In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering but on Cain and his offering He did not look with favour… (Genesis 4:3-5 NIV).

Beloved, the Cain and Abel story is a popular Bible story. We know Cain to be Evil because he kills his brother and I know most of us think there’s no way we can go that far but Cain actions did not start with murder. Where did it all start? After Cain and Abel were born, our feature text tells us that in the course of time they both brought an offering before the Lord but while Abel’s offering was accepted, Cain’s wasn’t

So, what was wrong with Cain and his offering? Here, we are introduced to an act of divine worship were both brothers brought an offering before God but the question to ask is if they knew what kind of offering to bring. Well, Hebrews 11:4 gives us a clue… By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did… and we know faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ (Romans 10:17 NIV).

These were boys brought up in the same home, listened to the same teaching about God but only one responded accordingly. Both men came to church to worship God but being found in a place of worship isn’t enough.

Beloved, Cain represents Christians that come to church and try to pay God off; a way of saying they want God’s favour but when it comes to living their lives, they want to be their own master, doing things their own way; a haphazard worshipper while Abel’s relationship with God was wholehearted and he worshipped God accordingly. The haphazard worshipper would always persuade himself that his worship is acceptable to God. He is pleased with himself but God never tells such a person that He is pleased with them because God sees their heart.

Beloved, nothing is really known about God except what He reveals through His word. God tells us how He should be worshiped and each of us in our approach to Him is either Cain or Abel; we either believe and completely submit to His word or we question, misinterpret and decide what is right by our own reasoning.

Today, after what Christ has done for us, the Bible is clear on how we worship God… I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the MERCIES OF GOD, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a LIVING SACRIFICE, holy (devoted, consecrated) and WELL PLEASING TO GOD, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship (Romans 12:1 AMPC).

This is true worship backed with your lifestyle and the question is… ARE YOU CAIN? ARE YOU A HAPHAZARD WORSHIPPER?

You are My witnesses, says the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know Me, believe Me and remain steadfast to Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior (Isaiah 43:10-11AMP).

Beloved, I remember the time when a friend told me that people were fond of looking at her strange because of the way she worshiped the Lord in Christain gatherings until one day, the Lord had to tell someone close to her who was watching her as she worshipped Him that she was reacting like that because He was the only One she had.

Beloved, I tell you; there are some things that people tell me that I can’t shake off that easily. This one topped the list. Can you imagine the Lord having to say that about you? They said it casually but it ministered to me greatly… She is reacting like that because I am the only One she’s got‎. This means the Lord had been observing her go through her tests and trials and was convinced that yes; this one is relying on no one else to see her through but Me.

Wasn’t this the whole point of Job’s trial‎? Satan told the Lord…‎ reach out and take away everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face!” (Job1:11 NLT) but no matter how had the devil tried, Job stood firm.

Beloved, I can’t help but wonder whether the Lord is saying the same thing about me? When the Lord zeros in on my life, would He be able to say truly, she had proven to Me that I am the only One that she’s got? I hope so. What about you? When going through adversity, are you able to say… though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!‎ (Habakkuk 3:17-18 AMPC)

Beloved, this is a good time to start renouncing anything in your life that you have been looking up to knowingly or unknowingly. ‎Why not make this your prayer today?

I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead… (Philippians 3:10 NLT)

Beloved, there’s this gospel song by the Nigerian Gospel artist Sinach titled “More of You” with wonderful lyrics that says.. ‘I want more of You Jesus… the more I know You… The more I want to know you… Jesus… More of You…’

It’s a very beautiful and simple song however, I’ve had to stop and ask myself… what does this actually mean? What do I mean when I say… The more I know You… The more I want to know you… Jesus…? What steps do I actually take to want to know Jesus more?

The story of Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch comes to mind. The Bible says… Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Go south to the road… that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch… This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, AND ON HIS WAY HOME WAS SITTING IN HIS CHARIOT READING THE BOOK OF ISAIAH THE PROPHET. The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him (Acts 8:26-31 NIV).

Beloved, how many times have you left a Christian gathering with that kind of hunger for more of God’s word? I remember listening to someone say they laugh at how many Bibles people leave behind after service and don’t come back for it. If it were their wallets, surely they would come back for it… but not their Bibles. That can wait till next Sunday. But this Ethiopian eunuch was returning from a worship service and because of his hunger for more, was found reading his Bible. As a result, Jesus chose to reveal Himself to Him…

This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading: “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter… In His humiliation He was deprived of justice… His life was taken from the earth.” The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus (Acts 8:32-35 NIV).

Isn’t it amazing how Jesus would reveal Himself at your level? This man’s eagerness didn’t stop there… As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him (Acts 8:36-38 NIV).

Beloved, this is a simple example of someone asking for more? I want more of You Jesus… How hungry are you? What steps are you taking to want to know Jesus more? How much time do you spend with Him in prayer and in His word?

07. June 2017 · Comments Off on THINGS LOOK SO TINY FROM ABOVE · Categories: Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Peace, Relationship, Spiritual Growth, Victory, Worship

I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me… said, COME UP HERE, AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT MUST TAKE PLACE IN THE FUTURE. At once I came under the [Holy] Spirit’s power… (Revelation 4:1-2 AMPC).

Beloved, I recently heard someone says that it was only when they started flying that they saw that all the buildings that looked so massive from the ground level became very tiny from above and the size decreased as they went higher till they could hardly see anything.

So true and probably why John who wrote the Book of Revelation was shown great revelations about things to come from above. He said… INSTANTLY I WAS IN THE SPIRIT (NLT)… I WAS CAUGHT UP AT ONCE IN DEEP WORSHIP (MSG) and his eyes were indeed open to the kind of worship that takes place in heaven. In fact, the whole of Revelation 4 is dedicated to describing it but then the next chapter records John crying over NOTHING. John said… I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it. But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, HAS WON THE VICTORY. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.” (Revelation 5:4-5 NLT).

“Really? Oh Okay”. I’m sure he must have asked himself… “why am I crying then? Everyone here is busy worshiping God and I am here crying over nothing”. The Amplified translation says Jesus has… OVERCOME AND CONQUERED…

Isn’t this what Jesus was trying to tell John and his other disciples when He said… I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.” (John 16:33 NLT)

Beloved, for John to get a revelation like this, he was not walking in the flesh but in the spirit. The flesh will tell you all the things that are wrong now but working in a spiritual dimension gives you insight into what the Lord is doing and the unstoppable victory that’s ahead regardless of your situation. WHILE JEREMIAH WAS STILL CONFINED in the courtyard of the guard, the Lord gave him this second message: “This is what the Lord says—the Lord who made the earth, who formed and established it, whose name is the Lord: Ask me and I WILL TELL YOU REMARKABLE SECRETS YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THINGS TO COME (Jeremiah 33:1-3 NLT).

Beloved, the Lord wants you to come higher because those things that have blinded your vision looks tiny from above. You need to engage yourself in true worship; allowing the Holy Spirit to guide your life. You need to focus on developing your spiritual man so you are not tossed about by things going on around you.

Remember, things look so tiny from above.

I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return] (Philippians 1:6 AMP).

Beloved, a few days ago, I asked why we feel we need to worry about time more than the owner of time and I received a comment from a dear sister saying; “God’s timing is best, but when you are going through a 20 year storm or furnace, you definitely ask how long Lord? It is worse, especially when you know that there is nothing too hard for the Lord”.

Well, how does one respond to this? Why is it taking this long Lord? Have you forgotten about our dear sister? Well, let’s see…

Beloved, as it happens, this sister also sent a second message following her first message and the message said; “A testimony from my trip to Uganda. Last week as I checked in at the airport, I was told that my flight was over booked and that I was going to reroute. I just said to the Kenya airways lady as long as I travel on that very day, that’s fine with me because I only had a week in Uganda. Anyway, I was rerouted via Addis Ababa on Ethiopia airlines. I was also compensated £517 for the inconvenience. I bought my ticket £539, so minus £517, my ticket cost me £22. UK to Uganda for £22, now if that’s is not God, then I don’t know! Victory belongs to Jesus”.

Glory hallelujah! Victory definitely belongs to Jesus and yes, it is God. So, my question now is; isn’t He the same God? At least we know He hasn’t deserted our dear sister because He just gave her a mind-blowing testimony and like a friend once said to God; “give me ‘Comfort’ while I’m waiting for ‘Patience’. In order words, while waiting patiently for the promises of God to be fulfilled in my life, at least give me something to comfort me as I wait.

Beloved and He does. The Bible says… Blessed be the Lord, WHO DAILY LOADS US WITH BENEFITS, The God of our salvation! (Psalm 68:19 NKJV)

Please know today that, whatever it is you have been waiting on the Lord for… The Lord will perfect that which concerns you (Psalm 138:8). In the meantime, bless the Lord for all He has done. All He is doing and All He will do.

O my soul, bless God. From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name! O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing! He forgives your sins—every one. He heals your diseases—every one. He redeems you from hell—saves your life! He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown. He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal. He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence (Psalm 103:1-5 MSG).

Prophet Isaiah said… In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him were seraphim… And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” (Isaiah 6:1-5 NIV)

Beloved, usually when I get down to worship, I feel the presence of the Lord so strongly that I can hardly contain myself. However, I expect to feel His presence like this when I’ve been very faithful. That is, when I’ve been regular in spending time before his Holy presence. But I don’t expect to feel His presence when I’ve been too busy and struggling to find time for Him. And so when He does show up at such times, I feel very guilty. Unusually, at such times, as I get down to business and I can immediately feel His presence so strongly, it really messes me up. I find myself saying “Lord, I really don’t deserve this. Why are You always so close and so quick to embrace me? It’s like You are just there waiting for me to come back”. It’s very humbling.

Well, in his book, ‘THE UNQUENCHABLE WORSHIPER: COMING BACK TO THE HEART OF WORSHIP’, Matt Redman whom I talked about yesterday titles this one… ‘the undone worshiper’. Referring to our feature text, he says “before the throne of God the prophet Isaiah becomes an undone worshiper… Isaiah is broken, stunned and shaken in the presence of God. But this brokenness is not a destructive thing; God is stripping him apart in order to put him back together as a stronger, purer worshiper.

What he is basically saying is that it’s not always every time that the presence of God leaves a gently and comforting feeling; you know those times when you are just in awe of Him. There are times when it leaves you broken. Matt says there was a time… “God’s presence invaded my heart in a new and powerful way. But it wasn’t one of those tender, reassuring times. All it did was make me want to repent. Rising to the surface of my heart came those little unspoken attitudes and thoughts which had passed unnoticed, and which I now saw had offended God”

Beloved, what Matt says makes perfect sense. There are times I feel the Lord’s strong presence but He comes to make me repent… to come back to THE HEART OF WORSHIP. Hopefully I’m not the only one. Like King David told the Lord… The sacrifice You desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God (Psalm 51:17 NLT).

Beloved, let this be our heart condition.

Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:40-42 NLT)

Beloved, here’s something I read in Matt Redman’s book titled ‘THE UNQUENCHABLE WORSHIPER: COMING BACK TO THE HEART OF WORSHIP’.

Matt Redman is a famous worship leader, singer, songwriter and author and he said there was a time he was extremely busy recording a new worship song album and juggling a few ministry trips when suddenly his arm that he used to play the guitar started to play up. “What’s happening Lord? We’ve got an album to finish – I can’t afford for this to happen now”.

Well, a week later, he found himself on the operating table and for the next seven weeks, he could hardly do anything so the questions started rolling in… “Why was this happening? Would my hands ever fully recover? Was it the devil? Or was it God?” However, after a period of confusion, he started to realise what God was up to. Matt said, “He started to speak to me: As a servant I was dispensable – servants come and go, and God can choose any of us to do any job in His kingdom. As a worship leader I was replaceable – God could have used anyone for the events that we’d been privileged to be a part of. BUT AS A CHILD OF GOD, I WAS INDISPENSABLE. There could never be another me – a child is irreplaceable”.

Matt was being taught a lesson on priorities. He was being taught a lesson about discovering what is important as God’s child. Matt went on to say “I’d spent so many years leading worship that I’d lost the plot a bit, and God was giving me a ‘pit stop’; a chance to have some long overdue work done on my heart’”.

Beloved, maybe I’m just weird like that but I tend to value the Lord’s correction because more than anything else, I want to be found faithful and there are times when we try to bargain with God but I’m not so sure He accepts that we are too busy for Him. Or what do you think?

King David told the Lord… The sacrifice You desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God (Psalm 51:17 NLT). Beloved, are you making room for God or are you too busy like Matt and Martha in our feature text? Do you need to tell the Lord that YOU ARE COMING BACK TO THE HEART OF WORSHIP WHERE IT’S ALL ABOUT HIM?

One day Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Take these people up to the Promised Land.’ But you haven’t told me whom you will send with me. You have told me, ‘I know you by name, and I look favorably on you.’ If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favour…” The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.” Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that you look favorably on me… and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart…” The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.” Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” (Exodus 33:12-18 NLT)

Beloved, I’m at that point where I have 1001 things to do in a very short space of time and so I’m struggling with time but the Lord has been making me meditate on the story of Moses who got to the point in his journey where he figured out what was really important. This is a case of you can go ahead and do the things you have to do or spend time pursuing what you need most for this next phase of your journey.

Instead of moving ahead, Moses said… I want Your presence. The New King James Version translation says… And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” By this time, the Lord had used Moses to do so many mighty acts but none of that was important to him. It was now about His presence because after the signs and wonders, you could still get to that point where you still feel empty, worn out and angry with the world in Moses’ case.

Moses said… let me know Your ways so I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor… and I believe he was saying “I want to understand You more so I can reap the full benefits of Your favour”

The Lord then talks about rest… I will give you rest; an area where many are struggling but I’m reminded of the Scripture that says…

Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones (Psalm 127:1-2 NLT).

The Amplified says… It is vain for you to rise early, to retire late, to eat the bread of anxious labors— For He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep.

Beloved, where’s your focus? We all want to be able to enjoy His presence… His glory… His favour… His rest… and we would only get to that place when there’s a change of focus.

Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him (John 4:20-23 NKJV).

Beloved, a few weeks ago, I went on a retreat with a few ladies and one of the sessions on our programme was ‘Worship in Spirit and in Truth’. Well, we all had our notes to teach on the topic but because ‘meeting by the well’ is very much a practical ministry, the Lord sure had something else in mind and by the time we were done, I had practical notes to go with my theory.

So, let the worship session begin…

Beloved, we ended up having a major argument which went along the lines of… ‘the way you Africans sing your songs versus the way we Jamaicans sing our songs’. The interesting thing is that it was the same worship song but sung in a slightly different way and one admitted that she struggled with the way you Africans sing your version and at some point, was contemplating just looking for a Jamaican ministry to join. The funny thing is that ‎she found it strange when ‘we Africans’ said we also struggled with your version (LOL). Why would you find it strange? What gives your version authority over mine? It was an interesting conversation which just shed some light on the conflict that the Samaritan woman found herself in.

Which one is it? “Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

Beloved, in the end, we all admitted we couldn’t feel the presence of God but once we were able to push past that, we were fine. ‎So, is culture a barrier to worshipping in spirit and in truth or were we just in the flesh?

When I did my Masters in Applied Theology, we did a study on Christ and culture: Five views by H. Richard Niebuhr.

1. Christ against culture
2. Christ of culture
3. Christ above culture
4. Christ and culture in paradox
5. Christ the transformer of culture

Beloved, which one do you think it is? Today being Sunday, as you worship the Lord, why not ask yourself this question; am I a true worshipper? Because the Lord is seeking such

18. December 2016 · Comments Off on HAVE YOU GOT AN IDOL IN YOUR LIFE? · Categories: Action, Change, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Worship

My little children, KEEP AWAY FROM IDOLS (1 John 5:21 Voice).

Beloved, have you got an idol in your life? How can we identify the idols in our lives? I remember someone saying than an idol is anything you have to ask permission from before you do God’s will or to obey Him. It is anything you have to ask permission from before God can have your attention. It is anything that would cause you to put God on hold just so you can attend to the thing.

According to my Bible notes… If we look carefully at our culture and into our own hearts, we will find we are ultimately concerned about ourselves, our entertainment, our comforts, and our wallets. None of these are worthy of our highest devotion; but we put more time, energy, money, and emotion into these than we do into the one true God. So, John’s warning should be heeded: watch out for the steady impulse to love other things more than God.

Beloved, if there’s anything in your life that makes you say “I don’t know if I can leave this”, that may be an idol. Taking it a step further, there are people who feel they are nobody until they have a husband or they have children and when it doesn’t work out as planned or in the time frame they thought it would, they end up becoming emotionally dependent on what they are longing for but that becomes a form of idolatry in the sense that you put all your hope in something that should give you love, or value, or give your life meaning. You start to worship the idea that if I had a husband, then I would be fulfilled; if I had a child, then I would be loved; if I had a perfect family, then I would be fulfilled. Unfortunately, these are all idols and God does not want us serving idols.

Jacobs wife, Leah is a perfect example… When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, He enabled her to have children, but Rachel could not conceive. So Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben, for she said, “The Lord has noticed my misery, and NOW MY HUSBAND WILL LOVE ME.” She soon became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She named him Simeon, for she said, “The Lord heard that I was unloved and has given me another son.” Then she became pregnant a third time and gave birth to another son. He was named Levi, for she said, “SURELY THIS TIME MY HUSBAND WILL FEEL AFFECTION FOR ME, since I have given him three sons!” (Genesis 29:31-34 NLT)

Beloved, her husband became her god but she still remained unfulfilled until …Once again Leah became pregnant and gave birth to another son. She named him Judah, for she said, “NOW I WILL PRAISE THE LORD!” And then she stopped having children (Genesis 29:35 NLT).

Beloved, have you got an idol in your life? Do you need to deal with anything in your life that has taken the position of God so you can start praising Him the way you ought to?
