THE CHRISTIAN WALK

Cameron, Texas, USA
hen I was called by the True Lord God Almighty on Friday February 21, 1997, the Holy Spirit told me numerous things, but like a newly-hired employee in a secular job my spiritual schedules were given to me. When you are truly and genuinely-called by the Lord Jesus Christ, there are seven fundamentals of life He would make known to you. They are as follows: a comprehensive re-orientation on who you are, how you got to this earthly realm, why He created you, what you are here to achieve, how you will achieve it, those and what you need to achieve His purpose for your life and when and how you are returning back to Him as your creator after you have completed your assignment. This is called the Journey of Life and this journey is encapsulated into three domains namely: Pre-Natal, Adult life and Gathering of Life Like in secular job when you're employed, you will pass through an orientation period and be trained to know the rules and regulations guiding employees known collectively as "organizational culture." Ditto, there is a spiritual cultural ethos that the Holy Spirit makes anyone called into the ministry to pass through just as the Word of Life says: "Summoning His 12 disciples, He gave them authority over unclean spirits, to drive them out, and to heal every disease and sickness. These are the names of the 12 apostles…" (Matthew 10:1-2). Every genuinely-called to His Service must be trained. There are seven places and ways those truly called by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ must be trained namely:- Prison, Exile, Experience, Mentorship, Afflictions, Sickness and Diseases, and Deprivations,
When the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the True Lord God Almighty called Pa Abram; He told him in Genesis 12: 1-3: "Go out from your land, your relatives and your father's house…" -referring to why he was called and told those who did not belong to the calling of the Lord for Abram's life. "I will make you into a great nation"- was referring to the purpose and reason for God's calling over his life. "I will bless you, I will make your name great and you will be a blessing" -was referring to what Abram would gain by obeying God's calling on his life. This is akin to an employer spelling out the wages and salaries, including fringe benefits that a newly-hired employee would be entitled to in an organization. "I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who treat you with contempt"-referring to how the purpose and will of the Lord God Almighty for Abram would be achieved. "…and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you"---referring to the overall goal and purpose of Abram's calling by the Sovereign Lord God Almighty. These seven life's fundamentals were also disclosed by the Lord God Almighty to Moses at Horeb in Midian (Exodus 3:7-10). In the New Testament, the same pattern was evident, because the Sovereign Lord God Almighty is the same yesterday, today and forever and doesn't change (Hebrews 13:8). When He called Saul who later became known as Paul, these seven elements were spelt out by the Alpha and Omega and the King of kings, Amen. "As he-referring to Saul-traveled and was nearing Damascus" (Acts 9:2)-which referred to the place Saul was called. "…a light flashed around him" (Acts 9: 3b)-referring to the manner of Saul's conversion and calling by the Messiah, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Hallelujah! "Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him; 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" (Acts 9:4)---referring to the real Jesus Christ Who called Saul a.k.a Paul and further referring to the circumstances of his calling. "Who are You, Lord" (Acts 9:5)---referring to the surety and assurances of Paul true and genuine calling as the Holy Bible admonished everyone who calls himself a pastor, teacher, evangelist etc "Therefore, brothers (and sisters too), make every effort to confirm your calling and election…" (2 Peter 1:10).
Continuing with Paul's conversion, calling and election, our Lord Jesus Christ told him: "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting" (Acts 9:7b) ---referring to the Master and Savior Who cannot be faked and imitated. "But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do" (Acts 9:6) ---referring to where and why Saul also known as Paul was called by his Maker. "In Damascus, there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision: Ananias"….(Acts 9:10-12)---referring to those who belong to the achievement of God's purpose and will for Apostle Paul. In secular job and human relations, we refer to such people as co-employees, colleagues in the office and co-workers. Finally, "…the Lord said to him (Anannias); Go! For this man (Saul who later became Apostle Paul) is My…(Acts 9: 15-16)---referring to what, where, when and how of Paul's conversion, calling and God's purpose and will.
Each time a precious soul calls us here at The Jesus Christ Solution Center, Texas, and we ask, if the person is a Christian, the tone in some people's voice sound incredulous and disbelief as if questioning an unbelievably cinch disclosure. When we ask: what is Christianity and who is a Christian, the answers are mostly off-mark. "I have been a Christian all my life, my parents have been taking me to church since I was a child, I am a Christian by birth, I go to church and I bear Christian name etc" Truth is; these are not what Christianity is all about and what makes a Christian. You aren't a Christian because you were born into Christianity, attend Christian school, attend church with your parents, and bear Christian name etc. A Christian is a person who has taken the Lord Jesus Christ as his or her Lord, Master and Savior. But that is the beginning of salvation, just as your being given admission to a college or university to read say Law or Medicine for instance doesn't make you a lawyer or a medical doctor. Similarly, being called for an interview and given a letter of employment by a company, corporation or an organization doesn't make you an employee or worker yet.
Many precious souls who professed faith and belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ are merely saved which is the minimal threshold to the Christian Life, but aren't born-again which is what makes one a Christian just as the One Whom we profess faith and belief in pointed out: "Jesus replied; I assure you, Unless someone is born-again, he (or she) cannot see the Kingdom of God" (John 3:3). Again, Jesus repeated this absolute fact and truth the second time: "Jesus answered; I assure you; Unless someone is born of water and Holy Spirit, he (or she) cannot enter the Kingdom of God" (John 3:5). Anywhere in the Bok of Life from Genesis to Revelation where the Words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ were repeated twice, those words and statements are immutable, indisputable, and indubitable and cannot be treated as non sequitur. When the King speaks, and you can know His Words in any Bible published in red color, those words and statements are apodictic, period!
There are 12 issues of life that are generically indubitable in the three phases of Life's Journey from Pre-Natal, to Adult life and Gathering of Life. You and I do not have inputs into these 12 issues of life already decided by the Creator Himself. These are the 12 things the Holy Spirit would disclose to you as soon as you are saved and become a born-again Christian. Many precious souls do not know these 12 basic generic issues of life which is where to begin our Breakthrough 2020 three-day events coming up next week Friday January 17, 2020. How can you know you are a born-again child of the Living God, if you do not know your spiritual identity? In secular life, we want to know the history of one's family; your genealogy; parents, grandparents etc which is your ancestral line. That was the reason 2 of the 4 Synoptic Gospels-Mathew and Luke-traced the genealogies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While Matthew traced Jesus Kingship to Abraham, Luke traced His genealogy far back to the Garden of Eden as the Second Adam, thus bringing Hebraic and Gentile believers together as one in fulfillment as Paul pointed out in Ephesians 2:14: "For He Himself-referring to our Lord Jesus Christ- is our peace, who has made the two groups-referring to Jews and Gentiles-one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility." John epistle traced the genealogy of our Lord Jesus Christ to His pre-Adamic Life as God Himself (John 1:1-5)
DAY ONE: FRIDAY JANUARY 17, 2020: On Day One, all attendees, participants and enrollees will be made to identify their spiritual genealogy and ancestry. This is very, very important, because how can you know why you are here on earth, if you do not know where you came from in the first place? For any born-again Christian to fulfill the will and purpose of the Almighty God for his or her life, you must first discover your spiritual origin. Who am I? Where am I from? How did I get here on earth? We have seen precious souls, including pastors, deacons, evangelists, teachers, and missionaries etc who are yet to answer these three spiritual genealogical questions. That is why their Christian Journey is yo-yo and they endure rather than enjoy the Christian Walk. The Lord God Almighty answered these three fundamental genealogical questions for Moses when He told him:- "…and when My glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove My hand and you will see My back, but My face must not be seen" (Exodus 33:22-23).
The back of the Almighty God was not physical back like humans but history of the human race; how the heavens and earth were created, how Adam and Eve were created and what purpose of their creation nay the human race; in short, how it all began. Moses was not present at the Garden of Eden and so how could he write the Book of Genesis, if he didn't see its creation? That would be fiction so God Almighty had to show Moses all these things and that was the Back of the Lord God Almighty. This was the first thing the Holy Spirit showed me when He called me in the Gulag Apapa, Lagos, Nigeria on Friday February 21, 1997. He showed me how I was conceived, the events that led to my birth, my paternal and maternal families and my origin. Leaf through the Holy Bible, you would see this pattern throughout the life of those called (See Gen. 5:29 for Noah; Gen 12:1-3; for Abraham; Gen. 17:21 for Isaac; Gen. 25:23 for Jacob etc).
This first day, all attendees will have the opportunity to have one-on-one session with me on spiritual identification on individual level as the Holy Spirit provides the time and opportunity at The Jesus Christ Solution Center here in Cameron, TX USA. Many other activities lined up as contained in the brochure for attendees.
DAY TWO SATURDAY JANUARY 18, 2020:-On Day Two which is Saturday January 18, 202, the Holy Spirit will teach us how to identify our individual calling. As we all know, many precious souls do not know why they are here on this planet earth. Some pastors, evangelists, deacons, teachers, missionaries, choristers etc are working for the Lord based on instincts as Jude pointed out thus: "But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, " In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires. These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the (Holy) Spirit" (Jude 17-19). The greatest tragedy that can befall a Christian is to be working for the Lord and not sure that is your real calling. I asked a pastor, how was he sure he was indeed called by the Lord God Almighty to be pasturing a church and he kept quiet. Many are zealous for the Lord as Apostle Paul pointed out, but it is not enough to be zealous, but our zeal must be based on knowledge not mere instinct (Romans 10:2). The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ told the Church in Antioch: "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work that I have called them to" (Acts 13: 2).
A pastor called us here at The Jesus Christ Solution Center for financial help to pay for rent in the church he was pasturing few years ago and as I was planning to send the money, the Holy Spirit said I should not send a dime to the brother. "But Daddy, You commanded us to help Your trusted and genuinely-called and servants in the ministry, so why shouldn't I give out from the abundance You have blessed us with in our ministry?" The Holy Spirit said: "Ask him where and when I told him to be a pastor and run a church?"I was flummoxed and so I asked the brother; "Mr. Pastor, the Holy Spirit said I should ask you; where and when did He tell you to be a pastor and run a church." The brother answered: "You know Dr, I have been asking myself the same questions, because I am not sure if I have been called to be a pastor and run a church." You see, sowing a seed into that church would have been a waste. Many precious souls have been paying tithes and offering into many churches without results, because they are planting their seeds in the wrong places. Folks, there are many pastors shepherding churches and congregations around the world who haven't been called as pastors. If you have been called to be a teacher of the Word and you instead become a pastor that is disobedience. If the work the Holy Spirit has called you to do is to evangelize and instead of answering the call of evangelization, you instead on your own become a deacon or general overseer; that is disobedience. If the purpose and will of the Lord Jesus Christ for you is to be a missionary and instead of answering the call of a missionary, you turn yourself into a chorister, you have disobeyed the Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. Here is the judgment of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on such disobedient souls: "Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he (or she) who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name and in Your Name drive out demons and in Your Name perform many miracles. Then I will tell them plainly, " I never knew you, depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness" (Matthew 7:21-22). (See also Luke 6:46 & 13:25-27). How can you be sure of your calling? This is what we are going to focus on throughout Saturday January 18, 2020. The Holy Spirit has revealed all these in His Word and He will reveal more at the Breakthrough 2020 coming up next week.
DAY THREE SUNDAY JANUARY 19, 2020:-Finally, how do I go about fulfilling and carrying out God's Will and Purpose for my life? What do I need in order to carry out His Will and Purpose? Who and who do I need to be part of my life in order to carry out His Will and Purpose? How can I know that I am carrying out His Will and Purpose? What are those things to look for in my life that I am about to complete and have completed my Godly assignment on this earth? Is it possible to know that I have carried out the purpose and will of God Almighty for my life to its final conclusion? All these are what the Holy Spirit will reveal to us during the three-day events.
For each day, we will have a session where attendees will have the opportunity to me with me-Dr Moshood Ademola Fayemiwo- one-on-one for His Utmost. As we have disclosed in earlier articles in this column, this Breakthrough 2020 is a must attend for any saved and truly born-again and genuinely-redeemed child of the King. There are still slots available for those desirous for working for the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to register now for this epoch-making event.
