I Love you

This is a love post. To my husband who God has used to help me heal of the unseen wounds I bore before we met.

Before we met, I had garnered the art of appearing strong while, in reality, I wept when alone.

I look back at the journey and thank God for you. There are not enough words to express how we really needed each other.

Our favorite song best describes it. It was not accident.

Operating upon Revelation

#keysofthekingdom #Launchingintothedeep #opendoors

♧Before Jesus said to Peter and the disciples, “unto you I give the keys of kingdom” He enquired on how they knew Him.

♧In our days, we may say they received a survey with two questions.

1.Who do MEN say that I the son of man I am?

2. Who do YOU say, Iam?

♧As you well know, they scored highly on the first question. They had ears on the ground they knew what people speculated Jesus is.

♧Whoever on the second question, it would have been so sad if what other people said is also what they said.

♧They walked, worked and practically lived with Jesus.  That proximity and access meant that they knew him.

♧However, to really know Him, who He really is,  Peter did not speculate,  rationalize or critically evaluate.  He received a  REVELATION!

♧Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.
Matthew 16:17 NIV

♧There is a knowing that is only received through Revelation.  Not flesh and blood,  nor looking at the outward appearance.

♧Like Peter may we open up to Revelation, act and speak with confidence because of the revealed Truth.

♧There are many who have missed the open doors,  because we made decisions based on what people say or what we know from observation. 

♧Samuel almost missed it when on assignment to anoint a king in Jesse’s house. However, he yielded and operated with Revelation.

♧But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7 NIV

♧Before you dismiss someone,  or act on your gathered intelligence,  Give room for Heaven intelligence.  Receive a Revelation that no flesh and blood can reveal.

PASS Through The Gates!


PASS Through The Gates!
♧No limitations nor hesitation when the season is here and the grace is available pass through the open doors.

Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations.
Isaiah 62:10 NIV

♧It is not just about changing locations or the environment. Understand the assignment, you have a work to do through the gates. There is no room for self or selfishness. It is about the people!
1. Prepare the way for others.
2. Build up the Highway
3. Remove Stones
4. Raise a banner for Nations.

♧ The fact that you struggled and waged warfare before this breakthrough does not mean the others behind have to pay the same price. Or entince you to get the tips on how you did it.

♧Freely you have received freely give.

As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
Matthew 10:7‭-‬8 NIV

♧ If the Lord chooses you as a pioneer to pass through the gates, then prepare the way for others, build a highway, remove the stones and raise a banner! Let as many as possible who are connected to you be able to pass through too.

♧The Lord open doors and gates for us. But the responsibility of going through and entering is on us.

I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
Revelation 3:8 NIV

♧Staying in the proximity of open doors and gates is not enough.
There is a call to trust wholeheartedly and push in obedience to His command to experience what’s beyond the open doors.

♧ Acknowledging our little strength or limitations is good, but what are you going to do about it? Excuses and complacency will get us nowhere.

Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.
Acts 3:2 NIV

♧Like the man at the gate called beautiful, many are ok with the assistance we get to the gate, but it’s time to stir up a desire to go through the gates.

♧We got a promise, we are not alone, the one who opens doors is holding our hand. ARISE! GO THROUGH! HIS HAND IS HOLDING YOU!

“This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
Isaiah 45:1 NIV
