You Will Be Rewarded

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Read from Matthew 25:32-46

We all know the story of Jonathan and David in 1 Samuel 18 where Jonathan, heir to the throne of his father King Saul took a liking to David, a rival of sort, of his father and the throne. Jonathan ultimately died with his father, due to King Saul’s many sins and falling out of favor with Jehovah. David against all odds got to the throne and one faithful day, he remembered Jonathan. King David repaid Jonathan’s kindness to Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s sons – 2 Samuel 9:1-13

Ask, Seek, and Knock
Ask the Lord to remember all the good seeds you have sown. Lord let them begin to grow and give me a harvest of hundreds and thousands I pray. Amen

What am I implying? The Lord said seed time and harvest time shall never seize as long as the earth remains. Genesis 8:22. Good and evil remains and they both have consequences. The good you do and the bad you do, you will reap.

Christian’s in many denominations are often led incessantly to break curses, generational curses, ancestral curses, and so on that has been in their family due to the sins of their forefathers etc, without balancing it with request for heaven to repay the good that someone from this same lineage, generation past has done for and unto the Lord!

Many of us has store houses of bounties that the Lord want us to access, however, we are busy closing, and shutting the door of an empty room labelled curses that heaven has emptied out at our rebirth and the many times we have applied and pleaded the precious blood of Jesus!

This is where religion, and false preachers have kept many, in perpetual ignorance. Taking you on and off the same route and cycle of these activities and that activity without recourse. No wonder the scriptures says my people perish for lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6

Friends, Abrahams blessings are yours because you are his seed by faith- Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:7 understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham. 8 The scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”. So also, the blessings of past generation can be yours too.

And you, yourself have labored, you have sown some good seeds in fertile ground, you have fed the Lord, comforted the Lord, and you did clothed the Lord in that sister or brother you covered their nakedness – Please note that the Lord owes no one. He will repay your good deeds. You must however, remind the Lord, not that He forgets, however, you must ask that your reward comes speedily even as this year round up.

God will yet open that store house holding your reward IF you ask. Ask and you shall receive – Matthew 7:7. Psalms 65:11 says, God will crown this year 2020 with His bounty, and your carts will overflow with abundance. Amen

Confidence Walks Boldly!

There is a confidence you will have when you know that the Lord will never leave nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


There is a confidence you will have when you know He that watches over you neither sleep not slumbers. Psalms 121: 3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.


There is a confidence and assurance you will have when you know that the Power that raised Christ Jesus from the grave is at work within you. Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies  because of his Spirit who lives in you.

If you are Christ’s then you are an overcomer. Be confident of this!


Oh, there is a confidence that you will have when you know that no weapon of the enemy formed against you and all that concerns you will ever prosper –Isaiah 54:17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,”declares the Lord.


Friends, there is a way you will walk confidently when you know that there are angels station all around you, to guide you in all your ways. Psalms 91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

Unfortunately, many are ignorant and thus in bondage to lies! Many are been fed words that seemingly declare Jesus as the head over all principalities and powers, yet these words exalt Satan and his agent, being the Lord of this earth, all powerful, all seeing, and thus they are fearful of the elemental forces of darkness. Colossians 2:20  Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 


Friends, Jesus is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords – Deuteronomy 10:1717 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. Revelation 19: 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords. He is the head over all those forces of darkness that has or want to hold you in bondage. Colossians 2:10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.

You must break free from any and every form of bondage. Jesus Christ by His death on the cross, He did go down into Sheol and triumph over principalities and powers, Jesus made a public spectacle of the devil and rose up after 3 days, He showed Himself to many and then ascended unto heaven.
Jesus is seated in heavenly places above all these principalities and powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, the spiritual wickedness in high places that you fear and has kept you in perpetual bondage.

Jesus is from above- John 3:31 The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. And whatever is from above is above all! Believe this friends! You have been set free from bondage to fear-sin!

You will need to read the scriptures, the account of the life, death, and ascension of Christ Jesus for yourself! Trust every bit of what you read. It is the truth. Receive confidence in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ today in Jesus name I pray.
Shalom

The Eyes Tells Secrets

Luke 11:34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

The eye is the window to the soul I hear this very often. Also, what we see with our eyes is a pointer to the state of our soul.

You can see love by just looking into someone’s eyes or hate as the case may be. You can see sorrow and despair in the eyes without a single drop of tear. I have been seeing beauty in a different dimension since the Corona Virus changed our world. I will look at old wrinkly faces and see love, compassion, kindness, strength, gentleness, calmness, and can even imagine stories of what these eyes can tell.

At dinner on my birthday a few days back my son leaned over to me and he whispered she is beautiful mummy. I was taken aback and looked at him, asking how do you know, because the waiter had mask on. He responded, her eyes mummy!. You see, our eyes says so much more than we would like others to know about us.

Also what you see is a reflection of the state of your heart and soul. To many people, nothing looks beautiful to them. Everything is ugly, dark, and worthless. This is the state of their being and has nothing to do with the object of their sight/wrath.

To some everything is in $$$ sign, not that this is a bad thing. However, when every relationship, every alliance, every activity, action, reaction, endeavour, and opportunities are all in $$$ sign, that is a problem. This means mammon has taken over!

To such people money is what dictates their love, friendship, kindness, alliances, interactions, respect, and regards. They can and will do anything for $$$. There profession of faith is directly proportional to their finances, and you are only as good a being as the amount of dollar they think you can bring, yield, or give to them.

I pray that we will all take note of what our Lord Jesus said, ” See to it, then that the light within you is not darkness – Luke 11:35; and pray for a renewing of our minds so our eyes can truly see Christ Jesus as He is, and His presence in the lives of the people around us.

Shalom!

Nigeria Weeps!

The leadership, through Nigerian Army cut down the shinning 🌟 of tomorrow!

10/20/2020

Friends, help me to rally for help to salvage what is left of sanity in Nigeria! Pray! Pray! Pray!

Let call on God to intervene on behalf of the Nigerian youth. Help me to petition heaven for an end to the shedding of unarmed youth protesting for better governance.

Thank you all!

Vulnerable? Grace Will Speak!

You must learn to keep your weakness between you and your Savior.

No matter how weak your flesh is, may the Lord strengthen you with might by His Holy Spirit in your inner man – Ephesians 3:16.

Your Spirit man need to be alert at all times, atuned to heavens frequency, or else you will become a shish kebab in the hand of the enemies of your soul! May the Lord shield His anointed. Amen

Lean on your Savior. Receive strength today in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Your bosom friend may have been waiting for that very day of your vulnerability to strike you down dead!

You must never forget the story of Samson and Delilah – Judges 16

Father Lord, every slimy snake lurking around, waiting and watching for us to slip so as to strike, may they wait endlessly.

Father let us never break the edge and give room for the serpent to strike in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom!

Your Choice! The Word! Scarcity! Heaven Or Hell?

Amos 8:11“The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land–not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.8:12Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it.

Friends, does it not seem like that time is now?

The Word of God is not really scarce, just that it’s been watered down, and twisted to soothe our every whim.

How often have you and I heard a sermon about having a pure heart, living right before God and man, being kind, helping the poor, looking out for other brethren, being truthful, standing for fairness, justice, and so on?

When was the last time I heard or speak anything about heaven and hell? Hmmm 🤔🤔🤔!

The Word of God is not only about what we can get from God in this life like prosperity – material possessions, wealth creation and gathering, getting married and staying married, being fruitful in our bodies, etcetera, but how we are supposed to live, to be a light that shines in darkness and darkness cannot comprehend it!

Now is the time to desire the sincere milk of the Word of God 1 Peter 2:2 so we can grow past give me this and that, to God make me a vessel of honour in your hands, use me to quench someones thirst, and change the trajectory of situations in my community, let me be your hands and feet to seek the lost and downtrodden, use me for your glory Lord, make me your battle axe with which to dismantle and crush every structure you have not built in the heart of your kingdom, make me a beckon of hope for the hopeless, a voice for the voiceless.

Use me Lord, use us for your glory we ask in Jesus mighty name. Amen

We have to step away from the transactional gospel a little to see beyond our horizon and ask, if am called home today, where exactly is home? I know no one likes talking of going home but the fact remains that we all will one day. That is One day we do not know about! Should we not prepare in advance and trust that Christ will welcome us as He promised?

Heaven or hell? Where will it be friends?

You have the opportunity to make amends today. Ask the Lord to help you. I am also asking for me and mine! We all need help and grace to stay true to the confession of our faith and walk therein in spirit and in truth, glorifying God.

Father we ask for grace to live right before you with eternity as our focus. Take our eyes off the transient and laser focus us on the immortal we ask in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom!

Humbled! We All! Our World!

Hmmmm!
In the very thing in which they boasted, Covid has humbled them!

The World in her entirety is humbled! That is, you and I!

The facts still remains that this season is the best ever for some people.

God is Sovereign!

God works in mysterious ways! Even when the world is set at disarray, God is setting up some people for greatness!

Friends, it is an individual thing! What do you see the Lord doing this season?

Isaac sowed in the land, during famine/ Covid/ distress, and reaped a thousand – Genesis 26:12

What do you see?
What do you want to see happening for you, yours, your land and her people?
Seek the face of God for your desired results by faith!
Put faith to work!
Take action!
Voila!
It is done?
By God’s Holy Spirit.

Shalom!

An Encounter! A Vision!

An encounter with Jesus Christ is all you need to see vision – Acts 9:12. Saul had an encounter with Jesus on the way to Damascus. He prayed and saw a vision even before hands were laid on him by Ananias.

What a comfort this is!

Just a genuine encounter with Jesus, and you will never remain the same.

Acts 9:10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!”

“Yes, Lord,” he answered.

11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”

13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem.

Your life will change for the better. Your story will change. Your life will be transformed by an encounter with the Lord Jesus, with the person of the Holy Spirit.

Seek for a touch from God today. Pray for an encounter and be transformed.

Shalom!

Lay It Bare

Hebrews 4:13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Meditating on this scripture will help you to take stock of yourself, and be vulnerable before your maker.

Friends, we can fool the smartest person on earth but we cannot, we can never fool God. Whatever is up our sleeves He knows before the thought entered our hearts.

I am doing myself a favor, you should also friends. Let us come boldly to the throne of God – Hebrews 4:16, through the blood of Jesus, to ask for mercy as we lay bare our hearts.

Almighty, All Knowing, All Seeing, All Sufficient, and Only Wise God, we humbly come by the blood of Jesus Christ, we confess our sins, doubts, disbelief, disobedience and present our frailty before you. Help us Lord, and guide us away from the sins that easily beset us.

Have mercy on us Father, and deliver us from all forms of deception with which we have been deceiving eachother, and presumably you our Father.

Grant us the grace Lord to be true, for we have tried of ourselves but have failed time after time. We need your help to really be truthful in all our dealings with eachother, and ultimately you

Lord, to think we can hide anything from you! Psalms 138:7 Where can we go from your presence? Psalms 139:4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.

Have mercy and help us Lord!
Thank you Father for for we know you hear us, and as such we know we have answers to what we have asked of you. Be magnified oh Lord in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
