The Blameless Christian

BlamelessHi Everybody,

I am still trying to get back into the habit of writing but it’s going to take me a bit more time since I’ve been preparing for a fundraising event. The one thing that God has been talking to me lately is about living the “blameless” lifestyle as a Christian.

Granted, we all struggle with weaknesses because we wrestle with our sinful nature and that is understandable, but what God was talking to me about is about living a life with INTERGRITY and HUMILITY.

If we fear God, we must be a type of people that do not stir up trouble or strife in the lives of others.  We have to live a life where no one can say “this person did me wrong”. We have to be strong enough to say “I am sorry” and “I was wrong”. The moment we cannot say these words, is when we have the problem of PRIDE in our lives. We must do a serious heart check in order to remain in “right-standing” before the King of kings and the righteous judge.

Do not give room for the Accuser to have a case against you. 

Psalm 37:37

Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace.

God resists the proud and always gives grace to the humble. (James 4:61 Peter 5:5)

We cannot be people causing our brothers or sisters to stumble because of our attitude. We must be careful that we do not create an atmosphere in which the devil will have a case built up against you to accuse you before the King of kings giving him the permission to torment your life.

In the eyes of the Lord we must be “Blameless”.  

Recently I wrote on my Facebook page about an offering that is not accepted by God in reference to Matthew 5:23-25. Believe me, this principle is still in action today and yet God has been talking to me about how people worship Him in vain when still being disobedient to simple principles.

In my Facebook page I wrote:

There is an offering that is not acceptable to God. When we hurt our brothers and sisters and do not make it right, God will not accept your tithe or offering until you have made it right with them. You must fear God so much that you seek to make it right with your brother or sister. Some people’s blessings are bound up because they have disobeyed this one simple principle and thus, tithe and offer in vain hoping things will change. Go back and make it right and then come back to the alter with your offering and God will bless the works of your hands.

Matthew 5:23-25

23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.

Let us not toy with our lives and fool ourselves. We have to do right and live right and admit our faults and failures. Sometimes it’s not always about being “right” all the time; it’s about creating an atmosphere of peace with your fellow brothers and sisters which is pleasing and acceptable to God. I’m not saying that you will always agree with one another, but the point is, Peace is what we create by the choices we make and by the attitude we choose to present ourselves with towards others as we operate in the reverential fear of the Lord.

Job was described as “Blameless”.  Read the Word and consider what it means to be BLAMELESS before the Lord.

LIVE RIGHT, DO RIGHT, SPEAK RIGHT, and BELIEVE RIGHT. <— this is the key to remaining BLAMELESS.

I have a song that is in my spirit from 21:03  called In Your Presence. May this song bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

Heavenly versus Demonic Wisdom

Hi Everybody!

Today’s meditation comes from the book of James 3: 13-18 (NKJV) regarding Heavenly versus Demonic Wisdom. 

Heavenly Versus Demonic Wisdom

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

The Wisdom that we receive from the Lord comes to us through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is of course the authentic voice of God that guides us and reveals the mysteries of the Bible (God’s Word) by removing the scales off our eyes to understand what God is saying to us. When we seek the truth with a pure heart, we increase in divine wisdom and knowledge as we yield to the authority of the Holy Spirit. However, to every authentic thing there is always a counterfeit.  When you look at the passage you will also understand the workings of those that do not abide by the workings of the Holy Spirit operate by demonic wisdom which is of a contrary spirit. It makes you question, by what spirit do people follow when they do the things that they do?

The wisdom of the Holy Spirit comes from Heaven as mentioned in v.17 and the wisdom that is demonic in nature is of an earthly origin. In v.16 it tells us that where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there and the previous verse reveals that such wisdom is earthly, sensual and demonic.

When I was mediating on this I thought to myself that as intercessors it is imperative that we learn how to discern the spirit(s) of people if we are operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  True wisdom reveals that which is right and wrong and when we are unsure, the Holy Spirit is able to show us what is right and wrong by convicting our spirit man with the TRUTH. Especially in areas regarding Healing and Deliverance ministry, we must always yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit in order to discern whether or not a person is either following the Holy Spirit or following a different/contrary spirit in order to minister to them effectively.

They only way to discern the type of spirit a person follows is by analyzing their fruit as mentioned on v. 18 where it states that  Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. In the NIV Bible the same verse  (v 18) states that: Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is Peace,  that brings about righteousness whereas that which is not of the Holy Spirit, brings about wrath and sin which is characteristically demonic in nature. The Holy Spirit is also noted to be gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and bears good fruits whereas the opposite which is of a demonic spirit is partial and full of hypocrisy if you look at v.17.

When you see the differences in the type of wisdom derived from these two types of Spirits, it is clear that we need to operate with the characteristics of that of the Holy Spirit  in order to bear Good Fruit. Those that operate in a self-seeking manner operate with a spirit that is contrary to the wisdom provided by the Holy Spirit and is noted to be evil in origin in v.16. Basically, it’s either we yield to the virtues of the Holy Spirit’s wisdom in order to walk in righteousness, or we heed to ungodly counsel which is of a contrary demonic spirit. As Children of the Most High God, we ought to walk in the Spirit and yield to the counsel of the Holy Spirit if we want to reap a harvest of righteousness in our lives as stated in James 3:18. Let’s walk in Holiness and learn to discern the difference between these two wisdoms so that we are not so easily deceived or seduced into walking a path that is ungodly in nature consequentially causing us to sin continually, by studying the Word of God and obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit to allow the TRUTH to remain in us, AMEN. Let’s study more on the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and walk in the Spirit rather than in the Flesh.

I have a song here to minister to you from Hillsongs United  called A Beautiful Exchange. I pray that it bless you today.God Bless you Everybody!
