Ancient Land Marks

Apostle Grace Lubega

Proverbs 22:28 (KJV); Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

I have often mentioned that if Jesus lived in this present day, he would be too radical to be accepted in some churches.

If Moses lived today and dared turn a rod into a snake, he would rank high on the charts of those considered to be “cult.”

The average response to the miraculous in our generation swings between apathy and hostility.

I once questioned why this was so and came to the realisation that some Christians do not believe biblical truths because the ancient land marks were removed.

The reality of the true Christian life has been diluted and compromised by the opinions of men and subjected to the power of reason.

But the history of the Church is rich with men of great exploits. These were generals and pioneers of the faith who believed the Word in its entirety and walked in its realities every day of their lives.

Alexander Dowie shocked the world with the healing power of GOD.

When the plague hit South Africa, John G Lake was scientifically proven to be immune. Under microscopic scrutiny, the bacteria was found to die the moment it touched his skin.

Maria Woodworth Etter raised her hands to the GOD she believed and people, miles away would fall under the power of GOD.

Our history is of men like Peter whose shadow healed the sick (Acts 5:15), Paul of whom handkerchiefs from him caused demons to flee (Acts 19:11-12); Philip who travelled to and from places with no known physical means of transport but with the aid of the Spirit (Acts 8:26-40); Jesus who walked on water, healed all forms of illness and raised the dead.

That is our heritage! A believer can do all that and more(John 14:12). Hallelujah.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. I understand our roots and appreciate where we are headed as a body of Christ. Because I have applied my heart to understand, I do and contribute my part to the great cause of the gospel to the glory of your name. Amen.

The Discipline of the Prophet

Apostle Grace Lubega

1 Corinthians 14:32-33 (KJV); And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

In the Church today, some Christian brothers and sisters have been offended and some lives utterly destroyed by prophets who speak without wisdom.

Some claim “they found themselves speaking and had no control over what they said.”

It is immaturity to speak without a sense of self control—the spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet.

In fact, when you are operating in the highest dimensions of the prophetic, GOD does not set you BESIDE yourself but ABOVE yourself.

Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23 NIV)—it is a manifestation of the work of the Spirit in and through you.

Some issues that GOD reveals to you are very sensitive and have the potential to break up relationships.

The mature thing to do is call the individual aside and privately talk about what GOD has revealed.

If you don’t, you might destroy someone’s life, and that is not the ministry of Christ.

Every prophet must know how to rule his spirit.

FURTHER STUDY: Galatians 5:22-23 NIV, Revelation 19:10

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Every prophet must know how to rule his spirit.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. I thank you because you never seek to set me beside myself. You work in me to build the brethren and never to destroy. I minister in wisdom, to the glory of your name. Amen.

The Indifference Of Caiaphas

The Indifference Of Caiaphas

Apostle Grace Lubega

John 11:49-52 (KJV); And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

In our theme scripture, Caiaphas, by reason of the fact that he was the High Priest that year prophesied that Jesus was meant to die not only for the nation but also to gather together the children of God that were scattered abroad.

In the Book of Acts, we find an account of Caiaphas and his fellow council members seeking to kill the apostles because they were preaching about the Christ; the very person he prophesied about.

The scriptures reveal in Acts 5:16-18, 27-29; “There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. Then the HIGH PRIEST rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison…And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

The fact that GOD had worked through him to prophecy about the Christ did not mean that Caiaphas was in consonance with the mind and ministry of the Spirit.

He is a typical example of one who sits in a high prophetic, pastoral, apostolic or other spiritual office but does not have the mind of GOD or an understanding of divine purpose.

Caiphas was a man exalted enough to be a voice in Israel but indifference set him against divine purpose.

The “indifference of Caiaphas” is the reason why a man, in the name of fighting for GOD, instead fights GOD.

May GOD grant you discernment; May He give you an understanding of His mind; May you appreciate His move in your day that you will not be found to fight Him as you fight the very men He uses. Praise Him!

FURTHER STUDY: Ephesians 1:17, 1 Corinthians 2:16

GOLDEN NUGGET:

May GOD grant you discernment; May He give you an understanding of His mind; May you appreciate His move in your day that you will not be found to fight Him as you fight the very men He uses.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your Word. I am alive to your mind and the direction of divine purpose in my time. I understand the flow of the Spirit, what He is up to and how mightily he is moving in our day. I walk in perfect tune to his desires, to build and edify the brethren and never to fight your move in our day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Respect for the Recompense

Respect for the Recompense

Apostle Grace Lubega

Hebrews 11:24-26 (KJV); By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

There are things you must endure in the gospel because you have respect unto the recompense of the reward.

Paul describes a man who has respect for the recompense in 2 Corinthians 6:3-5. He says; “Giving no offence in anything, that the ministry be not blamed: But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings…”

You may meet people who will take away from your labours; who will seek to break the things you build, those who will try to stamp out the fire that burns on your altar.

Inspite of their wickedness, you choose to love when you are hated, choose to settle even when you are right and pray for those who fight you.

Esteem the reproach of Christ above anything else.

Live above the actions and words of your accusers.

You would rather bear the reproach of Christ than fight to appear right before men. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Galatians 6:9-10, 2 Corinthians 6:3-10

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Choose to love when you are hated, choose to settle even when you are right, and pray for those who fight you. You would rather bear the reproach of Christ than fight to appear right before men.

PRAYER: Father, I am grateful for your Word. I hold the gospel closest to my heart and can never do anything that brings shame to the ministry and the gospel. Thank you for the grace to endure what I must endure, for the love that covers a multitude of wrongs and for the patience that causes me to continually believe in people. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Persecution – A Badge Of Honour

Persecution – A Badge Of Honour

Apostle Grace Lubega

Mark 10:29-30 (KJV); There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with PERSECUTIONS; and in the world to come eternal life.”

In his book, God’s Generals, Roberts Liardon narrates the story of the healing apostle, Alexander Dowie.

He accounts that Alexander was arrested one hundred times in a period of one year because of the gospel. It is said that Alexander wore persecution like a badge of honour.
What an attitude!

Foxe’s Book of Martyrs details some gruelling accounts of Christians guillotined, immersed in boiling oil, burnt at stakes, mauled by bulls and hungry lions, stoned to death—all because of the gospel.

When you got Born Again, you got into a covenant that made you an enemy to the world (John 15:18).
The promise from our Lord and master was clear; you, “…shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with PERSECUTIONS; and in the world to come eternal life.”

You will suffer many things because of this gospel. But the LORD has promised that it all works for your good (Romans 8:28).

Paul, in the bliss of this understanding called them light afflictions (2 Corinthians 4:17).

We have a cloud of witnesses cheering us on (Hebrews 12:1). These are people that have gone before you.

There is no temptation that has befallen you that is not common to man (1 Corinthians 10:13). It means that someone victoriously went through what you are going through. If someone did, you also can, in the name of Jesus! Amen!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Corinthians 4:17, Matthew 5:10

GOLDEN NUGGET:

We have a cloud of witnesses. These are people that have gone before you. There is no temptation that has befallen you that is not common to man. It means that someone victoriously went through what you are going through. If someone did, you also can.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the gospel. It has withstood the stormy sands of time; it is the great force that has shaped the course of history. Governments could not stop it; empires could not quench its fires. I thank you for the great privilege to be a part of it. It doesn’t matter what I suffer for the sake of this gospel, I count it joy. Today, I stand in the understanding that nothing can ever shake my convictions in this truth. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

Why We Preach The Grace: To Change A Generation

Why We Preach The Grace: To Change A Generation

Apostle Grace Lubega

Luke 2:34-38 (KJV); And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against…And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Yesterday, we learnt the mystery of perfect hearkening. I mentioned that the name Simeon is translated to mean “hearkening” and that the place of perfect hearkening is where a man’s spirit can receive and hear GOD’S mind pertaining to His move in a generation.

After Simeon had blessed the Christ, the prophetess Anna also came to Jesus “and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.”

The next experience of the Christian who has learnt how to hear God [to hearken] perfectly is to heed to “Anna.”

The name Anna is translated to mean “grace.”

When you receive the message of what God is up to in your times and the distinctive part you must play, all you need is the ministry of grace.

Grace means that it is not going to work according to your strength, it is going to work like God promised.

Grace means, it does not matter who knows you and who does not, it matters that God knows you.

Grace means you will not know who will come to your aid or who will carry your vision but that God is true to His word and will shake the ends of the earth to bring what you need. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Luke 2:25-30, 1 Corinthians 15:10

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Grace means that it is not going to work in your strength, it is going to work like God promised. Grace means, it does not matter who knows you and who does not, it matters that God knows you. Grace means you will not know who will come to your aid or who will carry your vision but that God is true to His word and will shake the ends of the earth to bring what you need.

PRAYER: My father, I thank you for your grace. It is by grace that you drew me and showed me great and unsearchable things. Lord, these are things that found me and not the things I found because I sought for them. These are your visions Lord, your plans, and your blue prints. Even as you drew them with accuracy in my spirit, it is purely by your hand that they will find manifestation in the earth. For it is not by power, nor by might but by your Spirit. Your grace has written my history and past; grace defined the future, and grace colours the present. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Mystery Of Perfect Hearkening

The Mystery Of Perfect Hearkening
  • Apostle Grace Lubega

    Luke 2:25-30 (KJV); And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation.

    It is such a beautiful thing to hear in the spirit.

    GOD by His grace allows us access to hear things pertaining to important issues in our lives and the lives of those around us: who you should marry, whom to get into a business deal with, which career path to pursue, how to respond to some of life’s more pressing challenges and other issues of that nature.

    But I wish to show the mystery of perfect hearkening.

    This lesson is drawn from the life of this great devout man called Simeon. The name Simeon itself means “hearkening.”

    What did Simeon hear? Our theme scripture says, “it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.”

    While you may hear all things, you must be tuned enough to the Spirit to hear what can save a generation and change the world.

    Because of what he heard, Simeon was the first man to bless the Christ in Spirit.

    Yes, the wise men brought gold, frankincense and myrrh but Simeon laid hands on our Lord and made great prophetic utterances into his life! Why? He hearkened—perfectly.

    Like He did with Simeon, GOD wants to reveal to you things that will live a mark on the world, revive a nation and change your generation.

    FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 71:18, Isaiah 30:21

    GOLDEN NUGGET:

    GOD wants to reveal to you things that will live a mark on the world, revive a nation and change your generation.

    PRAYER: Father, I am thankful for the clarity of your voice. For there are many voices and none without significance. I hear the voice and sound of divine purpose. Even as I yield to your voice, my destiny is perfectly aligned to the course you have set for me. What I hear is for the world, a light to the gentiles, a source of glory for the church. What must arise by my message shall arise. What must fall by my message shall fall. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    LE MYSTÈRE DE LA PARFAITE ÉCOUTE

    Luc 2:25-30 (KJV) Et voici, il y avait un homme à Jérusalem, nommé Siméon ; et le même homme était juste et dévot, attendant la consolation d’Israël : et le Saint-Esprit était sur lui. Et le Saint-Esprit lui a révélé qu’il ne devrait pas voir la mort avant d’avoir vu le Christ du Seigneur. Et il vint par l’Esprit dans le temple : et quand les parents amenèrent l’enfant Jésus, pour le faire selon la coutume de la loi, il le prit dans ses bras, et bénit Dieu, et dit : Seigneur, maintenant laisse ton serviteur partir en paix, selon ta parole : Car mes yeux ont vu ton salut.

    C’est une si belle chose d’entendre dans l’esprit.

    DIEU par sa grâce nous permet d’entendre des choses concernant des questions importantes dans nos vies et celles de ceux qui nous entourent : qui vous devez épouser, avec qui conclure une affaire, quel chemin à suivre, comment répondre à certaines des défis plus pressants de la vie et d’autres questions de cette nature.

    Mais je souhaite montrer le mystère de l’écoute parfaite.

    Cette leçon est tirée de la vie de ce grand homme pieux appelé Siméon. Le nom Siméon lui-même signifie « écouter ».

    Qu’est-ce que Siméon a entendu ? Notre écriture dit : « Il lui a été révélé par le Saint-Esprit, qu’il ne devrait pas voir la mort avant d’avoir vu le Christ du Seigneur ».

    Alors que vous pouvez entendre toutes choses, vous devez être assez accordé à l’Esprit pour entendre ce qui peut sauver une génération et changer le monde.

    À cause de ce qu’il a entendu, Siméon a été le premier homme à bénir le Christ dans l’Esprit.

    Oui, les sages ont apporté de l’or, de l’encens et de la myrrhe, mais Siméon a imposé les mains à notre Seigneur et a fait de grandes déclarations prophétiques dans sa vie ! Pourquoi ? Il a écouté – parfaitement.

    Comme il l’a fait avec Siméon, DIEU veut vous révéler des choses qui marqueront le monde, feront revivre une nation et changeront votre génération.

    ÉTUDE COPMLÉMENTAIRE : Psaumes 71:18, Isaïe 30:21

    PÉPITE D’OR : DIEU veut vous révéler des choses qui marqueront le monde, feront revivre une nation et changeront votre génération.

    PRIÈRE : Père, je suis reconnaissant pour la clarté de ta voix. Car il y a beaucoup de voix et aucune sans signification. J’entends la voix et le son du dessein divin. Même si je cède à votre voix, mon destin est parfaitement aligné sur le parcours que tu as défini pour moi. Ce que j’entends est pour le monde, une lumière pour les gentils, une source de gloire pour l’église. Ce qui doit surgir de mon message doit surgir. Ce qui doit tomber par mon message tombera. Au nom de Jésus. Amen.

    ENAAMA Y’OKUHURIKIZA GYE.

    Kandi omuri Yerusaalemu hakaba harimu omushaija, eiziina rye Simeoni; omushaija ogwo akaba ari ohikiriire naatiina Ruhanga, ategyereize Okuhuumurizibwa kwa Israeli, kandi Omwoyo Orikwera akaba amuriho. Akaba ashuuruuriirwe Omwoyo Orikwera ku atarifa atakareebire Kristo wa Mukama.

For Your Generation

For Your Generation

Apostle Grace Lubega

Psalms 24:6(KJV); This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face oh Jacob. Selah

Every child of GOD ought to understand what GOD is up to in his or her generation.

To do this, you must know how to discern the signs of the times because GOD executes eternal purpose on the earth in seasons and times (Ecclesiastes 3:1).

Christ reprimanded the Pharisees thus, “Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?” (Luke 12:56).

A generation that has not understood how to discern the times lacks spiritual direction.

So I ask you child of GOD, have you taken time to understand what GOD is up to in this day?

When you pray and seek His face, do you inquire about His mind for this generation?

You ought to get past the level of merely asking about your job, business deal, spouse or any such material things.

GOD wants to put in your spirit His picture of what He wants to do in this generation. Praise Him!

Rest In Peace

Rest In Peace
  • Apostle Grace Lubega

    Luke 2:25-30 (KJV); And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation…

    There are things that the LORD may speak to you pertaining your future and to emphasise their seriousness, He will seal them with the ultimate promise that you cannot die until you experience them.

    For Simeon, it was to see the LORD’S Christ.

    When GOD makes this vow, it doesn’t matter whether some terminal disease tries to claim your life.

    You cannot die of it because what GOD has spoken to you is BIGGER than that disease.

    For some of us, this is what defines satisfaction and a life well lived.

    I know a Christian who thinks that he should not die until he has scaled Mount Everest, another until he has seen the Taj Mahal and another until he has won a presidency.

    But when you weigh certain ambitions on the scales of divine purpose, you will find them critically lacking in the one ingredient that gives them the savour and taste of true greatness— GOD’s voice of purpose.

    Your satisfaction ought to stretch beyond what you must achieve on the earth, what you must own or who you must become by the standards of this world.

    It ought to be defined by those things that GOD has painted in your spirit that it would be devastating to die without having seen and experienced them.

    To REST IN PEACE, is to leave this world with the satisfaction that you touched, tasted, saw and fulfilled what God determined and patterned for your life. Hallelujah!

    Il y a des choses que le SEIGNEUR peut vous dire concernant votre avenir et souligner leur gravité, Il les scellera avec la promesse ultime que vous ne pouvez pas mourir avant d’en avoir fait l’expérience.

    Pour Siméon, c’était pour voir le Christ du SEIGNEUR.

    Quand DIEU fait ce vœu, peu importe si une maladie en phase terminale essaie de réclamer votre vie.

    Vous ne pouvez pas en mourir parce que ce que DIEU vous a dit est PLUS GRAND que cette maladie.

    Pour certains d’entre nous, c’est ce qui définit la satisfaction et une vie bien vécue.

    Je connais un Chrétien qui pense qu’il ne devrait pas mourir jusqu’à ce qu’il ait escaladé le mont Everest, un autre jusqu’à ce qu’il ait vu le Taj Mahal et un autre jusqu’à ce qu’il ait gagné une présidence.

    Mais quand vous pesez certaines ambitions sur les échelles du dessein divin, vous les trouverez cruellement dépourvus dans le seul ingrédient qui leur donne la saveur et le goût de la vraie grandeur – la voix de DIEU du but.

    Votre satisfaction doit s’étendre au-delà de ce que vous devez accomplir sur la terre, de ce que vous devez posséder ou de ce que vous devez devenir selon les normes de ce monde.

    Il doit être défini par ces choses que DIEU a peintes dans votre esprit qu’il serait dévastateur de mourir sans les avoir vues et vécues.

Je vais vivre pour les voir arriver. Pour la gloire de ton nom. Amen.

Know Whose You Are

Know Whose You Are
  • Apostle Grace Lubega

    Ephesians 3:20 (KJV); Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…

    I have been a minister of the gospel long enough to see Christians sacrifice virtue and integrity at the altar of compromise, mainly because they do not know whose they are.

    I have seen Christian ladies suffer ridicule and emotional torment at the hands of men because they looked to them as the source of sustenance.

    I have witnessed ministers of the gospel sell their souls at the counter of vanity just to get money. I have seen men and women who have sacrificed everything to the god of materialism.

    But today, I want to re-assure a child of God, that your God is able.

    You do not need a man as the ultimate connection to your next blessing. You need God. You do not need a ‘prominent so and so’ to make your clean break. You need God!

    Don’t stoop too low, dear Christian.

    The Bible says He descended into hell, some translations use the phrase, “the lowest parts of the earth” (Ephesians 4:9); He also became sin for your sake (2 Corinthians 5:21). He sunk so low, so you may stand so high!

    Don’t get to a place where you are too desperate that you do things that Christians should not do.

    The only connection you need is Jesus. He is the head and you are the body (Colossians 1:18).

    His blood is your blood. The ministry of that divine blood is that it speaks better things! (Hebrews 12:24).

    It speaks for you. Do you need a promotion? That blood speaks in your favour. Do you need providence and favour? That blood speaks for you. Hallelujah!

    FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 19:26, Ephesians 1:21-23

    GOLDEN NUGGET:
    The only connection you need is Jesus. He is the head and you are the body. His blood is your blood. The ministry of that divine blood is that it speaks better things! It speaks for you. Do you need a promotion? That blood speaks in your favour. Do you need providence and favour? That blood speaks for you.

    PRAYER: Loving father, you are my true identity. You define my value and my reward. You have defined my worth by the eternal sacrifice at Calvary. I walk as a child of God, confident in whose I am and in what you have made me. This understanding shapes my approach to every area of life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  • Apôtre Grace Lubega

    SAVOIR QUI VOUS ÊTES

    Ephésiens 3:20 (KJV) Maintenant à celui qui peut faire au-delà de tout ce que nous demandons ou pensons, selon la puissance qui agit en nous…

    It speaks for you. Do you need a promotion? That blood speaks in your favour. Do you need providence and favour? That blood speaks for you. Hallelujah!

    J’ai été un ministre de l’évangile assez longtemps pour voir les chrétiens sacrifier la vertu et l’intégrité à l’autel du compromis, principalement parce qu’ils ne savent pas qui ils sont.

    J’ai vu des dames Chrétiennes subir le ridicule et le tourment émotionnel des mains des hommes parce qu’elles les considéraient comme la source de subsistance.

    J’ai vu des ministres de l’évangile vendre leurs âmes au comptoir de la vanité juste pour avoir de l’argent. J’ai vu des hommes et des femmes qui ont tout sacrifié au dieu du matérialisme.

    Mais aujourd’hui, je veux réassurer un enfant de Dieu, que votre Dieu est capable.

    Vous n’avez pas besoin d’un homme comme connexion ultime à votre prochaine bénédiction. Vous avez besoin de Dieu. Vous n’avez pas besoin d’un « important » pour faire votre propre pause. Vous avez besoin de Dieu !

    Ne te baissez pas trop les bas, cher Chrétien.

    La Bible dit qu’il est descendu aux enfers, certaines traductions utilisent l’expression « les parties les plus basses de la terre » (Ephésiens 4:9) ; Il est aussi devenu péché pour vous (2 Corinthiens 5:21). Il a coulé si bas, alors vous pouvez vous tenir si haut !

    N’arrivez pas à un endroit où vous êtes trop désespéré pour faire des choses que les Chrétiens ne devraient pas faire.

    Le seul lien dont vous avez besoin est Jésus. Il est la tête et vous êtes le corps (Colossiens 1:18).

    Son sang est votre sang. Le ministère de ce sang divin est qu’il parle de meilleures choses ! (Hébreux 12:24).

    Cela parle pour vous. Avez-vous besoin d’une promotion ? Ce sang parle en votre faveur. Avez-vous besoin de providence et de faveur ? Ce sang parle pour vous. Alléluia !

    ÉTUDE COMPLÉMENTAIRE: Matthieu 19:26, Ephésiens 1:21-23

    PÉPITE D’OR : Le seul lien dont vous avez besoin est Jésus. Il est la tête et vous êtes le corps. Son sang est votre sang. Le ministère de ce sang divin est qu’il parle de meilleures choses ! Cela parle pour vous. Avez-vous besoin d’une promotion ? Ce sang parle en votre faveur. Avez-vous besoin de providence et de faveur ? Ce sang parle pour vous.

    PRIÈRE : Père aimant, tu es ma vraie identité. Tu définis ma valeur et ma récompense. Tu as défini ma valeur par le sacrifice éternel au Calvaire. Je marche comme un enfant de Dieu, confiant en qui je suis et en ce que tu m’as fait. Cette compréhension façonne mon approche dans tous les domaines de la vie. Au nom de Jésus. Amen.
