Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


We are not working for God; we are working with God

Partnership is the gateway to all round settlements. Wrong mentality about partnership will reduce engagement. Understand this: we are not working for God; we are working with God. God does not use people; He blesses people. He is not a taskmaster; He is a paymaster.

Revelation 22:12 KJV
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Those who are partnering with God are not far from all round settlement in all areas of life.”

In partnership, every shareholder is entitled to a dividend. So also you can’t partner with God and miss out His dividend.

Isaiah 45:19 KJV
“I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”

We are not working for God we are working with God

 How can I partner with God?

Go for His mandates – The 2 mandates of God for every Christian are prayer and soul winning (lk.18:1, Jn.15:16, Jer.1:5). “All men,” not all pastors, ought to pray and not to faint. Prayers are not meant for pastors alone. Prayer is a commandment. “Pray without ceasing.”(1Thes.5:17). Fainting in prayer equals failing in life. Prayer does not only change things; prayer changes people.

Luke 9:29 KJV
“And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.”

Whatever you pray for others answers back to you. It is human intercession that provokes the release of divine intervention. Standing in the gap for others (“the lost” and nations) is the surest pathway to a life of  fulfillment.

 Matthew 6:9-10, 33 KJV
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. [10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Hannah at 84 years old, prayed kingdom advancement prayer (lk.2:37). Daniel prayed kingdom advancement prayer to a point that the king had no choice than to call him Belteshazzar ( a god’s name).

Daniel 4:18 KJV
“This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.”

Fear GodWe make our marks in life by fearing God. How can I fear God? By obeying scriptural injunctions (Jn.14:21)

Our journey to greatness in life begins with the fear of God. We live in a kingdom of choices and not chances. The ball is in our courts. Daniel made a choice to be different (Dan.1:8) you too choose to be different.

Daniel 1:8 KJV
“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.”
It’s common saying that “If you can’t beat them join them” this statement is a satanic statement. You can’t beat them by joining them, or else you will remain under them. Choose to be different.

Joseph flee fornication when he knew that his destiny will be tied down.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it. It pays to live right. Its never too late to turn. Live ready it might be too late to get ready.

Our journey to greatness begins with Godliness

Love God: The hotter your love for Christ the hotter you become in life. Carry a heart for Christ. Those who have the injunctions of God and obey them are the ones who love God.

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.”

What is love? Love is simply the word that you receive, believe and obey.

Passion is the key word here. Love built this blog. Love provokes the release of supernatural manifestations in all spheres of life.

Love is making the kingdom of God your number 1 interest in life.

Get this straight: If the things of God does not move you, don’t expect the move of God to your direction. God is ever committed to the welfares of those who are committed to His interests.

Until you run after the kingdom agenda, supernatural additions is out of view.

 1 Kings 17:13 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.”

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

Your years of toiling is over. Our God is a God of additions. Serving God will not reduce you, serving God will increase you. Our God is a God of multiplication.

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.”

Things that others are running g after will be running after you when you plug into the frequency of love by hunting after souls both on the prayer alter and by reaching out to the lost through envagelism.

 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV
“I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.”

The interpretation of this scripture is that some people are praying for the lost to be saved while others are on the field compelling them into the kingdom. Both category of labourers have their rewards. You can do both as many believers are doing today.

I decrees – your settlement in every aspect of your life has finally come. God will settle you spiritually, physically, financially, and academically; in your health, career, job, business and marriage in the name of Jesus. No body here will remain unsettled in the name of Jesus.

I’m a Christian or am I?


 

Christianity is not a religion

The followers of Jesus were first called “Christian” in Antioch

Acts 11:26 KJV
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

literally means, “belonging to the party of Christ” or a “follower of christ”

Jesus is our perfect examples. A genuine christian shares the same gene and character with Jesus. Any character (fornication, adultery, stealing, corruption, etc) that can’t be found In Jesus is not permitted in you.

Also, Christianity is not a religion neither a philosophy; it does not belongs to any organization. It’s the release of the life of God into human vessels. It’s the manifestation of God’s power in man.

What the 3 proofs of a genuine believer

(1). The proof of love
(2). The proof of results
(3). The proof of faith

The proof of love – There is nothing mystical about love. Simply put love as the combination of the word that we received, believe and obey.

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.

Obedience is the cardinal mark of love. The devil can preach. It’s not about preaching it; it’s about doing it. Your being a walking bible who can reel off 100 memory verses per second isn’t a proof that the word of God has gained entrance into you.

Don’t receive God’s word in your head; receive it into your heart because your heart is the good ground (There is no amount of watering that would allow the word in your head or under your pillow to produce fruits).

 How can I love God?

Carry a heart for Christ – How can you say that you love someone if you don’t know His interest. God’s heartbeat is the life of the unsaved/lost. Until you allow this to become your priority on earth don’t expect to become a true believer.

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.

There is nothing theoretical about serving God. Serving God in truth and in deed requires practical. Until you demonstrate the commandments of the scripture results are farfetched.

James 1:22-25 KJV
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. [25] But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein , he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

(2). The force of results – Christianity with nothing to show is a sign of disobedience and God is ever ready to revenge all disobedience.

2 Corinthians 10:5-6 KJV
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Sickness, poverty, sweat, stagnation, frustration, darkness and mountains are all in the list of disobedience.

This is the reason many – though born again christian – are still groveling in poverty. They experience the same buffetings and intimidations that the world experience from the wicked one.

Listen to this: irrespective of your age, title, position and the numbers of years that you have spent in church if you don’t start taking responsibilities you will die as liabilities and God won’t come for your rescue.

Collect the blessings from your ‘parents’ by being responsible!

The force of faith – faith is what distinguishes between a winning and losing Christian.

If you love God you will trust Him. When God saw this dogged determination in these three Hebrew guys His heartbeat was like “I must save my children” Nothing works without faith.

Hebrews 11:6 KJV
But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Simply put faith as seeing the invincible and believing the impossible.

Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Move with the cloud, everybody is moving. Give up the impossibility syndrome.

Matthew 19:26 KJV
But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Greater than Jonas is here. Greater than John the Baptist is here.
John 14:12 KJV
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
