Made Strong By The Word

"How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word." (Psalm 119:9)
He does great harm to his own soul, he who neglect the word of God; for he cannot but fall into temptation again and again having despised the anchor of his soul which is the word of God.
Man 'without' God is a 'mass' of weakness; it is wisdom therefore to take advantage of the stre

ngth of God by latching unto His word by reading, studying, meditating and acting it.
Real, indomitable strength is divine (Psalm 62:11) and humans can only walk in this divine attribute by taking a careful heed to the word of God.
Moral strength, Spiritual and Physical can only be by the word of God.
Have you been captivated by your weakness and shortcomings? If you ll give yourself over to meditation in the word of God, you will soon see yourself walking in the very strength of God as though you were never 'down'. blessed?

You Are Not of The World!

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." (John15:19)
Many times Jesus told His disciples with a strong affirmative tone that they are not of the world.
The epistles from Romans to Jude and even revelation as well as book of Acts are replete with sim

ilar words of admonition telling believers that we re strangers and aliens here on earth, and the need to live as such. Viz:

"This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ"

Romans 12:2
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind..."

The Greek word (ekklesia) from which the English word 'Church' is derived means 'the called-out ones'. We have been CALLED, OUT of the world, not for malicious discrimination but TO SHINE AS LIGHT (Phil.2:15).
He who called us has recreated us and thereby has given us a new spirit (1Cor.2:12) and that is what has set us apart from the world. There might not be physical difference between us and the world - in terms of looks and stature, location and where we work e.t.c - but there is a great spiritual distinction between the believers and the rest of the world.
Its therefore the responsibility of the man born again to be fully conscious and to continue to maintain the consciousness of who he is in Christ Jesus as recorded in scriptures and by so doing he ll be able 'to keep himself unspotted from the world' (James1:27). blessed?

Qoute From Reinhard Bonke

"A church is not a signs and wonders club, a tongues movement, or a healing clinic. Far in front of all the phenomena is the teaching and the preaching of the Word of God, though in power and demonstration. Miracles are the support system of the truth. God bless." REINHARD BONNKE
