LAYING UP TREASURES IN HEAVEN…2017

Hello Beloved in Christ,

2016 is rolling out soonest to give way to a new earthly season, 2017. With such impression on my heart, I’d to share what the LORD’s been laying on my heart most recently to the Body of Christ.
The theme of #revival has been greatly resounded year after year…each year is declared the set time of such mighty move of God. Many words…little or no manifestation. As I fellowshipped with the LORD early hours of this day, He placed a strong chastening word on my heart from Matthew 6:19-21:
“19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

We’ve read those sacred verses repeatedly in our gatherings, I guess. However, if the spirit of those words entered us our perspective of God will certainly change.
Let’s dig down to the reason we cry out for revival…let’s check the very intents of our heart by the eye of the Holy Spirit. Are we crying out to God for revival…for the anointing…for financial breakthrough for selfish/carnal reasons? Let’s be truthful to ourselves, for it will define how the coming year shall be for us. We have cried out to the LORD long enough for godly requests, yet with unholy motives! Hence, God cannot move over such prayers. What is truly our heartbeat for God sending the spirit of revival into our nations? That we will be “mini-gods”, sought after by men? That we would be at the centre of attention? If these and more have been our reasons, let me announce to us Church that we have gallantly failed! Yes, for if ever God would answer those carnal requests the revival that will be birthed won’t survive the test of time, as the fore-bearers have earth-bound motives…laying up treasures on earth, where rust and moth can corrupt and thieves can breakthrough and steal! Yes, too carnally-driven, that our reasons are not in sync with the heartbeat of the Father.

If we remain earth-bound and carnally-minded in our approach to the kingdom of God, we cannot set our gaze on the things above. We result “numb” to the very reality that hereafter lies heaven and hell. Therefore, our work in the Kingdom of God is weak and ineffective. The reason we should cry out for revival is because the eternal judgement of God is fast approaching and God doesn’t want mankind to partake of the eternal suffering prepared for the devil and his demons. That is why the Gospel should be preached, with signs and wonders following: awakening eternity in the heart of men.

We’ve chased enough spiritual vanities, let’s now set our gaze on Jesus Christ and lay up treasures in heaven…let’s set our affection on the kingdom of God and His righteousness. That’s the only guarantee that our work rendered here on earth would pass the trying fire of God when we shall stand before His throne on that day. Let the reason for which we ask for revival be because we recognise the love of God for mankind to deliver him from eternal damnation and separation, both on earth and hereafter. That is the kind of revival that draws men to the point of absolute surrender and consecration unto holiness. Such revival awakens men to the person of God. Such revival is sustained and enabled by the Holy Spirit, not feelings/emotions!

10169442_763947480290636_8786985241526666050_n
Beloved, as 2016 comes to a close, let’s check our motives in our service in the kingdom of God. Once we get that right, the power of God will break loose in the nations of the earth. Let’s lay treasures in heaven. The LORD help us. Shalom!

Signed,

Minister Mirella

The Heart of a Yearning Deborah: Revival

 

 

Greetings in Christ to You!

Earliest hours of the dawn, typing this piece. Why the “night watch”? My heart has been actively brooding over a serious matter! Yes, I don’t know how serious it may be to you; however – to me -it is the most meaningful thing in this life: REVIVAL.

I know, we were born and/or raised in the Western world…legally established and can rightfully partake of every privilege accrued to our European citizenship. Yet, we are in a time where the move of God is most needed in the European continent. A terrible spiritual coldness is spreading all over the face of Europe. Yes, in my heart I perceive the voice of God calling out onto US! I see Him shaking the tides of our hearts, to quicken us to His very direction… to yearn for Him as never before. I know, we are baptized in the Holy Ghost…speaking in tongues. I know, we believe what God says. I know, we have a soft spot for God in our heart. I know, I know and I know! Yet, all these attributes cannot suffice us to subvert the quickly expanding contagious coldness in Europe. It takes divine and refined fire to take the land. Truly, the earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and all that dwell therein. However, God is seriously seeking for a messenger to send that will announce His person and take the nations for Him! Furthermore, to be a messenger, you surely need to be SENT…bearing a MESSAGE.

Oh, the message! The message of the Gospel! The message of Salvation, accompanied with miracles, signs and wonders.

This message cannot be delivered with lukewarm Christianity, but a living faith generated by the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember, Jesus Christ didn’t begin His earthly ministry with merely the baptism of the Holy Spirit. No, being full of the Holy Ghost, He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness – wherein He fasted, prayed, overcame temptations and was ministered unto by angels – and then emerged thereof in the POWER OF THE SPIRIT!

Dear Brother…dear Sister, that is what we need to take a spiritual legal hold of Europe. We have spoken enough…printed more than enough flyers…announced programmes, etc. It is the set time for God to announce Himself through us. It is written,the people shall be WILLING in the day of His power!

Let that Day be T-O-day. Do you want to partake of this spiritual legacy? Let’s come together and call upon the LORD of hosts. I’d like to initiate a prayer chain (made up of believers all over the European Economic Area preferably), to come together to call upon the name of the LORD via Skype. Kindly inbox me with your Skype details, and I will surely get back to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shalom,

Minister Mirella

YOUR “INTERIM” ROLE AS A KINGDOM SINGLE LADY!

Four years ago, I wrote this article and I still find it insightful! Presently, I am blissfully married for nearly two years, with a handsome growing baby boy. God bless you as you take in the essential from the following piece.

Greetings in Christ dear and beloved Daughter of Zion!

Well, today I’ll like to speak quite briefly about being around Daddy God’s Kingdom business as a single lady, before you say ‘yes, I do’. 

Firstly, it’s important to understand that you won’t begin your destiny after you get married; you commence it NOW! Thus, you’ve got to discover the reason why Daddy God created you and BEGIN doing it to bring delight unto Daddy God. 

Few months ago, the LORD spoke to me regarding marriage; He said: ‘’Don’t venture into marriage without discovering your reason of creation and begin carrying it out. Your destiny isn’t really wrapped in your marriage for it’s just part of your journey here on earth. Seek firstly why I created you…the ministry I’ve called you into and start doing it.‘ Unfortunately, many single young women in the LORD don’t see it this way; some are deceived to believe that they will be ‘complete’ (that’s start their destinies)once they get married(please, don’t get twisted by such a lie). As a single lady, it’s so pertinent that you give yourself wholly to the advancement of the Kingdom of Daddy God. Discover the ‘why’ for which you were created for there’s a specific Plan Daddy God has for you. Hence, FIND IT OUT AND GET DOWN TO DADDY’S BUSINESS!

As I meditated within me, a Truth dawned upon my heart concerning Proverbs 18:22(KJV); it says:

‘Whoso findeth a wife FINDETH a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.’

Wow! The Spirit of the LORD caused me to understand something that I’ll NOW explain.

As said previously: DISCOVER the reason of your Creation and start DOING it! Why? Because once you KNOW what Daddy God created you to DO, and BEGIN…it’s therein that you shall be FOUND by your new Adam! Isn’t that blissful? Yes, for the word ‘find’ means ‘to come upon by searching or effort ‘. This search occurs mainly ‘unconsciously’, as long as the man abides in the will of Daddy God(that’s being about Daddy God’s business…walking in his destiny in Christ and walking according to Daddy God’s timing), Daddy God will OPEN his eyes to know that you

image

are his and he is yours: thus, he FINDS you, the bone of his bones and the flesh of his flesh, the woman with whom he will accomplish Daddy’s will here on earth. Consequently, such marriage will provoke Daddy’s favour upon all your home. 

Thus, my dear Lady, don’t make the mistake of believing that you’ll know ‘after’, for NOW is the Time… the time to know Daddy God deeply and walk in your divine destiny. This is the Time to grow in the LORD, even in your fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Develop your character and learn to be a wise, industrious and hard-working woman. 
Proverbs 31:10 says,
‘A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.’
Furthermore, Proverbs 12:4 says:
‘A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.’

  My dear Lady, be about Daddy’s business[that is, be at the right Place]: launch into your glorious destiny in Christ – ! For therein your Man shall FIND you and he will know, void of doubt, that you’re the Woman fashioned for him. He will see the Woman that shares the Vision placed within him by Daddy God, a help-meet for him(Genesis 2:18) .

So, herein I have expressed the Way to be “FOUND” by the man for you; it’s that simple and unique! Daddy God so loves us that He reveals unto us His secrets so that we may walk upon the high and prosperous places in every area of our lives, even our marriages. 

Daddy God bless you dear Daughter of Zion as you act upon this godly advice.

With Love,

Minister Mirella

“YOU CAN STILL PREVAIL!”

Let’s read: I Samuel 17:40, 45-51 declares,

“40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.

48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.”

Spiritual battles can only be won by the help of God!

When the root of an issue is revealed to you of the Lord and the specific weapons are delivered into your hands: you receive the emblem of the authority of the LORD!

As seen in the biblical passage above, specifically verse 40, David chose five smooth stones by the brook, which bore the saving strength of the LORD, that killed Goliath! That’s the secret of victory: the spiritual significance of the word “chose” means, specific…definite…and accurate weapons of warfare were taken to confront Goliath!

Secondly, we need to develop a living relationship with God(that is, hearing ears and an obedient & ready heart). When we get to a junction in life, it’s pertinent to seek the root of every setback! Lo, God isn’t a free ‘take-away’ centre: wherein we come to grab what we want and snap away – in the place of prayer! Some answers to prayers are steps that need divine instruction unto us to handle: for example, Joshua’s defeat at Aia due to Achan’s sinful act, and the three-year doom of Israel during David’s reign as a result of his predecessor’s breach of covenant with the Jebusites.

God, other times, directs us with divine weapons that target and defeat that particular obstacle! How important it is to know God truely…those vague prayers would come to an halt! Knowing God directs our feet upon the right path to take. Ignorance of God sets our lives on the course to the pit(also due,atimes, to sinful habits in our lives)and God remains silent: meaning God can’t truly intervene… He can’t exercise the word of His power in that situation troubling you. Thus, ask Him for mercy, that He may wash and sanctify you wholly to Himself; then, ask Him to reveal the root of the particular problem confronting you. Surely, He will reveal such to you and instruct you upon the path of divine victory: David declared ,”For by Thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall[…]He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms”(Psalm 18:29,34). That is the saving strength of God to those that fear Him!

Prayer points:

  1. Father, have mercy on me: wash me in the blood of the Lamb and sanctify me wholly to You.
  2. Father, cleanse me from all form and nature of unrighteousness by the precious blood of Jesus.

  3. LORD God, reveal unto me the root of every mountain challenging me in the name of Jesus. LORD God, reveal unto me the weapons of warfare that You have in store to defeat this particular mountain in my life( name it – as revealed unto you by the LORD) in the name of Jesus.

  4. LORD God, teach my hands to war; set my feet upon the path of victory over every battle of life in the name of Jesus.

  5. LORD God, thank You for hearkening unto the voice of my supplications this day in the name of Jesus.

[Pray upon these lines till God reveals and directs you]

Amen, amen and amen! Keep seeking the face of God and He shall be surely be found of you in His tender mercies.

I pray for you this day: may the LORD hear you from Zion, may His face shine upon you in the name of Jesus, amen! Alleluia!

~ Finally, meditate upon Psalm 18.

To be continued…

God bless you; shalom!

THE REAL DEFINITION OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD

It’s time to alight from those heightened unfounded revelations and return to basics, people of God. In the innermost chambers of your heart, you so know that those mere confessions aren’t changing a comma of your present state…thus, it’s time to reconsider and be repositioned.

The greatest undoing of believers is living in sin(which is, holiness in their sight but false in God’s eyes) and concomitantly expecting the best from the LORD. What a mentality! The kingdom of God is founded on clear and unwavering eternal principles and only those that align unto such shall eat the good thereof.

Proverbs 16:6 says, ” by MERCY and TRUTH iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil”. How clearer can His Word be…

People of God, the fear of God brings genuine repentance; and genuine repentance means to depart from evil. Genuine repentance comes by, and is as a result of, mercy and truth. Isn’t written, ” let’s therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain MERCY, and find GRACE to help in time of need”? What does that mean?

Genuine repentance and subsequent uprightness is birthed by mercy and grace: mercy forgives and grace gives truth, to help you walk before the LORD(that is, to be separated unto the LORD). John 1:17b says,”…grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”. Praise God. Jesus said, praying unto the Father before His death, “SANCTIFY them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word” (John 17:17-20).

Thus, grace is received through the Word, which is the truth: “If ye continue in my word, Jesus speaking, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32). However, you have to continue in the Word, before you can experience the freedom in Christ.

So, drop those man-made definitions of grace for they can’t connect you indeed with the Giver of grace! The law doesn’t set free, only the Truth can! The truth is greater than the law(for the Truth made the law!) because it endues a man with divine power to do even beyond the marked and discrete commandments, for Jesus said,” think not that I am become to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”(Matthew 5:17-18). Romans 8:3 declares, “for what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be FULFILLED in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.

Thus, the Truth is [in] the Word: righteousness is fulfilled in us by the price paid by Jesus Christ for mankind(that is, the condemnation of sin in the flesh for our sake), even unto as many as receive Him and walk in the Spirit(and according to His Word) – see John 1:12. Seek the truth by the Spirit and ye shall find it(see Proverbs 20:27).

Beloved, it’s written, ” wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word”; “Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:9,11).

…and Jesus said, ” I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, except by me”.

Further reading: Proverbs 8.

ARE YOU WILL TO SACRIFICE YOUR LONG-AWAITED ISAAC?

HELLO DEAR BLOGGERS,

BLISSFUL NEW YEAR. MAY IT BE SADDLED WITH THE REALITY,  REVELATION AND POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD IN AND THRU US, AMEN.

 It is easy to promise God so and so, but when the promise lands into our possession, it begins to occupy such priority in our heart(sometimes!). However the case may be, God can ask you to sacrifice that long-awaited Isaac to Him. Lemme concentrate on a very known aspect: financial breakthrough.

 Initially, it is easier for you to sow the little you have, but when an enormous sum or contract hits your account, what shall ye do? People, at this stage, find it hard to give to God. Listen: if you won’t give to the LORD at His commandment, know that carnality and greed are crept into you. For God to confirm His promise unto you as an oath and – ultimately, an eternal covenant – you must be willing to sacrifice your given Isaac; that which fills your heart with such laughter, you should be openhanded about it to God-wards for He is the Author of such!

 Beloved in Christ, don’t hold tightly to any ephemeral paraphernalia, property or resource. The truth of walking with God is that the closer you desire to draw and be with Him, the eternally farther you must be cleaved from the world and its lusts. In fact, He will personally set the tests to proof your desire for Him and Him alone. God seems to rarely make a covenant with His people – in this age – due to their high affinity with and attachment to ephemeral lusts and ambitions in their heart and consequent pursuit.

 The fact that one blissful door stormed opened before you doesn’t mean that you will reside therein forever. The life in Christ is from glory to glory. So, God has planned and prepared further doors ahead for you. For every door God unlocks, there are things that must be locked behind in your life for further doors to open before you. Amen?

  Every test is to proof that God is our all in all. It takes a heart that holds nothing back from God, to provoke an eternal covenant unto such a man:

Genesis 22:15 -18 says,”15  And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,

 16  And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

 17  That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

 18  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”;

Psalm 105:7-11 says, ” 7  He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

 8  He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.

 9  Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

 10  And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

 11  Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance”. Shalom!

Part 1

I am not a trained musician. If I touch a piano, a guitar, or even drums, the most I can do is help a real musician move them to his car, or to the platform. I have always wanted to play an instrument, but never had the drive and discipline. Singing on the other hand… is even worse. The only time I sing is when I worship, and even that sometimes is hard to stand. Despite not ever being able to play an instrument, and not being the best singer, the Lord has really given me a heart for minstrels. To see musicians make the transition into the intimate quarters of our God and given a name, a grace and an assignment is something I see as an honor and a privilege. I truly believe that we are living in significant times. We are living in times where the Church…

ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT MARRIAGE… THRU THE SIGHT OF THE FATHER

Blessings to all my beloved Readers, forgive me for my inconsistency. Well, I am back by the strength of the Lord. Here is today’s concept, even as follows…

…Question: “Is there a specific person that God has designed for you to marry…

…Or is it just all about affinity between two persons?”

ANSWER: Greetings in Christ, I’d to convey God’s heart regarding this popular quest on the heart of most believers.I will try to be brief and, at the same time, concise.
We need to look at all things from God’s perspective, for that will give us a new vista of how things should be done, rather than how we “think” things should be done.
In the context of marriage, just like it equally concerns all other spheres of life, what really counts is God’s divine agenda. Amen? Now, in the light of this, this should make us see marriage from the eyes of the Father.
You see, everything was created for the pleasure of our heavenly King. Before the foundations of the world, God had already designated His eternal plan for mankind(please underline the word “eternal”). That plan of God is unbendable and unchangeable, and – at the same time – it doesn’t depend invariably on a particular man. Come rain, come sunshine, God’s divine plan must be made express! May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened to understand this.
God’s will is permanent and eternal, and yet not dependent on a particular person! Bringing this into marriage, it takes up this shape: of course God has fashioned someone in particular for you, however if the other party refuses to adhere to God’s divine counsel, God won’t force such one. Why? God doesn’t depend on a particular person to fulfil His eternal agenda.
When Saul disobeyed God, David was found; when Elijah thought he had accomplished the maximum and wanted to die as a result of fear, God commanded him to anoint Elisha in his stead; when Moses missed it at the very end, God appointed Joshua as the leader of the people of Israel. So, this makes us see that notwithstanding man’s disobedience and ego, God’s agenda MUST be advanced on earth, as it is in heaven.
Marriage itself isn’t for mere companionship and procreation,it is a piece of God’s divine plan put into display so to foster His divine purpose for mankind. Yes, that is why I believe firmly that every marriage must hinge on a divine plan. If two persons have no basis of agreement as regarding the primary goal and vision for getting married, there aren’t ready to settle down.
At the very end of the day, what counts is the eternal fruit we produced during our pilgrimage upon the earth. Amen? Every sphere of your life must rotate around God’s divine agenda for you. If you fail to sow the right seeds, you will reap nothing in eternity. Every facet of your life is a seed that must be sown into the soil of eternity, so to have stature in this life and in the life to come.
Pardon me for the digression. Getting back to our question. Now, that is why it is so important that a man/a woman lives submitted to the will of God for him/her. Don’t think of yourself as too special, and so God can’t do at least of you. No! He can, if you are disobedient to His will. Thus, humble yourself and receive His precious plan for you, that finds roots in His eternal agenda: the mystery of Christ and the Church.
My advice: remain submitted to the Lordship of the Holy Spirit and see Him lead you upon God’s perfect will for you.

~ “I pray that you be submitted to the Holy Spirit indeed, so that God’s will shall find expression in you during your pilgrimage upon the earth in Jesus’ name, amen. Love you all!”
