It Is Time To Step Out Of Flesh Comfort Zone!

Published in Articles

When we hear especially people we consider as men and women of God say to us 'your time has come" it is like music to our ears. We are immediately all excited because to the human ears, 'your time has come' from someone that we consider to be a true savant of God can only mean that the time has come for us to have everything we've been waiting on God for. In God's own perspective however, when your time comes it means it is time for you to leave your flesh comfort zone and step forward into the spiritual frontline and begin fulfilling His predestined  supernatural assignment for your life. Unfortunately, several people today no longer consider being called by God as meaning operating by the supernatural and not dwelling in the things of the natural, which of course is not an easy thing for us to do as natural human beings. Operating by the supernatural Will of God involves making all necessary natural sacrifices out of a selfless and not selfish heart for the sake of God's glory and not for the sake of our vainglory. 


The only way we can truly serve God for His glory sake is to desire to obey God, purely for His eternal life rewards for our souls and not just for the perishable things we see as benefit perks that we believe is worthy for a 'man or woman' of God to have. God's calling upon our lives is not for the sake of having all the perishable things of this temporary world but for the sake of inheriting His everlasting kingdom. However, from seeing all the glitz and glamour that are being showcased by end times believed 'men and women' of God,  most people these days mainly see the life of a 'man or woman of God' as a life of luxuries  and simply can't wait to be called by God so they too can have their own private jets and big mansions. Although God is indeed all for blessing us in all realms according to His own measure as long as we walk in obedience towards Him, He clearly does not desire for us to only seek Him simply for the sake of supplying us all our here and now worldly fleshy wants and desires. 


The fact of the matter is, when God calls us, He is indeed calling us to die to our flesh and step forward into spiritual warfront frontline and, by His dominion power and authority fish out the lost souls that are stubbornly  kept in the deep sea of sin by the spiritual pharaohs and babylonian dark forces of evil. To be at the frontline of spiritual warfront is clearly not an easy life under any circumstances. And I wonder how many people will still be readily willing to be used by God if they understand that being a savant of God actually involves making serious sacrifices as well as being on the firing line all the time and not necessarily living a natural world luxurious lifestyle as many has been led to believe! 


The fact of the matter is, serving your Godly purpose requires making sacrifices for the glory of God and not for the glory of your flesh. And the time you will begin to serve your purpose is at the point when you are readily willing to let go of your flesh desires and let God's desires for your life prevail. As detailed in the Bible, when Abraham's time came, he had to leave his folks and everything he was used to all his life behind in order to enter into a relationship journey with God. When Moses's time came he had to leave his comfort zone in Midian and return back to Egypt to fulfil God's assignment for His life. When Joshua's time came, he had to step into Moses's leadership shoes to fulfil God's assignment for his life, which is to lead the people of God to the Promise Land of Canaan. When Gideon's time came, he had to fulfil his God given life assignment, which is to face and battle the Midianites to deliver God's people in line with God's instructions. When Apostle Paul time came, he encountered Christ and Christ changed his name from Saul the Pharisee to Paul the Apostle and placed upon him the weight of glory to proclaim the Gospel not just to Jews but to both Jews and Gentiles. 


Abraham, Moses, Gideon, Joshua, Apostle Paul, Deborah and the likes of them, all fulfilled their assignments in their own time to the glory of God and left behind a Godly legacy that is blessing people from generation to generation. Today, we speak about them as heroes and we enjoy the fruits of their labour and we are benefactors of the sacrifices they all made to the glory of God. 


The question is what will your own legacy be? Are you still waiting on God when God is indeed waiting on you for you to step out of your fleshy comfort zone? Is your mindset all to do with what you want God to do for you for your own vainglory sake?  Are you seeking for God to please you by Him giving you everything you want from Him or seeking to please Him by surrendering your all to His divine Will and allowing His perfect Will for your life to be done irrespective of your natural world circumstances or situation?  Do you see yourself as a blessing candidate beyond the generation that you are in?  Are you ready to let go of all your worldly desires and allow God's heavenly desires for your life to prevail?  Are you ready to stop thinking about yourself and willingly ready to sacrifice your all for the sake of ensuring that others finds salvation in Christ to the glory of God? Are you looking to leave behind a Godly glorifying legacy that will continue to bless people from generation to generation? Are you ready to step out of the world racetrack and step into God's champions league eternal life racetrack? Are you readily prepared to die to your flesh, pick up your cross and follow Jesus to the finishing line? 


Serving our purpose in Christ in this fallen world of sin is of course not ordinarily an easy thing. Many saints have ended up disowned by their families and abandoned by friends simply for choosing to follow Christ. Some have ended up brutally murdered by demonic possessed beings. Indeed, contrary to the luxurious lifestyle that are being showcased by professed prosperity preachers as reward of service to God, several of genuine God's saints on earth are living a life that can be hardly termed as  luxurious in the natural sense. Many are daily subject to extreme trials and tribulations simply because of their dedication towards fulfilling God's mandate of salvation for mankind. And in the midst of their tough challenges, they continue to sacrifice all and function daily in their holy anointing to the glory of God, knowing very well that whatsoever we lose as flesh is indeed a gain in Christ. 


The truth of the matter is that, the only way your spirit man can eternally prosper is not by desiring the things of the world for the sake of feeding the lust of your flesh but by dying to the flesh. The flesh does not profit anyone (John 6:63). To die to flesh and live a righteous life of contentment in Christ is to eternally prosper and gain everything good in all dominion realms. Therefore, chose this day to lay down all your vainglory mind troubling crowns at the feet of Jesus. Surrender all to Him so that He can guide you to follow His righteousness path from beginning to the end and receive from Him at the end of your journey the eternal crown of glory.  Let go of your fleshy ways and let God have His divine ways for the goodness of your soul! 


The truth I must say definitely hurts the flesh but lies kills the soul. The flesh is an enemy of the spirit and the only way the spirit man can thrive is by crucifying our flesh. If you have read this far and you are soul heartedly willing to step out of your flesh comfort zone into flesh discomfort but soul edifying zone for the sake of eternal goodness of your spirit man, then your time really has come for you to shine for the legacy glory of God.  Jesus has finished the work of your redemption on the cross of Calvary. And as long as you are readily willing in your heart and soul to pick up your cross and follow Him to the finishing line, He will surely by His grace and mercies make it all possible for you to shine as a living star in His everlastingly limelight of glory. If Christ who is light be for you, then darkness cannot comprehend or apprehend you. Jesus as the Bright and Morning Star is indeed willing to brighten you and make you shine as His star if you are willingly ready to let go of your flesh. Seek Him with a genuine heart of serving His purpose for your life and not for your worldly wants and desires.   Christ as the All-in-all is more than able to do exceedingly more than you can ever desire of Him and He is indeed always able to make you more than you can ever dream of becoming. 



Shalom to all the saints out there that are daily busy spreading the legacy Word of God to His glory and for the benefit of human souls from generation to generation. 


Philippians 1:21


"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."

No Dead End With God

Published in Articles
"And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: 

But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it:and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea."

~ Exodus 14:13-16

When the children of Israel reached the red sea it seems from a natural perspective as if they have in fact reached a dead end especially with Pharaoh and his army relentlessly  chasing them behind. However, if God is on our side, what seems like a dead end in the natural is actually not a dead end at all. Rather, it is an event for a generational testimony to the glory of the supernatural God who as Almighty is able to do all things and work all things out for our good. God already foreknew that there is a red sea in the path of the Israelites journey. And He has already pre-planned to path the red sea for the children of Israel to walk through it even before the Israelites reached the brink of the red sea. The hardened heart of Pharaoh as clearly highlighted from the onset by God to Moses in (Exodus chapter 3), is actually not by Pharaoh's power and might but by power and might of God. God's dealing with Pharaoh and Egypt is synonymous with His judgement on Satan and the world of sin.  Egypt is symbolic of the world and Pharaoh is symbolic of Satan who sees himself as a god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:1-6). The red sea is symbolic of hell. And it is therefore no surprise that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh all the way through and eventually destroyed him and his soldiers in the red sea, which is symbolic of hell.

The world we are in is a spiritual Egypt. And the system of the world is an Egypt system formula orchestrated by the fallen angels to enslave man in sin. At the heart of this evil system is financial slavery. And the whole essence of enslaving man under a pyramid format Egypt formula system is to ensure that man focuses on his natural world survival and in so doing remain trapped in spiritual Egypt/Babylonian world of sin. Sadly, several human beings including so called men and women of God have sold their souls to the devil all because they consider doing so as the only means of escaping the financial slavery system in the world. And this of course is the ultimate intention of Satan to deceive man into believing that he is god and as a god, the only one who can enrich people provided they sell their souls to him. 

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36). 

The truth of the matter is, Satan has nothing to give but lies, sin and death. And those who have sold their souls to the devil are full of nothing but extreme pain and sorrow. The outward picture is nothing but deception. All they flash as riches in the natural is nothing more than vanity upon vanity. And except they become delivered and saved from Satan's hell prison by grace and mercy of God, they will forever remain dead and suffer permanent extreme pain all for a momentary so called worldly riches and fame. 

"Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said,

Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly" (Job 1:20-22). 

The fact is, no man brought anything whatsoever to the world. And none can take anything along with them  when it is time to exit this visible world to the invisible realm of the spirit, which is the permanent realm. It is therefore a terrible bad deal for a person to bow in worship to the devil and actually trade his or her soul for a perishable temporary thing, which adds no value whatsoever to the spirit man. The spirit man is the main being. The natural man will die and disintegrate into dust. How is it therefore a wise decision for a person to sell his or her soul just for temporary illusional worldly fame and fortune? 

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12). 

For the fact that we are spirit beings, the issue of whether a person is in the real sense poor or prosperous has to be determined by his or her spiritual status and circumstances and not by our physical situation or circumstances. Spiritually speaking, a person is either a slave to sin and death or a son of the Almighty God full of His dominion power and authority. Sonship is only possible through Christ Jesus. Therefore, outside of Christ there are no opportunity for sonship. And this is the main reason why those who are slaves in sin cannot possibly attest to sonship. We attest to sonship when we are delivered from slavery through the blood of Jesus Christ. And if through Christ we are sons of God who by the way owns all things, then it makes no sense to conclude we are poor simply because the natural circumstances, which by the way is not the entire evidence of our existence tends to suggest that we are poor and not rich. 

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint- heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together" (Romans 8:14-17). 

Poverty is an automatic outcome of slavery in sin. And prosperity is an automatic outcome of our sonship in Christ. God's deliverance and redemption mandate for us is not just to deliver us from the natural Egypt world.  But to deliver us from the spiritual Egypt/Babylonian world of sin and make us joint heirs of His eternal prosperous kingdom through Christ Jesus His only begotten Son (John 3:16-17).  The natural deliverance of children of Israel from Egypt is mainly a shadow of God's deliverance objective to deliver us from spiritual Egypt and Babylon through Christ Jesus. Through Christ's finished work of atonement and remission on the cross, we have perfect deliverance from the Egypt Babylonian world of Satan. And we are in Christ free from principalities chains and shackles irrespective of our natural situation and circumstances. 

As evidenced by the declarations of blessings in (Deuteronomy 28:1-14), God of course have a natural world prosperity mandate for His people. But we must understand that blessings from God's can only be on His own terms and not ours. Central to God's terms and condition for blessings is obedience to His righteousness standards and rules of life. And God expects us to obey Him irrespective of whether we are looking poor or rich from a natural analysis of prosperity or poverty perspective. We must for all intent and purposes in all situations remain continually convinced that we are partakers of the eternal riches of Christ and not get discouraged by the natural world outlook of things.  It is only in so doing that we will remain obedient to God and not branch off and join Satan's vanity gang all for the sake of an illusional fame and fortune.  

God is a covenant giver. And as a covenant giver He chooses at Will not for the sake of showing off or proving to man that He is able but simply to manifest His eternal frame predestined plans for man in the realm of time. Sowing all the so called tithes and offering in this world in heart and mind of greed, disobedience and covetousness will not lead to the abundance wealth release that the so called properity preachers endlessly preachers for the sake of stealing from the 'have nots' to line their own already heavy vanity riches pockets. God's release of wealth is for the fulfilment of His mandate and glory and not for the feeding of our flesh lusts. Therefore, our focus in our relationship with God must be on serving God because of who He is and not because of what He can give us. It is only by focusing on God and not on the things of the world that we will remain faithful to God irrespective of our situations and not end up falling for the wicked wiles of the devil. 

God as the Creator and our Father knows what is best for us to have. And a lot of the time His delay in releasing what He has promised us is to ensure we are fully made ready to handle it. Handling wealth comes with a huge responsibility. A lot of the time we crave for surplus wealth when we are not in actual fact matured enough to handle all the associated vanity spirits wealth attracts. Controlling wealth and distribution of wealth is central to Satan's pyramid slavery system agenda. Therefore to have wealth and lack humility, faith in God, trust and a constant mindset of responsibility and accountability towards God is to end up eventually destroyed by wealth. 

God's desire for us is not for us to perish in death and sin. But for us to be saved by His mercy and grace and inherit the non-perishable things. God knows what we are capable of handling. And He knows how to make possible the impossible. He knows how to supply our needs. He knows what is best for us. If God be for us, then whatsoever situation we are in is working together for our good and not against us. In Christ we are full of God's riches. And it is important that we are contented in all things and not allow our physical wants and desires pull us away from our God and Creator. 

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" 
(2 Corinthians 4:17-18). 

This world is only a temporary world. It will surely pass away but the kingdom of God endures forever. Contrary to what Satan will have us believe, God is the one in charge of all realms and not Satan. The natural is subject to the supernatural God and not God to the natural world. God as the supernatural God has the power to override the normal course of nature to deliver and manifest His entire deliverance and redemption objectives for mankind. God can see us in every red sea situation we can possibly find ourselves in. As the supernatural God, He is able to path every sea, rivers, bring down every wall of Jericho and make a roadway for us in the wilderness. All He seeks from us is that we walk by faith and not by by sight. God wants us to trust and rely on Him for who He is and not because of what we believe He can give us in this temporary world of sin. God is who He is regardless of our natural world circumstances. He remains a faithful God, Father, Ruler and Sovereign King irrespective of our natural situations and circumstances. God is a perfect Self-existing Spirit Being. And our relationship with God is a spiritual relationship. 

Our relationship with God as a spiritual relationship is governed by the rules of faith and not by the falsehood regime of sight. For by sight it is impossible to diligently obey and serve God in spirit and truth (Hebrews 11:6). The devil of course knowing very well that only by faith can we obey and truthfully serve God does not want us to walk by faith but by sight. The devil is fully aware of the fact that by sight we will be blinded by fear and in fear, it will be impossible for us to see that through Christ's finished work on the cross, God has indeed made a roadway for us in the wilderness and a pathway in the midst of the world sea realm to reach His eternal Promise Land. 

God is not a man that He should boast or lie. He is a faithful God. And no matter how dead end looking your situation might be looking today, I want you to know that if God be on your side, you cannot be at a dead. Shut the eyes of sight and open the eyes of faith with praise and worship of the living God. In the midst of trials, God is working out a triumphant testimony for you. In the midst of your tribulations, God is perfecting your faith in Him. In the midst of seem like a dead end, God is positioning you in His predestined plan for your life. In the midst of all, God is making you to see and to understand that He Was, Is and ever shall be the supernatural God. And as long as He is on your side, you cannot suffer a dead end. 

Remain in good cheer. Satan and his entourage of evil are in hell where God sentenced them to and they cannot come out. God is forever seated on His judgement throne. And if He is for you, then be rest assured that no gates of hell can ever prevail against you. Amen. 

Isaiah 43:14-21

"Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

I am the Lord, your Holy One,
the creator of Israel, your King.
Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power;
they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

Remember ye not the former things,
neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls:
because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert,
to give drink to my people, my chosen.

This people have I formed for myself;
they shall shew forth my praise."

Perfect Deliverance

Published in Articles

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). 


There are all kinds of things done in the so called church arena today all in the name of deliverance. The variety of activities termed as deliverance or deemed as religious acts for breakthroughs includes; the endless drinking and rubbing of olive oil, people summersaulting from one end to the other at the waving of the hands of a professed man or woman of God, the endlessly bathing in rivers, washing with one soap or the or other, and shockingly enough recently the eating of grass. 


Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding of the Word of God in its whole contextual form is that deliverance from sins and death is only possible through the atonement and remission blood of Jesus Christ. And what greater breakthrough can there be than to overcome death and sin through the remission and atonement blood of Jesus? (Revelation12:11). One cannot but wonder sometimes as to why people who are already experiencing all kinds of financial hardship are vigorously and readily prepared to purchase all manner of expensive soap and water and often times overly priced bottles of olive oil all in the name of deliverance or breakthroughs when the blood of Jesus is actually freely available and it is in fact the only thing that can do the job they are after. 


The truth of the matter is people wants deliverance, blessings, breakthroughs of all sorts but not the holiness and righteousness of God. And to seek deliverance, blessings breakthroughs and so on and so forth outside of will and desire for righteousness and holiness of God is to end up heavily deceived by the devil. If indeed our true desire are all to do with abiding in the righteousness and holiness of God then we will not be chasing or pursuing deliverance and so on away from the atonement and remission blood of Jesus Christ. 


The power and blessings of God are not for sale. There are no amount of tithes or monetary seeds we can ever sow that will entitle us to God's power or His true blessings. Our only means of activating God's blessings upon our lives is to desire His righteousness and holiness with a genuine heart of humility. Whilst it is good to support the ministry work of God with money, it is important we understand that the one thing God  first and foremost needs from us is actually our hearts so He can circumcise it and make us ready for eternal abiding with Him in His everlasting kingdom, and not at all our money (Mathew 6:33). 


The work of God is already finished, done and dusted in Christ. And none can be a partaker of the endless blessings attached to God's finished work outside of blood of Jesus Christ. To try and obtain the blessings of God outside of the blood of Jesus is to end up deeper in sin and in bondage. And to be in bondage is to end up supporting all the wrong causes in gambling mindset of 'if I sow this amount, God will double it shake it all together and give it back to me'. To support anything in gambling mindset is to end up duped by those whose primary intentions are to collect the little you have from you and leave you out of pocket for the sake of enriching themselves and feeding their fleshy lusts. 


We will only succeed in sowing the right seeds in the right kingdom soil to the glory of God if our hearts are first and foremost circumcised. Any seed sowed out of greed, lusts, fleshy desires and from an uncircumcised heart is guaranteed to fall into dry land. And as such, impossible of producing any genuine harvests, real breakthroughs or good returns from God for the human sower of the seed. 


God Is, Was, and forever shall be the Almighty and All-powerful God. And God indeed has called us to power but this power is something we can only have and operate in if we are in reconciliation with His Holy Spirit through Christ and never outside of His Holy Spirit. Whilst I fully understand the manifested authority of God takes place through the laying of our anointed hands, it is essential that we do not readily consider every act of laying of hands as an act of God. The devil as a counterfeiter has also appointed his agents to lay evil hands on people.  And it is extremely important that we do not confuse the devil's evil show business of masquerading the unleashing of demons on people through the laying of hands by his agents with the Father's own laying of hands good business. 


God's deliverance power is executed through the power and authority He has invested in the name of Jesus Christ. And if we truly surrender our hearts to Christ as God's holiness and righteousness manifested in the flesh, He will indeed afford us freedom and perfect deliverance from sins and give us complete breakthrough from everything the devil can possibly use to give us a breakdown. The power of God is not for show or entertainment. Anything that is for show is not of God but of the devil. And in this crucial hour of the end times and with the influx of all kinds of show business and entertainment going on in the Church arena that are masqueraded as manifestations of God's power and His genuine authority, it is indeed so important like never before that we operate in discernment power of the Almighty God and thoroughly test all spirits (1 John 4:1-4). 


So, help us all God! 


Hebrews 10:14-18


"For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.


Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us:for after that he had said before,


This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 


And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin".

True Deliverance

Published in Articles

True Deliverance from the effects of sins can only take place through true repentance. The consequences of sins is death and death is a curse. We need to repent from sins in order for us to have true deliverance from the consequences of sins. The truth of the matter however, is that people wants deliverance, the blessings of God, breakthroughs of all sorts, but not the holiness and righteousness of God.

Seeking for true deliverance, blessings breakthroughs and so on and so forth outside of a will and desire for God’s righteousness and holiness to end up heavily deceived by the devil. If indeed our true desire are to do with abiding in the righteousness and holiness of God, then we will not be chasing after true deliverance and so on away from the atonement and remission blood of Jesus Christ.

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).

There are all kinds of things done in the so called church arena today all in the name of true deliverance. The variety of activities termed as deliverance or deemed as religious acts for breakthroughs includes;

  • The endless drinking and rubbing of olive oil,
  • People summersaulting from one end to the other at the waving of the hands of a professed man or woman of God,
  • People endlessly bathing in rivers, washing with one soap or the or other, and shockingly enough recently,
  • The eating of grass.
God’s Word Is Our Weaponof Dicernment:

Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding of the Word of God in its whole contextual form is that true deliverance from sins and consequences of sins, which is death is possible only through the atonement and remission blood of Jesus Christ. What greater breakthrough can we possibly have beyond overcoming death and sin through the remission and atonement blood of Jesus? (Revelation12:11).

One cannot but wonder sometimes as to why people who are already experiencing all kinds of financial hardship are vigorously and readily prepared to partake in all manner of things all in the name of true deliverance for instance:

  • The purchasing of expensive soap and water
  • Sow their so called monetary seed blindly due their covetousness
  • Invest in overly priced bottles of olive oil all in the name of deliverance
  • Jumping from one deliverance conference to another seeking blindly for breakthroughs and deliverance when the blood of Jesus is actually freely available and it is in fact the only thing that can do the job they are after.
The Power behind Deliverance:

The power of true deliverance belongs to God and not man. The power and blessings of God are of course not for sale. There are no amount of tithes or monetary seeds we can ever sow, that entitle us to having God's power or His true blessings. Our only means of activating God's blessings upon our lives is to desire His righteousness and holiness with a genuine heart of humility.

Sow Your Seed in Obedience and Not In Covetousness:

Whilst it is good to support the work of God with monetary seeds, it is important we understand that the one thing God first and foremost needs from us is actually our hearts so He can circumcise it and make us ready for eternal abiding with Him in His everlasting kingdom, and not at all our money (Mathew 6:33).

The work of God is already finished, done and dusted in Christ. And none can be a partaker of the endless blessings attached to God's finished work outside of blood of Jesus Christ. Therefore, whosoever seeks to obtain the blessings of God outside of the blood of Jesus will only end up deeper in sin and in bondage. The work of God can indeed do with our monetary support, it is important that we only sow our seeds in heart of obedience so that we avoid  supporting all the wrong causes in the gambling mind-set of  'if I sow this amount, God will double it shake it all together and give it back to me'.

Always Give With a Circumcised Heart:

We will only succeed in sowing the right seeds in the right kingdom soil to the glory of God if our hearts are first and foremost circumcised. Any seed sowed out of greed, lusts, and fleshy desires and with an uncircumcised heart is guaranteed to fall into dry land. A seed that is sowed with the wrong heart into the wrong foundational ground cannot produce any genuine harvests, real breakthroughs or good returns from God for the human sower of the seed. We must always sow our seeds with a heart full of humility and in obedience to God. Supporting any so-called ministry work in gambling mind-set is to end up duped by those whose primary intentions are to collect the little you have from you and leave you out of pocket for the sake of enriching themselves and feeding their fleshy lusts.

Don’t Confuse Magic with Miracle:

God Is, Was, and forever shall be the Almighty and All-powerful God. God has indeed called us to function and operate in His dominion power and authority. However, we can only have and operate in God’s dominion power and authority if we are in reconciliation with His Holy Spirit through Christ and not outside of His Holy Spirit.

Whilst I fully understand the manifested authority of God takes place through the laying of our anointed hands, it is essential that we do not readily consider every act of laying of hands as an act of God. The devil as a counterfeiter has also appointed his agents to lay evil hands on people.  And it is extremely important that we do not confuse the devil's evil show business of masquerading the unleashing of demons on people through the laying of hands by his agents with the Father's own manifestation of His deliverance through the laying of hands of His truly appointed.

Surrender Your All to Christ Jesus:

God's true deliverance power is executed through the power and authority that He has invested in the name of Jesus Christ. God will indeed afford us freedom and true deliverance from sins and give us complete breakthrough from everything the devil can possibly use to give us a breakdown if we truly surrender our hearts to Christ as God's holiness and righteousness manifested in the flesh. The power of God is not for show or entertainment.

Anything that is for show is not of God but of the devil. In this crucial hour of the end times and with the influx of all kinds of show business and entertainment going on in the Church arena that are masqueraded as manifestations of God's deliverance power, it is indeed important like never before for us to operate in Godly discernment and thoroughly test all spirits as highlighted in the Bible (1 John 4:1-4).

Where There Is Remission – No More Offering For Sins:

Hebrews 10:14-18

"For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin".

No dead end with God.

"And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: 

But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it:and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea."

~ Exodus 14:13-16

When the children of Israel reached the red sea it seems from a natural perspective as if they have in fact reached a dead end especially with Pharaoh and his army relentlessly  chasing them behind. However, if God is on our side, what seems like a dead end in the natural is actually not a dead end at all. Rather, it is an event for a generational testimony to the glory of the supernatural God who as Almighty is able to do all things and work all things out for our good. God already foreknew that there is a red sea in the path of the Israelites journey. And He has already pre-planned to path the red sea for the children of Israel to walk through it even before the Israelites reached the brink of the red sea. The hardened heart of Pharaoh as clearly highlighted from the onset by God to Moses in (Exodus chapter 3), is actually not by Pharaoh's power and might but by power and might of God. God's dealing with Pharaoh and Egypt is synonymous with His judgement on Satan and the world of sin.  Egypt is symbolic of the world and Pharaoh is symbolic of Satan who sees himself as a god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:1-6). The red sea is symbolic of hell. And it is therefore no surprise that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh all the way through and eventually destroyed him and his soldiers in the red sea, which is symbolic of hell.

The world we are in is a spiritual Egypt. And the system of the world is an Egypt system formula orchestrated by the fallen angels to enslave man in sin. At the heart of this evil system is financial slavery. And the whole essence of enslaving man under a pyramid format Egypt formula system is to ensure that man focuses on his natural world survival and in so doing remain trapped in spiritual Egypt/Babylonian world of sin. Sadly, several human beings including so called men and women of God have sold their souls to the devil all because they consider doing so as the only means of escaping the financial slavery system in the world. And this of course is the ultimate intention of Satan to deceive man into believing that he is god and as a god, the only one who can enrich people provided they sell their souls to him. 

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36). 

The truth of the matter is, Satan has nothing to give but lies, sin and death. And those who have sold their souls to the devil are full of nothing but extreme pain and sorrow. The outward picture is nothing but deception. All they flash as riches in the natural is nothing more than vanity upon vanity. And except they become delivered and saved from Satan's hell prison by grace and mercy of God, they will forever remain dead and suffer permanent extreme pain all for a momentary so called worldly riches and fame. 

"Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said,

Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly" (Job 1:20-22). 

The fact is, no man brought anything whatsoever to the world. And none can take anything along with them  when it is time to exit this visible world to the invisible realm of the spirit, which is the permanent realm. It is therefore a terrible bad deal for a person to bow in worship to the devil and actually trade his or her soul for a perishable temporary thing, which adds no value whatsoever to the spirit man. The spirit man is the main being. The natural man will die and disintegrate into dust. How is it therefore a wise decision for a person to sell his or her soul just for temporary illusional worldly fame and fortune? 

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12). 

For the fact that we are spirit beings, the issue of whether a person is in the real sense poor or prosperous has to be determined by his or her spiritual status and circumstances and not by our physical situation or circumstances. Spiritually speaking, a person is either a slave to sin and death or a son of the Almighty God full of His dominion power and authority. Sonship is only possible through Christ Jesus. Therefore, outside of Christ there are no opportunity for sonship. And this is the main reason why those who are slaves in sin cannot possibly attest to sonship. We attest to sonship when we are delivered from slavery through the blood of Jesus Christ. And if through Christ we are sons of God who by the way owns all things, then it makes no sense to conclude we are poor simply because the natural circumstances, which by the way is not the entire evidence of our existence tends to suggest that we are poor and not rich. 

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint- heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together" (Romans 8:14-17). 

Poverty is an automatic outcome of slavery in sin. And prosperity is an automatic outcome of our sonship in Christ. God's deliverance and redemption mandate for us is not just to deliver us from the natural Egypt world.  But to deliver us from the spiritual Egypt/Babylonian world of sin and make us joint heirs of His eternal prosperous kingdom through Christ Jesus His only begotten Son (John 3:16-17).  The natural deliverance of children of Israel from Egypt is mainly a shadow of God's deliverance objective to deliver us from spiritual Egypt and Babylon through Christ Jesus. Through Christ's finished work of atonement and remission on the cross, we have perfect deliverance from the Egypt Babylonian world of Satan. And we are in Christ free from principalities chains and shackles irrespective of our natural situation and circumstances. 

As evidenced by the declarations of blessings in (Deuteronomy 28:1-14), God of course have a natural world prosperity mandate for His people. But we must understand that blessings from God's can only be on His own terms and not ours. Central to God's terms and condition for blessings is obedience to His righteousness standards and rules of life. And God expects us to obey Him irrespective of whether we are looking poor or rich from a natural analysis of prosperity or poverty perspective. We must for all intent and purposes in all situations remain continually convinced that we are partakers of the eternal riches of Christ and not get discouraged by the natural world outlook of things.  It is only in so doing that we will remain obedient to God and not branch off and join Satan's vanity gang all for the sake of an illusional fame and fortune.  

God is a covenant giver. And as a covenant giver He chooses at Will not for the sake of showing off or proving to man that He is able but simply to manifest His eternal frame predestined plans for man in the realm of time. Sowing all the so called tithes and offering in this world in heart and mind of greed, disobedience and covetousness will not lead to the abundance wealth release that the so called properity preachers endlessly preachers for the sake of stealing from the 'have nots' to line their own already heavy vanity riches pockets. God's release of wealth is for the fulfilment of His mandate and glory and not for the feeding of our flesh lusts. Therefore, our focus in our relationship with God must be on serving God because of who He is and not because of what He can give us. It is only by focusing on God and not on the things of the world that we will remain faithful to God irrespective of our situations and not end up falling for the wicked wiles of the devil. 

God as the Creator and our Father knows what is best for us to have. And a lot of the time His delay in releasing what He has promised us is to ensure we are fully made ready to handle it. Handling wealth comes with a huge responsibility. A lot of the time we crave for surplus wealth when we are not in actual fact matured enough to handle all the associated vanity spirits wealth attracts. Controlling wealth and distribution of wealth is central to Satan's pyramid slavery system agenda. Therefore to have wealth and lack humility, faith in God, trust and a constant mindset of responsibility and accountability towards God is to end up eventually destroyed by wealth. 

God's desire for us is not for us to perish in death and sin. But for us to be saved by His mercy and grace and inherit the non-perishable things. God knows what we are capable of handling. And He knows how to make possible the impossible. He knows how to supply our needs. He knows what is best for us. If God be for us, then whatsoever situation we are in is working together for our good and not against us. In Christ we are full of God's riches. And it is important that we are contented in all things and not allow our physical wants and desires pull us away from our God and Creator. 

"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" 
(2 Corinthians 4:17-18). 

This world is only a temporary world. It will surely pass away but the kingdom of God endures forever. Contrary to what Satan will have us believe, God is the one in charge of all realms and not Satan. The natural is subject to the supernatural God and not God to the natural world. God as the supernatural God has the power to override the normal course of nature to deliver and manifest His entire deliverance and redemption objectives for mankind. God can see us in every red sea situation we can possibly find ourselves in. As the supernatural God, He is able to path every sea, rivers, bring down every wall of Jericho and make a roadway for us in the wilderness. All He seeks from us is that we walk by faith and not by by sight. God wants us to trust and rely on Him for who He is and not because of what we believe He can give us in this temporary world of sin. God is who He is regardless of our natural world circumstances. He remains a faithful God, Father, Ruler and Sovereign King irrespective of our natural situations and circumstances. God is a perfect Self-existing Spirit Being. And our relationship with God is a spiritual relationship. 

Our relationship with God as a spiritual relationship is governed by the rules of faith and not by the falsehood regime of sight. For by sight it is impossible to diligently obey and serve God in spirit and truth (Hebrews 11:6). The devil of course knowing very well that only by faith can we obey and truthfully serve God does not want us to walk by faith but by sight. The devil is fully aware of the fact that by sight we will be blinded by fear and in fear, it will be impossible for us to see that through Christ's finished work on the cross, God has indeed made a roadway for us in the wilderness and a pathway in the midst of the world sea realm to reach His eternal Promise Land. 

God is not a man that He should boast or lie. He is a faithful God. And no matter how dead end looking your situation might be looking today, I want you to know that if God be on your side, you cannot be at a dead. Shut the eyes of sight and open the eyes of faith with praise and worship of the living God. In the midst of trials, God is working out a triumphant testimony for you. In the midst of your tribulations, God is perfecting your faith in Him. In the midst of seem like a dead end, God is positioning you in His predestined plan for your life. In the midst of all, God is making you to see and to understand that He Was, Is and ever shall be the supernatural God. And as long as He is on your side, you cannot suffer a dead end. 

Remain in good cheer. Satan and his entourage of evil are in hell where God sentenced them to and they cannot come out. God is forever seated on His judgement throne. And if He is for you, then be rest assured that no gates of hell can ever prevail against you. Amen. 

Isaiah 43:14-21

"Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

I am the Lord, your Holy One,
the creator of Israel, your King.
Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power;
they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

Remember ye not the former things,
neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls:
because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert,
to give drink to my people, my chosen.

This people have I formed for myself;
they shall shew forth my praise."
