I shall fear no evil in Jesus name

 
 Memorise: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation:but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn 16:33)Read: Revelation 1:17-18
As some women came towards the tomb of Jesus in Matthew 28:1-7, they were worrying. They were bothered about who would roll away the stone so that they could anoint His body with the special spices they had prepared.

But when they got there, they discovered that the stone had been rolled away. The stone was not rolled back for Jesus but for the women – to eradicate the source of their worries. The angel also rolled the stone so that the strong desires and aspirations of the women would not be hindered. This gives us assurance that if He could roll away the stone for the women, He can uproot the mountains in your life.

If God could bring Jesus back from the dead, healing your sick body would be a piece of cake. Another thing you would notice in the passage is that after the angel rolled away the stone, he sat on it. It appeared he was challenging the soldiers.

According to Revelation 3:7-8, when God opens the door to you, nobody can shut it. This means once God takes away an obstacle from your path, it is completely gone. Every problem the Lord has taken from your life shall never return in Jesus’ Name.

“And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified” (Matt 28:5). The women saw the angel and they were terrified. But he said, ‘Fear not, He has risen’. Those who seek God have nothing to fear. As long as you seek the King of kings, you have nothing to fear.

Why? What you should fear would fear you. Even the spirit of fear itself will be afraid of you. In John 16:33, Jesus says you should not fear because He has overcome the world. Whatever tribulation or hardship that may come your way has lost its power to harm or defeat you. In Revelation 1:17-18, Jesus says because He has risen and has recovered the keys of death and life, you should not fear.

You cannot die without His knowledge or permission. You cannot die before your time because He has set a date for that event, and He can extend it if He likes. No accidental death can take you off just like that. Jesus has the keys. No death or life except He opens the door. Don’t fear death. You will not die prematurely. You shall fulfil God’s plan for your life.

Rebuke the spirit of fear working in any area of your life, frustrate its plans and confess ‘Fear Not’ scriptures.

Seeking Gods guidance and Gods will in marriage

 
Memorise: “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered” (1 Pet 3:7)

Read: Matthew 1:18-25

In Matthew 1:18-20, Joseph who was betrothed to Mary and knew that he had never had carnal knowledge of her, paid her a visit and found her manifesting signs of pregnancy. He was shocked. How could Mary – his heart throb go and sleep with another man while they were in courtship? It was a big blow.According to the provisions of the Law of Moses recorded in Deuteronomy 22:23-24, she was supposed to be publicly disgraced and face the death penalty. But as hurt as he was, he was still protective. He did not want to take her through all that. He wanted to disengage quietly so that nobody would know he was not responsible for the pregnancy. One lesson here is that we should prayerfully think through crucial decisions. He did not rush. He took time to think out the best way of handling the situation. When your spouse has caused you shame, how do you respond? Would you disgrace her publicly so that she can learn the hard way?

Joseph was very protective of Mary even after he thought she was unfaithful to him. How protective are you over your wife? Do you absorb her weaknesses or you amplify them? In what ways have you tried to assist her in her weak areas? Or have you been using threats, complaints, beatings or intimidations on her?

Another lesson we can learn from Mary and Joseph in Matthew 1:18-25 is how God guides. Mary and Joseph both encountered angels. Mary was told of an unprecedented virgin conception and birth of the Saviour of the world. Joseph was given the name of the product of that conception. Who said God cannot guide a man and a woman on an issue such as marriage?

Are you single? If you seek God’s face in marriage, He will lead you to His choice. And vice versa. God can only guide you if you completely surrender to His leading. As long as you wish to have your way, He will hold back His choice. Even as a married couple, you can be led by God on the same issue. To what extent do you and your spouse yield to God’s guidance? Joseph was very pliable in God’s hands. He planned to leave Mary after he found her pregnant but immediately the angel gave him the true picture, he dropped his negative plan. How easy is it for God to correct you?

Being hurt is no excuse for meanness, but enough reason to return to God for healing. Ask God to heal your hurts.

 

Memorise: “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words” (Ecc 5:3)Read: Deuteronomy 13:1-5
“And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more” (Genesis 37:5). I have had quite a number of dreams – some small, some big. Since I was young, I have always dreamt of riding in a Rolls Royce someday. In 1980, I had a dream of a city whose inhabitants will be completely Christians. By His grace, that is already in the pipeline. Just as you have small and big dreams, so also you have medium-sized dreams. By the way, what is a dream?According to Job 33:14-15, it is a medium by which God communicates with man.It is sometimes called night vision. A dream usually comes when you are deep in sleep at night. There are different categories of dreams. Isaiah 29:8 says if a man is hungry or thirsty and falls asleep, he would dream that he is eating or drinking. I have repeatedly asked some people who come to me to say they were eating in their dreams, whether they had enough to eat during the day. This is because those in need could have need-based dreams. 

Another way a dream could come is in response to your thoughts. These are thought-based dreams. When you think or worry too much about something during the day, you are likely to dream about it at night. If you are always thinking of getting married, you will find yourself going to the altar in your dreams.

“For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words” (Ecclesiastes 5:3). You can dream about your day’s activities. Not all dreams emanate from God. Some are from the devil. Deuteronomy 13:1-5 says that any dream that might lead you away from God is not from God.

For instance, if you dream that you divorced your wife, that does not mean it is the right thing to do. It is simply from Satan and you must resist it with all you can muster. No dream from God will violate the written Word of God. Satan manipulates a lot in dreams. Many have been deceived into wrong decisions and actions through their dreams.

This is why you must be conversant with the Bible. Any dream that tells you to take a second wife or to divorce your legally married wife and go for the ‘right’ sister, is from the pit of hell. Reject it with your life or it will rock your foundation and what’s on it. Ask for God-given dreams.

Scrutinize every dream and determine the source, information and purpose so that you will know how to handle it.

Memorise: “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words” (Ecc 5:3)Read: Deuteronomy 13:1-5
“And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more” (Genesis 37:5). I have had quite a number of dreams – some small, some big.

Sermon: I need God’s help!

 
Memorise: “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Ps 127:1)Read: Mark 4:35-41
helpAfter the sons of the prophets convinced Elisha to go with them in 2 Kings 6:1-7, they got to the river and began to cut down trees. While doing so, a particular axe head fell into the river Jordan. These students were very worried because it was borrowed. One lesson from this is that the best of plans can go wrong. After putting in place what you may deem a fool-proof plan, and everything suggests a perfect design, something can still go wrong with its implementation.

Psalm 127:1 says, “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain”. Whether you believe it or not, sooner or later you would have to face a storm or two. Do not think that because you have given your life to Christ, there would be no more problems. In fact, that is when you would face problems.

Before you gave your life to Christ, you were in the same camp with the devil, and posed no threat to him. But the day you gave your life to Jesus Christ, you escaped from Satan’s camp. And he will surely attempt to have you back. But thank God the One now inside you is greater than the devil. If Jesus is in your boat and you call upon Him when the storm hits, it will never sink (Mk 4:35-41).

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee: and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee” (Is 43:2). If you observe carefully, this passage did not say ‘If’ you pass through fire but ‘when’. This means, at some stage in life you would have to go through fire. This world is not a bed of roses but if Jesus is by your side,

He will cause you to emerge as gold from your fire of affliction or trial. This was the experience of the trio in Nebuchadnezzar’s fire (Dan 3:19-30). Are you going through any fire of affliction, persecution or intense difficulty but you are sure Jesus is still in your boat? Be encouraged. You are coming out of that fire. Your latter state shall be greater than how you were before the fire. No fire can burn you. No river can swallow the ship where the Master of the ocean, earth and skies reigns!

You had a terrific plan on a project or business but something went wrong somewhere. The Lord will help you out as you yield to Him.

How to overcome the devil

Memorise: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” ( Lk 10:19)Read: Titus 2:11-12
As a believer, you are recreated in Christ. The victory on the cross of calvary has fully absolved you of defeat. This means, you should go through life’s battles as a conqueror not a victim. Luke 10:19 says, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”.Every believer in Christ is empowered over satanic forces.

However, it is still possible to remain under Satan’s manipulation due to lack of knowledge or refusal to exercise one’s authority. In Genesis 1:26-27, God created man to dominate. Adam lost this to Satan when he chose to live without God’s control. But through Jesus Christ, we are fully restored to dominate.

Today, God expects you to be a moving symbol of power and authority. When the Godhead resides in you, you become an embodiment of power. That is when signs and wonders will freely flow through you from the power base within you (Mark 16:17-18).

God expects you to exercise His power in your life over sin, Satan and his cohorts, situations, circumstances and challenges that confront you. Any bonafide believer who does this cannot be enslaved to enemies. How are you exercising your dominion today?

One way to exercise your dominion is on your knees. Daniel was faced with death yet he knelt down and prayed. On his knees, power was released to frustrate the plans of his enemies (Dan 6:10). If you can kneel before God, you will stand tall among men. You will rule the world. It is on your knees God expects you to rename problems or challenges confronting you. You cannot effect any change if all you do is dash in and out of God’s presence.

Spend quality time praying. Combine your prayers with fasting. Another secret of dominion is purity of life. If you fast and pray but live like the devil, you cannot release your controlling power over man, Satan and circumstances. Purity is a very powerful weapon. In Daniel 6:4 , his examiners found him faultless. God expects you to live soberly, righteously and godly in your life time.

Find out what God says about you, what those around you say about you and compare with what you say about yourself (2 Cor 13:5). Also regularly feed on God’s Word. Grow your faith. Are you ready to dominate from today?

Ask God for grace to dominate Satan, demons, the flesh, and the world.

Prayers to recover stolen blessings and lost glory

 
Memorise: “After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward” (Gen 15:1)Read: 2 Kings 5:2-4
blessings“After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward” (Gen 15:1). All the power you will ever need is contained in one Name – Jesus, according to Matthew 3:11.

Anyone who really desires to get to Heaven must be acquainted with that Name because He is the only road to the Heavenly planet. That Name can satisfy every need. I discovered a long time ago that if you stop desiring and pursuing things and start to desire and pant after God, you will have everything.

Once you have Jesus, you have everything. A rich man once asked his son to choose one of his property while the rest will go to his faithful slave. The boy was confused on what to take. Fortunately, he met an old man who advised him to choose the slave since he was also part of the rich man’s assets.

The property of the slave belongs to the slave owner. The slave owner automatically controls the slave and all he has. All you need is Jesus. He is all I want. If you have Jesus, you have everything.

In Naaman’s house was a slave girl who was brought from Israel. She became a slave not by choice but by reason of Israel’s inability to protect its citizens against Syrian forces. A leader who fails to provide adequate spiritual cover over his flock would lose them to invading forces. Even after the raid and the young girl was captured, her parents must have reported to the king of Israel, but he did nothing about it. Never be nonchalant over any loss because no loss is totally irrecoverable until Heaven says so.

Make an effort to recover any good thing you have lost. Compared with some fellow Israelites who were captured and taken away to Babylon as slaves in Psalm 137:1-4, this slave girl towered in strength, fortitude and grace. Her counterparts in Babylon were musicians who were captured with their musical instruments but could never recover from that blow. They wept and wept. The request of their captors for them to sing the songs of Zion was turned down.

This was an opportunity to tell them of the God of Israel but they were too blinded to see it, and they lost that opportunity. But this slave girl was not asked but she saw the need and spoke about the power of the God of the Hebrews. Are you too carried away by negative circumstances that you fail to see your opportunities?

Singing songs of freedom in the land of captivity sets you free. Any treasure lost but uncovered, becomes foundation for subsequent losses. Allow no loss!

How to overcome greed

 
Memorise: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Tim 6:10)Read: 1 Timothy 6:9-10
Without a bait, the hunter’s trap may not catch its target. A bait is very attractive and almost irresistible. For thousands of years, Satan has used certain baits to get many believers into his traps. Let us examine some of them. The first is the love of money. 1 Timothy 6:9-10 says this is the root of all evil. Virtually every evil on earth can be traced to the love of money.The love of money has separated good friends, whole families, churches, etc. It is good to listen to messages on prosperity because God wants you to prosper. But you should know also that God has His path to prosperity. Prosperity by all means or get-rich-quick syndrome are from Satan.

Anyone who tells you to do something which you cannot disclose to your spouse or anybody is definitely not clean. Ignore the fellow. If you make money the underlying consideration for virtually all you do, you would become a victim of Satan’s snare.When money is your main motivation in ministry, you are gone. The love of money is fast eroding voluntary Christian work in church. Believers now want to be paid for rendering regular departmental services. If earth pays you for such services, then be prepared to be without any reward from Heaven. You have to redefine your relationship with money.

Closely allied with the love of money is greed. This has caused great havoc in human relationship. A brother into estate business could not get patronage for a while. He had a particular property but none to hire it. One day, a fellow brother – a policemen linked him with a relative who needed the apartment, and agreed to take it. The brother was glad.

When this police brother was told the rent, he saw it as an opportunity to make a fortune from his relative. He highly inflated the rent and was already calculating what he was going to do with his lion share. After all, his relative was very wealthy and could afford it. But when the amount involved was prohibitive, the would-be client turned it down and that was the end of that business. Both parties lost out to greed! Greed has denied many contractors several businesses and opportunities. Is greed operating in your life?

Repent and put Jesus first. Greed will yet hinder the breakthrough of many. Don’t be its victim!

Let every root of greed in my life be destroyed in Jesus’ Name.

Counselling tips on premarital sex and relationships

Memorise: “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Heb 13:4)Read: Matthew 1:17-19
counsellingThe genealogy listed here included even those who were carried away in exile into Babylon and those born in the land of captivity. The fact that they were in captivity did not exempt them from this list.This means that all achievements and accomplishments for God’s Kingdom during captivity – wilderness period are noted by Heaven and remain relevant as far as God is concerned.

You should never be tired or discouraged during your trying moments. You will not lose your reward. Infact, service in the most difficult times attracts greater rewards for the believer.

Although not too much is said about Joseph in the Bible, this passage tells us one or two things about him. He was a morally upright and God fearing man. He was betrothed to Mary yet he never defiled their bed. Unfortunately, many would- be couples today have taken their consent to marry as an excuse to fornicate or engage in sex before marriage.

Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge”. The moment you engage in premarital sex before or during courtship with the one you want to marry, it erodes honour in your marriage. You cannot eat your cake and have it! You cannot defile your bed and retain the honour God has prepared to envelope you and your spouse.

Do you know that if Joseph had forced his way into sleeping with Mary before their marriage, she would never have been the mother of Jesus? But because they kept their bed, God decided to honour them by asking His only begotten Son to come through that couple. Do you know that God still rewards couples who keep to God’s Word and ensure their bed is undefiled? You can be like Mary and Joseph.

Keep yourself pure. Your body is not for fornication. You abuse your body when you fornicate. Your body was never designed to be used for fornication. Stop abusing your body through illicit sex, lustful exploits in nudity and pornography! Stop engaging your mind in polluted thoughts! Keep your heart pure.

The choice you make today determines the events of tomorrow. Watch your choices.

Bible study on: I am the Alpha and Omega

Memorise: “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer” (Ps 45:1)Read: Psalm 45:1-2
alphaJesus is the Alpha and Omega. He is the letters A and Z. He is in control of letters. No wonder He chooses His words whenever He speaks and none of them is powerless. Another implication of Jesus as the Alpha and the Omega is that, He is the Greatest Writer and Author. No wonder His book – the Bible remains the greatest best-seller all through the ages. It is a combination of prose, poetry, poems, historical accounts, future events, and the plan of God for the ages written in a most interesting way. A super book with 66 separate books, yet it has the same general theme – Jesus.

This therefore gives writers hope. Are you a Christian writer battling with ideas? Go to the Alpha and Omega. He can give you the ideas to do several books in your lifetime. Whenever you are running out of ideas, go to the Alpha and Omega, worship the One in control of all written works and thank Him for fresh ideas.

Your writer’s block will give way to a fresh flow. He is the writer’s resource. This is also the hope of everyone doing a project or thesis. As long as it has to do with letters, He will help you out.

“My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer” (Ps 45:1). Some writers are ready to write while others have nothing to write. Grace differentiates them.. When under the influence of the Alpha and Omega, there is a flow because grace is released.

Some students of higher institutions have completed the course work of their programmes particularly post graduate programmes, but either have not started or have gotten stuck with their projects. Continuing has been a struggle. A change is coming your way now. There is a user of this Devotional who got stuck on a project. Grace is released to you now.

Will God solve all my problems and troubles?

 
Memorise: “I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies” (Ps 18:3)Read: Matthew 15:21-28
problemWhen the borrowed axe head dropped into river Jordan while the sons of the prophets were felling trees, the one holding it screamed: “Alas, Master! For it was borrowed” (2 Kings 6:5). The young man cried out in desperation. Many believers in the civilized world approach prayer time as gentlemen and ladies. If you are really in need, it will show in the way you open your mouth loud to God.

This young man did not pretend. Some cannot cry out for fear of offending their neighbour. They do not want to be branded a ruffian in church. Bartimaeus – the erstwhile blind fellow cried to the Lord in a way that he could not be ignored.

In Psalm 50:15, God says, “And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me”. Although God gave us the right to call on Him, He knows which calls He answers. Some calls come and God says, ‘This fellow is just joking’. Some calls come and He says, ‘This fellow does not know what he wants’. Some calls come and God says, ‘This fellow is not yet under pressure by the problem. He can wait’. But there are some calls that come and the Lord says, ‘Angel so and so, go and attend to this my son. The matter must be very urgent’. That is why the desperate gets going in the things of the Kingdom.

When the young man said ‘Alas, Master’, he was transferring the problem to his master. One British tabloid asked me why there are so many miracles taking place in Africa while they hardly see any in Britain. I told them in Britain, they have good doctors, a planned economy, welfare package and fine hospitals equipped with drugs. But in Africa these are either not available or are in short supply. So the sick in Britain have hope to some extent in their health system. But in Africa, with no faith in the system, the only hope for survival is Jesus. When you realize that except Jesus heals you, you are bound to die, you will pray like the young man in 2 Kings 6:5 Nobody will beg you to have faith. How do you call on God today?

Is your call a ‘Hello’ or an ‘SOS’ call? Before the Court of Heaven, it pays to be desperate. How desperate are you? Open your mouth and call on Him today. If you study your Bible closely, you would notice that was the last time Jesus passed by Jericho. If blind Bartimaeus had closed his mouth, he would have remained blind forever. Be desperate today!

Send an SOS (Save Our Soul) to the Throne of Grace on that pressing issue today.

How to overcome trials and tribulations as a Christian?

 
Memorise: “How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?” (Ps 137:4)Read: Psalm 137:1-4
trialsHow shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?” (Psalm 137:4 ). When some Israeli captives were brought to Babylon, they were very upset. Some were talented musicians whom God could have used in reaching out to the Babylonians, but they were so depressed that they locked up their talents. They did not know God allowed them to go into captivity to fulfil His divine purpose. They stood in God’s way.

Eventually, God had to look up to Daniel, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego – who were also captives in Babylon to declare Him in the whole land. And they did it so well that the Name of their God was revered in the whole empire. Infact, a decree was made that anyone who slandered the God of the Hebrews in any way, would die and their families rendered homeless (Dan 3).

God is keenly interested in how you serve Him when in captivity. It is easy to serve God when all is well, but service during a siege or captivity makes more meaning to His Highest Majesty. Today, you may not be taken as a physical slave: But you could be in captivity of barrenness, poverty, dryness, unanswered prayers, stagnancy, failure, ill-health, etc.

You could be allowed to go through a trial of faith situation which might keep you out of job for some years or months. You, once your own boss, might have to subordinate yourself to somebody far junior to you in ministry or secular work. In such a situation, what is your attitude to God? Do you down tools like the Israeli musicians or take that as an opportunity to faithfully stand for your God? Naaman’s slave girl declared the power of her God in Syria. When you find yourself in another country, do you hide your faith in Christ? Remember Joseph was also a slave in Egypt but he resolved to prove His God to the Egyptians through his conduct.

How you respond to God, His work and His people during a siege will determine quite a lot of things affecting both now and particularly the future. Have you allowed discouragement or depression to set in because of that stagnant situation? Come out of it! Take up your tools and serve God more. What you do for God this period goes into the records. Set a good record today!

Service during captivity attracts a greater reward than service in time of freedom.

Sermon on the power of vision and godly dreams

Memorise: “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry” (Hab 2:3)

Read: Isaiah 43:10-13

Dreams can be a very strong motivating force that can see you through the difficulties of life. Never give up your dream. Has God shown you or promised you that it shall be well with you? Believe it and stick with it. It will surely come to pass. “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry” (Habakkuk 2:3).Your dream will surely speak – that is, it shall materialize. But always remember God has an appointed time for the dream to manifest. You shall not die before the time of manifestation. Are you poor but God has told or shown you that you shall be rich? Hold on to it. It shall be fulfilled at God’s appointed time.

One thing God is interested in which will also determine the outcome of a dream in your life, is how you respond to dreams. What is your response to dreams? People react differently to dreams. Never fight against a God-given dream. Isaiah 43:13 says nobody can hinder God when He has made up His mind on an issue. In the Name of Jesus, the good plans God has for you and your family shall not be hindered.

Isaiah 45:9 says judgement is upon the one who fights against his Maker. Stop struggling with God. Those who fight against God’s dream always end up as victims of the dream (2 Kings 7:1-2). Also, never ignore your God-given dream. This is because, God does not like nonchalant, lukewarm or neutral people (Rev 3:15-18). According to 2 Kings 2:6-15, those who are neutral or stand on the fence concerning salient Kingdom matters, end up as servants.

Get committed. It takes commitment to reach the top or to reach your goal. It will amaze you that those who would fight your dream may be those you never expect. If you are not committed to that dream, and they hit you below the belt, you may see yourself giving up on your dream.

Every dream has its time of fulfilment. If your brother’s dream has come to pass, rejoice with him and look forward to your time. If you do not give up on your dream, your dream will not give up on you. Neither will God. Pray regularly on your dreams and offer God thanksgiving. Research to see what Bible characters did to provoke fulfilment of their dreams.

Be instrumental in causing the dreams of others to materialize and yours will materialize too!

Prayers to overcome obstacles and problems

 

Genesis 1 

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty,darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.”And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Is there darkness in your life? Is there voidness in your situations?Does your life seem empty and formless as the earth was in the begining.

God spoke a word to the earth, you can also prophesised the word of God into your situations.

That same Spirit of God that hovered the formless and empty earth is still around.

As you invoke the power of the Holy Ghost, His power shall intervene and change in your situations in Jesus name. Listen to this audio sermon titledLet their be Light in my darkness!

2 Chronicles 20 vs 20 : Believe the prophet and you shall prosper

 
Memorise: “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7 )Read: Isaiah 55:8-11
One major key to recovery is divine pronouncement. Never trivialize God’s Word. Any time God speaks, take it seriously. Even when God speaks through His ministers, do not take it for granted. One reason the Word of God fails to accomplish its purpose in our lives or situation is because we are either too familiar with the Word or the vessel through which the Word came.Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the LORD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets”.

This is true. Do you know that the various events taking place in the lives of people, communities and nations are first revealed to God’s confidants? Somebody somewhere is informed of what is about to happen in your life, family or church. The issue is: does God trust you enough to confide in you? A particular brother occupied a very sensitive position in the army. His bosses hated his guts and included his name among those short-listed for retirement.

Even after he knew of their plan, he was not shaken. One day he came into God’s presence and before he could even settle down, the Lord said those who were planning to retire him would leave and his promotion would be accelerated. It happened just like that. Those who planned to retire him forgot to effect his retirement. Later, they were retired but he was promoted to become the boss. This year, anyone planning your sack shall lose his or her seat to you in Jesus’ Name.

God’s Word is powerful. A young sister trusting God for visa to America attended a meeting one day, and as the Lord led me, I said the person who wanted a visa to America had already got it. She rejoiced and held onto the pronouncement. Later when she appeared before the visa officer at the Embassy, the lady there told her there was no visa for her. But she protested saying her father had already assured her of her visa.

The woman asked, ‘Who is your father?’ ‘Adeboye’, she replied. ‘But Adeboye is not written on any of your documents’, the visa officer quizzed. ‘Oh, ma, Adeboye is the father of my father’, she insisted. Suddenly, the visa officer took interest in the way the young sister spoke and gave her the visa. What has been denied you? In the Name of Jesus, it shall be granted to you this season. Are you trusting God for visa to a country of your choice where you plan to do God’s pleasure? That door is opened to you now in Jesus’ Name. Every Word of God spoken into your life shall come to pass. Never joke with a divine pronouncement!

Father, establish every good pronouncement made on me and my family today.

How to interprete prophetic dreams and visions

 
Memorise: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him” (Dan. 2:22 )Read: Genesis 41:25-44
According to Judges 7:9-14, the dream that could give you what you lack in order to obtain your victory, could be given to someone else – even your enemy! Pray that you will not lose it. Every dream that you will need to complete your assignment that is in the hands of others, will reach you this season in Jesus’ Name. God could also use another man’s dream to promote you.In Daniel 2:1-45, Daniel and his friends were asleep at home when the king had a dream in his palace and forgot it.

The king woke from sleep and knew he had had a revelational dream – one that was meaningful and bound to happen. He forgot it because God wanted to use it to elevate His own.This year, the dream that will pave way for an unusual appointment, promotion and enlargement for you shall connect with you in Jesus’ Name. The dreams of others will work for your progress and establishment.

On the other hand, it is a very dangerous thing to forget your dreams. Some people hardly remember any of their dreams. Such people are under a siege. The devil wants to keep you away from divine communication. If that explains your situation, cry to the Lord to deliver you today. The Lord will set you free from any satanic siege over your dream life in Jesus’ Name.

Do not forget your childhood dreams also because you never can tell where God is taking you. Similarly, in Genesis 40:1-19 and Genesis 41:1-44, Joseph interpreted the dreams of two of Pharaoh’s servants and two years later, Pharaoh dreamt and God used it to lift Joseph from the prison to the throne.

Dreams can inter-connect. Joseph had a dream of greatness from childhood. But he was waiting for secondary dreams to help him fulfil his dream. In the prison, two dreams came: Unknown to him, they were to link with the final dream from Pharaoh that helped him to achieve his long awaited dream.

God will connect your dream with others that will help you fulfil them in Jesus’ Name. Every life-changing dream you have forgotten shall be remembered.

Father, use the dreams of others to cause the dream of my life to materialize just like You did Joseph’s

How to ensure Gods presence in our lives

Memorise: “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid , neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9)Read: Exodus 3:10-12
God's presenceIn 2 Kings 6:1-7, students of the prophetic school met Elisha to take permission before erecting a bigger school. We must discuss all our plans with God before any action is taken. Also, after their discussion with Elisha, he permitted them. This shows that God is interested in expansion. The Almighty God wants it to be well with you. God does not benefit from your sorrow, poverty or pain.

Infact, if you remain poor, it may be difficult for you to win souls to Christ. They may question why your God cannot take care of you. According to the story, one of the sons of the prophets who was very smart was not contented with obtaining permission but further asked Elisha to come with them. And he obliged.

This year, do not go anywhere unless God is prepared to follow you. Today, one reason many believers are going round in circles is because they fail to involve God in their daily activities. They limit God to a secondary role – nothing more. But if you could ask Moses, he would tell you that the secret of success is the divine presence.

In today’s reading, God assured Moses of His presence in an assignment. In Joshua 1:9, God told Joshua, “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid , neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest”. As long as God is with you, you are bound to prosper.

According to Acts 10:38, the secret of the success of Jesus Christ while on earth was God’s abiding presence. This year, the Lord will be with you. Also, we see that true to his promise, Elisha followed them. This reminds us that God is not a liar. When He makes promises, He keeps them (Num 23:19). The ability to keep promises falls in the realm of integrity. Today, many do not know what integrity is. They say one thing but do something entirely different.

Many men of God have lost their integrity. If you cannot keep to your word, your position, anointing and eternity are all mortgaged. Every lie a servant of God tells makes him to misrepresent God. I do not know of a lying God but only of the father of all liars – Satan. If you lie as a leader, you are headed for eternal hell, your ecclesiastical position notwithstanding.

Watch your tongue! Don’t promise what your power cannot perform. Pray that God will be with the President and Vice President of this nation and that they will serve the people in righteousness, equity and justice.

Understanding the power in the name of Jesus Christ

 
Memorise: “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name ” (Phil 2:9)Read: Matthew 1:18-21
jesusIn life, there are powerful words that can make or mar an individual, family, church, community or even nation. Never underestimate the power of a havoc word. Satan and his cohorts have ruined the lives of millions by this. On the other hand, God uses the miracle word to reverse any evil the devil had done.In the Name of Jesus, I command every word sent to cause havoc in your life to lose its power. A brother was involved in a fatal accident. He was left in a coma. The only reason he was not taken for dead and buried was because he breathed occasionally. Each time he took a breath, he called one word that can reverse his situation – Jesus.

On the seventh day, that miracle Name finally reversed his situation and he lived. The Name Jesus will work for you this year. In an estate containing 15 houses, a fire broke out one day. It progressed from one house to the next. It was meant to engulf all the houses in the estate. One of the houses was owned by a believer in Christ. As she prayerfully resisted what appeared inevitable, she simply engaged one word – Jesus, with her mouth. Her house was the eighth on the row.

Fire engulfed the first seven houses, jumped over the eighth and burnt the ninth and the rest. Fourteen houses were lost to one havoc word Fire yet one was saved by the word Jesus. Matthew 1:21 says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”. Quite a lot of things are loaded into the Name Jesus. Your salvation from sin, Satan, self and the world is in that Name.

It is the only authentic, Heaven-certified, earth and hell recognized name capable of salvaging any mess. Are you in a mess and it seems there is no way out? Call that Name Jesus. You will find a way emerging. That name contains all medications that sicknesses require to flee.

Also, according to Acts 10:38, the Name can nullify oppression of any sort. Jesus is also the Name for victory. If you call that Name, defeat will give way to victory. This year, as you call that Name in faith, it will work wonders in your life and circumstances.

When in danger or trouble, shout the Name – Jesus.

Prayers to kill and crucify the flesh

 
Memorise: “Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence” (Ps 91:3)Read: Psalm 91:1-8
The eagle takes the highest flight route hence it is very difficult to catch, unlike other birds. It takes an exceptional hunter to catch an eagle. Anyone who rides on eagles’ wings will not be an easy catch for the fowler. Psalm 91:3 says, “Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence”.This year, the Lord will frustrate every evil hunter sent against you in Jesus’ Name. Under normal circumstances, a divine eaglet who is born of God, sanctified and baptized in the Holy Spirit should not require deliverance because demons and the devil are under his feet.

However, for one reason or the other either due to carelessness or on divine permission as in a trial of faith, an eagle can be caught by the snares of the hunter.The fowler is good at setting traps for anybody to fall into. In those days in the village, we could virtually catch just any animal of our desire. We would set traps in places animals may never suspect danger awaited them. Besides the trap, the skilled fowler prepares a bait ahead of the trap. At such a time, the eaglet requires the Almighty God to intervene or else it will be caught.

A trap without a bait may not perform its purpose. A bait is something which looks good, great, very attractive and almost irresistible to the potential hunter’s victim. If you want someone to steal but you do not position him where he will access money, he may never steal. A thief will only steal when there is something to steal. As long as there is nothing to steal, there will be no thief.

Quite a number of people condemning public servants who stole during their tenor are playing saints today because they never had the opportunity to steal. You would be surprised if given the same opportunity, they would do far worse. If some people are in positions of power, they would abuse that office in a far greater way. Are you a victim of satanic booby traps? The Lord will deliver you today. Check your life. What are you doing wrong?

In which area(s) have you been disobedient to God? What is that bait luring you into sin? Separate from it today! Ask the Lord to help you mortify your members. You need to die to your flesh. As long as your flesh is alive and well, it will keep luring you to evil.

Pray these Pauline prayers asking God to generate progressive Christian growth in you using Ephesians 1:16-21; 3:16-19; and Colossians 1:9-12

Bible scriptures on dreams” Are dreams real and true?

 
Memorise: “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thess 5:21)Read: Genesis 37:23-24
There are basic reasons for dreams. There are secondary dreams which are given to others which are meant to help you. However, there is an ultimate purpose for dreams: It is to keep you going especially in hard times when everything looks bleak, and you are not sure of what may happen. If you have a dream that you look forward to, it will prevent you from giving up or even committing suicide in the face of hardship.There are some revelational dreams or childhood dreams that may not be fulfilled in the next 10, 20, 30, or more years: It doesn’t matter. As long as you are sure it is from the Lord, hold on to it. It shall connect with other dreams and eventually materialize. In this sense, dreams are very powerful motivators.

Any dream God has given for your life is worth dying for. Never let it slip through your finger!If you look at the life of Joseph, you will observe that he was greatly motivated by his childhood dream. And he stuck to it throughout his travails until it came to pass. Never allow anything or anyone to separate you from your Heaven-sent dream. Once you give up the dream of your life, you may have nothing else to live for. When Joseph was thrown into a pit in Genesis 37:23-24, he knew he would not die. If he died, how would his dream of his brothers bowing to him be fulfilled?

When he was sold into slavery far away from his place of birth, he knew his dream would come to pass. In Genesis 40:14-15, when Joseph asked the butler to remember him, he was actually saying he knew he was not going to die in prison because his dream had spoken good concerning his future. If there was one person who stuck to his dream, it was Joseph. Another person who held unto his dream was Paul.

In Acts 23:11, the Lord told him he would testify of Him in Rome. He went through several problems and formidable hindrances yet he held on fast to what the Lord told him. He knew when they suffered a shipwreck and everyone’s life was in danger that he would outlive it. Has God made you a promise?

Has God given you a dream? Hold fast to it. It shall come to pass. You will not die before the realization of your dream. Hence, like Joseph, cut off anything that can separate you from the One who will fulfil that dream.

Your life’s dream is a powerful weapon against death, discouragement and the devil: Use it well!

Sermon on God as the alpha and omega

 
Memorise: “I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation” (Ps 119:99)Read: Psalm 119:97-104
alphaJesus is the Alpha and Omega (Rev 1:8). As a result of this, He has control over any written work. Being the letters A and Z, He has absolute control over every alphabet. It is when He empowers words formed by alphabets that they become what they were meant to be. Also, being in control of alphabets, He can decide to give an illiterate person the knowledge of alphabets and the fellow will write or communicate sensibly using letters or alphabets.There are testimonies of believers without knowledge of the English language, who sought the help of the Alpha and Omega and began to read and understand their English Bibles. One of my daughters went on a missionary trip sometime ago. She got to this distant village and wanted to share the love of Jesus with them but could not speak the language. She felt stuck. How could language be a barrier to the Gospel of Jesus Christ?Suddenly, the Alpha and Omega gave her the understanding and utterance and she spoke the language of the natives fluently, leading several of them to Christ through it.

In Acts 2:1-13, when the Holy Ghost came at Pentecost, the Alpha and Omega gave the believers the power of alphabets in languages they never learnt and they began to speak languages of other nations. If you have been baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, the Alpha and Omega has performed part of His work in you. But it doesn’t end there.

Being in control of alphabets also means He is in control of all knowledge. He can turn a dullard into a most brilliant person. He can make the intelligent more knowledgeable than his teachers (Ps 119:99). To benefit from such divine gifts from the Alpha and Omega, be born again and receive Him into your heart. Meditate regularly on His Word and practice it. Be a doer of the Word of God.

Take time to worship Him regularly as the Alpha and Omega – the One who is in control of all knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Regularly relate with Him by the name or title you want Him to reveal Himself to you by. Then ask Him to manifest Himself to you as the Alpha and Omega.

When last did you worship Jesus as the Alpha and Omega? Spend 30 minutes doing so now!

How could a rich man enter heaven?

 
Memorise: “A gift is a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth” (Prov 17:8)

Read: Matthew 27:57-60

In Luke 8:1-3 and John 19:13-40, you would find that some rich men and women teamed up to finance the ministry of Jesus Christ. They employed their wealth, power, position and influence to ensure that none of Jesus’ evangelistic programmes failed. Has God blessed you financially or materially? What are you doing with your wealth? The wealth you spend outside the Kingdom of God has no meaning. You can give meaning to what you have. You can support the ministry of your pastor. Do not wait to be told of his need. Prayerfully find out and meet the need. Are you saying you do not have money to support the ministry of Jesus? You may have something else. Take a look at yourself: what’s in your hand? You could be intellectually rich – use it for God’s Kingdom. Are you very social – you easily mix with people and make friends? Use it to the benefit of God’s Kingdom.

Are you rich in marketing strategies? Use it to market the faith of Jesus Christ to your clients. Nobody is poor altogether. There is at least one area God has endowed you. Discover it and use it to benefit God’s people. Are you energetic and very healthy? What wealth can be greater than good health? Use it to work for God. You are part of the rich that must support the ministry of Jesus. Heaven counts on you. Do not fail God.

Moreover, if you fail to use your wealth for God, be informed He always has a substitute somewhere. Usually, God’s substitutes are better equipped to replace the displaced. 1 Samuel 16:1 says David was the substitute for king Saul. Your substitute is waiting to replace you. If you fail to use God’s resources as instructed, they will gradually drift towards your replacement.

You shall not be replaced in Jesus’ Name. Between 1975 and 1977 at the Ebute Metta Headquarters of our church, we had just five cars, and my fairly used car was the newest. At some point, a very wealthy man joined the church. He had about 57 cars in his company. One day, he brought the latest public address system to the church. We were all excited but God said, ‘Tell him to take away his gift’. He was disappointed because he knew that the rejection of his gift also meant the rejection of his person. And he was right. If God accepts anything you give to Him, it is only a privilege!

Pray for your pastor and his family and minister to their material or financial needs.

How to overcome lusts of the eyes and the flesh

Memorise: “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father” (Gal 1:4)Read: 2 Chronicles 20:1-2
In Exodus 8:1, the Lord asked Moses to tell Pharaoh ‘Let my people go’. This is a command and commands must be obeyed. This command borders on deliverance. When you talk about deliverance, there are some brethren who are non-challant to it. They will say it does not concern them because they are not in bondage. They fail to recognize that there are levels of bondages.There are some who are bound like the demoniac of Mark 5:1-15. There are those who are not bound but are imprisoned. These, unlike those that are bound are free to move about but their freedom is highly restricted by walls or gates. In 2 Kings 6:24-29, we see another type of bondage in the city of Samaria. Their hands and feet were not chained, but the enemies besieged them to the extent that some began to eat their children. Many who think they are free are actually in one prison or the other.A woman took the picture of her husband to a herbalist and he tucked it into a charm container. Whenever the container was opened, her husband would be absolutely normal and be a good husband, but the moment he began to take charge of the home as the head, the woman would immediately notify the herbalist and the lid of the container would be shut.

As soon as this was done, the man would lose his sanity. Some people are free, yet they have a ‘but’ in their lives. 2 Kings 5:1 talks of Naaman who had everything but was a leper. The ‘but’ in his life made nonsense of all his wonderful credentials. There are those who are free but the enemies have gathered together to launch an offensive against them like it happened to king Jehoshaphat (2 Chron 20:1-2).

On the other hand, some people who claim to be free are their own enemy. That means their enemy is not outside but within. Samson overcame his external enemies but almost died of thirst – an internal enemy (Judges 15:18). Some people need to be delivered from themselves – their flesh.

A brother once confessed that anytime he was about to have a breakthrough, something would push him into adultery and he would lose the breakthrough. He realized his problem lay within. Are you in such a fix? The Lord is setting you free today. Every overriding control the flesh has over you is broken today. Check yourself and locate any area in which you have remained bound and call upon the Lord in sincerity, faith and persistence. You will be free.

Victory over internal enemies is the platform you need to overcome all external enemies. Ask God for this victory today.

Warfare prayers: My Red sea must part!

 
Memorise: “Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;” (Ps 114:7)Read: Psalm 114:1-8
red seaIn Exodus 14:13-22 the Israelites had left Egypt and got to the bank of the Red Sea. They were about to settle down for a picnic when they heard the sound of the Egyptian army coming right behind them. Then the Lord asked Moses to stretch his rod over the sea. When he did, an east wind began to blow until it parted the sea into two and created a path in-between. That wind was none other than the Holy Spirit.

Today’s reading says when the wind began to blow, the sea saw it and fled. Why? The sea recognised the presence of the Holy Spirit and had no choice than to bow to its Maker. Whenever the wind blows, power is released. In Acts 2:1-4, on the day of Pentecost, the wind blew and the power of the Most High was released, and the Red Sea of language uniformity was divided and a path was created in its midst for men and women to speak the languages they never learnt.

Also, in Genesis chapter one, after the earth turned into a colossal mess, the wind blew over the waters, parted the Red Sea of chaos, and paved a way for order and restoration. Are you at the shore of the Red Sea of delay, poverty, stagnancy, or retrogression? The wind of the Spirit will blow over you, part your Red Sea and create a path for you this season.

After the children of Israel saw the Red Sea part before their eyes, they refused to move because the waters had become walls, on the right hand and on the left. One lesson here is that when God parts your Red Sea or problem, He uses the same problem to form your protection or defence. Do you know those who are fighting your promotion are the same people God will use to secure you from intruders after He has promoted you?

This simply means that even your enemies could turn out to be your helpers when the wind of the Spirit blows. Ask the wind of the Holy Spirit to blow over that nagging problem today. When problems see this wind, they will have no option than to flee. In the Name of Jesus Christ, every Red Sea before you will see the wind of the Holy Spirit and flee for good. It shall be well with you.

Father, as You part my Red Sea this season, cause those who fought against my progress to also fight for my progress.

Biblical interpretation of dreams

 
Memorise: “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;” (Job 33:15)Read: Judges 7:9-14
God has a purpose for every dream He gives. There are basic, secondary and ultimate reasons for dreams. The basic reasons for dreams could be to tell you what is about to happen according to Genesis 37:5-10. Also, it could be to warn His people of danger ahead. This was the case with king Abimelech in Genesis 20:1-18 . In Daniel 4:4-27, God gave king Nebuchadnezzar a dream of what was going to happen in the future so that he could repent.Unfortunately, God’s purpose for giving certain dreams may be frustrated. Why? Because recipients hardly take them serious. Or never believe at all in dreams. Some do not even seek for clarity of coded dreams. How have you been handling your dreams? Another basic reason for dreams could be to communicate with those who cannot hear God audibly. It is not everybody who can hear and recognize God’s voice. Not even all God’s servants.God uses dreams to communicate with a number of His prophets whereas He spoke face to face with Moses (Num 12:5-8). If you are yet to recognize God’s voice, carefully watch your dream life. Also, if God has to wait until night to pass a message across to you, you still have a long way to go. Grow up and climb the spiritual ladder higher.

Secondary dreams are dreams God gives to other people which may be of benefit to you. Sometimes, it is not the dream you had but the one somebody else had, that God could use to encourage and strengthen you in the battle of life. In Judges 7:9-14, God gave Gideon an assignment which he thought was impossible to accomplish.

Then the Lord sent him on a spy mission just to hear the dream of one of the enemies and its interpretation. That put fire in his bones and he rose to fight them. The dream that will help you to be victorious over your fears, difficulties and doubts could well be given to your neighbor. This is one reason you should treat everyone with care, love and understanding or else they could hijack dream you need to move on. Ask God to grant you understanding of your dreams.

Thank God for speaking to you through dreams. Ask for grace for accurate interpretation of dreams.

Bible commentary on Jesus as the advocate of sinners

 
Memorise: “And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Rom 8:27)Read: Romans 8:26-27
advocateOne of the titles of Jesus is The Advocate. When a case is brought before a court of law, if the lawyer of the accused is not able to present a powerful defence for his client, the accused will retrogress and become a convict. During such a case, the complainant and the accused are hardly given a chance to defend themselves. What will be recorded in their favour will depend on what their lawyers present before the judge.Usually, you may be ignorant of or unable to influence the case against your life in the spiritual realm but the Advocate knows and He can do a good job. You know, He is far more experienced than the devil who stands to oppose you. He is wiser than the Accuser of the brethren, after all, He created him. He knows how to flaw the devil in any argument concerning your life.Yet for the Advocate to effectively perform His role, you must be born again, walk in obedience to all His commands and be yielded to Him. You must completely open up to Him. No secrets. Whether you tell Him or not, He already knows anyway, yet you must confide in Him.

For the Advocate to powerfully present your case, He would want to know how much of God’s Word you know. That is why you must create time to study, memorize and meditate on His Word. If you claim to be too busy to do this, it may affect the work of your Advocate.

You will always create time for what is important to you. In addition, you must be able to pray effectively on the issue your Advocate is presenting before God’s court. We as mortals are limited in our ability to do this, hence you must link up with the ally of your Advocate – the Holy Spirit. He knows your weaknesses and exactly how to fill the gap. As you pray in the spirit, He supplies all the Advocate needs in Heaven, and you will be on the way to winning your case.

Every case against you and your family, be it physical or spiritual, is cancelled today in Jesus’ Name. The Advocate will back you up and God the Father will grant every good desire of your heart this year. What is your relationship with the Advocate?

Thank God for your Advocate. Ask for grace to satisfy all His requirements so that He can win all your cases which He presents to God.

Sermon on how to win business contracts

 
Memorise: “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Prov 3:6)Read: 2 Kings 6:1-7
contractThere are good problems and there are bad problems. Our God has solution to all problems. For instance, while dealing with the problem of stagnancy, He continues to take the fellow from glory to glory. He will lift you where no human hands can, because His arms are the everlasting arms.Hence, if you are a bonafide believer, the sky is not your limit because that is too close a distance for God. To have an understanding of how long His hands are, just check the scriptures. It says Heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool (Is 66:1). The length of a man’s hand is proportionate to the length of his legs. Imagine how long God’s legs are that when He sits on His Heavenly throne, His legs rest on the earth. What pretty long legs they must be! Imagine how far He can lift you.In today’s reading, the sons of the prophets had a good problem. Good and bad problems require solutions and God gives all solutions. When they met Elisha, they asked for permission to enlarge their coast and he gave his blessings. From this we learn that you should discuss all your plans with God and get His blessing before embarking on any. Proverbs 3:5-6 says He should be acknowledged in all your plans. Never do anything behind Him.

Also, if He gives you the go ahead, He will easily respond when things go wrong – because He is involved. His Name is at stake. But if you move without His permission, He may take His time before He intervenes. The reason many plans fail is that we plan without Him and thereafter request for His blessing. Rather, first ask for His plan in the particular area. If it is His plan, it is already blessed and destined for success.

Psalm 37:4-5 says you should delight in Him. That means love, praise, worship and adore Him. Then anything you desire will come from Him. God is a perfect gentle man. When you treat Him very well, He will say thank you before you leave His presence. God is interested in giving you that winning proposal. He wants the best for you. But to what extent do you involve Him? Do you bring a suitor before Him and ask Him to approve the fellow as your spouse or do you ask for His choice for you in marriage?

To what extent do you consult with God before drawing your plans?

Prayers points to purse, overtake and recover all

 
Memorise: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (Jas 1:22)Read: 1 Samuel 30:7-10
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves” (James 1:22). After you receive an instruction from God, do it. When God asked David to pursue his enemies in 1 Samuel 30:7-10, he immediately mobilized his men and gave the looters a hot chase.In John 2:1-11, after the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus instructed the ushers at the marriage party to do whatsoever Jesus told them. If David had delayed in pursuing the enemies, he might not have recovered all. Most of our losses are recoverable. But most of such losses have become permanent because we failed to ask God how to go about recovering them, or after receiving an instruction, we delayed in implementation. It is dangerous to delay in obeying the Lord.Some of us argue too much. God is not someone you should be arguing with. He does not have the time to waste. If you are fond of arguing whenever God gives you an instruction, He will leave you alone. Every loss has a strategy for recovery. All you have to do is consult the loss recovery specialist – the Great Restorer.

The enemy will not allow you to recover or possess your possession without a struggle. You must be battle ready. This is where many fail. They start the fight but retire on the way to recovery. Fight for what is yours. You have the Lion of the Tribe of Judah on your side.

Some years ago, while returning from Ilesha, Nigeria, we were hit by a young man at a junction and the vehicle dragged into a pit. But when we shouted ‘Jesus’, the bus stopped. When some policemen later came to the scene, they blamed the driver for reckless driving. But when the latter had a tete-a-tete with them and told them he was the driver of a popular chief, they laughed and began to accuse us falsely. Then the lion in me arose. I pointed him to the RCCG logo on the car and told him, “Officer, in life, there is always a last assignment for one to do.

Do you want this to be your last assignment?” ‘No’ he replied and began to blame the true offender again. Never give room to the devil. Never entertain fear. Fight to see that God’s Word is fulfilled in your life. In the Name of Jesus, every strong man or woman assigned against your progress has performed the last assignment in your life.

Father, turn the last attack of my oppressors into their last assignment now.

Prayers points to cancel evil reports

 
Memorise: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Rev 1:8)Read: Revelation 1:7-11
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8). In this verse, several names and titles of Jesus are mentioned. Remember the Lord has no business with several titles other than the fact that He wants to meet the various needs of His children. He says, ‘I am Alpha’.What are the implications of Jesus as Alpha? Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. That is, He is the A and Z. It means Jesus Christ is the beginning and the ending of every writing, literary work or drawing. This gives Him absolute control and power over everything that is written on earth, in Heaven or beneath the earth. To His own, being Alpha and Omega therefore means He is able to control whatever is written concerning you. He can blot out any negative writing. He can modify or completely rewrite the story of your life. It means if anyone writes you off, He can write you in.”Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” (Col 2:14). Whether you believe it or not, there are certain writings done in the spiritual realm that are affecting or directing physical events taking place in the lives of many today.

Every writing that is done against you and your family is nullified by the blood of the Alpha and Omega today. He has power over every alphabet. That means, He can decide to assign powers to or withdraw powers from words and alphabets. For instance, if you are given a negative writing such as HIV/AIDS positive by your doctor or laboratory technician, the Alpha and Omega can withdraw the power of the letters, reduce them to ordinary letters and defeat the purpose.

Every letter of sack, confirmation or certification of an ailment against you shall lose their power today in Jesus’ Name. It does not matter whether the inscription, verdict or writing is done on sand, in pencil, biro, red ink, gold, brass or engraved in gold or brass, the Alpha and Omega has power over every alphabet.

From today, every alphabet that is organized into words against you will miss its target because the Alpha and Omega is on your side. Worship Him today.

Within the next 30 minutes, cancel all negative handwritings against your destiny and that of your family.

How powerful is the name of Jesus Christ?

 
Memorise: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD” (Is 54:17)Read: Ecclesiastes 10:1-3
Jesus name“Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper” (2 Kings 5:1).Naaman was an outstanding man. He towered in military expertise, tact and strength. He was a great man who wined and dined with the great. He was a man of honour and valour. In addition, he was someone God could use to accomplish His work. Naaman was all these, yet he was a leper.He was beautiful inside but repelling outside. There are people who are attractive inside but repelling outside. You may be merry by day but soak your pillows with tears every night. Quite a number of us have one or more ‘buts’ in our lives. There are beautiful sisters with no suitor for years. You may have a dynamic pastor with a mad wife. Every ‘but’ in your life shall go this season in Jesus’ Name.

One Word can mean so much. For example, Guilty is a havoc word. Stop is another terrible word; the enemy can ask you to stop when he sees you making progress. Dead is another terrible word. With the word condemned, a man who has excellent credentials, a beautiful family and bright prospects could lose everything. With one word, Satan can strip someone bare.

With a word like HIV/AIDS, Satan has robbed many of a bright future. However, thank God for the powerful words that can change things for good by God’s power. For instance, the word Restore can recover all losses of several years in one day. The word can deal with all root causes of sicknesses and leave the sick in good health.

The word Jesus is one that can compel Heaven and earth to deliver you that needed change and paralyze all enemy forces ganging up against you. In the mighty Name of Jesus, every powerful word working against your life and circumstance will be terminated today. Call the Name Jesus to take total control of your life today. Begin to delete every negative pronouncement or event upon your life by declaring God’s Words over that situation.

Heaven has just decided it is your turn to be FAVOURED!

Causes of unanswered christian prayers

 
Memorise: “Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:” ( Zech 7:13)Read: Zechariah 7:8-14
praiseThe Lord Jesus is a super Eagle who rides on the topmost height. You are seated together with Him in heavenly places ( Eph 2:5-6 ). In Deuteronomy 32:13, we read that God made the Israelites to ride on the high places. There is a route for you in the high places. Habakkuk 3:17-19 says even though things may be unpleasant and not as you expect presently, yet a route is awaiting you in the high places. You shall still walk on your high places.This year, you will ride with the Lord in your high places. There is increase (profit) in the high places. Oil and honey ooze out of the rock in the high places. As the Lord takes you to your high place of promotion, prosperity, progress and enlargement, you will receive blessings never thought possible in Jesus’ Name.You are a divine eaglet. Because the eagle takes the highest air route, it becomes difficult for it to be caught. As long as you are on the same flight with the King of Glory – always praising, worshipping and giving thanks in His presence, it becomes difficult for you to be ensnared by the hunter’s traps.

Why? You are taking a far higher route. Praise and worship are higher routes that when taken, you cannot be caught by the bullets of the enemy. Two parallel lines they say, never meet. All satanic attacks follow a particular route – attack route. Praise or worship is a higher route and therefore cannot intersect. If you are regularly hit by enemy fire, check the route you are taking. If you are travelling in disobedience, self-will, or trust in man, they are on the same low routes with attack route.

Anything on the same low route will be within the reach of enemies. Believers who are supposed to be seated in Christ Jesus in heavenly places find themselves vulnerable to the powers of darkness that are supposedly under them when they violate the code of conduct for operating in the heavenly plane – the Bible. Anytime you break the Word of God, you lose your position in the spiritual realm and begin an earth-ward descent.

At that point, the powers that were under you like the animals under Adam after the fall, will rebel against your government. Even animals want their independence. What route are you plying? Are you descending from the place of power and glory? Repent and ask God for a restoration today.

Ask for the spirit of worship to come upon today’s believers. Ask for grace to be a worshipper, not a complainer.

Sermon on how to work for God

 
Memorise: “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase” (1 Cor 3:6)

Read: Luke 8:1-3

At the shore of the Red Sea, after the sea had parted and a way made through it, the Israelites remained where they were. But for their leader, they would have lost their miracle. We learn that God can make a way for you in unexpected quarters. To the average Israelite, the only possible way to cross that big sea was through a ship. Even a boat will be some great risk.Alternatively, if they could swim, that would help to some extent. However, not all swimmers can attempt a sea that large. These days, we would think of constructing a bridge across it. The Isrealites least expected a way through the sea.

As you walk with God this year, do not limit your faith. Expect just anything He is prepared to give you. He could make you the beneficiary of maiden miracles – one that nobody has ever experienced before. God can turn your problem into solution.

Another possible reason for not jumping at the toll free way the Holy Spirit had created in the midst of the Red Sea, was that they wanted somebody to go in first, to assure them it was not a death trap. In other words, they wanted someone to bell the cat. Someone must take the lead before they could follow.

God had a fore knowledge of this, hence He prepared some leaders to go ahead of them. According to 1 Cor 3:6, God positioned leaders like Apostle Paul at the vanguard of the Christian faith.workingforgod

For instance, in today’s reading, we are told of a group of women who became Jesus’ partners. They provided the needed support for His ministry. Jesus had a treasury because some rich women – some of whom were healed of sicknesses or demonic possession made it their duty to minister back to Him. They were ahead and then others followed with their support.

Matthew 27:57-60 says apart from women, some men including Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus were rich men who led in financing Jesus’ ministry. Joseph was so influential that he went to demand for the body of Jesus. According to John 19:13-40, Nicodemus teamed up with Joseph to organize Jesus’ burial.

God is still in need of those who will bell the cat in worship, giving, Christian service, tithing, evangelism, forgiveness, etc. so that others can follow. Will you be that fellow?

Leading is not in words but in actions. If you always wait to be told to do something before you do it, your leadership abilities are in doubt.

Emmanuel: God is with you and us

 
Memorise: “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me” (Is 49:16)

Read: Isaiah 49:13-16

In 2 Kings 5:1, Naaman, the captain of the Syrian army was described as a great man. No matter how great a man may be, he is still a man – a mere mortal. Hence, Ecclesiastes 8:8 says no man can retain his spirit when death calls. Anyone threatening to stop you from reaching your goal shall have the Lord of Hosts to contend with.Being a man, Naaman was capable of falling asleep. Is there any earthly father who so loves his children that he stays awake to watch over them every night? Is there a man who so loves his wife to the extent of not sleeping – just keeping vigil every night, looking at her face? I do not know of any.

But we have a Father who keeps watch over us day and night. So if enemies want to come at night to harm you, tell them to come because the One who neither slumbers nor sleeps is waiting for them. Hence, David could say, “I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD only makest me dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8). If you are a child of God, you need not be afraid to sleep at night. God is not limited to the day. His excellent security services cover both day and night.

Another limitation in Naaman was that as a man he could forget things just like any other man. But Isaiah 49:15 says even when a nursing mother forgets her baby, God will not forget you. Why? Because He has engraven you upon the palms of His hands. You see people wear tattoos of different colours, shapes and sizes.God with me Emmnanuel

One thing about real tattoos is that it is difficult to erase once it is done. It becomes a part of the person in whose body it is done. In some cultures, tattooing was a means of enhancing one’s beauty. God thought of a way He can continue to remember you, so He decided to tattoo you to His palms. Anytime He lifts up His hands, He will see you.

You are God’s tattoo! The fact that He sees you regularly shows that He cannot forget you. He remembers you every second of the day, every day of the week and for the whole year. Another implication of being God’s tattoo is that He can never be separated from you. Every plan of the enemy to separate you from God this year will fail. Beloved, God remembers you. He will help you.

Thank God for tattooing you on the palm of His hands. Thank God that He can never forget you.

God is helper: How to receive help from God

helper God

 
Memorise: “For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee” (Is 41:13)Read: Isaiah 41:8-14
Naaman the captain of the Syrian army was described as a great man in 2 Kings 5:1. With his intimidating credentials when compared with the captain of the heavenly host, he was very limited. He was great yet he was still a man. He was subject to falling asleep and forgetting things like any other man. Naaman was a great man yet he was capable of failing. He could get tired or be discouraged.helperBut the captain of the Heavenly Host never fails, faints or gets tired (Isaiah 40:28). It is a dangerous thing to trust in great men, wealthy men or even your leaders because they can disappoint you any time their strength, wisdom, resources or morals fail them. Jeremiah 17:5 says those who trust in such human beings come under a curse. Another truth to note about Naaman is that although he was the one leading Syria into battle fields, nevertheless, each victory was delivered by God. You may be brilliant but academic success comes from God.You may be married but having a home is from God. You may have lots of things to make you happy but joy comes from God. You may have diverse security devices but safety is a product that only Heaven can deliver to you.

“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence” (Ps 91:3). Deliverance is from God. The strength of Naaman did not deliver the countries he fought into his hands. Whatever you are today is not by your power, wisdom or making. If you did not follow Satan’s route, then be rest assured it is God at work in your life.

Realizing that your progress is not entirely your making may deflate your ego, yet it brings good news to you: the God working behind the scene to get you to where you are, will ensure you reach your destination.

A minister of God took ill some time ago. He lost so much strength through vomiting and stooling. When he went for medication, because he could not retain anything in his stomach, he had to stay in a hospital for about 24 hours for the first time since he knew Christ some 26 years ago.

Meanwhile, he made several attempts back home to leave the bedroom to go to the sitting room, but could not for lack of strength. He had earlier been invited to attend a preaching engagement. On that day, he dressed up shivering and drove there. Suddenly strength came and he preached and ministered in the power of the Holy Ghost. He could not believe it.

By the time he returned home, the anointing left and he realized he could not leave the bed. Then he knew it’s not by power! Appreciate God for all He is doing through you. It’s not you, but Him.

Audio sermon: What are idols of the heart?

Idolatry goes beyond worshiping false gods.

There are several idolatry practices that we may not be aware of.

These includes idols of the heart and mind.

Anything that you cherish more than God is an idol.

Anything that takes you away from the presence of God or does not glory God is idolatry.

How do I grow spiritually as a christian?

Memorise: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Eph 1:3)

Read: Matthew 9:14-15

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).christian growthYour spiritual height determines the power that is made available to you. The higher you soar, the more powerful you become. The higher you climb, the more your control of crowds, animals, and spirits. Every blessing you will ever need has been reserved in Christ and He is seated in the heavenly places. This simply tells us your blessings are not from earth but Heaven. The man who labours with all his focus and expectation from earth may be disappointed.

Also, your blessings are not in the hands of any man other than the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The challenge now is: How can you access your blessings when spiritually seated together in the heavenly places in Christ, but physically living on earth?

First, you have to accept your spiritual positioning. As long as you do not accept that you are spiritually seated in Jesus Christ, you may never access your blessings in Christ. Also, your physical location must be harmonized with your spiritual placement.

This means, it takes a spiritual giant to access his blessings in the heavenly places. In other words, the more you grow in Christ, the more you are empowered to receive your benefits. This is why God places emphasis on faith, growth, obedience, and knowledge of Him. When you newly received Christ, you would observe that before you asked God for something, He gave it to you. Any little cry, He came around to handle the situation. But He knew that wouldn’t last.

The disciples enjoyed so many benefits while Jesus was physically present, yet the Lord told them a time would come when they would have to depend on their faith to have answers to their requests. He said they might have to ask in prayers and even back some with fasting before such answers would come. To access your blessings in Heavenly places, work on your faith level. Develop your faith through regular study of God’s Word, reviewing personal testimonies and listening to testimonies of others; listening to the messages of genuine servants of God, etc.

Also obey the Word. You cannot grow spiritually without obeying the Word of God. Your growth level is measured by the extent of your obedience to God’s Word. What is your attitude to His Word today? It is time to nurture your faith. If you have stopped growing, you have blocked your access to your blessings in the heavenlies.

Are you experiencing normal, abnormal, epileptic or supernatural growth? The type of growth you are witnessing is a product of spiritual diet, hunger and exercises.

What does it mean to become a born again christian?

 
Memorise: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (Jn 4:24 )Read: Matthew 13:5-6
born againBlessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3). The beatitudes present powerful foundational truths every Heaven-bound believer must not toy with. To be ‘poor’ suggests a lack or deficiency in something. The one who is impoverished in health is sick.The financially impoverished is one who needs money to make ends meet. The fellow who is poor in health will be in pursuit of healing. The one who is financially poor will most likely be found in a prosperity -preaching church because he needs money. A man who is poor in spirit will be in pursuit of spiritual things. In the above passage, our Lord Jesus Christ blessed those who are seeking spiritual things. It is what you seek you are likely to find, especially when you seek it correctly. If you seek spiritual things you will most likely find it.Why did Jesus say those seeking spiritual things are blessed? It is because God Himself is a spirit. John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”. Also, Hebrews 12:9 says God is the Father of spirits. Jesus said the Kingdom of God belongs to seekers of spiritual things. This means that the Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of spirits. In John 18:36, Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world. To enter His Kingdom, you must be born of the Spirit (Jn 3:5-6 ).

Today, the term ‘Born Again’ has almost lost its meaning. Just anything can now be born again. We now have born again gangsters, prostitutes, rebels and even politicians. An evil genius once called himself a born again democrat. Whether the term is misapplied or not, God’s Word is clear on the subject.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says to be born again, you must make Jesus Christ your dwelling place and become a brand new creature. Your old sinful life-style must go and a life-style of holiness must replace it. Without this, there is no true born again experience. John 3:5-6 says if you are still seeking the things of the flesh, you are yet in the flesh.

Those in the flesh will be preoccupied with how they dress – what they will wear and how to make dressy impressions. But those in the spirit want to please God. If you are remembered by your dressing, you have lost God’s glory. When God’s glory is upon you, nobody will notice what you wear because your face will radiate His glory. Are you born again? How are you known?

Ask God to create a hunger in you for spiritual things. Ask that you be known by the character of Christ.

How to overcome phobia of evil spirits and fear of witchcraft

 
Memorise: “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph 2:6)Read: Deuteronomy 32:7-13
eagle“He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock” (Deut 32:13 ).The eagle is a super bird. It is known to take higher flights because it wants to remain different. You will not see an eagle flying low. If it ever comes low, it is to pick its prey and up it returns. In the airways, there are higher and lower routes.The eagle deliberately selects the higher route. In today’s reading, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is compared to an eagle. He rides on the higher places. Ephesians 1:20-21 says Christ is raised above all and made to seat far above all dominion, power or throne. Jesus is not a crawler: He is a Super Eagle. Anyone who is riding on eagle’s wings will automatically fly as high as the eagle.

Being a child of the Super Eagle, you become an eaglet yourself. You would suddenly take the traits of the Eagle.

“And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church” (Ephesians 1:22). Power emanates from above. Even in the secular hierarchy, the higher you rise in the organizational structure, the more powerful you become.

The Lord Jesus Christ is positioned far higher than all satanic and human authorities hence, He is far more powerful than them. This is why all other powers are beneath His feet. This means, whenever He wants, He treads on the powers of darkness, and none of them can resist Him.

Ephesians 2:6 says, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”. Do you know that as Jesus was positioned in heavenly places so also were believers in Christ? In fact, Jesus Christ is our placement. Unfortunately, many believers become doubting Thomases when it comes to this, or simply refuse to act it out. Any believer who is constantly living in defeat is ignorant of who he is in Christ.

If you are afraid of witches and wizards and the occult, you are operating far below your spiritual placement in Christ. You should put the enemies to flight and not run from them. You are above them! If you are truly flying, no enemy can catch up with you.

Search through the scriptures and write out passages that talk about your spiritual placement and authority. Believe, confess and enforce them.

How to get over an enemy and overcome evil powers in Jesus name

 
Memorise: “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways” (Job 22:28)Read: Exodus 7:10-12
overcomeSome years ago, there was a popular native doctor in Akure, Nigeria. He was extremely ruthless and several people flocked regularly to him. But his shrine was next to the factory of one of my children. One day, this son of mine came to lay a complaint about the terror in his domain. He said each time he went around his factory, he saw mutilated bodies of children – bodies with no heads or genitals. He wanted the man to relocate. When I went to Akure, he showed me the place.I simply lifted my right hand and commanded him to be moved in Jesus’ Name. My son asked me, ‘Is that all?’ Then I told him there are times for regular prayers and there are times for decrees.The fetish priest had built his shrine around an iroko tree. Within seven days of that decree, the iroko tree dried up. And within another seven days the man died.

Today, I decree that every satanic nuisance in your life will stop now in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ. I command every satanic strong hold around you to move.

Apart from the fact that Moses’ hands were special, the rod in his hands was not an ordinary one. In Exodus 7:10-12, the same rod swallowed the magicians’ serpents in Egypt. Every evil force that will not allow you to reach your goal shall be swallowed today in Jesus’ Name. From today’s reading, it is glaring that Satan can counterfeit God’s miracles. Satan has never performed a miracle, only magic.

A miracle is the authentic version of a divine intervention in human affairs, while magic is the fake attempt to replicate it. So don’t be amazed when people of the occult perform magic. Another lesson here is that both the forces of good and evil know which is real and which is fake. Satan fakes speaking in tongues in a bid to deceive the undiscerning, but when he comes face to face with a genuinely Spirit – filled believer, he panics because the difference is clear.

Similarly, from today’s reading, God’s power supersedes that of Satan. And just as the rod of Moses swallowed the snakes of the Egyptian magicians, every agent of darkness fighting against you will lose their weapons to the power of the Holy Spirit inside of you. Ask in faith today. You can relocate that enemy today!

You are light. Darkness should not dwell with or around you. Command every agent of darkness living around you to relocate now.

Bible on Jesus as the advocate and intercessor

 
Memorise: “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 Jn 2:2)Read: 1 John 2:1-2
advocateThe Lord Jesus Christ is a lover of names. Each time He introduces Himself or He is introduced by an angel or a member of the Godhead, He may be called by a new name or title. One of such names is Good Tidings of Great Joy.The name of a powerful man is of great significance both to the owner and anyone who comes under its influence. In today’s reading, in a general epistle to the body of believers, Jesus is introduced as the Advocate with the Father.Why is He our advocate? According to 1 John 1:7-9, it is to ensure that His atoning blood is still effective in cleansing us from sin even after we are saved. But for this provision, all believers who sinned after their salvation experience would have been eternally doomed.

Here, we are told that provided believers do not deliberately engage in sin, but continue to walk in the light of the Word of God they have received, fellowship with other believers and immediately confess sin, the blood will avail for them.

“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25). According to Hebrews 7:24-25, another reason He is called our Advocate is so that He can intercede for us. Do you know that just as you need man to intercede for you, so also you need members of the Godhead to intercede on your behalf . The Advocate and the Holy Spirit intercede for us in Heaven.

For instance, in Luke 22:31, when Satan had concluded his plan to turn Peter – the most zealous of the 12 into a reprobate, it took the intercession of the Advocate to spoil that plan.

In addition, Jesus is our Advocate so that He can represent us before every court whether in Heaven or earth. In those courts, you need a lawyer to defend you, or else once the accuser of the brethren brings a case against you, and there is no one to defend you, the case will be decided against you.

One way the Advocate represents us is by getting His blood to speak on our behalf (Heb 12:24). Every case raised against you in witches’ covens and kingdom of darkness shall be struck out by the blood of Jesus. Also, He is our advocate so as to help us package our prayer requests for expedited answers. If Jesus is your advocate, you will never lose any case on earth or in Heaven. Employ His services today!

Unlike earthly lawyers who are limited to earthly courts, the Advocate can represent you anywhere in and outside our planet where there is a case against you.

How to solve hard and difficult problems

 
Memorise: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich (2 Cor 8:9)Read: Psalm 75:5-7
praWhen God’s blessings overflow your containers and you are now looking for more to contain them, that is a good problem. This year, the Lord will give you a good problem in Jesus’ Name. In 2 Kings 6:1-7, that was the type of problem the sons of the prophet came to report to Elisha. Just as you have good problems, you equally have bad problems . Sickness is a bad problem.Thank God for the provision He has made for our healing in 1 Peter 2:24. Poverty is a bad problem. You can be the poorest fellow on earth, yet if you are not born again, you would still go to hell. God never admits the poor into Heaven for the sake of their poverty. Let no one deceive you that poverty admits into Heaven. It doesn’t!On the other hand, you can be the richest fellow on earth, yet if you are born again and live holy, you will get to Heaven and see God. 2 Corinthians 8:9 says Jesus Christ entered into an exchange program so that you can have His riches. This season, you shall be a full beneficiary of this exchange programme.Bondage is another bad problem. It is what draws you back whenever you want to move forward. If you can surrender to the Lord of Hosts today, the yoke of bondage shall be destroyed and you will be free. Barrenness is also a bad problem. This could take several forms. It could manifest as inability to procreate – have your own children. It could be inability to generate ideas that will cause you to make progress at work.

John 15:5 says if you can make Jesus your permanent abode from today, the problem of barrenness will be over. Remaining on the same level for years is another manifestation of barrenness. Some people have not known progress as they have remained on a fixed salary. When God promotes you, it is progressive. You will find yourself going higher every day. Psalm 75:5-7 says true promotion emanates from God.

There is a limit to which any man can promote you, even your friends; most people will not want their friends to surpass them. Even when a man wants to go the whole hog in promotion, he cannot lift you higher than his hands can go. But the Everlasting arms of the Most High cannot be limited. Ask God to put an end to every bad problem in your life today.

What is that bad problem in your church, or place of work? Ask the Lord to solve it today.

Qualities and attributes of a fake ad true born again christian

 
Memorise: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit” (Jn 3:6)Read: John 3:5-6
fakeIf you are born again, it will show in various compartments of your life. It will affect your desires, priorities, goals and association. In John 3:6, Jesus says, ” That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit”.Every human being experiences a fleshly birth. Even if it were possible to enter your mother’s womb and be reborn, it is still a fleshly biological birth. But there is a spiritual birth. It is when you take a trip to the womb of the Spirit and you are born a new creation.That is the new birth. Without this, man is lost. One thing about this spiritual birth is that it will stir up intense hunger for spiritual things.A young secondary school student was in form four when he became born again during the holidays. Thereafter, he returned to his former church but it was no longer fun. The religious activities he used to enjoy now became a drab. He began to thirst after righteousness but was not satisfied. He felt like someone being starved. He soon saw himself like a stranger in a church he attended from his childhood. At some point, he went to counsel with his spiritual parents and was asked to move to a gospel church. That was where his spiritual needs were met.

The day you are born again something dies. You claim to be born again yet you still keep girl friends, smoke, steal, cheat, or fornicate. That claim is highly questionable. You claim to be born again yet you do not pant after spiritual things – to study God’s Word, pray, fast , read Christian books, fellowship within a living church, etc.

It is either you are born again or you are not. There is nothing like partially saved. Ask some people why they claim to be born again and they will tell you, ‘I used to chain-smoke but now I take just one cigarette daily’. ‘ Or, I used to have several girl friends but now I have one’. Or, “I used to demand bribes before but now I only receive the one I am given: afterall, I did not ask for it’.

Congratulations. You are getting close to the Kingdom of God. But the day you truly realize you are a sinner, confess and forsake your sins and receive Jesus into your heart, you will be saved. That day you will begin to notice some changes taking place from within .There is no New Birth without commensurate change.

Where are the fruits of repentance in your life and character?

Sermon on how to stop worrying too much about money

 
Memorise: “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” (Matt 6:34)Read: Matthew 6:31-34
moneyOne day, the Lord asked me, “of all fundamental issues in your life, how many of them did you choose by yourself?” I told Him, ‘Lord, I don’t understand. I think I have done a lot of choosing’. Then He asked, ‘Who chose your dad, mum, place of birth, height, complexion, etc.? Suddenly, you feel you have become grown up and want to choose all by yourself’.Then I realized I was charting the course of independence from the Most High God! The One who had laid the foundation of your life and has taken you this far, says He wants to complete what He started but you say, ‘I know you are God but step aside and let me handle my affairs myself’. That amounts to foolishness! Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ”.In other words, God is saying all your spiritual needs are provided for. It is a settled matter. Why then are you worrying about what to eat, drink, wear, where to school, and who to marry when Jesus promised that if only you can completely depend on Him all these shall be satisfied? (Matthew 6:33).

One problem with Africans is that no matter how wealthy a man is, he never stops acquiring more. Like Oliver Twist, he keeps asking for more money, more houses and estates, more cars and businesses. When asked why, he will say he is acquiring it for his children to inherit after his death. God opened my eyes one day to see the hollowness of such reasoning;

Your prayer should not be: ‘God, when I die, let my children inherit all I left behind’, but ‘Lord, prosper my children to the extent that they do not need anything I have acquired’. I do not want to die and my children will be dragging one another to court to fight over houses, land and other assets. I want them to thank God for my life but also thank God for prospering them too.

From scriptures, the Lord showed me that if my children will follow His footsteps and do His will, He will do far greater for them than He did for me. He showed me that Abraham was great, Isaac was greater but Jacob was exceedingly great. Why worry about what will happen to your children? If they follow Christ’s footsteps they will be greater than you. Just give them a solid foundation in Christ’s and a good education. These are part of your primary responsibilities.

Father, let my peak be the starting point for my children.

How to make the best use of opportunities

 
Memorise: “Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread” ( Prov 20:13)Read: 2 Kings 4:1-7
images (1)An individual can be blinded to what can destroy him. The fellow can also be blinded to good things that are coming towards him. In any way you have been blinded, the Lord will open the eyes of your mind in Jesus’ Name. Another possibility here is being blinded to opportunities around you. Opportunities are the raw materials that must be processed in order to get to your ultimate destination. As long as you do not take advantage of the opportunities you have, you can never fulfil your destiny. One secret of those who are outstanding is their ability to identify opportunities when they see them. Your link with the man of God provides you opportunities. In 2 Kings 4:8-17, the Shunammite woman had a great opportunity lurking around her by virtue of her link with Elisha.For so long, she refused to use that opportunity. As long as she refused to use what she had, she remained barren until God intervened in mercy. The medium of releasing her desired child had been with her all the while but she never utilized the opportunity until it was almost too late. She was blind all along. Has your access to a genuine man of God paid off?

Similarly, what you already have could provide you with the opportunity you need to reach your goal. In 2 Kings 4:1-7, the oil, friendly neighbors, neighbors’ vessels, two sons, the man of God and ability to ask, were there all the while but the prophet’s widow never saw the possibilities in them. While she had what could turn around her debt situation, she lamented daily but remained in poverty.

It took the prophet of God to open her eyes to see that what she was expecting from Heaven was with her at home. Do you know that the talent that will bring you to the limelight is already with you? On the other hand, you may need to enrol in a course or acquire more skills or training to make you proficient. Do you know that if you can combine all your material, spiritual and intellectual assets, you will have the opportunities to get wealth, excel, and be outstanding?

Some people never see the opportunities in their assets so they die in sorrow, pain and debt. Are you in tears over your so-called predicament? Stop those tears! What do you have? You can use what you have to get what you need or desire. Ask God to open your eyes today. This year, you will see and take advantage of all opportunities coming your way in Jesus’ Name.

Lord, open the eyes of our youths to opportunities surrounding them.
