Deeds And Rewards!

Psalm 2:1-6 Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. 5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”
Friends, some wicked and stubborn enemies of your soul, in my dailect – ogun aleni ma deyin, who has been pursuing you relentlessly will “meet with their Waterloo” this season in Christ Jesus Mighty Name. They’ve been at it for so long and are very confident that the Lord does not see, so he cannot do anything about it. Does he, who made the eyes not see? Or he who created the ears, not hear – Psalms 94:9?

2-thessalonian-1When king David took Uriah’s wife, laid with her, proceeded to set Uriah up, he meant to deceive him, the wickedness of man! The King suddenly developed fondness towards Uriah. He sent for him from the war front and ultimately set him up, sent him to die at the war front, all this while the Lord looked on- 2 Samuel 11. God in His mercy however, sent a prophet in 2 Samuel 12, Uriah’s life had already been cut short, his dreams died, and the king repented. We shall not die from the scheming of the wicked in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

King Ahab also was fixated on taking Naboth piece of land. It was the only property recorded for Naboth and it was his inheritance. Ahab, been the King of Israel had access to any land, choicest land in Israel, but Naboth’s inheritance. Well, with the aid of Jezebel and some “Knockheads” Naboth was killed and his inheritance stolen 1 kings 21:1-3. The Lord sent prophet Elijah to give a verdict which was fulfilled in an instance in 1 Kings 22:37-38. The Lord does see!!!!!!

What is all this about you might be thinking? You see friends, the enemy of our soul is Satan himself, however he makes use of some who have allowed themselves to be used of the devil. Some who have sold their souls as agent of the devil to trouble your life and mine. Those in covenant league with the devil that do not want your joy and mine to last. Those that have purposed in their heart that until they kill you, your joy, peace and progress like in Acts 23: 12 and 13 they will not eat. The Lord laughs at them.

Friends, the Lord our ” God is just ; He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and I. And he will give us relief 2 Thessalonians 1:6. As Joshua pronounced a curse in Joshua 6:26 and it was fulfilled in 1 kings 16:34. I declare in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, who by His mercy saved you and I friends. The wall of Jericho- the wall of reproach, poverty, sickness, sorrow, shame, lack, bondage, oppression etc that the Lord has broken down, whoever attempt to pull it up, build it up around you and I and all that concerns us shall do so at the cost of their first born child, and everything good they have, and at the cost of their own lives. For it is written, I will give lives for your lives – Isaiah 43:4. Whoever sit in the dark projecting evil towards the Lord’s anointed shall reap hundred folds speedily in the name of Jesus Christ.

By the power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead, whoever connive with the wicked to do you and I, our children, spouses, family harm, shall be swallowed up like Korah, Dathan and Abiram in Numbers 16 for they have rebelled against the Lord our God who’s we are.

Father, you are not for the death of a sinner but for the forgiveness of sin. We ask Lord, that the same mercy and grace you have shown to us be released upon the agents working against your plan and purpose for our lives. Let your love convict them of their sin and bring about repentance and a turning away from the path of destruction in Jesus mighty name Amen.

If they however are adamant as in Act of the Apostles 23, Lord the judgement due unto such, please measure it out in hundred folds upon them speedily in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Lord we thank you for your mercy and goodness towards us. We love and honor you Lord. Be magnified in our lives Lord. Let your kingdom come and your will be done in Christ Jesus Mighty Name.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

His Power Within!

Luke 5:17 …..And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick. Jesus was merely teaching! He was speaking to Pharisees and teachers of the Law! These were well learned people! Teachers of the Law – they knew everything about the letter, they knew the religion but had a closed heart to the Spirit that gives life. Yet, the power of the Lord was manifested in Christ Jesus to heal the sick among them and others!!! God does work in all situation to will and to act in other to bring about His great pleasure in every circumstance.

img_20161209_053544Friends, you and I carry the presence of God, the power of the Most High God in our body. Are you a believer walking in the spirit in obedience to the Word of God? You are a power house! The power that raised Christ is at work in you! Absolutely!! You are a solution bearer!

Luke 16:19 “…and all the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from Him and healing them all.” Have you ever felt virtue leave you? Jesus felt it with the woman with the issue of blood in Matthew 9:18-22. You see friends, virtue leaves us to touch others in many ways in form of kindness shown, love given to another in our understanding, empathy, compassion, sacrifice of our time, resources and all for others benefit.

Some months ago in Church, I sat next to a brother. Something happened and I knew virtue left my body. I was surprised, even though I was not a willing participant, yet God worked in me to will and to act in order to fulfill his great pleasure which was to touch that brother through my hands for healing and restoration. I knew it, but could not ask the brother for embarrassment sake. You’ll wonder how could I be sure, right? I knew by the help of the Holy Spirit that lives within me. He will witness to you too if you cultivate His presence.

Friends, be conscious of the presence of God upon your life. You carry the presence and power of the Most High God. This is why the scriptures says, ” For we are the temple of the Most High God in 2 Corinthians 6:16. It also stated in 1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in your midst. Verse 17 “……. For God’s temple is sacred and you together are that temple”. Therefore, your body must and will not be defiled by sickness, diseases and infirmities. Your body and mine friends must not be defiled by the sin of sexual immoralities and the likes. Take care of it!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Obedience ! Key To Breakthroughs !

Obedience is better than sacrifice! When the Lord gives you an instruction friends, do yourself a favor, take action. Do what you have been asked to do regardless if it made sense or not. Your logic can never reason out the workings of The Spirit!!

God told David he will hear the sound of matching on a Mulberry tree 2 Samuel 5:24. Strange it sounds , impossible it seems, yet David listened for the sound, he heard, took action and the result was victory over the Philistines.

In Luke 5:4 When he had finished speaking , he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon a seasoned fisherman knows way too much about this trade. He has fished all night when it was most favourable to bring in a catch and caught nothing. Here is this carpenter, what does he know about fishing? 

Let down your net my foot you and I have said many times to the Lord by our action. That can’t be Lord! You don’t understand what I have been through!! The prognosis/ diagnosis is pretty bad Lord!  I have gone too far, how can can it be? How can I carry now at my age?He/She hurt me so bad, how can I forgive them, especially as they haven’t even apologized ! Oh! he’s/she’s not even sorry what they said, what they did! Forgive the Lord said!!! Let down the nets for a catch the Lord said!!

Do you get it friends? Has the Lord spoken to you about an issue you’ve been struggling with and you are explaining like the Man by the pool in Bethesda John 5:1-8. The Lord is saying to you today ” Pick up your mat and walk.” Listen and obey!! 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Working In You! A Great Pleasure!!!!

One thing I have realized about prayer is that, it is a tool of communicating with Our Father in heaven. There are various means of communication, from man to man – we talk, look, write, gesture, use signs, and even through body language. This is natural for every being. To our Father in heaven however, we talk,we sing, and communicate with our heart also. I would say mostly with our heart!!!!!

Prayer then are initiated most often by us when we are in need, to some it is a religion, to others it is a way of life – a relationship.

You cannot be in a relationship without communicating. Sometimes it is easy to talk to God about everything and other times it is difficult because we get overwhelm by events around us, the tumult of our hearts and more. This is when the Holy Spirit comes in to help us. Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

The initiator most often is us, as a being seeking the face of the Almighty we have erroneously believed. However, I have found out that God initiate this communication. How do I know that? What do I mean you might ask? Remember that in Genesis 3:9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you? This was after Eve and Adam ate the fruit of the tree. In the cool of the day the Lord sought them out but they hid. How often have you and I hidden from the Lord? How often we hide our flaws instead of asking for His help to make it right or remove it. How often?

Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to act for His good pleasure. Friends, God always desirous of good for His creation has plan for us in point Z and then comes to point a b c d …. stirring you and I up by His Holy Spirit to pray, sing, worship and so on so that He can bring to past that which He has already prepared in advance.

Ephesians 2:10 says it clearly ” For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

You then my friend, you are blessed and highly favored for the Lord Himself came down to visit you. He is working in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good pleasure in you.

Those times you did not feel like praying and you just suddenly found yourself praying and things begin to happen, you just know that there is God in it. See it is not because you made up your mind to do so, neither is it your will power. He works in you to will and to do!!! He is working it out according to His good pleasure. He will glorify Himself in you trust me. Why not put a praise on it. Sing like never before for God is always listening.

God is calling out to you right now friends, please don’t hide from Him for He loves you-Genesis 3:9!!!! You are a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. You have been like a big bull caught in the bush on a plain field, everyone can see and hear,none offered help, but Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Holy One of Israel is loosening the thicket, you are been set free for grazing in the abundance of God’s provision. Your horn are been set free, your bellowing heard in the land, to the uttermost and the strangers shall hear and take flight.

Arise then you favored one! Arise in the capability of the power of Him who raised Christ from the dead! Arise and shine, for your light has come!

Shalom! Shalom!

Fabulously A Woman!!!

I am a woman, a womb – man

I am fearfully and wonderfully made

I am the apple of God’s eye

I am so precious that it took God, made man to win my soul

I am the fragrance of Gods love and kindness to all along my path

You cannot win my heart, or respect by coarseness

That is so not attractive at all, almost disgusting!!!

I am formed from the rib of a man so I can complete him

I am a multiplier of love, peace, joy, grace, kindness and much more

Be honest, gentle and tender, respecting me as a being

And you win my heart, loyalty, and respect

I am unabashed and honest about where I’ve been

I am faithful and resilient with hope for goodness today and better tomorrow

My heart is big and tender to hold peace, yet firm enough to stand against evil

For I am not my own, I belong to Him who loved me and gave Himself for me

Jesus Christ of Nazareth, to whom be glory, honor, and adoration

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!

Even Faith!!!!!

Oh that my faith will grow that I may have wings to fly! Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is an absolute for every believer to reach their highest potential, receive from the Lord and fulfill God given destiny.

hebrew-11In Matthew 8:2A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy”. Jesus is willing and able to make us clean. He wants so much to beautify everyone of His brethren. The question then is, are you willing to be clean? The man with Leprosy desired to be make clean and asked for it! Are you desirous of been made whole? Ask Jesus for it!

Simple faith in the capability of The Word to reach and transform our lives is paramount to receiving from the Lord. The Centurion man exhibited great faith by believing that just the word spoken by Christ is able to reach his sick servant at home – Matthew 8:8. What then is that situation that has been, and not palatable in our lives? Have faith today in The Word, speak the Word in Jesus name and the situation must change. Be unwavering in your faith, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Believe that all things are possible with Jesus Christ in your camp. The Word works my friends, it works wonders every time applied with faith in line with the will of God. Jesus drove out the evil spirits with a word and healed all the sick. He will do same for you today. Call upon Jesus!

One other thing you must realize friends is that Jesus Christ, God made flesh went through storms. He got into a boat and a furious storm came up on the lake, presumably to swallow up destiny – Matthew 8:24. Jesus experienced storm, how much more you and I friends, be assured though that no storm can overcome us as long as we have Jesus in our boat.

Do you have Jesus in your boat? Are you born again? Have you invited and accepted Christ into your heart? Do you trust Jesus with your life, the life He gave you? Your faith and trust in Christ will enable you to ride through every and any storm triumphantly. There is power in the Word of God!!!!! Jesus spoke to the wind and waves and it was completely calm. He will speak to your and my situation today! Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Decoding Impossibility!!!

A tamed 500 pounds Gorilla ridden like a horse into town is unheard of and dangerous in itself. However, if the rider notices a change in the tamed Gorilla, common sense would warrant him/her to return back to a safe zone- the environment where the Gorilla was tamed right.

decoding-tamingIn taming any animal, the animal is conditioned by reward for an expected action in a controlled environment over time since its usually done from birth. Riding a full grown Gorilla then to an uncontrolled environment with pointers strewed over reminding the Gorilla of how it was tamed is probably not a good ideal.

This is what happened in this story. A gorilla was rode on all four into town. Everyone was in awe, it was a spectacle. Everything was in order and the rider was having fun until, she/he sees what the Gorilla sees. Every iron bar is a reminder of captivity, a chain lock by a school ground reminds of restraint. The rider consciously guided this 500 pound mass away from the play ground. In an alley way, there was a barred container jolting memories long dormant but the rider saw this also and gently guided this mass away from wrecking havoc should instinct take over that moment.

decoding-impossibilityWhen safely out of this populated area, just in the border of the controlled environment the scientist came and brought out a chain to restrain so they can give a dose of medic to the Gorilla, bringing out a chain lock, like that used to secure a bike. The rider warns the scientist seeing the look on the face of the Gorilla. It was almost like it got an ha ha moment.

This 500 pound mass just acquired a form of intelligence that cannot be tamed. It stood up and sat like human with the human trying to inject serum to kill this new sight just received so close to an uncontrolled environment. Can you imagine what will happen if this mass breaks loose. The residence and schools unguarded? What is about to take place leaves no room for guess work?

Nobody has ever tamed a Gorilla in the true sense for they are intelligent and powerful, however in a stroke of chance, if you find any tamed, I guess threading with caution will be a good idea right?

What does this mean I pondered!! What does this spectacle mean? What possible out come can be envisioned? Is this even ever possible?  Please comment!!!!!! Your response will help in deciphering this message!!!!

Change Required! Now!!!!

It is time to revolutionize the way of thinking in this present dispensation. Time for a paradigm shift!! Change is required, change is needed, change is here, change is welcome!!!! Change is here to stay! Embrace change! Change is good!!!!

We must sift through the recess of our minds and uproot those seeds planted long ago that is not bringing forth desirable fruits. We must do some rearranging, cultivate and consciously plant fresh, new and viable seeds to sustain this next leap on the journey of life.

embracing-changeAs an individual we all need this as we have been conditioned by many factors. As a body we do need change to get result – the “unchurched” to be “Churched” Our world demands it if we are going to reach it for the Kingdom of our Savior Jesus Christ! We need change to remain relevant!

Let the Holy Spirit revolutionize The Church one soul after another Oh Lord! We need revival in our midst. Set our soul on fire Lord. Help your people!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
