Repossession your Possession RiDs Tuesday, 28th May 2013

Repossession your Possession

2 Kings 8: 1-6
Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had restored to life, "Go away with your family and stay for a while wherever you can, because the Lord has decreed a famine in the land that will last seven years." The woman proceeded to do as the man of God said. She and her family went away and stayed in the land of the Philistines seven years.

At the end of the seven years she came back from the land of the Philistines and went to appeal to the king for her house and land. The king was talking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, and had said, "Tell me about all the great things Elisha has done." Just as Gehazi was telling the king how Elisha had restored the dead to life, the woman whose son Elisha had brought back to life came to appeal to the king for her house and land.

Gehazi said, "This is the woman, my lord the king, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life."The king asked the woman about it, and she told him.
Then he assigned an official to her case and said to him, "Give back everything that belonged to her, including all the income from her land from the day she left the country until now."

Beloved, welcome to another precious time of divine aura and virtue as we learn together at the master's feet. We serve a living and mighty God. I am also glad to know that the word of my King can never be ignored. Where ever the word of the King is, there is Power. This season, the honor and glory due to you as the child of the most high will be accorded you in Jesus Name. The Lord who made Joseph a lord to the Egyptian and Daniel to be lord over all the Presidents in Babylon will also cause you to excel beyond your equals.

In the passage above, we came across a classical and typical story of dispossession and restoration. There are several way men can be dispossessed of their belongings; in this story, it happens to be famine. A harsh and unpleasant situation. As in other famines in the scripture, famine are often accompanied with losses, frustration, regression, destructions and sometimes death. However, whether famine or flourish, a believer needs to know exactly the mind of God before making the next move.

The natural thing is to avoid famine. However in Gen 26: 1-13, God specifically commanded Isaac to dwell and sow in the land of famine. He obeyed and reaped a great harvest in the same year.
Conversely in Ruth 1,  Elimelech  migrated his famine from Bethlehem Judah (the house of bread) to Moab on account of a fierce famine and lost all his children and also died in a strange land - a probably indication that going to Moab was not God's perfect will. For it was said in Ruth 1: 6 that God had visited Israel at Bethlehem Judah with bread (despite the famine).

In today's passage, there are 7 things to note to repossess your possession.

  1. The woman relocated for a specific period of time on account of the word of Elisha - the prophet of the Lord. Note that Elisha (a type of the Lord) had said for a while. The Rhema is to understand the Lord's mandate. I am not sure of any passage where God instructed his people to relocate permanently on account of famine. Beloved, before your next move or relocation, be very clear of the mandate of the Lord.
  2. The woman obeyed and returned after seven years. Naomi, the wife of Elimelech returned after 10 years. Even Israel sojourned in  Egypt for 400 years was specified  and to accomplish a definite objective. Although the Prophet did not specify duration of the famine, it was the prerogative of the Shunnamite women to pay attention to happenings in her land. Thank God, she returned after 7 years to reclaim her land, she probably wouldn't have been able if she delayed it some years further. My prayer for you - you will not miss your season of restoration  in Jesus Name.
  3. By the time she returned, her land and property had been taken up. This has a lot of spiritual implication. Whatever is not attended to is taken up by another. In the realm of the spirit, we cannot be careless in certain areas of our lives. If for instances, a man do not take charge of the well being of his children spiritually, in his very eyes, they can become vagabond. Matt 13: 25 says that while  men slept, the enemy planted tares among the good seeds. This is a strategy that the enemy has been using successfully to steal, frustrate and delay the believer's blessings. Understanding the implication of spiritual possession will allow you to take serious every aspect of your life. I pray for you, in every area that you have been careless and the enemy had taken over your rightful possession, the Lord will open your eyes in Jesus Name.
  4. Whenever you become aware of a dispossession, you have the greater King to appeal to. In Luke 18:1-4, even the unrighteousness Judge attended to the widow because she wearied him; how much more the Lord - ever faithful and true? I don't know what rightly belong to you but has been taken away - your joy, peace, marriage, prosperity, health - today and this season, muster some strength, encourage yourself in the Lord and appeal to the king. He will surely come to your aid.
  5. The Lord sent a witness ahead of the woman to make her restoration easy. I perceived she must have been rehearsing her plea. As a matter of fact, she approached the palace with crying to attract the King's attention. How do I know? In vs 5, it was while the king was having a conversation with Gehazi that the woman was heard appealing (pleading in a loud and convincing manner) for her land. May I announce to you, the Lord has sent a witness ahead of you. The holy spirit, which always maketh intercession for you.
  6. The king thereafter appointed an officer to do 2 things - restore her property and the proceed thereof from the time she had left. This is loaded. I pray for you, whatever is yours before now and taken away, shall be restored, with all the proceeds thereof in Jesus Name. A friend of mine has just been delivered of triplets after waiting for several years - instead of one, she got three. I decree, your restoration plus the proceed thereof cometh in Jesus Name.
  7. Because the king commanded, the restoration was perfected. Eccles 8:4 says where the word of the king is, there is power; and who may say to him, what doesn't thou. I decree therefore, every word of the King concerning you shall come to pass. Every spoken word concerning your repossession and restoration, we actualize them now in Jesus Name. We speak to the four winds of the earth, every visible and invisible forces to cooperate with God and actualize the fulfillment of the King's word in your life and situation.

I trust God to bless, keep and lead you in the way to go. Whatever steps you need to take, receive divine guidance now in Jesus Name.

Shalom & Blessings!!!

The Battle Cry- RiDs 27th May 2013


The Battle Cry 2 Chr 14: 8 -15

Asa had an army of three hundred thousand men from Judah, equipped with large shields and with spears, and two hundred and eighty thousand from Benjamin, armed with small shields and with bows. All these were brave fighting men. Zerah the Cushite marched out against them with an army of thousands upon thousands and three hundred chariots, and came as far as Mareshah. Asa went out to meet him, and they took up battle positions in the Valley of Zephathah near Mareshah. Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, "Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against you."

Then, the Lord struck down the Cushites before Asa and Judah. The Cushites fled, and Asa and his army pursued them as far as Gerar. Such a great number of Cushites fell that they could not recover; they were crushed before the Lord and his forces. The men of Judah carried off a large amount of plunder. They destroyed all the villages around Gerar, for the terror of the Lord had fallen on them. They looted all these villages, since there was much plunder there. They also attacked the camps of the herders and carried off droves of sheep and goats and camels. Then they returned to Jerusalem.'

Welcome to a new week of victory. On Mondays, we essentially focus on some prayer missiles to start the week. Thanks be to Jesus, for this week, the Lord has guided us to the story of Asa - another of those unfamiliar stories of scriptures. As we pray today, the one, who is always for us, (Yahweh), will hear our Battle Cries and respond with His heavenly warriors to settle our matters, Amen. Let's focus quickly on the Rhema before we pray!

  1. The battle between Asa & Zerah is typical of all battles we fight daily - between light and darkness. That's why I want to implore you to let the Lord brood over your soul as you meditatively read this.
  2. Asa had a fortified army of 580,000 warriors but Zerah came with a thousand upon thousand and three hundred chariots (1,000,000 man army with more sophisticated chariots). In other words, the enemy you are contending with is wicked and can muster and often do muster twice the forces you can physically put together. The Rhema here therefore are these;
    - never rely on physical weapons to fight spiritual battles. The enemy of your soul is the old man - who has been around for a while.
    - no matter the strength of your physical armour (intellectual, qualifications, competitive advantage, beauty, public ratings and recognition), you still need to know that the weapons of your warfare must never be physical or carnal but mighty through Christ that strengthens you. Eph 6:12
    - physically, the enemy (the problem, obstacles, challenges) as long as its from the enemy will be formidable - most times double the effort you are putting in. However, as a christian, you must know that 'they that be with us and much more than they that be with them' 2 Kings 6: 15-16
  3. And Asa called unto the Lord. Do you know that the Lord cannot act until you call upon Him? Someone, something must trigger the move of God. Is He aware of the swarming troubles? Oh yes He is. There are several stories to support this. Jesus was in the boat with the disciples and fast asleep while they battle the raging storm. And they finally woke him up with these words 'don't you care that we perish' (Matt 8: 25)? He only got up, rebuke the wind and the sea, there was peace. Beloved, He is aware, He knows, but you got to do what you have to do - cry out to Him; hence, the title, battle cry.
  4. Then, in respond to Asa's cry, the Lord struck the Cushites. This morning, the Lord of Host will strike. The forces of heaven will fight for you. The reason why you haven't being victories is because you have not employed the forces of heaven. When the Lord strikes, the enemy must flee and be defeated. Remember, when the Lord struck for the lepers (2 Kings7:3-9) a whole battalion of the enemy fled. Even now, the Lord of Host is striking on someone's behalf and your victory shall be permanent in Jesus Name.
  5. This victory is coming with mighty restoration. (Joel 2:25-26).You are about to plunder the usurper of your destiny. You are not only going to be restored, you will also return safely, back to Jerusalem - we will finish well, get to our heavenly Jerusalem in Jesus Name.

Prayer Missiles - Father, in the Name of Jesus;

  1. Let every weapon fashion against me, my destiny, my household, and my spiritual inheritance, Father Lord, cause them to fail and be frustrated in Jesus Name.
  2. Put to shame the forces of the enemy gathering against me. Raise your mighty standard like a flood and cause them to fail in their evil agenda. Isa 59: 19
  3. Thou will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you. Father Lord, no matter how formidable the enemy may be, keep me from fear. Be my confidence and my joy in Jesus Name, Amen.
  4. Until Elisha prayed for his young man, he was perplexed and fearful against the mighty host, Oh Lord, you are my Elisha, and you also prayed for Peter, hold my hands, pray for me. Let me see your heavenly host already prepared to fight for me and keep my eyes always on you.
  5. Some trust in chariots and some in horses - Oh Lord, my trust is in you. Arise to help me this week in Jesus Name. (Psalm 20: 7)
  6. too much, put the enemy to shame. (Psalm 61:2).
  7. You spoke to the wind and the sea, and there was peace. Concerning my situation this week, speak Lord, please speak peace. Calm every raging storm. Every waging tongues, tied them up in Jesus Name.
  8. Asa got a mighty restoration; he could no longer be hindered. On account of this victory, the path of success is open. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth (Psalm 25:10a). Father, keep me in your path. Let my recovery be total in Jesus Name.
  9. Asa and his army got back to Jerusalem safely. Oh Lord, my focus at the end of everything is the heavenly Jerusalem - help me to berth safely in my heavenly Jerusalem in Jesus Name.
  10. Give Him thanks and wrap up with praying in the spirit. The Lord is with you, as a mighty man of war. Shalom & Blessings!!! From the Desk of:

STAND FIRM IN PATIENCE - CONFESS, SPEAK, DECLARE UNTIL YOUR CHANGE COMES

We are at a point in time when the tested virtue called PATIENCE is fast
becoming a forgotten quality and everything should and must happen
instantaneous.

The blessed tolerance, longsuffering, perseverance, endurance, etc.
seems to have become anathema and totally disappeared from our modern
day acceptable behavior and virtue.

2 Pet 1: 5 - 8 'And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your
faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and
to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness
brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these
things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be
barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 21: 19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

Heb 10: 36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the
will of God, ye might receive the promise.

Eccl 7: 8 - 9 Better [is] the end of a thing than the beginning thereof:
[and] the patient in spirit [is] better than the proud in spirit.

Isa 30: 15 For thus said the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In
returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence
shall be your strength: and you would not.

Isa 28: 10 - For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Beloved, I sincerely believe that you have a goodly heritage and your
heaven-ordained change cometh in due Season. I am also a firm believer
in the fact that our God is ALL POWERFUL & MERCIFUL such that changing
times and season is the least of His worries.

Having said that however, we cannot rule out the fact that He is the
sovereign God and He makes all things beautiful in His Time. Here is
what Peter said about God and His promises. 2 Peter 3:9b. The Lord is
not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is
longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that
all should come to repentance. The is NEVER slack concerning His
promises towards YOU.

Luke 21: 19 says that in my patience, I can possess everything (my
soul). Many because of lack of discretion and self - control had lost
out of very wonderful opportunities in life. I am sure you have examples
of those who messed up on account of their carelessness. Herein is the
crux of this message. How do you wait upon God and yet don't mess up
your opportunity through lack of discretion and wisdom?

Thinking about the story of the Fig tree as recorded in Mark 11: 12 -
14, I began to feel the concern of God for His people, notably you and
I. Every time I had looked at this scripture, I was always focusing on
the curse of Jesus. Today, I will like you to have a different perspective.

The bible says that the Fig tree had green leaves but no figs. How do I
deal with season of delay? Majority have been discouraged and lost out
completely.

Mark 11:12–14
12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he
might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing
but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and
said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his
disciples heard it.

I definitely know what that's like. We are sometimes like the fig tree.
Green from afar off but no fruit.

The reason why Jesus cursed the fig tree was because the fig tree spoke
first. Vs 14 says and Jesus answered and said unto it. You don't answer
someone who hasn't said anything to you. Jesus responded to the spirit
of hunger and barrenness speaking against Him from the tree. The Fig was
green outwardly but inwardly, there was barrenness contending and
speaking against Jesus. What are the negative vibes speaking against
your destiny?

Blessed with qualifications but no job, blessed with a great marriage
but no kids; studying hard but only failure, looking great in church but
sorrow at home. Fig leaves but no figs.

Beloveth, Instead of loosing hope and compromising your salvation, is it
not better to confront the spirit issuing negative decrees into your
life? Is not ideal that you confront the spirit behind the mountains
that you see? You are not to loose confidence in God, rather, you are to
confront the yokes of delay and failure by faith with patience in God.

Paul prayed for a door of utterance. Words are doors! Declare that your
words are filled with divine wisdom and open great doors of opportunity
to you today. Declare that your words as doors will open up the fountain
of the heavens and the earth to fast track your joy and blessings.

Declare in faith continuously but wait patiently on God for a
performance. There shall be a performance if you wait not.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

be food in my house, and prove me now with this, saith the LORD of
hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a
blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Beloved, Now is your time to:
Activate that fruitfulness
Command forth that accelerated promotion
Release the overflowing joy
Trigger the recovery process now

The voice of the Lord said, let there be light and there was light. Gen
1: 3. Align yourself to the voice of the Lord. To him that is joined to
all the living, there is Hope (Eccl 9: 4)

Prayer Missiles for the week - Focus is Total Restoration

Job 42: 10 - And he Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends; also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Joel 2: 25 - And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

Isa 54; 16 - 17a Behold, I created the smith that blows the coals in the fire and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper: and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement, thou shall condemn....

For a moment, let's empathise with Job and imagine him at his lowest estate before he was restored? Who would have thought Job would have full and overflowing restoration? Beloved, the LORD who restored Job will surprise you In Jesus mighty Name, Amen.

This shall be the focus of our prayers for the week;

Father in the Name of Jesus:

1. Father, restore unto me your joy, peace and presence because the joy of the Lord is my strength.

2. Father Lord, this is the month of answered prayers and wholesome restoration, by your divine power for signs, wonders and turn around, arise, turn around every situation in my favour according to your will.

3. Oh Lord, Job's forgiveness and prayers for his friends trigger his divine turn around. Before the end of Feb 2013, whatever I must do to trigger my restoration and accelerated progress and promotion, Lord guide and help me to do this week.

4. I command and declare, all my glory, virtue, favour, blessings that were hitherto held back, wherever you are, in this season of restoration, I command; be liberated, locate me and be restored to me in Jesus Name.

5a. I command in Jesus Name, every weapon of delay, oppression, failure and sorrow deployed against me, I command you to fail. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper.

5b. Because the weapons of the wicked must not fall upon the righteous, oh ye weapons of warfare of the enemy, set against me or will be sent against me and my household, I command you to fail. Fail, become blunt, receive the holy ghost fire, go back to sender in Jesus mighty Name, Amen.

6. Oh Lord, you comforted Job again, the wasted years were forgotten because of your restoration power. In Jesus Name, let the same restoration power, restore joy, honour, favour, and all blessings that the enemy had stolen and scattered. Let their be restoration.

7. Oh Lord, break and destroy the yoke of the enemy that has been working against my generation. Every generational yokes, I terminated them Now because I am now joined to the Lord of host. Eccl 9: 4.

8. Psalm 30:5 - Lord, I declare an end to weeping, marital troubles, yoke of loneliness, infirmities and all vices, I command an end of night and fast forward the new dawn of celebration in Jesus mighty Name. My restoration cometh.

Beloved, pray these prayers with faith. Hitherto have you asked nothing in my Name(John 16:24) ask and receive NOW in Jesus Name. Be expectant of testimonies. Prov 23: 18.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

CHOICES AND SEEKING RIGHT - Part 2

Yesterday, I ended by saying I see God constantly pointing you in the direction to GO. However, the choice is yours! Selah....think deeply upon this.

Do you know that 'God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him' quote by Warren Wiersbe. This leads us to the subject of seeking God or better still, seeking to please God.

A lad will always trust his Daddy and if Daddy says 'jump', he jumps because Daddy said so and because he has absolute trust that Daddy won't let him fall. Can we infer therefore that our inability to trust God in our decision making may be attributed to not knowing Him? The 3 Hebrew children opted for the fiery burning furnace and Daniel, the Lion's den because they knew their God. (Daniel 3: 16 - 18, 6: 16 - 18.

Beloved, who do you seek? You seek what or who you know. Romans 10: 13 'Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. They shall be heard. They will be recognised. They will be accepted and then, they shall be saved. Matt 7: 8 says for certainly, everyone who keeps on asking receives and he who keeps seeking finds...

Do you know that God is not far from you. He's even closer to you than the clothes on you. I hear someone said I can't see Him. How come I have been going through all these without respite? I assure you He sees, He knows, He feels and above all He cares. Wait a moment, a look at the pattern of events around you - you will surely find out that God has always been present for you.

Maybe you need to move closer to Him. When James 4: 8 said 'Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you; it underscores my and your need for God much more than His need for Man. Imagine the one whose throne is in the Heavens and the earth, his footstool taking just one step to draw nigh to you?

We also need to understand that necessity is placed upon us as soldier to please Him. If you choose to join an organization, then, you are bound by its rules and regulations. I also know that compliance with organizational terms has not been hard for many us. So, why do we find it hard to comply with the Kingdom's requirements?

2 Tim 2; 4 GNT - A soldier on active duty wants to please his commanding officer and so does not get mixed up in the affairs of civilian life.

AMP - No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of (civilian) life; his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him.

Beloved, choosing right is about fulfilling purpose. That's what is keeping you awake at night. That's the compelling motivation for living. If we strive to fulfil purpose on earth which is temporal, should we not pay more diligence to fulfilling purpose for eternity which is everlasting?

Finally, beloved brethen, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phil 4: 8. Give attention and time to the truth of the choices of the past and their consequences today and let's rely and depend on God absolutely for our today's choices...

God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him' quote by Warren Wiersbe.

The Best is yet to Come! Wait on the Lord for the Best Now and Always.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

Rhema in Due Season (RiDs) - Thursday 21st February 2013

ABOUT CHOICES AND SEEKING RIGHT - Part 1

Life is about choices! The choices we make amongst several alternatives. Man from time immemorial has been making choices. From the garden of Eden where the very Firstlady decided to listen to the talking serpent up till Armageddon, choices will continue to be an integral aspect of human existence.

Furthermore, where you are today is a product of the choices you make yesterday and your tomorrow will be a reflection of today's choices. The outcomes of the choices we make are often three;

1. Reformation;
2. Conformation
3. Deformation

Joel 3;14 reflects the frustration of mankind when it comes to choice making. Hear the prophet "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. Maybe there is a decision that you are expected to make but you have remained in the valley of procrastination and indecision - the prophet is alerting you today - the Day of the Lord is near in the Valley of Decision. And once the LORD appears, it will be too late to make further choices. The parable of the virgins in Matt 25: 1 - 13 is a case in reference.

Gen 13: 10, 11 - And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. Then Lot choose for 'himself' all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east.

I will like to point your attention to three (3) rhema from the above trusting that the Parakletos, the spirit of truth and revelation will reinforce it to you.

1. Though the plain of Jordan was green and well watered, it wasn't the choice of God for Lot. Not all that glitters is gold. The grass is often greener on the other side because you are watching from afar. When you move closer, you will see patches here and there. Also, every green garden do not just happened, someone somewhere invested time and energy into making it green.

2. Lot compared the plain of Jordan to the lush green land of Zoar and Egypt. More often than not, when it comes to decision making - we are always benchmarking with what was known or seen before. Thus, a lady looking for a life partner is looking for a guy like her Dad or former lover, etc. It would have made a bigger difference if the choices we make are based on future expectations. YES! Future expectation because you see the POTENTIALS and have the foresights to key in now for greater glory and honour.

3. Lot thought his choice was for himself; how wrong? His choices and subsequently choices by his two daughter resulted in Lot fathering his daughter's children. The choices we make: our actions or inactions today will not only impact us but also generations after US. We are today remembering Abraham because he CHOOSED to take a risk on God's word. When it comes to choice making, we need to TRUST in Him that was yesterday, is NOW and Knows the end of all things. Remember, Isa 46: 10 says our God declares the END from the beginning.

I'm sure if Lot had the premonition of the future consequences of his decision, he wouldn't have chosen the plain of Jordan.

Here underscores the importance of seeking right and seeking the Lord.

Beloved, are you about making a decision; you don't know how to go about it and/or you are under pressure to choose; I counsel you to wait. I suggest you consider placing your options prayerfully before Him who knows the way and knows all things.

Prov 3; 5 - 6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (or wisdom); in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct (make smooth or straight) your paths.

I see God constantly pointing you in the direction to GO. However, the choice is yours! Selah....think deeply upon this.

We continue tomorrow.


Shalom and Blessings!!!

THE SUPERIOR AND ULTIMATE WISDOM

WISDOM makes the difference and sound wisdom makes ultimate difference. And this WISDOM is available for YOU!!!

I would like to glean life from the book of Proverbs. Prov 2: 6 - 8. 'For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. NKJV.

Do you need wisdom for anything? Are you at the verge of making a decision and you are wondering what to do and how to go about it? Ask the Lord - He gives WISDOM. verse 6 pointed out clearly that God is 100% committed to your success in life. That the one who knows eternity is ever available and just behind you and I, whispering Wisdom for Success. (Isa 30: 21). There is a need to seek for the wisdom that he has already provided. I admonish you to draw nearer to God in the place of prayers and study of the Word.

Furthermore, in verse 7 we can see that 'He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;' Prov 2: 7. Wow, what a wonderful revelation before God's people this morning. God, the maker of the Heavens and the earth; the one who knows the end from the beginning; the one who has the final say; even your maker did not only provide access to wisdom daily, He also has a reservoir of sound wisdom for the upright. I'm beginning to understand afresh why our God was called 'The El Shaddai One - which means the El Shaddai One.


In Gen 22; 14, we understood through Abraham that 'God will always provide'. The revelation of God to His Saints this morning is that 'He is not just going to provide' rather 'He has stores full and bursting with extra ordinary wisdom' - please note that it is sound wisdom, wisdom that makes a man to be outstanding. Why we are often bothered with what shall we eat, drink and wear and excessively worry about physical provisions, God is saying 'I have my stores full of winning formula - wisdom' Wisdom is the fastest route to wisdom. Through Wisdom, Joseph and Daniel were elevated from the lowest levels to enviable positions. Beloved, think about it. This is what God has stored up for you. Wisdom! Great stuff I see God revealing and depositing right into you and I this morning.


As we bring this study to a close, it's pertinent to point out that the storing process is for the upright. Let's be careful in dismissing this salient point. He did not even say 'stores up for the believers'. The qualification to having stores full of wisdom is uprightness before God. We can therefore extend this understanding by saying that 'anytime we stand before God in any other manner - in sin & disobedience, in compromise; anytime we are not in right standing with God, the stores of Wisdom may get and actually become depleted. The store don't get replenished. I now understand why Ahitophel's wisdom suddenly became foolishness because he shifted status from uprightness to compromise. (Feel free to read up about Ahitophel).

Oh, is it possible for a man to always walk in upright status with God - I hear you whisper! Yes, it's possible. Man only gets carried away by the flesh and fleshy desires when he/she is unguarded. The fulcrum of this message to the saints therefore is 'to guard your heart'. Do everything to preserve your relationship with God. We stand to lose much more than what we gain when we derail from the wholesome path. It's a war zone I know but its also a battle we have been assured of victory. John 10;10.

As we continue in this week wherein God has assured us, THERE SHALL BE NO LOSS, I commend you and yours into God's everlasting arms of favour. Meditate on these words. Do the needful. I will endeavour to do the same. Till I come your way tomorrow again, stay blessed and rapturable.

Beloved, it's a wonderful day the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Go ahead and rejoice in the fullness of the wisdom from above.

Shalom and Blessings!

THIS SEASON, THERE SHALL BE NO LOSS

Acts 13: 20 - 24a
And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away. But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. And now I exhort you to be of good cheer; FOR THERE SHALL BE NO LOSS of any man's life among you, but of the ship. For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am and whom I serve, saying, fear not, Paul...

I declare and decree in Jesus mighty name, for you and your household, there shall be no loss. You will not sorrow over anyone neither will you lose anything precious in Jesus Name. Amen!

The Blood of Jesus that speaks better things will avail for me and my loved ones.

THE MESSAGE AND THE MESSENGER

Someone once lamented on his sick bed 'God gave me a message and a horse; I have killed the horse and I am unable to deliver the message. How sad and pathetic. This was true life account of a missionary who overworked himself to the point of exhaustion and died unfulfilled knowing fully well there were several unfinished agenda before him. He was unprepared and very sad to meet his maker with a mandate of 'I failed'.

How many of us are conscious of this important truth. Beloved, whether you like it or not, you are a messenger with a MESSAGE. Just as Martin Luther King had a call to preach true liberation and Mandela's message was to undo the evil of apartheid, you and I also have specific messages for our generation. How do I know that?

Jer 1; 5 God said to Jeremiah 'Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the Nations.

James 5: 17a Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are.

Dear reader, just like Elijah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Esther, Mary and several others who impacted the world and finished well, you also have a mandate to run with and can only deliver it through your available vehicle of ministry. Do not be deceived, Elias was a man of like passion. The fact that he performed several miracles did not suddenly make him a spirit on earth. Elisha in 2 Kings 13 actually died from sickness. I know sickness can arise from many sources but the fact that Elisha was sick and later died also underscores the value of appropriate rest. As a messenger, you are first human and your human body must be in top shape to deliver maximum dividend to your Commissioner, in this instance, God your maker. Herein lies the message of the day.

Firstly, you need to have clarity of the message, because more often than not, the means of delivery has to align to the message. A Music Ministers needs to pay attention to specific things - for instance diet, especially must avoid cold drinks while a footballer must devote time and energy to train and stay healthy. A Potter needs patience and impressive creativity while a farmer needs specific knowledge and resources. The question this morning sir and ma - what is your message?

Do not be deceived, you are not without a mandate. Moses was encouraged to appoint captains over 10, 50, 100, etc. Are you a 'Captain over 10, your assignment is different from a captain over 1,000 and your delivery methods will certainly be different. It is therefore important that you have clarity for the mandate.

Several had made a ship wreck of their message because they never paid attention to the intricacies of their mandate.

Prov 22; 29 'seeth thou a man diligent in his business, he shall stand before Kings and not ordinary men. Beloved, you have a King's business. That's the focus of this message. Find out the master business entrusted to you. Also find out what connotes diligence in that specific business and the Lord will crown your effort with good success.

I leave you with the words of Jesus in John 14; 18 wherein he said 'I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you. Whether you see Him or not, He is forever present to help you - a sure and solid foundation and supporter in time of need. Please, look up to Him at this season. He will not fail you.

Have a blessed, fruitful and restful weekend.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

EXPLORE WISDOM FOR LIVING

Wisdom is the application of knowledge and its essential for existence upon the earth. It is a deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgments and actions in keeping with this understanding. It can also be seen as discernment, or insight.

A closer study of the books of Proverbs however shows that the Holy Spirit is also the Spirit of Wisdom. Consequently, we can say that the Holy Spirit (who is WISDOM personified) gives, inspires, transmits and propels wisdom for all situations.

It appears to me that all that a man may be struggling for in life is available in wisdom. Since this is true, is not easier for us to pursue wisdom? There is so much stress around already, we need to explore the opportunities and relieves already available for US.

For instance, if you seek direction in life, seek it within Wisdom. Ecclesiastics 10: 10 if the iron is blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put more strength; but wisdom is profitable to direct
The absence of godly wisdom is travails and sorrow. Ecclesiastics 2: 26 – For God gives to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner, he gives travail.

Did I hear you say but I truly long for wisdom, I always seek for God's direction and guidance in all I do – then, I encourage you to keep at it because He will always give wise counsel and guidance. Proverb 2: 6 – For the Lord gives wisdom; out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding

We are in the marketplace – business, commerce, government, administration, private or public. Wisdom is needed in every strata of life and sound wisdom is require for positive impact. Do you know that the extent of wisdom you demonstrate, manifest and radiates is a measure of wisdom you have accessed? Prov 1: 20 – Wisdom cries aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the market. I encourage to wait, and listen...

One of the principal responsibilities of Wisdom is defence (Ecclesiastes 7: 12). I have seen wisdom operates as a tool for defence indeed. Let me share 3 stories with you.

Armed robbers were robbing a Block of 6 flats. When one of them knocked at the door of a Pastor friend who stays on the last floor (3rd floor), he opened up and saw the strange looking guy. The robber told him "I'm looking for Daddy". Though he was the head of the home, his response by wisdom was 'Daddy is not here, check him downstairs'. And the armed robber turned and went to rob the flats downstairs. It was only after the operation was over that it clicked in him that the guy was an armed robber.
Beloved, wisdom will always give you the appropriate word to silence all your mockers and adversary, known and unknown.

In 1 Samuel 21: 11 – 15, David suddenly found himself in the enemy's territory. He was captured and was taken to the palace of the king. Vs 13 'And David changed his behaviour before them, and feigned madness, scrabbled on the floor and allow spittle fall from his mouth…..and the king threw him out as a madman. This can only be instant inspiration through Wisdom. The Lord that delivered David in such a crucial moment of Life is able to show up for you. Wisdom is profitable to direct, inspire and instruct you for all situation.

I know of a young Christian who sought God's guidance for an examination; God led him to read and solve verbatim just one past question, the same past question came in the examination and he got A+. I reiterate again and again, the same wisdom is available for you.

There is only one person who will not have access to wisdom Proverb 24: 7 – Wisdom is too high for a fool; he opens not his mouth in the gate. Proverbs 14: 33 – Wisdom rests in the mind and heart of him who has understanding….

Do you need wisdom for any situation in life whatsoever, let me assure you, the required wisdom is already available – you just need to access it. James 1: 5. Beloved, lets learn to seek from the God of all Wisdom.

I decree and declare, specific wisdom for your specific situation, and for all your endeavours, receive in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

ESSENTIALS FOR BREAKTHROUGH

Isaiah 55: 11 - So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in thing wherein I sent it.

There are three essential truths for your breakthrough as far as the God of Heaven and earth is concerned. These can be gleaned from the Word above.

1. You need a specific Word from the Lord. Receive it now. The Heavens over you are opened. Receive your specific word in due season.

2. The Word from God carries the Power, authority and potency of God. It cannot and will neither fail nor be hindered.

3. Positive result is always guaranteed. God's word will always prosper, flourish, succeed and achieve result. Beloved, if God has said it, then you can take it to the market. Always on point and sure to thrive.

I'm sure you need a breakthrough. Are their some situations confronting you as mountain of impossibility? I want you to shew the Words of Isa 55; 8 - 11 again and again. God's word never fails and it won't start failing with you. I declare that as you shew, it will find fulfillment in your life.

Maybe you are wondering what else must you do to receive the expected breakthrough. How can I trigger the potency and fervency of this WORD to work for me.

Just to say quickly that the truth will always supercedes fact. Fact is that you have a medical condition, but the truth is that By His Stripes you are Healed. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. John 8: 32

Beloved, I have seen God's Word come alive literally. I have seen God's word turned around hopelessness and performed miracles. It is the same word referred to in Isa 55: 11.

What must I do to activate God's Word.

In Sarah instances, she did nothing. As a matter of fact, she 'mocked' the Word yet God had mercy. However in other instances, the Woman with the issue of blood exercised her faith. Jairus similarly came to Jesus. Whatever you need to do, to trigger your breakthrough, be inspired to do such in Jesus mighty Name.

A guide to what you can do:

1. Get a sure Word from the Lord. Wait on God for a relevant word. Search the scripture. Ponder on his word. Prov 32: 8.

2. Shew the Word at all times. Speak it, compose it in songs; dream it, express it, live it and believe it. If God has said it, IT IS Possible.

3. Believe it and walk in faith. Blessed is she that believeth, because there shall be a performance. NIV says it will be accomplished. Luke 1. 45

This morning, I stand upon the living word of God and I speak breakthrough to your spirit.

To every one going down the valley, I command a divine turn around.

Your healing is perfected.

I speak to that Blood pressure, let there be reversal.

To that child who has been acting funny in the last 2 weeks - I command restoration.

I speak peace to every storm. I destroy every yoke and barrier of impossibilities and delay.

You are already at a brickwall and don't know where to turn - I speak the Word, let there be a way. Receive divine guidance for your next steps.

You are about to make a very crucial and important decision - in your valley of decisions and in the multitude of thoughts - the Lord will show up.

Beloved, like the woman with the issue of blood, reach out and touch Him by faith.

The faithful God never fails.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

Life Lessons from 2013 AFCON

You have listened to stories of great men and women who left their marks on the sand of time. The recent victory of the Nigerian Super Eagles is certainly in this category. It is no longer news that despite all odds, the team triumphed at the end of it all.

From scriptural perspectives, we can derived at least 8 crucial life lessons from the competition. Please come with me and let the Holy Spirit brood on US.

At the beginning of the competition, the bookmakers put their money on Ghana, Cote Doivre and defending champions Zambia. Of these 3, only Ghana got to the Semi final before they were defeated by tiny Burkina Faso - a country that had not won a Nations' Cup finals match outside their country before. Nigeria was regarded as spent horse and was not considered a serious challenger for the trophy.

Lesson 1: The Spiritual ruleth over the physical at all times. Psalm 115; 3 - Our God is in heaven, He does whatever pleases Him. He changes times and seasons, He sets up kings and deposes them. Dan 2; 21, He has established His throne in heaven and His kingdom ruleth over all. Let your Kingdom come; let your will be done over US oh Lord.


Lesson 2: Victory is of the Lord ....Eccl 9: 11. I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not for the swift, nor the battle for the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. The Lord who rules over time and season will hasten your lifting. The Super Eagles had 17 players playing at the AFCON for the first time, yet they excelled. The Lord will fast forward your Seasons of manifestation and outstanding successes.

Lesson 3; If Victories are won on the good wishes of people, the Super Eagles do not deserve to pass the Group stage. However, the Mercy of the Lord supercedes all. His mercy prevails against judgement. James 2; 3. The mercy of God that triumph over judgement will grant you sweet victories over every voice pronouncing judgement, sorrow and evil against you or your household.

Lesson 4; Some Teams - Cape Verde, Ethiopia, Niger Republic, DR Congo and Burkina Faso were not expected to make any impact. Yet all left the 2013 AFCON with significant successes. It doesn't matter what others are saying, if you keep the faith, you will reach your goal and your mockers will be frustrated. Isa 44; 25 - every power speaking lies and evil into your destiny will be frustrated in Jesus Name.

Lesson 5: Hard work is good, but hard work is not enough. The Burkinabe Coach prepared his team for the Final by showing his players three memorable epic matches - Chelsea as EUFA Champions, Greece winning the European Cup and Zambia's victory at 2012 AFCON, yet the team came short in the final. Absolute TRUST and ACKNOWLEDGING God all the way, makes a difference. Prov 3:6 - in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. No doubt, God took charge for the Super Eagles. He will take care of you.

Lesson 6: It pays to keep calm in the midst of adversity. The Nigerian Head Coach was treated shabbily and disrespected by the same persons who should be singing his praises the loudest. Rumours had it that his sack letter and flight ticket were waiting for him before the quarter final match with Cote Doivre. Beloved, Isa 30: 15b - says in quietness and in confidence (in your God) shall your strength be. The Head Coach was professional all the way and God fought for him and crowned his effort with success. The God of Heaven will fight for you and grant you good success in Jesus Name.

Lesson 7; God determines the end from the beginning. Recalling some of the matches, it was as though the officials were mandated to disfavour some of the Teams. The fact that this was a global stage did not deter some officials from poor and very biased officiating. Yet, in the final analysis, the best teams based on their performances got to the final. I decree upon your life and situation (Isa 46; 10) the purpose of the almighty God concerning you and in every situation, it SHALL stand in Jesus Name.

Lesson 8: No matter the situation you are going through, your SUN will still SHINE and your STAR will radiate brighter. The home based Eagles in previous Teams in the past 10 years had no say. There were at best training materials. All that is now history due to the stellar performances of Sunday Mbah and Godfrey Oboabona. Psalm 30; 5; weeping, rejection, denial, delay, etc may endure for the night but Joy, a new lease life cometh in the morning. Redemption cometh at dawn. Your New Dawn is also here in Jesus mighty Name. Amen.

Beloved, there are still more Life Lessons all around us. A pointer to the fact that God is forever faithful. He never forgets. He is forever faithful. I encourage you to hold on a little longer and God will be show forth and proof His mightiness in your situation. It shall be well with you. Amen and Amen and Amen.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

When Men say there is a casting down Job 22; 29

Motivation is literally the ambition, desire to do things; a very crucial element in setting and attaining goals. Do you know you can influence your own levels of motivation irrespective of what others feel, think or say about it?

This is exactly what the Super Eagles did. I'm certain that if a survey had been conducted about Nigerians' expectations of the team before and during the early stages of the recently concluded AFCON, majority; 70:30 would have written off the Team for obvious reasons. Alas, obvious reason does not necessary translate to actual result. When majority did not believe the boys can achieve anything, they struck together as a Team and kept their agenda to themselves. Today, history. As we celebrate with the Super Eagles, and the entire Nation, I prophesy that you are next in line for a big celebration.

Mondays is usually set aside for prayers. So shall we pray. I will be sharing 7 prayer Missiles for you to engage the Lord that answers prayers. In this season, He will manifest and fast track your attainment of your next levels in Jesus mighty Name, Amen. Kindly find time to pray these tonight.

Prayer Missiles:

1. Father Lord, you make all things beautiful in your time - take me into my season of beautiful results and achievements.

2. The Team kept their ambition within themselves. Father Lord, I hide myself and your divine agenda for my lifting in your mighty and everlasting rock. Keep me from failing and stumbling in Jesus Name.

3. Father Lord, you had the final say in the affairs of men. Irrespective of what others are saying, let you will be done concerning my life in Jesus Name.

4. Many things worked against the team but those things failed while the Team excelled. All agenda, visible or invisible, physical or spiritual on a mission to work against my promotion, frustrate them Now in Jesus Name.

5. Father Lord, disappoint all the negativity against me. Empower and catapult me to my next Level in Jesus Name. I decree and declare - I'm motivated by the Spirit of the Lord and I shall not fall nor fail.

6. Father, turn every disappointments of the past to stepping stones to fulfil your agenda for my life. Let all things work together for my good.

7. The rejected stones - home based became the toast of everyone - let my season of lifting begins in Jesus Name.

8. I decree and declare, a divine and positive turn around for me and my household in Jesus mighty Name - spiritually, physically, financially, health wise in Jesus mighty Name.

9. Lord, revive our Nation again - you have began a good work already, please hasten to finish it oh Lord.

10. I appreciate you Lord for answered prayers in Jesus Name.

Healing through Forgiveness

Yesterday, we consider undeniable cry. Today message a continuation. For the Lord to hear your cry, you must be able to hear the cries of others.

To err is human but to forgive is divine. Forgiveness is exercising the personal discretion not to hold someone in your heart. To forgive is to give up resentment or claim to requital for. It is to cease to feel resentment against an offender.

There was the story of woman at the delivery ward of a Church maternity centre who was unable to deliver or bring forth her baby despite the fervent prayers of the Prayer warriors. The Lord later revealed that the delay was due to un forgiveness. Counsellors spoke to her on the danger and implication of un forgiveness. Do you know that it was her husband she had the grudge against? The moment she forgave and release him from her heart, the baby came forth.

From the above, we can deduce that inability to forgive may be attributed to a negative spirit and often may lead to far reaching negative consequences. Beloved, are you harbouring this negative spirit? Please watch it, it can impact and have far reaching effect on you and your loved ones.

Matt 18: 26 the servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me and I will pay thee all.
Vs 27 then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him and forgave him the debt.
Vs 32 then his lord after that he had called him saith unto him, O thou wicked servant. I forgive thee all that debt because thou desiredst me.
Vs 33 shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant?

Are we like this servant who was forgiven much but he was unable to find grace to forgive a fellow servant? Ponder on these things.

Tips to living a life free of offence and full of forgiveness

1. Appreciate the fact that man will always make mistake.

2. To forgive is to demonstrate a superior spirit.

3. Un forgiveness is a yoke and a burden - this is not desirable for you.

4. Christ paid in full for all your offences; you also are commanded to love and forgive.

5. When you forgive, you are demonstrating some of the virtues of Jesus - as He is, so are we in this world.

6. Just like love, forgiveness covers a multitude of offences. Keep on forgiving 4900 daily because this is the Lord's commandment.

I trust you will think deeply upon this and allow peace to reign. Behold what manner of love God has shown to man sending his only begotten son to die for all.

It may just be that the yoke of delay will be broken as you forgive. I command and declare, every manipulation on account of un forgiveness be destroyed and terminated in Jesus name. Receive fresh dew of heaven for a life free of offence and be blessed.

Shalom and Blessings!!!

Undeniable Cry

Hear my cry oh Lord, attend unto my prayers. From the end of the earth, will I cry unto you. And when my heart is overwhelmed, please lead me to the rock, that is higher than high, that is higher than High. Psalm 61: 1 - 2

Desperate situation requires desperate and concerted efforts and actions for the desired change to come. Nothing in life is free. Even salvation is not free. I know you didn't pay a dime for salvation but JESUS paid in FULL.

Similarly, divine intervention is free but there's always a prize to pay - though not financial. For if the prize is financial, the poor will never receive any assistance. I'm glad to say that there is a God in the Heavens who is a friend to the poor and the needy.

Matt 5: 3 - in the beatitudes, the first message from Jesus to the multitudes was 'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. The cries of the poor will always be attended to by God.

Psalm 34: 18 - the Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Luke 18: 1 - 8 relates to us the story of the widow and an earthly judge - please read it. Vs 7 - 8a says 'And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Christ hates cheating and He will always attend to such cries urgently.

Beloved, are you poor in spirit, poor in health, poor financially and poor in companionship? Are you lonely in the midst of multitudes, drained emotionally and low on joy and peace? Is your heart filled with hurts and pains - Jesus is a very present help. Enough of crying to hopeless and helpless men who cannot help themselves. Cry to Jesus. Call upon me in the day of trouble. Psalm 50:15. You can't be going through any of the above situations and be happy. Surely and certainly, you are a candidate for His attention. Do you know He is waiting to Help you if only you will cry?

Beloved, blind Bartimeaus cried, he was not denied. Infact, the king of Kings stopped every other business to attend to Him.

In Acts 7; Stephen had a vision of heaven as he was being stoned to death - he saw Jesus STANDING on the throne. WoW!!! Jesus is ALWAYS empathic towards those who are in need and all is waiting for is your cry. If ONLY and ONLY you will cry, you shall be heard.

Beloved, the comforter is waiting...He will arise, avenge, restore and make your Joy to be FULL.

Shalom and Blessings!!!
