‘He always does exactly what he says.’ 2 Corinthians 1:19

Ever had a friend break a promise? The cheque doesn’t come, the repairman doesn’t show up, your date doesn’t call? Count on it, people will let you down. But God won’t, ‘He always does exactly what he says. He…fulfills all…[His] promises’ (2 Corinthians 1: 19-20 TLB). Knowing that enables you to keep walking by faith while you wait for them to be fulfilled. James MacDonald says: ‘It’s the not-knowing that crushes us. We doubt…worry…despair…falter and fail…If we knew how this was going to play out we’d be okay. We can take a bad day…month…year…or decade…as long as we know how it ends. A health crisis…a question about your marriage…uncertainty over a child…we all have areas we need to hold on to what God said…He knows what he promised, He can’t lie, and He can’t forget. He’ll deliver on time. Who else can make a promise like that? Now I wish I could tell you it always figures out perfectly in our lifetime, but I’d be lying…You can’t make sense of God’s promises with this life only. You must factor in the reality of eternity…Eternity brings it all together…eternal life…and the assurance of heaven are what make His promises so precious.’ Victor Frankl, who survived the horrors of the Holocaust, said, ‘A weak faith is weakened by predicaments and catastrophes, whereas a strong faith is strengthened by them.’ A Sunday school class was memorising Psalm 23 and little Tommy couldn’t get beyond the first verse. On the big day he stepped up to the microphone, grinned at the audience and announced, ‘The Lord is my Shepherd-and that’s all I know!’ And it’s all you need to know for now.

This is the condition and if you follow it will, you will not fail.

Get yourself ready to receive:
If you say YES i am willing and ready Lord…
Be it unto you according to your faith so prepare to receive your bountiful blessing which will come over you right now where you are sitting as you flow through this massage.

This is the first instruction from above if you are willing to receive such an uncommon blessing.

Imagine you as a huge vessel:
Be a large vessel with no taps below. Meaning your heart must be fully for God and God alone in every thing and in all areas of your life. God is saying that your heart is divided as He can see right now. Part to your self interest, part to your ministry, part to your wife, part to your children, part to your friends and many more taps some full and some half open. Can you see the picture of a vessel with the taps below it? Taps under your Vessel that makes you dry up from day to day when your focus are no inline with God’s will in your life.

Forbid this:
You say God is first in your life but you put other things first before him and He does not like that my dear friends. Please allow your vessel to be filled with the fulness of God. Don’t try doing things for others but allow yourself being filled up and overflowing. Allow the overflow to come from above and not from you opening the taps below which will mean or be seen as the blessings are from you. No No No says father God. He wants to be thee provider for all your needs without your help or doings. You much be filled to the bream without you doing anything apart from praising father God for all.

What happens when you are totally full:
Others will be blessed as you come around them. How do you like that people? Your appearance and presence will change the scene of the area. Because you are around people will be blessed by your being around them. Don’t you want that uncommon blessing? People will come running to you just to hear an encouraging word from you that will build there day.

Give glory to the Lord if this words have opened your eyes today to start a new chapter in your life before this year 2009 ends.

Hallelujah to Jesus….!!!!!!!

May father God richly and bountifully bless you all in all through the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour.

Apostle K. Lave / Zurich, Switzerland.

The Design and Purposes of God Август 15, 2009

writen By Katrinka Bootsman

«In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth» (Gen. 1:1) That was how it all started and everything was in order, everything was good. Then God created man and woman and put them into his creation. They were given the work of taking care of the Garden of Eden. But they did not fulfill their purpose as God intended. They introduced disorder into a world of order. Sin and death came about as a result of their failure of purpose.

But even though the world is no longer in perfect order, as we look at our world around us we can see God. We can still see the result of His beauty and purpose in the order we still find there in nature. Simple things often go unseen. This morning as I looked out of my window I saw a tree. The majesty of this evergreen tree loomed above me. This tree is just a baby now. They tell me it will grow up to be 35 meters tall ! What an amazing thing that people can actually expect such uniformity in nature! Why is it that one tree in the forest towers above the others to such a majestic height and another tree in the same forest only grows to the height of 10 meters? They have been given that uniformity by the Creator.

 

The Lord our God has programmed nature. With His matchless design, He has caused all things to fulfill the expectations He gave them. A bee always makes honey, and never milk. A cow always makes white milk and never gives honey. Skunks always have an awful smell, and the rose always give off a sweet fragrance. The order of our world is strong evidence that there is a Creator, that there is Someone who cares for it.

 

You and I also have our purpose in this world. Unlike the tree in the forest, we have been given a free will, a choice in life. What will we decide? As Adam and Eve, will we disrupt this world by choosing the wrong way to live? Or will we fulfill our destiny and become a blessing in this world according to His will? What IS our purpose for being in this world? The answer is given in Ecclesiastes 12:13-14,

 

«Here is the conclusion of the matter:

Fear God and keep his commandments,

For this is the whole duty of man.

For God will bring every deed into judgment,

Including every hidden thing,

Whether it is good or evil.»

timacy With God

 
They Can Tell You’ve Been With Jesus
| By Mike Bickle

Years ago while speaking to a group of new Christians, I noticed a beautiful, young, blonde girl across the room. I flipped out! I had never felt such intense emotions as those that filled me when I gazed across the room at Diane, the girl who was to become my wife. On our first date I was amazed that she seemed to share my feelings, and we became engaged after just one date.

My deep love for Diane and my desire to be with her helped me understand the love Christ feels for His bride. The prayer He prayed just before His death, recorded in John 17, is especially revealing. He said, «Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am» (v. 24, NKJV). Here was my Lord, only hours before His agonizing death on Calvary, crying out to the Father with intense cravings for His bride—for me!

He was consumed with love for His bride and longed to have her with Him for eternity.

Toward the end of the prayer the focus changes from …. {Read more}

Prayers Men Pray
Help! My Husband Is an Intercessor! | By Eddie Smith

«Could you come down out of the heavenlies long enough to give me a hand with this dirty laundry?»

Have you ever uttered those words in your home? Some wives have trouble pulling their husbands away from the TV set. Others struggle to keep them from bringing work home from the office. But a growing number of women these days are asking: «How do I deal with my husband, the intercessor?»

First, let me congratulate you women who are married to intercessors. Of all the ministries to which a man could …. {Read more}

Knowing God
God’s Passionate Love
| By Sam Storms

What does God think about when He thinks about you? When God meditates on you in His heart, what does He feel? When God focuses His eyes on your soul, what does He see? When God opens His mouth to speak of you, what does He say?

Perhaps many of you would answer those questions like this: He thinks badly of me; He feels repelled by me. He sees all my ugliness, and He says, Yuk!

Nothing could be further from the truth! Notwithstanding what …. {Read more}

 

 

 
The Lowe-Down
 Are You Addicted to S_ _? | By Valerie G. Lowe

Several years ago my friend mustered up the nerve to tell me about her struggle with lust. Even though she wasn’t dating anyone, she was afraid her fixation would eventually seduce her into having premarital sex.

Thinking about her problem made me want to blog about premarital sex, a topic I believe the church often shuns. But why? Christian singles have sex or want to have sex too. And though the Bible prohibits such behavior, that hasn’t stopped believers from going too far.

Sadly, some Christian singles behave as if there are no consequences to sex outside of marriage—but there are. Dr. Freda McKissic Bush, a Christian, a board-certified OB-GYN and co-author of Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex Is Affecting Our Children, says premarital sex and extramarital affairs can unleash a host of …. {Read more}

 

 

 
Timeless Treasures
Grieve Not the Holy Spirit
| By Phoebe Palmer

Daily my heart is cleaving more closely to Christ and getting more detached from earthly objects. The weaning process is going on. I find the closer I get to the heart of Infinite Love—the nearer to the Son of Righteousness—the more sensitively do I feel, to my heart’s deepest core, everything that is contrary in spirit, word or action to the law of love.

If we do, indeed, get nearer to the Son of Righteousness, we cannot help but see with greater vividness …. {Read more}

Fueling the Fire
Finding Security in the Father
| By Brenda J. Davis

We’ve likely had many opportunities to learn that seeking acceptance from anyone other than God is sinful, not to mention futile. But the hurts we experience in life can sometimes leave us feeling such rejection that we become desperate for people’s approval. This sets us up for more heartache since no one can consistently give us the kind of approbation we need.

No human being can accurately assess our worth. Only our Creator …. {Read more}
