The Things That Remain

Apostle Grace Lubega

Hebrews 12:27-28 (KJV); And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

As children of God, there is an eternal grace functioning in our lives by reason of the Word of God that we received in our hearts that gave us everything that cannot be shaken.

When we received the Holy Spirit, we got that which has the ability to shake whatsoever can be shaken so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

This is why even if heaven and earth pass away, the Word of God cannot pass away(Mark 13:31).

What is built on the Word shakes the world but it cannot be shaken.

A ministry built on the Word shakes the world but remains, a legacy built on the Word shakes the world but remains, a vision built on the Word shakes the world but remains. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: John 15:16, Mark 13:31

GOLDEN NUGGET:
As children of God, there is an eternal grace functioning in our lives by reason of the Word of God that we received in our hearts that gave us everything that cannot be shaken.

PRAYER: Father thank you for your Word. It carries the testimony of the beginning and the end, it is the substance of eternity and the force that framed the worlds. I am deeply rooted in it like it is deeply rooted in me, it abides in me and I in it. This is why whatever I do prospers, whatever I touch changes and whatever I speak is established. Nothing can shake me because I stand on the Word. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Bread Upon The Waters

Apostle Grace Lubega

Ecclesiastes 11:1 (KJV); Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

When you cast bread upon the waters, you shall find it. BREAD represents the Word of God and the WATER stands for the waters of the spirit.

When you speak the WORD of God in truth, it must work.

He said in Isaiah 55:10-11; For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

The WORD you speak with revelation, and in understanding is never in vain.

Regardless of your situation, learn to simply cast bread upon the waters. Get into God’s WORD and speak it over any issue with no consideration of the physical realities of your present state.

Like God, you must call the things that are not as though they are (Romans 4:17).

The error with some Christians is that they are casting bread but doing so upon dry and barren ground. This means that they sow to the FLESH and not to the SPIRIT (Galatians 6:8); their confessions are of the physical realities of the life around them and not of the spirit.

When BREAD is cast on the waters, it is set on that path which no fowl knows and which the vulture’s eye has not seen (Job 28:7). Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Isaiah 55:10-11, Job 28:7

GOLDEN NUGGET:
When you cast bread upon the waters, it must return with results to you. Bread represents the WORD of God and the water represents the SPIRIT.

PRAYER: Father, I am grateful for your Word. I receive the understanding of how to cast bread on the waters and sow to the spirit. I never offend in word regardless of the circumstances around me. I see perfection in all that I do because I am perfect in speech. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Of The Things We Must See

Apostle Grace Lubega

Romans 8:14 (KJV); For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

In the things of the Spirit, we do not choose what we see but He [God] chooses what we must see.

This is not because God does not want to give us access to these things but because it is part of divine wisdom to distinguish the permissible from the beneficial. Like Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:23; All things are lawful but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

What you do not see, you do not need and what you see is what you need.

Why is this so? Because access to the things of the Spirit is tagged to purpose.

We do not access the realm of God simply because we want to satisfy our curiosity. He leads us.

Our theme scripture says, as many as are led by the Spirit of God , they are the sons of God. The Greek Word used for son (hious) means a mature son.

It is part of spiritual maturity to wait on God and allow him to lead you to what you must see.

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 10:23, 2 Corinthians 12:4

GOLDEN NUGGET:
In the things of the Spirit, we do not choose what we see but He [God] chooses what we must see. We do not access the realm of God simply because we want to satisfy our curiosity. He leads us.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your Word. Thank you for access, for the places you lead me to. Thank you because the gates of the Spirit are open to me and I walk with the wisdom that separates the beneficial from the permissible. What I see aligns me to the course of my destiny and paints a clearer picture of your mind and purpose in the earth. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Maturity in the Anointing: Pearls to Swine

Maturity in the Anointing: Pearls to Swine

Apostle Grace Lubega

Matthew 7:6 (KJV); Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you.

It is one thing to be anointed, it is another to be mature in the anointing.

You may mature in the anointing by reason of the period of time in which you have exercised yourself in that grace. You may also mature in the anointing by reason of the experiences you yielded and made yourself available to in that grace.

One mark of this maturity in the anointing is discernment. The mature discerning spirit knows what to say, when to say it and where to say it.

From this comes the requirement of accountability for every minister as seen from our theme scripture; are you casting pearls to swine or not?

Every minister who is mature in the anointing knows how to weigh the spirits of those to whom he ministers inorder to understand the ability of their spirits to bear certain spiritual insights.

Not every mystery you receive must be uttered in that instance. Some people are not spiritually ready to receive certain truths; and because they are not, they will twist your truth and in turn seek to destroy you too.

Not everything you see must be spoken. This is why there are things Paul accessed but he was barred by certain laws of the Spirit to utter them ( 2 Corinthians 12:4).

Discernment causes the mature minister not to stumble “by meats” but to edify by love (1 Corinthians 8:1). Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 8:1, 2 Corinthians 12:4

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The mature discerning spirit knows what to say, when to say it and where to say it. Discernment causes the mature minister not to stumble “by meats” but to edify by love (1 Corinthians 8:1).

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your word. My master, your love, that which edifies, has opened me to the depths, breaths, heights and lengths of your person. It is from this that I minister. I can never stumble the brethren by reason of the things I access and received from the Spirit. I know what to say, when to say it and where to say it. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

Judgment on the Tongue

Apostle Grace Lubega

Luke 16:23-24 (KJV); And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

The Bible gives an account of the man who died and went to hell. In the torment of hell, he lifted up his eyes and saw Father Abraham with Lazarus (the poor beggar he had paid little attention to) in his bosom.

But in this story, Christ gives us great insight into what is really judged by the eternal fires of hell.

This man was burning up, tormented and anguished but his cry to father Abraham was that he would dip his finger in water and cool his TONGUE.

The scriptures reveal that life and death are in the POWER of the tongue—it is the tongue that holds the power of both life and death (Proverbs 18:21).
In James 3:6, the Bible says; And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

It goes on to say, For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. (James 3:7-8).

No man can tame his tongue. However, you are more than a man, you are a spirit, a child of the most high God.

The power to tame your tongue has been handed to you. You have the power to rule it and bring it to subjection, that the utterances of your lips will only be of life. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: James 3:6-8, Proverbs 18:21

GOLDEN NUGGET:

The power to tame your tongue has been handed to you. You have the power to rule it and bring it to subjection, that the utterances of your lips will only be of life.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this knowledge. I have the power to rule my tongue. My lips are seasoned with salt and my utterances are of grace. Out of my tongue flows blessings and sweet utterances to the glory of your name. Amen.

The Grace, Love And Fellowship

The Grace, Love And Fellowship

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 13:14 (KJV); The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

If you are to live a distinctive life in God, there are three things that you ought to understand: the grace, love and fellowship.

When you receive the revelation of God’s grace, you will understand His love and when you understand His love, it leads you into fellowship with Him.

Grace reveals love and love leads us into communion.

From our theme scripture, we understand an aspect of the oneness of the Godhead—that it stands in the bond of grace, love and fellowship, for grace is the person of Christ, love is the person of God and communion is the essence of the Holy Spirit.

You are one with God (1 Corinthians 6:17). However, you can only grow in the manifestation of that oneness when you understand grace, love and fellowship.

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 6:17, John 17:22-23

GOLDEN NUGGET:
When you receive the revelation of God’s grace, you will understand His love and when you understand His love, it leads you into fellowship with Him. Grace reveals love and love leads us into communion.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your Word. Today I walk in the understanding of the oneness I share with you. I carry the revelation of your grace, love and as such, walk in constant communion with you. In this, when men see me, they see you because we are one. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Why We Preach The Grace: Saints In God

Why We Preach The Grace: Saints In God
  • Apostle Grace Lubega

    1 John 3:9(AMP); No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

    You were a sinner saved by grace, NOW you are a saint kept by grace.

    The Bible says that when Christ died, you died with him (Romans 6:8).

    The sinner who was saved by grace died with Christ. He was buried with Him and his existence in the eyes of God and in the life of the spirit came to an end.

    For old things are passed away and all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

    The new creature begotten in Christ is incorruptible for he is begotten of the incorruptible seed which is the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23).

    Incorruptibility is a nature issue, and the Greek word “apthartos” used therein means “not liable to corruption.”

    Sin is corruption—the new creature in Christ is dead to corruption and corruption is dead to him (Romans 6:2).

    Like our theme scripture says, he cannot [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practice sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

    That is the reason why the new creature in Christ] is called a saint, its not in his nature to sin.
    That is the man that fights against the flesh and overcomes Hallelujah!

    FURTHER STUDY: Romans 6:2, 2 Corinthians 5:17

    GOLDEN NUGGET:
    You were a sinner saved by grace, NOW you are a saint kept by grace.

    PRAYER: Lord, I am grateful for your grace. It preserves and keeps me, it teaches and instructs me in the ways of righteousness. I thank you that by your grace, I walk in righteousness, confident of the fullness of the sacrifice that purchased my atonement and forgiveness. I live life in the freedom of one who is sanctified and justified. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  • Apôtre Grace Lubega

    POURQUOI NOUS PRÊCHONS LA GRÂCE : SAINTS EN CHRIST

    1 Jean 3:9(AMP) Personne née (engendrée) de Dieu [délibérément, sciemment, et habituellement] pratique le péché, car la nature de Dieu demeure en lui [Son principe de vie, le sperme divin, demeure en permanence en lui] ; et il ne peut pas pratiquer le péché parce qu’il est né (engendré) de Dieu.

    Vous étiez un pécheur sauvé par la grâce, MAINTENANT vous êtes un saint gardé par la grâce.

    La Bible dit que lorsque le Christ est mort, vous êtes morts avec lui (Romains 6:8).

    Le pécheur qui a été sauvé par la grâce est mort avec le Christ. Il a été enterré avec Lui et son existence aux yeux de Dieu et dans la vie de l’esprit a pris fin.

    Car les choses anciennes sont passées et toutes choses sont devenues nouvelles (2 Corinthiens 5:17).

    La nouvelle créature engendrée en Christ est incorruptible car il est né de la semence incorruptible qui est la Parole de Dieu (1 Pierre 1:23).

    L’incorruptibilité est une question de nature, et le mot grec « apthartos » utilisé ici signifie « non susceptible de corruption ».

    Le péché est la corruption – la nouvelle créature en Christ est morte à la corruption et la corruption est morte pour lui (Romains 6:2).

    Comme le dit notre écriture : « Il ne peut pratiquer [délibérément, sciemment et habituellement] le péché, car la nature de Dieu demeure en lui [Son principe de vie, le sperme divin, demeure en permanence en lui] ; et il ne peut pas pratiquer le péché parce qu’il est né (engendré) de Dieu. »

    C’est la raison pour laquelle la nouvelle créature en Christ est appelée un saint, ce n’est pas dans sa nature de pécher.
    C’est l’homme qui se bat contre la chair et surmonte. Alléluia !

    ÉTUDE COMPLÉMENTAIRE : Romains 6:2, 2 Corinthiens 5:17

    PÉPITE D’OR : Vous étiez un pécheur sauvé par la grâce, MAINTENANT vous êtes un saint gardé par la grâce.

    PRIÈRE : Seigneur, je te suis reconnaissant pour ta grâce. Il me préserve et me garde, il m’enseigne et m’instruit dans les voies de la justice. Je te remercie que par ta grâce, je marche dans la justice, confiant de la plénitude du sacrifice qui a acheté mon expiation et mon pardon. Je vis la vie dans la liberté de celui qui est sanctifié et justifié. Au nom de Jésus. Amen.

Planted By The Word

Apostle Grace Lubega

Matthew 15:13 (KJV); But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

If a man is not planted by God, he will be up rooted.

Understand this; merely because someone is going up(succeeding in life) does not mean that they are going up the right way.

There are several people who have succeeded purely out of wickedness. For these, it is simply a matter of time, their leaves will wither and their fruit will become corrupted.

That is why we grow by the sure word of prophecy—the Word of God (2 Peter 1:19).

The Greek word used for the word sure is “bebaios” which is also translated to mean, stable and firm.

The WORD of God establishes you so firmly that nothing can uproot you.

Heaven and earth shall pass away but His WORD shall not pass away! (Matthew 24:35).
This WORD in you and by which you grow is eternal because it lives and abides forever! (1 Peter 1:23).

Psalms 119:89 says, “Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”

When He says you are the head and not the tail, it is settled.
When He says you are His righteousness, it is settled.
When He says by His stripes you were healed, it is settled.

Nothing in the world can change that course because you are planted by the eternal substance of the WORD of God. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Peter 1:19, Psalms 119:89

GOLDEN NUGGET:

If a man is not planted by God, he will be up rooted. That is why we grow by the sure WORD of prophecy—the WORD of God

PRAYER: Father, I am thankful for this knowledge. Today, I stand on your Word—it is steadfast, sure and my very firm foundation. I grow by the Word and live life by its patterns. I am planted by you and nothing can change the course of my destiny. Because I live by the Word, I will surely finish well. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Fruit Of Your Mouth

Apostle Grace Lubega

Proverbs 18:20-21(KJV); A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

A man’s belly is satisfied by the fruit of his mouth.

The nature of the fruit is described in the subsequent scripture that says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”(Proverbs 18:21)

Death and life are both the fruits of your mouth.

It means that what you confess will either kill or give life.

God says, “…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”(Deuteronomy 30:19).
You make the choice to live every day by confessing right.

Every seemingly negative circumstance in your life will present you with this choice.

If you are struggling with health, life and death has been set before you, so choose health by the confession of your lips.

If your career is not advancing, death and life have been set before you, so choose growth by your right confession.

If it is your health, ministry, marriage or any other area of your life, life and death have been set before you.
Your confession determines your fruit. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Deuteronomy 30:19, Proverbs 15:4

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Death and life are both the fruits of your mouth. What you confess will either kill or give life.
Every seemingly negative circumstance in your life will present you with this choice.

PRAYER: Thank you my loving father for this knowledge. I never error in speech and thus see perfection in everything that I do. Lord, it does not matter the circumstance of my life, my lips keep knowledge because I am a messenger and mouthpiece of God. I choose life every day by my confessions. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Life Starts From The Heart

Apostle Grace Lubega

Romans 6:17(KJV); But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have OBEYED FROM THE HEART that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Obedience is a heart issue. For this reason, our theme scripture uses the language, “obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.”

It does not start from the things you say or do but from the state of your heart towards the things you say or do.

In fact, it is possible to confess right when you are disobedient, that is, to speak what the scriptures say about your life and any circumstance you are facing yet your heart is not in agreement with what you say.

The heart is ground, which means that out of it grow [into full-fledged plants] the seeds of your deepest convictions.

The scripture says, guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flow the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).

Some people are keen to guard their hearts from the negative things that people say.
When someone says something contrary to scripture, for example, “You are poor”, they are quick to say, “That is not my portion. I cancel it is Jesus’ name!”

However, they do not guard their hearts from their own PERSONAL REFLECTIONS; they easily entertain negative thoughts and dwell on them endlessly.

The MESSAGE version of Proverbs 4:23 says; “Keep vigilant watch over your heart; [that’s] where life starts.”

In all that you say and do, always ensure that your heart AGREES because life starts from the heart. Hallelujah!

FURTHER STUDY: Proverbs 4:23, Philemon 1:6

GOLDEN NUGGET:

Some people are keen to guard their hearts from the negative things that people say. However, they do not guard their hearts from their own PERSONAL REFLECTIONS; they easily entertain negative thoughts and dwell on them endlessly.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this wisdom. I receive it with my spirit and yield to it’s work in my life. My heart is right before you and is aligned to what I do or say. My meditations are pure and my confessions are of truth. As I continually exercise myself in this pattern of life, I bear fruit to the glory of your name. Amen.
