The Man From Above

I think that one of the most misunderstood concepts in this life is salvation. It is not healing or anything else but rather, salvation.  People know all about healing and many other things but the reason why they cannot connect them together and get results is because they missed out on the ultimate thing called salvation.  If you understand the concept of salvation, your life cannot stay the same.

What it means to be Born Again

John 1:12-13 AMP says;

 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].

How can you have cancer? How can you have HIV? How can the doctor say you have Hyper Tension and then you get onto medication? The Bible calls them that are born of God. He personally begat them.

It goes on to say;

And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception).

Young’s Literal Translation says; and the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth.

When the bible says that he became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, fixed his tent of flesh on earth, it means that he got a body and entered it. However, his coming out of a woman was not the beginning of his story. The beginning of Jesus’ story was not when he entered Mary’s womb. His beginning was more eternal. The decision to enter the body was the day she was impregnated but it did not mean that he did not pre-exist. He was the rock from which they drunk [1 Corinthians 10:4]. He pre-existed. In the beginning, he was the light that shone in darkness and darkness comprehended him not. Even though he became flesh, he pre-existed.

Some people think that when you get Born Again, you change and become a better person. You stop cheating and lying and so they say that this man is Born Again. If you understand the Bible you will realize that those are works.

Let me explain something that religious people have failed to understand. I have learnt that some people are not truly Born Again.

The Man from Above

John 3:3 says; Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The Greek word for kingdom is realm. The amplified rendering is; Jesus answered him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless a person is born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified], he cannot[ever] see and experience the kingdom of God.”

Salvation is not when you changed on the earth. Salvation is when a new man from above entered you. The old man had to die to give way to the second. It is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:46 that howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. Before you were born again, you were a natural man. There is nothing spiritual about the second man.

You are the lord from heaven. You come with the spirit of lordship. Except a man be born from above, that man cannot experience the realm because the realm is supposed to be an experience. Salvation is supposed to be an experience.  You are from above.

In Genesis 1:26-27 he says; And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

However, this individual that was created did not come. In Genesis 2:7, it says, And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The bible says that that man became a living soul. He was not a spirit. God did not carry the Genesis 1:26 spirit and put him into the Genesis 2:7 man. For, the man in Genesis 2:7, he simply breathed into him the breath of life and he became a living soul. Now the book of Corinthians says that the first man in 2:7 was natural but the second man, he in 1:26, which is Christ, was spiritual. That man who you were before you were born again was just a living soul. He was not a living spirit.

God is not a soul. He is a spirit. The bible says that he created them in his image and likeness. That means that they were spirit but they were held in heaven, waiting. The first man who is Jesus said, let me give you a sample and he came into the body, healed the sick, cast out devils, did all these kinds of things and said, ‘it is for your good that I go. Why? Because I have just shown you a sample.’

But many claim, ‘Jesus, we are comfortable with doing what you did’ and he says, ‘no, you do not get it. These things that I have done, you shall do more because I go to the father.’ The superstar returned above and the moment he reached heaven, he said ‘Apostle Grace, go down on earth and show them.’ I came the day I got Born Again. The moment I entered the tabernacle, the angels told me, ‘welcome to the world of men.’ I am not ordinary. I am from above.

 Have you ever heard of microscopes, hospitals, the lame or influenza in heaven? That nonsense is not there.

There is a reason why Jesus never fell sick. He could be crucified and suffer all that pain but there is a reason he did not fall sick. When it came to sickness, he told God ‘papa am not that humble.’ It is humility. The bible says that he humbled himself and took on the form of a man. It is humility to be human. That is why he asked Nicodemus, why do you marvel when I say that I am from above?  The day you start to be normal and desire to live a predictable life in salvation, trust me that day, you will die. Spiritual death is a place where a man wants to be normal.

You are Christ on Earth

Galatians 3:16 says; Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

What this means is that if I say seeds, I mean descendants of Abraham but if I say seed, I mean one which is Christ.

Galatians 3:29 further says; And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

The Message Bible says in Galatians 3:16 that now, the promises were made to Abraham and to his descendant. You will observe that Scripture, in the careful language of a legal document, does not say “to descendants,” referring to everybody in general, but “to your descendant” (the noun, note, is singular), referring to Christ. 

The 29th verse says also, since you are Christ’s family, then you are Abraham’s famous “descendant,” heirs according to the covenant promises.

I told people that Moses preached the law enough and he became the law. 2 Corinthians 3:15 says that every time Moses is read. It does not say every time the law is read.

The devil entered the serpent enough until revelation referred to him as that serpent. He was not originally the serpent but he entered, ‘tabernacled’ in the serpent and revelation calls him that serpent. In fact, when you dream about a snake, you know that that is the devil, you do not say that that is an angel. If a snake can become the devil and the law can become Moses, how about you child of God? Didn’t you become Christ?

Some people claim that we are the body and we are not the head, Christ. In grammar, if I punched your chest and you fell down, they would not say that I punched the chest of the head. They would say that I punched a man.

When Paul was persecuting the church, Christ did not tell him, Paul, why are you persecuting my body? Rather he told him, why are you persecuting me? [Acts 9:4]. He did not say why do you persecute my body which is connected to the head which is Christ? When you touch a Christian, you touch Christ. When you attack a Christian you attack Christ. When you bite a Christian you bite Christ.

You are from above. When you ‘taberbacled’ into this earthly body, something about you changed. That is why we move in another realm, why I can know things before they happen. I am from above. I live in a realm that is much faster than the devil. The Bible says that the spirit quickeneth but the flesh profiteth nothing. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

You are from above. Speak to any circumstance in your life like you are from above. Speak to every situation like you are from above. You will experience the realm. Speak to your family, marriage, body, business, ministry and everything around you. Speak like you are a woman from above. The world is in trouble because of you. You are changing this world; you are changing Africa; you are changing   Asia; you are changing Europe, television, media and the military. You are full of God. You are full of the Holy Ghost. You are full of Jesus. He loves you. He cares for you. He is there for you. He intercedes for you. You will not fail in this life. No devil can stop you. Nothing can stop you. Nothing can stop a people who pray. Nothing can stop a people who know their God. Nothing can stop a people who know who they are in Christ. If God be for you then who can be against you?  Greater is He that is in you than the devil in the world. Enough is enough. You cannot fail. Weakness is far from you. Sickness is far from you. Witchcraft is far from you. You are an influence. You are a force. Jesus is with you. He says for ‘lo I am with you until the end.’ You are the man from above.

Understanding Your Fold

[Luke 8:8]; And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bear fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The Abundant Life.

When Mark speaks of thirty fold and Matthew speaks of sixty fold, Luke does not tell us thirty fold or sixty fold. Many Christians say that they shall produce thirty fold or sixty fold. There is something wrong with that because Luke does not speak of a thirty or sixty fold but he brings us to a hundred fold.  No mediocrity.

There are Christians who only want to be above average. Even when they go to class, they look for their results from downwards. When they reach the middle, they say, no, I did not check properly. When he gets to the top ten, he returns to the bottom of the list and tells himself that he needs to check more diligently.

When he gets to a hotel and asks for the menu, he does not look at the foods but rather at the price.  He asks, how much is chicken? What about meat? When he realizes the prices are high he says, ‘give me gonja.’ That’s not who we are!

Christians have lived a mediocre life, one barely above average, because they did not understand the scriptures. When Luke carries the understanding of the fold, he does not give thirty fold but talks of a hundred fold.

Why do you have a problem with abundance, child of God? There are people that are not comfortable with abundance. They claim that they do not want a lot of money that could cause them to forget God but they also do not want less that will put them under covetousness.

The Bible says that Abraham was rich in gold, cattle and silver. This is our father. The ministry of a son is that he must be greater than his father. That is when you prove that you draw from the father. Some claim the scripture that the love of money is the root of all evil. There is nothing wrong with money. The issue is the love and passion for money.  God says that silver and gold belong to him. The devil has no money. Money is not of the devil.

It is a Place of Understanding

It is a place of understanding. You can carry the life of abundance God has for you. He said that I have come that you might have life and that you might have life in abundance. Abundance is our calling. A hundred fold is your portion.

What happened to Luke? The Bible says in Luke 1:3 that Luke carried a perfect understanding. You can carry a perfection of the understanding of who you are by the seed that the fowls of the air cannot locate you.

Paul says that when I was a child, I spoke as a child, understood as a child and thought as a child. That is the breastmilk level.

Christians have lived on milk for so long. But listen child of God, milk cannot intoxicate you. At the milk level, the fowls of the air will find you, AIDS will kill you, and cancer will kill you. But there is a place where you are so intoxicated that HIV AIDS becomes Vitamin C.

We have fed Christians with milk for so long. We are still teaching the doctrine of baptism which the bible says is elementary. Jesus said that we shall lay hands on the sick and they shall be healed, but the apostle Paul comes after Jesus and says that the laying on of hands is elementary. This thing can come without the laying on of hands. The Apostle Paul is coming after Jesus with revelation. He has a revelation that Jesus said greater works shall you do.

If we are still on the elementary, we shall have unskillful men in the word of righteousness because they do not carry the understanding of the things that they have received because they have been fed with milk. Milk will not intoxicate you. The mind of the spirit is that you might drink the word.

Of the Baptism of the Spirit

The scriptures say be ye not drunk with wine but be ye filled with the Holy Ghost. In Acts 19:1-3, we read an account of Paul. It says, And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.

It means that there was another preacher that came to these men. He had another Jesus, another gospel and another spirit. The spirit he had was one that could not speak in tongues.

If we fail to bring men to the experience of what we have experienced then we have failed in our ministry because able ministers are able ministers not according to the letter but according to the spirit and the place of the spirit is the place of experiences. Christianity is an experience.

Unto what then were you baptized? Baptism means that we have been stained and overwhelmed by a nature of our baptism. We are drunk. We are crazy. We are overwhelmed because we were baptized into the Holy Ghost.

A Path Unreached

The mystery of understanding who you are is simple.  Then you will understand that as a seed, no foul of the air can eat you up.

My assurance as the seed that is sown by God is simple. If I am sown, even in the high way, the fowl cannot find me because Job 28:7-8; says, there is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen: The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

There is a ministry, a job and a marriage that no demon can destroy because they are sown in a path that no devil can reach. There is a place where the devil cannot attack you, a place where cancer cannot kill you, a place where no man can uproot you.
