Victory Over Sin; Abiding In The Sabbath

I am giving out this book of mine for free, I feel it is something very needed in the body of Christ, and it will be such a blessing to many who care a lot about there relationship with God and walking with Him with a clear conscience. Below is the book description and what follows is the link to download it.

Book Description
The most effective way to preach the gospel is to live it out, to become a living testimony of what Christ offers. He died to put away sin, he sets us free from sin, and then the Scripture tells us that, “This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” (1John 5:4). Our faith (Christianity) is the victory that overcomes all, and our lives are a living testimony of that victory. Are you a Christian and yet you can’t find this victory in your life, you find yourself struggling with sin and always fall flat on your face? Probably you have listened to several messages and read many books but it is not really helping, you find yourself going back and forth in your relationship with God all because of this issue of sin. The book was put together to give you a practical guide on walking in that victory that Christ won for us. You don’t need to get another victory, the battle has ended and victory has been won for you. You only need to walk and stand in the victory that Christ has won for us, yes he has given us rest from the struggle with sin, get this book and learn to come into that rest.

The Forgotten Land Of Sabbath

The holiness which we are to express is supposed to spring forth from the finished work of Christ, it starts from the place of rest, the Sabbath. Just as the Old Testament people lived and practice the life of the Old Testament in the Promised Land, the New Covenant people ought to exist and practice the life of the New Covenant in the Sabbath.

"So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality." (Col 2:6-7).
“If that had been necessary, Christ would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But now, once for all time, he has appeared at the end of the age to remove sin by his own death as a sacrifice.” (Heb 9:26).
“And you know that Jesus came to take away our sins, and there is no sin in him. Anyone who continues to live in him will not sin.” (1John 3:5-6).

Christ is the reality of the Sabbath; his finished work is the Sabbath. Jesus came to give us rest from the struggle with sin; he won victory over sin, removed sin once and for all, and gave us rest. In Christ there is no sin, it is not possible to sin in Christ, and all those who abide in him enjoy rest from the struggle with sin. All that religious people have ever known is the struggle with sin; they are always struggling to do the right thing, struggling to obey the law and not commit sin, and it is how they know to live. These people never know rest, it is alien to them. Sin to them is this very big thing that you have to keep struggling with; they simply cannot conceive the idea of rest from the struggle with sin. This Sabbath is what Jesus came to give, through his death and resurrection he established the Land of Sabbath and called us to dwell in this land.

"And who was it who rebelled against God, even though they heard his voice? Wasn’t it the people Moses led out of Egypt? And who made God angry for forty years? Wasn’t it the people who sinned, whose corpses lay in the wilderness? And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter his rest? Wasn’t it the people who disobeyed him? So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest... So let us labor to enter that rest. But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall." (Heb 3:16-19;4:10).

Although in the spirit we are already in this Sabbath yet we must labor to experience it in the flesh and in our everyday life. Unbelief and laziness are the things that will prevent us from entering into the Land of Sabbath. Just as the Israelites saw how huge the men of the land of Canaan were and they began to doubt if God’s word is true when He said He would give them the land, so also have many Christians look at sin and it stronghold, and then they begin to doubt if God actually knows what he is saying when He said Jesus died to set us free from sin and now the sons of God cannot sin (John 3:19).

Yes, we doubt if it is possible to live above sin, to come to a place where you are finally resting from the struggle with sin. This doubt has made them settle in the wilderness, refusing to press into the land of Sabbath. Many have died in the wilderness without ever experiencing rest from the struggle with sin, they never knew Sabbath. In fact this Sabbath has become alien to us because most of us have chosen to remain in the wilderness; we have lived in the wilderness for so long that we have forgotten of the existence of Sabbath.

We have chosen to dwell in unbelief and we continue to spread this unbelief, teaching it to our children. Now, generation after generation do not know Sabbath, it has become a forgotten city, a myth. Yes, when we talk about this land we speak of it has a myth, nobody truly believe it. It sound goods to the ear, but our logic tells us it is not possible, it is nothing but a myth. We see these scriptures in the bible, and we nod our heads in agreement to it, but we do not believe it, we have refuse to believe it, it’s just doesn’t make sense to us, the Land of Sabbath has become forgotten, it is nothing but a myth.

Christ; The Christian Spirituality

My book is currently published on Amazon, and you can get the kindle book for free from now till 11th of this month. Below is the book description and Amazon link.

In the dream of king Nebuchadnezzar about the kingdom of men and that of God, it was the rock cut not by the hands of man that crushed everything that is of man and established God’s kingdom on earth. It is only that which has not be defiled by the hand of the carnal man that would bring down God’s Kingdom and fulfill His will. We need a Christianity free from the carnal man, free from every form of carnality; a Christianity that is utterly spiritual, utterly Christ. This book shine light on every hiding place of the carnal man in our midst; every dark corner inhabiting this unwanted resident, exposing this ugly man and demonstrating what ought to be, a spirituality that is utterly Christ.

Oh, there are so much dark corners hiding this man, allowing the ugly man to breed and defy everything, spreading corruption and perversion in its many forms. He must be exposed, we cannot continue to have him in our midst, we need light that will expose and drive him out. Glory to God, for He has been giving us much light in these last days, and this book tries to bring all these things together and concentrating the light that God has been giving on this ugly man, that he might be dealt with once and for all.

The Emphasis Is Christ

The emphasis is on what is being expressed. Once you step into Christianity you are to die to everything and live only by Christ. So what is being expressed, is it Christ or is it yourself? Well, you can say you are expressing righteousness, but is that righteousness Christ, or are you just expressing your own concept of righteousness. You see, we get so caught up preaching concepts, "you must be righteous, you must be holy, you must be humble..." but the truth is that we are only after our own worldview, our own self. We preach what we think humility is, and we want people to express that.

No, God would not have that, Christ is the only acceptable sacrifice; you either present Christ to Him or go home. God wants to see Christ expressed and nothing else. If you won't give Him Christ then there is no need of you being a Christian. This Christ can be expressed in many ways, but what matters is that he is the one being expressed. God doesn't care, all He wants to see is Christ being expressed; the God who is spirit manifesting in the flesh.

You do not act out Christ, you manifest him. What some Christians try to do is look at the Bible, look at Jesus and try to act him out. No, that is not expressing Christ, that is acting. We are to live not act, live by the Life (Christ).  Let Jesus himself be the one pouring out from the spirit into your flesh, finding expression in this mortal body. Let him manifest himself, let him walk the earth through you. All that God desire is to find expression through this flesh.

Being Led By The Godhead (Part 2); The Spirit Of Wisdom

Now, because God gives us the opportunity to choose from the options within the Life, wisdom is needed. Although all these options are within the Life they are not void of difficulties. Sometimes, rather than keep us from the fire God chooses to walk with us in the fire. However, we can go for the less difficult or stressful option, and wisdom is required to know which of the option is less filled with hardship and would save you a lot of stress. The Father wants us to need wisdom, to see our need for it and press in to develop it. His desire is to train wise sons that are capable of making wise decisions. All these are the reason why sometimes God would not answer our prayers and tell us what to do, he wants you to depend on his seed in you and he wants you to develop wisdom.

Most times, even as we make decisions within the Life our flesh still influences it. We usually end up choosing the one that is more pleasing to the flesh, the wisest option to choose are usually the ones that are harder on our flesh. The wisest option would save us a lot of stress in our lives and in our walk with God, but it will require a lot of dying to self. Remember Jesus when he was about to go to the cross, he kept asking the Father if there was any other way. But this way was not just the wisest way but the only way as far as the Father is concerned, if there was any other way Jesus would have gone for it. That is often how we behave, facing the cross and dying to self is very hard so we look for another way, but the way of wisdom is the cross.

“ However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God [c]ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” (1Cor 2:6-8).
“God's purpose is now to show the rulers and powers in the heavens the riches of his wisdom through the church” (Eph 3:10).

Through the Cross and its result (the Church), God hope to demonstrate the greatness and the riches of his wisdom; his plan is to demonstrate his highest wisdom, and that is what the cross is, it is the wisest of the wisest way. This is why the Father insisted that it must be by the cross, any other way would be less wise, and God doesn’t want anything less than an awe-stricken demonstration of the riches of his wisdom. The wisest way is always the way of the cross, that is how the wisdom of God is, and if we are to truly walk in God’s kind of wisdom then we must die to self.

We must always be ready to face the cross as many times as it is presented to us. Christ is the wisdom of God in us, and we have the Spirit of wisdom, by the Spirit of wisdom we would know which is the wisest choice, but knowing the wisest choice and choosing it are two different things. If you are one who is always ready to face the cross you will always make the wisest choice and you will develop God kind of wisdom. The more you choose wisdom, the more you will grow in wisdom.

Being Led By The Godhead (Part 1)

The Holy Spirit is the moving Spirit charge with the responsibility of bringing to manifestation the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan. Christ is the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan, we are member (part or portion) of Christ, and therefore each one of us is an embodiment of a part or portion in the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan. So everything that the Holy Spirit is doing in each and every one of us lives is to bring to manifestation that portion that we are in God’s eternal plan. Every workings, every manifestation, every emphasis of the Holy Spirit in our lives, whether on moral issues, on theological issues, on the supernatural, on experiences, and even down to the emotions of our hearts (the Holy Spirit can cause you to hate or like something, or even become passionate for it or grieve over it), are all meant to bring us to the fulfillment of our ‘calling’. I added quotation mark on the word calling because it means different things to different people, but here we are only using it to mean the portion of the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan that we are in Christ.

In Christ each one of us is an embodiment of a portion of the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan, and as we grow in Christ, we grow into that portion that we are, we become the manifestation of the fulfillment of that portion. This is why the Holy Spirit is very concern about our growth in Christ, for our maturity in Christ will lead to the manifestation of the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan. Yes, our maturity in Christ leads to the fulfillment of the work of the Holy Spirit in this age. I am stating all of this so that you might understand that everything that the Holy Spirit is doing in you, it is both to make you mature in Christ and to bring you to the fulfillment of your purpose and your calling in life. So by examining the things that the Holy Spirit is doing in your life you can begin to have an understanding of God’s plan for your life. God will not explain everything to you, but by gathering what he has said, and what the Holy Spirit is doing in your life, you can paint a picture of what you are being led into.

Through his workings in our lives the Holy Spirit would lead us into God’s plan for our lives, and by yielding to the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives we are following into God’s plan. The Father lead us in the place of our relationship with him, as we walk with him he communicate his heart to us and we learn of his will and follow. This is why relationship with the Father is very important, he reveals his heart to us and we learn of his secret. However, there is also the indwelling Christ, and the way he leads us is different. He is in you and he is the life, whenever you want to do anything out of him you will feel this grip of death, and then you will know to withdraw from taking such action, and rather you abide in Christ. This feeling of the grip of death depends on how much you know the Life (the indwelling Christ).

If you do not know the indwelling Christ, if you have not become awakened to him, you won’t be conscious of this feeling of the grip of death. How much death you feel depends on how much you are awaken to the Life and how far away is that action from the Life. You abide in the Life and allow the Life guide you in making decisions on actions that you want to take. Within the Life there are several choices of actions, and outside the Life there are several other actions that the devil and the flesh will present to you. You choose whether you want to walk in the Spirit or walk in the flesh, whether to abide in Christ or wonder into death and yield to the carnal man. In fact, this is a decision you make from the moment you got born again, because if you made Jesus your Lord it means that you have made a dedication to yield to him, to abide in Christ and always walk in the Spirit.

If you are truly born again then your decision will always be to choose from the options you have in the Life. How would you know the options that you have in the Life? You know by thinking about them while abiding in the Life; you get out of the flesh, many of us make decisions in the flesh. But you must get out of the flesh, do whatever works to get you out of the flesh and the hold or influence of the carnal man. Once you are sure you are out of the Life, wrap around the strong grip of the Life, then you begin to think about the options you have. You will feel the Life repel from some option, they are alien to him, and he cannot accept such options. Whatever the Life repels from you know it is death, the ones he does not repel from are the ones you must choose from.

Many of us Christians, our mind have been condition to think God’s choice is always one, but it is not always like that. Sometimes there are a list of choices that are within God’s will, and we are given the opportunity to choose. God makes it this way because he wants to train sons who would be able to make decisions for themselves, wise decisions. The pride of every parent is that they have succeeded in training their children to the point that they can make good decisions for themselves, and they don’t have to come running to their parent for every decision they want to make.

Parents want to be able to look at their children decisions in life and say, “Yes, that’s my child, I trained him. I am proud of him, I am proud of the decisions he has made in life”. So there are times that the Father will tell you exactly what he wants you to do, and there are times that he would not say anything because he is training you to be able to make some decision yourself by relying on his seed (Life) in you.

“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” (1John 3:9).

That scripture is saying by the seed of God in you, you cannot sin. God wants us to take up actions base on his seed in us, because it is by that seed that you are son, and whenever you make a decision by the seed you are making a decision as a son. We need to live and walk as sons of God, we are often lost in the flesh, and we spend most of our Christian life in the struggle of the flesh. We are called to rest (abide) in Christ, rest in the life of God in us, the seed. So you abide in the Life and allow the Life lead you, I also mentioned the Spirit of the Life who's work is to empower us to live by the Life and help you as the Helper to follow the leadings of the Life. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Life and the Helper, he helps us in following the leading of the life, whenever we are not sensing the leading of the life and we are just carried away in the flesh, the Spirit comes in and speaks to us, he guides us that we might remain abiding in the Life.

Oneness, Union With God

When I think about our oneness with God, it's just so astonishing, the only thing I could compare it with, the only thing that gives it a form in human term, and allow my human brain to be able to comprehend it is marriage. A young lady born in poverty, lived in the slump all her life. Poverty is all she has ever known, her company is with the poor of the poor. Her family line has only known poverty, generations after generations it has been like that. This is her history and her destiny. She could not have imagine anything for herself or her future other than poverty—she has accepted and embrace that.

Then all of a sudden, the king noticed her, and for some reason he fell in love with her. Immediately he picked her out of that slump, clean her up, cloth her with the finest and most expensive clothes. She is then adorned with gold, and a crown was placed on her head. He marries her and she becomes the queen. This one whom the world thought will never amount to anything is now in the company of nobles, are fellowship is with royalties.

Here is this young lady as she walks so graciously, right into the private chamber of the king, the secret place where only the king enters. All the nobles and ranks in the land do not know this secret place neither have they entered it. Here is one, born a noble, his grandparents were nobles, all through his family line, generations after generations are all nobles, he grew up around the palace, probably spent most of his life in the palace, yet he does not have access to this private chamber, neither does he know it.

Instead a young lady whose family has never gotten anywhere near the palace, a woman of the slump, with no noble blood, with nothing at all, yet she walks in and out of the private chamber. She sits on a throne by the side of the king's throne, she share a bed with the king along with all that he has. All that is under the king's authority is now under her authority. Indeed, she has transcend, all because of one union.

Look at us, men that are born not too long ago, yet we have access to mysteries that angels have not yet touched despite the fact that they have been existing long long before us. We would teach angels, we would judge angels and show them wisdom, the very wisdom hidden in God. We are seated on a throne by the right hand of God's throne, we have become one with Him, sharing all that he has. Even His glory that he would not share with anyone He now shares with us. We have been brought into the inner chamber, into places that angels does not have access to.

Our company is no longer with created things (we are not in their class anymore), our fellowship is now with the Godhead. Our class and status is with the members of Godhead, we have been admitted into the company of the Elite of the elites— yes, the most elite group in all of eternity. Anything other than the members of the Godhead is beneath us, it is not of our class. We have high taste now, for we only taste of things within our class, the things of God Himself. God exists in Himself, by Himself, He is all sufficient. He is the realm that He exists, and in this realm He is everything; He is the land, the air, the life, the light, the water, the sound, the word, the communication, the food, the sustainer, the power, energy and all. He is all that He needs.

We exist in this realm that is nothing but God, and our taste, our class is only the things of this realm, every other thing is beneath us. I emphasize; our taste is only that which is utterly God, every other thing is beneath us.
