2 Corinthians 2:11 To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions. John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). 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 armour [the armour 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...

One of the reasons why it is difficult for many to get sold out on God, is because deep inside our male psyche is a desire to be celebrated as one of our esteemed celebrities. Years ago I had this question rise in my heart as I stayed in fellowship with the Lord during one of those times of “heart-to-heart” discussions. “Would you rather obey Me or be celebrated”. My answer was “I thought obedience will lead to being celebrated”. The answer came back to me,” Obedience will not necessarily lead to celebration, you will need to choose. If you choose obedience, you will leave your celebration in My hands”. Obedience to God needs to be with the right motive. The right motive should be love. Love for God, that is. It should also be with the right focus-Christ should be the focus. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who...

God always has greatness in store for us, but our definition of greatness is different from His. That is why we need a renewal of our minds, which is knowing God’s mind (WORD) concerning everything in life. God created us (man) with the ability to carry pictures, images, and gave us the gift of imagination. He uses this to give us a hope and a future (our destiny) i.e. what He has in mind for us, which includes greatness. The problem is not with the pictures, images or vision we carry in our minds, it is with our interpretation of them and trying to work them out ourselves independent of God. A glance at Joseph’s life concerning his dreams makes this clear. Before we examine Joseph's dreams to glean the principles, it will be pertinent to note some facts about God's destiny for us. 1. We must note that God is Sovereign...

Isaiah 53:3-6,  “He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him. Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of...

We need to know the will of God and appreciate His plans so we can participate in fulfilling His purposes in every area of our lives. God has plans for every life and they are not set in concrete. He is also aware of the circumstances of our lives and our freedom to make choices. All these impact how His will is being done on earth. He has foreknowledge; He has set laws into motion, including the law of cause and effect. He is also all powerful in that He can make all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. (See Romans 8:28-30). Purpose can be defined as the original intention of the creator or manufacturer of a product. In the Greek language, it suggests a deliberate plan, a proposition, an advance plan, an intention and a design. It is...

What would this earth look like if every believer in Christ was strong in the Lord and in the power of His might? If every believer could handle their personal, family and national problems with prayers and the level of wisdom they were walking in? What if they could stand against the wiles of the devil and put him to flight by resisting him steadfastly in the faith? What if their consciousness of who they are in Christ was so strong that they did not yield to any deception of the enemy? What if they were speaking God's Word and seeing God's power changing circumstances around them? What if every believer was highly developed in character, that God could commit so much into their hands? What if we could fully represent God on earth like Jesus did when he was on earth? What if every believer had found their place...

“Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?” In Luke 6:46 our Lord Jesus asked this question when he was on earth and it is a question that still needs to be answered today. The question, amongst other things, challenges our understanding and application of His Lordship over us as well as our recognition of the fact that His Word should have authority over our lives. In our present day world, all these have a place in our study and thoughts. I believe that in response to this question we might answer, “Lord, the things that inform what we do have been established in us before we accepted you as our Lord, so we have no place for what you say. Moreover, what you say runs contrary to what we have been programmed to do and how we live our lives. By nature we...

A fulfilled life does not happen by accident! A fulfilled life is one who has released all that God put into that life to benefit the human race! The potentials within have been discovered, developed and deployed to bring maximum value added to humanity. Purpose accomplished! Assignment fulfilled! God's gift to us is the life given to us; our gift to Him is what we do with that life! A fulfilled life is lived intentionally! There are laws that govern every aspect of our being. We can observe the principles and laws through circumstances that are repeated throughout history. The laws require a force for them to be operational! The law of gravity needs the force of gravity. Where there is zero gravity the law does not operate. Some spiritual laws also require the force of faith. Mental or soulish laws require the force of habit or repetition. Natural laws require natural forces!...

The miraculous is usually preceded by instructions that are ridiculous when one reads through the bible. Some outstanding deeds of power, I mean the supernatural release of God’s power can be as a result of ridiculous instructions obeyed. The similarities that are seen in some of these demonstrations of power mean that there are lessons to learn from God’s Word if we shall go on and position ourselves to receive from God and experience His power. The first miracle Jesus did while on earth was the turning of water to wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee as recorded in John chapter 2. The lessons are very important and they are these: He was invited along with His disciples; His mother, Mary turned to Him when they needed help; She gave instructions to the servants: whatever He says to you, do it; He instructs them to fill pots with water and...

The last days, which we are in, are characterised by the news of the operations of satan on a large scale. The level of contradictions happening in many lives, gives one some concern. Nations, regions and individuals are not spared. These same days are designed by God for His people to experience victory at a level unprecedented in history. We need to know how to turn trials into victories and how to turn pressures into paths of pressing into greater heights in God. Let us start by establishing what and where the pressures are coming from. Luke 8:11-15 "Now the meaning of the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God. Those along the travelled road are the people who have heard; then the devil comes and carries away the message out of their hearts, that they may not believe (acknowledge Me as their Saviour and devote themselves to Me) and be saved [here and...
