DISCIPLESHIP PART 1

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1170
 
John 1:20-21[NET]
20 He came right out and said, "I am not the Messiah." 21 "Well then, who are you?" they asked. "Are you Elijah?" "No," he replied. "Are you the Prophet we are expecting?" "No."


John the Baptist was born to be the forerunner of Jesus Christ. He was the last prophet to be revealed before Jesus would be manifested.

John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah (Matt 17:10-13). Now, this does not mean that Elijah reincarnated, it simply means that John the Baptist was carrying the same mantle and anointing that Elijah had. But the surprising thing is that John the Baptist didn't know this. Today’s Bible text makes that quite clear.

I believe that God never told John that he had the anointing of Elijah because He had already told John’s father, and John’s father was probably expected to tell John (there was no instruction to the contrary). When the Angel appeared to John’s father to tell him about the birth of John, the angel told him that John would come in the spirit and power of Elijah (see Luke 1:17).

The Bible records that John the Baptist, even though he fulfilled his prophetic calling, he never performed any great miracles (see John 10:41). I believe that if John the Baptist had known that he came in the Spirit and POWER of Elijah, he would have performed great miracles like Elijah did.

Lessons from today’s meditation:
If you have a father in the Lord or discipler, there are some things that the Lord may reveal to him/her about you that you may not know about yourself. Proper discipleship uncovers hidden potentials.

Spiritual power comes as a result of revelation. You may have the potential to do certain things but you may never do them if you do not know you have the ability.
Go into today asking the Lord to reveal who you are to you.

PROPHETS GIVE WITNESS

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1169
 
Acts 10:43 [KJV]
43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.


One of the reasons it took thousands of years after Adam before Jesus could be manifested was because the prophets who would prophesy concerning His coming and create the spiritual framework for His manifestation on the earth had to come first. John the Baptist was the last of them to come before Christ (see Mat 17:10-13). All the prophets from Enoch to John the Baptist bore witness of His coming, and they released words into the earth (from the heart of God) that would make it possible for Christ to be revealed. In preparation for Christ’s coming, the word of God had to be constantly released by the prophets for thousands of years. Jesus is the word made flesh.

A prophecy is different from a prediction or word of knowledge. A prophetic word is creative, and the prophet usually speaks for the Lord when he prophesies. You may hear something like “thus says the Lord…” and then the prophet begins to speaks as if he is the Lord. A good example is “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more…” (Isaiah 43:25). That was Isaiah speaking for the Lord.

When a person tells you what you ate yesterday, or tells you your house address, that is a word of knowledge; a manifestation of a prophetic gift, but that is not a prophecy. A seer sees things and hears things, but a prophet receives inspiration and speaks for God. He releases words into territories upon which the manifestation of God’s agenda will ride. A prophet creates the spiritual frameworks for the physical manifestation of God’s will on the earth.

Go into today understanding that the prophetic office is very important and needed in the body of Christ today. Prophecies have the creative power that is God’s word.

GRACE AND RICHES

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1168
 
2 Cor 8:9 [NET]
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although he was rich, he became poor for your sakes, so that you by his poverty could become rich.


In every human society, there is a level of respect rich people command that poor people do not. What many do not know is that it is also so in the spirit realm. There is a level of spiritual riches a person will have that he will command great respect in the realm of the spirit. These are people whose words are powerful in that realm (see Acts 19:15).

The riches of Christ are true riches. The riches of this world cannot compare to it. Anyone who has the riches of Christ is rich indeed. It means even on this earth, his riches in glory can speak for him. But anyone who only has riches in this world is spiritually wretched (see Rev 3:17). The smallest demon can make his life miserable and rob him of everything he has in a matter of days.

Although Jesus was rich, for your sake He became poor, so that through His poverty He could make you rich. This is a function of grace. Those who will receive the riches that Christ brings are those who know His grace (see 2 Cor 8:9). The grace of the Lord is a spiritual substance that empowers people from the inner man ( see Phil 1:25, Gal 6:18). It is the reason why Christians can resist sin; it takes away the appetite for sin. It is the reason why a nonentity in life can become somebody. This same power can make you rich indeed.

Go into today knowing that the secret to your spiritual and physical wealth is knowledge of Christ’s grace. This grace is supplied to your spirit by the Holy Spirit living within you.

Prayer: Ask that grace will be multiplied to you from today (see 2 Pet 1:2).

I AM STANDING AT THE DOOR AND KNOCKING

 
πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1167

Rev 3:20-22[NET]
20 Listen! I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come into his home and share a meal with him, and he with me. 21 I will grant the one who conquers permission to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.


From when he was in the university, Ikenna knew that there was a call of God upon his life. He knew he would have to seek God for clearer specifics and details, but this never happened.

Immediately he finished from the university, he went for his country’s mandatory youth service corps for one year. During that period, he had several opportunities to seek the face of the Lord, but he spent all that time looking for opportunities for a 'better life'. He spent all his time applying for jobs and scholarships to various graduate programs in university campuses around the world, but he relegated God’s call on this life to the background. All the while, Jesus was still knocking.

By the time Ikenna was 49 years, he looked at his life and all his achievements, but he knew he had missed it concerning divine destiny. He had spent the best years of his life chasing money.

We see in today’s Bible text that the one who conquers will sit with Christ on His throne. Christ will rule the entire universe, and the one who conquers will rule and reign with Him on His throne.

Many Christians have been deceived to think that escaping hell and making heaven is the ultimate goal, they fail to realize that God did not just destine us to see the kingdom; He destined us to inherit the kingdom. Conquerors are not those who just escaped hell, they are those who conquered life for Christ: they are those who conquered territories for Christ and fulfilled their divine destiny.

GOD’S DISCIPLINE 2

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1166

Rev 3:19 [NET]
All those I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent!

Remi was a very sickly person. When she became born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit, she was no longer sickly but became very healthy.
A time came that she became overtaken by a dieting fad. She started to believe that her diet was all that mattered with regard to her good health. Because of this, her faith for health was now in her good dieting and no more in the finished work of Christ. Because of this, she became very sickly again.

After doing everything she knew, including prayers, Remi concluded that her depreciating health was God’s will. But she was very wrong.

Good diet is good, and it is God’s will for His children to be careful with what they eat and how they live. But when Christians follow diets so much that they forget that it is ultimately the power of Christ that is responsible for keeping them in good health, they would walk out of God’s divine health and make themselves absolutely responsible for their health. This means when an affliction is spiritually orchestrated, they would be vulnerable.

Many Christians go through situations that are a result of their spiritual ignorance, but many erroneously conclude that ‘it is the discipline of the Lord’ or 'it is the will of the Lord’.

Go into today knowing that when God disciplines His children, it is to bring out the best in them, not to destroy them.

GOD’S DISCIPLINE

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/2audio1165
 
Rev 3:19 [NET]
All those I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent!


Audu was from a polygamous family. He had very many brothers and sisters. As Audu grew up, he realized that it was because his father loved him so much that he gave him special attention and discipline. He knew this because his father later willed the largest portion of his fortune to him, much more than what any other member of the family got or even knew their father had.

So when Audu read Bible verses that talk about the Lord disciplining those He loves, it was easy for Audu to understand (see 1 Cor 11:32, Deut 8:5, Heb 12:5-11, etc)

In Prov 3:11, we see that it is possible for us to despise the discipline of the Lord. The easiest way many Christians do this is by denying that there is such a thing. But if you are walking in fellowship with God, you will know when your Father is not pleased, and you will be able to discern when the things happening in your life are because your Father is not pleased.

Despising God’s discipline may be trying to use your spiritual power of faith to ‘cast and bind’-turning a blind eye to the fact that there is the need for repentance and alignment with God (see Prov 16:17), but insisting that you have your way [like a spoilt child throwing tantrums when disciplined]. Many times, our loving Father may withdraw the discipline and give the child what he wants because of his constant crying, but the bitter truth is that that child has failed to learn and grow more into the likeness of Christ. This will ultimately make him unfit for the greater glory God wants to shed his way.

Go into today knowing that way to respond to the Lord’s discipline is by repenting (See Rev 3: 19).

Ask the Lord to help you know when He is disciplining. Ask the Lord to help you grow into the fullness of Christ (Eph 4:13).

BUY GOLD FROM ME

πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1164

Rev 3:18 [NET]
...take my advice and buy gold from me refined by fire so you can become rich! Buy from me white clothing so you can be clothed and your shameful nakedness will not be exposed, and buy eye salve to put on your eyes so you can see!


Femi had believed in the Lord Jesus and was baptized in the Holy Spirit. He had also been properly taught and knew how to wield his spiritual power of faith. Unfortunately, all he really wanted out of life was more and more money, he didn’t care much about the kingdom of God. He just wanted to get more money in life. This was all he used his faith [spiritual power] to acquire.

If a Christian spends his life serving mammon, he is buying what the devil has to offer. He may be rich in this world, but he is poor in the kingdom of heaven because he has spent his life serving mammon at the expense of serving God.

When a Christian spends his life serving God, he is buying what Jesus offers (see Rev 3:18). He may or may not be rich in this world, but he is rich in the kingdom of God because he has spent his life in acquiring true riches that will last for all eternity.

Do not forget that God knows the things you need even before you know you need them. The cattle on a thousand hills belong to Him (Ps 50:7). This means at any time, God has at least 1000 ways of providing for you [when you seek Him above all else]. When God makes you rich, He adds no sorrows to it.

Go into today knowing that as a child of God, you have the purchasing power. You can either chose to spend your spiritual capital seeking mammon and earthly riches or spend it seeking the kingdom and eternal wealth of Christ.

NEITHER HOT NOR COLD

 
πŸ”Š Get The Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1163

Rev 3:16-17 [NET]
So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth! 17 Because you say, "I am rich and have acquired great wealth, and need nothing," but do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.


The church in Laodicea was lukewarm because they had become worldly. This worldliness manifested in their focus on material things rather than eternal things.

You see, you can focus all your spiritual energy (use the power of grace and faith) on only earthly riches, when its real purpose was for eternal riches. Earthly riches are but an addendum.

When a Christian focuses on physical wealth instead of the kingdom of God, chances are that he will get what he wants if he is well taught on how to apply all the [spiritual] principles. But such a Christian will be spiritually impoverished. His pitiful state will be obvious when real life begins in our eternal kingdom.

The church in Laodicea boasted and thought they were doing fine because they had physical wealth, but they did not know that their true spiritual state was pitiful; they were wretched, poor, blind and naked.

It is not possible to serve God and mammon (see Matt 6:4). Unfortunately, many Christians have been overtaken by the love of money, and this has made them unfruitful in the kingdom.

Go into today knowing that if your goal in life is no more centered on advancing in the kingdom of God, you are now serving mammon.

Those who serve God understand that life is a privilege to serve, please and know God in this realm of time; a realm that presents the opportunity to be conformed to God’s image and become His son for eternity (see John 1:12, Rom 8:19). They understand that whatever they do to get money is but a means to this end.

THE ORIGINATOR OF GOD'S CREATION

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1162

Rev 3:14-15  [NET]
14 "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write the following: "This is the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God's creation.



Kandra found it very difficult to believe that the man she met at the reception was the CEO of that big company she visited. He didn’t have any air of pride around him, was very polite and gave her directions when she asked for the HR department.

Shola: I think you have met our CEO. I just saw you talking with him on my security video feed.

Kandra: No way! That man I talked to was a receptionist. He told me how to get here.

Shola: he is indeed our CEO. You see, on some Mondays like this, he leaves his office on the top floor and goes to any of the lower departments to work. He says this helps him to better understand all the units of production.

Kandra became uncomfortable and even nervous. She still did not fully believe Shola until the next time she visited the company, and this time she saw the CEO in all his glory.

It has been very hard for many to accept that Jesus is God come in the flesh because of the way He came and lived humbly among us. For many, when they will realize this truth, it would be too late to accept the salvation, peace and divine glory He came to restore to mankind.

In today’s Bible text, we see the Lord, introducing himself as the originator of God’s creation. It is only through Him that you can fellowship with the Father and receive power to fulfill your glorious eternal destiny.

Go into today thanking the Lord for coming to help you. Pray for your loved ones who do not yet know Him.

THE WORLD AND THE CHURCH

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1161

Rev 3:14-15
14 "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write the following: "This is the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God's creation: 15 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot!


There was a stream that flowed through Laodicea whose source was not very far from the city. The stream was from a hot water spring. The water from that spring had a unique salty taste. Because of this, the water was best drunk hot or cold.

By the time the spring water got to the city of Laodicea, the water was no more hot but now lukewarm, and if anyone drank it lukewarm, it was very unpleasant and could make the person vomit.

Unfortunately, the church at Laodicea had taken the characteristic of the water that flowed into their city from the hot spring- they had become lukewarm.

Christians become lukewarm when they fellowship with the world and begin to gradually conform to the world. The atmosphere of the world is contrary to our faith. This means we must be careful not to conform to the world when we interact with the world.

Many Christians have become worldly because their outlook is shaped by the things in the world not by the word of God. This happens when Christians continue to fellowship with the world. When a Christian becomes worldly, he loses his spiritual fervor and becomes lukewarm.

Lukewarm Christians end up being a stumbling block to the advancement of the kingdom of Christ. They give Christ poor representation on the earth.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you keep your fervor and kingdom relevance.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me remain hot for you and never become lukewarm.

INTIMIDATION

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1160
 
Nehemiah 6:9 [HT]
“For they were all trying to intimidate us, saying “they will all become discouraged in the work, and it will never be finished.” But now, my God, Strengthen me.”

One of the strategies the enemy employs to hinder what God is doing in your life is elaborately shown in Nehemiah’s experience, and that is intimidation. The devil tries to do everything possible to introduce fear into your life thus intimidating you out of God’s will and plan for your life.

There’s only one way to deal with the enemy’s intimidation: know who you are in Christ and stand firm. Stand firm on God’s promises for your life. Practice living in faith and walking with God in your daily life. Stay in constant communion with the Holy Spirit, meditate on the word and focus on God. Surround yourself with men and women of faith. As long as you are in this world, the enemy will try to intimidate you and challenge your faith. There is a need to be steadfast in your faith as you plant your hope in heaven above. Learn to focus on God and not on your immediate surroundings. Search the scriptures and find ways to strengthen your faith and grow in faith.

Never give in to fear, fear will make you wander out of divine covering, stand firm and trust God. Never forget that “The eternal God is thy dwelling-place, and underneath are the everlasting arms...” (Deuteronomy 33:27) The enemy can’t touch you when you are in His arms.

THE BEAST FROM THE SEA

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1159

Revelation 13:1[ASV]
And he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns, and seven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.

Read Revelation 13:1-10

In this scripture, we see that the beast exerted great influence and authority over the earth. The beast was permitted to wage war against the saints. This war against the saints manifests in various dimensions, from deception that leads to heresies or actual denial of the faith to physical killing of Christians. Satan kills Christians through the influence of the beast. The question here should not be who the beast is or when the beast is, but rather, will we succumb to the beastly influence that is fighting for our allegiance?

Dear friend, there is a beastly influence, invisible to the human eye, that has been released over our campuses, offices, the political sphere and even the church, too powerful for any human resistance. This beastly influence challenges the authority of God in our lives. How does the beast conquer the saints? Whenever a Christian denies Jesus in the face of persecution or abandons the faith due to pressure, he has given in to the beastly influence. This influence also encourages believers to live habitually in sin.

The way you will overcome the power of the beast is 'by the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony' (see Rev 12:11). The blood cleanses you from all sin; removing the leverage and license the beast would have had over you.
The word of your testimony is the word of God that has become Rhema to you. These are God’s promises that have become your own [through revelation].

Go into today knowing that you have been given power over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). If you remain in Christ Jesus, you are the overcomer.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me. I ask that you help me always walk in your light and conquer the forces of darkness against me. Amen.

PILLARS IN GOD'S TEMPLE



πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1158

Rev 3:12-13 [NET]
12 The one who conquers I will make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never depart from it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God (the new Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven from my God), and my new name as well. 13 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.


Unlike walls or furniture, pillars are very important and more permanent structural elements in any building.

David said by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that “…and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever ” (see Psa 23:6). When the Lord says He will make those who conquer pillars in the temple of God, He is saying overcomers will never be removed from the presence of God for all eternity. Saints are not just called to be people who will dwell closely with God for part of eternity, but we will dwell in the house of the Lord for all eternity.

In heaven, dwelling in the presence of God is a very, very great honor, and it means power. Angels brag about this (see Luke 1:19). We who overcome are going to be pillars in the temple of God. This means we are not just going to be part of God’s presence, but we are going to be important parts of God’s temple. I am talking about the God who is the creator and Sustainer of the universe; the God whose power and glory cannot be comprehended by the human mind.

I don’t know what we ever did or could ever do to deserve this great honor and glory that God has destined for us. It is unmerited favor.

Go into today thanking the Father for the great love He has lavished upon you; that you should become a son of God (see 1 John 3:1).

Confession: I am an overcomer in Jesus Name. I will inherit everything God has prepared for me in Jesus name. Amen.

YOUR CROWN 2

 
πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1157
 
Rev 3:11 [NET]
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have so that no one can take away your crown.


Nkechi knew she was supposed to be singing and using her beautiful voice to edify many and draw them to the kingdom of God. But she was too busy with her bank job to think about that.

One day, she lost her job and had to pray to the Lord to help her find another one or find something productive to do. As she prayed, she knew that her prayers were not going anywhere. She started asking the Lord why she didn’t feel the flow of His Spirit and the normal assurance she would receive when she prayed.

The next day, she heard her pastor preaching from John 15. He said that the reason many Christians do not see answered prayers is because they are not fruitful (see John 15:16). He went on to define fruitfulness as when your life produces the fruit of the spirit and also when it produces the fruit of God’s investment in you. The pastor now went on to use singing as an example. That if a Christian hides (ignores) his talent and ministry, that Christian is not fruitful.

Nkechi broke down in tears and repented. She knew she had been playing with her crown and walking in disobedience. The next week, she applied to join the choir.

Many Christians are walking in half of their spiritual authority and power because they are not fully walking in their calling. They don’t realize that the reason the men of God [they run to] are walking in more spiritual authority is because they are more fully committed to their calling. Not necessarily because they are more holy.

Go into today knowing that your crown signifies authority. Christians give away their authority when they are more committed to serving mammon than serving God.
Ask the Lord to help you in this regard.

WHERE DID CAIN GET HIS WIFE?

Many events recorded in scripture were not recorded according to a timeline, but according to relevant events in the current narrative. For example, Bible Scholars have established that the story of Job happened before the story of Abraham. Again, from a careful calculation, you will find out that in Genesis 6 where the earth was being populated by the Nephilim race, Adam was still alive. Also, if you calculate properly, you would see that Abraham most likely met Noah alive before Noah died. Noah lived for 950 years.

When you have people living for up to 900 years, they could see up to twenty generations of their children before they die.

Even though the Bible’s report of Cain’s Judgment came immediately after his crime, the Bible never stated that the judgment was immediate.

From other Bible references showing the way God responds and judge people based on the cry of the earth, God's response is not usually very immediate, but it can take up to 300 to 400 years for God to respond in judgment to a cry from the earth (as in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, or the land of Canaan).

The assumption that God judged Cain immediately he killed his brother may not be very accurate. The judgment of God on Cain most likely came years after he killed his brother. By this time, Adam already had Seth and the many other sons and daughters whose names were not recorded in Genesis. These had populated the earth. Genesis 5:4 clearly states that Adam had other sons and daughters besides Cain, Abel, and Seth.

Because people lived very long in those days, if God judged Cain 400 years after he killed his brother Abel, by this time, Adam already had many other descendants from whom Cain could have easily taken a wife. As a matter of fact, in 400 years, Adam would have had several generations of grandchildren. 400 years is a long time (remember that the children of Jacob who went to Egypt were about 70 in number. That number increased to millions in just 430 years of being in Egypt).

It is reasonable to believe that Cain no longer had a good relationship with his parents after what he did to his only brother. This could have affected the speed with which Cain would get married. Seth must have been given one of his sisters to wife, but not Cain. And this trend and anger against Cain may have continued for a very, very long time.

Bear in mind that in that generation, incest was neither a sin nor a crime (that was the only way humankind could multiply). In fact, the other [many] sons and daughters of Adam married each other and had many children, but Adam may have bluntly refused to give his murderous son any of his daughters to marry, or Cain wouldn't have the courage to ask.

If God judged Cain 300 years after he killed his brother (which is more likely), the earth was already populated with thousands of human beings through Adam and his other descendants.

If you assume that Cain received his judgment immediately he committed his crime, it would be impossible to understand where he got his wife. But if you understand that Cain’s judgment came years after his crime (and there is no scriptural reason not to believe this), it would be easy to understand where he got a wife, and where the people who he was afraid of came from.



NB: if you take a close look at these verses below, one could assume that Shem died before his son Arphaxad had children. But in reality, Shem remained alive to see the days of Abraham because he lived for 500 years and Abraham was born less than four hundred years after Arphaxad was born.

Genesis 11:10-17 (NET)
This is the account of Shem. Shem was 100 old when he became the father of Arphaxad, two years after the flood.
And after becoming the father of Arphaxad, Shem lived 500 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Arphaxad had lived 35 years, he became the father of Shelah…

YOUR CROWN

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1156
 
Rev 3:11 [NET]
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have so that no one can take away your crown.


When Christ returns to take over the government of this world (Rev 11:15), He will not rule the entire earth alone, but will rule and judge with His saints (see 1 Cor 6:2-3). He will apportion territories and dominion according to our kingdom ranking. Some will be given ten cities to rule while some will be given 5, etc. (see Luke 19:11-19). Your ranking and reward is based on how you are faithful with the little God has entrusted to you in this time (see Luk 16:10).

I believe one reason we would be given crowns is because we will be given territories to rule. Crowns are given to rulers; they are not just symbols for reward.

God does not do anything without first concluding it in the realm of eternity. Your lot and portion in the kingdom of God (including your crowns) has been concluded from before the foundation of the world. If you fulfill your calling here on earth by yielding to God’s foreordained will through obedience to His word and Spirit, you will receive your crown of dominion, and territories to rule in the coming kingdom. But if for some reason, you refuse to align your will with the will of God to fulfill your calling, like the unfaithful servant in Luke 29:23-24, what you have (your throne and crown) will be given to someone else. There can be no vacant throne in the coming kingdom.

Go into today knowing that God wants you to fulfill your destiny more than you want to fulfill it. Ask the Lord to deliver you from all [satanic] deception and procrastination. Ask him to lead you in the path of righteousness [and destiny] for His name’s sake.

BECAUSE YOU HAVE KEPT MY ADMONITION

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1155
Rev 3:10 [NET]
Because you have kept my admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth.

As Femi started to seek the Lord in prayer and fasting for the year, one of the first things he did was to ask the Lord what improvements he needed to make in his life to walk better in pleasing the Lord. He sensed the Lord leading him to be more committed to prayers this year. When he got to church in the evening, he received a confirmation to that admonition. It was now clear to Femi that he needed to set aside some time every night to pray and spend time with the Lord henceforth.

In today’s Bible text, Jesus talked about an hour of testing. IN 1 Cor 7:26, Apostle Paul also made reference [by the spirit of prophecy] to an Impending crisis. History has it that around that period, Christians everywhere were persecuted by the very powerful Roman Empire which ruled the world. The Empire made it a duty to persecute and kill Christians everywhere, and they used their very vast resources to do this. But the Church in Philadelphia was going to be spared from this testing because they always kept the Lord’s admonition to them.

The Lord has the power to preserve His own from global or national occurrences that appear inescapable. When a person honors the Lord, the Lord honors him and would dedicate special resources for His peace and prosperity(see 1 Sam 2:30). The church at Philadelphia honored the Lord and Kept His admonition. Because of this, they were spared.

I do not know what admonition you have recently received from the Lord, but as you go into today, determine to keep the Lord’s admonition, and see His preserving grace and power multiply in every area of your life.

THE TRUE SYNAGOGUE

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1154
 
Rev 3:9 [NET]
9 Listen! I am going to make those people from the synagogue of Satan - who say they are Jews yet are not, but are lying - Look, I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

In the letters to the seven Churches, this is the second time the Lord is referring to a Jewish synagogue as the synagogue of Satan (see Rev 2:9). Indeed, those synagogues were built to be synagogues of God, but when God came through Christ and was rejected, God was no more in their synagogues but now dwells in the church (His people). And because the synagogues that were built to contain God were now vacant of God’s presence, Satan took advantage of the vacancy.

When God is rejected from any temple that was built to contain Him, Satan invites himself and takes over. Human beings were created to contain the presence of God, but when people reject Christ, they become tools in the hand of Satan, whether they know it or not.

It was important that the Lord assured the saints about the fact that they are now His people, and that people who claimed to be His people, but who opposed the church, were not His people but people who served Satan. The saints in Philadelphia needed this assurance because of unbelieving Jews who tried to make them feel that they were inferior before God as ‘Gentiles’. But the Lord now made it clear that the Christians are the superior ones, and it will be clear throughout eternity.

Go into today knowing that if you are in Christ, there is no one anywhere that is superior to you. We are born of God and royal members of His family - co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).

LOOK! AN OPEN DOOR


πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1153

Rev 3:7-9 [NET]
7 "To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write the following:
"This is the solemn pronouncement of the Holy One, the True One, who holds the key of David, who opens doors no one can shut, and shuts doors no one can open: 8 'I know your deeds. (Look! I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut.) I know that you have little strength, but you have obeyed my word and have not denied my name.


Folakemi wanted an open door so much because she understood that an open door meant opportunities for greater blessings and promotions. She did not know that an open door was already set before her. Her problem was that she couldn’t see it. She was working in a place where she literally had to deal with thousands of campus students every week, and they all held her in very high esteem. When her eyes were opened, she now saw that her influence over the students was an opportunity for her to do what the Lord had been impressing on her heart for years.

It is worthy of note that Jesus told the saints in Philadelphia to ‘LOOK! I have put in front of you an open door’. One of the biggest problems hindering people from walking into open doors is that they have not seen the doors set before them by the Lord.

An open door represents every new great opportunity provided for you to make spiritual and physical increase. One very important thing about this is that you have to see it. Secondly, you have to understand that if a particular door has been opened for you by the Lord, no person or devil can close it. This is the confidence you need to walk into your open doors.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you see every open door set before you in this season of your life. Ask for wisdom to make the best use of every opportunity set before you.

THE BOOK OF LIFE

πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1152

Rev 3:5-6 [NET]
5 The one who conquers will be dressed like them in white clothing, and I will never erase his name from the book of life, but will declare his name before my Father and before his angels. 6 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches.


Names written in the book of life were written there since the foundation of the world (see Rev 17:8 and 13:8). The reason it is possible for a person to be saved is because his name was written in the book of life. But if a person rejects Christ, his name will be erased from the book of life. The human free will is a very powerful eternal force.

There are two ways people reject Christ. The first way is when they hear the gospel and are given the opportunity to receive Christ, but they reject the opportunity each time until their time on earth is done. Jesus teaches us that the reason why people reject the light is because their deeds are evil (see John 3:19). This is a profound doctrine that I hope we would be able to revisit more comprehensively.

The second way people reject Christ is when, after they have received Him, they turn their backs on Him and practically stop believing in Him (see 2 Pet 2:20, Heb 10:26-29, 1 John 5:16, John 15:6, Mat 5:13, Heb 6:4). This is one of the scariest things that can happen on earth, but it happens. The easiest way people set themselves on this path is by continuing in willful disobedience to God, and rebellion against constituted spiritual authority. Many Christians in Sardis were going to be in danger of this if after hearing the Lord’s direct warning concerning their error they did not repent but continued to slumber into spiritual death.

Go into today asking God to keep you from the evil one [the deceiver], and to deliver you from [doing] evil (Mat 6:13).

WORKING OUT YOUR SALVATION

 
πŸ”Š Get Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1151


Phil 2:12-13 [NET]
12 So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, 13 for the one bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort - for the sake of his good pleasure - is God.


A newborn baby has nothing to do with his birth. His birth was not a product of his will, but that of his parents. When the child is born, naturally, he would want to live and not die. That is the natural instinct, and his system does everything possible to keep him alive.

As the child grows older, he continues to have the will to live, but there are certain things that he would have to do if he wants to live a healthy life. For example, his parents would instruct him to be careful with what he puts in his mouth and not eat certain harmful substances, but whether this happens is ultimately his decision not theirs.

So it is with the spiritual life. Your salvation and spiritual birth is not a function of your will, works or any such thing. It is a product of God’s will and grace (John 1:13, Eph 2:8-9). You have been born again and brought into God’s kingdom. But to stay alive and healthy, you will have to continually yield to God’s will through obedience and faith.

Go into today knowing that the reason you can work out your salvation is because God has worked it into your spirit and eternal destiny. Your glorious destiny is a partnership between God and you. You are not alone.

Ask the Lord to help you always yield to His will and leading.

THE COMING OF THE LORD

 
πŸ”ŠGet Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1150

Rev 3:3 [NET]
3 Therefore, remember what you received and heard, and obey it, and repent. If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will never know at what hour I will come against you.


I remember that when I was a child, our home was robbed in the night by armed robbers. That was a very terrifying experience. The terror of that experience stayed with us for some time.
Reading today’s Bible text also reminds me of when as a child, I used to be very afraid of the coming of the Lord because I was not sure that I was ready. His coming for me was indeed as a thief in the night, it was something that was more feared than celebrated. But as I have grown in Christ, the thought of His coming produces unspeakable joy in my heart because I know His coming is the beginning of my greatest visible glory and power for all eternity, and the end of the dominion of darkness over the world.

Christians who are not ready (who are asleep) will experience the coming of the Lord like a thief in the night, but those who are prepared will experience the coming of the Lord like an expectant bride joyfully receiving her bridegroom. In both cases, none of them will know the exact time of visitation, but those in the second category will have a joyful expectation.

1 Thess 5:4-6 [KJV]: 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief… (read vs 5-6)
Notice that it is those who are who are asleep, that will experience His coming like a thief in the night. These are those who are not prepared.

Go into today knowing that the coming of the Lord is something you should joyfully look forward to when you are prepared (see Mat 24:46). A prepared Christian is one busy doing what he has been called to do. This is only possible when you are spiritually awake.
Ask the Lord to help you stay awake.

REPENT AND WAKE UP

πŸ”ŠGet Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1149

Rev 3:3 [NET]
3 Therefore, remember what you received and heard, and obey it, and repent. If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will never know at what hour I will come against you.


Kayode was no more interested in pleasing God because God was no more real to Him. He now lived for his needs, and this meant he could do anything and commit any sin to get what he wanted. His life was no more different from that of an unbeliever.

It wasn’t always like this for Kayode. When he first believed, God was so real to him and he wanted to live his life to please God. He could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit and was led by the Spirit all the time. But as time passed, Kayode received some doctrines that made him downplay the danger of sin, and he ultimately started walking in his old sins. This was the reason he eventually got to the point where God was no more real to him.

Like some of the Christians in Sardis, many Christians have died spiritually because they have forgotten the real gospel that made them believe, and have received doctrines that make them walk in the flesh and think it does not affect their eternal life. But we have seen that when Christians walk in the flesh, they die spiritually (see Rom 8:13, Gal 6:8, Eph 5:3-5). If only they would remember the gospel they received, many would repent and awake from their slumber before it becomes spiritual death.

Go into today remembering that the gospel that got you saved [from sin] could not have been one that systematically condones sin.
Ask the Lord to help His children everywhere to remember what they received, and obey it.

WASHING BY THE BLOOD

Rev 3:3-5 [NET]
3 Therefore, remember what you received and heard, and obey it, and repent. If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will never know at what hour I will come against you. 4 But you have a few individuals in Sardis who have not stained their clothes, and they will walk with me dressed in white, because they are worthy.


Tade told several lies in the office, and because of this he felt so guilty that he could not pray (fellowship with God) properly. He tried to convince himself that there was nothing really wrong with what he did, but he still could not get over the guilt.

When he acknowledged his sin before God and repented, he no longer bore the guilt of that sin because he was now cleansed.

In today’s Bible text, the Lord said there were some among the Christians in Sardis who had not stained their clothes. When Christians walk in sin [the flesh], their spiritual clothes are stained. This input guilt and make them lack the boldness to fellowship with God. If this continues for long, they would die spiritually because fellowship with God is the source of spiritual life (see Rom 8:13). But when Christians confess their sins (repent), the blood of Jesus cleanses them [their garments] and washes away the guilty conscience. Confessing your sins is not informing God about your sins because He already knows; it is acknowledging that what you did is a sin, and repenting.

1 John 1:8-9: If we say we do not bear the guilt of sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, forgiving us our sins and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

The cleansing [by the blood] takes away the guilt [of sin] and makes us able to boldly fellowship with God (see Heb 10:22).

WORTHY TO WALK WITH THE LORD

 Rev 3:4 [NET]
4 But you have a few individuals in Sardis who have not stained their clothes, and they will walk with me dressed in white, because they are worthy.


When Joyce first believed, she was not a very honest person, and her words meant nothing to her. She didn’t know this was wrong, but as she grew in her walk with God, she noticed that the Lord kept revealing things in her life that were not in alignment with His righteousness. Each time this happened, she would repent, and grow in her knowledge of God and His grace (power).

We can learn from today’s Bible text that it is only those whose garments are unstained that can walk [in fellowship] with the Lord.

When a Christian walks in sin, His [spiritual] clothes are stained [by it], and he is unable to fellowship with God appropriately and walk in his spiritual authority accordingly. This cannot happen to Christians who are already walking in the light by walking in constant fellowship with God who is the light (See 1 John 1:5). Because they are walking in the light, and sin is darkness, they do not walk in sin. This does not mean they cannot be tempted and sometimes fall, but it means they cannot take their place in sin.

There are weaknesses that hinder believers from closer fellowship with God, yet these sins may be unknown to them. But as they walk in the light, the light continually reveals every darkness in them and the blood of Jesus cleanses them from it as they acknowledge (confess) it and repent (see 1 John 1:7,9). When this happens, they further advance in their knowledge (closer fellowship) of God and grow in grace and spiritual might. This is something that happens over time.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you grow in the knowledge of Him.

FREEDOM UNTO RIGHTOUSNESS

 πŸ”ŠGet the Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1146

2 Peter 2:19[NET]
Although these false teachers promise such people freedom, they themselves are enslaved to immorality. For whatever a person succumbs to, to that he is enslaved.


Dorin was sixteen when she entered campus. She was young and impressionable, and this made her look for the most adventurous of all options.
The first thing she liked about the teachers she would eventually find out to be false teachers of God’s word is that they promised freedom, and condemned other Christians as being under the law.
By the time Dorin became pregnant for a leader in the fellowship, and he denied it to her face and instigated the entire leadership against her, it was now clear to her that they were not disciples of Christ.

Most false teachers in the church promise more freedom. And because of this freedom they claim to have, they become lascivious and would do anything without feeling guilty. One of the things false doctrines seek to do to believers is to deaden their consciences and make them feel no guilt for sins they commit. But what usually happens at the end of the day is that such teachers end up being slaves to certain sins, especially immorality.

Go into today remembering that we have been free from the bondage of sin, but are now slaves to righteous living (see Rom 6:18 ESV).
Ask the Lord to help you walk in the liberty that makes a person holy and righteous.

WHAT CAUSES SPIRITUAL DEATH?

πŸ”ŠGet the Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1145 

Rev 3:1-3
"To the angel of the church in Sardis write the following:
"This is the solemn pronouncement of the one who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: 'I know your deeds, that you have a reputation that you are alive, but in reality you are dead.
2 Wake up then, and strengthen what remains that was about to die, because I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.


I have come across certain teachings that insist that it is impossible for a person who once believed in the Lord to ever lose his eternal life. That his salvation, relationship with God, and destiny in heaven was eternally sealed because of the faith he once expressed in coming out for an altar call.

This doctrine is true for the believer who continues to live under the authority of Christ and His word. But it is not true for those who continue in the flesh.

In today’s Bible text, we see the Lord warning the Church in Sardis because many of them were now spiritually dead. The Lord also mentioned 'those who were about to die' (see Rev 3:2). This clearly proves that it is possible for people who once believed unto eternal life to die spiritually. (Aslo read 2 Pet 2:20-21).

What can make Christians die spiritually?

Romans 8:13 says: (for if you live according to the flesh, you will die), but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.

A person who lives according to the flesh does not care about pleasing God; he only cares about pleasing himself. A person who lives by the Spirit lives to please God and walks above the weakness of his flesh through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Go into today remembering that God wants you to succeed in this race more than you want to succeed. Repent and forsake every work of the flesh and take advantage of His grace to walk in perpetual victory. Amen.

1 Cor 6:3 [KJV]
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

There was a video that went viral on Facebook last year. In that video, a very fat cat was trying to catch an angry rat, and instead of the cat to pursue the rat, it was the rat that now turned and was pursuing the cat. The rat pursued the cat to the extent that the cat would cry out each time the rat made contact with it. It was unbelievable.

Many Christians have been defeated in life, not because they do not have what it takes to be overcomers, but because they have failed to realize that they have what it takes. They have forgotten how powerful they really are in Christ, and cower in the face of the smallest situation that confronts them, instead of standing firm on the word of God that cannot fail.

If you are in Christ, you are naturally an overcomer. No demon should be able to stand you because you are seated in heaven far above them and have all authority over them because you are in Christ(see Eph 2:6). But devils are very daring; they will try their luck every now and then and hope you forget who you are and start reacting in fear.

There is nothing that kills boldness like sin consciousness. There is nothing that boosts boldness like righteousness consciousness (see Prov 28:1). I believe one reason the Holy Spirit brings boldness is because He gives us assurance of our righteousness with God.

Go into today determined to walk in the Spirit. This also means you will dominate your heart with the consciousness of the righteousness you have with God through the sacrifice of Christ.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you always walk in your Spiritual authority and power.

THE KINGDOM IS COMING

πŸ”ŠGet the Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1143

Rev 2:26-29 [KJV]
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.



When Christ [physically] returns, He will come with great power and glory, and He will come with us His saints (the overcomers). He will come to take over the governments of this earth. And because the rulers will not be willing to peacefully hand over power to Him, He will take it by force.

We all who are his saints will come with Christ in our glorified bodies; bodies just like that of Christ, and we shall rule and reign over the earth for 1000 years.

The city in which you currently live will most likely still be called by its current name when these things happen. The people of the world will not be able to defeat us because we will have superior (glorified) bodies that cannot be hurt. We will have superior intelligence, and superior power. The rulers of the earth will have to fall in line or be smashed (see Psa 2).

When the kingdom physically comes to the earth, the wealthiest person on earth will be less than the least in our Kingdom. Our government will be so wealthy that we would be able to afford to pave our streets with gold. And all humankind (and angels) will be under our dominion (see 1 Cor 6:2-3).

Go into today remembering that the Kingdom is coming. We have proof to show that these promises of the Lord are true: the Holy spirit within us gives us a foretaste of the powers to come, and assures us of these things.

'DEEP SECRETS'


  πŸ”ŠGet the Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1142
Rev 2:24-26 [NET]
24 But to the rest of you in Thyatira, all who do not hold to this teaching (who have not learned the so-called "deep secrets of Satan"), to you I say: I do not put any additional burden on you. 25 However, hold on to what you have until I come. 26 And to the one who conquers and who continues in my deeds until the end, I will give him authority over the nations.

There was a false doctrine pervading the Church community in her campus, and Dorin knew this because she was once in their fold (this is the same Dorin that was impregnated by one of their leaders when she was in her first year †). She had observed that those who taught and practiced this doctrine were living in iniquity, and they found scriptures to make themselves feel comfortable about their sinful lifestyles. She was once deceived by them because they claimed to know the ‘deep things’ and called every other person who didn’t believe like them ‘babes’.

What now delivered Dorin from their doctrine was her growing knowledge of Christ: she knew the Holy Spirit was grieved when she walked in the flesh. She now knew their doctrine was wrong because they made it look as if nothing changes in the spirit realm when a believer walks in sin (see Rom 8:13). They made it look as if Christ does not care much about the conduct of believers who live in sin (see Rev 2-3).

We learn from today’s Bible text that such ‘deep secrets’ that trivialize sin are not wanted in the Church.

Go into today remembering that Jesus will give you authority over the nations if you continue in His works till the end. The works of Christ are sponsored by grace through faith, not by legalism through laws.
Ask the Lord to help you do the works of Him that sent you while it is day (John 9:4).

A PROPHETIC MESSAGE FOR 2017

πŸ”ŠGet Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1141

Rev 2:21-24 [NET]
1 I have given her time to repent, but she is not willing to repent of her sexual immorality. 22 Look! I am throwing her onto a bed of violent illness, and those who commit adultery with her into terrible suffering, unless they repent of her deeds. 23 Furthermore, I will strike her followers with a deadly disease, and then all the churches will know that I am the one who searches minds and hearts. I will repay each one of you what your deeds deserve.


This is a word from the Lord for 2017 concerning those who have believed and taught certain doctrines that have made saints become lascivious, and many have fallen into diverse sins because of these doctrines.

In 2017, The Lord will judge the teachers and followers of these doctrines that have caused many in His church to stumble.

Jesus has given them a chance to repent, and there is still chance now. But if they do not repent, what comes next is judgment [similar to that announced in today’s Bible text].

False doctrine is usually introduced to the body by those who have attained a certain level of authority and honor in the church. But when false doctrine comes in, it ultimately produces destruction.

One of the ways false doctrine is identified is by its fruit of destruction. It always leaves destruction in its wake, and its victims are always marred by it. Please don’t be a victim (see 1 John 3:7-9).

Go into today asking the Holy Spirit to show you every area of error in your life. This beginning part of the year is a good season to seek the face of the Lord.

I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW

πŸ”ŠGet Audio Version Here☞ http://bit.ly/audio1140

Rev 21:5 [KJV]
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new...


When I was asking the Lord for a word concerning the New Year, it was impressed upon my heart that this New Year is going to be a fresh start for many. God is opening a new page for you and giving back all the opportunities you have lost.

Hear the words of an elementary school teacher:
He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done.
“Have you a new sheet for me, dear teacher?
I’ve spoiled this one.”
I took his sheet, all soiled and blotted and gave him a new one all unspotted.
And into his tired heart I cried, “Do better now, my child.”

I went to the throne with a trembling heart, the day was done.
“Have you a new day for me, dear Master?
I’ve spoiled this one.” He took my day, all soiled and blotted and gave me a new one all unspotted.
And into my tired heart he cried, “Do better now, my child.”

In this New Year, the Lord is giving you a fresh start and saying to you “do better now, my child”.

Go into today determining to rely on Christ all the way. Make sure your heart is always filled with the joy of Lord, no matter the circumstances. Grace flows better in an atmosphere of joy.
Ask the Lord to come and fill your heart and your life with His joy this New Year.
