Highlight: The Mustard Seed

Seed: In the last post, we talked about how it is crucial to plant good soil for the seed to grow.  Sometimes, we are the farmer who can sow seeds of the Gospel in the hearts of others when we interact with them. In other times, we are the field by which God Himself sow greatness. In both cases, if the soil of the field is hard, nothing will grow.

The Mustard Seed

Scholars note that it is odd to call a mustard a tree. The fact is it’s only grown to be a shrub. Jesus certainly did not make a mistake in his word choice. The people who were listening to him understood that mustard seeds don’t really grow into trees.

This metaphor implies that a mustard seed growing into a tree is unnatural and could not happen if agricultural laws apply.  

If you notice this, you’ll see Jesus’ warnings. There will be many churches and Christians that seem to grow unnaturally. While we can chalk this up to the supernatural grace of God, this can also mean that there are perversions in the way Christians and churches are produced.  Jesus wants to warn Christians about this unnatural way of being.

Shrub vs. Tree Potential

A shrub differs from a tree.  In the same way, the Holy Spirit develops a true Christian. This individual will differ from one who has a superficial faith. The Christian can live and make decisions by the grace of God. Conversely, the other who claims to be Christian is only borne out of good works and trivial human effort. Somehow, a part of us shrivels in discomfort when we enter a church or encounter a Christian that may appear God-honoring on the outside but is truly self-gratifying on the inside. Even the least discerning of us get uncomfortable around certain people because we know that the way they present themselves is fake and unnatural.  

The Lack of Authenticity in the Church

When watermelons grow naturally, they are oval in shape, full of seeds, and are covered by a green, striped outer skin. Yet these days, we will find watermelons that are square, seedless, and monochromic. These are unnatural, produced by the interference of human hands. While we enjoy eating a seedless watermelon for its convenience, watermelons were never really designed or created to be this way.

In the same way, some churches have become perverted when it comes to their doctrines, values, and objectives; thus, they take on a new nature – one that is not of God. They may identify as a church of Christ in the same way that the mustard tree is identified as something that stemmed from the mustard seed, but the way they present themselves and what makes them up differ. They grow because they placed their own hands in the process.  As a result, we will encounter churches with resounding accusations of secularism, manipulation, abuse, purposeful connection with authoritative figures to acquire power, and unnecessary extensive expenses on marketing and advertising.

Integrity
Preservation of Integrity

And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18

The preservation of integrity is something that not many people can do easily. However, when I thought of all you today, it was easy to write this message to you. I began to discover that the power of preservation lies within your ability to begin to feel the power of God within you moving you forward into a time that is ready to exist for you. Often times, people tend to say things they do not mean, or neglect to put much thought into their words and subsequent actions.

This is what makes integrity such a rare but admirable trait. All people want to be thought of as admirable, but not everyone is willing to commit to their word. In order to call yourself a person of high integrity, you must live up to moral codes, including the fulfillment of one’s promises.

It would help to keep in mind how your identity is tied to your integrity and your word. Knowing this, you will be more careful about the way you deal with others. I hear the word of the Lord saying that I am bringing you to a profound place in a position of great power. For this is the power you have prayed for and the place that you have longed to be. I the Lord your God are now awakening in you the power and the truth of your own word.

This will bring you to a new place of existence and cause you to stand in a new place of power in the earth saith the spirit of God. Everyone wants to like him or herself. If you want to be proud of who you are, become a person who is worth being proud of. Becoming someone you can admire starts woodworking on how well you can live up to the promises you’ve made both to other people and yourself. If someone breaks his or her promise, his or her credibility as a person is put into question. How can you make a stand for yourself when you do not even value your own word?

How can you become respectable if you have not learned to respect yourself by being true to what you say? Keeping a promise can be tricky for some people, however not for you. Even though this is something that is very important for any person’s sense of self, it is often taken for granted. You must remember how important your word is and how it should not be thrown around without care. Otherwise, you’re very identity will also be constructed carelessly and thrown around. I want you to go ahead and receive a free written prophecy which will make you wise in this season, that you are about to see:

That the word of Lord will become life enriching as the prophetic word will be spoken into your life. It will bring you into a life enhancing experience and personal growth. It will be a golden opportunity for you to discover the next steps that the Holy Spirit will have you to take.

When I get your request for the power of prophecy to come over to your life, you’ll feel seven things about to take place in your life. You’ll feel great about yourself. You feel as good as you look. You’ll look as good as you feel. Imagine the possibilities. Discover your hidden talents. Remove mental blocks to success. Turn stress to your advantage. It is vital that I hear from you today so that your faith can be demonstrated.

LIVING AND WORKING IN COMMITMENT

LIVING AND WORKING IN COMMITMENT

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Psalms 37:5

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speaks boldly of your intentions, and the action speaks louder than the words. It is making the time when there is no time. It is coming through time after time, year after year after year.

 

“Commitment is the stuff character is made of: the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.” Shearson Lehman

 

This is a quote that I found to be very powerful, and as I was reading it, I thought of sharing this to all of you today. All people make commitments, but sometimes most people are committed to make no commitments at all. We are not perfect, sometimes we keep our commitments, and sometimes we don’t. We are at a higher level compared to animals, it is our commitment that makes us different from them. We have the capacity to act consistently depending on the commitments that we made.

The word of the Lord says commitment generates your actions, and as you begin to move forward in commitment, I am going to demonstrate my glory in the things that you will find yourself committing to. As you commit your ways unto me saith the Lord and trust in me, you are going to see me go into action on your behalf.

Our commitments enable us to perform and to push harder even if things are not easy. It is our capacity to commit and makes our existence worth it. Commitment is important. It is a kind of moral condition. It is a terrible thing if you do not know how to make commitments, and it is a good thing if you know how to make commitments. I am asking you to be committed today by receiving your personal prophecy for your life.

There is a prophetic word waiting for you now that I’m going to give that will make you realize that COMMITMENT IS ACTION. The moment one definitely commits oneself, providence moves too. When you are committed, you accept no excuses, just results, you just go and submit yourself. It is always an act not a word. Now are you ready to see what God is about to do for your life today?

I want you now to ask yourself two questions as you are releasing the seed so that I can start your prophecy by the time your question is answered.

1. What is a commitment to you?

2. How important is it to make commitments in what you do and to the people around you?

Your future is ready to be born the only one that is stopping it is you. Act now! Watch your future come alive now! God is transforming you completely. This will make you confident, full
of belief and satisfied about the outcome to your situation.

Living in God’s Image

1“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful…” (Genesis 1:26-28)

The image and likeness of God speaks of His visible representation, the exact likeness, having a striking appearance of God in manner and thought. We are in the image of God. We are heirs and joint heirs with Jesus Christ. This is what the power of prophecy reveals. Thus, the prophet is to be found in the brightness of His glory as the perfect imprint and representation of His Person. God has delegated His grace and authority unto His prophets, an innate ability to maintain, to guide and to propel the people of God by the prophetic word. God is the foundation of all prophets, being made in the similitude of God’s identity.

Image is very important. The image you portray is the outgrowth of the knowledge that you have accumulated and it streamlines your thought process. The image you portray determines the thoughts that reside in your mind. Exodus 20:4 says, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” God was against graven images because He already made you in His image and in His likeness.

Are you ready for your abundant life?

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

God has prepared an abundant life for us. Did you know that? In life, we usually focus on all the bad things that happen to us. This causes irrational thinking and even irrational behavior. We tend to emphasize on situations that have gone wrong. It’s human nature to do this, but how is this benefitting the way we live?

We become cynical individuals thinking that nothing good will ever happen to us. We question God for “punishing” us and delve into self-pity.

Have we forgotten God’s Word for us? He has left us many assuring messages in the Bible about giving us the abundance that we desire. Have you heard about His prophetic Word?

There are a lot of Christians who have completely forgotten that God lives in them. Yes, the Kingdom of God lives in you. Once you have come to know and accept this, you are now able to go in the prophetic direction God wants for you. Knowing His prophetic word will enable you to turn the bad into good and gain a whole new perspective in life.

Do you want your free written prophecy? What has God prepared for you to do?

The power of prophecy will help you turn things around from the cynical believer to the empowered Christian you were made to be.
