By Faith Not Feeling 


Jesus Jesus you are the love of my soul. Jesus Jesus you are the love of my soul. O Jesus You are the love of my soul. O Jesus, You are love of my soul.//  Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be. Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Yes Father great is Thy faithfulness, thank You Lord for Your wonderful love upon all that You created. Blessed be Thy Holy Name for. Who is like unto thee Father, there is none like thee. We worship You we praise Your Holy Name, we adore You for You are God and there is none like Thee.

Thank You blessed Redeemer for Your love and care. Even when we are undeserving of Your love, You offer it to us. We are grateful, we therefore say all glory, all honour, all adoration belong to You forever in Jesus Name.

Beloved, Holy Thursday is here, incidentally is our faith clinic day. Is naturally for us to flow with the messages over the world talking about what happened in Gethsemane and likes of it.

Has beautiful that might be and has wonderful that may sound but we chose to go this way. The topic before us is coming our purposely to reinforce the finish work of Calvary. Jesus died many years ago. The problem we are having in our world today is not whether Jesus went to cross to die. Is not even whether He rose from the death. The problem of this generation is ‘in accepting the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus as a transaction done on their behalf.’

So we are not singing song about His death for it is a done deal and nothing will change it. We will rather dwell on the acceptance of that “act” done on our behalf. Praise God.

So if I may ask you, “do you believe in death and resurrection of our Jesus Christ? Do you believe that it was done to set you free from eternal damnation? Do you believe that through His death, God grants you eternal life. (Rom 5; Col 1:20-22; Heb 2:14-18; 9:15-28; 1 Cor 15: 57).

This takes us back to our theme for this month tagged month of Settlement by the Spirit of God. Please read the theme text again. There is no others way we would have been reconciled unto God except by the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our theme text verse 18 emphasizes on those who believe not. The Word said that ‘they are condemned already.’ Jesus coming into the world was the reason for the season. Now, if you believe not in Him and His death and resurrection, you are condemned already.

The first chapter verse twenty-nine of John said (John bearing witness to who Jesus is) ‘behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.’ So, what we saying here is that you must accept this transaction as being done on your behalf. Praise God.

Jesus death on the cross brought salvation to mankind. Have you receive the salvation package? Then you go a step further by accepting also the finish work of Calvary as a transaction done on your behalf. That is my Easter message to you.

The Word of God is encouraging us to appropriate this work by faith and you are free forever. The settlement deal sealed off every harassment from the pit hell. Satan has no hold over your life anymore.

So the next time you feel harass, remind the Satan that Jesus has paid the price. Let him know that he has no legal ground to disturb you or anything that concerns You. Praise God.

Let him know that the blood of Jesus sets you free and you are free forever. Also let him know that Jesus is not stopping there, He is going ahead of you to make every crooked path straight, your mountains low and the valley filled.

Let him know that you walking in liberty; you are walking in dominion. Praise God.

Beloved, the faith we are professing here is not of feeling but of faith in Christ Jesus, the hope of our glory. Praise God. The just shall live by faith.

I believe someone is choosing to live by faith today. Beloved not by works you have done but by faith you appropriate salvation to your life and by faith you also believe that when your life ends here on earth that God will receive you in glory.

You need not fear where you will spend eternity because if you live well here your eternity is guaranteed in Christ Jesus as you have read.

Why are so many finding it difficult to accept the great transaction deal by Jesus? It is as result of ‘pride.’ However you must know that God detest the proud.  It was pride that brought Satan down from heaven (Isa 14:13-14). So be careful how you live. Even our Lord Jesus display humility while He was here on earth, and it only in humility you will be blessed in Him. You will discover more on the second part of today’s ministration.

So join me to read more on faith booster for the day:


“The just shall live by faith.” Rom. 1:17

I shall not die. I can, I do believe in the Lord my God, and this faith will keep me alive. I would be numbered among those who in their lives are just; but even if I were perfect I would not try to live by my righteousness; I would cling to the work of the Lord Jesus, and still live by faith in Him and by nothing else. If I were able to give my body to be burned for my Lord Jesus, yet I would not trust in my own courage and constancy, but still would live by faith.

“Were I a martyr at the stake I’d plead my Saviour’s name; Intreat a pardon for His sake, And urge no other claim.”

To live by faith is a far surer and happier thing than to live by feelings or by works. The branch, by living in the vine, lives a better life than it would live by itself, even if it were possible for it to live at all apart from the stem.

To live by clinging to Jesus, by deriving all from Him, is a sweet and sacred thing. If even the most just must live in this fashion, how much more must I who am a poor sinner! Lord, I believe. I must trust Thee wholly. What else can I do? Trusting Thee is my life. I feel it to be so. I will abide by this even to the end.

Beloved, I chose to trust in the finish work of Calvary. There Christ settled all that concerns me. If you are desiring same read below what Jesus expect from you:

Do You Want Christ To Touch You At Your Deepest Point Of Need?

Here are five observations from an incident in the life of a leper whom Jesus healed :

  1. We must acknowledge we have a need.

A lowly leper falls at Jesus’ feet and beseeches Him, Lord, you can make me clean.

Of all the people Jesus could have helped, He chose the one in desperate need. Christ cautions the self-sufficient non-lepers of the world: “You say, I am richI do not need a thing‘… You do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” (Revelation 3:17)

  1. We must come to Jesus.

The leper came and besought the Master for the solution to his miserable condition.

Many of us in seeking a solution to our needs seem to go to everyone and to everything but Jesus: Friends, seminars, books, tapes… you name it. But not to the Lord Jesus.

You refuse to come to Me to have life.” (John 5:40)

  1. We must come to Jesus in humility.

The leper fell on his knees worshipping Jesus and begging Him for help, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.

James reminds us, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6)

  1. We must come to Jesus believing He can and will help us.

The leper cried out, “You can make me clean.

Because it is our Father’s intent to conform us into the Saviour’s image, we can be assured that He will do whatever is best for us toward that end:

In all things God works for the good of those who love HimFor those (whom) Godpredestined (He)conformed to the likeness of His Son.” (Romans 8:28a, 29a)

  1. We must come to Jesus and ask Him to help us.

James cautions, “You do not have, because you do not ask God.” (James 4:2b)

By our asking for help we are acknowledging the fact that we have reached the end of our resources and are now relying upon His. Our “extremity” then becomes God’s “opportunity.

Beloved, did you read that our extremity is God’s opportunity. Are you in dare need of salvation? Do you want Jesus into your life? Do you want to be free from yokes, bondage, slavery or what have you?  Jesus is here to make your desire a reality. Come and accept the transaction deal and you will be free forever.

Beloved, probably the problem we have is pride. Humble yourself before Jesus and you will be helped.  The lepers did and he was helped. Cast off pride into the sea and see the King of glory rise on your behalf and sets you on high. If you are finding it difficult to accept Jesus works of salvation then you are already condemned. I did not say it rather John 3: 18b says so.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
