YOUR DESTINY AND THE SECRET

Bible In One Year-Day 202 (Sunday, July 21, 2013)

Commentary: Proverbs25-27. What a way to learn to keep secrets and live a life of moderation.

Proverbs 25:3 “The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.

When you see a king without a place of secrecy inside of him, you have seen a naked king due to fall. This proverb came out of the mouth of King Solomon, but he was found showing a stranger all he had, even the secret of his rooms. To everyone God has a covenant with there is a secret he has to keep to himself. The covenant is in that secret and it must be within him. When he exposes it, he is finished. Samson had the secret of his greatness in his heart and the symbol was the hair, but unfortunately, he revealed it to Delilah; that changed his status. The glory of a king without a place within him to keep secret can easily be removed by the enemy. Joseph could not keep secret in the first place and that landed him in an unpleasant place. If we are not wise in walking with God, two things could happen; either the appointment is terminated or God sends the person to the school of wisdom and humility; this school is intense. There is no double promotion there; however, every subject and course must be taken, no matter how brilliant one is. What you are going through now could be as a result of loosing or exposing a secret to the enemy like Joseph. You have to endure through the training until God says you have graduated and your seat of fulfillment shall be handed over to you by a person that matters. The goal is for one to be disciplined and moderate in all dealings. As sweet as honey is, too much of it will result in discomfort; i.e. to say moderation is part of kingdom walk.

Proverbs 25:16 “Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.

Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs28-31. Keep the fire burning and alive.

THE GOOD NAME

Bible In One Year-Day 201 (Saturday, July 20, 2013)

Commentary: Proverbs22-24. The commentary in these chapters centers on a good name.

Proverbs 22:1 “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

The character a man exhibits makes the name good or bad. In the Bible, we could see many names with wonderful meanings but the character bearing the names is very bad which made people to renounce the name. When somebody’s attitude is admirable, people want to identify with such. They want to bear the name. Same thing goes for what they use. For instance, if such wears a particular type of cap, people call the cap by the name of that famous person. A times, they make such famous person to sign contracts of using the image of the person for adverts. Here the bible made us understand that good name is better than riches. When you start running after money, what is behind your mind goes beyond feeding yourself, but to buy good name in doing one thing or the other. In essence, we run after riches to buy good name. But the bible tells us that the good name is better than riches. To get a good name, you must fear God and run from evil. The fear of God makes you to be honest and want to serve humanity with the whole of your heart.

Proverbs 22:4 “By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

There are rules the renowned people of the past existed under, this is called the ancient landmark; such as humility, honesty, love, tolerance and the fear of God, we should not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:28 “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

Children are being corrected because of good name.

Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs25-27. Keep the fire burning and alive.

Proverbs 23:10-11 “Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless: For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee.

DEALING WITH LYING SPIRIT

Bible In One Year-Day 200 (Friday, July 19, 2013)

Commentary: Proverbs19-21. Lying tongue is deadly to the carrier and to those who are friends to it. King Ahab was a victim of lying tongues and he ended up in untimely death.

1 Kings 22:22 “And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

Every lying tongue is under the control of a lying spirit. Once that happens, it goes about to give false witnesses and speaking of lies.

Proverbs 20:19 “He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

Such tongues are involved in diverse weights and deceits. Only deliverance can solve the problem.

Proverbs 21:30-31 “There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.

Without deliverance, havoc is inevitable where lying tongue rules. To have a lying spirit does not stop one from becoming a pastor, bishop, etc. the prophets around king Ahab had this evil spirit. The book of Ezekiel made us to understand that lying spirit can be found among the people of God.

Ezekiel 13:9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.”

Lying spirit encourages rebellion against the Lord and disunity among brethren, i.e. separates friends. Any man of God that has this spirit could easily be manipulated by other evil spirits. Any Christian having this evil spirit will definitely live in deceit. Satan adopts Christians with this evil spirit; that is the reason for calling him the father of liars. Once a person is possessed with this spirit, such automatically becomes an adopted child of Satan. To overcome this yoke, you need to subject yourself to deliverance and ask God to give you a soft tongue, new heart and a new spirit. Isaiah received purging on his tongue and his ministry was totally transformed.

KJV-R (Webster) Isaiah 6:5-7 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.”

Isaiah received the specific ministry only after his tongue was purged; God’s word must remain pure and must be delivered as it is; no addition or subtraction. God’s word is what He has to say and not what you want to hear. The Bible perfectly described the state of our tongue and what to do about it in James3.

Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs22-24. Keep the fire burning and alive.

THE WISE CHOICE

Bible In One Year-Day 199 (Thursday, July 18, 2013)

Commentary: Proverbs16-18. When you put wisdom and asset side by side, it is better to choose wisdom and putting understanding side by side money, choose understanding. This is the message of Proverbs16:16.

Proverbs 16:16 “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

These two things, wisdom and understanding, are the treasures that moth cannot eat. Whoever has them becomes treasure that the rich seeks after. The man with understanding has the key to the treasure of darkness and able to open the secret places.

Isaiah 45:3 “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

There is something we ought to know; people’s need is not entertainment or eloquence of speech but life. When they see somebody who gives life, i.e. food for the spirit, they go there. The person that has the life people want is that person who has understanding.

Proverbs 16:22 “Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.

Wisdom can make a servant to become a master over the children of his master and even share of the inheritance, Prov17:2. A man of understanding avoids strife, he has a calm spirit and his gift brings him before great men.

Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

Joseph’s gift broke open the prison gate and landed him before Pharaoh. It is wisdom and understanding that can take a man to the seat of destiny fulfillment. On your tongue is life and on the same tongue is death, both are good and profitable to the soul. Understanding the time and season of releasing these powers is known as wisdom.

Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs19-21. Keep the fire burning and alive.

AVOIDING TONGUE TROUBLE

Bible In One Year-Day 198 (Wednesday, July 17, 2013)

Commentary: Proverbs13-15. From our reading we could see that the ruin of a lot of people is the mouth. Many lives would have been preserved and fulfill destiny if not for the diarrhea of the mouth. Parents, or even we, might have described our destinies to the enemy at one time or the other.

Proverbs 13:3 “He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

There was this unnamed man in 2Samuel1:1-16 whose mouth killed. He did not kill Saul but he claimed to have killed him thinking that would fetch him favor and honor. A lying mouth and untamed tongue are death unto the owner. When you see a wise man, he acts with knowledge unlike the foolish who acts before thinking.

Proverbs 13:16 “Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.

A rich man with untamed tongue is poor and a powerful man with unbridled tongue is naked. The Bible encourages us that if we do not see the lips of knowledge in somebody, regard such as a fool and you have to do away from such. Those you move with tell more of who you are.

Proverbs 14:7 “Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

One of the ways to notice a fool around is that he or she mocks at sin, i.e. he or she does not consider sin as harmful but that it is part of life; unlike the wise that fears and departs from evil.

Proverbs 14:16 “A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.

Seek wisdom and understanding for there is not any other path to life.

Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs16-18. Keep the fire burning and alive.

Proverbs 15:33 “The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
