THE WEEKLY NEWSLETTER OF CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTRE, THAMESMEAD
We are in a season that is very peculiar to men of understanding. Those who are discerning will know we are at a thresh hold of something significant in this house. We cannot afford to miss it for the time of our master’s return is just here, it is upon us. We cannot afford to grieve the Holy Spirit by not following the pattern of heavens in everything. “ The lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until i make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth”(Psam 110:1-3 KJV). The pattern of heaven is without struggle, because it’s not by power or by might. He has declared that i will have mercy on whom i will have nercy, i will have compassion on whom i will have compassion, if therefore He has decided to choose us, hand pick us for His purpose, we cannot afford to be ignorant. “ if ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:” (Isaiah 1:19 KJV). Are you willing to lay all at His feet, for the manifestation of His glory? “The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation). And there shall be stability in your times, an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge: the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is your treasure and His”. (Isaiah 33:5, 6 AMP) “ The Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure”. (Isaiah 33:5, 6 KJV( “How great the LORD is! He rules over everything.
He will fill Jerusalem with justice and integrity and give stability to the nation. He always protects his people and gives them wisdom and knowledge. Their greatest treasure is their reverence for the LORD.” (Isaiah 33:5, 6 GNT) “ The Lord is honoured because he lives on high. He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness. He will be the foundation of your future. The riches of salvation are wisdom and knowledge. The fear of the Lord is your treasure”. (Isaiah 33: 5. 6 GWT) “The Lord is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure”. (NIV) “Ask of me, and i shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” (Psalm 2: 8 KJV) “ Ask me, and i will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psaml 2: 8 NIV).
God is jealous over you with great jealousy if your heart is positioned in His direction in agreement with His purpose and counsel. It’s time to know why we have companied together for so long. Is it to entice ourselves and glory in the flesh? Or what to consume upon our lust? It’s time to trust God for precious and eternal things. Give me this mountain says one of the sages of old-Caleb in his old age. But we do not understand how fickle the human nature is, the Adamic, human nature, the lower nature cannot be trusted and trained. I mean it’s unfaithfulness by viture of being unreliable, treacherous, faithless, false, it’s inconstancy, infinity, unfaithfulness – the human nature is unrepentant and cannot be depended upon. It is very diabolical in operation, the only solution is the cross. Spiritual truth is not easy to grasp, but experience has taught me that God’s words taken into the heart and meditated on with prayer help the soul by degree to understand the truth. And secondly, be assured that only through the continual teaching of the Holy Spirit in your heart will you be able to appropriate spiritual truths. The great work of the Holy Spirit is to reveal Christ in our hearts and lives as the crucified one who dwells within us. “ 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.” (1 John 4:4 KJV “Though the LORD is very great and lives in heaven, he will make Jerusalem his home of justice and righteousness. In that day he will be your sure foundation, providing a rich store of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the LORD will be your treasure.” (Isaiah 33:5, 6 NLT).
The reverential fear of God is what under guards the Holy Spirit to disburse the inheritance in Gods treasure house unto His children. The key for possessing the gates of the enemy is not in riotous living, but in the purity and holiness to disarm your enemy before your very eyes. “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resist the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Clense your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” (James 4: 6-8 KJV). One great key is complete submission to the authority of His word, not pick and choose. “The LORD is my shepherd; i have all that i need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he lead me beside peaceful streams, He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, i will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and i will live in the house of the LORD foreve”. (Psam 23: 1-6 NLT)
All that is ours and has been given to us in Christ Jesus are delivered and packaged wholly for our possession, spirit, soul and body. We are preserved to serve God for His purpose in this end time. “God instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the year of thy life shall be increased.” (Proverbs 9:9-11 KJV). We are in a unique time and season very peculiar that must not be taken for granted. We must co-operate with God for what has been settled, Is it a challenge in the area of health? Healing is children’s bread says the Lord. The season we are in is by faith; faith alone in the finished work of the Lord Jesus, we must be ready to fortify our hearts to believe God for all things and everything He has spoken to us as a church “Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephen, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours: And ye are Christ’s: and Christ is God’s.”(1 Corithians 3:21-23 KJV) “That no flesh should glorify in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorietth, let him glory in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:29-31 KJV). “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1 KJV)
