Decree a thing!

on Jun 27 in Christian Lifestyle, Uncategorized, Word of God tagged by admin

“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee…” (Job 22:28)

To decree a thing means to authoritatively order or instruct with the force of law. Revelation 1:6 shows us that God has made us kings and priests. And one of the characteristics peculiar to Kings is the power to decree.

As God’s king-priests, we have been put into office to decree anything we want to see established in our lives and in the lives of men, for “where the word of a king is, there is power…” (Ecclesiastes 8:4).

The Church wields so much power that many Christians are yet to discover. As kings, we’ve been called into the life of the supernatural; we have more than enough power to do whatever we want to do. All we need is to have enough knowledge of who we are and what we have in God. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “but ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people…”

It’s your responsibility to bring to pass whatever you want to see happen in your life; to decree the things you want and have them established unto you. You’ve been vested with enough power and authority to influence the world!

Speak the Word!

“…whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.” Ecclesiastes 10:8
Many have erroneously thought it was God who permitted satan to buffet Job and make him suffer so he would be humble. That’s not true! Job was a man whom God had greatly blessed and protected (Job 1:2-3,10). But despite God’s protection over his life, which even satan attested to, Job lamented,”…that which I was afraid of is come unto me. I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came” (Job 3:25-26).
The reality is that Job’s fear was his undoing! He created a platform for the devil to come in and run rampage in his life by voicing his fears. Fear hinders faith; it is actually negative faith; it’s a demonstration of faith in the ability of the adversary to hurt you.
The moment Job started talking his fears he was digging holes in the protective hedge God had built around him. He delivered his goods to the devil through the perverseness of his lips–by talking and acting fear.
Never talk fear or give voice to words inspired by fear. Continually fill your heart with the Word of God, “…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45). When you fill your heart with the Word, your mouth will of necessity speak from the rich deposit of the Word in your spirit.

Never Be Ashamed!

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.” (1 Samuel 2:8)

Many live their lives in sadness and gloom because of the circumstances of their birth. Some are too discouraged to have hope for a bright future because they were born into a poor family, city or country. They assume all is lost for them, but that’s not true!

When you’re in Christ, it makes no difference what the social or financial status of your earthly parents is, or the economic situation in the country. It doesn’t count anymore. There’s no rule or law anywhere, which states that a person who was born in a palace will do better than the one born in the countryside. In fact, the worse the circumstances of your birth, the greater the potentials of your testimony!

Peradventure you came from a very poor, terrible-looking home, don’t be ashamed of it. Rather from there, walk your way upwards! Make up your mind, you’re going to be so successful and you’ll move everybody out of that place into a better place.

Be glad about the home you are from, thank God for it. That’s where God located you. It’s part of your glory and testimony.
Hallelujah!

Search the Scriptures

on Feb 18 in Christian Lifestyle tagged by admin

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11)

Some Christians are often confused as to how to study the Bible; they wonder if they’d have to read from Genesis to Revelation, memorizing every verse. Not necessarily; there’re several ways you can study the Scriptures, however, a good place to start would be for you to be consistent in your study of the “Rhapsody of Realities” daily devotional.

In it, there’s a very simple but effective method for you to study the Scriptures and go through the entire Bible—from Genesis to Revelation—using the one-year or two-year study plan.

Also, you can also study the Bible in several other different ways that’ll help you learn several things, for example, every time you listen to God’s Word preached or taught like you’re learning now on this website, take note of all the references that are given from the Scriptures. Then, during your personal times of study, diligently go back to those references and study them. When you do this, they’ll become a part of you, because you can immediately identify them and link them with certain topics that were discussed.

Note, however, that even when you read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation at one time, that still wouldn’t be enough; you’ve got to keep at it. The Word of God is fresh every day; it’s undated and never stale. It’s your sole requirement for an effective and balanced Christian life. Therefore, the amount of time you invest into searching the Scriptures and learning the Word is never too much or wasted; it’s time well spent. So be diligent at it.

Dominate Your World

on Jan 14 in Christian Lifestyle, Uncategorized, Word of God tagged by admin

“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:6).

In Revelation 5:10, the Bible says God has made us “…kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” This is powerful! To understand what God had in mind when He made us Kings, let’s observe something striking about the first man, Adam.

The Bible says God made Adam in His own image and likeness – to look and function like Him. Have you ever wondered how God functions? He is the great God of glory; the King of kings. By His words, He created the entire universe, and in Genesis 1:26-28, we read that He made the first man Adam, to be a King just like Himself, to reign and subdue everything in the earth.

We’ve been given great authority to dominate our world. We can subdue systems, ideas, laws, and traditions that are contrary to the Gospel, and establish God’s will in the earth. As Kings, we can decree a thing and have it established unto us. “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?” (Ecclesiastes 8:4). That’s the way we rule and reign with Him in the earth today. Hallelujah!

Upgrade through the Word

on Aug 31 in Christian Lifestyle tagged by admin

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified (Acts 20:32)

At certain times, we feel obliged to upgrade our equipment and devices, such as cars, computers, phones, or even our wardrobe. While this is commendable, we ought also to give greater attention to upgrading our lives. This is only possible through God’s Word. The Word of God has been given to us to transform and renew our minds, and upgrade our lives from one level of glory to the next.

Give more attention to the Word; study and meditate on the Scriptures. Proverbs 4:20 says, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.” It doesn’t matter what state you’re in right now, if you’d give yourself wholly to the Word, it’ll upgrade you spiritually, mentally, financially and physically; your whole life will be improved!

The Word of God is a life-builder; you can confidently entrust your life to the Word; it’ll build you up, deliver your inheritance to you, and catapult you from one level of victory and success to another level.

2 Corinthians 3:18 tells us, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

True Humility

on Aug 17 in Christian Lifestyle tagged by admin

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6)

Humility is a quality of the recreated human spirit that attracts divine favour and promotion. It’s a vital force which enables you to respond with absolute submissiveness to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, through the Word of God. It’s often expressed in action by the willingness to take on the responsibility of service to others, in loyalty to the Word.

The Lord Jesus lived a practical example of what true humility is. First, He demonstrated His total submission to the will of the Father as it is written in Hebrews 10:7: “Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.”

Secondly, the Bible tells us in Philippians 2:6-9, that though He was equal with God, He didn’t count His equality with God anything to latch on to. Rather, He made Himself of no reputation, taking upon Himself the form of a servant, and became obedient unto death. For this reason, God exalted Him and gave Him a Name that is above every name.

As Christians, we ought to emulate the humility of Christ. True humility for us is to be submissive to the Lordship of the Word of God. So you’ve got to know the Word, and let the Word guide your thoughts, words, and actions. That’s the way to be submissive to Jesus, for He is the Living Word.

That’s the way we rule and reign with Him in the earth today. Hallelujah!

Stay Focused

on Jul 26 in Christian Lifestyle tagged by admin

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62)

The Living Bible gives a clearer picture of our opening verse: “…Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God.” The work God has planned for you to do is very important and He doesn’t want you distracted from finishing it.

A distraction is an obstacle to attention; it is that lingering concern that takes you away from the things that really matter to God.

Don’t be so distracted by your “needs” to the point it becomes all you pray, talk and think about! That’s a distraction. The Bible says, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalms 37:4). If you refuse to worry, but rather delight yourself in serving the Lord, everything will fall into place for you; He’ll surely grant your heart’s desires.

Refuse to be taken by the cares of this life. There’s so much of God’s work to be done.

True Humility

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name” (Philippians 2:8-9)

Humility is a quality of the recreated human spirit that attracts divine favour and promotion. It’s an inner ability–a vital force–which enables you to respond with absolute submissiveness to the Lordship of Jesus Christ through the Word of God. It’s often expressed in action by the willingness to take on the responsibility of service to others, in loyalty to the Word.

As Christians, the Scriptures enjoin us to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God that we might be exalted in due time (1 Peter 5:6). We’re to have the mind of Christ and emulate His humility. This means you’ve got to know the Word and let the Word guide your thoughts, your words, and all you do. That’s the way to be submissive to Jesus, for He is the Living Word. And just as Jesus was exalted for doing the Father’s will, you too will be promoted from glory to glory.
