SICKNESS; BLESSING OR CURSE

Sickness: Blessing or Curse?
Is sickness a blessing or a curse?
God's Word declares it is a curse. Some people would have you believe God "blesses" His children with sickness and disease. (If He does, I would prefer to let someone else have that "blessing.") But, according to God's Word, sickness is a curse, and health is a blessing! Disease is broken ease. Sickness is pain and suffering. It makes slaves of family and friends who must care for sick loved ones. Disease and sickness are enemies of mankind. Sickness is a thief and a robber. It has robbed many a young mother of her health, beauty, and joy. It has robbed her husband of his wife, and has deprived her children of their mother, for she is no longer able to fulfill the duties of a wife and mother. Disease has robbed many young men, coming upon them in the midst of young manhood, filling them with anxiety and fear, robbing them of faith. Sickness and disease rob people of happiness, health, and money which is needed for other things. Sickness: Is It God's Will? Sickness and disease are not the will of God for His people. He does not want a curse to be upon His children because of their disobedience; He wants to bless them with health. "Oh, yes," some people have said to me, "I believe God was Israel's Healer under the Old Covenant, and He wanted the children of Israel to have health, but we're not living under that covenant." That's true. But if the Old Covenant provided for healing and the New Covenant (or Testament) does not, I wonder if the New Covenant is as good as the old? Thank God, the Bible says that the New Covenant is better: HEBREWS 8:6 6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a BETTER covenant, which was established upon BETTER promises. Let me remind you that our text is from the New Testament: "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us" (Gal. 3:13). It is not the will of God that we be sick. In Bible days, it was not God's will for the children of Israel to be sick, and they were God's servants. Today, we are God's children. If it was not His will for even His servants to be sick, it could not be His will for His children to be sick! Sickness and disease are not of love. God is love. In Luke 13, Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. A woman came in who was bent over. She could have had arthritis or something of that nature, because her body was bent in a stationary position. Jesus called her to Him and said, "Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity" (v. 12). When the ruler of the synagogue became angry because Christ healed the sick woman, Jesus said, "Ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?" (v. 16). Jesus said it was Satan who had bound woman. Redeemed In preaching to Cornelius' household, Peter said: ACTS 10:38 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. This Scripture makes it clear that the people Jesus healed were oppressed by the devil. Some people today would have you believe that God sends sickness upon people to bless them. They'll tell you, "Stay away from those meetings where they pray for the sick to be healed. That's of the devil." If they are right, then God and the devil must have swapped jobs lately! Two thousand years ago, Satan was oppressing people and Jesus was healing them. The Bible tells us, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever" (Heb. 13:8). Jesus never changes! From the beginning to the end of His public ministry, Christ was combating Satan. His battle was not with men, but with demons who indwelt men. Don't ever tell anyone sickness is the will of God for us. It isn't! Healing and health are the will of God for mankind. If sickness were the will of God, heaven would be filled with sickness and disease. Remember, Jesus in His earth walk was the will of God in action. He came to unveil the Father to us. He is the Word of God. He is God speaking to us. (See John 1:14; Heb. 1:1,2.) If you want to know what God thinks about sickness, look at Jesus! He went about healing the sick! ISAIAH 53:4,5 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs [sicknesses], and carried our sorrows [diseases]: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. this 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Matthew quotes a portion of these Scriptures: MATTHEW 8:17 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. The Holy Spirit, looking back at Calvary, wrote in the past tense through Peter: 1 PETER 2:24 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. I read from the pen of Dr. John Alexander Dowie about how he received light on the subject of divine healing.1 Dr. Dowie was pastor of a Congregational church in Newtown, a suburb of Sydney, Australia, when the bubonic plague struck there around 1875. People were dying like flies. Dr. Dowie buried 40 members of his congregation in less than a month. Four more died and were yet to be buried, and many more were stricken with the plague. There was no cure. After visiting the many sick members of his flock one day, Dr. Dowie returned home and sat in his study, his arms folded upon his desk, his head upon his arms, weeping before God. "God, is everybody going to die?" he cried. "Are You going to take everybody? Where did this plague come from? Are You the author of this?" He was heartsick at the thought of the families that would be torn apart by the plague; at the children who would be left orphans. "Then the words of the Holy Ghost inspired in Acts 10:38 stood before me all radiant with light, revealing Satan as the Defiler, and Christ as the Healer," Dr. Dowie wrote many years later. "My tears were wiped away," Dr. Dowie said, "my heart was strong. I saw the way of healing, and the door thereto was opened wide, so I said, 'God help me now to preach the Word to all the dying around, and tell them how 'tis Satan still defiles, and Jesus still delivers, for "He is just the same today."'" He did not have long to wait. Within minutes, two young men burst into his study, pleading breathlessly, "Oh, come at once. Mary is dying!" Dr. Dowie ran down the street after them, not even pausing to take his hat. He was furious that Satan should have attacked this innocent young member of his flock. Dr. Dowie entered Mary's room and found her in convulsions. Her medical doctor, having given up on her, was preparing to leave. He turned to Dr. Dowie and remarked, "Sir, are not God's ways mysterious?" The revelation Dr. Dowie had just received from the Word of God was burning in his heart. "God's way!" he thundered. "How dare you call that God's way! No, sir, that is the devil's work!" He challenged the physician, who was a member of his congregation, "Can you pray the prayer of faith that saves the sick?" The doctor replied, "You are much too excited, sir, 'tis best to say God's will be done," and he left. "Excited! The word was quite inadequate for I was almost frenzied with Divinely imparted anger and hatred of that foul destroyer, Disease, which was doing Satan's will," Dowie wrote. "'It is not so,' I exclaimed, 'no will of God sends such cruelty, and I shall never say "God's will be done" to Satan's works, which God's own Son came to destroy, and this is one of them.'Oh, how the Word of God was burning in my heart....'" Furious at Satan's attack, Dr. Dowie prayed the prayer of faith for Mary. Years later, he said he prayed something like this: 23 "Our Father, help! and Holy Spirit, teach me how to pray. Plead thou for us, oh, Jesus, Saviour, Healer, Friend, our Advocate with God the Father. Hear and heal, Eternal One! From all disease and death deliver this sweet child of Thine. I rest upon the Word. We claim the promise now. The Word is true, 'I am the Lord that healeth thee.' Then heal her now. The Word is true, 'I am the Lord, I change not.' Unchanging God, Then prove Thyself the Healer now. The Word is true, 'These signs shall follow them that believe. In My Name, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.' And I believe, and I lay hands in Jesus' Name on her, and claim this promise now. Thy Word is true. 'The prayer of faith shall save the sick.' Trusting in Thee alone, I cry, oh, save her now, for Jesus' sake, Amen!" The girl's convulsions ceased immediately, and she fell into such a deep sleep that her mother feared she had died. "She isn't dead," the triumphant Dr. Dowie assured them. "I saw that Christ had heard and that once more, as long ago in Peter's house, 'He touched her and the fever left her.'" After several minutes, Dr. Dowie awakened Mary. She turned to her mother and exclaimed, "Mother, I feel so well!" Remembering how Jesus had ministered to the little girl He had raised from the dead in Bible days, Dr. Dowie asked, "And you're hungry?" "Oh, yes," she agreed. "I'm so hungry." Dr. Dowie instructed Mary's nurse to fix her a cup of cocoa and some bread and butter. Quietly thanking God, he went into the next room, where her brother and sister lay sick with the same plague. After prayer, they, too, instantly recovered. "As I went away from the home where Christ as the Healer had been victorious," Dr. Dowie recalled, "I could not but have somewhat in my heart of the triumphant song that rang through Heaven, and yet I was not a little amazed at my own strange doings, and still more at my discovery that HE IS JUST THE SAME TODAY." From that day on, Dr. Dowie ministered to his flock on divine healing and prayed for their healing. He never lost another member to the plague. But isn't it strange that the doctor, who was a member of Dowie's church, would treat people and give them medicine, but when they got beyond the aid of medical science, he called it the will of God? It puzzles me that people will take medicines and do everything they can to get well, but if you suggest they have someone pray for their healing, they'll say, "It may not be God's will to heal me." Why didn't they question the will of God in the first place? If it isn't God's will for them to be well, they shouldn't take any medicine or treatment. They would be out of God's will trying to get well! I do not mean to discredit the medical profession. Doctors are fighting the same devil we are. I merely want to point out that this is human reasoning and wrong thinking, and it has robbed many people of the blessings of healing and health...Kenneth E. Hagin

DON'T DELAY, BY PASTOR CHRIS

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES **Don’t Delay** Tuesday 24th May . Pastor Chris
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4).
Avoid procrastination. Don’t delay in the things you should do. Act at the right time; act while you can, because the opportunity may not always be there. What’s that vision the Lord laid in your heart at the beginning of the year? How far have you fulfilled it? It could be about your evangelical work as a Christian or a minister of the Gospel. It could be about your job or family or even your health. Don’t delay. Be about what He asked you to do, and refuse to be distracted.
Oftentimes, when you don’t do what you should do at the right time, your inaction could prevent you from getting to the next level of your life. So, do the right things at the right time. It’s one of the benefits of yielding yourself to the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God; His wisdom propels you to do the right thing at the right time, the right way, for the right purpose.
Sometimes, the consequences of delay could take several years to correct; so, take action now. Don’t delay in doing the Lord’s bidding. Once you take the step and put the required effort into that which He has inspired you to do, His miracle-power comes upon your efforts, and His glory is revealed in what you do. So, don’t delay to act on His Word. Don’t delay to act on His instructions and the inspirations that come to you.

Some people get the prompting of the Spirit to do something, but they ignore that prompting, because they want to pursue some other things first. Sadly, they often never get a second chance. It pays to know the voice of the Lord and respond promptly when He speaks. It pays to do what He wants you to do when He wants it done.
PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for your wisdom, glory, grace, power, and the divine enablement you’ve imparted to my spirit so as to live the victorious Christian life, every day. By your Spirit, I’m divinely positioned to fulfil my destiny in Christ, fruitful in the ministry of reconciliation, to the glory of your Name, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

THE PILAR OF JUSTIFICATION

FEBRUARY 2016", THE PILLAR OF JUSTIFICATION, BY PASTOR VICTOR JEREMIAH , The word inheritance actually means the right to receive that which is rightly yours by birth. That is clearly seen in the life of the children of Israel in the promise land, after their fathers has fought in the war of possession and had succeeded to dispossess the possessors. Deut7:1 “When the lord thy God shall bring thee into the land, wither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations, before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the PERIzzITES, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou”. These nations were initially the possessor and occupier of these lands, but in their dispensation, the Israelites fathers had to fight them with the help of God in the war of genocide and annihilation, and then possess their land.But the sons and daughter of these Israelites, doesn’t have to fight the same people all over again, to possess the same land, but they simply devised a method that was almost cheating free, to divide the land amongst themselves, thereby releasing everyone’s inheritance into his or her hands by casting lots. Jos18:8. “and the men arose, and went away; and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that i may here cast lots for you before the lord in Shiloh.To cast lots have, depict some element of divine touch, which is to say that whatsoever is inherited by anyone, group or family is purely by divine arrangement. So that in our dispensation, which is an improvement of the dispensation of the sons of the Israelites fathers, our inheritance has been kept for us by Christ who actually fought to dispossess the possessor , who is the devil because unto him Adam handed over his authority as the lord over the earth to, and since then the devil has been the god of the earth, and therefore he has the jurisprudence of the earth’s wealth, and the devil is so much aware of it that he was bold enough to even promise our Lord Jesus that he will give Jesus the jurisprudence over the wealth of the earth if only Jesus will bow down to worship him. 1Cor2:6”Howbeit we speak among them that are perfect; Yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of the world, that come to naught”The reference to the prince of this world is certainly the devil, Math4;8 “And again the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them and saith unto Him, all these will give thee, if thou will bow down and worship me” And this story was repeated in the book of Luke, as thus , Lk4:5-6 “ And the devil taking Him into an high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world, in a moment of time, and the devil said unto Him, all these power will I give thee, and the glory of them; for that is delivered unto me, and to whomsoever I will, I give it” Did you notice what the devil said to Jesus?, he said that it was delivered unto him I’ am sure he must be referring to Adam, who must have given it unto him. So Satan was not actually lying when he said that the riches and glory of this world was delivered unto him, and that he was in the position to hand it over to whom ever he pleases, most especially tho9se who will worship him. And it is a fact, but there is the present truth, which is where we gained our authority to access our kingdom. Rev3:7 “And the Angel of the church in Philadelphia, write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is True, He that hath the key of David, He thatopeneth, and no one shutteth; And shutteth and no man openeth” This is the present truth 2nd Peter 1:12 “for this reason you know and are established in the present truth.” Thispractically revealed to us that our wealth, inheritance and blessings are not in the hand of the enermy or opposition, but in the hand of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1pet1:3-4. “Blessed be the lord God and father of our lord Jesus Christ which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance, incorruptible and undefiled and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. So it is very correct to say that your wealth, marriage, children, breakthrough, greatness, and success, Glory, Strength ,Blessings, Might, and Power, which are some of the things in your inheritance are in heaven, and in the hand of Jesus Christ, it does not decay, or go out of fashion, it is renewed and modernized with time, so that if you have a car in your inheritance and you are able to locate the right key or wisdom to unlock and access it and lay hold of it in 2015, it will be the car in vogue in 2015, because it is in the past, present participle. This was what John the beloved was saying in Jn3:27 “John answered and said a man can receive nothing except it is given him from above’’.1cor4:7. “ For who maketh thee to differ from another? And that hast thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory as if thou hadst not received it.” what so ever you have and shall have, is given to you by God from heaven, so in this kingdom we are company of inheritors and not possessors Abrahamic connections.It is a relationship to Abrahamic connection in our inheritance that the pillar of justification will be properly understood and put into maximum use In order for us to gain access into our inheritance inthis kingdom in Gen13:14-16.“And the lord said unto Abraham, after that lot was separated from Him: lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou artnorthward and southward, and eastward andwestward: for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever,and I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man cannumber the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.This vision of Abraham where he heard God was in the day light, because you certainly cannot see the sand at night and it is referring to the biological and physical sons of Abraham which is the present day Israelite. Again in the book of Gen15:5-6 “And He brought him forth abroad, and said look now towards heaven, and tell the stars if thou be able to number them; And He said unto him so shall thy seed be, and he believed God and it was counted unto him for righteousness” This surely is a night vision, because you only see the stars at night , and it was referring to the spiritual sons, and daughters, of Abraham by through faith, which includes the body of Christ. Again after Abraham had sacrificed his beloved son Isaac to God on mount Moriah, God blessed him, with the combination of both the biological ,and the spiritual sons, Gen22:17 “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seeds as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; And thy seed shall posses the gate of their enemies” We are the star of heaven, that means that our Lord Jesus Chest is our senior brother of whom we are co heirs with Him , and He is also rightly referred to as the bright and the morning star. Apostle Paul was more explicit in his writing to the Galatians church Gal3:16-18:24 “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made, He saith not and to seeds, as of many; But as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ, and this I say, that the covenant which was confirmed, before of God in Christ, the law which was one hundred and thirty years old, after can not disannul, that it should make the promise of no effect. For if the inheritance be of the law, It is no more of promise; But God gave to Abraham by promise; Therefore the law was our school master, to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith”The law came four hundred and thirty years the promise was made, and it was confirmed by the person of the mediator unto us, Gal3:19 “Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added, because of transgression, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made, and it was ordained by the Angels, in the hand of a mediator” For a mediator to be involved it must be a paramount issue, and for this, we must understand and appropriate the wisdom of the justification. JUSTIFICATION: Justification is almost the same as qualification; to be declared qualified for a place, decoration, promotion, and being legally permitted to lay hold on inheritance in Christ. To be justified means to have a right of existence before the presence of God, to have a right standing with God, to e reconciled to God as a son , and to be lifted into the realm of the supernatural, as a Spirit, and as one with Christ as co heir, co judge of the sprit world. But many don’t understand it, so their conscience is always bowed with guilt, which disqualified them from accessing their kingdom heritage. Because they don’t exercise the right to judge issues, and circumstances, unto their favor. The Lord by the Spirit said in the book of Col1:12 Giving thanks unto the father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light” The word meets here means to be qualified, in the sight of God, with the right spiritual standard, as demanded by the supernatural authority.. In the other word God qualified us to be partakers of the kingdom heritage through our Lord Jesus Christ. And it is not by our work but by His work: WHY DO WE NEED JUSTIFICATION: A sin was committed either by our parents, or even by our selves, and even in our generation past, and it has been a debts on our part, Eph2:11-12 “Wherefore remember ye being in the time past, gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision, by that which is called circumcision in the flesh, made by hand that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens to the common wealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenant of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world”And this iniquity, trespass, and sin, is a nature in man that is fallen, having the form of Adam the fallen man. This nature created a partition between God and man, Eph2:2-3,“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of the world, according the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience, among whom also we had our conversation In times past in the lust of our flesh, fulfilling the desire of the flesh, and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.”So that justification is needed to bring us back into a relationship with our inheritance. Justification gives us boldness to enter God’s presence. It is a spiritual work that gives you a right standing with God. A justified person does not have the conscience of guilt; so He has the boldness to approach the father for his inheritance. THE BENEFIT OF JUSTIFICATION TO ACCESS OUR INHERITANCE. The inheritance of the kingdom is only for the justified. Until you are spiritually justified and you are consciously aware of its implication, you will never gain access into your inheritance. Rom8:28-30 “we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose: For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren, moreover whom he did predestinate, them He also called, and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified: blessed with beautiful and wealthy inheritance.”All things, all situations, all circumstances, and in all areas of life must turn out to your favor, and become a testimony, to every one who are called according to Gods purpose. So there is a purpose of God behind every one who is called into kingdom of Christ, and every one that is called into the kingdom of Christ is actually called according to a particular purpose. This is to justify, and to qualify them to enter into their glorious inheritance, which includes, power, riches, honor, glory, blessings, strength, and wisdom. This was the reason God said that every one that is called by His name are to manifest and display His glory. Therefore the purpose of God for justifying us is to qualify us to inherit His glory package. Let’s consider these three scriptures, for proper analysis, and clearer insight into the mystery of justification, so that we can deduce the spiritual benefit behind it. 1Cor6:9-11 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” It is for the purpose of making us meet to be partakers of inheritance of the saints, in the light, that is why we are washed by the blood of Jesus Christ, and sanctified by the truth, and now we are justified and qualified , and sealed for approval in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit of promise, our enabler, this is sweet, and deep. What a God of mystery, what a God of wisdom that we serve? And the second scripture is Eph5:5 “For this ye know that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, nor idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ, and of our God. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord. Walk as children of light”.And also consider that the Holy Spirit has to make you a child of light in order to make you meet to be partakers of the saints, in the light. These are the justified people. And the third scripture is 1Pt1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to an inheritance, incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you”. So, His resurrection from the dead is to begat us into a living hope, and this hope is unto an inheritance that is reserved in heaven , and does not have the ingredient of decay, because it is not subject to time factor. And you know what? When He ascending unto heaven He lifted us with Him after resurrection, so that we are seated in this same place where our inheritance is situated, in this kingdom, and these includes, wealth, health, fruit of the womb, peace, glory, and beauty, strength, power to overcome and tame the enemy, success in all our endeavors, marriage fulfillment, and marital pursuit, and all kinds of break through in life and godliness. We are justified to be qualified, to be endorsed, and to be enabled, to access our kingdom heritage. That means by justification we can approach the throne of justice, to demand our heritage without a sense of guilt or conscience of condemnation. We are washed to be identified, identified to be sanctified. Sanctified to be justified, justified to be reconciled, reconciled to be translated, translated to be related, and related to be a delightsome personality. And as we please the Lord just as Jacob pleased Isaac, and he was blessed with the blessings of the heavens and the earth, so much so that he became greater than the man he worked for. The moment God justifies you, nobody and no situation can do other wise. And to make this point clearer lets look at the inter play of these scriptures, Math7v7 “Ask, and it shall be given unto thee. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh ,receiveth and he that seekethfindeth, and to him that knocketh, it shall be openeth” So that to lay hold on your inheritance asking is one of the means, and the scripture said something very striking. To every one that asketh shall receive, this means that what so ever is your desire, the moment you open your mouth to ask from God, your father, in the name of Jesus Christ, you shall receive. And now let us consider another, scripture, in 1Jn5v14-15 “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us, and if we know that He heareth us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petition that we desired of Him” That means that even if we have properly analyzed our desire to be genuine, we must ask according to the will of God for us to be granted an audience with God, which is the only hindrance to our receiving our answers. If that is the case, how do we pray according to the will of God? And the bible said that even God works out everything in agreement to the counsel of His will, including releasing answers to our various prayers, and petitions. Therefore to lay hold on your heritage through prayer, and petition, you must understand how to address your petition in agreement , to the will of God, and to buttress the truth further the Holy Spirit gave me an insight on how to always pray according to the will of God, and I titled it the prayer that can not fail. It is based on the quadruple stand of some scriptures, and one of which is 1Jn5v14-15, this scripture has been quoted earlier, and the second one is Isa1v18-19 “Come now and let us reason together, saith the Lord. Though your sin be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” To pray according to the will of God, you come with reasons to justify yourself before God, in a manner and attitude of some one who wants to discuss issues of great significance, so that you must come with genuine reasons why you must have what you are asking for. The second scripture is Isa41:21 “Produce your cause. Saith the Lord, bring forth your strong reasons. Saith the king of Jacob” Remember that in the earlier scripture, He said come and let us reason together, and now again, He said to bring forth your strong reasons, which means that to reason with the all knowing God of wisdom , you must come forth with very strong reasons, and not just mumble jumble. And it was concluded with the fact that if we are willing to come forth with a very strong reason and obedient to that instruction we will inevitably lay hold on our kingdom heritage as the fruit of the land. And again the Holy Spirit also made me to understand from Isa43:26 “Put me in remembrance. Let us plead together, (reason together) Declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.” You can deduce from these analysis that your argument must be backed with scriptural provisions, in order to justify your claim, and your desire. This is what our father in heaven desires to hear and He will respond with the release of our kingdom heritage. From all these analysis it has come to this wonderful conclusion that the purpose of all prayers is to be able to receive justification , and secure divine approval to access your kingdom heritage The Holy Spirit told inspired me with this insight on how to pray according to the will of God when I was inspired to write one of my Christian classic on prayer that can not fail. ACTS OF JUSTIFICATION Declare thou that thou mayest be justified. Our justification therefore the recognition w placed on the finished work of the cross, and subsequent resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. And it also demands that if you understand these phenomenons, you must declare your justification effectively. What you cannot declare with boldness, you are not qualified to partake of it or inherit. That is why Prophet Isaiah said, declare thou that thou mayest be justified, and again Apostle Mathew saith thus. Math12v37 “For by thy words thou shIall be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned”.So that to be justified and to layhold on your kingdom heritage, your tongue is a very important, and relevant key. Lk21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and a wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gain say, nor resist” Until you enforce your authority over your kingdom heritage with your mouth, you stand to lose it to usurpIers. Therefore address your situations, circumstances, desires, and oppositions with the sword of the Spirit, which is also known as the rod of your mouth and see your kingdom heritage, come cheaply into your hand. Num14:28 “Say unto them, as truly as I live, saith the Lord, as you have spoken to mine ears, so will I do unto you” And again it was stated in the book of Ecc5:6“Suffer not your mouth to cause your body to sin. Neither say thou before an Angel. It was an error. Wherefore God should be angry at thy word and destroy the works of thy hands”Your voice plays a significant role in your destiny, because it was stated in the book of the Apostle James that it is the driving force of your destiny.Jam3:2-6”For we all often stumble anId fall, and offend in many things. And if any one does not offend in speech by not saying the wrong things, he is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his whole body to curbI his entire nature. If we set bit in the horse’s mouths, to make them obey us, we can turn their whole bodies about. Likewise look at theps. Though they are so great, and are driven by rough winds, there are steered by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines. Even so the tongue is a little member and it can boast of great things. See how much wood or how a great a forest a tiny spark can set ablaze! And the tongue is a fire, the tongue is a world of wickedness, set among our members, contaminating and depraving the whole body, and setting on fire the wheel of birth, the circle of man’s nature, being itself ignited by hell” Did you see the account of Apostle James, on the significance of the tongue to the entire destiny of a man., and even his accessing his kingdom heritage? Therefore it is not enough to know that you have a heritage but to lay hold on them you have to put your tongue to a judicious use. The bible said that though the tongue is a little member yet it boast of great things. It compels the Angels to work on your behalf or rather it is the instrument that activates the Angel to work on your behalf. Ps103:20. “Bless the Lord you His Angels you mighty ones, who do His commandments, hearkening to the voice of His Words” And you know that you need the service of the ministering Spirits to be able to lay hold on your kingdom heritage. The work of your hands also responds to the produce for you according to the words of your mouth. Prov12:14 “Man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth. And the recompense of a man hand shall be rendered unto Him” Your State of health which is also one of your kingdom heritage is driven to a state of divine health by the power of your tongue. Prov18:20 “Life and death are in the power of the tongue”What so ever is the promise to what you have discovered and it applies to your situation, keep saying it until it starts manifesting, because as the word of your mouth increases, it will surely overcome and prevail over the situation and circumstances you find your self, and it will produce your desired result. Acts19:20 “So mightily grew the word and prevailed” therefore don’t talk about failings, weaknesses, lack, frustrations, and sicknesses, no matter what it appears to look like. You must exercise God’s kind of faith which calls the things that be not as if they were. Know for sure that all things are certainly going to be working out for your own good according to the will of God. The bible said that the house of the righteous shall never lack treasures, because that is the lot of the righteous, so that if for what ever reason the situation is contrary in the physical, don’t ever give it a voice, because that is the signature that the ministering Spirits are waiting for, to go to work on your behalf. You can not be poor because He took your poverty in order to make you rich, so that to say that you are poor is to deny the works of Christ that was perfected on the Cross. He also took your sickness; therefore you are not permitted to be sick, because the sicknsses He took, no body have the authority to bring them back to your body. So with all boldness shout at the roof top, I’ am rich in all currencies, I can not be sick, I’ am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. And all these are your rightful inheritance as a son and daughter of God. You are intelligent because you have s a sound mind; your business is prospering and successful, because what ever is born of God overcomes the world, which includes your business, and all your enterprises. To be justified therefore means that we should seat on the chair of judgment empowered by the Spirit of justice and declare what we desired in a situation, and that’s how it must be, because we have heavens backing. Eph 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:(KJV) To be lifted up to heaven means to be given heavenly backing, and authority, and seating position, indicating the position of power of judgment without being questioned or challenged, Isa 28:6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate. (KJV) This judgement was actually given to Jesus Christ, Jn5:22”For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgments unto the Son” and Jesus Christ sad that He has sent us as God has sent Him. Joh 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.(KJV) JUDGEMENTAL AUTHORITY OF THE SAINTS; The actual meaning of the saints being lifted up with Christ and being made to seat in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, is to be given heavenly authority to judge situations and circumstances, Eph2:6:” And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” Did you see the scripture as it said that we are lifted up with Christ, it actually does not mean that we are literarily lifted up physically above the sky but in reality we are given heaven authority to decides issue here on the earth, and because it is a heavenly seat of authority, the Spirit of justice comes upon the saints as they embank upon such a venture. Isa28:6 “And for a Spirit of judgment to him that sitted in judgment “Heavenly authority is that Spirit of justice, As you can deduce from this scriptural analysis , we are not just lifted up to heaven for showmanship , but it carries a heavenly responsibility, , and amongst which are to Lord it over the earth with heavenly authority. Now come to think of it. Why did God through Christ sufferings on the cross, and subsequent resurrection, cleanse us by the blood from all sins, and He justified us to have a right standing with Him.Eph2:2-5 “ Wherein in time past, ye walked according to the course of this world, according the Prince of the power of the air, the spirit that worketh in the children of disobedience; Among whom also we all had our conversation, in times past in the lust of our flesh, fulfilling the desire of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature `the children of wrath even as others; But God, who is rich in mercy for His great love where with He loved us; Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, ( by grace ye are saved), God does not make mistakes, so that He dealt with our sin nature before lifting us into the judgmental seat with Christ to pass judgment over the issues upon the earth as the Spirit of judgment moves, and inspires us. God our Father’s greatest desire is to see that we prosper in wealth and flow in divine health, but it has to be in accordance to the level of the prosperity of our soul. 3Jn2 “ Brethren , I wish above all things that ye mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth” That is to say that our Lord Jesus Christ did not go to the cross and subsequently the grave for nothing, because the bible said that His resurrection was for the purpose of birthing us in to an everlasting kingdom heritage, and the scripture can not be broken.1Pt1;1-4 ”Peter an Apostle of Jesus Christ, , writing to the elect, exiles of the dispersion, scattered, sowed abroad in Pontius, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. Who are chosen and foreknown by God, and consecrated, sanctified, made Holy by the Spirit of God to be obedient to Jesus Christ, to be sprinkled with His blood, May Grace, Spiritual blessings, and peace be given you in increasing abundance, that spiritual peace to be realized through freedom fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts; Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, by His boundless mercy, we have been born again to ever living hope, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead; Born anew into an everlasting inheritance which is beyond the reach of change, and decay, (imperishable) unsullied, and unfading, reserved in heaven for you.” This is the will of God our father for every sons and daughters of God through Jesus Christ. But it is in our own spiritual interest to access these kingdom heritages, through the wisdom that is revealed through justification for honour. This is why you must understand the mystery of justification by your utterances, which also must follow the due process. We all know from scriptural insights that our mouth plays a major role in our justification, because Jesus Christ said that with the word of our mouth we shall be justified or be condemned, Math12;37 ”For by your words you will be justified, and acquainted,and by your words, you shall be condemned and sentenced” and another scripture said that we should declare that we may be justified, and we also know from scriptures that the moment you are justified you are glorified, which means that you lay hold on your kingdom heritage which release the glory of God upon your Christian journey, but the truth is that for your word to be acceptable with the right effect, it must come from a heart that has spent some time meditating on the relevant scriptures. DUE PROCESS: The bible said in the book of Lam3:37” Who is he who said and it comes to pass when the Lord has not authorized and commanded it?” therefore for your word to carry the reasonable spiritual power for effect, it must be as God commanded it, and this is only possible when and only when your words agree with what the Lord is saying over a particular issue. And this is made possible if we engage our heart to meditate on the word of God, To meditate on the word of God is a process of thinking through the word of God on the what, where, who, whom, when and how of the word. The book of Psalms says that to meditate on the word of God day and night is likened unto a tree planted by the rivers of living waters, that brings forth it’s leaves in due season, Ps1:1-3 “ Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, following their plans and their purpose, nor stands submissive and inactive in the path where the sinners walk nor sit down to relax and rest where the scornful and the mockers gather: But his desire and delight are in the law of the Lord, and His law and His precepts, the instructions and teaching of God, he habitually meditates, ponders, and studies, by day and by night: He shall be like a tree firmly planted and tended by the streams of waters, ready to bring forth it’s fruits in it’s season, it’s leaves also shall not fade or wither, and every thing he does shall prosper, and come to maturity,” This is same was repeated clearly in the books of Ezek31:3-7 “Behold I liken you to Assyria, a cedar in Lebanon, with fair branches, and forest like shade, and of high stature, with it’s top among the thick boughs, even among the clouds: The waters nourished it, the deep made it tall, it’s rivers ran round aboutit’s planting, sending all it’s streams to all the trees of the forest: Therefore it towered higher than all the trees of the forest, it’s boughs were multiplied, and it’s branches became king, because they was much water where the shot forth: All the birds of the heavens made their nest in the it’s boughs, and under it’s branches all the wild beast of the field brought their young ones, and under it’s shadow dwelt all the great nations: Then was it beautiful in it’s greatness, in the length of it’s branches, for it’s root was by many and great waters” This is the great insight that is derived from the trees that is beside great waters, and it is likened unto anyone who meditates on the scriptures, which goes to establish the truth that meditating on the word of God is the drawing the water of the life of God embedded in the word into his spiritual tentacles. And as you engage in this hot room of meditation you will inevitably come out with inspired understanding of the scriptures you have subjected unto deep thought. This inspired understanding is the same as the voice of the Lord which comes to us as in the night as one who keeps a solemnity, waiting for the voice of the Lord which is upon many waters, or multitude of words. and is also likened unto Ps 29:1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. 5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.(KJV) And this comes as an inspired understanding, or an unusual understanding as we engage in the meditation of the word of God. This inspired understanding is known as rhema, which involves the process of bringing the logo of eternity into your time and space for your use, in according to the issue at stake per time. And as you receive the understanding of this particular scripture through meditation in the night watches, the voice that you receive is the voice of God which is the foundation for God’s kind of faith, because the bible said that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, so that it is not just hearing , but hearing by the word of God, that generates faith.This voice from the scripture is the same as the one our Lord Jesus was saying in the book of Math10:27, “What ever I tell you in the dark, say it in the light, and what ever I tell in your ear, declare, proclaim and shout at the roof top” What ever you command in this situation it as if God Himself is the one giving the command, because you have the heavens backing, at your disposal. This is the answer to the question in the book of Lam3:37, this is also given credence in the book of Math16:18, “Whatever you bind here on the earth is bound in heaven, and whatever you declare to be improper here on the earth is also declared to be improper in heaven”. And again there are two ways to this issue, the declaration and the aspect of the decree that must be established. And there are certain details that must be properly understood, for you to be in the right position to benefit from this insight in full measure, because the bible said that not knowing how to use our mouth is the reason why we are called babes. Heb5:11-14 “Concerning this, we have say, which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your spiritual hearing, and sluggish, and even slothful in achieving spiritual insight: For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s word; You have come to need milk and not solid food: For every one who continues to feed on milk, is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness, of conformity to the divine will, in purpose, thought, and action: But solid food is for full grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties, are trained by practice, to distinguish between what is morally good and noble, and what is evil and contrary to either divine or human law”And these are all proves of the usage to which we put our mouths. This must be what Apostles Paul was clarifying in the book of Gal4:1-4 “what I mean is that as long as the inheritor (heir) is a child and under age, he does not differ from a slave, although he is the master of all the estate; But he is under guardians and administrations or trustees until the date fixed by the father: So we also when we were minors were kept like slaves, under the rules and subject to elementary teachings of a system of external observations and regulations No wonder Jesus said in the book of Mt 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.(KJV) you are justified by the word of your mouth, because your mouth is your pen with which you sign your checks of life withdrawer. Ps45:1 My heart overflows with goodly theme; I address my psalms to a king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready writer This shows that we must be careful with the kind of words that comes out from our mouth, and if we actually need that our words carry the right effect with desired result, then we must follow this insight with absolute doggedness. And that bring us to these two fundamental issues of declaring or proclaiming, and decreeing to be established. To declare anything requires that you lift up your voice and declare it whether publicly, or alone, but it is much more effective when you declare it publicly, just as Jesus declared before His disciples that no body will eat of the tree that did not bear fruit, and it happened as He said it. So long as you have taken time to meditate on the relevant scriptures, declaring it should not be a problem, because you must declare it with expectation of an accompanying signs, Prov24:13-14 “My son eat thou honey, because it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb which is sweet to thy taste: So you shall know skilful and godly wisdom to be thus to your life; if you find it then there shall be expectation, and your expectation shall not be cut off” The voice of rhema gladdens the heart as if one is eating a very delicious meal, Jer15:16 “Your word was found, and I did eat them , and your words were the rejoicing of my heart, for I’ am called by your name, oh Lord of Host” Any time you catch a real rhema it rejoices your soul, it gladdens your heart, because it carries the very presence of God which the bible said that in His presence there is fullness of joy, so that your declaration is accompanied with so much joy and gladness of hart, this joy is the acid text of a true rhema. And again to decree it is different ball game altogether, Job 22:21 "Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.22 Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.23 If you return to the Almighty and humble yourself, if you remove unrighteousness far from your tents,24 if you lay gold in the dust, and gold of Ophir among the stones of the torrent bed,25 and if the Almighty is your gold, and your precious silver;26 then you will delight yourself in the Almighty, and lift up your face to God.27 You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you; and you will pay your vows.28 You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.(RSV) 27 You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you; and you will pay your vows.28 You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways. Look at the highlighted word, which says that when we pray unto Him, He will hear us, and when we decide a matter it will be established. Let us look at the same word from King James version. Job 22:21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.22 Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.23 If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.24 Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.25 Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.(KJV) 27 Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: And the light shall shine upon thy ways. Therefore to decree a thing is to actually decide how the matter will certainly go.This is one of the greatest mystery of the bible, on how to empower the words of your mouth, for a fulfilled Christian race, and to enjoy the best that is available in your kingdom heritage, from God through Jesus Christ., It means that before you decree any thing and expect the almighty to establish it in your favor, you must do your home work very well, such as, putting iniquity far from your tabernacle by becoming a child of God through the completed work of the cross, which is why God Himself justified us by the work of the cross, and subsequent resurrection of Jesus Christ, then let the Lord Himself be your gold, silver and treasure, be contented with you have per time , and having located a rhema through meditation of scriptures with the attendant evidence of joy as a proof that what you have located is a rhema indeed, then take a precious and costly sacrifice on behalf of the rhema, lay it before the alter of God as a sacrifice, and make your decree , giving it time and space. , the bible said that in the book. Isa 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.(KJV) It makes your voice to be heard on high. You need to meditate on the relevant scripture that applies to the situation at hand, and then make a commiserate level of sacrifice before you decree anything, because it enforces what ever you have decided, and surely heaven will back you up with speed and effect.

ARE YOU BUILDING BARNS OR YOU'RE BUILDING LIVES?

Believers love boat - Festus Omorusi
ARE YOU BUILDING BARNS OR YOU'RE BUILDING LIVES?
"...you fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?" - Luke 12:20
“A fool is a person who acts unwisely or imprudently; a silly person. Some might refer to a fool as a blockhead. Jesus Christ tells of someone who acted like a huge fool. “A certain rich man was very productive and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do since I have no place to store all that I have?’ He decided to tear down his barns and build larger ones and then store all his grain and goods. Then he said, ‘I have many goods laid up for years to come; now I’ll take it easy and eat, drink, and be merry!'”
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life is required of you and now who will own all that you have?’ So is the man who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
Question: When are you going to pause long enough from pursuing bigger barns and dreaming of how to fill them up, to start thinking about your soul? All that counts is “Do you know God?” and “What have you done for God and your fellow man?” Don’t be a blockhead. Affect a life with what you have, touch someone's life with your resources, don't wait to be cajoled or sweet tongued by a preacher, cultivate the habit of deliberately being a blessing to somebody else as regularly as possible.
Quit acting foolish and get things right with God through Jesus Christ. And do it today!
Pray with me; Lord activate your compassion within me afresh and teach me to be a blessing in Jesus name!
May your day be filled with peace and gladness in Jesus name!
