The Bone of My Bone.

20140615_150700Believe me, this is a truth:
Destiny is God’s original plan for an individual. Destiny is God’s perfect will.
Life is controlled by the principle/force of DESTINY. No devil in hell can stop you from achieving anything that is in your destiny…and no angel in heaven can help you to achieve anything that is not in your destiny.

You can date a person for 15 years but if they’re not in your destiny as your spouse, they’ll walk away from you. It’s not because they’re wicked. No. They are not part of God’s original plan for you.

Personally, I have met a couple of God fearing, beautiful and very encouraging sisters…Just like Prophet Samuel who hastily concluded that Jesse’s first son was God’s choice of a king because of his qualities, I had also jumped at exciting conclusions that ‘this is the bone of my bone’ and often I will watch God separate me from the people I love so dearly. I used to cry and get heartbroken when I didn’t understand DESTINY but when I understood, I learnt to let go and hold on to God’s perfect will.

I have also met a couple of guys that I thought “Hey, with these guys we gonna shake the world together” and just when I least expected, they’re gone; gone forever: RiP Richard Donald (OGB); RiP Jane…It was hard accepting the reality that you guys were gone forever until I understood DESTINY. And to my friends who became strangers, its not our fault that we hardly say ‘hello’ these days, destiny was at work. Destiny can change us but we can’t change Destiny.

Most of the people who walked away from us wouldn’t have walked away if they had the powers not to walk away. It was the force of destiny that brought us together, it is also the force of destiny that tore us apart…

…to be continued.

HAVE YOU EVER MESSED UP IN LIFE, YOU MAY BE A FEW MILES AWAY FROM A GENERATIONAL RELEVANCE IF YOU PATIENTLY READ THIS IN JUST 5 MINUTES.

Image“Nobody wanna employ somebody who has no experience.”

I remember perambulating the streets of Accra, from Dansoman to Mamprobi, From Mamprobi to Spintex Road, confident in my clean degree in Biochemistry and hoping to employed by any medical laboratory. From hospital to hospital I got the same response: “Sorry Charles, you have nice varsity grades but you have no experience in practice yet.” The last place I tried was at a Chinese Hospital opposite Mataheko Pharmacy in Accra. The Chinese medical director looked at me for a while and said: “Nobody wanna employ somebody who has no experience.”

I went home that day and made up my mind to divorce Biochemistry but I did not dump the words of that Chinese doctor. I was just another young Nigerian varsity graduate who has more ‘Responsibilities than Opportunities’. I’m the first born of a family who looks up to me. I needed a job, I had a degree but the system wants somebody with EXPERIENCE. Worries stimulated Tears and my tears had a sweet romance with my cheek and I fell asleep with pains.
In my dream I saw a job advert that read: “Wanted! Wanted! A Messed Up Life is Urgently Wanted to Inspire an Expiring Generation. Qualifications: The More your Experiences, The More Qualified You Are.”

I woke up that morning and screamed to my flat mate: “Hey! I’ve got a job! Thank God I’ve got a past. My ‘painful past’ just qualified me for a ‘gainful future’.” I danced around and today, I’m still dancing.

Hello friends, I shared this to help you transform the mess in your life to a message. I shared this to help you see the gain behind your pain. This generation is hungry. Believe me. White and Black, Young and Old, this generation is thirsty for Inspiration. They’re getting tired of bogus motivation, they crave for a Godly inspiration. Its time to stop feeling bad about your painful past and transform it into a gainful future. Your experiences have qualified you for this Generational employment. Get Up and Get Busy! You’re Needed by an entire generation!

GOD IS NOT INVOLVED.

“…Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD WAS NOT IN THE WIND. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD WAS NOT IN THE EARTHQUAKE. (1 Kings 19:11b)

Beloved, We have found ourselves in a generation that confuses noise with the Holy Presence of Jehovah. The noisier our church service, the more anointed we think it is. The noisier the preacher, the more ‘powerful’ we think he is. We are bored by chosen teachers of the word. We want them ‘hot and quick‘. We want them like Fire but  “After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.” (1st Kings 19:12) I’ve never seen a generation that is so familiar with ‘FIRE’ like ours yet so cold in our inner members. We have been carried away in the wind, earthquake and fire of this generation. What on earth happened to our quite times? That quite moment of the day we dedicate to knowing God more. Has it not been replaced with one FIRE FOR FIRE PROPHETIC SERVICE or the other? Who will remind us that God is not in most of these strange fires burning on the pentecostal altars in Africa? Who will teach us that God might be in that gentle whisper echoing in our souls?

The problem of the church in Africa is not lack of fire on the altar but presence of strange fire on the altar. We are living in one of the most deceived generations.
We mistake rhymes for rhema. We have been deceived to believe God is in every WIND, FIRE and EARTHQUAKE. We have lied to ourselves that: “If it is loud, then it carries the cloud“. what a lie! We have quickly forgotten that empty cans are potential noise makers. No wonder we have more empty hands that are been laid on empty heads. What an empty generation! Worse than this deception is our complacency. We really don’t care. After all, the wind is breaking the mountains in our lives and shattering the rocks on our paths. But little do we know that God’s will for us is to be supernaturally empowered to be able to say to the mountains: “Be thou removed” and the mountains will respect themselves and not just some strange wind tearing the mountains apart. A torn apart mountain today can come together tomorrow. That’s why your challenges seemed to dissolve after an encounter with one of those ‘prophetic winds’ and then later comes back. The wind tears the mountain but YOUR FAITH moves the mountain.

Enough of this ‘windy’ wave blowing across our pulpits in Africa. Enough of the focus on the noise and strange fires. Enough! Wake Up Church! Wake up from this slumber! God is not always in the Wind, fires and Earthquake. Be careful of getting involved with what God is not involved with. Stop looking for God where He is not. Get back to your silent closets, He is there! Get back to your personal prayer altars, He is there! ITS TIME TO GET ALONE WITH GOD for the perilous times are here! Peace!

THE REVIVAL FIRE

Image

Hello dear friends of Charles Awuzie Ministries, this article came from a beloved friend and a great revivalist, Brother Dan. It blessed my life and I am bringing it to you in hope that it will stir up the fire of revival in you.

Three weeks ago, we laid Steve Hill’s earthly tent to rest. It is fitting that his burial plot is near David Wilkerson and Leonard Ravenhill. These three men ran so closely together and were used so mightily in the past century. All three finished well!

Steve was privileged to be part of two incredible moves of God in Argentina and Pensacola, but he always contended that the greatest move of God yet was before us, not behind us. Now his leg of the race is over. He has joined that crowd of witnesses and will see the next revival from heaven’s vantage point.

This next leg of the race is ours. As I run, I am more stirred for revival now more than ever. I am believing for one more great outpouring of His Spirit in these last days. I trust I’m not alone.

Some might say, “We don’t need revival,” or, “God will not bless America with another move of God while we continue our slide further and further away from Him.” (Trust me, I get the emails.) Friend, this is precisely why we need revival!

Revival is not God’s award for our righteousness. It’s His answer for our unrighteousness!

I understand there are a lot of different thoughts on revival. Like so many words we use in Christianity, revival carries different definitions for different people. Some see it as a series of special meetings in a church. Others think it is an emotional outbreak devoid of true spirituality. Some have messaged me to inform me that the word revival is not in the Bible or that we shouldn’t seek it but rather seek God. We use the same word but mean different things.

For me, revival means something special. Before revival touched my life, I was a backslidden, lukewarm, apathetic, complacent sinner who was quite comfortable going to church for my religious experience on Sunday while I did as I pleased starting Monday. After graduating from high school in 1994, I made up my mind: I was done with church and through with God. I was on my way out of the church, just as the Spirit of the Lord was coming into the church.

In March of 1996, I stopped running from God and ran to Him. I walked down to the altar of a church and finally surrendered. It was my Damascus Road experience. God finally got my attention. He spoke, I listened, and I’ve never been the same since!

For the past 18 years, I’ve devoted my life to preaching the gospel—that’s revival!

Let me define it further.

Revival Is Rebirth

The surest sign that revival is in your midst is the salvation of lost souls. It was revival when 3,000 were saved on the Day of Pentecost. It was revival when hundreds of thousands were saved during the First and Second Great Awakenings. It was revival when 150,000 walked down the aisles of Brownsville Assembly.

Any time lost sons and daughters call on the name of the Lord and are reborn, that’s revival!

Revival Is a Return

When wayward saints begin to abandon their religious ways and return to true relationship with the Lord, that’s revival!

Religion has always been man’s attempt to come close to God, but revival is God coming close to man.

Many have experienced the joy of salvation that comes with rebirth. Unfortunately, over time many allow that joy to fade. Often what begins in the spirit ends in the flesh. We don’t pray like we used to. We don’t share our faith like we used to. We don’t grieve over sin like we used to. We start to lean upon ourselves and no longer lean upon our Savior.

Thankfully, the Lord keeps the doors open for those trapped in the prison of religion to step out and return to Him.

Revival Is Repentance

Without repentance, there can be no revival. Today many attempt to cheapen and redefine the meaning of repentance. They contend it has no place in the life of the believer except to simply change one’s mind.

Friend, Jesus began His ministry with one message: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” In His last address to the seven churches in Revelation, seven times He says, “Repent!” Let us not minor on something Jesus majored on!

After commending the church at Ephesus for all the good things they were doing, Jesus rebukes them by saying, “I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first” (Rev. 2:4-5, NIV).

He didn’t say, “I need you to change your mind about your ways.” He said, “I want you to change your ways! Come back to Me. Fall in love with Me once again.”

I assure you that revival entered the church at Ephesus the moment they heard His words and repented of their ways.

If you are away from God or have sin in your life, I urge you to take heed of these grace-filled words. Repent! Turn away from your sin, and turn toward your Savior. When you do, that’s revival!

Revival Is Refreshing

I’m writing this while I’m looking out the window at the fresh blossoms on the trees in my front yard. Spring is in the air. It’s a welcome and refreshing sight after a long, cold winter. Everyone in my neighborhood seems to be happier now than they were a few weeks ago. Why? New life is refreshing.

Peter called out to a crowd of onlookers in Acts 3:19, “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”

When we find ourselves stuck in the sickness of our sins or robbed of life from our religious ways, we can turn back to God and take a drink from the fount that never runs out. That’s revival!

Like spring, refreshing comes with excitement and exuberance. Yes, people get emotional. I, for one, do not know how one can be inwardly refreshed without it being outwardly expressed. I welcome it in the church. After all, we are God’s chosen, not His frozen!

Revival Is Restoration

When families and relationships are restored, that’s revival. When your identity in Christ is restored, that’s revival. When things that have been lost or stolen are restored, that’s revival.

Jesus said that He came to seek and save that which was lost. He wasn’t just speaking about saving you from the fires of hell, but to the restoration as sons and daughters of God. For Jesus, the focus is not on where I come from but on where I’m going. He pulled you from the fire to set you on fire!

Revival Is Reformation

True revival cannot be contained. Revival fills up the saints and spills out into the streets. It finds sinners in the highways and byways. It affects the atmosphere of communities and cultures. True revival brings reformation. That’s revival!

A series of meetings in your church will do little to transform your city. But let the fires of true revival enter into your church house, and it won’t be long before it touches every house. Revival may start within an individual or church, but like a spark to a dry field, that fire cannot be contained; otherwise, it will not be sustained.

God’s purpose for revival is the forgiveness of our sins and the healing of our land. Currently our sins are plenty, and they stand before us. Our land is sick and in need of healing. The answer is not going to be found in a person or a place but in a position.

God gave His people a pattern for finding that position in 2 Chronicles 7:14. He said, “Humble yourself, pray, seek My face, and repent of your own wicked ways.”

I’ve experienced revival in my life, and I’m ready to experience it once again in our nation. I’m on my knees, and now you know what I’m praying for.

Daniel K. Norris is an evangelist who worked alongside Steve Hill bringing the message of revival and repentance to the nations. Together, they co-hosted a broadcast called From the Frontlines. Norris also hosts the Collision Youth Conference that is broadcast all over the world.

Jesus was wounded in 7 parts of His Holy Body to heal 7 areas of our lives…

(1) His Eyes: At Gethsemane, Jesus cried out blood for the healing of our sight, visions and dreams. Medical science calls this “Subconjunctival hemorrhage”, a rare situation where optic blood vessels are wounded. Now the blind can say “I can see!”.

(2) His Face: At Caiaphas house for trial, Jesus was slapped by soldiers, fist beaten and spat on the face…His face was wounded for the healing of our sick image…So it doesn’t matter how bad your public image is, Jesus has paid for the redemption of your image.

(3) Head: Do you remember that crown of thorns placed on the head of Jesus? That must have been dead sore. But His head had to be wounded to do two things: To heal our mental faculties thus setting us free from psychiatric prisons…And also to restore our headship, dominion and authority.

(4) His Back: They whipped the back of Jesus to fulfil the Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy that “By His Stripes, you are healed.” So His back was wounded for your physical healing. HIV, Cancer, Flu and all diseases were taken care of by the wounds on His back.

(5) His Hands: When they nailed His hands to the cross, He healed the works of our hands.

(6) His Feet: When they nailed His feet to the cross, He healed our steps and walk. Henceforth, the steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord.

(7) His body: When He hung on the cross, they pierced the side of His body with a spear…Two things happened: Marriages were healed and also That was when the church was born…Remember, when the first Adam slept, God opened the side of his body and brought forth Eve…When Jesus slept on the cross, the side of His body was opened with a spear for the healing of marriages, relationships and families…and to activate the operation of God’s kingdom on earth.

The cost of our salvation is unimaginable…Cherish it!

Strictly for ministers in the 5-fold…Invasion of truth!

Don’t read this truth if you’re not one of us…

Invasion of Truth…
(strictly for ministers in the 5-fold)

Can I have your attention sir/ma:
I am afraid of what I am about Sharing right now…Listen…The market we call ‘my church’ is about folding up…This market has been selling on the platform of lies…But I see an invasion of truth…Very soon, the flock will get so accustomed with our gimmicks, packages and fund raising rhemas(revelations) that each time you go that direction, they will simply walk away from the hall…Very soon, the people we pay to act like blind, lame, deaf/dumb people in crusades will get born again…the spirit of God will convict them and they’ll repent and start exposing their ex-employers with facts and evidences…Not too far from now, the fear of God will sweep through the pulpits like a mighty wind and the pastors you once did those secret stuffs with will repent again and then you’ll be in trouble cos they have your datae…The only platform that will sell will be truth…When you need money for a project, for the sheer fear of God, say it…Don’t use prophecy to extort money from unsuspecting worshipers…If you need a ticket back home, be humble enough to tell the church that you can’t pay your way back home…ask them to help you and they’ll help you…Let’s do it like Apostle Paul would do it…Paul would tell the churches in Ephesus, Galatia, Colosia to remember to send help to him on the mission field…He never used ‘thus says the Lord’ to take their money…that would have been spiritual theft…*You have not cos you don’t ask*…Let’s get real…May God capture His church again before rapture…I pray!

the other side of the coin…the other part of Christianity you were shielded from…

The Christianity nobody wanna preach…Don’t read if your heart can’t carry this truth…

“And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bounds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; of whom the world was not worthy: they wandered in deserts and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.”(HEBREWS 11: 36-38,KJV)

This is how Christianity was established…it was established on pains, persecutions, afflictions, temptations…Paul went ahead to pen thus…”Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution”(2nd Timothy 3:12, KJV)

…Beloved, this is the other side of our faith that was hidden from us…no wonder when divorce, pains, scandals, hardship, blackmails etc came hard on us, we felt we have been forsaken by God.

…In fact, its so bad that any minister of the gospel who has no car yet is seen as not anointed…Away with this generation and her ‘bread and butter’ Christianity…The kingdom of God is not in meat and bread…If you’re in, then get ready to take up your own cross…Surely, there’re pains, there’re tears, and there’re persecutions but ‘none of these can be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us'(Romans 8:18)

…How much you suffer for the SAKE of this Kingdom determines the STAKEs that this Kingdom offers you…Only men with this understanding will launch into the villages again for crazy evangelism…Step Up! (from a broken spirit)
