“The Race Is Not For The Swift”
(Balance the Temple of Your heart)
The story of the race between the Hare and the Tortoise.
There once was a speedy hare who bragged about how fast he could run.
Tired of hearing him boast,
the tortoise, whose nickname was “Slow and Steady”
challenged him to a race.
On the day of the race,
All the animals in the forest gathered to watch.
Hare ran down the road for a while and then and paused to rest.
He looked back at Slow and Steady and cried out,
“How do you expect to win this race when you are walking along at your slow, slow pace?”
Do you know what happens next?
The Hare stretched himself out alongside the road and fell asleep, thinking, “There is plenty of time to relax.”
Slow and Steady walked and walked.
He never, ever stopped until he came to the finish line.
The animals who were watching cheered so loudly for Tortoise, they woke up Hare.
Hare stretched and yawned and began to run again, but it was too late.
Tortoise was over the line.
Other animals who were the onlookers shout at the hare:-
“Don’t brag about your lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race!”
1 Cor 1:17-29
Who are the Swift:-
-I know all
-it’s my power
-I am wiser than you all
-those who does not reckon with the speed of the Holy Spirit.
There is a lifting Power beloved:
And you can have it.
The same power of Old is still available.
He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven:
-to Ahab he thought,with his strong horse,
he can run faster than Elijah.
But Elijah knew,
That there is power in the east wind.
King Pharaoh thought he had Mosses and the children of Israelites in a tight corner.
With the Redsea,no way of escape.
His calculations were proved wrong.
The mighty wind,came to their rescue.
Do you want to catch up with your divine assignments,
-The wind again in action.
But all these are for those who are:-
-die to the flesh
-His will,not yours
-His game plan not yours.
-Not for proud,
-Having plan “B”
-Ashame of Christ,
-Depending on the voice of people
-This is how we do it type.
Why should a child of God decided that it is better to take the wide way.
At least everyone I knew is passing the wide way.
Only few are taking the narrow way
You have to be able to balance the temple of your heart.
Go back to Church of Eli in Shiloh again,
If you are a bible reader,
Many things are going wrong.
1 Sam 2:12-17
We can see:-
-riotous service with barbecue.
-not obeying the lay down rules concerning Worship.
-love of flesh(sex)
-love self Honour
-contempt and arrogance
-lust for power,possesion and control.
So if you love these,how can you balance the temple of your heart?
Now to Eli the priest,
Why did he choose not to confront the situation.
Numbers 15:22-31 explains it all.
He should have executed his children.
But instead,he decided they can ruin their lives and that of others.
There are times when difficult situations must be confronted,
Whether it be painful or not.
Are you aware,
That the wrath of the devil is against the covenant of God?
Daniel 11:31 explains better.
“And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the ‘sanctuary of strength’ and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate”.
Father,show me if am already in problem,with my associations.
There are 2 baptisers in the bible and they are both cousins.
-John the baptist
-Jesus the baptisers.
Their way of baptism is different,
-One with water,
-The other with Spirit.
So ask yourself,
Are you truly baptized with the baptism of Jesus or with the way of this world.
If you are baptised from above,you cannot be debaptised from below.
If you are really Annointed,
It’s going to be you and your God.
Annointing sharpens your focus,
Your father may not support you,
Davids father did not.
King David knew it’s in between him and his God.
No one else.
God never Annoint 3 groups:-arrogant group,
Stop allowing anyone to put a label on you.
Covenant man is a man of agreement.
The man who understand all about being Annointed.
The annointing is not for you,it’s for somebody else.
For their sickness,healing,help,addictions.
Let me repeat it again:-
“If you are born from Above,you cannot be unborn from below”
Because Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.
Why are you casting your precious pearls on Pentecostal Swines and Dogs?
Abuse -is -inevitable.
They will trample on it and come after you.
If they Discredit your :
hold on to your vision.
The brothers of Joseph did more than them,
They bow to him later.
Look at the sons of Eli,
They forgot how God called them
And it’s a pity.
Many forget how they are before God:
They loose the vision to the retoricks of life.
They sell their God for the believe of the world.
Now they carried EGO and they ask :
Who are you?
Is this not the son of Joseph the carpenter?
Are we not the one who raised him up?
They all have one thing in common.
You are here to make a big difference in this life.
If you can see how God sees,
You will do the impossible.
And see the ancient mysteries others are not seeing.
To that that was committed into your hands.
What am saying is,
If you truly receive the Holy Ghost completed with Power,
You will not be convenient at what is happening around you.
The swift is not a winning spirit,
Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us an example about preparation, in
Luke 14:28 and 31.
So not all that glitters is gold,
Not all that others love must you love.
Prove every spirit if they are of Christ.
If you don’t,you may volountarily put handcuffs on yourself,and hand yourself to the powers of darkness.
Am praying for someone here,
“The mesmerizing power of this land shall not swallow you,in the name of Jesus.
The race is not for the swift.
The race is not for the ‘sharp-sharp’.
It always ends in disaster.
