Do not stay there . . . Move!

Many people of the former generation have made a mistake of staying in a place even when things are not fruitful. . . They just stay there because they fear what the future holds for them if they abandon their current position.

This issue has made many people stereotypic and keeps them from journey to their Canaan land. Some that are privileged build a castle for themselves while those that are not privileged accept fate and make struggle their daily bread.

What GOD desires for us is that we journey through this life till we end up in our Canaan and begin to do that which GOD desires for us in that particular place.

In the Bible there accounts of people being under a ruler and an apprentice under a master. There is none of these examples that the people did not move out from the grasp of the ruler or receive “freedom” from their master. Even JESUS only discipled the disciples for 3.5 years before HE died, resurrected and ascended into Heaven.

GOD in any way does not encourage servitude and will never do. HE instructs people to move out when it is time and showed HIS against any master or ruler who failed to release HIS people. HE also made things hard for HIS people if they are to convenient in what they see as Canaan but it’s actually Goshen.

GOD desires fruitfulness for HIS in diverse manners; HE is not a stereotypical GOD who keeps people for doing the same thing all over again just for the saje of survival. GOD is never interested in making a set of people self-sufficient alone but rather, HE desires that they be a source of blessing to other set of people. So after delivering them from their ruler or instructing their master to release them, it is not so that they should camp midway and begin to fend for themselves or depend solely on the milk of GOD.

Living Tomorrow Today . . .

It is not a feeling of grandeur or conspiracy when I say that the present situation is not pleasant to GOD in many ways. HE is waiting for that time that had already been set when people will please HIM by default though it is by choice. Their choice would be to have no choice other than to please HIM all the time.

David, Daniel, Micah, Ezekiel, Peter, Paul, and John were among those who lived their lives as the Testimony of CHRIST. All/Most of their actions and responses were based on witnessing JESUS. People thought they were crazy and out of their minds but the Spirit of the LORD witnessed CHRIST and gave them the assurance of eternity.

People called them crazy because they refused to live a rotten presence by living a glorious future even in their own present times. These people were living in GOD’s present which to the world and complacent disciples was the future that never came or was distant from their today. It is better to live in the future now than to live in the present that GOD has abandoned.

But there will come, a time when GOD will change the order of thing by making corrections to the offsets between the earth and HIS Heavenly Kingdom. Though it is a restoration of balance between the Heaven and the earth, the world would see it as chaos and only those who are living tomorrow today that would be left untouched no matter how severe the chaos may seem to be. In fact, they will benefit from this chaos while others are wasting away. It is not that GOD is unjust. No! HE is only responding to people according to their choices!

Love is the basis of The KINGDOM Culture . . .

In Exodus 19:6, GOD called Israel the Holy Nation and Kingdom of Priests. HE told them to come unto HIM that HE may write HIS Laws upon their hearts. HE even called them HIS First Born which signifies that GOD wanted many Sons unto HIMSELF.

HE did not want them to conquer by war but by Love; HE wanted them to serve as Priests so as to lead other nations into the presence of the LORD so that they can be come holy as HE is holy. If Love is essence and being and HIS Word is who HE is, it confirms that whatever GOD wanted to achieve through the Israelites was not what happened after they rejected HIS encounter.

But in Micah4:3, GOD was saying that in the days to come, people would no longer need swords or spears but plowshares and pruninghooks. This means that instead of war and destruction order, beauty and fruitfulness would be the order of the day. The energy people use for waging war against will be used for producing beauty and wealth.

The only force that can produce beauty and fruitfulness is Love for it is through the Love of GOD and the love for man that man creates solutions for the problems that abound in this world. By these creations, people would automatic go through processes they should not have gone through voluntarily. They will begin to subscribe to the system love has created in being a solution to a problem.

Had Israelites agreed with the LORD, Amorites, Hittites, Jebusites would have been remembered as part of the LORD’s people till today. But because they refused, GOD had to do things based on their choices. Their relationship with GOD would have birthed something great in the hearts. Imagine the whole Israelites acting and responding to issues with Love in their hearts (as Priests); carrying the burden of other nations till they accept GOD. It would have been a glorious sight!

Preemptivity of Wisdom

There is so much adoration for bravery and cleverness but to me, it is most times a show of how unwise we really are.

Bravery is when you act against a heavy obstacle or a powerful opponent; it is sheer bravery when you do it all alone.

Cleverness is when you attend to a matter that has reached near doom and requires much skillfulness and ingenuity.

WISDOM is not bravery nor is it cleverness. It is more of winning without battle/war and solving problems before they even appear to be a problem. Wisdom is what will ensure peace in a nation; it is what will put it in order. Bravery and cleverness are just like short term qualities needed in executing what wisdom has conceptualize.

Let no man think bravery can sustain him till the end for he will wear out along the way and even if he makes it to the end, his rest would be spent in recovery.

Let no man think cleverness can take him till the end for at a point in his journey, he will meet a situation that is beyond his cleverness. At most, he will devise inappropriate means to scale through huddles. And at the end, he would be paranoid for he knows that he has not provided lasting solution to the problems he faced.

It is wisdom to think ahead and design processes for the journey ahead. It also wisdom not to show bravery when team dynamics is available; it is wisdom to attend to matters definitely and not cut corners just to evade the problems.

The unpalatable truth is that solutions provided through WISDOM is never appreciated at first; it is always seen as bad at the onset but after all is said and done, it would surely be celebrated and accorded due accolades but this may be in the absence of those who initiated it.

Relativity of Normal . . .

“What is normal to you may not be normal to me” This is one of the common sentences that arise whenever there is an argument or a misunderstanding between people of different and diverse view of life.

But the real question should be to ask and inquire what is normal to GOD. What does GOD see as normal or abnormal?

I recently discovered through the help of the HOLY SPIRIT that part of Psalms23 that says “HE restores my soul” is pointing to the mindset of GOD that was taking from him long ago during the fall of Adam and ultimately the splitting that occurred at Babel.

Now people see other sets of people as abnormal because they do not conform or agree to their beliefs. In fact, there are many beliefs that people are no longer united in aim and objectives. Each set now have sets of aims and objectives based on what they perceive as normal.

There is a different set of people that other sets agree unanimously about their abnormality and this is the set that dares and thrive to be restored to the original mindset GOD had for everyone.

I discovered that as the HOLY SPIRIT enlightens our hearts and minds, we are restored to the mind of CHRIST to an appreciable degree. But as we cultivate the mind of CHRIST and conform to it in the process, people with other mindsets see us as abnormal set of people even as we conform to the right mindset.

The fall of Adam and the coming together of the people in Babel are the major causes of abnormality the world refers to as normal. But by the HOLY SPIRIT, we can come together again but unto a holy cause so that we can be restored to the Garden of GOD.

Brother like a friend. Friend like a brother

Proverbs 18:24

I believe that the Bible is rounded but verses like this always make me believe more that the Bible is the manual needed to search out how GOD wants us to live.

When the Bible says there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, then there should also be a brother that plays or relates with one than a friend would . . . It goes for both side and that is GOD’s design for us for not being lonely 🙂 . Which means when you are away from home, there are people that you would see as family but are not really your biological family. When you are with them, you miss your biological family a lot less. This is not to say you do not like your family anymore but that you have nurtured a relationship somewhere that makes you feel what you feel at home.

And the same goes for when we are at home. The relationship between our family members must be one that is not too shrewd but gives room for guided individual expressions that one enjoys outside home. Whenever we are away from friends, home you should be where to feel what we always feel when we are with friends.

Moving up the ladder, parents are supposed to be the children’s disciplers I.e. they should be the first to initiate a discipleship relationship with their children before they experience the ones outside. And also dsciplers outside are also meant to take the proper roles of parents though they are not biological parents. When parents take the role of disciplers as part of the roles, disciplers must also take the role of parents as part of the roles.

But there is a relationship that one should endeavour to start/maintain and that is the fellowship relationship with GOD. HE is indeed a friend that sticks closer than the skin when we give HIM the space HE requires to fellowship with us. With HIM, no loneliness can override the feeling that HE is with us and we are in HIM. HE is a Brother (JESUS), Friend (HOLY SPIRIT) and Father (GOD).

Micah 4: 1-5

When I was reading these passages and I got to the part that says nations will stream into the mountain of the LORD. As I was ruminating on the text, I remember one of my earlier posts about channel and valves that are supposed to direct people and not necessarily control them.

Which confirms that for people to flow into the mountain of the LORD there must be channels/pipes and valves that are responsible for leading people to that mountain without veering away from the path GOD has chosen for people to follow . . .

The channels are people dedicated to teaching the ways of the LORD to those that are thirsty for GOD for how will people flow into it without a designed channel for that main purpose. Perhaps the reason why nations have never been flowing is because there are no enough channels that should be responsible for leading people in that right way that leads to the LORD’s House . . .

Earth. Water. Fire. Wind

Here is the mystery that lies in GOD’s creation:

GOD formed man from moisten earth and gave him the breath of life . . . But whenever he wants to purify and strengthen HE uses fire.

Even after making a man with earth which signifies the flesh, he nourish him with water which is the WORD (which is also the spirit and life) and solidify him with experiences and hardship that comes his way and that signifies fire. And after all these, HE now directs and controls him wherever HE wants him to go.

These are the elements of life that some people have twisted for their unholy purposes but it is actually the spiritual essence of it that GOD is interested. That a man of flesh will subject himself to the WORD of GOD and endure hard times without compromise and even after his triumph by scaling through and becoming stronger, he will still submit to the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT (John3:8).

To every earth there must be some moisture content and this is what will be operating in the earth before the rain comes upon the earth. Which means that the first fruitfulness of man is willing and yielding to GOD, expecting showers of rain to add to what is already inside of him . . .

To control and to direct . . .

Though there is much similarity between controlling and directing, they are also different in some ways.

It is always necessary to control our environment by making sure unwanted things are not present in there; there is need to control animals, machines and even to control one’s body when necessary. But you are not meant to take control of human being! You are only meant to direct and make good use of their potentials.

Like a scalar and vector quantity so is a man with potential and no direction differs from a man with potential and sense of direction. A follower is like a water flowing vigorously or gently through a channel and it is the responsibility of a leader to direct this kinetic energy into something useful.

The speed of the water should be controlled if it would lead to waste and destruction but when the water is at the normal and reasonable speed, all the leader needs to do is to give it a sense of direction so all its energy can be utilised for the greater good.

To every man, there is a purpose and the role of the leader does not go beyond putting the follow on the path to fulfilling that purpose for no man should control the course another man’s life.

As GOD is only the one to be in control of mankind, so are we only to be in control of things around us that are not human. The best a man can do is to make a scalar-man a vectorial man. A man’s magnitude should not be tampered; one can only help another to discover strength but not try and increase or decrease it for everything we need has been coded in us and all we need is to discover.

The leader is like the channel with valves at each junction which are meant to control or direct the waters. The leader knowing the true way will guide the followers to the place he has been, shadowing the attributes of CHRIST.

A man can be controlled only if he is going aimlessly to doom without knowing it. So control is the last thing to resort to in governing people for our primary role is to direct people and lead them to follow the right way and this is meant for those that are already walking in that path . . .

The Bible is not hypocritical . . .

Have you ever wondered that the Bible is not a record of good deeds and exploits of fathers faith in the old testament and fellow saints who had gone before us after the death of CHRIST?

It is so that we might know that they are no more different than us; they are not angels or ancients of days; they are weak and feeble as we are today but what made them stand out is their yieldedness to GOD.

So the Bible should be everyone’s favourite because in it lies the good, bad and and the ugly, all working together to bring forth the Glory of GOD and teach us how to initiate a cordial relationship with GOD. Even the so called excessive punishment of GOD upon HIS people were not exempted for the purpose of trying to paint GOD good before unbelievers.

This cannot be said for government and institutions of this present time. Everybody is busy writing his story like he is the good guy, thereby neglecting his evil deeds or painting it as necessary evil. If we are to be always biased then we must not endeavour to write a story about ourselves or situations around us.

Biographies are meant to summarise the entirety of a man’s existence and not emphasise on his good deeds and neglecting bad deeds or painting it as good for this is only a caricature of the real story and it is always meant to mislead people rather than edify which is the original intent.
