Revealing the Truth about The Benefits of Walking in God’s Wisdom

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet
Standard

The bible encourages us ‘to covet the best gifts’.

One of the gifts of the spirit is wisdom. King Solomon, son of king David, asked God for wisdom and he was known as the wisest man. This made him a great king.

And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. 1 Kings 4:30 KJV

So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. 1 Kings 10:23 KJV

And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom. 1 Kings 4:34 KJV

He was able to handle disputes among his people justly and fairly. He had the gift of discernment. A benefit of wisdom.

Benefits of Walking in God’s Wisdom

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. Proverbs 3:13‭-‬14 KJV

So here it states that one benefit of walking in God’s wisdom is happiness.

This chapter goes on to identify others, such as:

  • Length of days
  • Riches
  • Honour

As children of God, we can pray to Jehovah, asking in faith and as the scripture tells us, He gives liberally.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5 KJV

Importance of Seeking Wisdom

Having wisdom is essential in being an effective spiritual warrior. It allows you to expertly select and utilize the weapons of warfare. These include:

  • Prayer
  • Fasting
  • Worship
  • Declarations
  • The Word of God

Another importance of seeking wisdom, is that with wisdom you gain an understanding of spiritual warfare. You become a soldier who is always prepared for battle and wears his armour at all times.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:10‭-‬11 KJV

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Ephesians 6:13‭-17 KJV

  • Truth
  • Righteousness
  • The Gospel
  • Faith
  • Salvation
  • The Word of God

Wisdom allows you to devise strategies, act in the right timing; to identify and understand the devices of the enemy.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 KJV

Knowing who and where your enemies are, makes you more effective in prayer. People are not your enemies, demonic entities are your true enemies. They motivate people to come against. They are the master strategists. As such, you must direct your spiritual assaults against them.

The benefits of walking in wisdom enhances you spiritually, mentally and physically. It enriches your relationship with people and with Jehovah God. It allows you to progressively and continuously live a life that is pleasing to Yahweh.

I hope these words were of benefit to you. I pray that you store them in your heart and grow in the knowledge of Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Revealing the Truth about Jonah 1 – 4 by Denise N. Fyffe

Revealing the Truth about Jonah 1 - 4
Standard

Repentance Follows a God sent Prophet

The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai: “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the Lord . He went down to the port of Joppa, where he found a ship leaving for Tarshish. He bought a ticket and went on board, hoping to escape from the Lord by sailing to Tarshish.-Jonah 1:1‭-‬3 NLT.

Disobedience and Correction

Jonah is an example of an unwilling prophet. His story shows us the classic example of God using someone who is initially unwilling, but is still used to fulfill God’s purpose.

After going through a storm, being thrown off of a ship and being swallowed by a whale Jonah then relented to God. Sometimes it takes great correction and trials from God, to bring us back on the path that we are meant to be on.

When I read the scriptures further, something stood out. The seamen were religious men. They might not have believed in Yahweh, but they believed that there was a God and turned their hearts and lives to Him when He demonstrated his power.

Revealing the Truth about Jonah 1 - 4

As for Jonah, I could see him sulking, as some of us often do when doing something is not for our benefit. I also could see him being thrown off the ship, sinking to the depths, gasping for breath and then being swallowed by what must have seemed to be a mountain. Only God could cause an animal that big, which likely did not eat flesh, to swallow a human being.

Imagine being in the esophagus and stomach of a living animal. Water would be everywhere. How then did Jonah survive?

With God’s help!

God would have altered the natural workings of the whale, to protect Jonah and keep him alive while he was in the whale’s stomach. That is how powerful our God is, because Jonah was not digested those three days.

After being spewed out on the beach, Jonah received his second chance and you can see that He didn’t hesitate. If it were me, I would be scared out of my mind.

Immediately, he proclaimed the Word of God.

Repentance

Jonah was a God sent prophet. Therefore, God not only made way for him, but the hearts of the people were open and ready to heed God’s warning.

The sailors were in the right placed at the right time, to be saved. Though they lost some cargo, they gained their soul. These were good men. Men who did not want to be guilty of murder when they threw Jonah overboard, so they did everything else first. That is why God allowed Jonah to divert, not only to correct him in such a way; but for God to be glorified and these men to also learn about and worship God.

In addition, a nation of 120,000 people were saved. When God sends you somewhere, it means that it is the ordained time and season for you to carry out that specific work. Any later and the people of Nineveh might have rejected the warning and God would have to destroy them.

Stubborn Anger

Anger is a rotten, poisonous root that will corrupt even the most saintly of men. The prophet was at risk of being corrupted and God had to use a plant and a worm to teach Jonah a lesson, again. A more subtle approach. For anger, on the flip side, can corrupt subtly; if one is unaware.

The book of Jonah, allows us to see a great demonstration of God’s power. It allows us to see that He is also a master strategist and will move heaven and earth, and everything in it to save his children.

Selah.

Revealing the truth about Proverbs 28:3 by Denise N. Fyffe

proverbs 28 3
Standard

 The Poor oppressing the Poor

A poor person who oppresses the poor is like a pounding rain that destroys the crops.-Proverbs 28:3

image courtesy of heartoftheshepherd

How can you destroy your own, who are on your level?

How can you break the rung beneath to stop another man’s ascension?

If you fall, who will be below you to catch you?

It is dangerous to cleave to foolishness and not heed wisdom.

Think on these things: Guard Your Spirit on Social Media

No Facebook, a month long sacrifice whilst denying the addiction - Week 1
Standard

Take Heed and GUARD YOUR SPIRIT!!!

As sons and daughters of the King of Kings, we are commanded to guard our spirit. That means be careful of what you listen to and what you watch.

Facebook is a beast.

Twitter, Instagram…SOCIAL MEDIA is a beast.

Be careful.

Guard your timeline vigilantly. Don’t be afraid to hide, unfollow or block people. You will watch and see certain things casually, then when temptations come your way, you fall like dominoes. Why, because you were slowly poisoned and made ineffective.

Don’t be afraid to hide, unfollow or block people who show negative, ungodly, foul, immoral or questionable material.

GUARD YOUR SPIRIT!!!!

Think on these Things : The Door of Full Surrender

Standard

“But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” Job 23:10

I was recently sitting with the leader of a workplace organization as he described a question he poses to workplace believers. “What if there were two doors to choose from; behind one door was the complete will of God for your life and behind the other door was how life could be according to your own preference. Which door would you choose?” The struggle for most lies in the desire to follow God completely and the fear of what might be behind the door of full surrender. Most of us desire to follow God, but few of us will do it at any cost. We do not really believe that God loves us to the degree that we are willing to give Him complete permission to do as He wills in us.

If we desire to fully walk with Christ, there is a cost. We may give intellectual assent and go along with His principles and do fine; however, if we are fully given over to Him and His will for our life, it will be a life that will have adversity.

The Bible is clear that humans do not achieve greatness without having their sinful will broken. This process is designed to create a nature change in each of us, not just a habit change. The Bible calls it circumcision. Circumcision is painful, bloody, and personal.

If God has plans to greatly use you in the lives of others, you can expect your trials to be even greater than those of others. Why? Because, like Joseph who went through greater trials than most patriarchs, your calling may have such responsibility that God cannot afford to entrust it to you without ensuring your complete faithfulness to the call. He has much invested in you on behalf of others. He may want to speak through your life to a greater degree than through another. The events of your life would become the frame for the message He wants to speak through you.

Do not fear the path that God may lead you on. Embrace it. For God may bring you down a path in your life to ensure the reward of your inheritance. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” (2 Cor. 4:17)

2017 Testimony: The Tides of Trials

The Life of a 21st Century Prophet
Standard

For over a year now God has been impressing on me to create christian videos, vlogging. I started in earnest recently, allowing him to lead me and take away my insecurities about being in front of a camera and just do them. I created the YouTube channel and shared on social media ‘Gospel Bite with Denise Fyffe’.

Then, I felt led to create them for Instagram and via my WordPress website Revealing the Christian Life. I posted the first two and yesterday, my phone went missing.

Its been a rough couple months, the tides of trials have been rocking my ship and its hard going. Every aspect of my life is a battlefield, spiritual warfare tun up! Primarily my relationship, then my job, then my mental state. I have had to be holding to Jehovah for my life.

I hold on to God for He has already won it for me. This morning, I doubled up on Jehovah’s love, anointed myself and continued with the videos using whatever I had. The devil is roaring and prowling seeking whom he may devour, but Thank God that wont be me, in Jesus name.

I will continue to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, using whatever means He permits.

The 23rd Psalm

Standard

The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’ sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23, King James Version
