Let’s getting cracking into our title today. We start from the last and backwards to the beginning!

Prayer and Fasting for Continent of Oceania – Willingness and Obedience

The scripture basis for today’s prayer and fasting us Isaiah 1: 10 -30 but narrowed down to six verses as follows:

Isaiah 1:15-20
English Standard Version
15 When you spread out your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.
16 Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
17     learn to do good;
seek justice,
correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow’s cause.

18 “Come now, let us reason[a] together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,you shall eat the good of the land; 20 but if you refuse and rebel,you shall be eaten by the sword;for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Father, we present and represent to You Lord God the people of the nations in the continent of Oceania. In the multitude of your mercy, visit them with Your abundant grace, peace and grant unto them, a willing heart to respond to Your call over their lives in FULL obedience so that they would partake of the good of this great and beautiful continent with diverse human and material resources with Your end-to-end Spiritual covering in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

GET FIVE (5) Counterintuitive life transforming instructions from God that just does not make common season and HIDDEN REASONS to obey them for SPIRITUAL GROWTH with lasting IMPACT

This title have been bubbling in my spirit for more than two weeks. I have come to realize that God always have our best interest in mind when He gives us instructions that does not make worldly sense.

Most of God’s instructions are counterintuitive in nature.. meaning, contrary to intuition or to common-sense expectation.

Hereunder are Five (5) of the life divining instructions and I will give you hidden reasons why you should obey them by all means possible, because they require us taking our cross daily to obey, hence many run from them but therein lies spiritual growth and maturity in God and fruit that endures

1) Love your enemies, bless those who persecute you, do not curse them, and give to them in GOOD words and in GOOD deeds

Supportive scripture:

Luke 6:35
But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men.

Exodus 23:5
If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying helpless under its load, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall surely release it with him

Proverbs 25:21-22
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
For you will heap burning coals on his head,
And the Lord will reward you

HIDDEN REASON:

Every negative emotions backed up with deadly thought processes against anyone or anything takes a life of it’s on. Gets embedded in our subconscious mind. Over time, it becomes an idol in our hearts. It is visible in the spirit realm as a dark force and attracts the realm and kingdom of darkness. It becomes a doorway through which the enemy can launch an attack on the persons or things we hold dearly in our hearts. Those images replaces the only true God in our hearts and we therefore break the first and send commandments in the ten commandments God issued to us.
The act of praying, loving,  giving detoxifies the heart and replaces with light which attracts the God of love for God is love and light. There are many reasons but this is the hidden one

2) The  GREATEST or LEADER should be the SERVANT – Want to be first? be the last of all and servant of all

Scriptures:

Luke 22:26
But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.

Mark 9:35
Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all

Matthew 23:10
Do not let yourselves be called leaders or teachers; for One is your Leader (Teacher), the Christ

HIDDEN REASON:

You can’t serve well from the top until you become the people you are sent to serve, not by observation but by experience. Our loudest example is God who sent His Son to experience humanity so that He can be a better intercessor and intervene better concerning human affairs.

Running throughout Hebrews 5:8, Christ learnt obedience by the things He suffered, which is one sentence that goes on for three verses, we have a vivid picture of the life of Jesus on earth. Jesus is the infinite Son of God, who experienced the limits of time and space as every human does. God the Father could have created a fully grown adult, Jesus, but didn’t.

Jesus left heaven, entered time and space (Philippians 2:5-8), under a death sentence for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 1:21). Jesus experienced ordinary human life from birth to adulthood and death. As fully God, Jesus learned nothing, because He knows everything. In His humanity, Jesus chose the weak position of learning and growing (Luke 2:52).

Jesus learned obedience, not in the sense He disobeyed or had rebelliousness to bring under control, but that He fully entered the human experience in the Incarnation

3) The way to live in God is to die first

Scriptures:

Luke 9:23
23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me

Colossians 3:1-3
English Standard Version
Put On the New Self
3 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God

Matthew 16:24–26 (NKJV) “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?’”

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

John 15:5 ESV
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Galatians 5:24 ESV
And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires

1 Corinthians 9:7
Who at any time serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Or who tends a flock and does not use the milk of the flock?

2 Timothy 2:3-4
Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.

HIDDEN REASON:

No one goes into military service with his or her own agenda. You get there, find out what the commander in chief wants done and how he expects you to act, dress, eat, where to go etc. As a christian, you don’t have a personal agenda. Your agenda is what is downloaded to you now by God and you do and become what He wants you to be and to do!

4) Forgive 490 times a day if they apologize

Scriptures:

Luke 6:37
Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Matthew 18:21-22
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”

Mark 11:25
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

HIDDEN REASON

The reason is this: If you refuse to forgive anyone for anything, God cannot forgive that person you are holding onto in offence. You ask why? God has given you the earth realm to rule, to degree, to bind etc. He has not withdrawn that authority from you reenacted in Christ Jesus after Adam lost it to satan. And so, when you refuse to forgive, He can’t forgive the person you are holding unto. God then holds the forgiveness to you because your unforgiveness account neutralizes God forgiveness account to zero. When you Release others, your account is in the positive. God always forgives. Look at this scripture, what do you make of it?

John 20:22-23
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
22 And having said this, He breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit!

23 [Now having received the Holy Spirit, and being [a]led and directed by Him] if you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of anyone, they are retained

Read this “If he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘repent,’ you must forgive him.” — Luke 17:4

The Good News: There is no maximum amount of forgiveness we can bestow

5) Give, and you receive, good measure, pressed down.. running over

Scriptures:

Luke 6:38 ESV
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Proverbs 11:24-25
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered

Acts 20:35 ESV
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Luke 14:12-14 ESV
He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

2 Corinthians 9:6-7 ESV
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

HIDDEN REASON

There is nothing God tells us to do that He Himself does not show by example. In John 3:16, we read that God loved the world and He gave His only Son…in doing this more than two thousand years ago, today, God has over 2 billion children through Christ death, burial and resurrectio. These new children have sworn allegiance to Him. He started the chain reaction by first giving His own Son that He can have more of those that will look like His own Son.

Next, title What would you do differently if you have just five (5) Years to live? and as a Christian Parent, LEARN from Franks true life story on how to respond to a child heading for the PRECIPICE – Life was good and then everything started collapsing around Frank’s life

Life was Good, but then Everything Started Falling Apart.

I’d like to tell you that what you’re about to read is really important and is going to impact your life. The truth is, I’m probably not going to tell you anything you haven’t heard before, but let me encourage you to read it anyway.

Raised in a Christian Home

I was raised on a dairy farm in the Fraser Valley (British Columbia, Canada) along with five sisters and one brother. It was a beautiful, quiet place. As a preschooler, I often took our dog along the creek to fish over the hill at the back of our property. My parents always taught me about God and his Son Jesus, so as I walked, I would often think about God. Was He bigger than my dad? How long was forever – longer than a Sunday morning service?

I also did all the things that children do in a Christian home: Sunday school, choir practice, young people’s groups, and so forth. I did them all without complaining – until I was 15. It was Sunday morning and Dad and I had just finished chores. I was slow coming in from the barn and Dad told me to hurry up because I was going to be late for church. It was that morning that I told him I wouldn’t be going to church anymore. My dad was a big guy – very strong and with a fuse so short it couldn’t be measured – so, I was expecting the worst. Instead, he looked at me with the most hurtful look on his face. I had to leave the room. I just couldn’t look at him.

My Heart Was Hardened

Something happened to me that day. I started to get hard inside. Before long, I was drinking on weekends and dropped out of school. By the time I was seventeen, my behavior was such that Mom and Dad asked me to leave home. There is a lot of security in an orderly Christian home and when I was on my own, I was lost. I continued to drink heavily, and many nights I slept in my car in some gravel pit or behind somebody’s barn, because I was too drunk to drive home. I couldn’t find a job good enough to support myself, so, out of desperation, I joined the army.

After six months of basic training, I was posted to Germany. When you’re in your late teens or early twenties and you’re living in a place where anything goes, that’s how you live. Cheap booze and lots of pretty girls became my lifestyle. After three years, I came home. The first thing I did was visit my Dad, who happened to be clearing land with his bulldozer. When he saw me, he shut off the machine and came over. It was a long time before he could speak; he was so glad to see me.

However, it didn’t take long before my life was right back where it had been before I left. About a year later, I met a gal whose father was also a heavy drinker, so my behavior didn’t surprise her. We were soon married and eventually had two daughters.

One of the things my Dad taught me was how to work hard. I started my first business when I was in my mid-twenties, and it went quite well. A few years later, I bought a large poultry farm, which also did well. Even with this success, though, my drinking was always a problem. It affected my marriage and family so much that I knew I had to do something. So I went to my first Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting. To my disappointment, all I heard that evening was these guys talking about God. What a disappointment. I thought they were actually going to teach me something about how to quit drinking.

A Brief Attempt at Change

Even so, I made up my mind I was not going to drink anymore and I actually started taking my kids to church. I got so religious I think even God couldn’t stand me! But two years later, I began drinking again.

I don’t know why, but the evening I started drinking, I stopped in to see my Dad, who was widowed by now (Mom had passed away ten years earlier). I told him I couldn’t keep up this lifestyle anymore and I was going back to drinking. Again, Dad had the wisdom not to say much, although I could tell he was very sad. He was a reactionary, so for him not to react to the things I was doing was a gift from God.

When I was in my mid-thirties, I had the chance to sell both of my businesses, so I did. By then I had built up enough equity that if I were wise with my money, I wouldn’t have to work any more. So I bought the big house on the hill. I had everything that was supposed to make me happy, but was the most miserable I had ever been.

One Sunday morning I was in bed sick and hung over. For the first time in years I prayed: “God, I have everything I want, and I’m still unhappy. There has to be more to life than this. I ask that you do whatever it takes to get me right with you. If you have to take all of this away, then do it.”

I’m here to tell you – God answers prayer!

Everything Fell Apart

Not long after I prayed that prayer, I sold our big house on the hill and bought a large acreage, where I built a new house. It was just about that time that things started to come apart. Our marriage was a mess, and my finances were going down the drain. Even though lots of good deals came my way, I couldn’t seem to keep any of the money I made. Things got to the point, that for the first time in many years, I had to go to work for someone as an employee. That was very hard on my pride. I took a job as a heavy equipment operator in a road building camp. It was very much like the army: the tougher and cruder you were, the more respect you got from the other men. Let’s just say I had a lot of respect.

When I was home, I would stop in to see my Dad. He was always glad to see me, and I always knew he cared about me. I also knew he loved the Lord and that he had something I thought I would never have. You see, by this time I thought I was doomed to hell and there wasn’t anything I could do about it. One Sunday afternoon, I visited Dad prior to him going for some exploratory surgery. After our visit, I headed back to camp.

That Wednesday, I got a call telling me Dad had passed away. By this time I was so hard, I told my wife I wouldn’t be coming home. I didn’t want to see her or my Christian brothers and sisters. I knew going home wouldn’t bring back the one person I knew who loved me. But once again, God intervened.

Without my knowing, Dad had changed his will two days before he passed away, naming me executor of his estate. My sister Katherine had her son-in-law drive her out to the camp to tell me. In spite of how dirty I was, she gave me a big hug, and I nearly cried. And so, I had to go home.

My Father’s Legacy

It took me a week to take care of Dad’s business. When everything was completed, there were only two things left: his bedside Bible and a book by Hal Lindsey called The Late Great Planet Earth. I threw both of them in my bag, went on a two-day drunk, and then headed back to camp.

Over the next two weeks, I started to read some of the verses Dad had underlined in his Bible, more out of curiosity than anything. I also began to read Hal Lindsey’s book. I remember reading a particular passage where it said that when Jesus died on the cross, He died for all of my sins: past, present, and future. I stopped. I had never heard that before. It must be a misprint, I thought. I must have read it five or six times before the lights came on and I realized that Christianity had everything to do with Christ dying for me and very little to do with Frank being good enough.

Talk about excited! I got down on my knees and accepted Christ’s forgiveness for my past sins and asked him to be my Savior now and in the future. For the first time in my life I felt free. I got up off my knees and was jumping up and down on my bed yelling, I’m free! I’m free!

That was ten years ago.

I’d like to tell you that since that time everything has been great. The truth is, my marriage still came apart, my kids still had to go through our divorce and I still lost all of my money. But for the first time I could turn to God and have peace through all of it.

*I also faced the fact that I was an alcoholic.*

Through AA, I was able to clean up the wreckage of my past and become free to get on with the rest of my life. Nearly a year later, I met my childhood sweetheart, June, who had also given her life to Christ. We were married not long afterwards and God has continued to do great things in my life. My kids have learned to trust me again and I have two stepchildren that love me and four grandchildren who love to see me. Each one of our children and their spouse has made a commitment to Christ.

New Opportunities

One-and-a-half years ago, I prayed that God would give us opportunities to share what He has done for us. A month later, June and I found ourselves in the Amazon with a JESUS film project, where we saw hundreds of people come to know Jesus for the first time.Then, last October, my brother Don and I traveled to the Ukraine with Campus Crusade for Christ. We got to see the house where Dad and his family lived. We also shared Christ with many people including those living on a military base. Again, hundreds of people heard and responded to the good news of Jesus for the first time.

A Fatal Diagnosis

Before I left for the Ukraine, June and I knew there was something wrong with me physically. I had been very fatigued and was stumbling and tripping a lot. I went to see a specialist, and on December 16, 1994, I was diagnosed with ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. People with ALS have a life expectancy of between two to five years after symptoms appear. I’ve probably had this for one-and-a-half years already, so I don’t know how much time I have left. I asked God to remove the fear of death, and he has done that. I also asked Him to make my life count for whatever time I have left.

Shortly after my diagnosis, a friend of mine at work died of cancer. He was a Christian, and he asked me to do his funeral service. I had the opportunity to share my faith with about 150 people, a number of them non-churched construction workers. I don’t know if any one of their lives were changed as a result of my story. My job is simply to share what God has done in my life and let Him use me where He can. When you know you haven’t got long to live, the fear of man is gone, because you have nothing to prove. But you’re all in my shoes, really, because whether we have a terminal illness or not, each day, we’re all one step closer to meeting Jesus than we were yesterday.

*What Will it be Like?*

I sometimes wonder what it will be like to be all alone with Jesus – to sit beside a quiet stream in the mountains and ask Him all the questions I have; to stand and look into the face of the One who died for me and tell Him how much I love Him. Isn’t it great that He isn’t some al being but rather a real and living God we all get to spend eternity with? Can you imagine touching the Christ who died on the cross and rose again? To never wonder again: Was that God talking or was it just me?

I know there have been very few changes in my life that Frank has made. Everything that has changed in my life has come about when I’ve surrendered to God by the power of His Holy Spirit. He has made the changes, and He’s still doing it. I’m so thankful for a Christian Mom and Dad that never gave up on me. When I want to judge my own children, I’m often reminded of my Dad and how he loved me unconditionally. The Bible says,

*“If you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him?” (Matthew 7:11, emphasis mine).*

Where this journey leads me is truly in the hands of God. I just ask for His mercy and grace to accept all He has for me.

You Can Have it Too!
If you’re reading this and have yet to invite Jesus to be your Savior, there will never be a better day than today. It’s just as easy and as free as it was for me back in that road camp. There’s no magic in any particular words, but if God is speaking to you, don’t wait. Don’t harden your heart one more time.

If there’s unforgiveness in your heart, deal with it. Don’t wait. You can walk in freedom and it’s wonderful. Ask God to show you if there’s anything you need to deal with and then ask Him for the courage to deal with it. He’ll give it to you. He is always faithful.

by Frank Krause

What about you? Are you wondering what life is all about? Do you, like Frank, feel that something is missing in your life? If so, you can find fulfilment and peace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Bible says (Jesus is speaking),

*“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3.20).*

Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive us of our sins and to make us what He wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. We receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of our will.

*You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer.*

Praying is simply talking to God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. Here’s a suggested prayer:

_Lord Jesus, I want to know You personally. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life to You and ask You to come in as my Savior and Lord. Take control of my life. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be._

If you prayed this prayer we would love to hear from you . If you would like to know God deeper we can connect you with an email mentor. Send email to info@otakada.org or go to www.otakada.org and leave a message on our website
