Proverbs 28:13 “He that covereth his sins shall not pro-sper: but whoso confess-eth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
The hallmark of real be-lieving in God breeds a change of character and lifestyle. This is exempli-fied in Acts 19:18 “And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.” In other words, when an individual believes in God and accepts His offer of salvation, a visible ch-ange of character and attitude takes place in such a person’s life.
This kind of believing is beyond what the Bible describes in James 2:19″… the devils also believe, and tremble.” What I mean is that this sort of believing in God’s power to save from sin brings salvation to the individual’s door step and a change of behaviour before the public.
Acts 19:19 “Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.” Since coming to God is a serious business, it is expected that you treat it with all the seriousness it deserves.
If you are involved in occultism, then you have to take concrete steps to break away from such entanglements. The talisman and the waist band wrapped around your body will no longer be necessary so you have to throw them away. Also, the juju ring and all the other crude properties of the devil are to be disposed of.
Because you have known the truth and have decided to come clean, there is another twist to the tale. Just as in the Bible days, you are not to transfer those curious arts to any other person who is ready to promote the vicious and scathy acts of wickedness. Rather you are to destroy them for the good of the souls of men.
On this account that you have made up your mind to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, I will like you to compose yourself in a solemn mood, because we have come to an all important moment of your life. So, treat it as such. Bow your head for prayers because Jesus is waiting to come into your life. Confess your sins to Him and accept Him as your Lord and personal Saviour today.
The Miracle of God’s Supernatural Touch
Luke 8:46 “And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.”
Having a contact with Jesus should be everybody’s pri-ority and utmost desired decision, because He is the Saviour of the whole world. If it is your desire to touch Christ Jesus today, it will be His pleasure to touch and transform your life for the better by releasing His miracle of salvation into your life.
The woman that touched Jesus had a strong and un-quenchable desire to obtain something from the Lord, which lead to a determined will power, on her part, that eventually met her long lasting need. And just like this woman, when you have such a longing as well as a determined look to meet Jesus, the power from on high will unsettle those protracted challenges be-devilling you. I say it will happen to you.
Get this. There were many people around at this point in time. Some people were onlookers; while others play bystanders. They wondered at her intentions, but she did not let their presence and or what they must have thought about her to discourage her much calculated course of action. It was the decision of her mind that carried her over. If you are here, do not be like a spect-ator who ends up watching and applauding the action, without participating in the decisive encounter meant to transform his or her live.
After she took that prompt action, Jesus knew some-one had touched Him, because He perceived that virtue had gone out of Him.
Today, that same virtue is available to work in your life. It is a virtue that will turn your life condition around for the better, and save you from near death situation. It is a virtue that will break your long standing yoke as it will set you free from sin, sickness and Satan. It is a virtue that will transform a bad man and a terrible wo-man into a terrific person.
All it takes is a touch from Jesus. You can take that significant step that will make your life a whole lot of good. Make up your mind to decide that today will be a moment of extraordinary breakthrough and it will happen, because the Lord is ready to chance your story. He will save your soul from sin and make all the im-possibilities of your life possible.
A very remarkable aspect about God is that when you open up your life to Him, He does not hesitate, but ta-kes the initiative by dwelling inside of you. While taking residence in your life, as a host, you will instantly start to observe some vital changes, because God will begin to touch your spirit, soul and body. His touch will also impact your career, family life, and everything about you will come alive.
