HOW TO OVERCOME

Published

HOW TO OVERCOME

The journey to Heaven is longer than we ever think. Once we are saved, we usually think its just a few years of serving God and we'll soon be in heaven with Him but there are numerous temptations, tests and trials before we get there and many times we feel discouraged and like we'll never make it to Heaven.

Being around worldly people in places like School, work etc even makes overcoming harder as you have to overcome all their pressure of trying to make you backslide and be one of them and their attempts of trying to make you feel ashamed of being Holy.

You can be trying to do good in your Christian life but find that you are easily overcome by temptations and this makes you feel discouraged and like you will never make it to Heaven.

The spiritual secret to overcoming is subduing the flesh.

Galatians 5:17 says that the spirit lusts against the flesh and the flesh against the spirit and these are contrary to one another so that you do not do the things you wish to do.

The bible shows us through scripture that the flesh is subdued through fasting.

When you are in frequent fasts, it is easy to overcome the desires of the flesh because your mind is on heavenly things and you are always aware of the presence of God.

However when you are not fasting, it is easy to please the desires of the flesh because all your thoughts are on earthly things.

The bible also says that the flesh serves the law of sin, according to (Romans 7:25).

This plainly tells us that the flesh serves the law of sin, desiring to do the things you would not want to do. Therefore, it must be subdued in order to do the will of God.

Fasting subdues the flesh and the bible tells us that the flesh and its passions and desires need to be CRUCIFIED (Galatians 5:24)

Paul in Romans 8:12-13 further tells us that "If you live after the flesh, you shall die. "

Literally, meaning that if you live a life that has no fasting, the result will be that you will live after the flesh and hence, you will be overcome by the desires of the flesh.

The more you eat, the more you find worldly things fascinating and harder to overcome.

Paul also says, in 1 Corinthians 9:27 that, "I bring my body under subjection lest after I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway" Meaning that if he does not keep his body under subjection, which is achieved by fasting, he will be a castaway because he would have obeyed the desires of the flesh.

Even Jesus Himself told us in Matthew 4:4 that, man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."

This tells us that as Christians, we need to have a life of prayer and fasting and not just eating physical food. It needs to be a lifestyle and not just a once in a great while thing.

Fasting was even the lifestyle of Jesus and that is why He was able to cast out the demons that His disciples failed to cast out in Matthew 17:14-21. He told them, "This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting " He did not say, since these kind of demons only go out through prayer and fasting, let me fast and then bring back your son after some days and I'll be able to pray for him but He immediately cast out the demons and they obeyed. This means He lived a life of fasting and he said that His disciples would soon join that lifestyle of fasting after He is gone since they could not mourn while the bridegroom was still with them.

Afterwards, we see many examples in the book of Acts and other books which show that the disciples and Apostles lived a life of fasting.

Paul even tells us that he is in fastings OFTEN in 2 Corinthians 11:27. This means that frequent fasting was his lifestyle.

May the Lord help us live this kind of life that we may overcome and subdue the flesh and its desires.

Hi friends, I'd like to share a short testimony that has happened today and has shocked me,which has brought to me

Hi friends, I'd like to share a short testimony that has happened today and has shocked me,which has brought to me the reality of Romans 8:28 which says, "And we know that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE."

We have our own plans, but God also has His plans for our lives and the Bible says His plans for us are to make us prosper and not to harm us Jeremiah 29:11.

When I graduated from University, my dream was to work at a well known media house and therefore made various applications.

However, I did not get a response from the media house that I wanted the most and I felt hurt because I thought that is what was the best for me. Instead I got accepted at another media house which is also famous,but not as much as the one I wanted.

I wondered why after praying and fasting without ceasing, I could not get the job I really wanted and felt was the best for me.

Today shockingly,that media house which I so badly wanted to go to at first has been shut down with immediate effect by the Ministry of Information and broadcasting and their license revoked for allegedly violating terms of agreement.

Now I can not help but be in amazement that had I been there,this day I would have been rendered jobless.

Even though at first I may have felt that injustice was being done to me for not getting the job I thought was the best for me after praying,I realise that God is so good and I thank Him for not giving me that Job.

He did not give it to me because He knew that the future of that television station was doomed for closure. Tears fill my eyes as I reflect on this and I am overwhelmed by God's love for me as His child. God is always protective of His children and He always knows what is best for us.

This is for someone out there who may feel like some injustice is being done to them in some way. Remember that God is good all the time and His thoughts are not our thoughts Isaiah 55: 8-9.

What may seem like God harming us may actually be Him protecting us.

I really feel bad for those when have been rendered jobless from that institution and may the Lord open other doors for them.

DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD

DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD

Good evening friends,I'd like to share with you a vision the Lord gave me yesterday, which made me realise just how filthy the things of the world really are.

For people accustomed to doing worldly things,they may seem innocent and normal but in this vision,God made me see the things of the world the way He really sees them.

In this vision,I saw a transparent plastic water bucket which had a tap attached to it and a small basin under it.

I could see the water in this bucket as it was transparent and the water looked clean and even drinkable.

However to my surprise when the tap was opened, what came out from the tap was not water as expected but human diarrhoea instead! It was filling the basin quickly and spluttering all over the place.

I was disgusted and shocked.

Then I heard the Voice of the Lord say to me, "These are the things of the world"

So to the non spiritual eye there is nothing wrong with the things of the world but God in reality sees those things as filth.

Luke 16:15 part 2 says, "What is HIGHLY ESTEEMED AMONG MEN is an ABOMINATION in the sight of God.

1 John 2:15-17 also says,
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

For those who may wonder what these things of the world are,here are a few scriptural references

1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
Revelations 21:8
Galatians Chapter 5

The bible is not exhaustive of things regarded as things of the world because new things keep coming up.

For example, secular TV and secular music(Non Christian Tv movies cartoons music etc) have been revealed by God to be unholy because they defile a Christian, but those things are not actually written down in the bible.

That is why the baptism of the Holy Spirit is needed in order for one to be individually guided by God in the right path as Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth in John 16:13. It is also only with the help of the Holy Spirit that we receive a genuine change of heart and repentance.

To receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit one has to ask in prayer.

James 4:4 also says, "Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOEVER THEREFORE WANTS TO BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD MAKES HIMSELF AN ENEMY OF GOD.

We all know that there is no place in Heaven for enemies of God, but only wrath awaiting them in Hell.

However it is not God's will for us to perish and that is why He is telling us this today for our own salvation

URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LORD:STOCK UP YOUR FOOD RESERVES!

Published

URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LORD:STOCK UP YOUR FOOD RESERVES!

The Lord says everyone needs to stock up food because troubling times are coming upon the earth where you won't have access to food.
This is a message the Lord gave my sister in Christ in a prophetic dream in September last year when we were fasting.
I had already shared her dream here on Facebook,but am sharing this because its important.
In her dream things looked normal but in a moment there was destruction everywhere.
Cities had been cut off from each other.
There where huge holes on the roads, they looked like huge craters.
In the dream,she knew what was happening in her city was happening everywhere else.
As she was shocked at what was happening,
Then she heard the voice of God in a loud voice saying,"PREPARE FOR THE TIME THAT IS COMING. STORE UP FOOD.TELL EVERYONE TO PREPARE AND STORE FOOD.
PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE!!!"
The Lord said three times that we must prepare.
When God says something three times, it means it has been established to happen.
This post is not to bring fear to anyone, but its in order for you not to be caught unaware.
We must prepare spiritually by staying in prayer,fasting, and being vigilante.
But the Lord is also asking us to prepare physically by storing up food we can eat when that time comes.
Food even our children can eat.
Some people could dismiss this saying God will provide for them,but that same God is providing for you by warning you in advance.
If Noah didn't obey what God told him to build an ark,thinking God will supernaturally protect him from the flood,he would have perished.
But he had to take action by acting on what God told him.
We need to obey the Lord's instructions because then we will be safe.
We must do what the Lord says,then trust Him to keep us safe.
As we prepare physical food,we must also repent of our sins and ask for mercy for us,our families and the whole world.
Store non perishable food that can last for some time.
Start this month and keep adding to it every month,don't use the food,keep it for the time the Lord is talking about.
