TODAY’S HEADLINE: Questioning God?

Exodus 5:2 (KJV) “And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go”

Who is the Lord? What a challenging question asked by the king of Egypt! Many people directly or indirectly ask God this kind of contemptuous question these days. They are so devil-possessed; and self-obsessed with self-reliance. False self-sufficiency made them arrogantly draw battle line against the Almighty. Asking who God is means asking God to prove and approve His existence, potency and efficacy. Just like Pharaoh, such people may be swept away by the violent reply of the Almighty. They may also receive the kind of humiliation of king Nebuchadnezzar as the answer. Any conversation playing down God’s graceful and miraculous role or action is from the pit of hell. Sidetrack and circumventing Jehovah in affairs stir God’s fiercest violent response. His glory He won’t share with anyone. Warring against God’s authority is joking with Consuming Fire. Haman questioned the power of the God of the Jews by his annihilation plans; his treachery boomerang and consumed him, his family and cohorts. The enemies of Daniel tried to mess up his God; they ended up finishing themselves. As well, on his way to Damascus, hear Saul asking who the Lord was in (Acts 9:5) “And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks”. Anyone demanding who God is should be ready to receive some divine bout-blows. However, there are those who with genuine reverence seek to know who God is. Elisha shouted at river Jordan: Where is the Lord God of Elijah? He was only demanding supernatural intervention of his Master’s God. Moses asked God’s identity; he got the reply: ‘I AM WHO I AM’. Seeking to know more of God is quite different from asking questions to challenge His sovereign supremacy. Lucifer tried that in heaven, he was doomed, and expunged out. Woe unto him who fight against God. Such a man is invariably defeated decisively. God is unquestionable my friend. He is the ‘Greater Than Solomon’; omniscience, and therefore all wise. I admonish a believer in the thoughtful Word of Mary in (John 2:5) “…… Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it”. Retorts and murmuring are interpreted as questioning the integrity, power and faithfulness of God. Please appease Him; do not aggrieve Him.

TODAY’S HEADLINE: Covenant Keeping God

Genesis 9:9 (KJV) “And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you”

Covenant is an agreement, understanding, pact and expectation between two or more parties; to do and not to do what is specified in the agreement. Covenant is the author, target and destination of any relationship. It is an abstract, but tangible Memoradum of Understanding. Without a covenant, there cannot be cooperation, collective direction, or common goal. Inadequate covenant produces disagreements, divisions, disaffection, incomprehension and conflict of interests. Therefore, it is evident that unity is faith. So, people stand in union; and fall in discord. Solidarity principle is applicable in the spiritual matters as well as it is in the physical realm. Hear this in (Matthew 12:25) “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand”. The ordinance of God operates by mutual principle. The Word of God is the unfailing, infallible covenant of God. Things work fine when all the parties involved in a pact play their roles good. Nothing works in independently as an island. The divine principle of interdependence is a universal grand covenant. However, covenant operates by the applicable guiding clauses. These clauses are either the attracting rewards, or the due recompense. Meanwhile, breaking covenant automatically means disobedience, disregard, dishonor, betrayal, confusion, dishonesty, unprincipled and unreliability, etc. God keeps His promises to believers all the time. Listen to (Psalms 105:8) “He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations”. God is dependable and eternally loyal to His pronouncements. The million dollar questions are these: Can the Almighty God count on you? Can your fellow man lean on you? Are you not a disappointment? Faithfulness is the solution. It pays to be in track with covenant. This Word is for a confirmed covenant keeper: (Exodus 19:5) “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine”. Amen in agreement.

TODAY’S HEADLINE: Freedom of Worships

Joshua 24:15 (KJV) “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD”

Worship means sacred reverence, obeisance and adoration of the Almighty Deity, or a freely chosen object. Serving God implies obeying Him. Worship and service should be a matter of personal conviction. Faith is a free choice of religion and conscience. That is the reason worship is by coercion is forbidden in civilized world. More so, freedom is the opinion of God concerning spiritual affiliation or service. He created and designed man as a Free Morale Agent. Man was made with choices, inteligence, and freedom to pursue wills and opinions. Some chose to be atheists. Many chose to go for manmade gods. Some folks dive for philosophy and theories. Many worship Satan. Meanwhile, the only true God of heaven and earth will never force anyone to Worship Him. Jesus would rather evangelize with love, and demonstrate miraculous power to woo, prove and convince man to believe in God. I keep wondering how a mortal man will carry fatal weapons to defend God. Harassing or forcing people to serve a god in some certain manners portray an inept deity. Religion should be preached, campaigned and canversed; and not used as platform of oppression or suppression. Worshipping God is better seeing as a spiritual contest, not as a battle. Allow God to showcase Himself as the Almighty. Hear Elijah in (1 Kings 18:24) “And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken”. Queen Jezebel was an example of a religious intolerance. Nebuchadnezzar too forced and threatened his subjects to worship his golden image. Aaron as well raised the idol of golden calf in the wilderness. Nontheless, God is not naive. Performance of outstanding miracles by the prophets, Jesus and the Apostles was to exhibit the truth about the omnipotence of the living God of creation. Senseless outburst of rage and confrontation is belittling God as impotent. Hence, let God contest for Himself if actually He is God. I admonish believers join the angels to worship and ardour the God of heaven as in (Revelation 7:11) “And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God”. As you serve the Lord God; He shall bless your water and bread; and take sicknesses far away from you. In Jesus name. Amen.

TODAY HEADLINE: Free Indeed

John 8:36 (KJV) “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”

Freedom means the liberty to make choice; and act as willing. It is a state of absolute emancipation from shackles or check-mate. It as well connotes being out of traps, troubles and bondage. Whatever that is inhibiting health, potentials, grace, endowment, gifts, prayers, talent and progress is nothing but gags or bondage. Deliverance is invariably the author of freedom anyway. When a man is sick, poor, oppressed and depressed; he needs to be released by a bigger force or power. The good news is that divine rescue is possible if the afflicted somebody run to God. However, it is unfortunate that most troubled people stray away from God for solutions. Hear this strong promise of deliverance in (Isaiah 49:25) “But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children”. Several seemingly free people on the streets are actually in spiritual bondage. Without deliverance, holiness is unattainable; and possessing one’s possessions is a fooling dream. An incapacitated someone cannot realize destiny optimally. This spiritual imprisonment is worse than physical incarceration. Overwhelming demonic attacks is the source of all human problems. So, do not hold flesh and blood accountable; satanic agents and cohorts are the culprits. Addictions, misbehavior, crimes, delays, divorces, infidelity, gay, nightmares, accidents, diseases, failures, poverty, etc, are all in the stealing, killing and destroying agenda of Satan. In order to regain freedom, I admonish you: 1. Connect the Holy Spirit for liberty 2. Call the name of Jesus often 3. Seek an anointed deliverance minister 4. Make the Word of God the standard for your life 5. Embrace God’s kind of faith 6. Be anointed by the anointed materials like blessed handkerchief, oil, water, hand-laying 7. You may need to fast to overcome some agents of affliction 8. Identify and attach yourself to your prophet. By prophet Israel was delivered and sustained 9. Be conscious of the appropriate covenant demands. I pray for somebody; the Lord God who freed Peter, Paul, Silas and Joseph will release you by divine amnesty. The power the healed Naaman, Job and Hezekiah will heal you. God who delivered Mary Magdalene will set you free. Also, the Almighty who gave David, Jehoshaphat, Moses, and Daniel victory over adversaries will help you to triumph. I command as Jesus in (John 11:44) “…. Loose him, and let him go”. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

TODAY HEADLINE: No Labour Loss

Hebrews 6:10 (KJV) “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister”

Labour means efforts muttered towards achieving a desired goal. It connotes inputs, contest, and involvement contributed for some targeted results. In other words, labour is an enduring push or venture to secure some beneficial gains. If works are no more working; It is a labour in futility. Labouring to no avail is the mother of frustration and sagged hope. However, morale is heightened; and contenance is automatically improved where expectations are not dashed. Nothing is tiresome like a fruitless agility. Hitting one’s mark in life is glorious like being awarded a joyful medal; or winning a much celebrated trophy. The tears of award is not that one of sorrow; but an emotion of overwhelming joy. The sorow and travails of challenges is often dampened by the celebration of the eventual championship. Of course, it is pertinent to understand that God is a rewarder and not a user of men. Hear this in (Hebrews 11:6) “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. It is a universal phenomenon that victory is sweet and desirable. It builds up morale and confidence. As well it confirms a man’s authority in his area of discipline. Success makes mentors and worthy leaders. No man is motivated by serial stories of woes and failures. Whereas, testimonies of elation and breakthrough are edifying; and are spirit lifters. Enough of labour loss my friend. I experienced it in the past. It was a pitiful merrygoround saga. Meanwhile, some winning agents are: 1. Ask the Holy Ghost if the pusuit is of God 2. Get adequate knowledge of the reasons for the project before engaging 3. Work on it with focus, tenacity and dedication 4. Ask God to use grace, favor and divine empowerment to help you succeed 5. Sometime, deliverance is needed to be released from the forces of Satan militating against one’s pleasant rewards 6. Be determined to give God all the glory for your accomplishment 7. Be ready to encourage other with your graceful testimony. I admonish you to be hardworking, with the mentality that labour loss is not Godly. Anyway, rewards shall be according to the kind, quantity and quality of your works. Listen to Jesus in (Revelation 22:12) “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be”. Amen.

TODAY’S HEADLINE: Eschew Indolence

Proverbs 22:13 (KJV) “The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets”

An Indolent is a slothful man. He exhibits the disposition of lay-back, idleness, reserved and laziness. An Indolent refuses to bother, budge, move, strive, and break even in order to scale through. He enjoys the stagnated comfort zone, and cannot push forward for a better change. This kind of people hate labour and challenges. They are not courageous, strong and rugged. More than often go for shortcut, idle wishes, bootlegging, easy virtue, kickback, and backdoor activities. Some symptoms of laziness are: Too much sleeping; Cannot struggle; Excuses; Lover of undue gratification; Sluggishness, Running from challenges; Daydreaming, Unenthusiastic; Dullness, Lacking value; Procrastination; Inability to dare; Potential wastage, etc. Engaging one’s hands in a gainful enterprise is Godly, profitable, peaceful and replenishing. Hear this in (Proverbs 13:11) “Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase”. You have to work your works, if your works must work for you. There is no free lunch anywhere, except the one on a mouse trap. Praying only and not working it out is playing away ones life without knowing. Meanwhile, some benefits of being hardworking are: Achievements, dignity, excellence, relevance, health, provisions, procurement, connections, etc. Faith without works is irresponsible. It is a man’s handiwork that God will bless. Even luck, means preparation meeting opportunity. Chances slip and bypass a lazy folk. Hear (Proverbs 18:9) “He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster”. A man who will not work will end up in the woods of unfulfilled dreams and empty wishes. Hard works does not kill; but the fear of it does. God was first introduced at Genesis as a workman. He found no rest until He finished creation. Hear Jesus in (John 5:17) “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work”. May you not slack; it leads to poverty.

TODAY’S HEADLINE: Man’s Trio Components

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV) “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ”

Just like the Godhead is Three in One; so also man is comprised of distinct trio entities. In the supreme Deity, we have God who is the Heavenly Father; the Son who is Jesus of Nazareth; and the Holy Spirit who is the comforter. The Holy Trinity is not a concept; rather a tangible reality. This is best explained by the possible three forms water can take. It may be in solid (Iced); in liquid (flowing); in gaseous (evapirated steam). In either of these three forms, water remains water. So also, God is one and only God whether expressed as the Father, Son, or Holy Ghost. Three distinct entities perfectly united in one tangible union. Same as well in man; He has the spirit, soul and body. However, the spirit is the real man. It is the original breath of God as breathed into Adam’s nostrils. The soul is otherwise known as the heart or the mind. It is the consciousness, faculty, emotion, life or irritability that makes man a morale agent. Soul is the bridge linking the spirit to the body for determination. Meanwhile, the body is the housing of the Spirit and the soul. It is the only reason for the physical existence and functions. When the body expires; the breath is withdrawn; and a man is declared dead in the terrestrial realm. That means the spirit has departed with it’s soul to the great beyond. There is life after life. Therefore the healthy spirit, soul and body make up a healthy and wholesome complete man. An unregenerated spirit is lost, satanic, and awaiting second death, which is everlasting hell. Whereas a regenerated spirit stays with God, holy angels, and saints in blissful heaven. The soul may be sick or perverted anyway. That is when the mind is lost; hence dominated and controlled by the flesh, demons and disobedience. This is insanity. King Saul was an example of this. Also the physique may be mangled, poisoned, weak, age or ill. Maintenance of body is essential to longevity. So, the whole armor of God is necessary for the absolute well being of all the three components of a human being. Hear this in (Ephesians 6:13) “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”. The span of the body has a hundred and twenty years warrantee. This was established by God through Moses. Nonetheless, the spirit and it’s soul last forever. I admonish you appropriately take good care of all your structural components. I pray for a believer in (3 John 1:2) “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”. Amen.
