Speak To The King!

Judges 17: 6 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. This sentence was repeated three more times in the book. It means everyone made rules and lives by whatever pleases them per time. They were a law unto themselves, answerable to no one. No guidelines, no best practices, agreed to stipulations of how we ought to live, behave and serve God and others. The list goes on! So is chaos!

King here refers to leadership,  a supreme being, authority and to bring it down to this moment, for a man, a King is first God Almighty, Father – spiritual and biological, bosses, and anyone in authority above you.

A king to a woman represents God Most High first, husband if you are married, Father – both spiritual and biological, bosses and anyone in authority above you. To both sexes, then when there is no “King’, that is, when there is no one we are answerable to, that is when everyone does as they saw fit! We behave and act as we deem fit which does not necessarily mean good, bad or perfect, for you know our knowledge and perspective at best are one-sided and narrow often.

When we do not have the full picture of a situation, we bring tools we think is ideal to play. This most often will give temporary relief, but, to garner a long lasting solution and relief, knowing and having all sides of the issue tabled before us will enable us to proffer the best solution which is where the need for a “King” comes in.

The role of a King cannot be emphasized enough in a nation, life of its people and individuals. Therefore, be careful and prayerful! Only the King Eternal has the full picture of your life and He has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit to guide us. You must be answerable to God, the King Eternal and to those He has set over you. Only then, can you actually live to please Him that died for you 

In many instances, Kings have been the downfall of a nation and also the strength, prosperity, peace, and well-being of its people. The King then, that only good emanate from is the King Eternal. From the category of Kings, you have choices to make except in the King – biological father. All others then require you to seek the King Eternal’s input to make the best choice.

Have you been making wrong choices? Does it seem you cannot make right choice since all your choices have been “ish” afterward? Will you go to the King Eternal this moment? Ask Him to help you to make the right choices, not the choices based on your logic, but according to His will for you.

In organizations, we will say industrial best practices, which basically is a generally accepted way of doing things that give the best result superior to other means. Therefore, friends, let your next choice be made in line with the best practices, God’s best for you.

This brings me to this question! Have you given your life to Jesus Christ? I mean the King Eternal! Yes. Praise God! If you haven’t, today is the day to do that. You see, friends, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23! We all need a King, a Savior, and His name is Jesus Christ, be you a man or a woman, young or old! Jesus Christ died for us, let us live for Him! Repent of your sinful ways friend, accept Christ Jesus into your heart, confess Him as the King and Lord over your life. Speak to the King now!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Fear Not! And Obey!

There are many ways that we stand in our own way. When God gives you instruction and you disobey it because of fear or whatever, you are standing in the way of receiving the blessings due for obeying.

Many time we are more concerned about what others will say, how we may be perceived by people that we do not deliver messages God gave us to deliver. Even though we’ve been told not to look at the faces. Yoruba say “eni ran ni ni se la un beru”. Jeremiah 1:7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LordYet, what do we do? We withhold information that will benefit others, some info that will protect another from harm’s way, yet more that will save lost souls from eternal damnation. We dilute our messages to tickle ears, to be politically correct. This is absolute disobedience, which has ended up standing in the way of our impacting the world!

Ezekiel 2: And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people. You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious. But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious people; open your mouth and eat what I give you.” What more do I to know? What further instruction do I have to receive in order to do the Masters bidding?

Acts 5:29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! Stop standing in your own way! Obey the Lord with speed. Trust Him to back up His Word! I mean you have seen God in action the few times you obey His instructions. Haven’t you? What will it take you to go all the way obeying God’s every instruction? Stop cherry picking, weighing it by what affects you personnally, will generate controversy and so on. Just obey the Lord and you will see the heavens open over you. The Lord is waiting on you and time wait for no one. Summon up courage and do the Lord’s bidding.

Be born again friends. You need a Savior, His name is Jesus Christ, He is waiting for you to call upon Him! Don’t keep Christ waiting!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Faulty Structure Reined In! Holy Spirit!

I was praying yesterday and I blurted out some words that made me start thinking about what I was actually saying! You know like, “where did that come from?”.

It was a personal prayer about this and that. Just having fellowship with my Father and then I was led to touch on some other stuff, which led to this prayer:

Father every structure that has been put in place by the devil in and around the hearts of men and women, around and in the body of believers that is mitigating against your plan and purpose to bring in much more people into the sheepfold, let such structure be destroyed today in Jesus mighty name. You stated in Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Whatever is not of you in and around me, and all must come down Lord!

Like the wall of Jericho fell down flat – Joshua 6:20, Hebrew 11:30, Oh Lord, every invincible barrier mounted to keep as many as you have called to possess the gift of Salvation, may those walls fall down flat in Jesus name. Every wall, every barrier standing between your breakthrough in all areas of your life must come down in Jesus mighty name.

Every plant that you have not planted in and around your body, the body of believers, Father Lord, let it be uprooted in Jesus name.

Then I thought about what I was saying and realized that, while men slept, the enemy came in and sowed tares Matthew 13:24-30. Tares of disharmony, hatred, greed, pride, anger, jealousy, envy, distrust, suspicion, confusion, and all sort of evil, so much so that in order to “protect ourselves” we think, that is, maintain the status quo, we build walls to take charge, to be in control, thereby relegating the Holy Spirit to the back bench of our life.  We go ahead many times, ignore and sideline the Will of the Father many a time.

Every tare, every error, lies – deception of the enemy, sown into my life,  family,  local assembly, denomination and the entire Church of the living God, be uprooted in Jesus name. Holy Spirit have your way, take the rein of my life, our life, family, Church, move like never before in Jesus name. Let thy kingdom come Oh Lord!

Yielded life

There are so many tares in your life and mine if we want to be honest about it. There is stuff that we would rather do without that is holding on, weighing down, hindering, limiting our highest self in living and breathing Christ. Many are destined to be an evangelist, pastors, missionary, God’s battle ax,  but are unable to reach even their own family for Christ this moment. Why so? Why? While we were unaware, thinking we had everything under control, reined in, the enemy planted trees, shrubs, and the likes to distract us and ruin our testimony.

Will you go to the Lord in prayer today and ask Jesus to step in and touch every area of your life? Ask for forgiveness! Forgiveness of thinking you can hold the rein and be led by the Holy Spirit.

Lord Jesus forgive me and my friends for every form of unrighteousness in our thoughts, words, and actions, in what we have done and those we have failed to do.  Please, Lord, we welcome you into our hearts, our lives, have your way in us. Take the rein Father, and lead us to do that which is of your great pleasure we pray in Jesus mighty name. Thank you, Lord, for answers for we know you have heard our sincere cry for help. Be magnified Oh Lord.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Take My Life And Let It Be!

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the ultimate sacrifice you rendered on my behalf. You forgave all my sin, removed them so far from me. Thank you for a new lease of life. Everything I am and will be is yours, Lord. I give myself to you Lord, today and forever!

 

Friends, ain’t you glad Jesus Christ came? Where would you be without His love finding you and taking hold of you when He did? Why not thank Him and rededicate your life to Jesus today?

Maybe you don’t know Christ yet and would love to this moment. Great! Ask Jesus to forgive you your sins, ask Him to come into your heart, welcoming Him as your Lord and Savior. Ask Jesus to help you not to go back to those sins, believe in your heart that Jesus heard you and as you have asked Him, He will indeed help you.

Rejoice and be glad! You are welcome in the beloved for no one that comes unto the Lord will He cast away – John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.36………37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

the lamb of GodThe Story Behind The Lamb of God.

Numbers 21:5-9 They spoke against God and against Moses, and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” Then the Lord sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against the Lord and against you. Pray that the Lord will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.

John 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.

All problem is associated with sin. There is a link between sin and fruitless effort, bondage and all sort of ills. Yet the Lamb of God made provision for us by His blood. Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Read John 5:2-14, Luke 5:2-14

Psalms 37:35-38 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree, 36 but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found. 37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. 38 But all sinners will be destroyed; there will be no future for the wicked.

Jeremiah 17:11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end, they will prove to be fools.

We have been exempted from sin and its consequence by the blood of the Lamb. Only if we confess and forsake all sin that easily befalls us. We must forsake sin and everything that is contrary to the will of God as contained in the holy scriptures. Accepting Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior making us joint-heirs with Him bestowing righteousness upon us. Psalms 37:39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lordhe is their stronghold in time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them because they take refuge in him.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Behold The Lamb Of God. RCCG Convention 2017

Except: Just concluded RCCG Convention 2017, held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Behold The Lamb of God as taught by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God International on Friday, June 9th.

Anchor Text: John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

John the Baptist saw the Lord Jesus and saw the fulfillment of his purpose on earth, he saw the fulfillment of the promises made by the God of Israel, generations before him.

What then does the Lord want you and I to see and receive this season?

  1. Christ Jesus wants you and I to behold His stripes and claim our healing. 1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds, you have been healed.” Friends, our healing was settled over 2000 years ago, so, therefore, whatever is ailing us has been conquered. We just need to claim our healing and order the foreigner out of our body, emotions, life and all. Read Act 3:1-8, 9:33-39
  2. We are to behold the blood of the Lamb and claim our deliverance. Leviticus 17:11 says that “life of the flesh is in the blood”  For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. We were purchased by the precious blood of the Lamb of God – Jesus Christ, who takes away our sin and the consequence of it, He nailed it to the cross so you and I can live a life devoid of oppression, torment and so on. Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins.  We are made alive by the blood to live a victorious life. Whatever wants to keep us down from walking in victory in all area of our life is encroaching where it does not belong. Revelation 12:11 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. Plead the blood of Jesus against every and anything encroaching on your life and destiny!
  3. We are to behold His sweat and claim our success. As a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, the curse came into being. Genesis 3:17 To Adam, he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil, you will eat food from it all the days of your life. The Lamb of God, however, saved us from the curse, by His suffering and agony in prayer and ultimately His death. Luke 22:44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
  4. Behold the Lamb and you will never be alone, lonely or forsaken. Christ suffered all that for you and me.  Psalms 121:5 The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; Matthew 26:56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled.”Then all the disciples deserted him and fled. Read the whole of Matthew, special attention to 47-49, 69-75. Whatever level of betrayal, loneliness, and aloneness you are experiencing, note that Christ suffered it all for you and I so we would not suffer it again. He said in Hebrew 13:5 that He, Christ Jesus will never leave nor forsake us. What a comfort!
  5. Behold His resurrection and claim a new beginning. What is your story? What is the state of things in your life? There is provision for a change, a new beginning in Christ Jesus. Matthew 28: 1-6, 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. The Lamb rose from the dead to give us life and life abundantly. Therefore, the dead issues of your life can resurrect today if you have faith in the Lamb of God that take away the sin of the world. Read Mark 5
  6. Behold the Ascension and claim all His promises. John 16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. Read Act 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 2 Corinthians 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him, the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
  7. Behold the Lamb and claim permanent victory without a fight. It was love that took Christ Jesus to the cross. Romans 8: 5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires, but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 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. Read Joshua 7:1-12. 1 Samuel 17:45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

 

 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Light Shining In Darkness!

The odd one like Mordecai refusing to bow down to Haman! Unlike Esau, holding unto your birthright – your glory. A star shinning in dark places, an inconvenience to evil perpetrators, a target of the wicked one.


Fear not the Lord says, I have overcome the world! He who has the key of David is able! He keeps alive and no one can kill, lift up and none can pull down, He is able to keep you from falling. He will not leave you to the will of your enemies. Selah!

Yoruba says “ti aba n ja, bi ka ku ko”

The bible says “I will give lives for your life”

As many as have gathered together against you shall fall for your sake.
As many hands that wants to cover your glory shall wither in Jesus Christ mighty name. For no one can cover the glory of the sun or stop the moon from rising!

As many as wants to push you down to sheol will go down to sheol in your place. For it is written, he who digs a pit shall fall into it. He who rolls a stone shall have it rolled over them. As many as does not want your voice to be heard where it matters will be silenced.

As many ears that does not want to hear your voice receive deafness this moment in Jesus name.

Who has apoken and it comes to pass when the Lord has not spoken?

As many as has and is pronouncing evil against you and yours shall receive on thier heads in 100 fold what they have spoken against you. For who can curse him who the Lord has blessed!

The Lord has spoken who can reverse it? The Lord has called who can but answer?

May the power of the Most High God, the power that raised Christ from the dead, manifest in your life to destroy every works of satan.
May you receive help from above.

May the hands that is not of mortals lift you up. May you receive help today.

May every mouth that have laughed at you come and rejoice with you.

May it be known to all that the Lord is your strenght and salvation, your protector and shield, your fortress and covering, your high tower and safety from the storm in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
