Create and recreate

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7.

Man is created by the word of God, the same word is for his recreation.

Many times as a child, we made sculpture but they never became a living soul. I have seen drawings and pictures that are unmistakably original, but they inanimate and not alive.

When God made man man from dust, it remained earthly until his word and spirit came upon him. Without the word of God, the sculpture or body disintegrates and lacks value.

The greatest tragedy for man is the loss of God’s presence and voice due to the fall.

Man become vulnerable to everything after disconnecting from his source.

The word of God determine the worth of man. Man has no capacity to determine his worth or add value to himself. Attempts at improvement and enhancement have heightened frustrations.

Creation was concluded but continued in Christ; the author and finisher

Whatever was lost at the fall, redemption supplies; corrupted in Adam, perfected in Christ. The word of God creates brand new men from humans or the old man.

You are no longer dust, human, flesh or carnal; new men in Christ.

The body recieves life again; the voice and the presence of God is restored. The same word of creation recreates, reveals and sustains the new creation. The life of God is not independent but interdependent on the word of God.

Identity is not from popular opinion, but from the word of creation.

The word of God is your life, dust is not your source. Creation, recreated!

I am made by his word and I live by his word and not for dust.

“By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.”Psalms 33:6.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” John 1:1-3.

Discovery channel

And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat:and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:30-31.

There are different outlook in life. What is seen determines what is obtained; the have’s and have not.mSome see what they lack others see what they have.

There is nothing needed by man that was not created with man. Lack is not due to possession but according to knowledge.

Whatever is discovered becomes available; the unknown is the cause of lack. Discovery changes man’s status automatically. Man is not to be sustained according to his personal resources. That is the reason for corruption and wealth acquisition.

There is nothing needed by man that has not been provided.

Knowledge of Gods unlimited resources is key to living beyond frustration. The new man is created for sufficiency, saving resources is a good venture but is insufficiënt to execute divine projects; hence many are stranded.

The season of beging is over, your eternal sufficiency is guaranteed in God. The curse brought lack and want, redemption broke the curse and abundance is provided.

The word delivers the riches of redemption.

Just like Salvation is given, sufficiency is also given.

Prosperity is not achieved, it is recieved.

Black is not synonymous with lack, ignorance is the cause of lack. Redemption is key to a glorious destiny, a release of heavens abundance.

God lacks nothing and you are not created to be in lack.

Welcome to your destiny of abundance, the best things are freely given by God.

Discover The things that has been prepared for you in Christ.

“Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge:

and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.”Isaiah 5:13.

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”1 Corinthians 2:12.

Recreation word

As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle; When the Almighty was yet with me,when my children were about me;When I washed my steps with butter,and the rock poured me out rivers of oil; Job 29:4-6.

The word of God recreates the world of man. What is seen from the word determine what is seen in life.

Being posted to Jos city in 2001 for the mandatory national youth service was an unusual experience in my life. A city of rocks, hills, valleys and springs of water.

A civil service town in armed crisis made it an unfavorably “dry town”.

That was when I came accross this verse of scripture.

As a youth with the secret of God on My terbanacle I declared to my friends; In this city, I will wash my steps with butter instead of water. The rocks shall yield rivers of oil for me instead of water.

Every time I beheld rocks and springs of water of that beautiful but besieged city my confession was reinforced. That became my experience; the word creates my world.

In church some days ago, this scripture came to heart again. At the time of tightness, restriction and famine; I declare again, wash your feet with butter, and rivers of oil burst forth from harsh conditions.

This is the value or benefit of the secrets of God. Its key to distinction in life.

This is the best season for those that tarbernacle with God.

No more dry seasons for you.

Prosperity is one of the riches of redemption; for those that return, it is returned to them.

Gold like dust, and stones of the Brooks; his secrets give acces to unusual affluence.

“If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up,thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.”Job 22:23-25

God’s craft

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? Psalms 8:3-4.

Every manufacturer is proud of his products. He also ensures that his brand is the best line of such products. After sales services and warranties are the norm. Even extended warranty is offered by some manufacturers.

God is mindful of man far above and beyond every of his creation. He takes personal interest in everything that partains to us. He is our maker,we are his workmanship, his word is the Assembly line. Not one is duplicated, each one is customised for dominion.

The word is the raw material for man’s manufacture and essential for his sustenance.

His word creates your world, his word give man worth.

The fall disconnects from his word and they rise on reconnection to his word.

His word is everything. His word is personalised in Christ. Your world starts with an encounter of his word. His word begins everything. While many are going everywhere seeking meaning by all means, God is chasing you with his eternal word where lies all the details about you.

You may have heard the highlights of your life, his word gives details. He is chasing you, he is mindful of you. From the beginning till now, he never stops chasing you.

His word does not make things better,he makes new things; God’s craft. Created for every good thing; mindful of you. Every good thing available in God is crafted or obtained in his word.

I am God’s craft! The most amazing product made by God.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”Ephesians 2:10.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”John 1:1-3.

Your word has come

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Psalms 33:6.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1.

Every product has a label with the manufacturer addres on it. Where the product is made affects its outlook.

There was a time that Taiwan and China was the emblem of substandard products. We may not be able to say the same today. Your quality is determined by your maker.

While we are all made from the same raw materials, we do not have the same quality of life. The good life has quality and quantity.

Life is recieved, not achieved; Life is recieved, not produced.

Your maker provides the basics but the glorious life is recieved by choice. The highest life is one that death has no power over; everlasting life. Common life ends in death, we are thankful for it, but there is more.

Fools live for retirement, kings live eternaly.

Earthly life ends in the dust, heavenly life has no end.

Where are you made? London England, New York  USA, Gwanzhou China or Mexico City Mexico; its okay.

Life abundant is made in heaven, not in Harlem; which life do you have? That determines the quality and quantity of life.

God’s word is life, gives life, new life.

The word for your creation was with God, that for your recreation is in Christ.

Your word has come; connect and collect eternal life.

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”John 1:14.

Under construction

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 1 John 1:1.

Have you ever witnesses a miracle? Have you ever been there when a miracle took place.

Its the most amazing testimony; “I saw it happen”

But more than that, I was part of making it happen. No stories, no glory, just standing in awe of God. That was the story of John. The same word, the same God, the same effect.

He saw it, he touched it, he used it and it worked for him; the word works.

He can be touched, he is by you, with you and can be in you. Its not all talk, he touches lives with eternal effect. He says what he means and means what he says.

The word of God keeps life under construction and delivers from destruction.

The same miracles starts when you understand that you are a word product.

The same word upholds all things, then the word takes effect. If it is not effective in your life, you may be disconnected from him. Creation is a miracle, the new creation lives in the miraculous.

Created by God, translated in Christ and glorified in life. Completed by God in the beginning, finished in Christ by his word.

I am a miracle, man is a miracle; creation is a miracle, life is also miraculous. It began as one and continues miraculously till date. What is missing now is constructed and finished by the word of God. Always under construction, always being perfected.

The new creation experiences miracles everyday. The word works miracles, signs and wonders.

For every genuine change in life, the word is at work. I am under construction.

“(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)”1 John 1:2.

“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”2 Corinthians 3:18.

Things fall in place.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5:12.

Natural life is a definite gift, having a beginning and an end. Death is not God’s ultimate plan, it came because of the fall of man. Perfection existed before the fall, imperfection came by the fall. Death is disconnection from God; sin brought death, everything began to die. When creation disconnected from his creator death was created. Now know ye the root of failures, decay, dissappointments and destructions

Its a programme from the fall of man.

Death is the proof of the fall, eternal life the gift of redemption. The fall of man led to the fall of all things.

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; mere anarchy is loosed upon the world”

Anarchy was unleashed on the world, everything also fell apart.

Creation became subject to corruption, death and decay. Life obtained an expiry date, from birth death resumés. Death is programmed into natural life. Salvation is reconnection to God, a return to eternal life; God kind of life. That life is in Christ; Christ is life.Salvation recovers life from the dead, order from disorder and return to the garden of perfection.

From slavery sons emerge, from corruption incorruption is Born.

From death to life, from chaos to order, from falling apart to falling in place. Redemption is not meant for your reduction, its key to elevation. It delivers from sin, death and corruption.

New Life is obtained and sustained in Christ. When Christ takes his place, everything falls in place. Nothing is permitted to fall apart, everything falls in place in Christ.

Save and safe.

“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.”Romans 8:19.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:and they that hear shall live.”John 5:25.

Too defended

For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Zechariah 2:5.

There was this secular song I heard as a child “My mother said we’re not to play with fire oh oh, fire will burn you”
It’s a reminder of what not to do around a flame. A flame has no owner, it burns everything on its way. It’s better to avoid the flames rather than attempt to tame the flame. The saved are aflame with God, they are no go areas. Those that play with lives aflame have burnt issues to show. The lighted place can be accessed after the flame has been quenched, not before.
The saviour and your maker is greater than the adversary. Redemption is not only for spiritual cover, it grants physical cover. The value of salvation should not be watered down.
Spiritual cover is the foundation for life protection. Jesus was inaccessible till he gave himself up as a sacrifice. Paul was killed several times and raised up before he gave up.
John was banished to the island of Patmos after death was denied several times.
Even though we are considered sheep for slaughter, no knife of the enemy is permitted to touch us. Vulnerable yet inaccessible, defenseless yet impregnable. We are lighted for life, salvation light up lives. The light of Christ in us repels evil and defends us.
We are not touched because the condition is not right, but because of his wall of fire.
The wall of fire by night and the cloud by day within and without. This is the value of salvation, too defended to be victims in life.
Your defender determines your defense; who is your defender? The flames are real, your defense is sure; light up your life with Christ.

The saved are safe, are you?
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”Psalms 46:1.
“And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them;
and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it.”Obadiah 1:18.

Hope and Truth.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Psalms 46:1-2.

Salvation connects to God; taking refuge in God. God is too faithful to fail, every other system fails.There is no system or process trusted by man that is not failure prone.
We explain these failures in many ways yet forget that man has fallen. Its amazing that some trust a failing system and disdain God’s secure system. Governments, programmes, economy, businesses, society, celebrities fail. Its no longer news yet they are in the news daily.
When everything around is falling or failing, our lives should not follow suit. Living without hope gives a refugee status in life.
Salvation gives hope to the hopeless.
Hope gives an anchor to life; order in the midst of the present disorder. Salvation secures the present and the future. It gives life now and for ever.
Its interesting to know that whatever fails, falls or disappoints is a lie. God cannot lie or fail, his truth endures for ever. Lies, lie or fall; failure is the end point.
Trusting God commits life to the truth.
Salvation connects to a system and person that cannot fail. God cannot fail, everything is upheld by his word and oath. The saved are safe in God.
Take refuge in Christ, its your consolation and hope for life and eternity.
“That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;”Hebrews 6:18-19.
