Legalism

Legalism is a very powerful tool the devil has been using to put people under condemnation, and condemnation is the root of most sin especially cycle sins. Legalism can be self or people imposed . legalism puts people in bondage to be self righteous and when they fail(which is usually the case) people feel unworthy. There’s a very common type in christian circles this set of legalism that people adhere to in order to try to earn salvation, grow spiritually, or judge the outward appearance of others.

A sampling of these include praying long hours, fasting or reading prescribed daily portion of the bible. Of course these are all great practices, but they shouldn’t be done with the intent of earning some form of spiritual superiority. Legalism could manifest in believing we have greater access to God because we serve diligently in ministry or the church. Unfortunately, people begin to think they are christians and God loves them because of their works, any failure will lead in frustration and condemnation to an extent failing to pray.

It reaches a point where we begin to believe our prayers are heard quickly because we haven’t committed any significant sin lately and we are praying for long hours and fast often. The Unspoken mindset is that we can fill our spiritual bank accounts with good behaviour, deeds or works . With legalism love is not the motivation but attempting to earn God’s favor, which we already have in Christ finished work.This type of legalism focuses on status, pride or self gratification that accompanies regulations set by oneself or others. It’s makes one not depend on God’s ability as it turns focus on ourselves. It robs us of the Grace of God.

This focus on our strength makes us become selfish righteous and when on is self righteous they fall from Grace. Every time a person who is in such a position messes up they feel unwanted, condemned and useless. Eventually, they begin to move in sin cycles.Actually anyone trying to earn salvation or grow in Christ through legalistic teachings or beliefs doesn’t possess true joy they live in a small world where those who don’t think exactly like them are filtered out and believe they are lost. When one lives a legalistic life they look down on people struggling and even think some people can’t be saved. They look down on people struggling with addictions, despite most have their skeletons too just that they are hidden in their closets. Some even look down on their fellow christians.

BUT, it’s not suppose to be this way! You are worthy, loved, called,forgiven, Righteous not because of what you have done, what you will do or what you are doing, but because of Christ finished work on the cross of calvary. When we deeply understand and believe this even when we mess up we won’t run away from God but run to him because we know his love for us doesn’t depend on us but the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. And even as we fast, pray for long hours and study the bible we won’t do it to earn anything from God but because we love him because he first loved us!

Gal.3.1 – You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
Gal.3.2 – I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?
Gal.3.3 – Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?
Gal.3.4 – Have you suffered so much for nothing–if it really was for nothing?
Gal.3.5 – Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?


Thank you very much for reading. I have been reading a book Hod or Good by John Bevere, a chapter deeply enlightened me about this and I thought I should share my thoughts too.

2020VISION

The Year of Acceleration, Time & Space !

  • ACCELERATION

    Isa.66.7 – “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son.
    Isa.66.8 – Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children

Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. To obtain very high acceleration, high speed must be attained in the shortest possible time and where acceleration is present constant speed is absent. The normal way of birth is, during birth labor pain must be experienced but Israel was birthed without pain. A natural law was suspended in the same way This year God is suspending natural and normal ways for us to experience maximum acceleration in a very short period and without pain we shall give birth as we accelerate.There times when God allows the supernatural to interven in the natural to fulfil his agenda. It’s not natural or normal to walk on water but Jesus suspended the laws of Gravity and walked on water, this year God is suspending many laws for us to accelerate and do big things in a short period of time. What was suppose to be done in months will be done in days.

In the year of Acceleration we are moving at the speed of light and everyday our speed increases because there’s no acceleration with constant or reducing speed!

  • TIME AND SPACE

    1Kgs.6.5 – Against the walls of the main hall and inner sanctuary he built a structure around the building, in which there were side rooms.
    1Kgs.6.6 – The lowest floor was five cubits wide, the middle floor six cubits and the third floor seven. He made offset ledges around the outside of the temple so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls.
    1Kgs.6.7 – In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built.
    1Kgs.6.8 – The entrance to the lowest floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third.

God is going to manipulate time and space in your favor to bring you higher, faster as you trust Him by taking one step at a time. The secret of the winding staircase will take you higher into the wider rooms of provision, rest and glory.

The first miracle Jesus performed in John 2:5-11 he showed that he is the God of time! It takes many years to make wine and good wine for that matter, but Jesus made good wine in seconds. He manipulated time and made wine in a short period. This will be our story this year God is going to reverse, accelerate and suspend time for us to recieve favor and become higher. When he manipulates time the best is still going to come out.

The second Miracle Jesus did he showed that he is God of space in John 4: 50-54 He suspended the laws of space by healing someone who was miles and miles away from him. This year space is not a barrier our God is the God of space. He is suspending the laws of space for us to obtain favor and become higher. From the theme verse The winding staircase represents the passage of time and the increasing floors and breadth represents space. God is going to do the miraculous this year by Manipulating time and Space.

Multiplication And Latter Rain!

The first Midnight of this year Bishop at church declared 2019 as the year of Multiplication and on Vision Sunday Joseph Prince declared this year the year of latter rains. The whole latter rain concept was new to me but after the vision Sunday sermon it became clear and I knew 2019, will be greater in the latter days. I started to think most of the Multiplication will be latter, because the theme at church and New creation church always connect in my life. I take the themes very personal.

In the sermon Joseph Prince said ” In Egypt the Israelites used effort to water their crops but in the promised land they depended on God’s Rain. In Egypt they had to look at their works in Canaan they had to look at God and his finished work , they ultimately depended on God to take care of their land. 2019 we must look upto God and depend in his finished work. While the world looks at their strength we must fully depend on God.” I am here to testify this year the latter rain out poured.

He also emphasised that we must often take holy Communion this year, in the days of latter rain wine and bread was produced, we must trust God for healing, great IQs, Education progress and family restoration. I took this personal I took holy Communion in school this year like no man’s business, before writing every test, before the beginning of a new term, before writing my sessional exams and before ministering anywhere. And I frequently asked God to make the latter rains fall on me.

This year if there’s a course that gave me a hard time was Chemistry, I had enough took communion before writing the paper and because the Multiplication was latter I got my first A+ in Chemistry this year at my final Exams. I picked the word freedom because I wanted healing in a certain part of my life because the Multiplication was latter I got my freedom this month. Today is the last day of 2019 and I’m here to testify that God has kept the words he gave to me at the beginning of the year, MULTIPLICATION AND LATTER RAINS!!! Looking forward to 2020!

Word Of The Year

For three years now I have been participating in an annual tradition at Elevation Church, where before the end of the year Pastor Steven Furtick asks us to pick a word that we want to describe our next year. For 2018 I picked “BEST ” because I wanted for the best outcome in a good number of things that year and I got the best outcome. 2019 I picked “FREEDOM” This one was really challenging because most of the year upto the last month I thought the freedom won’t come, but because this is the year of latter rain I assume it was a latter freedom .I picked the word freedom because in 2018 there was a certain habit that kept me hostage I can say it was kind of my dirt little secret which I never shared with anyone. I found it hard to share it with anyone because I believed people will be disappointed in me. When Pastor Steven Furtick asked us to pick the word I prayed that God gives me freedom from this habit, personally I had enough of it and I really wanted to see myself set free.2019 came I was hopeful the freedom will come, but come on, “man makes his plans and God orders his steps.” I personally thought the freedom will come in the early days of the year, but this wasn’t the case. God made me go through a process that helped me learn a lot apart from my freedom. I came to meet people who are struggling from the exact thing and God used me to give them hope and show them the road to their freedom designed in grace while I’m in the same situation. God taught me to open up about my struggles and one of the people I opened upto was my role model Jon Jorgenson who was so kind to me throughout.

At the beginning of the year On vision Sunday Pastor Joseph Prince declared this year as the year of latter rain ( and trust me most of my prayers have been latter, this is a testimony for another day.)I assume perhaps this is the reason my freedom was a latter freedom. I recently got my freedom actually and I’m really grateful for the process that God allowed me to go through this year. He has really being faithful to me and for that I’m forever grateful.

This year again Pastor Steven Furtick preached a sermon “I am the One” and he asked each one of us to pick a word that we want to describe our 2020, I have picked my word in faith and I want you to do the same. Kindly watch the sermon to get this all tradition in content and then participate. You can find the link to the sermon here. Pick the word in faith and watch how your 2020 unfolds.
