Our Salvation Nearer Than When We First Believed

Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.(Romans 13:11) 


Salvation simply means to deliver from danger, destruction, sin, sickness or oppression. That is exactly what Jesus gave us when He died on our place in the cross. That salvation contains all that concerns our liberty from sickness, poverty, sin and all oppression.
 However, the salvation the Holy Spirit is writing in our anchor scripture today is about the final deliverance that we believers in Christ are hoping for. That time when the final enemy (death) will be destroyed, when their will no more be sorrow and weeping for the redeemed. It is that time when Jesus Christ will return in glory to take His faithful followers.
We are so close to this time of our final salvation. We ought to know the time but the challenge with this generation is that it is blind to the time. The fulfillment of the prophecies of the end time is the only clock we need to understand urgency of our time but many have refused to see.
God has used several ministers to bring this warning but like people of Sodom and people of Noah's time this Oracles have been ridiculed and despised, that in itself is a further validation: God's word is clear that in the last days people will not endure sound doctrines.
God is calling on us to wake up. It is time to anoint the eye with eye-salve so we do not keep wallowing in darkness. It is time prepare for Christ's return. It is time to watch and pray. God has commanded to warn this generation that His return is near.
The governments of the world do not have the answers and solutions to the many challenges of the end time. They can only speculate and try to bail out water from a drowning boat. Only in Christ is everlasting peace. Our peace in Christ comes from assurance of God's presence and a hope of our final salvation. Wake up and repent.

Dwell on The Positives

That some things seem to be lacking your life now is not the absence of them.   What the enemy wants to remind you are your failings, your rejections, dejection and things lacking in your life.  Because, he knows that as long as you dwell on the negatives, your outcome remains negative. But in this platform, we want to remind you of victories, of success, of abundant life, all in Christ.
You are what God says you are: blessed!  True blessing starts from knowing am truly blessed. No wonder 2Peter1:2 says, "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord!"  Knowledge in things of God is a multiplier of God's blessings.

Make Alliance With Righteous Causes

Scriptural Highlight: (2Kings 9:17) - "Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel, and he saw the company of Jehu as he came and said, 'I see a company.' And Joram said, 'Take a horseman and send to meet them and let them say, 'is it well'. So a man on horseback went to meet them and said, 'Thus says the king, 'is it peace?' And Jehu answered, 'what do you have to do with peace? Turn and ride behind me."
Our scriptural highlight for today showcases a scene of battle between righteousness and evil. Joram king of Israel belonged to the family of Ahab and Jezebel, people that have troubled Israel with their sorcery, covetousness and blood spills. And a word of prophecy from Elijah had gone out against this evil house saying, "Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will utterly sweep thee away and will cut off from Ahab every man-child...(1Kings 21:21). So, in effect, God located Jehu and anointed him to fight and fulfill His…

Men are made in pressure

Most of the precious things we use in life are produced by pressure.
Gold is refined under intense heat and pressure.
To get the juice from an orange, pressure is applied.
In the same way, certain heats are needed to produce men.
There is a  tendency to relax as long as no one is applying pressure on your life.
Some people will never have built houses if not that Landlord has pressured them.
Some will never do anything unless there is quick reward.

The law of motion states that a body continues at rest or uniform motion on a straight line unless external force is applied: so with many people in destiny.
Many people will never move forward unless nudged.
That's why God gave us words of inspiration and motivation.
No matter how down or battered a man maybe in destiny, there is something he'll hear and a new life will be infused again.
However, never wait for motivation. Great men in destiny are known to be self motivated.
It's better to learn through obedience than throug…
