COME ON 2011

We are thankful to the Lord and all our ministry partners, friends and associates for our relationship that kept us in strength during this year of diverse challenges.  This is what the psalmist declares:

Ps 18:1-3
I will love You, O LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.
NKJV

How is this strength manifested? Through divinely apponited relationships. Through the Body of Christ which is a representation of His fullness where is is multiplicity of grace. Through the grace deposit called “father” which is resident in a human vessel. Our safety and security therefore is to remain in this environment called the Body of Christ.

I want to wish all our friends, families, ministry partners, Dr Sagie Govender and the ABC family God’s richest blessings in 2011.

We are grateful to the Lord for having His hand upon our dear friend and brother Santiago Lastra Morales of Mexico. He is recovering from surgery in Mexico City and we stand firm in our faith in the word that the Lord gave us in Rosarita last month when I was praying and ministering to him and his wife Pastora Luz.

Ps 103:1-5
Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord does not want us to be forgetful regarding who He really is and what He only is committed to do for His children. Sickness and disease have to submit to His Word and His authority. Please continue to remember Ap Santiago Lastra in your prayers.

IRENE, HEART OF YAHWEH CAPTAIN, RECEIVING THE CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY FROM ROY PILLAY

A great day of fellowship was experienced by all at the Wyebank Grounds where the two teams from CCF, the Royal Levites and the Heart of Yahweh pitted their skills against each other in a series of events that was contested in a great spirit. A thoroughly enjoyable day. Our appreciation goes to the organisers Theo and Nisholl Thulkanan and their band of helpers who did a great job considering the weather we have been experiencing in Durban recently. Our congratulations go to Irene Pillay’s winning team “Heart of Yahweh”. To Rowen Naicker’s Royal Levites..we know you will come back strong in 2011.

The banners and the team costumes were eye catching and the march to the grounds attracted much attention. Well done to all who contributed to the day’s success.

SEATED WITH HIM

Is it not amazing that one could engage another person in a casual conversation and in a short while discern with whom they are seated.

Scripture informs us that a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is seated with Him and He is seated at the right hand of the Father. So we are seated in a place where we have access to all the resources of the heavens.

Eph 2:4-6

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

 This is our position. Seated with Him and in Him; where He is the very core of our existence. I believe this is the reason why David declared:

Psalm 23: 4

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil; For You are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

NKJV

 

Let us not allow anyone or any circumstance to overwhelm us for He is with us. The Lord is not functioning and issuing His decrees from some remote location. He is formed in us. His Word is near.This is the reason we speak with confidence, boldness and authority that is imparted to us by being seated with Him and functioning from His Presence. The natural mind will never comprehend our joy in the midst of trials and persecution. He is with us.

Listen to these words by Charles Spurgeon:

“The refiner is never far away from the mouth of the furnace when His gold is in the fire”

 

We the remnant are His gold and He is our refiner.

Keep this in mind this as we join with many other like minded believers around the world to celebrate Him and His influence over our lives. There are those who are clamouring to be invited to all the A list parties; wanting to be seen with the right crowd to enhance their social status. Is this not the operating system of the Pharisees?

We must strengthen our resistance and maintain our vigilance as the structures of darkness would use this season of celebration to hinder our forward momentum in His Kingdom by eroding our faith in Him.

But where would we go the remnant of God? We are in Him and He is in us. We are His prisoners like Paul declared.

Numbers 6 : 24-26

24 “The LORD bless you and keep you; 25 the LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;

26 the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” ‘
