Birthright!!!

As it is expedient for a nursing mother to breastfeed her baby, it is also important we identify our Birthright!!!

Slashing the word into two; Birthright = Birth + Right.

Birth : This is the time when something begins ( especially life )

Right : This is a legitimate portion that belongs to a person by virtue of being a member of a family, body, place, ( as the case may be).

Birthright means the inheritance you are entitled to by means of birth.

As christians, we possess rights by virtue of being a Son of God!! I mean as christians, there are lots of “goodies” that become automatically ours just because we are children of God. And of a truth, some of us have sold our Birthright, we have traded it for something that’s not worth it either knowingly or not.

Genesis chapter 3 talks about how Adam and Eve sinned against God by being disobedient. What exactly did they do? They ate from the tree they ought not to eat from. Who caused this?? No other person but the devil!! What a man!! He went to Eve and deceived her ,telling her that If she eats of the forbidden tree she would he super knowledgeable, and that she would know what God knows!!! What a lie!! I can’t recall where it is ever recorded that we know or have ever known what God knows!! But he successfully enticed her and lured her into eating the apple and then she also gave her husband ( Adam)…. Although their eyes became open , but JUST to know that they were naked, they didn’t see anything beyond that!!! What is that telling us??? The devil will bring lies to you just for you to take what he has to offer and because we are so inquisitive to know things , we are quick to accept the lies and by so doing we trade our Birthright to him and do you know the most painful part of it??? THE DEVIL DOESN’T HAVE A NEED FOR YOUR BIRTHRIGHT!!!! That just the truth!!! He can’t use it cuz it’s meant for just you, he only deprives you of it and render you useless!!!! Because as we all know, God cursed Adam, Eve, and the serpent , and these curses are still effective till date, and to top it all, they we sent out of the garden of Eden!!!

Moving down to Genesis 25. We see the story of Jacob and his twin brother Esau. Esau got back home from the field, and was very famished!!! He met Jacob cooking and then asked for a portion of what was cooking, and Jacob being a “Sharp Guy ” told him he would give him the meal only on one condition; “first sell me your birthright ” , Esau on hearing this then replied, “Behold I am about to die; so of what use is the birthright??” Gen 25 vs 32…. 😳…..isn’t it quite Abnormal????

When I first read the passage of the scripture I reasoned that Esau should have acted like a typical African … I mean he should have just whined his brother ( Jacob) that he would sell the birthright, but after eating the food to his satisfaction, he would just tell Jacob ” oh boy, thanks for the meal, but do you actually think I’ll give you my birthright!!??” 😂🤣… since there was no actual written statements or typed documents!! ( You feel me right ? )…… Unfortunately, that didn’t happen …

What baffles me is that it’s not the first time that Jacob will be cooking and I’m sure it can’t be the first time Esau was coming back home so tired and hungry, so why then is it that it all happened like a film show that day!!! Contrary to Esau’s statement , he wouldn’t have died that day if he didn’t eat the food!!! But Oh!!! What a meal!!!

The devil is so crafty. He has set different lies on the table for christians to consume. And it’s quite sad how christians sit comfortably to swallow these false advances!! As Gods own children, we all are in procession of things that I can term as Inheritance. But the devil , being who he is will always find means of grabbing that inheritance from us and replacing it with emptiness and void!!!! We have various birthrights of blessings, good health, wisdom, knowledge, success, etc , and seems the devil knows all these, he will do Everything he can do to make you have doubts over these things that are automatically yours!!! And the moment you begin to have doubts then faith steps out and by so doing you have traded your birthrights to the devil and has embraced the mediocre things he has to offer!!

I believe you know that Esau probably never understood the essence of his birthrights or rather he never understood its usefulness…. because he wouldn’t have sold his life( birthright) for a plate of Food…

This is what the devil does, he would Input fear, doubts, lies, discouragement, and other negative things in the life of a Christian, he would so confuse you, ( remember he is the author of confusion) and make you destroy your birthright and in the end render you useless!!!!

Just so you know ; you have you guard your birthright jealously ( build a wall of fire around it), don’t even try to accept what the devil brings to you!!! When you see him coming in one way, attack him in seven ways!!! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and always remember that your birthright is your property, that shouldn’t be collected from you because it is for you and for no one else!!!

Possess it because it is yours!!!!!!

Understand it!!!!!!!

Know the importance!!!!!

And utilize it well!!!!!

REMEMBER ‼️‼️‼️

The devil has nothing to do with your birthright!!! He only steals it from you and render you useless!!!! It’s of no importance to him!!

If you sell your birthright, you will be the one to lose, cry , and suffer!!

YOUR BIRTHRIGHT IS ETERNAL!!!

Who Is Your True Love â¤ï¸????

Do people actually understand the sentence “I LOVE GOD “?????…. I doubt it!!!!!! One who is in love would do everything to please his or her lover! He or she goes extra mile for the lover and even to be point of being uncomfortable to make the partner comfortable ( true love ❤️)!!!!! And so this your love might appreciate you or might not!!! But being that you are in love, you close your eyes to it and move on with the person!!!! That is just the life of a typical being!!!!!!!

But………we claim to love Jesus and still we do not have “Goosebumps ” for Him!!!!! (😏). If we actually “love Him to the moon and back” like we say it, we won’t do things that would hurt Him just like we won’t hurt someone we are in love with!!!

WHY DO WE STAB GOD!!!!!!

I can’t find a better word for our negligence towards Christ than the word “STABBING “!!!! Why do you stab God????

How dare you!!!!!!!!(😡)!!!!!! Like seriously 🤷‍♀️, a supreme being came all the way down from the Holiest Heavens,( Humility) just to find Himself here in the sinful world!!! He came to us in our own likeness ( the being we are) . He received insults, was beaten, starved,slapped, was criticized!!!! He was nailed!!!!!! And to even crown it all, He was crucified!!!!!! I.e He died for you and me ( he was killed)!!!!

What else do you want?? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️.God came down to earth to “Die” for your own filthy sin!!!!!! Just like you being punished for an offense committed by someone else!!!!! How would you feel???? And you will be reciting “I love God”💃🏽💃🏽, when you know that they are just mere words!!!!!! Words by mouth!!!!!! Because as much as you say those words, you are still a confirmed customer of the “World”, which most definitely hurts God!!!!!!!!(😡)

How many times do you want to nail him???? 77 times 7 times?????!!!!!!

But it’s never too late!!!!!! As a matter of fact, late comers are not punished in the kingdom of God. All you need do is;

♐️know the truth( help yourself with the truth)

♐️Love him like your life depends on it

♐️Handle him like you are sure that he is the glue that holds your soul together

♐️Tell him you love him!!!!( profess)

♐️Then practice your love to Him by Obeying his commandments!!!!!! (John 14:15)

Selah………….::::🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

A Call To Order‼️‼️

The manner at which Jesus said “Follow me” in the book of mark is quite Amazing, or should I say is Wowing!! The sweet thing about the authority is that the people in question followed immediately (the Bible recorded that).

Wawuuuuu!!!!!! Isn’t it amazing?? Well if you ask me I’ll say “Yes it is”🙋. Can you imagine how great that is??.. As in 🤷‍♀️; these people were attending to there means of survival (fishing), they were involved in the activities that put food on their table, and then Jesus Christ being the MAN HIMSELF, just shows up,and says, “Follow me”, and “Wheew”, like an enchantment, they followed!!!!

Now, God has given us the opportunity to go about our businesses in life, He has given us the opportunity to live our lives as comfortably as ever, but still requests for our dedicated services.

What am I saying?? We have the privilege to do our stuffs and still serve God. How much of our time do we think He(God) is asking for?? Well I’ll tell you what……..He wants just little of your time!!!!! Just little!!! Not too much!!! But still, some people would go about their businesses all round the year and would not sometimes remember that it is “God all the way”!!!!!! not thinking of the fact that it’s God who provided that business that also gave the life they use in putting effort for the best outputs in the business (sad)!!!

Well I’ll say God is really patient!!!! He is so lenient with us!!!!! I must tell you….. He honestly is!!!!! When I examine my life and carry out the experiments of my day to day transactions (activities) , I just have to salute God Almighty for sparing my little carefree self!!!!!😔😔🙏🙏

And so, for these reasons we have no excuse whatsoever!!!! We are accountable fore everything we do on earth and we need to realize that it’s by Gods grace we are where we are, and we cannot neglect His ever presence in our lives as we have to ascribe all thanks to him.

Simon, Andrew, Levi, and the likes should have given excuses of their activities, they should have said, “Jesus, we are just too busy for this calling, we need to sort ourselves first, we really do not have much time to waste here , if we are fortunate to finish our work on time, we will look for you(as there were no phones to communicate with), we’ll definitely get back to you” These are replies that we all give God these days!!!!!!!! So sad!!!! But rather, they obeyed, in fact the manner at which they complied seem to me like they had already reached a certain rapport level long before the authority was given!!!!!!

Who else are we willing to follow if not Jesus??? What is that thing we are serving in our lives that we are not even taking out time to see that Jesus is with us(Emmanuel). Let’s not even bother or try to question His supreme authority because we will loose in the end!!!!! Let’s do whatever He says, Let’s serve in for real!!!!!!

God is a merciful God and it’s sure that we will forever obtain mercy if we walk with Him……… but the moment we begin to play pranks/ games on Him, he doesn’t hesitate to treat us the way we deserve, and by so doing we will say God is punishing us, whereas we dug the holes ourselves!!!!!!!

DO NOT BE TOO COMFORTABLE IN THAT POSITION, GOD CAN REPLACE YOU IF CARE IS NOT TAKEN. HE GIVETH AND TAKETH BACK!!!!!!!

(You do not mess with God and get away with it, because God deals with people( just in case you don’t know) )

PRAYER 🙏;

Heavenly Father,

Help me serve you, give me the grace to always come back to you whenever am going off track ,because I am ready to be aligned with You!!!!!!

Amen!!!!!!!!!!

WORD(Do not conform)!!!!

First,

The word conform means to comply with rules,standards or laws. It also means to act in accordance or harmony.
Now, fixing this definition in our topic,all am saying in essence is Not complying with the patterns of the word.Not agreeing to whatever thing the world 🌎 does.
Okay

Why do we say we shouldn’t concur to worldly things????
We shouldn’t agree or comply with worldly patters because we are trying to meet a target 🎯.

We have a goal,and there are certain standards that we must follow in other to meet this target.

The Bible says in John 8:32 ESV;

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Why did I use this bible verse??

We have been given a particular pattern to follow and then because of any other reason or another 

You leave that pattern and the go for another one which you feel is right…..then you fail❗️❗️❗️
Ohk

Let’s use a typical example…..

 We resume a fresh semester,and then a lecturer who you have prolly never met before comes into the lecture room and then dictates the semesters Scheme Of Work….

The Scheme Of Work is a list of topics that would be treated that semester ,and why is this scheme given??? It is given to guide us through the semester,and also enable us have an insight of the topics would be treated that semester…

Now,

When this is done, the wise students would try as much as possible to always do a research on each topic given and even though they do not fully understand the topic especially if it had not been treated before,they surely will have an idea of what it is and even when the lecturer comes to treat the topic it won’t be a though a magic is being performed………….So a pattern has been given,then it’s left for the individual to now use his initiative to utilize it so when problem comes which is the devil, we will be able to attack!!

Moving on

I also realized that we do not know what we stand for,and that is why it’s so easy to embrace anything the world offers.

I believe we are given the power to be able to affirm our place in Christ and then with that nothing whatsoever should be able to make us do otherwise…

Well par adventure you do not know,then you better know that you have to be for somebody.

You can’t just be hanging in the air…..

It’s is when the world sees that you do not have a direction and tend to turn at any where the breeze blows, then they will grab you ,manipulated you,and in the end dump you…..

An adage says if you don’t stand for something,you will fall for anything.

You definitely have to be for someone as you can’t serve two masters!!!!!!!

Even the Bible says in Matthew 6:24English Standard Version (ESV)No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

1 John 2:15 ESV 

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Now we can’t claim to love God and his works and then do not do what we ought to do..

We can’t go to church every Sunday,attend every prayer meetings,carry bibles and church hymnals and at the same time also love the world 🌎..

That is virtually not possible……

As I said earlier,you can’t serve two masters, you have to forfeit one for the other.

It’s either God or the Devil….

You can’t be serving both

It won’t work!!!!
Well just in case you don’t know God is not a fool.

He is way too smart for you to play pranks with.

You can’t be tongue speaking,demon fighting this minute

And then you are indulging in unruly behaviors the next minute….

Then you run to the church to pray!!!!!!!

Really????

🙄🙄🙄🙄!!! 

It’s quite funny because God doesn’t operate that way……Even the Bible says shall we continue in sin and expect the grace of God to abound,God Forbid!!!!!
My best part of the New Testament is Romans 12:1-2 ESV 
I appeal to you therefore, 

brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Here We are being begged to keep our body and soul 

We are being appealed to do that which is right!!!!

But do you know that in as much as this verse is begging us, it is also a verse that we should take heed of because it also comes as a serious warning ⚠️ 

How????

I will like to use a practical example…..

If your dad is leaving for work in the morning and then tells you “Femi, Please wash my socks before I get back from work…..please I need you to wash them clean for me”…….and then You upon hearing this goes all the way down the street to continue playing football hoping to come back later to wash the socks….

Then you get back home and you meet your dad and he asks if you washed the socks and you say No,what do you think he would do????

Even if your dad is not the type that uses the rod,at least there would be a punishment attached to not obeying which may even cost your allowance…

 

In essence,what am saying is in as much as God is lenient with us

We should also try our best to obey his will so as not to incur His wrath
Sigh…..

Sin is easy

Very sweet

So exciting 

So interesting 

So interesting 

Wanna party

Wanna club

Want to have sex

Wanna drink 

Wanna this,wanna that❗️❗️❗️

(Smh)……

All these will end!!!!

Money will finish

The parties will begin and end

The club will open and end

You will drink and be drunk

You will have sex and be weak !!!!

There is always a finishing line for every race!!!

But it’s the reward at the end of the day that matters.

The reward of the above listed things are disastrous.

In fact it can lead to death 💀 

But the end result of a good life with Christ is eternal life!!!



Conforming is very easy

It’s very easy to do bad things

And that’s why personally when I feel I want to backslide, I’ll always bring myself to remember the adage that says Nothing good comes easy!!!!

And so will not compromise 

Yes,

One key thing is Holy Spirit

Let’s always involve him in our daily activities 

And he surely will direct our part 

It’s not easy at all..

In fact we do not think of the consequences of some actions before taking them 

But it’s only God that can help us

If we think of our aims and objectives

Our purpose for being on earth

And also including God in our dealings,we will be in check
Romans 12:2 ESV 

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Let’s involve God in all we do

Let’s not be part of those that say

“If you can’t beat the crowd,then you join them ”

That’s a wrong thing to believe 
Let’s also always try our best to live our lives as though we are God

And the reason I always say this is God will not be involved in a mess, he won’t lie,he would do things that is not expected of Him, so when we live like that, our lives will be in the proper place and even if we are going to fall as humans,it won’t be all that serious 
Let’s also remember the acronym 

WWJD—What would Jesus do???

If Jesus were to be in your shoes would he lie???would he keep malice??or would he backbite????

No❗️❗️❗️❗️

He would never do that !!!!!

So,imitate God the father,son,and Holy Spirit, and you life will never remain the same….

Lord we thank you for the insight 

We bless you because you have given us grace to begin a new life with you

And thank you Lord for forgiving our sins

We ask for a new life filled with your great and tender mercies

Grant us grace to practice what we preach 

And also help us to always flee from all appearances of evil
Amen 🙏Lord we thank you for the insight 

We bless you because you have given us grace to begin a new life with you

And thank you Lord for forgiving our sins

We ask for a new life filled with your great and tender mercies

Grant us grace to practice what we preach 

And also help us to always flee from all appearances of evil
Amen 🙏

Moving on

I also realized that we do not know what we stand for,and that is why it’s so easy to embrace anything the world offers.

CONSECRATION AND SUPERNATURAL LIVING.

CONSECRATION AND SUPERNATURAL LIVING.
Consecration? This can best be explained as the solemn dedication to a special purpose or service,usually religious.The word CONSECRATION can be associated to the word “SACRED”
    What does it mean to be consecrated?

Being consecrated is when you are set apart,I.e you are Holy,not indulging in ungodly activities.And this can by worshipping,praying,and fasting.
       SUPERNATURAL LIVING

This means freedom from sin.A life of victory. Living a life that is beyond the natural.

We have to completely give over a thing or person to God.Consecration may involve the destruction of things life that are not pleasing to God, and this includes the most important things in our possession.
 We should be able to make bold and say we are not of the world even though we live in it. And therefore we won’t operate as children of this world but ask Christian Champs. Romans 12 vs 1 and 2 says; 1: Therefore,I urge you brothers, in the view of Gods mercy,to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God…..This is our spiritual act of worship.

2; Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world,but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is……His good pleasing and perfect will.
We would note that Brother Paulwas calling the Roman believers to not just surrender their physical bodies to God but the entirety of their Mortal Existence. In other words,Jesus wants every thing from your life. He wants your dreams,your desire,and your disappointments.
We should also ensure that we glorify God in all our dealings in body and spirit. According to 1 Corinthians 6vs 20…. For ye are bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body,and in your spirit, which are Gods(for God).

Romans 6 vs 13 also says , Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin:but yield yourselves unto God,as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Living a consecrated life is not an easy thing… permit me to speak in pidgin”No be beans talk”… why is this????? Trials and temptation would come.people would criticize you, they would say all sort to discourage you, but I’ll tell you what…. Do not mind them…… Just keep moving!!!! Be distinguished.Make yourself Outstanding 💯….Clean❗️spotless ❗️and free❗️❗️
We read that Brother Paul faced hardship. Went to the prison because of Jesus. Was even stoned…Ahhhhh❗️❗️What other suffering is greater than this⁉️ Still, he didn’t look back, he didn’t curse God , neither did he loose Faith…
So……. What excuse do we have????What are we going through that is making us doubt if God is on our side???
Look here friend……..You better collect your baton and run to meet Jesus 🏃🏿‍♀️to finish the race. Believe me you, its would be a victorious thing to say “I have fought the good fight, and I have finished my course”….😀😀
Now……

   Nothing, nobody……should separate us from the love of Christ……..irrespective of the situation….God will never make us face a problem that we would not be able to handle and tackle… He would always device a means of getting out of any difficulty…

    

      God expects a lot from us and we have to give him our all. Do not allow the world to have a say over your life because jesus has the final say. Do not be a part of the group that believes the saying “if you cannot beat them, you join them”…..
    We are different from the people of the world because we operate with the angels in heaven and so are mini angels….. And so 1 peter 2 vs 9 says ” ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy nation, a peculiar people; that yes should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light….
In conclusion……….

     We should be proud to be sons of God. We should be able to stand anywhere at anytime to proclaim the mystery of faith….Because even the Bible says in Romans 1 vs 16….”For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth,?to the Jew first, and also the Greek……

   Let us preach the gospel and make every body know that Jesus is Lord….

  Let us also live a life that is worthy of emulation. A life that increases our CGPA in the presence of God.. A life of miracles and testimonies….

    And by this……you will see what God will do in your life….
Here are things we should always remember to do in our daily living…..
1: Ensure to live a life that would not only be veiled in person but would also speak the kind of person you are in the world
2: Always take pleasing God as a part of your daily responsibility
3: Live your life as though you are God himself. I.e Do that which only God would do!!!!!!
Here are some bible passages we should go through in our closet
1: Romans 12 vs 1-2
2: 1 peter 2 vs 9
3: 1 Corinthians 6 vs 20
4: Romans 6 vs 19
5: Romans 6 vs 13
6: 2 Timothy 2 vs 20-21
7: Romans 6 vs 16
8: Exodus 20 vs 25
9: 1 Corinthians 2 vs 14-16
Let us pray

Heavenly Father I thank you for your word

I praise you because you are beautiful awesome and kind

Lord grant me the grace to keep my self Holy for You

Give me grace to love serve and proclaim you

Now and forever

Amen.

RETURN TO YOUR FIRST LOVE…🏃🏿‍♀️

Do you really know what it means to love someone? Do you know what it takes to love someone? Ohk……let me put it this way….When you feel or know you are in love with someone,what are those things you do to make things work I.e what you do to show you love the person or what the person does to show he loves you back……….Sigh🤔…….hope you are not getting confused??🙄🤔……
  Now…….when a person receives Christ as his savior,he experiences the delight of first love for the Lord.God witnesses with his spirit that he is a child of God(Romans 8 vs 16) and his newfound relationship brings great joy and freedom……..
JESUS spoke to the church of Ephesus saying ” I have somewhat against thee,because you have left your first love.Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen,and repent,and do the first works………….” (Revelation 2 vs 4-5)…….
Hmmmmmmm……..
You have given your life to Christ many times, but somehow,you have fallen short of His glory. You have gone back to those things you promised to let go off…..You are doing things that you told your self and God you won’t do again…
Well………could this be because you are trying to blend with the world??
Could this be because you don’t want to be mocked by friends and loved ones??? Or is it that you feel things are not just working out in your favor…….well that happens to every thing created by Abba Father…..

At this juncture, all you need do is to go back to Him….Get your bearing….its never too late….You need prayers………The bible says in Philippians 4:6-7 that in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.And the peace of God that passes all human understanding,shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus…..

Also ensure that you dedicate a day or two to fast because fasting effectively demonstrates the reality that life does not consists of things you possess (Luke12 vs 15 and Deut 8vs 3) and depends on your awareness of spiritual,mental,and emotional needs…….

If we are able to Return to God, things will fall in place….and we know that we will forever dwell in Him and He in us…..🙏…

God bless us……shalom
