42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Today’s Inspiration: We live in a world of uncertainties, injustice, sorrow, broken lives, broken homes and broken ambition. People do not need sympathy or pity, they need comfort. The Church needs Divine comfort from the Holy Spirit to bring heavenly healing into their hearts. In Channel news Asia yesterday, the occult church in Korea has commanded a following of 300,000 people comprising also Christians who probably are not matured enough to discern between what is righteousness and what is wickedness which we are required to discern in Malachi 3:18. The occult church claimed that their success was due to the fact that they were able to fulfill the requirements of the people where the church failed to do so.
What exactly is the church not able to fulfill? This question the church needs to ponder. In my view, the church needs the gift of inspiration which in new testament are words of comfort, edification and exhortation. If there is anything people needs is comfort and inner courage to withstand the testing of our faith. Comfort includes healing of the inner person, healing of memories, healing of sadness and depression. This can be done through praised of God that brings healing, and through sincere fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the Body. Ministries of edification, exhortation and comfort should function in every fellowship and prayer group. Acts 2:42, 46.
As believers we do not boast what we could do but boast of the marvelous deeds of the Lord.
The fear of the Lord has been emphasised throughout scriptures. Isaiah 11:2 also stressed the spirit of the fear of the Lord be upon us as it was with Jesus and to delight in the fear of the Lord in Isaiah 11:3. We should not judge by what we see with our eyes nor decide by what we hear but with righteousness and Justice in v4.
Also we need to know if the school of remembrance has recorded our name. This scroll will record the names of those who fear the Lord and honors His name. Malachi 3:16. Only those whose names are in it are His treasured possession. The one who fear Him will be the ones who revere His name. Those who revere His name will receive healing, strength and vitality and will have Dominion over the enemies. Malachi 4:2-4.
God has given us Dominion in Genesis 1:28 when He created man and empower us to tread on scorpions and serpents and to overcome all the powers of the enemy. Nothing will harm us. Luke 10:18-19.
With all these empowerment, why should we fear? We are to be the light of the world to enlighten the dark world. There are so many spiritual gifts for us to apply as weapons of warfare and one of the greatest gifts of weapons of warfare is our proclaiming of His word to the world that will cause the enemy to flee. If we all proclaim in one unity for corona virus to be wiped off from the land He will do it provided if we have a pure heart and clean hands. Do we have a pure heart and clean hands to destroy the enemy? We also need to ask God to summon His angels to fight with us through the working of miracles. When His presence is magnified in our land, the working of miracles, another great weapon, will be in operation. It’s time to sanctify all our hearts wholly and blameless as a Body to see the enemy corona virus wiped out from this land. 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
We need to come as one body praying in unity declaring God’s power over our land. God’s promises that we will trample down the wicked, and they will be ashes under the soles of our feet on the day of His intervention will not return to Him void. Malachi 4:3, Isaiah 55:11. This is the time and season of restoring unity to the Body of Christ and restoration of families. This is the time where we value the lives of each other most. This is the time to surrender our whole life to the Lord as the life of men is fragile and is in God’s hands. This is the time to plead with God to strengthen our immune system and to normalise the functioning of the systems of our body to fight against the invasion of virus and to maintain emotional health. This is the time to heal all our past hurting memories and the inner healing of our soul.
It’s time to proclaim Divine health over the Nations through restoring to righteousness of God and fear of God in men. God be praised.
