I’m a Christian or am I?


 

Christianity is not a religion

The followers of Jesus were first called “Christian” in Antioch

Acts 11:26 KJV
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

literally means, “belonging to the party of Christ” or a “follower of christ”

Jesus is our perfect examples. A genuine christian shares the same gene and character with Jesus. Any character (fornication, adultery, stealing, corruption, etc) that can’t be found In Jesus is not permitted in you.

Also, Christianity is not a religion neither a philosophy; it does not belongs to any organization. It’s the release of the life of God into human vessels. It’s the manifestation of God’s power in man.

What the 3 proofs of a genuine believer

(1). The proof of love
(2). The proof of results
(3). The proof of faith

The proof of love – There is nothing mystical about love. Simply put love as the combination of the word that we received, believe and obey.

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.

Obedience is the cardinal mark of love. The devil can preach. It’s not about preaching it; it’s about doing it. Your being a walking bible who can reel off 100 memory verses per second isn’t a proof that the word of God has gained entrance into you.

Don’t receive God’s word in your head; receive it into your heart because your heart is the good ground (There is no amount of watering that would allow the word in your head or under your pillow to produce fruits).

 How can I love God?

Carry a heart for Christ – How can you say that you love someone if you don’t know His interest. God’s heartbeat is the life of the unsaved/lost. Until you allow this to become your priority on earth don’t expect to become a true believer.

John 15:16 KJV
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

There is nothing theoretical about serving God. Serving God in truth and in deed requires practical. Until you demonstrate the commandments of the scripture results are farfetched.

James 1:22-25 KJV
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.

(2). The force of results – Christianity with nothing to show is a sign of disobedience and God is ever ready to revenge all disobedience.

2 Corinthians 10:5-6 KJV
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; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Sickness, poverty, sweat, stagnation, frustration, darkness and mountains are all in the list of disobedience.

This is the reason many – though born again christian – are still groveling in poverty. They experience the same buffetings and intimidations that the world experience from the wicked one.

Listen to this: irrespective of your age, title, position and the numbers of years that you have spent in church if you don’t start taking responsibilities you will die as liabilities and God won’t come for your rescue.

Collect the blessings from your ‘parents’ by being responsible!

The force of faith – faith is what distinguishes between a winning and losing Christian.

If you love God you will trust Him. When God saw this dogged determination in these three Hebrew guys His heartbeat was like “I must save my children” Nothing works without faith.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Simply put faith as seeing the invincible and believing the impossible.

Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Move with the cloud, everybody is moving. Give up the impossibility syndrome.

Matthew 19:26 KJV
But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Greater than Jonas is here. Greater than John the Baptist is here.
John 14:12 KJV
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.

An end to shame


God is wiping away the shame and reproaches of His people. Mockers are now joining us to serve God. The latter rain is now falling. Our tears is being wiped. Our fear is casted out. No more worries, fretfulness and despondency.

Christians are now owning estates, buying private jets. Joel’s prophecies is being fulfilled – “Be glad ye children of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God: for He has given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you, the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain In the first month.” Joel.2:23.

envious destiny_1.PNG

Listen to this: our destiny is an enviable destiny (we are not meant to be pitied); “For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the philistines envied him.” Gen.26:14.

In God’s plan, our destiny is a golden destiny; a glorious destiny. “For whom He did foreknow, he also predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.“Rom.8:29-30.

We belong to a royal family where everything has been prepared (1Cor.2:9). All things are available in this kingdom. We are serving in a working kingdom. Things work here. “All things work together for good to them that love God” Rom.8:28.

As long as you remain in love continually, by perpetually obeying scriptural commandment, you will be having it just the way you want it in life.

You know one thing about the word of God, it can never be broken (even God himself can’t break the scripture); we are serving a covenant keeping God, a faithful God. Plugged into this covenant, and be free from the bound of fear of sickness, disease, death, frustration, failure. etc.

Many – though born-again Christian – but are still groveling in poverty today due to ignorance. The word of the lord says if you can key into stewardship, you will spend your days in pleasures and your years in prosperity (Job.36:11).

Understanding the power of faith


A graphic of understanding the power of faith

What is faith?

Let first define faith by stating what faith is not:

  • Faith is not waiting.
  • Faith is not a believe system.

Faith is putting God’s word to work.

“But be ye 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, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Jms.1:22-25

“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works….But with thou know, O vain a man, that faith without works is dead.” Jms.2:17-18/20

Faith is an action. It means to take scriptural calculated step in all spheres of life’s affairs

“And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment. For she said within herself, if I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Mat.9:20-21

A graphic re

Why do I need faith?

  • You need faith because faith is our authentic life wire that connect us the our authentic power source (God). men live by faith.

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Rom.1:17.

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.”  Hab.2:4

  • These scriptures are not coincidental. Faith is the fuel that keeps the aircraft of our life flying. With faith, you are on the go, there is no stumbling block on the way. All mountains are made plains.
  • You need faith because faith is our purchasing power in the miraculous market.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Heb.11:6.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavereth; for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double-minded is unstable in all his ways.” Jms.1:5-8.

  • You need faith because faith confers rest in a seemingly impossible situation. Seeing into the spiritual realm always bring about. You will so settled about issues that you can’t be daunted by the empty threat of the devil.

This was why Jesus could afford to sleep in the midst of storm even while His disciples were wearing out themselves frantically in a bid to save their lives. But when they remembered to invite Him into the issue, He calmed the storm. Until you remember to invite Jesus into your issues don’t expect the storm over your life to be calmed.

“And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him. Master, carest thou not that we perish: and he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark.4:38

Understanding the power of faith.

A time came when the Syrian was waging war against Isreal, whenever they tried to made war plane the secret got leaked into Elisha – the Prophet of God – through spiritual intervention.

The Syrian army were sent to arrest the prophet, Gehasi – the prophet’s servant was almost paralyzed with fear because he couldn’t see into the realm of the spirit. But, when the Prophet prayed for his eyes to be popped open.

Gehazi too could see the host of angels of God that encamped them. They were both at rest. And our God who is a consuming fire responded.

Fear and anxiety are the cardinal evidence of doubt. Doubt is the opposite of faith. Anytime you find yourself fidgeting, it’s a sign of lack of faith. You can’t be faithful and be doubtful.

How do I build my faith?

  • Take a daily dose of God’s word.

“So the faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom.1:17

  • Engage in love with Christ. Obedience is the hallmark of our love. Simply put love in this way,  as a combination of what we receives, believes and obey.

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

“This is the love of God, that we should obey His commandments and His commmandments are not grevious.”

  • Renew your mind – You are what you think. In the realm of the spirit, any thought that you allow to hold grip upon you is regarded accomplished. God thinks and He thinks positive, if you are truly sons and daughters of God, then think positively.

“As he thinketh in his heart so he is.” Prov.23:7

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

You can't see

  • Make bold declaration – It requires boldness to move God to confirms His word. Speak inline with what you believe. In the spirit realm, David already chopped off Goliath’s head with his mouth before the actual killing took place. Make positive sounds, decrees according to the way you want it in life. Watch out for what you release into the atmosphere. Remember, The angels are your servant and they will make sure that execute whatsoever you say.

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be establish unto you” Job22:28

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

“For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Lk.21:15

Your mouth is a destiny molder.

  • Pray in the Holy Ghost – The subject Holy Ghost is seldom discussed but is one of the most crucial topics. Build up your faith by engaging the Holy Ghost in your prayer life. Connect to the spirit world by speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience, excellence, revelation, etc.

”But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.”  Jude.1:20. Don’t get it twisted, you need the help of the Holy Spirit more than anything else.

The scope of this is topic is limited to discussed fully who the Holy Ghost is. I will drop a link where you can learn more about the Holy Ghost and watch out for my subsequent posts – i will be discussing in details who is the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Spirit One Spirit Diverse In Its Operations.

 

 

 

 

 

Revealing the Secret of Biblical Instruction (Part 2)


Yesterday I shared with us the first segment of “Revealing the Secret of Biblical Instruction.” Let me quickly refresh our memory on what we treated yesterday. Biblical Instruction is the gateway to overflowing blessings. Biblical Instruction is the key to outpouring rewards. Deu.281-3, Jos.1:8, James.1:25, Ex.23:25, Job.36:11.

Releasing the secret of the biblical instrution

What are Biblical Instructions? a). The prayer instruction, b). The fasting Instruction, c). The Praise Instruction, d). The Soul winning Instruction, e). The giving instruction. If you want the full details on what we treated yesterday, you can visit our previous post.

Today, we are focusing on a).  the reason why I must follow the bible Instruction and b). How can someone follows the bible Instruction.

The first part will be discussed in this Segment while the other part will be discussed in the next segment.

Why Must I Follow the Bible Instruction?

Releasing the secret of biblical instruction

a). You must follow the bible Instruction in order to cease from life’s toiling and struggles

Life is ordinary toiling and struggle outside the bible instruction. Peter toiled all the night and caught nothing, but by obedience to the Instruction he had a net breaking harvest (Lk.5:5-6). “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33.

Ceased from your fruitless labour by forgetting about yourself and focusing on doing what the word says. Outside the bible instruction, frustration becomes the order of the day, confusion appears on the scene. You can’t afford to be that careless by letting that to happen to you. Stop living by law of accident. Until you subscribe into the bible Instruction, your life will be based on guesses and assumptions.

b). You Must Follow the Bible Instruction In Order to Live a Sickness and Disease Free Life:

Instruction got you covered. Following the bible Instruction guarantees your total freedom from sickness and disease. “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. All negative circumstances are not our portions. That is why you must despise them (don’t ever take nonsense) “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinance that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.” Col.2:14. Every negative doctor’s verdicts must be rejected. As an engaging believer you must carry the conscious that Jesus already took your infirmities and bare your place in sickness. So, you are not permitted to be sicked ( despise sickness). “Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.” Mat.8:17.

c) You must follow the bible Instruction in order to command the flow of financial prosperity :

Financial prosperity answers  to our obedience to the commandment of giving. Giving is a platform of service. Following the bible Instruction guarantees your absolute freedom from poverty, lack and want, begging and borrowing, shame and reproach. (Psm.34:10,  Deu.28:1-3, Deu.8:18, Haggai.2:8) “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure.” Job.36:11.

d).  You must follow the bible Instruction in order to enjoy fruitfulness in all aspects of your life:

Fruitfulness is not limited to the fruit of the womb. A person can be financially barren. A person can be academically barren. Following the bible Instruction exempts you from all forms of barrenness including the fruit of the womb ” There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land.” Ex.23:25-26. Even your cattle which connotes business is not permitted to be barren. “Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.” Deu.7:14.

e). You must follow the bible Instruction in order to enjoy longevity:

Long life is guaranteed by following the bible Instruction. You are not permitted to die young (The car that will kill you will never be made). Still in Ex. 23, in vs 26 “There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number if thy days I will fulfil.” 

Secret of biblical Instruction part two

  • I have published the two segments of the topic, the last segment will be published  later on. If the post has blessed you, why can’t you do me a little favour by sharing it with your friends and families. Thanks for the sharing. May God bless you.

My Case is Different


Good morning to everyone in this royal and  glorious family. Last night, I told you that 10 billions can’t kill me, I actually meant what I said. Today, I’ll be sharing with us“My Case is Different”

My case is different

Here is our slogan: My case is different because I’m the redeemed of the lord, and as a covenant child what afflicts others is not permitted to afflicts me. Congratulations! (Note: this slogan is credited to Living faith Church a.k.a Winners Chapel).

What do I mean by my case is different?

If I say my case is different, what I actually mean is that there is this special mark of exemption on every genuine child of God. What molest others is not permitted to molest us.

We are not allowed to suffer what the world suffers. Others can be sicked, we are not permitted to be sicked. Others can be poor, we are not allowed to be poor. Others can fail, we are not permitted to fail. The world can breakdown, ours is breakthrough. Others can be struggling, we’re not permitted to struggle. What others are running after will be running after us after the order of Mat.6:33. While others are running helter skelter,  will always be at peace.

Register this into your minds, feed and print with it, we are covenant sons and daughters of God. He made the covenant with the Israelites, by redemption, we are qualified to stay under the covenant and claim the promises.

The covenant will not only unleashed blessings for us, but it will also provide the covering for the protecting the blessings. This explains the reason why Job was blessed and got a seal of protection over his blessings. The one who fear God and eschewed evil, was the greatest in the land, that is what I’m talking about.

My case is different

“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that fear God and eschewed evil.” Job.1:1

As a result of his subscription to scriptural commandments,

“His substance was also was seven thousands sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that the man was the greatest of all the men in the east.” Job.1:3

The devil accusations, helpless devil.

“Hast not thou made an edge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hand, and his substance increased in the land.” Job.1:10.

The point I’m making here is that a). Job plugged himself into the covenant of blessings by obeying God, He fears God and hates evil. b). As a result of his subscription to the covenant by doing what the word says, he became the greatest man in the land, accumulated the largest wealth in his generation. c). By covenant, Job was not only blessed but also God provided the covering of protection over all that he had.

The covenant has the capacity to exempts us from the ongoing economic holocaust of our time as we subscribe into the covenant of giving and receiving. Mal.3:17-18, Mal.4:1-2

 

 

 

 

Mockers Are Cut Down


Anything mocking your glorious destiny in Christ, shall be cut down today. All the people that mocked you today because you are serving God, they will join you to serve God tomorrow. All those who looked down on you and have said who are you? They will all come back to ask, how are you? When they ask you, how far? You tell them that you are now very far from defeat and stagnation. ‘Shebi’ they mocked ‘PaPa’. ‘Papa’ suit was faded when He was preaching financial prosperity and they mocked him because of that. Hmm! Thank God!  Today, he is now the richest pastor on earth. Those who mocked him yesterday, are now joining his ministry today. “And he went up from thence unto Bethel.: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him. Go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children. 2.Kings.2:23-25. Hence, anybody or anything mocking your glorious destiny, will receive instantaneous divine judgment.

Serving God does not leave you with much options, it is either serve God or the devil. The is no middle or God-devil. ” No man can serve two masters for either he will hate the one, and love the other: or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Mat.6:24. You better join us serving God today. Live ready today because it might be too late to get ready. There are no varsity accomplishments or success outside God’s factors. No God! no success!

5 Reasons You Must Execute Vengeance


  1. It is the responsibility of every child of God to execute vengeance. “I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles.” Is. 42:6
  2. Vengeance is the doctrine of the HolyGhost. “As they ministered to the lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have have called them.” Acts.13:2.
  3. You cannot win a war begging, you can only win a battle by putting up a fight. “Fight the good fight of faith.” 1Tim.6:12
  4. Execution of vengeance is the cheapest way to put an end to the wickedness to the wicked. “ O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just : for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defense is of God, which saveth the heart the upright in heart. God judgeth he righteous, God is angry with the wicked everyday.” PS.7:9-13
  5. The wicked will never give up without vengeance of God. “And I say unto thee, let my son go, that he may serve me : and if thou refuse to let him go, behold I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.” Ex.4:23. “And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt: for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Isreal; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said” Ex.12:30-33.

By redemption, you are untouchable after the order of Abraham. By redemption also, you are uncurseable. “There is no enchantment against Jacob neither any divination against Israel.” Num.23:23. If you know somebody is tormenting your son and you were asked when do you want him free. Off  course, your answer will be now. You are now free from every torment of the wicked.
