GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 30

THE FAITH SERIES :1

WHATSOEVER IS NOT OF FAITH......

As promised with this capsule we will be starting the faith series and as always my intention is to stir you up. For clarification this is not about the gift of Faith (1Corinthians 12), this is more about the faith received at salvation and faith for every day living. I hate to make a distinction between the last 2 because I believe one is a progression of the other. The thrust of this blog is divine healing, but the application is general to every aspect of Christian life. Even though it's a series there is no way I will be able to communicate everything I know in a blog, remember God's pills are designed to be small and smooth enough to swallow , easily digestible to release the goodness, so strictly no heavy stuff, in fact we are going back to basics.

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭7‬ KJV)

2 Corinthians 5:7 says 'we walk by faith', Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38 all say 'the just shall live by faith', Romans 14:23 says whatsoever is not of faith is sin! (Many more ..). It would appear to me that faith is as important to a Christian as water to a fish, but why?


2 Corinthians 5:7 gives an insight, faith is the sense 'organ' of the spirit. Let me explain, the physical body has 5 sensory organs ( sight, touch, taste, smell and hearing). These five are designed to help the physical body express itself under the most favourable conditions. They give direction, protection from danger, even make you enjoy the good things in life - that is why they are called physical senses. But don't forget that man is a SPIRIT, lives in a body and has a soul. The real you is your spirit hence faith is the spiritual sense organ that real you live by. As the body never takes leave of the five physical senses, so your faith must remain active 24/7 that is why Habakkuk 2:4b says 'the just shall live by his faith'. The physical body cannot express itself without the 5 physical senses, just like the spirit cannot live to its full potential without faith.


There is a difference between living and existing . It is possible for the Just or a Christian to exist without faith ( in fact that is the case with a significant majority).Christians that live by their physical senses alone are called Carnal, that is ruled by the physical senses. however if you intend to LIVE and not just exist, that is thrive and be the best that God wants you to be , you can only do it by or through faith.


Let me paint you a picture, people with non functional physical sense (e.g. blind, deaf or dumb etc) are labelled 'disabled' because they are limited / hampered, and in the worse case scenario when more than one of the physical senses are severely affected we describe them as been in a vegetative state even though they are alive. It's the same way when you have a non functioning or you are not functioning in faith (without being too graphic I hope you are getting the picture).


By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (‭Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭2‬ KJV)


For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8 KJV)


Again, grace ( that is all that Christ made available through His atoning sacrifice ) is only accessible through faith. Divine health, deliverance from demonic oppression, prosperity/material wealth and forgiveness of sin can only be accessed through faith. These things are spiritual and you can only access them spiritually. That is why Ephesians 1:3 says 'we have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ '. Faith is the spiritual currency that brings them to the physical., because although we are spirits, we live in a physical body and world............. to be continued.


CONCLUSION:
DON'T JUST EXIST, LIVE BY FAITH.

GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 29

BREAKING GENERATIONAL CURSE (Part 3)

Recap
As promised in this capsule I will be showing you how to walk away from any generational curse. In the previous 2 capsules I have showed you that a curse is a word spoken with sole aim of causing spiritual damage and consequently psychological and physical manifestation. I showed that we have been translated from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light . This is a present and current reality, it has happened. This makes the operation of any curse in the life of a Christian 'illegal',

A logical and legitimate question is ' If all these are true, why am I still experiencing all these generational sickness and disease? I am glad you asked! (Refer to God's pill capsule 24,25,26) . The short answer is if you believe and start acting on these truths you will get the result promised! You cannot, I repeat you cannot put that responsibility on any other person apart from yourself.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. (‭ Isaiah‬ ‭54‬:‭17‬ , please read in context vs 15-17 KJV)

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV)

Isaiah 54:17, if properly understood is making reference to the Born again believer (Isaiah 53-55). It is pretty emphatic and absolute in its declaration. Any tongue that rise against you in judgement (aka curse), YOU shall condemn ( that is countermand or declare that they are not fit for purpose. That is what condemn means). Instead of doing this, we ask God or others to do it for us. No, God has already given you the authority and power, He expects you to use it (John 1:12, 1John 3:8, Acts 1:8, James 4:7, Matthew 16:19, Mark 11:22-24).

Curses are spoken words set into motion, they can be BROKEN or STOPPED in their operation by spoken words countermanding them, but it has to come from a believing heart, that is the whole thrust of Romans 10:10 above. Always remember that you have the power and authority, not based on your works, but by grace . Do this continually and relentlessly, don't back off , not for a second (Ephesians 6:13)

Without a doubt everyone of us at some point in time feel like backing off and turning tail, but you will notice that the armour of God described in Ephesians 6:14-17 does not make provision for your back, in fact you become more vulnerable if you turn around.

Let me end on a personal note. About 5 years ago, a well meaning Sister told me a dream she had concerning me. Apparently in that dream I made a boast in the Lord and this occultic group of people took umbrage and were determined to punish and possibly kill me. She wanted us to pray and fast together, in fact she went and told a few people she knew I respected, asking them to call me. She was shocked when I said there and then that there was no need. She wanted to know why? I responded with Isaiah 54:15-17 and walked away. She could not understand. That was 5 years ago!

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:13-14 KJV)

Christianity is simple and straight forward but religion has complicated things,. Am I saying its easy? Of course not! But as you begin to put it into practise you will see that we have made things unnecessarily difficulty.

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18 KJV)
CONCLUSION
IT IS NOT THE SIZE OF THE DOG IN THE FIGHT THAT MATTERS, IT IS THE SIZE OF THE FIGHT IN THE DOG

PS
We will start The Faith Series next, as usual things won't be dull.

GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 28

BREAKING GENERATIONAL CURSE (Part 2)

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭17‬ KJV)

How I wish I had the time and space to discuss the above scripture in depth. If you truly understand what this scripture is saying in context you will walk away free from any generational curse no matter how bad. The stumbling block with most Christians is that we pay mental accent to the word of God but it is not real to our heart. I will give a real example.

I once noticed certain pattern of behaviour from a 'mature' Christian , so I asked him about it. The answer was 'I have to be careful of what I eat'. I asked, why? He replied ' because of diabetes, it's in the family'!

I knew right there and then that he would end up having diabetes, because already he was beaten and have already accepted it . I was not surprised 6 months down the line when he was diagnosed with full blown Diabetes Mellitus . Instead of kicking diabetes out, he had accepted it .....'IT'S IN THE FAMILY'

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV)

You can pretend to onlookers , but you cannot deny what is in your heart. Job said 'For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.' (‭Job‬ ‭3‬:‭25‬ KJV)

You can pray, you can fast, they might even lay hands on you and anoint with a barrel of oil, except the reality takes root in your heart you will struggle to break free. That is why you see Christians go for 'deliverance' over and over. Paul called it 'having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof' 'ever learning, never coming to the knowledge of the truth. (2Timothy 3:5,7KJV)
Even if somebody helps you to break free, except this truth dawns in your heart like a day-star your freedom will be temporary and fleeting. (Matthew 12:43-45 KJV)

2 Corinthians 5:17 says

Therefore if any is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new (KJV)

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (NLT)

The question is , which family do you belong to, your old or the new? You cannot belong to the new and be afraid of the old vice versa. I made up my mind a long time ago that I am in Christ, that entitles me to all the privileges and definitely a curse whether generational or otherwise is not a privilege. (Ephesians 1:3, John 1:12 KJV)

CONCLUSION

IF SICKNESS OR DISEASE IS IN YOUR FAMILY, KICK IT OUT
Ps
In Part 3 I will show you how to deploy these truths and walk away from any generational curse!

GOD's PILL: CAPSULE 27

BREAKING GENERATIONAL CURSE

In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge (Jeremiah 31:29-30)

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:12-14)

Disclaimer
The subject of generational curse is such an emotive one that it has been exploited in various ways to keep the gullible under subjugation. Some Churches and even Denominations have been built around it. This ought not to be so, if only we would give the word of God the rightful place that it deserves.
Let me also recognise here that everything that I will be teaching against, I have at sometime believed, so my intention is purely to shed light .Again because there is so much misconception in this area I might need 2 capsules to cure this ailment.

A curse is a negative utterance with the sole aim of causing harm, adversity or misfortune. As indicated from the topic we are discussing this could manifest through generations (however we are remaining on the subject of sickness and disease). The opposite of a curse is blessing, so by definition a blessing is a spoken favour that manifest in good fortune. Both i.e. Curse and Blessing are spiritual, they cannot be seen, what we see is the manifestation.

With this been said, it is eminently possible to break and destroy the effectiveness of a curse and this is what I will like to explore.
Curses are pronounced or set into motion by words , words can be used to stop them.

See Jeremiah 31:29-30, This is a prophetic scripture about the new covenant saint (Jeremiah 31 if read in context will show this).When we become born again we are translated from the kingdom of darkness where curse hold sway into the kingdom of light where operation of a curse becomes illegal so to say. Knowing this, is central to stopping the destructive effect of curse (2 Cor 5:17-21, Romans 8:2). See Colossians 1:12-14, we have been 'delivered' from the power of darkness (past tense), 'translated' into the kingdom of His dear Son (past tense). It is not in the future, it is right now!!

Until this become a reality that you fully grasp, that you know in your 'knower', you will be subject to all sorts of spiritual gimmickry and crudity that will hold you in slavery to one person or the other, looking for solution that is already available to you (Galatians 3:29, 4:1-7). I have seen people move from slavery of a curse to the slavery of their denomination just because they are confused making themselves open to exploitation (Galatians 5:1). The truth is, if you know how, you can break free from any curse and reverse the effect.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, (Ephesians 1:3)

If you are born again, the above scripture is already in operation in your life, although you might be ignorant of this, hence you are not enjoying the benefits. Even in the old covenant when a blessing is activated it can stop or prevent any curse.(Number 23:8,19-20,23) and I say what we have in Christ is far great than this (Matthew 11:11).

CONCLUSION
BREAK THE CURSE AND OPERATE UNDER GENERATIONAL BLESSING

PS
In capsule 28 we would see how to break the curse and enjoy the blessing. Don't be fooled your deliverance is in your own hands, not any other person's

GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 26


FEAR, SIN AND IGNORANCE (Tackling the terrible TRIPLET)
 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17 KJV)

We would be looking at the third of the terrible triplet in this capsule, ignorance. In my estimation this is the most dangerous of the three, in fact if you can deal with this the other two will fall in line.

It is a great deception if you think that there is substitute for knowledge . For anything to be meaningful, effective and productive it must be based on knowledge, not just knowledge but the right knowledge. Nature abhors vacuum, if you don't have the right knowledge you will operate on sentiments or superstition or tradition (Mark 7:13)

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)

Unfortunately there is no shortcut , except you find out for yourself you will end up parroting others. Your final authority must be the word of God. At times we try to add weight to what we believe by attaching the name of a respected man or woman of God. The problem with this is that you are trying to live on somebody else's revelation, it won't sustain you. That is the problem the second type of soil in Matthew 13 and Mark 4 had.

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:31,32 KJV)

The scripture above is often quoted, but see what it says. Its the truth that 'you know' that will make you free, not the one that Sister or Brother so and so validates. The Greek word translated 'know' is 'ginosko' which refers to intimate personal knowledge of something. This can only happen when you have meditated on it such that it has become a personal, practical concept. Am I saying we can't learn from others? Definitely no, in fact we should!

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so (Acts 17:11 KJV)

The Christians in Berea were described as noble because despite the fact that they were receptive to Apostle Paul, the word of God was their final authority. They meditated on these truths until they became theirs. When you have an intimate knowledge of 'by His stripes you were healed' then disease and sickness would have met more than their match (1Timothy 4:15,16 KJV)

CONCLUSION

IT'S ONLY THE TRUTH THAT 'YOU KNOW' THAT CAN MAKE YOU FREE!! DON'T BE A PARROT


PS - In capsule 27, we will discuss how to break generational curse. I'm excited, I can't wait, don't miss it!!!
