The vital button to press


Praise is the vital button you need to press to operate in the supernatural

Praise is one of  the vital buttons you need to press to access God’s presence.

Praise isn’t a spontaneous activity. It’s not occasional acknowledgement of good deeds. It’s the only authentic tool of transferring our battle to God. And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten (2.Chr.20:22).

Praise warriors are always spectators in their fights.

Note: we are not achievers, but we are privilege receivers. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing (Jn.15:5). You’ll be gathered by men for mishandling and destruction until you abide in Christ. If a man abide in me not, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into fire, and they are burned (Jn.15:6).

Praise is the cheapest way to invite God’s presence. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praise of Israel (PS.22:3). Praise is where God live. And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundation of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bands were loosed (Acts.16:25-26).

Praise is the master key to access divine secrets. But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil (PS.92:10).

Praise with understanding provokes God to increase our substance in all realms of life. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them and they shall not be small (Jer.30:19). Then shalt the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us (PS.67:6). And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise the fishes as much as they would (Jn.6:11).

Praise in the dance is the gateway to the King’s (God) favour. But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oat to give whatsoever she would ask (Mat.14:6-7).

Praise in the middle of embarrassing situation is the cardinal mark of strong faith. Jn.6:11, Acts.16:25-26.

There are more vital buttons that you’ll need to press to operate in the supernatural but praise is a vital one.

The ignorance of Wednesday match


Ignorance

 

On Wednesday’s night, every member of my house – outsiders inclusive – all gathered in the sitting room watching England match. It was England vs Croatia night. The TV box was the center of attraction – I envied the television – all eyes fixed on the thing. Daddy’s legs move when a player shoot. I think he was supporting Croatia for the night.

Ignorant analysis flew from lips to lips. Everybody in the house had become an analyst. Noises, arguments and ignorant laughter filled the atmosphere. Adults and innocent’s children would kill themselves over an issue that brings no Penney to their pockets. Those whom nobody know are watching for the people the world recognized. A man who is coping to handle his family had already coached a team successfully with his mouth, on the sit, at the spot.

My lips was pressed. I don’t speak often. Although I was still at the place, but my mind was in another realm, I was brooding already. Thinking of how the good devil had used football in disguise to steal people’s destinies. By drawing their hearts away from Christ. Not only with football but including movies and other 21st century idols in disguise. The devil is crafty indeed.

However, after the first half of the game, I couldn’t watch anymore, I stood, I must not missed my prayer time.

Spiritual irresponsibility is the authentic root of the problems many are facing today. Discipline is the key word here. It is not how comfortable it is but it is given what it demands.

I’m a lover of the game but not at the expense of God’s interests. Football is not bad, music, movies, entertainments, all those things are not bad, but they can steal our time until we are conscious of it. And if they are stealing our time, that means they are stealing our destiny. However, our passion for them must be controlled.

 

The way to God’s presence


Nothing goes down in the hand of a praise warrior

Praise is one of the vital buttons that you must press to operate in the supernatural. Praise is not something that you do spontaneously or occasionally.

You are to thank God for what he has done, worship him for who he is and praise him for what he’ll do.

God is not moved by your moods, feelings, emotions and temperaments, or any of such things. Only if you can turn all your bitterness and complains into praise, you’ll experience the miraculous more in your life.

Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Mat.11:6). In order words, curses is he who is offended in him.

Curse is a reversal of blessings. Your will courting curses on your life if you are in the habit of grumbling and complaining. Grumblers and Murmurers are programmed for destruction. Neither ye murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyers (1.Cor.10:10).

Stop looking at what God has not done. Start acknowledging for what he has done.

Praise provokes the manifestation of God’s presence. God’s aura surrounds you in a praiseful atmosphere and burst the prison doors in all sphere of life, And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God and the prisoners heard him. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s band were loosed (Acts.16:25-26) .

Praise is the gateway to revelation. But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil (PS.92:10). Fresh oil here implies fresh revelation. Many – even pastors – are operating on stale oil. Only a praise lifestyle that  gives you the access to fresh oil. There is no revolution without revelation.

In Jesus earthly ministry, whenever he was confronted with embarrassing situation, he gave thanks and miraculous flows.

At the mountain sides, When he needed to feed 5000 uninvited guest. it will take a huge amount of money to feed  such multitudes. Jesus was too sure of the miraculous, he told his disciple to make the men sit down. He gave thanks and the supernatural exploded.

And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would ( Jn.6:11).

When Jesus healed 11 lepers from their leprosy, only one came back to give thanks. Jesus asked about remaining 10 which means he want us to come back to thank him.

The one who came back received the second touch. The remaining ten, although they were healed, but obviously the first touch wasn’t enough. They would live with the scars and stumps of the disease for the rest of their lives.

Those who praise God this way end up with explosive miracles. If you don’t thank God for the joy you have today you’ll never flow in the miraculous. Your constant praise will move God to arrange for another experience that will bring more praise.

It doesn’t leave you with much choice, praise is a commandment, Let everything that hath breath praise the lord (Psm.150:6). If you wait for God to do something spectacular or drop something from the skies before you praise God, you’ll wait till eternity.

If you’re not joyful you’ll be fretful. Those who struggle more and had little results are those who have not added praise to their efforts. Most of my qualitative time before God are for praise. David appeared before God many times per day, most of which are for praise. This was the secret behind his victory over battles.

David faced the most incessant oppositions, wars and attacks during his reigns and overcame them all. David was a man after God’s heart and God must have showed him how to reach his heart.

The aces are in your hands, embrace the truth and live the overcomer’s life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pathway to supernatural enthronement


The pathway to supernatural enthronement

There is no building that can stand on a shaky foundation. A Christian that wouldn’t be sure of the foundation of his faith today would soon crumble on his feet.

There is no tree that can survive without its root. Likewise, there is no human that can survive without the supernatural. The supernatural is the backbone of life. Every natural happenings has its supernatural antecedent.

The surest platform to the supernatural is the service platform. If Jesus Christ – who wasn’t given the Holy Spirit by measure – couldn’t do anything outside the obedience to his father’s instructions. Then, it will be foolishness for anyone to attempt to do it on his own.

“I can of my own do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.” Jn.5:30

The service platform is the platform where the supernatural grace flows.

The platform of stewardship is the surest pathway to divine enthronement.

David was a servant before he was enthroned. He kept his father’s flocks. Joseph served even when he was in the prison. Solomon sacrificed the largest burnt offerings in history. He requested for a thing that would benefit the people. To crown it all, Jesus was obedient to the death of the cross before his enthronement.

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.” Phil.2:8-9

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience today. You can’t be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow.

It’s not  just the word that enters us that works. It is the word that we enter that works. It is our entering or diving into the the word of God that produces results.

obedience

“But be ye the doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves. 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: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, being not a forgetful hearer, but the doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deeds.” JMS.1:22-25.

This thing works!

Be responsible. Until you take responsibility, you’ll die a liability.

Obedience is the gateway to supernatural enthronement.

“And it shall come pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.” Deu.28:1-3.

Don’t receive this word in your head or room. There is no amount of watering that can make the one in your head or room to produce fruit. It is the word in your heart that produces good fruit because the your heart is the good ground.

The entrance of the word emits light and when light comes in, darkness has no choice than to bow out.

“The entrance of the word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”Psm.119:130

Anything else can fail, but obedience of scriptural instructions can’t fail.

” This book of law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: For then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Jos.1:8

Live ready today! It might be too late to get ready tomorrow!!

 

 

 

 

 

Releasing the values of prayer and fasting


Profitable approach to fasting and prayer

We must all know that every believer is a temple of God.

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” 1.Cor.3:9

In the same vein, the temple of Christ is ordained as a house of prayer. That is, you are a prayer house.

“And he said unto them, my house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Mat.21:13.

Prayer and fasting are neither an advice nor an admonition. Prayer and fasting are God’s commandments.

But thou,  when thou prayest.” Mat.6:6 “But thou, when thou fastest.” Mat.6:17. ‘When’ thou prayest and fastest not ‘if’. These are commandments. Again, Pray without ceasing.” 1.Thes.5:17 All men ought to pray and not to faint.” Lk.18:1. All men, not all pastors.

Everyone is responsible for the predicament of his/her life. God doesn’t owe you anything, you owe God obedience. If you can eat and talk that means you can pray.

Moreover, our God is a commander. And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the lord will set thee high above all nations of the earth.” Deu.28:1.

However, there is no room for negotiations in our covenant walk with God. All you need to do is  just to obey. Obedience to the commandments of God is the gateway to the manifestations of all the blessings. This is not fantasy neither drama. This is unrefined (raw) mystery.

it works!

The mystery works!

Christianity is not a religion neither a philosophy. It does not belong to any organization or religious body. It is the release of the God’s life in human vessels. It is the manifestation of God’s power in his people’s life. That is why Christianity is different from other religions.

Every Christian has a greatness potential to do beyond what Jesus, Jonas, Solomon and John the Baptist did. But this can only be possible by prayer and fasting.

Verily, verily, I said unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; greater works than these shall he do.” Jn.14:21

“And he said unto them this kind come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Mark.9:29

Greater than Jonas, is here.” Mat.12:41

Greater than Solomon is here.” Mat.12:42.

Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” Mat.11:11.

It is now time you move out of the box. Everybody is moving, you too have to move with the cloud. Give up the impossibility syndrome.

Hear this: It is not the fast that God answers, it is the prayer offers in the fast. Prayer is what gives value to fasting while fasting is meant to facilitate answered prayers (Mk.9:29). God has not commanded us in order to grieve us, but He has commanded us in order to bless us. Serving God is not a punishment, it is a ‘polishment’

“But, this is the will of God that we keep is commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” 1.Jn.5:3

God is not looking for who to use, He is looking for who to bless. God is not a taskmaster, He is a paymaster (Deu.28:1-3, JMS.1:25, Jos.1:8, Ex.23:25, Job.36:11, Mat.6:33).

To take God for granted is to be grounded in life. Those who will fail to take responsibility will die as a liability. Live ready! It might be too late to get ready.

 

 

 

 

 

Thinking – the mind based activity


20180712_185323_0001

This thing (devil) just go about looking for who is available, who is ready for negativities.

Never again, must it cross my mind that the negative will happen.

Thinking is one of the mind based activities.

Before God, your thoughts and prayers weigh equally.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Eph.3:20.

God answers thought as much has he answers prayer. That woman with the issue of blood didn’t had to pray before she got her healing.

“For she said within herself, if I may touch his garment, I shall be whole.” Mat.9:21.

The destiny of man was fractured due to the devil’s attack on mind of the woman. The woman involved her husband by giving him the fruit to eat, Adam too became a victim of deception.

The devil is still at the business of upturning destines through ceaseless attacks on the mind.

God’s word can only gained entrance into you through your mind. So also, your  mind is the devil’s target.

Get this straight: You can’t see dead tomorrow and wake up to see a life full of prosperity and abundance.  You can’t see failure tomorrow and wake up to see success. Everyone gets what they think. This is divine principle. God can’t break this principle because of you.

If God think and think positively, then you and I have no choice but to think positively the way God think.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not evil to give you an expected end.” Jer.29:11

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3.Jn.1:2.

Creative positive thoughts are lifting while destructive negative thoughts are inhibitive.

Repent all negative thoughts and cultural perspectives. I wish you realize how powerful your imaginative faculty is, your mind can either make you or break you. In the spirit realm any thought you allow to hold grip on you is regarded accomplished. Very soon it will manifest into the reality.

This is not psychology, it is drawing life from the fountain of truth – the word of God.

Ever since the devil fell, man thoughts has been only evil continually.

“And God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his earth was only evil continually.” Gen.6:5

This is why you must deprogram yourself from this negative pattern of thinking by casting down all mind debris and cultural orientations.

 

 

 

 

Meditation


20180712_085531_0001

“O how love i thy law! It is my meditation all the day.” PSM.119:97

Meditation is letting your mind to hover upon the deep at creation (Gen1:2). It is pondering over the word of God. Before the miraculous can be at your command, meditation is of necessity. You must move from study to meditation.

While you get information by feeding at letter in the  scripture or hearing the word of God, you get the substance behind the word of God through meditation. The substance behind the word is God. God the supernatural.

The entrance of the words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” Psalm.119:130

It’s the incoming or entrance of God’s word rooted in your heart by meditation that emits the light and dispels the darkness. When light sparks off, darkness flee on its heel. Fear has not choice than to be kept to its toe. The devil is on the run.

Meditate on God’s word today and you’ll never be far from the supernatural (God) in every realm of life.
