Touched with my hands ūüĎź

Saw with my eyes

Embraced the Great prize

Of the year 2018

An August visitation

Promotion and divine intervention

On an August occasion.

The Land of the Lord

The Land of the Word

The Word that was God

That was in the beginning

That was with the Father.

The Land of the Word that was made flesh

And dwelt amongst us to refresh.

The Holy Land, a wonder to behold

A Land of hills and valleys

Beautiful citadels and cities on hills

Oh, how it mesmerized and thrilled!

My eyes beheld Jerusalem;

Drank the waters of Nazareth;

Trod the streets of Haifa,

Karmi El, Galilee, Kinesereth.

Beheld¬†Mount Gilboa, Negev desert ūüŹú

Touched down on River Jordan;

Reflected the dark days

of the Holocaust in Nahariya.

Prayed at the Knesset-seat of Government.

Fascinating, breathtaking

Awe-inspiring, extraordinary!

And what shall I say about the Dead Sea?

Medicinal, yet has no life – like no other

Preserves and serves like no other.

Shalom Jerusalem!

Shalom the City of David.

Now I know why you are so coveted.

Shalom Israel

The Land the fool hates

The Land the wise loves

The Land of Olives and dates

The Land the Lord loves

The Land flowing with milk and honey.

The wailing Wall wailed with its quarters

Life-less religion still holding sway

But coming is the Day of the Way

Coming is  New Jerusalem

Where Jesus will reign with His own.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

Watch Your Words (By Fenny West)

Watch Your Words

5¬†¬†¬†¬† Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

6¬†¬†¬†¬† So we may boldly say: ” The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Heb13:5-6

21            Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit Prov18:21

Watch Your Words

Can make or Mar. 

Side with the Lord 

Hold on to His Word

Be it near or far. 

There is appointed time

A season for everything 

Delay is no denial

It’s only a¬†trial¬†

To engineer your triumph. 

Forsake not your mercies,

Your Promised Land-

The Land flowing with milk and honey;

The Land that is more than money. 

Forsake not your allotted plot

Your breakthrough,

Your inheritance. 

Be not like Esau who threw 

away his birthright for a pot of stew. 

He regretted his bad decision and could not turn back the hand of the clock. 

Be not like those who though out of Egypt, still had Egypt in them. 

“Come out from among them and be separate, sanctified, set apart for the Master’s use.”¬†

Speak no more like a babe. 

“When I was a babe I spoke as one. But when I became an adult I put childish things away. “1Cor13:11

As a man thinks so is he. Think the thoughts of God. Speak the words of God. Say what God has said about you. “For He has said… therefore I can boldly say… “

Be not ensnared by your own words, but be liberated by your words. Be edified by your words and let others be edified by your words. Let your words be seasoned with salt, wholesome, empowering, inspiring, comforting, assuring, faith-filled. Prov6:2, Eph4:29

Be not like the ten spies who failed the test and spoke out of turn. 

“Let us go back to Egypt. It would have been better for us to remain slaves. The people in the land are stronger than us. We are not able to overcome them. The land eats up its inhabitants. We were as grasshoppers in our eyes and so were we in their eyes. ” Num13:27-28,31-33

They saw through the enemies’ eyes and not through God’s¬†eyes. They magnified the problem and minimised and undermined the promise.¬†

They spoke doubt and unbelief and cause many to wail and go down with them to an early grave.

13            And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance.Josh14:12

Be like Joshua and Caleb who saw possibility in spite¬†of the¬†giants. They¬†knew the giants they saw were a test of their faith and they spoke what they believed and not what they felt or saw. And God was pleased with them. They saw the giants as bread to them and so they turned out to be. They said “If the Lord delight in us, He will give us the Land.” And He gave them the land.¬†

Caleb, after 45 years had passed, still held on to the promise and reminded Joshua when it was the time to distribute the land

Watch what you say

Take a leaf from Caleb:

Joshua 14:7

“Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.”

Joshua 14:8

“Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.”

Joshua 14:9

“And Moses swore on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s forever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.”

Joshua 14:10

“And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spoke this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.”

Joshua 14:11

“As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.”

Joshua 14:12

“Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spoke in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.”

Joshua 14:13

“And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an Inheritance.¬†

Joshua 14

“Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.

Jos14:7-13

You will not miss your Hebron, regardless of the passage of time.

¬†Does the vision tarry? Wait for it and at the appointed time it shall speak and not lie. It shall not delay a single¬†day. Say like Job,”I will wait until my change comes.”

27¬†¬† Why do you say, O Jacob, And speak, O Israel: ” My way is hidden from the LORD, And my just claim is passed over by my God”?

28   Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

29   He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.

30   Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,

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.isa40:27-31

15   My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.

11   He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.Ps31:15

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.Prov18:21

35   A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.

36   But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

37¬†¬† For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

think as God thinks. Speak as He speaks. He calls those thinks which be not as though they are. He called Abraham father of many nations before he had one child.

See yourself and call yourself Good Success despite the failure or seeming failure you see in the natural. See through the eyes of God and assure yourself that God does not make failures or sponsor flops. Your time is coming. You will give thanks. You will give praise.

If you have spoken out of turn , you can reverse it from today and start speaking in line with the Word of God.

Start acknowledging the good things God has done and is doing in your life. Give Him thanks and praise for His mercies and faithfulness.

Matt12:35-37

Proverbs 23:7 New King James Version (NKJV)

7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
‚ÄúEat and drink!‚Ä̬†he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.

We have the mind of Christ. We speak the mind of God.

We do not focus on lying vanities, ‚ÄúYea, had God said?‚ÄĚ

5¬†¬†¬†¬† Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

6¬†¬†¬†¬† So we may boldly say: ” The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Heb13:5-6

6              But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.Heb8:6

Hold Fast Your Confession

19   Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,

Prov15:44 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

Mark11:2323 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Josh1:88 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Isa5510-1110 ” For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Mum23:1919 ” God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

James3:4-54 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!

Jonah 2:8-10 King James Version (KJV)

8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.

10 And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

When Job began to give thanks rather than lament his condition- observe lying vanities, God commanded the fish to spit him out.

As you despite your present predicament, impasse, limitation, challenge…. Begin to see what God has done for you and His faithfulness and mercy, He will command your condition to spit you out into your promised Land. Watch your words.

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

Watch Your Words

Can make or Mar. 

Side with the Lord 

Hold on to His Word

Be it near or far. 

There is appointed time

A season for everything 

Delay is no denial

It’s only a¬†trial¬†

To engineer your triumph. 

Forsake not your mercies,

Your Promised Land-

The Land flowing with milk and honey;

The Land that is more than money. 

Forsake not your allotted plot

Your breakthrough,

Your inheritance. 

The ten spies brought an evil report and caused many to wail in the camp. They took many with them to an early grave. This will not be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.

If you have spoken out of turn before you will reverse it from today and say what has said about you – not what you feel or what people or the enemy says about you. You will call those things which be not as though they are, just like God would do. You will take sides with the Lord and see through His eyes and not through the eyes of your adversaries. Your words will be spirit and life. You will not miss your Hebron, in Jesus’ Name.

Salvation: As Simple As ABC ( by Fenny West)

Salvation is as simple as A, B, C

It is not a product of what you do but what has been done on Calvary’s Cross.

Jesus paid the price for you and I. It is a free gift of life- not of works, lest any should boast.

Only Jesus can save- not good works.

All you need to do is to surrender your life to Jesus.

How?

Acknowledge that You are a sinner by nature and all your righteousness is not good enough to save you.

(Going to church does not make you a Christian- In fact, Jesus did not come to make us Christians but He came to make us disciples- followers of Him. Being born in a barn does not make you a sheep.

Believe that He died for you- for your justification and redemption and salvation.

Confess Jesus as Lord of Your life. Commit your life to Him. Call on Him to come and take His rightful place ‚Äď at the centre of your heart.

Pray this simple prayer:

Father, I come this day to your throne of Grace.

I acknowledge that I cannot save myself; only Jesus can, and He has done the deed on the cross when He died.

I accept that perfect sacrifice, even now.

Come into to my life, Lord Jesus and take your rightful place. You said whoever comes to you, will not be turned away. It is also written, ‚ÄúAs many as received Him, He gave the power to become children of God.‚ÄĚ

You said in your Word, with the heart one believes and is made righteous and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

I believe with my heart that Jesus is my Saviour and my Lord. I confess Him as Lord of my life from this day.

I am born again. The old has gone and the new has come. I am a New Creation. The Life of God is now resident in me. I have passed from death unto life.

Thank You, Lord, for saving me.

I thank God I am born again.

Use the form below to record your salvation today. Note that you have been born from above. Make a good note of this date. You may not feel different, but your salvation is not based on feelings. It is based on the truth of the Word of God.

Thank God, I am Born Again!

I ————————————————–

On the ———– of —————

Acknowledged that:

I was a sinner, in need of a Saviour and that only Jesus can save me (Eph2:8-9).

Believed that:

Jesus died in my place, took my sin away and bridged the gap between me and God.

(2Corinthians5:21, 1Peter1:18-19, John1:29, Romans 8:1-2, Romans5:1)

Confessed Jesus as my Lord and Saviour and invited Him to come into my life. (Romans10:9-10,13)

And as a result of this quality decision:

I was born again, the old went and the new came, according to the scriptures

(2Corinthians 5:17, John3:3,8, John1:12, John6:37, Revelation3:20,).

My name was written in the book of life

I am now part of the Body of Christ ‚Äďthe Church -looking forward to His return.

I am now a child of God and a citizen of heaven.

The Holy Spirit is my Helper, Standby, Teacher, Comforter, Strengthener and Guide.

( John16,13,14,17)

God is not just my God, He is my Father in heaven.

I do not have religion but a relationship with Him

Thank you, Jesus, for saving me.

Help me, Lord to live and shine for you.

Signed————————————————

Do me a favour by letting me know You have committed your life to Christ. I want to rejoice with you and help you to grow in grace to maturity. God bless you richly.

 

Super-abundantly Supplied ( By Fenny West)

Super-abundantly Supplied

Father, I thank You for making me an heir of God and joint – heir with Christ. Everything that belongs to Him belongs to me. All He accomplished through His crucifixion and resurrection, He accomplished for me.

 

Therefore, I refuse to short-change myself in any respect. I am a lender and not a borrower. I make wise investments and get involved in lucrative businesses that bring mammoth yield. I have the wisdom to deal wisely in all I do. 

Everything I lay my hands to do prospers to the glory of God. 

The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want. He leads me to green pastures and still waters and I am well fed and my thirst is quenched. He supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

I thank You, Father, for Your word says that even though Christ was Rich, yet for my sake, He became poor, so that I might through His poverty will become rich in all things. I praise You, Lord God Almighty that I am rich and a possessor of all good things. You daily load me, lavish me with benefits to enjoy. No good will you withhold from me because I walk in your word and your will. 

You prepare a banquet, a sumptuous sup, a table full of delicatessen for me, even in the presence of my enemies and my cup overflows. 

Surely, goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life. 

Thank You, Father, for Your Son, Jesus, who came to give me life and life to the full-abundant life. I will live this life to your glory. I walk in Your pathway always. I walk in the light of Your Word always and favour surrounds me as a shield. Wherever I go, favour follows me. I am the Head and not the tail. The boundary lines fall for me in pleasant places because, in Christ, I have a goodly heritage. 

When others are saying there is depression or famine or drought, I am saying, the Lord is so good to me, there is provision, promotion, prosperity, lifting up, abundance, increase; there is supernatural Supply, there is an unending supply.

You did it for Abraham and Isaac and You are doing it for me. I fix my eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith. He is working everything together for my good because I love Him and I am the called according to purpose. 

It is a joy to be a giver because You said it is more blessed to give than to receive. Therefore, I give from what You have given. I give generously and cheerfully. I give willingly. I give to You and to those in need. I give as You lead and guide. And as I give, it is given back to me, pressed down, good measure, and running over. I sow on good grounds as a sower who goes out weeping, carrying precious seeds to Sow. Your word says such a person will doubtless return with a great harvest. Thank You, Lord, for my abundant, great and superfluous harvest. 

Reigning in Life ( By Fenny West)

Reigning in Life

Reigning in Life-

Yes, in this life, 

With the Word of Life, 

Is your endowment

Your entitlement 

And it’s for empowerment.¬†

Using the abundance of grace

Wherever you go-in any place

To show forth the praises of the King

And glorifying Him in everything 

Is what He always requires; 

This is His cardinal desire. 

So let nothing or no one quench your fire. 

Shake off the sackcloth, get out of the mire

Take the Holy Ghost mantle and reign. 

Reign when it shines, and reign when it rains. 

As a city on a hill, that cannot be hidden, reign. 

Know that the Greater One in-dwells you. 

He is in you to work for you and through you. 

Take away and debunk every limitation

Mount up to surmount every intimidation 

Rise up and defeat every opposition

Keep your focus regardless of distractions. 

You are more than a conqueror. 

Use the Holy Ghost power in store. 

Rise, Reign, and rule in Jesus’ Name.¬†

Know He has a Name above all names

And has called you to reign with Him. 

Fear no foe as you speak for Him

Go even where angels dread

Because He called you to be the head. 

17For 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.)Rom5:17

8¬†¬†¬†¬† But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”Acts1:8

14   Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2Cor2:14

57   But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Cor15:57

19   Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you luke10:19

I Dwell In Him (by Fenny West)

I dwell in Him; in the secret place of the Most High. I abide under the shadow of the Almighty. My abode is Christ. Therefore no harm shall befall me; no disaster shall come near my resting place. 

He is my peace-Shalom, serenity, assurance and security. So I will fear no evil. He is with me, in me and for me. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. When the enemy comes, like a flood, the Holy Spirit will raise a standard against him. 

I will say of the Lord, “You are my Refuge and my Fortress. You are my hiding place, my rock, my shield, shelter and bulwark.”¬†

So when I go through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, because Jehovah Shammah, the Ever-present Lord, is always there. I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the plaque that walks the street at noonday. 

His Spirit is in me forever. He keeps in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. 

When I go through the fire,  I know I am just walling through and the flame will not kindle upon me. I shall not be burnt. I know my Redeemer lives and is refining me, eliminating every dross, for the gold in me to surface to the glory of God. 

And when I go through the waters and the rivers, I shall not drown because the Everlasting Arms are underneath and the eternal God is my refuge. He loves me with an Everlasting love. I am the apple of His eyes. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. I am more than a conqueror and have overcome the world. 

Surely, my God shields me from the flower’s snares, loopholes, traps and ploys. I have wisdom more than my adversaries. I am streets ahead of my foes and enemies.¬†

My God prepares a banquet of sumptuous sup, divine dainties and delicatessen for me, right before my enemies and my cup overflows. 

Yes, because I have made Christ, my dwelling place, no harm will befall me. No disaster will come near my house. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand. But the evil will not come near me. Only with my eyes will I see the punishment of the wicked. 

Praise the Lord, Who has given His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. They are ministering spirits called to be minister to me, an heir of salvation. Therefore I will tread on the lion and the cobra under my feet -where they belong. 

Because I have given Christ first place, set Him as my first love, He will honour me and set me high above the rock. Before I call, He will hear and while I am still praying, He will answer. I acknowledge His holy, powerful and matchless Name Above every other name. With long life of health, vitality, abundance and relevance and productivity He will satisfy me and show me His salvation. 

Rise to a New Dimension ( by Fenny West)

rise to a new dimension(2) 

Rise to a New Dimension
Defy all odds to fulfill vision.
If God be for you,
Who can be against you?
Sleeping giant awake.
You’ve got all that it takes.
Drink from the Holy fountain
And rise to move every mountain ‚õį.
Use your God-given authority
with impunity and audacity.
Arise and take territories.
Arise and mount up like an Eagle ūü¶Ö
Put paid to every struggle.
You are more than a conqueror.
You are an overcomer.
