The WRONG impressions about all the RIGHT THINGS make all the RIGHT THINGS seem like the WRONG THINGS.

Don’t let your thoughts go unchecked. Lean not to your own understanding. Monday morning text messages flowed in from West Africa and South Africa.

I heard, “Reduce the expenditures.” “Endeavor to keep the unity. Don’t forsake your father’s friends or your friends. Pray: ‘Send Help.’ Help will arise.” Take some of your Christmas money and bless yourself with a mission trip to learn more about Africa. We are also planning for the choirs in Asia, Malaysia. Whatever path God brought you to your present place on the journey, DO NOT FORGET ALL THE WAY HE BROUGHT YOU — BROUGHT US.

God’s instructions were sealed in my spirit: “Aim at success and fulfill your calling. This is a calling, a joy, not a job. Stay true to what God called you to do. (If that is not clear to you in your mind, review the HISTORY, the tapes, videos and CDs, prophecies and documents. Some details can get muddled and muffled in the multitude of activities, voices and interpretations.) Put it off no longer. Prioritize it. COUNT your RESULTS; don’t just imagine you are being effective. COUNT your RESULTS. TODAY IS A BLESSING.

Thank you for your attendance, support and love during the High Holy Celebration – “Journey for Jesus” and “Considering the Miracles Love Campaign”. Beware of the wiles of the devil. He was blatant enough to tempt God’s son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

I received an exhortation from one of the Pastors in Ghana: *MEN OF HONOUR* by Dag Heward-Mills. READ: Genesis 27:1-29. The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out… (Proverbs 30:17).

When Ham exposed the nakedness of his drunken father, he forgot that if his father hadn’t built the ark, he would have drowned with the rest of the world. What he did not know was that God had recorded his father’s single act of faith and imputed it to him as righteousness. Ham was disgracing someone that God had honoured.

Unfortunately, natural men have mistaken physical weakness for spiritual weakness. They presume that old age, sickness and problems reduce a person’s spiritual authority. That is one of the highest kinds of deceptions.

Isaac was an old, blind man who could no longer tell the difference between his two sons, Jacob and Esau. Jacob deceived Isaac and received the pronouncement of a blessing from his father. Do not be misled by the blindness and weakness of your father. If a blind father can speak a blessing for it to happen, then we must fear the words of fathers.

You often hear people speaking against their fathers. They describe them as irresponsible men who didn’t look after them. Unfortunately, some young people take up the hurts of their mothers and champion the fight against their fathers. This is a terrible mistake for which they pay a high price. Some pay the price of barrenness; some pay the price of death. Yes, he may be blind, irresponsible, and deceived, but he is still a father.

May we never be part of the team that dishonours the fathers that God has honoured!

Start your day with a blessing!! Good morning????

An apostle in South Africa, wrote:
THE UNSHAKABLE NATURE OF THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN YOU –
It’s in the formation of your Character and your conviction.
It’s in your resoluteness to stay focused.
It’s in your settled determination that you will not swerve off the path.
It’s in your determination that you will not negotiate with the darkness.
It’s in your determination that your gazes have become single.

I will share the last one, since this morning, Dec 4, 2017 from another minister from Ghana, West Africa.
