Taken Your Love Break Today?

John 15:9 - “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved u; abide in My love.

In your workplace, u probably take coffee breaks, lunch breaks, tea breaks & definitely toilet breaks. Why not do the same in your spiritual life — take time out 4 breaks, especially love breaks?

What is a love break? It is the time u take 2 enjoy & feed on the love of Jesus 4 u. At any time during the day, wherever u are, find a quiet spot & feed on the love of Jesus. Just sit down & talk 2 Him. Say 2 Him, “Thank You, Jesus, 4 loving me. Nothing is going 2 happen 2 me that You don’t already know about. Jesus, when I could not save myself, You died 4 me. You gave up Your life 4 me. What else will You not do 4 me!”

Such love breaks are typified in the Old Testament by Aaron the high priest & his sons eating the breast of the animal sacrificed. (Leviticus 7:31) The breast of the animal speaks of the love of Jesus. Today, u are a priest 2 God. (Revelation 1:6) So spend time feeding on the love of Jesus 4 u, & see yourself nourished, strengthened & sustained by His love. Jesus is our High Priest today. This means that His food is in loving us. He enjoys loving us & is also “nourished” by His love 4 us.

But do not forget that the breast was roasted by fire (Leviticus 7:35), which speaks of God’s judgment on

Jesus as He hung on the cross bcoz He was carrying our sins. So as u feed on Jesus’ love 4 u, see Him loving u at the cross. When things around u are not going well, do not allow the devil 2 say 2 u, “If God loves u, how come these things are happening 2 u?” My friend, interpret God’s love 4 u based on the cross, not on your present circumstances.

During the day, when u are hard at work, when busyness sets in, when problems pile up or when discouragement comes, just stop everything & take a love break with Jesus! Let Jesus love u. Let yourself enjoy being loved by Him. Lean on His bosom, abide in His love & be nourished by His love 4 u!

Acts 2:46 - So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, & breaking bread from house 2 house, they ate their food with gladness & simplicity of heart,

Back then in the early church, Christians would meet each other every day, either corporately in the temple or from house 2 house in smaller groups. And when they met in their homes, the Bible tells us that they would break bread. That’s the Holy Communion, & they took it every day!

Now, I am not saying that u must take the Holy Communion every day. But if u feel led 2 & u want 2, go ahead! The thing about taking the Holy Communion daily is this: If u are sick, u can be made well on a gradual basis. This means that u get healthier & stronger from day-2-day — first 30-fold, then 60-fold, then a 100-fold!

You see, while u can receive healing through the prayer of faith (Mark 11:24), it sometimes puts pressure on u bcoz it requires u 2 believe that u receive it all — complete healing — the moment u pray. There is nothing wrong with the prayer of faith, but u may find yourself saying, “I must believe I receive it all, now! I must believe I have it all, now!”

But the Holy Communion allows u 2 receive a measure of healing every time u partake in faith, so that u get better & better. The more u take it, the better u become. There is no pressure 2 believe that u receive it all at once. Isn’t God good? He meets u at your level of faith!

Now, there are cases I know of in our church, in my family & in my own life, where the manifestation of healing is immediate & complete. If it happens that way, praise God! But if not, don’t worry. The more u partake, the better u will become.

I know of people who take the Holy Communion 3 times a day, just like they would medicine! Why not? My friend, if u are very sick & u are diligently taking your medication 3 times a day, why not give the Lord’s Supper the same amount of attention? Why not boost your recovery rate? And the next time u eat the bread & drink the cup, u may just find your disease totally gone!

Remain Steadfast In The Faith

1 Peter 5:8–9 - Be sober, be vigilant; bcoz your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9Resist him, steadfast in the faith…

When I was a teenager, I was taught that if I wanted 2 resist the devil, I had 2 rebuke him. So whenever an evil thought came 2 my mind or I was tempted, I found myself saying, “I resist u, devil, in Jesus’ name! I bind u, devil! Go away from me, devil! I rebuke u in Jesus’ name!”

This went on until God showed me one day that though I had “resisted” the devil, I had spent more time talking 2 him than 2 God! I was more conscious of the devil than of God throughout the day.

I checked the Word of God & realized that we resist the devil not by focusing on resisting him, but by being established in the faith that we are made right with God through Jesus’ blood, that we are the righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Yes, the devil will continue 2 remind u of your mistakes, failures & sins. And he will tell u that bcoz of these things, u cannot receive your healing, that u will have 2 pay 4 your mistakes or that something bad will happen 2 your family. He will accuse u, condemn u and try 2 persuade your heart 2 believe that he can do bad things 2 u.

But the truth is that the devil cannot enforce anything in your life if he cannot persuade your heart. And your heart cannot be persuaded if it is “steadfast in the faith”, if it is established in righteousness. God says that once u are established in righteousness, “You shall be far from oppression, for u shall not fear; & from terror, for it shall not come near u”. (Isaiah 54:14)

So now that my heart is established in righteousness, I can boldly declare, “Yes, I may have these problems in my life, but I am not guilty in God’s eyes. I am justified in God’s eyes by faith bcoz of what Christ has done. I am righteous by Jesus’ blood!” My friend, that is how u resist the devil & become undevourable!

Fight From Victory, Not 4 Victory

Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole amour of God, that u may be able 2 stand against the wiles of
the devil.
God does not need u 2 defeat the devil today. Jesus has already done it & given u the victory. (Colossians 2:15, Romans 8:37) Your part is 2 enforce the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. In other words, u “fight” from victory ground by standing. You don’t fight 4 victory.

In Ephesians 6:10–18, the passage on spiritual warfare, the word “wrestle” appears only once (verse 12), while the word “stand” appears 4 times — “stand against the wiles of the devil”, “withstand in the evil day”, “having done all, 2 stand”, “Stand therefore”. (Verses 11, 13–14) Four times the Holy Spirit tells us 2 stand. Yet, many Christians are focusing on wrestling their way 2victory!
My friend, u are already on victory ground. You already have everything in Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23) U are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3). The devil knows this. And that is why his tactic is 2 deceive u & make u think that u don’t have the victory.
So when he attacks u by saying, “Look at that small sum in your bank account! How are u going 2 pay the bills?” stand your ground. Declare, “I am not trying 2b rich, I am rich. In Christ, I am rich!" It doesn’t matter how much u have in the bank. You are rich bcoz u are in Christ. And as the need arises, the supply will be there if u believe that u are already rich.

It is the same with healing. The devil will try 2 attack u with symptoms in your body. He will try 2 put pain in your body, & make u feel weak here & there, so that u think that u are still sick. He is trying 2 make u believe that u don’t have your healing. That is the time 2b conscious of Jesus’ finished work & declare, “I am not trying 2 get healed, I am healed! I am standing on the victory ground which Jesus has given me!”
Beloved, it makes a world of difference when u fight from victory & not for victory!

PSALM Healing 12th

 Psalm 12

LORD!  HELP!  GODLY men are fast disappearing.  Where in all the world can dependable men be found?  Everyone deceives and flatters and lies.  There is no sincerity left.

But the Lord will not deal gently with people who act like that; He will destroy those proud liars who say, "We will lie 2 our hearts' content.  Our lips are our own; who can stop us?"  The replies, "I will arise and defend the oppressed, the poor, the needy.  I will rescue them as they have longed 4 Me 2 do." 

The Lord's PROMISE is sure.   He speaks no careless word; all He says is purest Truth, like silver seven times refined.  O LORD, we know that You will forever perseve Your own from the reach of evil men, although they prowl on every side and vileness is praised through-out the land.

What Do U See?

Mark 11:24 - Therefore I say 2 u, whatever things u ask when u pray, believe that u receive them, & u will have them.
A blind lady was led 2 a great healing evangelist for prayer. After he had prayed for her, he asked her, “Now, tell me what u see.” She opened her eyes only 2b told, “Close your eyes. Tell me what u see.” She opened her eyes again only 2b told, “I didn’t say 2 open your eyes. I asked u what u saw. Close your eyes! Now, tell me what u see.”
This went on for a while, until the lady realized that the evangelist was asking her what she saw on the inside. Did she see herself seeing? When she understood that, she said, “I see myself with sight.” Then, the evangelist told her, “Now, slowly open your eyes.” That moment, she opened her eyes 2 perfect vision!
When u prayed just now, what did u see inside u? Were u praying for someone’s healing, but seeing that person in a coffin? Were u praying for a financial breakthrough, but seeing the banks pursuing u till u were bankrupt?
You see, u don’t get what u pray for. You get what u believe u receive when u pray. Jesus said, “Therefore I say to u, whatever things u ask when u pray, believe that u receive them, and u will have them.”
Beloved, “whatever things” covers your every need. And believing that u receive them comes b4 having them. Jesus once told a centurion, “Go your way; and as u have believed, so let it be done for u.” The centurion’s servant was healed that same hour. (Matthew 8:13) The centurion believed that he received his miracle even b4 he saw it in the natural.
So when u pray, what do u really believe and see on the inside?

“Well, Pastor Prince, I really can’t see it.”
Then don’t pray yet. Change your vision on the inside first. Start seeing yourself with the answer. See yourself healed. See yourself living in the bigger house that u need. See yourself enjoying more than enough. When u can see it and believe it, then pray in faith, and u will have whatever u ask for!

God Is Not Judging U

Romans 8:33 - Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
Some people see God as a judge who has exacting demands on man. When they fall short or when things go wrong in their lives, they think that God is judging them.

My friend, the truth is that if u are a believer, God does not bring any charge against u. Instead, He justifies u bcoz of the blood of His Son. In fact, God’s Word goes on 2 say that the One who has the right 2 condemn u, chose instead 2 die 4 u and is risen at the Father’s right hand 2b your righteousness! (Romans 8:34).

But what the devil tries 2 do is 2 get u 2 believe that God watches u with a critical eye and punishes u when u do wrong. He has deceived many sincere Christians into believing that if they have done something wrong, sickness or some other evil thing has a right 2 come upon them and their families. And when these things happen, he convinces them that they are suffering God’s judgment bcoz of their wrong doings. In the meantime, these sincere Christians struggle with condemnation bcoz they think that they are the cause of their problems.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Ever since the cross, where Jesus was judged in your place 4 every one of your wrong actions, thoughts & words, God no longer judges u, His child. You need not accept condemnation or evil things happening 2 u bcoz Jesus took all your punishment at the cross.

So when u start 2 feel condemned for your actions or when u experience negative circumstances, say, “It is written: It is God who justifies me. I am completely forgiven and made righteous b4 Him. I refuse 2 accept any condemnation and I reject every symptom of the curse that I am seeing in my circumstances!”
Then, simply stand on the truth of God’s Word, and watch Him deliver and bless u!

Jesus Has The Final Word

Revelation 1:8 - “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beg & the End," says the Lord…

The doctor has just told u that u have an incurable disease. The X-rays & blood tests confirm it.Your worst fears have come true & u feel like your future has been sealed.

My friend, the doctor’s report is not final. Jesus declares 2 u, “I Am the Alpha & the Omega, theBeginning & the End.” (Revelation 1:8) He has the first word as well as the final word in your situation. The experts & medical reports don’t!

Alpha & omega are the first & last letters of the Greek alphabet. But Jesus did not speak Greek.He spoke Aramaic or Hebrew. So He would have said, “I am the Aleph & the Tav.” Aleph & Tavare the first & last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. So what Jesus is declaring 2 us is this: "I have the first word in your situation. And I have the final word in your situation!”

Each Hebrew letter has a corresponding picture. Interestingly, aleph is associated w/an ox & Tav, a cross. Together, they make up a beautiful picture of what Jesus did 4 us — He is the sacrificial“animal” on the cross. It was 4 us that He suffered, bled & died.

When Jesus hung on the cross, He took our infirmities & bore our sicknesses. (Matthew 8:17). That is why your sickness does not have the final word in your life. Jesus does, bcoz He took your sickness upon His body & paid 4 your healing w/His blood.

When Jesus hung on the cross, He took our curse. (Galatians 3:13) We were supposed 2b cursed bcoz of our sins, but He took our place & the curse fell on Him. Today, we take His place & His blessings fall on us!
So why settle 4 the curse of sickness or even poverty when the price 4 your healing & prosperity has been paid by Jesus? Sickness & poverty do not have the final word in your life. Jesus does bcoz He redeemed u from every curse!

Beloved, when man says that it is impossible, Jesus says that it is possible. The Alpha & the Omega, the Beginning & the End, has the final word in your situation!
