Caution Against Error!

advocate1Luke 11:33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 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.”


2 Peter 1: 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 3:17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

1 Corinthians 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!



King Saul Thought!!! Just A Thought!!

1 Samuel 18:Saul was very angry; this refrain displeased him greatly. “They have credited David with tens of thousands,” he thought, “but me with only thousands. What more can he get but the kingdom?” And from that time on Saul kept a close eye on David.

King Saul thought!!!! It was this seemingly insignificant ailment that became inimical to his destiny and that of his generation unborn. We must endeavor to watch our thoughts friends. We must not entertain evil in our hearts. For someone like me and many of you reading this, thoughts, deep thinking is like breathing, we think deeply about everything. We however, have to learn, by the help of the Holy Spirit to recognize those thoughts that is detrimental to our well being spiritually, emotionally and in all aspect.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Envy-vs-JealousyEnvy, jealousy, fornication, adultery and all kinds of evil start from our thoughts, triggered by our senses, what we hear, see, touch, smell and taste. King Saul had no reason whatsoever to be envious or jealous of David. David was just a boy who killed just one giant, though a mighty one, yet King Saul could have taken it as a good thing, like, the Lord has raised up for me an helper, instead of been threatened. I wonder why a whole King could have felt the way Saul did? I mean, David was an inconsequential lad, from the poorest of the poorest, cause Eliab asked David who he put those few sheep with in the wilderness – 1 Samuel 17:28

Friends, just been you, developing yourself, doing what is needful, minding what has been committed into your hands, managing your lot as much as you can may bring unwarranted attack from places least expected. Those you expect to encourage you may end up as your greatest discouragement. I mean, when your teacher, professor ask you to drop out of school and threatens you, what greater discouragement? Remain hopeful though and trust God!

In an episode of the Highway To Heaven Series I saw not too long ago, about two wannabes boxers, one of them belong to a gang called Satan’s Helper’s or something of such. The other young man is a home boy been raised by his granddad. This young man put all his mind to training, putting himself in a place of readiness, while this other guy, the leader of the Satan’s cult was busy gallivanting round the town, and terrorizing the people. Yet, he wants to win, and what other way does he employ than to threaten this home boy that if he fights, then his granddad will be killed.

The Satan’s Helper’s went ahead and kidnapped granddad. This young man who has prepared all this while was dejected, he stayed in the ring taking the punches, knowing if he so much as raise his hands, his granddad will be killed or his legs broken. He was not aware that an angel was in their midst orchestrating and making sure he gets what he deserves. The Masked Rider and the towns people were rallied up to save the granddad. Just in the nick of time, in the last round, here comes the granddad into the arena. Curious? See it for yourself!

Friends, do yourself a favor, be watchful of your thoughts. Be sensitive in your spirit and make sure you bring every impure thoughts into the light of God’s word and ask for forgiveness. Every evil action taken start from our thought. Let us endeavor to win all battles in our minds and heart. Let love rule!!!!!

Proverbs 4:Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


His Reward! What Shall It Be?

Hello! Yes, you! What have you done with what you have been entrusted with? Oh yes? Don’t you know you have received much and much is expected of you? Do not take the grace of God for granted. This is the year of His presence for the Lord is making His mighty presence descend upon His people this season like no other. What is lost and damaged shall be restored. The Holy Spirit is poured from on high to empower you and I for greater works this season. Issues that have defied logic are been solved in His presence.

4151b01c-25e8-4131-b57d-f906c4251fac.pngHowever, to those whom much have been given much is expected this season. Your elevated position, wealth, sight, gifting, talent, skills, yes, is it benefiting God’s kingdom? Or would you rather hinder, oppress, offend, criticize and malign that which is and should be employed to bring in souls to the Kingdom? Oh, you thought? Well, that is not acceptable!

The standard of the Lord is different my friend. What the Lord terms thriving is way beyond our understanding! What kind of difference are you making? Is it building up my people in spirit, unity, truth, are the hearts of all been transformed around you? Are you shinning as light in the dark? Have you forgotten why I picked you and cleaned you up for the purpose of you shinning, on the pathway of righteousness? An example of the Lords goodness, love, kindness and mercy! Don’t you dare forget so soon! The Lord is coming with His winnowing fork! That which is done shall be tested!

Luke 13:Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ “‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’”

This is that year of the Lords visitation! What are you gonna do? Continue been distracted, sidetracked, oppose, oppress, and insist on having your way? I hope you will not allow anything to stand in the way of the reward heaven is bringing to you this season.

Proverb 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Lord God Almighty, thank you for your loving kindness towards us. We are grateful for the many opportunities you give us to amend our ways. Help us Holy Spirit, quicken us, stir us up to do that which is of the Lords great pleasure in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Deceived? Don’t Be!!!

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Jesus Christ came to reconcile the world to His Father! He, God became flesh and dwelt among us, healing, delivering, restoring, transforming and saving lives, yet He was said to be possessed by Beelzebul, the prince of demons. Matthew 12: 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul,the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” 

What is the nay sayers saying, what have they said about you that is causing you grief my friend? The religious, the ignorant will always explain away what they do not know or understand. Ego will not allow them to ask for understanding and insight from God. Today you might be said to be cursed, an Achan in the camp – Joshua 7:20, possessed by demons and all sort. Do not fret for they said the same thing about Jesus Christ. Often, it is the possessed that will first point an accusing finger at you because they know you are not in their camp. A true child of God who by discernment sees one possessed by demons will pray and take authority over that demon. You will pray in the Holy Spirit and make the demons uncomfortable as Jesus always does when He was here for greater works than His He said we will do. John 14:12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Leonardo-da-Vinci-the-greatest-deception-men-suffer-is-from-89623.pngMatthew 12:25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

31 And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

35 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. 36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Let every man examine himself, see if you are still in the faith, ask God to forgive, deliver, and cleanse you. Take authority over every contrary spirit to the Holy Spirit of God hanging around your life that wants to keep you in perpetual error, render it powerless in Jesus name. Ask for an infilling of the Holy Spirit afresh, stay in the word, repair the altar of prayer, praise and worship, seek the face of the Lord with all your heart. You shall not be deceived Friends.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

My Heart Is Set On High!

a-pure-heart-19-728Hear this Satan, listen and take note!

You demons sowing seeds of destruction

Back off In Jesus name!

I plead the blood of Jesus against you

Satan and all demons I overcome you

By the blood of Jesus Christ

Shed on Calvary’s tree for me

I have been purchase by the blood of Jesus

My mind is not a dumping ground

For dirt, garbage, and waste

Gossip, envy, and lustful thoughts

It is not meant to be a breeding ground

For pest, maggot, and rottenness

Jealousy, anger, and wickedness

My mind is the mind of Christ

Filled with faith in Christ saving grace by His blood

Endowed with the wisdom of heaven

Made pure by the Holy Spirit

Enlightened and empowered

To sift through the deception of sin

To hold unto eternal life in Christ Jesus

To seek the Kingdom of God on earth

To glorify God always in my mind

Filled with love for God, myself and humankind

Mind constantly renewed by God’s Holy Spirit

For the glory of Christ Jesus, the King Eternal

To whom be all glory, honor and praise

Time without end! Amen!

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

1 Corinthians 2:16 “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Philippians 4:Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthymeditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
