Beloved friend, our Father, God of heaven and the earth is disposed to deliver to you whatever you find in His word. His word, when found and believed, gives unequivocal guarantee of joy unspeakable with abundance of grace, power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory, favour, blessing, and peace that surpasses all human understanding.

 

It is written in the book of Isaiah 55:10-11, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

 

When you search deep to find His word that communicates your circumstance, eat, drink and sleep it, for it will never ever return void to you but bound to accomplish your desires. His word is prophetic and as you prophesy His word over your situation, you are bound to be revived and brought back to life by the Spirit of God.

 

There was a city, just like many lives today, full of dry bones where lives meant nothing. People who reside there are relegated to abject poverty, acute limitation and abysmal stagnation. This city is called Lo Debar, a place of nonentity, valley state, demoted to nothingness and full of dry bones. The only thing that can possibly change the fate of the city and its residence is the prophetic word of God. It is written in the book of Ezekiel 37:1-14, “The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ So I answered, ‘O LORD GOD, You know.’ Again He said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the LORD GOD to these bones: ‘Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.’ So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the LORD GOD: ’Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.’ So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ ‘Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD GOD: ‘Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. ’Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,‘ says the LORD.

 

My friend, the above vision given to Ezekiel is how many lives are portrayed today, dry bones in the valley. In this valley, what you find is spirit of death, hell, hopelessness, helplessness, corruption, covetousness, frustration, failure, defeat, demotion, divorce, singleness, disappointment, barrenness, unemployment, murder, kidnapping, conspiracy, disrespect, fear, lies, et cetera. The word of God was prophesied by Ezekiel over these dry bones (the circumstances) and they began to move and stood on their feet as exceedingly great army. You too can use the prophetic word of God to effect change in your life. As the anointing of God is flowing all over me, I take this opportunity to prophesy into your life in the name of Jesus.

 

You, whose life is hopeless, I prophesy the word of God into your life to revive and bring you out from your Lo Debar in the name of Jesus.

 

I prophesy that all your lost glory shall be returned back to you in the name of Jesus.

 

I prophesy that you will possess back your possessions in the name of Jesus.

 

I prophesy that absence of your documentation that has rendered you a nonentity in this country shall change to your favour in the name of Jesus.

 

I prophesy that any sickness or disease that has defied medical therapy shall come to an end in the name of Jesus.

 

I prophesy that every altar of barrenness in your life is broken and set you into the state of fruitfulness in the name of Jesus.

 

My friend, in conclusion, the word of God is prophetic. When adequately mixed with the Spirit of God, any circumstances without hope and purpose, are filled with life, purpose and hope. If you have any comment and or contribution, please do not hesitate to contact us in the name of Jesus.

 

Apostle Alex Barango

 

 

My brethren, it is amazing to know that God gave a high regard to covenant of fruitfulness in all areas of your life. The first word of blessing God spoke over you was the covenant of fruitfulness in the book of Genesis 1:27-28, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” Every covenant child has a chip of fruitfulness implanted inside of him or her to overrule the spirit of barrenness.

 

God did not prevaricate in His intention towards your life right from the beginning of creation. He activated war against the spirit of barrenness of the body and of any other areas of your life by delivering to you the covenant of fruitfulness. His word is prophetic and does not change. He said in the book of Deuteronomy 7:14-15, “You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.” God is a Spirit, His word is prophetic, powerful and is cashable in any spiritual bank.

 

In other words, He is re-emphasising His word that there is no situation, circumstance or disease on earth that is potent enough to deny you, the true believer of the ministry of Jesus Christ the covenant of fruitfulness in all areas of your life.

 

When God finished His creative and well polished design of you, He actually acknowledged His good work in you as 'very good' in the book of Genesis 1:31, “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” During the designing process, God, your manufacturer, fused inside of you an automatic chip for fruitfulness, multiplication as well as power to replenish with ease. His agenda for you is not barrenness or unfruitfulness but fruitfulness, therefore, refuse and reject any contrary voices wanting you to settle for less in your life in the mighty name of Jesus. May God richly bless you.

ARTICLE 3.

WHY JESUS IS THE SUBSTITUTE FOR MY LIFE,

PART 1.

 

My friends, this is part 1 of the life changing article. Knowing why Jesus is the substitute for your life will enable you to obtain victory in every circumstance that confronts you. When He Crossed-over from life-to-death-and-back-on-to-life, ‘the Resurrection’, that is the substitute. Your ability to appreciate HIM will empower you to acquire unprecedented success over every situation that you face. This article is personalized to suit me, Apostle ALEX and I believe that you too can also appropriate it to suit your identity. JESUS IS THE SUBSTITUTE FOR MY LIFE. There are numerous reasons why Jesus is my substitute. He did what my father, mother, wife, children, brother, sister, relatives, friends, et cetera could not have done for me. Therefore, I am not ashamed to proclaim Jesus Christ on the housetop as the SUPER POWER of God for my salvation. I am not ashamed to teach Him, preach Him and declare Him. Freely I receive and freely I give. I am a proud born again soldier of Jesus Christ. Below are some of the points why He is my substitute! Praise God! Hallelujah.

 

1. JESUS WAS MADE A VICTIM THAT I MIGHT BE VICTORIOUS OVER THE ENEMY.

In the book of Isaiah 53:7, "He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth."

 

Again in the book of John 10:17-18, "Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father."

 

Furthermore, also in the book of I John 5:4, "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?" My friend, because of Him, I am victorious over my enemies.

 

2. JESUS WAS MADE TO BE SIN FOR ME THAT I MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM.

In the book of 2 Corinthians 5:21, "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

 

Furthermore, in the book of I Corinthians 15:34, "Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame." I am proud of my LORD Jesus Christ who took my sins away for me to qualify as the righteousness of God in Him. Praise God! Hallelujah.

 

3. JESUS WAS REJECTED THAT I MIGHT BE FULLY ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED.

In the book of Isaiah 53:3, "He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him."

 

Furthermore, in the book of Ephesians 1:6, "To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved." He was rejected, pained and struck with sickness for me to be accepted into the family fold. Praise God, Hallelujah

 

4. JESUS CARRIED MY DISEASES THAT I MIGHT BE HEALED BY HIS STRIPES.

In the book of Matthew 8:16-17, "When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."

 

Furthermore, in the book of I Peter 2:24, "Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed." My friends, Jesus carried all my diseases and sicknesses and gave me health free life. I thank You my LORD and personal Saviour Jesus Christ.

 

5. JESUS WAS FORSAKEN BY GOD THE FATHER IN ORDER TO ADOPT ME AS A CHILD OF GOD NEVER TO BE FORSAKEN.

 

In the book of Matthew 27:46, "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"

 

In the book of Hebrews 13:5, "Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you." My friends, because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, I become an adopted child of God full of the glory and power of the Kingdom. Praise God, hallelujah.

 

6. JESUS ALSO DIED FOR ME SO THAT I MIGHT RECEIVE THE INHERITANCE OF GOD AS A CHILD OF GOD.

 

In the book of Hebrews 9:16-17, "For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives."

 

Furthermore, in the book of Romans 8:17, "And if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together."

 

Again, in the book of Galatians 3:29, "And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." Because of the finished work of Jesus, I am qualified to receive the inheritance of God and also be glorified together with Him in the kingdom of God.

Freely I receive and freely I give. I am proud to be a born again soldier of Jesus Christ. Below are some points to take note of. Praise God! Hallelujah.

 

1. JESUS WAS MADE POOR THAT I THROUGH HIS POVERTY MIGHT BE MADE RICH.

My friend the Bible says in the book of 2 Corinthians 8:9,"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich."

 

Furthermore, in the book of Philippians 2:6-7, "Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men." Therefore, because of Jesus I am rich and can never be poor in the name of Jesus.

 

2. JESUS MADE HIMSELF A CURSE FOR ME THAT I MIGHT BE REDEEMED FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW AND RECEIVE THE BLESSINGS OF GOD MY HEAVENLY FATHER.

My friend the Bible says in the book of Galatians 3:13-14, "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

 

Also, in the book of Ephesians 1:3, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ." My friends, because of Jesus, I am free from all curses and walloping in spiritual blessings in the name of Jesus.

 

3. JESUS DIED THAT I MIGHT BE BORN OF THE SEED OF GOD, BECOME A CHILD OF GOD, AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

My friend the Bible says in the book of Romans 5:17, "For if by one man's offence death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ”

 

Also, in I Peter 1:23, "Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever."

Furthermore, in I John 5:13, "These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God." My friends, therefore, because of Jesus, I am born of incorruptible seed and have eternal life.

 

4. JESUS TOOK MY SINS UPON HIMSELF THAT I MIGHT BE SAVED FROM BOTH SIN AND THE POWER OF SIN.

My friend, the Bible says in the book of Romans 5:8, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

 

The Bible also confirmed, in Matthew 1:21, "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins."

 

Furthermore, in Romans 6:6, "Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin." My friends, therefore, because of Jesus, I have power and authority over the power of sin and all its associates.

 

5. JESUS SUFFERED SHAME THAT I MIGHT BE FREE FROM SHAME, DISGRACE AND HUMILIATION.

Beloved, the Bible says in the book of Isaiah 50:6, "I gave My back to those who struck Me, and My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard; I did not hide My face from shame and spitting."

 

Furthermore, in Romans 10:11, "For the scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." My friends, therefore, because of Jesus’ death, I have overcome the power of shame, disgrace and humiliation in the name of Jesus.

When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.

Furthermore, in Romans 4:25, the Bible says, "Who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification."

 

And in the book of I Thessalonians 1:10, the Bible highlighted, "And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come." My friends, He suffered the wrath for me so that I might be justified in life in the name of Jesus.

 

3. JESUS WAS BETRAYED THAT I MIGHT HAVE A FAITHFUL WITNESS BEFORE GOD THE FATHER.

 

My friend, the Bible says in the book of Mark 14:41, "Then He came the third time and said to them, Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough! The hour has come; behold, the Son of man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners."

 

Furthermore, in Revelation 1:5, the Bible says, "And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood."

 

And in the book of I John 2:1, "My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." My friends, because of the betrayal of Jesus, I now have a faithful witness in heaven before God the Father in the name of Jesus.

My friend, the Bible says in the book of Isaiah 53:12, "Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."

 

Furthermore, in the book of 1 Corinthians 1:2, "To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours."

My friend, the Bible says in the book ofIsaiah 53:3, "He is despised and rejected of men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him."

 

Again, in the book of 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."

 

Furthermore, I died with Him, in the book of Galatians 2:20, "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."

Furthermore, in the book of Isaiah 53:8, "He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken."

ARTICLE 7.

PRAYER FORMULAR THAT IS TESTED, TRUSTED

AND GUARANTEED

 

Friends, prayer is a two-way conversation with God. You speak to Him and you listen to what He wants you to do. In the natural, when a person wants someone's attention, that person would like to appear good for positive outcome. It is the same with God, it's not a do or die affairs but knowing the winning formula necessary to get your way through the door.

 

There are six proven and winning formulas you can apply to soothe and enter through the door of God's heart.

 

Firstly, whenever you want to pray, it is important that you begin your prayers with praise and worship to God the Most High, acknowledging all that He has done for you in the past. Glorifying His Majesty and accepting that you are the weaker partner in the prayer covenant. By so doing, you are sure to enter the palace of His heart as in Psalm 22:3.

 

Secondly, it is important that you hide nothing from Him Who knows all things. Immediately begin to confess all your sins, known and unknown, because everyday people do things that are not acceptable in heaven. As you are in the mode of confession, begin to forgive all those who had wronged you one way or the other, because without forgiveness your Heavenly Father will not answer your prayers. Read Matthew 6:14-15.

 

Thirdly, you are now ready to begin to ask God for your own personal need. By that I mean, the reasons for praying. At this juncture, ensure that you apply faith because without faith you cannot please God. Hebrews 11:6. There are various other scriptures you can recite for the purpose of your prayers such Scriptures as Philippians 4:19, 1 John 5:14-15, Luke 12:31, 2 Peter 1:3, etc.

 

Fourthly, my friends, it’s now your own turn for intercession. Very important that you pray for other people in similar or worse situations like you are. Most of the time, the Holy Spirit will deposit message in your mind, apply them. You must stand in the gap for people, whether they are better off, worse off, your enemies, unconverted friends and relatives that you know, your local church and the pastors, various missionaries on assignment, government and others alike, various charities, etc, Ezekiel 22:30. Your intercessory prayers must be focused and specific, for example pray for world peace, salvation of souls, pray for the youths and ask for God's wisdom to fall upon them, etc.

 

Fifthly, begin to thank God for answered prayers without doubting and then you can be rest assured that God will meet you at your point of needs. Mark 11:24.

Finally, the sixth point is more important than all of the above and that is to make quality time for God to respond back to you. Ability to listen very important. He may speak to you immediately or sometime later but it is important that you learn to listen to God as thoughts will begin to emerge from your mind as in Isaiah 55:2

PRAY TO GOD THE FATHER WITH BOLDNESS

 

My friends many born again believers are struggling and suffering because of the lies and deceit of the devil and his agents and as a result do not pray to God with boldness but fear and trembling. The devil and his agents have sown dangerous seeds of deception to the church that un-confessed sins in people's lives had prevented God from answering their prayers. That their prayers to God are bound to be disregarded, therefore, no need to pray. Friends, this statement is false and came from the pit of hell.

 

They also sowed corruptible seeds of deceit that people must go to God, to the throne of grace with fear and trembling. This statement is further from the truth and it is false. Do not believe it but go to God with boldness. In Hebrews 4:16, it did not say that you must go to God with fear and trembling, but come with boldness to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and to find grace to help in time of need. Fear is of the devil and must have no association to any child of God.

 

The devil and his agents also propagate their lies that because people do not know how to pray effectively, God the Father will not answer their prayers. Again, this statement is another big lie. In Romans 8:26, the Bible made provision for our weaknesses, therefore it cannot be counted against you, the Holy Spirit does the work and not you. It says, “Likewise the Holy Spirit also helps us in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Do not allow this lies to prevent you from praying to God.

 

The devil and his agents also propel false statement that because of our sin, we are condemned and therefore, no point praying to God anyway. This statement also came from the pit of hell, therefore shred it and put it in the bin. Romans 8:1, "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.” As long as you are working in the Spirit, your prayers will always be answered with positive response.

 

They also make people to believe that God will not hear their prayers because He may be attending to others, thus no point to trouble Him with prayers. My friends, this is nonesense. God is Omnipresent, He is everywhere, can answer all calls at the same time without fail. Psalm 139:7, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?

 

Friends , the above erroneous statements from the devil and his agents are lies, false and ploy to stop you from praying. Praying destroys and dismantles the kingdom of darkness and if the devil can manoeuvre to gain an advantage over you, he will continue to hold you in bondage. The blood of Jesus was shed for you so that you can boldly come to God to present your petition in prayers and receive answers. Whether you are an expert in praying or not, what matters is that your heart is clean and you go boldly to God and by the power of His shedded blood your prayers will be heard and answered.

 

God has declared His mercy on every believer because of the finished work of the cross and not by your works. Your sin is forgiven through the blood of Jesus, no more condemnation, it has been blotted out, wiped off completely.

 

Jesus is our High Priest and only through Him you can enter into the Holiest to meet with God. His redemptive plans open the doorway and gateway into the presence of God. By the power of redemption that He did, we can boldly enter the holiest without any obstruction. Hebrews 10:19-25

 

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these thingsshall be added to you .

 

GRACE is a place of unmerited favour, mercy, healing,deliverance and restoration through His Blood

ARTICLE 9.

SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND YOUR SUCCESS AND VICTORY SHALL FOLLOW.

 

My friends this is a brief article about seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. The Bible says in the book of Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Seeking after God, as Abraham did, initiates you into a new order, new fellowship, and new relationship with God. When you obey, observe and act in accordance with the word, "all other things are mysteriously made available to you with ease." It is an expression and activation of God's covenant. He does not break His covenant and the above is a covenant, when complied upon, all benefits are forthwith released.

 

Seeking God first actually means to trust Him with your life, and with all that you have. It also means to give to God not only when you are rich, happy or well off but also when you have little or nothing. It is an act of worshipping Him and this manner of sacrifice always opens up the gates and doors into God's heart to release miracles toward you. Please learn to give to God and see for yourself how blossoming your life will look like.

 

When you learn to seek God first before anything else, 3 clear things will undoubtedly happen to you:

 

Your biggest storms in life will be resolved whether the devil likes it or not. Human life is full of storms and some are unavoidable. Some are self made sin and guilt, which if not sorted out may lead to hell for eternity. When we begin to seek God first, we begin to hear correctly what God is saying in His word concerning our storms. You will receive peace of mind that nothing can destroy. God's peace to those who seek Him first is not subject to any circumstances but upon the eternal worth of what Christ did on the cross for us.

 

It is a permanent peace that does not disappear when storms of life arrive. In Matthew 6:19-20, the LORD promised that the kind of peace associated with those closer to God, both spiritual and physical armed robbers cannot steal them and moth and rust cannot also destroy them. In John 10:10b, His ways give life more abundantly to anyone who seek after Him first.

 

BENEFITS

 

Seeking God first brings assurance of hope and future in this rough and unpredictable world system. The present world has no guarantee for life and things are getting tougher and rougher. But you can take God's promises to the bank and be certain to cash your cheques. In Jeremiah 29:11, for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. There is a guaranteed hope for the future, unfailing love of God in Christ.

 

To seek first the kingdom of God before anything else gives you power to overcome all obstacles to your breakthrough and victory in life. There is full assurance that you will never lose out.

MAKE A VOW TODAY AND PUT GOD TO TEST

 

My friend, God usually speaks to us in many different ways, however, when the filthiness of this world blocks the ears, it is often very difficult to hear and understand. Vowing is one of the many ways God wants you to test Him and see whether He will not deliver you from your problems.

 

Making a VOW to God and keeping up with it will open up the windows of heaven without dispute.... Those who need immediate and urgent answers from God can visit His palace by faith and make vows like Jacob did in Gen 28:20. Jacob knew what he wanted and that was to return back to his father's house peacefully and a rich man. In that light, he entered into a covenant of peace and success with God, saying "if God will be with him, and keep him in his way, all that God shall give him, that he will surely give the tenth unto God. Jacob became a multi-millionaire and kept his part of the vow. "

 

In the book of Psalm 50:14-15. " Offer to God thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me." From these scriptures, God's promise to you is, if you are experiencing any kind of difficulty, problem, trouble, or for future expectations, make a VOW and PAY and He will deliver you. Whenever you make a VOW in accordance with the Word of God and keep up with your commitment, you are actually preparing for your brighter tomorrow before you arrive there.

 

There is no doubt about it, VOWING is a way of appreciating God in advance for receiving His blessings; it is the declaration to satanic roadblocks that you are under the Umbrella and Protection of God's Power. It is also to trigger the release of God's Miracle Working Authority over your life in advance.

 

EVERYONE CAN VOW.... don't be dissuaded about how you are actually going to pay your vow. Just step back and take the first step in accordance with His Word. My friend, just obey God, believe His Word and take a step of faith and make a VOW today. He promised to help you fulfill your vow.

Ecclesiastes 5:4, I pray, may God empower you to pay your vow.... and you will begin to see an escape route from your trouble.

 

If you have any questions or you need prayers, do not hesitate to contact us in writing.

OVERCOME ALL OBSTACLES.

 

My friends this article is to help and strengthen your weakened faith so that you can see beyond the illusions of the devil. When you feel as though your life is collapsing before you and that you need divine intervention;;;;

 

You may also feel as though whenever you are going for gold, something unexplainably drags you back;;;;;

 

You you may feel as though all efforts put into worthwhile ventures always proved abortive;;;;;;;

 

You may also feel that some people receive favour effortlessly from God and man but in your own case, you have to put more than necessary hard work to receive very little or nothing;;;;;;

In the book of 1 John 4:4, the Bible says, "you are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world."

A.

 

If you are not a born again make a speedy decision to receive salvation today, Romans 10:9-10.

OBEYING GOD IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE

 

My friends take hold of good instructions for they are the keys to your survival. Whether it is from God or from your parents, do not shun goodly counsel. They are graceful ornaments on your head and chains about your neck. Only fools stupidly despise good counsel and thus lack the discipline that follows from it. Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice and to heed than the fat of rams.

 

God is inviting you today; turn at My reproof; surely I will pour out my Spirit on you; I will make My words known to you. Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out My hand and no one regarded, because you disdained all My counsel, and would have none of My reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call on Me, but I will not answer; they will seek Me diligently, but they will not find Me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, they would have none of My counsel and despised all My reproof; therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of the fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to Me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. (Proverbs 1:23-33, NKJV)

 

Friends, God speaks to people in many different ways. However, when He speaks and people choose not to listen to divine communication, thinking that they know better than God, that they are brilliant, macho and smart, well then like in the days of Noah and the ark, those rascals ate the fruits of disobedience.

 

Consequences for those who disobey the call of God are, when they cry unto Him in evil time and in the days of famine, He will ignore their cry. How terrible would it be at the time of need for God to laugh at you or mock at your disaster? It will be devastating and self destroying.

 

Nevertheless, our God is merciful, gracious, forgiving Father and wants you to come close to Him now. Friends, obeying the voice of the LORD God is better than sacrifice and to heed than the fat of rams. (1 Samuel 15:22, NKJV. ).

 

The voice of God can come in many different ways: it can come through the servant of God, the Word, dreams, visions, et cetera, just obey and be saved.

SINS OF OUR FATHERS HAVE CAUGHT UP

WITH US

 

Our fathers sinned and are no more, but we bear their iniquities. Today, servants rule over many of us and there is no one to deliver us from their hand. We slave to get our breads at the risk of our lives, because of the sword in the wilderness of the world. Many of us, our skins are as hot as an oven and some as hardened as a rock, because of the fever of famine.

 

The stronger hands ravished our women in Zion, the maidens in the cities of Judah.

 

Many of our Princes were hung up by their hands, and elders no longer respected. Our young men ground at the millstones, our boys staggered under loads of wood.

 

In many of the community centres and gates, our elders have ceased gathering and the young men play musics that do not make sense but play anyway to occupy their time.. The joy of our heart has ceased, our dance has turned into mourning. The crown has fallen from our head. Woe to us, for we have sinned! Because of this our heart faint; because of these things our eyes grow dim. Lamentations 5:7-17.

 

Beloved, because of the sins committed by our ancestors, God's purpose or His good intention for us has been turned into struggles, shame, sickness, poverty, disgrace, etc. We work very hard but achieve very little in reward.

 

Many of our young men and ladies in colleges and universities now only get by through cults, kidnapping, armed robbery and prostitutions. In all of the above , there is a solution, JESUS. Turn and scream loud to God! My Father in heaven help me today and you will be restore back to your original status in the name of Jesus.

10 KEYS TO ANSWERED PRAYER

 

Praying is a powerful ministry and when forcefully applied, it brings profound results. We are a praying ministries and cannot survive in this fierce and antogonistic world without prayer. Unless you are prepared for the discipline of effectual and fervent prayer lifestyle the enemy will have a step ahead of you. Below are ten key proven strategies that can bring turnaround in your life. May God bless you and family.

 

Pray only to the Creator of heaven and earth, God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit not to the creation as highlighted in 1 Corinthians 8:4-6.

 

Learn to forgive others who may have wronged you so that you do not consciously and unconsciously block answers from God as in Matthew 6:14-15.

 

Only seek God's will and not your own will and things will begin to fall in place as Jesus did in Luke 22:42.

 

Read your Bible thoroughly and find out areas that are relevant to your issues and use the word of those verses to pray as in 2 Timothy 2:15.

 

Confess and repent from your sins so that you can be focus and not carry any baggage as in 1 John 1:9 and Isaiah 59:1-2 .

 

You must have faith in yourself and God so that nothing can cause you to waiver as noted in Hebrews 11:6.

 

You must persevere and be persistent in your effort and prayer life. Giving up is not an option as emphasized in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

 

You must totally surrender to God and let Him have His own way because His thoughts are not your thoughts and your ways are not His ways as in Isaiah 55:8-9.

 

Learn to praise God all the time, appreciating what He has done and what He will do as 1 Thessolonians 5:18.

 

Learn to pray in the Spirit all the time and allow the Holy Spirit to work for you as in 1 Cointhians 14:14-15.

WE ALL NEED THE INTERCESSORY MINISTRY.

 

The intercessory is a unique ministry that is characterised with discipline and compassion for those involved in this area of ministration. The ability to sacrifice time and self to listen, empathise and pray with precision and effectiveness for others to God for solution. The LORD said, "I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found no one." Ezekiel 22:30.

 

My friend, some of us have dedicated and availed our lives 24/7 to stand in the gap before God for those who are spiritually injured. It does not matter the distance, whether you worship with us or in any other geographical locations, the common concern for an intercessor is to intercede on your behalf in fulfillment to the Word of God. Friend, it is not by might nor by power but by the Spirit of God for you to obtain solution to your problems. Come or contact us today to receive your healing, deliverance and restoration.

 

The Spirit of God is upon us because we have been anointed by God to preach the gospel to the poor, sent to heal the brokenhearted and set captives free. If you are in any way discouraged, struggling with fear, undergoing emotional pain from your past experiences, relationships breakdown, confused and or other unresolved spiritual matters, then get connected. Intercession is God's divine order that generates miracles. My friend, a divine order is a prerequisite for breakthroughs. Through divine order in the book of Luke 9:14, our LORD Jesus Christ feed 5000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish. He asked His disciples to sit the people down in groups of fifty in the mixed of the chaos He interceded for their hunger.

 

We as intercessors can say to you that in your state of brokenness, when you meet with the Master Jesus Christ in faith, He will make you whole once again. Get in touch and let us agree together in one accord in prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. "Call upon Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know, Jeremiah 33:3." Amen.

 

Right now I decree to you by the power in the name of Jesus Christ, receive your healing, deliverance and restoration.

HIS BLOOD IS THE RIVER OF GRACE IN

ABUNDANCE

 

My friends from experience I know that Jesus is the epitome of love like God the Father, but that love in itself cannot save anyone except and unless you seriously seek for it. He gave Himself for the world yet the world did not recognise and receive Him. Jesus is love leading to grace and mercy.

 

I guarantee you that when you decide to jump into the river of grace full of the abundance of love, mercy and grace, you are sure to drop off the old garment of pain, sadness and confusion and come out with a new garment full of love, peace, joy, righteousness, etc.... The RIVER full of GRACE is HIS BLOOD.

 

In the book of Ephesians 2:4-5, “but God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us; even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).” The above scriptures noted 3 wonderful keys. It expressed the keys of Love, mercy and grace. God is love, mercy and grace and the three work together because out of His love flows mercy and out of mercy comes grace.

 

MERCY can be said to be, even though you and I deserve punishment for our sins, but God will not give us what we deserve in sin, and GRACE on the other hand can be said to be, God giving you and I, what we do not merit. We actually deserve punishments for our sins but in replacement of our actions, God pardoned us. Obviously, the last thing we would have merited based on the magnitude of our sins, is not salvation but in grace God saved us.

 

Grace is what God does for us, for which nobody can do for us and what we cannot do for ourselves or merit. Grace is a unique and perfect work of God which can never ever be improved upon. God’s grace is perfection, even God Himself cannot improve on it which He demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ on the cross. He said my grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness in 2 Corinthians 12:9.

 

The love of God made the cross of Jesus Christ possible, but His holiness made it necessary for us to be saved and enjoy our lives. Grace flows out of God’s unfailing love and fully satisfies His holiness. Grace does not minimise the effect of our sin but it is for the possibility for God to accept us, having been deeply dead into sin...Like the prodigal son, the father welcomed him with open hand in Luke 15:11-32.

 

In the book of Ephesians 1:7, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. The riches of His grace provide the sacrifice for our sins.”

 

In the book of Ephesians 2:13, “but now in Christ Jesus you and I who once were far off have been made near by the blood of Christ.” The sacrifice is Jesus Christ and the medicine is His Blood. God gave His only begotten Son to atone for our sins; He did this because the Blood of Jesus Christ is the only key that has the capacity to pay for our debt.

 

In John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” There is no other way for salvation and salvation would never have been possible without Jesus Christ and the Blood and that is why God made Him responsible for our sins. Our sins, guilts and punishments were placed upon Jesus Christ. His Blood is the ultimate sacrifice and His atoned death on the cross became our substitute.

 

Grace alone brings hope for us and because salvation is by the free grace of God in Jesus Christ, there is hope for you. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God as noted in the book of Romans 3:23-24, but only His Grace is able to deliver us from sin. This is the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

In the book of Ephesians 2:8-9, “for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Grace comes to us through faith. You are not saved by faith but through faith. It is the channel by which the saving grace of God comes to you. The channel of faith answers to the light of the gospel‘s truth that God brings to our hearts and minds, as John 8:32 “and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

 

God is inviting you to come to Him today for your salvation. He solidified this invitation by giving His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to pay the price of your sins. His grace has provided all the means for you to be saved, delivered, healed and restored. I guarantee you that when you decide to get into the river of grace full of His abundant love, mercy and grace, you are sure to drop off the old garments and come out with new garments.

UNDERSTANDING WHAT IS YOUR DESTINY

ON THE EARTH

 

My friends, this is a brief article about understanding your destiny on earth. Everything on earth created by God has a destiny. Whether it is a human being, the sun, moon, stars, earth, water sea, air, wind, et cetera, they all have a purpose to fulfil. The dictionary describes destiny as future marked out for a person or for a thing. It also defines destiny as the power that predetermines the course of events. The manufacturer of a product is the owner of the manual and knows how he predetermines its functions. That manufacturer, the creator in human live in this case is God the supreme.

 

Every human being has a destiny and it is because of that destiny that he or she was born into the earth to fulfil that assignment. As in Jeremiah 1:5, you have been sanctified and ordained by God for a purpose. Therefore, your destiny is the purpose of God for your life. It is your biography, the account written by God of you in His book of life before you were born to this earth. Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet to the nations" You are set apart and appointed for a specific duty or assignment to be carried out by you and no one else.

 

Jesus came and fulfilled His destiny. In one of the occasions, He revealed that one of His purposes as written in Matthew 20:28, was to serve and not to be served and also to give His life as ransom for many." Also, written in the book of "1 John 3:8, He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil."

 

Every person born into this world has two destinies. One destiny is of the world, living as the system of the world would want you to live as an unbeliever. The second is the heavenly destiny and that comes by choice. From the day you make a decision to become a born again, a new destiny is birthed, completely different from that of the world, as a believer.

 

Noting from the above, your destiny is the original plan of God for you, His master plan before He created you as man or woman, what He has in mind for you as in Jeremiah 29:11 to give you a future and a hope. However, failure to understand your destiny in life can cause you to take a wrong path. My friends, destiny is God's original programme for you and it is expected of you to seriously search, identify and activate your destiny.

 

There are evil powers congregating, working overtime looking to derail, divert, destroy, reprogram, repackage and fragment people’s destiny. Do not live your life ignorant, ask, seek, search, and find out what is your destiny on this earth. One of the reasons the Holy Spirit came was to teach you and bring to your remembrance all things about yourself in John 14:26. Ask the Holy Spirit to tell you how to locate your destiny. Also, read Deuteronomy 29:29 and pray with it and God will reveal to you all about yourself.

 

To seek first the kingdom of God before anything else gives you power to overcome all obstacles to your breakthrough and victory in life. Therefore, there is full assurance that you will never lose out. If you have any questions, prayers or wish to give to God through our ministries, please do not hesitate to contact us and or forward your gift offerings to us below.

THE 7 SYMBOLS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

There are seven symbols by which the Holy Spirit can be identified. As a child of God, you may be wondering how can I know when the Holy Spirit appears before me. He may come to you in real person, in the dream or in other ways to bring message to you. Through the gift of discernment you should be able to identify His presence and obtain the spiritual revelation He came to deliver to you. What are the symbols that you should watchout for:

 

In the book of Matthew 3:16, then Jesus, when He had been baptised, came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) descending like a dove and alighting upon Him (Jesus Christ). So one of His symbols is the "DOVE". Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of Ephesians 1:13, the Bible says, "In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise". So another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "SEAL" . Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of Acts 2:2, "and suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. " So another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "WIND". Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of 1 Samuel 16:13, "then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the LORD (Holy Spirit) came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah." So another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "OIL". Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of Isaiah 44:3, "for I will pour water on Him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring." Also, in the book of John 7:37-38, ....If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." So from both books above, another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "WATER". Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of Acts 2:3-4, "then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." So another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "FIRE." Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

In the book of 1 Kings 19:11-12, "Then He said, Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD. And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice." So another symbol of the Holy Spirit is "STILL SMALL VOICE". Always WATCHOUT FOR THIS SIGN, may be in real live or in your dream!

 

Friends, always lookout for these symbols when going through the storms of life and or in your dream! The comforter may have some life changing messages for you. If this brief teaching has helped you and you wish to sow into this ministry, then please forward your gift offering to:

WHAT'S THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO YOU

 

The Holy Spirit is the Power and Spirit of God here on earth, He is the Chief Executive and the third member of the threefold Godhead. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is a person with numerous activities to perform in your life if you will only give Him the chance. Let us look at some of the works of the Holy Spirit and how He can help you survive in the storms of life.

 

In the book of 1 Thessalonians 1:6, the Bible says, "and you became followers of us and of the LORD, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit." If there is lack of joy in your life, now fall on your knees immediately and begin to ask the Holy Spirit to enable joy in your life. That is one of His duties to make you joyful and happy. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Romans 14:17, the Bible says, "for the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." If your life is devoid of righteousness, peace and joy, then it is time to call upon the Holy Spirit to enable these keys in your life to be activated right now in the name of Jesus. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Romans 5:5, the Bible says, "now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." Some of us struggle to love ourselves and even love our neighbours; ask the Holy Spirit today to pour out the love of God into your heart and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Romans 15:13, the Bible says, "now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." One of the works of the Spirit of God is to enable you to overflow with hope, now get on your knees and ask Him to do that in your life. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Galatians 5:22-23, the Bible says, "but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, against such there is no law." The entire world is fallen apart because people are looking on the works of the flesh and not the fruit of the Spirit. If you are desperate for change, then ask the Holy Spirit to enable you with the fruit of the Spirit and you will not be disappointed. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Matthew 12:28, the Bible says, "but if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the Kingdom of God has come upon you." When you allow the Holy Spirit to resident in you, no demon power can trouble you because the Holy Spirit will enable you to drive out demons and their associates around you. The Holy Ghost is a demon-buster, get connected. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Mark 13:11, the Bible says, "but when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit." When you allow the Holy Spirit to settle in your life, He will help you and put words into your mouth when you are in a tight corner. By that I mean, He will enable you to speak the way God would like you to speak rather than tell lies. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of John 14:26, the Bible says, "but the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." He is your comforter sent to teach you all things about God and also to remind you of things you may have forgotten. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of John 3:5-8, the Bible says, "...most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'you must be born again'. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." It is impossible to become born again without the Holy Spirit, for it is He who enables you to enter into the Kingdom of God. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

In the book of Romans 8:26, the Bible says, "likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." The Holy Spirit knows that we are weak in nature and sometimes, we want to pray but do not know what to say. He is always available to help us in our state of weakness. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

 

There are many more works the Holy Spirit does that cannot be completely discussed in this brief articles but the above points exemplify the importance of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Get connected immediately to Jesus Christ by becoming a born again today, and begin to enjoy the services of the Holy Spirit, the Counsellor, Comforter, helper, intercessor, advocator, strengthener, and your standby power. In places where there are no electricity, the Holy Spirit is your standby generator to light your life up. May God bless you as you do this in obedience.

ARTICLE 20.

THE POWER OF TESTIMONY

 

My friends, this is a brief article about the power of testimony. By virtue of my daily contact with different people and counselling them, I know that testimony brings joy, peace and increase.

 

God likes us more when we keep His word and testify to His goodness in our lives and I believe, that unless we do that, we will cut short the flow of His goodness in our directions.

 

The enthusiasm for God's enlightening word delights those who trust in Him. In the book of Psalm 119:22, "remove from me reproach and contempt, for I have kept Your testimonies" The Bible tells us that David was one of the many saints who kept the word of God and repeatedly testified for His goodness seven times each day. No wnoder he was referred to as the man after the heart of God.

 

In Psalm 119:164, "Seven times a day I praise You, because of Your righteous judgements." What is that righteous judgement? The answered prayers from contempt, defence of His people, protection and deliverance from evil men, safekeeping from wickedness, relief from persecutors, songs of victory over the enemies, thanksgiving for deliverance from death, God's faithfulness and justice, assurance of prosperity and success, praising God for His holiness and restoration of favour to our land, et cetera.

 

Like any other earthly fathers, if their children do not appreciate their efforts and goodness, barriers begin to manifest in both the hearts and actions to continue to supply and show goodness in their ways. "Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God as noted in Luke 12:8."

 

Furthermore in the book of Matthew 10:32, "Therefore, whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven."

 

In the book of Psalm 92:2, the Bible says, "To declare Your loving-kindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night." My friends, we must learn to glorify the LORD for His wonderful works whenever we wake up in the morning and whenever we retire to bed. He is worthy to be praised and glorified for His goodness in our lives.

 

I believe that when we appreciate the art of testifying the goodness of the LORD God in our lives, we open the door for the grace of more goodness in our ways and also create confidence and encouragement for others who are emotionally injured to look onto God for their own miracles. Please, let us not allow the pressures of life to steal the joy, peace, increase and opportunity to testify the goodness of God in our lives. We must stand up and challenge every satanic manipulations that want to deny us the privileges and benefits packaged in testimonies in the name of Jesus.

ARTICLE 21.

THE POWER OF ANGELS OF GOD

 

My friends this is a brief article about the angels of God. It is worth noting that there are good and fallen angels floating around on assignments from the different kingdoms, the kingdom of God and that of the devil. This article is about the Angels of God, who are our personal bodyguards standing before God in heaven to intervene on our behalf.

 

Jesus said in the book of Matthew 18:10, "Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven."

 

The little ones referred here are 'the believers, the redeemed, the blessed, the children of God. Those who have confessed Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, born again believers'. These angels are our personal bodyguards listening for instructions from God and intervening on matters concerning us in heaven and on the earth. When we put them into proper use, victory is always assured. Apostle Peter, whilst in prison experienced angelic intervention in the book of Acts 12:7.

 

The Bible says in the book of Psalm 34:7, "the angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them." If you are one of those who fear God, then the angels of God are at your service ready to minister to you.

 

Furthermore, in the book of Psalm 103:20-21, "Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure." Angels of the Lord are God's messengers sent to minister to believers who are not capable, by their own strength, to do certain things in life until and unless there is an angelic intervention.

 

Daniel also experienced angelic intervention in the book of Daniel 10:12-14; Daniel 9:3, 21-22; Daniel 6:19-22.God sent angels to go and deliver answers to his prayers.

 

Angels of God are part of the package for our redemption and we must put their ministry into effective action. They listen to the word of God from our mouth and wait for our command to do the pleasure of God on our behalf when properly delegated by us.

 

In the book of Hebrew 1:14, "Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?" Angels of God minister and intervene wherever necessary to protect people of God. They have extraordinary strength, which no power on earth and underneath the earth can withstand.

 

I know and I believe that when angels of God are put into proper use, immediate results are achievable.... Start from today and do justice to this angelic office and see things begin to unfold. As noted in the book of Daniel above, usually, when God releases answers to our prayers, there are always other invisible combatants that do contend to stop us receiving our gifts.

 

Apostle Paul confirmed this in the book of 1 Corinthians 16:9, "For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries." Some of these adversaries are not visible but powerful and until you call the services of the angels of God, you may wait pretty long time to recover your belongings.

ARTICLE 22.

THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS

 

My friends, this is a brief article about the power in the blood of Jesus. When you know the key in your possession, then it becomes possible to make proper use of it. Before the blood of Jesus, the Old Testament high priests used the blood of animals to make atonements. The Bible says in the book of Exodus 30:10, "And Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonement; once a year he shall make atonement upon it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord."

 

In the book of Hebrews 9:12-15, "For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgression under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance."

 

My friends, the blood of Jesus is a better blood not made with hands, that is, not of this creation that obtained eternal redemption for us. His blood is a more superior weapon that subdues, conquers any captivity and destroys roadblocks.

 

In the book of Zechariah 9:11-12, "As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you." The blood is the Passover blood that saves, rescues, secures, protects, purges the heart and also the stronghold of every believer. By the application of the blood, every obstacle is disengaged, roadblocks removed and sentry points destroyed because of the blood covenant.

 

Beloved, every believer is bought by the precious blood as noted in Acts 20:28 and translated into the Kingdom of light. The blood covenant is God's finger on the button for the deliverance of the believer. It guarantees automatic safety and no power on earth and underneath the earth can withstand the power of the blood.

 

In Revelation 12:11, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." The blood is the key in the hand of every believer to overcome the devil when correctly engaged. It is the final weapon that silenced the devil on the Cross of Calvary. Apply the blood today, everyday and now to receive your victory in the name of Jesus. The blood of Jesus brings testimony, joy, peace and increase and do not allow the pressures of life to deny you the opportunity to apply the blood to completely and soundly destroy the plots and devices of the devil. The blood in your hand makes you a winner any day and anytime in the name of Jesus. AMEN.

WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS RELEVANCE TO YOU!

 

The Holy Spirit is the Power and Spirit of God here on earth, He is the Chief Executive and the third member of the threefold Godhead. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is a person with numerous relevance in your life if you will only give Him the chance. Let us look at the Holy Spirit and how His relevance can help you in the storms of life.

 

As in the book of Psalm 139:7, the Bible says, "where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?" From the above scripture, the Holy Spirit is present everywhere, therefore it is to your advantage that He is 24/7 around you. Whenever you call upon Him, He is ever ready to answer your call because He is indwelling in you.

 

As in the book of 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, the Bible says, "but it is written: eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God." From these scriptures we can deduce that the Holy Spirit knows all things that have not entered into our hearts. This is an advantage to you that secret things can be revealed whenever you ask Him.

 

As in the book of Luke 1:35, the Bible says, "and the angel answered and said to her, the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God." The above scripture shows how powerful the Holy Spirit is, which is to your advantage that your guardian power, comforter, et cetera has unlimited power.

As in the book of Hebrews 9:14, the Bible says, "how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" He is eternal Spirit without beginning or end, He is unchanging, what He promises to do that He will do without fail.

 

The Holy Spirit has feelings and He is sensitive to know how you feel also, as noted in the book of Ephesians 4:30, "and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption"

 

As in the book of Romans 8:27, the Bible says, "now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God." The Holy Spirit has an intellect, able to think and reason what the saints want and link them with the will of God to bring solution. He is all over our issues, talking with us, unfolding Himself up to us and want us to unfold ourselves to Him in response.

 

It is impossible to live comfortable and know the power and strength of God without the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit, we experience the depth of God's love in our lives and come into new and stronger relationship with God. He also makes us become more sensitive to the presence of God, Jesus and Himself.

 

The presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives makes us more aware of our authority and power in Christ over the enemy, He is our comforter, helper, strengthener, counsellor, advocator, intercessor and standby power, therefore impossible to be defeated in any battle.

THREE REASONS TO FORGIVE

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is to pardon yourself or someone else from the pain and anger of the past. Forgiveness is the total cancellation of bitterness and a complete new beginning in your life. It is not soft-hearted stupidity but a step toward achieving your breakthroughs. To forgive is courage and essential for your healing. Forgiveness can save your eternal soul and is not optional.

 

1 Forgiveness is essential for your healing. Jesus saw the relationship between forgiveness of sin and healing. He said, “Thy sins be forgiven thee… Be healed” Matthew 9:2; Mark 2:5.

 

The Bible tells us, Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” One day, I opened the door for healing and freedom with a question to God, “What can I do to end this sadness” For your emotional, mental and spiritual survival, you must learn to “do what you have not done before”. The revelation is “you must forgive your enemy, totally and completely.

 

2. Forgiveness can save your eternal soul. If you will not forgive others, God cannot forgive you. If you remain in a state of unforgiveness, you cannot enter the gates of heaven. The bitterness you are holding toward another person is your “Wall of Jericho” that is preventing your breakthroughs, miracles, testimonies. “ Let it go now, today and completely. What you need is forgiveness and peace.

 

Forgiveness is not an emotion. It is, first, an act of your will, then God’s peace and joy, which you need to withstand every storm. If you fail to forgive others, you will perpetually live in hell every day of your live. “Let it go right this moment.”

 

3. Forgiveness is not optional. Jesus said in the book of Matthew 6:14-15, “For if you forgive your brothers and sisters their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive your brothers and sisters their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses”. In the book of Luke 6:37, the Bible tells us to “Forgive, and you will be forgiven”.

 

In the book of Ephesians 4:32, Apostle Paul tells us to “And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgive one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. God is perfect, loving and forgiven, and He forgave you and I, all our sins, why then can’t you, with all your faults and failures, forgive others. The fact is not that you “can’t forgive but you just don’t want to forgive.

 

In the New Testament, there are sixty-two references for forgiveness and twenty-two of those involved forgiving others. Again, without forgiving others and yourself, it is impossible for God to forgive you.

 

Ask yourself when was the last time you were really vex with somebody? When was the last time you planned to disgrace or hurt somebody because of what the person did to you in the past? The lists are inexhaustible. You will never be free from any of this until you learn to totally forgive others for their trespasses against you. The person you are bitter about is less concerned but you are harming yourself. Forgive them and be free for your peace of mind.

 

Note! To forgive others without demanding a change in their conduct is to make the grace of God an accomplice to evil. Tell them, I have forgiving you but you must also turn from your sins. The forgiveness that Jesus Christ teaches in the Bible demands a change, repentance. I would hope that this brief article, has made sense to you.

ARTICLE 25.

WHY YOU SHOULD ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is all about pardon from something you may have done or done against you. It is to cease to blame or hold on to resentment against yourself or someone. The book of Matthew 6:14-15 is an important principles to learn forgivemess. It says, "for if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

 

Following the above principles, it is therefore important to know that mankind is not sin free and therefore need to ask the LORD for forgiveness. Looking at the book of Psalm 51:1-12, then there is the need to ask God for forgiveness and WHY?

 

People break moral laws every day, otherwise called transgressions which need to be blotted out of our lives.

There is iniquity in our lives that need to be thoroughly washed.

We have all sinned and are carriers of sins before God, therefore need to cleansed.

We need to ask for forgiveness so that we may be blameless on the day of judgement.

We were all brought forth into this earth in iniquity and in sin oour mothers conceived us.

We need to ask for forgiveness so that we can be purged with hyssop.

So that we can be cleaned in order to be whiter than snow.

So that we can regain back our joy and gladness that was lost to sins.

So that the LORD does not hide His face from us and cast us away from His presence.

So that the Holy Spirit is not taken away from us.

So that the joy of our salvation is restored.

 

The Bible says in the book of 1 John 1:8-10, "if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. " Therefore, may I implore you to be brave enough to forgive yourself and be bold to ask the LORD to forgive you of all your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

 

God is inviting you to come to Him today for your salvation. He solidified this invitation by giving His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to pay the price of your sins. His grace has provided all the means for you to be saved, delivered, healed and restored. I guarantee you that when you decide to forgive yourself and others, He will wash and cleanse you, and you will receive abundant love, mercy and grace.

STEPS REQUIRED TO OBTAIN SALVATION

 

Jesus Christ is the living and active Head of this ministry, who directs our paths, sets our goal and mission. He is the Word of God, the Great High Priest, the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to God the Father except through HIM. He is the legal and spiritual Head of this house. (Ephesians 1:21-23). Amen.

 

The word salvation denotes the ideas of deliverance, safety, preservation, healing and soundness. It also covers all the redemptive matters and processes such as justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification and glorification.

 

God created man in His own image and gave him free access to fellowship with Himself and to have dominion over all creation. However, man lost these privileges to the devil by virtue of his disobedience to God's instructions in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:1-6. Although, God in His loving stance does not want anyone to perish but to be saved as noted in 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9. In the light of that God made provision for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ as referenced in Ephesians 2:8-9.

 

The following are the necessary steps you can follow to obtain your salvation:

1. Acknowledge and confess that you are a sinner and be sorry as noted in Romans 3:23; Isaiah 53:6; Psalm 51:5; Romans 5:12-14.

2. Recognise that the wages of sin is death as noted in the books of Romans 6:23; and John 3:36.

3. Believe that Christ died for your sins and rose again after 3 days for your justification as noted in Romans 5:8; John 3:15-21; Acts 16:31.

4. Repent of your sin, confess them and forsaken them with all your heart as noted in 1 John 1:9; Proverbs 28:13, Psalm 51:7.

5. Invite Jesus Christ into your heart as your LORD and Saviour as noted in Revelation 3:20; Matthew 11:28-30; John 6:37.

6. Confess Jesus Christ as your LORD and Saviour as noted in Romans 10:9-10

7. Finally, you now have the assurance of Salvation as noted in John 1:12-13; 1 John 5: 9-13

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE BORN AGAIN IN THIS CHANGING WORLD

 

My friends, before salvation, man is natural, unregenerated and dead to sin. He is therefore called an unbeliever who is alienated from the life of God and not a child of God. In fact, he does not have peace with God and himself, and is under the control of the devil. The unbeliever, therefore, needs to be forgiven and be reconciled to God to obtain deliverance and healing from the devil through Jesus Christ.

 

When man genuinely and sincerely surrender to God by way of confession, he becomes a born again, saved from the clutches of the devil. The Bible says in the book of Romans 10:9-10, "That if you confess with your mouth the LORD Jesus Christ and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation."

 

Thereafter, you thus become God-conscious and free to relate to God because you have now tasted the reality of God's love and forgiveness as noted in John 3:3-8; in Ephesians 2:1-5; in 1 Peter 1:23 and in Colossians 2:13.

 

After genuine and sincere confession, the following will ensue in the life of the believer:

1. You receive forgiveness of sins Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 10:17; Colossians 2:13-14.

2. You become regenerated as noted in Titus 3:5-7; and a new creation in 2 Corinthians 5:17.

3. You also become a child of God as noted in John 1:12-13; 1 John 3:1; Galatians 3:26.

4. You receive eternal life as noted in the books of 1 John 5:9-13; John 5:24; John 3:16.

5. You will also have peace with God as noted in Romans 5:1,10; Colossians 1:20-22.

6. Also, you become a heir of God and joint heir with our LORD Jesus Christ as noted in Romans 8:14-17; Galatians 4:6-7; Titus 3:7; Galatians 3:29.

7. You will also receive deliverance from the following actors: From sin unto good works as noted in Ephesians 2:10; 2 Corinthians 1:12; Romans 6:18.

8. You will also receive deliverance from powers of darkness to light as noted in 1 Peter 2:9, Colossians 1:13.

9. You will also receive deliverance from the powers of bondage to liberty as noted in Galatians 5:11.

10. You will also obtain deliverance from the powers of death to life as noted in John 5:24.

11. Furthermore, you become seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenly place in Ephesians 2:6.

My friends, as noted from above, a born again believer encompasses all of the above to fortify you and make you an inseparable member of the kingdon of God filled with the Holy Spirit and power to abuse and disable the devil.

 

Who then is the devil? He is Mr & Mrs Satan, the monsterious dragon, serpent, adversary, devil, enemy who deceives the whole world.

THE VICTORY OF JESUS ON THE CROSS IS MY GIFT

 

My friends, all the things that first Adam lost as a result of sin, the last Adam, Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary restored them back to me. The first Adam lost dominion, supernatural authority, everlasting covenant, ability to enter high places, THE Garden of Eden without struggles, access into the realm of supernatural wealth, redemptive dignity, joy, peace, love, everlasting living without death, fruitfulness and redemptive heritage to the devil.

 

On the cross in the book of John 19:30, when He, 'JESUS CHRIST' declared "IT IS FINISHED", the devil and all his agents were finished. All my saints brothers, sisters and myself were restored back to dominion and prominence. Beloved, the victory of Jesus Christ over the devil and the resurrection is my gift.

 

OUR GIFT N0 1: It is written in the book of Isaiah 53:12, "Therefore, I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." My friend rejoice, scream and shout for joy unspeakable because you now have in your hands the spoils of the devil to reclaim back your dominion, everlasting covenant, et cetera, without fear in the name of JESUS.

 

OUR GIFT N0 2: It is written in the book of Colossians 1:15, "He is the image of the invincible God, the firstborn over all creation." In Jesus Christ, we now know how God looks like. The image of the invicible Father as well as recognising Jesus as the firstborn over all creation. That is why He is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father except through Him in the name of JESUS.

 

OUR GIFT N0 3: It is written in the book of Ephesians 1:22, "And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church." My friend, you are part of the branch connected to the True Vine. For the life of the flesh is in the blood, you are directly connected to the family bloodline in heaven. Therefore, all things have been put under your feet and given dominion to possess the Land in the name of JESUS.

 

OUR GIFT N0 4: It is written in the book of 2 Corinthians 1:20, "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." My friend, note that All promises of God are contracts, and you have now entered into contract with God to ask anything according to His will in the name of Jesus and receive positive answers to your request. May God bless you in the mighty name of JESUS.

THERE IS POWER IN YOUR WORDS

My friend, there is power in your spoken words that can make or break you and possibly others around you. Therefore, it is necessary to examine all the words that come out of your mouth inwardly before releasing them. It is written in the book of Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."

 

Whatever words that you allow to come out of your mouth has very powerful force to make it become live and real. As a deliverance servant of God, I have counselled and seen many held bound through evil spoken words on themselves or by some others on them. The devil has no power over you as a person, except when you voluntarily issue a certificate, otherwise, a licence for him to operate in your life. If you have a visitor to your home, he cannot gain access into your home unless you open the door for him or you give him the keys to open for himself. It is the same for the spoken words as keys to open your life to either God or the devil.

 

From experience, I come to know that if you say to yourself, "I wish I were dead," you automatically open the door of your life to the spirit of death to come into your life to harass and intimidate you. Many people have been destroyed because of words spoken in anger. When a husband and his wife engage in disagreement and either spoke negative words, such as 'my marriage is a mess', automatically licence for relationship mess up / breakdown is issued to the devil.

 

Furthermore, there has been many distressed women in the world today due to circumstances beyond their control, who have uttered words that have been disastrous to their future family. Many unhappy pregenant women have spoken negative words against their pregnancy such as ' I wish I abort this baby' or 'I don't want this child'. By this simple spoken word, the woman places a curse on the life of the unborn baby. You wonder what this child will become if he or she survives such negative onslaughts or attacks from the womb of the mother. It is written in the book of Matthew 12:37, "For by thy words thou shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned."

 

Unless people learn to trust and lean to the LORD by regularly professing the word, 'I will by His grace,' rather than the worldly word of 'if.' Stand up and cancel the 'if' word in your vocabulary, and regularly use the word, 'I will by God's grace' and you will go through any difficulty times in JESUS name. There is nothing impossible in live when you believe and put your trust in God. It is written in the book of Luke 1:37, "For with God nothing will be impossible." There is power in the spoken words. For injury caused by knives and guns will heal very quickly as long as you survive the ordeal, but injury caused by negative words remain forever.

 

Do not allow your feelings to control your spoken words because feelings will not remain permanent. Therefore, grow up and begin to learn to construct positive words in every situation you may find yourself in the name of JESUS. Go back or revisit all the negative words you may knowingly or ignorantly uttered and begin to break them by fire of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus.

 

I hope that this brief article can bring LIGHT into your life and may God bless you in the mighty name of JESUS

ARTICLE 30.

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD BUT GODS:

 

My friends, there is only one God who has absolute dominion because He is the creator of all things. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth as noted in Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1-3. For by Him were all things created that are in heaven, and are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers, all things were created by Him, and for Him, Colossians 1:16.

 

God is the supreme authority who has all the relevant codes, passwords and scripts necessary for the survival of mankind. He knows what is about to happen in the next second and up into trillions of years, for which no other powers can accurately foretell.

 

All events currently happening in the world have already been prophecied to happen at specifc times and seasons as noted in Revelations 17, 18, et cetera, and advisable to all believers and mankind in general, to take note of the prophetic direction of our LORD Jesus Christ in Luke 21:36, "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man".

 

I believe that there is no God but GOD because the Word of God, the Bible says so in the book of Deuteronomy 4:35.... "To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD Himself is GOD; there is none other besides Him." This is an emphatic statement to show that only GOD has solution for the problems of the world.

 

God is a total package as noted in the book of Revelation 1:8,11 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. In verse 11, saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, and, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea."

 

The Bible says in the book of Colossians 1:17 "And He is before all things and in Him all things consist." It also says in the book of Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!"

 

God is also highlighted in the book of 2 Samuel 7:22 "Therefore You are great, O LORD God. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears."

 

In the book of I Chronicles 17:20 "O LORD, there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears."

 

Again in the book of Psalms 86:10 "For You are great, and do wondrous things; You alone are God."

 

Furthermore, there was no other God formed before or after God as shown in the book of Isaiah 43:10 "You are My witnesses, says the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me."

 

In the book of Isaiah 46:9-10 "Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,"

 

In the book of Psalms 83:18 "That men may know that You, whose name alone is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth."

 

In the book of Mark 12:29 "Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, The LORD our God, the LORD is one."

 

The Bible also says in the book of I Corinthians 8:4-6 "Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is only one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live."

 

The Bible called Him an eternal God in the book of Deuteronomy 33:27 "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, Destroy!"

 

It also solidifies our confidence in the only GOD in the book of Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." He never changes.

 

My friends, I am proud to be associated with the kingdom of God because it is sovereign, supreme in rank, authority, excellence and eternal as noted in the books of Psalms 45:6 and Hebrews 1:8 "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Your kingdom."

 

In the book of Psalms 47:2 "For the LORD Most High is awesome; he is a great King over all the earth.

 

In the book of Psalms 75:6-7 "For exaltation comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: He puts down one, and exalts another."

 

In the book of Daniel 4:17 "This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men." There is no other God but GOD the creator of heaven and the earth. Right now, much of the world, most in particularly the western Europe is in disarray, in danger of falling apart as EU leaders struggle to patch-over a completely destroyed world and financial systems. Banks are no longer able to maintain the credibility they once enjoyed, millions all over the world are losing their jobs, losing homes, big banks going into bankruptcy and tension all over.

 

God said in the book of Isaiah 46:9-10 "Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,"

 

When mankind has exhausted all efforts and fail, then the God we serve the true God in the book of Daniel 2:44, will arrive and set up His kingdom. Praise God for their is no other god but GOD in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

THE LIVING RIVER OF GRACE

 

In the book of "Ezekiel 47:9-12, And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine. Miraculous river that has power to turn salt water into fresh water and gives life. The blood of Jesus, the living river that heals. Praise God.

 

In this vision, God brought Ezekiel to the door of the temple to show him the LIVING RIVER flowing from under the threshold of the temple towards the east. This living river is the power of God in action to affect change by setting captives free and rescuing those who are oppressed. The living river is full with the goodness of God, loaded with the healing power to heal the brokenhearted, brings deliverance and change life as in Luke 4:18.

 

This living river ensures the blind to recovery his sights and become what God originally purposed for him. It gives the lame the opportunity to walk so that he can be useful to the Kingdom of God. It provides the opportunity for the deaf to hear and do what God wants him to do. It raises the dead and sets him free from the entanglement of the gravecloth because he has already being ransomed from the power of the grave and redeemed from the power of death. It opens the prison doors and sets captives free from captivity. The living river has the power to convert evil mountains to miracles, defeat to victory, failure to success, demotion to promotion and disappointment to appointment.

 

The living river is the blood of Jesus Christ, loaded with the power to give life and deliver whatsoever that gets in contact with. This living river is Jesus Christ, who came by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself, and therefore whatever sickness and disease will be healed. It is the testimony that God has given to us, the Eternal life, including salvation, deliverance, healing, wealth, prosperity, spiritual power and authority, etc, and this Eternal life is in Jesus Christ, the Living River.

 

Brethren, what is it that you are suffering from, what are you going through that needs help. You are not alone, if that issue has a name, then there is an answer. Whether it is cancer, diabetes, high-blood pressure, financial difficulty, economic matters, family and marital issues, whatever it is, ONLY BELIEVE! If you will only believe in Jesus Christ, the LIVING RIVER you will be cleansed, healed, saved and delivered. He who has the Son has life but he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have Eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will be healed. Now this is the Confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us, and if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him as in 1 John 5:14-15.

 

The Living River is full of the anointing of God that destroys every yoke, breaks every burden, brings favour to every situation, miraculously turning salt water into fresh water and producing life in fish, trees and makes medicines from leaves.

ARTICLE 32.

BELIEVERS WHO DO NOT LIVE BY GRACE FAIL

AND FALL.

 

Yes believers who do not live by the grace of God can fail and fall. There are three principal points I believe that can cause believers who do not live by the grace of God to fail and fall even when they attempt to live righteous life. Although, God has provided escape route to His children as noted in the book of 1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

 

These three areas are vital for the river of grace of God to flow in abundance in the lives of believers or for the river of grace of God to completely dry up, thereby generating lives full of storms.

 

THREE AREAS TO ADDRESS.

 

1.. Those who exhibit the art of pride and decide to freely opt-out of the grace of God, believing that they can do things by themselves. These particular believers do not agree with the truth of the word that they are saved only by grace of God through faith and not by their own efforts. As the Scripture says, in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

 

Nobody that comes to Christ does anything to earn salvation. It is a gift giving by God and obtainable through faith in believing in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour. The prideful believers normally do not buy this truth and the consequences of their willful disobedience are continuous struggling, falling and failing. May God help to change their mindset and redirect their thoughts about grace in the name of Jesus.

 

2. There are believers who are ignorant of the truth of grace of God and by so doing decide to opt-out to live life by their own efforts.. It is not by our might or power but by the Spirit of GOD and by His word.. The Bible says in the book of 1 Peter 1:23, “Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.”

 

These group of believers, I believe struggle to comprehend the truth of their new birth experience, that they are automatically born of the Holy Spirit by the grace of God, and can do nothing whatsoever to add or subtract from the new birth experience. Therefore, their ignorance of accepting the truth, divert their thoughts to doing things differently. And also, wanting to function by their own efforts, leading to continuous falling and failing in life. I pray that the truth of the word of God is made manifest to them in the name of Jesus.

 

3. Other believers lose or fail to keep the grace of God in order to live righteous lifestyle because they wanted to do things outside of the Holy Spirit.. Beloved, this is the tricky part of the above point. As believers, we do not lose our eternal life, 'Once saved, always saved' but you could lose your grace to live righteous lifestyle except you repent from what caused you to fall. The grace of God is losable and removable when wrongly or inappropriately applied or used.

 

There are numerous accounts where believers, covenant people lose the grace of God upon their lives. When Miriam and Aaron rebelled against Moses, Miriam lost her grace of beauty and health and became leproused for one week as noted in the book of Numbers 12:1,9-15, “Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman. So the anger of the LORD was aroused against them, and He departed. And when the cloud departed from above the tabernacle, suddenly Miriam became leprous, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned toward Miriam, and there she was, a leper. So Aaron said to Moses, 'Oh, my lord! Please do not lay this sin on us, in which we have done foolishly and in which we have sinned. Please do not let her be as one dead, whose flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb! So Moses cried out to the LORD, saying, 'Please heal her, O God, I pray!' Then the LORD said to Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, would she not be ashamed seven days? Let her be shut out of the camp seven days, and after that she may be received again. So Miriam was shut out of the camp seven days, and the people did not journey on till Miriam was brought in again.” This was how Miriam lost her grace of beauty and good health..

 

Furthermore, according to the word of God, God takes away the grace of acceptance when believers, covenant people fail to obey His Word and instructions as noted in the book of 1 Samuel 15:3,9,19,26. “Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey. So Saul gathered the people together and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand foot soldiers and ten thousand men of Judah. But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good, and were unwilling to utterly destroy them. But everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed. Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord? Why did you swoop down on the spoil, and do evil in the sight of the LORD? But Samuel said to Saul, 'I will not return with you, for you have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you from being king over Israel." This was how Saul lost the grace of his kingship.

 

Again, in the New Testament, Ananias and his wife Sapphira, lost their grace of 'life', the grace of living when they both conspired to lie to the Holy Spirit as noted in the book of Acts 5:5,10, “Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband.” This was how the husband and wife lost their lives.

 

Furthermore, the parable of the unforgiving wicked servant who lost the grace of freedom and liberty because of unforgiveness. In the book of Matthew 18:25-34, "But as he was not able to pay, his master commanded that he be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and that payment be made. The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, 'Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.' Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt. But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, 'Pay me what you owe!' So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.' And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt. So when his fellow servants saw what had been done, they were very grieved, and came and told their master all that had been done. Then his master, after he has called him, said to him, 'You wicked servant!' I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you? And his master was angry and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him."

THE NAMES OF GOD FOR YOUR EXPRESS ANSWER

This is a brief and not comprehensive article but as road map to help you make sense the importance of the names of God as it can be applied to your situation. My friend to effectively benefit from God, you must attempt to know Him and understand each of the name from the root He used in the past to execute judgement, healing, provision, display, wisdom, glory, honour, blessing, knowledge, power, et cetera. However,

 

Furthermore, God also packaged all His wonderful, glorious and powerful names into one major folder called Jesus Christ. In the book of Philippians 2:9-11, "Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

 

This is why and how dynamic the name Jesus Christ is to any one who believes in Him. However, for reference purposes, it is important not to be ignorant, that even, in the Kingdom of heaven 'who and what you know' matter in your fellowship and relationship with God. A typical example was in the book of Mark 10:48-49, when every one was clamouring in the name Jesus, but the blind Bartimaeus who needed express healing of his sight, The Bible says, “Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, using another name in the pack, Son of David, have mercy on me! So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.” And the rest was history! Solution all the way!. It is to your advantage to know what is contained in the package JESUS.

From my counselling experience, most people tend to read the Bible like any other books as though it is a novel. As a result they find it boring, uninspiring and lacking revelation. The Bible is the Word of God, it is God speaking directly to us and God is Spirit, and those who worship Him, fellowship with Him must do that in spirit and in truth.

 

Therefore, before you start to read the Bible, be in the spirit and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you the truth of what you are about to read, so that you can understand and learn the will and ways of God.

 

"John 16:13-14, says However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you."

 

It also tells us in the book of "Psalm 119:18, says open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law.” Having known these truths now, ensure that you are ready to accept the Word of God that you are reading whether it pleases you or not, otherwise there is no point reading it. As you begin to read, you will surely find out that there are certain words and statement that may appear strange to you and or displeasing, but it is important that you accept them without doubt. Hebrews 3:7-8, Hebrews 4:1-2, Romans 10:17.

 

My friends I will stress to you, very important......., pick up any verses and confess them loudly to God in prayers and praises. Though, our God is neither deaf nor blind, but by doing so, you disgrace and put the devil to shame and resist his attack as Jesus did in Matthew 4:7.

 

Furthermore, you will begin to build your faith and feed your spirit man and also release your inner powers as in Ephesians 3:20. At this stage, this brings me to the subject of meditation. You must learn to meditate on the Word of God and by so doing, will change your life as shown in the following scriptures, Jeremiah 6:16, Proverbs 4:20-23, Joshua 1:8.

 

Please, always learn to act upon what you have read in prayers and that will build your prayer vocabulary. Whatever message that comes to your heart, it is important that you write them down for that is some of the ways God may be speaking to you.

 

Also learn to memorise verses as much as you can to build your defences for any future attacks. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write to us and we hope that you have been blessed with this brief teaching.

 

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these thingsshall be addedto you.. GRACE is a place of unmerited favour, mercy, healing,deliverance and restoration through His Blood

THE MYSTERY OF GOD AND HIS

COVENANT EXPOSED

 

My friend, this is a brief article about God and His Covenant. God does not break His covenant nor alter His Word. He is a covenant keeping God., as in Psalm 89:34, My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

 

A covenant is not complete unless both parties fulfil their respective obligations to the covenant. A covenant is an agreement that must be kept, adhered to and complied with for it to be effective. Father Abraham was very faithful and because of that, the Abrahamic covenant assures you and I total package of blessings' in our physical health and material prosperity. In Galatians 3:13-14. It says "Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." Abraham remained obedient to God, faithfully obeyed, observed and followed God's commandments to the letter for the covenant to be active.

 

The Bible says in the book of Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." Seeking after God, as Abraham did, initiates you into a new order, new fellowship, and new relationship with God. When you obey, observe and comply with the Word of God, this powerful statement "all these things shall be added to you" is automatically activated with ease. Keep the covenant of this scripture and see your life blossom.

 

Seeking God first, actually means to trust Him with your life, and with all that you have. It also means to give to God not only when you are well off but also when you have little or nothing. It is an act of worshipping Him and this kind of sacrifice always opens up the gates and doors into God's heart to release miracles toward you. Please learn to give to God, wherever you worship and see for yourself how blossoming your life will look like. I pray, May God richly bless you, your family and all your endeavours in the mighty name of Jesus.

 

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write to us and we hope that you have been blessed with this brief teaching. If you wish to bless our ministries, then please send you gift offerings to

HOW BELIEVERS IN CHRIST CAN RECEIVE AND ACCEPT AUTHORITY

 

My friend, through obedience to the commandments of God, Jesus Christ received all authority in Heaven and earth. Therefore, any believers who believe in Jesus Christ also receive the same delegated authority to declare in His name and receive answers. Let us briefly review how He got the authority He gave to believers.

 

To receive something means to take, accept, get and or experience. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ sent by the Father, God to come down to the earth and sort out some corruptible things that were contrary to the principles and ways of God.

 

He accepted the assignment in obedience as noted in the book of John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” God released Him to us because of love and obedience and He finished His assignments.

 

In John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus corrected all the wrongs done by the devil and his associates. He came in the flesh and disgraced the devil.

 

In the book of 1 John 3:8, “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” He completed His purpose victoriously.

 

The Bible also tells us in the book of Luke 10:18, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Satan was defeated and thrown out.

 

It also tells us in the book of Hebrews 2:14-15, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of the flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” He subdued the power of death and took the keys of hell and Hades. He has therefore ransomed us from the power of the grave and redeemed us from the power of death.

 

In the book of Colossians 2:15, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” He was victorious over the powers of darkness.

 

Also, in the book of 1 Corinthians 15:53-54, “for this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: death is swallowed up in victory.” He was victorious over death.

 

In the book of Luke 1:74, “To grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear.” He delivered us from the kingdom of darkness into His marvellous kingdom of light.

 

In the book of Isaiah 45:13, “I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways; he shall build My city and let My exiles go free, not for price nor reward, says the LORD of hosts.” He raised us up in righteousness and justice.

 

In the book of Isaiah 42:7, “to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house.” He opened blind eyes and set captives free.

 

Jesus Christ having completed His assignment in obedience was rewarded by God as noted in Matthew 28:18, “Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”

 

My friend, therefore, through the obedience of Jesus Christ all authority in Heaven and earth that was given to Him, He now delegated that same authority to believers, as noted in Matthew 28:19-20, “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

 

Therefore, when a believer makes the following declaration in the name of Jesus, he automatically receives that delegated power and authority to deal with the pending situations:

 

Make your Declarations with Boldness........

 

In the book of Matthew 28:18, “Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the delegated authority to deal with any situation ......Amen.

 

In the book of Philippians 2:8-11, “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the authority and decree the truth of these verses to deal with the situation......Amen.

 

In the book of Ephesians 1:19-22, “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church;” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the authority and decree the truth of these verses to deal with the situation......Amen .

 

In the book of John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the authority and decree the truth of this verse to deal with the situation......Amen.

 

In the book of Mark 16:17-18, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they recover.” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the authority and decree the truth of these verses to deal with the situation......Amen.

 

In the book of Mark 11:22-24, “So Jesus answered and said to them, Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Therefore, in the name of Jesus, I receive the authority and decree the truth of these verses to deal with the situation......Amen

 

My friend, this is the way to receive and accept the delegated authority from the finished work of Christ. If you have been bless by this brief article and you wish to bless the ministries, and then please forward your gift offerings to us below:

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE THE BELIEVERS

LIFESTYLE WITHOUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD.

 

 

Beloved, one thing that I found out in a very hard way is that it is impossible to live believers lifestyle by your own efforts without the Spirit of God.. It is written in the book of Psalm 17:8, “keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings.” As the above scripture shows, to struggle and agonize are signs of not being kept as the apple of God’s eye and also not hidden under the shadow of His wings.

 

When believers attempt to do things without God, they are bound to struggle and agonize. Struggling and agonizing are functions of emotions and feelings and God does not dance to the tunes of emotions because He is a Spirit, emotions and feelings are of the soul. The above scripture is for the restoring of confidence when you are under pressure, advisable to apply it now in the name of Jesus.

 

The believer’s lifestyle is very simple if he can apply the basic principles involved. There is no point trying your very best doing things by your own efforts because your very best will amount to nothing before God. Just stop trying too hard and surrender totally to God. The Bible says in the book of Isaiah 64:6, “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags;”

 

I came in contact with some believers in my counselling session, who were quite nice and hard working but were struggling and agonizing in the way things were happening in their lives. The common trend was that they were all trying to make things happen without involving God. They clearly thought that they could change the world by their own strengths and might. The Bible says in the book of Zechariah 4:6, “....Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”Just stop trying too hard and surrender totally to Jesus as your LORD and personal Saviour.

 

My friend, it does not matter how hard you may try to make success of your careers, without the approval of God all your efforts may be futile. The Bible says in the book of Psalm 127:1, “Unless the LORD builds the house, they labour in vain who build it, unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” My friend, believers who fail to adhere to this simple foundational principle of the kingdom of God will struggle and agonize to the happiness of the devil. Get the LORD involved in every little decision making that will affect your lives and discover that struggle and agonize will be the things of the past.

 

All that God wants from us is total surrender and obedience in keeping to His statutes and commandments and all the rest will be done with ease.

 

There are two (2) key principles in the book of Matthew 22:37-40 that says, “Jesus said to him, you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, you shall love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

 

According to management and business strategy, you are asked to work out your SWOT analysis to know your position. SWOT means your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Your ability to accurately identify this simple step will lead you in the direction of success and less stress in operations. In the spirit world, the believer is to allow the Holy Spirit to lead him or her like as the blind man or woman is led.

 

Contrary to the above, many believers today struggle and agonize by trying to do things in their own power, wanting to work in the way of the world to solve problems. The way of the world is simply mind-control and will-power which only yield limited solutions because God did not create believers to live their lifestyle through self, in other words, by will power. Believers who try to live in the way of the world may do fairly well in the absence of storms of life, but when situations are contrary, will powers become ineffective. Your emotions cannot solve problems because they are variable products. You may find that one day your emotions are high in the mornings and go low in the evenings and the mood changes like unstable weather.

 

God’s intentions for believers are not to live by their feelings because it is tantamount to failure. In the composition of man, decision making on the board meeting is usually conducted by six actors, three principal parties, the body, soul and the spirit and 3 other sub participants, the will, emotions, mind. The mind will say his opinion and stand by that, the will makes his suggestion in connection with the mind and sometimes the emotions agree or disagree in doing things another way. But in all the meetings, the Spirit is always suppressed, who normally emphases on the Word of God to resolve teething issues. The principle of democracy, the 5 actors - the body, soul, will, mind and emotion under the control of the soul always outvote the Spirit whose contribution is only the Word of God.

 

The Bible says in the book of Philippians 2:13, “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”

 

As believers, we must learn to cast our cares unto God who cares for us, let Him do His will and do His good pleasure in our lives and the false spirits of struggling and agonizing will flee from us. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to direct our path and set our daily priorities. My friend, the Bible says in the book of Titus 3:5-7, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

 

Beloved, living as a believer is not hard but clearly impossible if you want to do things by your own strength. God has given all believers the Holy Spirit to live in our hearts and empower us to obey His commandments. In the book of Ezekiel 36:27, “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statues, and you will keep My judgements and do them.”

 

All believers were chosen and appointed by Jesus according to John 15:16, therefore, are not empowered by the LORD to try to do things by themselves without the involvement and permission of God through the Holy Spirit. Stop struggling and agonizing today and surrender totally to Jesus your Lord and Saviour in the name of Jesus. May God richly bless you, family and all your endeavours in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

SALVATION BY WAY OF UNSEATING THE STRONGMAN:

 

My friends, the power behind the scene that holds people to ransom in order to deny them the opportunity for salvation by way of fear and unbelief is the family strongman. This strongman is the devil, Satan, the adversary and enemy to God and mankind. He and his agents the witches, wizards, occult powers, et cetera must be confronted head on, otherwise the victims will remain uninterested to salvation.

 

Believers must put on the whole armour of God to be spiritually empowered and forceful to reclaim the legal ground the enemy has occupied back to the kingdom of God. The Bible says in the book of Matthew 11:12, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent taken it by force. To unseat the family strongman and set captives free, the strongman must be bound, chained with fetters of iron and cast down to the bottomless pit.

 

The Bible says in the book of Matthew 12:28-29, “But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or else how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.”

 

In the book of Mark 3:27, "No one can enter a strong man's house, and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house".

 

In the book of Luke 11:21-22, "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armour in which he trusted, and divides his spoils." God is stronger than the devil and all his evil spirits.

 

The Word of God says in the book of Jeremiah 51:20-23, "You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: for with you I will break the nation in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms; with you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; with you I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider; with you also I will break in pieces man and woman; with you I will break in pieces old and young; with you I will break in the young man and the maiden; with you also I will break in pieces the shepherd and his flock; with you I will break in pieces the farmer and his yoke of oxen; and with you I will break in pieces governors and rulers." My friend, until the strongman, the captor who has bound prospective believers into captivity is completely broken into pieces to set captives free, salvation will not just come to those who are handicapped.

 

Beloved, in one of my consultations, there was a lady called Ms Beautty in search for employment around our church area and visited for prayer of favour and after the prayers, I asked if she had given her life to Jesus Christ and she said no. Furthermore, asked if she would like to make the decision to surrender her life to Christ, she was indecisive and uninterested because of doubt and fear. That was the handiwork of the strong man that had intimidated her to the level of fear and doubt resulting to mind blindness.

 

I asked if she would like to destroy this invisible power behind her afflictions, the strongman and straighten her life, once and for all, and she said yes. I know that I have the delegated power and authority in the name of Jesus to drive the evil spirits out of her, see articles on "How to Receive and Accept Delegated Authority". So I prayed with her, Father Lord in the name of Jesus, according to your word in John 3:16 You loved the whole world so much that You gave your own Son, Jesus to die for the world. Therefore, today I declare that "Ms Beautty is part of the whole world". Oh God my LORD, I also declare that You have already demonstrated Your love for Ms Beautty because Jesus gave His life for her which He paid by the shedding of His blood on the cross of Calvary.

 

Almighty God in the name of Jesus, Your word says in 1 John 2:2 that Jesus was not only the propitiation (substitute) for the sins of Believers, but also for the sins of the whole world, and Beatty is included.

 

Abba Father in the name of Jesus, Your word says in 2 Peter 3:9 and 1 Timothy 2:4, that it is not Your intention for anyone to perish, but that everyone should come to the knowledge of truth. Therefore, I declare that it is Your will that Beautty should not perish, but know the truth.

 

Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus, Your word also says in 1 John 5:14-15, that if I ask anything according to Your will that you will hear my prayer and give me what I ask for. Therefore, I ask that You by Your grace bring Beautty to the knowledge of truth, that Jesus Christ is Lord.

 

Oh God in the name of Jesus, Your word also says in 2 Corinthians 4:4, that if the gospel is hidden, it is because the strongman has blinded the minds of those who have not received the truth. THEREFORE, I declare that Beautty should have the right and privilege to be free to receive the good news and give her life to Jesus as her Lord and personal Saviour.

 

In the name of Jesus, according to Your word in Matthew 16:19, I bind the enemies of confusion, doubt, and fear and declare that Beautty is free to make the decision to surrender to Jesus in the mighty name of Jesus.

 

Now, after the whole prayers and citations, I led Ms Beautty in the prayer of commitment because all the powers of the strongman has been decimated and destroyed in the name of Jesus. Ms Beautty repented, renounce all her sins and accepted Jesus Christ as the Son of God who died for her on the cross. She gave her life to Jesus as her LORD and personal Saviour and asks that the Holy Spirit to come and live inside of her in the name of Jesus. This is a deliverance method of obtaining salvation by way of bulldozing, destroying, dismantling and unseating the strongman once and for all for the prospective believers to be able to make conscious decisions in accepting Jesus as LORD and personal Saviour. Amen.

WARFARE SCRIPTURES TO FACE THE ENEMY.

 

My friends, this page is delivered exclusively for warfare and the following warfare scriptures can assist you if properly utilised to achieve undeniable victory.

 

SOME WARFARE SCRIPTURES

 

Brethren, people of God, times for cosmetic and chocolate Christianity is finished. You are either ready to spiritually rise up from spiritual slumber to defend yourselves or being blown away by the storms of life. We are in a serious invisible warfare which Satan has orchestrated and need to be addressed in every Christian gathering. The world is changing very rapidly each day and the devil is gone digital. The things of God are being increasingly marginalised, rapid christian families break-ups, repossessions (foreclosures), collapse of businesses, banks closing down, acute unemployment and centres fallen apart.

 

These are all the strategic works of Satan, the devil, the adversary to destabilize the entire Christian world with his diabolic activities. As ambassadors and warriors of Jesus Christ, we must sit up and put on the whole armour of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For the battle is not against flesh and blood but against Satan and all his pillars and structures in high places on the earth.

BELIEVERS WHO LIVE BY GRACE CANNOT FAIL

 

My friend, every believer is saved only by the grace of God through faith and not by his own efforts. As the scripture says in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.”

 

Nobody does anything or work to earn salvation, it is a gift giving by God for which it is received through faith in believing and committing in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour. One confesses with the mouth and believe with the heart that Jesus was raised from the dead by God. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation as noted in Romans 10:9-10.

 

To live by grace means to tal submission of your will to God. All and every of your actions are directed and supervised by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, your total obedience to the Spirit of God can never let you down. The Bible also says in the book of 1 Peter 1:23, “Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.” When you become a born again, you are automatically born of the Holy Spirit by the grace of God, by which you can do nothing to add or subtract from your new birth experience.

 

Furthermore, when you become a born again, God delivers to you a new mind and new spirit to live a righteous lifestyle devoid of sinning as noted in the book of Ezekiel 36:27, “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgements and do them.”

 

Again, you cannot fail if you live by grace because God has made a provision of escape route for you as noted in the book of 1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

 

God the Father authorises you to live life peacefully, joyously and do things in accordance with His will and by so doing help to set priorities for your life as noted in the book of Philippians 2:13, “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”

 

Therefore, any believers who allow the will of God to be done in their lives can never fail because He will direct their foot paths. When you live your life by the grace of God, you are automatically enabled by the Spirit of God to do anything whatsoever, that He has asked you to do as noted in the book of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

 

Therefore, I submit to you that believers who live by the grace of God and observe His statutes, can never fail because the angels of God who excels in strength, who do His word and pleasure will direct their path to success.

ARTICLE 42.

IS SALVATION LOSABLE ONCE IN CHRIST?

 

Beloved, the quick answer from me is no, no, no. Now read the brief article. Please, let no man deceive you with brilliant speeches. Salvation is not losable once you give your life to Christ Jesus. The most beautiful and mysterious things about the gift of salvation is that the moment you make the quality decision to accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal LORD and Saviour, you can never lose your salvation. Jesus Christ is there (in your heart) to stay.

 

The moment He comes into your life, He cannot be pushed away because He is there to stay permanently. He knows that you are not perfect and that the world is full of errors and imperfections. It is on these basis that He gave us the following words of God to encourage your find your feet back once into error in the book of Genesis 28:15, "Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.

 

Again it is written in the book of Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."

 

Also, it is written in the book of Deuteronomy 31:8, "And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed."

 

Once again, it is written in the book of Joshua 1:5, "No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you."

 

Furthermore, it is written in the book of Hebrews 13:5, "Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you."

 

In all of the above, Jesus said He is there to stay, He will not leave you nor forsake you in any of your shortcomings. He knows that you are not perfect in this imperfect world and inspite of that He still loves you and He will be with you forever.

 

He even reemphasis the above statements to you in the book of Matthew 28:20, "And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." There is nothing whatsoever any man dead or alive or even you yourself can ever do or say that will invalidate, revoke, neutralize, nullify, or cancel the above promises. When He forgave you all your sins and wash you clean with His blood, He also provided you with spiritual medication to undo your immediate errors and mistakes in the book of 1 John 1:9. This promise does not only function for you now but also for future shortcomings that you may fall into without your control.

ARTICLE 47.

PROVOKING YOUR FAITH IN GOD FOR YOUR SUCCESS AND VICTORY:

 

Beloved, faith is your real and actual demonstration of confidence in God and His word without doubt, even when you have not seen the physical manifestations. You can provoke and express it through God's word as noted in Hebrews 10:35-36, "Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise."

 

Until you demonstrate in obedience the word of God, even when you have not sighted the road map for success, there is no faith. I could recall many years ago when I finished my MBA project and commenced my practise as management and business consultant as well as enrolled for my DBA project. One faithful day, the LORD spoke to me, My son, turnaround and preach My word to My people. Without any questions or doubts whatsoever in my mind, I obeyed the divine VOICE and carried the banner without looking back and now filled with joy unspeakable. It is written in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

 

Like in the Old Testament, God spoke to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3, “Now the LORD had said to Abram: ‘Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed’” Without doubt, Abraham went as the LORD directed and the rest was history. Today he is the father of all born again believers, the new Jewish people in Christ Jesus. That is what I personally call an absolute demonstration of confidence in God and His word.

 

Beloved, after 25 years Abraham waited for a child which the LORD God promised him, Isaac. And when the child arrived, God demanded that he brought him to a meeting place on the mountain so that He could be sacrificed in Genesis 22:2, “Then He said, ‘Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you’”. He obeyed without question, because he believed that if God could give him a child at 100 years of age, there is nothing that He could not do. He could even give him another Isaac from the stones.

 

Esther provoked her faith and confidence in God and His word to confront king Ahasuerus to save her people from imminent destruction. Faith without action is dead, so she went ahead to meet the king believing that if she perishes so be it in Esther 4:16, “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

 

 

King Nebuchadnezzar threatened to destroy three Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego with fiery furnace, unless they bow down and serve him and his idols. These boys know their God, had faith and confidence to refuse to bow to pressure of the king. It is noted in Daniel 3:17-18, “If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we the gold image which you have set up worship.” This is an expression of absolute confidence in the LORD God and great recompense of reward came to them.

 

There is nothing impossible for God to do when your faith is active and in consonance with God and His words. Nothing gets done in the kingdom without faith. Faith is like the electric switch that turns on the greatness of God’s power, disconnects obstacles and provides escape root for any emergency in 1 Corinthians 10:13, “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

 

This present world is filled with doubts and confusion, so you must learn on how to provoke your faith in the things of God. For your faith to become strong and not weak, and produce results for you, you must be a doer of the word. You must practice the word and make it practical to your spirit, exercise it daily..

 

Beloved brethren, you may be wondering how you can turnaround from all your academic excellence, and from many other accolades and tributes to serve the LORD Jesus Christ. Mr friends the pursuit for crown in the kingdom of God is far greater than whatever achievements you may have accrued or about to obtain on the earth.

 

Today, many believers are suffering untold hardship and pains in dealing with the issues of faith. They are struggling extensively attempting to please God but without any rewards. The effect of this empty exercise of faith-act results in backsliding and doubts. Your faith must originate and correspond with the word of God otherwise it is fake action and will yield no dividends to you. Whatsoever that you want God to do for you, whether to wipe off your arrears, mortgage, debt, fruitfulness, purchasing your own property, marriage, residency, healing, children, etc, find the word that deals with it in the Bible and place your faith with action on it, without doubt. Then LORD will surely arrive to His word and come to your aids. Praise God!

 

Lets review briefly some of these issues:

 

1. According to Luke 11:9-10, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Do you know that you are ordained to receive. You don’t have to beg for it but just speak it by faith and receive your wealth.

 

2. About poverty? According to 2 Corinthians 8:9, “For you know the grace of our LORD Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” It is your duty to meditate and personalize and receive your blessings in God’s words by speaking in consonance with Him to wipe out your debts. Don’t begin to beg to God to give you money.. That’s wrong approach, but begin to declare that you are rich, you have money because He has given you all the favour and blessings in abundance.

 

3. DONT CRY AND BEG GOD, activate His word! According to Mark 11:23, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea; and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.’” Stop crying and begging God. Whatever you may be looking for is yours already after the resurrection. Stop begging LORD because your emotion will not move Him, ... just declare His word and receive in the name of Jesus.

 

4. STOP PRAYING OH LORD GIVE ME A CHILD. According to Psalm 127:3, “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Also in Deut 7:14, “You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock.” Stop praying for what He has already given to you. Just keep thanking Him, for you’ve received your children, because His words says so. Speak the word by faith and not emotion.
