Re-Inspire Me

Dear lifeofastranger it’s been a little over ten weeks since your post on the fight of faith. From what I recall, it was filled with words of proclamation, and things you were not just hoping but was speaking will happen in your life this 2010, and in mine if I believed. I was hoping to find out how far along the list you’ve seen, and if indeed, it has come to pass.

Wow!! Has it been ten weeks already since my first post of 2010, and twelve weeks since the beginning of the year? Dearest reader, I am so pleased to hear from you, and even more so now. You see, as I wrote then, and still writing, this 2010 has and will not just be an ordinary sort of year for me. So much has happened in these past ten weeks, and I’m not quite sure where to start from. You see it all started like this:

I had heard that there was a sound of heavy rain (1 Kings 18:41), and so I went about preparing myself in readiness for the rain (just like Jotham did in 2 Chronicles 27:6) by believing. I was told to write down what was coming as a result of this heavy down pourHIS promises of restoration (Joel 2:23-27), increase and promotion (Isaiah 60:1-3), open doorsand hidden treasures (Isaiah 45:1b-3), undeniable, unstoppable, unfathomable miracles, a time of rejoicing, a time of unending testimony, a time of uncommon breakthroughs PLAINLY for all to see, and to run with it, because the appointed time to favour me ( that is you and I) was now (Psalm 102:13). And so I ran as fast as I could only stopping to tell those I found on my way who wondered if I had gone quite raving bonkers, what the Lord said He was about to do in our lives. I believed His word, and so I spoke IT.

Has it all happened as He said it would happen? Am I still ringing forth with a dance? CERTAINLY!! I am still jubilating, and learning all the necessary break-dancing skills. I am still declaring that God is a GOOD God, for if you knew how far He has brought me, and where He is taking me to, you too will praise God on my behalf. For it has all been like a dream, and He has filled my mouth with laughter, and my tongue with songs of Joy. And everyone who sees me can’t seem to stop speaking of the Great things God has done for me. King of Glory, Lord of lords, has indeed exceeded my expectations and has brought to pass His words concerning me. Words spoken in the secret, plans He had forged without my knowledge, revelations which He had given me a glimpse of before hand – He continues to remain faithful, and TRUE.

Am I experiencing the reality of life? A resounding YES! It’s all real, no more religiosity of life; or how else will one see the difference that God has made in my life. For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power 1 Corinthians 4:20.

Don’t give up just yet. KEEP RUNNING with the VISION. I heard and therefore have I believed. I believed and therefore have I spoken it. SURELY YOU and I have a delightful inheritance (Psalm 16:6). He who never slumbers nor sleeps is more than ABLE to bring His words to pass in your life. I am a living testimony of that FACT and TRUTH. You will yet see with your very own eyes what the Lord, CREATOR of the ENTIRE UNIVERSE will do in your life this 2010. And He does not show favouritism(Acts 10:34).

We are still marching forward! We are still on course. We will not be unnerved because of the promised down pour we have yet to see. We have heard the sound of heavy rain, and we know without a shadow of a doubt that the clouds are definitely rising on our behalf.

The Mathematical CODE to Life!!

What truly amazes me is when you ask the Lord for something and it happens. As in just like that. I know after everything He’s done for me and continues to do for me, He still surprises me even with the little things. Today is no different than the others, and I woke up feeling like.. Wow.. God You truly rock you know!!

OK :), back to today’s post.. Yes where was I? My last post was indeed very close to my heart, championing God’s biggest cause, which is His love for you, but today’s is a little different from the last. You see I was reading the book of Acts where in Acts 13:48 it says – “When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed

It got me thinking, as in really thinking, you mean there is mathematical formula for eternal life, which can be summarised as follows: if and only if you hear and honour God then you become appointed for eternal life (this is the code for the equation). This Code is so simple, not as complex as what you may be led to believe.

But you may ask what was it that they heard? It was the message of Jesus Christ, the LIVING WORD of God – who in the beginning was the WORD, and was with God, and was God. He was with God in the beginning John 1:1-2 – the WORD who in the beginning was God, had been spoken in their midst. They heard the “WORD” and honoured it by accepting it. Now the people in Acts 13:46 had judged themselves unworthy of eternal life by rejecting the “WORD” and dishonouring it; but the Gentile people of Acts 13:48 who had accepted the “WORD” after hearing it understood what this meant, an appointment with eternal life.

But you may ask, does that mean that there may have been some of the Gentiles present that where not appointed? You see because they heard the Word and honoured it by accepting it; they automatically became appointed for eternal life because they believed the “WORD”. Now going by this, it means therefore that those who are not appointed are people who do not hear the Word (either by rejection (Acts 13:46), or malicious accusations).

But you may say, being appointed, and actually entering it are two different things; for indeed many start well but don’t actually carry on in the Faith. That is true, that is why it is very important for us to continually hear the word and continually honour it. And the only way we can continually hear the word is by meditating on the WORD day and night and not letting it depart from us (Psalm 1:1-3; Hebrews 4:2; Psalm 119:97-98; Joshua 1:8; Colossians 3:16).

I truly understand that it may be difficult to hear and honour the “WORD” of God by believing because of our intellectual culture and all the scholarly books written on why we ought not to hear the “WORD”. But the fact that there has been over the centuries countless documentation on the existence of the WORD or its supposed lack of isn’t that enough for the intellectual among us to sit down and truly ponder. After all, if we can all attend conferences to meet like minded people to spruce up ones intellect, don’t you think pondering upon the LIVING WORD something worth thinking about?

I pray that this sentence does not describe you “Notwithstanding their intellectual culture were ignorant of the true God”. Being an intellectual is not enough of a reason to be ignorant of the true God. I lifeofastranger will not be deceived by what I see at the centre of learning.
