know the right thing to do from the word of God and do it.

 

The word that enters us will not move an ant. It’s the word that we enter that cause things to happen. Until you and I dive into the word of God by doing what it has instructed, we should not expect the blessings.

 

Listen to this: only those that are wise will scale heights in our generation. Servitude is a sign of foolishness. The wise are made kings.

 

According to the scripture, he that winneth soul is wise. In other word, he that winneth not soul is foolish. This sound unfair, but that is what the scripture says.
