REVELATION

“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders? Exo.15:11

This is our month of revelation. Revelation is an act of receiving information about the past, the present, and the future. Revelation is to know what you never know that had happened, that is happening or will happen. Revelation is uncovering or bringing to light of that which had been previously hidden or unclearly seen. Revelation is the discovery of mysteries.

“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man. The things which God prepared for those who love Him”. But God has Revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of a man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us.” 1 Cor. 2:9-12.

Every child of God has the Spirit of God. As a child of God; you need to operate in the Spirit of God. The Spirit of God carries the power of God. The Spirit of God reveals the hearts of God to man. Remember, the Lord did not give us the Spirit of fear, (ignorance, foolishness etc) but of sound mind, boldness and self-control (2 Tim 1:7).

Many children of God are receiving revelations, but they do not understand because they are not serious in their walk with God. If you read the bible very well; you will discover that the kind of people who received the revelations and visions of God are those who were well connected and grounded in God. “If we live in the Spirit; let us also walk in the Spirit” Gal. 5:25.

Paul prayed that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him (in knowing God)” Eph. 1:17. This applies to us today. Our prayer is to know the deep things of God. When the word of God is revealed to us. We will be able to know the hope of our calling. We will know the riches of the kingdom. When our eyes are open to God’s wonders and power; we will not accept anything that is contrary to God’s word in our lives like sickness, poverty, sin (John 10:10b). When the word of God is revealed to us; we will no longer be playing with our spiritual lives.

The people of God whose eyes are opened to His mysteries, are living in victory and they are also doing great things for the Lord.

Though many of us have heard numerous times that in all things we are more than conquerors; our eyes are not open to see whom we are.

  • Your eyes need to open to see the powerful army of God around you (2 Kings 15-17).
  • Your eyes need to open and see that you are powerful than your enemies (1 John 4:4).
  • Your eyes need to open and see how you are above your enemies (Eph. 2:6).
  • Your eyes need to open and see how you are well able to do what God called you to do (Phil. 4:12).
  • Your eyes need to open and see the way where it seems to be no way (Isa. 43:19).
  • Your eyes need to open and see rivers of water flowing for you where others are dying of thirst (Isa. 43:20).
  • Your eyes need to open and see prosperity amid poverty (Gen. 26).
  • Your eyes need to open and see how Jesus took away your sickness, so that you will be sick no more (Isa. 53:5).
  • Your eyes need to open and see the abundant life Jesus Christ have died for you to have (John 10:10b).

Prayer: Holy Spirit open my eyes to see the mysteries of God, in the name of Jesus.

The Spirit of God cannot operate in our lives if we do not know the Word of God. The Word of God is Jesus Christ Himself. The word of God is the Spirit of God. (John 1:1-5; John 6:63)

In the book of Daniel; God revealed to Daniel the future on this earth. In the book of revelation, John received the revelation of the spiritual world, the tribulations and the victory in Christ Jesus. The destination of saints and destruction of sinners. In the book of Isaiah, Prophet Isaiah received the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ; how He died in heaven for us before he came to die on this earth. meaning in the garden of Gethsemane and on the cross of Calvary, Jesus was just demonstrating what He has accomplished for us in heaven. “Surely, He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healedIsa 53:4-5. (What Jesus Christ had done was all written in the past tense. Ponder!).“while we were yet sinners Christ died for us”. (Rom 5:8b).

God Revealed Mysteries (Secrets)

“Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” Jer. 33:3.

God opened Daniel’s eyes when the King wanted to destroy his magicians including Daniel and his friends because they could not tell the King His dreams and its interpretation. Daniel went into inquiring prayers and God revealed the secret to him. In the case of Joseph, God revealed again the secret of the king through His servant.

We need to pray for our eyes to open to enable us to see what God is showing us. Our hearts also need to receive understanding, so we will know how to apply the wisdom of God in our situation (Eph.1:15-23).

Prayer points.

  1. Father, I thank you for You always reveal secrets, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  2. Every spiritual cataract on my spiritual eyes be cleared away, by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. Every Uzziah in my life blocking me not to see the Lord, die in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. Every secret I need to know that will move my life forward, be revealed to me in the name of Jesus Christ.
  5. I receive the grace to abide in the revelations of the Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Pray As the Spirit Of The Lord Gives You Utterance!

TIME TO SAY YES TO JESUS!!!

If you have not yet received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour; Kindly give Him your life now, so He will accept you in His kingdom and use you to do great works.

Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me. Today I declare you as the Saviour of the whole world. Forgive all my sins, wash me clean and make me a new person, in the name of Jesus Christ.  Holy Spirit fill me with your presence and help me to love God all days of my life. Devil I denounce you today, I belongs to Jesus Christ forever, in Jesus name. Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in the name of Jesus.

NB: Congratulations! You are now born again (John 3:1-18).

* Read and study your bible daily.

* Ask questions on what you do not understand.

GOD BLESS YOU MORE!!!

DIVINE SEPARATION      

The word of God is proven. He is a shield to those who trust in Him. Ps. 18:30.

2 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” Deut. 14:2 Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the LORD am holy; and I have set you apart from the people to be Mine” Exodus 20:26.

This is our month of Divine Separation or Distinction. Divine Separation is an act of God’s favour to those whom He decided to show mercy. A separation means an act or state of moving or being set apart.

In the above scripture; the Lord said we are

· His holy people. For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earthDeut.7:6, “And they shall call them the holy people, the redeemed of the lord; and you shall be called sought out, a city not forsaken” Isaiah 62:12.

· We are chosen by Him to be His own “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give youJohn 15:16.

· We are special treasure above others “Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is MineExodus 19:5.

When God chose Abraham; He called him from a far country and made him father of all nation in Christ Jesus. Abraham obeyed the Lord and his life was distinguished from others. In Genesis 12, the Lord told Abraham to get out of his father’s house, tribe and country. Abraham obeyed this divine separation from everything he knew. In Genesis 17, the Lord reassured Him of His covenant and today the promises are fulfilled “3 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”, 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

In the case of prophet Samuel when he was growing up; he was in the house of Eli where his sons were corrupt, 1 Samuel 2:12. Samuel was able to distinguish between good and evil. He refused to follow the wicked ways of sons Eli. He followed God through the teaching of Eli the Priest and he became a notable prophet who walked on the face of the earth.

When God chose Moses as the deliverer of Israel from Egypt; he grew up in the palace of Pharaoh; he did not forget the affliction of his people, his purpose to be born and he had a burden for the freedom of his people which made him to always fight for them in any slightest opportunity, Exodus 2 & 3. The five first book was written as the books of Moses.

When the Lord chose Jonah to have a crusade at Nineveh; he refused. He tried to run away, he was unsuccessful until he submits to the will of God, Jonah 1 & 2.

When God chose King David, though he was not counted as anything by his family members. In that very day the prophet visited their house; he was not presented but God singled Him out, 1 Samuel 16. Later he was presented to the prophet, dirty, rugged and young, but God chose Him. He did not wash the body, but His heart was humble and clean “The sacrifices of God are of a broken spirit. A broken heart and a contrite spirit- These, O God, You will not despise” Psalms 51:17. Till today, King David is being celebrated in Israel.

When the Lord chose Gideon; his family background could not hinder his call. I believe His background has denied him many good things, but he was very surprised that God did not see how little and weak he is. God turns a nobody to somebody, Judges 6:14-16.

Daniel and friends decided to distinguish themselves from others not to live like pagans, bow to any idol or eat any food offered to idol. God honoured them in a foreign land. This is the discovery of Daniel in chapter 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant; he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits”.

Before I formed you in the womb; I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you”Jeremiah 1:5. This is the reason, we should not take our salvation for granted. There is hope for every child of God. As you are saved, you are in for greater surprises daily for God does exceedingly and abundantly more than what we think or ask, Ephesians 3:20. God has a very big and special plan for us when we are obedient to His word. Therefore, we should listen to His rebuke and correction and separate from every unclean things. This is time the Lord want to separate us from sickness, poverty and all kinds of miseries. He wants to separate us from our sinful mentality. Therefore, we should look unto Him who is the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrew 12:2

God called and chose us for Himself “For many are called but few are chosenMathew 22:14. Stop looking and comparing your life with others. This is how many youths are receiving all kinds of doctrines and other Christian are talking them out of their salvation.

Do not be deceived, only few know who they are, where they are and where they are going to. Separate yourself from anything that will limit your walk with God or reduce your vision. Separate yourself from the path of wickedness for you are called for God and Him alone will be honoured.

God want us to be useful on this earth. He called us to bear His glory. He called us to be separated for Him. He called us to eternal life. May our eyes open to see the hope of our calling. And stop comparing what the Lord has revealed to us with other Christian visions.

Let us allow God to lead our lives as we have answered His call to be His children. Let us also allow Him to rule in our midst. Hold on His love, which includes correction, rebuke, and strength.

Remember, He divinely separated us for Himself not for ourselves.

The people God chose for himself are:

1. Humble

2. Ready to admit their mistake

3. Always in communion with God and do not pretend before Him

4. Having the heart to do the work of God.

Conclusively, brethren 17 Therefore, “Come out from among them, And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty 2 Corinthians 6:17-18. God bless us all.

DIVINE COVERING      

Through the mercies of God; we are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion says my soul, therefore I hope in Him “(Lam 3:22-24).

Welcome to our month of DIVINE COVERING. …. “I will CAMP AROUND MY HOUSE because of the army (attacker) because of him who passes by and him who returns. No more shall an oppressor pass through them. For now, I have seen with my eyes” (Zechariah 9:1-8).

If you read the verses of the above chapter. You will realise how the enemy of God boast against Him. They boast in what they have and what they can do with what they have. They believed strongly that no one will be able to deliver God’s people from their hands. We need to know that after the fall of satan. He has been fighting the creation of God especially we who are created in the image of God. Therefore, everybody needs to be in God who has the power to protect all. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ, as your personal Lord and Saviour. You are like a Christmas goat been fed well; waiting to be slaughtered and it means you have no covering. You will not be victorious here on earth and your soul will end up in hell where the fire does not quench but only weeping and gnashing of teeth (Mathew 13:41-43).

No one is excluded from the devil’s attack either born again or non-born again; but devil’s rage is targeted more on the children of God. The devil knows the altar of God is where people gathers to receive wisdom, power, right standing, victory. He is angry with us because we have denied him and his works. Devil is our greatest enemies, he is busy recruiting God’s creation to fight against God in different ways and levels. Devil’s desire is for us to scatter. He does not want us to be in unity with God. “The devil comes to steal, kills and destroy but Jesus came to give us life in abundance” (John 10:10).

He is in the mission of stealing our good relationship with God. Stealing our godly given lives. His mission as well is to kill our lives; so, we cannot be able to lift our heads in many areas of our lives. he came to destroy what the Lord has done. He is in the mission of destroying our right standing with God, so that God will not be happy with us. Remember, “When God created everything He saw that they are good” (Genesis 1:31). Therefore, you and I should fight against all works of darkness, in the name of Jesus Christ.

You and I are the temple of God. We are His glory, beauty and testimony that He can do all things and worthy to be praise, (1 Corinthians 6:15-16). This is the reason why the Lord watches over us.

In Revelation 12:13-17, you will see how the devil fought the church but could not prevail. The devil will not prevail over your life in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The devil does fight us in our minds against our spiritual lives therefore, let us guard ourselves against his attacks by putting the whole armour of God, Eph 6:10-19. Let the word of God be our watchword.

God said, “He will destroy the confidence of our enemies”. The philistines are those powers that has been defying God’s word in our lives. They are those unbelievers who are boasting on whom they know. They are the enemies of God.

We are to overcome the attackers and oppressors by knowing that we are created by God, for God and we are in God. “You are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body, in your soul and your spirit, which are God’s1 Corinthians 6:20.

We are under God’s protection for He said, “He will be a wall of fire around us and a glory in our midst” (Zech 2:5). “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that touches you touches the apple of His eye. (Zech 2:8).” 3He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. 4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. 6 The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore” (Psalm 121:3-8)

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear(Isa. 59:1-2).

God is committed in hearing our prayers but let us make sure to live pure before Him. In Genesis 35, God told Jacob to arise, go up to Bethel, dwell there and make an altar to God. Jacob knew he cannot go or do whatever the Lord is saying with sin. He called his children to put away the foreign gods that are among them, purify themselves and change their garments which they did. As they started their journey, the bible said “THE TERROR OF GOD WAS UPON THE CITIES THAT WERE ALL AROUND THEM AND THOSE PEOPLE DID NOT PURSUE THE SONS OF JACOB. It was possible because they cleanse their lives from sin and God was in their midst. Hallelujah!

As God’s special vessels; let us keep ourselves clean so we will overcome all the attackers and oppressors around us, in the name of Jesus. As we stay in the SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH, we shall abide under HIS Mighty Shadow in the name of Jesus (Psalm 91:1). May God continue to defend His interest upon our lives in the name of Jesus. May His glory never depart from our lives, in the name of Jesus.

If you have not yet received Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour; pray this prayer.

Lord Jesus Christ, I thank You for dying for me on the cross of Calvary. Today, I come to you as a sinner who needs a Saviour. Dear Jesus, forgive all my sins and cleanse me with your blood so I may be whole. Holy Spirit I welcome you in my life, teach me the word of God and fill me every day, in the name of Jesus. Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen!

 

GREAT COMMISSION      

“Through the mercies of God; we are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion say my soul “therefore I hope in Him” (Lamentation 3:22-24).

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of GOD HE CREATED HIM, MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM. 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” (Genesis 1:27-28)

As God’s special creation, much is committed into our hands, for we are His workmanship with Him. In John 15:16 Jesus reminded us how He chose and appointed us to bear much fruit for God and that the fruits will remain even after we have departed from this earth. We are commanded to bear fruits not just few fruits but bountiful. We are also commanded to multiply, fill the earth and take control of the whole creation.

The heavenly commission is more than the worldly appointment. The appointment of this world is for a season, but heavenly commission is eternal. Brethren, the plan of God is for us to prosper meaning do well in all areas of our lives.

That is why the bible says we should work out our salvation with fear and trembling. This also means that we should put effort in the things which He has committed in our lives. We must also see to it that our lives are in line with God’s thought for us.

Our greatest and heavenly commission is to touch and change peoples’ lives for good.

We are commanded to preach the good news to everyone. This mean to tell people about our Lord Jesus Christ and point them to Him. Tell them how He is the only way to God (Acts 4:12) Tell the people what He has done in our lives and how He is willing to change their lives for good if they accept Him.

Due to the great task we are given; we need to pray for empowerment, so that we can be able carry out the tasks which the Lord has given us.

We need to pray for Physical empowerment like finances, good health and other material things.

Intellectual empowerment. In this area, we need to study the word of God to prove ourselves as workmen who need not be ashamed but rightly dividing the truth. We need to be educated in the things we are doing. We need wisdom, understanding on how to run organisations successfully. Only people that understands what they are doing will remain on top and have the means to draw souls to the kingdom of God.

Spiritual Empowerment: This is essential because we are as strong as our prayer altars and vice-versa. Our Bible study and quiet time with God is very important. When we are strong spiritually, every area of our lives will flourish like a tree planted by the river side. Our spiritual lives are the centre of our lives.

Remember in John 6:63Jesus said the word that He speaks to us are spirit and life”. It is the spirit word that controls the physical.

Many people are already dead in the spirit world which is only a matter of time before it manifests in the physical. Many people do care more about the physical things and have no understanding of spiritual one. May God open our eyes to see and understand the spirit realm, in the name of Jesus Christ.

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me, in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to this end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

In Acts 1:4, Jesus Christ asked His disciples to stay in Jerusalem, not to go anywhere until they receive the power from above, so they will be effective in their lives.

We cannot fulfil what the Lord has commanded us if we are not empowered to do so. We need God’s grace to do the works He assigned us to do. Each one of us has the things we are to fulfil. Some have neglected the plan of God for their lives. It’s a pity how many of us have left the assignments of God for our lives. Lord have mercy upon us in the name of Jesus Christ.

God’s desire is for us to be in good health as our souls prosper (3 John 2). To be in good health bodily; good financially health, good academic health, good spiritual and excelling in our daily living.

To prosper in our physical and spiritual lives; is very important to God. This empowerment is very important, so you do not have to beg before you eat; for you cannot minister to others effectively if you don’t have enough to give others. One of your ministration is to show how good and faithful is your God to His children.

People of these world have different kinds of gods which they do worship and boast about. Even though their help from these idols are limited; they are just hanging there for they don’t know who to run to or believe. When you have the word of God; you will be able to speak to them in the power of the Holy Spirit; and you will save their souls from hell.

The fruit of the righteous is the tree of life and he who wins souls is wise” (Prov. 11:30).

Soul winning is the main commission which God has committed into our hands. To preach to those who are wounded, the rejected and dejected, the broken-hearted, to open the prison of the enemy and to break the chains over His creation (Isaiah 61). We should see to it that we practice it daily. We must be hungry and thirsty for soul winning. We must pray for God to use us to save souls and He will bring them on our ways “for our steps are ordered by the Lord; like the shining sun that shines brighter unto the perfection of the day (Proverb 4:18).

Therefore, we must not joke with our spiritual lives. Daniel never joked with his spiritual life and he was never ashamed (Daniel 2 and 6). God used his life to declare His glory. Meshack, Shedrack and Abednego refused to joke with their spiritual lives, and God used their lives to change the entire kingdom starting from the king to the least of the kingdom (Daniel 3). He also used the lives of the apostles to save and do great things because they yielded their lives to Him (book of Acts).

When we allow God to empower us; we will become fearless, courageous and faithful children of God. We will begin to speak as the Lord gives us utterance (Jeremiah 1:4-10). We will be able to confront what has been confronting us. We will begin to step on the ground which we were unable to step on. When we are empowered; all these signs will follow us who believed in Jesus Christ’s name, we will cast out demons; we will speak with new tongues; we will take up serpents; and if we drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt us; we will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover”(Mark 16:17-18) Hallelujah!

I do not know which area of your life that need God’s empowerment. Is it your spiritually life, physical life or intellectual life? Call upon the Lord today for He said “If there is anyone who lack wisdom (boldness, knowledge, understanding, purpose, vision, finances, good health, salvation, peace, love, joy, etc.), let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally(freely) and without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5). Ask Him freely. Be open to Him; He knows you. He will direct your steps.

Let us work in God’s vineyard. Let us be faithful to our callings. Let us serve God with fear and trembling so when we meet Him one day, He will not reject us but accept us to His glory. God bless us all abundantly!

 

“Through the mercies of God; we are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion say my soul “therefore I hope in Him” (Lam. 3:22-24).

I would like to thank God who always prepare us before we start any of our annual journeys. For us to have this greater harvest; there are processes which we need to follow and godly principles we need to abide by.

As a ministry; we have entered our 9th year which is OUR YEAR OF GREATER HARVEST. To experience this greater harvest there are salient truth we need to know.

Remember, every harvester is a sower. A sower’s harvest is determined by his seeds and tending to the plants. The more seeds you sow; the more your harvest will be. God is a giver of seed to the sowers. Before you sow, you must prepare the ground. God is not a talkative, but He prepares His children against the plan of the devil. He said “Can I do anything without letting my servant Abraham (slot your name here) know? God is the one who reveal the deep and secret things for He knows what is in darkness. Many people may block their ears to the Word of God, but you must heed to His word. “He answered and said to them because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom, But to Them It Has Not Been Given ‘Blessed are your eyes for you can see and your ears for you can hear” Math. 13:11, 16. For many have desired to hear what you are hearing but they cannot’. They cannot hear because they are given probate mind. You are blessed, child of God! We are blessed to be in the family of God. Hallelujah.

This is the reason why we must listen earnestly, attentively and intently to the voice of God. We must be concerned on the weapons and advices God want us to use in any battle.

I say then, walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lust against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law” (Gal. 5:16-18)

God is warning us not to walk in the flesh. Flesh is our ability, our weaknesses, our unrighteousness, our fears, our connections. Everything which talk and depends on our physical means. This has taunted our greatness and success in our walk with God. Our flesh has been our setback for a very long time. Whenever God is telling us to stand, we are so afraid and unable to do so. We look for reasons why we should not do it.

To walk in the Spirit is to walk in God’s ability, faith, connections and righteousness. The Spirit and the flesh are enemies. They have nothing in common. They are contrary to one another. The Spirit will always tell you the possibility of God. The Spirit will tell you ‘how strong and mighty you are’. ‘How favoured and lifted you are. ‘How glorious and beautiful you are’ ‘how hopeful you are in Christ’ etc. (Judges 6:14, Luke 1:28).

Greater Harvest is our portion this year. All our toils, sowing, learning, struggling has come to an end, in the name of Jesus. For us to experience a Greater Harvest in our life; these are some of the things we should know and apply

- Flesh must die. Ask the flesh to keep quiet not to tell you anything because you are a spiritual man in this physical world. You must speak what you see with your spiritual eyes. Speak what you hear with your spiritual ears. Stop judging things according to the physical appearance. Let God be God, whatever He is telling you to do; that you should do. Even if it’s logical or not; do what the Lord is telling you. Stop going about looking for human approval or support on how to disobey God. Mary told the servants at the wedding of Canaan, when the wine finished; ‘whatever He tells you to do, do it’ (John 2:5). God always warn us before danger. If you must harvest greatly in every area of your life; you must crucify the flesh.

Tell the flesh that ‘I am able’. I know God who knows people’. ‘I will not compromise because of promotion or connection’. Let us stop pretending to be spiritual in the church. After church service; we are arguing on what God has said. Christianity is more than attending church services; it’s more about believing and doing what the Lord said. ‘Whatever He tells you to do, do it!

- Our Confidence: “Do not cast away your confidence, for it has a great reward” (Heb. 10:35) Do not cast away your confidence, trust, hope which you have in the Lord. Do not throw away the relationship you and God shared because of mere pot of beans like Esau. Do not cast away your confidence in God because of that girl/boy you are running after. Run after God and He will give you the desires of your heart according to His riches in glory (Phil. 4:6-7). Remember Jesus, when He was on the stormy sea and the boat was shaking, He was calm because He believed He will reach where He is going, and nothing can stop Him. (Math. 8:23-27). Always remember that God who calls you is faithful and He will bring to pass whatever He has said’ (1 Thess. 5:24).

I should be confident in my work and walk with the Lord. I remembered in 2007; the Lord commanded us to give N$10,000-00 Channel 7 Radio. It was not easy at all, but God told us that every month we must give N$1000 for a period of 10 months. To His faithfulness, He was provided the money. That was how the church started to have money in the account. When God gives you instruction. You are to do your part; He will do His. God is looking for faithful servants. Be the faithful servant and you will reap bountifully.

Being in the confidence of God is abiding or feeding in His faithfulness; and in the faithfulness of God is you abiding in the Word of God. When you abide in God’s Word; you will feed in His faithfulness. Isaac heard God telling him to stay in the land. He did not disobey. He was rewarded bountifully. He reaps bountifully and became a very great, prosperous, victorious and successful man (Gen. 26). Walking in the Spirit means taking decision according to what God say and not according to human ideas. Sarah pregnancy was far beyond human comprehension, but God made it happen. She got pregnant in a very old age.

- Stop Murmuring: When you are murmuring on what God has said or over the issues of life, you are saying God is not good to you. Whatever devil planned against you; God will turn it for your good. (Rom. 8:28). Sometimes, we don’t see what God is shielding us from. It is for your good; when people are speaking against you. It is for your good when things are not working out because the Lord wants to make you stronger. Looking at what the enemy intends against you with the eyes of the spirit, you will know how to turn it into your goodness. Murmuring is what kept the children of Israel wandering and many of them died in the wilderness for 40 years. If you walk in the Spirit; you will have the ability to know that everything is for your good.

Remember, God will never give you what He knows you cannot bear. He will always deliver you from all kinds of temptation which may come your way (1 Corinth 10:13). Therefore, you must be strong in your heart to say no to sin. Stand strong in the Lord.

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses” (1 Tim 6:12). The fight of faith is by walking in the spirit. Abraham walked in the spirit and receive the promise of the spirit. (Heb.11 through chapter 12) All those who walked in the Spirit lived unlimited Life.

- Learn spiritual warfare and fight without fear by putting on the whole armour on your spirit-man so that you will be victorious in every area of your life (Eph. 6:10-18).

Devil cannot stop the man who walks in the spirit. Once you take steps of faith, serpent and scorpions will begin to die before you reach there. Walk in the spirit means following God. Carnal people will think you are alone and the spiritual people will see you are with God. God is committed to provide everything you need.

The only project you must not lay your hands on are those projects which God is not involved. The battle you are not to fight is where God is not the commander. Do not undertake a journey where God is not the captain. You cannot afford to live a photocopy life. ‘Ah I saw sister Mary doing it; I will also do it’. Who told you to do it?

- Work Hard. “Whatever your hand finds to do; do it very well” (Eccl 9:10).

In this Year, Every day:

- Seek the Lord in every situation. Hear what the Lord is saying. Seeking, desiring, willing for God’s will to be done. Jesus prayed in Gethsemane that let God’s will be done and His will was done. Jesus was able to fulfil His mission. We have moved into the realm where we commune with God individually, to know Him better. Those who are going to stay on this mountain are those who are willing to climb the mountain. Those who are ready to hear what the Lord is saying. Seek the Lord not men or His miracles. (Math 6:33). ‘Father, I have nothing, but you have all and in you I have everything, Hallelujah.

- Keep Yourself Pure: “Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honour,… (2 Tim. 2:21). Remember, the unrighteous cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinth 6: 9-10). It is very important to keep yourself pure. Determine every day to live a godly live and God will strengthen you. Jesus is coming soon, and it will be when we are not even expecting Him (Math 24:44). Therefore, let us work hard in keeping ourselves clean.

- Command the elements to fight for you every day (Job 38:12, Judges 5:19-22).

- Allow Holy Spirit to Lead You: Holy spirit is not an arrogant spirit. I heard many people saying, ‘I am anointed but I made people to look down on me. Whenever I am greeting someone, even if it’s a small child I do nod my head’. Why should I be arrogant, the call is for God. The anointing is from God. Everything I have is from God. The more you walk with Jesus; the more you will be humble because you know by your own strength you will not be where you are or do what you are doing. The only thing Holy Spirit will put in you is confidence. When you start walking with the Lord; the unbelievers will call you arrogant.

Many people have been used to fight against me for many years. When they saw all their attack towards me was not reaching its target. They created another mechanism by say that ‘I am too proud’. No, I am not by His special grace. I have my confidence in God. I know even if you throw me in the desert; I believe the Lord will make rivers of water to flow for me.

Sit and ask yourself this question. “What is the most important thing in my life? Is it to fight that woman or sell my products? CONCENTRATE ON THE IMPORTANT THINGS OF YOUR LIFE.

Meditate on the scriptures every day. Pray every day for Holy Spirit to lead and guide you. Be a prayerful person. Fight sin, fight evil company. Fight and resist even unto blood for God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek/serve Him. (Jer. 29:13; Heb. 11:6). May God bless us all more this year!

Topic: O LORD! CORRECT MY ERRORS There is an evil spirit known as the spirit of error and its agenda is to push the children of God in all kinds of errors. These errors come with human good reasons and feel extremely comfortable to commit the error/s. “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 4:6. This spirit has worked and hindered the works of God, because it succeeded to push men of God into all manners of errors. This spirit is so subtle that if we are not sober, we cannot even discover it. May the Lord set us free from this subtle spirit, in the name of Jesus.
