As a believers of Christ, we all will face days of warfare and days of battle, and just because we believe in God and because we are children of God. Especially if you’re serving God in any form of ways, you will face all kinds of battles and warfare. It could be sicknesses, it could be the devil’s trying to take your life, it could be the devil’s attacking your teams, community, or attacking your church, it could be the devil’s attacking your words, finances, or your family, there can be many different types of warfare.

For example, when we are sick in physical, it also effects our emotions, minds, and soul, which can in turn effects our spirit and mindsets. Therefore it might also be bit blunt to hear God clearly, or the devil might be taking his deceiving schemes that the sicknesses comes from God, blaming God that God gives you sicknesses and making you feel self justified or spiritual. Therefore, we need to know the truths clearly that we are not deceived by the lies of the devil.

These times of warfare are the times we need to be careful about our words, our thinking, and about our hearing God, and recheck our hearing God, because in times of warfare whether its sicknesses, financial problems, church problems, community or teams, Satan work to blind our Spiritual eyes and deaf our Spiritual ears, and these could be the times our hearing God gets blunt, and many times our own desire and opinions may come big in our thoughts.

There can be many different types of warfare. Sometimes we may just need to relax from our works and take some rest, and other times we may need to defend the truths of the Kingdom, and God may want us to defend the truths of the Kingdom, however many times we may need to be quiet, recheck our words, and spend time with God.

In times of warfare and battles, most of the times we will just need to spend time with God, clear our thoughts and made up minds, rest in Him, check our hearts, and spend time with Him, listening to Him and having conversations with Him, to sharpen our hearing God’s voice and our wisdom.

However, even after that, it is still important to be careful with our words, remove distractions, made up minds, and recheck our hearing God, and many times it will be important to be quiet regarding the matters in the days of warfare, unless we are defending the important truths of the Kingdom.

I believe the Lord has been continually giving me a sword and the message is on the importance of knowing the true Apostolic wisdom and revelations, in other words, “Why is the true Apostolic wisdom and revelations so important?” We believe this can slain 1000’s of demons.

If we look at Christianity around the world, people are appointed as pastors, evangelist, or teachers, but why should not anyone who wants to be an Apostle called themselves an Apostle?, that’s an important question. First of all, being an Apostle is more than a title its an identity, that’s the way they were born and the way God created, and most of all because of the importance of Apostolic Wisdom and revelations.

True Apostolic wisdom and revelations are so important because, you can be a church leader but have no wisdom and revelations how you should run and take care of your church, how Spiritual gifts should function, or either loading up many heavy loads upon people, bound by traditionalism, with many unnecessary rituals and legalism. You can be married but have no foundation that you both live your marriage life however you want to live, flirting around and thinking that’s modern or being wide minded, but then it might only be because of the lack of wisdom and revelations. You can also have many children but have no foundational wisdom and revelations in the way you should take care of them and treat them, you can have the gift of healing but have no foundational wisdom and revelations about healing and speaking words of condemnations because of their sicknesses not knowing that God doesn’t give us sicknesses, that can give us wrong perspective about God, making us judge God and His Kingdom, representing God as a bad God. You can also have 10,000 teachers of the word and regular Bible studies, but that cannot lay Apostolic foundation with Apostolic wisdom and revelations into the needed areas.

And without this Apostolic wisdom and revelations, it can bring great damage, to the church, to people, and in many different areas, and to the Kingdom of God. Therefore it is important to know the true Apostolic wisdom and revelations, Proverb says, “Wisdom is supreme, therefore get wisdom”.

And because of this utmost importance of Apostolic wisdom and revelations, it is important that not everyone who want to call themselves an Apostle must call themselves an Apostle.

(Note: The Devil would probably not like this message because he will be bound up in many different ways).

Why choose Wisdom over wealth?

Posted: September 23, 2016 in Kingdom wealth

Pro 8:11 said, “For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her”.

What does this mean, and what is the insight over this revelation that “Wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing we desire could even compare with her? This was written by the riches person on earth, and the wealthiest person on earth, therefore there must be a great reason behind this revelational truth Solomon got.

Meditation is the Key to wisdom:

Therefore if wisdom is that precious, and nothing we desire can compare with her, let’s get a small glimpse on the key to wisdom.

People often said, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, they seems like they have the fear of the Lord, but still lack wisdom. Looking good on the outside and being judgmental is not the fear of the Lord, it is a religious spirit, people often confuse religious spirit with the fear of the Lord, because religious spirit look good but have no love, mercy, compassion, and is judgmental, it is not the fear of the Lord it is self righteousness.

The fear of the Lord is not about being perfect, no one is ever going to be perfect, it is about loving God with all our heart and strength, thinking and meditating on the word of God daily, loving His presence and a desire to do His will.

Psalm 1:1 said that those who meditate on the word of the Lord are like a tree planted by streams of water and that whatever they do prospers. Even the key success reason of Joshua was meditation (Joshua 1), meditating on the word of God day and night, the presence of God dwelling inside his heart with revelations and the word of God, and meditation is also one of the main key to wisdom. And meditating on the word of God and the things of God is our strength as a believers of Jesus Christ.

Meditating on the word means that you think about God and the things of God day and night, in the morning, while cooking, in the bathroom, in our work place, and while sleeping, that will provide insight in our heart with revelations and give us wisdom. Therefore before the success and prosperity comes meditation and wisdom, meditation gives the power to create wealth because it is the key to wisdom. Therefore when Solomon choose wisdom rather than wealth and prosperity, God also grant him wealth and prosperity.

Eccle 4:13 says, “It is better to be a poor but wise youth than an old and foolish king who refuses all advice”. In the same way, it is also better to be a wise servant than to be a stupid king.

Some benefits of wisdom:

Wisdom provide revelations, which is the word of God, and the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edge sword, and it is a weapon for waging war against the enemy, for personal warfare, corporate warfare and even regional warfare.

Other benefits are better relationship with God, Spiritual discernments, favor, success, advancement, power to create wealth and prosperity because Psalm 35:27 says that the Lord delight in the prosperity of His servants, He delight in our prosperity. Wisdom also protect us from different harms that can come against us because wisdom sees the outcome, for problems solving in all aspects of life including marriages, family, in teams, and in works. For making decisions in different situations, wisdom for ruling and leadership, and foundational laying for the Kingdom of God. Therefore, wisdom is way much greater than wealth, and therefore it is important to choose wisdom over wealth.

Solomon knew this far ahead that wisdom is more precious than wealth and that nothing could compare with wisdom.

Wealth of the Kingdom

Posted: September 22, 2016 in Kingdom wealth

The good good Father:

As one song said, our God is a good good Father, He is the best Father, the most generous Father ever. We are imperfect dudes, however, we have so much desire to bless each of our children. But our God is a perfect God, good good God, full of mercy, compassion and love. His desire is that we all have in abundant.

When Jesus said, “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matt 7:11). He doesn’t exclude anyone in that blessings, prosperity, and abundant He was talking about, it is for all mankind, God wants to bless us all as His beloved children. We human beings have a desire to bless our children, God have much more desire to bless us.

The Kingdom of Wealth and Finance:

The Kingdom of God is filled with wealth and finances, let’s say that the whole heaven is filled with money and wealth, it is an unlimited Kingdom of wealth and finances, it has no limit.

We think of life as a human being, sometimes we worried, but the truth is that we are not to be worried, God have in abundant and plenty, more than enough, He has an unlimited resources. If we look at the sky, and see as far as possible, and if they are all filled with finances and wealth, God has much more, God’s wealth and finances are unlimited. If we can count all the sands of the earth, God have much more, because God’s finances and wealth are unlimited.

We are living in the unlimited finances and wealth Kingdom of God.

God doesn’t have a limit:

Sometimes we human beings have a low self image, that makes us unable to receive what our Father have for us, we may feel unworthy to receive them, or we may feel that He has a limit for us, but God doesn’t have a limit for us, we are His precious sons and daughters, deeply loved, cared and concerned. He cared for each of us more than any other thing else on the face of the earth.

These Bible verses tells us how much God wants to bless us and have no limit to bless us –

“A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap”. (Luke 6:38)

“…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” (Mal 3:10).

“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matt 7:11).

From these verses we can find that God wants to bless us, prosper us, and wants us to have in abundant.

It was 1999, I’ve got started in abusing drugs and became a drug addict till May 2005. During those 6yrs, I was struggling countless of times to stop the drug addictions that I had.

Somethings I faced because of drug addictions –

1. In 2000, my family sent me to Pune in India, and did my Discipleship Training School, I was caught doing drugs in the training center, but then grace was shown to me and I stayed till the school finished, however I was not allowed to go out of the compound.
2. In 2001, I was put in rehabilitation center for some months.
3. In 2002, I stayed in prison for 1 and ½ months.
4. It was around 2002 or 2003, I stayed in hospital because of drug addictions.
5. It was around 2004 I was put in hospital so that I would able to stop my drug addiction, I stayed for around 1 and ½ month.
6. Some few months later I was put in hospital again so that I would able to stop my drug addictions, I stayed for around 2 weeks.
7. In 2004 I was put in another rehabilitation center.
8. In 2005 I was chained in another rehabilitation center and locked up in a room for 3 months,  that was all I too could hope for my deliverance and freedom from drug addictions.

(These 8 points doesn’t include all the Gospel camping I had went so that I may met Christ and be delivered, usually 3 to 4 days each).

I struggled more than words could say, all my family have no hope anymore, many mornings my Grand Mom would knock at my room door and see if I’m dead or still alive. Being in so many addict centers, camping, and hospital several times, there was no more hope in this world for anyone.

How Christ set me free –

It was May 2005, I asked some people who were in the church gospel camping, “Will Jesus still love a very bad sinner?”. Here’s the answer they gave me, “Jesus Loves you from the times you were in your mother’s womb”, and then suddenly peace and joy came to my heart, and all of a sudden I was delivered from that being a hardcore drug addictions.

This was a real miracle from God after struggling for so many years and in many different ways because of drug addictions, and all of a sudden I was set free and was delivered from that tortured of the Devil, it was a simple sentence, “Jesus Loves you from the times you were in your mother’s womb”, and it’s been over 10yrs, this is the power of God. What the world cannot do, God can do, when the world says, “There is no more hope”, there is hope in Christ and God is able.

God has no too worst situation that He cannot deliver, He is able and He loves us. When all hope is gone, there is hope in Christ.

Here’s one beautiful song that is so related to how God delivered me over 10yrs ago from a hard core drug addictions.

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

From my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again
Into your family
Your blood flows through my veins

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

When I listen to this song, I’ve been filled with tears many times, “His blood flows through my spirit, my souls, and my veins and He delivered me”, I can deeply feel the joy of deliverance the Lord had given me.

God Bless You,

The Kingdom of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of hell are incomparable kingdoms, we are living in a much greater and superior Kingdom.

The Kingdom we are living have great weapons. The word of God, prayer, revelations, intercessions and more. The name of Jesus Christ is the Greatest weapon of our warfare, the Devil tremble at the name of Jesus Christ.

While the kingdom of hell is like 3 little puppies, the Kingdom of God is like 1,000 Lions. We are living in the Kingdom of Victory, we are a citizen of Victor, that’s our Kingdom. The Kingdom of hell is the kingdom of hopelessness, while the Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of hope.

The Devil is not omni-potent, he cannot do all things, but God is omni-potent, He can do all things. The Devil is like the little mouse the cat chase. Our God is omniscient, knowing all things, the Devil is not omniscient, he doesn’t know all things.

Jesus said, “Every Authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”. Phil 2:10 said, “At the name of Jesus Christ every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth”. James 2:19 said, “Even demons believe that there is one God, and they tremble in terror”. We are living in a Superior Kingdom, and it is the Kingdom of peace, love and joy.

Superior Kingdom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the battle we fought, our God is on our side, while the Devil is trembling, our God is at peace. We are living in a Superior Kingdom, victory belongs to us.

We cannot enter heaven by our good works or human endeavor, but ONLY by believing in Jesus Christ, this is the grace of God, and grace is grace. Believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and you will enter heaven.

3. JESUS SAVES US FROM POVERTY: There is no poverty in heaven, and poverty doesn’t come from God, our heavenly Father is rich, He has in abundant, God wants to bless us all.
