Many of us have Bibles lying around gathering dust. Some of us even carry one. But when we’re struggling with unbelief, we don’t want a scripture; we want something tangible, something emotional that we can feel. We would rather have Jesus just put His arm around us and say something about how everything will be all right. That would make us feel better. But overcoming doubt isn’t just about feeling better; it’s about getting back into faith that only comes from the Word of God (Rom. 10:17).

In our dispensation, political leaders are not chosen by God but elected by the people. In a democracy, the will of the people is upheld. In a democracy, God does not elect leaders but the people do and God recognizes whoever was elected as the leader. God may not approve of it but will recognize the leader because He respects the will of the people.
The confusion, hurt, and pain from that alone were probably unbearable, but then came the thoughts: We have made such sacrifices, leaving family and businesses, risking it all on the belief that Jesus was the Messiah. Might it all have been in vain? How long before they come to get us? That is real stress and pressure.
God’s love has never been or ever will be conditional. He loved you at your worst, and most Christian churches would agree with that initially. They believe you are saved by grace through faith, no matter your history, but that is often where grace stops and religion starts. And religion always puts the emphasis on the external.
I believe marriage is not about two single pieces of material sewn together; it is about thousands of threads of life-experiences from two people woven together as one. So, I waited to find the person with the right threads, the ones that were suitable for our unique marriage tapestry. The result is we are creating a beautiful history together that stems from a love that finds its roots in mutual respect.
A leader is a principal chief captain, guide, master, director, and so on. Leadership is usually an intriguing journey even on a normal day, thinking ahead, planning ahead
of time and forecasting by experience and studying in the past, present predictions of experts.
The sad truth is, we are kept in ignorance with the prevailing teaching which tells us to sow money as seed faith to activate God’s power and receive from Him. BY THIS TEACHING, GOD HAS BEEN PRESENTED AS A FATHER WHO SELLS HIS GIFTS, BLESSINGS, HEALINGS, FAVOURS, TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AMONG HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
We may belittle the abilities, the power, the majesty, the excellency, and the glory that we carry as God’s Temple. But as we grow in the consciousness of the greater One in us, the power of the Godhead that has taken residence in us, the anointing within and upon us, we will begin to have faith not in ourselves, but in His gracious acts, and lay hands on seekers as we’re divinely equipped to do, and as and when the Spirit leads.
My heart’s desire and prayer to God is, ministers will begin to appreciate the importance of impartation and give this act its rightful place in the Church as the Spirit leads.
There are three major ways by which impartation happens to us. A divine impartation or transfer may come directly from God upon believers for them to fulfill a common goal. For instance, when the burden of leadership was becoming too heavy on Moses’ life, he cried out to God about this. God’s response was to get Moses to gather together 70 men of the elders of Israel (Numbers 11:16 – 17).
Without a doubt, the anointing we’ve received in Christ can be maintained and increased in our lives. But it can’t be maintained or increased because someone poured oil on our heads or we anointed ourselves. Honestly, if we can grow in the anointing this way, by someone anointing us with oil, then it will be necessary for local churches to construct anointing oil pools for their members to swim or dive in for greater grace and power.
