The Gladiators for God e-book series

This is Pieter de Waal with the eighth article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 8 - "The G4G e-book series"

Last week I shared with you about my Gladiators for God
e-book series and about the first e-book in In the Gladiators for God series, called Lose Your Load,

Lose Your Load, teaches you about the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. It explains how the kingdom of darkness operates and how to counter it.

Click here to get the Lose-Your-Load e-book.

To understand God's working with us and in us, we also need to understand who we ourselves are and how we function.
Lose Your Load goes into very specific details regarding the various elements that make us who we are and how we interact with the world, with the spiritual realm and even within ourselves.

Lose Your Load also shows you how the enemy tries to affect you in each area of your life and how these attacks can be countered by using the Helmet of Salvation and the Breastplate of Righteousness.

These chapters are as powerful as it gets. They cover demonology and spiritual warfare and contain tools for
setting you free and giving you a victorious life.

Knowing the armor of God is knowing Jesus. Each weapon in the armor reflects a different part of His character and as you get to know Him better, your armor accordingly gets strengthened.

All these phases are clearly demarcated in the
Tabernacle of Moses, which is also a picture of Jesus.

The other two books in the G4G series are called
Dare to Dream and Grab the Glory respectively. They will soon be available in e-book format. Dare to dream covers God's process as it relates to the Holy Place of the tabernacle and Grab the Glory as it relates to the Most Holy Place.

The Gladiators for God series as a whole will provide you with a step-by-step guide for your spiritual walk, showing you all the divine phases and providing you with the required tools for making all the transitions.

The Transitions

This is Pieter de Waal with the seventh article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 7 - "The Transitions"

In my previous session, I demonstrated to you that for God's promises to you to come true you must activate them by progressively entering deeper into Christ as depicted by the Tabernacle of Moses. Today I am going to speak about the various transitions in your spiritual growth.

The entrances of the tabernacle were respectively known
by the Israelites as "the way", "the truth" and "the life".

The Way was the name of the gate into the outer court,
The Truth was the name of the door to the holy place and
The Life was the name of the veil to the holy of holies.

Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life;
no one goes to the Father except by me
." [John 14:6]

The Tabernacle is therefore a shadow of Jesus Himself.

Only in and through Jesus can we get to the Father
and
only at the Father can God's promises to us be fulfilled.

Looking at the Tabernacle, we note that it was divided into three main parts. Of these three, the Outer Court could be entered by anyone, but the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place could only be entered by priests and by High Priests respectively.

Those who desired to enter enter into the next part of the tabernacle first had to undergo special preparations before they could do so. The same is true for us. Unless we undergo special preparations, God will not allow us to pass from the one phase of our spiritual walk to the next.

Each if these transitions from one part to the next, will go hand in hand with a period of preparation and testing. If we want to enter into the fullness of what God has for us, we have to pass all these tests.

It helps to be prepared. Details of how to prepare yourself for each test will be made available in my ebooks.

The first of these e-books is available under the name
"Lose your Load" and covers he first part of the process, corresponding with the Outer Court of the Tabernacle.

Click here to get the Lose-Your-Load e-book.

Lose Your Load is not for sissies.

You will be confronted with the truth and you
will have to make decisions about your life.

If you are happy in your comfort zone, then this book is not for you. Once you start with this book, God will start with your life and he will not leave you alone until He is satisfied.

It is my belief that too many Christians have put up camp in the outer courts of their lives. Consequently, the Christian church has been deprived of much of its power.
You can make the difference! You'd better believe it.

The phases of God's process

This is Pieter de Waal with the sixth article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 6 - "The phases of the process"

God gives the promises and He also
brings them to fulfillment.

However, you must also play your part.

To make God's promises to you come true you must activate them by progressively entering deeper into Christ.

This walk into the promise is depicted by
a walk into the Tabernacle of Moses

Click here to learn more about the Tabernacle

The tabernacle (tent) on earth was just a shadow of the real tabernacle in heaven.
"The work they do as priests is really only a copy and a shadow of what is in heaven. It is the same as it was with Moses. When he was about to build the Sacred Tent, God told him, "Be sure to make everything according to the pattern you were shown on the mountain." [Heb 8:5]
We have to enter deep into this heavenly tabernacle to have our promise come to fulfillment.
Click here to learn more about the Tabernacle
Every step we take, is a step deeper into Jesus and we will get changed more into the likeness of His image.
"All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory..." [2Co 3:18]
It takes faith, patience and perseverance!
"We do not want you to become lazy, but to be like those who believe and are patient, and so receive what God has promised." [Heb 6:12]
"Keep on working with fear and trembling to complete your salvation, because God is always at work in you to make you willing and able to obey his own purpose." [Phi 2:12-13]
*********************
In my next session, I will tell you more about the various transitions that God must takes you through on the way to your destiny. Till then, God bless you.

Only in Christ

This is Pieter de Waal with the fifth article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

Last week I spoke about spiritual growth and mentioned that there are phases that we have to pass through if we are to progress towards our divine destinies. This week I am going
to tell you more about this process.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 5 - "Only in Christ"

Maybe you have heard people tell you that things
are not going well with you right now, because:

  • You are not a child of God!

  • You are living in sin!

  • You are not in God's will!

  • You don't have enough faith!

  • You are following a lie!

  • You are not speaking, proclaiming and pronouncing the right things!

  • You are not praying enough!

  • You are not working hard enough!

  • You are simply not called!

You will have many people preaching at you, each coming
at you from his or her own particular little bandwagon.

Well rest assured, most probably they are all,
totally and utterly wrong!

Each of these things above might or might not be an indication of your standing with God . . . depending on its own particular time or place or circumstances! It all depends on the specific phase of your spiritual life that you are in.

Remember . . .
all the promises of God must be
received in and through Christ.

“It is he who is the “Yes” to all of God’s promises. [2Co 1:20]

God’s promises can only be fulfilled in Christ.

“I am the vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me.” [John 15:5]

Anything that you trust the Lord for, whether it is a house or a car, a husband or a wife, a career or a ministry, everything must be received by means of the same process. God is always working in you on more than one promise or purpose simultaneously.
Some of these will only take a few days, others might even take decades.

To obtain success God's way, you must find out:

  • where you got stuck in God's process and

  • what you must do to proceed to the next step.

God's plan for your life will take you
through many distinct phases

These phases are clearly demarcated in the structure of the Tabernacle of Moses as defined by God Himself.

In my next session, I will tell you more about the tabernacle of Moses and how God uses it to guide you on the way to your destiny. Till then, God bless you.

Faith Heroes

This is Pieter de Waal with the fourth article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 4 - "Faith Heroes"

Last week I mentioned that a single wrong choice can have devastating results. We therefore need to understand God's process for our lives, but even more specifically His requirements for our lives at any specific time.

Before I continue. Just remember ...

You have it in you to be the next faith hero and
fulfill God's purposes for your life.

Because Abraham is the father of our faith, his life is an example that we can follow. We can see how God walked
with him from the first moment he spoke with him and
every step of the way until he finally brought him to
fulfillment of his destiny in life.

Studying the life of Abraham, you will notice how it went through distinct phases where God in each case had to deal with something else in his life.

By comparing these phases with the Tabernacle of Moses you will find that they match up perfectly.

This process is as real today as it was when God directed
the faith heroes of the bible into fulfilling their lives' purposes.

By this time you might already have seen how this is true for the life story of Esther. The story of Abraham's life however, allows us the opportunity to study these phases in much greater detail than the story of Esther does.

PS. If you haven't downloaded Esther yet,
now would be a good time.

PPS. The details of of Abraham's life is included as a bonus when you order "Lose Your Load".

In my next session, I will tell you more about God's process for taking you on the way to your destiny and how it can only be fulfilled in Christ. Till then, God bless you.

Preparation

This is Pieter de Waal with the third article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God desires you to prosper! Last week you saw that the blessings given to Abraham and his descendants are also meant for you ... because according to God's word the real descendants of Abraham are the people who have faith.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 3 - "Preparation"

God is a cool God and His plan for your life rocks!

Jesus said: "I have come in order that you might have life---
life in all its fullness."
(Joh 10:10)

To get this life in all its fullness, we must do it God's way.

Abraham is the father of our faith. Just like he had to pass through certain phases to fulfill his destiny, you and I must do the same. God is not in the instant business. We all know to that if you want the real thing, you have to be willing to wait a little longer. Whether it is instant milk, instant coffee or instant soup, it is not quite the same as the original product!

Instant food, though convenient, simply cannot compare with the quality that you would get if you would sit down in a gourmet restaurant and wait to be served. We also know that instant diets and instant riches are more likely to land you in trouble than to be of a any real life-long benefit.

There is much more to prosperity than
simply being rich and famous.

You have only to look at the celebrities who have struck it rich as teenagers to see how their lives are falling apart.

If your 5-year old insists on a 500cc road-bike, you are definitely not even going to consider his demands!. There is a very good reason why there is an age restriction on getting your driver's license and you, because you care for him, you are going to let him wait until he is ready.

If you as an earthly parent knows to prepare your children for responsibility, then your heavenly Father even more so. If you want lasting results, you must trust God to deliver.

Just as there are phases in our physical growth, there are also very distinct phases in our spiritual growth.

It is of utmost importance that we identify these phases correctly, not only in our own lives, but also in the lives of
our disciples (especially our children).

Click here to read more about God's process

A single wrong choice in this regard
can have devastating results.

Abraham, for example, mistakenly thought that God was taking too long to deliver on His promise, and in his impatience he created Ishmael. Till today, the descendants of Isaac and Ishmael are still at war.

In my own life I have made similar wrong choices. For example, while I was a student I was challenged with a situation that required me to have lots of faith. So I started to read about faith, study about faith, speak about faith and practice faith to the best of my ability.

In the process, I ended up generating more and more problems in my life and was generally going through hell. I not only ended up hurting myself and other people that I cared about, but inadvertently also ran the risk of being rebellious to God. Why? Because at that point in my life, God's goal for me was not faith, it was obedience!

The Inheritance of Abraham

This is Pieter de Waal with the second article of
my e-course: "God's Process for His Purposes".

As you continue this course, you will learn the
process that God will be using to take you, step by step, into the fulfilment of your life's purpose.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 2 - "The Inheritance of Abraham"

I know that you are an Internet user. I want to start off by telling you that the bible has much in common with the Internet. Both were written by multiple authors from all parts of life, both have universal appeal, both cross international barriers and both get translated into many languages.

They also have many differences. The biggest difference is that even with all that diversity, the bible still maintains a unified whole and a central theme, because of its Godly inspiration. And that central theme, believe it or not,
is prosperity . . . your prosperity!

When God called Abraham, He told him the following.

"I will bless you and make your name famous, so that you
will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, but I
will curse those who curse you. And through you I will
bless all the nations."
(Gen 12:2-3)

That's nice, isn't it?
Wouldn't you like to have the
same promise from God?

Actually you do!
This promise is repeated in the New
Testament to all who have faith.

"Consider the experience of Abraham; as the scripture says, "He believed God, and because of his faith God accepted him as righteous." You should realize, then, that the real descendants of Abraham are the people who have faith.
The scripture predicted that God would put the Gentiles right with himself through faith. And so the scripture announced the Good News to Abraham: "Through you God will bless all people." Abraham believed and was blessed; so all who believe are blessed as he was."

(Gal 3:6-9)

Click here to read more about God's plans for your life.

Abraham is called the spiritual
father of all who believe.

"And so the promise was based on faith, in order that the promise should be guaranteed as God's free gift to all of Abraham's descendants---not just to those who obey the Law, but also to those who believe as Abraham did.
For Abraham is the spiritual father of us all."
(Rom 4:16)

This inheritance of all the promises of Abraham
can only come to us through Christ.

"If you belong to Christ, then you are the descendants of Abraham and will receive what God has promised."
(Gal 3:29)

Jesus confirmed this in no uncertain terms.

"I have come in order that you might have life---
life in all its fullness."
(John 10:10)

God is a cool God and His plan for your life rocks!

Called to be a Warrior

This is Pieter de Waal with the first article of
the "God's Process for His Purposes" e-course.

God's Process for His Purposes
Part 1 - "You are called to be a warrior"

Do you have what it takes to
be the next faith hero?

Father God has great
plans for your life.

He designed you and gave you life with a specific purpose in mind. You are part of
God's strategic plan for the future.

The devil also has plans for your life.

He wants to steal and destroy
everything that God has for you.

Whose plans will prevail?


This course will give
you the inside edge.

We all know that Satan is no match for God.
So why then do we need to consider the devil at all?

Simply because God gave you a free will and the ability to choose for yourself. He is not going to override your
decisions, not even for your own good!

Your future lies in your own hands. God will work His ways in your life only when you give him permission to do so or when you pray to Him to intervene. He gave you authority over certain matters and you have the responsibility to exert it.

Like the gladiators of old, you must take up the armor of God and wage war on the powers of darkness.

Ephesians 6 tells us about this armor, but there is also much that it doesn't tell us. It tells us about the helmet of salvation, but it does not say exactly what the helmet is, how to put it on or how to wear it. The same is also true for the other pieces of the armor. More information on the armor of God can be found on the Gladiators for God website.

Click here to read more about the Armor of God

You will notice that I have also included various robes as part of God's armor. These are not mentioned in Ephesians 6, but are ultimately as much part of God's protection as any of the more well-known pieces of the armor.

There are many powerful, life-changing secrets related to these robes that will be revealed in my e-books. Don't miss out!

As you continue this course, you will not only learn more about the armor of God, but also about the principles of progress and promotion in God's army.

In my next session, I will tell you more about the
inheritance of Abraham and how it affects your destiny.
Till then, God bless you.

The glory of a Testament

Hi, folks. Pieter here again . . . with a message of grace.


"Life is a Song. Sing it!"
Sometimes, when we read the bible, we miss the real message. Take the following passage from Jeremiah for example. Nothing in this passage should give us any hope or any reason for happiness. Yet, when we dig deeper, the truth it reveals is profound!
"The officials of Judah and of Jerusalem, together with the palace officials, the priests, and all the leaders, made a covenant with me by walking between the two halves of a bull that they had cut in two. But they broke the covenant and did not keep its terms. So I will do to these people what they did to the bull. I will hand them over to their enemies, who want to kill them, and their corpses will be eaten by birds and wild animals. "(Jer 34:18-20)
This passage is clear about what happens when we break God's covenant. The law of God is without mercy!
However, this does not mean that God is without mercy. Even while the punishment for breaking this covenant was meted out, there was also another covenant active.
Enters Abraham, the father of faith....... God had set up the same covenant with him.
Abram brought the animals to God, cut them in half, and placed the halves opposite each other in two rows; but he did not cut up the birds. (Gen 15:10)
But God had a trick up his sleeve.... First he put Abraham to sleep.
When the sun was going down, Abram fell into a deep sleep. (Gen 15:12)
Then God took Abraham's place between the offerings.
When the sun had set and it was dark, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch suddenly appeared and passed between the pieces of the animals. Then and there the LORD made a covenant with Abram. (Gen 15:17-18)
So when the time came for punishment for the breaking of this covenant, God took it upon Himself.
For when we were still helpless, Christ died for the wicked at the time that God chose. (Rom 5:6)
Not only did He die on our behalf, he even left us a Testament!
For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. (Heb 9:16 AV)
And everyone through faith can inherit the promises to Abraham.
And so the promise was based on faith, in order that the promise should be guaranteed as God's free gift to all of Abraham's descendants---not just to those who obey the Law, but also to those who believe as Abraham did. For Abraham is the spiritual father of us all; (Rom 4:16)
Abraham, as father of faith, demonstrates the process, the route we must take to inherit.
And this process is all based on the interpretation of the Tabernacle of Moses as a type of Christ.

If you are going to follow this blog and continue the journey to your divine destiny by following God's process for His purpose in your life, you should believe in the process. It is real, and I will prove it to you.
Until next time....

Why is God's process important?

Hi, folks. Pieter here again . . . with some explanations behind God's Process.


"Life is a Song. Sing it!"

Let's say you are having financial problems. You approach various church leaders for help.

The first one says you must apply for a monthly food package at the local church representative. The second one says you must be in sin, otherwise God would not punish you like that.
The third one says you must just have faith and believe and your problems will dissolve.
The fourth one says you are lazy and you must work harder.
The fifth one says you must have patience.
Number six prays for a miracle.
Number seven sends you to a prophet.
Number eight says you must stop bothering all the church leaders with your problems.

Who is right!?
Will the same answer be correct for each person knocking on their doors?

The fact is this:
The correct response would depend on the phase in God's Process that you are in.
With other words. Where is God with you now and where is He going with you?
What is the lesson that you need to learn now, at this moment of time?

Maybe God is teaching you righteousness.
Maybe God is teaching you faith.
Maybe God is teaching you to trust in Him alone.
Maybe God is teaching you obedience.
Maybe God is teaching you humility.
Identifying the correct phase in God's process with your life will indicate the correct action that you should take.

Knowing God's process can save you lots of blood, sweat and tears.
If you are going to follow this blog and continue the journey to your divine destiny by following God's process for His purpose in your life, you should believe in the process. It is real, and I will prove it to you.
Until next time....Pieter de Waal

God's Speed

Hi, folks. Pieter here again . . . Have you ever had anyone wishing you Godspeed? "Life is a Song. Sing it!"

Sometimes, in your journey to your destiny, following God's process for His purpose in your life, you will find that things will tend to go on forever and ever and ever.

You just can't hurry God! You know it is coming. You know God is on your side, but by the time you actually receive what you were waiting for, it seems to have lost some of its flavour.

Take Abraham for example. He knew his descandants would come, but as time went by, doubt crept in. Finally he took matters into his own hands; and boy did he mess up!

Joseph knew he would become king. He had many years in jail to look forward to it. Now that was not quite part of his time planning!

Is this a complain session? Am I trying to scare you or something? Why am I going on about God being so slow?

Before I answer. We have to remember that using God's methods and his timeframes, you will end up doing more in a day than you would have done in twenty years using your own power.

No actually I have a message. The point I want to make is this. Just suppose you had your ladder of life leaning on the wrong wall? And you climbed this ladder, and you did your share of waiting ... and you finally reached the top. And all that came of all that effort, was an empty nothingness or a foul wind?

Have you plugged into God's process? Are you on the right track? Is your ladder of life leaning on the right wall? Will your waiting and working reap fruit?

God's timing is always sure, often slow, but never late!

If you are going to follow this blog and continue the journey to your divine destiny by following God's process for His purpose in your life, you must start at the very beginning. And starting at the beginning means starting with God. His process will work and He will work His process.

Nothing else will be good enough.

Until next time....

"Justice"

Hi, folks. Pieter here again . . . on a more serious note.

"Life is a Song. Sing it!"

Sometimes, in your journey to your destiny, following God's process for His purpose in your life, suddenly, and without warning, all hell will break loose!

Welcome to the real world.

What should your reaction be? Simply, rejoice!

Why? Because somehow, the devil, the slanderer, the opposer, the enemy, the accuser... found out that God is at the point of giving you an unexpected blessing. His purpose in life is to steal and destroy. Nothing freaks him out more than God's children getting blessed.

The blessing is coming, so don't look at the smokescreen. Don't be sidetracked.

I can't tell you how many times in my life I have had people making demands on my money. Especially when my cash flow is, well, shall I say, looking less than rosy. And my reaction is always to get my shackles up. I want to fight it with everything I have. Sometimes the demands might be fair, sometimes bogus. It doesn't matter.

Somehow, God's promises that revenge belongs to Him, does not want to drop from my mind to my heart. Ever had this problem? Not you! Yeah right.

Yet when I give in to God, and do the seemingly idiotic thing to let go of my plans for "justice," invariably, God's blessing for my life will be released.

Only last week I had to give in, after "battling" for more than six months with a contractor that did damage to my property and then demanded that I pay for the repairs. They then resorted to threats. Just when I felt least like giving in, God urged me to pay them. Two days later, I received a deposit in my account, more than twenty times the amount I had problems releasing.
I had been waiting for this money for over a year and actually gave up on receiving it.

God is good. And His methods does not have to make sense. Only obey.

If you are going to follow this blog and continue the journey to your divine destiny by following God's process for His purpose in your life, you will be much better off if you have a smile on your face and a song in your heart. This journey is not for sissies.

Until next time....

Life is a Song

Hi, folks. Pieter here again... with a post today that can change your life.

People don't always know what to respond when they ask me how I am and I give them my favorite response.
"Life is a Song. Sing it!"

Many would answer, "It is not going well with my life. I don't feel like singing."
Maybe your response would have been similar. You would be missing the point.
What I am saying is this: Life might not be giving you a choice of words in the Song of Life, but you can choose your own tune. Some people are always singing sad songs, irrespective of the words.

You cannot always change the circumstances of your life, but you can choose your attitudes. Solomon also knew this truth. He wrote:

"All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil by anxious thoughts and forebodings, but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast regardless of circumstances. (Prov 15:15 Ampl)

I also enjoy the way it is stated in The Message, "A miserable heart means a miserable life; a cheerful heart fills the day with song."

Does this mean that I am one of those people for whom happiness and joy comes naturally?
Actually not. I am a very serious person of nature. Just like you, I have to constantly remind myself to make an active choice to respond positively to negative circumstances.

It is only when you have the joy and peace of God in your heart that He can give you the strength and courage to stand up under your circumstances and do something about it.

If you are going to follow this blog and continue the journey to your divine destiny by following God's process for His purpose in your life, you will be much better off if you have a smile on your face and a song in your heart. This journey is not for sissies.

Until next time....

To believe is a choice

Hi, folks. Pieter here again... with a post today that is all about faith.

I heard on the Radio today how agnosticism and atheism were being discussed. By definition, both are doubters of religion, but for different reasons.


Atheists simply don't believe in the existence of God.
Agnostics are also atheists. Atheism and agnosticism pretend to be about unbelief, but in actual fact there is no such thing. They simply believe strongly in the opposite. They believe that everything that the Bible says are lies. They believe that everyone that claims to have a relationship with God are liars. They believe in the power of their own minds. They believe that thought is merely a chemical process.

They say that only those things that can be perceived with the senses and understood by the mind can be true and that it is therefore not possible for man to have a relationship with God.

Agnosticism has its roots in the early Greek philosophies and has a widespread effect on modern science and scientists who disbelief any thing that cannot be tested with the senses and only believe what can be felt an seen. We see it in the current belief in evolution that is pervading the sciences. These people actually believe in the ability of matter to create life!

Unless you believe in the word of God as your ultimate guide, you will not be able to obtain the destiny that god has for you. Unless you have a personal relationship with a Divine Creator, you will be an aimless drifter whose life will serve no purpose.

Yesterday morning when I got up, I knew that I faced a load of obstacles in my divine destination that I couldn't tackle alone. So I called to God in my prayers to step in. I then opened my bible to continue my daily reading and started with Isaiah 59:1 which stated, "Surely the Lord's power is enough to save you. He can hear you when you ask Him for help."

Need I say more.

Until next time....

Your destiny

God's process for His purposes has four distinct phases. Each of us has to go through the same stages if we are to make it successfully to the fulfillment of our destiny.

But before we get to the stages... You have a divine destiny. You should know that. We often hear people say things like: "This is the role I was born to play" or "I was born for this job." Deep inside, they know that they have a destiny. Whether they are correct in what they are saying is a different story, but at least they have part of the truth.

Whenever we find an appliance not functioning correctly, we consult the owner's manual. Only the designer or creator really knows the correct way of using it. Yet we fail to consult our Creator when our lives are failing.

Yes, God has a plan for your life. And His plans are bigger than your dreams! When you plug in to the source of life, you will start to function in a way that will astound you.

N!S: The most debilitating disease.


Ever heard of N!S? Probably not. Yet you know it. You have had it yourself. You might even have it now. And you will know others that have it - or had it.So what is it then? And what does it have to do with the 3rd Cord?

Let me put it to you this way. N!S is a tongue-in-cheek way of referring to what the Bible calls the fruits of the flesh.

You can read more about it at http://www.squidoo.com/nisz/.

So what does it have to do with the 3rd Cord then?

I will give it to you straight. If you have N!S, you have closed yourself from the work of God in your life. The first step to fulfilling your purpose in life is to get rid of your baggage. Lose your load!

Nisz might feel nice to you, but do not be deceived by its seeming innocence. In this regard it has much in common with drugs. Short term gain is exchanged for long term loss.

If you are interested in knowing more about God's process for His purposes, take a look at N!S and see if just maybe there is something of yourself.

Till next time.
