Meet the Comforter

The power of God is the ultimate power and works mightily on our behalf. I am going to set out some scriptures to stir up and encourage readers to explore the limitless possibilities of this power. The power works wonders in the lives of all who believe in God and who are ready to trust him to obtain the riches of his grace.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen” Eph. 3:20-21 (NKJV)

This power is superior to all powers; it is earned, though it need be, to fulfil the divine mandate and empower those that believe; to permanently demolish the accusation of the devil, and be an everlasting banner for the whole world, and a guarantee for those who trust the Lord. It has an aim and object. You can activate your faith

“To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen”

Rev. 1: 5-6.(NKJV)

Jesus says “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” Rev. 1:8 (NKKJV).

The scripture says of him,

“who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” Phil. 2:6-11) (NKJV).

People don’t have to believe in God to be subjected to the ultimate power that is in Jesus Christ, which he gracious gave to us. Jesus doesn’t use his name like we do; for example, he does need to end his prayer with “in Jesus name.” the power is passed to us.

“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV)

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20 (NKJV)

John 16:23-24, “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (NKJV)

What you need to do to enjoy this power is to act as these words demands that you do; believe and trust God and insist on it when the devil brings arguments. The devil will surely confront you and contest the scriptures with you. He did that to Jesus too.

This power is the ultimate power.

“And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever:

For His dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom is from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven And among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand Or say to Him, “What have You done?” Daniel 4:34-35 (NKJV)

Let this power work for you.

The story of Joseph is a great leading to the blessings that God has for you; you will read some of it in this message. I have reproduced a full text of that part of the scriptures so that you can follow through without distractions. If you can relate to this truth, then appropriate it and let God work it out in your life. God will see you through.

“Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. Then they said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!” You can activate your faith

But Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands, and said, “Let us not kill him.” And Reuben said to them, “Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him”—that he might deliver him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father.

So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him. hen they took him and cast him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it.

And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry them down to Egypt. So Judah said to his brothers, “What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother and our flesh.” And his brothers listened.  Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt” Gen.31:18-29 (NKJV).

The brothers of Joseph were “blind” in the spirit and were all out to do evil to a man who they did nothing to them, they did not understand him and cared less if he lived or died.

Do you know that Joseph was never a King or a Judge (or anything of such) in Israel? So where was their envy? Darkness rules the hearts of evil people and blinds them.

Evil does not always start nor end with outsiders; many major evil plots always have an insider! It is common with believers to be vulnerable to dangers perpetrated from close quarters. The word of God never said we should be ‘as harmless as a dove and as stupid as the sheep’. It says, “to be as harmless as a dove and as wise as the serpent.” Matt. 10:16 (KJV). Be warned, it did not say we should be serpents!

Always remember that God is in control and Psalm 121:3-8.

“He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.

Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand.

The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.

The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore”

Don’t be fooled to believe that your destiny is in the hands of those who hate you and who would like to give “testimony” in their ‘gatherings’ of how their “god” destroyed their enemy. (meaning you – they are liars).  You are never going to be destroyed.

The facts are in the promises of God concerning you. God will do anything possible to ensure that his promises concerning you are fulfilled. That is always his way of doing things.

Joseph was actually set on course to fulfil his destiny. God was watching and was in perfect control. All that Joseph passed through were part of the plan. The brothers played into God’s plan. Don’t despair, you are on course to your rising and glory.

The revelations to Joseph were all fulfilled. You will fulfil destiny. No man can stop you.

Trust God, believe his promises to you and stay focussed; don’t allow fear and frustration overwhelm you. “the dragon shall not prevail.” Rev. 12:7-8. (KJV)

“If the enemy comes in one way, will flee in seven ways.” Dt. 28:7 (KJV)

Stop comparing yourself with others, mind your own business and walk in your own path. Serve the Lord and ‘you will not serve your enemies’ Dt.28:47-48.

Enjoy the grace of God. “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”

What you believe strongly in your heart, is what you will become. God bless you.

Here goes the year 2017!

There will many things to ‘worry’ about in 2017 in every part of the world. New President in United States of America, Brexit and elections in Europe, health concerns all over the world, poverty in third world countries, wars, terrorism concerns, cyber-attacks, educational and personal challenges.

You can choose to make progress or sit back, worry and complain about many things you cannot possibly do anything about.nls-law-fair-25th-january

Taking things in bits might help. You can start from the things you can handle and then attempt to do the more challenging tasks. Why not try to step out of your comfort zone, it might pay off, you know?

Whatever you choose to do, the right information will help. Don’t neglect to seek help from experts and good sources. Seek help when you need one; for example, if you need help with mental health problems, bullying and domestic violence.

Forecasts and unstable world economy and politics will continue; get going and do the best you can for your community.

It my prayer that this word meets you well and brings the breakthrough that you so desire at this time. This is a special message to a person of God. You may know someone who may need these words and may wish to send it to him/her. (Please, I am not talking about “a send to everyone stuff”. Be sure the person needs it.

You may be in such a situation like a cross road, you are surrounded be evidence of the power of God but you are just dry and empty inside and it looks as if the word of God is bouncing off you. You are tempted to ask question the reality of the Lord, like John the Baptist did.

“When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Luke 7:20-23 (KJV)

God is control. Don’t give up. The power of God all around you is real despite your challenges. Give God the control and wait for your breakthrough.

The devil is defeated and you know it. However, the fleshed can be a real issue (this doesn’t apply to all.), you can’t understand why your “declarations” are not coming “the way you want them” see Isaiah 55:6ff. 

Remember the great things God is doing around you, (even through your hands), and be encouraged. You will step into a miracle soonest, but, let the Holy Spirit take control; NOW.

Satanic conspiracy against you are destroyed in Jesus name. Let the light of his glory shine upon you even in the gross darkness of this world. 

You are an overcomer and I am praying for you.

How is corruption defined?

I hope this message meets you well and uplift your soul and spirit. I hope it sets you up or encourage you to continue to engineer social change in your community, be it physical or spiritual.

Actually it is a question and you are going to help to set thing in order, that is, writing this piece better than anybody can and believing that generation of yours who read it now and in future will be proud of you.

I saw a definition of corruption online and it reads: 

 “corruption:

1. dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.

synonyms: dishonesty, dishonest dealings, unscrupulousness, deceit, deception, duplicity, double-dealing, fraud, fraudulence, misconduct, lawbreaking, crime, criminality, delinquency, wrongdoing, villainy; bribery, bribing, subornation, venality, graft, extortion, jobbery, profiteering; payola; informalcrookedness, shadiness, sleaze, palm-greasing; malfeasance, misfeasance; archaicknavery; raremalversation

2. the process by which a word or expression is changed from its original state to one regarded as erroneous or debased.

“a record of a word’s corruption”

synonyms: alteration, falsification, doctoring, manipulation, manipulating, fudging, adulteration, debasement, degradation, abuse, subversion, misrepresentation, misapplication; rarevitiation”

So who is corrupt?

I have heard people use the  word ‘corruption’, exclusively irrespective of what is the real picture around them.

I have an interesting Bible passage that I will encourage you to read; it is like a movie story; actually it was a horror.

Judges chapters 19 to chapter 21.

I found Judges 20:17-21, very disturbing when I read it many years ago until the Lord explained it to me.  The explanation is in  Judges 20:26-35.

In Judges 20:17-21. God told the Israelites to fight the Benjamits, but they lost, they were beaten mercilessly by the Benjamites. However, it was a different thing entirely in Num. 20:26-35, where the Benjamites were beaten almost to extinction.

You know what the Lord told me, sinners can’t judge sinners!  A further study of Judges 2:10- 21, will show you how the Isrealites lived. They liked like sinners because they were. Everyone did whatever they pleased irrespective of what the law says or who is hurt. They were lawless, corrupt, godless, unmerciful, you just name it.

We can make a difference in our societies. This is a tough call and daring but we can. Every little step counts.

How do we define corruption? Exclusively? Some of our countries are so rich in religion and can comfortably export it but it has not imparted their national live. It is just like where “everybody does what they like”. People are only called “sinners when they are discover; actually sin is sin when it is committed, not just when sinners are found out.

It is not about what my friends and I thinks about someone or a situation but about what is right. If the Bible is not your standard what is? How do you interpret the scriptures?

Let the Lord be Lord. God bless you.

It is very common to find people who had a great day in their church service on Sundays but who end up having what I liken to a “hellish week vacation”. That is, they had their week full of contention from the pit of hell. The enemy bombarded them with all manners of trouble. The great Sunday service blessing were never sustained nor profitable during the week. The scripture says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Seeing then that we have a great…

You are limited by the thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth. Be careful!It may happen now or later but it certainly happens that what you allow to dominate your thoughts and talk about especially concerning your life and your situations are just going to become your reality. The scripture says in Mathew 9:920-22,
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
This woman concluded in her heart what she wanted out of her encounter with Jesus and she got it. 
It is important that you monitor your thoughts and your words. Don’t say things you have not thought through. Watch what people say about you and reject every evil word spoken to you or about you.
The word of God says: 
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:18 (KJV)
Jesus is our righteousness and evil words of people against us will amount to nothing and will be frustrated. This is our heritage.

God bless you.

Hear me now and live with it, you are delivered in Christ Jesus. The word of God says so; live with it. The scripture says:

“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Gal.3:13-14. 
Don’t let it slip from your fingers. You are blessed, if you have Jesus as your saviour and Lord.

You are privileged to come to God for forgiveness when you miss it. Don’t panic. The scripture says,

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9

Believe God today and enjoy a good day. Cast all your cares on him.

God bless you. Have a great day.

Being a Christian gives us the innumerable possiblities of enjoying life to the fullest and brings fulfilment and joy. The scriptures states that the faith you need is as big as the mustard see.
