You Are Being Rescued

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.

We saw from our previous discussion what the apostle Paul declared, that Christ becomes ineffective in the life of whosoever is justified by the law.

Then we hear,

Galatians 5:5
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

The above verse says something incredible. The apostle says “we through the Spirit”

If anyone one would have had a reason to seek justification through the works of the Law, it was the apostles. Although they were Jews, grew up under the law, yet, they at the revelation of Jesus by the Spirit, were wholly submitted to the righteousness of faith.

The statement “Wait for the hope of righteousness by faith” does not mean they were not at this time efficaciously righteous.

But this is speaking of the glory to be revealed at the return of Christ. The total manifestation of the kingdom of God, when our humble Lord and brother, the kinsman redeemer, returns for salvation and no longer for sin.

There are seemingly two kinds of righteousness, the righteousness of the Law which genders to bondage and the righteousness of God which comes to us by faith.

The righteousness of the law is not actual, but a supposed righteousness, because there never has existed a law given to which righteousness could come by.

Galatians 3:21
Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

It is actually a self-righteousness, because it declares you are justified by your works. You live in it, and if you can’t possibly live in it you die in it.

Romans 10:5
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them

If it had life in it, we would have received life and righteousness by living in its requirements. But it was meant to lead to the death of self. Hence, instead of living in it, men died in it and were held captive in its coffin.

Romans 7:6
“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held”

Then we have the righteousness of God which comes by faith in Christ Jesus. This is the true and only righteousness. Here the the wretched sinner is justified freely by the free Grace of God without the works of the law, to which all the apostles looked to for salvation.

This righteousness has nothing to do with the works of the law. It is the fulfilment of the law, the fulfilment of the entire justice of God for the sinner by Christ.

Romans 3:21-22
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Observe the statement “for there is no difference”

The apostle says, we all, even though Jews, together with you, have put our hope in the righteousness of faith which comes unto all and upon all who believe, making no distinction.

Once you believe in the Son of God, this righteousness comes upon you while the law stands watching.

It stands powerless before righteousness of God, even though you lack the ability to meet up with the demands of the law, your faith in Christ fulfils it and beyond.

The Moment you believe in Jesus, you are in for it. The righteousness of God comes to you and lands upon you, making you eternally qualified to approach the throne of grace, to access your inexhaustible inheritance in Christ.

The truth is that, the greatest apostle that ever lived, Paul was not more righteous than you. He was not more qualified than you as you can hear him confess.

The apostle Peter was not more qualified than you. They had no other special standing with God, but in the righteousness of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Now that you have believed in Jesus, you are the righteousness of God in Christ, made holy and fit for kingdom exploits!

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a Child of God with a lot of issues upon his body fall into a pit as he went there to do some work.

He had been taken through a tunnel of water into to this pit that was covered with hard concrete.

It looked as though he was dead in this pit.

But I saw how the Lord sent two angels, and I saw how one of the angels with a sharp digger, broke open the covering on this pit.

To my surprise this Child of God was found still alive in the pit. And his life was rescued.

I was led to:

Job 33:18
He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

And again:

Psalms 91:11-12
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Then the Lord said “My Child, holy and beloved of your Father, I see the issues upon your life. I see that they have taken you down to where it now looks as though you won’t be able to come out. I see that your situation looks as though you are dead in it.

But listen my dear Child, I have been keeping you all along, and I have not let go of my hand upon you. I am with you and still keeping you even from perishing even in this pit.

Your life is precious to me, it has cost me even the death of my firstborn, the son of My Love.

You will not be lost in this battle, I have given my angels charge over you, and you are being rescued from the sword of your adversaries.

They are keeping you in all your ways. See, you are being borne up in their hands out of the pit, Lest you be hurt by the evil one.”

Now Is The Time Of Miracles! – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Now Is The Time Of Miracles!

This word was originally posted March 31, 2020.

As I was about continuing with our Gleanings From The Book Of Galatians, The Holy Spirit impressed this word upon my heart so strong I had to pause and resend it to the one the Lord loves and wants to bless!

We will continue on our Gleanings From The Book of Galatians tomorrow…..

In a vision, The Lord showed me believer, He was in God’s purpose but because of the natural occurrence going on around him which seemed to be very opposing, he began to doubt if he had stepped out in God’s timing,

Then I saw a big bag full of leaflets and when I looked closely on what was written on these leaflets I saw “calling” on each of them.

Then I heard the Lord say “Do not be afraid of the storm, I dwell in thick darkness, and I have been leading you. You have not missed my call, but you are in your calling. I have been directing your work in truth for my everlasting covenant is upon you, and I have reserved for you the victory”.

For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. Isaiah 61:8

In another encounter with the Lord, I saw the Lord appear to a believer who was in a very tight situation that only the sovereign hand of God could deliver him and the Lord said to him “God will bring you out”
Coming out of the encounter the Holy Ghost straight way lead me to Isaiah 35:4

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Isaiah 35:4

The word translated above for save is from the Hebrew word yasha which means “to be open wide or free, and to free or succor” (Strong’s Concordance H3467).

Hear the Lord say, “I have come with vengeance and I’m bringing you out, I have opened wide the doors of your captivity and freed you. I beckon on you to step forward. My succor is with you, all I have called you to do I am helping you in the accomplishment of all with my own POWERFUL hand.”

Then in an encounter with the Lord yesterday he said to me “NOW IS THE TIME FOR MIRACLES”

It has begun, the miraculous is upon us. The Holy fire of God is upon the body of Christ right now. Do not be afraid but spread the fire of the Lord, pray for the sick on any platform given to you, online or face to face and watch the king roar with vengeance upon your enemies.

I Heard “Now, the Vision Will Speak In Your Favour” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Now, the Vision Will Speak In Your Favour

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.

We saw from our last discussion, that Christ profits you nothing, when you go back to the doctrine of circumcision.

Then we hear the apostle continue;

Galatians 5:4
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

“Christ is become of no effect unto you”

The effect of the Cross, the power of the Grace of God, the riches of the life of Christ are nullified in your life. The advantage of knowing the saviour is completely abrogated in your life. But why?

“whosoever of you is justified by the law”

Not as though anyone could! For by The Law, there shall no flesh be justified before God.

The meaning then is this, if you seek to be justified by the works of The Law, and by your invalid estimation, reckon yourself to be righteous before God by it. Christ is completely of no advantage to you. You render him ineffective in your life.

And then we hear;

“Ye are fallen from grace”

Fallen from grace? I thought The Law was higher than the Grace of God!
Oh grace is the higher life of the Christian. You are born from above and not from earthly Sinai. A lot of people make it look as though The Law is the higher standard of life, and people are looking for an excuse to live under the Grace of God.

Going back to the works of The Law is living your higher spiritual life, down to the mundane. Leaving your heavenly seat with Christ as the son of his love, reigning in life with him, to where you fall down to the earth and are try to rich up to heaven to bring Christ down by your works. A very bad picture if you would imagine it.

Don’t be like the fallen angel. You are already a child of God, a partaker of the divine nature. An heir of God, an heir of the kingdom, full of God’s wisdom and power.

You cannot be stopped, you are the light of the world, you are a city set upon the hill that cannot be hidden.

If I was not a child of God myself, I won’t lie to you, I wouldn’t have helped, but envied you all my life.

You are made blameless, spotless and predestined for greatness in Christ.

See you tomorrow….

In an exciting encounter with the Lord which looked as though a movie I had seen before, I saw a child of God in a race competition, I saw him run so well with the opponent. But it was quite a tight race.

Then as they approached the finish line, this child of God and his opponent were at the same pace, side by side, same speed it looked as though it would be a tie as they crossed the finish line.

After the race, there was a waiting time for the announcement of the winner, as the officials were keenly observing the race.

I saw this Child of God, not knowing the outcome but sensing it just has to be him, waiting and looking expectantly at what the officials would announce.

It was a shock though, but as the announcements were made. I saw this Child of God jump up with joyous celebration, for it was judged to his favour! He had won the race!

I was led to;

Habakkuk 2:2-3
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Then the Lord said, “My dearly loved one, know that you are in my will, and have been running with my vision upon your life. It has been hard I know, but you have been strong and unrelenting in the race in the face of opposing forces.

I know It is your greatest desire to see the fulfilment of my vision upon you. You have crossed the finish line, now is the appointed time.

You are at the end and now, the vision will speak in your favour and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, having a confident expectation of good, for it is now coming to pass and will no longer tarry.”

I Heard “My Light has Arisen for You in This Darkness” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

My Light has Arisen for You in This Darkness

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.

We saw yesterday that we have been set free from Satan, the bondage of The Law, sin, guilt and condemnation, but that we must stand fast in our liberty in Christ, never again to be entangled with the bondage of the Law, if we must enjoy our freedom.

Galatians 5:1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Then we hear the apostle making a very stern statement;

Galatians 5:2
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.

“Behold, I Paul say unto you”

Paul now emphatically speaking with the authority of an apostle, as a custodian of the mysteries of the Gospel of Grace, as the head to which The Gospel to the uncircumcision was committed unto, declares that,

“if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing”

Circumcision in itself is not an evil thing if done for the right reasons. The Galatians at this time were going back to circumcision as a doctrine of The Law, to make one whole after being born of God.

They did not all together reject Christ, but wanted to blend the grace of Christ with the meritorious works of The Law.

The apostle declares this to be a contrivance to Christ being The All. Either Christ is a Whole Saviour, or none at all. He is not an icing to the cake.

The apostle emphatically declares that Jesus is not a part saviour. Combining him with the rituals of the Law is setting him aside entirely, which is detrimental, because you forsake your benefits in him. You are setting aside all the benefits of the cross by going back to observe The Law.

All my two boys are circumcised, both of them on the seventh day. Why? When my first son was born, a pastor close to me pushed hard that he must be circumcised on the eight day, I would have done that but he was making it look as if, although we are now in Christ, we must observe these things to be right with God.

Saying in it in my heart, that it has been abolished, didn’t help my faith much, so I had to let my faith have its actions. I did it on the seventh day and so with my second son. I want to have all the profit Christ has offered. I will stand fast in the freedom I have in Christ as long as I can discern by the Spirit of the Lord.

Then we hear the apostle declaring;

Galatians 5:3
For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

Observe one, observe everything written in The Law. Observe circumcision; you are a debtor to fulfill the entire Law; ceremonial, moral, civil, all the laws written in Scripture.

Observe carefully the word “the whole law” not part of it as some agitate falsely today.

Every little jot, every ordinance, animal sacrifices must be returned and Christ set completely aside.

All must be observed perfectly if you desire a life of bondage, and after your failed observation, you will still not benefit from the unsearchable riches of Christ, for you deny him by such works.

But there is a better way, a new and living way, you can just rest in the finished work of Christ and bear fruits unto God. Christ is your profit, therefore you will never loose. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, hence, your blessings are intact.

You have left The Law, cling to your profit. Stay in the assurance of the Love of your father, for you will soon cash out the profit of your faith.

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a Child of God who had felt led by the Lord to embark on this vision.

But I saw that it looked as though she was asking herself where are you Lord? Because of the dark circumstances I saw surrounding her.

She felt as though she was abandoned by the Lord in what she felt he had called her out to do.

Amidst this chaotic happenings, I felt the presence of the Lord strong with her.

Then another scene appeared where I saw her in the glory of the Lord, as she was promoted, celebrating and rejoicing in what the Lord had done for her. It was a swift deliverance.

I was led to;

Micah 7:8
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

And again;

Psalms 112:3-4
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Then the Lord said, “I have not left you my child, I have being with you in the darkness and I tell you my light has being shining on you.

Rejoice my dear one, say to yourself ” I am rising” tell your enemy not to rejoice over you, for as long as I am your light, assuredly, you are shining!

Wealth and riches shall be in your house, your righteousness shall speak for generations.

I have seen your gracious heart, full of compassion and filled with righteousness, Now, I say to you, My light has arisen for you in this darkness.”

I Heard “Fight From Victory” – By Jahfas Victor Ahua

Fight From Victory

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians.

We saw from our last discussion, that Hagar and her son were cast out and were never to be admitted into the inheritance meant for Isaac, the child of promise.

Which things are a typology of the Covenant of The Law and its works, which have been cancelled and taken out of the way, never to have a part in he inheritance of The Covenant of Grace.

The next Chapter opens up something wonderful to behold. It says;

Galatians 5:1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Now Observe carefully, in the above verse, the word “therefore”.

It is used as an inference drawn or a conclusion drawn from the previous discission. The previous chapter declared the verdict of God for Abraham to cast out The Law and its works because of it’s unprofitableness in the Covenant of Grace.

Then we hear in this verse ” Stand fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free “

Beloved, it is not a sin to be free. To many today, when you preach the freedom we have in Christ, it is as though, it is a sin to be free.

The truth is that, because of the way the enemy has fought the freedom we have in Christ; a freedom from Satan, the bondage of the curse and condemnation of The Law, from sin, and from eternal death, it is often difficult for the average Christian to actually live with the Blood Cleansed Conscience.

The language in the verse above, indicates that we must contend for this freedom, if we must enjoy it.

Stand fast! we hear. This is why most of the fathers of faith fought, laying down their lives for us to have an unadulterated, highest heart desire fulfilled Christian experience here on this side of life. They fought for a purified religion, where Christ is the liberty of all Christians.

If the Church today will keenly look back at what Martin Luther fought for, you will see that a lot of our pulpits are far into spiritual adultery.

Most of our Christian fathers fought and died for the course of freedom in Christ.

If you go back to studying church history, some were burned to the stakes by the Church for fighting to restore the gospel of the free grace of Christ back to the pulpits.

You must make a decision to contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.

The freedom of the Christian is not licentiousness, neither is it lasciviousness, but it is the deliverance from the bondage of sin, the curse of The Law, from guilt and condemnation. It is an alienation from eternal death, into the unmerited, unearned, unconditional and invaluable blessings of The Christ.

Then we hear “and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”

Imagine the hard labour an oxen does as it carries heavy yokes on its back. This is what it means to go back to the bondage of trying to please God by the works of the law. Trying to win God’s favour by merits.

The word bondage above is vast in meaning, when you fall back into this bondage, you fall back under the authority of Satan, the curse of the law, Sin, guilt and condemnation.

You make your self a prey to these things by rejecting your position as a child of promise, a child of God qualified by birth, born with the rights to rule as an heir of all things in Christ.

Dear beloved, you must stand fast, anywhere you turn today there are voices of discouragement fueled by the enemy as it has always being.

There is no promise from the word of God that all Christians will enjoy this rest on this side of life. It clearly says some will not enter by reason of unbelief. Those that enter, will enter by ferocious warfare. There is a conscious labouring involved. This is why we are told;

Hebrews 4:11
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Stand fast in your liberty in Christ, God has already blessed you with invaluable blessings. It does not matter what the enemy is pulling around, keep standing strong and declaring your freedom in Christ. Weeping may endure for a night, but your joy comes in the morning.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord “I saw a child of God, who has being in warfare, contending with the enemy in his assignment for some time now.

At the time I saw this, he had gained ascendency in the things of the spirit, and had risen high in the exercise of his authority over the enemy in his territory.

I saw the enemy show up and was looking for a way to put up a fight.

But at this time, I saw that this child of God was feeling deep within himself, that he had already overcome, and would not fight as before, but I saw him run off to the hills declaring his victory with Joy.

I was led to:

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.

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

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.

Then the Lord said “My beloved Child, I see the contentions you have faced. You have had tribulations, troubles that have made the faith of others to fail them.

But you have stood strong, gaining the ascendency in the exercise of your authority in me. Now, be Joyful my Child, I have already given you the victory.

I see you putting up a new weapon of warfare, fighting from the top, right on top of the hill, for you a city set upon the hill that cannot be hidden. You will not be thrown down, for I have already overcome the world.

Fight from victory with the joy of your father, for you are born of Me, and have overcome the world.”
