Perfect WORDS, Perfect WORKS, Perfect WONDERS : The cost of Discipleship- EVERYTHING – 2022 – A Year of Swings of Surprises for those that know their God

Friends, we are about to round off our retreat, seeking Him more deeply and looking at our lives, our work and walk with Him as we plan for the future, expectant of the great and mighty promises He has led out ahead of us as we seek to be and to do all that He has called us into at this time, and in this season. We expect Intercession with the saints and Impartation for greater exploits out there on the field. The five fold ministry is for Equipping and not for show off by some new kids on the block.

The cost of Discipleship

Every child of God has been given authority to heal the sick and to cast out demon without any kind of mantle. Our mantle is the presence and power of the Holy Spirit resident in us all.

For lack of proper teaching and practice, we have shelved the authority. And the 5% that are gifted for equipping are busy increasing the bar for new entrant. This should not be. Harvest is plentiful but labourers are few because Discipleship- Equipping is not happening.

Daniel 11:31-33
New King James Version
31 And [a]forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. 32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall [b]corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 33 And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering.

Matthew 9:35-38
English Standard Version
The Harvest Is Plentiful, the Laborers Few
35 (A)And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 (B)When he saw the crowds, (C)he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, (D)like sheep without a shepherd. 37 (E)Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore (F)pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to (G)send out laborers into his harvest.”

This is no longer time for show off! This is time for Impartation and hardcore delibrate Discipleship effort to deploying labourers into the sea of humanity.

He told us this year, we should pray WITH His leaders and His church and we shall see His mighty works as we step out in faith. This we have determined to do and we will impart.

Apart from the Prayer Haven Networks for Leaders in Ministry, in Business, Government and Politics ; and the believers session, once a week, beginning February, we will have a virtual HEALING and EQUIPPING ROOM as we expect to demolish COVID 19 and all it’s variant both present and future with the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimonies and obliterating all kinds of infirmity(ies) through the authority in Christ.

We will expect healing, deliverance and restoration of issues that are presented because Jesus came to set the captives free. It will be a 40 minutes session on Facebook, telegram and other platforms as the Spirit leads.

*Eternal life is a GIFT but we must let GO and let God into our innermost circle*⭕🔴

Some reminders for me and for you is that eternal life is a gift of God but we must leave all the world to obtain this gift.

We either fill our hands with the world or empty our hands of the world so that we can receive this gift.

There is always an EXCHANGE that needs to take place. We can say, *“Oh, I will like to keep the world and add salvation to it”.* We will get nothing but air and emptiness, and the realm of nothingness. –  _The deep rooted JOY of the LORD will ellude us like a plague in the desert. This is the main reason why so many of us are in the realm of cluelessness, unhappiness, sadness, unfulfilled expectations and faithlessness in God._

We must STAND up and claim our identity in Christ.

The GOOD NEWS 🆕 is all about a love gift from God our maker through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Our total obedience to Him is our response to that Love. It is on the bases of the Love that we accept and experience in a day to day bases, that all the fullness of God become manifested in us. When we know we are special because God loved us and we are loving Him back, no matter the cost, we will love all His creation – GOOD, BAD and UGLY.

We are Just reflecting exactly what Jesus did. For God so loved us and gave His Son…John 3:16

If God did not spare His Son for our sakes, then why should we hold on to the things of the world that is here today and gone tomorrow? Do the mathematics ➗. That is why He wants us to let go of the world – the mindset, including the systems and ways of thinking of the world, because one single soul cannot be bought by the entire wealth of the whole  earth 🌎

Mark 8:36-37
The Passion Translation
*36 For what use is it to gain all the wealth and power of this world, with everything it could offer you, at the cost of your own life? 37 And what could be more valuable to you than your own soul?*

Think about that a moment. YET, in less than 2 years, over 5 million people have perish as a result of COVID – 19 virus. How many of them have made their peace with God before going back into the realm of eternity where no decision can be made? Your guess is as good and wild as mine – Not many!

It is either we have ALL of God, all that He has called us to be, that is, into the likeness of His Son and ALL that He has asked us to be, into the Perfect WORDs, WORKS and WONDERS of God, through His Son.

Therein can we have Perfect WORDS, Perfect WORKS, and Perfect WONDERS. God will not, and never lower His standard to accommodate our pent-up failing, gallons and religion.

He desires REAL LOVING relationship.
Deep-rooted, all in, all inclusive relationship. Anything outside TOTAL in is rubbish.

2022 is a year of swings, a year of surprises and a year of blessings too for all who will dare to get enveloped completely in Him and Him in us.

*Meditate on these three scriptures*

*Hebrews 10:38*
English Standard Version
38 (A)but my righteous one shall live by faith,
    and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”

*Galatians 3:11*
English Standard Version
11 Now it is evident that (A)no one is justified before God by the law, for (B)“The righteous shall live by faith

*Romans 1:17*
English Standard Version
17 For in it (A)the righteousness of God is revealed (B)from faith for faith,[a] (C)as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”[

*This year, the righteous shall live by faith in Jesus name, amen – step out in faith and see the salvation of the LORD*

Christianity is so practical as practical can be…no theories, and no unproven terrain.

Key message for us all:

*Know God – intimately, seek God – passionately, walk with God and in God TOTALLY, no looking back, walk and work in FAITH.*

Know and experience what you and I believe in Him. It’s not about us, or about them or we. *It’s about Him and Me or You and Him.*

Enjoy this video as you Meditate on the 3 scriptures below.

*Scriptures for MEDITATION:*

Luke 14:25-35
The Passion Translation
*The Cost of Following Jesus*
25 As massive crowds followed Jesus, he turned to them and said, 26 “When you follow me as my disciple, you must put aside[a] your father, your mother, your wife, your sisters, your brothers; it will even seem as though you hate your own life. This is the price you’ll pay to be considered one of my followers. 27 Anyone who comes to me must be willing to share my cross and experience it as his own, or he cannot be considered to be my disciple. 28 So don’t follow me without considering what it will cost you. For who would construct a house[b] before first sitting down to estimate the cost to complete it? 29 Otherwise he may lay the foundation and not be able to finish. The neighbors will ridicule him, saying, 30 ‘Look at him! He started to build but couldn’t complete it!’

31 “Have you ever heard of a commander[c] who goes out to war without first sitting down with strategic planning to determine the strength of his army to win the war[d] against a stronger opponent? 32 If he knows he doesn’t stand a chance of winning the war, the wise commander will send out delegates to ask for the terms of peace. 33 Likewise, unless you surrender all to me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be one of my disciples.

34 “Salt is good for seasoning. But if salt were to lose its flavor,[e] how could it ever be restored? 35 It will never be useful again, not even fit for the soil or the manure pile![f] If you have ears opened by the Spirit, then hear the meaning of what I have said and apply it to yourselves.”

*1 Timothy 6:7-10*
The Passion Translation
7 Isn’t it true that our hands were empty when we came into the world, and when we leave this world our hands will be empty again?

8 Because of this, food and clothing is enough to make us content.

9 But those who crave the wealth of this world slip into spiritual snares. They become trapped by the troubles that come through their foolish and harmful desires, driven by greed and drowning in their own sinful pleasures. And they take others down with them into their corruption and eventual destruction.

10 Loving money[a] is a root of all evils. Some people run after it so much that they have given up their faith. Craving more money pushes them away from the faith into error, compounding misery in their lives!

*Philippians 3:7-11*
The Passion Translation
7 Yet all of the accomplishments that I once took credit for, I’ve now forsaken them and I regard it all as nothing compared to the delight of experiencing Jesus Christ as my Lord! 8 To truly know him meant letting go of everything from my past and throwing all my boasting on the garbage heap. It’s all like a pile of manure to me now, so that I may be enriched in the reality of knowing Jesus Christ and embrace him as Lord in all of his greatness.

9 My passion is to be consumed with him and not cling to my own “righteousness” based in keeping the written Law. My only “righteousness” will be his, based on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ—the very righteousness that comes from God. 10 And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and become like him in his death. 11 Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death
