It Is Your Time Of Rising

It is absolutely an overwhelming season, a victorious moment. The fires are there, but there is a peace which surpasses understanding surging through from the throne of grace to many who are looking unto Jesus.

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw from our last discussion, how the apostle defines the motive of those preaching the law. That they desired to exclude the believers so they would affect them.

Then we hear the apostle say;

Galatians 4:18
But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

Now the apostle makes a generic statement, that it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing. Zeal is good when well channeled. But he says it was different in their case “and not only when I am present”

Paul says, don’t just be zealous when I am around, preaching the grace of God to you, don’t just be affectionate when I am around with you, but let your zeal remain even when I am not around.

This is the problem, when people have not had a personal revelation of Jesus, they cannot stand when the pressures of the law hit them. They are easily carried away by diverse doctrines.

It is difficult to stay focused on the grace of Christ, because the teachings of the law are not lies, you can find them in scriptures, but it is not the present truth, hence, it must be taught with the Spirit of revelation.

You have to seek God for yourself daily. You have to crave for Jesus. You have to spend time praying and meditating upon God’s word.

It is our only way of escape. In life there is only one you can forever lean on, a friend in all seasons, only him has the power to truly love unconditionally, the only life line, the only hope, the only life; Our dear Jesus.

Oh’ he appeared to me one day and revealed to me his humility. I have been in tears each time I closely look back on that encounter. I know, I know, I am undone before his excellences, but his unmatched love for me is what gives me the courage to kelp pushing on daily.

He is the one we are to be zealously affected with everyday.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I heard these words “It is Your Time of Rising”

When I heard this the sense surrounding was of someone who has sat in the dark for a long time.

Then I was led to:

Isaiah 60:1-3
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

I Heard “Now is Your Time of Comforting” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Now is Your Time of Comforting

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw from our discussion yesterday that the grace of Christ produced an exceeding excitement in the hearts of the Galatia Churches, we saw how they were at first willing to do anything for the gospel, but the introduction of the law was now turning their hearts cold.

We hear the apostle continue;

Galatians 4:16
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

This is how it is with all those that preach the truth; the gospel of the grace of Christ.

When you are wholly committed to the preaching of God’s grace, instead of being accepted by all, because your whole duty is to push people to Christ, you are rather hated and despised by many. You become an enemy of many.

Why? Because you just keep stepping on trophies. A lot of people have built upon the foundation of Christ, wood, hay, stubble and when you are led by the Spirit to breakdown these fences, instead of humility, they tend to hate you rather. You immediately fall into the camp of their enemies. It is as though you are coming from nowhere to condemn all they have laboured for all their lives.

My father actually said this to me, He was from one of the orthodox churches in Nigeria, which today are a people who do not joke with the preaching of the law.

But I kept on pointing him to Jesus, preaching the grace of God to him until one day he said, I feel condemned with what we stand for any time I hear you preach. Thank God we never became enemies. He respected my call and accepted my manner of delivery. And the later years of his life were the most exciting of all his years.

Standing for the truth is not actually what people think, If anyone was hated among the apostles by religious people, it was Paul, but if any one was actually successful there was none like him. Why? The truth never dies, it lives forever.

Then the apostle says;

Galatians 4:17
They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.

Observe carefully the above statement “They zealously affect you”

Who are they? False brethren, teachers of the Law. The entire ministry of Paul was a war against these kinds of people. It was a fight against anything outside of Christ.

The whole ministry of Paul was to dispute the doctrines of the Law and to persuade men to look to Jesus;

Acts 19:8
And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God

And again we hear;

Acts 28:23
And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

Because once you win a heart to Jesus, you have given that heart all and has set it on fire forever.

This is my call, this my ministry, this is my passion; to persuade men daily to turn to the grace of Christ.

So, the apostle says, they zealously affect you, but not well.

Many people confuse zeal for knowledge. People can be zealous for the wrong thing for decades. There is such a thing as zeal without knowledge. We go for knowledge and not just zeal.

The law preachers, the apostle says, zealously had a target, and what is their target?

“they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.”

They disqualify you through the law, that you may look to them. The exclude you from your rights are a righteous and holy child of God by the blood of Jesus.

They make you think they have attained righteousness by law keeping, and when you have a heart for God, and try to purely keep the law and you can’t, you start looking to them as the qualified, for mediation. They become your mediator before God. You do whatsoever you are told to do, so they can get to God for you.

Look to Jesus, the all sufficient one and find grace and mercy in this great time of need.

Another day in the love of Christ with you tomorrow…..

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw someone that had lost something as she was just waiting on God.

She was determined not to use natural means to fix things, but she wanted the sovereign hand of God to move on her behalf. Yes it worked.

I saw the Lord move swiftly on her behalf and things that were on hold were been released supernaturally.

Jeremiah 30:17
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

2 Kings 8:6
And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed unto her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now.

Then the Lord said “It is my will for you to prosper and be in health even as your soul is prospering. You have waited upon me, now is your time of comforting. I AM restoring health to you. Vitality in your spirit, soul, and body.

I AM healing your hurts. You have felt like an outcast but you have never been alone my child. I AM always with you even in the fires. My love cannot let you alone.

Listen not to the voices that say, ‘you will never be sought after’ for I am restoring the all to you.

All you have lost even until now, and all you have never had, I bring to you in a moment. Not one word will fall to the ground that I have spoken concerning you.

I Heard “Put Out The Enemy” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Royal Life

September 16, 2020.

Put Out The Enemy

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw yesterday that the Observation of days, months, years and the Sabbath were a shadow of the reality we now have in Christ. Today we are in the day of salvation, the day of Christ. We are to be chaste virgins to Christ alone and not unto beggarly elements.

Then the apostle goes on to say;

Galatians 4:12
Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.

The language Paul used above is very strong and rarely found in the mouths of most of our leaders today. “Be as I am; for I am as ye are”

Now, how was Paul? He was wholly committed to the gospel he preached. The gospel of God’s grace for the wretched. Paul preached and lived a lifestyle of the grace of God, to which he now commends the churches in Galatia to be as he was.

Then we hear “for I am as ye are”

A lot of people who minister the law to people make it look as though they are perfect observing the commandments and trying to help others to become sinless as the falsely imagine they are.

Not so with the apostle, Paul Identifies with these churches that were now going back to the works of the law, saying, I am as ye are. We all stand by the grace of God. We all are qualified by that same death, burial and resurrection and nothing else. I am as ye are. As wretched as all of you. This is rare in the mouths of many leaders.

Then we hear him continue;

Galatians 4:13
Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

Infirmity of the flesh? You, an apostle, having infirmity in your flesh?

A lot of people make it look as though Christians are worse sinners if they are sick or have any other infirmity. I have had people contact me secretly for fear of been castigated in their local churches for their problems, in the name of lack of faith.

Yes, we encourage people to go for the life in Christ Jesus, but no Christian is above temptation, no matter your level of revelation. If the grand apostle of revelation had an infirmity, then I think you too may.

In fact, the more the grace, the more God allows you to be tempted so the grace can find expression.

Infirmity of the flesh mentioned above is not specified, it could be anything at all.

Now this is it, because Christ has already borne all our griefs and sorrows on the cross (Isaiah 53:4-5), since he bore it and took it away, nailing it to the cross, we do not have it again. As he is, so are we in this world (1John 4:17), hence, all what we go through is called a temptation.

It only comes to test what is already in us, this is the reason Paul calls his infirmity in the flesh a temptation;

Galatians 4:14
And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

This was a rare quality of faith demonstrated by the churches in Galatia. Today people judge ministers of the gospel by how many cars they’ve got, how large the size of their ministries, how many members they’ve got. They judge them by material things and despise the word of God.

Their case was different;

Galatians 4:15
Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me.

They disregarded his impoverished condition and embraced the gospel, they took him in even as they would take in an angel from God. They were ready to give anything to the apostle for the furtherance of the gospel disregarding his infirmity.

O’ how I have sought for knowledge. I do not care the source as long as it is Biblical, and would make me grow, I’ll go for it and not titles.

This was a rare faith and it is worthy of our emulation. This kind of faith and love for God was now becoming cold by the introduction of the law. Not good! Not good I tell you.

So, our problems are called temptations. Our light affliction is rather producing for us an eternal weight of glory.

It is well beloved, it is just a temptation, it will soon be off by the power of Christ.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord this morning, I heard the Lord speak to a person having marital problems, as I saw the hand of the enemy trying to put them apart.

I heard “Submit yourselves one to another, what you see is of the enemy. It will be worse if you let go.

Can two work together if they are not in agreement? Agree with me my Child, and watch me restore.

Look to agreeing with yourselves, for you are better together than apart my dear Child.

I love you too dearly to watch you suffer the pains of loneliness.

It is not a matter of who is right or wrong, forgive unconditionally, even as I have forgiven you, and seek restoration as my hand is ready to move.

Put out the enemy, he is the third party with the voices of discord. When you walk in love, you walk with me, you walk in my life, for I AM Love.”

Ephesians 5:21
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of move

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

I Heard “You Are Now Going Forward” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

You Are Now Going Forward

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw in our last discussion as the apostle admonished the churches in Galatia, that going back to the law is going back into bondage. It is to live under beggarly elements which cannot offer life.

Galatians 4:9
But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

Then the apostle goes on to state some of the beggarly elements they were now going back to observe;

Galatians 4:10
Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

Please get ready as the word of God is going to step on religious toes right now!

Observation of days, today is idolatry. Observation of days, months, times, and years is unscriptural, it was the former way of life lived by the churches in Galatia to which they made worship them to which are not gods by nature.

Today in Christ there is nothing like the Sabbath days. The Sabbath day observation ended when Jesus died on the cross to fulfil the righteousness of the Law for us. He himself is the Lord of the Sabbath.

Today we don’t have days, we have only one day called the day of salvation:

2 Corinthians 6:2
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Now is the day of salvation. We don’t have to wait until a Sabbath day to have fellowship with God. We don’t have to observe a holy Sabbath day for us to be holy, we are perpetually holy and irreproachable in Christ;

Colossians 1:21-22
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

The Sabbath observation was just a picture of the rest we are to have in Christ. It was foreshadowing the grace we will have in Christ. It foreshadowed that after the work on the cross, we will rest from all our works to earn salvation and look to Christ for salvation.

Now that Christ has done work, we have entered into this rest. We are no longer labouring to enter the rest but we have ceased from all our works to earn salvation.

Hebrews 4:9-10
There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Oh, that you may see that it was a shadow! God rested on the seventh day when the work of creation was finished on the sixth day, as a picture that the people of God, the new creation, when we believe in the finished work of Christ, the new creation work done by Christ, we enter the rest(the seventh day, the Sabbath day) just as God did and rested on the seventh day. But for unbelief not many people do.

Christ is the reality of the Sabbath; it was all speaking of him. He is the substance of the Sabbath observation, he is the fulfilment of the Sabbath.

Colossians 2:16-17
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Observe the statement “Which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is of Christ.”

I know most of you have not seen this one in your Bibles. Sabbath days were a shadow, the reality is Christ. He is the substance, the material, the reality of what they were foreshadowing. Now that we have the reality, going back to the shadow is foolishness.

Again observe this statement “Let no man therefore judge you”

please don’t send me a mail concerning this, you are forbidden by the word of God not to Judge me for not observing the Sabbath days. I am observing my rest in Christ.

Those who fight for the observation of the Sabbath days do not even know the day of the Sabbath. Many people will kill you for going to the farm on Sunday. They think Sunday is the Sabbath day.

The Sabbath days were “Friday Sun Down to Saturday Sun Up”. (Luke 23:53 -56, Luke 24:1) it does not have anything to do with Sunday. Most of us believe our Lord Jesus died on Friday which was the preparation for the sabbath, if you read the above quoted verses, the Sabbath day was Saturday to which they rested to see him rise on Sunday. Hence those fighting for the observation of the Sabbath on Sunday do not even know the day of the Sabbath. Religion without revelation is a demon.

This is why Some real law keepers go to Church on Saturday, adding the name of Jesus to their traditions which Paul says is doing service to beggarly elements.

Today we are in the day of Salvation, the day of Christ, I can go to my farm on Sunday, Saturday, any day I feel like. In our Church, we have only set aside Sundays for services, Wednesdays for services, there is actually no difference. We only set aside a day convenient for many of us to meet and enjoy fellowship with each other and the Lord. In Christ observing days is idolatry.

Paul says the Galatians observation of days was a destruction to all his labours of grace upon them;

Galatians 4:11
I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

Look to Christ. We are already in our Sabbath rest, resting from our works and enjoying the grace of Christ. Christ the Lord is the body of the Sabbath.

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw the Lord with a Christian who had been in a tight corner for long. This child of God has never actually experienced the life of abundance before in her life.

I saw that the Lord had promoted her but she had stayed in that level without going forward for a long time.

As I saw this, I Saw the face of the Lord become all of a sudden full of displeasure over the condition of this Child of God. Then I felt him say Heard “You are now going forward” as the Lord began putting up things together for a shift.

Deuteronomy 1:6-8
The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates. Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.

Then the Lord, “My Child, I see your longsuffering, you have waited for so long for my salvation, but this is your moment. Your have dwelt too long in this condition. I say to you, Go forward!

What you see before you I have already given to you. Go on my Child and possess the Land. Lay hold on your inheritance. Do not be afraid, You are not going alone, I, even I your God is with you. I AM with you to help you all the way.

I am establishing my covenant upon you and no one can stop what I do for you. I say to you my Child, arise! gladden yourself, rejoice, for – you are now going forward”

I Heard “It is Not A Battle Of The Flesh” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Daily Devotional & Prophecy
September 13, 2020.

It is Not A Battle Of The Flesh

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. Yesterday we saw that there are no gods. There is but one God,The Source, The one Being, from Whom all things.

The Churches in Galatia did service to so-called gods before their conversion, but now things had changed. Look at what the apostle says;

Galatians 4:9
But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

Observe carefully this statement “how turn ye again to weak and beggarly elements”

What are these weak and beggarly elements? The law and its ceremonies.

The apostle calls it weak and beggarly, not because the law is evil in itself, but because it does not have the power to offer life, righteousness, joy, peace and salvation to those observing it.(Gal. 3:21)

It is weak and beggarly, not in itself, but in giving life and justification to its observers.

Before the conversion of the Churches in Galatia, they were used to observing ceremonies, laws unto fictitious deities which had nothing to offer as it pertains life and righteousness.

Now that they had received Christ, The life and righteousness, and were expressly declared the way of salvation through Jesus, turning back to the law and its ceremonies was utter foolishness, blatant stupidity and a show of contempt for what the Lord has done.

That kind of persuasion is of the devil who desires men to fall back from honouring Christ; from looking to Christ for righteousness into the bondage of the law. We hear;

“Whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage”

The apostles never admonished any one to go back to keeping the law for righteousness after being delivered from that bondage. If there is a desire to fall back to the law the apostle says it is a desire to fall back into a life of bondage, where you live beggarly; you start doing everything to earn righteousness and favour from a thrice Holy God.

You live the position of an heir as a son – to begging as a servant. Those who don’t know who they are in Christ will kill you for disturbing their servant hood mentality when you preach the power of God’s grace to which he has already qualified us as sons.

There is only one reality we must observe, Christ! He is the substance of the covenant.
The reality of every blessing. He is the way the truth and the life. He has been slain for you and I, as we look to him daily, we are being Changed into the same image, from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a leader in the will of God. I saw this person trying to lead others to their destinies in Christ.

But I saw that though he was doing it, he was doing it as though it was a thing of the flesh. He was using natural efforts but the hearts of these people were under a demonic power.

I saw a demon stand by as it exerted power over the hearts this people. But I heard the Lord ask this Leader to refrain and take a deeper spiritual route. I saw this leader as he withdrew and began addressing this demon, commanding these powers to be broken over this people.

Ephesians 2:2, 6:12
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:…

…For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

And again;

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Then the Lord said, “My child, It is not a battle of the flesh, refrain from your vain attempts and spiritually address the enemy.

Command the prince of the air to let go my people, break the course of this world in the hearts of my remnant by the power of my Spirit.

What you see is beyond the physical, Pray my child! Do not listen to the voices of the people speaking against by counsel upon you. It is beyond what you hear, there is a power exerting authority over them.

But I have given you authority, arise and take your land. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Be resolute and determined for I AM with you. Do not be silent, command, I say command these powers to be broken and usher in the revival.”

You Will Once Again Be Sought After

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We saw in our last discussion that we are heirs of God, we are no longer servants in bondage to the law. God is our portion and Christ our all is everything and in everything.

Then the Apostle goes on to say,
Galatians 4:8
Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

There was a time when the churches in Galatia were outside of Christ. In that state they knew not God and were slaves to Idols. They made service to them which by nature are no gods.

Observe this statement carefully, “them which by nature are no gods”

To be God is by nature. You cannot become God if you are not Him by nature. The same way you are born a woman by nature and cannot become a man, even so it is the same with being God.

Whatsoever God can do, his creation cannot do, they can only be done with his aid and permission, for there are no two sources to life. What do you mean pastor?

God as the uncreated is the only one with the nature of source. The only one with the nature of being. He is actually the only being. All creatures take there being from God.

Hence, God is the absolute sovereign of both the spiritual and physical universe. He is in absolute control of everything. (Please don’t write me a mail about this statement, a book will be out that goes into details when its time).

Outside of God, nothing exists, in reality they are no gods. To us who believe they are no gods.

1 Corinthians 8:6
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Observe the statement “of whom are all things.”

There is a purpose for everything you are going through. There is a grace in you the Lord wants to see worked out. It could be perseverance, endurance, longsuffering, faith..

I am not saying you should accept evil, No! He allows the enemy to test you so you can make the grace in you manifest.

The grace of faith to which you say No to the trials, you reject them and stay with the knowledge that God is good and has already taken away all our sorrows on the cross, no matter how long the temptation stays.

The statement made above “of whom are all things” is very deep. Not everyone believes there is only one God of which from him all things, It takes a deeper revelation to accept this kind of truth. But without this knowledge, fear is inevitable, your conscience will never be stable as the next verse says;

1 Corinthians 8:7
Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

By nature, there is one God who is even our father of lights to which from him everything.

No need to fear demons, there are no gods. They are not gods by nature. they are limited to only what God wills. No need to panic, we are today irreversibly blessed in Christ.

All things are working together for your good dear beloved. It may not look pleasing, but keep trusting, proclaiming your faith and looking up to our good God. He sure hears and help is coming your way.

See you tomorrow…

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a Christian who was in God’s will and on God’s work. I saw people come to observe but I could not see them committing themselves to this work, it was as though this Christian was forsaken.

But I saw that after a period of time, this Child of God was highly sought after, many people began working for this Child of God. Even hardened hearts came to help establish this will of God as this believer kept on doing the work.

Isaiah 62:11-12
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. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

Then the Lord said, “It may look lonely but do not be weary, for your salvation comes. It will not be like this always, I AM now rewarding you with my goodness.

I will fulfill my purpose upon you my self for I have separated you unto me, made you holy and redeemed you from the evil in the world.

I say to you my Child, I have not forsaken you, you will once again be sought after – for you are a city not forsaken.”

My Hands Are Opened Unto You

Fix your gaze upon the Lord. The escape route is to be satisfied with Jesus – for his person is all blessings.

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. We have seen so far from the fourth Chapter of Galatians that at the fullness of time God sent forth his son to grant redemption from the law.

Now we are the sons of God by the adoption of faith. Then it says;

Galatians 4:7
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

An heir of God? This is incredible. We are sons of God with power, possessing God as our inheritance. This is unthinkable. This is actually the unsearchable riches.

The Lord is our portion and not things. I have being training my heart to stay on God as my everything for a long period of time now, and I can bet you, there is no greater peace than that.

It has soaked into my system that I am becoming more careless about the things of this world daily.

I see God as My Wife, My Children, My Ministry, My Body, My Life. I do not see death, I only see life and that life is God. I am satisfied with him as my all.

I have practiced seeing him as my everything thing for a long time now until I am now living in that place of perfect peace today. It may go off just a few minutes but I am becoming better at it daily.

It takes a lot of effort to give long hours to just picturing him in your heart as everything to life. It takes letting go of a lot of things to keep your mind stayed upon the Lord for perfect peace;

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

But if you have lost the desire to become something, the desire to earn anything outside of him, you keep your heart on him as your reality, you will sure experience him as the life and Peace – for we are truly heirs of God.

Practice this for just a few days and you will sure send me a victory mail.

We will continue tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw this Child of God who was to meet with someone very high in the government for favour. I saw that she actually felt small and unqualified but a way was made for her by someone to see this government official.

When she did, Instead of her getting the result of her fears, she was rather favoured and I saw a cheque was prepared to offer her a huge sum of money.

When I saw this vision, I was reminded of the story of queen Esther.

Esther 5:2-3
And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.

Then the Lord said, ‘‘You have obtained favour in my sight, and I AM also giving you favour before Kings.

My hands are opened unto you my Child. Ask and I shall grant unto you – for it is your father’s pleasure to give you the kingdom. “

I AM Turning Again Your Captivity

The month of September is the month of Joy. You do not need to be strong before you can be joyful. Choose to be joyful and the strength will surface, for the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Yes, Gleanings from the book of Galatians. Yesterday we saw that the heir has no authority to rule until he grows to maturity. Hence, Paul says they were under the elements of this world Being governed until the time fully came for the son of man appeared for redemption;

Galatians 4:5
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Observe carefully the above language, “To redeem them that were under the law”

It shows above there was a particular set of people that were under the law before Jesus came. They were under the administration of works salvation before Jesus arrived. Not everyone was redeemed from the law. Many Gentiles today are just busy fighting for what has never been given to them.

What the Gentiles have received is the adoption of sons. We have become the sons of God through Christ Jesus. We came in by faith, we live in by faith in Christ and not by works.

Even those that were under the law have been redeemed from the law. This is a very strong word.

If the law were to the advantage of the Christian, why redeem him from it?

Dear beloved, we have been delivered from the law to be married to Jesus so we can bear fruit to God.

Romans 7:6
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

We are delivered from the law, it killed those that were under it, held them captive to its perfect demands. If you go under it today you, will still be killed. The letter kills but the spirit gives life.

We have been delivered from the law that “that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter”

We are not to serve God through the law any longer but in the new Spirit we have received. We are to worship God in Spirit and truth for God is Spirit. Now we are to be led by the Spirit and not by the law.

The law was never made for a Christian, the law was made for unbelievers. Before Jesus came, no one was born again.

1 Timothy 1:9
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

When you are advocating for the law, it is either you are self righteous; deceiving yourself you are righteous by the few standards out of the 613 laws you have set for yourself.

The law was not made for the righteous.

Today we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Holy and beloved. We now walk by the Spirit and not like those who were not born of the Lord who were to be schooled by the law.

God was not living in men as he does today. Hence, they were given carnal commandments to be governed by.

They were natural men, hence, they were given what their natural senses could comprehend. hear what the apostle says;

Galatians 4:6
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

The Spirit of God on my inside calls out to God 24/7. My Spirit daily yearns for God and not for sin.

My flesh may be tempted but my Spirit cries out to God all day long.

This is true for all Christian. God wants to govern us from the inside and not by the law, this is called relationship.

This has been the mind of God since creation.

God living in a man. Where you longer live, but God at work in you;

2 Corinthians 6:16
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Where you don’t go for sin, not because God will kill you, but because his love for you overwhelms the sin. You love him because he is full of love for you. You don’t want to hurt him because he loves you exceedingly, not because he is holding a whip over you. You have everything in him, so why lust for anything?

I tell you the truth, what keeps us is the love of God and not a lifestyle of works. We are admonished to keep ourselves in the love of God and not in our works for therein lies the true constraining power.

2 Corinthians 5:14
For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw someone receive back a relationship he thought was lost. I saw the Lord restore this relationship and it was more glorious than it used to be, to the amazement of this believer. I saw a feast been made, people were gathered in the house of this Christian feasting.

Job 42:10-12
And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

Then the Lord” I am turning again your captivity, Your better days are here. I am giving you double for your confusion.

It is a moment of your comfort, the relationships you thought were dead, I AM opening up these doors and bringing back your loved ones and all your associates.

Do not be weary, and do not ask, how? But rather prepare for a feast, I AM restoring you wholly – your latter end is better than your beginning.

You will live the rest of your life in prosperity beyond what you have thought or known ever in your life.

I Heard “Wear My Joy My Child” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Wear My Joy My Child

At this moment there is no need trying to observe whether the circumstances you are seeing have become the way they are because of some fault from you. No, never, bad things happen to good people.

God has never blessed anyone because he was doing all things right, God justifies the ungodly and this is called the power of his grace.

Yes, Gleanings from the Book of Galatians. Yesterday we rounded up on the third chapter, looking at our oneness in Christ as heirs of the same covenant through faith in Christ.

Now the the fourth Chapter opens up something wonderful again. It says;

Galatians 4:1
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

The apostle gives a very good analogy here, as long as the heir is a child, there is no distinction between him and the servant. He does not have the capacity to govern even though he owns everything by reason of heirship.

Galatians 4:2
But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

Observe carefully the last statement, “until the time appointed by the father”

He is kept under tutors and governors until the father sees him fit or matured enough to possess his inheritance.

He is kept under this position by the wisdom of the father, where the father also decides when the time is right for transitioning.

Galatians 4:3
Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

Now here is the revelation, before the time appointed for Jesus to arrive on the scene fully came, God kept the Jewish nation under the law. But observe what Paul says was their condition;

“were in bondage under the elements of the world”

The elements of this world here speaks of the law and the curses that came with it to which when they were under, they subjected them to a life of bondage.

They couldn’t demonstrate authority over the powers of the age because they were rendered unqualified, babies under the system they were under. But something happened;

Galatians 4:4
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

When the fullness of the time came, God sent forth his son. Made of two things mentioned above;

First, he was made of a woman.

This is a very strong language but it is a direct fulfilment of prophecy in the third chapter of Genesis. Jesus was made of a woman, not made of a man. He is a seed of a woman and not in reality the seed of a man. He was never conceived through the normal natural means. The spotless seed of God was – made of a woman.

This seed of the woman was the one destined to crush the head of the serpent;

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The serpent has bruised the heel of the son but he has now crushed the head of that old serpent. Triumphing over it by the cross to give us victory over the powers of darkness.

Secondly, he was made under the law.

A lot of people find it very difficult comprehending the teachings of Jesus and the teachings of grace as spare headed by Paul. In the hearts of some, even as I have heard them say, it is as though Paul contradicts the teachings of Jesus.

But this is false, Jesus was under a different economy. Jesus was under the law during his life time. He was made under it, until his death there was no new testament.

The new testament actually did not begin where we see it written in our Bibles “New Testament” No, never. The New Testament began when Jesus died and rose for our justification.

Luke 22:20
Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Observe carefully this statement above “This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”

They are two key things here,

First, the new testament is IN the blood not outside the blood. The blood of Jesus was not shed in Mathew Chapter one….

Secondly, The new testament began after the shading of the blood of Jesus. We were born out of his death not before his death. “Which is shed for you”

Hence, since Jesus was made under the law, some of his teachings were to deal with the condition of those who were under the law.

Remember the ministry of the law was to offer condemnation and death, hence Jesus magnified the law and made it honourable by exalting its standards to destroy the pride of the religious people of his day.

This is why it is as though the apostle Paul contradicts some of the teachings of Jesus.

But if you can see by the Spirit of revelation, there is actually no contradiction. You observe the audience, the context and so on…..

I have gone into details on this in my forth coming book The Truth About The Gospel when it comes out, get a copy of it to be well established in these present truths.

You can keep a watch on our website for when this priceless resource will be out.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw someone who was determined to be joyful in the Lord despite her circumstances. It was tough but I saw this person instead of going for her petitions she was desiring that the Lord rather establish her heart in the joy of the Lord.

I Felt the Love of the father for her heart’s desire and I felt the Lord beckoning on her to keep up the desire…

Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Then the Lord said “I understand your greatest heart desire, it is not to see your needs met but it is to fulfil my purpose upon you with Joy. My dear one, go your way, eat and make merry.

Celebrate your victory, reach out to as many as you can demonstrating my love. For I have heard you. I have separated your days unto myself and made them holy unto your God.

Do not worry about anything nor give into what you seemingly call shame. I AM now on the scene for restoration. Wear my Joy my Child, for therein lies your strength.”

I Heard “The Door is Now Opened Unto You” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

The Door is Now Opened Unto You

Yes, Gleanings from the book of Galatians. Yesterday we saw that the law was our school master to bring us to Christ, now that we are in Christ we are no longer to be governed by the administration of the law, but we are to live by faith in Christ Jesus.

Then the apostle opens up something beautiful in the following verses;

Galatians 3:26
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Oh, as Gentiles we are now sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus. We were never called through the law, we were never given the law in the first place, it was given to the Jews and not the Gentiles.

When we fall into the bondage of trying to earn God’s goodness through the law, we are outrightly denying our sonship through faith in Christ Jesus.

The devil is good at understanding these kind of things more than we know, we give him legal right to lay curses on us when we go back to put ourselves under a system we were never called under.

Before the introduction grace and faith in Christ we could not dare be called sons of God as Gentiles. But glory to the son of God, today we are admitted into the covenant through the grace of God. Now we can boldly declare by faith in Christ that we are the sons of God with power.

Galatians 3:27
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Incredible, the moment we receive Jesus, we are baptized into him. We put on Christ. We become hidden in him. When God sees us today he sees Christ. He sees the beauty of his son reflecting from us.

This why the groom can boldly say to us;

Song of Solomon 4:7
Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.

Indeed there can be no spot in us, for we are covered in the garments of salvation. We are covered with the robe of righteousness. O how we ought to rejoice;

Isaiah 61:10
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Galatians 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Wow, whether you are white, you are my beloved brother. Though you may be red, you are my beloved sister. Though you may be black it still does not change a thing, we are absolutely one in Christ.

Please Stop Saying Black Lives Matter, all lives matter. We are all one in Christ. That is a language of division. There is no bond nor free, there is no male nor female – for we are all one in Christ Jesus.

I love you dearly my reader, I hope you love me too, for we cannot be separated in Christ.

There is no difference between the Jew and the Greek. There is no special people in the eyes of God again since the introduction of the death of the son. We are all accepted and made equal in Christ.

Here Jesus is the only one special, only Jesus reigns here and not a particular race of people.

There is nothing again as a special seed of Abraham. No nation has a separate heritage from the one covenant of Abraham we are all beneficiaries from. There is nothing as – this people are the special and real seed of Abraham – we all are the seed of Abraham in Christ;

Galatians 3:29
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

See you tomorrow….

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw someone struggling to open a door, he was using his strength to open this door but it wasn’t easy for him, then I heard the Lord say to him “Stop.” And when he did, I saw the door slowly open by itself.

Mark 16:3-4
And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

And again

Revelation 3:8
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Then the Lord said, “I understand the greatness of what lies ahead of you. I know your struggles, I am acquainted with your sufferings. I am not angry with you – for I no you have little strength but you have held unto my word.

I say to you now my Child, stop the self pity, stop the struggle and keep looking to me. Do not turn back, the great stone you see before you is now being rolled away.

The door is now opened unto you my Child. Go forward with faith and hope in me.”
