We believe the birth of Jesus which the world celebrates in this season brought Kingdom miracles to the world like never before. God is a miracle worker. Miracles are God at work. God hasn't changed.

Miracles: The Great Joy Producer.

Acts 8:5,6,7,8 Miracles announce God. Miracles glorify God. John 2:11 Miracles are important. Miracles are good. Nothing brings joy to people like miracles! God wants you to have miracles. Mark 9:23 Miracles are the work of God. Miracles are the result of God's Word and Spirit working together. Genesis 1:2,3 The greatest miracle is the birth of Jesus Christ. God is the performer and giver of miracles. Miracles are God's will for you. Healing  is the miracles of that improves our health. Healing miracles are God's will for you. Matthew 15:26 Miracles of healing is a right for the child of God. Miracles happen when God intervenes in human affairs. Miracles are God's way of letting an individual or people know that He is among them. John 20:30 Miracles and healings are the right and privilege of God's people. The concept of advertising didn't start with man. The idea of advertising started with God. Miracles, healings, signs and wonders are

Prayer and Courage.

1 Chronicles 28:20 God wants us to be courageous. Deuteronomy 31:6 Courage, along with prayer are requirements for us to make the most of life. God has great plans for each of us but we will need courage to receive everything the Lord has for us. 1 Corinthians 16:13 Your inheritance, your portion in Christ Jesus is a lion share. God's plan for you is big. So you need a big heart to receive your big inheritance. You need a lion heart to take your lion share. Joshua 1:3-9 A lion heart is a brave and courageous heart. Lions are animals associated with bravery and courage. Jesus had a courageous heart. David, Abraham, Gideon and everyone else who has pleased God and walked with Him has had to be courageous at different times. We will have to be courageous to be who God wants us to be. Psalm 27:1 We have to be courageous to stand for truth. Psalm 56:3,4 It takes courage to obey God against all odds. It takes courage to be different and stand for Jesus Christ. There

Prayer: Your fight Strategy

Ephesians 6:12 The Bible uses words like fight, contend and wrestle when it talks talks about the belivers battles. Life is a fight. Life is a wrestle to fulfill God's plan and destiny for our lives. Every hero of faith had a fight on their hands and they all had key enemies who wanted to stop them. Eg. Gideon had the Amalikites, David had the Philistines,, Samson had the Philistines, Nehemiah had Samballat and Tobia, Jesus Christ has the Philistines and religious authority of his day. Everyone and everything God loves attracts Satan. Job 1:8-12 Life becomes a fight because you have an adversary who is intimidated and upset you are on the side of the Lord. 1 Peter 5:8 Your adversary is not a human being though he uses human beings. Revelation 12:7-9 There are human beings who make themselves available for God to use, there are also those who make themselves available for Satan to use. Exodus 22:18 You are the one who determines who you will allow to use you. Joshua 24:

Laugh Out Loud.

Psalm 2:4 Joy should be your portion as a child of God. You should have joy and know joy not because you don't face challenges but because the joy producer lives on the inside of you. James 1:2-3 Joy will make you laugh. Genesis 18:12-15 You should laugh because your heavenly Father is laughing. Psalm 2:4 You should laugh because you have the gospel which is good news. Isaiah 61:1 You should laugh because you are a son and daughter of God. John 1:12 You should laugh because God is dealing with your unrepentant enemy. Laughter is a product of joy! God is your joy, for this reason you should be joyful. If you can laugh in the face of adversity you have won over that difficult situation. If you have joy and maintain your joy while the enemy is at work, victory will be yours. God is a God who laughs. God isn't intimidated by anything or what what you're going through. God laughs because His children make Him happy. God laughs because joy proceeds from Him. G

Prayer and Opportunities

1 Corinthians 16:9 Prayer can create opportunities. Prayer can open doors that had been closed. Not only does prayer create opportunities, prayer is an opportunity. Prayer is your opportunity to : 1) Reason with God. Isaiah 1:18 2) Negotiate with God. 1 Samuel 2 3) Tap into the supernatural. James 5:17 4) Receive from God. 1 Chronicles 4:10 5) Communicate with the creator. Luke 11:2 Jabeez used prayer to change his status in life, he made good use of the prayer opportunity. When God's people start seeing prayer as an opportunity, we will take better advantage of our chances to pray. Many people see it as a rare opportunity when they meet famous, rich people, royals and celebrities. We take pictures with them, we don't miss the chance to take their autographs or number if possible. How much more the creator of all, how much more the Father of all Spirits? It is a privilege to talk to Him in prayer, it is a great opportunity to meet Him in the place of prayer.

Tragedy, Temptation and Triumph

Life is a battle. Ephesians 6:12 We need to understand life is a battle. It requires positioning ourselves properly, mapping out the right strategies and developing the right mindset. In every war or battle, there are tragedies. Battles do not respect the status of men. In every war or battle both good and bad men die, soldiers of great standing fall, and brilliant fighters can end tragically. That is what life is like. Good men die, bad men pass on, good men make it, bad men also survive battles. Tragedy can befall a person in life whether you are good or bad. Temptation comes to all men in this life. Christian or not you will face temptation. In a war or battle, sometimes an opponent will set traps to defeat or capture their enemy. In life, our enemy the devil also sets traps to defeat us. Temptations are the traps of Satan for us on the battlefield of life. Revelations 12:11 With every trap of temptation, God makes a way of escape for us. 1 Corinthians 10:13 It is G

Prayers and Vows

Job 22:27,28 Vows are powerful things. God takes vows seriously. Deuteronomy 23:21-23 Heaven acknowledges and backs up our vows. Numbers 30:2 Prayer is also powerful! Vows and prayer work together. A vow is a promise an individual or a group of people make to God. If you make a vow to God make sure you keep it. Proverbs 20:25 Vows bring us into individual covenants with God. Vows are serious things before God because God does not joke with covenants. Ecclesiastes 5:4-8 When covenants are made between God and a men, God will always do His part, it is men who have to make sure they are faithful. Psalm 89:34 God will always be faithful, faithfulness is His very nature. We make vows to God through prayer. 1 Samuel 1:10-11 A vow takes effect when we negotiate with God in the place of prayer to do something for the Lord or meet a need God has on earth with the belief that God will meet our own needs to. When a vow is accepted, prayer gets a quick answer. 1 Samuel 1:20. G

Season's Greetings!

God is good! It is that time of the year when we start counting down to the new year and looking forward to the time the world has chosen to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ- Christmas! Here in our church 'Light Of Jesus Christ Assembly' we wish you the best of this season and a prosperous new year.

Prayer, Promises and Manifestation.

2 Corinthian 1:19,20 Philippians 1:19 Romans 8:19 Prayer is the lifestyle and life line of the believer. Prayer is daily communication with the Father. Promises are the benefits that can be ours in the Word of God. Manifestation is the fulfillment of God's Word in our life and the appearance of God's benefits in our life. Our manifestation is part of our destiny here on earth. There is also the manifestation that takes place when Jesus comes back. Prayer, the promises of God and manifestations are all connected and work together. Prayer aids the fulfillment of God's promises to us, which brings about our manifestation. It is the will of God that you manifest as the son of God/daughter of God that you are. Your destiny depends on it. The life and destiny of those your life is supposed to influence depends on it. The world needs you to manifest. Your manifestation adds some flavor to life and the world, so you must contribute to the world by manifesting. D

Blessings, Adversity and Victory!

Exodus 14:10-31 By an encounter God arranged the deliverance of an entire nation. By an encounter God can bring you out of every problem and adversity. It is not the will of God that your problems, limitation and challenges should overcome you. Exodus 3:1-10 You are designed by God to conquer every adversity and evil. Romans 8:36,37 Like Moses you have come to the mountain of God every time you show up in hurch/Zion. Exodus 3:1 An assembly of God's people, a church, a ministry is a mountain of God. It is a spiritual Zion of God where the blood of sprink;ling is having effect and where there is is high level angelic activity. Hebrews 12:22-24 Today, you can have victory. Your blessings can and will be released every time you show up in God's service. Psalm 128:5 The impossible becomes possible when we show up in Zion and tap into the mysteries of Zion. In Christ Jesus, there are blessings for you! God wants you blessed. Galatians 3:13,14 Your blessings are nec

Prayer And Focus

Proverbs 4:25 Your focus inlife matters. Your focus determines the direction your life will go. Your spiritual focus is very important, we are to stay focused on the word of God, being heavenly minded and the things of God's Spirit. Colossians 3:2 This will require discipline. Staying spiritually focused is a major way we keep Satan out of our lives. Keep Satan out of our life lives we must! Satan doesn't bring anyone into their glory, when Satan uses people he uses them to their detriment and destruction. Eg. Absalom, Ahithopael, Judas Iscariot. Focus has to do with our mind, our discipline and our eyes. Job knew about being focused in the area of his eyes/sight. Job 31:1 Being focused has benefits to our lives. Benefits Of Focus : 1) It keeps us out of trouble. Proverbs 4:25 2) We get to our destination or vision faster. Habakuk 2:2 3) It is needed to get to the top. Proverbs 4:27, Joshua 1:8 Prayer helps us to stay focused spiritually. Matthew 6:6 Pray

Prayer And Courage

1 Chronicles 28:20 God wants us to be courageous. Deuteronomy 31:6 Courage as well as prayer are requirements for us to make the most of life. God has great plans for each of us but we will need courage to receive everything the Lord has for us. 1 Corinthians16:13 Your inheritance, your portion in Christ Jesus is a lion share. God's plan for you is big. So you need a big heart to receive your big inheritance. You need a lion heart to receive your lion share. Joshua 1:3-9 A lion heart is  brave and courageous heart. Lions are animals associated with bravery and courage. Jesus had a courageous heart. David, Abraham, Gideon and everyone else who has pleased God and walked with Him had to be courageous at different times. We will have to be courageous to be who God wants us to be. Psalm 56:3-4 It takes courage to obey God against all odds. It takes courage to be different and stand for Jesus Christ. There is a link between courage and prayer. Prayer can help supply

TIMES OF REFRESHING

Acts 3:19 A time of refreshing is a time of blessing to the battle weary saint. Our heavenly Father in His love knows there will be times we need His refreshing. God knows life is a battle. Ephesians 6:12 God knows His children will need peace, replenishment, rest and to be revived. These are the things God's refreshing offers us. When God refreshes you, you will be revived. When God refreshes you, you will know peace. When God refreshes you, you will be replenished. When God refreshes you, you will experience rest. This is why God sets seasons in place, times when His  children experience His refreshing. These are times of refreshing scheduled for you in God's Kingdom. God showed us a pattern of rest after creation. God rested on the seventh day. Genesis 2:2 It is not God's will that after fighting hard, working hard, serving God with all your heart against all odds, you do not get refreshed. Mark 6:31 A wise commander of an army doesn't just consider

Prayer: A key to constant Victory

God wants you to know great victory. 2 Corinthians 2:14 Your success in life is dependent on many factors. Many things have to come together to produce your success and victory, and prayer is one of those factors that ensures victory. The Bible is loaded with stories of people who received victory after prayer. Men like Asa, David, Elijah, Blind Bartimeus and Jesus Christ. Asa. 2 Chronicles 14:8-15 David. 1 Samuel 30:6-20 Elijah. 1 Kings 18:46 Blind Bartimeus. Mark 10:46-52 Jesus the Christ. Matthew 4:1-2 We see these men performing exploits through prayer and after prayer. If truly God is the same yesterday, today and forever, what He did for these men He can dp for you. Hebrews 13:8 Since prayer is an important aspect of our spiritual walk, let us make the most of it. Since prayer is an ingredient in our success and victory, let us pray well today. God still answers prayers. God is a Father who appreciates hearing from His sons and daughters. If we humble ourselves

The Cycle Of Blessing

Jeremiah 17:7-8 God is a God who works with the seed. Genesis 1:29 The kingdom of God is likened to a seed. Matthew 13:31 The word of God is also likened to a seed. Luke 8:11 To succeed in life, we need God's blessing. Genesis 1:28 Jesus is called the seed of the woman. Genesis 3:15 God's blessing  makes all the difference, that's why God promises to bless the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17 God wants us to live in a continuous flow of his blessings. Psalm 20:4 Obedience brings and attracts the blessing of God. Deuteronomy 28:1-13 Your success has to do with your seed. Luke 6:38 Your obedience has to do with your blessing. When we are continuously obedient with our seeds we enter into a lifestyle of success and blessings. When we are continuously obedient with our seeds we enter into God's circle of blessing. Leviticus 23:15-21 We see this in the old testament. There were seasons when God would pour out a blessing upon the Israelites but He always told

Anointed For A Purpose.

1 John 2:27 Isaiah 10:27 Proverbs 4:18 There is something you are anointed for. There is something you are able to do better than other people who may be doing the same thing. It is not everything God wants you to do. It is not every single thing you will succeed at significantly. But there are somethings you will succeed at significantly because you are graced and anointed by God for those things. Imagine King David trying by all means to be a physician/doctor? Imagine Gideon the judge trying to be a writer by all means or Moses the leader prophet trying to be a fisherman by force? None of them would succeed! God anoints you for a purpose. The purpose of the anointing is to help you function in the office and assignment God has given to you. The anointing helps you succeed. The anointing is for your success. The anointing takes you forward in life. The anointing teaches you what you need to know in life. The anointing makes life easier for you. The anointing helps

Prayer And Joy.

Joy is an important aspect of God's kingdom. Romans 14:17 Joy is different from happiness. Joy is an evidence of our faith. Joy is the way God wants you to live. Joy in the midst of resistance, joy despite challenges, joy irrespective of unpleasant situations is evidence of faith. James 1:2,3 And without faith it is impossible to please God. Let God see your joy. Psalm 47:1 Your joy is a spiritual signal to God that you're still in the battle. Your joy in the place of prayer and after prayer is a signal to God that you believe He hears you and has answered you. Proverbs 10:28 Being joyful in God's presence is evidence your relationship with God is cordial. Ecclesiastes 9:7 Being joyful has great benefits! Joyful people are healthier, stronger and go further than those who don't know how to be joyful. Nehemiah 8:10 Joy will help you draw from the Lord, the things Jesus paid the price for you to have. Isaiah 12:3 Your joy shows your faith. You need faith t

RELEASING THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL.

Hebrews 4:12 The Word of God is powerful. Romans 1:16 The gospel of Jesus Christ can release us from bondage, set us free from sin, release God's blessings and empower us for success. This means the Word of Go has power! It takes power to release people and set them free! As simple as the Word of God is, it is powerful. The Word of God is simple. The new testament doctrine is simple. 2 Corinthians 11:3 Jesus made it simple. The simplicity of the gospel makes our devotion sincere and pure. It is simple because it is about grace, faith and truth. It is simple because there are no animal sacrifices, shedding of blood and old testament rituals. It is simple because it doesn't require endless genealogies and fables. It is simple because you don't need to do a load of research or engage in complex processes to receive salvation. Receiving Christ is a simple, straight forward process. All it involves is hearing and believing, taking and accepting God's Word a

Prayer And Destiny

Romans 8:29 Psalm 65:4 1 Corinthians 2:7 Ephesians 1:5,11 God has a great destiny for all His children. Your destiny is connected to your prophecy. Your prophecy is what heaven is saying about you, it is what heaven has written about you. Those things things written about you are the things that manifest as your destiny here on earth. 2 Thessalonians 2:13 The earthly life of Jesus, from His birth, to His ministry, to His death and resurrection were all fulfillments of his prophecies. Matthew 2:5,6 Your destiny is what God has pre-ordained to happen for you and to you. Titus 1:1 Your prophecies are the written or spoken revelationsof what God has ordained about you. Your destiny is good. Jeremiah 29:11 Your destiny is glorious. Ephesians 1:18 Jesus chose the destiny He had here on earth so that you can have a glorious destiny. Hebrews 2:10 Satan is the enemy of your destiny. He wants to sabotage and destroy what God wants you to manifest here on earth. Satan is agai

Worship: A lifestyle Of The Kingdom

John 4:24 Worship is something that is constantly and regularly done in heaven, in God's presence, in God's Kingdom. Everyone in a geographical location has a lifestyle. The Americans have a lifestyle. The British, the Chinese, the Nigerian, the Ghanian and all nations and ethnic groups have their own unique lifestyles rooted in their culture. It is the same way with spiritual things. People from the kingdom of darkness have their own evil lifestyles because of their evil culture. People from the kingdom of God also have a way of living which comes from their culture of love and care. John 13:34 Worship is a major aspect of the kingdom lifestyle. Worship is a way of living that requires sacrificing to please the Lord. Worship is beyond and much more than singing nice praise songs to the Lord. Worship to the kingdom man or woman, to the individual who is a son or daughter of God is a continuous way of living. God values worship. 1 Chronicles 16:23-31 Lucifer, the

Kingdom Power

1 Corinthians 4:20 Ephesians 6:10 In this world and in the Spirit realm power is very important. Everything that prevails in this world prevails by some sort of power. God has power, God has all power and His power is available for His sons and daughters to prevail with. The Kingdom of God is a kingdom of power. 1 Corinthians 4:20 It is a beautiful kingdom where there is righteousness, peace and joy. Romans 14:7 It is also a kingdom that will prevail on the the earth by God's power at work in His people. John 14:12 The kingdom power is also called the power of the age to come. Hebrews 6:5 What are the benefits of Kingdom Power, the power of the age to come or the power of God's Spirit ? It is power that creates wealth. Deuteronomy 8:18 It is power that subdues the enemy. Luke 10:19 It is power that gives victory. 1 John 5:4 It is power that gives rights and authority. Luke 10:19 It is power that makes God's saints manifest. (Check: John 1:12, Romans 8:19)

Prayer and Humility

Philippians 2:3 Proverbs 11:2 Humility is an asset when it comes to prayer. Humility is a noble and valuable quality of God's kingdom. James 4:10 Humility makes God look in our direction. It makes God direct and teach us. Psalm 25:8,9 Humility makes God release answers to us. Humility makes God honor us. Proverbs 15:33 Getting the answers we need from the Lord is part of what our praying is all about, so why not apply some humility when we pray to God? 2 Chronicles 7:14 We have every reason to be humble before God when we pray because :- 1) We need what humility brings. Mark 9:35 2) It's a virtue sons and daughters of God should have. 1 Peter 3:8 3) God sees us, knows us, knows our flaws, and can forgive us. Hebrews 4:13 4) It is a requirement to receiving from God. Micah 6:8 We cannot afford to be arrogant, impatient , rude or try and force God to do things for us. Humility is what God requires even in the place of prayer. 2 Chronicles 7:14 We just have to

The Atmosphere Of God's Kingdom

Luke 17:21 Revelation 21:1-4 The kingdom of God is a place. The kingdom of God is also a presence. The kingdom of God reflects God. The kingdom of God shows His power, majesty, awesomeness and taste. Although God's kingdom is a place, it operates as Gods' presence within God's people. In the natural, when we see people's mannerisms, hear their accents, see their dressing and observe their behaviour we know which country or part of the world they are from. In the same way we should be able to tell who God's kingdom people are by observing their speech and lifestyles. When we go into a place, the decorations and interior design can sometimes tell us where the occupants of that place are from. The place will have a certain 'presence'. It is the same thing with God's kingdom. It has an atmosphere and presence. As God's people, the 'atmosphere' of God's kingdom should reflect here on earth through our lives. People should see u

Prayer, Praise & Power

Philippians 4:6,7 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Deuteronomy 9:29 Prayer, praise and power go together. Prayer activates angels. Hebrews 1:14 Praise moves God. Psalm 22:3 Power comes from praise and prayer. Praise is our responsibility as believers, we are meant to give God the praise He is due come rain come shine.. Prayer should be our lifestyle as followers of Christ as we see from Jesus's lifestyle and examples to us. Power sould be our experience as people of the Kingdom. 1 Corinthians 4:20 The Kingdom of God is a Kingdom of power, so as sons of God we should be manifesting the power of God here on our earthly journey. Sons and daughters of God are called to a life of power. There is power in praiseand there is power in prayer, and there is power in being a son of God because there is power in God's Word. Luke 12:32 There is power in God. Exodus 13:9 If you want to live a life of power, focus on God through praise and prayer. Praise and worship is a major way G

Prayer & Emotions.

Proverbs 16:32 Philippians 4:7 Our prayers are important, our emotions are also important. Our emotions are important because our emotions are a part of our soul. Your soul is made up of your will, your emotions and your mind. The state of our soul is part of what determines our understanding of spiritual things. Our emotional maturity has a lot to do with how we relate with people and how we relate with God. The state of our emotions can affect our obedience to God. Moses couldn't obey God perfectly when he was angry. Exodus 32:1-22 Moses lost what he had hoped for and prayed for due to his anger. Numbers 20:8-11 Our anger is part of our emotions. Abel was killed by Cain because jealousy took over Cain. Cain could not stand that God accepted his brothers offering over his own. Jealousy is part of our emotions. Cain lost favor with God and became a murderer because he didn't master his emotions. Genesis 4:1-14 Absalom died a young man because of impatience. 2

The Importance Of The Kingdom Message.

Matthew 24:14 If the kingdom of God is not taught, men will not understand it or believe it. Romans 10:14 If men do not believe it or understand it, people cannot benefit from it. When the Kingdom message is taught we can begin to take our rightful place on earth as kings  and priests because we now have an understanding of who we are. Revelations 5:10 Our kingship is from God's kingdom. Our priesthood is from God's kingdom. A king and a priest from God's kingdom should know a thing or two about the kingdom he is from. Our kingship refers to our God given authority on earth as sons and daughters of God, it refers to our leadership. Our priesthood refers to our spiritual service on the earth for God. It is out of our priesthood that our ministries are born. The kingdom message is important because we are princes and princesses of God from His Kingdom. Our spiritual identity is tied to God's kingdom. The kingdom message is important because it is part of  pr

Fishers Of Men

Matthew 4:18,19 Mark 16:15 Jesus had something better for Simon Peter and his brother Andrew than catching fish. Men who were catching fish were to become men who were catching human beings. Jesus upgraded the dignity, the ability, and the importance of what Simon Peter and his brother Andrew were doing for a living, both before men and before God. Human beings are of greater value than fish. Human beings have an eternal value compared to fish which have a temporary, earthly value. The call of Jesus to Peter and Andrew was a call to something bigger, better, longer lasting and with eternal impact. That is what God is calling us to. God is calling us to a higher purpose, a bigger vision and a better life. Just as Peter and Andrew were called, we have all been called to be part of the Father's business which is going into the World to preach the gospel. Mark 16:15 Becoming fishers of men is part of the better things God has for you. 'Go' is an action word. To

Prayer: the game changer

1 John 5:14 Prayer guarantees that you won't fight life's battles alone, that God helps you in life. Prayer is a game changer. In the game of life prayer is essential. I refer to life as a game in this message because the Apostle Paul refers to life as a race. A race is a game. One of the best ways you can spend your time is to pray. Talking to God about everything, and every experience you have can be life changing. There is nothing to small or to big to talk to God about. God wants to hear about your health. God wants to hear about your finances, your emotions,your failures and your successes. God is interested in your car, He wants to hear about it. God respects your opinion. He wants you to tell Him how you feel. God wants you to discuss with Him about your day. God wants to hear from you about that boss who mistreated you. He wants you to tell Him when you feel like a loser or a victor in life. God wants to rejoice with you when you succeed, when you achi

Kingdom Upgrade

John 3:31 John 3:6 John 1:13 It doesn't matter how rich and powerful a man or woman is who doesn't know God, such an individual is not better than a person who knows God. What makes us better is not material or financial riches, our businesses or enterprises, what makes us better is our relationship with God. When you became a son or daughter of God, you became a better person. 2 Corinthians 6:18 Heaven doesn't see you as an ordinary person but a spirit being that God Himself has given birth to. John 1:13 A man or woman who is in the Kingdom of God is better than someone who is not. When you are in God's Kingdom, when you have become a son/daughter of God your life has been upgraded. Spiritually, your standing and position is better than that of a person who does not know God. Ephesians 2:6 That you know God and have a relationship with Him means your life has been improved by God's Kingdom. It means heaven knows you. It means the blessings of God'

Prayer & Desire.

Psalm 37:4 God promises to satisfy the hunger of His people. Matthew 5:6 The hunger and thirst referred to in Matthew 5:6 is is your desire. Prayer is very important to the believer. Our desire is also very important. What you desire is what you will aspire for. What you desire is what you will pray about. What you desire is what you want. What you desire is what God will give to you, if you delight in Him. God knows we fall emotionally sick when we don't receive our desire. Proverbs 13:12 Your desire is your hunger. Your desire is what you will be passionate about before God and man. Your desire is what will keep you motivated when others stop. One of the major reasons we don't achieve the things we want is because we loose motivation. We loose motivation to achieve what we want because we give up on our desire. The Bible doesn't show us that Nehemiah heard a voice from God to go and build the walls of Jerusalem, but he had a strong desire to do so. As

Kingdom Invasion

Mark 1:15 The Kingdom of God is going to take over. Daniel 2:44 The Kingdom of God is going to fill this earth. Daniel 2:34,35 The presence, power, influence and wickedness of  Satan will not be upon this earth forever because the Kingdom of God is invading the earth. Acts 2:1-4 Satan is presently the God of this world and his wickedness and operation is only for a period of time. 2 Corinthians 4:4 We should be kicking the devil out of our environment because God's Kingdom has invaded the earth. Matthew 8:28,29 The Kingdom of God has been gradually taking over on this earth and will continue to do so until the eternal punishment of Satan and his gang. That's what we saw Jesus doing, taking over everywhere He went by the knowledge and power of the Kingdom. God's Kingdom can prevail in this physical realm because it is God's idea. God's Kingdom can prevail in this physical realm because human beings are the channels through which the Kingdom of God manifes

The Mystery and Priesthood of Melchizedek

Genesis 14:11-20 From the scriptures we know it's not everyone who is on this earth and looks like a human being that's a human being. Not everyone we see is human! Angels are not human beings, but from time to time some of them manifest in the form of human beings to carry out God's will among us. This is why the Bible encourages us to show hospitality to strangers. Some have blessed angels in the act of being kind and hospitable. In the same way, demons and fallen angels can also take on forms as people temporarily, to carry  out Satan's agenda. The visitors Abraham had in Genesis 18:2 were not human beings, they were divine but appeared in the form of human beings. From the old testament to the new testament, we see divine visitors coming to the earth in one form or another. Either in human form or their  divine form. The fallen angels who married women in Genesis 6 were not human but took on the form of human beings and married women to carry out Sata

Such a farmer will miss the harvest that is due to him because the farmer couldn't wait for the due season of harvest. He will dig out his seed because he hasn't seen a harvest within a short while or he may stop watering the seed and the seed will die in the soil.

Parables Of The Kingdom

Storytelling was an aspect of Jesus's teaching ministry. Jesus was a Master story teller. Jesus told stories to communicate divine truth, He told stories to reveal the mind of God, He told stories to help people's understanding of the Kingdom of God.

The stories Jesus told are called parables. Parables are fictional stories that have a moral or spiritual lesson within them. There is a lot we can learn from the parables of Jesus about how to live, how we should treat each other, our heavenly Father, prophecy of the future and the Kingdom of God.

Prayers For Activation.

2 Corinthians 4:7 We are full of treasures. Within you is the Kingdom of God. Luke 17:21 Within you is the God head. John 14:23 Within you are the talents, gifts and abilities God has given you. You are loaded with God's goodness. You are loaded with potential, but you have to know it. To know it is to find it. Knowing what God has put in you is equal to finding it. It is possible for a person to live for 80, 90, 100 years or more on earth and never know what they carried within them. The Kingdom of God is valuable, it can be likened to a treasure or a valuable stone, so valuable that you should focus on it because it will make you rich and support you throughout your earthly journey. Matthew 13: 44,45,46 The Kingdom of God with all it's glory and potential is within you. But the Bible tells us it is hidden . Not everyone understand the Kingdom. Not everyone reaches the Kingdom within them. Not everyone sees the Kingdom within them. We have to journey within.

THE DOOR TO THE KINGDOM

John 10:9, Psalm 51:17 Every country, city, village, town, or building has an entrance point, a gate, a door. The airports of a city or nation are the 'doors' or entrance points to that city. Your passport and visa can be likened to the key that opens the door for you to enter that nation or city. It is the same thing with spiritual things. The Kingdom of God has an entrance point. The Kingdom of God also has a key to open the door for you to enter it. Every door has a key, a code, a forb, or a proximity card to open it. Jesus is the door to God's Kingdom. You can't get into God's Kingdom outside of Jesus. Colossians 1:13 The door to God's Kingdom also has a key or access code to it. The access code or key to God's Kingdom is repentance.
