I have also realised that every dimension of grace calls for our hearts to submit to it. Submission is yielding to one another and this is only possible when we humble ourselves.  Grace can only teach those who are yielded to it. When apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers want to impart the grace they carry in their office callings, it is still the humble who will receive the grace they can impart! How much we miss out when we hold on to our opinions and cares, instead allowing grace to move us on in God's plans for our lives!   This write-up is calling for a heart examination. How much are we in the state of humility which will enable God to correct, equip and impart strength into us for the journey ahead? How much are we willing to have a change of heart, lifestyle or disposition so we can be...

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is defined as the unmerited favour God poured on humanity through the Sacrifice of our Saviour Jesus Christ, the Son of God. This grace has brought salvation from sin, sickness, diseases, poverty etc. we have a new identity, carry a new authority and expect a different outcome in our lives after we get born again! We also learn to cooperate with the Spirit of God in helping us to deal with our humanity. So we can learn and participate as well as enjoy what God has done for us in Christ; what the Holy Spirit is doing in us as believers; and what the Son is doing at the right hand of the Father on our behalf. He ever lives to intercede for us. Praise God for a such wonderful plan for us.   Grace, however, has dimensions: there is the teaching dimension; then the enabling...

Your giving is a major key to destroying the stronghold of poverty. As you give of your time, talent and treasures to the Lord, you are offering sacrifices acceptable to the Lord. Our giving is part of our worship. There are different types of giving in the bible. There is the tithe, giving to the poor, giving for THE gospel etc.   Malachi 3:10-12 Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time...

The process of overcoming poverty starts with prayers. Then we need to have a change of identity, change in our consciousness of who we are; are we blessed or under a curse? Poverty is part of the curse of the law. Change in our expectations and hence change in our lifestyles. In overcoming the spirit of poverty deliverance is needed: the casting away of the spirit itself, the renunciation of the hold of that spirit on its victim, then the change of thought structures and patterns that the spirit of poverty has developed in its victims, then a change of lifestyle which includes a new vision of oneself, with new expectations and new habits of giving and thinking of being a blessing to others. For many, poverty was inherited. You know poverty thoughts when you see how the thoughts are centred around being a 'victim' of one’s circumstances: how you feel you...

Let us now study these operations of evil beings and how we can overcome them.   Ephesians 6:10-18 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in...

Many have considered a lack of money or resources to be a normal way of life. In Christ, this is not so!  Christ bore our poverty as well as our sin and sicknesses so we should not bear them again. Like everything in the kingdom of darkness, there are ruling spirits who administer these things.  A sickness can be caused by a physical problem or infection or poisoning or anything in the natural. This does not mean that spirits are not behind these operations. They may not be directly responsible but they are the ones behind such oppression called sicknesses and disease.   Acts 10:38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and,in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.   Oppression is of the devil...

DEDICATION to the Lord   Psalms 112:1-9 PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres and worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments. His [spiritual] offspring shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Prosperity and welfare are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. Light arises in the darkness for the upright, gracious, compassionate, and just [who are in right standing with God]. It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. He will not be moved forever; the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright, in right standing with God) shall be in everlasting remembrance. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord. His heart is established and steady, he will not be afraid while he waits to see his desire established upon...

PROVISIONS Healing, Protection, providing all needs met, according to His riches in glory. Directions and guidance.   Philippians 4:19 And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.   Psalms 91 HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the...

The New Birth The scriptures are personalized and spoken as to build into ourselves the realities expressed in God's word.   2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him]. It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal...

HOW TO RECEIVE SPIRITUAL IMPARTATION Spiritual Hunger. Jesus said those who hunger and thirst after righteousness are blessed, because they shall be satisfied. Gideon was hungry for the move of God and he was used mightily of God to bring deliverance to his people.We must know that God is more willing to see miracles happen than we are but He is waiting on us to position ourselves through deep spiritual hunger. Past moves of God happened as men positioned themselves through deep hunger, not just because God decided to move. Asking. Jesus said he that asks, receives. Matt.7:8. James 4:2 says, “You do not have, because you do not ask God”.  God gives the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him. Solomon asked God for wisdom and he got it! What we ask for shows what our priorities in life are. Purposeful interaction & Discipleship. Acts 4:13 says “When they...
