  1. My redemption will never perish

“Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

 

  1. Jesus testifies on my behalf that I am clean

“…and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.

  1. I am freed from a conscience defiled by guilt

“let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:22)

 

  1. I am no longer condemned

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)

 

  1. I have been separated from the world and declared holy (wholly) to God

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)

 

  1. I can proclaim total victory

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:11)

 

  1. I can enter boldly into the holiest of holies…and live

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:19-22)

 

  1. I have further revelation of who God is

“Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Hebrews 1:3)

MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN By Pastor John Sigudla

MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN

By Pastor John Sigudla

    • The calling of god has been extended to all the people on earth. We are called from utter darkness to the marvelous light of the Almighty God.
  • We called to be obedient to our creator.
  • We are called to be the light of the world.
  • We are called to be the salt of the world.
  • We are called to represent God wherever we go and are working.
  • We are called to be the ambassadors of Christ in our communities.
  • We are called to take care of our neighbours through our God given lives.
    • BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.
  • This is an extra-mile of God’s choice in the life of a person.
  • Here we see people who leaves everything and serve God full time in their ministries that God has called them to do.
  • Here we find full time workers for God such as pastors, evangelist, prophets, apostles and Teachers of the Word.
  • This is the most difficult task to be in the hand of God full time. Not all are called and chosen in this category. Hence the lesson here below.
  • Others are calling themselves in this very difficult God’s work, and I called them SAP’s Self-Appointed Pastors, Self-Appointed Prophets, Self-Appointed Priests, while others are Self Appointed Bishops, SAB.

 

 

  1. TWO MESSENGERS WHO TOOK THE MESSAGE TO DAVID AFTER THE DEATH OF ABSALOM.

One was Chosen and the other called himself.

2 SAMUEL 18:19-35

 

19Then Zadok’s son Ahimaaz said, “Let me run to the king with the good news that the LORD has saved him from his enemy Absalom.” 20“No,” Joab told him, “It wouldn’t be good news to the king that his son is dead. You can be my messenger some other time, but not today.” Sam 18: 19-20

 

THE APPLICATION OF THIS STORY

  1. Ahimaaz self-appointed messenger
  • Ahimaaz was not called, he called himself. Verse 19.
  • Ahimaaz was stopped from his calling to take the so called Good news to David. Verse 2.
  • He was not thrown away that he cannot be a messenger, but he was told that not now. Verse 20.
  • He ignored the secret and power of waiting or patience. He wanted to serve during his own time and not the appointed time according to the divine appointment.
  • One man was called by God and he said to God “Not now, I am still busy working and later on I will respond. He indeed responded and bought a big tent and instruments and went out preaching and nothing happened. Then he asked God why nothing is happening and God said to him “You responded at your own time and not at God’s appointed time.”

 

  1. THE MAN FROM CUSH [ETHIOPIA] DIVINELY APPOINTED MESSENGER.

 

21Then Joab said to a man from Cush, “Go tell the king what you have seen.” The man bowed and ran off. 22But Ahimaaz continued to plead with Joab, “Whatever happens, please let me go, too.” “Why should you go, my son?” Joab replied. “There will be no reward for you.” 23“Yes, but let me go anyway,” he begged. Joab finally said, “All right, go ahead.” Then Ahimaaz took a shortcut across the plain of the Jordan and got to Mahanaim ahead of the man from Cush. 2 Samuel 20: 21-24

  • When the man from Cush was sent he responded immediately. Verse 21
  • This man had no name, he was called the man from Cush. Cush stands for Africa. He was a man from Africa, who took the message to David the King and not a man from Israel Ahimaaz.
  • God has his own way of doing things beyond our own understanding.
  • The man from Cush bowed down and ran off. Verse 21. We need to run when God calls us and sent us out to serve him. We don’t have to drag our legs when God sent us, but we need to run, criminals are running, bad people of all types are running in order to fulfil their bad intentions, witches are not even running, they are flying using any means of airplanes to fulfil their darkness assignment given to them.
  • The man from Cush ran with the clear message, that Absalom is dead.
  • Ahimaaz insisted that he wanted to go too, verse 22.
  • Ahimaaz was told that there was no reward for him to go there. Verse 22.
  • Ahimaaz admitted that there was no reward for him but still he wanted to go. Verse 23.
  • Ahimaaz was eventually allowed to go on his own accord and not as supposed to be. Verse 23.
  • Ahimaaz since he know that the man of Cush was almost half way, he took a short cut to the place where the message was supposed to be taken.
  • Let us by all means avoid serving God through short cuts.
  • Ministries started yesterday and they took short cuts and they seem to be flourishing and you go there.
  • The work of the Lord need patience and process.
  • God is interested in our character building rather than our eloquence, talent and gifting. They are all needed but the godly character is what is needed.
  • Because of the short cut he took, he arrived first and started giving the message that was not clear. Verse

29“What about young Absalom?” the king demanded. “Is he all right?” Ahimaaz replied, “When Joab told me to come, there was a lot of commotion. But I didn’t know what was   happening.” 30“Wait here,” the king told him.

  1. Conclusion

Ask God to call you to serve him by serving your pastor through prayer and many other ways that I cannot specify, only the Holy Spirit can specify those tasks for you.

  • The Holy Spirit has already given you the way you need to be supportive to the work of the Lord in your local church.
  • The Holy Spirit is not quite about what we are supposed to be doing for him in a local church.
  • Ministry amongst the elderly is a very serious ministry for the elderly to die in the Lord.
  • Ministry amongst the youth is a very important ministry and in big churches in South Africa and Europe, they have full time pastors in this position.
  • Ministry amongst our children is very important as I saw yesterday how the children ministry unfolded with great results, thus Boipelo keep up the good work and may others join you.
  • Music ministry that goes with praise and worship is a very important part of the church ministry that deals with spiritual war-fare. Thus worship team you are doing excellently very well.

I will be starting new project under the framework

THE PROJECTDOITYOURSELF FRAMEWORK

PROJECTDOITYOURSELF: GOAL-SETTING THAT WORKS
At the beginning of last year I wrote down a comprehensive list of goals that I wanted to accomplish and saved this to Evernote so that I could review it often.

I accomplished none of those goals and seldom referred to the list; yet, if you ask me whether I consider last year to have been a success I would say “Hell yes.” So what happened here? I found a better way of thinking about goal-setting and started using a better system…

GOAL-SETTING: CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS
Goal-setting has been lauded and it has been criticised. Some people love it – others hate it. I think goal-setting fails way too often and there are a few layers to this failure:

Judgement failure

Have you ever accomplished something and then lost the drive to continue? Or failed miserably and started wondering why even bother?

You’re not alone.

Unfortunately goal setting is inherently constructed to judge you as a loser or a winner. Being the loser sucks. It demotivates you. It fuels that critical voice in your head. Being the winner is awesome – until it leaves you drifting along with those lost souls who now have no direction.

Although it’s technically and objectively important to judge your actions as successful or unsuccessful, this can become a heavy emotional burden.

What would happen if you changed your thinking towards goal-setting, seeing goals more as a target to aim for than a binary conclusion? What if you separate emotion from data and instead of judging your shortcomings you zero in on your progress?

Time-span failure

There is just no way to know how your life will change in the next 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. Actual life-changing moments happen more frequently than you might imagine. It’s the main reason why I accomplished none of my ‘1st of January’ goals; my life moved in a different direction – one that I hadn’t accounted for at the beginning of the year.

We think we can predict or at least anticipate what the future will bring. We can’t, so we should stop trying.

What would happen if you acknowledged what you intuitively know about what you want to accomplish in the long-run but focused your efforts on the short-game?

Systems failure

The last problem is a systems problem. The amount of goal-setting frameworks at your disposal can be overwhelming and the need to align them all precisely is a painstaking process. Paired with this is the absence of a system that supports your progress along incremental steps.

What would happen if you decided on one framework, stuck with it for a while and then customised it to really suit your individual preferences?

INTRODUCING PROJECTDOITYOURSELF
PROJECTDOITYOURSELF is the name I have given to my current way of setting goals. It’s not unique – few things are. But for me and hundreds of others, it works like a bomb.

How does it work?

Simply; you set 3 Moves (goals) that you want to work towards in the next 28 days.

Let me expand on this.

One book that really changed my thinking on goal-setting is the 12 Week Year by Brian Moran. In it he advocates for setting goals that are 12 weeks into the future and then to further break it down from there.

I have found that a 90 day (12 week) big goal gives great context to the PROJECTDOITYOURSELF So this will be your starting point. To decide on the 1-3 context goals that you want to give attention to for the next 90 days.

Choosing can be hard. It’s supposed to be. Remember that the more your attention is spread across goals/tasks the more diluted it will be.

Once you have your context goal you come to the present day and ask yourself the following question, “Which 3 Moves will produce the biggest results in the next 28 days?”

Again, choosing only 3 is hard.

A Move is simply a goal that you will focus on every day, for 28 days. I liken it to chess in that you strategically move pieces around the board to ultimately defeat your opponent.

As a side note, the ratio here is 1:3. One context goal to 3 Moves.

Each Move has a few criteria:

It should leave you in a better position once completed.
It should require intentional effort and focus from you to execute it.
It should be specific.
So we have our context goal and our 3 Moves for the next 28 days. Now we break it down into daily actions. I stress the daily part here because you need to be working on your Moves every single day. (I realise the previous sentence could work in many different contexts :))

The question here is, “What does a daily, repeatable practice look like?” and I will get to an example in due course.

The success of PROJECTDOITYOURSELF will ride on your ability to sit down every day and review your progress.

You do this by asking yourself three questions:

Did I accomplish my daily practice?
What did I learn?
What can I do better?
And that is PROJECTDOITYOURSELF in its entirety. Once you have reached day 28 you re-assess your progress and confirm 3 new Moves for the next 28 days.

WHY DOES PROJECTDOITYOURSELF WORK?
Because it addresses all the objections I mentioned earlier. It changes the language around goal-setting to make it a more friendly and learning-focused process. It removes judgement. It works with time-frames that are short enough to predict but long enough to give time to do meaningful work. It’s an easy-to-use system that you can stick to and modify as needed.

TWO EXAMPLES
Context goal: Make R5000 p/m from a new business
Move 1: Find a viable niche Daily action: Internet research for 2-3 hours
Move 2: Learn the basics of WordPress Daily action: Complete a tutorial
Move 3: Learn the basics of marketing Daily action: Read and digest 10 pages
Note: This would be a typical PROJECTDOITYOURSELF8 setup. An action done every day that can be repeated without much thought about what needs to be done. You can also have a few different configurations where the moves follow on each other sequentially to get you to a desired scenario by 28 days.

Context goal: Lose 8 kilograms
Move 1: Find and schedule a personal trainer. Daily action: Research and review personal trainers and then make contact.
Move 2: Find and schedule a an appointment with a dietician. Daily action: Research and review dietician and then make contact.
Move 3: Clean cupboards of all junk food. Daily action: Sort through all food and throw away/donate food that no longer align with goals.
In an ideal world, everything happens instantaneously. In the real world, you have to wait to get an appointment and manage your own schedule and responsibilities.

The above configuration does not involve a specific daily action that will be repeated for 28 days but you might find that getting everything done takes time. However, if you accomplished your Moves by the time you reach day 28, then the foundation has been firmly laid for you to move on to your next PROJECTDOITYOURSELF.

You might also find that completing all of the above only takes a week. What do you do then? You start over.PROJECTDOITYOURSELF is not bound to actual days of the week or month. It is based on stand-alone goals that you can rework at any time.

THE SECRET OF DAVID IN HIS LEADERSHIP By Rev V.J. Sigudla

23Joab once again became the commander of David’s army. Benaiah son of Jehoiada was commander of the king’s bodyguard. 24Adoniram was in charge of the labor force. Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian. 25Sheva was the court secretary. Zadok and Abiathar were the priests. 26Ira the Jairite was David’s personal priest. 2 Samuel 20:23-26

David the man after God’s heart. It is very important to understand why God called him “The man after God’s heart” it was not himself who called himself “The man after God’s heart”

You don’t have to call yourself by titles but let the people see who you are and be the ones who calls you by titles.

  1. The secret of David’s successful leadership.
  • He appointed people into positions of power to help him with the great work ahead of him.
  • Joab was appointed the commander of David’s army. Verse 23
  • Benaiah son of Jehoiada was the commander of the king’s body guard.
  • Adoniram was in charge of the labour force.
  • Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was the royal historian.
  • Sheva was the court secretary.
  • Zadok and Abiathar were the priests, general priests for all the army and people of Israel.
  • Ira the Jaitrite was David’s personal priest. This one’s work was to pray and advice king David in the spiritual things regarding his service for the Lord. Kings were supposed to please God at all costs. Hence the personal priest for David.
  1. WE NEED PRAYER PARTNERS WHO WILL SERVE US THROUGH PRAYER.
  • Pastors and servants of God need people who will minister to them through prayers, and spiritual advice. For people to qualify to do such a high calling they need to qualify and be fully appointed by god in the lives of the servants of God. Not every Christian can be able to do this high calling. The high calling involves the following:
  • Regularly praying for your pastor wherever you are, no need to go to the pastor and pray over him or her.
  • Regularly serving your pastor by going where he sent you to go for him in his work such as visiting some members on behalf of the pastor.
  • Regularly listen to God for divine revelation that you need to quantify before you can tell them to the pastor. You become Nathan who was used by God to speak to David and David trusted Nathan that is why he listened to Nathan when he was speaking to him.
  • You too, as a spoke person of God, you need to have a good attitude and good approach to the servant of God. He must have full trust in you and respect of the highest order.
  • Elishah literally served Elijah

Elisha accepted this call about four years before the death of Israel’s King Ahab. For the next seven or eight years Elisha became Elijah’s close attendant until Elijah was taken up into heaven.

Elisha was appointed by Elijah as his successor and had been his attendant for six years. Elijah served as head prophet, and Elisha worked closely with him, being known as the one who “poured out water upon the hands of Elijah” when Elijah washed his hands.—2Ki 2:3-5; 3:11. 

  • It is indeed a privilege to serve servants of God, and you don’t have to overdo it, do as the spirit lead.
  • You can serve also by taking care of the pastor’s children while they are out shopping.
  • The most high calling to serve your pastor is to pray for him daily and intercede for them greatly so that they should not take short cuts in serving God.
  1. TWO MESSENGERS WHO TOOK THE MESSAGE TO DAVID AFTER THE DEATH OF ABSALOM.

One was called and the other called himself.

2 SAMUEL 18:19-35

 

19Then Zadok’s son Ahimaaz said, “Let me run to the king with the good news that the LORD has saved him from his enemy Absalom.” 20“No,” Joab told him, “it wouldn’t be good news to the king that his son is dead. You can be my messenger some other time, but not today.”

THE APPLICATION OF THIS STORY

  1. Ahimaaz self-appointed messenger
  • Ahimaaz was not called, he called himself. Verse 19.
  • Ahimaaz was stopped from his calling to take the so called Good news to David. Verse 2.

He indeed responded and bought a big tent and instruments and went out preaching and nothing happened. Then he asked God why nothing is happening and God said to him “You responded at your own time and not at God’s appointed time.”
  1. Cush divinely appointed messenger.

21Then Joab said to a man from Cush, “Go tell the king what you have

seen.” The man bowed and ran off. 22But Ahimaaz continued to plead

with Joab, “Whatever happens, please let me go, too.” “Why should you go, my son?” Joab replied. “There will be no reward for you.” 23“Yes, but let me go anyway,” he begged. Joab finally said, “All right, go ahead.” Then Ahimaaz took a shortcut across the plain of the Jordan and got to Mahanaim ahead of the man from Cush. S Samuel 20: 21-24

We don’t have to drag our legs when God sent us, but we need to run, criminals are running, bad people of all types are running in order to fulfil their bad intentions, witches are not even running, they are flying using any means of airplanes to fulfil their darkness assignment given to them.

IN YOUR DESPERATION SITUATION, DON’T FALL INTO THE HANDS OF PEOPLE. Bread of life Devotional thought By Pastor Vusimusi John Sigudla

desperate

14“This is a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great. Do not let me fall into human hands.” 2 SAMUEL 23:14

 

  1. INTRODUCTION.

Truly David blundered and deserved to be punished by God. The choice as usual our God gives to his love ones since he need to punish us as his children because of love. The choice God give to us is because we have a will that God has given us that we need to use to make choices in life either for good or for bad. God is not prepared to remote control us.

  1. David’s blunder [mistake] went with some serious consequences.

I am responsible and accountable for any decision and action I take. I need to answer for any action I take either for good or for bad. This was indeed the case with David.

  • He was warned first by Joab not to execute the censures but he didn’t want to listen.
  • The danger of not listening causes more harm than good.
  • David had to be confronted with three choices to make as a punishment and all three choices where extremely difficult. None of them was better than the other.

13So Gad came to David and asked him, “Will you choose three years of famine throughout the land, three months of fleeing from your enemies, or three days of severe plague throughout your land? Think this over and let me know what answer to give the LORD.”2 Samuel 23:13

  • Famine for three years, how many people were going to lose their lives in the three years?
  • Three months if fleeing from your enemies. David had already experienced fleeing from enemies, the worse was from his own son Absalom bare footed. He also experienced fleeing from King Saul who wanted to kill him. Therefore David was tired and old to start all over again in his old age to run away from his enemies, enemies that were not even specified who they were going to be.
  • In life we have many enemies, merciless enemies and missiles enemies that care less about us. Both merciless and missiles enemies are most dangerous.
  • David was tired to start all over again running away from these enemies he never knew who they were going to be.
  • Three days of severe plague [illness outbreak that no one knows, pandemic, severe unknown illness, and infection] throughout your land.
  • Just imagine people dying doctors failing to know the kind of diseases, people falling down at work dead. People falling down driving and lose their lives. Accidents that will take place of people being killed by diseases that they never knew before. Schools being closed because teachers are ill and children are also affected by many illnesses, chaos after chaos will be the order of the day.
  1. DAVID’S CHOICE.

None of the three was chosen by David since none of the three was better than the other.

David just said 14“This is a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great. Do not let me fall into human hands.” 2 SAMUEL 23:14

 

  • This is indeed a desperate situation.
  • Desperate situation is a situation beyond human comprehension
  • Desperation situation is a situation that cannot be easily solved.
  • Desperation situation is a situation that everybody run away from.
  • Desperation situation is a situation that has reached a boiling point.
    • Then David chose to fall into the hands of the Lord , for one firm reason, “ For his mercy is Great”
    • David cried out and prayed not to fall into humans hands.
  • Batho ga ba siama and are very cruel.
  • He chose to be in the hands of God rather than be in the hands of the people.
  • In our desperation situation, stay in the hands of God rather in the hands of the people.
  • People are merciless and full of revenge.
  • People are all out to destroy you, but God is there to rebuild you.
  • People are all out to show you how useless you are, but God is all out to protect and fight for you. Psalm 121: 1-8

The cry and the choice of David was never over looked by God.

The same God of David is here to take care of our petitions and cry and our humiliation by this world and make us what we are supposed to be. Let us fall in the hands of our Almighty God rather than falling in the hands of the people.
