The wild spreading joy!

Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child (Jesus) is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others… As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.” (Luke 2:34-35 NLT)

The words, works and the life of Jesus – a mere 3 years and few months of His ministry had changed the whole world!

Religion had collapsed, kingdom had collapsed, people were willing to die, worst outcasts lives were changed 180 degree for good, unheard thousands of miracles started to happen in His Name and His gospel had become the fire in the bones of countless.

On other side, religious became murderers, so thought pious saints were found to be cults, God’s commandments had been redefined and all were put in severe need of true hope in God that Jesus had revealed!

It’s been more than 2000 years now, the fire in bones of those who believed has only became much greater and wildly spreading, His truth has become much clear, His hope has been realized overwhelmingly and embraced more earnestly, faith is understood, fear is fought, forgiveness is received, families and nations that never thought will serve Him has declared “Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Savior and only Hope. Jesus Christ is indeed the Way, the Life and the Truth!”

In His Name, many are been set free, healed, restored, equipped, appointed and sent to release His joy to every hopeless, depressed, oppressed and possessed!

Jesus, the King of Righteous and Truth reigns!

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God… Luke 15:7

The sprout test

Place these staffs in the Tabernacle in front of the Ark containing the tablets of the Covenant, where I meet with you. Buds will sprout on the staff belonging to the man I choose. Then I will finally put an end to the people’s murmuring and complaining against you.” (Numbers 17:4, 5 NLT)

When God chose a leader to lead, He relives the pressure off the leader to prove his/her authority.

Beware, God do allow a season for others to see the leader is not so perfect. But then, God will move with a mighty power for everyone to realize that it is indeed He who has chosen and appointed that leader to lead them.

For this to happen, the leader has to refrain from all arguments and quarrel; willfully come to a place of humility by submitting him/herself before the Word of God (tablets of the Covenant) and waiting in His presence (Ark, Tabernacle) until God brings the supernatural life and fruitfulness in the authority He gave.

No self promoters survive this sprout test. Let’s place ours under the Word’s check and soak it with His presence until it sprouts!

On that day the Lord exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel, and they revered him throughout his life, as they had revered Moses. Joshua 4:14

His name is Wonderful!

They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.” (Mark 7:37 NLT)

Every minute somewhere, someone is touched by Christ Jesus and receives their miracle!

If we take a moment to look back at our own lives (or others who has Jesus Christ as their Lord), we will testify that He is so wonderful!

When Jesus walked among people 2000 years ago, they were in peak of joy as they had the very Creator in midst of them and testified that ‘nothing is impossible for God!’

Today, if we come out of our own small circle and start working with other needy people by introducing Christ Jesus their Savior to them – the stage has been set to see for ourselves the most wonderful things He will do for them!

This is exciting, is there anything impossible for Him!

…and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him. Mark 7:32

Wherever he went—in villages, cities, or the countryside—they brought the sick out to the marketplaces. They begged him to let the sick touch at least the fringe of his robe, and all who touched him were healed. Mark 6:56

Don’t tune to 99.1 but 100%

The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message, only to have Satan come at once and take it away. (Mark 4:15 NLT)

The result of God’s word in us is all about how we listen to it.

The way we listen determines the way we react to it. The way we react to it tells the way our lives would change, or won’t change.

If we can only believe God’s word that we read or hear – nothing can stop us from being delivered, healed and restored!

Devils toughest job is not after you listen to God’s word, it’s while you listen.

When we are resolved to believe God’s word without any doubt or argument or an after thought – devil can do nothing about it – God’s word just prevailed in your life!

Once you believed, water everyday that seed implanted in you with patience. You will be fruitful!

“So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them.” Luke 8:18

But you, keep going

When they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will preach to them, too. That is why I came.” (Mark 1:37, 38 NLT)

Lord Jesus kept His ministry simple to the point why He came – to preach the good news in every town and villages before He would finish for us on the cross.

Signs & wonders – healing, deliverance and miracles are only the outcome of His preaching and teaching; never in His agenda but always His will!

He set it clear to His disciples that they should never seek the crowd that wants them but go seeking the souls that doesn’t know that they are in need of God. By giving the good news, their eyes will wide open to the truth that sets them free!

There is not one truly free without Christ Jesus. There are billions in the waiting list – waiting for you to come and tell this good news. Let’s go!

So the message about the Lord spread widely and had a powerful effect. Afterward Paul felt compelled by the Spirit to go over to Macedonia and Achaia before going to Jerusalem. “And after that,” he said, “I must go on to Rome!” Acts 19:20-21

Moving into abundance

To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away. (Matthew 25:29 NLT)

Where your heart is, there your treasure is!

Unless we are willing to risk losing we can never invest. Unless we are willing to spend time without any reservation we never learn to get best return.

If our heart is sold out to God, then we will give Him all we have. Whether it’s money, time, energy or thoughts – we’ll give Him out of obedience .

As far God is concern, He is the most generous, He not only rewards us for our generosity but enable us with what all we need to get much more generous – so we can become just like Him – really generous!

It is God Who gives seed to the man to plant. He also gives the bread to eat. Then we know He will give you more seed to plant and make it grow so you will have more to give away. God will give you enough so you can always give to others. 2 Corinthians 9:10-11

Wait, don’t stone me!

But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus 14:13, 14 NLT)

Fear is the worst enemy that walk along us when we are led by God in His mighty power, looking for those moments we would become tired of faith.

Human emotions and intellect are the ones that makes our faith weary and gives access to fear.

When we know we are led by God in a season we should refrain from getting tired of faith, and brace ourselves knowing that faith will remain as a test until the promised thing happens.

On the flip side, a carefully guarded faith will put all human emotions and intellects to become weary. This is exactly how God moved thru’ Moses!

God will defeat our enemies totally when our faith is hated to the point of getting stoned!

What if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us? We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap. The trap is broken, and we are free! Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:2, 7-8
