2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Today’s Inspiration: If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through the Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11. Hence you not merely bring your sinful side to the cross but discover every sinful behaviour and attitude and carry every practice to the cross. However this is still not sufficient as you still remain a functionally incapable person. More important than death to the negative, is resurrection to new life. Old life crucifixion must precede new created born again life. 2 Corinthians 5:17. Therefore if anyone is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come.
Sometimes we must be wondering why Jesus allows Judas to be the treasurer when he knows he could not be trusted and would betray him. It is so difficult to fathom what is God’s next strategy. We need to be alert and watchful. Before suddenlies come, we must be prepared for it. V21, 29.
We have entered into a new year 5780 last night and the word is to leave all our past behind as God is pouring out His spirit and life in the new decade will not be the same. In this new decade, God is going to assign tasks greater than before and unleashing our potential to equip ourselves for the spiritual war ahead of us. Moving into the prophetic and supernatural will be the divine order for the day. Faith will be enhanced.
Our miracle is connected to a seed. Our harvest of health has to be warred. We need to enter this decade with strong tools especially the tools that will connect us to the heavenly outpouring of His spirit that produces excellent results. So we hope to see you this Tuesday and Wednesday to usher in the new year of miracles.
Galatians 2:20 calls for declaration of a crucified life so that you can live a life of faith receiving daily His unconditional life for a life of breakthrough. It is not only the inner healing that we need but we must have understanding of what resurrection to life means. While we put death to old life we must replace it with new life.
There had been misconception that receiving Jesus’ forgiveness and forgiving others would result in abundant life. It is more the walk with Him that matters after our crucifixion. We cannot say we have recieved God’s unconditional love when we could not win human hearts enough to touch us and drawing us to move forward.
Our life needs spiritual truths but we also need natural truths. Life had to be balanced. He never intended us to be born again spiritually only. We need the nurture of a family of Christ. We pray this truth will awaken your consciousness and understand why you have cyclical problems despite being born again. Many didn’t realise the importance of our need for each other. This is why He emphasised so much on loving one another.1 John 4:11. Just as we need the love of God, we need the love of man. He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him nor the demonstration of His love for His people by helping them grow in Christ. We must show this diligence to the very end in order to make your hope sure. We should not idle with lame excuses but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what had been promised. Hebrews 6:10-12.
Salvation package covers more than eternal life. It covers living a totally wholesome resurrected life- a life of faith that grants you abundant life and joy.
The purpose of my workshop this Saturday is to discover why problems are cyclical and how to use past pain for a ministry that God has called you. Without going through pain there will be no resurrected power for His glory. Abraham received what was promised and stunned the whole world who desire what was promised. In this workshop we will cover the biblical significance of unconditional love and what it truly mean. Let this week be your spiritual emphasis week. God be praised.
