Poem of inspirational & prophetic counsel: The Only Opinion that Matters

Introductory discourse:

Whose opinion really matters ? God’s or those of other people? Sadly not everyone treats others with the respect every human being merits. Some will choose to respect or treat others nicely,kindly or respectfully only based on what appeals to them in terms of the person’s economic/social status, culture, religion, nationality or race. This is the fallen ungodly nature still raging within. Let us examine our hearts and if we have this tendency to repent and ask God for forgiveness and cleansing. It is not too late to start afresh and change our ways.

We must always remember that who we are or our worth is not based on how people, society or the “status quo” defines us, but rather on who God Almighty defines us according to His Word. Can I get an Amen?!

Poem: This prophetic poem is intended to remind us, give us some uplifting and inspiration as we interact with one another:

The Only Opinion that Matters

If people complain “my you look so plain” or don’t like you ’cause of your hair and barely there or no make up flair
or whatever the superficial reason,
ask yourself “Whose opinion of me shall I put on the shelf,
the Most High’s or those who elevate self and denigrate other people’s worth?”
The Word of God never on the shelf
but in your heart is rich with God’s opinion to impart.

Christ did not entrust himself to man ’cause he knew what was in their hearts. Entrust yourself to God who declares all men equal,
as a creature in His image your unique outer and inner self is great to behold!
If saved by Christ, washed in his blood then brother, sister you are the righteousness of God and His workmanship in Christ Jesus, to do the works of God.
A clay jar you are with treasure within revealing that the excellency of power is of God and not of men.

Take heed to pay no attention to opinions that lead to destruction.
When some shun and reject you if they find your exterior wrapping unappealing,
it is true to say “a chance they have missed to be blessed by the treasure therein.”
Their blinded eyes deceiving them that they can see,
they live life in realms of superficiality rejecting the “skin deep” reality and end up drowning in a sea of frivolity.

God chose David to be Israel’s King not for his appearance but ’cause he was a man after God’s own heart.
Accept only the opinion of God who said “People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1)”,
and remember to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life (2)”.

Racism

-Awake & overcome the effects of this weapon of mass destruction utilised to sustain hatred and division among God’s creation.
men.

img_2808

Satan has cleverly made RACISM a taboo topic! ‘Cause he knows it is one of his greatest weapons to sustain his reign in the hearts of men and therefore in their interpersonal relationships.

Prevent people from talking about it and holding racists to account even in the church, then it stays a taboo, a hidden “we live in denial and pretence” mode, even (and I could go as far as saying especially) among Christians. This is one person (me) who does not conform to diabolical restraints and status quo of the demonic kind and boldly exposes Satan’s lies and schemes as God calls me to.

Hiddenness makes you Satan’s well caught & bound bait, as I learnt from experience – no more – God reveals to redeem! Nip that thing in the bud folks!

I.Poem: The Racist
II.What is racism ? The call to self-examine, pray & repent.

I. Poem: The Racist

Animals welcome their own kind in the fold. No exclusion nor disrespecting one or another ’cause of different skin colour, whether black, white or brown.

Not some human beings who stand on platforms, some in secret places, even masked as cowards on their mission to wound, kill and divide.

Few things are worst than the revolting stench out of the sewage funnel that’s the mouth of the oppressor, self proclaimed racist esquire.

Spewing hate, they provoke others to hate and unite forming a deadly chain used as a hangman’s noose while chanting “we are the superior race” or “we hate that race back cause they hated us first!”

What joy is found in debasing a fellow man? name calling and abusing him, even taking his life solely ’cause of the colour of his skin ?

Where is the God kind of love in the heart of such a one, self defined with pride as a racist? it has fled far away from cohorts of hate, their hearts in this state, a filthy play pen for legions of demons. O what a wretched fate!

A debased soul in the image of the anti-Christ is that of the racist, ravished by rage as maggots do rotten flesh, at the sight of others different to behold.

Here is the truth, I’ll say not once but twice, the end of the racist is eternal death, in a place of ceaseless torment even after death.

Indeed a point of no return is reserved for disrespecting men, those who mock and hate fellow humans at every turn!

II. What is racism? The call to self-examine, pray & repent

Let truth be told: Racism is a sin that not only defiles, but also permanently (unless repented of)
infirms the racist’s soul as do bitterness, unforgiveness, jealousy.

How? What is “poured out” from the Racist’s heart and lips and activated (foul language and actions) towards others is the same that infirms and defiles them.

Have racist tendencies? God forgives!
Be redeemed today by accepting Jesus Christ as LORD and Saviour by confessing your sins including that of racism and asking for forgiveness.

If you are a Christian confess your sin of racism for God is faithful to cleanse you from all unrighteousness and help you to overcome this diabolical behaviour, by first causing you to know or identify the root or how it became a normal and sinful attitude contrary to God’s word. It is good to know the root so that living a life of freedom if these “root” elements want to take root again or germinate you have awareness.

Also the essence of being a Christian is loving God and others (two greatest commandments). I don’t see anywhere in scripture that identifies precisely what race or nationality we should love or GIVE PRIORITY to loving over and above others.

A racist heart or a unified racist people will get nothing from God! Want revival? Well…

Many nations are escalating into heights of wickedness and lovelessness, racism (a form of lovelessness) or racial prejudice as never before and many Christians are praying “LORD heal our land” and all manners of praying especially for revival and needs. There is nothing wrong with that… But if only people would remember that God answers prayers based on conditions he expects us to fulfil then we would spend us much time (even more) putting our house in order or living to obey these conditions or commands, as we do praying for them! Then God will “cleans us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9) or heal the land (2 Chron. 7:14) if we humble ourselves and confess our sins.

Sin is sin!
It is time we called what is sin, sin, rather than ignoring some sins and highlighting others as if there was no tomorrow! and in the context of this discourse, Racism is SIN !! Fornication, unforgiveness, jealousy, hatred are sins so is RACISM! The racist who is a non Christian and the racist who is a Christian are both sinners period!

Let us examine our hearts and repent of racist/prejudice attitudes which are
-self augmentation through actions, words spoken and thoughts at the expense of /against others we deem inferior to us soley because of their race, racial background or nationality.
-reciprocating racists actions of others towards us makes us racists too! There is no sugarcoating to making excuses like : “well they deserve it! I am just doing what they do to me!”
-self-debasement /dislike /hate because we elevate or idolise others we deem superior to us or we are erroneously programmed to think they are (God created all men equal let that sear or cement in your soul!!!). Indirectly we accept the lies and become subconsciously racist against ourself – manifesting in self hate, hatred of our nation of origin or race…the response to racism suffered. Oh all of this can be so subtle but it is real!

It is time to awake! Racism and the weakness of being a racist or accepting the racist’s ideology as the victim – all diabolical nonsense, societal programming, anti-christ and therefore contrary to the will of God/Jesus Christ

Need regular prayers about this often neglected, un-repented sin of racism and even its negative influence in one’s life?

A Human Being? Then there is always more for You!

A word of encouragement:

img_2784

All God’s creation have potential to survive and to advance and so excel beyond what they think they are capable of.

The key to not only know this truth but ensure it manifests in one’s life is to partner with the I Am, who is the same yesterday today and forevermore more.

If He is what He is, He gave you and I potential by His Spirit through His son, Jesus to be as Him in our nature and supernatural ability, for we are created in His magnificent and glorious image.

It is time to excel beyond your current state in every area of your life! Take a hold of God given strategies, examples of victorious experiences or case studies through His Word (the Bible) as well as present day testimonies and be motivated, encouraged and inspired.

If God can do it for others, know that He loves you just as much and will do it (whatever it is you desire) for you too.

May God bless you!

Poem : Rise of the Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies Revolution

img_2812

Liars sing to the tune of a shrieking lyre, a deceptive song. Claiming to be in the light of God as leaders, peacemakers, church workers and members of notable fraternities.

They abide in darkness ’cause of hate for their brother of a different mother and father, from a different land altogether, a place much further.

Delusional and encaged in hollow rage they live in twilight and are sick in their minds ’cause of the deceiver’s dynamite.

They dwell in ancient chambers with hellish ideas of who is who, delighting in the master and slave relational status quo.

The window blinds to their heart are down. Blind they think they can see, a walking dead living on dead end street.

Embossed on their hearts as a badge of honour is hate for another race, one of a foreign land or religion and are chocked with unforgiveness towards their neighbour.

They drown in the sea of hate, spouting venom in divisive hood, beating the drum of falsehood, scheming a race and social war in many a neighbourhood.

Triumphant Warriors are on the rise; some on bended knees, others in action so the world can see, as they fight for God’s love and unity to be man’s keen priority.

Forever destroyers of satanic agendas and judgements, the heavenly regiment sound the Most High’s gong with this redemptive truth in their song:

“Forgive and you shall be forgiven by the Father. Love God and one another,
regardless of skin colour, race, social status and one’s gender”.

©Deborah E.Nyamekye 12/11/2016

Note: In the midst of it all…God orchestrates and allows events for his ultimate purposes (i.e hardening Pharaoh’s heart so that he reinforced his hand against Israelites …until God’s appointed time…to arise!) for judgement through suffering & ultimate glory.

In addition God speaks through events He allows AND REVEALS THE TRUE HEART CONDITION OF PEOPLE. A new era is upon us: a great showdown as never before of agents of truth/love (God) and lies/hate (Satan) in terms of interpersonal relations, with issues of tolerance, race, religion & social/economic class status being at the core of this reinforced spiritual war for souls manifesting in the natural.

Can you hear God speak, do you see the writing on the wall in significant world events?

Intercessors, Prayer Warriors Arise!!!

Cultivating Harmonious Co-Existence from a Christian Perspective

img_2617

-The “1-2-3 Domino effect” of the Two Greatest Commandments & the Power of forgiveness

“How we see ourselves, how we conduct our interpersonal relationships are fruitful unto God, only if our relationship with God is according to His commands”

“Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.38This is the first and great commandment.39And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself upon these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:36-40 KJV).

Point 1 – Point 2 – Point 3 Domino Effect
Let us ensure that the two greatest commandments are always at the forefront of our minds so that we
POINT 1 – Sustain a love-filled relationship with God through a worshipful life (e.g. bible study, praise, prayer..) which includes focus on God in all that we do and do them as unto Him.
This is the only way we can
POINT 2 – Love ourselves because it is in this place (intimacy with God) that we learn to love ourselves by understanding who we are in God and who He is to us.
As a result of Point 2 out-worked from Point 1 of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect (whatever position we hold in the Body of Christ or society – in God’s eyes a servant’s heart is the mark of an obedient heart – Jesus is our example),

We are able to
POINT 3 – Love our neighbours (anyone: friend, spouse, colleague, acquaintance etc…however they treat us); this means we are able to demonstrate God’s love through us to others meaning
– we are able to have compassion for people,
– empathise with them,
– care about their feelings so as to be cautious how we treat them, ensuring we are not doing or saying anything to hurt them nor imposing our will or controlling them and
-treat others as we would like to be treated.
Prayer: Father, help us in our weakness so that we live according to these two greatest commandments. Thank you for answering this prayer in my life and that of my brethren. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray Amen.
The Power of Forgiveness

Satan exerts himself in his attempt to ruin interpersonal relationships in general and especially those between Christian friends, spouses, ministers, work colleagues and acquaintances, because he is a sly crafty, cunning fool who will do anything to attempt to bring chaos in the harmony that is the “1-2-3 Domino Effect” of the Two Greatest commandments.
Let us take heed not to let the hurts inflicted upon us from childhood through to adulthood or what people are doing currently to hurt or upset us (it may not even be deliberate) prevent us from having or sustaining the peace we have in the knowledge that we are lovable or significant human beings created in the image of God and restored as such through Christ for His pleasure and purposes. The born again experience opens the door for us to be healed from lies satan has said about who we are and our worth especially through others. Our healing starts with forgiving all those who have hurt us directly or indirectly and contributed to these lies about our identity and worth.
Forgiveness by God and therefore making peace with Him is conditional to our forgiving others. This is why Jesus included these words in the prayer he taught his disciples to pray 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Matthew 6:12KJV).
There is an assumption in this prayer that Jesus’ disciples know that they should forgive others so that God will forgive them.
Jesus emphasised the importance of praying that way (verse 12) by saying: “14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14-15 KJV).
When we forgive it means we are no longer sinning against God, for un-forgiveness is a sin. Therefore through forgiveness of others we receive forgiveness from Father God which results in our being cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). This makes a way for us to have fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. Many of us have heard about how people have been healed from physical and emotional sickness when they consciously forgave others who had hurt or afflicted them. Forgiveness is very powerful. Un-forgiveness is a decision not to demonstrate the love of God to our “neighbour” (Point 3 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect), it is therefore disobedience. Disobedience is sin and sin separates us from God. Sin prevents us from loving God with all our heart, mind and soul (Point 1 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect). Without loving God, we cannot see ourselves the way God sees us nor love ourselves as He loves us (Point 2 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect).

Even as believers in Christ, if we refuse to forgive others, the resulting separation from God and being blinded to His truths and our identity in Him is such that we increasingly become self-dependent, self-indulgent or self-centered beings which are all marks of the fallen nature which is the image or reflection of Lucifer the fallen angel called Satan. Lucifer’s transformation from being an angel who was dependent on God and worshipped Him to become a self-centered angel manifested as pride. Self-centeredness and self-elevation are synonymous. In his pride, Satan wanted to take the place of God, to ascend the throne of God (Isaiah 14). Pride comes before the fall indeed, for Lucifer fell and anyone who detracts from living to be who God created them to be, in His image that is, is destined to reflect Satan’s prideful image unto destruction.
Forgiveness is the key to overcoming Satan’s attempts at creating discord, causing contention and hatred between Christians so that they do not demonstrate the love of God for one another (Point 3 of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect). This is often because when people are hurt, they are likely to fall into temptation as they are angry, discouraged, disappointed and begin to exercise thoughts of retaliation which range from either not speaking to the one who has hurt them or doing something to hurt them as well.
Your “neighbour” is not necessarily a fellow Christian and approaching them to make peace means you desire to obey God’s command that you love your neighbour. Your neighbour could also be your enemy, in relation to this Jesus taught as follows:
You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. (Matthew 5:43-46 NLT)
The importance of forgiveness is reinforced by Jesus, expressing the heart of God on the matter, when he said that
-you must forgive those who have sinned against you not 7 times but 70 x 7 times (Matthew 18:21-22); In other words forgiveness should be a perpetual lifestyle attitude of a children of God.
-when you are bringing your offering to God and you remember that someone has something against you then you must first go and reconcile with them before doing so. (Matthew 5:23-24)
To emphasis the point about Jesus wanting us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us, he also said that in so doing we “will be acting as true children” of our Father in Heaven (Matt.5:45NLT). In other words we would be acting as a loving Father. God also loves and cares about that person (whether they are Christians or not) who has something against you or who has afflicted you and so should you is what Jesus was effectively saying in these aforementioned verses in the biblical book of Matthew (Chapters 18:21/5:23-24, 43-46); The phrase “..He (God) gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike” sums God’s impartiality clearly and powerfully. (Matt.5:46NLT).
It is evident therefore that the responsibility to cultivate harmonious co-existence through expressing the Love of God, lies with the disciple of Jesus and forgiveness is the key. When used therefore, this key not only opens the door to a sustained relationship of love with God but it also serves to keep us within the cyclical realm of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect of the Two Greatest Commandments all the days of our lives.

Poem: God’s Bridge of Love

You are a bridge of love for your neighbour to traverse and progress in my love, no more to transgress nor regress and drown in sin.
Your neighbor is one who
favours my conditional love or labours for artificial love.

Pour thy love upon me that
my treasury shall release plenty
into thy poverty, and you shall see my face unveiled, for at my gaze shall you know your worth.

When you walk with me as my bride and talk of me with pride, as a living sacrifice, and demonstrate my love to the loveless,
promote my Word to enemies
and use the key of forgiveness,
Then shall I draw near to you, and shall show you forth as a shofar with the sound “GOD IS LOVE”.
A passage of refuge for multitudes to know and abide in my LOVE.

Poem: Receive The Master’s Peace

IMG_2613.JPG

Introduction: The workings of the Master’s Peace among humanity:
This poem not only imparts blessings of God but gives counsel in how to be an instrument of peace through expressions of love, forgiveness and prayer for one’s enemies.

Receive the Master’s Peace

Be anxious for naught and pray for what you ought.
God’s peace will unfold as a treat,
if a slave to worry you are not.
Peace like a barging river shall knock down fortes of
deceit in your heart to
cause the enemy to retreat.
Peace like a fighter plane shall land on the combat fields of your soul to dethrone the Prince of this World, end the cycle of disorder
to commence divine order.

A peace foreign to this world in chaos because it knows not its Master and His ethos.
Who is its Master?
He is the Prince of Peace who says to his own “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”1.
On a mount he sat and taught
“blessed are the peacemakers they shall be called children of God”
So be blessed, not stressed.

Do not retaliate but demonstrate his love to haters.
Trade anger with prayer for users and live to unite dividers.
With your mates create colonies in a bond of peace and be the harmonies to iron out creases.
Blessed vessel of peace, wrestle for the increase of God’s government and peace to have no end.
