How to be filled with the Holy Spirit

Memorise: “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matt 5:6)

Read: Matthew 20:20-23

In Matthew 5:3, Jesus said the poor in spirit are in the category of the blessed. The poor in spirit are those who are never satisfied with their spiritual state. They are always hungry for more of God – His love, the fruit of His Spirit and gifts of the Spirit. Their delight is in Christ. Luke 11:9-10 says if you seek, you will find. One major characteristic of the poor in spirit is that they have a large capacity to fill.They are insatiable in their quest for Heavenly things, and would not rest until they are filled. Jesus says in Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled”. Hunger plays a major role in the distribution of Heavenly blessings. Some people are okay with a cup of tea in the morning.

Some do not even take breakfast because they are not hungry. When it comes to lunch or supper, some adults do not eat more than an eight-year old. God cannot fill you beyond your capacity or container. I

you think you are okay the way you are, you will never move an inch beyond that point. If you do not hunger to know more about God, you will be limited to the little you already know about Him.

When James and John requested for top Heavenly positions through their mother who was one of Jesus’ ministry helpers, they were hunger-driven. The Lord saw it and corrected what was out of order and showed them how to be great. They took His path and entered into greatness. The stronghold of the flesh over their temperaments was broken. The lions became lambs. And they not only became part of the inner circle of Jesus, John became His closest associate.

To know God, you must be poor in spirit. You must hunger for more of Him until He fills youholy spirit up completely. The extent you can climb the spiritual ladder does not depend on how many top pastors you know, but on how hungry you are for Heavenly things. James and John were not hungry for earthly positions but heavenly ones.

Those who would seat on Heavenly thrones are those who hungered for more of God and His Kingdom during their life time. What are you hungry for? Is it for the earthly bread or the Heavenly bread? Your hunger will determine your growth level and pace. Ask God to give you real hunger for eternal things.

Ask for hunger pangs for the things of God. Pray against the spirit of accident on our roads.

Essence of evangelism and Why christians must evangelise

Memorise: “The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe” (Jn 1:7)

Read: John 1:6-8

In 2 Kings 5:2-4, it was Naaman’s young house maid that God used in linking him with his healing. There is nobody too small or too big for God to use for His glory. She was a very good witness. She bore witness of the miracles she had seen and heard in Israel and it paid off. Every follower of Christ has been called to be a witness of the Lord.In John 1:7, John the Baptist was sent as a witness of Jesus Christ so that all men through him might believe in Jesus. Like the little maid, John did a good job as Christ’s witness. The apostles of old and the Early Church were also called to be witnesses of Jesus. You have been saved so that you can be a witness of Jesus. God loves good witnesses.

There is power in witnessing for Christ. If you want to experience the miraculous, tell others about Jesus – what He did for you, how He saved you from sin and that He can do the same or much more for them. As soon as the person believes, power is released to change the fellow. Miraculous events lurk around faithful witnesses of Jesus.

In Acts 1:8, Jesus says you shall be a witness for Him. What does it mean to be a witness? In secular parlance, when there is a case involving two or more people and it is taken to a court of law, both parties would be expected to invite witnesses who would make statements in favour of the person who invited them.

The witness is expected to present a true account of the event in question. His testimony is also expected to strengthen the arguments of the one who invited him as a witness. One way or another, a witness is a representative of the one who invited him to testify in a matter. In the same vein, you are a witness of Jesus Christ if you have truly received Him into your heart as Lord and Saviour. You automatically become His representative – an ambassador of Christ.evangelist

What you say or do should be in favour of Jesus and strengthen His offer of salvation to the unbelievers. He expects you to present a true account of His dealings in your life and family since you accepted Him into your life. You can be a deciding factor whether the unbelievers around you would submit their lives to Christ or not. A witness who refuses to testify in court is obviously an enemy of the one he is representing.

Are you His witness? Are you still sharing the love of Jesus? Someone needs that testimony. Tell it today!

As a witness of Jesus Christ, lead a soul to Christ today. Also pray for the soul to be established.

Does God answer all prayer requests?

Memorise: “For the LORD of hosts hath purposed and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” (Is 14:27)

Read: Deuteronomy 32:37-41

When a need is presented to the wrong person, it is misplaced. It may never be met. One reason some Christians have not obtained their requests from their husbands, parents, relatives or friends, is because they asked a man instead of God. You may need to repent and return to God with the request or it may never be met.prayer requestsAnother lesson from 2 Kings 5:3-7 is that the devil may delay a blessing but may not be able to prevent it. When Satan observed that the ‘but’ in Naaman’s life was about to disappear, he moved to confuse the king so that there could be a misplaced request. If God had not intervened, instead of healing, there would have been another war between Israel and Syria. Today, harmless requests cause war in homes and relationships. Satan specializes in diverting requests.

In Daniel 10:12-14, immediately Daniel prayed, the answer was released. But Satan decided to double cross the angel, which led to a delay of 21 days. God had to send another angel before the answer could reach Daniel. All your delayed prayers shall be released to you this season in Jesus’ Name.

Seeking help from well placed individuals, friends and relatives may appear good but they are misplaced requests. If you go to commercial prophets for special prayers, you are only delaying your miracles. Give your life to Jesus and have direct access to Him. Kings, presidents and governors may be powerful, but they are limited. They, like the Isreali king, cannot heal the sick. He was shocked when he received the letter from his Syrian counterpart. Our God is the only One who cannot be limited. He can kill and give life (Deut 32:39).

Four boys once argued over whose father was the greatest. One said his father was, being the president. The second said since his father was the president’s doctor, he could restrict the movement of the president. The third boy boasted that his father was greater than the father of the other two because he was their juju priest. The fourth boy argued that his father was the greatest because He could kill and make alive.

The other three laughed at him thinking he was referring to his earthly father. But he said he was referring to Jesus Christ. He is the King that can grant all requests. Who is your father?

Are you defaulting in first fruits? Pay it without delay.

Prayer: O God open my spiritual eyes

 
Memorise: “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matt 15:14)Read: Matthew 15:12-14
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14).Is it possible to be heading for a distant destination with one’s eyes closed? Today’s reading says it is possible in leadership. The Lord Jesus Christ talks of blind leadership and blind leaders. Are you a leader? Are you blind or seeing? Is your leader blind or seeing? Who is a blind leader?spiritual eyesA blind leader is an unsaved person who is leading others. If you are an unsaved pastor who cannot live a victorious Christian life, yet you are supposed to be watching over souls, you are a blind leader. Some people go into ministry or start a church because they were trained in the seminary to do this; not because God said they should.

A pastor headed a church for about 25 years. Then one day, he invited a man of God who taught the Word with conviction and he made an altar call for sinners to come forward. The host pastor was one of those who came out to be born again! This was after close to three decades of pastoring!

A blind leader is also someone put over God’s people but who fails to consult God and receive divine directions concerning those under him. A blind leader is one who is bereft of the gifts of the Spirit – particularly the revelational gifts, which should keep him abreast of events that would affect those under him.

Also, a blind leader is one who heavily depends on his physical sight to take spiritual decisions. He is one who has lost his spiritual eyes to birds of the air over past acts of disobedience and disrespect to parents. In addition, a blind leader is one who has no revelational knowledge of God’s Word, hence all he teaches is the letter but not the spirit of the Word.

A blind leader is one who is influenced by man’s gifts or bribes and therefore compromises the truth in decision making or judgement. He is also one who has no vision – he is not sure where he is going to. He is one who has no inkling about what the future holds for him or those under him. Are you a blind leader? The fate of blind leaders is damnation. If you do not even care for yourself as a blind leader, think of the fate of those you are leading!

Ask God to open your spiritual eyes and destroy everything making you spiritually blind.

Would God forgive my terrible sins?

 
Memorise: “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph 5:16)

Read: Mark 2:1-12

During a trial of faith, God wants to know how elastic your faith is. He will take your faith beyond certain limits, sometimes, even up to breaking point. Yet, He is still in control. To remain intact, keep your faith in the Lord. Are you going through a period of hardship? You will not go under.The Lord will see you through in Jesus’ Name. Isaiah 6:9-12 says it is possible to be staring but not seeing. You can be looking at something but concentrating on what you should not. When you go on the way, you would see all kinds of things, people and events. When you see the opposite sex in nude form, if you concentrate on that, you will be in trouble. Each time you look at the wrong thing, you may not see what you were meant to see. This year, may your eyes see only what God wants them to see in Jesus’ Name.confessions sin

God said He wants the eyes of the people blinded and their hearts fattened with prosperity so that they will not repent and be healed. This tells us that when prosperity comes, it can be a blessing or a curse. Not all those you see getting fat are really blessed. They may just be fattened for the slaughter slab. The heart of Nabal was fattened with wine.

What followed was his obituary (1 Samuel 25:36-38 ). The heart of some become so fattened that they are prone to a heart attack. God’s blessing does not bring you sorrow. Your blessing will not become your undoing in Jesus’ Name. We also learn that repentance brings healing. In today’s passage, when the paralytic was brought, Jesus first forgave his sins before healing him. I have told my children that if a believer is sick and all prayer effort fails, it is advisable to check if there is an unconfessed sin. Sometimes, people prefer to die than confess their sin.

A woman was sick and defied all prayers. When I asked God what was responsible, He asked me to ask her. Initially, she refused to confess but after persuading her that it could assist her healing, she said she was the second wife of her husband. The first wife died and left two boys. Not wanting the boys to inherit the property of her husband, she killed them. She said if her husband knew, he would kill her. She said if confession was the condition for her healing, she was better dead.

Are there pending issues you need to confess? Do so today so that you can be healed. According to Ephesians 5:16, until confession is made, you may not access certain breakthroughs in your health or finance.

Pray for the success of your local church programmes this period.

Prayers: I need God’s divine intervention!

 
Memorise: “For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat;”( Prov 30:22)

Read: Proverbs 30:21-23

One thing king Solomon could not stand was seeing trekking princes and horse -riding servants. One possible reason why a prince may trek while his servants ride horses is that the prince does not know who he is. Another reason for this anomaly is that the prince may not know that he is supposed to be riding a horse. For instance, he may think that trekking may be good exercise.God will interveneThere are those who still believe that because Jesus said it would be difficult for the rich to enter into the kingdom of Heaven, it is better not to be rich. I thought so in the past but now I know better. Some believers misinterpret the command to carry your cross and follow Jesus to mean that we should continue in sickness, poverty, sorrow, etc. We have forgotten that He came to give us the abundant life ( Jn 10:10). How can He come to take away your sorrow and at the same time still expect you to carry that sorrow?

Recently, in one of our churches, I was invited to come and speak on ‘Surviving In A Coastal Environment’. As I repeatedly considered the topic, I could not believe that I could be given such a topic in RCCG..

I wondered why they did not use the word ‘Triumphing’. It is ignorance to think that because 1 Peter 2:21 says Jesus suffered and left His footprints for us to follow, therefore we should be poor and beggarly. Remember, Jesus was never sick inspite of His ever busy schedule. We should follow His steps in power, holiness, glory, etc. Was Jesus truly poor? How come He had a treasurer?

Another likely reason for the reverse of the old order is that it is possible the prince is trekking because the tide has changed. For instance, Demas. Paul called him a fellow labourer ( Col 4:14). Demas was riding with Paul the Apostle but all of a sudden, he began to trek with the people of the world. Judges 15:14-15 talks of Samson. While he was riding on horses, with a jaw bone of an ass he killed 1000 enemies.

But in Judges 16:20-21, he was seen trekking -grinding corn as a prisoner of war. When a monkey begins to trek instead of jumping from tree to tree, you can tell something has gone wrong. Were things well with you but have now turned the other way round? The Lord will intervene and take you back to ride on horse back in Jesus’ Name. Ask Him to return you to your high places today.

Spend 30 minutes interceding for missionaries in various mission fields all over the world.

I need faith to overcome obstacles and problems

 
Memorise: “For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper” (Ps 72:12)

Read: Psalm 71:5-9

The sons of the prophets were permitted by Elisha and even accompanied by him on their expansion programme, yet they ran into a problem: they lost the borrowed axe head (2 Kings 6:1-7). This tells us that even when you are in God’s will and working in total obedience to God, you can still run into problems. Some believers have had to doubt if God was still in something they started within God’s will because of the challenges they faced on the way.faithUnfortunately, some have backed out of God’s will, assignment or instruction because of such problems. You must expect Satan’s challenge whenever you set out to do God’s will. Infact, if you never get such a challenge or opposition over the particular project or mission, it is doubtful if God is in it. The more important it is to God, the more Satan will attack it with every weapon at his disposal.

A brother set out to write his first book as clearly led of God. Satan fought virtually every stage of the production of that book. A lot of things went wrong at different times. At a stage, the printer’s wife wondered why the project had caused her husband so much stress. After all, he had handled several books before. Did God ask you to go ahead and marry a particular spouse but now you are thinking of calling it quits? Don’t! If you both had the assurance that God was in it from the beginning, jointly combat the forces. You will overcome!

After the young student spotted where the axe-head dropped in the Jordan, Elisha cut a tree and hurled it in. If you have ever experienced a river or swimming pool before, you would know that a piece of wood will float on water, while iron will sink. But this wood took a supernatural form just because anointed hands had touched it. The wood was sent on an errand and it adjusted its form so as to perform the assignment.

As soon as the wood entered the Jordan river, the missing axe head began to float. John 15:1 says Jesus is the Vine. Wherever you introduce Him, there must be spectacular events. God is able to reverse the irreversible. What is amiss in your life today? Cast in this Heavenly Vine and your iron will surface. Whatever good thing you have lost shall be recovered this season. Put your hope in the Lord and call upon Him in faith. He will make a way for you.

Any project or ministry that is not heavily fought by satanic powers is of no threat to them and therefore of no Heavenly value.

What is Gods purpose for my life?

 
Memorise: “Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you” (1 Pet 1:10)

Read: 2 Kings 5:1-5

In 2 Kings 5:2-4, a slave girl was brought into Naaman’s house from Israel. She was a young girl. Although the pains of being separated from parents, friends and loved ones could not be avoided, yet she overcame them fast. She paused to ask herself: “Why me?There are grown adults who could have been more effective even as a slave in a foreign land. But why was I the one taken in their recent raid on Israel?” She frequently pondered on this while she did her domestic chores. Then one day, she mistakenly stumbled on her master – Naaman, going through his depressive mood flanked by his wife and others. They were trying to comfort him after trying a fresh set of treatment that failed to yield any positive result.

She took interest, probed further and got to know that he was a leper. In Syria, it was believed that leprosy was an incurable illness. No leper had any hope of healing.

The slave girl withdrew herself and got thinking. She recalled how in Israel some sick people had an encounter with the prophet of God and were healed. And how other miraculous events had taken place in the lives of individuals, families and the nation through God’s power. Then she wondered why Naaman had not gone to Israel to try God. It was then it occurred to her that God could have brought her through slavery into Naaman’s house to be the link to his miracle! ‘

That’s it!’ She screamed. From that moment, she understood that she was on a divine assignment to connect this lord with his miracle. She did not waste time before telling her mistress that if only they could go to prophet Elisha, Naaman would be healed. When they sent for her, she confirmed it even before the king. She was a link to Naaman’s blessing. Do you know that you are a link to someone’s blessings?

In fact, if you can take your eyes from the negative aspect of your placement or predicament and ask God why He allowed you to be in that situation, you will discover God’s purpose and fulfil it.

 

God might have denied you a particular request just because He wants you to remain where you are and link somebody connected to your destiny with his or her blessing. Have you discovered those you are meant to link to their blessing? Go ahead and be the link. If not, ask God to show you.

The situation today may be unpleasant. Be expectant of a pleasant tomorrow.

Is Jesus Christ truly coming back?

 
Memorise: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” ( Rev 22:12)

Read: John 14:1-3

In Matthew 28:5, an angel told the women who came to the tomb of Jesus not to fear because they sought after Jesus. When you seek Jesus, He will protect you from every evil. When you seek Jesus, everything else you forsook in the process will seek after you (Matt 6:33).It is wisdom to seek Jesus. The wise men sought Him and their joy was full and they received direction from Heaven (Matt 2:9-12). Whom are you seeking – Jesus or material things? Some people are afraid of tomorrow. They fear that there might be a war. Even if there is one, the One who lives forever will protect you from its effects. If the Lord says you should not be afraid but you continue to live in fear, He may not be able to help you.

Fear in your heart limits His power and might.

Fear only what He says you should fear -God, and refuse to fear anything else.

Apart from the fact that Jesus rose from the dead, He is coming back again. Revelation 22:12 says, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be”. The Lord is coming. John 14:1-3 says one reason He went away was because of you and I. He went to prepare a place for us. He is coming to take us to those prepared mansions. Are you ready?

He is coming. The signs of His return surround us: the move towards a cashless society, increase in knowledge- for instance through the internet, lots of people growing cold in the Lord, etc. But even if He tarries, when your time comes to leave the scene, you will go. Each time somebody passes on to glory, for that fellow, the Lord has returned.

When I was the PFN president, a young man preached a sermon on the second coming of Christ in one of our conferences. He tried to prove with reasons that His coming was at hand. At the end of it, I came to make a comment. I wanted to say if the Lord tarries, you may still go but because a bishop just passed on and I did not want them to think I was referring to him, I said, if you do not believe all we have said concerning His second coming, believe it because the Bible said so. A few days later the young man who preached the sermon passed away in his sleep. He is coming. But are you ready?

What is that thing that can disqualify you from Heaven? Deal with it today before it is too late.

Writing a prayer request

 
Memorise: “For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness” (Ps107:9)

Read: 2 Kings 5:5-7

After the little maid in Naaman’s house had convinced everyone who cared to know that healing was awaiting her master in Israel, the king of Syria took it from there. He wrote the Israeli king that he must cure Naaman of his leprosy. The maid clearly told them where to go – to the national prophet – Elisha but they wrote to the king. This is some diversion.One reason many needs or desires are not met is because they are misplaced. Misplaced requests never get to their destination. In Genesis 30:1-2, Rachel was desperately in need of children. She had tried all she knew how to. One day, she grabbed her husband Jacob by the collar and told him: “It is either you give me children today or I die”. Once again a good request was misplaced. No man gives children because Psalm 127:3 says they are from God.

Asking your spouse for a child is a good but misplaced request. It is essential that requests be properly channelled to the appropriate quarters for action to be taken on them. Some wives or children make good but misplaced requests of their husbands and parents. You are asking the wrong person. Some wives nag their husbands over a particular need to the point that instead of being met, it stirs up anger as in the case of Rachel and Jacob.

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Phil 4:6). This scripture did not say you should channel some, but all your requests to God. It did not say take all these requests to your husband or father. Why? James 1:17 says every good thing comes from God, not your spouse.

Psalm 107:9 says, “For prayerequestshe satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness”. Although parents should provide for their households or they are worse than unbelievers, they must not be turned into your source. Your spouse is not your source. Your father is not your source: God is your source.

When you have a need, before you make it known to your parents or spouse, first tell your Source – the Lord Jesus Christ. He will decide how the need will be met. If you cultivate the habit of going to God concerning every need, it will save you time and bring your desired results.

Re-address your misdirected requests to the appropriate person – The El-Shaddai.

How to overcome past failures and achieve success

 
Memorise: “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him” (1 Cor 8:6)

Read: Rev 22:12-13

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Rev 22:13). The Godhead loves names and titles. Of the Trinity, Jesus Christ exceeds the Father and the Holy Spirit in the name game. In the Bible, God the Father has a minimum of 20 names and titles. God the Holy Spirit has a minimum of 30 while Jesus Christ has a minimum of 100.overcome failureYet none of these is for fun. Each of God’s names or titles is meant to accomplish something in our lives. I pray that this year, you will have the full benefits of His Names. In today’s reading we are introduced to Jesus Christ as the Alpha. Alpha is the first letter in Greek Alphabet. It also means the beginning. Jesus Christ as Alpha has several implications to modern day believers. First, everything has a beginning – an origin or source.

Jesus is that origin. He is the source of every living and nonliving thing. John 1:3 says, “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made”. You did not originate from your parents but from Jesus Christ. You did not originate from apes or amoeba but from Jesus. You are a divine product that came out of God. Being your origin, He is your source. That is why He is not happy whenever you look away from Him to a fellow man. Welcome to your origin. The day you truly embrace this truth from your heart, you will stop running after man for help. Who can help you more than the One you came out from?

The implication of Jesus as Alpha – the beginning, is that He can give you a new beginning. Have you messed up in a particular assignment? Have you come to the end of the road? As long as you are connected with The Beginning, your present situation is not final. He will make a way out for you.

He will give you a second chance. Who said because you tried but failed you cannot make it again? The fellow is a liar as far as The Beginning is concerned. You can begin again. Did you give up hope in pursuit of that career, spouse or ministry as led by God? Dust up your hope. You are beginning afresh because this season, The Beginning is releasing the strength for a fresh start into you. Worship the Alpha regularly from today. Worship Him for being The Beginning.

The grace to begin again is released to you now. Use it wisely.

How to achieve breakthroughs with the power of faith in God

 
Memorise: “And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad to drink” (Gen 21:19)

Read: Genesis 21:14-19

“And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not” (Isaiah 6:9).Some people are blind to what will destroy them. Others are blind to good things coming their way. Yet others cannot see the opportunities around them. It is also possible to be blind to one’s miracle or help. “And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad to drink” (Genesis 21:19).

When Hagar exhausted the water in her water bottle, she was scared. With no hope of getting water in the wilderness, she thought their appointment with death had come. She wept. She was so preoccupied with negative thoughts that she could not see the well beside her. It took God to open her eyes to see the well. She and Ishmael lived and prospered. In every wilderness journey, there is a well of provision. Just as Hagar could not exhaust the well with her water bottle, so does the well in your wilderness contain more than you need to sustain you in that journey. But until you look up to God in faith, you may not see the well beside you. Stop crying. Dry up your tears. Look up to God and He will open your eyes. Are you undergoing a trial of faith? Look up to Him and He will see you through.

Another lesson here is that although God has made provision for the one undergoing a wilderness experience, yet will the fellow not partake of it until he or she displays pure, raw faith. In this case, it was the baby that cried to God that God answered, not Hagar.

A very committed brother was undergoing a wilderness experience some years ago. The Lord asked him to wed that year. He was prospecting a particular business. His client had agreed to patronize him and was about to give him his new address where he would pick the money, when the line went off. All attempts to get the client on phone were unsuccessful. Later, he got to know that the telephone exchange had been engulfed in flames. Later, he secured admission for his postgraduate studies but had no money.

He and his wife had to wait on the Lord for a while before God opened the door. By the time provision came, it was examination time. He went and took his first semester examination. The same thing happened during the second semester. In fact, after resumption, they had to pray and wait on the Lord and the exam date was moved two times. When it would be moved no more, provision came and he went to take the exam yet he never failed any subject. Your faith is stretched during a trial of faith to know how elastic it is. How elastic is your faith?

Father, give me grace to stand each time my faith is stretched.

Does God want Christians to be prosperous and rich?

 

 

 
 Memorise: “Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes”
(Prov 19:10)

Read: Ecclesiastes 10:5-7

“I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth” (Ecclesiastes 10:7). Solomon was the wisest man in the Old Testament. He had a simple way of communicating great truths. In today’s reading, he showed his dismay about servants ruling over princes. In Proverbs 30:21-23, hemoney said he could not tolerate a servant ruling over those who should rule over him. God shared this sentiment with king Solomon. Revelation 1:4-6 says you have been made a king and priest to God. 1 Peter 2:9 says you are of divine royal blood.

God is sad when He sees the one He created to dominate, at the mercy of those who should be under him. Are you living up to your billing as a prince of God? Why would a prince trek while his servants ride horses? It may be that the prince does not know who he is. Hosea 4:6 says ignorance is the root cause of the destruction of God’s children. Many believers are ignorant of their Kingdom rights and privileges. Any right or benefit you do not know will be lost to the enemy.

John 8:32 says it is the truth you know that sets you free. In other words, you will remain imprisoned, limited or incapacitated in any area you do not know your rights. All your Kingdom rights are contained in the Bible. You are not doing anyone a favour by studying the Bible, except yourself.

In spite of the promise in 3 John 2, many believers do not know that God expects us to live in divine health. It took some of us considerable time to accept this Kingdom right. Quoting that we are healed by His stripes is not enough to prove that we believe in divine healing.

As long as you do not believe it, quoting it may not work for you. It took some time before some could realize the truth in Luke 1:37. Until we are driven to the wall, some believers will not believe it. Each right or privilege does not just flaunt itself at you. You have to understand what it is all about from scripture. Identify the specific passages that deal with the issue. Know the conditions attached to its manifestation. Believe it. Thank God for it.

Ask for it. Stand on it. Insist on it in the face of opposition. Adopt it as your daily life-style. Obey all the Bible principles concerning it, etc. Are you trekking instead of riding a horse? The Lord will reverse that in Jesus’ Name.

As part of your physical and spiritual exercise, do a prayer walk; praying and walking some distances regularly.

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.

Bible interpretation of dreams

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

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.

You are being connected with the Alpha and Omega and the strength to continue and complete what you have started is being released to you now. Remember to thank Him and testify of it to His praise and glory. In the Name of Jesus, whatever is responsible for inability to continue that writing is broken now. Receive your release today. Worship the Alpha and Omega. You are free in Jesus’ Name.

The greatest treasure of any writer is the Alpha and Omega. Do you have Him?

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.
