It’s Time for Upgrade ( by Fenny West)

It’s Time for Upgrade


Time to be upgraded 

Time to be promoted 

Time to be uplifted

From decadence to prominence

From stagnation to progression

From retrogression to acceleration. 

If God says yes, who can say no? 

No principality, power or foe. 

It is a day of divine favour

Away with any fruitless Labour. 

It’s time to soar on eagles wings

It’s Time to dance and sing. 

It’s time to sing a New Song. 

And this song shall be very long. 

I shall laugh at calamity. 

I shall laugh at infirmity. 

I shall laugh at mediocrity

I shall laugh at poverty. 

I shall laugh at timidity

I shall laugh at decadence

I shall laugh at offense 

I shall laugh at weakness

I shall laugh at sickness 

I shall laugh at barrenness 

I shall laugh at brokenness 

I shall laugh at disdain

I shall laugh at the rain

I shall laugh at any storm. 

I am not called to conform

Because I have been transformed 

All because I have the Son. 

It’s time for the freedom of freedoms.

It’s time to terminate serfdom. 

It’s time to make manifest God’s Kingdom. 

I’m a New Creation 

Of the Holy nation. 

I am of the Royal Priesthood 

Let this be unequivocally understood. 

He made me a priest and a king

for His praises to ring.

There shall be no compromise 

Because it is time to arise. 

It’s time to arise from slumber

God will stop every stopper. 

He will demonstrate His wonder. 

I shall not go under for going over. 

It’s time to walk on water. 

It’s time to go from strength to strength, 

From glory to glory and from faith to faith. 

The kingdom of God suffers violence

But the violent take it by force. 

It’s Time for prosperity

It’s time for property. 

It’s time for witty inventions 

It’s time for God’s glorification. 

It’s time for resurrection 

It’s time for restoration 

It’s time for increment 

It’s time for accomplishment. 

It’s time for a change of story 

It’s time for great glory.

 

Joseph was Upgraded

Joseph’s Rise to Power

37   So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants.

38   And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?”

39   Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you.

40   You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.”

41   And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42   Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43   And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44   Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

45   And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

46   Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

Gen41

Jacob was Upgraded

Wrestling with God

22   And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok.

23   He took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had.

24   Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day.

25   Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him.

26   And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”

27   So He said to him, “What is your name?” He said, “Jacob.”

28   And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

29   Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your name, I pray.” And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My name?” And He blessed him there.

30   So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”

31   Just as he crossed over Penuel the sun rose on him, and he limped on his hip.

32  Therefore to this day the children of Israel do not eat the muscle that shrank, which is on the hip socket, because He touched the socket of Jacob’s hip in the muscle that shrank. Gen32:22-32

Rachel was upgraded

The Children of Jacob

31   When the LORD saw that Leah was unloved, He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren.

Gen29:31

Genesis 30:

1     Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, “Give me children, or else I die!”

2                                                                                                                       And Jacob’s anger was aroused against Rachel, and he said, “Am I in the place of God, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?”

Gen30

Jacob was upgraded despite Laban’s scheming

42   But when the flocks were feeble, he did not put them in; so the feebler were Laban’s and the stronger Jacob’s.

43   Thus the man became exceedingly prosperous, and had large flocks, female and male servants, and camels and donkeys.

Abraham was Upgraded

11   Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.

12   Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom.

13   But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD.

14   And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are — northward, southward, eastward, and westward;

15   for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.

16   And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered.

17   Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”

18   Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to the LORD.

Gen13:11-18

Abraham and Sarah were Promoted

Genesis 21: Isaac Is Born

1     And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken.

2     For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

3     And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him — whom Sarah bore to him — Isaac.

4     Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.

5     Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

6     And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.”

7     She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”

Joshua was upgraded

Joshua 1: God’s Commission to Joshua

1     After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying:

2     “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them — the children of Israel.

3     Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.

4     From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory.

5     No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.

6     Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

7     Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

8     This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

9                                                                                                                       Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Jabez was Upgraded

9     Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”

10   And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

1Chro4:9-10

Hannah was Upgraded

Samuel Is Born and Dedicated

19   Then they rose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD, and returned and came to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.

20                                                                                                                     So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the LORD.”

David was upgraded- anointed to be the next king of Israel

11   And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.”

12   So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”

13   Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah.

1Sam16:

David and Israel were upgraded

48   So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49   Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.

50   So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.

51   Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.

52   Now the men of Israel and Judah arose and shouted, and pursued the Philistines as far as the entrance of the valley and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell along the road to Shaaraim, even as far as Gath and Ekron.

53   Then the children of Israel returned from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their tents.

54   And David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his armor in his tent.

1Sam17:

5     So David went out wherever Saul sent him, and behaved wisely. And Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul’s servants.

1Sam.18:5

Rachel was Upgraded

22   Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb.

23   And she conceived and bore a son, and said, “God has taken away my reproach.”

24   So she called his name Joseph, and said, “The LORD shall add to me another son.”

Gen30:22—24

Elizabeth and Zachariah were upgraded

John’s Birth Announced to Zacharias

5     There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.

6     And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

7     But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.

36   Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

37   For with God nothing will be impossible.”

38   Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39   Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah,

40   and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.

41   And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

42   Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!

43   But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44   For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

45   Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

Luke1:39-45

Esther was upgraded; became Queen in a foreign land

15   Now when the turn came for Esther the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her as his daughter, to go in to the king, she requested nothing but what Hegai the king’s eunuch, the custodian of the women, advised. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her.

16   So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.

17   The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

18   Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.

Mordecai was upgraded

Esther 6: The King Honors Mordecai

1     That night the king could not sleep. So one was commanded to bring the book of the records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.

2     And it was found written that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs, the doorkeepers who had sought to lay hands on King Ahasuerus.

3     Then the king said, “What honor or dignity has been bestowed on Mordecai for this?” And the king’s servants who attended him said, “Nothing has been done for him.”

4     So the king said, “Who is in the court?” Now Haman had just entered the outer court of the king’s palace to suggest that the king hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.

5     The king’s servants said to him, “Haman is there, standing in the court.” And the king said, “Let him come in.”

6     So Haman came in, and the king asked him, “What shall be done for the man whom the king delights to honor?” Now Haman thought in his heart, “Whom would the king delight to honor more than me?”

7     And Haman answered the king, “For the man whom the king delights to honor,

8     let a royal robe be brought which the king has worn, and a horse on which the king has ridden, which has a royal crest placed on its head.

9     Then let this robe and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that he may array the man whom the king delights to honor. Then parade him on horseback through the city square, and proclaim before him: ‘Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!’ “

10   Then the king said to Haman, “Hurry, take the robe and the horse, as you have suggested, and do so for Mordecai the Jew who sits within the king’s gate! Leave nothing undone of all that you have spoken.”

11   So Haman took the robe and the horse, arrayed Mordecai and led him on horseback through the city square, and proclaimed before him, “Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!”

12   Afterward Mordecai went back to the king’s gate. But Haman hurried to his house, mourning and with his head covered.

13   When Haman told his wife Zeresh and all his friends everything that had happened to him, his wise men and his wife Zeresh said to him, “If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, is of Jewish descent, you will not prevail against him but will surely fall before him.”

Ruth and Naomi were upgraded

Descendants of Boaz and Ruth

13   So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife; and when he went in to her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bore a son.

14   Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed be the LORD, who has not left you this day without a close relative; and may his name be famous in Israel!

15   And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.”

16   Then Naomi took the child and laid him on her bosom, and became a nurse to him.

17   Also the neighbor women gave him a name, saying, “There is a son born to Naomi.” And they called his name Obed. He is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

21   Salmon begot Boaz, and Boaz begot Obed;

22   Obed begot Jesse, and Jesse begot David.

Christ upgraded us

21   For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

2Cor5::21:19

19   Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

1Cor6:

I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

17   Therefore ” Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”

18   ” I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

2Cor6:16-18

27To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.Col1:27

A Heavenly Inheritance

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1Pet1:3

6that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.Phile1:6

Romans 8: Free from Indwelling Sin

1     There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

2     For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom8:1-2

Believers Are Salt and Light

13   “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14   “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15   Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

16   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.Matt5:13-15

6     and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen Rev1:6

9     For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

1 Cor3:9

The Chosen Stone and His Chosen People

4     Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,

5     you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

9     But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

10   who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

1Pet2:9-10

10   For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.Eph2:10

10   And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”

Rev5:10

17For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)Ro5:17

5     “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

6     If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

7     If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

8By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. John15:5-8

Made to Last ( by Fenny West)

Made to Last

Autumn Floral Heart — Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis

Whether you leave or cleave 
All the choice is yours
Let not the foe deceive 
Today, I counsel you

We were made for one another
And made to last
Let none put asunder 
What He made to last 

Why do you want to play 
a fast one only to lose? 
Love endures long 
when it is strong;

It Pays back good 
for all that is wrong
And this is the God-kind of love. 

to make our song

So my love think again
Think again in spite of the rain
What you see is passing away
It’s transient, not come to stay. 

The true meaning of love is to give and take
for better or worse, none to forsake
We’re glued and none can pull apart
So put the past behind for a New start 

Yes, we can…

 

The Day of Laughter Comes… ( by Fenny West)

The Day of Laughter

The Day of laughter

Comes to those who trust God;

those who hold on to His Word

They may laugh last but they laugh best

Suddenly, their table is turned for the better

Suddenly the testimony comes after the test.

The Day of laughter

Comes to those who have been written off; past their sell-by date;

Those told by the doctor: ‘Go home. No hope.’

Go and prepare yourself for death.’

Suddenly, there is a reprieve, remission, retreat,

Resurgence, revival, and resurrection.

Just like it happened to Hezekiah when God gave him15 more years

2Ki20:6 I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.'”

Just like it happened to Zachariah when John the Baptist was born.

‘Elisabeth’s son was born. Her friends and family were happy. They thought that the baby should have the same name as his father, Zacharias. But Elisabeth

said that his name should be John. Everyone was surprised.’  

                          

Just like it happened to Hannah when her anguish turned into joy at the birth of Samuel.

Rebekah in joy – double for her trouble

Rachel’s Joy when Joseph was born

Jacob’s Joy and laughter when he suddenly heard that Joseph was still alive and a PM

Just like it happened to Joseph When he went from prison to the palace;

From prisoner to Prime Minister within 24 hours;

 

Esau kissed Jacob

Just like Jacob who was expecting the worst from his cheated brother ( Esau) but rather received a kiss and pardon.

Just like it happened to Job When his fortune was restored

Just like it happened to Mephibosheth, who was summoned to the palace from his dark, dingy hideout

To the king’s palace where he ate on the king’s table as his sons.

   

Just like it happened to Abraham and Sarah whom God gave laughter- Isaac- in their old age.

Just like it happened to Israel- the day they left Egypt, plundering the Egyptians and finding freedom after over 400 years of captivity.

Just like Jabez, who had been dogged with repeated calamity was suddenly greeted with favour, prosperity, protection and an enlarged coast.

 

Like Job who had lost everything, going from riches to rags, receiving restoration that was superabundant and mind-blowing.

Just like the day Lazarus was raised back to life- the disaster turned into laughter.

The Day Jesus was born

like the day Jesus was raised back to life, there was great joy in Jerusalem and the world over, even in heaven.

Just like the day there was a sudden revival and a collapsed economy and starving people bounced back and prices fell to ridiculous levels and there was plenty to eat. End of famine in the Land.

Just like the day the decree was signed giving the Jews freedom from those who wanted them exterminated. The day of laughter came to Israel when the state was created after many years of statelessness.

Yes, this day of laughter does come to those who keep their eyes on Jesus, regardless of the dark times they pass through. Yea though they walk through the valley of the shadow of death, they need not fear any evil because the Lord is with them. And if God be for them who can be against them?

He is working everything together for their good.

Captivity led captive

 

Psalms 126: A Joyful Return to Zion A Song of Ascents.
1 When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, ” The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad.
4 Bring back our captivity, O LORD, As the streams in the South.
5 Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.
6 He who continually goes forth weeping, Bearing seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.

JULY ( by Fenny West)


July

Joint – heir with Christ, Just

Unstoppable, unlimited, unquenchable 

Loved with an Everlasting love 

You, you are, yeah

J

Joint – heir with Christ.

If you are in Christ, you are an heir of God and Joint-heir with Christ. It means everything He owns, you own. All things are yours. Everything Christ accomplished through His death and resurrection belongs to you. You are not a beggar for what is yours. All you need to do is to know all that you have and enforce the victory won for you. Prophesy with the Word of God in regard to any area of your life that you want a change. Direct your life with your mouth. Say what He had said concern you, regardless of how you feel or what you see in the natural. We walk by faith and not by sight. We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. Because the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are not seen are eternal. This is why we do not lose hope. Against natural hope, we believe in supernatural hope. We call those things which be not as though they were until they come to realization and actualization.

Furthermore, you need to remind yourself that you are just in the eyes of God. When He looks at you, He does not see what you used to be but He sees Jesus. You are justified and accepted in the beloved. As far as the ease is from the west, so far He has removed your transgression from you. And as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for you.

There is therefore now, no more condemnation over you. Old things have passed away and all things have become new. You are more than a conqueror and an overcomer.

U

Unlimited  In Christ, you are unlimited. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. God is able to do exceeding abundantly, far above what you can ask or think or even dream of.

Unconquerable

Christ disarmed principalities and powers for you.

Undeniable

In Christ, you deny yourself of what is not good for you but you are undeniable in respect to all that Christ purchased for you in exchange for His blood when He died on Calvary’s Cross.

Loved with an Everlasting love; unfailing and unconditional love  This divine love; agape love. 

Y

You are. This is what you are, yeah. 

We Need Each Other ( by Fenny West)


We Need Each Other

We need each other, like brother and sister
like the gloves and the hand; hand-in-hand -all weather
together we can make the world go round
overcoming any mount, mound and become sound.
We belong to each other, no matter the colour

As the black and white keys on a piano.
Let’s make good music, gel and flow
You have what I need; I need what you have.
Why then should we keep apart and starve?
We need each other to go on higher.

In agreement can we be broken?
Let us share our gifts and be open.
Together we can stand and withstand,
And disarm any disuniting wicked band.
Together we can grow stronger and glow better.

Fenny West

30 How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them? Deut 32:30

6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Gen11:6

Psalms 133: Blessed Unity of the People of God A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing — Life forevermore. Ps133:

Acts 2: Coming of the Holy Spirit
1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts2:1-4

24 So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said: “Lord, You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them,
25 who by the mouth of Your servant David have said: ‘ Why did the nations rage, And the people plot vain things?
26 The kings of the earth took their stand, And the rulers were gathered together Against the LORD and against His Christ.’
27 “For truly against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together
28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose determined before to be done.
29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,
30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”
31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Acts4:24-31

The Philippian Jailer Saved
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.
28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”
29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.
30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.
34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.Acts16:25-34

7 Then the LORD said to Gideon, “By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go, every man to his place.”
8 So the people took provisions and their trumpets in their hands. And he sent away all the rest of Israel, every man to his tent, and retained those three hundred men. Now the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.
9 It happened on the same night that the LORD said to him, “Arise, go down against the camp, for I have delivered it into your hand.12 Now the Midianites and Amalekites, all the people of the East, were lying in the valley as numerous as locusts; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the seashore in multitude.
17 And he said to them, “Look at me and do likewise; watch, and when I come to the edge of the camp you shall do as I do:
18 When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you also blow the trumpets on every side of the whole camp, and say, ‘The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!’ “
19 So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outpost of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just as they had posted the watch; and they blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers that were in their hands.
20 Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers — they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing — and they cried, “The sword of the LORD and of Gideon!”
21 And every man stood in his place all around the camp; and the whole army ran and cried out and fled.
22 When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man’s sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.

Judges 7:7-9,17-22

Ephesians 4: Walk in Unity
1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,
3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;
5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Eph4:1-6

 

It Is Finished ( by Fenny West)

It Is Finished,

Completed,

Accomplished,

Done by the Son. 

It is a done deal. 

He did it once and for all. 

He did all He could do-

All that is necessary. 

And He did it for you. 

No need to beg or cry. 

What the law could not do,

What the blood of bulls and goats could not do, Jesus did; the blood of the eternal covenant did. 

There is now, no more condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. The old has gone and the New has come. All things are yours. You are an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. Everything He accomplished was for you, in regard to your health, supply, support, family, finance, relationships, ministry, purpose, and assignment. 

It’s time to appropriate. 

It’s time to dominate. 

It’s time to meditate. 

It’s time to decree. 

And see it established. 

Use the currency of faith. 

Decree like a king you are. 

Where the Word of a king is, there is power 

Internalise and vocalize the Word with authority. 

Say,… “For He had said,…. therefore I boldly say… “

The lines have fallen for you in pleasant places. You have a goodly heritage. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places. Abraham’s blessings are yours. You are the head and not the tail. You have been daily loaded with benefits to enjoy. You are a citizen of Zion. You have been healed by His stripes. You have been brought into a wealthy place.. Say to yourself:”Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not His benefits. 

He has forgiven me all my sins;

Healed me of all my diseases ;

Redeemed my life from destruction;

Crowned me with love and compassion;

Satisfied my mouth with good things

So that my youth is renewed like the Eagle 🦅 

I am blessed in the city and in the countryside. I am blessed in my going out and in my coming in. Whatever  I lay my hands to do is blessed. I am a blessing to God, Church, my family, my community and my generation, even generations to come. Christ in me, my hope of glory.
