What partnership entails


We are not working for God we are working with God

According to webster’s dictionary defines a partner as “One that shares; one associated with another especially in action.”

Partnership occurs when two or more people come together in order to accomplish something that neither of them could do alone. The literal meaning indicates that each one has a specific part.

When partnership of vision takes place, something powerful happens. When people or groups of people partner together, it gives them the capability and the strength to do something that did not or could not exist before.

The spiritual principles of partnership are still the same. When we follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit and come together in partnership as He directs, both those who give and those who receive will be fully supplied through God’s great riches in Christ Jesus, and God’s work will get done. This is pleasing to God.

God is not a task master, He is a paymaster

It should be noted that when Jesus came to earth He was looking for partners. He could have sent angels to preach the gospel, but instead He asked for men and women to do it.

Jesus was God manifest in the flesh with “all the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwelling in Him,”yet the first thing He did after He was baptized was to look for men and women to help Him with His work.

He choosed 12 partners to help Him get started. They were soon joined by others.
And, yes Jesus needed their prayers. When Jesus was struggling in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane against the self-will of the human race and the crucifixion that was looming before Him, He asked His partners to watch and pray with Him.

Before Jesus ascended into heaven He commissioned His disciples saying, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:14-15)

One thing is certain from Jesus’ command. He was not looking for spectators. He wants all of His followers to participate.
Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.”(Mark 10:29-31)

We “walk worthily of God,” partnering with Christ to carry out His ministry in our daily lives, God faithfully works through us to bring healing and reconciliation to a broken and divided world. It is this very power of God at work through Christ embodied by us, that brings peace, joy, and fruitfulness to the world, rather than chaos, destruction, and death. Paul calls these experiences of enriched life the “Kingdom of God.”

 

While Addressing congregants in his church in Corinth, Paul says “the Kingdom of God depends not on talk but on power” (1 Corinthians 4:20).

They are speaking arrogantly to one another, rather than “walking worthily of God.”Paul plans to go to Corinth to “find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power” (1 Corinthians 4:19).

In other words, Paul will point out to them the obvious, chaotic results of this destructive power being unleashed in the community through their arrogant talk. Such behavior also blocks their experience of the peace and joy that characterizes the Kingdom of God.

When we partner faithfully with Jesus Christ when we “walk worthily of God” in our own daily lives. As we do, God works powerfully through our embodiment of Christ to bring healing and life to others with all sorts of colors and beauty, relieving all despair and hopelessness.

In all of these various moments, the Kingdom of God breaks into our world. We are in true partners with Christ in the Kingdom of God. What a “calling.” example of such calling is enumerated in (1king 17:13) In a time of famine, Elijah went to the home of a poor widow and asked her for a cup of water. As she was going to get it, he asked for a piece of bread too. The widow told him that she had only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil. She was just preparing to cook one last meal for herself and her son and then die.

God is not a task master, He is a paymaster

But Elijah told her, “Don’t be afraid. Bake me a little loaf of bread first, and there will still be enough food for you and your son. For this is what the Lord the God of Israel says, ‘There will always be plenty of flour and oil left in your containers until the time when the Lord sends rain and the crops grow again! ”Later, this same woman received her son back to life through Elijah’s prayer. The power of partnership with God.

This shows that whenever we are in good relationship with our God Impossibilities_ become POSSIBLE, MIRACLE happens, GOD PERFORM WONDER, CHAIN ARE BROKEN, THOSE IN BONDAGE WILL BE FREE. it’s said that whoever have a solid relationship with God will not suffer. Hallelujah!!!

Now let proceed to Top 10 Reasons Why Your Partnership with God is Critical for Living the Abundant Life:

STRENGTH:The nearer you are to God the greater your strength. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. (Isaiah 40:31)

POWER to CREATE and INVENT A closer relationship and consciousness with God, provides more power to create and invent because you draw upon the limitless resources of an unlimited God. His power works through us to glorify His name. (Romans 9:17) Halleluyah!!!

WISDOM. Your partnership, with the God of infinite wisdom, allows you to tap into His wisdom. He says if we lack wisdom to ask and He will give it to us generously. (James 1:5) the lord is good to us, Glory Honor and Adoration to his holy name.

HOPE. Realization of your divine partnership with God will enlarge your life and multiply your effectiveness with hope in Him. It will take away feelings of hopelessness, uncertainty and inability to overcome the storms of life. God’s plans are to give us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

SUCCESS & HAPPINESS. To have real success requires taking God into partnership and lining up your purpose and ambitions with His will. When your career and life does not run counter to God’s plan, but is in tune and contributes and benefits society, your cooperation will bring true happiness and success. In Him we live and move and have our being. (Acts 17:28)

LOVE Partnership with God requires walking in love and loving Him. God is a God of love and what is life without love? God tells us to do all things in love and that love never fails. We are told that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. (Romans 8:28)

NO FEAR. When you take God into full, complete partnership, you will not fear. Your life’s ventures cannot end in disappointment. With God we are led into abundant pastures, beside still waters, and He says we will fear no evil. (Psalm 23)

HONESTY. Taking God into partnership means that you must not only be honest, but that you must be robustly honest. You cannot lie, cheat, steal, or take advantage of anyone. It is impossible for God to lie. (Hebrews 6:18) Hallelujah!!

MIRACLES As God’s partner, He is able to perform miracles through us. Every great artist, writer, inventor, or healer that has done a miraculous thing, is conscious of the greater divine source of God working through them. God can make your tongue as the pen of a skilled writer. (Psalm 45:1), whenever we had accomplished, and the future achievement that has been made ours, ain’t our doing, instead it’s the reward of the relationship we have with our God. The Lord is wonderful to us Glory to him.

PEACE – When you take God into partnership, and you are conscious of doing His work, you have a life of peace and security. With God’s great light in your life you can feel safe and reassured that you will not lose your way. We are told the Lord will bless his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11) often when we pray we all seek for peace of mind (‘Ifokanbale’) it’s when we in good partnership with God, then He will Grant us our prayer. Can we see how marvelous our Lord is? Halleluyah!!!

I could go on and on. The fact is, with God as our partner we will have a new zest in life to attain the higher things that are worthwhile and of eternal value. Working in harmony with God allows us to inherit the best from the King of kings and enjoy a prosperous and abundant life.

I pray may our partnership with God bring us growing prosperities.

3 Gateways to Supernatural Healing


Every natural happening has its supernatural antecedent

What is supernatural?

Supernatural is the realm where God operates. It is the abnormal realm – the word ‘abnormal’ is coined from the combination of the word ‘above normal’. It is the realm where strange things happen such as healing of sicknesses as HIV, hypertension, toothache, SS, cancers, and raising of the dead.

Supernatural healing is not a drama nor fantasy. Supernatural healing is real!

3 gateways to supernatural healing

3 Gateways to Supernatural Healing

1). The word of God
2). Praise
4). Faith

(1). The Word of God:- The word of God are the black inks that you see in the Scripture. These are not just mere letters that form themselves into words. They are life, they are healing virtues more than anything else

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Heb.4:12

Listen: Until the light of healing in the word of God fizzles out the darkness of sickness in the life of  the-called-sicked supernatural healing is not in view.

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

“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.” – 1.In.1:5

Testimony

The great man of God Dr Kenneth Hagin was crippled at a time and billed for death. One day as he was studying the Scripture, then he saw the light in Mark.11:23. Light dawned on this man and struck him like a thunderbolt. Immediately he leaped on his feet and the darkness of cripple disappeared for free.

Recently, I had so much pain in my teeth and throat hardly I could swallow and bite. The pain was so excruciating that I could neither sleep at night nor enjoy my meals in the day. I googled and tried a lot of remedies but all was futile.
A day came that I was to minister to some group of people in a house fellowship and I told God before I left home “how do you want me to do your work with pains?” anchored on the light I got from Ex.23:25. The pains disappeared immediately. Throughout the ministration and beyond I felt no pains anymore.

Testimonies are faith boosters

(2). Praise :- Praise is one of the vital buttons you need to press if you must experience the Supernatural. It’s what to do when you don’t know what else to do. The battle is not yours. Be still, stand and hold your peace. Transfer all your battles to God by  getting into praise. God still works wonders in praise- we are going to see it  in 2chro20:22 and Acts.16:25

And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.” – 2.Chro.20:22

Who is like unto thee, O Lord , among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” – Ex.11:15

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. – Acts.16:25-26

Testimony

Recently, I was ministering on Praise and I told the congregation to write down five unwanted things in their lives, I wrote mine and we sang praises and danced with understanding on it. Right now all those things that I wrote have disappeared and I believe that others too have had their testimonies.

(3). Faith:– Faith is a moving force or doing force, faith gets you into motion. Faith without work is dead. Faith is not a cheap talk; it’s an hard work.

The fact that you are obeying scriptural instructions is the capital proof that you believe in the word of God. Faith can turn all ugly situations into beautiful.

Even death has no choice than to bows out to faith. If a situation as hopeless as the valley of dry bones could took a new shape, your dead child can still bounds back to life. Faith is not waiting, faith is acting inline with what you believe. Work out your miracle by doing what the word of God has prescribed, by moving with the cloud and declaring your believe boldly(Prov:18:21).

“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? [22] Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? [24] Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. [26] For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” – James.2:20-26

The days of miracle are not gone

Partnership: the covenant gateway to settlement


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

What is partnership?

Partnership is a cooperative relationship between people or group who agree to share responsibility for achieving some specific goals.

From this definition, some key words are to be noted.

Co operation which is based or agreement. Amos3:3

Responsibility which is based on maturity.
Before an agreement can be reached between 2 people, there must be trust and love in place and the responsibility part leaves you with doing what you have to do to get you desires result.

This means that every one has their roles to play to achieve a goal.

God has His role to play as much as we have ours, incomplete fulfilment on our own side places our settlement on a shaky ground. Remember that God can’t do our part and vice versa.

Settlement on the other hand is having everything regards our affairs attended to at all times..
Because God is not a user of man but a blessed of those who differently seek him.
Once you are in partner with a person, you always put everything in place to make your communication active.

How does partnership settles us?

  • Partnership with God places us under His care and guidance (PS 23:3).
  • It makes you a carrier of grace. Remember you are in accordance to Him.
  •  It makes you seek His kingdom (Matt 6:33).
  • It makes you serve under Him (Ex 23:25).

It is important to know that our love has to be in place before partnership can stand with God.
All partnership is based on love. once we love God we are sure to obey Him at all times and if you obey Him,there’s no way He will leave us unattended to at any time.

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.

 

 

 

The act of wisdom


Continues…

THE ACT OF DIVINE WISDOM

(1). It makes high flyers. The impartation of divine wisdom on Daniel made him stand out even in the present of king and also singled him out.

Daniel 2:26-30 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

(2).  It teaches man the truth via the holy spirit the spirit is the spirit of truth and can never mislead his Carrier.

1 Corinthians 2:12-13 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

(3). Divine wisdom is a source of happiness. A man of divine wisdom will always be at rest in the midst of trouble because there’s always divine instructions and guidance to tackle every situation per time.

Proverbs 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

Remember holy Spirit is the access to divine blessed.
Remain blessed.
May the Lord bless his word richly In our heart..AMEN.

The teaching may be lengthy but pls let’s try to read with full attention…i pray that the holy Spirit will give us deeper meaning.

The act of wisdom


The act or deeds of wisdom.

According to Oxford dictionary
Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom. –Coleridge.

Wisdom has been defined to be “the use of the best means for attaining the best ends. wisdom implies the union of high mental and moral excellence.

Let’s all note the word “use” wisdom is relevance when it is exercised both for our physical, financial, spiritual life… It covers every sphere of life including marital affairs.

Although the principle of how wisdom works is mysterious yet it is understood by the children of God produces evident and outstanding results when in place.

1 Corinthians 2:6-7 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Divine wisdom is way far beyond common sense or human knowledge because it produces specifically rare and amazing results.
It is important for us to note that this wisdom is made available to us both for edifying the body of Christ and to profit our lives.

1 Corinthians 12:6-8 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit.
The peculiarity of divine wisdom is that it has a source and for a person to experience it’s fullness you have to completely plug in to the source.
Who is the source?it is who because the source is alive now and forever and he is JESUS.

1 Corinthians 3:10-11 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
As long as you are connected,the manifestation of divine wisdom is inestimable.
The spirit of wisdom does not need human effort it only requires human dedication and commitment and also it is a part of the package of the holy Spirit.

The wisdom from above – divine wisdom


The wisdom from above

Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise. Synonyms: sagacity, sageness, intelligence, understanding, insight and foresight.

Wisdom is applied knowledge

Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it.

 

3 types of wisdom

 3-Types of Wisdom

(1) Intellectual wisdom
(2) Diabolical wisdom
(3) Divine wisdom

(1). Intellectual wisdom is a type of wisdom that is based on the knowledge of man. This kind of wisdom can be generalized based on theories. It’s prone to failure. It’s based on fact.

1 Corinthians 2:11-14 KJV
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. [13] Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. [14] But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned.”

(2) Diabolical wisdom is also known as devilish wisdom or demonic wisdom. It’s the wisdom from the devil.

This is the wisdom of going through short cut in life. Stealing, bribery & corruption and money ritual, etc are examples of diabolical wisdom. The end result is destruction.

Proverbs 10:22 KJV
The blessing of the Lord , it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

(3) Divine wisdom – Divine wisdom is the wisdom that comes from above. It’s anchored on established truth. Truth is superior to fact. While fact can fail; truth can never fail.

James 3:17 KJV
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”
