So many have walked through life looking for meaning, looking for purpose, looking for what will fill that void. And in their wisdom came up with alternatives, to fill this void, and even created religion for this purpose. How tragic it will be for one to go through an entire lifetime chasing something be it religion, influence, wealth or ambition only to find out it was all useless.

Today i will like us consider the reason God placed this void in the heart of man. Why does man have a longing, wanting and a desire for more.

Considering Ecclesiastes 3:11 He (God) has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end…

Eternity in the human heart here points to the insatiability of the human heart, the heart of man can take in everything that created, and God intentionally created an abundance of beauty that will speak to the heart of man but essentially never satisfy.

Even growing up naturally has taught us that we desired many basic things only to get them and then realize they weren’t all we thought we ever needed.

The only one who fills all eternity is God, which is what he placed in the heart of man, God alone qualifies to bring satisfaction to man. The very name omnipresent mean being every were, the ability to totally fill leaving no space.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

This scripture brings more light, showing us only righteousness can fill, and digging more into scripture we understand the name Jehovah-Tsidkenu translates The Lord our righteousness. Implying righteousness is God, from Matthew 5:6 it shows clearly righteousness was implied as an external not internal, just as food is something external you eat to abate hunger, so it has nothing to do with self.

Delving deeper even as a matured believer hunger for greater depth of glory is a very natural indicator of divine life, its simply a call to experience a higher realm of Gods fullness. Sometimes it takes a while for the pangs of hunger to bite hard, some people begin to feel as if they have left the presence, its not so, it’s just growth, at this point God needs you to press more into him, cause your capacity has increased, so what would naturally satisfies is no longer satisfactory.

Scripture says as we behold a level of glory we are transformed into that level of glory, so if you refuse to go higher, that level you are stops blessing you cause you are already all that level of glory can give you hence the need to press for more

This simple truth has caused many to get tired and bored of certain Christian assemblies because it seemed what used to be s blessing has stopped being a blessing, it has also affected relationships were certain people begin to discontent because the level of glory that attracted has not grown since then, I’ve observed this from relationships between married people, to mentors and mentee’s even to pastors and members.

The absence of spiritual hunger signifies something is wrong, either death or a serious disorder that will eventually lead to death.

The bible says “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Proverbs 8:17.

Remain a blessing…….

Its a big error for a Christian to have a single doubt about his conviction as a believer. We are not supposed to hope that there is a God, we are not supposed to hope that heaven is real nor baseless believe that Christ came and died and actually resurrected, but rather have a deep seated and concrete knowing of the reality of this truths based on spiritual evidence given to you as a Christian.

There is something responsible for the confidence we see displayed by out patriarchs  in scripture. Think about it what made men at the face of eminent death refused to change their minds, many think that those martyred had no hope or help, but am of the believe that they actually refused Gods saving but chose to suffer even to death. For Bible clearly stated in Hebrews 11:35 Speaking about those who worked their faith stated “And others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection”. Meaning they were actually offered deliverance but refused to accept it but chose to die.

There is a frame of mind called the mind of Christ. Christ knew with every assurance that God was his father in that he had personal evidence backing his claim, I say “personal evidence” cause such evidence is more important to you not for you to give proof to others. And we know its this same mind that we ought to have, meaning the Mind of Christ.

So what is it that fuels the confidence of a believer? What makes you really know your stand?
I believe it is the presence of a spiritual reality, the proof of the Divine, for everyone in the Old testament that was testified to be in the faith, there had been consistent manifestations of the Spiritual in their lives that crystallized confidence in their walk with God, from Abraham that spoke with God as a man spoke with a Man, Jacobs encounter with God when he wrestled with God, to Moses with the event of the burning bush, and many more such examples scattered in scripture. Moving to the new testament the next time we saw such display of confidence and audacity was after the descending of the Holy Spirit on the disciples on Pentecost. Peter was suddenly made bold not long after denying Christ in front of young girl, preached a crowd of over 3000 to believing Christ. Why? Because he. Peter now had spiritual evidence of the reality of what he merely heard from Jesus. It was no longer a story but a reality.

Acts 1:8 says but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. Pointing to the fact the Holy Spirit and the evidence of Spiritual power he bestows in the believer works on building the confidence of the believer.

Now this has been consistent in the Word. That for any man who in faith seek God would find him. So the Bible says in Hebrews “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”, meaning for God at a certain point in your Journey of Faith would reveal himself to you, that’s the reward of seeking God in Faith. And finding God here doesn’t imply some abstract assertion but a real encounter with God, like Moses and the burning bush.

The starting point for every Christian is his encounter with the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:15-16 “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God”. Our first witness is the Holy Spirit but it doesn’t stop at a heart witness, its just the beginning to opening up the believer to more intense and detailed encounters that will fuel an unshakable conviction and confidence in God. I would have loved to go deeper and speak about those who were even caught up into Heaven and many such encounters that Paul and John the beloved had but I pray God gives me grace to speak on it some other time.

More grace….

So I sat trying to ascertain what was the most important and most pressing need of the Holy Spirit with regards to us in this season, mind you God in eternity is not bound by mans estimation and interpretation of Time.

Then I figured out God was waiting for us to conform, God was waiting for us to come to a place of delivery, God is not incapable of doing what you think all he needs is our coming to that place of reception.

So when I say The Press, I am Essentially saying, we press past the limitations, press pass through the barricade, press pass through the all that the world system has consciously and intentionally planted in a bid to refuse us coming to that place of reception.

Why emphasis on the press now, it means.

1. God is now going to make the Spiritual more real than ever, Christianity will not be only ‘I heard’ or ‘I read’, but rather a ‘I know’. Implying a tangibility of the spiritual to those that press. (Touchable and seeable)

2. The eminent harsh realities that will come both on the physical and spiritual plane will take those that have through constant use trained their spiritual sense to react accordingly.

If in all that has been said u didn’t catch anything know that 2017 calls for intense and calculated prayer. Personally I have targeted at least 500hrs of pray through the year (an average of 1h30 daily). Solely for the reason of building up my most Holy faith as Jude puts it.

Press through 2017…..Happy New Year

When we talk about confession, its not just about the words uttered from the mouth but essentially what happens in the heart before the confession is made.

So the bible says “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9-10

So from the very beginning of our Christian walk, we see that God made the principle of confession evident to us, that it is a heart thing.
For with the heart man believes, implying that before we even think of uttering a word of confession.

Its not so much about what is said but the state of the heart in relation to what is said, its very important you are first invested in believing with a ready commitment to do what is required to bring your confession to reality.

Confession are actually first and foremost a product of faith, its out not vice versa.

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 2 Corinthians 4:13

This shows us that the first thing is the Spirit of faith, faith graduates till it becomes an intricately part of our Speech.

Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. Job 22:28

Its clearly seen that the words we speak have a Spiritual backing, it was same way God brought about Creation in Genesis. Its clear that our confession consists of our words and Jesus speaking said “the words that I speak they are Spirit and the Life.” Meaning the words we speak have the capacity and propensity to become reality, to come alive. Althrough scripture we find this truth written and used over and over again.

So starting today make it a goal to speak positively, make positive and spiritual confessions part of your daily life. Create the reality you want to see with the words of your mouth and let the words come from a firm and believing heart.

Remain a blessing…….

The bible makes us understand that we are a new creation in Christ Jesus, but what does it really mean? Is it just an intellectual concept, spiritual concept, or also a physical living reality?

When we say a new creation it seems some do not fully get the whole truth, so permit me borrow from Science and say we a new specie altogether s , we are not the homo sapiens, it is clear that and we see from scripture that something physical happens to the a man when he gives his life to Christ.

Mark 16:16-17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Jesus speaking here was pointing out that physically in our bodies we are above certain natural limitations the moment we accept Him as Lord. It is clearly stated in scripture in

John 1:12 – 13 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Indicating that the moment we became born again we stopped to take after our biological fathers genes and blood but became partakers of a whole new nature which is of God and this nature is both true of our Spirit and Our physical bodies.

2 Peter 1:3-4  says “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

This goes to say being partakers of the divine nature, the Christian is more God than man, that’s why our bodies can not hold sickness, that’s why we can operate in divine health, that’s why our minds can process thoughts which are of God.
Remember it was the activity of the Holy Spirit in the Body of Jesus Christ that enabled him raise from the dead, and this Holy Spirit is responsible for transforming our physical human bodies the moment we come into Christ, Romans 8:11 establishes this truth
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

This quickening of the Spirit kills the effect and desire of sin from our very physical bodies, not just our Spirit.

In ending the natural man, can nor receive the Holy Spirit, the unregenerated man can not have the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. It is given only to the new creation in Christ Jesus.

Meditate upon this truth and allow it sink into your spirit, till it becomes an intricate part of your person, so you can live the God life here on earth.

TRUE LOVE

By Jerry Hinjari

I believe the most beautiful thing that exists on the earth is Love, the Love of God and that is God himself for in 1 John 4:8 John declared. He that loves not, does not know God; for God is love.

God sacrificed his son for us so we could have his life, so amazing.Thats why Jesus said no greater love than this that a man should lay down his life for his friends.
Love is sacrifice, Love is pure,Love is true, its way more than a feeling cause feelings change but true love is the Nature of Christ it is the Spirit of Christ.

Love is faith. Love causes us to obey and submit For in John 14:21 scripture states “He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me”. Clearly showing us love is a faith state of mind that prompts us to obey
Love is not selfish. Love is forgiveness. Love is stronger than death. Love is Holy. Love removes the veil from our eyes and opens our eyes to see God clearly…all these speak about God. The greatest of all is Love.

The way we can show love to men depends on our relationship with God, it depends on how much of God we have inside of us. Love releases life. The evidence of our union with God and knowledge of God is love, it’s really not totally about the power or how many miracles we perform it’s about love, its about loving our neighbour. t
There is no fear in love, cause perfect love casts out all fear. Love speaks the truth, our desire should be to love the Lord and express it to the world, through that his power flows through us, for every time Jesus performed a miracle, he was moved with compassion, the love of God, and men were healed and followed Christ afterwards these days there are many miracles without the Love of God, so people are healed and some go back to their normal way of life, the Love of God draws men to follow Christ. Scripture says we should seek first the kingdom of God, the kingdom of God is the kingdom of love. We musk seek Love first then all other things will be added unto us. Our faith works by Love and without faith we cannot please God. Love is the essence of our Christian life.

“And now abides faith, hope, Love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Keep blessing your world……

God intended for man a helper in the woman, in this song we celebrate love, intimacy, and companionship the God way. We pray for everyone out there with a vision that they find that other half, that will help journey through life. So in Love produced by T-Klex, (c) Levi Records 2012… God bless you.

I have come to know that there are many religions and belief systems in the world, and am very aware that Christianity is not alone when it comes to proof of Spiritual reality, or spiritual power as backing to Such beliefs.

Today I seek to give us non-refutable Scriptural, Historical and Present day evidence that proves to the Christian he is on the right path.

First is the existence of Israel as a nation, the bible gives historical and biblical accounts of actual happenings and real events with traceable facts of such happenings. Secondly the fact that till today Israel as a political nation is not Christian nation, as prophesied in Scripture.

But ultimately the evidence and confidence of Salvation for the Christian is the Holy Spirit, that if any man will truly seek the true God on a neutral God, the Holy Spirit will bring such a person to the revelation of the Holy Spirit. For scripture states the Holy Spirit has come to do three things ‘convict the world of sin, righteousness and Judgement. (John 16:8). Implying every many upon the earth will be convicted in his heart of sin, and how to come into righteousness with God and the coming Judgement of the world.

Paul speaking of our assurance said in 1Corinthians 1:13-14

“And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ – you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of his glory”. (NET bible)

In other words Paul was saying the Holy Spirit we received was a part payment of Gods prove to the assurance that we are saved from the eternal judgement of the world, and an assurance that we will come into the inheritance God promised us which is eternal life in Gods very presence in the life here after.

The Holy Spirit as God, is God giving Himself to the believer to assure him that there’s a spiritual reality were God exists beyond the physical elements of this world and a foretaste of life after death.
