Once again we are so please to welcome you in another segment of our fellowship – The Faith Clinic… Are you excited? Praise God…. indeed we have a God that have a resounding and earth lifting Name… Jehovah.. He is the Man of war… Who can stand Him in battle… alleluia somebody…

Beloveth, we are still going on with our teaching on Divine Mercy and Grace… knowledge is power… when you know Who and what you stand in for. It gives you power to stand tall and still as long it takes to fall through…Praise the Lord. no man can serve God effectively and obediently without the key gift from Him… in your strength you will expire faster than you think… go into despair and depression…but with God on your side… He will daily draw you nearer to Himself…Praise the Lord!!!

Beloveth…on God’s platform we stand upon… There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit…Rom 8:1.

Beloveth  why are God’s grace and mercy the first steppingstones to greater freedom in our lives? Because during our struggles to break free from debilitating behaviours, they are His platform we stand to gain our footing. Once firmly standing, we can then focus on the Holy Spirit’s work on our issues rather than be perennially stuck in the quicksand of guilt.

How many times have we succumbed to areas of weakness through temptation, only to be bound hopelessly for hours, days, weeks, or year in the pit of condemnation?

Guilt is the strategy of our adversary- the devil. No wonder the scriptures call him the accuser of the brethren (Rev.12:10). Guilt and condemnation are his twin sisters that work to keep our eyes focused upon ourselves, our stuff, and our struggles so that we give up hope that God can set us free.

Jesus’ finished work on the cross exemplifies His Ones-for-all sacrifice to grant forgiveness and never- ending grace and mercy (Heb 10:10-13). We grow in faith when we ruthlessly choose to believe this truth from God’s Word instead of our feelings of guilt and condemnation. Yes, difficult to do at first, but oh so necessary. This broad platform silences the enemy’s accusation. Then, we can turn our full attention towards freedom from captivity as the Lord directs our next steps forward.

Guilt and condemnation are far different from the Holy Spirit conviction or convincing ability to reveal our shortcomings and need for God’s healing touch.

The Spirit’s conviction doesn’t drag us down into pit. Instead, it points us upward to the Saviour by providing hope and revealing His way out of our stuff. Holy Spirit’s conviction draws us to Jesus’ lordship because of His righteous ability to help us and it also convinces us of the enemy’s defeat in our lives (Jn 16:7-11).

When we make the platform of God’s grace and mercy our foundation and starting point- especially when we fall into unhealthy patters of living- we can confidently dust ourselves off in confession and look for Jesus’ cleansing work in our lives (1 Jn 1:9).  Then, instead of sinking into guilt like we may have done in the past, we now take steps forward, defeating the enemy with every footfall that grace and mercy provide us.

Beloveth, like Grace and Mercy are twin sisters that God uses to lift us up from our pitfall… Guilt and Condemnations are the twin sisters devil uses to hold back/down his victims in their pitfall… what a tragedy… but glory be to God Who made a way of escape for us through His Grace and Mercy… Praise the Lord somebody….

In our topic below we saw God’ exemplifying same in the life of our father of faith – Abraham… Abraham failed God… but God looked beyond him… He focused on where He was taking him to… God looked at the destinies He have weaved around him … He took him and brought him into His glorious plan – all his shall be blessed through him….He made him to come to the knowledge of Him through a gradual leading and at the end His plan for him was fulfill and his destiny achieved… Praise the Lord… through Divine Mercy and grace… I came in the strength to announce to someone today… you will live our your ordained destiny by God… it will not be cut short or circumvented in Jesus Name…

Come along with us for more:

After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he answered. “Take your son,” He said, “your only [son] Isaac, whom you love, go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.”—Genesis 22:1–2

Our difficulty is not that we don’t know God’s will. Our discomfort comes from the fact that we do know His will, but we do not want to do it!

When God first spoke to Abraham, His commands were straightforward. “Go to a land I will show you” (Gen. 12:1). Then God led Abraham through a number of tests over the years. Abraham learned patience as he waited on God’s promise of a son, which took twenty-five years to be fulfilled. Abraham learned to trust God through battles with kings and through the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The pinnacle of Abraham’s walk of faith was when God asked him to sacrifice the one thing that meant more to him than anything else. Abraham’s previous obedience indicated that he would have quickly and decisively sacrificed anything else God asked of him, but was he prepared for this? God did not ask Abraham to make such a significant sacrifice at the beginning of their relationship. This came more than thirty years after Abraham began walking with God.

As the Father progressively reveals His ways to you in your Christian pilgrimage, you, like Abraham, will develop a deeper level of trust in Him. When you first became a Christian, your Master’s instructions were probably fundamental, such as being baptized or changing your lifestyle. But as you learn to trust Him more deeply, He will develop your character to match bigger tests, and with the greater test will come a greater love for God and knowledge of His ways.

Are you ready for God’s next revelation?

What a great quest question… are you ready to receive God’s next revelation to you from where you are standing today… beloveth, let us ask God for His Divine Mercy and Grace to be realize abundantly to us in Jesus Name….

May we through the power of this revelation fulfill our destines in Jesus Who paid the supreme sacrifice on the Cross … Amen

May we grow also in grace as we grow in faith…to keep abiding in God always in Jesus Name Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!…. Alleluia !!!!!!!!!!!!

Beloveth grow in Grace daily… Receive His Abundant Mercies to keep obeying God all the days of your life Amen…. Shun Guilt and Condemnation as you take your daily work Amen….

Remain blessed in the Lord.
