Bible Study on Can You Let God Be In Control Of Your Sexiness And Be The Truly Loved And Highly Favored Of The Beloved according to Genesis 1:27-28, Mark 10:6-7, Ephisians 1:4, James 1:14-15

Every silhouettes of your future is determined by the central station of your thoughts. Every shades of perception you see is determined by the central station of perception of your ownself. How do you see yourself? Do you feel sexy? Are you aware that the opposite sex is attracted to your beautiful or handsome face? Are you constantly motivated to show off your curvy body figure or your prose and muscle? Did you even thought of God on your ‘sexy’ gifts from Him?

Many people thinks that when you become a Christian you become ‘unsexy’ and to be refrigerated against contamination and to be delivered from sexual sins. To the contrary, starting from the age of 13 to 14, we naturally start to become sexy for a long time in our lives; when we reach puberty and our old body dies and a new sexy you emerges and you start to notice rainbows of passion and abundance of favors surrounding you. If we are sexy and yet we do not know it, we might feel that don’t know what’s wrong with us. But what if we are not drop dead sexy or jaws dropping gorgeous by world standard, what do we still have to ‘show off’ to make us feel good, loved and cherished? Well God is a just God, He has made you more sexier in other ways that can attract the opposite sex like bees to the honey.

Being sexy is not only the way to populate the earth, to breed and multiply the population and satisfy our sexual desires, instinct and needs. But, it is God’s designed way for man and woman to draw closer, fall in love and have intimate relationships with each other as witnessed in Genesis: 1. 28. And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Although there are some quarters who misuse the 2nd sentenced above to justify their wild sexual activities or polygamy and other poly types in the dictionary. And intentionally ignoring the 1st sentence, which is ‘God blessed them with a semi colon’. Because God wants us to be loved and love our destined partner in life, that is His will.

We are all wired to see sexy from a far and to feel sexy at the back of our eyes and we do not realize it when it come so naturally. For we are all God’s creations, certainly love, sexy and intimacy with our spouse are certainly part of God’s blue print of good pleasures as recorded in Mark: 10. 6. But from the beginning of the creation, Male and female made he them. 7. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife;

On the contrary, bad sexy is from violence, carnage and ego that pulls away from God’s plan and purpose; good sexy is pure and based on God’s love and grace. When bad sexy overcomes good sexy, we might find that sins and lusts becomes part of our lives and grips our sexual drive and immorality as per Genesis: 1. 27. And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

God did not only wants us to only enjoy love and intimacy, rather we made to be victorious in life, overcomers of darkness into his wonderful light. He wants to enjoy us of His good pleasure that He has prepared for us. Foremost, He wants us to receive His grace and mercy abundantly that flows through Christ Jesus as read in Ephesians: 1. 4. even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before him in love: 5. having foreordained us unto adoption as sons through Jesus Christ unto himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6. to the praise of the glory of his grace, which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved: –

When lusts draws us away from God’s love and forces us into the temptations and bondage of sins, inevitably we draw closer to the trap of the enemy that seek to destroy and defeat us. Make no mistake that the flower of lust is sin and the fruits of sin is death according to the Bible in James: 1. 14. but each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. 15. Then the lust, when it hath conceived, beareth sin: and the sin, when it is fullgrown, bringeth forth death.

God is a good God that is loving and caring for His children and God too is a God of second chance, there is no sins so cardinal or so big that God won’t forgive and cleanse, provide we must have a soft heart, repentance and turn around and turn away from our previous sins completely. For God’s mercy and grace knows no bounds where the sky and heaven is the limit. But God requires us to be teachable and mouldable in every aspects of our lives. Beauty for ashes and weakness for strength. Remember the greatest love and Christ is before us and He is always behind us.

Bible Study on Let God Have His Hand In Completing The Perfect Puzzle Of The Destiny Of Our Lives according to Ephisians 4:11-13, Hebrews 11:1-3,33-40

The Bible mentions of perfecting of the saints? Have you heard of beautification of the saints? What does these mean to us as ordinary Christians? In achieving the perfect man in Christ is not about the personal journey of people in this world; but of the Church of Christ and all its members in unison around the world as far as the rising and seeing sun; inspite of differences in nationality, race, crete, ethnic, tribe, status, demographics, culture, tradition, aspiration, belief system, politics, achievements, wealth etc, together reaching spiritual maturity in the Word of God, for we are children of God according to Ephesians: 4. 11. And he gave some [to be] apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12. for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: 13. till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a fullgrown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

Being in the Kingdom of God, we need to adhere to certain standards like dealing with others with love. For the equiping of the saints and train us until reaching the level of knowledge and holiness of the prefect Christ, Christ Jesus has given us 5 ministerial positions I.e. Jesus’s apostles, prophets of the past, evangelists of the past and present, teachers and mentors, church pastors and healing ministries. We cannot reach the maturity of God without the teaching of God. Ultimately is for the edification of the Word of God and to the propagation of God’s salvation and redemption.

The things that are seen is framed by things that are invisible or spiritual. Similarly by faith in God and the knowledge in the Bible, we too understand that the world is framed by the Word of God and all things seen and unseen are moulded by the hands of God as prescribed in Hebrews: 11. 1. Now faith is assurance of [things] hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. 2. For therein the elders had witness borne to them. 3. By faith we understand that the worlds have been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen hath not been made out of things which appear. And God has provided many things for us in order to perfect us in His image. But none of the worldly material things are in any way durable, lasting, genuine, worthy, safe, edifying, nutritive, well made, meticulously crafted compared to the Word of God. For the Word of God is made for God’s children to purposefully make us perfect to become saints and is described in Hebrews: 11. 40. God having provided some better thing concerning us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

The second edge of the sword of faith is to make us perfect in the image of God. All the saints of the past and in our present lives too were imperfect, but made perfect by faith through their acts of God’s miracles and wonders; moreover the Bible recorded their best and ignored their weakness as seen in all the saints in the Holy Bible I.e. Egypt Prime Minister Joseph, whom believed that one day that the children of Israel would leave Egypt. Prince of Egypt Moses who followed God. A harlot and prostitute named Rahab, who help the 2 Israel spies sent by Joshua and aiding the conquest of the promised land. David the greatest king of Israel and the anointed king of God, whom was greatly favored by God despite of his many weaknesses.Samuel a judge of Israel, whom appointed 2 kings. Others prophets and saints include Samson, Sarah, Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Gideon, Barack, etc. All the wonders and miracles that all the saints performed as well as the curses and suffering received in contrary by those who went against God were listed down in Hebrews: 11. 33. who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34. quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, waxed mighty in war, turned to flight armies of aliens. 35. Women received their dead by a resurrection: and others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 36. and others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37. they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, they were tempted, they were slain with the sword: they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38. (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves, and the holes of the earth. 39. And these all, having had witness borne to them through their faith, received not the promise,

There are 2 pieces of the puzzle of the destiny of our lives I.e. God and all the saints. Without God and all the saints that have gone before us and come after us in the future will make us perfect. We need all the saint of God to help us complete our big picture. We pray that we too can become a saints in the Kingdom of God with a future, despite we are a sinner by nature.

Bible Study on Increasing Our Cravings For The Word Of God And Growing And Maturing In And To Be God’s Testimonies according to Hebrews 6:5, Proverbs 15:14, Luke 11:28

Can you open your heart to the appetite to mature in the Word of God? Starts with the Word of God everyday, for the Word of God is food for our souls as food to our bodies and the Word of God will energize you as mentioned in Hebrews: 6. 5. and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come Make no mistake in our lives to make sure that Christ Jesus is the end and destiny of all our lives.

Grow with God’s testimonies because the power of testimonies grows you does not matter the types of testimonies, whereas fools feed and grow on trash. Proverbs: 15. 14. The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge; But the mouth of fools feedeth on folly. We need to continuing chewing and meditate on the Word of God

Matures with testing. No matter what the outcomes are like, our God is good, the testing of God is only to increase our faith in the promises of God. In the times of testing, we need to be in touch with our God and Christ Jesus and we need to fast and pray. Through prayer and fasting, our perspective changes to God’s plans and we feel our old flesh has died and our new spirit arises and our lives will be transformed by the Word of God and Holy Spirit of God.

Last but not least, we also need to duel in the Word of God, because the Holy Bible is the menu given by God to stir our appetite to mature in God as recorded by Jesus apostle in Luke: 11. 28. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. To be people that are blessed by God, it is not alone accomplished by deeds and accomplishments, but being obedient to God’s commandments and fully understanding, applying and keeping true to the Word of God. As God is the beginner and the last and the perfector and finisher of our lives.

Bible Study on Let The Scarlet Thread Of Christ Jesus Weaves Through The Tapestry Of Our Destiny according to Joshua 2:1-24, Hebrews 11:31, Isaiah 1:18, Matthew 27:28-31

Be strong and courageous to do great things for our generation. Because of 1 women who is a misfit and a prostitute impacted a whole generation. See what God can do through a Harlot named Rahab and that continued a scarlet lineage leading to the Messiah. Will you surrender your story to God’s bigger story? Can you see what God can do great through you?

The story began with Joshua and the Israelites laying seige upon and ancient oasis city and Johovah’s promised land of Jericho. Jericho is well irrigated by wells and Sultan Spring, protected by city walls and watch tower and is one of the oldest ancient human town settlement discovered dating back to 8000BC. Joshua: 2. 1. And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men as spies secretly, saying, Go, view the land, and Jericho. And they went and came into the house of a harlot whose name was Rahab, and lay there. 2. And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there came men in hither to-night of the children of Israel to search out the land. 3. And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, that are entered into thy house; for they are come to search out all the land. 8. And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof; 9. and she said unto the men, I know that Jehovah hath given you the land, and that the fear of you is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away before you. Joshua 2. 12. Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by Jehovah, since I have dealt kindly with you, that ye also will deal kindly with my father’s house, and give me a true token; 13. and that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and will deliver our lives from death. 17. And the men said unto her, We will be guiltless of this thine oath which thou hast made us to swear. 18. Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt gather unto thee into the house thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household. 23. Then the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun; and they told him all that had befallen them. 24. And they said unto Joshua, Truly Jehovah hath delivered into our hands all the land; and moreover all the inhabitants of the land do melt away before us.

God looks beyond labels and meets you where you are. God met Rahab who was only a prostitute, but she understood and obeyed God by faith and she did the right things as seen in Hebrews: 11. 31. By faith Rahab the harlot perished not with them that were disobedient, having received the spies with peace. We might be looking around for substances or relationship to solve our misfit and seeking around for acceptance and approval. But none will prove permanent or worthy, unless we can go down on our knees to seek God.

God is able and always has great plans for us all and God looks for faith not for perfection in us. Do you have faith and belief in God? Even it may be smaller than a mustard seed, but God can only save us if we have faith. Your past and present sins do not dictate His plans of forgiveness in your future. God mercies do not leave where we are here now as God’s redemption is far beyond bounds.

The scarlet thread signifies royalty and ruler bestowed by the divine in heaven above and the significance of scarlet symbol lies in the Bible in Isaiah: 1. 18. Come now, and let us reason together, saith Jehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. And the scarlet rob which was put on by the Roman soldiers on Jesus can be seen in Matthew: 27. 28. And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29. And they platted a crown of thorns and put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30. And they spat upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head. 31. And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the robe, and put on him his garments, and led him away to crucify him.

Sometimes we have heard motivating stories or encouraging stories or impossible to overcome miracles. We need to hear more of these stories so that we can find the marking of Jesus at work in your story and how He can do the same in our lives. Our God is worth following, because He is a God of mercy, salvation and redemption as seen in Joshua 2:10. For we have heard how Jehovah dried up the water of the Red Sea before you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were beyond the Jordan, unto Sihon and to Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. 11. And as soon as we had heard it, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more spirit in any man, because of you: for Jehovah your God, he is God in heaven above, and on earth beneath.

All of us carry a story, let us surrender our stories to God’s big story to leave a Godly legacy behind. As long as we trust and obeyed Him, our stories will fit into God’s mighty story book. All of us have a label no matter how big or small, how high or low. God is willing to meet us where we are and use our brokenness to do great things that we can not even imagine; for He is beyond labels, His grace and love is beyond bounds, for He strong in your weakness.

Bible Study on Allowing God To Pull Our Hand Brakes And Nudge Us Onto Safety according to Job 16:16-19, Psalm 119:2, Matthew 6:33

God interrupts whatever we do so that we can join him and fellowship with us. However, it is natural tendencies for us to draw away from God, because we know that we need to change and thus become fearful of that. When God intervenes it is always for our good and the place that He leads us to is the best and safest place for us. We must want it and pursue God’s intervention in order for God to come in. He will gives us the wisdom, strength and grace to face any circumstances and when everything comes down around us.

As children of God and Christ followers, we can create  opportunities for God to intervene in our lives. What activates God’s intervention in times of difficulty is through earnest prayer as seen in Job: 16. 16. My face is red with weeping, And on my eyelids is the shadow of death; 17. Although there is no violence in my hands, And my prayer is pure. 18. O earth, cover not thou my blood, And let my cry have no [resting] -place. 19. Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven, And he that voucheth for me is on high. Because our God is a good God that is loving and caring for His children.

The 2nd way in allowing God’s  intervention is by seeking God and everything of Him with a whole heart and you will be blessed with Godly and good testimonies as charged in Psalm: 119. 2. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, That seek him with the whole heart.

And the 3rd way is by putting God in our lives and put Him first before everything, before your crown, your jewels, your wealth, your career, your status and reputation, your family and children, your health and life. Matthew: 6. 33. But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

We to are never alone, for God will always be around protecting us from harm, that is faith in God. We pray that God be the pillar of cloud by day and pillar of fire at night.

Bible Study on Falling In Love And Building Intimate Relationship With God according to Exodus 33:11, Exodus 20:18-21, Psalm 42:1-2, John 5:19,30, Matthew 14:13, Mark 6:30-31, Psalm 119:15, Psalm 145:5, Philippians 4:8, John 10:4,27, Psalm 23:32

God wants to speak to us like a friend with intimacy and face to face relationship and walk closely with God as it was in Exodus: 33:11 And Jehovah spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his minister Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the Tent. Would you come and draw near to God with honor and love? Or walk away from Him instead?

The children of Israel were at Mount Sinai where they saw the presence of God with awe and fear as seen in Exodus: 20. 18. And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off. The word fear as seen below is not fear a  psychological status but actually to honor God your creator as explained by Moses in Exodus: 20. 19. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 20. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before you, that ye sin not. Sometimes people are fearful of God and pull away. Whereas Moses drew near to God as in Exodus: 20. 21. And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

How deep is your relationship with God? Do you pant for the relationship with God like the desire as husband and wife relationship. We need to develop an intimate relationship with God, look to the Lord and reserve some of limited time for God. It is the only way to have a deeper and closer relationship with God as seen in Psalm: 42. 1. For the Chief Musician. Maschil of the sons of Korah. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, So panteth my soul after thee, O God. 2. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: When shall I come and appear before God? Because when we are in challenging and troubled times, it is the depth and intimacy with God that will bring you through and make us victorious in the end.

Jesus has already showed us the way to have a intimate relationship with God.
John: 5. 19. Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner. And it is through Christ Jesus that we can have relationship with God because it is God’s will that Christ Jesus is our saviour and messiah as mentioned by his apostle in John: 5. 30. I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

How to develop a deeper relationship with God? Why not do what Jesus did to communicate with Father God. Because the usual daily environment we are in is polluted with noise and distraction, we need to go outside away from the noise and distraction and to a quieter and tranquil place, so that we can hear and speak to God as witnessed by his apostle in Matthew: 14. 13. Now when Jesus heard [it], he withdrew from thence in a boat, to a desert place apart: and when the multitudes heard [thereof,] they followed him on foot from the cities. Because during that time His relative and cousin John the Baptist was beheaded by King Herod.

Jesus also asked his diciples to come aside to a deserted place to rest for a while as witnessed by his apostle in Mark: 6. 30. And the apostles gather themselves together unto Jesus; and they told him all things, whatsoever they had done, and whatsoever they had taught. 31. And he saith unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while. For there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. Jesus also had quite time to pray and draw strength from God as testament by his apostle in Mark: 1. 35. And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed.

In life it takes time for all things to grow, mature and refresh, will you give God your time? we need to have some time alone to reflect and meditate upon the Lord, read the Word of God and marvel upon His great works and the goodness He has done for you as read in Psalm: 119. 15. I will meditate on thy precepts, And have respect unto thy ways. And in Psalm: 145. 5. Of the glorious majesty of thine honor, And of thy wondrous works, will I meditate. Also in Philippians: 4. 8. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

We need to develop the ability to hear and recognize God’s small still voice that can be easily mistaken for other things. It is like the sheep recognizing and following its master’s voice in the vivid example by Jesus apostle in John: 10. 4. When he hath put forth all his own, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And in John: 10. 27. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: Also in Psalm: 23. 2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside still waters.

In the end it’s all about listening and hearing from God, draw near to God and develop a relationship with God and following and obeying His voice, for He desires and call for His creations and enjoy Him. Draw near to God and falling in love with Jesus for his love for us is red hot and eternal God is good, He wants us to have all the best things He has to give, I.e. eternal life, sins salvation and death resurrection.
