Some lesson to learn from Boston bombing

Some lesson to learn from Boston bombing

Our heart and deepest prayer goes out to the city of Boston, and the entire nation of America as they morn the tragic killing of innocent lives and hundreds wounded in this last terrorist attack.

However, as prophetic people, what are the lessons that can be learnt

The nation of America is known and believed to be one of the super power of the world in terms of their system of intelligence and sophisticated weaponry. While they where preparing themselves and their allies incase of a nuclear attack from North Korea, a more subtle enemy saw their focus on the North as a strategic opportunity to distract and invade the nation unnoticed.

1- We cannot live in the delusion of thinking we are secure when our walls and gates are already invaded by the enemy.

2- There as to be a constant redefinition of spiritual intelligence and authority as the strategy of the enemy’s attack changes from season to season.

3- While the power of Gods word is eternal by nature. however, how the word is fashioned, handle and understood within our spirit man must be updated from time to time. Certain spiritual method we once use in defeating the enemy in the past have become just too weak and obsolete in dealing with the more complex challenges of our time. The current speaking and emphasis of the Spirit defines to us the kind of weaponry needed to expose and destroy the activity of darkness. There is a need for spiritual upgrade.

4- We cannot afford to be cut off guard. Our first duty is to prevent the invasion of the enemy, and not to merely manage the assault of darkness on our lives.

5- when you shift from the values, standards and the principle of building your life,family, city or nation according to the divine pattern, you automatically abdicate your authority and power to lead and secure the future.

6- The enemy usually take advantage of a weak-link within. Ones there is devision of vision, purpose, value and objective as a community, the enemy already have access into the land; regardless of how alert and prepared the guards on our walls and gates may be. A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.

7- True leadership cannot be defined as a gray color, it’s either black or white, true or false. some of the ungodly values and humanistic policies made by lawmakers to accommodate everyone’s ideology or belief system has made the life of the people more vulnerable to attack and destruction.

8- Except the Lord watches our city, all our secured intelligence and sophisticated weapons cannot stop an enemy determine to wipe us off the planet.

9- We are learning daily that even the most powerful nation are still vulnerable once their sense of awareness of the change in season become weakened and dull.

10- The enemy uses terrorism to release and spread the spirit of fear and anxiety in other to cripple society from advancing. We must never give in to the spirit of fear, masqueraded in terrorism.

11- The nation of America and its leadership seriously need the intercession of believers globally.

12- Righteousness still exalt a nation and sin remains a reproach…

13- We must learn to arise and shine the light of Christ kingdom even in the midst of the greatest form of darkness around. The best time to shine the light of God is in the midst of darkness.

14- we need to learn to trust God and not our human wisdom because they will surely fail

15- Any society that rejects the whole counsel of God for living will find it very difficult to experience lasting and meaningful peace and joy

The act of parenting

The act of parenting

I will like to start this note by saying that parenting from Gods perspective is not limited to the act of natural child birth. Some of the finest of believers I have had the opportunity to meet and work with do not have their own biological children, yet they exhibit the grace, wisdom, understanding and strength any caring parents could exercise. God has continued to use these men and women to birth things from the Spirit realm which are being use to parent individuals, communities, cities and nations.

The scripture speaks volumes of the spiritual wealth of this caliber of humans within his kingdom. whichever way or method individuals decides to choose in child delivery do not make them less spiritual. what is important is that God has committed a huge assignment into the hands of mortals that require more than human resources or ingenuity.

Raising a child is not as easy as teaching them one plus one equals two, or asking them to repeat after you; A for Apple, B for Ball C for Cat. Bringing up children means that first, you are fully aware of the wrong values and attitudes that once shaped your own life and the environment you live in, and that you are consciously fighting those values within and around you by embellishing the higher standard and values of Gods life into your heart so that your child do not unconsciously attract the wrong vibes into his or her life.

Secondly, to groom a child means to be fully aware of the divine blueprint of God for your child as it relates to his future destiny, especially when he start interacting with a world where there are no absolute right or wrong. In society where the democratic voice of wrong desire seem to be more stronger that the values of rightness, parents and caregivers need to carefully observe what they think, say and do around there children.

it is highly important to guard the minds of children by being conscious of the circumstance and influence that tend to shape their thought pattern. Are you concern about what your child watches and listen to on the media? do you know the kind of games the play or their Xbox? do you sensor their program on Dstv and educate them on the matter of sex and their sexuality?

You as a parent cannot relegate your duty to Disney world and expect the best to come out of them. The word of God is our blueprint for raising and building the lives of our children and its not enough to read it to them before they go to bed, you must be the word they read daily. You This does not mean that these men and women are not at home, it means that they are completely disengaged regarding what is happening in the lives of their children while watching. A child does not wakeup one day just to decide he wants to be a gay or lesbian. the signs and signal have been there without been noticed by the parent.

it is alarming to know the huge numbers of gays and lesbians in the nation of South Africa most especially among colored teenagers. This is a pointer to why in every five marriages here, three has already experience divorce. They say around seventy percent of youths-young adult are suicidal. A child does not become an armed robber a day, it all start in the home without parents noticing or taking their stand against the wrong. weak and irresponsible parenting is a disgrace to humanity. I am concern about the quality of parenting most especially in South Africa.

A generation is almost been lost to the wrong side of the western culture. The values of respect in homes, submission, care, responsibility, accountability, dignity and humility, which are the building blocks of a happy home is almost none existence here. How do we build a nation if the house and marriages in the shamble? what in the world is happening todays parents?

The life of Jesus earthly parent played a huge role in developing and preparing all we saw our Lord produced in the earth. God is again looking for a generation of Joseph and Mary who will be obedient to the heavenly vision regarding the destiny of their children. In a world where gays and lesbians are given the right to Marry and adopt children think of what will happen to the value system of these children. Parents can no longer afford to sleep in regards to the accurate formation of the values and moral standard of their children.

God has sandaled all parents with one of the most important assignment in life and that is to help raise and shape the lives of children by preparing them for the complex emotional challenges of tomorrow. Think of what would have happen if Joseph and Mary did not understand the nature of their assignment in regards to preparing our Lord Jesus for his ministry.

Every children, regardless of how or where they are born carries a unique assignment to be fulfilled in time. You as a parent is required to have a clear prophetic insight regarding what the Lord will have your child become for him in the earth. parenthood is calling beyond the provision of good education and financial security. it is more than given your children the good things of life. it is highly important we provide a sold foundation for the development of our children, most especially in a society where poverty and insecurity tend to shape the mentality of most children upbringing.

The creative wealth of our children should not be negotiated for anything. however, to set them on a path that will help to understand early in life that God is the one who define the outcome of the life is highly important to framing the template of their value system. if you as a parent have no guiding values, principles and systems that determine your life, you easily pass the same template of life to your children.

What am saying is, parent are the first and last school children will ever attend. whatever training given to your child outside the walls of their home is only an addition. watching how my son Samuel religiously study me is scaring, he notice every thing I do and sometime I feel he could read my thoughts just by looking at me. such understanding gives me deed clarity into so many things about my own life and the world of children. Parents need to understand the world children live in in others to relate with them in a way that will build and shape their destiny for Gods glory.

Every moment you child grows, he or she is being formed into something that could either impend or enhance his tomorrow. in days where parents and caregivers hardly have the time to pray or study the word of God in searching his mind for these tomorrow leaders, I wonder what kind of values are being built into the lives of children.

many do not relate the grooming and development of children to an act of spiritual warfare. warfare mean building in opposite direction to the humanistic values that shapes and control many homes and marriages today. if you as a parent do not understand that God gave you those children for a specific reason that requires more than just trying to teach them good moral values, am afraid, you are still spiritually blind.

You need to seek the face of God like the mother of Samson did to know what God will have your children become. You need to continually stand in the gap for your child and the rest of children around you.

The hearts of children are like magnet that attracts the unseen vibes, thought, desire and ambition of their parent. When a person tries to live his life according to the standard of Gods kingdom before his children, they will eventually follow the right path that leads to righteousness. While it is crucial we give our children the best of what money can buy, we also need to remind ourselves that the most valuable life principles as it where cannot be bought or thought in a class room. They must be lived out by the attitude and character of parents or caregivers.

if God has given you the responsibility to raise a child or be a caregiver, you must accept the responsibility to change your attitude and values for the best so you don’t destroy the future of the child through your ignorance or irresponsibility.

A journey beyond Easter

A journey beyond Easter,

There is a tendency for us in the Church to turn powerful spiritual realities into mere rituals and ceremonies celebrated yearly. The message of Easter, which is the revelation of the resurrection of our Lord should not be relegated to a day’s event. Rather, we should encourage one another by reminding ourselves daily on the ministry and importance of personal resurrection. resurrection, we should all experience if indeed we are walking in truth and total submission to the voice and ways of the Holy Spirit.

one of several reasons why the church, individual or corporate seem weak today is the fact that the foundational truth in which the Church was founded on are almost nonexistence due to the humanistic ideologies we have ignorantly accepted.

This past Easter should be a prophetic signal, calling you and me not to forget the basis of Christian fundamentals as we press unto kingdom exploit. we remind ourselves that the apostolic ministry of the Church began From the foundation but does not stop there. in the days of building unto perfection, one aspect of kingdom truth should not be neglected or exchanged in place of others. There must be balance, direction and clarity to what the Spirit of the Lord is doing in his Church, which we are in body and experience.

It took apostle Paul about 20years or more after the statement “i die daily” to “I have been crucified with Christ” Please do not allow religion or humanistic ideas to limit your mind regarding the revelational message of resurrection. Easter is not a few days event that start from the lent-season. religious beliefs, which are the traditions of men, nullified the power to experience Christ in the lives of men. the hope of human race depend on the foundation of Christ resurrection,and if you as a believer have not come to terms with this truth, am afraid, you have not begun the journey of Emancipation.

The foot of the cross is where your life and mine begin. How much you know by heart of the power of resurrection will determine what you will experience and display as a christian. For all i care, you may preach prosperity, love, faith and hope and other byproduct messages we feed on today in the church, if you are yet to embrace the ministry of the CROSS, DEATH, BURIAL, RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION you cannot fully enter the reality of Gods GLORY.

We must die daily to experience the full inheritance of a glorified life. Please do not give a listen to those who are going to tell you Christ has done it all, you don’t have to go through the cross. some will even go further to say, you are making the work of grace of no effect. well then, if that argument is true, we should then be seeing the fruits of such ideology in the way we handle issue and the challenges of life. We should by now to have reach the entire world with the gospel of the kingdom.

Kings, presidents, governments and their institutions should be lining up at the gates of our churches and ministries in search of answers and solution for their socioeconomic challenges. that’s what I saw and read in the bible, but that’s not what we are witnessing in generation of todays christians. believers of the 21st century need to be shown the ancient pathway to kingdom lifestyle. There cannot be a kingdom lifestyle without the embracing the life of the cross.

Indeed, Christ had paid the price once and for all, however, he told us to daily carry out cross and follow him. Well, what is the purpose of the Cross? The cross if the place where you die. . It is common sense that if there is a cross, there must be death, burial, resurrection and ascension in our spiritual experience.

All believers in Christ are found in one level of these process. whare are you?
. Our journey has face and a direction to the city of God.
