THE POWER OF HIS PRESENCE

The power of God is headquartered in His presence. The presence of God is powerful and the power of God is presence-full. The presence of God is the climate for the supernatural. The supernatural is natural where God is present. The presence of God is the guarantee of rest (Ex. 33:14)

The presence of God guarantees the elimination of obstructions and the creation of openings (Ps. 114:1-8; Josh. 3:15-16). The presence of God is the guarantee of direction and guidance (Ex. 13:21; John 14:6). With the presence of God you can’t miss the road into the wrong marriage or business or environment to live in. Allocations are location-specific; your allocation is tied to a specific location

The presence of God guarantees the judgment of other gods and altars (Ex. 12:12; 1Sam. 5:1-5) and The Presence of God is the guarantee of Divine blessings and supernatural supply (2Sam. 6:11-12). If you cannot take God’s presence from a man, no matter how bitter you are, you cannot take the blessing from him. The Presence of God weighs heavier than the presence of any president on the earth; struggle for the presence of God

The presence of God is guarantee of supernatural empowerment (1Kings 17:1; Acts 2:1-4, 3:6-7; 10:38). Every divine presence carrier is a Kingdom power broker. The prayer for God’s power is answered when you carry God’s presence. When your spiritual temperature increases, the afflictions that can afflict you decrease!

The presence of God guarantees the unveiling of mysteries (Ex. 4:2-3; Heb. 4:12-13). God can denude every mystery around your life. The presence of God guarantees the opening up of destiny (Ex. 3:1-5). Moses was the wanderer that became a deliverer by an encounter with the presence of God (Ex. 3:!-5). Jacob was the person that became a nation (Israel) by an encounter with God’s presence (Gen. 32:24-28). Who you used to be is giving way today for who you are meant to be!

SECRETS OF GOD’S PRESENCE
1. Passion and desperation for His presence (Ex. 33:17-18; Ps. 42:1-2)
2. Word Access (John 1:1-5; 1Sam. 3:21). Access into the Word is access to God (1Sam. 3:21). Every new insight ushers you into fresh presence
3. A contrite and humble heart (Ps. 34:18; Isa. 57:15)
4. An upright life (Ps. 15:1-2; 24:3-5)

SHOW AND TELL

Charles Blodin a 330 -metre tightrope across Niagara Falls on 30 June 1859. About 25,000 spectators gathered to watch the incredible stunt. Charles stood in front of the crowd and asked. " How believe I can walk across Niagara Falls?”

“We believe,” the crowd roared. And Charles walked safely across Niagara Falls, 50 metres up. Five days later, he asked , “How many believe I can walk across Niagara Falls blindfolded and pushing a wheelbarrow?” The crowd cheered. And Charles did it again.

Two weeks later, the crowd gathered again. “How  many believe I can walk across with a person on my back ?” he asked. The crowd screamed : “ Of course! We believe !”

Charles looked straight at a person in the front. You , sir. Climb on! The man refused. There is a big difference between talking about faith and acting on that faith. In Acts 9:1-20, Saul and Ananias both learned what it meant to act on their faith.

THE FALL OF LUCIFER

Many see the work of evil, with its woe and desolation, and question how this can exist under the sovereignty of One who is infinite in wisdom, power and love. Those who are disposed to doubt the seize upon this as an excuse for rejecting the words of Holy Writ. Tradition and misinterpretation have insured the teaching of the Bible concerning the character of God, the nature of His government, and the principles of His dealing with sin.

It is impossible to explained the origin sin so as to give a reason for its existence. Yet enough may be understood corning the origin and final disposition of sin to make fully manifest the justice and benevolence of God. God was in no wise responsible for sin; there was no arbitrary withdrawal of divine grace, deficiency in the divine government, that gave occasion for rebellion. Sin is an intruder for whose presence no reason can be given. To excuse it is defend it. Could excuse for it be found , it would cease to be sin. Sin is the outworking of a principles at with the law of love, which is the foundation of the divine government.

Before the entrance of evil there was peace and joy throughout the universe. Love for God was supreme. Love for one another impartial. Christ the Only Begotten of God was one with the eternal Father in  nature, and purpose of God. “By him were all things created, that are in heaven,…..whether they be thrones or dominions, principalities, or power.” [ Colossians 1:16]. The law of love being the foundation of the government of God, the happiness of all created beings depended on their accord with its principles of righteousness. God takes no pleasure in forced allegiance, and to all He grants freedom of will, that they may render Him voluntary service.

But there was one that chose pervert this freedom. Sin originated with him, who , next to Christ, had been most honoured by God. Before his fall, Lucifer was first of the covering cherubs, holy and undefiled. “ Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. [Ezekiel 28:6-17, Isaiah14:13-14]

Coveting the honour which the Father had bestowed upon His Son, this prince of angels aspired to power which it was the prerogative of Christ alone to weild. A note of discovered now marred the celestial harmonies. The exaltation of self awakened forebonding of evil in minds to whom God’s glory was supreme. The heavenly councils pleaded with Luficer. The Son of God presented before him the goodness and justice of the creator and the sacred nature of His law. In departing from it , Luficer would dishonour his Maker and bring ruin on himself. But the warning only aroused resistance. Luficer allowed jealousy of Christ to prevail.

Pride  nourished the desire for supremacy. The high honours conferred on Luficer called forth no gratitude to the Creator. He aspired to be equal with God. Yet the Son of God was the acknowledged Sovereign of heaven , one in power and authority with the Father. In all the counsels of God, Christ was a participant , but Luficer was not permitted to enter into the divine purpose. “Why,” questioned this mighty angel, “should Christ have the supremacy? Why is He thus honoured above Lucifer?”

Leaving his place in the presence of God, Luficer went forth to diffuse discontent among the angels. With mysterious secrecy concealing his purpose under an appearance of reverence for God, he endeavoured to excite dissatisfaction concerning the laws that governed heavenly beings, intimating that they imposed unnecessary restraint. Since their nature were holy   he argued that angels should obey the dictates of their own will. God had dealt unjustly with him in bestowing supreme honour upon Christ. He claimed he was not aiming at self-exaltation but was seeking to secure liberty for all the inhabitants of heaven, that they might attain a higher existence.

WHEN IT GETS DARK

It takes darkness to appreciate light. In the story of creation, we see that the life cycle for complete day was evening and morning. Notice that morning followed evening and not the other way round, meaning light followed darkness. The book of Genesis is foundation to our faith and so we deduced that after darkness, light shine whether the devil likes it or not. That is God’s design.


Interestingly in the New testaments, believers are now light of the world. We are the ones to disperse darkness wherever it shows up in our world. Isaiah 60:3 says, “ And the Gentiles shall come to thy light , and kings to be brightness of thy rising   ”. Notice , “ thy light” and “thy rising” . Our light and rising are synonymous .

Some years ago, it got dark as terrorists blue the World Trade Centre in New York City with commercial airplanes killing  many people in the process. While some may gotten over the incident, the memories still linger with others. The light we represent as believers is the hope of this world. We arise and shine , therefore for our light is come and glory of God is risen upon you.

Conclusively, there is always a way out wherever it gets dark . John 6:17 says “ and it was now dark and Jesus  had not come to them.” Naturally a storm followed thus creating fear and as they rowed in fear they saw Him who is light appeared walking on the sea and the storm. He calmed their fears and immediately, they got to the land. This was no doubt a miracle. God will always show up for His own when it gets dark. Amen!

SLEEPAHOLIC

When we look at how  words are coined or formed we tend to have an idea of their meaning and sometimes we just put the words together and try to get at what we have in mind. For example, a man who takes a lot of alcohol is said to be an alcoholic. Similarly, one who loves work is a workaholic. It follows then that he who loves sleep is a “ sleepaholic” [ a word not in the dictionary ]
Probverbs 6:6-11
6: Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!
7: It has no commander, no overseer or ruler,
8: yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.
9: How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?
10: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest
11: and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.

Proverbs 6:6-11, refers the sleepaholic to the ant though they have nothing in common.
The tiny ant has more sense than one who sleeps away his or her life. Simply put it this way, the ant is wiser than the “sleepaholic.” Successful people are disciplined with habits including sleeping habit.

Sleep is good , quite refreshing and as matter of fact, you cannot have a balanced productive balanced life or productive day if you don't sleep well. Our concern is a little more “ the extra sleep” or  “ the extra slumber.” A little more than is the required will bring a problem!

There are different categories of people and different degrees of sleep. Some people sleep so heavily that it will take the breaking down of wall to jerk them to consciousness. These are “ heavy sleepers. ”  Some people sleep so deeply , so heavily, so soundly that they snore, whereas there are some
“ light sleepers ” that just a crack will get them up. Whichever,  category you belong to - whatch this! While men slept, the enemy planted tares. While men slept, the enemy had enough time to do and undo.

With oversleeping comes laziness and poverty [ verse 11], will pounce in like a bandit and finally scarcity will attack. They all will take their turn. When do you wake up? And when will you wake? Shake that off today. Take some good time to plan your life and address that area of laxity in your life. Do not be caught off guard. Have nice time.

THE HAPPIEST COUNTRIES FOR 2018 RANKING

Happiness is soul of the mind. Here are the 2018 World Happiness Report . The steady decline of the US as the world’s largest economy grapples with a crisis of obesity, substance abuse and depression. The study reveals the US has slipped to 18th place, five places down on 2016. 

The top four places are taken by Nordic nations, with Finland followed by Norway, Denmark and Iceland. Burundi in east Africa, scarred by bouts of ethnic cleansing, civil wars and coup attempts, is the unhappiest place in the world. 

Strikingly, there are five other nations – Rwanda, Yemen, Tanzania, South Sudan and the Central African Republic – which report happiness levels below that of even Syria.

For the first time the UN also examined the happiness levels of immigrants in each country, and found Finland also scored highest. “Finland has vaulted from fifth place to the top of the rankings this year,” said the report’s authors, although they noted that the other three Nordic countries (plus Switzerland) have almost interchangeable scores.

MIND MANAGEMENT

OPENING PROSE: 
 An elder in the Church shared a story  that has to do with when he was much younger. In the Church he was attending then, he was the one in the technical room of the church. He always sees to the maximum functioning of the engine, microphones,etc. He said, the church has a culture of appreciating outstanding church workers every December 31st during the cross over night service when the church will be filled to its capacity with people in the overflow. For more than 4 years, the church has never remember to appreciate anybody in the technical room. The attention has always been on those workers that members are seeing every Sunday, every service, etc. Not someone in a room that people might not see when they are coming in into the church because he will be in the technical room before the commencement of service and will still be there when members are going home.He was feeling neglected and forgotten by the church as it appears that he is not recognized and his efforts of making the church services great with excellent P.A system output was not counted worthy of appreciation.

Then, there came that particular December 31st of that year. It was time to recognize those outstanding workers again. There names were called and they were celebrated with ovations and were given awards/gifts. This man's name was not called again. He got angry and told himself that he needs to ' teach them lesson'. He removed the plugs of all the microphones at once. The people in the auditorium saw there was still light but the microphones were no longer working. It was then some elders of the church and some people rushed into the technical room and they asked the man what happened, then he said ' so, you people know now that someone is working here to make the Microphones work? I removed it myself...'. They got the message. He fixed back the microphones and after the service, the pastor called him to admonish him and promised to appreciate him. He reminded him that God is the best rewarder. He said, his conscience smote him and he had to repent the manifestation of carnality he displayed.

Friends, are you like this beloved brother?. Are you working tirelessly in the church, in your ministry, in your company , or at home as a wife, husband, or a leader of an organization and it seems as if nobody is applauding and acknowledging your silent labour?. You are getting the feeling of neglect and obscurity and something is telling you and pushing you to ' remove the 'plugs of the microphones' so that you can call attention to yourself and make people notice you by all means?. Are you thinking of 'removing the plugs of the microphones' by reducing your loyalty, dedication , faithfulness, doggedness, to your work, life, ministry, family and Noble courses?.

Let me encourage you friends, yes, it is true that we all need motivation and appreciation from people. But even if they are not appreciating us, let's continue in doing good. There is a God in heaven who records and rewards His faithful servants. Are you a missionary In a far away land, and it seems as if you are forgotten by brethren and you are already thinking of packing it up? I encourage you to toil on. God who sent you there has not forgotten you. Every silent labour done for God is loud in His ears. He won't forget you. Read what His words says ' For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. (Hebrew 6:10).

As a wife, as a husband, whether your spouse is acknowledging your good deeds or not, please don't stop doing good. Don't be good because you want to impress your spouse but because you want to please God; the God of marriage. In whatever 'technical room' you might be working and it seems as if you are not seen or celebrated, if you are sure that God is the one who appointed you there, please, don't quit and don't remove 'the plugs of the microphones'. Be encouraged!. 



THE FACE OF OFFSHOOTS
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:17, 18).

On 08th January 2017, the hand of the Lord took me to a placed where I found a church. Standing there, I saw the main entrance wide open and people entering the church one after the other. There was a big tree outside the church. Inside were people worshiping. I saw a man standing at the corner of the church. 

Then one man came out of the church. When the man who was outside saw him come out of the church he asked him why he had come. The man said that he had come out because he wanted to have some fresh air. When he was urged to go back, he refused and said that he would go back later. The man at the corner looked at him with pity. 

Then suddenly their came another man to the church, as he was about to enter, the man who had come out called him and told him that nothing interesting was taking place inside the church and he invited Him to sit outside with him. The man refused and entered the church.

 As people continued coming to the church, the man who was on the corner urged them to enter the church while the one who had earlier come out of the church, urged them to remain outside the church. Some people entered the church and some remained outside. I saw many people gathered outside the church. The people inside the church sang hymns and heard sermons. When I looked at the people who had gathered outside the church they too started to sing and the man who came out of the church began to preach despising those who were in the church. So some people opted to remain with him outside.

After these things I saw that time was changing. Then I heard a voice saying to the people outside the church, “leave that place and enter the church and all of you sleeping wake up and go inside the church.” Some people decided to go inside but others were discouraged to enter reasoning that what is inside the church is what is here. What can we get from inside there that is better than what we have? An angel who was shouting these words appeared holding a trumpet. He came near and the tree that was outside the church was removed. Then I saw two hands descend from heaven and tardily closed the door at the entrance of the church. I turned around and saw people come running from all corners of the earth. These coming entered the church but the group outside refused to enter. I too was told to enter the church. Inside the church I found people dressed in white sitting comfortably.

As the door slowly closed, two people came running to the church and entered. Then the Spirit told me to go out and tell the man who had earlier gone out of the church and all who sat outside to get inside. I went outside and pleaded with them to go inside the church. Some heard and entered the church but the man and some who were with him refused to enter. When we entered the church, the door closed. When the door had closed then the man told his colleagues to now go and enter. When they saw the door closed the man told them to wait at the door saying, “The door will be opened, they could be probably doing something inside there.” Many other people came and stood at the door, waiting for it to open. But the door couldn’t be opened. It was shut. Locked with 10 locks of fire and the people outside had no excess into the church. 

After these things I heard a voice saying, “what you have seen is what is happening and what is going to happen in the near future. The church you saw is my church. In my church there are people who were my people but they have left me for other gods. But they don’t know that time is running out. I am pleading for them to come back and they do not want to listen. Time will come when they will be shut outside and will not have where to go. As you saw the door closed it means the door of mercy will be closed to all who are against my church, its leadership and my people. They claim to be members of my church but they are not. They hate and despise my messengers. They say they love me but hate their brothers and sister in the church. I know my people and my people hear me whenever I talk to them. But these wolves do not know that I know the intents of their minds. Some of these rebellious ones are still inside the church while others have gone outside the church like the man you saw outside. All are but outside my church whether they are physically inside my church or not. All will be shifted out and I will do to them as I did to the people you saw outside church. I see all that happens in the church and I know people that are confusing my church.

Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts” (Proverbs 4:23) . God is far more interested in changing your mind than changing your circumstances.We want God to take away all of our problems, pain, sorrow, suffering, sickness, and sadness. But God wants to work on you first, because transformation won’t happen in your life until you renew your mind, until your thoughts begin to change.

MIND MANAGEMENT: 
Why is it so important that you learn how to manage your mind? Let me give you three reasons.

Manage your mind, because your thoughts control your life. Proverbs 4:23 says, “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts” (GNT). Your thoughts are powerful and have the tremendous ability to shape your life for good or for bad. For example, maybe you accept the thought someone told you when you were growing up: “You’re worthless. You don’t matter.” If you accepted that thought, even though it was wrong, it shaped your life.

Manage your mind, because the mind is the battleground for sin. All temptation involves the mind. Paul says in Romans 7:22-23, "I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin” (TLB).

One of the reasons why you get mentally fatigued is because there’s a battle in your brain 24 hours a day. It’s debilitating because it’s intense, and it’s intense because your mind is your greatest asset. Satan wants your greatest asset! Manage your mind, because it’s the key to peace and happiness.

An unmanaged mind leads to tension; a managed mind leads to tranquility. An unmanaged mind leads to conflict; a managed mind leads to confidence. An unmanaged mind leads to stress. When you don’t try to control your mind and the way you direct your thoughts, you will have an enormous amount of stress in your life. But a managed mind leads to strength and security and serenity.

“Letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace” (Romans 8:6 NLT). Prayer O Lord my father b merciful to me and give me a right and heavenly bound heart in Jesus name.

BIBLICAL TREATMENT OF VIOLENCE


Violence is a noun (uncountable) which means extreme force. Vilence also means action intended to cause destruction, pain, or suffering. More so violence is a widespread fighting. Put more figuratively violence is Injustice or wrong doing. Violence, force and compelling power never establishes peace, it only hides the rebellion. It beats the rebellion into the shadows where the rebels become obedient outwardly but remain rebels in heart. The rebels await the opportunity to revenge by gathering a bigger force whether by intrigue, slander, deception, or ingenuity.Christ said he who takes the sword perishes by the sword. This is a natural principle. God has sought to teach this to humanity for the past 6000 years but we've been very slow to learn this principle. Take the history of Israel for instance. God even permitted Israel to use violence in obtaining their land though that was not His ideal method. And surely, they lost it by the sword, and till today, the sword has never departed from Jerusalem, "the city of peace". What irony!

Take another potent example of this principle, the history of world powers. In the book of Daniel chapter 7, we have revealed in astonishing details the history, the methods and principles of world powers from the time of Babylon till the 2nd Coming of Christ. *God shows from this demonstration that force/violence never establishes peace but only more violence. In this prophecy we find a tremendous power (Babylon) arise on the world scene, wielding the sword. She conquers all by the sword, violence and compelling power. She beats all dissenters and rebels into submission through the deterrence of the executing sword. This notwithstanding, Babylon falls to a less powerful nation, Persia, who managed to prey on Babylon's weakness to bring it down. But by what method did Persia gain control of the world? By the sword! By Christ's principle that whoever takes the sword dies by it, we can deduce that those who win by violence, force and the sword must maintain it through a bigger violence, larger force and a huge sword.


Persia also falls to another weaker power, Greece but as usual, through the same principle and method of conquest--violence, force, the sword and compulsion. Greece also falls to Rome through the same mechanism of violence over violence. Rome goes through five stages of "diverse" governmental systems: the Imperial System, 'Monarchical Democracy', Papal Church-State, Democracy-Republicanism and Conglomerate One World Government. However, the underlying principle of all these world powers is the use of the sword, violence, force and compulsion to maintain law and order and to establish peace. We don't need a rocket scientist to tell us that peace obtained through the sword doesn't and won’t last. But there is one governmental principle that lasts. At the end of Daniel chapter 7, God shows another power which conquers all the preceding powers and remains forever. Daniel describes it this way, "I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven!... Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, and his kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed" (Dan 7:13,14). How come this power of the "Son of Man" would never be destroyed by another power? The traditional interpretation has been that it is because God is omnipotent, therefore when He crushes all the world powers by His limitless compelling power, violence and force, there will be left no one to ever challenge God again. But is this what the principle of the sword teaches us about God's government? A big no. God demonstrates through history that not even His omnipotent power could establish peace through force, violence and compelling power. If He could, then rebellion would not have occurred in the first place, and there would have been no need for God, man and angels to suffer all these heartaches for more than 6000 years.



Why does the kingdom of the "Son of Man" lasts forever? This is it, it operates on an opposite principle to all the powers that we have seen in history. He never uses the sword, force, nor compelling power. His is the "Sword of the Spirit"--TRUTH, LOVE AND FREEDOM. In this kingdom, the King and His "servants" present the truth in love and leave people free to receive or reject it. Instead of force, freedom; instead of killing His opponents, He dies in their place; instead of compelling His subjects to submit, He transforms and melts their hardened hearts by the revelation of His never changing love for them. And for those who will never choose to be conformed to His image, He leaves free to "depart from His presence" and to _"Cry to the rocks and mountains to hide them"_. However know that to depart from God means death. _"...Yes, woe to them when I depart from them!"_ (Hosea 9:12). Is it any co-incidence that the world powers were represented by ferocious wild beasts-- Lion, Bear, Leopard and Dragon-- whereas the "Son of Man" is described with a LAMB, oh not only that but, a LAMB SLAIN?_ How much threat does a lamb pose amidst the lion, bear or dragon much less a slain lamb? The contrast is powerful. *It is to show the contrast between the principles upon which the two systems operate, the difference between FORCE, VIOLENCE, COMPELLING POWER AND THAT OF LOVE, TRUTH AND FREEDOM. It is to drive home the truth that the sword never establishes peace but perpetuates it. It shows that LOVE and FORCE are incompatible. This is clearly revealed by the extracts below:


"The earth was dark through misapprehension of God. That the gloomy shadows might be lightened, that the world might be brought back to God, Satan's deceptive power was to be broken. This could not be done by force. The exercise of force is contrary to the principles of God's government; He desires only the service of love; and love cannot be commanded; it cannot be won by force or authority*. Only by love is love awakened. To know God is to love Him; *His character must be manifested in contrast to the character of Satan" . "'Whereunto,' asked Christ, 'shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?' Mark 4:30. *He could not employ the kingdoms of the world as a similitude*. In society He found nothing with which to compare it. *Earthly kingdoms rule by the ascendancy of physical power; but from Christ's kingdom every carnal weapon, every instrument of coercion, is banished. " In "the kingdom of Christ" the "principles of development are the OPPOSITE of those that rule the kingdoms of this world. Earthly governments prevail by physical force; they maintain their dominion by war; but the founder of the new kingdom is the Prince of peace. The Holy Spirit represents worldly kingdoms under the symbol of fierce beasts of prey; but Christ is "the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." John 1:29. In his plan of government there is no employment of brute force to compel the conscience. The Jews looked for the kingdom of God to be established in the same way as the kingdoms of the world. To promote righteousness they resorted to external measures. They devised methods and plans. But Christ implants a principle. By implanting truth and righteousness, He counterworks error and sin. So we see clearly the difference between the two opposing principles. God's government never uses the principles, methods or ways of earthly powers. His is true love and freedom. T*his is how come an omnipotent God who creates by His word and sustains the entire universe by the word of His mouth could not put down Lucifer's and Adam's rebellion by His omnipotent might*. He suffers for more than 6000 years of earth's history and perhaps zillions of years in bearing with Lucifer in heaven. This is the demonstration of true love, and since God is love, and love suffers long, God has suffered for all these long years, patiently waiting till His subjects will learn the truth that MIGHT NEVER ESTABLISHES RIGHT NOR PEACE!

God could have destroyed Satan and his sympathizers as easily as one can cast a pebble to the earth; but He did not do this. Rebellion was not to be overcome by force. Compelling power is found only under Satan's government. The Lord's principles are not of this order. His authority rests upon goodness, mercy, and love; and the presentation of these principles is the means to be used. God's government is moral, and *truth and love are to be the prevailing power. Unfortunately, majority of the world's inhabitants have not learnt this yet, and for their sake Christ delays His coming until _"God's servants are sealed in their foreheads"_ with the knowledge of God's principles, methods and ways in contrast to Satan and the World's principles of governance. It is so sad that just like the Jews who wanted to establish God's kingdom using Man and Satan's methods, Religions and the Christian world have been repeating and will repeat the same error. Many read the scriptures and all they understand from them is the use of might to put down rebellion, they don't see any other alternative than that*. O, man! How much more successful has the Adversary been in deceiving "the whole world"?(Rev 12:9; 13:8).



For the majority of Christians, they are waiting for the 2nd coming of Christ where He would use a larger compelling power, violence and force to wipe out His enemies from existence. This is no different from the Jew’s expectation of the mission of their prophesied messiah. They were disappointed and I believe with all my heart that these Christians and religionists will likewise be disappointed. Why am I so sure? It is because “Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!”(Heb. 13:8). When Israel failed to learn the ways and methods of God, they could not enter into His rest in the earthly Canaan. (Heb. 3:13-19). If Christians fail to learn God’s ways and methods, they likewise will not enter into God’s rest in the heavenly Canaan. The typology is clear enough. It is time to be settled in the knowledge of God as revealed by Christ in His life and death. God is waiting for us to know His methods . "Thus says the LORD: 'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,' says the LORD."_ (Jer. 9:23,24).  God wins in the end, but it is "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts." (Zech. 4:6). 

Stop violence !

HIGHLIGHT ON PURPOSE, MONEY AND ANOINTING


When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable – Dr. Myles Munroe

THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF ANYTHING:
1. When purpose is not understood, abuse is inevitable
2. When purpose is not understood, pursuit is neither exciting nor enthusiastic
3. When purpose is not understood, misuse and wastage are unavoidable
4. When purpose is not understood, misconceptions are unavoidable

FACTS REGARDING MONEY:
1. Money is neutral – its goodness or badness is determined by its possessor; money in the hands of a good person will do good but money in the hands of an evil person will do evil
2. Money in the hands of a good person will make him a better person but money in the hands of a bad person will make him a worse person
3. Plenty is more impactful than poverty; more good is done with money than without money
4. The presence of money does not make a person rich and the absence of money does not make a person poor – true riches is a combination of mentality (wisdom), integrity (character) and spirituality
A person with mentality (wisdom), integrity (character) and spirituality may not have money presently but it is only a matter of time, money will surely come.
5. The most important thing about money is not the possession of it but the application of it; it is not the realisation of it but the utilisation of it
6. What is dangerous about money is not man possessing money but money possessing man, it is not man having money but money having man, it is not man controlling money but money controlling man
7. You can serve God with money but you cannot serve God and money (Matt. 6:24; Josh. 24:15)

WHAT PURPOSE IS MONEY DESIGNED TO FULFIL IN THE LIFE OF THE CHILD OF GOD?
1. The establishment of personal welfare and comfort (1Tim. 6:17b; 3John 1:2)
God is interested in the personal welfare and comfort of His people
WHY GOD IS INTERESTED IN THE WELFARE OF HIS PEOPLE:
1a. So that they do not bring shame and reproach to His Name through lack and scarcity (Joel 2:26-27; Isa. 61:9)
1b. So that they do not violate His Word through begging and borrowing to survive (Ps. 37:25-26; Deut. 15:6; 28:12)
1c. So that they are not distracted from truly worshipping and serving God because of lack (Joel 2:26)

2. The advertisement of the goodness of God in the life of the child of God (Isa. 61:9; Matt. 5:14,16)
The Blessing is a dressing
Your blessing is more audible than your speaking
The voice of your blessing is stronger than the voice of your speech
WHAT GOD WANTS TO ACHIEVE WITH THE ADVERTISEMENT OF HIS GOODNESS:
2a. Bringing the world to the understanding of the goodness of God
2b. Changing the minds and the opinions of the world regarding the character of God (Zech. 8:12,20-21)
2c. Bringing lives unto surrender to the Lordship of God (Zech. 8:12, 23)

3. The fulfilment of Kingdom obligations and impact (John 3:16; 2Cor. 8:1-5,8; Matt. 6:21; Deut. 16:17; Ps. 96:8; Zech. 1:17; Hag. 2:6-8; Luke 7:3-6)
A major proof of love for God is giving to God (John 3:16; 2Cor. 8:1-5)
Love is not sincere if it does not give
HOW TO MAKE INPUT AND IMPACT IN GOD’S KINGDOM WITH OUR RESOURCES:
3a. Through worshipping God with our offerings and tithes (Deut. 16:17; Ps. 96:8)
3b. Through extending His Kingdom with our resources (Zech. 1:17)
3c. Through the building of sanctuaries for His Worship (Hag. 2:6-8; Luke 7:3-6)
Income is for impact!

4. The establishment of the voice and influence of the Church (Eccl. 9:14-16; Matt. 27:57-58)
Whatever steals your money steals your voice and when you don’t have a voice, you may have what to say but nobody is interested to hear

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF VOICE AND INFLUENCE FOR THE CHURCH?
4a. Making the Church and her members both a voice and a force to reckon with in society (Matt. 27:57-58)
4b. Making the Church and her members to compel both the attention and the submission of the influential in the society (Matt. 27:57-58)
4c. Making the Church and her members to be able to boldly defend the cause of the Kingdom before earthly powers and authorities

5. The fulfilment of ministry to the less privileged (Jam. 1:27; Prov. 19:17; Matt. 25:41-43)
WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF MINISTRY TO THE LESS PRIVILEGED?
5a. Ministry to the challenged (Job 29:15; Luke 10:30-34)

5d. Ministry to the oppressed (Isa. 45:1-3,13)

6. The establishment of societal and generational impact (Matt. 5:16; Acts 9:36; 1Tim. 6:17-18)
This is using money to do things that positively impact society

CATEGORIES OF SOCIETAL AND GENERATIONAL IMPACT:
6a. Alleviating the challenges of society by the provision of services that touch lives positively
(Gen. 26:15,18; John 4:6-7; Acts 19:9)

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF SOCIETAL AND GENERATIONAL IMPACT:
I. Abraham dug wells for community use (Gen. 26:15,18)
II. Jacob also dug a well for community use (John 4:6-7)
III. Tyrannus had a school and opened it for the use of the Gospel (Acts 19:9)
6b. Establishing livelihood for multitudes through providing institutions or organisations that employ multitudes (Gen. 18:19; 14:14; 26:13-14, 16; Job 1:1-3)
6c. Modelling organisational and institutional excellence for society (Matt. 5:14)

COUNSEL:
1. Don’t just try to have money, try to possess a Godly and a quality vision for money (Gen. 13:14-15)

2. Never allow money to take the place of God in your life (Matt. 6:24; Mark 8:36-37)

PRAYERS:
Father, I receive the vision, Your own vision for money; I receive it Lord

Father, You are the Owner of my life, take Your place in my life. I refuse for anything or anybody to take Your place in my life Lord in Jesus’ Name

Father, I come before You today and ask for a Godly vision for financial resources, in Jesus’ Name

VALENTINE SPECIAL :- THE CHURCH & THE VALENTINE

OPENING STORY

This preacher was driving home one night with his wife and two daughters in the car. It was dark, raining and intensely so and the pastor could hardly see past his headlights. On the way he had to drive over a huge bridge. There were posted signs "DO NOT PICK UP HITCH-HIKERS." By the base of the bridge, there was an institution for the criminally
insane and sometimes people would escape from it and try to catch a ride. On this night, as the pastor slowly approached the bridge, a man suddenly appeared in the headlights.

He was soaked, standing in the middle of the road, frantically waving his shirt over his head and screaming. The preacher's wife cautioned her husband , "Oh please don't stop, try to drive around him!"

 Car was too close, the man was unavoidable, except to stop or kill him. As soon as the Pastor stopped, the man slapped his hand down on the hood of the car and continued screaming, at the top of his lungs, unabated. The preacher looked over at his wife and said to lock the door after him and not to unlock it until he returned. His family understandably perturbed and crying, pleaded with him not to get out of the car.

He opened the door and stepped outside. He was immediately soaked from the rain.As he approached the  the man, all of a sudden he could make out what the man was screaming, "THE BRIDGE IS OUT! THE BRIDGE IS OUT! A BUS LOAD OF KIDS JUST WENT OVER!" As these words registered in the pastor's mind, he looked back in the car at his wife and two daughters. He wrapped his arm around the man and wept in gratitude. The preacher stood there with the man for the next half-hour in the middle of the road, waving his jacket above his head screaming to warn other commuters.

Stop "THE BRIDGE IS OUT! THE BRIDGE IS OUT!" For a lost and a dying world, "THE BRIDGE IS OUT!"

For a people heading to a Christless Eternity,"THE BRIDGE IS OUT!" where are the men and the women who will stand in the middle of the road and forbid people to perish ? HELL HAS OPENED IT'S MOUTH WIDE AND MANY ARE SPEEDING INTO IT. Where are those who will stand in the gap, on the streets, the highways and the byways to forbid multitudes with the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, to warn others from going to such a horrible place ? Remember JESUS Loves us all and wants nothing, absolutely nothing but that we be saved .If you can, please share this message to all your friends and enemies, if any, both Saved and unsaved. THE BRIDGE IS OUT.! And Time is Running Out.If you choose not to share nothing will happen. It just won't hurt to encourage one another.

ORIGIN AND ESSENCE OF VALENTINE DAY
During the third century, an oppressive Roman Emperor called Emperor Claudius II had made it a capital punishment (death) to worship and serve Christ. He had decreed the Romans to serve and worship his gods, and deprived the young Roman soldiers of getting married. But an elderly Christian had stood his ground for his faith and had insisted on serving Jesus Christ and preaching the love of God to the young soldiers. This was considered treason against the government. He was arrested, sentenced to death and jailed. In the last weeks of his life in the prison, the jailer (prison commander) observed that he was very learned and possessed very good Christian character, brought his blind daughter to him to be giving her lessons. He taught her about God and told her many Roman histories and stories from the Bible. He taught her the love of God. The blind girl got so used to the elderly Christian prisoner. On his last night he left a note for Julia, the blind girl, encouraging her to love God and serve Him. And ending the note, he wrote: "From your Valentine". His death sentence was carried out the next day, February 14, 270 A.D. The name of this martyr was Valentinus, a man who died for standing for the Preaching of the Christ and teaching people about the love of God. So, for his love for God, he was regarded as 'Saint'.

Archaeologists have unearthed a Roman catacomb; an ancient church dedicated to Saint Valentine. During 496 AD, the Pope marked February 14 as celebration in honor of his martyrdom.

February 14, is known as Valentine Day. But the essence of Valentine Day historically was a celebration in honor of the martyrdom of a devoted preacher, Valentinus, who stood on his faith in Christ against the devilish idolatry decrees of a Godless Emperor. He preached Christ to the Roman soldiers and spread the love for God and humanity when it was a crime to do so. The day he was martyred was declared "Valentine Day". February 14, 270 AD.

However, the devil has rewritten history today. All over the world, the history has successfully been erased and rewritten the way the devil wanted. The reason for the DAY has been blotted out from people's memory and a minor aspect of the whole story had been blown beyond proportion. The little card note Valentinus had left behind for Julia, her young beloved convert, whom she taught, preached to and prayed for, had ended with: "From Your Valentine".

On February 14, in the year 270.AD, somebody died for Christ and is now in Heaven, but on February 14, 2018, several people will die spiritual death. The Destinies of several young men and girls will be aborted today, because the devil had changed the reason for the Valentine Day. He had rubbed off living and dying for Christ and replaced it with living and dying on the bed of immorality.

Today, many young girls and ladies will give their virginity away for a gift of phones, ipads, bags, clothes, and even valueless gifts as little as chocolate, sweet, fried chickens and plates of pepper-soup and salad.Evening of this year Feb 14, demons of fornication and adultery will invade our streets and storm our night clubs and hotels to take register of those who are dying soon of STDs, including new candidates who are going to harbor HIV and AIDS.

On Feb 14 this year, forces of evil are coming down on adulterated Valentine Day to possess people with the spirit of Rape and drug abuse. Imagine the amount of pregnancy preventive drugs and materials that shall be sold. Harlots will sell today. There will be Christian backsliders today. ALL BECAUSE SOME GLORIOUS DESTINIES WILL BE ABORTED ON VALENTINE DAY.

The story of Reuben, Genesis 35:21-22a
21Then Israel journeyed and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Eder. 22And it happened, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine; and Israel heard about it.

A strange spirit came upon Reuben, the first born of Jacob, and he went and sleep with his father's young wife. Israel heard about it and said nothing. Nothing was heard about it again for many years, and we never heard that Reuben asked for forgiveness or repented or became sober about it and the matter died just like that. Really? So many events came over it, nobody mentioned it again. He went with the rest Jacob's children to Egypt; he saw the glories of Egypt. He was welcomed into the palace of Joseph and ate with him in the royal palace. He grew and had many children and everything was going fine for him till the day their father would say the last prayers for them and give them his final decree. At the point of death, whatever he said was final for life.

He gathered them together for the final blessing and began to bless them all. But he began with Reuben, the first son, who was to be the heir who should carry the highest blessings among the children. The record was opened to his long forgotten atrocity. He thought it had been swept under the carpet. He thought he was smart and he had had a simple fun. But his father opened his mouth for his final blessing and said: Genesis 49:3-4 (NKJV) 3“Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength, The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power. Four unstable as water, you shall not excel, Because you went up to your father’s bed; Then you defiled it—He went up to my couch.

Though he was the beginning of Jacob's strength, he was supposed to be an epitome of Excellency of dignity and power. He was to be naturally blessed and was born to be a man of natural dignity and power, but....HIS DESTINY WAS ABORTED the day he had "fun" with his father's young wife. So, his own verdict was: "You shall not Excel" from a man who was anointed to proclaim a final verdict on the Sons of Israel. Reuben was destined to be a royal dignified personality above his siblings, but for that single night of 'fun' with that woman. Many people will have a lot of lustful funs on Feb 14, and wake up Feb 15 morning as normal, but the truth is: long after a very hot pressing iron had been disconnected from the power source; it would still be hot for a while, until it begins to grow cold. Some power cable would be disconnected from the power source of some people on Feb 14. Some young men and women will place their entire life virtues and destinies in the hand of marine agents that night.

Feb 14 evening is a 'Night of Fun', when many men and ladies will slaughter their destinies on the bed of lustful pleasure. By Feb 15 morning it is done! Destiny Auctioned to a young man or a lady whose future has been mortgaged to the devil. If Joseph had had a fun with Potiphar’s wife, he would never have got to the palace to see the type of Glory he saw. He escaped that trap that would have aborted his destiny on which so many lives in Egypt and Canaan land, including the lives of his generation unborn depended upon.

There is a great story in Proverbs 7:6-27. It is a sad story of a young man on his own "Valentine Night". He had thought he wanted to have a fun that night, he had thought he wanted to enjoy himself, but crashed his future in a night of fun.

Proverbs 7:21-23
21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. 22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, 23 Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare,  He did not know it would cost his life.

VALENTINE IN CHURCH
We grew up caught in the web of "Valentine day".We got saved and learnt Valentines not Biblical. Why is today's church indirectly celebrating Valentine?  On Valentine's Day, church members are told to come to church dressed in Red and White. This seems like confusion. THE CHURCH IN THE WORLD AND THE WORLD IN THE CHURCH. Do we really need to stand at the altar and announce dat it's a day of love(14th February) and then to sound a bit religious at the end, the person making d announcement or whatever concludes by saying, "for God so love the world... bla bla.

Why not allow this issue of Valentine to rest in church? In d early church, it was never like this. In a bid to "celebrating love the Christian way", the heathen festival is indirectly revived n that? right inside d church and that same day, gosh! Beloved of God, pls is this. not confusion in church? On Val's day, the church of God is dressed in red n white. Am confused here pls. Where is the old time religion?

I guess this view is annoying many already, but think about these things. Hellooo !church of God, pls wake up and defend the Gospel. What's all these? Body of Christ ,wake up. Must d church learn, teach and showcase her "love" just like the world does? On V. Day? Imagine the competition the church n d world are into on every "Valentines Day".To the believer, God kind of love is unconditional. It's a culture. A way of life. A tradition. It does not have a season n time. It's timeless. Hmmmm. Modernity has blinded the church . It's well.
