Finding security in God’s eternal purpose for your life

I guess one of the greatest fears in life, is the fear of failure. Failure is defined as cessation {stoppage} of the existence of something. It could also be defined as the omission to do. It means to default or a shortcoming. Basically these definitions give a sense of an assignment or direction towards a set goal.  In other words, failure cannot be defined without a clear definition or direction of your set mission in life. The issue is how you understand or come to accept your present mission; this certainly defines how you conclude success or failure.  I deliberately introduce this definition to show you the relativity of failure and success.

Your judgment or understanding to what is defined to be accomplishment naturally defines how you see God, yourself and the world around you. With the same breath, your view of failure will certainly describe how you pursue success and relate with others around your life. Please note, I am not suggesting you stick with mediocre here. Mediocrity is not the culture of sound biblical Christianity and it must not be encouraged whatsoever. however, we’been shouldered  with the responsibility to systematically teach and lead people out of the vicious circle of poverty.

Poverty must be dealt with from the three dimensions of the fallen human nature; the spirit, the soul and the Body. Most time we tend to start by dealing with the body {material} aspect, instead of first dealing with poverty from its root source and then gradually move towards the outer dimension of its manifestation. Success and failure must be clearly and accurately defined by today’s Christian leaders so they can make the right spiritual and mental adjustment in their perception and representation of God’s purpose.

The next point I’ll like to mention is whoever or whatever defines your development or advancement in life defines your failure or success. Remember the definition of failure? If God is the one who has mapped out and defined the parameter of your destiny, he should definitely be the person defining your failure or accomplishment.  Defining your success or failure from the world’s popular opinion is doing great damage to your restored image and identity in Christ. Getting to define success from God’s kingdom perspective should be a fundamental doctrine within the core structure of the present day apostolic reformation initiative.

Our paradigm towards success and achievement must shift if we are going to represent the Lord before the saints and the world.  It should be ok for your brother to lack money or other forms of {ministerial} achievement and still be able to relate with those who have.  It should be right for you to move your resource to assist a struggling ministry without expecting a return.  People should not have to be in your camp or network for them to be helped.  Your brother should not feel less successful because his got a ministry with the membership of 20 while you’ve got 200.

What defines superiority in ministry is not the ability of the one who gathers the most but the access and proximity of one before the throne of the Father. Blessed are those who have been invited.   We have had teachings on your cairus time. May I announce to you that we all live in a perpetual cairus time before the presence of the Lord; whatever time the Lord chooses to interrupt the human calendar only gives people the opportunity to see what has always been there.

One’s calling should not be about your so called cairus time while your brother is anxiously waiting for his so called season of manifestation due to what he sees around. No, this should be about understanding the pattern of kingdom culture in regards to relationship. The truth is, some will never level up as they assumed. You and I will have to remain their covering until the last trump.  My brethren, there is a calling that precedes what is defined to be ministry today and that is the shared life of the community of the Saints-those who will inherit the kingdom. Christ centered relationship surpasses all ministry achievement. If you are building anything outside this you are building your own kingdom and it will fail.

Using success as a key to leverage yourself amongst a company of people the Lord has not prepared you for is like exposing yourself to high level satanic deception that will cause you to lose all you’ve built. Most time our physical material achievements do not equal the sustaining inner spiritual capacity required of us. the truth is, most Christian failure began when they tend to start succeeding. This is one of the reasons why the Lord deliberately withhold certain things we desperately think we need even in ministry. He knows our thought from afar, the prayers and unending fasting are only motivated by the needs to prove a point.  One who has not journeyed the road of wisdom will be quick to judge the request of King Solomon, yet this is one of the greatest prayers anyone can pray.

Prov 30:7-9  Two things have I asked of You [O Lord]; deny them not to me before I die: 8 Remove far from me falsehood and lies; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me,  9 Lest I be full and deny You and say, Who is the Lord? Or lest I be poor and steal, and so profane the name of my God. [Deut 8:12,14,17; Neh 9:25,26; Job 31:24; Hos 13:6.] AMP

Do you understand why the Lord instructed the Israelites to take of the daily portion they can eat of the manna except the day before the Sabbath?  He was teaching them the concept of truth and obedience.  The community of God’s people is not defined to be independent; rather we are called to inter-depend on each other. This means that spiritual relationship must be the driving force of the engine of the Church’s advancement.

This is one of the reasons why the enemy takes advantage of our pride and selfish attitude to perpetuate his evil act amongst members of the Body. We pretend and say things we don’t mean only to gain face. It is said the maximum span of most relationship in the body don’t last more than three years, why?  Our motive and desire is to use and dump each other as we climb the so called success ladder.

Like Saul, most can’t wait for the set time of the Lord; we need to do something to secure our success image lest we fail. The fear of failure made Saul step into an office that was not ordained for him. He decided to offer God a strange fire because he saw the people leaving him. When it seems you are going to fail by the look of things do you compromise God’s prophetic order or do you wait on the promise of his coming?  We have plunged ourselves and the people around us in an unnecessary spiritual warfare all because of our insecurity and lack of accurate self-esteem.  Our prayers are the result of a misguided or misdirected spiritual exercise we call spiritual breakthroughs.  It is time to go back to the ancient path and find the direction to the city of rest.  Many church leaders have found themselves in the house of compromise because of the fame they are looking for. What is Jehoshaphat doing in the house of Ahab?   The search for glory and power has brought you to the place where your life, family and ministry has been exposed to the place where you are targeted by the arrow of the enemy.  

Are you secured in the God or in what you have built in his name? This is a question the Lord is asking his servants all across the globe today. Many have been derailed from the approved way that leads to ministry rest while they are deluded that they are on track. In most cases the drive and rigorous passion we see Christians and some of our church leader’s exhibit in trying to achieve, especially in ministry, is not because they so love God and are ready and willing to do anything to see the glorious eternal purpose of the Father come to pass.

Their drive for success might just be a deep inner cry for help because their entire world is caving in. The lack of security and rest in the invisible one pushes our leaders to constantly seek for fig leaves to cover up those naked areas of their lives. It has become an enigma not to be seen building or doing something all in the name of God. It’s amazing how people folk to the approval of what is seen with the naked eyes as success without understanding the foundation of the so called success.

Christian leaders can’t understand why they must wait and do nothing of their own strength. They are not secure in the Father’s eternal process and concept of success. They can’t afford to be seen not to be producing or like we usually say today; advancing. So they must fashion out breaks for building towers that God will still bring down at the end of the day because it’s all rebellion in his sight. The book of Hebrews gives us the precise apostolic pattern of what ministry is and how we ought to engage our heart in this sacred calling lest we become a rejected vessel. God is busy looking for a faithful priesthood who will not only do all that is in his heart but will also walk away from what he the Lord has not called for. how many time Jesus walked away from people who needed his healing power? yet it was the will of the Father.

Can you walk away from sacrifice the Lord did not call for? It’s time we stop trying to impress the world and ourselves with our fig leave type of ministry and rather start producing the abiding fruit of righteousness. The quest for success has turned many church leaders to beasts. They will do anything to maintain a false ministry ground. Mind you, God’s definition of success is completely different from the worlds view and you should be on Gods side in the kind of tools and skills you are using to build. You can’t import the world’s value system to drive the building of your life and ministry oh man of God. I hear the Lord whisper to my ears, the storm is coming and everything that has been built in my name without my approval will become debris.

Xenophobia and its solution from biblical perspective

A look at Xenophobia From a biblical perspective

Matt 24:4-81v

4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. NIV

Introduction

The scripture above gives the foundational sequence of a high-level prophetic process, which defines the present season of humankind. This moment in time carries the seed of a future, designed in various prophetic paradoxes that would continue to bugle the minds of the blind and the spiritually uninformed. The reality of Light and darkness that presently coexist is not a new phenomenon to a well-informed bible student.   What will continue to challenge the philosophy of ignorant Christian will be based on how darkness, the operating system of this present world will assume authority that seem to defy their faith in the Lord.   The plan and strategy of the Lord in the process of reforming and restoring the hearts of the nation back to his ultimate will, is not one that can be clearly understood d by the unregenerate mind.

 The wisdom {the total summary of human operation} of this world, the word of God informs us to be devilish, sensual and self-seeking. Such is the philosophy behind what men terms to be wisdom. This definition of solution carries no insight or capacity to resolving the challenges of man. Acknowledging the wisdom that comes from above and making the best use of it in dealing with issues either from a personal crisis to a more global complex challenge should be the goal of all true spiritual leaders.

The coming of one kingdom means the collapse of another

The platform of dealing with these issues, like that of the ongoing xenophobic reality in South Africa must be solidly built on the backdrop of perfect understanding of the mind of the Lord in regards to the appearing of his kingdom within the earth {flesh} of men.  The birthing or the manifestation of the kingdom of God will continue to challenge everything, humans have held dearly as a concept of an ideal or perfect community. The theory or philosophy of the wisdom of this world clearly does not have the kind of value system that fosters peace and unity within a human community without the express involvement of the knowledge and wisdom that comes from above.  The more the saints pray, the Lord’s kingdom come and his will be done on earth as it is done in heaven, the more we are going to witness the fall and total collapse of weak character and unrefined human nature throughout the earth.

 This will manifest in various ways that will eventually make the kings of the earth cry out for help. This is not a strange thing; the entire bible is filled with this patterns and concept. The world system never reaches forth to her savior until everything she holds is almost in ruin. This is the story of Joseph in Egypt, Daniel in Babylon.

 Within the ongoing collapsing of the unrefined spiritual and moral human structure, the Lord is building a new society; completely designed, patterned and driven to govern through the internal nature and values of the second man, the Last Adam. The truth is the Church of Christ in the earth is not sent to compliment other religious affiliations but to set a new standard of living amongst humans that will give people clear direction to how life should be lived according to Gods standard. What a glorious day we live in as Sons of the kingdom, born in due time to regain their position and inheritance of dominion as the Christ’s life takes full expression within them.

The duty of a prophet is to connect through revelation, events both personal and global to the present position of truth.  In other words, the truth in God’s word becomes the litmus test of both national and global events. All occurrences, no matter how relevant or irrelevant they may seem to the ordinary human sight have their consequences in the overall destiny of a nation or region. When we lose sight of the mind of the Lord, concerning either where we are as a nation, family or ministry we allow the enemy to gain the upper hand.  As we all know, truth in principle is constant, never changes, yet the realities around her are constantly changing through its effect.  There are those assigned for the ministry of handling truth that brings clarity and direction to human lives. The more these people function and advance within the parameter of their ministry the more nations and regions come in alignment to the Fathers eternal purpose.

In this article, I will try to consider the various views, facts and factors that should help in re-gaining the right prophetic perspective in dealing with the issue of xenophobic attacks here in South African. When I say prophetic, I am relating to the very operating system the Lord uses in directing and determining His course of agenda within the core structure of a nation.  There has been a direct prophetic plan of God for this nation since her inception and there is no doubt about the enemy’s persistent plan in trying to frustrate that plan. This means that our view, has citizens {dwellers} of the nation requires precise spiritual calibration {maturity} in judging the present xenophobic situation lest we allow the unregenerate soul to impact our judgment. There is a specific program assigned for this nation according to her destiny that must be fulfilled in alignment to the Father’s desired plan as the world moves into the next season of her birth pangs. The raising of nations {ethnos} against each other according to the word of God is the beginning of the birth pangs and not the end of the world like most theologians and end-time preachers have presumed.

Laying prophetic foundation

This prophetic insight about the days we are in should prepare every believer, irrespective of his or her cultural or racial orientation for the battle ahead. Kingdoms have begun to rise against kingdom as it was prophesied. Those without the Lord’s mark are being recruited by the enemy to fight and kill their own brothers. What a revelation of the days we are in! The fragility of what is defined to be humanity; nationhood and religion are just too weak to sustain the true culture of unity especially when economic famine and other forms of human and natural disaster increase in the earth. God is busy testing the foundation of what we call a nation. He is shaking the wrong concepts and values we define to be human society.

For the scriptures declares, we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Are you part of that kingdom? If you are not, you will certainly be shaken in this season. Mind you, flesh and blood {human system} the scripture says is not permitted entrance into the kingdom. The meaning of the statement, Kingdoms rising against kingdoms defines to an extent the end of imperial ideologies and philosophy that once governed and define human’s standards of existence.

What was once accepted is now collectively being rejected today as regions continue to break away to form new coalitions in the name of destroying the repressive political and economic power of the west.  We cannot develop the right mental and spiritual capacity if we do not understand the concept of accurate biblical interpretation as they relate to the destiny of nations, regions and people.

When the soul is allowed to rule

The blooming of humanistic concepts of existence is ushering into the nations, reigns of demonic activities that will make governance almost impossible to the best of the best brains.  The battle between the spirit and the rebellious human soul will continue for many days to come until the Spirit man finally regains his place of authority and dominion. Those who continue to press into the lifestyle of the Spirit has the daily yield themselves to the power of the cross will gain daily ascendant power to crucify their flesh. Believers who are deceived by allowing the gravitation of their present earthly geography and location to define their values and passion will become captive of the spirit of the age.

The power and authority of Babylon is embedded within the cultural and racial pride. There is a fine line between patriotism and idolizing you nation. Living within the ambiance of the Holy Spirit’s instruction and guidance will help you to identity this divide as you gain spiritual maturity.  This is true maturity; to understand the paradox of your existence, while you live here in the world; you are not captured nor governed by the values and traditions of the world’s system around you.   The keeping power of the living word maintains your sight to where you came from and ultimately where you are returning some day.

I am proudly a Nigerian living in South Africa completely alien to the humanistic form of the system that defines the cultural and traditional existence of the two regions. I clearly understand my position and birth as a Nigerian in the light of my prophetic purpose for this great nation South Africa.  I have prayed and labored in the Spirit for almost 12 years before I was sent into this great white field called South Africa. The love I have for this great nation can only be compared to the Love I felt when I gave my life to the Lord several years ago.

A great price was paid in training and releasing me to this nation that can’t be compared to anything money can buy. It certainly will take a person who has been processed by God’s purifying fire to explain what it means to be sent to represent God’s purpose from one end of the world to another. Unfortunately, very few Christian ministers, especially in this part of the world can comprehend such, due to their short sightedness of the global purpose of God for the region.

What church leaders preach and teach irrespective of their denomination does to a great deal impact the overall perception of the church community, which is obviously of the broader society. It is of a great importance to the Lord that his ministers clearly represent his purpose and desire according to laid down biblical principles. Isolating the gospel to one aspect, region or class of people is sin before the Lord. The mission of church leaders in a society is to help broadening the mentality and perception of their members to clearly see and relate to the life and dealing of God in people irrespective of their color, race or sex.  When Church leaders start, teaching this spiritual reality in the developmental stage of the Church, their views and understanding of foreign mission workers will definitely start changing.

There will be a clearer understanding of why people migrate from one nation to another. I brought out this point to confirm that xenophobia also exist within some of the church structures in the nation, just has apartheid rulers used the religion {the Church} to promote their Nazism spirit. Unfortunately, this apartheid racial spirit still persists in the heart of some of the spiritual leaders and this I do believe fuels the evil of racism in the nation of South Africa.

In most cases, reconciliation demands that we face the truth headlong. As much as we only speak concerning these issues on a surface level, we only delay the true healing process. We all come from different places to represent the same God in our unique ministry callings and gifts. The Lord’s house {ministry} is not built on one-sided gift; it must involve and revolve around all ministry gifts.

Identifying true ministry gifts is not an easy thing especially in an instance where the enemy has managed to infiltrate the spiritual gate of the nation. Everyone who comes in the name of the Lord becomes a suspect of falsehood gospel. This attitude without the proper spiritual insight can make a nation reject those truly called and sent in helping to rebuild her broken wall and gates.  The enemy of the gospel is good in using counterfeit and deception in confusing and contaminating the hearts of those willing to accept the true gospel.  The enemy never stops in trying to frustrate the purposes of the Lord around the nation.

Political root of xenophobia

There is no doubt the nation has made some key landmarks in trying to reconstruct the process of her democratic destiny since 1994. What is yet to be seen in practice is the translation of those beautiful written policies into a powerful working tool that turns the daily lives of the ordinary citizens into a successful story. I should think anyone who truly desires not just to see the end of this horrific nightmare called xenophobic attacks, but also want to witness a lasting social political transformation should be interested in the core root of the attack. While one cannot rule out the political undertone in the attack, it is also a common truth that poverty and injustice are a good breeding ground for social unrest.

It becomes worrisome when a person{s} can cold-blooded kill another person because they feel threatened by their presence. How do we start addressing such state of evil within the human conscience? When people lose their sense of humanity in the name of a phobia is nothing but a manifestation of a well-seated evil in the heart of men.  The bottom-line question is still yet to be answered; are we dealing with a politically motivated attack sent, to strategically destabilize the young fragile progressive democrat process of the nation or a satanic attack against the Lord’s prophetic agenda for the nation?

The spirit behind this so-called phobia is the spirit of fear manifesting through pride and hatred. Isolating xenophobic attract from the highly complex social dives in the nation, is like taking a penknife to fight a battalion of army.   Look at the definition of xenophobia, which simply means an unreasonable fear of foreigners or that which is foreign or strange. One immediately gets the ideology behind the attacks. What is fear? What motivate such fear? Yet this attack is not unique to foreigners alone in the context of the social state of the nation.

There is still a sharp division among South Africans themselves; all you need is to listen to the conversation of the different ethnic groups here. The colored have this deep routed hatred for the blacks. They believe the reason they don’t get employed is because of the BEE program that only seem to favor the blacks, while the white just hate the fact that the black are the ones ruling today and they seem not to understand anything about leading a nation while the black have this sense of delusional pride of thinking they will always have the control of leading the nation, even when the parties are not delivering on the promise they made to their own voter.

While the Asians seem to be the go in between of the fractured relationship, I see them has both king makers and peacekeepers who seem to have a better and a clearer position of their role in the destiny of the nation and they might just one day lead this great nation. I guess the term the rainbow nation remains a futuristic {prophetic} description of tomorrow’s South Africa. {Mark 3:23-25 24}  If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.NIV

The Nation and its destiny

Just has individuals and families are called, prepared and commissioned for precise kingdom assignment, so do nations and regions across the earth carry unique prophetic schedule according to the timing and injunctions of the Spirit. Unfortunately, the kind of Christianity we have today seems not to encourage members to pursue such spiritual knowledge.  Christians know very little about God when it comes to His prophetic affairs for their cities or nation. Individual lives are divinely wired to connect to the destiny of a nation or regions they have been assigned. Everything about their live, directly or indirectly is driven towards the core purpose of the Father for the nation.

Now it takes the ministry of a true prophet to inform, develop and shape people’s mentality to start seeing nations and regions from this kind of perspective. In most cases, very few people understand the connection of their spirituality to the destiny of a place, people or region. Nationalities, race, tribes and geographical boundaries without understanding why the Lord allows or permits those differences blind carnal, fallen humans. God set people and countries where they are for the glory of His purpose to be unveiled at the fullness of time. Nations are like the Lord’s church designed for different mandates in His counsel.

The church the Lord positions derives her purpose and vision power within the core spiritual structure of the region. The Lord, in His prophetic purpose raises and equips a prophet in Ghana only to send to Mali to go and fulfill His mandate. It takes maturity to know that as believer we do not attach our lives to physical locations even if that is where we are born. The fact that you are born in a place does not mean your life should be attached there. God uses the dynamic of a city or nation to shape His own people for the place He will send them.

The concept is like John the Baptist who was born within the religious system of his day; his father was actually a priest within the order yet john would not entangle himself with the system, why? He clearly understood his mission and destiny in regards to the city. While he lived within the geographical region of the nation, his life was an enigma to the social and cultural order of his people. What a prophetic sight displayed by this prophet. While he did everything to bring peace, joy and tranquility to the people, his eyes were focus on who has been designed to be on the inside.

1 Peter 2:11-12

11 Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. NIV

Alien to this world

Though he was a Jew like our Lord Jesus Christ, yet everything about their lives was totally opposite the culture and religious norms of their day. The spiritual paradigm and reality of the kingdom they belong was just too strong to be contaminated by their natural nativity.  When so-called Christians still attach undue glory to their earthly race, culture, nationality and color of skin, it definitely shows they still do not understand what redemption means.

It is amazing to know that things like color, racial class and educational orientation are amongst what divides the Church of Christ today. How can the church lead good example when she is also divided. A kingdom divided against itself the scripture says cannot stand. Beyond xenophobia, I would like the church to see the real issue of division so we do not lose focus of the real enemy.

Until the issue of spiritual identity takes precedence over earthly race we will not be able to access the kingdom of God according to [1corthinans 15:50] Flesh and blood shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  Race, color or nationality is all divinely designed by the Lord to connect us to our earthly route so we can exercise our heavenly mandate. The anointing of Christ must rest on a seed born by the virgin Mary.

Mary did not birth the anointing but the flesh she birthed housed the anointing. This same concept applies to cities and nations. Your spiritual birth is your real position but as earth dweller, you need a form of genealogy to connect and identify the history of your earthly pilgrim. As the human body houses the spirit and soul of man so does, a nation or city houses the prophetic purposes of the Lord.

In God’s eyes the purpose and mission of a region or nation goes beyond what happens within the walls or boundaries of such place, it is beyond the legislative laws and cultural ties that bind the people together; it cannot be accessed through shared ideological frames of mind. It is a spiritual phenomenal that has to be understood by spiritually renewed minds. When man was created in the Garden, he was created as a spirit directly reflecting the image of God. The attributes of God’s likeness was the central theme of man’s life and nature.

From the position of life, we see authority and dominion given to him to rule over all that was within the garden except his wife and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. His fall and exit from the garden introduces humankind to what we can call an alternative way of life. A life designed to be governed through the fallen human soul. A soul in rebellion to the pattern and desire of the Father, everything fashioned after the fall as a key to human development including rulership were all designed to fail until the human spirit is alive again to bring the kingdom of God down to human affairs.

Understanding humanity

It is highly important the Church understands this concept of life if we must find a solution to the numerous complex challenges bewildering the nations. The people within a region must understand that what makes a nation goes beyond her geographical location, ideological beliefs economic power or cultural affiliations. The Lord allows people to coexist in communities for various reasons designed to expose the weakness of their humanity and to teach them how to live in the power of shared community. The study of humanity is not limited to the study of our racial or cultural differences but the brining to pass of God’s eternal purpose through a coherent concept of nationhood. God defines a nation through his desired plan for those called from darkness to light.

The redeemed human spirit does not recognize geographical boundaries as birds in the sky do not recognize national regions. When there is no solid, holistic biblical teaching in a nation the spiritual foundation of such a nation gets affected in such a way that threatens the prophetic agenda of God for the people. We have several prophetic utterances declared about this great nation but very little have been done to bring clear prophetic responsibility in preparing the nation for her destiny. This nation has journeyed through a season created by the Lord to prepare her for her day of manifestation. Like any other prophetic purpose, there must be a season of great warfare to test and rebuild her ability to stand in the day of restoration.

The blueprint of the Father’s plan for a nation is what defines their future enemies and victory. This reality must inform how they view themselves in regards to political and socioeconomic challenges, weakness, and victories. In other words, when a nation clearly understands her national destiny it helps galvanize the required human and capital resource needed to function within the context of her assigned global mission.  When there are no clear prophetic voices to amplify this mandate at the gate of a nation, the Lord certainly will use various occasions and events as His prophetic voice to create the right platforms that put His trumpet {message} on the lips of His watchmen assigned to introduce the nation to her glorious destiny.

Ezek 33:10-11

10 “Son of man, say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what you are saying: “Our offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of them. How then can we live?” ‘  11 Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?’ NIV

Regaining political freedom

When the nation regained her political freedom in 1994, it opened her up to vast level of opportunities both for development and her desire for re-integration with the rest of the world. Sanctions were lifted; investors began to pour in from various parts of the world including the African continent.  It was a time of great bliss to celebrate her democracy and the economy but the new government was cut off guard in that she did very little to prepare the social psyche of the nation for such inflow of foreign nationals.

This mistake of the government to a great deal contributes to the already emotionally fragile and marginalized black South Africans who viewed the foreign immigrants as invaders.   While the reality of BEE {black economic empowerment} is yet to filter down to most of the townships and informal settlements, except for Soweto.  Majority of the black South Africans were hoping that having voted to the ANC into power would automatically turn the story of the horrific past into a blessing.  This obviously was not the case at least not until now. This has led them to start feeling disillusioned and disenfranchised.

Note that most of the poor foreign immigrants living in South African are also found sharing in these squatter camps and townships that basically do not have any form of infrastructural capacity to accommodate both parties While the ideology of using force and aggression to resolve issues during the apartheid regime still lingers within the mindset of the people, it became the only remedy to force out their own African brothers even if it means killing. This wrong mindset of resolving issues with violence and criminal act has become a template that will certainly take awhile to defuse.

It is important to know that this violent cruel mentality is not unique to foreigners alone; it can be seen in the daily criminal acts committed in the nation.  The nation of South Africa is like a nation that just finished a long time battle, armies have been called back to the barracks, issues have been politically resolved but there are still unresolved issues {landmines} embedded in the hearts of the nation. Just one wrong move, these mines are triggered to the destruction of lives. How do we start defusing these landmines in the heart of men who seem not bothered about what happens to them anymore? Can we use momentary pleasure like sports to resolve a well-sited problem? There is nothing wrong in hosting the world cup and use it to boaster the moral of the nation but to believe its powerful enough to resolve the problem of about two centuries to me is disillusioned. Embedded systemic problem must be dealt with through the appropriate channels.

An unbelievable reaction

It has been two years since the nation of South Africa witnessed the first major xenophobic attack majorly on foreign black’s nationals. It came as a shockwave to many within and outside the shores of the nation. I could still recount the sight of this horrific and barbaric act, committed in the name of reclaiming lost jobs back from other foreign nationals who they claimed deprived them of their economic inheritance. There is no excuse for attacking innocent foreigners who came looking for opportunity is one of the key words for the 21st century society. Any nation or society that desires to be major key player in the present globalized economy must be ready to open up her nation. The policy of her immigration laws must be flexible such that human and capital resources have easy access.

The next human frontier will absolutely be borderless. You cannot live in the past and expect to be relevant in the future economic advance.  The Government must put structures on ground that can both educate and empower the mentality of her populace in regards to integration. The Government must prepare her citizens to challenge all forms of mental barriers that might want to limit her from opening up to the opportunities flowing into the nation. Yet this must be carefully done in the light of social and economic security. It is not a farfetched concept that an abused person can end up abusing other if the right prayer and necessary therapies are not applied.

This seems to be what is playing out here; a nation that was once abused under apartheid government today is seen to be using the same wicked principle against other foreign nationals to her own detriment.  How do you start explaining or justifying such barbaric act? Where is the humanity of these selected South African who go hunting down their unarmed fellow brothers?  How do you explain burning another human being in the name of trying to regain your economic power? The real issue of economic and political marginalization is still there unanswered.

Very few gains have been made since the ANC regained power some 15 years ago, promises of a better life for these marginalized and deprived communities is still a story of the future.  These people being used to perpetuate xenophobic attacks should realize they are only been used to stir an evil that will continue to hunt their yet unborn children.  The seed a man or nation sows he shall also reap in multiple folds. People must realize they cannot get away with evil, they might escape human justice but how do you escape the judgment of God Almighty?

Maybe there is something to learn from these immigrants

It is a shame to know it’s this same people they claimed to have taken their daily bread are the same people who provide the most needed services in the various communities. These are people who use their money to open mini mobile-shops. Shoe repair shops, these foreigners fix broken down cars and electronics mechanics and phones. Some of our South African brothers do not have these specialized skills.  I think the issue is more of jealousy, pride and anger due to their lack of skill. This is what the bible calls the Cain spirit. The spirit that kills his own brother because he seems to understand what the Lord demands.  This does not call for attack but to humbly offer yourself to learn from your brother.

Partially I do blame the government for not understanding the problem of their people and so could not offer the right solution. When we say we desire to educate our people that must be done in the context of self-empowerment. While it is good to open schools but we also need to recognize that education starts from building the right self-image especially when you look at the history of the nation. There is no doubt this nation is endowed with great wealth but about 70% of its people are uneducated.

There is also an urgent need for the government of South Africa to understand the skills and capacity of these immigrants and create forms and platform whereby these skill labor force cab help build capacity in areas that are mostly needed. When this is done in the spirit of care and love for one another there will be a great return from both parties. Collaborating resource and skill to build capacity is achievable.

The unanswered question

The question should be asked what skill we both share in order to build a better future both for nation and for ourselves. I personally know that there are lots of skill and information transfer the West Africans living here can offer their South African brothers.Building a mutual micro entrepreneur resource base here can help a great deal. We can definitely have a win-win issue in regards to the economic battle if the government will help to monitor such a project. No nation must live in a delusional mentality of thinking their nation cannot be destabilized. Zimbabwe is a very good example for us. This nation was once the food basket of the African continent but today the story is a different case. 60% of Zimbabweans are educated but are bricklayers here in South African.

This is unaccepted, African leadership must wake up to this humiliation of their people by putting stable government institutions in place in order to have sustainable and progressive development. Most of these foreign nationals are here due to bad administrative leadership of their government. It is not a disputed fact that Africa is the richest continent in the world, yet she stands to represent the poorest continent, what a paradox! What is wrong with some leaders who seem to see leading their country as their birthright?

To deal with these ungodly xenophobic attacks we need to look at it from the apartheid regime.  You may want to ask, what is the link between past apartheid racism and the present evil xenophobic attacks? Well, the links are numerous from refusing to recognize the humanity of the other race, to killing for economic and political gains.

As a Christian, I do believe that thing must be viewed from God’s perspective so we do not find ourselves siding the lies of the enemy. Accurate spiritual perception to issues like this helps in bringing the right solution.  One of the advantages we have as believers is the ability to see things from the spiritual point that gives us the advantage to know the right answer to deal with them. As I have said earlier, prophetic insight to the present condition of things tells us more about the desire of God for the situation.

This means that while we live in a material world like Daniel in Babylon we can also see both the spiritual and prophetic destiny of the nation.  While we do not deny the facts on the ground we also should not dispute the authority and power God has given to us to address things that seem to defy the power of human intelligence.  Everything crime perpetuated in the natural realm of life; be it racism or the xenophobic attacks all have a spiritual connotation, meaning there is a spirit in the high places marshaling these attacks to destabilize and frustrate the prophetic agenda of the kingdom of God within that nation.

The Lord’s prophetic plan

This is why the Lord assigns prophets and apostles over regions to counterattack this force while they are still planning their evil schemes.  Church leaders need to raise the level of their governmental judicial power over regions assigned to them in them.  When demons capture the authority of a ministry and turn them to a puppet theater that has not life or power to execute dominion, we cannot but witness such horrific manifestation in the land. The scripture tells us we wrestle not with flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Racism spirit was the machinery the apartheid regime used to manipulate, divide, steal, and try to destroy the destiny of the great nation. Today, that same evil spirit of Cain is intensifying its evil vice in the nation by using xenophobia to steal what God is spiritually building and releasing at the same time into this region. The prophetic destiny of this nation and her people lies at the threshold of understating her apostolic mandate over the continent of Africa and the rest of the world.

This city shall be built by the wood cuts from different parts of Africa. The Lord is deploying the best of craftsmen into this nation as Solomon’s get the stone cutter ready for the building of the temple of the Lord. Ministry gifts {those called by God} are being pictured in an accelerated way that will change the atmosphere over the land for the grand release of the sons of Cush into his grand glory. It will certainly take those who have been born of the spirit to understand the call of men from afar to complete the house the Lord is building within the heart of the nation.

This calls for a clear understanding of the spiritual dynamics of the season. The dragon called xenophobia-the spirit of fear will be destroyed as the church of the Lord starts responding through the nature of Christ’s love and grace to one another. For the Lord has not given us the spirit of fear. It must be dealt with from a position of soundness of mind. Rest and stability in the prophetic destiny of this nation will bring forth leadership to provide food and security to His people.

Therefore, it is time we see what the Lord is doing and stop responding to the laid down strategy of the enemy.   You will not see me again until you say blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Sight, prophetic understanding into the season of this nation is crucial.  Can the people of this nation see the coming of the Lord through the lives of these men and women who have been sent in the building project of the Lord?

When God proclaims a new day concerning the destiny of a people the enemy also responds to make sure such mandate does not come to pass. The duty of the elders at the gate of leadership is to strengthen and encourage the builders of the house of the Lord. When we lose sight of divine signals to mere humanistic political agendas, we become victims of deception.   God is sending crafts men to the nation and we are fighting them due to the lack of understanding. It is time to get a wakeup call.

What about praying against xenophobia

In most cases as when we are faced with life threatening challenges like this one, we obviously recline to the idea of prayer as some kind of magical charm that just instantly changes things.  Prayer is supernatural in nature and there is no doubt about its impact within the destiny of a nation, but should also be noted, prayer is structurally built on clear biblical principles and injunctions that must be adhered to if the required results must be attained. Please note; God only answers prayer with His invested interest. That may sound cruel to the ears of some people. However, it is the truth.

Unfortunately, many still do not understand the whole principle and process that informs effective prayer in dealing with situations. This misconception has made the ministry of prayer look burdensome and ineffective to some people. When we refuse to allow the Holy Spirit to groom our understanding to the point where our spiritman differentiates right from wrong, we would certainly assume issues from face value and then conclude what kind of prayer is suitable for the situation.  Things are not always the way them seem. We must to be sensitive to the voice and direction of the Spirit in discerning societal challenges. What makes prayer effective is not necessarily the need as it where but how the Lord will have us approach the situation from the deposits of spiritual knowledge and principle.

What Christians have been doing is trying to use prayer as a shortcut or a route of escape from issues the Lord will have us confront through the appropriate machinery put in place.  The Spirit of wisdom cannot come into effect until someone offers his voice to him. What is happening to the revelational knowledge we are receiving in handling situations like this in the Church? Alternatively, could it be that the Church is not prepared to tackle circumstances like this.

Righteousness exalts a nation the scriptures tell us but sin is a reproach… the enemy is trying to crack through the wall of righteousness being built for the prophetic purpose of God for the nation and intercessors must be positioned at her walls to frustrate this plan.  Our comments of wisdom and dialogue on community and national issues can be a powerful tool that facilitates agreement and change in the society and it’s amazing how the people of the world are trying to use this tool while we look.

There is a time to be quiet but there is also a time when our silence is termed to be evil. I must say the Church and her leadership must break the silence in this matter of xenophobia in South Africa. We have to employ the knowledge and wisdom of the Spirit to deal with this problem.   The position of the Church as the light and salt of the world must not be given the opportunity of being questioned even though that is already happening.  There is a lot the Church can do concerning the present condition of things. It is time to speak out against this evil polluting the atmosphere of the region.

Still living in the past

Racism and other forms of human and social injustice have various ways of expressing themselves in their past era if they are not adequately handled. Some of these post traumatic realities could play out in forms of domestic violence, crimes and abuses of drugs and substance, fears, excessive control, pride, anger and extreme passion for material acquisition etc.

Those are common symptoms pointing to past unaddressed social psychological matters within the nation.  This post apartheid backlash certainly reechoes two issues; the level of ideological work that needs to be carried out within the social paradigm of the nation, mostly amongst the still marginalized parts. Secondly the quality of leadership resources and capacity required to make the necessary impact. Many today might not have been born during the apartheid rule, yet the spirit of racism still lingers within the walls and streets of the nation.

The reorientation of both the spiritual and mental landscape of the nation is only effective through the ministry of the Church of God.  I would like to qualify what I mean by the Church, I am relating to those individuals and ministry whom the Lord has branded with prophetic sight and positioned at the gates of nations.  The ministry of elders at the gates is beyond just the ability to pray, it is ministry of the watchmen, those whom the Lord has sandaled with apostolic initiative both in changing and addressing the destiny of regions and nations from a higher realm of spiritual authority. These calibers of saints do not necessarily have to have a mega church structure attached to them or a title tagged to their names. They have no political agendas but when they speak, their voice affects and shifts the course and condition of a nation.

Prioritizing leadership

Presently, the available institutional structures designed to marshal the process of social cohesion and development in a society like South Africa seems to be nonexistence or just too weak. In a nation, that has suffered tyrannical rulership for century’s needs visible, strategic, effective and proactive institutional reform from the grassroots level.  The capacity to inform, transform and conform the nation’s social psyche from her past marginalized history to a more coherent, unified and progressive developing society should be the driving values system of the present administration.

This is what informs how job creation and other social infrastructures are developed in the communities. Racial and other forms of prejudicial perception in the provinces should be addressed continually until we have a positive inroad in the way we see ourselves as humans. One would have naturally thought that by now a national sponsored advertisement campaigned should be on air, addressing this evil threatening the peace of the continent. The media is a highly effective tool in building or destroying a nation, it all depends on who gets the upper advantage of using it.  We have not seen the best use of this tool in dealing with these xenophobic attacks. More needs to be done in this regard.

This is the time when all Christian leaders need to come out in lending their voice to develop this nation as regards to preaching and teaching the right values that build social integration at all levels. We must not live this work to the government. They need your help just as you need their help in creating the right platform to access the community. God’s prophetic agenda for this nation must come to pass and I do believe it has begun in various ways we might not fully recognize now. What can you do to stop all forms of violence and crime in the community? Do you have an idea of creating jobs and skills for communities? If you do, please call or send me a mail and we can take this to another level. Remember, we are here for such a time as this… The Lord is counting on you and me to bring a change to the present condition of the society.

Stewardship the foundation Of apostolic leadership

 

Stewardship the foundation

Of apostolic leadership

Matt 24:45-51

45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. NIV

Stewardship is defined as the ability to manage another person’s property, finance or household. Scriptures like this immediately call ones attention to re-evaluate how we’ve been   managing God’s resources and household. It is so easy for those who are not in what could be termed as frontline leaders to quickly exempt themselves from scripture like this.  But you should understand the scripture refers to your body as the house [temple} of God. This is to say that accurate stewardship starts with how you lead yourself. You can’t exempt leadership from self governance. The true is the type of leadership that will make great impact in the community starts from one’s ability to manage yourself. This includes your attitude, emotions dreams relationships.  Stewardship starts with internal government.

To the sooner you realize that leadership is given to change your own life first before imposing it’s principles on others, you will continue to abuse your position and authority to lead.  Accountability to the inner dealings of the Spirit helps a great deal to lead others in truth, fairness and love. How many times have we displayed the very same attitude of this wicked servant who totally forgot he was also chosen as steward over the household of his master. Abusing or misusing the power, authority or other resources in our care is a sign of weak leadership and inner dis-functionality.


This day calls for a new reappraiser of our commitment and faithfulness towards that which the Spirit has committed into our hands. Firstly, it should be clear that there is a household- realm of life we’ve been called to function as individual or as the corporate body of Christ. Understanding our hierarchies and marching order within the context of the present move of the Spirit is highly crucial to the success of our mission. Grace and anointing are given for various assignments that only get to function properly as we corporately realize our interconnections to each other’s spirituality. We’ve been put in charge of various important posts that demand the right spirit and {character} attitude in using them to achieve the desired plan of the Father. Misplaced priority has caused unnecessary pain within the Body of Christ and I do believe that as we start correcting the wrong view to leadership in regards to stewardship we shall advance the kingdom of God in the earth.

A wrong perception of leadership position becomes detrimental to the people we are called to lead or influence for God. When we fail to realize that what we presently have no matter how small or large belongs to God we give the enemy room to snick into our heart by sawing the seed of pride. Do we know that we’ve been called into the ministry of stewardship? Do we understand we are going to give account of the resources placed in our care? It is wisdom not to forget to regularly remind ourselves that we are the Lords steward and we’ve been given lives, time, money family, ministry and relationship and other thing to manage on behalf of God. First it’s important to reestablish the fact that whatever resource is in our possession belongs to the kingdom o God and how we use those resources both human and capital is highly important to God.

 

Pathway to Christian service

One of the qualities of leadership and Christian service is the ability to commit oneself to faithfulness even when it’s not convenient. Faithfulness and loyalty under immersed pressure attracts spiritual reward. The value of true leadership is not what is done under supervision but bringing to pass the task at hand even when you are not seen. Loyalty is faithfulness and commitment added together. Many have tried to be committed but under great pressure they back down. While others have passed the point of merely been committed in their duties because they understood the reward ahead, so they will do anything through their share ability not to seen uncommitted.  To the degree of your commitment to in the worlds system is to the degree you are rewarded even if your commitment is toward something diabolical.

 

Pressing beyond faithfulness

Num 12:6-8

When a prophet of the LORD is among you, I reveal myself to him in visions; I speak to him in dreams. 7 But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house.  8 With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?” NIV

Here we see again God making a clear distinction of the quality of his servants. There is no doubt of the high standard and quality demanded of anyone who is going to be God’s spokes man. The ministry of the prophet is one of the most complex offices of the five ascended ministries anyone can attain. Seasons upon seasons to be groomed as one, yet the Lord made it clear that even the prophetic ministry is limited to the kind of grace and calling upon the life of Moses. Moses was more than a prophet. The kind of relationship the Lord had with him surpassed all his predecessors.

He was a man of God’s presence. The Lord spoke with him face to face; it has never been seen in human history that the almighty spoke to a mortal face to face.  What a moment Moses had with the Father!  Moses was faithful in his entire house. He knew what he was called to do and the administrative resource and capacity within the people he was sent to lead was employed without insecurity.  Fear and insecurity in the call and grace upon our lives is what makes most time behave in an improper way to our brothers. The position of faithfulness pushes you from depending on your strength and ability to Gods inner guiding voice.

When you move pass commitment into the realm of being faithful the whole demand and process of your spiritual structure {life} changes. You can’t be faithful without doing the right thing with the right motive. At this point you are not merely rewarded for your duties but for the quality of heart you employ in the doing.  Faithfulness requires your faith in action, your trust in position, your obedience to the voice of the master continually, encouragement to those you are called to lead, resilient and determination to keep fighting even when it’s like you are about to fail the war. These are some of the characters of faithfulness which proceeds on to lay the foundation of the third dimension of true leadership quality called loyalty. This is the beginning of the journey to what we can call ascended spiritual stewardship {leadership}

The life’s quality of loyalty surpasses the beauty of both the ministry of commitment and faithfulness. It’s a quality of leadership that lives in the world of its own. Nothing can be compare to a heart fully loyal to the Father’s command. Loyalty surpasses what you do, it is who you are! This is the point where many iconic leaders in the bible made their mark. Unfortunately very few leaders in our time comprehend the value and glory behind loyalty. Loyalty does not reward what a person sees and approves, rather it the heart that followers the precise pattern and direction of the Spirit no matter how insignificant it may look to the ordinary eyes!

 

 

Platform for the next generation of leadership

Leaders make leadership-the position. Leadership is an act that can be imparted through highly disciplined training and great things can be achieved but even this does not qualify anyone to be a leader. When you study history and scripture you’ll understand what I am trying to convey. The best of the best brain in leadership have turned to become the worst dictators ever lived because the philosophy or template of their leadership was accurately positioned.  You might have understudied a greater great leaders even our lord Jesus Christ without capturing the very life and Spirit of his leadership. Nobody can teach you to be a leader; you can be well informed on the various disciplines and strategic of effective leadership. The ministry of a leader is completely different from that of leading; when you know what to say, how to say it, who to say it to, you can successfully practice leadership.

To be a leader you need to be imparted with the Spirit of truth which then guides you through the three main stages of leadership maturity. These stages are commitment, faithfulness and loyalty.  The third dimension is where the revelation of the life and nature of Christ starts gaining expressing through your lifestyle. This is not about what people see you do, it who you in your leadership call before Hi who sees all thing. Your entire being at this point reflects the both the beauty and authority of a born leader. You must be born-again to display this quality of leadership.  This is what Moses, Joseph, David, Daniel Jesus all reflected to their generation. The need is not what makes them leaders but who they are from within.   They don’t need the title or position to function as one they have been born again to leader!

 

 

The honor of leading God’s servants

To gain access into this realm of spiritual existence, you and I will have to go through the first and second level of our faith’s journey through the tabernacle. Commitment is the entrance door while faithfulness leads us into the holy place. Most leaders stop at the holy place of their journey while forgetting they have one more lap to go. The only place you can start gaining the true life of a steward is in the place of loyalty. You have lost all hidden interest to rape or take advantage of what is committed under your leadership. Your perception to the anointing and glory of ministry becomes redefined through the elevated sight of stewardship.

Those designed to carry the honor of leading the servants {leaders} of God in this end time ministry are those who have left the position of trying to be committed and faithful concerning the demand of the Spirit. Their entire live is completely sold out to seeing the will and desire of the kingdom become manifest in their world. They are not into ministry leadership to take advantage of God’s children; they are ready to spend and be spent on the altar of sacrifice. Their mission is gone beyond using spiritual gift to empress followers, they have come to the place of death to every self hidden glory.

The scripture above gives clear insight and direction toward the kind of quality of men and women the Lord is searching for in this season. The first point alighted through the voice of the master himself is that faithfulness goes alongside with wisdom. The glory of the apostolic which is wisdom is reinforced through ones commitment to faithfulness. Like I have earlier said, it’s not enough to just do {build} things, the heart condition places a major rule in the dimension of faithfulness. There is no doubt, the Church of the Lord is sustained and developed through the accurate leadership quality.

To carry out any major spiritual mission the first thing the Lord does is to find who is worthy of the mission. Leadership is the bedrock of kingdom advance. The Lord is very particular about the type of people that will represent his purpose on earth. We saw how meticulous the Lord was when he sent his prophet to anoint the next leader of Israel in the house of Jess. Though the best of his sons were paraded but none of them were chosen except the one not invited to the party. The Lord will not jeopardize his mission by assuming leadership. Leadership is a major issue in the heart of the Father and he takes careful time to prepare and groom his chosen man or woman.

For some to suggest the last day move of the Spirit don’t need human leadership structure because it is the season of the Holy Spirit is not only heretic but a complete misrepresentation of the entire principle of the Church ministry. Right from the beginning of the creation of man we’ve seen the Lord used mortal men in leading his purposes and desire to the next frontier. Even after the fall the Lord did not to calling and training men for his use. To desire to be use of God but not willing to submit under set leadership is unscriptural and not be stop. God’s Spirit uses ordinary people who have submitted themselves to the apostolic leadership of put in place. However we’ve also seen the complete abuse of leadership authority and power in the church for the past two decades, and I do believe this account to one of the reasons why many today have become skeptic of so called men of God.

The issue of balancing of leadership in the body of Christ needs to be accurately taught so that people are not unduly taken advantage of all in the many of being spiritual. Christians need to realize that leaders in the Church no matter how anointed they seem are still fallible. The Priest according to Hebrews chapter 5 is to be taken from his nativity. No priest is allowed to be imported; he must be a known people from the community he grow up. This is strategic for several reasons; one he can’t boast that it’s his superiority of character that got him the position, it’s all God’s grace.  Neither can they people deny the power of lifestyle manifesting through his priesthood as he represents the community before the Lord. This principle is designed to entice the people out of their false lifestyle into the right pattern of living.

 

 

 

 

The mission of TGIC in Franschhoek

Isaiah 43:18-19

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.ASV

The good news translation:

Isa 43:18 But the LORD says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago.

19 Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.

We welcome you to franschhoekimpact’. This site is multidimensional in its vision and expression in that it seeks to deal with the various spectrum of human existences within the context of sound spirituality. We clearly understand that life exist beyond the four walls of the local Church building and we also know that God is breaking every limitation caused by religion and obsolete church tradition all across the globe. The practicality of living life goes beyond professional skill. life is spiritual and to be able to perfectly interface your daily life with the divine order of God you need to be spiritually aware.

The blog site has been set aside to inform and accurately develop both the spiritual and socioeconomic realities of the community of Franschhoek and beyond. This we hope to achieve by creating the right spiritual and mental platform for a broad-based interchange of seminars, workshops and conferences with regards to kingdom based leadership initiatives within the various sectors of the community. This platform is also set aside to help us better express the life, nature and philosophy of Him {CHRIST} who sent us in the best and most clarified approach.

There was a time in history where Christianity was associated with sound educational background, technological breakthroughs, information, accurate governance and social freedom at all levels. Today, when people talk about the Christian faith, it is mostly associated with failure, illiteracy, poverty, crime, pride and disrespect for the elders. People’s mentality has been deformed by the infiltration of wrong values systems and culture being promoted today at all levels of society, all in the name of social freedom.

It’s highly important to acknowledge and realize that true freedom and liberty comes with a price. Recapturing the mind of Christ in relating to life and existence in general is a very important issue in our day, and we do believe without a shadow of doubt that this media platform will help bring accurate focus and re-alignment to the structure of human thinking. Each of us reflects who we are and what we perpetually think of. You can’t be better than the quality of your thought life.

We believe this platform will set the foundation and pillars to correct the spiritual blindness and socioeconomic imbalances of our community. The life and the power of the kingdom of God amongst believers is given to release not just individuals but also communities and cities from the powers that have kept men bound from finding and fulfilling their ordained destiny.

Here is the verdict of the message of we bring

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor: He hath sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

There are quite a few impressive projects and initiatives that already have a powerful success story within the community, and we want to say a big thank you to those people who decided not to be part of the problem but a bridge to the solution. We pray the Lord will continue to give these wonderful gems the grace and initiative capacity to create continual resource centers to build the lives of those desperately in need of help in the community.

This blog site is the vision of The Gatekeeper’s International Centre Franschhoek. TGIC is a resource centre for human restoration and development within the global community. The gatekeeper’s intl centre is connected to other organ of Christ Body out there pursuing the same core vision and mandate of seeing Christ crowned Lord of the nations through the imprint of His life, nature and authority. We do believe that the revelation of Christ is the key to unlocking the power of the kingdom of God and the complete destruction of the power of this present darkness keeping communities and cities bound.

The scripture says in John 1: 4, in him was life; and the life was the light of men. ASV
For men to come out of their darkness they will have to acknowledge the power of Christ’s light in their lives or else they will continue in that darkness. The true definition of darkness means the absence of the illuminating power of God’s knowledge {revelation} in the heart of man.

It is our strong belief that man cannot maximize the available God-given resources and potential until there is a complete restoration of His lost image, dignity and glory. It is the vision of our mandate to bring accurate understanding of what life is all about. This primary knowledge of truth brings alignment to every other area of man’s confusion and frustration.

Just as individuals carry a precise destined purpose to be fulfilled so do communities and nations. The mission and assignment of a community is directly related to the passion and desires of the founding fathers. This legacy needs to be revamped in the heart of subsequent generations to keep it alive. To know more about TGIC please click on the resource file above.

Our vision:

The vision and burden of this blog site is to contribute directly or indirectly to the potentials and creative capacity of individual {youths and young professionals} pursuance of socioeconomic empowerment, development and transformation. The community of Franschhoek, especially in this present season of socioeconomic decline needs a clear voice of hope, direction and strategy planning for precise navigation to the next level of creative {thinking} wealth.

The power of applied knowledge:

Knowledge and Information is highly necessary for the actualization of personal and corporate deliverance and development in the 21st century community. And we do believe that what people need now is an inflow of directive revelation and accurate information that will help them on how to turn their ideas and initiatives into productive {ingenuity} realities.

This is one of the reasons why we have set this site aside as a platform for resource to the youth and other members of community who wish to take advantage of this season. We take this opportunity to encourage our youth to keep their head above the waters of confusion, depression and frustration and start doing something creative with their lives.Success is never a destination but a progressive development of one’s life call and purpose towards the preferred place in Christ. Finding who you are and what you’re here for is one of the most important discoveries you can make.

A little advice

It is highly important to let you know that you will not get the answer to your innermost challenges and questions in the wine bottle; neither are you going to get it by being abusive and violent to yourself or others around you. More than ever before, the enemy is fighting for the souls of {communities} Franschhoek and we are not ready to give up fighting, because the Lord has promised us victory in every area if we keep our eyes and faith on him. Creation has its root in God, and for there to be a fulfillment and prosperity in every area of human life there must first be a return to the source and creator of your life.

The Spirit of the Lord is speaking and giving direction concerning the present state of our lives and we have to pay attention to His prophetic direction, in order to navigate this season with capacity and opportunity to advance in life. Little or nothing will be achieved from a position of human strength in these last days without inviting the knowledge {revelation} and wisdom of God to direct and help us achieve. We believe that the accurate knowledge of God in an area is directly related to the measure of the community’s openness to the Father’s will, desire and purpose.

We can’t continue in our old paradigm of activity and expect to get a positive result. It’s time to hear afresh what the Lord is saying concerning your life, family, career and business. There is no area of your life that God is silent. When you learn to be stop dictating how your life should be run, you’ll then learn to start hearing the directives and desires of your Creator for your life.

The scripture says concerning Christ that he went everywhere doing good… the goodness of the Lord is a direct knowledge of his revelation given access into a home or geographical area. There were places Jesus went and he was not allowed to minister due to their unbelief. The Lord wants to saturate this community with power and authority and we have to open the gates and doors of our community for him.

Redefining community:

Everything in creation including people, cities and societies are all connected to Gods eternal plan and purpose for human redemption. The concept of emancipation and regeneration is extended to communities and nation willing to stretch their hands to the God of salvation. True salvation sees beyond race, culture, language and boundaries set by men.

It seeks to redefine and correct the wrong internal template and belief system that has confined minds, cultural and traditional perceptions of human civilization. In other words, true salvation doesn’t just give us a one-way ticket to heaven; it also sets us free from the limited deformed belief systems of our cultural view and traditional ethnic racial differences that stop us from seeing the overall destiny of people living within a society.

Today’s meaning of the word community has drastically changed in use and meaning from what it used to be in the past. Since the advent of the internet and the concept of globalization, our world has continually become more and more complex in definition and value. And if we’re going to anchor this change as it has to relate to our own community, we need to change our perceptions of handling and accepting change.

We need to learn how to maximize the potential and benefit of the 21st century globalized community. As much as we want this blog site to meet the needs of the people living in this community, the fact still remains that those who will be reading and using this blog will reach beyond the geographical boundaries of Franschhoek.

Keeping up with a changing world

Our world has changed and it will continue to change whether we’re prepared or not. The potential and capacity of the youth of the community must be channeled towards taking advantage of this borderless world. One of the core missions of the mandate of Christ centered Christianity is to see freedom, empowerment, development and transformation of communities that opens up to way, doctrine and teachings.

The scripture says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Do we truly desire to see the operation and manifestation of wisdom in our family, business and careers? We then need to open our hearts to the outpouring of Gods illuminating light coming to this community. We believe that faith in God is not complete until people start witnessing reformation and restoration in every area of life.

It is our passionate desire through this blog to create hope and assurance for those who have almost given up on life and themselves to see the well of opportunity waiting for them, if only they can just learn to dream and never give up on developing their potential. Everyone who has the capacity to dream also has the innate ability for success.

All we need at this point is to look inward to see what the Lord is busy crafting in each life. You and your family are success stories in the making so don’t give up your in faith. The Lord is sending his technocrats to redesign and rebuild your faith and capacity to break through every barrier and limitation you might presently be faced with. Franschhoek has the potential to become the hub of both spiritual and socioeconomic resource centers in the entire southern hemisphere.

Removing veils

The success story of any community is not complete until there is a total removal of both spiritual and psychological boundaries that separates the very poor from those who are more fortunate. We live in one of the most beautiful times in history that is pregnant with great opportunities for breakthroughs at all levels, yet these opportunities require well balanced sight to discern and respond to various issues of the cause of both mental and spiritual poverty.

The present global recession is having a major negative impact on people’s behavior and attitude to become more self-centred. The world is full of chaotic issues that desperately need the wisdom of God in dealing with them before they completely get out of hand. This season is governed by an unprecedented inflow of uncensored information ever threatening the lives of individuals, the community and global peace. Thanks to the world of the worldwide web! Information is highly essential for building communication, relationships and productivity. Yet millions today are basically abusing the use of this great {the internet} technology for their own selfish end.

We are in an undeniable season of continual change and this change will continue to impact and require adjustments in our daily existence and relationships both to individuals and communities at large. Our youth and community leaders, more than ever before need to be highly informed and developed in areas of responsibility and accountability of their choices and decisions. Capacity to meet the required standard of the new season requires that the moral values of Christian faith becomes the base of one’s life, lest you get carried away and deceived by the many voices begging for your attention. Precise knowledge to navigate life comes via divine awareness of the required demand for such season.

The challenge of the new season

New seasons are birthed through those who are able to transform trials, recessions and challenges into great opportunities for developing themselves and their communities. The ability to be creative and use the initiative given by God to each individual brings out the leadership capacity of people and we strongly believe that this is the time to stir the hearts of men and women again to look into their lives in order to bring forth the divine resource already provided for their productivity.

It is our strong belief that there can hardly be a major landmark of change or positive impact within any society, without first defining the common purpose, goal and objective of such community as it relates to constructive and comprehensive development of the people. Most times this is achieved by first identifying the visible value system reigning within such community.

The advancement and progression of any person, community or nation is built on the corporate vision and objective of its leaders’ capacity, solidly built on a foundation that can accurately carry and sustain the future of its children and youth. Understanding and continual articulation of such core vision and values within the system that runs the community from local to executive level gives precise direction for a better and a productive future.

Re-echoing history of the community

The history of this community still carries and echoes the very life and essence of what lasting freedom is and should reflect and represent within the hearts of millions both within and outside this beautiful valley. When the early settlers of this breathtaking valley first journeyed down here, they each carried within their heartbeat a vision and hope of seeing a future development of a community, becoming a home of freedom, rest and safety, not just for their families but also for anyone who sincerely desired and longed to find peace, tranquility, hope, restoration and social freedom from the land that enslaved them from expressing their faith, and worship the way they truly desired.

These Christian migrants found a place here that gave them the opportunity to see their dreams and visions come true, the freedom from their protagonists and oppressors gave them an opportunity here to rebuild and reinvent themselves to become a story of success. Yet all this great and wonderful history lies on the very core footing and foundation of the sound Christian moral standards and values they brought along with them.

Any form of faith, religion, institution or culture that seeks to enslave its people will definitely sooner or later face strong resistance. The peace and serenity of Franschhoek without doubt offers an immense opportunity to all members of the community to makes their desired vision and dream become reality. Today, Franschhoek is no doubt one of the best wine-producing communities and tourist destinations in the southern hemisphere. Yet there is still untapped great potential in this community that needs to be harnessed with the right spirit of understanding. The past and present success story of this community is directly connected to the values of self actualization, hard work, family unity, integrity, education, care and hospitality.

Today the Lord is doing something new as he reaches down to these biblical values that were laid with the foundation of this community. The destiny of this community is designed to help people identify and fulfill their ultimate purpose in life, and it is the core vision of this blog to provide resources for all our readers to fulfill just that. This blog is solidly founded on sound biblical doctrine and values in achieving its aims and objectives.

Our objective includes the following

• Community integration and development

• Leadership resource for social reform
• Restoration of sound family and marriage values
• Availability of resource for youth development
• Sound biblical spiritual development resource
• Counseling opportunity for addicts

Little back ground history of Franschhoek

It is said that the only thing man ever learn from history is that he never learned anything. The opportunity to correct the present religious, cultural and traditional errors has come, as we accurately look backs to the celebration of triumph of those men and women who stood to challenge and fight against the reign of tyrannical order of government in France.

“The Bastille was a fortress in Paris, built-in the Middle Ages. It had eight towers and was surrounded by a water-filled moat. In the 17th century it was converted into a prison. For many in France, it became a symbol of how kings oppressed the people. On July 14, 1789, a mob advanced on the Bastille, intending to seize gunpowder that was stored within. After a fierce fight, the revolutionaries captured the prison. They found only seven prisoners. But the power of the people had been made known, encouraging the fighters for liberty and equality. Bastille Day was first celebrated on July 14 the very next year, while the French Revolution was still in progress. Bastille Day did not become a French national holiday until 1880, long after the Bastille itself had been demolished by a revolutionary government”.

Awakening the spirit of Bastille

Hundreds, if not thousands every year gathered in Franschhoek for the celebration of Bastille {French revolution} festival. Yet how many people understand or respect the life, values and principles taught through the lives and action of these brave men and women who stood up against religious and institutional oppression in France? Millions gather every year to drink and party without a clue of what the festival is all about.

Thousands of these courageous Christians fought and completely demolished the Bastille prison stronghold. Over four hundred thousand of them later fled their homes and lands to find refuge in the other places where freedom and liberty is the right of all its citizens.

These faith driven saints fought with the revealed knowledge of biblical truth and values, in spirit of humility and freedom, they resisted the wickedness that ruled the hearts of their leaders. Today Bastille still lives in the hearts of those who share in the life and values brought to this great community of Franschhoek. As the spirit of the Lord begins to stir and connect our hearts together to fight against oppression of all types, we need to be fully armed with the power of the revelation of Christ who called us to go into all nations and make disciples of them.

Migration of hope

These great migrants brought both the seed of life {the word of God} and the seed of agricultural prosperity and wealth to the shores of Southern Africa but in particular the community of Franschhoek. This handwriting of agricultural breakthrough and prosperity can be seen all across the land of franschhoek as a community that prides herself as one of the best wine-producing communities in the world. This singular breakthrough opened up the entire nation of South Africa and in particular the community of Franschhoek as a tourist destination. Yet this great wealth and prosperity being witnessed today, either as a prosperous winery community or as a community that prides herself as one of the best French architectural building sites is still void of the manifestation of the second seed known as the word of God.

The seed of prosperity

Real estate business has to come to stay in this community and there is still room for infrastructural development and expansion that will ultimately benefit all residents and visitor of the valley. Thanks to those who journeyed down here with the vision and passion to bring out their best out of their worst pain and limitations. The prophetic purpose of God for Franschhoek must be accomplished by those who have gained sight into this sin of commission and omission. The Lord is sending His apostles and prophets to remind the community of Franschhoek about her ordained destiny, which is to be a citadel of refuge and restoration to the weak, hopeless and broken-hearted. This community is called to be a place of healing and joy to those who need transformation.

The purpose of the wine seed

The wealth and prosperity of this community should be accurately channeled to help hundreds of abuse teenagers and struggling men and women. We hear about one or two groups in the community trying to do their best in ensuring equilibrium of prosperity. Yet we do believe that more people need to get involved in this recovery process. When the blessing and wealth given by the Lord are not properly managed, they tend to become the very doom of the society.

This can be seen all across the world. Most of the wealthiest communities across the globe have all witnessed the most devastating civil wars. A new order of men and women must emerge with the right values and capacity to manage wealth both from community level to national and global levels. Prosperity is for development and not for a few rich ones. The beauty of wealth creation and prosperity is to create avenues to channel its revenues to the required areas in the lives of those in need of it. Beyond the good life we want from money, what else do we need money for? We have to invest in the lives of people around us. This is true and lasting investment.

The echo from the past

Beyond spiritual rhetoric, we need to wake up to the present challenge of kingdom advance within the poverty level of those living here in Franschhoek. We need to once again ask and scrutinize the values and standards of what we define to be Christianity today; lest we find ourselves in the same place these men and women found themselves until they revolted against who then was called instituted {state} religion.

The true meaning of the celebration

Remembering and celebrating the lives of these people who risked their lives through high seas, broke the dividing lines of cultural limitation and philosophical ideologies of race. If we neglect the other seed these men and women brought to plant in the soil of the human soul, history will not forgive us.

These men and women of great vision and nobility clearly understood what the scripture meant when it says, what shall it profit a man if he gains the entire world but loses his soul? Churches built by these men today have become a monument sight-seeing centre. We need to remind ourselves as a community founded on the values of true spiritual realities, if we are accurately representing the values and culture of peace, prosperity and shared life these great people brought to our shores?

Getting to know more TGIC Franschhoek

Our core vision as the gatekeeper’s international centre is to create through a world-class systematic engagement of wealth creation values system and principles, in building sustainable productive relationships and partnerships that gives us the leverage in offering the best quality service required for capacity and skills for human development.

This strategy, we believe in the long run will benefit the impoverished minorities of the community by giving them the right opportunity to dream and sustain such dream with informed productive activity until the day of its manifestation. The motivation to participate in self-development and actualization of a dreams becomes a major challenge in a world where people continually live out the vicious cycle of their past experience and disappointment on a daily basis.

Beyond religious structure

Therefore, one of our key objectives is the continual development and deployment of our trained team to visit and engage the community with our spiritual and psychological training program. This program helps in fighting the wrong templates and values that cripples and limits the creative capacity of the people from advancing. This will eventually equip each member of the community to become stakeholders and role models in the progressive transformation of their families and the general community.

The concept is to offer to each individual the necessary resource, skilled capacity and continual leadership mentoring ability that is focused on transferable capacity for the next generation. This we refer to as the community transformers and transistors of pure lasting values and skills. TGIC FRANSCHHOEK is set to restructure and redefine what the Church of Christ in the earth represents both to the kingdom of darkness and the general society in our time. This is Church without walls! The powers of racial, cultural and mental barriers are completely broken amongst our tribes. We are a community of a new race of people bound by one civilization called the kingdom of God. Our culture is Christ and our power is his revelation. We believe more than ever before that the world is desperately in need of a true and lasting visionary leadership community of people who transcends all secular humanistic ideologies and bureaucratic concepts of governance.

Preparing for the next move

The Spirit of the Lord is stirring and restoring the heart of Davidic governmental order back to the earth and we are going to be forcefully seeing the powerful move of the hands of God amongst the people like never before. Our duty is to announce and ‘midwife’ the inflow of the Spirit of the Lord into the community of Franschhoek just like in the days of Simon and Anna in the temple in Jerusalem. {Luke chapter 2}

Communities across the globe today are facing one of the darkest moments in human history that requires a desperate and precise step of action if we must prevent global crisis in respect to the lack of weak leadership. Survival instinct is becoming more of people’s second nature of reaction to all the issues at hand. Teenage pregnancy, school drop-outs are on the rise, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, divorce and murder are all on the increase and have become norms in our community today. Our accepted democratic system of government is continually failing the people due to the corrupt human nature.

The fear of God and human respect has become a thing of the past both in homes, schools and the business community. Our local and executive leadership institutions need a total reform of nature and vision if we are going to see respect for public leadership positions again. The values and template of accurate biblical ethical standards and truth needs to be restored, starting from the home fronts in order to affect the template of change within the larger community. The Body of Christ is required to awake from her sleep and allow the Spirit of Christ to work in and through her again for the development and reformation of broken structures. The revelation of Christ in the hearts of men is the accurate answer to social reformation and community transformation if we open the gate of our community to the Lordship of Christ’s kingdom.

Here is a scripture to consider for your meditation

Good news translation

• John 1:1 In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

• John 1:2 From the very beginning the Word was with God.
• John 1:3 Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him.

The mission of TGIC in Franschhoek

Isaiah 43:18-19

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.ASV

The good news translation:

Isa 43:18  But the LORD says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago.

19  Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.

We welcome you to franschhoekimpact’. This site is multidimensional in its vision and expression in that it seeks to deal with the various spectrum of human existences within the context of sound spirituality.  We clearly understand that life exist beyond the four walls of  the local Church building and we also know that God is breaking every limitation caused by religion and obsolete church tradition all across the globe. The practicality of living life goes beyond professional skill. life is spiritual and to be able to perfectly interface your daily life with the divine order of God you need to be spiritually aware.

The blog site has been set aside to inform and accurately develop both the spiritual and socioeconomic realities of the community of Franschhoek and beyond. This we hope to achieve by creating the right spiritual and mental platform for a broad-based interchange of seminars, workshops and conferences with regards to kingdom based leadership initiatives within the various sectors of the community. This platform is also set aside to help us better express the life, nature and philosophy of Him {CHRIST} who sent us in the best and most clarified approach.

There was a time in history where Christianity was associated with sound educational background, technological breakthroughs, information, accurate governance and social freedom at all levels. Today, when people talk about the Christian faith, it is mostly associated with failure, illiteracy, poverty, crime, pride and disrespect for the elders. People’s mentality has been deformed by the infiltration of wrong values systems and culture being promoted today at all levels of society, all in the name of social freedom.

It’s highly important to acknowledge and realize that true freedom and liberty comes with a price. Recapturing the mind of Christ in relating to life and existence in general is a very important issue in our day, and we do believe without a shadow of doubt that this media platform will help bring accurate focus and re-alignment to the structure of human thinking. Each of us reflects who we are and what we perpetually think of. You can’t be better than the quality of your thought life.

We believe this platform will set the foundation and pillars to correct the spiritual blindness and socioeconomic imbalances of our community. The life and the power of the kingdom of God amongst believers is given to release not just individuals but also communities and cities from the powers that have kept men bound from finding and fulfilling their ordained destiny.

Here is the verdict of the message of  we bring

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor: He hath sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

There are quite a few impressive projects and initiatives that already have a powerful success story within the community, and we want to say a big thank you to those people who decided not to be part of the problem but a bridge to the solution. We pray the Lord will continue to give these wonderful gems the grace and initiative capacity to create continual resource centers to build the lives of those desperately in need of help in the community.

This blog site is the vision of The Gatekeeper’s International Centre Franschhoek. TGIC is a resource centre for human restoration and development within the global community. The gatekeeper’s intl centre is connected to other organ of Christ Body out there pursuing the same core vision and mandate of seeing Christ crowned Lord of the nations through the imprint of His life, nature and authority. We do believe that the revelation of Christ is the key to unlocking the power of the kingdom of God and the complete destruction of the power of this present darkness keeping communities and cities bound.

The scripture says in John 1: 4, in him was life; and the life was the light of men. ASV
For men to come out of their darkness they will have to acknowledge the power of Christ’s light in their lives or else they will continue in that darkness. The true definition of darkness means the absence of the illuminating power of God’s knowledge {revelation} in the heart of man.

It is our strong belief that man cannot maximize the available God-given resources and potential until there is a complete restoration of His lost image, dignity and glory. It is the vision of our mandate to bring accurate understanding of what life is all about. This primary knowledge of truth brings alignment to every other area of man’s confusion and frustration.

Just as individuals carry a precise destined purpose to be fulfilled so do communities and nations. The mission and assignment of a community is directly related to the passion and desires of the founding fathers. This legacy needs to be revamped in the heart of subsequent generations to keep it alive. To know more about TGIC please click on the resource file above.

Our vision:

The vision and burden of this blog site is to contribute directly or indirectly to the potentials and creative capacity of individual {youths and young professionals} pursuance of socioeconomic empowerment, development and transformation. The community of Franschhoek, especially in this present season of socioeconomic decline needs a clear voice of hope, direction and strategy planning for precise navigation to the next level of creative {thinking} wealth.

The power of applied knowledge:

Knowledge and Information is highly necessary for the actualization of personal and corporate deliverance and development in the 21st century community. And we do believe that what people need now is an inflow of directive revelation and accurate information that will help them on how to turn their ideas and initiatives into productive {ingenuity} realities.

This is one of the reasons why we have set this site aside as a platform for resource to the youth and other members of community who wish to take advantage of this season. We take this opportunity to encourage our youth to keep their head above the waters of confusion, depression and frustration and start doing something creative with their lives.Success is never a destination but a progressive development of one’s life call and purpose towards the preferred place in Christ. Finding who you are and what you’re here for is one of the most important discoveries you can make.

A little advice

It is highly important to let you know that you will not get the answer to your innermost challenges and questions in the wine bottle; neither are you going to get it by being abusive and violent to yourself or others around you. More than ever before, the enemy is fighting for the souls of {communities} Franschhoek and we are not ready to give up fighting, because the Lord has promised us victory in every area if we keep our eyes and faith on him. Creation has its root in God, and for there to be a fulfillment and prosperity in every area of human life there must first be a return to the source and creator of your life.

The Spirit of the Lord is speaking and giving direction concerning the present state of our lives and we have to pay attention to His prophetic direction, in order to navigate this season with capacity and opportunity to advance in life. Little or nothing will be achieved from a position of human strength in these last days without inviting the knowledge {revelation} and wisdom of God to direct and help us achieve. We believe that the accurate knowledge of God in an area is directly related to the measure of the community’s openness to the Father’s will, desire and purpose.

We can’t continue in our old paradigm of activity and expect to get a positive result. It’s time to hear afresh what the Lord is saying concerning your life, family, career and business. There is no area of your life that God is silent. When you learn to be stop dictating how your life should be run, you’ll then learn to start hearing the directives and desires of your Creator for your life.

The scripture says concerning Christ that he went everywhere doing good… the goodness of the Lord is a direct knowledge of his revelation given access into a home or geographical area. There were places Jesus went and he was not allowed to minister due to their unbelief. The Lord wants to saturate this community with power and authority and we have to open the gates and doors of our community for him.

Redefining community:

Everything in creation including people, cities and societies are all connected to Gods eternal plan and purpose for human redemption. The concept of emancipation and regeneration is extended to communities and nation willing to stretch their hands to the God of salvation. True salvation sees beyond race, culture, language and boundaries set by men.

It seeks to redefine and correct the wrong internal template and belief system that has confined minds, cultural and traditional perceptions of human civilization.  In other words, true salvation doesn’t just give us a one-way ticket to heaven; it also sets us free from the limited deformed belief systems of our cultural view and traditional ethnic racial differences that stop us from seeing the overall destiny of people living within a society.

Today’s meaning of the word community has drastically changed in use and meaning from what it used to be in the past. Since the advent of the internet and the concept of globalization, our world has continually become more and more complex in definition and value. And if we’re going to anchor this change as it has to relate to our own community, we need to change our perceptions of handling and accepting change.

We need to learn how to maximize the potential and benefit of the 21st century globalized community.

As the spirit of the Lord begins to stir and connect our hearts together to fight against oppression of all types, we need to be fully armed with the power of the revelation of Christ who called us to go into all nations and make disciples of them.

Migration of hope

These great migrants brought both the seed of life {the word of God} and the seed of agricultural prosperity and wealth to the shores of Southern Africa but in particular the community of Franschhoek. This handwriting of agricultural breakthrough and prosperity can be seen all across the land of franschhoek as a community that prides herself as one of the best wine-producing communities in the world. This singular breakthrough opened up the entire nation of South Africa and in particular the community of Franschhoek as a tourist destination. Yet this great wealth and prosperity being witnessed today, either as a prosperous winery community or as a community that prides herself as one of the best French architectural building sites is still void of the manifestation of the second seed known as the word of God.

The seed of prosperity

Real estate business has to come to stay in this community and there is still room for infrastructural development and expansion that will ultimately benefit all residents and visitor of the valley. Thanks to those who journeyed down here with the vision and passion to bring out their best out of their worst pain and limitations. The prophetic purpose of God for Franschhoek must be accomplished by those who have gained sight into this sin of commission and omission. The Lord is sending His apostles and prophets to remind the community of Franschhoek about her ordained destiny, which is to be a citadel of refuge and restoration to the weak, hopeless and broken-hearted. This community is called to be a place of healing and joy to those who need transformation.

The purpose of the wine seed

The wealth and prosperity of this community should be accurately channeled to help hundreds of abuse teenagers and struggling men and women.  We hear about one or two groups in the community trying to do their best in ensuring equilibrium of prosperity. Yet we do believe that more people need to get involved in this recovery process. When the blessing and wealth given by the Lord are not properly managed, they tend to become the very doom of the society.

This can be seen all across the world.  Most of the wealthiest communities across the globe have all witnessed the most devastating civil wars. A new order of men and women must emerge with the right values and capacity to manage wealth both from community level to national and global levels. Prosperity is for development and not for a few rich ones. The beauty of wealth creation and prosperity is to create avenues to channel its revenues to the required areas in the lives of those in need of it. Beyond the good life we want from money, what else do we need money for? We have to invest in the lives of people around us. This is true and lasting investment.

The echo from the past

Beyond spiritual rhetoric, we need to wake up to the present challenge of kingdom advance within the poverty level of those living here in Franschhoek. We need to once again ask and scrutinize the values and standards of what we define to be Christianity today; lest we find ourselves in the same place these men and women found themselves until they revolted against who then was called instituted {state} religion.

The true meaning of the celebration

Remembering and celebrating the lives of these people who risked their lives through high seas, broke the dividing lines of cultural limitation and philosophical ideologies of race.  If we neglect the other seed these men and women brought to plant in the soil of the human soul, history will not forgive us.

These men and women of great vision and nobility clearly understood what the scripture meant when it says, what shall it profit a man if he gains the entire world but loses his soul? Churches built by these men today have become a monument sight-seeing centre. We need to remind ourselves as a community founded on the values of true spiritual realities, if we are accurately representing the values and culture of peace, prosperity and shared life these great people brought to our shores?

Getting to know more  TGIC Franschhoek

Our core vision as the gatekeeper’s international centre is to create through a world-class systematic engagement of wealth creation values system and principles, in building sustainable productive relationships and partnerships that gives us the leverage in offering the best quality service required for capacity and skills for human development.

This strategy, we believe in the long run will benefit the impoverished minorities of the community by giving them the right opportunity to dream and sustain such dream with informed productive activity until the day of its manifestation. The motivation to participate in self-development and actualization of a dreams becomes a major challenge in a world where people continually live out the vicious cycle of their past experience and disappointment on a daily basis.

Beyond religious structure

Therefore, one of our key objectives is the continual development and deployment of our trained team to visit and engage the community with our spiritual and psychological training program. This program helps in fighting the wrong templates and values that cripples and limits the creative capacity of the people from advancing. This will eventually equip each member of the community to become stakeholders and role models in the progressive transformation of their families and the general community.

The concept is to offer to each individual the necessary resource, skilled capacity and continual leadership mentoring ability that is focused on transferable capacity for the next generation. This we refer to as the community transformers and transistors of pure lasting values and skills. TGIC FRANSCHHOEK is set to restructure and redefine what the Church of Christ in the earth represents both to the kingdom of darkness and the general society in our time. This is Church without walls! The powers of racial, cultural and mental barriers are completely broken amongst our tribes. We are a community of a new race of people bound by one civilization called the kingdom of God. Our culture is Christ and our power is his revelation. We believe more than ever before that the world is desperately in need of a true and lasting visionary leadership community of people who transcends all secular humanistic ideologies and bureaucratic concepts of governance.

Preparing for the next move

The Spirit of the Lord is stirring and restoring the heart of Davidic governmental order back to the earth and we are going to be forcefully seeing the powerful move of the hands of God amongst the people like never before.  Our duty is to announce and ‘midwife’ the inflow of the Spirit of the Lord into the community of Franschhoek just like in the days of Simon and Anna in the temple in Jerusalem. {Luke chapter 2}

Communities across the globe today are facing one of the darkest moments in human history that requires a desperate and precise step of action if we must prevent global crisis in respect to the lack of weak leadership. Survival instinct is becoming more of people’s second nature of reaction to all the issues at hand. Teenage pregnancy, school drop-outs are on the rise, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, divorce and murder are all on the increase and have become norms in our community today. Our accepted democratic system of government is continually failing the people due to the corrupt human nature.

The fear of God and human respect has become a thing of the past both in homes, schools and the business community. Our local and executive leadership institutions need a total reform of nature and vision if we are going to see respect for public leadership positions again. The values and template of accurate biblical ethical standards and truth needs to be restored, starting from the home fronts in order to affect the template of change within the larger community. The Body of Christ is required to awake from her sleep and allow the Spirit of Christ to work in and through her again for the development and reformation of broken structures. The revelation of Christ in the hearts of men is the accurate answer to social reformation and community transformation if we open the gate of our community to the Lordship of Christ’s kingdom.

A Cry for Help

Psalm 12:1-2

HELP, LORD! For principled and godly people are here no more; faithfulness and the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.

2 To his neighbor each one speaks words without use or worth or truth; with flattering lips and double heart [deceitfully] they speak. AMP

This psalm of David captures the present spiritual climate and atmosphere of the church all across the globe. The love for lie and deception is growing in the heart of people who were once lover of the gospel of the truth. The concept of righteousness and justice as the core foundation of what Christianity stands for is getting weaker on a daily basis. The values of Commitment, faithfulness and loyalty as the principle and culture of the Christian faith are literally being exchanged and rejected for falsehood. David in his days faced the same challenge to the point where it almost becomes impossible for him to find a person who has the same kind of value and passion for the things of the Spirit. Mind you, one of the things that qualified David as a man of God was his commitment and love for the truth.

The scripture testify how the Lord found David as if he was busy searching for one whose entire life’s desire is towards heartbeat. The scripture says he found David a man after his heart. What is the heart of God made of? the word declares righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. where is the throne of God? the throne of God is within his heart just like his kingdom his within him.  everything known and seen as reality of the kingdom of God came from the unseen dimension of his heart. The heart of the Father is made of all the components and compartments of the truth.

The heart of God is the very life source of the truth! The Spirit of God is the Spirit of the truth.  This is the cry of David when he began to discern that people are no longer seeking the pathway of justice and equity even though they might be preaching it but the practice of it has become alien to them. He stood amazed how his own brethren could allow deception to rule their heart. He search for one who stand for righteousness but could hardly find so be began crying {moaning} for the spiritual condition of his nation. In season where truth has fallen to the ground and nobody seem to care what most we do? Let us see how Isaiah saw this same issue in his days where deception and flattering lips are the only options men desire to thrive in.

Isa 59:12-15 2 For our offenses are many in your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities:  13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, fomenting oppression and revolt, uttering lies our hearts have conceived.  14 So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.  15 Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. NIV

This season requires all believers and intercessors of truth to start crying for the help of God so the godly don’t get swallowed up in this river of falsehood.  A mindset of don’t tell the truth so you won’t be disliked or be rejected of provision by so called fellow brethren is gaining ground in the body of Christ. Many are losing their relationship with God because they’ve set their eyes on mortal men instead on God. When you make man your source you can’t but compromise your stand of the faith.

Those who stand for the truth without compromise are the tagged for rejection and persecuted, yet we know the scripture declared, you shall know the truth and the truth you know will set you free. Could it be that most Christian have allowed the spirit of bondage back into their lives, ministry and families because they are unwilling to maintain their pathway of the truth? This is a question for someone out there to answer. don’t allow the lies and deception of the enemy take control of your life. In the beatitudes, Christ declared blessed are they who morns for they shall be comforted. Do you want lasting spiritual comfort? Then start asking the Lord to grant you the eyes to see and the heart to be burdened in intercession concerning the condition of his loved Church.

Principle of accurate Regeneration

Salvation based on apostolic truth will bring the rebellious soul of man into divine obedience

Principle of accurate {salvation} regeneration

Jeremiah 9:23-24

23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:

24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD. KJV

Millions came to accept Christ with different motives and agendas that dose not necessarily represent the ultimate plan and purpose of God for their salvation. The ideology of coming to God to be blessed, healed and prospers without allowing the core purpose of inner redemption and reformation take its full place is an abuse of Gods grace and mercy. you are not saved merely to acquire  material things or get emotionally fulfilled your desire and passion in salvation must be directed to Christ alone. You must allow the ministry of the Spirit to shape you into the Father’s original desire and intent for you life.

This footing and foundation of approaching salvation unfortunately has being the default mentality of most denomination within the Body of Christ and this has definitely crippled the development and perfection of the saints. As much as salvation is a gift to whosoever believes in Christ as the Son of the Living God, yet, on the other side of the coin, this powerful gift is built on a corresponding attitude of faith, obedience and precise spiritual knowledge that continually shapes your response and experience to that of a truly converted believer.

This process requires a constant conflict between your spiritual regeneration and mental dominance faculty. Apostle Paul after twenty years in intense ministry writes to the Church of Rome about his personal inner struggle of sanctification and the sinful nature. He admits in Romans chapter 7:15-25 that the sinful nature living in him operates through a law {principle} that can only be defeated through a higher law of God {Romans chapter 8:1-3}.

When there is no proper clarity on how to deal with this inner struggle one tends to keep fallen into the same chaos time and over again and this eventually leads to frustration and eventually cause many to backslide. Pulling down the strongholds {wrong attitudes and false belief systems} of our past life experiences demands a daily conformity to Christ’s mindset according to Romans 12:1-3, before this predominant template and model of behavioral character starts submitting to the power of inner transformation {change} in the life of the believers.

As long as there’s no deliberate engagement of kingdom truth and its principles toward our default defeated paradigm of thinking; we might indeed be positionally saved and make it to heaven, but will surely lose out of the manifested benefits and inheritance that should flow into your life through your redemptive blessing and inheritance here on earth.{Galatians chapter 4, and 5}

The battle toward the development and actualization of regeneration depends on what you and I do with the reality of this gift of salvation in engaging our old conduct on a daily basis.  The definition of kingdom based salvation is never a onetime event as assumed in time saw past, but a life time experience of a continual development of the incorruptible seed in us, waiting to grow for all to see.

The seed of salvation must birth and produce the required fruit of righteousness in 30 fold, 60 fold and hundred respectively. You can grow in your salvational experience from fold to a full grown hundred fold nature in Christ according to

Ephesians: 4:13-15

till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a full grown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

14 that we be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error;
15 but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, (even) Christ; ASV

Teaching objective

At the end of this training members are expected to:

1. Understand what salvation is and mean in biblical context
2. be able to distinguish between salvation and mere religious acts
3. be able to define the knowledge of salvation from the days of John to the present day
4. be able to define the meaning of soul salvation
5. also be able to lead any one to Christ
6. be sure of their salvation and continue to grow in it

Basic foundation

Acts 4:12
12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” NIV

Salvation meaning so-tay-ree-ah in the Greek; is defined as the act of rescue, deliverance from something, or to be saved from an impending harm either spiritual or mental. In other words salvation covers your health both physical and mental.

There is no doubt that the only key to accessing God’s forgiveness, love and mercy is through genuine salvation-A salvation that is based on the knowledge and understanding of the Father’s love, grace and mercy for each one who comes to him with a heart of repentance. Reconciliation comes through the realization of one’s sinful nature and the will to return to the Lord without excuse. The story of the prodigal Son in Luke chapter 15 reveals the profound love and mercy of the Father to all who have strayed away from his love. Nothing brings satisfaction to the human heart except the return of such heart to his creator.

Isa 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. ASV

The vision and objective of the study

The aim and objective of this material is to firmly build and accurately re-establish the core pillars, footing and foundational values of the ministry of a kingdom based regeneration principle. It becomes highly necessary that we make a clear differentiation of God centered salvation from what is being peddled today in most Christian circles. Without adequate recapture of the mind of God for salvation I do not think we will be able to regain the life and authority waiting to manifest through the seed of redemption. A major omission of truth is taking place in the mainstream sectors of the Body of Christ as it relates to the culture and philosophy of salvation.

Many leaders view the message of salvation as a five to ten minutes motivational word that is given to encourage the listeners after the main sermon is preached. As simple as the gift of salvation may look to most people, it requires a sound and a clear understanding, with precise delivery capacity to adequately communicate its life and truth to the people yearning for God. People respond to salvation’s message for different reasons best known to them, yet it is the duty of the one giving the message to clearly present the truth in a manner that truly represents God and the message without compromising the intended purpose, principle, and process of salvation to its receiver.

The demand and complexity of salvation’s function and intention within the human heart needs to be taught while the receiver is given the opportunity to decide either to accept or reject Christ. This understanding helps us to clearly know what is expected of us and how to respond in time of great trial, discouragement and temptation to draw back. Many people get disillusioned after the euphoria of receiving Christ dies down.

The big question is always, where do I go from here? Salvation is just the accessing door to a bigger purpose and vision the Lord has waiting for us. Perversion and misconception of truth is no longer accepted in our days. The Lord is busy redefining and re-engineering his church for higher impact as he restore’s his truth back to the Body. And the gates of hell {tradition, religion and all forms of human philosophies} that have crept into His Church to stop, pollute and neutralize her power of relevance and advancement will no longer prevail.

What is the power of the gospel?

The principle and process of man’s regeneration’s purpose is of great importance to the whole emphasis of the present reformation and restoration of kingdom truth. The power of the gospel {the good news} is engraved on the life Christ lived before his death, the process of his death on the cross of Calvary, and the message he gave his disciples to preach and teach after his ascension.

This is the message of sound biblical salvation we’re called to export to our generation without distortion. The moment the early church allowed other philosophies and ideologies to infiltrate the sanctity of the message and its principle of delivery, they began to lose the authority, power and life of the gospel of the kingdom. If the world is going to come into true realm of divine transformation and restoration, we then need to first accept and start teaching the present reformation gospel of the kingdom and not of our traditional denominations.

Without the restoration of the truth that guides us back toward the path of rediscovery of the whole teaching on regeneration, we will continue to grope in the darkness of Christian religion activity. One of the reason why sound kingdom based teaching is highly needed in this time, is to bring the Church back to the right spiritual view of Christ’s image in relating to the purpose of his death, burial, resurrection and ascension. Many of the so called charismatic/Pentecostal teachings being preached today in regard to the present prophetic apostolic reformation are misrepresenting the core issue of the present kingdom reformation, which strictly addresses the issue of human blindness and deformity of character. To clearly understand the mission of salvation, I believe we will need to firstly understand its true doctrine and purpose holistically. Unfortunately today, the search to understand and be firmly established on sound biblical doctrine in regards to the Spirit of truth has been deliberately avoided in our quest for materialism.

The commercialization of the gospel has continually robbed many of the power to pursue the emancipation of their soul from the hold of the satanic hold. The Lord promises us to pour into our lives blessing that we will not be able to contain if only we can first find and discover the principle of living which is only found in his kingdom.  But the forty minutes of highly hyped commercialized and entertaining preaching has continually made it very difficult for the truth seeker to know, accept, appreciate and understand the very essence of salvation.

Pure and undiluted salvation will address the issue of man’s restoration, reformation and transformation at all spheres of human existence if we’re willing to follow its path. When the true kingdom based recovery message is clearly understood men will start seeing the actualization of the power of regeneration, dominion and immortality at work again.

2 Tim 1:8-10
8 Be not ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but suffer hardship with the gospel according to the power of God;
9 who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before times eternal,
10 but hath now been manifested by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, ASV

Recapturing the truth

One of the most mysterious and profound studies in the word of God is centered on the ministry and doctrine of salvation better known as regeneration. The human reasoning faculty cannot and will not be able to fully comprehend the transforming life experience carried out through the death and ascension of Christ. This salvation –new life in Christ, sets into motion the beginning of man’s ultimate freedom from the inherited fallen Adamic nature through the workings of the power of regeneration and restoration of the new man back to Christ.

When the first man and his wife abdicated their God given position and authority to Satan’s trap of deception and seduction in the garden, the entire human race seed became blind, enslaved and polluted by this one single act of disobedience. Right from that point on the Lord began the journey and process of redeeming mankind through the ages down to the final sacrifice which was paid through the death of Christ on the cross.

Isaiah 53 did not just give us the vivid process and procedure of Christ’s sacrifice for all humanity but also showed us the very principle and pattern of man’s process to freedom from the power of Sin’s nature.  Many have not been told that the word of God is not some kind of magic book of incantation you make when you are in trouble. The word gives us delegated responsibility that we must adhere to if the promise must be ours.

Following the pathway to personal transformation requires a life of complete obedience to the direction and guidance of the Spirit. The scripture says Jesus died for us to show us an example of how to live and grow in our spiritual migration. Many love the promise of the word of God but not the process. Isaiah 53 gives us both the promise and the process of actualization.

The coming of Christ to the world was the turning point of redemption and deliverance {salvation} for all humanity. He came with the message of rebirth, renewal and translation into the kingdom of God via repentance and a lifestyle of obedience, faith and love towards the will Father. Lots of people in his day missed and rejected the message he brought, though they followed him for great miracles, healing and provision of fish and bread as the case may be. Very few followed him for the message of inner reformation and transformation of their lives.

The blind religious order and system of his days prevented most of the people from accepting his message just like we see in our time. Christ’s message was simple and clear for all to see, understand and accept, yet it was the most difficult choice for most due to the soulish template of thinking and the strong religious and traditional philosophy that seeks to control the people.

Remember that the Pharisees and Sadducees were the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who later became the custodians of the Law, passed down to Moses. Their mission was to preserve the law for the people until the coming of the Messiah-the fulfillment of the Law of God which is built on love. They were chosen and assigned to bridge the gap between the old and new that will be manifesting through the message of Christ but the falter in they’re mission.

But when the pattern chosen by God shifted from their old stereotyped pattern of thinking, they became the very stumbling block to the message of repentance and acceptance of the kingdom of God. They fought and stood against Christ their messiah who brought the message of salvation to his people, which was; repent, for the kingdom of God has come near you. Because of their religious and rational thought, they planned and tried to destroy the author of life and very message they were sent to preserve. They indeed missed their day of visitation!

Outside the few numbers of those that got saved during the earthly ministry of Jesus, like the twelve disciples, then the seventy he later sent out, Zacchaeus in {Luke 19; 9} and the blind man in John chapter 9-the in-depth ministry of salvation and redemption was not fully revealed until the early birth of the Church in Act chapter 2, with the first three thousand souls that got saved in just a day; though John and Christ had laid the foundation for this great manifestation of truth boldly proclaimed by the Apostles.

Who are the carriers of the message of salvation?

One of the key ministries of John the Baptist was to baptize people unto repentance. Repentance carries different degrees of meaning, from turning away from Sin to God, to turning from holding unto one level truth to the present revealed emphasis of Spirit God both to the Church and the nations like it seen in Act chapter 3:19-20. Repentance also means a complete turning away from the wrong way of thinking to the required perception of the Spirit.  The word of God can only be clearly understood when there is a genuine sense of repentance in the heart of men. You will notice that Christ message was centered on repentance; He said to the people of his days, repent for the kingdom of God has come near you.

The manifestation or drawing close of the kingdom of God to any generation is strictly based on their ability to completely turn from one point of believe to the required position of the present truth. The more truth is reveal to us, the more we need to repent and migrate to the present emphasis of the Lord for our live, families and community. The ministry of repentance which is centered on kingdom based salvation draws us unto that day of perfection according to Ephesians chapter 4.

True repentance is a complete change of human nature, lifestyle and attitude to God and his environment. The ministry of John was to introduce the people of his day to the key meaning {knowledge}, science or technology of salvation. The prophetic words that went on John’s behalf are, “he will give people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins because of the tender mercy of God. Many who gave heed to the ministry and teaching of John came to be Baptist at the Jordan River. You’ll also notice that is baptism was a remedial process and that prepared the peoples heart from the true baptism that was to be administered by the messiah himself. John said, I Baptist you with water but he that is coming after me shall Baptist you with the Holy Spirit and fire. What a statement!

This scripture and many others seem to suggest that there has to be a clear and precise knowledge of salvation by the people before they are allowed to make such choice. A revelational shift of the message of salvation from the Old Testament concept to the New Testament has to be engraved through sound apostolic teaching in the heart and template of the people before they are given the opportunity.

This explained why three thousand souls got saved in the first preaching of Peter just immediately after the birthing and impartation of the Spirit in the lives of the disciples in the upper room. The community of the new born Church was birthed with the spirit of salvation via the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit. This new life experienced by people who came for ceremonial worship at the template left Jerusalem with new life and hope to their different countries. {Act chapter 2}

Down through the centuries to the present age of the church, the Body of Christ has witnessed a major shift from the doctrinal foundation and the core moral values and principles that builds and enhances the life and Spirit behind sound spiritual development and emancipation from the carnal human nature. Ungodly tradition and humanistic philosophy crept into the heart of the early fathers, who were custodians and ambassadors of the message of truth; they allowed the greed, ambition and quest for political power to creep in and seize and neutralize their position and authority; they forfeited their kingdom mandate to bring reformation and transformation to their generation. This unfortunate turn of events crippled, limited and for a season perverted the whole ideology and essence of what the church is and represents.

Luke 11:52 “Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge, You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.” NIV

The Body of Christ is just beginning to witness the restoration of what I’ll call sound spiritual and doctrinal foundation as we see the fundamental {foundational} ministry of the teacher; prophet and apostle being restored back to their rightful place in Body of Christ. These ascension ministries are responsible for the recapturing of the thought and mind of the Father in the accuracy of laying and building sound biblical doctrine of Christ and the whole concept for effective ministry gifts in the development and restoration of the church.

These ministry gifts will rebuild the core structure and life of the Church which formulate the capacity to come into the full maturation of Christ the Messiah. It is important to re-emphasize that the core ministry of the prophets and apostles is to build sound biblical doctrines through the deep and broad insight into the word of Christ for every area of life which include the message of salvation and its intention for global harvest. Unfortunately today, many who claim to be saved might have to re-examine their basis for salvation on the present ascended truth being restored back to the house of God. The lies, deception and falsehood that have been propagated for centuries must come to an end as we press into the heart of the father to open our eyes of understanding again to his will and ultimate desire for salvation.

There is no way the world can be saved or free from the power of hell if we don’t get the whole concept and meaning of true salvation right in our time. It is highly important to understand that salvation is designed to build the footing, foundation and structure that will carry and house the father’s ultimate desire for mankind. This means that human idea is not allowed to interfere with the message and meaning of regeneration less we’re disqualify in the ministry of soul harvest.

Redefining salvation from an accurate restored concept of truth

Salvation is the reforming, realigning and restoring of the fallen, distorted, perverted and corrupt human nature back to its original place and position in God’s divine order, structure and pattern of existence. To put the definition in its right perspective, one would say that it is the rebirthing of God’s kingdom civilization amongst fallen human race; salvation {regeneration} is the process of accepting and internalizing the nature and principle of God’s kingdom philosophy and culture within human affairs.

This culture {way of life} seeks to invade, impress and imprint the divine nature and government of Christ into man’s world, by correcting his perverted default template of seeing and responding to issue both within and outside he’s community. In other words, when you truly accept and understand the meaning of what you meant when you said Christ should come into your life, your entire life steps into a total different realm of existence-it is called kingdom culture. I wonder if 70% of the people who at one point or the other confessed their sins to God truly and sincerely understood what they were doing.

This season of restoring truth must holistically address and deal with the heart beat of redemption and regeneration as it lays the foundation for true apostolic impact globally. If we’re truly serious about teaching and preparing individuals and the corporate Body of Christ to finish strong, we must then step into the heart or realm of pure kingdom salvation- this will ultimately create the pathway of regaining the lost image and spirit of second man, the last Adam. Please ready 1 Corinthians chapter 15

The doctrine of true kingdom based salvation must be restored to the view of all those who genuinely desire to be save and see the appearance of the Lord within their Body. The scripture says ‘only the pure in heart will see the Lord. {Mathew 5} This acquired sight comes when the footing of the father’s intention for salvation is clearly understood by leaders and adequately pass down to every member of the Body of Christ. Our Salvation creates such opportunity to behold the appearance of the Lord not just in our own lives but within the corrupt society as we totally surrender and commit ourselves to the ministry of purity and holiness, enhanced by the life and grace of the Holy Spirit working in and through us.

The battle for true salvation

Righteousness is a nature and posture we have as a result of walking in the obedience and the newness of our restored spirit before our heavenly father. It’s not the act of self-imposed righteous act, due to some good works we perform in our local assemblies or the community around us. As important and necessary our good work is to the Lord and the community, no amount of pithy or any of these charitable works can qualify us to be righteous before the Lord. Our righteousness is based on a lifestyle of obedience to the will and purpose of the Father.

The reason why we still see so many ungodly attitudes and characters amongst those who claims to be saved is due to the lack of understanding the concept of spirit and soul salvation. Many are truly saved in their spiritman but the reality of that spiritual experience has not been transferred or filtered down to the controlling influence of their soul, such that their character or behavior is regulated through this spiritual newness sitting within their inner man. As much as salvation is a free gift to whosoever accept Christ as their Lord and Savior, yet the whole process of its effect and impact in the transformation of our fallen human nature does not come easy because we’re dealing with not just the spirit of the person but also the soul {site of intellect, emotion and will} realm of men.

Yes, the spirit is made alive once Christ is accepted in truth and in Spirit yet this unregenerated rebellious Soul will constantly fight to stop and hinder ones commitment to lasting deliverance already taking place in the spiritman. Satan and his cohorts are very good in using past issues stored in our memory to fight and try to cripple us from growing in our salvation mandate.

True salvation must deal with the three part aspect of the human life-spirit Soul and Body. To only proclaim that all people need is to merely confess Christ and they’re saved is a half truth and this will eventually become dangerous to the person who just accepted the Lord but still fell like a sinner. Lots of people today are disillusioned and frustrated because of the misinformation and misrepresentation of this salvational truth.

Our battle or victory is not really centered or majored on overcoming Satan like we’ve been made to believe through shortsighted knowledge of the word of God; but rather to overcome our fallen carnal, selfish and blind humanistic nature that continually grants Satan leeway into our unregenerated rebellious Soul, the residence of our emotion, intelligence and will. The fallen rebellious human nature is the number one enemy of man. Those who are truly seeking for emancipation, immortality and the appearance of our Lord within their body will sincerely have to learn to turn the sward of the Spirit which is the word of God against themselves.

• 2Co 10:3 Of course, we are living in the flesh, but we do not fight in a fleshly way.
• 2Co 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the flesh. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
• 2Co 10:5 and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive in order to obey Christ.
• 2Co 10:6 We are ready to punish every act of disobedience when your obedience is complete.

This powerful scripture gives us a clearer picture of what is required of us when it comes to the dealing with the issues of our past frighten ungodly memories Satan uses most time to cripple the advancement of our redemption purpose. Remember the word of the Lord already told us the mission of Satan over the life of a believer; he is come to steal, kill and destroy.

This means that you must be alert to know how he’s trying to steal, kill and destroy your call to follow the Lord. There are several powerful weapons in the word of God that will help us fight and win the deception and seduction of Satan. The power of the cross is the strongest weapon against the lust of the flesh, the pride of life and the deceitfulness of riches that most time gets us distracted from following the Lord.

• 1Pe 1:13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep a clear head, and set your hope completely on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.

• 1Pe 1:14 As obedient children, do not be shaped by the desires that you once had in your ignorance.

The cross is one of the key weapons given to all believers to carry on a daily basis in order to constantly put the flesh and its passion where they belong or else the fight against the enemy will be lost without remedy. The enemy we’re called to fight and overpower is within us. This truth must be crystal clear to any one sincerely desiring lasting freedom. The implanting and manifestation of the kingdom of God begins with the reality and demonstration of submitting the power of our emotion, will, desire and intellectual faculty to Christ.  The redefinition and re-understanding of the whole concept and purpose of salvation becomes one of the restoring purpose and ministry of the Holy Spirit in our day.

Correcting wrong definition

A wrong paradigm leads to a wrong conclusion while wrong conclusion leads to a wrong emphasis of half truth and its manifestation to people; to experience lasting freedom we have to start by recapturing the whole essence of the mind of Christ for his death, burial resurrection and ascension in our redemptive purpose. Little or nothing will be achieved without precisely taking the whole process and purpose of redemption into account.

Christ had to die spirit, soul and Body for our redemption and regeneration to be accepted and perfected by the Father. Without the shedding of blood the scripture says there can’t be remission of sin. To take delivery of what Christ has done on the cross we have to come via the cross.  Our spiritual inheritance begins with the knowledge and application of the reality found in the life of the cross. The whole essence of salvation starts and ends with following the path the cross of Christ laid down for us.

Essence of progressive salvation {Eph 1:15-19}

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, NIV

As it is made clear through the revelation of word of God that salvation itself is a means to an end and not the end itself. It’s becomes clearer what the Lord desired to achieve through salvation when we sincerely understand the whole purpose of the ministry of death and the reality of the new life in Christ. Salvation is a journey or process to a higher development and dimension {maturity} of existence {life} in Christ, which empowers us to govern and take back our lost position of dominion over self life.  The corrupt humanistic system of the world and the ruling forces of darkness that shapes culture and all forms of ungodly tradition never stop in fighting those who are willing to give-up the self life. Salvation is not just a liaison or passport to heaven as it has been widely preached and believed. We have to press into the spirit realm via the root of the living word to see and hear the ultimate intention of the Father’s counsel for our salvation.

Rom 12:1-2

2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. NLT

When we accept Christ into our lives, our lost spiritual organs and faculties starts to journey back to their correct position and posture in Christ. The restoration of these organs begins to attract the very nature of the Spirit through the fruit of the spirit taking dominion over the former rebellious soulish and carnal attitude. It is true that our salvation is spiritual yet we also live in a natural realm of life govern by fallen faculties of the human soul. It is in this area of the mind that most of the work needs to be intensified if we must truly enjoy total benefit of our salvation. The character and personality that defines who we are is resident within the nature and faculty of our soul.

The salvation of human spirit, soul and body is one teaching that must be clearly taught and precisely understood from a true apostolic foundation and concept in order to get the broader vision, mission and objective of our redemption within the context of our individual existence. We cannot over emphases this core reality of existence in God’s community, if we must make it into the realm of demonstration of kingdom life and authority.

The struggle and battle of the un-reformed and un-surrendered soul of man has continually limited, blocked and crippled the penetration of force of Christ’s divine light to do a total work of regeneration and ultimate transformation of our original image in Christ. Irrespective of what we know or are informed about within the parameter of our sensory human knowledge, it will do us no good if the life transforming revelation of divine truth has no penetrating capacity {power} to adjust and compel the soul to a state of absolute obedience to the living word.

2 Cor. 10:3-6
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. NKJV

Most people came to the knowledge of salvation as a tool to securing and enriching themselves for a better life on the earth, and also see it as the passport to making it to heaven. Salvation is not an escapist mentality but the key to emancipating you and I from the crippling power of darkness that held us bound in the chains of sin and ungodly human philosophy.

The concept of true redemption was highly preached as the only access key back to God’s original plan and purpose for man’s nature to be transformed and conformed to his original pattern of divine life to subdue and transform the earth. It becomes highly important to know that we are not redeemed for self-interest; rather we are saved to serve as the Father’s vessel of honor and to manifest his ultimate plan and purpose in the earth.

The wrong notion of seeing salvation as a mere key to enriching and advancing our personal interest and agenda ought to be corrected and re-adjusted within the mentality of Church leaders in order to have precise functional template and value system of accepting the Lord as ones personal Lord and savior within the present generation of believers and the next upcoming generation.

When this core truth becomes entrenched in the mind of every new believer, it becomes so easy to accept and allow and transfer the whole process of accurate message of regeneration and transformation to the next order of existence.

The revealed mystery of salvation

The mystery and reality of regeneration, the process and pattern to accurate transformation, is still very much vague in the minds of most preachers and teachers of Christian theology. The reason for this is attributed to the neglecting of the core revelational principle, pattern and system of the ultimate intent of the Father’s purpose for a lasting freedom, which precisely is based on the accurate access into the divine knowledge {revelation} of Himself. Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but my father who is in heaven….

When man forsakes the pathway that leads to the light {Christ} to true illumination, every other acquisitions and passionate seeking of power, wealth and wisdom, becomes polluted and corrupted by the deep darkness setting within our un-regenerated soul; the realm that forms our faculty and physical response personality or character.

The pursuance of all types of religion, including Christianity does not have the full capacity and power to sanctify and satisfy the hollow and emptiness of the fallen Adamic nature without a life of total surrender to the path of the Lord. Your salvation is a call to relationship with your heavenly Father and not a formula taught by religious men. Religion was never God’s idea and if you’re going to succeed in your spiritual journey, you must learn to stay away from all forms of human tradition and ideologies that have no sound foundation and biblical continuity.

Regeneration, the principle of the second man, the last Adam

1 Corinthian 15:20-28

20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. 24

Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all. NIV

It is highly possible for one to engage in rigorous Christian or church activity if you like, and still be highly obscured and blind to the true meaning and definition of what true redemption and righteousness is all about.This inability to walk in the reality of what I call, the power of kingdom life has led many to doubt their salvation. Many today are frustrated because what was offered and defined to be the key to eternal freedom has turned out to be a lie. The heart of most Christians in the church today is still as it was before they joined the church community.

Seeking clearer amplification of regeneration

The concept of this divine regeneration will be more amplified by studying other men of God’s material who the Lord has given clearer insight and understanding in this theme. We will be looking at various materials that I believe will give us deeper revelational knowledge that has the power to clarify this divine mystery of regeneration and ultimate conformity into the lost image of God in the Garden.  I truly believe that only when the truth comes in unity and accurate strategic synergy and symphony of the Spirit can we corporately see the full spectrum of Gods divine {revelation} light manifesting in our dark soul realm.

The three dimensions of salvation will be considered carefully in the light of present revealed truth. The salvation of the spirit is mostly familiar with almost everyone, while that of the soul and Body is still obscured to millions of believers in the Church. Without a full understanding of the salvation of the total man, we cannot step into the realm of fulfilling the essence of redemption and regeneration. As we are about to step into the third day of our spiritual journey back to the place of ultimate restored image, we have to understand the present heartbeat of heaven.

More than ever before, heaven seeks to bring the Church into the realm of grace and discipline to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. This realm deals with accurate character transformation and formation of the seed of truth within the spirit man via the help of the Holy Spirit. The life, power and grace of the Spirit of God are highly needed in this journey to the third dimension of manifesting the glory of your salvation. Like I said earlier, salvation is both spiritual and mental development to the required posture of complete maturity.

The image of God that was lost through the fall of the first man in the Garden is being restored through the ministry of salvation. Seeing perfected men and women stand before the throne of God is the ultimate dream of Christ. The scriptures say the world is waiting for the manifestation of these Sons of God-those who have been totally transformed through their continual conformity to the mind and nature of Christ.

The Father is not pleased with our mere spiritual activity that lacks the necessary spiritual capacity to transit us to the place spiritual maturity that ultimately activates the illuminating light of Christ within us to change our environment. The salvation of the soul is one key issue today that we must get right individually and collectively as members of the Body of Christ if we must make the right and final transition into the place of effective and productive humans. This area of our journey is where most people find themselves struggling and confused due to very little teaching and clarity in this realm.

We need to open up to the ministry of the Holy Spirit to guide, lead and redirect our heart to the place of divine truth as it regards to this concept of freedom in Christ so that we can truly be vessels meet for the master use. The second part of this material put together by a close friend who the Lord has enlighten in this area will give clearer understanding and amplification to the ministry of salvation and regeneration in regards to the present truth of God to his Church.
