CHRIST BECAME THE CURSE FOR US

Christ’s journey to the cross, grave, hell and back was not by accident. It was carefully thought out with every aspect of our salvation well considered.

Christ fulfilled all righteousness to make us bona-fide heirs to the promise God made to Abraham. He became a curse so that those of us once seen as ‘a curse’ can partake of the blessings of Abraham through faith. Halleluyah.

If you think you’ve been forsaken by our heavenly Father because of situations you find yourselves, think again. Remember he is the Master Planner and all is going to ultimately work out for our good.

I pray that this season of resurrection will remind you of how Jesus loves you deeply.

Who could ever divorce us from the endless love of God’s Anointed One? Absolutely no one! For nothing in the universe has the power to diminish his love toward us. Troubles, pressures, and problems are unable to come between us and heaven’s love. What about persecutions, deprivations, dangers, and death threats? No, for they are all impotent to hinder omnipotent love,

Romans 8:35 TPT

VICTORY THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD

TEXT: 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

2 Corinthians 10: 3- 5

I’ll take the first paragraph to summarize the whole message today. Having the upper hand in spiritual warfare (since we are in constant conflict with negating powers in our earthly race), is a product of having a deep revelation of who God truly is.

The battle is all about God’s chosen creation not knowing for themselves, who God is and who they are in Christ. The devil is quite aware that your understanding Yahweh, puts him at a loss. He knows too well this fact, that armed with our testimony of God through Christ, we over power him (Revelation 12:11a ). This is why the devil is fighting tooth and nail so we do no catch that revelation.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.

Revelation 12:11a

The blood and the word. The blood for every confessed believer is a very powerful weapon and shield and so are the words of our testimony of faith.

WHAT IS YOUR TESTIMONY?

We are looking at the knowledge of God and its efficacy in having this knowledge. If overcoming the devil entails words of testimony, then it will do well to understand what a testimony is in this context.

“Sharing (or giving) a testimony” in Christianity is telling someone else about your relationship with God. Christian believers would likely define testimony by the public profession of their faith journey and relationship with God.” -Linda Gilden

The Merriam Webster dictionary explains TESTIMONY as a public profession of religious experience; an open acknowledgement; a firsthand authentication of a fact. All this sums up to one thing – KNOWLEDGE.

The testimony of a believer is your understanding and profession of who God is and who you are in Him. In a testimony is a relationship established and acknowledged. It is this profession that scares the devil no little bit.

Your testimony should therefore be a clear statement of

1. Your life before redemption

“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience.”

Ephesians 2: 1-2

You alone can tell how far gone you were before you saw the Light of God. There should be a very personal touch to this part of your testimony statement.

2. How you were saved by Christ. Your moment of encounter

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”

John 5: 24

Go ahead to meditate on the process our Lord and savior took to redeem mankind to God. See 1John 5: 10 – 11

“He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

1 John 5: 10- 11

3. Your journey, knowledge of and relationship with God at the time of profession.

You shine a light on the God who has saved you for others to see and be saved and you overcome the devil by the words of your testimony. Do good to have yours written and memorized. It will come in handy in a day of affliction.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHO GOD REALLY IS?

I like the emphasis on who God is as written in Isaiah

Doubtless You are our Father, Though Abraham was ignorant of us, And Israel does not acknowledge us. You, O Lord , are our Father; Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.

Isaiah 63:16

The word ‘DOUBTLESS’ comes with a strong conviction and the repetition in the same verse, futher buttresses this. God is our Father and most importantly and dangerously to the kingdom of the adversary, He is our REDEEMER.

Conclusively,

God is your Father, He has been your Redeemer since everlasting. There is power in knowing that only God can save and redeem you out of darkness. You carry power when you have a testimony of the most powerful.

Let me end with this, since you are created in the image and likeness of God, you carry his DNA and by your testimony and the blood, no power can defeat you.

SUDDEN CELEBRATION

Judy Jacobs ‘Days of Elijah’

TEXT 1: 2 Kings Chapters 6 & 7
KEY VERSE: “Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the LORD: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’ ””
‭‭II Kings‬ ‭7:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

TEXT 2: “When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.””
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭126:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

This is our season of sudden celebration. The time when God is set to do a 180 degrees turnaround of unfavourable situation in your life …. Halleluyah.

Celebration in my own lay term, means to rejoice over a pleasant happening. To have it suddenly means an unexpected disruption of that unfavourable situation.


2020 has been a great year for some people but then we cannot deny that it has been somewhat a tough year for many others too. We admit that the Lord our God has been faithful to us and this is why in the midst of casting downs we declare a lifting.

Many of you experienced various levels of ‘casting downs’ or unfavourable conditions during this lockdown year. For some, theirs have been a long travail in hopelessness.

Woman with the issue of blood

What have you experienced or still experiencing, that has put you in a state of hopelessness? Today I have come to announce to you that your season of sudden celebration has come. Receive it in the mighty name of Jesus.

The bible on numerous accounts has shown the Lord turning around the sufferings of his people suddenly and unexpected. Our key text shows how Samaria being besieged by the enemy, suffered famine until they had to eat their kids to survive. What could be more hopeless than that? Even the king who was to be their protector had given up hope in God(See 2Kings 6:27. He had concluded that the Lord could not help them
Other references of state of hopelessness that received a sudden turnaround includes

  1. The Jews in the book of Esther who being faced with annihilation by the Persians experienced a divine turnaround of the situation to the extent that they became VIP citizens. They still celebrate that victory till this day.
  2. The Israelites in the middle of the Red Sea and Pharaoh. Their victory song was recorded after the word came forth to move forward and the parting of the sea.
  3. The woman in the issue of blood travailed for 12 years in that condition. Her suffering seized after her encounter with Jesus. Read the account in Mark 5:25-34 And many more.


I do not want to detail the types of hopeless situation that may be confronting you today, I want to speak and reassure you of the infallible power of the most high God to change any unpleasant situation this season.

We have spoken so much on faith. We are quite aware that faith moves mountains. Encouragement from the word tells us to have faith and see wonders. Perhaps, many have exercised faith so big but no results. This is not to say God isn’t working through your faith. He could perhaps expect you to try WORKS instead.

The lepers announce the good news

This is where I am going to. Faith without work is dead (James 2:26). I have but one word for you today. IF YOU MUST EXPERIENCE SUDDEN CELEBRATION, YOU MUST TAKE A STEP OF FAITH. That step of faith is seen throughout the whole references I have given. In simple words, be prepared to take risks like they did. Risk takers like the lepers in 2 Kings chapter 7 were the first to enjoy the sudden turnaround.

You may have been looked down upon and rejected just like the lepers and the woman with the issue of blood were, take the plunge because it is your season of celebration. The Lord is set to confound your adversaries like he did Haman and Pharaoh.

Let’s take 2 prayer points.

  1. It is my season of celebration, I will not miss it in the mighty name of Jesus.
  2. I receive strength and courage to take Holyspirit inspired steps towards my turnaround.

THE POWER OF CHOICES

John Waller ‘As for me and my house’

Text 1: Deuteronomy 28:1-68

“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. …

Text 2: Psalms 1:1-3

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Praise God for the month of ABUNDANCE.
This morning we will be looking at:

  1. Implication of the choices we make

2. How to discern choices in the face of obscurity

3. How to make the right choices and decisions.

Making choices

IMPLICATION OF THE CHOICES WE MAKE

We should be familiar with common prose, ‘the choices you make can either make or mar you’. This is true as it was apparent in the lives of some figures from the Bible we will set as reference for this topic.

We are looking at ways to enjoy great grace in this season of abundance, so it is pertinent, that we understand the rules of engagement with our Father in heaven, who owns the cattle over a thousand hills.

We’ll pick a couple of references from the scriptures.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Consider King David the son of Jesse. His sin of adultery and murder was a product of a bad choice. What bad choice did he make? Eating the bread of IDLENESS. David had a choice to join the army of Israel in the battle field but he chose to relax at home. The devil filled his thoughts with lust and the result of idleness, was the death that swept through his household. You want to enjoy abundant prosperity, you want to avert the wages of sin? ARE YOU EATING THE BREAD OF IDLENESS?

Our second item is Rehoboam the son of Solomon and grandson of David. 1Kings 12:1-17 gives an account of how he despised the counsel of the elders and followed that of the younger men that was evil. The people of Israel revolted against him and till this day, the house of David has not been one because of it. He lost territory because of evil counsel. Remember our second anchor text? If you want to live a life of abundance, do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly


HOW TO DISCERN CHOICES IN THE FACE OF OBSCURITY

Sometimes, the situation we find ourselves can put us on a spot as to what choices are right or wrong for the season. You could receive an offer of a huge amount of money from one who wants you to compromise your faith, at a point of nothingness and then it is easy for you to conclude that the Lord remembered to bless you. Not all blessings are from God. Only His blessings make rich and add no sorrow to it. (Proverbs 10:22).

The above scripture is pivotal to right decision making. Whenever you are at a crossroad on what choices to make, ensure you tick these checkboxes

1.Will this choice make me an enemy or a friend to God? You have to be sure that God’s standards in the word are not compromised by the choices we make.

2. You are a child of God and you carry his spirit. Are you at peace in the spirit over your choice? The Spirit of God nudges every child of God, we are just so into ourselves that we do not hear Him. Connecting to God through the Spirit puts us on the expressway of knowing the mind of God. If you want to make the right choices, eat Spirit food to stay connected always. Fast pray and read the word.

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

John 16:13

3. Seek godly counsel. It is important to have people around you who you are confident will give you counsel as if from the mouth of God himself. (See….Psalms 1:1-3)

HOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES AND DECISIONS

If you noticed, this point and the previous look similar. It is important to note that it sure is one thing to discern the right or wrong choice and it is another thing to do the right thing.

A lot of people even after knowing what path to take, find it very difficult to follow through on it. A number of factors are a culprit in this regard.

  1. The spirit of disobedience at work
  2. Forces assigned to cause one to make errors.

We will be praying along these 2 lines now and constantly too.

Saul lost grace as a result of disobedience. May we not make errors like Paul (then Saul) who thought he was killing Christians to please God. God caused Pharaoh to suffer in the hands of that same spirit of error.

I pray in the name of Jesus, we will make good choices and we will fulfill purpose in life. Amen

PRAISE YOUR WAY THROUGH

I’m being led in the direction of praise this morning.

Sometimes the battles we fight in the spirit are easily won through PRAISE. We need to be sensitive to the Spirit to understand when to employ the weapon of praise. Paul and Silas understood the power of praise. Halleluyah glory to God.

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 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

In this month of moving forward, praise your way through.

Elshaddai by Spirit of Praise Team ft. Benjamin Dube

I’ll say a few prayers.

  1. Any power assigned to disarm me, by taking away the sound of praise from my lips be disgraced in the name of Jesus.
  2. Just like the prison gates could not contain praising Paul and Silas, every shackle of the enemy assigned to stop us from moving forward is broken through our praise in Jesus mighty name.
  3. Songs of praise will fill our homes and it will fill our hearts.
  4. We will not struggle in any battle of life. In the name of Jesus, we will praise our way through.
  5. Thank you sweet Holyspirit for ministering to our spirits in songs. We will never be short of songs of praise in Jesus mighty name.

AMEN

Let God lead

‘Breathe’ by Dunsin Oyekan

When God leads, there is an assurance of peace. What we must crave for as warriors is to have the Lord of Hosts with us at all times.

Exodus 33:14 tells of how rest comes with God’s presence.
And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

See Psalms 23:2b
He leads me beside the still waters.’ When God leads, there is an assurance of peace and an affirmation of righteousness.

There is no mistake in the scripture that says…. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33. It is okay to go after the things for the belly but it is most important to go after God himself. When you hold on to God and all that pertains to the kingdom, every other thing will fall in place and that’s where you’ll find PEACE.

SEEK HIS PRESENCE NOW There is more of God in us to be revealed and until we know him and follow him closely, we will walk in total darkness. To fulfil purpose on earth we need to encounter God on a very personal level.

God leads on a pathway of life

I pray for somebody today, this month, you will see God clearer and understand His mind concerning you.

WELCOME TO OUR MONTH OF DIVINE ENCOUNTER

And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection).

Isaiah 4:5

Prepare for the encounter

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

Acts 2:16-18

October will see you soaring on a whole new level of spirituality to the glory of Yahweh in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS

It is a blessed new day people of God, glory be to His holy name… halleluyah!!! So today I am led towards the direction of the mystery of righteousness personified in Christ Jesus. Then this song from the days pops into my head, ‘I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS, SIN HAS NO POWER OVER ME’. I am certain this beautiful song was adopted from the scripture in 2Corinthians 5:21. We are who we are in Christ today because Jesus already paid the price, having become sin for us even though He was without sin.

There is something about the righteousness of Christ that we connect to and are justified by, this day. Truly there isn’t any controversy about how awesome the mystery of godliness is.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. I Timothy 3:16 NKJV

Christ our righteousness is God;
1. MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH
The opening verse of John tell us the Word was right there at the beginning and that the Word was God (John 1:1). It tells us how in all humility and love like no other, this Word became flesh, born of a woman with men to dwell to demystify the power of righteousness to mortals. If He in flesh could live without sin, then we can trade our sin for his righteousness at the foot of the cross and become the righteousness of God in Christ, full of grace and truth.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1‭, ‬14 NKJV

2. JUSTIFIED BY THE SPIRIT

In Bildad’s conversation with Job, he asked a question in the fouth verse of the twenty fifth chapter, ‘can a man be justified by God or how can one born of a woman be clean?’ Jesus was one of a few before his crucifixion, justified by God and even more so than others by evidence of a voice and the symbol of the Spirit of God.

When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:16‭-‬17 NKJV

The awesomeness of God’s love was revealed in the righteousness of His son in whom all fullness dwell, through whom we have received reconciliation to God the father and have been declared holy and blameless. Some mysteries are just too beautiful when you grab the insight to unravel– glory!

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight-Colossians 1:19‭-‬22 NKJV

3. SEEN BY ANGELS
In the wake of His victory over death on the third day, Angels heralded the risen Christ. (Matthew 28:1-7). They were the first to publish the historic event that would change the course of mankind for eternity. Yes, the angels have been noted in time past to witness important events and this stood to be one of the greatest of the great. They witnessed and ministered to God who became flesh, at his rising. How humbling that must have been for them, now they understand how much the Father loves us, impressing on them to minister even more to us, from a place of the love witnessed.

4. PREACHED AMONG THE GENTILES

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. Acts 10:34‭-‬35 NKJV

Through Jesus, peace and salvation reaches everyone who believes. The power of God has been preached as the gospel to everyone.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16 NKJV

Christ’s righteousness is received by all and sundry who only believe.

5. BELIEVED ON IN THE WORLD
Christ our righteousness, is a mystery kept secret since the world began and is now manifested by prophetic scriptures made known in all nations according to God’s command for obedience to faith. (Romans 16:25-27).

The gospel is said to have brought and is still bringing forth fruits to this day. Nations have come to the knowledge of Christ our righteousness.

which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth; Colossians 1:6 NKJV

6. RECIEVED UP IN GLORY
Jesus ascended to glory Halleluyah!!!

Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. Luke 24:51 NKJV

Christ was seen, taken up in glory and at that point he was worshiped. God Himself has exalted Christ for His obedience unto a death of shame on the cross, bearing our sins and transforming us to His righteousness.

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, Philippians 2:8‭-‬9 NKJV (read 2:1-11 )

Abiding In His Presence

By Sister Judith Nabimanya

I am led to share little about the presence…abiding and remaining in the presence of God. Scripture tells us that we can only bring forth any fruit if we remain..in him. In him we move live and have our being Acts 17:28.

Whatever we do we remain in the presence and that’s is where our eyes are open to see, we grow in wisdom through his word and the teachings of the holy spirit

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:4-5
Fullness Of Joy In His Presence

I encourage us tonight to remain in his presence..he has promised us that he will never leave nor forsake us it doesn’t matter what it looks like but he is closer than a brother. His spirit is on the inside of us and as he is so are we! Praise God

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:7

We have his kind of peace, we busk in his love, our eyes are open to see the deep things of God, we bring forth fruit in season and the power to receive whatever we ask in the mighty name of Jesus

And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Exodus 33:14
Rest In His Presence

For You will not abandon me to Sheol (the place of the dead), neither will You suffer Your holy one [Holy One] to see corruption. [Acts 13:35.] You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. [Acts 2:25-28, 31.]

Psalms 16:10-11

OVERCOMING PRINCIPALITIES AND TERRITORIAL DEMONS

BY SISTER JENNIFER NAZZIWA

Principalities/Territorial Demons: These are spirit beings that are demonic in nature, that often resist the will of God in our lives. They gradually oppose the Lord and his angels in order to hamper our progress at the gates of new beginnings.

’’ And  came over to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gad’a-renes .And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. ’’

Mark 5:1

   These spirits confronted Jesus when together with his disciples passed over to the other side. Every time you decide to take a step on faith to move into your God given purpose and destiny, they come in to oppose you. These spirits were controlling the entire territory of Gad’a-renes, and when they recognized that one with greater authority had come in; they had to give up albeit without endeavouring to present their case.

These spirits are cunning. They want to make pacts with new entrants so as to remain in control. No wonder when confronting new territories, the beginning is never easy until you exercise greater power if not, you may not be able to partake of the good of the land. The good news is that “Greater is He that is in us, than the one that is in the world”. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who strengthens us.
Jesus was able to make a disciple of the man whom the legion had used as a spiritual medium. He was transformed and started testifying the wonders of the Lord to all that knew him. We have to get to the level where entire communities are transformed through exercising the power of God in our lives.

Angel and demon wrestle

WRESTLE

Cambridge advanced learners dictionary.

Wrest;
1.To get something with effort or difficulty. This is referred to as wrest control of something.
2.To violently pull something violently from someone.

Wrestle; To fight with someone especially in a sport by holding them and trying to throw them to the ground.

Obviously it’s a dangerous game we are playing here.

“Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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 6:11-12

FLESH AND BLOOD

The Flesh; Literary the physical body and not the mind or soul.

Flesh and blood; to have normal human limits, needs, etc.

The battles we encounter in moving forward to accomplish our God given mission are not carnal.

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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.And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when you obedience is fulfilled. ”

2Corinthians 10:4-6

For instance when the devil attacks you through financial indebtness. In the flesh it makes sense to settle you’re debts first before you pay your tithe and vows before the Lord. But the spirit says “pay your tithe and vows to the Lord first”. This battle is aimed at making you disobey God by not paying your tithe in order to fulfil your common sense desire to clear off your debts.

“And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good, acceptable and perfect, will of God .”

Romans 12:2

Do not pay evil for evil, for vengeance belongs to God. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Overcome evil with good.

Angels: These are ministering spirits

Angel

Daniel 10

A heavenly being very powerful that is an angel appeared to Daniel on the 24th day after he had been fasting and praying for 21 days. It is written that his body was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and h face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in the colour to polished brass. There is a powerful force that moves with these super natural beings.

This angel had been sent to Daniel by God. He empowered Daniel by touching him so he rose to his knees, because he was greatly beloved and highly favoured.

  When we pray we reinforce the angels of God to fight for us in the spirit. Our minds are opened and we begin to understand and comprehend the mysteries of the Kingdom which have been previously hidden from us. Unseen spiritual forces of darkness known as principalities blind people to keep them in ignorance. They resist and divert people’s attention from God’s instruction and direction, deterring them from entering their destiny or divine purpose.
They cause fear and unbelief which leads to frustration and failure in our God given missions. Daniel took time to seek and understand the things of God and God sent him empowerment through an angel. Wisdom was added to him, he began understanding mysteries.

WAYS OF OVERCOMING.

   1.Live in the spirit. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Romans 12
   2.Pray persistently .Daniel 10:2-3
   3.Read the word of God an apply it. Joshua 1:8
   4.Put on the full armour of God Ephesians 6 :11-12.
In Summary, we need to understand that as we advance on our journey to greatness and fulfilment of our God given purpose, in our endeavour to conquer new territories , We are confronted by principalities aimed at hindering us to fulfil our God given mission.

Our response should be to put on the whole armour of God in order for us to be able to overcome the tricks of the devil. Through persistent prayer and the reading of the word God empowers us  to win the battles in the spirit and we are able to expand God’s kingdom in the physical by conquering new territories or soul winning.

HOW DO YOU TREAT THE TEMPLE OF GOD IN YOU?

BY EVANGELIST HENRY ELOCHUKWU

This is what I preached in a pastor’s conference when I was just 15 years old and they contacted doc. Please read carefully and judge this matter for yourself. I told them–”Do you know you are a Spirit and that Spirit lives in a house called The Body or flesh” once the body is weak, tortured or destroyed the spirit leaves it(death).This is an act of spirits naturally.

This is why people die in sickness, accidents,viruses, bullets etc, because their spirit got tired of that inhabitations called”BODY”. As the body became weaker than the spirit could sustain. Spirit naturally don’t inhabits weak bodies. Even Jesus gave up the Ghost on the cross after being tortured and demoralized..

This is Why God wishes you to be in good health first, even before your soul prosper, your body is the first thing He needs before your soul Your soul is not as important as your Body is to God, because the soul can only be born again through the body. A spirit or soul can not accept Jesus or become a born again except it dwells in a flesh or body and your body is all he needs to execute His plans here on earth.

Even God couldn’t Redeem man until He was birthed or manifested in a flesh or body.

God needs your body more than you do that is why He provides an atmosphere Called ”HEALING EXPERIENCE”– a system provided for restoration or replacement of weak parts of the body from its original place of creation.

Spirits can’t be born again..once a sinner dies, he can’t get born again because of his body is the only license the spirit have to access God or Satan. Satan do not posses spirit, he possess bodies.

Your body is a mystery because it is a house of many rooms. It can accommodate demons in thousands–”legions”. Demons have no rest until they find a body to leave on. God calls it a “temple”. One of the biggest Temple in Nigeria now, is Dunamis Church of pastor Paul Enenche with 100,000 capacity but your body is larger than that capacity. Do you know that your body is larger than the world largest auditorium???

Heaven and earth can’t contain God, yet as big as God is, He dwells in your body.

This body we treate anyhow is a double mysteries sir/ma, But you see, we fail to understand this mystery that’s why we treat our body anyhow…

A system that houses being more ancient than time. Is not an ordinary system. Now you know this. The question now is— how do you treate your God giving body?

1.Carelessly?
God gave you black eyes, black skin, muscular body, etc and you decided to surgically change it…
It’s an insult and a mockery on God’s integrity..
Take it or leave it.

And let me remind you, that anything that is not at it state of origin, if uttered attract rapid or natural consequences…Go to hospitals and see cases..

2.Sinfully?.
Sin can kill your God given body, sins like, Sexual sins(fornication, abortion, adultery,masturbation, lesbianism, homosexuality etc)drunkenness, smoking, bitterness, greediness, corruption,robbery etc avoid them all..

3.Recklessly?
Lack of sleep, lack of good hygiene, speed driving, malnutrition,lack of prayer and study life?..etc

We should always find a way to take care of the body because spirit do not stay long in weak or tortured bodies. Your spirit is the strength that powers your body but when the body is weak the spirit functions in your body looses its grip and departs. It’s a sin to treate your God given body anyhow. So many people died so early cause of reckless and lackadaisical life style.

If your body suffers any consequences as a result of your carelessness, even God and your soul will not be happy with what you did with your body!!!

Have you sinned against your body and you know it? Now your still alife you have opportunities to amend your ways.
