Herod!!! Repent!

Brothers and sisters!!! My religious family and friends!!! Christians!!! Born again tongue talking fire brand!!! How often have we supported evil in the guise of upholding a creed? How many souls, precious to Christ have we handed over to Satan? We count the 99 sheep in house while Christ Jesus is looking for that one lost sheep! You know that lone ranger? The one lost sheep, blind and can’t find the way home? Yes! That is the one Christ is looking for!!!

When we neglect to stand up for truth, fairness, justice and love, we are giving room to the enemy to steal, kill and destroy like King Herod did with James in Act 12:1-3 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

Oh! How it pleased the Jews, the deacons and deaconesses, Pastors, Prophets, Bishops, General Overseers, bench warmers, lay men and women, you and I that, that trouble maker of a man or woman, shouting “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life. No one comes to the Father except by Him – John 14:6” has been seized and killed.

What a nuisance, loud mouthed, shouting the name of that carpenter whenever we are going to the synagogue for worship and sacrifice! What peace we have now they  must have said to each other!

What peace indeed!! Friends, when you see evil perpetrated in your presence and sit passively doing nothing you are in support and will answer for it on judgement day unless you repent today.

God is about to do a new thing! You have all heard and read about it, but are your prepared? Are your garment washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus?

God is about to do a new thing! Herod is about to be put down for the Word of God to spread like never before. Power is changing hands! There is a shift in the realm of the spirit but are we ready Pastor, Bishop, Apostle, brothers, sisters, lay men and women alike? Am I ready? How about you?

Psalms 19: 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

State of Our World

The state of our society is so appalling. These boys probably are from religious homes – Christian and Muslim. What an irony?. They are the sort that grows up to be husbands, fathers, politicians, bosses, lecturers, bus conductors, “Alfas”, “Pastors” etc that molest women, myopic in thier understanding of what doing unto others what you want done to you – good morals and mannerism is all about.

Our society needs overhauling! We need spiritual enlightenment, we need practicality of what it means to be good – not hurting another in any way!

Justice for the Obalende Sexually Assaulted Girls

 www.change org
Please sign the petition!!!!

Few years from now, these young girls will be wives, mothers etc burdened by these experiences. Scarred for life at such a tender age! Those raped may never get out of it with damaged idea of thier worth. Their self esteem damaged by these hooligans! And may end up as wives to such as these young men!

There are so many women, married, single, divorced and inbetween with scarred heart, girls trapped in women, crying out for healing and a change to how the girl child is been treated in our world.

Which way forward brethren?

We as parent, grandparent, uncles and aunties guardians, teachers, Pastors and Alfaa – Muslim Cleric should teach our wards respect.

Respecting one another and treating each other how we want to be treated. We must begin to be an example, living transparent and authentic moral lives before our wards. These generation are smart and sees through any double standard we try to project.

We must go back to the basics now! And for those of us in diaspora saying only in Naija can such happen. Look closely!! It is happening in our campuses, high school parties etc. Young men drugging and forcing themselves unto incapacitated girls.

The wicked is really using this act “”sex”” beautiful as intended by God to enslave uncultured souls.

Sound the alarm and may all ears hear! The world is decaying! Only faith in Christ, living by faith and witnessing to others about Jesus Christ can stop the inevitable total and spiral decadence!

Jesus still saves! He loves you! Be born again!!

Repent! Repent! Repent!

Blessed And Highly Favored One!

I am blessed and highly favored. My blessings are way beyond been quantified in monetary terms. Yet, I am one of the richest people on this planet. I am blessed to have been chosen before the foundations of the earth was laid as a force of love and joy. I am very fortunate to come from the linage of royalty, astute and wealthy earthly being, successful by the standard of their time, yet humble. My greatest blessing is the knowledge of my heavenly heritage when my Savior, Jesus Christ sought me out, beckoning me to His kingdom as a choice possession, purchased at a precious price of His blood shed on Calvary’s Tree.

securedLook at me, just take a good look friends and see how blessed I am to have found faith so precious and true. Where will I be this moment without Christ grace and love freely given to me by faith?  What would have happened to me in the Lion’s den, the stormy seas and rough places?

Christ Jesus, His love, grace and presence makes a lot of difference in my life. I am who I am by His grace, a changed being, transformed and energized to live a fulfilling life pleasing He, who saved me all the way, with boldness, courage and faith that come what may, I will always be victorious, triumphing over every obstacle.

To be grateful and live for Christ is the least I can give to my savior this moment. Gratefully I praise God for saving me, working in me by His Holy Spirit to will and to act in order to fulfill His good pleasure concerning me.

Thank you Lord Jesus. I am so very grateful. All that I need and desire this season, I bring before you and ask according to your will that all these also I shall gratefully thank you for soon. That you will showcase your love, grace and power in my life and destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Oppression Within & Without!

Exodus 1:6 Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died, but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them.Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.”11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh.12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brickand mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly.

The Israelite, chosen of God to be His had a tumultuous time after the death of Joseph. The Egyptian forgot the good that God did through the hands of Joseph to preserve them during famine and also to make them great and a reference point in the world – for it was only in Egypt that grain could be found during the famine.

Israel was oppressed on every side because the hand of God was mighty upon them. The taskmaster was ruthless with their very life. Who then is the taskmaster over your case, your life my friend? What is that thing that has an idea of your potential – cause it can only have an idea, only God has the full picture of your potential.

What is it that is threatened by what you can do, become or accomplish and has come to oppress and discourage you? Are the Egyptians within or without you?

Your mental state, capacity – ability to conceive great ideas that are so scary you break out in sweat – Fear robs you of realizing your full potential!!  Could it be the love of the flesh, lust of the eyes, inordinate affection, and all its attending issues? Fornication, adultery, covetousness, pride, lies, manipulation and much more comes to make sure you do not realize your full potential – these are seeds of evil sown in your mind that if left to grow like cancer destroys the vessel. Living without integrity makes you unreliable and how can you really touch another positively for the kingdom? Do not compromise your body, mind and soul!!! Sinning against your body keeps the Holy Spirit far from you, the Spirit of Truth leaves and what is left of you is lies, sickness and the likes that hinders the manifestation of the Lord’s deposit in your earthen vessels. Resist It!

Most often the Egyptians are without. Those are the factors outside of yourself working hard to steal, kill and destroy the potentials within you. The array of obstacles in form of human relation and its attending issues. Your relationship – family, parental, spousal, friends, though with the best intentions may actually be working against the realization of your true potential.

Josephs brothers and dad opposed him. Your family may have seen something different about you that you are not even aware of, and may have perceived it as something to be resisted. Parent sometimes work against the glow of their children to protect them so to say, whereas, they are oppressing the shine embedded in their being. If Manoah and his wife in Judges 13 had not been privileged by the angel of God to be instructed about the long awaited and expected son to be named Samson, they would have oppressed the greatness out of him. The forces within Samson after much unheeded warning cut short his potential – terminated his life – Judges 16.

You may have been fortunate to be married also to someone who feels threatened by the treasure they see in you, even when you were ignorant of it, for it was the oppression of the children of Israel that worked for them in terms of numbers and strength- Exodus 1:12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites. 

Sometimes it is people in positions of authority around you, the people you value their opinion, role models and the likes – your friends, boss, leaders, mentors etc that somehow feel threatened by your potential and vows to quench the fire within you. An example is a young man I know with a wonderful idea that will benefit his entire industry. He went to his supposed mentor with this burning idea that he had and was rebuffed about nine years ago he said and has since abandoned the idea. I asked him when he shared his experience with me few years ago, what you had in mind then, has anyone in your industry taken it up? He said no! I said to him, take it up and run with it, maybe God want it to be you that will pioneer this – be a revolutionary, changing the dynamics with far reaching results for the better I guess.

I should follow up with him to see how far gone he is with that idea someday.You know what baffles me about this man’s case was that he seem not to believe in himself and the source of his idea. Had he courage and belief in his own capability and the source of his idea, he probably by now would be a face synonymous with a phenomenal I guess! He wanted affirmation and validation from those that did not value him or maybe saw him as a threat to their position or relevance in the industry – rather he got rebuttal and was maligned.

Friends, we all have to constantly examine ourselves to see if we are still in the way, forsaking all known and unknown sin and errors, and then we can wage war against the enemy without in prayers so God in His infinite mercy may send us a Moses – God will pick on something in us, a gift, an idea, something He already preserved within us for a time like this – to deliver us from the oppression within and without.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Wasteland? Barren land? Backside of the desert?

A wasteland? A barren land? Backside of the desert? Is that what you think? Is that where you are at? Are you sure? Really!!!! Could it be your carnal mind perspective? Okay, it’s your unbelieving heart perspective! Is that better?

Well, heavens perspective is that you are at a place where your spirit is thriving! You are at a place where you can download from heavens freeway. You are at a place where you can hear the inaudible. You are at a place where you can see the invincible. You are at a place where God’s power and presence is  made manifest in you. You are at a place where your five loaves of bread and two fishes are feeding thousands – Mark 6:30-44

a-woman-of-faith

Will you open your eyes and see!!! Your presence makes the wicked uncomfortable. Can’t you see? Your joy in the midst of storms is revealing the peace of God and the heart of the deceiver. You are having impact far and wide. Your seed offering is growing right where you are! You must employ all, you must be poured out! Exodus 4:21 The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go”.

Don’t you dare hold back! But, but enough of your excuses!!!. Aaron spoke for Moses! I am working this out for you, equipping you daily.  Absolutely! Oh yes!

Do not be afraid, but be strong and courageous for I am with you! I will never leave nor forsake you.  2 Chronicles 32:“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

You are seated and there is so much commotion. Imagine when you stand in your full stature in the capability of the Most High God to wage war against the hypocrisy of religion and the ills amongst my people!!! You are made for a time like this, remember Moses my servant, he had to go through the desert to be matured, Joseph had to go through the wilderness of unfairness from his brothers, slavery, wrong accusations, imprisonment in order to be able to take charge of the abundance of my provisions and protect my heritage.

godJust know that everything you have experienced, are experiencing and will experience was, is, and will work for your good, preparing you for the purpose for which you were created. You needed to be strong dear, for you were too weak, too sentimental, doubtful, intolerant, temperamental and simple. You had to be toughen up, you have to be refined to be among the chosen few.

I am your strength and light, your great reward, your righteousness, your refiner, your glory and beauty. I am working in you to will and to act in order for my great pleasure to be fulfilled in you- Philippians 2:13! Hold nothing back my child! You must be poured out, so be bold knowing I am with you! Fear not! You are blessed and highly favored! Stay focused, I will help you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

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!
