Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence

The main reason God created us is to dwell among us and have fellowship with us. He used the ark to bring great assurance to His people, Israel, that His presence was among them regardless of their sinful ways. How does the ark of the covenant translate to us today? How does the ark of the covenant transition to the promise for the new covenant believer that the Lord is in our midst, despite our sinful ways?

This book, Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence attempts to demonstrate just like God accompanied Israel in their wandering in the wilderness as well as in their return from exile, so, too He is with us in all our life’s situations.

Ark of the Covenant – Moving With God’s Presence is designed with both the Christian and not-yet-saved in mind. It shows in a straightforward way how God’s presence is a two-way operation; it can work both ways – for and against – depending on which side one is on.

The ark, just as it was an emblem of God’s presence before, the cross is an emblem of God’s grace. What role does it play in your life?

Regardless of what we see or experience, God has not forgotten the human race.

All parts, Volume 1, Volume 2 & Volume 3 of this book are available as e-books on Amazon.com

When You’re Under Spiritual Attack (Part 2)

am_i_under_spiritual_attack
Dear Beloved of God, if you’re under a spiritual attack, would you quickly know it and deal with it effectively?

Although every Believer struggles at different times with spiritual attacks, not every Believer recognizes them always as from the devil. Some may blame their situation, family, friends, church, boss, neighbor and at times even God, for their plight. Did you know that the devil is the enemy of your soul and a master deceiver who prompts problems and vanishes before anyone recognizes his influence?

Know this: God wants us to be ready for any spiritual attack that comes our way. He wants us to be equipped in the strength of His power to stand against the enemy’s plans and beat him in those particular battles in our life.

The following message is a continuation of When You’re Under Spiritual Attack Part 1.

Recognizing Spiritual Attacks

4. Struggling with spiritual appetite

Do you sometimes experience loss of appetite for spiritual things, like reading the Bible or listening to sermons? Whenever you lose your spiritual enthusiasm, that’s really when you need it most. Plunge yourself into the Word – nothing nourishes better than the Word. When you immerse yourself in it, you’re assured of forgiveness for your past sins, in addition to being guaranteed of victory now as well as in the future. God’s Word contains the power to bring change to your mind, heart and mood. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103). Eat His Word, for it will be your joy and heart’s delight (Jeremiah 15:16).

5. Struggling with inclusion preferring seclusion

When I was going through a spiritual attack, my husband ministered to me saying, “When a lion attacks a herd of buffaloes, at first he’s just on the prowl, but as the chase ensues, the one animal that separates itself from the group becomes meat.” (See 1 Peter 5:8) Usually, such that isolate themselves are, at that moment, weak, injured and in pain.

If you discover that you have no desire to be among other Believers and you want to disconnect, recognize that this is a spiritual attack. Don’t forsake gathering with other Christians (Hebrews 10:25). Also, get back to the sheepfold, in the presence of the Great Shepherd, He will protect you.

6. Struggling with kingdom service

Once upon a time you were excited about involving yourself in the activities of your church. You used to volunteer for service, but now you do stuff out of obligation rather than joy. You lost your momentum along the way and are simply going through the motions. If you’re honest, you’ll tell “these people to leave you alone instead of bothering you with requests for serving”. Honoring God with your lips while your heart is far from Him (Matthew 15:8) puts a major dent in your spiritual service. Believer, “If you are returning to the Lord with all your heart, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtaroth from among you and direct your heart to the Lord and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.” (1 Samuel 7:3) Foreign gods and Ashtaroth are things that are taking you away from doing good in the kingdom, and the hand of the Philistines is the spiritual attacks.

7. Struggling with sleep due to interruptions or nightmares

Enough rest and a good night’s sleep are essential if we are to remain active in our spiritual (and physical) life. However, the enemy can cause disturbances with scary dreams or even nothing in particular – you just find yourself awake and you’re not sure why.

After a somewhat sleepless night, the following morning I had planned to sleep in, but was unable to. So after tossing and turning I decided to text my husband who was at work:
Screenshot_2015-10-04-23-22-09 A
What’s interesting is that I had not seen it for what it was – a spiritual attack! This lack of sleep had interfered with my prayer routine. I was tired, yet awake and unproductive. Nevertheless, that question in the text, struck me moments later and after embracing the following verses, I was able to sleep well. “I will lay down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me” (Psalm 3:5) and “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8).

8. Struggling with previously overcome temptations

Ignoring all the above seven signs is likely to usher you to this step – you don’t want to reach here. Being unproductive in your spiritual life is dangerous. Past enticements can come back more ferociously and you’ll have no ammo to resist. When you’re where you should be i.e. submitted to God, only then will you be able to resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7). Brethren, when you’re under attack, holding fast onto Jesus will open your eyes to the way of escape that God has provided for you, as 1 Corinthians 10:19 states.

Conclusion

Spiritual attacks can hook themselves onto setbacks, losses, disappointments or even major victories in our lives. If you’ve lost momentum, you’re struggling in your spiritual life, and no longer find any thrill in faith matters, it is time unclog your spiritual arteries that would otherwise cause a spiritual cardiac arrest and let the cleansing blood of Jesus flow through! Respond to spiritual attacks with the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18), building yourself up in your most Holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit (Jude 1:20). In so doing, you’ll keep crushing invisible barriers until you stand victorious.

When You’re Under Spiritual Attack (Part 1)

am_i_under_spiritual_attack
Are spiritual attacks real or imaginary? I’ll answer that with a question: Is air actual or make-believe? There are things we may never touch, but the effects of the same are undeniable. I have experienced spiritual attacks and while I don’t look forward to any more, it’s not certain they won’t happen again, but should I face this another time then I’m better equipped at identifying and overcoming.

A Christian’s life is one of battles. When you become a follower of Christ, you essentially enlist in the Lord’s Army. You don’t go out looking for war, instead it just finds you. Although this happens, you can expect victory all the time.

Recently, my sister sent me a message on spiritual attacks – she was not aware that I had experienced this for a while. What is funny is that the same morning I received her text, God had just pulled me out of what I’ll call “a major despondency phase” that had been going on for a long time.

One part of the attacks I faced began after the burial of my dearest friend – a young mother who died of breast cancer in April of 2014. On several occasions she would appear to me singing or saying things – incidentally, not evil things, but the normal stuff about her life and family. (Here, I just want to tell you that if you ever see the dead appear to you, as a Christian, your responsibility is to rebuke that demon, which has taken on a familiar form.) After this, I began noticing a change in my spiritual demeanor.

The scary thing about what I was going through was that at this point in my life as a Believer, I was expected to deal with it. The longer you have been walking with the Lord, the better you’re expected to handle and overcome attacks – right? After all ‘if God brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it’ and ‘God cannot give you more than you can handle’. (By the way, have you ever tried those clichés on someone going through major stuff? Yeah, they don’t work!)

While spiritual attacks are intended by the enemy to weaken and destroy, on the contrary, these same attacks are used by God to fortify the spiritual lives of those who keep looking up to Him. They become spiritually fit and seasoned for battle. It should therefore be no surprise that such are those who triumph over the enemy, increased tempo and intensity of spiritual attacks notwithstanding.

Recognizing Spiritual Attacks

Attacks in your spiritual life can occur when you experience a traumatic event or a major victory in your life i.e. at your weakest moment or when you least expect it. Spiritual attacks do not mean that God does not care for or that He has forsaken you; He is merely revealing the enemy and trying to catch your attention.

We shouldn’t be so naive as to expect the attacks to always be very conspicuous. Sometimes they are so faint, or have been happening for an extended period of time, that the person is oblivious that they’re even attacks.

Anyway, how do you know that you’re under a spiritual attack?

1. Struggling with overwhelming feelings of helplessness or discouragement

Feelings of hopelessness, feelings of despair, feelings of despondency, feelings of depression… When you rely on feelings, you’re bound to be tossed hither and tither. Feelings cannot be trusted – and especially when they are in opposition to the Word of God. If His Word says, “we are more than conquerors through him” (Romans 8:37) then we are, regardless of feelings.

2. Struggling with worries, doubts, and fears daily

Feelings will almost always give birth to worries doubts and fears. It’s important to know the state of your heart and mind – what’s your focal point in those attacks? An everyday fear, worry, or doubt needs regular treatment of God’s word such as 2 Timothy 1:7, Philippians 4:4-8, and Matthew 21:21 for meditation and memorization.

3. Struggling with regular prayer

When fervency and regularity in prayer is lacking where it was present before, that can be a sign that you’re under attack. the enemy would love to hinder you from praying with power and consistency so that his evil work of stealing, killing and destroying can continue. We must never forget that our effectual fervent prayers will always avail much (James 5:16) – even when we don’t ‘feel’ it.

Stuck and Lost (but hopeful)

Pits are not permanent places

Pits are not permanent places

Joseph found himself in an unbelievable situation. Due to no fault of his own, he was thrown in a pit by his brothers, and as if to celebrate their evil deed, then they sat down to eat a meal! Genesis 37:23-25

Anyway, this one man was thrown into a pit by several of his loved ones – that was bad enough, but looking at his life, you know that he realized something liberating – pits are not permanent places. Talking about pits, another thing that people experience is this – one person throwing several of his loved ones in a pit. Oft times it occurs where you’re so trusting and least expect any problem.

Most individuals who succeed in throwing a group into the pit usually possess some charisma and you’d hardly suspect that they’re up to any mischief. They’re usually very smart and loved by almost everyone who knows them. And when they do something drastic, their beloved are left stuck, lost and in disbelief.

A family discovers that their husband and father has been living a secret life. According to his son, this man was a “perfect father” and his wife described her husband as “a good man, a great father. He would never hurt anyone.” Yet here is one tale of a church-going, scout-leading, family man who fell so low and become a serial killer, murdering ten people in Sedgwick County (in and around Wichita, Kansas), between 1974 and 1991.

His wife had been envied by women at her church for the way her husband doted on her, helping with her coat and always opening the car door. The possibility that her husband of 34 years might be BTK has left her “in quite a lot of shock,” said someone who had been a friend of hers since elementary school. (From Time Magazine, March 14, 2005, by Jeff Chu)

Whether it’s the discovery of spousal infidelity or some other kind of perfidy by a loved one, stories of lies, deception and deceit are not new in our day. When you’re thrown into a pit by someone else’s sin, yes, you will feel let down, and even ask God, why has all this happened to us?!

Beloved of God, you will not stay in that pit indefinitely. Every trouble has an expiry date. Have faith in God and keep looking up. You can, like Joseph, choose to forgive.

19 But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.Genesis 50:19-21

In this modern example, we see a husband’s forgiveness toward his wife who returns home pregnant with another man’s baby, after years of being a prostitute on the streets.

When you're thrown into a pit by someone else's sin, yes, you will feel let down...keep looking up. When you do, you will definitely see the light and receive new hope.

When you’re thrown into a pit by someone else’s sin, yes, you will feel let down…keep looking up. When you do, you will definitely see the light and receive new hope.


Do you have a loved one that has run down the family business or depleted your resources, maybe trying to feed their drug or sex addiction? Although it might not be easy, forgiveness is the only sure start to getting out of the pit they’ve thrown you in. Forgiving them means that you have not given up hope. It means that you’re positioning yourself to not miss God’s grace. It means that you have refused to be defiled by bitterness.

15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.Hebrews 12:15

Sometimes the enemy decides to use one person to embarrass, kill, steal from and destroy a family. As believers, we have to recognize this. We must identify who the enemy is and refuse to give him a foothold. Forgiving the person through which trouble has come is denying the enemy a grip.

Finally, I want to leave you with this wonderful word of encouragement from Romans 8:28,

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

Shalom!

Why Has All This Happened To Us?

break altar

Here’s a question you may have asked yourself before:

“If the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us?”

Some problems come with such a severity that one finds themselves asking such a question.

A while back, my family was facing a difficulty and one of my sisters had reached a point of despair. She was crying. “Have we been saved only to be shamed?” She asked. We needed relief fast but things only seemed to be getting worse rapidly.

I thought to myself: Behind every Google Map, there is a much more complex map that is the key to our queries but hidden from our view. It’s as if there is an invisible barrier between what we can see and what we can’t. This took me back to the book of Judges. It was a terrible time for the Israelites and the situation kept getting worse. So here was Gideon beating out wheat in the winepress to hide it from the Midianites, who whenever they came around, stole everything they could carry, and destroyed everything else. People lived in fear; they didn’t know what would happen next but they were sure it would be bad – yet they couldn’t see the real issue. There was the ‘Google Map’ but what was really behind this difficulty?

Behind the Trouble

The answer to that question is spelled out clearly in Judges 2:10-12 The people forgot and forsook God. Wait, there’s more… in His anger against Israel the Lord handed them over to raiders who plundered them. He sold them to their surrounding enemies, whom they could no longer withstand… They were in terrible distress. Then the Lord raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these plunderers. Yet they would not listen to their judges but whored after other gods and bowed down to them. (Judges 2:14-17)

Saint of God, perhaps you know from personal experience how it feels to have the forces of wickedness unleashed against you. You develop ‘survival tactics’ because you just want make it through another day. In Judges chapter 6, Gideon was doing exactly that. He was beating wheat in a winepress because if he did it in the right place the raiders would find him and take it all. He was just trying to survive. When the angel of the Lord appeared to him and said that God was with him – Gideon just couldn’t believe it. Things were so bad that he couldn’t see God anywhere.

13 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” – Judges 6:13

God’s answer to Gideon’s complaint of how the enemy was wrecking their lives was simple; “…pull down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the Asherah that is besides it and build an altar to the Lord your God…” (Judges 6:25-26)

Still peering behind the ‘Google Map’, what this means is that sometimes trouble pursues and overtakes us because of strange and ungodly altars in our lives. Some altars maybe our own doing while others may have been erected by our parents as in the case of Gideon.

Tearing Down Your Father’s Altars

It suddenly dawned on me that when there is sin in the camp, unfortunately, everyone is affected – the saved and unsaved alike. It is the responsibility of those who love God, those who take Him seriously to ensure that God’s will prevails. Remember, in Joshua chapter 7, when Achan took some of the devoted things (from the fallen Jericho), the anger of the Lord burned against the people of Israel. Verse 1 says that the people of Israel broke faith in regard to the devoted things. They went to war and were defeated by their enemy. It was only after they had destroyed those things that they overcame their enemies. Going against God weakens a people and they become an easy target for the enemy.

When we begin to take God seriously He assures us of peace with Him, but we have work to do. Our first task is not to take on the external foe, but to deal with the enemy within.

Break free from ungodly altars

Break free from ungodly altars

Gideon had to deal with anti-God evils right in his own home and family. His family had an altar to Baal, a pagan god of prosperity, and a pole for Asherah, a goddess of sex. Whoa! Isn’t it amazing how blind we can be to our own sins? How can we stand with lifted arms and tears in our eyes asking God why such bad things are happening to us, when right in our own homes the worship of God is mixed with idol worship and sexual perversion?! Until we have dealt with such wickedness in our own households, the enemy will continue to have a field day in our lives.

Things were going terribly wrong in our family, sin seemed rampant and God seemed several million miles away. People were desperate, emotions were running high and then like a scene from the book of Judges, God spoke, revealing the key to our queries. Like Gideon, we had take tear down our father’s altars and then build the proper kind of altar to the Lord. We couldn’t expect power from God to defeat enemies on the outside if we didn’t face the enemy within.

When you see sinful or demonic or ungodly things happening repeatedly in your life or family, it is more than likely that there’s an altar to the enemy present. You know what things plague you and if you’re tired of them, stop hiding in the winepress – come out and deal with them! Take time to break free from past patterns and practices of your family and community in order to be in tune with God. Break free from bowing down to idols (anything that has taken the place of God in your life)! Break free from spirits other than the Holy Spirit of God! If you’re afraid to be seen by unsaved friends and family members breaking those ungodly altars, then like Gideon, do so during the night. After all the Bible says that a man sowed his wheat and while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away (Matthew 13:25); but this time, you will be awake and ready when he comes. You will do well to arrest him in his tracks! He will not have a chance to sow discord in your life anymore!

We know that after Gideon obeyed God, in Judges chapter 7, God used him to bring victory to Israel – defeating the very Midianites that had earlier impoverished Israel. You may be the person that God wants to use to bring deliverance to your household. The enemy might have unleashed terror on your family but be encouraged in the Lord; keep looking up, for He has not abandoned you. The trouble you see today has an expiry date and no enemy is more powerful than the almighty God. God has not saved you to shame you for anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame (Romans 10:11). Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld.

A Quick Word on Fasting and Prayer

fasting pic
Here is an encouragement to someone waiting upon the Lord in fasting and prayer. I believe that God has been revealing some things that are personal to you so that you can push beyond the limitations that surround you. You might have been around a particular mountain for long and it’s time you moved ahead.

When you are at a crossroads; when facing some major decisions and need breakthrough… what do you do? Sometimes in our lives we reach a point where what we desire seems beyond our reach. When that happens, we must check our faith level.

It is only through faith that we will receive our breakthroughs and move to the next stage of our lives. Faith delivers to us all we need. According to our faith, it is done unto us. ( Matthew 9:29 NKJV) This faith is now – not tomorrow. It is our title deed for the things we hope for. (Hebrews 11:1). We ‘see’ our victory in the spirit before we actually ‘touch’ it the physical. When the eye of the spirit has seen it, we possess it. Faith enables us to see things as they should be.

If you are in a period of fasting and prayer, please be encouraged as you trust, hope and wait upon the Lord because He will renew your strength ( Isaiah 40:31). God will show you things that you have not known before (Jeremiah 33:3) and you will discern God’s voice and follow His plan for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)

It is only those who are sick that go to see the doctor. When they do, they are examined, then given a diagnosis (the nature/cause of their ailment is identified), prognosis (predictions that are likely to come from their condition and) and some prescription (instructions for treatment). I want you to imagine a bacterial infection. Before bacteria can multiply and cause symptoms, the body’s immune system can usually destroy them. There are occasions, however, when the attack is too great and some help is needed and that’s when we make our way to the doctor. To get rid of this infection, the doctor prescribes some antibiotics. These are powerful medicines that fight bacterial infections and can save lives when used properly. Antibiotics either stop bacteria from reproducing or kill them. After which, your body’s natural defenses are usually able to take it from there.

Jesus acknowledged that it is the sick that need a physician. ( Luke 5:31) We all need a physician in different areas of our lives. It could be in the area of relationships, perhaps the marriage is falling apart, or finances where you’re in over your head with debts, or spiritually where you need help in your faith, praying or reading of the Word. Whatever the case may be – we all need a doctor and so we go to the Lord, our Healer with fasting and prayer.

Following His examination of us via His Word, our Physician identifies what ails us and how the condition will develop; and its effects on our lives. He does not stop there but goes ahead and writes a prescription to be taken for a specific number of days. As with antibiotics (that can save lives when used properly), the principle is the same; following instructions is vital. We are more than likely to dethrone the powers of darkness that curtail our movement when we adhere to the Great Physician’s directions. The instructions/directions will be what will put something in you to fight the problem you currently face. Jesus said that some problems will only go away by prayer and fasting ( Mark 9:29 NKJV). Those long-standing, deep-seated issues will only be dethroned by the joint weapon of fasting and prayer. Without neglecting reading of the Word, as you combine your prayer with fasting, you will receive power in you (made possible by the Holy Spirit) to reach higher heights in Christ.

Receive new strength to step up to the next level in your walk of faith!

Convinced, Confused or Careless?

circlesSome people are too careful to wander far from shore, but are not convinced enough to swim into the waters and are too confused to move away from the periphery of the sea; so they choose one of both ways – and end up going in circles. Why is it that in spite of a massive, ongoing campaign on the hazards of cigarette smoking, millions continue to light up? According to the Spokesman Review, November 13, 1991, p. C1, health experts might be more successful if they acknowledged the pleasurable aspects of smoking. Then once they had a smoker’s attention, they could let loose on why it’s time to quit. That was 12 years ago when virtually no one knew anything about e-cigarettes, battery-powered devices that don’t burn tobacco, but rather heat liquid nicotine into a smoke-like water vapor. Today, more than 250 companies sell them in flavors such as bubble gum and peach schnapps. And now sales are set to top $1 billion!

I am guessing that H. Truman was quite right when he said, “If you can’t convince them, confuse them.” The problem with that, however, is that soon you’ll have people’s minds playing tricks on them. If your mind is playing tricks on you, it will lull you into carelessness. Satan’s business is not so much in scaring us to death as persuading us that the danger of a spiritual fall is minimal. No wonder Peter advised us to “resist him, standing firm in the faith” (I Peter 5:9).

Some people are too careful not to wander far from shore, but are not convinced enough to swim into the waters and are too confused to move away from the periphery of the sea; so they choose one of both ways.

Some people are too careful to wander far from shore, they are not convinced enough to swim into the waters and are too confused to move away from the periphery of the sea; so they choose one of both ways.

With e-cigarettes as an alternative for smoking cessation and replacement, one can smoke “anywhere” because they “don’t smell and are very undetectable”. It is no longer called smoking but “vaping” and celebrities are trying to make it look cool. Can you spot confusion and carelessness all in one here? I liken this to advocating the use of condoms for safe sex. This alternative has many users playing with fire. They can “light” it up “anywhere” because it is “very undetectable”. There is no alternative, no replacement, and no substitute to safe sex outside the bounds of marriage except abstinence!

Whatever you don’t consider, you get hardened to but whatever you consider – that is what comes to pass in your life – good or bad. What are you considering? Abraham, being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead… (Romans 4:19). After salvation, if you harden yourself to your new nature you will follow the ‘high thought’ – the way which the world thinks is okay. If Abraham had in fact kept considering the deadness of his body, he would have weakened his faith and the promise of God would not have come to pass in his life. We can say, in faith, Abraham considered the promise of God and possessed it. The alternative would have cost him this promise. The world has presented digital smokes as an alternative and some tobacco analysts predict its sales could surpass conventional cigarettes in the next decade. My question is: At whose expense?

Cigarettes and sex are just two examples the world offers substitutes or alternatives for but I’m sure you can come up with many more. Is there a substitute that has been presented to you regarding something that you know you should just stop?

The reason we embrace alternatives and substitutes instead of dropping harmful habits and sinful deeds is because our minds have not been renewed. We haven’t exchanged our way of thinking with the word of God. When a Christian doesn’t exercise mind renewal they most likely end up being a carnal Christian. A carnal Christian lives by strengthening their senses instead of being strengthened by the Spirit of God. Mind renewal is an everyday affair – not a onetime thing.

When a Christian doesn’t exercise mind renewal they will most likely be a carnal Christian.

When a Christian doesn’t exercise mind renewal they will most likely be a carnal Christian.

Have you fallen? Get up and change your thinking. With renewed thinking, you will no longer look for a substitute or alternative because you will have no desire to sit on the e-fence in order to obtain e-nicotine. Hey, you will not even have the urge for illicit sex. If you are willing and obedient to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, this is a war you will win. Remember, God is on your side!
