Understanding Your World


(1) Your World is a Word Framed World

“Through faith we understand the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” – Hebrews.11:3

Back to creation (Gen 1), when God wanted to create the earth, He spoke. When He saw darkness, He didn’t cry, but He spoke light to existence. He spoke all things into existence. God himself is the word, the word is light and life (John.1). It’s “speaks unto to this mountain”, not to cry or push the mountain (Mark.11:23). The bible also says, You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. – Job.22:28; World English Bible.

Anything you speak has the power to create. That is why the bible says, For I will give you a mouth (mouth-gift) and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. – Luke.21:15. Tongue fired faith is the gateway to victory. Your tongue is not only meant for eating and talking, but for bold declaration. David used his mouth gift and defeated Goliath. Use your mouth gift.

Don’t say before the angels that it’s an error because angels are at your service bringing whatever you say – positive or negative – to reality. Everybody has an angel. What you don’t want, you don’t say. “Life and death are in the power of the tongues.” – Prov.18:21.

(2) The Market Place (Mathew.20:3-16)

The world is a temporal market place. Only those engage in a business-like approach in life get profits. If you don’t do business with life, you’ll run bankrupt. Nobody lives here forever, the scripture says, Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going. – Ecc.9:10.

He went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and said unto them, You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. So they went. Again He went out about the sixth and ninth hour and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour He went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘why have you been standing here idle all day.’ – Mathew.20:3-6

We are all in the market called life. Considering the above scripture, Jesus hates idleness. What you don’t work, won’t work. Things only work for workers. You don’t need a powerful Job to make it in life, just be a strong spirit man or woman, whatever you do, shall prosper (Ecc.9:10). Even if you were selling pepper on the street, Supernatural prosperity would locate you.

(3) Your World Lies in a Pole of Wickedness (1. John. 5:19).

In 1 John.5:19; KJV,

And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

The world lies in a negative pole of wickedness – a magnetic field of wickedness. There are evil beasts in the wilderness called life. From this negative pole of evil sickness, disease, failure (poverty), and all kinds of demonic bastardizations emanate.

The covenant of obedience to scriptural commandments is the only way to survive (Ez.34:25). The devil is no respecter of colour, race, age; eloquent grammar, title and position notwithstanding. Anyone can become a victim, expect the covenant practitioners. Therefore, covenant practice is your bailout.

Evil Machinations Can Manipulate Your World for a Negative Result.

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

Good news. Serving God puts you far above all powers and principalities and makes you operate on a wavelength with God (in a class of gods). You’re far above and He that comes from above is above all (John.3:31). God comes from above, the devil comes from beneath. You are gods (Psalm.82:6). You’re above all powers.

(4) Your World is a Battlefield.

Life is a battlefield. What is going on in life is that we are fighting with the devil in order to collect our birthright. The devil is not a gentleman, and faith is not gentle stuff. Faith demands violence to overcome. Only a roof tearing faith prevails (Mark.2:4). And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. – Mathew.11:12.

To get a lion’s share, you must have a lionheart. Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be Lion’s brother, except you’re one. Picture Lions. They are always composed. Have you ever seen an anxious Lion? (Even your postures should send fear to the devil).

There is a battle going on between:

  • God and the devil
  • Good and evil
  • Light and darkness
  • Success and failure
  • Life and death
  • Abundance and hunger

In John.10:10; KJV.,

“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.”

MIND

Your mind is the battleground. Your thinking faculty can either make or break you. Your mind is the devil’s object of attack. That’s where you fight and win all the battles of life. If you lose there, you lose in reality. Therefore, discipline your thoughts. Guard the loins of your heart. Cast down all high logics, traditions and idiosyncrasies that exalt themselves against the knowledge of Christ by bringing every thought to captivity (2.Cor.10:4-5; Prov.4:23).

Get this straight: You can’t think of failure and arrive at success. It’s poverty thoughts that make poverty. Defeatist thoughts make a defeat.

That is why the bible says: Fight the good fight of faith (1Tim.6:12). Faith is like a weapon you can handle to quench every fiery dart of the wicked (Eph.6:16).

In Summary,

  • Your world is a word framed world.
  • The world is a market.
  • The world lies in a magnetic field of wickedness.
  • The world is a battlefield. You fight and win the battles in your mind.

Scriptural perspective about anger


Scriptural perspective

Anger breeds conflicts, fights and wars; creates an atmosphere of confusion and causes devastation.

What does the scripture says about anger?

Anger is a function of foolishness. When a wise man speaks, you will quickly identify by his word. Take for instance, Jesus was sitting among the elites teaching them in wisdom and they were all amazed. His wisdom could be easily perceived by His word.

Ecclesiastes 7:9 KJV
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

A word can heal a wound or tear down a fellow. Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov.18:21).

Anger is a sin – James 1:19-20 KJV
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: [20] For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

Sin ruptured the link between men and God – the destiny of men became fractured because of sin. As life is a choice, as Godliness is a choice, anger is a choice more than anything. Your agreement to a sinful act is required before its full manifestation. Anger can erodes our dignity in Christ. Daniel made a choice and he ruled with kings and same thing happened to Joseph.

A powerful force behind anger is the spirit of disobedience and to conquer the spirit of disobedience the spirit of obedience is required. One of the spirits is from above while the other came from beneath. He that is above is above all (Jn.3:31).

Ephesians 2:2 KJV
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:

Ezekiel 36:27 KJV
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 .

Sin instills fear while righteousness establishes confidence and boldness. Adam sinned and his first uttered statement was “I am afraid”. Many believers are ruled by fear today due to unrighteousness and disobedience.

Proverbs 28:1 KJV
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
