Use Your Faith!

Matthew 17:20 Every child of God has faith. We (children of God) have faith to various degrees and levels but we all have faith. Matthew 17:20 The faith you have is enough. Faith is so powerful that a small amount of it is enough to walk in power and exploits. When Christians pray or try to use their faith and nothing seems to happen, most times we assume or say the individuals do not have faith. Like the disciples of Jesus we begin to wonder what's wrong. Matthew 17:19 This is not correct. Every true Christian has faith. To perform exploits and walk in power you have to use your faith. Exploits do not answer to faithlessness. Your little faith is enough to perform exploits. Your little faith (mustard seed faith) can move mountains. It is not so much the size of your faith that creates an effect but using your faith. Your faith has to be activated. Your faith can also grow. Jude 20 The spirit realm moves and responds to faith. Matthew 9:29 Your faith will

THE STAR OF A KING!

Matthew 2:1,2 The star that was seen in the sky by the wise men in this Bible passage was no ordinary star. The way it shined by day and by night was unusual. This star was a moving star, it wasn't stagnant or fixed like all the other stars of the sky. I believe this is why we put stars at the top of the Christmas trees. This star was unusual because it is a star of an usual man. It is the star of a king. It is a star of a man born king of the Jews and king of the angels. It is the star of a man who came to earth to save and deliver you and I by His own death and with His own blood. The death of Jesus Christ happened on a cross or a tree. Tress have a very positive representation/symbolism in the Bible. I believe this is where the concept of the Christmas tree comes from. Exodus 15:25 - a tree brought sweetness to a bitter situation. Isaiah 61:3, Isaiah 60:21, John 15:1-5 -we are called the planting of the Lord, trees are plants. God's people are referred to

Parallels Between The Persian Empire & God's Kingdom.

There are similarities between the happenings in the book of Esther and spiritual truths. In the book of Esther we are shown how earthly kingdoms operate. We see what things were like during the reign of king Ahasuerus (Xerxes) who married the Jewish orphan -Esther. Ahasuerus was the sole ruler of the Persian empire and grandson  of Cyrus the great. Jesus is the ruler and Lord of the heavenly kingdom and the Son of the Father. Ahasuerus was powerful and influential. Jesus Christ is powerful and influential. Esther 1:1-8, Isaiah 9:7 Ahasuerus had a wife who lost her crown and position, Jesus had a disciple who lost his place and destiny in Jesus's ministry. Esther 1:19,20 Acts 1:16-20 The Persian empire had princes of the kingdom who accessed the king. Esther 1:14 The kingdom of God has sons/daughters (princes & princesses) of God  who can access the King because of the finished works of Christ. Hebrews 4:16 John 1:12 The Persian empire's princes had ranks.

Prayer & The Festive Season.

It's that time of the year again when we get excited the year is ending and we will soon step into a fresh and brand new year. It's that time of the year when we remember and celebrate the birth of the king of kings and Lord of Lords. Isaiah 7:14 It is the festive season. In the midst of all the happiness, lights, color, celebration and excitement it is easy to forget what is important as Christians - our prayer life. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 We should be happy and we should be excited. There is nothing wrong with celebrating Christmas as long as we don't neglect our prayer life. Romans 12:12 There's nothing wrong with the culture of Christmas which involves the giving of gifts, and showing of love, as long as we do not forget to spend time in prayer with the one Christmas is about - the Lord Jesus Christ. The place of prayer is one of the ways we spend time with Jesus the messiah. So as we go about this festive season in it's usual busy and jolly tradition

Understanding Spiritual Exchange

Numbers 18:21 1 Samuel 2:20 Isaiah 43:4 Matthew 13:46 God can be spoken to. Let's not take it for granted. It is a miracle! That the God of heaven and earth, the Father of all spirits listens to us, came down to us (as Jesus) and loves us is a miracle! Since we can talk to Him we can negotiate with Him. Isaiah 1:18 Because God communicates, we can do business with and for God. In fact we should be about the Father's business as Jesus showed us by example when He was here in human form. Luke 2:49 As we make exchanges in the natural realm we also make exchanges in the spirit realm. Exchange is the essence of business. We exchange our money for the goods and services we need. In the spirit realm our faith is the currency we use for exchange. Matthew 9:29 With faith you transact in the spirit realm. As you release your money in this physical dimension to get the goods and services you need, in the spirit dimension you use your faith in God to get everything God

Understanding Kingdom Ranks

Joel 2:8 There are many parallels between what we see in the natural and what things are like in the spirit realm. There are some similarities between kingdoms on earth and God's kingdom. God is a king and He has a kingdom. Like the kingdoms of the earth, the kingdom of God has a king, a sole ruler who owns and controls the realm of the kingdom. Matthew 6:10 Like the kingdoms of the earth, the kingdom of God reveals the glory, the power, the majesty of God and His taste. The beauty of this kingdom was designed by God Himself, God is the one who decorates His kingdom. Revelation 21:1-3 This kingdom has earthly and heavenly citizens. Just like kingdoms of the earth, the kingdom of God has officials that have different roles in them with different ranks. Ranks refer to headship, leadership, roles and structure. Every member of this kingdom family has his/her own path that's unique to him/her. Angels have different roles and ranks - warrior angels, messenger angels,

Open The Door

Revelation 3:20 God does not impose Himself on us. God is not like the devil, He  doesn't force Himself on people. Matthew 10:14 The devil doesn't take permission before forcing his way upon individuals, families and nations. Demons possess people without asking. God does things the right and legal way. John 10:2,3 The devil does things the illegal way. John 10:1 God comes into peoples lives and situations through the door of our hearts. Satan doesn't knock on the door, he doesn't need your consent; he scales the fence. Among the many virtues and attributes of God, God can be likened to a gentleman. John 10:3 Satan is a crook and ruffian. Satan and his demons don't lead people they possess people. Everything in life - spiritual and physical has an entrance point. The entrance point to a country is it's airports. The entrance point to a home is it's front door. The entrance point to a city is the city gate or toll gate. You also have

Prayer & The Father's Heart

Mark 14:36 Understanding the Father's heart will totally change the way we view life as Christians. Understanding the Father's heart will affect the way we see one another and the way we view the World. 1 John 3:1,2 Understanding the Father's heart will radically change the way we pray and what we pray for. Matthew 6:6 The heart of the Father towards you is one of love and mercy. John 14:23 The heart of the Father towards you is a heart of blessing and grace. Luke 12:32 The heart of the Father towards you is a heart of favour which gives you access to God. The heart of the Father towards you is one of peace and good will. Luke 2:14 For these reasons you have the Father's ears when you pray because the Father has given us His heart through Jesus Christ. Psalm 91:15 Jesus taught us to pray to the Father in His name. John 16:23 This is good news. Our heavenly Father is the focus, destination or address our prayers are sent to. It is good news because

Able Ministers In Christ

2 Corinthians 3:6 In Christ we have ability. Philippians 4:13 In Christ we have enablement to be who God has created us to be and to do what God wants. We have enablement to go where God wants us to go and achieve what God wants us to achieve. Matthew 16:27 We are ministers of a better covenant. We have a better covenant package than those of the old testament. Hebrews 8:5-10 It doesn't matter what the old testament prophets, kings, and judges achieved, the Bible is clear we have a better covenant than they do because of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 8:13 It doesn't matter how glorious the destiny of any individual is from the old testament scripture, as a new testament minister God has something better for you by covenant and spiritual standing. Hebrews 8:6 Spiritually, you are greater than any individual you can read about from the old testament because of the new and better covenant you have in Christ and because you are of God's kingdom. Matthew 11:11 It do

Prayer & The Spirit's Fire

1 Kings 18:36-39 Prayer is very important in a believers life. Luke 18:1 The Holy Spirit is very important in a believers life. John 14:26 The fire of the Holy Spirit is also important in a believers life. Luke 3:16,17 The fire of the Holy Spirit is a dimension of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:1-4 The fire of the Holy Spirit brings a positive change to the life of an individual. The fire of the Holy Spirit responds to and affects our prayer life. The fire of the Holy Spirit positively affects our teaching, preaching, and evangelism; making them more powerful, effective and fruitful. Acts 2:37-41 The fire of the Holy Spirit makes the negatives within us ineffective and destroyed. The fire of the Holy Spirit can also be used as a weapon in warfare to fight evil. Fire is part of God's nature. As fire is useful in the natural realm, it is also used in the spirit realm to accomplish a lot. Throughout the scriptures, God's Spirit is associated with fire. We are eve

Born Of The Spirit

John 3:6-8 God reproduces Himself. It is the will of God that His nature, virtues, and qualities are produced on the inside of you. The first Adam was created in the image and likeness of God. Genesis 1:27 In other words, Adam was created in the image and likeness of the Spirit. For God is Spirit. John 4:24 This was Adam's state and life until he lost it and became a carnal man. When Adam lost his spiritual nature, he lost the god side of him. By loosing his god side he lost his glory, his power, his rights and privileges as an individual blessed to be the god of the earth. It is not the will of God that man should not be like God. The original plan of God is that all human beings should be of the Spirit and like their maker. Genesis 5:1 We were originally created the gods of the earth. Genesis 1:28 We need to get back to being gods of the earth and spirit people who walk in dominion, power and glory. Walking in kingdom, power and glory is what God wants for you

Prayer And The Open Door

Revelation 3:8 There are great rewards that come as a result of having the strength to persist in prayer. One of such rewards is that God rewards those who endure and persist by giving them open doors. God is the God of the open door. Colossians 4:3 What is an open door? An open door represents opportunity. It represents a God given platform to make something happen for you, for your benefit. Open doors bring ease where things have been difficult. An open door is a divine chance. "Time and chance happeneth to them all" - Ecclesiastes 9:11 An open door from God happens in God's time. An open door means God's time to make a specific thing happen for you according to God's purpose has come. The uniqueness of an open door is that it's not for everyone, and it is not open to everyone. Isaiah 45:1 Open doors and open gates are the same thing. Open doors, open gates and open heavens are all from the same 'family'. Open doors are for those

VICTORY BY GOD'S SPIRIT

Luke 3:16 Victory is God's will for you. 1 John 5:4 Victory in areas where you need it is something God has packaged for you. Challenges may come, setbacks may occur, people may betray and disappoint you but at the end of the day victory will be yours. God wants you to manifest in victory. As God's child you can be victorious over sickness, disease and afflictions by God's Spirit. Matthew 10:1 You should be victorious over human and spiritual enemies by God's Spirit. Matthew 10:1 You should be victorious over poverty and unpleasant situations by God's Spirit. 2 Corinthians 9:8 You should be victorious because the blessing and the promises of God are yours. 2 Peter 1:4 Blessing is an empowerment to succeed. You can succeed because you are blessed with God's Spirit. You should be victorious because Jesus destroyed the power of the enemy over your life and He keeps doing so. 1 John 3:8 You should be victorious because the Holy Spirit is in you

The Three Virtues Of The Kingdom

Romans 14:17 The scripture above informs that "righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost is the kingdom of God. What we need to note and I emphasise about that scripture is the statement "in the Holy Ghost". There's a righteousness that's not of the Holy Ghost, and there's a joy that's not of the Holy Ghost. There is a type of peace that's not of the Holy Ghost. This type of peace does not last. Romans 14:17 shows us the Holy Ghost is a chief character in God's kingdom. If you don't have the Holy Ghost you can't manifest the kingdom, and you won't even make it into the kingdom. When Jesus Christ comes back for His people the Holy Ghost is what He will look for in people. Jesus is the Lord of the kingdom. Colossians 1:13 The kingdom of God can be likened to a gift the Father (Jehovah) gave the Son (Jesus/Yashua). The Holy Spirit and Jesus agree 1 John 5:8 Anywhere Jesus is, the kingdom is there. When Jesus appear

Kingdom Multiplication

Genesis 22:17 Multiplication, increase and growth is part of God's plan and intention for you. The kingdom of God is usually described as something small which grows into something big. Daniel 2:34-35 From the old testament into the new testament of the scriptures we see this pattern. Matthew 13:31-32 We cannot separate growth or multiplication from God's kingdom. A kingdom minded person is not a small minded person. You cannot be kingdom minded and have a small vision. You may start small but you will grow big. Job 8:7 In the book of Daniel, the kingdom is described as a small stone that grew into a big mountain. Jesus repeatedly shared parables about the kingdom. Growth and multiplication is one of the major things we glean when we study the kingdom parables of Jesus. Even nature (the second volume of God) shows us that growth is God's intention. Eg. babies of all animals and humans grow into adults, seeds grow into plants. The desire to grow and multi

Your Prayer And Your Worship

John 4:24 Worship is the lifestyle we are called to as kingdom people. Everything we do, sacrifice, and live out that pleases God and is our kingdom responsibility is worship. 1 Chronicles 16:23-31 Prayer is an aspect of our worship lifestyle. It's a no brainer that Christians are to live a lifestyle of prayer. Ephesians 6:18 Our worship is also what we do when we are adoring God in our hearts, and blessing God with our words through our mouth. Revelation 4:8-11 This aspect of worship can be a form of prayer also. That aspect of worship goes well with our communication with God (prayer). Every time we pray we are taking ourselves into God's presence. The scriptures tell us to come with a song, to come with praise, to come with a song of worship. Psalm 100:4 Worshipping God in the song and in the dance is not something we do in church assemblies to while away time or to wait for the chief speaker or pastor. Worshipping God in the song and dance is part of heave

Noiseless Prayers

Romans 8:26 The scripture passage above shows us there is something called noiseless prayers. If you are talking to a person who is near you, you do not need to scream for that person to hear you. The need to raise your voice becomes necessary when the person you're talking to cannot hear you or if that person is far away from us. When we pray we are directing our prayer to God, and God is not far from us. Acts 17:27 Our prayers are directed to a God who can hear us. God is not deaf! Psalm 94:9 You do not need to make noise to connect with God. 1 Samuel 1:13-17 You do not need to feel guilty you do not know how to pray as long, as hard, and scream as loud  as some people do when they pray. Matthew 6:5,7,8 The heart connection is the most important aspect of prayer, let your heart be connected to God when you're praying. 1Samuel 16:7 The presence of God's Holy Spirit within you is another requirement to answered prayer. Romans 8:26 We do not always know how

Kingdom Values

Matthew 6:21-33 We cannot seek first the kingdom of God if we don't place value on God's kingdom and if God's kingdom has not become valuable to us. Your values are your priority, standards and principles you live by. Your values are what shows what's important to you. The values we live by are very important. The values you hold dear will shape your life and determine the kind of person you will be. The values you have will determine your actions. The values formed within us is usually determined by our upbringing and environment. Every environment has it's own culture and value it passes into its people. As people from God's kingdom we should be full of kingdom values. God's kingdom has it's own values, so does Satan's kingdom which is also called the gates of hell. There is no point praying warfare prayers in the direction of the spiritual location of Satan's kingdom when the values of Satan's kingdom are in the heart of our

Prayer And Your Lifting

Isaiah 58:14 God is not a wicked God. Hebrews 6:10 It is not the will of God that His children remain at the same point and in the same predicament forever. Deuteronomy 2:3 It is God's will that you rise out of every unpleasant situation you have been in for so long. God is a God who compensates. God is a God who lifts people up. God is a God who promotes. God is a God who advances people. God is a God who blesses and removes sorrow. Proverbs 10:22 Things can go wrong, but prayer can rectify what has gone wrong. If things can go wrong they can also go right. Blind Bartimeus was lifted out of his misfortune when he cried out to Jesus in prayer. Mark 10:46-52 Jabeez was lifted out of his pit of continuous bitterness because he prayed. 1 Chronicles 4:9,10 Hannah was lifted out of the camp of the barren because she prayed. 1 Samuel 1:10-18 King David was lifted out of sorrow and recovered all that was stolen from him and his men because he prayed and God gave th

God & His Kingdom Family

Ephesians 2:19 God has a household/family. His family is part of His Kingdom. The kingdom of God has an Earthly presence and a heavenly and spiritual presence. Ephesians 3:15 We are a family in God's kingdom. The scriptures show us God's family is in heaven and also on Earth. At the end of age, the heavenly family and the earthly family will come together as one. Revelation 21:1-3 We all have different and unique personalities and assignments in this family but we are all bound by love. Love is that great quality and nature those in God's family and kingdom have. John 15:12 The Holy Spirit is part of this family. Jesus Christ is part of this family. Jehovah (the Father) is part of this family. Angels are part of this kingdom family and that's why angels are called sons of God. Job 2:1, Genesis 6:2 Whether winged angels or angels without wings, they are sons of God. Whether it's cherubims, seraphims or thrones (also called the 24 elders), they are

Understanding Divine Timing

1 Chronicles 12:32 God sees things differently from how men see things. 1 Samuel 16:7 Since God sees what we do not see, hears what we do not hear, and thinks differently than we do, He does things differently than we do. Isaiah 55:9 Since God does things differently than man does, He has a different timing to what people operate with. God is not limited to our 'chronos' chronolgical time. Acts 1:7 It is worth understanding divine timing. It is also possible to know God's time for a matter or have an idea of God's timing on an issue. The wise men knew the time the Savior was born. They understood divine timing. They were skilled in the ancient science of astronomy and they knew what the heaven was saying and could tell that an unusual star signified the birth of the Savior. This star guided them for two years to where Jesus was with his Earthly parents. Matthew 2:2 Matthew 2:9 Jesus knew God's time to do what needed to be done when He was here on Ear

Prayer & God's Wonders

Isaiah 9:6 Wonderful is one of the names of Jesus Christ. True to His name Jesus was a wonder on Earth. Mark 1:22 Wonderful means full of wonders. Jesus Christ is the legitimate authority who performs God glorifying wonders. Matthew 7:29 The Word is wonderful. Psalm 119:18 We are supposed to pray with God's Word and in line with God's Word. When we pray that way we are praying prayers full of wonders. We can tap into God's wonders through prayer. Jesus prayed wonderful prayers when He was here on Earth. He had results for the prayers He prayed, that's the same way we should have results when we pray in His name. John 16:24 The disciples of Jesus Christ saw the wonders the prayers of Jesus Christ generated and they were so impressed they asked Jesus to teach them to pray as John the disciples taught his own disciples. Prayer is taught. Luke 11:1 We should have open wonders of God's goodness in our lives. Jesus expects us to have results when we

Favor: A Kingdom Benefit

Psalm 8 shows us 'man' is God's favored creation. Favor is a benefit for those in God's Kingdom. Favor is a kingdom benefit of God's sons and daughters. Favor is one of the ways God brings about His purpose and plan in the life of His people here on Earth. We see from the scriptures that everyone who was a significant character for God's cause enjoyed favor. Eg. Daniel, Moses, Joseph, Esther, Gideon, and Jesus were favored to fulfill God's plan There is nothing ordinary about favor. Favor takes an individual from darkness to light. Favor has taken an individual from the prison to the palace before. Genesis 41:1-57 Favor made an individual who was a captive in a foreign and godless land rise to the top and serve under 4 kings who ruled that land. Daniel 2: 46-49 Favor was a part of the ministry and life of Jesus Christ. Jesus had favor with God and man. Luke 2:52 Favor releases God given opportunities and brings promotion to those God gives i

Prayer & The Beauty Of The Kingdom

Luke 16:16 God's kingdom is real, it is not a myth. God reigns forever and ever, God is a King so His kingdom is everlasting. Exodus 15:18 God's kingdom is not a product of man's imagination or fantasy. God's kingdom is not something Jesus made up because He had nothing to teach about. God's kingdom is where Jesus was operating from when He was here on Earth. John 3:12,13 It is a kingdom Jesus is King of and it's a realm He has experienced, seen, and known that's why He was qualified to talk and teach about it. Colossians 1:13 We live in a physical World. The Kingdom is not fully manifest in the World yet. It's a kingdom that's here now and we tap into what is ours in the kingdom through prayer. We press into this kingdom within us through prayer. The riches of God in glory is the kingdom of God's riches where the answer to our needs and requests in prayer come from. Philippians 4:19 Our prayers become effective when we connect

Kingdom, Power & Glory.

Matthew 6:13 (KJV) You are a creation of the glorious God. You are a glorious creation of God. Psalm 8 shows us how glorious man (humanity) is and how valuable we are to our creator. Everything God has created has it's own glory. There is greatness in all the works of God, and you are God's work. Psalm 92:5 You are a great person. You don't have to envy anyone or be jealous, you have your own glory given to you by God and it's your responsibility to make sure the enemy doesn't blind your eyes to it. We must not be like the brothers of Joseph. Joseph's brothers missed out on something pertinent in Joseph's dream - that they have glorious destinies themselves, that they are stars to! Genesis 37:9 They didn't realize they are stars because they were busy envying Joseph's favour, and in the process they were blinded to that important fact. If you are in Christ you are from God's kingdom. You're a prince or princess of God. Go

Reversing Unjust Situations.

Job 5:12 1 Corinthians 1:19 God is able to reverse unjust situations we find ourselves in. God is able to reverse everything the enemy has done to us. The enemy uses human agents, people, to try and harm us, to try and put us in unjust situations. God is able to frustrate the plans of the wicked to protect and preserve His own people and fulfill His plan. Unjust situations are situations that are not fair. Unjust situations are situations that are not in line with God's Word and promises for you. Unjust situations are situations that have come about in a life by the enemy when the individual was 'asleep'. Matthew 13:25 A season of being asleep could be a season of: a) Ignorance. Ephesians 4:18 b) Darkness. Luke 22:53 c) A time when the affected individual was not saved and the enemy came in. d) laziness, idleness or not engaging in warfare when you should have. Unjust situations can come about because the enemy is fighting back. Matthew 16:18 We can r

Kingdom Health

3 John 2 You should be healthy if you are in Christ Jesus. Divine health is your entitlement. A huge price has been paid for your health. Isaiah 53:5 Your health should not depend on doctors and the view or opinion of people. You should be healthy because the Holy Spirit is now in you. 1 Corinthians 6:19 You should be healthy because the Kingdom of God is now in you. Luke 17:21 You should be healthy because you now have a different kind of life within you, different from the life within the everyday person. John 3:16 You should be healthy because there are more than enough promises on health for you to claim in the scriptures. 2 Peter 1:4 Kingdom health is divine health. Kingdom health is the health eternal life supplies. Kingdom health is heaven's health. Kingdom health is health heaven supplies to the human body. Kingdom health is health the Holy Spirit supplies by quickening our mortal bodies. Romans 8:11 Kingdom health is God's desire and wish for you

Prayer & The Lies Of Satan

John 8:44 Satan's lies can easily be mistaken for truth. The lies of Satan are all around us. We live in a World where things should not be taken at face value. We live in times where things, people, and circumstances should be double checked in the light of God's Word. Revelation 2:2 The reason for this is because Satan's influence on this World is great, he has 'eaten' deep into the fiber of this World. 1 John 5:19 Deception is the art of Satan, lying is his language, and falsehood is his nature. 2 Corinthians 11:3 Many people who think they are fighting the enemy are under his grip and influence, and many who think Satan is bowing to their prayers are not praying right. But pray we must! In the place of prayer - strategies, revelation, and insight that puts us over the enemy is given. Ephesians 1:17 In the place of prayer our eyes are enlightened and angels go into operation for our benefit. Ephesians 1:18 In the place of prayer we are re-alig

THINGS MONEY CANNOT BUY.

Matthew 6:24 We live in a very materialistic World. We are in times where people see their worth based on their salaries, their profit, and how well their careers are going. Mark 10:17-22 Material things are not bad in themselves, wealth is not evil but the state of our heart towards money and material things can be a problem. Mark 10:22 Those who are followers of Christ are not supposed to think like everyone. We are supposed to think differently from people who do not know the Lord. Romans 12:2 When wealth and material things take the place God should occupy in our hearts, it's called Mammon. We are in times when Mammon has taken over the thinking of men's hearts. When people are governed by money and not God many things go wrong. Mark 10:23-25 The state of our heart needs to be checked and rectified if need be. Proverbs 4:23 Material things and money have a seducing power and pull that can pull us away from the right way. Proverbs 14:12 Money or wealth (m

Jesus & His Kingdom

Colossians 1:13 Jesus is the King of God's Kingdom. God's kingdom is called the kingdom of God's dear Son. We can't talk about Jesus without talking about the kingdom of God. We can't talk about the kingdom without talking about Jesus Christ. The kingdom is very important to God. The kingdom is very important to Jesus Christ. Matthew 9:35 Many of the teachings of Jesus was about the kingdom of God. Most of the parables Jesus Christ taught was about the kingdom of God. If the kingdom was the priority of Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit, then the kingdom of God should be our priority. The Holy Spirit was the Spirit at work in Jesus, so the teaching ministry of Jesus was the Holy Spirit teaching through Jesus. The kingdom of God is the pride of the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. God is proud of His kingdom. Revelation 21: 1-3 The kingdom of God is the glory, the pride, and reflection of the king's status. The kingdom of God is the juris

Prayer & The Positive Mindset.

Proverbs 23:7 A negative mindset will tarnish our lives. A negative mindset will affect our progress and set us backward. A negative mindset will hinder us from seeing and receiving all that God has for us. A positive mindset is a blessing to our lives. A positive mindset will support our faith. God is in support of His people thinking positively and seeing things positively. A positive mindset will also help us receive the answer to our prayers despite the difficult times around us. A positive mindset is an aspect of the mind of Christ. A positive mindset has to be developed. Romans 12:2 It will not always come naturally. There are many happenings in the World that's negative. The World system starts programming our minds to think negatively from a young age. This is why, to operate a positive mindset in a negative World is to swim against the wave and tide of this World. Even our giving is accepted by God based on the state of our heart. 2 Corinthians 9:7 Dev

The Kingdom & The Cross.

The Kingdom of God is part of the blessing of Jesus to us. The cross of Calvary was part of the major sacrifice of Jesus Christ to restore the blessing and open the access to God's Kingdom for God's people. Galatians 3:13,14 There is no salvation, no Christianity, no power, and no resurrection without the cross. 1 Corinthians 1:18 The message of the cross must be restored to the body of Christ. We must not forget the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, it happened for the kingdom to come to humanity, it happened so that Jesus Christ would be glorified, it happened so that the Holy Spirit can come to us. Hebrews 12:2 Jesus went to the cross for our advantage and our benefit. Jesus went to the cross to shame and defeat the devil. 1 Corinthians 2:8 Jesus went to the cross to rise to glory.

Your Prayer & Your Vengeance.

Romans 12:19 Many Christians think it is ungodly for a Christian to want vengeance, many think it is wrong to even think of being avenged; but this is not exactly right. God avenging His children is part of how He destroys the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8 God's avenging of His children is part of how He undoes the work of the enemy, giving us abundant life. John 10:10 Your vengeance is part of what Jesus came to the Earth for. Isaiah 61:2 Your vengeance is evidence that your God is alive. Asking God for vengeance is evidence of your faith. Luke 18:8 Your vengeance is an evidence of God's love and protection over you. God does not joke around with His children, He will confront with vengeance anyone who troubles them. Luke 17:1, 2 God is a God of vengeance. Isaiah 61:2 Many have heard or read about God being a God of grace, mercy, love, patience, long suffering, goodness etc, and rightly so.   But very few people know God as the God of vengeance and retribution.

The Power Of Divine Positioning.

Psalm 110:1, 2. It is important to be well positioned, being well positioned matters in life. God is a God of order, being well positioned is part of God's plan and order for your life. To be well positioned is to be at the right place and in the right post. We must be well positioned spiritually and physically. A person well positioned  spiritually is a person who will take the things of God seriously in the physical. They go to Zion, they love the assembly/mountain of God. They serve there in the position God has placed them. It's vital to be well positioned in life because life is likened to a battle and where you stay, where you are positioned determines your victory or failure during a battle. In a war or battle it is a fact that the fighter who is on an elevated or high platform/place stands at an advantage In life's battle, though our opposition may be great, we stand at an advantage because we are on a high platform. We are seated with Christ in the hea

Commendation Or Condemnation.

Matthew 25:31-46 There is a day God will judge everyone. When we stand before Him it is either God is pleased with us or not. It is either God is commending us or condemning us on that day. Matthew 25:32,33 God has the power to commend. God also has the power to condemn. God has the power and keys of heaven and hell. Revelation 1:18 When God commends a person, it means God is pleased and happy with that individual. It means God is praising that individual. It means God has approved the person. When God commends a person on the day of judgement, it means that person will spend an eternity with God. Matthew 25:46 This is the aim and hope of all Christians, that they will have God's commendation on judgement day. When God condemns a person, it is the opposite of God commending that person. It means God is not happy with such a person. It means God is displeased with such a person. It means that person is not in God's good books. If the person is condemned on j

Your Prayer & Your Co-operation.

Isaiah 1:18 The will of God is that you work with Him and co-operate with Him. God is a living, thinking, planning, strategic and miraculous Spirit who has given man free will. Free will means you're free to make your own decisions and make your own plans. The will of God for you is that you align your will with own will, in other words - cooperate with God. Your cooperation makes God bring your miracle to you. Your cooperation is your 'bone' that God receives from you to bring your need to you. Genesis 2:22 We can cooperate with God in the place of prayer. To cooperate with God in prayer is to let God's Spirit pray through you. Romans 8:26 To cooperate with God in prayer is to let our prayers line up with God's Word. To cooperate with God when it comes to prayer is to pray according to God's will.

Unlocking Heaven On Earth

Deuteronomy 11:21 Deuteronomy 28:1-13 Obedience to God attracts His blessing. His blessing makes our lives like heaven on earth. Consistently applying the keys of the Kingdom of God can turn our lives into heaven on earth. Matthew 16:19 Consistently applying the laws of the Kingdom of God can make our lives like heaven on earth. The Holy Spirit operates laws that are life changing. When Jesus was on earth He taught regularly about the Kingdom of God. The keys of the Kingdom and law of the Kingdom can change our lives. Jesus was excited to teach about the Kingdom because the Kingdom of God is the way to get humanity restored, fulfilled, and back to God's original pattern as we see with Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve lived a life of heaven on earth before sin came into the world. Applying the laws and principles of God's Kingdom will unlock heaven on earth for us. Using the "keys of the Kingdom"  which are also called the "mysteries of the Kingdom"

Understanding Kingdom Strategies.

Proverbs 24:6 (MSG translation) A strategy is a plan of action, a way, a positioning, and steps to be taken to get something done. God can give us winning strategies. 2 Samuel 5:17-25 Strategies lead to accomplishments and accomplishments bring joy and fulfillment. Only God can give you the best strategies for each situation. Many people do not associate words like planning, strategizing, documenting or writing with God. Such words are usually identified with the work place or cooperate environment. Many don't understand that God is a strategist and He gives strategies to get things done. God used Jethro, the father in-law of Moses to give Moses a strategy. God has the strategy you need for the things you want to accomplish. God plans, He is a planner. God writes, He is a writer. God also documents things. He has records of our entire life and every word we have ever spoken. God documents our words. Matthew 12:36 God has kingdom strategies for you. A kingdom st
