Godliness – the covenant gateway to greatness in 2019 (B)


The covenant gateway to victory

What are the forces behind ungodly living?

We need to know that behind every ungodliness there is a spirit. What are the spirits? (Anywhere where you see spirit in the scripture it talks about the Holy spirit)

(a). The spirit of disobedience – The spirit of disobedience is responsible for every act of disobedience to scriptural injunctions. It takes a stronger spirit to destroy the weaker spirit. I pray that you receive fresh baptism of the spirit of obedience in the name of Jesus.

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” – Eph.2:2
“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them .” – Ez.36:27

 

The spirit of disobedience at work explains why a smoker will not stop smoking even when it’s written on cigarette that he will die young. It baffles me, this is out of ordinary. There are some people that have lost a quantum number of their years to the smoking of cigarette. Cigarette is a satanic addiction!

(b). The spirit of lies – Lies erode our redemptive dignity in Christ. It washes away our royalty. Lies as tiny as it is disqualifies for heaven.

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. [15] For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”  – Rev.22:14-15
“He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.” – PS.101:7

 

Our journey to greatness begins with Godliness

How do I overcome ungodly living?

(I). Faith – Believe in perfection. It’s what you believe that you’re empowered to become. You’re what you think (Prov.27:3). If you think that perfection is not possible you will never come close to perfect.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” – Mat.5:48

 

(ii). Watch out for wrong association – Friendship is not by force, it’s by choice. There is no association that leaves you neutral; your friends can either make you or break you.

“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” – 1.Cor.15:33
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” – prov.13:20

 

(iii). Prayer – Prayer against temptation is a prayer to pray. Consciously cultivate the habit of praying against temptation on a daily basis.

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” –  Mat.6:13

 

(iv). Fasting – There is a yoke destroying power in fasting. Unwanted habits like Lesbianism, masturbation, stealing, smoking, corruption, bribery, lieing, etc can only give way and be done away with by fasting and prayer.

“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?” – Is.58:6

 

(v). Choice – Our choice is our greatest weapon against ungodliness. Godliness is primarily a function of choice. Life is all about issue of choices and not chances. Our choice can overrun sin. Daniel was enthroned by choice.

“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.” – Dan.1:8

Cultivating Wisdom

Cultivating wisdom made us understand the true source of wisdom which is from above. It reveals that wisdom has nothing to do with the age of a person neither titles nor certificate. It gives the true definition of wisdom and describes the benefits which wisdom carries.


It is not the size of the brain that determines whether somebody is wise or not. Your head can be big and be fool. It neither the numbers of the age that determines whether somebody is wise or not. You can be 60 and be foolish. Age is a number. Likewise, it is not the the the number of your titles of position that make you wise. This explains a man at sixty years who is still sagging. This also explains a professor at 65 who still want to have sex with a student of his daughter’s age. Despite the hardcore evidence that smokers are liable to die young, foolishness has blocked the eyes of understanding of many adults.

What is Wisdom?

Wisdom has nothing to do with the size of the head, neither the numbers of age nor the amount of titles. The size of your head can be small and be wise, you can be sixteen and be wise, you can be unlearned person and be wise. Wisdom is knowing the right thing and doing it. It is knowing the right steps and taking it. Wisdom is  reasoning with God by taking scriptural calculated steps.

In our time, only those who are wise will make it. “And Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times.” Is.33:6. All those who knew success in life have their own secret of success. The secret of God is with them that fear Him. “As I was in the days of my youth, the secret of God was upon my tabernacle.” Job.29:4

It is foolishness to join the crowd. In most cases crowd mentalities are always prone to destruction. Those who do common things get common outcomes and those who do uncommon things get rare outcomes. There are lighted men and no lucky men. Don’t mistake light for luck. The scripture says, “The fruit of righteous is the tree of life; He that winneth souls is wise.” Prov.11:39. in order words, he that winneth not souls is foolish. In another scripture. “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, they that turn many to righteousness are stars forever and ever.” Dan.12:3. If you want to be numbered among the highflyers in life, join this mission of hunting after souls of the lost through prayer and outreach. “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1.Cor.2:9

A genuine soul hunter will be fit anywhere, anytime. Serving God is universal, therefore, those that serve God genuinely are always public figures. A person can be foolish for a lifetime, until he starts reasoning with God by seeing through the window of the scripture.

Wisdom is the principal thing, wisdom is from above and it is pure. Wisdom is the mother of poverty. You can’t access the rain of divine ideas and lack business ideas. The Holy spirit is the revelator whom Jesus has sent to teach us all – excluding nothing – things. “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when he, the spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth.” Jn. 16:12-13. Apart from God’s word, the Holy spirit teaches us about our business, academics, family, career, finances, relationships, etc.
