HOW TO FOLLOW A SPIRITUAL MENTOR: I have watched with rude shock how many Christian youths make so much noise about their spiritual mentors/ fathers. Many come on Facebook to write about them, post their pictures and impress people that they are following a man of God. All this noise is either foolishness or mere excitement. Spiritual mentorship and sonship is about heart to hear connection. Bishop Oyedepo met Kenneth Hagin after 30 years of following, pastor Chris met Pastor Benny Hinn for the first time in 2016 while he has been listening to his messages and reading his books since 1983. These men of God didn't make noise about their spiritual mentors yet they become a replica. Youth of nowadays are moving around with seeds to get impartation, that's foolishness. Establish a spiritual tribe first. Let there be heart-to-heart connection first. Silently align yourself. Don't make noise about a man of God you are following when your prayer life, commitment and yieldedness can't match his own. You're very inconsistent in the spirit but you are making too much noise on social media. There is no week I don't see my spiritual mentors in dreams, visions and in the spirit yet I don't make noise about them. Learn this wisdom.

MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF BLESSING
 Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?

Refrain:
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying,
The Savior Who died on the cross?

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the Word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?

We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from known sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
MATTHIAS, CHOSEN TO REPLACE JUDAS
Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles. Acts 1:26, NIV Replacement is necessary when a substantive thing or person has lost its relevance or is no longer available. Judas Iscariot was once named among the twelve disciples but he lost his position by giving the devil a chance in his life. He eventually committed suicide (Matthew 27:3-4). The passage today reveals that Peter with the eleven other disciples saw the need to replace Judas, hence, they chose Matthias. No one is indispensible. It is a rare privilege to be a follower of Christ and become an instrument in His hand. But if anyone fails the Lord, he can be dispensed with and replaced. This means that you must not give the devil a chance in your life, so that you would not be replaced. Besides, to become an honourable vessel in God’s hand, you must have been with Jesus and learnt from Him. This was what gave Matthias an opportunity to serve. You too can be mightily used of the Lord if you jealously guard your testimony and maintain a cordial relationship with the Master. Today, as you go out, choose to be an instrument of honour in the hand of the Lord. "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”In the kingdom of God, service is not a stepping stone: it is nobility, the only kind of nobility that is recognized! – ARE WE SINNERS EVERYDAY ? : For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; "this will be a long read because somethings can't be summarised anyhow." be blessed! Romans 3 started with Paul telling us there's no difference between Jews and gentiles, no favouritism again, because we all come by faith now, not by being a gentle or jew or can their law save them again but faith.
He did this from 1 to vs 20(please check and confirm) .In doing this, he sums everyone, both jew and gentiles up as sinners under "sin"(The nature of sin) not sins! (The acts of sin) .Romans 3:9 KJVS .What then? are we better than they ? No, in no wise: *for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under SIN VS 10 tells us no one is righteous, so, this assumption was based on Vs 9. Vs 11 continues by saying we are went our own way.. That continues till vs 18 .Then paul said in vs 19 that the law that was given made the Jews that thought they are right and holy before God, see themselves as guilty before God, as the previous verses has stated. So, Paul burst the bubble of the Jews that might think vs 9-18 is not for them because they have the law which makes them holy, but Paul convince them that ALL was guilty, both jews and Greek. Looking at the tone of Paul, you can see he was talking to them about their PAST? isn't?  How no one was right before Christ came, how we were all guilty and needs a way out, a saviour. So, vs 21, Paul tells us, the righteousness of God that Jews thought they can get by obeying the law but instead they were all made guilty as been REVEALED.. I said, Paul was talking about their past before, now check how he start vs 21 to confirm. Romans 3:21 KJV *BUT NOW* the righteousness of God without the law is MANIFESTED, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; so, before, all sinned, came short of glory.. How?  Romans 5:19 KJVS.For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. But in vs 21,Paul revealed to us that a solution has been made!! Glory!! That solution is in vs 22 Romans 3:22 KJVS. Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:So, for Paul to make them understand what he was trying to say here, he went back to summarise vs9-18 by saying. Romans 3:23, NLT. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Look at that sentence! *P ast tense! Then Vs 24 says.. Romans 3:24 NLT *Yet God*, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. *HE DID this through Christ Jesus WHEN he freed us from the penalty for our sins. So, before we were sinners, fall short of glory of God as seed of Adam, and because of his Sin, but now GOD HAS DONE! HE DID! when Christ died, we were forgiven! A new nature was given! So, *the day you accept this new life, that was the day, vs 23 stop being applicable to you again forever .Because you are now JUSTIFIED, that's your nature now, not a sinner!  Reading on from vs24 to the end will tell you about that more, see vs Romans 3:26 NLT .for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, *and he makes sinners right in his sight WHEN THEY BELIEVE IN JESUS . Is it when they recite psalm 51? When they believe, you've have done that, so, you are not a sinner. The next time someone tells you, you are a sinner as a believer, tell him quickly back that God says am righteous, and I am following God's declaration on me, I am accepting the his sacrifice! That's who I am! Glory to God! SALVATION IS NOT BY GOOD WORKS : Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; “GOOD WORKS” are not what a man must do to receive salvation, but “GOOD WORKS” are what a man shows forth after his salvation. They are not “means” of salvation but “results” of salvation. We perform “GOOD WORKS” not because we want to have favour with God but because we are already in favour with God .We show forth our “GOOD WORKS” not to be saved but because we are saved. It is in us to do good works because we were created and ordained for them.That is … Salvation is “NOT OF GOOD WORKS”, but “UNTO GOOD WORKS” *An unbeliever places his “FAITH” in Christ to be saved, but a believer shows forth his “GOOD WORKS” because they are the results of the “FAITH” he had placed in Christ*.God does not accept good works from a believer as a means of salvation, *but remembers and rewards the good works of a believer after his salvation* Hebrews 6: 10 KJVS . A sinner tries to “WORKS FOR” his salvation by his “good works” which is *dead works*, while a believer “WORKS *OUT*” his salvation by his “good works”.“Good works” without faith in Christ breeds “DEAD WORKS”, no matter who you are!. “Good works” with faith in Christ breeds “FRUITFUL WORKS” Colossians 1: 10 KJVS – That ye mighty walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, BEING FRUITFUL IN EVERY GOOD WORK, and increasing in the knowledge of God:all good works God wrought through us because we are in Christ will be rewarded.  Some believers would not be rewarded (even though they will reign with Christ in that new world), because they have nothing (good works) to bring forth or present to their king . It will be a judgement for rewards for the things done for the king and his kingdom. 1Corinthians 3: 13 [KJV] – Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire: and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is2 Corinthians 5: 10 [KJV] – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive THE THINGS DONE IN HIS BODY, according to that he hath done, whether it good or bad.We are not saved by works, but we are “saved to produce good works”. We are not saved by works, but we will be “rewarded for good works” And remember that the work he gave us is to see the will of the father, his desire being fulfilled in every nations. The will is 1 Timothy 2:4 KJVS . Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. So, the work is evangelism, shining the light of the gospel of Christ everywhere we find ourselves.  Glory to God. Lastly, God is not firstly interested in good works,  He is more interested in the source of the good works. Whether it is "In Christ(accepted) or In self(filthy rag) ". LEARNING CHRIST JESUS FROM PSALMS CHAPTER 23 SCRIPTURES: Psalms 23:1 The Shepherd is representing God  who is protecting the lamb who is  Jesus  John 1:21 And looking upon Jesus as he walked , he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! The whole book of psalms talks about Christ Jesus and not about us people if you read Psalms 110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.This verse @ Psalms 110:4 its God that  sworn that Christ Jesus is the High Priest of the order of Melchizedek and  see Christ Jesus being the High priest fulfilling this scripture @ Heb 5:5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have l begotten the Heb 5:6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.The two verses that is Heb 6:5-6 are saying Christ Jesus did not become a High Priest by his own accord but was made one by God who had sworn @ Psalms 110:4 that Christ Jesus will be a High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek hence Psalms 110:4  is the other place that is being said @ Heb 5:6. By me showing you Christ Jesus coming up from other scriptures of Psalms l am  trying to prove to you that Psalms 23:1-6 that have been abused by many to think it speak of them is actually talking about Jesus/ lamb  who is being protected by God / shepherd . Luke 24:44 prove that the book of Psalms points @ Christ Jesus .vLuke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words  which l spake unto you, while l was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Of note from Luke 24:44 is the term " concerning me" meaning @ this verse Christ is emphasising the point that the book of psalms speaks about Him and does not speak of Shylet , Violet , Dereck , Anton . If Christ Jesus is the one that was being referred to @ Psalms 110:4 as the high priest similarly Christ Jesus is also the one that is being referred to @ Psalms 23:1 who is the lamb and God is the Shepherd protecting Him. Henceforth the whole bible talks about Jesus Christ from Genesis to Revelation. LEARNING CHRIST JESUS FROM PSALMS 23:2 , Psalms 23:2 He maketh me lie down in the green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters . This verse is talking about Christ Jesus. Many today think carnally and see themselves in that scripture and assume the green pastures being refered to it is going to USA , having a good salary , having a private jet. Yet this is all wrong Jesus Christ is the one that is being referred to by that verse the green pastures that Jesus lied down is the garden that Jesus was buried .Luke 19:21 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a sepulchre, wherein was yet laid. Luke 19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day, for the sepulchre was high at hand .From these two verse Luke 19:41-42 Sepulchre refer to the place or grave that Christ was buried / laid as fulfilling that verse @ Psalms 23:2  He maketh me lie down in the green pastures. The green pasture refer to the garden that was located the grave/ sepulchre. Look at the imagery all is green in a garden there are carrots , vegetables , onions hence helping you understand the term " green pastures. LEARNING CHRIST JESUS FROM THE BOOK OF PSALMS: Psalms 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels and hast crowned him with glory and honour.This verse is speaking about Christ Jesus He is the one that was made a little lower than the angles for he came down from heaven yet He is God Himself and became flesh as we are that is how Christ became a little lower than the angles so that He will die for us to attain salvation this is well clarified @ Heb 2:9 .Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angles for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.The glory and honour that Christ got is referring to His exaltation after he died, resurrected and ascended to heaven Christ Jesus sat at the right hand of God,  was given a name above ever name , he was made a High Priest of the order of Melchizedek that is the bounty part @ Psalms 13:6 hence Christ is saying @ that verse God you have sat me at your right hand , you have made me a high priest ,  you have  given me a name above every name hence you have dealt with me bountifully / rewarded me handsomely.  Henceforth it is not you and me that are being referred to by that verse that you can say Lord  you have dealt with me bountifully hence will  sing and praise. Heb 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things in bringing many sons unto glory , to make the captain of their salvation perfect through suffering .This verse  show  Christ's exaltation for all things  belong to Him. The things being referred are all the scriptures in the bible from Genesis to Revelation that teach about Him thus all scriptures exalt or teach about Christ from Genesis to Revelation. Heb 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren. This verse is saying that both us and Christ are one and Christ Jesus is not afraid or ashamed to call us brothers/ relative / brethren. This shows how Christ is glad or is in praise because of those that He died for and gave salvation to and are willing to learn His gospel and learn about Him from Genesis to Revelation. Heb 2:12 Saying, l will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will l sing praise unto thee.This is explaining that  Christ Jesus is not ashamed to call us relatives/ brethren He is not afraid  to declare / sing His name unto us His brethren/ church/ relatives / brothers. The declaration happen as  Himself Christ Jesus teach us about Himself  in all scriptures as aided by  the Holy Spirit whose duty is demystify the written scriptures (Logos) and come up with the revelation of Christ Jesus ( Rhema) from Genesis to Revelation  hence  Christ Jesus come up from the scriptures it is Christ Jesus Himself singing in praise for God have dealt with Him bountifully he was given a name above every name , made a high priest. This help explain Psalms 13:6 which is saying l will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. Also explain Psalms 22:22 l will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will praise thee .Thus Christ Jesus sing as His revelation is taught  from Genesis to Revelation .Those verses are not to compose songs with but to teach Christ Jesus from. They are not to be abused in thanking God with as you feel or think God have rewarded you bountifully with a beautiful wife , good job , good salary , Christ Jesus is the one that was rewarded bountifully not you.
