1. What should cause souls to always rejoice; to always remain in the cycle of Joy, has fast become unpopular and replaced by all sorts today. To raise kids to a place where they are truly godly, is a thing of Joy! To be able to see sin grow weaker by the day, or have the hope of eternal life replace the hope of this world, is a thing of great Joy! To be able to learn and sight things pertaining to God’s will, and hear His Son’s voice by the hour, is an unspeakable Joy! So the excitement that the world offers, is not a substitute for the joy of the Lord (2 Cor. 1:12/Phil. 4:4)
2. Submitting one to another and being subject to various levels of authority that the Lord has set within and without the body of Christ, can be very unnatural and can easily escape our radar – even when we have received enlightenment on it. By it, faithful women of old wrestled with women rights, had their hearts adorned with a meek and quiet spirit, and this remains a key prescription for weeding out/overcoming hidden natures or priestly infirmities like guile, envy, malice, hypocrisies and evil speakings till date. (Eph.5:21/1Pet.3:1-5/2:1/13/18/5:5)
3. Daniel loved the ruins of the wall of Jerusalem more than the comfort of the palace. Moses esteemed the reproaches of Christ greater riches more than the treasures of Egypt. John the Baptist esteemed the clothing of camel’s skin rather that the soft raiment and delicate lifestyle of kings. Jesus chose to become poor, that we might become as rich as He was before taking on the form of a servant. Every true destiny that will affect posterity comes at a price which is far less than the prize, and God is committed to immortalizing their names.
4. An imprisoned man has no freedom to learn or meet whomsoever he wants to. A man who is not free from sin is not free to learn or meet with God. Jesus came to make us free from sin, to introduce us to the same faith-walk He used to overcome (come-over sin), so we can walk out of that prison house/nature, and then experiencially know or fellowship with our heavenly father and also bring His will into our flesh/earth. Coming into the fellowship of the Father can only take place after freedom from sin; after Christ has indwelt our hearts by His Faith. (Jn. 8:32/Eph. 3:17/1Jn.1:1-3)
5. God is mighty, and despises not any (Job 36:5). Meaning, it takes might to be meek enough not to despise any or err in judgment. It takes might to honor all men, to love the brotherhood, to condensed to men of low estate, to listen carefully to children and to seemingly weaker looking vessels like wives and faithful servants; and this might comes after the empowerment that the walk of faith offers (Isa. 40:29/Col. 1:9-11)
6. The first person or personality in us, who receives any classified information from the throne concerning the destiny/inheritance of our souls in God, is our recreated spirit. So to be separated from heaven and from God’s will is as simple as being separated from the hourly dictates of our spiritman; from the witness(es) of the Spirit of God to our spirit – who should be our closest ally. (Rom. 8:16/1Cor. 2:9-11)
7. There are different kinds of seed (word/promise) in the bible. There was once an earthy SEED that Adam in Eden handled. Then came earthly or carnal SEEDS (promises) after the Fall. But the sower (Jesus) in the New Testament came with only one SEED – only one word or promise – that had/has the answer to corruption; the incorruptible seed, which actually is The word of God that can raise a grassy soul into becoming a stone or change the DNA of a soul and cause it to live (i.e. bear Christ by faith or live above this world) and ultimately abide in God (i.e. become an abode for God). 1 Cor. 15:47/Deu. 28/Lk. 8:5/1Pet. 1:23-25)
8. Preaching the gospel entails preaching what angels desire to look into, preaching the seed/kind of word that would enable our souls be born again or attain resurrection or what would enable us recieve the end of Faith (Christ) which is the salvation of our souls. So there are milk-faith ministrations that can only introduce us to the actual gospel; that can address our outward/carnal or earthly needs, which when pure, should prepare our hearts for the actual gospel of Christ or for the faith of the Son of God or for the life of eternal life. The teaching and preaching of Christ should end up presenting everyman perfect in Christ – and this has hardly started in many churches (1Pet. 1:12/Rom. 16:25-26/Col. 1:26-28)
9. Great shall be the reward of every faithful help who would co-labour with the call of God upon their husbands to come into good(ness); to become a priest of the Lord and ultimately a priest of God (high priest). Many of such would remain unknown, perhaps unheard and unsung, but their secret labours that led them to laying down their lives for the purpose of God to be realised upon their spouses would someday cause the Father to reward them openly; even with a new name before glorious angels.
10. Have you ever heard believers/ministers say or sing, “Jesus suffered so we won’t suffer?” Have you ever, in meekness, drawn their attention to various post-Jesus days, early church accounts of sufferings/trials, which became the tools for their purification for the promise? Have you asked them why such saints were asked to follow those who through their trials of faith and patience, inherited the promise? To deny the place of suffering outside wrongdoing is to deny the faith arrangements through which the Holy Spirit leads us against the life we inherited from Adam. To deny the place of suffering is to stop the technology of the Spirit which alone can take sin out of our flesh (1Pet. 4:1/12-16/19)
