Get Ready! I AM Calling You Out of The Crowd.

It is a moment where we are going up by revelation. We cannot rise if we go the way of sight at this moment, since the enemy has laid hold on that. Hence, we are going up by the revelation of the Lord, we are rising with our natural eyes closed by the faith of God.

Yes, we will be looking at something very wonderful, we will be gleaning from the book of Galatians. My life was transformed the moment I had an encounter with the Lord through this book. My entire theology of salvation changed and I hope this will be a blessing to you too.

Now the book of Galatians was written by the Apostle Paul to the churches of Galatia, and it deals fully with the subject of the gospel. We are told what the gospel is and how to live after we have received the gospel.

In the Third to fifth verses of the first chapter, he opens up with this salutation;

Galatians 1:3-5
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Yes, he says grace and peace to you from the the father and from our Lord Jesus Christ, then something powerful is introduced in the fourth verse, it says “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver from this present evil world”

What is the connection between the forgiveness of sins and our being delivered from this present evil wold?

The gift of the forgiveness of sins comes with every needed deliverance. Sin got us alienated from God. We were disconnected from the life of God;

Ephesians 4:18
Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

But through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus we have been united to God. How we are delivered from this present evil world is through the life of Jesus that was given for us. He gave himself for our salvation from sin and this present evil world.

Now we have the God life on our inside. We are born from above, hence we have overcome the world by reason of the new birth.

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Today I cannot be defeated, I cannot be held down by the elements of this world. I have overcome the legal dispensation with its fleshly commandments, I have overcome the wicked one with all his host, I have overcome the world and all its evil elements, I am a world over-comer.

Now observe again the last statement from the fourth verse of Galatians one. It says “this present evil world”

The life of Jesus has set us free from this present, this very evil world. As a Christian, if I believe this and keep it a good confession of it, it is activated in my life.

The elements of this world are becoming more evil daily, the world is growing darker and darker. Our air is polluted with evil elements, sicknesses and diseases are everywhere. Wicked men and wicked inventions are arising daily.

But we are told “we are delivered from this present evil world by the forgiveness of our sins through the life of Jesus which was given for us.

Are your sins forgiven? Then you must also see that the life that was given to procure for you forgiveness has also delivered you from this present evil world. If your heart can believe this, you will forever live a delivered lifestyle.

Then the last part of the fourth verse says “according to the will of God and our father”

Now we all know that the Jews killed the Prince of life;

Acts 3:14-15
But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

But all this was according to the determinate counsel of God. Jesus laid down his life by the will of the father and the Romans and Jews did only what the hand of God and his counsel had already determined.

In other words the Jews and the Gentiles were the hands God used to sacrifice Jesus to His own Justice so that you and I be exempted from his Justice and be set free from this present evil world.

Acts 4:27-28
For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

Hence, today God’s will for me and you is to live delivered why we are here. He has already paid the price and all of this is to the glory of his name, even for ever more.

Galatians 1:5
To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

We will continue our gleaning tomorrow…

In an encounter with the Lord; I saw a crowd people, then I saw one person who was called out and given a post over the people. Then I saw a again another person called out to assist the one given a post over he people in managing the funds. As I saw this I was reminded of the story of Pharaoh over Egypt and Joseph.

Genesis 41:34,39-40
Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years..And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

Then the Lord said “Get ready, I AM calling you out of the crowd to the place of authority, the place of your destiny.

You have tasted the furnace of the fire but now is your moment of promotion.

I AM giving you wisdom to understand financial management for I am committing abundance into your hands this season.”

I Heard “Keep on Looking Above, It is Just a Mix Up” – By Pastor Jahfas Ahua

Keep on Looking Above, It is Just a Mix Up

The truth is that the enemy has laid hold on sight. Circumstances are being manipulated to destroy the faith of many. But there is something that is beyond the enemy’s understanding, the peace of the Lord. The Lord has declared this year to be a year of restoration, hence in peace let our eyes be on the destination and not on the turbulent winds.

Yes, there is such a thing as a good profession of faith. It is very pivotal in seeing the promises of God manifesting in our lives.

We are told something incredible in the letter to Philemon;

Philemon 1:6
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

The word translated above for communication is the word koinonia which also means benefaction. The above verse says, that the benefit of your faith may become effectual or operative by the acknowledgement of every Good thing in you in Christ.

We are already blessed with all spiritual blessings, prosperity, joy, wealth, health, safety, securiry, power, every good thing is already in you in Christ. What brings out these blessings into manifestion is acknowledgement.

Now how do you acknowledge these things to see results?

They are two things that are key, we must believe that we already have every good thing in us. Jesus is the summation of all the blessings of God and he is already in us. He is the blessings of God. He is our health, our provision, our joy, our peace, our safety, our security, our righteousness, he is our very life. Whatever we need, he is our all. This is what we must believe. We must believe every good thing is already in us in Christ.

Then we must open our mouths and begin the confession of what we believe.

Romans 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

When we truly believe confession follows, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. When we believe we are in right relationship with God, we are in agreement with God but it doesn’t end there, we must confess what we believe to experience the salvation.
Look at this again;

2 Corinthians 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

True believing goes with speaking. This is complete acknowledgement. We must speak the things we believe to see them in existence.

A lot of us stop at just believing. We believe but go back to God and keep asking him to give us the things he has already given to us.

If we believe every good thing is already in us the next thought should be how to get it out not to go back to God and keep begging as though he is withholding something good from us.

Confession of what we believe is pivotal. It is key to experiencing salvation. All I need in life is already on my inside, the start up capital for every business inspired by God is already on your inside.

You start by saying what you believe like; I Lord I believe you are my health, I confess I am healthy. Lord I believe you are my provision, I proclaim I am provisioned in this assignment. Lord I believe you are my refuge, I declare I am protected, I am underneath the arms of my God. etc..

If your heart can believe this, it doesn’t matter how long, your mouth will produce it. Look at this;

Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

That you may see this, the issues of our lives do not come from the outside but from within. What you see around you today is the manifestation of the things in your heart. The Word used above for issues is from the Hebrew word tôtsâ’âh tôtsâ’âh which means source (Strong’s Concordance H8444).

The heart is the source of the realities we experience. If Christ dwells richly in our hearts, we are sure to produce divine life in all we do. Now look what the Lord says on this;

Matthew 12:35
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Observe carefully the above verse, it does not say out his heart he brings forth good thoughts but “good things” Substance!

If your heart can see it, if your heart can believe you already have it in you, whatsoever you believe, God has vested you with the power to producing.

This statement is general, man in general brings forth things from his heart. Your future is not in the hands of a man, your life is in your hands, right within you. This is why the right prfession of your faith is very important. You just have to be stingy with your mouth, to keep the words of death out of it, because see;

Proverbs 18:20-21
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

You are satisfied with the fruit of your lips.As your confession increases towards God you are filled with the things of God even the more. Death and life are not far but right in our mouths, we eat the fruit of what we say.

Hence, we are commanded to keep the profession of our faith, what we believe has done, whether we see the immediate manifestation or not, for he that has promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

In an encounter with the Lord “I saw a Christian, things around her very mixed up, things frenzied around her by the enemy to create panic, but I saw as she struggled to keep her eyes on God. Then I heard the Lord say to her “keep on looking above”

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.

Then the Lord said “Keep on looking above, it is just a mix up. Do not relent, but fix your gaze on your God, for you are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord.”

I Heard “Come Along With Me into deeper Waters of Revelation” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Come Along With Me into Deeper Waters of Revelation

The breathe of God is upon the revival we are already in. There is an immense witness of the Spirit in power as we are rising in the revelation of the Lord. Stay focused, the major trick of the enemy this season is distraction. What you have begun in the name of the Lord, keep at it for God is with you.

Yes, we are on the subject of Spiritual Growth, the life of the Apostle Paul has been our major concentration. We have observed how that for him to attain unto the resurrection of the dead, he had to count all things to his credit but dung. He had to empty himself of all righteousness, every qualification and look to Christ and be found in him not having his own qualification separate from what Christ has done.

Now there is something worthy of note in the thirteen verse of chapter we have been observing;
Philippians 3:13

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Now the Apostle in pursuit of the resurrection from the dead had not apprehended it yet; but there is something very key for us to observe, he says “this one thing I do” This one thing Paul makes the most important thing he did in the pursuit of resurrection life.

And what is the one thing?

“Forgetting those things which are behind”

The past is one of the strongest holds to deal with.

It is one of the major roots of depression, condemnation I have ever encountered. My mum died when I was five. I come from a broken home. My boyfriend left me when we were just about getting married. I was abused as a teenager. My mate once cheated on me. O if my father was here. If I had not lost my Job. If I had not done this or that I wouldn’t have been here. The list goes on.

As awful as these things may be, there is something ahead, far more greater but one thing is left for us to do. We must let go of the past. The past is actually a potting soil for the future. The more rotten things are found in the soil, the better they form the manure for the growth of the crop.

Your past is a preparation for your greatness, look away for there is something greater awaiting you. Paul was wise, he saw resurrection life at the end of the tunnel. We hear him say, forgetting those things which are behind “reaching forth unto the things which are before”

What lies ahead is greater than your past. The future is more beautiful, there is is an eternal, an unshakable future kept you and I.

Our light afflictions are just producing for us a greater weight of glory.

2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Observe carefully the above verse, “our light affliction” the word of God calls all we go through as just light affliction as compared to what it produces. Then it says it is for a moment. Others never let it be for a moment, some make it a life time.

I know someone may say pastor you don’t know what I have been through. I may not know exactly what you have been through but I won’t be writing this to you right now if have not had my share.

A lot of people do not understand the secret to glory that’s why they kill themselves before it arrives or they live in their past all through their lives.

Now observe what is said about what our affliction does. We hear it “Worketh – for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory”

Observe the word worketh. What works out glory is affliction. What produces or accomplishes glory in us is affliction. Sin called for grace, weaknesses call for the perfect power of God.

This is why Paul left the past and looked ahead, reaching for the resurrection life, the glory reserved ahead of him. He knew better, hence he wrote;

2 Corinthians 4:18
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

If you can see it, it is temporal, look away for ahead lies an eternal glory. This is why no matter how tough it was for Paul, because many of us have not seen a little of what he saw, he says I leave the past and I am heading for the prize;

Philippians 3:14
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
We have not just taken time to observe these scriptures for nothing, this is true biblical growth. This is real spiritual maturity. Infact the Apostle tells us as he concludes this pursuit;

Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Philippians 3:15 ESV

This is the reality of Christian maturity. It is a mindset of humility towards God that allows him to saturate our lives with his fullness. We are admonished to follow after this example, to emulate Paul’s life as a Pattern of spiritual maturity.

Philippians 3:16-17
Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

In an encounter with the Lord, I heard a song in my Spirit and I kept on singing the song in this vision “There is a place.. where deep calleth unto to deep…”

Psalms 42:7
Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Then the Lord said ” There is a place in me, I am calling my people to this place of the deep calling unto deep. A place where there will understand my heart and my vision and rise in authority. The doors are open – Come along with me into deeper waters revelation”

I Heard “Celebrate Your victory! for I Have Run the Race for You” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Celebrate Your victory! for I Have Run the Race for You

There is a shift in the spirit caused by a higher level of revelation being release by the Lord. It is a moment graces are being increased in many in the body of Christ, those who are in tune with what the Lord is doing.

Yes, we have being on the subject of Spiritual Growth. A wonderful subject if understood. It is the potting soil for promotion in God’s kingdom. We are told;

Galatians 4:1-2
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

The word translated above for “Child” is the Greek word nepios to which the figurative meaning is immature Christian (Strong’s Concordance G3516).

As long as we remain immature we differ not from servants, instead of governing, we are under tutors until we grow up to be approved by the Lord.

This is why it is pivotal for each one us to know where we are in our walk with the Lord, and if need be, make some adjustments that we may receive our inheritance in full even though it is a life time journey.

Now the next reason why The Apostle Paul counted all things but dung is this;

Philippians 3:11
If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Who attains unto the resurrection of the dead? This must be a different resurrection for we know that even unbelievers do not need to pray for resurrection, because everyone is going to be raised up on the last day, whether saved or unsaved.

When we loose ourselves there is something different that we encounter. Something higher, we attain unto the resurrection of the dead. The immortal life of Jesus surfaces in us and it is made manifest before creation right in our mortal bodied. This kind of life is beyond death.

Romans 6:9
Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

You live above the mundane, it is a place where death has no dominion over you. Death in all its forms; sickness, poverty, disease, depression, bitterness, envy, covetousness, strife, sorrows etc.

It is a place where only Jesus is seen living his life in a mortal flesh. Oh it is a glorious life. It is a heart’s deepest desire. This is my only desire. My Lord and my God, When I fall, may I always fall pursuing the resurrection life of My Lord. May it also be your lone desire o beloved brother.

Philippians 3:12
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

The Apostle does not lay claim to have apprehended the life yet, either was he now perfect or complete but there is a mindset worthy of emulation. He says “but I follow after” I am gunning for the life. I’ve got my eyes fixed on this glorious life. I am running after the life. I am focused, chasing after this life.

But there is also another thing worthy of note, he says “that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.”

The reason for Jesus laying hold on Paul was for the manifestation of his resurrected life in his mortal flesh. As we sweet as heaven is, the main desire of Christ, the main prize is for us to manifest his resurrection life here on the earth.

His desire is for us to loose our lives that we may attain unto the resurrection of the dead here on earth. This is true Spiritual Growth. It is not longevity in Christ.

A lot of people can’t even be humble enough to learn from someone they have been born again before, thinking they are better. That in itself is immaturity. If it was for longevity it wouldn’t have been Paul used like that. He came from behind but he got the revelation that opens up the inheritance. The revelation that moves us from servant hood to reigning over all through Christ Jesus, the lost of all things to our pride.

The Lord bless our hearts…We will continue tomorrow…

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw someone who the enemy has been battling with seriously, then another scene appeared where I saw this person celebrating the victory in a race competition to which he did not partake in.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Then the Lord said “I understand your troubles, I am acquainted with all your griefs, but my peace I give to you. Celebrate your victory! for I have run the race for you. Be of good cheer – for I have overcome the world.

I Heard “A New Dawn” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

August 12, 2020.

A New Dawn

It is key at this moment not to focus on what God is yet to do but what he has already done for us, how he has been faithful, where he has picked us from, who we now are in him, the blessings we have already received from him. And to be patient and confident that our times are in his hands.

Yes, Spiritual growth is what we have been looking at for some days now. Understanding this will help us position ourselves for the greatness of God to be made manifest in our lives. We have been observing the life of the Apostle Paul. Used of God more than anyone in the New Testament. We have seen that he grew to see himself utterly unworthy just even as Spurgeon did,

When you feel yourself to be utterly unworthy, you have hit the truth – Charles Haddon Spurgeon 1834 – 1892

We have come to understand that when we let go of all our own desires and long only for God, we encounter the excellency of the knowledge of God. Where we have resurrection life made manifest in us.

There is another thing that the Apostle Paul desired which today it is as though it is a curse for anyone to preach on it. We are often too used to the joyful and happy parts of the gospel. What we all need is the whole counsel of God. There is a part not enticing but key to experiencing the resurrection power of Christ. It is a pathway for the mature who desire deeper koinonia (fellowship) with the Lord.

As the Apostle continues to list the reasons for forgoing all things, we see something strange he was gunning for;

Philippians 3:10
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

And the fellowship of his sufferings? Who ever desires sufferings? But this was the mindset of the Apostle. This is the truth of love. This is the proof of genuine love for God.

Today this kind of life is little appreciated in most places. A lot of people worship their integrity, they can’t go out to evangelize Jesus for fear of shame, that they might be insulted. They cannot risk some insult for Jesus. They have been deceived that they have an integrity outside of Jesus hence they are protecting it. Instead of counting it all Joy, instead of looking at it as a privilege as the disciples of old would do many of us have been deceived by the enemy. There is no genuine love for God manifesting in a lot of us.

Most of us live in places where there is no much persecution, yet we are so lazy, careless and more fearful than those living in war fronts. They are countries Christians are being persecuted and killed everyday yet they are unrelenting in preaching the cross.

But this was the desire of all the Apostles, it is a declaration of value and honour for what the Lord has done for us. All the Apostles longed for these sufferings and died in them for name of our saviour.

New School Christianity is destroying everything, a lot of us are comfortable sharing football results, advertising celebrities, advertising ourselves, there is nothing on our social media platforms that speak of Jesus.

Why not make your social media platform a place for the Lord, a ministry unto your God. I think self is the problem, you desire to be seen? You desire to belong? You want to advertise your potentials? but I think somewhere in you, if you are truly saved, you desire resurrection life.

Then you must give way. You must be made conformable to his death. He laid down his life for us to have his life but we must also lay down our lives to receive his. We must loose our lives to find it in him.

When we suffer, we reign. This kind of suffering is not God cursing you with sickness, no, we are promised persecution, contradiction of sinners just as our saviour. When we suffer we reign;

2 Timothy 2:12
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

A lot of us just want things from the Lord. The heart of God is to save sinners, to lift up the name of Jesus and that comes with a cost.

But we often reject the cost. All we want is protect me, he heal me, heal my children, prosper me, love me, promote me, beautify me, give me influence, me affluence, give me, give me, give me – the list goes on. Oh I sincerely love Spurgeon, look at this quote;

He who follows Christ for his bag is a Judas; they who follow for loaves and fishes are children of the devil; but they who attend him out of love to himself are his own beloved ones. – Charles H. Spurgeon 1834 – 1892

We never ask the question a genuine convert ought to ask just like the Apostle Paul did at the moment of his conversion. “Lord, what will you have me to do? (Acts 9:6).
I do not understand why others are so comfortable but look at this quote again;

As soon as a man finds Christ, he goes to find others. – Charles H. Spurgeon 1832 – 1892

Like the woman at the well, if you have found him, there must be a yearning in you to find others.

It may look strange but we are still on spiritual growth. This is not food for babies, it is for the mature, those in love with Jesus. Hope I’ll see you tomorrow…

In an encounter with the Lord, I kept hearing “a new dawn” repeatedly as I was waking up from the bed.

2 Peter 1:19
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

Then the Lord said “My light is shining in the darkness, it is a new dawn, a time of light. Your time of higher spiritual understanding as I arise and dwell richly in your heart”
