Virtues of praise


Continues…

Praise is one of the vital button to press that provokes the release of the supernatural.

(3). There is favour of God in praise – God’s favour colours your efforts and covers your errors. You can’t dance before the king and not be favoured with answered prayers and fulfilled expectations.

Matthew 14:6-7 KJV
“But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. [7] Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.”

(4). There is Fresh Oil in praise – fresh oil connotes fresh revelation. Revelation equals manifestation. You can’t make things happen in life until it’s revealed unto you. Praise is your access is divine ideas.

You don’t allow the oil in your vehicle to go stale before you change it. Or do you? Many believers – even pastors – are operating on stale oil.

The kind of praise that I’m talking about is a praise lifestyle. Everyday is the Lord’s day. If you wait for something spectacular to happen before you praise Him, you will wait forever.

Psalm 92:10 KJV
“But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.”

(5). There is glory of God in praise.

1 Chronicles 16:35 KJV
“And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.”

A call to serve God isn’t a call into sufferings and buffetings; it’s a call into glorification.

Romans 8:29-30 KJV
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. [30] 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.”

Because I believe that you will praise God, an end has come and to every issue of shame and reproach in all areas of your life. Amen.ūüôŹ

Christianity is a mockery without dignity. Dignity and honour are the hallmarks of a genuine believer.

1 Peter 2:9 KJV
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

However, it’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful. Wear the garment of¬† praise tonight and praise God for the joy that you have today and see wonders manifesting on every side of your life.

Our understanding makes us to command outstanding results, praise God with understanding (I mean do it with understanding) and watch out for outstanding results in all aspects of your life.

 

 

 

 

Virtues of praise


What are the virtues of praise?

(a) There is presence of God in praise – You don’t make things happen in life. It’s God’s presence that make them come to be. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

It takes the presence of God to break out of the prison door of your life.

Acts 16:25-26 KJV
“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. [26] And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”

Somebody is walking out of the prison door.

As you put on the garment of praise today and dance before the king, this week strange things will happen.

What your efforts can’t earned you in 100years to come, God will give you within forty eight hours. Within 3days a cup bearer became a governor.

(b). There is increase in praise – Get this straight: Multiplication is a function of appreciation.

Psalm 67:5-6 KJV
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [6] Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

The reason many are few in life is because they keep a heart filled with grumblings and complains. Murmurings will further mess up your situation while complains will complicate your matters.

Many – though born-again Christians- have turned themselves into prayer projects; they got bitter with God and magnified their problems out of proportion.

Most things called prayers are murmurings. If you can turn all bitterness into praise you will be manifesting the miraculous on every side.

If you say you have no shoes; have you ever met a man with no legs before? If you don’t thank God for that one room apartment that is where you will die.

If you say you have no job; what if your case were mental case will you be able to go to school? The fact that you are a potential candidate for employment requires praise.

This is the reason many are few in life.

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.”

To be continued…

 

 

Living in Dignity


Dignity is the hallmark of a genuine believer

Dignity is the hallmark of a winning believer. The call into service isn’t a call into a life bombarded with sufferings and regrets – I have never regret serving God for once in my life. God isn’t calling us to serve Him in order to punish us whereas He is calling us to serve Him in order to ‘Polish’ us.

Dignity and honour are the cardinal marks of a winning believer.

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” Pet.2:9.

You see, every authentic believer is a child of distinction, he is a special kind of breed; he is marked out (exempted) from the corruption of darkness and translated into the illumination of light.

Excellence is the capital proof of obedience. An excellent spirit found in Daniel (the three Hebrew guys are better than the magicians and astrologers ten times. Daniel served God via prayer to the point that the king had no choice than bow and called him a god’s name, Belshazzar).

“And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realms.” Dan.1:20.

Get this straight: a call to serve God isn’t a call to live unaccomplished, unfulfilled (you’re not expected to die the way ordinary men die).

It’s a call to be a partaker of a life with glory and virtue. A call to live an enviable life. We’re not an entity of pity; we are an entity of envy. Our destiny is an envious destiny, more than anything else.

“For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and a great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” Gen.26:14.

Only if you can carry this mentality that serving God guarantees you an enviable destiny, nobody will be able to ask you again that “where is your God?” Every of the question mark lurking around your life will be turned into exclamation mark in the name of Jesus.

We are predestined for glorification.

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the first born among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” Rom.8:29-30

In conclusion, serving God is what turns an ordinary man into an extraordinary man. It makes a nonentity to become a celebrity (The disciples of Jesus were unlearned people, but Peter preached in one day and over 3000 souls were converted at the spot). Hmmm! Thank you Jesus.

 

 

 

The 5 virtues of fasting


A picture of food which is used to break fasting

Fasting is not an advice neither an admonition.

Fasting is a commandment.

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

In the light of the above scripture, it is ‘When’ not ‘if’ you fast which means there is a particular time you must fast.

And, obedience is the master key to all opened doors of blessings (Deu.28:1-3).

“And it come to pass, if thou shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do his commandments which I command thee this day, that the lord thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth. ” Deu.28:1

Fasting means fastening your body in order to edify your spirit. It is giving strength to your inner man.

What are the 5 virtues of fasting?

1). Revelation – Fasting is the gateway to an outbreak of revelation. And, revelation precedes manifestation. Nothing come to be outside revelation.

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

2).Supernatural restoration – Fasting restores supernaturally every stolen and lost item. The thief ( devil) specializes in stealing people’s glorious destinies (Jn.10:10).

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundation of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach. The restorer of the path to dwell in.” Is.58:12.

3).Illumination – Fasting sparks off light over issue of life. When light is shed over an issue, the darkness around it disappears.

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the lord shall be thy rearward.” Is.58:8

4).Liberation Р Fasting is the key to liberty from every shackles of the enemy. It is the pathway to freedom from satanic oppressions. It breaks bad habit as stealing, corruption, lying, lesbianism, etc.

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

5). Power and Authority – Fasting confers or vested in us the authority over the affairs of life. Both positive and negative forces in all realms of existence are bound to answer at our commands due to our royal status.

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the lord hath spoken it.” Is.58:14

Jesus was just like anyone else in the land until He  went on 40 days fasting and prayer. But on his return, signs and wonders erupted.

His authority and power switched level. People began to exclaim  What manner of man is this, that even the wind and sea obey him!  We have seen strange things today!

But the man marvelled, saying, what manner of man is this, that even the sea and wind obey him! ” Mat.8:27

There some evil forces that have been sitting on people’s destinies that can only be unseated by engaging in fasting and prayer.

Enter into fast and collect your birthrights being withhold by the wicked.

 

 

 

Multiplication is a function of appreciation (Praise Virtues)


Praise is where God live. If you want to seek God, pray. If you want see God, praise him. “But thou art holy, o thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” PS.22:3

Praise lifestyle, I can't praise God and be small

Your fewness and smallness in life is traceable to a disease called lack of praise. “Out of them shall proceed thanksgiving the voice of them that make merry, i will multiply them they shall shall never be small, i will also glorify them they shall never be few.” Jer.30:19.

Those who have viewed this blog this month are double of last month viewers. Not only that, I have never known any better last year in my life ever since I have been living a praise lifestyle.

Nothing dies in your hand of a praise warrior. The reason why many Christians have not be seen the manifestations of God’s presence in there life, is because they have not added praise to their efforts.

Praise is the gateway to supernatural multiplication. Appreciation equals multiplication. Nothing goes down in praise. “Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.” PS.67:6.

What are the virtues of praise?

Virtues of praise are presence of God, favour of God, divine intervention, supernatural multiplication and divine ideas

I). There is presence of God in praise – There is no natural man that can makes things happened in life, but God’s presence makes them come to be. “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a earth quake, so that the foundation of the prisons were shaken: and immediately all the doors opened, and everyone band loosed.”¬† Acts.16:25-26. When God’s presence is unleashed, the supernatural sparks off and strange things happened. As you praise God, as this month is ending, strange things will manifest in every aspect of your life.

II). There is favour of God in praise – The reason why many people have not been experiencing supernatural favour in their life is that they always think it was their power that made things came to be, they quickly forgot the one behind it. “And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, ¬†and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou will, and I will give it thee.” Marks. 6:22. Praise facilitates answered prayers. Favour colours your efforts and covers your errors. As you put on the garment of praise, In coming new month, you will sing a new song. Those who don’t know you will help you.

Revealing the virtue of praise

III). Praise warfare provokes the release of divine intervention in the battles of life – Praise warfare is the pathway to where all our battles in life are transfered to God. “And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Seir; which were come against Judah and they were smitten.” 2.Chr.20:22.¬†As you enter into praise, you will become a spectator in your own battle, all your enemies who ganged up against you will help kill each other.

IV). supernatural multiplication is a function of appreciation – Nothing goes down praising God. Family, Business, career, academics, etc. Nothing remains worse giving thanks. This was the secret behind Jesus’ miracles during his earthly ministry. Whenever he was confronted with seemingly impossible situations, he gave thanks and the supernatural erupted. “And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down: and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.”¬†Jn.6:11.

V). Praise unleashes divine ideas – Jesus was never stranded of what to do during his earthly ministry. When they needed to feed five thousands people, he knew what to do, when they needed wine, he knew what to do. “And he said this to prove him: for he himself knew what to do.” ¬†Jn.6:6.¬†You don’t allow the oil in your car engine to go stale before you change it, there is fresh oil which means fresh revelation, unleashed each time you engage in a praise lifestyle. And, every manifestation in every sphere of existence are products of revelations. You don’t make things come to be outside what God has entrusted to you. “But my horn shall thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” PS.92:10. You won’t get to a point where you will no longer know what to do in life.
