Our Lord Jesus recognised His purpose and matured into the fulfilment of His purposes in the Father God. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. Isaiah 61:1-4 “THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favour] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil...

“In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend (overcome, understand or quench) it” (John 1:4-5). The battle Between Light and Darkness has been the battle of influence throughout the history of mankind. Part of God's purposes for our lives is that we should influence others. This word 'influence' signifies our purpose on earth. Some influence can matter for eternity; not just for now. God's influence through us has an eternal purpose at its end. Influence: this word has been around for a long time and its effect is seen throughout history. Both positive and negative influences can be seen to characterise the history of mankind. Good people have an effect on others for good and bad people have some influence that turns out bad. Everybody is being influenced by someone or something no matter who...

THE GOVERNMENTAL ASSEMBLY: “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and the church of the first born who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect”(Hebrews 12:22-23). This represents the Assembly of God’s people who carry authority. The “ecclesia” is the equivalent of the senate of a government. The strength of God flows out of Zion (Ps. 110:1-3) and His Kingdom rules in the midst of His enemies. The Holy Spirit through prayers and the gifts of the Spirit, extends the sceptre of God’s authority over the nations. The essential feature is that the governmental authority of God is in His people and they are required to respect His order in their lives and conduct. The increase of His government (kingdom)...

Principles of Life Management: Everything we have was given to us (by God). James 1:17-25. Everything we are given has potential in them. They can increase, multiply and become greater than how we were given. How we handle these things given to us will determine how we are rewarded or judged. Our ability to manage (steward) these things is the key to our success in life. We shall give account to our Giver (God) for how we related, treated and utilized what we were given. Our respect for God (fear of God) will determine how we treat His gifts in our lives. His gifts are designed to bless many others, bring fulfilment in our lives, and bring satisfaction to His heart (glory to God). By humility and the fear of The Lord are riches and honour and life (Proverbs 22:4). Proverbs 22:4- "The reward of humility and the reverent and worshipful...

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” (Eph. 1:3) “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.” (Deut. 28:2). All the provisions of God await their activation on earth for them to come into full manifestation in the lives of the people they were intended for. For many, there seems to be an endless cry for certain provisions. Some people make God look mean for what they are experiencing. Many have questioned the love of God when certain things happen to them or to people around them. The provisions of God are numerous and the needs for them are in abundance. The Bible says His mercies are from everlasting to everlasting, they are new every morning and they endure forever....

BY LEARNING HOW GOD PROSPERS HIS PEOPLE, YOU CAN HAVE A RECESSION PROOF FUTURE Does God have a plan for His people in these days of the credit crunch? Are there lessons to be learnt from this recession? What can we learn to make us recession proof in the future? This global phenomenon has had a ripple effect in many aspects of the lives of many people. Many have faced untold hardship while others have had their homes repossessed and properties confiscated. Many parts of people's lives have been negatively affected by the current recession. What is God saying about these human tragedies? Is there comfort from any source? Can we have assurance for our future in view of all these realities? GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE: TO BE IN HEALTH AND PROSPER AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS 3 John 2 says “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be...

Everything you observe in human behaviour usually has a governing principle or philosophy. Many of the human actions we see may have been a product of necessity or borne out of a desire to be something or achieve something. The moment it becomes a repeated activity, be sure some thoughts have been generated to justify its existence in the sphere of human behaviour. To change the external behaviours without dealing with the internal operating principle is an attempt in futility. Habit is that which we do repeatedly and it afterward takes over our faculties and we seem not to be able to change it. What we started suddenly becomes our master! It is the horse that we ride into our future. We chose the horse in the first place, now we seem to be at the mercy of this horse taking us where it wants to go. Let us go beneath the surface...

These prayers by Apostle Paul contain the keys to a future of victory and fulfilment in any Christian's life. I personally recommend them to all who care to read this. Pray them daily for at least one month - then go 6 months. I use the Amplified translation to write out the prayers. Make it personal and you can use it to pray for others too! For eyes to be enlightened, to know the hope to which we are called and the inheritance we have in God and God has in us and the greatness of the power at work towards us who believe. Wow! Ephesians 1:17-23 [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, By having the eyes of your heart flooded with...

“Know you not that which run a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain” 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. The Apostle Paul uses the metaphor of an athlete to describe the discipline needed in the Christian race. He advises that we should be temperate in all things and bring the body under control. These all call for discipline. There are rules that govern how athletes perform their sports and the rules differ from sport to sport. Discipline can be defined as the mental readiness to do what is needed to accomplish desired or expected results. We subject ourselves to the discipline needed to accomplish whatever we set out to accomplish. Professional athletes prepare well in advance for any competition. They regulate their feeding, their exercises, developing strengths where needed, and their sleep or relaxation is aimed at producing the best possible results. In 2 Timothy 2:3-7, Paul teaches...

The journey of another 12 months has started. The year 2016 has rolled in and before long you will ask whatever happened to time. Time and tide, they say waits, for no man. We are all given 24 hours for each day and when it is gone, it can never be regained. So learn to use time wisely. In this write up, I am particular about the folks who want their life to count for now and eternity. Those who want to fulfil God’s purposes for their lives and have the fulfilment that they are on course for the destinies in God to be fulfilled. By that I mean whatever God has designed for their lives to contribute that is what they want too. We are looking at four different aspects of this journey called life and see how we can be encouraged to pursue this walk of faith to fulfil our...
