Redemption and Deliverance

Redemption and Deliverance

The Prophet Isaiah brought a strong message of Redemption and Deliverance to Israel at a time they needed it the most.

The Word of God still speaks to His Church; His people today. Isaiah 40:31 encourages us not to depend on our own strength, but fully rely on the power of God’s might. He is a God who never gets tired or weary, He is the great defender.

Eagles are used here as a beautiful illustration, because they are distinct amongst God’s creation. They have sharp vision and see predators at a distance, Eagles protect their young. Eagles stay clear of the raging storms, they rise above it. Those who trust in the Living God are just like this Eagle, they soar above the winds, they run and never grow weary, they walk and do not faint.

SARAI BECAME SARAH: A WOMAN OF FAITH.

Sarai became Sarah: A woman of Faith.

“So Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I am worn out, and my lord is old, shall I have pleasure? (Genesis 18:12-14).

Sarah is just like many of the precious daughters of God’s Kingdom today. They have fears, shortcomings and exhibit little faith, in the face of the promises of God.

We can see God clearly as the God of grace as He fulfils His promise to Sarah, despite her unbelief.

God dealt with the unbelief in Sarah’s heart in His own special way. God knows His daughters by name. At some point, Sarah’s faith was renewed because Paul’s letter to the Hebrews compliments Sarah by saying,

“By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.

You can learn a lot about God’s grace and faithfulness from Sarah’s story. Lack of faith can occur in the life of a child of God. However, God is able to deal with that little faith in His own way and in His own time. O you of little faith, have faith today!

POSSESSING THE PROMISE

Possessing the Promise

Abraham waited in faith for the promise of God. He waited patiently in a land promised by God as an inheritance to his generation forever. Though he did not obtain Canaan, as a possession, in his life time, he looked on in faith to that greater city, “which has foundations whose builder and maker is God.”

In our time of waiting, we must stand in faith and believe God’s Word. In the eyes of Abraham, God’s Promise was delayed, though he waited years on end, he did not stop believing.

Our faith will be tested while we wait. Abraham had a greater expectation: Heaven! He knew he would surely inherit Heaven, a blessed assurance that superseded any earthly Promise. Heaven will be worth the wait.

Heaven is your Home

Abraham lived by Faith.

By the direction of God, Abram set out from his idolatrous homeland (Genesis 12:1-4) to an unknown destination. He was obedient and travelled by faith. He embraced the promises of God by faith.

From Ur to Canaan

Leaving the place of sin and unbelief, Abram, now Abraham, gave up his past to embrace the future. Isaac and Jacob lived with Abraham in tents, as aliens and strangers. They lived in a land promised them, yet they never possessed it as their own, apart from where Sarah was buried. They were heirs to an earthly Promise never possessed in their life time. They all died with their eyes fixed on that Heavenly city which every Believer in Christ should look to.

Heaven is Your Home.

If you belong to Jesus, this world is not your home. Lift up your eyes to higher ground, there is a better place to come. Trust in the Living God, endure with perseverance and be steadfast. Christ within you is the hope of glory. Grace and Peace to you.

Faith in God

FAITH IN GOD

Abraham simply trusted God. Without knowing where He was going, He followed the lead of the Holy Spirit, not having specific instructions, not knowing what country He would be led to… He simply trusted God and followed.

This world does not belong to you child of God. You are a Pilgrim, a Sojourner, just passing through. You hold earthly goods loosely because you have a much better Heavenly Inheritance waiting for you.

Let us obey God by faith. His promises are solid and secure. Know that God is in complete control of your future. This should bring you peace of mind. Trust in the Lord like Abraham, have faith in the promises of God.

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. James 2:17

To whom much is given, even much more is expected. Are you among those who do not recognise that the privileges you have are for God’s glory?

Privileges can be wasted, misused and abused when you are not spiritually minded. The carnal Christian is one who is constantly occupied with self.

Faith with no corresponding action, is not living faith, it is dead faith. It is like a tree which does not bear fruit, (described in Matthew 7:19), as a tree only fit to be cut down and thrown into the fire.

The Bible uses figurative speech when it talks about the tree that bears no fruit. In the natural, the person without the evidence of fruit is like this tree…

What does Christ say about this person? (Matthew 7:19).

Let us therefore come boldly before God’s throne of grace: pray for the mind of Christ. Pray that Christ will be a living reality in your life; He is the hope of glory. Christ has given us eternal life freely, He has paid the price, He has given us His all.

GOD IS NOT LOOKING FOR PERFECT PEOPLE‼️

God is not looking for perfect people: He is a perfect God.

We are an imperfect people saved by grace. God is not looking for perfection, He is looking for those through whom He can display His glory. God is not interested in sharing His glory with another. He will not share His glory. He will not force His will on any man, neither will He compete with any man and we must understand this. He will not compete with any man within His Church or any ministry that belongs to Him. He will not compete with His name, His name belongs to Him. He is the giver of all things, including His Church for His own Sheep.

So many men and women of God are in competition with Jesus. They will never let Him have His way, they won’t let Him in, so He leaves them to their own devices, to fall by the work of their own hands.

Nobody can compete with the Holy Spirit, no human being can stop Him from operating within His Church. The Spirit of God is sensitive. A dove will fly away from where it knows it is not welcome. Where the Holy Spirit is not allowed to operate, He will simply leave. The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof…

A Good Samaritan: Allen Onyema

A Good Samaritan: Allen Onyema

September 2019 will be a month Africa will never forget. It was the month that Africans were evacuated from a country where Apartheid once reigned. The whole world, at one time, fought, gave money, spoke out, marched and some even gave their lives, for the freedom of a people who were once enslaved by a brutal regime.

South Africa, and the whole world watched, as business owners and entrepreneurs had their lives cut short and their source of living destroyed by angry South African mobs who accused these business owners of stealing their jobs and opportunities. On research, much of the aggression, in reality, had nothing to do with lack of jobs. It was about greed, hatred and jealousy.

One man, on seeing human lives degraded to that of animals decided to take action. Men, women and children were living in fear of their lives. He saw human beings humiliated and stripped of their dignity and all their earthy belongings. This man made a decision to rise up to the needs of others. Allen Onyema, the CEO of Air Peace, used his own Airline, free of charge or personal gain, to help others and remove them from the burning flames of injustice.

How many people turn away their eyes, and close their mouths, when they see injustice taking place? This incidence in South Africa reminds us of the Parable of “The Good Samaritan.” It can be found in (Luke 10:25-37) in the Holy Bible. In this story of the Good Samaritan: a Priest, a Levite and a Samaritan were on a journey and passed by a man who had been stripped, beaten and almost killed by robbers on the road.

-The Priest passed by the dying man and was unwilling to help him. One would think that as a Priest he would demonstrate love, compassion and care about the soul of the dying man, teach him the Holy Scriptures and help him. A Priest is someone who leads men and women in the correct way. This Priest did no such thing, the Parable says he crossed the road and continued his journey.

-A Levite (who is a Leader) also saw the dying man and crossed the road. He did not want to be associated with the poor dying man because he was a big man in society. He thought people would think less of him if he associated with the poor. He also crossed the road, refused to help and continued on his journey.

-Then a Samaritan passed by the dying man. The Samaritans were people who were not regarded as anybody in society. People looked down on Samaritans because of their tribe. This Samaritan man felt sorry for the the dying man and helped him. The Samaritan took the dying man, wiped his wounds and poured oil on him. On top of this, the Samaritan took the dying man to where he could get treatment. In the story, the Samaritan brought out money from his pocket for the treatment of the dying man and also said any money that needed to be paid for the treatment, he would pay when he returned from his journey.

What can we learn from this story?

We must show love to others, care for others, show compassion, be kind, be a good example and help others when they are in need. This is the godly character expected of people going to Heaven, especially from our Pastors and Leaders. Let us not turn our backs and walk to the other side of the road when we see somebody needs help. Let us not ignore the cries of the poor, needy and helpless. You do not need to be rich. Ordinary people can be effective in giving love and help to their neighbours, like the Good Samaritan in the Parable. The Good Samaritan was not a Pastor or Leader. Let us help strangers and challenge injustice, remember God is watching us all and He will judge us according to our actions, whether good or bad.
