The Death is a Potting Soil For Resurrection Life

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw in our last discussion that the power to work miracles comes not by man’s righteousness. God does not move on our behalf because we are holy but because, when we believe in Jesus, his righteousness becomes our righteousness which is the reason God works miracles in and through us.

The the apostle Paul opens up something striking in the next verse;

Galatians 3:8
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Observe the first words “And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith”

The scripture foresaw? Does the scripture has eyes?

The entire word of God is Christ. The word is living and powerful. The word, right from Genesis saw that we would be justified before God by faith and not by our works.

Hence we hear;

“preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed”

Preached the gospel unto Abraham?

A lot of people think the gospel of grace is a new school gospel. Something that has come into being nowadays. Remember we have established earlier in chapter one that there are no gospels in scripture. There is only one gospel which is the gospel of the grace of Christ and it is not a new gospel.

This is the gospel that saved Abraham and his descendants and it is the gospel the has the power to save all sinners.

God himself preached the gospel of grace to Abraham. This is no new Gospel. Abraham heard the grace of Christ and believed.

God preached to him saying “In thee shall all nations be blessed”

In thee? Yes, in Christ shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, not just the natural is Israel but the entire world would be blessed in Christ the seed of Abraham.

Observe carefully the language, it does not say all nations will be blessed in themselves but “in thee” the blessing is not ourselves, it is not from us, it does not come by us but the blessing is in Christ. Christ is the blessing, when we are in him we are I the blessing.

Then he goes on to say;

Galatians 3:9
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

You desire the blessing? It comes by faith in what Christ has done and nothing else.

This is the gospel that was preached to Abraham, therefore, we are blessed with faithful Abraham when we look to Jesus by faith as our righteousness.

But when we desire to go the way of works we are told;

Galatians 3:10
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

When we are not satisfied with the fact that the blood of Jesus has washed us and has made us whole. That we are today righteous by the blood of Jesus even forever. When we say no to this and run back to observe a little portion of the 613 laws to appease our ego that we are somewhat good, that we can deserve something by our good works we fall into the curse.

Why? Because God has already found fault with us by the standard of the law, the law has already judged us guilty;

Hebrews 8:8
For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Observe the first statement “For finding Fault with them”

God has already found fault with us. This is why Jesus established the new covenant to help guilty sinners.

If God has said I have already found fault with you to which is the reason for me bringing in the new by my son, why fight against God judgment?

The scriptures cannot be broken. We are are forever guilty before God, only by Christ are we spotless before God.

Going back to be justified by works is calling God’s judgment a lie which is the reason for empowering the curse upon any who does that.

You are making the death, burial, resurrection of Jesus a vain thing. Dishonouring God and trying to establish your own righteousness.

This is why God says you must continue in all things written in the law. In other words you must be perfect in yourself

But we we hear;
Galatians 3:11
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Observe the last statement carefully, the Just live by faith and not by their works.

When the just go back to live by works, they are counting themselves unjust before principalities and powers. The devil knows this. When you count yourself unworthy by going back to works the enemy actually has you were he wants you to be.

You have deprived yourself of the full blessings of redemption.

We are to live by faith but the law is not of faith.

Galatians 3:12
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

When we look to our works we are far from faith, when we look to Jesus we are in the faith of God.

What was preached to Abraham was not that all nations shall be blessed in the law but the all nations of the earth shall be blessed in thee, that is in Christ.

Therefore, when you live in the law, you are outside the blessing, you are living in the curse of the law. But when you live in Christ, you are in the blessing, blessed together with faithful Abraham.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord “I saw the dying of things in the life of a child of God. She was thinking it was a curse, that it was the beginning of something evil. That something evil would resurface.

But I saw things coming back with life, a different kind of glory. She was fearful but this was actually what the Lord had desired for her.

1 Corinthians 15:36-38
Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

Then the Lord said, ” It had to die, I know how much you have sown to reap. But I had to let it die for resurrection life to surface.

Do not be afraid, the death of things in your life is not my curse upon you, it is a potting soil for resurrection life.

I AM not doing what you think should be, but I am doing what you will love at the end.

I am giving every seed you have sown its unique life as I please, even a glory you will love. For I have desired wonderful things for you my Child.”

I Heard “Your Adversaries Won’t be Able to Catch Up With What I Am Doing” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Your Adversaries Won’t be Able to Catch Up With What I Am Doing

God is doing something, even though it is looking very tough. Light is surfacing, keep at it, you are already in a new season.

Yes, gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw in our last discussion from the third Chapter that the law rather empowers sin when we look to it for righteousness. When we seek to be accepted before God by our works we rather enter into bewitchment set for us by the Devil.

Now the Apostle says unto the Churches something he wishes them to reason on. He says;

Galatians 3:4
Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

We have to be gain minded. Most of us when we turned to Christ, we faced rejection from friends and even family members. We faced and still a lot of persecution for our faith. We suffer much but it is God’s will that these sufferings be attended upon with his gracious reward.

It is not as though our sufferings earn us rewards but it is a grace in us worked out as a proof of our salvation to which we ought not to let be in vain. Now we have accepted the grace of Christ, we will not frustrate it. We will not let it be in vain to which we are been persecuted.

Now look at the next verse;

Galatians 3:5
He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Observe carefully these first words “He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you”

The power to see miracles happen in our lives and others is the quest of every believer. This is why the enemy for a long time took over the scene.

I have heard teachings upon teachings, read books upon books that kept giving religious works as conditions to seeing the miraculous. They make seeing the miraculous look like something you have to earn by either prayer and fasting, self righteousness and the likes.

But here the Apostle asks a very shocking question “He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”

Wow, Paul is asking above that, does God supply the spirit to you and work miracles for and through you by your works or by faith in what you hear that Christ has done?

Every doctrine that sets up standards for us to qualify for the miraculous to be seen in our lives is erased by this statement.

God works miracles only by faith. When we believe in what Christ has done, Jesus becomes our qualification. God now works miracles in and through us by Christ and that’s all.

This was the secret of the apostles. If we must see the power and the miracles they saw we must also lean on their faith.

God has never done any miracle where any man has ever deserved it. God does miracles in the name of Jesus and no other name.

Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

No matter how good you make yourself, God will not look to you and give you salvation. You name is not in the equation for power, miracles and any other blessing.

God answers to one name and that name is Jesus. God does miracles when we put faith I that name and that’s all. This was the secret of the apostles.

Peter healed a man and people kept looking at them as though they did it because of their holy living.

Acts 3:12
And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

Peter knew better. God doesn’t work miraculous through anyone because he or she is holy or righteous. God answers to just one name, Jesus. When we believe in him, his holiness and righteousness becomes ours and starts speaking for us. This is what Peter said was their secret to power.

Acts 3:16
And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

And this is what the apostle Paul says was the secret of Abraham, when he believed in Christ, God counted him righteousness by his faith in his son;

Galatians 3:6
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

All these are people that shook the earth with their faith. They saw God do wonders through their faith in him in their day like no other. Faith in his goodness and not in their goodness.

Because of this, the apostle admonishes us to follow the Abrahamic kind of faith. If we believe the way he believed we will have the same results, even greater works. For he was not justified by works, but he believed in God that justifies the ungodly and God became his righteousness and did wonders in and through him.

Galatians 3:7
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

In an encounter with the LORD; I saw a Child of God in a football match. I saw as he approached the goal post with the ball. I saw him approach at two different times and at each of them he scored with a shot that was too fast the goalkeeper couldn’t even see the ball. All the time it happened too fast the goalkeeper could not see the ball. It was an exciting moment for this Child of God who was full of Joy.

Isaiah 60:20,22
Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time

Then the Lord said, “Son, your light has Come. The light you see piercing through your darkness is no longer what you used to see. It is beyond the natural light, it is beyond natural laws.

The sun and moon have their rising and setting times, but today I say you, your everlasting light has arrived. Your God is now manifesting himself to you as your everlasting light.

No more one step forward and two steps backwards. Your days of mourning are over, this is your day of rejoicing.

I am multiplying Zion, a little one is now becoming a thousand and a small one a strong nation. This is your hour, watch out now. See, your adversaries won’t be able to catch up with what I am doing with you, for I Am speedily fulfilling my word upon you.”

I Heard “Keep Proclaiming and Preparing, for Your Gift Comes” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Keep Proclaiming and Preparing, for Your Gift Comes

The kingdom is growing, but the How is taken away from us. If we are to look at how things are going to come into formation for the fulfilment of God’s word, it is clearly not possible to discern at the moment. The kingdom is manifesting but not by observation.

Yes, gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw from our last discussion that going back to earn righteousness by the law is living in utter foolishness and a life under bewitchment as the apostle Paul clearly declared.

Galatians 3:1-3
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? ]Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

I was under this bewitchment in my early Christian walk. I was thought you are saved by the grace of Christ but to be used of God, you have to be good enough for God to use you. I had so much desire to be used of God.

I was taught you have to be perfect, if you desire God to use you. When you do good God blesses you, when you do bad God curses you. You won’t sees miracles if you are not perfect. God won’t move on your behalf if he sees any spot on you. The Holy Spirit will leave you if you sin.

I had begun the race all in the Spirit. I received the Spirit of Christ, was born again but now I thought I was to be made perfect by the flesh. I thought works were the way to perfection.

I wanted to make myself perfect so God could use me. I didn’t know I was being foolish and walking under religious bewitchment. I started destroying everything I had that maybe one way or the other it may not perfect before God’s.

First I went back to when I was born, looked at by birth certificate and found some fault with it and I destroyed my birth certificate. As I write this to you right now what I use is an affidavit.

I began right from my bed, I burnt all my bed sheets, I burnt all my pictures, all the gifts people gave to be while I was an unbeliever that I thought may not be spotless, I burnt them. I took my car and gave out gave out to someone close, thinking I couldn’t use what I got from my past life. Since I was a sinner, it was also contaminated with sin.

Oh the devil had a show of me. I kept burning things and destroying everything I could possibly think I had while I was an unbeliever. Now it was remaining by school certificates. At this time I had graduated from the university and was serving my nation in the National Youth Service Corps program in Nigeria.

I left the state I was serving in and traveled miles to my state, went straight to my pastor to submit my documents and retire from the National Youth Service Corps since there was no way as an unbeliever I would have done all things from my nursery to university spotlessly.

My pastor as of then looked at me and said since I had brought the matter before the church and confessed I was forgiven that I should return. But I was not satisfied.

The devil kept telling me how can God bless you with this kind of certificate?

How can God use you now?

You will never be used by God. I would wake up in the morning and keep confessing my sins at every wrong thought, everything I saw that was negative, I would confess hundreds of times before the night would come. And when I was about sleeping I would confess and then ask God to take my life so I wouldn’t wake up the next day to break his law. I kept on living like this until I became tired and began to ask some questions.

I began to look at my life, how free I was as an unbeliever. But now that I am saved, even when I do good since I am not perfect, it doesn’t meet up and I am just getting deeper and deeper into to condemnation everyday.

Now I wanted to live the the Christian life for those who can and go back to my old way of life. Instead of a life of freedom this was rather bondage.

And this is what happens to many who come to Christ genuinely but the power of the law pulls them back to the world. The law rather hinders people from following God by empowering sin.

1 Corinthians 15:56
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

I do not understand how many people read their Bibles but it says above that the power of sin is the law.

The law empowers sin when you look to it for justification. When you want to be perfect by works, sin is empowered in your life. The law does not minister righteousness unknown to many. The law ministers death, not righteousness.

2 Corinthians 3:7
But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:

What is it that was written and engraven in stones? The Ten Commandments.

Some think when you talk of the law you are talking of the ceremonial laws. But that is false. The Ten Commandments, when you look to them to be righteous after you have received Jesus they minister death to you.

This was my case. The law ministered death to my relationship with the Lord, and I began to reason in my mind, maybe I should just turn back from following the Lord for i was seeing no meaning to all of it. I gave away everything, my entire old way of living but yet I was not qualified, I was daily living in guilt.

As these thoughts ran through my mind, I turned my Bible open one day and straight way the Holy Spirit led me to Galatians three. The Lord began to speak to my heart.

You foolish Jahfas, who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth? You have clearly seen in my word that I have died for you, washing you clean from all your sins by my blood.

Now tell me my son, how did you receive me?

Was it by works or you heard I paid the price and you believed?

I said Lord, I heard, believed and confessed you and received your Spirit.

Then he said, If that was how you received salvation. What makes you think you can now turn around and ear salvation that you already have by works?

I have already given you all things. When you received me you received everything. I am salvation. I am everything. Going back to earn me is foolishness and a doctrine of the devil.

As you have received me, continue in me and not in your works. Continue walking in me, looking to me for all things the same way you started.

Colossians 2:6
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

The same way you received me, even so, now walk in me.

From that day I began to shout looking at the scriptures. Scriptures began to open up to me like a fountain of water. I became literally crazy about Jesus. I felt that was the day I was truly born again. Here was I trying to run off and here I encountered my saviour

Oh words can’t explain. I began to take whole days just reading the scriptures. I couldn’t let go of the word even for a moment until now that I write this. I became addicted to God’s word. And I do not desire to be set free.

Now what I wanted to earn by works has come to me as a free gift by Christ. Instead of becoming more sinful since I have let go of the law, I am being transformed into the image of Christ daily.

Recently my wife sent me a text saying “I am so proud of the man God is turning you into”

Anger, resentment, fault finding, bitterness, envy, jealousy, and what have you, are being swallowed up by my daily looking to Jesus and discovering how much I am loved.

I am today bearing fruits unto Jesus. I have found a new way to bear fruit and that way is Jesus and not by the law. Not by works. All glory to God.

Philippians 1:11
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

I will daily look to Jesus, for there lies my hope and righteousness. I have come to understand by scripture and experience that there is nothing good in me.
But I am convinced that my God has already qualified me for every good work. As I look to him I am changed into the same image from glory to glory by the spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 3:18
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.

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a child of God as she was expecting a gift. The Chances of her receiving this gift were very slim from her perception. It looked as though it was impossible and it could only take a miracle to have her gift.

But as I saw her wait, suddenly I saw the Lord appear with her package, the enemy was there desiring to lay hold on it, but the Lord completely ignored him as he began setting up the place for her to enjoy this gift.

I was led to:

Isaiah 62:8-11
The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured: But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness. Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Then the Lord said, “By my right hand I have sworn, By my power I have sworn, I will no more give your provision to your enemies.

Whatsoever is meant for you am bringing it to you now by my power. The enemy will not touch that to which I have ordained for you.

The fruits of your labour you will eat. You Will gather all your harvest and make a feast before your God.

Do not be afraid, this is my oath upon you. As I do not change so this will never change.

Prepare, look expectantly, keep proclaiming and Preparing, for your gift comes, your salvation arrives. My reward and work I bring for you my child.”

I Heard “You are Already in the Hour Of Your Miracle” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

You are Already in the Hour of Your Miracle

There is a shakiness happening in the hearts of many that the door of promotion has been opened unto. This is because of the long wait and the instability in the way things have happened in this forgoing season. The way forward is to remain childish in our faith and to keep looking to God as he has declared a season of irreversible fruitfulness upon us.

Yes, gleanings from the Book of Galatians. Yesterday we looked at beautiful things from the second chapter. We saw that the real trade mark of the gospel is when carnally minded people actually deem what you preach as though you are promoting sin, which was the case of the Apostle.

And we saw that many today are frustrating the grace of God by going back to works salvation which actually is rather a sin against God.

Look at how the apostle begins to address this in the third Chapter;

Galatians 3:1
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

At first glance, when I saw this it sounded harsh to me, “O foolish Galatians? But this is not an insult, it is a declaration of their fallen state. They had left the place of wisdom and have now fallen into folly. Frustrating the grace of Christ by going back to the works of the Law is foolishness.

Then the Apostle says “who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth”

Observe carefully the word “bewitched.” A lot of people think witchcraft is just dark magic or some enchantment or divination. The most dangerous witchcraft and the hardest to overcome is the one found in our churches and right on our pulpits.

The Apostle Paul calls taking people back to live under works as bewitchment. You can actually be under witchcraft in the church and never find out because it is rapped up in the name of Jesus.

See, the devil knows that there is no direct enchantment or divination against the believer who knows his standing in Christ.

Numbers 23:23
Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

Hence, the real bewitchment towards us is when the enemy adulterates the scriptures. When we are finely deceived by mixing the old with new and sending us to go back to works after we have been saved by the grace of Christ is the strongest deception. This is so because it comes with some former truths.

The scriptures can be wrongly divided to prove their notion but that is the old truth. We are to be established in the present truth which is salvation by grace from start to finish.

2 Peter 1:12
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

So the Apostle says they were bewitched and were no longer obeying the truth of the Gospel. And what is this truth?

“Before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath being evidently set forth, crucified among you?

This is the truth, that the Apostle by the power of the Holy Ghost had presented the Gospel to them with evidence from the scriptures that Jesus had died for them fulfilling every demand of the law for their sakes, so why go back to trying to earn righteousness or trying to deserve God’s favour by the power of the flesh?

Galatians 3:2
This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Wow what a question! The Apostle asks the Galatian believers, how were you born again? How did you receive Jesus? How did you receive the Spirit?
Tell me, how many laws or how many works did you do to deserve Jesus?

How did you receive the Spirit? Was it by works? Or you heard that Jesus died for your sins and you believed and received him?

Was it by keeping the Law or by just hearing and receiving?

The answer to these questions is a breaker of the religious bewitchment. The Apostle is trying to establish here that if you did not do anything but received salvation just by hearing and believing, what makes you think you can now deserve something by your efforts?
If you received Jesus as a free gift from God, then it is the same way God gives you all things freely. If you received Jesus freely then all things are also to be received freely.

Romans 8:32
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Then he continues,

Galatians 3:3
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

This is where I encountered the Lord after my journey in works salvation. I had begun the race all in the Spirit. I received the Spirit of Christ, was born again but now I thought I was to be made perfect by the flesh. I thought works were the way to perfection.
I wanted to make myself perfect so God could use me. I didn’t know I was being foolish and walking under religious bewitchment……

I will fully share my experience under the law with us tomorrow…

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw some that had come to the place of taking over his territory and seeing the completion of the work of God upon his life. This person has toiled and waited but is now face to face with his breakthrough but it seems there is a warfare arising against the finality of things.

When I saw this I heard the Lord say “I AM Spreading out my Peace to you” and the sense surrounding me was that of the peace of God bringing stillness to the turbulent winds.

Isaiah 66:12
For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.

Then the Lord said “I AM Extending My Peace to you like a river. My Perfect well being poured upon you to still the turbulent winds.

Do not be afraid, do not turn your face off from the race for you are already in the hour of your miracle. Glory comes to you now. Many will come to celebrate your victory as I now move on your behalf, Spreading out my peace to you.”

I Heard “My Plans For You Stands” – By Jahfas Victor Ahua

August 25, 2020.

My Plans For You Stand

It is the hour of fruitfulness. God is laying off things for the new. Don’t look to the foregoing but look ahead for it is now a time of fruitfulness.

Yes, gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw in our last discussion that even the first Apostles were accepted only by grace and Paul would not let even Peter to lead any away from the grace of Christ.

Now in the next verse the Apostle opens up something very pivotal. Something that has been the stronghold of the religious people. A view that when grace is preached or when men seek to the grace of Christ it is a license to sin.

Galatians 2:17
But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.
Observe the first statements carefully, “but if, while we seek to be justified by Christ”

When we declare ourselves as totally unrighteous, feeble and without strength. When we declare that we are totally insufficient. When we totally disregard works to earn salvation but seek to be justified only in Christ, something is popped out from the eyes of those cooperating with the devil as our accusers.

The Apostle says “we ourselves are found sinners”

This is it, when we no longer practice the lifestyle of the law,our emptiness is exposed and many instead of seeing that we only seek to be justified in Christ find us sinners according to the standard of their law.

This is not new, it has been there since the day of the Apostles. Paul preached the grace of Christ so laudably in his day to a level he was been talked about as giving people license to sin or saying that people should do evil that good may come.

Romans 3:8
And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

This is the trade mark of the true gospel. When people actually think you are preaching sin that is when you have the trade mark the Apostle Paul had. When you actually preach the gospel, even you the preacher you are out of the way, you are appear as you truly are, a sinner only looking to Christ for Justification and many that are carnally minded deem it as promoting lasciviousness.

But the Apostle ends it by saying “God forbid”

That’s never the truth. It is rather a declaration of the true state of man before God. A promotion of humility and a need to look to Jesus for genuine salvation.

In the book of God, the sinner today is the advocator of the law contrary to our modern perspectives. Look at what the apostle says in the following verse;

Galatians 2:18-19
For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.

Observe the first verse carefully “For if I build again the things I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.”

Bringing back the works of the law which is already fulfilled by Christ is sinning against Christ. We have been delivered from the law by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Going back to live under the law is actually a sin against God. It is a transgression of the law of faith in Christ Jesus.

We have accepted a religious culture without going to scripture to confirm. If we build again the works of the the law we are actually transgressing against Jesus. Contrary to popular beliefs that the gospel of grace is a promotion of sin, going back to live under the works of the law is actually a sin. A very fatal one for that matter.

Because just like the apostle says “I am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.”

That you may see this, You do not live unto God when you living under the works the law. When you are under the law, you are living unto yourself and not unto God. What you are doing is called self worship. Humanism is what you are practicing. You are worshiping your abilities to fast, tithe, pray many times a day, self abasement and every other ritual we do to prove to God we deserve a blessing.

But when we become dead to the law, we live unto God. We now live to the will and honour of God. We now bear fruit unto God. By the grace of God upon us we live soberly, righteously, not to ourselves but to the awe of the goodness of God upon our lives. God takes the glory in all we do because we genuinely know and live depending only on the arm of the Lord.

This why the apostle totally eliminates himself giving glory to Christ living in him;

Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

The Apostle says “I am crucified with Christ” I am united to him in his death. He was crucified in my stead. But today I am still alive but the truth is this, the old me has gone. I am spiritually regenerated. My old spirit which was the real me has being yanked out and today I have received a new Spirit, Jesus living on my inside. Even the faith I live by is not my own. It is his faith living and working on my inside. I am totally eliminated. I no longer live bur God lives in me.

All this is by the Love of Christ manifested through the Cross. This is why he says;

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

May we not frustrate the grace of God by trying to be righteous by our works. When we do this, we render the work of Christ on the cross a vain thing.

I was telling our congregation the other day that what many are going through is not a matter of prayers. God is showering grace upon grace upon many of us but we are rather frustrating the Grace of God. Instead of resting and enjoying the free gift we have left the place of our sufficiency to an empty place where we are being found in ourselves. When God comes to bless us in him, we are not there, we desire rather to be found in ourselves having our own righteousness which comes by works. This ought not to be.

Beloved of the Lord, let us return to him that loves us. Let us come back to our stronghold. Rest in Christ, wave upon wave of God’s grace comes to you as you are completely aware of your helpless state but looking to him for the grace that comes through Christ Jesus.

We will continue tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a Child of God, I saw that he had a dream in his heart which the Lord had put there. But I also saw that it looked far fetched since his circumstances matched not with the picture God had placed in his heart.

Surprisingly, I saw the Lord appear and asked him to walk with him, as they walked together, I saw how the Lord began to pay the bills….

Isaiah 46:10
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Then the Lord said “I have declared my plan to you. I have put my dreams in your heart. Do not be afraid of the cost of executing my plans for you.

I AM God, even your God. I need no help to fulfill my counsel. Even now I say to you, my plans for you stand! And I AM doing all my pleasure.”
