Possessing Your Possession ( by Fenny West)

Possessing Your Possession

Commences when you decree

The Word Like a king.

 

For where the word of the King

is there is power.

  1. Where the word of a king is, there is power; And who may say to him, “What are you doing?” Eccle8:4

” But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, And there shall be holiness; The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. Obad1:17

Open Doors from Quarantine ( 1) ( by Fenny West)

Open Doors from Quarantine ( 1)

41   And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42   Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43   And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44   Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

45   And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt. Gen41:41-45

 

An open door awaits the child of God, who trusts in Him, depends on Him. He did it for Joseph. He can do it for you too. Just maintain your excellence, reliability integrity and purity. No matter the opposition, it will turn out to be an opportunity for your promotion and even an unprecedented open door.

Joseph had a big dream but as he innocently told his family, he ran into trouble. Whilst his father hid the matter in his heart, his brothers not only envied him but hated him and his guts (Gen 37:6-7). However he had the audacity to dream again despite their initial disgust and dismay and outrage (Gen 37 :9). The interpretations of the dreams were in no doubt: they would be subservient to him (Gen 37:8). The preferential treatment he got from his dad compounded issues. He specially tailored a coat of many colours for him as daddy’s pet. He knew it. His dad knew it. They knew it. ( Gen37:3) And so they wanted to put his light out at the earliest opportunity. They wanted that dream dead and buried.

The opportunity came when Jacob sent Joseph on errand, to go see if they were alright in the forest. When they saw him from afar they said, “Behold, the dreamer comes. Let’s kill him and see what will come of the dream.” V19

Soon they proceeded with their clandestine and wicked plan. Joseph was stripped of his coat and dumped in a dish awaiting execution. Then one of his brothers pleaded for him.” “Let’s sell him and make some money instead of killing him. V 22
Some traders emerged and the transaction was completed and Joseph was sold away as a slave. He ended up in Egypt, bought by an army officer – Potiphar. V25-28

God was with Joseph and caused him to excel and have favour with his master. He served his master so well that he left everything in his charge. He knew that Joseph was God – fearing and he was being blessed on account of Joseph’s presence. The success of Joseph was astounding. Gen 39:1-3

Meanwhile, Potiphar’s wife lusted after Joseph because of his good looks and build. She constantly pestered him to make love to her but Joseph refused, considering it a great wickedness, more so in view of his standing with his master. But she would not stop.
One day when he entered her room to do his chores, she grabbed him and tried to force him to make love to her against his will. Joseph refused her overtures to compromise his purity and integrity and ran away, leaving his coat with her. Gen 39:7-13

She screamed and wailed to attract the attention of the neighbours accusing Joseph of attempted rape. Joseph denied it but it was her word against his. His master believed her, albeit reluctantly, and Joseph was sent to prison. What a sad day it was! Talk of bad things happening to good people.

However, even in prison, Joseph displayed his excellent and exceptional character. This brought favour and an opening for him to be made an overseer of other prisoners. (Gen.39:20-23)

Do you have a dream that has been oppose or barricaded by circumstances? Have you found yourself in quarantine despite your good deeds, integrity and purity?  Have you lost your job as a result of the lock down from CORONA19 ? Or are you imprisoned at home but working from home and wondering when all this lock down would end? If so maintain your character and faith in God, wherever you have found yourself. God will give you an open door if your expect it. It could be a door to witness to friends online or from home or a door of promotion as you display excellence and loyalty to your employers even at such desperate times.

In jail Joseph cared for other inmates and that character opened the door for him to be made an overseer. He also noticed the sad countenance of other inmates and inquired what was wrong. They opened up to him-sharing their dreams which he interpreted. They were subsequently released just as he had predicted. He pleaded with one of them not to forget him when he was restored to his former role as a butler to the King. However he forgot him for two years.

Then the King dreams a dream that perplexed him and no one could interpret it. This was when the butler remembered Joseph and told the King about Joseph and how he interpreted his dream and that of his inmate and it came true.

Joseph was summoned to the palace where the king relayed his dream to him. Joseph interpreted the dream: that there would be seven years of plenty in the land and seven years of famine. However the famine would be so severe that the seven years of plenty would be forgotten. He advised the King to look for someone to administer the years of plenty so that they do not starve to death. Gen 41:29-36

The Pharaoh was so impressed that he not only pardoned Joseph, but promoted him from prisoner to Prime Minister.

“See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42   Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43   And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44   Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

45           And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt

What an opening for Joseph!

The Pharaoh gave him a chariot, his ring and a robe and Joseph was feted, honoured all through the land. Within 24 hours his life was completely transformed.  God can do the same in your life, despite your quarantine or lock down. Expect an opening, an opportunity, an open door, a supernatural favour or promotion. Remember, “All things work together for good to those who love God and who are the called according to purpose.” You have to stand on this scripture and ask the Holy Spirit that good thing that He has ordained for you during this lock down. If you seek Him about it earnestly, you will find it.

If you are a writer, expect God to open your eyes to write a best-seller even from what is happening as a result of this unprecedented lock down. If you are a songwriter, it can be a time to write a song that will go viral on all social media platforms. Expect great things from a great God.

Joseph had a dream from God and it appeared everything was working against him, but God allowed those things to bring Joseph to the place of the fulfilment of his dream, assignment and purpose.

Similarly your opposition will bring opportunity, promotion, open doors, acclaim, stupendous success that will resound for many years. And when that opportunity comes, use it to the glory of God. Give your very best. Do not forget where you came from.

Joseph despite not going to a university and studying a degree in finance and economics, excelled in his administration of the food and produce in the time of prosperity and bumper harvest. He sought the face of God who opened the door for him to give him wisdom to manage the plenty in an impressive way so that in the time of famine Egypt became a place where others came for food. Besides, his brothers also wandered into Egypt and were flabbergasted to find that their brother whom they sold was now in charge as the Prime Minister. Joseph, rather than take revenge against them, took care of them. Whilst they trembled, he comforted them, saying it was not their fault. They meant it for evil but God meant it for good to preserve the lives of many in future.

5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.
6 For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting.
7 And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
8 So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Gen 45:5-8

So expect the Supernatural hand of God in your quarantine. God is still the same. Expect your opening, your opportunity, your ‘light –bulb- moment’. It could be a new job opportunity. It could be an opportunity to witness and lead someone or people to Christ. It could be the opening of an online mega-business that makes you a household name or brand. It could be a new skill or sets of skills you develop whilst on lock down that sets you up for life. Make the most this opportunity. The path of the righteous is like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter to the full light of day. (Prov. 4:18)

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; Ps84:5-7

Take this word and mix it with faith and run with it and make this lock down or quarantine work big for you.

The Golden Sceptre of Grace ( by Fenny West

The Golden Sceptre of Grace

 

God will arise and shine on you.
Favour will arise and follow you.
The Glory of God will overshadowed you.
Goodness and mercy will follow you.
Your “Golden Sceptre” will be given to you.
God will smile at you.
The heavenly hosts have fought for you.
Joy unspeakable and full of glory is your due.
So now give thanks and put on your dancing shoes.
The music will soon play for you. 

   
Esther 5:2
“And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favor in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the scepter.”

Favour Will Follow You ( by Fenny West)

Favour will follow You

Israelites Found Favour

You will plunder those who hinder

Because of the favour of God,

Like the Egyptians favoured the Israelites .

 

Exodus 12

36 And the LORD had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.

Exodus 3

21 And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be, when you go, that you shall not go empty-handed.

Exodus 11

3 And the LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.

Leviticus 26

9 ‘ For I will look on you favorably and make you fruitful, multiply you and confirm My covenant with you.

Esther found favour

 

Esther found favour not because she was so beautiful but because of the plan of God to save His people through her.

 

17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

 

When Haman’s wicked plot to exterminate the Jews was revealed, Esther’s great moment came for her to petition the King to spare her people of the impending danger and doom and disaster hanging over their heads. It was favour that opened the door for her to see the face of the King. Despite the odds and the obstacles against you, you too will see the face of the King because of the blood of the eternal covenant.

Esther 5

2 So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the scepter.

 

8 If I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and fulfill my request, then let the king and Haman come to the banquet which I will prepare for them, and tomorrow I will do as the king has said.”

Esther 7
3 Then Queen Esther answered and said, “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request.

Ruth Found Favour

Naomi had lost all her faith following the death of her husband and sons in a foreign land. But Ruth had seen the best of times in the life of Naomi when she had faith. She had been built up and was now used to encourage Naomi. She would not go back to her people but stuck to Naomi and vowed to identify with her people, die where she died and serve her God.

She returned home with Naomi and gradually God turned the table around when Ruth got married to Boaz, a multimillionaire of his time. And what more? She bore a son for him, Obed, who was the father of Jesse, the Father of David, a direct descendant of Christ. So no matter how unqualified you may seem in the venture you have embarked upon, remember how favour located Ruth and transformed her life. God remains the same- yesterday today and forever.

 

Mephibosheth Found Favour

Favour will follow You

Because Your God is faithful and true.

Mephibosheth expected the worst

But God gave him the best:

A place on the table of grace,

Eating as one of the sons of King David.

What a favour! Because covenant spoke for him.

The New covenant established on

better promises will speak for you.

2Sam9: 11 Then Ziba said to the king, “According to all that my lord the king has commanded his servant, so will your servant do.” “As for Mephibosheth,” said the king, “he shall eat at my table like one of the king’s sons.”

 

 

Lot found favour with Abraham

When God called Abraham to leave his father’s house to a place he would show him, Abraham took Lot along with him because of the compassion he had on him, who had lost his father.

Favour will come knocking on your door too despite your handicap and misfortune.

 

Abraham found favour

Abraham had favour with God regarding his intercession for Lot.

21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. Gen19

 

Those who sow the seed of favour often find favour themselves.

David found favour with Jonathan in King Saul’s house. He revealed the plot of King Saul to kill David and enabled him to run away. God will raise someone in the house of your enemies to reveal their sinister plan against you and you will escape unhurt.

 

Joseph found favour in Potiphar’s

Joseph found favour in Potiphar’s house even after being carried away as a slave, despite his shattered grandiose dream.

 Genesis 39

4 So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority.

 

Joseph found favour even in prison

You will find favour in the most unlikely places as you put your trust in the Lord.

All adverse circumstances will work together for your good.

 

21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

Expect favour, give favour and favour will follow you.

 

12 But You, O LORD, shall endure forever, And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Ps102:12-13

Psalms 5
12 For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Psalms 30
5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

7 LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled.

Psalms 35
27 Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, ” Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

His Presence Makes the Difference ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

“Nevertheless I am continually with thee.”
Psalm 73:23

“Nevertheless,”–As if, notwithstanding all the foolishness and ignorance which David had just been confessing to God, not one atom the less was it true and certain that David was saved and accepted, and that the blessing of being constantly in God’s presence was undoubtedly his. Fully conscious of his own lost estate, and of the deceitfulness and vileness of his nature, yet, by a glorious outburst of faith, he sings “nevertheless I am continually with thee.” Believer, you are forced to enter into Asaph’s confession and acknowledgment, endeavour in like spirit to say “nevertheless, since I belong to Christ I am continually with God!” By this is meant continually upon his mind, he is always thinking of me for my good. Continually before his eye;–the eye of the Lord never sleepeth, but is perpetually watching over my welfare. Continually in his hand, so that none shall be able to pluck me thence. Continually on his heart, worn there as a memorial, even as the high priest bore the names of the twelve tribes upon his heart forever. Thou always thinkest of me, O God. The bowels of thy love continually yearn towards me. Thou art always making providence work for my good. Thou hast set me as a signet upon thine arm; thy love is strong as death, many waters cannot quench it; neither can the floods drown it. Surprising grace! Thou seest me in Christ, and though in myself abhorred, thou beholdest me as wearing Christ’s garments, and washed in his blood, and thus I stand accepted in thy presence. I am thus continually in thy favour–“continually with thee.” Here is comfort for the tried and afflicted soul; vexed with the tempest within–look at the calm without. “Nevertheless”–O say it in thy heart, and take the peace it gives. “Nevertheless I am continually with thee.”

Acts5:15-16

They think it’s all over for  you: This man showed up at his funeral

This man had a look alike in the same trade who was shot dead in an incident and was taken to the mortuary. Incidentally news reached the mother of the man you‘re looking at that her son was dead.  The mother was devastated and funeral arrangements were made and he showed up!

They think it’s all over for you? But they ain’t seen nothing yet.

SAO PAULO – A 41-year-old car washer shocked his family when he interrupted a funeral being held for him at his mother’s home in the town of Alagoinhas in northeastern Brazil, police said Tuesday.

Police inspector Roberto Lima said by telephone that on Sunday Jose Marcos Araujo identified a body at the city morgue as being that of his brother, Gilberto.

Lima said that Jose Marcos took the body to his mother’s home where a wake was held.

“The confusion started when news started circulating that a car washer had been shot dead,” Jose Marcos’ wife, Ana Paula, told the UOL Internet news portal. “Police called my husband and told him that his brother had been killed and his body was at the morgue.”

Lima said the confusion was “understandable.”

“The two men closely resembled each other and both worked as car washers,” Lima said adding that the man whose body was in the morgue was named Genivaldo Santos Gama. He said further information on Gama was not immediately available.

A few hours before the Monday burial “a friend of Gilberto’s saw him walking down the street and told him that his family was mourning him,” he said.

“So he went to his mother’s home to let everyone know he was very much alive.”

When Araujo showed up at his wake “some people fainted and others were so scared they ran away. It was a big shock,” family friend Maria Menezes told the G1 online news site.

Gilberto’s mother Marina Santana told reporters “I am overjoyed. What mother wouldn’t be after being told that her son is dead and then sees him alive.”

Your Dream Will Be Challenged

The woman in Shunem was barren

God gave her a pleasant surprise

Rewarded her generosity

At old age she became fruitful

Carried a baby like Sarah

But then came a death knell

It was sudden like a bad spell.

 

Her husband resign his faith

But she set her face like flint

And ran to the man of God.

He asked her, ‘Is it well?’

She answered, ‘It is well!’

‘You must come, I will not go.’

 

Prophet Elisha saw the fire

Etched clearly in her eyes.

He followed her and saw

Her son stone cold dead.

 

He stretched himself

On the boy, eye on eye

And mouth on mouth

and he became warm

Sneezed seven times and woke up.

The dead dream came back to life.

 

Why did the boy die?

Your guess is as good as mine.

 

Your dream will be challenged

Your dream will be opposed

Your dream will be sorely tried

And when it happens, remain resolute

Go to the Dream-Giver in faith

Know that it is not over until He says so

Do not throw in the towel  for the foe.

Roll Away the Stone!

Lazarus was sick to the core.

Death knocked on the door.

Jesus was quickly informed.

But he took His time to come.

 

When He arrived it was over

Lazarus was dead and gone.

Mary and Martha were cross

Disappointed, despondent.

 

He said: ‘Your brother shall rise again.

I am the Resurrection and the Life.’

Where have you laid him?’

 

He prayed: ’Father I thank You…

Because you have heard Me…’

 

They thought it was all over

But Jesus did not think so.

 

Roll away the stone.

Lazarus, come forth!

And Lazarus came forth

 

 

So has your dream died?

Is that dream from God?

If so take to Him in prayer.

There is no need to despair.

No Need to Despair

Widow of Nain met her waterloo

Her only son cruelly taken away

By the cold hand of sudden death.

 

She was in great distraught- all was gone!

Jesus was not far away and saw her.

Compassion flowed ceaseless out of Him.

 

Do not weep He consoled her;

He touched the funeral bier

Pallbearers stood still.

 

Young man, I say to you arise

And the man rose, came back to life.

 

So has your dream died?

Is that dream from God?

If so take to Him in prayer.

There is no need to despair

Luke7:11-15

Tabitha (Dorcas) abounding in good works

 Fell ill and surprisingly was snatched by death

It came like a wicked thief in the night

So quickly it snuffed out the light.

Darkness fell as the curtain fell

Why it happened no one could tell.

Peter was not far from the scene

And they begged him to come

Showing him her handiwork

Crying, pleading, sobbing

Peter, put them out

to avoid doubt.

 

‘Tabitha, get up!’ He commanded

Her eyes were opened and she rose

And so were the drooping spirits raised.

Great joy greeted the house.

Elation emotion erupted

Dead dream had come alive!

 

 

 

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts%209:36-42&version=AMP

 

Jesus came to save the sin-sick

Abandoned His seat in glory

To do the Father’s will

‘Here I come, send Me’ He said.

 

He came to His own but they disdained Him

They vilified Him and crucified Him

He was dead and buried, it seemed all over.

 

But on the third day He rose again

Defeating death just like He said.

 

He remains, the Resurrection and the Life

And holds the keys of death and Hades.

 

He has the final say about your dream

And about my dream and His will shall be done.

 

They think it’s all over for you? But they ain’t seen nothing yet.

10 And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

11 Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the LORD had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.

12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.

13 He also had seven sons and three daughters.

14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch.

15 In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.

16 After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations.

17 So Job died, old and full of days. Job42:10-17

John 5: A Man Healed at the Pool of Bethesda

1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.

5 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”

7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”

18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”

19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.

20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,

21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

Rom4

Genesis 21: Isaac Is Born

1 And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken.

2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him — whom Sarah bore to him — Isaac.

4 Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.

5 Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

6 And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”

7 She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”

9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.

Joseph’s Rise to Power

37 So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants.

38 And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?”

39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you.

40 You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.”

41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43 And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44 Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

Gen41

13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. Ps102:13

It was hopeless for Hannah, Elizabeth , Rachel and Rebekah, Manaoh and his wife but God remembered them. God will remember you too! it was hopeless for Jabez but God turned his table around for good. God will turn your table too. Call on Him. Trust in Him. Hope in the God of Hope. The God who made Barabara smile at 70 will make you smile too. The God who gave laughter (Isaac) to Abraham and Sarah when it seemed hopeless will give you laughter too.

The spell is broken!

Redemption in Christ

3     Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

4     just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,

5     having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

6     to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

7     In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

8     which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,

Eph1:3-8,

17   that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18   the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19   and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

 

2Pet

2     Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

3     as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

4     by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2Pet1:2-4

 

 

Romans 8: Free from Indwelling Sin

1     There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

2     For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom8:1-2

17   Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

20                                                                                                                                        Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 2Cor5:17

9     But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

10   who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1Pet2:9-10

4     You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

4     For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.

1John4:4

4     But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

5     even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

6     and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7     that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

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.

 

10   For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Eph2:10

 

9     For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 1Cor3:9

12   giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

13   He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

14   in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Col1

Ephesians 2: By Grace Through Faith

1                                                                                                                                          And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins

 

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.

Dead Dreams Shall Live!

Dead Dreams Shall Live!

joseph pit test

Dead Dreams Must Live
Not because I say so
But because Jesus says so
Because He is the Resurrection and the Life
He died and rose to give my dead dream life
There is no situation that is hopeless with Him
With God all things, yes, ALL things are possible
Lazarus was dead for four days and now stank
Jesus Christ of Nazareth, arrived on the scene
An turned the hopeless situation around
Roll away the stone!
Lazarus, come forth!
And Lazarus came forth.
And even when he had risen
the grave clothes contained him
Jesus then gave the command,
‘Loose him and let him go!’
He was loosed, set free
Completely, unfettered.
By the resurrection power
By the anointing that breaks yokes
By the power of the Holy Ghost
And because Jesus Christ remains
the same, Yesterday, Today and Forever
My dead dreams today will live!
He triumphed over death and Hades
He has the final say concerning my dreams.
Because He lives, I will not die but live
To declare the works of the Lord.
Because He lives, my dreams will live.
Joseph had a dream and they hated him for it.

They threw him into the pit sold him into slavery.
He ended up in Potiphar’s house as a servant.
Then he was tempted and despite passing the test,
He was maligned and thrown into the dungeon.

His dream was dead, as it were, but he trusted God,
And kept on interpreting dreams for others.
And in the fullness of time, God remembered Joseph.
He was raised from the dungeon to become the
The key man, the Prime Minister of Egypt
His dead dream was raised from the dead.
Glory be to God who raises dead dreams.
The woman in Shunem had a Son at the set time
According to the word of the Prophet, Elisha.
But one day the boy sneezed and died
Her husband was old, and this was her
Only son, her dream, the Apple of her eyes
She immediately saddled a donkey
And headed for the village of the prophet
The prophet saw her from afar and knew there
Was a problem but he could not tell what it was.
She would not let go of him until he followed her back.
He arrive her home to find the dead dream- the boy.
He agonised in prayer and the boy came alive!
Ha! Dead dream must come alive, in Jesus’ Name.
The widow of Nain had only one son, who died.
Jesus met the burial procession and was compassionate. ‘Put the Casket down,’ He told them, and raised the boy. There was celebraton and jubilation all over that village
The woman with the issue of blood was dead but walking
All her hopes dashed as her condition grew worse.
But Jesus came into town and she dared to believe
In the resurrection of her hopes for total deliverance.
Despite the throng of people that discouraged her
She refused to yield but pressed through to touch Jesus.
And with the touch of faith the blood issue dried up.
Her dead dream was raised from the dead, Glory!
For thirty eight years he waited and waited and waited
At the pool of Bethesda, hoping to have a chance
To get first into the pool when the angel stirred the water.
But he was disappointed again and again. His dream died.
Then Jesus showed up one day and raised his dream.
Ezekiel was in the Valley of dry bones surrounded by deadness.

Then God asked him, Son of man, shall these bones live?

Ezekiel was smart and answered, ‘Lord, Thou knowest.’
God commanded him to prophesy to the bones to come to their bones. He prophesied for flesh, sinews and muscle to come on the bones. All these happened just like he prophesied,
but their was no life in the bodies. God commanded him to prophesy to the four winds. He did and breath came into the dead bodies and there arose a mighty army,
to the Glory of God. Dead dream lived.
The God who did all these remains the same.
He said ,’I am the Lord, I change not.’
‘Behold I am the Lord God of all flesh
Is there anything too hard for me?’
Jesus said, ‘Behold, I am He that was dead.
But now I am alive and alive forevermore.’
He said I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me though he was dead
Yet shall he live;

so my dead dream will live!
So is your dream dead?
Has your vision vanished?
Even though you have believed
In the Resurrection and the Life?
Bring it to Jesus. Tell Him how it is.
Believe that He is compassionate.
Believe that He has the power.
Reach out and touch Him
With the touch of faith.
And your dream will live!
Say this with me:
My dream will live
Because Jesus is alive!
He is the resurrection and the life.
My God is able to do exceeding
Abundantly, more than I can ask or dream
For eye has not seen, ear has not heard
neither has it entered the heart of man
What God has in store for those who love Him.

The Resurrection
1On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7’The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8Then they remembered his words.
9When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. 11But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.

John 11:16-18 (New International Version)
16Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”
Jesus Comforts the Sisters
17On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18Bethany was less than two miles[a] from Jerusalem,

37But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”
Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
38Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39″Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

John 11:42-44 (New International Version)
42I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
John11:17,18,37-39,42-44

Joseph
23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe—the richly ornamented robe he was wearing- 24 and they took him and threw him into the cistern. Now the cistern was empty; there was no water in it.
28 So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels [b] of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.
16 She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she told him this story: “That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me. 18 But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.”
19 When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger. 20 Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined.

Joseph in Charge of Egypt
41 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.” 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, [c] and men shouted before him, “Make way [d] !” Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.
44 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, but without your word no one will lift hand or foot in all Egypt.” 45 Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah and gave him Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, [e] to be his wife. And Joseph went throughout the land of Egypt. Gen41

The Shunammite’s Son Restored to Life
8 One day Elisha went to Shunem. And a well-to-do woman was there, who urged him to stay for a meal. So whenever he came by, he stopped there to eat. 9 She said to her husband, “I know that this man who often comes our way is a holy man of God. 10 Let’s make a small room on the roof and put in it a bed and a table, a chair and a lamp for him. Then he can stay there whenever he comes to us.”
11 One day when Elisha came, he went up to his room and lay down there. 12 He said to his servant Gehazi, “Call the Shunammite.” So he called her, and she stood before him. 13 Elisha said to him, “Tell her, ‘You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you? Can we speak on your behalf to the king or the commander of the army?’ ”
She replied, “I have a home among my own people.”
14 “What can be done for her?” Elisha asked.
Gehazi said, “Well, she has no son and her husband is old.”
15 Then Elisha said, “Call her.” So he called her, and she stood in the doorway. 16 “About this time next year,” Elisha said, “you will hold a son in your arms.”
“No, my lord,” she objected. “Don’t mislead your servant, O man of God!”
17 But the woman became pregnant, and the next year about that same time she gave birth to a son, just as Elisha had told her.
18 The child grew, and one day he went out to his father, who was with the reapers. 19 “My head! My head!” he said to his father.
His father told a servant, “Carry him to his mother.” 20 After the servant had lifted him up and carried him to his mother, the boy sat on her lap until noon, and then he died. 21 She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and went out.
22 She called her husband and said, “Please send me one of the servants and a donkey so I can go to the man of God quickly and return.”
23 “Why go to him today?” he asked. “It’s not the New Moon or the Sabbath.”
“It’s all right,” she said.
24 She saddled the donkey and said to her servant, “Lead on; don’t slow down for me unless I tell you.” 25 So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, “Look! There’s the Shunammite! 26 Run to meet her and ask her, ‘Are you all right? Is your husband all right? Is your child all right?’ ”
“Everything is all right,” she said.
27 When she reached the man of God at the mountain, she took hold of his feet. Gehazi came over to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone! She is in bitter distress, but the LORD has hidden it from me and has not told me why.”
28 “Did I ask you for a son, my lord?” she said. “Didn’t I tell you, ‘Don’t raise my hopes’?”
29 Elisha said to Gehazi, “Tuck your cloak into your belt, take my staff in your hand and run. If you meet anyone, do not greet him, and if anyone greets you, do not answer. Lay my staff on the boy’s face.”
30 But the child’s mother said, “As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you.” So he got up and followed her.
31 Gehazi went on ahead and laid the staff on the boy’s face, but there was no sound or response. So Gehazi went back to meet Elisha and told him, “The boy has not awakened.”
32 When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his couch. 33 He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to the LORD. 34 Then he got on the bed and lay upon the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out upon him, the boy’s body grew warm. 35 Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out upon him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.
36 Elisha summoned Gehazi and said, “Call the Shunammite.” And he did. When she came, he said, “Take your son.” 37 She came in, fell at his feet and bowed to the ground. Then she took her son and went out.
2Kings 4:8-36
Jesus Raises a Widow’s Son
11Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. 12As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. Luke 7:11-12
The Valley of Dry Bones
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”
4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath [a] enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’ ”
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Ezek 37:1-10
17When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. Rev1:17-18
