Jesus Is Calling To His Brides “Will You Stay With Me”?

Jesus reaching out

Hosea 2:14-16
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her,and bring her into the wilderness,and speak tenderly to her. And there I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. And there she shall answer as in the days of her youth,

as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt. “And in that day, declares the Lord, you will call me ‘My Husband,’ and no longer will you call me ‘My Baal.’

Many of us don’t realize the Lord still suffers tremendously because of indifference, lost souls, suffering souls and his unfaithful brides. Yes, God still suffers because there is suffering in the world however he looks for his brides for comfort on the cross but many times finds himself left alone as he was during his crucifixion. Forsaken by all besides his disciple John and his Mother, Blessed Mary.

Being here in this prayer community I have had the opportunity to experience the Lord in the most profound way as I have never had before. Father Ezekiel who is our Bishop many times experiences stigmata which is (in Christian tradition) marks corresponding to those left on Jesus’ body by the Crucifixion, said to have been impressed by divine favor on the bodies of St. Francis of Assisi and others). However, he experiences spiritual stigmata where the Lord takes him through the passion in pain. I found myself sitting at his bed side through one of the episodes and many times the Lord won’t tell him who he is suffering for but this time he did. The Lord referenced it was “his unfaithful bride” and that he was looking to be consoled.  As the Lord kept telling his unfaithful bride “what about the children, if not for me then what about the children?” Oh, how those words cut my heart to pieces. The Lord was speaking about the spiritual children him and his bride birth or can birth together if she would surrender herself to only him. However, the world and the summer season have taken his brides attention away from being with him. As I began to pray I found myself in a vision of “the passion”.

“I saw Jesus carrying the cross and the jeering crowd hurling insults and throwing rocks at him. What touched me the most is that I first saw Jesus with his “bride” in a room as he was crying out to her, please don’t leave me if not for me then for the children. This “bride” was so indifferent and utterly annoyed at his request as she stood oppositite of him with her arms folded. Completely rejecting him then stomping out the door leaving him in tears. Then the scene went back to the passion as he was carrying his cross with blood, tears and sweat running down his cheeks, so sad, lonely and utterly downcast. I saw our Lady, Blessed Mother there walking silently along with her son in the crowd her heart broken too. Then I saw his “bride” very close to the road to Del A rosa but she was in the homes of other man. Being with them, spending time with them and one man said “isn’t that your husband being crucified don’t you want to be with him”. Yet, the bride responded with such repugnance and disdain to him as she continued to carry on with her other “lovers (the world).  Then I saw other brides who were in the marketplace in Jerusalem buying and selling things as the people would say “isn’t that your husband being crucified” and she too would respond with compelte indifference with no care or love at all for Jesus as she continued…business as usual. Then finally we got to the top of calvary as they had erected Jesus on the crucifix. Then other bride came this time to mock at him, curse him tell him suffering was a disgrace, she was so ungrateful and utter despised the cross. Jesus, heart was being ripped to shreds at her words, His wife, His bride, the Lover of his heart had not only rejected him but betrayed and mocked him just like the crowd. He was in tears and so was Blessed Mother as she stood facing him, her heart broken as well to think she had entrusted Her heart, her son, into the arms of a women she though would love him  and care for him as his wife. 

Then the vision ended…I was in tears as I cried. Remembering I too used to be that unfaithful wife. Lord if we only knew how much you still need us, need our company, our lives, our love and our surrender fully as brides of Christ so I went to console him. A few days later I began to pray the rosary, the 7 sorrowful mysteries to be exact which trace 7 aspects of Mary’s life with Jesus where the sword as Simeon prophecies had perfected her heart

Luke 2:35
so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

 

So as I continued to pray I envision myself in every scene  of Blessed Mothers life with Jesus and focused on being with him there. I got to the sixth sorrowful mystery where Jesus was taken down from the cross and I was yet again in front of his passion. I saw Jesus, now dead completely uncovered, beaten, flesh torn and ripped with much much blood as I looked at him with such sorrow. To the left I saw Our Lady, Blessed Mother who was the one his body was given too. However, she looked at me with tenderness as she was in an all black veil and beckoned for me to come. She backed away and motioned for the Lords body to be given to me instead. I was amazed as i walked up close to the cross and the soldiers began to lower his body I realized I was wearing a beautiful white wedding dress as the rested Jesus in my arms. All I could feel was such deep sorrow as I looked at his mutilated body and immediately took off my veil to cover his nakedness and wrapped it around him. Then I laid him gently down as I began to rip pieces of my wedding dress skirt to wrap the gaping wounds of his feet, his legs, and head with the crown of thorns removed. All I could do was kiss, my Jesus and tell him how sorry I was for what I did. Then the next scene I saw myself now in the tomb. Our Lady Blessed Mother was there and had just finished wrapping him in swaddling clothes for his burial. She looked up at me beckoned me to come once me and sit with him. So I did this time as she smiled gentle at me and as she walked away she said “Stay with him”. So I did, for a while just looking at his lifeless body and kissing his hands. Then I came out of the vision.

I never knew I could experience the Lord in such a real, personal and passionate way not only through these prayers but through his passion. Our God still suffers, each soul is his bride and we must ask ourselves where we fit in. Which bride our we to the Lord. The one with many lovers, (money, man, the world etc), the bride who is to busy ( with family, holidays, career etc) or the bride who despises the cross (who is always complaining, hates to suffer, doesn’t carry their cross etc). Which bride are you? The Lord is calling to his “unfaithful brides not only come back to me but stay with me”. The Lord gets so much consolation from our companionship, our love, our presence. Yes! Jesus if fully God but he is also Man still…and just like any man he has needs, the needs of those he loves and those who say they love him. Please there is so much suffering going on in this world and Jesus is hurting. He calling out to his brides….he is calling out to you beloved. Will you stay with him? Be with him in worship, Be with him in prayer stay with him.

God Carries A Picture Of Me In His Wallet!

3248_657418995140_5711101_n

So this term was coined by Pastor Todd White and when I first heard it all I could do was laugh at not only the truth in that statement but, the reality that our God is truly a proud parent of all his children. As believers sometimes it hard to receive Gods love. We here it used so loosely at time. God loves you and we think yea I know but,……..if we really search our hearts we have to ask yourself do you really know how loved you are by God, do you? Because I believe if we really knew how much God loved us we would live not only differently but accordingly. If we can be honest, including myself, sometimes our love for him can be so conditionally and I believe we have been taught that way. As if Gods love is conditional too, that when we go through hard times, death, suffering, trials, poverty, rejection, the list can go on that means God doesn’t love us or your not blessed. However, when we go through blessing, riches, elevation, promotion, and have favor with men that means God loves us. Such a twisted incorrect perspective which is such an injustice to our identity once we are saved. You see Jesus died on the cross because of your sin not for it, he died because your sin caused you to be not only separated from God the Father but from your true identity as his child walking in fellowship and communion with him. So he had to die because of your sin there fore redeeming you back to God the father so that you can now have fellowship and communion with him daily as Adam did. His blood restored your identity back to who you were before Adam sinned. That’s why he continues to call his children justified by the cross, justified by the blood, justified if we confess and believe in his son Jesus. Romans 8:30 Those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified, Justified: Just-as-if- you never sinned! YOU are a son & daughter of the Most High King period. That’s who you are right now, nothing can change that who yearns to have deep intimate relationship with all his children. That’s why God created us for relationship with him, he created us for himself that’s it. Its so simple but it sounds so foolish to those who are perishing

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

If you let that sink in, it blows your mind. I remember having that revelation of his love and its almost overwhelming. That God created the universe for us but created little ole me for himself. That I am the most precious commodity, I am his masterpiece, I am his favorite prized one, I am everything to him and despite all I have done and will do. His love, his adorations, his gaze, his glory, is focused on me so much so that He has now come to make his home inside of me because he loves me! That can blow anyone’s mind lol  When I first read Psalm 139 and

Psalm 8:4-6
What is man that You are mindful of him and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels and have crowned him with glory and honor

I laughed because I thought to myself David gets it! I love King David because the revelation of Gods love for him and Israel made him even dance in his lossley garments in front of all Israel and he didn’t care one bit. 2 Samuel 6:14 Wearing a lined ephod, David was dancing before the LORD with all his might. You know so many times we walk around condemnation because we messed up but God doesn’t condemn you and never will because you are his child. We walk around in guilt or shame because of our past but when God sees you, he sees you as you never sinned your his child. We walk around victimized, hurt, & rejected by others but, God has never rejected you because of the finished work of Jesus blood you have been accepted as his child. We walk around thinking God is too busy, not really present, hard to reach, not really concerned with the details of our lives but,  you are his child so just as he walked with Adam in the cool of the day he now walks with you every single second, of every single day, wherever you go. He so desperately wants you to be conscious of that because living a life WITH God is so much better than FOR him. As your perspective changes you no longer see yourself as a slave following rules and directions but as a child holding their fathers hand going on crazy, surprising, sometimes difficult bur rewarding adventure!

I love the song Pieces by Amanda Cook from Bethel Church because the lyrics are so beautiful and true. Many times in our relationship the Holy spirit has reminding me of Gods love through this song. May favorite parts of the lyrics is the first verse when she states :
Unreserved, unrestrained
Your love is wild
Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, its unashamed
Your love is proud
To be seen with me

So during my alone time with the Lord he showed me a beautiful picture in my heart of many of his children walking around with their heads down desponded, hopeless, feeling dirty, unclean, ashamed, condemned and he was in heaven shouting at the top of lungs with such excitement saying Look, look guys, you see that one, yup that’s my son. Oh ooooh look over there yup this one. She is mine that’s my daughter with such love and excitement he was boasting about them in front of all of heaven.
Some of these people were homeless, looked dirty, one was a prostitute, some others were just who were just ashamed of their past, what they had done or were doing. Some were so broken and hurt because of the rejection they faced from others and felt so isolated and alone. Yet, here God the Father was in so much, almost child like giddy excitement proudly boasting that is my child! Haha, that’s exactly what his love looks like its so unashamed and it proud to be seen with you regardless of what the world thinks of you, treats you or what people say. You are a child of God period, His love for you is truly unconditional period, He always is ever present with  you and will NEVER leave you period and he wants you to know that and live this love out WITH him….period lol.So guess what, God has a picture of YOU in his wallet too boasting all day about you, because when he sees you he sees your true identity, his child, a heir to throne of the kingdom of God!

 

2 Corinthians 6:18
And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

God bless you child of God!

When The Enemy Assigned Death The Lord Declared Life & Multiplication!

1461112_10153854559639774_6665001791689694924_n

This has definitely been an exciting weekend for my family. I am in awe at the Lord seeing the fulfillment of his faithfulness, his mercy and grace upon my families life. My older brother who was locked up for 3 years was released 7 years early on good behavior to come home to be with us yesterday! Isn’t God so gracious and merciful. We  all got together at my mothers house for a celebrations. The whole family which includes, 8 nieces and nephews , my 5 sisters , my brother and a few friends. For the first time in 3 years my mother had all 7 of her kids under her roof again. So you had to imagine the house was so noisy with celebration and yes, of course yelling at the kids to tone it down lol. Toward the end of the night we had a friend group us all together to take a picture and they said wow there is so many of you all. I looked around and smiled inside because there is so many of us, to think just a few years ago the number of people in my family brought me shame, embarrassment, guilt, sadness, hopelessness, irritation and even anger.  I just had to praise the Lord for his sovereignty, his goodness, faithfulness and his grace in that moment he reminded me where death was assigned to our family he not only declared life but multiplied us as well! Thank you Jesus he is so awesome!!

You see at some point each one of my siblings even my parents have faced death. Only a few years ago did I notice this pattern and assignment the enemy was after our family intentionally, and intensely. As he is after every believer, however the Lord always protected us, sustained us and I know see the manifestation of the Lord redeeming us! So just  a little family history of the instances in our family where the enemy  could’ve taken each of us out if it wasn’t for the Lords intervention. My mother at young age of 21 was walking home from work when she first arrived in the states. She was told at the time from my uncle not to get a ride from anyone and wait on him however, she was tired didn’t listen and got a ride from a passerby. He then decided to take a route separate from my mothers house and attempted to lock her in the car. However, my mother said something told her to jump out the car during a red light and she did just that. Running for her life and she learned her lesson that day  that it was the grace of God that nudged her to run out the car. My father was also in a bad car accident where he was thrown out the vehicle and almost lost his life as a youth. Then my older brother Todd,  has had many battles. Starting from my mothers womb he almost died, they had to take him out with forceps thought he would be blind or have brain damage but,within a few weeks was perfectly fine. The following years of his adolescences and adult life got involved with the wrong crowd and friends. Had many fights, and as a family we had many nights of prayer for him not sure if he would return home. However, even with him a getting sentenced I see the Lord hand in that because the Lord corrects those he loves and keeps them from harm even sometimes we don’t perceive what he is doing. Thank you Father!

Hebrew 12:6
For the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”

Now to me, I had one of the most terrible accidents about 5 years ago where me and friend where driving from the club (yes partying and drinking) we were side swiped and our car flipped rolling over the median into the merging lane, we landed on top of another car and rolled again 5 times into the grassy plain across the highway about a few feet from light pole. With no seat belt  I landed right side up and I literally had a half inch scratch on my back. Where as my other friend had bruised lung but we were all perfectly okay. If that isn’t God I don’t know what is! Then my younger sister Nana Fremah also had a death or life encounter giving birth to her son, Tristen where she began to hemorrhage right after giving birth.  She at one point thought of having abortion when she found of out her pregnancy. She made an appointment and upon entering into the facility for the procedure she stated the Lord nudged her to walk out  and she did just that. My wonderful nephew Tristen would’ve never been here if she didn’t listen. Then my sister following her Nana Serwah has been in two almost deadly car accidents. One was with my other sister who follows her Nana Kondau, where the car they were driving caught on fire. They were told by a family driving beside them to jump out. So they jumped out of the car and upon the car hitting the curb it exploded. Can you believe that,  something out of  an action movie. They both walked away with scratches by the Grace of God! To add to this testimony when my sister Nana Kondua got pregnant with her children the first one we call Zay Zay was born with seizures which the Lord has already declared by his word and even in a vision that he will heal her!! The second one, Naomi was a troubled pregnancy my sister had no ammonic fluid. The doctors told her to abort but, she didn’t trusting the Lord will let the baby live. Sure enough Naomi came out kicking, screaming feisty premature baby so strong and still has no issue even now. We thank God for his Grace!! Now, with Nana Frimponga known as Nana #5 has gone through many trials of depression & even suicide. When we were hopeless and as she was admitted into the hospital, my mother weary not sure what to do but to pray. She told my sister not to take the medication trusting the Lord and sure enough the Lord guided my sister to the bible she began to read it and was able to overcome this battle. We thank God that his word is power it against any strong hold!

 Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

So now seeing where the enemy had not only tried to take my parents out even before they had us, then take each of us which would then stop my sibling from having their beautiful children. I remember about 4 years ago being in the car driving to my mothers house and so saddened, burdened and in despair as to where my family was. My siblings kept having a children it seemed like every year and the toll it was taking on my mom. I just broke down in the car asking the Lord why, where was here, it seems are prayers were going in circles. I was just tired and utterly broken, I felt so helpless, alone and hopeless. I know now that was the furthest from the truth. The Lord was right there and has been all along. He even brought a scripture to my attention a few months ago regarding children:

Psalm 127: 35
Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.

Isn’t that beautiful scripture, that is how good our God is that even out of wedlock, even in the midst of our sin he blesses us with a beautiful gift of children and what a blessing all 8 of them are now to us. Yes, we still have our struggles in our family and by no means is everything perfect but now looking back I thank God for our numerous trials , I thank him for his Grace upon us, His Mercy, His Goodness, His Love and his Faithfulness! We are still waiting and trusting him to see the manifestation of all his promise’s but, I now know that we were never alone and we will never be alone. We can face anything as a family by his grace for he will never leave us or forsake us. Thank you Lord that when the enemy assigned death to our family not only did you declare life but you multiplied us as well!! Praise you Lord, Love you Jesus!!

 

God Sets A Table In Front Of Our Enemies To Invite Them To Dinner

010

“The Lord will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies “I hear that scripture quoted a lot in a lot of sermons but to be honest its mentioned in pride so proudly. Not to say the Lord wont do that but, he does exactly that and he sets a table before our enemies just to invite them to dinner as well. Isn’t that just like the heart of God lol. By Gods grace I have come to understand  the heart of God concerning souls, they are so precious to him whether wicked, lost, or saved because he has made man his dwelling place. No temple, no building, no specific location but the heart of all men, that’s where he resides for the anyone who will accept him because that’s where we were created from, the Heart of God.

Matthew 5:43-48
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Many times I have contended with the Lord concerning those who weren’t treating me right, who had hurt me asking the Lord do you not see what they did  or what they said in my little pity party and I promise I would hear the Lord so clearly say ” Love them, they are wounded and rejected, that’s why I brought them too you, Love them but, but, he would say again Love them, show my mercy”. Can I say it was and always is difficult to do when you feel you need to be justified but, the Lord calls us to do otherwise not only by his word but in his nature as well. All through out scripture we see many times when Jesus could’ve retaliated, cried out for Abba Fathers justice right then and there instead our beautiful Saviour in his justice cried out for forgiveness and then when even further to lay down his life for his enemies and at the cross.

Luke 23:34
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

I think as Christians we all forget that we were all enemies of the cross before Christ saved us from death into life with him. Scriptures say that yet when we were still sinners he died for us. That is all of us, so why then is it so hard to forgive our enemies, to have mercy and forgive those who have hurt us, accused us, insulted us, took advantage of us, slandered against us, betrayed us,  & used us? I am definitely not saying its easy but, with God all things are possible if we just forgive by faith and our truly gracious to those who we consider enemies believe me the Lord will do the rest and began to heal wounds & broken hearts.  I was reading Rick Joyner “Final Quest” book detailing a visions & encounters the Lord gave him where he was caught up in heaven and the Lord revealed so much wisdom concerning his nature and character especially in these last days. “He said concerning our enemies  “I come to take over not choose sides. I love all Men and desire all men to be saved. I use you to save your enemies” Isn’t that amazing & profound all at the same time!
So let me ask you, who have you been holding a grudge against, who do you consider your enemy , have you been relentless attacks with accusation & slander? Well I can tell you what to do, love them to Christ! Yea, I said it love your enemies to Christ, its his love and kindness in you that will lead them to repentance!

Romans 2:4
Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?

As many things in the nation escalate for the worse. There is a strong division that has been planted by the enemy to divide people through, racism, status, class, religion, etc you name it. Even because of the news and media people now have a impulse to just have hatred, mistrust, and disdain for others because the world has gotten so dark and many Christians have hidden their light under a bushel maybe because of fear but, I encourage you not to hide your light especially your light of love! If you allow your heart to be hardened seeing what is going on then you will be easily used by the enemy to further cause division when our nation begins to fall apart. However, God has called us to stand on him the rock, he is the word, hope and our faith. Faith that perfect love cast out all fear, so by loving our enemies no matter how, wicked they can or will be that it will lead them to repentance and the Christ in you will shine even brighter! So forgive, show mercy, let go, and show grace and mercy to your enemies. Will you do that, began to declare it by faith, walk in that faith and allow the Lord to do the rest and you will be surprised who will be sitting right next to you at the wonderful wedding feast of the bride…..your once thought to be enemy now family! God bless

When God Is Your Lover

bride-of-christ_n

Where do I even start, He has ravished my heart,  captured my thoughts, my body & my mind. There is a longing so deep within me that only He can satisfy. No, no man, absolutely nothing on this earth compares to Him. He truly completes me in every way. I am absolutely nothing with out Him and everything in Him. I never knew a love like this, cant even say I knew it existed but, to forsake all that my heart desires to have Him and his heart. Why there is no greater treasure than in heaven or on earth. He is truly my God, Father, Friend & Lover in the most purest way you can think possible. That’s what makes this LOVE even more beautiful.  So many see God is a distant deity so unpersonable, lacking in emotions besides knowing him for blessings or judgment. However, that is the farthest thing from the truth. I was one of them, I never knew the Lord would and could speak to me. I thought it was a gift for a few select but, when I finally surrendered my whole life to him and he spoke to me just one word chattered every lie & wall I had built up my whole life in the  Christian “religion”. The Lord yearns for a “relationship” with all his children to come know his “person”(personality, image, likeness) through Jesus Christ his son, who was once fully man dealt with all the emotions we go through, died for our sins & rose on the third day. Through him and ONLY him may we come to have an intimate relationship with God.  You see God has always pursued us and created us for relationship with him…..can you believe that the Creator of the Universe creating us just to have fellowship, friendship & relationship with him because he has feelings and desires too. How he looooongs for that with all of us! Especially in our generation, we get to be married to the Lamb, Jesus Christ. We are the bride that he speaks of all through out scripture and in revelation.

Revelation 19 :7-9
Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

You can be as close to God as you want,  you can go as deep as you want to go because God is eternal and his love for us no one can measure the depth or height that means his love is infinite….you can just keep going deeper, deeper,  and deeper . The more deeper you go the more of him you want, like the sweetest honey you wont be able to get enough its amazing!

James 4:8
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you

I started my journey in intimacy by asking the Lord to know his heart. Then he began to show me his heart in the form of burdens during worship and just having a deep love for everyone I met. Soon I began to telling him how I wanted to get lost in his heart ooh, no actually I wanted to live in it and he said “Welcome home”! Haha when he spoke those words I could’ve melted. I love it when my Love speaks to me like that, just one word does it every time. That’s where we were created from the heart of God, each of us fit a unique specific mold in his heart that only we can fit perfectly like a fingerprint.

Here in my journal entry on  01/12/2016  I had the most beautiful vision of Jesus and I getting married. I had a beautiful white dress, laced train that was attached to my shoulder and a beautiful crystal crown. I was walking down the isle and I saw him, my love, my King dressed in a black tuxedo but, with no jacket. He had a white collar shirt with a black bow tow with groomsmen surrounding him. He was ecstatic, almost jumping up with joy trying to contain it with his hands crossed and clasped in front of him. I saw his beautiful wavy hair and a dimple on his right cheek as his smile captivated me and brought me to smile even more….as I said my vows to him This is the one thing I truly seek to live in your heart all the days of my life! Will you have my as your bride, stubborn, strong willed, funny and crazy passionate about you? Yes, I have temptation everywhere in the world trying to get my attention and sometimes I look off for just a moment but, one look of your gaze God, nothing on earth compares. I say I do to you as my groom. I can’t wait to see you. To kiss your hands, feet and run my fingers through your silky wooly curls. To hear your heart beat as I lay on your chest and we dance the night away in the galaxy among the stars. But, oh how you shine the brightest. In your almond eyes I see all the galaxies combined, the universe in a twinkle gazing at me, your beloved, your dove, your bride. I love you with a fire I cant explain. I am in Love with you Lord!!

large-line-item-447948

So we have a grace in this generation none in history have had before. We get to know God even more intimately as our husbands for we are the Bride of Christ!

Isaiah 54:5
Indeed, your husband is your Maker; the LORD of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.

So will you allow God to become Lord of your life, King of your heart, & Lover of your soul?

 

Wake Up Sleeping Christians!

sleeping christians

The Lord gave my sister a powerful message in a dream a couple of days ago. In the dream the lord had typed out a message ARISE & AWAKE FROM SLEEP RESIST THE DEVIL & HIS EVIL TAKE FAITH GET READY THE LORD IS COMING!……..The prophecies in the BIBLE are being fulfilled right before our eyes and so many are still asleep. He has been given many revelation of the season we are in and that the Lords return is not just soon but it is imminent.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-9
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Definition of Imminent: About to happen, impending, close (near at hand), (fast) approaching, likely to occur at any moment; impending

I began to proclaim this boldly a few months ago upon receiving many revelations myself however to be honest due to discouragement , intense spiritual warfare & attacks. Honestly I began to cowar in fear, fear of the attacks. If i was wrong with what the Lord was showing me and even fear of what others would say. I thought to myself I will just wait till things began to further accelerate and then become more bold. But the Lord chastised me to not be ashamed, not moved if others reject you out of fear but that LOVE WARNS, out of his LOVE & MERCY for us he is giving revelation by the Holy Spirit to warn those who will heed His coming judgment and rapture of his bride. Many I know have had revelations through dreams/visions of flooding, wars, the tribulation and rapture and haven’t shared because of…..fear or doubt maybe but I say the revelation is not for just only you but for his body, for the lost, for your family and friends before its too late. The enemy what’s us to shut our mouths, to shut up God testimony within us but its time to be strong and courageous in the Lord! That’s how we overcome by the blood of the lamb and the WORD of our testimony so that means we have to speak. WAKE UP MY BROTHERS & SISTERS!! Jesus is coming for a SPOTLESS BRIDE not for Christians who just believe in him and don’t follow none of his commandments.

Luke 6:46
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?

It is time to pull way from things of this world, and issues of this world like the racism & division that is happening. That is not the spirit of God but of the devil if you fall for the ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬ , the protest, then you will fall for the fighting & rage the enemy will soon plant to cause this nation to be ensued with racial riots. Don’t you know with Jesus ‪#‎alllivesmatter‬. He created ALL nations, ALL races, ALL tribes and ALL tounges and he loves them all! Don’t unite in racial protest but, in prayer that defeats the real enemy Satan! Who is behind this slew of racism and division.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

What do you watch? Turn away from filth and any sexual immoral show on TV, even the news which ensued fear in your heart and causes you to act out in fear towards others. What you listen too, artist, the music & lyrics they sing are powerful. Is what you listening to pleasing to God, edifying worshiping and praising him if not don’t open yourself what you do draw even closer to him than ever before. That doesn’t mean just going to church on Sundays and having the pastor feed you but NO, know the Lord for yourself, know his word (the BIBLE), and most importantly have a personal relationship with him THE HOLY SPIRIT, have a strong prayer life and a listening ear because he will talk to you. Most importantly COME OUT OF ANY SIN that you are in NOW. If you think your walking righteously ask God to show you sins of your heart. Are you harboring unforgivness, bitterness, jealousy, resentment, pride, lust. Ask the Holy Spirit of hidden sin and repent daily.

Revelation 3:3
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you

For those who don’t know Jesus, he is the ONLY ONE that can save you there is NO OTHER NAME IN HEAVEN OR EARTH that can save you from the wrath of God and give you eternal life. He Is the ONLY WAY, The TRUTH, The LIGHT, your Saviour and  your God, and yearns to be your Father & Friend because he loves you with an everlasting Love exactly where you are at. You just have to surrender your life to him, ask him to be Lord of your life and ask the Holy Spirit to live inside of you. Give him COMPELETE control of your life and make a decision TODAY to finally live for him. Pick up your cross and follow Jesus! He knows what your purpose and identity more than anyone ever will because he created you. Come to him he is all that you need and most important REPENT BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND.

Matthew 4:17
From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Rejecting God To Seek Men

christ-rejected-650

 

When we surrender to the Lord we find ourselves so full of his love. We become so grateful of his grace to not only save us but make himself known to us. Oh, how wonderful that is! Then you want to share your testimony, your faith and him with everyone but, soon find many reject him. You don’t seem to understand why they don’t get it, why they don’t get Him, Jesus Christ and his wonderful grace for them. Oh how his heart breaks and sometimes you can even feel that grief and if your anything like me you will make a vow not to ever reject him as long as you live….by his grace of course. Even reading the scriptures of the Gospel and seeing how the Pharisees, the Jews, even though from his own city rejected him and I began to wonder being grieved again how could they. A few months ago I was so grieved looking at our nation, our world and so many still reject him and how its hurts him so deeply.

Then the Lord spoke to me and said you have rejected me and I said Yes, Lord before I knew you but I am all yours living for you now. I love you. Then He said No, even now you reject me and I said Lord how?! and He said seeking the affirmation from men and rejecting who I said you are and called you to be. Does my opinion not matter?….I melted

You see when I surrendered the Lord ask me to lay down not only my will, but my dreams, gifts and aspiration to follow him. I was CEO of An national African scholarship pageant called Face of Africa, I had my own clothing & Jewelry line called Nana O Couture, and I was just beginning to get my feet wet in acting again. I had told myself 2014 was the year to be fearless and move to NY to follow my dreams but, then the Lord interrupted as he always does right lol He revealed himself to me bringing me to my knees and asked me to lay all that down to follow him and wait on him.  At first I kept wondering what am I waiting for then he opening my mind to visions and dreams he showed me he had called me for His use, for His purpose for ministry to be a servant of the Lord. I first thought “Me” Lord really, I never would have thought so I was so excited upon waking up when I had my calling dream seeing myself on  televised stage praying and binding the enemy I then immediately text close family members that I finally realized what the Lord has called me to do! However,  there response wasn’t what I expected no one really affirmed the dream at all then that’s when my doubting came in.  So I began to seek the affirmation  & confirmation of men who didn’t seem to see the call on my life. In the process continually rejecting what the Lord had shown me in dreams and spoken to me about in his word. Hence, rejected him over and over.

I remember having a clear vision of me running after crowds of people for a word of affirmation, confirmation as to who they think that I am and seeing the Lord  far from me left all alone with his head down feeling neglected and rejected by me because to be honest his word wasn’t enough for me…sad but, true

I began to strive in all that I did so others would maybe see the anointing of God upon my life and if they praised me I was so excited and encouraged however, if they didn’t see it I would then be discouraged doubting that God has called me to use me.

John 12:43 – For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.


I remember even going to be counseled by an evangelist and she asked me what I was doing with my life and exciting told her God has called me for ministry and she asked how did I know. So I told her the Lord told me and he revealed it of course she paused for a moment then said sometimes we can interpret dreams wrong and that I shouldn’t be stagnant. I should start my business again, and if “I” want to go into ministry that I should take some bible course part time. To say the least I was confused, down trotted and utterly discouraged. However, the Lord reminded Nana again what did “I” tell you. Stop looking for the affirmation of men, pastors, prophets. I even had a dream where he was warning me about running too pastors and prophets he gave me the scriptures

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

When the Lord called me he told me to wait on him, so everyone thought I was crazy for just stopping everything I was doing and just wait. Family members unknowing and lovely tried to push me to do something rather than just sit and being idle or so they thought. Not knowing God has and is continuing to work on my heart, mind, soul and spirit daily to be more like him. He is trying and testing me I need to show myself approved ONLY to GOD and NO ONE ELSE! I was reminded when a pastor made a statement that if you take credit for failure doing the work of God then you will take credit for the success of the work of God. Wow, what a powerful statement and one I need to be reminded of everyday.

Galatian 1:10
10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

So what has the Lord said about YOU, that you are not believing, what labels have been put on you that you need to take off or better yet have you been seeking your purpose, your identity and calling through others or only by Jesus Christ? Its definitely a learning, stretching and growing process but Trust God, Trust what he speaks to you, what he shows you and what his word says. (preaching to myself right now hehe) The Holy Spirit is the best teacher so “He” will teach us and guide us into all truth and to know that we shouldn’t ever live to seek the approval of men but, only of God and guess what he says about you…. and me too APPROVED!  God bless you, Love you but, know he loves you more!

What Type Of Candle Will You Be In 2016?

 

16864223_300

I was talking to a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago and she stated how happy she was that the Lord brought me into her life because my passion and zeal for the Lord ignited her passion and zeal for the Lord which had got stagnant. I have also had the privilege of seeing this amazing change in her walk as the Lord ignited her desire for intimacy, spiritual revelations and gifts. Seeing her stepping out of faith to do what God ask, opening her mind again to dreams and visions, having a greater compassion for others and a unwavering boldness for the Lord like never before! I have been amazed at what the Lord has truly done and he reminded me that’s what it means to be ” a light of the world” , “a lampstand that gives light to all who are in the house” The Light we carry is not for ourselves not only to be a light to others around us but to ignite a fires in others as well so then WE become a city on hill that cannot be hidden!

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

The light in us is the holy Spirit which the spirit of the living God dwelling within us. The Holy spirit draws us to the father, testifies of Jesus Christ, changes you, convicts you, gives you spiritual gifts and gives you a hunger for the word of God. As our world gets darker our light gets brighter. The fire, the light of the living God inside of us which causes people to draw to you because they see a difference. They see that  Joy, Peace, love, wisdom and Fire for the Lord  and were called to turn them to Christ! However, so many Christians are comfortable being just being lights setting no one else

THE CANDLE WITHOUT A FLAME:

There are many believers of Jesus Christ but very few followers. You see there is two parts to our salvation. The Lord ask us not only to be hearers of the word but doers as well. You go to church every Sunday or when you can, do a few good deeds, pray when you can , don’t read the bible and think that’s good enough. You live like the world and state your RELIGION is Christianity. To be honest nothing in your life has changed to reflect you are a follower of Christ. Your flame is not lite because you have not surrendered fully to the Holy Spirit, you have not fully surrendered to God. This is what you call lukewarm and the scriptures state

Revelation 3:16
But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

You do nothing to impact those around you to bring them to Christ because you have no light yourself. You don’t live or are led by the Holy Spirit but by your flesh so therefore you are in darkness (Romans 8:6). You see Christianity is a relationship with Jesus Christ, a faith, a way of life not a religion. When you believe and surrender beginning to read his word (the bible) it changes you because that is what is word (the bible says) and that is exactly what it does because Jesus Christ is the word! ( John 1:1) You began to take him into you and he changes you inside out! If you identify with this candle don’t lose hope for Gods grace is on your life. Repent, tell the Lord you fully surrender to his will in your life. Laying down your dreams, ideas, will, everything and ask him to baptize you with the Holy Spirit. Then began to read his word the bible and watch you become in awe of what he does!

THE CANDLE WITH A BURNT OUT WICK:

2433549738_f9db57b9c8_b

This is the Christian who has gotten weary of well doing.

Galatians 6:9
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

They were on fire once but the road, the walk became to difficult so they decided to give up. Began to backslide follow there own ways of doing things and direction as well.  Or the cross you were given became to hard to carry. You unfortunately allowed the woes of this world, the heavy burdens, trials of this world to snuff out your light. Therefore you too are unable to impact those around you. To be honest some can become bitter, mean, resentful Christians as well. Even jealous of those who are on fire, warning them they too shouldn’t get excited warning them the walk with the Lord is hard and secretly hoping they will fall to the same demise. Rather than encouraging and building up. Therefore, they too are unable to impact those around them with the light of Christ. However, if you identify with this candle there is hope for you as well and Gods grace is sufficient! Draw back nearer to him, he has never left you nor will he. He is a worship and praise away from once again igniting your passion for intimacy with him. Know that he loves you right where u are at, knows your situation and has heard your cries. He has not forgotten about you look to him and know that he is still and will continue to be so in looooove with you!! (Romans 8:31-39) He actually learns for you more than you yearn for him!

THE CANDLE WITH A FLAME:

candle with flame

This one is interesting, yes we are called to let our light shine and quite a few Christians have their light shining in these last days which is amazing! However, the Lord had put it on my heart that there are too many Christians who have a lack of love for their neighbor,  strangers,  and the lost. They know that they are saved having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and are changed. However,  they’re complacent satisfied with their own salvation and that’s good enough but that is not good enough for the Lord. He gives ALL of us a commission. Not just preachers, pastors and evangelist but ALL his children too

Matthew 28:19
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

So we as we continue to ask the Lord to send revival, heal the sick, bless the poor, and to save souls. He looks at us saying I have sent you. You have the spirit of the creator of the living God, the power and authority to do all the works that he did and even greater he expects us to do! You either don’t know how to share your faith or  state you don’t feel  led to touch people, say anything, or bless someone. The Lord said they would know we were a disciples of Christ because of our love for one another to truly love one another! To know that people all around you are perishing for eternity yet you want to leave it to the pastors on Sunday to do that. No, the Lord calls US all to do that and not only to let our light shine but in WORKS (doing) is what would make people glorify the father. ( Matthew 5:16).  If you identify with this candle ask the Lord for wisdom to minister to everyone you meet. To set you a blaze being a sweet aroma to everyone you pass with his love, kindness, compassion, mercy and grace. Most importantly to give you boldness and courage this year to share your faith!

THE TORCH:

flaming torch

This is not just any Christian but the ones set on fire, sat a blaze by passion for the Lord and his word. Their one goal is to become a living sacrifice for the Lord. Not only do that have an intimate relationship with the Lord but they are so passionate about others experiencing a relationship with him as well. They are concerned for their brothers & sisters, their neighbors, the lost with compassion to see them be saved. Their excitement, joy, peace, wisdom & faith in the Lord and his ways set them apart. They are bold  & courageous for the things of the Lord however, walk in compassion, meekness and lowliness in all they do. The fire within them is so consuming with passion and love for the Lord that it lights up every wick (candle) that comes their way. Not only are they a light in a dark world but they are overflowing with the fire of the living which cannot be contained but only spreads to all those that come near it! You see if all Christians become torches then that’s how we become like the old church. Walking in authority and power turning the world upside down as was said about the disciples that came before us

Acts 17:6
But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too”.

2016 is going to be a turmoil year, as the world around us gets darker its time to set our fire a blaze and began to turn the world upside down with the powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ, The powerful action of love, compassion and kindness towards everyone, and the powerful act of full surrendering to the Lord in every area of your life. As you draw closer to the Lord in intimacy know that light in you is just not for you but for everyone else around you. To set them on fire too by sharing your testimony, your faith and the gospel with everyone. Most importantly tell them, tell everyone that God is crazy in love with them, to repent come out of their sin and that the kingdom of is at hand!

So what are you doing with your light this year?  If you really believe what are doing about it.Go out and set the world on fire for Jesus Christ!

Love you but know he loves you more. God Bless you!
