Our God is sovereign!

Not just in principle, but also in practice.
And that we have been endowed with Free Will, a gift that can either add value to our lives and humanity at large, or diminish it. 

Last week, I examined Prov. 11:14 & 15:22; using 1 Kings 22:1-40 as our Case Study. During the course of my talk, I stressed the importance of quality advice and guidance in fulfilling our purpose.

So, today I’ll be building on that foundation, this time with a closer look into the life of Micaiah, someone I see as an outlier. As with most of the prophets of old, I believe that those at fringes of their calling are about to be rewarded for their values, faithfulness, and vision.

So, we continue in the strength of our theme for 2016: Our Year of Plenty (Gen 41:46-49), as we plant seeds of prayers, prophetic declaration, and thanksgiving for 2017 (Our Year of Restoration).

We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions: 
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2

Spiritual Intelligence: Open Doors

I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Good morning friends. John wrote to the leadership of the key churches in existence in his era while he was in solitary confinement on the Isle of Patmos, exhorting them to be faithful to Him who called them out of natures darkness into His marvellous light. He wrote to them through spiritual intelligence with a view to prune and cut-off their branches; thereby, enabling them to grow and bear much fruits.

These churches were made up of pockets of believers mostly meeting homes, sharing the gospel and breaking bread together. They were under immense pressure from: the authorities, who were out to extinguish the flames of their new found faith; false teachers who were victims of the devil’s deception; popular culture; and their customs and tradition. This cocktail of obstacles were there to stifle their growth, and ultimately cause death.

With this in mind, the words of our opening verses begins to make more sense… The faithfulness of the audience in question was the catalyst for the Open Door set before them by the almighty Himself. In the words of Jesus:

He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.

Dear friends, as we draw close to the feast of Pentecost or Whitsunday (June 8th), The Lord drew to light the following verses to inspire prayers for Open Doors upon His church. These doors are for the corporate and individual advancement of His kingdom. Simultaneously, doors opened by the devil will start to get shut even as we see the rays of light from the doors of The Lord. These verses are excerpt from Paul’s letter to his friends in Corinth:

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

So, as we tarry into Pentecost, we will begin to witness a paradigm shift in the church. The veil of lies, fear, deceit and deception will be lifted off His church, and we will go on to posses our inheritance. Just as Joshua and Caleb brought good news from Jericho amidst fear from the other members of the team of spies, we ask in line with your word as recorded by the psalmist:

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.

Glory to God! Amen.

Spiritual Intelligence: Error Of Judgement

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Good morning friends. As I ponder over these instructions from John, I am reminded of the story of Achan. Following the death of Moses, Joshua became commander in chief, leading the people of God into the promised land. Unlike Moses, Joshua was to lead the people through many wars against enemy nations, enroute, and in the promised land. In the spirit of succession planning, Moses laid the model with the war against the Amalekites. He took to the mountains, and with support from Aaron and Hur he contended against the host of darkness, while Joshua led the armies of Israel in war.

Sadly, inspite of the great signs and wonders wrought by God through the hands of Moses, the children of Israel still doubted Him. Twelve spies were commissioned to go into Jericho with a view to carry out surveillance, and report back to the elders. They came back with conflicting reports: ten said it was impossible, advising that the mission should be aborted; while the other two said it was possible with God. These ten spies has assessed the situation intellectually and were probably right, hence their conclusion. And here lies the conundrum dear friends. When we solely rely on our minds in our decision making process, we place a lid on our spirit. As a result, we draw conclusions based on one version of the story. However, when we deploy our mind and spirit, the process becomes highly sophisticated – and this was exactly what Joshua and Caleb. Their spirits were active in the process, they incorporated spiritual intelligence. In the words of Paul on this subject, he made this statement to his friends:

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

So, as a result of error of judgement by ten spies, fear crept in and the nation was in complete disarray. In anger, God decreed that they would not see the promise land, so they wandered to their death in the wilderness.

Now back to Achan. When faced with the temptation of wealth and power at the siege of Jericho; sadly, he took his cue from his five senses. This lead to a significant error of judgement which costed the lives of innocent soldiers in the war against Ai. He paid with his life, he derailed his destiny.

For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
