THE YEAR 2017 - THE CHALLENGE OF  WALKING WITH GOD

 

“ If ye abide in me, and my words abide, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”  (John.15:7)

 

Greetings to you all brothers and sisters across the world  in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!

 

Right throughout the year 2016, the Lord has been ministering to Covenant Faith Fellowship in Colombo Sri Lanka through me with the wonderful revelations of the deep secrets of His Holy Word. This is in order to prepare us all for the turn of new events and situations that will pose trail of uncertainties to every single country, community and the social fabric in this world. No wonder Apostle Paul writing of our day said “ For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with a child; and they shall not escape”                 (1 Thessalonions.5:3) 

 

The Europe, USA and many of the countries in the Developed world have been safe havens for ages for many people across the world to migrate are now no longer can be classified that way. Diverse turning points have triggered the trail of unprecedented UNCERTAINITIES  for year 2017 ahead of us. Despite many minds of the current political leadership of the all powerful countries coming together, no one can see any sustainable solutions leave along near future but not even in the far distance future.

 

It is in kind of a setting, God has very preciously preserved His Church, the Bride of Christ. It is only the Children of the Living God that have the Peace that passeth all understanding.  But the year 2017 will be a challenging year even for the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ too.  It is all to do with our ‘Walk with the Lord’.  As in the Bible book of (Amos.3:3)   “Can two Walk together except they agreed?”  This is the reason Jesus articulated “ If You Abide in Me”, the desire, determination and the decision of bride of the Christ to A UNION OF ONENESS WITH HIM. That Oneness will be showcased in the bride as the WORD is profoundly expressed in her, as Jesus complete articulation stating, “ My Words Abide in You, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John.14:7)

 

Lord Jesus Christ who is the Bridegroom of the of the church,“Word was  made Flesh , and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, THE GLORY OF THE FATHER.” (John.1:14) We who are the designated Bride of Christ who are in the flesh , Saved by Grace , Redeemed by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ needed to be changed by the Quickening By the Holy Spirit  to Transform and Convert our Flesh to express the Glory of the WORD OF GOD. Its time, that  every single member of the genuine and true church of the Lord Jesus Christ recognize this process and subject themselves to ensure the fabric of the their whole being, the Body ,Soul and the Spirit individually and totally reflect the Glory of the Word which is the Glory of the Father.

Look Up, Lift Up Your Heads

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ! Greetings to you all in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the year 2016 !!
 

Years come years go, in a rapidly changing world in all frontiers , social , economical and technological , the modern man has become more a slave than a

free man. In the cycle of life when continue in the daily routine of life , today’s man merely goes through mode of the survival and not thriving in life. This applies to

rich and poor or big or small.
 

Issues , challenges and difficult tasks keeps the all the world greatly focus always looking around , looking out and looking for solutions at every turn. It is for era

like this we are living in , our Lord Jesus Christ very prophetically pronounced “ When these things begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEADS”

( Luke.21:28)
 

Lord impressed on me to reveal, the year 2016 will bring more challenges to the world in managing its affairs in the social , economical and environmental issues

and man will be more engage and interact with each other more vigorously to endup with solutions barely sufficient to resolve .

People in the world will be more unhappy , dissatisfied and distressful . It would only a small group of people who called by His name and redeemed by the blood of

the Lord Jesus Christ will have the ability to Look Up, and Lift their Heads. This ismainly because their total reliance on the on His calling , total dependency of His

Grace and leading of His Holy Spirit. It is only when you can see the big picture you can look up , and it is only when you are enlighten by His Word you can lift up your

heads.
 

When you look up you can see the possibilities that lies in the hand of the Mighty God who is also your redeemer and the Heavenly Father. It is then only you have

ability to lift up your heads and become more than conqueror in Christ Jesus. When you lift up your heads you will have all the host of heaven behind you for you to

progress enjoying the Abundant Life.

2015 Year of the Wise

 

Greetings to You in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!
 

The world has reach 14 years after completing 2000 years since birth of the sacrificial mission of the Lord Jesus Christ. Despite the many milestones reached in the area of science and technology the world has not becoming better place to live in. Politically , Economically and Environmentally the world we live in has become more unstable , unsuitable , unsustainable making this worse the global leaders are become mere talk show specialists with the rapid increase of meetings, summits , forums and conference across globally all the time but hardly any note worthy contribution done to transform the global economy and planet we live in to benefit every human being to experience impactful transformation in their lives.
 

The words of the Lord Jesus Christ recorded by Luke says “ For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of abundance of the heart mouth speaketh .” (Luke.6:43-45) The current set of the global leaders are like as Jesus have said are like Evil men out of their evil treasure brining in evil acts that brings continuous suffering ,hardships and tribulations to their people and the world at large.
 

The CHURCH also considered in the Bible as the BRIDE OF CHRIST is the only group of people that are on the planet earth endowed with wisdom that can come from God Almighty. It is by the Spirit of God the true and genuine church will have the privilege of being filled with the Divine Wisdom. The world by the worldly wisdom despite many good innovation to the world has not ushered in transformation to the society and to the planet but instead conditioned it with turbulences , chaos , crisis and collapses in the political, economical and environmental dimensions.
 

It is in the light of this, God has inspired me to named the year 2015 as the ‘2015 AS THE YEAR OF WISE’ and share the message for the year to prepare the Bride of christ the true and genuine CHURCH for unfolding events of the year 2015! I would like to share the portion of the scripture from the Bible God has placed before me.


PROVERBS.30
30:24. There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceedingly wise.
30:25. The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
30:26. The conies are but feeble folk, yet make they their housesit the rocks; .
30:27. The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
30:28. The Spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’s palace.
 

The Genuine Church in the end time is not measured by large numbers or congregations nor by very organise religious entities even though they bear the name Christian. But more very insignificant highly committed to the Lord and His Word and few in numbers well- knit organisms under leadership of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ as the Head, not Pope, Cardinal , Bishop, or Senior Pastor. Therefore this message is for this little folks spread across the world as Bible call them THE WISE who will be like the above four little species will need to demonstrate acting like then in the year 2015.
 

The uniqueness of ants though they are most insignificant is that they understand the timing perfectly well. The Wisdom they have been endowed with is enable them do the right thing at the right time, this is critical challenge many will face in the year 2015 but only the Bride of Christ who is considers as the Children of the light would understand the times and seasons perfectly well and do the right thing at the right time in the right way and be at the right place as mentioned by Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians.5:1-5.
 

The advantage the conies have is not in their size because they are one of smallest animals but the ability to make the rocks their aboding place which bigger and stronger than them . The rock always represent the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus told Peter “ The flesh and blood has not reveal this Peter , Upon this (Rock ) Revelation I will build my Church” when to said to him ‘ You are Christ the Son of the living God’. Its not just reading the Bible every day understanding every mystery from Genesis to book of Revelation that will bring transformation to the to Bride of Christ to conform to stature and measure and the image and likeness of Christ. As per Revelation 10:7. the written mystery in the Bible need to be understood by the bride of Christ before His coming and for this she given the Holy Spirit to lead her to all the truth.
 

The identity locust has is not individual but as a collective group they move and fly creating huge impact wherever they move. Unlike any other insect the locust do not have a leader but their togetherness and the union is what make them a band. While most of the organised Christian religion has king or leader like, Pope, Cardinal , Bishop and Senior Pastor etc, true and genuine Church will depend on the leading of the Holy Spirit, will always acknowled Lord Jesus Christ as the Head. As Jesus ha prayed (John.17:11) there is a union of oneness between the Church and the Lord.
 

Finaly the Spider should be credited for exploiting its full potential to achive something imposible . That is Spider is an insect which do not have wings to fly but but always seen in the high plces. The Spider has a inbuilt ability to produce slik tread through which he can create web and lift himself up and stay in the web where he catches his pray. He need to prooduce adecuate slike to create a web and lift him self and stay there. Jesus said in John.6:53-54. “ Verily verily I say unto you, Except ye eat the flwsh of the Son of man , and drink his blood, ye have nolife in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up the last day” As the church is waiting for the coming of the Lord and lift her into the realm of heavenly places. Jesus also said the that I speake they are Spirit and they are life. When the true Church the Bride of Christ received the word as into their heart as per parable of the sower in Matthew.13 , they need to produce the fruit. As Jesus came as Word made flesh dwelt among us, if the bride has to be in union with Bride Groom she who is in the flesh has transform into Word Bride. This is what Spider does, from the abdoment close his heart it produce the slik that lift him up to the web.


The prophet Daniel refering to our Age, Day and Time says “ Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried, but thewicked shall do wickedly: and noneof the wicked shall understand; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND. (Daniel.12:10) And Daniel also says “ And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall wake , some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. AND THEY THAT BE WISE SHALL SHINE AS THE BRIGTNESS OF THE FIRMAMENT”

COVENANT FAITH FELLOWSHIP

 

 2014 Year of the Wise

 

Welcome to Covenant Faith Fellowship , may I take this opportunity to bring greetings to you all in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!
 

The year 2014 will bring multiple challenges to individuals , communities , peoples and nations across the world, the challenges will be in the all areas such as physical , mental , spiritual , economical , and political.

While we will witness rapid increase of uncertainties in every frontier in the world , confidence in the established institutions to deliver more socially viable solutions will see an erosion as the drivers of such institutions become greedy and more ego centric.

In the backdrop this emerging state of affaires , God gave this precious message for me to prepare to as well as share with God chosen seed across the world to assists them to-overcome these challengers .

There is one beautiful scripture I want to share, which is found in the book of Proverbs, in the Bible.

"There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an Eagle in the air; way of a Serpent upon a rock ; the way of a Ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a Man with a maid" (Proverbs.30:18-19)

An Eagle is one of the most unique creatures that God has ever created, and this wonderful bird most often represented as symbolic character and the nature desired by God in His chosen children. An Eagle in compared to the other birds uniquely stands out in many areas. An Eagle can fly up to 10000 feet and as it fly to that level it work on huge circle of flight path, which it keeps on expanding while flying hours in the air. An eagle has the most sharpest eyes any animal , bird or human being has, from the heights of 10000 feet it can see even the smallest object. While taking its flight path for hours eagle see many of his potential preys which it should go after. While circulating in its flight path he evaluate merits and the demerits of each of its options and opportunity, once he identify the target , being the one of the best mathematician , decide on the angle to reach its prey, whether it 30, 60 or 90 degrees, having strengthen its legs and claws and in fact also sharpening its beak too , moves with speed to capture its prey.

God wants us , in this year to be like the eagles, like an eagle strengthening its wings and flys to the heights of 10000 feet , we need to ensure we our dwelling is in the secret place of the most High (Psalm.91:1) that's where we can see the big picture clearly and sharply , will see many options and opportunities and to evaluate each on its merits and demerits and see the obstacles and barriers in going for them, and with the insightful ness of the Holy Spirit God has given to us to take the calculated decision to move fast toward reaching and capturing our target.

Secondly , scripture says about the Serpent on the rock. Why would a serpent come to the rock? The serpents generally comes upon to the rocks for two reasons , one is rest on the open sunlight, and when on the rock serpent looks like a part of the rock , as most often rock and serpent's color looks the same , thereby serpent can disguise its self to show he is indeed part of the rock, to capture its prey the various insects , rats , rabbits that come to the rock a unaware is the other reason why serpent come to the rock.

What God is telling us is as Bible identifies rock to represent the church, and do you know that , satan represented in serpent does not rest in any where sinners gather but in the church where saints of God are gathers to make them its prey. It is only through the God given Holy Spirit that we can discern and identify serpent from the rock. There are many serpents , in homes , churches , in offices etc., remember we are in the year of serpent according to Chinese calendar. The Bible admonishes us in the last days not to get deceived and fall prey to cunning devices of satan.

Third wonderful thing the scripture is talking is the way of the ship in the middle of the sea. Today we have very modern , highly advanced mechanized ships that can big as you can imagine, with many features that are technology based. But in those ancient days we had sailing ships, taking advanced of the wind , with equipping the ship with number of sails in different shapes and sizes.The skillful ness of the captain in absolutely essential to the steer the sailing ships to intended destinations. The skillful ness in understanding the wind that blows upon the ship on the middle of ocean , whether its the south wind, north wind, east wind or the west wind in order to adjust , move and manipulate the sails. One thing he needs to recognize is that he can not do any adjusting , moving or manipulating the wind which is indeed beyond his control. If he is not skillful , when the divers winds blow when the ship in the middle of sea, he can get shipwreck , or wrongly move sails can move the ship far away from the destination intended.

God wants us to recognized the fact we as his children always in the middle of many activities ,situations and circumstances in this world , and always divers winds are blowing all the time from different sides, whether its a political wind that come from ones who govern the world and countries, economic and commercial wind that that are driven by business magnets and commercial power houses, spiritual winds that blown across by commercially oriented religious leaders, we need to discern, and that can only come from the Skillfulness that comes to us through the HolySpirit, and also to move , and adjust , and manipulate the our sails , in taking right decision at the right time at the right way , from the right place, the leading and the guiding of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential to us who are God sons and daughters.


And finally the Proverbs.30:19 wondering the way of man with a maid. Or in other words, here what is talk about love between husband and wife. When man marries the woman whom he loves, always desired to be with her, so is the same with the woman's desire to be with the man. Essentially by marriage when woman takes the man' s name that demonstrate her ownership now changes from her family that owned her to that of her husband. So the husband becomes the rightful owner by marriage, and the husband's responsibility thereafter is to love her, to protect her, to provide for her , to empower her and give her contentment and fulfillment . Her obligation is to unconditionally submit and surrender to his design, desire, plan and ways.

The Bible , always symbolizes our relationship to God as of the bride and the bridegroom and of a husband and wife. As by marriage there is ownership change , our ownership rests on Lord who has redeemed us by his blood having paid the price of the marriage, and now it is our obligation totally to submit and surrender ourselves to his will, design, desire and ways and being one with him always. Once we fulfill this obligation, God our Lord take the full responsibility to empower us through his wonderful name, and give us protection, provide us with us blessings unimaginable , enrich us with contentment and fulfillment not found in any where but only in the living God, glorious and majestic creator The Lord God Almighty.

This is indeed divine formula my God has given to me, which I have now shared with you all, even if you go to Harvard business school you will not learn or gain this , it has to come from the very throne room of God and His heart , I believe challenges that we will face in days , weeks , months and years ahead can be over come by this divine formula .

God bless you all, as God is faithful , be faithful to Him!

THE YEAR 2017 - THE CHALLENGE OF  WALKING WITH GOD
