The Way, the Truth and the Life ( by Fenny West)

The Way, the Truth and the Life

He is the Way to the Father

And has a Name like no other.

Besides Him, there is no other

And  He is the Way-Maker.

He is the Truth and testifies of the Truth.

He is Truth personified, faithful and true.

And He is the truth that makes you free.

Through Him those spiritually blind, see.

He is the Life.  Without Him, there’s no life

And He came to give the God-kind of life.

He came to give us a super-abundant life.

He is the key to life. In His life we have life.

And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life1John5:11-12

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John14:6

37 ¶ Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

The Parallel and Paradox … ( by Fenny West)

The Parallel and Paradox of the Wooden Art

https://youtu.be/F7qXKab5S5g

How incredible insightful and instructive!

The Wood artist sees what we do not see
And painstakingly uses his tool to chip off, cut out, carve out, garnish until the beautiful masterpiece emerges out of the wood to our amazement, admiration and wonder.
This is exactly what God sees in you and I. We may look useless on the outside but there is masterpiece waiting to find expression in us.
And as we yield to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God does His miracle of transformation by chipping off, carving out, garnishing, polishing until the masterpiece which was there, emerges for all to see, admire and glorify God for.
Today, yield to the Holy Spirit to work in you as to work through you. See yourself as a masterpiece awaiting manifestation. Yes, often the pruning can be painful, but see the joy ahead, like Jesus and submit yourself to the Master Crafts-Man Who knows your end from the beginning.

: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of the sons of God.  Ro8:19
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph2:10
John15:1} I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. {15:2} Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. {15:3} John15:1-3

1John{3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

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

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. Ps1:1-3

God’s attitude:

2 I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.
Ps138:2
10 ” 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.
Isa55:10-11
The integrity of God
17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath,
18 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
Heb6:17-18
19 ” 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? Num23:19
12 Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”Jer1:12

Jesus and the Word

 Jesus is the living Word
John 1: The Eternal Word
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
John1:1-3
God create through His word and brings about changes in our lives through His word that we accept and hold dear.
Hebrews 1: God’s Supreme Revelation
1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,
2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
Heb1:1-3
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
He gave His word a special place Gen1:3

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John6:63

Jesus gave prime place to the Word

4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ “

Fruitfulness comes from the word and it fuels our prayer; gives us assurance of answered prayers
7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.John15:7-8
The Holy Spirit and the Word
He teaches us the word; makes it come alive; unpacks it for us.
4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1Cor2:4-5
8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
John16:13

God’s counsel about the Word
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.
Proverb4:20-23
Psalms 1: Book One: Psalms 1 — 41 The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly
1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.Ps1:1-3

God’s command about the word

6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.Deut.6:6-7

8 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.

The disciples and the word
2 Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables.
Acts6:2
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.

11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

Oil For the Light ( C.H. Spurgeon)

good success1 arise1 light flicking inspirational light come comforter 1067-003-27-1074 j0236249 CG96 fiery furnace Hebrew three

 

Exodus 25:6

Oil for the light.

My soul, how much thou needest this, for thy lamp will not long continue to burn without it. Thy snuff will smoke and become an offence if light be gone, and gone it will be if oil be absent. Thou hast no oil well springing up in thy human nature, and therefore thou must go to them that sell and buy for thyself, or like the foolish virgins, thou wilt have to cry, “My lamp is gone out.” Even the consecrated lamps could not give light without oil; though they shone in the tabernacle they needed to be fed, though no rough winds blew upon them they required to be trimmed, and thy need is equally as great.

Under the most happy circumstances thou canst not give light for another hour unless fresh oil of grace be given thee. It was not every oil that might be used in the Lord’s service; neither the petroleum which exudes so plentifully from the earth, nor the produce of fishes, nor that extracted from nuts would be accepted; one oil only was selected, and that the best olive oil. Pretended grace from natural goodness, fancied grace from priestly hands, or imaginary grace from outward ceremonies will never serve the true saint of God; he knows that the Lord would not be pleased with rivers of such oil. He goes to the olive-press of Gethsemane, and draws his supplies from Him who was crushed therein. The oil of gospel grace is pure and free from lees and dregs, and hence the light which is fed thereon is clear and bright.

Our churches are the Saviour’s golden candelabra, and if they are to be lights in this dark world, they must have much holy oil. Let us pray for ourselves, our ministers, and our churches, that they may never lack oil for the light. Truth, holiness, joy, knowledge, love, these are all beams of the sacred light, but we cannot give them forth unless in private we receive oil from God the Holy Ghost.

Quote of the Day: Truth Obeyed or Disobeyed Determines your future

“Truth obeyed leads to more truth.”

“Truth disobeyed destroys the capacity for discovering truth.”

“Truth not lived and stood for flees.”

I Never Knew You

21   “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22   Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

23        And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matt7:21-23, John8:32,John14:6, Prov4:22-24, Isa1:19, Jos1:8, Jam1:19,23,24,

Quote of the Day: when you buy the lies of Satan You will Disobey God

When you believe Satan’s lies, you will disobey God.

adam and Eve

God made Man in His Own Image

6 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Gen1:26-28

Adam was so intelligent that he named all the animals

19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name.

20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. Gen2:19-20

God wanted man to be obedient as to eat of the best of the Land- te Garden of Eden

Life in God’s Garden

8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed

.9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 Satan then came and deceived Man to believe a lie that god was withholding what man wanted from him- to be like God. Remember, God created man like Himself- in His own image.

The Temptation and Fall of Man

1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden;

3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”

4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

Satan deceive man and he  fell

Although man was still physically alive after the fall, he became spiritually dead- hence the fear, hiding from god and escaped.

Satan had stolen man’s dominion from him. Little wonder when Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness he boasted:’io had been delivered to me. Who did? Our first parents!

3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

4 But Jesus answered him, saying,

“It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’

5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

Ever wondered why you don’t feel like praying or going to Church when you have disobeyed God? The same reason why Adam and Eve ran from God when they heard his voice.

When you buy the lie of Satan, you will disobey God and forfeit your inheritance to Satan.

Satan is a liar and a Father of it. He uses thesame tactics today as he did then: ‘Deceive them to disinherit them.’ This is his motto.

We thank God for Jesus who came and clinched back our dominion. Col2:15 Dominion lost was regained when Jesu srose from the dead on the third day. And were were crucified with Him and raised together with Him and now seated with Him in heavenly places. That is the truth of the gospel. ( Eph2:1,6)

If you know Jesus as your personal Saviour, the old has gone and the new has come. You are a New Creeature in Christ. You are the redeemed of the Lord- redeemed from the power and manacles of satan and his cohorts. You are the righteousnes of God in Christ Jesus; an overcomer, set free for freedom. God is your Father and you are his child. No weapon fasshioned against you will prosper. All things will work together for you because youlove God and yuare the called according to His purpose.

Refuse to believe the lie of the enemy. If God be for youwho can be against you. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. Youhave been chosen by God to be His trophy, His Ambassador, instrument of peace and reconciliation, His voice, His hands and feet, part of the royal priesthood, the holy nation, a tree of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, to radiate His glory, honour and praise here on earth.

Commit yourself therefore to obey the Lord in all matters because Goid has your best interest at heart. God is not trying to heide your blessin from you. He has hidden it for you. all youneed to do is seek His face and when you do you will find His grace which is sufficient for you to access your divine inheritance. He will open the eyes of your spirital understanding to know the hope of yor calling and your glorious inheriatance in Christ. and when you do youwillwalk in victory and not defeat. youwill be above and not under. God will fight your battles and youwill eat the best of the Land. Yes reagrdless of the canaanites that are in yor promised land, the land is still yours. God has given it to you. and every placetat the sloe of your feet shall tread belongs to you.

Do not let the enemy short-change you.

When you buy Satan’s lies

You disobey God.

and this is not wise.

Stan on the Word.

Doubt your doubts

and believe your beliefs

Do not doubt in public

what you heard from God in yor closet.

God’s ways are higher than our ways

His thoughts are higher than His thoughts.

so let us reamain in the narrow way

which leads to eternal life.

‘I thought you said, ‘Quote of the day.’

Well that was what I thought it would be but it has turned out to be a sermon.  It is good to go with the flow. That is obedience to God as we have just heard. I trust you have been blessed.

Want to Know God’s Promises? Read the Bible! ( By Rick Warren)

“I commit you to God and to the Word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” (Acts 20:32 NIV)

You have an inheritance coming to you. If you read God’s Word, the Bible promises one for you.

The Bible says in Acts 20:32, “I commit you to God and to the Word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”

An inheritance is what you get for being part of a family that’s rightfully yours.

Pretend your father was Warren Buffet, and he dies. If you never took the time to read the will, you’d be foolish. You wouldn’t get what was rightfully due to you. You wouldn’t benefit from what belongs to you as a child of Warren Buffet.

When you become a follower of Jesus, you’re not just a believer — you’re a belonger. You become a part of God’s family. Family privileges come along with that decision. You have a spiritual inheritance.

But if you walked through your entire life and you didn’t know what benefits were available to you as a child of God, that would be sad — and foolish. God wants you to grow and know what’s available to you from him. You need to read the Bible to do that.

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

The purpose of the Bible is to help you live out the purpose God has for your life; it’s God’s inheritance that’s due to you. God wants you to be thoroughly equipped for what you’ve been made to do. To do that, he does four things through Scripture:

– He teaches you. God shows you the path on which you should walk.

– He rebukes you. God shows you when you’re off the path.

– He corrects you. God shows us how you can get back on the path.

– He trains you. God shows you how you can stay on the path.

That’s how God’s Word helps you grow and get that great inheritance God has prepared for you.

Talk About It

How would your life change if it reflected the truth that you have an inheritance from the King of Kings?

– What benefits from your inheritance have you not yet accepted?

– Is the Bible a useful tool for you each day? Are you taking full advantage of its instruction?
