How God Judges Cases: Understanding the Ways of God in the Courts of Heaven (6)

 


Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. Be glad in the Lord always because, in Christ Jesus, we have eternal life. We have an everlasting home no one can steal from us.

You cannot compare any treasure on earth with the treasures in the Celestial City because they are priceless. Most often, we allow the pressure of this world to dominate our life and forget our inheritance in Christ Jesus.

The reason God has not opened that door (marriage, business, and home) for you is that He is working on you. God is not wicked to withhold good things from you. Like a five-year-old child, his parent will not give him a standard four-wheel car to drive on the road because the child may die or engage in an accident.

God knows you have not developed the capacity to handle your prayer request. The love Christ Jesus have for you is greater than the love anyone can give you. Humankind love is conditional, but Christ Jesus love is unconditional.

Christ Jesus has several ways of expressing love. Get closer with Christ Jesus, the church, and the Word, and you will know much about the Holy Spirit. You can read my article, How to Activate the Presence of the Holy Spirit, for more profound revelations.

The higher your love for Christ Jesus and the church, the greater the divine blessings. The Holy Spirit reveals more of Himself to you when you desire Christ Jesus with all your heart. If you come to Christ Jesus and the church because of benefits, the Holy Spirit will not reveal more of Himself to you.

When your love for Christ Jesus and the church exceeds the love of the world, the Holy Spirit will reveal and invest the secrets of the kingdom to you. In my previous article, I gave out some divine principles to walk in sexual purity.

Those principles are not legalistic rules. They are divine truth that guides one to become an honourable vessel for Christ Jesus and the church. If Christ Jesus is for you and with you, no one can stop you.

Working for God's kingdom may not make sense to the natural man, but in the Spirit, God and His angels see you as a treasure. The world may ignore you because you have dedicated your life to the kingdom.

Keep up the good works. Don't expect the world (family members and friends) and the church to support (encourage) you because most of them will discourage and oppose you. Many wolves in sheep clothing desire your downfall, but you are more than victorious with Christ Jesus on your side!

Some people may issue curses because of the blessings they see in you, but I assure you that none of their curses will work. Anyone who curses you receives curses from God (See Genesis 12:1-3).

Those who are full of the Holy Spirit will support you in words, prayers, and finance. The people you expect to support you may disappoint you, so never put all your faith in humankind. Depend on God for provision and direction because He is the provider.

When you do the work of God from your heart, people will support you financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Many established ministers of the gospel want me to join their ministry and help them build their churches, but I have not heard from God.

One mistake you must not make in ministry is to decide without the confirmation of the Holy Spirit. Many gospel ministers compete for status, fame, prosperity, and church members, but that is not how Christ Jesus wants us to build His kingdom on earth.

Some “ministers of the gospel” visit satanic shrines for help because they think God is slow in fulfilling His promises. In the spiritual realm, human blood flows under the altars of many “Christian ministers.”

God wants His kingdom (church) to build in love and unity. The church cannot grow in strength and divine power until we express unity and divine love. Today, some religious groups are gradually dominating in many countries, cities, organizations, and villages, yet many Christian believers find it challenging to support their own.

The hypocrisy in the church must stop, or else the unbelievers and various religious groups will dominate the world. Spirit-filled Christians must occupy various leadership positions because it takes leaders with moral integrity, the fear of God, and vision to lead a nation to prosperity.

It is dangerous to allow a man or woman who has no moral integrity and the fear of God to lead a nation, organization, and business. Such a person puts the citizens, employees, and followers under slavery, pain, and penury.

It doesn't matter the number of schools one has attended; if the person has no moral integrity, the fear of God, and vision, the citizens are guaranteed to perish. We have many “Christians” and unbelievers in leadership (political and business) positions, yet corruption rules the nation.

I firmly believe people who have no moral integrity, fear of God, and vision lead poor, developing, and undeveloped countries. If we have people with the right attitude, moral integrity, vision, and the fear of God, the development will increase, and poverty will diminish.

It doesn't matter the religious affiliation. The only virtue needed in political, business, and economic leadership is moral integrity, vision, good attitude, selflessness, and fear of God. If we have leaders with these virtues making and enforcing decisions in parliament and various organizations, the world will be a good place to live.

Unfortunately, the Holy Scriptures declare that the god of this world (Satan) controls the mind of the unbelievers. Demonic spirits influence those who are not born again (See 2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

If leaders in power have all the academic qualifications and deformed mindset (no moral integrity and Spirit of God), the people under them will live in poverty and pain. This is one reason we see poverty in most African countries and other continents.

Child of God, pray for those in authority that they will make and enforce good decisions that will lift the banner of Christ Jesus. Intercede for leadership to make and implement decisions that will uplift the nation's development.

Pray that God will enthrone godly leaders with vision, moral character, god-fearing spirit, good attitude, and selfless character (Meditate on 1 Timothy 2:1-3). Until godly leaders take the leadership mantle, the people within the jurisdiction suffer in darkness. It is like a blind man leading another blind man. All of them fall into the pit (See Luke 6:29).

History has given several lessons to leaders who destroyed innocent lives because they lack moral integrity, vision, and the fear of God. You can read my article Why Christians Must Occupy Every Leadership Position for more profound revelations.

I wrote a short book on the same topic; it’s free on Amazon kindle. The full book will be out soon. When I write that Christians must occupy every leadership, I don’t mean “religious Christians” who are not born again.

There are many “Christians” in various leadership positions who are not born again. We don't need such "Christians" to occupy the leadership position. We are looking for people with moral integrity, the fear of God, vision, leadership skills, and preferably Spirit-filled Christians to lead countries and organizations.

Do you think the unbelievers will lead a group of people without corruption? Never!  Such people are damaged in mind to lead people and create strong systems.  A man with no moral integrity, fear of God, and vision will not create a solid system to regulate the economy and church profitably.

It is very dangerous to allow a man or woman that lacks moral integrity to lead people because he will not allow those with moral character, vision, and the fear of God to make decisions in his leadership.

I know what I am writing to you because I have experienced people with no moral character making decisions for specific groups. This person was so heartless to the extent that I prayed against him and his followers.

God made way for me to escape his wicked leadership chambers.  When a man with no moral character leads a church, most of his followers will portray an evil character and attitude. That is why Christ Jesus said; we shall know a tree (leader) by his fruit (See Matthew 7:15-20).

No corrupt leader will produce a godly follower (potential leader). No godly leader will produce a corrupt follower (potential leader). If by mistake a godly follower (potential leader) finds himself under a corrupt leader, there will always be conflict within the organization.

If a corrupt follower (potential leader) finds himself under a godly leader, either the corrupt follower repents or vacates the organization. That is how the church must operate. The Holy Spirit is Holy, and there is no way the Holy Spirit will use a corrupt system or vessel to build His kingdom.

If you want to know whether a person is born again, search for fruits of the Holy Spirit (See Galatians 5:22-23).

  • Does the person express the love of Christ Jesus?
  • Does the person express joy?
  • Is the person peaceful?
  • Is the person gentle?
  • Do the person show and express faith (a conviction in God's Word)?
  • Is the person patient?
  • Can the person tolerate the imperfections of others?
  • Is the person morally upright?
  • Is the person kind in heart and life?

If you can find these virtues in a man (includes a woman), then the person is born again. A man with these virtues has the Holy Spirit living in him. If you cannot find these virtues in the person, then question the salvation of that individual.

Discipline yourself and use time effectively because time lost cannot be regained. I sacrifice most of my time doing things connected to the purpose God has given. Sometimes I can use over seven hours to write and edit my article.

I spend quality time in prayers, reading, evangelizing, and writing. That is my life. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable when I enter workplaces in search of a temporary job. I feel in my heart that I don’t belong in such places.

I feel fulfilled doing the work of God and helping others know more about Christ Jesus and the Word (Holy Scriptures). With Christ Jesus on our side, we are victorious. In this article, I will share one of the systems God uses to deal with humankind. Kindly read my previous article for more profound revelations.

 

Covenants, One of the Secret Systems of God Almighty

Covenant is an amicable agreement between two or more parties. A man can make a covenant with God (Yahweh) or with a god (demon). God can make a covenant with nations, churches, individuals, tribes, and specific vessels. For example, God made a covenant with Noah and those that survived with him within the flood after his obedience and sacrifice.

 

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.

Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut o_ any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Genesis 9:1-16 KJV

God always remembers His covenant with His creation. Until today, the covenant God made with Noah works. Anytime you see a rainbow, it signifies the covenant God made with Noah and lineage.

God always stands by his covenant. He will not bypass His covenant and obey your words because the covenant binds Him. A man can make a covenant with another person and break it, but with God, He stands by His covenant.

Even in the kingdom of darkness, they work with a covenant. When Satan and his minions make a covenant with a man and the man breaks it, either the person goes insane or dies. The witch doctors and other satanic agents know the consequences of covenants, so they warn anyone that decides to make a deal with them.

They know that spiritual beings do not joke with a covenant, so they warn those who come to them to fulfil their part or else they will face the consequence. Child of God, our Saviour, and Lord Christ work with a covenant, so don't play with Him.

God does not joke with covenant! When we make a covenant with God, He works on them. Some people have several covenants working in their families. For example, in some families, they have a covenant such as blood money, marriage delays, prosperity, an abundance of children, poverty, insanity, sickness, and various bonds.

If you become born again in such families, you must break every satanic covenant operating in your family, workplace and jurisdiction. Failure to deal with the satanic covenant can rise against you.

Some people enjoy free blessings because their family has a covenant of blessings with God. Jacob made a covenant with God that until God blesses him, he will not let Him go. God changed His name to Israel through that covenant, and his lineage became a blessing (See Genesis 32:1-30). God made a covenant with Abram (later became Abraham) and established it with his son Isaac.

 

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut o_ from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be

born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

Genesis 17:1-21 KJV

In Ghana, most tribes circumcise the flesh of the foreskin when the child reaches a particular stage. That circumcision endorses God's covenant with Abraham. Today, we enjoy the Abrahamic blessings because we are spiritual Israelites.

As long as you are part of the Abrahamic lineage, you enjoy the blessings of God. David obtained mercies and blessings from God because of his covenant with God. When the Israelites suffered under the hands of the Egyptians, God used Moses as a tool of deliverance because He remembered the covenant He made with their fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).

Do you think God was partial for only killing the Egyptians firstborn? It was because of the blood covenant. God did not only remember the Israelites because of their pain. When God saw the seal (covenant) of the blood, He passed over the Israelites.

If any of the Egyptians marked their doorstep with blood (covenant), God would have shown mercy on the person irrespective of his tribe. God always stands by His covenant, so keep the covenant.

God remembered the covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel) and had mercy on the Israelites on their way to the Promised Land. Have you now realized why some people and kingdoms suffer yet God keeps silent? God works with a covenant. It is the covenant with God that makes Him act.

 

And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.  

Leviticus 26:44 KJV

And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.

Judges 2:1 KJV

You can be the most pitiful person on earth if you don't have a covenant with God; you become a victim of oppression. Anytime we remind God of our covenant with Him, He responds. Under the old covenant, people could not access the presence of God.

God dealt with His people based on the law. Anyone who breached the law faces the wrath of God, but under the new covenant, we enjoy the mercies, grace, and blessings of God.

 

…Jesus made a surety of a better testament [Covenant].

Hebrews 7:22 KJV Emphasis added

You can read the whole chapter of Hebrews seven and eight for more profound revelations. I will take from verse seven of Hebrews chapter eight because the Apostle keeps writing about the new covenant we have in Christ Jesus.

 

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Hebrews 8:7-13 KJV

Apostle Paul writes that the first covenant was not sufficient for our salvation. Under the old covenant, the only qualified person to enter the holy of holies chambers (presence of God) was the High Priest.

The High Priest had the divine right to atone for the sins of God's people through animal sacrifice, but under the new covenant, Christ Jesus' death and resurrection has open the portal for Christian believers to access the holy of holies chambers (presence of God).

Under the new covenant, the blood of Christ Jesus cleanses all of our sins. When God the Father sees the blood of Christ Jesus, He forgives and forgets all our sins and iniquities. This is one reason many Christian believers enjoy unconditional love, mercies, and grace.

The blood of Christ Jesus has become a covenant for God's children to walk and live in holiness. If God Almighty dealt with us based on the old covenant, many Christian believers and unbelievers would not be alive.

Child of God, don’t break covenants with God because that is one of His systems of making a judgment. Some people intentionally break covenants with God and faced the consequences.

 

For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

Ezekiel 16:59 KJV

God deals with us on covenants, so check whether you have a covenant with Him. Fulfil your part of the covenant because God is always ready to work with the covenant.

 

My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.  

Psalms 89:34 KJV

Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;

Jeremiah 33:20 KJV

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 KJV
