How to Maintain Constant Spiritual Appetite

spiritual appetite “Blessed are they which do HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS: for they shall be filled”. (Mathew 5:6)  

Most times, spiritual things have natural parallels. People often struggle to maintain constant spiritual appetite. Maybe one listened to a preacher on Sunday and decided to stay red hot for the Lord and to walk closely with Him, but after a few days one finds out that it is difficult to even pray or read his Bible. Maybe he is even the type that has struggled over and again to keep constant spiritual life but all his efforts has been to no avail. The answer is the Spirit and the Word; yielding to them will help him to make it. Come to think about it, supposing one goes for a while without eating what would happen? His belly will start telling him it needs food or if it is water that one has done away with for a long time, one’s throat will tell him it thirsts. However, if one goes on a long fast, he will reach a point where he will lose appetite for food completely, and his belly will no longer desire it because the organs responsible for producing the appetite for food and processing it seems to have gone to sleep.  If one then keeps on this way without food, then it will result in death but for the system to begin to walk again, for it to be alive and healthy, one needs to begin to eat gradually, and mind you, some people have died for rushing meals after such a long fast. As he gradually but consistently begins to eat again, then the system starts getting awake from a long sleep and it begins to hunger gradually again for food.

            The spiritual appetite is like the natural one. If we walk in the light as the Father in the light, we have fellowship with one another, if we give diligent time to the study of the Word and prayers, if we practice the invisible presence of God, by returning inward, to the innermost being wherein He dwells, then, we will long for more of Him and will crave for Him over and again and the outward things of this lower temporal world will not break in the line. But if we stop fellowshipping with Him and stop attending diligently to His Word and worship, if we stop fellowshipping with the Spirit and withdraw to the lower outward life of daily routine, if we start seeing earthly things more than we attend to the heavenly One within us, then, our appetite for the presence and the Word begins to wane off and our spiritual life begins to dwindle gradually until there is no appetite for spiritual things anymore. This is how folks often get into all kinds of negative addictions until they get their conscience to the state where it becomes as though seared with a hot iron; when their desires for carnal things overtakes their desires for spiritual things and they persist in that state of darkness long enough until it becomes fastened to their soul as a stronghold that they return into over and again. But the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds (1 Cor.10:4).

This state of faint spiritual appetite is so terrible that it is highly unprofitable for us to be caught up within but everything begins with a choice. The Spirit of the Lord will constantly and gently deal with us to get back inward, but the things of this world could be so fastened to our senses that we will not even feel spiritual or have feelings for spiritual things at all, but thanks be to God that we do not have to depend on our feelings because if our natural impulses or feelings are spiritual, then of what necessity would faith be? Until we get back into the washing of water by the Word, we will not be able to rid our mind of those earthly viruses or filthiness that has clanged tenaciously unto it. It is the entrance of the Word that gives light because the Word is light and this light will shine so brightly to the burning off of all the lingering darkness in our soul if we will persist in it long enough (Psalm .119:130). Thanks to God that He can shake us to revitalization and bring us inward back to the deeper life again.

Have you ever felt like having those early appetites that you once had, when you first got saved again? It is possible in the presence! We must constantly chose to retreat inward, to get back into the place of hunger and thirst for spiritual things, thus the Scripture charged us to be constantly filled with the Spirit because we must come to drink again and again from the living water. In Acts 2:4, the apostles were filled with the Spirit and they were filled with the same Spirit again in Acts 4:31. We must constantly return to the Spirit and the Word of Love. There is such thing as keeping filled with the Spirit! The Ephesus Church was not a carnal Church, yet Paul charged them to be filled with the Spirit; this denotes been constantly filled with the Spirit, (Eph.5:18).

The inward life is a deeper life, for the laws of God is written within us and we cannot err as long as we follow the inward voice of the constraining love of our jealously loving Father, who will stop at nothing to ensure that nothing comes between us and Him. Constant thirst and hunger for God qualifies a man for life transforming encounters and divine transfiguration. There is always more with God! God’s love will never let you go!

“This book of the law shall NOT DEPART OUT OF THY MOUTH; but thou shalt MEDITATE THEREIN DAY AND NIGHT, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then THOU SHALT MAKE THY WAY PROSPEROUS, AND THEN THOU SHALT HAVE GOOD SUCCESS (Joshua 1:8).

The True Valentine

More than 2000 years ago, Jehovah the Love sent the Son of His Love to die for the world He loves so much. That was the first Valentine ever! It was this genuine example of love, shown by God in Christ that several disciples followed thereafter. And most of the first century believers gave their live as martyrs for the love of the One who first laid His live to show His Love. The human family was so rebellious, but in the midst of that rebellion, Jehovah the love took the greatest risk. He gave His only Son in sacrifice to redeem us from our rebellious nature. And now, we can love because of that love. Only love can give birth to love. Only love can make a miracle! Only love can change the rebellious into obedient. Among other martyrs who followed the love of Christ is the one or several Saint Valentine, who became a martyr or martyrs for the gospel of Christ.

Valentine day is celebrated in remembrance of the sacrificial love of those saints. Valentine is a celebration of love but it is sad that most of those who celebrate valentine today do not really understand what true love is. Many have thought that love is just a feeling you have for someone which could easily go away. But the love that gave birth to Valentine is not a mere weak feeling; it is a decision! It is a sacrificial love that made the lover to give up everything for the loved. This love moved the early disciples and many of them chose to give their live for the gospel of Jesus Christ. The saints who gave their live as martyrs loved not their lives unto death (Rev.12:11).  The Bible said that the world was not worthy of them because they loved and sacrificed overmuch. “They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth (Heb.11:37-38).

As we celebrate Valentine, let us never forget that the reason we can love is because God first loved us. We should not forget His love that changed the world and we should try as much as we can to do something this season that will tell His gospel of love to the world. Let us celebrate the love that has no ending, the love that never pass away, the love without deceit, the love that never gives up, the unconditional love of God in Christ. He never ask us to do anything to merit eternal life, He only ask us to believe in Him who has done everything. The measurement for true love is sacrifice!

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).


Prophetic Word For The Year 2012

Welcome to 2012 the year of the ascended life!

Welcome to the year of the glorious bride!

Welcome to the year of intimacy that brings the glory!

Welcome to the year of reality beyond religion!

The word of the Lord came unto me in hibernation in His holy Presence,

It came bubbling forth as rivers in my spirit and as an unquenchable fire within my bones.

His presence was so consuming that I could hardly bear yet I did not want to leave the midst of Him,

I was so captured away in His holy glory and there were angels all around us.

His love was a purifying fire to the consuming of my flesh and my heart was as though ripped open completely to His holy fire,

His radiant light illuminated my spirit’s eyes to clearly see that He is the One that dwells in unapproachable light.

Yet He bided me to come because He paved the way on Calvary and

He opened the veil by the piercing of His own body,

What a love He displayed through His sacrifice!

I approached the Lord and His flaming eyes beheld the darkness of my soul consumed by His holy fire,

I was overwhelmed completely by His presence and I was like a dead man before the Living One.

But His hand lifted me again unto my feet and He bided me to neither fear nor tremble,

And He said unto me with voice as the rushing of many waters…

“Welcome to the throne room…

This is where I want My precious bride to always be…READ MORE HERE

Christmas is the Greatest Love’s Invasion on Earth!

About 2011 years ago Divine Love invaded earth! Christmas is God’s boundless love in Christ invading the selfish world of humans! It is a celebration of the birth of the Love that brought redemption and restoration for humanity. It is in it that Jehovah the Love released all that He is to humanity in His Son. The Star that shun in Bethlehem 2011 years ago was noticeable because of love. The selfish human world saw the light of the Radiant Love descending from the celestial world above. He was the long awaited Love and the life of all existence was dependent upon Him. The Bible can be summed up in one line- God is Love! The name “God” means “the Self Existent One” or “the Supreme One”. It is the universal name of the Supreme Deity that owns all existence. The One who created all things but was created by none! It was difficult to really be able to describe in full what God was like in the Old Testament but when He came down in the New Testament, the world saw Him for the first time and it was Love that they saw. God is Compassion fully manifested in Jesus Christ! Those who put their faith in Christ also received the quality of God’s Spirit which is Love. It is shed abroad or poured forth into the center of their being or their human spirit which is sometimes called the heart. We know from the Scriptures that the greatest miracle of all times is this Supreme Love coming to take residence in the heart or spirit of human beings. The world has not recovered from the invasion of this Supernatural Love since the Progenitor of the Supreme Love race landed in Bethlehem over 2011 years ago.  Jesus brought the Love quality of God’s Spirit to make a new race of human spirits who will turn the world upside down with love (Acts 17:6)… READ MORE HERE

A Word from Jesus: “The Word of God is the Soul’s Injection”

God's Word is soul's injection
Injecting the Mind or Soul with the Word of God

On the ninth day in the month of March, the year been 2008, a Hand touched me very early in the morning while I was still in bed at exactly five o’clock.  I woke and looked up to see who it was and behold, it was the Lord standing by my bed. He didn’t look any different than He was in all the times that He had visited me, beginning from when I was five. Everything about Him can be summed up in one word; Love.  Jesus told me on that day that the Word of God is the soul’s injection. He was signifying to me by the Holy Spirit that the human soul is often sick with all kinds of carnal thoughts and infections. Injecting it constantly with God’s Word is the only way to wholeness. We cannot keep our thinking straight without the Word of God. Ephesians 5:26 speaks of the washing of water by the Word and Jesus said that we are clean by the Words that He speaks to us (John 15:3). And in John 17:17, Jesus asked the Father to sanctify us by His truth and He went further to say “Thy Word is truth”. The Bible in Romans 12:2 urges us not to be gradually changed to the image of this world but to be transformed or transfigured by the renewal of our mind or soul. That renewal is through the Word of God and it is the Word of God that is the still waters that restores our soul according to Psalm 23 and Ephesians 5:26.

The sickness of the soul comes from the infection of the dark thoughts and scenes that we often pick up from the media (TV, newspaper, radio, postal, movies and etc). They also generate from Satan’s suggestions into our minds or the wrong things that we hear people say around us. Now, that takes us to the reason why most of the battle we will face here on earth will be against thoughts in the mind…READ MORE HERE

A Special Prophetic Word For You!!!

Worshiping the Lord and ministering unto Him
His word came into my spirit and bubbles in prophecy
And this is what the Lord would now say unto you:

You that have been faced with challenges,
You that have been going through a lot of late
You that have prayed until faith seem weak
And victory seems as though it’s fully lost,
You that have battled continually for your family
And it seems as though the enemy is still at rage,
You that desires peace but have been in war,
To you that have tried to rise again and again
But the waters of life has been keeping down,
To you that financial challenge have been against,
To you that struggle with rebellious children
To you, whose loved ones are lost in the world
To you that suffers from diverse addictions
And have groaned in pains for day and nights
Wondering where the Helper of the saints is,
Questioning where the Holy Comforter is… READ MORE HERE

Satan, Get Out of My Garden!

            GENESIS 1:27-28

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

When God created the humankind in the beginning of creation, He created them in both the male and female form and named them the humankind. Now, God spoke the blessing over them and those blessings were not optional, they were compulsory. He commanded them to be fruitful, to multiply, to replenish the earth, to have dominion and to subdue it. The blessings that God pronounced over them was very important to their destiny, it was a series of prophetic blessings and commandments.

The last two words of the blessings however revealed something that was very remarkable to their destiny. God told them to subdue the earth and have dominion over the swimming fish, the flying birds and every living thing that moves upon the earth. Now, if you take a look at those two words (“dominion” and “subdue”) in the original text of the Hebrew language in which it was said, you will be amazed how it suggests that there was an enemy that would want to take the earth from them who must be subdued or conquered. The word translated as “subdue” in the original text also means to conquer or bring into subjection by force. God blessed the humankind with the ability to conquer the earth and bring the earth and the devil into subjection. If there would be no enemy, then there wouldn’t be anyone to be conquered or forcefully bring into subjection, isn’t it?

The Hebrew word that was rendered as “have dominion” in that passage also suggest the same thing; it means to tread down, or subjugate. It also means to prevail against, reign over or take control of.  So, the humankind was to do all that on the earth. God saw that the enemy was coming in his tricks in attempts to take the earth from the humankind and He blessed the humankind with the ability to defeat him and subdue or keep him underfoot forever… READ MORE HERE


The Treasure in the Temptress

In John Chapter four, Jesus the Wisdom of God and the perfection of love and vision stood by the well of Jacob, at the outskirt of the gentile village of Samaria. He was waiting for one little woman who was the key to an entire city. He stood waiting patiently for her, and the mystery was that when that woman showed up, she wasn’t a “Virgin Mary” but more or less a prostitute living with another woman’s husband after her fifth divorce. She was a temptress! How amazing is the visionary power of Divine Love, how He sees the significant in the insignificant and the potential in the unpromising. He helps them discover who they are by seeing in them what they and others are too blinded by weaknesses, circumstances and controversies to see in themselves.

There are mysteries that only love can see and one of   those mysteries is the treasure in the insignificant, impious and the most defiled. Jesus stood there for that woman in a very sunny afternoon, enduring the sun for the love of a woman so unloved by many. Who could have taught that the Savior would endure the scorching sun for the treasure in a temptress? READ MORE HERE

What is the God-kind of love like? The God-kind of love is full of kindness and is tenderhearted. Since God’s love is kind and tenderhearted, it is always ready to forgive. Ephesians 4:32 says, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Sometimes I think people interpret this verse by saying that we are to forgive people only when they are kind to us. But that’s not what the Bible says.

This scripture also doesn’t say, “Forgive one another when the offense doesn’t amount to much. But if people have done a lot against you, then it’s okay to not forgive them.” The verse doesn’t read that way, but too many times that is the way people practice it…READ MORE HERE
