Don’t you know you are a god?

I have travelled to some countries by the grace of God to preach the gospel of Christ either by invitation or by personal decision to minister the word of God with power and anointing, and to the glory of God people are still testifying how God used me to touch their lives.

There is one thing I noticed in my journey for Christ, people worship different gods, deities, idols, ancient goddess or ancestral spirits knowingly or unknowingly. It bothers me so much and I decided to open the eyes of those who are still living in ignorance under the so called bondage of these gods.

The truth is, you are a god, why worship another god? Why fear them? Why think they have power over you? Why shivering like they have control over your future. You don’t even know they are afraid of you. When you have the knowledge of who you are and rise up against them they succumb to the power in you because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).

Lions give birth to lions, elephants give birth to elephants, everything gives birth to its kind, so is God. God created us as gods, meaning, God gave birth to gods.

Psalm 82:6 says, “I said, “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High” “.

God created us in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). That means we are like Him, a god. Unbelievers don’t know they have power than the gods they worship. Mention the name of Jesus Christ and you will see the ancient gods powerless and confused. No wonder God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13). You sacrifice, pay homage and worship these gods or goddesses because you lack knowledge and so perish. You can be of God and still perish because you lack knowledge.

You are a god. God made you a god. You have to speak as a god. Act as a god, prophesy as a god, take dominion as a god, live as a god, decree as a god, be fearless as a god, write, preach, blog, draw, work, walk, see, move, pray, talk, behave, love and do everything as a god. Assume your god status.

God has given birth to you as a god. He created you as a god. Even the devil knows you are a god.

Your situation is not the worst.

I know for sure I may not be in your condition to ascertain your plight. I know I might not be in the right position to understand what you are passing through. One thing I can boldly say is that your situation is not the worst because your best is yet to come.

Job 14:1 says, Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble”.

Job was in trouble when he wrote his story. He was facing a serious challenge that could take his life. The worst disease on earth came upon him, his children died within a second, his prosperity turned into poverty. A man that was the greatest of all the people suddenly became the beggar in town. He was rejected, abandoned, criticized, humiliated and uncared for. His condition was deplorable and pathetic. God was testing him while the devil was tempting him. If there is no test, there will be no testimony. No temptation, no exaltation.

I want to put it to you that anything that has made you suffer does not make you the worst person. Someone somewhere has suffered the same fate and turned it into a success story. When you are dealing with a critical situation in your life try to reframe, look at the situation from different angles. Don’t just look for the type that will support your ego; seek out perspectives from the Scripture and how you will overcome. Synthesize everything you know of your situation into a complete picture of what God can do at the moment.

You have to revise yourself to control the situation and not the situation controlling you. Stop complaining, stop discussing the situation to anyone you see, stop magnifying it as if God does not know what is happening, stop murmuring, stop being unnecessarily angry, stop thinking of suicide.

Whatever you are going through is just for a while it will fizzle out. Hang on, never quit, a new dawn is about to come.

1 Peter 5:10 says, “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen and settle you”.

In case you don’t know, God is about to settle your case. You are too anointed to be disappointed.

God is working out something just make sure you are not found wanting. Shalom.

Is your spouse cheating on you?

I have read countless of stories and experiences of people who are languishing in sorrow, pain, unforgiveness and hatred because their spouse cheated on them. The list is endless. In all these things I discovered something, the people who feel cheated don’t understand why they are cheated on and couldn’t find solution to the problem. They see it naturally and are blinded spiritually.
Now let me tell you why your spouse cheats on you.

* Your spouse cheats on you not because your spouse derives joy in doing it but because your spouse’s love has waxed cold (Matthew 24:12). The way your spouse sees you has diminished. The light of the love has dimmed completely.

* Your spouse cheats on you because your spouse is possessed by the spirit of sexual immorality. When such spirit possesses your spouse anybody is good for sex. Your spouse is controlled by lust like Samson (Judges 16:1).

* There is probability that your spouse is under a spell, charm or satanic influence. Someone can cast spell on your spouse to abandon you and go after them. You see your spouse as deliberately cheating on you but you never knew your spouse is influenced by powers beyond him.

* Your spouse cheated on you because you no longer satisfy your spouse sexually. Due to quarrels, job stress, lack of sexual urge towards your spouse can cause cheating. You give a lot of reasons why sex should wait for another time.

* Your spouse must have come from a family of cheats. The parents cheated on each other. The brothers and sisters cheated on their spouses. So, your spouse grew to emulate them thinking that cheating is fun.

* Your spouse cheated on you because there were strings of former relationships that were not properly disengaged. Your spouse still have affairs at your back even after marriage. Your spouse still prefer having sexual intimacies with them because your spouse’s mind is divided.

* Your spouse cheated on you because you no longer dress attractive. There is no longer sense of body check and communication. No intimacy and heart to heart talk. When your spouse tries to discuss sensitive matters you don’t tend to get it. Your spouse decides to get the fun outside.

* You always disrespect and disregard your spouse both in private and in public. You criticize your spouse in front of friends and family members. Before you know it, the secretary at the office becomes a companion and one thing will lead to another.

* Your spouse cheated on you because you left those things that kept the love alive, it faded away. No more gifts, surprises, spending holidays together, love words and mutual understanding. There was nothing interesting in the marriage anymore. Your spouse became tempted to look for satisfaction outside.

* Your spouse cheated on you because your marriage was not based on godly foundation. You people met in a night club or in all those ungodly parties, how do you think your spouse will not cheat on you? Your spouse believes you are equally cheating even when there is no evidence.

* You and your spouse are not spiritually inclined in God. Your spouse lacks the fear of God. You thought that over time your spouse will come over it but you were mistaken. You married your spouse out of sentiments.

* Your spouse cheated because there was no self control. Everyone is tempted by selfish desires but the ability not to fall into such temptation is by not dwelling on the thoughts for so long.

* Your spouse cheated on you because biologically your spouse has a high level of sexual hormones. It makes your spouse have sexual urge all the time and if not controlled makes your spouse cheat on you.

Your spouse is addicted to pornography and you cared less about it. Any time your spouse feels aroused by such negative visuals there is tendency to get satisfaction from outside. Pornography kills marriage.

I must say that these reasons I spoke about may be unlimited but no matter the reason there is no excuse to infidelity. When you cheat on your spouse your marriage is at risk.

The truth is that those who cheat are equally cheating themselves. Cheating affects both parties. When you cheat you attract demons to your marriage, why? A demon is behind every sexual promiscuity.

Probably you have cheated your spouse knowingly or unknowingly, it’s time to make amendments with God. Pray to God to give you the grace to be faithful in your marriage and in Him. God bless you.

God can ask you to marry a prostitute.

I have discovered over time that God can ask you to do anything. It will look so disgusting to do but His will and not your will must be done.

God can ask you to leave your father’s house, country or your loved ones for a reason just like he told Abraham and he obeyed (Genesis 12:1).

God can make you lose your job for you to get a better one. He can bring obstacles in your way to save your life. God can make you separate from your best friend just to make you focus. God can destroy the business you have laboured to build just to show you a business that you would do and have peace of mind. God can stop that breakthrough from coming so early just to draw you closer to Himself. God can even allow that medical issue to continue just to make you pray more. God doesn’t really derive joy from it but He sometimes uses it to bring us closer to Himself.

In 1 Samuel 1:5 says, ” …. although the Lord has closed her womb”.

God shut the womb of Hannah for an appointed time. At last she gave birth to prophet Samuel. That is why God is God. You cannot judge Him or question Him. He makes everything to work for our good (Romans 8:28).

That was exactly what God did when He asked prophet Hosea to marry a harlot. How can you describe that?

Hosea 1:2 says, “When the Lord began to speak by Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea: “Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry, for the land has committed great harlotry by departing from the Lord”.

God asked him to do it but not to humiliate him. God was using it as a symbolic nature of how Israel abandoned Him.

One thing you need to know is that you have to be sure God asked you to do it. If you do it out of ignorance or carnality you will have yourself to blame.

What has God asked you to do but you refused because you think you can’t just do it? Do you know God can frustrate you because you refused to obey Him, for example, He frustrated Jonah when he disobeyed to go to Nineveh.

God gave you freewill but He never told you your will is better His will. If you don’t obey the will of God get ready for the wheel of uncertainty.

I pray may God’s will prevail in your life. Amen.

Blood for blood.

Most times we think we can predict God, we think we know Him too well as if He is our biological father. The ways of God are mysterious and we cannot know Him all through.

God does not despise blood. In the Old testament a lot of blood sacrifices were offered to God to cleanse sins, forgive iniquities and turn away His wrath. It simply means the blood speaks, it has a voice and God takes action whenever the blood of a believer or unbeliever is shed.

When Cain killed Abel, the blood of Abel spoke against him and God took action against Cain.

Genesis 4:10 says, “…….. the voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me …..”

When God decided to kill the firstborn of the Egyptians, the children of Israel were told to sprinkle the blood of the lamb on their doorposts. When the angel of death came he passed over (Exodus 12:23). The blood was speaking.

Likewise the blood of Jesus speaks better things than the blood of Abel (Hebrews 12:24). The blood of Abel was speaking of vengeance but the blood of Jesus speaks of mercy.

2 Kings 3: 27 says, ” Then he took his eldest son who would have reigned in his place, and offered him as a burnt offering upon the wall; and there was great indignation against Israel. So they departed from him and returned to their own land”.

When God saw how the King of Moab sacrificed his firstborn son to his god in order to win the battle, God turned against the Israelites. The Moabites were not captured. Why? God saw him as an unbeliever who understood blood sacrifice, to the extent of sacrificing his heir apparent.

God also sacrificed His Son and Heir and His blood was shed for our sins. God saw a connection between Him and the king of Moab irrespective of the fact that what he did was evil. It was blood for blood and God backed out.

That was why Jesus told his disciples in (Luke 22:20) to always drink his blood and eat His flesh which is the Holy Communion. Jesus was teaching them the efficacy of His blood. Which blood is speaking for you?

What I am saying is that the children of this world are becoming wiser than children of the kingdom. They understand and obey kingdom principles and prosper but the believers are less concerned.

What have you sacrificed for God to hear your prayer, lift you up, bless you or heal you. The truth is that everything cannot be achieved by prayer. There are blessings we can only attract by sacrifice. Sacrifice your time, energy, time, money or substance to the things of God or else no sacrifice will speak for you when the battle comes.

Every price has a sacrifice. Don’t forget that.

Lions don’t eat lions.

In the jungle a lion can’t eat a lion no matter what. Lions are carnivorous in nature and can eat other animals as food yet cannot eat another lion.

That was exactly what happened to Daniel. He found himself in the jungle of lions. The governors, administrators, counsellors and advisors in Babylon conspired against him (Daniel 6:4).

At the end Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den. Daniel 6:22 says,

“My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you”.

The greatest mistake the enemies of Daniel made was that they never knew he was a lion. I will prove that to you.

* Daniel is from Judah and the people from Judah are lion killers. David killed lions (1 Samuel 17:36). Samson killed lions (Judges 14:6). People from Judah don’t fear lions. They are as bold as a lion.

* When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, the lions saw him as a lion like themselves. Irrespective of the fact that angels appeared but revelational knowledge tells me the lions saw him as one of their own, so he was no food to them.

* His enemies forgot he serves the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5), who is Jesus Christ. The Scriptures say that the the devil is like a roaring lion, meaning, the devil acts like a lion but not a lion. Daniel’s enemies roared like a lion but they were devoured (Daniel 6:24).

* Daniel was as bold as a lion when they plotted to kill him. Proverbs 28:1 says, “the wicked flees when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.

* Jacob the father of Judah pronounced and blessed Judah as a lion. Genesis 49:9, “Judah is a lion’s whelp ; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him”.

The same blessing followed Daniel because he was from the lineage of Judah.

You are a lion. You have to act, move, behave, think and do things like a lion. What is putting fear in you? What is troubling your life? What is threatening your existence? Who is an obstacle to your destiny? You have to confront the enemy. Be fearless. Be bold. Be strong. Be focused. Become spiritual. You own the jungle. The lion doesn’t run from the enemy, the enemy runs from the lion. You cannot allow the hurricane, recession, economic meltdown, sack letter, barrenness or what you see demoralize you.

This world is a jungle and if you must survive you have to be a lion. Lions control their territory. Control your spiritual territory and take dominion.

The power of a man.

The man in most cases is the head of most positions on earth. At least he is the head of the family and other privileged positions.

The power of a man is not to use his position to bully those who are not privileged like him, intimidate others, sexually harassing the junior staff of his company and if they don’t yield to his selfish desires they get fired.

The power of a man is not to take advantage of the feminine gender, involving in domestic violence, telling his spouse to do as as he says without mutual agreement, imposing his autocratic influence wherever he finds himself, in ministry, politics, organisation, company etc, No. You are not a man by showing off or by power tussle.

The power of a man is the ability to take responsibility in both good and bad times like Moses did by pleading for mercy on behalf of the Israelites (Numbers 21:7).

The power of a man is to love his wife even in her mistakes or shortcomings and adore her when necessary especially when it is beyond their control like Joseph loved Mary and never exposed her divine pregnancy or dissolve their marriage (Matthew 1:19).

The power of a man is to use his headship and make discipleship of good leadership for the next generation like Jesus did when He chose His disciples, trained and imparted them to continue the work (Luke 9:1).

The power of a man is to stand against anything that defiles or degrades humanity both in your state or country like David stood for Israel when Goliath defiled the army of Israel (1 Samuel 17:45).

The power of a man is resisting sexual immorality or temptation no matter the circumstance like Joseph did when Potiphar’s wife made advances (Genesis 39:11-12).

The power of a man is to stand by his family, friends, nation in times of need and sober reflection as Abraham stood for his nephew Lot when God was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:29).

The power of a man is not to allow his weakness to make him senseless but to turn them into his strength as Gideon as a rejected son of a harlot came at last to become accepted to be a leader (Judges 6:15).

The power of a man lies in showing a good example in bad times, among unbelievers or crisis like Daniel refused to worship king Darius’ statue even when a death sentence was pronounced (Daniel 6:6 – 7).

The power of a man is the ability to sacrifice his time, energy and resources for the good of others and for the work of God as Paul sacrificed while in chains to propagate the gospel without reservations (Philippians 1:12 – 18).

Every man has the power to change his destiny, change lives, change his world but must first be of change to himself before he could change others. That is when he becomes unlimited.
