The Mystery of Prayer and Fasting


The mystery of prayer and fasting

Fasting is not an advice, not an admonition. Fasting is a commandment

Matthew 6:17 KJV
But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;”

In the same vein, prayer is a commandment.
Matthew 6:6 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.”

In the text above, the word when indicates that there is a period that you must fast and pray.

Benefits of Prayer and Fasting

1). Higher Dimension of Spiritual Authority – The scripture says that he that is above is above all (Jn.3:31). I can’t imagine a witch pursuing me, this is not a pride, it’s drawing light from the fountain of life. Because I’m a far above (Eph.1:21). The witch is a weaker being
By God grace, I’m now a certified Satan tormentor.

Authority can never be imposed, authority is conferred by service. We can only serve our way into the place of authority. And, prayer and fasting is a sure platform of service. David was serving by keeping flocks before he was called to enthronement. Jesus was obedient the point of death on the cross before enthronement (Phil2). Hear this: anybody who needs authority must be ready to serve.

Wait a minute: prayer and fasting is the surest way to exercise authority over every power of principality and dominion over every affair of life (Eph.1:21). The truth is that power is a core aspect or element of authority. This takes us to our second benefit, power

2). Power is the end product of our genuine engagement in prayer and fasting. When Jesus went to fast for forty days and nights, on His return, He returned with power and authority casting out demons (demons cried out His name and left their victims), healing all manners of sicknesses and diseases.

Acts 10:38 KJV
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

Acts 8:7 KJV
“For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them : and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.”

Understanding the values of prayer and fasting

3). Living wonders – Prior to the 40days prayer and fasting Jesus was just like any other man in the land. But after, wonders exploded! People began to exclaimed “What manner of man is this; that even the winds and the sea obey Him!” (mat.8:27)….. “We have seen strange things today (Lk.5:26).

Therefore I pray before the conclusion of this ongoing prayer and fasting your life will keeps springing forth surprises. Every of your questioned mark will turned exclamation in the name of Jesus.

4). Breakthrough order of testimonies – There are some mountains that will not give way until you put up a fight through prayer and fasting. By prayer and fasting your absolute freedom from satanic oppression(sickness, disease, untimely death, grovelling in poverty, stagnation, spells and curses, etc) is guaranteed.

Isaiah 58:6 KJV
“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?”

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.

Therefore I pray, after this ongoing prayer and fasting every mountain that will not let you go will give way for you in the name of Jesus.

Prayer and fasting can move mountains and dispell

5). Light (Illumination) – Verse 10 of Isaiah.58 says,

Isaiah 58:10 KJV
“And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:”

You can’t be lighted and be tormented. God’s word is the container of God’s light. The incoming of His word emits light and shatters darkness. Light and darkness can’t coexist. You belong to one camp or the other. This is why you better romance with God’s word as you plugged yourself into this ongoing prayer and fasting…

Psalm 119:130 KJV
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
1 John 1:5 KJV
“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

Therefore I declare that every darkness that has been dogging your path hitherto goes out by the entrance of light in the name of Jesus.

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.”

 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.

Your questions are mostly welcomed.

The light


There are lighted men

 

There is nothing magical about scaling great height in life. No man is born failure. Success in life is not meant for some categories of people, if it is, it means you are special.

 

Anybody from anywhere at anytime can cause things to happen no matter where you come from around the corner of the world. Whether you are black, brown, yellow or white you can be numbered among the world high flyers.

 

This is why you will have to repent the impossibility syndrome. “With men this is impossible, with God all things are possible.” Mat.16:26.

 

You are not inferior

 

Light is the surest solution to a man’s problem. God’s word is the container or carrier of God’s light. The entrance of the word of God sparks off light.

 

“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” PS.119:130

 

Light dispels darkness. When light comes in, darkness goes out. Light shatters darkness. The incoming of light sends the devil – responsible for the losses and failure that people suffer – on his heels.

 

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” 1Jn.1:5

 

Wait a minute, frustration is helpless with illumination. Death is hopeless with life. In the presence of light, poverty has no choice than to pack. Sickness has no dwelling place in light.

 

And he 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

 

This is graphic of love, trust and believe

 

Failure is a product of darkness. Light is knowledge. Light is revelation. Light is illumination. Knowledge is the key to freedom.

 

The devil is not a problem. Ignorance is the problem.

 

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea.4:6

 

Light is all you need to make it in life. There are no lucky men, there are lighted men. The devil fear lighted men to his pant.  Stay connected to the light frequency and you will become the next devil’s tormentor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Free gift


salvation is a free gift.

Ye are the chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation; a peculiar people that you should shew forth praise to him who hath called out of darkness into the marvelous light – 1.Pet.2:9.

I don’t know who God is speaking to tonight, but i’m dead certain that God need someone to move from dark area into the light. Darkness doesn’t fight with light. Frustration doesn’t struggle with illumination.

New birth is a free gift. Christianity is not owned by a religious body, it does not belong to any organization, it’s not a philosophy neither a religion. It’s the release of God’s life into human vessel – this made Christianity to be different from other religions.

If any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things are passed away behold all things are become new – 2.Cor:5:17

A marvelous God is calling someone into his marvelous light to enjoy a marvelous life. It might be too late to get ready, live ready. Your past doesn’t matter, receives Jesus today as your personal Lord and saviour or rededicate your life to Jesus – in case you’ve given your life to Christ before but you are not too sure if you’re still inline with God’s purpose.

God bless you as you make the right choice to follow Jesus, you will run the race to the end by God grace.

 

 

You cannot be lighted and be tormented


You can't be lighted and be tormented

Darkness reigns until light appears. The moment you turn on the light in your room, what does darkness do? It is dispelled. When light comes in darkness is goes out. Darkness doesn’t struggles with light. Infact, darkness only exist in the absence of light. You can’t be in the two at same time, it is either you’re in the light or darkness.

Every problem confronting you is a form of darkness: sickness, poverty, frustration, failure, stagnation, weakness, etc.

He did not called them gods because they went to church, or because they were preachers. He called them gods because the word of God gained access into them.

“If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken.” In.10:35

In the beginning was the word, and the word of with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shinneth in darkness and the darkness comprehend it not” Jn.1:1-5

The entrance of the word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”

Darkness is hopeless with light. The moment you are lighted, darkness has no choice than to leave. The most seemingly impossible situation will takes shape at the entrance of light. You can be lighted and be tormented.

Your knowledge about God’s word is the key to your freedom. Until your light gained divine approval, don’t expect to be free from all the buffetings and intimidations that the word suffers from the enemy today.

“This is the message we have heard of him; and declared unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” 1.Jn.1:5

When light appears on the scene, darkness disappears. When divine health appears, sickness is disappears. When success comes in, failure goes out. When strength comes In, weakness comes out. When abundance comes in, hunger becomes a story.

The scripture says in him there is no darkness at all. The last darkness you saw will ever be the last you will ever see in the name of Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

Releasing the master Key to Manifest Your Sonship


Every affliction hanging around for a while is a curse. The bible says, weeping is not permitted to go beyond a night.

Releasing the master key to manifest your sonship

“For anger endureth but for a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” PS.30:5.

I don’t know what the devil has planted in your life which has been tormenting you hitherto, today marks an end to it.

Don’t take nonsense as a believer, whatever you can’t despise you can’t dominate. Many believers are  buffeted today by  the devil and his host of demons,  not because they have  the right to do so; but due to their ignorance of the knowledge of the word. Instead of checking the scripture they are busy checking the economic rates of their countries. This is why every believer must grow and mature in the word of God. The word you read in the bible are not just mere letters, they are life. Jesus said, they word I speak to you, they are life.

You can’t be baby forever, you need to grow. An heir of say 10 years can’t be made a king, irrespective of his entitlement to the throne. He will be put under regency who will decides what is best for him until he matures for the throne. Whatever the regency decides for him, he has to accept.  So also, until you grow and mature as a son, don’t expect to claim your inheritance in Christ.

Releasing the master key to manifest your sonship

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the Sons of  God.” Rom.8:19.

The reality of your inheritance in Christ await the manifestation of your sonship.

It would be funny to see a cat chasing a lion, that is the way it is when you’re afraid of the devil. You’re a lion while the children of the wicked are dogs. The scripture says so.

“But she answered, it is not meet to take children’s bread and cast it to the dog.” Mat.15:26

It’ll be so funny to see an adult putting feeder in his mouth drinking milk.

An adult feeding with FEEDER

 

If you fail to grow and mature in the things of God, don’t expect to be free from the dungeon if the wicked.

“For everyone that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he his a babe” Heb.5:13

Knowledge is the master key to the liberty of God’s people from destruction (Hosea.4:6). Sit down, study, and practice what you learnt in order to  mature in the things of God, or else the devil will keep molesting you.

Listen to this, every mountain which has been lingering  around your life for very longtime is a curse. This is why you must  take an angry look at thing you despise so much, and tell it “enough is enough.” serving God guarantees you to live cursed free life.

There is no enchantment against Jacob neither is there any divination against Israel.” Num.23:23.

Whatsoever you cannot despise you cannot dominate.

Let me tell you this, I’ve gotten my authority over poverty and failure in life since the day I discovered Deu.8:18 and Mat.6:33.

Until your light gained divine approval on the issue confronting you, your freedom is not guaranteed. When light comes in darkness is dispelled irrespective of the intensity of the darkness. Your light will set devil be on the run “The entrance of the words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”Psm.119:120

Darkness is helpless with light

God has not called us to suffer like the world. He has not called us to live a life of pity, despondence, shame and reproach. He has called to live a life of fulfilment, enthronement and glory.

Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called them he also justified: and whom he justified them he also glorified.” Rom.8:30.
