Galatians 4:19
So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "Luke 17:10

Do Not Answer to Malignant Narcissism

Isaiah 36:18-22

“Do not let Hezekiah mislead you when he says, ‘The Lord will deliver us.’ Have the gods of any nations ever delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria?  Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Have they rescued Samaria from my hand?  Who of all the gods of these countries have been able to save their lands from me? How then can the Lord deliver Jerusalem from my hand?” But the people remained silent and said nothing in reply, because the king had commanded, “Do not answer him.” Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary and Joah son of Asaph the recorder went to Hezekiah, with their clothes torn, and told him what the field commander had said.

This story is between king Hezekiah and king Sennacherib. Let us see what happens in this true story that occured during Isaiah the prophet's time. All of the above characteristics proceed out of the sinful nature of the Devil in you. So you could see how Sennacherib was filled with it. What happens when you have matured in the sinful nature of the Devil in you, like Sennacherib? One very visible and dominant characteristic of the above is arrogance." How then can the LORD deliver Jerusalem from my hand, he arrogantly challenged God? Sennacherib only knew the power of his own hand all his life but He is about to experience the power of God's hand.You can use or abuse the pair of hands given to you by God, but once you start challenging Him out of your arrogance from the sinful nature of the Devil in you, then like Sennacherib you would need to see the power of God's hand demonstrated upon your life.

Oppression of the Poor

James 5:1-6

 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you

What was the actual issue here? The rich oppressing the poor? The wicked oppressing the righteous?
Bosses being unfair to their workers? Injustice? Imagined-enemy? Abuse of authority? Take note of this:"the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty".What exactly was happening here? Absence of the fear of God? Playing God? Think again: "You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you" What does it say here? Taking law into your own hands? Cheating? Greed? Selfishness? No one to be accountable to? Think and think deeply again. What do you think God is going to do next? Think and think again! You are going to pay heavily for your own actions.

The wealth in your hands are going to be of no use to you when God acts against your actions. It will not save you. It will be your turn to weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you just as you brought misery to the poor with no fear for God whatsoever. God views the oppression of the poor seriously. He takes into account every unfairness practiced in favour of the rich so that you could make yourself rich too. How do you hoard wealth? By stealing and robbing from the poor. God hates this and you would have to give account of this to Him. You can get away with men, but you cannot get away with this from God, no matter how you justify your actions now.

God Will Do The Impossible

Jeremiah 32:17-18

“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the parents’ sins into the laps of their children after them. Great and mighty God, whose name is the LORD Almighty,

Many of us who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ still doubt it if God will be able to set us free from the sinful nature of the Devil in us. He is the Great and Mighty God, whose name is the LORD Almighty.
How can He not deliver us from the bondage to the sinful nature of the Devil in us if we truly believe in His Son whom He had sent us as our Deliverer. He is greater than Moses. If Moses could deliver God's people from slavery and bondage to the wicked Pharoah, why could n't the Lord Jesus Christ deliver us from slavery and bondage to the sinful nature of the Devil in us. For this very purpose God had sent us His only begotten Son with whom He is well pleased.

Romans 6:15-18

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?  But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

What God is saying here is: "Is anything too hard for Me" if only you would obey Me. Obeying all that Christ had commanded is obeying God the Father fully. When you obey all that Christ had commanded, you will completely be set free from the sinful nature of the Devil in you and Christ's divine nature will then fill you. Is that impossible to occur within you, when it is the same God who opened the Red Sea for the people of God to escape from slavery and bondage under the iron-fisted rule of Pharoah? Pharoah is likened to the Devil here.

With an Oath

Hebrews 7:19-21

(for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.
 And it was not without an oath! Others became priests without any oath,  but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: ‘You are a priest forever'.

There is no other priest who lives forever other than the Lord Jesus Christ. He is trustworthy, dependable and honest. We can go to Him at anytime and we will be truly helped. He is the priest who never fails us. He does not require payment for going to Him with our requests. He is a priest made out of an oath that God the Father had made. God the Father does not change His mind like we change our minds all the time. He too is trustworthy, dependable and honest. These many aspects of their divine nature are to be formed in us. They are formed in us when we obey Christ and all that He had commanded us.

Hebrews 4:13-15

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.

Do you know that the oath that is mentioned above was made before Christ our Lord had humbled Himself to take the form of a human being even though He is the Son of God? He was equal to God but He emptied Himself of that and became a lowly man born as a poor person even though this whole Earth rightfully belongs to Him and He is rich in everyway and owns everthing on this Earth. He kept God the Father's oath about Him and was faithful even when He was humiliated by sinful man. Even a cruel death on the cross could not hold Him back from fulfilling that oath that God the Father had made to make Him the eternal High Priest for everyone who believes , loves and obeys Him. He had no sin in Him that even the grave could not hold Him in. He came alive on the third day.

Even When It Hurts


Psalm 15:2-4

New International Version (NIV)
The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the LORD; who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;

Keeping an oath even when it hurts and not change your mind as the winds of uncertainty blow on you. This is righteous chararcter. We should not keep changing our minds. Sometimes living in the light and at other times basking in darkness. Sometimes obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in you and at other times claiming that you know God and His righteous ways. If you know, then why do you keep changing your minds, as the wind blows in your direction you sway to the right and left? Keep your oath even when it hurts. Do not change your mind. Keep walking the right path that leads to righteousness. The unsteady will fall and be destroyed along the way. A double minded man is always unsteady in all his ways. If you desired a righteous life at one time, why do you have to change your mind as the wind of influence beats on you vehemently? Stay firm and resist the Devil and he will flee from you forever. God's promise is there and He will fulfill it, if you obey Him fully.

James 1:6-8

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.  Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

They Were Indignant

Matthew 21:12-16

Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them.  But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant. “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?”

Do you see what the chief priests and the teachers of the law were indignant about? They were indignant about children praising the Lord Jesus Christ with the praises " blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD" They didn't like to hear this, especially from children who were innocent. Well, the Lord Jesus Christ replied to them by saying, "children and infants will praise God" for my coming to this earth! You won't be able to stop what God is doing. God will be praised by the innocent. You cannot stop those who are innocent. You cannot stop them when God Himself has opened their mouths to praise the Son of God. How can you shut what God has opened? They were indignant at this. The infants and children were doing the right thing, while the chief priests and the teachers of the law were throwing their tantrums at the Lord Jesus Christ who was being praised by these children. What a upside down world of fanaticism!

Many Who Are Last Will Be First

Matthew 19:27-30

Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

We haven't come to the renewal of all things. Soon it will be. Everything will be made new. There will be a new Ruler. There will be new rulers assisting Him. He will rule from a new and glorious throne. His rule will be righteous, just and fair. Everyone will be repaid accordingly for everything they had done, whether good or bad. Many who made themselves as kings and queens will be dethroned. Many who sought first place in this present world will be made last. Those who were last and  humbled themselves before God and man to be last will be made first in God's coming kingdom.

Peter who said: "we have left everything to follow you! what then will there be for us" went back into fishing when the Lord Jesus Christ was tried and sentenced to death. The Lord Jesus Christ asked Him at this stage, if he really left everything to follow Him because he loved him or for some other reasons.He asked this question three times to Peter. Do you really love me? The Lord Jesus Christ had asked Peter this question because, only when you love Him you will obey Him. This was a reminder to Him. for the Lord had said earlier to him, "if you love Me you will obey my commandments and if you do not love Me, you will not obey my commandments". If you do not obey His commandments, how will Christ's divine nature be formed in you?

The Pharisees Were Offended


Matthew 15:7-14

You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. they worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?” He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.  Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”

Ego, who really is ego-disease free when there is obedience to the sinful nature of the Devil in them, instead of obedience to God the Holy Spirit? God the Holy Spirit reminds us everything about the divine nature of Christ and how it can be formed in us. He encourages us so that Christ's divine nature is fully formed in us. How many of us fully obey His leading towards full Christformation in us? What we sow, will be what we will reap out of our obedience to Him. There are no short-cuts but only a "narrow door" to enter the kingdom of God through Christformation. Believing in Christ should see the end-result of Christformation in you through the help of God the Holy Spirit.

Masquerade As Servants of Righteousness

2 Corinthians 11:12-15

And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.  It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

Pretension is everywhere. Falsehood is practised with pride. People are asking: what's behind that mask? "Who is he" or, "what are his or her real motives"? The world places importance on impressing others in whichever way they can. Hence, giving a false impression of oneself to the world. It is not in impressing others with what you have. If you trying to impress others with what you have, you are a selfish person. You have been operating through devilish wisdom. This wisdom does not come from God. It originates from the Devil. what happens to you in the end will show what kind of life you had lived. Selfish or selfless? Anyway, you do not be selfless to make a show of it also. If you do, you are no different from the one who is selfish. You are doing everything centred around you. This should not be the case if you belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. He does not have a nature of pretension.So, where did this come from in you? Yes, it  comes from the sinful nature of the Devil in you. How come? You said you belonged to the Lord Jesus Christ but how come you still obey the sinful nature of the Devil in you, when you should be obeying God's Spirit in you towards full Christformation in you?

Disillusioned About Your Christian Faith?

Psalm 12:1-3

New International Version (NIV)
Help, LORD, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts.
May the LORD silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue—

Do you feel that you have been cheated with lies all these years. Has truth been stolen from you? Has someone treated you as dirt and not respected who you are in the LORD? Has someone "pushed down your throat" what you always knew something that they had served was inedible? You had no choice but to accept lies. For some human reasons you were bound to these lies. The time is  up for you to break free from these destructive lies.

The father of all lies has been around for the past six thousand years or so. He has been crafting these lies that has sounded almost like the truth but it isn't the truth. You could judge it by its fruit. There isn't any fruit of repentance following that confession of faith. Obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in them continues. There isn't the formation of the divine nature of Christ in them. How do we know this? Because, both the divine nature of Christ and the sinful nature of the Devil cannot grow in God's garden at the same time. How come they still obey the sinful nature of the Devil in them? How can you belong to the Lord Jesus Christ but yet at the same time live conforming to the standards of the sinful nature of the Devil in you?

Disillusioned about your Christian faith? You are not the only one! You must always remember that the "father of all lies" has not been removed from this earth yet. He will soon be removed by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Devil who is the "father of lies" will be cast into the lake of fire with his minions following him into eternal condemnation. For the time being, the Truth will set you free. When the Truth is formed in you, (which is Christ Himself) you will be freed from these lies. You will not be bound by these lies any more.

Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.

Do you notice something important in the Psalms above. In the end what matters to God most is your individual faith and obedience to God's word. That would mean; obedience to Christ our Lord, for He is the revealed Word of God. "Blessed is the one"  and "that person" is referred to individuals who choose to "delight in His law" meaning those who  obey God through Christ and all that He had commanded.For, He is that Word of God.

Seeking the Glory of the One Who Sent Me

John 7:17-19
New International Version (NIV) Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?”

The Lord Jesus only sought the glory of God the Father all the time while He was on earth. Even now at the exalted right hand of God, He does the same. He does not change. Abased or abound, He is always the same. He seeks the glory of God forever and ever. He seeks that the Father in heaven be glorified before men and all His creation through Him and His completed work on the cross.

Colossians 1:19-20New International Version (NIV)
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

God the Father's fulness dwells in Christ and if Christ is formed in you, you too will have the fulness of God in you eternally. but, how will this occur if you give the glory to the Devil by pleasing and obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in you? You have to put to death all the misdeeds of the sinful nature of the Devil in you, first.

Who Gave You This Authority?

Luke 20:1-8 New International Version (NIV)
One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?” He replied, “I will also ask you a question. Tell me: John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin?” They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’ But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.” So they answered, “We don’t know where it was from.” Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.”

When the Lord Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission in Matthew 2817-20, he had said first that; "all authority has been given to Him by the Father in Heaven. He commanded us to "go" out into the world with this authority that remains in His disciples as long as they are with Him.That, He has been given the highest authority on earth, in heaven and even underneath the earth. Tell me, who ever was given such authority. He said this after He had risen from the dead and was about to be seated at God's right hand. Can anyone challenge that authority ever? We should fear such righteous authority. We have this promise, that one day everyone will bow before His righteous authority, even unrepenting sinners!

When we talk about authority, we have two kinds of it. Godly authority which means God's authority and evil authority which means that which operates from the sinful nature of the Devil in men who are in authority. We know about this evil authority because we have been wrestling with this evil authority ever since we were revealed about this by the greatest and highest authority that is God and His Christ. He knows who these evil authorities are, where they hide and what they do in hiding. These are real demons we wrestle with daily.They are very evil by nature and are only waitng for their destruction in the hands of Christ forever.

Ephesians 6:10-12
New International Version (NIV)
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

True Fasting Starts Now

Isaiah 58:6
New International Version (NIV)
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

What is fasting in the first place? No one must know that you have fasted. Not even your family members. It must be done in secret with God. Why must you fast? To show you are serious about what you are asking God for. Not for selfish reasons but for the needs of others. What kinds of need? Needs that are impossible to be met by you to show that nothing is impossible for Him to demonstrate on earth. When it comes to fighting with demons whom you cannot see with your natural pair of eyes, it will be necessary to fast. Like many problems in this world are the works of the Devil and his minions.It may appear like we are fighting with men but we are not. We are wrestling with evil authorities, evil rulers, evil powers and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. We can fight them by being serious with our prayer life through fasting. But, make it a secret between you and God. Don't blow the trumpet to the whole about this.

Matthew 6:5-18

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.  But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

The Destructive Against The Indestructible

Hebrews 7:15-17New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. For it is declared: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”

2 Peter 2:1-3
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Destructive behaviour,policies,attitude,mind,actions,desires,motives, intentions of the heart,practices,urges,cravings,pleasures,thoughts,inclinations of the hearts,mood swings,anger, fury,rage,emotions,ways,habits,weaknesses, teachings, heresies,self-will,stand,beliefs,ideas,imaginations,planning, stirrings and so forth have been deployed against the indestructible but to no avail. The one who will be destroyed in the end will be the destructive not the indestructible.

From the start, not many knew that the Lord Jesus Christ was indestructible. When the Lord Jesus Christ was born into this world as an infant not many understood that He is indestructible. Herod did not understand this truth so he tried to kill the Lord Jesus Christ when He was still a baby. But, the three wise men who tracked the Star that stood above Him knew that He is indestructible. The gifts they brought along with them showed what they had believed about Him. Their gifts to Him spoke about durability, eternity and everlasting life. God's angels that sang at His birth on earth knew He is indestructible. The shepherds at that scene knew too. But, Herod and his evil men did not! The Destructive would never be able to recognize The Indestructible. The Roman soldiers could not. The Sanhedrin, the pharisees, the saducees, the priests and the chief priests could not.The world could not. Judas Iscariot, the son of perdition could not. Only a few could recognize The Indestructible.

The Devil and the demons that were thrown out of heaven unto this earth like lightning are destructive. This same Devil who appeared and deceived Adam and Eve was he not destructive? Wasn't the wisdom that came from him destructive? Didn't he seek to destroy mankind with that devilish wisdom? He did by deceptively sowing his sinful nature into mankind that we still struggle with today. He still holds the world in bondage to this sinful nature of his that is destructive. The children of the devil are destructive. But, those in whom the divine nature of The Indestructible is being formed will become indestructible too. Christformation in you is indestructible. When you have successfully destroyed the sinful nature of the Devil in you, you will become indestructible like your Saviour, Lord and Master of your life. His indestructible life would be formed in you fully if you fully obey all that He had commanded. Are you already doing this? If you are, good! If not, wake up now before it is too late.

Christ must be formed in you....

Welcome to the diligenthands of the Christformation prophet

Welcome to this prophetic writings blog that warns and saves lives from eternal condemnation as a result of continual sinning. Overcoming sinful living is the objective of the prophet. Diligently writing down of every timely warning to avoid catastrophic disaster by the fruit of our sinful living.
