SCRIPTURES THAT GIVES YOU POWER OVER THE SERPENT

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Acts 28 :1-6
Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold.

Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live.”

But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead, but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.

Luke 10:19
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you

Psalm 91:13
You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

Rev. 12:7-9,19
And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.

The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

….Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring–those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.

Sex questions: Why should my wife deny me sex?

Posted on

This is an adult content page!

Can a wife refuse to consent to sexual demand from her husband?
Under normal circumastances, she has no right to deny you sex, if she is really your wife.In a marriage, both of you have a right to demand for sex from either at any time. Even if you have lately offended, it is not proper for you to use sex as a weapon of punishment. It could better be use to settle quarrels.

I Corinthians 7:2-6 states:

“Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: [It is] good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Defraud ye not one the other, except [it be] with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. But I speak this by permission, [and] not of commandment. “

Christians and money management

Posted on

• Husband and wife should come together and discuss financial issues. Plan together and trust God together.
• There is a known income and an unknown income. Known income is such as Salaries and expected revenues. Unknown income is donations, gifts, and contracts that you never expected.
• In most cases, the known income can only cover your running expenses and the unknown income can be substantial and can be used for capital projects.
• You should take steps as a family to strengthen your financial income. Do things that will increase your known income. If your known income is so small, pray that God increases it. Also look for ways of cutting costs.
• Don’t live alone by your known income, such as your salary of expected revenue.
• Stretch your faith for financial provision.

Habakkuk 2:4 – The Just Shall Live By Faith• Plan for your unknown income. Make a budget, list a number of scriptures that deals with divine provision and begin to trust God for this unknown income.

Happy sex life: tips for parents

Sex in marriage

This is an adult content page, don’t read if you are under 18 years old, or better still if you are un married.

1. Sex is not a game like football where there must be spectators. It is meant to be enjoyed between married couples in the privacy of their homes.
2. Ideally, couples should have a room to themselves in their homes, and they should ensure they are the only persons in the rooms before and when having sexual relationship.
3. Many times parents underestimate their kids- thinking that they are sleeping when parents are having sexual relationships.
4. It is not proper to assume that they are sleeping when they are not actually sleeping. Anything your children see you doing, they will like copy and attempt to practice it.
5. If you and your children are staying in a room, parents must arrange the timing of their sexual relationship in such a way that the children are not turned to passive observers.
6. Whatever you expose your children to; they will end up doing it.
7. It is ungodly for Christians to attend sex parties, sex swims, or indulge in internet sex.
8. Couples should pray together before any sexual relationship.

This is a way of recognizing that God is the one that gives you the ability to enjoy yourself sexually, and also to commit before the Lord what you desire as the outcomes of the sexual relationship. Do you wish it should result in a pregnancy or otherwise? Moreover, you can determine the gender of your children through prayers said before any sexual act.

This is a sample prayer:

Father Lord, we thank you for keeping us for one another, give us the grace to enjoy one another in Jesus name.

Beware of Idols

Posted on

The clarion call today is that every Christian should carry out a spiritual check of your homes, offices, environment and locations.

 

 John

5:21 Dear children, guard yourselves from idols.

 

 

 

 

There are various subtle ways the enemy penetrates the lives of Christians for evil. One of these ways is through satanic objects and materials which the devil may use as a foothold to operate in our lives. The Bible extols us to be as wise as snakes. Read the rest of this entry »

What is Idolatry?

Posted on

1 John 5:21 Dear children, guard yourselves from idols.

Idolatry is one of the evil practices that are detestable to God. Broadly defined, Idolatry is acknowledging other gods and worshipping them, apart from Jehovah God.

However, this write up is not concerned about known idolatry practices. There are other forms of idolatry. Any desire that you cannot control has become an idol to you.

God had given us the power of self will and self control. If you have any passion or hobby that is overcoming your power of self resistance, then that habit has become an idol and your indulgence in that habit is tantamount to idolatry.

The danger here is that some of these habits may affect your devotion to God and your commitment to Christianity.

Can you remember some of the habits that have become your Idols in this sense?

If you are a fan of any sports star or sports event, and watching or playing that event is taking too much of your productive time, then you are guilty of idolatry.

If you spend too much time in playing any game, the time you should have spent in other productive activity including godly activities like reading the Bible, then you are practicing idolatry.

If you are un able to fast for a few days, because you cannot not do without eating, then there is a big spiritual problem. If any where you go and you see food, you feel like eating and drinking, then food has become your idol and you need deliverance.

If you sleep and snore all the time, then you are wasting your life away. There is a time to sleep and a time to work. The Bible says there is a purpose for every activity under the Sun and a time for every thing.
Sleep is good, but must not become you idol.

Are you married and you have several relationships with your spouse several times a day. In other words, are you a sex addict? Then Sex has become your idol, because there should be moderation for every thing.

Do you spend all the day watching Cable TV and films? You are into idolatry.

Please do a check today of any activity that has become compulsive for you, that you cannot do without. If there is any if such, then you are into a form of idolatry because these idols will be taking your attention away from GOD.

Identify your idols, cast out the spirits behind them, and set yourself free in Jesus name.

John 6:4-15

4Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near. 5When he looked up and saw a large crowd coming towards him, Jesus said to Philip, ‘Where are we to buy bread for these people to eat?’

6He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he was going to do. 7Philip answered him, ‘Six months’ wages* would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little.’ 8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him,

 9‘There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many people?’

 10Jesus said, ‘Make the people sit down.’ Now there was a great deal of grass in the place; so they* sat down, about five thousand in all.

11Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.

 12When they were satisfied, he told his disciples, ‘Gather up the fragments left over, so that nothing may be lost.

 13So they gathered them up, and from the fragments of the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten, they filled twelve baskets.

14When the people saw the sign that he had done, they began to say, ‘This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world.’

 

There is something in you the whole world is waiting for. God had deposited a blessing in you hands that will change the destiny of others. You need to rediscover yourself and manifest. Read the rest of this entry »

15 Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint.

16 And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David.

17 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succored him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel.

18 And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant.

19 And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.

20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.

21 And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimeah the brother of David slew him.

22 These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.

-2 Samuel 21 vs. 15-22

2009 prophecy for christians

Posted on Updated on

Memorise: “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11)

Read: John 10:6-11

 Pastor E. Adeboye RCCG

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee” (1 Timothy 4:16).

Another area a shepherd should watch over the flock is in continuity in sound doctrines and in practice of the same. In Paul’s second letter to Timothy, he charged the latter in verse 13 of the first chapter: “Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus“. A shepherd should stick with the undiluted Word of God to earn the respect of the sheep.

Today, in many circles, leaders are diluting the Word of God with human wisdom and philosophy. Any leader who feels he or she knows God’s Word more than God, has out-lived his or her relevance both to God and His flock. Revelation says you must not doctor the Scriptures.

Also, there is need to put whatever you preach or teach into practice. This is an effective way to watch over your flock. Until your subordinates see you practicing what you teach, they may never do so. A doers life-style adds compulsion, expediency and credibility to your message. John 10:4 says it is the duty of the shepherd to lead before the sheep can follow.

In today’s passage, another area the shepherd must watch is in identifying and preventing the wolves and thieves that are after the sheep. It is the caring and watchful shepherd that will easily notice areas of backsliding, compromise and pitfalls.

If you are not watchful, God will not give you the information that will place you ahead of events in your local assembly. It is a shame if Heaven bypasses the under- shepherd concerning events in the lives of members or family.

During a praise session, the Spirit said the spirit of death had been sent against somebody there, but that the Lord had helped the individual to avert that death. Members thanked God and left. About a week later, news came that a young lady under the influence of certain unforeseen forces attempted suicide. She was taken to the hospital and survived it because God had earlier revealed Satan’s plan and annulled it. Are you watching effectively over your family, church or the flock in your care? Have you earned God’s trust?

A lot is expected from leaders. Are you meeting up?

Pastor Adeboye’s new year message

Memorise: “And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things” (Acts 5:11)

Read: Acts 5:1-11

When God requests that we draw nearer to Him, it is for our good. When divine fire freely burns in your life, you will automatically become a solution to the problems of those around you. When problems become testimonies through God’s grace on your life, you suddenly become famous. And other good things follow. If there is anything you should ask God for this year, it is for more of His fire.

 The greater the divine fire operating inside you, the easier you possess your possessions. It is a shame for a spirit-filled believer to run from Satan’s errand boys and girls. If God’s fire is on you, Satan or his cohorts will not be able to defecate on you. Due to absence of divine fire, many believers today are carrying different yokes and loads of the enemy. Every satanic yoke on your shoulders is destroyed today in Jesus’ Name.

Whether you will remain a victim or conqueror is a decision you have to make. The Early church was a fiery church. God was always in the house, and so anything could happen. Agents of darkness that came in were exposed and disgraced. Those who came with satanic schemes were dealt with.

In Acts 5:1-11, a couple who could not discern this fire was roasted by it, because they lied. Today, we tolerate things the Early church regarded as a taboo. This is why the fire of revival is fast dying.

“And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things (Acts 5:11). The presence of the fire brought fear to all and sundry. One thing that is lacking in today’s church, is the absence of the fear of God.

A brother told his pastor he was travelling to the East. A sister also of that local assembly told the same pastor she was travelling in another direction. But unknown to members, they had secretly arranged to meet at a particular hotel to have a ‘good time’. While they were feeding their flesh, the Holy Spirit exposed it. By the time they returned, they were shocked to be told, welcome from your adulterous trip in such and such a hotel.

Why are ushers and pastors stealing from church money today? It is because of absence of God’s fire. Why are leaders comfortably sinning yet remaining in ministry? It is because the Pentecostal fire has gone out. Ask God for the return of the Pentecostal fire in your life, family, and church. A pastor who cannot affect his congregation in holiness lacks God’s fire.

 According to Proverbs 19:23, evil has one powerful repellant – the fear of God. Ask God for grace to wear this covering always.

 

Is Prayer to Virgin Mary biblical or Idolatry?

Posted on Updated on

  • Should Christians pray to Virgin Mary?
  • By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com
  • prayer to virgin mary
  • “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2. By this you know the Spirit of GOD; Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.You are of God little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world .They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error”

    1 JOHN 4: 1-6

    1. Many religions believe there is God and they use different intermediaries to link up with God. Even some Christian denominations also use some intermediaries to reach God, whether an image, a human being, money etc. It must be known however that there is the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
    2. The spirit of truth is the spirit of God while the spirit of error is the spirit of Satan. Some people believe they are worshipping God whereas they are worshipping Satan through the influence of the spirit of error. They set up images or human beings in the guise that they are worshipping God.
    3. Do not be deceived the only way to God is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. “ I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except though Me.” (John 14:6).
    4. The litmus test of knowing whether you are worshipping God or not is your acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as Lord. If you worship Mary, Mammon or any other image or your Pastor, Reverend, Bishop or Pope is placed above JESUS then that is the spirit of error.
    5. If your religion does not acknowledge Jesus as Lord, the spirit of error controls it.
    6. Check yourself today to see if truly you are worshiping God or the spirit of error. If you are worshipping the spirit of error in ignorance , REPENT and begin to worship God by acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord.
    7. If you do not believe in God, you are an atheist and it is the spirit of error at work in your life. You cannot afford to make an error in life. Repent now and begin to serve God through Jesus Christ.
    8. Do you want to be reconciled with God, through Jesus the Lord and Saviour? Then say this simple prayer:
    9. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and have fallen short of your glory. I genuinely repent from all my sins and pledge to go and sin no more. I accept your plan to reconcile mankind to you through Jesus Christ, who you sent in your name.
    10. I believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, and died on the Cross to pay the penalty for my sins and redeem me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I pray that His blood washes my sins away. I invite the Holy Spirit to rule my Life. I am born again in Jesus name.

    Prophetic Declarations
    I will not worship God in error. I recognize the truth that Jesus is the only way to God the Father, I hold on the truth.

    Prayers

    1. Jesus the truth of God, set me free from the spirit of error.
    2. I refuse to be deceived by the devil.
    3. Spirit of error, you will not succeed in controlling my heart in Jesus name.
