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...

We are called to make disciples of Nations. Many need to know what it means to become a disciple themselves before they can make others Disciples of Christ. Luke 9:23-27 “And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also]. For whoever would preserve his life and save it will lose and destroy it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he will preserve and save it [from the penalty of eternal death]. For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and ruins or forfeits (loses) himself? Because whoever is ashamed of Me and of My teachings, of him...

The quality of your life, whether good or bad, is based upon how thankful you are towards God. It is one attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. To find joy in life, find thankfulness. One who is thankful for a little enjoys much but the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. In the book of Phillipians, the apostle Paul admonishes us to 'rejoice and again I say rejoice', (chapter 4,verse 4.) We are told to “be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let our requests be made known to God.” (Verse 6) Many scriptures encourage us to praise God and be thankful. In Mathew 6:34 we are admonished to not allow ourselves to worry about anything. Gratitude is the healthiest human emotion. These are things we can put into practise as we enjoy the power of gratitude. Become one with...

Every instruction in God’s Word carries a consequence. When obeyed, the rewards are there and when disobeyed, the rewards do show up with time. What happens many times is that the benefits are sometimes limited to our understandings. Without our understanding, our cooperation is limited and possibly inconsistent. Many times we tend to be event-oriented rather than process-oriented. God’s dealings are usually process-oriented though they manifest as events. One of such instructions is the instruction to give. This runs through the Bible and its basis is found in the principle of the seed and harvest. The entire kingdom of God operates on the seed principle. Jesus made that clear in Mark 4, when He was discussing the parable of the sower. In verse 13, He asked if they got the parable, because failure to get it implies they may not get the others. God Himself, in carrying out His redemption plan planted the...

The key ingredient that releases potential in any field of life is commitment. It can turn a potential leader to a successful one above all other qualities. When you are interested in something you do it only when it is convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses. Many are interested in things because they are good or they like the people involved. Interest alone will not get the job done. Many love the Lord, they say, and are interested in seeing His Kingdom expand but expansion will not happen based on their interest only. It takes commitment for growth to take place. In your personal life, being interested in growth won’t bring it; it is being committed to the principles of growth that will produce growth. You are only committed when your consistency continues when it is no longer convenient. You endure, persevere and suffer long...

Fulfilling Your Prophetic Destiny 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 of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and...

"There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight" Numbers 13:33. The grasshopper complex is the mentality or mind-set that prevents full obedience to God through intimidation from other factors. We feel paralysed in the face of odds against God's will in our lives. The story from the book of Numbers shows us how God"s instruction to take the land was met with opposition in the minds of those who were to receive the promise. From God s perspective, the land had been given. How to take it practically involved a fight with the inhabitants, the strategy for that was yet to be given. Read Numbers 13 from the first verse. God told them the land was flowing with milk and honey and they found it so. Now God did not tell them...

There seems to be a 3-fold pattern for most of the things of God in the Bible. For example we see God revealing Himself as the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, each revealing a part of God’s nature and purpose in His processes for the human race. Each of His revealed identity captures something of His purpose and all three give us a more correct picture of God’s plans and purposes. The God of Abraham reveals the aspect of God as One who provides even in the most impossible situation. He is more than able to do the impossible when we believe, have faith in His Word (like Abraham) and participate in His plans for our lives. The God of Isaac is the One who expects us to walk in submission and obedience. Isaac was revealed as one who was in subjection to his father and all through his life God’s...

Every region of the earth has its peculiar demonic operations and these operations have seasons! A casual look around the world and hearing the news can easily show activities of demons peculiar to certain regions. The people in these regions have their part that they play for these activities to either be intensified or reduced. It is believed that evil spirits like remaining in certain regions of the earth as exemplified by the demons who asked Jesus not to send them away from a particular region.  It is also believed that evil spirits are disembodied spirits from the biblical pre-Adamic creation. They are generally unclean spirits, seeking to give expression to their nature through human beings. The more they take full control of humans, the greater expression they can give. They seek to oppress, depress or fully possess human beings. They demonise and influence in whatever way possible. They are relentless and...

The Year of Favour! Prophetic Word for 2015 THE YEAR OF FAVOUR! (Taken from 2014's Cross-over message by Rev. Kola Ewuosho) Introduction  As we wait on the lord to move in to the coming year, I just want you to know that, first of all it is necessary for us to give thanks; For the life that has been preserved For all the things that has happened in the year 2014: the good, the bad and the ugly.
