Elul 5777 - Month of the Ecclesia

The blessing of Moses over Gad (the tribe for Elul) speaks of Gad participating in the lawmaking and executing of god's judgments. This is the role of the Church - particularly in this year of 5777, the year of the crowned sword, where with our words, decrees and proclamations we make strongholds fall and establish Kingdom. Let creative words flow from your mouth.

TOPIC: THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD.


THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD
“A little while and ye shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see Me, because I go to My Father. Then said some of His Disciples among themselves: What is this that He saith, a little while? We cannot tell what He saith.

Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask Him, and said unto them; do ye inquire of that I said: a little while, and ye shall not see Me: and a little while, and ye shall see Me?

Verily, verily I say unto you, that ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice. And ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remebereth no more the anguish, for the joy that a man is born into the world.

And ye now therefore have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you”…..John 16: 16-22.


THE RECEIVED WORD OF GOD

Our Lord once reminded His disciples, that in this life, they shall have all manners of sorrow. But then He went on to assure them that their sorrows shall yet be turned into joy. And that exactly is what the Holy Ghost is today telling all believers world-wide.

For though sorrow may endure throughout the night, but joy will certainly take over in the morning.

Today, the Holy Ghost is sending a word of comfort to all fretting and sorrowing hearts world-wide. He is telling all of you: weep not, that that sorrow, not matter how long it has endured, shall verily, verily be turned into joy.

But You Must Wait On The Lord And On Him Alone
The Holy Ghost is announcing to all sons and daughters of God worldwide, that their heavenly Father is not a man that He will lie; neither is He the son of man that He would repent of His word. Because He said so, surely that sorrow must of necessity submit to joy, even at His appointed time.

But what is my appointed time? When He says it is your appointed time. And you must wait for that time. He makes ALL things beautiful, yet in His own time.

The irony is that many do wait, but not on the Lord. They wait on men, on trends, on the economy of nations, on their strengths and abilities.

And in so doing, God leaves them to create their own mornings.
How do I know then that I am waiting on the Lord? You will get to know when your life is Christ-like, when you begin to grow wings as the eagles, when your strength is renewed day by day. You know you are truly waiting on the Lord when you are running and not wearying, and you are walking at not fainting.


There Is Always A Perfect Time
Brethren of the Lord, there is a perfect timing for every perfect move of God. There is also His permissive timing for folks who choose to move ahead of Him.

And the Holy Ghost is today reporting, that most believing folks worldwide do not exercise enough patience to wait for that perfect timing - most, almost all!

Yet all things about us can only be made beautiful in that perfect timing. All our sorrows shall be turned into joy when we dare to wait till that very hour – His hour.


Yet Lasting Joy On Earth Is An Illusion
Nevertheless, the Holy Ghost is also forewarning us, that though our sorrows shall indeed be turned to joy; but not entirely in this life. We shall only enter the true, heavenly, endless and ultimate joy of the Father when we get to heaven.

Of course, we should know by now, that there is absolutely nothing in this life that can give one a lasting joy. All that we see here are temporary, fleeting, and subject to whither with time. Nothing in this life is sustainable.

Therefore, when I read the wise of this life speaking of sustainable this and sustainable that, I see the limits of human wisdom.
Men and brethren, Christ came that we may have life and have it in abundance: the everlasting, eternal life – life without end. But that kind of life is only found in heaven.

And when believers begin to live here, pretending that they are living out that abundant life, something serious has happened to their conscience. And if it is not corrected fast, it will open a door to endless covetousness and greed- and at the end, eternal misery.


Live Ready: Do Not Fear, Even Death!
This message is yet to encourage us to continue to live here even as the pilgrims that we are. Every believer is a journey man on earth, and we must live as such.

We must not allow the lusts of the flesh of the things of this life to overcome our heavenly consciousness. We must live ready, always prepared to go to our perfect home whenever the invitation comes.

Most importantly, we must not live in fear of death. It is appointed unto every man and woman, once to die, then judgment. Death therefore is a necessary end. It is the compulsory first step we must take as we ascend the steps of heaven.

Therefore refuse to be afraid, even of death. Neither sorrow endlessly for them that have gone unto eternal bliss. If you must sorrow, you must sorrow for yourselves, especially if you do not have assurance of where your own journey would end.

We are soldiers of the Cross of our Lord. We must be ready for all eventualities.


Also Live Moderately
Our Lord Jesus Christ once spoke of a rich farmer that was boasting of how to invest his earthly riches. That very night the Father demanded the man’s soul. Master Jesus then put out a question: whose would be all that that man had acquired? You must not allow that same question to be asked of your person.

In the Book of Matthew, in chapter six thereof, the Lord instructs His people not to worry about what to eat, what to wear - about this and about that. He said that after all those things do the folks of this life seek. He then encourages us to seek His kingdom first, and having secured it, to continue in the righteousness therein. And that then and only then shall all our needs be supplied by heaven.

For the Father knows that we have need of such things.


Murmur Not, Complain Not, Fret Not
Why then are you worried? Why is your soul troubled? Why are you fretting at the riches of another? Why do you wet your pillow at night because of the things of this life? Why are you troubled about the way your country is going? Why are you living in fear of the known and the unknown?

If ye be a true believer, that is, if you are saved, and you are carefully walking in the fear of God day and night, let your heart be at rest. Let the peace of God that passes all understanding avail you and yours.

Have you not read that the Father desires that we call upon Him in the day of trouble? He promises to answer us. And He has always answered. So, why fret and sorrow? Get into the secret of your room today, if you have one. Even if you do not have any, find a quiet place, and talk to Him.

Call upon the Lord. Tell Him about it all. Show Him your scars if you have some. Tell Him of that pain. He listens. He will hear you, and He will answer you. Yes, He will.

Murmuring and complaining only prolong our sorrows. If that sorrow must pass away soon, then you must learn to trust the Lord. Never accuse Him of any wrong, never, either openly or even in your heart. He can never be wrong. He is always right.

According to the Holy Ghost, the happiest folks on earth and in heaven are the patient in heart – those who endure till the end. Will you endure?


Fear Is Sinful And Destructive
Again, you must cast that fear aside. Receive this secret if you are willing: once we walk in fear, we offend the Father. When we walk in fear, our guardian angels retreat from us, and we are exposed to whatever we fear. Fear is of satan. His other name is fear.
Whosoever walks in fear has unconsciously subjected himself or herself to the will of satan without realizing it.

Fear is offensive to our God. Why: because He is jealous. God cannot stand His own walking in fear of anything or any person other than of Himself!

Satan himself lives in perpetual fear of God, your heavenly Father. And the same God lives in you. Why then fear satan and his works? Consider that and apply your hearts to true wisdom.
Cast that fear aside. If you don’t, be assured that what you fear will suddenly come upon you.

Brethren of the Lord, spiritual things walk in ways many do not realize. When we live in fear and imagine evil coming upon us, that imagination ends up creating that evil. I am revealing divine secrets for those who care to know. Our imaginations are creative, negatively and positively.


Believe And Keep Believing
Brethren, we must believe God and His word of God - and then keep believing, even till the end, if necessary. We must stir our hope, even when it seems hopeless. Remember the recent words of the Holy Ghost in one of our past posts: that there is always hope. Yes, there is always hope, but for them that dare to believe and keep believing.
Do not allow the enemy to steal your hope, for in it lies the heavenly power that drives away all shame.

Keep holding on to the words of the Father. The assurance of the Holy Ghost to all of us is this: that He that will come will come and will not tarry. Though He tarries, wait, and keep waiting. He will not tarry. He will come at His own appointed time – and He makes all things beautiful in His own time.

For the trial of our faith worketh patience. And patience is one of the compulsory fares we all must pay on our journey to heaven.

TOPIC: THE EARTH IS THE LORDS AND THE FULLNESS THEREOF.


THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD
“These things have i spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the Synagogues: yea, the time cometh that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

And these things will they do unto you because they have not known the Father, nor Me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning because I was with you”….JOHN 16:1-4.

"Behold, I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the powers of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you"...Luke 10:19.



THE REVEALED WORD OF GOD


PART ONE
People of God, many of us, even in the very body of Christ, are working in deep offenses. Many are troubled, fearful and anxious for many things. And it is usually written all over us, even in our very words and write-ups.

But why do we live in increasing distress and anxiety, even as believers? Why do we live in great fear and uncertainty even when God, the Creator of the ends of the earth, is our legitimate Father? Why do we live as those who have no hope even in the midst of ever increasing hope?

I am compelled to ask these questions because of the condition of the church of Jesus Christ world-wide. I am forced to raise these issues because the Holy Ghost has ordered me to do so. I am pushed to raise this alarm because necessity is upon me to do so.

No doubt, we are in the era of increasing satanic activities. Satan has taken over the hearts of most world leaders, and persons in positions of authority. And this is world-wide. He has taken most of them captive, and they are simply manifesting his wicked designs. And in so doing, the church has also come under interference and influence from some of these leaders and their agents.

And many in the church are worried, to say the very least. Many in church are panicking and loosing sleep over these developments. Many are praying, but with unsettled hearts. And many that have lost faith in God have taken up arms – the arms of flesh.

Brethren of the Lord, have we quickly forgotten that the earth is the Lord’s and it’s fullness? Have we lost sight of the truth that whatever and whosoever is in this life belongs to the Lord - that the heart of every man or woman is in His very hands? Have we succumbed to the temptation of satan to believe that he is now more powerful than even His Creator?

Let ne quickly inform whosoever is willing to hear: That ALL POWER IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH BELONGS TO GOD. That satan can only exercise power as he is allowed of by God from time to time. That Whatever satan does is with either direct or indirect permission of God. That satan CAN NEVER TAKE GOD UNAWARES, NEVER. That even in the bottomless pit, where satan dwells and operates from, God is fully in charge. Can you beat that?

Why then do we loose sleep about satan and his activities? Why are some of us taking up fights with satan when He Who controls satan is our Father? Some of us are even fighting satan with their fleshly pen and connections. Some are even fighting him with guns and cudgels.
Have we forgotten that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but MIGHTY through God, to pulling down of strongholds….? What has come upon us that we suddenly believe that we can now defeat satan and his agents through the arms of flesh?

May I remind each and every one of us that by flesh shall no man or woman prevail, never! This is the word of the living God and it is sacrosanct. Without God we can do absolutely nothing! All we do without God will wither sooner than later.

God created the world and all that is in it with His word. And life itself is held in balance by the same word. Only a man or woman who walks by sight applies the word “but” to the word of God.

The word of God is the only and final authority in heaven and on earth. The word of God is living – and heaven and earth will pass away but the word of God WILL ENDURE FOREVER- in spite of our doubts!



PART TWO.
Brethren of the Lord, there is a lot of bitterness in town. And bitterness defiles a believer more than anything else. The Scriptures allows us to be angry but to the extent that we must not sin under its influence. Yet many are angry and sinning daily even with their mouths and through what they write.

We cannot pray through having resentments in our heart. The word of God is that if we regard iniquity in our hearts He will not hear us. (Psalm 66:18). When we are full of prejudice, bitterness, offense, fear, anxiety, unbelief and doubt, we cannot pray through. Whoever comes to God must first shed these and similar weights.

We often open our mouths wide or pick up our pen, and pour out our emotions, regardless of how our God feels. Yet we claim that we are Christians. Christians that are not led by the Spirit of the living God?
We pick up our pen and write guile and perverseness all in the name of correcting folks, even our leaders. We readily unload on our leaders and people in positions of leadership. And we think that God is cheering us up!

Do we still realize that the God we serve is a Spirit? How then can we claim to be serving Him when we live by sight? How can we claim to be the sons and daughters of God when most of our actions are controlled by our human senses? How can we live and respond to issues even as the world does and still think that we are pleasing God?

If we still have any atom of fear of God in our hearts, we must restrain ourselves , before God vomits us out of His mouth. We must sheet our swords, knowing that whosoever fights with the sword will also perish by the same sword. That is the word of God.

The everlasting Father has provided us, His children, with unmatch
able weapons of warfare; yet we insist we must fight with arms of flesh.

But how far can we go fighting with the arms of flesh? Who has ever fought satan with bare hands and survived? And that is exactly what many are doing even in the very body of Christ. And in so doing, God leaves us to finish what we started. And the result is increasing satanic inroad into our lives. God forbid!

For the humble at heart, there is no limit to what prayer can achieve. Those who make light of prayer are proud perhaps without realizing it. There is no situation in this life that God cannot touch and bend to His will if we pray with sincerity of heart and in faith. There is no leader in this world that will last a second when God decides that enough is enough. But we must pray and pray through.

As the Holy Ghost continues to remind us, nothing is ever as it appears, absolutely nothing. Every thing in this life and in heaven is deeper than it looks in the outside. And God has provided us with His Spirit to enable us to understand some of these things.

The secrets of our Father’s kingdom are with them that fear Him, and not with them that fear the terrors of satan. When we live in fear and in doubt, we give place to satan and to the forces of this life, and are put down. But whosoever is born of God, and who knows it, and also believes it, will always overcome satan and the world. And this is the victory that overcomes, even our faith.

When we see things as the world sees them, speak as the world speaks, and do things as the world does, we also die as the world dies – and then perish even as the world perishes. God forbid!
Please, keep all your “Buts” in your pocket. Whatever God has not ordained shall never be established. No true child of God will ever die a day before his or her God’s appointed time. ALL untimely deaths amongst believers stem from our ungodly ways and our attempts to overreach God – and the proud at heart.

Today I bring words from the Holy Ghost to His people world-wide: fear not and be not dismayed. Do not be discouraged. The battle is for the Lord. Cast all your cares and burdens upon Him. He will surely come, He will not tarry. Pray without ceasing. Commit all your ways unto the Lord. Never rely on your own imaginations. Believe and keep believing. The expectations of the righteous shall not be cut off.

The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness and will forever remain the Lord’s. He is on top of every situation world-wide, whether we believe it or not.

TOPIC: THE HOPE THAT MAKETH NOT ASHAMED. (PART TWO).

THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD
“Rejoice greatly, o daughter of Zion; shout, o daughter of Jerusalem: behold, the King cometh unto thee: He is just, and having salvation: lowly, and riding upon a colt, the foal of an ass.

And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and He shall speak peace unto the heathen: and His dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

As for thee also, by the blood of Thy covenant I have sent forth the prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water. Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee.”…..ZECHARIAH 9: 9-12.

-THE REVEALED WORD OF GOD –
Men and brethren, this is the second part of the message of hope from the Holy Ghost: first to His Church, and also to the world at large. It is a fresh outpouring from the Fountain of Living Water Himself.

If you have just stumbled upon this part, it is by the help of the Holy Ghost. Also strive to study the first part, and then wait for the third and final part. It is a revival message and it could not have come at a better time.

With God All Things Are Truly Possible
Brethren, the hope of every believer must be established on this very truth: that with God all things are possible.

Any believer who has not come to accept, and without further enquiry, that nothing is impossible with God - that believer will always come to points of hopelessness in this life – and may never even make heaven at last.

In the scripture we cited from the Book of Job, in part one thereof, we are instructed, that if a tree dries up, even to its root, that at contact with water it will sprout again. And that water in our context is the word of the living God.

And the meaning is this: that no matter how seemingly hopeless a situation is, that the word of God is capable of turning that very situation around – that is, if we believe, and if we keep our hope alive.

The Testimony Of Jesus Christ
Men and brethren, on a certain day, Master Jesus manifested to me and began to show me a certain man who had just died, at least in the understanding of all around him, including a medical Doctor. But as I observed the environment, I realized that the spirit of the man was still standing beside his body.

Every one present had given up any hope of reviving the man. But the Lord told me that all that was needed was the word of God, spoken in faith, for that man to return to life.
Eventually, a servant of God entered the scene, and the Lord said I should observe what would happen. The man of God looked at the “dead” man, spoke with the medical Doctor, and declared, “ may his soul rest in peace”.

At this point I became agitated, knowing that something could still be done. I began to plead with the Lord to allow me to step down and do something.He declined. All He did was to heave a very deep sigh of disappointment, and closed the scene.

We all should know the conclusion of that matter. But it did not end there. The Lord then opened to me another scene. This time the scene of an auto accident involving a young man I loved in life. He was knocked down by a hit and run driver, as it were. As his body lay on the road, I watched. That was in the physical. There was confusion. All efforts to revive the young man failed. Every body then concluded that the young man was hopelessly dead, and so it looked.

The Lord then opened my eyes to see what really happened that day. The spirit of the young man was still standing there beside the body for some time. And the Lord told me that the young man would have been revived if I had prayed! But I did not. I wanted to, but a certain heaviness enveloped my heart.

Then, added the Lord, that He was the One Who stopped me from praying for the young man. He said that He had severally heard and seen me preaching to the young man when he was alive.

Master Jesus did give a second reason why He stopped me from praying for the dead man. It had to do with my then fledging ministry. At the appropriate time and season, and at His permission, I will make that reason public also.

He then showed me the young man under torment in hell, and concluded that I did all that was needful for the young man.

Brethren, the key issue here is this: that if I had prayed, that young man may still be alive today.

There Is Always Hope
Brethren of the Lord, there is no hopeless situation in God. As the Holy Ghost later analyzed the matter of hope to me, there is always hope. He revealed to me that that word, "hopeless", is only found in the dictionary of men and of women.

And He has given me a charge to inform His people, and entire creation, that there is always hope – that no situation is ever hopeless in the sight of God.

Yet We Limit God With Our Experiences
Yet He is God. He cannot deny Himself. Even our collective unbelief cannot in any way affect Him or His word. His word is still and forever yea and amen.

Brethren, nothing is impossible with God - absolutely nothing.
We have all limited God by reason of our individual experiences in this decaying life. Each of us, even in His church, always graduate the power and abilities of God by what we have perceived, touched, seen or heard of Him.

But God is above all. He is the Creator of the heaven and of the earth. He is capable of all things. He can do everything. He can destroy all lives, and reproduce them again even in a moment. He can move countries from one location to another. He can alter the world’s weather situation at will. He can heal all sicknesses and diseases. He can raise the dead no matter the number of years in the grave.

God can change times and seasons. He can install, remove and replace world leaders at will. No spirit, no living or dead can challenge our God. Even satan himself thrives at the mercy of God. Ask him if you doubt me.

God does what pleases Him and when it pleases Him. He is not answerable to any, living or dead. He is the Father of all creation, including all spirits. There is no argument or contention against God. Whatever He says stands and forever.

Some will not want to read it, or even hear of it: yet it is also true, that our God is also a consuming Fire.

All who claim that God does not exist are fools, and are amongst the most hopeless of all living. Even satan himself trembles when he remembers that God is still there and forever be there.

Who Will Believe My Report?
But who will believe my report? Who amongst you folks will dare to believe this testimony of the Holy Ghost about the Father?

If only you will believe - for all things are possible to whosoever that believeth. Will you believe today? If you do, you will live the rest of your days in hope – the hope that maketh not ashamed.

Let me also inform us that one’s life can change dramatically through enduring hope. Hitherto we have all been limited by our understanding. This is yet another opportunity for us to get it right.

Try to tarry along. Do not faint, do not give up. Let not your hearts be troubled. The everlasting Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, has stirred Himself to restore all things, even as time closes. He is on the move again: and this time, to give us hope even in a world that is sitting on utter hopelessness.

May I dare to ask: is there anything too hard for our God to do? I do not know your answer to this all important question. But in the third and last part of this message, the Holy Ghost will answer this question to the satisfaction of all. You cannot afford to miss it.
It is forever well with the truly righteous.
