Ability to be a Somebody

A nobody can become a
somebody some day.
If not today or tomorrow it
shall be one day, ’cause
everybody has the ability.

It is possible if you do not lose focus or direction but set your sights on your vision, based on wisdom from the Divine Book of instruction.

Use the key of divine knowledge to open doors. Advance at the beat of the sound of your vision calling,
the pace is set by the rhythm of the songs of your heart resounding.

In the ascent to be a somebody, joys and trials are unwrapped as gifts, moulding for you a heart of integrity.

The blessed vision is a reflection of the somebody you have aimed to be beckoning as from the sky,
full of wisdom and knowledge of the Most High.

Be a somebody today to help a nobody find their way some day.

EXHORTATION – A Christlike Self Perspective: Never disabled, forever unstoppable

Let nothing & no one call you “disabled” (incapable, unable, unworthy, insignificant etc…)

Will you allow others to label you and so define you? Will you accept their definition of you as opposed to God’s ? The negative definition that seeps into not only your conscious mind but also your subconscious, resulting in self limitation, under-valuing your capabilities or even prevents you from seeing what you are capable of!

The state of being “disabled” whether physical or spiritual is a matter of perspective. If you have a life in God, one of your key taglines should be “I am always capable through Christ”. Don’t be like a prisoner
-who has had their chains removed but is still standing in a bound position.
-whose prison doors are open but he cannot see it and is still sitting in the prison. Jesus came to set the captives free (Isaiah 61).

When in Christ, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life, regardless of your

✝️physical state, Nick Vujicic is an example, he said
“I don’t believe I am disabled. Yes, I may have no limbs, but no big deal. It doesn’t matter how I look—
it’s WHO I AM and WHAT I CAN DO that matters!”
(in picture below) check out his life story and achievements to the glory of God.

✝️youth: David who became king of Israel was a youth when God started to use him. By God’s power and might he was able to fight against the lion and the bear while tending to his sheep in the wilderness.
He developed the “I can” self perspective that was from God, so that the giant enemy of Israel, Goliath feared by adults of the army of Israel was “chicken feed” in his eyes.
God brought David up to believe he could do all things through God who strengthened him. This ought to minister to us as to how to bring up children or young people. The perspective of one’s self is so important and will determine the course of one’s life.
In our day, God is using young people mighty as it was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:25).

✝️little or no education: God gives wisdom and ability to excel for His sake and there are many cases of men and women of God who have not had the privilege of being educated at all or have very elementary education, who are doing exploits for God while demonstrating His wisdom and anointing as they do so.

Let us always see ourselves as children of God who can do all things through Him and Him alone.
Jesus said
“5I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.”(John 15:5-6 KJV)

It is time for us to discard limiting self-perspectives and live in the reality of Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

God’s Calling, Gifts and Anointing are not Gender Selective

anointing
Introduction
God’s word is clear: His callings, gifts and anointing for five fold ministry and general service are not reserved to any specific gender. This inspirational teaching literally burst forth out of me (it is the only way I can describe it), after reading a post on Facebook on 17th September 2016 and I believe it was inspired by the Holy Spirit; a mere summary of a vast topic which I hope enlightens as well as encourages both men and women.
Cutting into shreds the “Women are not called into church or ministry leadership” false doctrine
Are women called into church or ministry leadership as men are? In this day and age there are still people who are opposed to women preaching and being leaders in ministry. I read a Facebook post on the morning of 17th September in which a woman mentioned how she got into a heated argument with a man about this subject. I was inspired to write about this matter in a manner that made me feel like I was once again cutting the ordinance of that deceptive age old anti-Christ doctrine to shreds with the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Women in God ordained leadership positions:
Old Testament:
-Deborah the prophetess/counsellor had a recognised leadership position in Israel.
-Anna was a prophetess who spent day and night interceding as she awaited the coming of the Messiah. If God felt women were not to be His ministers He would have only chosen Simeon or a man instead of Anna.
New Testament:
-Lydia the business woman/trader who had a prayer ministry.
-The Samaritan woman according to Josephus the Jewish Historian became a notable missionary who travelled around.
There were many others.
If it was not for the restrictions of the culture in ancient times, I believe more women would have risen up in the first century church to be ministers for Jesus’ strategic meeting with the Samaritan woman speaks louder than words, he was breaking many cultural restrictions I.e Jews not supposed to speak to Samaritans or even go through their land, and not supposed to speak to a woman openly the way Jesus did…
Jesus is the means through whom the new covenant (Jer. 31:31-33) to Israel was fulfilled and presented to the world at large.
31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
If anyone reads Jer:31:31-33, is there reference to gender restrictions? There is none.
If Jesus felt he was going against the will and plan of God (remember he only did what God instructed him) he would never have allowed
1)Mary the sister of Martha to sit at his feet to listen to him, as a disciple would a “Rabbi”.
2)an entourage of women to follow him from town to village as he went about teaching and healing …
I believe these women were also disciples in the true sense of the word, taught by Jesus but they were not recognised culturally as such. You cannot follow someone around for a length of time without learning from them, especially one such as Jesus.
Was it wrong for women to be taught and amass knowledge from Jesus and risk becoming as knowledgeable as Rabbis? Obviously according to Jesus it was not.
Culture /traditions of men did not accept it, but Jesus did it anyway.
My, my, my that anti-Christ (contrary to Christ) spirit of cultural/traditional resistance to women advancing in equal measure with man as according to God’s decree is still very much alive and kicking TODAY in the church posing deceptively to be of God/Christ. It is an age old limiting spirit that is exposed and will never prevail in Jesus’ mighty name Amen.
If this biblical verse which speaks of Jesus’ purpose is really true:
“26For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29And if ye [be] Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”(Gal 3:28 KJV),
then it is also true that women are also called to preach, teach and minister with the same anointing of God that is impartial or selective of any one gender (there is no “male or female” in Christ) Born again Christian Women are also called to church leadership office because they, as born again men, are also chosen by God to either be Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Evangelists and Pastors as well as other church functions I.e deacons, administrators.
Despite some of the things Paul said e.g. that women should be quiet in church (which I believe was because within the context of that culture women were not allowed to pursue leadership positions and were also in that particular region known to be making too much noise in gatherings), which some people have used to prevent women from church leadership positions, he was careful not to make statements during his writing about giftings & callings in the book of Corinthians which would imply that he was saying that there were gender restrictions. He knew that if he did he would be lying.
It is time for people who have been falsely indoctrinated to be delivered from those false teachings and be restored to the truth of God’s word. My prayer is that multitudes who are deceived will be enlightened by God and may those who prefer to stay blinded to the truth of God’s Word be prevented by God from being obstacles to the advancement of those who are predestined by God to be His instruments in ministry, whether they are male or female. Amen!

The Me I Know

multicoloured

The me I know is called black
that’s okay for it’s but a word,
a description of the colour
that’s my skin.

The me I know is God’s
that’s okay for it is the me reborn,
a state of being that’s in the
here and now and for His
purpose, I so define.

The me I know, knows her worth,
that’s okay for it’s a mindset shift,
a knowing of true self,
enabled by whose I am,
the divine.

The me I know who is His,
has escaped, that’s okay, for
it is time for release from
ancient potholes marked
“unworthy” to embrace the
liberation of the Saviour of
nations.

Soaring with healed wings
away from the snare of the
fowler and refusing a status
defined with distaste by
my external colour.

The me I know lives in the
reality of her Saviour’s
finished work among remnant
saints a family of nations and
tribes of a multicoloured hue,
that’s okay for we are one,
the human race.

God brings Dreams to Pass

(Redemption storytelling poem)

Up and down the land she walked,
as a wanderer seeing naught and
feeling lost, she sighed and cried
“I have stalled ‘cause of the
fog and drought”.
Even within, she felt barren and dry
wanting to pray but too weak to try.

Then came a light so bright before her face,
but looking around she saw no one in that place.
Within her heart, she heard a voice say loud & clear
“I am the Light of the World who loves you, my dear”.
Then he placed a fountain in her heart and said
“Out of you shall flow rivers of living water
to quench your thirst, so you shall never falter”.

Then suddenly her heart became a well watered verdant land,
from her mouth was a melodious waterfall,
and her eyes were awash with God’s salve to never falter or fall.

The bright ray of the morning sun
hit her face so hard she covered her eyes and exclaimed “my, what a dream so real!”
The dream spoke of God’s Light,
His love and the River of Life,
a picture of what is to come,
a revelation of God’s delivering might and abundant promises day and night.

Now strengthened,
newly enlightened,
no more doubtful,
newly hopeful,
she knew that she could cope
with every trial whatever the scope,
for her heart was now full of hope,
because of Him who said

“I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass;
I have purposed it, I will also do it.(1)”

(Scriptural references:John 8:12, 7:38-39, Biblical quote Isaiah 46:11 KJV)

Appointed Time of Recompense

This prophetic poem is a Word of
encouragement to those who have given up on the world, suffer difficulties but still keep on keeping on in faith and for His sake. He is the God who not only hears and sees, but He also takes note and recompenses and blesses:

✝Prophetic Poem:
Appointed time of Recompense

Father knows you ended
the evil worldly game to
carry your cross in shame
to live your life for His fame.
He sees how you
refrain from giving up
under the strain of
a life of struggles and pain
and how you choose to sing
“By my God I am
always joyful,
full of gratitude,
Oh forever thankful”.

He hears your
shouts of joy,
sonnets of gratitude,
songs of thanksgiving.

Your voice of praise rises to the
skies until saturated heavenly
clouds can no more hold your
treasures reserved in storehouse
preserves, until there is a breaking
forth of abundant blessings,
mighty outpourings with
no end in sight.

Hurricanes of blessings,
Storms of rewards.
Receive!
for the time of restoration
and recompense is now.
Receive!

Do not hold back
for the time is now,
raise your hands
for the LORD says
Receive!
