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…..watch 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

MESSAGE:

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.

Matthew 13 vs. 25      But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

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.
  5. The fourth lesson is that the enemy comes to…

Bible commentary om Rev. 3 vs 20 : Here I am , I stand by the door and knock

Rev. 3 vs. 20:  Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

download (6)

What are the lessons of this verse?

  1. Jesus wants to save you, that’s why he is standing by the door of your heart.
  2. Jesus have been standing at the door of your heart, since your birth; you might have served God before and have not backslidden. He is saying, Here I am to receive you back to me, if only you can repent.
  3. Jesus does not force himself on anyone; he cannot force himself into your heart; that’s why he is waiting for you to open your heart to accept him.
  4. Jesus is eager to receive you to his kingdom that is why he is standing not sitting, though the act of standing is more stressful. It shows he is ready to sacrifice and endure pain in order to receive you to his kingdom. How long would you keep Jesus standing
  5. You have closed your hearts to his words, and he wants you to open it now for him.
  6. Jesus could not come into your heart, because someone else- Satan has occupied your heart. Why not cast Satan out of your heart, and allow Jesus to come in now? Rev. 3 vs. 20: Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
  7. Jesus says if anyone hears my voice…meaning Salvation is for everyone and anyone. No matter the gravity of your past sins, Jesus is willing to forgive you if you come to him in repentance.
  8. Jesus says if anyone hears my voice…meaning it is possible to hear Gods voice or the devil’s voice. Which voice have you been obeying?
  9. Jesus says if you open the door, he will come in…meaning salvation is a freewill. The decision to serve Jesus or Satan is your choice.
  10. Lastly Jesus promises a marriage supper of the Lamb if you accept him as Lord and Savior. There is rest, joy, and peace with Jesus. If you open your heart for him he will give you abundant life. Jesus is not calling you to poverty, rather he wants to save you and bear your burdens.
  11. Would you invite Jesus into your heart today?

Commentary Job 22 vs 28: Secret to answered prayers

Read Job 22 vs 26 – 28: 26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. 27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. 28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

  1. Many of us merely quote Job 22 vs 28, on the power Christians have to decree a thing, but the earlier three verses show that there are conditions to be met before our prayers can be answered.
  2. First, you should delight in the Lord by meditating on His word day and night, doing what pleases Him, and always fellow shipping with Him.- Verse 26
  3. Second, you need to trust in Him, see Him as your helper, and run to Him for deliverance Vs 26.download (2)
  4. Third, you need to pray to God until something happens Vs 27.
  5. Fourth, you need to pay your vows. Are you owning God debts, they pay it up. Vs 27
  6. But for me, the most important condition is ‘having thy delight in the Almighty’. If you have a good relationship with God, He will answer you before asking.
  7. Do you want to walk in the supernatural and have the power to decree prayers to reality? First step is starting  a relationship with God, by giving your life to Christ now.

Bible commentary on 1 Corinthians 3 vs 16: Christians as temples of God

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you1 Corinthians 3 vs 16

Being the temple of God, means being His representation, His image, His living church, His glory, and His Holiness. Of course, you can not be a temple of God without the spirit of God living inside you.

Do you wish to be a temple of God, then become born again. Do you wish to remain a temple of God, then avoid these things.

Things to avoid as a Temple of God

  1. Avoid lying- The temple of God should reflect the truth.
  2. Avoid sexual perversion- Fornication, Adultery, Pornography, Homosexuality, Masturbation. The spirit of God inside you will not join you to sleep with a woman not your wife.
  3. Dress well- Your dressing should be modest, add to your beauty, and glorify God.
  4. Don’t Tattoo your bodies- You are the image of God, don’t deface your body with other images.
  5. Avoid evil- Take control of your heart, and cast out wicked thoughts as they come.
  6. Feed your Spirit- The spirit of God inside your needs to be feed from time to time, with the word of God, godly music, and godly movies.
  7. Avoid Anger- the Spirit of God is meek, watch your tongue, avoid anger, provocation, bless don’t curse etc
  8. Avoid evil company- Watch where you go. Before going anyway, ask yourself, would the spirit of God like to be with me in this place? Flee from ungodly places. Don’t go where Jesus will not go.
  9. Avoid fear- You are a temple of God, you cannot be destroyed by Satan. Avoid fear of sudden death, accident, assassination etc. The spirit of God inside you will keep you from all harm.
  10. Be a good Christian- You are a carrier of God’s spirit. There is God in you, let your character show forth His praises.

Should students or children pay tithes?

But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth- Deuteronomy 8 vs 18

About three decades  ago, my Late father was furious with my elder brother because the latter decided to pay  tithes out of the N500 (five hundred naira) bursary awarded my brother by the the Oyo State Government.

My brother was then a student of the University of Ibadan. The argument of my father was that the bursary was not an earned income, and   my elder brother should have devoted it wholly to his expenses on the campus, especially when the family was then in dire financial straits.

Thirty years later, I faced a similar situation.  I normally send pocket money to my son who is an undergraduate of a Nigerian university. Yesterday, he phoned to inform me that he had spent about one third of his pocket money I sent to him few days ago (for the month of May 2015) for church related expenses, including of course, a tithe of the pocket money. The implication of e this is that, I have to send more money before the end of the month, as the church related expenses have eaten into his pocket money.

I did not know how best to respond when he gave me this information. I remembered the situation my late father faced and wondered whether my father (in retrospect) was right or wrong. My first reaction was to inform my son that if he decides to spend the money meant for his feeding and books on church related expenses, then that should be his own business.

But I restrained myself and meditated on the situation. Should I encourage my son to tithe from the pocket money I give him?

I finally decided that I should not discourage him. Though the money he is tithing from is not his earned income, it is a financial increase for him, for which he should remember his Creator in line with Deuteronomy 8 vs 18.

More importantly, it is good to train our children on how to tithe from an early age. When they grow up and start to earn income, they will not have any problem tithing. In any case, tithes should not be paid only from earned income, but an financial increase coming to us. So, in my son case, the pocket money I sent to him represented a financial increase.

In any case, I thought I should not discourage him from building a personal relationship with God.

Also as a friend  counselled, the underlying principle of giving to God, is an expression of God’s love towards God…and any child who is old enough to recognize that and wishes to express it should not be discouraged, but can be guided.

Nepal earthquake:Nepalese, where are thy gods?

                                                 By Babatope Babalobi

Deuteronomy 28:

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lordthy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

59 Then the Lord wImage result for nepal earthquakeill make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

63 And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

  1. The major global news this past week is the earthquake in Nepal, an Asian countr,  that has led to the death of over 6000 people and left over 12000 people homeless as of today.
  2. When tragedies of this magnitude happen, it is common to question the place of God, and  ask why He has allowed such an occurrence.
  3. Though natural disasters occur in both christian and non christian nations, the promises of the scriptures are still clear..in the mist of these calamities, God will still divinely protect His people from harm.
  4. The case of Nepal is however peculiar. Christians represent less than 1% of the Nepalese population which most being Hindus.
  5. I visited Nepal in 2007, and was amazed to find Hindu shrines in almost every corner, every home, every office, every hotel, every public and every private place.
  6. There are also several hundreds of Hindu temples located all over the country, with reports showing most of them destroyed by the recent earthquake.
  7. The recent earthquake is God’s mockery and judgement on widespread  idolatry in Nepal. The millions of  Hindu shrines and hundreds of  Hindu temples have failed to save their adherents.
  8. But even in the midst of these, Christians should demonstrate God’s love to the victims, intercede for God’s mercy, and pray that the eyes of the people of Nepal should be opened to the foolishness of serving man made gods.

  4. Pray always- Prayers is communicating with God, but the prayers of someone who wants God to delight in Him is not about murmuring, grumbling, or only about asking. If you pray more in the spirit, you would definitely be praying more according to the will of God.
  5. Praise God–  Sing to the Lord in hymns, songs, and worship
  6. Be an Abel- If you are frugal towards the things of God, you should not expend God to delight in you. Abel gave a fat offering, and the Lord has respect for his offering.
  7. Trust and Obey– Faith pleases God, and Obedience to divine instructions makes you a man after Gods heart.
