Fasting & Prayer

Introduction: In the Old Testament, there were some very prayerful men, e.g. Moses, David, Daniel, Nehemiah, Elijah. However, the majority of Old Testament saints only prayed during special occasions when they gathered together and were led in prayer by men of God. During Jesus' time on earth, He was very prayerful (Luke 6:12). Though His disciples asked Him to teach them to pray (Luke 11:1), they were not prayerful at all. On the night before He was crucified, Jesus said to His disciples "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name" (John 16:24). These men were not prayerful because they did not have the same promises regarding prayer as we have.

Petitions: On the night before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples to pray: "ask the Father in my name…ask, and ye shall receive…At that day ye shall ask in my name" (John 16:23-27). The very essence of prayer is asking. Jesus did not tell His disciples that they needed to deserve it, or they needed to earn the right to pray, or they needed to be eloquent in prayer. He simply told them to ask.

Asking is the simplest thing to do. It is about the first thing we learn to do. Nobody can say "I'm so weak that I don't know how to ask." The weaker we are, the better we are at asking. It is only when we become too clever or too proud that we do not know how to ask. We need not fear our lack of eloquence because we are not approaching an English teacher. Neither need we fear that we are not intelligent enough to remember all that we are to ask because we are not approaching a scholar. Help is given to the needy, not to those who are too able.

The whole of a Christian's life should be one of asking (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Nothing is too small to ask from the God who created tiny atoms, or too big to ask from the God who created the universe. We must not postpone prayer till we feel more worthy to do so because we will never be worthy enough to ask from God. We ask, not because we are worthy but because Jesus has invited us to ask and ask and ask.

Privileges: Jesus told His disciples "At that day ye shall ask" (John 16:26). He was referring to the day that he Holy Spirit would give them the assurance that they were indeed the children of God (John 16:13, Romans 8:16) and therefore have the confidence to pray. Without the Spirit's assurance, we will have little confidence that our prayers will be heard. One of the earliest signs of genuine salvation is the confidence that our prayers are heard. This results in a greater desire to pray (e.g. Acts 9:11). Though all Christians have a desire to pray, just as all people have a desire to eat; this desire must be increased through more understanding of the need of prayer and encouragement from brethren. The Holy Spirit not only gives us the desire to pray but also teaches us how to pray in God's will (Romans 8:26). The reason why many Christians' prayers are not answered because they are praying out of God's will - either through ignorance or rebellion.

Jesus, on the night before He was crucified, told His disciples "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name" (John 16:24). When Jesus was with His disciples, He prayed for their needs. But as He was about to leave them, He tells them that from now on they will have to pray. They were to pray in His name, i.e. in His stead, in His place, in His "shoes." They were to be His representatives, His ambassadors on earth. Therefore, God the Father would answer their prayers that were prayed in Jesus' name as if He were answering Jesus' prayers. If God the Father never refused Jesus' prayers (John 11:41, 42), He would also never refuse their prayers. Furthermore, Jesus was returning to the Father (John 16:28) to be their "advocate with the Father" (1 John 2:1). This assured them that Jesus their Advocate would perfect their feeble sin-stained prayers before presenting them to the Father.

Though Jesus was their Advocate with the Father, He told them "I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you" (John 16:26) because He did not want to give His disciples the impression that God the Father was unwilling to hear their prayers. Many people have the impression that without Jesus' atonement at Calvary, God does not love us. They forget that before Jesus' atonement, "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son" (John 3:16). Before we were saved, God loved us with a love of compassion and pity. After we are saved, He loves us with a love of complacency and delight. It is similar to a man adopting a poor baby out of pity, and then loving the same child more and more as he grows more and more like his adopted father. It is hard to imagine how the perfect and infinite God can love sinful, tiny beings like us, but Jesus tells us that "the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God" (John 16:27). God loves us because we love who He loves, namely, Jesus Christ. We must not forget that when Jesus said these words He knew how weak His disciples' love for Him was and that soon they would deny and forsake Him.

Power: We are privileged to have the Spirit who prompts and teaches us to pray, Jesus Christ who mediates for us, and the Father who loves us. Therefore, we should pray and expect great things, unlike most of the Old Testament saints who could only hope that their prayers were heard. Let us use our privileged position to ask freely and boldly. A Christian is only as strong as his prayer life (1 Corinthians 3:7). So is a church. Formal prayers that expect little or nothing from God will receive little or nothing from God (Hebrews 11:6). Hell is also filled with prayers for deliverance that are never answered.

Conclusion: "Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full" (John 16:24).

the meaning of christmas

God in a Manger
Christmas is not about the Savior's infancy; it is about His deity. The humble birth of Jesus Christ was never intended to conceal the reality that God was being born into the world.
But the modern world's version of Christmas does just that. And consequently for the greater part of humanity, Christmas has no legitimate meaning at all.
I don't suppose anyone can ever fathom what it means for God to be born in a manger. How does one explain the Almighty stooping to become a tiny infant? Our minds cannot begin to understand what was involved in God's becoming man.
Nor can anyone explain how God could become a baby. Yet He did. Without forsaking His divine nature or diminishing His deity, He was born into our world as a tiny infant.
He was fully human, with all the needs and emotions that are common to us all. Yet He was also fully God--all wise and all powerful.
For nearly 2,000 years, debate has been raging about who Jesus really is. Cults and skeptics have offered various explanations. They'll say He is one of many gods, a created being, a high angel, a good teacher, a prophet, and so on. The common thread of all such theories is that they make Jesus less than God. But the biblical evidence is overwhelming that this child in the manger was the incarnation of God.
One passage in particular, written by the apostle Paul, captures the essence of Jesus' divine nature and underscores the truths that make Christmas truly wonderful.
Colossians 1:15-20 says,
He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation. For. . . all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

A Ghostly Illusion?

Paul was writing to the Christians at Colossae. The city was under the influence of what came to be known as gnosticism. Its adherents fancied themselves the only ones who had access to the truth, which they believed was so complex that common people couldn't know it. Among other things, they taught philosophical dualism--the idea that matter is evil and spirit is good. They believed that because God is spirit, He is good, but He could never touch matter, which is evil.
Therefore they also concluded that God couldn't be the creator of the physical universe, because if God made matter, He would be responsible for evil. And they taught that God could never become a man, because as a man He would have to dwell in a body made of evil matter.
Those pre-gnostics explained away the incarnation by saying that Jesus was a good angel whose body was only an illusion. That teaching and others like it pervaded the early church; many of the New Testament epistles specifically refute pre-gnostic ideas. In fact, the apostle John attacked the foundation of gnostic teaching when he wrote "By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God" (1 John 4:2).
The apostle Paul refuted that same heresy when he wrote, "By Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created by Him and for Him" (1:16). He specifically affirmed that Jesus is God in the flesh--the Creator of everything.

Like Father, Like Son

Ironically, some of the cults that deny Jesus' deity try to use Colossians 1:15 20 to support their view. They suggest, for example, that the phrase "the image of the invisible God" (v. 15) hints that Jesus was merely a created being who bore the image of God in the same sense as all humanity. But the truth is though we were created in God's likeness, we only resemble Him. Jesus, on the other hand, is God's exact image.
The Greek word translated "image" means a perfect replica, a precise copy, a duplicate. Paul was saying that God Himself is fully manifest in the Person of His Son, who is none other than Jesus Christ. He is the exact image of God. Jesus Himself said, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9).
Hebrews 1 parallels Colossians 1:15-20 at a number of key points. Regarding the statement that Christ is the image of God, for example, Hebrews 1:3 makes an identical affirmation: "He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature." Christ is to God as the warm brilliance of light is to the sun. He brings God from a cosmic location to the very hearts of men and women. He gives light and life. He reveals God's very essence. They cannot be divided, and neither has ever existed without the other--they are one (John 10:30).
Scripture repeatedly says that God is invisible (John 1:18; 5:37; 1 Timothy 1:17; and Colossians 1:15). But through Christ the invisible God has been made visible. God's full likeness is revealed in Him. Colossians 1:19 takes the truth a step further: "It was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him." He is not just an outline of God; He is fully God. Colossians 2:9 is even more explicit: "In Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form." Nothing is lacking. No attribute is absent. He is God in the fullest possible sense, the perfect image.

The Rightful Heir

In Colossians 1:15 Paul says Jesus is "the first born of all creation." Those who reject the deity of Christ have made much of that phrase, assuming it means Jesus was a created being. But the word translated "first born" describes Jesus' rank, not His origin. The first-born in a Hebrew family was the heir, the ranking one, the one who had the right of inheritance. And in a royal family, he had the right to rule.
So Christ is the One who inherits all creation and the right to rule over it. It doesn't mean He was born first in order, for He wasn't.
In Psalm 89:27 God says of David, "I also shall make him My first born, the highest of the kings of the earth." There the meaning of "first born" is given in plain language: "the highest of the kings of the earth." That's what first-born means--Christ is "King of kings and Lord of lords" (Revelation 17:16).
Hebrews 1 again has a parallel statement. Verse two says God has appointed His Son "heir of all things." He is the primary One, the Son who has the right to the inheritance, the ranking Person, the Lord of all, heir of all creation.

Creator and King

The claim that "first born" means Christ is a created being completely ignores the context of Colossians 1:15. Remember, you've already seen verses 16 17 explicitly name Him as Creator of everything. Christ is not part of creation; He is the Creator, the very arm of God, active from the beginning in calling the universe and all creatures into existence. John 1:3 says, "All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being." That could not be true if He were Himself a created being.
Hebrews 1:2 also identifies Christ as the Creator. Christ was the Person of the Trinity through whom the world was made and for whom it was fashioned.
The size of the universe is incomprehensible.
Who made all that? Some scientists say there was this big explosion that eventually formed a primordial swamp, and ... Science cannot explain it. God created it all.
Who?
The babe in Bethlehem. He made everything.

INVITATION TO WATCH NIGHT SERVICE


POWER TO CROSS OVER
The end of the year is a most interesting time in the lives of most people. It is a time for reflection on the year that is ending and most importanly a time for projection into the year ahead. people often have a list of New year Resolutions which emcompass plans. useful as this are, they sometimes end up being unfulfilled . JOIN ME AND THE TURNING POINT FAMILY IN THIS POWER TO CROSS OVER CONFERENCE AS I TEACH YOU HOW TO PURSUE YOUR NEW YEAR DREAMS. SHALOM! REV. CHRIS GABA

DELIVERANCE FROM UNPROFITABLE LIFE




DELIVERANCE FROM UNPROFITABLE LIFE
Before we commence, let us look at the following prophetic declarations. As you read them, I want you to believe them because if you believe it, God will move in your life mightily and things will change for the best in your life:

1. I strongly prophesy! The God of deliverance will demonstrate His power in your life this week
2. Mark my word; before the 17th of October, your hands will count a lot of money
3. I prophesy! Every bewitchment on your head has been destroyed
4. I prophesy! Every tree of witches and wizards in your life has been cut down
5. Rejoice! Because every unprofitable curse in your life has been broken.

This message is in a prophetic voice. God is about to do a might thing in your life. In 1923, six men were the most powerful financiers in the world but the lives of these men became unprofitable. Two of them committed suicide. One became insane. One died accidentally. One died penniless and another died as a fugitive. These six men failed to pray for deliverance from unprofitable life. If you do not pray, your life will become unprofitable. It is not the measure of your struggles that brings profitability. They only Person who blesses is the Almighty God Many are travelling on a route that is not profitable. Isaiah 48:17 says “Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.”

I have discovered that a lot have entered into a career that will not profit them. I have discovered that a lot of Christians need deliverance from unprofitable work. A lot of Christians are doing things that will not profit them. It is only Jesus who can lead you to do what will profit you. That is why if you are a Christian and you are not serious with Christ, you are a joker. The only Person who can direct you to do what is profitable is Jesus Christ.

Your certificate cannot bring profitability. A lot of people possess the kind of certificate you have so the competition around you is too much to guarantee you automatic profitability. A lot have PhD certificates but they are suffering. The only Person who can direct you to a profitable life is Jesus Christ. It is so sad that a lot of Christians do not know how to worship and move with God.

In Luke 5, the Bible says Peter was a professional fisherman. I believe his father was also a fisherman. One particular day, when he went fishing, he did a lot but he caught nothing. After working profitless all day, they came ashore and began washing their net. Then Jesus went to him.

The reasons why Jesus beckoned to Peter were:

1. Fishing is not the job assigned to Peter from Above
2. God had arranged a wonderful job for Peter. If he had not resigned as a fisherman, there would be no I Peter and II Peter in the Bible. Assuming Peter died as a fisherman,
nobody would have heard about him! I pray for you, the way Jesus helped Peter that you will get your genuine job!

Luke 5

5:1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

5:2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

5:3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

that particular hour was not for fishing. However, we notice from the scripture that it was a professional ethic to fish in the night because one was assured of a better quantity of catch. Peter was a professional and he was using the most cherished ethics in the industry.

5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Peter was implying that ‘I am a professional fisherman but because I have seen something in you.’ Then Peter cast his net as Jesus directed him. He caught many fishes and the net broke. He bowed before Jesus and said ‘Master, go away I am a sinner. I am not worthy to stand before you.’ From that day, Jesus told Peter he will not be catching ordinary fishes but he would be fisher of men.

From that simple moment, the occupation, location and association of Peter changed. From the moment, you get the deliverance, you will be like this. There are several factors that bring unprofitable lifestyles. That is why I gave the example of six men. At a point they had pooled money more than the treasury of America but they died with no money. There are seven factors we will look at:

1. Failure to repair your foundation: the foundations of a lot of people are not good. If you meet a good architect, he will tell you that the foundation of every building is very important. You can build a very wonderful skyscraper but if the foundation is bad, it will collapse. It is the same in the spirit realms. A lot of people believe that things in the physical will determine things in the spiritual bit it is not so. Rather, things in the spiritual determine things in the physical. The physical is just a shadow of what goes on in the spirit realms. You need to repair your standings and foundations in the spirit realms. These 6 men failed to repair their foundations. Jesus can repair foundations. Remember Jesus said he will die and on the third day, he will rise. No leader or religious founder said this. The purpose is to pave the way for you. Jesus went under the earth and took certain things belonging to you from the enemy. He resurrected and went to Heaven with a promise that He will be with his disciples forever. That simple thing Jesus did connote that He is the only one who can save you. There are some of us, our own mothers went to certain places before they conceived us. They made certain vows to return you to the shrine but they failed. In such a case, you can never prosper. You need to break the covenant. If you fail to repair your foundations, everywhere you go, you will be limited. For some people, in their homes they worship idols and pour libations. If you
are from such a home, you need to repair your foundations. David said in Psalm 11:3 that if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? If you know you come from a place where there is idol worship and no good thing happens there, you need to pray at the end of this message. Even if you have money, you need to repair your foundations. Remember the six men. They were richer than America but because they failed to repair their foundations, they lost everything they had!
2. Transferred Oppression: Some people are passing through pain and difficulty in life now and they do not know why. Perhaps it is because of the mistake of your father, mother or ancestors. Those people are dead but the oppression they brought is transferred to the living. I want to advice you. If you are a parent, listen, life is a mystery. I want to tell you that if you are doing good, continue to do good. This is because your children and grandchildren will live to enjoy the benefits of it forever. If you are doing evil, repent for you children and their children will forever suffer the consequences. There are some things some people are doing now that if they do not stop, their children will suffer. There are some parents who have killed and taken people’s properties. They shower them money they get from these diabolic ventures on their children. I want you to know that those children will live to suffer the consequences. Some people turn and they have obstacles to the right and to the left. They fast and pray and do all kinds of things but nothing happens. They are suffering from transferred oppression. That is why I advice people not to go into ministry if they are not called. If you go into ministry and you misuse offerings and tithes, everything will rest on your children. Be honest in your career. A lot can do a lot of things in their career. They majority of people in Africa suffer not because of their problems but because of ancestral bondage. Some of our ancestors entered into covenants with strange powers and idols forever. The said they will serve the idols with their descendants till the end of time and if they ever fail, the idols should punish them. Imagine a woman who came to me. She said in her family house, there is a big snake. There was someone they had employed to be feeding this snake with a fowl every day. Whenever the snake raised its head throughout the day, but the evening time, someone in the family would die. In a family they worshipped a big tortoise. A woman of 120 years was called and asked how the tortoise came into the family she said one of her ancestors about five generations away brought it into the family. If you are from such a family, you need to pray very well otherwise money you get will vanish into thin air. Circumstances will always change in your life. Some people have handled huge sums of money in life but now, they have nothings. This world is full of mysteries. There is no time you can say now I have arrived. The only One who can say He is there is God. That his why He said I AM. You cannot say I am. That is why you need to pray. Some people brag around but it is because they don’t know the mystery of life. There is a Yoruba proverb that says ‘the mark this world carries is enormous.’ I pray now, every transferred oppression in your life, I command it to die!
3. Disobedience: This started from the Garden of Eden.
Who on earth can compare himself to Adam? Nobody can be compared to Adam. Everything on earth was named by him. E was a co-creator. Do you know what is called Eden? It is not heaven but it is a real palace. It is a realm where you get and everything around you is wealth. Eden is on earth! Everything you use on earth is from Eden. The only man who lived there with his wife was Adam. Every good thing you can see is from Eden. It is a place of wealth. Eden is the place Adam and Eve lived until one day they disobeyed God. Listen, a lot of us love to disobey God. Some of us obey men more than God. God said about Job, ‘Devil, have you tried my servant Job?’ God never boasted of Adam. By you know that when Eve ate the fruit, and she gave it to Adam, he could have told her that it was a bad thing and gone to God to apologize. They might have been forgiven. Instead, he began to apportion blame. There is a Yoruba adage that says ‘when plouging the ground, you plough it to yourself.’ Disobedience is a very huge and powerful sin. When Adam disobeyed God, He drove him out. For Job, Satan went God and told Him that he has been moving to and fro on earth. And God asked him if he has considered His servant Job. In other words, God was boasting in Job. Then Satan said Job was moving on because God had made a hedge around Job. God removed the hedge and Satan touched him. Job became sick and his wife went to him and said ‘you foolish man why don’t you curse God and die!’ But because Job did not want to disobey God, he went through it and at the end he was restored. Disobedience is a strong sin. Te day you disobey God, unprofitable spirit will chase you forever.
4. Sin: Nowadays, sin is everywhere. Some people are in the church only to get girlfriends. They are just ‘enjoying’ themselves in sin. Most of the things you call ‘enjoyment’ is gross bitterness. The Yorubas will say ‘when the consequences come, you bear it alone.’ God says in Isaiah that the hand of the Lord is not too short to save neither is his ears too hard on hearing but our iniquities have hindered us from the Lord. Your sin is now iniquity. Iniquity is sin you commit and you know it is sin but you don’t care anymore. Some take pleasure in lying, fornicating, stealing, killing. Some are professional liars. There are some Christians when you see them doing certain things, you marvel. The biggest sin you can commit is to deceive yourself. If you lie to yourself, it means you hate yourself. If your profitability is like a huge odum or oak tree, sin is capable of cutting it down. I pray for you, God will deliver you from sin!
5. Lack of focus: Every great man, every extraordinary man or woman started from a point somewhere. Gradually, they added to it. A lot cannot focus on one business for one year. When they see one profitable venture, they want to quit what they are doing and enter. In one year, some people can enter into eight different businesses. They cannot focus for one year. That is why people go to church and the first thing they ask for is welfare fund. Over here, we teach people to fish. We don’t give people fish. When I began this ministry, we were 2 ½ members; two dedicated members and one undecided member. They mocked us but we persisted. Now those who mocked us come to me and ask me to pray for them. The Bible says ‘my Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand until I make your
enemies your footstool. If we had not focused, we wouldn’t be where we are now. Many people look at people’s watches to check their time. I never look at another person’s watch for my time. Focus on whatever you are doing! For every journey you must take starts with a step. The people at the top started from a first step and moved gradually to the top. Do not run on the steps otherwise you will fall and get a fracture. I will admonish you to get a copy of my book titled ‘Focus’. It is available from our bookshop. An ancient king decided to honour someone who would pass a test. The test was to carry water on a spoon from the outskirts of the city to the city center amidst dancing and praise. The first person came and he listened to the praise and he poured the water away. Other people came and failed because of the drumming and singing. Then one man came and he managed to carry the water to the city center successfully. When interviewed after the race, he said he focused on the spoon and water and shunned the praise until he got to the finish line. He focused. I have never seen a footballer watching spectators before. If you are successful and you win, you get the trophy but if you lose, you only get a handshake for participating.
6. Serious Attacks from the wicked: In Psalm 11:2 it says “For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.” Let me tell you, there are wicked people on earth. Any Gospel preached to the wicked will not change them. David said there is no salvation for the wicked. Adopt the philosophy of Pure Fire, “before the wicked destroys me, I will destroy them first!” the wicked are wicked. There is no mercy in their vocabulary. The wicked will not sleep until they commit mischief. They drink the wine of wickedness so that they will be filled with stupor and when they see you, they forget about their affiliation to you. They have destroyed a lot of profits. As from today, the wicked must die!
7. Personal Mistake: These are mistakes from you. Try to discipline yourself. It is not everywhere you must go. It is not every time you must show off. You have to pray so that you get into subjection. Mistake is a groundwork for miracles but very difficult to repair. A mistake from Moses made him spend 40 years in the wilderness. There is a difference between a sore and a scar. A sore is painful but it heals. A scar does not bring pain but it leaves a mark. In whatever you do, pause to think first. Certain mistakes can cause you your life, family or empire. That is why Jesus Christ said watch and pray. The Lord is going to release deliverance this day and your life will be changed. I want you to focus on personal mistake. It is your personal mistake. If you know you cannot bear it again, go to somebody. We all make mistakes. You must try your best to conquer them. Once you are able to conquer them, you can move on in life. I pray for you as you are travelling on the journey of life, every unprofitable thing before you will become profitable. Are you ready to pray?

THE WICKED MUST DIE

THE WICKED MUST DIE

Mark 10:27 says with men it may seem impossible but not with God! But not with God! But not with God! For with God, ALL things are possible; not it is not a few things or some types of things but ALL THINGS! If you believe the following declarations I am going to pronounce on you, they will be your lot in this last week of the year 2006 to act as a stage to propel you to the top.

I strongly prophesy! The wicked has failed completely in your life.
The counsel of the wicked that you will not see next year has been cancelled.
I prophesy! The wicked behind your woes is dead in the name of Jesus.
I strongly prophesy! The Lord has opened the gate of blessings for you to shine again.
Rejoice! For any moment from now, your jet of blessings will land.

For somebody reading my message for the first time, he or she may ask why is this man preaching for the wicked to die? Why doesn’t he pray for the wicked to change instead? I want you to know that we have tried that for many years but the Bible says in Proverbs 4:16-17 that

4:16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.4:17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.A lot fail to deal with the wicked. I want to submit to you that you will find things difficult in the coming year unless you deal with the wicked. You may have goals for the coming year but there are some people who are ready to pull you down. David said in Psalm 62:3-4 that:

62:3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.62:4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.Inwardly they curse you each day and night even though outwardly they look like your friends and helpers! Some people travel from shrine to shrine making enquiries about how you will make it in the near future so that they can bring you down but the wicked must die. Proverbs 2:22 says “But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.”

if you are the type praying for your detractors to change, you are wasting your time. Until you pray some powers out of your life, you cannot make it in this life. The wicked have noting to contribute to you, your family, the society and the nation! Imagine how they have destroyed your goal. People mock you because they think you are lazy or stupid but it is all the work of the wicked!

In 1986, I went to pray somewhere. A man was building and as we were going, he showed me a beautiful house. The owner was in America and he sent money to his elder brother here in Africa and he built the house. When he finished the house he was in the US preparing for a house-warming ceremony to commission the house. He went shopping the day before his departure to Africa and he died in a tragic accident. Instead of commissioning the house, his corpse was flown down to Nigeria!

Isaiah 3:11 says “Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.” May you not encounter the attack of the wicked! Some of us grew in the atmosphere where there were so many witches and wizards. In the flat I grew, there were 24 flats and in each flat there was a witch in there so all in all, there were 24 witches! They turned men with Masters Degrees from Britain into armed robbers! Whoever is behind your woes will die.
Psalm 11:6 says “Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.”

Psalm 9:5 also says “Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.” Every day the wicked are being judged! Every day! Every day! I want to submit to you that a lot have allowed the wicked to undermine them. You need to take the next seven days to pray more against the wicked! You need to pray some things out of your life! I am going to pray for you so that the wicked behind your woes will die. All you need to do is to support me with your prayers!

Isaiah 8:18 says “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth” Except if you doubt, because God has sent me as one of the prophets to change your life. Maybe you don’t know the efficacy of signs and wonders but with signs and wonders, where they don’t want you, they have no option but to accept you. Where there is a limit, the sky is a limit for you. But until you deal with the wicked, you cannot get signs and wonders! Until you deal with the wicked, there will be no signs and wonders in your life.

Matthew 11:12 says “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” What was Jesus saying? Herodias killed his brother and took his wife. He arrested John-the-Baptist and put him in prison. John should have prayed for something to happen in the prison with violent prayers, not with physical force but with violent prayers.

So Jesus was lamenting on what was going to happen in Matthew 11:12 but John-the-Baptist failed to get violent in the spiritual realms.
During one occasion, the daughter of Herodias’ wife danced and Herodias promised her one thing. That is the efficacy of praise; that is what praise can do. The young girl went to his mother who said she should ask for the head of John-the-Baptist. What does it mean, in the spirit, they can cut off the head of your success. They can cut off the head of your future.

We are not in the era of cold Christianity. We are in the era of radical Christianity. That is why Jesus said be wise as a serpent but be as harmless as a dove.

Psalm 11:2 says “For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.” The wicked will not fire arrow against a mad man or a poor man but a young woman driving a flashy car or a young man controlling a lot of businesses! But your own philosophy is ‘before they kill you, you kill them. Your enemies will die!

In conclusion, it is so sad a lot have allowed the enemy to destroy things in their lives. How can a PhD holder become a beggar? How can you go to a place where they formerly celebrated you and now they will just be tolerating you? It is the work of the wicked!

II Timothy 2:4 says “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” You are at the warfront and you are still drinking. You are at the warfront and you are still looking for women? The coming year is your year but you need to clear the wicked who will block you first! The time has come for you to fight. After prayers, start to think of what you want from God and it will be your lot in the coming year!
II Peter 1:19-21 says
1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
No prophecy of the scriptures is vain as those who prophesied were moved by the Holy Ghost. If the Holy Ghost could move Peter, Mark, Paul, Matthew and the other Apostles and they prophesied, that same Holy Ghost can move me to prophesy on your life in the coming year! Mind you, deal with the wicked first.
The greatest way to experience peace is to fight, not physical war but spiritual warfare. No military man jokes with trespassers. The only way to score is to attack. If you only defend, they will score you. Are you ready to pray?

DONT WORRY

DONT WORRY
Before commencement, cry onto God like this;
  1. Oh Lord! I need my automatic promotion now
  2. Oh Lord! I need peace in my life by Fire
I have realised that in these last days many Christians have made worry a habit. I want you to understand that worry is dangerous. I want you to understand that worry is harmful. It cannot add anything to your life. Worry can only shorten your life. It will not add happiness but rather, sadness. That is why the Word of God is coming to tell you not to worry.
Don’t worry! A lot of us worry about your mistakes. A lot of us worry about our past. Some of us even worry about the future. I see God doing something today! Let us consider the mystery from the Master, Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:25-34
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Consider the Word of Jesus Christ. I can see a lot of things have caused you to be worried but God will step into your life today.
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Any area you are lacking in, God will provide for you. I am here to expose many things to you. Now look at verse 33.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Jesus was using this means to talk to you and I. Don’t worry about the future, don’t worry about the past. You cannot rewind to yesterday. Yesterday is gone forever so do not worry about it!
Look at the word of our Master. He said do not worry about tomorrow. Worry can cause a lot of harm to you. Worry can make you develop a brain tumour. Worry can make you get brain cancer. A lot of people have died because of worry.
Worry brings stress. You will be under immense emotional strain and you will be suppressed. As a result of that, your activities would come to a halt just because of worry.
Worry brings anxiety. It makes you feel that people are chasing you to harm you whereas you are totally safe and there is no danger in sight. Worry can make you develop insomnia. You will have sleepless nights and it brings you to a point where your life will be totally disorganised.
Worry can make you a drug addict. Many of the mad people on the streets got into their present situation by worrying about unnecessary things. Worry can make you addicted to alcohol. Worry makes a lot of people drink including some Born Again Christians. If you ask them, they will say I worry about one thing or the other and when I take two sips of alcohol it knocks me off and I can forget about the problem.
Worry can make you grow old. You will be very young yet when you tell people your age, they would not believe you because you worry too much and as a result you lose the looks of people of your age brackets. Listen to the words of Jesus Christ. It is ancient wisdom and it has withstood over the ages!
Worry has destroyed a lot of things in our lives. A lot of us worry about our finances. The only way is to get something doing and God will bless you. You do not have a problem! The Maker of Heaven and earth has promised to bless you when you start something so you do not have to worry!
Let us look at what David says in Psalm 1
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
The best way to stay away from worry is to get closer to the Word of God. You cannot solve your problem by worrying. It is only the Word of God that can knock off your problems!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
You need to let your delight be in the Word of God. At times when you are knocked down by problems, you feel like going to the pool to swim or visit people. It cannot help much, but adherence to the Word of God all the time can release you from that problem. Just get closer to God by knowing His Word.
Satan will always do his worst but God will do good things to you. The worst the devil can do is to send someone to steal something you value to make you worried. Satan is very jealous. God is a Jealous God but when He blesses you, satan also becomes very envious. If you are in financial crises, just get something doing and always meditate on the Word of God and your worries would be eliminated entirely.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
In other words, that man or woman must get something doing. If you do not do anything, you cannot prosper. In Europe and America, some people wash coins for a living. In Africa, people in such a class would just sit back idle and worry! Get something doing! Some people worry about the school fees of their children. When their children come home for vacation, they forget to plan for the next term’s school fees so three weeks to reopening, they begin to spend time worrying! Good preparation brings good presentation. Worry sends a lot of people to the grave. Say to yourself “I will not worry again!”
A lot of people find it difficult to flow in the things of God because they are worrying. A lot of young ladies come and they are so moody. They tell you that they have prayed and yet they are not getting husbands. When you pray with them and they get husbands, they come to you after the wedding and tell you ‘Pastor I cannot conceive.’
A woman came to me and told me she cannot conceive. I asked her how long she had been married she said she had been married for 12 months and because of that she was worried. Then I asked myself, what about those who have been married for 18 years without children. We feel our worries are the biggest in the world but when we hear of the problems of others, we see that ours is just minute.
A Pastor scheduled an appointment with me and when we met he began; “Pastor how do you see this world? I have been into Ministry for a long time and recently we tried to buy musical instruments. The members of the church pledged and they failed to redeem their pledges. I am tired of working as a Pastor!” Then I asked him the amount he needed and he said it was something around US$800. I smiled and shook my head and I began to tell him about the situation of this church. We had a bill of US$40,000 to settle. We were to buy an electricity transformer to ensure a stable power supply, I had told the congregation about it and they had contributed what they could and I could not go back. I had another cost of constructing many things on this compound and do so many construction works in this commission. That will cost a total of US$1 million. Then the Pastor looked at me and said “I thought you could buy an organ for us but it appears your commission is in a more serious financial situation than ours!” but you see, I was not worried in anyway because I knew the promises of God for me!
At times you feel you are the only one with problems. Can you imagine that because of single insult, someone has been thinking for 6 months now? Some husbands worry about their wives and some wives worry about their husbands. These things they worry about are simple things they could reason together and conclude but they choose to worry. That is why God said come and let us reason together. You were created to fellowship with God and in the same way you have to fellowship and live in understanding with your fellow human beings! Why do you worry? Say to yourself; “I will never worry!”
I saw an inscription on a car many years ago that I fell in love with. The inscription said WHY WORRY? IF YOU WORRY YOU WILL DIE, IF YOU DON’T WORRY YOU WILL DIE! The plan of God for your life will surely come to pass as long as you live within the will of God. If you fail to do what He has planned for you in your homeland, you will do it elsewhere. Look at the life of Joseph; his brothers prevented him from being what God had designed for him to be in his homeland but they eventually bowed to him in a foreign land; which of the two do you think is better of Joseph? So just stay in the will of God and you will not have to worry.

The problem of certain Christians is nothing to worry about. People call me and they tell me; ‘my stomach’, ‘my head, it is aching.’ Do you know that if you are a woman and you marry, you may not conceive in the first one year because your genotype may be different from your husband’s and you need to be compatible within a period of time. The egg of the womb is released every month and it lasts for 14 days. If you miss conception this month, you can conceive next month. I have learnt something since I met Jesus that is against the beliefs of the people in the world. They say opportunity lost cannot be regained; no! With Jesus Christ, OPPORTUNITY LOST CAN BE REGAINED AND MODIFIED!
It does not matter your background. It does not matter your past or present. God only allowed you to be who you are because through that channel, when He blesses you, other people from that dimension would also be encouraged.

I prophesy that you will be great. I prophesy unto you that all opportunities you have lost will come back. I have one book titled ‘Don’t worry’ I will advice you to get a copy and you will understand many great and wonderful things.
I do not worry because I always work within my power. At times some people worry because they feel they are in competition with others. I met someone and I gave him some advice. I told him that three things can kill very fast and these things are;
1. Fame: Over-ambitious people can do anything for fame. If you are in that category be careful because you can die through that.
2. Money: Making money just anyhow is dangerous. You need to begin something, yes but if you begin as a small entity, God is capable of making you great. All you need to do is to stay within the rules of God.
3. Women: Permit me to say this to the men if you are a woman. As a man, you need to be careful about women. Women are good but if you are not careful to treat and live with them well, you will lose everything. Stay with one partner. If you have two wives or a concubine, that is your end as a man and although you are living, you are living in an extra-time. Our forefathers destroyed their destinies in Africa because of polygamy. Also, if you are a woman, be very careful about men. Can you imagine a woman with many children with different men? It is happening and such women always work below their ability.
HOW TO OVERCOME WORRY.
Get my book titled ‘Don’t Worry’ and you will get more insight to this. If you want to overcome worry, there are three ‘doctors’ you need to visit.
  1. Dr. Diet. You need to eat good food and not eat just anyhow. Good food is not expensive since inception. Eat vegetables and fruits. If you eat good foods, you have fewer problems with your health so for you as an individual you have knocked out sicknesses, bad dreams, obesity etc.
  2. Dr. Merry. Make yourself happy. If you know green is your favourite colour, have more greens around you. Since God created the Garden of Eden and man destroyed it, He has not created Eden again and we are supposed to create our own Eden for ourselves.
  3. Dr. Happiness. Smile and admire yourself. Be content with what you have. You do not need to be moody. Now tell yourself again “I will not worry!”
