Heaven on Earth

Unknown to many of us, when we pray what is generally referred to as the Lord’s Prayer, which is better to be described as a model of prayer, what we are doing is a declaration of war – that as things are in Heaven, so they should be right here on earth. That is huge. You are saying that the evil on earth be replaced with the serenity and splendor of heaven, that darkness be replaced with light and so forth. This is profound.

In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
Mat 6:9-10

Time To Man Up

The culture and the media has so relegated the role of the man in the home and the society so much that even the men are themselves out of tune with the reality of who they are.

The absence of real men at their duty posts in the home has led to the sliding down of the moral standards in the society.

Today, four in ten of homes are without a dad. But the statistics are graver among African Americans, where as many as seven out of every ten homes are without a dad. Children are raised by single moms, and in many cases, by grandparents. All of this has come to compounds high school dropout rates and failure rates, and highlights a need to challenge our men to man up.

Unleashing The Power Within

If there is one thing you must learn, it is that you will determine whether or not the life of God flows into, or is blocked away, from your flesh. Without a doubt, this can very well be the most profound lesson you need to learn. This truth will transform your life, give you better grasp of the Word of God and your perception of God.

Let me begin by reminding you that if you are born again, the same power that raised Christ from the dead is resident within you. When you got saved, the Holy Spirit came to take residence in your spirit. You therefore have, regardless of how you feel; joy, peace, and love in your spirit, even though you may be feeling unhappy, depressed, bitter or even angry. It is very important that you grasp this very fact.

Glorious Mom

There is one irreversible truth: None of us would be here without our moms. Moms are the ones that carried us all in their wombs; they were the ones subjected to indescribable body changes. And in those early months of our fragility, mothers were the ones there to nurse us to strength. And through many periods of sickness and hospital visits, there were usually none but the moms alone that were there with many of us. Now don’t get me wrong. I recognize that not all mothers are perfect. In fact, I’m aware that there are certain moms that are far from the norm. There ever remains one indisputable truth; they are the divine channels through which we all came and without them none of us would be here. It sure isn’t fair to throw away the baby with the bath water. Honor must be given to whom it is due. We thank God for you and although we might not say it as often as we should, we know you are all so special, so wonderful, so precious, so kind, so trusting, so sacrificial…..On behalf of all living beings, accept our appreciation today and every day.

Dominion

“Then God said, “Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
– Genesis 1:26-28

Dominion begins with knowledge.

The original dominion was given to Adam in the Garden when he was asked to be fruitful and to multiply and to replenish the earth, and to subdue it and have dominion over it. Man however lost his dominion in Adam’s treasonable felony, when he fell to Satan’s trickery. Adam knew God’s instructions not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which would result in sure death (Genesis 2:17). However, when the woman ate the fruit and gave it to him to eat, he did eat. Immediate change ensued.

Unlock The Resurrection Power In You

If there is one thing you must learn, it is that you will determine whether or not the life of God flows into, or is blocked away from your flesh. This may very well be the most profound lesson you need to learn. This truth will transform your life, and give you a better grasp of the Word of God and your perception of God.

Let me begin by reminding you that if you are born again, the same power that raised Christ from the dead is resident within you. When you got saved, the Holy Spirit came to take residence in your spirit. You therefore have, regardless of how you feel: joy, peace, and love in your spirit, even though you may be feeling unhappy, depressed, bitter or even angry. It is very important that you grasp this very fact.

It’s A New Era

The third chapter of the book of 2nd Corinthians is loaded with blunt points: All the laws of God and Moses, including the ten commandments have all been fulfilled in Christ on the cross. We are now under a new and better covenant: full of grace and love, rather than vengeance and condemnation (Heb 12:24).

God has made us able ministers of the New Covenant. If the old covenant of death, written and engraved in stones—that is, the ten commandments—was glorious, and made the face of Moses to shine such that people couldn’t look at his face, how much more glorious do you perceive the magnitude of the glory of ministration of righteousness! A more excellent glory arrived in Christ.

O friend, for emphasis, the old testament has been abolished. It has been done away with (2 Cor 3:6-15). Eph 2:15 says:

“Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace.”

This was also reiterated in Col 2:14-17. You are not under the laws and ordinances of the old covenant. It has been done away with and abolished in its entirety and replaced with the better and gracious new covenant at Calvary. (Exo 24:12, 31:18, 32:15; Dt 4:13, 5:22, 10:4).

Broken For God’s Use

Brokenness doesn’t sound like a sweet subject to talk about, but it is very powerful. It is one of the greatest lessons you could ever learn if you want to be used by God.

To be “crushed” literally means to be shattered; to crumble and break into pieces. This brings to mind the words of Alan Redpath:

“When God wants to do an impossible task, he takes an impossible man, and crushes him.”

That’s just like God, isn’t it? But why? “That no flesh should glory in His presence.” – 1Cor 1:29.
