Prayers

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.

Sermon on Mathew 13 vs 25: Spiritual sleeping

Posted on

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.
  • The Spirit of God shall expose every hidden enemies of your life in Jesus name.
  • Any green snake under the green grass of your life shall be exposed and disgraced in Jesus amen
  • Thunder of God shall strike down powers hiding in the dark to shoot evil arrows at you in Jesus name
  1. The second lesson is that the enemy comes when we are sleeping
  • I pray that every nocturnal visitor shall be fall from evil altars in Jesus name

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

  1. 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.
  • Holy Spirit shall deliver you from sleeping when you are supposed to be on spiritual duty in Jesus name
  • You shall no longer sleep on spiritual duty in Jesus name
  • You shall not sleep when Holy Spirit is raising battle cries for your victory in Jesus name
  1. The third lesson is that enemy comes to pollute and contaminate the spirit of man.
  • Polluting powers shall be arrested in Jesus name
  • Powers downloading problems into your destiny shall fall and rise no more in Jesus name

 

  1. The fourth lesson is that the enemy comes to cause confusion, to waste opportunities, to deposit strange object into people.
  • Blood of Jesus shall flush out evil deposits in your blood
  • Blood of Jesus shall flush out evil deposits in your kidney
  • Blood of Jesus shall flush out evil deposits in your stomach
  • Blood of Jesus shall flush out evil deposits in your womb
  • Blood of Jesus shall flush out evil deposits in your heart and organs
  1. The fifth lesson is that the enemy has some evil powers, because Jesus Christ says that the enemy came and sowed wild weeds. But Praise the Lord Jesus who has all powers

Philippians 2:10 – that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth

  • Enchanters shall bow before you in Jesus name
  • Sorcerers shall bow before you in Jesus name
  • Witchcraft shall bow before you in Jesus name
  • Demons shall bow before you in Jesus name

Commentary on Luke 8: The touch of Jesus

Posted on

Luke 8 vs. 43-4643 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

2 Kings 9 vs 22 And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?

2 Kings 9:30-3330 And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.

31 And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master?

32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs.

33 And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.

Bible study on Matthew 10

Posted on Updated on

 

  1. The 12 disciples of Jesus were introduced in Mathew 10.
  2. Why did Jesus choose 12 disciples, perhaps the tribes in Israel?
  3. Why were all the disciples’ male? The plausible reason is to avoid issues that may occur in mixing married or unmarried male and females together on His hectic missionary and evangelistic work. However, several other female disciples ministered to him
  4. Disciples of Jesus should preach the gospel, and the central message should be that of repentance and salvation. Sermons should be heaven focused (vs.7)And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 

  1. Ministers of Christ are empowered to heal the sick and raise the dead (vs.8)Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead
  2. Ministers are empowered to cast out devils and deliver people from demonic oppression (vs.8), cast out devils
  3. Ministers should not commercialize the gospel or place a price tag on healing, deliverance, or salvation (vs.8)freely ye have received, freely give.
  4. Ministers should trust God to provide their wages- Verse 9 and 10 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
  5. Ministers should depend on God for financial provision (vs.9, 10) 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

 

  1. Salvation is by informed consent. Ministers should not spread the gospel where they are not welcomed (vs.11)And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
  2. Ministers of the gospel should be wise and smart and avoid falling into traps of the ungodly (vs.16): be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  3. Ministers of Christ should abstain from all evils, and be peaceful (vs.16)be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  4. Ministers should be watchful and vigilant of haters of the gospel (vs.17)But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
  5. Ministers of the gospel should expect to be persecuted, hated by the ungodly (vs.22)And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

 

  1. Ministers should not confront persecutors of the gospel, but ‘flee’ from them (vs.23)But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
  2. Ministers of Christ should not be ashamed of the gospel (vs.33)But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
  3. Ministers should preach the gospel boldly and openly (vs.27)What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

 

  1. Your enemies will be blood relations– verse 36- And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
  2. Any Christian who does not minister Christ is akin to an infidel (vs.38)And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
  3. Those that support the Minister of the gospel shall be divinely rewarded (vs. 40, 41&42)40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

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?

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Bible study on Mathew 9

Posted on Updated on

 

  1. Matthew 9 further reveals the healing and salvation ministry of Jesus Christ.
  2. Jesus healed the paralytic, (vs.2) – And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee;
  3. Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood for 12 years, (vs.22) – But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour;
  4. He rose the daughter of the king from dead, (vs.25)– But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

 

  1. He also caused the blind men to see, (vs.30) – And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
  2. He healed the dumb  (vs.33)– And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
  3. Jesus also introduced himself again as the Savior, and friend of sinners. He dined with a crowd of drunkards and sinners. He did not stigmatize nor label them as outcasts. Rather, he announced his ministry to them: ‘(vs.13)– for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
  4. If the only thing we do in church or Christian ministry is to preach to the saved, then we are not fulfilling the ministry of Jesus Verse 12 – 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
  5. Jesus revealed himself as a teacher of the word, preacher of the gospel, and a city/village evangelist. The miracles of Jesus were either preceded or accompanied by teaching of the Word of God, and preaching on repentance from sins.

 

  • Lastly Jesus lamented that absence of labourers to harvest souls to the kingdom. Would you decide today to harvest souls for the kingdom by doing the work of a missionary, evangelist, or Pastor?

Verse 37Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but     the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

  • Do you want to remain as a church goer, a bench warmer in church or you want to step out for Jesus from today as a harvester of soul?

Prayers

  • The devil shall not harvest your soul in Jesus name
  • The devil shall NOT harvest my soul in Jesus name

Bible study on Matthew 8

Posted on Updated on

Matthew 8 introduces us to the three-fold ministry of the Lord Jesus:

  1. Ministry of healing
  2. Ministry of deliverance
  3. Ministry of salvation

 

  1. Jesus is the Healer
  2. Jesus healed the leper – 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
  3. Jesus healed the man sick of palsy (vs.6)And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented;
  4. Jesus healed Peter’s mother sick of fever (vs. 14)And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
  5. If you wish to receive a miracle, start by worshipping God. The leper worshipped Jesus before requesting for healing

vs. 2 –  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying

 

  1. The leper worshipped Jesus. What are you passing through that is hindering you from worshipping God?
  2. The leper worshipped God and received a miracle. Jesus does not respond to weeping, murmurings, or lamentations. Jesus respond to worship
  3. You need faith to receive divine healing. The centurion received divine healing for his servant by faith. Verse 88The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
  4. Jesus healed by speaking word of God (vs. 8 and 15) – 8The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.  15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

 

Jesus did not heal by asking people to drink holy water, asking them to bath in streams, asking them to sow a financial seed for healing, or asking the sick to rub spiritual cream on the body. He simply spoke the word of God healed the sick.

  1. If you desire healing, just speak the word. Compile healing scriptures and recite them daily.
  2. Jesus healed the sick by touch. The finger of Jesus shall touch you today in Jesus name

Verse 3:And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him

  1. Jesus is the deliverer. He delivered many that were possessed by devils ( 16) – 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

And (vs. 28) – 28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

 

  1. Deliverance is core of Jesus’s ministry. Jesus cast out devils. You can cast out every devils troubling your life in Jesus name.
  2. Deliverance is by the word of God, Deliverance is not by any other material, except the word. It is the word that delivers, not intermediaries such as oil, handkerchief, water, soap, clothes, or photograph of men of God.

Verse 16 – and he cast out the spirits with his word

  1. Jesus was asleep despite the stormy winds that was drowning the ship because he knew angels are ministering to him and God is in control. We need to be calm in face of crises and trust in Emmanuel, God is with us

Verse 24 – And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

  1. The disciples of Jesus were almost getting drowned but Jesus intervened. The disciples were almost perishing in the sea, but Jesus saved them. As long as you are with God, you shall not perish in any stormy wind of life in Jesus name. The Lord Jesus shall surely save you from perishing

Verse 25: And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

  1. Jesus is the Saviour. He rebuked the stormy wind, and saved his disciples from the drowning ship.

Verse 26  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

  • I rebuke every storm in your ship in Jesus name

 

  1. Christians should be ready to make sacrifices for the kingdom. If you wish to carry the cross and follow Jesus, you should be ready to make sacrifices.

Verse 20: And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head

  1. Are you a true follower of Jesus.? Are you ready to follow Jesus anywhere? The disciples of Jesus followed him. If you are not doing any thing for the kingdom or obeying Gods laws, then you are not following Jesus

Verse 23:  And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

  1. You need to speak the word to claim your healing, call on Jesus to deliver you from devils; and pray to Him to save you from the stormy winds threatening to drown you.

Prayer

  • My body hear the word of God, be healed in Jesus name
  • Devils afflicting my life, I cast you out in Jesus name

Bible commentary – Matthew 7

Posted on

Matthew 7 outlines some of the acts of righteousness expected from Christians.

  1. Don’t judge others. Don’t pass judgment on others. Walk out your own salvation first rather than passing something on others

– vs. 1 – Judge not, that ye be not judged

  1. Don’t be self-righteous or hypocritical.

Check, criticize, and appraise yourself, and work out your salvation with fear and trembling

Verse 5-Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

  1. The law of asking and receiving. If you don’t ask, you may not receive.

Verse 8: For every one that asketh receiveth;

  1. Ask in faith Present your petitions to God.

vs. 7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

 

  1. Seek in determination. Be persistent and determined when you pray. Use different weapons of warfare. 7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
  2. Knock in desperation. Be violent. Don’t take No for an answer. Pray until something happens.

vs. 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

  1. You have a Father in heaven. Trust him to care for you.

Verse 11- your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

  1. Forsake the sinful pleasures of the world if you wish to make heaven. Don’t join the multitude to commit evil.

Many people are on the way to hell. Don’t join the multitude to commit evil. Don’t believe it because it is popular, believe it because it is the word of God.

Forsake the world. Making heaven demands sacrifice. Don’t join the crowd to do evil.

Verse 13:  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

 

  1. Seek the word and its sacrificial life if you wish to make heaven. Stand up for righteousness, even if you are standing alone. Making heaven requires huge sacrifices. If you wish to gain heaven, you be ready for the pain of holiness.

Few people are finding their way to heaven. Be one of the few.

14–. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

  1. Beware of false prophets. Don’t believe every man that calls himself a man of God. Test the spirit. Test the character. Look out for the fruits of the spirit.

Verse 15- Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.Verse 20- Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

  1. Sinners cannot enter into heaven, no matter their pretentions to godliness. Jesus will tell many people on the last day: Depart from me, you are a sinner

Verse 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

  1. Build your life on the rock. The key to success in life is focusing on God.

vs. 24 –Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

 

  1. If you wish to make heaven, obey the laws of God

Verse 24 – Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

  1. Don’t be a fool. Anyone that ignores the word of God is a foolish man. Don’t be a fool.

Verse 26– And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Commentary of Mathew 6

Posted on

Matthew 6 lists the acts of righteousness expected from Christians

  1. Giving Alms- Alms should be given to the needy secretly to be rewarded by God, not openly to receive the glory of men

– 4 – That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

  1. Fasting and Praying to God-Personal prayers should be said to God secretly, not in public places; also, your prayers should not be repetitive of words you have memorized, but a free expression of your thoughts to God

– 7 – But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

  1. Fast secretly-Don’t fast to be recognized by men, but by God. Let no man know you are fasting

– 16 – Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

 

  1. Seek God First- Seek after the things of the kingdom

– 20 – But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

  1. Love God, hate the love of money

– 24 – No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

  1. Have faith in God, trust Him. Don’t be anxious or apprehensive. Focus on your daily needs – 25 – Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?34 – Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
  2. Seek God first, and He will take care of your needs

– 33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

Commentary on the Lord’s prayer in Mathew 6

Mathew 6 also features the Lord prayer which is a pattern, guide, model and pattern for saying prayers. The Bible does not expect us to restrict our prayers to it, follow these steps to pray according to God’s will.

  1. Our Father which art in heaven – vs. 9

Start your prayers by acknowledging and recognizing the attributes of God, who you are directing your prayers.

  1. Hallowed be thy name –9

Next step is to Praise God, before presenting any request before him.

  1. Thy kingdom come –10

Pray for His will first, before your will. Intercede for the kingdom, the church, the ministry, evangelist, the mission work, before you start laying down your needs.

 

  1. Thy will be done in earth– 10

Pray and intercede for holiness and righteousness among all men in the world

  1. Give us this day our daily bread – vs. 11

Now you can start praying for your needs.  Don’t pray for luxuries. Pray for only your daily needs.

  1. Forgive us our debt– 12

Confess your sins and pray for forgiveness of your sins.

  1. As we forgive our debtors – vs. 12

Don’t pray if you hold bitterness or grudge against anyone, otherwise your prayer will remain unanswered. Forgive those who offend you first before you come to the altar of prayer.

 

  1. Lead us not into temptation – vs. 13

Pray for grace to remain righteous and holy.

  1. Deliver us from evil – vs. 13

Resist the devil with prayers to wade off evils.

  1. For thine is the kingdom – vs. 13

Conclude your prayers by giving thanks to God, praising and worshiping Him for Who He is and for answered prayers.

Commentary on Isaiah 49 vs 24-26: Eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood

Posted on

By Babatope Babalobi babalobi@yahoo.com +2348035897435

  1. The Holy Spirit showed me a strange revelation this morning.
  2. I saw a man standing and suddenly an evil power came like a bird from the sky and started licking the man, and later on began to eat up his  flesh
  3. I woke up in amazement that such horrible things do occur and the Holy Spirit said what I have just seen is the activities of eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood.
  4. At this point you need to pray like this-
  • My flesh is not for ritual sacrifice in Jesus name
  • My flesh become fire, my blood carry fire in Jesus name

Let see what the scriptures say about eaters of flesh in Isaiah 49 vs 26-
24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?

25 But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

 

Who are these eaters of flesh that the scriptures is talking about?

Who are these eaters of flesh that the Holy Spirit showed me in a revelation?

  1. They are the people the Bible called the mighty
  2. They are the powers the Bible called Terrible
  3. They are dark powers that do not respect the power you are carrying
  4. They are dark powers that specialise in taking people as a prey
  5. They are dark powers contending with your destiny
  6. They are oppressive and limiting spirits
  7. They are powers that quench their thirsts with human blood
  8. They are powers that use human flesh with as dinner

 

What are the activities of these eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood?

  1. They are responsible for unexplainable accidents.  If you see any accident where blood has been spilled and with human carnage, possibly this accident has been programmed
  2. They are responsible for strange deaths in hospital. There several satanic hospitals around that donate patients to dark powers.
  3. They are responsible for ritual sacrifices, murders, and assassinations.
  4. They are responsible for drying sicknesses
  5. The drinkers of blood are responsible for wounds that refuse to heal
  6. The eaters of flesh are responsible for miscarriages, still births, abortions, child and maternal deaths
  7. They are responsible for kidnappings, genocide, civil wars, Islamic extremism like Boko Haram/Isis and all other activities that leads to unnecessary shedding of human blood and waste of life

 Image result for Isaiah 49 vs 26-

How do you overcome the eaters of flesh and drinkers of blood?

  1. Become born again
  2. Engage in spiritual warfare
  3. Pray Judgmental prayers
  4. Mark yourself with the blood of Jesus

What happens why heaven becomes opened?

  • You will see visions of God (vs. 1)Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

 

  • You will receive divine revelations to bring you out of captivity and bondages

 

  • The hand of the Lord shall be upon you (v 3) – The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.
  • You will see the fire of God (v 13) – As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

You will see the glory of the Lord ( v28) – As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake

 

You will hear the voice of God ( v28) – As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

 

You will see the spirit of God ( v12) – And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

 

You will see the hosts of heaven (v 15)Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

 

You will hear the voice of the Almighty (v 24)And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

 

You will see the throne of God (v 26)And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

You will hear the hosts of heaven (v 24) – And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

 

You will see Jesus (v 26) And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

Commentary on Luke 12: How to overcome covetousness

Posted on

Luke 12 vs. 15, 21 15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.  21So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.Image result for Luke 12 vs. 15, 21 - 15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 21So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

  1. Covetousness is the spirit of ingratitude, not being satisfied and never contended.
  2. Covetousness is the spirit of envy and jealousy, not appreciating Gods goodness in your life, but desiring to compete with your neigbour
  3. Coventousness is the spirit of greed, having good clothes and shoes that you have not worn in a year, yet complaining that you dont have enough.
  4. Covetousness is not being satisfied with one wife, but acquiring a harem of women.
  5. Covetousness is not being faithful to your spouse, but engaging in adultery because of rewards.
  6. Covetousness is offering sex for favour and profits
  7. Covetousness is a compulsive desire for the latest trends, desiring to acquire every new technology and gadgets while the old ones in your house are largely utilized.
  8. Covetousness is desiring  to make profit from every activity, desiring to make gain from every relationship and monetizing every act.
  9. Covetousness is stealing and earning income illegitimately.
  10. Covetous people are never satisfied with their material assets. They are never contented and never have enough.

Prayer

  • I reject material riches that will destroy my soul in Jesus name.

Evangelism: How to win a soul for the kingdom of God

Posted on

2 Corinthians 10 vs 33 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

  1. This is really a scripture for soul winning rather than for deliverance.
  2. Several issues are clear from this scripture.Image result for 2 Corinthians 10 vs 3 - 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
  3. You may not be able to win a soul simply be evangelizing.
  4. There are strong holds that have held unbelievers captive and you need to pull them down in the spirit before you can win the captives for Christ
  5. You cannot win a soul through debate and arguments on the scriptures.
  6.  If for instance someone asks you: How are you sure there is heaven, have you been to heaven before? I am sure you may not be able to give a convincing response.
  7. You cannot win a soul by trying to debunk philosophies and theories against the Bible.
  8. The most effective way of soul winning is intercessory prayer and fasting to cast down strongholds that have held believers captive.
  9. You need to engage in warfare in the spirit to set unbelievers free physically and spiritually.

Prayer

  • Holy Spirit, give me souls this month in Jesus name

Power of prayer

Posted on

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.

Commentary on Luke 5: How to receive a net breaking miracle  

Posted on

 

Read Luke 5 vs. 1-5 – 1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

 

 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

 Image result for luke 5

 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

 

 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

 

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.

 

Simon Peter received a net-breaking miracle and you can follow his principle to receive such a miracle.

 

  1. You need divine favour. Peter was not the only fisherman washing his net when Jesus came to the lake of Gennesaret, but Jesus singled him out and approached him. Your miracle shall find you and locate you in Jesus name

 

  1. Peter was not the only ship owner by the lake of Gennesaret. There were two ships there, but Jesus decided to enter the ship of Peter. The Lord shall enter your ship today in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter released his ship to Jesus. There is a ship in your hand, you need to release to Jesus so that you can receive a blessing.

 

  1. Peter obeyed simple instruction. He was not wise in his eyes. He thrusted out the ship and launched the nets according to the commandment of Jesus. As you obeyed divine instructions, you shall receive net-breaking miracles in Jesus name.
  2. Peter was patient. He waited patiently as Jesus preached from his ship. Jesus sermon inside the ship, could possibly have taken hours. He did not complain. He did not hurry Jesus up, even though he was tired from all night toiling without profits. Impatience shall not cause you to miss your miracle in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter believed the word. “At thy word, I will let down the net” 5And 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.

 

Hold on to the word, and you shall receive a net-breaking miracle in Jesus name.

 

  1. Peter let down the ship and the net for Jesus. I repeat again that there is something in your hands you need to let down for Jesus to receive a miracle.

 

  1. Everything obeys the word of Jesus. Even fishes know their creator. The fishes filled the net of Peter at the word of Jesus. What happened was that the fishes heard their creator preaching, and they came to worship Him, and in the process got caught in Peter’s net. As you allow Jesus to enter and use your ship, every material thing- profits, fortunes, goodness and open doors shall pursue you in Jesus name.

 

  1. You need helpers and partners to overcome recession. Peter had fishing partners that helped me to draw up the net breaking miracle of fishes, otherwise he would have got drown. He had helper fishermen that assisted him to possess his blessings. You need helpers to connect you.

 

  1. Don’t be greedy. The ship of Peter alone could not accommodate his miracles. He had to call for assistance. If Peter was greedy, his miracle would had sunk him. Be contented when your miracle comes.

 

 

  1. Maintain good relationship with others. If Peter did not have good relationship with the other ship owners and fishermen, he would not have received support and his ship would had sunk.

 

  1. Lastly, when God blesses you, the whole world will know. God’s blessings are in abundance. God’s blessings will make you a blessing to others. Peter affected the fellow ship owner and fishermen with his blessings. His ship alone could not accommodate his blessings, and he had to share his blessings with others. When God blesses you, you shall become a blessing.

Prayer

  • God of Simon Peter, give me a net-breaking miracle in Jesus name.

Prayer for the fruit of the womb

Posted on Updated on

 

Prayer to overcomer barrenness

Read Luke 1

  1. Zacharias was a Priest in the Bible.
  2. he Bible says his wife, Elizabeth was barren.
  3. It is a mystery that, Elizabeth was barren despite her righteousness and her husband’s Priestly role.
  4. The Bible said both were righteous before God (Luke 1 vs. 6) yet they had no child.
  5. Both walked in the ordinances of God, yet they had no child (Luke 1 vs. 6)
  6. Both kept the commandments of God yet they had no child (Luke 1 vs. 6)
  7. The Bible described both blameless before God, yet they had no child, even till old age (Luke 1 vs. 6)
  8. Why did they remained childless? Why did the prayers of the Priest of the Lord remain unanswered? This is a mystery only God can explain.
  9. The good news, however, is that their life did not end in barrenness, as they eventually gave birth to John the Baptist.

 

How were they able to overcome barrenness?

  1. Zechariah continued to serve the Lord diligently – Luke 1 vs. 8
  2. Zechariah had angelic visitation – Luke 1 vs. 11
  3. The Bible says in Luke 1 vs 13 that God heard their prayers, which implies that they must have been praying
  4. God turned their impossibilities to possibilities – Luke 1 vs. 38

 

Prayer

You may be serving the Lord, and still experience barrenness. To overcome barrenness,

  • Trust Him.
  • Serve Him.
  • Pray to Him for divine visitation

 

As you do so, the Lord of Zacharias and Elizabeth shall visit your womb in Jesus name.

How to receive/get a miracle: Break the roof !

Posted on Updated on

Mark 2 vs 1-13 –And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home.

2 And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And he was preaching the word to them.  And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men.

4 And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. 5 And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts,

7 “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”Image result for Mark 2 vs 1-13

8 And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them,“Why do you question these things in your hearts?

9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’?

10 But that you may know that bthe Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic—

11 “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.”

12 And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

How to receive a miracle: Break the roof

The story of how the Man sick of palsy received healing from Jesus contains several lessons on how to receive a miracle.

1. Have a strong desire. The man could not have been the only one sickly, but he was the only one that overcame all odds to present himself for healing miracle.

2. Present yourself to Jesus. The man knew he needed supernatural intervention to be healed, so he presented himself to Jesus. If you want a miracle, approach the miracle worker.

3. Have extreme faith. The sick man agreed to be taken up the ladder, agreed to be let down a broken roof, and agreed to go through all the pains to receive healing. You need to leave and abandon your comfort zone to receive healing. No pain no gain. You need to go through the pain of studying the Bible, praying without ceasing, fasting, sacrificial holiness, and service to God.

4. Have supporters. Iron sharpeneth Iron. You need people to help you get out of crises. You need more friends not enemies. Who took the man with his sick bed to Jesus, who attempted to bring him to Jesus and failed, who took him up the roof, who broke the roof, who took him down a broken roof without the sick getting injured, who laid the sick man on the bed before Jesus, and who called the attention of Jesus to the sick man? His Friends and family members!  This year you need more friends and associates that will help you come out of crisis.

5. To sustain your miracle you need to run from sin. Jesus told him to go and sin no more. If you go back to sin, Satan will afflict you again

6. Use wisdom . It takes wisdom for the friends/family of the sick man to know they needed to break the roof to receive a miracle.Otherwise the man would have died in sickness

7. Purse your dreams. I am sure the man and his friends would have faced ridicule, oppositions, scorn, and physical pain while climbing and breaking the roof to get to Jesus. Ignore the world, pursue your dreams, and the world will end up celebrating you

Prayer

  1. I break the roof covering my open heavens in Jesus name.
  2. I break the roof of prayerlessness and sin covering my miracles in Jesus name

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.

BEYOND ENEMY’S DEATH

Read: Matthew 2:19-23

After the wise men returned by another route to their home country, Herod was more than furious. He had waited in vain and now he was quite certain they were not returning. That was not enough to terminate his secret plot to kill Jesus. Then he went all out to get Him. He ordered all children from two years and below to be executed. This shows Satan’s limitation in knowledge.

Satan knows too little – in fact next to nothing compared with our God who is All-knowing. Why could Satan not inform his representative – king Herod where Jesus was? Why did he have to depend on the wise men to tell him? Up till now, Satan acts on the information he gathers through his agents from people.

Unfortunately, some believers are the ones keeping Satan informed about their plans, strategies and next moves, yet they are surprised when they meet with disappointments. Can you imagine, even though king Herod was told of a child born king, he was so mad that he could not differentiate between male and female children. He killed all, even when common sense should have told him that his target was a male. Satan is an indiscriminate life waster! He does not mind taking 10,000 lives in an attempt to waste just one valued life! And most times, it is the supposed innocents that are wasted.

No unbeliever is safe. God can do anything to protect His own. It is an irony that the parents of the children who were killed were under Satan’s control. This tells us that the greatest victims of the devil are his devotees and their families. Satan cannot keep anyone who comes under his cover!

Moreover, one would have thought that the search for the child Jesus was over the moment king Herod died. That was far from it. Why? King Herod’s son was well informed. Infact, he thought the child was born to displace him. So he continued his search, hence God warned Joseph on his return from Egypt not to stay in Judea. This was how Jesus grew up in Galilee. We should not rest on our oars even after the death of an enemy. Watch his or her descendants to know if any of them has continued from where their parents stopped.

The death of a notable enemy is not necessarily the end of his or her wickedness or dreams (Esther 8:3-14). Some people who were delivered from their strong enemy, later became preys of the children of that enemy because they were taken unawares. Be on guard! After that victory, don’t go on vacation. Stand!

Father, terminate by fire every satanic arrangement of my late enemies and their successors against my destiny.

WHICH SURPRISE PACK?

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.
