Violent Faith


From the days of the Patriarchy to the present, all those who have reigned in life have been men and women of violent faith. Faith that tears the roof off will always get God’s attention (See Luke.5:17-26).

Faith is not a gentle thing; rather, it’s a violent thing. To get God’s attention, some form of violence is required. In Luke.5, some men were bringing a paralytic man to Jesus, convinced that if they got him to Jesus, he would be healed. However, there was such a large crowd at the entrance that they were unable to enter where Jesus was. To get to Jesus, they ripped the roof off the building (Violence).

“And the kingdom of God has suffered violence from the days of John the Baptist until now, and the violent have taken it by force (paraphrased).” –Mathew. 11:12

You’re far too gentle for the victory you seek. Jesus is the lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be a lion’s brother unless you actually are one. Consider a lion: he is always calm. A lion’s eyes are always red, indicating violence. There are no fearful lions, and even his posture frightens the devil. You can’t have a lion share unless you first have a lionheart.


You don’t deserve what you don’t desire.
Faith is not a passive state; it is an action – a doing or a moving force. It is acting in accordance with your beliefs. The woman with the blood issue did not pray, but instead reasoned within herself that “if she touches Jesus’ garment, she will be made whole.” Her blood was stanched as she moved to touch the garment right away. Faith is not a platitude; it is a labour of love. Without work, faith dies (James.2:20). Obedience comes from faith. In other words, unwavering adherence to scriptural instructions.

There are no professors at Pilot’s School, but there are instructors. People do not fly based on their knowledge, but rather on their ability to follow instructions. Connect to the frequency of scriptural instructions to get onboard for a flight. It’s impossible to be dedicated and not be decorated. Your level of obedience today determines your future. You’ll be counted among the world’s highfliers if you follow God’s commandments as a way of life.


The devil is not a gentleman; he will always oppose the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. As a result, God’s word will appear to be a forgery. What happens in life? We’re in a battle with the devil to reclaim our birthright. By being responsible, you can obtain your birthright from your parent (God). Life is a battleground. And the battle is primarily a mental one. The target of the attack is your mind. If you fail there, you will fail in reality. Your mind has the power to either make or break you (See, Ephesians 6:12; John 10:10).

Friend, embrace the truth and shake the dust off your feet. Follow, like, comment, and share. Blessings and love.

Understanding How To Secure Victory In A Spiritual WarFare


All natural happenings have their supernatural antecedents. God is the supernatural. The supernatural is the control room of life. It’s the backbone of life. The natural reigns until the supernatural prevails.

understanding how to secure victory in spiritual warfare

Once upon a time, the devil and his cohorts planned a revolt against God. As a result, the wicked and his host of demons were thrown out of heaven. Since the the fell of the falling one, the wicked has embarked on a mission to upturn all that God created, himself didn’t create anything. Till date, the devil is still at the business of upturning destines.

When the devil emerged, man’s natural thoughts became negative. His imaginative faculty was attacked. Good became evil, truth became lies, abundance became hunger, sweet became sweat. The list is endless. The wicked is the still at the business of carrying out incessant attacks on the minds. Hence, your mind is where all the battles of life are fought and won. If you loose there, you would loose in the reality. This is why you must deprogram yourself from all mind debris, cultural orientations and idiosyncrasies.

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Genesis.6:5).

God thinks and He thinks positively. Sons and daughters of God must think like God because like beget like. If God could see darkness and said let there be light, then you and I have no choice than to follow the same pattern. Your mouth is your destiny moulder. The mountains you’ve not spoken to are the ones that remain (Mathew.17:20).

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end (Jeremiah.29:11).

life is not a funfair but a warfare

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing (high logic) that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2.Cor.10:4-5)

Life is not a funfair but a warfare. We are in a battle with the wicked in order to collect our inheritance. That is what is going on in life. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly (John.10:10). It’s a fight between good and evil, breakthrough and break down. The bible says, fight the good fight of faith (1.Timothy.6:12). Put up a fight. You can’t win a war begging. David killed Goliath with his mouth before the actual killing took place.

The bad news for the wicked is that he had been stripped of all powers what he has left is an empty threat. All powers now belong to God who you are (This is very important: understand your son-tie relationship with God).

I have said: ye are gods; and all of you are the children of the most high (Psalm.82:6).

If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; (John 10:35)

He that cometh from above is above all (John.3:31). The spirit of God comes from above while the spirit of the devil comes from beneath and He that comes from above is above all. God is above all. You are a god. You’re above all.

Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: (Ephesians 1:21)

Listen: There are principalities in all localities. But all power belong to God who you are. You’re meant to operate in the class of God, you’re far above. You’re not spiritual but a spirit. Faith can be handled like a weapon. Therefore, take the shield of faith to return back to the sender all arrows of the wicked (Ephesians.6:16).
