He who has my commandment and keeps them

He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?” Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:21‭-‬27 NKJV

May this word sink deep into your hearts and spirits. The word of God is truth, stay close to him by obeying the nudges to read (even when you don’t want to) and resist ignoring the Holy Spirit. HE dwells in us when we allow him.

Pray right now for your obedience and for the Father you dwell within you in uour own words.


ST. LUKE 24 : 13- 40

Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was [e]seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.

17 And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you [f]walk and are sad?”

18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”

19 And He said to them, “What things?”

So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”

25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He [g]expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

The Disciples’ Eyes Opened

28 Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and He [h]indicated that He would have gone farther. 29 But they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.” And He went in to stay with them.

30 Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” 33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, 34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” 35 And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was [i]known to them in the breaking of bread.

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

36 Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.” 37 But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit. 38 And He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.”

40 [j]When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, “Have you any food here?” 42 So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish [k]and some honeycomb. 43 And He took it and ate in their presence.

It is indeed a lengthy passage tpday but it is needed. HE IS RISEN!


And as I was in prayer on this scripture Jesus spoke to me, because he is alive Let him be alive in you. Let him be alive in your workplace, in your school environment, in your projects, in your ministries, in your simple everyday interactions. Because he lives let him live in you.


The perfect Sacrifice

Isaiah 53:4-6 King James Version

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Good Friday was just yesterday, let’s ponder on these verses that were written almost as a love story to us reminding us of what our LORD AND SAVIOUR has borne for us.

He was wounded for our transgressions – sins that we know are wrong but still do anyway. Think of all the times you knew it was wrong yet you did it anyway and then think of Jesus, thank him for bearing what we wouldn’t have been able to.

He was bruised for our iniquities – our wickedness and sinful nature.

Sometimes even unknown to us we operate in wickedness but our LORD AND SAVIOUR Jesus Christ bore that as well for OUR SAKES.

I know and understand It’s easy to hear these things and flow through the ressurection weekend as normal, but how about this time you actually ponder these things in your heart.

I know for certain I’ve messed up and pondering on the fact that the things I messed up with Jesus bore that for me is absolutely crazy to me. I don’t deserve it but that is what this whole weekend reminds us of. The very things we messed up with just recently Jesus covered all of that through this sacrifice.

May we learn to ponder on this with intentionality rather than seeing it as another commercialised holiday event or occasion, OR seeing it as more of a mini vacation from work or school.

PONDER THIS: This is the time we get to reflect on the fact that we actually have a saviour Jesus Christ, who came down from the Heavenly realms where he rightfully abides to save US from our own WICKEDNESS. Let us ponder on this this weekend.

Lord we repent of all unspoken sins in Jesus name. We can’t possibly thank you enough for all that you bore as a human here on earth but this morning we say thank you. Thank you for your sacrifice, thank you for your MERCY, your unending, unfailing, full mercy, compassion and love for us. That you would send your son for our filth here on earth, we thank you. BLESS your name and help us to see this time through the eyes of reflection and gratitude, because I truly believe it would bring many of us to tears knowing how much you really bore and how our efforts are but filthy rags, it is all through you. BLESS your name we are turning back to you this morning, amen.

Graceful words of peace

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
Colossians 4:6 NKJV

As Christians we must learn to season our words with salt (added flavour and value) we must watch how we speak to one another and about one another. Gossip in a negative form is unacceptable and nasty towards yourself and the ones you gossip about. It is unacceptable.

As Paul wrote these letters in the new testament his plea was always to keep him in prayer. As believers would’ve witnessed Paul’s journey being persecuted for the sake of Christ, I am sure they were move internally. Let us therefore take this to heart as Christians. It is time for us to pray for things bigger than ourselves, let us pray for the Paul’s of this generation. That those whonare persecuted would be covered by the blood of the lamb and that they will live to experience the fruit of their labour. Let us hold their hands in prayer as they are ostracized for their faith. We are ALL one body in Christ. Let us hold each other’s burdens in PRAYER.

Prayer: Dear Father we cover [name] under your blood and all other Christians that we know of or that we don’t quite know that are being persecuted for your sake. God we reach them in prayer right now in this moment. We send your MINISTERING angels to reach and compass their surroundings even now as we speak. May they feel the influx of your Holy Spirit abiding in the innermost parts of their space. Cover them with the blood of the lamb and deliver them. We ask and cry out on their behalf for deliverance from evil. BLESS their souls for their obedience and faithfulness to your name and may you protect them with a covering that can only come from you. In Jesus name amen.

If you feel to continue to pray about the way you speak about other believers, or a specific person that comes to mind, feel free to.

Psalm 30

Psalm 30King James Version

30 I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.

What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper.

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

This is for you this morning.

Weeping may endure for a night (I see this night symbolic of the dark seasons, the times where things are so in the shadow you can’t see them clearly. This season is dark, may be lonely and may be quiet. But the word says it lasts for the night only. Joy cometh in the morning – joy comes with the light and after every dark season a a light comes, after every period of darkness (such as the night) the sun (the light) comes back around. You can always count on it because God controls the earth and what is in it. Night will always lead back to the day, so be encouraged this morning and use this example in the midst of your “night”, day always comes back around my loves.

Prayer: Father help us in the darkest moments, we lay our agony, discomfort and lonely hearts at your feet. You see us for who we are and we want to see and believe you for who you are as well Your precious word says weeping may endure for a night MY GOD, but JOY cometh in the morning. The morning WILL ALWAYS COME in your name according to your will, so may our mornings come and may be we experience the deep rooted joy of the Lord and the healing that it brings

As astestiminy I can proudly testify that when my father died my night seemed like morning would never come, everything was lonely, dark and miserable but can I tell you that the word is so true? Yes the memory is still there but my love, the seasons change I can now say I am experiencing a joy that only God could’ve brought to me. My life’s circumstances are changing, I am blessed by the Lord and I take no credit whatsoever. This is the season of blessing and I only share his to encourage. – MORNING COMES.
