Violent Faith


From the days of the Patriarchy to the present, all those who have reigned in life have been men and women of violent faith. Faith that tears the roof off will always get God’s attention (See Luke.5:17-26).

Faith is not a gentle thing; rather, it’s a violent thing. To get God’s attention, some form of violence is required. In Luke.5, some men were bringing a paralytic man to Jesus, convinced that if they got him to Jesus, he would be healed. However, there was such a large crowd at the entrance that they were unable to enter where Jesus was. To get to Jesus, they ripped the roof off the building (Violence).

“And the kingdom of God has suffered violence from the days of John the Baptist until now, and the violent have taken it by force (paraphrased).” –Mathew. 11:12

You’re far too gentle for the victory you seek. Jesus is the lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be a lion’s brother unless you actually are one. Consider a lion: he is always calm. A lion’s eyes are always red, indicating violence. There are no fearful lions, and even his posture frightens the devil. You can’t have a lion share unless you first have a lionheart.


You don’t deserve what you don’t desire.
Faith is not a passive state; it is an action – a doing or a moving force. It is acting in accordance with your beliefs. The woman with the blood issue did not pray, but instead reasoned within herself that “if she touches Jesus’ garment, she will be made whole.” Her blood was stanched as she moved to touch the garment right away. Faith is not a platitude; it is a labour of love. Without work, faith dies (James.2:20). Obedience comes from faith. In other words, unwavering adherence to scriptural instructions.

There are no professors at Pilot’s School, but there are instructors. People do not fly based on their knowledge, but rather on their ability to follow instructions. Connect to the frequency of scriptural instructions to get onboard for a flight. It’s impossible to be dedicated and not be decorated. Your level of obedience today determines your future. You’ll be counted among the world’s highfliers if you follow God’s commandments as a way of life.


The devil is not a gentleman; he will always oppose the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. As a result, God’s word will appear to be a forgery. What happens in life? We’re in a battle with the devil to reclaim our birthright. By being responsible, you can obtain your birthright from your parent (God). Life is a battleground. And the battle is primarily a mental one. The target of the attack is your mind. If you fail there, you will fail in reality. Your mind has the power to either make or break you (See, Ephesians 6:12; John 10:10).

Friend, embrace the truth and shake the dust off your feet. Follow, like, comment, and share. Blessings and love.

Hindrances to living in dominion


Hindrances to living in dominion
Gal.4:7 says, Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

So what are the things that can hinder us, disturb us from being a son?

God’s purpose for man is for him to live a life of dominion. God wants man to be in charge. God commanded man to live a life of dominion at the beginning, but when man fell, he lost the power to live in dominion.

This power to live a life of dominion was restored back to the man when Jesus died in man’s place on the cross, buried, and resurrected. The Lord Jesus Christ has paid the price and paved the way for us to dominate.

The question now is, why are believers not dominating?

Despite the sacrifice of Jesus, many of us are still being oppressed, harassed, and not occupying our place in destiny.

We shall be looking at some of the hindrances to dominion.

We will look at some things that are actually hindering us from dominating.

Here are some few reasons.

  • Disobedience

This is to refuse to comply with or follow the laid down rules. As citizens of the heavenly kingdom, we are to enforce the will of God on earth. (Philippians 3:20).

God set the rules, patterns or standards, we are to follow them. If we will not follow His rules by disobeying them, how do we expect Him to give us dominion? It is God who sets up kings and removes kings.

Just like you cannot keep disrespecting your boss in the office and expect a promotion, you cannot live against God’s word and be empowered to live in dominion. Deuteronomy 28:1. Obedience is a vital key to living a dominion life. 2 Corinthians10:6.

This scripture is saying; fulfil your obedience to God and get uncontestable dominion.

  • Lack of knowledge

Hosea 4:6. Knowledge is very vital if we want to live a life of dominion. When the use of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. It is the lack of knowledge that will make a prince walk on foot while the servant is riding on a horse.

Knowledge is needed for us to know those things that have been freely given to us in Christ Jesus. If a child does not know he is an heir to a great property, another person will take over it.

True knowledge comes from consistency, studying, and the meditation of the word of God. Galatians 4:1-7.

  • Lack of violence

Violence is crucial in the school of dominion. For us to rule, we must be violent. How do you expect to rule over violent spirits, violent situations, violent adversaries, if you are not violent (Matthew 11:12)?

Even the Bible said right from the day of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent shall take it by force.

We must be violent in the place of prayer, and lawful physical action birthed by faith. As a believer, we are to dominate everywhere; in politics, business, academics, in our offices, on that contract, in our marriages, etc.

We have examples of people that dominated even in strange places; like Mordecai, Daniel, Joseph, etc. It is your right as a believer in Christ Jesus to dominate. From today receive the grace for spiritual violence and go dominate in Jesus’ name.

  • Fear

Many of us are where we are because we are afraid to take a bold step; in ministries, politics, business, academics, careers and the likes. Israel was afraid of the giant in the land, and they wasted good forty years. Fear is highly detestable in this kingdom. Revelations 21:8.

Among many others are unbelieve.

  • Sin

Judah lost his signet, sceptre to immorality, just like many children of God are losing their authority to sin. Genesis 38:7-18, Genesis 49:10. Sin is deadly; it cripples and makes people impotent spiritually.

For a child of God to live in dominion, he must have a right standing with God. His garment must always be white. Ecclesiastes 9:8. You can only exercise your dominion when your obedience to God is complete. 2 Corinthians 10:6

In conclusion, God has pronounced His blessings on His children; these blessings include living in dominion.

It is our responsibility to do what is needed and begin to enjoy what God had freely given to us.

I pray the Lord will help us to dominate in every aspect of our life.

As that will be all for today.

I pray the Lord will give us deep meaning of His word in Jesus’ name.
