How To Deal With The Devil Frustrating Your Progress And Advancement


The scripture reveals vividly that life is a battlefield. What is going on in life is that we are fighting with the devil to claim our inheritance in Christ.

Hold this point down: any success that you will make in life will always attract the devil’s attention. There are forces like Pharaoh that won’t just let you go until you put up a fight. “Fight the good fight of faith.(1.Tim.6:12).”

Be sensitive, we are not fighting with flesh but with powers and principalities. There is a principality in every locality, so don’t get it twisted that your locality is the safest. The only safe place is the Kingdom.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places . (Ephesians 6:12 KJV)

Success is your right in Christ. Same applies to prosperity, good health & vitality, long life, fruitfulness and progress. God’s master plan for you is to move forward rather than being stagnant. 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 (Jer.29:11).

The scripture is loaded with this assurance of blessings and prosperities but there is an ‘Herod‘ that will rather terminate you than to live in God’s plan for your life. It is these Herod’s and Pharaoh’s that I want you to get angry at. By the time you finish reading this your life will never remain the same.

How To Deal With The devil BLOCKING Your Progress And Advancement In Life

Anytime I mention ‘Herod‘ or Pharaoh‘ I want you to picture them as the devil. Because these figures (including Nebuchadnezzar) represent ‘satanic figures’ in the scripture. It is my prayer that your Pharaoh will perish in the red sea, and your Nebuchadnezzar will enter into the bush…every pharaoh that won’t let you go will go for you.

Don’t just say amen to those prayers, you really need to know how to deal with the devil.

Catch me up on Monday, by 7:00PM Nigeria time for the continuation of the post. Thanks for reading and commenting in advance. God bless you.

Solution to the Stagnation, Frustration & Confusion of our Time


Darkness reigns until light prevails

At a particular point in life, you don’t seem know what to do, which step to take, whom to call or where to go. This point that i called the point of darkness. The word darkness connotes stagnation, confusion and frustration. Where there is darkness there is no progress, you will stand still at the spot being stagnant. Because there is no light to direct your path.

In the book of Exodus chapter 10, there was darkness all over the dwellings of the Egyptians while light was present in the dwelling of the Israelites. That indicates that God will always exempt His people.

Have you ever got to a junction in life where you don’t know what to do, which step to take, whom to call or where to go. What you need at this junction is light more than anything else.

Darkness Reigns Until Light Prevails

Darkness reigns until light prevails. It’s not your fought that you’re frustrated over an issue, it’s the quality of light that is not enough. It’s your knowledge of the word of God that is inadequate. Knowledge is the key to freedom. Ignorance is your problem not Satan.(Hosea.4:6)

Even there if there is gross darkness upon the face of the earth, the people of God will always be marked out any day, anytime and anywhere. God specializes in exempting His people from the plague of darkness.

Others can be frustrated or stranded of ideas but you are exempted. Others can be depressed and want to commit suicide but you case is different. Others can be sicked and take a leap of fate but not you. Others can be afflicted and affected by satanic assaults and attacks but you will be engulfed with divine security.

The thing that affects others is not permitted to affects you. others can be feeling the heat of draught, famine, poverty, hunger, conflict, wars, tension or pressure but as for you, you will eat plenty and satisfied and you shall never be ashamed. (Joel. 2:26) That is the promise of God for us.

But for these promises to manifest, you must carry an exemption mentality and you must plug yourself into the covenant of exemption by obeying the scriptural injunctions.

Live right, because It pays. Live to please God whether it’s convenient or inconvenient – that’s the key to enjoy your exemptions right in Christ.

Gross darkness has covered the earth. This is the jet set age. With so much jostling and bustling here and there. Consciously or unconsciously, even believers are caught up in the web. Even State men are confused. Those who are nobody – people like us – are the ones to become somebody.

We are the solution to world’s stagnation, frustrations & confusions. We are the solution center. I believe that there are some of us that will appear in white house proferring solution to the national and world’s problems.

Great state men like Daniel and Joseph were the solution of their times. There were forces to be reckoned with. Nobody is useless serving God. With the spirit of wisdom dwelling in us, we can rule this world without any pressure and conflict – Peacefully.

Whenever you get to a point where you don’t know what to do again, or confused, check your light level.

You can’t be illuminated and be frustrated. Light and darkness can’t coexist. God is light in Him there is no darkness at all (1John.1:5). The more of God residing inside you; the more you’re lighted. But if the devil and his host of demons are the ones running & ruling your life you will be manifesting dark products (releasing curses and magics upon yourself and others).

An individual can not belong to the two camps at the same time. It’s either you belong to God or devil, light or darkness; life or death – this has no middle way (mat.6:24). The realm which you belongs to will determine what you will be manifesting. Note that you can either be illuminated or frustrated. It’s all about the choice you make. Life is a choice. Choose wisely.

Circumstances That Require God’s Vengeance


Marriam-Webster defines vengeance as punishment inflicted in retaliation for an injury or offense: Retribution.

Vengeance is the act of doing something to hurt someone because that person did something that hurt you or someone else.

God’s vengeance is the judgement of God upon the oppressors of humanity.

What are the circumstances that require God’s vengeance?

When There Are Wicked And Corrupt Rulers In A Nation:- There is a need to call for vengeance when there are wicked rulers oppressing the mankind. There are some wicked rulers that would go at any length to acquire power. By: killing innocents citizens, funding chaos and uprising in the country, assassinating oppositions in the contest for power. The struggle for power should not be a do or die affair. These kind of inanimate behaviors need to be judged.

God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked everyday. (Psalm.7:11)

When There Is A Curse Hanging Over Your Destiny:- A long-term problematic circumstance can be termed “cursed.” However, an angry look must be looked upon any long-sequence problematic circumstance if enough must be practically be enough.

Remember, whatsoever that you cannot despise you cannot dominate. All curses including generational curse are reversible by crying for the invocation of God’s vengeance.

Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and Israel what hath God wrought (Num.23:23)

When There Is Demonic Affliction:- Many Christians are molested by the devil and his host of demons with all kinds of afflictions like: sickness, hunger, failure and loss. Until there is a cry for vengeance, even the born-again believer would be victimized.

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. (Jn.10:10)

For the record, I don’t pray for my enemy. When the enemy is invading your territory the best thing to do is to attack. Or else, there will be influx of rebels in your terrain causing chaos and havocs. Take the spiritual weapon of prayer and fasting and confront your oppositions until they are no longer in existence.

THE BATTLE FIELD OF LIFE


Life is a battlefield. It’s a fighting ground where the enemy has been ordained to loose. Life is primarily a contest between good and evil. Between life and death; success and failure; Health and Sickness; etc.

Our major opposition here on earth is the devil. What is going on in life is that we are fighting with the devil in order to collect our inheritance. 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 (Jn.10:10).

There are many people who have not been experiencing any progress in their lives since the day they were born. It’s not their fault. There is a force behind it. Until you put up a fight against the enemy (Devil) to collect your birthright from your parents (God) don’t expect a change. Your progress and success in life will be farfetched.

The bible says, “Fight the good fight of faith (1Tim.6:12).”

The devil is not a fairy tale. He is not a fantasy neither a drama. The devil is real. There is a principality in every locality. The devil does not respect your age, colour, position, status or location. Every natural man is prone to an attack from the wicked (Devil).

You better take the shield of faith to return back to the sender every arrow targeted at you by the wicked.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Eph.6:16).”

How can one put up a fight?

There is nothing physical in life’s battle. The battle of life is spiritual which can only be fought and won by engaging in a spiritual warfare.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph.6:12).”

The Spiritual Warfare, “Praise”: Why Praise?

When it comes to fighting battles in life, many people talk about prayer but only few are aware about PRAISE.

For so many years until now, many preachers have been preaching so much about prayer as the spiritual tool for fighting battle but placed little or no premium on praise. Praise has always been preached as minor, as a subsidiary. Friend, may I tell you this, praise is a MAJOR when it comes to the battle of life.

This battle is not yours. Transfer it unto the Lord by getting into praise. Hold your peace and stand still.

” And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Among, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah, and they were smitten (2 Chro.20:22).”

Hold your position in praise. You are a spectator in this battle. You can’t get into a praise warfare and miss out divine intervention. The wall of Jericho came down flat at the instance of praise. Paul and Silas who were locked in the prison brought down God’s presence in the middle of praise.

“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 every one’s bands were loosed (Acts 16:25).”

The devil who has been holding you in captive inside his dungeon can be defeated like a child play only if you can enter into praise.

Many people, even Christians are inside prisons today. But the last thing they will do is to get into praise.

Understand this, those who work hard and get little results are in the company of those who have not added praise to there efforts. Appreciation equals multiplication (Jer. 30:19)

I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors before. But, I have never seen a praise warrior been frustrated. You can’t praise God with understanding and be stranded in life (Jn.6:6).

Hear this, a praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere. A ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

“Who is like unto thee, O Lord , among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?(Ex.15:11).”

God still works WONDERS in praise.

If you want to seek God, pray. If you want to see God, praise Him. It’s my prayer as you get into praise with understanding you will practically see my God in actions.

MEDIA OR DEVIL. WHO IS ATTACKING OUR MINDS?


EVIL IS PROGRESSIVE EVERYDAY. OUR MEDIA HAS NOW BOMBARDED OUR MINDS WITH SO MANY SAD NEWS. NEGATIVE NEWS NOW SPREAD AS WIDE AS FIRE. IT’S NOT AS IF THERE ARE NO GOOD NEWS OUT THERE ANYMORE ONLY IF THERE ARE PEOPLE TO REPORT IT.

Since the fell of the evil man (devil), man’s imagination has geometrically (increasingly) become only evil continually. 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 (Gen.6:5). That’s why you need to deprogram yourself from this negative pattern of thinking. Today, the devil is still at the business of attacking people’s mind ceaselessly. That is why the bible says, Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life (Prov.4:23).

Understand that your mind is the core instrument of satanic attacks. That’s where all the battles of life are fought and won. If you allow a negative thought to hold a grip on you, very soon it will become a reality.

It’s so sad that we have now been bodily oriented. Many of us know a lot about the economic conditions of our countries. Many of us can say a lot about the GDP rate and the stock exchange ratios of our countries. Many of us can say a lot about the EPL. We can even mention all the names of the players in the league. We can also tell about their worth, when the transaction window is going to be opened or closed. Likewise we can say a lot about the doctor’s reports.

However, it’s a pity that the only scriptural verse that we know and can reel off like a memory verse is John 3:16.

I’m not saying that knowing all those things are bad. There is nothing wrong in hearing news, following a league or a celeb or being current.

But my point is that, until we are loaded with the word of God the devil will rub us off of our birthrights in Christ. After Jesus has fasted for forty days and forty nights. The devil came and told Him some lies that were scripturally backed up, thinking with his flat mind that Jesus would have bought into his ideas. But thank God that Jesus applied the right scripture and overcame the devil.

Hear this: it’s the word of God that you will go for whenever the devil strikes. That will also put him under your toes. What if you don’t know anything about the word or what the word has said concerning you and your destiny? Well, if that is the case obviously you will be cheated and molested by the wicked.

Understand this, principality is not our problem. Our problem is ignorance. Also understand that It’s the quality of your light that will determine the quality of your life. The devil has been stripped of all powers – what he has left is empty threat. All powers now belong to God whom you are. I have said, ye are gods all of you are the children of the most high (Psalm.82:6). 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(Eph.1:21).

Those scriptures have made me to believe that the level my operation now is on a wavelength with God. We are far above! We are to operate in the class of God.

Having read and understand the book of Ephesians1:21, I have had the boldness to say that 10billions demons can not kill me. That is not a pride. It’s life from the fountain of a revealed truth. It’s impossible for a demon to pursue after a fire. The God that I serve is consuming fire (Heb.12:29). You too can be the next satanic tormentor only if you can reposition yourself for power.

God has given us the power to tread upon serpent and scorpions and over all the power of the enemies and nothing shall by any means hurt us(Lk.10:49).

Our zone In life is a hurt free zone as long as we are following instructions. There is a seal of protection that God has placed upon every genuine and authentic believer.

Evil is geometrically progressing everyday. Day to day we are expose to many evil and drainy news which have become the source of many people depression. It’s not as if there are no good news again. There are still goodnews if there are people to report them.

Why not choose to renew your mind with the word of God today. Why not reprogram your mind for victory today. Whatsoever that you can’t despise with dominate you.

Note: My post is not meant to impress or excite my readers. But to impact them. Why not join the winning team today. Friend, receive my invitation to give your life to Jesus and your life will never remain the same again.

FAITH IN LIGHT


Life cannot be beautiful than your faith.

C). Through the instrumentality of faith – Your faith level equals your miracle level. Hear this: you can’t have what the level of your faith can’t carry. This is why it’s our responsibility to build up our faith by being responsible to spiritual things.

Jude 1:20 KJV
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. Engaging the HolyGhost in our prayer life is sure way to build our faith.”

Nothing moves God like our faith. The three Hebrew guys would rather die than to bow for other gods except the Mighty God they had known.

With that dogged determination in them they were rescued from the furnace of fire. They saw there God worth dying for and God was moved.
The devil who is our enemy is helpless with our faith, he has no choice than to race on his heels. Even death is bows out to faith.

Even the most hopeless situation can take a new shape with our faith at work. No situation can be as hopeless as the dry bone in Ez.37.

With faith you can walk  in the valley of shadow of death with no harm.
the valley of the shadow of death is the territory of the wicked. the wicked is the devil.

Why do I need light?

Those who are in light are the solution that the world needs today. We are in a period of gross darkness. Even statemen are confused. Helter skelter everyone runs.

By redemption we are center of attraction.

You can’t be lighted and be useless. (Biblical examples: Daniel and Joseph).

The cheapest way to freedom


Freedom. Walking out of darkness.

Every natural happening has its supernatural antecedent. The supernatural is the backbone of life. Trying to lift a problem without the supernatural is like trying to lift a lorry without a jack.

The race is not to the swift neither the battle is to the strong. Life is ordinary toiling outside God’s factor. If you think you are smart that you can cause things to happen without God, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Those who are smarter than have gone.

The reason why you are frustrated about your situation is because you have not invited God to your issue. When the storm came the disciples of Jesus Christ were wearing themselves out frantically in a bid to save their life. Until they remember to invite Jesus into the matter, the storm persist.

Until your give your life to Christ and obey His instructions don’t except the storm of your life to be calmed.

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

Life is complex, there is simplicity in Christ that makes life simple, without Jesus you can do nothing.

“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 he can do nothing.  If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch; and is withered and men gathered them and cast them into the fire and they are burned.Jn.15:5-6

If you don’t want to be gathered by   natural men and the wicked (devil) for destruction, receives Jesus into your life and start obeying His commandments. All round blessings will become the order of the day for you.

“Whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continue therein he not being a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Jms.1:25

Friend, I have brought to you the perfect law of liberty, embrace it and live. The word of God is the authentic way to freedom.
