A Christian’s Assurance in the Face of Crisis Featured

Galatians 1:3-4 KJV
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

2 Samuel 24:25 NKJV
And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.

Christ Jesus has been offered on behalf of the Body of Christ. He has offered Himself without spot to God to cleanse us from our sins which delivers us from this present evil world. Christ’s death was the full payment for all our sins. This was the propitiation for our sins. God looks upon us in mercy and chooses to watch over us and protect us as His own. See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The Blood of Jesus Christ has established a New Covenant based upon better promises. The New Covenant is far better than the Old Testament. If God protected those in the ancient times under the Old Covenant, then most assuredly He will see to it that you are safe. See Matthew 11:11; Hebrews 7:22; 8:6.

Remember that God the Father loves you the way He loves Jesus. Think about it. God would willingly and joyfully do for you whatever He would have done for Jesus if He was here on earth. Why? Because as He is so are we in this world. You are the Body of Christ. See John 17:23; 1 John 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:15-17; Colossians 1:24.

You are not an ordinary person. See 1 Peter 2:9; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3. You have a privileged place in God. Get it straight: You are special to God. He considers you a special envoy and an ambassador of the kingdom of God. You are entitled to the protection of angels. See 2 Corinthians 5:20.

Psalms 91:11-13 NKJV
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Psalms 34:7 NKJV
The angel of the LORD encampeth
round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

God has assigned His angels to protect you and to preserve in these times. Fret not, God is faithful, He won’t let you down. He preserved Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He plagued Pharaoh and his family because of Abraham and Sarah. He closed the wombs of everyone in Abimelech’s because of them too. You are the seed of Abraham. So you can be rest assured that God will preserve you and deal with all those who come against you. Selah

Let the following words comfort your heart:

Isaiah 41:10-13 KJV
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee:
they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Rest in the Lord. He will protect you, preserve you and cover you at all times from the evils of these last days. Not one of your hairs will perish. Trust God! He has been doing this for a very long time. Selah

Consider This: The Paradox of God: When Least Expected

Consider This:
The Paradox of God: When Least Expected

1 Corinthians 2:6-8 NKJV
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

God is a thousand thousand times amazingly smart and astonishingly brilliant than we could ever know. When we study the history of God’s dealings with men we will notice that every time it seems that man has come to the end of Himself, that’s when God steps in.

2 Corinthians 4:6 NKJV
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 4:16 NKJV
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

You will also notice that in the darkest and blackest of times, God shines His light of Hope through the darkness. For instance, When the children of Israel were under Roman occupation and the reign of Herod, they had no idea that it was the appropriate time that Messiah would be born. God always shows up when men least expect Him to. Think about that for a moment. That’s why His coming will be like a thief in the night.

When Pharaoh was killing the male seed of Israel, no one would have thought that it was the time that their deliverer would be born. Interestingly, Moses was nurtured, raised and cultured in Pharaoh’s house. All that Moses learned was used for the furtherance of God’s plan and purpose for Israel. Think about it.

When Israel was under siege by the Philistines with Goliath as their leader and champion, no one would have thought that was when one of the greatest Kings of Israel would introduced to the world as an outstanding warrior. David emerged when Saul hid. In these times, men and women after God’s heart will be launched to the forefront. Selah

When Jesus was been tortured before He was nailed to the cross at the crucifixion, it seemed it was all over for this new faith and the way of life that He purported. When He gave up the ghost and was buried, it seemed as if it was forever closed that Christianity was a thing of the past, but they did not know about the resurrection. After that dark moment in history came the greatest story of victory ever told: Victory over death.

A man once gloated about the end of Christianity. He boasted that Christianity would be a thing of the past, amazingly, it was from his house that the first printed Bible was produced. It is inconceivable to think that God can be defeated. God always wins. The Bible always outlives its critics. Christianity always outlasts its prosecutors.

This present challenge will not end Christianity. It will birth a new phase of God’s work in the earth. God will bring a new thing out of this. He will raise a new breed of people, a remnant totally sold out to the furtherance of the kingdom of God with no personal or private agenda. He will make the devil pay. Yes He will! People are desperately searching for truth. Are you aware that more people are reading the Bible these days more than ever. Are you aware that souls are been saved online? Keep your eyes open. Be alert, in the midst of this, God is up to something. Selah

How To Use Your Authority

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you from God the Father and from Jesus Christ our Lord in whose Name we have been given authority over devils.

Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have an unqualified access the the Father and all the bounties of heaven. See Ephesians 1:3; Philippians 4:19.
Today I want us to look at the subject of authority. Authority in its simplest terms is “Delegated Power.” Authority is the legal right to use power. It is the right to command and enforce obedience. Authority is right, mastery, jurisdiction, capacity etc. See Luke 10:17-19.
Until a believer understands his or her authority in Christ he or she will not be able walk in victory and enjoy the quality of life that God has ordained for him or her.


We live in a wicked world. See 1 John 5:19; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 2:18; 1 Corinthians 16:9. There are spiritual forces that seek to hinder your progress, delay your dreams and destroy you and yours. See John 10:10a. But God has an answer to all of these.
Firstly, we need to know that the blood of Jesus Christ and His vicarious death on the cross did not only fix the sin problem.
Hebrews 2:14-15 KJVForasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
The word destroy in this context means the following:

The Believer has tremendous Authority in Christ
  1. To render entirely idle or useless
  2. Abolish
  3. To do away
  4. To make of none effect
  5. To bring to nought
  6. Inoperative
  7. Inactivate
  8. To cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency
  9. To deprive of force, influence or power

This means that when Jesus died on the cross, He incapacitated the enemy. By virtue of Christ’s death on the cross, all of satan’s power over us is broken. The blood of Christ delegitimizes satan’s authority over us. His authority over us was due to the sin question. The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death.” This means the payment for sin is death. The death of Jesus Christ was the FULL payment for all our sins. See Hebrews 9:14-17; 9:26-28;10:5-13; Romans 4:25; 1 John 3:8; Colossians 2:13-15 ESV.


By reason of Christ’s death we are free people. Satan’s hold or control over us has become illegitimate. The price has been paid. We have been bought with a price. No matter the covenant that our ancestors had with satan or devils, by reason of the New Birth and the efficacy of the blood we are free people. The blood of Jesus has broken our ties with such allegiances. When we say the sinner’s prayer or accept Christ as our Lord and personal savior, we have broken any ties or link with those devils. We have pledged our allegiance to a new King: Jesus is His Name. He is our Lord.
Ignorance is the devil’s greatest weapon against the Church. He will bring up issues of your past against you in order to keep you condemned and under the whiplash of shame, guilt and condemnation. You need to know that God forgives completely and thoroughly. See Hebrews 8:12; 10:17; 1 John 1:9; 5:17.


This is the reason why the Lord sent us to preach repentance and remission of sins. See Luke 24:46; Acts 5:31; 13:38-39; John 3:16-17. When people become aware of the fact that Christ’s death makes satan’s hold over them illegal, they will resist and rebel against his oppressive rule over them. They will become bold to command and demand for their freedom and their liberties from all kinds of spiritual oppression. The blood of Jesus has set you free. The blood has cleansed you. Take a bold stance against the enemy in the authority of Jesus Christ’s Name. Demand your freedom. Christ has redeemed you from the curse. See Galatians 3:13-14; Ephesians 1:3-4.
Isaiah 49:24-25 KJVShall the prey be taken from the mighty,or the lawful captive delivered?But thus saith the Lord,Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered:for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,and I will save thy children.
To be continued….
