We Need Each Other ( by Fenny West)


We Need Each Other

We need each other, like brother and sister
like the gloves and the hand; hand-in-hand -all weather
together we can make the world go round
overcoming any mount, mound and become sound.
We belong to each other, no matter the colour

As the black and white keys on a piano.
Let’s make good music, gel and flow
You have what I need; I need what you have.
Why then should we keep apart and starve?
We need each other to go on higher.

In agreement can we be broken?
Let us share our gifts and be open.
Together we can stand and withstand,
And disarm any disuniting wicked band.
Together we can grow stronger and glow better.

30 How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them? Deut 32:30

6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Gen11:6

Psalms 133: Blessed Unity of the People of God A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing — Life forevermore. Ps133:

Acts 2: Coming of the Holy Spirit
1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts2:1-4

24 So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said: “Lord, You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them,
25 who by the mouth of Your servant David have said: ‘ Why did the nations rage, And the people plot vain things?
26 The kings of the earth took their stand, And the rulers were gathered together Against the LORD and against His Christ.’
27 “For truly against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together
28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose determined before to be done.
29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,
30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Acts4:24-31

The Philippian Jailer Saved
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.
28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”
29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.
30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.
34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.Acts16:25-34

7 Then the LORD said to Gideon, “By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go, every man to his place.”
8 So the people took provisions and their trumpets in their hands. And he sent away all the rest of Israel, every man to his tent, and retained those three hundred men. Now the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.
9 It happened on the same night that the LORD said to him, “Arise, go down against the camp, for I have delivered it into your hand.12 Now the Midianites and Amalekites, all the people of the East, were lying in the valley as numerous as locusts; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the seashore in multitude.
17 And he said to them, “Look at me and do likewise; watch, and when I come to the edge of the camp you shall do as I do:
18 When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you also blow the trumpets on every side of the whole camp, and say, ‘The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!’ “
19 So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outpost of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just as they had posted the watch; and they blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers that were in their hands.
20 Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers — they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing — and they cried, “The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!”
21 And every man stood in his place all around the camp; and the whole army ran and cried out and fled.
22 When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.

Judges 7:7-9,17-22

Ephesians 4: Walk in Unity
1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,
3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;
5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Eph4:1-6

 

It Is Finished ( by Fenny West)

It Is Finished,

Completed,

Accomplished,

Done by the Son. 

It is a done deal. 

He did it once and for all. 

He did all He could do-

All that is necessary. 

And He did it for you. 

No need to beg or cry. 

What the law could not do,

What the blood of bulls and goats could not do, Jesus did; the blood of the eternal covenant did. 

There is now, no more condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. The old has gone and the New has come. All things are yours. You are an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. Everything He accomplished was for you, in regard to your health, supply, support, family, finance, relationships, ministry, purpose, and assignment. 

It’s time to appropriate. 

It’s time to dominate. 

It’s time to meditate. 

It’s time to decree. 

And see it established. 

Use the currency of faith. 

Decree like a king you are. 

Where the Word of a king is, there is power 

Internalise and vocalize the Word with authority. 

Say,… “For He had said,…. therefore I boldly say… “

The lines have fallen for you in pleasant places. You have a goodly heritage. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places. Abraham’s blessings are yours. You are the head and not the tail. You have been daily loaded with benefits to enjoy. You are a citizen of Zion. You have been healed by His stripes. You have been brought into a wealthy place.. Say to yourself:”Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not His benefits. 

He has forgiven me all my sins;

Healed me of all my diseases ;

Redeemed my life from destruction;

Crowned me with love and compassion;

Satisfied my mouth with good things

So that my youth is renewed like the Eagle 🦅 

I am blessed in the city and in the countryside. I am blessed in my going out and in my coming in. Whatever  I lay my hands to do is blessed. I am a blessing to God, Church, my family, my community and my generation, even generations to come. Christ in me, my hope of glory. 

There is a Place By Me ( by Fenny West)

There is a place by Me,

Where peace is well-assured;

 Where thieves cannot break in

 And steal, damn and kill.

   

 There is a place of power;

The Place of My presence;

 Where you see My Face;

 A place of great grace.

The place is very special,

 For those who make Me special.

 In this place, you hear My voice,

 To drown all the limiting noise.

 This place provides a rock.

It is hewn from the Great Rock;

 A place where you can hide;

A place where you can feed.

This place brings strength.

 This place brings filling;

 A place of open heaven,

 Where there is no limitation.

 The world disdains this place;

My Word adorns this place.

This is a refining furnace;

 To make you shine all of your days.

My place is a place of glory,

 That will change your story.

There I will weave Myself into you;

And pour my oil upon you.

This place will place you high;

 This place will bring you nigh;

This place will separate you;

Bless you, beautify and launch you.

 More beautiful than Eden;

A place of purpose and vision;

Great garden, divine haven.

Obscure, yet laden with gem.

 Trade your gold for this place!

 Sell your shares and land for this place.

This is a place of sacrifice;

Pay the price to get the Prize.

This is a place of authority;

A place to trade labour for favour;

 From My light, you will see light,

To go and light the lives of men.

This is a place of integrity;

A place of great intimacy;

I in you and you in Me.

I, dining with you and you with Me.

 Come to the place of visitation;

I stretch My Hand of invitation.

 Come for great transformation;

 Come for mammoth rejuvenation.

 This is a place of inspiration;

The Place of New Creation;

A place second to none;

Reach out. What are you waiting for?!

 (…there is place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock Ex33:21)

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.
2 Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.
3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.
Ps5:1-3

1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
Ps42:1-2

4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORDPs27:4-6

35 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
Mark1:35

 The LORD said to my Lord, ” Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ‘
Mark12:36

“Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.
42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”Luke10:41-42

Paul

10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Phil3:10-11

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,
16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,
17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. Gsl1:15-17

All Things Are Possible (4)( by Fenny West)

All Things Are Possible (4)

All Things Are Possible
No matter how it looks.
We look not at what’s seen
But at what is unseen.
What seen is passing
The seen is temporal,
Bu the unseen is eternal.

All things are possible,
When you expect a breakthrough,
No matter the struggles.
Who can be against you
When the Lord is with you?
So command that mountain
And see it move; see it give way.

Soaring Like an Eagle (by Fenny West)

Soaring Like an Eagle

Soaring like an eagle
By the Spirit’s power
And scaling all hurdles
Even in my zero hour.

Going from glory to glory
And from strength to strength
Carried by the grace of the Holy
Saved by grace through faith.

Mounting up to surmount
Every stumbling block
Drinking from the holy fount
My Source, Strength, and Rock.

Glowing and growing in grace
Eating the delicatessen of His Word
Delighting daily to see His face
Assured of His faithfulness-my reward.

 

31   But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

Isa40:31

10   ” He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.

11   As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,

12   So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.

13   ” He made him ride in the heights of the earth, That he might eat the produce of the fields; He made him draw honey from the rock, And oil from the flinty rock;

Deut32:10-13

Psalms 103: Praise for the LORD’s Mercies A Psalm  of David.

1     Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2     Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

3     Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,

4     Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5              Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.Ps103:1-5

All Things are Possible

All things are possible to those who believe 

I have prayed the Word and I will see 

The word of God is so sure, settled in heaven

It will accomplish that which pleases Him 

 

I believe and I will see

I believe and I have received

I believe and so I speak

My confession will bring a manifestation 

If God says yes who can say no? 

 

By two unchangeable things
It is impossible for God to lie
His promises are yes and amen in Christ Jesus
The Word gone out from His mouth

will not return to Him empty. 

 

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark9:23

Easter

Grace or Grass (by Fenny West)

Grace or Grass
It’s your choice.
But choose well
And rejoice.

Grace or grass
It’s your call.
You can’t pass.
Choose wisely.

Grace or grass
You decide

Raise your class

Ditch your pride.

Narrow’s the way

That leads to life

Broad’s the way

That leads to death.

Follow the Way

Follow the Truth

Refuse to stray

Follow the Life.

The grass is for the ass

But be wise as the serpent

Choose life and live

Great joy comes when you repent.

 

19   I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;

Deut30:19

The Parable of the Lost Coin

8     “Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?

9     And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’

10   Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. Eph2:8-9

17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

The Parable of the Lost Son

11   Then He said: “A certain man had two sons.

12   And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.‘ So he divided to them his livelihood.

13   And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.

14   But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.

15   Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

16   And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

17   “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

18   I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,

19   and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ‘

20   “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.

21   And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

22   “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.

23   And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;

24            for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

31   So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

32   Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.

33   And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.

34   Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.

Acts16:31-34

A Vital Church Grows

40   And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”

41   Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

42   And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Acts2:40-42

3     Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

John3:3

9     that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

10   For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Ro10:9-10

Wage War with the Word ( by Fenny West)

Wage War with the Word

Waging war with the Word
Is the preserve and domain
of the New Creation;

he who is born again,

born from above,

born of the Spirit,

 born of the Word.


Waging war with the Word
is the inheritance of the chosen generation,

the royal priesthood, those who hail from Zion,

 those who are kings and priests of God.

Indeed, Where the Word of the king is,

 there is power-tremendous  power

, dynamic power, preponderant power,

 prevalent power, resurrection,

creative, and innovative power.

We speak the mind of God,

take sides with God.

 Our minds are renewed with the Word of God,

which is the will of God. 
We decree a thing and it stands.

We command and it comes into being.

 We do not consider lying vanities

 as to forsake our mercies.

 We speak the mysteries of God.

We do not come with the enticing words of man’s wisdom

 but with the demonstration of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

We demonstrate the spiritual power of God with the dynamic,

  living, operative and razor-sharp Word of God.

We know we wrestle not against flesh and blood

But against principalities and powers and wicked spirits.

That is why we wage war with the Word of God and the sword of the Spirit.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but have divine power to pull down strongholds, casting down every imagination that militates against the revealed will of God.

We wage war with words because as He is, so we are. We speak what we hear Him speak. Our words are not our own but His won and it will not return to Him empty. It will accomplish that which He pleases, prosper in the thing it has been sent to do.

We speak words of life, health, peace, love, prosperity, unity. And as we do the glory of the latter house surpasses the former and we go from glory to glory and from strength to strength.

Fight the Good Fight

18   This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19      having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,

 1Tim1:18

12   Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1Tim6:12

The Whole Armor of God

10   Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

11   Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12   For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13   Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14   Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15   and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16   above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

17   And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

18   praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints —

Eph6:10-18

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Pro18:21

28            You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways

29   When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

 Job22:29

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James3:9-12

8     The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

 Isa40:8

20   My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.

21   Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22   For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.

23   Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

24   Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.

 Prov4:20-24
