Power to fulfill destiny – Part 2
May I take this opportunity to say a big Compliment of the season to everyone out there! JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. This statement is not just a hype, but it also brings the fact to bear that Jesus is truly the reason for this celebration. When men turned their back on God by the act of disobedience and the foolishness of self-independence, they died and lost their residence in the Garden of Eden (presence of God), a place where a man was placed after his creation to be instructed and empowered by God into the fulfilment of their destinies.
God placed man in Eden by His infinite wisdom to have everything he will ever need in life to fulfil his God-given purpose. But rather, man chose to walk away, thereby breaking the divine relationship and building a wall of separation between himself and his Creator, a situation where it became impossible to fulfil destiny. A hopeless condition, indeed. Then Christ came that we may have our life back. This life is the spirit of God in man, “ZOE” the power of God that fulfils destiny (Jn 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
He began by breaking down the wall of separation and a reunited man with his Creator. John 14:6 … Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
After everything failed to reunite man back to God, it became clear that the blood of Jesus is the only required sacrifice that could melt the wall of separation and bring man back to the hill of God, a holy place which no man qualifies to enter by himself (Psalm 24:3).
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place?… Jesus Christ is the only answer to this heavenly question by him alone can we pass through the barriers and access the power of God our creator (Eph 2:14) For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; This gives man a clear opportunity to come back to the presence of God his creator to be guided into the fulfilment of his Destiny. (Proverbs 20:24) Taken this chance to start a new relationship with God avail you the grace to hear him, because until a man hears the voice of God he can’t be led of him (Jn 10:27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:)
The Lord becomes a Shepherd only to a man that takes instructions from Him to obey them, in order to do His Will; otherwise, he will be led astray. But when a man is led by God, the prosperity of his soul and body is certain.
(Psalm 23.1- 3 the Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters and restores my soul).
May I say here that your failure or success in life is totally in your hands, as it is now a matter of choice: you either choose the free sacrifice of Jesus and leave or reject it and continue to die in sickness failure and poverty. Accepting Jesus is not just about going to church or claiming to be a Christian. Rather, it is about having a relationship with Him, whereby you may be able to understand Him and His Will for you at every point in your lifetime. Though sin separated man from God and without blood, there is no way a man can be reconciled. But now that the blood has been provided, it is up to you to accept this gift of a free sacrifice. (Hebrew 9: 7; 22)
It is impossible for the natural man to succeed without supernatural interference and spiritual support. The level of a man’s knowledge in the spiritual determines the level of his success. Some may argue that there are unbelievers who are successful, but the truth is that there are no unbelievers who have the appearance of success. It’s either they believe in the Spirit of light, which is of God or they believe in the spirit of darkness which is of the devil. God and the Devil are both spirits, and they can only be accessed, invoked and involved in our personal life by our involvement in spiritual activities that tend to worship them and do their will. While doing God’s Will provokes you to do good, on the contrary, the will of Satan provokes you to do evil and be comfortable with it. However, both demand loyalty and obedience to their laws. While the laws of God are not burdensome because the sacrifice of the life of Jesus has relieved and cleared us from the ordinances against us to Obey (Col. 2: 14) making it much easier to access the Spirit of God, Who is able to make us succeed and fulfil our destiny to the glory of God, just by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour.
