A PSALM of Jesse J. Mirega

PSALM 1
How Majestic is your name Oh ancient of days,
Every creature bows down at the thought of your name;
The trees sway and whistle at every brush of the wind,
The mountains quake and wake the earth from deep slumber.
The bear runs to the hills, the deer to the forest and the mountain lion to its cave,
For no man or beast can contend with his maker,
But to man you bestowed great favor and might,
In your own image and likeness you created him.
What can I say to my Lord; whose countenance is beyond comprehension,
To stand before you is judgement; and to gaze at your face is death.
But because of your Love and compassion,
You embraced me with great gentleness.
My Lord said unto me; draw near my son,
And feel the warmth of my embrace.
His heartbeat causes me to prostrate,
As His smile awakens a thirst for worship.
What can I compare to your Love,
For you created me out of nothing,
Making me to be a vessel of honour in the face of the Earth!!!

THE HEART OF GOD!!!

images (1)

When one thinks of this, what really comes to mind? I’d say the Heart of God is the Inner Self of God. His very Being and foundation on which His characters and attributes are built upon. It’s this very part of Him that we think of when we Hear Him talk of David as a man after His own heart (1Samuel 13:14/ Acts 13:22). It also comes to mind when we consider the following scriptures;- Gen. 6:6, 1Sam. 2:35, Job 7:17, Jer. 3:15 & Matt. 6:21.

So, why is understanding and knowing the Heart of God very vital to a believer? To answer this we need to consider our general views of God. We always see God’s attributes as Holy, Just, gracious among others. We see Him as a God of Judgement & Mercy at the same time with equal measure. A God who can wipe out an entire nation in a microsecond because of one man’s sin & can also save an entire sinful world because of one man’s sacrifice.
This brings us to the most intriguing question that even baffled angels. What is man that you think of him? (Job 7:17, Psalm 8:4-6, 144:3). The answer to this is in what God’s heart says about Him. We know that the words of the psalmist quoted in Hebrew refers to Christ. But what would make God go to such great lengths for the sake of a sinful mortal man who has no regard for God and anything that associates with Him? The answer still is in what His heart says about Him. These thoughts led me to consider a number of things as a Minister of the Gospel

Many believers in ministry desire to win souls for the lost in fulfillment of the great commission commanded by Jesus Christ. But would this be at any cost necessary? We also desire to operate in Great Signs and Wonders, Diverse Miracles and Various Gifts of The Holy Spirit without limits. We even have various scriptures in the Bible to back our quest in achieving all these. Whether we become successful soul winners followed by great signs and manifestations or not we always forget one Most Fundamental & Vital Factor;- do our methods and procedures in achieving all these matter? Or is it enough for people to be born again, healed and delivered regardless of how this is achieved?

Of course it all matters because God’s dealings and affairs with Humanity are eternally embedded at the Centre of His Heart. Whoever understands this will not only be a Man after God’s own Heart but will in essence portray the Very Spitting Image of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
How so you may ask. Well, one may be a great servant of God be it Pastor, Evangelist, Prophet, Teacher or Apostle full of the Holy Spirit, operating in great Signs an Manifestations but without what is in the very heart of God running through his spirit He can neither be a man after God’s own Heart but nor even portray a Spitting Image of God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is evident in scripture such that although God had many servants in the Bible who lived holy and righteous lives only David found His way into God’s very heart despite his many sins.

So we need to understand that even though it is very key for us believers to fulfill our mandate not only as believers but as disciples of Jesus Christ, how we do it can really warm God’s heart and secure for us a soft spot in Him. So as we evangelize and go about God’s business we need to understand, live and personalize the three key Characteristics that are embedded at the very hearts of God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit.

LOVE – The Father
There’s no way one can think of God the Father without thinking of His love. Until we understand How God’s love for an ungrateful, sinful human being who has no regard for anything God works without compromising His Holiness, Justice Truth then there’s no way we can claim not only to harbour the Father’s Love within us but also personalize it and be able to affect those around us with the same love. We can’t display The Father effectively as well with Signs and Wonders to others if they can’t pick The Father’s Love out of us. (Eph. 2:4, 5:2, 1 John 3:1, 4:7-12,20)

COMPASSION – Jesus Christ
I dare say it is the compassion that Jesus Christ had towards the people that catapulted the miraculous virtue out of him to those he was ministering to. There’s no where in scripture you’ll find it recorded that he healed the sick or fed the hungry without his compassion towards them being mentioned or displayed. It would therefore be so wrong for us as believers to minister to others out of duty as if it is a job without affection and compassion towards those we are assisting. Whether we like it or not as ministers of God, we can’t detach ourselves from those we serve. Service to people as ministers of God is not an act of a job or employment but an act of relationship. We must connect to every one we serve in compassion just as Jesus Christ did. (Matt. 9:36-37, 14:14, 20:34, Mark 1:40-41, 5:18-20, Luke 7:13-16)

GENTLENESS – Holy Spirit
This has been recorded as part of the Fruit of The Holy Spirit in Galatians 5:22. Any believer without being told would know that every description used in scripture especially the New Testament to refer to the Holy Spirit is associated with His gentle nature. He doesn’t force Himself on any one and never imposes anything. He’s so gentle that to Him are added scriptural warnings on grieving Him, quenching Him & blaspheming Him. Now how better to display the Holy Spirit at work in us by emanating the Fullness of His Fruit in us through our gentle nature rather than trying to prove how best we can pray in or interpret tongues or even trying to show how many gifts of the Spirit we can operate in.Affecting others with the very nature of the Holy Spirit in us rubbing off on them goes a long way than trying to push down their throats how much we can operate in His gifts, how so often we hear from Him or whatever He’s saying. People need to see the Holy Spirit in us and through us more than what we’re telling them that He’s saying or the gifts we operate in. (Gal. 5:22, 2 Tim. 2:24, Titus 3:2, James 3:17).
So as we Witness about God, let the LOVE of the Father, the COMPASSION of the Son and The GENTLENESS of the Holy Spirit in us flow out as Fresh Fountains towards those we interact with and minister to. Because this is what God’s Heart looks like.

THE MOVE OF THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST (End Time Move)

(Part A)
As we go through the scriptures, we see the engagements and manifestations of God among His people come in different nature’s and forms.

1) In the Old Testament we see a lot of Manifestations of God the Father through many SIGNS and WONDERS. We see this through the Ten Plagues in Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea, The thunder, fire, earthquake and smoke on mount Sinai, the pillar of fire and cloud in the wilderness, the cloud on the Temple when Solomon built it among others.
2) When we move to the Gospels we see a shift in engagements and manifestations move directly from the Father to the Son. Here we see Jesus manifesting through DIVERSE MIRACLES which are too numerous to mention.
3) When Jesus exits He introduces the Holy Ghost who started manifesting Himself on the Day of Pentecost. From then on we see direct engagements of God with His people through the third person of the Godhead who is the Holy Ghost. And more so, the tangible evidence of His Presence is manifested through the GIFTS of The HOLY GHOST.
What about the days we live in? These are the Last Days and what does scripture say about the Last Days? The clue is in the scriptures themselves as indicated below:-

(Part B)
ENGAGEMENTS and MANIFESTATIONS Of GOD WITH HIS PEOPLE IN THE LAST DAYS
In the Prophecy of Joel about the Last Days, he speaks of God showing wonders in Heaven and Earth;- Blood, Fire & Pillars of smoke. Those in the Spirit will understand that this is the Manifestation of not only the Holy Ghost but the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
This is also talked of by the writer of Hebrews when he speaks of God Bearing WITNESS of those who heard Him by SIGNS & WONDERS, DIVERSE MIRACLES & GIFTS of THE HOLY GHOST in Hebrews 2:4!
We all Know that this talks of God Bearing WITNESS of His SONS as talked of by Paul in Romans 8:19 through Manifestations of The Father, Son and The Holy Ghost respectively as we see in Hebrews 2:4. So this last move is that of The Father, Son and The Holy Ghost combined, and they have just begun to manifest. Greater is yet to come. You may ask; how is this so? Well, consider the following;-

(Part C)
THE LAST MOVE OF GOD ON EARTH
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” 1 John 5:7-8 (KJV)
Consider the above scriptures, forget what Theology may have taught some of us (me included 😊). We see John talking of THE FATHER, THE WORD & THE HOLY GHOST. Then says these Three BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN. And that they are ONE. In the Following verse he talks of THE SPIRIT, THE WATER & THE BLOOD. That these THREE BEAR WITNESS ON EARTH. And the THREE AGREE IN ONE.
Here we see Three Things;-
1) A transition from FATHER, WORD AND HOLY GHOST to SPIRIT BLOOD and WATER respectively
2) Record in Heaven to Witness in Earth
3) Three are One to Three Agree in One.
Do we see it? Let me explain;-
Many Believers have always understood that it’s only Christ who came down to Earth when He was born of the Virgin Mary. You’ll realize this was not the case.
John was the first to get the Revelation. The Word in Heaven came to Earth and became Flesh; John 1:14. Paul talks of Him as Second Adam 1 Cor. 15:45 and in Hebrew Adam Means one of Blood. So we see how in 1 John 5:7-8 WORD transitions to BLOOD.
You may ask, what of the Father and Holy Ghost? Well, when Jesus was conceived and transitioned from WORD to one with BLOOD, He was not the only one, an He was not Alone.
The FATHER became Spirit and Holy Ghost Water the very moment the Word became Flesh. I don’t need to explain this, but consider how Jesus speaks of them in John 3:5-> Born of Water & Spirit/ Born of Holy Ghost and Father-> (1John 5:4), Father is Spirit -> John 4:23-24, Rivers of Living Water/Holy Ghost -> John 7:38-39.

So having gone through all these, are we Ready for the Witness of the Spirit, Water & Blood?? Which is Manifestations through SIGNS and WONDERS (Father), DIVERSE MIRACLES (Son) & GIFTS of THE HOLY GHOST (Holy Spirit) ??
Well, if we witness this then we are staring in The Face the LAST MOVE of God on Earth. This is the Witness the Godhead bears of His SONS on Earth by Manifesting Them (Romans 8:19).
AND THESE THREE AGREE IN ONE!!!
Shalom

WORSHIP IN HEAVEN!!!

This is an account of the experience I had before The Throne of God when I was taken to Heaven in the spirit to have a glimpse and taste of the Heavenly Worship sometime in Mid-October 2016:-

👇
Worship in Heaven involves a number of characters and elements. I’ll look at some of these in due process. These are The Father on His Throne who is The Consuming Fire, Jesus Christ The Lord of Hosts on His Throne as well, The Altar Before The Throne, The Mercy Seat which is Christ’s Throne, The Cherubims, The Seraphims, The Four Living Creatures, The Twenty Four Elders, The Hosts of Heaven that include all the Angels, The Cloud of Witnesses who are the Heroes of Faith and The Multitudes who are all the Saints dressed in white.
In Heavenly Worship, all the senses are activated spiritually in that You can see, hear, touch, smell and taste the music and songs in heaven. When the instrumentalists play their music one is able to see all manner of musical notes arising out of their instruments into the atmosphere. You are also able to see all the colours of the rainbow and many other colours as well which are indescribable rise out of the musical instruments. The notes and colours also come out of the lips of every one worshipping. At times you would see as if flames of fire or torrentous waterfalls come out of the lips of those worshipping. The type and nature of the notes, colours, flames and waterfalls depend on the type, nature and intensity of the worship.
You can also smell the worship, sometimes you get the smell of incense, sometimes myrrh, freshly ground olives among other numerous indescribable sweet smelling scents and fragrances.
During worship; the more intense the worship gets, the more the Glory of The Father and The Son increases.
Whenever The Father sighs there are great tremors in heaven which cause everyone to worship the more. Whenever He speaks there are great thunders, lightnings and smoke all over Heaven. The best part is this;- Whenever the Father rises from His Throne even for a brief moment every living creature in heaven lies prostrate out of Awe having been slain by His Terrible Enormous Power. This causes Great Silence and Stillness in Heaven until The Father gets back to His Throne again. You may ask what about Jesus Christ! Well, He just sits on the Throne and enjoys the worship and adoration as His glory increases since His work was already Finished on The Cross.
Well, how about that!!

THE DEPTHS OF THE SPIRITUAL REALM!!!

Have you ever asked yourself the question how DEEP should one immerse into the Spiritual Realm in their encounter with God?

Psalms 42:7 “Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.”

Ecclesiastes 7:24 “That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?”

Luke 5:4 “Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.”

What if I tell you that there are Three Levels/ Depths into the Spiritual Realm to get to the Heart of God.

Level 1

THE DEPTH OF REVELATIONS
This is a level of encounter with God. It’s a level that brings one into a personal knowledge of God that TRANSCENDS HUMAN KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM and LOGIC. If your knowledge of God depends on Human Knowledge, Wisdom and Logic then you’re still very far from this encounter. But if your Knowledge of God depends on Revelations drawn from a personal walk and fellowship with the Holy Ghost, then you’ve started launching into the Depths of the Spiritual Realm. John 16:12-15. It is in this level where the Mysteries of God begin to be unveiled to us as believers. If you find yourself here, don’t rejoice coz you’ve just broken through into the elementary level. Getting revelations of the mysteries of God just shows that you are heading in the right direction. It’s not an end or destination by itself. Greater Depths lie beneath. Job 33:14-15, Romans 16:25-26, 1 Cor. 2:9-10, Ephesians 3:3-5, Colossians 1:26-28.

Level 2
THE DEPTH OF TRUE WORSHIP
This is a level of True Worship in the spirit. It is a level of Utmost Love, Sacrifice and Adoration to God. It is in this Level that you DIE to self and everything you consider of value that you may live for Christ. That is True Worship because it is at this point that the Flesh dies so that the Spirit may live. It has no room for childish strife’s of the Flesh between Believers and Ministers of God. A level of being a True Worshiper & True Disciple of Jesus Christ by being Christlike (True Image) and not ‘Christish’ (imitation) This level TRANSCENDS the NATURAL and Ushers the Believer into the SUPERNATURAL. It’s the only level that will LITERALLY open the Gates of TheSupernatural into a believer’s life. Whoever immerses into this level will move and operate in the supernatural 24/7, Always Dwelling and Abiding in God’s presence. Psalms 51:16-17, Luke 9:23, 14:27, John 4:23-24, Philippians 1:21, 3:7-8;12-15, Colossians 2:12-13, Galatians 2:20, 5:24-26, 6:8, 1 Peter 2:11, 1 John 4:16-21.

Level 3
THE DEPTH OF GLORY
This is the 3rd and last level or depth into the Spiritual Realm. This is the depth of the Consuming Fire Himself. It is a 24/7 Atmosphere of Glory. It is a level where the flesh cannot thrive. It is a level of Utmost BROKENNESS and HUMILITY. It is a level where your greatest desire is to continue decreasing while Christ increases in you as you lie prostate in deep Worship and Surrender. The amazing thing about this level is that it TRANSCENDS SPACE and TIME meaning it can’t be measured in terms of Space and Time according to Human understanding. At this Level you’ll be able to understand how Christ died even before the creation of the earth only to be manifested 4000 years later because that Spiritual event can’t be measured in our time. At this level you’ll be able to understand that when Christ went to preach to the souls in hell, he did not only preach to those who went before him chronologically but also to our forefathers who were yet to come thousands of years later and die without ever hearing the Gospel. Now, I warn you if you try to use human logic and timeline to understand this truth you’ll get lost. I also said it transcends space; by this you’ll be able to understand how Philip was translated supernaturally in the blink of an eye from where he baptised the Ethiopian Eunuch to a place called Azotus (Acts 8:39-40). Those who get to this depth will always operate in the Atmosphere of Glory in Utmost Humility and Brokenness giving no compromise to the Truth of the Word of God, and no tolerance of Sin and the works of the Flesh. In this level a Believer is able to operate in an atmosphere that transcends Space and Time held by Human Understanding. Exodus 33:18-23, Isaiah 40:3-5, Haggai 2:7-9, John 17:5, 22, 2 Corinthians 3:12-18.

So I ask again; How DEEP do you Want or Desire to immerse yourself into the Spiritual Realm as you encounter God??? Ask God for Abundant Grace and the Holy Ghost to guide you as you take this personal Quest of knowing God. And in the process preparing yourself Body Spirit and Soul for all Demands the Lord would bring your way. Shalom!!!

THE FINAL HARVEST

The Seven of Seven Revivals (49)
In my previous teaching on the Revival I emphasized a lot on Seven of Seven Revivals from the Day of Pentecost to the time of Jesus Second Coming. The question is why is this important, why Forty Nine and what does the Bible say about it?

THE SEVEN SABBATHS AND THE JEWISH HARVESTS
The Sabbaths
The first time we come across the number Forty Nine in the scriptures is when God is giving Moses instructions concerning the Sabbaths. God tells Moses that every six years they shall till the land and the Seventh year shall be a Sabbath to the land. He then tells them to count Seven Sabbaths which is equivalent to Forty Nine years after which the Trumpet of Jubilee shall be sounded on the Tenth day of the Seventh month. The Fiftieth year shall therefore be the year of Jubilee (Leviticus 25:3,4,8-12).

So, how is this connected to the harvests and why Forty Nine? To answer this we have to Trace it back from The Day of Pentecost.
The Harvests
The Day of Pentecost fell on the Fiftieth Day which marked the end of Harvest in the Jewish calendar at which the Feast of Weeks (Festival of Shavu’ot) was marked.
To look at this deeply, from the scriptures we understand that the Jewish people had to mark Seven Weeks of Harvest According to the instructions given to Moses. This would bring the number to Forty Nine days (Deut. 16:9). They were then to mark The Feast of Weeks at the end of Harvest which brings us to the Fiftieth Day thus, The day of Pentecost (Deut. 16:10).
How is this tied to the Sabbaths? We’ll, there are Seven Sabbaths which brings us to The year of Jubilee and Seven Weeks of Harvest which brings us to the Feast of Weeks that coincides with Pentecost. But more to this, we see God directing the Children of Israel to bring in a number of offerings from the Harvest on various Sabbaths. So here we realize that for every Sabbath there was an offering given and every offering must have come from a particular Harvest (Lev. 23:15-21).
The Final Harvest
This is the most important part in three ways;-
First is the kind of offering to be offered Fifty Days after the Seventh Sabbath, second is on the proclamation that they were to make and third was the nature and conditions for the harves to be made (Lev. 23:15-22).
Having looked at these we find Three very important facts about the Revivals. First is The Sabbaths, Second is the Harvests and Third is the Seven Sevens which is Forty Nine. But The Most important thing which we find as a unifying Factor between The Old Covenant and The New Covenant, The House of Israel and The Body of Christ is The Day of Pentecost. This is because it marked the End of one Era and the Beginning of a New Era that begins the fulfilment of the Prophecy of Joel.

HE IS COMING!!
So what shall we say then? Whenever Jesus talked about the harvest and labourers, He spoke to an audience which understood the Sabbaths and the Harvests and so they could relate. This is important for us to understand as Believers so that we may know what this means to our timeline (Joel 3:13, Mark 4:29, Rev. 14:14-16).
As I said before, and I say it again;- the Harvest of The Church began at The Day of Pentecost, and we’ve already had Six sets of Seven Harvests. The Seventh set of Seven, which is THE FINAL HARVEST, is just about to explode. Can you see it? Do you perceive it? He is coming!! 👉🏽 J.J.M.

The Seven of Seven Revivals Before Jesus Comes Back

From the day of Pentecost till the time Jesus comes back there are Seven major Revivals which have to take place across the world. These seven major revivals have ripples totaling to Seven Revivals of each with and including the Seven Major Revivals. This would total up to 49 Revivals before Jesus comes back. Now we know the significance of the number 49 in the Bible, but that’s a discussion for another day. Well, let me start us off by giving us an example of the Seven first Revivals in the Bible that came out of Pentecost; –
1) The Revival on the Day of Pentecost – Acts 2

2) The Revival at Samaria – Acts 8:5-17

3) The Revival at Caesarea – Acts 10-11

4) The Revival at Antioch – Acts 11:19-30

5) Paul’s 1st Missionary Journey & Revivals – Acts 13-14

6)Paul’s Second Missionary Journey & Revivals – Acts 15:36-18:22

7)Paul’s 3rd Missionary Journey & Revivals – Acts 18:23-20:38. From this First of Seven Revivals that begun at Pentecost Six sets of Seven Revivals have already passed ushering us into the Last Hour.
And now, we are at a Breaking Forth of the Seventh of Seven Revivals and the Last Revivals before Jesus comes back. Can you see it? The Harvest is Ripe! This is The Final Harvest!! Do you perceive it? He Is Coming!!!
