Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
I bring the better than good news of the Kingdom for you, today!
I am sure this news will fire up your SUPERNATURAL lifestyle, the remaining days of your life, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
Beloved, we’re in a world where & when people don’t actually have faith in God but glory be to His name for His Church, in whom HIS Word is being preached in the DEMONSTRATION OF THE SPIRIT & POWER SO THAT PEOPLE’S FAITH WILL NOT BE IN MEN’S WISDOM BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD – 1 Corinthians 2.4-5(Amplified version):
4 “And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power [a proof by the Spirit and power of God, operating on me and stirring in the minds of my hearers the most holy emotions and thus persuading them]”,
5 “So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God“.
As much as the powers of darkness are trying to hold back the fulfilment of the glorious, royal & golden destinies of people, our heavenly Father in His Wisdom is also using the preaching of His Word to save, help & bless men – 1 Corinthians 1.21-24(Wycliffe New Testament Bible):
”Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe”.
”It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from heaven. And it is foolish to the Greeks, who seek human wisdom”.
”So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense”.
“But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God“.
Although in the Church, you’ll still see & hear some people behave in ways & say
things contrary to God’s Will(either they’re babies in Christ or they’re not growing in the Lord & His Word as they should), the truth is that, the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S WILL IS SPREADING & FILLING THE WHOLE WORLD – Isaiah 11.9(KJV):
“They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea“.
Beloved, you’ll discover from the above Scripture that remedy against evil & suffering is only by correctly applying the Word of God & adapting to His lifestyle after the order of our Lord Jesus.
We are made to understand that because of Jesus, our heavenly Father’s Love Gift to mankind, we’ve been accepted into the Father’s BELOVED, that is, He now sees us as He sees Jesus, He sees us as His LOVED CHILDREN, & we also should see & relate with Him as such:
“To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved”.
One major thing you notice about lovers is that they always say the same things, because they’re in LOVE, they BELIEVE(they have faith) in each other, they operate in the spirit of agreement, they do the same things, whether they’re together or apart, for a while:
”Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise”.
“For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel“.
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me“.
We see the reason for these great operations of the LOVERS because of the Spirit of agreement:
1 John 5.7-8(KJV):
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one“.
“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one“.
In like manner, beloved, since we now belong to the Father, Son & Holy Spirit, we’re to be thinking, speaking & behaving the way They do, in love, agreement & faith!
We are not to speak the language of the world which is full of unbelief, hopelessness, hatred, unhealthy competition, selfishness & wickedness:
John 8.44(Good News Bible):
44 “You are the children of your father, the devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires. From the very beginning he was a murderer and has never been on the side of truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies”.
Believers in our Lord Jesus, the beloved children of our heavenly Father, are to speak our natural heavenly language of love & faith, even as we hear & keep(obey) His sayings – Jn 8.55(Message Bible):
55 “You haven’t recognized Him in this. But I have. If I, in false modesty, said I didn’t know what was going on, I would be as much of a liar as you are. But I do know, and I am doing what He says“.
Luke 8.15(Message Bible):
15 “But the seed in the good earth—these are the good-hearts who seize the Word and hold on no matter what, sticking with it until there’s a harvest“.
Lovers have good hearts towards each other, always holding their words dearly unto fulfilment!
Many believers in the Body of Christ, in a bid to be modest, have gone off into error & falsehood, by not keeping, saying & doing the Words of the Father & our Lord Jesus.
To them, saying what is happening around & not what is written in Scriptures in their favour, is modesty, but the Message Bible Translation correctly puts it that it is false modesty!
True modesty is thinking it, speaking it, doing it & living it, just as our Father & our Lord Jesus did it:
Romans 4.17(Amplified version):
“As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed”.
Mark 11.22-23(Wycliffe New Testament):
22 “And Jesus answered and said to them, Have ye the faith of God”;
23 “truly I say to you, that whoever saith to this hill, Be thou taken, and [be thou] cast into the sea; and doubt not in his heart, but believeth, that whatever he say [but believeth, for whatever thing he saith], shall be done, it shall be done to him“.
Whatever is too big for your mouth to say both in the secret & publicly will always be too big for your hands to handle!
When in love & faith, you speak & do God’s Word, as He promised, certainly, you’ll see the fulfilmment!
This continues in our subsequent posts.
Be blessed of our God with better than good testimonies, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
