Faith Diary (What Are The Benefits Of Following Scriptural Instructions?)


Every Scriptural Instruction Is For Our Profiting. God Has Not Commanded Us In Order To Grieve us. He Has Commanded Us In Order To Bless Us. Serving God Is Not For Our Punishment. Serving God Is For Our ‘Polishment.For This Is The Love Of God, That We Keep His Commandments: And His Commandments Are Not Grievous (1Jn.5:3).

What Are The Benefits Of Following Scriptural Instructions?

(1). Open Rewards: It’s Your Secret Engagement In Kingdom Advancement Prayer (Prayer For The Lost/Unsaved ) That Engenders Open Rewards (Mat.6:6,9/33). Understand This, God Does Not Reward Group. He Rewards Individual.

“Behold I Come Quickly My Rewards Are With Me To Give Every Man According To His Work Shall Be.” (Rev.12:22).

So Therefore, Make Your Engagement To Be Highly Personal. In The Scripture, The Servants That Were Given Talents To Be Invested Were Called One By One To Collect Their Rewards – Not In Group. God Does not Promote Group. He promotes Individual According To His Work. It’s The Level Of Your Engagement That Determines The Level Of Your Rewards.

(2). Supernatural Addition And Multiplication: Our God Is A God Of Addition. Our God Is A God Of Multiplication. Nothing Remain Worse Serving God.

“Seek Ye First The Kingdom Of God And His Righteousness And All This Things Shall Be Added Unto You.” (Mat.6:33)

By Placing High Premium On The Pursuit Of God’s Agenda Here On Earth (Saving The Lives Of The Unsaved From The Power Of Darkness) Will Cause What Others Are Running After To Be Running After You.

Serving God Does Not Reduce People. Serving God Expands People. God Does Not Use People. God Blesses People.

Out Of The Shall Proceed Thanksgiving. The Voice Of Them That Make Merry I Will Multiply Them And They Shall Not Be Small. I Will Also Glorify Them And They Shall Not Be Few (Jer.30:19)

You See, Multiplication Is A Product Of Appreciation. In Order Word, Appreciation Equals Multiplication. The Reason Many Are Few In Life Is Due To The Kept Of A Complain Heart. A Heart Of Ingratitude, Bitterness And Hatred Will Never Get Anything From God. (Also See, Jn 6:6-7 & 1Cro.10:10).

(3). Longevity: Serving God Guarantees Long Life With A Good Old Age.

“And Ye Shall Serve The Lord Your God…The Number Of Thy Days I Will Fulfil.” (Ex.23:25&27b).

Serving God By Obeying Scriptural Instructions Also Guarantees Strength. And Strength Indicates Long Life (Appearing In Church Establishes Strength).

They Go From Strength To Strength Everyone Of Them In Zion Appeareth Before God.” (Psalm.84:7).

(4). Divine Health And Vitality: The Cheapest Way To Live a Sickness Free Life Is To Serve God By Plugging Into The Frequency Of Obedience To Scriptural Injunctions(Ex.23:25). In God’s Agenda, You’re Not Permitted To Be Sicked.

Understand That Jesus Has Fully Paid The Price Of Your Sickness On The Cross. He Took Your Infirmities The Same Way He Took The Place Barnabas On The Cross.

“That It Might Be Fulfilled Which Was Spoken By Esaias The Prophet, Saying Himself Took Our Infirmities, And Bare Our Sickness.” (Mat.8:17) .

If I Can’t Imagine Jesus In An Accident Wreck Why Should Be Found In One, The Motor That Would Kill Me Will Never Be Made…..He Was Bruised And Wounded So That I Wouldn’t Be Found In Any.

(5). Freedom From Satanic Oppression: Your Subscription To The Idea Of Serving God By Obeying His Injunctions Guarantees Your Total Freedom From The Shackles Of Satanic Oppression.

“Is This Not The Fast That I Have Chosen To Break Every Yoke. To Let The Oppressed God Free (Is.68:1-3).”

Serving God Through Prayer And Fasting Establishes Your Access To A Higher Dimension Of Spiritual Authority Which Empowers You To Become A Satanic Tormentor.

Before Jesus Went To Fast For Forty Days And Night He Was Just Like Any Other Man In The Land. But On His Return, He Returned With Another Dimension Of Power. Demons Cried Out His Name And Left Their Victims. He Went About Doing Miracles, Healing All Manner Of Sicknesses And Diseases. And People Began To Exclaim, “What Manner Of Man Is This.” “We Have Seen Strange Things Today.”

You Too Can Have Greater Testimony Only If You Can Enter Into The Commandment Of Prayer And Fasting. The Devil Will Be Kept Restless Under Your Toes. Jesus Says, Greater Than The Works That I Do, You Shall Do -Through The Instrumentality Of Faith (Jn.14:21). Your Question Marks Can Become Exclamation Marks If You Can Choose To Turn Today.

In Summary, Every Scriptural Injunction Is For Our Benefit. The Benefits Of Obeying Scriptural Injunctions Are: Open Rewards, Supernatural Addition And Multiplication, Longevity; Divine Health And Vitality; And Freedom From Satanic Oppression.

Kingdom Advancement Prayer(KAP) is for our profiting


Kingdom Advancement prayer is for our profiting

All commandments of God are for our profiting. God has not commanded us in order to grieve us; He has commanded us in order to bless us. In this post you will learn what KAP means and its benefits.

What is kingdom Advancement Prayer (KAP)?

KAP is the prayer that focuses on the enlargement of the kingdom of God. It’s a kingdom oriented prayer such as: (1). Praying for the souls of the lost to be saved and established in the church and faith (2). Praying for the growth and expansion of the church (3). Praying for the word of God to increase – miracle brings people to church while the word of God keeps them (4). Praying for the destruction of the evil force that has been holding people down from getting saved (5). Praying for the flow of multitudes into the kingdom of God (6). Praying for the needs of other members to be met (7). Praying for new converts and members to be established in church and faith.

If there is a man to pray there is a God to answer

Why Must I Engage In Praying Kingdom Advancement Prayer (KAP)?

(1). The advancement of the kingdom is God’s prior interest, the heart beat of God (see: Mat.6:9/33; 1Kings.17:13-15).

(2). KAP is a commandment (God is a commander. He basically operates on commandments. His commandments are non-negotiable. We are to play our part by obeying – Mat.6:6). When from that scripture indicates that there is a period that you must pray.

(3). KAP engenders open rewards (it’s your secret prayer that provokes the release of open rewards – Mat.6:6).

(4). KAP secures your access to divine health and vitality (Ex.23:25) – KAP is one of the cheapest platform of service and serving God guarantees your access to divine health. In Lk.2:37, we saw Hannah at the age of 84 served God with prayer and fasting day and night.

(5). KAP enhances the flow of supernatural favour ( favour is what colours your efforts and covers your errors – we are not achievers we are privilege receivers. Mat.6:33).

(6).   What others are running after will be running after you (redirection of traffic takes place when we engage in KAP. It causes the release of all kinds of additions and multiplications. Mat.6:33, Jer.30:11)

Prayer does not only change things; prayer changes people

(7). It guarantees longevity (Ex.23:27) – you are not permitted to die young as long as you’re engaging in KAP. Serving God guarantees long life. 120years is the covenant age for every genuine believer. In psalm 84:7, they go from strength to strength as they appear in Zion. Zion is a place of worship(church). Appearing in church guarantees strength and strength indicates long life. Strength is also needed for exploits (Dan.11:32).

(8). KAP also guarantees financial prosperity (in Job.36:11, we saw that serving God guarantees you to spend your days in pleasure and years in prosperity).

(9). KAP facilitates answered prayers and; (John. 15:16)

(10). Fulfilled expectations.

Proverbs 23:18 KJV
“For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.”

Why not buy into the idea of engaging in KAP today – as a lifestyle. I bet you your life will never remain the same.

I would love to hear from you if you have comments, questions and ideas. God bless you.

 

 

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

Continues…

How can I start following and obeying God’s commands?

You are who or  what you follow and who or what you follow determines who or what follows you.

1). Let kingdom advancement prayer become a part and parcel of your life. Let it become an habit to intercede or stand in gap for others who are lost and unsaved to be convicted and converted into Christ.

We saw in book of Luke.2:34 that prayer is a platform of service which is available for a lifetime. Are you not happy to hear that, Hannah at the age of 84 served God in the temple by praying kingdom advancement prayer day and night.

Luke 2:37 KJV
“And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.”

Kingdom advancement prayer is a commandment. The word “when” in Mat.6:6 indicates that there is period that you must pray. And in Mat.6:9, after thanksgiving, the next item of priority is the God’s kingdom before asking for bread and butter and in verse 33, we are ordered to seek first the God’s kingdom if we must enjoy all kinds of seditions.

The truth is that most of our prayers are self-centered in nature. Only if we can turn all our demands into kingdom oriented prayers the supernatural grace will be flowing  cheaply.

2). Engage in soul winning – Soul winning is not a gift neither a talent. Today, many Christians mostly say that they don’t have the gift of soul winning, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Soul winning is a God giving mandate for every believer which facilitates answered prayers and divine favour.

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.”

Other scriptural reference: JER. 1:5

3). Subscribe Into the covenant platform of seed time and harvest time. The natural man’s law States that “A bird at hand is worth more than two in the bush” this is a discounting principle on the ground of facts and assumptions.

On the contrary, the supernatural law states that “It’s more blessed to give than to receiving” Until you become an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activities.

Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Other scriptural reference : PS.126:5-6

4). Consciously cultivate the attitude of praise – Praise is commandment, let everything that has breath praise the lord (PS.150:6). It’s where God lives, God inhabits the praise of Israel. If you want to seek God pray, if you want to see God praise Him (PS.22:3).

Don’t wait until something spectacular happen before you put on the garment of praise. Appreciation equals multiplication. The reason may are few and small in life is because they have been disobeying the commandment of praise.

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.”

Psalm 67:5-6 KJV
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [6] Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

5). Let your engagement be mixed with faith – As you are putting all the steps listed above into work also let it be mixed with faith – Faith is simply seeing the invincible and believing the impossible. Without faith it’s impossible to please God (Heb.11:6).

Listen to this: Let both what you think and say agree with each other. This the best principle of faith. You are what you think (Prov.22:3) and it’s what you can boldly declare with your mouth that God will confirmed.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” – Prov.18:23

 

 

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

CONTINUES..

2). It  guarantees divine health and vitality

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“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.”

A time came that I was still in school, they said that I have typhoid and they gave me plenty of drugs to live on. I said to myself I can never have it, Jesus already took it, He took my place in sicknesses, diseases, pains and bruises on the cross.

And, as a matter of truth Jesus had been healing people long enough, even before the doctor started schooling. Therefore, I disposed all the drugs given to me. That’s was the end of it, typhoid gone and never to return, I have been free since then. Today, I’m the healthiest person on the planet.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

Hear this: faith is not a risk, doubt is a big risk.  Your trust in God will go a long way to bail you out from the torments and afflictions of the devil.

3). Financial Prosperity – All through my school days, I had been pursing after God’s interest, being faithful to my thites and offerings and yet I did not lack anything..I spent closed/over to a million for school fees, feeding, rent and transport. There was no strain in me at getting the money. I enjoyed divine favour on every side.

God can give you wealth but you must acknowledge Him with your thites and other giving platforms. Dive into the covenant of seed time and harvest, giving and receiving and poverty will no longer be your neighbour.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure.”

4). Open rewards – Seeking after the number one interest of God, which is the lives of the unsaved souls – both on the prayer altar and harvest field –  enhances open rewards (Mat.6:6/9, Jn.15:16)

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

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

Anything can fail; our obedience to scriptural commandments can never fail. Obedience is the master key to all scriptural rewards. One thing that my Father in Christ normally says is that BE GOD GREEDY. That is if you’re greedy of what serving God offers you’ll not have to be coerced to obey.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3 KJV
“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 thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”

When I entered into university, I came in with academic barrenness, in my first year my CGPA was about 2.82 – I had a carry over then. After seeing all my results in the 1st year, I said to myself NO! NO! NO! Things must not continue like this.

Thank God a new pastor was brought to our church by this moment who unravelled the  mystery of the scripture to us..I’m proud of the man of God. I immediately subscribed Into the idea of obeying God’s Instructions without negotiating. Ever since then I have been enjoying good grades.. By the end of my final year I came out (graduated) with 12A’s, 18B’s and 21C’s SECOND CLASS UPPER DIVISION with a CGPA of 3.54 (I Studied economics). With my engagement in obedience I had experienced a dramatic turn around in my studies.

WHAT ARE THE PRIVILEGES/BENEFITS OF OBEYING GOD’S COMMANDS?

1). It engenders academic breakthrough & excellence –  The testimony above will serve as an example…OH YES! Serving God guarantees your success in school..The Holy spirit is the spirit in us of excellence who will teach us all things, academic inclusive (Jn.14:26).

Joshua 1:8 KJV
“This book of the 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.”

The three Hebrew boys were so exceptional at their response  to all the enquiries of the king and were found ten times better than the magicians and astrologers. Daniel could dissolve doubts and interprete dreams and the same Daniel had the spirit of HOLY GOD, excellence, and fear of God (The Holy Spirit). Dan.1:17/20

The profitable approach to prayer and fasting


the profitable approach to fasting and prayer

Fasting is fastening or afflicting your body in order to edify your spirit. Fasting is neither an advice nor an admonition.  Fasting is a commandment (Mat.6:17)

Isaiah 58:5-6 KJV
“Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him ? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord ? [6] Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”

There is a chosen fast and an inspired fast. A chosen fast is a proclaimed. Example of an inspired fast is the fast embarked upon by Ezekiah. Do you want a change of situation? Be inspired to fast.

Matthew 6:6, 17 KJV
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. [17] But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;”

The word “when” connotes time. That means there is a particular time that you must fast….Prayer is the value offer in the fast. Prayer is what gives value to our fasting. Fasting without prayer is a wasteful exercise. It’s a mere punishment.

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

 

A picture of food which is used to break fasting

 What are the profitable approaches to fasting and prayer?

 

1). Come into fasting and prayer with praises – If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. Don’t come into fasting and prayer with murmurings.

Philippians 2:14 KJV
“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:”

 

2). Enter into fasting and prayer with expectations – It’s so disgusting to see many believers who come to God without an expectation. Be expectant. Without expectation there will be no manifestation.

Proverbs 23:18 KJV
“For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.”

Also, be specific with your expectation(s). God does not take assumption, be specific in your demand(s). For instance, if you’re looking for a child, what type of child do you want? Male or female.

Mark 10:51 KJV
“And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.”

 

3). Come with prayer – Make sure that you pray. God does not answer fasting. Prayer is what God answers. Fasting is meant to facilitates answered prayer(s).

Matthew 17:20-21 KJV
“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. [21] Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

 

In the above scripture, Mountain can only be moved by “fasting & prayer” – not fasting alone. Listen: There are certain mountains that will not give way until you fast.

 

4). Come with thanksgiving – Prayer(s) unaccompanied with thanksgiving may not fulfill its potency. Thanksgiving is the seal of answered prayer.

Philippians 4:6 KJV
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

 

In English language, the word “with” plays the role of emphasis (importance). Hence, ensure that you wrapped up your prayer with thanksgiving.

 

Understanding the values of prayer and fasting

The following are the blessings & benefits of fasting and prayer

Authority, Wonders, Miracle, Breakthrough, Revelation, insights, Restoration, Illumination, Divine ideas, Overflowing blessings, Healings, Divine Health, Moved Mountains, barriers, & obstacles, Dispelled Darkness, Emits Light, Multipurpose Solution, Turn around, Strength, Longevity, Dominion, Wealth, exploits, New heights, Ground breaking & explosive testimonies, Destroyed yoke, Freedom from Satanic oppression, breaking of negative habits, Sanctification, Liberation & speed, access to deep-things (divine secret)

References: Is.58:5-14, Is.40:31, Mat.17:21, PS.25:14

Your questions are mostly welcomed.

Love: the master key to overflowing blessings (b)


Benefits of being kingdom minded

 

Being kingdom minded engenders divine favour and open rewards. What others are running after will be running after you. Traffics can be redirected for your sake

1 Kings 17:13-16 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. [14] For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth. [15] And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. [16] And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord , which he spake by Elijah.”

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

If God’s Kingdom does not holds any attraction to you don’t expect God to commit Himself to your welfares.

 

How can I love God?

 

Obey God’s commands

 

God is a commander. He primarily operates on commandments which are nonnegotiable. His commandments are attached together with blessings and benefits. Obedience to God’s injunctions is the capital evidence of love.

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.”

Sometimes, God’s injunctions or instructions might look very stupid, it might look too simple. But listen, that is the answer to your problems.

One thing I would also like us to know is that there is no fear in love. Anxiety is the cardinal evidence of doubt. U can’t love your spouse and be afraid of him/her.

1 John 4:18 KJV
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
