It Is Unfortunate, but there is Hope Still.

I find that we live in a time in which people would rather lie than be truthful to themselves about those things which matter the most to them.
A world in which people hide their thoughts and motives and only reveal those things which they think others will be pleased and not shocked to hear.
A disadvantaged world indeed, that fills the wise with sorrow and makes those who see feel like their blessing is a cursing.
This world does not care, it is not concerned about others and it brings grief to the concerned, it is really unfortunate.
And there is a saying that goes, seek first to understand than to be understood, but what happens when in a conversation you are the only one with the regard to understand others, understanding them and not being understood in return?
This world is a careless world, consumed with breathing and making a living, and yet forgetting the most basic thing about life, which is to live. But to live is not only to breathe, or to eat or drink or sustain life, to live is to grow and to see, to feel and to speak, to understand and to express, to produce.
Oh yes, it can be unfortunate sometimes to be concerned about the life which we are not prepared to live, to grow in, to feel and speak, to understand and to express, to produce.
This is all that was in my heart, something that I had to take out before I could die by succumbing to being in the world, this careless world.
It is indeed unfortunate that some people are born only to die without having breathed, yes they have ate, drank, walked and talked, but what is all that without having learnt something from it all. How does one walk for 20 years without perfecting that walk? How do we eat for a long time without gaining the experience of doing it right?
Some people are people only because they look like people, not because they act as people or be a people, and it is unfortunate indeed.
I can see that the world does not care, I won’t inquire on why it does not care because it won’t care to give an answer, my wanting is that those who see these things happening around them should speak and not keep quiet about them. Life is not build out of nothingness, something has to happen for it to continue, and there is no better opportunity to start doing that now by starting to live.
Because we allow ourselves to be slaves, we keep on doing those things which bring us pain and affliction, on and on we keep on engaging in them and with them, but for how long are we going to continue doing that? Where is the faith? Let us start living now, today, because tomorrow is not promised!

Now That Since We Are In Christ (it takes Christ)

I tried searching for the meaning of what blessing means, on Google. It all seemed complicated and confusing, so therefore I decided to share something about what I think blessing is, from my heart I deliver this.

We are Christians, and without a doubt Christ is the true meaning of blessing. How blessed are we that He chose to share Himself as a blessing with us, the forgiven and children of God. I still don’t know what I am to write but I am hoping that by the end of this letter, to us, I would at least have something regarding blessing or being blessed.

They call it being in the favour of the Lord and that is true I won’t refuse. Blessing, as I say it in my heart, it sounds like heavenly language, like heavenly speech, perhaps it is because the one who wears it lives there, He lives in heaven. And not long ago I have read about how That Man, who lives in heaven, wants to empty himself outside of heaven and to come live within us, so that we too can live within Him. Who am I kidding, He already does live within us and we do already live within Him. (He is not YHWH for will do and will not. He is YHWH for I AM BLESS you) I guess the blessing within all of this will be for us to fully realise this magnitude of truth invisible to the physical eye and clearly visible to that eye which is of the Spirit. His Spirit and not ours. (We were bought with a price and no longer belong to ourselves). His Eyes, not ours, He, Himself, and not us in ourselves, we are no more. You see, it takes Christ to recognise blessing, it takes his eyes to see it, His Spirit to fully comprehend it. I still do not know what I am talking about, but I don’t have to worry about that because I know and am certain that the Christ within all of us does know what I am talking about, Him and not us, Him in us and not us within ourselves.

The blessing which is Christ is such that we do not have to do anything to attain it, blessing is freely given. We just have to believe. I take it that to believe is a verb, a doing word, an act of doing something, but how do we believe really? Can we believe by ourselves? I seriously at this moment in time do not see how I could believe by myself. Perhaps that is a blessing in disguise because it makes me to become aware that even in our believing, it takes Jesus Christ and not us, that in anything that pertains to Christ Jesus, it takes Christ to realise Christ. We believe because of Christ Jesus and by Christ Jesus. Again I might not be making sense, but I am taught that it is the foolish things that make more sense than the wise things that do not.
So yes, it takes a blessing to be blessed and to bless; it takes Christ Jesus our Lord, the blessing of God, that blessing which is God, to bless that which is to be blessed, which is the Christ within us. In other words when I bless you I am really blessing Christ and when you bless me you are really blessing Christ for it is no longer us who live but Christ Jesus who lives in us, To Christ then, and by Christ, do I bless each and everyone one of you sisters and brothers, In Jesus Christ’s Name, in his fullness, I bless you.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)

The Anointing of the Holy Spirit

I have learned something very interesting and eye opening on the 17th of July whilst I was going through a Facebook profile of my sister, Kaley Mayer. In it she asks the question: What is the meaning of the anointing of the Holy Spirit? and then she goes on to answer it by saying that it is nothing less and nothing other than the Holy Spirit taking His place as absolute LORD.

That made me realise that to be anointed by the Holy Spirit is to be under the complete Headship of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is to be In Christ and Christ being in you and you living your life by the life of Christ.

We have been taught of the anointing of the Holy Spirit as anything other than being under the complete control of the Lord. When men are called or are said to have the anointing of the Holy Spirit is when they are usually put on a pedestal and seen as great brethren among many brethren, when they are seen as the special ones among many others, when they touch you, you are to fall to the ground because of this great anointing their holding, but it is not so.

When such things appear, Man should not glory in himself for it is only by grace that such things are happening through him. All the glory and the honour should be to the Lord that indeed Christ does live in us and that it is by him that we live, not by ourselves, matter of factly we are no more in control of our own lives, we have been bought with a price and therefore do not belong to ourselves. We have been bought with a price that we cannot afford to pay back, but a price that affords us the opportunity to live life eternally, not by ourselves, but through Christ our strength and our life, the very breath we breathe, our daily bread, the water of life, our most basic and most advanced source of life.

Therefore, it is by the LORD that we live, not by ourselves. We are in him because he has anointed us with Holy Spirit, we are covered in Him, our anointing.

P.S. Kaley Mayer has a site called The Endless Riches Of Jesus Christ, you can find the link to her site on my blogroll :)

We Cannot Earn Love For Ourselves.

Love does not require human effort in order for it to be earned.
Matter of factly, love cannot be earned.
Love is Freely given, shared and not laboured for.

Love is of God and those things that are of God and are god
have been freely given us as gifts so that we may not pride
in ourselves for having received that which is for all God's

It shall be liberating to us all to learn that we can do nothing of
ourselves to earn love for it was for love, that we have received
before the beginning of time, that we are here.

Let us go on loving, as we were called to.

I share this because it has freed me from trying to love better
or in the best way I could think of. Love has no measure.
