Prayers: I shall not die, my Herods shall die!

Herod wished Jesus dead, but the Bible has this to say, those who seeking to kill Jesus are dead. In the same way, the forces wishing to kill your marriage, kill your ministry, kill your business, kill your job, kill your salvation, kill your life…they shall die in Jesus name

Mathew 3 vs 13:  Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”

Mathew 2 vs 1919 Now when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20 saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the young Child’s life are dead.” 21 Then he arose, took the young Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.

  1. Those wishing me dead, shall die in Jesus name
  2. I shall not spend Christmas in crutches in Jesus name.
  3. I refuse to honour any appointment with death in Jesus name
  4. The road, land, sea, and air shall not consume me in Jesus name

Crisis management: examples from Bible

How to handle crises situations: Lessons from Daniel

Read Daniel 2

Daniel and other wise men in Babylon faces a crisis situation. They were about to be slain but how did Daniel handled the situation and turned impending calamity to promotion?

How should we handle tough difficult crisis situations?

  1. Keep calm: When Daniel heard the news of his assassination, he was not exasperated, but was calm and composed – 13 – So the decree went out, and they began killing the wisemen; and they sought Daniel and his companions, to kill them.
  2. Pray for a mouth and wisdom. Daniel engaged his impending assassination with counsel and wisdom – 14 – Then with counsel and wisdom Daniel answered Arioch, the captain of the king’s guard, who had gone out to kill the wisemen of Babylon;
  3. Be patient. Do not be hasty. Take time to meditate on the solution. Daniel asked for time to come up with a solution. It may not be possible to solve tough problems overnight – 16 – So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation.
  4. Seek godly advice. In the multitude of counsel there is a solution. Daniel sought the advice of his friends. He did not consult unbelievers but his godly friends – 17 – Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, 
  5. Pray for God’s mercy – 18 –that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
  6. Petition God and pray for God’s intervention 19 – Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
  7. Remember to bless God with a gift offering when He solves your problem 20 – answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His.
  8. Remember to praise and worship God for giving you a solution 24 – Therefore Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to destroy the wisemen of Babylon. He went and said thus to him: “Do not destroy the wisemen of Babylon; take me before the king, and I will tell the king the interpretation.”
  9. Remember to give all the glory back to God – 28 – But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, were these:
  10. Lastly, don’t give into the devil. Daniel refused to die, cried to God and God turned his impending calamity to victory – 46 – Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him.

How to become great in life: Lessons from Daniel

You can become great in life by positioning yourself for greatness

Read Daniel 1 and 2

Daniel became great in a foreign land, by positioning himself for greatness.

  1. He was captured as a slave and taken to the house of Nebuchadnezzar, an idolatrous king – Daniel 1 vs. 2 – And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with some of the articles of the house of God, which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the articles into the treasure house of his god.Daniel Bible
  2. Even before King Nebuchadnezzar selected him for training, Daniel was gifted. He had all the qualities the King desired. The King requested for children of Israel who had specific qualities. If Daniel did not fulfill the criteria, he would not have been selected. Maybe thousands of Israelites were taken captive, but only few had the qualities the King wanted.

If God connect you to the presence of a King today, the King may not be able to help you, unless you have something to offer.

King Nebuchadnezzar wanted someone:

  • With no blemish – good moral upbringing
  • Well favoured – good character and relationship skillful
  • Wise
  • Knowledgeable
  • Understand science
  • Confident and bold
  • Teachable
  • Daniel 1 vs. 4 –young men in whomthere was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans.
  1. Though Daniel was give an idolatrous name, he refused to commit idolatry. No one can force you to commit evil – Daniel 1 vs. 7 – To them the chief of the eunuchs gave names: he gave Danielthe name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abed-Nego.
  2. Daniel purpose in his heart to remain holy. No one commits sin unintentionally – Daniel 1 vs. 8 – But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
  3. Daniel was favoured by God in the eyes of his captives, because he was righteous. Grace does not abound in sin. Daniel received favour from God because he refused to defile himself – Daniel 1 vs. 9 –Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs.
  4. God also gave Daniel special gift – interpreting dreams, wisdom and knowledge because he refused to defile himself – Daniel 1 vs. 17 – As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

Why do the righteous suffer and the wicked prosper?


One of the mysterious of life is the afflictions faced by God fearing, Bible reading, and Church going Christians; while the anti Christ, world loving, and unbelieving wicked prosper. God gives answers to this scenario in a conversation with Prophet Habakkuk.


Habakkuk 1 vs 1: O Lord, how long shall I cry,  And You will not hear?
Even cry out to You, “Violence!” And You will not save.

Habakkuk 1 vs 4: For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.righteous suffer

Habakkuk 1 vs 12: O Lord, You have appointed them for judgment;
O Rock, You have marked them for correction.

Why do the wicked prosper?

  1. There are times God refuses to listen to the cries of His people.
  2. There are times God refuses to save His people from the ‘wickedness of the wicked’ (Psalm 7 vs 9)
  3. There are times God allows the wicked to overcome the righteous.
  4. At times like this, the wicked has become a vessel in the hands of God, and an instrument to fulfil His plans for the righteous.

Why do the righteous suffer?

  1. The righteous may suffer as a punishment for past backsliding, especially if this happens after he has made a covenant of righteousness with God.
  2. The righteous may suffer as a judgement from God for things he (the righteous) have not done ‘right’.
  3. The righteous may suffer to make him a better Christian, to refine, and sharpen him in holiness.
  4. The righteous may suffer as a form of rebuke, and correct him in the way of holiness



  • I terminate every wickedness of the wicked in my life, in Jesus name
  • I receive the grace and power to live right in Jesus name

Reasons for unanswered prayers: Secret and hidden sins


There are many reasons for unanswered prayers, one of these is secret sin. There is a sin only known to you. Repent of it, otherwise it may cause afflictions in your life in future..The story of Rachel’s secret sin is a case in reference

Image result for secret sins

Read Genesis 31 vs 19: And Laban has gone to shear his sheep, and Rachel has stolen the images that are his father’s.

  1. There was a secret sin in the life of Rachel that was only known to her.
  2. She stole her father’s idol, and when her father searched for it, she sat on the idol and refused to get up, and said she was experiencing her menstrual cycle. (Genesis 31 vs 35)
  3. Rachel’s sin was three in One. She committed stealing by taking images that were not hers; she committed idolatry by having in her possession idols; and she committed lying by claiming she was undergoing her menses, actually she was not.
  4. What is the effect of secret sins? Rachel brought a curse upon herself. Her husband-Jacob who was totally unaware that Rachel her wife had stolen Laban’s idols, pronounced a curse of death on anyone found in possession of the idols: ‘With whosoever that findeth thy gods, let him not live’ –Genesis 31 vs 32.
  5. The curse waited for Rachel in the future, as she died prematurely, in pain, and hard labour as she gave birth to Benjamin-Genesis 35 vs 16-19.
  6. What are the secrets sins in your life that you have refused to confess to anybody? Is it adultery, stealing, masturbation, fornication, idolatry, or pornography?
  7. Rachel was a victim of her husband’s innocent curse. Of course God rubber stamp Jacob’s curse because He is a jealous God and had warned the Israelites against idolatry. If she had confessed her sin to at least her husband, maybe the story of Rachel would have been different. May God not become your enemy in Jesus name.
  8. Would you confess your sins to Jesus today, so that He can save you? And also save yourself the future repercussions of your sin?



  • Power of God, deliver me from my secret sins in Jesus name
  • Blood of Jesus, save me from my secret sins

Youth sermon: Service to God, Working for God

Ecclesiastes 12 vs 1:Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in.service to God

By  Nandak Nathaniel- Solomon,

  1. Most times, as youths we think God has given us the strength of the youthful age to satisfy our human desires, rather than God’s desires.
  2. There are several things competing for the attention of youths, but we must know our youthful strength and zeal is to work for God.
  3. Soon, age we catch on us, then we will have the zeal but not the strength to work for God, and you may be faced with regrets, saying ‘Had I known I would have worked for God when I was stronger’.
  4. It is wise to work for God when you have youthful strength, and He will turn your weaknesses to strength when you become aged.

Lessons from the Bible story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

Read Daniel 3
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego faced the option of worshiping Satan and live; or refuse to worship Satan and be put burnt to death. They opted for the latter and God intervened and they ended being promoted.

shadrach meshach abednego
What lessons can we learn from the story?
1. There is power in dedication. King Nebuchadnezzar organised a big ceremony and decided to dedicate his image god. Christians should learn to dedicate every of their belongings to the living God with pomp and pageantry.
• I cancel every evil dedication on your life and properties and rededicate your life, family, and businesses to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Jesus name
2. You should learn to worship God with all kinds of instruments. King Nebuchadnezzar brought out cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer and all kinds of musical instruments to worship idol god. How are we worshiping the living God today?
3. Don’t be ashamed to invite or bring your friends to Christ. Open your mouth and tell your friends about Jesus. Nebuchadnezzar brought all his associates to worship an image. He brought Princes, Governors, Captains, Judges, Counsellors, Sheriffs and Rulers of all the Provinces. How many of your colleagues, friends, business partners, associates, relations have you brought to Christ this year?
4. Don’t join the mob to do evil. Avoid negative peer pressure. Stand alone with God instead of joining the multitude to worship devil. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego decided to stand alone and apart from their colleagues – Judges, Princes, Treasurers, Sheriffs etc. who bowed to Satan
5. Be bold and courageous once you are on the right path. Don’t compromise your righteousness out of fear. Stand on what is right even if you are the only one standing.
6. Fear God, not the king. Fear God but honour the king. The three Jews decided to disobey the king’s order and please God rather than obeying the king’s order and displease God. Evil decrees that are contrary to the Bible should not be obeyed.
7. Hold on to God even to the point of death. The three Jews knew whom they believe and were ready to sacrifice their lives rather than deny their faith. How well do you trust God? How strong is your faith in Him?
8. If you hold on to God, He will fight for you. The man that threw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego into fire were all killed, while Jesus appeared inside the fire to protect his servants.
9. Jesus is always with you in your crises. Jesus appeared inside the fire to prevent his servants from becoming hurt. Jesus is appearing in the fire of a reader of this message today.
10. Unbelievers shall be converted to Christianity when you trust in God. Nebuchadnezzar became an Evangelist when he saw the power of faith.
11. There is a God in heaven who can change the evil decrees. Even Nebuchadnezzar confessed that the Almighty God has changed his word, only the Word of God changeth not.
12. Every test of faith and presentation of righteousness ends in divine promotion. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were meant to be roasted to death but they ended up being promoted.



I refuse to worship Satan!

Jesus, appear in my crises!

  1. It is obvious that God wants his children to come first, to be above, successful, and become leaders of men.
  2. The blessings of God are not mechanical.
  3. The blessings of God are conditional.
  4. You must obey the commandments of God, which simply means you must be a good practising, born again Christian.

How to deal with difficult father and mother in laws problems

There is hardly any marriage that does not have associated issues with mother and father in laws from both partners, but we need the wisdom of God and  Christian heart to handle this. Genesis 2 vs 24, is one of the several biblical verses that should guide couples on how to handle in laws relationship

Genesis 2 vs 24: Therefore shall man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.mother in law problems

The key points from this passage are:

  1. They man (and the woman) should be physically separated from his/her parents. If you marry and you still work in your fathers business (unless he has substantially handed it over to you), and you still reside in your parents’ house, then you are not yet separated from them. Once you marry, inherited businesses should be completely handed over to you, your parents should not be your Boss or employer, be your own Boss or start your own business.
  2. To some extent, the man (and the woman) should be emotionally separated from your parents. Once you marry, your partner- wife or husband comes first before your parents. If you love your parents more than your spouse, or you put your parents first, above your spouse and immediate family, then there is a problem.
  3. The Bible says, you must leave your parents, and cleave to your wife. So think more of your wife more than your parents. Love your wife more than your parents. Don’t take instructions from your parents, take instructions from your husband or wife. Your parents should only advise you, not dictate to you how you should run your family.
  4. Your parents are in a separate family, once you marry you have also started your own family.
  5. Lastly, the bible says the couple shall become one flesh in thoughts, planning, decisions, etc. As such both couples should work towards togetherness, mutual understanding, and unity of purpose


My father and my God, give me a good husband or wife in Jesus name

I shall not marry my enemy in Jesus name

Fire of God, repair my marriage in Jesus name

Essence of Christianity: What does it mean to follow Jesus?

soul winning evangelism

Mark 1 vs 17: “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

  1. The essence of Christianity is to primarily do the work of the Evangelist, every other thing becomes secondary.
  2. If you make yourself a follower of Christ, you should therefore be willing to trained by the Holy Spirit to bring others into following Christ.
  3. Following Jesus, without fishing for men is not an option, an act of disobedience, and may infact be a sin.
  4. Decide today not only to follow Jesus, but also to fish for men and women

I receive the grace to fish for the kingdom in Jesus name

Sermon: Return to God in repentance

Mathew 26 vs 56: Then all the disciples left him….

Just as in the days of old, many believers have abandoned the gospel for the world.

1. Christians have left the Bible for Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram and other social media.

2. Christians have stopped fellowship with God in prayers, they are not fellowshipping with Television and Movies.

3. Christians especially our children have left the Bible and embraced the mobile phone with all its distractions.

4.  Christians have left the altar of prayer for the altar of gisting and gossips.

5. We have left the word of God  for the word of men, as we no longer abide by the scriptures.

6. The church has left soul winning for members winning.

7. The Church has left God worship for Pastor worship

8.  The Church has left preaching about holiness and salvation, to preaching about how members can turn to millionaires and billionaires overnight.

9. The Church has left demonstrating God’s love to building business empires.

10. The Church has left the word for the money.

The spirit of God is calling for repentance.  Pray that the Holy Spirit draws you to Him again.

How to make your marriage work

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God- Ephesians 5 vs 21

mr and mrs babatope babalobiToday is my 19th year wedding anniversary, and on retrospect, I give thanks to God for giving me a happy home and a successful marital life, a lovely wife- Bukola Babalobi and godly children. This was my wish on August 3, 1996; and I have no regrets but joy in taking the marital vows, almost two decades ago.Thank God my marriage is working.
What makes a marriage work? I have made a compilation of tips for successful marriage based on my 19years experience; hoping this will benefit aspiring and younger couples.
1. The fear of God to me is the first and most important factor that contributes to a successful marriage. Both couples, particularly the husband should have the fear of God; which implies both couples should be born again Christians. In my counsel to younger people, I have always said marriages often run into crisis when either or both partners do not have the fear of God. I have always advised believers against marrying anyone who does not believe in the God you believe in, as both of you should drink from the same fountain.

It is the fear of God that leads the husband to love his wife; to be a responsible husband and father; it is the fear of God that prevents the man from extra marital affairs; it is the fear of God that keeps him in the house to work out the success of his marriage; it’s the fear of God that makes him to understand the sanctity of marriage and the need to keeps its covenant.

By the grace of God, I can openly boost of not knowing any other woman or not indulging in a single extra marital affair for the 19 years, in spite of my often long travels from my home. What has kept me in check is simply the fear of God that restrains me from indulging in sexual sin, not only against my wife, against my body, as well against my God.
On the part of the wife, it’s also the fear of God that keeps her in check; submitting to the husband as extolled by the scriptures; and avoiding acts that could risk the success of the marriage.
2. The second important factor for a successful marriage is the role of the Church. If both couples are Christians and associate with the body of Christ, the chances of marital crises are lower. The Church plays a moulding and balancing role in the lives of Christians. I regard the church as the most influential institution for Christian homes.

Marriage itself is instituted by God, and the church represents His body on earth. So what a good church does through its messages is to develop the character of the couples; and as they grow and develop in the Christian faith, the works of the flesh (anger, lying, pride, arrogance, greed, selfishness, sins etc) that often causes quarrels at homes gradually disappears. My wife spends a substantial part of her daily life in church related activities. Occasionally I complain, but I am also quick to realise that this keeps her in good godly company, away from negative peer pressure, gossips, and bad company.

3. The third important factor for me is Openness and Transparency. There should be no secrets between couples, knowing fully well both of you are one flesh. Evil thrives under secrecy. Secrecy breeds suspicions. By the grace of God, my wife and I both try to be as open as possible. My wife knows my salary, even all my children know my monthly salary, as I believe there is nothing to hide; and I spend it on things mutually agreed.

Every month, I sit down with her to do a budget, even before the salary hits the account. At the early years of the marriage, specifically in the 1990s, when she was the only person working, and on a monthly salary of Two thousand naira (N2000), she normally handed over the remaining N1800 to me to spend, after removing the tithe. My wife and I are joint signatories to all my accounts- personal and corporate. She knows the Pins of my ATMS, and I know hers.

An incident happened a couple of years ago, I traveled outside Nigeria. And as it is my normal practice, I handed over my phones to her as I did not want to miss my local calls. One of her colleagues at work was shocked, because her husband would never allow her to read his text messages or pick his calls even when he is at home. But this was a case of a man who handed his phones to the wife and traveled abroad.

Of course, if I have affairs, I would not allow my wife free access to my calls and messages. I make it a practice to disclose all my relationships to my wife including the few female colleagues I am close with in or out of work. Openness instills trust and strengthens the bond. Anything you can not disclose to your wife is evil.

4. The fourth factor is self-will and determination on the part of the couple to make the marriage work. God has given us the power of self will, the freedom to choose between right and wrong. You have to choose to be a faithful husband,a  responsible father and deliberately work towards achieving this.

If you don’t want to become a polygamist, then you have to stick to one wife. I choose to make my marriage work in spite of all challenges and weaknesses, and thank God it is working. When I visited United States for the first time in many years ago, I faced pressure from a close relation to stay back and elope with an arranged ‘wife’ in California to facilitate the legalization of a stay in US. But I  choose to respect the sanctity of marriage and returned back to Nigeria with its harsher economic realities. No one commits sin unintentionally, and the quality of our lives is the outcome of the decisions we have taken in the past.

5. Of course there are several other factors which time and space will not permit me to mention, the role of intense prayers and fasting, spiritual warfare and deliverance, the word of God, finance, extended family, faithfulness to God, etc

It has also not been a bed of roses. The first decade was particularly trying, but the grace of God was sufficient to overcome challenges.

6. I look at the future with greater confidence, believing my marriage like the path of the righteous shall be brighter and filled with more testimonies in Jesus name. At a time forces of darkness have unleashed attacks on Christian homes, my prayer is that our homes shall remain aglow radiating Gods love, faithfulness, grace, favour, deliverance, and mercy in Jesus name.

Solomon: Was King Solomon really a wise man or a foolish man?

Originally posted on Deliverance sermons and prayers:



King Solomon as a tragedy!




By Babatope Babalobi


The life of the famed King Solomon is a paradox. He poured his love on God early in his life, but later on devoted his heart to worshipping idols. He was on talking terms with God early in his life, but he spent his adulthood in conversations with Satan. God specifically promised Solomon that he would die at a good old age, but Solomon died at the age of about 60, which by all standards is premature. His kingdom was fully established in his hands when he ascended the throne, unfortunately the twilight of his reign was characterized by  intense opposition which eventually led to the balkanization of his kingdom.

Breakthrough prayers: O God of Israel, settle me now!

1 Peter 5:10King James Version (KJV)

10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

                                                  By Babatope Babalobi

1. There’s a reader of this message who wants God to settle him.

2. You may wish to be settled with a good husband or wife, the fruit of the womb, a good job, a befitting accommodation,  a house of your home,  visa for international travel, marital peace, good health, or deliverance from sin.

3. Perharps you have been crying for years, praying earnestly to God to seetle you.

4. The good news is that God does settle His children.

5. However, there’s a price to be paid,  a path to tread, a principle to be followed, and an exam to be passed before God can settle you 

6. Let’s examine 1 Peter 5 vs 10 critically….You will discover that there are four things that must happen before God settles you. First, you must suffer. Second, you must be perfected. Third, you must be established. Fourth,  you must be strengthened.

7. You must suffer. Do you want God to settle you?  Then you must ready to suffer for a while. You must suffer in prayer and fasting. You must suffer in memorising the word of God. You must suffer in denying yourself the pleasures of sin. You must suffer in living a life of holiness. You must suffer in avoiding ill gotten treasures. You must suffer in being denied, ridiculed,  and mocked by the world. You must suffer in carrying the cross of Christ. Unfortunately,  most people want to be divinely blessed without going through the School of suffering, which accounts for there inability to advance forward in their christian life .

My prayer for you today is that you shall emerge victoruious in the School of divine suffering in Jesus name 

8. You must be perfected.  Do you want God to settle you ? Then you must be ready to be perfected. You must be perfected to drop your old man. You must be perfected to produce the fruits of the spirit. You must be perfected to kill your flesh and die to self. You must be perfected to think of the word rather than the world. You must be perfected to start investing in heaven, rather than on worldly things.  You must be perfected  to cut off your old habits…anger, impatient, gossip,  lying, lust, envy, etc You must be perfected to become a saint. Unfortunately,  most Christians want to receive miracles and breakthroughs without going through the School of perfection. No wonder, they are yet to be settled by God.

I pray for you again that you shall become a lamb without blemish in Jesus name.

9. You must be established. Do you want God to settle you? Then you must be established as a Christian. Are you merely a church goer or a servant of God? Are you merely a follower of Jesus or a disciple of Jesus? What are you doing for God? Are you  merely a recruit soldier in the Army of Christ or a Combatant soldier? How many souls have you won for Christ this year? What are you doing for God that brings joy to the kingdom? Beloved, you must be established as a dependable, fruitful,  reliable servant of Christ before God can focus on you for divine settlement. Yet again unfortunately, most Christians are not willing to pass through the School of establishment; they remain feeding bottle, ice cream christians all there life not doing anything for the kingdom of God. Alas, God also refuses to settle them as they have no value to the kingdom.

I pray for you again,  that you shall be valuable in the sight of God in Jesus name.

10. You must be strengthened. Do you want God to seetle you? Then you must be strengthened by the Holy Spirit to receive divine settlement. The Bible says in that day the burden shall be lifted up and the yoke shall be broken because of the annoiting. It is the annoiting of God that strengthens you spiritually making you a candidate of divine settlement. How long do you pray in the Spirit daily? Five minutes, ten, thirty, one hour? How long can you do personal worship. Beloved, unless the power of God falls on you and strengthens you to break the evil bondages and cages, your divine settlement may not materialise. Unfortunately, most Christians are too lackadaisical,  too gentle for the devil , and too cold to face their adversary who is a roaring lion. You must pass through the School of spiritual strength before you can receive divine settlement.

I pray once again for you that the fire of God shall fall on you today in Jesus name

Deliverance prayers: My life shall not be wasted! I waste wasting powers!

The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill , and to destroy.  I have come that they may have life and that they might have it more abundantly – John 10 vs 10.

I woke up this morning with a dream, in which I saw a mob pursuing a thief. Some soldiers joined in the hot pursuit; eventually  the mob  and soldiiers caught up with the thief and he was lynched.  In the dream, I saw the thief gasping for breath, and dying.

The Holy Spirit then told me : ‘This man has just wasted his life’

As I woke up from bed, I meditated on the incident, and the Holy Spirit gave me the understanding that, just as the thief in the dream wasted his life, a lot of people are indulging in activities that is turning  their lives into a waste!

1. You could waste you life by smoking, which would eventually develop into cancer of the lungs, terminating your life prematurely.

2. You can decide to waste your life through drug addiction, knowing fully well that this is injurious to your health and will trigger a wide range of sicknesses.

3. You could decide to waste your life by compulsive love for alcoholic drinks such as strong wine and beer, which would destroy your liver or kidney over  a period of time, leading to premature death.

4. You could decide to waste your life by running after strange women, and no  matter how careful you are, you might one day contact sexually transmitted diseases leading you to the grave prematurely.

5. Are you indulging in risky behaviours such as excessive  speeding without using seat beats, travelling in canoe  or boats on rivers  without using life jackets, walking in lonely places at night etc……then your life may end up a waste.

6. You are on the way to wasting your life if you indulge in unhealthy eating habits such as eating too much of sugary,  carbohydrates and fatty foods, which may turn you into a diabetic patient sooner or later.

7. You may be on the path to wasting your life if you indulge in negative lifestyles. Are you easily angered, worried, anxious, hot tempered… it as high blood pressure and hypertension may soon knock at the door of your heart.

8. Your life can be wasted if your destiny is not fulfilled,  if you refuse to redeem the time, if out of laziness you refuse to work hard to end a living …ending up  in poverty,  if you become corrupted by bad friends, etc

Just as physical factors could cause you to waste your life, there are also spiritual forces waiting to waste your life.

1. You could allow your life to be wasted by the forces of evil, if out of spiritual ignorance you refuse to indulge in spiritual warfare…If you fail to resist  the devil so that he can flee away. James 4 vs 7.

2. You could consciously allow your life and destiny to be wasted by dark powers, because of your own spiritual laziness ; if you refuse to fast and pray always as enjoined by  -1 Thessalonians 5 vs 7.

3. Your life may end up a waste if you sleep and snore every night allowing the enemy to catch up with you and afflict you at night; whereas Jesus has warned that the enemy of your life is waiting to harm you as you lie down to sleep.  Mathew 13 vs 25.

4. Are you hot for Jesus today and hot for Satan tomorow? Satan may not allow you to become hot again for Jesus as he could decide to waste you suddenly.

5. You could allow your life to be wasted if you refuse to stand up to execute judegment on the Pharaohs that   has put in bondages,   if you refuse to behead the Goliaths that want to kill you,  and if you refuse to kill the Herods that want you dead.

My prayer for you today is that your life shall not be wasted in Jesus name, the powers that are planning to waste your life shall be wasted,  and the physical and spiritual forces that are waiting to catch up with you,  like the mob caught up with the thief in the dream, these wasting forces shall be wasted in Jesus.

My prayer for you is that you shall fulfill destiny in Jesus name.

Bible sermon : I need God’s blessings

‘God bless you’ is a common refrain, and everyone desire to be blessed by God  one way or the other.

But the Bible in Revelation 1 vs 3 lists three conditions that must be fulfilled to receive a divine blessing.

Blessed is he that readeth,  and they that hear  the words of prophecy, and keep  those things which are written therein : Revelation 1  vs 3

1. READ THE WORD..You should read and meditate on the word of God. How often do you read the Bible.?  If you want God to bless you daily, then read the Bible daily.  If you are not familiar with the word of God, you are a stranger in the kingdom, and there are limited blessings for strangers. The closer you are to God, the more he will give you spiritual and physical gifts.

2. HEAR THE WORD.. do you want God to bless you.? Then you must always tune in to the Radio and Television stations of heaven.  How do you achieve this? You need to continually hear the word of God through tapes, CDs,  messages, and of course being in the presence of God through Church services. Most of us spend more time in watching worldly films, movies,  and music than in the presence of God. You can’t be blessed by God if you physical and spiritual antennae is tuned most times to worldliness, pubs, club houses, etc

3. KEEP THE WORD…The third condition  of divine blessings is that you must adhere to the word of God. There is no short cut to breakthroughs or salvation . You can’t be blessed by indulging in sin. You need to familiarise yourself with the word of God through steps 1 and 2 above and keep it. As you do so blessings gs shall roll in automatically in Jesus name

Heaven and hell: Are you truly saved when you love ones are not saved?

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire..Revelation 20 vs 15

When was the last time you interceded for  a sinner?

When was the last time  you interceded with prayer and fasting for an unsaved soul in your family?
When was the last time you preached about heaven and hell to someone or to your congregation?

Would you be a happy man  in heaven while your loved ones are in hell?

1.  You may be saved, but are your children saved? Your children stand the risk of being cast into lake of fire unless you act today.
2.   Is your spouse saved? Your wife or husband may spend eternity in hell fire unless you pray and fast for his/her salvation today.
3.  Are your parents saved in Christ? You would definitely not be a happy in heaven while your parents sorrow in hell for eternity.
4. What of your friends and neighbours?  Do you care where they spend eternity?

Bible commentary on Philippians 4 vs 19.

Do you what God to supply all your needs, then meet the needs of God’s Kingdom. 

Memorise: Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. – Philippians 4:17

Read: Philippians 4:14-19

14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Bible In One Year: 2 Chronicles 9:29-12:16; Luke 22:39-62


If you are enjoying God’s love, you must be ready to give something in return to him as a demonstration of your love for Him. This was demonstrated by the church at Philippi in today’s Bible reading. Paul reported that they were the only ones who stood with him during the period of his trial and need. After he left Macedonia, some churches used that as an excuse not to support him anymore, but not the brethren at Philippi. Even after he travelled to Thessalonica, they repeatedly sent provisions to meet his need there. Today, some people still hide under the cover of distance to shy away from showing love through giving. They would say “You are so far away and that is why it is so difficult to send assistance to you.” If it is difficult to send assistance now, it was much more difficult to do so then. As challenging as it was then, the brethren in Philippi found a way around the difficulties and supported Paul. They knew what they were doing. They become a major financial backbone of the ministry of Paul. Paul declared that by virtue of their being so sacrificial in giving, he was full, having all his needs met. It was based on this that he prayed that God would supply all their needs in Philippians 4:19.

Just as you have needs, so does God have needs. If you can meet Gods needs, He will surely meet yours. The project of expending God’s kingdom on earth has needs. There is therefore a need to support anymore or any cause that is dedicated to meeting these needs. Why did Paul not pray the same prayer for the other churches? It is because a person has the responsibility to provoke the blessings that come to him or her as an individual, family or church. Before you expect so much from God, ask yourself what you have done to provoke what you are expecting. As revealed in Philippians 4:17, know that everyone has an account with God:

“Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.”

Everything you give to God grows that account. It is when your account is full that your harvest will come. The church at Philippi got their harvest. What about you? What have you given to God in demonstration of your love for Him? What contributions have you made to grow your local parish and meet their needs? How have you met the needs of your pastor and his family?

Key Point: Can your Church say it has no needs as a result of your care?

Prayers against sudden death: My life shall not be robbed!

John 10:10 records Jesus saying, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full


“The hole made by burglars that robbed my house this morning as my family and I were away worshiping God in the church. My iPad, Apple MacPro laptop and many other valuable items were stolen. Be careful in case the thieves are able to access my mailboxes, Facebook accounts and other Internet data. Thanks” – Pastor Bayo Afolaranmi

Pastor Bayo Afolaranmi, an Internet Ministry Officer of the Nigerian Baptist Convention posted this entry on his facebook page yesterday. As I read it, the ministration I had is that this is the ministry of the thief that Jesus talks about in John 10 vs 10; Praise God the thief only robbed his physical properties, his soul and that of his children were not robbed. The Holy Spirit ministered these prayers to share with the brethren:

  1. Powers planning to rob my life, I kill you in Jesus name
  2. I kill killing powers and and destroy destroying powers in Jesus name.
  3. Dark powers assigned to cut down my life, I cut you down in Jesus name.
  4. Spiritual robbers of souls, my life is not available for you in Jesus name.
  5. Physical and Spiritual robbers assigned against me, be arrested in Jesus name
  6. I pursue, overtake, and recover all good virtues robbed from me in Jesus name.
  7. I kill every robber of my blessings in Jesus name.

These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and there are several lessons we can learn from this passage:

  1. The first lesson we learn from this passage is that there is an enemy.
  2. The second lesson is that the enemy comes when we are sleeping
  3. The third lesson we learn from this passage is that Christians sleep too much, and that is the greatest lesson from this passage. Jesus Christ describes Christian as men. Men are supposed to watch and pray, Men are supposed to be alert, not sleeping and snoring.
  4. The third lesson is that enemy comes to pollute and contaminate the spirit of man.
