Calling Out to Jesus



 Jesus and his disciples were leaving the city of Jericho, and a large crowd was on their heels. The people had seen the miracles Jesus had performed, many had heard him preach, and several were simply curious. But hundreds were moving down the dusty road toward Jerusalem.


You know how it is in a crowd—especially an anxious and excited crowd! Someone’s always stepping on someone else’s foot, a few children are always crying, and some are always angry because the crowd isn’t moving faster. This crowd wasn’t much different—except for the fact that Jesus of Nazareth was in the lead. He has the incredible ability to hear everything at once. And amid the shuffling of hundreds of feet, the laughter, and the three-way conversations, Jesus heard something else: two distinct cries from the side of the road.


These two men weren’t part of the crowd. It seemed impossible Jesus would hear them above the roar of those following, but they dared to call his name anyway because they desperately needed his touch.


“Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”


The crowd immediately shushed them. “Leave him alone. Be quiet! Jesus has important things to do. He’s on a mission.”


But the two men shouted even louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”


Jesus must have admired their persistence, because he stopped. He knew the two men were blind, but he still asked the obvious question, “What do you want me to do for you?” (If that seems like a silly question, flip back to the devotions found on If that seems like a silly question, flip back to the devotions found on February 15-22.)


If we put this scene under a microscope and take an even closer look, we’ll find some spiritual principles for our own lives.


#1: These two men sought after Jesus. He loves it when his children actively seek him. Do you casually shoot prayers toward heaven, or are you putting forth effort to communicate with Christ?


#2: Jesus stopped for them. He’ll stop for you, too, when you seek him with an honest and expectant heart. Isn’t it comforting to know that amid the crowds of people who are calling for the attention of Jesus, he still hears your cry? And he’ll always stop . . . just for you!


Know It!

Jesus Christ is crazy about you! Though his agenda is always full, you’re right at the top of the list!

Read It!

Matthew 20:29-34; Ephesians 1:19-23; 3:20-21

Pray It!

Tell Jesus how thankful you are that he cares for you the way he does!

Adhering to God’s Truth



Todd, you’re leaving in just a few minutes,” Brian said. “Will you listen carefully to what I’m saying?”


Todd sighed. “Sure, Bri. Go ahead.”


“Look, Todd, I know you think you’re a Christian because you believe . . . but believing’s not enough. Even Satan believes in God! You have a heart that God wants to use. But he needs all of it.”


“I just don’t wanna quit having fun.”


“Todd, you can still have fun—but the right kind of fun. I gotta tell you, man, I’ve never been more fulfilled than since I totally gave my life to Christ.”


“Yeah, I’ve heard it all, Brian. But I’m not sure I can quit doing the stuff I know God doesn’t want me to do.”


“Todd, do you realize what Jesus says about those who play the game?”


“Whaddya mean?”


“Riding the fence—having a foot in the church and a foot in the world. He calls it being lukewarm.”


“That’s like room temperature, right?”


“Yeah, sort of. It’s a combination of hot and cold. He tells us to make a decision—to be really hot, or to go ahead and just be cold. But if we’re lukewarm (if we’re in the middle), he’ll spew us from his mouth.”


“Spew?!? What . . . you mean like . . . vomit?”


“Yeah,” Brian said. “That’s pretty strong, huh?”


“Sure is,” Todd agreed. “Okay, here’s the deal, Bri. I’m scared. I’m afraid if I make a total commitment to Christ, I’ll fail. I’m human, man! What if I blow it?”


“That’s where forgiveness comes in. When you approach God with a repentant heart, he’ll forgive.”


“You mean, I won’t have to start all over again?”


“No, Todd, you don’t have to start over again. If you’re truly repentant and genuinely desire to follow Christ with all your life, he’ll forgive you when you ask. At that point, you accept his forgiveness and keep walking with him.”


“That’s what I want, Brian! That’s what I really want!”


“Are you willing to give God all of your life—even the stuff you know doesn’t please him?”


“Yeah, I am, Brian. I said it was fun . . . but it’s also miserable at the same time. I’m tired of the guilt. If God can really equip me to live the way he wants me to live, I’m ready to give him everything.”


Know It!

God doesn’t expect you to be perfect, but he does expect obedience and commitment.

Read It!

1 John 1:5-6; 2:1-2; Revelation 3:15-16

Pray It!

Thank Jesus for his forgiveness and his desire to help you be all he calls you to be.

Returning to Emotional Love


 

 Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18

Falling in love is a temporary experience. It is not premeditated; it simply happens in the normal context of male-female relationships. What many people do not know is that it is always temporary. The average life span for being “in love” is two years.


The “in love” experience temporarily meets one’s emotional need for love. It gives us the feeling that someone cares, that someone admires and appreciates us. Our emotions soar with the thought that another person sees us as number one. For a brief time our emotional need for love is met. However, when we come down off the emotional high, we may feel empty. That’s sometimes accompanied by feelings of hurt, disappointment, or anger.


If emotional love is to return to your relationship, it will require each of you to discover and speak each other’s primary love language. As we’ve discussed, there are only five basic languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time, and physical touch.


The apostle John recounted an important truth when he wrote his first epistle: Love can be expressed in words, but it is shown to be true through our actions. Learn the language of your spouse, speak it regularly, and emotional love will return to your marriage.


Lord God, I want us to feel strong, emotional love as a couple again. Please help us reach that point by committing to loving each other by our actions, not just our words. Help us to learn each other’s love language and speak it well.

Why Do Life Get Worst Instead Of Better After Praying?

 

Have you ever wondered why most people pray almost everyday of their lives and instead of getting better their situations gets worse?


We will talk about that later but hear this "When you live in Sin you are by your own self removing the hedge God placed over your life and giving the devil access to come and be playing gamble with your destiny and the day he shouts LAST CARD you are gone."


IS DRINKING ALCOHOL BAD?

I want to discuss and clear this issue by the wisdom of the Holy Spirit about alcohol. You see many of us destroys our lives by ourselves, God is not a custodian of destruction but of blessings.

When you tell someone that drinking alcohol is wrong they will quote the Bible for you that says "Drink but don't be drunk". Many say when their head is full they just take one bottle to stay calm, some say when they drink they feel more happy... NONSENSE.

I was once addicted to drinking Vodka and liquor before believe me there's no joy there but destruction.

Christians always find excuses to justify their sinful nature...

Studying my Bible the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to a deep revelation that explains this.

Proverbs 20:1  "Wine is a MOCKER, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." - KJV

Now You See that WINE is a mocker which means of a lesser quality so if you engage in it you are removing the greatness God placed in you and becoming a less being. You might say you are rich so it doesn't make you less well Riches are not measured by things that pleases the flesh but in things that edify the Spirit of God in you.

Now see this:
Proverbs 19:29 "Penalties are prepared for the MOCKERS, and beating for the back of fools." - NIV

When you give yourself to wine you become a MOCKER(Less Quality Being) right.. Now the Bible made it clear in the scripture above that penalties awaits you in this condition... What are the penalties you may want to ask.

Proverbs 23:29 "Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
v 30  - They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine."

It was made clear here that SORROW, WOE, BABBLING, WOUNDS, REDNESS OF EYES will fall upon those that seek MIXED WINE.

You're still not convinced right? Don't worry just say inside of you "Holy Spirit fill me up".

NOW WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF THIS WINE (ALCOHOL)

Does it really give Joy, rest of mind, peace, happiness? Let's see what the Bible says.

Proverbs 23:32-34  "At the last it BITETH like a SERPENT, and stingeth like an adder.
Thine eyes shall behold STRANGE WOMEN, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast."

Holy Spirit help us...

Can you see. This is the point when you say "omo I Don HIGH", a point when you think about Sex, it becomes a poison inside of you that's why most people throw up in this case (that's what poison does), You will think you are in the middle of the sea (when you get drunk you can sleep anywhere)...

Friends if I continue am not sure you will be able to keep reading because I just focused on the book of proverbs to explain this to you there are other Books in the Bible that warns about this.

The devil has found out that the people of this generation are so ignorant so he is also using ALCOHOL as a device to kill their spirit. Check every where in your city beer parlors, Night clubs are all big businesses helping the devil to promote his device of destruction.

....
I know am not your Pastor neither am I your Bishop but with tears 😢 😭 and a heavy heart I pray for you; every Alter of drinking that the devil have raised over your life to stagnate your destiny be pulled down today by the power of the Holy Ghost. You can say you don't know how to stop it but I tell you it's not in your power to do that just cry and say Holy Ghost come and help me.

Your own part to play in this change is to abstain from anything and separate from anyone that makes you fall for this. I bless your heart and I pray you get drunk in the Holy Ghost...

....
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this article till the end I so much appreciate your time and I know this have blessed you.

Please help share this article to as well reach others on your timeline or groups who needs to be restored from this siege.

God bless you.


Why You Should Pray Today!!!

 

Why You Should Pray Today!!!

Good day God's precious people. Happy new month to you.

I feel we should touch this briefly and trust God to help us maximize the power of praying intentionally and early too.


This is not another mystery on the art of prayer as am aware we have prayer generals in the house. But rather to stir up our spirits to the urgent demand for prayers in this season.

Two nights ago as I maintained the "cross over" prayer in my room, I was shown something like a prayer ground. It was more like a Mount of Prayer, and I knew I was not the only believer praying that night when i saw brethren calling on the Lord at midnight. However, this deep moment of prayers was interrupted by the dark side as some agents of darkness were on ground to hinder believers from praying. Long story made short, some wonderful believers began to struggle to pray, while some prepared for themselves where to lay down and sleep (On the Mount).


Beloved I realized that these dark forces were out for one mission: STOP THEM FROM PRAYING


The Dark Side understand the effect of a fervent prayer from a believer, and they know that the best form of defense is to ATTACK.  


Brethren, this is not to teach us as though you don't know this things, for you yourself know that life itself is SPIRITUAL. For the Great One who created all things is Spirit. And even our common enemy Satan is not flesh and blood "For we do not  wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in high places. EPHESIANS 6:12"

Nothing is too small to pray about. If you know how intentional Satan is about your life my sister before you even learn a trade you will learn to pray. Brother if only you understand that certificate don't make men in the kingdom before you get a degree you will kneel to decree. 


Me am learning to pray about everything ooo, i mean even if a fine sister says she likes my personality, she has just given me work to do in the closet, so before i start binding negative thoughts from my head i should launch attack. A colleague told me some farmers have started preparing for next year's harvest NOW.  And then i got the message in my spirit. It seems to me like the farming season in the spirit for this year has come to an end, and Men are pressing in the secret for next year. Your New year resolutions for 2021 would mean nothing if you fail to PREPARE NOW for next year.


Aunty, the wedding didn't work out this year, what makes you think it will next year? Every year is alike, there is no special year, didn't you see how 2020 turned out to be? If next year must be different for you and your household please start Preparing Now.


For us here we are praying-in the souls for next year NOW.

That house, marriage, job, health, prosperity, whatever you desire from God tomorrow, pray about it TODAY.

Do not wait till new year's eve....PRAY TODAY.

Blessings for Obedience or Curses for Disobedience

Blessings for Obedience or Curses for Disobedience


 “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.” DEUTERONOMY 28:1


Blessings for Obedience or Curses for Disobedience Deut 28:1-68


When God made his covenant with the Israelites, he gave them commands to follow and then told them what would happen whether they were obedient or disobedient to those commands. These were not bribes and threats. God wanted the people to know the truth about choices and consequences. Obedience to God results in good things. Disobedience always leads to trouble.

Many people have misunderstood the blessings and curses listed in Deuteronomy. Throughout history people have thought of disease and disability as the result of personal sin or a lack of faith in God. This is not true! Sometimes bad things just happen in our fallen world. A car slides on unseen ice and grievous injuries occur. Cancer comes unannounced, turning the ordinary into a life-changing chaos of diagnoses and treatments. 


A simple mistake (as when Joni Eareckson Tada dove headfirst into water without first confirming the depth) brings irreversible paralysis. Such events, while under the sovereign eye of God, are not curses from God; rather, these tragedies often have no relationship to sin or disobedience. On the other hand, behaviors do have consequences, and disability itself can be the result of sinful acts, such as when someone’s anger causes injury to those around them.

Therefore, if you are facing any kind of difficulty, it’s always good to ask yourself, “Is there any sin I have not confessed? Have I done evil which could bring affliction into my life?” Examine your own actions and motives. And ask God about it. 

He will convict you of sin and help you remove it. He will also be with you and uphold you in times of trouble as you rely on him. Take comfort in the fact that no matter what suffering you face, even if you can trace your suffering to personal sin, God always intends to use it for good.

Spiritual Levels Between A Man And A Woman.

 You can agree with me that the spirituality of men are diverse. Thought we were created as ONE in the image of God but not all of us carry the person of GOD.


Spirituality of a man's life is the ability to hear directly from God and execute his dealings on earth.
Spiritual Levels Between A Man And A Woman.

I know many people don't like reading long posts so let me dive into the light.

God created Man through DUST but he created a Woman through BONE. You see there's a level of strength here in the woman.

God knows that man being in union with a woman (Marriage) will be prone to lots of evil so he said I quote "...i will make you (man) a help mate".

The serpent approached Eve (Woman) because he knows that through her he can easily penetrate the heart of The Man.

Samson was a strong Man but at the introduction of De
Spiritual Levels Between A Man And A Woman.


Dear women/ladies the level at which the devil is roaming around you from the marine kingdom to the air is very deep. If only you will understand that as a WOMAN your VISION (God's Divine plan for your life) is linked more to drawing Men (the lost ships) to the Kingdom than drawing eye pencil accurately from one edge to the other. (Note: I never spoke against drawing of eye pencil).

You are a Divine vessels for God, there are hidden giants in you that's why you have more access to the world than men.

Men are strong spiritually but with a WIFE who helps them grow they shall be army's for the Kingdom.

I leave you with this:
Don't be a woman who hides her LIGHT in the the dark, be a woman who's aim is to be a great WIFE and spread the Gospel like a WI-FI.

God bless you.

I remain Stephen Chuka, Your friend, brother and neighbor.

I pray that your light will shine more than the shooting stars.

Amen.

Relationship With God

If you pray many hours in tongues just for Power... You do not have a Relationship with God.

Relationship With God

If you spend time praying just because of power, encounters that will make you famous and revered... You do not have a relationship with God.

If you fast for just for anointing... You do not have a Relationship with God. If your midnight prayers is so that you have something "deep" to show in the morning... You do not have a Relationship with God.

If your many hours with the word is for Rhema and deep insights which you will use to elevate yourself before men... You do not have a Relationship with God.

You attend meetings for just  impartation ,to perform like others... You do not have a Relationship with God. You travel from city to city to see more and hear more... You need a Relationship with God.

When Women Pray

 These are terrific seasons for the appearances of Praying Women, the appearance of Women Gates, Mothers of territorial travails, Priestesses of The God Kind, judges of the Deborah order, daughters of Agabus, women who will lend God their womb to corridor the next Samuel, the next Timothy, the next Graham and a Host of Generals Into this side of eternity..


When Women pray, strong territorial walls are broken, limitations are lifted...

When women pray, fresh hunger is programmed and the church is further brought in her fullness and seasonal office of operation...
When women pray, families begin to align to the Word of God...
When women pray,  covenants with ancestry is broken, captives are set free, even the unborn and invisible generation are preserved from the lurking wickedness of mankind...
When women pray, the prey of the mighty is delivered..
When women pray, school girls begin to have encounters with the Spirits of just men made perfect...

When women pray, the market place would cease to be the place where dark powers triumph, the Holy Ghost becomes the supervisor of marketing operations...

When women pray, our teenage girls would be so on fire, transforming into Holy epistles, mobile alters and presence centers, they would pray until the spirit of whoredom is expelled from our campuses, streets and homes..

When women pray,  the church will love to pray again,
When women pray Like Mama Anna,  Jesus will be brought into the church again..
When women pray, that influence of that old spirit 'jezebel' shall be shut down...

When women pray the lives of our sons will become pipes, conduits and annexes to bring deliverance to our nation.
When they pray,  the mystery that render men infidels and vagabonds shall be obliterated.

When women pray, The nations are delivered from the tongue of leviathan, set loose from the grip of the dark angel and the armies of the aliens are put to flight. 

When women pray, the new order and kind of Women begin to rise... women portals begin to show up and shut down the voice of lying prophets who have not spoken by the Rod of The Lord.

The Abigails,
The Anna,
The Judiths, 
The Widow of Zeraphat ordained to house prophetic visitations in a territory..

When women pray they secure the anointing, The DEBORAH'S order of the Anointing.

Forgiving as God Forgives

 

Forgiving as God Forgives

 Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. Matthew 6:11-13

There is a difference between acceptance and forgiveness. You may accept many things about your spouse that you do not particularly like, such as a habit that you find annoying. In fact, such acceptance is necessary in healthy marriages. But wrong, unfair, or unjust treatment—which the Bible calls sin—cannot be accepted. Sin needs to be forgiven.

When a spouse continues to persist in sinning, the relationship will be strained. Ideally the wrongdoer will confess his or her failures and request forgiveness. 

That’s the biblical model. When we choose to forgive someone, we are saying, “I will no longer hold this sin against you. I will respond to you as though it had not happened. I will continue working with you on our relationship. I love you.”

But what are we to do when our spouse does not confess wrongdoing and, in fact, persists in sinful behavior? We are to release the person to God, along with our anger. Then we are free to return good for evil and thus have a positive influence on our spouse.


The challenge of Scripture is to forgive one another as God forgives us. Jesus stated this plainly when he taught his disciples what we know as the Lord’s Prayer. 

The concept is echoed other times, including in Ephesians 4, where Paul tells his listeners to “be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32). Our goal is clear, but we may need to learn how to get there.


Father, I can’t thank you enough for your glorious forgiveness through Christ. It’s an amazing gift. Since you have done this wonderful thing for me, I know that I, too, need to forgive those who sin against me. Please help me as I strive to be better at forgiving my spouse when I need to. Thank you.
