How to Serve God by Prayers

There are so many ways in which one can key into and serve God effectively and productively. Today in this post, I will be talking on serving God by prayers.

God is in need of servers, men and women who can partner with Him in advancing His kingdom on earth. He has enough worshipers already.

God is in need of partners, servers are partners, they take the work of the kingdom to heart and they do it with all their hearts.

One very potent ways we can become server or partner with God is by engaging in kingdom promoting prayers on our own.

Hear what the scripture says in:

Psm. 102:13-14:
You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, And show favor to her dust.

God will favor them because they first favored the cause of Zion which is the Church.

So when you engage in praying for the advancements of His Church, He advances your life.

Mat. 6:33:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.. in prayers.

Therefore, below are some very potent prayer points for you to engage in serving God by prayers.

1. Father, in the name of Jesus, empower every member of this local Church with the grace and unction from above to enable us seek first your kingdom and your righteousness so that all other things shall be added unto us – Matt. 6:33.

Encounter with Destiny through Praise!

Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him (Psalms 67:5-7).

We discover from scriptures that every child of God has an enviable destiny in Christ. We also understand from scriptures that every encounter with the Word is an encounter with destiny.

However, it is important to know that high praise, among others, is a key facilitator of our access to God’s Word which in turn guarantees our access to a world of exploits. This is because wild praise usually provokes ‘wild’ interventions. As it is written:

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord (Psalms 149:6-9).

This is why no prophetic Word will ever see the light of the day without praise. It is also written: Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? (Exodus 15:11).

From the above scripture, ‘fearful in praises’ connotes wild praise. It is our “fearful praises” that provokes the fearful presence of God and that in turn guarantees the delivery of our fearful blessings. That means when we give God wild praises, we are entitled to His strange order of blessings that will make the world to fear Him.

Again, it is important to know that the intensity of our praises determines the degree and speed to which God responds to us. Remember, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap. When we sow casual praise, we access casual blessings. On the contrary, when we sow fearful praise seed, we provoke fearful blessings on our lives.

That is why the devil discourages us from giving God high praises in order to rob us of the treasures that await us in it. Therefore, we must get smarter than him by engaging the mystery of high praises with the whole of our hearts and might, for the speedy delivery of our inheritance in redemption.

A graphic picture of a wild kind of praise was painted in scriptures at the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. The Bible says: Multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest (Matthew 21:9).

This is the wildest praise ever recorded in scriptures. The people threw their garments on the floor, carried palm fronds as they shouted hosanna in the highest. Jesus, in turn, responded to their wild praise by casting out all them that sold, bought in the temple, overthrowing the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves(Matthew 21:9-12).

We must understand that when we engage in wild praise, God steps into our affairs with all the forces of heaven to restore our dignity. Remember, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost and Jesus is same yesterday, today and forever. Thus, when we engage in wild praises, He will do same for us.

Therefore, Praise is a spiritual platform for the strange works and acts of God in the lives of His people. This is why those who flow in praise don’t run out of signs and wonders, because what praise does is to bring God to bear in our lives and situations, thereby provoking our desired change.

In addition, the garment of praise brings us into favour with the King of kings. Remember, when Esther put on her royal apparel, she was favoured by the king. Also, when Herodias’ daughter danced to please the king, she secured divine favour such that Herod gave her an open cheque to ask anything, even to the half of his kingdom and it would be done. Likewise, whenever we dance our way into God’s heart, we provoke divine favour (2 Samuel 6:16, 23; Mark 6:22-23).

We also discover from scriptures that everyone’s future is a function of the favour at work in his life. However, it takes high praises to be highly favoured. According to Paul, we can only be what God wants us to be by His grace.

But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Therefore, to have a glorious destiny is all a function of God’s favour. However, when God’s favour is withdrawn, destiny starts going down. For instance, David, the praise giant, who praised God seven times a day said:

Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled (Psalms 30:7).

‘Stand strong’ in the above scripture means ‘to stand out’. The scripture records that David did not only praise God seven times a day, he danced with the whole of his might to connect with the favour of God. No wonder he operated in the realm of high-level favour all his life. Therefore, we must praise and thank God at all times like David, if we want to experience His order of divine favour, the adversaries notwithstanding (Psalms 34:1; 35:7 119:164; 1 Samuel 16:13; 2 Samuel 5:4).

Having established that praise guarantees our access to our glorious destiny in Christ Jesus, let’s examine four other ways through which we can encounter Destiny.

Through direct divine encounter: This means God showing up to show us what is in store for us. For instance, God revealed Himself directly to Abraham at seventy-five years and said: …Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed (Genesis 12:1-3).

Also, God revealed Himself to Isaac, and instructed him not to go to Egypt but to dwell in Gerar. When Isaac obeyed God, he prospered despite the severity of the famine. He moved forward in that land, became strong, very great and the Philistines envied him (Genesis 26:12-14).

Thus, this proves that divine encounter unveils our destinies to us but because God inhabits the praises of His people, He will only show up to a praiseful soul.

Heavenly Vision: We must understand that we can only flow in vision when we make praise our lifesyle. Remember, Paul the Apostle who was not disobedient to the heavenly vision admonished us to Rejoice in the lord always and again I say rejoice. That means he was able to access vision because of his lifestyle of thanksgiving and praise (Philippians 4:4; Acts 26:19).

Therefore, God’s plan will remain elusive until we are able to praise our way into His presence where He unveils the path of life. As it is written: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore (Psalms 16:11).

Rhema: This means the voice God. We must understand that this is the spiritual womb that births great destinies. However, it takes a joyful heart to connect with it. As it is written: Blessed are they that hear the joyful sound…. (Psalms 89:15).

It takes a ‘song- full’ believer to access the voice of the Lord; therefore, we must be ‘song -full’. However, it is important to know that praise is one of the vital tools that guarantee our unlimited access into God’s Word (revelation). This means, we must celebrate and jubilate before the Lord so that He will cause His voice to be heard. It is written:

Ye shall have a song, as in the night [when] a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of [his] anger, and [with] the flame of a devouring fire, [with] scattering, and tempest, and hailstone (Isaiah 30:29-30).

The Revelation Platform: As it is written: Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3).

We must understand that, only those who flow in joy and praise access revelation, which is the master custodian of destiny. That is why it is revelation that defines the limit of every destiny. Moreover, the revelation we operate with determines our level of possessions in the Kingdom. We understand from the scripture that we have an inheritance of power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory and blessing in Christ. However, every of our inheritance answers absolutely to revelation and revelation answers to high praises.

No doubt, without a praiseful lifestyle our destinies will be truncated. We have stayed with that challenge long enough. Therefore, we are long overdue for an escape. The good news is that God still does fearful things through high praises today. It is therefore wisdom to be praiseful, not ‘complainful’ nor ‘murmurful’.

We must learn to give God the wildest praise to qualify for divine encounters; for in His presence, there is fullness of joy and that is where He shows us the path of life (Psalms 22:3). As we do this, everything that is against our glorious destiny in Christ shall be destroyed in Jesus’ name. Remain ever blessed!

You are blessed!

How To Engage the Weapons of Resistance Against Satan

In Luke chapter 4, the devil came to Jesus, knowing He was hungry after forty days fasting, and said to Him, “Turn these stones into bread.” Jesus didn’t just tell him, “Satan keep quiet.” No! that’s not how to resist the devil.

There is a weapon of resistance at your disposal, which Jesus Himself used. He said to Satan, “It is written…” Men who have God’s Word in them, and are smart to release it from their mouth in faith, are men who will keep the devil off their shores.

After Jesus said “It is written…”, the devil had to look for something else to do. The realm of “It is written…” is a realm where he could not proceed any further. This is the language of resistance, the force the devil cannot withstand. He will always bow to it. When Jesus spoke those words in faith, the devil couldn’t proceed any further.

There are many areas in which the devil is trying to harass you. The way to stop him is by bringing out God’s Word from your heart, such Word that stands against his evil plans.

By the time the devil came to Jesus the second time, once again Jesus said, “It is written…” He didn’t pray, neither was there anyone around with whom He could pray a prayer of agreement.

The third time the devil came in his usual resilience and Jesus gave it to him again, “It is written…” This time, the devil concluded, “There is nothing I can do with this man.”

And Luke 4:13 says: And when the devil had ended as the temptation, he departed from him (Jesus) for a season.

A man who has value for God’s Word will earn great respect for himself. He will be respected in the kingdom of darkness. We are not talking about religion, we are talking about vibrant Christian living!

Every prayer that is void of God’s Word cannot do anything to the devil. If Satan is threatening you with the fear of death, all you need to do is say, “It is written, they that serve God shall have the number of their days fulfilled. Satan, your threat of death over my life cannot hold. I am of God and I have overcome you. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.”

The devil quickly leaves men who speak that kind of language. When he is making a list of people he cannot touch, he will add their own – “Jesus I know, Paul I know… (and he will include your name)”.

When you declare “It is written…”,let it come from a depth where doubt has no access – from the depth of your heart. It’s time to do what Jesus did. All the time you spend running around, looking for people to help you, I wish you could spend it with God’s Word.

Locate what guarantees your triumph in the battle you’re facing. That’s all you need. Just locate the right Word and stand on it. The devil must surely how, because the Word of God is that Light that shines in darkness and darkness has no answer to it (John 1:5).

The more darkness there is, the more prominently light shines. This is why the devil has no answer to light. The devil cannot hang around your life, when God’s Word reigns supreme there. All you need to do therefore, is get yourself drunk with God’s Word, be ready any day to release “It is written…”

Don’t every sit down with trouble, expose it. Until you get to this point in any battleground, the devil stands to have whatever he wants. True victory is making it in the face of your enemy, not behind him. There is nothing more exciting than your enemy seeing you make progress.

The man of God Fred K.C. Price once told of how he was paying tithes and offerings and yet was getting poorer and poorer. There are many Christians like that today, who since they got to know about God and giving, have never experienced any financial miracle!

One day, however, Fred Price made a discovery. Men who make enquiries make discoveries. He discovered from God’s Word that the mere fact that you’re doing the right thing does not mean you will always have results, because there is one called the adversary. He is against you. He is your arch-enemy. He is out to frustrate you and make you disbelieve God.

Friend, what you need is to know what God says and use it to stand against Satan. Why should a man be paying tithes and giving offerings and his life is not improving? If God is not a liar, the man should see results!

The devil is the thief! If you don’t resist him, steadfastly, he will keep stealing, killing and destroying! You can walk out on the devil!

How Satan Uses Dreams to Trap People's Destiny

Do you know that about eighty percent of Christians’ troubles come through dreams? They tell you such things like “Yesterday, I slept and I saw my son sick, I saw myself being chased by a masquerades etc”

When you try to encourage that person, telling him that the faith we have in the finished work of Calvary is enough to address such dreams. He or she will tell you, “No, what ‘God’ showed me in the dream was different from that!”

The bible says: For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he…….. Prov. 23:7

You are very free to dream, but, what are you dreaming? Remember, the image you form, is what you will become soonest. Therefore, mind what you dream and believe in.

Friend, men who make things happen are men of confidence. It takes confidence for you to have communion with God. God said you are a creature of value. He said you shall be the head and not the tail. This is the truth. He said you will have dominion on the earth, you will be in charge.

Sickness cannot threaten you. Fear cannot harass you. You will do the things He tells you to do, and He will make your way prosperous, and you will have good success (Joshua 1:8, Deuteronomy 28). In any of these promises, God didn’t say He will do all that if you dream in the night!

Beware of the devil’s night traps. That’s what I call all those funny dreams many claims to have and believe that they are from God. They are nothing but the devil’s snares, to deceive the very elect.

When we were young, we used to hunt for games. What we usually did was to set traps in the evenings for the animals. Come night time, they always get caught in the traps! They don’t ever get caught in the day time, so we set our traps for the night-time, when their vision is next to nil.

This is how Satan sets traps for people through dreams. Many have been trapped into untimely deaths, accidents and various misfortunes through dreams. The devil presents them with pictures that instill fear in them.

When what they feared now comes to pass, you hear them say, “You see! ‘God’ showed me this thing in the dream! When I dream, it always comes to pass exactly as I saw it!” Beware of dreams!

The Bible said your old men shall dream dreams. Until you’re old, you’re not permitted to dream dreams.

At 75 Abraham saw a vision. The Bible says your young men shall see visions. So, at 75, you’re still a young man. What are you doing with dreams? They are nothing but snares. Be awake!

How to Dream Bible Dreams
We are not just called to go to bed and dream after a heavy dinner, but to dream dreams of a great future that agree with God’s plans for our lives. To be dreamless is to be doomed!

The Word, the Bible, is God’s dream bank (His dream for a triumphant living), from where you can draw health, peace, success, victory, etc.
I am not talking about day-dreaming! I am talking about Bible-dreaming. I am not talking about nightmares; I am talking about light from heaven dawning on your soul.

I never had a problem starting my home, because I discovered in God’s dream bank, “It is not good for man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). So, God said “I will make a help meet to make life better for him.

” This makes it obvious that God did not design marriage to make life worse for the man. So, all that “for better for worse, in sickness and in health,” etc, which people recite as marriage vows is unscriptural! It is a curse!

Tradition is an enemy of progress and a destroyer of destinies! As long as your dream has its root in the Word of God, it has a future. The Bible is God’s dream book for man. Any dream outside it is a trap!

Draw your dreams from “The Book”
I had always known I was going to have plenty of money. How? From “The Book”. Job 22:22-25 says: Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.

If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up; thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.

Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.

Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defense, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.

I am glad to let you know I have never borrowed and I’m never going to, till I die. I am on the giving side. This is my dream.

I see a very prosperous future for myself. From where? From “The Book.” This is not just day-dreaming. Your dream must have its roots in the Bible, or it has no future. No matter your calling in life, the Bible is God’s dream book.

I caught a dream of old age. God said “the number of your days I will fulfill.” And in case you don’t know the number, He said, “With long life will I satisfy you” (Psalms 91:16).

Jacob was 147 years old and Joshua was 110. There were patriarchs under the Old Testament. I said to myself, “If the ministration of death be so glorious, how much more shall the ministration of the spirit be?”
Friend, I caught a dream of long life! If you have the same dream, you will enjoy the same longevity.

Bible dreams are sealed with the Blood of Jesus and tried in fire seven times. Whatever you see from Genesis to Malachi, from Matthew to Revelations, is available for your possession. This is what it takes to be restored to honor and dignity.

For example, for everyone serving God, His dream forbids that you be barren or suffer miscarriage. It forbids that you carry any sickness and disease about. It forbids that you be crushed by the enemy in death (Exodus 23:23-25, Deuteronomy 7:14). A dream makes a winner. A dream makes a ruler. A dream determines a destiny.

In 1984, our congregation was still under 40, but I saw in Deuteronomy 28:1 that if I will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord and do what He tells me, God would set me on high above all nations of the earth. Not above my nation, but above all nations.

Immediately, I discovered this, I knew I was not programmed for ‘local championship.’ I saw that I was an international personality, who was not going to die as a person, but as an institution! Even when there was no comeliness nor form that anybody should desire me.

Dream Bible dreams! What you see today, will determine what you become tomorrow.

God says, “One thing is needful.” Sit down and catch a dream. Any dream you catch from the Bible will lighten your burdens for you.

I caught a dream of divine health. I saw in the Bible that “He himself took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses.” So, I knew I can never be a victim of sickness, because His dream for me is void of sickness.

In god’s magic formula for success, a dream is the number one requirement. There must be a dream, before one can begin to talk about fulfillment in life.
I would like you to know that triumph is your destiny, and God is concerned when you are dying under the weight of Satan’s afflictions. All you need to know is how to play your covenant cards, to excel and prevail over life’s circumstances that may rise up against you.

There are people today, who are obviously working, but who have nothing to show for it. Every morning, they are up and out on the streets, yet, such people just can’t locate what life has to offer them. Why? They lack a dream.

Right now, I see God descend upon you with a dream that will beautify your life and destiny! Friend, we live in a dreamer’s world. Dreamers reign on this planet earth. Without an authentic dream, you don’t have a future. The Bible is God’s dream bank, from where you can design your destiny and discover your future. Whatever you see in it is guaranteed as a dream that must come to pass.

Many years ago, I saw from God’s Word that redemption is not limited to the soul, but covers the body (3 John 1:2). God is just as concerned about my physical life as He is about my spiritual life.

I discovered also from God’s Word that when Jesus was being beaten (before He went to the cross); my body was rescued from pains, sicknesses and diseases. Except you can ‘unbeat’ Him and remove the stripes from His body, nobody can succeed in placing sickness on me. I came out with a dream – I cannot be sick!

This is how you enter into covenant Bible dreams. They come through a discovery, an embracing of the truth, and an application of its demands.

I have become an eternal enemy of sickness. Stop announcing sickness! I see sickness as a devil that must be cast out. I see my body as the temple of the Living God, so my dream for a healthy life is sealed.

Friend, none of my dreams have failed so far. The most authentic dreams any man can every dream are Bible-backed ones – revelation imparted dreams! They never fail!

The devil will not deceive you anymore! You’ll no longer be caught in his ‘night traps,’ in Jesus’ name.

How to Overcome Depression!

The dictionary meaning of depression says it is a feeling of utter hopelessness, despondency, self-disgust and loss of perspective! It is a mood swing into which a man is cast. Depression is a killer – a silent killer indeed.


Who is the author? – Satan, the enemy! Depression chokes the brain! It robs the mind! (Luke 8:14). It blinds the mind! (2 Corinthians 4:4). It is a very destructive weapon of the enemy. It must be fought! It is a destroyer! It makes victims of men.

It enters into the mind to block it from the light of the glorious gospel. It chokes the Word and makes the mind unproductive.

When you are depressed, your access to God’s presence is blocked (Psalm 100:1-5). Depression disconnects you from the Father. It destroys your harvest. If the devil can get you depressed any day, he has spoilt your day.
Depression brings a man under a curse (Deuteronomy 28:47-48). It is the worst enemy of your destiny.

Depression retards your flight to your high places, as your joy is cut off (Habakkuk 3:17-19). Satan brings cares, worries and anxieties to keep you down; the Word of God becomes meaningless to you and consequently unimportant.

Move away from any depressed person! He can depress your life! Depression can destroy your health (Proverbs 17:22). It is destructive to your health, which Satan wants destroyed.

The moment you subscribe to depression, the things that should be working start failing. Whereas sins are forgivable, depression has to be treated, because it is a sin against oneself, not against God. So, deal with it!

Joy is the secret of our superiority over Satan. Depression makes victims of men, but joy makes champions of men.

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice… Philippians 4:4
Joy is a pacesetter in our Christian race. The more of it you have, the more victories you enjoy over Satan. The only medicine for depression is joy! Joy is the only way to ventilate your spirit. James 5:13 says if you’re merry, sing.

When you’re depressed you have no contact with God’s presence. A ‘praise-full’ life is what is required to carry God’s presence. Without joy, you have no access to revelations (Isaiah 12:3). Without revelation, there’s no faith and without faith, there is no victory (1 John 5:4). Joy makes your day!

Serve the Lord with joyfulness and gladness of heart, and Satan will have no access to you. Satan is out to move you against God. Keep him off with joy – singing and making melody in your heart unto the Lord (Ephesians 5:19).

Organize for joy and happiness. Programme for it. Fill your house with music. Live in constant gratitude and thankfulness to God. To take God for granted is to be grounded! Let your heart dwell in a ceaseless flow of thanksgiving and appreciation to God. To be “praise-full” is to be “win-full”.

There is nothing in this world that should be allowed to destroy your eternity. People who are cheaply moved never live to move their mountains.


The level of joy you operate determines the level of exploits you enjoy. It makes you and God an informidable, invincible team, and establishes your triumph over Satan in any conflict of life.

Heaviness is a spirit (Isaiah 61:3). It is one of the key strategies of Satan, to strip God’s people naked. Satan calculates heaviness for God’s people, because he knows no one can stop the fiery acts of God, when man is giving God quality praise. So fight heaviness!

Every time you can’t find joy, the thief is at work. The devil comes to steal your joy, so he can make a victim of you. But a ceaseless flow of joy will cause your spiritual life to blossom. Engage in this “heavenly sense” to be free from depression.

Flee from covetousness! For a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he has (Luke 12:15). Serving God is unprofitable when it’s not done joyfully and gladly. A joyful track in your walk with God is the anointing for harvest.

Rejoice in the Lord always, not in the things you have! Until you count all things but dung, your joy in the Lord will not be genuine.

It takes joy to operate in the excellent spirit that makes for distinction. It takes joy to create a future. You belong to the order of joy by creation (Galatians 5:22). So, let the fruit flow!

Friend, our minds play a very great part in what becomes of our lives and future. So, bring your mind into subjection to the Word of God. Know also that as much as your mind is the battlefield, it is also the victory ground. It is where our destiny is determined.

What you think makes your tomorrow. What you think determines the things you say and what you say is what shapes your life. God is listening to what is going on inside you, more than what you are saying with your mouth.
Guard your mind with all watchfulness.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ….2 Corinthians 10:5

God is still on the throne!

Be Strong in Your Fight Against the Forces of Hell!

Since we now know that Satan uses nothing but subtlety and deception to trick men, there must be a way to handle him. Remember, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free…. Jn. 8:32.

What is that way? The devil is a man of tricks. How do we keep him under control? Remember that 1 John 2:14 says: I have written unto you, young men, because ye are STRONG, and the Word of God abideth in you and ye have overcome the wicked one.

So what do you do? Ephesians says: Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

This means, let your being in the Lord be a matter of personal consciousness. You are of God so automatically, you’re an overcomer (1 John 4:4). So, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath set us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Galatians 5:1).

Not all Christians are standing strong in their walk with God. It’s time to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

When you hear a man say, “I cannot fail! I cannot have accident!”, he is only saying what he is worth in the Lord. Some folks may see it as pride, but the scriptures say, “My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad” (Psalms 34:2).

When you are face-to-face with any challenge of life (such as sickness), tell the devil, “I am of God, therefore I have overcome you. So, get lost!”

You need the strength of God to deal with the cruel forces all around the world today. You need the kind of strength that will enable you to stand in the face of obvious danger, without any fear.

There are too many weaklings carrying just one armor of God around, when the Bible recommends that we “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Friend, you can’t afford to be a woman in this race. The Bible says, “Quit yourselves like men, and fight” (1 Samuel 4:9).

Get Satan off your mind, and heaven and earth will bear record that a son of God is manifesting indeed! Be bold! Be strong! For the Lord thy God is with thee!

Resist The Devil!

The devil doesn’t need any invitation, before he comes your way. He is always prepared. This is why he is called the prince of the power of the air, as he is always going to and fro looking for what to steal and who to kill.

    Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you…James 4:7

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world…1 Peter 5:8-9

The devil won’t flee because you look nice and gentle, or because you don’t disturb anybody. He won’t flee because you are kind and have all the fruits of the Spirit. Nor will he flee because you are such a strong church member. The mere fact that you’re so involved in everything in the church is not enough reason for him to flee. That you give offering regularly, will not move him either.

Satan will flee, only when you resist him. It takes some force for him to bow. He is an enemy and you are engaged in a battle with him. He is not someone to be begged or cajoled. We are wrestlers.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places…Ephesians 6:12

Have you ever seen wrestlers beg one another in the ring? Resist the devil, and he will flee! Not beg him or beg God, and he will flee. No! it is time to take charge! Refuse to let Satan have his way. Stand against him! Show him who the boss is!

Many Christians have no form of resistance at all on their inside. Friend, it’s not God or your pastor that will resist the devil for you.

You can cast out a million demons from a person and before he gets to the next bus stop, he acquires another two million! Every evil spirit has God’s permission to stay somewhere. But you can keep them off your territory!

What does the word ‘resist’ means? How can I be sure I am resisting the devil? What has enabled us in our ministry to be where we are today, is just an understanding of the word ‘resist’. The devil is my eternal enemy. Every time I see him misbehaving, I am excited, because I want to tear him to pieces!

If anybody tries to hit me with a club, I say, “Satan, get out!” I resist him immediately, I take charge, and let the force in question know that a stronger force is around. This is very important.
There are many Christians who allow the devil to have his way in their lives, without any resistance whatsoever. Some say, “I won’t eat, because I know that if I eat I will vomit.” Such a person is putting up no resistance at all against the devil. So, the devil just takes his toll on such people.

The Christians who will make it this end-time are soldiers. You cannot be a child forever. A child is no better than a slave, because he remains under governors and tutors until he grows. Even though all things are his, he doesn’t enjoy anything (Galatians 4:1-2).

Just In the Form of a Man

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name...... Phil 2:5-9

Just In the Form of a Man

For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. Acts 3:22

When the Lord sent Moses to Pharaoh, He did not send him as a man. Exodus 7:1 says: And the Lord said unto Moses, see, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh…

Jesus came and was God unto the world. He came as God in the form of a man. And hear what Jesus said, “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you” (John 20:21).
If you connect these two scriptures above, you will understand that you are only in the form of a man; you are not made of human stuff. There is something strange about your make-up!

The day you gave your life to Jesus, you received another life. You had human life before, now you have eternal life, which is the God-order of life. So, you now operate the God-order of life, within the form of an ordinary structure.

Carry the understanding, therefore, that the same way Moses confronted Pharaoh, is the same way you are to handle Satan, in any way he presents himself. It was not Moses that was able to get Israel out of Pharaoh’s hand; it was the Greater One in him! From now on, when the Pharaoh of this world (Satan) presents himself, look at him and pity him. Tell him, “Pharaoh, this is another Moses, the New Testament one. Now, get lost, in Jesus’ name!”

One day I was driving back from Ibadan (West of Nigeria) and at a check point, a soldier pointed his gun at me, threatening to shoot me. I told him, “You are too small!” Immediately, his gun dropped in his hands. The next thing he said was, “I am sorry”.

Friend, another life has been infused and injected into you. It is eternal life – the very life of God! The Bible calls it “this treasure in earthen vessels” (2 Corinthians 4:7).

An understanding of the image of God in us, will translate us from the realm of human limitations, and put us right where things will work for us as they would for God. If you don’t have an understanding of the truth “Ye are gods”, you will not be able to put situations on earth under control.

If you approach spiritual battles as a human being, you are bound to fail, because the flesh profiteth nothing. It is the spirit that quickeneth. By strength shall no man prevail.

Isaiah 59:19 says: “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall life you a standard against him”. Not a man’s height, status or the strength of his natural muscles, but the Spirit of God on the inside of him. This is the only way man can successfully put the enemy, Satan, where he belongs.

I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High…Psalms 82:6

All of you that are the children of the Most High God are gods. I mean all, not some, and not a few. But because you don’t know this, you are prone to die like men and fall like one of the princes.

You must know that by virtue of your new birth, you are no longer a mere being, but a peculiar being in human form. Everybody is free to be plagued by diseases, not you. Everybody is free to be frustrated in their various endeavors except you. The nobles of the earth may have no place to put their seats, not you.

    “I have said, Ye are gods!”

You must understand in depth how this revelation is to affect your daily lifestyle. Besides, you must put it into practice. Ye are gods! Know it! Understand it! Walk in the reality of it! Work it out!

Be Conscious of It

The knowledge of the Holy God, and the consciousness of His nature flowing in your veins, is your staff of office on the earth. Without it, you lose control.

You have the infallible nature of God that determines His own course and destiny, in your heart. You need to awaken your spiritual consciousness, and call off religion. We have been called to exhibit the transformed life on the earth. It’s time to show the devil that Jesus is still alive in us.

For your Pharaohs to submit to you, you must walk in the consciousness of the truth that says, “Ye are gods.” For diseases to obey you, for sicknesses to bow to you, for poverty to give way to you, you must carry this consciousness about – that you are indeed a god in the form of a man.

Go and discover your roots, and live well!

From now on, every mountain will obey you. You were once natural but now you are divine, because the life that makes for divinity now flows in you. Right now, whatever mountain you confront with this truth will obey you.

Get ready! Stop struggling! Start walking in the light of this revelation, and in no time at all, you will know that God who gives you dominion, and backs it up with power.

You can dominate your circumstances! You can send sickness away from your house! You can send poverty away from your territory! You can have what you please, as long as it is covered by the covenant.

You shall no longer lose control, in Jesus’ name!

The Seven Spirits Of God

Jesus Christ who is our commander could not manifest His destiny and fulfill His mandate on the earth until He was filled with the 7 spirits of God….

Luke 4:14-19 says: Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.  He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.'s%20Spirit?

He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read.  The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

Jesus was able to achieve these feats not just because He is the son of God, but because He was powered by the 7 spirits of God which are listed in Isaiah 11:1-2:

The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.

It is now very clear, it is a 2-4-1 settings. God is very much interested in the development and soundness of your soul hence He invested much in it. You cannot graduate from the higher institution without passing the principal. The soul is the principal area in the human structure, so if you fail in the principal you cannot graduate and make further progress in life.

Therefore, as a man or woman that desires dominion and fulfillment in life, you must invest in the development of your spirit and soul.

Misplaced priority has been the undoing of many today, too many times, energy and resources had been invested on the maintenance of the body to the detriment of the spirit and soul who really needed all the attention and cares. 

That is why you see gorgeously dressed men and women in high places in Government, Institutions and our societies saying and doing things that only animals and insane people are permitted to do, unimaginable things.

Hear what the scriptures said about them in Rom.1:26-32:

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Friends, it is very dangerous to misplace your attention and care of your spirit and soul for another thing. Until your spirit man is developed and the components of your soul is developed and made sound you cannot exercise dominion on earth and in any area of human endeavour.

Friends, if you must command dominion on earth: in your business, ministry, marriage, career, etc, then you must of necessity appreciate the place of the four spirits that empowers the soul. Your overall worth is a function of the wisdom of God at work in you. I see you taking the right steps to developing your soul after reading these things.

Don’t you think that for a man or a woman to spend a fortune in buying ordinary cell phone whereas he or she has nothing upstairs is madness? You see our leaders in various places these days behaving like animals and babies, their spirit is dwarfed and their mind is underdeveloped thereby corrupted.

Jesus said, greater work than He did shall you and I do if we believe: John14:12: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 

There is no way we can do greater works unless we are filled with the same spirits He was filled with, the seven spirits of God. It is the baptism of these spirits of God that gives you and I power to do great works.

Friends, I strongly advice you to partner with God for the transformation of your soul; this is the only way you can be fulfilled on earth. The wisdom, knowledge and understanding that are required for dominion and a life of fulfillment can only be resident in the soul not in the body. The body requires only good food to keep going.

Daniel possessed these; 5:12: Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and showing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will show the interpretation.

It was a spirit of God developed soul that gave Daniel the upper hand in a strange land. When the spirits of God is upon you, you don’t need to know any body before you breakthrough and dominate; even in a strange land of captivity Daniel prospered by the instrumentality of a hyper sensitive spirit and a sound mind by the excellent spirits of God.

It is a spirit of God developed soul that enhances the sensitivity of your spiritual antenna to pick divine signals. When your spirit is down and your soul is underdeveloped there is no way you can be sensitive to the signals of the spirit. When you pay all the attentions and cares to the wellbeing of your body alone leaving your spirit and soul you can never hear what God is saying concerning any issue.

These spirits are made available for you and me to posses; they are for you and me for the asking. Why not go to God now in a heartfelt prayer asking for the baptism of these spirits: spirit of wisdom, spirit of understanding, spirit of counsel, and spirit of knowledge.

See you at the TOP most Top by the manifestation of these spirits!
