One or Two!

The news channels and social media are bombarded by everyday occurrences of violence, earthquakes, cyclones, disaster, famine and pestilences which are all undeniable evidence of the signs described by our Lord Jesus in Matthew 24.

The number of people who are turning away from sound-minded doctrines adds to the signs of the end times. You do not need to be a scholar to realise that the similarity between the facts and the Bible prophesies is evident and undebatable.

If you are on the same page with me here, there is another point worthy of your attention. Who will be able to escape the terror that is to come?

Before ascending to Heaven, Jesus said: "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8

Stop and think for a moment.  What power will be received? The ability to become His witnesses, but not only that. When you receive the Holy Spirit, you become one with God. "I and My Father are one." John 10:30.

That is what happened to Jesus and that is what He wanted for His disciples and for every one of us: that we become one with Him. "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.  And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are." John 17:9-11

This prayer was not only for His disciples then, but also for you and me as well. That is the whole point. The Holy Spirit is the only one who can make us be one with God. With the Holy Spirit, you and God will be one. Without the Holy Spirit, you and God will be two.

"Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us-eternal life." 1 John 2:24-25

There is no greater miracle than this: the Son, the Father and you become one! I want to invite you all to join us during this Fast of Daniel as if it is your first one. Apply yourself as never before to achieve higher heights — an entirely new level of communion with God— The True Revival.

People cannot see God: He is Spirit. Thus, He wants to use you to show His Glory through your life.  As well as this, think with me! What evil, trials or tribulations will be able to stand against you victoriously? None!

The choice is yours: you and God can be two or one. You decide!

God bless you
