Genesis 1:26-27 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." God gave dominion to man (mankind) and the scripture clearly says "male and female created He them". God gave dominion to them both. They were not meant to dominate one another. God intended that they exercise authority through the release of their God given potentials. In doing so they would experience fulfilment whilst discovering, developing and deploying their gifts and talents within the context of their relationship with God and with one another. Their creation in Genesis...

This word integrity is from the root word Integer, which means whole number. The word has to do with wholeness, being true to God, to one’s self from one’s heart. There must be guiding principles for integrity to be real. Wholesome principles that are true and act as a grid through which events and circumstances in our lives are judged. It has to do with being just, right and truthful. A key example is found in Genesis 20:5-6 where a king who was told that Sarah was Abraham’s sister was planning to take her as his wife. God intervened in the matter and confronted the king for attempting to take another man’s wife. His reply was that he did what he did out of integrity of his heart and God said He kept him from sinning because he was doing it out of a heart of integrity. It is interesting to note...

“The earnest (heartfelt, continued prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]” (James 5:16 Amplified Bible.) “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22). We have many promises in the Bible that help us develop confidence in the place of prayers as well as God’s willingness to hear and answer us when we pray. However, one of the unresolved issues in the lives of many Christians is the subject of unanswered prayers. I have heard people say God can say “yes”, “no” or “wait”. Is this true? There are many unanswered prayers in the lives of many believers. Some have no idea what God wants or what His plans are for their lives, so...

DISCIPLESHIP Ask Anonymous (A.S) Welcome to the all new 'Ask Anonymous!' Send in your questions to office@uk.fowm.org for Rev. Kola to answer, and your question may be featured here. Q: Dear sir, I get haunted by my past sin; how do I get rid of it? A: Dear Brother, Thank you for your question and by the grace of God this is the answer. The sins of the past haunting us is the work of the flesh, empowered by the demonic. What is sin? It is a transgression of God’s law or Word. It is the nature of the devil as well as the nature of the fallen man. When man fell, he took on the nature of satan. Sin is a nature. This nature manifests itself through the desires of the flesh. The desires of the flesh have been empowered by what the bible calls lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and pride of life. These...

Daniel was described as a man with the spirit of excellence - ‘an excellent spirit was found in him.’ (Daniel 6:3-5). He was described as faithful, without error or fault, and the secret was found in his connection with his God. With that kind of spirit they could not stop him from succeeding or rising to the fullness of his potential unless they cut him off from his God-connection. In Acts 24:13-21, from the Amplified translation, we read how Paul, in his own defence, talks about his relationship with God: ’and therefore I always exercise and discipline myself (mortifying my body, deadening my carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavouring in all respects) to have a clear conscience, void of offence toward God and men’ (verse 16). To have an excellent spirit demands that we walk in wisdom, knowing how to deal rightly with people, and maintain a relationship with...

This is the end or (bottom line) of the matter: fear God and keep His commandments. The two ingredients: the fear of God and keeping His commandments (obedience) are vital to our study of stewardship as they form the foundation or the basis for the operations for our study subject. The fear of God is the worshipful reverence for God that leads us not only to depart from sin (as it does not please God) but it engenders an attitude of worship and love for God. Obedience to God implies doing what God wants with the right motives and focus. The purpose, principles and practise of stewardship are very vital to our life’s achievements. God’s expectation of mankind can be summarised by the word: Stewardship. Faithfulness in stewardship is the pass mark for promotion and increase. To be a good steward of anything you must know the purpose of the thing....

My heart yearns for the fullness of God to be manifested in human lives. Paul prayed in the book of Ephesians that they may be filled with the fullness of God. It is obvious from scripture that God wants to see the revelation of His glory in the lives of members of His family on earth. There have been progressive revelations of His plans and purposes throughout church history especially as we study the restoration of truth, offices and understandings. I believe we should be moving towards the finishing line now: Coming into the full manifestation of the sons of God. There have been many streams of knowledge as well as movements in the Body of Christ. We have ‘tabernacled’ around one stream of knowledge or the other, thinking that it was the fullness, only to realise it was a part; not the full picture. Let us take in the full picture so...

This is one of the secret treasures of the people of old who walked with God in their times and had very successful outcomes in their obedience and response to God's dealings in their lives. Our study is an attempt to unravel some of these secrets to enhance our own walk with God; a study on holiness which is made possible through a lifestyle of separation unto God, for His purposes not to be hindered in our lives. It also includes an understanding of quality decisions called consecration.  A quality decision is a decision based on God's Word from which there is no changing of mind due to pressure. The enemy has taken advantage of our humanity's tendency to laziness, entertainment, carelessness and generally pandering towards ease. He (Satan) has combined this well with disappointment and hurts to breed strife and disconnections among the saints of God.  All of these were designed to...

The quality of our lifestyle plays a major role in the way and manner in which we can minister the power of God. There is a connection between our lifestyle choice and the steady flow of God's power in our lives. When we read about how many men and women of old walked in the power of God, we seldom see the quality of their obedience and the other prices they paid to experience the power flowing in their lives. Yes, they do have a calling and yes, God was willing to use them to fulfil His purposes, but they paid the price none the less. Our present lifestyle makes it almost impossible to pay any meaningful price. We are so absorbed in many legitimate things that it seems ridiculous to think of adding any price to what we are already paying, just to make ends meet or keep up with...
