The most difficult part of change.



Due to the fact that nothing in this life is by accident, chance or luck coupled with the understanding that there is an assigned time affixed to every matter, indicating that no situation can go on forever.

Then you must ask yourself, what is this temporary ordained situation preparing me for? Now, just pause for a moment and seriously think about all of the events and circumstances going on in your situation. Now let's take it a step further. What is it doing to your thought process, is it forcing you to see things differently, is it causing you to behave different?

You see my friend the physical part of change is quite easy it will always be the mental part of change that puts up the greatest resistance. In any event whatever your situation is doing, know for sure you're being prepared for what's coming, how you handle the preparation is another story!

When (not if) the opportunities of life present itself to you, it will be because of what you're learning or not learning now that will determine if you'll repeat your current situation.

My words of wisdom on this wonderful morning is simply this; take another look at your situation, only this time don't look at what it's doing to you instead view it as what it's doing for you!

The most difficult changes to make in life, is to change what you're mentally use to!

It will always be about connections!

Every result, every conclusion, every end or better yet, whatever position you’ve found yourself in right now,  will always be the sum total of the connections you have made or encountered during your journey to where you’re at, at this present time. Bottom line; whomever or whatever you have connected to has determined your end result.
 
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor, Ecclesiastes 4:9.
 
The word “good” in this particular scripture has become the hinge that has opened the door of revelation to the understanding of connections or whom or what we’ve joined ourselves to.
 
Now, the scripture begins by stating that increase, progress, multiplication, replenishing and the ability to advance quickly or at all, will require a connection (Two are better than one). To push the envelope a little further, that connection WILL automatically produce change or an alteration of what was seemingly normal in that person’s life.
 
This same scripture now takes an unexpected twist when it said a “good reward” will be as a result of their labor. The question that popped up in my head while studying and meditating on this powerful passage of scripture was why did the writer under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit use the phrase “good reward” why didn’t he say reward only and leave it as that?  Well, based on the entirety of the scripture I believe it will be fair to conclude that if two or more can produce a good reward then two or more also have the ability to producing a bad reward.
 
In essence, your connections will inevitably produce a conclusion or a reward but at the same time whatever we’re connected to will also determine the quality of what is produced from that connection (good or bad). Thus, any connection will not translate into an automatic good reward.
 
Indulge me for a few moments as we focus on the word “reward” which is used in the text. The word reward is defined as something given or received in return for a deed or service rendered. It also means to give or receive something in addition of what’s present. For example your Job may provide you with a bonus for doing exceptional service. Suggesting, you are being rewarded monies outside of your regular pay.
 
The point I am vigorously working my way towards is, our situations will become better or worse (reward) all because of what we have attached or connected ourselves to! Therefore, whatever we’ve connected to or become one with will either take from us or add to us, it will either make us better or make us bitter. That connection will either advance us or delay us, promote us or demote us. Again, our connections will continue to be the determining factor as to how things evolve and conclude in our lives.
 
At the end of the day my friend, we must be honest with ourselves and admit that whatever life has and is distributing to us; at some point along life’s journey our various situations required our co-corporation via our associations in order to produce whatever we’re faced with presently and by extension in the future. As proof of this, the last word I want us to focus on in the above scripture is the word “labor”. The word labor is defined as work. Now, this has becomes very interesting because the text clearly states that two are better than one because they have a good reward for “THEIR LABOR” or for their work.  So with that being said, it now suggest that we were working in harmony with whomever or whatever we were or presently connected to knowing or unknowingly to produce what we are presently challenged with or enjoying today. So the reality is, no one has done this to us, instead we worked along or in concert with that particular connection to produce what we have now. I know I may sound repetitive but it is all in an effort to cement this law into your understanding to provoke change in you.
 
I want to say to someone today, who has been in a state of confusion and depression for some time now as a result of this ongoing non-sense in your life; it is not by accident or chance that you’re reading this article. In fact God is literally providing you with the root cause of your displeasing matter and that root is what you have joined or connected yourself to, it is as simple as that.  I submit to you, that you could pray until the heavens come down, you could fast until you can’t fast anymore. You could be slain in the spirit service after service, speak in tongues, or do whatever it is that you do to give the appearance of joy or contentment in your life but as long as you are still attached to that person, place or thing it will continue to be the source or root of your misery.
 
In the words of Jesus Christ the greatest teacher that ever lived, “If thy right hand offend thee cut it off” Matthew 5:30. Which simply mean remove the root of what’s producing your end result of discomfort and unhappiness. The analogy that Jesus used is quite interesting because the hand that he indicated in the scripture is clearly needed but the point here is, if that one part is becoming a consistant problem for the whole it must be remove.
Who is it or what is it that you have become connected to that you know has been a source of misery for you but for some reason you have become dependent (financially or whatever) on that place or person that has now made you a prisioner to the misery that connection is producing for you?
 
Heavenly Father it is my prayer today that you surgically remove the scales of denial in the life of the one reading this prayer so that they would better able to see the source of the discomfort and confusion in their lives as a result of whoever or whatever they have associated themselves with. Lord let this be a day of revelation and complete understanding coupled with the confidence to walk away and never associate themselves with that connection ever again. Finally Father we pray that you will replace that bad connection with your choice connection to produce your desired results in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The Genesis of frustration


It is more than crystal clear that everywhere you turn in our society and by extension the world, it would appear as if we’re surrounded by hordes of intense frustration.

It is my desire today to point out to you my many readers that frustration is not something that should be taken lightly or viewed as a regular part of life. Instead, it’s a red flag in most cases indicating to its victim that something is terribly wrong. As with all of my articles, it is imperative that I place emphasis on the spiritual understanding that all things visible and invisible (natural or spiritual) has its origin in the spirit realm. Therefore to address our problems efficiently and accurately, we must then go beyond its tentacles (the obvious problem) such as what’s being presented to us and begin to go on a spiritual journey to discover the spiritual root of what’s causing the problem in the first place.

In our efforts to determine the beginning or genesis of our many frustrations we must now put emphasis on the laws that govern frustration. Just in case you weren’t aware everything is ruled or governed by law or laws. In fact, the behavior of anything, for the most part, is simultaneously revealing the laws that are governing its behavior. For example, if you were to throw a ball up into the air, you know just as well as I do, that that ball will automatically begin descending. Reason being the law of gravity dictates that whatever goes up must automatically come back down, so even though we don’t see the law, we surely see the effects of the law. So based on that example, we should ask ourselves what are the laws invisibly impressed upon us that are governing or dictating frustration in our lives?

Well, let me start off by saying that frustration will always be as a result of expectation not being met. Again, this is the visible side of it suggesting, it is just a branch of the root. The source of frustration which I mentioned must be spiritual, meaning that there is something that you can not see (spiritual) that is preventing the growth or forward movement of what you do see. What this simply means is that there is something spiritual preventing your God given natural and spiritual ability to grow or advance. Therefore as a result of this blockage frustration is manifested.

Everything in God’s creation was created to grow or to evolve as a natural part of its life existence, in fact, the word blessing in its simplest understanding indicates or suggest growth or expansion. Genesis 1:28 made this abundantly clear when God commanded Adam and Eve to be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, (suggesting continuous growth). So it is the law of God that man’s primary purpose is to grow or increase in every area of his life. Thus the path of his destiny was made obstacle free from day one accompanied with all the tools necessary to maintain forward progress. So, as a challenge to God’s original purpose for man’s continuous growth in all areas of his life Satan developed the art of distraction. The tentacles of this distraction are manifested in the following: delay, hindrance, stumbling blocks and obstacles that will always be revealed through people, places and things to frustrate man’s natural ability to grow all to pollute and re-route his destiny.

One of the first recorded acts of frustration in the Bible is found in Genesis 4:1-10. It is the story of Cain and Able, the two sons of Adam and Eve who both presented an offering before the Lord. It is recorded that God rejected the offering of Cain but accepted the offering of his brother Able. Now, observe the calculated process of frustration carefully. Cain now becomes jealous that God rejected his offering but accepted his brother’s offering. So he’s now discouraged. Consequently, God’s rejection of his offering would have made him feel as if he’s not growing in his relationship with God, just as if you were rejected in any relationship it gives a feeling of stagnation or non-progress, in other words, your expectations of proceeding forward with that person is not being met. As a result, Cain progresses to a state of frustration; this frustration if not dealt with transitions to anger which in turn is promoted to bitterness and unfortunately the death of his brother Able. The point I am attempting to make here is that it all began with the spiritual law of growth that is embedded in all human beings, that was being challenged to the extent that the growth necessary was not being accomplished which will automatically PRODUCE THE FRUIT OF FRUSTRATION.

Now, for a brief moment do a quick scan of your life and begin to identify all the areas that you are frustrated in. Now based on the revelation we have unfolded you should quickly realize that the lack of money is not the source of your frustration, your troubled relationship is not the source of your frustration. The trouble on the job is not the source of your frustration. Neither your church or whatever group or organization you’re having trouble with is the source of your frustration or whatever it is that you have identified as the source of your frustrating. A genuine source of your frustration my friend is your inability to expand, increase or simply grow in whatever area that you’ve found yourself frustrated in. As a reminder, frustration is just the result of the seeds of some force resisting your spiritual God-given ability to grow, that has manifested itself in the form of physical stagnation or stun growth. Your relationship is frustrating because you guys are not growing, probably because it was never meant to be. If something was not meant to be it automatically indicates it can not grow, so frustration becomes the inevitable.

On the flip side, frustration can also be seen as a positive, in that it is an indicator that you have exhausted your time and purpose with a particular group, environment or people. Meaning there is nothing more to learn or achieve there, so frustration acts as a guide saying to you IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON! THE REALITY IS, YOUR ASSIGNED TIME AND PURPOSE FOR THAT TIME, PLACE AND PEOPLE IS OVER! AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE AS A RESULT OF YOUR SELFISH DESIRE TO NOT RELINQUISH WHERE YOUR TIME HAS EXPIRED THAT WILL CONTINUE TO FRUSTRATE YOU. I have had personal experience with the above scenario, where friends mysteriously became enemies, and the environments that I loved so much began to regurgitate me from my once comfort zone. What I didn’t know at the time was the frustration it produced for me was pushing and shoving me to my next assignment or purpose. It was then that I also learned that nothing is forever and every situation is indeed preparation for something else. So in such cases, I thanked God for the process of frustration that advanced me to my NEXT! Which could possibly be the case for you right now?

I want to pray with you today, and my prayer is two-fold, and that is:

1) That God will remove every spirit that’s challenging your ability to grow naturally in your relationships, finances, business, education and in every area of your life.

2) That God will accompany you with wisdom to identify which frustration in your life are indicators to cut off what’s holding you back so that you can be released into your destiny.

Heavenly Father I decree and declare a spiritual injunction against the Enemy of our souls to prevent all spiritual attacks against our natural God given ability to grow in every area of our lives. Father, it is also my prayer that you equip us with the understanding to decipher when frustration is saying to us it’s time to cut and go forward. Lord, we thank you in advance and believe it’s done in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

STOP BEING PASSIVE AND FIGHT!


I become so annoyed when I hear lazy Christians make statements such as: “Well child I leave it to God”, “Well it don’t make no sense fighting’ this is God’s battle” “Anyhow this will work for my good no matter what they do”.

I want to make abundantly clear that in spite of the above phrases you do have a role to play in the victory that has been assigned to you. The reality is your ordained victory will be solely based on your co-operation as it relates to your role in that particular matter. This phrase that is frequently used, “What God has for me is for me” could falsely give one the impression that no matter what happens they will get whatever it is that God has for them. This is a lie from the pit of hell calculated by the enemy to make you the lazy procrastinating believer, believe that there is no fight involved. This way of thinking my friend makes way for Satan and his host to devour whatever it is that God has for you.

What I am trying to say here is, Satan has the ability and right to not only re-route your destiny but to also misplace your end results that God has already declared as victorious, if you continue to passively sit back and do absolutely nothing. Nevertheless, his success will always require your full co-operation. So in essence you unknowingly become a co-conspirator  to your own demise.

Scripture says the following: “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning” Isaiah 46:9-10.

The above scripture is clearly stating that God and God alone have already declared all endings for the believers. However this does not indicate or even suggest that the Christian must sit back and relax as if the end that has been declared by God will be met without resistance. Satan will not aid or assist you in retrieving God’s best for you, as a reminder just in case you forgot, he is your ENEMY!

In fact scripture speak specifically to this illusive notion. “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way” Matthew 13:25.

So as you would have read, your laziness, passiveness, “so call waiting on God” or the mind set, that you have no role to play in this ON GOING SPIRITUAL WAR AS IT RELATES TO YOUR DESTINY AND DECLARED END IS ABSOLUTE NON-SENSE!

Many of you reading this right now have yet to receive the promises, the manifestation of the prophecies spoken over your life or any form of change in your life simply because while you were doing nothing (sleeping), Satan and his host were sowing well calculated seeds to ensure God’s declared end will not come to pass in your life but will produce Satan’s desired end for you.

The bottom line my friend, you are literally in a fight, unfortunately for you that fight is spiritual, meaning you can not see the devices of your enemy. Nevertheless, do not let this fool you into thinking there is no fight going on. There are so many misinformed and spiritually uneducated Christians who refuse to study and read the word of God for themselves. So as a result of that they become a casualty of war. I have literally met Christians that even when I would have given evidence of what the bible says about a particular matter, they would still turn around and say to me, "Well Pastor say so and so and I will go with that". Well my response to that foolish statement will always be that Pastor Jim Jones, David Koresh and many other misguided Pastors have led many to their death and quite possibly to an eternity in hell all because they refuse to read and study and compare what the word of God says with what their Pastors are saying.

At the end of the day we have been warned over and over again that our fight is not with people (flesh and blood) but our true fight is with demonic forces that are quite capable of manipulating Pastors, evangelist, Apostles and the like if they are open to them. Sometimes I sit in awe, when I observe leaders never encouraging their congregation to study the word. Instead their congregation is mentally saturated with emphasis on seed offering, first fruit offering, Faith offering, last fruit offering, middle fruit offering, cat offering, Billy goat offering and the list goes on. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHEN WILL THE CHURCH OF GOD TEACH THE PEOPLE OF GOD HOW TO WAGE SPIRITUAL WARFARE AGAINST THEIR RELENTLESS ENEMY THAT WANTS TO DESTROY THEIR LIVES ON EARTH AND DRAG THEM TO A CHRISTLESS HELL? Have your Pastor or church taught you about the spiritual armor of God that you should be dressed in everyday particularly before you pray, Ephesians 6:11, 13? Are you aware that you are suffering so many losses as a Christian because you are not dress for battle even though you’re fasting and praying?

What about the Angelic host God has given charge over you according to Psalm 91:11-12? Are you aware that in order for the Angels to fight for you, you need to speak the word of God because it is the only thing that they respond to according to Psalm 103:20? Are you aware that there is a principality (Demonic prince that rules a region) ruling over every country, community and family that's fighting ministering Angels from releasing God's answers to your prayers and your breakthroughs and also fighting the will of God for your life (destiny) Daniel 10:12-14? Are you aware that you can determine who these ruling demonic princes are ruling over your Family, community and country by the many evils being observed in the land, Proverbs 28:2? Are you aware that the word of God is literally sharper than any two edge sword in the spirit realm, Hebrews 12:4? And your faith is a literal shield in the spirit realm designed to quench the fiery darts of the wicked, Ephesians 6:16. I could go on and on but my point is how does the emphasis on sowing see prepare you for war? Trust me I am not discounting sowing seed. Instead I am saying, if I am taught the protocols and armor of spiritual warfare then I can prevent my SEED from being devoured before it ever has a chance to harvest.

As a reminder, Hosea the prophet of God speaking as an oracle of God said, "My people (meaning the people of God) are perishing (being destroyed, lacking, always sick, always broke) because they are lacking knowledge" Hosea 4:6. So at the end of the day Pastor Jim Jones who led almost a thousand so called believers of Jesus Christ to their death by convincing them to drink Kool Aid mixed with cyanide did not kill those folks. Instead it was their lack of study of the word of God that made them puppets to their puppet masters. Again scripture is clear, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD" Jeremiah 17:5.

There are many, if they could return from the grave, would tell you, “Put on the whole armor of God and declare the word of God against the enemies of your destiny and God’s declared end for every area of your life. I am going to kindly ask you right now to excuse me but I just have to say to you “GET UP OFF OF YOUR DUFF AND BEGIN SPEAKING CONSISTENTLY THE WORD OF GOD AGAINST THE DEVOURERS OF YOUR DESTINY IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! Whether you believe it or not there is an invisible army of darkness fighting your destiny and the destiny of your love ones every step of the way, unfortunately due to our ignorance we assist them with this.

Make no mistake the enemy is planting seeds against your destiny while you’re sleeping or while you've decided to take the passive approach and the evidence of what he has done will manifest itself in your future defeats and re-routed destiny. I beg you this morning begin fighting by learning how to fight and learning how to fight requires you studying your war manual which is your BIBLE!

FATHER WE CURSE EVERY SPIRIT THAT’S EATING AWAY AND POLLUTING OUR EXPECTED END AND RE-ROUTING OUR DESTINY IN THE MATCHLESS NAME OF YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST! WE COMMAND EVERY SPIRIT OF IGNORANCE TO BE REMOVED FROM EVERY BELIEVER IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN!
