REAL STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO GET CLOSER TO JESUS

REAL STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO GET CLOSER TO JESUS

Many people ask me how they can get closer to Jesus.
The Holy Spirit can show you ways to get closer but these are a few things I was doing the very first time I got close to Jesus!
This was when I was just from the world and got born again, at the very beginning.

1.The first step was a deep hunger I had to get closer to Jesus. Without the hunger, you will feel lazy to pray. So whenever am praying, I would tell The Lord,"help me to lose consciousness of time and everything else,let me just be lost in Your presence. "
I then noticed that my prayers became really long,not on purpose, but just naturally because I would be so lost in prayer I would think I had only prayed for a short time and yet hours had passed.
This came with me surrendering my time to Jesus.
I would just suspend everything else I had for the day, and not care if I had to do those other things late because of prayer.I managed to do this because I wasn't working at this time,but if you are working you can still spend enough time with Jesus when you are off,and in the night.
2.MIDNIGHT PRAYER
I started waking up to pray everyday at midnight, no matter how tired I was,I would still fulfill my commitment. I was doing this with my sister and brother.
There were times our evening prayer would be prolonged such that we went to bed 30 minutes before midnight. Even then,we would still wakeup at midnight and pray again.
And all of my prayers, wether midnight or during the day,I'd just lose myself and pray till am really really done,just pouring my heart to God and receiving His love.
3.OBEDIENCE
In order to get close to Him,Jesus really really taught my sister and I how important obedience is to Him!
And He greatly tested us in obedience.
As long as Jesus told me to do something, it wasn't optional for me,I had to do it,I couldn't disobey no matter how embarrassing or how difficult.
And the Lord greatly tested Zipporah and I to see how obedient we could be to Him.
Jesus asked my sister and I to do some difficult things,to see if we would obey.
He tested us so many times.
For example, our spiritual eyes had just opened and whenever we prayed, demons would fiercely attack us trying to intimidate us from praying.
But Jesus said, "Turn off the light,keep your eyes closed,and don't open them no matter how much the demons attack you.Pray in the dark.I want you to trust that I can protect you."
Then other times,just when we are getting ready for bed after a long day of prayer and fasting, The Lord would say,"I want you to kneel down and pray with hands lifted up.Don't stop praying till I tell you to.And do not stand up or sit,just kneel,and don't put your hands down till I tell you to."
And many times, The Lord would only tell us to stop at 5 in the morning! And we had to obey Him no matter what.
There were times my arms would feel so heavy I wanted to put them down,but I couldn't because I had to obey.
He told us,"Am doing this to teach you obedience, and to teach you how to pray because there are terrible times coming upon the earth, I want you to learn to pray."
Obedience is really really important to the Lord.
You can't get close to Him if you still want to be disobedient.
No matter how hard,if The Lord said it we had to obey!
But I must add that though He made us do these difficult things, He was always there,helping us obey.
Like onetime I got so tired lifting up my hands in prayer all night,I told the Lord, "am so tired," and He said He would give me strength, and immediately I felt so revived and I was able to endure.
He's faithful, you just have to be willing and He will help you.
The longest the Lord made us pray was 18 hours straight.
I had already shared about this one.
I was outside our house with Zipporah and Jesus said,"I want you to pray right now" and The Lord just gave us one prayer point.
So we thought it would be a short prayer and then we could go and have breakfast.
But when we were done with that prayer point, He told us,pray about this as well,and this.
In the end, we had prayed for a really long time,and Jesus finally told us,"start praying for everyone you know, pray for their salvation. Pray for the whole world and don't stop till I tell you,and do not go back in the house till I tell you."
We ended up praying for hours.At one point I was worn out,I felt Jesus'hand at my back,He touched me softly at my back, then said to me,"pray a little more."
Suddenly I had new strength to pray.
My dad came home and found us just praying from outside, he asked why we wouldn't go in,we just told him that we would go in later.
But Jesus didn't tell us to stop and go inside the house and it was late in the night,my mom and dad were now wondering what was happening to us coz we hadn't explained everything to them, we just kept telling them we would go in.
Jesus wanted us to be obedient to Him no matter what.
We were weary,hungry,thirsty,and just tired and just wanted to go in the house and refresh,but that would be disobeying Jesus coz He said, "don't go in till I tell you."
We tried talking Jesus into letting us go in.
I told Him,"Jesus,pleeeeasee!we are so hungry and thirsty, can we go in?Jesus looked at Me and shook His head,"No"
It was midnight and we were still outside the house! I was getting desperate to get in.
I said to Jesus,"Jesus,am so tired, can we go in now?!" Jesus said, "No"
I was desperate, worn out and I told Him,"Jesus,why?why are you doing this to us?"
He said,"to teach you obedience."
I said,"Lord,but You never did this to this and this person (mentioning names of people whom I knew had been greatly used by The Lord).
But The Lord just answered me,"You are not that person (mentioning the names I had mentioned to Him)!
And I said,"but why are you only doing this to us? I have never heard of any prophet you did this to,ever!"
Jesus said, "have you read the things I made The prophet Ezekiel do?"
The Lord had made us start praying at 9 am,before I had taken a bath,before I had my breakfast, and I wasn't even feeling well this day,and this was now past midnight!
And I said,"Lord, I just can't take this anymore!If you are going to keep us here then am taking a walk alone in the road and I don't care if am attacked or whatever happens to me!"I was saying anything just to get Him to say,"okay,you can go in" but He didn't.
The Lord just told me,"you are just making it worse by doing this because you will make Me extend the time of releasing you.Complaining doesn't help,just sit down and obey."
So I decided to obey Him regardless of how I was feeling.
I just sat down quietly and at 3 am,The Lord told us,"You can go in and rest, but don't eat,continue fasting till morning, just drink water"
That's how important obedience is to Jesus!
But the Lord started manifesting Himself in our lives,and in everything concerning us no matter how small.
Another thing I did was never to allow anything to be above Jesus in my life.
I used to be addicted to the internet, but I deliberately broke my phone and didn't even care.
As long as I had Jesus,that was enough.
I involved Jesus in every part of my life.
When you take a step closer to Jesus, He ll take a step closer to you.
He relates to us,as we do to Him.
One night we were praying and Satan sent some demons to attack us,as soon as they reached our house, Jesus showed up and He rebuked them, "how dare you try to touch My beloved?!My very own!"
And they fled.
One day I was worshipping the Lord and dancing!
I had put worship music on and I was just lost in the presence of God.I was rejoicing and dancing. And I shouted,"Jesus come and dance with me!"
Immediately I said that,I saw the Lord's hand made of glorious white light,and He held my hand as I was dancing for Him!
Am sharing this so that you know that if we set our hearts to seek Jesus,it is possible to find Him!
All of this happened at the very beginning of my walk with Jesus.
I had no prior spiritual experiences,but I just started seeking Him and Jesus did get involved in my everyday life.
And Jesus wants everyone of His children to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.
Another thing I forgot to mention was that I was also spending much time reading the bible.
When I started seeking the Lord like this,all the secular music I knew just vanished from my memory! I couldn't remember them. And all longing for secular movies vanished!
We should not be satisfied being distant from Jesus when He has called us into great intimacy.
I want to get closer to Him,you should too.

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

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.
