Learning to Live LIFE in Christ Jesus

'for God [who is the source of their prophesying] 
is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace and order. 
As [is the practice] in all the churches of the saints (God’s people), '

1 Corinthians 14:33 AMP

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

Hope your week was good.

An interesting journey this week 
It is always good to come across treasures 
That can be store in the heart 


Let us give thanks in all things 
My soul let us praise the Lord 
For His mercy is new every morning
And His favour is for life 

Weeping may endure for a night
But joy comes in the morning 
Oh how I love the Lord 
For He has set me free  

One of the many things that struck me is 
“We are the Church” - 
A light that can never be taken out 

A mountain may be removed 
The hills may shake 
But the loving kindness may not be removed from you 
Nor will my covenant of peace be shaken
Says the Lord who has compassion on you
Isaiah 54:10

Out of the compassion of God, I can study His word 
Out of the compassion of God, I have a job 
Favour is everywhere because of the compassion of God.

So as I continue my journey through 1 Corinthians 14: 

It is not only the Corinthian but growing up, I too used to think that having spiritual gifts makes you more spiritually. But it doesn’t 

God in His wisdom, gives the gift at the very start of your journey, or in the middle or the end. 

Before we get to the end of the journey, we should not be child-like in our thinking, but be infant in the matter of evil but also in our minds be mature. And trusting in the Lord our God.

Prophecy and speaking in tongues: 

‘Now, believers, if I come to you speaking in unknown tongues, how will I benefit you unless I also speak to you [clearly] either by revelation [revealing God’s mystery], or by knowledge [teaching about God], or by prophecy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people], or by instruction [teaching precepts that develop spiritual maturity]? ‘ (6 AMP)

Paul reveals why Prophecy and the other spiritual gifts  is essential to the lives of Corinth: 

  1. Revelation – revealing God’s mystery 
  2. Knowledge – teaching about God
  3. Prophecy – speaking a new message from God to the people and letting them in to the future 
  4. Instruction – teaching that develops spiritual maturity from the scriptures itself.

Eager for the spiritual gifts but in ways that will spiritually build the church up. 

This is counter cultural to our sense of knowing in the world. 

The kingdom of God is not built on one building block that stands alone 
but it is a series of building blocks to build up the spiritual house, 
holy and pleasing to the Lord with the cornerstone 
which the builders have rejected and now the chief cornerstone, 
elect, precious, and all that believes in Him will by no means be put to shame.

Our goal in the church body should always be mutual benefits at the church meetings. 
And if we are to speak in tongues then let there also be interpretation so the body is edified. 
If you speak in tongues, then you must Pray to God that gives you the tongue to also give you the interpretation. 

Tongues do not benefit the mind because it does not understand. 
But it does benefit the spirit as it gets closer to God. 

I tell you, the word of the Lord is a lamp that shows just enough for today. 

Yes, speaking in tongues is also good when you are alone. 
When you want to give thanks, pray to God, sing to God, Bless the Lord 
for the enemy does not understand or comprehend the words. 
It cannot be used as a weapon against you 
It purpose is speak to God alone. 

Tongues are good for the spirit as the word of God is good for the minds.

​​'For the Lord gives [skillful and godly] wisdom; 
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. ' 
Proverbs 2:6 AMP
TRULY God is good to us 
And with great confidence we know that all things 
Work together for those that love 
God 

But as for me, I have looked to the left and the right 
And almost fell into the trap of despair and almost stumbled.
My steps have nearly slipped.
For I have envied the proud when I saw them prosper
This too is all meaningless

The pains of death can be seen from afar 
Pride has become the necklace of vanity 
Violence covers like a long luxurious robe, and this too is also vanity 
The world is now covered with more than the heart desires 
The eyes is never satisfied 
The imagination of the mind runs wild with foolishness 

They run around wild and speak only evil 
They boast against the very Heavens 
Their words are nothing but despair and despair 
And the water of abundance are blindly drunk by them

They say where is God? 
Is there knowledge with the Most High?
Their ears are turned away from the truth
Listen, these are the ungodly
Who always prosper and are at ease in the world 

When I think of this, it is too great to understand 
It is painful to comprehend 
Until I came to the sanctuary of God 
Then I understood life and death and the path to destruction was real 
Surely, my God You have set out eternity and shown us the way 
The truth and the life so we will not perish.

Whom do I have but You, Yahweh
There is nothing on earth that I desire more than You
My heart and my body may fail
But my God is the strength of my heart and my redeemer

For those who are far from You will perish 
You have destroyed sin and death 
And those who are unfaithful and abandon You.

So it is good that I draw near to the Lord God
And I will declare all Your works
TRULY God is good to us 
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

'Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. 
Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. 
If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God. 
It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from him come knowledge and understanding. '

Proverbs 2:2,4-6 GNT

Today I switched the word Love in 1 Corinthians 13 to Jesus, the perfection of our faith. All glory and honour belongs to my God and Saviour.

What is life without love?

The main question is what is life without Jesus!

Hear this all people,
Give ear, all children of God
Both low and high 
Rich and poor:

Today we stand against all odds because 
Jesus never said life will be easy instead He stands with us
He has overcome it all and
He is our comforter and protector

Why will I fear the days of evil? 
When darkness seems to overtake 
I turn to my God and lean not on my own understanding
No, I will not fear. Those that trust in wealth and boast in their riches 
None can redeem the world from the darkness 
Nor can they give God a ransom for our souls
Because the redemption of our souls is costly 
And it already redeemed 

Jesus the redeemer of our soul
Jesus, He is patient and is kind;
Jesus does not envy 
Jesus did not see Himself as equal to God, and He was never puff up
Jesus never behaved rudely 
Jesus did not seek His own and was never provoked 
Jesus never thinks evil 
Jesus does not rejoice in iniquity instead He conquered it by giving us true freedom which is the truth
Jesus bears all things, 
Jesus believes all things and He hoped in all things
Jesus endures all things 
Jesus knew that today, you and I will follow Him and find Him

I give praise and glory to the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

'Now, to the one with enough power to prevent you from stumbling into sin 
and bring you faultless before his glorious presence to stand before him with 
ecstatic delight, to the only God our Saviour, through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
be endless glory and majesty, great power and authority—from before he created time, 
now, and throughout all the ages of eternity. Amen! 

Jude (Judah) 1:24-25 TPT
Amen, as we come to the end of the year.

Glory to the Lord and Saviour of our Lord Jesus Christ
Who has found us in the darkness
And bought light and given us power 
Power that lets us walk in darkness and 
prevents us from stumbling into sin

To Jesus Christ, be endless glory and majesty 
From Him was the word, the word that was before time 
He is outside of time and space 
He was at the beginning with God 
All things were made through Him

In Him alone we have life, and the life that is the light of man
Jesus Christ the God that dwells in the dark cloud with us
I will exalt His Name above all other names 
For in Christ Jesus alone, I stand fearless and joyful
For the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever

What was lost is now found 
What was in the darkness is now in the light 
Now therefore, our God
We thank You and praise Your glorious Name
Who are we to stand in Your presence 

For all things are from You
And Your own we have given to You
For we are like flowers before You
Our days are like shadow and without hope
O Lord, we surrender to You and let Your will be done
Thank you for stopping by
God bless you in your journey

'Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, 
My lips shall praise You. 
So will I bless You as long as I live; 
I will lift up my hands in Your name. '

Psalms 63:3-4 
National Maritime Museum
My soul magnifies the Lord my God 
And my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour 

For He came down to earth and we beheld His glory 
Glory of the One and only begotten Son of the Father 

Who has shown us the light 
The true light which gives light to every man coming to the world

From generations to generations
He has shown His mercy to all who fear Him

And we see His glory 
Glory that belongs to the One and only begotten Son 

The Son who is unique 
The only One of His Kind, full of grace and truth 

Glory to God in the highest 
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!
