Delusion

​Well, that’s the word on my mind. 

It’s really cool to see that some churches  are beginning to teach about new creation realities. Our reality. The fact that the finished works of Christ has declared us righteous, justified and at peace with God. The fact that the  believer is sanctified. The believer is one with God. The very essence of God is in the believer, meaning that the believer is the habitation of God. 

Just read the epistles and see these realities for yourself. 

Before, the problem was that people were teaching works. How that you need to do certain things to receive the grace of God for your everyday life or for you to “make heaven”. So we begin to wonder why it was called “grace” in the first place if we have to earn it. 

And it doesn’t mean that soo many churches still don’t preach works and have put up mosaic law-like ordinances ignorantly. There’s still a lot of labour in the word and prayer to do with regards to this. 

However, is it now a crime that we are teaching new creation realities in church ni? 

I mean, things we should take responsibility for, we now account to the finished works of Christ. 

I mean Christ died to save sinners. That’s all. The blood of Jesus was shed for the atonement of sins, reconciling people back to God. Nothing else. 

But now as far as we are concerned, Christ died to give us money. Christ died to give us A-grades in school. Now have we become comedians. 

Just think about this. Anything Christ finished on the cross is perfect and perpetually expressed in the believer. If it’s not a constant in your life, Christ did not die for it. For example, our righteousness is perpetual. The Holy Spirit is always in us. He never leaves. We are perpetually sons of God. We did nothing to gain it or sustain it. 

But if you don’t read, you won’t pass your exams. If you don’t work, you will be financially poor. You need to attain to these things. 

That means Christ did not die for them. 

No more delusions. Read your Bible.

Tuesday Morning thoughts 

​Great day it is already. 

On my mind this morning…

I have been in the church setting long enough to know that people are not the same. We’ve all got our excesses. We all make mistakes. As far as I’m concerned, you can’t relate with people that long and not see their faults, their imperfections. 

And truth is, those faults are what you defined them to be, at least in some ways. There are things we personally define as wrong based on our opinions about them. We, in many ways, create the standard. So, I believe that there are things that are generally regarded as unacceptable and there are things we personally regard as such based on our personalities. 

Example is, if you don’t like long talks, then anyone that engages you in long conversations talks too much! You determined that. Someone else is perfectly alright with that. 

If you believe in being calm in your disposition about what you seem to believe in and someone else is loud about what he perceives to be right, you conclude he is a fanatic. Perhaps, an extremist! 

People are just not the same. 

I feel this is something to think on. 

We are to walk in love as our absolute. Accommodate

However, if wrong is what is really demonstrated by the people around us, then we must learn to accommodate them, and in love, help them to be better people. 

This can always be done. 

However, the mistake certain church folks make is in adopting methods contrary to God’s perspective (which is the only perspective) on expressing love. 

God does not find faults. It’s his nature. 

James 1:5

Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God, the One giving generously to all and not finding fault, and it will be given to him.

We find faults. We are more aware of people’s inadequacies than the possibilities they carry deep inside. 

We must come to learn that God has no intention to condemn anyone. As those who partner to do the works of Christ on earth, we also don’t point out faults. 

We see possibilities because people can actually be better.  It’s our job to magnify the possibilities. This is very important. 

God declared the believer righteous, not because he’s got everything right morally. But as far as God is concerned, the believer is His righteousness. It’s what He sees. Righteousness! Not faults! 

2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.



John 3:17 KJV

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (Msg)  Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore.

Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!

Blessed day.

Spirit led

​It’s the beginning of a blessed week.

There’s always something to be thankful for. In fact, there is always a lot to be thankful for;

The gift of people, friendship, leadership, health and needs met. 

I especially love to stay aware of the relationships in my life. The people given as gifts. Mentors, the church family, friends again and again. 

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Here are some of the things I learnt in the past few days in church and everywhere else. 

We are not without guidance.
Every believer has the Holy Spirit. 

Ephesians 1:13 KJV

In whom ye also trusted , after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

John 14:16-17 KJV

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.



And we can see from these scriptures that the Holy Spirit stays forever! He does not leave. 

He is not Water that evaporates, Fire that quenches or a Dove that flies away. 

He is a person that stays! 
By reason of this, we are not without guidance. 

The leadings of the Spirit is our inheritance in Christ. 

Romans 8:14 KJV

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

1 John 2:20, 27 KJV

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. [27] But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.



So from now on, we can live life not confused, with much more clarity, because we are now aware that we are led by the Spirit.

Random

I walked through valleys
encountering shadows of death.
Substanceless beings with whom I wrestled
Beating gases and blasts of breath
Unreal beings
On whom time was much wasted.
Recognising what’s reality
Laying hold on knowledge
Won me my battles.

Blast! Shadows creep upon the innate mind
Squeezing and suffocating
the last straw that binds sanity with my
Existence
Freedom lay way inside in the light
that never died.

Our hurts don’t define us
Nor the tears that heat our faces.
The tip of the writers pen
tells the story of his strength.
Perhaps, that’s all there is to who he is.

Revelation of the scars flow
as words are written
Tales of woes ends are brought again
to the surface
As they cloud the sources of vision

Rampant in our minds
These random thoughts
That betray what lies low
Within.

Sann.
