What is Righteousness?

When the Bible talks about Christians being the righteousness of God in Christ in 1 Corinthians 5:21, it means they have a rightness from God. It’s a quality of being right or righting wrongs. Continue reading “What is Righteousness?”

Say It!—A Christian Hack for Living Better

If you are Christian…

Say it aloud. Say that you have been lifted out of poverty because you have. Say that you have been lifted out of debt; out of defeat; out of bondage and disease. Say it!

If you don’t say it, you won’t see it. Say that the Lord is your wisdom and your sanctification and your redemption and your righteousness.

Refuse to observe lying vanities by keeping mute. Refuse to shudder at the petering bank statements and demand letters, that give a contrary narrative of who you are.

Hold fast to your proclamations for you also have to exercise patience after you have done the will of God.

We are Our Thoughts

There is a way to think that is powerful.

The Bible says, ‘As a person thinks, so is he or she’.* Therefore, we are our thoughts.

However, science shows that human beings have an average of 15,000 thoughts per day. Passive thoughts that just come and go. These passive thoughts can become so entrenched that they determine our habits and eventually run our lives. This is not God’s idea.

God’s idea is for us to think actively. To dominate and determine the thoughts we have. To think purposefully. **

In the end, thinking must be active, not passive for us. You must decide how you think. Instead of letting your mind wander from one thought to the other, decide to think rich, think healthy and think like a you have a large inheritance because the Bible says you do.

If you catch yourself thinking passively today, stop and think with intent.

We are our thoughts.

*Proverbs 23:7

**Philippians 4:8

The Three Ways To Preserve Wealth for Coming Generations

The most numbing thing people– who through diligence and hard work create a fortune–have to face is the prospect of losing it all in the same lifetime. It’s not enough to make a lot to money in this world, the more biblical thing to do is to preserve it for the use of generations that will come after you if Christ continues to tarry. 

There is a scripture that qualifies a good person as having left an inheritance to his children and grandchildren. However, it’s no longer sufficient to leave an inheritance in a bank account these days where inflation or currency devaluations may erode them. As the world economy continues to be tethered to collapse, you are better off leaving your wealth outside the global financial system.

So here are three universal ways to preserve your wealth  

  1. Buy Land
  2. Buy Gold
  3. Buy Art

Keep a third of the wealth you want to pass on to your children in land. Keep another third in gold. Then, keep the final third in collectible art. Lastly, take out an insurance policy on these items to protect them from theft or damage.

This way, you can truly preserve wealth like families who have had wealth in their bloodline for generations. One popular family in Italy, the Orsini family have had their wealth passed from one generation to the other for 900 years and this is how they did it.

Think a third, a third and a third while planning your estate and you are unlikely to go wrong.

Confess the Word

Confess yourself out of depression; out of debt; out of deprivation and scarcity. With the Word of God on your lips, you can reframe your entire existence . Trust me, God has been waiting on you to live the good life and this life starts with your confessions of His Word. I see new levels for you over the next 30, 60 and 90 days.

And please, don’t bother that the change isn’t taking immediate effect in some cases, just keep at it. Your confessions are releasing the wisdom and power of God over the matter; the most potent forces in the universe.

Have a beautiful day!

The State of Our Marriages

Finding-Marriage-in-the-Autumn-of-My-Life-Social-compressor

I have a passion for marriage. But I have an even deeper passion for how marriage is the apt depiction of our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, by our walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, I presuppose that you have been born-again and spirit-filled with the evidence of speaking in tongues. But if you haven’t, please do not be deterred as the intention of this post is to communicate a vitality of the Jesus message as it regards your marriage. Continue reading “The State of Our Marriages”
