The Bread of Life

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. John 6:47-48 NKJV

We need to believe. We need to trust; in fact, we need to show our trust.

When we are going through a tribulation, of course we will FEEL weak, emotional and at times worried, but it doesn’t mean the we should obey our feelings, the suggestion of the flesh/weaknesses, and please the devil. We need to depend on our FAITH in God’s words, which has everything to do with being rational.

If we allow our feelings to takeover our intelligence, we will end up losing.

God is TRUE; therefore we need to depend on His words above all. The word ‘Believe’ is more deep than most think. Belief is a verb!

For example, I prove that I believe in HSBC bank protecting my money, because if I didn’t believe in them, I wouldn’t have given them all my personal details and money. I can’t say I believe in something but I’m not actively showing my belief through actions.

Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world. John 6:49-51 NKJV

We are all sure about one thing, we will one day die; but not everyone is sure where they will go after. Not all Christians will go to heaven, not all Pastors will go to heaven and not all believers will go to heaven.

When we believe in Jesus, which is to obey Him, we will have true life here on earth, one day die and then go to heaven to rest for all eternity.

Learn To Say NO – Love Life Tip

But let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these comes from the evil one. Matthew 5:37 MEV

Many people find it hard to say NO, and when a person doesn’t say NO due to them being afraid of displeasing others, they end up carrying the heavy load of regret and bad experiences from that decision. When a person says YES to any person and starts dating or doing things with them, they are saying NO to their true happiness in their love life.

Since when did settling for less really bring anyone happiness?

We must have a FIRM belief in what we want & the standards for our love life. This applies in all things, stand up and say NO when you see your standards are not being met by yourself and others. We must decide to react and say NO to all problems, issues, injustices etc… when they are trying to make us give up.

It’s paramount that we have a CLEAR vision for what we want in our love life; because when we have a CLEAR vision on what we want, we will keep our eyes and focus on that goal. The saying “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!” comes to mind. We can’t let the devil’s plan and distractions divert our attention from our standards and goals.

IF WE VALUE OURSELVES; WHY WOULD WE GIVE OURSELVES TO SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT VALUE US THE WAY WE EXPECT?

LEARN TO SAY NO! The only person we should never say NO to is God. Yes or Yes =)

1 Reason Why People Disrespect God

You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach not to steal, do you steal? You who say not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God through breaking the law? As it is written, “The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you. Romans 2:21-24 MEV

I was meditating on this and thought to myself, How many people who claim to be a ‘Christian’ are living a lie, not living by faith and misrepresenting God? There are too many! Many of them don’t realise (although some do) that they are 1 of the reasons that people don’t want to believe in God.

Unbelievers look at the bad example of the person, they look at their life and think to themselves:

“Is this the life your God has on offer for those who believe in Him?”

“How is it that your God claims to heal and yet you are still sick?”

“Why is it that you’re facing this injustice and you’re sitting there waiting on your God to provide?”

“Your God doesn’t seem unreliable!”

And the list of comments continues. What a shame to be consider a person that makes people DOUBT the God of the bible. As a true Christian, the person cannot allow God to be blasphemed, misrepresented or doubted by the unbelievers.

And how do we do this?

By living everyday in faith, obeying the directions from God and demanding the Lord Jesus to show Himself in full power through our life.

I pray that the Holy Spirit has opened your mind and you have accepted this truth!

Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 2

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

Intelligent = Taking into account what God has said and promised in the Bible, then believing in it above ALL other words, knowledge and situations in the world. Using your brain and not your heart. Your reason and not emotions.

Faith = A personal relationship consisting of acts of sacrifice, commitment and submission to Him DAILY; which in turn will provide an innate assurance/conviction(not a feeling), which comes from God exclusively, that He exists and rewards those who prove they love Him by obeying His directions. Believing without seeing.

cropped-courage-over-fear_13031172_s.jpg

Our God-given common sense(although I call it rare sense nowadays) helps us to take a step back from our problems & life to assess it the situation, look at the God we claim to have a relationship with, look at what His Words claim He IS and CAN do, and then react with intelligent faith against the devil and his demons that are trying to rob us of the Promises and Life He spoke of.

For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 MEV

Also to react with an intelligent faith to demand and claim from God what He promised to those who have a relationship with Him. It’s to assess our lives based on what the Bible says, whether we fully understand it or not.

…test Me now in this… Malachi 3:10 MEV

Sacrifice is the PRICE to get the benefits of Intelligent Faith.

One final thing

It’s important that we seek to understand the original meaning of certain key words used in the bible, i.e. Love, Sacrifice or Believe. These key word’s original meanings, holds more weight than it’s current meaning.

The truth is that it’s meaning has been diluted over time and many people (including myself) have been lead to think they are obeying God properly, when we haven’t, simply due to a lack of understanding.

The following bible verse comes to mind:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest… Hosea 4:6 MEV

God is with you, believe that!

My Conduct/Actions Is Much More Effective

Actions

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. I Peter 3:1-2 NKJV

This verse applies to everyone!

To speak about God, anyone can do, even the devil and his servants; but to be a true example in our conduct and behavior, not everyone can do it. It’s way more effective, actions speak louder than any words.

If I want my family and friends to be saved, I must be saved first; then through my conduct and behaviour, show Jesus. Real strength is to be obedient & do the right thing always.

Now examine yourself. God Bless!

Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 1

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

In Theory: 

While meditating on His Words (the Bible) making a sincere effort to UNDERSTANDING who He is and what He can do, above all other knowledge. 

For example: 

He cannot LIE – Numbers 23:19 & Hebrews 6:18

He forgives and forgets our sins – Isaiah 43:25 & Hebrew 8:12 

He is a healer – Exodus 15:26 & 1 Peter 2:24

He delivers us from demons and their works – Psalms 34:27 & Mark 1:24-26 

He provides an abundant life – Jeremiah 29:11 & John 10:10

Bible

In Practice:

After understanding who He is and what He can do, BELIEVING through ACTIONS, above all other prior knowledge, who God IS and can do. 

For Example:

Obey His words/directions – Joshua 6 & Luke 5:4-6

Confessing your sins to Him – Proverb 28:13 & 1 John 1:19

Giving an offering – Malachi 3:8-12 & Luke 6:38 

Working smart to receive a life more abundant – Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 & 2 Corinthians 9:6

Rebuking the devil – Luke 10:18-19 & James 4:7

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

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:

So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” John 21:15 NKJV

Jesus already knew that Peter loved Him, yet I believe He asked him so that he could hear himself confess his love for Jesus, since before, when Jesus was taken away, he confessed that he didn’t know Jesus.

And Jesus showed to me that the way I show to Him I love Him, is by saving & serving souls. Therefore it is my duty, if I claim to love Him to fight to souls and serve them as I would love to be served.

This pleases the Lord Jesus.

pride

I hope you have been blessed just as much as I have been during these 21 days that I have been posting.

God Bless!
