21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #19

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

Good Evening Over-comers!

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on these powerful bible verses:

and went again into the Praetorium, and said to Jesus, “Where are You from?” But Jesus gave him no answer. Then Pilate said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You? John 19:9-10 NKJV

While meditating on these verses, many times in the past and even this morning, I questioned why Jesus didn’t answer Pilate, I mean, what he was saying was true, he was clearly offering Jesus a way out of the injustice that He was experiencing.

Then God revealed to me why Jesus didn’t speak: Jesus knew what He had to do, He had to obey God and make the sacrifice. 

Carrying the Cross

Jesus wasn’t in doubt about His mission, so even though Pilate was offering a way out, Jesus had to ignore him. Jesus didn’t entertain the idea of not going ahead with the sacrifice, in other words, finding an excuse not to sacrifice, because He knew what He had to do.

For someone who isn’t in spirit or who is in the flesh, they would think, “Jesus was rude, Pilate was only trying to help Him, He could avoided being murder!” But the reality is that, in that moment, Pilate was being used by the devil to give Jesus a way out of making His sacrifice.

It’s so subtle the way the devil tried because like I said, it seemed like Pilate is trying to help, but Jesus knew all along who was really speaking and ignore him. Remember what He did to Peter, when he tried to stop Him from sacrificing?

It reminds me of the times when we know we need to sacrifice, we need to do what will bring about a miracle in our lives, and the devil uses those subtle suggestions to bring doubts and stop us from sacrificing. He even uses people close to us, and unfortunately, many fall for it & end up not sacrificing and even using the excuse “God knows!” or “God knows I tried, but it must be His will for me not to do this!”

People who do this, in reality, are looking for an excuse not to sacrifice, because they don’t want to pay the price of sacrifice. So at the first sign of a convincing opportunity, they don’t go ahead and sacrifice.

I hope you understood.

Praise God that Jesus ignore or else we all wouldn’t be here, with the opportunity to receive the Holy Spirit.

21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #18

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on this powerful bible verse:

Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice. John 18:37 NKJV

What I understood while meditating on this verse was that, just like Jesus, when I received the Holy Spirit and experienced the new birth, it was so that I can bear witness of the truth, God the Father. In addition to that, it was because I desired to know the truth, from deep within.

God the Father and His word are the truth, and only those who are humble, who want to understand God, who want to know Him personally and who are sincere can hear His truth and accept it.

Holy Spirit

Think with me, what happened to you when you spoke the truth to someone who didn’t want it? Most probably, you ended up getting an earful of insults, dirty looks or even almost getting into a fight. It’s not them, it’s the reaction of the rebellious, proud and defeated evil spirits that hate the truth, that were expelled from heaven, that are living inside of them, unfortunately.

This is was the exact attitude of the religious Pharisees of the past, their actions over time showed to these demons that they didn’t want God, they didn’t want to improve, that they were stubborn and were going to do anything to resist having to improve.

Narrow Way

But for those of us who do want to improve, who do want to know who God the Father is & who do want to live a life that pleases Him, we will be able to hear His words easily and clearly.

The question is, what type of person are we? A person who wants to hear the truth, even if it hurts so that we can improve or a person who avoids hearing the truth because it will place in our conscience a requirement to improve, the reality that they we are not perfect and that we need to come out of their comfort zone to improve further?

Think about it. God Bless and Good Night

21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #17

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on this powerful bible verse:

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. John 17:17 MEV 

While meditating on the whole of the chapter, Jesus was making a prayer for His disciples and for all those who would later believe Him. This verse stood out because Jesus clearly makes me understand that if I obey and act upon on God’s Word, I will make myself pure, holy and clean.

If I neglect meditating daily on God’s word and above all acting based upon it, I am choosing to neglect my spiritual and mental well being; because my enemy the devil, without fail, is daily doing all he can to make me impure via many sly and even blatant ways.

Also, if I don’t have good knowledge of God’s word, I will be weak in the face of temptation and the devil.

Bible

God Bless

21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #16

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on this powerful bible verse:

They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God. They will do these things to you, because they have not known the Father nor Me. John 16:2-3 MEV

This week, I was with a believer, who I’m pretty sure has meditated on the Word of God, has been to many church services, probably evangelized souls and would claim themselves to be a ‘Christian’; yet, that person encouraged me to lie, it was a trivial lie, but a lie nonetheless.

My reaction was immediate, “I don’t lie!”, I answered, and their response was to look at me in a shocked and probably shamed way, because the person knows I’m a practicing Christian, to which they replied, “It’s not that deep, and you have lied before”!

While I meditated on this bible verse, it reminded me of this person, because this is the kind of person Jesus is talking about, this is the type of person that would band together with other so called ‘Christians’ and put pressure on, even persecute the practicing Christians about them being ‘super holy’ and taking things ‘too serious’; like what Jesus experienced Himself.

Pharisees

In my honest opinion, these people are demon possessed, possessed believers like the Pharisees in the bible, and in those moments when they see a practicing Christian, it’s the demons inside of them reacting, not them. These demons love those religious people who know the Word of God but don’t practice it in its entirety. These people think they know God because they have a vast amount of knowledge, but that ain’t enough, they have a dead faith, which leave them open to demons to slip in and subtly rule over their mind and life.

The Holy Spirit is only attracted; will come to live inside of and work through those who with a sincere and uncompromising mind seek to obey the Word of God; and not these religious people, because their temple is already preoccupied, their minds being controlled and being used in a counter-productive way by the devil.

Let’s pray for these people and guide them to the truth. They should purchase and read this powerful and eye opening book: Possessed Believers

I pray you hear and do the Word of God, in Jesus name.

21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #15

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on this powerful bible verse:

If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, even as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. John 15:10 MEV

Many times in the past, I based whether God is with me or not on how I felt. Even when I knew I wasn’t living in sin anymore, I was so comfortable listening to my emotions and regarding it as the right tool to measure my spirituality.

However, when I meditate on this verse, it reminds me of the truth, that Jesus works through reason and not feeling. As He clearly states, If I keep His commands, I will remain in Him, under His protection and guidance.

It doesn’t matter if I feel anything, because He never said that when I obey Him, I would feel His presence or feel His approval. This is where faith really comes into play, because when I obey His commands and believe that He will be faithful to stick to what He said He would do, whether I feel like it or not, I am showing Him that I truly believe His words.

Mind Use It

And eventually, in His own marvelous and clear way, He will prove He is indeed with me, with Him not needing to appeal to my emotions. I mean, why would God use my heart, when He Himself states it deceitful and desperately wicked above all things? This show a lack of faith and intelligence.

God is with me when I obey Him, Full Stop!

Whether I feel like it or not, Full Stop!

21 Days Of The Fast Of Daniel – My Day #14

21 Days of the Fast of Daniel

If you are wondering what the 21 days of fast the of Daniel is all about, click on the following link and it shall explain: UCKG Fast of Daniel. Every day, I will be meditating on my bible more and whatever God speaks to me I shall share it here on my blog.

Meditate with me on these powerful bible verses:

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.” John 14:6-7 MEV

While meditating on these verses, the rawness of what Jesus said hits me, because it make me think of the many in the world who have the desire to know God, yet they try and find Him through religion, and not by a living faith in Jesus and His Word.

To believe & obey Jesus, plus denying our flesh’s desires to do things it’s own way take a lot of reasoning and strength; because in the midst of the world that we live in, there are many religions and things attracting us to compromise and go through a broader gate, instead of the narrow gate presented to us by Jesus.

No matter what, Jesus will always remain the ONE way, the complete TRUTH & the LIFE; and it’s only by us obeying Him unconditionally, seeking to receive the Holy Spirit, living committed to following His example, that we will know God the Father, personally like He does.

Any other way, words or feelings are nothing but counterfeits.

Meditate with me on these powerful bible verses:

If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. John 13:14-15 MEV

This is the mentality and character of the Lord Jesus, that all believers must imitate. The Lord’s words should abide in us. He wants us to serve our brethren and do unto other as we would like for ourselves.

Yet, unfortunately, there are many so called ‘Christians’ or ‘Believers’ that instead of following the example of Jesus, they follow the desires of their selfish heart. Claiming to be disciples or born again but still very selfish & worldly in their mentality and character.

For me, the key thing I got from this is that Jesus, our leader, lead by example. A real leader is not the one who sits back and has people serving him and dishing out orders, but is the one that serves the needs of the people around him and organises his followers to success.

The-Leader

Good Night and God Bless
