INTRODUCTION

 

Firstly, my deep, sincere and heartfelt gratitude goes to my daddy in the Lord, Rev. Moyo Akin-Ojo, and his fabulous wife, Pastor Ebowo Akin-Ojo, for being a great spiritual light and guidance to me and mine. Much of what I have accomplished is as a result of him! I say thank you, sir!

The genius of Unforced Rhythms of Grace, Volume 1 is that, while it demystifies enigmatic doctrines, astonishing biblical adumbrations and deep prophetic symbolisms, it conveys this Truth in a remarkably simple style which perfectly conforms to the Message of the Christos, as taught by the Apostles, and totally aligns with all that Christ Jesus has done for us in His finished works.

Teaching this profound truth with a prophetic edge, I have endeavored to mirror to the believer his place and stand in this matter; this comes about in such a way that stirs up great water courses of faith, supernatural and penetrative insight into realities as well as spiritual intimacy with the Holy Inspirer and Teacher of this Truth–the Spirit of Truth. It is certainly sure that no reader can ever remain the same after interacting with this book.

The communicative power of this piece is intense. It takes a hold of the reader to indoctrinate him with the new vibes of grace and love that culminates in an instant, automatic and irreversible renewal of the mind and increase in grace for effortless and permanently unending trails of promotions and victories in life and destiny. This mentoring tool keeps the message simple and highly enlightening, and then goes on to instruct and educate the believer in the things pertaining to righteousness–from the simple to the deeper ones.

This book is a three in one book. It is a daily devotional and has been apportioned into three hundred and sixty five days. It is also a resource compendium and has been apportioned into seven sections according to central topics. It is also a book and can be read from cover to cover in a matter of days. This book should be read with an open mind and a heart ready to receive from God. Each bible verse mentioned should be studied carefully. Each confession should be made with the boldness of faith and should be followed by a short (or long, as the Spirit leads you!) session of prayer.

Depend upon this! I assure you, you don’t want to wait another moment until you are much done with a voracious gulp of the entire volume.

Now, stay in this music, muse the lyrics, flow with these rhythms and rise to masterful dominion over the realms of life. Reign effortlessly!

Enjoy!

GOSPEL MESSAGE

UNFORCED RHYTHMS OF GRACE, DAY 1

And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has nowhere to lay His head’ (Matthew 8:20; KJV).

I find this statement to be beautiful. Let me tell you why. In the original Greek text, the word for ‘lay’ in the above scripture is a very unique one. It is ‘KLINO.’ The only other place it was used in reference to Jesus was when He rested His head on the cross; ‘so when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit’ (John 19:30; KJV).

The bible says, ‘and bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.’ The Greek word translated as ‘bowing’ here is ‘*KLINO*’. Beloved, this means that it was only at the Cross that the Son of Man finally found a place to rest His Head. Jesus found His rest in loving us and sacrificing Himself for us.

THOUGHT LINE: because Jesus KLINO on the cross; I have all the best things of this life.

Beloved, He found rest in dying for you and me and in giving us life: the very life of Yahweh which is given to those who believe in Him. Jesus found His rest in absorbing all your sins – past, present, and future – and thus, He gave you and me His divine righteousness! What a divine exchange that happened at the cross of Jesus Christ! (See; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

Friend, your Savior found His true rest while He screamed, ‘My God! My God! Why hast thou forsaken me?’ He found rest in those three hours of darkness on the cross, while He absorbed all your sicknesses, poverty, bondage and negativities. He found absolute rest in dying in our place – the Just for the unjust. And He, through His finished works, has given you to enjoy the best things of life in abundance.

Say this with me: BECAUSE MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST TOOK MY PLACE ON THE CROSS, GOD IS FOR ME TODAY; GOD IS FOR ME TOMORROW; GOD IS FOR ME FOREVER!

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit’ (John 19:30).

The bible says, ‘and bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.’ The word rendered as ‘bowing’ here is the Greek word ‘*KLINO*’. The only other place it is used in reference to Jesus was when Jesus told a potential disciple that, ‘Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head’(Matthew 8:20:KJV). The word ‘lay’ here is the same Greek word KLINO.

Beloved, the King of Glory, before the cross, said He had no place to rest His Head on. He is the word made flesh. Without Him nothing could have been made. He created the universe, including the foxes with their holes and birds with their nests. Nevertheless, for Him, the cross was the only place He found to rest on–KLINO  - for the first time.

THOUGHT LINE: Jesus rested (KLINO) at the Cross to give you the superior and super-abundant Zoe life.

My dear, for Jesus to have KLINO at the cross shows that the reason He did not KLINO before the cross was that He so loved and loves you and me. Thus when He said, ‘the Son of Man has nowhere to lay (KLINO) His head,’ and later we see Him, at the Cross, ‘bowing (KLINO) His head, He gave up His spirit,’ clearly shows us that Jesus was saying to us; ‘I will not rest until I shall have solved the sin, sickness and poverty problem for you on the cross!’ Jesus was saying; ‘my meat is to do my Father’s will.’ And His Abba's will was to give His Son, Jesus - Heaven's best - on the cross, as the sacrifice that takes away the sin of humanity! He was saying; ‘my true rest will be found in the divine exchange!’

Beloved, this divine exchange took place at the cross – He took your place and gave you His own place! He died and gave you Zoe (life). He took the Psuche life (natural life) away and gave them that believed in Him the Zoe life!

This Zoe life is the very life of God! This life is not subject to sickness, death or poverty! This life is superior in quality and super-abundant in quantity! In Christ you have Zoe!

Say this with me: I HAVE ZOE! I HAVE THE LIFE OF GOD IN ME! THUS, I MANIFEST VITALLY THIS SUPERNATURAL AND SUPERIOR LIFE IN MY FINANCES, HEALTH, FAMILY AND ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN JESUSNAME!

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?’(Romans 8:32).

The word ‘freely’ in our opening scripture was translated from the Greek word ‘*Charizomai,*’ which means ‘graciously, grace in action, THUS ACTIVELY GRACE YOU WITH ALL THINGS.’

Jesus was the apple of God’s eye. He was God’s darling Son, His infinite joy and delight.

Yet, God gave Jesus up for you. That’s how much God loves you!

Just think about this: if you knew you could save a dying person by giving up something precious, would you go as far as giving up your only child, whom you dearly love, for that person?

Yet, that was exactly what God did to save you. Jesus, His beloved son, died on the Cross to cleanse you, heal you and justify you- spirit, soul and body! That is how precious you are to God!

THOUGHT LINE: because God did not withhold His Son from dying in your place, you have all things you ever need delivered to you alongside Christ.

Beloved, today, if God withholds your healing after He has already given you Jesus, it would, therefore, mean that your healing is greater or more important than Jesus.

Oh! My friend, He has already given you heaven’s best. And in doing so, He has freely given to you all the best things of life too.

Now is receiving time! Mention the things you believe God for and say: I RECEIVE THEM NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,’ THEN GO AHEAD AND START THANKING ABBA SAYING, ‘ABBA I THANK YOU FOR I HAVE THEM NOW! GLORY!

In this the Love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him’ (1 John 4:9).

Beloved, God so loved and loves you that He gave Heaven’s Best – Jesus – for you! He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus into this world so that you can live through Him!

To Live through Jesus is to live through the consciousness of the Divine Exchange that took place via His cross. He took your place and gave you His own place!

Jesus wore the crown of thorns on His head and gave you a sound mind free from fear, guilt, depression, anxieties and stress.

THOUGHT LINE: living through Jesus is living through the consciousness of the Divine Exchange that took place via His cross; He took your place and gave you His own place!

Jesus’ feet brought Him to places where there were lack, diseases, condemnation and even death. At the cross, those feet were nail-pierced so that you do not need to be in such places yourself. He has brought you to a place where you don’t need to accept and suffer these things in life. He suffered in your place and broke away all bondage of addiction, negative generational trends and patterns, inferiority complex, sinful habits, curses etc. Now, you don’t have to remain bound to those in any way. For, who the Son sets free, is free indeed, never to be a son of bondage again.

Now, Jesus didn’t have to suffer these things and then die. He chose to. Because, He loved you – He spared not even Himself so that you can now have every blessing of health, wholeness and abundant life. Therefore, if you have believed in His death and suffering for you, you are perfectly free vitally and eternally. Hallelujah to the Lamb that was slain.

Say this with me: ABBA THANK YOU, FOR THE DIVINE EXCHANGE AT THE CROSS OF JESUS, AND OF WHICH HAS MADE ME FREE FOREVER! I HAVE ALL THE MONEY I NEED NOW, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

…Behold all things are become new’ (2Corinthians 5:17).

The Bible instructs the new creature (in 2Corinthians 5:17) to behold that all things have been made new. The word ‘behold’ is akin to the Hebrew word ‘Chazah,’ which means, ‘to see with the eyes of a prophet.’

Thus, God is saying to us His kids, ‘see with the eyes of a prophet that you now have Zoe; see with the eyes of the Spirit that you have been made righteousness, and that through the finished works of Christ your sins have been forgiven–past, present and future!’

Dearly beloved, Chazah that you have all the things you will ever need or desire. Chazah that the Psuche man is dead and that you are now the Zoe Man. CHAZAH THAT ALL THINGS HAVE BEEN MADE NEW!

The Psuche life is the old life that was subject to sin, sicknesses, death, failure, negativities, addictions, curses, poverty, natural circumstances and evil. And any man outside of Christ, who has not been made a new creature lives within this psuche-cycle. But the new creature in Christ is out of that cycle once and forever. Everything about him has been made anew, and God says to see it that way – that all things have been made completely new forever.

THOUGHT LINE: by seeing that all things about you have been made new, you see as God sees – with the eyes of the Spirit.

See with the eyes of a prophet that you are not the poor trying to be rich; rather, you are the rich discovering your inheritance. See with the eyes of the Spirit that you are not the sick or weak in need of health, but rather, the healthy and strong in Christ growing every day in Him. Chazah that Christ is your wisdom, sanctification, justification and your wealth! You own the world!

 

Say this with me: I CHAZAH THAT ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW! I CHAZAH THAT A NEW WAVE OF WEALTH AND INCREASE HAS COME TO ME NOW! I CHAZAH THAT I AM GREATLY BLESSED, HIGHLY FAVOURED, AND DEEPLY LOVED BY ABBA!

…If God be for us, who can be against us?’ (Romans 8:31).

Beloved, now that the Almighty God is your loving Father and you are His beloved, what fears can you have -of the future; of sicknesses; or of death?

Beloved, when you have a revelation of how much God Loves you and that He sees you as completely righteous, by the Blood of Jesus Christ all your fears will dissipate. And now that He is always for you, who or what can be against you? What sickness can come against you and successfully bring you down?

So, look away from your circumstances and call out without fear to your Abba who has said to you in His word that all of life’s good things are yours: whether things present or things to come, they are all yours.

THOUGHT LINE: Feeding on His everlasting love for you is the key to receiving vitally all your desires from Him.

The amount of revelation you have about how much God loves you goes a long way to affect how you pray to Him and about what, how you study the Word and how you fellowship with Him. Learn to believe in Abba’s unconditional love for you which He demonstrated by sending Jesus to die in our place. Rest on His love for you and draw absolute confidence for your heart. This would drown all fears you have had about God and life in general.

He loves you and will never condemn you! Feed on His everlasting love for you and receive vitally all your desires from Him.

Say this with me: MY ABBA TRUELY CARES ABOUT ME UNCONDITIONALLY!

…the Sun of Righteousness (shall) arise with healing in His wings…’ (Malachi 4:2).

My friend, at the Cross, Jesus did not just take away your sins, He also gave you His righteousness! A divine exchange took place–your sins for His righteousness. This means that, today, you are as righteous as Christ Himself- not because of your good works, but because of His finished works!

Beloved, the Sun of Righteousness shines daily upon you! He is the One that has made you eternally righteous! Not only that; there is also healing in His wings! If you are sick, receive your healing now in Jesus’ Name!

WE ARE NOT just the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; we are as well the healed of God. There is righteousness, healing, wholeness, fulfillment, prosperity and so much more in the unsearchable riches of God’s grace. Glory!

He gave you health and wholeness! There is prosperity, success, abundance and shalom in His wings! And it’s under His wings that you dwell, and at the same time He lives in you! You are His Headquarters! What an awesome place to be!

Say this with me: THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS SHINES UPON ALL THAT CONCERNS ME DAILY! THUS I AM VITALLY BLESSED MUCH MORE! IN JESUS NAME!

You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace’ (Song of Songs 4:9).

Beloved, Christ called you His brethren (sister and brother) after His resurrection, and the word says we are the Bride of Christ! Now this was what Jesus said concerning you, “You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.”

JESUS HAS loved you with an everlasting love; He would feel no repentance on loving you! You are Abba’s happy thought. He thinks about musically and you are the rejoicing of His heart.

Dearie, Jesus is saying to you that ‘You have stolen my (His) heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.’

Say this with me: JESUS THANK YOU FOR DEEPLY LOVING ME!

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy’ (Jonah 2:8).

Mercy is from the Hebrew word “hesed” and that also means grace. Jesus said the sign He would show the Jews would be the sign of Jonah. Many people in the church do not know Jonah actually died in the belly of the whale and came back to life. It’s this sign of how Jonah died and after three days resurrected (after which that great city Nineveh was saved) that Jesus showed them.

JESUS FULFILLED His words and showed them the sign of Jonah: He died and was raised on the third day, after which the world was saved.

Amazingly, in Jonah 2, he was praying from Sheol/Hades, the land of departed spirits. And God heard Him. And while praying He said, they that observe lying vanities have forsaken their “hesed.” He called death, the belly of the whale, poverty, sickness and negative circumstances lying vanities. He said if you are considering all these lying vanities, you have made light of God’s Mercy and Unmerited Favor that are yours.

Beloved! Refuse to consider lying vanities. That’s to esteem or focus on your problems or challenges. Rather, let your focus be on Abba’s hesed, His mercy and unmerited favor.

Say this with me: I CONSIDER JESUS AND HIS FINISHED WORKS IN ALL THINGS, I REST IN HIM!

When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord’ (Luke 5:8).

Jesus blessed Peter with a boat-sinking, net-breaking load of fish, and when Peter saw God’s goodness, he bowed down at Jesus’ feet and said, ‘depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.’

Now, pay close attention here! Which came first: Peter’s repentance or the goodness of God? Clearly, it was the goodness of God that came first.

My dear, it’s truly the goodness of God that leads to repentance. Preach the goodness of God and allow the goodness of God to lead people to repentance. Such repentance will be true repentance; it will not be motivated by fear, judgment and indignation. It will be motivated by Abba’s grace, His unconditional love and compassion.

True repentance of heart comes from a revelation of God’s immense and unyielding love. It is not found in laws, judgment and indignation. Let people come to church to enjoy God’s goodness, because when they are imparted by Abba’s grace, repentance will surely follow automatically. “To repent” is from the Greek word “metanouia.” It means “to change one’s mind.”

To repent means to change your mind. Repentance happens as the Word of Grace comes forth. As the preaching of the anointed gospel of Jesus goes forth, people’s minds are been changed from their old beliefs that had held them in bondage from receiving the truth that liberates them.

Say this with me: I KNOW AND I BELIEVE THAT IT’S THE GOODNESS OF GOD THAT LEADS TO TRUE REPENTANCE!

… Not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance’ (Romans 2:4).

True repentance from the heart comes from a revelation of God’s immense and unyielding love. It is not found in laws, judgment and indignation. Let people come to church to enjoy God’s goodness because when they are imparted by Abba’s grace, repentance will surely follow. “To repent” is from the Greek word “Metanouia,” which means “to change one’s mind.”

Repentance means changing the mind. Repentance happens as the Word of Grace comes forth. As the preaching of the anointed gospel of Jesus goes forth, people’s minds are been changed from their old beliefs that had held them in bondage from receiving the truth that liberates them.

Beloved, repent from dead works: dead works are not sins; they are the so-called good works that people do in order to gain righteousness. For example, if you pray because you believe that praying makes you right with God, that’s typically a dead work. Pray because in Christ you are already right with God, you are a member of Christ’s body, of His flesh and of His very bones, and you know that He loves you, this way far more mighty power would be released.

Say this with me: I KNOW AND I BELIEVE THAT IT’S THE GOODNESS OF GOD THAT LEADS TO TRUE REPENTANCE!

Now when Jesus heard these things, He said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing’ (Luke 18:22).

The one thing that you lack will always show up when you focus on your works. In Luke 18, the rich young ruler asked Jesus, “what must I do to inherit eternal life” and Jesus gave him the Law of Moses in order to show him one thing he lacked. But, in John 3, Nicodemus asked Jesus and said, “How can a man be born again?” And Jesus taught him John 3:16, “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Whenever you come boasting in your efforts, Jesus will give you the Law of Moses. Like the rich young ruler, He will show you the one thing that you lack. My friend, if you come to the Lord full of self-righteousness and boasting in your ability of having kept the Law, He will show you that according to the law there is a “one thing you still lack,” thereby making you guilty of all.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY QUALIFICATION!

And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold’ (Luke 19:8).

In Luke 18, when the law was presented to the rich young ruler in its pristine, he could not give a cent or dollar. But in Luke 19, when Zacchaeus, whom was a sinner, saw grace, He gave far much more. Halleluiah!

Zacchaeus was a corrupt tax- collector, a sinner, but instead of giving him the Law of Moses, Jesus showed Him grace and invited Himself to Zacchaeus’ house. Jesus never condemned him - He showed him the goodness and grace of God that leads to true repentance. And Zacchaeus was transformed!

The Law condemns the self- righteous, but grace will transform a sinner into a saint vitally! When you experience His grace you can't help but be generous. Like Zacchaeus, Jesus didn't ask him to give, He just gave.

Beloved, say this with me: GRACE IS A TEACHER, IT IS GRACE THAT LEADS PEOPLE TO TRUE REPENTANCE AND INWARD HEART TRANSFORMATION!

For the Grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world’ (Titus 2:11-12).

Beloved, it is grace that has brought salvation to all men! And the word salvation is all encompassing; in it there is liberty, salvation, prosperity, success, wealth, healing, divine health and wholeness. And Christ and His finished works are the embodiment of God’s grace.

Thus, receiving and feeding on Jesus and His finished works will cause you to enter into those things listed above vitally. Note that from the scripture above it’s not the Law that teaches us to do the right things, but it is grace that does so. And this Grace is found in Jesus and His finished works.

Beloved, in 1Corinthians 15, the Bible tells us that “the strength of sin is the law of Moses,” but here in Titus 2:11-12, we see that grace (feeding on Jesus and His finished works) gives you dominion vitally over all things.

Say this with me: GRACE IS A GOOD TEACHER!

O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth…’ (Galatians 3:1).

Galatianism” is essentially a mixture of covenants. It is the intermingling of teachings about God which contains a little bit of the Law and as well as a little of grace. E.g. “sometimes God is happy with us, while at some other times He gets angry.”

The Corinthian church was in a mess, yet Paul never called them, “O foolish Corinthians,” rather He revealed their identity to them and said such like, “your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost”; he told them that “you will judge angels and the world” and as such do not need to take any other to court where an unbeliever presides as judge; he told them, “you are washed, you are sanctified, you are justified”. But He called a mixture church, “O foolish Galatians.”

To Paul wrong doctrine was worse than wrong behavior. To God wrong doctrine is worse than wrong behavior. When the case was of wrong behavior, the message Paul gave the Corinthians was positive, he taught them about the “Christ-in-you-the-consciousness,” thus, bringing the consciousness of their identity in Christ to them.

But concerning wrong doctrines in Galatia, He rebuked them, because they nullified God’s grace by mixing it with the law. Beloved, since Paul was full of the Holy Spirit and his anger was Spirit-inspired, it will benefit us to really understand why the mixing of law and Grace angered him? And the answer is simply this, “GOD HATES MIXTURE.”

My dear, grace is the solution to wrong behavior. Take dirty laundry for “wrong behavior” and the washing machine for “grace.” If you have wrong behavior, as long as there is grace in the Church, grace will teach and give you the power to overcome your wrong behavior.

Say this with me: GOD HATES MIXTURE

And if by Grace, then it is no more of works: otherwise Grace is no more Grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more Grace: otherwise work is no more work’ (Romans 11:6).

God does not want you to balance grace with the Law, He does not want you to be mixing works and grace. In Galatians, Paul pronounced a double curse on the preacher of mixture, thus our response to mixture of law and grace should be strong too.

The problem of most churches is not that they dwell on pure law, but on mixture. They call it the balancing of grace with the law. What man may see as balance, God calls the same mixture. My friend, you cannot balance law and grace, your justification is either entirely a work of His grace or it is by your own works.

Grace is the undeserved, unmerited and unearned favor of God. The moment you try to earn the free favors of God, His grace is nullified. Dear, now that we are in Christ, God wants us to be vitally blessed on the account of His Son and what He did on the Cross and by His resurrection. This has nothing to do with our performance or ability to keep the law.

Beloved, let your eyes be fixed on Jesus and His finished works and not on yourself.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY SOLE QUALIFFICATION! AND I REST STRONGLY ON HIM!

And no man puts new wine into old wine skins: else the new wine does burst the skin, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine MUST be put into new wine-skins’ (Mark 2:22).

The new wine represents the new covenant of grace, while the old wine skin represents the old covenant of Law. Old wine skins are brittle, hard and inflexible. That is the Law. The new wine is sweet and fresh, thus refreshing. That’s Grace.

From the scripture above, Jesus clearly tells us that if you put new wine (grace) into an old wine skin you will lose both. That is to say that you will be nullifying the effect of grace and the effect to the Law. And God hates Mixture!

Beloved, the purpose of the law is simply this: “The Law was our (referring to the Jews alone, since the Law was not given to the gentiles) schoolmaster to bring us (the Jews and the gentiles) unto Christ, that we (both) might be justified by faith. But after that faith has come, we are no longer under a school master (Law)” (Galatians 3:24-25).

My dear, stop the mixing. Focus on what His grace has done for you! And you will effortlessly reign in life multi-dimensionally.

Say this with me: I AM UNDER GRACE AND NOT UNDER THE LAW. THEREFORE, I REIGN VITALLY AND MULTI-DIMENSIONALLY IN JESUSNAME.

Moreover the law entered, that sin might abound. But where sin abounded, Grace did much more abound’ (Romans 5:20).

Beloved, notice that the Law entered so sin might abound. It clearly means that the more you preach the Law is the more sin will abound, after all ‘the strength of sin is the law’(1Corinthians15:55). Thus, when you see sin and you preach more of the Law, you are literally adding dry wood to fire.

THOUGHT LINE: where sin abounds, Grace super-abounds: where sin thrives, Grace will thrive even much more.

Sin cannot stop God’s grace from flowing, but God’s grace will stop sin. Ask yourself this question, which is greater, your sins or God’s grace? The answer is obvious: God’s grace is always greater. His Grace has and can make sinners vitally righteous.

In Romans 5:20 it says, ‘where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.’ In the Greek, it actually says that where sin abounds, Grace super abounds. Thus where sin abounds, Grace is in super abundance.

It is this super abounding Grace that will rescue you from sin. Vital victory over sin comes when people encounter the super abundance of God’s Grace. So beloved let your focus be on the Gospel of Christ and not on your works. The more you feed on Jesus and His finished works, sins and addictions will automatically break off you vitally. It could be instantly or gradually but the good news is that it’s irreversible.

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him: and with His stripes we are healed’ (Isaiah 53:5).

Beloved, God cannot punish your sins twice. Yes, it is holy, right and just for God to punish sin; but having punished sin on the body of your Substitute, Jesus Christ, God will never demand punishment for your sins again, precisely because He is holy and just.

The wages of sin is death, that’s why Jesus had to die in your place, thus, the price for your sins He has paid. Now, live in super abounding grace, for the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thought line: The wages of sin is DEATH; that’s why Jesus died. But, the GIFT of God is eternal life, righteousness, justification, peace and joy eternally flowing towards you.

My dear, Jesus died as the wage for our sins and, consequently, eternal life has been given to us already as a free gift. God’s justice has already been executed at the cross forever, and God’s justice favors us eternally. God’s justice, today, demands that you have and enjoy all the benefits of the finished works of Christ.

Dear, because all your sins have been punished in the body of your Substitute, Jesus Christ, God’s righteousness, justification and forgiveness are eternally upon your side. By that, even when you fail, God’s grace will super abound and swallow up your failures. Now, When God looks at you, all He sees is the blood of Jesus that has made you completely righteous.

One thing about the Gospel of Grace is that it makes nothing of a man and points everything back to Jesus. Conversely, the Law always points to man: telling you that unless you do this or do that you wouldn’t have your miracle, but when Grace is preached radically, people’s lives will be radically blessed and transformed.

Say this with me: I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY WASHED, SANCTIFIED AND JUSTIFIED BY THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness is come by the Law, then Christ is dead in vain’ (Galatians 2:21).

The Law is essentially deserved favors; that is to say, when you perfectly obey the commandments of God, you will be blessed. While Grace is undeserved favors; meaning, because Jesus obeyed God perfectly, you have been legally blessed and will be vitally blessed simply by believing in Him.

“If being blessed by God today is dependent on your doing, your ability to keep the law perfectly and earn righteousness then Christ died in vain. Then there would be no difference between being under the old covenant of law and being under grace now.” My friend, God found fault with the old covenant (Hebrews 8:6-12).

If being blessed by God today is dependent on our doing rather than on believing what Jesus has done for us already, it’s not grace then, but works then just the same as under the law.

BELOVED, IF YOUR confidence is in your works then you are frustrating the grace of God.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS, HE IS MY PROSPERITY, HEALTH AND WHOLENESS!

And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth….For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ’ (John 1:14 &17).

Grace is not a theology, it is not a subject matter, it is not a doctrine, it’s a person and His Name is JESUS. JESUS IS FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH AND TRUTH IS ON THE SIDE OF GRACE NOT the Law.

My dear, John 8:32 says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The TRUTH (with a definite article) that makes one truly free is GRACE (i.e. JESUS who is actually grace and truth and through whom it came) and not the teaching of the Law.

Sin is strengthened when the law is preached. The Law brings bondage and fear and ministers death, but the more grace you receive through feeding on Jesus and His finished works, the more power and dominion you will vitally exercise over sin and addictions.

IT IS THE teaching of grace that liberates one from his vilest sins and worst fears.

Say this with me: I AM FREE; THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS ETERNALLY MADE ME FREE. I AM FREE FROM SIN, FREE FROM LACK, FREE FROM ADDICTIONS, FREE FROM DEATH. I AM A LIFE GIVER! GLORY!

And believers were the more added to the Lord; multitudes both of men and women’ (Acts 5:14).

Do you know that it was right after Ananias and Sapphira died in the church that the Scripture above happened? But what can you think was the reason for that? In the book of Acts, when it talks about a believer, they are usually called as “a certain disciple,” “certain brethren” or “certain teachers and prophets.” For example, “a certain disciple called Ananias:” this Ananias got Saul’s eyes opened and got him filled with the Holy Ghost (see also; Acts 19:1).

But when it comes to the unbelievers in the book of Acts, Luke used the word “a certain man” or “a certain woman” and not “a certain disciple.” For example, “a certain man, lame from his mother’s womb” (Acts 3:2), “a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius” (Acts 10:1), and then “a certain man named Ananias with his wife Sapphira” (Acts 5:1: see also; Acts 19:13-16). This principle was pretty much consistent through the whole book of Acts.

Therefore, on the bases of the above established principle, we can thus conclude that Ananias and Sapphira were not born-again, they were ‘con-artist,’ they were in the church with ulterior motives that would have hurt the Bride of Christ, which is the Church, but the Lord was right there protecting His Bride whom He so much loves and delights in. Just like He did protect them from Saul by meeting him on his way to Damascus!

And when the people saw or heard of the love of the Lord towards His Bride, the Bible says a great multitude of men and women were added to the Church.

My friend, if they were believers who had died in the church, I tell you not only the members would have run away, even the leaders would have taken to their heels as well. But God is for us always.

CHRIST’S LOVE FOR His Church is consistent and never changing. He jealously and zealously guards His Bride. We got nothing to fear under the shadow of His wings.

Say this with me: I AM THE LORD’S BRIDE, HE SO MUCH LOVES ME! AND HIS LOVE FOR ME IS SWEETER THAN WINE!

And Joses, who by the Apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is being interpreted, the son of consolation)… Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostle’s feet. BUT a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession and kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it…’ (Acts 4:36-5:2).

In part 53, I explained to you that this Ananias and his wife Sapphira were not believers. If you look at the context of the scripture above you will see that, they were con-artist and they wanted to gain influence in the church like Barnabas the son of consolation (a similar story can be found in the same book of Acts 8:14-24). But the Lord protected His Bride from them. In the same way, He protects you today.

Ananias means grace, while Sapphira is the sapphire stone, the same which is the exact type of stone God wrote the Ten Commandments on.

This thus gives us a picture of grace (Ananias) married to law (Sapphira), and what we get as a result of the combination is a mixture or lukewarmness, like what Jesus said in Revelation 3:15-16, “because thou art lukewarm (mixing of cold (law) and hot (grace), and neither cold (law) nor hot (grace), I will spew you out of my mouth.” Hence, Ananias and Sapphira died.

The good part is this, right after the mixture problem (Ananias and Sapphira) was dealt with and taken out of the Church and buried by the young men (a new generation of pure unmixed grace teachers), there were more miracles, signs and wonders everywhere, and a great multitude of men and women were added to the Church.

My friend, the time for these things to happen again in the body of Christ is now! And “it’s happening through you and me,” says the Spirit of the Lord. Glory!

MIXTURE IS NEVER God’s prescription for the Church. Pure grace is what he wants for us (2 Peter 3:18; Titus 2:11-15).

Say this with me: GOD ALMIGHTY IS PROTECTING THE BODY OF CHRIST FROM EVERY CON-ARTIST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

…They which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ’ (Romans 5:17).

My friend, if you are getting drowned, that’s would not be the right time when you need a teacher to teach you the right steps to take in order to swim and save yourself; you don’t need a list of do’s and don’ts. What you need is a Savior, who is willing to plunge fearlessly into the water to save you, regardless of what you know or don’t know, regardless of what you have done or not done.

Beloved, Jesus has already done more than this for you, receive His grace and His free gift of righteousness and reign in life, dear. When you reign in life, you reign over sin, addictions, forces of darkness, sickness, poverty and failure etc.

Grace is only grace when it is undeserved, unearned and unmerited. And grace is Abba’s will for you. Under grace our own part is to believe in Jesus and receive all that He has done or accomplished on our behalf through His Finished works.

Say this with me: I AM RICH, I HAVE ALL THE MONEY I NEED, BECAUSE GOD HAS MADE ALL FAVOR AND HEAVENLY BLESSINGS TO COME TO ME IN ABUNDANCE IN JESUS NAME!

…surely will those who receive God’s overflowing grace and the free gift of righteousness reign as kings in life, through Jesus Christ’ (Romans 5:17; Amp).

The word “reign” above is from the Greek word “basileuo,” which means “to reign in life with kingly dominion.” The secret of reigning in life with kingly dominion lies with you receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for you via His finished works.

We reign simply by receiving God’s overflowing grace and the free gift of righteousness and not by trying to achieve it by works. God’s way is not about achieving but about receiving. Romans 5:17 didn’t say that when we achieve or earn grace and our own righteousness we would reign in life with kingly dominion, it’s simply about receiving and not achieving.

Beloved, you are a success already because of what Jesus did for you through the cross, therefore, don’t go to your work place with a mindset to achieve success, go there rather to manifest the success you were born with in Christ.

The world’s system believe that self-effort + diligence= success. But the foolishness (wisdom) of God which is wiser than all the wisdom of the world put together says that receiving God’s overflowing grace + His free gift of righteousness=true success.

My friend, which is greater, man or God? Of course it’s God! Whose report shall you believe; God’s or men’s? The world tells you that the more you do, the harder you work, the more hours you put in, the more success you will achieve, but God wants us to stop trying to achieve success by depending on ourselves and focus on receiving vitally what Jesus has given to us already.

BELIEVE THE WISDOM of God and His report concerning you that it’s through His abundant grace and free gift of righteousness that you reign in life and live successfully.

Say this with me: IN CHRIST I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS, HAVING AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT, AND PROSPERING IN EVERY SINGLE AREA OF MY LIFE IN JESUS NAME! AMEN.

“And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground” (Luke 22:41-44).

In the garden of Gethsemane, just as documented in the scripture above, Jesus made a decision that forever change His destiny and ours. He chose not to abandon us and return to heaven, but to remain and be pierced at the cross so that He could be with us and serve us forever.

Jesus, the perfect servant, did not choose to go out freely but stayed on earth because He loved His Father and He loved His bride, the Church. There is a spiritual suffering in the scripture above that we do not see sometimes when we go through the lines of the verses.

Firstly, there was a spiritual cup offered to Him. And in that cup were all the sins and curses of the whole world. All our filth (past, present and future) was in that cup. And to drink that cup meant He would be separated from His father, whom He loved.

Secondly, Jesus was given a choice to drink the cup of our sins or to go home to heaven. If he had rejected the cup, His father would have had to bring Him home and the whole world would have literally gone to hell because of sin. But Jesus loved us so much that he stayed. He drank the cup of our sins to the very last dregs. He went all the way for us—all the way to the cross.

Thirdly, the piercing is a sign of His love forever (and His servanthood). Exodus 21:2-6 tells us that if a servant says, “I do not want to go out freely, even though it is my right to do so because I love my master, wife and children.” The master will take a sharp instrument and pierce the servant’s earlobe and this will be done at a door post. His blood will be shed and some of it will be left on the door post. The judges of Israel will witness this too. From then on, the servant will have a hole in his earlobe and something will be put there to keep the hole open. His pierced ear serves as a sign to others that he is now a slave by choice. This is a type and shadow of what Jesus did for you and me. What a loving Savior we have.

Say this with me: JESUS CHRIST, THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME PAST, PRESENT,AND FUTURE! I AM GRATEFUL ABBA FATHER, BECAUSE ALL MY SINS, JUGEMENT AND FILTH WERE IN THE CUP THAT JESUS DRANK ON MY BEHALF.

If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself. And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him forever’ (Exodus 21:2-6).

Looking at the scripture above closely, do you think a Hebrew servant would give up his freedom after 6 years of slavery lightly? Even if he does, would he say that it was because he loved his master, and even above loving his wife and children? This speaks of JESUS’ servanthood.

At the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus, the perfect sacrifice, did not chose to go out free but stayed on earth because He loved His Father and His bride, the Church. And because of that he was later scourged and pierced by a crown of thorns, nails and a Roman soldier’s spear.

Today, the only man made things in heaven are those scars in His hands, head, side and feet. They will forever remain as a sign of His love for us. And when we see them, we will be reminded of how much He loves us. He didn’t have to, but he chose to.

At the cross, He cried, “my God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And the result of that separation and rejection which he suffered was your blessing –‘The Lord makes His face shine on you (Numbers 6:25). Jesus paid the price so that God would always smile on you and never leave you nor forsake you. He took the fullness of all punishments so that you can enjoy the fullness of forgiveness (past, present and future).

Jesus’ sacrifice was a sweet smelling aroma to the father (Ephesians 5:2). At the cross, Jesus pleased the Father to the full (John 10:17-18). Jesus was innocent. He knew no sin, He did no sin and in Him was no sin ever found, yet He suffered and died for our sins because He loved His Father and He loved us.

He was scourged far beyond the demands of the Jewish customs and standards, because the Roman soldiers were not Jews and hated the Jews—all went for our wholeness, health, prosperity and eternal forgiveness. We do not know how many times Jesus was whipped but it was enough to expose the bones in His back (Psalms 129:3; 22:17). His bones were staring at him.

It will be an insult to Christ to believe that your sins are not forgiven. HE took the fullness of the punishment, so that you can enjoy the fullness of forgiveness. You are forgiven completely of an entire lifetime of sins!

It was love for the Father and His bride, the Church which stirred Jesus unto dying the death of the cross.

Say this with me JESUS TOOK THE FULLNESS OF ALL MY SINS AND PUNISHMENTS, SO THAT I CAN ENJOY THE FULLNESS OF FORGIVENESS. I AM FORGIVEN COMPLETELY OF AN ENTIRE LIFETIME OF SINS! GLORY TO GOD!

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father’ (John 10: 17-18).

In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus made a decision that forever change His destiny and ours. He chose not to abandon us and return to heaven, but to remain and be pierced at the cross so that He could be with us and serve us forever.

JESUS is Lord, He is God, but He is also our servant. And it is pride not to allow Him to serve us. When Peter refused to allow Jesus wash his feet, Jesus said, “If I do not wash your feet, you are no part with me” (John 13:8).

It is humility for us to allow Jesus minister to us; cast all your cares on Him. We want to minister to the Lord; we want to do things for the Lord. But what can we give except that which we have received from Him? So the greatest thing you can do is to receive from Him.

In the midst of all His suffering, the dying thief brought refreshment to Him. The dying thief refreshed Jesus’ heart when He put himself under the fountain of His blood. It’s the nature of Jesus’ heart to love and to serve and we are the objects of His love.

Beloved, in heaven one day, we will see Jesus’ wounds and we will remember that he did not have to remain and be pierced for our sins, but He chose to because he loved us! Put yourself under the fountain of His blood and let Him be at your service, in this way you would be bringing refreshment to his heart. He is refreshed when he serves you. He is refreshed when you depend on him and receive from Him.

Receive the invitation and ministration of Jesus and be humble under Him.

Say this with me: JESUS CHRIST, TODAY I CAST ALL MY CARES UPON YOU. I KNOW AND BELIEVE YOUR FINISHED WORKS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME! CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ANYTHING I WILL EVER NEED OR DESIRE IN LIFE!

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also’ (James 2:19-26).

The scripture above tells us that faith without works is dead; the scripture also gave us two examples of people who were justified by their works. Abraham according to the scripture above was justified by works when he offered his son Isaac, and by that action his faith was made perfect.

Note that Abraham was made righteous by faith in Genesis 15, “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness” (Genesis 15:5-6).

Apostle Paul speaking about Abraham’s experience in Genesis 15, he said the Gospel was preached ahead of time to Abraham, and he believed and it was counted to him for righteousness.

That’s to say, God preached the gospel in shadows and types through the stars to Abraham and he believed and it was counted to him for righteousness. If this was not the case we also should go and count stars to become righteous! Beloved, believing in the gospel like Abraham did has made us eternally righteous.

The book of James says that Abraham was justified when He offered Isaac. Note that, It was in Genesis 22 that Abraham offered Isaac, and that took place 40 years after Genesis 15 when he believed God and its was counted to him for righteousness. Thus, James was talking about justification before men. That’s to say, Abraham believed the gospel in Genesis 15 and it was counted to him for righteousness before God. But when His servants came back with the news of how Abraham almost offered his beloved son Isaac as a sacrifice to God, but God provided for Himself a lamb, Abraham received justification before men. What James is saying is that you are the righteousness of God! However, on the path to destiny (which is represented by the 40 years), let this nature of God you have in you be manifested vitally, in that way your faith is made perfect.

Someone might say, “Pastor Gee, what about Rehab?” Check this out, “And she said unto the men, I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the Lord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.

Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the Lord, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father’s house, and give me a true token: And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death” (Joshua 2:9-13).

Did you Notice that what Rehab heard that melted her heart to save the spies actually happened over 40 years ago. Thus, her saving of the spies was a result of what had already happened in her heart many years ago. She believed in the Lord God that He is God of heaven and earth. She believed in Yahweh God, and this made her to save the spies. Thus, James is saying, Let this gospel you have believed be seen on the outside. He is saying, Let your light shine amongst men, that they may SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS and glorify your Father in Heaven.

Observe that Abraham actually tried to offer Isaac as a sacrifice; the Law says, “Thou shall not kill.” Rehab actually lied to save the spies, and the Law says, “Thou shall not lie.” God truly is merciful, for where sin abounds, grace super-abounds.

Say this with me: I AM RIGHTEOUS AND THIS RIGHTEOUSNESS I HAVE WITHIN ME IS MANIFESTED VITALLY ALL AROUND ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS! THE ZOE LIFE I HAVE NOW, I MANIFEST IT VITALLY MULTI-DIMENSIONALLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ (Romans 10:17).

Faith is the key to vital supernatural increase, and meditation is the major faith generator. The way the blessings and promises of God come upon us vitally is through faith, and the Law is not of faith.

Faith comes as the light and understanding from the gospel of Christ enters you. Faith is not the end; faith is a means to the end. The vital blessing is the end, while faith is the means to the end (the vital manifestation of the blessing).

Since faith is the means to the end, it means that once faith is there and you know what to do with faith, then it is settled. It is done. Note that you believe as much as you know. Psalms 119:130 tells us that “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” There are two types of lights I want to emphasis on and they are glimmers of light and flashes of lightening.

Glimmers of light are step by step, gradual increase in revelation of the Word. Beloved, if your eyes are single, your whole body will be full of light. If your body is going to be full of light, your faith must have focus. Give priority to the Word, especially in the area you need supernatural light.

Dearie, when you see greater light in scriptures, leave what you believe and camp with the greater light. Leave the revelations of John the Baptist and camp with the revelations of JESUS and His finished works which is far greater.

My friend, faith compresses time. As you see greater light in JESUS there is a compression of time. Thus, what has usually taken 20years, in a split second, in a short period of time you would have achieved or received it. When you open up yourself to supernatural light, there is a compression of time. What others have been doing for years, in one minute, it will come to you.

Note also that, when you are beginning to say or think that, “Ah is it the same message again?”, “grace again?” it means that you are just beginning to understand it. When Abraham saw light, supernatural light from the story of the stars about JESUS and His finished works, God looked at him and said, “So shall your seed be.”

The first time God told Abraham he was going to have a child, he laughed. But when supernatural light came through the gospel of Jesus through the stars, He didn’t laugh! Beloved, believe in the finished works of Christ, instead of believing in what you can do to cause God’s will to come to pass. Meditate and give yourself wholly to the gospel of Christ. Faith is of the heart.

 

There is a difference between glimmers of light and flashes of lightening. Glimmers of light is build up over time as you meditate on God’s word, while flashes of lightening is when the supernatural light of God shines on you, in one second you will know a million things.

Flashes of lightening are when packets of lights come to you and change your life dramatically. Flashes of lightening come as we meditate on the person of JESUS, upon His love and His finished works and praying in the Holy Ghost alongside.

In prayer, there is the burning phase, which I will liken to the experience of the two disciples of Jesus on their way to Emmaus. As they fellowshipped with Jesus, their hearts burned within them. My dear, go beyond that phase in prayer to the phase where you start seeing visions clearly, that’s the revelation phase. I will again liken the revelation phase to when JESUS broke the bread before the same disciples and their eyes became opened. Glory to God!

Prayer and meditation are two vehicles through which you can birth and channel mountain moving faith.

Say this with me: I FUNCTION WITH MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH! AND TIME HAS BEEN LAVISHLY COMPRESSED FOR ME FAVOURABLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron’ (Deuteronomy 28:23).

The scripture above is a picture of one of the curses of the law that Jesus on cross absorbed. The heaven over one’s head becoming brass or gates of brass represent those experiences whereone expected supernatural intervention or open doors and it never came, even after praying so much yet no change was seen. My dear, Jesus Christ has eternally delivered you from these kinds of experiences when He died for you.

The earth under one becoming iron means when such fellow sows he will not reap, there won’t be harvest, and thus, he will get offended. My friend, while Jesus was on the cross He eternally exempted you from this kind of experience. He took all the curses and gave you all ofheaven’s blessings beyond measure.

Brass generally speaks of judgment in scriptural adumbrations.

Isaiah 45:1-3 says, “Thus saith the Lord to his anointed,…, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel”

God is saying in the above scripture, I will remove sin, the curse of the Law, judgments, accusations, shame, disgrace, guilt and condemnation from you, as represented by the gates of brass. Bars of Iron also speak of judgment, bondage, poverty, lack, spiritual bondage, negativities, imprisonment, suffering, bad habits and addiction that are as a result of the things you did or didn’t do in the past.

My dear, for you to eat the hidden riches and treasures, the bars of iron and the gates of brass must be broken and that’s what JESUS has done for you and me through His finished works. It’s receiving time now.

Beloved, glimmers of light of the revelation of the gospel of Christ will cause gradual vital changes, while flashes of lightening of the revelation of Jesus and His finished works will cause vital dramatic change.

When flashes of lightening come, the next thing that should follow is action, e.g. sowing of seeds. After The plague of light at Goshen and darkness in Egypt, Pharaoh did not allow Israel to go, there was no change, the next plague was after they sowed seed, they gave the pass over lamb, the next day there was a dramatic change such that they did not only leave Egypt, but everything they asked for or wanted from the Egyptians was also given to them.

Note that faith expects the best, but it’s ready for the worst. In Hebrews 11 we see the best by faith and the worst by faith. When spiritual light comes, remember not to go to Herod’s palace. When the shining star is leading in the way don’t go to Herod’s palace like the Wise Men did and brought more havoc on their world. Had they stayed longer, they probably would have lost the star.

Say this with me: DEAR ABBA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SACRIFICE HAS GIVEN ME ALL HEAVEN’S BLESSINGS BEYOND MEASURE! AND I AM VITALLY ENJOYING THIS BLESSDNESS NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you’ (Matthew 17:20).

Beloved, we all get faced with mountains at different points in our lives. Mountains depict problems and difficulties that appear intimidating and impossible. The doctor’s grim diagnosis, piled up bills, threats of natural disaster, dragging court cases, years of barrenness; these can be mountains standing before you. But Jesus says that your faith, released in words, will move any mountain.

Note, the statement in the scripture above was actually said before the cross of Jesus! And the cross made a mighty difference for us. The cross of Jesus has already crumbled every mountain before us. The cross has given to us already everything that pertains to life and godliness. The cross brought us to a place where all the promises of God in Christ JESUS are yea and amen even before we ask. All things are ours already. Glory to God! Both of the best things present and the ones in the future they are legally ours in Christ.

My dear, Christ never minced words. He said what He meant and meant what He said. Child of God, your faith will move those mountains vitally! Legally those mountains have no foundation at all; the cross of Jesus has destroyed the mountains and their foundations forever. It’s time to ensure vitally what the cross of Jesus has already done in your life legally.

My friend, have you observed that every time Jesus spoke about mountain-moving faith, He linked it up with prayer? (See Matthew 17:20, 21; 21:21, 22 and Mark 11:23, 24.) Why the connection? There is a seat of logic in everyone. This gateman regulates our lives based on information and experience. The gate might allow thoughts of moving a molehill, but it will refuse passage to thoughts of moving a mountain.

As you pray, the peace of God displaces the gateman of logic and garrisons your heart - the production center (Proverbs 4:23; Philippians 4:6, 7). This peace opens your heart to the inrush of revelation knowledge, overwhelming authority, supernatural wisdom or the impetus for action required for the miracle.

This garrison of peace will drive out contaminants of doubts and empower you to possess the promise vitally. George Muller once prayed and received millions of dollars to take care of thousands of young folks in his orphanage. Mountains of poverty and lack moved at his words. The same way, prayer will help refine your faith and give your words mountain moving power!

PRAY RESTING UPON the victory Christ on the cross, and your faith will surely move mountains of whatsoever kind.

Say this with me: I HAVE MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH! MY FAITH WHEN RELEASED IN WORDS WILL MOVE ANY MOUNTAIN.

What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For what does the Scripture say? …Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness’ (Romans 4:1-3).

The Bible says we are seeds of Abraham. Abraham was a man that God called His friend. When God was headed for Sodom and Gomorrah, He had to stop by at Abraham’s place to discuss with him about His intentions and plans. Genesis 18:17-19 says, “And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I HAVE KNOWN HIM…” Glory!

The bible tells us that Abraham was very rich because God had blessed him in all things (Genesis 13:2; 24:1). To crown it all, God powerfully attested to Abraham’s life in Romans 4 when He said concerning him, “And NOT BEING WEAK IN FAITH, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. HE DID NOT WAVER AT THE PROMISE OF GOD THROUGH UNBELIEF, but was  strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised  He was also able to perform” (Romans 4:19-21; NKJV). How did all these become possible in Abraham’s life especially when you consider that he wasn’t always a perfect person?

There were times when he lied about Sarah being his sister just to save his skin (Genesis 12:13; 20:1-5) and he even slept with Hagar - his wife's maid - even after God had promised him a child through Sarah (Genesis 16:1-15).Definitely the secret couldn’t have been in his character! The secret is: “...Abraham BELIEVED GOD and it was accounted to him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3). Abraham was the first recorded man that was accepted as righteous on the basis of what he believed (Genesis 15:6). All that you see in Abraham’s life and more are yours.

Because you believe in the sacrifice of Jesus, you are God’s son, you are blessed, you are rich and God has a good report of you just like he had about Abraham. The secret of a fruitful blessed life is believing in God! You are blessed because you believe. That is the secret.

AS SEEDS OF Abraham that we are, we don’t just share in his blessings through Christ, but also in his example of faith, which was his great spiritual secret.

Say this with me: I AM A CHILD OF GOD. I BELIEVE GOD. I BELIEVE I AM HEALED; I BELIEVE I AM RICH; I BELIEVE I AM BLESSED AND I BELIEVE THAT ALL MY SINS HE HAS FORGIVEN! I AM LIVING A FRUITFUL FULFILLING LIFE BECAUSE I BELIEVE.

Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the Mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.’ Galatians 4: 21-26.

My friend, Hagar means “Flee” (1st flee and final flee) see Genesis 16:1-9, Genesis 21:1-10 for the details of the two flee of Hagar. 1st flee = signifies Old Convent era (mixture; grace and law) while the 2nd and final flee = signifies GRACE; New Covenant era (Pure Grace). It’s the 2nd and final flee you see in our opening scripture.

Hagar represents the Mosaic Law that leads unto bondage, while Sarah represents the new covenant that gives freedom from bondage and brings men to God, making them His beloved kids by New Birth.

To cast out the bond woman and her child means or represents that the Old Covenant has being cast out, thus it has no part in the Christian program. Christians are not under one detail of the Laws of Moses, including the Ten Commandments.

Just as Hagar and Ishmael were cast out of Abraham’s home and received no inheritance with Isaac, so the laws of Moses and the gospel cannot mix. They are two different contracts. One is abolished and the other (Grace) is still in force.

My dear, Galatians 5:1 gave us 2 instructions. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Stand fast in the liberty (freedom) from all bondage of the law. Because Christ has already made you free from the bondage of the law.

Be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage to the law. Glory to God!

Say this with me: I STAND STRONG IN THE LIBERTY WHERE WITH CHRIST HAS MADE ME FREE, AND I REFUSE TO BE ENTANGLED AGAIN WITH THE YOKE OF BONDAGE WHICH IS THE LAW.

For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself’ (Hebrews 9:26).

When you get to believe that God has taken away your sins by the sacrifice of Jesus’ body, the Holy Spirit comes upon you and manifestations occur. Jesus by the sacrifice of Himself has put away sin. This is the greatest thing that happened to us. Our sins are taken away not because of any effort of ours, but because of the sacrifice of Jesus body.

Now you have to believe that. You have to believe–take it by faith that–your sins (past, present and future) are taken away. They are forgiven! Isaiah 33:24says, “And the inhabitant shall not say I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.” Did you see the link between sin and sickness? When your sins are taken away, your sickness goes with it.

The problem man had was sin. Sin brought all the sickness, poverty and the problem in this world. Sin brought man’s separation from God. Ephesians 2:1 says, “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.” Death is separation. Spiritual death is separation from God. So, men were separated from God, because of their sins. Sin was the problem. And since we could not deal with sin by our own abilities, God, in His great mercy, came in the person of Christ and took the problem (sin) away.

The Bible says, “It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor)”(2 Corinthians 5:19; AMP).Glory! He came in Christ and restored us to favor with Himself, and cancelled all our sins. With sin taken away, we are in favor with God today and for all eternity.

Yes, with sin taken away, we are healed, delivered and made prosperous. And you have got to believe that! Believe your sins are taken away. You are forgiven. Isaiah 53:1 says, “Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” To believe the report or message of the Lord is very important. It is when you believe the report of the Lord that the arm of the Lord, the finger of God, the anointing, and the power of God will be revealed or manifested to you.

So, what is the report of the Lord? Vs. 5 of Isaiah 53 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” This is the report, message of the Lord; that our sins are taken away. We are forgiven. As you believe this, the power of God manifests on your behalf!

THE POWER IN His grace is released by you believing the report of the Lord.

 

Say this with me: I BELIEVE THAT MY SINS ARE TAKEN AWAY BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS. I AM FORGIVEN AND RESTORED BACK TO FAVOUR WITH GOD. I DECLARE THAT I AM HEALED, DELIVERED AND MADE PROSPEROUS!

Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’ (John 9:1-2).

Under the Law, sin was paid for either by the one who sinned or by someone else. When David committed adultery with Beersheba, he prayed and asked for God’s forgiveness. Even though God didn’t punish him in person, the child died as a result of his sin.

The Law demands that men pay for their sins; this was the clause that the Old Testament hung on. When Moses was given the Law, God told him this, “…The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, BY NO MEANS CLEARING THE GUILTY, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDRENAND THE CHILDREN’S CHILDREN TO THE THIRD AND THE FOURTHGENERATION.” (Exodus 34:6, 7; NKJV).

A curse is the direct consequence of breaking the Law and it visits even to the fourth generation. This is where generational curses came from. Note that the punishment required by the Law does not come based on ‘who’ God is in character. God is merciful, kind, forgiving and abounding in goodness and truth; but the Law requires that the guilty CANNOT be cleared without punishment.

This is why Jesus was asked by His disciples when He came to the man that was born blind, “…who sinned?” The Law had taught them that the punishment for sin can be passed on from one generation to the other. Jesus’ answer, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that THE WORKS OF GOD should be revealed in him,” (John 9:3; NKJV) is very significant.

God was using this man’s case to reveal ‘His’ works. What is God’s work? It is the finished work of Jesus on the cross that ushered in His grace. Hebrews 4:3 says, “…the works were finished from the FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD,” and Revelations 13:8 makes us know that the Lamb was slain from the foundations of the world; thus, God’s work is the Lamb slain. The slain Lamb is the basis of the New Covenant; and in the New Covenants in has been fully paid for.

Beloved, today the clause upon which this New Covenant hangs is found in Hebrews 8:12, and it says: “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and THEIR SINS AND THEIRLAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.” That reads exactly as the opposite to the old. This is the clause God has with the believer today in Christ Jesus. Concerning the blind man, the finished work was revealed in his life. When he heard what Jesus said, he was freed by the truth that God wasn’t punishing him for the sin of his fathers, and then he got healed.

Here’s the good news: God no longer visits the iniquities of the fathers on the children, because Jesus has fully paid for it. As a child of God, there is no generational curse on you today. You are blessed because of Jesus. Look at Him today as the full price for whatever wrong done in your lineage and become everything His Word says you are. You are free! Your Lineage is Heavenly now! You are a Zionite now.

THE CURSE HAS been forever reversed by the once-and-for-all-sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Say this with me: MY LINEAGE IS NOT OF THIS WORLD. I AM OF A HEAVENLY ORIGIN, A LINEAGE OF GRACE. I BELONG TO CHRIST JESUS AND HE HAS PAID THE FULL PRICE FOR ALL MY SINS. I AM FREE BECAUSE OF THE FINISHED WORKS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS!

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin’ (Romans 4:7-8).

In the past, I used to think that blessed people had to be faultless. If I saw things probably going wrong in people’s lives who were born again, I would immediately start looking at their lives to find out their faults. I was under the illusion that the reason I enjoyed the effect of the blessing was due to my faultlessness. I was so wrong!

Beloved, as a matter of fact to be blessed primarily means God isn’t imputing your sin, mistakes and faults against you. When you realize that God isn’t imputing your sins against you, you can then rise to become everything that God wants you to become. That’s the blessing!

As a child of God, you have been declared righteous in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21). The Bible says in Ephesians 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” You are, therefore, blessed because you believe in the finished works of Jesus, and that primarily means that your sins are forgiven.

When you know and believe that your sins are forgiven, the power of the blessing is activated and things begin to work out well for you in life. Like Abraham, you will see God’s favor open doors for you and cause good things to happen for you. The crux of the blessing is that God has forgiven you ALL your sins.

The blessing is not essentially a great spouse, a nice car, a new suit etc. it is the fact that all of your sins are forgiven; and as you walk in it, all those things begin to come to you from God.

Because you are blessed in Christ Jesus (i.e. understand that your sins have been completely forgiven), even if you have challenges and difficulties, you don’t run from God, you rather run to Him and receive grace to live above those challenges (Hebrews 4:16). Blessed people aren’t faultless people; rather they are people whose faults have been forgiven. Their sins are not imputed to them because they were imputed to Jesus on the Cross (Romans 4:23-25).

It doesn’t matter where you live or what you are going through, know that you are not there because of something wrong that you have done. Because you are in Christ Jesus, you are blessed and that means you are forgiven of all your sins!

YOU ARE BLESSED! So my sins are not imputed unto you.

Say this with me: GOD HAS FORGIVEN ME ALL MY SINS AND BECAUSE OF THIS I AM BLESSED. I AM BLESSED BECAUSE OF JESUS. IT IS BECAUSE OF THE BLESSING THAT I DO THE THINGS THAT I DO. I’M RIGHTEOUS; I’M FORGIVEN AND HIGHLY FAVORED!

And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace’ (Luke 7:50).

Imagine that the most immoral, lewd and vulgar woman in your community comes walking into your church service one Sunday morning scantily dressed! She gets into the church and walks straight to where the pastors and ministers are sitting, kneels by the senior pastor’s feet and starts crying! She doesn’t stop at that, she even loosens her hair and begins to use it to wipe the pastor’s feet, kisses his feet and brings out her perfumed oil and begins to anoint his feet! I’m pretty sure some ushers will be grinding their teeth and molding their fists at that point getting ready to ‘discard’ her! This was the exact scenario in Luke 7:36-50! Had this happened outside, it would have been understood. But this happened right in the house of a Pharisee–a very legalistic person. The only possible reason this woman could have gone to that house was because Jesus was there!

When the ‘real’ Jesus is truly revealed in our lives and churches, people will start coming! Jesus doesn’t condone sin, but He sure loves the sinner. The people in that room saw a sinner and a seductress (Luke 7:39), but Jesus saw a woman of faith! The faith that saves, heals, delivers, protects and preserves is the type that sees the forgiveness and love of Jesus as its qualification.

Jesus, seeing how greatly displeased the Pharisee was, told him a story in vs. 41and42, “…a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when THEY HAD NOTHING to pay, he FRANKLYFORGAVE THEM BOTH…”This speaks of man’s inability in repaying God! It doesn’t matter if you are like the woman in this story or you were born in a church and received a bible; we ALL owed a debt we couldn’t pay and God forgave us all in Christ Jesus!

No wonder Romans 3:23 says, “For ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE through the redemption that is IN CHRIST JESUS.” The good news is not that ALL have sinned; but the good news is that ALL have been justified freely by His grace–His love and unmerited favor!

The reason some seem to enjoy this salvation more than others is simply because others don’t value the depth of God’s forgiveness to them. They are still looking at their moral uprightness as a means of receiving instead of seeing the loveliness of Jesus. This woman didn’t go to Jesus that day trying to impress Him with her faith, No! She went worshipping His beauty and loveliness and as she worshipped, Jesus saw her faith because the faith that saves is the faith that sees the grace of Jesus! As you see Jesus today, He sees your faith.

Say this with me: LORD JESUS, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE AWESOME, and I WORSHIP YOU IN ALL YOUR GLORY. I WANT TO THANK YOU LORD FOR PAYING THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR ME TO BE SAVED. YOUR DEATH HAS BECOME MY LIFE. ALL MY HOPE, ALL MY DREAMS AND ALL MY ASPIRATIONS I SURRENDER AT YOUR FEET! THANK YOU JESUS, I LOVE YOU!

For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after’ (Jeremiah 30:17).

There are two stories about restoration in the Bible I want you to see today. In 2 Kings chapter 8 is recorded there the story of a woman who left her city to another to survive a famine, and she was away for seven years! When she returned after the famine and went to the king to have her land back, the king ordered his servants and said, “… restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now”(2 Kings 8:6). Even the proceeds of the field that she did not plough all the years she was away were restored to her. Glory!

The second story is that of Mephibosheth in 2 Samuel 9. Mephibosheth lost his granddad – Saul the king of Israel and his father–Jonathan– while he was a toddler. Consequently, he lost all the royal privileges that were rightfully his. But one day, God moved the heart of king David and he cried out, “Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”(2Samuel 9:1). When Mephibosheth appeared before David, all the royal privileges that he lost were restored to him and more. The Bible says, “And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father’s sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.” ALL (not some) of the father’s land were restored to him. Think about that! The father inherited every land that his grandfather had and they were the kings’ lands; but in one season and in one day everything was restored to him. Thank you Lord Jesus!

Beloved, because of the sacrifice of Jesus, we don’t just look for restoration: His precious sacrifice did far more than restoration. The sacrifice of Jesus, has given to us the much more life of God’s glory! So instead of believing that God will restore your promotion in your office, buy up the whole company. The blood of Jesus, has given you the much more life of God’s glory. That’s beyond restoration, it’s the realm of abundance. It’s the realm of enjoying heaven’s best riches here and now.

Say this with me: THE PRECIOUS SACRIFICE OF JESUS DID FAR MORE THAN RESTORATION FOR ME! THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS, HAS GIVEN TO THE ME MUCH MORE LIFE OF GOD’S GLORY! THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS GIVEN ME THE MUCH MORE LIFE OF GOD’S GLORY. IT’S BEYOND RESTORATION, IT’S THE REALM OF ABUNDANCE. IT’S THE REALM OF ENJOYING HEAVEN’S BEST RICHES HERE AND NOW.

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory’ (Colossians 1:25-27).

Christ in you is the Esperanza (assurance) of glory. This “means also that the Gospel of Christ and His anointing in you is the assurance of Glory.” Christ is already in all believers legally, we have already been brought to Glory legally too. However, to experience this Glory here and now vitally, the Word of Christ, the Gospel should dwell richly in you alongside The Holy Spirit and the revelation of His manifest presence which is the anointing.

Christ in you—the Word and he anointing in you—is the assurance that you will vitally live in divine health, it’s the assurance that you will vitally live in prosperity, success, favor, power, abundance, excellence, and progress vitally.

There are 2 Dimensions of Christ in you, the first is the Word in you (Ps119:105,130; John 15:7), while the second is the Holy Spirit in you (Acts 1:8).

Jesus said that “The Words I speak to you are spirit and life (life giving power)” gives life.

Romans 8:11 tells us that if the same spirit that raised JESUS from the dead dwells in you, He will give life to your mortal body.

Dear friend, Christ in you vitally gives you the overcoming life (prosperous life, indwelling presence, victorious life, fullness of life).

Christ in you also means “The Word and Anointing (Holy Spirit) in you is the assurance you will live in Glory vitally.” Never forget that Christ is already in you as a believer and you have already been brought to Glory legally. I am simply saying the same thing Apostle Paul told the Galatians.

Paul told the Galatians church that “I travail in birth till Christ (The word) be formed in you” (Galatians 4:19). Thus, Paul is saying that the revelation of the Word and the anointing been formed in you also means Christ been formed in you. I tell you Beloved, this will automatically give birth to vitally living the Glorious life that you already have.

CHRIST IN YOU—the Word and he anointing in you—is the assurance that you will vitally live

Say this with me: CHRIST IN ME IS MY ASSURANCE OF THE GLORIOUS LIFE. CHRIST IN ME IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR THE GLORIOUS LIFE! I BELIEVE THAT I VITALLY EXPERIENCE A GREATER DIMENSION OF THE GLORIOUS LIFE NOW, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full’ (John 16:23-24).

Beloved, Jesus gave us the power of attorney, that is to say He gave us full power and authority to act or enforce something in His stead. The jurisdiction of power of attorney depends on how much power the name represents.

Note that, firstly, Jesus inherited His Name, a more excellent Name than that that of the angels by birth as the Son of God (He inherited a great Name). Secondly, God gave Him a Name above every other Name, that at the Name of JESUS, every knee should bow in the three worlds (the greatest Name was conferred on Him). Finally, by his conquest over sin, Satan, disease, death, hell and the grave, He acquired a Name that is above every other Name (Great Name by achievement).

We have the right to use that Name against our enemies. We have the right to use the Name in our petitions, our praise and worship. The Name of JESUS has been given to us.

When Christ rose from the dead, He not only had the key of death and hell, but HE had the very armor the Devil trusted in. He has defeated the Devil, He has defeated all hell, and He stands before the three worlds—heaven, earth, and hell—as the undisputed Victor over man’s ancient destroyer.

Jesus conquered Satan before His own cohorts—his own servants in the dark regions of the damned, and then He stood in that dreadful place, the absolute Victor and Master. And this authority He won has been delegated to us, as ours, now.

His Name has been given to us. It is ours! That which is mine, I do not need faith to use. When we were born into the family of God, the right to use the Name and privilege to use it comes with the new birth.

THE GREATEST NAME, which Jesus inherited after completing the finished work, has been given to us for our advantage.

Say this with me: I HAVE A NAME, I HAVE THE NAME OF JESUS! AND IN THAT NAME, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost’ (Acts 2:38).

This Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was an outcast in the earth and crucified and hung naked before the world—His Name has all power in the three worlds—heaven, earth and hell—and shall go ringing down through the ages. Wherever the shame of the crucifixion has gone, the glory and might and power and honor of that name will go.

Beloved, all that JESUS was and is His Name is now. The Name of JESUS is inseparably connected with salvation ACTS 4:12; 2:38-39. Not only are we baptized into the Name, we pray in the Name. Now, in that Name, the impotent and helpless are made to walk.

What strange hush must have come upon the hearts of the disciples when they realized as they gathered in their little meetings that that Name (Jesus Christ) was the center around which everything revolved (Matthew 18:20).

In Colossians 3:17; they were taught to do things in that Name (JESUS).

Ephesians 5:20; to give thanks always for all things in that Name (JESUS).

1 Corinthians 6:11; they were washed, sanctified, justified in that Name (JESUS).

Hebrew 13:15; make confession to his Name (JESUS).

James 5:14; anointing the sick in the Name of the Lord.

In this grasping world of ours, we attempt to utilize all our possessions; but in the spiritual world, how few of us really know, possess, or enjoy what our deed covers.

THE NAME OF JESUS is exclusively ours by virtue of the new birth and it is our instrument for the miraculous.

Say this with me: I KNOW AND BELIEVE I HAVE A NAME, I HAVE THE NAME OF JESUS AS MY SPIRITUAL HERITAGE, AND I WILL USE WHAT I HAVE, TO THE FULLEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole’ (Acts 4:8-10).

Today, as JESUS is, so are you now in this world. Peter and John did not understand all that Paul afterward revealed to us in Romans, Galatians, and Ephesians, but they did know that Jesus had given them the right to use that Name and they entered into that right with the simplicity of a child: “In Jesus’ name, rise and walk” and they saw results.

You are the offspring of the miracle worker. The miracle working desire is embedded deep in your consciousness. Christianity is based on a series of miracles culminating in Pentecost.

Christianity began in miracles; it is propagated by miracles. Every New Birth is a miracle. Every answer to prayer is a miracle; every victory over temptation is a miracle.

Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is the life of God in man. Christianity is the unveiling of the heart and nature of the great Father-God in the man JESUS and His finished works. And whenever there arises a man or woman whose prayer are heard and answered, the multitudes flock to them.

The answer to the universal craving of man for the supernatural is found in the New Birth and indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit and the Name of Jesus. God is a miracle worker. Jesus was a miracle and is a miracle. The Bible is a miracle book. If we remove supernatural out of Christianity, what we have is religion.

The thing that lifted Joseph from prison to the office of premier of Egypt was a miracle. Israel’s deliverance from Egypt’s bondage was by a series of miracles that shook Egypt to its very foundation. The crossing of the Red Sea and the forty years in the wilderness was a series of miracles. Today, the believer is a bundle of miracle going everywhere to happen to the glory of God.

WE ARE OFFSPRINGS of the Miracle Worker. And the Name is our access and tool in manifesting the life and miracles of the One with the Name.

Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF MIRACLE GOING EVERYWHERE TO HAPPEN TO THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named’ (Ephesians 3:14-15).

Our fourfold right to use the Name of JESUS is: we have been born into the family of God and the Name JESUS belongs to us; we are baptized into the Name, and by being baptized into the Name, we have been baptized into Christ Himself; The Name JESUS was conferred upon us by JESUS Himself, who gave us the power of attorney; we have been commissioned as ambassadors to go and herald this Name among nations.

Beloved, we use the name of JESUS first on the ground of our birth right in Christ Jesus: secondly, on the ground of having been baptized into this Name, JESUS: and thirdly, because the legal right to use the Name JESUS has been conferred upon us; and lastly, on the ground that we have been sent out as ambassadors to herald this Name among nations. I cannot see where we need to have any special faith to use the Name of Jesus, because it is legally ours.

JESUS personified is that Name. All He was, all He did, all He is and all that He will ever be is in that Name now. He is our life now. He gave us life—He is that life He gave us. He is healing, He is health, He is victory, and He is our all in all.

That healing is ours; that Name makes it available to use. That Name is ours and in that Name is all help, all victory, all power and all health. Do not try; do not struggle—just use it. Use that Name with the same freedom you use your check book. The money is on deposit; you write the check without exercising any special faith; that is, you are not conscious of exercising it—you do though. And in the use of Jesus Name, you do exercise faith–it is unconscious faith, the faith that is borne upon us by evidence that convince us beyond the shadow of a doubt.

At the second coming of Christ, it will not require any act of faith on our part to be translated, neither will it require any effort to receive immortality—we shall simply be made immortal. We shall be translated. It will not require any special faith to be resurrected—the resurrection is in the program.

If only we understand His program today, even the sick will be healed immediately the sickness touches them (Romans 8:11; “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”)

Say this with me: I KNOW THAT BY JESUS’S RESURRECTION, I HAVE BEEN JUSTIFIED AND I DO NOT NEED TO BE RE-JUSTIFIED: I AM JUSTIFIED. JESUS SAID, “I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE HE IS MY RESURRECTION; HE IS MY LIFE; HE IS MY HEALING; HE IS MY HEALTH; HE IS MY VICTORY; HE IS MY ALL IN ALL, HALLELLUYAH.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this’ (Isaiah 9: 6-7).

The Name JESUS means justice, love, righteousness, civilization, invention, discovery, art, literature, music, health, happiness, home; the Name means even more. The Name of JESUS has been the only Name that would stop war between Nations. That Name bears within it love, life, light, liberty, joy.

In that Name, we are to cast out demons; heal the sick and perform other mighty miracles that will arrest the attention of the people and cause them to ask, “Who is this Jesus in whose Name you work today?”

Receiving His Name is equivalent to receiving Him. Receiving One in His Name is equivalent to receiving Him. His Name is equivalent to Himself. I believe in His Name; as a believer I have been baptized into His Name, and I walk and live in the Name of JESUS. Jesus said that the Father is glorified in the Son by our praying and asking in His Name. As children of God, all that is in that Name belongs to us.

AS CHILDREN OF GOD, all that is in that Name belongs to us.

Say this with me: THE NAME OF JESUS, BEARS WITHIN IT LOVE, LIFE, LIGHT, LIBERTY, JOY, HEALTH, and PROSPERITY AND WHOLENESS! AND ALL THAT IS IN THAT NAME BELONGS TO ME. HALLELLUIAH!

Saying, What shall we do to these men? For that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus’ (Acts 4:16-18).

It was in their fear they threatened them. It was because the Sanhedrin had fears that they threatened the disciples and told them not to speak or teach at all in the Name of Jesus.

The disciples expected signs and wonders to follow the preaching in the Name of Jesus. Phillip did not only preach the Kingdom, he preached the Name of Jesus as well. It seems that the early Church devoted time to instruct the people on the use of the Name of Jesus. They must have understood what we call today a legal right to use the Name of Jesus.

The Name of Jesus was the battle axe in the ministry of Paul. That Name was in the hands of Paul what the rod was in the hands of Moses. If the Gentiles and Jews could stop the Church from using the Name of Jesus, they would have robbed the Church of its supernatural power, and like Samson when his hair was cut, the Church would become common men. Having lost the power of the Name of Jesus they will be reduced to the position of the shorn Samson.

The Church is a people taken out of the world unto the Name of Jesus, and we are a people who are gathered about the Name—when we meet as one assembly or a Church, we are gathered about the Name of Jesus. It is a supernatural body, clothed with supernatural power, gathered about a supernatural Name.

In Acts 16, we see this same Name that liberated a girl from the power of the demon in the afternoon, now has led the jailer into sonship privileges in the family of God. The Name of Jesus meant more to the early church than it does to some of us; it had a place in their ministry that we do not give it in these days.

Say this with me: THE SAME WAY I HAVE SILVER AND GOLD, I HAVE THE NAME OF JESUS AND I USE IT TO THE FULLEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN.

Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ’ (1 Corinthians 1:1-3).

The disciples walked and lived in the conscious freshness of the power in the Name of JESUS. They appeal to brethren in the Name of JESUS. They worshipped and praised in that Name. My friend, No Name is so great; no Name has so many glories attached to it as the Name of JESUS.

No man writes a deed in Christian lands that does not honor the Name. The date on the document, showing the year of our Lord (A.D) must be written.

The Lord has so arranged it that everyone regardless of his beliefs must acknowledge the birth of Christ every time he dates a letter. Wherever that Name has become known, honored, and venerated, habitations have changed to homes of mothers, position from that of a slave to that of the honored queen, girlhood from being despised to being honored and loved.

Wherever that Name is honored, educational institutions spring up, inventions, scientific and discoveries are fostered. His Name is to be glorified in our lives and ministry. The disciples preached the Name; they herald the power, might and wonders of that Name.

James called it “that honorable Name.”

The sick were anointed in that Name for their healing.

Sins have been forgiven for His Name sake.

The disciples lived and wrought signs and wonders and praised in that Name. To them: that Name meant food and raiment; it meant deliverance from the hand of the enemies; it meant power over demons and diseases; it meant worship and praise and access to God. Enwrapped in that mighty name is the invisible power and miracle working might of the church of JESUS Christ today.

Open your mouth and begin to make declarations in that Name, call those things that be not as though they were in that Name, and the answers will surely manifest vitally.

When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. [55] But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God’ (Acts 7 : 54-55).

The Glory of God was what Stephen saw and the Jews he preached to understood what he meant. They knew that the Glory of the Lord could appear and fill the house of God. They knew that it often looked like a cloud.

Beloved, The Zion city you have been born into is the Glory world, where anything is possible. Even David knew that going to heaven is to be received to Glory (Psalm 73:24), but we believers live in the Glory world now and at times, this Glory, like a cloud, becomes visible for all to see.

Kenneth Hagin had the experience where no one could enter his room, because of the Glory.

Oh, how little we take advantage of his tangible Glory that appears in our meetings, when that was the time for us to literarily jump in and start doing the impossible, and start receiving those things that the finished works of Christ has given to us.

In the Old Testament, the “house of God” was the physical building. At first, it was the tabernacle, which was just a tent. Later, the house of God was called Solomon’s temple, because Solomon built it.

The presence of God–they called it the Shekinah glory–was kept hidden in the Holy of Holies. The Glory of the Lord would be manifested in front of the whole congregation, and they would see it.

The curtain that screened off the Holy of Holies was 40 feet wide, 20 feet high and 4 inches thick.

But when Jesus died on Calvary, all of these changed; this curtain was ripped into two from top to bottom. God moved out of the man-made Holy of Holies in the temple. Now he indwells us individually. We are each, individually temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16, AMP; 1 John 4:4).

It’s true that the individual believer is the temple of God, But also YOU (the whole Church) – wherever located – are God’s temple; His sanctuary.

We talk about individuals being filled with the Spirit, and rightly so. But, blessed be God, that WHOLE BODY, the Body of Christ, can be filled within the vital, glory of God.

Christ was raised up from the dead by the manifestation of the glory of God (Romans 6:4; 8:11).

We hear a lot of what the Holy Spirit will do in a believer, what about what he will do in THE BODY OF BELIEVERS, as a whole because of His indwelling presence (Acts 4:24-31).

The Holy Spirit dwells in you collectively- and He wants to come into manifestation!

The Holy Spirit manifests Himself in different ways, what about manifesting himself in “the spiritual house” (1 Peter 2:5).

Solomon’s temple –that physical building was built with dead stones. We believers, on the other hand are called “lively stones”.

Beloved, pray in the Holy Ghost while reading what you just read all over again! Glory to God!

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise’ (Ephesians 1:13).

God’s promise to believers is self-guarantee. GOD made sure it was all dependent on him and with no human input. One of the spiritual blessings that believers have in Christ Jesus is the promise of the Holy Spirit. Beloved, the Holy Ghost now living in Believers is a proof of Christ’s resurrection, He is a proof that one is sealed or one is born again.

Apostle Paul in today’s passage affirms that we have been sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise. Many do not have a full grasp of what it means to be sealed by the Holy Spirit. Do you know that many foreign products brought into the country had passed through a lot of route and yet the seal are never broken?

Do you know that the only way to identify a genuine Nokia or Samsung product will be by its seal?

Does the seal of your phone disappear each time it falls down or get broken or damaged?

Does your Samsung phone change to Motorola when it gets damaged?

Beloved, if natural man can place a seal on a product and it remains binding forever (meanwhile, these are even ‘photocopies’ from the spiritual), why then do we think God won’t do the same and even beyond. Many often have the erroneous idea that the Holy Spirit leaves (‘departs from’) believers each time a wrong is done, yet the seal on their man-made product never leaves each time the product gets damaged. The absolute truth is that God, with the Holy Spirit will NEVER EVER and FOREVER leave a believer, no matter the wrong deed he falls into (Hebrews 13:5; Amplified).

Beloved, believers have been sealed forever and nothing can take away Gods seal from us, and not even an act of sin. The greatness of this blessing is that God takes responsibility for you and nothing can make him change his mind about you. This ‘seal’ is the guarantor that we are going to see God face to face when he comes for His saints (John 14:16; Amplified).

Say this with me: GOD WITH THE HOLYGHOST WILL NEVER EVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME! I AM FOREVER SECURED IN CHRIST JESUS! AND THE HOLYGHOST IS MY SEAL. GLORY TO GOD!

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise’ (Ephesians 1:13).

One of the basic problem believers often go through on a daily basis is the insecurity and no assurance of their final destination after leaving earth. Religious teachings in certain churches has produced a lot of fear in the mind of some believers by making them think that the last wrong deed of a believer would determine where he or she would spend eternity (i.e. they will go to hell if they fell into some kind of sin. That’s actually far off from God’s truth). This is one of the biggest damages this ‘error nous religious messages’ has done to the body of Christ, and we’re gaining back our grounds.

Beloved, I want you to be free from this fear today, because the matter of your eternity was settled, concluded and sealed the day you received the gift of salvation (2Corinthians 5:17-19). Do you know that you have been saved eternally from everything that can suggest hell to you? Do you know that you were totally translated from the Kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of God’s Dear son at salvation (Colossians 1:12-13)? And not even any act of sin can ever take you to hell, even though this isn’t a license to any act of sin.

Apostle Paul in the context on the opening scripture above assured us that Jesus is coming back for us. Beloved, I want you to know that the Holy Spirit is a down-payment for what Jesus did for us–His perfect finished works! He is the seal and the signed document that we totally belong to Jesus Christ.

Beloved, Jesus already paid it all and we can be sure He is coming back for us. A believer is exactly like Jesus Christ in his spirit today but at rapture we are going to receive a glorified body.

As you go out today, quit the fear you always had about rapture, square up your shoulders and remain eager for the coming of our savior, Jesus Christ, because nothing in this world can ever take you to hell-it is far too late (Romans 8:37-39).

Live life with the full assurance that when he comes, it will be all about giving you a glorified body and not a condemnation about throwing believers to hell (Romans 8:1).

Meditate on this truth, because we have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear but that of sonship with which we cry Abba Father (Romans 8:15-16; 1 John 3:2).

Say this with me: I DON’T HAVE THE SPIRIT OF BONDAGE AGAIN TO FEAR! I HAVE THAT OF SONSHIP WITH WHICH I FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD AS MY ABBA! GOD IS MY ETERNAL LOVING DADDY! HE LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY! HE LOVES ME WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS! HE LOVES ME IRREVERSIBLY.” GLORY TO THE LAMB OF GOD!

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons’ (Genesis 3:7).

Now notice in the verse above, that Adam and eve made cloth for themselves to cover their nakedness.

Yet in verse 21 see what God did

3:21: “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and CLOTHED THEM.”

Do you know that this folks were not naked when God made another set of clothing for them?

Now someone might say, “Well God made cloth from animal skin for them so that it will last longer.” But really? How many clothes did God make in His textile industry for them if durability was the question?

Beloved, God was demonstrating to Adam how he would save humanity from the problem they brought to themselves. He said the seed will bruise the serpent’s head and the serpent will smite the seed’s heels. This was a demonstration of how it would happen.

God was literally saying the seed will need to die to conquer death. God made cloth for them out of animal skin. Think with me for a moment. Do you know God won’t say to any animal to remove your skin so Adam might be clothed with. God had to kill the Animal. And when the animal was killed, beloved, BLOOD was shed.

Hebrews 9:22: “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without SHEDDING of blood is no REMISSION.”

Hear Apostle Paul!

Hebrews 10:18: “Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”

10:19: “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by THE BLOOD of JESUS,

10:20: “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;”

This blood paved a new and living way into relationship with God. Glory to God!

Say this with me: THE BLOOD OF JESUS PAVED A NEW AND LIVING WAY FOR ME! I HAVE GONE THROUGH THAT WAY, AND TODAY, I LIVE VITALLY ENJOYING ALL THE BLESSINGS OF THIS NEW AND LIVING WAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report’ (Hebrews 11:1-2).

One of the Elders’ good report mentioned in the Chapter of the Scripture above is that of Abel. This is the difference between Cain’s and Abel’s sacrifice (Genesis 4). Often time, religion has had us believe that Cain was rejected because he brought in rotten produce from his farm while Abel brought the best animal.

A million times no! Cain was rejected because he came to God on his personal merit (self-effort). On his own good term! Simply put, Cain gave base on works and not faith.

Some sets in the body of Christ say that Cain brought vegetables, or let me say something without blood, while ABEL brought Blood; that was why Cain’s offering was rejected! However, this is not the main reason, because God never said it must be a Lamb, moreover in the Book of Leviticus all the food offerings or grain offerings were sweet smelling savor or aroma to God. Mind you, the sin offerings and trespass offerings which were Bullocks (BLOOD) were not sweet smelling savor to God.

This is the clause! This is the Answer! Hebrews 11 tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God. The same chapter tells us why Abel’s sacrifice was accepted. It says by faith Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice than Cain! The bedrock is that one’s offering was by faith, the other wasn’t. If Cain gave a food offering, as depicted in Leviticus by Faith, God also will smell a sweet smelling savor! Food or grain offering also depicts Jesus and His finished works.

Why all this explanation? This is because I want you to see that the bedrock for vitally enjoying all that Christ has done for you is Faith and not works. Faith in the Blood of JESUS! Faith in the broken body (bread, grain) and shed blood (wine, grape). It’s faith in His finished works.

Say this with me: MY FAITH IS NOT IN MY FAITH NOR MY WORKS! MY FAITH IS IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS! MY FAITH IS IN THE BROKEN BODY OF JESUS AND HIS SHED BLOOD! IT IS IN THE FINISHEDWORKS OF CHRIST.

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, BEHOLD the LAMB of God, which TAKETH away the SIN of the WORLD (John 1:29).

Beloved, Jesus is His Name. He is the lamb offered for Adam in the garden in types and shadows, but we saw its reality on the Cross of Calvary. His sacrifice didn’t cover our sins, He took it away. He took all your sins (past, present and future on His own body).

Behold Him, look at Him, fix your eyes wholly on Him. His death burial and resurrection was the PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR THE SINS OF HUMANITY

As we go about our daily activities, let’s keep meditating and brooding over these Words, because this is what builds us SPECIAL and UNIQUE. 1Peter 2:9, AMP: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

Finally, Matthew 26:28: “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” He shed it once and its effect last forever. Jesus’ blood doesn’t just forgive sin per sin basis, but rather eternally.

He is our perfect High Priest! Glory to God! His sacrifice didn’t just cover your sins; His sacrifice took all your sins away, once for all times! For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.

Say this with me: THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS DIDN’T JUST COVER ALL MY SINS, HIS SACRIFICE TOOK ALL MY SINS, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE AWAY, ONCE AND FOR ALL TIMES! AND BY THE OFFERING OF HIMSELF, I HAVE BEEN PERFECTED FOREVER! GLORY TO GOD!

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named’ (Ephesians 3:14 -15).

Apostle Paul begins his prayer in the above scripture with a family connection, He acknowledged God as the Head of the family. Hey! That means we are in a family where God is the Head! Because he was writing this letter to us, fellow believers!

Think about it for a moment, that you belong to a family and God is the Head of the Family! What comfort would that give to your mind! You’ll flaunt with it, right? That the One who created the whole universe is your Daddy! And actually, He is our real Daddy!

Now if that is true, in your mind’s eye, take it personal and view God as your Daddy, view Him calling out to you this morning asking if you’ve eaten?

Amazing, isn’t it? That the Monarch of the Universe is my Daddy! Wow!

Wow! Religion has told us our only connection with God is that He is our creator and we are just little creatures that always have to beg Him to accept us into his family! Paul said No! He is already the Head of our family!

Now as a member of the Family, Dad loves you so very much, beyond what any human can ever fathom!

Ephesians 2:4: “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us…”

Notice “for His great love,” His love for us is great!

Now for one moment, just think of your everlasting connection with your Daddy! What is strong enough to disconnect you from being a member of that family? Not even your bad behaviors! You would agree with me!

Even your earthly dad can’t get rid of you as a member of his family. Even if he said he disowns you, it does not erase the fact that he’s still your biological daddy? Right?

If the whole world rejects you, your family can’t, even if they tried, you came through them, you can’t switch your dad in the real sense, and he’ll still remain your dad!

Are you getting my point? Really, what could be strong enough to disconnect you from God’s family? Jesus gave an analogy of how our Daddy loves you (Luke 15). You know we are family members, you are probably my elder or younger brother or sister, but certainly, Jesus is our eldest brother!

Say this with me: I BOW MY KNEES UNTO THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY FATHER TOO! MY DADDY’S LOVE FOR ME IS GREAT! AND IT’S ETERNAL!

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?

And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us?

There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture: …

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us’ (Romans 8:31-39; MSG).

This is BIG! Glory to God! Why don’t you read the above scripture all over again!

There was a time when one of us collected his inheritance from our Daddy (God) and squandered it, and almost became a street beggar, he left Daddy and wandered off! And then one day he came back again, sobbing, the amazing thing is Dad accepted him back (Luke 15:11-25). The truth is Dad never disowned him! But like you are presently thinking, he thought, Dad can’t accept him, I have sinned! No! We are Family!

I think we should touch that story a bit:

Luke 15:12; KJV: “And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

13; KJV: And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.”

Luke 15:20; AMP: “So he got up and came to his [own] father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity and tenderness [for him]; and he ran and embraced him and kissed him [fervently].”

Did you notice something? “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity and tenderness [for him]; and he ran and embraced him and kissed him [fervently].”

Next, this will knock out religious dudes…

21 AMP: “And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son [I no longer deserve to be recognized as a son of yours]

22 AMP: “But the father said to his bond servants, Bring quickly the best robe (the festive robe of honor) and put it on him; and give him a ring for his hand and sandals for his feet.”

Let’s look at those scriptures intently, you will see in verse21, that while the son was busy trying to ‘confess’ his sins (wrong deeds), the Father didn’t even care to listen to his confessions, and never even took record of his sins (wrong deeds). That’s the problem with religious folks who preach that God has a book where He records our sins (wrong deeds). If they really know God for who He is, they won’t even dare peddle such messages. SALVATION is not ‘confession of sins (wrong deeds),’ it is the confession of the Lordship of Christ over one’s life.

Even with all his sins, the father said to his bond servants (Verse 22) “Bring quickly the BEST ROBE (the festive ROBE OF HONOR) and put it on him; and give him a RING for his hand and sandals for his feet.”

(That robe was a kingly robe, as the tradition was in that time [Same kind of robe Jesus had on him before being taken off in Matthew 27:32]. So was the ‘ring’!)

Yea! Family ties are not connected by behaviors or actions, so they cannot be broken by actions or behaviors. They are connected by Blood and so can never be broken! Your connection is the All Powerful Blood of JESUS!

Of course God, our Dad, doesn’t like us always getting things in a mess! But understand first that you are part of this Family forever! He can’t think of disowning you!

You know why? When you got into the family, He gave you eternal life (ZOE, His very nature and exact kind of life), to keep you secure, that makes it impossible for you to be out of this Family!

Listen to this: John 3:15: “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

He made it a duty to keep you secured in the Family! It’s a Family affair?

Say this out loud: IT IS A FAMILY MATTER! IT’SBETWEEN BABA GOD AND ME HIS BELOVED SON!

I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us’ (Romans 8:38-39; MSG).

Now, let me ask you? Would you because you offend your Father, go sleep under the bridge? Meanwhile, God is not like our earthly fathers who pass judgments.

I feel someone needs to stop sleeping under the bridge today and embrace our Father’s love. We are Family forever!

Hear what he says here: Hebrews 13:5; AMP: “Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!].”

Do you believe God does not lie? Yea, he doesn’t, so He said, He will not leave you! He said it three times in emphasis and with all intensity, in case you think He meant to say another thing, He said it won’t happen, never! He is your Father!

Have you wondered why your earthly dad still talks about that brother that almost sold the house? He is still his dad! No matter what! Of course he doesn’t like the actions but he is still the dad!

So, what do you think about God? He is still your Dad! And unlike your earthly Father, He is not waiting to knock your head off your neck! Remember that brother that squandered off the money (Luke 15:11-25), He was embraced, not knocked! Knowledge will make you love Him more, seeing that He loves you so much and it will help you in behaving better towards him.

If you’ve blown things up before now, I want you to know that God, the Head of our Family loves you beyond any human imaginations and He can’t think of disowning you, you are a member of this Family, just appreciate His love, and pour your heart to Him in love, No condemnation! He is still your Dad! If you would relate with Him with this knowledge, it would help you live out to the fullest, the ability He has given you as a Family Member! (Romans 8:35-39).

My friend, There’s no place you can go that His love can’t find you. There’s no height you can fall His love can’t catch you. He knows every nitty-gritty about you, and He truly loves you beyond all imaginations, more than a father loves his baby.

Say this with me: GOD LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY! HE LOVES ME WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS! HE LOVES ME BEYOND ALL IMAGINATIONS! HE IS FOR ME TODAY! HE IS FOR ME TOMORROW! AND HE IS FOR ME FOREVER!

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [d]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]’ (Ephesians 2:10; AMP).

God has a Destiny for you! God wants you to live the good life!! God has a prescribed plan for your life, an appointed purpose and destiny! People say things like “what’s meant to be will be,” but that just doesn’t line up with scriptures. Your decisions create an impact on your reality; nothing just happens. The truth is, until you identify God’s plan for your life and understand the process that leads to your destination, you will either delay or forfeit the good life He has planned for you.

The good life is already available to you now! Step into it vitally!

The finished works of Christ has given us all things that pertain to life legally. However, some choices we make today not only determine where we will end up tomorrow, but also where we will be years down the road. Our decisions impact our vital success, happiness, Health and overall well-being. Our choices also impact the lives of others, including our families, co-workers and communities.

Beloved, Life is a series of decisions. Our decisions cause us to take certain actions, which in turn leads to certain habits that shapes our character and impact our destination. A believer’s decision should be wise and biblically based, rather than based on emotions. This is a fundamental key to walking in the plan that God has established for our lives. Allowing our feeling to govern our decisions is like being tossed by every wind.

There is a difference between making a decision and making a quality decision. A quality decision is a choice that matches God’s desire for your life. The Gospels are full of stories about people who made quality decisions to believe Jesus for what they needed and fulfilled their destiny (Mark 5:25-34; Luke 10: 38-42).

Making a quality decision is not always easy. It may require you to step out of your comfort zone, go against the expectation of well-meaning family members and friends, and stand alone. The good news is, when your decisions lines up with the word of God, and His destiny for you, it’s all worth it.

My friend, know that Even before you know God’s specific purpose for your life, making the choice to live by His word will position you in His will.

Say this with me: GOD HAS A DESTINY FOR ME, A GOOD LIFE WHICH HE HAS PLANNED AHEAD OF TIME, AND I AM WALKING IN THEM VITALLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named’ (Ephesians 3:14-15; KJV).

As God’s child, you are entitled to every benefit and privilege that your relationship with Him allows. The blessings available are endless. God wants you to experience His goodness everyday – life will be a lot more rewarding when you give Jesus and His finished works Priority in your life.

God has a Destiny for you! God wants you to vitally live the good life!! God has a prescribed plan for your life, an appointed purpose and destiny! People say things like “what’s meant to be will be” but that just doesn’t line up with scriptures. If what’s meant to be will be, why have you learned how to drive, read, and do other things? You should have not learnt how to do anything at all and see if through osmosis and diffusion everything you know or will know will just drop on you.

Your decisions create an impact on your reality; nothing just happens. The truth is, until you identify God’s plan for your life and understand the process that leads to your destination, you will either delay or forfeit the good life He has planned for you. If you look at the life of Jonah in the Bible, Jonah made a decision, it wasn’t about what will be will be, it was his decision to follow God’s leading or not. Jonah’s emotions caused him to make a decision that took him out of God’s will.

In addition, Jonah’s decision endangered the lives of those around him; they actually lost all their goods. Imagine Jonah went straight to where God sent him to, the story in the Bible would be different. You see that his decisions could impact on the storyline, the same goes for you dear. Make good and quality decisions to fulfill Your God given Destiny.

Say this with me: GOD HAS A DESTINY FOR ME! A GLORIOUS DESTINY! A GREAT DESTINY, FULL OF LIFE AND PROSPERITY! I WALK IN MY GOD GIVEN DESTINY AND MANIFEST THIS DESTINY TO THE FULLEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them’ (Ephesians 2:10; KJV).

The scripture above tells us that we are born again, born in Christ Jesus for good works, for the fulfillment of destiny which God ordained, planned ahead of time that we should walk in them, enjoying the Good life which He prearranged for us to live in. The good life is already available to you now!!! Step into it vitally!

Here are some practical ways to make the right decisions and fulfill God’s will and destiny for your life: Surrender and subject all your plans to the Lord and the leading of the Spirit of God. Surround yourself with godly men and women and imitate their faith and their good character. If you’re unable to make contacts, research there history, see what role faith and character played in their life and business. Learn what they did to get where they are and imitate those things. Don’t lose yourself in the process. Apply what you learn, and become a better you.

In addition, set aside time often to pray and study and feed on God’s word, feed on Jesus and His finished works. Ask the Lord to reveal His will in every situation you encounter. Use scriptures as the foundation for how your life. Don’t be swayed by your emotions or the pressures of life.

One of the greatest powers an average person possesses is the power to choose. If you want to avoid the pitfalls of life, you must learn how to make the right decision, at the right time. God has given you the power to choose, but I encourage you to choose wisely. Choose to walk by faith and not by sight, Choose to build your life based on Jesus and His finished works and by worldly wisdom! Choose to fulfill your God given Destiny.

Say this with me: I REFUSE TO LIVE AN ORDINARY LIFE! I CHOOSE TO LIVE AS THE MAN THAT HAS ZOE VITALLY! I CHOOSE TO LIVE AS ONE THAT HAS A DESTINY, AND I FULFILL MY DESTINY IN CHRIST JESUS!

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God’ (John 3:17-18; KJV).

THE BEST DECISION YOU’LL EVER MAKE IS TO RECIEVE JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOUR OVER YOUR LIFE. Accepting Jesus as Lord and savior is one decision that not only affects your life now. It impacts your eternal destiny. It is the most important decisions you will ever make (Colossians 1:12-14).

Choosing to accept Jesus into your heart and making the word of God your final authority are the first major decisions on the way to your true destiny. Salvation is the key to unlocking your true destiny. Being born again is the first key to opening your God ordained destiny.

True success is found in God and his way of doing things. You will experience lasting fulfillment when everything you do is founded on God’s word, founded on the Gospel of Christ. Proverbs 22:27 tells us that as a believer, the Holy spirit dwells in your spirit and he will lead you in the right direction.

Assuredly, when the Holy Spirit directs your steps, you never have to grope around in darkness, trying to find your way. His guidance will be like the light of a candle that shows you which way to go and which decision to make in every area of your life.

Your relationship with God should be cultivated daily so you can learn to hear His voice, even regarding the minute details of your life. This is one of the benefits of being saved – you get the “inside scoop” on how to proceed in life without having to constantly learn from making the wrong decisions.

Beloved, prosperity is success and wholeness in every area of your life, including your relationships, health, work and – yes- finances, and it came with salvation. And the main reason for prosperity is so that you can be a blessing to other (3 John vs. 2; Genesis 12:2-3; Psalm 35:27).

Here is another benefit that comes with being born again. It’s called angelic assistance. Angelic assistance is another benefit of salvation. Angels are part of God’s plan to bring you to your destination in life (Hebrews 1:13-14). Angels are servants sent by God on your behalf. Not only do they protect you, they help you to usher you into destiny.

Say this with me: THE DAY I BECAME BORN AGAIN, MY GOD ORDAINED DESTINY WAS UNLOCKED! I WALK IN DESTINY! I WALK IN ANGELIC MINISTRATIONS! I WALK IN DOMINION! I WALK IN PROSPERITY! I WALK IN WEALTH, AND I WALK IN HEALTH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?’ (Hebrews 1:14; KJV).

When the bible talks about heirs, it’s talking about you! You are an heir of salvation. You are an heir to an inheritance. In Hebrew, the word for salvation is “YESHUAH”: it means deliverance, victory, prosperity, health and welfare. So when God talks about salvation, he is addressing wholeness in your spirit, soul and body. When you accepted salvation, there is nothing missing or lacking in your life.

If you want to vitally experience the victory that comes through salvation, start speaking God’s word all the time. Speak to your challenges. If you want to get out of debt or have dreams of owning a business, feed on the finished works of Jesus Christ, find scriptures on those things and say them until your heart becomes established in them. When you do this, you release spiritual forces that vitally rearrange things in your life.

Salvation is more than just forgiveness of sins. God didn’t just deliver you from sins. He delivered you from sickness, addictions, poverty, and everything else the enemy tries to use to attack you. You are now an heir of salvation and entitled to vitally receive every blessing and promise in the Bible. Salvation is “soteria” which means wholeness, deliverance, victories, prosperity, health and welfare.

Say this with me: I AM AN HEIR OF SALVATION! MEANING MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN! IT ALSO MEANS THAT I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY DELIVERED FROM SICKNESS, ADDICTIONS, POVERTY, BONDAGE, SHAME, DISGRACE, REPROACH, ACCUSATIONS AND CONDEMNATION! TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God’ (Romans 12:2 KJV).

God’s word is the foundation for true vital success and fulfillment in every area of your life. It is the road map that helps guide you to your divine destination. The simple truth is, the Bible is your manual for life. Without it, any path you take could very well lead to a dead end.

The Bible is your manual for life. The Bible is still the only book that can be relied upon for truth and instruction concerning life. In it, you will find the solution to every challenge you face. When a person accepts Christ, his life is transformed and the word of God becomes the catalyst for vital change.

The way we think governs the way we live. Until, we allow our hearts and minds to be renewed by God’s word like the opening scripture says, we will never completely fulfill our purpose. We are better able to identify the path that leads to our destination by allowing the word of God shape our thoughts.

Say this with me: THE WORD OF GOD IS BEEN FORMED IN ME RICHLY IN ALL WISDOM! I SPEAK GOD’S WORD! I TEACH GOD’S WORD! I AM A LIVING EPISTLE OF GOD’S GRACE AND MIRACLE WORKING POWER IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. [24] Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them’ (Mark 11:23-24; KJV).

In addition to what the scripture above says, I say to you, No matter what anyone says or what challenges may lie ahead or come your way, make a decision to trust God’s word. Trust the finished works of Christ. Believing and speaking God’s promises is a vital action or step to vitally receiving God’s promises. Stand until you get vitally what you are standing there for.

When you make the gospel (God’s word) your primary focus rather than the situations you face, everything good will vitally fall in place.

When you allow the word of God to guide your thoughts and actions, you will make significant progress in your life vitally and you will never go wrong. Even when you make a mistake or miss the mark, the word of God on the inside of you will guide you back to the right path and enable you to hit the bull’s-eye.

In Genesis, God spoke words and the universe was created. Today, He has given us the same creative power to speak things into existence. Beloved, learn to comply with God’s word through walking by faith, and you will vitally experience the good life God spoke about in Ephesians 2:10 Amp.

Say this with me: I COMPLY WITH GOD’S WORD THROUGH WALKING BY FAITH! I WALK IN THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY, AND I AM EVER CONCIOUS OF WHO I AM VIA THE FINISHED WORKS OF JESUS CHRIST.

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified’ (Acts 20:32; KJV).

The Bible sustains and builds you spiritually just as food sustains and builds you physically. It’s impossible to talk about success and destiny without emphasizing the absolute importance of God’s word and the foundational role it plays in your life.

When you read, speak and listen to God’s word daily, allowing it to saturate your heart, you create a solid foundation for vital success. Every decision you make in life has a direct impact on your future – destination. I encourage you to Stay on God’s word; let it be your vocabulary, let it be the foundation of your life. Remember:

Words produce thoughts.

Thoughts produce emotions.

Emotions produce decisions.

Decisions produce actions.

Actions produce habits.

Habits produce character.

Character produces destiny.

The way you think today is a result of the words that you have heard, said and believed over time. Words are like seeds that produce after their kind. If you plant corn, you will harvest corn. In that same way, scriptures are also seeds; they will vitally produce God’s promise based on the finished works of Christ in your life.

Beloved, see God’s word as a bag of seeds. When the seeds are planted in your heart, you can vitally create the future you desire and fulfill destiny. Many believers ignorantly deny themselves from the good life that has already been reserve and freely given to them by God. My dear, God doesn’t want you to struggle. He wants you to be completely sufficient in everything and lacking nothing.

Say this with me: GOD DOES NOT WANT ME TO STRUGGLE, HE WANTS ME TO BE COMPLETELY SUFFICIENT IN EVERYTHING AND LACKING NOTHING! THE GOOD LIFE HAS ALREADY BEEN RESERVED AND FREELY GIVEN TO ME BY GOD, AND I LIVE IT OUT ABUNDANTLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [b]overflows)’ (John 10:10; AMP).

As God’s child, you are entitled to every benefit and privilege that your relationship with Him allows. The blessings available are endless. God wants you to experience His goodness everyday – life will be a lot more rewarding when you give Jesus and His finished works priority.

Jesus came so that you will have and enjoy Zoe Life, He came so that you will have and enjoy it in abundance, He went to the Cross of Calvary so that you will have and ENJOY this ZOE LIFE to the full, till it overflows. I have a question for you to ponder on, now that you are born again, you have the Zoe life right, good! Can you say you have been enjoying the overflowing effect of this life as described in the above scripture? There’s still a lot more to vitally press into! So much, dear, and we are pressing and manifesting this life much more in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Beloved, God has a Destiny for you! God wants you to vitally live the good life!! God has a prescribed plan for your life, an appointed purpose and destiny! People say things like “what’s meant to be will be” but that just doesn’t line up with scriptures. If what’s meant to be will be, why did you learn how to drive, read, and do other things? You should have not learnt how to do anything at all and see if through osmosis and diffusion everything you know or will know will just drop on you!

Beloved, see God’s word as a bag of seeds. When the seeds are planted in your heart, you can vitally create the future you desire and fulfill destiny. Many believers ignorantly deny themselves from the good life that has already been reserve and freely given to them by God. My dear, God doesn’t want you to struggle.

I encourage you to make the word of God your foundation in life. Spend time reading and meditating on His words as often as possible. Find scriptures (seeds) about the things you desire or want to change, And Plant the seeds in your heart by consistently feeding and speaking them forth. Your mission in life is to choose the path that leads to the destination God has already prepared for you.

Say this with me: JESUS CAME TO GIVE ME ZOE LIFE, HE WANTS ME TO HAVE AND ENJOY IT IN ABUNDANCE, HE WANTS ME TO HAVE AND ENJOY IT TO THE FULL, and TILL IT OVERFLOWS! AS A BELIEVER I HAVE ZOE LIFE! AND AM GOING TO ENJOY IT IN ABUNDANCE, ENJOY IT TO THE FULL, TILL IT OVERFLOWS IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God…But that which fell on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience’ (Luke 8:11, 15; KJV).

Beloved, from the scripture above, the seed is the word of God, while the ground is the heart of men. And those that produced vital results where those who with an honest and good heart (referring to the heart of believers, because believers don’t have stony hearts, stony hearts died with the old man, the new man in Christ was born with a good and honest heart). This one’s having heard the word, kept it, held on to it, and through patience which means staying Power via faith they produced great results. Glory to God!

The heart is the soil that has potential to vitally create great harvest. Words are spiritual containers that carry faith or fear, blessing or cursing. When you speak words, they begin to take shape in the spirit realm. There are basically TWO SYSTEMS OF INFLUENCE (Colossians 1:12-13), namely:

world’s system (fueled by the Devil) and

God’s system (fueled through the administration of the ministry of the Holy Spirit present in the Church).

The Words of God come from God and carry faith, love, life, peace, and blessings. The blessing is an empowerment to prosper or excel. While, the world’s system on the other hand is dominated by words of the kingdom of darkness, ruled by Satan. It produces doubt, fear, poverty, sickness, death and the curse. The curse is an empowerment to fail.

It’s the believer responsibility to study or feed on the word of God, to gain understanding of how to apply it to his life, and plant seeds of God’s word in his heart. Know that, when seeds of God’s word are planted in the soil of your heart, you will be responsive to God and automatically a great harvest will come.

We must remind ourselves that we are on God’s team, and the battle has already been won via the Cross of Jesus. The type of crop you harvest is determined by the type of seeds you sow: either word-seeds from God’s word, or word-seed from the world system.

Say this with me: I AM ON GOD’S TEAM, AND ALL BATTLES HAVE ALREADY BEEN WON VIA THE CROSS OF JESUS. I LIVE IN VICTORY, PROSPERITY, SUCCESS, ABUNDANCE, WEALTH, AND HEALTH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! THE WORD SEEDS PLANTED AND ROOTED IN MY HEART ARE THE WORDS OF GOD’S GRACE AND POWER IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life’ (Proverbs 4:20-23).

The above scripture admonishes us to give full attention and faith based submission to the word of God, the scripture also tell us that we should keep our eyes fixed on God’s word, and keep the word in the center of our hearts. Then the scriptures, tells us the result of this instructions, the results is that it is life, healing and health to those that find them. That is to say, the word in me doesn’t only benefits me, it is also life, healing, health, deliverance, victories and wholeness to those who find or get a hold of the word of God that has been planted in my heart. Glory to God, we are living epistles.

Hearing and seeing words are two ways in which word-seeds can get into your heart, but speaking them is also an important method. God has given you the creative ability to speak things into existence. Whatever you say has the ability to become reality.

Beloved, your heart is programmed to produce what is planted in it, and when you constantly speak God’s word that you don’t believe in, you train yourself in doubt and unbelief, and those words won’t bring forth positive results.

As you become a spiritual farmer of God’s word (daily planting, cultivation and guarding your soil), you will see great results vitally.

Say this with me: I GIVE MY FULL ATTENTION AND FAITH BASED SUBMISSION TO THE WORD OF GOD! MY EYES ARE COMPLETELY FIXED ON THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, AND I KEEP THE WORD OF GOD IN THE CENTRE OF MY HEART! I AM A LIVING EPISTLE, WHEN PEOPLE COME IN CONTACT WITH THE WORD IN ME, THEY VITALLY RECIEVE LIFE, HEALTH, HEALING, PROSPERITY, SUCCESS, DELIVERANCE ANDWHOLENESS IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good [b]success’ (Joshua 1:8).

Meditation means saying and thinking a thing over and over again until it becomes embedded in your heart. The result of meditating on the Word in the Scripture above is that it will make one’s ways vitally Prosperous, and cause the person to deal wisely and have good success.

Beloved, the end goal of meditation in the scripture above is vital Prosperity, ability to deal wisely and having good success. In Acts 20:32; KJV, the word says “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” What meditating in Joshua 1:8 will give you as a vital end goal, that is what commending one to God, and to the Word of His Grace will give and even much more.

The end goals of commending one to God and to the Word of His Grace is that it will build one up and also give the person vital inheritance in Christ Jesus. In this end goal, prosperity, dealing wisely and having good success are in there, beyond that, all that JESUS and His finished works represents are in it! Glory to God!

I am saying is that meditating is the same thing as commending one to the Word of His Grace. If you observe the two scriptures above, you will see that in between the end goals of tangible inheritance is the ability to deal wisely (Joshua 1:8) and the being built up (Acts 20:32). This shows you clearly that what is important in these two scriptures is that God’s word should gain deep roots in your spirit. Let the word of Christ dwell richly in you in all wisdom.

So then, what is meditation or commending one to the word of His Grace? The answer is simply, meditation or commending one to the word of God refers to all the processes through which God’s word gains deep root in a believer’s heart, this could happen through watching or listening to messages over and over, reading books, studying the word of God, receiving prophetic words, muttering the word, pondering and speaking God’s word! It can happen when praying in the Holy Ghost and listening to messages! Or even while sleeping on messages. It happens during Church service and fellowship with brethren etc. The end a goal is that it builds us up and makes us enter vitally into our inheritance in Christ Jesus.

Say this with me: THE WORD OF GOD IS BEEN FORMED IN ME! THE WORD OF GOD DWELLS IN ME RICHLY IN ALL WISDOM IN THE NAME OF JESUS! I AM A WORD AND FIRE BELIEVER! I TEACH GOD’S WORD AND DESMONSTRATES THE TANGIBLE POWER OF THE HOLYGHOST IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith’ (Mark 11:23; KJV).

Beloved, when your heart is full of the word and has no doubt and unbelief, you will be able to easily speak words of faith and create the reality you desire. Jesus words were full of faith and love. ‘Greater works than this shall he do’ (Jn. 14:12), this supernatural ability to do greater works is a result of meditation or feeding on God’s word, believing it and acting on it. And then God’s supernatural ability overtakes your natural ability causing you to perform the supernatural.

God’s word is true! Regardless of what you experience or the challenges you may face around you, hold on to his promises. Keep speaking the words no matter what; assuredly, you will see result.

God takes pleasure in the prosperity of the servants (Psalm 35:27).

If you want vital lasting happiness and satisfaction in your life, employ God’s Word.

When others speak negative words to or about you, refuse to allow them take root in your heart. Overcome negativity by believing what God says about you in His Word.

Facts indicating temporary circumstances are subject to change. God’s word is the truth, and it endures forever.

Changing the way you speak, the word you hear, and the image you see are very important steps to vitally reaching your destiny in life. You will attain God’s perfect plan when you follow his blueprint. Frame your world with God’s word!

Whatever your desire may be, the path to vitally achieving your goals begins with your words.

Utilize the power God has given you to create your future.

Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS! WHAT IT WILL TAKE THE BEST OF MEN 50 YEARS TO ACHIEVE IN FEW YEARS AM ACHIEVING THEM IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 3:18, KJV).

My dear, growth equals change and change comes automatically when you consistently behold the glory of the Lord. The vital evidence that spiritual growth and maturity have taken place in your life is always noticeable. This change can be seen in your action, speech, thought and ways of doing things. It takes making a quality decision to implement change.

My friend, Evaluate your growth, identify areas where you might have become stagnant, and make necessary changes for improvement. Have a life that is strong in prayers, seeking God through His word and fellowship. Continue to grow through His word and through fellowship. Continue to grow in God’s word and in vital experience of His success.

Beloved, according to our opening scripture, we are to behold the Glory of the Lord; “the Glory of the Lord” is with a definite article! That is to say, the glory of the Lord is the same! It’s thick, it’s wide and it is vast. The good news is that as we behold we are changed from glory to glory!

It’s not as though the glory of the Lord is changing or God releases His glory in installments! No! A thousand times No! The truth is that you are already in the glory world as a believer, but as you begin to “kiononia” with what you see in the glory world, your manifestation of this glory begins to change levels! The glory has always been there 100%. It’s your perception and manifesting of it that gets upgraded per time.

AS YOU “KOINONIA” with the picture you see in the glory world, you literally are in a transaction process, which will result in the exchange of your current experiences for that which God, in His glory realm, has programmed for you according to His perfect design for you.

Say this with me: I LIVE IN THE GLORY OF THE LORD, AND I MANIFEST THIS GLORY MUCH MORE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed’ (James 1:22-25 KJV).

Beloved, from the above scripture, a doer of the word is someone that lives his or her live conscious of who he or she is in Christ Jesus.

The one who sees himself as whom he is now – as the New Creation–in the picture of what Christ has done and does not forget what the word says about him, i.e., not being a forgetful hearer and is a doer of what the Word says; this same man is said to have done the word and, as a result, will experience vital blessings in every area of his life. Doing the word literally equals continuing in the perfect law of liberty (which is the Gospel of Christ) and is directly proportional to not being a forgetful hearer. The hallmark of the true doer of the word is that he is always conscious of whom he is in Christ and does not forget what manner of man he is.

2 Peter 1:9 shows us another picture of the one who is not a doer of the word; “But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.” GLORY TO GOD! The blind and shortsighted man is he who is forgetful of the great fact that his sins have been forgiven and removed forever. He is the same who does not do the word, because he has lost sight (does not keep in mind) of what the finished work of Christ has accomplished on his behalf.

This means the believer that has the things mentioned, that is, a doer of the word, is someone that can see: someone that can see afar with deep insight into New Creation Realities; someone that has not forgotten that he or she has been purged from sins; someone that has not forgotten that our sins (past, present and future) have been forgiven; this same fellow is a doer of the word.

My friend, the sum of being a doer is seeing who you are in Christ Jesus, and living your life conscious of this revelation. This will automatically produce actions that line up with God’s word. Actions that line up with God’s word will produce or establish habits that line up with God’s word. Habits that line up with God’s word will produce character (personality) that lines up with God’s word. Together, these will vitally lead you to the victorious destiny God has for you and cause you to vitally prosper in every aspect of your endeavor.

BEING A DOER of the word is keeping in mind what Christ has done for you as well as the result of it, i.e., whom you are today as a direct result of the finished work. This is the lifestyle of the just.

Say this with me: I AM A DOER OF THE WORD! THIS MEANS IT IS NATURAL FOR ME TO DO THE WORD, BECAUSE THE WORD IS IN ME! THE WORD IS MY NATURE! AND MY NATURE IS RIGHTEOUSNESS. THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS IS MY NATURE! GLORY TO GOD!

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: [25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock’ (Matthew 7:24-25, KJV).

Your actions and decisions have the potential to vitally catapult you to destiny vitally. God’s word should weigh more heavily in your life than the opinions and the words of the world’s system. It is vital to be not only the hearer but also the doer of the word, someone who is conscious of who he is in Christ Jesus.

Beloved, your decision to act in love will impact others and even spark up changes in their lives. Abba’s love should be the foundation for everything you do. Vitally position yourself for success and the abundant life by allowing or receiving the fullness of Abba’s love for you.

In order to vitally experience the abundant life, God has designed for you; you must not just be hearer of the word, but also a doer. Your actions will set your course in life, so it’s important that they line up with the consciousness of Christ and His finished works. You might have to leave your comfort zone to act on what you believe, but the result will far outweigh it. Receiving the word and acting on it classifies you as a wise person vitally (Matthew 7:24-27).

TRUE WISDOM SPRINGS from the consciousness and doing of God’s word and to live by it.

Say this with me: ‘I AM A DOER OF THE WORD! THIS MEANS IT IS NATURAL FOR ME TO DO THE WORD, BECAUSE THE WORD IS IN ME! THE WORD IS MY NATURE! AND MY NATURE IS RIGHTEOUSNESS. THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS IS MY NATURE!’ GLORY TO GOD!

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? [2] God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? [14] For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace’ (Romans 6:1-2, 14, KJV).

IS GRACE EVER A LICENSE TO SIN? Does God’s grace give us a license to sin? Scripturally, and obviously, the answer is no. On the contrary, Romans 6:14 tells us that God’s grace is the power over sin.

But, perhaps, you might know of someone who, when confronted about his or her adulterous relationship, simply replies, as if it was a matter of fact, “Well, I’m under grace, so you can’t condemn me.” Or maybe the person has shown no desire to stop a lifestyle of sin and defends their self by saying, “God’s grace covers me.”

Beloved, as with any truth from God, there will be a minority who misunderstand and abuse God’s amazing grace. But how do we address this problem without backing away from God’s grace? What do we say to those who use grace as a license to sin? Are these people truly living under grace in the first place?

My friend, if anyone is living in sin and claims that he or she is living under grace, let me be the first to tell you that this person is not living under grace. How can he or she be when God’s Word clearly states that “sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace” (Rom. 6:14)? Based on the authority of God’s Word, a person who is under grace will not be dominated by or want to continue living in sin.

We are shown in Romans 6:14 that grace is what frees us from the dominion of sin. A revelation of grace will never produce a licentious or liberal lifestyle. On the contrary, it will set one free from all sorts of sinful lifestyles. Time and time again, our ministry has received praise reports after praise reports that have testified to this—real and personal stories of addictions supernaturally and permanently broken to the glory of God.

My friend, you may have come across erroneous interpretations of the gospel of grace that may have put doubts in your heart about hearing and receiving God’s grace. But don’t let these rob you of the treasure of the true gospel that is clearly laid out in God’s Word and of its power to set you free from a cycle of sin and defeat. Keep living the higher life.

GRACE IS THE saving power of God through the gospel which sets a man permanently and completely free from the shackles of sins. The same would not be a license for sin.

Say this with me: I AM UNDER GRACE, THEREFORE, I HAVE VITAL DOMINION OVER SIN. GLORY!

Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’ (Matthew 18:21).

Peter asked the Lord how often he should forgive his brother. The Lord’s answer to him was simple: up to 70 times seven times (Matthew 18:22). In other words, all the time!

My friend, you might say, “Well, Pastor Gee, he does not deserve my forgiveness.”

Neither did you deserve God’s forgiveness as well.

There is not a single person alive or dead who did not break all 10 of God’s commandments. There is no such thing as a “partial sinner” or “great sinner.” All of us were great sinners when Jesus saved us. And when we realize that we were forgiven much, we will love much (Luke 7:47).

My friend, maybe you are thinking, “Pastor Gee, how can you say that I have broken all of God’s commandments? But I have never even committed adultery.”

My friend, Jesus said, “If you lust after a woman in your heart, you have already committed adultery with her” (Matthew 5:28). That is God’s standard. Man looks outward, but God looks inward at the heart. Moreover, if you break one law, you are guilty of all (James 2:10). So everyone has broken all of God’s commandments. Everyone was a great sinner.

Beloved, now, you are no longer a sinner if you have received Christ as your Savior. You are a New Creation. But you were a great sinner and God forgave you your huge debt through the death of His Son.

So if someone has wronged you, tell yourself this: “I did not deserve God’s forgiveness, but He forgave me through Christ. So I forgive this person also.” If you say something like, “He does not deserve it,” it makes no sense. Forgiveness is not for people who deserve it. If they deserve anything, it is punishment. But forgiveness means that you extend grace—undeserved favor—like how God extended undeserved favor to you.

Beloved, if you choose to hold on to bitterness, no one suffers but you. You lose your peace, then possibly your health. It is just not worth it. God says to you, “Let go. Forgive them their debts, just as I have forgiven you yours.”

IT IS EASY TO LET go of offences especially when you can see with how much of unmerited favor God forgave you.

Say this with me: I LET GO OF ALL OFFENCES, HATRED, BITTERNESS AND UNFORGIVENESS! I FORGIVE ALL, JUST AS GOD HAS FORGIVEN ALL MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!

And we have known and believed the love that God has for us…’ (1 John 4:16).

My dear, you may know that God cares about you and loves you, and that He demonstrated His love for you by dying on the cross for you, but do you believe it? It is one thing to know about the love that God has for you, but another thing to actually believe it in your heart.

It is one thing to know that the sun shines on us during the day. But it is yet another to believe that the sun is still shining even though we don’t feel its warmth and all we see are dark clouds. Sometimes we are slow in believing God’s love for us when we go through tough times. But God wants you to know and believe that He loves you even in the midst of the deal falling through, even when that job is slow in coming through, even when the boss is fault-finding or when your child still refuses to come home.

In the midst of the pain, He wants you to know and believe that He is wholly on your side defending and taking care of you. And if God, the most powerful being in the universe, is for you, can anyone or anything come against you successfully?

Beloved, perhaps you feel like you have messed up big time. God wants you to know and believe that though others may be angry with you, He will never be angry with you. Neither will He condemn you. The sum total of His anger against your sins fell upon Jesus at the cross. So He wants you to know and believe that He will never punish you because Jesus was punished in your place.

When you feel unworthy because you have just blown it for the umpteenth time, know and believe that your heavenly Father has eternally offered you the gift of no condemnation.

My friend, know and believe that since He loved you and died for you while you were still a sinner (Romans 5:8) at your worst and ugliest, how much more is His love for you now that you are His beloved child and the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21)!

LET YOUR HEART embrace with every faith in you that God loves dearly and He would never change His mind on loving you, no matter how much you’ve blown it.

Say this with me: I KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT GOD LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY! HE LOVES ME WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS! HE IS FOR ME TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER!

Moreover the law entered that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more’ (Romans 5:20).

My dear, when a top executive is charged for corruption or a church minister is caught in the very act of adultery, you will probably hear the phrase “fallen from grace” being used of them. We have come to believe that when someone falls into sin, he falls from grace.

But God wants us to know that when someone falls into sin, he does not fall from grace—he actually falls into grace! Thank God His grace is there to put the person back on his feet. Glory to God!

Beloved, The Bible tells of prostitutes and corrupt tax collectors—sinners—who fell into God’s grace and got back on their feet. If the sin in their lives could have stopped God’s grace, they would never have been able to receive His grace of healing, help and power to live right.

Now, it is important you understand that God hates sin because it destroys our lives, relationships and bodies. Sin is evil! But sin is not overcome by us talking about it and relying on our willpower to overcome it. It takes God’s grace to destroy sin. In fact, it is when you are under His grace that sin has no dominion over you (Romans 6:14). It is when you see His grace in His providing of His Son to put away your sins and make you eternally righteous that sin will not dominate you.

My friend, the devil might say to you, ‘you think that you can still expect God’s blessings after what you did this morning? That is when you must remind yourself that Christ alone is your perfection and righteousness. Sin does not and cannot stop God’s grace. If His grace can be cut off by sin, Jesus would never have come to save us because we were all terrible sinners. But praise God, “where sin abounded; grace abounded much more!

IT’S HIS GRACE that delivers from sin.

Say this with me: GOD’S GRACE IS BIGGER, DEEPER, WIDER AND MORE POWERFUL THAN ALL THE WORLD’S SINS PUT TOGETHER. AND I HAVE RECIEVED HIS GRACE TO VITALLY WALK IN TOTAL VICTORY OVER ALL WEAKNESSES OR EVIL HABITS IN MY LIFE! GLORY!

He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side; and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.’ (Leviticus 16:14).

Beloved, there were three items in the ark: the golden pot of manna, Aaron’s rod and two stone tablets on which God had written the Ten Commandments. (Hebrews 9:4) These items are actually symbols of man’s rebellion. The golden pot of manna represents man’s rejection of God’s provision. The rod of Aaron represents man’s rejection of God’s leadership and the two stone tablets of God’s commandments represent man’s rejection of His standard of holiness.

But because God delights in mercy, He had these items put away in the ark and covered with the mercy seat, which had two cherubim on it (Hebrews 9:5). And once a year, the high priest would enter the holy of holies where the ark was and sprinkle the blood of the animal sacrifice on the mercy seat. This means that God’s eyes, as represented by the eyes of the cherubim, do not see the symbols of man’s rebellion. As long as the blood was there on the mercy seat, He saw only the blood and accepted the people.

Today, Jesus is our High Priest and He Himself has sprinkled His own blood on the true mercy seat in heaven—the throne of grace (Hebrews 9:23–26). Interestingly, the number of times that the Old Testament high priest had to sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat was seven times. Seven times here, speaks of Jesus’ perfect sacrifice. And because His sacrifice is perfect and He is perfect, we who are in Christ have perfect standing forever before God! Glory to God!

My friend, whenever you pray to God, don’t worry about falling short of His standard of holiness. He does not see your sins (Hebrews 8:12, 10:17). He sees His Son’s blood on the mercy seat. You have perfect standing before Him forever!

GOD’S EYES DO not see your faults. He sees the blood of Christ. He delights in mercy and not judgment.

Say this with me: BY ONE SACRIFICE, I HAVE BEEN PERFECTED FOREVER! BY THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS, I HAVE RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD FOREVER!”

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit’ (Jude 1:20).

My dear, praying in the Holy Ghost is the primary way a believer should pray, one of the benefits of praying in the Holy Ghost is given in our opening scripture -it will build you up in your most holy faith. Most holy faith can be referred to as pure faith, it's the highest level of faith you are functioning in based on your level of growth or revelation in the Gospel of Christ. This means that praying in the Holy Ghost will make you function at this highest level. Glory to God!

The Amplified version of this scripture says, “but you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [[d]make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit;” Glory! This says you should build up yourself in your most holy faith, make progress, and rise up like an edifice. How? By Praying in the Holy Ghost!

Maybe you have a burden in your heart about someone or something, pray in the Holy Ghost about it. And as you pray in the Spirit, you will feel like there is a prayer going on within you. Flow with it until you feel a release. You will feel peace, the burden lifting and a following note of victory inside you. The Holy Spirit will assure you that everything is going to be all right or He will prompt you to do something. Then, you will find that what has been hindering you from receiving your vital newer levels has been removed, and in its place is the answer you need! Halleluiah!

GOD’S PRIMARY DESIGN for you in prayer is to pray in the Holy Ghost (in other tongues).

Say this with me: I BUILD UP MYSELF, I FUNCTION ON MY MOST HOLY FAITH, I MAKE PROGRESS VITALLY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AS I PRAY IN THE HOLYGHOST.AND THAT IS THE PRIMARY WAY I PRAY. GLORY TO GOD!

But the father said to his servants, ‘bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet’ (Luke 15:22).

If you are a believer, you are probably familiar with the touching story of the son that Jesus shared in our opening scripture. Who do you think the father in the story represents, Jesus’ Father in heaven? Of course – Jesus was giving us a picture of His Father, who is also our Father.

In the story, the father was depicted as one running toward his son, whom was returning home (Luke 15:20). Do you realize that God is never described as being in a hurry in the Bible? He is always cool and composed. The only time He is probably portrayed as being in a hurry is in this story. Though improper in Jewish custom, the father held up his robe and ran. Where was he running to? Why was he in such a hurry?

The father was in a hurry because he had seen his son, who was still a long way from home. He was running toward his son as he could not wait to embrace and kiss his child again.

The father was in a hurry to clothe his son with the best robe. My friend, our Father has put the best robe—the robe of righteousness—on us. In doing so, He has reinstated us as sons of the Most High God, a position which we had lost when Adam fell.

Beloved, the father was in a hurry to put a ring on his son’s finger. Like the authority that is invested in the signet ring of a rich man’s son, our Father is eager to put back into our hands the authority to invoke His name, so that we can vitally walk in dominion every day.

The father was in a hurry to put sandals on his son’s feet to assure him that he was still his son — only servants went about barefooted. Our Father never wants us to feel like hired servants or outcasts. We are always His sons. Glory to God!

Beloved, if the Father appears to be in a hurry, it is only because He is in a hurry to assure you of your position as His precious child!

ABBA FATHER RUNS out for your sake, to save and restore you, not to chase you out as a dog.

Say this with me: I KNOW WHO I AM! I AM MY FATHER’S SON! YAWEH GOD IS MY ETERNAL LOVING DADDY! I AM HIS SON IN WHOM HE IS WELL PLEASED.

Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin’ (Romans 4:6-8).

Beloved, you are blessed today because all your sins have been forgiven in Christ. God does not count your sins against you. Instead, He counts you as the righteous one in Christ. That is why you are the blessed man to whom the Lord does not and will not impute sin!

What happens to such a man, a man that God does not impute sin? Let’s look at the story of Jacob to find out.

The Bible records how Jacob had deceived his father and cheated his elder brother Esau of his firstborn blessing (birthright: Genesis 27:1- 41). Yet, in spite of his sin of deception or supplantation, God chose to speak to Jacob. And no, God did not say to this cheat, “you terrible sinner! How can you deceive your own father? You are hereby cursed!”

No! To deceitful Jacob, God said, “I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants… Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you” (Genesis 28:13–15). Remarkable! Here was a man to whom God did not impute sin! Glory to God!

God did not rebuke Jacob at all. Instead, we hear Him promising to Jacob, “I will give to you… I am with you… I will keep you… I will bring you back… I will not leave you…” Jacob certainly did not deserve these blessings. This is one man who walked in the truth of Romans 4:8 — “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin”! Now, I am not encouraging you to sin, but I want you to see the love and grace of God toward us.

If Jacob was so blessed, how much more you and I today, who are under the new covenant of grace established by the blood of Jesus. How much more is our blessedness because Jesus has removed all our sins at the cross!

Beloved, because of Jesus’ finished work, God does not impute sin to you. What He does impute to you is righteousness apart from works. (Romans 4:6) And because you are righteous, get ready for His vital blessings (Proverbs 10:6)!

AS THERIGHTEOUSNESS of God in Christ Jesus, you are also the blessed in Christ, for blessings always rest on the head of the righteous (Proverbs 10:6).

Say this with me: I AM RIGHTEOUS APART FROM MY WORKS OR MY PERFORMANCES! AND BECAUSE I AM RIGHTEOUS, I AM BLESSED WITH ALL BLESSINGS IN CHRIST JESUS! AND I ENJOY THE GOOD LIFE VITALLY!

That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus’ (Ephesians 2:7).

My dear, Have you ever blown things out of proportion and gotten angry with God when you were going through a trying time? This happened to Jesus’ disciples when a storm hit them hard. In their fear of drowning, they cried out to Jesus, who was getting some much-needed sleep in the boat, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38).

For accusing Him of not caring, you would think that they would receive a rebuke from Jesus. But it was the wind which received His rebuke, and a great calm followed (Mark 4:39). Because of His tenderness toward His own, Jesus did not waste time taking offence. Instead, He “wasted” time taking care of the problem that had caused His disciples so much anxiety and fear.

This also happened to two sisters, Martha and Mary, who did not hesitate to let Jesus know how they felt when He finally showed up days after their brother Lazarus had died. Both sisters made the same remark to Him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died” (John 11:21, 32).

Both sisters had seen Jesus’ miracles of mercy and love. Now, in their grief, they focused on how He could have prevented their brother’s death, but did not. They did not know His heart—how tender it was toward them and how He would never fail to help them, but would even extend to raising their dead brother (John 11:41–44).

Beloved, your heavenly Father sees your endeavors to stay afloat when you are in the midst of a storm. He sees you trying to provide for yourself and your family, and thinking, “If I don’t take care of these things, no one else will!” And He wants you to know how tender His heart is toward you, how He is not offended by all the bad things you have ever said of or to Him. He wants you to know how much He wants to and will help and bless you. So let go and experience afresh the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward you!

GOD’S AMAZING GOODNESS is tender towards you and He will never fail to help you, no not ever!

Say this with me: GOD’S HEART IS TENDER TOWARDS ME!

He shall skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces’ (Leviticus 1:6).

My dear, do you know who first clothed man with coats of skin? It was God Almighty Himself, when He found Adam and Eve hiding behind the bushes because they had been afraid of Him. They had become fearful and conscious in that they had sinned against God. In their sin-consciousness, they had realized that they had been naked and that the glory of God, which had been their covering, had gone.

So God killed an animal to clothe Adam and Eve with coats of skin (Genesis 3:21). An animal had to die and its bloodied skin became their covering. This speaks of the blood of Jesus that covered you when He became your burnt offering. The Lamb of God did not just take away your sins; He also gave you His righteousness in place of the sin.

Beloved, you are covered with Jesus’ blood. You are righteous by His blood. God has clothed you with the robe of righteousness, which was paid for by Jesus’ blood. I am not talking about a physical robe made of cloth. I am talking about the robe of righteousness that was on Jesus when He said to the storm, “peace, be still!” and there came a perfect calm (Matthew 8:23–27), when healing flowed from Him to the sick and when He raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11:38–44).

When you believe that you are righteous because of Jesus’ blood, you will see the effects of wearing His robe of righteousness. You will see miracles happening before your very eyes. You become a blessing magnet, a favor or grace magnet. It is not your own righteousness, but the righteousness of Jesus which you have put on, that is attracting all these blessings of God into your life.

My friend, have the consciousness of being clothed with Jesus’ robe of righteousness. Every day, come to God and say, “Father, I thank You that Jesus is my burnt offering. He covers me head to toe with His righteousness. What He is to You, I am also. As He is now, so am I. I am in Him.” And you will see the vital manifestations of the blessings of health, wholeness, protection and prosperity that the robe attracts!

WHEN YOU BELIEVE that you are righteous because of Jesus’ blood, you will begin to see the vitally effects – of miracles, favors, blessings and wholeness – of wearing His robe of righteousness.

Say this with me: AS A BELIEVER, I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY CLOTHED WITH JESUSROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. I AM A BLESSING MAGNET! I AM A FAVOUR AND GRACE MAGNET!

Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, “Their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they’ (1 Kings 20:23).

In 1 Kings 20, we find the Syrians being defeated by the Israelites. Then, some of the Syrian king’s advisory gave the king what they thought was the reason for their defeat. They said that they had fought on the hills and lost because Israel’s God was the God of the hills. So if they were to fight the Israelites on the plains or in the valleys, they surely would win.

What an irrelevant advice! They thought that the God of Israel only helped His people up on the hills and mountains, and not down in the valleys.

Now, mountains refer to our good times, and valleys, our bad times. Some people have this idea that God is the God of our good times, but He is not there when we are going through bad times. They think that He leaves us helpless in the valleys, especially when the troubles are of our own making.

My friend, I want you to know that our God is the God of the mountains, but He is also the God of the valleys.

God the Son laid aside His crown of glory, His royal majesty and came down for us, stepping into a human body as a baby. He came down to where we were for the sole purpose of dying on the cross for our sins, so that He could bring us up to what God the Father had for us at His right hand. Jesus came down to crown us with glory and honor, to clothe us with robes of righteousness and make us His bride, sharing everything that He has with us; which is the grace of God. He came down to our valley in order to lift up us to the mountain of God’s right hand. GLORY TO GOD!

So whatever you might be going through right now, know that God is right there in your valley with you. He is holding you in His arms and carrying you through the valley. Victory is already yours. Just as the Israelites were also victorious in the valley (1 Kings 20:28–29), so will you vitally be because the God of the valleys is right there with you! And in Christ Jesus, He has already turned all your valleys into a mountain top experience.

YAHWEH IS VITALLY turning your entire valleys and miseries into mountain-top experiences.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ’ (Romans 5:1).

Beloved, we are not trying to get peace with God. We already have peace with God, in that we have been justified by faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This peace with God brings us the peace of God, which guards our hearts and minds (Philippians 4:7). Then, the peace of God inside us will also translate into the peace of God outside us — in all our outward circumstances.

Firstly, we will find that what would normally cause us much care and anxiety will no longer be the case. Secondly, not only will everything turn out well, but we will also be blessed in more ways than the usual one. This is what happens when Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is our peace.

Beloved, because Jesus is your peace, you are blessed in more ways than one; your soul will truly prosper; your health will vitally prosper; your finances will vitally prosper; your loved ones will be vitally taken care of; your relationships will flourish; you will enjoy the favor of God, all because you have the Prince of Peace!

THE SECRET TO walking in the total peace of God is in first knowing that we have been justified through the blood of Jesus, and then this inner peace flows out to our circumstances to create tangible changes.

Say this with me: BECAUSE I HAVE THE PRINCE OF PEACE, I AM BLESSED IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. MY SOUL IS VITALLY PROSPERING! MY HEALTH IS VITALLY PROSPERING! MY FINANCE IS VITALLY PROSPERING! MY LOVED ONES ARE BEING TAKEN CARE OF! AND MY RELATIONSHIP IS FLOURISHING IN JESUSNAME!” AMEN!

‘… I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly’ (John 10:10).

My dear, though Jesus was completely God, He was born completely human. He went through temptation after temptation and conquered every one of them (Hebrews 4:15). And all that overcoming power is found in His life. And He put that life in you — the life of Christ is in you!

During Jesus’ ministry on earth, He conquered sickness, the winds and waves, the powers of darkness and death. It is His life that brings victory over the devil and all his works. And He put that life in you — the life of Christ is in you!

Finally, Jesus went to the cross, and that life in Him put an end to everything that was natural of the Adamic race — sickness, poverty, failures, pains, curses and death. All that was natural ceased to be in that life of His. But all that was supernatural remained in Him. And He put that life in you — the life of Christ is in you!

Then, Jesus rose from the dead. And to that life of His was added the power of resurrection. And He put that life in you — the life of Christ with the power of His resurrection is in you!

After His resurrection, Jesus went back to heaven to His Father. Today, He is seated at the right hand of God, resting in His finished work, occupying a place of the highest authority. And He put that life in you — the life of Christ is in you!

And because Jesus went back to the Father, the Holy Spirit came to indwell in you (John 16:7), so that you will live life with His anointing in you and walk in His overcoming power.

All that Jesus is, God meant for you to be. All that He has, God meant for you to have. All the exciting things that you read in the Bible about Jesus, all the treasures of Him hidden in the Old Testament and the unsearchable riches in Him revealed in the New Testament, all of that life of His, is not out there somewhere. God has deposited all of it in you, so that you can live the abundant life that Jesus came to give you.

WHAT YOU HAVE today in Christ Jesus is the full load of His life alongside all the thrills and realities of His resurrection, His ascension, His enthronement and glorification – you have the life of Jesus Christ!

Say this with me: THE LIFE OF JESUS IS IN ME! THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST + THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION ARE ALL IN ME!

And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you’ (Ephesians 4:32).

People like to say, “I can forgive, but I cannot forget.” Have you heard that before? Now, in the first place, nowhere in the Bible does God tell you to forgive and then to forget. It is not in the Bible! The devil is adding something here to make the whole thing become burdensome.

Beloved, God only tells us to forgive because God in Christ has forgiven us a debt we cannot pay. When we do this, we do ourselves a favor because harboring bitterness and unforgiveness can sometimes destroy our health.

So, just forgive and let God take care of the rest. When you really forgive, sometimes, He makes you forget. But sometimes, you still remember the incidence because it was a major thing in your life. Yet, when you look back at it, the pain is no more there. The sting is gone and you are not bitter. Glory to God!

My dear, in the Book of Genesis, Joseph had forgiven his brothers before they came and bowed before him. He remembered what they did to him, but he did not remember it with bitterness (Genesis 50:15-21). So you may remember the incident, but the bitterness is gone because you have put the cross in the picture.

You can say thus while praying, “God in Christ forgave me! Daddy, I forgive you! Mama, I forgive you! My cousin, I forgive you!”

When you forgive, forgive by faith, not by your feelings. We walk by faith, not feelings (2 Corinthians 5:7). Some people are waiting for feelings — “I am waiting, Father, for the right emotion to come on me in order to forgive that person.” That “right emotion” doesn’t always come!

Beloved, forgive by faith, and do it once and for all. Spend time in prayer. Take out your diary and write it down: “Father, I bring this person before you. You know what he did to me. Father, as You forgave me through Jesus’ cross, even though I did not deserve it, by faith, I now forgive this person and I let my anger against him go in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

Once you forgive by faith, you will see the sting of bitterness removed from your heart. You will experience the peace and joy of God filling your mind, and see a greater measure of wholeness in your body!

FORGIVE BY FAITH and let God take care of the rest!

Say this with me: I FORGIVE!

‘…to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved’ (Ephesians 1:6).

Beloved, at the Jordan River, Jesus heard His Father say to Him, “You are my beloved son; in you I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22). Later (probably the same week or month), in the wilderness, Jesus heard the Devil say to Him, “If you are the son of God…” (Luke 4:3).

Did you observe that the Devil removed the word “beloved” from what the Father said to Jesus at the Jordan River? This shows us the all-important role of knowing yourself as the beloved of the Father. Jesus obviously was secured and confident of the Father’s love for Him, thus, he overcame the Devil and his temptations at the wilderness. That teaches us that the base for vital dominion over temptations and satanic obstacles is a consciousness of the depths, widths, heights and lengths of Abba’s love for you.

You might say “Pastor Gee, but this is just a one case scenario?”

In Genesis one, there are about eleven occurrences of the phrase “God said.” GOD there is the Hebrew “Elohim.” It means the Supreme Creator. However, in Genesis two, which is the chapter man came fully on the creation scene; GOD changes to LORD God, which is Yahweh Elohim in Hebrew. Yahweh is the One who went into a covenant relationship on behalf of man, the one that seeks deep relationship with man. The name Yahweh brings the sense of Abba’s unconditional love to man. It was Yahweh God (LORD God) that came to fellowship with man in the cool of the day.

It was Yahweh God (LORD God) that told Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and of evil (Genesis 2:15-17; KJV), “And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. [16] And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: [17] But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

So, the name Elohim reveals God as Creator, while Yahweh, on the other hand, reveals Him as the Covenant Loving Redeemer, who loves man unconditionally, and goes into an eternal Covenant of Grace on man’s behalf. Therefore, Elohim brings God into a relationship with His general creation, while Yahweh is the name that brings God into a relationship with man.

But in Genesis three, while the Devil tempted them, he did not go by the name Yahweh; instead he said “hath Elohim (the Supreme Creator) said…” (Genesis 3:1; KJV) – “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God (Yahweh God) *had made. AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEA,_ [[HATH GOD (Elohim) SAID, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”*]_]

It’s the same old little trick, right? Just the same he separates beloved from son, in Jesus’ day, is exactly the same way he doesn’t say Yahweh in the Garden. He simply won’t give you the chance of knowing or being conscious of the Father’s great love for you. Though, he succeeded in getting his way at the garden, but he failed woefully with Jesus. That’s because Jesus did not lose sight of God’s love for Him.

Feed on the depths, widths, heights and lengths of Abba’s love for you! Feed on the Gospel of Christ! Let the word of Christ be rooted in you, let it dwell in you richly in ALL wisdom. And the result will be vital dominion over all temptations.

THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD’S LOVE for us is the greatest shield against Satan’s fiery temptations.

Say this with me: MY SINS HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY REMOVED! THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS TOOK AWAY MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE! MY SINS HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY REMOVED, BECAUSE ABBA LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY! HE LOVES ME WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS! GLORY TO GOD!

‘…He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them’ (Hebrews 7:25).

The verse says that Jesus always lives to make intercession for us. Once, I used to think that this meant that Jesus is seated at the Father’s right hand today, praying all the time for us, waiting and hoping that the Father will do something for us.

But, that is not particularly true. Look at what Jesus prayed when He stood before Lazarus’ tomb. He declared, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me” (John 11:41). He prayed these words even before Lazarus came forth from his tomb alive. Jesus knew that whatever He says comes to pass, because the Father always hears Him (John 11:42).

If God heard what He said four days before Lazarus died, then God also heard what Jesus prayed in John 17 over His disciples and those that should believe in Him thousands of years down the line. And all the promises of God in Christ Jesus are Yea, and Amen. Glory to God! This is a form of His intercession today. What He prayed thousands of years ago, is manifesting and will continue to manifest in our lives, and in the lives of those that will believe in Him years down the line. He doesn’t need to keep repeating the same prayer time and again for God to hear Him.

Another form of Jesus’ intercession for us is mirrored in the Priestly Ministry of Jesus our High Priest (Hebrews 4:14). We get a picture of what happens in prayer when we understand what the high priest in the Old Testament did with the burnt offering of a bird (Leviticus 1:14 -17).

The birds brought to the high priest are a picture of our prayers which flies to the Lord Jesus, because we pray to the Father in Jesus’ name. Now, just as the high priest removes the bird’s feathers after killing it, Jesus removes all that is superfluous and unclean from our prayers, such as unbelief and self-centeredness.

Then, just as the high priest offers the bird as a burnt sacrifice, a sweet aroma to the Lord, Jesus our High Priest adds His perfection, beauty, excellence and fragrance, which the Father so delights in, to our prayers. That is how He presents our prayers to the Father. That is how He lives to make intercession for you in this case. Glory to God!

Beloved, the intercession also happens again when you pray in the Holy Ghost! I remember as a young boy, I was sick and tired of life, I felt like dying, I knew full well that if I did, I would go to heaven my true home! So I wanted to talk to God about it in tongues, and when I did, I knew what I said in tongues was different from what was in my mind. Guess what? I was healed. Glory to God! And I have been in divine health for many years now.

You don’t have to run to a church leader to get him to pray “more powerfully” for you. You can pray yourself. Take advantage of Jesus’ intercession for you and pray in the Holy Ghost. For he that speaks or prays in the Holy Ghost gives thanks or prays the right way and more effectively. Finally another form of intercession that we see in scriptures is that the blood of JESUS keeps on keeping on speaking good things over you and me. Halleluiah!

Say this with me: THE BLOOD OF JESUS KEEPS ON KEEPING ON SPEAKING GOOD THINGS OVER ALL THAT CONCERNS ME AND MY FAMILY.

To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved’ (Ephesians 1:6).

Beloved, at the Jordan River, Jesus heard His Father say to Him, “You are my beloved son; in you I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22). Later, in the wilderness, Jesus heard the Devil say to Him, “If you are the son of God…” (Luke 4:3).

Notice that the devil not only questioned Jesus’ sonship, but he also dropped the word beloved when he said to Jesus, “If you are the Son of God…” Now, the Devil cannot remind you that you are God’s beloved, because when you know this truth, whatever he wants to bring against you will not succeed!

Many girls are giving away their virginity because they need to feel wanted and loved. And young boys join gangs to feel accepted when they think that they have been rejected and made to feel worthless by others.

But when you know that you are God’s beloved, no temptation can succeed against you, not even the “giants” who may taunt you. Consider David who slew Goliath. David in Hebrew means “beloved”. It takes a David to knock down a giant. In other words, it takes someone who knows and believes that he is God’s beloved to vitally win the fights of life!

You are God’s beloved not because of what you do, Christ did everything and He is God’s Beloved. But God put you in Christ. That is why you are “accepted in (Him, Jesus) the Beloved.” And what God said to Jesus, He says to you today: “You are my beloved son. In you, I am well pleased.” Glory!

So if the Devil goes like, “Hey, dare you call yourself ‘God’s beloved’ after what you just did?” Still have the assurance that it is not based on what you have done that you have been accepted, but what Christ has done. And you are God’s beloved because you are in Christ!

When you say that, the Devil screams in frustration, because he has no power over you when you are conscious that you are God’s beloved. There is truly a place of vital safety and rest when you know and believe that you are His beloved.

We are not being proud when we call ourselves God’s beloved. Or else, how could we boast when we know that it is God’s grace, and it alone, that has made us accepted in the Beloved?

Say this with me: I AM GOD’S BELOVED, IN WHOM HE IS WELL PLEASED.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 3:18).

When you look in a mirror, what do you see? Of course, you see yourself. But God does not want you to see yourself in the natural. You may be sick, weak, broke and depressed, yet God wants you to see yourself the way He sees you—healed, strong, rich and whole because Christ is in you (Colossians 1:27).

God wants you to behold as in a mirror the glory of His Son who is in you by His Spirit. As you do this, His Word says that you are being vitally transformed from glory to glory—from poor to rich, sick to healed, loser to winner!

The world may say to you, “It couldn’t be that easy. You couldn’t be transformed just by beholding the glory of Jesus! No, you must do something about you. If you don’t put in some real good effort, nothing will happen. If you don’t start making changes, nothing will change. You’ve got to just move for things to move!”

But the world will never understand that as you are beholding the glory of the Lord, who is the successful one in you, you are being vitally transformed from a failure to a success. And this is not accomplished by any effort of yours to get ahead in life, but by the Spirit of the Lord (Zechariah 4:6)!

As you behold the glory of the Lord, who is the healthy one in your sick body, you are transformed from sickness to health. And this is not accomplished by any effort of yours to keep fit and eat well, but by the Spirit of the Lord!

What could have been easier than beholding the beauty of the Son? So stop focusing on yourself and your efforts. Look away from these things and begin to behold the glory of Jesus who is in you right now, and you will vitally begin to experience the miracles that you need!

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME!

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. [13] These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God’ (1 John 5:12-13).

Beloved, in Christ you already have Zoe life in you; you got eternal life in you already. Glory to God! Manifesting this Zoe life includes experiencing revival and resurrection in barren or dead areas of your life. Manifesting Eternal life is what you need do when you see signs of death in your circumstances.

Is your marriage failing? Have your dreams been crushed or put on the back burner? Are your finances dissolving in a sea of debt?

If there is death operating in any area of your life, don’t despair and don’t lose hope!

See Jesus in the Word through faith,

Vitally manifest the Supply of His life in you.

“So Pastor Gee, how do I zoom in on Jesus to see Him in the Word, and vitally manifest the supply of His life in me?”

Well, that is a good question!

When I say “see Jesus,” I don’t mean seeing Him physically in person. I mean seeing His glory—His goodness, His grace and His love towards you—as you read about Him in the Word.

Reading the Bible is such an exciting adventure! You will be so blessed when you see Jesus in the Word, have a personal encounter with Him, and have His life vitally flow from inside you!

Dearly beloved, it’s my heartfelt desire that you read the Bible with fresh eyes. God’s Word is not just any book; it is His precious love letter to you! In every book, chapter and page, as you see Jesus and what He has accomplished for you through His sacrifice on the Cross, you will also realize how passionately God the Father loves you.

So get into God’s Word today, and rest under the waterfall of His love and grace. And through faith manifest His abundant life that is in you! Let Zoe life flow from to impact the world for Jesus.

Remember, God loves you intensely. He speaks to you, not because you have earned it, but simply because it is His good pleasure to vitally bless you.

Say this with me: I HAVE ZOE AND VAST DEPOSITS OF HIDDEN TREASURES IN ME! AND THIS ETERNAL LIFE I HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS IS MANIFESTING IN A GREATER MEASURE ALL AROUND ME, CAUSING ME TO VITALLY ENTER INTO GREATER DIMENSIONS OF WEALTH AND GLORY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours’ (Luke 15:31).

After running a few errands for his parents, a little boy went to his father and said, “I know why you and mummy had me.” “Why?” asked his father. “So that you guys would have someone to run errands for you!” exclaimed the boy.

Like the little boy, do you see God as a Father who demands obedience and service from you? Have you ever felt that unless you obey Him and keep all His commandments, you don’t have a right to be blessed by Him?

Jesus shared the story of these two sons to show how some of us call God “Father” and yet don’t know His heart. There were two sons in this parable. We know what happened to the son that left home, but we can also learn something about the older son. This is what he said to his father when he discovered that his father had thrown a party to celebrate the return of his irresponsible, spendthrift brother: “Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends” (Luke 15:29).

Now, this son believed that his father had brought him into the world to serve him. He saw his father as someone issuing commandments to him all the time. And he saw himself as someone who had to obey those commandments in order to enjoy his inheritance. But the truth is that the father had already given him his inheritance (Luke 15:12). The father even reminded him lovingly: “Son… all that I have is yours.” And I am sure that that inheritance included more than one goat!

Have you, like the older son, failed to understand your Father’s heart? Your heavenly Father already gave you a rich inheritance in Christ when you became His son. He wants you to know that you have received the Spirit of sonship. (Romans 8:15). So feel free to call out to Him, “Abba, Father!” and know how much He loves you. Because you are His heir, all that He has is yours to enjoy today! Glory to God!

Say this with me: ALL ABBA FATHER HAS BELONGS TO ME HIS CHILD! I DON’T NEED TO WORK FOR WHAT HE HAS FREELY GIVEN ME, WHEN HE GAVE JESUS ON THE CROSS FOR ME! I AM MY FATHER’S CHILD IN WHOM HE IS WELL PLEASED! ALL GOOD THINGS ARE MINE, OF THINGS PRESENT, OF THINGS TO COME; THEY ARE ALL MINE! GLORY!

‘…Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more’ (Hebrews 10:17).

When I was a young Christian growing up in Nigeria, we were taught in church that when you get to heaven, God will replay your entire life, including all your sins, on a huge video screen for all the angels and other saints to watch!

The idea that God was making such a video of believers’ lives, with the intention of screening it for everyone to watch, made some people feel awful and condemned before God.

Beloved, the Bible says: “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin” (Romans 4:8). Hallelujah! Jump for joy! God was and is not counting your sins against you, and that He has given you something called “non-imputability of sins!”

The reason God does not impute any of our sins to us is that He has already imputed all of them to the body of His Son Jesus when He hung on the Cross more than 2,000 years ago. Not only that, when God punished His Son for our sins, He caused the curse of the Law to fall stroke by stroke upon Jesus’ entire body until every curses had been fully satisfied.

We are not under Law, but under Grace. If you are not under Law, you can’t be under the curse of the Law. Glory to God! That is why, instead of imputing sin to us, God imputes righteousness!

God wants us to know that our sins and lawless deeds He remembers no more. The words “no more,” in the original Greek text, were expressed in a strong double-negative emphatic case, it was a complete negation. In other words, God is saying, “No way, can by no means, will I ever remember your sins again!”

Beloved, since God says that He will remember your sins no more, why do you still remember them? Or for that matter, your spouse’s or neighbor’s sins? God does not want you to be conscious of sins because He is not. So rejoice! Fellowship with Him boldly and expect Him to vitally show you mercy and grace because He remembers your sins no more!

Say this with me: MY SINS HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY REMOVED! THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS TOOK AWAY MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE! MY SINS HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY REMOVED, BECAUSE ABBA LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY! HE LOVES ME WITHOUT CONSTRAINTS! GLORY TO GOD!

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?’ (Matthew 6:26).

Perched on a tree branch, two birds were observing passers-by rushing from one place to another. Looking at their faces, one bird asked the other, “Why is man so full of worries and cares?” The other bird answered, “Maybe they don’t have a heavenly Father like we do.”

I believe that the Lord made birds to tell us that we are of more value than many birds put together. In Matthew 10:29, Jesus said, “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin?” Then, in Luke 12:6, He said, “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins?” If you do the math, you will realize that these sparrows are so cheap that you can buy four of them for two copper coins, and you get one thrown in for free!

Sparrows are common creatures in Israel. Yet, not even one of these cheap birds falls to the ground without the Father’s knowledge (Matthew 10:29). Not one of them is forgotten before Him (Luke 12:6). So will He forget you who are of more value than all these birds put together?

Jesus said, “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.” And if your heavenly Father feeds the birds of the air, how much more will He feed you, His precious, beloved child?

Why don’t I see the supply then?” you may ask.

The answer is worry. That is why Jesus also said, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’… For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things” (Matthew 6:31-32). Stop worrying and start believing!

Beloved, if your heavenly Father cares for cheap, common birds, and feeds them every day, how much more will He care for you, His dear, precious child? Let your heart be at rest as you hear Him say to you, “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows” (Matthew 10:31).

…But the very hairs of your head are all numbered’ (Matthew 10:30).

As much as I love my beautiful wife Pastor Eden, I have never bothered to count the number of hairs on her head. I don’t have the time to do so and I doubt I will ever want to. Oh dear! It won’t be easy.

Every day, strands of hair get to drop from your head. Yet, God knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to you, He always has time for every little thing about you.

So when Jesus said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you—your body, family, finances, relationships… everything in your life!

He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how in a nasty way your boss treats you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for a miracle baby.

Your heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it, even if it is about your pet, just like a sister in Christ found out. She panicked when she first discovered that her pet terrapin had gone blind. Then, remembering a message on confessing healing for our bodies, she did the same for her pet! Three months later, the terrapin’s eyes were wide open and able to see! Glory to God!

God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you!

Say this with me: SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING THROUGH ME! IT IS MY SEASON OF MIGHTY EXPLOSION IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin’ (Romans 4:7-8).

Some people think that if they were more “right” with God, then He would hear their prayers. For example, they sometimes believe that if they had not quarreled with their wives or had not had those bad thoughts earlier in the day, then God would answer their prayers.

God is not like that. He wants you to know beyond any doubt that you can always fellowship with Him with boldness and have every confidence that you will vitally experience the manifestation of His mercy and grace in your life. You see, because of Jesus’ finished works on the Cross, you are already right with God. You don’t need to do anything to make yourself more right with God.

In fact, by faith in Jesus, you have received the righteousness of God Himself (2 Corinthians 5:21)! And no matter how many mistakes you make, you will never lose that righteousness, because in the first place, God gave it to you apart from your works (Romans 4:5–6). In other words, God did not impute righteousness to you because you were good, but because you believed in Jesus.

Because of what Jesus has done for you at the cross, all your sins—past, present and future — are forgiven and forever removed. God will by no means ever remember your sins or count them against you (Hebrews 8:12; 10:17).

Because Jesus has been punished for your sins, today, God is not counting your sins against you. This means that your sins won’t stop Him from hearing and responding to your prayers. So you can always fellowship with Him knowing that you can boldly stand in and enjoy His presence and His love. Halleluiah!

When you know and believe this truth, it is going to set you free in your relationship with God. You can talk to Him without fear or any sense of condemnation. You can always fellowship with Him and trust that He always hears you. Should something happen at home or at work, you don’t always have to call for your church leaders—you pray and God hears you!

Beloved, you are righteous in Christ and God hears your prayers—all because of Jesus!

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people…’ (1 Peter 2:9).

God calls us “a royal priesthood.” This means that we are a dynasty of kings and priests under the kingly priesthood of Jesus Christ. This has never happened before in the history of God’s people. In the Old Testament, kings and priests were two distinct groups of people. You were either a king or priest, but not both at the same time.

Today, because we are in Christ, we are king-priests—a royal priesthood. This means that we have a double portion of speaking power because as kings, “Where the word of a king is, there is power” (Ecclesiastes 8:4), and as priests, “by their word every controversy and every assault shall be settled” (Deuteronomy 21:5). Glory to God!

So if you are a Christian businessperson, you will have an edge over worldly businesspeople. What you say about your business deals will come to pass. And if you are falsely accused, know that by your very word, every controversy and every assault will be settled!

And as a king-priest parent, when you bless your children, your words have the power to set in motion supernatural events which will vitally bring them into God’s prosperous abundance and super-abounding grace. And there will vitally be such a courage and resilience about them that it will empower them to vitally win the fights of life!

When the devil comes to you and says that you will die young, because your father and grandfather died young, or that you will never be successful, because you are not well-educated, you must remember that the devil is neither a king nor a priest. There is no power in his words. But there is power in yours, because you are a king-priest in Christ! Halleluiah!

So instead of agreeing with him, believe and declare, “I will not die young. With long life He has satisfied me and shown me His salvation!” Say, “The Lord will make my way vitally prosperous and give me good success!” Use your double portion of speaking power and see these blessings vitally come to pass!

THE DOUBLE PORTION of speaking power is already in you. You have the final say over that deal and not the Devil!

Say this with me: IN CHRIST JESUS, I AM A KING-PRIEST! THUS, I HAVE DOUBLE PORTION OF SPEAKING POWER, AND I USE MY POWER TO MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLES POSSIBLE AT EASE! I USE MY POWER TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH AND FULFILL DESTINY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

‘… Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you’ (John 16:23).

Do you always end your prayers with “in Jesus’ name?” Maybe your Sunday School teacher taught you to do this, or maybe you have heard church leaders and other believers utter it at the end of their prayers.

My friend, why do you do so?

The Lord wants you to realize that whenever you pray and say “in Jesus’ name,” you are putting your entire faith for your prayer to be answered not in who you are or what you have done, but in the person and name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and what He has done via the Cross!

Whenever we ask God for anything in Jesus’ name, Jesus says to us, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.” This means that in your prayer for healing, when you say “in Jesus’ name,” healing comes over your sick body, because it is by His stripes that you are healed (1 Peter 2:24). In your prayer for protection, when you say “in Jesus’ name,” you are kept safe because the blood of Jesus speaks protection over you and vitally delivers you from all evil (Exodus 12:13).

Beloved, your family’s good name cannot save people. Your pastor’s name cannot save people. Even the name of the latest medical breakthrough cannot save people. Only one name under heaven can save you—Jesus! And the good news is that His name in Hebrew, YESHUA, means salvation—healing, preservation, wholeness, wellness, provision, prosperity, safety and deliverance for you and your family!

Whenever you pray, slow down at the end of your prayer and say, “Father, I make all these entire requests not based on what I have or have not done, but based on Jesus and His finished work for me at the Cross. I ask all these in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

IN THE NAME OF Jesus you have total assurance that your prayers will all be answered.

Say this with me: FATHER, I ASK FOR A GREATER DIMENSION OF THE GLORIOUS MANIFESTATIONS OF YOUR BLESSINGS IN MY LIFE! I ASK THIS NOT BASED ON WHAT I HAVE OR HAVE NOT DONE, BUT BASED ON JESUS AND HIS FINISHED WORKS VIA THE CROSS. I ASK ALL THESE IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!

Whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says’ (Mark 11:23).

One of the common reasons some Christians do not receive the vital breakthroughs they desire, is the fact that some of them are not speaking out what they believe about God’s Word, but are instead speaking out what they see, feel and experience in their circumstances.

Then, there are others who just suffer in silence—literally. They don’t say anything—good or bad—because they have resigned themselves to their negative situations.

Speak what you believe about God’s Word and believe what you speak.

God has actually made it easy to receive your vital breakthrough. Jesus tells us in Mark 11:23, “Whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Did you notice that in this one verse, Jesus used the word “says“_ three times and _“believe” only once? I think right there He is showing us the key to receiving by faith!

Many of you may believe the right things about God’s Word, but are you saying them? Jesus’ point in the verse above is to speak out what you believe. Because when you speak, you are putting your faith in action. That is how faith operates.

Beloved, God wants us to walk by faith and not by sight. He demonstrated this right from the beginning when He called things that did not exist in the natural as though they existed. So when God saw the darkness, He said, LIGHT, BE!” and light was.

You are born of God, you have His Life and nature in you, you are a partaker of God’s Divine Nature and you have the ability to speak as He speaks. Whatever you need, see His provision and speak it forth in faith!

God has already provided whatever you need. All things are yours!

So, what do you believe for today–a healthy body; a financial breakthrough; a restored marriage; a baby? Whatever it is, I want you to know that the provision is already there.

God is a good God; One Who is constantly supplying grace, health, protection, deliverance and whatever you need in life based on Jesus’ finished work.

At the Cross, Jesus’ body was broken so that yours may be whole and healthy; He was made poor so that you can be well provided for; He was separated from His loved ones so that you may have happy, fruitful relationships; and He was shunned and despised so that today, you may be highly favored!

Jesus has accomplished everything for you. All you need to do now is to believe all that He has achieved for you. Speak in faith and receive.

Understand that when you speak, either good or bad, you give life to whatever you are saying. God’s Word tells us that death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), and that he who loves life and wants to see good days should refrain from speaking evil (1 Peter 3:10).

God has given you the power to change your circumstances, and that power lies in your mouth. So choose life by speaking positively and in line with God’s promises for you.

Stating the obvious won’t change anything and will only make you more fearful. Speaking the good that you want to see, on the other hand, gives you hope, builds faith and changes things for the better as God’s power is released.

BOLDLY SPEAK WHAT YOU believe about God’s Word and firmly believe what you speak.

Say this with me: I WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT! I AM WHO GOD SAYS I AM; I HAVE WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS I HAVE; AND I CAN DO WHAT THE WORD SAYS I CAN DO.

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose’ (Proverbs 18:21; MSG).

Vitally command the blessings today! Put your mouth to good use!

Start by believing that God wants you to have an abundance of every good thing and a life filled with good days. As you begin your day, learn to say, “In the name of Jesus, I vitally command blessings, favor, health, provision, protection, dominion and power to fill my life today!”

Instead of focusing on the lack that you see, say what God’s Word says concerning lack. Say, I declare that I am greatly blessed and provided for. Poverty and lack have no place in my life!”

If you’ve received a bad report from your doctor, instead of speaking sickness and death, say, “Jesus died young so that I can live long. He was scourged and His body broken so that mine can be whole. God’s Word declares that no evil shall befall me and my loved ones, now and in the future!” (Psalm 91:10).

And if you find yourself fearful for your children, I encourage you to say, “God’s Word declares that the seed of the righteous shall be delivered (Proverbs 11:21). Therefore, my children are delivered from every spell, every power of darkness and every evil. In the name of Jesus, I call forth a great, bright and blessed future for my children!”

Beloved, believe God’s Word,

Speak it and you will see it!

It is my heart’s prayer that you will always rest in the complete, perfect work of Jesus. Because of Jesus, you are healthy, favored, prosperous, fruitful, accepted, approved of and dearly loved!

This is God’s reality. Let it be your reality too. Not next week, next month, or next year. See yourself as your heavenly Father sees you, and speak His language of faith. Start receiving His blessings by faith today!

Remember, you don’t have to strive and strain. Faith isn’t about working to gain God’s approval. Faith is simply seeing and believing how good God is and receiving all that Jesus died to give you.

FIX YOUR EYES on the glorious sacrifice of Christ and speak into reality every one of its benefit into your circumstance today.

Say this with me: FAITH IS NOT ABOUT WORKING TO GAIN GOD’S APPROVAL. FAITH IS SIMPLY SEEING AND BELIEVING HOW GOOD GOD IS AND RECEIVING ALL THAT JESUS DIED TO GIVE ME.

No grain offering which you bring to the Lord shall be made with leaven, for you shall burn no leaven nor any honey in any offering to the Lord made by fire’ (Leviticus 2:11).

When I was a young Christian, I heard that sometimes God will allow bad things like accident, failures, sickness, and death of loved ones to happen to us, so as to teach us a lesson. This kind of teaching illustrates the Lord to be like a shepherd who sometimes breaks the legs of the sheep which habitually stray, so as to teach them not to stray. This erroneous teaching, is saying that—“The Lord is my Shepherd, He breaketh my legs so as to teach me a lesson.”

Such erroneous teachings are what God’s Word refers to as “leaven.” That is why Jesus cautioned His disciples, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees” (Matthew 16:6). The leaven of the Pharisees was their doctrine of legalism, which judges and condemns people who fail to keep God’s laws. The leaven of the Sadducees was their doctrine of humanism, which discounts the supernatural and teaches that everything can be explained away using reasoning or science.

When God told His people in Leviticus 2:11, “No grain offering which you bring to the Lord shall be made with leaven,” we are reminded that how we appreciate Jesus, our grain offering, must not be mixed with wrong teachings. For example, when we talk about “suffering with Christ” (Romans 8:17), we must know that it is not about suffering sicknesses or lack, things which Jesus has borne for us, but suffering persecution, scorn and rejection for His name’s sake, which we are likely to face as good Christians.

What you believe about Jesus is important because the Holy Spirit bears witness only to the truth (John 16:13). So ask Him to unveil the beauty of Christ and the perfection of His finished work to you when you read God’s Word. Find out from the Word how Christ has made you free from every curse and paid for you to enjoy all of God’s blessings with His sacrifice at the Cross.

Beloved, get rid of any leaven in your believing. Believe and declare that you are healed, not sick; prosperous, not poor; and forever righteous in Christ. And when you start believing and confessing God’s truths, the anointing of the Holy Spirit will be released for the vital breakthrough you need!

HOLD ON TO THED SOUND Gospel of Christ and His finished works without mixing it with other leaven. You will experience more results of His this way.

Say this with me: JESUS CHRIST HAS MADE ME FREE FROM ALL CURSE, AND PAID FOR ME TO ENJOY ALL OF GOD’S BLESSINGS WITH HIS SACRIFICE AT THE CROSS.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us’ (2 Corinthians 4:7).

The verse tells us that we have “this treasure in earthen vessels.” Who is the treasure? Christ! Who are the earthen vessels here? You and I! Thank God the treasure is in the earthen vessels.

Christ, the treasure, is in you! Glory to God! Always remember that Christ the treasure is in you. Should you lose your cool with your spouse or children, remember that Christ in you is your patience. When you feel impatient, you don’t pray, “Lord Jesus, give me patience… now!” No, you look to Jesus and say, “Lord Jesus, I thank You that You are my patience.”

In my younger days as a believer, I had negative thoughts parading my mind, with some struggles and a mindset of impossibility. I added fasting a lot to my strong will to stop them, it didn’t stop, but when I met my Father in the Lord, Daddy Moyo Akin-Ojo, he taught me from the Word how that Christ is my righteousness and all I needed to do was to believe am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, and proclaim it in faith, proclaim it especially when I think I have missed the mark!

Beloved, I did this and, gradually, those challenges started going down and within a year, they all vanished! The good news is that they vanished with the want to! Thus, they never came back. Glory to God! I was not even conscious of the change in me, I was simply conscious of Christ the treasure in me, and the desired change automatically manifested. Halleluiah!

When family members can see the patience of Christ manifesting through a naturally impatient person, God gets the glory. Perhaps you are frustrated with your smoking and drinking habits. Or maybe you are discouraged and irritated by your feeling of jealousy, distrust, bitterness, depression and defeat. Don’t condemn yourself for being earthen. Don’t try to “cast out” your earthiness. Just realize that you have Christ, the treasure, in you.

The more you see that treasure in you, the more Christ’s brilliance shines forth in you and in the midst of your earthiness, and God gets the glory as you yourself are transformed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).

CHRIST IN ME: He is glorified through me; I am strengthened through His ability and virtues in me.

Say this with me: I HAVE THIS TREASURE IN ME; THAT THE EXCELLENCE OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD AND NOT OF ME. THE TREASURE IN ME IS CHRIST!

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people’ (Hebrews 2:17).

In the Old Testament, the standing of the Israelite people as a nation before God was wrapped up in the standing of their high priest. What the high priest was before God, so was the entire nation before God. God would see the people as He saw their high priest.

If the high priest sinned, he brought guilt on his nation, and God would reject the entire nation no matter how law-abiding the people were or how faithful they were in bringing their sacrifices.

Conversely, if their high priest was without fault and acceptable to God, God would accept the whole nation even if the people were sinful.

Unfortunately, the high priests of Israel often failed, because, like any human being, they were imperfect.

Thank God that, today, you and I have Jesus as our High Priest, who is one hundred per cent man and one hundred per cent God. As our High Priest, His standing before God is always right; Jesus is always acceptable and pleasing to the Father. Therefore, we can never lose our acceptance with God because as our High Priest, Jesus only brings righteousness on His people.

In heaven right now, Jesus our High Priest is seated at the right hand of God the Father; which is the seat of enthronement (Romans 8:34). This means that God does not look at you. He looks at Jesus. If Jesus is good, you are good; if Jesus is accepted, you are accepted; if God sees Jesus perfect, then He sees you perfect; if Jesus is righteous, then you are righteous. And we know that Jesus our High Priest is good, accepted, perfect and righteous, which means that, that is how God sees us!

You cannot lose your right standing, because Jesus Christ is your High Priest. To lose your standing, Jesus has to lose His standing first. But we know that we have in Jesus a High Priest who is perfect and who cannot fail. So you need never be afraid or conscious of your faults when you fellowship with God. Because your standing is completely wrapped up in Jesus your High Priest, you can fellowship with God boldly and receive all that you need from Him!

I HAVE A PERFECT High Priest–Christ Jesus–He never fails; therefore, I am forever righteous.

Say this with me: MY RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD IS WRAPPED UP IN JESUS MY HIGH PRIEST. SINCE JESUS MY HIGH PRIEST IS ACCEPTED, PERFECT AND RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD THE FATHER, I AM ACCEPTED, PERFECT AND RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD TOO! FOR AS JESUS IS, SO AM I. MY RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD IS FOREVER WRAPPED UP IN CHRIST JESUS!

Then He adds, Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more’ (Hebrews 10:17).

Beloved, the Bible says: “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin” (Romans 4:8). Hallelujah! I jumped for joy when I found out that God was not counting our sins against us, and that He has given us something called no imputation of sins! And the ministry of reconciliation!

2 Corinthians 5:18-19 says, “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” This Scripture, like 1 John 2:2, tells us clearly that Jesus is the propitiation for both believers’ and unbelievers’ sins; so, even for the unbelievers, God has given them the gift of no imputation of sin too, all what God wants from them is to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

You might say, “Pastor Gee, stop right there! What are you saying?”

I want to ask you a question: was it not in Acts 10: 38-44 that we saw the first gentile family getting born-again and gloriously filled with the Holy Ghost, while Peter was preaching? Good! Do you remember that before Apostle Peter went on this Journey he saw a trance where God talked figuratively to him about unclean animals, God referring to the Gentiles clearly said, is it what I have cleaned that you, Peter, are calling unclean, He didn’t say what I will clean, but What He has Cleaned! Glory to God! This guys were not yet born again, but God was not imputing their sins against them, all He wanted, was for Peter to get them Born-again, Preach the Gospel to them! Awesome! God truly is Agape!

My friend, the reason that God does not impute any of our sins to us is that He has already imputed all of them to the body of His Son Jesus when He hung on the cross more than 2,000 years ago. Not only that, when God punished His Son for our sins, He caused the curse of the law to fall stroke by stroke upon Jesus’ entire body until every curse had been fully satisfied. That is why, instead of imputing sin to us, God imputes righteousness to us the moment we become or became believers!

God wants us to know that our sins and lawless deeds He will remember no more. The words “no more” in the original Greek text carry a strong double-negative meaning. In other words, God is saying, “No way, by no means, will I ever remember your sins again!”

Beloved, since God says that He will remember your sins no more, why do you still remember them? Or for that matter, your spouse’s or neighbor’s sins? God does not want you to be conscious of sins because He is not. So rejoice! Fellowship with Him boldly and expect Him to vitally show you mercy and grace because He remembers your sins no more!

Say this with me: ALL MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN! BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS, GOD WILL NO WAY, BY NO MEANS EVER REMEMBER MY SINS AGAIN! GLORY TO GOD! ALL MY SINS HAS BEEN ETERNALLY REMOVED VIA THE BLOOD OF JESUS!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report. [3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear’ (Hebrews 11:1-3; KJV).

Your actions and faith ought to harmonize with the gospel and rhema-specifics in order for the Word to vitally become a reality in your life. Faith is the practical demonstration of your confidence in God and His word. Faith is seeing what Christ and His finished works have done for you and embracing them!

While you can confess that you are a millionaire, that doesn’t mean you should write a cheque for a million dollars and try to deposit it in your account. Yes, you may be on your way to millionaire status vitally, but you shouldn’t buy things you can’t afford in order to make a statement. That’s not faith – that’s foolishness. However, there are exemptions.

Exemptions are when the Spirit of God gives you rhema-specifics! And you are acting on the word the Lord has given to you! Acting on Rhema specific is faith too. I believe years of lab testing with your faith, and following the leading of the Spirit makes it all easier. Glory to God!

Keep declaring your faith, because via this declaration, you are exercising your faith Muscles. Be diligent and consistent in vitally developing your spirit’s capacity and lab-testing with your faith to vitally manifest or receive greater things from God. Feed and meditate on the word until your heart is firmly established in it.

The essence of meditation is so that the revelations of the Gospel, like a seed, an incorruptible seed, will be planted and rooted in our hearts and, in that process, builds us up and gives us inheritance vitally. This is what it takes to make your way vitally prosperous.

Say this with me: I AM A MULTI MILLIONAIRE IN DOLLARS, POUNDS AND EUROS IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AND THROUGH MY PROSPERITY THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS SPREADING MUCH MORE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. AMEN!

Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]’ (Romans 12:2; AMP).

Who you are today is a result of the sum total of choices you made yesterday. Your character is a direct result of the habits you have formed in life. Webster dictionary defines habit as a ‘settled tendency or usual manner of behavior or a behavioral pattern acquired by frequent repetition’.

Your character is a direct result of the habits you have formed in life. Your habits shape and form your character; and your character is you before people. Ultimately, habits begin with the decisions you make based on either the Word of God or an outside source.

This is how habits are formed – by making simple, everyday decisions.

It is vital that you allow your decisions to be governed by God’s Word and not your emotions. Deal with BAD HABITS by beholding the glory of the Lord gazingly and absorbingly. Break the unbreakable that way. The words you receive and the choices you make as a result of your mindset will cause certain habits to form.

Your habits play a significant role in the type of character you develop and ultimately the destination that you reach in life.

The next day, John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world’ (John 1:29).

From the opening scripture, we see John refer to Jesus as the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.

In the Old Testament, the blood of animals could not take away sins, because there was a yearly remembrance of sin. The blood of animals could only cover the sins of the children of Israel for one year. Therefore, before the end of the year, they were expected to offer another sacrifice for the next year.

But in those sacrifice, there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls of goats should take away sins” .

However, in the New Testament, the true Lamb of God is Jesus Christ. He did not come to cover your sins for one year, when He came; He took all your sins once and for all.

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God…” .

Today your sins have been eternally removed because of what Jesus, the true Lamb of God, did on your behalf more than 2000 years ago.

Live your life conscious of this fact that your sins have been removed, and as such, God does not remember your sins.

Say this with me: ALL MY SINS (past, present, and future) HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY FORGIVEN. GOD IS FOR ME TODAY, GOD IS FOR ME TOMORROW, AND GOD IS FOR ME FOREVER!

Ye are of God little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world’ (1John 4:4).

The man that is born again has overcome the world, and not an overcomer or someone who is going to overcome.

Why have you overcome? Because the greater one lives on the inside of you, because you have received eternal (Zoe) life: the very life that raised Jesus from the dead, the very life that gives life to dead circumstances, and that very life that causes the impossible to become possible at ease.

When you are faced with a situation or something that looks like a challenge, remember the greater one lives on the inside of you. Remember you have overcome the world!

In the book of revelation, Jesus declared:

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed with white raiment…” (Revelation 3:5).

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son” .

Furthermore, Jesus stated: “…to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life…” (Revelation 2:7).

Now the question is; who is Jesus referring to?

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the son of God” .

Glory to God, Jesus is referring to you and me.

I announce to you that you have overcome all things (every negativity and challenge), because Jesus finished ALL of it at the Cross.

Now, we rest and put our faith on what Jesus has done on our behalf in that He died, was buried, and resurrected

Say this with me: I HAVE OVERCOME EVERY CHALLENGE BECAUSE THE GREATER ONE LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF ME. I HAVE OVERCOME THEM ALL. GLORY TO GOD! HALLELUYAH!

For Zion sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and thy salvation as a lamb that burneth’ (Isaiah 62:1).

God’s mind for you is that you should vitally manifest as the image of His son. As such, He has sworn that, for your sake, He would not rest nor hold His peace until you manifest vitally all that Jesus has done for you.

Beloved, this speaks of the heart of God towards you when it comes to your family, finances, business, job, and every area of your life.

God wants you to have a prosperous family. God wants your business to vitally take over the world. God wants you not just to have a job, but a position of influence so you can be a blessing to your world. God wants your finances to increase so that you can have more than enough to give and to spare.

Yeah, this is God’s mind for you. Glory to God!

What shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall him not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32).

God is for you and has sworn not to rest for your sake, because of His love for you. This love was demonstrated when He gave His only begotten son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for sin.

Now as the light of the world, God has called you to shine in the midst of darkness, scarcity, and recession (Isaiah 60:1).

Halleluiah to the risen King!

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all’ (Isaiah 53:6).

In the Old Testament, when an individual sinned, he brings a Lamb before the high priest. Then, the high priest examines the lamb if it is perfect, or if it has any spot or wrinkles, lest the lamb would be rejected.

After the high priest confirms the lamb to be perfect, then the individual would have to lay his hands on the head of the innocent lamb. When this happens, the sin of the person is transferred to that innocent lamb, while the innocence and righteousness of the lamb comes onto the person.

After that, the lamb is sacrificed as a sin offering.

Therefore, the lamb being killed is a fact that the lamb took the death of the man. Thus, this was the much more that Jesus has done for us.

When the human race was yet in sin, God offered Jesus as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole human race. He was scourged, bruised, battered, and hung shamelessly at the Cross. On the Cross, God laid on Him all our sins (past, present, and future), and gave Him up as the perfect sacrifice for us all. Jesus died our death; He took our sicknesses and diseases, and bore our pains and carried our sorrows.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:3-5).

Jesus left no stone untouched! He did a complete and a perfect work through the Cross. Now, there is nothing missing and nothing broken in your life.

Say thus with me: I LIVE THE LIFE OF GLORY AND EXCELLENCE BECAUSE JESUS TOOK MY PLACE AT THE CROSS! GLORY TO GOD!

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me’ (1 Corinthians 15:9-10).

Today, when you talk to some persons about GRACE, what runs through their mind is a passive lifestyle–the idea of laziness. However, this is not true as seen from the scriptural verse above.

Grace does not make you live a passive lifestyle, but empowers you to accomplish much more in your business, career, family, and your job. When a believer receives the grace of God and if they refuse to labor with God’s grace, they have received the grace of God in vain.

Paul in our opening scripture said “…and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain;”

Also, grace doesn’t make you live a licentious lifestyle, where you are free to continue living in sin, but is the very solution to the sin problem. The Bible clearly states that “sin shall not have dominion over you, because you are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14).

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” (Titus 2:11-13).

Therefore, the more we keep on keeping on feeding on Jesus and His finished works is the more we are changed and transformed. Before you know it, all the struggles are gone; the addictions gone; and the more your heart will be lifted out in faith to manifest the life of prosperity, health, success, and abundance vitally.

Say this with me: I LABOUR MORE ABUNDANTLY THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD I HAVE RECEIVED. I AM GOING ALL OUT IN FAITH TO FULFIL DESTINY IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD (Genesis 6:6-8).

Noah is an example of someone who lived under grace in its shadow form. Firstly, the whole world was condemned, but Noah found grace in the sight of the LORD and was exempted from judgment. Secondly, he was endued with supernatural ability that he completed the ark God instructed him to build within seven days. Remarkable!

This is unbelievable considering the instructions God gave him as to how the ark should be built, the size, the storey buildings that needs to be made, and the details of animals (male and female) to be kept inside the ark.

However, all these were accomplished just within the space of seven days; after which, God caused the rain to come upon the earth.

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him” (Genesis 7:4-5).

This is supernatural speed and supernatural ability at work! Glory to God!

It doesn’t matter where you are at currently, or the progress you have made thus far, it is time to accomplish far much more in your family, business, job, and career. Supernatural speed has come and you are outrunning the chariots of kings in Jesus name! Amen!

When it comes to result and accomplishment, our voice of hope is very important. What can you see about your future, family, career, and business? What can you see about the years ahead?

Beloved, what you see is very important. Hence, God wants you to see with the eyes of faith. If you see God increasing you from 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3, that is what your faith will most likely bring into manifestation.

On the other hand, if you see God increasing you from 1 to 5000 and from 5000 to 100,000, that is what you will get. This is, because God would always bring your hope (faith) into manifestation. No wonder God is telling us to enlarge our tents, lengthen our habitation, and see the big picture. No wonder, he told Abraham to look North, South, East, and West: for the land he sees (with the eyes of faith), he would give it unto him.

Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;” (Isaiah 54:2).

Dearly beloved, dream big! See great and mighty things concerning your future, business, family, and jobs, and God will bring more than what you see into manifestation.

This is what feeding strategically on God’s word would effortlessly do for you! Remember, the more we behold, the more our capacity is stretched!

Say this with me: I FEED STRATEGICALLY ON JESUS AND HIS FINISHED WORKS EVERY DAY IN JESUSMIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

‘[Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
**]9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day’ (Zech 3:8-9).

Here, Prophet Zachariah gives a word of prophecy about Jesus—the BRANCH (Isaiah 11:1). In the book Revelation, the “seven eyes” represented the Seven Spirit of God before the throne (Revelation 5:6). And “stones” represent YOU and ME as lively stones, with Jesus as the Chief Corner Stone.

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded” (1 Peter 2:5-6).

Seven in the Bible is a number of complete, whole, and entirety.

So when the Prophet Zachariah says; “…upon one stone shall be seven eyes,” it means that upon ONE (EACH) believer is the fullness of the Spirit of God.

Something so remarkable about this scripture is: “behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.”

As believers, we have been engraved in the hearts of Jesus Christ by virtue of the fact that we are new creatures, and all our sins have been REMOVED! This took place at the Cross more than 2000 years ago. Jesus absorbed all our sins like a magnet on Himself. He took ALL our sicknesses, diseases, and poverty and cried with a loud voice, “IT IS FINISHED!”

Every debt cancelled!

The claims of justice were fully met!

And ALL our sins and iniquity have been removed!

As prophesied by Prophet Zachariah, Jesus REMOVED the sins and iniquities of the whole human race in just ONE day. Glory to God!

Say this with me: MY SINS HAVE BEEN REMOVED! NOW, AM FREE TO DO WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO! HALLELUIAH!

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth’ (Romans 10: 4).

For 1500 years, the Jewish people were under the Law, and none of them could keep all of God’s laws perfectly. The Law was a stumbling block, a barrier, and a hindrance to God’s relationship with man.

The Law tells you “Thou shall not…” and leaves you helpless, but Grace (Jesus) tells you “I will…” and empowers you to do.

God does not assess you based on the Law. Christ removed it all at the Cross through His death at the Cross. The Devil’s weapon is the Law. He uses the Law to condemn believers saying; “You are a hypocrite! See what you did yesterday, and you think God is going to protect you or bless you? You are deceiving yourself!”

The Devil twists scriptures to deceive some believers to make them believe a lie. This was what he did to Jesus in the wilderness. His old ways deceits have not changed for thousands of years even till now.

This weapon of using the “Law” to condemn and rob believers of their inheritance in Christ has been disarmed by Jesus.

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Col 2:13-15).

However, at the Cross, the thick veil that covers the temple, which is a picture of the Law, was torn from top to bottom. God had to tear the veil when His Son died at the Cross. Jesus death has brought an end to the Law.

He finished it!

Now, the devil has no right to accuse you before God. When the devil bring any thoughts of condemnation to your heart, refuse it and hold fast to what Christ has done for you!

Say this with me: I AM NOT UNDER THE LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen’ (Heb 11:1).

Faith is different from hope. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for. When someone is hoping, they say things like: “God will provide for me!” “God will do it!” “I know things will get better!”

The above statements are not “faith” but “hope.” Hope shows you the picture of whatever you believe God for, but faith brings you into the vital reality of it.

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;” (Heb 6:19).

Our hope is built on nothing else, but on Jesus blood and all that He has accomplished for us all. We are assured of glorious things concerning our jobs, families, business, and careers, because of what Jesus has done! We look at the future with great assurance of glory, because Christ Jesus lives on the inside of us.

Nevertheless, faith is what makes us to experience this glorious life vitally! On the other hand, when someone is in faith, they say: “I believe I have received!” “God has done it!” “God is my source!” And “the lines HAVE fallen unto me in pleasant places.”

Furthermore, faith does not stop here. Another thing about faith is that faith acts on what it believes. Acting on God’s word to achieve those dreams and aspirations God has placed in your heart is faith. As you act on God’s word, you will vitally experience and see everything you have hoped for! Glory to God!

Say this with me[*:*] CHRIST IN ME IS MY HOPE FOR THE GLORIOUS LIFE! I SPEAK AND ACT BASED ON GOD’S WORD IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new’ (2 Corinthians 5:17; KJV)

Anyone who has accepted the sacrifice of Christ is a new creature. The Bible says: He is a NEW CREATION, and not will be. He is one who never existed or pre-existed, He is altogether a brand new man, with a new kind of life (Zoe). At the point of being born again, the old man (psuche) died and the new man (Zoe) started living.

This birth is not a rebirth, because to God this man never had a past, nor existed. He is a brand new person with a new life. The new creation is born of God. Again, the new creation is not remade or refurbished. He is not just endowed with a new character; they are born with the very nature of God in their spirit.

The new creation may look the same outside but the truth is that, he is completely new inside. Therefore, they now live their life from the inside. They have the divine nature of God in their spirit and are as righteous as God is righteous (2 Peter1:4; Ephesians 5:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

The unbeliever at the point of being born again receives remission of sins (Acts 2:38) which means that sin and the very nature of sin has been taken away; and the person receives a new nature of righteousness.

The new creation in Christ Jesus is born of God. He firstly believes in his heart what the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has done for him, and then confesses what he believes with his mouth (Romans 10:9-10). As soon as this is done, he is automatically birthed by God as His own very child.

Say this with me: I AM A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS! I HAVE THE NATURE OF GOD IN ME! I HAVE THE LIFE OF GOD IN ME! JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OVER MY LIFE! I AM BORN AGAIN! MY YEAR AND FUTURE ARE BLESSED IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

‘…from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named’ (Ephesians 3:15).

Now that you have accepted the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, and He is Lord over your life, you have being born into the family of God. The family of God includes all who believed and received His Lordship in the past, now, and all those who will in the future.

God being the Father of every believer has made all other Christians brethren (brothers and sisters). This is so, because we have the same Father, God. Therefore, you are a part of God’s family.

Colossians 1:13; “who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear son.”

Before we got born again, we were not in the kingdom of God’s son i.e. His family, we were alienated from it. Now as children of God, we have been translated into the Kingdom of His son. By virtue of our salvation, we are born into God’s family. And now, God has blessed us with all blessings already.

“…who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3).

Therefore, let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;” (1 Corinthians 3:21-23).

Blessings are upon the head of the just…” (Proverbs 10:6)

Say this with me: I AM FROM ZION THE CITY OF THE LIVING GOD! IN ZION THE KING OF KINGS IS MY ABBA FATHER! I AM ROYALTY! I AM BLESSED WITH ALL THE BLESSINGS HEAVEN HAS! MY YEAR AND FUTURE ARE BLESSED! GLORY TO GOD!

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost’ (Matthew 28:18-19; KJV).

The word “GOSPEL” means too good to be true news. This news is that because of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, God has: FORGIVEN US ALL OUR SINS: our past, present and future sins have been eternally forgiven.

“…having forgiven us all trespasses (Colossians 2:13).

I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities; I will remember NO MORE (Hebrews 8:12).

Beloved, GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH YOU! The Bible explains that when God saw the picture of the sacrifice of Jesus in Isaiah 53, His anger, wrath and judgment became satisfied. Then in Isaiah 54, He goes on to add that He will never be angry with you or condemn you His Child based on the antecedent, i.e. the preceding death of Christ already shown in chapter 53. For this is as unto me as the waters of Noah unto me, for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no longer go over the earth to destroy it, SO have I SWORN that I would* *] [Ou- me in the Greek meaning, never ever, certainly not in any which way] BE WROTH (angry) WITH THEE NOR REBUKE (condemn) THEE (you)” (Isaiah 54:9).

Today, GOD IS YOUR FATHER AND AS JESUS IS, SO ARE YOU IN THIS WORLD: God is no longer just God to you; He is now your eternal loving father

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father”. (Rom 8:15)

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

We are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones” (Eph 5:30).

Therefore, what the sacrifice of Christ has done is MUCH MORE. So, as we preach Grace and Reality [Jesus Christ], lives will be transformed, people will be free from guilt and condemnation, and they will move to new levels of victories and promotions in life effortlessly. For the demand is on this Gospel of Grace, which is THE POWER of God unto salvation [health, wealth, success, abundance, prosperity, peace of mind, deliverance and wholeness]

Say this with me: I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, BECAUSE IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERYONE THAT BELIEVES [Romans 1:16]. MY YEAR AND FUTURE ARE BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For by grace you were saved through faith, and not yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast’ (Ephesians 2:8-9).

People are sinners not because they did something wrong or right, but because of Adam’s disobedience; [“for as by one man’s disobedience, many were made sinners, even so, by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous” (Romans 5:19).]. In this same way, the obedience of Jesus Christ on the Cross has made those who have accepted the finished work of Christ saved and righteous.

For by grace you were saved through faith, and not yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, least anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

We become Christians through God’s unmerited grace, not as a result of our effort, ability, intelligent or act of service on our part. Therefore, it is evident that no act of service or work we do could have helped us obtain salvation. It was all by God’s grace. It is the gift of God! You work for salary or wages, but not for gifts. Salvation is a free gift from God to the world. Yours is to simply receive. It’s free to us, but it cost God heaven’s best, Jesus Christ!

Sometimes, the Devil likes to deceive God’s people by making them feel as if they are not saved, and as if all their sins have not been forgiven. Our assurance for salvation is not our feelings but God’s word. Salvation is as close as a man’s heart to his mouth.

Romans 10:9-10; “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”

You believed with your heart and with your mouth, and then confess what you believed in your heart. This is from the word of God, we know that ‘the witness of God is better’ than any feeling of being saved or not:

1 John 5:9-13; “If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

Say this with me: I AM A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS! I HAVE THE NATURE OF GOD IN ME! I HAVE THE LIFE OF GOD IN ME! JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OVER MY LIFE! I AM BORN AGAIN! MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS BLESSED IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the sons of God’ (Roman 8:16).

Beloved, as believers, The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are God’s children. He does this through the inward witness. He lets us know by this witness who we are. The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are alive and we are born of God.

Through what the Word says about new creatures and the witness of the Holy Spirit, we are continually assured of the fact that we are saved despite our feelings. It does not matter what our senses tell us. The only important testimony is the one God gives concerning us. Glory to God!

Man is a spirit; he has a soul and lives in a Body. The new man in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) is the man that got saved. His body may remain the same but he is changed because HE IS A SPIRIT. The human body that houses a man, is not the person, the real person is the spirit, that’s the one that got born again, that’s the one alive with God who is a spirit too.

Say this with me: I AM A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS! I HAVE THE NATURE OF GOD IN ME! I HAVE THE LIFE OF GOD IN ME! JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OVER MY LIFE! I AM BORN AGAIN! MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS BLESSED IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified’ (Acts 20:32).

When one becomes born again, he or she is like a spiritual Baby and will have to grow. As you put yourself fully under the teachings of the Word of His grace, it will automatically build you up and make you effortlessly inherit God’s promises for your life (1 Peter 2:2; Hebrews 5:14).

The word of His Grace is the same as the word of faith, word of truth, gospel of peace: it is simply the Gospel of Christ, it is the too good to be true news that Christ brought to us via the wings of His death, burial and resurrection.

Therefore, any experiences, dreams or prophecies that does not line up with God’s word should be IGNORED as they are LYING VANITIES. The word of His Grace is the more sure word of prophecy we have now, halleluiah.

Never forget that, anyone who has accepted the sacrifice of Christ is a new creature. The Bible says: He is a NEW CREATION, and not that he will be. He is one who never existed or pre-existed, He is altogether a brand new man, with a new kind of life (Zoe). At the point of being born again, the old man died (psuche) and the new man (Zoe) started living.

This birth is not a rebirth, because to God this man never had a past, nor existed. He is a brand new person with a new life. The new creation is born of God.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying’s, murders, drunkenness, raveling’s, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts’ (Galatians 5:16-24).

The above scripture is a contrast between what the law which is the strength of sin produced in the life of man, and what Grace via the sacrifice of Jesus has produced in the life of a believer now.

The works of the flesh represents the result of the Law while the fruit of the spirit represents the product of His Grace… Check out these statements from the verse above: “…*But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law*… But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Therefore, according to our opening scripture, those that are born again or in Christ have crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts. They are not trying to crucify the flesh, they have crucified it! Stop trying to achieve what you already have in Christ Jesus, just believe the Gospel and take it as it is and give glory to God!

The fruit of the spirit [grace] is a product of what the finished work of Christ has done on the Cross. The day you were born again you were birthed with the fruit of the spirit they are in you already, and as you behold what the sacrifice of Jesus has done for you, you will be vitally changed from glory to glory. We are not transformed by works; we are transformed simply by beholding what the sacrifice of Christ has done for us.

As we behold we are changed… (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Therefore, the result of being under grace (spirit) is love, joy, peace, gentleness, faith, meekness, goodness, self-control, prosperity, health, success, wholeness etc.

Say this with me: I AM NOT UNDER LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE! THEREFORE, I HAVE DOMINION OVER SIN! MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS BLESSED INTHE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For He made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him’ (2 Corinthians 5:21; NKJV).

Righteousness does not mean perfection and a righteous man is not necessarily a moralist or a principled person. Righteousness is having God’s nature.

It is only by the sacrifice of Christ that you have been made righteous, and this is the reason you are eternally accepted, forever at all times by God. As believers, we are living a divine exchanged life and not the changed life. This is because Jesus took ALL our sins (past, present and future) and gave us His righteousness.

Romans 5:19: “For as by one man’s disobedience (Adam), many were made sinners…”

Many were made sinners not because of the wrong things they did or the good thing they did, but basically because of Adam’s disobedience. Therefore, ALL have sinned not because they did anything bad or good but because of what Adam did in that he disobeyed.

In this same vein, the Bible said: “…by one man’s obedience (the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross), many have been made righteous.” Our opening scripture clearly tell us that Jesus, who knew no sin, absorbed all our sins and gave us (believers) His righteousness. And now we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. This means it’s the very same nature of righteousness that God has that we have in Christ Jesus. Glory to God!

Say this with me: JESUS WHO KNEW NO SIN DIED FOR ME, AND GAVE ME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS! I AM FOREVER RIGHTEOUS, GLORY TO GOD! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS FOREVER BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were sinners, Christ died for us’ (Romans 5:8).

A sin-conscious person is a person that is always conscious of his wrongs. This person might be a believer, He feels unworthy, inferior, and thinks God is angry with him/her because of what he/she has done or has not done.

The Law (the Ten Commandments) produces sin consciousness, while Grace (the Gospel of the finished work of Christ) produces righteousness consciousness.

Under grace, God declares: Hebrews 8:12; “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” And Isaiah 43:25 says: “I, even I, am HE that blots out your transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember your sins”

Beloved, God remembers your sin NO MORE, because all your sins have been judged in the body of Jesus Christ… God has declared you righteous, be righteousness conscious! And don’t forget that you are not under the Law, but under grace. Thus, instead of being Law conscious, be Grace conscious. Be conscious Christ and His finished works!

Some people feel that when negative event is around the corner, it’s because they missed the mark… hmm! Think of Jesus Christ, what did He do wrong that his boat was about to sink? Nothing! Even when He woke up, He didn’t say: “Father, what did I do wrong?” Rather He handled the situation immediately. This is how a righteousness conscious person responds to issues. Glory to God!

And this is what God expects of you when you face opposing situations; rise up as the son or daughter of God that that you are and take charge in the name of Jesus Christ.

Say this with me: JESUS WHO KNEW NO SIN DIED FOR ME, AND GAVE ME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS! I AM FOREVER RIGHTEOUS, GLORY TO GOD! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS FOREVER BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

‘…through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sin: and by him all that believe are JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS, from which ye could not be justified by the Law of Moses’ (Acts 13:38-39).

Justification means God will never ever, certainly not, not in any which way, impute sin in your account as a believer. It means Abba Father does not COUNT YOUR SINS against you; because, ALL the wrongs, sins, condemnation, sickness, poverty and His anger were absorbed by Jesus Christ on the Cross and there is nothing negative left for Him to impute in your account. No wonder, Jesus on the Cross said it is finished. And now, God will never ever, certainly not, not in any which way impute sin against you. Glory to God!

For He that knew no sin became sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Romans 4:6-9; “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.”

Justification, sanctification, remission of sins, and the forgiveness of sins took place automatically at the point of being born again. The complete removal of sin and sin’s very nature took place, and a new man in Christ Jesus was birthed, birthed with ZOE! GLORY!

Say this with me: IN CHRIST JESUS, I AM FOREVER JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED AND RIGHTEOUS! THEREFORE MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we’re a free people — free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds, And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ’ (EPHESIANS 1:7-9; The Message).

Forgiveness in the New Testament is in past tense. It is not something God is about to do, but rather it is something He has done because of the sacrifice of Jesus… Since God does not impute sin against you now, and He has justified you from all things, it also means in the same token, that He has forgiven you all your sins (past, present and future) already. “…having forgiven us all trespasses” (Colossians 2:13).

Redemption means to deliver or set free by paying a price. The Bible tells us that Christ gave Himself for us as the price for our redemption. However, He did more than just that. See these scriptures below.

“…our savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people zealous for good works” (Titus 2:13-14).

Romans 4:25; “who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”

Romans 4:25 above clearly tells us that Jesus’ death on the Cross was for our redemption and His resurrection was for our justification, thus, making us new creatures. This means that if Jesus didn’t resurrect, we would have been redeemed and be like the first Adam, who was created in the likeness of God and made a living soul, which would have been good.

However, God made us the best by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which made us new creatures, not in the likeness of the first Adam in his innocence, but born of God in the likeness of the resurrected Jesus Christ, who is a life giving Spirit. You are now His beloved son in whom He is well pleased. Oh! The power of His resurrection! Glory to God! See this scripture below.

1 Corinthians 15:16-17: “For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ arose: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.”

This tells us that because Christ is raised we are no longer in our sins before God, glory to God. We have been eternally forgiven, and justified from all things… all these shows us a glimpse of the riches of God’s everlasting grace.

Ephesians 1:6-7; “to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”

Say this with me: IN CHRIST JESUS, I AM FOREVER JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED, FORGIVEN, AND RIGHTEOUS! THEREFORE MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered… Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin’ (Romans 4:6-9).

Righteousnessconsciousness is being conscious of the fact that righteousness is the nature of God that has already been imparted to your spirit as a believer; this empowers and emboldens you to fellowship with God without guilt, inferiority complex or condemnation.

Righteousness according to the Bible is a free gift by God; nobody can earn it by working for it or doing something to get it. It is a free gift that is made available to everyone by the divine exchange work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Every born-again child of God is as righteous as our Lord Jesus Christ himself.

Righteousness is not by works but given to you because of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:16-19: “And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man’s offence death reined by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one, judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

Say this with me: JESUS WHO KNEW NO SIN DIED FOR ME, AND GAVE ME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! TODAY, I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS! I AM FOREVER RIGHTEOUS, GLORY TO GOD! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS FOREVER BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

That you put off concerning the former conversation, the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lust: And ye put on the NEW MAN, which after (like) God is created in righteousness and TRUE HOLINESS (Ephesians 4:22-24).

Holiness is the presence of God coming upon a thing. For example Mount Sinai became a holy mountain, because the presence of God came upon it. The same thing happened when Moses saw the burning bush; the bush was sanctified or hallowed as a result of the presence of God that came upon it.

Exodus 3:2-5: “And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, beholds, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.”

The Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament, which is a picture of the sacrifice of Jesus, was constructed and built by men upon God’s instruction. It became the HOLY OF HOLIES in the Tabernacle, because the presence of God came upon it. Therefore, the presence of God upon a thing (living or non-living) makes it holy. Beloved, Christ in you has made you holy.

Paul said that in Christ, neither circumcision mattered anything nor uncircumcision, but a NEW CREATION (Galatians 6:15). He is saying that the man is new despite what the outside looks like. He is now living from inside to the outside.

That you put off concerning the former conversation, the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lust: And ye put on the NEW MAN, which after (like) God is created in righteousness and TRUE HOLINESS (Ephesians 4:22-24).

This shows us that the new man is born with the divine nature of God’s righteousness and true holiness, because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. They are his attributes. 2 Peter 1:4 tells us that God has made us partakers of His divine nature, and since holiness is part of His nature, we are partakers of it also, all because of Jesus’ finished works. Glory to God!

Say this with me: I AM A PARTAKER OF GOD’S DIVINE NATURE, SINCE HOLINESS IS PART OF GOD’S NATURE; I AM A PARTAKER OF IT ALSO! GLORY TO GOD! AND MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS COMPLETELY BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN

But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of God’ (1 Corinthians 6:11).

Godliness is the outward reflection of our inward nature as Christians. It is the outward reflection of our inward nature of righteousness, prosperity, healing, wealth, holiness and much more in the wings of Abba’ mighty Grace. We received this nature because of the finished works of Christ.

This means, though believers are all equally righteous as God is righteous, one believer can be godlier than another. This is, because, it has got to do with outward manifestation of our inward nature as believers. Though a believer cannot be more righteous or holier than another believer, one can have more righteousness consciousness, more holiness consciousness and be godlier than another believer.

Sanctification means ‘consecration’ or separation to God for a special use. It is the setting apart of someone or something unto God, this happened when you got born again. This is instantaneous upon receiving Christ. See this Scriptures:

But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of God” (1corinthans 6:11).

“…we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sin, But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;… For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:10-15).

Say this with me: I AM A PARTAKER OF GOD’S DIVINE NATURE, SINCE HOLINESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, SANCTIFICATION AND GODLINESS ARE PART OF GOD’S NATURE; I AM A PARTAKER OF THEM ALSO! GLORY TO GOD! AND MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS COMPLETELY BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of God’ (1 Corinthians 6:11).

Beloved, “…we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sin, But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;… For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:10-15).

Here are some wrong theories about righteousness:

Righteousness is being good: a righteous man must display good works (e.g. Jesus went about doing good). However, not all “good men” are righteous (e.g. Nicodemus and Cornelius before they met Christ). Being good is the righteousness of men and should never be confused with the righteousness of God, which every believer has due to the finish works of Christ. However, because we believers are righteous, we will do well, it’s our nature! Glory to God!

No one is righteous: this is only true for those who are unsaved. All believers are righteous. In Romans 3, Paul was referring to the Jews and Gentiles when he made the statement! He wasn’t referring to believers! Read your Bible in the context, the moment you take and interpret a verse out of its context it becomes a con.

Righteousness must be earned: righteousness is a free gift received by faith in the finished work of Christ (Romans 3:24; Titus 3:5-7).

Some are more righteous than others: righteousness has nothing to do with works, but everything to do with what Jesus has done for us, in that He died, He was buried and resurrected. Thus, while we can grow in righteousness consciousness through the knowledge of the word of His Grace, no believer is more righteous than another believer.

It is a license to continue in sin: righteousness enables you to live above sin and not condone it. One who truly understands righteousness detests sin (Romans 6:14).

Say this with me: JESUS, WHO KNEW NO SIN DIED FOR ME, AND GAVE ME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! TODAY, I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS! I AM FOREVER RIGHTEOUS, GLORY TO GOD! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS FOREVER BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

If God be for us, who can be against us?’ (Romans 8:31).

Our today’s reading contains a powerful rhetorical question that gets me excited. Unfortunately, there are some believers who still wonder, “Is God really for me?” Well, God’s word does not say, “maybe God is for us or hopefully someday he will be for us,” a thousand times No! It simply says, “If God is for us, who can be against us.” Indeed when God is on your side, what opposition can succeed against you or can thrive around you? There is absolutely none! Hallelujah.

You ask, “Why should God be on my side? I often make mistakes and I have addictions am struggling with.”

Beloved, your answer is found the Cross. Christ’s blood that was shed put God on your side, today, tomorrow and forever. God is for you even when you fail; because Jesus’ blood has, once and for all time, washed you clean.

Do you remember the children of Israel on the night of the Passover? They put the blood of the lamb on their door posts. This single act put God on their side! None of the families who had applied the blood on their doorposts had to fear the death of their firstborn children.

Now, do you think the firstborn children of Israel were spared because of their perfect behavior and conduct? Of course not! They were spared because of the blood of the Lamb.

In the same vein, God doesn’t bless you based on your behaviors or conduct. He is for you today, he is for you tomorrow, and He is for you forever.

Always remember that God is on your side, because of Jesus’ blood. His holiness and righteousness is on your side, because of His blood. All of heaven’s resources are yours, because of Jesus’ blood. Now, who or what can come successfully against you? No sickness, no lack, no ailment, no heartbreaks or even demons can thrive around you. No weapon formed against you can prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

Say with me: GOD IS FOR ME TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER, HALLEUIAH!

‘… He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them’ (Hebrews 7:25).

The verse says that Jesus always lives to make intercession for us. Once, I used to think that this meant that Jesus is seated at the Father’s right hand today, praying all the time for us, waiting and hoping that the Father will do something for us.

But that is not true. Look at what Jesus prayed when He stood before Lazarus’ tomb. He declared, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me” (John 11:41). He prayed these words even before Lazarus came forth from his tomb alive. Jesus knew that what He said would come to pass because the Father always hears Him. (John 11:42).

If God heard what He said days ago before Lazarus died, God also heard what Jesus prayed in John 17 over His disciples and those that will believe in Him thousands of years down the line. And all the promises of God in Christ Jesus are Yea, and Amen. Glory to God! This is a form of His intercession today. What He prayed thousands of years ago, is manifesting and will continue to manifest in our lives, and in the lives of those that will believe in Him years down the line.

Another form of Jesus intercession for us is seen in the priestly ministry?

Because Jesus is our High Priest (Hebrews 4:14), we get a picture of what happens when we pray by our understanding of what the high priest in the Old Testament did with the burnt offering of a bird (Leviticus 1:14 -17).

The birds brought to the high priest are a picture of our prayers “flying” to the Lord Jesus, because we pray to the Father in Jesus’ name. Now, just as the high priest removes the bird’s feathers after killing it, Jesus removes all that is superfluous and unclean from our prayers, such as unbelief and self-centeredness.

Then, just as the high priest offers the bird as a burnt sacrifice, a sweet aroma to the Lord, Jesus our High Priest adds His perfection, beauty, excellence and fragrance, which the Father so delights in, to our prayers. That is how He presents our prayers to the Father. That is how He lives to make intercession for you in this case. Glory to God!

Beloved, this intercession also happens when you pray in the Holy Ghost! I remember as a young boy, I was sick and tired of life, I felt like dying, I knew full well that if I did, I would go to heaven my true home! So I wanted to talk to God about it in tongues, and when I did, I knew what I said in tongues was different from what was in my mind. Guess what? I was healed. Glory to God! And I have been in divine health for many years now.

You don’t have to run to a church leader to get him to pray “more powerfully” for you. You can pray yourself. Then, take advantage of Jesus’ intercession for you and pray in the Holy Ghost. For he that speaks or prays in the Holy Ghost, gives thanks or prays the right way. Another form of intercession that we see in scriptures are that the Blood of JESUS keeps on keeping on speaking good things over you and me. Halleluiah!

Say this with me: THE BLOOD OF JESUS KEEPS ON KEEPING ON SPEAKING GOOD THINGS OVER ALL THAT CONCERNS ME AND MY FAMILY.

And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has nowhere to lay His head”’ (Matthew 8:20; KJV).

I find this statement to be beautiful. Let me tell you why. In the original Greek text, the word for ‘lay’ in the above scripture is a very unique one. It is ‘KLINO.’ The only other place it was used in reference to Jesus was when He rested His head on the cross; ‘so when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit’ (John 19:30; KJV).

The bible says, ‘and bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.’ The Greek word translated as ‘bowing’ here is ‘*KLINO*’. Beloved, this means that it was only at the Cross that the Son of Man finally found a place to rest His Head. Jesus found His rest in loving us and sacrificing Himself for us.

THOUGHT LINE: because Jesus KLINO on the cross; I have all the best things of this life.

Beloved, He found rest in dying for you and me and in giving us life: the very life of Yahweh which is given to those who believe in Him. Jesus found His rest in absorbing all your sins – past, present, and future – and thus, He gave you and me His divine righteousness! What a divine exchange that happened at the cross of Jesus Christ! (See; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

Friend, your Savior found His true rest while He screamed, ‘My God! My God! Why hast thou forsaken me?’ He found rest in those three hours of darkness on the cross, while He absorbed all your sicknesses, poverty, bondage and negativities. He found absolute rest in dying in our place – the Just for the unjust. And He, through His finished works, has given you to enjoy the best things of life in abundance.

Say this with me: BECAUSE MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST TOOK MY PLACE ON THE CROSS, GOD IS FOR ME TODAY; GOD IS FOR ME TOMORROW; GOD IS FOR ME FOREVER!

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit’ (John 19:30; KJV).

The bible says, ‘and bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.’ The word rendered as ‘bowing’ here is the Greek word ‘*KLINO*’. The only other place it is used in reference to Jesus was when Jesus told a potential disciple that, ‘Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head’(Matthew 8:20:KJV). The word ‘lay’ here is the same Greek word KLINO.

Beloved, the King of Glory, before the cross, said He had no place to rest His Head on. He is the word made flesh. Without Him nothing could have been made. He created the universe, including the foxes with their holes and birds with their nests. Nevertheless, for Him, the cross was the only place He found to rest on–KLINO  - for the first time.

THOUGHT LINE: Jesus rested (KLINO) at the Cross to give you the superior and super-abundant Zoe life.

My dear, for Jesus to have KLINO at the cross shows that the reason He did not KLINO before the cross was that He so loved and loves you and me. Thus when He said, ‘the Son of Man has nowhere to lay (KLINO) His head,’ and later we see Him, at the Cross, ‘bowing (KLINO) His head, He gave up His spirit,’ clearly shows us that Jesus was saying to us; ‘I will not rest until I shall have solved the sin, sickness and poverty problem for you on the cross!’Jesus was saying; ‘my meat is to do my Father’s will.’ And His Abba's will was to give His Son, Jesus - Heaven's best - on the cross, as the sacrifice that takes away the sin of humanity! He was saying; ‘my true rest will be found in the divine exchange!’

Beloved, this divine exchange took place at the cross – He took your place and gave you His own place! He died and gave you Zoe (life). He took the Psuche life (natural life) away and gave them that believed in Him the Zoe life!

This Zoe life is the very life of God! This life is not subject to sickness, death or poverty! This life is superior in quality and super-abundant in quantity! In Christ you have Zoe!

Say this with me: I HAVE ZOE! I HAVE THE LIFE OF GOD IN ME! THUS, I MANIFEST VITALLY THIS SUPERNATURAL AND SUPERIOR LIFE IN MY FINANCES, HEALTH, FAMILY AND ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN JESUSNAME!

…Behold all things are become new’ (2Corinthians 5:17).

The Bible instructs the new creature in 2 Corinthians 5:17 to behold that all things have been made new. The word ‘behold’ is akin to the Hebrew word ‘Chazah,’ which means, ‘to see with the eyes of a prophet.’

Thus, God is saying to us His kids, ‘see with the eyes of a prophet that you now have Zoe; see with the eyes of the Spirit that you have been made righteousness, and that through the finished works of Christ your sins have been forgiven–past, present and future!’

Dearly beloved, Chazah that you have all the things you will ever need or desire. Chazah that the Psuche man is dead and that you are now the Zoe Man. CHAZAH THAT ALL THINGS HAVE BEEN MADE NEW!

The Psuche life is the old life that was subject to sin, sicknesses, death, failure, negativities, addictions, curses, poverty, natural circumstances and evil. And any man outside of Christ, who has not been made a new creature lives within this psuche-cycle. But the new creature in Christ is out of that cycle once and forever. Everything about him has been made anew, and God says to see it that way – that all things have been made completely new forever.

THOUGHT LINE: by seeing that all things about you have been made new, you see as God sees – with the eyes of the Spirit.

See with the eyes of a prophet that you are not the poor trying to be rich; rather, you are the rich discovering your inheritance. See with the eyes of the Spirit that you are not the sick or weak in need of health, but rather, the healthy and strong in Christ growing every day in Him. Chazah that Christ is your wisdom, sanctification, justification and your wealth! You own the world!

Say this with me: I CHAZAH THAT ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW! I CHAZAH THAT A NEW WAVE OF WEALTH AND INCREASE HAS COME TO ME NOW! I CHAZAH THAT I AM GREATLY BLESSED, HIGHLY FAVOURED, AND DEEPLY LOVED BY ABBA!

When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, depart from me; for I am a sinful man O Lord’ (Luke 5:8).

Jesus blessed Peter with a boat sinking, net-breaking load of fish, and when Peter saw God’s goodness, he bowed down at Jesus’ feet and said, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” Now, pay close attention here. Which came first- Peter's repentance or the goodness of God? Clearly, it was the goodness of God that came first.

My dear, it’s truly the goodness of God that leads to repentance. Preach the goodness of God and allow the goodness of God to lead people to repentance. Such repentance will be true repentance; it will not be motivated by fear, judgment and indignation. It will be motivated by Abba’s Grace, His unconditional love and compassion.

True repentance from the heart comes from a revelation of God’s immense and unyielding Love. It is not found in laws, judgment and indignation. Let people come to church to enjoy God’s goodness because when they are imparted by Abba’s Grace, repentance will surely follow. “Repent” is from the Greek word “Metanoea” meaning “to change One’s mind”.

Repentance means Change your mind. Repentance happens as the word of Grace comes forth. As the preaching of the Anointed gospel of Jesus goes forth, people’s minds are been changed from their old belief that held them in Bondage to receiving the truth that liberates them.

Say this with me: I KNOW AND I BELIEVE THAT IT’S THE GOODNESS OF GOD THAT LEADS TO TRUE REPENTANCE!

And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold’ (Luke 19:8).

In Luke 18, when the law was presented to the rich young ruler in its pristine, he could not give a cent or dollar. But in Luke 19, when Zacchaeus, whom was a sinner, saw grace, He gave far much more. Halleluiah!

Zacchaeus was a corrupt tax- collector, a sinner, but instead of giving him the Law of Moses, Jesus showed Him grace and invited Himself to Zacchaeus’ house. Jesus never condemned him - He showed him the goodness and grace of God that leads to true repentance. And Zacchaeus was transformed!

The Law condemns the self- righteous, but grace will transform a sinner into a saint vitally! When you experience His grace you can't help but be generous. Like Zacchaeus, Jesus didn't ask him to give, He just gave.

Beloved, say this with me: GRACE IS A TEACHER, IT IS GRACE THAT LEADS PEOPLE TO TRUE REPENTANCE AND INWARD HEART TRANSFORMATION!

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him: and with His stripes we are healed’ (Isaiah 53:5).

Beloved, God cannot punish your sins twice. Yes, it is holy, right and just for God to punish sin; but having punished sin on the body of your Substitute, Jesus Christ, God will never demand punishment for your sins again, precisely because He is holy and just.

The wages of sin is death, that’s why Jesus had to die in your place, thus, the price for your sins He has paid. Now, live in super abounding grace, for the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thought line: The wages of sin is DEATH; that’s why Jesus died. But, the GIFT of God is eternal life, righteousness, justification, peace and joy eternally flowing towards you.

My dear, Jesus died as the wage for our sins and, consequently, eternal life has been given to us already as a free gift. God’s justice has already been executed at the cross forever, and God’s justice favors us eternally. God’s justice, today, demands that you have and enjoy all the benefits of the finished works of Christ.

Dear, because all your sins have been punished in the body of your Substitute, Jesus Christ, God’s righteousness, justification and forgiveness are eternally upon your side. By that, even when you fail, God’s grace will super abound and swallow up your failures. Now, When God looks at you, all He sees is the blood of Jesus that has made you completely righteous.

One thing about the Gospel of Grace is that it makes nothing of a man and points everything back to Jesus. Conversely, the Law always points to man: telling you that unless you do this or do that you wouldn’t have your miracle, but when Grace is preached radically, people’s lives will be radically blessed and transformed.

Say this with me: I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY WASHED, SANCTIFIED AND JUSTIFIED BY THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST.

Therefore shall ye observe all My statues, and all My judgments, and do them: I am the LORD (Leviticus 19:37).

If you want to be under the Law despite what Hebrews 8:6-13 says, please be sure to read Leviticus 19:37again. When God says ALL, He means ALL; you cannot pick and choose which Law to obey.

Under the Old Covenant, you were blessed only if you obeyed. But under the New Covenant, you and I are blessed because of Jesus’ obedience at the Cross, not as a result of our own obedience. And He obeyed perfectly.

Scriptures tell us that Jacob had two wives, Leah and Rachael. Leah is a picture of the Law. How? The name Leah means “weary” and the Law makes you weary. Jacob worked for seven years in order to be rewarded with a wife, Rachael precisely. But Leah was given to him in place of Rachael. This was possible because that she was covered with a veil and Jacob did not know it. The veil is a picture or symbol of the Law. This scene shows that the Law is essentially and structurally based on works and reward.

But in Rachael, whose name means “female sheep,” we see a picture of Grace: a picture of how we are favored today by God because Jesus the sacrificial Lamb of God took our place on the Cross. Rachael was already married to Jacob, before he worked for seven years. This means that under Grace we do right because we are already married (joined) to Christ.

THOUGHT LINE. All of God’s blessings and His righteousness in us are the outcomes of our relationship and bonding with Christ.

Say this with me: MY BASIS FOR DOING RIGHT IS THAT I AM ALREADY MARRIED TO CHRIST! NOT THAT IF I DO RIGHT I WILL BECOME HIS BRIDE! I AM ALREADY ETERNALLY HIS BRIDE! SO I AM ONE WITH HIM. FULLY LOVED AND ACCEPTED IN HIM. GLORY!

Ye are children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed’ (Acts 3:25).

We are a people of prophecy; we are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant God made to Abraham. This, to us, means that we are the ones that came forth as a result or offspring of the covenant God made with Abraham, we are the product of that covenant, and we are the true answer and manifestation of the covenant. Thus, we are not in a covenant with God, rather we are the true answer to the covenant God made with Abraham, that in his seed (i.e. through Christ, who is the true Seed) many sons (the New Creation) shall be brought to glory and all the nations of the earth, in the same process, shall be blessed.

And to be sons of the prophet, like it, means we are the product of the prophetic words spoken by the Old Testament prophets; that is to say, all the great and good things they prophesied about have been legally fulfilled in us who are in Christ. We came forth by prophecies: and now we are to vitally live out our glorious lives, which have already been written and prophesied about before we came on the scene, in the full light of the same prophetic words. Typically, the vital seasons of our lives are regulated by prophecy.

As children of the promise, we were given birth to by the Word of Promise. The life we are living now has been spoken about in the Word of Promise. God has prepared a highway for us and we have entered into it from the time we received Jesus, and we are vitally entering them even much more in the name of Jesus.

Forthtelling is speaking the WORD of God to go ahead of us before we enter into those seasons vitally in our lives. This was demonstrated when Jesus spoke a word in the presence of the centurion soldier and the word went ahead of him far faster than can be calculated, so much so that at the very moment the word was spoken (prophesied) the servant at home was healed. In this same manner, when prophecies are spoken over you, they go ahead of you; and like tracer clouds, they follow you through on the highway to there final fulfillment.

Beloved, learn to talk as one of the prophets of which you are; speak words impregnated with power targeted towards your life. Take those great words spoken concerning you, hold fast to them until they become vital realities in your life. Also, like Jesus, in the volumes of the Scriptures it’s been written concerning you that (for example)“those who dwell in Zion shall not say, I am sick, and all their sins (past, present and future) have been forgiven”(Isaiah 33:34).

The major thing about prophecy is not whether it’s foretelling or forthtelling, but that those words were released under the inspiration of the Spirit of God with dunamis (THE DYNAMIC POWER OF GOD).

WE ARE SEEDS of the eternal prophecies and promise and covenant made to them of old. We can never be at a disadvantage.

Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS HAVING AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT, PROSPERING VITALLY IN ALL THINGS AND SIDES, FAVOURED GRACIOUSLY ALL THE TIME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

O Lord! Send us around the world with the news of your saving power’ (Psalms 67:2, TLB).

What the Psalmist was crying for is what God has given to the Church on a platter of gold. However, most believers take this calling common. I have simple questions for you, now that you are born again, what are you doing with your life and the resources you have? What are you going to do with your life and the resources God deposited in you and around you?

Beloved, use it for the Gospel. Life here on earth is too short to be spent on useless things. Many Christians live beneath the potentials of their calling, but refuse to be like that. Refuse to be distracted from this call of soul winning.

When you are distracted you will most likely be praying about the wrong things. See, you don’t need to pray a powerful prayer, what you need is to pray to a powerful God, who loves you unconditionally.

Every Christian ought to be on a mission for soul winning, how much more leaders in the household of faith. You are not a leader until you are responsible. Soul winning is a responsibility received based on the revelations of Abba’s eternal love for us and sinners.

Maturity is for responsibility, it’s for Christian service. One of the ways it manifests is in soul winning. Yes! You have come unto mount Zion, the city of the living God already. Now is the time to show others how you came, and teach them how to function as ambassadors of Zion as you do the same yourself.

The harvest is plenty indeed, but the laborers are few. Beloved, become an active part of the body of Christ, become a laborers. You are a part of Christ’s body; make your part mean a lot, dear.

What will you do with your life and the resources God gave you?

Say this with me: I AM A VITAL SOUL WINNER IN THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? [2] God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? [14] For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace’ (Romans 6:1-2, 14, KJV).

IS GRACE EVER A LICENSE TO SIN? Does God’s grace give us a license to sin? Scripturally, and obviously, the answer is no. On the contrary, Romans 6:14 tells us that God’s grace is the power over sin.

But, perhaps, you might know of someone who, when confronted about his or her adulterous relationship, simply replies, as if it was a matter of fact, “Well, I’m under grace, so you can’t condemn me.” Or maybe the person has shown no desire to stop a lifestyle of sin and defends their self by saying, “God’s grace covers me.”

Beloved, as with any truth from God, there will be a minority who misunderstand and abuse God’s amazing grace. But how do we address this problem without backing away from God’s grace? What do we say to those who use grace as a license to sin? Are these people truly living under grace in the first place?

My friend, if anyone is living in sin and claims that he or she is living under grace, let me be the first to tell you that this person is not living under grace. How can he or she be when God’s Word clearly states that “sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace” (Rom. 6:14)? Based on the authority of God’s Word, a person who is under grace will not be dominated by or want to continue living in sin.

We are shown in Romans 6:14 that grace is what frees us from the dominion of sin. A revelation of grace will never produce a licentious or liberal lifestyle. On the contrary, it will set one free from all sorts of sinful lifestyles. Time and time again, our ministry has received praise reports after praise reports that have testified to this—real and personal stories of addictions supernaturally and permanently broken to the glory of God.

My friend, you may have come across erroneous interpretations of the gospel of grace that may have put doubts in your heart about hearing and receiving God’s grace. But don’t let these rob you of the treasure of the true gospel that is clearly laid out in God’s Word and of its power to set you free from a cycle of sin and defeat. Keep living the higher life.

GRACE IS THE saving power of God through the gospel which sets a man permanently and completely free from the shackles of sins. The same would not be a license for sin.

Say this with me: I AM UNDER GRACE, THEREFORE, I HAVE VITAL DOMINION OVER SIN. GLORY!

Then the servants of the king of Syria said to him, “Their gods are gods of the hills. Therefore they were stronger than we; but if we fight against them in the plain, surely we will be stronger than they’ (1 Kings 20:23).

In 1 Kings 20, we find the Syrians being defeated by the Israelites. Then, some of the Syrian king’s advisory gave the king what they thought was the reason for their defeat. They said that they had fought on the hills and lost because Israel’s God was the God of the hills. So if they were to fight the Israelites on the plains or in the valleys, they surely would win.

What an irrelevant advice! They thought that the God of Israel only helped His people up on the hills and mountains, and not down in the valleys.

Now, mountains refer to our good times, and valleys, our bad times. Some people have this idea that God is the God of our good times, but He is not there when we are going through bad times. They think that He leaves us helpless in the valleys, especially when the troubles are of our own making.

My friend, I want you to know that our God is the God of the mountains, but He is also the God of the valleys.

God the Son laid aside His crown of glory, His royal majesty and came down for us, stepping into a human body as a baby. He came down to where we were for the sole purpose of dying on the cross for our sins, so that He could bring us up to what God the Father had for us at His right hand. Jesus came down to crown us with glory and honor, to clothe us with robes of righteousness and make us His bride, sharing everything that He has with us; which is the grace of God. He came down to our valley in order to lift up us to the mountain of God’s right hand. GLORY TO GOD!

So whatever you might be going through right now, know that God is right there in your valley with you. He is holding you in His arms and carrying you through the valley. Victory is already yours. Just as the Israelites were also victorious in the valley (1 Kings 20:28–29), so will you vitally be because the God of the valleys is right there with you! And in Christ Jesus, He has already turned all your valleys into a mountain top experience.

YAHWEH IS VITALLY turning your entire valleys and miseries into mountain-top experiences.

Say this with me: MY GOD IS A GOD OF VALLEYS TOO. AND IN CHRIST JESUS, HE HAS TURNED ALL MY VALLEYS INTO A MOUNTAIN TOP EXPERIENCE!

Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For thou shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited’ (Isaiah 54:23).

My friend, prophetically, the scripture above is saying to you right now, “blessings are coming to you, prepare for them.” God is saying that “those things,” yes, those things “you have believed for, they are all yours.” Glory to God!

So what do you do when the Lord tells you that you are going to have a good future loaded with His blessings? You prepare for it! In other words, before the blessings come, before the increase comes, He wants you to enlarge the place of your tent and stretch forth the curtains of your dwellings.

For example, if you believe God for a child, start reading books on babies and preparing the baby’s room. In fact, prepare to have more than one child. Start looking for a bigger place for your family for God says, “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.” Get ready for expansion! Halleluiah!

My friend, in view of prophecies, God wants you to get ready, and expect such favor and increase in the days ahead, that “you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited” (Isaiah 54:3).

My dear, since God has prophetically declared your future as good, know that you stand only on favor ground today. Expect good things to happen to you. Expect to see the favor of God on you and your family. Expect the blessings and increase of the Lord. Expect many good days to show up in your life!

YOUR FUTURE HAS been prophetically spelled out, God’s word never falls to the ground, good and glorious it is, you can bank on it!

Say this with me: GOD HAS PROPHETICALLY DECLARED MY FUTURE TO BE GOOD AND GLORIOUS, AND GOOD AND GLORIOUS IT IS!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ’ (Ephesians 1:3).

Beloved, God does not see as we! Abraham was a childless 100-year-old man with his wife, Sarah, at 90, who, doubtless, was already dead in her womb (Genesis 17:17). Yet, God saw him and talked to him as if he were already the father of many nations.

My friend, God wants you to see the way He sees. Right now, you may see yourself going through a challenge or trial in your marriage, work, finances or health. But God sees a blessed marriage, success at work, supernatural increase in wealth and a healed body; because He tells you that you are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.

You see, God sees you in Christ. So when you see yourself in Christ, who is outside time, you step into the timeless zone. In that timeless zone in Christ, whatever needs and challenges of yours are already removed, repaired, restored or resurrected! In that timeless zone in Christ, you are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places!

SEE AS GOD SEES and vitally experience every blessing that He has already blessed you with in Christ!

Say this with me: AS A BELIEVER, I AM IN CHRIST JESUS! I SEE MYSELF IN CHRIST JESUS, AND IN CHRIST JESUS, I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY BLESSED WITH ALL BLESSINGS THAT HEAVEN HAS. GLORY TO GOD!

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you… Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid’ (John 14:27).

My dear, the night before Jesus died, He gave His peace to His disciples — “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you…” This peace was not just for His disciples, but also for us today. We have His peace!

The moment you believe in Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of Peace, He comes to live inside you. And when the Prince of Peace resides in you, every blessing that you will ever need in respect to your soundness and wholeness is already inside you.

You might say, “Pastor Gee, if this is true, then why do I still see problems in my health, finances, family and relationships?”

The answer is a troubled heart. That is why after Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you,” He added, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

A troubled and fearful heart works like fingers that clamp down hard on a water hose. The supply of water is flowing from the tap, but little or nothing is coming out at the other end of the hose. God’s ever-present supply of blessings toward you is like the water flowing freely from the tap. But you don’t see or experience the blessings when you allow your heart to be gripped by worry or fear.

So when fearful, anxious thoughts come, remind yourself of Jesus’ words: “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Even when things appear to get worse, say, “Lord, I refuse to worry about this. In the midst of all this, I see the finished work of Christ. He said, ‘It is finished!’ So my child’s healing is accomplished! My marriage is blessed! My debts are cleared! I will let not my heart be troubled by these things.”

Beloved, I cannot “let not” for you. Your family and friends cannot “let not” for you. Only you can “let not your heart be troubled.” So guard your heart from being troubled. You don’t have to guard your career, reputation, children or even health. When you guard your heart, the power of God will be released to guard everything else for you!

YOUR PART IS not to guard your life, marriage, family, job, finance and relationships; but to guard your heart from being troubled simply by believing in the power of the finished works of Christ. S you do this, you will experience the power of Jesus guarding the rest.

Say this with me: BECAUSE I HAVE THE PEACE OF THE PRINCE OF PEACE IN ME, MY HEART CAN NEVER BE TROUBLED! IN FACT, ALL THE FEAR FILES IN ME HAS BEEN ETERNALLY DESTROYED AND FOREVER EMPTIED FROM THE RECYCLE BIN. HALLELUYAH!

‘But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).

Before Jesus went back to heaven, He told His disciples to “wait for the promise of the Father” (Acts 1:4). There are thousands of promises in the Bible, so which promise was He referring to?

The early church knew which promise Jesus was referring to, because He had told His disciples, “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which you have heard Me speak about; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now (Acts 1:4-5). Jesus was referring to the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:1-4).

My dear, Jesus wants you to know the value of the promise of the Father because He said, “you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me…” He did not say, “You shall do witnessing,” but, “you shall be witnesses.” In other words, your very person will be a witness to Him!

This is because the power you receive when you are filled with the Holy Spirit is the same power that so anointed Peter that the sick were laid on the streets for his shadow to fall on them and heal them (Acts 5:15). Even handkerchiefs and aprons from Paul’s body were so saturated with the anointing of the Spirit that when they touched the sick, people witnessed diseases and evil spirits leaving the sick (Acts 19:12)!

That same power came upon me while I was still a student in secondary school, way before people got to know me as Pastor Gee, as a student, I saw deaf ears opened through me, many growths and tumors instantly disappearing while ministering to the sick and many much more. The good part is that, as people came in contact with me, their lives were changed by the power of the Holy Ghost and they became distribution centers of the power of God. Glory to God!

AS A SPIRIT-FILLED believer, you have power, the same power that the early apostles walked in, God gave it to you. USE IT!

Say this with me: AS A BELIEVER, I HAVE POWER! GOD GAVE IT TO ME, AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE IT! I HAVE MIRACLE WORKING POWER! OH! I HAVE POWER. GLORY TO GOD!

… When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter… And the people complained against Moses saying, “What shall we drink?” So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters the waters were made sweet’ (Exodus 15:23-25).

This story is about how God turned bitter poisonous waters into sweet refreshing waters for His people when they came to a place called Marah (which means “bitterness” in Hebrew).

How did the Lord make the water sweet? He told Moses to cast a branch of a particular tree into the waters and when He did, the Bible says that ‘the waters were made sweet.’

Do you know that God’s solution then is still God’s solution now? Throw in a branch of the tree – a picture of speaking forth what the finished works of the cross of Jesus, our true Tree of life has done concerning the negative circumstance–in order to turn the bitter waters sweet.

Beloved, if today you are in the midst of bitter waters of sickness, fear, addiction, poverty, and failure, put and speak forth Jesus and His finished works into that challenge and it will become sweet and refreshing again.

The solution to that situation is not complaining, bitterness, resentment or frustration; they only aggravate it the more. But when you fix your eyes on what Jesus did for you while He hung on that tree, you find every answer to every problem. Jesus already bore them all and paid the highest price in advance to help you enjoy the glorious life under God’s grace perpetually. So go ahead and boldly speak forth what Jesus has done into that situation and enjoy your victory vitally.

THOUGHT LINE: Feeding on Jesus and His finished works and speaking forth what He has done for us via His finished works will automatically turn every bitter water into a sweet and refreshing one vitally.

Say this with me: IAM WHOM GOD SAYS I AM! I HAVE WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS I HAVE! I CAN DO WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS I CAN DO! I LIVE IN DOMINION VITALLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

… I am the LORD who heals you’ (Exodus 15:26: NKJV).

The Bible tells us that He that has seen Jesus has seen the Father. Thus, if you want to know what God is like then just look at Jesus.

If you want to know how the Father feels about healing the sick, just look at Jesus.

Jesus ALWAYS healed the sick that came to him. The blind, lame, mute, deaf and demon-possessed- He healed them ALL.

Jesus NEVER put a sickness on anybody. You’ll find Jesus often healing lepers while He was on earth, but you’ll never find Him calling anyone over and saying to the person, “you are too healthy, good-looking and rich. Receive some leprosy or poverty to learn how to be humble.”

ABBA TRULY cares and has made a complete provision for your wholeness – financial and health inclusive.

No, when a leper came to Him, uncertain that Jesus would want to heal him, Jesus, full of Compassion, told him firmly, “I am WILLING. BE HEALED.”

He ALSO multiplied bread and fish and fed the hungry thousands with twelve full large baskets still remaining AS LEFTOVERS.

That is your Jesus. That is your God. He is the Lord who heals you both today and always.

Say this with me, “MY JESUS TRUELY CARES ABOUT ME TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER! THE FINANCIAL MIRACLES AND HEALING MIRACLES HE DID IN THE WORD! HE IS VITALLY DOING MUCH MORE IN ME AND THROUGH ME NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS. AMEN!”

“Jesus said to him, if you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).

Mark 9:23 has been traditionally taught to mean that you can have your miracle if YOU can believe. If you can’t believe, then Jesus isn’t going to give you your miracle.

But if you study the Greek structure of the verse, it’s actually saying, “can you believe that all things are possible to Him (Jesus) who always believes?”

I REST vitally upon the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.

That makes a whole world of difference. It’s not about how well or how much you can believe, but WHO you believe in. JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHOSE FAITH IS ALWAYS CONSTANT AND NEVER WAVERS. His faith never fails. And if you can believe that all things are possible to Jesus who never doubts, never wavers, then you are already on your way to receiving your miracle vitally.

Having this understanding really goes a long way to settle the struggle for believing in the hearts of many believers. Conventionally, so many believers have been inculcated with the attitude that they need to always struggle to believe God for everything. This has a way of placing the demands on the believer’s effort and personal struggle. But thank God that the demands have been placed fully on the One who always believes and never wavers, all I have to do now is to keep resting and placing my confidence on His never-wavering faith. Glory to God!

Beloved, have faith not in your faith, but in Him who always believes and wants to do good to you!

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ANYTHING I WILL EVER NEED OR DESIRE IN LIFE!

Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction’ (Mark 5:34).

Beloved, Jesus is pleased when you take from Him. In the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, you could say that the woman sneaked up behind the back of Jesus and “stole” her healing. But was Jesus offended? Not at all! In fact, He was so pleased with her boldness that He just had to meet her.

Jesus did not seek her out for a rebuke. No, He sought her out so that He could affirm her with His love and assure her that He wasn't angry with her for having taken a portion of healing virtue from Him. That's why He even called her "daughter," and then encouraged her to walk in her healing- "Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."

THOUGHT: Draw near to your loving Savior and Friend in full assurance and confidence that He will not condemn or reject you, but that only love for you causes his heart to beat and courses through his eternal veins.

Whoa! This is all getting so interesting! When you would have just expected a pharisaic chastisement from your Savior, He even goes on to commend your faith and cheer up your heart. How lovely – “laughs out loud”!

Beloved, that’s the heart of your Savior towards you. He wouldn’t speak condemnatory wrathful words to you (even when you might seem to have been in an error). He did not come into the world to condemn, but that through Him the world might receive salvation from sin.He will freely give His healing virtue to anyone who will take it from Him. So reach out and take from Him right now and bring pleasure to His Heart.

Say this with me: I VITALLY RECIEVE MY HEALING, HEALTH AND WHOLENESS TODAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! BEGINNING FROM NOW, I VITALLY LIVE IN THE PLACE THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST HAS BROUGHT ME INTO, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

… And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all’ (Matthew 12:15).

It didn’t matter who they were or what kinds of past these people had. As long as they sought Him for healing, Jesus healed them all gladly and graciously. He never asked them what they had done or not done, or if they had repented. He never asked them to sign a pledge to follow Him and never to tell anyone that He would not heal them because they deserve to be sick.

THOUGHT: When you approach Jesus, always come as you are. Don’t consider your shaky faith, thought life, actions or inaction. Always rest upon His graciousness. Draw from His boundless and vast wealth of strength for yourself and don’t try to depend on your efforts. His highest joy and fulfillment is to release His goodness and grace upon you freely. So always feel free to receive from Him.

Surely, none of them were perfect in their thought life or behavior. Surely there were some who came to Him without strong faith. Yet, all this didn’t matter to Jesus. All that mattered to Him was that they had been suffering and needed to be healed or set free.

Beloved, see this compassionate Savior when you come to Him for healing. He puts no demand and conditions on you. He simply wants you healed and whole vitally. He wants you to take from Him freely.

Say this with me: JESUS TOOK ALL SICKNESSES AND NEGATIVITIES ON THE CROSS FOR ME! AND NOW, I AM FOREVER FREE TO LIVE IN HEALTH AND WHOLENESS TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

‘Thus saith the Lord: ‘because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all these great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord’ (1Kings 20:28).

Nothing could be further from the truth. In 1 Kings 20, the Syrian king was told that Syria had fought Israel on the hills and lost because Israel’s God was the God of the hills. So if they fought the Israelites in the valleys, they would win. Of course, the misinformed Syrians lost again because God is a God of the valleys too.

My friend there’s nowhere you can go where you will not be covered by God’s mercy and grace. Whether you are in the pink of health or terribly paled with illness in the valley of the shadow of death, He is with you and will never leave you nor forsake you. So don’t lose hope. The God of the valleys is your strength, He will uphold you with His righteous right hand vitally, and transform you for good.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth’ (3John 1:2).

I know you must have heard this before, “sometimes God is angry with us, sometimes He is happy, sometimes He blesses us, and sometimes He can curse us. Today, He can prosper us, but sometimes He might give us poverty to humble us. Yes, He heals, but sometimes He can give us sickness or break our bones to teach us a lesson. Yes of course He forgives all sins, but you still have to bear the consequences for your sins.” Welcome to schizophrenic Christianity! If this is what you have taught or believed, then why did Jesus die?

Schizophrenic Christianity is the result of mixture. Being schizophrenic describes someone who is characterized by mutually contradictory or inconsistent elements. My friend, God is not schizophrenic. God has blessed us already and He blesses us vitally not because we are good, but because He is good. Grace is based on His faithfulness and goodness towards us and not our works!

GOD IS NOT does not bless and curse believers based on their actions or inactions. He has blessed us with His fullness forever, because of the sacrifice of Christ and will never curse us no matter what.

And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man…’ (Genesis 39:2).

The Lord was with Joseph and he was a successful and prosperous man. God’s definition of success or prosperity is contrary to the world’s definition.

This world’s system measures success or prosperity based on what you have done, what you have accomplished and what you have accumulated. To them, it’s based entirely on you focusing all your time, energy and resources in meriting titles and collecting accomplishments.

Genesis 39:2 above clearly shows us that success or prosperity is not what you have, but rather who you have and who you have become because of the finished works of Christ.

Joseph literally had nothing materially, but at the same time he had everything, because the Lord was with Him. As a believer material things don’t make you a success or prosperous, the presence of the Lord in your life has already made you an eternal success and prosperous. Thus, by your birth in Christ, you are a success. Prosperity is your nature.

Beloved, in Christ, you are already a success and prosperous. Now that you have Jesus in your life, you are no longer trying to be a success or prosperous; you are a success. You are prosperous now.

Saving you was Jesus’ job description. And He did a good job at that. Today, whatever the challenge or circumstances, whatever crisis you are in, physically, financially or emotionally, Jesus has saved you already from it. Declare your victory in the Name of Jesus and receive vitally what is already yours.

ASARESULT of our New Birth in Christ, we have become eternally successful and prosperous.

“…Behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine…” (Acts 5:28).

There’s an anointing for the market place and there is an anointing for what God sent you to do. Typically, the anointing of the Spirit of God in us is multipurpose (multidimensional). Your job might be in a bank, school, or you might just be a student, but God has a higher calling for you in that place, and that’s His purpose for you there. So, there is your job and there is your purpose, those are two distinct qualities. There is a reason God has placed you in that place and that’s for the kingdom seek and for kingdom reasons. Let it be said of you like the disciples in the above scripture, that “…Behold, you have filled this city, or sector, or company, or office etc. with the values and culture of your kingdom…”

We have been called to impose the culture of the kingdom on the market place and every other place we find ourselves. Beloved, the blessings of God are upon you and it’s a spiritual thing. You are to bring the blessing to your job or market place and not the other way round of expecting your ‘blessings’ from the job. You are to go to the market place to manifest the blessing you carry and not as the needy who works to feed from hand to mouth and just get by with life.

Jesus was a carpenter, but he was never called a carpenter, but the Son of God. Paul was a tent marker at a point, but he was described as an apostle simply because they gave emphasis on their purpose. Are you job-description-minded alone in that office of yours? Are you fulfilling the purpose of God for you in that place? Give emphasis on your purpose and people will know and describe you by your purpose. Let what God sent you to the market place for be what defines you.

Beloved, know that your promotions, wealth, contracts, and businesses are for the kingdom seek. So, let it be said of you that every time you say “the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places,” God on high is also saying “the lines of My kingdom are falling in pleasant places,” because of His purpose in you.

WE HAVE BEEN made sons of the Father for and with a higher purpose. It’s not for anything earthly. It’s absolutely heavenly and kingdom-based.

Say this with me: I AM A ZIONITE, ANOINTED WITH THE DEW OF HEAVEN! I AM ONE OF THOSE THAT HAVE IMPOSED THE CULTURE AND VALUES OF THE KINGDOM IN THE MARKET PLACE WHILE I VITALLY MANIFEST THE BLESSING THERE, IN JESUSNAME.

Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life’ (Genesis 45:5).

Just like Joseph in the scripture above, don’t linger in past hurts. Move forward. Joseph was more conscious of the purpose of God than what had happened between him and his brothers, and of the fact that because the Lord was with him, he became a successful man vitally. Beloved, in Christ, the same Lord who was with Joseph now lives in you in His fullness and in an even higher dimension of glory, how then can you fail another day in your life? That’s not possible! For greater is He that is in you than any challenge in the world that you get to face.

In Christ, your job is not the blessing, the blessing is a spiritual thing that you carry like Jacob, who left home with just a staff, and yet came back with far more wealth than Esau who inherited all the physical blessings of Isaac. Even Laban testified that the Lord had been blessing him because of Jacob. Today, the same way Laban was lucky to have had Jacob, your class mates, co-workers and the market places are favored because of your presence there.

In your office, you might not hold a seat among the top managements, but because of your presence there everything will keep working fine. In your business domain, you there as a blessing to your world. You are the blessed. Those who bless you are blessed. Those who help you help, in so doing, do themselves a great favor too.

Now that you understand how important and indispensable you are to your world, you must not be lazy or ineffective in fulfilling purpose. As you now know that the lives of millions depend upon your role practically. Build more capacity than your job description requires. Build carrying capacity for mighty tasks in the marketplace as well. And be innovative and creative. Infuse everything you do with the power of God’s Spirit; that makes all the difference. This way, you might be doing the same things as others, but because yours has oil poured upon it, it will greatly expand and yield much more results.

Pour oil (power) on your job, academics, relationships, presentations, projects, kids, and everything that concerns you. The same way pastors keep planting churches and spreading across cities and nations, is the same way GOD wants your business to expand even as you feed on the Word in Church and receive impartations through ministry gifts.

BE CONSCIOUS OF your spiritual (higher) purpose for being where you are now, and learn to handle your business from the spiritual ground–your greatest point of advantage.

Say this with me: THE BLESSINGS OF THE LORD ARE UPON MY HEAD, AND ALL THIS BLESSINGS ARE VITALLY SEEN IN ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Ye are children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed’ (Acts 3:25).

We are a people of prophecy; we are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant God made to Abraham. This, to us, means that we are the ones that came forth as a result or offspring of the covenant God made with Abraham, we are the product of that covenant, and we are the true answer and manifestation of the covenant. Thus, we are not in a covenant with God, rather we are the true answer to the covenant God made with Abraham, that in his seed (i.e. through Christ, who is the true Seed) many sons (the New Creation) shall be brought to glory and all the nations of the earth, in the same process, shall be blessed.

And to be sons of the prophet, like it, means we are the product of the prophetic words spoken by the Old Testament prophets; that is to say, all the great and good things they prophesied about have been legally fulfilled in us who are in Christ. We came forth by prophecies: and now we are to vitally live out our glorious lives, which have already been written and prophesied about before we came on the scene, in the full light of the same prophetic words. Typically, the vital seasons of our lives are regulated by prophecy.

As children of the promise, we were given birth to by the Word of Promise. The life we are living now has been spoken about in the Word of Promise. God has prepared a highway for us and we have entered into it from the time we received Jesus, and we are vitally entering them even much more in the name of Jesus.

Forthtelling is speaking the WORD of God to go ahead of us before we enter into those seasons vitally in our lives. This was demonstrated when Jesus spoke a word in the presence of the centurion soldier and the word went ahead of him far faster than can be calculated, so much so that at the very moment the word was spoken (prophesied) the servant at home was healed. In this same manner, when prophecies are spoken over you, they go ahead of you; and like tracer clouds, they follow you through on the highway to there final fulfillment.

Beloved, learn to talk as one of the prophets of which you are; speak words impregnated with power targeted towards your life. Take those great words spoken concerning you, hold fast to them until they become vital realities in your life. Also, like Jesus, in the volumes of the Scriptures it’s been written concerning you that (for example)“those who dwell in Zion shall not say, I am sick, and all their sins (past, present and future) have been forgiven”(Isaiah 33:34).

The major thing about prophecy is not whether it’s foretelling or forthtelling, but that those words were released under the inspiration of the Spirit of God with dunamis (THE DYNAMIC POWER OF GOD).

WE ARE SEEDS of the eternal prophecies and promise and covenant made to them of old. We can never be at a disadvantage.

Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS HAVING AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT, PROSPERING VITALLY IN ALL THINGS AND SIDES, FAVOURED GRACIOUSLY ALL THE TIME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel’ (tMatthew15:22-24).

How you see Jesus affects the way you vitally receive; your receiving is contingent on your perception of Jesus and His finished works. How you see Jesus Christ, is how you will receive. For example, the centurion of whom scriptures says had great faith, he himself never said, “I have great faith.”

His estimation of Jesus was large, His estimation of Jesus Christ was huge, look at what He said to Jesus, “speak a word and my servant at home will be healed.” And yet he was not a Jew.

Jesus said that this man had great faith. He came to receive as one not under the law! He was a Gentile, thus, he came to receive based on his estimation of Jesus Christ in His Grace and not based on his obedience of the Law. And Romans 4 says, “It is of faith that it might be by Grace.”

In our opening scripture, the Canaanite woman knowing that Jesus came for the house hold of Israel, came at first pretending to be a Jew, Jesus then told her,“ healing is the children’s bread,” and that He would not take the Children’s bread and give to puppies.”

However, when she saw herself as she was, a Gentile (dog/puppy), and at the same time, she saw the supply in Jesus, estimating Him huge in His Grace, she said, “but the puppies eat from the crumbs that fall from the children’s table, and the crumbs are more than enough for me.” Then Jesus screamed at her, “O woman! Great is your faith!”

Beloved, how do you see Jesus Christ and His finished works? It is of faith that it might be by Grace. If it is works, it’s no more Grace but rewards, and if it’s based on Grace, then it’s through faith.

LET YOUR ESTIMATION of Jesus and His finished works be huge.

Say this with me: I SEE JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORKS IN ALL THAT CONCERNS ME! I ESTIMATE HIS FINISHED WORKS HUGELY IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place’ (Psalms 66:12).

My dear, when God told the children of Israel about the land of Canaan, it wasn’t a type of heaven! Canaan is a type of our wealthy place in Christ; it is a type of the life that God has designed for us as His children here on earth. Canaan couldn’t possibly have been heaven because there was sin in Canaan and we know that there is no sin in heaven!

In John 10:10, Jesus says “….I came so they can have REAL and ETERNAL life, MORE and BETTER life than they ever DREAMED of” (MSG). Jesus has come to give you something better than the ‘Canaan’ or ‘dream’ life that you ever wanted. As a child of God, you already have that life in you!

Dearie, Jesus didn’t die for our sins alone, praise God He did, but along with the forgiveness of sins, He has given us the good life. Some have called this, ‘bread and butter’ Christianity, but that is exactly the truth. Hebrews 6:9 says, “But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and THINGS THAT ACCOMPANY SALVATION, though we thus speak.” My friend, There are better things that accompany salvation. Healing, prosperity, abundance, protection, preservation, favour and promotion are all things that accompany salvation from sins. Your wealthy place is all inclusive and not exclusive of these things! Moses told the children of Israel, “GOD is about to bring you into a good land, a land with brooks and rivers, springs and lakes, streams out of the hills and through the valleys. It’s a land of wheat and barley, of vines and figs and pomegranates, of olives, oil, and honey. It’s land where you’ll never go hungry—always food on the table and a roof over your head. It’s a land where you’ll get iron out of rocks and mine copper from the hills. After a meal, satisfied, bless GOD, your God, for the good land he has given you (Deuteronomy 8:7-10).”

The reason some believers don’t enjoy this good life is because they are depending on their own efforts, their job, their certificate or even connection instead of God. It is God that has brought you into this land and as such you have to keep your eyes constantly on Him and expect good everyday! It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to work or do your business’ it simply means to trust Him in all things.

Beloveth, When your eyes are not on God, men will ride over your head which is symbolic of always being bound by the systems of this world – living on your salary, coming behind on your bills and constantly broke and disgusted. When you learn to trust God daily, you will experience and enjoy your wealthy place vitally! God has brought you into a wealthy place, a place of abundance and great supply of anything that you desire. Keep your eyes on Him and begin to receive today.

Say this with me: I BOLDLY DECLARE THAT I’M IN MY WEALTHY PLACE VITALLY. I AM LIVING THE GOOD LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS! I RECEIVE AND ENJOY EVERYTHING THAT IS MINE IN CHRIST JESUS TODAY!

Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver’ (Job 22:25).

My dear, The world is getting more violent and deadly as men surrender themselves to the control of Mammon. The systems of this world are failing in spite of advancements in knowledge, science and technology. As Christians, we need not buckle under this pressure.

The good news is that God still has His hooks in the jaws of the nations. Great peace has the man whose defence the Almighty is. God is our Refuge (Hebrews 6:18). But how can we vitally experience this dimension of God in our daily lives? I will tell you how.

The Hebrew word used for ‘defence’ in Job 22:25 is also used for ‘gold’ in the preceding verse i.e. Job 22:24; “Then shalt thou layup GOLD as DUST, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.” Beloveth, let God be your Gold! How? Regard money as dust.

My friend, Let money lose its value in your eyes. Let money become your servant in advancing the kingdom of God. Jesus said that you can’t serve God and Mammon , you will esteem one and despise the other (Matthew 6:24). Choose to despise Mammon and esteem God in your life. Have sowing goals. Decide to take your giving to the next level.

Dearie, since the word “defence” was also translated to “gold” see what the scripture now says “Yea, the Almighty will be your Gold and you will have plenty of silver (money).” Some believers are bothered that they don’t have a burden for souls and for the things of the kingdom. It may be because they don’t invest their money in these matters. Jesus said that, “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:21).

Your treasure might not be where your heart is but your heart will always be where your treasure (money) is. Stretch and be spent for the kingdom. It may be inconvenient now but it won’t be for long; for THE GOD OF ALL GRACE will ultimately STABLISH, STRENGTHEN and SETTLE YOU (1 Peter 5:10).

Say this with me: I AM RICH. GOD HAS BECOME MY GOLD BECAUSE I REGARD AND TREAT MONEY AS DUST! MONEY IS MY SERVANT IN ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD. I DON’T SERVE MAMMON, I SERVE GOD WITH MAMMON. I HAVE SOWING GOALS AND I TAKE MY GIVING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:19).

My dear, often we misquote this scripture as, “But MY God shall supply all MY (instead of your) need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Paul was telling his partners that ‘his’ God will supply their needs because they were in partnership with him in spreading the gospel! (Philippians 1:3-7)

The Philippian church was made up of different people from different professions. Among those in this church was Lydia the fabric merchant, the girl that had been delivered from demon possession and the household of the jailer (Acts 16:12-34). All the people in this church gave to Paul’s ministry to help in the spread of the gospel! Paul wanted them to know that partnership wasn’t God’s way of taking anything from them; rather it was God’s way of supplying their needs. God isn’t a God of demand; He is a God of supply!

My friend, when you feel God is demanding something from you, you will not derive the maximum joy and pleasure of giving to the gospel. When you feel impressed in your heart by the Holy Spirit to give to a ministry, know that God is drawing you to a consciousness of the great supply that He has for you.

When you give to a minister or ministry, it is actually seen by God as a sweet smelling odor, an acceptable sacrifice that is well pleasing to Him (Philippians 4:18). As lives are changed, there is abundant supply in your life!

Beloved, When God sent the Prophet Elijah to the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17:8, it was because He had supply on His mind. He was not going to take anything away from the woman. This woman needed a miraculous supply because she and her son were dying of lack. When the woman yielded what she had by giving to the prophet, the bible says she had to eat for many days (1 Kings 17:15). This was supernatural supply!

When you give, God supplies His grace. 2 Corinthians 9:8 says, “And God is able to make all grace (very favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].”

The grace of God is what causes people to favour you. The grace of God will cause your proposal to be considered over that of others, give you jobs you don’t merit, save you from natural disasters and accidents and deliver you from epidemics! The supply of His grace brings everything that you need. I encourage you to perceive God’s instruction as a means of Him supplying your needs rather than taking away from you! Yield what you have today to God and trust Him because God has got supply on His mind.

Say this with me: I AM A RICH RIGHTEOUS, FEARLESS GIVER! I AM YIELDED TO GOD’S SPIRIT AND I GIVE MY SEEDS TO THE PROPAGATING OF THE GOSPEL. I DECLARE THAT ALL MY NEEDS ARE MET IN THE SUPPLY OF GOD’S GRACE.

It is vain for you to rise up early, to take rest late, to eat the bread of  [anxious] toil—for He gives [blessings] to His beloved in sleep’ (Psalm 127:2; AMP).

Jesus taught in Mark 4, “….The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and Should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. (Mark 4:26, 27) The kingdom of God operates by rest because when you rest God works.

My dear, All that is required of you is just to put God’s Word – God’s promises – in your heart. We scatter seeds by hearing and meditating on what Jesus has done for us. His finished works has brought you into health, wealth, wholeness, righteousness and deliverance. Put God’s Word in your heart and go to sleep. It is not your business how that seed will grow and sprout! That’s entirely God’s business.

My friend, When you put God’s Word in your heart and go to rest without worrying and toiling and calculating in your mind, God through that Word in your heart will begin to cause things to happen and release His wisdom to you. The Psalmist said, “… He (God) gives [blessings] to His beloved in sleep.” (Psalm 127:2 AMP)

Glory to God! When you rest or sleep in God’s Word, the blessing could come in the form of angelic manifestations like in the case of Peter who was to be killed the following day but was comfortably asleep in a prison (Acts 12:1-11). God’s blessings can also be in the form of God laying your burden in the hearts of others. Mordecai was to be hung on a stake because he refused to bow to a man by the name Haman who hated the Jews! The night before the execution, King Ahasuerus could not sleep in his cozy royal bedroom. He went to his library and of all the books in the royal library, he read the book that chronicled how Mordecai had saved him from an assassination attempt and went unrewarded.

Dearie, While Mordecai was asleep God was working on his behalf. Though Haman was planning on hanging him, God was prevailing on the king to reward him and set him up for a promotion (Esther 5&6). Quit worrying about that situation today and put God’s Word in your heart and declare it with your mouth. Declare concerning that situation, “It is all working for my good! I’ve got the victory because of Jesus! His favour is profusely abounding towards me, Glory!!!” If you are awake at night, it should be because you are communing with your Father not worrying. Rest in God’s love today and go to sleep and watch God work for you.

Say this with me: WHAT A LIFE OF EASE, WHAT A LIFE OF GRACE! I DON’T HAVE TO WORRY OR   FRET BECAUSE MY FATHER HAS GOT ALL THINGS UNDER CONTROLALL ABBA DOES ARE WORKING FOR MY GOOD! I RECEIVE BLESSINGS UPON BLESSINGS TODAY. GLORY!

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him’ (Acts 10:38).

God’s nature is to heal. Jesus did not walk on water all the time, He did not calm storms all the time though He could do that all the time, but He healed all. In Exodus, over 2.5 million Israelites left Egypt healed, healthy and whole. That was, and still is, God’s will for His people today—all healed, healthy, and whole.

Beloved, partaking of the Lord’s body brings healing. You might be surprised to know that the Bible gives one, and only one, (major) reason Christians are weak, sick and die prematurely. 1 Corinthians 11:29-30. In vs. 30, Paul said, “for this reason” not “reasons”, He was pointing to a singular reason. The reason the Corinthians became weak and sick was their failure to discern the Lord’s body. Thus, if we discern the Lord’s body we will walk in His health and wholeness and live long.

The Holy Communion and the revelation of Jesus and His finished works will add years to our lives and Life to our years. When God’s people are correctly taught about how healing is dispensed at the Lord’s Table, health and wholeness will follow. It will add years to our lives and Life to our years.

The wine, which is His blood, is for our forgiveness, and the bread, which is His body, is for our health (healing and wholeness).

When you partake of the wine, know that you are forgiven and have been made righteous.

The bread–Jesus established that Bread, which is His body–is for our healing. Healing is the children’s bread. Mark 7:26-30. In healing, deliverance takes place, JESUS actually considered deliverance as a part of healing. He saw oppression as sickness that needed healing.

The same anointing that heals the sick will cast out devils, thus, in the bread, as healing takes place, deliverance automatically takes place as well.

Jesus’ body was so filled with life that even His clothes were soaked with His health.The woman with the issue of blood was healed by touching His garment. If the hem of His garment could be soaked with His health, can you imagine His body?

Say this with me: GOD’S WILL FOR ME TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER, IS ALL ROUND HEALING, HEALTH AND WHOLENESS! I BELIEVE HIS WILL AND I HAVE A VITAL MANIFESTATION OF THESE THINGS IN MY LIFE NOW IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

‘He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes’ (Psalms 105:37).

Over 2.5 million Israelites left Egypt healed, healthy and whole. That was and still is God’s will for His people today—all healed, healthy, and whole. Matthew 8:17 tells us that Jesus healed all “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” The final fulfillment of this prophecy by prophet Isaiah, however, happened on the Cross of Calvary, where Jesus died for us.

The Matzah (a flat bread eaten by the Jews during the Passover) is a good object lesson of what Jesus’ body symbolizes. According to the Law, the bread was to be unleavened, baked, pierced with holes and stripped.

Unleavened bread is one made without the leaven (yeast).

No leaven was used because leaven in the Bible represented sin, and Jesus is the perfect, sinless Son of God. And His sinlessness is why He is able to take our sins upon himself in our place.

Unleavened bread is a picture of Jesus’ holiness, purity, and sinlessness. His life and sacrifice were unleavened.

Leaven is a symbol of death and decay. The rise of dough is only possible by means of the natural process of decay caused mostly by yeast. Therefore, if Adam had not fallen, there would have not been anything known today as the leaven bread. Nonetheless, what Adam activated to the downfall of the entire human race has now been completely dealt with in and by the sacrifice of Jesus. (We are to humbly receive what Jesus has done).

The bread is also called “the bread of humility,” “the bread of affliction”or “the bread of humiliation.”

The baking of the bread is the picture of how Jesus’s body was burnt because the full fury of God’s wrath against our sins fell on Him. This fire was supposed to fall on us, but it fell on JESUS instead. Halleluiah!

The pierced holes and stripes on the bread is a picture of how Jesus’s side as well as His hands and legs were pierced. These holes and all of those merciless stripes He bore on His body, so that our bodies might be made whole.

Beloved, as you partake of His body during The Communion, know and believe that His body was broken so that yours can be vitally whole. When you partake in this spirit of faith, something happens to your body: you become strong, healthy and you get to experience long life vitally.

 

Say this with me: JESUSBODY WAS BROKEN, PIERCED AND STRIPPED FOR ME! HE BORE THE HEAT OF ALL MY SINS, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE, AND GAVE ME DIVINE LIFE! THIS ZOE LIFE IS AT WORK VITALLY IN ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS! THIS ZOE LIFE, WHICH IS SUPERIOR IN QUALITY AND SUPER-ABUNDANT IN QUANTITY IS AT WORK IN MY FINANCES, HEALTH, PROSPERITY, SUCCESS, ABUNDANCE, MINISTRY AND FAMILY IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME!

And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses’ (Matthew 8: 14-17).

The final fulfillment of this prophecy by prophet Isaiah in the scripture above happened at the Cross of Calvary, where Jesus died for us. JESUS bore not just our sins, but also our bodily weaknesses, sicknesses and pains.

According to Luke 22:15-20, it was on the day of Passover that JESUS broke bread and gave to His disciples, thus, showing us that Jesus is the true, perfect unblemished holy lamb of God. So the Passover is a type of the Lord’s Table (Communion Table).

During the first Passover, the Israelites killed the lamb and put the blood on the doorposts (Exodus 12:8-13). The blood was for the people’s forgiveness. The blood covered the people’s sins and appeased the righteous requirements of God.

They also ate the flesh of the lamb roasted in fire with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs; that gave them strength (supernatural strength, health, healing and wholeness). None of them was found feeble over the next forty years (Psalm 105:37).

If the body of a shadow lamb could bring such supernatural results, how much more the body of the true substance lamb, our Lord Jesus Christ! That holds a double cure for us in this life –forgiveness of sins plus health and wholeness (Psalm 103:2-3). Healing, like forgiveness, is not a promise. It is the blood-bought right of Christians. The same way you have been forgiven, healing is yours, thus you have been healed already. Forgiveness and healing go together. The faith that you have for forgiveness is the same faith that will bring healing vitally.

Abba has because of the Cross forgiven you. But if you don’t believe what He has done for you, you will live in guilt, fears and condemnation. The same thing goes for healing. Abba has given you health and wholeness. But if you don’t believe it, you will end up sick, weak and beggarly.

Healing through the Holy Communion can be instantaneous and it can be gradual; as you continue to partake, you will simply get better.

Say this with me: I AM STRONG, WELL, HEALTHY AND RICH, WHAT TAKES THE BEST OF MEN FIFTY YEARS TO ACHIEVE, WITHIN A VERY SHORT TIME FRAME, I AM ACHIEVING FAR MUCH MORE! IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew (proclaim) the Lord’s death till he comes’ (1Corinthians 11:25-26).

The hosts in heaven sing this song always, “worthy is the lamb that was slain.” There’s power in proclaiming the Lord’s death. The scripture above tells us that when we take The Communion, we do proclaim the Lord’s death. We proclaim to the principalities, powers and our circumstances that they have been disarmed, because Jesus triumphed over them. When you partake of the Holy Communion, you proclaim to demon spirits that Jesus reigns. This means that every demon has to flee.

Once you are a believer, you are a priest. (1 Peter 2:9). So you can partake of the Lord’s Table and even minister it to others. You do not have to be a pastor to do that. Therefore, take the Holy Communion as often as you need to. Glory to God!

Don’t be afraid to partake of the Communion. The church has somehow misconstrued the teaching of the communion table and Now, Christians say things like, “If you are unworthy, don’t partake,” or, “If you’ve got sin in your life, don’t come to the Lord’s Table or else you become weak, sick and even die prematurely.” They have made something that was meant to be a blessing to seem as a curse.

In any case, all of us who come to the Lord’s Table were once unworthy and were made worthy only by the Blood of JESUS. It is only JESUS’ death that qualified us to partake from.

When Paul said to not partake in an unworthy manner, it meant to recognize or discern that the broken body of the Lord was what was meant for our health and wholeness. Treating the Holy Communion as a ritual will make one miss out on the blessings.

Say this with me: THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS MADE ME ETERNALLY QUALIFIED TO PARTAKE OF THE LORD’S TABLE, AND AS I PARTAKE, I PROCLAIM THE LORD’S DEATH AND HIS FINISHED WORKS IN ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep’ (1 Corinthians11:28-30).

THE LORD’S SUPPER AND THE COMMUNION TABLE

The both are not the same. The Bible says that Jesus, after He had supped, took bread and broke it. Supper means dinner, it was after they had finished eating supper, that Jesus initiated the Communion Table. Thus, it’s not the Communion Table that served as their supper or dinner that night. The both are distinctly from apart.

This phrase in 1Corinthians 11:28 which reads, “Examine himself,” means that God intends for us to examine ourselves to see if we are still resting our faith in His son’s work on the Cross for us, as we partake of The Communion. While in 1 Corinthians 11:29, “Judgment or damnation” is from the Greek word “Krima,” which means “divine sentence still in motion due to Adam’s fall.”

Thus, the scripture was saying that if you partake of the Communion in an unworthy manner, as if its normal bread and wine, not discerning the Lord’s finished works through the Communion, and not taking it by faith; then, the divine sentence of Adam’s fall will still be in motion in your life and finances, even though legally you are a New Creature in Christ Jesus. Paul was telling the Corinthian Church that it’s because they are not walking in faith in the finished works of Christ that is why many of them are sick, poor and die young.

The Lord’s Table is one of the ways God helps us to vitally offset the process of ageing and walk in divine health. You can partake of the Communion Table and pronounce the benefits of the Lord’s broken body upon your family, spouse, children, business, friends, church member’s academics, contracts, projects etc. and there shall be mighty workings of miracles.

DICSERN THE Lord’s Table whenever you want to take The Communion that it was the more than enough offering that was offered for your wholeness.

Say this with me: I PRONOUNCE THE BENEFITS OF THE LORD’S BROKEN BODY UPON MY FAMILY, SPOUSE, CHILDREN, BUSINESS, FRIENDS, CHURCH MEMBERS, ACADEMICS, CONTRACTS, PROJECTS ETC. AND THERE SHALL BE MIGHTY WORKINGS OF MIRACLES VITALLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines. And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the Lord our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines. And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord: and Samuel cried unto the Lord for Israel; and the Lord heard him. And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the Lord thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel’ (1 Samuel 7: 7-10).

The Scripture above shows us how Samuel proclaimed the Lord’s death by offering a burnt offering and when He did, the Lord came like a loud thunder on the Philistine army, confusing them. This led to victory for the Israelite.

Every time the children of Israel offered a sacrifice to Yahweh, they were proclaiming the Lord’s death and the result is that things always turned in their favor. This and much more happen when we proclaim the Lord’s death through the Communion Table.

Every time you partake of the bread and wine, you declare to the principalities and powers of darkness that the Lord’s death avails for you.

Every time you partake, you are saying that because JESUS has been judged and punished in your place, you cannot be judged and punished.

You are saying that, because JESUS died young in your place, you will live long, strong, and wealthy and healthy. And because He conquered death and stripped the devil of His power, you were born victorious forever.

BY PARTAKING IN THE LORD’S TABLE, you do show forth the efficacy of the Lord’s death and that it avails for you.

Say this with me: BECAUSE MY SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST DIED YOUNG IN MY PLACE, I WILL VITALLY LIVE LONG, STRONG, WEALTHY AND HEALTHY IN JESUS NAME! HIS RESURRECTION LIFE NOW FLOWS IN ME! HALLELUIAH!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Your Prosperity is wrapped up in Jesus. God is a good father. Beloved, know in your heart that God is a good Father to you. So if you need something today, just ask him and believe that you have received it.

You are not alone in this world. You have a good heavenly Father who cares deeply about you. God so loved His son, but He so loved you too, that He was willing to give up His son for you. That’s how much He loves you.

JESUS is the apple of God’s eye, heaven’s darling son. Yet, God gave Him up for you, because that’s how much He loves you. God wants you to have His very best.

When you have JESUS, you have everything! Jesus is our wisdom, sanctification, redemption, success, prosperity and wholeness. JESUS—our ALL IN ALL—IS the Great I AM.

Beloved, JESUS is the great I AM and He says to you, “I AM to you whatever you need me to be.”

When you are fearful of the odds against you, He is your favor. When you are weak, He is your strength. When you are troubled and anxious, He is your peace. When you feel vulnerable, He is your shield. When you are lonely, He is your faithful companion. And when you sick, He is your healing and health.

See God’s love and see His abundant provisions. Beloved, believe that you are greatly, immeasurably loved by your Father (Abba) in heaven and you can’t help but see His goodness in your life vitally!

In Ephesians 1:6, the Bible tells us that “God has made us accepted in the beloved.” The beloved here refers to JESUS and the word, “accepted” also means “given special honor” or “highly favored!”

Because you have JESUS who is God’s beloved, and you are found in Him, you are also God’s beloved son or daughter deeply loved and highly favored by Him. God so loved you, He gave you His best—JESUS. And now, because you have JESUS, you have everything.

Beloved, the Lord is pleased when you are happy and healthy, enjoying you marriage, children, and career. He is pleased when you can put food on the table and have more than enough to be a blessing to the people around you.

IF YOU HAVE JESUS, you have everything. He is to you whatever you need Him to be.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth’ (3 John 1:2).

Beloved, No matter where you are, whether you are experiencing success or failure, your mindset has a lot to do with your position in life. Your thinking pattern (mindset) is formed by the words you have heard over time, words that have been planted in the garden of your heart.

My friend, every area of your life should be an expression of abundant living. However, according to our opening scripture, your life will vitally prosper to the degree that your soul prospers.

Vital prosperity in totality won’t happen if your mind doesn’t prosper.

My dear, it’s the will of God for you to prosper in every way, from your health and finances to your relationship and career. The thought you act on have the potential to change the course of your life.

Renewing the mind is necessary to change your decisions and actions. If you are born again and don’t invest the necessary time and effort in renewing your mind, your actions, thoughts and personality will still mirror that of an unsaved man or woman.

Vital areas of mind renewal include:

Believe that God has a plan and destiny for life.

Believe that God’s power within you can change any circumstance in your life.

Believe that the basis for you to see great days is what the finished works of Christ has done for you already.

Cultivate order and balance in your life by keeping your priorities in line with God’s word.

Areas to give priority to include:

Faith;

Fitness and health;

Family, love and relationships;

Fellowship and ministry;

Finance and Destiny;

Fun and

Believing that you are anointed.

 

Earn income in a career that brings you fulfillment and helps you accomplish your dreams. Of course, the best career is the one that God has chosen for you.

There is a direct connection between the words you speak and your pattern of thinking. Your thought significantly and directly impacts your path in life. It’s therefore important to renew your mind daily with God’s word. A consistent relationship with God will overflow into his divine plan for your life.

Renewing your mind is a process that you must purpose to do.

VITAL PROSPERITY IN totality won’t happen if your mind doesn’t prosper. Therefore, renewing your mind is a process that you must purpose to do.

Say this with me: THE WORD OF GOD IS BEING FORMED IN ME! THE WORD OF GOD DWELLS IN ME RICHLY IN ALL WISDOM IN THE NAME OF JESUS! I AM A WORD AND FIRE BELIEVER! I TEACH GOD’S WORD AND DESMONSTRATES THE TANGIBLE POWER OF THE HOLYGHOST IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God’ (Romans 12:2).

Beloved, CHANGE YOUR PERPECTIVE! CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

God is love, when you renew your mind, you will vitally adopt the mindset of love.

Renewing your mind is the pathway to success.

Some benefits of renewing your mind include:

You see and understand things on a higher level;

You gain understanding of your right as a child of God;

You vitally walk in dominion over defeat and live in victory;

You vitally walk in dominion over fear and live in God’s perfect love for you that cast’s all fears away;

You vitally walk in dominion over poverty and live in prosperity;

You vitally walk in dominion over sickness and live in health and

You vitally walk in dominion over negativity and live in success, wealth, wholeness, freedom and abundance.

If you want to fulfill your destiny, being born again is not just enough, you must learn how to vitally develop and operate with the mind of Christ in order to vitally create success in your life.

Vitally develop the mind of Christ as a strategy for success.

NOW THAT YOU are born again vitally develop the mind of Christ in you as a strategy for success. This is what renewing the mind is about.

Say this with me: I HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST, AND I VITALLY AND CONSCIOUSLY DEVELOP MYSELFTO MANIFEST THIS MIND IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night… For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success’ (Joshua 1:8).

Beloved, the Torah (the first five books of Moses also known as The Pentateuch) is usually read out loud by the Jews. For generations, they have read God’s Word out loud because of Joshua 1:8.“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night…”

The word “meditate” in English means to ponder. But in Hebrew, it is the word “hagah,” which means to utter or mutter under your breath. In other words, when you meditate on God’s Word, you speak forth or confess His Word instead of just giving it a mere mental assent.

My friend, hagah God’s Word by confessing verses in the areas that you have believed God for new levels. When I was a secondary school student, I confessed words like, “The Spirit of God is upon me, because He has anointed me to heal the sick and cast out devils! Asthma is been healed through me, bone conditions, cripples, ear conditions, blood diseases, eye conditions are healed through me, and the dead comes back to life through me in the Name of Jesus! I am the one God will use to get thousands filled with the Holy Ghost as a student in Jesus Name.”

While still a university student, I saw most of all these miracles happen through me! God also used me to get more than a thousand people filled with the Holy Ghost as a student. Guess what, I wasn’t a Pastor then, I was Brother Gabriel when this things happened through me! Glory to God! God made my way prosperous and full of the manifestations of the Spirit.

My dear, you might say Pastor Gee, I am waiting for God to make my way prosperous.

No, the Bible says that you will make your way prosperous when you hagah God’s Word. So speak forth verses in the areas which you want to see vital change and you will have good success vitally. Note that, the sacrifice of Jesus has already given you all things that pertain to life and godliness, our confession is only an act of faith to catapult us vitally into the things Christ and His finished works has legally given to us.

Beloved, some people have success that destroys them, you don’t see them in church anymore and their family members don’t get to see them either. That is bad success. But when you hagah God’s Word, you will vitally have good success that does not destroy you.

Now, confessing God’s Word does not move God to do things for you. It is not a formula. God had already moved when He gave up Jesus to die for you. However, when you confess His Word, it moves you from a position of doubt to faith. It moves your heart from a position of “Is it true?” to “I believe it!” When that happens, “you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success vitally”!

MAKE YOUR WAY vitally prosperous and chart up a great course for your life by your hagah (confession) of God’s Word

Say this with me: THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS UPON ME BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO HEAL THE SICK, CAST OUT DEVILS! ASTHMA IS BEEN HEALED THROUGH ME, BONE CONDITIONS, CRIPPLES, EAR CONDITIONS, BLOOD DISEASES, EYE CONDITIONS ARE HEALED THROUGH ME, AND THE DEAD ARE COMING BACK TO LIFE THROUGH ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I AM THE ONE GOD WILL USE TO GET MILLIONS FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST AS A STUDENT IN JESUS NAME!

The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man…’ (Genesis 39:2).

My dear, you may have no qualification, position or wealth—nothing in the natural. But because the Lord is with you, you will vitally end up with everything in the Name of Jesus.

Beloved, Joseph had nothing when his Egyptian master, Potiphar bought him from the slave market. Yet, even then, it was said of him, “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man…” “Joseph the slave, a successful man?”! He was nobody with nothing, not even a shirt on his back, not a dime to his name, no family members with him and no friends to turn to. All he had was the presence of the Lord. But it was precisely because of this that he was successful wherever he was. He eventually became the most powerful man in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh, who set him over all the land of Egypt. Joseph was given power, authority and riches (Genesis 41:40–44), all because the Lord was with him.

My friend, the Word of God tells us that the presence of God made the Israelites win battles, possess lands and they made the impossible possible at ease! Today, I prophesy over you, “go and make the impossible possible at ease, subdue kingdoms, shut the mouth of lions, raise the dead and enjoy the good life vitally in the Name of Jesus. For Yahweh God, is with you today, tomorrow and forever.”

Beloved, it does not matter if you are nobody with nothing in the natural. Today, I say to you that because the Lord is with you, you will vitally end up with everything in the Name of Jesus. The empowerment of YAWEH GOD is upon you, it will vitally cause you to vitally succeed, prosper and live the abundant life here and now.

THE SECRET TO vital prosperity and success in life is not qualification or any form of social advantage, but the presence of YAHWEH God!

Say this with me: THE EMPOWERMENT OF YAWEH GOD IS UPON ME! THEREFORE, I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY EMPOWERED TO SUCCEED, PROSPER AND LIVE THE ABUNDANT LIFE VITALLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For thou shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited’ (Isaiah 54:23).

My friend, prophetically, the scripture above is saying to you right now, “blessings are coming to you, prepare for them.” God is saying that “those things,” yes, those things “you have believed for, they are all yours.” Glory to God!

So what do you do when the Lord tells you that you are going to have a good future loaded with His blessings? You prepare for it! In other words, before the blessings come, before the increase comes, He wants you to enlarge the place of your tent and stretch forth the curtains of your dwellings.

For example, if you believe God for a child, start reading books on babies and preparing the baby’s room. In fact, prepare to have more than one child. Start looking for a bigger place for your family for God says, “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.” Get ready for expansion! Halleluiah!

My friend, in view of prophecies, God wants you to get ready, and expect such favor and increase in the days ahead, that “you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited” (Isaiah 54:3).

My dear, since God has prophetically declared your future as good, know that you stand only on favor ground today. Expect good things to happen to you. Expect to see the favor of God on you and your family. Expect the blessings and increase of the Lord. Expect many good days to show up in your life!

YOUR FUTURE HAS been prophetically spelled out, God’s word never falls to the ground, good and glorious it is, you can bank on it!

Say this with me: GOD HAS PROPHETICALLY DECLARED MY FUTURE TO BE GOOD AND GLORIOUS, AND GOOD AND GLORIOUS IT IS!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ’ (Ephesians 1:3).

Beloved, God does not see as we! Abraham was a childless 100-year-old man with his wife, Sarah, at 90, who, doubtless, was already dead in her womb (Genesis 17:17). Yet, God saw him and talked to him as if he were already the father of many nations.

My friend, God wants you to see the way He sees. Right now, you may see yourself going through a challenge or trial in your marriage, work, finances or health. But God sees a blessed marriage, success at work, supernatural increase in wealth and a healed body; because He tells you that you are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.

You see, God sees you in Christ. So when you see yourself in Christ, who is outside time, you step into the timeless zone. In that timeless zone in Christ, whatever needs and challenges of yours are already removed, repaired, restored or resurrected! In that timeless zone in Christ, you are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places!

SEE AS GOD SEES and vitally experience every blessing that He has already blessed you with in Christ!

Say this with me: AS A BELIEVER, I AM IN CHRIST JESUS! I SEE MYSELF IN CHRIST JESUS, AND IN CHRIST JESUS, I HAVE BEEN ETERNALLY BLESSED WITH ALL BLESSINGS THAT HEAVEN HAS. GLORY TO GOD!

A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it; whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth’ (Proverbs 17:8) .

When we see something moldy, we throw it away. But when Alexander Fleming saw his culture dishes contaminated with mold, he discovered penicillin. You see, he had a gift which prospered him.

Joseph, a Hebrew slave in Egypt, had nothing except his gift of interpretation of dreams. But look at how the gift became useful to him. It prospered him. He interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and became the most powerful man in Egypt after Pharaoh (Genesis 41).

You might say, “Pastor Gee, what if I don’t have any gift?”

Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t have any gift; for God has given each person a gift which is capable of opening doors of opportunities to him and bring in great blessings vitally. And as a believer, the deposits in your spirit are vast and beyond measure in riches and wealth.

Maybe you are just not aware of the gifts and deposits you’ve got on the inside of you, or perhaps it has profited you nothing thus far, as you have not found out how best to use it for your profiting. You need to take your gifts and calling, following the leading of the Spirit of God, cultivate it until it becomes such a powerful tool or “precious stone” that wherever you turn, you vitally prosper.

Such was the case of a church brother who was tremendously gifted in the creative arts. For a long time, he lacked the confidence and boldness to leave the security of his job as a police officer and step out on his own for what God has laid within him. But when he began to seek God’s wisdom for his situation, God gave him boldness to leave his job and go back to school to pursue the creative arts. In that school, he prospered: he became one of its top students and impressed the Head of Department so much with his creative gift that he was offered a teaching position in the school even before he graduated.

Now, please, you don’t have to go quit your job after reading this. What you should do is ask God for wisdom regarding your gift. For when the wisdom of God is added to your gift, that gift becomes “a precious stone in the eyes of its possessor; wherever he turns, he vitally prospers.”

ETERNAL LIFE (THE LIFE OF GOD) IN YOU is a vast and boundless field filled with precious abilities.

Say this with me: I HAVE GIFTS AND VAST DEPOSITS OF HIDDEN TREASURES IN ME! AND THESE TREASURES ARE MANIFESTING IN A GREATER MEASURE ALL AROUND ME, CAUSING ME TO VITALLY ENTER INTO GREATER DIMENSIONS OF WEALTH AND PROSPERITY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith’ (Romans 4:13).

God promised Abraham that he would be the heir of the world. Now, don’t be too quick to say, “Well, that promise was made only to Abraham and not me.” The verse says, “For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.” So the promise was not just made to Abraham, but to “his seed” as well, that is, you and I who belong to Christ—“And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).

Notice that God did not say that you would be the heir of the country you are living in, but heir of the world! The Greek word for “world” here is kosmos, which means the universe as well as the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments, riches, advantages and pleasures. All these are yours to inherit through the righteousness of faith in Jesus and His finished work at the cross. This righteousness is given to you as a gift from God, so you don’t have to earn it through good works.

For God to fulfill His promise, He has to prosper you. You can’t be the heir of the world and be poor or in debt! Not only that, He must keep you healthy because you can’t inherit the world when you are sick and always flat on your back.

Don’t listen to people who tell you that you will only get to enjoy these blessings when you get to heaven one fine day. Why would you need riches in heaven? There, even the streets are made of pure gold (Revelation 21:21). And why would you need healing in heaven? There is no sickness there. So you need the health and wealth in the here and now!

Beloved, God wants you to vitally be the heir of the world today. So lay hold of your rich inheritance today. Jesus paid for it with His blood. Don’t push it all to the sweet by and by!

Say this with me: IN CHRIST JESUS, I AM AN HEIR OF THE WORLD, AND I MANIFEST THIS HEIRSHIP VITALLY IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich’ (2 Corinthians 8:9; KJV).

According to this verse, you are rich. You are not trying to be rich. It does not matter how much you are earning or how much you have in your bank account. You are rich because Christ is your prosperity. And as your need arises, God’s supply will vitally be there for you always.

This was the case for a church member who worked as a consultant and proof reader. For months, he could not secure any major deals. But while attending one of our churches and sowing seeds in faith, he received a word on financial prosperity. Ever since then he has been getting big projects and contracts that pay in huge sums! He needed a major breakthrough and God abundantly supplied his need. Glory to God!

In the Bible, there is an account of a couple who had a big need on their wedding day. They had run out of wine. Now, you would expect wedding couples to know how many guests to expect on their big day and to plan accordingly. But perhaps this couple did not have the money to buy enough wine. Whatever the reason was, Jesus saved them from embarrassment and shame. He saved the day when He supplied their need by miraculously turning six pots of water into top-quality wine (John 2:1-10). Our Lord Jesus abundantly supplied the need of that couple.

Beloved, whatever needs you have, God wants you to know that His supply is vitally there for you. You have His Word for it. He promises that He has legally supplied all your needs, not just some. And He will continue to supply all your needs according to and not out of His riches. This means that He lines up from A to Z all His riches for your supply! All His riches are yours! Glory to God!

Rejoice that you are rich “according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”. This is far greater and more dependable than the temporal riches that you might have from any earthly source!

Say this with me: I AM RICH, I HAVE ALL THE MONEY I NEED, BECAUSE GOD HAS MADE ALL FAVOURS AND HEAVENLY BLESSINGS ABOUND TOWARDS ME IN ABUNDANCE IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks’ (Deuteronomy 28:4).

Because Christ is in you, the things which you produce will be of exceptional quality. That includes your children, who will be champions vitally. Deuteronomy 28:4 says, “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.”

God communicated to the Israelites in terms that they understood since they were farmers and shepherds. Today, “your ground” is the place of your work. This means that “the produce” of your work shall be of excellent quality.

That is not all. God promises that quantity will always follow quality because Deuteronomy 28:11 says that the Lord will “grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body,” which means that you will have plenty of children; “in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground,” which means that your business will flourish and you will be a leading producer in the area of your specialty.

Your excellence and plenty do not come by your efforts. They come by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for your prosperity—“though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).

Jesus was made destitute of all material things at the Cross. He had nothing! As He hung on the Cross, He watched the Roman soldiers gamble for His robe. His last possession on earth was gambled away. He became poor, so that you could be blessed with the excellent and the plenty!

Say this with me: BLESSED ARE THE FRUITS OF MY BODY! BLESSED ARE THE PRODUCES OF MY GROUND! BLESSED ARE THE INCREASE OF MY HERDS AND CATTLE! AND BLESSED ARE THE OFFERINGS OF MY FLOCKS IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age…’ (Ruth 4:15).

Famine impoverished the life of Naomi, a Jewess. But it was the deaths of her husband and two sons that left her completely destitute (Ruth 1:1-5). Or so she thought, until Boaz, who was a wealthy and close relative, entered her life.

As her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz married Ruth, Naomi’s widowed daughter-in-law. And through that union, Naomi had a grandson. The birth of her grandson gave her a new lease of life, hence, the womenfolk in her village declared that the restorer of her life and the nourisher of her old age had come to her (Ruth 4:14–16).

Boaz is a picture of Jesus, our kinsman-redeemer. Jesus became our kinsman when He was born into this world as one like us. And He became our Redeemer when He paid with His life and offered His blood via the Cross to obtain Eternal redemption for us.

Jesus gave Himself to us as our restorer of life and nourisher of our old age. When the restorer of life is in one’s life, what he had lost can be restored (Joel 2:25-26). And with the nourisher of our old age in us, our bodies can vitally be gloriously renewed even though we advance in our years.

That is why when Moses died at the age of 120, his eyes were not dim and his masculine vigor was not diminished (Deuteronomy 34:7). Caleb, at 85 years old, could still drive out the giants from the land. God had literally nourished his body and made it strong for war (Joshua 14:11). Sarah was certainly rejuvenated in her old age by God, as she was still desirable to a king at the age of 90 (Genesis 20:1-2). God even renewed her womb. She received strength to conceive seed (Hebrews 11:11), giving birth to Isaac in her old age.

Beloved, God is outside of time and your faith in Him brings you into this timeless zone. There, what the years have stolen will be restored. And even as your years increase, you will not grow weak and weary because the restorer of life, nourisher of your old age is in you!

Say this with me: JESUS CHRIST THE TRUE RESTORER OF LIFE AND NOURISHER OF OLD AGE LIVES IN ME! THEREFORE, I VITALLY LIVE IN A TIMELESS ZONE OF PROSPERITY, HEALTH AND WHOLENESS IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing’ (John 9:7).

When Adam sinned and fell, everything about creation fell. Yet, people today are still putting their trust in creation. For example, they try to become healthy by eating what is called the “Eden diet”—vegetables and no meat. They are acting as if creation did not fall. They also forget that there are athletes and other people who eat well and exercise regularly, and still drop dead in the prime of their lives!

Thank God that what creation cannot do, the finished works of Christ can do and has done. Jesus demonstrated this when He spat on the ground, made clay with the saliva and put it on a blind man’s eyes (John 9:6–7). Now, it is certainly unusual to put clay on a blind man’s eyes, because he would become doubly blind!

So why did Jesus do that?

He was demonstrating to us that all our body parts come from the ground and that because creation is fallen, the work of creation cannot open a blind man’s eyes. But the His finished works can! That is why He sent the blind man to the pool of Siloam. The word “Siloam” means “sent”, referring to the Sent One, Jesus. When the blind man washed his eyes in the pool of the Sent One, he received supernatural healing for his eyes. Glory to God!

Beloved, when we fellowship with Jesus, the Sent one who came to save us with the price of His blood, and we rest in His finished work, we will vitally receive the miracle we need. If we believe that by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5), we will vitally have greater health than those who trust in creation.

Jesus was sent to save us from every curse that came upon creation with the fall of Adam. He has saved us from sickness, pain, sorrow, depression, poverty and even death. The world may know Him as the Creator. But today, we know Him as our Savior. Where the work of creation cannot save us, His finished works can and has!

Say this with me: IN CHRIST JESUS, I HAVE BEEN SAVED FROM SICKNESS, PAIN, SORROW, DEPRESSION, POVERTY AND EVEN DEATH! I LIVE IN THE FULLNESS OF THE ZOE LIFE AT WORK IN ME IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God’ (Philippians 4:6).

You would probably have read this verse before, but would you like to know how to apply it in your everyday life? Let me give you an illustration to help you.

Let’s say that you are one of those in your company eligible for a promotion and you will know tomorrow whether you get it. You want the promotion direly, because it means more income for your family. So you lie in bed at night tossing and turning. You pray, “Father, please take away all my worries about this promotion. Give me faith.” One hour later, you are more anxious than ever. It seems like God is not answering your prayer!

How did that come about? It’s simply because you are not doing it God’s way.

Pray like this instead: “Father, I cast all my worries about the promotion into your loving hands because you care for me and love me.” The Bible tells us to cast all our cares upon the Lord for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). Then, say, “Father, I would like to have the promotion.” It is okay to ask Him for that. Now, here comes the most powerful part—thanksgiving. Finish off with thanksgiving. Thank God for His faithfulness.

Say something like, “Father, whether I get the promotion or not, I thank you that you will always provide for my family with more than enough. You who feed the birds of the air and clothe the lilies of the field will take care of us. So I am not going to worry about this promotion. You are the source of all my blessings” (Matthew 6:30; Philippians 4:19).

When you pray like this, all of a sudden, you are no longer held hostage by the anxiety and worry for the promotion. I call this the “Thank You” therapy. The more you know God’s Word, the more you can thank Him. The more you thank Him, the more His peace vitally reigns in your heart. And many a time, before you know it, it is morning! You don’t even remember falling asleep. The peace of God reigns like that.

Whatever your concerns are, bring them to your Father in prayer and thank your way to vital peace!

Say this with me: FATHER, I CAST ALL MY WORRIES ABOUT MY VITAL PROMOTIONS INTO YOUR LOVING HANDS BECAUSE YOU CARE FOR ME AND LOVE ME. FATHER, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE PROMOTIONS NOW. THANK YOU ABBA FATHER FOR THE MIGHTY PROMOTIONS AND NEWER LEVELS YOU JUST VITALLY GAVE TO ME.

‘… And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard Me. 42And I know that you always hear me…’ (John 11:41-42).

After Jesus had said those words, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And the man who had been dead for four days came out of his tomb!

This is one of the greatest miracles that Jesus performed. Lazarus had been dead for four days when Jesus raised him to life. Wouldn’t you agree that death is indeed an extreme problem? Having no money in the bank, being sick and losing your job, bad as they are, are not as bad as being dead!

But what I want you to see is this: If Jesus, in the most extreme of problems, shows us that the solution is still, “Father, I thank you,” then how much more should we thank God in the midst of the less serious problems we face. If thanksgiving can raise the dead, then let us give thanks in spite of the negative circumstances and we will vitally see victory.

Unfortunately, we tend to do the opposite—murmur and complain. But murmuring and complaining only magnify the problem. Thanksgiving, on the other hand, is the language of faith which pleases God. I am not saying that we give thanks for the problems we have. No, we thank God that He is our answer and that He has already given every blessing to us (Ephesians 1:3).

But Pastor Gee, what I have is so little.”

Thank God for the little you have and see it multiply. Jesus thanked His Father for the five barley loaves and two small fishes, a little boy’s lunch, and they were multiplied to feed more than 5,000 people with 12 baskets full of leftovers! (John 6:8–13). And notice that when the Holy Spirit talked about this event again, He specifically mentioned the Lord giving thanks—“the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks” (John 6:23). The Holy Spirit seemed to be more pleased with the act of giving thanks than the miracle of multiplication or the 12 baskets full of leftovers.

Beloved, the more you thank God, the more you please Him with your faith in motion. That little you have will vitally be multiplied and whatever is dead in your life will vitally be raised to life!

Say this with me: FATHER, I THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE HEARD ME! AND I KNOW THAT YOU ALWAYS HEAR ME.

And, now, with a loud voice go ahead and declare what you want to vitally see or have.

When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch’ (Luke 5:4).

God wants to vitally bless you—big-time! It was for this reason that He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” The deep is where you will find a whole lot of fish. You won’t find them near the shore in shallow waters. But to launch out into the deep is to move away from the comfort of the shoreline.

God wants you to break away from your comfort zone and step out in faith to do what He has put in your heart. It may be something simple, but which you have never done before or only dreamt of, like attending or travelling for a Camp Meeting. I did just that and found love. Today, I am happily married to my beautiful wife Pastor Eden.

Now, our Lord Jesus who said, “Launch out into the deep…” also said, “… let down your nets for a catch.” Notice that He used the plural “nets” and not the singular “net”. Beloved, God wants to vitally give you more than what you need. His dream for you is bigger than anything you can ever dream of. Dream big and God will vitally exceed your dream because He delights in vitally giving you exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).

A church member who was working as a low rank worker in the public sector wanted to be promoted some 8 ranks upwards from the level he was, he came to meet me, Pastor Gee, and sowed a faith seed towards it. While praying with him, I received a word from the Lord that the blessings of the south and the west have confluenced and the promotion he had believed God for had come. Less than a year after I gave him this prophecy, he was promoted 8 ranks upwards. Glory to God! Today, he is flourishing. God is blessing him beyond his wildest dreams!

Beloved, God wants to vitally bless you beyond your wildest dreams. He did it for Simon who was astonished at the size of the catch of fish (Luke 5:9). But it was not until Simon launched out into the deep that he ended up with the net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish (Luke 5:6–7). You, too, will be astonished at your catch when you step out of your comfort zone and launch out into the deep with the Lord!

Say this with me: I WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT! I STEP OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND LAUNCH OUT INTO THE DEEP WITH THE LORD! GLORY TO GOD!

Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl’ (Deuteronomy 28:5).

In Bible times, reapers carried baskets on their backs to collect the harvest from the fields. They had to ensure that their baskets were strong and sturdy, so that what they collected would not fall out. The women of that day used kneading bowls to knead dough for making bread. If they used poor-quality bowls which broke easily, they would not be able to make bread.

So baskets and kneading bowls in those days represented the means by which one got his tangible blessings. Beloved, your Father in heaven does not want you to worry about the means by which you get your blessings. Because of the sacrifice of Christ, He says to you, “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.”

This means that if you are a cab driver, your cab will not break down on your rounds because God says to you, “Blessed shall be your cab.” If you are a businessman, your capital investment will not fail you, because God says to you, “Blessed shall be your capital investment.” And if you are a salesman, your products will be looked upon favorably, because God says to you, “Blessed shall be your products.”

These blessings are yours because Jesus paid for them with His death and He enforced them with His resurrection.

On one occasion, Jesus told Peter to throw his nets into the water. When Peter threw one net down, he caught so much fish that the net “was breaking”. To save the bumper haul, the other disciples quickly filled their boats with the fish, lest the net gave way completely (Luke 5:4–7).

After Jesus rose from the dead, a similar incident took place. Once again, Jesus asked His disciples to cast their net out. They caught a multitude of fish. But “although there were so many, the net was not broken” (John 21:11). Notice that in the first case (before the resurrection), the net was breaking. In the second case (after the resurrection), it was not! Something supernatural happened to their nets after Jesus rose from the dead!

Beloved, because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, not only are you blessed (Ephesians 1:3), but your nets, baskets and kneading bowls—the means by which you obtain your blessings—are also blessed!

Say this with me: BLESSED ARE MY BASKETS AND KNEADING BOWLS IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

The Lord repay your work and a full reward be given you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge’ (Ruth 2:12).

Have you ever wondered why, in some Bible stories, God asked the people to give what little they had to Him? It may appear cruel, but the truth is that God was setting them up for a blessing! God’s way is to use whatever we have, and multiply it back to us once we put it in His hands.

The widow of Zarephath had only a handful of flour and a little oil to make one last meal for her son and herself before they faced death from starvation. But she trusted God and used a portion of the little that she had to make a cake for the prophet Elijah. And God rewarded her by making sure that her bin of flour was not used up and her jar of oil did not run dry until the drought ended (1 Kings 17:8-16).

Similarly, the boy who gave his little lunch of five loaves and two small fishes to Jesus not only ate well, but he also saw it being used to feed more than 5,000 people with 12 baskets full of leftovers! (John 6:1-13).

Whenever we give what little we have to God: whether it is money, time or energy, it opens up our hearts so that God can vitally fill us up with more. And when we give our all to God, we can trust Him to make things right for us and to be the rewarder of our faith.

When Ruth, a childless Moabite widow, left the comfort of her home to follow her mother-in-law Naomi and the God of Israel back to a foreign land (Ruth 1:16), she was given a full reward by the Lord. God gave Ruth protection and ensured that she was well-provided for through Boaz, a wealthy relative who took on the role of kinsman-redeemer for her and Naomi (Ruth 2:9, 4:9–10).

Beloved, as you trust God with what you have today, know that He loves you and is vitally setting you up for more blessings. So expect to see even more of His provision and abundance in the days to come!

Say this with me: I AM A BIG TIME SOWER! I AM A GIVER! AND I GIVE BIG FOR THE FUTHERANCE OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.

For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken’ (Luke 5:9).

As a young Christian, I grew up hearing preachers say that God only supplies our needs, not our wants. Yet, in the Bible, God clearly shows us that He wants to meet not just our needs, but also our wants.

For example, the famous “shepherd psalm” begins with “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). Another psalm says, “Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing” (Psalm 34:9-10).

One of the names of our God is JEHOVAH JIREH, which means “the all-providing One”. He provides more than enough. The God of more-than-enough came in the flesh and walked among His people. And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He did not give His disciples small blessings.

That was why He said to Peter, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets [plural] for a catch” (Luke 5:4), and not “let down your net [singular]”. And what a catch it turned out to be—a boat-sinking, net-breaking catch! It was such a big and unexpected blessing that Peter and all who were with him were “astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken.”

Beloved, see God’s heart for you today. He wants to vitally prosper you greatly. Don’t settle for anything less, thinking that He only supplies your needs and not your wants. If you need a job, know that He wants you to pray not just for a job, but for a position. When you have a position, you have influence and you are able to impact lives. Maybe what you need is a pay increment. Then, pray not just for that, but also to be in a position to give increments! Glory to God!

You may start out small, when you follow God. But you cannot remain small when you follow the God of more-than-enough. In fact, like Peter, you too will be astonished that God supplies more than what you need and beyond what you have asked!

GOD’S ABUNDANT PROVISION is able to afford all your needs.

Say this with me: MY GOD IS A GOD OF MORE-THAN-ENOUGH! WHEN HE GAVE JESUS ON THE CROSS FOR ME, HE SUPPLIED ALL MY NEEDS AND WANTS! I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

‘…God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace’ (Galatians 1:15).

Beloved, you are not an accident with no destiny. God has called you from your mother’s womb. You have a special calling and a destiny in Christ, and it is all by His grace!

There are Christians who are called by God to be doctors. But I believe that among them are those separated from their mothers’ wombs for the healing ministry. They have a passion to seek cures in order to alleviate the sufferings of humanity, and they can as well function as healing evangelists and healing missionaries.

Likewise, I think that there are Christians who are called by God to be teachers in secular schools. But among them are those separated from their mothers’ wombs to be Bible teachers. What gives them tremendous fulfillment is seeing lives saved and transformed under their teaching.

What about those famous magicians you see performing tricks on television? They have a love for the mystical and supernatural. If they were to become Christians, they might just become prophets with ministries marked by the miraculous!

The apostle Paul knew that he was called from his mother’s womb. He had a misguided passion for God though, as he was persecuting the church, until he had his encounter with Jesus (Acts 8:3, 9:1- 6).

If Paul, a terrorist to the early church, could be touched by Christ to become an apostle of grace, what about today’s terrorists who blow up people in the name of their “god?” For all you know, if they receive Christ, they might just become trailblazers in the kingdom of God!

Now, don’t think that your calling has to do with your qualifications, abilities, achievements, mistakes or even your walk with God. You were called from your mother’s womb by His grace. As a fetus in your mother’s womb, there was not much you could do,—good or bad. That is why your calling is all by His grace. And since He has given you a calling, ask the Holy Spirit to help you discern the desires that He has placed in your heart, the passions that drive you in life, and fulfill your calling and destiny in Christ!

OUR CALLING AND destiny was divinely predestined through God’s grace.

Say this with me: I HAVE A DESTINY IN CHRIST JESUS! AND I FULFILL MY DESTINY TO THE FULLEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow’ (Deuteronomy 28:12).

In the Bible, rain usually speaks of blessings and the supply of the Spirit. Even today, Israelis thank God when it rained, because they know that when He gives them rain, their blessings will be plentiful. Their cattle will feed in large green pastures and eat cured, winnowed fodder. And when they see rivers and streams of water flowing from their mountains and hills (Isaiah 30:23-25), they know that times of refreshing and power have come.

Likewise, you can expect God to vitally rain His blessings and power on you and vitally bless the work of your hands. Then, you will vitally come to a place where you will “lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.” In fact, Jesus wants you to know that this is a blessing that He died to give to you; because when He died, He did not even have a tomb of His own. He was laid in a borrowed tomb, so that you can have the power to lend.

There is nothing you can do about the rain other than to let it fall. So just expect God to vitally rain His blessings and Glory on you! Let them fall! And you will be vitally blessed with more than enough, so that with your needs and your family’s needs more than met, you can be a blessing to others too!

HIS FAVOR BRINGS you rain of blessings in their seasons.

Say this with me: THE RAIN OF GOD’S BLESSINGS AND POWER ARE UPON ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AND I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO LEND TO NATIONS AND NEVER BORROW.

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out’ (Deuteronomy 28:6).

The Opening scripture says, “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.” This refers to being blessed in the affairs of one’s daily life, whether in or outside one’s home.

So here, God is saying that you are blessed in your everyday life. Do you believe it? Do you believe that every day, your family and work life are blessed? Or do you think that you are blessed only during Christmas when you receive your gifts and year-end bonus, or when you get that promotion you have been waiting for? Perhaps you think that the blessed life only begins when you meet the man or woman of your dreams!

No, my friend, you are blessed every day and you have God’s Word for it. Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation.” And because God’s Word says so, believe that every day of your life is loaded with benefits. Every morning, when you get up, believe that it is a day that the Lord has made, and rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24). Start the day expecting it to be loaded with the benefits that God has prepared just for you. Be blessing-conscious!

At night, when it is time to sleep, know and believe that you are the blessed, and you will be more vitally blessed when you get up in the morning because there will be another load of benefits from your heavenly Father, who so loves you unconditionally, waiting for you!

If you will just believe what God has said in His Word and act in faith, the blessings will vitally manifest in your life. In fact, God wants to bless you more than you want to be blessed! His Word declares it: “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out… Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!”

Beloved, believe God’s Word. Believe Him for the vital manifestations of His blessings in your life and you will find yourself vitally loaded with His daily benefits!

YOU ARE BLESSED IN YOUR EVERYDAY AFFAIR.

Say this with me: I AM BLESSED IN MY GOING OUT! I AM BLESSED IN MY COMING IN! ALL MY DAYS ARE BLESSED AND LOADED WITH ALL THE BENEFITS OF THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:19).

Paul speaking to his partners in ministry, He told them that even as they have sown seeds into His life, Yahweh will supply all their needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Beloved, you are rich. You are not trying to be rich. It does not matter how much you are earning or how much you have in your bank account. You are rich because Christ is your prosperity, and before your needs arise, God’s supply is there for you.

In the Bible, there is an account of a couple who had a big need on their wedding day. They had run out of wine. Now, you would expect wedding couples to know how many guests to expect on their big day and to plan accordingly. But perhaps this couple did not have the money to buy enough wine. Whatever the reason was, Jesus saved them from embarrassment and shame. He saved the day when He supplied their need by miraculously turning six pots of water into top-quality wine (John 2:1-10). Our Lord Jesus abundantly supplied the need of that couple.

Beloved, whatever needs you have, God wants you to know that His supply is there for you. You have His Word for it. He said that He will vitally supply all your needs, not just some. And He will supply all your needs according to and not out of His riches. This means that He lines up from A to Z all His riches for your supply! All His riches are yours!

Rejoice that you are rich “according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”. This is far greater and more dependable than the temporal riches that you might have from any earthly source!

GOD LINES UP from A to Z all His riches for your supply vitally.

Say this with me: I AM RICH ACCORDING TO GOD’S RICHES IN GLORY BY CHRIST JESUS!

God told Abram: “Leave your country, your family, and your father’s home for a land that I will show you. I’ll make you a great nation and bless you. I’ll make you famous; you’ll be a blessing. I’ll bless those who bless you; those who curse you I’ll curse. All the families of the Earth will be blessed through you’ (Genesis 12:1-3).

Walking in destiny births fulfillment! It’s fulfilling when one acts on the leading of the Spirit of God the moment He tells one to give a certain amount of money to someone who needs it urgently.

When you have enough resources to become a distribution center for others, you demonstrate truly God’s commission for you to be a blessing until all the families of the earth are blessed.

Your family is waiting for you to arrive at your final destination, so you can show them who God really is.

Remember the word-seed is one of the things that have impact on your vital increase in the Kingdom of God. It’s one of the signs on the major highway to the world of wealth. The Gospel of Christ will definitely change you from the inside out.

Prosperity is more than money. While it does include money and other material possessions, it goes far beyond that. It’s an expression of God’s love to His children. Prosperity is having money vitally & resources enough to do what God has purposed for you to do and more.

When you are prosperous vitally, you have the ability to bless others financially.

Matthew 11:5–the poor needs more than mere hand-outs: they need the Gospel, they need the good news that Jesus came to set them free, and that God’s will for them is prosperity.

Poverty doesn’t always mean lack of financial resources. Think of someone who is physically sick but has a lot of money in his account. While this individual may have money, he is still poor in health. Some people have poor marital relationships.

Whosoever you are, you should be living life in abundance, to the full until it overflows. When you have a prosperous soul, your health and the circumstances surrounding you will reflect that. The truth is God wants you to live a healthy and wealthy life. The Word, not money holds the key that grants vital access to the doors of heavenly blessings. No matter the situation you’re facing right now, the solution is found in the Word of God.

Say this with me: PROSPERITY IS MY NATURE IN CHRIST JESUS! AND I MANIFEST MY NATURE OF PROSPERITY TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus’ (Philemon 1:6).

The acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus makes your faith effective. You are to renew your mind to vitally gain access to the abundance God has predestined for you.

In order to discover the place God intends for you to be, you will have to get to the point of believing there’s a specific plan and a destiny for your life as the word of God says.

You don’t have to allow yourself to be controlled by the circumstances around. Keep your priorities in line with God’s will. Before you were even formed in your mother’s womb, God had already set up a plan, destiny and purpose for your life. Believe God for the prosperous life vitally.

Your heavenly father desires to demonstrate His devoted love to you vitally. God doesn’t just give love, He is Agape and because He is Love, He is waiting to shower you vitally with His goodness. His goodness goes far beyond material things.

When you vitally receive God’s prosperity plan for your life, it includes total health and wellness in every area of your life. It includes good health, financial health, and well-being in your marriage and success in all your relationship.

When you allow the Word to penetrate your thinking and change the inner image of yourself by acknowledging all the good things that are in you in Christ Jesus, you are on your way to fulfilling God’s plan for your life!

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’ (Jeremiah 1:5).

Beloved, while it’s good for you to have a job so that you can pay your bills and take care of your needs, working on a job that takes all your time and retiring at age sixty-five is not God’s definition of a fulfilled life. It will be good for your job to be connected to your purpose or let it be a job that gives you enough time to fulfill destiny.

Your job is not your source. It is a way for you to have money and sow into the Kingdom of God, so that you can vitally increase much more. God doesn’t want you to depend solely on your job to make it. He has something much greater planned for your life.

Your vital success in life is directly connected to your purpose and destiny, and when you walk in purpose and destiny, fulfillment is assured.

True prosperity is success in every area of your life, not just finances. That’s why Jesus came to Earth to make this type of life available to you. He wants you to live a life that is vitally rich, an exceeding measure kind of life, something above the ordinary–plentiful life.

God indeed has a plan and purpose for your life. You were not just given ZOE so that you could live an ordinary life. God has a specific plan and purpose for you (Ephesians 2:10; AMP).

For some people, in the natural, it may look like you are standing in a circle of debt, oppression or frustration but what does the word say about your situation. You can vitally change the type of circle you are in when you believe that greater is He, Jesus, that is in you than he (Satan) that’s in the world.

Say this with me: TRUE PROSPERITY IS SUCCESS IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE, NOT JUST FINANCES! JESUS CAME TO EARTH TO MAKE THIS TYPE OF LIFE AVAILABLE TO ME. I HAVE THIS LIFE IN ME RIGHT NOW! AND MANIFEST IT IN AN EVER INCREASING MEASURE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction’ (Mark 5:34).

Beloved, Jesus is pleased when you take from Him. In the healing of the woman with the issue of blood, you could say that the woman sneaked up behind the back of Jesus and “stole” her healing. But was Jesus offended? Not at all! In fact, He was so pleased with her boldness that He just had to meet her.

Jesus did not seek her out for a rebuke. No, He sought her out so that He could affirm her with His love and assure her that He wasn't angry with her for having taken a portion of healing virtue from Him. That's why He even called her "daughter," and then encouraged her to walk in her healing- "Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."

THOUGHT: Draw near to your loving Savior and Friend in full assurance and confidence that He will not condemn or reject you, but that only love for you causes his heart to beat and courses through his eternal veins.

Whoa! This is all getting so interesting! When you would have just expected a pharisaic chastisement from your Savior, He even goes on to commend your faith and cheer up your heart. How lovely – “laughs out loud”!

Beloved, that’s the heart of your Savior towards you. He wouldn’t speak condemnatory wrathful words to you (even when you might seem to have been in an error). He did not come into the world to condemn, but that through Him the world might receive salvation from sin. He will freely give His healing virtue to anyone who will take it from Him. So reach out and take from Him right now and bring pleasure to His Heart.

Say this with me: I VITALLY RECIEVE MY HEALING, HEALTH AND WHOLENESS TODAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! BEGINNING FROM NOW, I VITALLY LIVE IN THE PLACE THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST HAS BROUGHT ME INTO, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!

Beloved, the Sun of Righteousness shines daily upon you! He is the One that has made you eternally righteous! Not only that there is healing in His wings! If you are sick, receive your Healing now in Jesus’ Name!

He gave you health and wholeness! There is prosperity, success, abundance and shalom in His wings! And it’s under His wings that you dwell, and at the same time He lives in you! You are His Headquarters! What an awesome place to be!

…surely will those who receive God’s overflowing Grace and the free gift of righteousness reign as Kings in life, through Jesus Christ’ (Roman 5:17; AMP).

The word “reign” above is from the Greek word “basileuo” which means “to reign in life with Kingly Dominion.” The secret of reigning in life with kingly dominion lies with you receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for you via His Finished works.

We reign simply by receiving God’s overflowing Grace and the free gift of righteousness and not by trying to achieve it by works. God’s way is not about achieving but about receiving. Romans 5:17 didn’t say when we achieve or earn grace and our own righteousness we will reign in life with kingly dominion, it’s simply about receiving and not achieving.

Beloved, you are a success already because of what Jesus did for you through the cross, thus don’t go to your working place to achieve success, go there to manifest the success you were born with in Christ.

The world system believe that self-effort + diligence = success. But the foolishness of God which is wiser than all the wisdom of the world put together says that receiving God’s overflowing Grace + His free gift of righteousness = True Success.

My friend, which is Greater, man or God? Of course it’s God! The world tells you that the more you do, the harder you work, the more hours you put in, the more success you will achieve, but God wants us to stop trying to achieve success by depending on ourselves and focus on receiving vitally what Jesus has given to us already.

Say this with me: IN CHRIST I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS, HAVING AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT, and PROSPERING IN EVERY SINGLE AREA OF MY LIFE IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!

The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things that must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John’ (Revelation 1:1).

In subsequent editions of Unforced Rhythms of Grace we will get to find out that Revelations is a sweet book. It’s a book that reveals Jesus and His finished works in signs and symbols.

Revelation 1:1 clearly tells us that the book is the Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave to John and not the revelation of Hell. It’s a book that shows us the future in the light of the finished works of Christ. It also has present day nutrient for us.

“HE sent and signified it.” Wow! This statement shows us that it’s full of signs and symbols. They should be interpreted in the light of the truths already told in the whole Bible.

In Revelations 1:4, John tells us that the book was to the Seven Churches which were in Asia at the time.

THOUGHT LINE: all we see in Revelations is Jesus and His finished works, not a revelation of hell. Amen!

Never forget that all of Scriptures is God breathed.

It says to the church in Revelations 1:5-6, ‘unto Him that Loved us and washed us from our entire life of sins in His own Blood (He loosed and freed us once and for all from sins with his own Blood), and has made us Kings and Priests unto God and His Father’ (AMP).

Beloved, right from chapter one He tells US that the whole church (in Christ, you are part of the church) has already been washed, freed and loosed from their entire life of sins once and for all time, all this happened because Jesus loved and loves us and He Gave Himself for us; washing us in His own Blood. By this, He solved the sin problem once and for all.

He did not stop there; He made you a King and a Priest. What a loving Jesus we have!

Say this with me: I AM JESUSBLOOD WASHED! I AM SIN FREE! I AM SINLESS! I HAVE BEEN LOOSED FROM SIN THROUGH HIS BLOOD! AND NOW I’M A KING AND A PRIEST TO THE GLORY OF ABBA! HALLELUJAH!

I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was and which is to come, the Almighty’ (Revelations 1:6).

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, which are the first and the last letters in the Greek alphabet. That is why you find some translations rendering it as “I am A to Z. “Wow! Beloved, Christ plus nothing is our A-Z! And we are in Him! Glory to God!

THOUGHT LINE: Jesus is our A and Z – the animal that was slain at the cross for you and me.

In the Hebrew (note that Hebrew letters have pictures to symbolize them), Alpha and Omega are both Aleph (first letter in Hebrew) and Tav (last letter in Hebrew).The pictorial symbol for Aleph is the ox, which is a strong, sacrificial and untiring beast of burden. While the pictorial symbol for Tav is a “cross,” which brings to heart the Cross of Jesus.

This means that in the Hebrew, for the Resurrected Christ to say, ‘I am Aleph and Tav’ (Aleph-Tav), He also would be saying, ‘I am the same strong, sacrificial and untiring OX that was offered on the Cross for you.’

This is how we must now see the beautiful book of Revelation, as one that contains pictures of all that Christ has wrought for us in his sacrificial death. It speaks in spiritual language of the benefits of the Cross to the believer, what we have in Him as our inheritance that has been obtained by His blood offered for the whole world.

The “A and Z” says Himself that He was the same animal that was offered for you on the Cross. He chose to die for you and to, thereby, cleanse you from your entire life of sins and loose you from its bondage, giving you your eternal freedom vitally.

What a Loving Jesus we have! Say this with me: JESUS IS THE STRONG, UNTIRING AND SACRIFICIAL ANIMAL THAT WAS OFFERED ON THE CROSS FOR ME! HE IS MY A-Z AND IAM IN HIM! THUS, I AM EVER LIVING THE GLORIOUS LIFE NOW; A LIFE FULL OF PROSPERITY, HEALTH, WHOLENESSNOTHING MISSING AND NOTHING BROKEN! IN JESUSNAME! AMEN!

…saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty’ (Revelation 1:8b).

Beloved, in Genesis chapter one, Abba is called ‘God’ (i.e. ‘Elohim’). It means ‘The Supreme Creator God’. In the whole chapter, you would see ‘God (Elohim) said.’ You don’t see the word ‘LORD’ (in capital letters), which is a rendering of ‘Yahweh’. But you also see ‘the Spirit of the Lord’ (which mostly is a rendering of Adonai).

In Genesis chapter two, in which same chapter Man had received breathe of life and came fully on the scene, Abba is mostly called the ‘LORD God’, which is, ‘Yahweh God’.

Yahweh God is our covenant keeping God, the self-existing God and He is the One that went into a covenant in our behalf; He is Jesus. The name ‘Yahweh’ gives us the sense of a special unconditional love relationship, a sacrificial relationship on our behalf.

WHEN you are conscious of Abba’s love, you will always dominate vitally in life. His Name, YAHWEH, is the source of intimacy.

In Genesis three, while the Devil through the serpent tempted Eve, he didn’t mention the ‘LORD (YAWEH) God,’ as the One who has been talking to man all the while. He kept on asking, ‘has God (Elohim the Supreme Creator) said…?’Eve even loosed sight of Yahweh God and replied in the same tone, ‘God (the supreme creator)….’She loosed sight of Abba’s love!

Abba wanted them to see Him as not just the Creator, but as YAWEH ELOHIM also -the One that loves them unconditionally. When you are conscious of Abba's love, you will always dominate vitally in life.

It was Yahweh God who sought, ‘Adam, where art thou?’ after they had fallen. Yahweh God was the one that removed off them the “fig leaves,” which was a picture of works and self-efforts in trying to solve the sin problem, and then Yahweh God clothed them with animal’s skin, a picture of what He will do on the cross for us as the true solution to the sin problem.

It was Yahweh God that stopped man from eating from the tree of life after they had fallen, because of the bigger picture of His everlasting love; if not man would have been irredeemable. Yahweh God came on the scene because of man!

Say this with me: I KNOW AND BELIEVE YAWEH LOVES ME! HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER, HE IS JESUS! AND HIS EVERLASTING LOVE HAS BEEN LAVISHED UPON ME! IAM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS! IAM SINLESS! IAM PERFECT! AND I REIGN IN LIFE BECAUSE HE LOVES ME! THE CROSS OF JESUS HAS BEAUTIFIED ME FOREVER!

… Saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty’ (Revelation 1:8b).

The Name Yahweh represents what He is (God your covenant keeper), while Elohim is what he does (God your supreme creator). Intimacy comes through the Name “Yahweh,” as explained in Part 11.

In Hebrew, “Yahweh” is “Yod, hey, vav, hey” (the Tetragrammaton).These alphabets also mean I am He who is, who was and who is to come.

This brings us to another point I have been waiting to get to from our previous part. Revelation 1:8b, “… saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” is an expression of Yahweh. The same Yahweh we saw in Genesis 2 as explained in part 11.

JESUS is YAHWEH: the One who sought and brought intimacy to man in the cool of the day.

In fact Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” is also an expression of Yahweh. Jesus is Yahweh. He is the One that was coming in the cool of the day to fellowship with man. He is the One that seeks and brings intimacy. He clothed Adam and Eve with skin. He is the Lamb of God that has taken away the sin problem of the whole world. What a loving Jesus we have!

You will get more details about “Yod, hey, vav, hey” in our next part. Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS, HAVING AN EXCELLENT SPIRIT, FAVOURED GRACIOUSLY ALL THE TIME IN THE NAME OF JESUS! YAWEH IS INTIMATE WITH ME!

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed…’ (Psalms 2: 1-2).

My dear, the heathen raged and protested, “give us Barabbas the criminal and crucify Jesus (Yahweh),” they screamed even louder and said, “crucify Him!”, not knowing that He was Yahweh (Yod-hey-vav-hey).

Remember that Hebrew letters have pictorial symbols attached to them. Yod is the picture of open or stretched hands; hey has a picture of a window to something and it’s the 5th letter in Hebrew (window is a picture of revelation and since it’s the 5th letter, we can call it the revelation of grace).

Note that Hebrew does not use cardinal numbers (1, 2, 3…) as does English. Aleph (A) is the value of one or first; Tav (Z) is the last. Aleph-Tav is A-Z.

Hey is the 5th letter, thus, has the value of 5 or fifth – which is grace (The fifth element is grace. That will be explained in details subsequently).

Vav has the picture of a peg or nail. Therefore, vav is the connection (or peg) word in the Name YAHWEH, which will now give its meaning as ‘YAH is CONNECTED to GRACE!’

If viewed from their pictorial connotation, Yod-hey-vav-hey, thus, will also be seen as “open/stretched hands -grace - nail/peg - grace” (more meaningfully, “the openly stretched hands of grace were nailed resulting in more grace”). This beautifully reminds us of the Cross of Jesus. Jesus Christ is Yahweh! When He hung on the Cross, the OPEN/STRETCHED HANDS of GRACE were NAILED TO IT and, as a result, GRACE has now been released in its fullness to us.

JESUS is YAHWEH! He is the same who went to the Cross for you.

No wonder Jesus told the Jew in the Hebrew, “Assuredly! Before Abraham was IAM,” being the same Name God had told Moses was His Name. Even John the Baptist testified, “I am not he, I have come to prepare the way of the LORD (Yahweh),” literally calling Jesus Yahweh.

At the top of Jesus’ Cross it was written by Pontus Pilate, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews” and the people of Israel asked Pilate to change it to “He said He was the King of the Jews”

However, Pontus Pilate didn’t change it, the Jews complained because their true King was “Yahweh,” but Pilate (being a gentile) didn’t know what he was doing, and he was right. Halleluiah!

Say this with me: YAWEH WAS CRUCIFIED FOR ME! AND BY HIS SACRIFICE I HAVE BEEN PERFECTED FOREVER! IAM GREATLY BLESSED, HIGHLY FAVOURED AND DEEPLY LOVED BY ABBA!

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks’ (Revelation 1:12).

Beloved! According to Revelation 1:20, the seven churches were seven literal churches in Asia Minor, which John wrote to at the time.

Keep in mind that Revelation is a book of signs and symbols. And for us as the present day church, Revelations is loaded with great nuggets.

The seven golden candle sticks: seven is the picture of completeness, wholeness, entirety; gold is the picture of divine righteousness and abundant supplies of mighty wealth; candlesticks refer to the body of Christ (the Church).

GOD SEES you as His righteousness and you possess the wealth of Zion. You are golden.

Thus, the seven golden candlesticks was a picture of the seven churches in Asia Minor, their divine righteousness and abundance of wealth in Christ.

For us today, the “entire (seven)” body of Christ has divine righteousness and is abundantly wealthy; because, Jesus who knew no sin became sin for us and made us God’s own righteousness. On the Cross, He became poor and made you abundantly rich.

Beloved! Today God sees you as His own righteousness. He sees you golden and having His very own righteousness and the abundant wealth of Zion.

Say this with me: IAM FOREVER GOLDEN BEFORE ABBA! I HAVE EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS! I AM WEALTHY! I AM GOLDEN! THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS HAS MADE ME GOLDEN FOREVER! I TALK GOLDEN! I WALK GOLDEN! I LIVE GOLDEN! BECAUSE IAM GOLDEN IN JESUSNAME.

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle’ (Revelation 1:13).

Beloved, the seven golden candlesticks is the picture of the whole body of Christ and we are golden, that is, divinely righteous and abundantly wealthy. And we are the light of the world too.

In the scripture above, we see that the Resurrected Christ is in our midst now and always. He has said to us, “I will never ever, not by any means leave you nor forsake you, that you may be bold to say, ‘the Lord is my helper, I have no fears’.”

Beloved! After Jesus died on the cross, His disciples were hiding themselves because of fear. But, as He resurrected and appeared in their midst, all their fears jumped out the window. This is awesome!

AS JESUS is now in His glory, so are we in this world, perfect, righteous and wealthy just as He.

Beloved, there are no more fears. All the fear files have been eternally destroyed through the blood of Jesus, and now He lives in you, He talks through you, He is ever with you.

The One that is in and with you is not naked(the picture of Adam’s sin and fallen state), He is clothed with a beautiful garment down to His foot, meaning that the same Jesus who was crucified naked on the Cross took all our sins – past, present and future – once and for all time.

And now that He has resurrected He is no more naked, He is clothed, meaning that the sin problem was perfectly and completely solved by His death. And by that one and the same sacrifice, He has perfected us forever.

He has a golden girdle round His pap (chest), meaning that though He knew no sin but on the Cross He became sin for us, but now He is ever divinely righteous and wealthy.

The Resurrected Christ has a golden girdle, meaning that He has divine righteousness, and wealth. And as He is now so are you (WE) in this world.

Say this with me: I AM GOLDEN AS CHRIST IS GOLDEN! AS CHRIST IS RIGHTEOUS, HOLY AND PERFECT SO AM I NOW! I AM EVER GOLDEN!

His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire’ (Revelation 1:14).

In verse 13 of the above scriptural text, He was clothed with a garment and gold was on Him. This means He (Jesus) is royalty possessing great wealth and eternally enthroned. In Daniel 7:9-14, the color of His garment was white, meaning He is pure and clean. And as He is now so are we in this world.- He is the King of kings. We are the Kings.

His white head and hair like snow means the resurrected Christ is perfect, He has no dot of sin on Him, even in His thoughts and mentality. He is forever holy.

BELOVED, WHEN God looks at you and your thoughts He sees the beauty and perfections of Jesus in you; for as He (Jesus) is now, so are you now.

Abba does not assess you base on your works and thoughts. His assessment of you is based on the finished works and thoughts of the Perfect One at His right hand; for as He is now so are you in this world.

The flame of fire in His eyes means that the resurrected Christ is full of all power. Also in the word, ministers are considered “flames of fire,” this brings to heart again that Jesus is our Chief Shepherd, full of power, He is the Apostle of our faith, He is our great High Priest. What a loving Jesus we have.

And His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace’ (Revelation 1:15).

Fine Brass in the Bible speaks of the absorbing of judgments and the anger of God. For example the Israelites sinned and vipers were biting them and God’s solution was to “make a brazen serpent and lift up,” signifying that, in a figurative form, the judgment on the people had been absorbed by the brazen serpent.

It would have been easier to have killed one of the snakes and lift up, but God said to “make and lift up a brazen serpent.” To kill one of the snakes and lift up would have meant a sinner would have to die on the cross to absorb the sins of humanity alongside the anger and judgments of God; he would be the solution to the sin problem. But it would not have been possible. A sinner could not have redeemed mankind.

JESUS absorbed all your sins and judgments on the Cross and has today earned you all of God’s favor and love.

A brazen serpent lifted up is the picture of Jesus who knew no sin. He was born of a virgin. He did no sin. And no sin was found in Him. But, yet on the cross He became sin (the brazen serpent) for us. He absorbed all the sins of humanity, and also absorbed all the anger and judgments of God against us.

Jesus Himself said, “and as Moses lifted up (the brazen) serpent in the wilderness (and it solved the sin problem and healed them then), even so must the Son of Man (Jesus) be lifted up: and when I am lifted up, I will draw (the judgments of) all men unto myself.” Halleluiah! Jesus has done so already.

The fine brass feet are the picture of the Resurrected Christ as our true burnt offering that took all our sins – past, present and future– away on Himself. It’s the pictorial reminder of Jesus as our brazen serpent. He took all the anger and judgments of God. He absorbed everything into Himself for us.

Now, beloved, we have been freely justified of all things. We are righteous, healed, sanctified and eternally holy -all through this divine exchange. What a Loving Jesus we have!

Say this with me: GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH ME! HE CAN NEVER BE ANGRY WITH ME! HE LOVES ME ALWAYS! THEREFORE, GOOD THINGS KEEP ON KEEPING ON HAPPENING TO MEIN JESUSNAME!

‘… And His voice (was) as the sound of many waters’ (Revelation 1:15).

In Daniel 10:5-6, referring to the Voice of the Lord, he described it as the sound of a great multitude full of majesty and authority.

Beloved, He said, My sheep know My voice. This means when He speaks you can hear and understand Him, His voice is louder than even when a great multitude shouts yet when He speaks you will hear Him and the loving gentle tone of His voice.

When a great multitude speaks from a far distance you will not hear them in distinct sounds. But, as for the Resurrected Christ even if He calls your name from heaven you will hear His gracious voice.

Beautifully amazing, though the voice of Jesus may be majestic and full of vast authority, it is yet communicated in gentleness and graciousness. It is only in Him that these two polar qualities blend together per excellent.

BELOVED, feed on the Word of His grace today and find answers to the deepest questions of your heart; soak into the spirit of that voice and find that your healing, comfort and daily encouragement are all there.

The major way to hear Jesus today is through the Word of God. It is through the Word of His Grace.

Beloved, Jesus is the Word of God. And the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow and it’s a discerner of the very thoughts and the intents of the heart.

Say this with me: I AM A WORD MAN! I GO FOR THE WORD OF GRACE! I HEAR JESUS DAILY IN THE WORD! HALLELUYAH!

And He had in His right hand seven stars…’ (Revelation 1:16).

The word for “angel” in the Greek–angelus – can also mean “messengers” or “ministering spirits.” Revelation 1:20 explains that “…the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches…” Literally, John was saying that the seven golden candlesticks were the seven churches in Asia Minor, while the seven stars in the Lord’s hand were the pastors (messengers or the ministry gifts of Christ) in those seven churches.

Concerning the truths of the Word of God, know that seven is the number of wholeness and completeness. So, the seven golden candlesticks is a type and shadow of the Body of Christ (the whole church), while the seven stars are a picture of Christ’s ministry gifts to the church.

The Bible makes it clear that after Jesus ascended on high, He distributed ministry gifts unto men. To some He gave pastors, to some evangelists, to some apostles, to some prophets, to some teachers and yet to others some other callings. The whole of the ministry gifts are represented by the seven stars in His right hand.

THE LORD has made the entire Body of Christ to be and shine as stars forever. You are a star. Go ahead and shine on your world.

Beloved, what an awesome place to be! The Lord has called you to be a star in His right hand (the right hand is the hand of love; it’s the hand of power).

Stop running away and begin to learn, grow and manifest the star you were born to be vitally. Fulfill your calling. Whether it’s in the church or in the market place, make full proof of your ministry.

… And out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword…’ (Revelation 1:16).

The book of Revelation is a book of signs and symbols. The sharp two-edged sword in the mouth of the Resurrected Christ refers to the word of God, it’s called the sword of the Spirit, which is the Rhemaof God (Ephesians 6:17).

The word of God is actually quick (living) and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword (Hebrews 4:12).

Rhema is the talking word. It’s the Spoken Word. And it comes with great power. It’s the sword of the Spirit in the Lord’s mouth.

THE LORD has two-edged swords coming out His mouth, not for your condemnation, but for your favor. He is a Consuming Fire, not for your destruction, but for you protection.

It brings to my heart that we have come to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the Blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than the blood of Abel (Hebrews 12:24).

Beloved, the blood of Jesus speaks better things concerning you. It speaks better things. When you see the sharp two-edged sword in His mouth, let it drop in your heart that it’s the Lord speaking over you. He speaks that your sins have been forgiven and removed- past, present and future. He speaks that it is finished. He speaks better things over your finances, better things over your life - better things. HE SPEAKS BETTER THINGS ALL AROUND YOU! NOW IS RECIEVING TIME!

…And His countenance was as the sun shineth in His strength’ (Revelation 1:16).

Beloved, Jesus is the true Light of the world. He that has received Him has become like Him, “the light of the world” He that has not received Him has no life and is still in the dark.

The resurrected Christ is our Sun of Righteousness. And as He is so are we now in this world.

The scripture above says that, He looked as though when the sun shone in its brilliance. This means the resurrected Christ is so bright and perfect. He is like a beautiful diamond. Any way you turn Him He is glittering. He is all together lovely and beautiful.

WHEN YOU behold Jesus today in all His brilliance and glory, let it come home that it’s how you appear today before the Father. In this world today, you are just as He is.

Beloved, today when God looks at you. He does not see you in your mess. He sees you in Christ, glittering like a diamond, all together lovely and beautiful in all ways like Jesus. Halleluiah!

Unto the angel of the Church of Ephesus write… I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left your first love…. Repent….or else I will come quickly and will remove thy candlestick out of his place’ (Revelation 2:1-5).

‘Unto the angel of the Church of Ephesus’ is a statement that was to the Pastor or ‘Ministry Gift’ (i.e. messenger) in charge of the Church at Ephesus and not to the members of the church. In other words, God was talking to the Pastors and other Ministry Gifts in particularly.

He said that the Pastor had left his FIRST LOVE! FIRST LOVE here does not refer to our love for God. “We love, because He FIRST LOVED us” (1John 4:19).Thus, the challenge with this Pastor was that he loosed sight of Abba’s love for himself and the Church he pastured. He had gotten into mixture.

THIS IS the true definition of love: not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US FIRST and delivered up His Son to be the propitiation of sin.

The removing of the candlestick, if the Pastor does not repent, means the Church would close up if he did not change, because Abba cares about what the flocks are fed with. However, the members will have to join a good church then.

What often causes people to draw back on God is usually the fact that they soon lose sight of God’s unconditional love for them. They mostly cling to their love for God, thereby giving preeminence to their efforts and good works for God. That, in itself is a prideful attitude which can lead to the downfall of any man. But, rather, chose to cling to the love God has for you. Do not see your efforts towards Him. Give complete focus to His love for you, which He demonstrated by giving Jesus over as the propitiation for your sin.

Say this with me: THIS IS LOVE, NOT THAT I LOVE GOD, BUT THAT HE LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY AND GAVE UP JESUS AS THE SACRIFICE FOR ALL MY SINS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE!

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; to him that overcometh, will I give to eat of the tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God’ (Revelation 1:7).

Truly the book of Revelations is an exciting book of signs and symbols. For you to understand the verse above you will have to read from the first verse of the same chapter. Verse one says “Unto the angel of the Church of Ephesus write…,” thus the message was to the angel of the church, and “angel” in this verse, according to the Greek, referred to the “pastor or ministry gift” in charge of the Church.

In verses 4 and 5 God told the pastors that they had left their first love. And first love is God’s love for us, not our love for Him. We love because He first loved us! Thus, leaving their first love meant that the pastors had gotten into mixture.

And God told them to change or repent, that is to go back to preaching and teaching the love of Abba. And we are told in 1John 4:10, “This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

Thus, the pastors are to go back and start to teach the Gospel of Christ, which is also called the Word of His Grace or Word of Faith and many others. No more mixture! Or else the church will close up, and the members will have to relocate to a good church. Not as though Abba hated the pastors, but because that Abba loves the flocks/members so much and cares about what they are fed with spiritually.

Finally in verse 7, God announces to the pastors that if they acted upon those things which He said about their churches, “Abba (He, God) will give you to eat of the tree of life which is in the midst of God’s paradise, “that is to say that they will enjoy the fullness of Jesus’ finished works vitally in their ministry and life here on earth. And they will be graciously rewarded in heaven for having fulfilled purpose.

Beloved, if it was that the pastor never changed, it will mean that he never had fulfilled his true purpose here on earth, and due to his believe system, His life and ministry will be full of struggles. And yet after his earth walk, the pastor will end up going to where he belongs, Heaven!

Say this with me: I AM THE BRIDE OF CHRIST! AND GOD DEEPLY LOVES ME FOREVER!

And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write… I know thy works…. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balack to cast a stumbling rock before the children of Israel, to eat things offered to idols and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate’ (Revelation 2:14-15).

The scripture above is and was directed to the angel (pastors or ministry gifts) of the church (could apply to some present day ministries as well) at Pergamum. In correcting the pastor of this Church, after praising them, the Lord outlined their major problems.

One of the problems the pastor had was that in his Church he had freely accommodated those that believed in the Doctrine of Balaam. This doctrine is the belief and teaching that the Christian can be cursed, and laying curses upon people and believers is ok, they also believe and teach that eating things offered to idols is ok, and that fornication is not a sin moreover you have charge over your body.

Another problem the pastor had was that in his congregation, He had those that held the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. Those were the followers of Nicolans, a heretic, a sect of Gnostics who believed and taught that Jesus did not come in the flesh, (that is why you hear John say, He that says Jesus is not come in flesh is an anti-Christ). They also taught that on this plain of life there is no sin. Even the Lord said, “I hate this doctrine.”

The problem of the pastor of Pergamum was not really what he had believed, but what he had allowed to be happening in the church God had kept in his care. When those that believed false doctrines came to his church, instead of correcting them, he allowed them to be teaching these false doctrines to the flocks to the point that they even pitched their tents in that church.

The messages to us pastors and those in pulpit ministry today are: what message do you believe and teach? Who are the ministers and people you allow to freely have access to and teach the flocks the Lord kept under your care?

When a minister with a wrong belief system joins your ministry, do you just allow him to be teaching because he was once a minister and had fire? Or do you teach him the Word first and work on his foundational belief system in the Word? If the fellow proves not to be teachable, do you still allow him to be preaching anything he believes, even when you know that they are not Word based? What have you been allowing, beloved?

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth’ (Revelation 2:16).

This statement was to the pastor of the Church at Pergamum, whom the Lord had warned concerning the Balaam doctrine and the doctrine of the Nicolaitans that were in the city of Pergamum and of which certain some were even in the Church already, as explained in Part 37.

Beloved, observe that the Lord was not coming to fight the pastor; He was coming to fight the Nicoliatans and Balaamites. The Lord told the pastor to solve the problems He had mentioned earlier, and that if he did not, He would come quickly and solve it by Himself with the sword in His Mouth; which meant that He would solve it with words, prophetic words from his mouth. Thus, protecting and caring for His very flocks. What a Loving Jesus we have!

In verse 17, the Lord told the pastor that if he acted upon those things the Spirit had said by prophecy to him, thus, fulfilling his purpose, that He would reward him vitally with the hidden manner and write his name upon a white stone.

And unto the angel (pastor) of the Church in Thyatira write… I know thy works, charity, service and faith…. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel which calleth herself a prophetess to teach and to seduce my servants…’ (Revelation 2:18-20).

Again, this scripture above was referring to the pastor or Ministry Gift in charge of the church. The problem of this Church was that the pastor had allowed one false prophetess Jezebel to be teaching and seducing God’s children in his church, rather the Church the Lord placed under His care.

Beloved, in vs. 21-22 the Lord even gave her space to repent, what a loving Savior we have. And this scripture was even another warning to her again. Wow!

My friend, when you read vs. 22-23 you will see God’s love in protecting His Church, the Lord said if Jezebel does not repent, judgment will come against her (the false prophetess). What an awesome God we have!

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, neither cold or hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth’ (Revelation 3:15-16).

In the context, the scripture above was a warning to the pastor of the Church of Laodiceans and not to the members of the Church! God was telling the Pastor to choose to be cold or Hot, that if He remains Lukewarm, that will mean that He is unfaithful in the work put in his care, thus more will not be given to him and even that which he has (the flocks in his care) will be taken and given to another, not because God hates Him But because God cares about the flocks and that they are fed and with what. He prefers to have a hot or cold flock, not lukewarm one.

The reason God wants the pastor to be cold or hot and not lukewarm is because, to be hot means to be entirely under Grace, while to be cold means to be entirely under Law (dead); lukewarmness would, therefore, refer to being entirely under mixture. GOD HATES MIXTURE!

Assuming, you were at least completely under Law, it would lead you to despair and into the saving arms of Jesus. The Law would unveil to you, your sinfulness and inability to keep the full measure of it, thus causing you to see your need for HIS GRACE, and it alone. But the moment you try to balance Grace with the Law, you neutralize the effect of both. This is why GOD HATES MIXTURE.

Beloved, we are not the children of the bond woman (Hagar;who is Law) but of the free (Sarah; who is Grace) therefore, live as the children of the free.

Say this with me GOD HATES MIXTURE

And He that sat on the throne was to look upon like jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an Emerald’ (Revelation 4:3).

Jasper is a special stone. It’s a special kind of Diamond which is transparent, while Sardine stone is a very expensive ruby, found in the city of Sardine. It’s red in color.

The sign God gave Noah that He would never ever destroy the earth with water again was the rainbow sign and in Isaiah 54:9-10, God making reference to the way He swore to Noah and gave him the rainbow as a sign, He swore again never to be angry or condemn the believer, because of the sacrifice of Jesus. Thus, the rainbow is a picture that depicts the fact that there are no more judgments, no more anger, and no more condemnation. Emerald is green in color; it speaks of grace, fruitfulness, newness of life and the resurrection life.

In Exodus 28:17-21, God told the high priest to wear twelve stones on his chest carried on the breastplate in four rows. The first stone on the first row was the sardine stone and the last stone on the fourth row was jasper, while before the throne in Revelation 4, the last, jasper, was mentioned first before the first, sardius or sardine.

Ex. 28:17-21, shows us that for man on earth, sardius (red in color – a picture of the blood of Jesus) brought us to the last stone, jasper (which is transparent and means that the blood has made us pure and holy), while in Rev 4:3,we see the true picture and meaning of it all that Jesus, who is pure and holy (jasper),has now through His blood (sardius) that He offered for us saved us and, as a result, there is a RAINBOW AROUND THE THRONE (signifying no more anger and no more condemnation to those in Christ) and the EMERALD (signifying that grace, fruitfulness, newness of life and the resurrection life is now flowing unabated to believers and all that concerns them). Glory to God!

AS A RESULT of the blood and sacrifice of Jesus, there is a rainbow around the throne forever to signify that God will never ever be angry with you or condemn you again. Halleluiah!

Say this with me: THE GRACE OF GOD AND HIS RESURRECTION LIFE FLOW UNABATED TO ME, IN ME AND ALL THAT CONCERNS ME IN JESUS NAME! AMEN.

And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment and they had on their heads crowns of gold’ (Revelation 4:4).

Beloved, who are these elders? The twenty- four seats round about the throne represent a position of rest and restful influence. And as we see, there are twenty four elders sitting on the seats. This represents two generations. There are two dozen or two twelves of them mentioned. Twelve here is the picture of a generation. So the twenty four elders give us a picture of two generations of saints –those before the Cross of Jesus and those after His Cross.

What are my bases for saying this? When Joshua and Caleb were leading the children of Israel to cross the River Jordan, which God divided for them to go through, God instructed them to pick twelve stones from the middle of the river, and put them at the other end of River Jordan for a memorial.

These twelve stones meant that the old generation that followed Moses out of Egypt was no more, and now a new generation led by Joshua will cross the Jordan River. Many years later, John the Baptist was at the same river baptizing people, then He told them (the Jews) if you people will not serve God, He is able to raise these stones (referring to the same twelve stones that Joshua’s generation put there) to serve Him. Thus John was saying that God will raise a new generation to serve Him.

And of course God did so, 1 Peter 2:9, speaking of believers says, “Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation…!” Wow! We are a Holy nation, little wonder why the twenty four elders (representing both generations of saints) were clothed with white raiment, glory to God.

Did you notice that the twenty four elders also wore crowns of gold? The scripture says that we are royalty; we are kings and priests. And Ephesians 2:6 tells us that we believers are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers.

THE BLOOD OF Jesus has made it possible for all of God’s saints, of then and of now, to be clothed in white (accepted in the Beloved) and to sit on thrones with crowns of gold (reigning in life vitally from a position of restful influence). Glory!

Say this with me: I AM FOREVER SITTED WITH CHRIST IN HEAVENLY PLACES! I AM IN HIM, CLOTHED WITH WHITE RAIMENT AND CROWNED WITH GOLDEN CROWNS!

…. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God’ (Revelation 4:5).

Hmmm! Few years ago, I taught on the Seven Spirits of God from the list in Isaiah 11:1-3, as I had heard and read from respected ministers. But I always had some checks and reservations in my heart as though hearing, “Gee, what if they were actually more than seven Spirits of God, when we count them without types and shadows, signs and symbols?”

I Believe in what our fathers taught, I also believe we have all the ones listed in Isaiah 11:1-3, but inside of my heart, I knew there were more, because the list in Isaiah 11 does not have the Spirit of Excellence, there was not the Spirit of faith as well and more. So beloved, like me, don’t limit the flow by listing just 7. Stay in the teaching of the Fullness of the Spirit, period!

The Bible says that upon one stone shall be seven eyes, and in Revelation the seven eyes were called the seven Spirits of God as well. The book of Revelation is a book of signs and symbols, 7 is the number of completeness, wholeness, nothing missing and nothing broken, it’s the number of FULLNESS.

Thus, the same way that before the throne there were the seven Spirits of God, talking about the FULLNESS OF GOD’S SPIRIT, He indwells the believer like that also, for we are the temple of God, we are Abba’s headquarters address here on earth.

In every Believer, the same way Christ had the FULLNESS OF GOD’S SPIRIT without measure (John 3:34), we have the SPIRIT OF GOD WITHOUT MEASURE as well.For as He is, so are we in this world.

THE SACRIFICE OF Christ opened the door way for all believers to be filled with all the fullness of God’s Spirit without measure.

Say this with me: I AM FULL WITH THE FULLNESS OF GOD! I HAVE THE SPIRIT OF GOD WITHOUT MEASURE! IN ME IS THE FULLNESS OF GOD’S HEAD MADE COMPLETE. GLORY!

… And round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle’ (Revelation 5:6-7).

These four beasts in the scripture above are ministering spirits that picture Jesus in diverse ways. They picture Jesus’ earth walk, His death, burial and resurrection in types and shadows. How is this?

Firstly, the four beasts were full of eyes, meaning that they are full of revelation and light, for He that his eyes is single, his whole body will be full of light. And light speaks of the revelation of our true Light (JESUS); it speaks of insight into the realities of the results of His finished works, and insight into deep truths. For the entrance of the Word brings light, and gives understanding to the simple.

Secondly, the first beast full of eyes was like a lion. This is a picture of Jesus in the book of Matthew; where Jesus is well mirrored as the King of the Jews. It’s also the picture or revelation of Jesus as THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.

Thirdly, The second beast full of eyes was like a calf, these is the picture of Jesus as the untiring One and laboring servant worker on behalf of man as typified more in the Book of Mark. It is also the picture or revelation of Jesus as THE LAMB OF GOD that has taken away the sins (past, present and future) of the whole world.

Fourthly, the third beast full of eyes had the face of a man. This is the picture of Jesus in the book of Luke, where He is referred to as the Son of Man more often. It is also the picture or the revelation of Jesus as THE WORD THAT BECAME FLESH.

Finally, the fourth beast full of eyes was like a flying eagle. This is the picture of Jesus as the Mighty God, THE LORD THAT CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN as conveyed in the Book of John.

Thus, the four beasts before the throne say to us that Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and He is the same One that took all our sins (past, present and future), and this same Jesus is the Word of God that became Flesh, He is also our Lord that came down from Heaven. Glory!

JESUS IS THE central revelation and principal part of scriptural truth. Amen!

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME! HE IS MY A-Z!

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come’ (Revelation 4:8).

In part 56, I explained that these four beasts full of eyes are ministering spirits that tell us more about the One on the throne, JESUS! The first beast tells us that this Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah; the second beast tells us that He is the Lamb that took away the sins (past, present and future) of the whole world upon Himself; the third goes on to tell us that this Jesus is the Word of God that became flesh; and the fourth beast tells us that this same Jesus is our Lord from Heaven. Our opening Scripture tells us that each of the four beasts has six wings full of eyes. Thus the total number of wings they have is twenty four (6+6+6+6= 24). Wings in this case speak of protection, eternal security. Look at this scripture, “He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler” (Psalms 91:4).

We already know that twenty four elders, who represent the two generations of saints before and after the cross of Jesus, were all seated round about the throne too and there are twenty four wings as well. This would therefore mean that all the elders have a wing for their covering. That is to say that in Christ we are all secured. Our salvation is eternally secured.

We can also understand that the ministering spirits also symbolize that this same Jesus is our Protector. In Him we are eternally secured. He is our shield and buckler.

At the end of the verse we see the ministering spirits worshipping Yahweh. Thus, they point us to Yahweh! He is the One that has done all things for us and much more. Halleluiah!

CHRIST HIMSELF IS our security and safety; it’s in Him that our salvation and eternal security lies – not in any effort of ours.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY PROTECTOR! HE IS MY SHIELD AND BUCKLER; IN HIM I AM ETERNALLY SECURED AND ETERNALLY FORGIVEN!

And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth forever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat down on the throne. And worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne’ (Revelation 4:9-10).

My friend, this is true worship. It’s worship from the twenty four elders, who represent all the saints both before the Cross of Jesus and after His cross, to the One that sat on the throne. It’s a worship born out of what these elders saw the four beasts do and represent.

Hence, they worshipped when they saw that the One on the throne was Jesus and the Lion of Judah (symbolized by the first beast) and that this same Jesus was the same One whom John the Baptist saw and said, “Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the whole world,” and also that by this one sacrifice we have been perfected forever (the second beast).

They also saw clearly in the third beast that this same Jesus was the very Word of God that made all things and outside of Him there was nothing made that has been made. And this same Word of God became flesh and died our death; this is why you see that even the content of their words of worship in vs. 11 says “for thou hast created all things.”

In the fourth beast they saw that this same Jesus is our Lord from heaven. He is the true Bread that came down from heaven and whosoever eats this bread, unlike the manna in the wilderness, will live forever. And finally they saw that the twenty four wings of the beasts were made each a covering to them, depicting to them that this same Jesus is there eternal redemption. He is their shield and buckler. In Him they are eternally secured.

My dear, true worship is born out of the revelation of Jesus and His finished works: even the twenty four elders cast down their crowns and worshipped at the time they saw the beasts, how they mirrored Jesus and his finished works and revealed His glory. They had seen a revelation of the One who sat on the throne and who lives forever.

TRUE WORSHIP IS born out of a revelation of Jesus and His finished works.

Say this with me: THANK YOU MY DEAR LORD JESUS CHRIST, YOUR ETERNAL LOVE TOWARDS ME IS FOREVER SWEETER THAN WINE! THANKS FOR LOVING ME!

And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals’ (Revelation 5:1).

The sealed book in types and shadows represents man’s forfeited inheritance due to Adam’s fall. By this word forfeited is meant something lost as a penalty for wrong doing.

The seven seals (seven is the number of fullness and completeness) mean that there is no access at all to this inheritance, because the access has been completely blocked (sealed).

In Revelation 5:2, John saw “a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book(meaning: who is worthy to pay the brutal price for man redemption and deliver to man his glorious inheritance again) and to loose the seals thereof (meaning: and take upon himself the consequences and punishments of man’s sins–past, present and future).

In vs. 3 the Bible declares that “no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth was able to open the book (meaning: no man was worthy to pay the brutal price for man’s redemption)… John…wept much, because no man was worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon (meaning: John wept because no man was worthy to pay the price for man’s redemption and deliver Abba’s glorious inheritance to mankind.

However, here lands the good news, in vs. 5, one of the elders told John, “weep not: behold (i.e. chazah in the Hebrew, which means, see with the eyes of a prophet, see with the eyes of the Spirit, see with the eyes of faith that), the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”

Beloved, Christ has loosed the seven seals that prevented our access to Abba’s glorious inheritance. That is to say, Christ by His death on the Cross paid the FULL price for man’s redemption. And His sacrifice was actually an overpayment.

Not only that, He has prevailed and opened the book for us. That is to say, He has released the full measure of the fullness of God upon us by His death, burial and resurrection. The fullness of God’s blessings is upon us now, because of His finished works!

THE Lamb of God prevailed and opened to us an eternal access into the fullness of our glorious inheritance in prepared by God for us.

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME! Halleluiah!

And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth’ (Revelation 5:6).

In vs. 5 of our opening text, John was told that One had opened the book and removed the seven seals, that was the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, who gave mankind unlimited access to all the glorious riches of Abba.

But then as John looked to see the Lion of the tribe of Judah, he didn’t see a Lion, he instead saw a Lamb as though it had been slain and it had seven horns and seven eyes. The Lamb’s seven horns represented completeness of authority and perfect enthronement, while His seven eyes were a picture of the Spirit of God in Him without measure.

Beloved, the Lion of the tribe of Judah is the same Lamb that took all our sins (past, present and future). This same Lamb, Jesus, which was sacrificed for our sins, rose up as the Lion of the tribe of Judah. By the sacrifice of the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the whole world, the book was opened and the seven seals (i.e. all hindrances) were removed. Thus, we now have access legally and vitally to all the benefits of Jesus’ finished works now.

THE LAMB’S DEATH is our victory over all oppositions and His resurrection our access into glory.

Say this with me: BECAUSE OF THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST, TODAY I AM RICH, I HAVE ALL THE MONEY I NEED, BECAUSE GOD HAS MADE ALL BLESSINGS AND FAVOUR TO COME TO ME IN ABUNDANCE NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

…the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of the Almighty God’ (Revelation 19:15).

From the scripture above, the winepress is a typology of the “fierceness and wrath” of the ALMIGHTY GOD. This scripture is actually one of the scriptural basis for me explaining in our previous studies that the processes by which wheat becomes bread, the oil press brings forth the olive oil and the winepress brings forth the wine are all pictures of the crushing and fierce judgments of God that came upon Jesus on our behalf, as a result, today He is our true Bread that came down from heaven, He is our true Oil and He is the true Wine which we partake of at the Communion table.

Let’s take a moment to see the olive press guide. It explains that olive berries are put in the press and they get crushed with a huge millstone. The first press produces extra virgin (green) oil, which is used to oil the lamps that supply LIGHT to the Jewish temple. The oil from the second press is used as MEDICINE, while the oil from the third and last press is used to make soap for CLEANSING.

This is a picture of what happened to Jesus starting from Gethsemane. GETHSEMANE means OIL PRESS. This was where Jesus was first pressed in a TIME OF DARKNESS, His sweat was as it were of great drops of blood, so that we will always be in the LIGHT and shine forth as LIGHTS OF THE WORLD.

The second press took place after Jesus was brought from Gethsemane and was scourged with many stripes. In that way, Jesus became our MEDICINE, because by those STRIPES we are HEALED.

The last press, of which the oil is used for cleansing, happened at the cross, when Jesus shouted “My God, My God, why has Thou forsaken me,” and there followed a straight three-hour period of darkness. At this point Jesus was made sin, HE ABSORBED ALL OF HUMANITY’S SINS IN TO HIS OWN BODY, AND THUS, SERVING AS OUR TRUE CLEANSER.

He was crushed under the fiery indignation of a holy, righteous God, suffering the judgments and penalties for ALL our sins. HIS BLOOD HAS CLEANSED us of ALL our sins (past, present and future).

BY THE SACRIFICE of Christ, you have been eternally exempted from the fierceness of the wrath of the ALMIGHTY GOD.

Say this with me: THANK YOU JESUS, FOR ALL YOU DID FOR ME VIA THE CROSS!

And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped Him that liveth forever and ever’ (Revelation 5:14).

The word “beasts” above in the Greek is “zoa,” and it means “living Ones or living creatures,” it was not the Greek “therion,” which was rendered as “beasts” in Revelation 13. The word “Elders” in our text is in the Greek “Presbuteros,” it is never used to refer to angels, and the Elders were distinguished from angels in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 21:10-14 tells us clearly that the twenty four elders are a type of or represent the names of the twelve tribes of Israel (a picture of the saints before the Cross of Jesus) and the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb (a picture of the saints after the Cross of Jesus).

The “seats” for the twenty four Elders in the book of Revelation is the same word in the Greek that is translated “thrones,” and the actual floor of the throne room is made of a sea of glass. Thus, in Christ you have been enthroned. In Christ you reign as a King and Priest and you walk on a sea of Glass. That is to say, you live and walk on a sea of great and beautiful things in abundance.

YOU ARE A king and a priest enthroned with Christ and you reign in live vitally.

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire’ (Revelation 10:1).

My friend, every time you feel condemned, it is not from God. Revelation 10:1 above talks about the rainbow round about Jesus’ head, picturing a rainbow mentality, a mentality of no condemnation, no guilt, no judgment, no shame and no death against us. You might want to ask, “Pastor Gee, How did you get that?”

Answer: The first time the rainbow was mentioned in the Bible was when Noah came out from the ark and gave a thanksgiving sacrifice and God accepted His offering and He swore never to destroy the earth with flood again, and the proof or sign God gave to man to see and remember this was the rainbow sign. What God promised and did was unconditional.

Isaiah 53 speaks of the Sacrifice of Jesus, while Isaiah 54 speaks of some of the results of the sacrifice of Jesus. And speaking of the Sacrifice, the Lord said “For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my loving kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee”(Isaiah 54:9-10).

Here the Lord’s promise of no more rain to Noah which was confirmed with the rainbow sign is likened with no more condemnation, no more anger or judgment from God. Therefore, when you see the rainbow sign, don’t just think no more Noah’s kind of rain, also rejoice and be reminded that there is no condemnation against you, because of the sacrifice of Jesus. Be reminded that God is not angry with you. And He can never be angry with you.

THE JUDGMENTS OF God has passed over us and we are free today to live in His love.

Say this with me: IN CHRIST, GOD IS NOT ANGRY WITH ME, HE CAN NEVER BE ANGRY WITH ME, HE LOVES ME TODAY, TOMORROW, AND FOREVER.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six’ (Revelation 13:18).

The scripture above tells us that this is wisdom, let the man that has understanding go for details. My dear, there is wisdom for the big picture. Otma is the wisdom that sees the big picture. And also there is wisdom for small details; Sachal is the wisdom that sees the small details.

Otma is the spirit of wisdom; it gives you and makes you see the big picture from the throne room. Otma is the big picture that says, God has given you the land that flows with milk and honey, while Sachal is the day to day instructions on how to get to the promise land. Sachal tells you how to vitally enter the Promised Land.

My dear, today, many believers know the BIG things God wants to do through them, but don’t know the details on how to get there. Dearie, don’t be like that! It’s good to know the big picture, but also lay hold of the details on how you will get there vitally. Don’t make plans or lend money out or do a contract just based on sight of your eyes and the hearing of your ears, but by inner consciousness, based on the leading of the Spirit, based on Sachal steps.

This is the solution: the spirit of wisdom is imparted. The spirit of the Word imparts wisdom. It brings out Christ our wisdom from the inside of us onto the outside. Feed on the word, feed on the spirit of the word of God, let that be your foundation, for it’s on the foundation of the gospel one can easily work in true wisdom vitally.

Christ is your wisdom. He enables you through the Spirit to locate both the big picture and the little details of fulfilling your dreams in life.

Say this with me: I WALK IN WISDOM, I WALK IN OTMA WISDOM, I WALK IN SACHAL WISDOM TOO VITALLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS! THE WISDOM OF GOD I WALK VITALLY IN IS MULTI-DIMENSIONAL IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six’ (Revelation 13:18).

This scripture shows us that even numbers in the Bible have meaning in types and shadows. Take a look at this scripture, “After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had” ([* John 5:1- 4). *]

Bethesda is derived from two words in the original tongue: “beth,” which means house and “seda,” which means grace, thus, Bethesda means “The house of grace.” It has five porches, which is a picture of grace, since we know that 5 is the number of grace. Did you observe that in the house of grace, the healing by the water, when stirred by the angel, was based on jumping into the water and not how they lived their lives? Wow! However, that was a measure, when Jesus (who is grace and truth personified) came on the scene; He showed us that under pure grace healing and miracles are for all. And there are no protocols, just receiving by faith. Halleluiah!

By the fifth time Noah’s name was mentioned in the Bible, he found grace in the sight of the Lord. By the fifth time Ruth’s name was mentioned in the Bible, she also found grace too. The Hebrew for ‘5’ is ‘hey,’ and the same word, ‘hey,’ has a picture of a window. God breathed the letter ‘hey’ into Abram and Sarai, and they both became Abraham and Sarah, and then after the promise child was born.

6 + 6 + 6 = 18years, that will give you the years of the woman that was bound (a picture of bondage) and when she met JESUS (who is grace and truth), she was set free from bondage and having to look at the dust by reason of being bent in bondage (dust is a picture of sin, guilt, condemnations, shame and reproach) into looking at JESUS (Luke 13:10-17).

The truth of the gospel is what makes you vitally free. Feed on Jesus and His finished works always.

The first question in the Old Testament was written in Genesis 3:9 (“Adam, where are you?”). The first question in the New Testament leads us to the solution (Mathew 2:2:“where is he that is born the king of the Jews?”).

Beloved, don’t make plans or lend money out or do a contract just based on sight of your eyes and the hearing of your ears, but by your inner consciousness. The Pharisees walked by their senses, “they reasoned amongst themselves,” while JESUS walked by His inner consciousness; He walked by the leading of God’s Spirit. “He perceived what was in their hearts.” See the outcome:

Jesus walked on water, the Pharisees did not.

Jesus lived the supernatural life, the Pharisees did not.

Jesus had miracles following him, the Pharisees did not.

Follow the inner consciousness in you by following the leading of the Spirit of God.

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life’ (Proverbs 4:23; NIV).

The Bible tells us that the heart is where the issues of life spring forth from. What we allow to enter our hearts will affect our thoughts, actions and even our bodies. In other words, the condition of one’s heart will determines the course of their life.

That is why Jesus, who bequeathed to us His peace, tells us “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Beloved, focus on the shalom-peace Jesus has given to you via His finished works. Feed on Jesus always.

Dear, we are to guard our hearts and not let ourselves spiral into negative thoughts, worry and fear. And the easiest and best way to guard our hearts is by constant feeding on Jesus and keeping our eyes gazingly and absorbingly on Him. The book of wisdom tells us that a peaceful and cheerful heart promotes health. Feeding on Jesus’ finished works automatically kills fears, worries and troubles from their roots, and, consequently, health and wholeness flows unabatedly. Glory to God!

I know there are many things you will want to guard, e.g. family, finances, health etc. But God’s way is, “above all, guard your heart.” The truth is, when you focus on guarding your heart by feeding on Jesus and His finished works, automatically, every other areas of your life will be guarded and will be flourishing vitally to the Glory of God.

Say this with me: JESUS AND HIS FINISHED WORKS MAKE UP THE CENTRE OF MY LIFE! MY EYES AND HEART ARE FIXED GAZINGLY AND ABSORBINGLY ON THE FINISHED WORKS OF CHRIST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’ (Colossians 2:3).

Wisdom is insight into realities. And In Christ are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge hidden, not some, but ALL TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE ARE IN CHRIST. And this same Christ lives in the believer. 1Corinthians 1:30 tells us that Christ has been made unto us wisdom.

Say this out loud: “CHRIST IS MY WISDOM!”

As you with open face behold the finished works of Christ, ideas and insight on how to go about your business and concepts that will dissolve doubts will automatically flow through you and you will be irreversibly transformed vitally from glory to glory.

Solomon in Proverbs told us about the great and excellent precious hidden treasures wisdom will give to us. Beloved, today Christ who is our wisdom has legally given us all those great and wonderful treasures already. In fact, what He has given to us is far much more.

Proverbs 8:18 says, “Riches and honour are with me wisdom; yes durable riches and righteousness are with me Wisdom.” For us believers, Christ is our wisdom, and He lives in us, thus, because Christ who is our true wisdom lives in us we have riches and honor, yes we have durable riches and righteousness now. Glory!

Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God, is wisdom personified; and wisdom (the Gospel of Christ) gives you the mindset of the just. As you behold and feed on the glory of the Lord resting upon the riches of His grace, a mindset, the mindset of the righteous, will be automatically formed in you, and this mindset will automatically manifest in your response to issues, and wisdom is already manifestation.

CHRIST IS YOUR wisdom made from heaven, you can never be confused, blacked out or be in the dark. You have the light of life in your spirit.

Say this with me: I HAVE WISDOM, CHRIST IS MY WISDOM! AND BECAUSE CHRIST IS MY WISDOM, I HAVE RICHES AND HONOUR, YES I HAVE DURABLE RICHES AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOW. GLORY!

Wisdom speaking says Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength’ (Proverbs 8:14).

Wisdom gives you an insight into realities, it gives you an insight into all learning and science. Wisdom gives you an insight into hidden things, including enigmatic and symbolic languages. And Christ is our wisdom today, glory to God.

That’s to say, feeding on the Gospel of Christ will give one vital insight into realities, insight into ALL learnings and science, insight into hidden things, treasures, enigmatic and symbolic languages. Wow! This is awesome. Glory to God! I love the Gospel, it is the too good to be true news of what Jesus has done for us.

Solomon before Jesus Christ came had the greatest wisdom, but what he had was just a tip of the wisdom the finished works of Christ has given to us, Halleluiah. Jesus before the cross was greater than Solomon, how much more the resurrected Christ that has been fully glorified above everything and every being in heaven, earth and hell.

And this same Christ is our wisdom now. Oh dear! This cannot be fathomed. My God! This is BIG. Christ is in you the believer, the wisdom that created this world is in you. How much of this wisdom have you and I tapped into?

CHRIST IS YOUR WISDOM.

Say this with me: MY FRUITS ARE BETTER THAN GOLD, YEA, THAN FINE GOLD; AND MY REVENUE THAN CHOICESTSILVER; BECAUSE CHRIST WHO IS MY WISDOM LIVES IN ME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction’ (Proverbs 1:7).

 The word “fear” in the scripture above is from the Hebrew word “yirah,” meaning “religious reverence”. However, Jesus Christ in the Gospels translated it better by referring to this fear of the Lord as to simply “worship the lord.” Thus, it’s receiving Jesus Christ as Lord over your life that is the beginning of wisdom, and only fools despise wisdom (the revelation of Jesus and His finished works).

Wisdom gives you an insight into realities, it gives you an insight into all learning and science. Wisdom gives you an insight into hidden things including enigmatic and symbolic languages. The Bible says that in Christ Jesus are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And this same Christ is our wisdom today, glory to God.

Beloved, since Christ is our wisdom, let’s see some things Proverbs says about wisdom. One of them is that “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom (receives Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) and the man that getteth understanding (feeds on and understands the finished works of Christ).” This is it. Vitally happy, Blessed, and to be envied is the man that has Jesus Christ and understands His finished works.

Let’s see the next verse: “For the merchandise of it (Christ and His finished works)is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold (but yet, His sacrifice has given us silver, fine gold and rubies. In fact, His sacrifice was an absolute overpayment for our Shalom effortless prosperity).”

The next verse says “she (Jesus Christ who is our true wisdom)is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her(Christ and the results of His finished works).”

Length of days is in her (Jesus’) right hand; and in her (Jesus’) left hand riches and honour.  Her (Jesus’) ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her (Jesus’) paths are peace.  She (Jesus Christ who is our wisdom) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her (Him): and happy is every one that retaineth her (continues to feed on Jesus and His finished works).”

 If you have Jesus Christ, whatever Proverbs says wisdom will give to a man, Jesus Christ who is our true wisdom has given you those things and much more. His sacrifice is an absolute overpayment for anything you will ever need in life. Feed on Jesus and His finished works on a daily basis.

HAVING CHRIST AND the revelation of His finished works is the greatest spiritual and mental investment one can make.

Say this with me: IN CHRIST, I HAVE LENGTH OF DAYS IN THE NAME OF JESUS! IN MY HANDS ARE RICHES AND HONOUR IN THE NAME OF JESUSAND MY WAYS ARE FULL OF PLEASANTNESS AND MY PATHS ARE FULL OF SHALOM PEACE IN THE MIGHTY NAME JESUS.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding’ (Proverbs 4:7).

The word “principal” above is from the Hebrew word “reshith,” which means “first, supreme and major.” Thus, the scripture above is saying that “wisdom is the first, supreme and most important major thing, therefore, ensure you get wisdom, I say with everything you have, ensure that you understand wisdom” [paraphrased]. And since CHRIST IS OUR WISDOM; the scripture above can also read thus, “Christ and His finished works is the principal, primary, first, supreme and the most important major thing, therefore, receive Christ as Lord and Savior over your life, I say with everything you have ensure you feed on and understand Christ and His finished works.”

Beloved, in Christ (the Gospel of Christ) are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. It’s in the mysteries of the Gospel of Christ that all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge have been hidden. Therefore, go for the Word, with everything you have: be it money, time, eyes, and wealth, ensure you progressively feed on Jesus and His finished works. Get to understand in details the divine exchange that happened as a result of His finished works for you. And you will see what will vitally happen to you.

The next few verses of our opening scripture say that “Exalt her (Jesus and His finished works, give emphasis on feeding on the Gospel of Christ), and she (the Word of Grace will build you up, give you inheritance and this Gospel vitally) shall promote you: she(the Gospel of Christ, vitally) shall bring you to honour, when thou dost embrace her(the Gospel). She (feeding on the Gospel of Christ, vitally) shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she (the Gospel, vitally) deliver to you.”

GO FOR THE gospel of Jesus Christ, therein is the fullness of your status and inheritance in Christ revealed.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY WISDOM! THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS THE FIRST, SUPREME, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT MAJOR THING IN MY LIFE! I GO FOR THE GOSPEL! WITH EVERYTHING I HAVE, I GIVE ATTENTION TO UNDERSTANDING THE CORRELATION BETWEEN HIS FINISHED WORKS AND ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word’ (Acts 6:1-4).

Beloved, excellence is superior performance producing superior results. Excellence is not efizzy or branding. It is superior performance that produces superior results. Branding is giving an impression that you are very good at what you do, and that’s cool, but if you will brand your product, ensure you have the substance.

In the life of Moses, there were miracles and results before Jethro advised him about administration and rebranding. Thus, Moses had the substance before branding. Branding does not come in where there is no substance.

In that same token, from the Scriptures above we see that the Apostles used the substance to get many results, before they then saw the need for division of labor, which can be likened as branding in the marketplace. Branding does not come in where there is no substance.

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business’ (Acts 6:3).

Integrity means being together or wholeness. Integration comes from the word integrity. Integration is putting some things together, while differentiation is putting them apart. Integrity is being together, that means your thoughts, your words and actions agree and align. That means that when you speak or say something people can hold that word knowing that you will make it good.

Integrity means that you will use the whole of your resources to ensure that the word you have given will be made good, and even if there will be changes you say it on time.

How weighty are your words when you speak them to people and also to yourself? How committed are you to the truth you profess. We must come to realize that the things we say and do can affect others.  Therefore, let your light so shine BEFORE MEN that they may SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS and glorify your Father in Heaven.

Beloved, before God, as Christ is now so are you now in this world.  But before men, it’s the agreement between your words and actions that make men consider you as one that hasan honest report. In Acts Chapters 6, when the Disciples wanted to give responsibilities in the church, one of the criteria they looked for was “men of honest reports.”

In Christ, all things are already yours! Thus, today, God is more interested in making you, than in giving you, because the power to produce excellent and great results rests with those that are made. E.g., if you are a multi billionaire in dollars, you will still want your son to go to school, wouldn’t you?

BE RELIABLE! PEOPLE end up trusting the man who keeps to his word.

Say this with me: I AM A BELIEVER WITH HONEST REPORTS, FULL OF THE HOLYGHOST AND WISDOM IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation’ (Daniel 5:12).

When there is a drunkard surgeon and a Christian surgeon, but the drunkard surgeon has 95% success in the surgical theater, while the Christian surgeon has 40% success in the surgical theater. Most likely People would always go for the drunkard surgeon. But when a doctor is very skillful and is a believer at the same time, like Daniel in the scripture above, then he stands a greater chance to meet people’s needs and fulfill destiny

Beloved, study to show yourself approved, develop yourself; be prepared so that when the spot lights vitally shine upon you, you won’t produce “k–leg” distorted results. Improve on every attempt. Always improve.

As believers, let the work we do be above reproach, let people see your work and bring more customers to you, not just because they know you, but because of your excellent jobs or services.

Your seeds and grace will vitally make you labor more than others. Know that because of your seeds and grace you have strength to carry through, strength to labor.

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee’ (1 Timothy4:15-16).

Beloved, be consistent in what you do. In spite of what you get or didn’t get, be consistent, be in your office, so that people can locate you. Are you a carpenter today, tomorrow a tailor, another day a barber? Be consistent brother!

He whose eye is single, his body will be full of light. Be consistent in the true Gospel of Grace which you have believed, and to that which God has called you to do. Be consistent in keeping to timing in your work, office, ministry and personal life. Be consistent in believing this true Gospel of Christ wholeheartedly.

How is it that a believer goes to seek help from a witch doctor? What do you truly believe? Integrity, excellence, diligence, honesty and consistency make you dependable in the hearts of people. They make people trust in you, and believe in you.

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life’ (Proverbs 4:23).

The Bible says GUARD YOUR HEART WITH ALL DELIGENCE. It says to guard your heart more than anything else you have. The Bible also tells us the reason for this instructions, it says out of your heart flows the issues or springs of life. That is to say the way your life will turn out to be is a Cause and Effect of the words planted in your heart.

Beloved, what words have you been allowing to gain root in your heart? What have you been planting in your heart? Let the word of God dwell in you richly in ALL wisdom. Music is another area that must be carefully monitored when it comes to words. Satan is very subtle; he can easily plant his message in your heart through popular music. He can plant in your heart seeds of lust, hate, greed, deception of riches etc. through music.

The word of God is a bag of seeds. Seeds will always produce harvest either good or bad. The word of God is the seed you need to plant in your heart to grow vital success, love, wealth and healing. We must remind ourselves that we are on God’s team, and the battle has already been won via the Cross of Jesus. The type of crop you harvest is determined by the type of seeds you sow: either word-seeds from God’s word, or word-seed from the world system.

The primary fight that every believer faces is the fight of faith; it is the fight for right believing! Right believing will always result or give birth to right living. Right believing and faith comes by the Gospel of Christ. The words you receive into your heart are very important. Give attention to the gospel.

Say this with me: I AM ON GOD’S TEAM, AND ALL BATTLES HAVE ALREADY BEEN WON VIA THE CROSS OF JESUS. I LIVE IN VICTORY, PROSPERITY, SUCCESS, ABUNDANCE, WEALTH, AND HEALTH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! THE WORD SEEDS PLANTED AND ROOTED IN MY HEART ARE THE WORDS OF GOD’S GRACE AND POWER IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled’ (Proverbs 18:20).

Beloved, God’s word brings healing to your physical body, peace to your mind, and nourishment to your soul. Words have the power to accelerate or delay your progress altogether, therefore, we must train ourselves to speak words that are based on faith in the finished works of Christ.

When we use faithless, negative words in our communication, we trap ourselves needlessly.

Training yourself to speak faith filled words is vital whether it’s during your prayer time, or while driving in your car, or while in a conservation or while at work etc. make a conscious effort to make progress in this area every day.

Once you master your words, you can vitally change your present and future circumstances.

Speak the scripture aloud concerning your situation until you are grounded in the truth.

If you have spoken a lot of negative words, begin the process of reversal today.

The opening scripture says, “A man’s belly is satisfied by the fruits of His lips…” That is to say your words have an influence on the vital manifestation of your desires. What have you been saying about yourself and circumstances?

And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. [6] And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do’ (Genesis 11:5-6).

Beloved, While we cannot stop certain thoughts from crossing our minds, we can choose whether to accept them or not. Accepting every thought that crosses your mind is like accepting every gift basket that shows up at your door, even if it is full of rattle snakes.

What you give attention to is what you will ultimately act on. This is why it’s important that you learn to distinguish between God’s word and the words of the world’s system/Satan.

Once words are spoken, we must either make the choice to receive or disregard them.

If you allow negative words to linger in your mind and take root in your heart, they will influence the actions you take.

My friend, You will vitally reach your divine destination if you embrace God’s word and allow it to change your thoughts, emotions, decisions, actions, habits and character. If your mind is renewed by God’s word, your emotions will follow suit.

God wants you to vitally live a life of abundance. He wants you to vitally experience joy, peace, happiness and love in your daily life, He wants you to vitally have more than enough wisdom, knowledge, courage, righteousness consciousness and strength.

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich’ (2 Corinthians 8:9 KJV).

My dear, God is a big God, His plans for you are far better than you can imagine. God wants you to vitally live a life of abundance. He wants you to vitally experience joy, peace, happiness and love in your daily life, He wants you to vitally have more than enough wisdom, knowledge, courage, righteousness consciousness and strength. He wants you to have more than enough food, clothing, transportation, recreation and money.

However, without an understanding of what God desires, and how he operates, you won’t vitally receive everything He has set aside for you. Mastering God’s word and understanding its power to direct the course of your life is a key to vital mastery in life.

Taming your thought is only achieved from its roots by feeding and speaking forth God’s word.

Feeding and meditating on God’s word is the only way to introduce God’s thoughts into your life.

Although positive thinking is beneficial, the highest level of thinking you can achieve is that which is governed and controlled by God’s word.

When you feed on the word of God, you inject words that God has spoken specifically for you – words that have the power to vitally change your destiny forever.

GOD’S WORD CONTAINS thought-shaping, destiny-molding words which God spoke about you specifically. Release the ultimate destiny-fulfilling power by feeding on those words consistently.

Say this with me: I AM A BUNDLE OF SUCCESS! WHAT IT WILL TAKE THE BEST OF MEN 50 YEARS TO ACHIEVE, IN A FEW YEARS I’M ACHIEVING THEM IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: [4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ’ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

Emotions are feelings of pain, pleasure or displeasure. Emotions move you to do something. Emotions can move you in a certain direction either towards or away from the will of God for your life. However, Establishing your thoughts and Emotions on the foundation of God’s word is important for vital change and success. Become the gatekeeper of your mind. (2 cor. 10:3-5). Create your atmosphere with the word of God in your mouth. Take charge of your emotions. Understand your emotions. Deal with negative emotions by beholding Jesus and His finished works. Speak to your problems rather than speak about it.

My friend, when kept in proper context, feelings can draw you closer to purpose and your destiny. When emotions are out of control, they can cause tremendous damage to others and us. Yes! God designed you to express yourself through emotions. However, emotions are not meant to control you. Dearie, God loves you and is personally interested in every aspect of your life, including your emotional well-being.

Beloved, the word of God is powerful, and when you feed/plant it in your heart and speak it in faith, it will eradicate every negative emotion. God gave you emotions, but He never intended for your whole life to be govern by them. As a believer, you have authority over your emotions. Keep your feeling submitted to God’s word and you will avoid making emotional decisions that will lead you out of God’s will for your life. The word of God is the only way to successfully manage your emotions whether as a male or female.

Just as you have authority over your circumstances- your finances, physical body or relationship - you likewise have authority over your emotions. Jesus died so you could have a better, more rewarding life vitally. That includes living a life unhindered by negative emotions.

My dear, you can be vitally emotionally invincible because Jesus has already made provisions for that through His perfect sacrifice. Understanding the depths and width of God’s unconditional love for you will automatically heal every emotional hurts and help you make quality decisions.

Anger is an emotion. Anger itself is not particularly bad, but how it’s directed can be an issue (Eph. 4:22-32).

God knows you could get angry at one point or the other but you should handle your feelings with the word and make the right choices.

In the Old Testament, Nehemiah got angry about what the Israelites were going through, and it motivated him to do something about it positively (Nehemiah 5:1-9, Proverbs 16:32).

NOTE:

Control your feelings, and never act solely on the basis of emotions. Carefully consider the appropriate responses.

Don’t act in haste, and don’t allow anger to rule you or primarily determine your actions and reactions.

Feeding on God’s unconditional love helps to automatically put your emotions in line with God’s word.

THROUGH THE SACRIFICE of Christ, your emotions are invincible and you have full authority over them by the same sacrifice.

Say this with me: GOD GAVE ME EMOTIONS SO THAT I COULD EFFECTIVELY EXPRESS MYSELF, I AM TO GOVERN MY EMOTIONS AND MY EMOTIONS ARE NOT TOGOVERN ME. I AM THE CUSTODIAN OF MY EMOTIONS, AND MY EMOTIONS ARE NATURALLY SUBMISSIVE TO THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IN JESUSNAME!

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life’ (Proverbs 4:23).

When the phone rings at odd hour, most people think, “Oh dear, it must be some bad news.” They don’t think, “I wonder what the good news is that it cannot wait till morning!”

My dear, when we hear, “The boss wants to see you,” instinctively, most people think, “Oh dear, this is not good.” But how do we know that it is not going to be about a promotion?

Most people’s minds are inclined toward the negative. Beloved, guard your mind, for out of it flows the wellsprings of life! Guard it by keeping your gaze on Jesus and His finished works! Let the Gospel become the foundation of your life, and not the “they say” or “our people say” you hear on the streets.

My friend, assuming you are going through a challenge right now, or you are believing God for something big, have a confident expectation of good not because of your works, but because the finished works of Christ has done it all for you! And Christ alone is more than enough for anything you will ever need or desire in life.

You might say, “Pastor Gee everywhere is red! Oh! Boy! I just hope that this thing you talk about works like for real, considering the fact that we are under some sort of economic recession.”

Biblical hope is not “I hope so,” but “I know so!” Have a confident expectation of good things always happening to you because you are not like the people of the world. You are a child of the living God. You have a Savior watching over you. There are many angels that have been given charge over you. And greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). There is every reason for you to have a confident expectation of good things happening to you! Glory to God!

IRRESPECTIVE OF THE economic situation of your geographical location, you can always have a confident expectation that good things are always coming your way. Your progress is neither tied to the economy nor your job; it’s based on what the finished work of Christ has done for you.

Say this with me: CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ANYTHING I WILL EVER NEED OR DESIRE IN LIFE!

‘… The priest shall set a value for it, whether it is good or bad; as you, the priest, value it, so it shall be’ (Leviticus 27:12).

Beloved, if your colleague says that this week is going to be a lousy one because the new boss is mean and you disagree and say that it is going to be a blessed week. Both of you will go through the same week, but with very different outcomes. While your friend’s week will indeed turn out to be a lousy one, yours will be filled with the favor of the Lord.

In the Old Testament, when someone brought what he had to the priest for valuation, whatever the priest assessed the value of the item to be, so it would be. If he assessed it to be of good value, then it would be of good value. If he assessed it to be of poor value, then it would be of poor value.

Today, you are also a priest because of Jesus’ blood (Revelation 1:5-6). And “as you, the priest, value it, so it shall be.” If you assess your year to be one of financial breakthroughs, so it will be for you. If you assess your life to be filled with divine health, so it will be for you.

My dear, actually, you have more authority than the levitical priests of the Old Testament. They were of the Old Priesthood of mortal men. But you are of the greater and “forever” priesthood of Jesus (Hebrews 7:8, 17)! And not just that alone, you are a king-priest (Revelation 1:6). In other words, you are a king as well as a priest! And as a king, your assessment is also binding, because where the word of a king is, there is power (Ecclesiastes 8:4)!

My friend, this means that you have a double portion of assessment power. Therefore, boldly assess good things for your life, and it will be so for you! Don’t wait, just go ahead and do so right now.

YOU ARE BOTH a king and a priest under the forever priesthood of Jesus! You have double assessment power to determine the course of things around you.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you… Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid’ (John 14:27).

My dear, the night before Jesus died, He gave His peace to His disciples — “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you…” This peace was not just for His disciples, but also for us today. We have His peace!

The moment you believe in Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of Peace, He comes to live inside you. And when the Prince of Peace resides in you, every blessing that you will ever need in respect to your soundness and wholeness is already inside you.

You might say, “Pastor Gee, if this is true, then why do I still see problems in my health, finances, family and relationships?”

The answer is a troubled heart. That is why after Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you,” He added, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

A troubled and fearful heart works like fingers that clamp down hard on a water hose. The supply of water is flowing from the tap, but little or nothing is coming out at the other end of the hose. God’s ever-present supply of blessings toward you is like the water flowing freely from the tap. But you don’t see or experience the blessings when you allow your heart to be gripped by worry or fear.

So when fearful, anxious thoughts come, remind yourself of Jesus’ words: “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Even when things appear to get worse, say, “Lord, I refuse to worry about this. In the midst of all this, I see the finished work of Christ. He said, ‘It is finished!’ So my child’s healing is accomplished! My marriage is blessed! My debts are cleared! I will let not my heart be troubled by these things.”

Beloved, I cannot “let not” for you. Your family and friends cannot “let not” for you. Only you can “let not your heart be troubled.” So guard your heart from being troubled. You don’t have to guard your career, reputation, children or even health. When you guard your heart, the power of God will be released to guard everything else for you!

YOUR PART IS not to guard your life, marriage, family, job, finance and relationships; but to guard your heart from being troubled simply by believing in the power of the finished works of Christ. S you do this, you will experience the power of Jesus guarding the rest.

Say this with me: BECAUSE I HAVE THE PEACE OF THE PRINCE OF PEACE IN ME, MY HEART CAN NEVER BE TROUBLED! IN FACT, ALL THE FEAR FILES IN ME HAS BEEN ETERNALLY DESTROYED AND FOREVER EMPTIED FROM THE RECYCLE BIN. HALLELUYAH!

My dear, trying to live life all by yourself can be very tiring especially when you are doing everything you ‘think’ you know you should do. These things come indifferent forms. It could be the emotional, financial, spiritual and mental pressures that come to you. Staying with Jesus in fellowship is the key to a victorious life vitally.

My friend, think about Jesus, He was faced with some of the things that you are faced with today and He knew exactly how to handle those things. There were times when He had bills to pay, there wasn’t any physical cash on Him yet He wasn’t stranded. He them paid without any sweat (Matthew 17:23-27).

When He was to feed the thousands and all He had was meager resources of a little boys lunch of fish and bread; He didn’t despair and feel helpless. He trusted God and every need was met debt free (Mark 6:35-43). Jesus travelled in bad weather conditions and reached His destination in safe condition (Mark 4:35-39).There were times when loved ones around were sick and some even died but the sick got healed and the dead were raised (John 11:1-3, 33-34). To crown it all, He had people who were constantly opposed to every move of His ministry and wanted Him dead (John 5:18).

No wonder the Word of God says, “We don’t have a High Priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. TAKE THE MERCYACCEPT THE HELP” (Hebrews 4:15-16; MSG).

In all these situations, what really amazes me is the way and ease with which the situation is handled. Jesus always knew what to do. This is the reason the Bible says that Jesus has been made wisdom to you (1 Corinthians 1:30). The invitation today is to stop trying to figure your life out and simply walk and work with Him. When you are with Him, He'll show you how to handle it - these are the unforced rhythms of grace. Learn to fellowship with Jesus. Practice His presence and be more conscious of Him than you are of all your problems and you will see Him cause things to happen for you.

Say this with me: IN EVERY SITUATION OF LIFE, I COME OUT ON TOP VITALLY, AND BECAUSE I HAVE JESUS IN ME AND WITH ME. I AM WELL RESTED IN HIS LOVE AND I CAST ALL MY CARES UPON HIM BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW TO HANDLE ALL THE ISSUES THAT COME MY WAY! MINE IS A LIFE OF EASE POWERED BY GRACE.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth’ (2Timothy 2:15).

Let me ask you this question, you said that God heals, but He gave you accident and broke your leg to teach you a lesson. Ok, then why do you go to a hospital for treatment, is it that you don’t want to learn the lessons of God?

I want to ask you another question, you said that you were rich before, but now God gave you poverty to make you humble, and that it is His will for some believers to be poor, But yet you go to work seven days a week, always trying to make more money, even if it means you not going for church services sometimes! My friend, who are you deceiving? You are contradicting yourself. Hmmm! All these are the results of mixture (mixed teachings that are not balanced or based on gospel truths).

This is the solution dear, “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth, rightly dividing between covenants” (2Timothy 2:15).

NOTICE THE BIBLE saying to rightly divide the Word of Truth. But what mixture teaching does is that it mixes or combines the Word of Truth with Law or Sense Knowledge in an unwholesome manner.

Say this with me: I AM A WORKMAN THAT NEEDS NOT TO BE ASHAMED, I RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD OF TRUTH, I RIGHTLY DIVIDE BETWEEN COVENANTS IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!

Wherefore, brethren covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues’ (1Corinthians 14:39).

The people of Israel were perpetually surrounded by armies far larger than they, but as soon as one young man gave a victory prophecy, though they were still surrounded, they were at rest, because that prophecy was their note of victory. The Old Testament folks held prophecy with great value, Paul admonished the same for us in 1Corinthians 14.

Prophecies release the wind of the Spirit. See what happened when Ezekiel prophesied over the dry bones he spoke words of power, and the next thing we saw were strange results. Beloved, today you have a great High Priest, Jesus Christ, who has ascended on high, you should prophecy on the basis of what He has done for you through His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension.

When prophetic words, perceived in the light of the finished works of Christ, are released, power is channeled. Your harvest lies in those prophetic words, and any place or country you go to, like tracer clouds, the words will follow you to final fulfillment in the name of Jesus.

As the prophetic word goes forth, that’s the answer, it has come. It lies in the words. Prophetic words don’t expire, so therefore, we perpetually live in great days, just as have been prophesied by men of old. And just as the Word of God comes in overlapping waves, prophetic words as well come in overlapping waves.

THE PROPHETIC IS the heritage of every believer. Son boldly speak words in line with your faith and desire, and you will surely see results vitally.

Say this with me: I AM RICH; I HAVE ALL THE MONEY I NEEDBECAUSE GOD HAS MADE ALL FAVOURS AND EARTHLY BLESSINGS TO VITALLY COME TO ME IN ABUNDANCE. THUS, THE TANGIBLE MONEY ANOINTING IS WORKING IN ALL THAT CONCERNS ME, THE ANOINTING FOR ABUNDANCE IS UPON ME HEAVILY AND IT’S MIGHTY IN MANIFESTATIONS NOW! IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.

…for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy’ (Revelation19:10).

Beloved, the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. The record or report of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. The message of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy and the inspiration of all New Testament prophecies.

The report of Jesus, as given in Isaiah 53, is the driving force of all New Testament prophecies, the message of the Christos is the Spirit (inspiration) of all New Testament prophecies. The Word of Grace is the Spirit (inspiration) of all New Testament prophecies. The Gospel of Christ is the bedrock for all prophecies.

Internalize those prophecies that have been spoken of and to you base on the Gospel of His Grace. Sometimes you might even keep receiving and saying the same prophecies over and over, keep at it every time the anointing comes upon you. But for those prophecies that are not based on the finished works of Christ dustbin them, toss them off of your hand like hot potatoes.

THE GOSPELOF Christ and of His finished works is the spiritual basis for seeing all blessings manifest vitally.

Say this with me: THE TANGIBLE MONEY ANOINTING IS WORKING HEAVILY IN MY LIFE AND BUSINESS, THE ANOINTING FOR ABUNDANCE IS MIGHTY IN MANIFESTATION IN MY LIFE AND WORK IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. AND I AM PROSPERING, EXPANDING AND INCREASING MIGHTILY IN ALL THINGS AND SIDES IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.

The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]’ (James 5: 16b; AMP)

Beloved, the believer has the ability to cause significant change in this earthly realm through prayer. Unfortunately, many believers wallow in defeat because they would rather grumble, complain and hold a pity party instead of pray.

The power of God is latent in many Christians mainly due to ignorance or laziness. Some don’t know what they have; others know but have never acted on the Word. The systems of this world will quake as we release vibes through prayer!

My friend, The way we cast our spirits over places, people, kingdoms and institutions to positively influence them for kingdom purposes is through earnest, heartfelt and continued prayer. Elijah changed the destiny of a nation through prayer. Elijah had a purpose when he went up to pray. We have a purpose when we tongue for vibes. It is casting our nets over places and drawing the harvest to shore. It is imposing the culture of the kingdom on the heathen cultures of this world. It is making the gentiles obedient in word and in deed.

Dearie, As you pray this way, you may feel opposition in the spirit; pray until you breakthrough and then keep praying until dominion rises in your spirit. Most a times, the dominion will rise as words of power bursting forth through you….that is the sword of the spirit that tames the darkness of this world. Once this happens, rest knowing that you “… shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands” (Isaiah 55:12).

Say this with me: AS I TAKE MY PLACE IN PRAYER, I SUBDUE DARKNESS VITALLY AND ESTABLISH GOD’S KINGDOM. I AM A WORLD CHANGER.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).

Before Jesus went back to heaven, He told His disciples to “wait for the promise of the Father” (Acts 1:4). There are thousands of promises in the Bible, so which promise was He referring to?

The early church knew which promise Jesus was referring to, because He had told His disciples, “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which you have heard Me speak about; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now (Acts 1:4-5). Jesus was referring to the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:1-4).

My dear, Jesus wants you to know the value of the promise of the Father because He said, “you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me…” He did not say, “You shall do witnessing,” but, “you shall be witnesses.” In other words, your very person will be a witness to Him!

This is because the power you receive when you are filled with the Holy Spirit is the same power that so anointed Peter that the sick were laid on the streets for his shadow to fall on them and heal them (Acts 5:15). Even handkerchiefs and aprons from Paul’s body were so saturated with the anointing of the Spirit that when they touched the sick, people witnessed diseases and evil spirits leaving the sick (Acts 19:12)!

That same power came upon me while I was still a student in secondary school, way before people got to know me as Pastor Gee, as a student, I saw deaf ears opened through me, many growths and tumors instantly disappearing while ministering to the sick and many much more. The good part is that, as people came in contact with me, their lives were changed by the power of the Holy Ghost and they became distribution centers of the power of God. Glory to God!

AS A SPIRIT-FILLED believer, you have power, the same power that the early apostles walked in, God gave it to you. USE IT!

Say this with me: AS A BELIEVER, I HAVE POWER! GOD GAVE IT TO ME, AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE IT! I HAVE MIRACLE WORKING POWER! OH! I HAVE POWER. GLORY TO GOD!

For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful’ (1 Corinthians 14:14).

Beloved, God has given us a powerful prayer gift—praying in tongues, which is not limited by distance, time or head knowledge. When you pray in tongues, you could be praying for your future or even a loved one overseas. You won’t know what you are praying unless God tells you. This is because your “understanding is unfruitful”—your mind is not involved.

But Pastor Gee, I must know what I am praying for!”

I might not know all what I am praying about when I pray in tongues. I simply trust His goodness and pray in tongues for everything that He has planned for me to come to pass in His perfect timing. And by so doing my life has been moving upwards and forward! There were times I wanted to pray in tongues for 12 hours straight, and I ended up praying for 36 hours!

In Streams of Grace Global Ministries, we spend 10 hours straight every first Saturday of the month praying in tongues as a church we might not know everything we have been praying about, we simply trust God’s goodness and pray in tongues as the Spirit gives us utterance, and our lives and ministry have been moving upward and forward alone, with so many signs, wonders and miracles everywhere. Glory to God!

Beloved, don’t stop praying in tongues just because you don’t know what you are praying. You could be praying for the safety of a loved one in a life and death situation, especially when you feel an urge to pray, because you sense danger; pray! Pray until you sense a release as the burden is lifted. The Holy Spirit knows exactly what is going on, who is in danger and how to pray for deliverance (Romans 8:27).

You may say, “Well, I can just pray in English.” You can, but your prayer will be very limited, because you don’t know everything. It is better to pray in tongues, because the Spirit knows all things.

You don’t belong to the natural, limited realm. You belong to God who is unlimited! So pray in tongues, and see great things happening for you and through you.

SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES will save out of harm’s reach.

Say this with me: I DON’T BELONG TO THE NATURAL, LIMITED REALM. I BELONG TO GOD WHO IS UNLIMITED! SO I PRAY IN TONGUES AND SEE GREAT THINGS HAPPENING FOR ME AND THROUGH ME IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN!

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. [4] No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. [5] And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully’ (2 Timothy 2:3-5; KJV).

Discipline in Webster Dictionary is defined as “training that corrects, molds or perfects mental faculties or moral character.”

Beloved, Grace doesn’t make you lazy, Rather like Apostle Paul you will be saying, “I labored more than you all, yet not I, It’s the grace of God that helped me labor. Beholding JESUS and His finished works should produce discipline in your life vitally.

Discipline in your prayer life: Mark 1:35, 6:46;

Discipline in your thought life and emotions: Luke 22:42;

Discipline in studying and meditating on the word: Ps.119:97-100; Lk.2:46-47;

Discipline in your speech: John 12:50; and

Discipline in the way you live your life.

Being disciplined in the word of God means putting yourself through training on a daily basis. It takes discipline to turn off the television and open your Bible for some quality study and meditation time, especially when you are tired and have had a long day at work.

Discipline has to kick in when God wakes you up at 3am to pray! Discipline in both the natural and spiritual aspects of your life will create habits that lead to vital prosperity. Disciplining yourself in the area of prayer, thought life, study, meditating on God’s word and speech will vitally position you for success.

GRACE DOES NOT make you lazy, it rather makes you labor more than others.

Say this with me: I HAVE DISCIPLINE AS A GOOD SOLDIER OF CHRIST! AND I FULFILL DESTINY TO THE FULLEST IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; [6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. [8] 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. [9] But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins’ (2 Peter 1:5-9; KJV).

The verse 9 of the above scripture indirectly tells us that if you see afar off what Christ through His finished works has done for you, and don’t forget the extent that you have been forgiven of all your sins, the characteristics of verses 5-7 will be seen in you!

That’s to say; Christ Consciousness should vitally produce faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance (self-control), patience (staying power), godliness, brotherly kindness and love (agape) in you.

Allowing GOD’S word to develop godly character in you should be given emphasis. Character is critical to your vital success in life. Most likely you won’t go very far with bad character. Go with the Gospel of Christ not with the norm.

Basing your character on society’s standards can be disastrous. Societal definitions of what’s right and wrong change from one moment to the next. You might not vitally or easily fulfill the fullness of God’s destiny for you if your character is bad or based on societal norms that contradict the Gospel of Christ.

The Latin meaning of character is “to mold and create.” We are God’s representatives on the earth. Character is choosing God’s way over feelings or logic and it involves being the same behind closed doors as you are in the presence of others.

Grow in love, grow in the consciousness of Abba’s love and grow in character. Stay focused on God’s unconditional love for you, as you go through the seasons and phases of spiritual development. Consistency in doing the things you know how to do, such as praying, studying the word and fellowshipping with the brethren, is a vital key to fulfilling your destiny vitally.

Make the choice to do what’s right, because you are righteous in Christ Jesus, and prepare for destination overflow.

Developing character is a process that might take time. Don’t skip vital stages of spiritual development on your way to destiny. Even when it seems that things aren’t happening as quickly as you would like, don’t give up, don’t cave in, don’t quit. Remain focused on beholding the glory of the Lord. As you do so, you will see yourself vitally transformed from glory to glory!

You have the power to make your way vitally prosperous. You have to decide that you want to succeed vitally. There are many roads to your future, but I encourage you to select the one that leads to your destiny.

Developing character is a process that might take time. Don’t avoid the process; go through it with faith and a positive attitude. Don’t try to change by your own strength. To enjoy the lasting fruit, rely on God’s love to change you from inside out!

Say this with me: THE WORD OF GOD IS BEEN FORMED IN ME! I WALK AND LIVE AS A LIVING EPISTLE! I WALK IN GLORY AND WEALTH IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath ANOINTED us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts’ (2 Corinthians 1:21, 22).

Beloved, the Bible says, “But ye have an UNCTION from the Holy One, and ye know all things … But the ANOINTING which ye have received of him abideth IN you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same ANOINTING teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him” (1 John 2:20, 27).

In these two verses from first John, the terms “unction“_ and _“anointing” are used in English in a way that suggests that they might be different words. But the Greek word is the same in both verses.

Every believer has an anointing—unction—that abides within him, because the Holy Spirit comes in us at the New Birth. In Romans 8:9, it says, “Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.” The Spirit of Christ is the Holy Spirit.

We’re not referring here to being filled with the Holy Spirit; that is a separate experience from the New Birth, and they are two distinct spiritual experiences. There is a dual working of the Spirit of God in the life of a believer: the New Birth and the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

In His teaching to the woman at the well of Samaria, Jesus said, “The water that I shall give him shall be IN him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14). This refers to the New Birth.

In the seventh chapter of John’s Gospel, Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, OUT of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (vs. 38). This refers to the infilling of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus told His disciples, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth… for he dwelleth WITH you, and shall be IN you” (John 14:16,17).

With the New Birth experience alone, you can be ministering healing or the supernatural without the infilling of the Holy Ghost! This is possible with faith in the Word. Whatever the anointing can produce, faith in the Word can do likewise. Glory to God! The Scripture doesn’t say, “These signs shall follow those who are filled with the Holy Spirit”; it says, “… these signs shall follow them that BELIEVE… they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mark 16:17, 18). Glory to God!

I didn’t say it’s not important to be filled with the Holy Ghost, I am filled with the Holy Ghost, and I have had times when I found myself praying in the Holy Ghost for more than twenty hours straight! What I am saying is that before one is filled with the Holy Ghost, he or she as a believer is not helpless, and what the anointing can produce, faith in the Word can do likewise! Even after one is filled with the Holy Ghost, it’s still important to live by faith in the Word alongside faith in the anointing! Glory to God!

Say this with me: I HAVE A UNCTION FROM THE HOLY ONE! I AM NOT HELPLESS! GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD! GLORY!

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth’ (Acts 1: 8).

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:20). He is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son, Jesus Christ. In the Old Testament, God the Father was there and more pronounce, while Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit were there also in shadow forms e.g. the angel of God’s presence, Melchizedek etc. In the four gospels, we see more of Jesus Christ (Grace and reality); the Holy Spirit and God the Father were there also.

Finally, when the church began, the Holy Spirit came upon all the believers, they became full of power and spoke in other tongues. He is with us now; not only He, the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ are both with us, the Church, now. In you is the fullness of the Godhead made complete.

John 16:7-11: “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.”

The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. In the Greek, it is the name ‘allos parakeletos.” Its meaning is that He is our helper, teacher, guide, counselor, strengthener, intercessor, stand by, transporter etc… He is another comforter of the same kind and quality like Jesus Christ.

From the scripture above, He reproves the world of sin (singular: which speaks of the sin of not believing in Jesus Christ). To reprove is to give another or a second proof; and it means that a proof of the sacrifice of Jesus was given to the sinner when Jesus died, but the sinner didn’t accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, hence, more proves will be given by the Holy Ghost to him/her.

However for the believer, we are not of the world, because we have received the Lordship of Jesus Christ and now we are sons of God. Thus, what the Holy Spirit gives us proves of and reminds us of is that righteousness is now a gift; it’s something we have received through the divine exchange on the Cross. Jesus took all our sins on the Cross and His righteousness is now ours.

He reminds you of what the sacrifice of Jesus has done for you… He is your helper, not your accuser to remind you of your sins, No! A thousand times No!

He is God and Hebrews 8:12 says: “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” He, the Holy Spirit, does not remember your wrongs, and He knows you have being justified from all things and that God does not impute sin against you, because of the sacrifice Jesus. Also, part of His job is to remind you of this same fact, halleluiah. The Holy Spirit can never punish the believer; the characteristics of love in listed 1 Corinthians 13 are the very nature of the Holy Spirit.

Say this with me: THE HOLYGHOST IS MY HELPER AND NOT MY ACCUSER! HE IS IN ME TO HELP ME FULFILL DESTINY! HE IS IN ME TO SHOW ME MORE OF WHOM I AM IN CHRIST JESUS! AND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME!

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever’ (John 14:16).

This scripture shows us that the Holy Spirit abides in us forever, unlike what some people think that He leaves when you make mistakes and comes back later… He abides in us unconditionally in Love forever, because of what the sacrifice of Jesus has done for us. Glory to God!

There are two major introducing events the Holy Spirit performs in the life of a believer:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. New Birth, at the point of being born again and

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The infilling with the Holy Ghost.

AT THE POINT OF BEING BORN AGAIN

The Holy Spirit is in a believer like a well of water springing forth the results of the Zoe life, which is the life of God. This was the same thing Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well… John 4:14: “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” Prophet Isaiah said, “With joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3).

This takes place automatically at the point of being born again.

Ezekiel 36:25-27: “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”

The Bible says, “By One Spirit we have being baptized into one body” [This is the Body of Christ.]. The Holy Spirit is the One that induces the very nature of righteousness God has in that person that accepted the Lordship of Christ. This life, coupled with receiving the abundance of grace, which has been made available to us by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ will cause us to reign in life as believers.

Say this with me: THE HOLYGHOST IS MY HELPER AND NOT MY ACCUSER! HE IS IN ME TO HELP ME FULFILL DESTINY! HE IS IN ME TO SHOW ME THE UNSEARCHABLE RICHES I HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS! AND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME!

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).

The experience described in the above scripture happens at the point of being filled with the Holy Ghost. The word “power” in the above scripture is the dynamic ability to cause changes; it is the ability to effect changes effortlessly. At the point of being filled with the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit empowers the believer to be a witness of this Gospel of grace.

The Holy Spirit is not just helping you to witness Christ to others, What the scriptures says is more than that, the scripture didn’t say you will be witnessing, its more than that. It says this power will make you the embodiment of a witness!

That’s to say, people will see you and say I know this fellow before now! But he has completely changed! They will see you are a proof that the Gospel is true! This power will make you a living epistle. Glory to God!

Beloved, when you got filled with the Holy Ghost, you received the same power that rose up Jesus! The resurrection power is at work in you! You have the dynamic ability to cause changes, this means that the way the power manifests itself changes, meaning when there is a sickness case the power will be present to heal; when it’s a deliverance case, the power will deliver; when it’s a financial challenge, the same power will supply abundance! That is, the power is multi-dimensional in nature. And it’s in you. Glory to God!

Say this with me: THE RESURRECTION POWER IS AT WORK IN ME! I HAVE THE DYNAMIC POWER TO CAUSE AND EFFECT CHANGES IN THE WORLD! THE POWER OF THE HOLYGHOST IN ME IS MULTI DIMENSIONAL BY NATURE! GLORY!

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified’ (John 7:38-39).

Prophet Ezekiel spoke of this river of the fullness of the Spirit too; he said that, it will go to the Dead Sea and the desert to give life to everything that was dead.

Ezekiel 47:6-9: “And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass, that everything that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh.”

Therefore, receiving the Holy Spirit is not for us to live passively, but for us to do the work of the ministry (fulfill our purpose).

Beloved, when you got filled with the Holy Ghost, you received the same power that rose up Jesus! The resurrection power is at work in you! You have the dynamic ability to cause changes. And this means that the way the power manifests itself changes, in the sense of when there is a sickness case, the power will be present to heal; when it’s a deliverance case, the power will deliver; when it’s a financial challenge, the same power will supply abundance! That is to say, the power is multi-dimensional by nature. And it’s in you. Glory to God!

THE RESURRECTION POWER IS AT WORK IN YOU! YOU HAVE THE DYNAMIC POWER TO CAUSE AND EFFECT CHANGES IN THE WORLD! THE POWER OF THE HOLYGHOST IN YOU IS MULTI DIMENSIONAL BY NATURE. GLORY!

Say this with me: THE RESURRECTION POWER IS AT WORK IN ME! I HAVE THE DYNAMIC POWER TO CAUSE AND EFFECT CHANGES IN THE WORLD! THE POWER OF THE HOLYGHOST IN ME IS MULTI DIMENSIONAL BY NATURE. GLORY!

And THEY were all filled with the Holy Ghost and BEGAN TO SPEAK with other tongues, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE (ACTS 2:4).

Receiving the Holy Spirit is very simple; you simply ask God and receive. You receive by simply speaking the utterance the Holy Spirit gives you. The Holy Spirit gives the utterance, but man does the speaking.

ACTS 2:4: “And THEY were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and BEGAN TO SPEAK with other tongues, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.”

“They” is the subject of the sentence. They did the talking. The Holy Spirit gave them the utterance.

ACTS 10:44-46: “While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For THEY HEARD THEM SPEAK WITH TONGUES, and magnify God.”

ACTS 19:6: “And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and THEY SPAKE WITH TONGUES, and prophesied”

Some of the benefits of praying in tongues are the following scriptures.

1 Corinthians 14:4: “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself.” Speaking or praying in tongues is a means of spiritual edification, or building up the believer spiritually.

1 Corinthians 14:2 says, “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit HE SPEAKETH MYSTERIES.” One translation of the New Testament says, “He speaks divine secrets.” Paul is saying here that God has given the Church a supernatural means of communication with Him. Praise the Lord!

Paul stated in the 14th verse of this same chapter, *“For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.“_ Notice that he said, _“My spirit prayeth.“_ The Amplified Bible adds, [[“My spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me] prays.”*]_] When you pray in tongues, your spirit is in direct contact with God, who is a Spirit, and you are talking to Him in a divine, supernatural language. Praise God!

Say this with me: I THANK MY GOD, THAT I SPEAK IN TONGUES MORE THAN YOU ALL! Go ahead and start praying in the Holy Ghost! And if you are not filled with the Holy Ghost, Receive ye the Holy-Spirit right now in the name of Jesus!

Now go ahead and give God praise for the infilling of the Holy Ghost that you have received! As you give Him praise, words you don’t know will be coming forth from inside of you, go ahead and speak them, as you do so, you will see more words coming! Speak them louder! Glory to God! These words are the utterances of the Holy Ghost and like in Acts 2:4, you are doing the speaking! Praise God forever more!

And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; [18] they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover’ (Mark 16:17-18; KJV).

Jesus did not say that just a few should speak in tongues. He said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe.” “Them” is plural. It means all. One of these signs was, “They shall speak with new tongues” (Mark 16:17). See some additional benefits of praying in tongues in the following scriptures:

Paul said in Romans 8:26, *“for we know not what we should pray for as we ought.“_ He did not say we did not know how to pray, because we do know how to pray. We pray to the Father in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is how to pray. But just because I know how to pray doesn’t mean I know what to pray for. The verse in its entirety reads, [[“Likewise the Spirit also HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”*]_]

Jude 20 says, *“But ye, beloved, BUILDING UP YOURSELVES on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost._ The amplified version reads, [[“But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit;*]_]

Isaiah 28:11, 12 says, “For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said this is THE REST wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is THE REFRESHING: yet they would not hear.”

1 CORINTHIANS 14:15-17: “what is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also…For THOU VERILY GIVEST THANKS WELL…” Halleluiah!

Say this with me: “I THANK MY GOD, THAT I SPEAK IN TONGUES MORE THAN YOU ALL!” Go ahead and start praying in the Holy Ghost! And if you are not filled with the Holy Ghost, Receive you the Holy Spirit right now in the name of Jesus!

Now go ahead and give God praise for the infilling of the Holy Ghost that you have received! As you give Him praise, words you don’t know will be coming forth from inside of you, go ahead and speak them, as you do you will see more words coming! Speak them louder! Glory to God! These words are the utterances of the Holy Ghost and like Acts 2:4, you are doing the speaking! Praise God forever more!

Glory to God! This shows us what should classify our relationship with the Holy Ghost.

Beloved, when I was young, before I understood what the inward witness was, I heard a renowned minister say the primary way God leads His children is through inward witness. Hmm! I never agreed with that, because as for Pastor Gee, the way I primarily heard God then was through visions, this visions were accurate than most of the folks around me that were being led by inward witness! Over the years, God started speaking to me through other means. However; visions became a faculty to me. Glory to God!

This experience made me to study along this line, and I found out that there is nowhere in the Bible where it says the major or primary way God leads us is through the inward witness! Rather the word of God is a more sure word of prophecy! The Gospel of Christ is the bedrock for all leadings, it is the major way God leads us, and every other ways are subject to the word of God. Glory to God!

The Holy Spirit leads us primarily through the word in the true light of the Gospel of Christ. Though He can lead us in other ways like;

1. The inward witness (Acts 27: 10-14, 20-21; Romans 8:16): it is an inaudible inner persuasion given by God’s Spirit. It is a persistent check in your heart, an inner conviction or perception, a deep knowing and certainty about something or someone.

2. The inward voice (Acts 24:16, Romans 2:15, 9:1; 13:5) it comes from the inside.

3. The voice of the Holy Spirit (1 Sam 3: Acts 10:19: 13:1-3): this is the voice of God’s Spirit speaking to us from the outside. It is so real that one could actually look around thinking that someone spoke to them.

4. Others include visions, dreams, seeing and knowing, perceiving etc.

Any which way you feel the Spirit is leading you, it has to conform to the true light of the Word of His Grace, if not it means that you are in error. The testimony of Christ is the Spirit of prophecy, meaning that the testimony of Christ and His finished works is the bedrock for all New Testament’s prophecies and leadings.

Say this with me: THE HOLYGHOST IS MY HELPER AND NOT MY ACCUSER! HE IS IN ME TO HELP ME FULFILL DESTINY! HE IS IN ME TO SHOW ME THE UNSEARCHABLE RICHES I HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS! AND HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME!

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith towards God, of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment’ (Hebrew 6:1-2).

The foundational Doctrines of Christ are:

1. Repentance from dead works;

2. Faith towards God;

3. Baptisms;

4. The laying on of hands;

5. Resurrection of the dead and

6. Eternal judgment.

1. Repentance from dead works

“…not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works” (Heb 6:1).

The word repentance is from the Greek word “Metanoea,” which means to CHANGE ONE’S MIND; while dead works are things you do and you believe that by doing it you will gain righteousness with God.

Therefore, to repent from dead works is to change your minds from thinking or believing that the good things you have done will make God accept you, prosper you, bless you or protect you; but rather, focus solely on what the sacrifice of Christ has done for you and on how that God has accepted and blessed you already, because of Jesus Christ. See these scriptures below:

knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ , even we have believed in Jesus Christ that we may be justified by faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified” (Galatians 2:16).

Galatians 5:4; AMP: “If you seek to be justified and declared righteous and to be given a right standing with God through the Law, you are brought to nothing and so separated (severed) from Christ. You have fallen away from grace (from God’s gracious favor and unmerited blessing)”

Galatians 3:5-6; The Message: “Answer this question: Does the God who lavishly provides you with his own presence, his Holy Spirit, working things in your lives you could never do for yourselves, does he do these things because of your strenuous moral striving or because you trust him to do them in you? Don’t these things happen among you just as they happened with Abraham? He believed God, and that act of belief was turned into a life that was right with God.”

We have been declared eternally righteous and justified from all things irrespective of whether we have done right or wrong; and that’s not a product of obeying the Ten commandments, but by accepting the sacrifice of Christ. Therefore, God wants us to put our focus not on ourselves, not on our good works or our wrong deeds, not on our qualifications, but solely on what Jesus has accomplished for us all.

Say this with me: CHRIST IS MY QUALIFICATION! CHRIST IS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS! CHRIST IS MY PROSPERITY! AND CHRIST ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME!

….and of faith towards God, of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment’ (Hebrew 6:1-2).

Faith towards God is one of the foundational Doctrines of Christ. The Bible says in Gal 3:11-12, “…no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, the just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith…”

When we speak of faith in the Kingdom, we talk about God’s grace. The life of a believer is a life of faith. In the New Testament, faith comes effortlessly through feeding on the sacrifice of Christ. The demand for the supply of faith is not on us but on Jesus Christ.

Roman 10:17: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Christos).” The meaning is that the Word of His Grace (Christ) is our automatic faith supplier. God is pleased when our faith is not on ourselves, but is on the sacrifice of Christ. For God has said concerning Jesus: This is my beloved son IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED…” Therefore, our faith in the sacrifice of Christ pleases God and grants us unending automatic access to vitally receiving anything from God.

For faith cometh by hearing and hearing the word of God (Christos).” From this scripture, faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ, which is also called the Word of His grace or Word of Faith etc. This word focuses on what the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has accomplished for us all. Glory to God!

Feeding on The Law (Ten Commandments) imparts fear, condemnation and death; while feeding on Grace and Truth (Jesus Christ) automatically imparts us with supernatural faith, righteousness consciousness, and Life.

Say this with me: I AM NOT UNDER THE LAW, BUT UNDER GRACE! THEREFORE I WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT! IN CHRIST JESUS, I AM BLESSED TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER! GLORY TO GOD!

…of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment’ (Hebrew 6:1-2).

The word ‘baptisms’ is derived from the Greek word ‘baptizo,’ which means to immerse or be completely plugged into something. There are majorly two baptisms talked about under the New Covenant. These are: Baptism into Christ and Water Baptism.

Baptism into Christ[+:+] scripturally, this is the same thing as the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. This is what happens when a man is born again, by the Holy Ghost. He is buried into Christ in identification. He, thus, partakes of his death, burial and, consequently, resurrection into a new life.

Know you not as many of you as baptized into Christ, are baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death, that like Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father, we too should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:3-4).

For by the one spirit, we are all baptized, into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:13).

In Other words the Holy Spirit baptized you into the church, to become a member of Christ’s body, flesh, and of his bones (Ephesians 5:30). “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” (Galatians 3:27). To be in him means to be immersed into Christ.

Note: The baptism of the Holy Ghost, Baptism into Christ & Being born again refers to the same thing–to receive Christ into your heart. This baptism occurs at new birth; it is different from water baptism.

You might say, “Pastor Gee, I taught when one is baptized in the Holy Ghost he or she gets to pray in tongues.”

Let me say this; in the Scriptures, the Apostles never called receiving the Holy Ghost with an evidence of speaking in other tongues the “Baptism in the Holy Ghost,” they rather called it “being filled with the Holy Ghost or infilling of the Holy Ghost.” And every time they used the word baptism it refers to either being born again or water baptism.

Moreover, the Latin word for baptism means to deep into or be completely immersed! At the point of being born again we are immersed in to Christ by the Holy Ghost, which is why the Scripture says, “if any man be in Christ he is a new creature…” This is the picture of baptism into Christ, while at the point of being filled with the Holy Ghost; Jesus Christ fills us up with the Holy Spirit. It’s an infilling at this point and not immersion.

Say this with me: I AM A MEMBER OF CHRIST’S BODY, OF HIS FLESH, AND OF HIS VERY BONE! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS COMPLETELY BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Know ye not as many of you as baptized into Christ, are baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death, that like Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father, we too should walk in newness of life’ (Romans 6:3-4).

Baptism into Christ is the same thing as the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. This is what happens when a man is born again, by the Holy Ghost. He is buried into Christ in identification. He thus partakes of his death, burial and, consequently, resurrection into a new life; while, Water Baptism is to be totally immersed into water. Water baptism is a burial into a typical grave of water and a resurrection out of the grave into a new life which is lived unto God and righteousness. The burial into the grave of water is an outward expression of the death of sin, the death of the old man; while, the resurrection is the outward expression of the new life to righteousness and God. When a man is born again, he is baptized into Christ, this is more important than water baptism.

Baptism by immersion in water is one of the sacraments of the Church of Christ, like the Communion Table. Water baptism is by immersion. It is the immersion of one completely into water; and is an outward expression of what happened to a man when he got born again, or baptized into Christ.

Water baptism is an outward show of what the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has done for us. Therefore healings and miracles should accompany water baptism, because, like the Communion Table, you are appropriating by faith what Jesus Christ has done on the Cross for you.

He took your sins (past, present and future) and gave you righteousness (eternal acceptance by God) as a gift. Thus, you can receive vital dominion over sin during Water Baptism. Jesus took your sicknesses and by His stripes you are healed, therefore, during Water Baptism you can vitally receive your miracles. Glory to God!

Jesus became poor on the Cross and unleashed a flood tide of prosperity on you. Thus, during Water Baptism, jump into the vital experience of the flood tide of prosperity you have in Christ Jesus. Halleluiah! He received all our guilt, shame and condemnation; thus, there is therefore now not one single bit of condemnation against us because he was condemned in our place.

Water Baptism is an act of obedience of faith by which the believer shows to the world the inward righteousness he already enjoys in his heart through faith in Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

You might say, “Pastor Gee, is Water Baptism equivalent to salvation?”

NO. Water Baptism is no substitute for salvation. It does not remit sins. Does taking the Communion Table make one born again? Of course not! However, when you are born again or baptized into Christ, you can take advantage of the Communion Table and Water Baptism.

Say this with me: I HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED IN CHRIST! I AM A MEMBER OF HIS BODY, OF HIS FLESH, AND OF HIS VERY BONE! THEREFORE, MY YEAR AND FUTURE IS COMPLETELY BLESSED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

…of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment’ (Hebrew 6:2).

In the New Testament, there are some reasons for laying on of hands, such like:

To minister healing

“…and they shall lay their hands upon the sick and they shall recover” (Mark 16:17-18).

To minister the Holy Ghost

And Ananias went his way, and entered into his house; and putting his hands upon him said, brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightiest receive thy sight and be filled with Holy Ghost” (Act 9:16).

To impart spiritual gifts.

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery,” (1 Timothy 4:14).

Ordination into the ministry

as they ministered to the lord and fasted the Holy Ghost said, separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands upon them, they sent them away” (Act 13:2-3).

Another foundational Doctrine of Christ is the Resurrection of the dead. From the understanding of God’s word, death is an enemy. God never meant for man to die, but because of Adam’s disobedience, death came into the earth. The Bible says in Roman 5:17, “for if by one man’s offence, death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”

Death reigned until the obedience of Christ. Now, Christ has abolished death, 2 Timothy1:9-10, and has given us the power to choose life. In Christ Jesus, death is a choice for the believer, death cannot reign over us. And the power of God at work in us, either through faith in the Word or the tangible power can raise the dead back to life, Glory to God!

Also, all those who die in Christ have hope for resurrection. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-16, “But I would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so they also sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. In this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of Christ shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the lord himself shall descend from heaven with shout, with voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord, wherefore comfort one another”

I believe in the resurrection of the dead, because the Word of God teaches us so. And it’s two dimensional: firstly, raising the dead now through faith in the Word or the release of the supernatural. And secondly, the final resurrection as described in the above scripture, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-16.

Say this with me: THE WAVE OF SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES ARE NORMAL IN AND WITH ME! AND I WALK IN SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:’ (Hebrews 9:27-28; KJV).

When I was a young believer, the above scripture was used to condemn both believers and unbelievers, it made believers feel guilty, sin consciousness, condemned and uncertain of their future after they leave the earth. The preachers put it this way, they say: “the Bible says, ‘It is appointed for a man once to die and after that comes judgment!’ My brothers and sisters, how are you living your life? If you die now, are sure you will make heaven?” Beloved, with all respect and love in my heart, I say to you, that message is not true; it is a con, because it was taken out of Context. See what the scripture says below.

Hebrews 9:27-28, KJV: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: [28] So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

Hebrews 9:27-28, AMP: “And just as it is appointed for [all] men once to die, and after that the [certain] judgment, Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and [d]once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him.”

Hebrews 9:27-28, The Message: “Everyone has to die once, and then face the consequences. Christ’s death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.” GLORY!

After fulfilling destiny here on earth, there are two types of judgment, one for the believers and the other for the unbelievers.

Judgment Seat of Christ

The judgment seat of Christ is for the believers, it’s the seat of rewards for fulfilling destiny in Christ Jesus and for our labor of love while on earth. 1 Corinthians 3:11-15, KJV: “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. [12] Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; [13] Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. [14] If any man’s work abides which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. [15] If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

The Christian will not face the judgment seat to be condemned but to be rewarded with dominion and rulership. There is absolutely no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1; 14:10).

The Great white Throne Judgment: this is where the non–Christian will be judged or condemned for not accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Here the church also will be present together with God to pass judgment on the non- Christian (1 Corinthians 6:2-3).

Say this with me: THE WAVE OF SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES ARE NORMAL IN AND WITH ME! AND I WALK IN SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AND I VITALLY FULFILL DESTINY TO THE FULLEST IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to the Himself through Jesus Christ. And has given us the ministry of reconciliation’ (2 Corinthians 5:18; NKJV).

Beloved, ministry is a calling to partner with God to present Christ and His love to the world and to edify the Church. Ministers are not just the so-called priests, popes, Bishops or pastors; but anyone who is born again. They are ‘servants’ who selflessly and humbly submit themselves to be used by God as a blessing to people. You are a minister if you have accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ over your life.

This calling is a ‘full time’ and life-long commitment of use your God-given gifts, calling and talents to reconcile the world to God and to build up the body of Christ. There are unique gifts, and abilities given to you by God to enable you reach out to people. These gifts could be anything e.g. eloquence in speech, athletic prowess, ability to teach or preach God’s word, beauty, natural intelligence, creative ability, singing, ministry gifts, gifts of the spirit etc. It’s to be used to proclaim the life of God. This is true ministry and is Gods heart beat for those who have received the gift of salvation (Mark 16:15).

1 Peter 2:9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises (ARETHAS) of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” God wants to use you to minister and show forth His praise (ARETHAS in Greek. God wants you to show forth the praise, virtues, power, glory, wealth, honor, and prosperity of Jesus Christ now) in every aspect of your life.

In ministry, God uses you as a channel or vessel to present and enthrone His will in the lives of men. This means that you are a precious vessel or channel (Philippians 2:13) for God to use. Grace is a divine enablement from God to minister, and it is one of the means by which God partners with you to fulfill your calling. It makes you conscious of the fact that God is the one working through you to minister.

Say this with me: THE WAVE OF SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES ARE NORMAL IN AND WITH ME! AND I WALK IN SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES IN THE NAME OF JESUS! AND I VITALLY FULFILL DESTINY TO THE FULLEST IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! AMEN!

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who works in you both to will, and to do of his good pleasure’ (Philippians 2:12-13).

This scripture right after it tells you to work out your salvation, the next verse tells you it is God that is working in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure, therefore rest on the riches of God’s Grace, see God’s Grace in all you do, Grace makes all the difference…see what Paul says:

Romans 1:16:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth;”

1 Corinthians 15:9-10:

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”

Grace makes you bold and helps you to minister effortlessly and effectively. Acknowledging the Grace of God enables you to walk in the realm of the supernatural; and you acknowledge the Grace of God by beholding what Jesus has done for you.

Check out these scriptures.

2 Corinthians 3:18:

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

Philemon 6:

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”

Romans 5:17:

“…much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”

God is always willing to show you the area of your calling, so seek him in prayer by His Word. Some signs of your area of ministry could be:

*

‘… But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men… And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:’ (Ephesians 4:7-16).

Our statement of faith

This is a statement of Bible doctrines, as believed and taught by Streams of Grace Global Ministries. This statement of faith has its source in the Bible and is in total agreement with the foundational principles of the doctrines of Christ.

We believe that the Bible contains the inspired and infallible Word of God {2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21}

We believe that there is only one God eternally existent in three (3) persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost {Ephesians 4:5-6; 1Corinthians 8:6; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17}

We believe in the deity of Christ [John1:1-4; John10:30]: (a) He was born of a virgin [Mathew1:18-25; Luke1:30-35]; (b) He was conceived of the Holy Ghost; [Mathew1:18-25; Luke1:30-35]; © He died and was buried [John19:30-35]; (d) He rose again from the dead bodily [John20:25-29; Luke24:47; Ephesians 1:7]; (e) He ascended into heaven bodily[Acts 1:9-11; 1Thessalonians 4:16].

We believe in the rapture of the church and the second coming of Christ [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Mathew 24:29-30].

We believe that the finished work of Christ on the Cross provides divine healing for the body, divine health, forgiveness, remission, wholeness, success, prosperity, shalom, and salvation (sozo in Greek)…, for everyone that believes [1 Peter 2:24; Acts 3:16; Acts 9:32-35].

We believe in the works of the Holy Ghost, in the believer and through the believer [Acts 1:8; 2:4; 3:1-26; 4:5-12].

We believe in the final resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the former to eternal life and the latter to eternal judgment [Revelations 20:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:12].

UNFORCED RHYTHMS OF GRACE, DAY 276

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring’ (Acts 17:28; KJV).

Dear, a lot of Christians today are living their lives in their strength. They are working very hard in their own physical abilities to get ahead in this life . In as much as it is good to be hard working, God never intended for the New Testament saints to live their lives based on their physical abilities.

The New Testament saints should live based on Christ. The New Testament saints should live looking only to Christ and what He has accomplished for us. In him (Christ) we live, move and have our being. It is in Christ, not in our physical abilities. ‘In Christ,’ means ‘based on what He has accomplished for us on the Cross.’

Beloved, it’s In what Jesus has accomplished for us in His death, burial and resurrection we live, move and have our being. Glory! We draw everything from the finished works of Jesus.

In the book of 1 Samuel 2:9 the Bible says, “…by strength shall no man prevail.” No one shall prevail by his strength or by his physical abilities. Take your eyes off your physical abilities and put your eyes on the finished works of Jesus. Depend completely on what He has accomplished for you, this is Bible faith, this is what pleases Him and this is how we enjoy our God given victories.

My friend, many good Christians today are struggling though faithful because their eyes are on their physical abilities. They are thinking that because they have dotted their ‘i’s and crossed their ‘t’s, they should be in victories. But what ensures our victories is not what we do, but what He has done. So live in Christ, move in Him and have your being in Him.

It is easy to depend on yourself (self-efforts) for results and that ties God’s hands on your behalf. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, Not of works, lest any man should boast.” The bible clearly says, it is not by our works (self-efforts), it is by His grace. Glory!

Dearie, In Christ’ grace we live, move and have our being. By His grace we are saved, healed, delivered, and made prosperous. Glory! In Him we have our being. We have our victories, deliverances, our healings, our monies, our wife, our husband, our houses, our lands, and our all in all. Glory!

Say this with me: IN CHRISTNOT IN MY PHYSICAL ABILITIES – I LIVE, MOVE AND HAVE MY BEING. BY HIS GRACE I AM SAVED, HEALED, DELIVERED, AND MADE PROSPEROUS. I HAVE MY VICTORY, DELIVERANCE, HEALING, MONEY, WIFE, HUSBAND, HOUSES, LANDS, AND MY ALL IN
