And God blessed them

Genesis 1 vs. 28 – Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” NKJV

There are several lessons of this passage

  1. You have been blessed by God before you were born
  2. If God has blessed you no man can curse you
  3. God gave you five commandments for your life
  • Be fruitful
  • Multiply
  • Fill the earth
  • Subdue it
  • Have dominion.

Image result for Genesis 1 vs. 28

  1.   Be fruitful: Fruitfulness means being productive. Fruitfulness means doing something profitable. Fruitfulness means being a blessing to yourself, your family and to others.
  • I curse every seed of unfruitfulness in your life and speak to the labour of your hands to bear fruits in Jesus name.
  1.   Multiply: Multiplication is geometric increase. The mind of God for us is not to increase in numbers by two or three but to multiply in leaps.

When Jesus turned the bread meant for one person into food eaten by five thousand with leftovers, the power of multiplication was at work.

  • I provoke the divine power of multiplication to manifest in your situation in Jesus name.
  • I speak woe to the spirit of snail speed over your life, and command a speedy increase in Jesus name.
  1.   Fill the earth: Filling the earth means our star should shine across the earth to the glory of God. Christians are supposed to be champions rather than losers, players rather than spectators, news makers rather than news readers. We need to work hard, be productive and pray towards achieving this goal.
  • I speak success, excellence and distinction to every work of your hands and break limits and restrictions to your divine manifestation in Jesus name
  1.   Subdue: Subdue means we need to overcome challenges. We need to overcome storms. We need to break the chains of oppression and walk in liberty. This calls for divine knowledge, understanding and wisdom.

David  was able to subdue Goliath. God is calling us to subdue sin, subdue poverty, subdue sickness and subdue failure.

  • I pray that the anointing to subdue every contrary situation shall fall on us in Jesus name.

 

  1.   Dominate: Christians are meant to be Kings and Queens. Dominion means comfort, splendour, peace, joy and victory. Christians are Christ ambassadors on earth and overcomers or conquerors; as such we should manifest these divine attributes.
  • The impartation to dominate life challenging situations, receive it today in Jesus name.

Before a Christian can fulfil these divine attributes – Replenish, Multiply, Subdue and Dominate, he/she has to be a child of God.

I encourage you to dedicate and surrender your life to Christ today, flee from all sins, live in complete holiness, serve God and as you do that, divine power to multiply, replenish, subdue and dominate shall fall on you in Jesus name.

I will serve the Lord

Posted on Updated on

Exodus 23 vs 25: And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy read and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee

Joshua 24 vs. 15 – And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD

What is service to God?

  1. Service to God is key to prosperity.
  2. Service to God is the key to divine health
  3. Service to God is key to open heavens
  4. Service to God is the key to divine protection
  5. Service to God is secret to hearing from God
  6. Service to God is the key to divine provision

Those that served the Lord in the Bible

  1. Dorcas, a woman full of full of good works and alms deeds which she did
  2. The Apostles

 What Happens when you serve the Lord?

  1. If you serve the Lord, you will receive a net breaking miracle. Peter gave out His boat to serve the Lord and He caught net breaking fishes.

Simon Peter received a net-breaking miracle and you can follow his principle to receive such a miracle. Luke 5 vs 1-5- Peter believed the word. “At thy word, I will let down the net” – 5 – And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net.

  1. If you serve the Lord, you will experience the power of resurrection. ..Dorcas was raised from the death because of her service to God-Acts 9:36-41
  2. If you serve the Lord, your head will not reject prayers of Saints, as God will honour prayers said for you. God honoured the prayers of Peter, when he prayed the Dorcas should Arise from the death. Acts 9 vs 40- But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
  3. If you serve the Lord, you will bear fruit in old age. Service to the Lord is an investment and insurance for old age. 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 them;
  4. If you serve the Lord, God will bless every work of your hand- Exodus 23 vs 25: And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy read and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee 
  5. If you serve the Lord, God will shield you from sicknesses. If you are valuable in the hands of the Lord, HE will not allow you to be wasted by sicknesses- Exodus 23 vs 25: And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy read and thy water, and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee
  6. If you serve the Lord, God will make a covenant of prosperity with you and always provide your needs-Job 36 vs 11If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure
  7. If you serve the Lord, you will never be stranded in life

Isaiah 54 vs 14- 17 – In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. 16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

 

  1. If you serve the Lord, God will establish you
  2. If you serve the Lord, you will not be oppressed day or night. God commands angels to protect His servants
  3. If you serve the Lord, you will be delivered from fear, God will give you peace of mind
  4. If you serve the Lord, God will mark you for divine protection from terrorists and criminals. You can never be kidnapped, assassinated if you serve the Lord
  5. If you serve the Lord, Evil conspiracy against you will backfire
  6. If you serve the Lord, Your accusers shall be put to shame and silenced
  7. If you serve the Lord, No weapon forged against you shall prosper
  8. If you serve the Lord, Every tongue against you shall be silenced

 

Isaiah 54 vs 14- 17

14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

  1. God will reward you. Hebrews 11 vs 6 – But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
  2. God will prepare mansions for you in heaven

Colossians 3 vs 24 – Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

  1. You will never lack

Mathew 6 vs 33 – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

 

How to serve the Lord?

  1. Service to the Lord goes beyond be a church goer.
  2. Service to God means being a labourer for the Lord.
  3. Service to God means being a harvester for God
  4. Service to God is soul winning
  5. Doing the work of an evangelist
  6. Doing the work of a missionary
  7. Using your talent, skills, gifts, time, resources, money to promote and expand the kingdom of God
  8. Every labour you do for the Lord should end up directly or indirectly in winning souls. Any Christian activity that you engage in that does not result directly or indirectly in soul winning is a waste of time, energy, and fruitless. It is not a service to the Lord.
  9. Many Christians are serving Pastors through eye service for positions and rewards rather than serving God.

 

Choose this day whether to serve the Lord

Joshua 24 vs. 15 – And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

  1. In the New Testament, on the day of Pentecost, the Bible recalls that the apostles were visited with the fire of God. They were filled with the spirit of God and they started speaking in new tongues. Therefore, when the spirit of God falls upon you, you will speak in a new language.

Acts of Apostles 2 vs 1– And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

  1. When the spirit of God fell upon Prophet Ezekiel, God opened his eyes and he was able to see the glory of God

Ezekiel 3 vs 12: Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place

  1. Jesus Christ Himself testify that it was because of the spirit of the Lord that is upon Him that he’s able to preach the gospel, heal the sick, deliver the captives, give sight to the blind and give liberty to those who are in captivities

Mathew 3 vs 16.  16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him oppressed, Luke 4 vs. 8

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

  1. It was this same spirit of God that fell upon Philip taking him away in the wild wind and dropping him in another location.

Acts 8 vs 39 –  When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing.

 

Why do we need the Holy Spirit?

  1. Do you need power in your Christian word, then you need the Holy Spirit. The spirit gives spiritual power enabling His carriers to become spirit champions, Acts 1 vs. 8

  9. The Holy Spirit gives you the spirit of wisdom, understanding, knowledge and direction, Isaiah 11 vs. 2
  10. When the Holy Spirit falls upon you, you become an evangelist, bold, and willing to preach the gospel, to rebuke sin and preach holiness to all the ends of the earth. Micah 3 vs. 8, Luke 4vs. 18
  11. The Holy Spirit gives you the power to overcome temptation. If you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you cannot backslide or fall into sin. If you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will be able to withstand all the temptations of the devil.
  12. If Jesus Christ has not received the Holy Spirit at river Jordan, He would not have been able to withstand the temptation of Satan in the wilderness. Luke 4 vs. 1
  13. The Holy Spirit cancels your losses and bring to pass something that seems hard, impossible and beyond comprehension. Mary a virgin conceived without union with a man.
  14. The Holy Spirit enables you to speak in a language of the spirit, Acts 2 vs. 4

 

How do you receive the Holy Spirit?

What is difference between Spirit, Soul, and Body?

Posted on Updated on

By Overcomer Babalobi

Genesis 2:7And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

  1. Man is made of the dust(body), the breath of God(spirit). and the mind of God(soul).
  2. The most important in the three is my spirit because it’s what makes me alive.
  3. The spirit is like the unseen current in the electrical wire. The soul is the power of the current, and the body is the wire itself and its covering, which is useless when it does not have electrical energy
  4. I must not forget to take develop my spirit, which is by praying, fasting, worshiping God always, by reading is word, and complete holiness.
  5. God relates not with our soul or body, but our spirit.
  6. Before i can deeply and successfully walk with God I must kill my flesh by avoiding worldliness and carnality.

Prayer

  • My spirit, receive fire in Jesus name
  • My body die to sin in Jesus name

Why God does not answer my prayers?

Posted on

Isaiah 65 vs 24: And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

  • God may not answer your specific prayer because He has given you a response before; and He is wondering why you are praying again on the matter.
  • God may not answer you because, He knows you will not like, accept, or believe His response, most likely because you have made up your mind on what to do; and you only want God to rubber stamp your desires.
  • If you involve in evils, wickedness, and idolatry, God says he will not hear your prayers.

Isaiah 65:17 - NIV - “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor wi...

Isaiah 1 vs. 14-15 –  hate your new moon festivals and your appointed feasts,They have become a burden to Me;I am weary of bearing them.“So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you;Yes, even though you multiply prayers,I will not listen.Your hands are covered with blood.

Isaiah 59 vs. 2Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.-Sin.

Willful sin. Isaiah 59 vs. 2But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

God may not answer because of your sin. The prayers of a sinner is an abomination to God.

  • Read Genesis 31 vs 19: And Laban has gone to shear his sheep, and Rachel has stolen the images that are his father’s.
  • There was a secret sin in the life of Rachel that was only known to her.
  • 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)
  • 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.
  • 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?
  1. If you have any material, article or item that belong to Satan, it becomes a legal ground for Satan to attack you. You need to search your house or office and get rid of any satanic possession in your life. It could be a charm, instrument, photo, amulet, medicine or textual material.

 

Joshua 7 vs. 13 – Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

  • Holy Spirit reveal to me any accursed object in my possession in Jesus name.
  1. Idolatry is always a cause of unanswered prayers. Have you consulted an herbalist, a false prophet, a magician, an occult, or practice witchcraft in the past? Unless you repent and cut-off your evil past, God will shut His ears from your prayers.

 11 Kings 17 vs. 17&18 – 17They sacrificed their sons and daughters in the fire. They practiced divination and sought omens and sold themselves to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger.  18So the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them from his presence. Only the tribe of Judah was left

  1. God may not answer you because he wants to test your patience. If you want a response in a hurry, He may decide to keep silent to build your patience in patience.
  2. God may not answer you because he want you to pass through a wilderness or long suffering experience. This will end up building your christian faith and increasing your testimonies.
  • Genesis 16 vs 1 – Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children
  • Genesis 20 vs 7 –  And Abraham prayed unto God and God healed Abimelech and his wife, and his maidservants and they bare children
  • Genesis 21 vs 1 – For Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son in his old age at the set time of which God has spoken to him
  • There are some prayers that remain unanswered because God has refused to answer them.
  • Sarai, the wife of Abraham was barren, yet Abraham was a perfect man before God.
  • Sarai, the wife of Abraham was barren, yet the same Abraham prayed for Abimelech wives and maidservants who were barren, and they conceived and bore children; but the prayer of Abraham for his wife remained unanswered.

 

  •  Murderer, abortion. – Isaiah 59 vs. 3 – For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
  •  Lies. Isaiah 59 vs. 3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
  •  Partiality. Isaiah 59 vs.4None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
  • Worldliness. Isaiah 59 vs. 4None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
  • Evil conspiracy. Isaiah 59 vs. 4None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
  • Wickedness. Isaiah 59 vs. 5They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
  • Crime and violence. Isaiah 59 vs. 6Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

 

  1. Evil thoughts. Isaiah 59 vs. 7Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
  2. Troublesomeness. Isaiah 59 vs. 8The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
  3. Disobedience. Isaiah 59 vs. 13In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
  4. Deceit. Isaiah 59 vs. 13In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
  5. Prayerlessness. Isaiah 59 vs. 16And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
  6. Tiredness in the altar of prayer – Luke 18 vs. 1 – And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint
  7. Inconsistency in prayer, ON and OFF prayer life – Luke 18 vs. 1 – And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
  8. Lame prayers, unaggressive prayers. God does not answer prayers of gentleman, but those that cry like Violent soldiers – Luke 18 vs. 7 – And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
  9. Failure to pray DAY and NIGHT. You must combine the two – Luke 18 vs. 7 – And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
  10. God may not answer you because you have not prayed hard enough. You dont only need to ask, you have to seek and knock before your prayers could be answered.
  11. God may not answer your prayers because he has allowed Satan to block your prayers as a way of testing your trust and faith in Him. As you remain in faith, He will surely answer you

Matthew 37 vs.46 – And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

  • Quite often at times, we often found ourselves in situation that seems God does not hear our prayers. No matter how much we prayed, fasted or worship
  • In this case, even Jesus Christ complained that God has forsaken Him.
  • Those observing Him were also mocking. “He trusted in God, let Him deliver Him now” (vs. 43).
  • In such situation, God expects us to be still and He will manifests Himself as the Lord.
  • God may not answer you because he has really answered you before through dreams, visions, a message, or a word; but you could not interpret or discern
  • God may not answer your prayers, because it is not yet the appointed time.
  • God may not answer your prayers because, granting your request is against His will or it may lead to your spiritual destruction
  • God may decide to forsake you if devil has legal ground to afflict you.

Prayer

  • Mercy of God, replace judgment of God over my life in Jesus name.

Posted on

 

                                  Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

 

Philippians 4 vs 6-7 – 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Mathew 6 vs 25:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Psalm 55:22-22 Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you;

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Be bold in the Lord. Don’t fear the enemy (vs. 6) – And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

Submit to God and obey His will (vs. 7)And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.

Power of prayer

Read Luke 9 vs. 28-36 – 28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

MESSENGER OR MESSAGE?

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8)

Read: Isaiah 40:6-8

In 2 Kings 5:9-12, when Naaman eventually got to the house of Elisha, he felt too big to enter. He stayed outside and waited for the man of God to come and meet him. However, Elisha sent a messenger to him, instructing him on what to do to be cured of his leprosy.

Naaman was furious. He felt humiliated. ‘Who does this so-called prophet think he is anyway? Has he not heard of my name? He feels too big to come out to attend to me, and finally sent a messenger’, he wondered. He decided to return to Syria! Whenever God sends a message through a messenger, one is more important than the other.

The message is God’s Word. God’s Word is the same as God (John 1:1). Therefore God’s Word is more important than the messenger or vessel through whom it is sent. Several believers today are not different from Naaman in this aspect. When they get to church and discover the preacher taking the sermon is not the G.O. or pastor, they will suddenly grow cold on the message.

You will hear some of them say, ‘ I don’t get blessed whenever any other pastor preaches other than my pastor’. This is a mark of childhood. If your reception of God’s Word is dependent on who preaches and who does not preach, you are exalting the messenger above the message.

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8). Today’s reading tells us that long after the messenger has passed away, the Word of God still stands. If you are a true seeker of the Most High, the messenger He uses in communicating with you does not matter. You will joyfully receive the message and act on it.

Today, even when some prophetic utterances are coming directly from the Throne of Grace, some highly learned intellectuals cannot receive it, because they focus on the grammatical errors of the messenger. Some find it difficult to receive a divine message coming through their child, ward or even house help.

If Naaman had not listened to his house help, he would have died a leper. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Concentrate on the Word not the messenger. The messenger can make mistakes being a man, but God’s Word stands forever. Sharpen your reception today!

Father, help me to receive your messages through whatever medium you choose.

DIVINE PRESENCE FACILITATES GOOD WORKS

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10)

Read: Colossians 1:9-11

In Acts 2, after Peter delivered a powerful few minutes’ sermon, he made an altar call and 3000 souls responded. This shows that he was experiencing open Heavens. I have observed that prospering is not so much as the line of business or one’s expertise in one’s field (although these matter) as much as whether Heaven is open or closed to the individual.

If Heaven is open to you, even when all you sell is water, you will stand out and be a multi-millionaire. If it is firewood you are selling, people will stop patronizing others, and all roads would lead to your location. If you are operating a canteen, people will come to ask where you learnt to cook so well.

This season, Heaven will be opened to you. Peter and John had been seeing the lame man at the Beautiful Gate parish for years but could not do anything. But when Heaven opened to them on the day of Pentecost, they met the same lame man at the same location, in the same state, but this time, they had something to offer (Acts 3:1-8). When Heaven opens to you, you will have something to offer to the needy.

Thank God for laying on of hands. Many lives have been dramatically affected through this. The reason some lay hands on your head and nothing happened, is because the hands were empty. Heaven has not empowered them. In Matthew 3:16, not only did the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus, He also abode with Him. Jesus became the permanent residence of the Holy Spirit.

When Heaven opens to you, you will be guaranteed of divine presence which also means divine backing over whatever you embark on. According to Acts 10:38, Jesus could produce good works because God was with Him. If you desire to do good or be full of good works, you must crave the divine presence in your life. Have you been struggling with living the Christian life? Are you compromising with unbelieving colleagues in your office? Is it difficult for you to stand for the truth in the face of compromising believers?

Do you find it difficult to forgive that neighbour who has offended you? You need open Heavens to release the divine presence that can help you do what you cannot ordinarily do. The Lord will open Heaven upon you and empower you to be fruitful in serving Him, living right, and in doing every good work in Jesus’ Name.

Lord, as never before, let me be a carrier of the Holy Spirit.

WHICH SURPRISE PACK?

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
romans-11-22-660x330Memorise: “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” (Romans 11:22 )

Read: Romans 11:17-24

Our God is called Wonderful (Isaiah 9:6). He is loaded with awe-causing events – both good and bad and distributes these to people, depending on whether they are friends or foes. He revealed Himself to the Israelites and the Egyptians as the Wonderful, only that each saw His wonders from two different ends.

Another person who knew Jesus as the Wonderful was Peter. In Luke 5:1-11, after exhausting all effort without catching a single fish, Peter encountered Jesus. From the same lake where he could not catch a fish, with the revelation of the Wonderful, Peter’s catch sank two ships. When the Wonderful is involved in your case, where you could not get anything from will be the same place, idea, business, profession or family you will obtain a harvest beyond comprehension.

Peter was so shocked, awe-stricken and dumb-founded at this surprise pack from the Wonderful that he became confused on how to respond. This season, the Lord will release a positive surprise package into your hands that will cause you to open your mouth in surprise in the Name of Jesus Christ.

“Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off” (Rom 11:22). God’s goodness is released from His positive wonder packs, while His judgement come from the negative wonder packs. In today’s reading, we are told of the dealings of the Wonderful with both Jews and Gentiles. Initially, God chose to introduce Himself to the Israelites.

He specially chose them as His children and fought against all their enemies. Even when Jesus came, He said He was sent to the lost house of Israel (Matthew 15:24). Also in Acts 1:8, priority was given to Israel. These were all parts of the pleasant surprises from the Wonderful. But when they continued to grieve His Spirit, He cut them off and started dealing with the Gentiles. That was His severity – a negative surprise as far as the Jews were concerned.

Are you a believer? You qualify for pleasant surprise packs from the Wonderful. But if you do not sustain your righteous standing and daily make Him happy, He may show you another aspect of His surprises – judgement. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. You are the one to determine which surprise package will come to you by your works, thoughts and desires.

Lord, as you visit me with good surprise packs, visit every oppressor of my destiny with negative surprises.

Make this Christmas merry

Posted on Updated on

John 3 vs. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish but have everlasting life – 

Another Christmas, the greatest celebration in the world is here. How are you preparing to mark the Christmas? Are you planning to go on holidays or you are on holidays already?

Have you decorated your offices and homes with lightings and Christmas trees? Have you given gifts to friends and relations that have been of support to you throughout the year? Have you done the traditional Christmas shopping and have bought clothes for the kids

Christmas is a time of fun, entertainment, merry making, relaxation, and festivities.

No matter how you are planning to spend the Christmas, it is important to remember the reason for the celebration. Jesus Christ is the author of Christmas as the day is a remembrance of his birthday.

Your Christmas celebrations will not be complete and will in fact be meaningless if you do not know and discover the reason for the celebration. How would you feel if someone marks your birthday and forgets to wish you the celebrant a happy birthday?

Jesus is the celebrant and one important thing you must do this Christmas is to understand his ministry and accept his call for your salvation. Read the rest of this entry »

Names of Jesus Christ-Wonderful, Counselor,The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters” (Exodus 15:10)

Read: Exodus 15:1-11

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

In the above verse, we are told of five names and titles of our Lord Jesus Christ and each of them is not only power-packed, but also significant for His church on earth. He is called ‘Wonderful’.

This means full of wonders. The fact that He is called Wonderful means that we should expect lots of wonder, surprise-causing events from Him. Exodus 15:11 lends credence to this special name saying, “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?Image result

Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Why is He called Wonderful? It is because He is the custodian of wonders – both pleasant and unpleasant, and gives them out to His friends, foes and demons as situation demands.

For instance at the Red Sea, He revealed Himself to both the Israelites and the Egyptians as the One full of wonders. He gave the former pleasant wonders by parting the Red Sea for them to escape from their enemies. It was in appreciation of this that the Israelites sang the song of Moses (Exodus 15:1-19).

On the other hand, the Egyptians got their dose of surprise – but a negative one this time. They saw the Red Sea open and they went after Israel. Their mouths were open as they saw what they never saw before, and were still looking when the sea covered them.

Unfortunately, many enemies of God never live to tell the story of their encounter with the Wonderful. Someone asked, What is a wonder? A wonder is an unexpected event that leaves your mouth wide open. The Yorubas call it Iyanu – (a wonder that leaves your mouth agape). When you encounter the Wonderful, you will not know when your mouth will open in surprise. If nothing has caused you to open your mouth without closing it, you are yet to know Him as the Wonderful.

Until He reveals Himself to you as the Wonderful, you cannot assess the surprise packages in His kitty that can truly overwhelm you. From today, ask Him to reveal Himself to you as the Wonderful. Situations in your life will only respond to Him as the Wonderful.

Ask that God would terminate the activities of false prophets and false churches in this nation.

Christmas day sermon: Lessons from the birth of Jesus Christ

Posted on Updated on

Christmas sermon: lessons from the Birth of Jesus Christ

 Read Mathew 1 and 2; and Luke 1

  1. You shall be rewarded. There is a reward for chastity and purity. Mary would have lost her divine destiny if she indulged in premarital sex during courtship with Joseph. –Mathew 1 vs 18. As you hold on to sexual purity, you shall be rewarded in Jesus name.
  2. You shall be favoured. Mary was favoured. She could not have been the only Virgin in the land, but she was highly favoured among women. – Luke 1 vs 29. I pray you shall attract favour in Jesus name.
  3. You shall be singled out for blessing. Mary was singled out for blessing. God decided to bless Mary with a son of the Holy Ghost. – Luke 1 vs 29. I pray you shall be singled out for blessing among a multitude of men and women in Jesus name.
  4. You shall be promoted. Mary was a house girl, promoted to become ‘mother of God’. The Bible describes her as a handmaid. Luke 1 vs 47.  Yet she was magnified above all women. I pray God shall turn your weakness to strength in Jesus name
  5. You shall not be barren. Bareness is not from God. The Holy Spirit that caused a virgin woman to conceive and bore a son called Jesus, without sexual intercourse, would cause every woman that has a womb or without a womb to be a mother of children. – Mathew 1 vs 18.
  6. Your reproaches shall be rolled away. Jesus rolled away the reproach of Elisabeth. John was born six months earlier, as a forerunner of Jesus. John had to be born earlier because he had a part to play to fulfil Jesus’s ministry. Elisabeth who faced the reproach of bareness for many decades, gave birth to John who heralded the ministry of Jesus. Luke 1 vs 36. As you celebrate Jesus every reproach of bareness in your life shall be rolled away in Jesus name.
  7. Receive faith. Mary was a woman of faith. Mary believed the Angel of God. Luke 1 vs 38. I pray faithlessness shall not deny you a breakthrough in Jesus name.
  8. Your husband shall be a just man. Joseph was a just man. Joseph the ‘father’ of Jesus was described as a ‘just man’. May God give single ladies just men as husbands in Jesus name. – Mathew 1 vs 19
  9. Receive divine visitation and guidance. An Angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph. The angel of the Lord shall appear to you today to give you direction and guidance in Jesus name– Mathew 1 vs 20.
  10. Jesus shall save you. His name means saviour. No matter the depth, degree, or nature of sin you have committed in the past, Jesus will save you when you call unto him. Mathew 1 vs 21
  11. God shall not fail you. God does not lie. Jesus’s birth was in fulfilment of prophecy by Prophet Isaiah 9 vs 6; and several other prophets. I prophesy that every good prophecy on you shall come to pass in Jesus name- Mathew 1 vs 22.
  12. God is with you. Jesus means God with us. Anytime you shout the name Jesus, know surely that you are bringing down the attention and presence of God to your situation – Mathew 1 vs 23.
  13. There is a reward for obedience. Adam disobeyed God. But Joseph obeyed God. Joseph would have lost his place in the divine salvation plan of God if he had not obeyed God and agreed to accept a pregnancy he is not responsible for. – Mathew 1 vs 24. Choose to obey God today.
  14. Wise men shall minister to you. Wise men came to look for Jesus. I pray that your destiny shall attract wise men in Jesus name- Mathew 2 vs 1.
  15. Your star shall shine. The Star of Jesus appeared brightly from the time of his birth and was seen from the East. I pray that you Star shall shine early in your life- Mathew 2 vs 2.
  16. God shall trouble your troublers. Herod was troubled at the birth of Jesus. God shall trouble your troublers in Jesus name. The powers that are sad because of your breakthroughs shall be silenced in Jesus name- Mathew 2 vs 3.
  17. Follow follow powers shall die. Wise men followed the Star of Jesus for good, but Herod monitored Jesus’s Star for evil. I pray powers following and monitoring your star for evil shall die suddenly like Herod in Jesus name- Mathew 2 vs 7.
  18. You shall move from poverty to prosperity. Jesus born in a manger, became wealthy from birth as He was presented with precious gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. I pray you Star shall attracted gifts that shall banish poverty from your family in Jesus name- Mathew 2 vs 11.
  19. You shall move from minimum to maximum. Jesus was born among animals in a manger with swaddling clothes around him. Luke 2 vs 7. This is the humblest of birth, but he ended up being the greatest person that ever lived on earth. It is not your beginning that matters, nor where you are, the power of God shall promote you from the minimum to the maximum.
  20. God will give you space. There was no space for Jesus in the inn. Luke 2 vs 7. Those denying you a space now, shall come back to bow before you in Jesus name.
  21. Prepare for divine visitation. Angels visited Jesus at birth, Luke 2 vs 9. An angel of God shall visit you today and always in Jesus name.
  22. Receive God’s Glory. The glory of God filled the presence of Jesus from birth. Luke 2 vs 9. The glory of God shall overshadow you today and all the days of your life in Jesus name.
  23. God shall deliver you. Herod sought to destroy Jesus from birth. Those seeking your life from birth shall die, the battles of your life from birth, shall expire in Jesus name- Mathew 2 vs 13.
  24. Your Herods shall die. ‘But when Herod was dead’ Mathew 2 vs 19. The powers that want you dead shall die in Jesus name.
  25. Expect divine direction. Jesus was born in Bethlehem- Mathew 2 vs 1; and was taken to Egypt on divine instruction- Mathew 2 vs 13; and later to Nazareth by divine revelation- Mathew 2 vs 22. I pray that your steps shall be directed by God in Jesus name. You shall not walk amiss in Jesus name.
  26. You shall not be stagnant.And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon him’. Luke 2 vs 40.
  27. You shall move forward. You shall grow just as Jesus grew. Luke 2 vs 40.
  28. You shall increase. You shall increase in strength just as Jesus increased in strength. Luke 2 vs 40.
  29. You shall be wise. You shall be filled with wisdom just as Jesus was wise. Luke 2 vs 40.
  30. Receive great grace. The grace of Jesus shall be upon you just as Jesus was filled with grace. Luke 2 vs 40.

Prayer point: My star and glory must shine

Posted on Updated on

  By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him” (Matthew 2:11a)

Read: Matthew 2:1-8

birth-of-jesus“And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child: and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also” (Matthew 2:8).

After Jesus was born, some wise men came looking for Him. We want to learn one or two things from this passage. First, the people that came searching for Jesus were no ordinary men. They were the wise men of their day.

In those days, kings depended on the advice of their wise men. These were powerful people who prophesied, explained omens and dark secrets, interpreted dreams and generally practiced divinations. They were well respected and feared by kings because they were of priestly caste.

If a commoner had come to king Herod with the news of the birth of a unique king, he would have laughed it over and gone to sleep. But when these powerful and revered wise men came from a distance with the message, Herod was afraid.

God got his attention through this. He thought, if these powerful priests who were skilled and versed in the study of the stars could leave their country with the intention of worshipping a new born baby king, then, it must be a serious matter. Herod and his men had no rest from the moment the bombshell was delivered.

God knows how to get your attention. Just one unpleasant news is enough to get somebody’s attention. Have you been trying to get somebody’s attention but your efforts never paid off? Is the fellow always complaining of not having time? If you call on the Attention Specialist to intervene, the fellow would suspend everything else just to attend to you.

Whoever has ignored you, your family or desires for so long will have no choice but to attend to you this season in Jesus’ Name. Besides, these honourable wise men decided to see the One the special star announced. There are stars and there are stars. The star announcing Jesus was an unusual one. It was so remarkable that they knew this King was no ordinary king. That He was a child did not matter.

They knew this child was the King of kings. They were determined to go and worship Him: They told king Herod that there is a Super King that kings should worship, and he too promised to do so, although he was not sincere. Are you a king? Are you a man or woman of authority? Then you need to know this King that kings, lords, and great people must worship. If you fail to bow your heart to Jesus, your position or power can be voided.

Go on your knees and worship this Super King for at least one hour.

CHOOSING FOR YOURSELF?

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands” ( Psalm 78:72)

Read: Genesis 2:21-22

psalm78In Genesis 24:1-6, not only was Abraham concerned about Isaac’s bride, he ensured his chief servant was put under oath to pick from his home town. For many years, Abraham sojourned in Canaan – the promised land yet when it came to choosing a wife for his son Isaac, he went home. A time to marry is a time to return home – to the Body of Christ.

Every believer has his or her spouse waiting in the Body of Christ, not necessarily in the same denomination. Are you single and trusting God for a husband or wife? Go back to the Body of Christ. Once you have accepted God’s verdict that unbelievers are completely out of it – no matter how intelligent, rich, understanding or compatible the fellow may be, the next thing is to decide whether you want to choose by yourself, through some assistance by men, or you want God to choose for you.

You are free to choose a fellow believer as a marriage partner but there are high risks involved in this. It is possible the fellow you see as very zealous, up and doing and an ideal spouse could be putting up an act, or may be a spiritual weight. Many believers have fallen prey to such actors in the past and are today full of regrets.

A promising young brother got involved with a sister who joined the church. She went through the young converts class and was water-baptized. Before the pastor knew it, they were seeing each other and eventually fell into fornication. After the brother was disciplined, he went ahead to marry the lady. Years later, the initial fire in the brother refused to ignite.

He continued to serve God peripherally. When he was being considered for a ministerial training, his wife was the excuse. Her presence in his life had quenched the Pentecostal fire in him. Younger believers have come and over taken the brother, yet his eyes have not opened to his persistent lukewarm state. Another reason not to choose by yourself is that whatever you use as criteria for your choice may not stand the test of time.

If you are choosing him because he is rich or choosing her because she is very pretty, what happens when that wealth or beauty disappears tomorrow? You can be sure that will become a big problem. Also, human beings are generally limited in their ability to make right choices. You may be choosing that fellow because of what you can see today instead of looking at his tomorrow. Let God choose for you!

Some pastors manipulate their members to marry only from their local parish contrary to the will of God. Never play God in the lives of those under you!

Christmas sermon on the birth of Jesus Christ: I shall rewrite my family history

Posted on Updated on

Mathew 1 vs 1: The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Mathew 1 vs 17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

  1. There are 42 generations between the Abraham and birth of Jesus, but Jesus was only called the son of two out of his 42 ancestors.
  2. Jesus was called the Son of Abraham and David.
  3. The forty other ancestors were mentioned just in passing, because they were not story changers like Abraham and David.
  4. Why was Jesus referred to as son of David, son of Abraham? Why not son of Josias, and son of Azor, who are part of his ancestors?
  5. It is simply because the history of the ancestry of Jesus Christ changed during the lifetime of Abraham and David

Prayers:

  1. My name, rewrite the history of my generation in Jesus name
  2. My name, redefine the history of my descendants up to the 42nd generation in Jesus name
  3. My name shall be the reference point for my family in Jesus name

ASKING FROM THE TOP?

Posted on Updated on

    By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off” (Psalm 138:6)

Read: 2 Kings 5:9-12

138Elisha heard how the Israeli king tore his royal robe into shreds for fear that the king of Syria was seeking an occasion for war with them, so he invited Naaman over to his house. Naaman came with pomp and pageantry. He came with fine horses and chariots and was decorated with his uniform as a general. He got to Elisha’s house but felt it was not presentable enough so he stayed outside. He was the one in need of help yet he was the one exhibiting pride.

With all the things he was proudly displaying, he was still a leper. Without Jesus Christ, a sinner is still a sinner no matter how highly placed he is. Sin in the life of a sin is worse than leprosy, hence a sinner is worse than a leper. Every sinner is far removed from God except the fellow takes advantage of the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary. Isaiah 1:18 says, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”.

This talks of the efficacy of the blood of Jesus Christ. What is meant here is that even if one’s sins have been doubly immersed into the deep coloured dye of the coccus worm meant to give it a permanent fix, it can be restored to its original whiteness. The blood of Jesus can both deal with the colour and texture of sin. This means, no matter what sin you have committed, there is forgiveness for you if you can sincerely come to Jesus and ask for cleansing by His blood today.

Another lesson here has to do with attitude. Pride and blessing never go together. Psalm 138:6 says, “Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off”. The spirit of pride can never walk in agreement with our God. Never! As high as God is, He will only regard the lowly or humble seeker. You cannot seek God if you feel too big, too knowledgeable or too wise.

As long as you cannot come down from your high tower to meet God at the lowly place, you may never meet Him. Whenever you are seeking God’s blessing, align your ways with His. Humble yourself. Forget how important people say you are. Come to Him as a nobody – someone who is helpless, hopeless and impoverished. Call out to Him with humility and He will hear you. Some people cannot get their desires, not because they are not asking, but because they are asking from a high place instead of the lowly place.

Humility is key to receiving from God.

Christmas messages: Who is Jesus Christ?

Posted on Updated on

Mathew 3 vs 13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.14 But John forbad him, saying, I have John-The-Baptist-Paintingneed to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

  1. Jesus was a humble man, though he was Lord, yet he subjected himself to be being baptized by John.
  2. John the baptist himself was embarrassed to baptize Jesus.
  3. Compare this to the way, the present Priests and Pastors behave as tin gods over their congregation
  4. Compare this to the way, Christians behave arrogantly over their subjects
  5. Prayer: O Lord give me a humble heart

CHANGE WHEN HEAVEN OPENS

Posted on Updated on

 By Pastor Enoch Adeboye
Memorise: “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant” (Jeremiah 1:10)

Read: Matthew 3:13-17

kjv_jeremiah_1-10Mark 16:15-18 says after you are born again and have undergone a valid water baptism – by immersion, the next thing to expect is the manifestation of the miraculous. If you are born again but have not been baptized correctly, immediately take steps to correct this. Heaven is keen on your demonstrating to the world the change experienced inside of you. The world is waiting to see the Jesus that is in you. May they not be disappointed in Jesus’ Name.

In today’s reading, as soon as Jesus Christ was baptized, the Heavens opened to Him. This year, you will experience open Heavens in Jesus’ Name. There are several benefits that descend when the Heavens open. First, when Heaven opens, power descends. When the Heavens opened to Jesus, suddenly Jesus of Nazareth became Jesus Christ of Nazareth – the Anointed One. The ability to succeed, perform miracles, signs and wonders suddenly came.

Acts 10:38 says, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”. The moment the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus, He became a different person. Signs, wonders, and miracles became common place in His ministry. Shortly before His ascension, He told His disciples in Acts 1:8 that they too would receive the power He got.

When the Holy Ghost comes upon you, it means Heaven has opened to you. When this power from Heaven alights on you, you would have the ability to succeed in all you do. Infact, accomplishing difficult tasks become stressless.

When Heaven opens to a minister, when he makes an altar call, people will rush forward on their own. Those who have been complacent towards the things of God would hear his message and break down weeping. When Heaven opens to a preacher, before he waves his hands, the sick would be healed. Demons would see him and flee. Have you been struggling?

Have you been preaching with few or no responses to your altar call? Has it been difficult for you to market your products or services? You need open Heavens. In the Name of Jesus, I command the Heavens to open over you today. This season, Heaven will open to release your blessing in the mighty Name of Jesus.

Some friends take you up while others bring you down. Lord, replace every evil friend with friends who will lift me up.
