However, blogging has taught me several lessons. I have committed many blunders and corrected my mistakes. Now my writings have improved to a new level.

Ques – What would you like to do that you can’t do now?

Ways to manifest your healing


A picture illustrating a crippled man that has gotten his healing

 

Sickness can be spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental.
There are instances of healing that happen immediately at the very first moment of prayer, anointing and there are instances of healing that happen only after long period of waiting and many experiences of prayer.

There is God-ward side and man-ward side to every battle and blessings, so while waiting on Jehovah Rapha, the God our healer for full manifestation of healing.

SACRIFICE OF PRAISE AND JOY

Thanksgiving is a vital key to experiencing the miraculous, we must not reserve for when miracle comes to full fruition.

It is in the Holy atmosphere of praise and worship that healing and miracle begin to manifest.

The sacrifice of Joy is the most difficult to offer when afflicted or troubled within and out.

Yet Nehemiah 8:10 says the Joy of the Lord is our strength.

Strength is emotional toughness and resistance, it is defensive ability.

Dancing, singing melodies, reciting psalms, smiling, laughing rejoicing in what the Lord says about us.

 

A picture of someone who have got his healing

BE REALISTIC IN EXPECTATIONS

we need to overcome the realms of our 5 senses and human reasoning.

Our words have power to create or destroy.

Proverb 18vs 21 says there are power of life and death in the tongue

“I can’t handle this anymore, then the situation can be out of control”

“it is hurting more, as difficult as it may sound, our words control our lives

Mark 10vs 50 reveals the blind Bartimaeus threw aside his garment and rose and came to Jesus. The garment to this blind man was his valuable asset, being his status identification, his means of collecting alms, may be his source of shelter and warmth.

To us it can be no longer rely on whatever we had as any other hope of survival.

Casting away all doubt, no thinking otherwise.

Casting away all fear and connection of discouragement.

prayer is successful only when it is based on God’s word.”The supernatural therapy to supernatural healing is the word of God”

A graphics of The days of miracle are not gone

UNDERSTAND AND KEEP CONFESSING THE WORD OF GOD

Possess the promises of healing in Christ Jesus Ipeter2:24, Isaiah 53:4.

To keep confessing the word of God help curse the root cause of the problems and it releases Jesus into the situations.

Sometimes, healing seems to be delayed. In Exodus 5:22-23, Moses spoke the word of God(let my people go and serve me) to Pharaoh but he refused.
God gave Moses the strength to continue confronting Pharaoh with the word of God till his final destruction.
2Chronicle 7:14 says, if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray  and seek my face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.

There is need to examine life from any area of sin that has not being dealt with, repent, make restitutions if need be. It causes to falter in confidence before God and making request known, it also gives Satan ground to condemn and judge.

CHOOSE TO PERSEVERE

(waiting, hoping and trusting God)

God also uses our circumstances to refine and build our characters
Delay in manifestation sometimes means to grow us in faith and patience making us spiritually fit.

I Have Been Redeemed to Live a Sickness Free Life

I am not permitted to sick. Sicknesses and diseases are illegal. They are in the list of darkness. Serving God guarantees my total freedom from every item in the list of darkness. He took my infirmities, He is not coming to take it. He already took. I can never be sicked.


By redemption, we have been redeemed to enjoy health and vitality. Serving God guarantees our total freedom from sicknesses and diseases. All sicknesses and diseases come from the devil. An example was Job. Job.1:1-21. There is no affliction that is from God. Every believer must be very sensitive of this.

He took my infirmities and bare my sicknesses.

He took my pains and bares my sickness on the cross. I can never be sicked! That it might be fulfilled of which was spoken by Esias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities and bares our sicknesses.” Mat.8:17.

All I need is the word ‘took‘. He already took, He is not coming to take. As long as I am still obeying scriptural commandments, I can never be sicked!

This is the kind of mentality that every believer should carry. God has be healing people long before your doctor went to elementary school. There is medicinal value in God’s word.

Sicknesses and diseases are illegal. They can’t be found in Jesus, they are not permitted in your body. Obedience has made your character the same as Jesus. You share the same gene with Jesus. So, if Jesus can’t be sicked, you can’t be sicked as well. What you can’t despise, you can’t dominate. What you say in connection with what you believe, has a long way to determine what you become.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Pro.18:21

Moreover, you can’t share the same gene with the healer, and not be a healer yourself. You can’t have the healing power and be the victim sickness. Greater than the work that Jesus did is expected of you. You are meant to be healing people than the way Jesus healed people through the power of God working in you. I must be crazy if God works through me to heal people and be sicked.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these; shall he do because I go unto my father.” Jn.14:22.

Behold, I give you the power to tread of serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Lk.10:19.

Ignorance of this, will make any believer to become a cheap prey to the wicked one. We have been redeemed to live in a hurt free zone.

“Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.” PS.23:4.

There is no natural man who will pass through the territory of the wicked one and go unhurt. It is God protection that has exempted us from this horror.

Noiseless breakthrough

Darkness is helpless with light

You don’t hear the sound of a light when it dominates darkness. Our breakthroughs in Christ are noiseless breakthroughs. We are  light in the world of darkness. We break new grounds noiselessly. Darkness is hopeless with light. It doesn’t struggle with it Which means every item in the list of darkness is helpless with us.

Any genuine believer who is engaging in what the word says has the capacity to confuse the enemy of how his success came to be. When you enter the word, people will no longer be able to explain your efforts but  yet they will never be able to deny your effects.

“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is everyone that is born of the spirit.” Jn.3:8.

We are not achievers, we are privilege receivers. We make our marks in life by grace and It doesn’t take time for grace to turn into disgrace. Anyone who doesn’t want his grace to turn into disgrace, should remain committed by doing what the word says.

Our subscriptions into the idea of obeying scriptural instructions is the surest gateway to our liberty from all sicknesses and diseases.

“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” Ex.23:25.

I have been redeemed to live a sickness free life.

 

 

 

 

 

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s Factors


Life is meaningless outside God’s factors. Life is difficult living outside biblical instructions. There is simplicity in Christ which makes life easier.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through subtilty, so your mind should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2.Cor.11:3.

Life doesn't makes sense outside God's factors

The biblical mysteries are real. They are secrets hiding in the simplicity of the scripture. The secrets are not fabricated, they are raw scriptural truths.

God cannot entrust these secrets to you below the level your fear for His commandments.

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.” Ps.25:14.

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s factors. Until you depend absolutely on God by obeying His commandments with all you’ve got: your strength, time, money, materials, brain and any other resources; breakthroughs are farfetched.

“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” Mark.12:30.

Life is complex, it is the simplicity in Christ that can resolved life complexity.

Life is a battle field, we are fighting with the devil in order to take possession of our inheritances in Christ.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might hath life, and they might have more abundantly.” Jn.10:10.

Only God’s help is secured. A man can promise to employ you today and change his word tomorrow. Helps from men are failure prone. The devil will make you worse or even end you up into destruction. It is only God who doesn’t speaks empty word, He has integrity.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither a son of man that he should repent: hath he said, shall he not do it? Hath he spoken shalt he not make it good.” Num.23:19

Ceased from all fruitless labour and let God help you. Heaven does not help those who help themselves, heaven leaves those who help themselves alone.

Life is ordinary struggle outside God's factors.

No matter where you are around the corner of the world – whether you are brown, white, yellow or black – you need Jesus to help. Everybody needs Jesus.

Life is not a chance but a choice, the ball is in your court, it all depends on how you play it. Buy into the idea of putting God’s word to work, and you will see improvements in all areas of your life.

“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 deeds.” James.1:25.

It works like fire! Serving God this way works like fire! There were people who have served God this way, enjoyed life and go to heaven.

Serving God is not just an escape to heaven. Going to heaven is part of it but not all of it. Serving God guarantees us to enjoy life while we are here and at the same time go to heaven.

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children for the kingdom sakes who shall not receive manifold more in this present time and in the world to come everlasting.” Lk.18:29-30.

 

 

Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

Partnership is the gateway to all round settlements. Wrong mentality about partnership will reduce engagement. Understand this: we are not working for God; we are working with God. God does not use people; He blesses people. He is not a taskmaster; He is a paymaster.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Those who are partnering with God are not far from all round settlement in all areas of life.”

In partnership, every shareholder is entitled to a dividend. So also you can’t partner with God and miss out His dividend.

Isaiah 45:19 KJV
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

We are not working for God we are working with God

 How can I partner with God?

Go for His mandates – The 2 mandates of God for every Christian are prayer and soul winning (lk.18:1, Jn.15:16, Jer.1:5). “All men,” not all pastors, ought to pray and not to faint. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. Prayer is a commandment. “Pray without ceasing.”(1Thes.5:17). Fainting in prayer equals failing in life. Prayer does not only change things; prayer changes people.

Luke 9:29 KJV
“And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.”

Whatever you pray for others answers back to you. It is human intercession that provokes the release of divine intervention. Standing in the gap for others (“the lost” and nations) is the surest pathway to a life of  fulfillment.

 Matthew 6:9-10, 33 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Hannah at 84 years old, prayed kingdom advancement prayer (lk.2:37). Daniel prayed kingdom advancement prayer to a point that the king had no choice than to call him Belteshazzar ( a god’s name).

Daniel 4:18 KJV
“This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.”

Fear GodWe make our marks in life by fearing God. How can I fear God? By obeying scriptural injunctions (Jn.14:21)

Our journey to greatness in life begins with the fear of God. We live in a kingdom of choices and not chances. The ball is in our courts. Daniel made a choice to be different (Dan.1:8) you too choose to be different.

Daniel 1:8 KJV
“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
It’s common saying that “If you can’t beat them join them” this statement is a satanic statement. You can’t beat them by joining them, or else you will remain under them. Choose to be different.

Joseph flee fornication when he knew that his destiny will be tied down.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it. It pays to live right. Its never too late to turn. Live ready it might be too late to get ready.

Our journey to greatness begins with Godliness

Love God: The hotter your love for Christ the hotter you become in life. Carry a heart for Christ. Those who have the injunctions of God and obey them are the ones who love God.

John 14:21 KJV
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

What is love? Love is simply the word that you receive, believe and obey.

Passion is the key word here. Love built this blog. Love provokes the release of supernatural manifestations in all spheres of life.

Love is making the kingdom of God your number 1 interest in life.

Get this straight: If the things of God does not move you, don’t expect the move of God to your direction. God is ever committed to the welfares of those who are committed to His interests.

Until you run after the kingdom agenda, supernatural additions is out of view.

 1 Kings 17:13 KJV
“And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.”

 Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Your years of toiling is over. Our God is a God of additions. Serving God will not reduce you, serving God will increase you. Our God is a God of multiplication.

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“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.”

Things that others are running g after will be running after you when you plug into the frequency of love by hunting after souls both on the prayer alter and by reaching out to the lost through envagelism.

 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

The interpretation of this scripture is that some people are praying for the lost to be saved while others are on the field compelling them into the kingdom. Both category of labourers have their rewards. You can do both as many believers are doing today.

I decrees – your settlement in every aspect of your life has finally come. God will settle you spiritually, physically, financially, and academically; in your health, career, job, business and marriage in the name of Jesus. No body here will remain unsettled in the name of Jesus.

Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

What is partnership?

Partnership is a cooperative relationship between people or group who agree to share responsibility for achieving some specific goals.

From this definition, some key words are to be noted.

Co operation which is based or agreement. Amos3:3

Responsibility which is based on maturity.
Before an agreement can be reached between 2 people, there must be trust and love in place and the responsibility part leaves you with doing what you have to do to get you desires result.

This means that every one has their roles to play to achieve a goal.

God has His role to play as much as we have ours, incomplete fulfilment on our own side places our settlement on a shaky ground. Remember that God can’t do our part and vice versa.

Settlement on the other hand is having everything regards our affairs attended to at all times..
Because God is not a user of man but a blessed of those who differently seek him.
Once you are in partner with a person, you always put everything in place to make your communication active.

How does partnership settles us?

  • Partnership with God places us under His care and guidance (PS 23:3).
  • It makes you a carrier of grace. Remember you are in accordance to Him.
  •  It makes you seek His kingdom (Matt 6:33).
  • It makes you serve under Him (Ex 23:25).

It is important to know that our love has to be in place before partnership can stand with God.
All partnership is based on love. once we love God we are sure to obey Him at all times and if you obey Him,there’s no way He will leave us unattended to at any time.

How to partnership with God


Partnership with God

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

By definition, a partner is a person who takes part in an undertaking with another or other, especially in a business or firm with shared risk and profit.

But tonight we’re talking about partnership with our lord business.

God original plan for mankind is that after this earth,mankind should have everlasting life with him. But at the garden of eden man lost this opportunity and began to suffer.

But in him infinity mercy, after sending a lot of prophets and the word is still corrupt. He sent his only begotten son,so that his original plan can be fulfilled.

Jesus worked when He was on earth and when He was going He gave us a commandment to go into and preach about the kingdom of God.

Jesus Christ said harvests are many but labourers are few. He needed so many labourers so that we can harvest plenty souls into the kingdom of God.

John 14-21, says he who has my commandments and keep them, it is who loves me. And who love me will be loved by my father and I will love and manifest myself to him.

God has work to be done on earth and He is looking for who to partner with him to get the work done.

If we love Him we will keep His commandments and obey His commandments.

Your love for souls of men and you loving what He love prove that you love Him.

You may be asking how can I be partner with God.

By Evangelize -go into the word and preach the gospel of our lord Jesus. Open your mouth talk to people about Christ.

By helping the work of God with your substance: be it your Brain, time, money etc.

Dream up some awesome ideas that can propagate the kingdom of God and putting them into action without minding the sweating of your efforts.

Another question you may want to ask again is what will I gain in partner with God?

John 14-21b say I will manifest myself to him. To who? To those that love him and doing His will.

These manifestations of God are the benefits you enjoy for partnering with him.

What are the benefit we derive for partnering with him.

we become conqueror – trouble will tremble at our presence because God presence is with us because He love us.

supernatural favour – when we have pleasure in God business, He will be with us and release divine favour unto us. God is with Joseph and He enjoyed a great flow of favour.

flow of sign and wonder – as you work with God He backs you up with sign and wonder. Paul as example mark16:20

Supernatural breakthroughs – anyone who love God is empower to be a pathfinder and a carrier of supernatural breakthrough. Permanent partnership with God make you a star forever and ever (Daniel 12-3)because His presence with you give you confidence and that lead you to breakthrough.

In conclusion, God is searching for a man and woman who will work with him on earth so that plenty souls will be harvested into His kingdom.

Are you ready to be a partner with God? Determine today and God will bless you.

Sorry for taking much of your time.
