Lift Jesus higher (lift Him) 2x lift Him high for the world to see, for He said if I be lifted high above, I will draw all men unto me. Jesus never fail, Jesus never fail, the man of world can fail you but Jesus never fail.

Thank You Father for the miracle of this day. Lord we bow to worship Your Holy Name. Blessed be Trinity, we adore You – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Blessed Redeemer, we Thank You for Your faithfulness, Your love and peace all through the month, we are grateful and we return with our mouth full of thanksgiving. Glory be to Your Name O! Lord.  Help us Lord as we sit at Your feet all through the week to learn at Your feet in Jesus Name.

Beloved, here come to last week in the month in our adorable month of gaining dominion through the patience that we see in the life of or Lord Jesus. The truth is that we are nothing aside Him and without His help in our lives we despair. Therefore I choose to lean on Him daily to draw the much needed strength from above to run the race set before us.

My prayer as I walk the path of eternity is “God help me to run as win the praise at the end.” May I receive from the Lord “the welcome into the kingdom which I have prepared for you” according to the Word of the Lord in Matt 25:24. I must not be disqualify at the end of my race. It will be too dangerous to be real because you have reach the finish line and no opportunity to repeat. I believe also that is your desire dear reader that you receive the crown and not rebuke.

Why am saying that on this first working week and the last of the week of our imbibing the Spirit of patience as it is in our Lord Jesus Christ?

Beloveth our topic of today have the answer- “there is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Apostle Paul help in analyzing this further, in 1 Corinthians 9:24, he said that our life is like a contest for a prize. He made us to understand that there is a prize that awaits us at the end of our race here on earth, he admonished us to ran in such a way to win the prize at the end of the finished line.

He further explain that those who engage in the physical athletic disciplines themselves to stay fit and be a master of their game. Now brethren, how much more is required of us if we must win the incorruptible crown which will be given unto us at the day of His appearing. He therefore urge us to bring our body under subjection having the full assurance that we will be rewarded. Lest we preach to other and become a cast way at the end. God forbid!

Why again must we run in such a way to obtain the prize?  Heb 12:1 have the answer. We have a great crowd of witnesses therefore we must lay aside every weight, and sin which doth so easily beset us, and run with patience the race that is set before us.

Beloveth, what are those ways that seemeth right before your eyes but they are contrary to the will of God concerning you? Are they against the commandments of God? Are they against the Christiana doctrines? Will they bear good witness to Your Lord and Master Jesus Christ of whom you represent?

Watch therefore lest you fall. Watch therefore you do not receive a rebuke other than a recommendation as promised us in matt 25:31-46.

In the Name of Jesus, none of us will be a cast way, let us therefore hold on to the skirt of our Master and go with Him everywhere He goes and anywhere He will leads us. Praise the Name of the Lord!

There is a way that seems right to a man,but in the end it is the way of death.—Proverbs 16:25

Things are not always what they seem. Proverbs warns that we can be deceived into believing we are going down the right path and yet be heading toward death, the opposite direction from God’s will. People do not naturally seek God or pursue righteousness (Rom. 3:10–18). Only as the Spirit awakens our hearts to the Person of Christ are we able to desire God’s will.

If we make decisions apart from the guidance of the Spirit of God, we will be like a ship trying to sail without a compass. We will do what makes the most sense, based on our own wisdom. But what looks attractive may actually lead to sin, ultimately destroying what is precious to us, for our most profound human thinking is mere foolishness to God (1 Cor. 1:18–20). Only God knows the way that leads to life, and He wants to lead us to walk in it (Matt. 7:13–14).

Don’t assume every opportunity that arises is from God. Satan will disguise himself as an “angel of light,” and his invitations will seem to be in your best interest (2 Cor. 11:14). Yet his way leads only to death (John 8:44). The word of God will be like a light to your path, guiding you in the ways of righteousness (Ps. 119:105).

It can be perilous to follow a path that seems right without first consulting the Holy Spirit for guidance (John 16:13). Take time to seek the Holy Spirit’s direction when you face decisions. He knows the full ramifications of your choices. The Holy Spirit will assist you to understand truth and to experience abundant life. Trust Him as He leads you.

So far how has it been with you this month? Have you been regular at the site? We appreciate for that. Did you abide with Him even as He instructed you to do? For me, this is a fulfilled month. As I am patiently waiting on the Lord, the Lord visited me and fulfilled is revelation about the ministry as shown me four years ago. The month of June is a great month in the life of this ministry. Little wonder why the Lord visited again in this month to confirm His word.

I really want to Thank God Who has been at our side all these years. What you receive every morning has nothing to do with me. He is the one behind all that is happening here, all I need to do is to yield myself so that He work through me (Phil 2:13). Am just a vessel, but my gratitude to God is that He found a wretch like me to be a vessel unto honour meet for the master use, prepared unto every good work. Lord I bow before the Throne and worship You (2 Tim 2:21; 1 Thess 4:4).

This ministry by the grace of God will be great, though it seem as if it taking time but never mind the Lord is behind the stage putting everything in place. Helping His handmaid to be better quipped for the task ahead. Likewise I don’t know what and where God is instructing to hold on for a while, be patient because it is not yet time for you to be announced to world. Will you simply be obedient and listen to Him so that when the time is ripe you will bring forth. Praise the Lord.

Let go through our second message:

“Art thou become like unto us?” Isaiah 14:10

What must be the apostate professor’s doom when his naked soul appears before God? How will he bear that voice, “Depart, ye cursed; thou hast rejected me, and I reject thee; thou hast played the harlot, and departed from Me: I also have banished thee for ever from my presence, and will not have mercy upon thee.” What will be this wretch’s shame at the last great day when, before assembled multitudes, the apostate shall be unmasked?

See the profane, and sinners who never professed religion, lifting themselves up from their beds of fire to point at him. “There he is,” says one, “will he preach the gospel in hell?” “There he is,” says another, “he rebuked me for cursing, and was a hypocrite himself!” “Aha!” says another, “here comes a psalm-singing Methodist—one who was always at his meeting; he is the man who boasted of his being sure of everlasting life; and here he is!”

No greater eagerness will ever be seen among Satanic tormentors, than in that day when devils drag the hypocrite’s soul down to perdition. Bunyan pictures this with massive but awful grandeur of poetry when he speaks of the back-way to hell. Seven devils bound the wretch with nine cords, and dragged him from the road to heaven, in which he had professed to walk, and thrust him through the back-door into hell.

Mind that back-way to hell, professors! “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith.” Look well to your state; see whether you be in Christ or not. It is the easiest thing in the world to give a lenient verdict when oneself is to be tried; but O, be just and true here. Be just to all, but be rigorous to yourself.

Remember if it be not a rock on which you build, when the house shall fall, great will be the fall of it. O may the Lord give you sincerity, constancy, and firmness; and in no day, however evil, may you be led to turn aside.

Beloved, be humble enough to say ‘amen’ to the prayer above. The last day will be terrific, the book revelation said such about the end. Incidentally many of cannot endure to read it because they are afraid of what it contents however let us read Rev 14:5

And it says ”and their mouth was found no guile; for they are without fault before the Throne of God.

Beloved, who are people being describe there? ‘The elect’ dear beloved, there are without fault, in mouth no guile was found. Can that be said of you? Examine yourself and score yourself on the percentage of 1-100. What is your score? You can even create indices of what and what to cross check as an acid test to godly life. Praise the Name of the Lord!

This week is declared blessed in the Name of the Lord. The remaining days of this week will bring in returns to you in the name of Jesus. Whatever you standing in for and trust God to bring to past the Lord will honour you in the Name of Jesus.

Glory to You Father, adoration to Your Holy Name forever and ever Amen!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
