Greetings Pastor Kasanda L. Tshilenge,

I just want to share with you a message that God spoke to me and I believe it will help individuals in the church and those around us to grow spiritually in God. The way God spoke to me was like, He really has great plans and extraordinary blessings he wants to pour out onto our lives this year 2011. We just have to believe in a little thing called ‘radical faith’. We need to be who God wants us to be and to be where God wants us to be in everyday of our lives.

The Bible indicates that, whatsoever you desire when you pray, believe you have received and you shall have it; not that you are going to receive it, but YOU HAVE IT! That is what we call radical faith. Many of us go into our daily lives feeling insecure, abandoned, heartbroken, guilty, disappointed, or defeated. We keep looking back at our past defeats, our failures and disappointments, we think our situations will never get any better in fact we go about imagining only how worse it could get. We think that we were not meant to have joy, peace or happiness or enjoy in the abundance of God’s blessings, we are worried or afraid about how the next days will be.

When we have all these feelings and negative thoughts, we no longer see the importance of living. We begin to feel as though our goals and dreams which we have always wanted to achieve can no longer be accomplished. It seems like our deepest heart desires are just a fantasy, like they are so impossible for anyone to achieve. Success in education, communication in family, finding friends, marriage, getting a promotion, having children, or getting the job that you always wanted, all seem to be concepts that are far from possible to you.

However, God wants us to look beyond these situations. God is trying to remind us of how great His power is. He never changes. If He could do it for Joseph in the Bible, if He could do it for Jacob, for Moses, for David, for Daniel, He is a God who is able to do it for you too. God wants us to know that we are His masterpiece, His own work of Art. His most valued prized possession. God wants us to know that we are loved, cared for, and by His grace we can walk with our head held up high and our shoulders back because we can be certain that He will redeem us from the trials we face. If we can only surrender all our troubles before Him and believe that He is a God that can do the extraordinary and that He is able to do the extraordinary. God will help us fulfill the mission He alone has called us to do here on the earth which He created. As Job 37:5 says, “At God’s command amazing things happen, wonderful things that we can’t understand”.

We need to walk with confidence. We need to be people who can dwell on past victories instead of past defeats. We need to stop focussing on the why’s; “why did my marriage breakdown?”, or “why did that person get healed and I didn’t?”, or “why does that person have many friends, while I find it hard to find even a single one?”, and stop giving each other excuses as to why we cannot push on forward into path that God wants us to take. We need to be people who can press forward in any situation no matter how many set backs try to pull us down.

We need to be people who love and trust that the Lord will achieve for us what is unachievable to man, as long as we dedicate our lives to Him. Because we trust and believe in Him, God will substitute our failures with success, He will take our weakness and make them into strengths, for He is a God who is able. For no handicap can keep us from becoming all that God has created us to be. God wants us to know that when He created us he equipped us with the tools that we need to reach where He wants us to go. To achieve the dreams that so many people have told us we cannot achieve.

I believe that the power of God is using our church, our families, our friends, and our lives. Our God is doing the unthinkable. I believe 2011 is a year of harvest for those who have sown seeds and have been patiently waiting for it to grow. God is eager to reach out to us, He is eager to show us how much He loves us, He is eager to reveal to us how we too can enjoy his abundant blessings; if only we can give Him a chance to do so. If only we can allow Him to rule our lives. To let Him in, to tell Him our deepest secrets, our deepest desires, goals and dreams in our lives. Since He is Alpha and Omega, He will surely see us through any situation.

Alright, here is what God told me we need to do:
1.    We need to be strategic and make plans - God does not only bless us because we have a plan but He wants us to write it and make it plain. We also need to let our actions run up with what we wrote. (We could have done this at the beginning of the year but in God it is never too late to tell Him how we feel.)
2.    When we ask God to do something we must surely believe or have faith that He has already given it to us. - We need to be able to write out our plans for this year on a piece of paper.
3.    Then we need to take an envelope and pray about the things we have written down believing that we have already received these things.
4.    It is at the end of the year that we can then look back at what we wrote and witness the wonderful things God has accomplished in our lives.


Could you please provide for the church envelopes and good writing paper, and pens if possible?
People can write their plans at church or at home, whatever they feel most comfortable. As long as they are in the presence of God and the Holy Spirit directs thoughts.

May God continue to release and increase supernatural blessings in our lives as well as, provide us with the wisdom and wealth. Let us give this year to God so that we can enjoy the full favour of his hand. Let our lives be a living testimony of Christ’s work in us. Because we believe in Christ Jesus, we need not to assume the worst about ourselves, but we need to assume the best. We have the fingerprints of God all over us; with Him we can accomplish the supernatural.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
 (Genesis 1:1)

The Holy Bible begins with a very firm, true and affirmative statement, “God created the heavens and the earth.” The Holy Bible says that He also created different kinds of beings to live in them. Furthermore, God established spiritual beings, such as angels to live in heaven. He dispatched on earth different kinds of greens, animals and human beings. God created them all with clear plans and purposes for His own pleasure and satisfaction.

Ever since, history and experiences of all times have proven that both human beings and other creatures alike live in heaven and on earth, and are connected to God’s truths. The very truths are connected to His plans and purposes to enhance positive outcomes. It has been clear that every life God created, both things and beings depend on how much they are connected as well as, to His plans and purposes.

When in heaven, a group of angels decided to live outside God’s plans and purposes; they ceased to be angels to become Satan and demons. In the case of human beings, the consequences of leaving God’s plans and purposes were that they got corrupted and became appalling in mind. Hatred and its offsprings came forth to become a channel of every weakness, misery and death. Men began to get sick, suffered different kinds of troubles and died as a result. Human being’s life ever since became as that of a fish in and outside water.

Human beings have a special grace from God. They have possibilities to know God’s truths and live by them in order to get an abundant and blessed life. That was the reason why in man’s early days, God taught him the truth of the tree of the knowledge and of good and evil. He said to Adam in the Garden of Eden, “But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you should surely die” (Genesis 2:17). This is an example of truths one should know in order to lead a God blessed and abundant life.

God, in the Holy Bible said to Israel, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priest; because you have ignored the law of your God, I will also ignore your children” (Hosea 4:6). “To the Jews who had believed Him, Jesus said, if you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32). In His last prayer Jesus Christ disclosed this, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent (John 17:3).”

God’s plans and purposes for His creations are all found in the Holy Bible for everyone who wants to know, believe and live by them. They express in them God’s mind and heart. Out of His love, God has put these things in the Bible for mankind to know and live by them for blessing as well as abundant life. It is for this reason, Pastor Kasanda Luc Tshilenge at Greenwood City Church in Perth, has opened the Siloam Gospel Centre Blog to share God’s word with everyone, in Perth and around the world, both Christians and non-Christians for revelation, salvation, edification, spiritual growth and glorification.

May God bless you all!
